released October 10, 2015

The Freemen owe thanks and gratitude to many:

Family- For lugging gear around, giving lifts to the dark depths of Woden, tolerating loud and unnecessary noise and providing support that without this album would not be possible.
Mark Sutton and Greg Stott of Hi-Hat Studios- Your generous kindness allowed us to record in your wonderful studio with your up to the minute gear, while providing professional guidance for young musicians who don't know what they are getting into.
Mark Webber- For mixing the album with the utmost patience and thoughtfulness while allowing for our untrained input and ideas to be heard without dismissal. A rare amount of respect held for naive musicians that was greatly appreciated.
Alan Hilvert Bruce for the hire of a Fender Super-Champ.
Liam Hancock for his gracious lending of a Mesa Boogie.
Pat Walker for his nice and glossy edit of our album cover.
Sean Martin for all his gracious work on our art.
and finally to all of our Friends who come to our gigs, listen to our music and share it with other people, you make this happen.

about

The Freemen Canberra, Australia

The Freemen are a lovely little 5 piece that play funk-laced indie rock for the masses. Hailing from the wonderful wilderness of the A.C.T, these high-schoolers take many influences from groove based rock like Franz Ferdinand to more melodic bands such as the Smiths layered with smooth classical vocals. They are currently riding high of the release of their debut E.P Get Free. ... more

Track Name: Stand and Deliver
Broken boy with a fire in his heart
At the finish line, got no place to start
World of choice with options to consider
What a mess, this is not your best boy
Stand and deliver

Bad dreams, puts on his black jeans
Washed out with a coffee at 9am
Turns on the TV again
Sad face, you are a disgrace
Back to bed for a little longer
Spikes his coffee with something a little bit stronger

Broken boy, he's been that way for years.
The fire in his heart was extinguished by his tears
Too afraid to grow but not afraid to wither
What a mess this is not your best boy
Stand and deliver

There's a world out there
So go fix your hair, wear a smile instead,
And start again
Find a pretty girl, she could change your world,
Put on a brave face

Stand and deliver
Stop wasting time
Stand and deliver
Stop wasting mine

Broken boy he's been that way for years.
Fire in his heart was extinguished by his tears,
Sing a song of six pence, pocket full of rye,
There's a world out there so go fix your hair and open up your eyes

She's a pretty girl
She could change your world
I can see a smile,
You're starting again
Now the coffee's gone,
Boy your on your own
Put on your brave face

Stand and deliver
Stop wasting time
Stand and deliver
Stop wasting mine
Track Name: Silver Lining
Do you hear me calling?
Let me tell you about a thing that you do
Cause the cold look I get from those brown eyes
Keep me frozen and turn me blue

You kick me in,
Then you kick me out
And back again

There is something I'd like to say
Baby, I hate this way

When you say my name
There's no one I can blame
Darling, dear I put myself right back into the game

Your brown eyes
Tell no lies
Set me free
Your hair
It ain't fair

You know what you're doing to me
You're my silver lining

I already did my time
For loving you, which was a crime
Took the test, and set to trial
The fact of the matter was, I was in denial

But the truth right from the start
You were the one who stole my heart

When you say my name
There's no one I can blame
Darling, dear I put myself right back into the game

Your brown eyes
Tell no lies
Set me free
Your hair
It ain't fair

You know what you're doing to me
You're my silver lining
You're my silver lining

Your brown eyes
Tell no lies
They set me free
And your hair
It ain't fair
Cause you know what you're doing to me
Your brown eyes
Tell no lies
They set me, they set me free

You are my silver lining
Track Name: Superman
Waiting hours in line
Now it's finally time
Feel the G-force
It's all for the thrill

Glowing candy
Kryptonite

Enjoy the ride

Track Name: Prey
No, you're not deadly
But you definitely ruining me
Take flight
Predator of the night

Kick me in and kick me out
Baby set me back again

Go away, I don't want you here
First to last, why can't I disappear?
Got right in the back, I didn't feel the strike
Firefly

Little darling, won't you come and walk my way
I've got a hundred and one things that I'd like to say
To you
Take flight
Predator of the night

Kick me in and take it off
Set me back again

Go away, I don't want you here
First to last, why can't I disappear?
Got right in the back, I didn't feel the strike
Firefly

Little honey, everything I ever do
I do it for you
Take flight
Predator of the night

Kick me in and kick me out
Set me back on fire

Don't you know, don't you know
I'm on fire
Come on, won't you set me on fire
Track Name: Sleep
Over there I'm in,
In the fields of green
Crying clouds they speak
Sleep now

For me and you I know
This time it feels so cold

Sleep now
Say your prayers

Backed against the wall
Feet fall through the floor
I'm not afraid to crawl

For you and me I know
This time it feels so cold

Sleep now
Backed against the wall
Feet fall through the floor
I'm not afraid to crawl

The clouds hit with decision
Gold rain
I'm forgiven
I'm forgiven

For you and me I know
This time it feels so cold

Sleep now
Track Name: Nothing to Say
Find me
Sittin' alone in the back streets
See my speech box is empty
I've got nothing to say
Dedication, it wasn't enough
You just took off when the times got tough
Seems to me that pride is keeping you away

They say miracles can happen
Boy, I wish that was true
Cause the chances of you coming to me
Are the same as me coming to you

Oh-oh-oh I've got nothing to say to you
Anymore
It seems to me that only yesterday we were fine
I guess that we just ran ourselves out of time
I should have seen the signs
Read between the lines

You found me
I'm still sitting alone in the back streets
My speech box is empty
I still have nothing to say
Your dedication
It still wasn't enough
You just took off when the times got tough
Seems to me that pride is keeping you away

They say miracles can happen
Boy, I wish that was true
Cause the chances of you coming to me
Are the same as me coming to you

Oh-oh-oh I've got nothing to say to you
Anymore
It seems to me that only yesterday we were fine
I guess that we just ran ourselves out of time
I should have seen the signs
Read between the lines

The only thing we lost was a friend
I went right and you went left
We should stop trying to pretend
That we both didn't lose a friend
And I'm gonna see how to mend it
And how we are going to fix this again

They say miracles can happen
Boy, I wish that was true
Cause the chances of you coming to me
Are the same as me coming to you

Oh-oh-oh I've got nothing to say to you
Anymore
It seems to me that only yesterday we were fine
I guess that we just ran ourselves out of time
I should have seen the signs
Read between the lines
Track Name: Silhouettes
Standing here
All by myself
Silent symphony
Slowly plays for me
I'm up so high
Too afraid to fall
I'm a melody
Take a look inside my silhouette

This is who I am
This is who I am
This is who I am

I tasted the sadness, it's sweet but bitter
I looked behind this black silhouette
I told you once, so I stood and delivered
Mine is a face that I should never ever forget

Sometimes it stays
Sometimes it goes
Silent symphony
The one that plays for me
Sometimes I guess
I think, I know
The face I always forget
The face of the symphony of silhouettes
Now I guess I'll take a look at mine

This is who I am
This is who I am
This is who I am

I tasted the sadness, it's sweet but bitter
I looked behind this black silhouette
I told you once, so I stood and delivered
Mine is a face that I should never ever forget

Silent symphony
The one that plays for me
The symphony of silhouettes

This is who I am
