Just went onto my account on Band Camp just to see if anything popped up, and lo and behold there's a new single! Mission Control!!!!

Listed as a "work in progress", but I love it. Very simple celesta-like sounds overlaid on her singing with some primitive beats. Crazies, get it!

Why is it a zip with two files that seem to be the same?

I cannot answer "why", but can confirm they are exactly the same.

i see that it says 'album 4' ...interesting! so maybe this was supposed to be for 'dancing on needles' but for whatever reason didnt make it on there. i love the sound of it...sometimes i listen to a song for the first time and i focus on the lyrics or the music (this is why i listen to a song on repeat...gotta put it all together lol).

for this song, the music/the sound grabbed me. i cant tell you what she's singing about (yet) but i love the tempo, the light electronics, the (as skektek calls it) celesta-like sounds. so pretty. <3

Interesting. I made the assumption that labeling it "album 4" is that it's for the next album. I thought "Dancing on Needles" is album 3!

I've been playing too many ARGs (Alternate Reality Gaming) lately (spent about 20 minutes trying to see if one version was slightly different than the other to get some secret message). Time not totally wasted, I do like that song!

sounds very veins/stromata era to me. like a mix of bones and the stromata b-sides.

and yeah leirali, i took album 4 to mean the next album as well. but maybe it was written around the time of DON and is now being considered for the next one?

edit: it kinda reminds me of some songs on orphans, too.

Is this for the Crazies package only? I didn't get an e-mail from BandFarm so I'm assuming it is.

P.S. When will the next b-side be available?

This song is SO amazing for a "work in progress". Guess that is why all of us here love Char! Smile

I'm hoping for a new b-side on Valentine's day - that would be really nice Smile

Are all fan club members automatically emailed when a new downloadable content is added? Coz I didn't get my email. Razz

Got it now and I love it! I don't see how it compares with any previous work at all. It's a true CharMar original! Very Happy

Could someone take a stab at transcribing these lyrics? I'm learning it on piano but I suck at hearing lyrics... Can someone help me out?

This is compiled from all releases, though most from the demo. "Over him" could be "Over here", and the post-bridge section is a mess (lots of over-effects).

---

Mission control, this is for real
And there is no rewinding now
I'm Out of control with what I feel
If you can spare a second Mr. Fix It...
Mr Fix It...

Mission Control, I'm over my head
And I cannot decide between
Walking the plank, or into the wall
If you can lend a cup o' love
your tricks please, from your sleeve

(CHORUS)
I'm having trouble concentrating
Wish I wasn't hesitating
I'm having problems levitating
Out of here
I make decisions in the moment
with all my senses overloaded
but all the same, my heart's exploded
Over him

I should let go
I should give in
Make sure I chew this very slow
Cause who I am
And where I've been
Will direct everywhere I go,
and whether I keep myself together

(CHORUS)
(INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE)
(CHORUS)

---

ADDED TO HIDING PLACES (Really hard to make out- help!):

(CHORUS)

Shouldn't insist that I couldn't resist
You make him think of everything
Teeth in the bar with your magic supply
Try not to take the bad thing
That little land of fake

(BRIDGE)
(CHORUS)

Mission control, this is for real
And there is no denying now
I was the war, chasing your heels
You couldn't spare a second for a minute
For my twisted symphony

(3x)
I made it into a mission
I made it into a mission
I made it into a mission
I made it into a mission
I made it into a mission
I made it into a mission, now.

For this part I hear:

Shouldn't insist it, I couldn't resist
You(re) making figure eights
Teasing the spire/fire with your magic supplier
Tried not to take the bait
The little land/lamb of faith
