Through Constant Decay is The Narrows first EP. It is a dark, brooding collection that touches on post 9/11 paranoia, love, death and the human condition, all explored with a musical arsenal of loops, synths, scratching guitars, heart-pounding drums and melodic clarity.
It is an EP put together with precision and thought, from the songs to the artwork to the photography. If you download the EP as a whole (instead of downloading individual tracks) then you will recieve all the artwork, photos and lyrics to deepen the experience. This is at no extra cost, naturally. We’re The Narrows – not Rupert Murdoch.

Track Name: Noir

You're tearing through me like a hurricane.
You're stopping blood from getting to my brain.
I found your body on the kitchen floor.
And now you're all I know.

You're coming at me at my lowest ebb.
I can't remember what my mother said.
If I could only bring you back to life,
Then I could close my eyes.

You're heart was beating seven hours ago.
And I'm uncomfortable with what I know.
I stared a year into your broken face.
And there was nothing else.

And I hold your head.
And you hold me down.

I'm awake instead.
And you hold me down.

Like my mother said.
And you hold me down.
Track Name: Screamer

You took me down and you showed me how
And I know I couldn't go back now
You make me burn up like the sun
You make me feel like a loaded gun

You turn me on and you blew my mind
You make me want to give up all my time
You make me feel like I've just begun
You make me feel like a loaded gun

I know now, what I've become

A loaded gun
Track Name: WTC7

This was no accident at all.
They were rigged to make the fall.
It's in everything I know and all I am.

They came down with orders from
Those who wanted secrets gone.
It's in everything I know and all I am.

This was calculated for
Your premeditated war.
It's in everything I know and all I am.

I have seen through you, and everything you've done.
And I need truth.

I need your smoking gun.
Track Name: Waterboarding

Hold my head down now.

Hold your hand out now.

Beg forgiveness now.

And I can't find the strength to tell them shit I know.

So I'll just tell them shit I don't.

Call off the dogs, man.

You got my whole life.

You got my heart, man.

Give me a cold knife.

I bled a hole out.

I bled a whole belief away tonight.
Track Name: Poll

I took a hole and I filled it up.
I got inside and I sealed it up.
And until you're gone I won't come out again.

You send me off like a spinning top.
And now you won't ever let me stop.
And until you're gone I won't stand up again.

I saw your tie on the evening news.
And even that didn't have a clue.
And until you're gone I won't turn on again.

You push and poll at me.
You poll and push and poll at me.
And everything you say is a fucking liability.
You help yourself, but no one else.

You're on your own.

Your beautiful lies.
