about

ZIGO Sevenoaks, UK

What started as a crazy idea in an attic space in September 2005 has become something beard-strokingly serious for four teenagers with delusions of grandeur. Mashed Potato grew into Icarus, and then into ZIGO, and from the sweaty depths of boys’ bedrooms - young mens' now - flowed a unique sound, a blend of their love for artists ranging from Radiohead to Robert Johnson and Focus to Foals. ... more

Track Name: This House of Sin
Swallow it all down
And then you spit at me
Such poetry
You’ve such dignity
You can be so cold sometimes

I want to know the difference
Between the chosen and the damned
How did we end up like this
This was never what we planned

Any excuse, any excuse
You know you’ll take any excuse
Just to break your silence
Baby it’s a shame
A crying shame
You know it’s a goddamn shame
Because we could have built something

Take me to the edge
Push me to the brink
Take me to the point where I can touch space and time
Take me to the edge
Push me to the brink
Baby, you know
You can be so cold sometimes

The Devil, the Devil
He never said a word
But he let me in
I know Nothing
She never felt so good
As in this House of Sin

So lonely
My eyes are yours
We could fall and
our eyes could lose their purpose
Our senses become worthless

You are a son to someone
You are a daughter to no one

And I suffered, how I suffered for you
And I came out brand new
And I’m so fired up
It’s so easy just to give it up
Track Name: Highly Strung
My mouth is shaped to form these words
Now I’m surrounded by what I’m not
One kiss from you says it’s over
But I’m in the mood to be right

I spent so long working out
Which way’s up
That now I’m down
Can you tell me when enough
Will ever be enough
Or is that to much to ask?

My mouth is shaped to form these words
Now I’m surrounded by what I’m not

I spent so long working out
Which way’s up
That now I’m down
Can you tell me when enough
Will ever be enough
Or is that to much to ask?

Walking in the garden
Asleep in my clothes
Walking in the garden
My eyes fully closed
Track Name: Grace
Call me when you’re down
And I’ll make sure that your arms are broken
Call me when you’re down
And make sure your heart is open
Come up, come around
And I’ll make sure your words are spoken
Fall into the ground
And let all of the earth pour over

Palm me off a cigarette
It hasn’t happened yet for me

Defined by the Northern Lights
We set fire to the first pyre
Pushed it out into the water
You know it’s alright
And to watch him take flight is helping you see
That what you had
And what you lost
Are not the same thing
They’re not the same thing

I just want you to know
You can let him go
And no-one’s going to judge

It’s bigger than us
So raise both of your hands above us
Angels into dust
So place both of your hands upon the cross
All that love, baby all that love
I’ve seen empires fallen for less
Call me when you’re down
Oh baby, what a terrible mess

Defined by the Northern Lights
We set fire to the first pyre
Pushed it out into the water
You know it’s alright
And to watch him take flight is helping you see

That what you had
And what you lost
Are not the same thing
Alright, alright
Baby, come home with me tonight
Where what I give
And what you gain
Could be the same thing
They’d be the same thing

I just want you to know
You can let him go
And no-one’s going to judge
Track Name: Pact
You never listen to a word I say
You never touch me, only push me away
Another meeting ran on late
And when you get home, the kids are crying

I never touched him, but yes we spoke
Our tongues curled heavy around the coffee and smoke
I guess he’s laughing at my jokes
A little more than you do lately

Now it’s all over the news

This is the way we love
Like it’s not good enough

Stop making fires
Stop making fun out of me
It was never the music, baby
It was you who led me to drugs
If I’m a selfish lover once
Then I’m a selfless liar twice
Because I have tried,
and I know neither was enough

When I met you
I first broke that old pact with myself
To never love anyone else
Except for me
And now I see you’re not unique
Because I’d break it again
When she looks at me
When I met her
I first broke that old pact that we share
To never let anyone else
Compare
But now I see you’re not unique
I don’t know where I’ll be
Track Name: I Guess I Better Be Getting Gone
Like waking up from a violent dream
With open eyes and a child’s scream
You walk out
On me

I never really know what to say
Just take my hand and I lead the way
They come to me so lonely
They come to me so lonely and still

Mama, I cut my tongue out
In the hope I’d never find home
Mama, I ripped my heart out
Just to taste a little love
Mama, I set the fire
So I guess I better be getting myself gone

Mama, am I still a child in your eyes
When I’ve touched so much I know that I’m alive?
