Aquos_Fox This album is amazing. It was very hard to choose my favorite track, but i choose Bigger because I love the groove and the lyrics. I really like A Fantasy and All Arise too. The vinyl record sounds great on my turntable and the artwork is beautiful. I can't wait for the next album ! Favorite track: Bigger.

danielpuia I started listening to Fox & Peppers shortly after I went to Brasil FurFest 2019. I fell in love with their music as I was overwhelmed with emotion after going to my very first furcon. Their songs spoke to me in a personal level, and I'm very grateful! Favorite track: Bigger.

Even though, I’ll forget myself You don’t know, I’ll explain myself again seeing those who protect themselves thinking “no”, we’ll inject ourselves again Bridge: If it all turns out right we’ll find that we’ve left it better whatever we’ve left can make itself right again Leave no trace is our directive but who could turn away from this and be gone Chorus: we’re a long way from home and we got so far to go we boldly went this way cause we wanted to know are we all alone? Even though, I’ll forget myself I don’t know what I’ve said before Have we done all that we can do have you touched somebody’s heart Bridge x3 (okay it’s all right, It’s all right. all ready’s all right’s all ready to go)

When all you hear are rumours when all you see are lies when you believe in something stand firm don't compromise when hanging in the middle don't give it up don't let it go no feels like hanging at the end Don't turn away - take it slow You gotta stay as you are... Stay as you are You gotta stay as you are Stay as you are Is it something I can measure Something I can feel Do you hide away whenever they reach for something real You gotta stay as you are... Repeat a buncha times.

Bigger 04:34
Only 5 foot 9. Practically invisible When will be my time? Tell me when can I step into some bigger shoes? I’m sick of losing inches when I should be gaining feet I can’t see over the fence yet. Can’t claim a larger seat They got me wantin’ power, lovers, money, can’t I be bigger? Chorus: Bigger house, bigger car, bigger telephone Bigger pants, bigger lawn, but I’m on my own Bigger parties bigger friends the more that you get known All of us want to get a little bigger Bigger names, bigger wallets bigger piano keys Bigger amps, bigger view counts, bigger screen TVs Bigger fights, bigger shade from all the wanna-be’s All of us want to get a little bigger Now I’m 7’ 5” gettin looks whenever I show up On the borderline Gearing up to reach, a little higher Suddenly they can hear me, don’t have to scream and shout I’m steppin’ over road-blocks, no they can’t keep me out Made some magic, seems I’m blowin’ up all over town Gettin, bigger Chorus Stand 4 meters high, scrape my head on the beams most nights I don’t mean to whine, but maybe this has gotten out of hand. I can’t stand up in here! Outgrew my old apartment, did I outgrow my friends? Seems I don’t fit most venues, Oh how could I pretend I’m not too big to know you when all the faces start to blend I don’t need to get any bigger Chorus: Bigger debt, bigger pressure, bigger bills to pay Bigger pieces of yourself you have to give away Bigger distance ‘tween your needs and wants are commonplace Still you think you you gotta get a little bigger Repeat last half of chorus
5.
Up to me, here I am, why the hesitation starts to feel like they don’t want to understand I’ve been open like a book, but no one’s reading me quite right on a treadmill getting nowhere on my own, I can’t tell if I’m getting higher am I rising above or digging deeper still getting harder to decide how to spend my dwindling time will clip my wings or help me learn to fly so spread thy wings fly above them all you’re heaven-touched, you’re an angel to see the world and how small they are go spread thy wings, never fall

Sun is blinding as he stumbles to the door left behind by eyes that see enough to know foreign hands reach out and grant a revelation little circles made of wire hanging right before your eyes All this searching seems much simpler than before were you dreaming; where did all this color come from? those around don’t understand all this elation what’s this thing that you are wearing, can you tell me what it does? Chorus: Hold it up, and see it right this curing glass will bring you sight maybe now you’ll finally take your place ooh, I made you look and I won’t think twice watch you earn everything you got and yet still you reach won’t make you shine but it made you look Seems too quiet, have they all just up and left quick as they had come they’re gone never had a chance to show his appreciation finding just a piece of fabric guess he’ll have to try it on Chorus x2

