about

In Kindness or Injury is either a further step away from their earlier acoustic ‘folk’ sound or simply a return to Rosy Tin Teacaddy’s weird and wonderful origins. This short-format ep is an atmospheric train trip from the volcanic plateau via Paekakariki to an imagined high-country station in a forgotten part of NZ’s Southland region. Passing through conflicts of longing, the despair of defence and NZ’s worst rail disaster, RTT continue to revel in the macabre and find the beauty in catastrophe. In Kindness or Injury reads like a topographical map; enough detail to find your way but every chance that you might get lost.

Track Name: All In Good Time
Don't take it seriously
It's just a game, the same old same
You're hustling me, hustling me

Ace of hearts up your sleeve

Don't know what's getting us through
No second best close to my chest
I'm shuffling you, shuffling you

Diamonds in my hands

All in good time
There's no bluffing it
Leave behind
We'll make nothing of it
- All in good time

Sing to me curiously
A cheap refrain, again, again
You're puzzling me, puzzling me

Ace of hearts up your sleeve

Roll with the punches and then
take it on the chin, it's all win win
I'm running with you, running with you

Diamonds in our hands

Ch
Diamonds in our hands
Track Name: Station Of Hearts
Take off your coat of arms
Hang it on a hook inside the door
Circus of lucky charms
Wearing a face that I've seen before
Eleanor

I'm no great believer
In promises forgotten
Ringing a bell in the station of hearts
It's like this freight train ain't stoppin'
This freight train ain't stoppin'

No sign of smoke I'll be gone
In a cloud of confetti dry your eyes
Awkward with great aplomb
I'm growing restless from all your lies
Valentine

Ch

I'm no great believer
Track Name: Fortress
Are you aboard the Conflict?
Navigating me
Nobody doubts your ownership
Calibrate the weaponry

Move away from me
Move away from me
In kindness or injury
Sending semaphore
In a time of war
Don't you fall into hands
of the enemy

Batten down the hatches
Gale force south easterly
Tinder dry our matches
Strike a flame to kerosene

Move away from me
Move away from me
In kindness or injury
Sending semaphore
In a time of war
Don't you fall into hands
of the enemy

In kindness or injury
Move away from me
In kindness or injury
Track Name: The Lucky Ones
I am travelling
40 miles an hour, slow down, slow down
Brakes are failing me
200 yards out, river brown, river brown
I'm bearing gifts for you
Ribbons red mistle-toe, mistle-toe

We are the lucky ones

A moment of weightlessness
800 tonne of steel fall down, fall down
Your heart is in your mouth
luggage lost, leather seats, hold on, hold on
Broke at the coupling
On your cheek Indigo, indigo

I am the man with the torch light
I am the woman in mud and pearls
I am the priest reading last rites
I am a girl in the snow globe world
Track Name: Overland
Searching for line of sight
Latitude, longitude
Reading coordinates
Parallel point of view

Mapping a way to you is overland
Our place of rendezvous, we understand
I'm shifting contours by some degree

I can remember your geography

Pressure of isobars
Relative humidity
We'll never be too far
In times of clemency

Mapping a way to you is overland
Our place of rendezvous, we understand
I'm shifting contours by some degree

I can remember your geography
