  • Mendip Rock EP (CD Reissue) in Mini Record Sleeve with Limited Edition Posters
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The Mendip Rock EP, reissued in a beautiful printed mini record jacket with inner sleeve and re-sealable outer dust cover. Black vinyl-lookalike CD.

    Includes a numbered set of two limited edition poster prints. When placed side-by-side, the prints feature an extra-wide scenic panorama of the Mendip Hills from the Mendip Rock cover shoot, with the full lyrics to "Amber" printed underneath.

    Mendip Rock was released in the spring of 2008, and contains an extended cover version of the delightful Jagger/Richards authored foray into space rock, "2000 Light Years From Home", which originally appeared on the Stones' 1967 album, Their Satanic Majesties Request.

    Each of the two print panels is approximately 6" (154mm) tall x 17.5" (446mm) wide. Placed end-to-end, the combined width is approximately 35" (892mm). They are trimmed by hand, so final dimensions may vary slightly. Poster prints are rolled for shipping.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Mendip Rock via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Firefly, if you cry,
bolts of lightning split the sky
into shards of disbelief.
And, firefly, if you know,
why this circle ‘round again,
why another dance with grief?

Is it always down, down,
never rebound, safe and sound?
Is it always get through,
always make do?
You don’t have to.

Firefly, if you go,
no more sparkle in my eyes,
no more take away my voice.
Firefly, if you stay,
I know someday you will go;
that will always be the choice.

Is it always down, down,
never rebound, safe and sound?
Is it always get through,
always make do?
You don’t have to.

Like a little starry sky,
a reflection passing by—
a memory of fragile light,
and suddenly you’re burning bright.

Firefly, what you say,
I could take a thousand ways
and twist and turn it round and round.
And, firefly, what you mean
Is a mystery for oracles,
treasure never to be found.

Is it always down, down,
never rebound, safe and sound?
Is it always get through,
always make do?
You don’t have to.

(No, you don't have to...)