Like everyone else When I was younger I would need 10 sugars tryna get my coffee down. Go to sleep at half past 3 when I could pass out. 10 years workin at that dream, Stop wanting as much of the sugar and cream. The bitterness dulls the edge and you can get to sleep by 10. Chorus: We all, keep sayin that we won't get caught like everyone else (like everyone else) We all, keep sayin that we won't get old like everyone else (like everyone else) Snowflakes tend to melt. Your cracks, they tend to swell. Before too long in a mirror you see everyone else. I used to laugh when my old man, couldn't race me up a hill Or when my mother would tell me to take it slow Now I'm dreamin of a made up past Wishin that time didn't kill so fast Sarcastically askin where have all the soldiers gone. Chorus 2: They all, keep sayin that we won't get caught like everyone else (like everyone else) They all, keep sayin that it won't get old like everyone else (like everyone else) Make them "great" again And we'll forget it's all pretend. And before too long we believe that it’s everyone else. Bridge: I was made to believe we're all uniquely human I'm finding out exactly what that means There is no other being with such capacity for compassion. Or such capacity for doing harm. When I was younger I believed that we were all of equal worth. And in the end we'd all be fine if we did what's right. That the deck's not stacked and we could be whatever we want in the land of the free but I See things every day that I just can't accept. Chorus 3 And I'll keep saying that I'll never end up like everyone else (like everyone else) And I'll keep sayin that I'll never give up like everyone else (like everyone else) Fear won't ever go So let everybody know That you won't keep quiet and you won't sit down That we're all from somewhere but we're from here now That you don't need to step on me to feel great That you got enough love to take on the hate That you'll be the change that you want to see That I'll look out for you and you'll look out for me That we won’t give up and will not be moved we've taken on worse and we don't plan to lose Oh how great the sorrow. Oh how great the pain. When I wake up tomorrow. I will go to work again. I will go to work again. I will go to work again.

Sittin’ around, wanna figure it out, a way to justify my second chances Mind wanders far but it keeps landing on you who’s left to blame this time, was I a victim of my circumstances? No, I held the smoking gun but not the bullet that it threw Painted a picture, while I was trying to find another piece of gold I never figured out, that the villain was me and now you’re leaving I’m not giving up, I’m not giving in not letting the dark be the reason, I give myself for the kind of person, that I have been I can’t change for you, so I’ll change for me I’ll be alone, for now, for then Words fly like a burning knife into the person who’s my only anchor It wasn’t too much weight but rather the rigidness of my stubborn mind and I can’t stop thinking about it regret flows in too late to prevent the things that I said, the things that I meant at the time, but not once I played the tape back. Painted a picture, of what I had in my mind another hand to hold I didn’t like what I saw, who I turned out to be so now I’ll leave it.

A Fantasy 03:51
Here in the dream we’ve awoken Where despite my mind’s health I am strong I can fight for what’s right, in a basement tonight And I’ll feel like myself all along Won’t erase imperfections See our mage? She gets by with one hand Now open and read what our party will meet Be it water or blizzard or sand Hunting, stealing, casting, healing In this forgotten age 1 is strong but 4 are stronger Who can stand in our way? All of this time is not wasted, Living stories born of our own minds May laugh and may weep till the tale be complete Then it’s back to ourselves for a while. Tell you I’m right here in a Fantasy, and I belong When you enter this land, I’m in control I dictate every army, every foe Go ahead, take your chances, see what you roll Are you still alive? *whispered?* In the face of a thousand legions, no You won’t assuage me, see where I go Crossing the wildest river flow It’s the thing that unites us, this fantasy! I put on my robe and wizard hat

