  • "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

"San Francisco"

All the way to San Francisco,
Without a care in the world,
Without a care.
All the way to the edge of the ocean,
And I breathe and I sigh,
With the tide.

Where did it go to?
Where did it go to?

Drive the night through a state and its city,
Every road every town,
Are all mine.
All the way to insomnia city,
With my heart in my mind,
And a smile.

Where did it go to?
Where did it go to?

We've given up on a dance in the morning,
We've given up on it's us versus them,
We've given up on all that we promised in San Francisco.

Now I'm home and I'm back in my city,
Everything has a place,
And a weight.
Now I'm home and I'm king of my castle,
But you've changed and you've grown.
Without me.

Where did it go to?
Where did it go to?

We've given up on a dance in the morning,
We've given up on it's us versus them,
We've given up on all that we promised in San Francisco.

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...
