Yo Hello Hooray – Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker

Watch/Listen here:

Okay, you have to love the band’s name. I mentioned them a long while back. Of course many djs have decided USS was good enough but hey, what’s wrong with saying it? It’s fun! The first sng I heard by these guys was Hollow Point Sniper Hyperbole. Say the whole thing!! Today’s track is from their latest EP Approved.

Lyrics here, more below:
Every day, every day

Start panicking, turn into a mannequin
Take a breath now, ahh, begin again
Open your eyes please
Turn your smile on
Realign with now as well
You start freaking out
Wishing you were peaking out
Hold it together now
Instead of leaking out
Turn your smile on
Turn your smile up bright

Remember the days when your laughter was meant
Remember the days when you did what you said
You’re counting the days til you get high again
Chill out, be easy on yourself

You stop choosing it
Suddenly you’re losing it
Give it a kiss now
Instead of bruising it
More than a mean fear
Pieces whole here
Let the past go boys and girls
You start stressing out
Time to learn a lesson, doubts
Not in your jeans, so please stop your guessing about
Turn your smile on
Turn your smile up bright

Remember the days when your laughter was meant
Remember the days when you did what you said
You’re counting the days til you get high again
Chill out, be easy on yourself

Every day, every day
Every day in 50 million ways
I like to play with each cell of your brain
I call and say Yo Hello Hooray
I’d like to wake up a moment from your smile

Remember the days when your laughter was meant
Remember the days when you did what you said
You’re counting the days til you get high again
Chill out, be easy on yourself

Every day, every day
Every day in 50 million ways
I like to play with each cell of your brain
I call and say Yo Hello Hooray
I’d like to wake up a moment from your smile

Every day, every day
Every day in 50 million ways
I like to play with each cell of your brain
I call and say Yo Hello Hooray
I’d like to wake up a moment from your smile

Okay, so some people may focus on the line about getting high again.  I have listened to this track a hundred times and I really don’t think it’s about drugs.  It’s about feeling good about yourself.  Like you are low on yourself.

For me the same two lines keep running around my head: “Remember the days when your laughter was meant.  Remember the days when you did what you said’.  And when we live in a world where we are lied to daily.  When everything at work, in politics and so many areas of our live is ‘spin’.  We live in a world where artificial is new real.  Look at that, I just used one of those stupid ‘Thursday is the new Friday’ analogies.  It is everywhere.  The fucked up artifice of reality, looks and thoughts in our media driven world.  It’s the twisted view of anorexic models combined with Food Network.  How do you balance that?

So for me this song is a rarity.  A positive force picking you up in the darkness that surrounds us.  Let go of your pain, don’t be so hard on yourself and for God’s sake SMILE!  This one makes me feel good!

    I came across this post while looking for lyrics for this song, believe it or not, it was a lot harder than you’d think. First, I absolutely love this band, I love every album, every song, every one of their concerts I’ve been too. Second, this song is killer. I think your take on this song is spot on, well thought-out and over all it’s the truth. I can easily relate to this song, and I’m certainly not the only one. Well done good sir, I enjoyed reading about your thoughts on this song, and I hope you find your true happiness!
