about

Banana Nightmare Brisbane, Australia

Banana Nightmare sounds like the universe becoming self-aware for the first time.

Through a mixture of face-melting post-rock and introspective shoe-gaze music, Banana Nightmare hopes to speak out against dogma and superstitious thinking, whilst promoting critical reasoning and scientific discoveries.

The first EP, "Bananageddon", will be released over the course of 2012.

Track Name: The Most Astounding Fact (feat. Neil deGrasse Tyson)
The most astounding fact is the knowledge
that the atoms that comprise life on Earth,
the atoms that make up the human body,
are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements
into heavy elements in their core
under extreme temperatures and pressures.
These stars, the high mass ones among them,
went unstable in their later years.
They collapsed and then exploded scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy.
Guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself.

So that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes,
we are part of this universe, we are in this universe.
But perhaps more important than both of those facts,
is that the universe is in us.
Track Name: 2011 (feat. A.C.E, FlowP, Tiffany Brown, Caitlin von Berky)
"We never pray together
We'll never be forever ever
You sever the chance to leave here
For better life in one short year

Twenty-twelve is near
In one short year"
Track Name: Afterpiece (feat. A.C.E & Kylie Fox)
These feet won't walk, this mouth won't talk,
In the shoes or the words you think I ought.
It's not you it's me that dreams can't you see?
For a better life than yours turned out to be.

You hold me down, let me out of this misery,
Why don't you just kill me? We'll end this easily.
My world is gone so this song is my afterpiece,
I'm suffocating now, you cannot rescue me.
Track Name: Taste The Coke (feat A.C.E)
Down deep in my brain
Is a piece of the slain
People deceived through them games
Equal to feed to the flame
Sheeps who believed in their name
Reached through a speech wit a bang
Each of 'em meek in their lanes
Seeped through a leak in their veins

Thoughts of the faithful
They're usually weak
They usually serve as crutches to walk on these streets
Its hard to envision
So hard to beseech
So hard to get wit 'em
That is his regardless preach

Hop in the whip but he can't come wit
Talk shit be can't run shit
And his cause is simple as y'all
Put y'all all in the ship
See if u stay afloat
Watched you burn ya money
I watched you taste the coke
I got you earning for me

I could Poly a Mono
Trynna put mom in a condo
I told my best hermano
He's Ray Allen im Rondo
Im controlling the scene
Now I'm holding the green
If it wasn't fa y'all
I would so intervene
i just holstered my dream
'Til it was close to be seen
Now I'm in front of the product
Gotta get one for the team team

New jeers what I represent
That's new words, new herb
New excrement
Thats new shit a new vic and two peppermints
We all given bitches work-outs like new regiments
A true element
Lost in the cracks
Off on our picard when martians attacks

Shit these weirdos wear clothes that's
Alternate wack
Shit these air holes tear holes
Across niggas back
I tech nine 'em my rhyming is so intact
Mohammed with the pick off
Nostradamus wit facts
Kilometers of kick offs
Hope im runnin' 'em back
Kilograms of brick raw
Y'all shit come in a sack
And I don't even move it
Let's settle all confusion
I just know a movement that oversees other movements
I just know a cuban that opens faces like reubens
I motivate his intrusion
I know the cases conclusion
Heres a lil' foreshadowing
I'm over taken assuming the role herdin cattle
In human mind through embattlement

Hop in the whip but he can't come wit
Talk shit be can't run shit
And his cause is simple as y'all
Put y'all all in the ship
See if u stay afloat
Watched you burn ya money
I watched you taste the coke
I got you earning for me
Track Name: In Every Breath (feat. Lawrence Krauss)
"Take a deep breath, and hold it in.
We are connected in a remarkable way, not just to everything else in the universe but to everything that's ever existed on Earth. Because when you took that deep breath and held it in, it turned out, one can show, that in every breath you take there are on average ten oxygen atoms from the dying breath of Caesar when he said "Et tu Brute". But not only that, not just Caesar but almost everyone else who ever lived. From people who seem strange and different, you are connected in a way to everyone who's ever lived."
- Lawrence Krauss
Track Name: Imperfections (feat. Kylie Fox)
To be human is to have those imperfections,
Beauty then is cracks and webs with right intentions.

You brought moments lying dormant to my attention,
Welcome vibe, product of time, and no invention.

