"Eightfold" as written by and Luke Boerdam Luke Henery....
I guess ill wait in line for the next life
Put all my coattails on to impress you
Faux nihilist cop inside
Blessing everyone
Been waiting all this time

Let me in
I'm alright

Cause they say
What they want
Preaching males
Ego high
Pushed aside
Pushed behind
Just shut up
You'll be fine

Cause I'm waiting for an answer
Give me my next line
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now

They got the holy shakes
Glossolalia
They'll pop like soda now

Let me in
I'm alright

Cause they say
What they want
Preaching males
Ego high
Pushed aside
Pushed behind
Just shut up
You'll be fine

Cause I'm waiting for an answer
Give me my next line
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now

Watered eyes and vision kings
Selling everything
Chirping with a frown
England couch life aint the thing
Like a magazine
A rut stuck in your mind

Cause they say
What they want
Preaching males
Ego high
Pushed aside
Pushed behind
Just shut up
You'll be fine

Cause I'm waiting for an answer
Give me my next line
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now
Waiting for an answer
I wont eightfold now

    Song MeaningOfficially from the band:

    Two songs – ‘Eightfold’ and ‘Gold Coast’ – came together the week we were heading into the studio. Going into pre-production we felt the record was getting too soft for our liking and we had thrown away so many of the heavier tracks. I stumbled through some riffs I was working on and the band said “What the hell are you doing – finish those songs now!” I literally finished writing the songs in pre-production and didn’t have lyrics until I started vocals in the studio. Having played two shows with Cloud Nothings definitely helped shaped these songs – they’ve become one only favourite bands recently.

    My InterpretationSpeaking as Siddhartha, the Buddha, this song is about the eightfold path that is used to achieve Nirvana. This can be justified in the song where it says "I won't eightfold now" and "I guess I'll wait in line for the next life."
    Remember to live with the 4 noble truths and don't forget to live in moderation ;)
