"Pale Kids are four queer-punks from Durham, high on the fizzy pop they give you their latest opus and it's a total banger. A wise person once said that they sound like a mix of The Undertones (if Fergal Sharkey dropped acid instead of drinking Tizer), Slade and Protex, It's the sound of a party that you were never invited to."

It's about being sick, distracted, heartbroken, obsessed, inattentive and the guilt we feel for all these things.

Track Name: Prayer List
Prayer List

I’m hoarding minor ailments
I’m a patient, always waiting
I need stability
I can’t just rely on you thinking of me

I want rid x3
Crossing you off my prayer list

I’m hoarding get well cards
I leave them out for when the coughing starts again
I leave the house when I feel better
everything hurts and I regret it

I want rid x3
Crossing you off my prayer list

I’m crossing you off my prayer list...
Track Name: The Binder's Chills
The Binder’s Chills

I could never be that specific
I don’t know if I’d call it an illness
Maybe it’s just the binder’s chills
Are all my problems fictional?

Detach me, this is boring
Detach me, this is boring

I left my heart in the medica
where I exaggerated my temprature
The nurse is sick, sick of me
sick of my anxiety
I keep coming back with new tall tales
another excuse that’s bound to fail
but maybe it’s just the binder’s chills
are all my problems fictional?

Detach me, this is boring
Detach me, this is boring

Detach me...
Track Name: Boring
Boring

You took me in when I was filled with hate
I was the jacket that your brother
bent out of shape
Tie my hair up, absolve me from sin
but now i’m just the new shoes
that you’re struggling to break in

Am I heartbroken or boring?

Bless us, this holy mess
Back when we were kids, and I guess
just hold it in your lungs for longer
it will make the effects stronger

Am I heartbroken or boring?
Track Name: St. James
St. James

You’re my short term obsession
My Jim Reeves collection
I’m just trying to forget it

I’m so easily distracted
and it’s you it’s effecting
but I won’t forget it

A glowing reference to a dead pop star
I love you because you don’t take it too far
Forgive me for my short attention
I’ll move on in just a second

You’re my short term obsession
My Jim Reeves collection
I’m just trying to forget it

I’m so easily attached to
the next thing that falls through
But I won’t forget you

A glowing reference to a dead pop star
I love you because you don’t take it too far
Forgive me for my short attention
I’ll move on in just a second
