about

'Hipnotic' is based on the oddities and similarities between the ocean and outer space. The band paints that picture thoughtfully by blending electronic samples with funk bass lines and Caribbean based rhythms, reminiscent of recordings from early No Doubt and Santigold. Hipnotic was created with a start to finish listening experience in mind, complete with interludes and abbreviated song recapitulations, but tracks are catchy and stand strong independently.

Track Name: Battleship
You got your keys, but I got your wallet,
It was kinda sunny out, just like I called it
Got your guitar, got my beach blanket
I saw your Battleship and you know I sank it

I know that there's a place way down the road
Somewhere the sun is shining on the coast

You got my keys, but I got your wallet
It was kinda cloudy out, just like you called it
Got your guitar, got my beach blanket
I saw your submarine and you know I sank it

I know that there's a place way down the road
Somewhere the sun is shining on the coast

I know that there's a place way down the road
Somewhere the sun is shining on the coast
I know that there's a place way down the road
Somewhere the sun is shining on the coast.
Track Name: Lost UR Mind
You must've lost your mind but I won't listen this time
Your tricks are up so you better get in line
And our conversations are spinnin' out re-runs
And you might win some but you lost the best one, son
And I don't belong on your back burner
'Cause when I step to a room you know I can make heads turn
You're in some kinda delirium
Like walking in a fog while you're drowning in rum
Time after time, you make me wanna run
Run to the rhythm of my big bass drum
Bum ba bum ba ba bum bum bum bum

You're with us or against us and either way I crush it
With us or against us and either way I crush it
With us or against us and either way I crush it
I crush it, we crush it, I crush it

I got the bang bang boogie keepin' things stacked
You know I bang to the boogie cause I like it like that
And I'm fine, But you done lost your mind

It would take a boom boom boomerang to bring it all back
I don't think your boomerang would make it back this time
Cause you done lost your mind

What have you taken to keep on mistaken
You got me troubled and sayin' my goodness sake'n
I've spoke of more substance after a glass of absinthe
And you talk like you're walkin' through a spinnin' labyrinth
All just because you're mind is absent
You better go and catch it or stay locked in the cement
If you don't go and catch it I hope that you'll regret it
You're mad in confusion and it's just pathetic
So let it go, don't bother lettin' me know if you get it
Yeah if you ever get it

Cause you're with us or against us and either way I crush it
With us or against us and either way I crush it
With us or against us and either way I crush it
I crush it, we crush it, I up and crush it

I got the bang bang boogie keepin' things stacked
I bang to the boogie cause I like it like that
And I'm fine, But you done lost your mind

It would take a boom boom boomerang to bring it all back
I don't think your boomerang would make it back this time
Cause you done lost your mind

We used to be so good, so good together
We used to be so good, so good together
We used to be so good, so good together
We used to be so good, so good together

You're with us or against us and either way I crush it
With us or against us and either way I crush it
With us or against us and either way I crush it
You crush it, I crush it, I up and crush it

I got the bang bang boogie keepin' things stacked
I bang to the boogie cause I like it like that
And I'm fine, But you done lost your mind

It would take a boom boom boomerang to bring it all back
I don't think your boomerang would make it back this time
Cause you done lost your mind

Yeah I got the bang bang boogie keepin' things stacked
I bang to the boogie cause I like it like that
And I'm fine, But you done lost your mind

It would take a boom boom boomerang to bring it all back
I don't think your boomerang would make it back this time
Cause you done lost your mind
Yeah this time cause you done lost your mind
Yeah this time cause you done lost your mind.
Track Name: Sun Goddess
Our Sun Goddess she has brought us
Together so we share this furnace of a bodice
Hail the hottest and the modest
We live in the land of the promised
Our Sun Goddess she has brought us
Together so we share this furnace of a bodice
Hail the hottest and the modest
We live in the land of the promised

Our Sun Goddess she has taught us
How to live in the arms of the broadest
Hail the flawless and the honest
We live in the land of the hottest
Higher Higher

Can you take me higher
Ride in your chariots of fire
Can you take me higher
Ride in your chariots of fire
Higher Higher

With the best and brightest sundress
And flames for the finest headdress
Beware of her burning stare
Sol Invictus, are you with us?
With the best and brightest sundress
And flames for the finest headdress
Beware of her burning stare
Sol Invictus, are you with us?

Open arms of beaming sunrays
And dressed for the finest Sunday
In or out, either way
So you can do what you want and say what you wanna say, sire
Say, Sire

Can you take me higher
Ride in your chariots of fire
Can you take me higher
Ride in your chariots of fire
Higher Higher

Can you take me higher
Ride in your chariots of fire
Can you take me higher
Ride in your chariots of fire
Higher Higher
Higher Higher.
Track Name: Dead Roses
You broke a promise that you need to keep
now you regret it
and theres a few words that never need to be spoke
and you said it

You got me standing on the fire escape with nothing on
but a dumb look on my face
and I can get all my records back, but you're losing something
that you can't replace

Chorus-
Now the smell of dead roses is filling up the room in your apartment
I been wandering round the city, no direction, just wondering where my heart went

It used to be so easy just to take you
to a movie or the club
but at the end of every night you would never
do me right or show me love

you say your friends keep telling you this and that about me
but it ain't true
if there is one thing I've learned it's that
I've got to keep my distance from you

