about

'The Ground The Sky' is the debut EP from Edmonton's Bombproof the Horses.

"...They certainly impress with an exemplary command of the essentials: catchy riffs, surefire melodies, engaging lyrics, sweet harmonies … in a nutshell, these are 4 fully realized songs by artists with an obvious knack for their craft... There’s a cohesive magic that’s already manifest in this brief but significant offering, and let’s hope The Ground The Sky is merely the beginning of a long and fruitful run for Bombproof The Horses." - Rokline.com, April 28, 2014

Track Name: Like I Do
Why d’you beat yourself up, l’il girl,
when you treat me so right?
weight on your shoulders
weight in your heart
It ain’t right

Just take a look at your hands, l’il girl
Take a look at the light
A shaky sunset
not a beach
(by the) deep blue sea

You don’t think (like I do!)
You don’t feel (like I do!)
and you don’t love you like I do

You don’t, you don’t, you don’t love (x4)
You don’t love you like I do.

Why d’you trust the fates, l’il girl?
Let them control your mind?
Taken over from
what you need most
just a little time
Track Name: Springtime in my Hometown
We were safe from the ugliness of this town
when the white blanket rested gently on the brown
Now, perhaps my nan’s necklace will be found

Sun glares off the fields covered undisturbed
little rocks scratch our cars and trees and curbs
and howling winds blowin’ in from the suburbs

Shake shake shake
Shake the cold away
Hope that it don't stay

Breathe breathe breathe
Breathe while you still can
Dirt waits where it began
It's springtime in my hometown

Winter's air leaves the skin feeling dry and raw
leave your boots on the heater by the door to thaw
short time til we’re back into winter’s maw

Potholes plague the streets, drives and avenues
deep ruts make cuts and leave a trail of ooze.
Hubcaps left behind, but I don't know whose.

Shake shake shake
Shake the cold away
Hope that it don't stay

Breathe breathe breathe
Breathe in sunlit rain
Comin’ to wash away the stains
It's springtime in my hometown
Track Name: Wide Angles
Tired and shaking
I’m done for today
Will I be ready for tomorrow?

Feeling capsized
feeling castaway
Will I find home tomorrow?

Through a different lens
it still don’t seem okay
Wide angles bend
but can’t make it go away
Make it go away

Insides are aching
Outside has given way
I’m not built for tomorrow

Fireworks bursting
Breaking through the grey
Signalling the birth of tomorrow

Through a different lens
it still don’t seem okay
Wide angles bend
but can’t make it go away
Make it go away

Restless and waiting
I’m done for today
How long until it’s tomorrow?
Track Name: Beyond Me
Breathless
Soundless
hopeful foot falls inside and it’s dark
Car walls are grey and dismal
cold carpet marked and abysmal
why you lie on it is always beyond me

Always beyond me (3x)
Like a shaking hand
in an open door

Peaking
Waking
stunned and drowsy see you creep outside
trees shrink in the moonlight on steel lines
your movements outside of real time
why you jumped right out is so far beyond me.

So far beyond me (3x)
Like a shaking hand
in an open door

Broken
heart and
broken arms hips chest and shin
But you got what you wanted
now you’re so far beyond me

The tracks, the train (so far beyond me)
My plans in vain (so far beyond me)
My plans in vain (so far beyond me)
Like a shaking hand, in an open door

The ground, the sky (so far beyond me)
Why you and I (so far beyond me)
Why you and I (so far beyond me)
Like a shaking hand, in an open door
