Annabelle I was hoping you could give your sister a message from me Midway through the marathon I had a kind of epiphany There’s a certain kind of person who leaves a trail From the student bar to the holy grail Hey Annabelle, are you still looking for something to say? Hey Annabelle, don’t go home Annabelle if you see her, can you check if anybody is there? Please don’t make it too obvious because I definitely don’t care I’m not avoiding all of her hideaways I’m just trying not to go home that way Hey Annabelle, are you still looking for something to say? Hey Annabelle don’t go home Hey Annabelle, don’t believe her

You said one day you’d fly me to the moon These days you just make sad songs in your room It started out as a golden opportunity But moonwalking isn’t what it used to be Watching Interstellar didn’t make it better Reading Carl Sagan, looking kind of vacant You say you’re buying time but you’re always late I’m starting to think you don’t even want to go to space You’re saying your spacesuit feels too tight You’re saying suddenly you’re afraid of heights You’re acting up when we’re down at the station Worrying about the background radiation

You're a little bit older than me I'm a little bit older than her And she's so confident, confident And we look so alike I think in movies and soap scenes Your movements written in I find it difficult to ignore When I watch you begin Everyone was leaving, I had to listen to them say Maybe if you had a sister... I've been cheering you on from the sidelines You've been running around like a pro It's not the seventies anymore And you say it's a shame I don't want all of the power Just the strength that you took away And your apology's meaningless When you do it again and again and again Everyone was leaving, I had to listen to them say Maybe if you had a sister... I don't want to be here I have to run away Maybe if you had a sister You wouldn't be this way

Overbite 04:10
Last night I freaked out and I thought I was dying, I couldn’t catch my breath And both of us know how it feels to annoy ourselves to death Well I heard that you moved to the beach just to get away And I’d hate to think of you burning by the penny arcades Still I almost lose my mind whenever you walk by I can’t stop looking at your two front teeth, they sit so sweet On your bottom lip when you’re going to laugh at me Hey, don’t shut yourself away this time I think you’re cool, I like your overbite Each October your mum dressed you up as a vampire, chewing on your sleeve Now is it me, or do you always seem a little disappointed? It’s just your allergies And maybe you just weren’t designed to be mine, cause life comes at you hard But you don’t have to smile if you don’t want to darling, you’re perfect as you are Still I always lose my mind whenever you walk by I can’t stop looking at your two front teeth, they sit so sweet On your bottom lip when you’re going to laugh at me Hey, don’t shut yourself away this time I think you’re cool, I like your overbite

about

We can't believe it either. IT'S ONLY OUR SECOND ALBUM! Recorded over four weekends between late 2019 and late 2020, it's the sound of Fightmilk getting louder, quieter, stupider and more serious over the course of a ferocious forty-five minutes. Grab the album on your pick of vinyl or CD, or choose from our range of pretty sweet merch bundles, even if we do say so ourselves...
