I took a back seat to what I believed And I could go back there with you To walk on our frozen sea Do you want to go back there and walk on our frozen sea Do you want to remember what it was like on our frozen sea

Ranger 03:26
I tried to hit the rewind but it wouldn't I tried to kid you with luck but I couldn't I tried to change who I was but you knew it I tried to hide in disguise but I blew it Hey now people c'mon Please tell me what's going on With paper cuts on my heart I have no place to belong You tried to stay off your back but you couldn't You tried to do lot's of stuff that you shouldn't You tried to fake me your love but I knew it You tried to hide like I did but you blew it Hey now people c'mon Please tell me what's going on With paper cuts on my heart I have no place to belong I tried to stay in a line but I couldn't Tried to walk down the aisle but you wouldn't So I got a new girl like I coulda And she's loving me back like you shoulda Hey now people c'mon Please tell me what's going on With paper cuts on my heart I have a place to belong

Waiting for the train arriving stayed in for the stable lie down Lot's of things seem to build in against it Cater for the gay erotic cater for the carnal lot I can see them laughing Katie's no different They've stacked it against you Every day a chill arriving eighties porn is always trying Once or twice there's a break in traffic Saving for a golden nest your saving for a token plot I can see them laughing Katie's no different One day it'll work out They've stacked it against you Lazy Sunday, easy Monday There's lots of things to mention And lots of good intentions We're gonna have a whale of a time without you And every boat I sit in Is leaking through the ceiling We're gonna have a whale of a time without you

We'll I walked in the breeze and then fell asleep If I remember too we have the same dreams They were all in the dark I'll miss winter for sure This isn't California so it's time for summer c'mon This is summer c'mon We'll I walked in the park saw the same little dog And a rodeo clown with dyslexia Had I seen her before was it something I thought This isn't California so it's time for summer c'mon This is summer c'mon This is summer c'mon now This isn't California

Hey I brought you something that I made I know it's sharp now but it's safe If I'm so weird why are you still here Hey I thought there's something I should say I thought again and it's too late If I'm so weird why are you still here Why are you still here Came with your gun Said what you want Did what you want and gave everything back to the sun This is not what we want not what we said not what we stopped to beware You can't be over here But you can be over there If I'm so weird why are you still here Why are you still here

C'mon now give me a genre Everybody's got the same dishonour I can tell you whatever you feel Like I said before same like a rocket now Now gimme a genre gimme something gimme the safeest way to go I am feeling that there's something I can be great and all Honest song to go C'mon now give me a genre Don't hold back cause it's all I got on ya I kinda feel like something to do Well I kinda felt carsick when they gave me the news Now gimme a genre gimme something gimme the coolest name you know Doesn't matter if it aint something new we've been there before it's just something to do C'mon now give me a genre Everybody's got the same dishonour I can tell you whatever you feel Like I said before same like a rocket now Now gimme a genre gimme something gimme the safeest way to go I am feeling that there's something I can be great and all Honest song to go C'mon now give me a genre Don't hold back cause it's all I got on ya I kinda feel like something to do Well I kinda felt carsick when they gave me the news

Get Real Man 02:22
She said that it's like a teacup in a storm And everyone was there well everyone who won And I can't find no other the same way to begin This isn't what I want but this is what she said C'mon get real man I can fake it too just the same as you And I can fall in love with Sailor Jerry's too If this is what you built a fortress like a zoo You're so predicable but that's just what you do C'mon get real man She wanted to be nice but that's not what she's like Wanted something new but just as sure you'll do And I don't feel the need to watch you in a spin This isn't what I want so this is what I said C'mon get real man

Mystic Lamb 03:44
So hit me now with your theories You do not even scare me You're the one that I want and opinions you've got are the failed in Iraq the same with your bro man So hit me now with your theory You no longer scare me you've got something I want now hearing this song now Where now people come around It's damage done by a ten tonne truck but it's allright Cause it's full of my love The temptation to go there's the same but my adoration for the mystic lamb remains

Arctic Wren 02:59
I found an island like you said All we want is there Hey hey we'll call it home I felt like saying that all we wanted is gone If you want it more you'd better give in If you want it then start saving for real All we want is saving for him A painting for the setting surreal How sound is an island that's on fire When we watch from here It's fine I think you'll stay at home I got this feeling that you're not worth it at all If you want it more you'd better give in If you want it then start saving for real All we want is saving for him A painting for the setting surreal

Only on Friday is it gonna need to stop Same with the Soho I know they nearly rock I'd understand if it only meant a lot Jenny's got her eye but it's not enough to rock so c'mon Paint it right now and show me the way Paint it right now and show me the way that we go Put it in a rucksack tie a know Nothing you can say would even mean a lot I understand if it's everything you got But it's not all you got it's got all you got til you stop Paint it right now and show me the way Paint it right now and show me the way that we go Only on Friday is it gonna need to stop Same with the Soho I know they nearly rock I'd understand if it only meant a lot Jenny's got her eye but it's not enough to rock so c'mon Paint it right now and show me the way Paint it right now and show me the way Paint it right now and show me the way that we go

Can We Fly 04:05
If I missed out on success that's great it might've killed me Must I be a martyr I'm not really feeling the vibe From me to you One two there four five and a saying and you're in your life The same old tribe But I cannot be held before The simple truths The things we do The favours for The captains yore And everything we say to you To be the same as all we do right now Can we fly Can we fly Can we fly away I cannot be held before The simple truths The things we do The favours for The captains yore And everything we say to you To be the same as all we do right now Can we fly Can we fly away Can we fly Can we fly away

about

Our Frozen Sea is the somewhat overdue follow up to Pollen's 1998 album, the Glorious Couch Life. Here's some press quotes on the Glorious Couch Life;

"Overall, the feeling is of wondrous, almost child-like beauty: the Pixies, Pavement and Beck are all reference points but they are filtered through something that's fresh, inspiring - and maybe even new" Rolling Stone

“A debut that is smarter than that of your average Archers Of Loaf/Pavement inspired rock four piece” Juice Magazine
