Richard RR If you like Hawkwind you will like Tadpoles! Hot live album! Favorite track: At Least I'm Not Jonathan Carver (live).
Drop down and see it fall away 
Climb up catch what they say 
Drop down and be there fall away 
Get up race you to the day
 The only way Get a little closer to the tone 
Vibrate for everyone you know
 When you stop you've never been away 
Get up race you to the day 
The only way
When I feel
I want to touch 
When I do
I do too much 
When I go
I go too far 
What I want
I want more I'm going to last a lifetime I'm feeling frail 
Dead afraid 
Trapped, earthbound 
Peace flew away
 Arm in a sling 
My broken wing
 This day is gone 
Thistle in my palm I'm going to last a lifetime Greet the new day 
Feel a new way 
Figure time
 With math of mine 
I glow and flow
 I frost the glass 
Feel electric 
Big and blasting Hobo a train 
I can't fail
 Boxcar free 
Chug down the rails 
Ride on wheels 
Learn and yearn 
I'm on fire 
Feel me burn I'm going to last a lifetime
Aren't you tired of coming down 
You want to float not be around 
Aren't you tired 
Aren't you tired 
Aren't you tired like really wired His name appeared in lights that day 
Her neon dress began to fray 
Don't you know what its like 
Don't let it be an oversight When you're lazy lying on some grass 
Following all the dusty paths
 You watch the sky slide past your face
 When morning comes you've won the race 
Then parachute land on the floor 
You hit the ground feeling sore 
Your knees buckle but you give it more 
Step inside your first balloon 
Blow it up and make it bloom
you're taking my mind 
you're taking my money 
you're taking your time 
you're baking my mind 
you're making me funny 
you're making me blind 
you're just like a train 
thats going insane
 thats leaving today 
 can you spare me a dime 
i wanna get high 
if i can't i might cry Nazareth 
c'mon make me a deal 
i wanna feel real
 for that i would kill 
i love all your lights 
they really shine bright mon 
you're right out of sight 
 i'll take you to bed
 a dream in my head 
until i am dead 
you're taking my mind 
you're taking my money 
you're taking your time
Ride the world around the sun with me 
Pack all your things 
Your ticket to ecstacy 
Ride the world around the sun 
Checking it out you're gonna have fun 
Ride the world around the sun with me 
Check it out and see what you can be
just wondering 
its alright to light this fire here 
just wandering around
 colliding senses 
would you like to see umbrella smiles 
that last for a million years 
just wondering 
its alright to see your memories 
just wandering around
 colliding senses 
would you like to be 
umbrella smiling 
through the darkest seas
 come on
I believe in colors
 So bright and full 
So extreme I believe in light 
Florescent, candle 
And the sun It's not enough 
To not be afraid of electricity 
You've got to believe
 You've got to believe Give me your hums, your drums 
Your drones and moans and 
All the riches of your Gold Coast Give me your wings, your web 
Give me your heart and head 
Give me your smoke ghost The past is past, the future's best 
I'm standing here
 Ready for anything that comes You and me will not 
Go down in history 
We'll just be disappeared and drowned But, there's a lot of freedom out there 
And I'm just trying for my piece 
Oh, you've got to believe 
You've got to believe Show me your wrist, your lips, your kiss 
Your needs and knees 
Show me what you fear most Show me your ankle, show me your elbow 
Show me your anger 
Show me your smoke ghost
 Show me

Recorded live at the first Terrastock music festival on April 25-27, 1997 at The Rogue Lounge in Providence, RI. This recording contains Tadpoles entire set.

Terrastock review- “One of the most well-received bands were Hoboken’s Tadpoles..the most classically “psychedelic” of any band at the festival and the the same time, the most polished. “
–JERSEY JOURNAL (Jim Testa, May 3, 1997)

Terrastock review- “...Tadpoles succesfully crossed Pink Floyd and My Bloody Valentine.”
