about

The Red Plastic Buddha Chicago, Illinois

Formed in late 2005, Chicago's Red Plastic Buddha developed a sound that blends the best elements of late 60s British psychedelia with modern dynamics, alternating between swirling sonic landscapes and catchy, melody driven pop.

The Red Plastic Buddha draw frequent comparisons to Barrett-era Pink Floyd, 13th Floor Elevators and Love, as well as neo-psychedelic masters Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Track Name: Running on Empty
It's just your normal histrionics
just a page out of your old book
you were always setting off bonfires
anything to get me to look

We're a special kind of running on empty
we were cut from a different cloth
I think I gave you the remote for the sunshine
never dreamed that you would turn it off

You're pretty, but so absent minded
you skip stones in the wishing well
Even though, we're running on empty
I pray that nothing ever breaks the spell

This could be the day, dear.
Track Name: Daisy Love
I know a girl who never gets me down
she is to love as circle is to round
When I see her smile it's like the sun shines
When I think of love, I know I've found mine
What could ever match, the sparkle in her eyes?

Daisy, Daisy Love
she is all my dreams are made of
Daisy, my Daisy, Daisy Love

I know a girl that keeps me hanging 'round
Love is the song, I'm lost within the sound
dreaming of the kiss that brings the morning
when at last it hits, you get no warning
May I wake to this one hundred thousand time

Sitting on a hillside
tripping in the summer sunshine
float away to heaven
when Daisy comes with flowers in her hair
she's everywhere

I know a girl who never gets me down
I can't believe the treasure that I've found
you can keep your gold, your fame and glory
I find I'm in a better story
Happy Ever After, with Daisy by my side

Daisy, Daisy Love
She is all my dreams are made of
Daisy, my Daisy, Daisy Love
Track Name: Army of the New Tomorrow
The Army of the New Tomorrow are forming in the street
they're not like other revolutionaries that you meet
No demagogues of retribution
settling old scores
They're casting down defenses and they're
making plows from swords

Oh here it comes
Oh hear it

Revolution, evolution crystalline and clear
that castle walls and air raid calls have only
brought more fear
Mindless acquisition can't begin to fill the hole
so fill our graves for foolish kings who
struggle for control

Oh hear it comes

And as the sun appears, we'll rise to meet the day
and as the darkness ends and shadows fall away
and to the fools who said, that things would never change
I told you
I told you all

Gather 'round now, all you children
the time at last has come
to do away with all division, together we are One
Ours will be the middle way, the path that reconnects
for love will never truly die
Love surely resurrects.
Track Name: Soldier Boy
I got embassies
I got a will to live
I got philosophy
I got a lot to give
I got technology
I got a certain feel
I got the sun at night
I got waves of steel

I got a wife at home
I got rock and roll
I got the hand of god
I got a frightened soul
I got you in my sights
I got you in my veins
for the rest of my life
until the heaven reigns

Soldier boy – I am a soldier boy
Soldier boy – just call me Soldier boy

I’m the empires son
I do what I’m told
I’m a cog in the wheel
You know I’m bought and sold
And I’m dependable
And I’m an army of one
And I’m expendable
That is until we’ve won

Because you love the lie
Because you hate the truth
You know that nothing sells
Like wasted youth
And it’s nothing new
And we’re not the last
Because you never learn

And you forget the past
Track Name: Sad Girl
sad girl says she doesn’t care
Friday night she’s reading Beaudelaire
no calls she disconnects her phone
sad girl would rather be alone

some boy broke her tender heart
one touch and she falls apart
cold sun spins around the sky
sad girl hangs her head to cry

all at sea she sinks like stone
a sad princess on her throne
and I wish that I could dry her tears away.

sad girl drifting with the tide
that flows like the tears she cannot hide
sad girl stares as if through glass
sad eyes that only see the past

all at sea she sinks like stone
a dark princess on her throne
and I wish that I could dry her tears away
and I wish that I could dry her tears away
how I wish that I could dry her tears away.
Track Name: King of the Underground
I’m the king of the underground
I fly high on a supersonic sound wave.
we’re reborn today

turn the amps up to atom bomb
turn yourself into the eye of
Darkness. watch it fade away

Open up the windows of your mind
Open up your eyes and don’t be blind

I’m the king of the stratosphere
so high that I think I may be falling
but I feel okay

We’re the stars in a satin sky
If you’re not on fire then you don’t feel it
burn your fear away

Open up the windows of your mind
Open up your eyes and don’t be blind.

I’m the king of the underground.
Track Name: Seahorse
Seahorse, what are you thinking about?
As you watch the sun dance on the crest of your clouds
And does the universe ever speak to you
in your coral cave, in your ocean blue

Seahorse, what do you dream about now?
Phosphorescent stars worn on a trilobites brow.
And the universe, hear it speak to you
in your coral cave, in your ocean blue

And do you hear the sirens
calling you from across the sea
And do they fill your head with visions
like they did for me
and do you ever wish that you could fly
out of the sea to touch the sky
or race through fields of liquid green
so beautiful and submarine

Sometimes, I feel impossibly small
Seahorse, what do you make of it all?
because the universe, I know it sings to you
in your coral cave, in your ocean blue

and I won’t be here for long
the tide won’t be here for long
I won’t be here for long
Track Name: Star Shaped Holes
Happiness is a state of mind
heaven and hell are for the blind
beating like wings of butterflies
blinking I stare into your eyes
If you kiss me
I will not ask why
I’m cutting star-shaped holes in the sky

Love is the perfect mystery
full of intrigue and history
After all what has come before
even the lost return for more
watch the earthbound
somehow learn to fly
cutting star-shaped holes in the sky

glitter - glitter, I wish our stars would last
all the days of my life
maybe - maybe, if you hold me fast
we could wish them all to life

Maybe this world is just a dream
just on the edge of everything
and when we wake it fades away
as we move on into the day
maybe we’ll remember how we tried
and cutting star-shaped holes in the sky

Happiness is a state of mind (repeat forever)
Track Name: Waves
All around me ocean
I dissolve into the sea
One returns with truth to be collected
One to one of many
One too many always be
One is waiting to be resurrected

First the wave is ocean
then the ocean is the wave
Far beneath the stars there is no difference
Men are born and men will die
to be reborn again
to learn to walk the path of least resistance

become the wave
become the sea
become the stars
and always be
become the truth
become the path
I'm not the first
I'm not the last

become yourself
become the void
become eternal
to be destroyed
become the night
become the day
become the One
become the Way
