about

fault line represents the combined creative output of some of the finest musicians in the genre. First aired on tour in the UK in April, the four tracks of With You, Shimmer, Arrowhead and Light On Light represent a nod to the past but with a distinctly forward looking orientation. Intense, complex layered vocals with intricate and driving guitars and bass all set to the drum work of Simon Rippin, this EP sets out OBB's stall for the future.

Track Name: With You
Twisting Screaming on her back again
Punching the world pulling him
A feeling like she's never been
Let the world walk away, let the world walk away

Twisting on the floor like never before
Pushed too far took some more
Twisting on the floor like never before
She pushed too far and broke these chains

and while you're walking away
while you're walking away I am with you

Twisting Screaming on her back again
Punching the world pulling him
A feeling like she's never been
Let the world walk away and meritocracy begin

I am with you
I am with you

Twisting on the floor like never before
T-T Twisting on the floor like never before
T-T Twisting on the floor like never before
she pushed too far and broke the chain

and while you're walking away
while you're walking away I am with you

Twisting on the floor

while you're walking away (I am with you)
while you're walking away I am with you

Twisting on the floor
Twisting on the floor
Twisting on the floor
Twisting on the floor
Twisting on the floor (I am with you)
(Twisting on the floor) I am with you

while you're walking away
while you're walking away I am with you
Twisting on the floor....
Twisting on the floor: I am with you!
Track Name: Shimmer
I, I, I, I, I see a withered tree branched out mocking me
Arthritic limbs pronounced into the air
Below the mantle, cracked, lined and broken
A sallow face misshapen above repair

Shimmer, black shimmer...

I, I, I, I, I see a token world inside of me
It shattered hard as it hit the ground
I know! I, I see!

I, I, I, I, I feel a simple peace wrought from a failed belief
Synaptic pathways born a tense decor
Behind the curtain unsure uncertain
A fallow grin through the lens despair

Shimmer, black shimmer...

I, I, I, I, I see a token world inside of me
It shattered hard as it hit the ground
I know! I feel!

I, I, I feel open to truth, if in a dream, an empty space
Open to truth, if in a dream, for just one day!

(Please come back)
(Please come back)
Please come back! (Please come back)

Tears conspire again! (Please come back)
Tears conspire again! (Please come back)
Tears conspire again! (Please come back)
Tears conspire again! (Please come back)
Track Name: Arrowhead
Welcome a new life, Welcome a new time
Welcome to all your plans 'til you pass away
Now step into line
Gotta re-wire all you've prized
Kick it to the floor, treat an open sore
Won't need it anymore

Come walk with Arrowhead
Walk with Arrowhead

Broken in two minds
Drowning in the sunshine
Keeps twisting you inside-out
A war's a war, a war's a war
That's how they prey
Then it follows you're torn and stretched until you're the same
Relinquishing self and clan

Come walk with Arrowhead
Please welcome Arrowhead

Here in this rust bucket silo
For sixteen years or so it seems
Everyone outside's corrupted
That's how they seed that's how they breed
To be made aware of nothing yet servitude at your expense
Push that back door open, crawl away

Crawl away to Arrowhead

You talk about this time
You talk about all the times and then all the plans
you say, this time, I'll run away and crawl away

To Arrowhead

Come walk with Arrowhead
Track Name: Light On Light
Open the box to your trinkets joys and fears
Always the carousel rounds to the music spinning in your ears

We're all falling down, (keep the light on, so keep the light on light)
We're all falling down, (keep the light on, so keep the light on light)

and how can this be real (keep the light on light)
Over, over inside of me (keep the light on)

We're all falling down, (keep the light on, so keep the light on light)
We're all falling down, (keep the light on, so keep the light on light)

and how can this be real (keep the light on light)
Over, over inside of me (keep the light on)

Light on Light, Light on Light, Light on Light
Keep the light on

Light on Light, Light on Light, Light on Light
Keep the light on

And how can this be real, over, over in spite of me
Enjoy every moment!
Empower every moment!
Devour every moment!

Keep a light on

Light on Light, Light on Light, Light on Light
Keep the light on

Light on Light, Light on Light, Light on Light
Keep the light on

Hey!

Open the box to your trinkets joys and fears
Always the carousel rounds to the music spinning in your ears

We're all falling down!
We're all falling down!
We're all falling down, (keep the light on, so keep the light on light)
We're all falling down, (keep the light on, so keep the light on light)
