about

Little Sister is MS&F's first new material since 2011's 'The Man Who Said This Died of Alchemy'. It previews a new, fuller sound, with the addition of two more Fables, Adam James Cooper and Ged Robinson. An EP is planned for a mid-2012 release.

lyrics

Sarah, don't take the blame
For all of the bad things they've done
For which they're ashamed
Sarah, they'll tell you, you should
And they'll blame you for everything
From fractures to splinters of wood

Sarah, keep your heart closed
Keep your enemies close
In time, friends' disloyalty shows
Sarah, don't touch the drugs
Whilst they make you feel good
Believe me, they're no substitute for love

Don't walk around with your head in the clouds
Stay alert to their games
And hear what your heart says
Keep your head on, not like father and son
Always walking around in a daze

Sarah, I remember when you arrived
The solemn vow I took to make sure you survived
Sarah, I'd die for you
You know I'd steal, kill, lie and cry
But you know I can't live for you

Don't walk around with your head in the clouds
Stay alert to their games
And hear what your gut says
Keep your head on, not like father and son
Always walking around in a daze
Don't walk around with your head in the clouds
Stay alert to their games
And hear what your heart says
Keep your head on, not like father and son
Always walking around in a daze

My little sister
