about

Holy Smokes Burlington, Vermont

Holy Smokes began in Burlington, VT as a collaboration between four UVM seniors screwing around on classic hip-hop tunes. Holy Smokes soon began writing original material and then moved on to playing shows around Burlington basements where they acquired the black lung - deciding afterwards to play shows at venues around town. ... more

Track Name: Lime
Circling following signs
Hoping it will reverse time
Hoping your fate will undo

Can’t look back on what’s behind
Undertow reclaims its right
Apparition fades from view

Not an island a good man
Stranded me away from land
Shifting sand obscures the truth

A missing dove a search above
Leaves me blinded by the sun
In thought of summer’s golden hue

Away we run
Away we run
Waiting for you to come back to
Track Name: Slow Repeat
Just as we are turning blue
I find myself falling more in love with you
And if you want me to
I can put on some Erykah Badu
And say adieu to you too

Blissful play
Great escape
Should’ve changed
But we stayed the same

We’ve got cold feet
We’ve got cold feet
We’ve got Albert King
On slow repeat
Yes we do

Moving faster getting closer
I am younger I am older
If we all had changed
Would it matter anyway?
I will take the blame
But its such a shame
If you want me to
I will wait with you

I’ve got cold feet
You’ve got cold feet
We’ve got Albert King
On slow repeat
Yes we do
Track Name: Cheeryohs
I have been here for some years
Haven’t got a clue what I’m doing here
I have lived I have been
I was once so worried

In the morning where I seize the sun’s glare
I become aware its a lonely stare
I have lived I have been
I was once so worried

I see everyone I take in the sun
I fly through the air I am everywhere
I have been I was once

I go down slow
I go too low
I go down

You learn too slow
But now you know
You’ll find out

I have been here for some years
But now I know what I’m doing here
Going to get up leave

And when I catch your eyes as I pass you by
Hope you see my path in the night sky
I reach for bigger dreams

I see everyone I take in the sun
I fly through the air I am everywhere
I have been I was once

I go down slow
I go too low
I go down

You learn too slow
But now you know
You’ll find out

If you could know who you will be would you stay the same or would you see
what lies down paths unknown?
Yeah, your sweater’s come undone and though you failed to kiss the sun
At least you dared to have flown

I go down slow
I go too low
I go down

You learn too slow
But now you know
You found out
