about

From Autoclave Records:

Originally pulled together for Greenbelt 2003 — so that Andrew would have something to sell that sounded like the solo, acoustic Calamateur experience — Son of Everyone is effectively a full length album, even though it's called an EP. It's also 9 songs long, even though it claims to be only 8-tracks long. Think of it as a double EP on one disc, or a single with a bucketload of great b-sides. The lead tracks are, I suppose, 'Son of Everyone' and 'Here Beside', alternate versions of songs taken from The Old Fox of '45. Those songs have a strong supporting cast of instrumentals and brand new tracks that won't be appearing anywhere else.

"...Ideal for late night listening, even at lunchtime. 4/5." - Logo Magazine

"...nothing short of brilliantly absorbing..." - Is This Music?

"...bloody good..." - The List

Track Name: Son Of Everyone
Sunday morning, I am mistaken
'Cause I am nothing, you are nothing
And you don't see my flight through the skylight
And I falling, not fallen

If you are the son of everyone
Then we are the lost and lonely ones

You are there and you are not silent
So say something useful
Don't say that sequence is not important
And that you live and work in slow motion

If you are the son of everyone
Then we are the lost and lonely ones

I'm so tired of all your mistakes
And of you laughing in my face
So tired of this disgraceful world
I'm so tired of all my mistakes
And you living in my father's face
I am so tired of living in this world

If you are the son of everyone
Then we are the lost and lonely ones

If you are the son of everyone
Then we are the lost and lonely ones
Track Name: Here Beside (Cheap & Dirty Version)
I care a lot
I don't care at all
My heart is hot
My heart contains nothing at all

And I have been frozen
Since you said this is not a game
But you know my problem
Has always been the same

It's when the educated guess
Is all that's left, is all you've got
And I'm still terrified of pain
And of the cost, the risk of loss

I'm giving up
Never giving in
I'm backing out
I'm backing myself into a corner that I
Can never escape from
That I can never choose to leave
It's the only way that I'll grow
To move myself that I know
'Cause even after all this time
It's you and I and we're still on our own

With the educated guess
That's all that's left, is all you've got
And I'm still terrified of pain
And of the cost, the risk of loss
And when investigation ends
Will I be blameless in your eyes
Will you be here beside
Me tonight

Don't say you won't say a word when it's over
Say that you'll stay here beside
Don't say you won't say goodbye when it's over
Say that you'll stay here beside

And when investigation ends
Will I be blameless in your eyes
Will you be here beside
Me tonight
Here Beside
Me tonight
Track Name: Walk or Run
Yeah whether we walk or whether we run
Whether we split or whether we're one
I'll cut out my eyes
And swallow my pride

And if you were thinking of taking the easy way out
Yeah I don't think I'd hear you even if you were to shout
I'll cut out my eyes
And swallow my pride

And I won't be waiting here anymore
I'm dying a death, I'm lying at your door
Your door
Your door
Your door
Track Name: Talitha K
You've heard this story told before
You've heard this story told four times before
But here it is again for you
It's clear and simple, beautiful and true

I have a little girl I love
She fell asleep I thought it was more than it was
And I'd heard a story about a man
I thought if this is true then he is her last chance
I put her life in his hands

But I didn't know his name
I didn't know his name

I found him and I grabbed his hand
I found him and I hoped he'd understand
But just as we were about to go
He turned 'cause someone sick had touched his coat
And so I stood there waiting patiently
While he wasted time talking to this old lady
And then walked in a friend of mine he said
I'm sorry you might as well leave him behind
Not long ago your daughter died

But I didn't know his name
Still didn't know his name
I didn't know his name
Or why he followed me home

He said she's only sleeping
Soon everyone was leaving
And then all I heard him say
Was talitha k
Was talitha K
Was talitha K

Did I tell you his name
Did I tell you his name
Do you know his name
Or why he came
Track Name: Hold Your Stare (Acoustic Version)
And any time now your eyes
Will look this way or retreat to the side
And infiltration is impossible
As long as I'm guarded inside

And I can feel this
That I can beat this
That I will see through

You and I never done
And under covers as one
And someday soon I will hold your stare
As long as I am alive

And I can feel this
That I can be this
That I will see through you

And I can feel this
At last I can know this
That I will see you

See you through

Yeah anytime now your eyes
Will look this way or retreat to the side
Track Name: Disappointed
I am not afraid
I am not a murderer

I am not alone
I am not loaded

If you could see me now
If you could see me now
Would you be disappointed

If you could see me now
If you could see me now
Would you think your seed was wasted
Track Name: Shame
Put me to shame
Until I know your name again
Put me to sleep
If this is one promise you don't keep

Put me away
If what you've said is not what I say
Put me down
Get me out of here, away from elder son

Put me to rest
If this is just another graceless test
Put me to death
If with stretched arms, you only measured breadth

I am your
Elder son
I am your
Faithful one
