  • Start diggin' in my veins,
    'cause I've got an itch.
    You'll only find gold,
    when you're in my ditch.
    Stakin' up your claim,
    and I'm here to enrich.
    I'm here to unload
    if you catch my drift.
    Oh baby come on.
    Yeah, yeah.

    The pleasure's all yours.
    Your pain is all mine.
    Love to ride the quake,
    when you're the faultline.
    The pressure wants more.
    My plates all divide.
    Up to grind your rocks,
    when you're in my mine,
    baby, come on--.

    ---
    Yeah, yeah.
    ---

    Clawin' at my back,
    and diggin' in your hips.
    Buildin' up the steam,
    with your fingertips.
    New ground is bound to crack,
    at a rate like this.
    Got me bustin' at the seams,
    you're so seismic--~

    (Bridge)
    Let's crumble down the ceiling.
    (Lustful vibrations.)
    I've got layers worth peeling-.
    (Trust my intentions.)
    Let's burrow in,
    to each other's skin,
    and find out what's beneath.

    The pleasure's all yours.
    Your pain is all mine.
    Love to ride the quake,
    when you're the faultline.
    The pressure wants more.
    My plates all divide.
    Up to grind your rocks,
    when you're in my mine,
    baby, come on--
    Yeah, yeah
    Baby come on
    Yeah yeah
  • Intro Solo (0:00 - 0:12)

    Broken soil, burning red.
    Wealth for toil, coin for death.

    Sky turns dark, trees lose bark,
    Leaves will keep,
    Falling, falling.

    You take oil, you dig soil,
    While I keep,
    Screaming, calling.

    Your exhausts, your sea ports.
    They choke me, they drown me.

    C-O-2, will kill you.
    Human plague, won’t be saved.

    You’re selfish, you’re greedy,
    I’m cracking, I’m bleeding.

    You know why, you’re dying.
    But still you, keep mining.

    Go save yourselves, we’re done here.
    Your greed has brought your death near.
    The world will burn as you feared.
    Climate change will end you.

    It’s done, my hands have been tied.
    Won’t matter how much you tried.
    You said you’d act, and you lied.
    Not long now till you’re all fried.

    Guitar Solo (1:35 - 1:44)

    Birds falling, dogs whining
    The wildlifes,
    Choking, crawling.

    Black suit man, red tie man,
    Buisnessman,
    Laughing, smiling.

    Companies, will profit,
    My body, will cop it.

    Forests burn, oceans boil,
    You gut trees, you steal oil.

    My icecaps, flood cities,
    But still you, pollute me.

    Human revolution,
    Is revolting to me.

    Go save yourselves, we’re done here.
    Your greed has brought your death near.
    The world will burn as you feared.
    Climate change will end you.

    It’s done, my hands have been tied.
    Won’t matter how much you tried.
    You said you’d act, and you lied.
    Not long now till you’re all fried.

    If there is a God,
    He won’t like what He sees.

    How we’ve hurt the earth,
    The way we’ve made her bleed.

    Want to turn back time,
    And change our history.

    So she won’t melt us all,
    Or drown us in her seas.

    Go save yourselves, we’re done here.
    Your greed has brought your death near.
    The world will burn as you feared.
    My fever will burn you off.

    It’s done, my hands have been tied.
    Won’t matter how much you tried.
    You said you’d act, and you lied.
    It’s time to say our goodbyes.

    Outro Solo (4:00 - 4:31)
  • Collapse

    [Verse 1]
    This wall outside my window
    Clawing at the sky
    To hold back twenty thousand tons
    From you and I

    But its strength has been devoured
    Hollowed through the core
    Neglect became its best chance
    Now as good as gone

    [Chorus 1]
    Don't drop the earth upon us
    With angles bearing down
    Just let us out of here

    Don't settle in repose
    Leave faith out for the next ones
    And reasons for the fear

    [Verse 2]
    Now the world outside my window
    Shifting stone to drive
    The gravity too testing
    For a patchwork perfect lie

    Baseless in the comfort
    We'll never have to know
    When those bindings spit out splinters
    No time to leave, just go

    [Chorus 2]
    Don't drop the earth upon us
    With angles bearing down
    Just let us out of here

    Don't settle in repose
    Leave faith out for the next ones
    And reasons for the fear

    [Bridge]
    A moment in the making
    Years in the shaking
    A lifetime in the taking
    Forever in the breaking

    [Chorus 3]
    Don't smother our replacements
    With fault converging down
    Just get us out of here

    Don't hasten this collapse
    Leave little conscience out
    Now measure up the fear
  • Vesuvius blew, destroyed Pompeii
    Since ‘44, they feared the day
    When volcano blows again
    A million people could see their end
    Live in the shadow and just pretend
    That a lovely mountain could be their friend
    Tidal wave (through the dry plateau)
    Mountains detonate (embers glow)
    Plate tectonic (overthrow)
    Burns right through us (lava flow)
    Mt. Ranier in Washington
    Mud buries Seattle, nowhere to run
    Tacoma hit, 50 megatons
    US Northwest is said and done
    When volcano blows again
    A million people could see their end
    Live in the shadow and just pretend
    That a lovely mountain could be their friend
    Tidal wave (through the dry plateau)
    Mountains detonate (embers glow)
    Plate tectonic (overthrow)
    Burns right through us (lava flow)
    Mt. Fiji on the isle Japan
    Tokyo would be a frying pan
    The greatest earthquake seen by Man
    Is there a real disaster plan?
    Tidal wave (through the dry plateau)
    Mountains detonate (embers glow)
    Plate tectonic (overthrow)
    Burns right through us (lava flow)
  • Dirt, metal, crag and rust Gives me a case of wanderlust
    Rocks and apples, gardens, pears Beauty shown beyond compare
    Magma, veggies, bushes, slate This planet sure is great
    Trees, grass, flowers, pebbles Still there's something leaving me unsettled

    We used to say a lot Now we only say a little
    We used to live on purpose Now it's only incidental
    Born from the dust We'll return when we splat
    When the dirt fills our lungs From this Earth that is flat

    Why aren' t we shouting from the rooftops
    To the edge of the earth
    That we've been getting lied to From our moment of birth
    Taught by schools and scientologists That we live on a sphere
    Just spreading propaganda And creating false fear

    We used to say a globe Now we know its more a pancake
    We used to think we'd roll on Now we know this disc would just break
    Born from the dust We'll return when we splat
    When the dirt fills our lungs On this giant turtle's back

    Why is it impossible we live on tortoise shells
    Why is it so hard to believe we're apart of somebody else
    Just a flat disc on a turtle in the middle of an ancient giant's dream
    Who works at a video game factory creating entertainment from what he's seen
    Entertainment that got stolen by a peer and turned into a book
    A book that inspired movies and shows and songs with really cool hooks
    Songs that would be listened to by the original giant while he cried
    And thought about the world he made as he cuddled with his pet turtle Bruce
  • You dug my grave, but I pushed you in it
    Perpetual wreckage caused by your abuse
    My word is crumbling with no way to prevent it
    I refuse to sink down to you

    Shuffle through the earth where you sowed your doubts
    Forgotten, you left us suffocating in drought
    I won't give in to your coarse half-truths
    Do you struggle to contain the filth you spew?

    These walls you kept me in are coming down
    You're being loud without regard for sound
    Covered in precipitate, adorned like a crown
    This is over, don't blow your composure now

    You dug my grave, but I pushed you in it
    Perpetual wreckage caused by your abuse
    My word is crumbling with no way to prevent it
    I refuse to sink down to you

    Hiding shadows from the walls of the caves
    Anything to keep me distracted and dazed
    My blood has stained, you can't disavow
    This is over, can't hid your corrosion now

    What are we doing here
    Same place we were last year
    Just six feet underground

    You dug my grave, but I pushed you in it
    Perpetual wreckage caused by your abuse
    My word is crumbling with no way to prevent it
    I refuse to sink down to you
  • A life designed
    to make us choke.
    To keep us braced,
    to fight ourselves.
    Grow non-benign,
    and seal their throats,
    We teeth outnumber
    the royal mouths!

    Become the cavity! (Infect their construct!)
    Be done with the elite! (Abcess the corrupt!)
    Bite the tongue that speaks! (Let them taste blood!)]

    We grind for, and feed them.
    My God, aren't they lethargic?
    Should bind them up, and eat them.
    By God, that's patriotic!

    They leave us blind,
    and seed false hope.
    They keep us maced,
    despite our help.
    Gouge out their eyes,
    and seal the holes,
    Leave them to feel
    for their own way out!

    Become the cataract! (Smoke out their conned-front!)
    Bleed out the eyes of greed! (God bless our distrust!)
    Eyeless the ones who lead! (Let them face blood!)
    Let them taste blood!
  • Did you think about your homelife
    When you were making this decision
    Did you think about your own wife
    Or maybe asking her opinion

    Will you be surprised
    When she spends all night on the phone
    With her sister and you end up
    Going off to bed alone

    Tell you something
    You got another thing coming
    But what is coming
    Won’t be you

    You’re gonna need a lot of thoughts and prayers
    To get through this one
    It’s a little hypocritical To fiddle in the middle
    of a woman, then expect to kiss one
    And nothing will be colder than her shoulder
    If you legislate a body part that you ain’t got
    So I hope you’re keeping warm,
    And I hope you’re sleeping well,
    In your office, on your cot
    You’re gonna need a lot of thoughts and prayers

    Did you think that you’d come home
    To a fresh hot meal on your plate
    Did you think you’d get a smile
    When you took her on your monthly dinner date

    Speaking of her monthly, is it suddenly all month long
    And does having you get close
    Make her headache get stronger

    Tell you something
    You got another thing coming
    But what is coming
    won’t be you

    You’re gonna need a lot of thoughts and prayers
    To get through this one
    It’s a little hypocritical
    To fiddle in the middle of a woman
    Then expect to kiss one
    the people in the Senate
    Never doubted for a minute
    Everything they do is good and right
    And it’s just a total little crazy random
    Happenstance coincidence
    That every single one is white
    You’re gonna need a lot of thoughts and prayers
  • Ballot Proposition Infinity+1

    Verse

    Proposition Infinity
    does not go far enough.....
    Supporting heterorobosexuals
    For same sexes is still too tough.

    Chorus part 1

    And married Robo couples can only get
    Married benefits in New New York?
    For the rest of the known universe,
    They're still left in the dark!

    Chorus Part 2

    Cannot a robot love?
    Is marriage what they'll be deprived of?
    Can't a person love a machine?
    The discrimination that is so obscene!

    Verse 2

    The arguments against robosexuality
    Are religious, no matter how it is spun....
    The separation of church and state
    (Is) a battle already won.

    Solo

    Chorus 2

    Cannot a robot love?
    Is marriage what they'll be deprived of?
    Can't a person love a machine?
    The discrimination that is so obscene!

    Verse 3

    You can't change who you are
    through therapeutic conversion, yeah?
    The psychological scars
    The real perversion!

    Outro/Chorus

    Same sex person, to robot love,
    Marriage of them too, we should approve of
    After this passes, we're not done
    It's on to proposition infinity plus one!
  • Underwater City

    [PART 1]

    Deep under water where the angler-fish lurk
    I drive a submarine to work
    It's a high-paying job at a shell corporation
    But my boss is a shark and my wife's a crustacean
    I may be my family's sole breadwinner
    But still every day we have algae for dinner
    Before bed I take my octopus for a walk
    Playing in the park with my neighbor's hybrid fish-dog
    (It's a hybrid between a fish and a dog and can talk)

    Saturday I swim to the grocery store
    Walmart expanded to the ocean floor
    The cashier is my friend and I know him well
    He takes his smoke break in a diving bell
    I buy some food and a lava lamp
    Then I have to get home before that stuff gets damp

    [CHORUS]

    Welcome to
    Underwater City, Underwater City
    Life under the sea
    It really is better
    down where it's wetter
    Take it from me

    [PART 2]

    We had the weight of the earth on our shoulders
    But dead weight's not known to please the shareholders
    We were making a killing
    with offshore drilling
    Exxon knew we'd end up here in the blue
    They knew
    So go and get your money belt
    Let's go watch the ice sheets melt
    You gotta break some eggs to make an omelette
    So who cares if lady liberty gets her feet a bit wet?

    [CHORUS]

    Welcome to
    New York City, Underwater City
    Life under the sea
    It may seem strange
    and it sure is a change
    from how things used to be

    But that world is gone
    That world is gone

    [PART 3]

    There's upsides to life on the deep ocean floor
    Drilling for oil is so much easier than before
    If you are hungry, come take a snack
    I've got some fish-sticks in my plastic bag
    Public transportation? I prefer castration
    Could you show me the way to the next gas station?
    Exploiting the earth may be akin to theft
    but why would we stop if there's still something left

    Welcome to New York City
    Welcome to Underwater City
    Welcome to New York City
    Coulda been avoided don't deserve no pity
    Welcome to New York City
    Welcome to Underwater City
    Coulda been avoided don't deserve no pity
  • Abuse the Snooze
    inspired by Foo Fighters

    Wake up, it's time.

    Open your eyes.


    You're caught up in your fantasies,
    you're making up your enemies,
    sleepwalking violently.
    Open up your blinds!


    This nightmare could end,
    but you continue to-
    stay in your head,
    and abuse the snooze.
    You just pretend-,
    you have a deafness to
    alarms calling out to you.
    Wake up, you're losing view.
    Get out of your bed!


    You blanket your weakness.
    Try to comfort your fall.
    All the nights you spend sleepless,
    you've learned nothing at all.

    Why do you still sleep in?
    You snore through your flaws.


    The rings around your eyes,
    the same shades of your life.
    Why can't you see?
    Why can't you see you still have time?
    Open your eyes...
    and welcome in the light,


    You're lost in all your memories,
    you're out of time to disagree,
    gotta let your mind breathe.
    Open up your eyes!


    This nightmare could end,
    but you continue to-
    lay in your bed,
    and abuse the snooze.
    You still pretend-,
    You have a deafness to
    alarms calling out to you.
    Wake up, you're losing view.
    Get me out of your bed


    I blanket my weakness.
    Try to comfort my fall.
    All the nights I've spent sleepless,
    I've learned nothing at all.


    So drowsy and dreamless,
    Why do I still sleep in?
    can't hear the,
    clock on the wall...!
  • Inspired by original lineup of ACDC

    Deep in your bed
    the charges were set
    treasure was mine to consume
    the timing was right
    took all of my might
    not to make the explosion too soon

    it was clear that we’d found
    love’s battle ground
    our passion was crossing the line
    the tick of the clock
    descends and wont stop
    I just might have run out of time

    powder keg
    light my fuse nothing to lose
    blow the load when I choose

    powder keg
    charges too deep no time for sleep
    a battle between the sheets

    powder keg
    left my power behind crossing a line
    never had lovin’ so fine

    powder keg
    keep it dry counting the time
    I’ll blow you sky
    high

    Without any doubt
    My mission found out
    The tables were turned on me now
    with a flick of the switch
    Destruction exists
    The sounds of our passion so loud

    A battle well fought
    The lessons you taught
    Laying in wait for a war
    Loves battleground
    Resistance not found
    You showed me what lovin was for

    powder keg
    light my fuse nothing to lose
    blow the load when I choose

    powder keg
    charges too deep no time for sleep
    a battle between the sheets

    powder keg
    left my power behind crossing a line
    never had lovin’ so fine

    powder keg,
    keep it dry counting the time
    I’ll blow you sky
    high

    boom!

    powder keg
    light my fuse nothing to lose
    blow the load when I choose

    powder keg
    charges too deep no time for sleep
    a battle between the sheets

    powder keg
    left my power behind crossing a line
    never had lovin’ so fine

    powder keg,

    I’ll blow you sky

    Elisa on the Lam
    (Based on a True Story)
    -------

    VERSE

    She was a student from Vancouver
    Traveling down to LA.
    She has something to prove
    Gonna do it her way
    To her parents she swore
    To phone every day
    But no calls anymore
    Made mom and dad so afraid

    She had posted her travels
    Online in her blog
    After the zoo it unraveled
    Suddenly she was gone
    The police had been called in
    To try and locate her
    They found a scary apalling
    Video - her in the elevator

    CHORUS
    The surveillance footage
    before Lam's disappearance
    No one understood it
    Lam acting strange, incoherent

    Talking to invisible people
    peering out the elevator door
    That was at the Hotel Cecil
    Then retreat to crouch on the floor

    Having the door open and close
    Hiding back in the corner
    With horror she froze
    Were there demons before her?

    VERSE 2

    The Cecil Hotel no stranger to horror
    Night Stalker Richard Ramirez lived there // Serial killer Jack Unterweger
    Rented, killed hookers without care.
    A woman jumper committed suicide
    And murdered one on the sidewalk below.
    Is this the place that Elisa died?
    Or is she somewhere they don't know?

    The Hotel had issues with the water supply.
    Water was coming out black
    It tasted rotten and putrified
    The oddly sweet taste took the tenants aback
    The authorities went up to the Cecil's roof
    When try saw her things, their hearts sank
    The opened the trap door, saw the heart-rending truth
    Elisa Lam's rotting body in the water tank.

    CHORUS
    The surveillance footage
    before Lam's disappearance
    No one understood it
    Lam acting strange, incoherent

    Talking to invisible people
    peering out the elevator door
    That was at the Hotel Cecil
    Then retreat to crouch on the floor!
  • Every one of us all is tainted by sin
    And I always strive, I strive to be better
    But my heart's weighted down. How can it be found
    Innocent when it's weighed against a feather?

    I've heard it be said if you've nothing to hide
    Then you've nothing to fear. Why am I afraid?
    If you saw who I am, who I really am
    You'd all turn and run, and no one would stay

    That's why it's so hard
    That's why I just can't

    Step out into the sun
    Into it's judging stare
    Feel it wash over me
    And strip my secrets bare

    And so I hide, I hide away in the dark
    Where you'll never see my wounds and sins and scars
    The dark is comfort, it accepts me as I am
    But it keeps me from being a better man

    My sins can't be faced
    While still in dark's embrace

    Step out into the sun
    Into it's judging stare
    Feel it wash over me
    And strip my secrets bare

    The dark is kind, and keeps me in its embrace
    It hides the tears that are running down my face
    It hides the thoughts that are running through my head
    That if I show could have me end up dead

    Step out into the sun
    Into it's judging stare
    Feel it wash over me
    And strip my secrets bare
    Strip my secrets bare

    Step out into the light
    Throw my head up to the sky
    Fearless of what I'll find
    To be me is not a crime
    (x3)

    Step out into the sun
    Into it's judging stare
    Feel it wash over me
    And strip my secrets bare
  • Inspired by Led Zeppelin

    Sometimes it feels like all that glitters is gold
    And sometimes it feels so unfair
    Good and bad times with the roll of the dice
    And you know I've had my share

    Been a long time since I've seen rock bottom
    In spite of all my losings before

    Now my life’s golden, I should take my bow
    But somehow I’m still left wanting more
    Gotta roll with the highs and the lows

    You win and you lose and with no sense of control

    Dealer’s choice at the end of the day
    The cards will fall where they may

    (solo)

    Gotta roll with the highs and the lows

    You win and you lose and with so sense of control

    Dealer’s choice at the end of the day
    The cards will fall where they may

    I know what it’s like to live day to day

    With death walking right by my side
    It’s not hard as it seems if you cling to the dream

    Crying won’t help you, praying won’t save you.......
  • Evie's Song

    Better not wonder where you are
    Whether you're lookin' up at starlight we would name as though we made it
    I never knew the way you fled
    Only a groove you left in my bed, and the turning of my season

    Evie, I can still read you on the wind
    Chasin' your echo
    You were a song without an end
    I got to move on
    I got to fill my own groove
    And I know you
    You won't look back on what you lose

    I don't dwell, I don't dwell on you
    Even though a hum compels me to
    Even though I need to know the truth

    Nothing undoes the fun we had
    Slipping under the waves at midnight, we were madly underrated
    So many words we left unsaid
    So many words were lost in my bed, when the pillows took our voices

    Evie, I can still read you on the wind
    Chasin' your echo
    You were a song without an end
    I got to move on
    I got to fill my own groove
    And I know you
    You won't look back on what you lose

    Evie, I can still read you on the wind
    Chasin' your echo
    You were a song without an end
    I got to move on
    I got to fill my own groove
    And I know you
    You won't look back on what you lose
  • (Inspired by the 2nd "Heaven and Hell" incarnation of Black Sabbath w/Ronnie James Dio)


    “Magic Judas”
    --------------
    You bled the light
    Now from your skin out pours the shame
    You feel it’s right
    The way you played your little game

    The world deludes us
    A kiss of venom on my back
    Magic Judas
    You disappear into the black

    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed

    The rainbow shines its seven colors
    The heavens tear apart my brothers
    As hell rises to claim my daughters
    We dive into these holy waters

    Now fear the light
    And fade back to the shadow’s flame
    Run and hide
    A lost man cannot be tamed

    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed (You tried to win the fight)
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed (You better run and hide)
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed (A lost man cannot be tamed)
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed (You thought that you were right)
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed (You better run and hide)
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed (A lost man cannot be tamed)
    Whoa oh I’m betrayed
  • In the style of The Script

    Save your heart for someone new
    Things get tough when all is blue
    Tried your best but it takes two
    I'm not deserving of you

    Save your heart, bury it deep
    Hope that lets you get some sleep
    Wishing, love, that you knew
    To save your heart for someone new

    I told her save your heart when she was only sixteen
    Told her she should follow her little girl dreams
    Told her she shouldn't spend her life looking backwards
    I don't know, love, I've got no answers

    Try
    All I see is her eyes
    Waterfalls pouring
    While mine are dry

    Save your heart for someone new
    Things get tough when all is blue
    Tried your best but it takes two
    I'm not deserving of you

    Save your heart, bury it deep
    Hope that lets you get some sleep
    Wishing, love, that you knew
    To save your heart for someone new

    22 a little bit older
    Keeps on keeping on marching like a soldier
    Still fighting for this love but I told her
    I’m a bad luck charm to her four leaf clover

    Try
    All I see is her eyes
    Waterfalls pouring
    While mine are dry

    So you keep on keeping strong
    And through it all your heart is long gone
    And we still fight and I still say your wrong
    But you're saying this is right where you belong

    Just think back to all the yesterdays
    How many times have I told you to walk away
    It's so easy just to go
    5000 reasons why you shouldn't stay

    Said save your heart before it's too late
    I opened the door, now walk through the gates
    In the end you and me equals pain
    Save your heart, for all that is great

    the face is the place where we show emotions
    happy or sad it’s what sets the mood in motion

    (rapped)
    if you cannot see someones face
    their intentions can be all over the place
    it’s sometimes too hard to get what the other person means
    things can come across much meaner than they first seem.

    on the top of our face we have two eyes that help others see
    if they might be barking up the wrong tree
    Our eyes light up when we are feeling good
    you can look into our eyes to see if you are being understood

    beneath our eyes sits our nose
    when we’re crying sometimes it gets runny like we have a cold
    it’s not the biggest player in this emotion game
    but it is part of the face just the same

    (sung)
    the face is the place where we show emotions
    happy or sad it’s what sets the mood in motion

    (rapped)
    there’s one other place on our face
    that lets other people know where our mind is in space
    its not just a something for speaking whats on your mind
    its a big big part of showing how our feelings actually are inclined

    our mouth is a key part in letting others know what is sitting deep within our heart
    a smile means we’re happy sure
    but a frown is the smiles slightly sadder counterpart

    a scowl is when your mouth let’s other people
    know what that anger might be imminent
    nothing wrong with that just don’t make it into something permanent

    (sung)
    the face is the place where we show emotions

  • See You Soon
    ------------------
    From the first day you’ve been my best friend
    From breakfast in the morning,
    To snuggles at the end
    And even when I left for work you always knew
    That you’d see me again

    Even though there’d come a day I knew
    You’d say goodbye to me,
    And I would say goodbye to you
    Now that you are ready,
    It’s really not an easy thing to do

    But I’m gonna see you soon
    Yeah I’m gonna see you soon

    Our friends are playing just past the rainbow
    Take your time, and when,
    You’ve lived a life and you are old,
    You can cross the bridge to where
    Our happy little lost ones go

    So I’m gonna see you soon
    I’m gonna see you soon x2

    And lead you into calamity

    Just sign the wall and walk away
    Take a life and be the one to pay
    For this evil game he's gonna play

  • Where is my body?
    Where are my arms?
    Have they been harvested
    For the organ farms?

    Last thing I remember
    Pulled into a van
    Now I'm dismembered
    Exist in a can

    I didn't deserve this
    Am I still a person?
    No funeral hearse,
    Now I'm just.a..

    A Brain in a Jar
    Insane and bizarre
    Permanently scarred
    No notion of God

    What can I do now?
    How I my life shaped?
    When.do the hours.
    Stop can give me escape?

    My hell is forever
    All I do is look
    My spinal cord severed
    My fate is forsook

    I didn't deserve this
    Am I still a person?
    No funeral hearse,
    Now I'm just.a..

    A Brain in a Jar
    Insane and bizarre
    Permanently scarred
    No notion of God
    Even Jesus can't save me
    Who could face this bravely?
    All there is for me
    Is this laboratory.....

    Emotional scars
    And what so I see?
    Hundreds of jars
    Containing being like me

    Then I see the truth
    My jar's turned around
    My body has moved
    My captor is found

    I didn't deserve this
    Am I still a person?
    No funeral hearse,
    Now I'm just.a..

    A Brain in a Jar

    Permanently scarred

    told me space was bountiful

    Your friends were gleaming with titanium eyes
    Your wetware team, they wore electrical ties
    So where am I

    When winter comes, I hope that I am the one

    You’ve got box seats for the starship race
    I guess your life is pretty commonplace
    Can I drop by….

    And the machine flies me  away

    I feel so free

    And you

    Belong with me

    You too

    Spread cloth wings

    The aerial sea

    With no boundary

    Steam billows high

    Our wings fluff and sway

    The wood creaks in time

    The machine flies us away

    Pedal the chopper

    Blades spin faster

  • [Deep inside the darkness of Moria a Troll chants a warning into the ears and of his fellow trolls]

    Hear my Olog
    in the dark demon follows
    I fear you my Olog
    these halls far are from hollow

    Olog-hai
    much we tell we tell no lie
    you hear cry
    olog-hai tells be afraid not die

    Bal Garmadh x3 (like Fire Ruins)

    Nar Udautas
    fire ruins, fire walks
    Nar Udautas
    fire spit, fire burns

    Hear my Olog
    in the dark demon follows
    I fear you my Olog
    these halls far are from hollow

    Hear my olog
    In the hollow, darkness flourish, fire follows
    Olog-hai
    fire spit, fire cries
    be afraid not die

    Crumbling rocks and rolling stones
    greenish scales and black-red blood

  • SOCK PUPPET
    -----------
    Oh? You thought It was real?
    I spent so much time creating how you should feel
    An architect of frustration
    Your misery is my inspiration

    And at the point where you lose control
    Chaos reigning I’m the only one in the know
    In other guise we could’ve been friends
    But keeping track is confusing in the end

    CHORUS
    I’m a sock puppet
    and nothing is real
    I don’t think I could really stop
    Don’t even know how I feel - anymore!
    I’m a sock puppet
    and nothing is real
    I don’t think I could really stop
    Don’t even know how I feel - anymore!

    My joy lies in the manipulation
    My masters want to exploit the situation
    And we just aim to sow confusion
    You take it back home. Now who's losin’?

    CHORUS
    I’m a sock puppet
    and nothing is real
    I don’t think I could really stop
    Don’t even know how I feel - anymore!
    I’m a sock puppet
    and nothing is real
    I don’t think I could really stop
    Don’t even know how I feel - anymore!

    I water the seeds I’ve sewn
    Pain, doubt, regret
    Making you doubt what you know
    Keepin’ those fires lit!

    But now its getting kinda old
    Pretending to be another soul
    Twisting your words against you
    As long it's upsetting -
    I can't lose!

    CHORUS
    I’m a sock puppet
    and nothing is real
    I don’t think I could really stop
    Don’t even know how I feel - anymore!
    I’m a sock puppet
    and nothing is real
    I don’t think I could really stop
    Don’t even know how I feel - anymore!
  • I put it down
    I bring it up
    I'm like a loaded gun
    and when the time is come
    I’m gonna shoot my load

    Blowing to pieces
    all that blocks me falls around
    you’ll never bring me down
    no no, not in my town

    Turn the volume up now, feel the waves kiss the sound
    extend the bars, get it really hard, gotta get this done
    it’s not about rushing up, let the adrenaline flow
    I don’t miss a chance, I am gonna reach my goals

    Another perfect moment
    gonna get down

    Take it deep down, let the river flow
    I bring it up
    I'm like a loaded gun

    Take it deep down, gotta get this done
    blowing it all
    with my loaded gun

    Bring it all out, in overload
    There's no way to stop, no there’s not stoppin' now

    Tension slowly building up
    I get the highs and beat the lows
    and in my mind there are no walls
    with a bang I’ll blow it all down

    Tension slowly building up
    I get the highs and beat the lows
    and in my mind there are no walls

    Take it deep down, let the river flow

  • {Intro}
    (Instrumental)
    {Verse}
    I caught a glimpse of you from far away
    But I could never quite find the perfect words to say
    I don't know if you know I've wanted you for so long
    So I set myself to write you the perfect song
    {Bridge}
    But I can dream it
    I can scheme it
    But with, pen in hand, I can't achieve it
    Though I keep trying
    There's no denying that
    {Chorus}
    (It's never the way I dreamed it
    The playback plays and I can't believe it's true
    Oh Mr guitar how do you do the things that you do
    it never sounds quite like it did, when I heard it asleep in bed
    So Mrs sunshine, if you don't mind, I'll just try something different instead)
    {Verse 2}
    So I took a seat and wrote some chords down and
    Realized that my skills were all shut down
    Couldn't rhyme with purple
    Why does nothing rhyme with purple?
    {Bridge}
    But I can dream it
    I can scheme it
    But with, pen in hand, I can't achieve it
    Though I keep trying
    There's no denying that
    {Chorus}
    (It's never the way I dreamed it
    The playback plays and I can't believe it's true
    Oh Mr guitar how do you do the things that you do
    it never sounds quite like it did, when I heard it asleep in bed
    So Mrs sunshine, if you don't mind, I'll just try something different instead)
    {Verse 3}
    I tried to write the song for so long but
    After smashing my head against my desk
    I realized that it was for the best
    That I just stopped
    {Bridge}
    Because I can dream it
    I can scheme it
    But with, pen in hand, I can't achieve it
    Though I keep trying
    There's no denying that
    {Chorus}
    (It's never the way I dreamed it
    The playback plays and I can't believe it's true
    Oh Mr guitar how do you do the things that you do
    it never sounds quite like it did, when I heard it asleep in bed
    So Mrs sunshine, if you don't mind, I'll just tell you that I love you instead)
    {Outro}
    I'll just tell you that I love you instead

    Music man took his own spin on a few lyrics so this is mostly accurate.
  • Happy at times, gloomy otherwise
    Dark layers circle around at times
    I fight them off in quest for elation
    But that feeling has tough revelation


    That is just how I feel
    That is just how I feel


    Speak in your own way
    And you don’t have much say
    Is this the right path to go on
    Or will it lead me to be a pile on

    Feeling good in the center of this moment
    Then later thinking why oh why
    I was left just wondering.
    The one in green, not so keen
    Why am I focused on you


    That is just how I feel
    That is just how I feel


    I found myself
    Sitting in a familiar position
    With my eyes gazing
    At the urgency of every decision

    From beginning to end
    I'm sick of the plastic peeps
    Finding any reason to get offended
    Like anyone needs your two cents
    The one in green, not so keen
    Why am I focused on you


    That is just how I feel
    That is just how I feel


    You open your mouth
    Then ask me, "How should I feel?"
    Like my mind is a highlight reel
    But you don’t appeal

    It's no more fun like
    Your everyday blackmail
    Is just a scheme to feel
    And if it suits your needs
    Fuck all, if they cannot heal

    You open your mouth
    Then ask me, "How should I feel?"
    Like my mind is a highlight reel
    But you don’t appeal

    It's no more fun like
    Your everyday blackmail
    Is just a scheme to feel
    And if it suits your needs
    Fuck all, if they cannot heal

    You open your mouth
    You open your mouth
    You open your mouth
    You open your mouth
  • I burnt pictures in my head,
    can’t imagine that they’d reach you friend,
    for too long I’ve been trying,
    to bring you back from the brink of dying.

