Initially a home recording project to get down some songs that had more of a punk rock feel, this EP was recorded solo. LRATL expanded into a full band towards the end of 2018, with an EP and full-length coming in 2019!

about

Lee Resistant Chatham Kent, Ontario

Hailing originally from London, England, Lee Resistant has a punk rock heart and a poet's soul, which comes pouring out on the "gritty, uptempo, roots-filled acoustic sound" of his latest release 'Your Country'; six heartfelt songs of loss and hope, failure and redemption, shot through with a healthy dose of emotional honesty. ... more

Track Name: The Choke
Keep my eyes on the slow climb if it'll make you feel alright,
Keep my mind wide open and everything's in sight,
And it makes me wanna know, how did you get so far from home?
Keep my eyes on the choke now, and everything we said,
Keep my heart, keep my focus, keep a level head,
And it makes me wanna know, how did we get so far from home?
I feel, I feel the choke,
Keep in mind the last time we decided, everything we broke,
We pushed too far, we pushed too hard, we pushed too much,
We pushed each other out of touch,
I feel the choke.
Track Name: Ballerina
All you needed was one person to help you understand this hurting.
If they can't look you in the eye when they tell you it'll be alright,
What the fuck do they know about living this kind of life?
All you want is just one moment when you don't feel like you're broken.
No matter what they do or say, we're gonna make it through today,
What the fuck do they know about anything, anyway?
Oh, my Ballerina, keep your heart's faith,
If I say I will be by your side, that's where I'm gonna stay.
Ballerina, keep your heart's faith.
Track Name: Lost & Won
I don't know what it was I said,
The words got broken in my head,
And didn't come out making sense.
I've been thinking these last few years,
Have I come around full circle here,
To find that square one disappeared.
These are days gone to the dogs,
A master plan of random thoughts,
Chalk this one up as a loss.

Those darker days weren't so easily replaced,
I made it through them anyway.
How far have I come? Looking back on all I've done,
What I've lost and what I've won.

Followed my heart to the west,
To make a future, not a mess,
Didn't work like that I guess.
As the years all fell away,
I told myself that it would be OK,
Well, what else could I say?
This is a life thrown to the wind,
Pick up the pieces and we'll start again,
I'm calling this a win.
Track Name: Five By Five
Tommy came marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching one by one, and they
All fell down 'fore the day was done,
Tommy came marching one by one, hurrah.

Tommy came marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching two by two, and they
All lay dead 'fore the day was through,
Tommy came marching two by two, hurrah.

Tommy came marching three by three, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching three by three, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching three by three, and they
Died in the mud down on their knees,
Tommy came marching three by three, hurrah.

Tommy came marching four by four, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching four by four, hurrah, hurrah,
Tommy came marching four by four, and there
Ain't gonna be no Tommy no more,
Tommy came marching four by four, hurrah.

Nobody's marching five by five, hurrah, hurrah,
Nobody's marching five by five, hurrah, hurrah,
Nobody's marching five by five, 'cos there
Ain't no motherfucker left alive,
Nobody's marching five by five, hurrah.
Track Name: Your Time Will Come
Look to the horizon, back to the sun,
Keep moving forward.
The past is behind you, what's done is done,
Onward and onward.
I got your back, you gotta know,
Your time will come.
And if I told you we've only begun,
Would you believe me?
Oh, I can see you way out in front,
Fired up and leading.
I got your back, you gotta know,
Your time will come.
