about

Hobbsy is the project of ex Smokin’ Joker bass player Ben Hobbs from Geelong - Australia. Having tasted mild success with Joker (namely supporting Deep Purple and twice touring the US) Hobbs found himself retiring from music when lead singer Cory Hargreaves relocated to Queensland to begin his successful solo career.

As time passed Hobbs felt that itch again. It was an itch that he was never able to scratch within the confines of a more straight ahead rock band. Here he has now branched out with a more powerful and epic approach.

The debut album aptly titled “Risen From The Dead” features collaborations and vocals from long time friends Clint Johannes, Brett Rerekura, Alex Williams and lead guitars from old band mate Andrew Cromwell.

The track "Mannya Jam" features real sounds from the kids from Mannya PS and Mannya Dance group in Mannya Uganda.

All CD cover art provided in print ready.

Track Name: The Few and the Many
The Few and the Many
(Hobbs/Johannes)

Masquerade
Man I thought I had this figured out
But in the final days
Yeah there’s something in the air tonight
Wars arise
The earth groans life due ending
Life’s due end
Yet we live like we don’t care
Like a thief in the night
He’ll come to finish what he started
We can bet on it

White washed tombs
We wear a cross and warm the pews
But with a kiss
We betray him with our hearts
Hypocrite
The day is here the hour is nigh
This last warning
To fess up and repent
God’s Hand has lifted now
All hell’s about to break loose
We can bet on it

There are the few and the many
Who will be counted with the few at His side
We face this ending face this together
Lets stand up and defend Him

Its my life no more Your Blood
You laid Yours down for me
I lay mine down for You

There are the few and the many
Who will be counted with the few at His side
We face this ending face this together
Lets stand up and defend Him…..
Track Name: The Awakening
The Awakening
(Hobbs/Williams)

Open your mind
It’s not too hard when the third eye
is truly aligned

Open your mind to the possibilities
and what you will find will surely define
The rest of your life on this blue speck of dust
When we all learn to trust ourselves
The aura of guilt and misery
and confusion will melt
Revealing a world where we can all learn to fly

Open your mind invite
Ramifications and sensations inside your mind
Fused to an idealist dream of contagions
Through all nations together merged deeply with love

Completely ignored
By the bored and agoraphobic imbeciles
one hand on their throbbing heart
one hand on the games they've yet to start.
Its crazed outrageous to think
These days are engaged

In a haze
Of demented and depraved and enslaved

Individuals with a schedule policed by fear
of your neighbour
No need for reflection, with a fostered suspicion
on those who live their own lives
Faith in the saviour, its too late to save ya
its too late for us, the time has come

Open your mind
Its not too hard when the third eye
is truly aligned…..

Open your mind
Its not too hard when the third eye
is truly aligned…..
Track Name: I am
I Am
(Hobbs/Rerekura)

I’m not sure exactly what it is
It’s been gone a long time

My time has come so walk away
I’ll never stop till I can say

I’m falling away
My heart is still chasing you
And all I am
I’ll know I’ll finally be with you

I’m not sure exactly where I’ve been
Cos I’ve been gone a long time

My time has come now walk away
I’ll never stop till I can say

I’m falling away
My heart is still chasing you
And all I am
I’ll know I’ll finally be with you

Free all your love
Will break this sound
Never hear

I’m falling away
My heart is still chasing you
And all I am
I’ll know I’ll finally be with you

I’m falling away
My heart is still chasing you
And all I am
I’ll know I’ll finally be with you

I am still falling down…….
Track Name: Your Silence
Your Silence
(Hobbs/Johannes)

Analyze this inside our minds
Our demise is our beginning
With a lie we straddle time
Thinking our lives aren’t ending
And in this filthy state
This state of apathy
We find another way

On our dying day we fall away
Been living with this flavour
While the silent pray others take
Their lives into their hands

I don’t understand
But in this sinking there’s meaning
I don’t understand
And in this meaning those nails are piercing me

Fitting in tight we gotta love
Gotta love this charade we’re playing
What about love and Him dying
We refuse to look and deny Him
And in this empty place
This place of unbelief
We find another way

On our dying day we fall away
Been living with this flavour
While the silent pray others take
Their lives into their hands

I don’t understand
But in this sinking there’s meaning
I don’t understand
And in this meaning those nails are piercing

I don’t understand
Coz I cant see you but I know you
I don’t understand
Coz I cant feel you but I trust you


If I ever needed someone its now
Your silence it beckons me as you break me down again

I don’t understand
But in this sinking there’s meaning
I don’t understand
And in this meaning those nails are piercing

I don’t understand
But in this sinking there’s meaning
I don’t understand
And in this meaning those nails are piercing

I don’t understand
Coz I cant see you but I know you
I don’t understand
Coz I cant feel you but I trust you

I don’t understand
Coz I cant see you
I don’t understand
Coz I cant feel you

In Your light I pray you’ll wake me here
And I know your eyes are searching me
Track Name: Lay
Lay
(Hobbs/Rerekura)

Something in the way you are
So alone feel so cold
It’s all I know its all inside….

Living my life for your fashion way
Living my life for your fascist way
I don’t like you anymore
It’s all I know its all inside us all

See out my way of ganging up
on innocence with you
Get out my way cause
today is just a toy
Lay on the line lay by my side
I wont deny I’ve forgot what’s true
Lay on the line lay by my side
I won’t deny I’ve forgot what’s true

Buried by dreams stacked on top of
my debt still keep bringing up the past
If I could only start again
Wouldn’t know how to begin
Its all I know its all inside us all

See out my way of ganging up
on innocence with you
Get out my way cause
today is just a toy
Lay on the line lay by my side
I wont deny I’ve forgot what’s true
Lay on the line lay by my side
I wont deny I’ve forgot what’s true

One face one fear one still alive

Lay on the line lay by my side
I wont deny I’ve forgot what’s true
Lay on the line lay by my side
I wont deny I’ve forgot what’s true
Track Name: Ascension of the Lesser Path
Ascension of the Lesser Path
(Hobbs/Williams)

There was a time when I lived for the empire
There was a time when I lived for the empire
Darkness starting my trials as a man
In scripted tests for a mind meant for magic
Meditation, contemplation comfort in my station,
ascent from damnation

My mentors spoke whispers around me
I saw the fear in their eyes

Progress unforeseen in their world
A barbarian's power unfurls

I would wake late at night to strange visions
Memories of friendship and love
At the reaches of what I remembered

My thoughts were unfocused, I honed them
For the empire has needs to be met
I donned the black robe with a purpose
I donned them and I knew
I was the greatest among them
few could withstand me
None would forget

Mind twisting magic’s swirled through the world
On top of the spire I stood
Raising my hands to the skies
Spectrums of energies
So dark and bright

My thoughts were unfocused, I honed them
For the empire has needs to be met
I donned the black robe with a purpose
I donned them and I knew
I was the greatest among them
few could withstand me
None would forget

In scripted tests for a mind meant for magic

I ascend to the greatest of all
I ascend to the greatest of all To the greatest of all
