Hello everyone!

It’s been 25 years since our first record In Your Face hit stores and we are still doin’ our thang after all these years! We are so thankful you have taken this long journey with us – what an insane quarter century it’s been! As you may know, we are about to release another album Crazy Glue this October and have some exciting news for you….

To pay tribute to your continued dedication throughout these years, we’d like to introduce to you a new community called PledgeMusic.com that will lead you into the exclusive world of Fishbone between now and when our new album Crazy Glue hits the streets on Tuesday, October 11, 2011. Through this site only, you’ll be able to get exclusive updates on what we are doing, watch never-seen-before footage of us making the album, get autographed gear like vintage posters, CDs and rare Fishbone merch from back in the day. You’ll also get first dibs on buying our new CD at a bonin’ price. Only through PledgeMusic.com.

This is an exciting time for us, continuing to do things we’ve never done before and now you get to see and hear it all go down! Stay tuned for some incredible new stuff comin your way….

— Fishbone

lyrics

Wading in the water and the tide began to creep
before I knew it, I had blew it, and started to get deep
head and shoulders under, watch my eyes burn till I weep
didn't know I could swim, but I learned in quantum leaps
It's like you got it/ on the tip top of your nose,
the shit you're in/ ain't turnin' out/ smellin' like a rose
this shit ain't funny/ but you/ take it like a joke
you've earned your turn, you doo doo doo doo, The Deep Shit Backstroke!
Swim muthafukka swim, or sink in to the sea
I tried to tread water, but it takes/ to much energy
Doggy paddlin' in this doodee got me flickin' off the fleas
You're in deep shit, doo doo the backstroke, like you're floatin' in the breeze
It's like you got it/ on the tip top of your nose,
the shit you're in/ ain't turnin' out/ smellin' like a rose
this shit ain't funny/ but you/ take it like a joke
you've earned your turn, you doo doo doo doo, The Deep Shit Backstroke!
The shit you're in, ain't over, but there's no permanence of state
that sinking feelings, got you reeling, thinkin' it's to late
Up the nerve and your learning curve and manifest your fate
It's stinkin' but you're not sinkin', in this shit that don't smell so great
It's like you got it/ on the tip top of your nose,
the shit you're in/ ain't turnin' out/ smellin' like a rose
this shit ain't funny/ but you/ take it like a joke
you've earned your turn, you doo doo doo doo, The Deep Shit Backstroke!