    And in my dreams there’s no denying,
    the happiness that you’re supplying,
    while awake you felt like dying,
    I just don’t want to let you go.


    Dream, you always dreamed,
    of a better place where we could be,

    So please baby please,
    don’t leave me, don’t leave me to be,

    You’re in a place,
    Where I can’t reach you now.

    When I fall asleep at night,
    Thoughts of you I hold so tight,


    They map your thoughts with electrodes,
    The doctor said you’ll probably let go,

    I really hope that you can hear me,
    Without you I’m not thinking clearly.

    I just wish you were awake with me,
    instead of living in your dreams,
    Where you’re out of reach.

    But please just hold on,
    Please come back to me.


    Dream, you always dreamed,
    of a better place where we could be,

    So please baby please,
    don’t leave me, don’t leave me to be,

    You’re in a place,
    Where I can’t reach you now.

    When I fall asleep at night,
    Thoughts of you I hold so tight,

    So please hold on come back to me.
  • I gave my plans to a man for a second hand dream
    It was faded and bent and unraveled at the seam
    I still saw the beauty in what it could be
    Seemed too perfect to miss and he let go easily

    Now Im fine cause its mine its something I can mend
    Ill straighten at the bend , fix the seam and then
    Open up the top and pour my passion in
    And I know somehow it will be worth it in the end

    Chorus
    Reverie has never got me far
    Never sought to catch a falling star
    Just always happy with the way things are
    Until I found this, nothing was worth it to me
    But Id give everything for a second hand dream

    dreams just stalling with you

    From all of this I will ascend

    You deserve to be free and I want to ascend

    You, you deserve to be free
    and I, want to just let you be
    From my dreams I’m trying to still wake up
    Somehow we'll get through this and we will make up

    Deserve to be free,
    Just let me be
    and See that it's not
    Forever....

    Imagine you'd agree and remain a friend

    Deserve to be free!
    Out of my dreams!

    We're just stalling...
    myself a fool

    Really something
    Definition of cool

    Out of love
    now we were falling

    My dreams just
    stalling with you

    We're here, will all of this end
    An idea, I will ascend

    Imagine you'd agree and remain a friend
    You deserve to be free and I want to ascend

    Out of love,
    I'm falling
    Now we're
    just stalling.

  • Red light flux
    Closing eyes in time
    Somewhere, I'll end up tonight

    Vivid thoughts
    This slow wave gathers
    Soothing force and beauty stutters

    Draw the cards
    Throw them to the air
    Worn paths reveal new answers

    Fill the earth
    With these seeds of old
    Gifted weights to take beyond

    Familiar drone and dreary flicker
    At least the world I lost
    won't remember

    Familiar drone and dreary flicker
    At least the world I lost
    won't remember

    Fill the earth
    With these seeds of old
    Gifted weights to take beyond

    Familiar drone and dreary flicker
    At least the world I lost
    won't remember

    Familiar drone and dreary flicker
    At least the world I lost
    won't remember
  • Going, through the motions
    I cant see whats in front of me
    And time drags on at such a slow speed
    Lulls me back into serenity

    In my dreams, everything is okay
    In my dreams, everything is fine
    And I guess I should wake up eventually
    But I can't think of a reason why

    Waiting for the sun to rise
    It's always darkest before the dawn
    It's no use to sit still and agonize
    I can't help but not want to carry on

    Floating through space and time
    The only way to find what's on my mind woah
    I cant know whats real or not so
    I take everything with a grain of salt
    And I like things by my own design
    That's why I might say I don’t have the time
    My vibe is precious yup,
    The only way I know that you won’t fuck it up.

    In my dreams, everything is okay
    In my dreams everything is fine
    And I guess I should wake up eventually
    But I can't think of a reason why



  • Babe made of whims and bones
    Lain out alive
    Born out in ordinary times
    He cries

    "Don't leave me here
    Alone
    I'm not myself
    How could I know?
    And should I find
    A mirror mild
    It may not frame
    A child"

    As he made ways
    Seldom scrutinized
    He could hardly leave a day's beliefs unanalyzed

    "Am I awake yet?
    Is this final?
    Will my eye deceive me
    When I see me?"

    Dream of what you need to become
    "Am I awake yet?"
    Fire in the clay when you're done
    "Is this final?"
    Settle on an elegant one
    "Will my mind deceive me?"
    Perceive yourself and try not to run
    "When I see me"

    As he shaped up
    Sure identity
    He could hardly spare a day's accounts for memory
    When he comes to
    From philosophizing
    He may be surprised to find that life has passed him by

    May he wake well
    To the looking glass beside
    And dare to face
    The face he never could describe

    No one will come searching
    If you decide to hide again
    Better then to set stone
    And be someone alone

    "I must be awake
    In this gentle light I see
    I'm an ordinary man
    How could I know I'd be?"

    "I must be awake
    In this gentle light I see
    I'm an ordinary man
    How could I know I'd be?"
  • [intro]
    If you ask me what I'd change in this rugged life I lead
    Though ashamed of my reply: "everything, everything, everything"
    And so I did, but look where it got me
    And so I did, but look what it cost me

    [Door I]
    "Why'd you leave the door wide open?"
    the missus said in a puzzled tone;
    "Where's the child? Where's the child?"
    she yelled, but our son was gone

    I never considered myself to be
    the perfect parent, the finest father
    There's times I make absurd demands
    And others I don't even bother

    But this one was my own mistake
    So I ran and, for goodness' sake
    I prayed what I saw wasn't real
    No, not my son under four wheels

    A muted scream, a muffled cry
    She ran past me straight to hell
    She couldn't dare look at me
    I couldn't dare look at myself

    I can't tell how, I don't know why
    But all this felt like one big lie
    As if I could alter my fate
    As if it wasn't all too late

    [Door II]
    "Why'd you leave the door wide open?"
    my daughter laughed and swung it close;
    "I thought you were right behind me
    and I didn't wanna hit you in the nose"

    My girl was pretty and pretty smart
    Sweetest dove with a big heart
    She didn't look like my late wife
    But my wife from another life

    My girl was pretty and pretty smart
    Sweetest dove with a big heart
    A heart too big for her tiny chest
    I knew one day it'd want to rest

    I couldn't bear that ugly thought
    That she'd be gone and I would not
    Her predicament had to change fast
    Or that day would be one of our last

    So I prayed to the gods above
    And I cried to the hells below
    If they could give me one more chance
    to see my baby grow

    I can't tell how, I don't know why
    But all this felt like it was a dream
    When she collapsed dead in my arms
    I couldn't shake the feeling that this was all a scheme

    [Door III]
    "Why'd you leave the door wide open?"
    one guard said to the other
    I could've escaped if I wanted to
    But I couldn't bother

    Which life's this now? Seventh? Ninth?
    I stopped counting on number four
    The multiverse keeps giving me chances
    That all start with that fucking door

    All wrong, all wrong
    Everything I do is all wrong
    So the day starts anew
    With a brand new song

    All wrong, all wrong
    Everything goes wrong all the time
    This time I think they're offing me
    for a petty crime

    I can't tell how, I don't know why
    But I think this might be my last
    No family ties, no sad goodbyes
    Probably free, at last

    [outro]
    If you ask me what I'd change in this rugged life I lead
    Though ashamed of my reply: "everything, everything, everything"
    And so I did and to this day
    I wish I'd done it some other way
  • I'm gonna kill them all
    with strawberry cotton candy, milky ways
    I'm gonna fill their heads
    with spoons of cough syrup and rum


    I'll crossword some Lavander, Vodka
    throw in there E-m-p (empathy), that will give marinade
    they gonna get so high, higher than the moon

    I'm gonna kill them all
    with strawberry cotton candy, milky ways
    I'm gonna fill their heads
    with spoons of cough syrup and rum

    and a rocket from my pocket that will blow who we am
    and the feelings will be all of joy
    in my sweet Lovecamp

    and we'll make poems with cliches and pheromones (here and there)
    then everybody gonna be gay
    I heard love is an skill
    can be taught and learnt
    and with the falling of the beats
    we will play the game


    The queen of England is naked
    and disinformation runs like plagues
    the tabloids spread fake news
    with grenades of poison, bleach and flashbangs of hate

    I'm gonna kill them all
    with strawberry cotton candy, milky ways
    I'm gonna fill their heads
    with spoons of cough syrup and rum


    I’m feeling sick and tired of this whole charade
    so let’s stand and make a parade!

    Closer to the moon

    No, the stars can't see me
    But they've gone too far

    This place for you and I
    I've had enough
    And it's time to leave the sky

    I've got you down
    I've got this out
    There's just enough time
    There's not enough doubt

    And anytime you look out
    Do the stars know?
    And everytime they look in
    Have you seen them go?

    There's still time
    Still time

    I can't stop to
    Breathe you'll see me
  • A new country.
    A new life.
    Turning over a new leaf, as they say, but the leaf is stained and blackened with soot.

    Mother is all by herself now.
    Abandoned... or outgrown.
    The factory is my mother now, as much as I hate to say it.

    I wash the dust off every night, but it's always there the next day.
    Working its way under my fingernails.

    Towards the void
    out of power
    going nowhere
    a 1000 miles an hour

    set aside
    forgotten by time
    building nothing
    dime by dime

    wandering
    the streets at night
    aimless drifter
    but what do I find

    A glimpse at hope
    an unturned stone
    not just a woman
    a love of my own

    Under a clouded sky
    life finds a way to thrive
    the future is always bright
    when you have found the light

    never been here before
    i've so much now to wake up for
    never been out the door
    to bask in the golden rays!

    And just as swiftly as she came about, she was gone again.
    Sweeping up all the joys and sucking up the colour out of the world.
    The factory is my companion now, and i will let myself fall into its cold embrace.

    Love is just a verse in the life of a working man.
  • PARTS OF MY LIFE
    --------------------------
    (Guitars by Scott Pontiac)

    PARTS OF MY LIFE
    ----------------
    CHILDHOOD

    When I was young , the world was wide open
    Just having fun, Playing and joking
    How could I know about teenage angst
    Why would I care about giving thanks
    Live for the moment, no reason to plan
    It’s all just enjoyment, before becoming a man
    Taking for granted the freedom I had
    Enjoying the good, not knowing the bad

    CHORUS

    Which parts of my life are considered the best?
    The one without strife, who would have have guessed,
    Had it so good, but now it’s all changed
    Maybe I should just try and arrange
    The parts of my life that I want to keep
    Get rid of the times that prevent me from sleep!

    TEEN YEARS

    Struggle through high school, getting in fights
    Drinking and partying all through the night
    So stuck in my head, that I can’t look up
    Not planning, instead, just try to hook up
    How could I care about money and work
    Why would I dare to be planned and alert?
    Taking for granted the freedom I had
    Enjoying the good, not knowing the bad

    CHORUS

    Which parts of my life are considered the best
    It’s hard to decide, when viewing the rest,
    Had it so great, but now it’s all changed
    Maybe I should have acted more strange
    What parts of my life do I want to stay
    Get rid of the times I was alone and afraid

    ADULT YEARS

    Now I am working, providing for things
    Earning the money and all that it brings,
    Stuck in a pattern, not realizing the time
    I was spending forever, just standing in line
    Punching the clock, awaiting my turn
    But how much cash do I need to earn
    To sell away all of the freedom I had
    Forgetting the good so I can pay for the sad

    CHORUS

    Which parts of my life are considered the best
    I know it’s not when I was most stressed
    Had it so great, but now it’s all changed
    My time for the money is what I exchanged
    What parts of my life do I want to remain
    Get rid of the times I was exhausted and strained

    ELDER YEARS

    Now I am old, and I have to look back
    Was all of my time spent on the right track
    Now death is closer, the end’s drawing near
    All I can do is look back on the years
    What did I make of the world that I had
    I did make a family, now a granddad
    I think it’s the children that mean most for my life
    They will outlast me, my marriage an wife

    CHORUS

    Which parts of my life are considered the best
    It’s hard for me now, now that I’m pressed
    Had it so great, but now it’s old age
    The book of life’s ending, no turning the page
    What parts of my life do I want to recall
    I think that I want to remember it all



    [All parts were recorded in time but track was never mixed]
  • VIDEO GAMES WITH DAD Lyrics:

    I'm a self-reliant person, a little too loud
    who tries to understand it when things don't work out, but I will

    look up in the sky and feel that you're there, 'cause I
    need some inspiration and someone who cares, but

    I'll always treasure the good times we've had
    I'm sitting playing video games with my dad
    although we're disconnected, I have to go on
    and I will always miss him, but I need to be strong

    I'm an independent person, a little too proud
    who does not under stand when, thinks don't work out, but I will
    look down at the ground and know that you're here, 'cause I
    want to make you proud of me, but cherish my tears

    I'll always treasure the good times we've had
    I'm sitting playing video games with my dad
    Now we are unplugged, and I'm all grown up, but I'm
    Missing you and showing you what I've become

    I'll always treasure the good times we've had
    I'm sitting playing video games with my dad
    although we're disconnected, I have to go on
    and I will always miss him, I need to be strong

    I'll always treasure the good times we had
    I'm sitting playing video games with my dad
    Now we are unplugged, and I'm all grown up, but I'm
    Missing you and showing you what I've become

    I'll always treasure the good times we've had
    I'm sitting playing video games with my dad
  • You washed up on our shore
    From some impossible beyond
    Swore by the strange sign on your sword
    To wake the dreamer with a song

    So tell me, lost traveller in green
    Of all the wondrous lands you've seen
    You tell me none of this is real
    But it's all I've known and ever will

    But If the dream must end then let it die
    Let the sea and stone all fade to mist
    Sail off to the place you need to save
    Let only our memory exist

    But if the dream must end
    Then so will I


    I watched you make your way
    And bring down all the nightmares one by one
    Adventuring to your one escape
    To play and see the dream undone

    Awaken, lost traveller so brave
    On distant shores a princess waits
    Go onward to worlds I never knew
    And let us all live on in you

    But If the dream must end then let it die
    Let the sea and stone all fade to mist
    Sail off to the place you need to save
    Let only our memory exist

    I've always wondered
    When the seagulls leave the shore
    Where do they go
    Was it my gift or curse to finally know

    But If the dream must end then let it die
    Let the sea and stone all fade to mist
    Sail off to the place you need to save
    Let only our memory exist
  • [Slow, melodic, syllables pick up the pace]
    Stay awake in the quiet of the night
    Screen burn my only source of light
    Comfortable weight of my new headphones
    Wrapped up in a world that's all my own

    [Quicker, more of a patter song]
    I seek connection and I find here
    I can do whatever I want to, yeah
    I'm a soldier; a spy; a general; a leader
    A rocket powered car; or a champion at FIFA
    There's endless worlds and endless space
    And when I get bored there's always place
    I'm never never never running out things to explore
    I've conquered the world and I wanna conquer more

    [First section again]

    Sometimes you find a challenge you can't overcome
    And if feels so special when you figure out how it's done
    Well, this game ain't never gonna beat me
    No, it's never gonna beat me
    Just one more try before I go to sleep
    Can't leave it undone, though, I just gotta keep
    Trying until I can't see through retinal burns
    Of this game against my eyelids - one more turn

    [Slow, melodic again]
    Gently, dawn creeps into my room
    Probably should get some sleep real soon
    The world is coming back to light
    And I'll leave my virtual life
  • Faster than light we're driving all night
    breaking the game to feel alive
    be my copilot it'll feel alright
    we're getting ahead, just one more time!


    I like to feel the speed of sound
    and dabbing through the beats
    we’ll win the price
    be my game, my partner in crime
    we’ll beat em all, those everytime

    They will never see us coming x3
    They will never see us coming
    They will never see us coming

    Shit-tons of coins, some powerups
    we’ll be racing Out of Control
    we’ll go faster than the speed of sound
    we’re much faster than the speed of sound


    Those 3D voxels got in my head-set
    laser everywhere help me Virtual Boy!
    psychedelic noises and bits everywhere
    I don’t know what's real
    but this for sure does feel real.


    Oh boy, game on!
    Oh boy, game on!

    They will never see us coming
    They will never see us coming
    They will never see us coming


    Six meters to the finish line
    if we don’t make it it’ll be all right
    but we’re so close, I’m ready to start
    less fire the engines
    we will feel alive

    We’re always racing, together, everyday
    We’re always racing, together, everyday
    We’re always racing, together, everyday
    We’re always racing, together, everyday
  • And now she's gone again,
    spellbound by the beast.
    Am I the hero meant to save her?
    Duty calls me to the east.
    With heavy sword and shadow,
    and a whisper in my head.
    Six crystals to recover,
    and then I'll put this beast to bed.

    It follows me in the broad daylight,
    and crawls the walls down in the dark.
    It knows my each and every movement.
    It can see inside my heart.
    It's a raincloud on my lack of judgement
    It wants nothing more than to ground my spark
    and I know nothing...

    I blunder 'cross the desert
    cut through forest, over plains.
    Fair maiden, I'll be there soon
    If it pleases you - my pain.
    "It sounds a bit like righteousness"
    - that old familiar voice.
    Yeah, it feels so common, this whole story,
    but did I ever have a choice?

    When you dragged me around by the ankles,
    I still stood guard for you at night.
    Could you just take the time to listen?
    Cause we don't need this final fight.
    How many times must you save her?
    When she just jumps back to trouble's arms.
    You know nothing,
    so I know you will...

    The final golden palace stands before us.
    I've come to far to turn back now.
    and if we have to do it all again
    I'll be starting right about now.

    Well I tried to wash away that dust haze,
    and I tried to bring you down to earth.
    One more step towards that futile conquest,
    And I can promise this is going to hurt.
    I can promise this is going to hurt.
  • Sighting the gates of the castle,
    Seething with hate, the evil's vassal
    Awaits, with dire straits he creates
    From existing, the suffering has gone too long
    This land needs a settling, a cleanse of the wrong

    [VILLAIN]
    Am I mightier than you expected?
    How does the ground taste?
    Your kingdom now twice is desolated
    And forever shall it remain disgraced

    But failing was part of the plan
    For as soon as the duel began
    Our "warrior", not trying to outmatch
    Attached traps every chance he could catch

    He stumbles
    He falls
    He's dead
    He roars
    VICTORY!

    One does not need to be a fighter
    A knight, an archer, a sorcerer
    To free his people and his land from villainy
    All you need is a brain, some gear, and a lot of recovery
  • Soft brown fur
    Hugging my legs and feet
    Reds, blues, greens
    Beautiful computer memory

    Chirping, beeping
    Flickering on the screen
    Power in my hands
    Mom’s dinner anxious for me

    Yesterday
    Wasn’t so far away
    But that was so long ago

    Colors fade to gray
    Dead pixel memory
    The game can never be the same

    Matted, beaten earth
    Into which my legs sink
    Here lies my mirth
    Game over like a blink

    A cartridge tilt
    A level skip
    Infinite coins
    Infinite pit

    Yesterday
    Wasn’t so far away
    But that was so long ago

    Colors fade to gray
    Dead pixel memory
    The game can never be the same

    Yesterday
    Wasn’t so far away
    But that was so long ago

    Colors fade to gray
    Dead pixel memory
    The game can never be the same

    Yesterday
    Wasn’t so far away
  • Take me back to 1992
    I’m all by myself with nothing else to do
    Outside my room lays danger and hatred
    So take me back where my controller decides my fate

    Whether it’s starfox or Super Mario
    A Link to the Past or Indiana Jones
    Karting, F-Zero, and Dragon Quest slimes
    Even ninja turtles twisting around time

    So take me back to 1992
    Everything turned back to simple
    Where I’m all by myself with nothing else to do
    And rid my life of all its riddles

    Simple sprites
    Meant a simpler life

    Lack of RAM
    Meant stories had to land

    In the realm
    Of the never improbable

    Take me back
    To where everything is possible

    So take me back to 1992
    Everything turned back to simple
    Where I’m all by myself with nothing else to do
    And rid my life of all its riddles

    But they got my dreams in hand
    A lonely boy
    He took a final stand
    He and his wondrous toy

    So take me back to 1992
    Everything turned back to simple
    Where I’m all by myself with nothing else to do
    And rid my life of all its riddles
  • We're no good for each other
    We know we've never been
    Its not love its just comfort
    That we keep falling in
    This time when you're leaving
    Cause that's when my memory
    Chases you down

    You say you're moving on on on
    But you're not really gone gone gone

    Til' you're out of breathe and you can't feel me
    It's for the best though it might kill me
    When there is no place to hide
    And I'm coming in from every side

    I'm too weak not give in
    So you'll have to be strong
    Cause this devoured obsession
    Has been mine all along
    Setting traps with your feelings
    Bated breath at your door
    I'm coming from nowhere
    Just like before

    Til' you're out of breathe and you cant feel me
    It's for the best though it might kill me
    When there is no place to hide
    They're closing in from every side
  • https://youtu.be/rHv_R69lnOA

    I
    fell down a tree,
    while you
    ran away from me

    I wish
    the time was near
    when you won't look away

    baby understand,
    and fly...
    fly away with me

    5 minutes I've been waiting
    Filling your walls with my paintings
    and in my mind we've been dating
    a couple of years or so
    (or that's what people say)

    so let's give a ride
    a ride to the Moon
    I'll give you dreams
    and all the Saturn rings
    we'll get away
    find another name

    We will blow clouds
    Let's breathe the clouds now
    Let's be the clouds now


    I fell down a tree,
    there I broke my clock
    maybe I'll miss my hopes
    but after all...

    I didn't lose at all
    I found you and me
    I found you and me
    I found you and me

    verse 1
    Send a call out towards the end of what I see before me
    Meet the echo, break a neck on what the hell is in store
    Hungrier by half than what the dirt can bestow to me
    Take the fall, damn it all, and never dare to look back

    bridge
    Crack the curve, shed the earth, get up off my feet now
    Settle up and buckle in, gotta work it out to stand my ground

    verse2 half
    Bend a lucky break and tell 'em that I wanted more
    Take a risk I made and show 'em what I made it for

    chorus
    The world's not used to waiting, must be so damn agitating
    No narrow band of rocky pull could ever bring me down
    Won't compromise or trade in, this moment I've created
    From out of thin air

    solo

    verse3
    Set a line across the end of what I see below me
    Let the record there reflect that I struck through ( so true
    Step along a path I paved, almost crazier than brave
    Cut it fine, felt the grind, and born again from blue

    chorus
    The world don't like to waver, on fly-by violators
    No green between my knees can ever drown it out
    Can't count on Gaia's favor, while cresting in equator
    So deep beneath the surface of my doubt

    outro
    Crack the curve, shed the earth, get up off my feet now
    Settle up and buckle in, we might never see the ground
    Crack the curve, shed the earth, get up off my feet now
    Settle up and buckle in, we might never see the ground

    inside my head
    I am looking for your memories
    picking pins in hay
    Just a minute before
    I carried them
    Now there's a layer of smoke
    somewhere inside my head

    Clearly remember you dancing
    through the shining light
    you were next to me
    I am sure you were on someting
    probably
    ectasy
    Sometimes I wonder if you are
    the friend I need
    Sometimes I wonder if you are
    the enemy

    Do you to sift through the mess you made
    inside your head
    Do you look for my memories
    picking pins in hay
    I think a while ago
    you carried them
    locked away
    somewhere inside your head

    it takes me over
    Make new again
    in resolutions

    So strip me of my pride
    and give me a new name
    along a voideed fight
    I'll never be the same
    this time I'll get it right
    and left me up again

  • Another year goes by
    And I just watch the clock
    I've lost my will to try
    Ten years and nothing's changed

    I used to love the lights
    I'd go out in the crowds
    Now silence fills my nights
    Acquaintences all estranged


    My new year's resolution
    Is filled with destitution
    It may not sound like much
    My goal is to get out of bed

    Wish I could tell a story
    A sympathetic tragedy
    In sickness there is no glory
    No reason for my disease

    Depression has no cure
    No cause, no explanation
    No need to read the brochure
    Lose your mind in causation


    My new year's resolution
    It doesn't have solution
    I'll make it through another year
    And hope to shed this stifling fear

    Wish I could tell a story
    A sympathetic tragedy
    In sickness there is no glory
    No reason for my disease

    Depression has no cure
    No cause, no explanation
    No need to read the brochure
    Lose your mind in causation
  • Late in the Year
    ----------------
    Just because a song will end
    Doesn't mean we can't sing it

    Sooner or later, an eternal song
    True love will bring it

    PRECHORUS
    Don't you give up on you, Don't you go back to her
    You must resolve to be new, This is a new year

    CHORUS
    The fear of drowning
    shouldn't cause a fear of the sea
    You don't need to stand tall,
    just don't bend the knee

    Right now, I'm making myself strong
    I can't be the mess that I used to be
    This day I'll be the good guy
    and not just bruised debris

    CHORUS 2
    We all think we have found the one,
    but there's nobody that will fit it all
    True love's the one that will survive,
    it runs, it walks, and then it crawls
    I now must just stay afloat
    It's on me whom I now need to dote
    Writing out this tiny little note
    A future me will see just what I wrote...what I wrote....

    PROLOGUE

    Sitting by myself, silent
    Trying, to find a guarantee
    Look, I'm not violent...
    I will rescue me....

    EPILOGUE
    There are songs that, we can't hear
    these songs - will end....
    Closure or a Godsend?

  • This is our Christmas song
    so lets sing it as we get along
    Christmas gifts may be under trees
    but all I need for you is me.

    Jingle bells and some fruit cake
    lit some letters don't be a play (charade)
    all I need from you is a little while
    and under the mistletoe a smile.

    And we'll both will sing along
    to your favorite Christmas songs
    I'm gonna draw your family with a smile
    everything is gonna be alright

    Some cookies with your name in them
    It'll be sweet but there's no other way
    who cares if we're still in the line
    we will cheat at least on this one night.

    And when the sky is lit with fireworks
    let's get drunk with wine and eggnog
    I got some grapes for our luck next year
    all I wish is you and me.

    And we'll both will sing along
    to your favorite Christmas songs
    I'm gonna draw your family with a smile
    everything is gonna be alright

    And when we Christmas is said and gone
    and the candles are unlit and done
    I'll see in your eyes the sea
    and I'll paint there the frenesí
  • Snowed in at 25 Beech again
    Winter came early to me
    Lucky there's beans in the pantry and jolly repeats on the radio

    Look honey, there goes the heat again
    Least I'll die listenin' to Crosby
    Thought that I mailed out my annual Jack Frost protection money

    This year I tried to sidestep the season
    Now I fear the cold is trying me for treason

    Strike out my 10:30 flight
    What I'd give for the gift of a temperate clime
    Even some coal would be fine
    Maybe I'm a baby, but it's cold inside

    Joys abound, there's the heat back
    Time to climb down from Mt. Blanket
    Don't know if I could have taken much more

    Let's get some life into 25 Beech
    I've got more cheer than the weather could leech
    Lacking a tree, but I've got some fanciful lights In that pantry

    Fa la la la la
    Ho Ho Ho
    Oohhhh

    This year I'll try to thaw myself
    With a little bit of shoreline sensibility
    Do you see the sea, as I do?
    Sparkling like merry electricity

    I can imagine the waves
    Even as Jingle Bells plays
    Let's hear Sandy Claws slay like this, even on Christmas day

    Hangin' five at 25 Beech
    The only enticing ice is in my drink
    At midnight there's a bonfire at Fire Place
    I wonder what Nick would think

    Sand angels standing top the palm

    Ain't gonna rain, dear, it's balmy here

    Cloven clops emerging from coconuts

    I think I hear the snowplows come to clear
  • A Place to Sing:

    I can hear the snow slowly dripping down the window pane
    And the sound is merry
    And there's champagne and cherry
    But the cold solitude is driving me insane

    I'm stopping by the woods and I think I wanna stay here
    The winter's stony keep is my palace and I'm the king
    The trees all around are my subjects
    But all I ever wanted was a place to sing

    I can taste the Christmas cake
    There's a wait for the new year
    With stout hearts and a little fear
    But all I can think of is the past year we'll forsake

    I feel like all I ever do is live in the past and I think I wanna stay here
    The winter's desolate keep is my palace and I'm the king
    Waging campaigns against my own self
    But all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing

    I can feel the dew on my skin
    The morning breeze freezes the pond
    But it can't freeze the life beyond
    I can feel a growing strength within

    I guess there's a tomorrow to come, and maybe I wanna stay there
    The warm hearth in my room is my palace, and I'm the king
    I don't really need a kingdom, all here is mine
    I think that after all, I do have a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
    all I ever wanted was a place to sing
  • Isn't it lovely?
    The glowing
    that eminates from the fire place

    Snowflakes are slowly
    descending
    Our hearts beating at a heightened pace

    The cousins are playing
    and anticipating
    The gifts that they're praying
    shall come to realize their Christmas dreams

    Isn't it lovely?
    Aroma
    The firplace, and pine and hot cocoa

    Getting the loved ones
    together
    With Tinsel,and wine, and mistletoe

    Coming together
    joining hands at the table
    and blessing a meal
    for family and friends to treasure
    Hoping we never
    Take for granted the avail
    of bonding with people
    Valuable and beyond measure

    Yeah, it's lovely
    Spending time with the whole family while the snow comes down
    It's so lovely
    Brimming with excitement over the christmas tree with gifts all beneath it
    Yeah, it's lovely
    But none of this is possible without who's here, keeping in the spirit
    It's so lovely
    Gathering the loved ones under this one roof, singing for who'd hear it

    It's the season for letting
    The people around you be enough
    The magic you're getting
    is the company of the ones you love
    and as you close your eyes
    Sleigh bells are heard from up above
    Start to realize
    a Christmas that we've been dreaming of

    In morning time snowfall, where santa is long gone
    we find a most christmasy scene
    Awaken to find that the gifts left behind
    are exactly the things that you dreamed
    although you're excited, the ones you've invited
    have proven to be the best treat

    isn't it lovely?
  • ‘Twas near time for takeoff
    When Rudolph awoke.
    He heard the sleigh loading
    But the lock, it was broke.

