about

"Sharks Took The Rest are a many splendored melodic thing and this is a sweetly delicate pop record with a bruised but mighty heart."

The Quietus


Welcome to our debut LP. We sat in scruffy rooms together to write whatever songs came out of us on any given day, one after the other. Then we had a tidy. We played the songs out loud in public and people clapped and danced and sang. This made us glad. Then we went to a slightly less scruffy room and pressed ‘record’. And now? Well, now it’s here and we hope that you like it and find your own heart beat in some of it. If you do, please pass it on. To all the people who have helped to make this record we can’t thank you enough.

Love, Sharks Took The Rest x

Track Name: rename the planets
I’d love your moon to stay
I’d love your stars to death

And on a cloudy night
I’ll flap my arms so hard
I’ll float to reach such height
I’d love your stars to death

I’m starting a new group
A star-gazing fellowship
We’ll bring our telescopes
We’ll rename all the planets after you

We'll choose names only we can spell
the zodiac will have to go
the belt of heaven fits you well
I'll love your stars to death

I’m starting a new group
A star-gazing fellowship
We’ll bring our telescopes
We’ll rename all the planets after you

May your nova never lose any light
May my eyes never lose sight
May your nova never lose any light
May my eyes never lose sight

We’ll bring our telescopes
We’ll rename all the planets after you
Track Name: too late for logic
We need some time to talk about it
I know it’s bad you know it’s bad
Cos we are hunched can’t talk about it
It’s in our spines

The hour is late - it’s too late for logic
The hour is late -we’re well past panic
We’ve caught it too late - our epidemic

Our breathing burns the carpet’s bending
Beneath our backs – there’s no going back
And we are soul to soul with empty
And we are dry

The love that we make’s too full of our sorrow
The love that we take is only ever borrowed
We’ve called it too late our epidemic

I don’t know what I’ll miss till all your heat has stopped
Warming me up and then I will see if I turn cold

The sky will still be when you leave me
It will not fall - though I may fall
Our major veins will keep on pumping
Till they are dry

And when we both wake it will be tomorrow
The love that we made was only ever borrowed
We’ve called it too late it’s academic
Track Name: snails
There are snails on the step, so I have to be careful
And the rats in the shed took the bait, so I have to be hopeful
The sheet billows,
Here comes the sun and I am glad cos in the winter sadness has won, sadness has won

Biting till we bleed, bleeding with radios
Daylight does it’s deed, melting our heavy snows
Bind us in our need, bind us at the seams,
Love us till our bones are airborne the sunbeams

There are ants in the bin, they are creeping and crawling,
At least the rats in the shed are dead
Amongst the pillows skies are of blue
And I am glad cos in the clearing I’m only for you, I’m only for you

Biting till we bleed, bleeding with radios
Daylight does it’s deed, melting our heavy snows
Bind us in our need, bind us at the seams,
Love us till our bones are airborne the sunbeams

Do you ever build a den, like a little house and then,
Let your little light shine on, cos time’ll eat ya good and gone

Biting till we bleed, bleeding with radios
Daylight does it’s deed, melting our heavy snows

Bind us in our need, bind us at the seams,
Love us till our bones are airborne the sunbeams
Track Name: gulliver
Send out the helicopters
And see if you can see the bit of me that he threw overboard
Said he’d thrown it out but I have looked everywhere,
And I like the way it sounds when you send out the helicopters

I need a strong one now,
You need to grow on me

Gulliver’s getting big inside my head
Liliput’s laying low inside your bed
Track Name: eiderdown
He was the one that got away
Did not go home till very late
He clicked his heels in time with everyone's tune
Imagine eiderdown and pearl
Fleet footed charms bewitching each and every lovely girl

His animal knew how to love
His raillery second to none
He made you feel like you were all he could see
And in the land of mirrored glass
He echoes on inside the feet of every lad and lass

Oh but the mirror balls are stalled and all the halls have fallen down, down, down
The limbs that moved like they were wings are crippling and dangling down, down, down

Whisper a lie to bring a smile
A soft deceit, gentle beguile
Like lemonade is magic water and such ?
Oh rage against the dying light
The one that burns in you like you are still a bird in flight

Oh but the mirror balls are stalled and all the halls have fallen down, down, down
The wings that moved like they were wings are crippling and dangling down, down, down

Oh but the mirror balls are stalled and all the halls have fallen down, down, down
The limbs that moved like they were wings are crippling and dangling down, down, down
Track Name: ancestors
I break bread without you,
I am without cause.
All the spring my middle eye and me,
We sit and see through walls.

And I’m sure our Ancestors didn’t get it together just to
Spawn are love lorn and drifting endeavours gonn’a,
Find some reasons behind these darn rhymes,
Do some just to my bloodline.

I lose faith without you,
I am with-out name.
All the while my sense of self and me
We turn black in flame.

