All of your albums have been amazing. I've bought this on many services but as they continue to restrict what you can listen to on what format I'm buying again on only honest format out there in my view. My favorite band of all time.

Brian Glanville After two phenomenal albums – plus several fantastic EPs, singles, etc – and a twelve-year wait, I was unsure what to expect from Blue Blood, but I'm absolutely ecstatic over what Anderson and Harris have delivered. It’s hard to imagine hearing a better album in 2019, or 2020 for that matter. Favorite track: Saboteur.

Cameron Rostami I say without hyperbole that this is the single most anticipated album of my whole life. And it lived up to my absurd expectations. Good lord I missed Michael Harris and Daniel Anderson's collaboration. Idiot Pilot is life Favorite track: Mammoth.

Bombs Away 04:23
Without any warning at all Unseen by the morning light It comes from all sides The passing of tides Indeed it's a lovers quarrel Look out down below (x6) Look out, look out, look out down below It comes with the passing of time Reunion of red and gold Unhinged from the wire We'll never retire The damage will soon unfold (repeat chorus) It's a never ending slope It's the ending of your rope Rope

The Pushover 04:10
Got a problem giving people what they want Can't seem to tell them no anymore And as crazy as it sounds Happiness abounds when I'm told Where to sit How to eat Where to live When to sleep How to walk When to talk Somebody please tell me Yea I know, pathetic as it is I can't really help being like this Mostly its hazy, there's a reason I should quit Its medically unfit, or so I'm told When to speak How to walk What to eat Where to sleep How to resist the urgent response Where to kiss When I can watch But you kissed my wounds And sealed my doom I'm your pushover Push me over Ask for things that you don't need Your wish is my command and disease Let me step out of your way I would kill myself today If it meant you'd be okay Push me over I'm your pushover

Mammoth 04:18
Play me a song that's accompanied by Powerful yet delicate Stabs at your insides Save for the weakness, I'm more then alive I'm used to all that yellowness that's leaking from your spine Before you decide where to lie Can't you tell how impressed I am? It's not going to kill you to try and repent For your sins Maybe the point is I'm totally fine Now that you're not relevant The elephant can die Put it to rest just as soon as you like Get used to no one helping you You're perfectly unkind (repeat chorus) But it's not worth troubling It's not worth troubling (x2) It's not worth.... I confess everything (repeat chorus) But it's not worth troubling yourself
4.
Only so Much 03:27
Well there's only so much I can take half of the day And it's harder for some to admit Their irrational ways But... I don't wanna see you I don't wanna have to deny myself of all the things I need I don't wanna see you I dont wanna have to insist upon the things that I can't change Oh, I can't change Well it's one hell of a push and a pull breathing for you Cuz you took all the space that was left Inside of this room But... I don't wanna see you I don't wanna have to deny myself of all the things I need I don't wanna be here I don't wanna have to insist upon the things that I can't change Oh, I can't change Well there's only so much I can take half of the day And it's harder for me to admit my irrational ways But... (repeat second chorus)
5.
Sideways 03:58
Excuse the stench of my own Pitiful excuse for a mood It's second nature to be critical Affection removed Well I guess I could wait For a chance to escape But you're so sideways Playing mind games Consider this a lasting funeral The flowers for you Surround yourself with something beautiful And they will approve Well I guess I can wait For a chance to escape But you're so sideways Playing mind games You're so sideways Desperate tirades It's a crime (x2) You're in your prime

Asylum 04:01
Drifting in and out of consciousness What is this about? What kind of highs can an optimist achieve? Massive padded walls It's all a blur again I'm scratchin' at them all It's all a blur and then C'mon and work with me I'm on this It could be worse Dishonesty won't serve you now There's a lock on the door and you probably should knock It's not going to get you in Even the sound of your voice when it drops Couldn't disturb me then Hasn't disturbed me since What's with the shit eating grin? (repeat chorus) Cuz I'm not getting out I'm begging you (x2) I'm begging you for asylum Massive padded walls It's all a blur again I'm scratchin' at them all It's all a blur and then... C'mon and work with me I'm on it It could be worse Dishonesty won't serve you now Cuz I'm not getting out...

Murderous 04:02
It's taking shape Meant for escape What's the strangest thing you've ever heard? Meet me here The table is laid It's a simple procedure Fantasize Those cameras eyes Have got me watching you Authorize and televise You're murderous It's so taboo Separate The feeling of hate There's no telling what's in your blood Took a drink Said all the words Turns out we're just creatures in the mud Fantasize Those cameras eyes Have got me watching you Authorize and televise You're murderous And so taboo
8.
Saboteur 04:41
Cease to raise a question Or a phrase Let the silence speak out your name It's so desperate and so lame You are saboteur Casual war, which side are you on? Depends on the day... Please don't wait There's no interest in your games What a rapid fall out of grace And it won't make a difference You are saboteur Casual war, which side are you on? Depends on the day... Depends.

Singin' the right notes Saying the wrong things Being the wisest man who wears a clowns face It's just another phase Is there another way? You've got a strong pose Hold it the right length Let everybody know you're not so commonplace It's just another phase C'mon you've got the strength So don't you break concentration It's widespread devastation Grab onto me real tight We'll go the longest way It's not your average ride unless somebody breaks It's just another phase Some days I'm wide awake Reclusive dynamite It blows up in your face Destructive appetite Want to assassinate It's just another phase Baby, you're JFK So don't you break concentration It's widespread devastation (It's all around) It's widespread devastation There's no turning away There's no second chance This is your final take It's widespread devastation Don't break concentration
10.
Stake your claim You have it all Cruel imitations see it through Patiently wait But all the while There's nothing to improve Is happiness derived when positives are trite? Goodness awaits for your embrace Come sit by its fire Can't we all agree? Does it have to be so difficult? Everyone is beautiful There's no shame in being small Part of the thing that makes you, you Don't hesitate to demonstrate the power of the truth (repeat chorus) With the words that you say (Pronounce, pronounce) With the things you portray (Pronounce, pronounce) From the voice you have known (Pronounce, pronounce) What's the point if you don't? (Pronounce, pronounce)

Aerospace 04:46
I used to be much more efficient I could retain things in my head No longer able Something's missing I can't remember why I was there I'm just an ordinary person I have opposing points of view What doesn't kill you Makes you wish it Human condition All you can do Into the burning sun I face Watching the world slip out in the waves Can't you see all of this one day Fades into nothingness Aerospace I used to be much less attentive Couldn't remember words that were said Now I am able I am focused Trying to make up time that we spent Into the burning sun I face Watching the world slip under the waves Can't you see all of this one day Fades into nothingness Aero Can't you see all of this one day Fades into nothingness Aerospace
12.
The feeling of love So often denied outright I'm searching for some Sort of respite From this boot to my throat Let me up Let me breathe In a rage filled storm (x2) Where we drift to sleep To sleep The feeling of angst Somewhere so deep is stored A catch and release But circling ankles With its teeth Underneath (repeat chorus)
