"Don't Even Trip" as written by and Mike Patton Amon Tobin....
Escapin the situation,
im outta the trap zone, (trap zone)
the ringers turned off on my, cellular phone (cellular phne)
the interm wants to be...detector, hold up, the silver money fold up, black and the cold is commin by me

you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay

my gettaway is the boat(boat)
P.O.39 by the westside(holla)
my skin is on point (on point)
im more easy to rob,
police on my trail, i gotta slide away like that express mail (mail, mail)

you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay
you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay

my imagination surprise you,
like the new york city subway,
third rail, one half is missing, three third fail
cant track down, by the phone, what if we lie by email

we get our-men..the bac-ck allys in, that look familiar inna highschool, baby, we gotta get away
we get up on us too, silent screams in red and blue, lonely streetlights that dont love my name, looks familar, we get our way, baby

you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay
you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay

    General CommentThe character had a falling out with his dad (or friend), tries to rationalize what happened and why, and tries to make peace.

    General Commentthe line that's listed here as "daddy you're still my friend" sounds quite clearly to me like "that you're still my friend."

    i think the song is from the POV of someone who's been screwed over by a friend and realizes that the person's a complete jerkoff, but is willing to let it slide one last time. there's a warning right there in the song title - don't even trip. you screw up once, even in the smallest little way, and it's all over.

    General Commentfacelift, if that song is directed towards Trey Spruance then it's a complete joke. The lyrics in Peeping Tom are brilliant cause they fit on every listener, plus Mike Patton doesn't really take himself seriously.

    Anyway, this song is about old friends and a really big warning towards one of them. The main character realizes the other one is nothing but a fuck and asks himself if they're still friends. Probably yes.

    This song has a serious dose of Patton's humor which is damn weird and I totally love it.

    General CommentI was just thinking that because lately i've been reading on various forums from people talking about rumors surrounding the breakup of Bungle and some are who supposedly close to some of the members. The most common reason that came up was some pretty serious fights between Mike and Trey.

    General CommentUpon first listen, I immediately thought, "Trey." And what many people forget is that the meanings of songs are usually more specific in the beginning. Or they may stay that way, and the artist himself or herself may alter the "meaning" for the general public. After all, the second person is "still [his] friend." What kind of friend throws another under the bus with a song, especially a tongue in cheek trip hop song?

    General Commentits most def "that your my friend" and not "daddy your my friend"

    i think this song is from the POV of god or at least a spirit that has been with the person he is singing to for a long long time. i think he is trying to give him words of inspiration even though he calls him a piece of shit, he calls him that because he knows what mankind is, pretty shitty at times. but the words of inspiration come from saying "drop that gun you aint my fucking hero, think its cool to be a fuckin zero" cause he wants the subject to be an influence in people's lives but its not the right way to go, and then, "speak up now, and one of you is a hundred loud, when you preach they'll join you on the roofs and streets" he is saying, use your words instead of weapons, and the people will listen to him, as if he was a born leader.
    i kind of think the long was set up for a person with dilusions of grandeur and what his "voices" in his head are telling him, but this time, those voices might be right.
