Thick Dad Starts off blissful and dreamy, but soon transitions into a series of snappy, tight, powerful and grandiose indie-alternative-electronic masterpieces. Jitterbug is one of the best EP closers I've heard in a long time, and combines both the epic and the beautiful together. Favorite track: Jitterbug.

Track Name: Shortcuts
Patience is a virtue
So I'll let you bide your time
Good luck filling her shoes
You'll trip when you walk the line
Pin me down in the middle of the night
Bless me with your whisper sweetness
Paralysed by a poison in the light
I'll still be here when you're gone

Didn't you hear
I'm on the run
I've got a million different people to please
My puppeteer
She's having fun
Stitching my heart to my sleeve
One too many shortcuts
Thousands too few prayers
I'm running low on tender loving care

Watch me as I watch you
As you start to sink your teeth
My troubles are skin deep
Whereas hers dive underneath
Wave goodbye to the disappearing day
Blow her an extra kiss
The day is long gone but I am here to stay
and the sunlight won't be missed

Didn't you hear
I'm on the run
I've got a million different people to please
My puppeteer
She's having fun
Stitching my heart to my sleeve
One too many shortcuts
Thousands too few prayers
I'm running low on tender loving care
Track Name: Bad Ideas
Sentimental Tuesdays
Fingernails and freeways
I've run out of bad ideas
Blu-tack up your daydreams
Stitch yourself some new seams
Don't choke on your own trachea
Eenie meenie minie mo
I never really meant to let you go
Eenie meenie minie mo
I never really meant to let you go

Now she's gonna try me
God only knows why
She must've heard I'm out of bad ideas
Waste away the weekend
Waiting in the deep end
She can't have heard so I'll make it clear
Eenie meenie minie mo
I never really meant to let you go
Eenie meenie minie mo
I never really meant to let you go

Never really meant to let you go
Track Name: In Transit
There's a different colour to the afternoon
Seven days in transit but I'll be home soon
I speak my mind however scattered it may be
She speaks in tongues tied in knots yet equally as free

Fly me to the autumn
I hear it's getting colder
Cry until you're empty
Can't promise you my shoulder
Fear the parts of myself
That only come when you go
Seven days in transit but I'm almost home

There's a different colour to the afternoon
Seven days in transit but I'll be home soon
I speak my mind however scattered it may be
She speaks in tongues tied in knots yet equally as free

Fly me to the autumn
I hear it's getting colder
Cry until you're empty
Can't promise you my shoulder
Fear the parts of myself
That only come when you go
Seven days in transit but I'm almost home

Seven days in transit but I'm almost home

Fly me to the autumn
I hear it's getting colder
Cry until you're empty
Can't promise you my shoulder
Fear the parts of myself
That only come when you go
Seven days in transit but I'm almost home
Track Name: Jitterbug
Her brother's jacket
Safe and warm
It's freezing but I'll keep the windows open
These awful habits
Are what we live for
Her fears become reality once spoken

What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?

Jitterbug
Force a smile and send me all your love
Hurricane
Rip through my heart send me head over heels again

Let's go somewhere quiet
Where I can hear
Each shiver as it resonates in my bones
Eager to try it
She's terribly near
Til' she's too far away on her way home

What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?

Jitterbug
Force a smile and send me all your love
Hurricane
Rip through my heart send me head over heels again


What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?
I'm here to take you home

What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?
I'm here to take you home

What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?
What planet are you from?

Jitterbug
Force a smile and send me all your love
Hurricane
Rip through my heart send me head over heels again

Jitterbug
Force a smile and send me all your love
Hurricane
Rip through my heart send me head over heels again
