This Weight 03:00
It's hard to breathe when your mouth is covered It's hard to move when your hands are tied You're suffocating, your arms are bound You’re trying to run with your feet tied down to the ground We're building houses, we're building homes We're raising children and we're growing old Who's gonna stop just to worry about you We got our own shit to worry about too Don't weigh down on me Don't weigh down on me On me On me Don't weigh down on me Don't weigh down on me On me We're building houses, we're building homes We're raising children and we're growing old Who's gonna stop just to worry about you Honey, we’ve got our own shit to worry about too

Polly 03:09
Hey dreaming of a time when I was so young When my body ruled my brain, and my brain was like a theme-park of fun Where all the rides are free That ran on opportunity That hit us in the face like the sunshine of eternity And the people in this park they would laugh and they would play And I could make them hang around or I could make them go away But, I often sent them home so we could have all the rides to ourselves I like the ferris wheel, she like the dodgem cars Oh but it took some time to realise Some times to come to grips With the fact that she did not exist  And I was only playing with myself I was dreaming of a time where I could walk where big people walked I was dreaming of a time when people'd listen when I would talk But as we get to a place where my thoughts they don't seem as small as they once were I'm working out, I'm working out people are turning their heads When I wanna be heard Hey dreaming of a time when I was so young When my body ruled my brain, and my brain was like a theme-park of fun Where all the rides are free That ran on opportunity That hit us in the face like the sunshine of eternity But as we get to a place where my thoughts they don't seem as small as they once were I'm working out, I'm working out people are turning their heads When I want to be heard Polly

Heart beats when I think of you Heart beats when you're all I feel I will call your name I will call your name Out of luck and out of time I've spent my whole life slowly dying I will call your name I will call your name Kissing on your lounge room floor Holding hands and touching feet I will call your name I will call your name Together and then pulled apart When all you did was love me from the start I will call your name I will call your name

about

Scroll over song titles for lyrics.


The first official EP from Big Scary sets the tone for the rest of their career: they will not be easily placed into one genre.
The Mini EP features the urgent, grungy "This Weight"; the driving indie-rock of "Polly"; and the folk lullabies performed on ukulele of "Earle Street" and "Call Your Name".
