The Word (Sunset Mix). Word. Our fourth single release for 2022. And number eight on your … OR IN CYPRUS program, boys and girls. The last of the four songs to be lifted from THE WORD, our unofficial eighth full-length release. For this release we wanted to do something a little different so we invited a mobile recording unit from Las Vegas, Nevada to give our top ten tracks a gloss over. Akin to having a pizza delivered with everything you love on it. Except … they make it at your house. In this case, CandyLand. And perhaps it’s only fitting that this song close things out. The album, THE WORD, features two versions of this song; the bonus track being called ALL THE TIME. All The Time was the original working title for the track. I played it for CM Sadler and it found its way onto the album. And eventually became the title track, no less. Not bad for a track I hadn’t even considered. Because THE WORD was intended as a Bandcamp exclusive we knew we couldn’t not share anything. So we lifted two previously unreleased tracks, Expecting Rain and this one. I had squirrelled these two songs away for an album down the line. The songs just needed a mix. I had planned on getting around to it once I had assembled an album’s worth of material. CM Sadler took care of that. And left you some new singles. So although the album THE WORD is exclusive to our website and Bandcamp, you can get a taste on your favourite media platform. Christmas came early … speaking of which … xoRJ


There once was a word
In the land of make believe
Wondered about it
All the time

Word was in fables
In text I could not read
Just kept me guessing
All the time

Word was spoken all the time
Book just kept on closing all the time

Seems like I’m moving
Maybe find my “okay”
Keep myself waiting
All the time

Can’t seem to shake it
It all comes into play
Close enough to miss it
All the time

Still I listen for it all the time
Word is getting closer all the time
Listen for it - eyes wide open

Ancient tongues that spoke it all the time
Ears that listen for it all the time
Listen for it - and eyes wide open

Still I listen for it all the time
All the time …
Still I listen for it all the time
I listen for it all the time
