Lyrics

1. Dance or Die / 跳舞还是死

dance or die or dance or die or dance or die or
dance dance dance dance
dance dance dance dance dance dance dance dance


2. Nong Naozi / 侬脑子

侬脑子
侬脑子
侬脑子怀特了


3. Mr. Jones / Jones先生

some fellow sicks were saying to me
they saw my girlfriend walking down the street
she wasn't alone that's what they said
she's walking with another brain dead

i follow her scent and get really close
her massive friend looks really gross
the closer i get i realize
it's mr. jones, what a surprise

she took my heart
and threw it on the ground
and now the only sound
it makes is dead

i took her brain
and now she's lost and found
she follows me around
she's here to stay

why would you go and do this to me
i stayed with you so willingly
don't push me back it's not my fault
let's just stop and join the assault

you had my heart right in your hand
while you hold it you should understand
i looked in your head and took your brain
mr. jones won't last, he's burned in flames

she took my heart
and threw it on the ground
and now the only sound
it makes is dead

i took her brain
and now she's lost and found
she follows me around
she's here to stay

games are for children

sometimes the truth is racist
look at the pretty faces
don't play games and just
walk away


4. Monkey Island / 猴岛

14 monkeys in the sand
13 monkeys with fruits in hand
one of them was curious they can see
playing with sticks and strings and leaves
one of the 13 has his heart
that's why what he's building he has to start
building these wings to take them away today

加油朋友飞飞飞
加油朋友飞飞飞
加油朋友飞飞飞
they will leave together here's what they say

she put down her fruit to give him a hand
12 monkeys left sitting in the sand
getting curious they climb the trees
they become jealous at what they see
starting a revolt they break their wings
the 12 believe they've broken their dreams
the 2 stay strong and start again today

加油朋友飞飞飞
加油朋友飞飞飞
加油朋友飞飞飞
they will leave together here's what they say

不要害怕不见不散


5. Lament of the Lilacs / 慨叹的紫丁香


6. Mama / 妈妈

妈妈从天堂你来了
妈妈从在路来了
妈妈你的眼睛看我
跳跳见见
妈妈你的手捡起我
妈妈终于妈妈云消雾散

mother there's food but i'm starving
妈妈来
mama it's warm but i'm shivering
妈妈来 hold me one last time

妈妈
妈妈来


7. My Monster / 我的怪兽

oh this monster's under my bed
he wants in my little head
i can not run and hide
he takes me by surprise

oh this monster's in my head
oh this monster needs to be fed
his favorite color is what he said
all i heard was red red red

he says the red paint is right
like the bull he loathes the fight
oh he will not grit his teeth
hush these screams he won't deceive

oh this monster's in my head
oh this monster needs to be fed
his favorite color is what he said
all i heard was red red red

oh my monster doesn't want to fight
he just want's to turn on the light
not one wish of wanting people dead
he just want's to paint the walls red

oh this monster's in my head
oh this monster needs to be fed
his favorite color is what he said
all i heard was red red red

say goodbye and nighty night
oh my monster's tucked in tight
he's crawled back under the bed
until tomorrow he sees red red red


8. Stinky Tofu / 臭豆腐

她吃我豆腐
我吃她的
她吃我豆腐
我吃她的

不要吃醋
我有臭豆腐
不要吃醋
她有臭豆腐


9. Yao Chi Liang / 要吃粮

要吃粮找自羊
要吃粮找自羊

吃吃吃吃
吃粮吃粮吃粮吃粮
吃不下吃不下吃不下

hey

要吃粮找自羊
要吃粮找自羊


10. The Puppeteer / 木偶的人

ghost of the past rise from the sea
reborn in ash built from memory
cruelly disfigured brilliantly deformed
an abomination from the earth stillborn

oh you had us scared live your nightmare
don't you dare you stage the play
now we will all pay

now that i can see you can't fool me
don't you speak just a drop
and we'll never stop

now we die as criminals
hold me in your arms
goodnight

now we die as criminals
hold me in your arms
goodnight

Further Information

Named after Les Claypool's very own brand of wine, their second full length album is a heavier effort than their first CD. You can still catch the hints of catchiness and lovability that was lined throughout their first CD back in 2010. It is to be released on August 17, 2012.
