took the ride up to the well for the town I had to see the view of the green lighting the fire to the words in the way I could hear you breathe I could see you see we want to make up a list of sound the repetition we will not turn down we put our backs down to the tall grass turned gray it helps to breathe it helped to see we want to make up a list of sound the repetition we will not turn down from the gas station we stole the idea there’s nothing to know but it’s the open tract of land it’s the hardest part for you to understand I could run home in the night without signs or streets or light to the door where you stood still I could see the spaces in the woods we filled below us was time and it won’t go away I want to see and I want to breathe

Night's End 02:39
the window’s down your hair whipped my face adjust the sound those cigarettes will kill you someday not today to reach the river before dark the only thought was how fast you got in the night’s end running on the rocks I’d slip but not care somehow were soft there’s enough here no one has to worry the coast is clear lighting fires your eyes rolled back the day seems like it’s too much to pretend the night’s end nothing beyond the river bend passed out in fields the morning light will mend you the night’s end

Measure 4 02:16
those sailors came again tonight they measured everything in sight they took the last peace of my mind I’m fading back into the sea you won’t even hear me breathe it takes a step and then it dies every time you want a story I come off so drunk and boring we’ve wasted the idea of the sun you ought to catch the light and run you have to blame someone those sailors came again tonight they measured everything in sight they took the last peace of my mind every time you want a story I come off so drunk and boring and a promise you to tell the truth I promise you to tell the truth

about

As we were preparing to release The Green Fury, matt pond PA's third album, the idea came up to release a 7" beforehand. Thus the idea for the appropriately titled This Is Not The Green Fury was born.

Instead of taking the standard "single with a b-side" approach, This Is Not The Green Fury is actually a four song EP that barely fits onto a 33 RPM single!
