the occurrence of slope
live at meguro persimmon hall tokyo february 29 2008
featuring tim elsenburg


take them to the sleepyard
there are no returns, no exceptions
lay them in the sleepyard
sell a little payment protection

ease the apparatus
isolate a part that's defective
send them to the sleepyard
statutory rights aren't affected

you wanna join in
it's nothing less than you deserve
you've had enough now
you're gonna get what you deserve

wake up in the sleepyard
everybody knows what i'm after
everybody's watching
everybody's helpless with laughter

don't lie down - how am i going to follow?
(cant get away, got to get away)
don't lie down - how am i going to follow?

take me to the sleepyard
brush away the dirt from the blankets
find me in the sleepyard
somewhere underneath this atlantis

you wanna join in
it's nothing less than you deserve
you've had enough now
you're gonna get what you deserve

take them to the sleepyard

mika naramura (2nd violin)

seigen tokuzawa (cello, quartet leader, strings arrangements)

vocalists were featured at this concert in the form of pre-recorded back-projections created by Shoko Ise. the vocal soundtrack was therefore a playback sourced from the original album audio and to which the live band members were playing in sync. both live visuals and audio were being generated from the laptop operated by steve jansen onstage.