Populated it to the state it is,
That I can see the past.
Ageing as myself, pictures on the shelf,
Nothing will ever last.

Old is the new new
Some said who knew
When the first weed grew
It would grow on you
Yesterday's clue
A familiar view
Track Name: What If You're Wrong? (feat. Richard Dawkins)
"This is probably going to be the most simplest one for you to answer, but what if you're wrong?"

"Well, what if I'm wrong, I mean... anybody could be wrong. We could all be wrong about the Flying Spaghetti Monster and the Pink Unicorn and the flying teapot. You happen to have been brought up, I would presume, in the Christian faith. You know what it's like to not believe in a particular faith because you're not a Muslim. You're not a Hindu. Why aren't you a Hindu? Because you happen to have been brought up in America, not in India. If you were brought up in classical Greece you'd be believing in Zeus. If you were brought up in central Africa you'd be believing in the great Juju up the mountain. There's no particular reason to pick on the Judeo-Christian god, in which by the sheerest accident you happen to have been brought up and, and ask me the question, "What if I'm wrong?" What if you're wrong about the great Juju at the bottom of the sea?"
Track Name: This Feeling (feat. Eve Vickerson)
I've got this feeling
It's now or never
I don't know
The world keeps turning
Now what you say?
What is it?

I've got this feeling
The world is turning
I don't know
Where we're going?
Yeah I can't decide

We can be safe
Instead of dying alone

would it feel,
What would it feel like?

I've got this feeling
It's not enough
to lie always
It's never needed
What you say?
It's time.
I know it's too late
It's now or never
Now or never
I've got this feeling
Is it only a dream?

Take it away

I've got this feeling
It's now or never
Why don't u stay?
And I'll go on
Coz we don't need it
I've got this feeling
It's all too late
Track Name: Pantera Rap (feat. Juan Will & A.C.E)
I am on my wave, she is in addiction
And i can't stand her ways, but she is in my system
She got me goin high, high tryna fly with the rest of em
But we don't know no difference
I am on my wave, she is in addiction
Track Name: Flagship (feat. Jono Wilson)
Hunger never takes its love away
Never for a single day.
Haunting caverns of my mind
Scaring me just what it finds.

So the flagship rolls on by
Watching the days as children cry.
So the flagship rolls on in
Watching the sinners sin.
Longing evenings alone on the rock
Wishing that your golden boy talks.
The feature list is about to be played
For all the world to finally be dazed.

I want to gasp the cold air in my lungs
Feeling the sense of songs to be sung.
Touch on my skin aint supposed to cause pain
But your touch does it again and again.

So the flagship rolls on by
Watching the days as children cry.
So the flagship rolls on in
Watching the sinners sin.
Longing evenings alone on the rock
Wishing that your golden boy talks.
The feature list is about to be played
For all the world to finally be dazed.

The flagship comes, the flagship goes
Where it comes from nobody knows.
It comes from silence, that's filled with noise
It came with guidance not to destroy.
Such simple breaths.

So the flagship rolls on by
Watching the days as children cry.
So the flagship rolls on in
Watching the sinners sin.
I wonder how the chore began
Of making lights appear in sand.
Lighting the way for the damned trip
That life coined. The flagship.
Track Name: Hallowed (feat. Jeremy Hofer)
Close my eyes I see you, so humbled I become
Drifting in your beauty, and I'm dancing to your silent drum
And I wonder if you see me insignificant am I
Yet I know that you love me from the way that I abide
In you, oh Lord in your beauty, in you

Hallowed be
Hallowed be

Consecrated
Creation

So far away from this world you take me as I am
This beauty unfolding the works of your hand
In wonder I hold on to this moment you and I
Hallowed be your beauty, filling up this earth and Sky

Hallowed be...

Hallowed be your beauty you're the essence of perfection
The way that you provide your guidance and protection
From the enemies of life, through the struggle through the strife
Your beauty the plumb line, to guide

Oh you guide me
When I look upon your beauty
Oh you guide me Lord

No matter sunset, sunrise, or these cloudy skies
see you're still the same
I lift my eyes to the mountains
where does my hope come from?

I've had enough of shadows yes I've had enough of lies
Oh no more tolerating this damnation in disguise
See I want to stand before you free from the world's demise
Standing in your beauty, accepting of your prize
Hallowed be