All Arise 04:51
Fill my cup, may it overflow I will drink from the counter, the floor or wherever it goes make your choice, for whatever you pour gratefully I’ll consume before I leave this room yeah this void I’ll restore Load me up with vitriol load me up with your pain take and I’ll spin it, your penance or sin it will quickly return to this place quickly return to this place All arise. Yeah you get what you give Cling to each other remember how hard it is just to live All arise, yeah you get who you take ooh lord I’m so over this. I’m so over this Let it out, oh wherever you can there’s a shining inside so bright they have to understand raise your glass, so new people can fill with what inhabits their heart that’s what they can impart and they will Load me up with kindness load me up with your grace take and return with whatever you’ve learned and we’ll quickly return to this place quickly return to this place Chorus x2 Pick me up and I will rise tear me down and I will fall sticks and stones may break my bones but my words are all that define me
11.
Let Me In 03:59
Look around, they're waiting Inner will is fading Giving in seems like a wish. Not as cold. Feel around for ages The haze it comes in stages First a touch then overwhelmed. It only takes a moment. You're sliding down and know that Letting go won't hurt a bit. You're alone. Open up your throat and I can peek inside past it all Chorus: Let me in, and I'll dissolve Though the planets still revolve I am one with everything Do I want to make it out Pressing in from all around Warm me, let me in. Solo You could do it. Strain your ears for answers. You could do it. Ya said you like romancers You could do it. Simple as a flash of the mandible. You could do it. You're walking down a path. You can do it. And deep inside you know You can do it. That you won't even flinch.

AA Battery 03:39
AA Battery Controlled Telescopic Knife Walking back from my place, she seemed happy. Nothing in the wind to keep me down! Got a package in the mail... Could it be my holy grail?
a poking implement to rule all the tools with inferior fuels

“What’s that you got there in your pocket?”
she asked as we walked into the mall. Eyes widen as I show the seventeen-inch dynamo that shouts out when I flip the switch and keeps growing and growing and growing I said, “Hey, why is everybody
runnin’ for their life?” It’s just my AA Battery Controlled Telescopic Knife 

My grandfather turns to me and says, “Let’s go down in metaphoric history.” because
I never had a grandfather.
But if I did, I’m sure that he’d be Proud of a loud-browed son-of-a-cow who can wield a blade the way I do Chorus Is there an issue bring weapons into this particular bank? I was escorted out and there’s only one thing to thank, and it’s my AA Battery Controlled Telescopic Knife There is an apple farmer lifting all the Pilgrims from their huts to find the weather only half as satisfying as before. And as an answer, he said,” Run to me, my daughters, have a crispish red delicious, the least truthful of the apples.” Say it again and come to me Say it again, I’m not myself
I’m not myself Chorus

about

We did not make this album alone. The cover says “Foxes and Peppers” but to suggest that only two people are responsible for this one would be dishonest. The songs on this album couldn’t exist the way they do without our musician friends, management, engineers, artists, designers, manufacturers, or the hundreds of people who bought the album before a single note had been recorded. Support from our families, friends, and neighbors made this album. Support from a loving community made this album. Thank you for having faith in us. We hope you like the music.

Special Thanks:
Pepper would like to thank - Marsha, Frank, and Adam Clark, John “Mohr” Emery, Dixie, the Armour family. Dave “Rooth”, Skyler Ringtail, Pandez, Thabo, Brexton, and everyone that’s commissioned him. Alkali Bismuth, Xander, Draggor, and everyone at the Dragget Show that helped put on the Kickstarter kickoff stream. Cosmo Shep, WolfJester, Urbis, Skrugg, Diesel Husky, and the rest of the AZ crew for your friendship and encouragement. Everyone who’s ever given him a ride or a place to stay, helped haul gear, booked him when no one else would, watched the merch table, or made coffee to share. Thank you.

Fox Amoore would like to thank - Parents. Lets get that out the way right now. There's no way I could be doing the things I do without the unconditional support, love and encouragement that they gave me and still give me to this day. Thanks Iain and Marian. Pepper, you're a clown, a brother and one of the most talented musical poets I've ever heard and met. Thank you for all the laughs, adventures and most importantly music. Here's to so much more of it to come. Charlotte, my rock and the one person that puts up with my... everything. Your energy and love makes me feel like the luckiest guy on the planet. My list of thanks can go on forever. Thank you especially to each and every listener and funder of this project, again I wouldn't be doing this without your love, support and friendship.

It is mine and Pepper's pleasure to introduce you to Spread Thy Wings.