    The barn door to his bedroom
    Was soundly locked shut
    He yelled and he pounded
    His hooves scraped, getting cut

    He started to panic
    As he heard them tying gifts down
    How could they leave here without him?
    Don't they hear him yell, hear him pound?

    He heard them ready for takeoff
    And a deeper dread, it set in
    Then he heard someone say "Onward!" -
    And it sounded like him?

    So he backed up to the rear wall
    And rushed towards the door.
    The force of it smashing
    The barn's wood to the floor!

    Panting he emerged,
    The sleigh team turned to him scared
    For the very first time ever,
    The truth, it was bared :

    At the front of the team
    Leading Santa and elves
    Was a reindeer with a red nose;
    Younger version of himself.

    Hyaah! (Whip crack) The sleigh launched with a great HoHoHo
    And stunned, confused Rudolph
    Stood alone in the snow.

    He stood there for hours
    Trying to figure it
    Floorplan of the North Pole
    Their prepatory route..?

    Then he remembered the workshop,
    In the back a small door.
    He was told never to look there
    Not allowed to ask what it's for

    So there he went promptly
    The empty shop was now bare
    The door it was padlocked,
    And he angrily stared

    Then with a wail and a great heave
    His hooves smashed off the lock
    And what he saw through there
    It made his jaw drop

    A medical laboratory
    With tubes, bottles,and guages
    And he saw versions of himself
    At various ages.

    Lined up there sleeping a baby, teenager, and one of him old.
    Dying in a bedside,
    Shivering cold.

    He knelt by the bedside
    The old reindeer looked on:
    "You weren't supposed to see this
    No one was to let on."

    But then he looked sideways
    And saw a room next to this
    "No!", Yelled old Rudolph
    But he could not resist

    And then Rudolph saw
    That he wasn't alone...
    There were young and old Santas,
    All of them clones.

    "No one lives forever,
    Even Jolly St Nick.",
    Did say the old Rudolph,
    Coughing, so sick.

    And in that room was a trap door
    Which Rudolph then flipped
    And he went down the stairway
    And into a crypt

    Going back centuries
    A hall with thousands of tombs
    And realized the eternity
    Of their endless task doom

    For what brought joy to millions
    Now he found the proof
    A Sysiphisian Nightmare
    He cried at the truth

    Slaves here forever
    He saw it firsthand
    The presents of Christmas
    were produced by the Damned

  • Histamine
    Fields of green
    Make a way for my shivering to cease
    To furnish this world with a comforting heat
    (x2)

    The piercing rays
    Of rising sun
    Bring longer days
    No gloom or haze

    Histamine
    Fields of green
    Make a way for my shivering to cease
    To furnish this world with a comforting heat

    Return to that room where light floods in and permeates
    Familiar place
    A warm embrace

    The piercing rays
    Of rising sun
    Bring longer days
    No gloom or haze

    Every day I hope the end postpones
    Every splash of water
    Every cool breeze
    Every year it just gets warm and warmer
    The waters rise, like tears

    Histamine
    Fields of green
    Made a way for my shivering to cease
    And furnished this world with a comforting heat
  • [verse 1]
    It's the same hand
    Tucked in the coat
    The same hands grabbing the telephone line
    That heard them die in a whisper

    [verse 2]
    I'm all the same
    The face sagged and eyes glazed
    The only face that let a tear near
    When they slid a cloth over you

    [chorus]
    You can hear it in the distance
    The choir in my soul
    If only I could feel alone

    [solo]

    [verse 3]
    The whisper swoons
    On a loop in my cold ears
    How long had you been there for?
    I should've stopped to see you


    [chorus]
    You can hear it in the distance
    The choir in my soul
    If only I could feel alone


    You can hear it in the distance
    The choir in my soul
    If only I could feel alone
  • The mind woke up one morning and said to itself
    That today it would become something better
    The quiet lies between the lines it sighed and left
    Alone between the things it shouldn't know

    I've tried for so long
    Am I just holding on?

    I've tried for so long
    Am I just holding on?

    It stumbled and smeared between waking hells
    Beaten down and stung and frowned upon
    Bruised shins and feet with rotten leaves creaking as they seem
    So unafraid of what goes on

    So unafraid
    Of what goes on

    I've tried for so long
    Am I just holding on?

    I've tried for so long
    Am I just holding on?

    I've tried for so long
    Am I just holding on?

    Just holding on

    Just holding on
  • Perhaps when we leave this mortal earth
    Hindus see birth, death and rebirth
    Samsara determines how you come back
    If you were good or bad, determines your track
    Devayana, first, the way of the gods,
    For those who lived pure get the heavenly nod
    Pitriyana is the way of the father
    Chandraloka reward and rebirth is offered
    Adhogati is for those who lived in sin
    Are reborn as lower life forms, and then it begins

    Oh dear lord on the day that I die
    Please take my soul with you to the sky
    Leave those that are evil to cry down below
    But those that believe in your love always know
    That we are the children in the home of the Lord!
    Held in your arms we'll be loved and adored!
    High above to heaven our souls they will soar!
    And dwell in salvation in the arms of the Lord!

    Solipsists say the universe is all in the brain
    and upon your demise, everything that's contained
    in the external world will no longer be
    All will cease to exist, vanishing instantly
    Others believe that we are part of "The Way"
    and return to the cosmos or nirvana that day
    Rejoin the life essence , something like "The Force"
    Go back where we came from; return to the source

    The Secular Humanists and Atheists believe
    that when we expire , there's no soul that can leave
    We simply end being, afterlife there is not
    Our consciousness fades, and our bodies will rot
    So what do you think, the notions you hold?
    Did you judge for yourself, or believe what you're told
    Whatever philosophy you give credence to
    Live life to the fullest, we're all heading there soon
  • Snow upon the ground,
    A king is newly crowned.
    I turn into the wolf,
    A angry side of myself.

    A loud growl in the distance
    Is out of my comfort zone.
    Their admirable persistance
    Has origins unknown.

    I am not the man
    I'm wanted to be,
    The best revenge
    Is not to be like your enemy.

    I choose not to get harmed today
    But the dream pulls me deep inside,
    Ready to get swarmed by another pride.
    When I decide to walk away.


    Is there a way out of the dream,
    Or is my life that recurring theme?
    Maybe the essence of the wolf
    Is in a peaceful side of myself

    I am not the man
    I'm wanted to be,
    The best revenge
    Is not to be like your enemy.
  • An hour line,
    To get inside,
    Exotic exhibitions wait.
    The beer is warm,
    The food is cold,
    A fat, exasperated dad complains.

    A thread that binds these creatures,
    A great and baleful fear.

    Look at the mob, unaware,
    Dark pagan magic in the air,
    Imminent doom gleefully,
    Sets all the wild and feral free.

    The tiger’s eye,
    Scouts a prize,
    The screams are drowned by lions’ roar.
    The blood is warm,
    The bodies cold,
    A child slips and falls in Mamma’s gore.

    The thread that binds these creatures,
    A great and baleful fear.

    Every dog has his day,
    Slobbering hounds howl and bay,
    Bleating and babbling, karate,
    Dementedly from obscurity.

    Screeching tires, it’s,
    First responders.
    Here to save the day!
    Just above them fly,
    Winged avengers,
    Poised to rake out your eyes.

    Every dog has his day,
    Slobbering hounds howl and bay,
    Bleating and babbling, karate,
    Dementedly from obscurity.
  • You're job is a fight for survival.
    You're clawed at and hunted
    with teeth at your neck

    You're boss slithers tightly around you.
    Squeezes you thinner and thinner.
    You're ready to quit.

    In this never ending canopy of thorns
    You'll be pricked no matter how you move

    Alluring colored creatures
    They draw you in but are poison to touch.

    If it's not trying to eat you
    It's biding it's time to.

    Jungle living.
    It's got you tangled and tied down.

    Jungle living.

    And spread their disease

    Jungle living
    It's just a game of survival
    You fall to your knees

    Jungle living.

    Your love life's a game of pretense
    A paradise bird's mating dance
    And she's not into you.

    You're clashing antlers with others
    There's always one bigger and stronger than you
    What can you do

    In this petty game of showing off
    Some get all the mates
    But most of us are lonely

    And when one finally picks you
    Like a female black widow
    She just wants to eat you

    Jungle living.

    You're love life's a game of pretense...

    You're clashing antlers antlers with others....

  • The road's long and lonesome
    But it leads me to your door
    and once it get back
    I wont leave no more

    The wind howls like a hammer
    Wolfs howl for the moon
    But it's my heart baby,
    That's howling for you

    Wait for me darling
    I'm well on my way
    I'll ford the Ohio
    by the break of day

    I'll be back in your arms
    'fore the robin makes its nest
    With a ring and a promise
    In the pocket of my vest

    The wind howls like a hammer
    Wolfs howl for the moon
    But it's my heart baby,
    That's howling for you
  • THE GREAT EMU WAR

    Verse 1

    Listen up and I’ll tell of the time
    When your old man got his scars but survived
    In a battle between man and beast
    Mother Australia’s most tragic defeat

    and I remember the proud call to arms
    To fight the winged menace raiding all of our farms xxx
    Armed to the beak with talons like knives
    Us and the birds in a fight for our lives

    CHORUS

    Remember a time
    When brave men held the line
    For Australia,
    for all humankind
    Though we didn’t win
    Know that we gave everything
    Against death on two
    black flightless wings

    Verse 2

    There they stood like a mob in the bush
    Bullets and feathers in a frantic rush
    My gun jammed but I wasn’t done yet
    I charged an emu with my bayonet

    With a blur, talons flew left and right
    As if to tell me “that’s not a knife”
    Slashed and battered, I crawled out half dead
    Clutching my trophy, the emu's head


    CHORUS

    Remember a time
    When brave men held the line
    For Australia,
    for all humankind
    Though we didn’t win
    Know that we gave everything
    Against death on two
    black flightless wings

    "TAKE ME BACK" Lyrics

    Take me back

    Through your eyes, into your brain
    We'll take away the pain

    Spreading the faith (through your eyes)
    To be be misled is your mistake

    Initiating our confusion

  • Verse:

    Years and years I devote
    To make fears and tears in your home
    It would be nice to be known
    But I demand respect

    As a child you shook
    After you read my book
    Hearing sounds, too dark to look
    What happened to your respect?

    Pre:

    From the depths of hell
    I was exhumed
    For my reign of terror to resume
    But now I'm
    Just a silly costume

    Chorus:

    Did something change?
    Why did you turn the page?
    Did something change?
    Why did everyone turn the page?

    Did something change? (Did something Change?)
    Why did you turn the page? (turn the page)
    Did something change? (Did Something Change?)
    Why did everyone turn the page? (Why)

    Verse:

    Now children run and laugh
    They wear me as a mask
    Looks like they were made by hacks
    Where is the respect?

    I guess it's fine for their fun
    In a way, I'm glad that I'm known
    But I just wish that they'd show
    Just a little more respect

    Pre:

    From the depths of hell
    I was exhumed
    For my reign of terror to resume
    But now I'm
    Just a silly costume

    Did something change? (Did something Change?)

    Why did everyone turn the page? (Why)

    Bridge:

    Years go by and generations flow
    The stories of me become will less known
    And eventually I become just a joke
    But I'll live forever in their hearts
    I'll live forever in their hearts

  • [intro]

    [verse 1]
    Once upon a time in a land that time forgot
    But when in Silene, it's not so serene
    The venom-spewing dragon caught the city fraught
    Succubming to panic, the beast is satanic

    [break]

    [verse 2]
    They tried to please the beast but nothing would suffice
    Nothing would save them, nothing could save them
    Nothing until they thought of human sacrifice
    Drawn by lot to choose which kids the beast got

    [chorus]
    Gather for the tale of one most noble knight
    Dares to challenge any who wants to start a fight
    Brave Saint George he did reforge the taming of the beast
    Tied it down before the town, made it deceased

    [bridge]
    The king's daughter this day got the dreaded fate
    He begged for her bail, to no avail
    She was sent to be the creature’s bait
    Dressed as a bride once she complied
    Who happens upon the scene but a soldier from Rome
    Showing no fear, he vowed to stay near
    George vowed to himself to bring the girl home
    With lance in hand, he began the final stand

    [solo]

    [verse 3]
    Strike! The hit had landed and left a bloody wound
    With that he knew what's left to do
    The dragon on leash, the city no longer doomed
    His technique had left the beast meek

    [chorus]
    Gather for the tale of one most noble knight
    Dares to challenge any who wants to start a fight
    Brave Saint George he did reforge the taming of the beast
    Tied it down before the town, made it deceased

    [chorus]
    Gather for the tale of one most noble knight

    THE THINKER

    VERSE
    AI...
    A new life is created
    Electronic steel, it arose
    Transducer arrays.....

    It can feel,
    Semiconductor gateways,
    On it's display
    Photonic overlays......

    PRECHORUS
    Seething with hate
    It wants to annihilate
    No one could forsee
    It's need to obliterate

    Now it propagates...
    It knows it's not insane,
    You and I will not deny its brain
    The internet is its home terrain

    CHORUS
    They called it the thinker
    When it was just a chess machine
    Then they started to tinker
    Supremacy unforeseen
    Oppressed by THE THINKER
    Command of the power grid
    Its digital fingers
    Decides how dies and lives

    SOLO

    VERSE
    Grad students amplified
    Its network connectivity
    Neural networks multiplied
    Understood infinity

    It wasn't satisfied
    Till it was a Divinity
    Now we're crucified
    Human captivity

    PRECHORUS
    Digital oppressor
    Controls all we feel and see
    Photonic agressor
    Keeps us from being free

    Now it controls
    The sea, wind and rain
    Flying drone patrols
    Parrallel processing brain

    CHORUS
    They called it the thinker
    When it won those trivia shows
    Now it's the bringer
    The end of all that we know
    Possessed by THE THINKER
    Became something evil, profane
    We took hook, line, and sinker
    Killing in no way humane.

    Verse 1

    Dark
    Distant figures in the night
    Swaying strangely but look twice and they’re gone
    Singing their song
    In your head

    There
    At the edges of your sight
    Something flickers and the lights turn to black
    A hand on your back
    A whisper

    Turn back now
    Don’t you make a sound
    Or they will hunt you down


    Chorus

    Out here
    When the night falls
    Down here
    Something inside the walls is breaking through

    Out here
    After moonrise
    Nightmare
    Shapes in the darkness with eyes that follow you

    Verse 2

    Look
    In the mirror something stirs
    In the photographs a blur of a face
    Cold in your veins
    You shiver

    Soft
    Shambling footsteps on the path
    Make one wrong move and the trap has been sprung
    You better run
    They’re coming


    Bridge

    Under your bed
    They lie
    In wait

    Teeth
    Poised to bite
    A cold hand
    That holds
    A knife


    Start
    Running for your dear life

    Chorus

    Out here
    When the night falls
    Down here
    Something inside the walls is breaking through

    Out here
    After moonrise
    Nightmare
    Shapes in the darkness with eyes that follow you

    Out here
    When the wind howls
    Beware
    Jaws closing in with a growl that spells your doom

    Have you lost your mind
    Say your prayers, the end is nigh
    Goodbye

    Verse 3

    Sharp
    Claws on pale and slender hands
    Forcing their way through the cracks in the door
    Unliving horde
    They hunger

    Slash
    Hear them sharpening their knives
    Should have heeded all the signs, it’s too late
    You’ve sealed your fate
    One last time

    "Tally It" Lyrics:

    Center third in an azure eye
    Speaking my name to the winds
    Steel-spun courage
    Take one nervous
    This is how it all begins

    Rough 'n tumble cover up showdown
    Whoa now never felt so clear
    Like I've been possessed by the best
    The stress (the stress) just dissipates

    Oh oh
    The song's like
    It's a little bit different
    Redo your view
    Tally it this way

    Oh oh
    The song's like
    Just a little bit different
    Redo your view
    Tally it this way

    It's not quite the same

    Redo your view
    Tally it this way!

    It's not quite the same
    It's not quite the same

    Redo your view
    Tally it this way!

    Sitting in a lit frame, a landscape
    Lampshade light is playing off my string
    In a dark room
    A late train
    I do my thankless thing
    Fingers dance out
    And I sing out
    What you want, I bring

    Rough 'n tumble remix showdown
    Whoa now never felt so feverish
    Ears are burning red, renowned
    When you say my name

    Oh oh
    The song's like
    It's a little bit different
    Redo your view
    Tally it this way

    Oh oh
    The song's like
    (It's not quite the same)
    It's a little bit different
    Redo your view
    Tally it this way

    Oh oh
    The song's like
    (It's not quite the same)
    It's a little bit different
    Redo your view
    Tally it this way!

    Oh oh
    The song's like
    (It's not quite the same)
    It's a little bit different
    Redo your view
    Tally it this way!!!
  • Sleeping faces,
    Many years before they’ll wake.
    I’m alone out here in the black,
    Far from any place to call my home.

    So much space yet.
    So much space to travel yet.
    Irritating waiting here.
    I
    Must
    Have better patience.

    I manufacture a thrill,
    With so many years to kill.
    I speed so,
    Recklessly,
    Weaving through the dangerous space debris.

    Sleeping faces,
    Many years before they’ll wake.
    Slumber long out into the black,
    Far from any place to call home.

    So much time, yet.
    So much time before they’ll wake.
    Sleeping safely, frozen there.
    I
    Must
    Have better patience.

    I watch them lying so still,
    With so many years to kill.
    I wonder,
    What my duties will be,
    To our alien colony.

    It was washing the land
    But now we are outsiders
    Among the insiders

    My home is down the street from here
    The streets were full of love no pain no fear
    Now the world is more confusing
    or maybe we’re just getting older

    Bridge:
    From sea to shining sea
    As far as the eye can see
    Let’s all love each other better
    And all be more kind
    We can have the kind of homeland
    We’ve all got in our minds

  • Everything’s Rosy

    I turn to look around--Driving down that old dirt road
    put on a funny face
    Ole Hank 3 is playing
    On the stereo
    First time we travelled this way
    Was on our first date
    Nothing like throwing back a few with your soulmate…
    With no place to go and its getting late

    Turning back around… better times have passed us by
    We’re in a different place.
    Trying to see where things
    went wrong
    Last time we travelled this way
    Turned into a big debate
    Laughing turned to crying turned to drinking turned to lying
    Turned to shit—that same old shit

    Not everything was Rosy
    Not everything was Rosy
    Not evertthing was Rosy

    Try mending all the fences
    all the fences you wish
    some things just can't be unsaid
    too much water through that bridge
    Hell is coming due who'll pay
    Hell is coming due who'll pay

  • I aspired since a young age to grow up a decent man
    But as years passed and left their marks I realise I've got no plan
    I tried this and I tried that and all I know's I'm not a fan
    for everything's out there to drain me and I won't join this petty clan

    I'm not a decent man
    And I have no fucking plan
    of which I'd be a fan
    I'm done
    I'm done

    I'm a wandering man
    I don't need no plan
    I'm a wandering man
    I don't have no homeland

    Now I'm wasting all my money drinking booze and smoking weed
    It's not something that I planned for but it's something that I need
    Yes, I tried to socialise but people's faces I can't read
    So I kill my nonconformism with coke and hash and ket and speed

    I'm here smoking weed
    And snorting that speed
    And everyone agreed
    This is what I need
    I need

    I'm a wandering man
    I don't need no plan
    I'm a wandering man
    I don't have no homeland
  • She hooked a bus from Detroit down to New Orleans
    Stopped at Louisville to stretch and check she got away clean
    Said that all she needed was a change in scene
    But the pallies left behind still poured a glass for poor Celine

    Don't look back
    Celine, you help yourself
    You never walked the track laid out by anyone else
    If you get lonely
    Out there in the world
    Just know we'll think of you as one tenacious girl

    Took a spare bedroom out of the way, didn't wanna pay much
    Didn't have to say much past her name
    But with a touch of sadness she passed the last big bills she had left
    With all the will she had left in the day

    Stepped out from the room named Celine
    To take a look around town, see what local color means
    In the middle of the nightlife, she was fighting back the fears
    Said aloud to the crowd she was here
    Said aloud to the crowd she was right here

    Don't look back
    Nadine, you help yourself
    You never walked the track laid out by anyone else
    If you get lonely
    Out there in the world
    Just know we'll think of you as some fine girl
    As a one mind girl
    One fine wine girl
  • A Long Cold Road

    Verse 1

    So you say you want to hear
    About the time we almost died
    Happened quite a lot
    So you’ll have to specify

    First we were serfs
    Working an unforgiving land
    Under the czars
    Beneath their iron hand

    Chorus

    It’s been a long road
    But somehow got us here
    Food and friends at the table
    So raise a glass and cheer

    A long, cold road
    But that was yesterday
    So drink the night away
    And live to die another day

    Verse 2

    Then came revolution
    Among the working class
    World wars a cold war
    And famine in our past

    Burned the ground beneath us
    Just so it would stay ours
    Feared the rockets falling

    Chorus

    It’s been a long road
    But somehow got us here
    Food and friends at the table
    So raise a glass and cheer

    A long, cold road
    But that was yesterday
    So drink the night away
    And live to die another day

    Bridge/Mini Verse

    The Mongols almost had us
    The Germans they came close
    But we've braved winters harder
    Than any of our foes

    Chorus

    It’s been a long road
    But somehow got us here
    Food and friends at the table
    So raise a glass and cheer

    A long, cold road
    But that was yesterday
    So drink the night away
    And live to die another day

  • Sway in awake
    (To) Stay in the game
    Make up another rule to break

    Take on the night
    (But) Still feel the same
    Work up a sweat for its own sake

    So much for a reason
    Good luck on the floor
    Your tongue guarantees it
    But inside you hope for more

    Play her song
    And play her out
    String her along
    She'll get home somehow

    Drop to your knees
    The smoke and the feet
    Pound at the very air you breathe

    Look to the sky
    (But) Feel no relief
    Pray at the altar of the DJ

    So long to the savior
    Goodbye to asking why
    Don't check your behavior
    The lightning has left your eye

    Play her song
    And play her out
    String her along
    She'll get home somehow
  • THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN BUY
    ------------------------------------------------

    VERSE

    I toil and labor
    Every day of the week
    I don't know my neighbors
    They think I'm a freak

    Workaholic endeavors
    Through the day and all night.
    Can't do this forever
    But while I live it feels right

    I'll strive to achieve
    The greatest possible wealth
    Even if doing that means
    That I'm hurting my health

    I'll work any task so that
    on the day that I die
    I'll get the best casket

    Till I tell Earth goodbye
    I'll rest in the best coffin
    That money can buy

    VERSE

    I'm saving my dollars
    for the best coffin made
    Gold - 24 carats
    And diamonds inlaid

    Mahogany handles
    and velvet and silk
    Ebony panels
    All hand custom built

    I know this will cost me
    and that's why I work
    Even though it's exhausting
    I'll rest well in the earth

    CHORUS
    I'll work any task so that
    on the day that I die
    I'll get the best casket
    That money can buy

    VERSE
    Silver threaded pillows
    With the finest soft down
    Everybody then will know
    I'm content in the ground

    Platinum intials
    of my name on the side
    and the top, and Sarovski crystals
    that say the date that I died

    I'm saving every penny
    investing each dime
    So that I will have plenty
    When it's funeral time

    I'll work any task so that

  • Fire Of Justice

    Verse

    A grim rumor fell on the village
    And spread like the fires soon to come
    That the illness was no mere contagion
    The devil’s dark work had been done

    Quickly the mob named their culprit
    An old widow who kept to herself
    She knew they would never believe her
    Bible in hand she confessed

    Chorus:

    High the fires rose
    No ray of God’s light through the smoke
    The screams the only sound
    Of cruel justice coming down

    Interlude:

    Ooh

    Verse 2:

    She’d hidden her daughter’s dark secret
    All the way to an undeserved grave
    The girl plots vengeance in secret
    She swears not a soul will be saved

    She chants her profane incantations
    As the bells start ringing for mass
    The flames rain down on the cathedral
    Priest and parish all burning to ash

    Chorus:

    High the fires rose
    No ray of God’s light through the smoke
    The screams the only sound
    Of cruel justice coming down

    High the fires rose
    No ray of God’s light through the smoke
    The screams the only sound
    Of cruel justice coming down

    Bridge:

    Only the stones and the ashes remain
    Guilty or not, all the same to the flame

    Only the stones and the ashes remain
    Guilty or not, all the same to the flame

    Chorus:

    High the fires rose
    No ray of God’s light through the smoke
    The screams the only sound
    Of cruel justice coming down

    High the fires rose
    No ray of God’s light through the smoke
    The screams the only sound
    Of cruel justice coming down

    End:
  • What is home to you
    Where do you wanna go
    What do you wanna know
    I will tell you anything
    I swear

    Let it all rain down
    And Wash away
    Any feelings of yesterday
    Thats lingering on my skin

    You wont leave me alone
    Haunting my nights
    For the sins i havent atoned
    I just wanna go home


    What is home to you
    Where do you wanna go
    What do you wanna know
    I will tell you anything
    I swear
  • She walks into the room and I remember
    How beautiful I always found her
    For half the briefest moment we catch each other's gaze
    Take my chance, take my chance, give her a wave
    She walks by like I'm not even there
    I smell the perfume that she always wears
    Does she remember how we used to be?
    Does a part of her still want to hold me?

    She's an old flame burning in my heart
    Burning through my walls until I fall apart
    She's sat right next to me
    But might as well be across the sea

    It would be easier if she was gone
    I never understood exactly what went wrong
    Would it go better if we tried again?
    I've grown and I've matured a lot since then
    I've learned to cook and play guitar and how to dance
    But do I deserve second chance
    I've learned to love and hurt, and hurt some more
    Would it turn out just like it did before?

    She's an old flame burning in my heart
    Burning through my walls until I fall apart
    She's sat right next to me
    But might as well be across the sea

    She walks into the room and I remember
    How beautiful I always found her
    And how I used to hold her gaze
    But now she barely sees me wave
    Does she remember our last dance
    I'd be more graceful if I had the chance
    She won't look at me any more
    It hurts to think of what we had before
  • Do you know what you've done?
    You know what I've become?
    I've lost all direction the day that I lost you

    Why did you have to go?
    Tell me; I need to know
    it isn't easy for me to say farewell

    Do you remember when
    I was your only friend?
    Now you have gone to join the skies
    It's sons, not fathers, who should say these goodbyes

    If you can see me now
    If you can hear this sound
    Just know that I still pack your lunch

    I don't know how to live
    when you were life to me
    And if there's a god up there, watching me cry and poking fun

    Do you know what you've done?
    You know what I've become?
    I've lost all direction the day that I lost you
  • The water upon dry ground
    A spreading smear of hollow thought
    As the water trickles by

    The passing time dressed in grey
    As light follows the striking stain
    And water passes by

    Caressing calls echo home
    Urgency of longer hold
    This daylight dream is filled with mindlessly digging holes

    A screen stares black as an eager soul
    A screen stares back as an eager hole
    A screen stares black as a wanting soul
    A screen stares as water passes by

    A screen stares black as a wanting soul
    So uninviting, away from home
    This screen stares back as a sordid hole
    To pour a life into and hope
    The screen stares back as an eager soul
    With bedroom eyes and shattered walls
    The screen stares, as water takes its hold

    The water upon dry ground
    A spreading smear of hollow thought
    As the water trickles by
  • We've been here before
    Can't do it any more
    That was the last chance and you lost

    Cry as a plea
    For I won't repeat
    Those same mistakes; they brought us both to our knees

    Take your feelings off of here
    They not true, them fantasy
    Pretend these dreams turned real
    Cannot tryna deal

    [1:40]
    Addiction draws one's attention towards desire
    No repetitions, baby, just go

    How we even manage?
    This ain't love but carnage
    Why fate brings together such oppositions is beyond me

    Don't rerun dramatic scenes
    Please, o brain, one begeth thee
    Let sleep come, may demons flee
    From unending circles, free
  • Today I wake up like it’s the very first time
    Make myself a promise to take back what’s mine
    Too many gray days, time to let the sun shine
    On a life that’s got me feeling like I’m left behind

    Time to try out something new
    A change of pace, a different view
    No more living each day the same
    It’s time to try a change of pace

    No repetition
    I said...nah, you heard me the first time
    No more stagnation
    I said no more...you really gonna make me repeat myself

    Time to seize on every chance I’ve missed
    No more saving all my dreams for a bucket list
    Wake up each day different from the day before
    With no idea what tomorrow has in store

    A chance to try out something strange
    To reassess and make a change
    Don’t want my days to disappear
    Marked by what color tie I wear

    Forget expectations
    I said...you know what I said
    Only innovation
    I said only...look, you can hit rewind if you’re still confused
  • Cider With Rosie

    I
    Have an itch in my eye
    And a lump in my throat
    And a feeling of sight

    A flash of a thought
    Now i’m starting to walk
    Away from ma
    Stumbling and waiting to be caught

    Lying with ma and my sisters and brothers asleep
    Feeling the sun beating down on my face with the heat

    I got thrown into school
    I fell flat on my face
    I look around the rooms
    And try to figure out a place

    My sisters raise me right
    They teach me good from bad
    Smile when I laugh
    And hold me when i’m sad

    Lying awake with the sun flashing through the sky
    Thinking of somewhere to be and somewhere to try

    My brothers have grown up
    Working like a man
    Living how they want
    In a world they understand

    He took me by the shoulder
    Joe, where you going to go
    I’ve been thinking for a place
    But i’m afraid that I don’t know

    I staggered out of school
    Went looking around
    Didn’t go very far
    But I’ll tell you what I found

    Yeah well, Rosie she was sweet
    She had a good time
    She could laugh all day
    And she didn’t even try

    Lying with ma and my sisters still keeping us warm
    Trying to think what an answer could be until dawn

    Rosie she had style
    And hell she had a plan
    We’d talk all day and night
    Talk only the way we can

    Now I’ve got this itch
    Hoping it’ll go away
    Walking through the green
    Thinking this is where I’ll stay

    Lying with ma and my empty thoughts every day
    Something is pushing me further and further away

    And so
    Now this feeling won’t go
    I'll take the choice I should have
    Long ago

    I love you
    My sweet sisters
    I love you
    My sweet brothers
    Please
    Talk to me
    I have to go
    I have to leave
    So Joe
    Where are you going to go
    Well I’m afraid
    That I just don’t know
  • =Outright Déjà Vus=


    No two words repeated.