And I’m sure our fore-fathers didn’t cast their shadow just to
Lose our way and belief in the quid pro quo, and
Swimming hard in a sea of mediocrity,
Gainst a ruling fat cat majority.

I break bread without you,
I am with-out cause.
All the spring my middle eye and me,
We sit and see through walls.
Track Name: restaurant
And I’m driving in my car and I know that I can’t go very far ‘cos the dash says
so, I’m low.

Well I coulda told you that, I coulda shown you, that but if I opened up I might
swallow you whole.

There’s a restaurant I really want to go and I will sit and order so many dishes I
couldn’t possibly eat them all.

I’ve been a parasitic kleptomaniac when I’ve lacked but I’ve always kept my head
above the brim: the meniscus.

And I wanna go where nobody knows me.
To feel the liberty of sweet anonymity.

And my dress size shrinking down as my hunger’s up and the puddles seep onto
my feet, they get cold.

Well I coulda been a star, I coulda gone so far, but if I opened up they might
swallow me whole.

There’s a woman who I really hope to know, and I will sit and ask her so many
questions she couldn’t possibly know them all.

I’ve been a Clytemnestric femme fatale, behind my suitor’s backs I kept my heart
beneath the brim, the meniscus.

And I wanna go where nobody knows me.
To feel the liberty of sweet anonymity.

I wanna go where nobody knows me…
Track Name: go for blood
I go for blood, I go for broke, I think that I’ve seen everything
I mythologise my own demise and I forget to pray
I do this ‘cos I’m hurting and it’s easier than healing
Or at least the thought of healing, which hurts along the way
It hurts along the way

Way

Policemen come and go and all they every want to know are the barest bone, the barest bones

Well I told them all I could, I would've liked to have done more good

It matters how you fall,
It matters how you fall

Fall

Fall

Fall

The preacher's say confess and when we do make sure we're dressed in our Sunday best, he'll do the rest
Well I tried to wear that gown but it itches and I know deep down it rarely fits at all,
It barely fits at all
It matters how you fall

Some deride the darkening
Thinking that they'll never sink so low
But anyone, anyone, anyone can

Fall
Fall
Fall
Fall

I go for blood I go for broke, I think that I've seen everything
Track Name: sleeping conniptions
Come on then stars,
come on then stars.

Several severed old connections,
are never getting fixed,
They’re never getting fixed.

Several sleeping old conniptions
are never getting fits,
they’re never getting fits.

Come on the stars you showey little suckers,
perforate the dark I dare you.

And then I wonder why,
it is I lay down dry.
I am a pendulum of mood.

And then I wonder why,
it is I lay down dry.
I am a pendulum of mood.

Come on the stars you showey little suckers,
perforate the dark I dare you.

And then I wonder why,
it is we have to die
I am a pendulum of mood

And then I wonder why,
it is we have to die
I am a pendulum of mood

Come on the love, and bring me all your aching,
permeate the dark I dare you.

Come on the stars you showey little suckers,
perforate the dark I dare you.
Track Name: bring her back
You are seventeen minutes late,
I fall down with the worry waves.
I cannot reconcile the fear,
that one day I won’t have you here.

Bring her back, bring her home,
bring her safe and bring her close to me.
Otherwise my heart will stop,
and no one will come close you see.

Bring her back, bring her home,
bring her safe and bring her close to me.
Otherwise the world will stop,
and everything will cease to be.

I’m on my knees making deals with God,
and my bellies in tangled knots.
And the panic will not be still,
worry waves thunder on until you,

Bring her back, bring her home,
bring her safe and bring her close to me.
Otherwise my heart will stop,
and no one will come close you see.

Bring her back, bring her home,
bring her safe and bring her close to me.
Otherwise the world will stop,
and everything will cease to be.

You are twenty one minutes late.
Track Name: climbed as high as we could
Biting flies come massacre me
Sentimental though that might be

We're done here, gone nowhere I'm out

We're hiking high far above the sea
Botanically, you and me,
Fighting fires using our cold comedy
Temporary as that might be

We're done here, gone nowhere I'm out
She'll say I've no gumption but I'm out

We did our very best
We climbed as high as we could
I wore my summer dress
You wore you favourite shoes

If you're going to put a bomb under everything, girl you'd better be sure you're sure
And in the sadness of everything movement is the cure

Lure me back, lure me back, lure me back lure me back

(We're done here, gone nowhere) I'm out
She'll say I've no gumption but I'm out
We did our very best
We climbed as high as we could
I wore my summer dress
You wore you favourite shoes
Track Name: isobel
Baby Isobel,
grown inside a shell.

Made of loving angel bites,
gums of beauty bright.

In their proud eyes dear girl,
you are a shining pearl.

Tiny backbone in his hands,
toes like grains of sand.

Baby Isobel,
grounds for hearts to swell.

Boys will brighten at your side,
won’t walk from you but glide.

In her grown bones dear child,
the earth was harsh and wild.

Since you smiled and grabbed her hair,
the earth has been repaired.
