AKUDAMA's Debut Release


released May 1, 2005



all rights reserved


AKUDAMA Brooklyn, New York

One day, a guava made love to a banana, and an avocado was born. Upon the avocado's first attempt at rolling, it was squashed. With the cracking of its pit came the most magnificent sound, so fiercely exasperating that it caused the banana to kill the guava, make a boat out of it, and sail to America to start a rock band called Acucumba... which sounds strikingly similar to "AKUDAMA". ... more

Track Name: Akudama Come Out
So this is what I'm supposed to be
a spirit in the form of a tree
I'll climb up to the top of me
and dream away with you
The clouds explode
You say you never wake up that early
You ought to know that
at dawn you can feel like an angel
So this is what we're supposed to do?
I don't know. See the clouds explode
Track Name: Sunshine In American Backyards
Everyone come outside feel warm and strong
You can stare at the sun, but not for too long
Sunshine in American backyards
Sunshine right in your backyard
Sun lands promptly on your face
Track Name: September
I remember this September
You were there, water side
I was calm, you were kind
We looked in each others eyes
and knew that we should talk a while
The smell of your hair that night
the sparkle in your eyes
makes me feel so bright, blind
Like living in another time.
I love you
I remember this September
Track Name: Knocking
I lie awake and plan for tomorrow
I'll go into town
and find a disguise to
lose all those men in the crowd of faces I know
Men beside dogs with their noses lower then low
I'll plan for tomorrow
I'll go and find
the best old barbershop
Shave and a haircut are well overdue now yes
I lie awake and plan for tomorrow
Mister how much for the hat and coat?
How much for this gun and boat?
Protect me and sail me away
I hear the hounds barking again
They've caught my scent, how could they?
Assisted with tall well dressed men
They're reaching for their pockets and I think 'let this begin'
I reach for mine. Bang Bang Bang Bang
All shots piercing my skin
I fall into the river. Breathing blood and oxygen
The water fills me up. Breathing blood and oxygen
Track Name: Night Club
Yeah we can get up alright
Have just one more drink with me
Start another dance party
I don't wanna go to sleep tonight
If you've got the groove inside your shoe
then get on the floor and do what we do
If you've got the groove you better move
Going to my house always on time
They're so on time
Track Name: Beer On The Wall
It don't feel like Christmas around here
I'm alone with my thoughts and bottles of beer
I can't get the feeling if you're not here
I'll just bet on nothing for next year
'I'm not yelling'
I can't stand you
We have not been in the same room in forever
Track Name: The 5AM Wave
Dive in to the deep end
Grab on to my leg if you start to drag
Meet me under water
Try and guess the tune that I sing to you
Reach the surface. Yeah
Reach the surface. Let us swim
Gotta hit the sack now
Gotta wake up late, catch the 5am wave
Come on people ride together
Track Name: Interlude
Track Name: Go Home
We sit inside your car
We say the same things five-hundred times
You ought to go home
Home home home
And you kill me with your words,
but I can take it pretty baby
Track Name: Never Again
Again. You say 'never again'
But what's to stop you
You'll do it again
Your hands are hot and red
You say never again
Your hands are hot and red
and you're slamming doors on faces
You're slamming doors on me
Your gonna catch your death and it's like a fucking race
You slam the door, you slam the door on me
Catch your death it's like a fucking race man
Track Name: No Moon Out
There's no moon out tonight
Oh wait there it goes
A bit cold on the porch
I sit in silence alone
Cause none of my friends want to be here
and think about things that I want to talk about
Can't say I blame them I'm getting kind of tired
I think I'm gonna go inside and lay down
Drift away to a brand new day
I'll go that way you go this way
Were gonna meet just where we end up
Meet in the future say 'what a small world'
Life's so sweet, can I fill your cup?
Oh no you don't
Ask me where I've been
Ask me how I've been
No you don't ask me what I'm doing
Track Name: Crescent Moon Drops
I'm too tired to play your game
Fade away
I'm too tired to play this game
You fade away
Moving up and down
Longing outside towns
But I stay where my future leads me
I'm well awake and up to date
I speak for friends, I have no powers over them
For I too am rusting away
And she said...
We go up and down
Track Name: Cool Kids Stay Out Past 10PM
Cool kids stay out late
Good kids get the grades
She's not one of us
Who are we to say that?
I guess we'll never know
You'd be surprised just how far I'd go to know
And I can't move and I can't see
My eyes roll back into my head
And I remember dreaming
In my dreams no one cares
They never want to go home
And in these dreams they all stare
Because I am beautiful alone
How much should I pay
To make you look this way?
Can't stop, won't stop running
If I stop now I won't get my girl
Don't stop, don't stop running
If you stop now you won't get the girl
