    Mansbridge is a punk band from Montreal, Canada. But not just any other punk band. You may recognize them from their time in Farler's Fury. After a long hiatus with Farler's Fury, Mansbridge hit us over the head with their new self-titled EP. There is no question about their sense of urgency to get back on the road and start where they left off.

    "Mansbridge’s sound is that of a mid-90s pop-punk band that grew up and decided to play serious music. Society sucks. People suck, and nothing is certain.

    Mansbridge knows this, and this idea comes out in their lyrics. “Is the perspective of harm making you restless?” Yes, Mansbridge, and there is no escape. This sentiment of constant torture and the mind’s inability to cope is echoed throughout the course of their four-song E.P." - The Arthur, The Peterborough and Trent University Independent Press

lyrics

OUR GHOSTS

It had nothing to do with that day’s headlines
That issue just could not be unfolded right in front of my eyes
A register, a bystander and the courtesy of a poorly hidden .45
An impossible love triangle where life had to pick a side

Don’t ask me why my doors are locked
Or what’s wrong with my face
If I can’t have the space, I’ll need the time
I can’t deal with this today

What am I looking for? I never required your filthy services.
And fuck your shady invitation, I think I’ll pass What were you thinking? Making a mess and then cowardly fleeing, leaving the premises.
Sick and tired of walking on egg shells, let alone broken glass

Don’t ask me why my doors are locked
Don’t ask me what’s wrong with my face
If I can’t have the space, I’ll need the time
I can’t deal with this today

This is another call to arms, to kick down those Purgatory doors
Since we’re well aware that we’re not home at home anymore
Let’s put down on paper an exhaustive list of what we call “our ghosts”
And elaborate a plan to get back what we need the most
We might fuck shit up, but it will be all right
Yeah we’ll fuck shit up, but it will be all right

And from the top of the Holy Mountain I breathe the open air again
And I can’t help but wonder where the engineers went wrong
I will burn my own bridges when the right time comes
If your time is running out, doesn’t mean I have to fall

This is another call to arms, to kick down those Purgatory doors
Since we’re well aware that we’re not home at home anymore
Let’s put down on paper an exhaustive list of what we call “our ghosts”
And elaborate a plan to get back what we need the most
We might fuck shit up, but it will be all right
Yeah we’ll fuck shit up, but it will be all right
