Biography

Rock band from Sarasota Florida that incorporates all sorts of genres & styles in their songwriting, encapsulating it into an overall signiture shell that is Super Zen Machine.

Influenced by a wide variety of acts such as: The Jimi Hendrix and the Experience, The Doors, Faith No More,
Sevendust, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Frusciente, Living Colour, Parliament Funkadelic, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, They Might Be Giants, Simon and Garfunkle, The Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Radiohead, RUSH, SRV, Carlos Santana, Stanley Clarke, James Taylor, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Sublime, & The Mars Volta are just some of them .

The art direction tells a cool little sci-fi story, with great imagery, that the band will soon be using as live visuals on stage.

The project was started in early 2008 by Matthew Nunnery, whom had quit playing and writing music two years prior due to being disenchanted with the music business as a whole. He changed his mind when he suddenly found
himself to be a father and went on a writing spree that molded itself into Super Zen Machine, a concept that
inadvertently became a device of sorts that enabled him to write without limitation.

In 2011 Dave Wooten (Percussion) & Mike Pizza (Bass) jumped onboard to complete the group.

Our goal is to tour the world & be musically free, without restriction.

Lyrics

Small Ponds

Written By: Matthew Glenn Nunnery

I can't wait to feel...
The other realm in the real
I had to take the red pill
And shred...my...fingers...this time
The sharks that circle my spine
Smell this fresh blood of mine

Still I wake up in the noon-time
Find my axe, and get ready to fly
Within this house of blues I'm falling
Within this small pond I will dive

Heyaaaahhh......you keep pushing me up, you keep pushing me up,
To the surface above, I can't breathe too many sharks in this sea
Heyaaaahhh......you keep pushing me up, you keep pushing me up
To the surface above, I can't breathe just watching all the big fish feed

Never ending refrain
Oh how I'd like to just play
Something different today
And let my fingers collide
With all the sharks at my side
A harmony of the tide

Porcelain Dolls

Written By: Matthew Glenn Nunnery

Why cant you give me, just a little respect.
Why do you have to inject, your plastic into my head.
Oh mother how I've tried, appealing to your pride.
In the end it's myself that you hide...

Everyday it seems I'm left to dance alone.....
Everyday I just fail you, fail you, fail you, oh.....
Why are the things I do so not enough.....
Must be the plastic that binds you, binds you, binds you up.

You can be any thing you want to , except.
You were so pretty back then, what happened above your neck.
To drill me to the core, with words of bitter scorn.
Cause I won't be some prostitot whore...............

Everyday it seems I'm left to dance alone.....
Everyday I just hate you, hate you, hate you, more.....
Wondering why the way I am is not enough.....
Is it the plastic that binds you, binds you, binds you up...

How could you just sit, and spit another regret.
Out at my porcelain head, I shatter, you go to bed.
The Valium by your side, the riddle in my mind.
Hollowed out, there's no God, and I find...

Wake Up

Written By: Matthew Glenn Nunnery

Realize......
Through fathers eyes.......
All the lies........
They try then to disguise.....
Killing spree......
What there will be......
Oh...if we don't see.....
Wake up and be free......

Feeling the wave......
Crashing down on me, so easily......
I've been waiting so long......
For the ones who talk cheap......to retreat......
And stop preying on the weak......

Wake up to shake up this world you're living in....
Wake up to give up the love you hold within......

Evenly......
Spreading me.......
Into the breeze.....
So to please.
The heaven sent......
You chose to represent......
Why can't you repent.......
The blood you made descend.......

Feeling the wave......
Crashing down on me, so easily......
I've been waiting so long......
For the ones who talk cheap......to retreat......
And stop preying on the weak......

Wake up to shake up this world you're living in....
Wake up to give up the love you hold within......
Wake up to shake up this world you're living in....
Wake up to give up the love you hold within......

What It Is

Written By: Matthew Glenn Nunnery

Kicked down, K-Town
Time to take another funking round
On this evil playground...
Oh yeah....woe is me, woe is me.....
I'm rising up from this heart attack and...
I think it's time the people see the machine bleed...
Till the Earth man before you seed......

Can't believe everything that you see....
You've gotten lost within your relaxation
Activate the tube...and let it be, let it be.....
Empty leather at a new gas station...
It's time to break away, no time to be easy......
Stop the war man before you bleed....

Everything is what it is until you get the balls to make it something
Everything is what it is until you get the nerve............
Everything is what it is until you get the balls to make it something
Come on gather round instead of feeling down and get what you deserve...

Gotta get all...gotta get all...that you want....

Homeless man walking by...
Says an act of God had took him
For an interesting ride....yeah
Water up above the waist he pleads...
For the love and help of you and me......
The better off people living paycheck to paycheck...
Can barely afford to give and yet believe.....

Everything is what it is.......

Gabby Gabby Gabby (Hey)

Written By: Matthew Glenn Nunnery

Gabby can you understand these words
Tell you a little something that I heard
There will never ever be a sweeter thing
An ever loving light, into my heart you bring
Oh will you be the one to pull upon the bow
Unraveling all we think we know

Go...go get it....Gaby, Gabby, Gabby, hey
Go...ahead...the Gabby, Gabby, Gabby, way

Gabby never mind the voice that serves
Negativity into your nerves
Make us understand there is another way
To open up the heart find love and give away
Oh will you be the one to pull upon the bow
Unraveling all we think we know

Go...go get it....Gaby, Gabby, Gabby, hey
Go...ahead...the Gabby, Gabby, Gabby, way
