Hey Somebody 03:46
You stroll by like you just don't care They are talking about you everywhere You catch an eye and you glean a voice You're a paranoia train So all aboard You're a paranoid train You kiss goodbye every love you've known You run and hide form every love that's shown Best friends with your phone and your cigarette You're too good for them now You're too good for them now Hey, hey, somebody give me space Hey, hey, somebody put a, Put a name to the face of the voice inside my head I feel it coming, I feel it coming I feel it welling in my heart and every part of my brain I feel it pushing to the wall and every inch of my being You stroll by like you just don't care They are talking about you everywhere You catch an eye and you glean a voice You're a paranoia train, so all aboard You're a paranoid train Hey, hey, somebody give me space Hey, hey, somebody put a, Put a name to the face of the voice inside my head I feel it coming, I feel it coming I feel it welling in my heart and every part of my brain I feel it pushing to the wall and every inch of my being

If there's no time for lullabies, then you're no friend of mine If there's no time for lullabies, then you're no friend of mine He's just pleased to meet you Instead of standing in my crawl If there's no time for telling lies, then you're falling behind If there's no time for telling lies, then you're falling behind Humming on my way to say goodbye to all the things I've ever had to think about Screaming all the way to hell is where you go When all you know is how much you'll be missing out You better find time to tell the world Instead of fading away He's just pleased to meet you Instead of standing in my head Humming on my way to say goodbye to all the things I've ever had to think about Screaming all the way to hell is where you go When all you know is how much you'll be missing out

Out to the stars, they call me so quietly You're out in the trees in the light of the street lamp Whisper my name from the roofs and the fence tops A creature will pass and the calm of the night comes alive I feel that you're near with a hand to your ear I'm lost and alone and trying to find my way back home

Falling Away 04:00
They say it's good for the heart They say it's good for the mind They say the people we love, we leave behind They say it's torture and pain  They say it's freedom again Do we know it now? They say it's people you know They say it's fractions and wholes They say it's pushing a stone up a hill to let it roll They say it's pleasure and pain They say it's freedom again, Do we know now? It's the light of the morning The fall of the rain A season that's dawning A consciousness forming An ocean of disappointment Then falling, baby we're falling, falling away

about

Scroll over song titles for lyrics.

Inspired and recorded during a wave of apocalyptic weather sweeping Australia late 2009, Big Scary’s EP ‘At The Mercy of The Elements’ easily navigates itself between tracks with fierce drums, screaming guitars and Zepplin-esque vocals on ‘Hey Somebody’, to the stripped back, piano driven ballads, such as ‘Falling Away’.
Big Scary's expansive and varied catalogue of work take you on emotional journeys ranging from the bravado-drenched to the heartbroken and exposed.
