Fools Gold EP

Fool’s Gold is our latest offering and a continuation in the evolution of the Tree House Fire sound. This new record was a chance to incorporate the technology that has been added to the live set over the last year, refined and retuned whilst touring and sharing the stage with some of our biggest influences.

The recording process was another great adventure. It brought about the opportunity for us to work with different producers, broadening our influences and helping develop our sound further.

The tracks we’ve created and the vibe they bring, twist and turn through dub grooves, solid skanks and energetic electric stompers, layered vocals and harmonies contributing to that rich Brit-Reggae sound.

 

Track 1 - Fools Gold

Jump up and hit the ground running
We’re lacking time, they can hear us all coming
We march in rhythm as we charge through the streets
Focusing our minds and our heart all align with the drum beat
No sleep until we’ve carried out our mission
Guessing you’ve been told we’re lazy
Let me tell you what you’re missing
There’s a hell of a passion and a fire up inside us
We’re rolling with the luck, run in with the touch of Midas


You best believe it when I tell it
The rhythm never gets old
You will buy it if we sell it
Now you pile up your fools gold
While you pile up your fools gold

When did we become frightened by the sun
Jumping at the sight of our own shadows makes us run
Straight into a trap there’s no turning back
We’re left with what we settled for it stings just like a slap
On bare skin on the coldest of mornings
We will have the answer when the wolf comes calling
Trust when the wolf comes calling we will have the answer when the wolf come

You best believe it when I tell it
The rhythm never gets old
You will buy it if we sell it
Now you pile up your fools gold
While you pile up your fools gold

Steady yourself and brace for the impact
Hold it in tight or be first to react
Losing your head is not an option no no
Think quicker don’t slip one way to stop them

Let me tell you now

You best believe it when I tell it
The rhythm never gets old
You will buy it if we sell it
Now you pile up your fools gold
While you pile up your fools gold

 

track 2 - Früit

So we’ve found ourselves in the place that we wanted to be
But the fruits not as sweet as it seemed at the start
When the notion was only a dream

I hear it going down like a glass shatters as it hits the ground
It only matters when the fists come out
We’ll fair better next time around
And if we keep our noses out of trouble as it bubbles up
and starts to rise
We’ve got to keep our focus move on the double as it bubbles up and starts to rise

So we’ve found ourselves in the place that we wanted to be
But the fruits not as sweet as it seemed at the start
When the notion was only a dream

Maybe we could move see it through a fresh new pair of eyes Always trip stumble at the borderline as we struggle on through fading light
Now step, move forward no regret
Trouble to the back of the mind
We’ve got to keep our pace and hold our focus as it bubbles up and starts to rise

So we’ve found ourselves in the place that we wanted to be
But the fruits not as sweet as it seemed at the start
When the notion was only a dream

Lost letters of love
Postcards of hope
We’re going to need a miracle. 
I think we’re going to need a miracle
To keep ourselves afloat without losing hope
We’re going to need a miracle
I think we’re going to need a miracle

So we’ve found ourselves in the place that we wanted to be
But the fruits not as sweet as it seemed at the start
When the notion was only a dream

 

Track 3 – Targets

Eyes fixed on a moving target struggle to take a breath
Not for the faint of heart and he’s hoping for the best
If the rest come crawling back he’ll be calling out the shots
Ring fire start to crack

A moment of madness can bring a lifetime of sadness
It happens quick as a flash and you’ve landed right in the madness Imagine this is as good as it gets
Instead of a life for living got a world of regrets

Holding on to pick yourself up off the dirt again
Losing sleep find no relief here from the hurt  
Holding on to pick yourself up off the dirt again
Losing sleep find no relief here from the hurt
No relief here from the hurt

It’s hard enough to pick apart the pieces of the puzzle
Pinpoint where he let himself down
Such a minor moment turned sour in a second
Seconds later his was on the ground 

You know a moment of madness can bring a lifetime of sadness
It happens quick as a flash and you’ve landed right in the madness Imagine this is as good as it gets
Instead of a life for living got a world of regrets

