  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    6-song EP recorded in 1987.

    During seven years of relentless touring, Get Smart! earned a national reputation for intense live shows and edged their way onto college radio playlists with their first two LPs, Action Reaction (1984) and Swimming With Sharks (1986).

    In January, 1987, the band began work on their third album with seminal recording engineer, Iain Burgess. These recordings were archived for 33 years until Get Smart! reformed this year.

    With the aim of matching their live sound, the band commissioned Steve Albini to craft the final mixes with them. These six songs prove that the tension and inspiration shown on their first LPs was no idle promise.

I beat my soul I’m down on my knees I got what I want And I’m begging you to please me So come on!

Rhythm Empty 02:43
What's underneath where light has gone? Where something's born we fall apart Where breath is faint inhale with me Inhaling rhythm empty Who dies alone when strength has gone? When nothing's left; when this feels right When words fall short collide with me Colliding rhythm empty Like worlds in time, for one last time Please, stare at me trusting rhythm empty

I saw you in your tower I paid the fee I gave my blood I spit on my shoes To live in your shadow I lost more than I could find Under the rug Under the rug Under the rug you feel me scream In your complacency leave me be I see colors of the ones before Drink and stumble; drink and stumble Dark it burns Shattered and dry Failing solo and now I hide Cursed livin' forward plunge What's in the mainstream is under the rug What's in the mainstream is under the rug Under the rug I saw you walking Do you know your way? I saw light fall into grey It followed me home It made me ill Steady, boy You've had your Fill What's under the rug Is now in my bed It's made its way into the scheme of things How do you plead with your pants on fire How do you plead with your pants on fire? When a bucket of water Is under the rug Under the rug Under the rug you feel me scream In your complacency leave me be I see colors of the ones before Drink and stumble; drink and stumble How do you choke your one desire? [3x] Don't look for me, don't look for me [2x] I'm under the rug I'm under the rug I'm under the rug I'm under the rug I'm under the rug I'm under the rug [3x]

Grab her now while they fade away I thought it was three years today When all forgottens turn memories astray We'll brace the door where the bodies lay Let's get out, out in the rain And watch them dance around the drain So, we have pleasure and freshly caught pain Break it in pieces; we'll sleep on the stain So, one has to go and one has to stay Let's get drunk and not fade away Absence pulls the heartstrings longer Absence makes the hair grow blonder Let's get out, out in the rain And watch them dance inside my brain So, we have pleasure and freshly caught pain Break it in pieces; we'll sleep on the stain Absence pulls the heartstrings longer

If it lasts for an hour It’s just an illusion It’s lasting too long and you’re an intrusion Interrupt when I’m talking Asleep when I’m walking You can stop the sound You can touch the ground But you can’t You can’t move me A pile of confusion’s tied up in my head It’s spitting out anger and I’m full of dread We’re moving through changes We won’t pass again You’re looking through curtains You’re wondering when I’ll disappear Cover me with rain Cover me with rain We can slip and fall We can lose it all But you can’t change me You can’t change me You can’t change me You can’t change me It’s hard It’s hard Someone’s spinning tales of wonder Someone’s got a bottle to kill Someone’s gonna make it thunder But this one’s slipping on the painted floor Someone’s spinning tales of wonder Someone’s got a bottle to kill Someone’s gonna make it thunder But this one’s slipping on the painted floor It’s hard It’s hard It’s hard to hear your heartbeat When you’re dreaming It’s hard to hear your heartbeat When you’re dreaming It’s hard It’s hard It’s hard to hear your heartbeat When you’re screaming It’s hard to hear your heartbeat When you’re screaming When you’re screaming Someone’s spinning tales of wonder Someone’s got a bottle to kill Someone’s gonna make it thunder But this one’s slipping on the painted floor Someone’s spinning tales of wonder Someone’s got a bottle to kill Someone’s gonna make it thunder But this one’s slipping on the painted floor On the painted floor On the painted floor I’m On the painted floor On the painted floor On the painted floor

Paradise 02:48
Here you are today with your head full of stones Thinking that you own what was never quite yours You hit the street, look left then right You follow him where you will go But you'll never think to follow me to paradise; to paradise I saw you yesterday looking better than before Talking of a life that could never be yours You looked at me; I see through you Wishing all your thoughts could fill your dreams But I never want to waste a day in paradise; in paradise Now, you're on your own; it's not the bridges that get burned Look who's missing whom or what you miss the most You save your breath again and lie I really thought I would let you try I bet you never thought I'd let you die in your paradise; your paradise
