Scumbag On this EP Yellabird have decided to generally inject a little more muscle into their guitars, creating a heavier, more riff-driven style, still with the southern rock twang that adds character! I'd personally prefer to hear gruffer, edgier vocals as well, though. Favorite track: This Old War.

Track Name: This Old War
I'm a big, tall, walkin' strong man
My boots kick blood on your hands
I will cut you down

Lights flash, call to arms and
Young lads off to die
Send flowers to your dolls

This old war is all we are
Lift your spirits dying star
There's only darkness near and far
There's only daylight left to gods

Knives out, man the charge as
Fire reigns down on your head
Rifles to the wall

Sky blank, muddy water
Stomp your kind into the gutter
Winner takes it all

This old war is all we are
Lift your spirits dying star
There's only darkness near and far
There's only daylight left to gods
Track Name: Darlin, Sugar
Darlin, I've been lonely for you
You know, I know your game is true oh yes I do

Darlin, I've been lonely for you
I've been cooped up with the blues, oh like you

Oh, she walked away

Darlin, I want only for you
You know I'm shaking, broken, swimming over you

Darlin, I've been hungry for you
You know I know just what to do oh yes I do

Oh, she walked away
Because I am in the way

Darlin, been so lonely for you
You know I know you're gone for good, yes I do

Darlin, I want only for you
You better find your way home, it's true

Oh, she walked away
Because I am in the way
Track Name: Breather
Hello lover, bliss to see ya again
I know I walked out and I left some things unsaid, but

I will walk you home, always

Eyes were covered, weeks to clear my head
Desire for no other, miles to walk again

I will walk you home, always

I will walk you home always
Track Name: Johnny Law
On streets she walks the night
Block by block and light by light
Oooh I hear the words of her plight
Take my hand girl walk the line

I know something you don’t know
Brother John’s coming home

In heels she walks in wicked ways
Tattered clothes at home today
Oooh I’ve seen her stalkin in disgrace
Take my hand child stroll with me

I know something you don’t know
Daddy is coming home

Preachers daughter strollin home
Sweater worn down to the bone
Lord I know the hand it waits in sight
All that work ya done tonight

I know something you don’t know
Johnny Law’s coming home
Track Name: Little Brother
Little brother, holdin’ each other, on my radio
Wayward mother, console the others, on my stereo

It's cold outside, the sun so bright
Faces in the firelight

Distant lover, walk on forever, child dare not return
Holy father, hand out the honors, flock will not waver

It's cold outside, the sun so bright
Faces in the firelight

Corrupt power, hand strikes the hour, reckoning observed
Young disbeliever, cast out forever, night of fire adjourned

It's cold outside, the sun so bright
Lost souls in the firelight

Quick ride hard towards the night
Run child run from the light
They will conquer you
