Kameron Seger The lyrics are très parfait, vocals are right where they should be and instrumentation sounds original and very catchy. Wish The Great Dismal would release something else! Favorite track: Running with Scissors.

cmscalora It was hard for me to choose a favorite. I can't listen to one song off of this EP without needing to listen to the entire thing. It's amazing. I cannot wait to hear more! Favorite track: Vultures.

Agent K(ahunasan) Doesn't matter who sings lead or background on each track; the male and female vocals are a perfect match.
Nice Electric Guitar interludes between verses and choruses.
Very compelling.....Can't wait for a full length.....! Favorite track: Where Were You?.

Track Name: Vultures
You can't be honest with yourself
How do you expect to be honest with anyone else?
So let's start a fight and call it heart
Or talk some shit and call it art
I'll die before I ever be
A part of your fucking scene
I wouldn't waste a single breath
Explaining why I couldn't care less
About what you think

All the vultures in Virginia have been circling my house these past few weeks
And I wish that I could see ya
But if I step outside they'll surely take me and
Rip me apart, piece by piece
And it won't be hard, 'cause I'm already falling apart at the seams
Track Name: High Tide Low Tide
What would you know
I found that old road
Leading to your home
But my head is clear since you left last year
And I've learned to turn my back on what I used to know
What would you know
I just don't feel that glow like I used to
This is coming to a close

And I've come to find
That my piece of mind
Came when you were out of sight out of my life
And I've come to find
That the sun still shines
When you are out of sight out of my mind

I wish my moods were like the ocean tides
Where the highs would come around from time to time
But she is the moon when she enters the room
And pulls me closer to her and further away from you
Track Name: Running with Scissors
Drive around South Chesapeake
Chain smoke until our lungs bleed
Anything that we can do to make this feel like something new
'Cause I'm no savior but I have to save her

The scissors on your skin won't get you through this
You want to be free but can you afford the price its costing
Where did I go wrong in helping you get along

If the world were a perfect place hearts wouldn't break
If the world were a perfect place I could write a song to make you stay
I'd make you stay
I'd make you stay
Track Name: Where Were You?
Where were you when I needed you most?
Broken down on the side of the road
Stranded so far away from home
Wishing you would have picked up your phone
When you finally answered you said
"Sorry kid I love you but I just can't"
Guess I should have been used to that by then
Guess I should have been used to that by then

It took you twenty-two years to set an example
The least you could have done was make it a good one
Twenty-two years to set an example
The least you could have done
The least you could have done

Where were you when I needed you most?
Shattered windows in a broken home
Left your family completely alone
Running away is all that you know
When I finally caught up you said
"Sorry kid I love you but I just can't"
Guess I should have been used to that by then
Guess I should have been used to that by then

Where were you? Where were you?
