Vitamins 03:02
My earbud's broken speaker My bike's broken spoke Diminishing these vocal cords with Mom's Dad Jokes This black and decker coffee pot This overnight milk This rent's got me controlled Like these vitamin pills I'm the sum of all my body parts Every piece of swallowed gum Living in my bathrobe with my belt undone It’s like a Starkey fill Like Johnny walkin down the line  Big pink cover art But this is mine all mine all mine It's one of my few dishes It's my spaghetti sauce This is my one party trick When it's not a twist off There's a breeze that's oscillating A dimmer for the sun When you're living in your bathrobe and your belt’s undone I'm a spaced-out individual  A middle-distance criminal  I try to stay grounded It’s getting hard for me you know Reporting on the weather  In my Dollarama spiral bound You got me buying more than Benadryl I wish a cold would come around Until I can relate To Bruce’s “Born to Run” I'll be living in my bathrobe with my belt undone

The Matador 03:45
Oh my lord! Not this time Fooled a fool and you drank is wine Made him question God's design He's been misreading all His signs What's this now? There's more in store Let's buy it up so they ship some more Lick the floors, on all fours Run right at the matador Run real fast Fast as sin Burning down the house again Choking on the alphabet Talk for me 'cause I forget My first language Was it all made up By some reckless genius With too much time Knock me out Knit me socks My feet get cold when your preaching stops Idle hands can't climb on top Take my cash and buy me stock Say my name Say my name Please don't go against my grain Tell me again why I'm still sane Where's my cage to keep me tame Where's my cage? Where's my man? God is just a ceiling fan Cools me off from Satan's hand You told me this then stole my land What does this all mean? Am I too young to judge? I’m so f****** naive I just want enough Cool me off when I burn out Yea you're right I shouldn't doubt Things just fly right out my mouth Tell me twice what I'm about Oh I'm okay But I'm messed up Measure air inside my cup Make sure I don't have too much Ration out the things I love Read out loud Tell me tales Get goosebumps and teach me braille Buy the ocean set my sails Anything that cures what ails This world has its limits Or so I've been told I won't care how it's spinning Once it's in my hands

Flying 05:00
Flying! The horizon's three miles away Flying! I'm always almost there Flying! There's not much here to hold onto  Flying! Flying! I wanna spend what youth remains Flying! Just realizing salad days Flying! There's not much here to hold onto  Flying! There’s nothing here to hold onto Reading lists of things to do while alive Thirty-seven places to go before I die Write a novel out in Tangier Pay the cult so I can go clear And get famous Inhale everything within a quarter mile Eternity can last a little while If you can afford it But I'm either leaning on a reverie Or getting my fair share of sleep Someone had the gall to say It's okay to wanna be okay Flying! The horizon's three miles away Flying! I'm always almost there Flying! There's not much here to hold onto  Flying! Flying! I wanna spend what youth remains Flying! Just realizing salad days Flying! There's not much here to hold onto  Flying! There’s nothing here to hold onto Show me what's behind door number three Is it as green as green can be? Alligators I’ve been wrestling The greatest men are always those that win  And then some I was born to be born again Rock the boat and then I’ll learn to swim  That's freedom But I obey the first law of gravity Storin all my calories Drinking tea to read the leaves Recycle old epiphanies If you listen hard you hallucinate The sound of someone calling your name Flying! The horizon's three miles away Flying! I'm always almost there Flying! There's not much here to hold onto  Flying! Flying! I wanna spend what youth remains Flying! Realizing salad days Flying! Cause there's not much here to hold onto  Flying! Oh there’s not much here to hold onto I’m flying! I’m flying! I’m flying! I’m flying!

Let’s have a talk while we stare at the spots on the windshield Yes, it’s a lot, honey where do we start, out in left field? Okay I’m to blame, won’t you tell me his name is it Charlie? And is he faster than me if we count down from three with no cheating? But I know it’s better this way And I, I still have something to say I’m a boy, I’m a rat, I’m alone I’m still your man There’s these lines round your mouth that would only come out in the night time When burgundy stains were all that would remain of our dep wine Now you say we were teens but I’m somewhere between then and now Yeah, I’m lost in a dream where I say what I mean just not out loud But I know it’s better this way And I still have something to say I’m a boy, I’m a rat, I’m alone I’m still your man I’m still your man Yea I’m still your man I’m still your man 
Oh forget all that I just said I haven’t slept and these pills get to my head But I know it’s better this way And I, I still have something to say I’m a boy, I’m a rat, I’m alone I’m still your man Oh I’m still your man I’m a boy, I’m a rat, I’m alone I’m still your man

Live barely alive Time starts switching sides You know what you know Boy bruiseless stay out of the cold And all under control And alright Mining pyrite Fool’s gold Onward while the sky ignites Rolls over into the night We bask under neon lights And fade out Is there nothing in oil? Gasoline rainbow spoils Is the road not awake? Baiting with your escape Have you found a way to pretend You're still young? There are ways out Choose one Onward while the sky ignites Rolls over into the night We bask under neon lights And fade out There's something outside Don't you try and hide Burn your favorite clothes All the blankets you own Burn the door to your room And run It's amazing Outside Onward while the sky ignites Rolls over into the night We bask under neon lights And fade out

about

Vitamins is Cape Cartel's sophomore follow up to their 2018 debut, Close Talker.
A more concentrated effort than their previous work, all the songs were written within a short
period of time, with distinct sonic and emotional vision.
This EP is a hyper-representation of
Cape Cartel’s current artistic expression; playful, vulnerable, passionate, and present.
Vitamins EP is slated for release on September 20, 2019. Singles, videos and tourdates will
precede in the following months.
