Biography

Since 2005, Casual Projects have gone from strength to strength in the Australian Music industry.

Two LP’s later, the band celebrate the success of Australian and Japanese album distribution with album sales and a loyal fan base that any independent artist would be happy with.

More recently, the seven members packed their lives into the band van and migrated from their home town of Canberra to base themselves in Melbourne.

Now in 2011, both the band and fans alike are gearing up for the release of the groups very much anticipated 3rd album to be released in August....

The currently 'untitled' release is being recorded in various underground studios in Melbourne and being pieced together in what may be a step away from the bands more traditional live sounding band recordings and delving more into the art of traditional hip hop, recording live samples, cutting, pasting and layering tracks.

While the tracking of the album may be a new approach for the band, the unique sound of the soul infused party hip hoppers will ring true more than ever taking a step towards what looks to be much bigger things to come...

Lyrics

Move Along

“Move Along”
By Casual Projects
CHORUS
Move along, moving up, it's over. It's a shame it will never be the
same again.
Move along, moving out, I told her. Love doesn't overrule the
circumstance.
wooh, wooh, move along, move along.
VERSE 1
Move along and moving up
Cause I was feeling stuck
Was caught up a little bit much
Feeling loved
We had a beautiful thing
I say it proudly as I sing
But we were missing most importantly the trust
Call it as I see it and I did from the very beginning
And we were fooling around
And I was happy to be flinging
But your feelings only sit on the bench for so long
So embrace it or replace it then you’d better be gone
But I didn’t
Nah kept on playing it down
And I could see where it was heading
And I tried to get out
But we were tangled up focussed on the physical I
Wish I could say that the love was unconditional – but that’s fictional
Take a step back and look
At where your lives are at
They’re different chapters in the book
We gave and affected each other so much
It’s strange now when I see her - off limits to touch
See we planted a seed
It wasn’t ready to grow
It’s unnatural to force the process of any growth
Raise the bar
Now I’m never gonna settle for less or second guess
With a circumstance I’m truly blessed

CHORUS

VERSE 2
She's the devil
You're the advocate
She fell in love with your motorbike jacket
But couldn't hack it when you were on the road
With that dream in your eyes and that itch to go (GO!)

Didn't wanna say that I seen it coming
couldn't see you winning that marathon you're running
But finish it you did and the one thing
You can take from all of it is all that good loving.
Now it's over, gotta move on, be sober and strong
life moves forward even though you're feeling lost
To know things as they are
Is better than to believe
Things as they seem
When your hearts on your sleeve
But if you love someone
Best let them leave
If they return to you
Then it was meant to be.
VERSE 3
Well you said that the loved that you shared
Compared to that of no other
But brother its never easy breaking apart
And your intention from the start
Gave the rhythm to heart to beat unsteady
When claim you ain't ready to commit
And look past the surface of life circumstance
To what you gotta give and take from love
And if you ain't ready to face the worst of love
Then you gonna fake love or break love
So we move on to learn from
The things that twist and turn to burn
The whys and hows of a love that could of been forever
Torn apart by the circumstance that you faced together
So I'll give to you is what I get from you
A helper hand brother you know whenever I can
Stronger I am
Knowing the strength in my friends
Stronger I am.

CHORUS
BRIDGE
I need you out of my head and out of my mind
Still bringing me down with days gone by
Sick of saying good bye
Could be a curse or a blessing in disguise

I need you out of my head and still I try
But I’m still stuck standing here
Time moves on and so will I
Could be a curse or a blessing in disguise

Falling… falling… calling… calling
Thoughts’ a sure thing…. I need you out of my head and out of my mind…

“TIME�
By Casual Projects

VERSE 1

We hooked up 9 months ago.
Now she's moving to another post code.
We were strong to begin, now there's temptation,
but I'm feeling I can bare the load.
And I just thought you should know
that I'm really not that comfortable.
But I'll hold on, while I'm climbing up the wall because
I don't want to fall below
what I feel a real man could handle,
and what he should show.
And girls have approached at the after show.
I've been torn for sure, but I've been hurt before,
but I'm feeling you would hurt me most.
Though other guys gloat about how many girls they've had- I see it as
a weakness of man.
Like McCartney sang- "I just wanna hold your hand"
And I'm trying hard to keep to plan.
I will be waiting for you, so we can get to something that's timeless.

CHORUS
I will be waiting for you so we can get to something thats timeless,
timeless. 4X

VERSE 2

Feelings arise captured by eyes
I'm caught in her moment her sweet body movement
Forgetting time spent wishing for the kisses
On a misses in a past time zone
When you and I were us
But you broke that trust
And left me to fuss
With cuts only time could heal
So I'll pass the past no longer relevant
"Nothing ever came from dwelling in it"
And its evident these paths are leading us away
So I'll live for the present tense and not stray and I am
Feeling happy with this new love coming my
Its coming my way.

BRIDGE

Slipping
Through my hands
And I blame
Timeless sand
