about

"Many, many years ago - okay, thirteen years ago - I wrote a poem, and then in 2006 after I'd started playing guitar and writing songs, I decided to set this poem to music. To be honest I can't remember what came first, music that matched words or words that inspired music. But the result was the same - the two halves came together, and "Fall on Death" was born. This is definitely one of my favourite songs on the album, all upbeat and happy rock. I still remember when I first heard the instrumental version - it blew my mind. As for the finished version, well my mum says it's her favourite, so that's gotta be a good endorsement!"

- Trisha

"If memory serves correctly, "Fall on Death" was the last song recorded for the album, and ended up being one of the trickiest songs to complete. Upon receiving the demo, it seemed to lend itself perfectly to the classic soft/loud dynamic and took very little time to record the instrumental. What did take a good deal of time was settling on the proper mix for it. I spent more time going through different mixes for "Fall on Death" than probably all the other songs on the record combined. After going through dozens of different mixes, I finally settled on the one I felt was closest to what worked best for the song, but there was still something that wasn't quite right. I sent it off to be mastered with the others and upon receiving the finished masters, I was thoroughly pleased with all but one - this one. I sent the mastering people at Disc Makers an email expressing my concern over it, how I felt, and what I wished to accomplish with the song. They agreed and understood, took it back and worked on it again for several days, ultimately yielding the master we have today - and a version of the song I feel is fully realized. Like Trisha, friends and family have also told me it's among their favorite tracks on the record, proving that all that extra effort to get it just right was totally worth it."

lyrics

Lyrics:

I found you, floating over ways
I found you, dreams of better days
I saw you, warmth among the days
I never knew you to waste a day

Hello, what’s your name?
You look like a James
Hello, what’s your name?
You look like a game

I made you, from bricks and clay
I made you, from strands of hay
I made you face your grey doomsday
I made you fall on death anyway

Hello, what’s your name?
You look like a James to me
Hi, what’s your name, boy?
You look like an Eric

Answer me!
Don’t be afraid!
Answer me!

I made you, from bricks and clay
I made you, from strands of hay
I made you face your grey doomsday
I made you fall on death anyway

Hello, what’s your name?
You look like a James
Hello, what’s your name?
You look like a game
