    "A lushly recorded work with all of the dark, caterwauling menace of the heavier end of 4AD's output - at times sounding like some unholy hybrid of the Pixies and This Moral Coil."
    The Active Listener

    ""The Only Truth Is Music" seems a brash declaration for the title of a band's debut album. But in this case though it fits perfectly. His Name Is Codeine have produced a complex, dynamic and ambitious record which is just as comfortable trawling the sleazy gutters as it is shooting for celestial highs." Peenko

    "Forsaking where you came from…no matter where that is, even if it caused you some troubles. His Name Is Codeine is here to tell you a story about that…" Sunrise Ocean Bender

    "A tonal trip that’s leading into a landscape of nightly psych rock and shoegaze, circulating somewhere between The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Velvet Underground and Spiritualized." Clank For Breakfast

lyrics

I'm not saying it's never gonna happen
Things go on and on and on
Got no control lost my light
Skinned my knees when I fell in a puddle
Two whole days to the end of the world
Two whole days to the end of the world
I always thought of Vegas I got no time
Time that day I ran into trouble
Who shot me as I turned my back
Who shot me as I turned my back
Why do you wanna be a little different girl?
I wouldn't wanna be different at all
I'm not saying it's never gonna happen
I'm not saying it's never gonna happen
Sugar didn't rot my memory
I told you once but you never really listen
Sugar didn't rot my memory
But alcohol and time just might
I wouldn't wanna be a little different girl
I wouldn't wanna be a little different girl
You're so pretty and I'm so dull
Pretty dull pretty dull pretty pretty damn dull
You're so pretty and I'm so dull
Pretty dull pretty dull pretty pretty damn dull