Chorus

Now the summer was sweet but it didn't last long
and I'm back out in the cold, where I don't belong
I walked the wire, and I fell for you
without a net or the slightest clue
I know I'm reckless, I know I'm rude
I know I'm helpless, but that's old news
and now there ain't no getting through to you

Some time has passed and I'm carrying on
still trying to shatter the illusions of the same old song
so if you see me in the streets pretend I don't exist
because there ain't a single thing about you I miss

Chorus
Track Name: Tip Toe
Out late once again picking up girlfriends
They tryin' to make amends
For tens of offenses from last weekend
Like commencing to climb the fencing of private residence
And just tryin' to get up top
To be closer to the stars
Against the law but not a crime
Stick together and we'd be feelin' fine
Own the night just passing time
Wonderin' how we made this
Consequence free paradise,

So I tip toe when I come home
Talk low and always speakin' slow
We were made for layin' low
Til the sun rises in the back window
And I know

Up late at your place
Tryin to hide my face
But you're up with the sun rise
Doin' it like this almost every time
Contemplating the undertaking
Quickly fading sands of time
And watching it shift from side to side
Our feet were strapped in Birkenstocks
Short shorts and custom tops
Iron on letters makin' dialogues
Making measures and taking treasures
Altogether of where we ride tonight
Without a casualty in sight,

So I tip toe when I come home
Talk low and always speakin' slow
We were made for layin' low
Til the sun rises in the back window
And I know

And I know
And I know
And I know
And I know.
Track Name: Lovely Interlude
Lovely tell me what do you see
Lovely everything I see is lovely
How could you be lonely
You're never without me.
Track Name: Felicity
I saw your cadillac
So did Felicity
But there was somethin' in the backseat
What could it be?
You had the windows down
Her hair was blowin' 'round
And everybody hit the ground

Oh London Town
Now she's sitting up above
Looking down
And she's singing
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na

I saw your face last night
Up on my TV screen
It was somethin' from a bad dream
It was a drive by
And she was waving hi
And everybody hit the ground

Oh London Town
And now she's sitting up above
Looking down
And she's singing
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na

When you pull up pull up
I don't know who called your bluff
And when she pull up pull up
I don't know who called your bluff
I don't know who called your bluff
When you pull up pull up
I don't know who called your bluff
And when she pull up pull up
I don't know who called your bluff
I don't know who called your bluff

I saw your cadillac
So did Felicity
But there was somethin' in the backseat
What could it be?
You had the windows down
Her hair was blowin' 'round
And everybody hit the ground

Oh London Town
And now she's sitting up above
Looking down
And she's singing
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na...
Track Name: So Hard
She wakes up with her head up in the clouds
Wouldnt think of bringing it back down
I guess listening is not a thing for everyone
Not surprised to find you occupied when things start to come undone

It must be So hard, Doing what you do, It must be So hard
It must be So hard, Doing what you do, It must be So hard

A nickname like mismanage could only be
A fitting title dedicated to you from me
Could you think things through and think of anyone
Other than the petty plans that you command just for fun

It must be So hard, Doing what you do, It must be So hard
It must be So hard, Doing what you do, It must be So hard

A monkey man could do the jobs you find so hard to complete, it doesn't take but little smarts
And if you listened to the things I had to say
Life would be much easier every single day

It must be So hard, Doing what you do, It must be So hard
Your life, It must be So hard, Doing what you do, It must be So hard
Track Name: Hole in Heart
Don't do drugs, don't do love
No high 5's and I hate hugs
No tattoos and no piereced ears
Needles just increase my fears

Don't do drives, don't do walks
Hate to text and no time for talks
No giant steps, never run
Remember what we would do for fun?

You left a hole in heart
I lose control and fall apart
And fall a-
All fall down, and fall apart

Rooms a mess I'm always late
When its cold I break my dates
Prescriptions on the windowsill
Never get stuck with the bill

Out to bars, never drink
Waters fine from out the sink
Don't stay long, don't stay up late
Don't tell me 'no' I don't do debates

You left a hole in my heart
I lose control and fall apart
And fall a-
All fall down, and fall a-
All fall down, and fall apart

You left a hole in my heart
I lose control and fall apart
You left a hole in my heart
I lose control and fall apart
And fall a-
All fall down, and fall a-
All fall down, and fall a-
All fall down and fall apart.
Track Name: Quantimplative Beat
Shake it for ya Break it for ya, rock it and drop
From the lips of the hips and you just don't stop
Its a funky kinda pop and its called the hip drop
You turn the bolt with a jolt, they'll just be poppin' the lock
You'll make a joker of your broker he'll be shocked by our stock
Youl'll make a joker of your broker he'll be shocked by our stock

This is a Quantimplative Beat
You hear when walking down the street
This is a time to sing a long
Shake it in boxer, briefs, or thongs
Singin' Ahhhh

(A Quantimplative, a Quantimplative Beat
A Quantimplative, a Quantimplative Beat)

Shake your tail side to side like an alligator
Eyes wide and white lies she says 'I'll catch you later'
She grabs her boots, bag and boys like a synchopator
A great dates always late so don't be a hater
So move it in the back of your citizen jeans
Can you feel it, I can feel if when your band starts to scream
And say Ahhhhhh

This is a Quantimplative Beat
You hear when walking down the street
Singin' this is a time to sing a long
Shake it in boxer, briefs, or thongs
Singin' Ahhhh
