Exclusive: Color Theory – Extroverts at Play

“Extroverts at Play” is an Audio Drums exclusive from the new Color  Theory album, The Sound.  I love the Goldfrapp feel of this track with an  unrelenting and almost brooding bassline.  What completes this track is the chorus and the contempt of Brian’s voice as he sings, “If they would just shut up” — ya, i’m total agreement with Brian.

The Sound features 9 all-new originals and a cover  of a-ha’s classic “Living a Boy’s Adventure Tale.” Packaged in a  6-panel Digipak with original art by himitsuhana, the CD is limited to  1,000 copies worldwide and is available for pre-order at  colortheory.com.

In addition to the standard Limited Edition CD, Brian Hazard of Color  Theory is trying out something new: The Individual Edition CD. Hazard  describes it as follows:

“As a souvenir of your support, I will create a personalized custom CD  featuring unique mixdowns of each of the 12 songs I recorded for the  album. The outtakes “Touch” and “Release the Hounds” are not on the  standard Limited Edition CD and will not appear on any future physical  release. The disc will open with a token of my appreciation – a spoken  “thank you” mentioning you by name.”

You can read all about it and get a taste of each of the album’s 10  tracks here:  http://colortheory.com/the-sound-available-for-pre-order

Exclusive: Color Theory – Extroverts at Play


Extroverts at Play
©2010 Brian Hazard (ASCAP)

They don’t know what they believe
So we stare and nod as they think out loud
Trying our best to fit in
As we fight for breath in this stifling crowd
And the time races by when you’re having some fun
But it’s plodding along now at quarter to one
As the night tries our patience we’re hitting a wall
I sneak off to the side like I’m taking a call to observe

Extroverts at play
Egos run amuck
I’d like them well enough
If they would just shut up
But we will persevere
By sheer force of will
We’ll stoically endure
This social overkill

Maybe someday this will
Come to us more naturally but
Until then we’ll have to pretend

Tomorrow we’ll take the whole day
To recuperate in a private place
Sleeping or reading a book
Our resilience now is our saving grace
So just try to imagine, it’s not such a stretch
I’m the life of the party and it is the death of me
Here in my eyes you’re the belle of the ball
With the hint of a smile you enchant more than all of the…

We’ll hone our acting skills
Fake it ’til we make it baby
Until then we’ll have to pretend
