WU LYF Break Up

Posted by: Kyle Huntington (11/24/12)
WU LYF has seemingly broken up. A new track titled "T R I U M P H" was posted on YouTube with a message from singer Ellery James Roberts. The band's debut album Go Tell Fire To The Mountain was released in 2011 and they also featured in our Absolute 100 of the same year. Hit the replies to hear the new song and read the full and detailed message posted alongside it.
From The StatementWU LYF is dead to me. The sincerity of "Go tell fire" was lost in the bull shit of maintaining face in the world we live. Clap your hands chimp everybody's watching. A year spent losing faith; Innocence lost wide eyes see clear the dark. There's blood running down streets of every city in the world, what's a song to do, pretend it mean everything/nothing to you. Another distraction from the world we live. I and I struggle for a based positivity...

By the time I wrote this I was all ready gone. You know you aint got nothing but time, but time isn't an infinite currency I want to see wasted. If this is our last month living, apocalypse looming, I am not going to spend my final hours waiting in purgatory. I am done. There is nothing here that inspires/ interests me beyond the emptiness for dreams. and I don't want to spend my life asleep; dreaming of a....

Wake up! We stay safe/ everything is golden/ in this place.

P E O are P L E the world over. Your beautiful and strange, and I love you. But The Great Longings calling and I'm young and free enough to try and answer.

I am gone. This isn't the end. This is the begging.
We done business to be as free as we want to be; I'm exercising this freedom. Manchester and the life we maintaining is leaving me empty. It is a beautiful/ incredible/ insane world we live and I'm done walking round in baby step circles in a self involved bubble. WU LYF isn't that important. So go do what you want to do. If you wanna play together, Play! your talented musicians so don't waste that. I am bored of the most challenging thing in WU LYF being deluding myself of its relevance. Dirty free, as that show ended it concreted my decision that a change has to come. "Be the change you want to see" said a wise old man.
I'm going to keep on doing what I do; if the time comes in the future where we all truly want to collaborate on something then that door is always going to be open; I have nothing but love for you all.

But I want to live life that's true to me.

Stay safe
your Brother from another mother...

The sound of your breath, your face my first sight.
As the sun brakes a new day, we survived the night.
I know you want to make something of this great longing called life.
Like your hearts drunk on kerosene and all you need is a light.
Nobody but you gonna, gonna make life happen.
Through all the pain its only, you who can make paint it holy.
You don't have to live this life.
You know you aint got nothing but time.
Singing go run away

Hold your head up high
Lift you fists up to the sky
You don't have to live this life.
you know you aint got nothing but time.

It took me my brother's life to get here
It took me to greet death to lose all fear. To Lose all fear

Hold your head up high
Lift you fists up to the sky
You don't have to live this life
You know you aint got nothing but time. Nothing but time.

To live a life that's true
The world we live is only what we were born into.
No matter what the money men have said to you
you are the only god.

WE THE P E O;
YOU KNOW WE JUST P L E.

Bummer. I wonder if this is in part a response to having that song of theirs in that Toyota (?) commercial?
