Okay, so my band is known throughout Louisville as the "Coalition of the Illin'", and this is our illest and most epic song, "Fibrous Root System." I really love the lyrics to this one, so I thought I'd post them. We usually write lyrics on the spot. This was not an exception.

You can follow along with the lyrics while you listen to the song. This is what I recommend, because our three voices are layered, pretty much all the time. I tried to replicate that effect with parentheses, but I don't know how well it worked in print.

Plus, it's a pretty great song that I think you guys will enjoy. And you can download it if you like.

Peace,
Evan.


"Fibrous Root System"


Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...Take me!

To the cave on a hill. (Far away from here.)
There lives a bear in the cave. (Far away from here.)
In a cave, far away from here.
There lives a bear, far away from here.

The whales are dying.
The people are crying,
Because the whales don't know their fate.
It might be too late!

(Back-up Vocals)

The dolphins in the tuna nets
Scream my name! They scream,
"Ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-eeh!!!"
Ooo-oo-oo-ooo.

The grizzly bear of death!
The grizzly bear of death!
The grizzly bear of death!
The grizzly bear of death!
The grizzly bear of death!
The grizzly bear of death!
The grizzly bear of death!
The Whales! The Whales!
They're drowning in their sin! (Far away from here!)
They're drowning in their sin! (Far away from here!)
They're drowning in their sin! (Far away from here!)
They're drowning in their sin! (Far away from here!)
The whales are dying!
They're drowning in their sin!
They're drowning in their sin!
They're drowning in their sin!

(Back-up Vocals)

The whales on the beach!
The whales on the beach!
They scream my name! (Cannot breathe!)
They scream,
"Don't go to Sea World!"
"Don't go to Sea World!"
The whales on the beaches cannot breathe!

Break it down, old school!

That grizzly bear ate the biggest whale!
That grizzly bear ate the biggest whale!
That grizzly bear ate the biggest whale!
I used his skin for a jacket; it's jail!
Got sent down to a debtor's jail.
That grizzly bear ate the biggest whale!
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
That grizzly bear ate the biggest whale!

Will Tucker!
I wanted to ride the whales with you,
But you wouldn't!
You can't swim!
You can't swim!
You can't swim! Swim! Swim! Swim!

Grizzly bear of death!
Grizzly bear of death!
Drowning in their sin!
Drowning in their sin!
RAAAHHHHH!
RAAAHHHHH!
RAAAH RAAAH!
RAH RAH RAH RAH!

The whales are dying.
The people are crying,
Because the whales don't know their fate.


All the candles have gone out,
All the people are gone.
It's just you, and I,
And this here apple pie.
We're gonna make it through the night,
Somehow. Somehow.
Some how.
Some
how.

beautiful. probably my favorite piece by you. its just blended together so well, and absolutely astounding for lyrics. the message is absolutely overwhelming, as well, though i suppose its subject to many interpretations.

i had many, but one was of global warming. the apple pie symbol was just so powerful.

good job and keep writing man.

haha kazoo.
anyway, those lyrics.
well I don't think they're very good.
but not bad for improv.
I think as far as writing them out, I'd avoid all the repetition.
and I'm guessing that they're supposed to be kind of silly....I think.

The vocal layers were pretty cool though, although also kind of hilarious.
especially deep voice guy.
