  • "Be The Architect" - Box Set

    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

Looking For Answers
I'm longing for winter to make it cold,
Snuggle in with the one that I've had and now hold.
They're bunching me in with these tuneless fools,
I've got an anger could kill the likes of those.

Give it to me,
I know it's only the truth.
It's this time of year,
And I'm longing for proof.

These questions burn and they twitch and rage,
In spaces made by the boredom of gaining age.

And these thinking blues are a stinking crime,
There's so much more to be done with such little time.

Give it to me,
I know it's only the truth.
It's this time of year,
And I'm longing for proof.

It could be all that I now need,
A little bit of sanity,
I'm not looking for answers,
I'm just looking to play the fool.
A little bit of addiction,
It never hurt me it won't hurt you.

I'm trying to learn just to die with pride,
Like the birds and the trees and the earth in time.
But I've got this complex and it makes me fear,
That I'll die knowing nothing and feeling less.

Give it to me,
I know it's only the truth.
It's this time of year,
And I'm longing for proof.

It could be all that I now need,
A little bit of sanity,
I'm not looking for answers,
I'm just looking to play the fool.
A little bit of addiction,
It never hurt me it won't hurt you.

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...
