BandRockBlues

Feel-Good Rock, Blues and Funk that will shatter your mind before warming your soul.

Biography

They've packed the Blind Pig, frequented TC's Speakeasy, played for kids with heart problems, in back yards, in the rain, in the snow, on a river with swarming bugs, broken strings, and were the only white band to play at the Ann Arbor African American Festival.

Such a range of fanship reveals the underlying variety of influences driving Comatose Collin. The thoughtful musicianship of the four bandmates comes from a combination of classical training, passion, and self-taught tricks, and results in the well-written songs on their 2005 debut Happy Every Day.

Lyrics

The Colony

Written By: Nick Yribar

I blink at the wall
I Stare into space
The trigger's as cold as the barrel was
Light from a street lamp
And holding your face
Looking at angels and there I was

She'd be the powder
and I'd be the Lead
A colony braces while cannons sound
She'll make excuses
While I make a amends
We'll make all this ours
Then we'll burn it down.

Would you hold me down?
When the bubbles start to rise?
Cause I need you around.
Before the hope that's in me dies

Platonic displacement
like holes in the wall
A clocktower's lit the candle was
A colony weeps like it would
lessen the fall
What I couldn't tell you is
where I was

Would you hold me down?
When the bubbles start to rise?
Cause I need you Around
Before the good that's in me dies

I blink at the wall
I stare into space
Her legs are as long
as the cannon was
Darkness through street lamps
and holding her face
Demons are laughing
and there I was.

Would you hold me down?
When the bubbles start to rise?
Cause I need you around
So I can kill this hate these lies
Would you hold me down?
When the bubbles start to rise?
Cause I need you around
Before the love that's in me dies.
