about

Knibb High Football Rule's second album takes you on a journey to the heart of old Transylvania. The album explores the dualities of life through an eccentric mix of alternative, disco, and 70s rock. More refined and measured than As Much as the Moon, Knibb's sophomore album is sure to delight. So gather around and get in a circle!

Track Name: Keeping Secrets
The sand in my eyes and i can’t see what’s coming
Strangers are all around
Take what you want
Please don’t do anything like that
Can’t fight back

She’s keeping secrets and I’m not falling this time
Pictures are thrown about I can’t keep them around

There’s words all around and I just can’t find the meaning
The soldiers are all around
Take me alone
Please don’t leave me with men like that
Can’t go back

She’s keeping secrets and I’m not falling this time
Pictures are thrown about I can’t keep them around
Not seeing the point and maybe that’s a sign
She’s keeping secrets and I’m not falling this time

On and on and on

The sand in my eyes and I just can’t find the meaning
Track Name: Control the Current
It was a long time ago now
But you’re still here bending time
So feel each passing moment
You can’t slow the current

You don’t believe in change

My friend now you will find
You cannot turn back time
Play with wheels and gears
I know you can try you can try
My friend now you will find
Fate is the last thing you can fight
They’ll feed off all your fears
You cannot run you cannot hide

The creative interchange of human personality 
Rests upon the fact that we know we’re going to die
Of that the animals and the grass and so on knows nothing
But our knowledge of our death is what gives us a normal anxiety that says to us
Make the most of these years you are alive

Learn and come to see how
The mundane is sublime
So feel each passing moment
You can’t slow the current

The arrow of time flies

My friend now you will find
You cannot turn back time
Play with wheels and gears
I know you could try you could try
My friend now you will find
Fate is the last thing you can fight
They’ll feed off all your fears
You cannot run you cannot hide

You started a war that we could not contain
The rains just couldn’t bear the pain
You know it’s hard for me to say
We’ll leave that for now and just remain the same
Track Name: 4 D M C
You said that I wanted it, I wanted it
I’ve had enough of it, too much of this

Don’t stop, don’t stop
cause its alright tonight, tonight

It wasn’t fair it wasn’t right I never thought i’d be alone
if it happens don’t say I never told you so
I wasn’t who I thought i’d be I never thought I’d die alone
if it happens don’t say I never told you so

Years later and though it seems
I collected my money accomplished my dreams,
there’s no one to comfort me,
and when I look in the mirror these lonely eyes stare back at me
Track Name: Sleep Evil
Last night I didn't sleep so good
Last night I slept evil
'Cause although I did all that I could
Last night I did what I shouldn't

Last night you didn't sleep so good
Last night you slept evil
‘Cause although we did all that we should
Last night you did what I couldn't

Didn't need a map to figure out what was going wrong
it was all in your head
all the moments and all the songs
you were dreading everyday like your last
but that, that's all done
the fever in your chest pushes past all the planets
and all the suns

You can fiddle all the cracks
find all the creatures
and write the words
I tried to make it obvious
but you were fighting at every turn
Just open up your mind and let me show you
whats in store
the path is looking steep but I can promise
so much more
Track Name: Straw and Shadows
I built a wall to keep them safe from glowing eyes
Men of straw and shadows growing stronger every night
In a silent protest built my castle one more flight
until their numbers stop and turn in
the children's safety must be certain.

But it all went wrong
The men of straw were growing much too strong

In a panic I did what I thought was best
Devoted every moment to fight this impending death
When the brick and mortar cut a hole across the sky
and a mist of white sent shivers down my spine

a sudden pull
the wall came tumbling down, below.
but I didn't know
what was lurking in the waters close to home

I can't see them anymore
I can't see you
Track Name: Interlude
I can't sleep at night, I can’t sleep at night
I can’t see the light, I can’t see the light

Wait for the season to guide the way you know
Can't find the meaning outside no more 
I search for a reason to light our way you know
And find the meaning inside once more

She's crying out the words, we can't find the meanings at all
We’re singing the Earth a dirge, what was our reason to fall?