Holding on to pick yourself up off the dirt again
Losing sleep, find no relief here from the hurt  
Holding on to pick yourself up off the dirt again
Losing sleep, find no relief here from the hurt
No relief here from the hurt

Eyes fixed on a moving target struggle to take a breath
Not for the faint of heart and he’s hoping for the best
If the rest come crawling back he’ll be calling out the shots
Ring fire start to crack
It’s hard enough to pick apart the pieces of the puzzle
Pinpoint where he let himself down
Such a minor moment turned sour in a second
Seconds later his was on the ground 

Holding on to pick yourself up off the dirt again
Losing sleep, find no relief here from the hurt  
Holding on to pick yourself up off the dirt again
Losing sleep, find no relief here from the hurt
No relief here from the hurt

 

Track 4 – Stand Tall

I figured that I’d hit rock bottom but I didn’t want to jinx myself
I always tried to keep an eye for problems
Still I loaded them and carried them onwards
It’s as if I couldn’t see the signs like I could not hear the alarms Hindsight has told me that I was blindsided by your charms 

I thought I’d seen it all until you just walked by
Standing tall and I knew that you would mean something to me
A whole lot more than I planned it to be
I thought I’d seen it all

 

At times I would find another reason why I could excuse myself Resisting the urge to wonder what would happen if I let it all go but we’ve got to have hope
We’re living in the here and now
Now I want you to be here
So girl step a little closer let me whisper words of love
Into your ear let me be clear

I thought I’d seen it all until you just walked by
Standing tall and I knew that you would mean something to me
A whole lot more than I planned it to be
I thought I’d seen it all

 

Track 5 – Rock and a Hard Place

I care for these words bubbling up from the depths of my heart
That’s heavy so start we’re ready for the fire
To burn up all of this hype and climb higher
Reaching up in to the stars with the palms or our hands held out
Anticipation racing from our brain but getting stuck before it falls out of our mouths
It’s hard to stay silent and golden when loud and outspoken
Wound up and goaded

Caught between a rock and a hard place
Find it hard to compete in this race
The battles never easy
The battle’s never over
So over again we go
Caught between a rock and a hard place
Find it hard to compete in this race
The battles never easy
The battle’s never over
So over again we go.

Pick up the pace and add them weights no time to contemplate
It’s nothing but a mental state and statements what we make
Making waves in the ocean the motion keeps up floating
Always pushing harder knowing exactly where we’re going
To the top ain’t got no time to stop
No focus on the drop
You know we’re bubbling hot and we bring that heat all night
Light it like the sunlight brightens up the daytime skies

Caught between a rock and a hard place
Find it hard to compete in this race
The battles never easy
The battle’s never over
So over again we go
Caught between a rock and a hard place
Find it hard to compete in this race
The battles never easy
The battle’s never over
So over again we go

 

Track 6 – Sound of a Siren

Sound of another siren screaming as the darkness is creeping in. 
I find it hard to get a little minute of rest, feel my best or lose this stress
That’s stacked square upon my shoulders
These nights can’t get much colder
Unless we lived in a freezer
At least that way the rent might be cheaper
All these worries seem to blend into one
it’s hard to see solutions when you’re staring at the sun
So I’ll try and take a little step back, figure out the best form of attack

There is truth in what they say
Ooh the sound of a siren
Even a broken watch tells the right time twice a day
There is truth in what they say
Ooh the sound of a siren
Even a broken watch tells the right time twice a day

As I step in to the club feeling pretty wasted
Listen to the dub pumping out the bass bin
When It’s in for a penny then it’s in for a pound
In for the love if when in for the sound
Now step to a whole new rhythm
Be bold with quick decisions on time
You know that you’ll feel just fine
Jump up and take days with both hands
Embrace and keep faith in those plans
We’ll always strive for the sun and sand
So never settle where you stand 

There is truth in what they say
Ooh the sound of a siren
Even a broken watch tells the right time twice a day
There is truth in what they say
Ooh the sound of a siren
Even a broken watch tells the right time twice a day
