about

"Restitution" is a physical re-release of two songs from Oh! Nullah's 2015 album "Jaded Summer", which were only ever released digitally.

//In Ben's own words//

“Jaded Summer” is a song I wrote for a friend whose mother passed away, and “Last of My Mistakes” is about accepting that no one is ever immune to failure or disappointment.

“Restitution” is the restoration of something lost to its original owner and a concept that these two songs attempt to grasp and convey.

//Note//

Both songs can be found on Oh! Nullah's bandcamp, under the album "Jaded Summer", which is available on pay-as-you-want basis.

So please do not pre-order this digitally.

Track Name: Last of My Mistakes
They saw the sign
Kept it to their hearts
The silver line, the chosen words
In the clouds all thoughts deferred
We compromise
Might as well accept the standard lines
The social ties, analysed and misaligned

Take my hand and we’ll see
What things will lie ahead
I doubt we’ll settle there
You’ll never go far with me
I don’t want to clip your wings
My burden will hold you back

The sound it makes
The fluttering of past mistakes
Now they’re gone

Surely these things would destroy
A compassionate heart
Never thought I’d go the distance
Make a mistake and renounce that
Resounding false start
Never thought I’d lose persistence

Hoping I won’t lose my way
Never going to count the cost
Never know the time it’d take
To make amends for things I’d lost
The last of my mistakes will never part

Oh happy heart, when you fall down
Is something wrong, did I hurt you?
Or did life just pass you through?
Let’s start again
Had we sung along until the end
The verse won’t show
How the story had been untold
Track Name: Jaded Summer
Tired eyes won’t rest inside this broken logic
Can we carry the weight of time
Back from our failures?
The season’s changing
Will we feel fine without retaining
The things we’ve lost, those dear to our lives
The moments passing?

This summer is changing our lives
Never knew what winter had lost
Springtime has found us a dream
Autumn air extending the cost

Jaded summer can’t erase
All retired, sober pain
Jaded summer won’t forget to tell us

Our minds rely on highs (So hesitant inside)
That will shape our lives (To solitude confide)
Inconsistent thoughts (No one really knows)
Won’t join the dots

Take the path that works (That no one travels on)
Mocked, unseen, absurd (You’re going the wrong way)
Where the path shall end (Time might find a friend)
No one knows when

The time will pass
It’s temporary

Surely sadness won’t change our lives
It’s only emotion
But what I’ve thought would turn out right
Was something different
The world goes on without my thoughts
The same things happening
Finding meaning to call my own
But would it find me?
