about

These are the 'leftovers' - six tracks recorded during the HYPER TROPHY sessions in 2014. When we knew they weren't going to make the final cut - for being too long, too weird and/or a retread of something already on the record - we set them aside to finish in August 2015. Since they were already odd, and together they were ill-formed for an album, we decided to have some fun with the production. We hope you enjoy!

Track Name: SUSIE!
Susie!
Ain’t you got no sense or nothing?
How long you think we gonna keep this sorta
Thing you done a quiet affair?

Susie!
All that sugar - ain’t that something?
I wanna trust you when you tell me but I’m
Tryinta keep you safe from their hands

And you say: AAHHHHHHHH

Susie!
I tell you what, it ain’t for nothing
You never meant to hurt nobody only
Folks are kinda curious rare

And you say: AAHHHHHHHH

You’re my only family – so help me keep you safe from their hands
Susan understand what they would do because they don’t understand

Susie!
Ain’t you got no faith in nothing?
Don’t you see the tricks I pull to keep
The people we love safe from your hands?

Susie:
Did you wanna tell me something?
About the dreams you’re seeing every night
Where something’s hiding, dark inside
The flower burning red and bright
If only you return the light and

AHHHHHHHHHH

Track Name: Trying
Tell me just how long I wait; tell me just how long I wait; I keep trying, trying
Tell me just how long I wait; tell me just how long I wait
I keep trying, trying, trying, trying.

I am the missile there’s no lid to keep my heaven hidden
Strike and defy – unless you wanna wait
I spit and whistle like a kettle cooking metal in it
Light and set fire, unless you wanna-
Ignite to get right, unless you wanna-
Tonight while it’s wild, unless you wanna wait

They see a riddle wantsta figure out and settle down - you
Fight the design – unless you wanna wait
Well here’s the pistol with a wiggle hide your children from it
Light and set fire, unless you wanna-
Ignite to get right, unless you wanna-
Tonight while it’s wild, unless you wanna wait

Set the weight down
I send the same sound
Oh what a weight
Oh share the weight round x2

Tell me just how long I wait; tell me just how long I wait; I keep trying, trying
Tell me just how long I wait; tell me just how long I wait
I keep trying, trying, trying, trying.

They think a cripple if a thing don’t match the mirror image:
“Try and refine”
Don’t start a ripple, detonate what’s in the middle, kindle
Light and set fire, unless you wanna-
Ignite to get right, unless you wanna-
Tonight while it’s wild, unless you wanna -
Get bright and incite, unless you wanna -
Alight and set fire, unless you wanna wait

Set the weight down
I send the same sound
Oh what a weight
Oh share the weight round x2

Oh what a weight - Oh set the weight down
Track Name: Grasp MTs
How they gonna tell you to wait?
How they gonna tell you to wait, oh,
How they gonna tell you to wait?

To grasp mountains
To stand up
To stop counting
To look up, up

How you gonna tell me to wait, oh,
How you gonna tell me to wait??
How you gonna tell me to wait, so,
How you gonna tell me to wait??

I grasp mountains

Teeth crowning

You grasp mountains!
You stand up, up

We ain’t sovereign
We just part
You grasp mountains!
You stand up, up
I grasp mountains

Teeth crowning
We ground up
To grasp Mountains!
To stand up, up - You stand up, up
Track Name: Hey Hey
It’s such a strange and lovely treasure
It’s such an honor that my love gave
I was a dancer in his pleasure
I was a weapon in the white wave
There was a light in the split of the eye
That I split there was no light
Now I’m his dancer in the red slip
Now I’m his hunter and a hey hey-

HEY HEY HEY HEY
Don’t want to talk about it
Don’t wanna talk about it HEY HEY
HEY HEY HEY HEY
Don’t want to talk about it
Don’t wanna talk about it HEY HEY

I’ll even tell you, though my head hurts
And you can tell me how the sky changed
It’s such a clear and lovely weather
It’s such a hot and funny mem’ry
There was a light in the split of the eye
That I split there was no light
I wanna sing it to my sweet love
I wanna tell him but I hey hey-

HEY HEY HEY HEY
Don’t want to talk about it
Don’t wanna talk about it HEY HEY
HEY HEY HEY HEY
Don’t want to talk about it
Don’t wanna talk about it HEY HEY

HEY HEY HEY HEY
Don’t want to talk about it
Don’t wanna talk about it HEY HEY

Don’t wanna talk about it HEY HEY
Track Name: No Song
The hero others saw is gone
Silence kills the Siren’s song
Oo-oo. Ahuh-oh. Oo-oo. Ahuh-oh.

Holding breath in sudden doubt:
We all go in but who comes out?
Oo-oo. Ahuh-oh. Oo-oo. Ahuh-oh. Oh.

The night is open
Her face a dark knife
Her teeth are broken
Her smile split wide
Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

And in decay we hear his song
No faith or trust in men or Gods
Oo-oo. Ahuh-oh. Oo-oo. Ahuh-oh. Oh.

The night is open
Her face a dark knife
Her teeth are broken
Her smile split wide
Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

No light. No song. No harm.
No light. No song. No one.

The night is open
Her face a dark knife
Her teeth are broken
Her smile split wide
Why are you frozen?
Make sure you get (it) right
Your teeth are broken
Your face is split wide
Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Track Name: Stories
Soft as breathing; hear it all the time -
Story’s ending, swears the other side.
Says that when the work is done
You go back where you started from
And there’s someone always watching…

Tell my story any other time:
Would you keep it? Know your other side?
There are some who beat the drum and swear the lines can't be undone
And they want you to believe there is but one historian
They promise you a page, and beg you pass the story on
That there's someone always watching you

Soft as breathing, best friend knows my mind
Unconvinced in all but what we find
And when our time has run, I'll know the worth is what's been done
And mine will be the hands that play the strings that tell your song
And yours will be the words that sing of me and I'll respond
Because there's someone always watching you

Can I write the story of the thing I want to be?
Can I wrap it up in letters; will you read it back to me?
And if there is ink in living, I will fight to make it so
That - either side of this decision - I will be there when you go
If you will be there when I go

If you tell it yourself would you know it was true?
The word can’t see the hand; it just knows that it moves.
I carry you carry me - Pair of hands (parenthetically)
Gathering words and listening close
Living forever on more than your own
I carry you carry me - And not so glaringly clerically, a tale accrued

Wherever I may go, however I may end
Let it be, let it be with the comfort of my friend
Wherever I may go, whatever I may do
Let it be, let it be in the presence, dear, of you

And I will live the story of the beauty you have been
And I will wrap it up in letters and I will sing you til the end
And if there is ink in living, I will fight to make it so
That - either side of this decision - I will be there when you go
Because you’ll be there when I go
