about

The impetus for this EP was a commission from the Juicebox Recording Company for their 2009 Christmas compilation. "A Very Glenhurst Christmas Eve" was the result, with the remaining two tracks being remixes of demos for Alex's other band, The Dead Elm Society of Canada.

For this EP, Burnt Norton was Alex Unger programming drum machines and singing in Lakefield, Ontario, November 2009.

Track Name: Home
and on the way back home I must have got lost
now I haven't seen familiar stars in a while
and on the way back home I must have got lost
and now I can't remember your smile
oh, but I still see
these pictures of me
and the life I was supposed to lead
a nice home in the country
with gardens and evergreens
and oh look is that you there beside me
but on the way back home I must have got lost
now I haven't seen familiar stars in a while
and on the way back home I must have got lost
and now I can't remember your smile
and goddamn these
lights from the city
they blind me, they bind me here
and right from the start
this wandering heart
guided these careless hands
oh on the way back home I must have got lost
now I haven't seen familiar stars for a while
and on the way back home I must have got lost
and now I can't remember your smile
Track Name: A Very Glenhurst Christmas Eve
chapped lips
grey hair
our homespun youth
has finally run its course
this is just our first christmas eve alone
electric candles
in the neighbours' windows
tv specials
to remind us that we come from monsters
on our first christmas eve away from home
while we might jockey
a nag called wild turkey
this is not
a race to the bottom
this is our first christmas eve away from home
things might look bleak
and we might feel empty
a bedroom finale
in your chinatown lingerie
this is just our first christmas eve alone
Track Name: Ransom & Reckoning
oil-soaked rags
dress the way I like you to dress
makes me feel like a monster
but I'm the only monster you've got left
a family history
of mental illness
I should've taken the ransom they offered me
in place of these paltry affairs
somewhere just inside the territories
there's a tiger waiting to devour me
a reckoning for all the monstrous things I've done
to the woman I loved
a family history
of mental illness
I should've taken the ransom they offered me
in place of these paltry affairs
