about

When The Crystal Furs first started, we were a duo recording at Kevin's house and going by the name "Pentacon Six." After growing into a full band, we decided to choose a new name to better reflect our new group dynamic and maturing sound.

The first three singles we released under the name "Pentacon Six" have been gathered here on this digital EP, "The Pentacon Sessions."

Track Name: Capture You
Think you're so clever?
Think you're so charming and so deep?
You are transparent
You are a drag - you're just a creep

I see right through you
Then I capture you…

Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid of the mind

You're so beloved
The whole damn town's in love with you
But I know your secret
So now what are you gonna do?

I see right through you
Then I capture you…

Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid of the mind

I see right through you
Then I capture you…

Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid of the mind

Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid
Captured in a Polaroid of the mind
Track Name: Nobody Walks
They tore down the neighbor's house for a parking lot
The tore down the corner store for an overpass
They filled in the public pool out of laziness
And now everything is rubber, steel, and glass

This post-war dream's just double talk
Cardboard walls and granite shlock
Empty streets and barren blocks
It's no wonder nobody walks
Nobody walks

They sold off the library to a drive-through chain
And built up a highway in my bedroom
None of it has ever satisfied the crowd
It's just an endless concrete-colored gloom

This post-war dream's just double talk
Cardboard walls and granite shlock
Empty streets and barren blocks
It's no wonder nobody walks

Drop billions on the concrete
The freeway's got to expand
Put living in the backseat
This car's wish is our command

This post-war dream's just double talk
Cardboard walls and granite shlock
Empty streets and barren blocks
It's no wonder nobody walks
Nobody walks
Track Name: Summer's Over
Once more summer came and went
Reflect on how your days were spent
Walking through the downtown square
Breezes blow the dress you'd wear

Another night spins into day
Drinking all your cares away
What's the point in going back?
Your thoughts derailed along the track

And what will you say
When you give your heart away
And what will you do
When the ones you thought you knew
Fall from the cliffs of Dover
Returning to the foam
And now summer's over
And I'm going home

You spend the nights in wordless haze
Thinking about all the ways
You judged the friends you used to know
You found them wanting, even so

It's easy to be cynical
Which leads to over-critical
Now the people all have gone
There's no-one left you can count on

And what will you say
When you give your heart away
And what will you do
When the ones you thought you knew
Fall from the cliffs of Dover
Returning to the foam
And now summer's over
And I'm going home
