You came up Inside our home And everything you own All of what I know Its hard to ask About those things When I all I feel is numb Always on my phone So clearly The way that I could be Led by Misery Stuck round for less And hope for the best Im not where I need Changing by the sea
2.
Keep it in the bottle Hide from all the friends I keep I don’t need a legacy I just need to get some sleep Keep it in the bottle Hide from all the friends I keep I don’t need a legacy I just need to get some sleep Keep it from the bottom Hide behind the friends I see I wish I was where I need I just think its never been Keep it from the bottom Hide behind the friends I see I wish I was where I need I just think its never been Oh, we’ll repair it on the run Oh, we’ll repair it just for fun I get up And come around And make pretend Im welcome We fell out, we fell down You look at me like I’m a ghost I get up And come around And make pretend Im welcome We fell out, we fell down You look at me like I’m a ghost I get up And come around And make pretend Im welcome We fell out, we fell down You look at me like I’m a ghost I get up And come around And make pretend Im welcome We fell out, we fell down You look at me like I’m a ghost

Get Along 03:31
How long till I overcome? All the high risk You never seem to know When Im hiding Its getting all too old Something like that, like that I don’t even want You’re getting by alone I couldn’t be your left side I never tried to understand the words that were lost on I couldn’t be your left side Taking apart the pieces that were Like it was All beside the soul Breaking at the bridges Im just running from But how much will I get up? How much will I tell for having all? 15 till its over now Im breaking down the what ifs in my mind You’re getting by alone And you always say I couldn’t be your left side Its only when you need someone to hold But its not there Distract myself from The one you see when Im tired Get in the door before it rains out
4.
Its always time to head And all Something that I know How long till I? How long will I try? And I’m filling up the edge With socialites on top And I’m feeling close to this How long of following the trend? How long? When you start trying to piece it to an end Oh, were figuring out Everything about, everything about
5.
Attempt 04:41 video
Turn off the lights again I’m Falling off I never thought I did But I guess not And it’s always, you fall apart It’s the old days That keep you warm I never lasted more than you thought I’m less alone Everybody turns from the wall Reaching for the fault from afar Left on a broken note you hide your hand I scraped the skin off of the only strand But it’s ok, you’ve had enough Getting on your, getting on your own I never had a thing to pull from I’m less alone Everybody turns from the wall Reaching for the fault from afar You know you’d do it for her

