mates of state get better

The video for Mates of State’s – “Get Better” came out today. It’s another video following the Furry Fandom flurry that has taken over the indie music scene. Their new album will be released on May 20th, 2008. There have been other bicycle-riding animal mask wearing video’s and I’m sure there are more to come, but Mates of State will always have my heart.

UPDATE: Jason Hammel (the husband of the husband/wife MOS duo) responded to my request to fill in the blanks for the lyrics in question. From the man himself, “Here are the completer lyrics from our album. Enjoy.”

Mates of State’s – Get Better Lyrics
Forget all your politics for awhile, let the color schemes arrive.
Forget all your politics for awhile, let the color schemes arrive.

Come onboard, it’s a curious sight.
Absorbing sound that’s never been right.
Never ahead of, never behind it.
Occasionally guarded, just keeps us surrounded.
It’s luck.

Every thing’s gonna get lighter, even if it never gets better. Ahh.

I propose a less serious boat.
But don’t mistake it for a party of jokes, who are never ahead of, never behind us.
Floating in circles there’s more to remind them
of less.

Done, I’m done, I’m done.

Every thing’s gonna get lighter, even if it never gets better. Ahh.

Forget all your politics for awhile, let the color schemes arrive.(x6)

Every thing’s gonna get lighter, even if it never gets better.
Everything’s gonna get lighter, even if it never gets better.
