about

The Striped Bananas Ann Arbor, Michigan

Through Duncan's sunglasses is the darkened world of
psychedelic music that is birthed through his guitar.

Chantelle's thunderous bass playing and angelic singing make her a contrast within herself.

The bearded drummer, Lowden, smashes his drums with so much tribal fury his hands often turn crimson red.

Track Name: Bad Hand Mackenzie
Bad Hand Mackenzie riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man

A front seat to a changing world
blood flows through the land
a hero of the union
but a friend to no man

Bad Hand Mackenzie riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man

Bad Hand Mackenzie riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man

Your life came tumbling down
now a bed is your command
stricken by madness
you're a paralyzed man

Bad Hand Mackenzie riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man

Bad Hand Mackenzie riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man

Bad Hand Mackenzie he's riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man

Bad Hand Mackenzies' riding through the desert
Bad Hand Mackenzie the myth and the man
Track Name: Girl You Got Me Feeling Alright
We'll always be together
through the flames of night
Love and visions seem so bright

Girl you got me feelin alight
Do you feel the same as me tonight?

Majestic smoke rising
Through the face of time
I checked my mind at the door

With a shower of rain
Feelin my heart beat
Silent visions seem the same

Girl you got me feelin alright
do you feel the same as me tonight
Track Name: Reaching For Love
Reaching for something
Never know what it is
Is it on earth
or in my head?
Never learned these things

Taking me into the light
Drawing me into the night

Love is what we have
Its all that we need
Take me into your
Open Heart

Searching for anything
to get me through these long nights
is it in my control?
Is it in your control?

Taking me into the light
Drawing me into the night
Track Name: Runaway
As I walk along
I wonder what went wrong with our love
a love that was so strong

and as I still walk on I think of the things we've done together
while our hearts were young

I'm walkin in the rain
tears are falling and I feel the pain
wishing you were here by me to end this misery

And I wonder
Why why why wonder
Why
Why Why Why
she ran away
and I wonder where she will stay
my little runaway run run run runaway

I'm walkin in the rain
tears are falling and I feel the pain
wishing you were here by me to end this misery

I wonder
Why why why wonder
Why
Why Why Why
she ran away
and I wonder where she will stay
my little runaway run run run runaway
Track Name: Captain Merwin
Hey Captain Merwin
Hey captain Merwin
Where are you going, today?
Oh

Hey Captain Merwin
Hey Captain Merwin
Why did you leave us in space?
Why did you leave us in space?

Come back for us now
Don't leave us stranded
Come back for us now
Don't leave us stranded

Come back for us
Don't leave us stranded
Track Name: Feel It Now
All across the land
a show of ghosts at hand
a field of soft white trees
with bright red leaves

I've never seen this before
I've never felt this before
I've never heard this before
and I've never seen this before

All across the sea
some people like me
a wave of white foam
with dark green smoke

and I've never seen this before
and I've never felt this before
I've never heard this before
and I've never seen this before

all across the land
a show of ghosts at hand
a field of soft white trees
with bright red leaves
purple mountain trees
feel my heart on my sleeve

feel it now
feel it now
my head's on the ground
my head's on the ground
Track Name: Open Eyes
The sun shines over my blue face
in such a weird way

Talons of gold
pierce my eyes
in such a strange way

Take me through
open my eyes
for I am lost
forever more

The night beats away my soul
in such a weird way
But the man of my heart
keeps dark away

Take me through
open my eyes
for I am lost
forever more

Take me through
open my eyes
for I am lost
forever more
Track Name: She's Free
She's free

Dead flowers in her hair
fell through the sky in despair

Blindly we wander free
in the asylum of time's key
Broken wings learn to fly
crying eyes change their tide

She's free

Dead dreams in my mind
leaves me nothing to find
Red roses in her eyes
she's so lonely, she's so kind

Broken wings learn to fly
crying eyes change their tide

She's free
Track Name: The Carnival
Cosmic carnival is where we meet
We spend all day there traveling through space
It's time to face the world
everything swirls around this world

Its all the same in the cosmic carnival
you can stay as long as you'd like

It's so beautiful
It's so beautiful

Cosmic carnival is where we meet
you can stay as long as you would like
