about

Against the Tide's second EP, featuring 7 songs and 6 bonus tracks/b-sides/alternate takes, exclusive to Bandcamp. This album was recorded over the course of the summer, in a variety of bedrooms and closets across Southern Ontario. The EP is about moving forward from people, places and situations, and presents the blend of genres that marks our music.

As always, feel free to support us by paying what you'd like for the album. All money made goes towards pressing CDs with our first 2 EPs on them.

We hope you enjoy this EP, and look forward to more stuff from Against the Tide!

Cheers,

Against the Tide

Track Name: Watching As the Leaves Fall
If I could only see you now, I don't know what I would say or how I would feel.
It has been so long, without you by my side to keep me on the path.
You know and I know and we both know that I still love you how could I not.
And you know and I know and we both know that there might still be a chance to save what is left.

And we're watching as the leaves fall, and you're looking at me now.
We're watching as the leaves fall and we know they're coming down.

How many times did I say we were through, how many times did I say that I wasn't coming back for you.
How many times did I walk out, how many times did you call me back to you, I was always there for you.
You know and I know and we both know that whatever happened I would crawl home back to you.
And you know and I know and we both know that now that it's over, I'm not looking back for you.

(Chorus)

How many times did I fuck up, well you know the biggest mistake was, and always will be, this.
If I could only see you now, I would know that nothing is worth the pain that it caused.

(Chorus x 2)

It's gone.
Track Name: Get Out
Just go just go just get away from here.
Just go just go just get away from here.
Get out of your old hometown,
and go, get away from here.

Stuck in a dead end job,
you're stuck in a dead end life.
Surrounded by familiar faces of a kind,
that you never want to see again.

(Chorus)

Run away and never look back,
you need to run away and never look back.
Forget about all those people who kept you down,
all of those long hard years.

(Chorus x 2)
Track Name: It's 11 PM and I Don't Know Who You Are
What do you find at the bottom of it?
Oh, what do you find at the bottom?
Yeah what keeps bubbling under the surface late at night?
What keeps you from finding the person you always wanted to be?

What do you find at the bottom of a glass?

Oh, what keeps you awake at night?
Yeah, what keeps you awake at night,
and keeps you digging down until
you don't know who you are anymore,
you'll drink until you'll blind.
How do you look in the mirror when you come home at night?
And who the fuck are you to tell me that I should be like you.
yeah who the fuck am I?

What do you find at the bottom of a glass?

Is it who you are?
Is it who you really are?
I don't who you are,
I don't know anymore.

Who do you find at the bottom of a glass?
Track Name: We're All Moving Forward (And We're Never Coming Back)
Don't let her see my hands are shaking,
don't let her see my hands are dry.
When it comes to this, you gotta ask yourself:
where have we come from, where have we gone?

It's been a long, hard and winding road but this is almost done,
we're all moving forward and we're never coming back.

(chorus)

Farewell and adieu to my good friends,
we're all moving forward and we're never coming back.

(chorus x2)
Track Name: ...And Now For Something Completely Different
My life, is fading.
My life, is gone.

And you know and I know and we both know that there might still be a chance to save what is left.

And we're watching as the leaves fall, and you're looking at me now.
We're watching as the leaves fall and we know they're coming down.
