Don't Trip

Written by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitars by Greg Colson

 

I thought I saw the bottom once

But I just kept falling...

 

Don't trip in this Universe

it's quite a drop

Far as it stretches

You might never stop

 

You get used to it

Over decades

The gentle wind against your face

 

Don't trip in this universe

it's quite a drop

Far as it stretches

You might never stop

Fortify

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitar by Josh Rozenboom

 

No one is looking out for you

That's why it's positive

You have your own eyes

 

Fortify your side

Fortify your side

Against your enemies

They squeeze through every crack

Because you leave yourself open to attack

Fortify your side, fortify your side

 

It's impossible you have anything in common with them

You could never be allies

So fortify your side, fortify your side

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do You Make a Sound?

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitar by Josh Rozenboom

 

Buy a rocket

Be self-sufficient

You've got the strongest feet to stand on

All you need is an atmosphere where you can breathe

So you don't have to stop speaking

 

When no one is around do you make a sound we should care about?

 

Can you build a bridge to an island in the middle of your own mind

If it's possible you will find a way to make the other suckers pay for it

 

When no one is around do you make a sound we should care about?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Come In

Composed and Performed by Shane Matsumoto

Additional percussion by Cody Barney

Guitar by Dan Michols

 

Hello? Someone there? Is it you... is it death?

Enter, make yourself at home...

I know you've known sadness, sorrow and pain

Taste a little bit of mine

Perhaps sharing stories will help us feel connected

(Perhaps not...)

 

Come in...

Come and watch me lose it all

Come in,

Watch it all crumble down

Come in, come in, come in

Feel the pain

Or leave all the same

Come in, come in, come in

 

Make yourself at home... come in, won't you?

Come in

 

What's It Like?

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Bass by Jimmy Wilson

 

What's it like being so fat, sitting on my chest?

I only know what it's like lying on my back

I'd like to hear more about your experience

I'd like to hear more about you...

 

Everywhere I Go

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Bass by Bill McKillop

Guitar by Josh Rozenboom

 

Stand up against injustice

Until you build yourself into something just as thick

Everywhere I go, Everywhere I go it's the same

Everywhere I go it's the same ol' thing, with another name

 

Your side is the good side

You're so nice and polite about being so right

Everywhere I go, Everywhere I go it's the same

Everywhere I go it's the same 'ol thing, with another name

 

Laughing at It

Composed by Michael Saul and Shane Matsumoto

Guitar by Josh Rozenboom

Bass by Jimmy Wilson

 

Tell me that story again

The one where you have my interest at heart

And I'll try... hard

Not to come apart laughing at it

 

I read the texts

All the redactions and notes in the margins

And I tried... hard

Not to fall apart laughing at it

 

Another Kind of Ignorance

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitars by Greg Colson

 

"Rely on your imagination"

Every solution hides inside

"Look it up and you'll understand"

Knowledge is another kind of ignorance

 

"Rely on common sense"

'Cause nature pays attention to your intuition

"Look it up and you'll understand"

Knowledge is another kind of ignorance

What Doesn't Kill You

Written by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitars by Josh Rozenboom

Bass by Bill McKillop

 

What doesn't kill you

Might make you wish you were dead

What doesn't kill you

Might leave you bed-ridden

On your back drawing breath through a straw

What doesn't kill you might break every bone in your body

 

What doesn't kill you

Might leave you close enough

With awful pictures in your head

And never let you forget how much you want to die

What doesn't kill you just laughs and leaves you half alive

 

What Comes Around?

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitar by Josh Rozenboom

 

What comes around when there's not enough to go around?

You can take your cake

We don't want more than crumbs

What comes around when there's not enough to go around

One Toe (Over The Line)

Composed by Michael Saul & Shane Matsumoto

Guitar by Josh Rozenboom

Bass by Bill McKillop

 

I like you just fine

Planted safely on your side

Far enough away

I can't smell your breath

When you say "hello"

 

One toe over the line

I can't abide

One toe over the line

 

It's not a matter of feet or millimeters

But molecules

Degrees of sub-atomic measurements

at least

One toe over the line...

I was thinkin'...

How unthoughtful of me!
I don't have the training
Or the expertise
I'm stealing jobs from the brain police

 

I'm sorry, I will stick to the story
I'm sorry, I will stick to the story

 

Unfettered by the need to reason
I'm free to lift things
Sing more songs about nonsense
Stand in line

 

I'm sorry, I will stick to the story
Don't worry, I'm a company boy
Don't worry, I'll be stuck in history soon


Yea... ooooh
