about

Recorded live at 吉祥寺クレッシェンド (Kichijōji Crescendo), Tokyo, Japan Feb 21, 2017

credits

released March 14, 2017

The ocean is chaotic and ever-changing. Such is life. Such is 3-piece rock band Dolphins Don't Love. No two shows are alike, but they're always fun, in your face, and a good time in a dark sort of way.

Like the ocean itself.

We are recording a studio album live, the old fashioned way, this summer. We believe in a certain simplicity, and try to embody the essence of the song, the essence of the sea, and of life.

Drummer Phil Harris is the heart, Don Paris Schlotman on guitar and vocal is the mouth, and Danny Cambo on synth is the brain. Together they make Dolphins Don't Love.

Track Name: Float On By
Can't see the shore
And I don't wan your
Land no more
I know the score

うれがて (happy)
うがれて (roar)

I don't want war
And I ain't gonna whore
Myself no more
I know the score

Float on by
Float on by
Float on by
うがれて (roar)

Float on by
Float on by
ふがれて (blurred)
うかれて (float)
Track Name: Fly Away
Since the beginning of time
We have dreamed of moving
Fish sliding through primordial seas
Brachiating through tree overhead
On the savannah scanning for food

And once again I find myself in strange cities
Navigating a bizarre system of tunnels and roads
And bridges and rivers
To meet the faces of friends
Who I've never seen

We used to dream of flying
Now we don't even walk
We only move
In shiny metal boxes stretched to the horizon
To sit within room within room within room with room within room
Before we hurried home for
Boxed wine and curried meals

And then I remember
I remember...
I remember...

I could always fly away
Floating on the atmosphere
I could always fly away
Floating on the atmosphere

A cannonball!
Before I fall ...
Awake

Fly away
Fly away
Fly away

I could always fly away
Track Name: Bastards of Slaughter
We are all children
Immigrants, sons, and daughters
We are the bastards of slaughter
Waves cresting to the shore
On floating cotillion
Swirling systems
Micro conditions
Resistance engines roar

And we march back to the sea
We march back to the sea
Before we turn into machines
All going home
All going home
All going home

We're not just civilians
Cogs, sprockets, or pistons
On suicide missions
Fighting atomic wars
For countless generations
Immigrants, sons, and daughters
We are the bastards of slaughter
Our alma mater

And we march back to the sea
And we march back to the sea
We march back to the sea
Turn an inner beast
All going home
All going home
All going home

All going home
All going home

All going home
All going home
We're all going home
All going home
Track Name: Cayenne
We ran through the clouds
Oh, such a perfect day!
Never coming down
From the palisade
Rain falls in French
On the holiday
The heat of Cayenne
Melt our sins away

The river rushes past
Out to the open sea
Where nothing ever lasts
And we are truly free

We ran through the crowd
Oh! Such a perfect day!
Danced in motley gowns
For the big parade
The crumbled ruins of Cépérou
From the colony
Catch the sky's deep blue
And you give it back to me

The river rushing past
Out to the open sea
Where nothing ever lasts
And we are truly free
Nothing ever lasts
We are truly free

Ran through the clouds
On a winter's day
Buildings on the ground form a colonnade
Snow falls in New Amsterdam
On the holiday
But the heat of Cayenne
Melt our sins away

The river rushing past
Out to the open sea
Where nothing ever lasts
We are truly free
Track Name: The Ocean
海に落ちて、深海に沈んだ
波が僕を包んでいた
海底には自由があった
望むなら僕と来て
一緒に
さああ行こ!

And under the water there is a river
Cool, clear, life-giving water
At the bottom you can be
If you got the notion you should come with me
You should come with me!

Here we go!

The world breathes
And the ocean heaves
And you and I are just floating leaves

Fell into the ocean, I sank into the sea
Undulating motion washing over
At the bottom you can be
And if you got the notion
You should come with me
