Product Description

Oftentimes is the first full length to come from A Genuine Freakshow, who have already begun to make a name for themselves in the UK with a tremendously unique sound that takes a traditional approach to pop songwriting but colors it with a dynamic pallet of orchestral timbres. Now that their music is crossing the pond, the band finds themselves in comparison to other indie rock American favorites such as Arcade Fire and Of Monsters and Men who have a similar knack for the tastefully grandiose. Yet, A Genuine Freakshow have truly found their sweet spot and carved out their own niche, creating a style of music that is intricate but unafraid of big melodies, as witnessed throughout the album and in particular on the lead track, “I Can Feel His Heartbeats” and single “Hopscotch Machine Gun Madness.”

    • Lyrics

      We are the cast iron certainties
      Who'll wreck your plans
      We are the marching thousands
      With hoisted flags
      Stop where you are
      And we'll hide around every corner
      Just so you know

      We are the undercurrents
      Rushing through the sea
      We are the nation's conscience
      Scaling effigies
      Stop where you are
      And we'll hide around every corner
      Just so you know

    • Lyrics

      This house, this house
      Could fill my lungs with lies
      And I'm scared of the walls
      And everything they hide

      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      And we want you to know

      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      And we want you to know
      That we love you

      Maybe it's your footsteps
      Maybe it's his heartbeats
      Maybe it's your footsteps
      Well I can feel them all

      Maybe when you get home
      Maybe when you get home
      Maybe when you get home
      Well I can feel them all
      When we're in love

      My hands and my head
      Are not connected up
      Stop me, stop me
      If we're fucking all this up

      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      And we want you to know

      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      We're getting better
      And we want you to know
      That we love you

      Maybe it's your footsteps
      Maybe it's his heartbeats
      Maybe it's your footsteps
      Well I can feel them all

      Maybe when you get home
      Maybe when you get home
      Maybe when you get home
      Well I can feel them all
      When we're in love

    • Lyrics

      Stop this
      'Cause you're stressing me out
      My mind works
      Far too fast
      I should trust you
      Well I've never fucked up
      And I'm just
      Hurting me
      Are you hell bent?
      I never said I am
      So why so serious?

      Stop
      That's your answer always
      What to walk behind your lines?
      Are you holy?
      Only when I'm at home
      So when
      It suits you best
      Are you hell bent?
      I never said I am
      So why so serious?

      If this is our life
      Then we should make the most of what we have
      Don't want to waste my life
      On chasing silver screen in Cannes
      I could be famous if I really really wanted to
      But I would just rather spend my life

      And it's all in your head
      And it's more than you'd care to think about
      You're no use to me dead
      I need you by my side and stuck to me

      Stop this
      'Cause you're stressing me out
      My mind works
      Far too fast
      I should trust you
      Well I've never fucked up
      And I'm just
      Hurting me
      Are you hell bent?
      I never said I am
      So why so serious?

      If this is our life
      Then we should make the most of what we have
      Don't want to waste my life
      On chasing silver screen in Cannes
      I could be famous if I really really wanted to
      But I would just rather spend my life

      And it's all in your head
      And it's more than you'd care to think about
      You're no use to me dead
      I need you by my side and stuck to me

    • Lyrics

      We'll build a house
      We'll build a house and we'll make it better
      Than it was before
      We walked through walls

      This is how we'll leave here
      We can help ourselves if we want to
      And behind our eyes
      We have sold out for our families

      We're lost when you're gone
      And we'll be here
      We're lost when you're gone

      We could end up dead here
      On the news not national but local
      Leaving all we know
      And all we loved

      This is how we'll leave here
      On our own to make us better
      Than it was before
      We lived among the needy

      We're lost when you're gone
      And we'll be here
      We're lost when you're gone

    • Lyrics

      You're heading down a road you know
      With flashlights on and weapons drawn
      To harm yourself, protect yourself
      Don't harm yourself

      You're heading down a road you know
      With flashlights on and weapons drawn
      She thinks that I would cut her skin
      She thinks that I would let her in

      Your ignorance it makes me sick
      You load your guns before you think
      You drag the king in from his trail
      With all arms raised and TVs on
      We'll drag the killers from their beds
      Will hand them over to their dead
      They'll be no trial for these men, these men

      Won't you see
      Won't you see
      You're always looking through me
      You cut me out

      Won't you see
      Won't you see
      You're always looking through me
      You cut me out

      You're like me when I'm on fire
      You're like me when I'm on fire
      You're like me when I'm on fire
      You're like me when I'm on fire

      Won't you leave
      Won't you leave
      You're always looking through me
      You cut me out

      You're like me when I'm on fire
      You're like me when I'm on fire
      You're like me when I'm on fire
      You're like me when I'm on fire

      Tell me now how does it feel
      To be dead from your neck to your knees?
      I swear this is the last time that I'll stand
      With my eyes fixed on you

      Our bodies, look into our bodies
      Consider us and cover us in angel dust
      And we won't waste our lives

      Hollywood, we could live in Hollywood
      Or anywhere as long as we are safe and cared for
      And we won't waste our lives
      No we won't waste our lives

      You're what we came for

      Heroin, you could be my heroine
      Controlling me, forever more loving me
      And we won't waste our lives
      No we won't waste our lives

      You're what we came for

      They'll have to prise our bodies apart
      They'll have to prise
      They'll have to prise our bodies apart
      They'll have to prise

      We could start a riot

      We're holding our hearts
      Like we have never before
      And I went into your house
      And stole all the pictures from the walls

      A wiser man than me once said
      You can't lose something you never had
      Well that don't feel the same with you

      What he lost I don't quite know
      His wallet from his pocket gone?
      Well that don't feel the same with you

      I'm just firing a warning shot to you
      White flag goes up above my door
      Yeah I'm just firing a warning shot to you
      Grab your things and run away

      There was a man who spent his life at sea
      He hardly saw his family
      But that don't feel the same with you

      He lost his life with whom he shared
      His wife his kids
      For whom he cared
      Well that don't feel the same with you

      I'm just firing a warning shot to you
      White flag goes up above my door
      Yeah I'm just firing a warning shot to you
      Grab your things and run away
