Written and recorded in Mike's bedroom on a day he was sick and restless; this is the first official single by Sunny Acres. The Long Run features explosions of fast tempo rhythms, spacey dynamics, sections at half-time that send you drifting off into space, and an primative and energetic build up before the last chorus comes in like the big bang trying to keep up with itself.

It's universal, man.


Away with your dotted ways
that's where it starts, is where I play
away with your dotted ways

weighing on my tattered face
I will keep a hint of grace
it's finally sewn back now

If we're in pain, when we land
will it be okay to dip
our feet in the sand?

It'll be okay for us to leave
if anyone, feels the way I feel
the tide is high today.

I thought it'd be better in the long run
I thought it'd be better in the long run


released August 30, 2016
Mike Justice: composition, arrangement, reecording.

Special thanks to Jac Derner and Manuel Lopes.
The track has morphed into something slightly different
since these cool cats joined the band.
