3 brothers, one fiance and an assimilated son. Love, love love, and fun, fun, fun! Don't take yourself too seriously, 'coz we don't. And we play music to keep our bonds tight and cheer up our friends. That's all.

Biography

Band members Shahirah and Syarul met at the studio (Lab Rat Jam Studios, Section 13 Shah Alam) in 2004 where Syarul was working at the time and later bought over the studio for them to manage themselves. Syarul, frontman of another heavy rock band, needed an outlet for his more light and carefree type of music as, and so banded together with two of his other brothers – Syaril and Acik, his fiancé Shahirah, and long-time studio hand Kecik to form alternative-folkish-pop band Lab Rat. The music that came from this union? Carefree and full of life, maybe, but we’ll just let you listen and enjoy for yourself now, won’t we?

Lyrics

I Know

Written By: Raja Shahirah & Syarul Reza


I know what we've all been missing
Ooh I've gotta figure where it's coming from
Ooh I've gotta ticket with a lot of missions
Ooh I gotta figure where it's coming from

While we strive through all the tensions, what about colored selfs?
What is your take on the fact that your color is disarray?
And can you tell that our lives have a real shot
Can you tell if it's a scream or a whisper?
What would it take so it would be us,
How would you stand in their eyes, no disguise, till they notice that..

I know what we've all been missing
Ooh I've gotta figure where it's coming from
Ooh I've gotta ticket with a lot of missions
Ooh I gotta figure where it's coming from

Would you take the fire
And throw it when it starts to burn
Notice the pain's so much, oh why
Watching it come under light all lit
What if it rained and it spilled over
And everybody watched as you got soaked wet
Would you cry and call it a mistake?
Or work together, yeah you gotta love each other,
Work together!
Oooh...

I know what we've all been missing
Ooh I've gotta figure where it's coming from
Ooh I've gotta ticket with a lot of missions
Ooh I gotta figure where it's coming from

When you go, you go away
Where you go it's never far
When you go you're on your way
You've got it any way you like..

I know what we've all been missing,
Ooh I've gotta figure what I've been telling so many times before,
Coz' I fell in love with all my missions,
Guess I never knew what I was looking for,
What do you say?
I know, I've been telling you so many, many, many, many lies
These words, are not words that I'm feeling in this life..

I know what we've all been missing
Ooh I've gotta figure where it's coming from
Ooh I've gotta ticket with a lot of missions
Ooh I gotta figure where it's coming from
