    We're finally back with a new one called "Rabbit Holes" - sorry we took so long! This track has some tricky fingerpicking in it, made even harder by using a guitar with a wicked straight neck. Best thing to do was to record it live to get the timing right, and then we added a couple layers in after the fact. There are a lot of wildlife references in this one though I didn't start writing it with that plan in mind. That's just where the song wanted to go, and I'm actually pretty glad that it did. Hope you like it! Download and share it to your heart's content.

    Rabbit Holes

    Though I try
    To hold my horses
    I know my course is leading
    Down wicked roads
    And rabbit holes
    Past omens I'm misreading

    Oh I'm licking my wounds
    And I'm singing the tunes I believe in
    Afloat on the sea
    With the sharks underneath
    They've been feeding

    I know why
    Eternal forces
    Cloak their porous beating
    They're leaving room
    For hope and gloom
    And love that's worth perceiving

    Oh I'm licking my wounds
    And I'm singing the tunes I believe in
    Cut a shallow ravine
    With a bridge in between
    For retreating

    Move me, soothe me, I'm falling down time and again
    Hold me, show me, the words I don't have to defend
    Shakedown, break down, the rules we were meant to ignore
    Save me, lately, there’s too many snakes at the door

    Crows will fly
    At midnight tolling
    Over old men sleeping
    They need their roads
    For what they grow
    While burdens haunt their dreaming

    Oh I'm licking my wounds
    And I'm singing the tunes I believe in
    Oh what can I say
    At the end of the day
    I'm still breathing

    I’m asking myself now
    Why the hell I'm not unleashing
    The hounds that were raised
    In a breakable cage
    That I weakened
    So faint but they're there
    The melodies bear repeating
    Oh what can I say
    At the end of the day
    I'm still breathing

    Chorus
    Save me, baby, not biting my tongue anymore
