I'm recording on a tiny little tape in the garden The date is the 2nd of May 2020 Press pause, before we reload Go back, go slow Stop before our lungs implode We all want to breathe The shop will always be the same It never had an end game Your blood and tears its Sweet bitter flame To burn you again and again. Till you tasted nothing, but more debt and pain. Ooo that's a bit deep isn't it!

21st Century Cry Drugged up on money Dreaming you dry In traffic light city Everything’s to buy
 That’s the 21st Century Cry There’s a man tearing them apart Waging a cold war with their hearts In cages and rages the kids behind bars Scream at a world that say they can’t! It’s the 21st Century Cry Stop them now before it’s time And our children lose the right To a world, not on fire I can see the traffic lights ahead They’re selling a lie, not what they said As they sip their champagne on their private jets Our planet below takes its final breaths! It’s the 21st Century Cry Stop them now before it’s time And our children lose the right To a world, not on fire!

Cracking up in the supermarket While they’re tearing down the free Take a moment to think about it But there’s a limit to me Checking out of the world this morning I need a moment you see There’s another disaster looming And there’s a limit to me Limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit you see, for being free Narcissism check your temperature You’re about to go sky high! It’s about time we washed our hands of you I’m not jealous or delirious I’m just empty with the rage of us And confined to a human race, slow down Limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit you see, for being free Limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit for being, free Like a stir crazy cocktail maker Cabin fever is my latest vapour Please pass another glass my dear! So I’m going back to you Keep it simple with the things we do Your smile is my only point of view Cause there’s a limit to me, limit to me Limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit to being, free Limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit to me, limit to me There’s a limit you're seeing, for being free Cracking up in the supermarket While they’re tearing down the free Take a moment to think about it But there’s a limit to me Checking out of the world this morning I need a moment you see There’s another disaster looming And there’s a limit to me A limit to me, a limit to me A limit to me, a limit to me A limit to me, a limit to me

Lightning flash, So moustache Will you help me? Make it grow All finesse, and confidence Will you help me? I wanna know Just fake it till you make it Don’t be afraid to call Your mama, cause she knows You’re the best that you are! She said fake it till you make it Don’t be afraid to fall, The best of us are down here looking up at the stars. Curly hair Don’t despair You are fireworks! Let em grow! Lightning flash, You’re so moustache See you dancing On the moon! Just fake it till you make it Don’t be afraid to call Your mama, cause she knows You’re the best that you are! She said fake it till you make it Don’t be afraid to fall, The best of us are down here, looking up at the stars. Lightning flash So relaxed Babe you’ve got it Let it go! Fabulous, so T-Rex Time to strut it Oh I told you so! Just fake it till you make it Don’t be afraid to call Your mama, cause she knows You’re the best that you are! She said fake it till you make it Don’t be afraid to fall, The best of us are dancin’ looking up at the stars. Lightning flash So moustache Babe you’ve got it I told you so All finesse and confidence Babe we got it Come on let’s go!

Oh progress has been made But it's a little bit too late And I can see the disappointment in your eyes We never saw it coming Even though the world was humming A little bit too loud for us to hear We looked into the mirrors Could see that we were thinner As selfish as the children that we made But realised eventually That this was not the way to be That strip lights cannot replace the sun Tear them down I wanna see the sun Tear them down I wanna see the sun It's for everyone People packed like cigarettes By bankers, who do not care less And turn their backs When it all goes up in flames And while the world is burning They forget that it's still turning Endlessly destroying what they made We are humans, we are hypocrites We love the things that don't exist And hate, what we refuse to understand So all that is left to say is Who really cares anyway 'Cause you see, progress has been made Tear them down I wanna see the sun It's for everyone Tear them down I wanna see the sun It's the only one Tear them down I wanna see the sun It's for everyone

Before I go, there’s something you should know, The question mark, that’s scratched upon my soul. As plastic tides rise beyond our cries, Can it be true that our progress has been lies? A lightning flash, a cabin fever high, Will this great pause really make us realise?

about

Fuzzy’s new EP - The Great Pause is a playfully political cosmic folk pop treat for your ears! Hear the birth of her new ‘Electro-Glam-Folk’ sound, inspired by Lockdown 2020.

Written and recorded in Fuzzy’s makeshift home sofa-studio, in Leeds UK. This is a unique self-produced piece, that marks a strange moment in time – comfortable but, uncomfortable, a way of processing a crisis, feeling a little less helpless, a 21st century cry! Hopefully it will bring you some calm in the chaos.

“What a great first [self-produced] EP. Sounds amazing!” (Ableton A&R)
