    Okay, so if I saw a band like Boston's Rye Pines in high school it would have blown my mind. Thankfully that didn't happen cuz I like having a brain in my head but that's neither here nor there. Heavy shit for you weirdos. Ugh chug.

Quake! Quake! Shaking up the coast of Japan
Sending big waves out in a fan
I start on the opposite side of the globe
We meet in the middle at San Francisco
Ride a cable car on the Mason line
Everything in North Beach looks alright
This is your morning wake up
Though it’s 5 AM
It’s on the news show, it’s on the radio
Run to wherever you can
I want to go to the beach
Japanese tourists taking photos of the sea
I just wanted to to wade out to my waist
I never thought I would die in this place
Cold salt drags and pulls me
I’m swept off my feet
There’s white foam over my head these days
I think I taste saline
I roll with the urchins on the seabed floor
All my neighbors have shells, I don’t need air no more
Even the white rocks by the bridge ask me
‘What was it like to live?’
