    This EP is a collection of songs written during an Australian autumn. The colours of the falling leaves inspired me, like so many before me, to write about the circle of life. The word 'deciduous' is used to describe such trees, those that lose their leaves for the winter. Most Australian trees are evergreen, so those trees that inspired me were mostly imported from other places in the world. Australia does however have a handful of deciduous trees, like the one depicted on the cover, the Illawarra Flame Tree. It's native to the lower eastern coastline of the Australian continent, and loses its leaves before the dry season, sprouting crimson red bell shaped flowers in their place.

Track Name: Colours
Another day of foggy grey
I think I’ll go to hell because I never pray
But I don’t need god to feel guilty
Not that just comes naturally

If I loved you less
I could have walked away
But I loved you best
And so I had to stay

If every tree was evergreen
Would we befall such tragedy
The colours are changing every day
And the leaves just fall naturally

If I loved you less
I could have walked away
But I loved you best
And so I had to stay

If it weren’t for the winter we would never see
The colours of the falling leaves

Another day of foggy grey
I think I’ll go to hell because I never pray
But I don’t need god to feel guilty
Not that just comes naturally
Track Name: Money
I found a box of slides
It said Singapore 1979
And the bright eyes of children looked at me
From the first photograph
Those kids probly never had
A cent for their entire lives
But I wonder if they were happy

Cause money don't mean much to me alive anyway
Money don't mean nothing when you die

I found a leather case
It made me wish that I could be again
What youth afforded me
Unaffected uninhibited
But I must look to the future now
With this my heavy heart
I apologise for mistakes made in my past
I walked a long and lonely road and I'll walk alone again
But I promise that I will leave you
Something to remember

Cause money don't mean much to me alive anyway
Money don't mean nothing when you die

Some people ask
How much do ya make
In your job or whatever 
And is it comfortable
Some people ask
What do you create
And can I see it, feel it, hear it
And is it beautiful

Cause money don't mean much to me alive anyway
Money don't mean nothing when you die
Track Name: If We Stray
If We Stray – Wolf-Peter Arand

I know I would never be the man
That mum would like you to hold out your hand to
Coins in my pocket is all that is left
Of my days of wealth and glory and theft

All I ever did was just trying to get by
All I ever could was just living a lie
In a world of steel cold eyes and ties

And even if we stray one day we’ll be free x 3
From remorse and fear and sorrow and the demons we keep

It took 28 years for me to realise
What I could have been if I’d given it a try
All the joyful nights of sex and drugs and bars
We chased out all the thoughts that were never really ours

But all that time we never thought we’d fall
We never thought that we could lose it all
In the glimpse of a moment that takes its toll

And even if we stray one day we'll be free x 3
From remorse and fear and sorrow and the demons we keep

So forget what you once knew
And sing me the blues
Oh sing me the blues
Just show me the blues
Of your heart

And even if we stray one day we'll be free x 3
From remorse and fear and sorrow and the demons we keep
