Fibbo Not Xi - The Lost Koala Fires EP.

This EP was recorded the year before the official first Koala Fires line up solidified and was meant to be released as the initial Koala Fires EP. Matt Mooney utilized two friends Adam Wolf and Noah Allen from the then recently broken up band The Long Goodnight as a rhythm section and recorded these songs that he'd been demo-ing.

After this project was shelved the new line up of Kendall Bruns, Mike Paolucci, Matt Mooney and Dan Johnson, went on to record the "Sleep Tight Lucky Grills" EP with newer material that would truly launch the Koala Fires as a group.

Now that Koala Fires is Defunct, Mooney has decided to release this music for anyone left who might like to hear how the band really started.

Redeem code

Track Name: The Death of Ethel Green Glass
Well there's another one and he's breaking the code and he doesn't know why but he kind of feels old and he doesn't know what to say.
There's another one and she's calling HQ and ratting the snitch, but that's really old news, and she doesn't know what to say.

And another one got away.
And another one escaped.

There's another one and she's stealing a car. She's running from them not sure who they are and she doesn't know where to stay.
There's another one and he's losing his mind. His radio's down behind enemy line, but he's got nothing to say.

And another one got away.
And another one escaped.
Track Name: Will Causality Kill the Cat? You Decide.
The water flows on a predetermined course.
Do we know where it is going? Do we know?
It finds a way to go, the way it's least confined, you know,
Or is it truly bound by tragic fate?

An infinite amount of courses is narrowed by the probability
That water cannot find the end of it's cruel line
and it's traveled too far from it's source.

The blood it flows through the veins and arteries
on a predetermined course with seemingly no end.
Or does it know to go that way because it's bound
by such a clever thing as time and human hope?

An infinite amount of courses is narrowed by the probability
That blood will surely find the end of it's cruel line

And leave you wondering,
Where has all my blood gone?
And what's become of me?
Do I exist, do I not?
It's not a chance we're taking, it's more a choice we're making.
A choice you cannot make 'cause you already made it.
Track Name: Harriet
Harriet lies and fakes a cough
She's turned her conscience off and slept in
A home. That she calls home sweet home
It's where she hangs her hat and heartache
brings her pain. The echoes ring of a long sigh
Of disbelief of tell-tall grief the exhaled air brings no relief
And heavy medals line her walls
Expectation falls into a different category.

The disappointment calls her name. It's shared her deepest shame
Her deepest fear of bing solo, she can't hear herself think
Of grabbing her last drink, it'll be her last breath
Inhaled into lungs that never knew how to
Truly take in the atmosphere.

I'm sure we need you here.
I'm sure we need you here.
You think you're only notching someone's belt and they've never felt
The sharpened end of their pretend advocacy.
Track Name: Kissing the Invisible Man
Darling, close your eye and kiss me one more time
Before my lips disappear again.
You've held me close before as I was standing by your door
Now, your eyes are playing tricks, don't you think so?

Darling, please don't sigh, or ask the reasons why.
It's simply part of living with this man.
It's easier for me, to hide out or to leave
When things get out of sync with the master plan.

You opened your eyes but you could not see.
You felt all around but you didn't feel me.
I'm feeling alone while you're starting to wonder if I'm o.k.

It's like kissing the invisible man,
I think that you can't but you know that you can,
And you'll never give up trying 'til I finally stay.
Track Name: Travel League
My firebird, fitted with a nuclear core is traveling through time and space.
The queen of Mars, with her souped up Thunderbird is revving her sub-light drives

Driving faster
Driving in our cars
We're passing one another
And we're getting no where but we're driving all around

We just passed ourselves, or the selves we used to be before time lost a hold of us.
Now we're lapping us again. It's getting harder to know when this will end, or begin.

Driving faster
Driving in our cars
We're passing one another
And we're getting no where but we're driving all around
Track Name: Sleep is Missing (The Ones You Love)
This song will make you sleepy as you operate heavy machinery
And so you shouldn't listen if you know what's best for you
And you know what's best for you don't you?
And you know what's best for you don't you?
And you know what's best for you, of course you do

This song will make you sleepy as you're driving down the road
And so you should turn it off now if you don't want your car to explode
And you know what's best for you don't you?
And you know what's best for you don't you?
And you know what's best for you, of course you do

This song will make you sleepy as you're floating toward the moon
And so you should wear your earmuffs so your ears don't freeze too soon
And you know what's best for you don't you?
And you know what's best for you don't you?
And you know what's best for you, of course you do
