about

Cloud No. 3 is a Canadian-American indie rock/folk/electronic duo consisting of cousins Tay and SK Chow. Their first album was composed and recorded in two frantic sessions in Canada and California. Raw, lo-fi and eclectic - the albums has moments of unbridled enthusiasm ("Jump"), quiet nostalgia ("Sankyo") and dark humor ("Queen of Horror"). Oh, and that's their grandmother on the cover.

Track Name: Ruff
I talk to you
You talk to me
Can't you hear me
Can't you hear me

Who cares 'bout you
Who cares 'bout me
As long as you can keep it very short

Let me talk
Listen to me
Hold it for my monologue

Cry for me
Laugh for me
Excite for me
This is my life you see

Who cares
Who cares

Imagine the world

Love the burger I ate
Cheer for my new brocade
Adore my son who's named Ray
Never miss my birthday
Remember my dog's age

Ruff Ruff Ruff
Track Name: Marshmellow
This is not Rock 'n Roll
This is Marshmellow

Emily, you don't know how this is meant to me
I've been searching for this feeling
All these years

A perfect sensation that enlightens me

It's your generosity
The recipe of life
Hat's worth tasting
Let's immortalized
by a song to you, to you

Emily…Emily… Emily (Very, very yummy)

You don't know what you did
but let me tell you
you've touched me deeply, deeply, deep, deeply

(Yes, Emily… Thank you, Emily..)

The taste of life is not too sweet
but it makes you want to chew
slowly… slowly… slowly

This is not Rock 'n Roll
This is Marshmellow
Track Name: Chair With Wheels
When I was a child
A very young child
I had one fear
A very odd fear
At hospitals
And shopping malls
Amusement parks
And the big Walmart

Chair with wheels
Chair with wheels
Chair with wheels
Two big wheels

I went to the zoo
Like children do
At the peccary shack
I had a panic attack
Oh where to begin?
A guest rolled in
I almost died
'Cause he was motorized

Motorized
Motorized
Motorized
I closed my eyes

The years went by
I didn't die
I learned about wars
And dinosaurs
One day I walked by
The big blue sign
Going to the arcade
I had no fright

I had no fright
I had no fright
I had no fright
And I felt all right
Track Name: Jump
The rain left behind the European earthworms
Surfacing to make their final pleas
The Jolly Green Giant and decaying leaves gazebo
Ernest I ask you if you'll please
Where you gonna hang it?

Jump jump jump Max jump jump jump
No singing in the rain you're much too old
Jump jump jump Max jump jump jump
Out of the museum and into the household
Track Name: Sankyo
Once you start singing
you won't stop till you're done

You took a lot of abuse
from a nasty child
But you're still smiling
haven't forgotten your song

Sankyo, Sankyo, Thank you,
Sankyo

In the closet
on the Shelf
out of the Cardboard box

You're forgotten
but rediscovered

Sankyo, Sankyo, Thank you,
Sankyo

Keep flapping
your Wings…
You're just a happy little duckling

Sankyo, Sankyo, Thank you,
Sankyo
Track Name: Space Bunny
You're in and out
of a faceless crowd
You wouldn't care
about their cleverness

You sit around
gazing emptiness

What an eye
What a face
Like an alien came from space
In the darkness
only you could
find your place

Look at you
Shining through
Is it the innocence
Or confidence
There's something about you

With your grace
Pledge my faith

What's your name
What's your taste
You are a special

Bunny from Space…
Special….
Bunny from Space…
Bunny, Bunny from… Space
Track Name: Dance Up
Scream a little louder
Show what you can do
Lights are all around you
your Fans adoring you

We want to see you move
put on your sparkling suit
Your hat and dancing shoes
and take us to the Moon….

Never mind what the press said
About your face and your hair
About the things they don't know much about
But my jukebox is playing
And your music's staying
You're still the star of my neighborhood
You lived to save our childhood

They want to crush you
'cause *they're feeling broken inside
They think they own you
'cause they *can't own themselves
But my jukebox is playing
And your music's staying
You're still the star of my neighborhood
You lived to save our childhood
Track Name: Parkade
I have travelled far to China and the Argentine
And I've felt so out of place wherever I have been
Driving on Canadian roads is like driving at home
It's like something I know
Except for the Metric that feels so eccentric
And the dashes you cross when you get on the exit

Every car every brand every truck every van
Everything with a wheel is in the parkade
Underground all around in the center of the town
If your car needs a break go to the parkade

If you want to go to the mall
And if it's too far to walk
You're better off just taking a car
Bring along some Canadian dollars
They're gold and shiny and ever so clean
They beat them U.S. greens

When I'm home I often run into the traffic cops
But in the BC you will almost never ever get stopped
Driving on Canadian roads is so peaceful too no one's trying to shoot you
If you're in the way as you're parallel parking, Canadians wait and
they won't give you the finger

Every car every brand every truck every van
Everything with a wheel is in the parkade
Underground all around in the center of the town
If your car needs a break go to the parkade
Track Name: Thirty Knots
Sleeping under the tree
woke up by the sun
Usually, usually

Sand is lifting off the ground
A perfect Monday in
January, January

Wind is thirty knots
water's very calm
Find a cool spot
It's a race with the clock

Ride the wave
Ditch the boss
In the Air
I don't care

Chase the Wind
it's my job
the rest will fall in its place

Lift me up
Every second
Grab the chance
To be One...
Track Name: Queen of Horror
She said, 'A Vampire entered
No blood to be found,
I was ordered to find some.'

'But nothing could be found,
then I realized I have blood in me.'

Then she said, ' Don't cry, don't cry, my baby.
My story gets better.
If you don't want to sleep,
I got plenty to keep you awake
plenty to keep you awake…'

I said, 'I don't want bedtime story.
But you just kept giving them to me!
Nightmare every night.
That's why I wasn't sleeping.'

She said, 'Ghost are not scary, my baby.
They are usually helpless… helpless.
People are far worse…
people are far worse…'
