The Hoosiers Bumpy Ride EP

Right then. Bumpy Ride was originally released in 2011, and was basically a re-issue of the Illusion Of Safety album plus 4 ‘bonus’ tracks, as well as a DVD of additional material.

In 2013 we’ve decided to put things back to normal and re-issue the The Illusion of Safety album with track list and artwork as it was originally released in 2010.

Rather than leaving the 4 ‘bonus’ tracks only on the CD+DVD release, we’ve released this download-only Bumpy Ride EP which contains just these so you can pick up the few extra tracks you may be missing!

TRACK LIST
1. Say Hello Wave Goodbye
2. Used To Be Love
3. Sister Sister
4. Squeeze

Say Hello Wave Goodbye

Standing in the door of the Pink Flamingo
Crying in the rain
It was a kind of so so love
And I’m going to make sure it never
Happens again
You and I
It had to be
The standing joke of the year
You were a sleep around
A lost and found
And not for me I fear

I tried to make it work
You in a cocktail skirt
And me in a suit
(Well it just wasn’t me)
You’re used to wearing less
And now your life’s a mess
So insecure you see
I put up with all the scenes
And this is one scene
That’s going to be played my way

Take your hands off me
I don’t belong to you you see
Take a look at my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello wave goodbye

Say hello then wave goodbye

Used To Be Love

Used to be
Used to be love
But it doesn’t matter now it doesn’t matter
Used to be
Used to be love
But it doesn’t matter now it doesn’t matter at all

Let’s make up a lie
I’ll pretend I’m doing fine
Blissful sleepless nights
Oh it just won’t let it show that I can’t let it go

Whisper in my ear
It’s such sweet paranoia
On and on so hopeless
Got me seeing stars oh do you remember when it

Used to be
Used to be love
But it doesn’t matter now it doesn’t matter
But it used to be
Used to be love
But it doesn’t matter now it doesn’t matter at all

Change your frequency to a different wavelength
Broken symphony
And I just can’t let it show that I can’t let it go
Thousand sleepless nights
Took comfort in confusion
On and on so hopeless
Got me seeing stars oh do you remember when it

Used to be
Used to be love
But it doesn’t matter now it doesn’t matter
But it used to be
Used to be love
But it doesn’t matter now it doesn’t matter at all

Lying to myself if I thought there could be a chance
There could be a chance
But I keep on lying
Lying to myself if I thought there could be a chance
There could be a chance
Slim hope fat chance

Sister Sister

She’s got magic in her fingertips
She’s turning neon now
Rubbing shoulders but not kissing lips
I’ll get her home somehow

She’s turning heads like a whiplash
You know she’s not to blame
I’ve got to wonder where you come from baby
With that name

Sister sister you have all the fun and
I insist you leave some for everyone
I know I know it’s a cruel world for you
Sister sister

Imagination getting fired up
She got the money to burn
I come to see you say you won’t mix when baby
It’s my turn

Sister sister you have all the fun and
I insist you leave some for everyone
I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister sister you have all the fun and
I insist you leave some for everyone
I know I know it’s a cruel world for you
Sister sister

Can’t stand to see you fall apart
Something has touched my hollow heart
And I can’t watch you do this to yourself

Sister sister you have all the fun and
I insist you leave some for everyone
I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister sister you have all the fun and
I insist you leave some for everyone
I know I know it’s a cruel world for you
Sister sister

Squeeze

Trouble where have you been all my life?
Always surrendered when I should stand-up and fight
Get out you shouldn’t have come back here
Regrets shouldn’t be planned
I should have learnt to stay clear

Cold cold cold apply the pressure till I’m on my knees
Strangle-hold apply the pressure till I feel the squeeze

No more moderation in infatuation you got a squeeze on me
Pretend I got the power make me say it louder you got a squeeze on me

Naked young and ambitious a bad combination that you make delicious to me

Cold cold cold apply the pressure till I’m on my knees
Strangle-hold apply the pressure till I feel the squeeze

No more moderation in infatuation you got a squeeze on me
Pretend I got the power make me say it louder you got a squeeze on me
No more moderation in infatuation you got a squeeze on me
Pretend I got the power make me say it louder you got a squeeze on me

Silent your lies are like diamonds
They shimmer and brighten
You’ll be the death of me
No can’t convince myself I don’t understand
Results of the actions caused by my hand there’s no magic wand I can wave

No more moderation in infatuation you got a squeeze on me
Pretend I got the power make me say it louder you got a squeeze on me
No more moderation in infatuation you got a squeeze on me
Pretend I got the power make me say it louder, you got a squeeze on me
