Anarch Pre-ordered this on the basis of No Mans Land. I love the sense of urgency in the music and the vocals, a real uplifting, fast paced show stopper. I am rubbish at describing how a song sounds but that's how I see it. It reminded me of my first listen to MC5, not saying they sound the same but it just invoked some memories. Really looking forward to hearing the rest.

Track Name: No Man's Land
I wonder if she’ll spin
Another web
Or if she sets aside the time
To make amends instead

But I doubt that self reflection
Is in her head
She’ll pass around that book
Until there’s no more pages left

It must have just been something
That I said
I opened up that broken heart
To flick it of my chest

I wana know where the spotlight shines
I wana know Where the blame illuminates

[Chorus]
So now they’re Scratching at my window
now they’re scratching at my door
It was a type open mind invasion
A kind that no man can ignore

And I’m still waiting for a call back
I’m still waiting for that call
I close my eyes and I still see you
With a mind that’s never felt this small

And no one seems to hold an arm out
No one seems to get involved
I’ve been cast out into no mans land
In a war that’s unresolved

And I’ve been firing all my bullets
I’ve used all my magazines
I’m still captain of this sinking ship
But I won’t by any means
Go down like I’m a dying breed yeah

Pictures of my self
On my wall
Reflections of the time
When imperfections weren’t involved

I whisper to my self
What I know
Crippled by the tide
Of always feeling unresolved

And it must have been when I
Was still involved
Been Chasing my own tail while
While all my enemies had evolved

I wana know where the spotlight shines
I wana know where the blame illuminates

[Chorus]
So now they’re Scratching at my window
now they’re scratching at my door
It was a type open mind invasion
A kind that no man can ignore

And I’m still waiting for a call back
I’m still waiting for that call
I close my eyes and I still see you
With a mind that’s never felt this small

And no one seems to hold an arm out
No one seems to get involved
I’ve been cast out into no mans land
In a war that’s unresolved

And I’ve been firing all my bullets
I’ve used all my magazines
I’m still captain of this sinking ship
But I won’t by any means
Go down like I’m a dying breed yeah

I wana know where the spotlight shines
I wana know where the blame illuminates
I wana know where the spotlight shines
I wana know where the blame illuminates

Chorus
So now they’re Scratching at my window
now they’re scratching at my door

I’m still waiting for that call

With a mind that’s never felt this small

And no one seems to hold an arm out
No one seems to get involved
I’ve been cast out into no mans land
In a war that’s unresolved

And I’ve been firing all my bullets
I’ve used all my magazines
I’m still captain of this sinking ship
But I won’t by any means
Go down
