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: Hymn To Sunshine
Lady Sunshine makes us grow
during the daytime
She makes us live
Track Name: Dark Peace
Bleak world forming now,
for inside it grows
Live it down, live it down

Crystal clear on my mind
Sharing smiles with the tide

Weighed down by nature's road
The ticking clock,
backwards time

Dark peace floating on
for inside it grows
Hold it up, Hold it up

Crystal clear on my mind
Sharing smiles with the tide
Track Name: Lady Sunshine
Lady Sunshine shine so bright
fills the flowers with delight

Lady Sunshine shine so bright
fills the children with delight

Please shine on us all
Please shine on us all

Let your light out
Let your love shine
Let your light out

Lady Moonshine shine so high
fills the people with delight
Lady Moonshine shine so high
fills the people up so bright

Please shine on us all
Please shine on us all

Let your light out
Let your love shine
Let your light out
Track Name: Saint Senara
Saint Senara loved a man,
though she a woman of the sea
Could not stay for long on land
to be with someone such as he

Will you drown for my love
See the stars up above the water
Will you drown for my love
See the stars up above the water

Went to church to hear him sing
hiding in the furthest pew
Waiting for that faithful day
when he would say to her I do

Will you drown for my love
See the stars up above the water
Will you drown for my love
See the stars up above the water

Finally he noticed her
and he said his feelings were the same
He went to the sea and the blue ocean
claimed his soul
Track Name: Wednesday Morning
Hello Hello
Where do we go?
We're on a road to nowhere
but we're still together.

We hold each other so tightly
look up at the blue night
We're not going, going anywhere at all

Hello Hello
Where do we go?
When the night is cold
and we're all alone?

We hold each other so tightly
look up at the blue night
We're not going, going anywhere at all

Hello Hello
A taste of love
Hello Hello
A taste of love
Track Name: Black Velvet
Dark Stars of unknowing
draw me into the night
Velvet swirls of crippled stars
emit into the void

Take me to a new high
I want to lose my mind

Black Velvet
Black Velvet

Fake stars who know it all
Lie to us
Broken faces who've seen it all
Cry to us

Take me from this low point
I wanna gain my mind

Black Velvet
Black Velvet
Track Name: Oasis of Time
Traveling over the water
Filling the sand of life
Streams of light form
Fields of time gone

Feeling the pull
of love
Eating the fruit
of death
Streams of light form
Fields of time gone

Streams of light form
Fields of time gone

Smile unto your cliff
Oasis of time
awaits you
Oasis of time
awaits you

Oasis of time
Track Name: In the Garden
Us two make a pair
seeking the world inside out
holding hands and sharing minds
seeking the world inside out

We go down to the garden
We go down to the flowers

And see the love
and smell the colors
In the garden

Us two make the time
seeking the truth inside out
Smokey woods and dying lanterns
the source of life is dying

It's time to stop
It's time to Smile
It's to live

We never realize

We go down to the garden
We go down to the flowers

And see the love
and smell the colors
In the garden
Track Name: World Can't Be Won
Yesterday crawled up on my doorstep
crying in shame
His bruises that his mother gave him
she needed someone to blame

The World Can't Be Won
The World Can't Be Won
Come together now
Love together now

The world can't be won
with any amount of guns
sing to death and dream
false idols claim to be king

The World Can't Be Won
The World Can't Be Won
Come together now
Love together now
Track Name: Mistress of Existence
Take this love of mine
keep it for yourself

Where does this heart of mine
go every night?
Deep down in the dark
we fall

Take this light of mine
lock it deep inside

Where does this heart of mine
go every night?
Deep down in the dark
we fall

I'll take this smile of yours
and have it for myself

Where does this heart of mine
go every night?
Deep down in the dark
we fall
Track Name: A Kiss (or Two)
Sunshine
You're my lady sunshine
and we're going out today

A bottle of wine and we're feeling
fine in the shade

Sunshine
You're my lady sunshine
and we're going out today

A kiss or two and we might make
it through the day

O Sunshine
You're my lady sunshine
and we're out today

A bottle of wine and we're feeling
fine in the shade
