Grab some grapes and leaves man you can never tell when you'll have to change your face and hide your trophies well / coming down the mountain going to your home the village has evacuated now you gotta roam / your feet could start to moan and your eyes don't see too clear the darkest dreams could come and shake your faith to steer / remember the sun all from memory close your eyes and run circles round it's enemies / remember the sun before you awake remember all the reasons and bake it into your cake / Then we're gonna come over bring the coconut flakes we're gonna get stoned with you laugh at your mistakes / I know it's been hard to take and I know you wanna run just try to stay in one place and have a little fun / I know it's been hard to take and I know you wanna run just try to stay in one place and dance before it's done / dada
Foreign legions all the cost to send for me now to tend to you now / I holed up from the shots so send for me now to tend to you now / I can hear you breathing I want your breath I wanna travel far / If I see you leaving I wanna leave too I'll help you pack the car / Because I know all the carriages approaching will melt under your star / Inna Gadda Da Vida send for me now to tend to you now / I will never call your bluff I'll send for you now to tend to me now / I can see you floating don't ever come down I love your shadow / I'll store your paintings in all my blankets i'll never let them go / because the colors burn so bright they could melt all of the stuff / Carry you up on my back send for me now to tend to you now / to the million dollar bash I'll send for you now to tend to me now / and in this instant I will vow to never let your beauty out my sight
I was afloat for awhile, on Albert Ayler’s ship, How the notes they dipped, into the bebop sea, til they got to me, In my dreams I could go, to all the shows I missed, the ones where we kissed, and rolled on the floor, let’s do it some more There you are, Stand-in like a shiva from afar, Hands couldn’t show you who you are, call right out, showed up like it’s moded for the bout, revvin’ up, there’s a revenue that you’ve been stickin’ out, Mamacita ahhhhhh hands free, loaded like a star Sure enough, the platform keeps on changing all your turf, Call for your Manatees to hurt , Show me up, I’ll try to follow every single word Blowing up, This explosion can’t be heard Mamacita haaaaaaaaaaa is it Damsel or Demon? Cross My Heart I think It was some cat who said It’s the Space Bees between notes what a beautiful joke i kinda like it the most, john cage’s ghost In My dreams i could go to any place or show, ah it’s all fine I’ll keep it with mine, These Dreams
I fall into the sea, Chamomile Call me better See what you mean to mean to me Chamomile call me better It’s a language that I used to know, I’m surprised we are so utensil It’s a combination of the high Phone on the whole book switch Kinda mean home letter Ah it’s a magazine I could see Call me better I could let our languishing awhile We could let our Lion’s Share all Smile We could make our maker get me high
Top of the Holly Jolly My Holy Collar is falling Off Holdin our missed equations of long invasions of many parts All Part Of Me I Love You in That Leotard All Parts Of Me All Lined Up In the Color Bar Call off my intuition my inhibition is Corn Dry come and lay down with monsters like I have and see why All Parts of me are falling for you and here’s why All Parts of Me Wanna share that shelf life All parts of me are falling for you and here’s why All Parts of me wanna share their shelf life
I sailed from midtown To give a smurf a crown I bet you a cow Says a gorilla to a sisters ya heard Hold down your fleece hold down Lets save that tone from 9 to 5 I laced your bagel I put dollars in your bed Id like to meet yo mama but thats all I said you said I sold my state of mind I sold my legs all time I sold my legs all time I like to meet your mama All those soapbox conversations I beg to differ What the toll booth guy once said I never see you come over I scold myself so bad All the fallout aint that bad I sold my banging drum I sold my tale One out of Five
Battlezone by Love As Laughter I see that I wanna be good and then I mess around Bad Boys be Bad you see but you never seen this clown go bad seed bad scene a battle zone bad seed a bad scene a battle zone Ah, what did you think? It’s Darwin’s mess! Well, It’s a bad disease that you will probably get Bad seed Bad scene battlezone Bad seed bad scene battle zone
I was in amber Did you see me when I melted down Did you like me when I stuck to the ground Will you love me when I get out I was concreted Did you see my head stick out the ground Did you like me as a statue Will you love me when I get out


In 2006 Sam wanted to start putting together a new Love As Laughter record, and for touring sake have some recorded material.This EP (almost an album's worth) was formed from demos to have some representation of the new stuff at the time. A lot of it would end of on the album HOLY from 2008. We're proud that's it's available, and even PROUDER of it's lasting quality for ourselves, our friends, and fans.