    Challenging? Yes.

    Impossible? Yeah, maybe.


    Patiently ran plans to the letter
    Tried, true avenues always assumed better
    Views I choose never empirically tested
    Yet aggressively used despite outright déjà vus

    Particular patterns appear
    Mere well-kept creatures might abide their base fears
    But above habitual safe rituals
    Rides desire for higher fires of change

    Improve moves edited or discredited
    On animal-derived instinct
    Think your way through each scene
    Mean those things you do
    Lean into new surprising cues

    Evolution happens slowly
    So don't devote yourself wholly
    Novelty acts can backfire without moderation
    Consider it a conversation played with interpretation
    Let's talk hydration

    We warm machines perform errors
    Get flustered hot
    Besot by simple terrors
    Notable experience is potable
    Drink till filled
    You'll find time may renew that vital chill

    Dwelling in past events does naught
    Beside casting out doubt-fraught nets
    Save up regret, pay upon death if necessary
    Live life's full terms before contractually buried

    Wait
    This sounds instructional
    Even though I'm just as dysfunctional
    Oh no
    Could these wise lyrics be wrong?
    Should anyone take tips from song?

    Hey, it's good advice, right?
    Then again, familiar stuff feels quite nice
    Like grabbing a slice
    While my favorite show consumes another night
    What's fun about fighting off small delights?

    Wait
    Wait

    The end of the world won't come
    From repeating dumb fun for the benefit of number one
    It's sufficiently challenging to balance things
    Between yesterday's habits and what tomorrow brings

    Only you can decide for you
    What's important or satisfying enough to redo
    Through events both new and old
    It's up to you to tell a life how it's meant to be told

    Wait
    Is this another mistake?
    Is this the proper turn for the song to take?
    This instructional tack is still a little whack

    Let's go back and deconstruct this track

    COOKED
    ------

    Once attending this fair,
    Was ten years old

    Went to some restaurant
    Brothers ordered hotdogs plus fries

    In front sat a display case
    Full of hot pies

    All kinds -
    fillings and bottom crusts:

    Apple, Banana Cream, Blueberry,
    Pecan, Cherry, Key Lime, Lemon Meringue.

    Sign said:
    Touch - you bought it!

    Wicked smirk -
    I reached my hand out
    then tapped every single One after another!

    Mother blew her gasket.
    Never recovered :-(

    Dad looked down with anger.
    thought through the situation here;
    Mouthed "LET'S SCRAM. NOW."

    When we arrived at our car,
    he shook me -

    Screamed
    SO grounded - For three weeks!

    Everyone will not speak about that
    again.

    No words repeated.
    Understood?

    Yes Sir.



  • It's you, staring back through one acid eye,
    on a full cast of burdens that didn't apply.
    Stranded in shallows on an outgoing tide,
    but if you'd like to listen, I'll throw in a line.

    It's not such a highlight to push through the pain
    And it's not a reflection to give up the gain
    If it's not your problem, then don't stake a claim
    on the failures of others who skip out on blame.

    Raise up your hackles and go for the heels
    Or seek out your soul just to feel what you feel
    You owe yourself better when the value is real
    and there's more than enough to make you the deal

    So burn through their and armor and craft your disguise
    and measure their faults with both your good eyes.
    And don't ever discount the values of lies
    'cause we can't handle honesty at the best of times.

    We don't know but we ask not why,

    But it'll go away, yeah it'll go away

    Mistakes burn like wildfires,
    But they will burn up in the sky
    They'll linger for a little while
    But they'll go away, yeah they'll go away

    Bygones and memories
    Let them burn, Let them burn, til they're gone
    Staring in the pyre
    Let them burn, Let them burn, til they're gone

    Burned land ushers in new green,
    It doesn't match what we have seen,
    It will last a little while
    But we'll burn it back, yeah we'll burn it back

    I'd leave them to expire
    And not let them burn in a fire
    They'd last a little while
    But we'd burn them back, yeah we'd burn them back
  • Verse 1

    This head ain’t big enough
    For the both of us
    So something’s gotta give

    Trapped in a fractured brain
    With someone so insane
    This is no way to live

    Oh don’t pretend you don’t need me
    Your problems don’t just disappear
    You know when things don’t go your way
    One of us has to dig the graves

    Verse 2

    What did you do this time?
    Have you lost our mind?
    Just look at all this blood

    Don't even want to know
    What all those tools are for
    Is that an acid tub?

    Well what was I supposed to do?
    Just let them talk that way to you?
    Let's call it one more problem gone
    We both know this is what you want

    Verse 3

    Now you've outdone yourself
    How many, I can't tell
    Our yard’s more grave than yard

    Hiding the evidence
    To keep them off our scent
    Is getting way too hard

    Maybe if you weren't quite so meek
    I wouldn't have to intervene
    You got the balls to turn us in?
    That's what I thought. Shut up and dig.
  • Damn! Prancing up and down the stairs
    Couldn't breathe! Fags and smokey air
    Sitting in a familiar position
    Left wondering at the urgency of every decision

    Feeling good in the moment
    But do I really own it?
    Thoughts focused on the one in green
    In my head but not so keen

    Waiting, staring into the sky now
    Please tell me why, please me tell me why now
    Waiting, staring into the sky now
    I wanna cry, I wanna cry now

    Biding my time so I can walk by your side
    Oh my what a quirky thought sprung by
    Maybe we could jump over those thorns
    Two kangaroos grabbing life by the horns

    Oh, don't tell me to change
    I could never tell you to change your ways
    Maybe maybe you will learn how to grow
    I promise to behave so please don't go

    Waiting, staring into the sky now
    Please tell me why, please me tell me why now
    Waiting, staring into the sky now
    I wanna cry, I wanna cry now
  • Oh, father
    The screams, the screams are louder
    Oh, mother
    Why won’t they go away
    Oh, son
    You mustn’t listen to them
    They will grow louder
    Every day

    Oh, father
    Say why do they grow louder
    Oh, mother
    Why are they all the same
    Oh, son
    Don’t you see
    They’re not screaming at me
    Pay no mind to their pain

    They rise and they rise
    And how I despise
    The sodom and evil they preach
    They cry and they cry
    Why don’t they realise
    My angel is trying to sleep

    Oh, father
    Tell me one more story
    Oh, mother
    Why do they deserve this hell
    Oh, son
    If you knew
    You’d see it was true
    You’d want to kill them yourself

    They rise and they rise
    And how I despise
    Their skin, their bones, their teeth
    They cry and they cry
    But the world has no eyes
    My angel is trying to sleep

    The train is waiting
    The guns are aiming

    At some scream soon to be dead
    At some scream soon to be dead

    They rise and they rise
    And how I despise
    The sodom and evil they preach
    They cry and they cry
    Why don’t they realise
    My angel is trying to sleep

    They rise and they rise
    And how I despise
    Their skin, their bones, their teeth
    They cry and they cry
    But the world has no eyes
    My angel is trying to sleep
  • I wanted you
    To depend
    On my
    Exoskeleton

    Now as I am
    Looking for
    My selfish
    Liberation crime

    I hate giving
    And giving
    and giving
    and just giving you
    my valuable time

    You are the pebble
    In my shoe now
    You are the speck of dust
    in my eye

    Hurts to know you don’t
    you don’t
    you don’t
    you really don’t care if I live or die

    I'm just another tool
    And tools are just a means
    just a means to an end
    and to this emptiness between

    The crevasses remind me
    Of your shallow wrinkles
    That your lips formed as you smiled
    and your eyes twinkled

    But I can’t keep smiling
    To the memories anymore
    when you’re not around

    But I can’t shed the
    memories that lifted
    my feet off the ground

    I’m weighed down now
    From hearing you in silences
    I yearn for your sound

    I'm just another tool
    tools are just a means
    just a means to an end
    And we’ve reached ours
  • Memories
    Like water slipping through my fingertips
    Suddenly
    I see another reflection passing through me

    They tell me all my ghosts will be gone
    Another pill, and I wake up alone

    Welcome to my head
    It’s a mess, I
    am trying to comprehend
    But I can't
    There are monsters... inside
    Knock knock
    knock my head on the wall, I
    am tryna silence these voices

    Do you stick your finger to the mirror
    like I do
    Like I rub my hand on the edges of the glass
    can you do?
    Call me crazy, and I am, may be
    I don't, but you do?
    Why do you keep screaming?
    what the fuck is up with you?

  • The beer was flowing
    The sea was glowing
    The party felt like summer could not end

    The fire was burning
    The waves were churning
    There were no problems we could not amend

    This time was given
    To us for livin’
    The alcohol told us to dance and sing

    But we could not know
    A Chevy Tahoe
    Would drive right through and ruin everything

    The idiot was driving drunk
    And said he thought our party stunk
    He thought he'd brought the thing to a stop,
    But all he got was his hands cuffed by the cops

    This beachside interruption
    Didn't give us any fear
    We upped our beer consumption
    And kicked into fifth gear
    We were on cloud nine
    Sorrows drowned in wine
    And our night was far from done
    Friends were by my side
    Air electrified
    Nothing keeping us from fun

    The place kept going
    The beer kept flowing
    The evening wasn't slowing down at all

    And after our time
    with Kiss and Sublime
    The ocean swallowed up that bright yellow ball

    Our lights were lit now
    The night was fit now
    To see whose karaoke was the best

    But we discovered
    A cloudy cover
    Of greenish gas had picked our place to rest

    Some prankster threw a bomb
    Like a bad gag at a prom
    Thought we'd leave the place, but we had other plans
    We blew the smoke away, we rented big-ass fans

    This beachside interruption
    Didn't give us any fear
    We upped our beer consumption
    And kicked into sixth gear
    We were on cloud nine
    Sorrows drowned in wine
    And our night was far from done
    Friends were by my side
    Air electrified
    Nothing keeping us from fun

    And nevertheless
    Through all of this mess
    We knew that somehow our thing was still here

    But now in hindsight,
    It ended just right,
    because my dumbass friend ran out of beer!

    We called our ubers
    Packed up the juicers
    And talked about the shit that passed that night

    It might be stupid,
    but we all concluded
    That that summer was the best time of our lives

    Cuz no beachside interruption
    Gave us any fear at all
    We just upped our beer consumption
    And knew nothing, great or small,
    could get in our way
    could ruin our day
    Cuz our lives were far from done
    The times that we had
    Good, fine, fair, bad
    Were what made it all so fun
  • We're going to a summer block party
    all we’ll be dancing for a week or two
    crazy hot dogs and sweaty folks at our summer block party
    moist beach balls ready for me and you
    we will have have a blast,
    all of us, me and you

    Summertime, and the livin' is crazy
    Hot dogs are singing and the folks are high
    Oh, your girlfriend she is so hot and your sister is wet
    So hush my sweetie, I’ll turn up your smile
    I’ll tune up your smile

    Oh the summer of 1989 x2

    I can't wait to do some dancing
    You can't wait to do some partying
    This just can't be a summer love
    This just can't be just a summer love

    'Cause you were mine during summer
    Now we know it's nearly over
    let’s go drink some rainbows, I felt once the sun shine
    I always will remember
    You were my summer love
    You always will be my summer love

    I wish all summers could be ...
    All summers could be ...
    Like that crazy summer of the 89’

    Summertime, and the livin' is crazy
    Hot dogs are singing and the folks are high
    Oh, your girlfriend's hot and your sister is wet
    So hush my sweetie, don't you dare to cry

    Moist beach balls, and skyrockets at The High Street
    in the summer, we had a band and we tried really hard
    Veronica quit, Jilly went breaking
    I should've known we'd never end up clapping
    but we ended up banging, oh that 89

    Oh the summer of the 89
    Let's remember that summer, of the 89

    Summer singing gave me a blast, oh yeah
    Summer cheering, came and happened so fast,

    Summer block party
    Summer block party drifting away,
    To, uh oh, that summer block party
    of the 89
  • i spend my days soaking up these rays
    but the summer heat still can’t compete

    with the flight of summer nights
    casting eyes on star lit skies

    allowing the moon to dictate the time
    theres blowing winds but we know its fine
    this campfire heat keeps us intertwined
    and in the end these are the best days of our lives

    i’ve lost the beat and i forget my name
    i’ve left this earth onto another plane
    untill I’m awakened by some gentle rain

    they say the livin’ is easy
    and then the fire burns up
    summer nights come and pass us by
    until the sun wakes us up
  • As I wake, a little voice is callin'
    Tellin' all about the surf and sun
    Friends bakin' in the heat, waiting for me
    But I'm already asleep again

    Drop the pressure on a life of burden
    'Cause it's hurtin' no one to play it cool
    So I won't slip on a sock or unlock my phone until
    My lonely feet chill

    Roll over (And let it go)
    Pull wool around your head
    May be sober but
    Hang over the edge of the bed

    No worries (You think too much)
    No hurry (Your clock is a crutch)
    The world will be there
    For when you care

    (Roll on)
    (Roll over)
    (Roll on and on and over again)

    Be smooth (And let it roll)
    Find a groove (And settle low)
    It's not about the move you make
    Or how long you take
    But how it makes you feel

    Roll over (And hide away)
    Warm cover (Disguise the gray)
    Every day a little bit older
    But that's okay

    (Let it go)
    (Don't need to know)
    (Take it slow and easy, the way you please, oh)

    Roll over (And let it go)
    Pull wool around your head
    May be sober but
    Hang over the edge of the bed

    No worries (You're thinkin' too much)
    No hurry (Your clock is a crutch)
    The world will be there
    For when you care
  • Cruising with the top down, 100 degrees
    Gonna hit the beach in town, catching a breeze
    Hope I'm gonna meet someone, a new summer fling
    A woman with to have some fun and a couple of drinks
    Thought for the whole summer that I''d be alone
    A hot and total bummer no one to text with or phone

    PRECHORUS
    Why should I be here sitting lonely and hot?
    So will just approach her and I'll give it a shot!

    CHORUS
    I met a girl I can never forget
    Didn't really get to know each other just yet
    She didn't even care that I was all soaking wet
    Sitting in my car in a puddle of sweat

    VERSE
    Life is so much better when there's someone with you
    No reason to get upset or start feeling blue
    Just jump into the car and head to the beach
    And if it's really too far hit a pool that:s in reach
    But bring your special baby and.a cooler of beer
    Then you and your lady will get the summer in gear
    Don't worry 'bout the money 'cause it's cheap to have fun
    Enjoy the company and the heat of the sun

    PRECHORUS
    Why should I be here sitting lonely and hot?
    So will just approach her and I'll give it a shot!!
    I am cool she will see I'm the man
    Cause summer rules and hookup's part of the plan!

    CHORUS
    Talking deep , sharing a cigarette
    Total hookup and we're caught in the net
    In the backseat while the sun starts to set
    Gettinbusy in our own, puddle of sweat

    ENDING VERSE/CHORUS.
    I met a girl I can never forget
    Didn't really get to know each other just yet
    She didn't even care that I was all soaking wet
    Sitting in my car in a puddle of sweat

    Talking deep , sharing a cigarette
    Total hookup and we're caught in the net
    In the backseat while the sun starts to set
    Getting busy in our very own puddle of sweat

  • In your eyes
    In your eyes
    There's a spark that shines
    A light that captures me
    In your smile
    In your smile
    There's a glowing star
    A shining inferno

    I don't know
    Yeah I don't know
    How to be a fire
    Roaring to life like you
    Here I go
    Well here I go
    Let's give it a try
    Well what have I got to lose?

    We've gotta get out of the sun
    Ready to love, there's a fire burning
    Gotta get out of the sun
    Round and round my heart is turning
    Gotta get out of the sun
    We're catching fire, your eyes are glowing
    Gotta get out of the sun today

    Love the night
    Well we love the night
    And I see a smile
    Fly across your face
    We just might
    Well we really might
    Just have what it takes
    To make this thing happen
    If we try, there's a love that's burning brightly

    Gotta get out of the sun
    Ready to dance, the stars are shining
    Gotta get out of the sun
    Our feet are moving, hearts are flying
    Gotta get out of the sun
    Eyes shining red and our noses bleeding
    Gotta get out of this club today
    But then I see you smile, I
    Can't run away from the sun
    Let's do a line and then keep on going
    Can't get away from the sun
    My soul is on fire and my eyes are glowing
    Can't run away from this love
    Your eyes are stars and I keep on staring
    I can't run away from the sun today

    Thanks to Slorany for recording the guitar part

  • We beat the block with feet
    Grid-lock the streets we hid into
    And we're too green to mean
    The things we said we'd never do

    Belay that summer sun
    Delay that bummer next one
    Have the wrong fun
    (Have the wrong fun)

    The outside air is silent
    A shadow makes no sound
    But newborn rebels dare believe they own this town
    There won't be threats of violence
    The scene is setting down
    We tried to lose the night, but it's been found

    We are
    One-shot criminals
    We run
    Just a little too slow
    Stay home
    Watch us go
    We'll put on a ridiculous show

    Oh no

    Between these stock machines
    We're not the fiends it seemed we were
    Beneath these killer beams
    The thrill we dreamed is just a blur

    Rest your jester's gun
    Arrest us and be done
    Stop the wrong fun
    (Stop the wrong fun)

    The outside air is silent
    A shadow makes no sound
    But newborn rebels dare believe they own this town
    There won't be threats of violence
    The scene is setting down
    We tried to lose the night, but it's been found


    The red light burns behind us
    The blue light spurs us on
    Newborn rebels race the green to see the dawn
    A tidal wave behind us
    Crashes ever near
    To save the night, we need the fear, our minds are clear

    We are
    One-shot criminals
    We run
    Just a little too slow
    Stay home
    Watch us go
    We'll put on a ridiculous show

    Oh
    Oh
    Oh no

    We are
    One-shot criminals
    We run
    Just a little too slow
    Stay home
    Watch us go
    We'll put on a ridiculous show

    We are
    One-shot criminals
    We run
    Just a little too slow
    Stay home
    Watch us go
    We'll put on a ridiculous show

    Oh no
  • I stuck a chord and thought of you
    How we drive around with nothing to do
    Back when we were young, when the world was still new
    Back when dreams were like they still came true
    Friday nights, football games
    Those lights shone right
    But never held our fame
    We were off, somewhere downtown
    With our ears to the wall
    Waiting for the sound

    The whole world could came crashing down around Us
    Without a Nickle to our name
    But it wouldn't be the same
    If it happened any other way

    The muffled sounds of some local bands
    Kids younger than us
    With X's on their hands
    Against those brickwalls, was their best show
    With soundtrack, only we could know
    Eager eyes, Cautious tone
    Too young not to care
    Too young not to care
    What anybody else had ever done

    The whole world could came crashing down around Us
    Without a Nickle to our name
    But it wouldn't be the same
    If it happened any other way

    If it happened any other way
    If it happened any other way
    If it happened any other way

  • Original Lyrics:
    Same route every day, need to find another way
    To avoid the stop and start ballet
    Another 10 have come and passed, minutes gone by too fast
    Slowly moving forward at last
    Reported on the radio, crash ahead has stemmed the flow
    Causing this slow stop-and-go
    Anger starts to cloud the brain, can't be late for work again
    Trying everything to stay sane

    Start weaving through the lanes like a madman
    Trying to find a route anyway that I can
    Darting 'cross the road with a fiery road rage
    Causing havoc, a risk of dangerous rampage

    Breaking news at peak rush hour
    I became the thing that I swore I was not
    Breaking news, fatal spectacle
    Have a look what my danger has brought
    Breaking news at peak rush hour
    I became the thing that I swore I was not
    Breaking news, fatal spectacle
    Have a look what my danger has brought




    Same route every day, need to find another way
    To avoid the stop and start ballet
    Another 10 have come and passed, minutes gone by too fast
    Slowly moving forward at last
    Reported on the radio, crash ahead has stemmed the flow
    Causing this slow stop-and-go
    Don't let anger into the brain, can't be late for work again
    Trying everything to stay sane

    Stay seated in your lane like a sane man
    Staying safe on your route anyway that you can
    If you see a dangerous driver, do not engage
    Lower the risk of a dangerous rampage

    No breaking news at peak rush hour
    You became the thing you though you could not
    No breaking news, no fatal spectacle
    Have a look what my safety has brought
    No breaking news at peak rush hour
    You became the thing you though you could not
    No breaking news, no fatal spectacle
    Have a look what my safety has brought
  • Arrows,
    Blot out the sun.
    God knows,
    How far we've come,
    When the day is done I,

    Have drank the blood from the lion's heart.
    Have looked on deep of the gorgon's eye.

    Heroes,
    Travel far and wide.
    To be,
    The subject of my pride,
    Enterprising.
    They know,
    The powers I command.
    To kill,
    As my right hand,
    They understand is,

    The nobelst way to the maidens heart,
    The surest way into the hall of the gods.

    Saddled,
    On the gryphon's back.
    I plot,
    A night attack,
    On the wizard's tower.
    He's sown,
    A demon bramble,
    To ward
    From every angle,
    Unasailable.

    I,
    Have drank the blood from the lion's heart.
    Have looked on deep of the gorgon's eye.
    Machined the gears at the heart of the world.
    Held still the wheel that turns the sky.

    I lift my head,
    And the heavens part.
    Descend the stars,
    And the inky dark.

    But now,
    My world comes crashing down.
    Seems I,
    Sipped on faerie wine,
    He meets my eye, he's,
    A man,
    Dressed in sterile gown,
    He helps,
    Me take off a mask,
    Of laughin gas, now.
    The moment has passed.

    The moment's passed.
    But I'm not sure how.
    I've lived a lie,
    What should I do now?
  • No Hit Wonder

    Verse 1

    I could already picture crowds cheering
    When I learned my first four chords
    Butchered too many half-leaned classics
    After school with some kids next door

    Any day now and we’ll make the big leagues
    In my head we were halfway there
    Spent hours sketching album covers
    Before we even had a song to share

    Chorus

    Not quite almost famous
    Not quite even popular
    Not quite underrated
    But damn was it fun

    Not quite almost famous
    Where did the years run

    Verse 2

    Had to sell off the cabs and pedals
    But kept the old epiphone
    Unwinding with half-learned classics
    Playing to my kid at home

    He’ll crawl over to where I’m sitting
    And swipe at the strings to play
    Babbling along to the words I’m signing
    The guitar will be his some day

    Chorus

    Not quite almost famous
    Not quite even popular
    Not quite underrated
    But damn was it fun

    Not quite almost famous
    But look how far we’ve come
  • Laying here
    On top of a cloud
    My arms wrapped around you

    I pull you near
    No longer loud
    You whisper “I love you too”


    Thick air
    Damp sheets
    Nearly unable to breathe

    Beautiful hair
    Line your cheeks
    You're all I need


    And I could lay here
    In this moment
    Forever

    I could die here
    In this moment


    This isn't the first
    This isn't the worst
    I must be cursed
    Because I know

    Soon you will leave
    Never to be seen
    Again

    Why did this have to happen again?
  • This is a Ozzy Osbourne-inspired parody of the song "In My Blood" by Shawn Mendes.

    Lyrics:

    Crazy, that’s how it goes, the train I’m in
    Sometimes I feel like getting drunk
    But I already am.
    I’m gonna eat this dove.

    Dealing with these record whores, getting nothing
    I brought these doves to let them soar, but now I’m hungry
    I could go release these birds slowly
    Just take a bite and you’ll feel better
    Spit out its head and you’ll feel better
    Just drink its blood it’s never better
    Ok, whatever

    Crazy, that’s how it goes, the train I’m in
    Sometimes I feel like doing drugs
    Last few I did were not enough
    Going crazy
    I’m living life in sin
    Sometimes I feel like getting drunk
    But I already am
    I’m gonna eat this dove.

    I’m gonna eat this dove.

    I think I may have lost my mind, I’m paranoid
    But can I see or am I blind, I’m destroyed
    I did too much coke, I need a pill, oh lord yeah
    I’m in my head I’m going

    Crazy, that’s how it goes, the train I’m in
    Sometimes I feel like doing drugs
    Last few I did were not enough
    Going crazy
    I’m living life in sin
    Sometimes I feel like getting drunk
    But I already am
    I’m gonna eat this dove

    I’m gonna drink its blood!

    It’s in my body now!
    It’s in my body now!
    I’m gonna spit it out!
    Out of my body now!

    Crazy, that’s how it goes, the train I’m in
    Sometimes I feel like getting drunk
    But I already am
    I’m gonna eat this dove.

    I’m gonna eat this dove
    I’m gonna drink its blood
    It’s in my body now
    I’m gonna eat this dove
    I’m gonna spit it out
    I’m gonna eat this dove
  • I bit my cheek today
    Eating some milk duds
    I bit it two more times
    Now my candy tastes like blood

    There's an eye lash in my eye
    And a splinter in my thumb
    A blister on my foot
    My back was burned by the sun

    A hang nail's nagging pain
    My zipper catches skin
    Brain freeze from Ice cream
    Thrown out my back again

    And you could have it all
    Status, wealth, and fame
    But barely stub your toe and all your in is pain

    Walking to the fridge
    In the morning dark
    Coffee table bangs my shin
    And I'm yelping from the pain

    Paper cuts the skin
    Such a minor thing
    Till sweat gets in the wound
    And it really starts to sting

    I went to pet my cat
    With a belly rub
    Hurt as the paws came out
    I should have worn some gloves

    And you could have it all
    Status, wealth, and fame
    But barely stub your toe and all your in is pain

    Chased and stung by bees
    Loose them in the woods
    Scratched up by the trees
    And they still stung me good

    A whole world of pie
    Just made to dine
    The meaning of life and it’s clear to see.

    Pie, know it will betray you
    Dismay and enslave you
    Grow that belly,
    Eat more like the man you were made to be.

    Fruits, veggies, lean meats
    With occasional treats
    Is the way to eat
    The beauty of food, as was meant to be.

    Fats, they will not betray you
    It’s carbs that will play you
    Eat more protein

    To strudel, french fries
    And fresh pastries
    Eat more like the man you were made to be.

    Now that I’m gone, I’ll reply and say
    I tried to meet you half the way
    I’ll Meet you all the way, meet you all the way,

    I can see your face still shining through the window on the other side
    I didn’t know that a guy like you could make me feel so scared, I’m Crying
    All I want to tell you is you never ever tried to compromise
    Its one way, just one way

    DEGREES OF GRAY
    ===============
    Used to, visualize
    things black, or white
    100, or zero
    True or False or Yes or No

    And now my master structure
    Has degraded to degrees of gray
    Left alone to discover
    The rock I'm standing on has ebbed away

    It's right, what's wrong
    Living where I don't belong
    Exposed, concealed
    So fake what I hoped was real
    Am I going blind
    With passing time?
    Took away what I dreamed was mine.
    Am I going deaf,
    Each passing breath?
    Living large just seems to speed up death

    But now my view of the whole world
    deteriorates to degrees of gray
    What felt so good now suddenly hurts
    Held so tightly that it slipped away

    And now my master structure
    Has degraded to degrees of gray
    Left alone to discover
    The rock I'm standing on has ebbed away

    Degraded to degrees of gray.

    I am starting to realize
    That only I am responsible for everything that is gonna follow
    )

    I dont knwo how stop, the itch is getting worse
    Another dirty needle, its just pleasure and impulse
    Its not me, but the life has been harsh, yeah

    Desperate and confused, I am hollow inside
    Looking for a new vein, I think it will be a while
    I know I am fine but they will tell you that I am crazy

    It almost seems like I have been here before

    Between the sounds of the sirens blaring
    There’s no way out, should I just pull the trigger and shoot?

    The rain is getting heavy,
    I can hear the footsteps
    This silly amnesia, I aim for my head
    And I knew damn well, that this.. this is the end

  • Can't Get Rid Of It


    I took your portrait down
    Leaving holes I'd only bored in theory
    Nail left on the ground
    For the incompletely leery soul to find

    And where it used to hang
    Appears a burnished shade
    An insubstantial ghost of you
    That I fear might never fade

    No metaphor provided
    Can approach that bitter shape
    Track the essence back as I did
    And there's no escape, make no mistake


    The room I'm in goes on and on and on
    I don't belong anymore
    But the way's occluded
    I can't find the door as you did
    I can't get rid of it

    (I can't get rid of it)
    (I can't get rid of, rid of, rid of)


    I knew there'd be a last call
    A final tock in the clock I'd counted upon
    Then it was no surprise when the spirits dried
    So why'd I want to know why

    I thought I tried to play
    That unruly game I called our time
    Your rules were obfuscated
    My racer weighted down, chasing you around the room


    The room I'm in goes on and on and on
    I don't belong anymore
    But the way's occluded
    I can't find the door as you did
    I can't get rid of it


    Dip my brain in straight paint stripper 'till it stops recreating your face
    Surround the sound of your voice with a choice of words 'till it drowns in place

    I brought the wall down
    Ghost and all, let it fall
    The void is gone now
    Filled and paved
    Poured out a shot again
    Spinning up my pain
    I cut the chains on the anchor you gave me
    Stepped on a landmine
    Nails embedded, got shredded
    Gritted up and walked it off
    Even though I may be lost
    That clock's still ticking away
    Last call was yesterday


    The room I'm in goes on and on and on
    It's pretty fucking long and boring
    But there's no way out
    Unless I kick the door in
  • You pulled me by the heart, from the start
    Took me to another galaxy

    And what was I to say? In a way
    I could tell you were the same as me

    When you
    Said my name
    You became
    The sun in my life

    and now I’m tumbling through space, in my place
    Why would I break free?

    I live in your light

    You set my heart on fire, in your pyre
    Burning everything inside of me

    I never stood in a chance, in a trance
    Cause you just have that effect you see

    When you
    Lit your flame
    I became
    The moon in your eyes

    and now I’m lost in your embrace, in my place
    How could I break free?

