First single from Big Dead's upcoming Former Self EP


Love your lonely self
Be happy to operate in this way
In the world, but not of the place
With some of the feeling left in your throat
And listening closer now for the pulse

Kill your former self 
I’m trying hard not to forget your face
Sing your love to your enemies
So that you might harbour your will to be
So that you might harbour your love for me

Love that fears itself
Parentheses framing the rising sun
In the end, with out emptiness
We offer ourselves onto love and death
We offer ourselves onto love and death

Rebuild your memories
You are not the sum of all the things you’ve done
Hold out your arms to them
They will clear this path of self destruction

Hate the way she looks at you
Can you do your best to get to fucking work on time?

Day after day again
And the funny things that people understand


released November 6, 2020
Mixed by Cody McWaters
Mastered by Jake Miller
Produced by Cam Bower
