(2004)

Up Off The Floor (stylized as up off the floor) is the third and final studio album by God Lives Underwater. The album was originally recorded in 2000 but due to drug problems within the band and their record label going bankrupt the album was shelved until Megaforce Records picked it up. There have been numerous complaints amongst fans about the quality of the album's mastering, as well as complaints that two of the more well-known songs from the album's sessions ("Choir Boy" and a cover of "David Bowie's " "Fame") were removed and not included in the official release for undisclosed reasons. The album was, however, released to somewhat modest success, with the song "Fame" featured in the movie 15 Minutes .

Turzo has said that the songs that are edited will be released freely on the internet at some point for the fans that want them.
