Go progress chrome They paint the moon today Some brand new future color Go progress chrome I aim to shoot the scaffolds I like it, how it's always been Go progress chrome Nocturnal glare confusion The night owl and I Will hunt the contractor Go progress chrome I won't be at your unveiling I like it, how it's always been Oh, how it's always been

These are the lyrics we used, pretty sure they're not fully accurate though! :) Love, love is a verb Love is a doing word Fearless on my breath Gentle impulsion Shakes me, makes me lighter Fearless on my breath Teardrop on the fire Fearless on my breath Night, night after day Black flowers blossom Fearless on my breath Black flowers blossom Fearless on my breath Teardrop on the fire Fearless on my... Water is my eye Most faithful mirror Fearless on my breath Teardrop on the fire Of a confession Fearless on my breath Most faithful mirror Fearless on my breath Teardrop on the fire Fearless on my breath You're stumbling down You're stumbling down

Stay out super late tonight picking apples, making pies Put a little something in our lemonade and take it with us We're half awake in a fake empire We're half awake in a fake empire Tiptoe through our shiny city with our diamond slippers on Do our gay ballet on ice, bluebirds on our shoulders We're half awake in a fake empire We're half awake in a fake empire Turn the light out say goodnight, no thinking for a little while Let's not try to figure out everything at once It's hard to keep track of you falling through the sky We're half awake in a fake empire We're half awake in a fake empire

Sweetness, You can come home with me Against all hope and sense of decency Sweetness, take off that dress for me Against all hope and sense of dignity And world spins round and I don't care any more Oh sweetness, you can fall in love with me Against all hope and sense of dignity My sweetness, you can come be by my side Against all hope and sense of human pride And world spins round and I don't care any more And world spins round and I don't care any more

You were a child, crawlin' on your knees toward it. Makin' mama so proud, but your voice was too loud. We like to watch you laughing. You pick the insects off plants. No time to think of consequences. Control yourself. Take only what you need from it. A family of trees wanted, To be haunted. Control yourself. Take only what you need from it. A family of trees wanted, To be haunted. The water is warm, but it's sending me shivers. A baby is born, crying out for attention. Memories fade, like looking through a fogged mirror Decision to decisions are made and not bought But I thought, this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not. Control yourself. Take only what you need from it. A family of trees wanted, To be haunted. Control yourself. Take only what you need from it. A family of trees wanted, To be haunted.

Drifting in and out You see what road you're on It came rolling down your cheek You say just what you mean And in between it's never as it seems Help me to name it Help me to name it If you built yourself a myth You'd know just what to give What comes after this Momentary bliss, the consequence Of what you do to me Help me to name it Help me to name it Found yourself in a new direction Arrows falling from the sun Canyon calling Would they come to greet you Let you know you're not the only one Can't keep hanging on to what is dead and gone If you build yourself a myth You'd know just what to give Materialize Or let the ashes fly Help me to name it Help me to name it

I still have a flame gun For the cute, cute, cute ones And I saw your hand With a loose grip On a tight ship I still have a flame gun For the cute ones To burn out all your tricks And I saw your hand With a loose grip On a very tight ship And I know In the cold light There's a very big man There's a very big man Leading us into Temptation Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me And he's related to you He's related to you He is waiting to meet you He's related to you He's related to you He is dying to meet you Backhand, role reversal Where is someone? Backhand, reversible roles I know there's someone I still have a flame gun For the cute ones To burn out all your tricks And I saw your hand With a loose grip On such a tight ship And I know in the cold light There's a very big man Leading us into Temptation Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me And he's related to you He's related to you He is waiting to meet you He's related to you He's related to you He is dying to meet you He's related to you He's related to you He's related to you He's nude as the news, nude as the news Nude as the news, nude as the news All over, all over, all over, all over, all over, all over, all over You

Such a shame to believe in escape 'A life on every face', but that's a change Until I'm finally left with an '8' Tell me to relax, I just stare Maybe I don't know if I should change A feeling that we share, it's a shame Number me with rage, it's a shame (Such a shame) Number me in haste (Such a shame) This eagerness to change It's a shame The dice decide my fate, that's a shame In these trembling hands my faith Tells me to react, I don't care Maybe it's unkind if I should change A feeling that we share, it's a shame (Such a shame) Number me with rage, it's a shame (Such a shame) Number me in haste (Such a shame) This eagerness to change Such a shame Tell me to relax, I just stare Maybe I don't know If I should change A feeling that we share It's a shame (Such a shame) Number me with rage, it's a shame (Such a shame) Number me in haste, it's a shame (Such a shame) Write across my name, it's a shame (Such a shame) Number me in haste (Such a shame) This eagerness to change Such a shame

I try to discover A little something to make me sweeter Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart I'm so in love with you I'll be forever blue That you give me no reason Why you're making me work so hard That you give me no That you give me no That you give me no That you give me no Soul, I hear you calling Oh baby please give a little respect to me And if I should falter Would you open your arms out to me We can make love not war And live at peace in our hearts I'm so in love with you I'll be forever blue What religion or reason Could drive a man to forsake his lover Don't you tell me no Don't you tell me no Don't you tell me no Don't you tell me no Soul, I hear you calling Oh baby please give a little respect to me I'm so in love with you I'll be forever blue That you give me no reason You know you're making me work so hard That you give me no That you give me no That you give me no That you give me no Soul, I hear you calling Oh baby please give a little respect to me Soul, I hear you calling Oh baby please give a little respect to me

about

This album is a cover album. We didn't write any of the songs. We borrowed them, changed a few things like the key, the arrangements and the general vibe. We recorded them with the utmost respect for the original artists.

We generally try to make our albums Name your Price but since we have to pay the songwriters regardless of whether or not we sell the songs, we had to put a price tag on this album.

This will be a digital only release. The only physical product with this album is the Playbutton you can find here: uniformmotion.bandcamp.com/merch/2gb-playbutton

Original songs by Grandaddy, Massive Attack, The National, Micah P. Hinson, Mgmt, Beach House, Cat Power, Talk Talk and Erasure.
