BandAlternativeHip Hop

Translated from Japanese, literally means Endogenous Ethanol Intoxication caused by the fermentation of rice in the intestines. Mei Tei Sho's groove rarely walks a straight line, never genre specific, it skips around Afrobeat, shuffles with Hip Hop, tiptoes on Rock, crawls next to Dub and leaps ov

Lyrics

Paler

Written By: Bruce Sherfield

I read the invitation with more than slight anticipation
the table of dreams with sweet creams causes salivation
patience as I stare into the morbid light shining thru the
crystal's fine wine and, my life is on the diamond

my time is almost up, I gasp, asking for my last drop
from the winecup, the table of dreams is the mother
ship, and we its little astronauts

caught between the hallways of always and forever
and never can we go back to the days known as
yester

take a Ride

Written By: Bruce Sherfield

my blood is still warm even though I am gone
the pillow still holds my head in its arms
Our dreams may be real if we make them our gloves
the doors may be closed from wind not from love
their eyes start to tire as they strain for the shore
your heart holds a fire that's burned you before
dancing on a string and the plane was in the air
from wind not from love is how it stayed there

their eyes are still cold even though it is done
but the windows are bright with curious ones
his hand shakes with lies with no bullets in his gun
but he points it anyway at the furious ones
the beers have gone warm and the cars have turned brown
and someone's baby buried on the other side of town

her kiss on my cheek scrapes skin from the bone
I've become very wise because I haven't grown
we smoke and we drink and for seconds at a time
we become so insane, deep cuts on a lime,
I've never killed a man with a gun or a knife
but he blew his brains out when I melted his wife

take a ride with me now take a ride from love
everybody needs to see this

Immortal Gods

Written By: Jessica Martin

Blest as the immortal gods is he,
The youth who fondly sits by thee,
And hears and sees thee, all the while,
Softly speaks and sweetly smile.

'Twas this deprived my soul of rest,
And raised such tumults in my breast;
For, while I gazed, in transport tossed,
My breath was gone, my voice was lost;
Ma
Near to the death i am paler than grass

In dewy damps my limbs were chilled;
My blood with gentle horrors thrilled:
My feeble pulse forgot to play;
I fainted, sunk, and died away.