Wandering out Take for granted Did I refuse myself, or is that just how? All the planning, did you like that? Did I begin to break, As all the things passed away?
7.
Hold out Ill be right there Feel like I’ve been only Inside where I hold it Good find while I call How long are you waiting? Tell that I’ve been off Look by, under-felt Good for making more Come down and waste with me All you can wait and see You never liked me And Im so tired I’m barely here at all So un-required the feelings I control On the side, I never want to know Goodbye Come down and waste with me All you can wait and see You never liked me Come down and waste with me All you can wait and see You never liked me
8.
It’s all that I have got You pressed it in my side As I begin to rot You came on by The words they feel so stale Our Past Lives Return onto a way To hold on time Don’t you ever feel, How could this be real? And why should I reveal? Waiting for the time All of my lifetime All of my lifetime It’s all that I am not Forget the words you tried As I begin to talk You make your mind So tired of turning pale Our past lives Return to how it stays To hold on mine Don’t you ever feel, How could this be real? And why should I reveal? Waiting for the time All of my lifetime All of my lifetime
9.
Brother 02:53
Brother please Will you stay with me? Stay and see it isn’t what you know Stay inside Where I find reside You could help me by Letting me look up Lonely have I, been my whole life Tell me how it gets better in time Its always like you said, Im better out of my head I’m out of my head No I, Getting into daytime Im finding my own strength Only if I speak the way you told it Im barely even focused I know I never say that But your the one I see And what’s all this noise? Im hearing my own voice Tell him how it is now brother And listen when I say Im getting out of my head And all this seems to help me out of my own
10.
Moon Tower 05:05
I’ll follow you into The dark The light is shining through Your arms And every time I call The old Moon Tower You are always there You’re always warm Go on ahead everyone knows Go on ahead everyone knows You’re on your own Go on ahead Go on ahead everyone knows I’ll follow you into The dark The sun is shining through The car And in 10 years time Will this mean anything to us? Cause I’m out of control It doesn’t matter how much Go on ahead everyones gone Go on ahead everyones gone And you’re on your own
11.
Reach You 03:02
Just as I awake You know I Was always wrong Find it hard to break And so I think On the phone I will reach you For the words don’t seem to know I will reach you After all Feel it coming down So I say You never won Breaking at the old Smile and pose Its like you all Its like you I will reach you For my words don’t seem to hold I will reach you As the words start coming up As the words start filling up
12.
Dont think too much Understand it only takes a while your down I feel it all Something takes hold Every time there’s people like us Tell me when you’re seeing the fall out from this Your skin and bones Questioning it all, again But its so hard to find the time Hard to find it even when you feel like you’ve won Leave it on the side by its own to fall out You’re selling everything you own Hows it feeling? You never seemed to find a home Nothings real now You’re selling everything you own Hows it feeling? Hows it feeling now? Hows it feeling now?
13.
Stay by the fire Won’t be a while Oh I know Time moves slow Afraid of the light Built by design To lose control Oh I know And sometimes I feel I’m hanging on And all the times we had Now you’re gone
14.
Plans 03:56 video
See these plans I’ve made for you See you smiling, what a view If we close our eyes then That’s all we can do I don’t know what this presence is But all of me has entered in Im seeing now the things that Could tell us how to dim Let me lean on God Let me wait for love Out of space isnt far away We could go there in march or may Then id be closer to the things that are in my head Faith restored from start to end She smiles politely to her friend This is all I needed To feel something new again Let me lean on God Let me wait for love Oh, it took long enough to mend I keep falling off Was it something that I said? Its so easy to judge Let me lean on God Let me wait for love
15.
House 04:17
I don’t like Much about this town Its not, for me You sit on this fence line Tell me its just for a while Waiting for a punchline to write Im just bored I don’t like Much about myself Im not, Strong enough to want to get out All I see is my house Waiting for her to arrive Im bored
16.
Sun Room 03:55 video
I was in the air Called me when you found it Pulling out your hair It fell down around you Colder now, in the summer Harder now you’re not around Couldn’t find the nerve To tell you how I’m feeling Saw you laying there Staring at the ceiling Older now, in a sun room Wishing that you were still around Folded up in your own head Waiting here for you to make a sound I was in the air Called me when you found it Age doesn’t seem to care You felt so astounded Colder now, by the lake home Time just seemed to take its toll Wondering how you felt then Wondering how to hear your soul And oh, there it is Your gone in the evening
17.
Hold out Ill be right there Feel like I’ve been only Inside where I hold it Good find while I call How long are you waiting?

about

The debut album from Far Caspian.

From Joel (Far Caspian):

I began writing for this album in Feb 2020. The original plan was to write/record between the tours that had been planned for the year but by March everything was starting to get cancelled. This gave me a whole a year to fully focus on making a record. I was originally really inspired by 90’s shoe gaze like Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine and wanted to try do a new version of that. But within a few months I realised I would only be pigeon holing myself by labelling it as a shoe gaze record. I began gravitating more towards Alternative music from the early to mid 2000’s like The Postal Service, The Radio Dept, Broken Social Scene and The Walkmen. This felt more like home for me in terms of nostalgia because although I was born in the 90’s, I can’t really remember much of it! My music Nostalgia starts around 2003. I wanted to try and create a record that had hints of that time period in it whilst still holding on to what people had known me for up to this point.

The Album as a whole is about the things I’ve came across in my twenties but can be applied to any transitional period in life. Some topics I cover are depression and anxiety, tired relationships that have probably been dragged out for too long, feeling stuck within a scenario and place, Nostalgia and wishing things were easy like childhood, rejecting your identity and becoming someone else, chronic illness, family dynamics, death and religion.

‘Ways to get out’ is whatever the listener wants it to be…Ways to get out of a small town, Ways to get out of a relationship, ways to get out of your own head.
