Harm/Joy 02:52
Fought the need to rub it in but why'd I stoop so low Your levels in the dirt as far as roots will grow I couldn't help but feel it In my eyes I saw your pain What brought me joy Im having trouble trying to explain Harm/Joy at the misfortune I wanted to watch it all crumble at your feet grow weaker with every shed of effort that you put into it fucking it up with every chance you get The answer seemed so easy just like a brass ring right out of reach Eschew my mind in a new way drop the ball and start today tolerance it builds a wall take all I can and lose it all closer now another slip another chance to get a grip almost flew but then I tripped when I fell over my own leg
Turning Blue 03:28
Tied down to a railway track rope around my wrist behind my back waiting for a train headlight to come Another restless fit, roll around, roll around I felt myself getting sick again oh god I drown Turning Blue Its not on you I feel a blade up to my neck with air so deep inside my chest can't hold it in oh god I drown anxiety always rushing in almost like a best friend I wish I never met reluctantly I let it in oh god i drown
Groundwork 03:09
Laying groundwork yeah they lied I was just wasting time, spinning my wheels for life Tired old tunes, body bruised Small mention in the back page of the news no one seemed to read Scattered wood and all my dreams Flew out the door In a million pieces with everything Destroying any ounce of consciousness at the end of every night Sometimes it did'nt work, sometimes it didn't work And sometimes it worked But most times it did its job Distorted thoughts of you laying at home in the lurch too ashamed to phone can barely make the use of words
Nov/Dec 02:34
Is it getting easier with time Tried letting it go didn't even cross my mind bottled up inside, all at once it starts to boil and the tears start to well in the eye turn away in the light it always happens at the worst time November, December stuck between the months I remember everything at once Out of my hole I try to climb with every hold I take the ladder starts to break when I notice you in the signs one more time I don't think I can take another picture catching my eye I got you in my sight now, got you in my it always happens at the worst time


Official Video for "Turning Blue" by Justin Wilson

The TURNING BLUE EP asks some big, hard questions, concerns that have arisen organically in the band. In 2009, MacDougall was in a serious car accident. He lost a year to recuperation, a year in which it was unclear if he would be physically be able to return to playing music. MacDougall joined the Gamblers fresh out of high school: there is no Plan B. But the fastest way through darkness is just to drive right through the middle of it, and Broken Gold has emerged galvanized by what they’ve endured. Supported by Ben Lance (guitar), fellow Gambler Rob Marchant (bass), and Rich Cali (drums), MacDougall has written and recorded his best songs to date, mature and thoughtful but with the jittery anxiousness of youth. Broken Gold invite comparisons to indie rock legends—Superchunk in ’89, Dinosaur Jr in ’87, The Replacements in ’84—while sounding totally new, and totally their own.
