about

'Constitution Failed' was used in Waterloo Road on BBC1. The song features at the end of episode 12 of series 7. 'Cry For The City' also appears in the same episode as background music. Episode 12 aired on Wednesday 21st September 2011 on BBC1.

The full versions of both these songs will be available on our album Molehills Out Of Mountains, set for release by the end of 2011.

There is no minimum price for this download. Please pay as little or as much as you feel it is worth to you. At the end of the day, we would rather you downloaded it for nothing rather than not at all.

This is the second time our music has featured in Waterloo Road. In the spring of 2011 'DIY', from our Vast Atlantic EP, was used to end episode 2 of series 7.

lyrics

Cover over everything
Paper over cracks until it’s fine
Fine at least for now

Try your best to disappear
Convince yourself that we can see
See quite far enough

As the poles retreat we face defeat head on
Kill the light parade the last exploding bomb
Feel the Fahrenheit, the last daylight
The constitution failed to be, something

Confident yet paralysed
Terrify the president elect
Elected by a thief

Take a vow of honesty
Promise to eliminate the poor
But the poor are voiceless here

As the poles retreat we face defeat head on
Kill the light parade the last exploding bomb
Feel the Fahrenheit, the last daylight
The constitution failed to be, something

More than I could hope to be
Drowning helpless in the sea
Carried by a rising tide
Need to remedy this life
