CHORUS: You know me come from Swansea Is it is it? Hmmm? (Yoda) In'ts it? No!! You know me granny's name is.. Is it is it? Hilda! Isnt it? Yeah!! VERSE 1 Was it a visit from the wise men three? Are we descended from a chimpanzee? Did we really fall from grace? Whats the story of the human race? VERSE 2 Sending love sending love to the jews Don’t really want anybody to lose Giving love giving love to the arab Hope we rise all rise like a scarab But is there just one way to mystic? I’m looking me for a new holistic Kiss the earth in a thousand ways Im living free and I love my days (CHORUS) VERSE 3 Here we are in the promised land Feel the love while I hold your hand Elohim all around we see (Its) only talk that we’re not free So is it this is it that who knows? We surrounded by sisters and bros If we know our history We’ll give in to the mystery (CHORUS) x2

(Chorus) Got me going like I’m falling asleep Got me going like I’m falling asleep Verse 1 Its over, And you can’t tell me anymore. Now its over, And I’ve been here, I’ve been here before Now its over, I guess its my turn now to walk away And its over, There’s nothing more much left, nothing more to say. Verse 2 (Its) started And I am sinking happily And you’re singing, Love is listening And its seeping into me I am sleeping Asleep beneath the water for eternity You are whispering You tell me secrets and your touch caresses me. (Chorus) Got me going like I’m falling asleep Got me going like I’m falling asleep (intro-mantra) My personality is melting into everybody elses, My personality is melting…. (Horn outro)

Verse 1 Me! My name is Winston Churchill And I know, Commando is the key. You! Art-deco flock of faschist Pin-stipe Kitsch, This boat belongs to me! Bombsfall Interlude Elevator falling, Now I’m falling too fast. Can you h ear me calling? Now I let go at last. Sink beneath the bassline, Who I find? Walking with my black dog, Is this the end of my mind? Verse 2 You! Are closing in positions, On our own, My darker friend and me. (but it’s a) Scin!-tillating sky dissolving, Vast expanse, This blue is all I see…… Chorus Aaah, I’m walking towards you Walking towards you, even when you fall Aaah, I’m lookin to love you Lookin to love you Love it all…. Outro Sink beneath the bassline, Who I find? Walking with my black dog, Is this the end of my mind?

about

Alt-pop four piece Hornman are very pleased to have co-produced their debut EP with Sound on Sound acclaimed producer Freddy Frogs of Montpellier, France.

The EP opens with “Swansea”, a step-out, fun electro-swing tune with gypsy horn-lines, filtered saw-tooth bass and an upbeat inspiring message.

In immediate contrast, hornman follow with “Personality is melting” which begins as an ambient trip-hop love-song with a deep-underwater, dreamy, almost sacred dimension and builds to a romping live drum and bass finale with a strong sax solo and sublime vocal harmonies.

The EP closes with the more electronically produced “Winston”, a dubstep-techstep oddysey of a song with powerful electric guitar and soaring vocal melodies.
