about

The Great Perhaps' debut EP is a four track foreshadow. Genres apart, Payton and Mindrum confronted their musical and personal pasts to develop the technical, reverberating, and climactic sound of (Pr)Elude. This melodic introspection asks listeners to reminisce with Payton's lyrics about an ever-present past, the illusion of eluding it, and on looking towards a brighter future. The Great Perhaps have only just embarked on their journey and invite you along. This is the introduction, the prologue, the prelude. Are you intrigued? Are you curious? Will you keep listening? Perhaps.

Track Name: Finding the Found
It’s worrying these things I’ve become
And finding the strength to overcome

The outlaw is thuggish reminisce
This trespass is on a past remorse

Holding onto water is like
Holding onto her
Without sense enough to stop I find,
My hands are cupped for more

Kindly step away from who you were
Move quickly, the future holds so much more

Holding onto water is like
Holding onto her
Without sense enough to stop I find,
My hands are cupped for more

Hold onto light
This course you hold will need to end tonight
There is always time
There is always time to change the path you’re on

Holding onto water is like
Holding onto her
Without sense enough to stop I find,
My hands are cupped for more
Track Name: Rearrange My Bones
I take in the ceiling and count down the risks
hear a loud knock and a heart empty kiss
above our bodies followed by empty doll eyes
how mine tear with screaming floorboards

Rearrange my bones
Break apart this stone
Make this heart your home
And rearrange my bones

Pulse beats pulse, blood thicker than my own
freezing in veins, gelid flashes of shadows
darker in black cast from light better not left on
now tell me, where is the switch
where is the switch

Rearrange my bones
Break apart this stone
Make this heart your home
And rearrange my bones
Track Name: Falling Chinup Deep
I’ve been here before
The walk you took with me
And my lying lips
So sweet, furnishing retreat

From all the blank stares
At a wall and back quietly
Whisper, hear my name
My sins and pray for belief

My sins and pray for belief
My sin and pray

By a river flowing blue,
The skies we’re watching underneath
All the words you thought I slipped
On the ice and fell chinup deep

These cuts that may not heal
The words from love-lost saving grace
Please, God, try and feel
My sin and pray for belief

My sin and pray for belief
My sin and pray for belief

From my life you left
An impression of your pintucked wings
Around my blackened hands
To hold consuming all my dreams

Of those pearly gates
To the darkest parts of me for free
Please, God, try and feel
My sin and pray for belief

My sin and pray for belief
My sin and pray for belief

Why won’t I get on my knees
Why won’t I pray for belief
Pray for belief…

From my life you left
An impression of your pintucked wings
Track Name: Nowhere Left To Go
No need to apologize
For walking out of this place
Just left a hairline fracture
Along the skies of my face

You've got Semper Fi reasons
For cleaning up your mess
Left me with six months to think about
Why I should be taking you back

Please don't go higher
There ain't nowhere to go
Please don't go higher
We're running out of road

Dry creek indecision
Marks the canyon between
Dry creek indecision
Keeps you from leaving again

Please don't go higher
There ain't nowhere to go
Please don't go higher
We're running out of road
