about

Surprise Attack Washington, D.C.

We got the band back together! After 7 years apart we reformed our high school band from 2008. With Danny on Bass, Ian on Drums, Jeremy on Keys, Tom on Guitar, and vocal duties shared, we're approaching music with an entirely different perspective with a huge focus on live improvisation. Hope you enjoy! ... more

Track Name: Far East Jam
Verse 1:
I spent my youth in the forest, wading in the salt pools
Underneath the watchful eye of one made blind by the fog of fools
By the fog of fools

Bound by these chains that still exist, we managed to persist
My brothers and I ran for our lives, and now we ride
We ride

Chorus:
I know, (I know) it’s not far to the promised land
Let’s go, (Let’s go) come along and take my hand
I know, (I know) it’s not far to the promised land
So sing along with me, we’re at the heart of the far east jam

Verse 2:
I spent my youth in the desert, on the back of a pale horse
Blinded by sandstorms I came across the cave of forms, where I began to lose my mind
My mind

Emerging on the other side I caught my stride and began to move forward
My brothers reappeared as the city neared we had finally arrived
It’s all right

Chorus
Track Name: Jungle Cat
Verse 1:
When She’s in a jungle cat mood I’m jungle cat food
Can’t feel the music but she walkin in the groove
Stalking her prey sneaking along bobbing her tail to the beat of the song
Eyes like diamonds shining in the night
With her there’s no flight, just fight, alright?
So sleep tight
She’s on the prowl tonight

Chorus:
Jungle Cat
Whats the word?
Jungle Cat
Chase the Bird

Don’t open up that window, you’ll never know where she’ll go
Then I’ll be asking you for Momo

Verse 2:
Grinding away when she really wants to play
But there’s no time for loving til the end of the day
Starts to get pissy, think she might miss me
Walk down the stairs and who do I see
Starin’ thru my soul from her cardboard throne, she don’t condone bein all alone
Til I give her a hug and then she starts to bug out
Her doing her is what she’s all about

Chorus

Verse 3:
Here’s the truth, I’m a jungle cat too
Stayin up all night is a thing I do
Nocturnal by nature, I love a good laser
And dank catnip got me like ooh
Just a fine feline, speaking my mind
With a rhyme slightly out--- of--- time
If you’re a funky cat, let me know where you at
But not now cause it’s time for a nap.
Track Name: How to Be
Verse 1:
Drop your notion preconceived
Express yourself, and be at ease
Open your mind and receive
Open wide

Don’t fear emotion unknown
Once a crying child, you learn to flow
Trust you’ll find your way to go
Trust you’ll find

Chorus:
And it really doesn’t matter what you think it’s all about
And we really don’t know where we’re gonna go so we gotta just be in the moment
With its twists and turns it’s easy to want out
But we take it bit by bit, through the good, through the shit always knowin there’s an end to it all so we live

Without fear, we fight the anxiety for what could come. So we live
Connected to this world, to each other to our friends that really matter. So we live
There’s a rhyme, there’s a reason that we gonna just keep on being
And we ain’t never ever comin down

Verse 2:
Retract from this physical world
Sittin back, the beauty of it all unfurls
Think to slow down, the end is for sure
Take your time

Chorus
Track Name: Far East Jam (Acoustic)
Verse 1:

We ride

Chorus:
I know, (I know) it’s not far to the promised land
Let’s go, (Let’s go) come along and take my hand
I know, (I know) it’s not far to the promised land
So sing along with me, we’re at the heart of the far east jam
