Her name is Yoshimi
she's a black belt in karate
working for the city
she has to discipline her body

'Cause she knows that
it's demanding
to defeat those evil machines
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots eat me
Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots defeat me

Those evil-natured robots
they're programmed to destroy us
she's gotta be strong to fight them
so she's taking lots of vitamins

'Cause she knows that
it'd be tragic
if those evil robots win
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots eat me

Yoshimi

'Cause she knows that
it'd be tragic
if those evil robots win
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots defeat me

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots eat me
Yoshimi, they don't believe me
but you won't let those robots eat me

Yoshimi

I'm listening to the Yoshimi album right now!

Is it just me, or do they mix their albums too loud? No matter what CD player/headphones I use, "Do You Realize" sounds like it's just pushing into the red, and it always ticks me off. It's like they put just a hair of distortion into everything, to keep it sounding pristine or something.

Cut it out, Wayne! I want the beauty without the distortion!

Yoshimi is one of all my all time favorites. If you ever get a chance to see them live you must go. Unreal.

I can't wait for their movie Christmas on Mars. Written and directed by Wayne Coyne.

I'll be really surprised if that ever comes out. Hasn't he been working on that for about forever and a day?

I'd also recommend watching the Fearless Freaks documentary if you get a chance. It's pretty wonderful.

Isn't it great? I watched that in the last year and just loved it.

There's also a book by Jim Derogatis about the Lips that's pretty interesting. But it doesn't beat the documentary.

The Soft Bulletin is both an incredibly beautiful album as well as incredibly sad.

Love
In our life
Is just too viable to feel
For even a second
Without it

But life
Without death
Is just impossible to realise
Something is ending
Within us

Feeling yourself disintegrate

Soft Bulletin man absolutley incredible CD, nothing else quite like it. Race for the Prize , The Spark That Bled, Waitin' for a Superman, Feeling Yourself Disintegrate, The Spider Bite Song all 5 star songs.
Yoshimi also Fight Test, Yoshimi, Ego Tripping, Do You Realize, One More Robot...

Whoever likes what they hear download:
SUNSHIP BALLOONS
From their Ego Trippin EP I promise you you wont be dissappointed it's their most absolutely beautiful song
