"It’s rare that a new artist comes along who genuinely defies easy description, but this is certainly the case with Stapleton... a bright new star in the ascendant."
- Louder Than War

"A supremely delicate and precise feel for the moment...like hearing Cat Power at her very best.“ - The AU Review

“She sounds like the devil convincing you to sell your soul."
– Tone Deaf

Track Name: Cut Away
Hello world you see right through me
Hello world you speak so fast
Out on the street the wind blew through me
As the leaves fell

Upon a tide there was a sailor
He washed up on a weathered shore
And once I thought I had a saviour
But tides they change
Track Name: 6ft Away
Well, I feel it coming down again
Time to lick this falling curtain
Got my demons in the back
Laugh and drive into the black
Another bar I’ll find a friend

Six feet away

My eyelids, they haven’t shut in days
Got a cat food mouth and a pickled brain
My gin is shot and my conscience hanged
But I’m, I’m moving on
I’m moving to
I’m moving on
I’m moving to

Six feet away

Sewn my back against the wall
I’m not moving mountains
I can barely move at all
So if you’ve found a sanctuary
Lock the gates
‘Cause I’m

Six feet away

I eat this stale bread
Chewing harder with each short breath
And while I while away the hours
I’m guessing that my hour is a while away

I chew this stale bread
Wash it down with a glass of regret
And time has wasted me
But I’m, I’m moving on
I’m moving to…
Track Name: What Was
The shops are all closed, you finished up late
The sky stretches over the knowing landscape
And the folks are in houses, their gardens well kept
Dinner smells sweeping grey pavements you tread
And you stick out your neck in the cold winter air
Not whole by yourself nor as half of a pair
And they won’t let you go these things of the past
Goading you on with your briefcase and cask

The stock’s running low, your faith even less
And they’re acting like strangers these ones you know best
And you passed the hat, yeah, you passed the blame
You passed them by when they called out your name
And now nobody is here and nobody cares
And nobody waits as you walk up the stairs
Your apartment is cold though your windows are closed
Looking out to the land where your sun always rose

You try to hold on, your hands always slide
And you try to make sense but your net’s cast too wide
From the depths rises up a recurrent discourse
You fit through the night and you’re waking up hoarse
And you’re dying to hear what they’re dying to say
But you’re better off deaf ‘cause you’re dying anyway
But until you arrive at the end of the line
Just keep pushing it down as it crawls up your spine

You’ve waited your turn, a worn grape in the sun
Long time ago burnt, long time ago done
And they’ve given you love but you can’t give it back
Burden burns coal on your one-minded track
And the days race ahead like the beats ‘neath your vest
As it fights like a knight and a beast in your chest
And they had you once, yeah, you could have confessed
Now it’s weighing you down like your stiff Sunday best

Oh what was it that you wanted to say?
Track Name: Bitter Seed
I don’t want to be here anymore
I don’t want to be here anymore
But if you read the sign on the door
You wouldn’t have waited around for more

I don’t want to be here anymore
A bitter seed in the eye of the storm
But if you read the sign on the door
You wouldn’t be crying for who you were