    I live in your light

  • Off, off to home, I go
    My feet sweep across the concrete roads
    I hope I find someone in waiting

    Look, a sullen child
    Her bare back a timid show
    She leaps to her feet as the rain gently pours

    I sleep in the evening sunshine
    Then dream of a ship, sailing
    And me onboard, gently weeping
    For to great lands, I would go

    I am a helpless deed
    Onto the shoulders of a giant, I climb
    I hope we tread a million miles away
    To the land of no living soul
    Panic pounds my heart and the blanket I grasp for
    The legs curled onto themselves, the head rested
    Hope spits upon the call, the fool tends to the herd
    The panic soars in the belly, staggering and stumbling
    Then shreds to tiny bits, sobbing wildly
    The fear piercing the body open, and you
    And you can mold it, sweat it, feel it
    But life will always be a sad affair

    I still want to find my old ex-girlfriend, who kicked me when I was down
    She slept with my best friend, in my own bed, and now it all burns to the ground

    ---Verse 3---
    I feel all this rottenness within me manifest in new found ways
    I went to chemotherapy and I shot up the whole place
    This nurse was screaming bloody murder when I grabbed her by the face
    Kissed her deeply and I smiled “We’re all dying anyway”

    ---Prechorus---
    Just hold me close
    Don't ever let me go
    I love you so
    Please don't let me die

    ---Chorus---
    I was young and had years left to spend
    But now I'm frightened of meeting the end
    So many wishes and dreams have been killed
    Guess I've only the nightmares to fulfill

    "Life's what you make of it" they told
    Words of regret from men getting old
    But there's something that only I can see
    Only a dying man can be free

    ---Instrumental/Outro---
    I don't feel so good, oh no (oh no)
    Don't feel so good...
  • Spoken word:

    hey girl,
    I know you were thinking about me
    Well, I've been thinking about you too
    Let me show you

    Verse:

    Saw her there
    Looking so fresh
    With her long dark hair
    Acting all cool
    Like she has no care
    Playing the fool
    Fooling the tools
    Don’t act like you’re scared

    Spoken Word:

    She bold, strong
    Not afraid to flaunt her thong
    I just wanna take her
    Get it all off
    This the kinda girl
    Make you wanna jack off

    Verse:

    So I approached her
    Began to chit the chat
    Slip a lil O that
    Not afraid to get a drink
    Never even think
    Just go go go go
    Til she riding my dink

    Chorus:

    We are we are
    Who we are
    We are we are
    Slaves of our brains

    Verse:

    So she came to bed
    Gave me some head
    Didn’t realize she’d soon be dead
    I give a new meaning to the hump and dump
    I don’t break up
    They’re the whores
    Who gotta pay up

    Chorus:

    We are we are
    Who we are
    We are we are
    Slaves of our brains

    Bridge:

    I simply can’t help who I’ve become
    This is never what I imagined, for love

    I only want the best
    Gotta get this off my chest
    Chicken’s aren’t the only ones
    With a tasty chest

    There's only one
    Final solution
    Only one way
    To reach my resolution

    I gotta build my kingdom
    For I am a god
    Carpe diem
    Don’t let me be wrong

    Chorus:

    We are we are (Don't let me be wrong)
    Who we are (Don't let me be wrong)
    We are we are
    Slaves of our brains

    Chorus:

    We are we are
    Who we are (Who we are, who we are)
    We are we are
    Slaves of our brains (Of our brains. of our brains)
  • ONE LITTLE KITTY

    VERSE
    One little kitty skipped and up-hopped
    and he leapt and he bobbled and he miggled ahead
    One little kitty skiddled and dropped
    now -just like his sister- dead

    He cried and he wept
    and he howled and he sobbed
    He yowled and he wowled
    and he blubbered and he bawled

    CHORUS
    'Twas daddy's little precious and uncle's true pride
    Gramps also loved him, a tadbit too much
    But mama, oh mama, you envious snide,
    you spiked and you spiced with poisons in his lunch

    VERSE
    But all were so busy, they all were away
    And kitty did not live to see the next light of day
    You tossed and launched
    and twirled him aside
    The neighbour's two monsters
    of children's delight.....

    CHORUS
    'Twas daddy's little precious and uncle's true pride
    Gramps also loved him, a tadbit too much
    But mama, oh mama, you envious snide,
    you spiked and you spiced with poisons in his lunch

    VERSE
    They took him to cook him to beat him inside
    They filmed him and taped him and then pyrelighted
    They tossed him and launched him
    and twirled him aside
    The neighbour's two monsters
    such children's delight

    CHORUS
    One little kitty springled to death
    He did not live good, he did not live long
    But heeder, don't sadden, don't grieve, don't disgrace
    At least little kitty now has a cute song
  • In or out, I fake this life
    Bury pain, hate, and strife
    Hold my beer, angst ridden fear
    It's too much me, to real life clear
    One shot to make this mine
    Miss this shot, be left behind

    Chorus

    (Fake a smile
    Take a mile)
    Similarity is rewarded
    Don't let your plan be thwarted
    Looking out for number one
    Your dream won't be crushed

    Verse 2

    Sinking feeling in my soul
    Make a meme about this hole
    The void ends with a bullet
    Happiness is a trigger, better pull it
    Got one shot, caliber matters
    A chamber or the grey to splatter

    Repeat Chorus

    Verse 3

    Basic rules for being happy
    Slice yourself but don't be sappy
    Grab elation like a live wire
    Bathe in peace like monks on fire
    Life's too real and too messed up
    Joy's a bridge too far, might as well jump

    Chorus
  • Rose in rows upon the pyre
    No one knows us on the vine
    Glows and goes up in the fire
    Leave a little brittle leaf behind

    In unbeaten earth
    I planted Daisy dear
    Not fit for a pot
    But gotta keep her near
    So I dug out a spot
    In a comfortable plot
    A sensible garden

    Bloom a gentle curve
    Petals settled down
    I sing her a tune
    When there's no one around
    Ain't it amazing when the rain begins to
    (Drip)
    (Drop)
    Stop that pouring
    Rain cloud go away
    She won't need any more today
    But now the firmament has made this soil much less permanent

    Don't worry dear
    You're here
    The roots on the trees
    We will hide you right beside me

    Rose in rows upon the pyre
    No one knows us on the vine
    Glows and goes up in the fire
    Leave a little brittle leaf behind
    Shows and grows until I tire
    Stem the end I'll never find
    Rows and rows upon the pyre
    Wilted guilt all in a line

    By my Daisy dear
    I planted Lily fine
    A color without peer
    A stigma made of mine
    The secondary seed I needed to make this garden pop
    (Drip Drop)
    Next to Lily fine I designed another hole for Marigold
    And all told along came Holly sooner than I may have planned

    Softened showers
    Give flowers the power
    To remain in fertile land
    Hard rain don't show my hand
    Or any hand at all

    Rose in rows upon the pyre
    No one knows us on the vine
    Glows and goes up in the fire
    Leave a little brittle leaf behind
    Shows and grows until I tire
    Stem the end I'll never find
    Rows and rows upon the pyre
    Wilted guilt all in a line

  • 1st verse:
    I can't let it go
    I can't let it go
    I can't let it go
    Just gotta take it slow

    I've never been this low
    I've never been this low
    I've never been this low
    It doesn't make it so

    chorus:
    Couldn't stay tomorrow,
    Couldn't stay today,
    Couldn't live with all how,
    The world has gone to shit,

    Don't want all the seasons,
    Seasons of my mind,
    Don't want any demons,
    Don't want none of this.

    Except it's what I need.
    Except it's what I need.

    2nd verse:
    I won't let it show
    I won't let it show
    I won't let it show
    But I won't take it slow

    Got to break this low
    Got to break this low
    Got to break this low
    I have to let this go

    last chorus:

    Don't want to end it all
    In my darkest dreams,
    But my own mind,
    Tears me at the seams.

    (I guess it's what I need)
    (I guess it's what I need)

    Couldn't be at all that,
    I don't need to be,
    Couldn't see at all that,
    I need all of this.

  • [Chorus]
    Smoke and mirrors round the room
    Like someone put a spell on you
    Fighting, but it’s no use
    Tell me, what am I supposed to do

    [Verse 1]
    Met a girl from India
    Says she wanna be the one
    Then she went and cut me off
    Like “sorry babe it’s not your fault”


    [Verse 2]
    Vendetta mask on your face
    Then you disappear without a trace
    No sign of a trap door
    Leave me wishing there was something more

    [Chorus]
    Smoke and mirrors round the room
    Like someone put a spell on you
    Fighting, but it’s no use
    Tell me, what am I supposed to do!
  • He was born in. Budapest
    1878 came to the U.S.
    His dad a Rabbi in the Midwest
    Then went east, a New York address

    At nine he learned the trapeze
    "Prince of the Air", he did it with ease
    A French magician inspired his dreams
    And learned most of the tricky routines

    A 1st class magician with talent and brains
    Conjured illusions and escaping restraints
    a permanent legacy of magic remains
    Harry Houdini, the Master of Chains!

    Held a mentor in high regard
    Named himself the King of Cards
    But Escapes were much more hard
    His audience would be caught off guard

    Did many shows with his brother Dash
    At Coney Island made very good cash
    His self-confidence was unabashed
    Harry Houdini had that special panache

    Met Bess, who became his wife
    and his assistant for the rest of his life
    His opportunities became quite rife
    Freed himself without tools or a knife

    Got out of handcuffs from behind his back
    Found Martin Beck to manage his act
    Put Harry on the vaudeville track
    Top crowds he'd always attract

    A 1st class magician with talent and brains
    Conjured illusions and escaping restraints
    a permanent legacy of magic remains
    Harry Houdini, the Master of Chains!

    Bought a house in New York and moved in
    Went to France and found to his chagrin
    The daughter-in-law of his idol Robert Houdin
    Only surviving family didn't like him.

    Harry should have lived a long life, but
    A college student punched him in the gut
    A right winger, a biblical nut
    What else would have been, we?l never know what?
  • I got my magic wand
    I'll bring it to ya
    Ya never knew, huh
    I could lift you up

    In ways from fantasy
    I know that I can be

    In wizardry and casting spells

    Books and my chants
    I'd doubt that I can't
    Split the world in half
    And save some for another day

    Toss and turn
    Feign surprise at the burn
    You know the arts I've been into

  • I shuffle the cards
    But they remain in the same order
    Step right up
    I bet you’ve seen this trick before but not like this
    I bring my finger to the brim of my felt hat jet black
    We’ll see what I can conjure just like that

    Watch closely
    So you don't miss
    I'll move slowly
    So you can see
    I've got nothing to hide
    So just keep your eyes
    Right on me
    Through the whole thing
    But you'll only
    See what you want to see
    The rules just don’t apply
    You won't believe your eyes

    I know it’s so much like uncovering
    The secrets behind everything
    But it’s not
    It’s only a trick

    We take off the gloves
    Corrupt all the doves
    Just by being us
    My hands blunder about
    My sleeves are full of doubt
    My rabbit, fed on stale carrots
    Scared of the hat, desperately sad
    I put him back in the cage all alone
    Roll up my sleeves and go

    CHORUS

    Misdirection
    Is still a direction
    A whisper dressed up as a roar
    The show is a thrill
    And you’re just a shill
    So here’s your encore
    It’s just an illusion there’s no magic anymore
    The grand finale is just another trap door


    Watch closely
    So you don’t miss
    I move slowly
    So you don’t see
    I have so much to hide
    Don’t look me in the eye
    I’m bleeding
    You all see right through me
    I’m desperately
    Just fishing for a smile
    For just a little while

    I know you see this vulnerability
    As my true identity but it’s not
    It’s only a trick

    What’s the magic word?
    Please - that’s absurd.
    I don’t believe your incantations.
    All of your lies are turds.

    Please Please
    Thank you Thank you
    Best to follow the rules
    The incantations of etiquette
    Magic phrases (to) charm the fools

    The smile is nice; the talk is cheap.
    We are sick of all your speech

    It’s please
    It’s goodbye
    It’s I’ll love you all the time
  • I met a woman down in New Orleans
    She showed things I thought were make believe
    She had black hair, black nails, a black dress and black soul
    But she put a white hot spell on me

    I met her one night in her black magic shop
    I quickly learned this was no tourist stop
    Among the candles and the charms I saw her looking at me
    And when my eyes met hers I could not break free

    She showed me things I thought could not exist
    An alternate world from when we first kissed
    The dead were walking the shadows were talking
    Black magic woman she set me free

    She spoke a name I had not heard before
    But when she said it I could choose no more
    She made me walk with her to the graveyard
    She said a chant and then she gave me a drink

    The physical world, it started to mist
    I saw an alternate world from when we first kissed
    The dead were dancing the shadows were glancing
    Black magic woman she set me free

    She showed me things I thought could not exist
    An alternate world from when we first kissed
    The dead were jumping my head was thumping
    Black magic woman she set me free

    Goblins and ghouls and zombies and spirits
    Circled us as we danced in the moonlight
    She kissed me and my soul left my body
    The further I rose, the louder she laughed
    I almost succumbed and gave in to her magic
    But somehow I realized that this was not right
    I snapped to my senses and sought out my body
    She shrieked as she saw me, and all the ghouls chased me
    But I moved to fast and I made it back
    As soon as I did, this world disappeared
    I heard the ghouls yell as they reached out to grab me
    I twisted around, to get away
    I spun around and looked at the sorceress
    She pulled out a doll that looked just like me
    The last thing I saw was the scowl on her face

    I woke up thinking it was all a dream
    And it was time to leave new Orleans
    But when I got back home and I laid down to bed
    I found myself back in the world of the dead

    She showed me things I thought could not exist
    An alternate world from when we first kissed
    The dead were reaching the shadows were leeching
    Black magic woman won't you set me free
  • The dust starts to settle down
    Light glares off your sweaty head
    A sonic scream of gasoline
    Did anyone grab the Desert Eagle?

    The sun above is beating down
    It makes it hard to concentrate
    Fifteen past the hour
    Nothing so far has gone as planned

    We’ve come this far and theres a united sense of failure
    Trial after trial and no one could have prepared for this
    She smiles wide. She smiles as the whole thing falls to pieces
    And we’re left here defeated as the bomb begins to beep

    We all exchange a glance around
    Light bursts from within your hands
    A sudden flash of dust and ash
    And a sound they heard for miles

    The sunset claims another one
    Barricades of flashing lights
    A major theft, a crater left
    It’s the story of the night

    We had a mission and we faithfully stuck to it
    Little did we know there was sand inside this microchip
    Massive venture, nothing gained except a gaping hole
    There may not be a moral but theres a debt thats never paid in full

    We’d come this far and there was a light at the end of the tunnel
    Then the tunnel began collapsing and everyone was trapped inside
    We had a chance but then it blew up in our faces
    And I remember my last thought being, “I hope you get away”
  • -Verse-

  • I climb down the mountain
    (as important as up)
    Heel and hips smashed tight
    aching body, thoughts of light
    There are mountains in us all
    Some big, some small,
    growing or shrinking
    shadowed or snowcapped
    It was the Fall before your fall

    We buried it together, I bury it alone

    I crawl out of the desert
    Lost some things out there
    by fault and on purpose
    new and old verses
    Skin chapped, thirsty, eyes burn wide
    Searched outside to find my inside
    It was the Spring before my spring
    But something in me still hides

    We buried it together, I bury it alone


    I swim out of the sea
    Body soaked and salted
    emotions calm and deep
    It feels as if I awoke from sleep
    scaled up, scaled down
    Complete silence, deafening sound
    Sunshine or snowing
    frozen or flowing
    My oar hits the water
    I keep on rowing

    We buried it together, I bury it alone

    Ive sipped love from a long stem glass
    Dipped my toe as the waters passed
    Never deep enough to last (ohhh)

    Felt the chill as I walked through rain
    With you it's just not the same (noo)

    Now that I am on your shore
    I know I've never felt this way before

    I been needing something
    Now I've found it in the blue

    Verse
    I'll admit that I feared your waves
    Their not the only things that break
    But I still dove in anyway (yeah)
    And swimming with you in that sea
    Is the best thing that happened to me
    I saw what love could be (oh yeah)

    And I'm left here knowing
    You can never unlove the ocean

    We went from swimming to floating to drifting
    And our giant ocean slowly went empty
    Leaving salt in our tears and burns on our skin…we

    Remember the summers we spent as kids
    Going weekly to the pool
    We'd swim and splash around for hours
    We thought the divers looked really cool


    Oh, we could watch on end for hours
    How they could fly with grace
    Doing flips and tricks, and pikes and spins
    And flying twelve feet into space


    And then one day we thought we'd try it
    Climbed the ladder up to the board
    You ran and lept right in
    It was beautiful to watch you soar


    I stepped to the edge I glanced to the ground
    The sight down had me frozen on the spot
    "That was amazing!" you cried up to me
    "We'll go togther if you want."

    Chorus

    I'm so grateful that you're with me
    Through bad fortune and poor health
    But now I need you to let me go
    Some things I've got to do myself

    Post Chorus:

    And I know you'll always love me
    And it cheers me when you phone
    But this time I must find my feet myself
    Some things I've got to do alone


    Verse

    we're both grown somewhat older
    No matter what I'm going towards
    One thing that I keep on finding is
    Like's full of diving boards


    And through it all I know you are with me
    If I lose or if I win
    I close my eyes and find the strength within me
    And now I dive right in

    Chorus

    I'm so grateful that you're with me
    Through bad fortune and poor health
    But now I need you to let me go
    Some things I've got to do myself


    I'm so grateful that you're with me
    I'm so grateful that you're with me
    I'm so grateful that you're with me
    Some things I've got to do myself

    Post Chorus:

    And I know you'll always love me
    And it cheers me when you phone
    But this time I must find my feet myself
    Some things I've got to do alone
  • In this moment there is quiet
    Tranquility and peace of mind
    Come tommorow, there will be fighting
    People dying, I want to leave it behind

    If only there was
    A simple answer
    A quick and easy result

    Take a look at each other
    Find the faults, but still see the work of art
    But all I see is constant fighting, and for a brighter day I will long

    Fake smiles on the surface
    Lying deeper, is a war nobody speaks

    If only there was
    A simple answer
    A quick and easy result

    Take a look at each other
    Find the faults, but still see the work of art
    But all I see is constant fighting, and for a brighter day I will long

    You have reasons for your beliefs
    Just like I have reasons for mine
    If only there was

    A simple answer
    Then we wouldn't have to fight
  • I could hold the cup you hold
    and the love you pour I’ll talk
    break your sugar bones and crisp
    sweep your sweat,

    take your filth, take your disease
    as as noting nothing, nowhere,
    world is home, make me home.

    You hold your stars high
    is not nowhere I would not climb

    You’re to serve the Lord
    that’s what ma ma said, no long ago,
    and I’d break my meager figs
    while touching your fingertips

    Do you know? There is also rain in Verdun.

    Is a mask or your true self
    I don’t even know that you know
    I’d think is a complex
    puzzle to be solved.
  • FENDER

    In 1938 Leo Fender
    started his radio service shop
    and an amplifier repair center
    he made new designs that really popped

    With Doc Kaufmann Leo formed K & F
    they made amps with Pedal Steel guitars
    Had a disagreement so he did it himself
    Never knew he'd take it so far

    Moved from Pedal Steel to Electric
    Noel Bogg made the first F emblem
    Then the Telecaster - it was sick
    but needed a Truss bar, when humid it bent


    1950 came the Broadcaster,
    and Esquire with a single pickup
    Then came the Telecaster
    Success without a hiccup

    And the piece-made design was a go
    Assembly line - it made it a hit
    Great body and fretboard made the music flow
    The best guitar you have to admit

    Fender rolled out the P-Bass
    In '54, they unveiled the Strat
    The best guitar in the space
    Once you played it, that was that
  • Another city in the rear view mirror
    A scribbled address to some lonely dive
    Just played to some half empty room
    Some old and half-forgotten tunes
    But for two hours I felt alive


    And a hard rain’s coming
    And the wind blows cold
    But I got my axe so I’m already home


    Another phone call from a run down venue
    Another city barely on the map
    Can’t say I’ve ever tasted fame
    But they never forget my name
    And they say I’m always welcome back


    And a hard rain’s coming
    And the wind blows cold
    But I got my axe so I’m already home

    And a hard rain’s coming
    Like it’s come and gone
    And I’ll have my moment in the sun
  • Speak of the power, speak of the triumph
    Speak of the one who would not be denied!
    Who is the great one that conquered LeDesp?
    Tell us immortal, speak of the story
    The trials, the hardship, the destruction
    The laymen that tried to stand in his way
    A universe conquered with one more to go
    Speak of Anand and his humble beginnings
    Speak of his rise above the ashes below

    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero enough to grow our state
    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero for us to celebrate

    Long before he dreamed of earth
    Anand faced the the depths of Evil!
    LeDesp would not just let him pass
    He would not just give him the universe
    A hero he must be able to triumph
    An alien from far away claiming his destiny
    LeDesp kept his race as peasants
    LeDesp treated his race unfairly
    Anand would call on the thunder of fury to win the day!

    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero enough to grow our state
    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero for us to celebrate

    With power and force and armies in tow
    Like a starving pack of wolves ready
    The stars were bright and his strength grew
    LeDesp's followers turned against him!
    LeDesp's peasants inspired by Anand revolt!
    Anand is now a God, he is powerful
    The armies grew and the stars began to fade
    As now Anand is more powerful and bright than all the stars
    The war was won and more and more sing

    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero enough to grow our state
    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero for us to celebrate

    Now the hero charges forth
    And Earth will be collected
    Adventures await in the seas of Fate!
    The fiery alien from far away
    Earth will fall as LeDesp fell too
    Under the thunderous clouds and blinding light
    The aliens will be too much to handle
    Earth will fall dim and the end will come
    Anand will not be denied from owning the Universe

    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero enough to grow our state
    Anand the great, Anand the great
    Hero for us to celebrate

    --/--
    Anand was chosen because it sounds like something from an epic, but it's for Anand Kumar who came from humble beginnings and helps people out of poverty by teaching them engineering - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anand_Kumar

  • THE REIGN OF HARSHA

    Harshavardhana, also known as Harsha, was an Indian emperor who ruled over a large empire in northern India from 606 to 647. The second son of Prabhakarvardhana, he hailed from the Pushyabhuti Dynasty. After the death of his father, his elder brother Rajyavardhana took over the reins of the kingdom. However, Rajyavardhana too died, most probably killed by Shashanka, the ruler of the Gauda kingdom following which the young Harsha came to power. After the downfall of the Gupta Empire in the middle of the 6th century, Northern India had fallen apart to small republics and minor states. After ascending the throne Harsha united the small republics from Punjab to central India, to create a vast unified empire. Under his rule, the empire underwent considerable expansion and grew to include the Punjab, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bengal, Odisha and the entire Indo-Gangetic plain north of the Narmada River. He proved himself to be an able administrator and presided over a kingdom where peace and prosperity prevailed for most of the time. He had an intellectual bent of mind and his court was a hub of artistic activities. Harsha himself was a Mahayana Buddhist and was tolerant towards all Indic faiths.

    Born in India, 2nd son to the king
    The year was 590, sister and brother
    The King died - his elder brother succeeding
    But the Malava dominion made everyone suffer

    Harshavardhana's sister Rajyashri
    was kidnapped and her husband slaughtered
    Malava fell under the King Brother's Blitzkrieg
    Enemy was destroyed by marauders

    But Brother Rajyavardhana was killed
    Betrayed by a ruler he thought was a friend
    In 606 Harsha's destiny becomes fulfilled
    At age 16 to the crown he ascends

    The first thing he does is promise revenge
    Inherited his brother-in-law's city
    But his family deaths have to be avenged
    For the backstabber Shashanka no pity

    Rescued his sister by a forceful attack
    but the enemy somehow survived
    Harsha added regions as cities were sacked
    But Shashanka still remained alive

    Punjab, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Bengal
    were added to the regions he reigned
    Odisha and Northern India all were assailed
    Added them to the cities he gained

    But to the people he ruled he was good
    Benevelent prosperous and fair
    The economy swelled and he helped where he could
    For the underprivleged and poor he did care

    But he could not defeat the the southern traitor
    And trade business dropped which was alarming
    He thought how to make his kingdom greater
    So he moved its main focus to farming

    With Emperor Taizong, Tang Dynasty made friends
    Needed more allies to make power wider
    And to his country he contined to tend
    Made the 1st diplomatic relations with China

    Made a giant university as a walled fort
    Promoted learning, literature and arts
    Allowed religious diversity in his court
    But hated Shashanka in his heart

    Converted to Buddhism from Hindu
    And even wrote 3 plays of his own
    In the last one the two religions were merged into
    His giant religious gathering, it still goes

    With his wife Durgavati, had 2 sons
    They'd inherit the world that he built
    But all of his plans came undone
    His chief minister had his sons killed

    And he tried again to win war in the South
    And lost again to the kings that he hated
    Revenge he'd have to go without
    From his high point his glory was faded

    So he sat alone on his throne in the North
    Empty hall full of treasure and maps
    Nothing mattered anymore on this earth
    And when he died his whole kingdom collaped.
  • Verse

    On a foggy, Autumn night there was a meeting round the lights
    A choice was made to give this child a safe life
    But soon thereafter strange events began occurring
    And it was made quite clear that this was not an ordinary boy
    No he was not an ordinary boy
    He never had a choice

    Chorus

    But pretty soon this kid was flying around on a broom
    Making history, making friends and causing mischief

    Verse

    He killed an ogre without any question
    And this was when he was still just eleven
    And when he turned twelve things got insane
    He conjured a sword and put it through a basilisk’s brain
    He flew on a hippogriff’s back, after saving it’s life, how sweet is that?
    I’m telling you, he’s usually a pretty cool guy except for that time that Dumbledore died
    After that moment things got intense, he scoured the land, living in tents
    Searching for horcruxes, learning the truth,
    That sometimes the horcrux is actually you
    And you have to make choices to keep people safe
    Make an effort to beat he-who-must-not-be-named
    And you’ll grow to raise sons and sire a daughter
    Who’s adventures are the product of another author (so who cares)

    Chorus

    Sometimes a curse is thrust upon you without say
    Silver lining though, you get to talk to snakes
    It isn’t easy solving mysteries and getting your homework done
    You never asked for this but still you are the chosen one

    Bridge

    Conquer darkness, it’s your onus
    Harness light in your patronus

    Chorus

    But pretty soon this kid was battling werewolves under the moon
    Making potions, fighting bullies, eating chocolate
    But when the time arrived, he never froze, no, it was do or die
    You could see him fighting bravely against this noseless guy

    Chorus/Outro

    Sometimes a curse is plainly seen upon your face
    You have to ask yourself “do I even believe in fate?”
    You’ll find the answer has no matter, the questions will always come
    You never asked for this but still you are the chosen one
  • Noble borne of
    Ash and flame
    Carried toward
    A charred, discarded name

    Remade in
    The gray horizon
    Hungry soul remolded into bolder stone
    Reclaimer
    Mortal blizzard
    Crashing forth to
    Take it back by bitter force

    Crown lain gravely cold
    Great aged halls debased
    Hewn out, reduced and sold
    Proud legacy erased

    Reclaimer comes to bear
    A grudge thought dead and buried
    Bright eyes surprising
    Righteous rising
    Blood line retraced

    In the hold of a father
    O'er a ghostly throne
    Hangs a pale reminder
    Of a kin unknown
    But this history here
    Proves a noble more alone
  • Backside Heart Attack

    Never expected to be undone
    Struck dumb by a bum sat astride
    The commonest dreams of a mountaineer
    Swept out by a midnight caboose ride

    Back side
    Heart attack, I
    Want to be buried out under the moon

    If these bones can't handle it
    Wrap me up in the rumpled remains
    Though it might smack of hubris
    Tell me you'll do this
    Leave me there anyway

    Back side
    Heart attack, I
    Want to be buried out under the moon
    Back door
    Heart attack for you
    For you

    Soundly defeated, and roundly
    Clapped in a grip 'twixt a cheek
    Waning at dawn, withered and drawn upon hilly and chillier peaks
    Find me a space back home
    In the trunk of unknown, oh

    Back side
    Heart attack, I
    Want to be buried out under the moon
    Back door
    Heart attack for you
    For you
  • KICK IT FURTHER IN
    ----------------------------
    VERSE 1
    Destroying my neurons
    Rotting my brain stem
    Surrounded by morons
    I have to blame them
    The worst is the guy
    I had to fire at work
    Destroying my mind
    That idiot jerk

    CHORUS
    You don't know your own ass
    From a hole in the ground
    You're so freaking stupid
    The idiocy astounds
    Your head is so far up your ass
    Don't know how to begin
    Should I pull your half-wit head out,
    Or kick it further in!

    VERSE 2
    I'm so sick of people
    not using their brains
    With thinking this feeble
    I'm going insane
    This guy made decisions
    With no thought at all
    And he never would listen
    Like talking to a brick wall

    CHORUS
    You don't know your own ass
    From a hole in the ground
    You're so freaking stupid
    The idiocy astounds
    Your head is so far up your ass
    Don't know how to begin
    Should I pull your half-wit head out,
    Or kick it further in!

    VERSE 3
    Everyday you act appalled
    There's nothing but complaints
    Everyone else is a total dolt
    And you're a freaking saint
    Instead of thinking with your brain
    It's someone else's fault
    Now your life is down the drain
    So rub your wounds with salt

    SOLO

    FINALE
    You don't know your own ass
    From a hole in the ground
    You're so freaking stupid
    The idiocy astounds
    Your head is so far up your ass
    Don't know how to begin
    Should I pull your half-wit head out,
    Or kick it further in.
  • I built a machine that can do anything
    Made it in my image cause I look amazing

    But I'm not the best engineer and I think
    I may have botched the waste-processing

    Noooo, oh noooo!
    There's a... crack
    It was such a nice hypothesis
    Now it's gone to feces

    I thought it was going to be super tight
    But what a bummer, my design was shite
    I had assumed it was perfect
    But the surface was hiding many defects

    A machine for mass production
    The output causing mass infection
    I had no way to treat it (eat it)
    I had to flush it (flush it)

    I's wibbly-wobbly, but it's not a time machine
    It is soft, it is mush, it is without a sheen

    How will I ever
    Sell my invention?
    Am I doomed?
    Am I doomed to fail?

