lyrics

Verse 1
I wrote this groove to groove on your grave,
Write an angry letter to complain of stump tail,
Breeding many bees with your best friends hope, don't even share your honeycomb,
That's why you're unhinged.

Verse 2
What has love got to do with your heart?
A park full of Starks is the one I'd like to start

Why don't you wanna stay for this last song?
Fingers on the trigger, break sails, still surf on.

A 5-piece comprising laidback lads from the Top End, their songs are unapologetically groovy, and refreshingly cryptic.
