    A beautiful Box Set - Including...
    - Be The Architect live CD recorded on the night.
    - Hope and Social début album Architect of This Church
    - Our second album "April" on CD
    - Our third studio album "Sleep Sound" on CD
    - our debut EP
    - our acoustic reworkings album, "Cotton Wool and Knotted Wood" on CD
    - 80-page Be the Architect hardback book - We asked all who came to the Be The Architect show to help us record the evening. We asked them to write a wish/poem/prayer/hope and submit it to us for inclusion in the Be The Architect box set. The result is an incredible 80 page insight into people's lives in 2009. It's a beautiful and inspiring artifact.
    - Prayer Song (Bonus Track) - Excerpts of people's "prayers" were made into a new work by Hope and Social. This is included in the download, i.e. not on the physical CD.
    ...all in a beautiful leatherette (yes, leatherette) box with silver H&S logo. Wow.

    Also includes immediate download of the album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. ;)

lyrics

"Drink the Drink"

Here we are we're never moving far.
Got to get me a different clothes to wear,
Got to get me a drink to drink,
Got to get me a different point of view.

Apathy you're paralyzing me,
Got to get me a different place to be,
Got to get me a book to read,
Got to get me a different point of view.

You don't believe in all you see you say you want to be at home.
You don't believe in all you see you say you want to be at home.

Game show buzz does what the morphine should.
Got to get me a different clothes to wear,
Got to get me a drink to drink,
Got to get me a different point of view.

So cuddle me, I fear relentlessly.
Got to get me a different clothes to wear,
Got to get me a drink to drink,
Got to get me a different point of view.
Got to get me a different book to read,
Got to get me a different place to be,
Got to get me a different point of view.

You don't believe in all you see you say you want to be alone.
You don't believe in all you see you say you want to be alone.

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