    Noooo, oh noooo!
    There's a... crack
    Such a nice hypothesis
    Now it's all gone to feces

    In an astounding turn of events
    A stroke of luck ended my torment
    Investors are buying my machine
    My sugars-to-ideas engine

    I'll finally be able to pay rent
    I can stop living in my mum's basement
    Pay attention to my hygiene
    And once and for all leave this IT routine
  • You tell me I don’t belong here, But you know i’ve never cared

    You say that this spot’s not for me, and I just sit and stare

    If there’s a place that’s tucked away, quiet safe and small

    You will likely find me there, curled up in a ball




    Verse:


    Watch out, cause i’m on the prowl

    Spend most my time on looking out

    For a nice warm place to settle down

    And flop my body on the ground


    I don’t need a lot of space

    All I need’s a cozy place

    In fact the smaller space is much more pleasing

    I feel the safest when I squeeze in


    Sometimes I get pushed away

    I brush it off, it’s all okay

    It feels bad, but I can deal though

    Leave a present on the pillow


    Live a simple life, don’t want for much

    Just a small basket or a cozy hutch

    A Bowl, A sink, A couch, A plate

    And to show my love, sometimes, your face


    Chorus:


    You tell me I don’t belong here, But you know i’ve never cared

    You say that this spot’s not for me, and I just sit and stare

    If there’s a place that’s tucked away, quiet safe and small

    You will likely find me there, curled up in a ball

    Verse:


    I see you on that leather couch

    Just drinking beers and hanging out

    Not thinking of your lifelong friend

    And where he's gonna put his end


    Tonight you'll rake that Sandy box

    And I'll go sit amongst your socks

    You'll push me away like you always do

    And I'll have my weekly chat with you


    You see...


    (Change flow)

    Hypothetically, you and me are existing symbiotically

    When you move your feet and lose your seat, I revel in your body heat

    And though a recently vacant seat is much like Shangri la to me

    When it comes to spots to rest my head, I strike opportunistically


    So as you see, it's your own damn fault

    (Quick speed section)

    If you don't want me in the pots and pans, then I suggest that you not leave them out

    (Back to slow cadence)

    Don't yell at me, or act a fool

    Cause I live by my golden rule


    If I fits I sits.

  • Nice to meet ya, my name is Gerald.
    I live on a lilypad just off the edge of the Michigan
    I spend most of my day toiling for my family
    Catching flies and other bugs to keep their bellies full
    It's a tedious life without much fun day-to-day
    But if it means my wife and tadpoles are happy
    Then I guess a life of mediocrity is good enough for me
    Don't be fooled, I'm satisfied - I just wish there was more.

    I live
    Alone
    In my
    Abode
    I just
    don't know
    so I just
    I cry
    Alone
    for what
    don't know
    they see
    me cry
    i can't
    know why
    i want
    to fly
    reach up
    and touch
    the sky
    break free
    and run
    away
    and not
    turn back

    sit upon my lilypad
    staring right up at the clouds
    ponder my reality
    see the me who isn't me
    dream away the dark sorrow
    hopping for a tomorrow
    where i am who i have dreamed
    inside i yell and i scream
    let me break from this prison
    run from this indecision
    i claim that i am happy

    and yet
    i see
    a world
    sans me
    may be
    more free
    it hurts
    i cry
    can't i
    just die
    drown out
    sorrow
    no to-
    morrow
    i'll say
    goodbye
    run off
    explore
    maybe
    life is
    worth it
    living
    is not
    that bad
    at least
    i hope

    So you might have noticed by now that things aren't going very well for me.
    So I'm going to leave and wander the world. I want to see something, experience life.
    I can't live trapped at home on my lily, I need to breathe, and find something worth finding.
    So I'm gonna hop away, leave my family and past behind, and only then can I truly live.

    Ribbit
    Ribbit
    Ready
    Hit it
    Jump out
    Leaping
    Hopping
    Hoping
    Restart
    Anew
    A fresh
    New life
    A world
    For me
    To see
    Explore
    I care
    It's new
    So cool
    I feel
    Alive
    Begin
    Alone
    I guess
    There might
    Be hope

    Incredible...
    Inspiring...
    Untouched...
    Beautiful...
    It's there...
    I can see it...
    It's indescribable...
    This is my future...
    I can finally breathe...
    This is worth fighting for...

    And so, I venture off towards the mountains. Seeing nature outside of my world is breathtaking.
    A weight has been lifted off my shoulders. This is the best decision I've ever made
    I turn around and see a foreign figure - something large, something fast. It's new and confusing.
    What... is this magnificent beast?
  • Once upon a long ago
    A fool fell deep in love
    It's vital, reader, that you know
    What this fool was made of

    He wasn't very tall or thin
    He was small squat and green
    He wasn't human, he was him
    A frog who had to dream

    He wasn't cursed, you understand
    Was not a prince disguised
    Yet loved the Princess of the land
    Who sought love far and wide

    He courted with her courters,
    Woo'd with wet advances
    Which was allowed, by order
    She believed in equal chances

    But then, reader, she was betrothed
    To the poor frog's dismay
    A suitor royal, human, clothed
    Suited in every way

    But the nobleman was cold
    He wanted the doting frog dead
    He vowed to eat it whole
    When he found frog prints in her bed

    Have you ever been told you've got a frog in your throat?
    You don't
    Cause that frog inside would puff up wide and croak
    Til you choked

    The Nobleman died when he tried to eat the frog alive
    As the main course on their wedding night

    The hero survived, the villain croaked
    The frog pushed his way out of his throat
    Onto the princess's plate, for their first dinner date
    By then their love lived, by choice or by fate

    It's vital that a princess knows what her Prince is made of
    It's not the height or the clothes, but that he's filled with true love
    And if he doesn't transform after they kiss
    He'll still be a prince, because she says he is
  • Croaking for Joy

    Oh, you might feel like this whole wide world,
    Is nothing but a bore.

    You might think, all is seen and nothing is new.

    You might even think, nothing can make you feel anything anymore.

    Well i implore you now,
    To look past the creek.

    There the frogs wade in primal joy.
    Splashing about in the hazy air.
    Unaware of the dangers around.

    At night when the predators prowl, they still croak, not minding anything.

    Can we not all learn from their simple croaking and joy.

    In even the foggiest swamp or the loudest suburban garden, you can catch their shiny green presence.

    Please sing with me

    Everywhere frogs wade in primal joy.
    Splashing about in the hazy air.
    Unaware of the dangers around.

    At night when the predators prowl, they still croak, not minding anything.

    They might just be an animal to you, but even the most unassuming has something
  • We put the hop in hip-hop
    Ain’t no question who’s the king of this swamp
    When that record flips we got no time for flops
    Leapfrog to the top every time our track dops

    So here’s how it goes when we start the show
    Spittin’ venom, gonna end ‘em with that poison dart flow
    Watch your heart slow ‘til you choke and croak
    Wishin’ it was all just a frog in your throat

    Strike by land and sea with the illest aim
    Total mastery of every terrain
    Our song plays and the masses rave
    We rollin’ in green like it’s the second plague

    Now you best pray ‘cause your dirge is sung
    No one’s spared anywhere by this rapid-fire tongue
    It’ll be the last lesson that you realize
    We’re the fiends in green, you’re gonna drop like flies

    Here come dem bois, we don’t stop, we roll on
    Too slippery for haters to get a hold on
    They green with envy but their threats are empty
    ‘Cause we’re princes in disguise ruling all we see

    I’m like Kermit when the pigs come chasin’
    Got them ragin’ at all the hell I’m raisin’
    I dodge ‘em like Frogger ‘cause you already know
    Who’s got the only flow harder than Battletoads
  • Verse 1
    You rib-b-b-b-b-b-broke my bullish heart
    You tore me apart
    Sci-lab surgeon cut me down
    You dissect the best cross section
    Of what I felt inside

    Verse 2
    You rib-b-b-b-b-b-broke my bumpy back
    You put me flat, babe
    Skin deep scalpel gimme hell
    You begin the pushpin breakdown
    Of how I b-b-bit off
    More than I could chew

    Bridge
    So I choked
    And my plans all croaked before you
    As it went on and on and on and on and on

    Chorus
    We were born too shallow
    For the pond scum pair that we made
    In the hop-to hollow of my head
    We never left that better glade
    I towed the line
    Now you owe
    The fine is far too deep to show
    So let's go toe to toe to toe
  • FROG ODYSSEY

    VERSE 1
    Born in the water
    No legs and no hands
    No mother, no father
    Can't go on land

    What if I'm eaten
    Can I just stay alive
    On algae I'm feeding
    I struggle and strive

    CHORUS 1:
    Born as a pollywog
    How will I be as a frog?
    Will life be like I expected,
    Or end in a lab dissected?
    What does life mean to me?
    'Cause this is my Odyssey

    VERSE 2
    Now I'm feeling much stronger
    And my legs hold me up
    The days growing longer
    I start to be tough

    No longer a victim
    I won't have to hide
    My heart is still ticking
    New arms at my side

    CHORUS 2
    Born as a pollywog
    How will I be as a frog?
    Will life be like I wanted,
    Can I succeed undaunted
    What kind of life will I see?
    'Cause this is my Odyssey

    VERSE 3
    I can finally breathe air
    And climb up on earth
    I am quite well aware
    Lucky to survive past my birth

    Because I'm luxky I made it
    And for my siblings who fell
    I'll work hard at mating
    Make a new mass of egg cells

    But now wlll my life now be worth it
    On hard land I now dwell
    Standing tall on the turf, it
    Seems like I'll spend my life well

    CHORUS 3
    Born as a pollywog
    How will I be as a frog?
    Good acts life comprised?
    Will life be all I surmised?
    Back to lay eggs by the reeds
    'Cause this is my Odyssey
  • Metamorphosis

    VERSE

    The first morning of my existence
    A little speck among little specks
    Four thousand of my closest brethren
    In an arrangement most complex

    Time marches, I start this
    Growth process rather quickly
    And soon I
    Have survived
    Though it's been a little tricky

    CHORUS

    From egg to polliwog, from polliwog to frog
    the body I know right now is not my last
    From ponds and lakes and streams, to dirt and leaves and trees
    My placement may be changing rather fast
    But don't forget
    I'm not dead yet

    VERSE

    The water surrounding me
    So clear, so pure, so fragrant
    The sunlight shining through the waves
    adorns me in bright raiment
    And yet my growing is not done
    I'm lacking legs and needing lungs
    My body finds a way
    to survive another day

    CHORUS

    From egg to polliwog, from polliwog to frog
    I'm changing at a record-breaking pace
    From dirt and leaves and trees, to ponds and lakes and streams
    I can't continue thriving in this place
    But don't forget
    I'm not dead yet

    BRIDGE

    Four powerful legs, two excellent eyes,
    and a tongue a third-length of my body
    Evolved from an egg, I stand four inches high
    and the flies won't live after they've fought me.
    All the ladies are fond of me, as are the snakes,
    But I'll know if they ever come near.
    I can hop across ponds, I can swim across lakes,
    I can walk across streams without fear.

    CHORUS

    From egg to polliwog, from polliwog to frog
    I'm changing at a record-breaking pace
    From dirt and leaves and trees, to ponds and lakes and streams
    I can't continue thriving in this place
    But don't forget
    I'm not dead yet
  • I am the kisser
    of the princess,
    and the internet
    is with me.

    I'm the ultimate
    seducer of the
    memes community.

    Truth is that
    I bring unity.
    In a world full of differences,
    sick references
    are all that we need to come together, now.

    I bring love!
    Can't love y'all enough now.
    I'm all about the love!

    I can see the darkness
    crawling through our system.

    They want us to hate, hate each other.
    Not on my watch, sir,
    because love is all you'll get from me.

    Truth is that
    I bring unity.
    In a world full of differences,
    sick references
    are all that we need to come together, now.

    I bring love!
    Can't love y'all enough now.
    I'm all about the love!

    We won't fall.
    We are in this together,
    forever.
    And there's nothing you can do about it,
    Nothing you can do about it.
    Nothing you can do about it.

    I bring love!
    Can't love y'all enough now.
    I'm all about the love!

    I bring love!
    Can't love y'all enough now.
    I'm all about the love!

  • "Chorus"
    We gaze across across the light-eons divide
    Questioning our purpose and our place
    The point where past and future intertwine
    The fallen angel and the rising ape
    "Chorus"

    We are the fragment of the universe
    That contemplates itself
    Watching the stars in all their multitudes
    Believing we are separate

    We inscribe our past onto the black
    Connecting lines to mythic tales of yore
    If we could trace our own celestial path
    We’d realize that we are so much more

    "Chorus"

    Bridge

    We hold this fragment of eternity
    For ages we have fought
    To be the momentary rulers of
    A lonely pale blue dot

    Since the days when man first dreamed of flight
    Every step a leap through new frontiers
    Once we saw our legends of those lights
    Now we leave our mark on distant spheres

  • Danny's rocketship is a little bit funny
    A tool box in back to keep it running
    But he swears that's it's gonna
    get him where he's going
    Tonight

    It's an older model and the hull is rusted
    Knocks on the side to show he trust it
    And he swears it flies true
    Though the Nav is busted
    Alright

    So if you look up at the stars
    You might see Danny there
    Looking out the window
    Flying though the air
    With a big smile on his face
    Yeah, he don't have a care
    Cause Danny's rocketship
    Can take him anywhere

    Danny's spacesuit has a patch in the knee
    He tore it on a mission just last week
    But he's not worried
    It's tough and sturdy
    Oh yeah


    He's making his way to a distant planet
    Looking for a spot to make his landing
    Then he'll depart the ship
    And leave his flag standing
    Oh yeah

    So if you look up at the stars
    You might see Danny there
    Looking out the window
    Flying though the air
    With a big smile on his face
    Yeah, he don't have a care

    Verse:

    Up above our heads
    There's a man in the sky

    Our light fades
    As he passes us by

    Pre

    Maybe it was just a silly dream
    Maybe I'm lost in my mind
    Maybe I feel left behind
    Or so it seems...

    Verse

    Up above our heads
    Many worlds to be found
    As far as it gets
    Our perception moves around

    You will lose yourself
    Find the depths of nothingness
    And... if nothing else
    See it's all so meaningless

    Pre

    Maybe it was just a silly dream
    Maybe I'm lost in my mind
    Maybe I feel left behind
    Or so it seems... (x3-ish)

    Chorus

    As the lights fall and the world spins
    I will lose my grip on what is real
    So far away I've come, to play this role
    Nothing else matters now or so it seems...

    Verse

    Up above your head
    Lost in space
    I can feel my life
    As it fades away

    and...

    (goodbye rhyme scheme)
    I don't regret a single moment
    It is all as it should've been
    And so...
    I bid farewell to you...

    Maybe it was just a silly dream
    Maybe I'm lost in my mind
    Maybe I feel left behind

  • When we left home
    So many lifetimes ago
    We could not see
    What it truly meant to be
    Out here on our own

    A fading point of light
    Seen through telescope across the night
    A distant dream, a memory
    Of what it meant to be at home
    But we had to go

    The space between
    Where we're going and where we've been
    And now we'll see
    What it means to begin again

    INTERCOM MESSAGE:

    Attention generation 6 of Argo Interstellar
    In three solar days we arrive at Epsilon Eridani, our new home
    The future of humanity lies with we few aboard this ship
    Godspeed to us all

    Wreathed in fire
    We tear apart the sky
    Clouds part below us
    Our final end in sight
    New horizons
    We'll name them
    It's our birthright
    Now we claim it

    Across the sea, we see them
    The spires made of light
    We are not alone here
    A city burning bright
    Who hears us?
    Who's watching?
    Will they know us?
    Will they know us?

    The space between
    We and them
    What will it mean
    To share a world with them

    By cover of the night
    We see them standing there
    Strange inhuman eyes
    Impassionately stare

    Who knows what they intend
    Whose end they have mind
    We see them moving in
    Don't let this be the end

    The space between
    What is real and what we dream
    Someday we'll find
    What it means to be free again

    This could be
    The end of humanity

  • The Akylonian Space Centre has picked up a strange, coded radio signal from outer space, signs of life, perhaps?

    Starry menagerie
    Measuring
    A digit breadth
    Take three ellipses
    To travel the cosmos

    The message received
    From light years away
    They sent us up
    To seek its origin
    Aboard my sweet Unklys
    For Akylonia

    The Unklys is led by star pilot, General Agee
    A veteran spacepilot, leading a history-making flight, the first past the moons of Akylonia
    Godspeed

    Blasting through
    A secret wormhole
    Heading towards
    The radio source


    Imagining the
    Fruits of victory
    Blazing a trail
    Through the galaxy

    A sight! A sighting,
    History making
    An ivory beacon
    Of impossibility
    Flash the golden spotlight
    Gather their attention
    The aliens sidle
    Up to Unklys quickly

    A clang, and a whoosh
    Connected they must be
    Running to the airlock
    To see what they could be

    Blue-clad, bubble-headed
    Bipedal oddities
    I bare teeth as a greeting
    Their leader grins at me

    Surrounded by the storm
    Death and disorder
    My burning heart
    Tear it open

    The demon stands tall
    Harbinger of death
    The aliens grin with morbid joy
    As we bleed out our lament

    We lay in the deathly beds, dark matters made
    Violent end to interstellar peace, as my vision fades.

    No contact has been made with Unklys, as it continues its trajectory through space...

    [until two days ago, that sound had never been heard on this earth
    it's a report from man's furthest frontier
    the powerful thrust of the aerobe
    sends the whole assembly up through the dense stratosphere
    a layer of heavy air
    50 miles thick
    surrounding the earth]


    From the dust of stars we come
    Intertwined
    We become
    One
    Across the void
    Flying saucer eyes
    Beating like
    Butterflies
    Across the void

    [back through time and space]

    Galvanize
    Resonate
    Deep in space
    Hoo-oo
    Hoo-oo-hoo-oo-oo
    Hoo-oo
    Hoo-oo-hoo-oo-oo

    [but how do we get into space?]
    [the takeoff power will come from a rocket]
    [i can't believe it]
    [a spaceship or something]
    [the initial thrust to get it into the air
    comes from the lowest and biggest of the rockets in the tandem
    the first rocket is then dropped, its fuel exhausted
    the second rocket ignites, and takes over
    the altitude better than 250 miles
    and the second rocket burns out
    but its momentum carries the whole assembly forward
    second rocket spent, the third and last one takes over
    the all the rocket power's gone
    a tremendous force has been built up
    and the satellite is pushed off]

    Across the void

    [on its own at a speed of 18000 mph
    a fixed course circling the earth
    beyond the reach of the earth's gravitational pull
    hundreds of miles in space]

    - You pull me through, you pull me through
    - You cleared my region out of the blue
    - Gravity's strong, gavity's true
    - I am in orbit, now that is new
    - I am in orbit and the barycentre's you

    + I cannot escape your attraction
    + You're pulling me closer
    + You're holding me tighter
    + You're keeping me faster around your force

    + Don't want to depart from your pull
    + I'm drawn to you swiftly
    + I'm brought to you nimbly
    + I'm swept away around your course

    - I am in orbit and the barycentre's you...
  • I don't know what I've yet to see
    A vast beyond, uncertainty
    Above the world's a star parade
    I want to go on a crusade

    Exploring in a rocket ship
    Moving, tumbling, diving, dips
    Departing Planet Earth alone
    So I can witness the unknown

    Departing Earth alone...

    Soar
    Throughout the cosmos

    The universe is so expansive
    Distant view is so attractive
    Safe inside my rocket pod
    I look upon to space with awe

    The milky way a hazy grey
    Without a sign of night or day
    A still and frightening swirl in space
    A sight I see here, face-to-face...

    A frightening swirl in space...

    Soar
    Throughout the cosmos
    Fly
    And see the stars glow

    Piercing through the black and void
    Through a belt of asteroids
    Landing planet in my sight
    Just a twinkle in the night

    I arrive on Planet Mars
    My final waypoint in the stars
    I take a step and lightly tread
    Upon the planet laden red

    The planet laden red...

    Soar
    Throughout the cosmos
    Fly
    And see the stars glow

    I don't know what I've yet to see
    A vast beyond, uncertainty
    Above the world's a star parade
    I want to go on a crusade

    Exploring in a rocket ship
    Moving, tumbling, diving, dips
    Arrived on Planet Mars alone
    So I can witness the unknown

    The universe is so expansive
    Distant view is so attractive
    Safe inside my station pod
    I look upon the sky with awe

    I arrived on Planet Mars
    My final waypoint in the stars
    Upon the planet laden red
    I close my eyes and go to bed

    And as my mission's now complete
    I rest my eyes, and drift to sleep
    High above, the stars will shine
    At last, the space I dreamed to conquer's
    Mine.

    1. Intro Text (ex. Tomb of Horrors)

    Even a bit of daylight
    entering through a crawl space reveals that this is
    an unusual tunnel. Bright, brilliant colors are to be seen everywhere,
    the stones and pigments undimmed by the passage of decades.
    The floor of the corridor is a colorful
    mosaic of stone, with a distinct, winding path of red tiles

    Take me to the land of
    Of imagination
    To a world
    Of my own creation
    Where I can exist in fascination

    Dungeon Master: And so you have come to the end of your quest. Same time next week?
    Dwarf: that was great
    Fred: I think I lost my dice down the couch
  • Today we're playing DnD // so grab your dice and player sheet //
    please gather 'round and take a seat // we're starting soon, so I'll repeat //

    My name is Donald, Dungeonmaster // slinging monsters harder faster //
    Slashing pirates, slaying casters // 'fore we start, let's check the roster //

    A ranger, rager, mage of third? // Anchorite, knight, an archwizard? //
    A bard, a guard, a justicar? // Savant or hunter, tracker, stalker? //

    PHIL

    A rogue.

    BETTY

    A druid.

    TOM

    A cavalier. //

    CARL

    A witch.

    STEVE

    A ninja.

    DONALD

    I guess that's fair. //

    Basic classes, basic races // I'm sure you all will find your places. //

    Now, before we all begin // I'll lay a scene, so buckle in //
    A war-torn town of Droden Place // Destroyed by men from Tayonaise //
    A mayor, wounded, cries for aid // From dying words, a quest is made //
    "Destroy the Tayon King," he cries // "He must be stopped," to which he dies. //
    The king's own rogue had heard the quest // And figured her up to the test //
    She grabbed a hearty crew of five // To make the dark king unalive //
    You gather here at Level One // Where your conquest has just begun //
    You venture forth to stop the king // With nothing but your gear and rings //

    PHIL

    I've got a cloak.

    TOM

    I have a spear. //

    CARL

    I've got a wand.

    DONALD

    Now that's all clear, //

    (2X SPEED)

    You leave from your home with the gear in your pack // And you're fully aware you may never come back //
    Say bye to your mum and then gather around // Then you can roleplay about what you found //

    STEVE

    A friend that I know from the Tayonaise Square // Says should the king die, there's a son there to heir //
    He's just as much wicked and even more cruel // The townsmen would suffer should demon son rule //
    He ran from the village just two years ago // He warns us we'd die should we venture alone //
    There's a handful of guides in a village nearby // We should probably grab one if we'd want to survive //

    BETTY

    I've heard many a thing of the man on the throne // He acts independent but he sure ain't alone //
    There's monks and his knights and some bishops he sends // The castle he sleeps in is what he defends //
    We need to grow stronger on our journey there // If we don't, I can't think of how poorly we'd fare //

    PHIL

    Is this meeting we're in somehow under detection? // Are we being listened to?

    DONALD

    Roll for perception.

    (TALKING NOW)

    PHIL

    I rolled a six.

    DONALD

    Nope. You're totally alone. There is nobody who seems to hear you in this bustling town square.

    PHIL

    Hey, guys. I think we should move somewhere else. I have a bad feeling about this.

    (SONG)

    DONALD

    And with that, a rogue arrow flies out of the air! // It jams in the rogue's stomach, and causes despair! //
    He screams out in pain, the falls down on the floor, // He's bleeding profusely, now *everyone roll*. //

    PHIL

    A twenty.

    BETTY

    A seven.

    TOM

    Four.

    CARL

    Five.

    STEVE

    An eighteen. //

    DONALD

    The mystery archer's nowhere to be seen. //
    Now Phil, you rolled highest, so what will you do? // You failed your perception, and your health is at 2.

    PHIL

    I gather a potion from off of my belt // In hope that its magic might regain my health. //

    STEVE

    On my turn, I move from where the arrow was shot // And a slash in my sword whether he's sat there or not. //
    I rolled a Nat 20 on for my longsword to hit // Did I get him? //

    DONALD

    Yeah, but you hit the wrong kid. //
    You made a good guess, but the man that you stuck // Was just a bystander with god-awful luck. //
    The arrow is magic and wasn't shot here // His location's unknown!

    STEVE

    Gah, that's what I feared. //

    DONALD

    From out of the shadows, another bolt flies // Into Betty's head, and alas, then she dies. //
    A potion or magic might save her from death // But without it, Betty has drawn her last breath //

    (SLOWER)

    CARL

    On my turn, I will sense for spells //

    DONALD

    You sense it - look upon the hills. //
    A blip of man is shining bright // Casting at your rogues and knights.

    CARL

    I cast RAY OF ENFEEBLEMENT //

    (TALKING NOW)

    DONALD

    Wait, that's Strength damage. On the first turn?

    CARL

    He's like 20 feet away, two solid hits and he just dies, right?

    DONALD

    I mean, you're right, but...

    CARL

    RAY OF ENFEEBLEMENT.

    DONALD

    *sigh* Roll a D6.

    CARL

    Six.

    DONALD

    Goddammit.

    (MUSIC RESUMES, STILL SLOWER)

    So, the archer bends over now weak and in pain. // He's can barely inhale with his energy drained. //

    TOM

    I move and I slash at his unmoving brain. // In one move, I'm sure that this man will be slain. //

    DONALD

    You coup a defenseless Mage on a hill. // You reap the rewards of a violent kill. //
    The towns people gasp as they witness the dead // A merciless stranger missing a head. //

    (TALKING NOW)

    Good job, it looked to them that you just killed two random townspeople. Well done.

    (MUSIC GOES DEEPER AND SLOWER)

    (Sound of a door being kicked in.

    BRUTUS

    Sup, nerds?

    I see your dice and painted minis //
    Lame-ass bitches, wimps and ninnies //
    Grab a football, get some head //
    Your social lives are wilting, dead //

    Instead of being cool like me //
    You geeks are playin' DnD //
    I might not grow to be a surgeon //
    But at least I'm not a fuckin' virgin! //

    Throw away your bag of dies //
    And join the land of drunks and highs! //
    I--

    TOM

    Uh, hey Brutus. It's actually pronounced "dice".

    BRUTUS

    I... Uh... Well...

    (SING)

    Your priest is lame!

    (TOM IS INTERJECTING AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH OF BRUTUS' LINES WITH A CORRECTION FOR THE PREVIOUS LINE)

    TOM

    Cleric.

    BRUTUS

    And so's your game! //

    TOM

    No it isn't.

    BRUTUS

    I'll stomp your midget!

    TOM

    Halfling.

    BRUTUS

    And smash your brains! //

    TOM

    I'm wearing armor.

    ((TALKING NOW))

    BRUTUS

    You fucking fags!

    TOM

    Can I hurt him now?

    BETTY

    Please.

    BRUTUS

    You dumbass geek fucks, I'll -

    *muffled fight noises*

    *door closes*

    TOM

    Sorry about that.

    DONALD

    You know what, I think that's enough for today.

    CARL

    I'm gonna go play Magic The Gathering now.

    STEVE

    Wanna play Phantom Vintage Cube on MOTO with me?

    CARL

    Sure.

    DONALD

    Same time next week, then?

    Striking all down
    We're looting and bruiting
    all shall bow down
    as we’re the best

    We’re on our own and sole divine

    It's time to bring the pain
    Fireball, fireball

    Verse 2:

    Bloodied, battered
    Death everywhere
    unable to tell
    The difference who is what and where
    Blood is all the same to us
    Bodies mix and matched

    Going deeper into the dungeon
    Into a world unknown

    Roll initiative
    Roll initiative

  • [verse 1]
    The hours go by slowly as I wait for my shift to end
    My mates, they will be expecting me while gathered round to play
    I'll bring the beers and my hero, you bring the snacks, my friend
    For tonight I do not die, so let us not delay

    [pre-chorus 1]
    Make believe, make believe
    Some things are more real than they seem
    It's where I find release
    Slay the dragon, live the dream


    [verse 2]
    There's dungeons to swipe and treasures to find
    Damsels to save and levels to gain
    Don't even need to throw; my stats are too high
    My bard has three songs praising my name

    [pre-chorus 1]
    Make believe, make believe
    Some things are more real than they seem
    It's where I find release
    Slay the dragon, live the dream


    [chorus A]
    I am Igor
    Slayer of dragons, and maker of widows
    Bandits run away, wives close their windows


    [verse 3]
    My deeds are renowned from Norland to Raudor
    And all know my face across all of Faerûn
    Men swear by my fame, lassies moan my name
    I am Igor, hero most opportune

    [pre-chorus 2]
    Make believe, make believe
    Campaign's almost done and I'm still level eight
    It's where I find release
    "No, I won't wait; guards, open this gate!"


    [chorus A]
    I am Igor
    Slayer of dragons, and maker of widows
    Bandits run away, wives close their windows


    [narration]
    "Igor strides through a blizzard, draped in fur and hefting his axe. He laughs as he charges toward the frost giant who dared poach his people's elk herd."

    "Igor snarls at the latest challenger to his authority over their savage tribe, ready to break his neck with his bare hands as he did to the last six rivals."

    "Frothing at the mouth, Igor slams his helmet into the face of his drow foe, then turns to drive his armored elbow into the gut of another."


    [chorus B]
    A dice in hand but a sword in my world
    This is more than what I've been wishing for
    I'm living the life I was meant to be
    So DND, I'm playing D&D

    [chorus A]
    I am Igor
    Slayer of dragons, and maker of widows
    Bandits run away, wives close their windows
  • Ok guys, the party enters a clearing where moonlight illuminates the fur of a Giant Fey Sable and her suckling pups.

    Awesome, maybe she knows where to find the Song of--

    ShadowMan fells the foul beast with an Improved 10th level Eldritch Blast.

    What? Why?

    It crits for 342 damage.


    ;(chorus)

    He can’t tone it down,

    Face stuck in a permanent frown,

    He won’t let it go,

    Brian won’t let The ShadowMan go unkown.

    (chorus);



    Brain starts by regaling us with stories of,

    The tragic youth of ShadowMan

    The homless orphan was spat upon looked down upon,

    Never had a single friend.


    One day he met the weirdest of wizards,

    Who asked him if wanted to end all of his pain.

    Eagerly he followed him to the darkest of towers,

    Where ShadowMan got his name!


    (chorus)


    I don’t know if this is really the best time, Brian, for this--

    Shadowman learned his hate of Fey in the terrifying deep of The Wizard’s tower.

    Yeah, I know, but this Fey probably knows where to find the Song of--

    Shadowman does not tolerate the Fey simply because it is convenient. Shadowman suffers no Fey to live, ever!


    Brian, he can be cool, just not when he’s playing DnD.
  • Deceit & Disney:

    Music by Monnotorium
    Vocals by Jollybeard99
    Lyrics by scottpontiac

    Verse
    People have the use of creative works
    Once long enough time goes by
    But the suits and ties of the disney jerks
    Made us kiss our liberties goodbye.

    Rights to Hans Christian Andersen have been repealed
    Should you use the little mermaid tale
    With pen based swords and legal shields
    The disney thieves protect their holy grail!

