about

Ernest Ellis Sydney, Australia

Ernest Ellis & The Panamas have been playing together for about three years now and it's been recently decided that they're sick of being asked whether Ernest Ellis is a solo thing or a band so they have decided to slightly alter the name to Ernest Ellis & The Panamas. ... more

Track Name: Sons and Daughters
Ghost of faith,
call my name and leave a light on.
On an eight mile sea,
the time goes faster with the light on.

Well there you go with your islands for islands,
I know, I can see it.
But I never met you,
and I never want to with the light on.

Cause that home is what you make it,
and I never wanted sons and daughters.
Well that home is what you make it,
and I never wanted my sons and daughters.

It never stays,
but you can't be thinking that way.
With the one eye open.

But my golden tells me how
to pull my insides out,
and cover them up for years,
we'll cover up those fears.

But that home is what you make it,
and I never wanted sons and daughters.
Well that home is what you make it,
and I never wanted my sons and daughters.
I want time.
Track Name: Caroline
I went from the island to my head,
you never notice now.
How about another taste of the love,
well just don't ask me how.

Caroline, well she's not coming back.

Now that we're looking into the light,
she'll only talk when the body fades.
And when you walk out here without it,
she'll ask the open eye to pray.

Caroline, well she's not coming back.

You want it, no greater lie.
You wanna take the time today.
You wanted, those satellites.
You wanted a red line to break.

Caroline, well she's not coming back.
Not all my kids I know.
Caroline, she's not coming back.
To the only city I know.
Caroline, well she's not coming back.
Down to Deerhorn.
Caroline, well she's not coming back.
Track Name: Give In, Give Up
You have to give in,
you have to give up.

It's a wave of desperation.
We all come back down.
Track Name: Great Sky
Well I fell asleep for hours,
but it wasn't the sleep I want.
It was all about the things she hides,
and then later on what a fool I am.
This place is not your friend,
it's just a way to the heart.

Take away the time we put into our lives,
lay down on the bed and I'll say do you want,
Do you want a great sky?
A great sky?

We haven't been too far,
never been on a holiday.
Well I'd rather talk the place down here tonight,
with all my girls.

I don't wanna lie right to your face,
you just lay down on the bed and I'll say do you want,
do you want a great sky?
A great sky?

We need a great sky.
We need all that want.
Track Name: Blackhole
They'll take us through it
and tell you what you know.
Well that sounds right,
compared to those colours that die alone.
And not with my neurosis.

But the day light is gonna shine on
that first silence of my own.
And when it all comes back to me,
it'll be unknown.

The black hole I came through,
is the only one I knew.
And the balance in my mind,
needs to hear I want you one more time.

The black hole I came through,
it's the only one I knew.
And the balance in my mind,
needs to hear I want you one more time.
Well the fake's eye and the cold sea,
and that island of roses is gonna come for me.
And that death cloud, and the dead sky.
Track Name: Save Me
The boy has got too many big ideas,
well as long as Georgia stays right here.
Just like everyone else,
I feel like you just wanna save me from myself.
But I don't need your help.

I just need my cold designers.
I just need my flat liners,
with their golden chains around my throat.
And you just wanna save me from myself.
But I don't need your help.

I'm on my way to what I want,
and all you have is all I've got to call my own.
But didn't they say 'you won't find God,
so come back soon my love'.
Didn't they say 'go find help,
in yourself'.
Track Name: The Face
Tell him,
I just wanna see the face.
Tell him,
I just wanna see your face.
Track Name: Oceans
I can't get to sleep
but I'll find the time to act my age.
With my kids on the street for now
well I've got wealth on the brain.

You look surprised,
didn't anybody tell you?
Well you won't go to hell,
and it's not buried beneath the waves.

The oceans I've wasted til now.
The cold light is the only one,
the only one staying around.
And I can't wait to get right past it.

It's not going to stop,
and the boy will light you up one day.
With a hand on the silver light,
I've got death on the brain.

You look surprised,
didn't anybody tell you?
Well he's passed on our name for now,
and it's just the ocean.

The moments I've wasted til now.
The cold light is the only one,
the only one staying around.
You can see that body come
and lay right in the ground.
Well you can tell my Mother
that the pale moon is here and now.
And I can't wait to get right past it.
Track Name: New Blood
Is it any wonder that phone is ringing
after all those feelings I've been having?
There's too many 2001's.
I'm that new blood,
I'm that new blooded son.

Well the resolution comes to me in my sleep,
and it'll take some time for worn sentiment to keep.
There's too many 2001's.
And I'm that new blood,
I'm that new blooded son.

Well the resolution comes to me in my sleep,
but there's only suicide when the water's deep.
Track Name: Here She Comes
I'm only stopping for the weather,
I won't be staying around.
Well I'd rather be here outside myself
than ever leave this town.

That lie of a face,
it has cold confidence now.
With time to waste,
well I'm weighing it down.
And we'll talk about it,
well that Mother never seemed right.
There's no time to wait,
but I'll wait for it.

They want it to be.
They want you to be.
Here she comes.
Am I you?

The early warning,
it wasn't how I saw it as in my mind.
