Wayfarer​/​The Decay Split LP

  • The Decay have always been one of my favourite local bands and full of awesome dudes. We had a bunch of tracks, they had some too. We both wanted to release them somehow but were broke and lazy. We figured if we both worked together it might actually get done out of fear of letting the other band down.

    So here it is. Their half is incredible and I couldn't be more proud of ours. Be sure to check out the full free download here:

Track Name: Collide
They would sit around in smoke and gaze
Into the low sky line in hopes the other fades
And they would never touch
No, they could barely breathe

She would close her eyes as he looked away
They were the dust upon old lovers things
Worn like a crown
Heavy as that empty page

Trying to get lost inside old memories
Instead losing touch losing time, losing all they swore they
Thought they’d be
Lose one another so easily
Track Name: And Pass Away
When we finally got past hope
When we found just what we craved most
A place where all the poets torched each other’s work
They swore that you were far too young
Far too young to be this made up
With the serpents tongue and the sophist’s gentle air


But as you move along only look back to watch it burn and then they’ll see
That maybe this is what we’re made of
Shards of broken glass and gasoline
And as you move along only step back to bask in all you used to be
Closed eyes on warning signs, they liked to keep you tongue-in-cheek

As they pass away

They told me not to look away
They told me not to hope they’d stay
They told me all these means were ends
Asked what made me think I was time well spent
Move on just move on we’ll move on until we
Pass away in sheets and lace
Tired minds that never dream

This is the way they feel and the way we felt
Track Name: Daughter of Time
Got caught, closed eyes again
Worst part is you’d never believe me
Got soft, but they kept that grin
The kind that shows we’re all too easy
Taped a note to your upstairs window
A hard reminder, it read like her skin felt
This was never home, you were never home

We once fought so hard
It shaped our faces we brandish scars they showed off beauty marks
They saw the devil in our hearts, we watched theirs bend and fall apart
Trying to earn its weight in gold, try to age with grace and not get old

Got caught, making eyes again
How do I show you’re worth more than you think
Got soft, I watched you fall right in
Though I knew you were barely breathing
Losing track of all this measurable time
And then it’s 4 am we’ve fallen out of line
We were the flicker our matches ignite

We weren’t always this broken up
We used to laugh away the days we used to bank on the fact that
If you burned up I’d cough up smoke
If you lost the nerve I’d start to choke
We’re losing grip, we’ve stripped these gears
I guess it all seems fit we watch our teeth scrape stone together
Track Name: 07.27.10
I still walk that way, through the courtyard where I spent my 20th birthday
You had that poor man’s bottle of champagne
Safety in architecture, the street lamps traced a familiar picture
We were kids wrapped up in our own world
We still feel left for dead in the city where we first met
I worked it off
Back there you never had a chance
Through clenched teeth they’ll say
You never should have left that way
It’s how you know these now are your days

Dark blurs in hard light
As clumsy feet sway off time

It once looked the same, an empty page in shades of grey
“It makes it easy,” you used to say,
“When you never have to make out shape”
We’ll close our eyes, put pen to lines and trace out paths for the rest of our lives
And we’ll hope we drew it out right

Because when it’s going black and my eyes burn red from the coughed up smoke of those done-up kids
We might start walking home with them
We might start sleeping alone again
So we’ll show our eyes, hands in plain sight
Leaves notes on walls
We know they’ll never find
To be sure we make it out all right
To be sure we’re never

Dark blurs in hard light
As clumsy feet sway off time
When they asked you if you’d come inside
Not sure just what they hoped to find
Just look away, hands at your side
It makes it easier
To pretend we’re all right

Yearn for the sunlight
Hope so bad this time
You might care to see it light up their eyes
To see your dark blur in the hard light
Track Name: The Fever of Those Years
The light will find those who never stop looking, that’s what the tape sang
It’s what you meant on that day with your hair in your face when you pulled on my sleeve, when you had me stay
You were all her I was the snake but it was me who was fed that day
You sat crossed legs, showed how a look could pierce veins
We walked home our own way, with our blood on my face, a little colour to a dark shade of grey

I guess that we’ve all had those years
Where cold cuts to the bone, heat brings fevers and tears
Turn those blue eyes and off whites into handshakes and half smiles
So we can step outside to both bathe in soft light
We’ll both break from that smile
We’ll both give under the weight of the thought of losing someone so young
Before she’s old enough to even fall in love
To even realize she’s changed the lives of everyone she’s touched

As we lean on the hopes of a child
We’ve accepted the failure
Took our blood over wine
With a temperament, not so concerned with sin
It was the fever of those years that left us slack-jawed again
Take sides then we all fall this time
As life pours like smoke from a child’s eyes
Some hope, some pray, we all think twice
About what it means to live by ones side
