about

NOM: the sound of one eating another. This nine song EP is an exercise in the way one person interprets another's song. In this case the production team known as the Om Nom Noms (Justin Collins, Howard Draper, and Mark Sonnabaum) were given existing but unrecorded Fishboy songs (many of which were written for Albatross) that had yet to bet fleshed out with a full band. With a limited amount of studio time at the Echolab in Argyle, TX, a vocal track and scratch guitar the team interpreted these nine tracks how they saw fit with wonderful results.

In the late summer of 2009 the record was self released on vinyl with hand screened covers in four different colors.

Track Name: Bricks Part 1
life
it's harder than you thought it be
a block of ice
slowly drifting out to sea
and you float
you float along merrily
till it melts
and time
it never seems to go your way
its fast
it's getting faster every day
and I
I'm never gonna be the same
again
I
am never gonna be the same again
Track Name: Bricks Part 2
I rode my bike
across the lone star state
I went to sleep
it started getting late
and so I slept
secrets I kept
I wrote a poem
and threw it in the trash
went to store
but didn't have not cash
and so I wept
a new corvette

and all at once
it started raining bricks
just for once
it started raining bricks

I broke my teeth
and mailed them to your house
now all the girls
are laughing at my mouth
what should I do?
what can I do?

and all at once it started raining
just for once it started raining
Track Name: Cobra Cobra
cobra cobra rise and shine
the sun came out today
well there's a little feeling that I know you've got
and it isn't soon to go away
it's all apart of waking up
and we all wake up someday

cobra cobra stretch your legs
there's lots to do today
we'll its time to jump
and its time to run
and I hope you never run away
evening will be coming soon
it follows every day

cobra cobra close your eyes
you've had a busy day
well I've got a feeling that we'll meet again
and that meeting isn't far away
it's all apart of growing up
and we all grow up someday
Track Name: Gabe Saucedo Hates My Guts
Gabe Saucedo told me I suck he said
"fishboy the world it don't revolve around you"
Gabe Saucedo told me to give it up he said
"throw in the towel before the towel it strangles you"

and I know he's only joking
and I know he's only helping
keep my ego my ego in check
and part of me is hoping
and the rest of me is hoping
that hes really my biggest fan
please understand the genius
theory I've devised

Gabe Saucedo called my brother Dirk
and he asked "how did you get all your family's talent?"
Gabe Saucedo he called me a jerk
when Dirk told him that I wrote this song about him

but I know he's only joking
and I know hes only helping
keep my ego down to size
and part of me is hoping
and the rest of me is hoping
that he's really the head of my fan club
and he'll stand up one day and he will come clean

but in the mean while I be waiting
and biding my time
and calling him every chance I get
so he can cut me down to size
cause thats just what I've got to do

and I know he's only joking
and I know he's only helping
keep my ego my ego in check
and part of me is hoping
and the rest of me is hoping
that hes really my biggest fan
please understand the genius
theory I've devised
Track Name: Broken Bones
broken bones
and broken feet
make it hard
for me to walk across the street
where I got a job
to earn some dough
so I can heal
these broken bones
and on that day
when it comes at last
the hospital assistant
will cut me out of a body cast
and I'll run and jump and dance and scream
and backflip off a trampoline
and kiss the girl I've wanted for so long
but until that day I gotta wait
for a medical professional to come and say
I've healed these broken bones

and you can't rollerskate in a buffalo heard
and you can't sit still when you've heard the word
whispered in your ear by buddy holly's ghost
there's a time to work there's a time to play
but not until you reach the day
you heal these broken

broken bones
broken teeth
make it hard for me to eat
but I've got to try
I've got to grow
so I can heal these broken bones

broken bones
please to cry
I will love you will I die
broken bones say goodbye
goodbye don't ever return
Track Name: Hovercraft
when you lose your keyboard
check the lost and found
but it's not there
so you make some flyers
and post them around the block
for those who care
one week passes
and turned into a month
with no reply
you start to wonder
was it even worth the try
and all your neighbors
never seem to be around
the skies are yellow
all the leaves are blue
up is down

and I'll ride the hovercraft
across the bay
gliding on water
there is no better way

so you check your mailbox
and you got one note
and its from me
it says I'm coming
I'll be there tonight at nine fifteen

as you ride to greet me
you start to speed
you take the back roads
and all the lights are green
and I'll ride the hovercraft
out of the past
and I'll glide for miles
and hope this always last

and I could love you
hovercraft
Track Name: Accidents
I took a drive
and drove straight off a cliff
and parachuted out before I hit
but try as I might
I could not pull the chord
flashback to every word my father said

and as the ambulance looked for my body
a little phrase entered my head
what doesn't kill you son it only makes you stronger
now I'm so strong I should be dead

so I flew a kite
and used up all the string
I used up everything that it could give
but try as I might
I hit a power line
flash back to everyday that I had lived

and as the paramedics lifted up my body
a little phrase chimed in my ear
what doesn't kill you son it only makes you stronger
and now I'm stronger than a bear

and as the hospital began to take my vitals
my whole family gathered around
what does not kill you son it only makes you stronger
now I'm the strongest guy in town
I'm the stronges guy around

so I called your house to tell you where I was
and all the awful places I had been
now on your machine I am sounding like a jerk
wont blame you if you never talk to me again
Track Name: Larger Than Before
another day has ended
another night's begun
moonlight shines upon the ground
reflected from the sun
little hands and fingers
tiny toes and feet
will soon be instruments
to run into the street

and now your heart
has grown one size
it's larger than before
your eyes
you have changed

big wheel keep on turning
across the new back yard
bigfoot stole a bunny
but didn't get very far
and when the ice starts melting
and grey clouds blow away
we'll ride our bikes straight out of this town
and we wont stop till we get to mexico

and now your heart
has grown another size
it's larger than before
your eyes
you have changed

another day has ended
another night's begun
moonlight shines upon the ground
reflected from the sun
little hands and fingers
tiny toes and feet
will soon be instruments
to run into the street

and now your heart
has grown another size
it's larger than before
your eyes
are huge tonight
and now your heart
has grown one size
it's larger than before
your eyes
you have changed
ohohohoh you have changed
Track Name: Tired Tried
I'm tired
I'm tired
I'm tired of playing all my scales
I tried
I tried
to learn everyone
and I failed
so I quit
now I sit
humming my own melody
I tried
I tried
now I I'm just banging on the keys

and although I have given up
you know I'll never quit
I'll will hide in my catacomb
burning up fires
chewing on wires

I'm tired
I'm tired
I'm tired of doing all my chores
I tried
I tried
and now I won't try and more

and although have given up
you know I'll never quit
I will hide in my living room
lighting up fires
burning up wires

I'm tired
I'm tired
I'm tired of playing all my scales
I tried
I tired
to learn every one
and I failed
