Hippo Campus – Way It Goes

I have to admit, I haven’t been a huge fan of this band all along. I think this song just changed my mind. They were a little too college kid alt-rock, ‘finding quarters in the couch to go in together on a pizza’ type band. But you can hear that they are maturing into their own sound now. It isn’t easy for every band to find their signature sound, but I think this suits them. Nice breezy sound. It’s a good one to mellow out to on a weekend afternoon. Also, they always look like they have fun. Cool bunch of kids.

(But how do that many people even get paid in a band anymore?)

I digress.

This is great to listen to while finishing up that midterm cram session.

Lyrics:

Wisconsin pines, collaborating with the day glow vibes
An altruistic breed of travel guide
It’s chill, but lord knows you’re trying
Zombie kids love to hear that easy
Going shit
Grab a guitar and
Just moaning shit
It’s cool
But Lord knows you’re trying
That’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
It’s so satisfying
You put your records on
Exclusively the old Pavement ones
A 90’s soul with Doc Martens on
A step, a step away from crying
Degenerate, counter-culture, crying socialist
Hip-to-lazed crazed abstractionists
We’re weird, but Lord knows we’re trying
That’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
It’s so satisfying
Yeah
That’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
One step away from crying
Well that’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
Yeah-eh-eh thats the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
It’s so satisfying
Yeah-eh-eh that’s the way it goes
That’s the way it goes
One step away from crying
Songwriters: Whistler Isaiah Allen / Jake Michael Luppen / Nathan Todd Stocker / Zach Mark Sutton
