An exploration of Eddplant's long-standing interest in pop punk music, picture unrelated was recorded in a suburban dining room in East London in three days in early August 2011.

The 17-minute EP features new versions of two Eddplant songs that were always intended to be performed by a full band, and two brand new tracks, "Never Know" and "You're Still Beautiful"

Track Name: Debut
Sometimes when i'm singing
you draw pictures on the walls
And I wonder then if how i feel
makes sense to you at all
I show tunes to you I've written
so you cover them in paint
They're better now, grey and smudged and
dirty like your face

I swung you to the city
and you wished that it was new
so you could write an art-house film
and i could make my debut
All I am asking of you now
is just to take me back in time
to the nights above the city
When you asked if you were mine

I'll drive with you all morning
down the streets and avenues
And then we'll sit among the gravestones
and I'll try to break the news
that I am happier with you
than I will ever be again
I'll give up before I'm done
and we can dance in the rain

I swung you to the city
and you wished that it was new
so you could write an art-house film
and i could make my debut
All I am asking of you now
is just to take me back in time
to the nights above the city
When you swore that you were mine

I would give everything I have
to tell you everything I want
But there's too much I have to tell you
and too much that I forgot
I wonder now if all this time with you
will linger in my mind
beyond the days we spend so vacantly
When this is left behind

I won't regret the taste of you
or how your head feels on my chest
I'll never spill a single secret
or a sin that you confessed
And I won't cry when this is over
When it's time to say goodbye
No I won't cry
I won't cry

I swung you to the city
and you wished that it was new
so you could write an art-house film
and i could make my debut
All I am asking of you now
is just to take me back in time
to the nights above the city
When you swore that you were mine
Track Name: Never Know
Take a picture of you,
Put it on my wall
And I can see you
Any time I want
I'll never ask,
That's not the way it works
I'll take the time
For you to see me first

Sit and watch
The autumn leaves break free
Theorise the way you feel for me
Build it up, and let it go
I'll never know, I'll never know

I have never tried to
Understand your mind
I'm too afraid of
Feelings I might find
I'm so afraid
I won't find what I want
That you don't feel
A thing for me at all

Sit and watch
The autumn leaves break free
Theorise the way you feel for me
Build it up, and let it go
I'll never know, I'll never know

There was a girl I loved,
I told her every day
And every time
She told me there's no way
And every time
She tore my heart in two
I never want
To feel that way with you

Sit and watch
The autumn leaves break free
Theorise the way you feel for me
Build it up, and let it go
I'll never know, I'll never know
Build it up, and let it go
I'll never know, I'll never know
Track Name: You're Still Beautiful
You're the kind of girl
for whom this is just
background music
You're the kind of girl
with two pairs of shoes
for each occasion
You're the kind of girl
who makes up dance routines
to all her favourite songs

Do you have a dance for this song yet?
Do you have a dance for this song yet?

Never wanna know
(wanna know)
the sort of problems you're causing
Never gonna know
just how you make people feel
(make people feel)
Never gonna stop
until you're top of the food chain

Have you had enough of this song yet?
Have you had enough of this song yet?

It's not hard to feel resentment
for you and your friends,
but it's hard to write it down
After all of the bitching
and breaking of hearts,
You're still beautiful
and we hate you for it

Getting over you,
so I've heard, is just as
hard as you get me
Which is to say
you've never turned me on
All I wanna say
is that I'm
outside your bubble
And from here,
it's pretty clear
your sphere is empty

It's not hard to feel resentment
for you and your friends,
but it's hard to write it down
After all of the bitching
and breaking of hearts,
You're still beautiful
and we hate you for it

I heard you through the air-vent
crying in the bathroom stall
with no-one there to pick you up
I saw you on the dancefloor later
dancing to a song I love

Do you have a dance for this song yet?
Do you have a dance for this song yet?

It's not hard to feel resentment
for you and your friends,
but it's hard to write it down
After all of the bitching
and breaking of hearts,
You're still beautiful
and we hate you for it
Track Name: Less Than This
Which part of
taking this slowly
were you not paying
careful attention to?
It's clear that
you misinterpreted
my intentions,
And I can't deliver

Can't we take a normal path?
You're moving much too fast

I want less than this
It's gone way too far
I want nothing more
than the sound of you breathless
Can this go back a step
or do I have to leave?
You could care less about me

This started
all hands and whispers
And that's the way I
wanted it to stay
You've built up
a strong relationship
based on fiction
I never encouraged you

Can't we take a normal path?
You're moving much too fast

I want less than this
It's gone way too far
I want nothing more
than the sound of you breathless
Can this go back a step
or do I have to leave?
Oh please, care less about me

I want less than this
It's gone way too far
I want nothing more
than the sound of you breathless
Can this go back a step
or do I have to leave?

Can't we take a normal path?
I wish that you had asked me
You're moving much too fast
You built this up without me

I want less than this
It's gone way too far
I want nothing more
than the sound of you breathless
Can this go back a step
or do I have to leave?
Be more careless about me