I can't sleep at night, I can’t sleep at night
I can’t see the light, I can’t see the light
Track Name: Song 12
Deciding on a possible entity
that could help with the melody
you always brought this on yourself
but I can't apologize now
in spite all the feelings
I lost the motions a long time ago

Fighting with no sense of reality
Till we fall to the entropy
you always said that I could tell
but I can't figure out how
we fell off the feeling
lost emotions a long time ago

The timing is all wrong
but you play it anyways
you play it anyways
I'm fighting a metronome
against the 3s and 4s
against the 3s and 4s

Inspiring any sense of an enemy
to remove any empathy
you always tried to make this hell
and I can't turn around now
in spite of the feelings
I lost emotions a long time ago

You brought this on yourself
I see the distance in a way you never did
Track Name: Inviting
I've found myself in a vicious circle.
My need for need,
is quickly consuming me.
I won't be alone:
I can't be alone;
You ought to know;
the fear in my mind.

can we meet
among the trees
away from all the silly human beings
yet invite the world
to our place
they've no reason to see

I'm just trying to break the mould
I'm just trying to get a little older

There was never
a proper way to
realize the way that you could
hold it all in

There was a moment
of refuge when you
were filling up the
oceans in the corners of your eyes
Track Name: Don't Go Outside
I still remember the 45 minute drives.
You pointed out the strangest clouds in the purple skies.
We drove out to nature, just to stay inside.
I still remember the 45 minute drives.

Don't go outside; you'll just hurt yourself.
Don't go outside; you'll just hurt yourself.


I can't remember this house feeling so empty.
All the times we spent together meant so much to me.
The note you left: I read it fifty times.
I can't remember a house feeling so empty.
You said have fun, learn, laugh, love, take care of each other.
You said have fun, learn, laugh, love, take care of each other.

I still remember the 14 minute drives.
I'd sing our favourite songs as a tear fell from my eyes.
The catchiest four bars ever written.
I still remember the 14 minute drives.
Music and memories go hand in hand.
Music and memories go hand in hand
Track Name: The Televangelist
The corners of the pages
Curled and split apart
The pains of an old proverb
I'm getting tired of the part

The people need a beacon
a man of great infection
selling promises and cures
through video reflection

You couldn't give
me your all
I left a note
for the fall
think all the times we could've shared

In the air
on the air
In the air
Everywhere

The pictures and the faces
of those who need my help
I get letters by the thousands
confident, but without

To people I'm a beacon
of love and misdirection
selling promises and cures
for per-minute collection.

I've given in
it's getting late
it's time to go
don't make me stay
just let me fade away

You couldn't give
me your all
I left a note
for the fall
Missed the times we could've shared
In the air
on the air
In the air
Everywhere
Track Name: Nowhere Else to Go
I saw infinity in a pearl
I realised we're in a world
Maybe within grasp

I tried to take a big step back
I saw four colours on a map
Maybe that's all it needs

We saw two ladders holding hands
We start to think we understand
Or maybe not so much

I saw infinity in a pearl
I realized a better world
May be within our grasp

We saw our home become a dot
That pale blue light is all we got
Try not to mess this up

We can choose where to put our hearts
Make things collide and split apart
Let's find out whats inside

And it's no cause to run and hide
That there are things we can't decide
Even with all time

We saw our home become a dot
More beauty than we ever thought
Don't wanna mess this up

We saw a serpent throwing sparks
And yet perhaps it's much too hard
To know the stuff of thought

And when it comes to what we're told
Far too quick to fill a role

We heard a story from a ghost
I think it may have told the most
Of what we once were

Oh can we know the stuff of thought
Merely circuits on and off?
Are we circuits on and off?
Or are we just a second thought?
And one day we'll come to see
What you and me are made of

Take care don't you know
We got nowhere else to go?
Can't you open your mind
To the wonders that you'll find

We soar to great heights
But it doesn't end the fight
Can't you see that one day
Like the stars we'll fade away?