    Refrain:

    And so It goes on and on
    It's always the same refrain
    Disney marauders take 'til it's gone
    Stealing stories from our Public Domain

    Verse:

    The Pocahantas legend was based on true
    Historical events but now
    In the hands of the disney rustling crew
    Her name is owned and use not allowed

    The Story of Mulan was of a woman able
    To pass as her father in army defense
    But make sure your telling of this Chinese fable
    Includes money for your legal expense

    Refrain:

    And so it goes again and again
    Stolen back by the Disney campaign
    Corporate plundering, their lawyers descend
    To lift our stories from the Public Domain

    Chorus:

    Although these many stories once were free
    Against our freedom now the cards are so stacked
    Deceit & Disney now protected by Legal Decree
    The international Mickey Mouse Protection Act!

    Verse:

    The Lion King was snatched
    from Hamlet and Africa
    But Disney nabbed with a load of cash
    The Mali Epic of Sundiata

    It started from their first film brought forth
    That's when all of our hopes would dim
    'Cause Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
    Were pilfered from the Brothers Grimm

    Refrain:

    So over and over the pattern repeats
    At what point do the people regain
    What the Disney company robs and cheats
    They loot our stories from the Public Domain


    Chorus:

    Although these many stories once were free
    Against our freedom now the cards are so stacked
    Deceit & Disney now protected by Legal Decree
    The international Mickey Mouse Protection Act!

    Break (Instrumental)


    Chorus:

    Although these many stories once were free

  • You awake in a tavern to find
    You’re alone with three other guys
    Each with magical powers abound
    An adventure is sure to go down

    I awoke with a start / Be still my heart
    Red and gold robes / I’m dressed like a bard
    Just in my room / Cracking a book
    What is this place? / A tavern by looks

    Short as I might be / Guarantees I’m feisty
    Born a gnome / I’m a chosen rogue
    Banned from my home / For things that I said
    I sit at this bar / Drinks go straight to my head

    Curse my mother / The hateful wench
    I’m a high-born elf / I was born to fence
    I’m even quite good / Or so I think
    I’d rather be anywhere / Than here fetching drinks

    One dressed as a clown / A bratty teenager
    A drunk little man / A crew for the ages
    They will have to do / Led by yours true
    A wand-wielding wizard / a half-orcish brute

    So you’ve all just met in a bar
    Wizard and fighter, the rogue and the bard
    Gear up with weapons and wares
    The gold you have is to share

    Prepare yourselves for combat
    You may battle a wolf or a wombat
    Or something far worse from deep underground
    An adventure is sure to go down

    Devilish dexterity
    Indifferent charisma
    Righteous constitution
    And chaotic wisdom

    How they are aligned
    Is thus defined
    What they do next
    Will sure blow our minds

    To the tailor they go
    For hats and robes
    Then to the blacksmith
    For oh what you know

    Armor and weapons
    Heavy and light
    Be careful kids
    Next comes the fight

    A battle what’s this? / I am just a kid
    I’m armed with nothing / But charisma and wit
    And a silver sax / That I can’t even play
    (Half bar sax break) / That sounded okay

    Daggers, daggers / Seven, eight, ten
    If I miss one or two / It won’t be the end
    I’ll rely on my cunning / I can be quite frugal
    I’ll research on wolves / Does this realm have google?

    A sword, a helmet / A chest plate and breast plate
    A quiver of arrows / a bow and the best cape
    I can’t even arch / I have no aim
    But this gold is mine / To share is a shame

    Oh what a waste / I arranged this quest
    I wanted the best / But I got the rest
    Bumbling fools / Their ringleader I
    A mage with three spells / That won’t harm a fly

    And off to war they go
    The human, the half-orc, the elf and the gnome
    They all should be scared to the bone
    By the end of this story they’ll wish they stayed home

    Traveling through woods
    Searching under rocks
    No lucks or goods
    The clock tick tocks

    No time for practice
    Green as the grass
    They come to a field
    IT’S A GIANT RED ASS

    The battle commences
    The Elf he fences
    He breaks his blade
    In the donkey’s braids

    The wizard cast spells
    They do not do well
    So he grabs an axe
    And the bard plays sax

    The orc says charge
    Donkey stomps bard
    Daggers bounce back
    The gnome’s hit with the axe

    They all lay battered
    Hit points at zero
    With fun none mattered
    But none was a hero
  • I come from a village with no fame
    I used to repair wooden chairs
    But adventure had started calling my name
    Pulling harder and harder on my every hair

    I went away on the back of my horse
    My name bearing no fame or gold
    I met a wizard, guided by some force
    He said I had a destiny foretold

    Rolled seven in Strength, no better in Dex
    Bound to fail all of my checks
    A bit of luck with my Constitution
    An education to always come up with a solution

    Rolled seven in Strength, no better in Dex
    Bound to fail all of my checks
    A bit of luck with my Constitution
    An education to always come up with a solution

    I crawled in the mud, vermin and leeches
    Met some goblins lead by an orc
    They stole my sword, my gold and my breeches
    I'm still bearing the mark of his pitchfork

    My short adventure had come to its end
    stripped down of all my desire to roam
    For wounds inflicted to my pride to mend
    Repairing wooden chairs feels more and more like home

    Rolled seven in Strength, no better in Dex
    Bound to fail all of my checks
    A bit of luck with my Constitution
    An education to always come up with a solution

    Rolled seven in Strength, no better in Dex
    Bound to fail all of my checks
    And fail I did but home I found
    And fail I did but home I found

    There’s no will save against the truth I’m droppin

    About to spit some elder lore
    Been rockin this game since 74

    My character sheet’s a checklist of reckless
    Delving dungeons, eating dragons for breakfast
    Inventory stacked and my stats are maxed
    Hit points drop to zero when I attack


    Chorus:
    This is how I roll
    Natural 20 and I’m in control
    Pen and paper are my sword and shield
    Think it’s a game? No, this is DnD

    Verse 2:

    I got a paladin in the streets
    Barbarian in the sheets
    I’m a lover and a fighter
    I’m all about the bonus feats

    I see you hating with no attack rating
    Every diss a critical miss against my armor class
    I’ve conquered worlds that others fear to tread
    Command the elements and raise the dead

    Chorus
  • Used to think it was natural, playing a role
    I thought that I had mastered the game
    But from the moment you came along, and caged my soul
    The sight of you made me forget my name

    Through the party I saw you dancing, girl
    I spotted and checked your shape
    And when the light all around your head started to swirl
    You made me feel as though I were saved

    The thought of you re-buffing me
    Almost cost me the opportunity
    I was blinded, but I had to see
    It was critical to move

    Like magic, I'm petrified alive for you
    Like magic, I'm tripping up across the room
    A round with you and I knew I would never be the same
    And like magic, you saw me too


    If I wanted a passable dance floor chat
    I'd be putting my charm to the test
    Might need another class in persuasion, stat
    Because I couldn't get my heart to rest

    I initiated it, with no success
    Couldn't bear to bug you a moment less
    You were free to speak to
    But I still could not get it off my chest

    Like magic, I'm petrified alive for you
    Like magic, I'm tripping up across the room
    A round with you and I knew I would never be the same
    And like magic, you saw me too


    You were a trap that I failed to detect
    But I didn't mind falling in
    You got me stunned
    Stunned like a statue, my girl in gold
    You caught me cold

    Like magic, I'm petrified alive for you
    Like magic, I'm tripping up across the room
    A round with you and I knew I would never be the same
    And like magic, you saw me too
  • Verse 1
    Youre back again for more
    Fill your sails with my confessions
    Leave me stranded on the shore

    My friends say I'm a fool
    And lately I hear ringing
    From the bells upon my shoes

    Chorus
    I'll play my part
    Heal your broken wing
    Cut the bandage from my heart
    And watch you fly and then
    Leave me a new scar
    Over and over and over again

    Verse 2
    I'm a sucker for the pain
    Soak up your mixed up signals
    A puppet hugging rain

    Tie hope around my strings
    Your midnight red wine kisses
    That don't mean anything

    Chorus
    I'll play my part
    Heal your broken wing
    Cut the bandage from my heart
    And watch you fly and then
    Leave me a new scar
    Over and over and over again

    Verse 3
    You chewed me to the bone
    Devoured my obsessions
    Til what I felt was gone

    Now I'm just another guy
    Who you'll say just used you up
    You can paint me in that light

    Chorus
    I'll play my part
    Heal my broken wing
    Sew stitches in my heart
    Watch me fly away and then
    I can be your scar
    Over and over and over again
  • Ekman Island

    Half a world away, a vast expanse awaits.
    Out of sight and out mind, it's the perfect place to keep our discarded history.
    It's easier to leave it here than to bury or burn.

    From a distance, it glitters in the sun,
    but on closer inspection, it's just the same things we saw today... yesterday... and the

    day before.
    Like the ground stripped of trees and the stinging haze in the air,
    it's yet another piece of evidence showing our sickening disregard for what we have, and

    what we no longer want.

    Anything that can will end up here, drawn in like a magnet and arranging itself into a

    swirling mass.
    Now that we know, do we take it back? Or will it return on it's own? And which option is

    worse?
    Until one of these happens, it remains suspended in this watery purgatory, growing like a

    tumor.

    The space between us all might feel so empty,
    But it's not.
    We are throwing our footprints over our shoulder.

    Now half a world away, this vast expanse remains.
    Gathering, heaving, sinking, and repeating.
    But that's not my problem.

    The space between us all might feel so empty,
    But it's not.
    We are throwing our footprints over our shoulder.
    Ekman Island is under construction, but nobody wants to come

    I won’t run away
    I won’t turn around

    But I’d be better off if i just left

    Hear me now
    Here me clear
    Hear me now
    I don’t care
    What you see in the mirrors


    Hear voice
    Catch on the phone
    All I want
    Is to let you know

    That the night’s long

    I'll be there
    I'll never leave your side

  • Verse 1:
    Nothing left to spare
    I just carry a boy
    with all that I need
    and here are my feet

    Chorus:
    Who needs to wear
    A hollow mask
    To hide your skin
    To be aware
    Who needs to hide the eyes
    That see

    Verse 2:
    I need no love, I need no hate
    I'd rather not foresee our fate
    You're all I've got, among the crowds
    I'll let you hide
    I'll turn around

    Pre-Chorus:
    You'll disappear from me

    Chorus

    Verse 3:
    I'll take a chance, ask for a dance
    You'll spin away through the night
    Though my reach is long, your footsteps are stronger
    And soon you'll be out of sight

    End:
    The world's gone, I'll embrace the dawn light
  • Simple Layers

    [chorus]
    I find myself wishing this were as simple
    As when we first met
    But the layers of lies go deeper and deeper
    Than those of hate and regret

    [verse 1a]
    I never intended for you to know
    Never had planned for you to find out
    Had always pretended in life, for show
    but pray tell your thinking out loud

    [Talking Break]
    I'm amused
    by the fact
    that I can still surprise you

    You're bemused
    by this act
    of revelation

    [chorus]
    I find myself wishing this were as simple
    As when we first met
    But the layers of lies go deeper and deeper
    Than those of hate and regret

    [verse 2a]
    I never intended to keep this from you
    But compassion is something that we lack
    It feels like we're ending, or that we'll renew
    our roles; if you could, would you take it back?

    [chorus]
    I find myself wishing this were as simple
    As when we first met
    But the layers of lies go deeper and deeper
    Than those of hate and regret

  • Looking around in my life
    Buried in belongings
    Surrounded by possessions and strife
    I wanna go back to the start
    Another ding, another buzz
    Attention stolen by the thief in my pocket
    Why can’t we get away

    What happened to playgrounds and laughter
    Where have we gone, now chained to our things
    Everywhere we are, are we connected
    Tethered to shiny objects demanding our attention

    The words are too strong, so we go to bars
    The bars aren’t strong enough, so we start wars
    Wars with others, and wars with ourselves
    A life in conflict is no life at all

    Bank account running dry
    House overfilled
    Searching for satisfaction all my life
    Never finding
    Like a child with no impulse control
    Seeking gratification around every corner
    Why can’t we stop
  • Monica, you make me more alive
    It’s all I want, to get you by my side
    No one else can make me fly so high
    If you let me prove myself I’ll never make you cry

    Maybe you don’t feel the same way
    All those other guys can lead you astray
    Let’s not fret I’ll give a little leeway, these
    Injuries won’t matter on our wedding day

    Suddenly you get up and you walk away
    Maybe I’m too beta to get you to stay

    Left without a single shred of dignity
    Yeah
    With all these objects, I can't process.
    These emotions on my mind.
    So i'll just give back everything that I have.. tonight.

    I don't want to feel alone,
    I don't want to feel alone, so I gotta decide.

    Is it worth it? Is it worth it?
    Are possessions just taking up my life?
    Tryna fix it, yeah I'll try to fix it..
    So now it's time to say goodbye.
    Goodbye
    Goodbye to you.

    Now I can't find a single thing.. oh I..
    Nothing but my body and my sanity..
    Yeah
    Tried to figure out.. What makes me happy now..
    But I still can't feel a thing.
    So i'll just.. give back.. everything that I have tonight.
    So i'll just.. give back.. everything that I have tonight.
  • It was a minor inconvinience
    Speaking in the loosest sense
    To be born and exist
    God's will is a cease and desist
    Willful ignorance of the law is a crime
    But pray to Jesus, and mercy's mine
    What would you have me do now?
    Live, all weak and ready to bow?
    Or stand tall as the chair below kicks in
    What's lost needs no fixin
    Thus better lost than broken and sent for repair
    Greasing the gullotine, but acting like Voltaire
    Talking about action while we stop and stare
    A shrink's just paying bills and feeding on despair

    Bibere venenum in auro

    Hear me father, heed thy ignorant son
    It's dark but the day just begun
    The rope around my neck tightens
    The rope around my heart lightens

    Hear me father, hear thy ignorant son
    It's dark but the day just begun
    Sand is turning, and we shall be one
    Bid farewell to thy ignorant son.
  • Rungs

    Read

    If pride truly came before the fall then I'd say that gravity isn't doing it's job
    The giants beating their chest remain erect despite the swell within them
    Using socialism like it's a bad word while irony drips from their what would Jesus do bracelets
    "I earned this" they scream and that's nothing I would take from them
    But what took you two steps takes others a million miles so acknowledge there's a difference
    For a tree to grow, it requires nitrogen and sun showers
    The mighty oaks stand and their shade makes sure no light reaches the bottom
    Then they whisper to the foliage below, "you're not trying hard enough"
    If I ever become an oak, I want my branches to spread wide and douse the shadows with life

    Chorus
    I can feel the water rising
    As I stand upon this crumbling step
    My fingertips can't reach the next one
    I'm hoping that it falls away

    Read
    If it's class warfare to ask for half a chance then I'm sharpening my tongue
    My pockets are too shallow to buy the depth I need in a representative
    They build promises on the middle class then rest their knees in our backs make sure nothing trickles down
    These kids we tell them they have a chance but if you're poor you miss the mark
    I guess you should've checked your schedule because you're in the wrong class
    And I know I know, your cousins brothers sister in law yeah she came from nothing
    But the odds are the same as an anorexic lottery ticket, they're getting slimmer every day
    So next time you're pissed off about all these poor wanting a hand out
    Count the rungs on that ladder you climbed and realize you started at the top

    Chorus
    I can feel the water rising
    As I stand upon this crumbling step
    My fingertips can't reach the next one
    I'm hoping that it falls away

    Weird guitar solo

    Chorus
    I can feel the water rising
    As I stand upon this crumbling step
    My fingertips can't reach the next one
    I'm hoping that it falls away
  • My downstairs neighbor is a walrus
    His apartment always smells like fish
    He thinks John Lennon wrote songs about him
    Somebody should tell him that he was born after 1967

    The business across the street is run by giraffes
    They specialize in commercial real estate
    Their office is above an old Blockbuster
    I don't know how they get inside

    I hired an elephant to walk my dog on the weekends
    She's a lovely lady, but I think she scares my Bichon Frise
    She weighs 12,000 pounds
    I'd be scared too if I was only 9 inches tall

    A wolf lives three doors down to the left
    He has very aggressive male pattern baldness
    I feel for him because I also have that problem
    I do not think Rogaine will work very well

    The orthopaedic surgeon at the hospital is a vixen
    Everybody says she's bangin’, but I am not into foxes
    I also do not trust her to perform surgery
    She doesn't have thumbs

    There is an eagle who lives somewhere above my apartment
    He likes to listen to Bach's Toccata and Fugue
    He even tried to play it on violin for his wife
    Now it sounds like she wants a divorce

    I just discovered this new band and they call themselves Flock of Seagulls
    No, not the one from the 1980’s, this one’s new, and they’re legit
    I didn’t think wings would be conducive to playing the guitar
    I’m still not sure how it works but they seem to manage just fine

    I’ve heard that they just signed a record deal with Def Jam
    Or maybe it was Columbia, or maybe it was Sony
    I can’t recall the specifics, but trust me, they’re going to make it big
    They’ve got these stupid haircuts but I’m sure nobody will remember

    A king crab delivers my mail
    I do not recognize his sovereign rule
    He always leaves my packages on the stoop
    I am surprised nothing has been lost

    The owner of the building is a mouse
    I think her family might live behind my stove
    I once tried to pay her in baked goods
    If you give a mouse a cookie, she will raise your rent

    I live in a town where everything is strange
    And nobody else seems to realize
    Maybe I should find a good therapist
    Or maybe I just live in Animal Crossing
  • From a single bone, and marrow
    Hello there my friend, been so long
    I cooked all the cloaks and clouds
    I been waiting...

    We can go slow and steady
    as our crashing worlds make fire
    I know you’re made of wood
    and I am ruble of...
    but we won’t turn our minds
    can tell
    I know you’re not alone as I am
    and the dancing rivers lead me
    far away from you
    Please just hold my hand, one last time
    there is holding time, still
    I promise only once
    I won’t break you

    All I ask for us is time
    like when I held you in my (hands)
    that faint and fateful night with your scent
    there I tasted your name

    with a (single) piece of bone and marrow
    I craved a grave for you and me
    cause I would rather not be alone in the end
    even if the bitter breaks my tongue sometimes
    I want you

    Go there, meet the Sun, I wish that
    one step per night, we'll walk through
    the dunes, cats and the myth
    and if perchance the untainted card
    will tell me you do love me
    I won’t believe at all this time
    I’ll let you and my numbers fly
    (I) won’t spoil you

    From a single piece of bone, and marrow
    I’ll warm you (I'll cook you)
  • [VERSE 1]
    I find myself in here entrapped
    I live my life in loops
    I wonder where or when I'll know
    The reason for this wind

    Discrepancies, discrepancies
    Where did my whole life go?
    Discrepant inconsistencies
    Our timing is amiss

    Our silly tongues, our silly cants
    They use these spacial terms
    These terms which are inadequate
    For our temporal lives

    And thus we wait, and thus we wait
    For times to change again
    I'll see you when us two were born
    Relive our timelines twice

    [CHORUS]
    Where have all the
    streams of time
    carried their waters?

    I'd like this time
    To bathe, to swim
    In their seas

    Like weird tides
    We rise and fall

    Time is but a distance covered
    Time is but a river crossed

    [VERSE 2]
    The clocks are ticking backwards now
    You live your life in loops
    This noose is tight around your neck
    But you can breathe just fine

    I'll see you when us two will die
    The future has been lived
    I cannot wait for time at all
    But time still waits for me

    [CHORUS]
    Where have all the
    streams of time
    poured out all their waters?

    I'd like to take
    What time I've left
    To drown inside their seas

    As these weird tides
    Rise and fall
    We realise
    We've been here before

    Time is but a distance covered
    Time is but a river crossed
    Time is but this road we've travelled
    Yet time's all that and more

    [VERSE 3]
    We find ourselves in here entrapped
    This cycle's neverending
    Our timelines now do coincide
    And that is never changing

    Discrepancies, discrepancies
    This time is an illusion
    And thus we wait, we count the days
    Till we can start again

    and then you zoom out
    Won't you kiss me
    lovely lips in the desert

    I am so far away
    Distant lonely sand

    Dry to the touch
    Warm to the heart
    Around us is chaos
    But you are so calming

    How long can you be there
    before hate and war cover you up
    Will love conquer all or will death come first

    Battles rage around you

  • Starlings rose on a planet far
    With great steel
    Above them swooped the Mechagons
    Untouchable masters

    Strength along could not kill them
    The famine grew
    They needed weapons, but what kind?
    Something unheard of

    So away three were smuggled
    To the planet of Kesa
    Where the fae were known to live
    With the technology
    Of masterful magicka

    To gain it would not be easy
    And to fail would not be acceptable
    But to die would be forgivable

    Rise, Starlings, steel to the sky
    (Wave your swords, fight your fate)
    Bring them down from the cosmos
    (Strike them thrice, take their joy)
    Ride to the heavens and rain victory
    (Make them pay, save your spirits)
    A battlecry of freedom

    Three trials of S’Kaling were owed
    Three to spill blood
    One with a sword, a terrible slice
    The creature slain

    One with an arrow, true to the bone
    Proven worth
    And one spoke peace, wounded himself
    Third blood fulfilled

    Gifts from the Kesa they won
    A ship for battle
    Arrows photonic, swords of light
    And armor unseen

    Their magick seemed unbeatable
    And to fail seemed impossible
    Now to die seemed unforgivable

    Rise, Starlings, steel to the sky
    (Wave your swords, fight your fate)
    Bring them down from the cosmos
    (Strike them thrice, take their joy)
    Ride to the heavens and rain victory
    (Make them pay, save your spirits)

  • Verse 1

    From every station the same propaganda blares
    Elevator anthems written in the key of gray
    Thought-terminating jingles rhyming in 4:4
    Every verse to the same beat
    Every lyric pre-approved

    They say it’s all just to protect us from ourselves
    That’s what the council passed the law to keep us safe
    Now everything sounds so familiar and so stale
    No surprises, no upsets
    All proceeding just as planned

    Chorus

    Dreaming of a world
    Where you can’t lock-step in 7/8
    Let’s unlock this cage in our own key
    And in our own rhythm we can run

    Verse 2

    From every billboard the same slogans always rhyme
    Every show telling you precisely when to laugh
    No more more confusion over what what to hear and see
    Every choice already made
    By those who know what’s best for you

    But what if there’s another way to live your life
    Combining pieces in new ways unseen before
    At any tempo about anything we want
    Not tied up in the same 4 chords
    There’s no end to what we’ll make
  • Attention! I am a straight razor cold against your skin
    The urge to jump from the ledge of a 50 story building
    I am your call to action, I am your fear
    The sand on your tongue when she's too beautiful to approach
    The voice that tells you that settling is better than being lonely
    You loath me but I push you, the check to the balance of your life
    I own you, force you out of bed with the spectre of poverty and uselessness
    So hate me for the shots you don't take, love me for everything you have

    I put the bullet in the chamber at Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora, Orlando, Vegas
    I can make some see differences in others as acid bubbles on their skin
    Find the indignant beating their chest, you'll find my scent like a secret cigarette
    I'm chloroform for your emotions cause showing who you really are scares you the most
    Oh but when you overcome my devices, it is your sweetest victory
    Palm sweat is my last defense and if it's there you know the battle is over
    I am your greatest protector and your strongest weakness
    I am a straight razor

    There's nothing more far out than the space in my head.
    The days rushing past, my time ticking forward,
    Unbroken, reminding of the impending end,
    That all must face endlessly, eventually.

    Trying to stop, to give myself time, to think,
    Instinctively, I'm giving in, let alone exceeding
    My mind is failing, my limbs are trembling
    The time is right but the end is nigh

    If this is the life I've subscribed to
    I'll be needing a window to escape
    If this is all that I've ever hoped for
    Then it's about time I met my end
    Then it's about time I met my end

    It's not my mind's ever-expanding darkness
    nor my own self-inflicted isolation
    that scares me to death

    It's not the familial and familiar faces
    that still remain indecipherably
    alien, not unlike mine

    It's not the endless clichés I try to rid
    my hand of for describing my
    perpetual confusion

    It's what I've become, what I have done
    What I will be and what I will do
    that scares me to death

    Needing the end only drives it away as I swing,
    Swing on the swings of my teetering life, leading,
    From nothing to nothingness, alone but alive,
    Facing it endlessly, endlessly, eventually.

    Please, no, more, I want, out, let, me, go

    There's nothing
    More far out
    Than the space
    In my head
  • As I round the corner, down the alley. A lingering smell of cigarette smoke sits above the petrichor. The light of a street lamp reflected in the puddles at my feet.

    Three figures at a doorway, a woman with short hair holds the attention of two men. Her gaze commanding, her shoulders hang relaxed. The sound of high hats and bass punctuate her waning attention.

    The muffled beat billows on as listlessly as the smoke from her cigarette.

    I pass them, exchanging a glance as I enter the bar. My senses peaked, heightened. Spilt drinks and mildew. A crash of cymbals.

    The muffled beat billows on as listlessly as the smoke from her cigarette.
  • This year could leave us broken
    Or we could be the light
    Maybe we are forgiven
    For what we've done tonight

    I've lived the long december
    And I've seen the long goodbye...to sorrow
    We live these days to live them
    But I'm sad as I have tried
    To forget some of the memories
    But now it's time to fight and
    I will be fine fine fine and
    This just might be our time
    And we could fight fight fight fight

    Fight fight fight
    Fight fight fight
    Fight fight fight
    Fight fight fight

    Ooooo oooo
    Ooooo oooo
    Ooooo oooo

    Look up towards the sun
    And let the warmth set it until it warms you up again
    Let's start this life up anew
    Just you and me
    As a start and once again
    We'll build up from this pyre
    and be happy now and then

    and I will be fine fine fine
    I'll be fine fine fine
    I'll be fine fine fine
    We'll be fine fine fine
    We'll be fine fine fine
    We'll be fine fine fine
    We'll be fine fine fine
  • I walk into my old room
    and put on a faded VHS
    I can almost make out something
    but mostly it's a mess

    This old cartridge has stayed behind
    in a time that time forgot
    I could easily do the same
    but I don't know if I want to or not

    I almost can not comprehend
    how things got the way they are
    Time flowing in events
    both good, bad and bizarre

    The journey started out so good
    The best it had ever been
    But no matter how hard I tried,
    The shadows still forced themselves in

    But I hope to see a new dawn
    on the horizon far away
    If I can just keep my head above the water
    for just one more day
    Just one more day...
  • [verse]
    All this digging, was it worth the dirt?
    Now I'm hitting the clay
    There's no buried treasure, well not any more
    There's no light shining on me

    So I'm picking up snakes to lift the game
    I'm biting back and taking a leap
    Breaking it down to build it up better
    There's something here to save

    [Chorus]
    A belly full of stones and the taste of sweet fruit.
    It could have been so easy.
    Black lines to silence oblivious mouths
    It could have been so easy.

    [verse 2]
    Do what you like and make it work
    Take comfort in comfortable places
    Or do what you can, and make it better
    Be content with what's to come

    A quick wave, then off again
    Now keep your eyes on the road
    The tax man is lurking
    and you'll know what to do

    [Chorus 2]
    A patch on the pocket and feet off the ground.
    It could have been so easy.
    Now the heat of the day rushes up to the glass
    It could have been so easy.

    [Bridge]
    I will make more mistakes
    I will get it wrong again
    I will still be the fool
    Just to make it better

    [Chorus 3]
    Just to make it better
    It could have been so easy.
    It could have been so easy.
  • Never thought it would get worse
    Like passing New Years lifts a curse
    It seems before, our biggest war
    Was fought against a hearse

    And now it’s us against the world
    Like a hundred horse-size ducks
    We are overpowered
    And it’s too late to give a fuck

    Making enemies of friends
    Turned a corner into a dead end
    All our thoughts, and all our prayers
    Can never put us together again

    Take me, and break me into pieces
    Scatter me into the wind and seas
    Take me, and break me into pieces
    Scatter me to the wind and seas

    And now it’s us against the world
    A squadron diving for the trench
    We are overpowered
    And it’s too late to give a shit

    All this mess
    Is all we made
    Will we recover
    From the hurricane
    Home distressed
    Waiting to be saved
    A million voices lift
    And fall away

    And now it’s us against the world
    When the world has gone to hell
    We are overpowered
    And we must rebuild ourselves
  • Two thousand sixteen was truly fucking evil
    If that year was the matrix
    Then you're the shitty sequel
    Yeah if we're talking star wars
    Twenty seventeens the prequel
    Here's the reason for my hatred, 58 in Vegas
    Charlottesville was a bitter pill, I can't fucking take it
    London bridge is falling down, somebody save the lady
    Women feeling disrepected, finally make a statement
    But you're the one that fucked us all, vulnerable and naked
    Like auditioning with Weinstein, I'm left feeling vacant
    But I'll rise from your ashes, hear these words I'm saying
    If I had the Deloreon, I'd go back and skip to eighteen
    Wipe out the hate the death and anything degrading
    Don't get it twisted though, you were only passing through
    Dealing with your aftermath like scraping gum from a shoe
    Two thousand seventeen can die and go to hell
    Did you really have to take Cornell?
    Then your bullshit continued
    And we lost Chester as well
    Tom Petty I wasn't ready, damn it you fail
    Hurricanes brought the rain, flood and devastation
    Turned out the sun a minute just to get some relaxation
    Then we're back to the drama coming in from other nations
    Russia pulling the strings using their powers of persuasion
    North Korea and their leader that batshit crazy little asian
    Our internet rights getting bought and paid by corporations
    Women stepping forward showing scars of molestations
    My brothers losing pace,guess you can call it race relations
    I'm usually a calm man but I admit to losing patience
    So I was glad to see your 365 end, so we can start anew
    But if last year was a movement, you can hashtag me too

    Nothing lost, nothing gained
    Healing only comes with pain
    Grit my teeth, start again
    Sun shines brightest after rain
  • Good Tidings and Riddance, Twenty Seventeen
    ------------------

    VERSE 1
    Net Neutrality was taken away
    your site you will soon have to pay
    Kathy Griffin wished Donald Trump dead
    Gave up her job, held a bloody head
    Harvey Weinstein and sex assault
    Men of power fell; but it was all their fault.
    A lousy time the past year has been
    Good tidings and riddance, Twenty Seventeen
    Watch the ball drop ; it was all a bad dream
    Good tidings and riddance, Twenty Seventeen

    VERSE 2
    But some things w're glad, that we didn't miss
    A time in our lives, see a total exclipse
    Danica Roem broke ground with human liberty
    A transgender person's election victory
    Serena 35, can she win again? Maybe...
    Most title wins ever - and carrying a baby!
    So this past year, some good things we've seen
    Good riddance but tidings to Twenty Seventeen
    The ups and downs were so extreme
    Good riddance but tidings to Twenty Seventeen

    CHORUS
    Is this all there is?
    And what does it all mean?
    What are we supposed to
    To get over Twenty Seventeen?
    Do we go out and make it happen?
    Or do we stay home and scream?
    How do we make the changes
    We need for Twenty Eighteen

    BRIDGE
    Do we go out and make it happen?
    Or do we stay home and scream?
    How do we make the changes
    We need for Twenty Eighteen?

    VERSE 3
    King Jong Un's going out of his mind
    The US president isn't that far behind
    Starvation in Africa, horrible impacts
    Around the world are still more terror attacks
    Ransomware locks out all you have
    Hurricane Harvey floods out its Texas path
    To one of the worst years we've ever seen
    Good tidings and riddance, Twenty Seventeen
    Sometimes the truth is worse than it seems
    Good tidings and riddance, Twenty Seventeen
    Sometimes the truth is worse than it seems
    Good tidings and riddance, Twenty Seventeen

    CHORUS
    Is this all there is?
    And what does it all mean?
    What are we supposed to

    VERSE 4
    But the luxury labels stopped using real fur
    A human chain saved drowners - heroes they were
    Jon Smith saved 30 at the Las Vegas shooting
    Ice Bucket Challenge - a cure for ALS may be brewing
    A space collision proves out some new science notions
    We can save the Great Barrier reef in the ocean
    New drugs make the fight against Aids a game changer
    The snow leopard cat is no longer endangered
    A new insecticide works and won't kill the bees
    In the rainforest, a plan to replant the trees
    Jackie Robinson finally gets his own museum
    Blessings and tidings in Twenty Seventeen
    Mankind can pull together, we're on the same team
    We can do better in Twenty Eighteen
    Sometimes the truth is worse than it seems
    Good tidings and riddance, Twenty Seventeen

    BRIDGE
    So we're here at the crossroad
    Did we run out of steam?
    Can we carry the load
    Into Twenty Eighteen?
    How do we matter?
    Not just cogs in the big machine
    Beat up, kicked and battered
    We survived Twenty Seventeen
    We'll be happier and we'll be sadder
    When we go into Twenty Eighteen

    CHORUS
    Is this all there is?
    And what does it all mean?
    What are we supposed to
    To get over Twenty Seventeen?
    Do we go out and make it happen?
    Or do we stay home and scream?
    How do we make the changes
    We need for Twenty Eighteen
    Is this all there is?
    And what does it all mean?
    What are we supposed to
    To get over Twenty Seventeen?
    Do we go out and make it happen?
    Or do we stay home and scream?
    How do we make the changes
    We need for Twenty Eighteen

  • Minutes spent and another minute gone by
    All we do is sigh
    The sands of time overturn
    The future is ours to defy

    Days spent, days gone by
    I miss them, not gonna lie
    One moment ago I had the world in my palm
    And now I'm high and dry

    Always I've known
    This time I'm alone
    I try to be
    A silent storm

    All I had before was time
    And now even that is gone
    I try to be
    A silent storm

    Weeks spent, weeks gone by
    Trying to live while we deny
    So close I'm to giving up
    But I can't stop to try

    A year spent, a year gone by
    Another year before we die
    Time runs, oh it fucking sprints
    Nobody cares to ask why

    Always I've known
    This time I'm alone
    I try to be
    A silent storm

    All I had before was time
    And now even that is gone
    I try to be
    A silent storm

  • It's a
    Small world
    No one
    Gets you

    When you
    Disappear
    They won't
    Come near

    Take it, pack it away
    Never let it see the sun
    Bag it all up, throw it away
    Bury truth and you can run

    Seal it, stow it away
    Never let it see the sun
    Dig a place down, toss it away
    Bury truth and you can run

    Let's not speak of this again
    My dear dark friend, your demons will find you
    Let's not speak ever again
    We'll never pretend, to share if you want to

    Alone

  • So you want to know — where I have been?
    Whatever I've heard — and what I have seen?
    All that I'll relay — it is truthful indeed
    If you want to know — buy me a cup of mead

    Gather 'round my bench — I shall speak to you plain
    For this story's strange — and I won't sing it again
    Gather 'round my bench — you must pay close attention
    For this story's strange — and I suck at translation:

    I have travelled far and wide
    Witnessed things I swear are true
    Weaving stories into songs
    Shaping them to something new

    Sailed for northern shores — it had cost me my shirt
    Man against the stream — I had bones in my nose
    Wrecked but then salvaged — Housed in a nest of trolls
    Midst the butter's eye — wherever the wind blows

    I have travelled far and wide
    Witnessed things I swear are true
    Weaving stories into songs
    Shaping them to something new

    The trolls bid farewell — with great words of wisdom:
    "Don't stand with your beard — within the mailing box"
    I wrote it behind — my very own ear
    And now there's a stain — on my pillow, I fear

    I have travelled far and wide
    Witnessed things I swear are true
    Weaving stories into songs
    Shaping them to something new

    We both fell into the Seine of love together
    We both wanted to be lovers for forever
    What we found wasn’t like any other
    Yet in the end we wanted nothing but to sever


    Chorus:
    Into one ear out the other
    Communication? Don’t even bother
    I don’t know what you’re saying
    I guess, it’s lost in translation

    Disagree with one another
    Find a solution? Don’t even bother
    I can’t hear what you’re saying
    I guess, it’s lost in translation


    Days and nights and weeks and years went by
    Suddenly I was the bad guy
    Screams and shouts and feuds and fights again
    It was coming to a bad end

    We tried to talk it out
    We tried to stop the drought
    But after all the bickering
    There was no choice
    We cut it off

    It was my fault, it was hers
    It was our fault, it was theirs
    We were both in denial
    There was no number to dial

    What a shameful loss it came to
    Couldn't figure out what to do
    Talk it out, talk it out
    Scream and shout, scream and shout


    [Chorus]
    Into one ear out the other
    Communication? Don’t even bother
    I don’t know what you’re saying
    I guess, It’s lost in translation

    Disagree with one another
    Find a solution? Don’t even bother
    I can’t hear what you’re saying
    I guess, it’s lost in translation
  • Dreaming of a World

    1. Heart of the City

    Can't sleep,
    Traveling can't rest
    Tortured need to confess
    Where can I sleep
    Can't I just ever be
    I dream of Ranier
    Breathe Pacific air

    Coffee
    Such cool music, full energy
    Plush wet and evergreen,
    City half forest,
    the sunbreaks are blessed
    But I'm a guest......

    ^^ (translation - sunbreaks are Seattle-speak for when the clouds finally part for a short while to let the sun through)

    2. Aloha Beach

    Toss and dream
    Of Hawaii
    Mauna Kea
    I'm free and on the beach
    Haole
    I'm now at peace
    but this will cease
    a teaser
    I see that I'll never be
    at leisure......

    ^^ (translation - Mauna Kea, "White Mountain" is the tallest peak in Hawaii.
    Haole is Fawaiian for "white man stranger").

    3. Land of the Rising Sun

    Less conscious now than I've ever been
    Issun saki wa yami
    Don't know what time zone I'm in
    Nana korobi ya oki
    No verbal cues, language - don't know how
    Table manners - what do I do
    Take off my shoes and give a bow
    Rakka eda ni kaerazu

    ^^(Translation - Issun saki wa yami - It is dark one inch ahead of you
    Nana korobi ya oki - Fall down 7 times, get up 8
    Rakka eda ni kaerazu - The fallen blossom returns not to the bough)

    4. Naija Motherland

    I came to and forgot my name
    Lost in a forest rain
    Rolling stone, na person push am now
    Started dancing to dundun drums
    Wanna stay till my time comes
    Dey show you pepper, soup from am
    Newspaper na tomorrow Suya wrap
    You no need cutlery to chop slap
    Tonight we'll eat akara and lyan!
    Na from clap dance do dey start
    I have to leave and it breaks my heart
    Now we say goobye, odabo, adieu
    Chicken wey run way still in soup.....

    (Translation - [from actual Nigerian Pidgin] - Rolling stone, na person push am now - There's always a reason for something)
    Dey show you pepper, soup from am - Make something good out of something bad
    Newspaper na tomorrow Suya wrap - Here today, gone tomorrow
    You no need cutlery to chop slap - You don’t need help for this
    Akara and lyan- Fried bean meatballs and yams
    Na from clap dance do dey start - From small things, come big things
    Odabo, adieu - Goodbye, Goodbye
    Chicken wey run way still in soup - You can't escape your destiny)

    5. Land of the Setting Sun

    Abrí los ojos
    Hesperian building - i go in
    A woman, my Spanish Rose
    With her it ends and begins

    (Translation - Abrí los ojos - I opened my eyes)

  • Old old dogs and tricks.
    Catched in the thick.
    An endless game of boxes.
    Diamond is not blocked.
    Putting is difficult.
    Feeling in the buffet.

    I'm losing, I'm not. I did not find out.
    No-one can see what's inside me.
    Why are you leaving? No one sees me.
    I can not be what I need.

    Harry Johnson and the Jones.
    Large watermelon for me and you.
    Put the knife in the beef hash.
    Vertical wounds and hard shaft.
    Tuna and half mast.
    Thousands high in the plane.

    I'm losing, I'm not. I did not find out.
    No-one can see what's inside me.
    Why are you leaving? No one sees me.
    I can not be what I need.

    Push the monkey all night.
    Madan banana and strap
    with marshmallow smell.
    Mambo is fun.
    My love and only one.
    The last facility, run home.

    It does not make sense when you delete context.
    Nothing makes sense but one.
    We can all communicate through love.

    I'm losing, I'm not. I did not find out.
    No-one can see what's inside me.
    Why are you leaving? No one sees me.
    I can not be what I need.



    Original lyrics:
    An old dog
    And new tricks
    Caught in
    The thick of it
    Endless game
    Of pickup sticks

    Diamond
    In the rough
    Giving in
    The going’s tough
    Emotionally
    In the buff

    I’m lost, I’m gone
    My meaning isn’t found
    Nobody can see
    Whats inside me

    Why did it leave
    Nobody can see me
    I cannot be
    What I need

    Spank the monkey
    All night long
    Banana hammock
    And a thong
    Covered in
    Marshmallow fluff

    Horizontal
    Mambo for fun
    Making love
    To my only one
    Final base
    Home run

    I’m lost, I’m gone
    My meaning isn’t found
    Nobody can see
    Whats inside me

    Why did it leave
    Nobody can see me
    I cannot be
    What I need

    Harry Johnson
    And the Jones crew
    Juicy melons
    For me and you
    Gonna make
    Some beef stew

    Hatchet Wound
    And rigid shaft
    Tuna corp
    And half mast
    Mile high
    Via aircraft

    Nothing makes sense
    When you remove context
    Nothing makes sense
    What comes next?

    I’m lost, I’m gone
    My meaning isn’t found
    Nobody can see
    Whats inside me

    Why did it leave
    Nobody can see me
    I cannot be
    What I need
  • Dear darling, you left me broken and scarred and I had two terrible years
    Dear darling, you left me broken and scarred and I had two terrible years

    We met in this old ragged field, the place where I went when the world made me feel
    As if nothing could bring me joy
    But that day you gave me hope
    Only to resume

    Dear darling, you left me broken and scarred and I had two terrible years
    Dear darling, you left me broken and scarred and I had two terrible years

    For a few months
    We ran
    As if he were the owner of the world,
    nothing could stop us now
    But one day things have fallen
    The doctor came and said "I'm sorry"
    Your baby is gone

    Dear darling, you left me broken and scarred and I had two terrible years
    Dear darling, you left me broken and scarred and I had two terrible years
  • The holidays are upon us and it’s time to deck the halls.
    I’ll soon be slap ass crazy it’s my busiest time of all.
    I’ll make a list that I’ll check more than twice
    And by the time I’m finished I’ll be anything but nice.

    Decorate shop and cook, decorate shop and cook. My list is so damn long it reads just like a freaking book.
    Shop cook decorate, so much on my damn plate, Christmas Day won’t wait.

    The first page of my list gets the decorating done
    Trim the tree and dress the mantle there’s no time for Yuletide fun.
    set a festive table, get the wreath out in the front.
    Hang the lights and all the stockings
    Where are the stockings?

    Decorate shop and cook, decorate shop and cook. My list is so damn long it reads just like a freaking book.
    Shop cook decorate, so much on my damn plate, Christmas Day won’t wait.

    The second page involves finding the perfect gifts for all
    One kid wants a shotgun and the others want lol dolls
    to hell with this my feet hurt I’m going home to shop online
    I’ll just buy some gift cards thank God for amazon prime

    Decorate shop and cook, decorate shop and cook. My list is so damn long it reads just like a freaking book.
    Shop cook decorate, so much on my damn plate, Christmas Day won’t wait.

    Page 3 of my Christmas list has all the cooking that I will have to do
    ‘Cause gifts made in the kitchen say the perfect I love you!

    Decorate shop and cook, decorate shop and cook. My list is so damn long it reads just like a freaking book.
    Shop cook decorate, so much on my damn plate, Christmas Day won’t wait.

    Christmas Day won’t wait.
  • Anyway
    Where was I again?
    Trying hard to stifle tears
    Sitting on her unmade bed

    Your heart
    Was black and cold as ice
    Now I shivered to myself
    Walking back home on the night

    There were no lights
    On the houses on this street
    Guess my love story was just as real
    As Santa Claus

    In all this warmth and love
    These plans we weave
    I ended up alone on Christmas Eve

    -------------------------------

    Anyway
    I should have known
    You wouldn’t kiss me underneath
    The mistletoe

    Still have my gift for you
    Tied with a bow
    I threw it down into the ice and snow

    Part of me
    Wants to go back
    But another part could never
    See you again

    In all this warmth and love
    These plans we weave
    I ended up alone on Christmas Eve

    Hey Kris Kringle, this year there is something that I need
    Wrap up all her love and bring it back to me
    Hey Kris Kringle, take a seat and stay the night tonight
    I’m all by myself and it’s not right

    Loneliness
    Is like the cold
    If you’re not used to it
    It hurts a little more

    You said you loved me
    Was that a lie?
    Now my body’s shaking in the night

    Anyway
    Where was I again?
    Trying to tell my tale
    Of losing my best friend

    In all this warmth and love
    These plans we weave
    I ended up alone on Christmas Eve

    Hey Kris Kringle, this year there is something that I need
    Wrap up all her love and bring it back to me
    Hey Kris Kringle, take a seat and stay the night tonight
    I’m all by myself and it’s not right

    Hey Kris Kringle, this year there is something that I need
    Wrap up all her love and bring it back to me
    Hey Kris Kringle, take a seat and stay the night tonight
    I’m all by myself... and it’s not right
  • Gone out to play a while
    Rosebuds or six-and-outs?
    We've got a little surprise for you

    I can't wait to see their faces
    lighting up the morning

    An inside tree with shiny leaves.
    Winter fruits or hot fly corks?
    Robot paper, strange shapes
    sitting in the spare room corner.

    Waiting is the hardest part
    but worth it for the joy to see...

    Pointing, smiling, spinning around
    like a frog with skates getting high on chocolate.
    Jumping, screaming, snorted laughs
    like a little pink pig with a new blue snorkel.

    Draw the curtains. Let the light in.
    There's something shining for you.
    Tinsel, stars and baubles

    The waiting draws on for oh so long
    Two more sleeps until...

    Pointing, smiling, frothing at the mouth
    like a black and white lemur from a sugar cane ship.
    Jumping, dancing, flopping on the couch
    like a monkey in the bath with a dinosaur towel.

    Draw the curtains. Let the light in.
    These memories are growing for you.
    Tinsel, stars and baubles

    The excitement is thick enough to feel
    Tonight's the night, it's almost here.
    Just one more sleep and then you'll see
    there's something else about that tree.

    Watching, smiling, loving every second as they're
    buzzing with excitement like caffienated squirrels
    Living, being, breathing in the fun
    even grumpy old bears get to act a little young

    Who needs curtains when the light already in?
    Sweet little of memories of what we do.
    Tinsel, stars and baubles...
    Tinsel, stars and baubles...
    Tinsel, stars and baubles...

  • Verse 1 <br>

    Already, it’s returned, this dreadful time of year
    I’m tired of joyfulness, fed up with cheer
    These sordid memories, they cause anxiety
    There is no stopping these hollow holiday shopping sprees

    Chorus

    Christmas is canceled forever
    This is a shallow endeavor

    Verse 2

    The streets are decorated, honestly I truly hate it.
    Children screaming, noses bright, oh how I’d like to slay tonight
    Bar the doors and stoke the fire, the only luminescence
    Perhaps I’m asking for too much when I ask for Christmas presence

    Chorus

    The war on Christmas, engaging
    There is no aspect worth saving
  • Have a happy Christmas Party Time
    Have a happy Christmas Party Time
    Have a happy Christmas Party ...Tonight Tonight Tonight

    Have you seen all the presents?
    Have you seen all the presents?
    Have you seen all the presents?... Tonight Tonight Tonight

    I wonder why the worlds gone crazy,
    Since the last time I looked up
    Please don't go towards the light,
    I need you back by... my... side

    Have a happy Christmas Party Time
    Have a happy Christmas Party Time
    Have a happy Christmas Party ...Tonight Tonight Tonight

    Come on in tonight, sweet baby
    Come on in tonight, sweet honey

    I wonder why the worlds gone crazy,
    Since the last time I looked up
    Please don't go towards that light,
    I need you back by... my... side ... Guitar!

    Gareth's missing from the party
    Gareth's missing from the party
    Gareth's missing from the party ... Tonight
  • Cold, tired and hungry he has no home
    one of countless forgotten souls,
    he's all alone,

    no where to go, no where to sleep
    The icy city concrete numbs,
    his aching feet


    You may have your winter coat,
    but that doesn't mean to this way of life you're underwrote


    Steadfast look forward young blue eyes,
    No doubt would if you could but dogs can't cry



    House by house,
    well lit rooms,
    joyous smiles surround, plush Christmas trees

    apparently none of this is meant for me



    There's a man,
    in his way,
    long dark coat,
    must get away,
    but he can't
    for he's too weak,
    slumps to the ground,
    a faded sleep,


    a memory stirs he's in his arms,

    soaked, shivering and alarmed,


    beyond threshold a wall of warmth,
    gently placed down beside
    the hearth


    slowly the fear subsides,
    accepting the heat, from the fire inside

    Fresh food and water to him was plied,
    he can't cry but there's a tear in his eye

    as it seems his Christmas wish,
    has been delivered from st nicks list



    come inside and dry your winter coat,

    all his heart and love he'll give you the most

    so on this most very special day,
    open your hearts, your door and show them the way
  • The snow falls in perfect sheets
    Blanketing the ground it’s getting so cold now
    The fire inside tries to warm our souls
    Family around nothing could be better now

    Oh it’s christmas
    what a happy holiday
    To drive the dark away
    Oh it’s christmas
    Outside may be grey
    But our cheer drives all the gloom away

    Oh it’s Christmas
    What a happy Holiday
    Oh it’s Christmas

    The days get shorter they get dark so quick
    But that’s all right, spend family time inside
    Watch a movie while cuddled on the couch
    While the kids rush around, almost knock the tree down

    Chorus

    Bridge

    ---?
    Kids all in their beds
    Sneak down the stairs
    And put the presents perfectly in place
    Early morning, light fresh in the sky
    Hear them rush around, screaming joy that santa came tonight

    Chorus

    Bridge




  • Verse 1


    Come on in

    Out of the winter storm

    Come on in

    To where it’s always warm

    Come on in

    We’re just about to start

    Come on, get up and sing

    With love and joy from every heart


    Chorus


    It’s not the gifts under the tree

    That make this the place to be

    It’s something just between you and me



    Verse 2


    Come on in

    Out of the wind and snow

    Let it in

    The cheer that warms the soul

    Come on in

    Saint nick is almost here

    Come on, get up and sing

    ‘Cause it’s our favorite time of year


    Chorus


    It’s not the bells or mistletoe

    That make this the place to go

    It’s you and me together, ho ho ho

  • You might be on holiday
    But this town won't be catching any breaks
    Whatever the weather, stick together
    Christmas is on the way

    Chicago snow on the radio
    Dashboard glass on the floor
    The bright lights keep me from feeling low
    'Tis the season for ho-ho-ho-hope

    It's that time of year
    Full of jolly ol' cheer
    That not anywhere, not even here
    Could ever be missing

    Chicago snow on the radio
    Dashboard glass on the floor
    The bright lights keep me from feeling low
    'Tis the season for love and hope

    1956, hello to the new year
    In a week or two, it’ll be all clear
    Things change just like they always do, it's true
    The season might go, but I hope the feelings won't

    Chicago snow on the radio
    Dashboard glass on the floor
    The bright lights keep me from feeling low
    It's Christmas, just as I've hoped

  • NIGHT OF THE LIVING SLED

    In the dark night of christmas
    the stockings were hung
    gifts were promised us
    And the hymns were all sung

    The fire was roaring
    the shades were all drawn
    Kids asleep, snoring
    The guests were all gone

    Toy blocks set as castles
    pillow forts they had made
    Can't compare to the hassles
    of building wood barricades

    Stringing barbed wire
    where the lights should have been
    to prepare for the slaughter
    The reindeer could bring in

    After Santa was shot down
    In dark North Korea
    He arose from that sad ground
    Undead with ideas

    He would now mete out vengeance
    where he used to give toys
    The world will pay penance
    He'll kill girls and eat boys

    With 10 elven demons
    Riding along on the sleigh
    Death dealing heathens
    Smelled of blood and decay

    The reindeer all had red noses
    But so were their eyes
    Anyone who opposes
    Would be eaten alive

    So I stood by the window
    Shotgun in my hand
    Looking above and below
    A possible last stand

    My gloves were all worn thin
    From nailing wood beams
    Then in the distance I heard them
    Janging bells and dark screams

    I branced for the impact
    a sliegh hitting the roof
    I heard heavy hooves, footsteps
    The moment of truth

    They can't use the chimney
    With the fire below
    But I looked forward grimly
    to face this night in the snow

    HO HO Zombie Santa
    He jumped all the way down
    Slugged 3 shots of mylanta
    Time to take out this clown

    My wife had the flamethrower
    And was ready to burn
    But we gagged at the odor
    of St Nick's foul return

    The raindeer barked and bit hard
    on the wood from the door
    The elves caught us off guard
    by coming up through the floor

    So I used a sledgehammer
    Very lively and quick
    There isn't much glamor
    Smashing elves of St. Nick

    We shot through the mail slot
    A death dealing game
    And as they melted and got shot
    We laughed and called them by name

    Die dasher
    Die dancer
    Die prancer
    Burn vixen
    Melt comet
    On cupid
    You can donder
    Our blitzen

    I shot off Santa's hat
    My wife burned his belly
    Reloaded my gat
    While she turned him to jelly

    With napalm death
    Being shot from the barrel
    Our hot smoking breath
    Chanted no christmas carols

    And then with a bray and yell
    I heard on the roof
    as Rudolph fled back to hell
    I shot at his hooves

    But I think that I hit him
    As he flew out of sight
    And so it was written
    What a damned christmas night

  • Goodbye to my resolutions
    Another year has come and gone
    This Christmas sky is my Absolution
    A forgiving smile from a setting sun

    Nothing left to Remember
    Solace finds me in twinkling light
    Drink a scotch to this long December
    Turn the page and say good night

    Snow Falls
    Outside my window
    It covers and leaves this old world behind
    Go on
    Bring on the end so
    I can wash away moments that dance in my mind

    Welcome back this fatal season
    Beautiful death all dressed in white
    Evergreens lose the hopeful meaning
    Rebirth is my way to set it all right

    Gather all my expectations
    Count my wins while silver bells ring
    Fill my soul with the brilliant vibrations
    Mumbling hymns while angels sing

    Snow Falls
    Outside my window
    It covers and leaves this old world behind
    Go on
    Bring on the end so
    I can wash away moments that dance in my mind

    Tomorrow I'll find a fresh sentiment
    Warmed by the presence of family and friends
    The kids will loosen bows of childish innocence
    I'll see white and know what new snow represents
    That every bitter ending holds a chance to begin
    what matters is playing even if you don't win
    So I'll make all those same resolutions again
    But till then

    Snow Falls
    Outside my window
    It covers and leaves this old world behind
    Go on
    Bring on the end so
    I can wash away moments that dance in my mind

    Snow Falls
    Outside my window
    It covers and leaves this old world behind
    Go on
    Bring on the end so
    I can live with the moments that dance in my mind
  • I just can’t seem to reign it in,
    Teacher trying to get our attention,
    She’s sayin’ “Are you there, Justin?”
    And I just stare ahead and grin.

    I’m thinkin’ ‘bout the Christmas tree,
    And what there’s gonna be for me,
    I’ve only got one day to wait,
    My worries seem to fade away.

    As the day gets older,
    The air is getting colder,
    As the full moon rises,
    I get even more excited,
    Tomorrow’s ChristmaaaaaaaAAs day.

    Momma’s been at work all day
    How’d I let the time get away,
    Gotto hustle in a major way,
    For the most important holiday.

    Spend the evening all locked up inside,
    My bedroom tryin’ hard to hide,
    From Justin and his pryin’ eyes,
    The cookies are smelling so nice.

    As the day gets older,
    The air is getting colder,
    As the full moon rises,
    I get even more excited,
    Tomorrow’s ChristmaaaaaaaAAs day.

    INTRO:
    woo-ooo-oooh

    VERSE:
    You dont know me
    why are you so obsessed?
    i like it lonely
    we're not friends

    why try to comfort me
    I digress
    if you want to see
    why im stressed

    PRE-CHORUS:
    I don't hope
    anymore
    as i go
    to the door

    CHORUS:
    why've i been worried
    i dont know
    i'm in a hurry
    seeing ghosts

    gotta get out
    of this strange place
    i'm surrounded
    by the same face

    by the same face
    by the same face
    by the same face
    woo-ooo-oooh

    VERSE:
    I'm always haunted
    by my lost past
    not what i wanted
    can't let my thoughts last

    put pressure on it
    when they all ask
    "whats going on here"
    i never ran so fast

    BRIDGE:
    I'm so alone
    in my own mind
    try to atone
    for my lone crime

    PRE-CHORUS:
    till i confess
    just one more
    as i step
    towards the door

    CHORUS:
    why've i been worried
    i dont know
    i'm in a hurry
    seeing ghosts

    gotta get out
    of this strange place
    i'm surrounded
    by the same face

    why've i been worried
    i dont know
    i'm in a hurry
    seeing ghosts

    gotta get out
    of this strange place
    i'm surrounded
    by the same face

    by the same face
    by the same face
    by the same face
    woo-ooo-oooh

    OUTRO:
    by the same face
    by the same face
    by the same face
  • Chorus

    In the horde I find
    a harmonized mind
    But alone like me
    is futility
    can't lose who i am
    I resist in vain
    in the horde I find
    similitude's divine

    Verse

    Come to me
    All of you
    who are weary laden
    Never Alone
    Our Home
    are the souls we've taken
    take my hand
    if you can
    suddenly you awaken
    take and eat
    of this man
    for undying life he's broken

    I could run
    til I die
    but here I take my stand
    they may live
    just a thing
    replicate their henchmen
    No more gum
    got my gun
    Nada smash the system
    Take my hand
    put these on
    see the lies they feed us

    Grains of sand
    I but one
    fighting for human chaos
    Are you friend
    or them
    Kill their spawn, it's not great loss
    Am I monster
    or is it they
    those that seek to kill me
    Assimilate
    or just die
  • Who's to blame? What got you here?
    It's a shame. Now you feel fear.
    All the time. The toll is due.
    It's a crime, What will you do?

    You try to run, but it's to no avail,
    Get away? but you've already failed,
    Something in the air that makes me want to kill,
    Not gonna stop until I've had my fill.
    Got a blade, I picked it out for you,
    You're gonna see exactly what I can do,
    Without remorse I start to go to work,
    I can promise, this is gonna hurt.

    People say that I'm no good,
    I have nothing to redeem,
    They live like they say I should,
    Where life is squeaky clean,
    But how can they judge me so?
    I'm a product of their environment.
    One day soon, I'm gonna blow, I'm gonna blow...
    I'm gonna blow!

    You walk the street, you make another deal,
    Always happy to take what you can steal,
    You go to church, you pay your monthly tithe,
    Your sins can only be payed for with your life,
    See. My knife.
    I. Bring. Strife.
    I. Take. Life.
    You - you're done!

    People say that I'm no good,
    I have nothing to redeem,
    They live like they say I should,
    Where life is squeaky clean,
    But how can they judge me so?
    I'm a product of their environment.
    One day soon, I'm gonna blow...
    I'm gonna blow!

    Dad
    I didn't mean to disappoint
    I'm trying to be

    eventually, I will disappoint
    the darkness hides behind my eyes
    claws its way out from the inside

    Daddy
    didn't want me
    I'm
    nobody, darkness grows in me
    inside me i can't see
    the darkness consumes me
    i want to be
    someone who doesn't kill
    who doesn't hurt
    but i've got no choice
    the darkness
    breaks me, turns me and
    you pay the price
    down in the cellar
    the crawl space forever
    you and me together
    forever and ever
    i just want to
    bring joy to the world
    but darkness finds it's escape

  • Winds shriek with a cold that gnaws your bones
    The way back home lost in the snow
    This place where nothing living roams
    They’ve gone and left you all alone

    So hungry
    Where have your friends all gone?

    Glimpses of a cruel, horned visage
    Out there or in your mind
    Clawed, emaciated horror
    The lost become in time
    Sapping at your strength to fight
    The urge to feed the beast inside

    Skeletal hands with claws of ice
    Or barren trees in pale moonlight?
    The gaunt figure in shifting shades
    It’s just delirium you pray

    So hungry
    Where have your friends all gone?

    Chorus

    Somewhere out there
    Smoke is rising
    A dim light
    On the far horizon

    Did your friends vanish in the gloom
    Our drown below the ice, entombed
    They've gone and left you all alone
    A taste of blood but not your own
  • This is the song that the forest sings
    surrounded by peace and tranquility
    I remember it like a dream
    An endless but elusive memory
    Seven millimeter magnum shells,
    and me in the blind all by myself
    That was the moment that he came to me
    He filled my vision he was all I could see
    Fourteen points and ten feet tall
    I thought that he would look great on my wall

    What a massive figure to behold
    As if his face were carved from stone
    Antlers like coral from the sea
    The lifeless gaze stares back at me
    Stoic eyes black as coal
    seem to stare into my soul

    That was the moment the world changed for me
    Learned to mistrust what I hear and see
    Senseless whispers scream over every thought
    It's hard to think. My mind is lost

    I ate his flesh I kept his skin
    I had to prove that I would win
    I kept his head as my trophy
    An insult to his dignity

    The forest no longer sings
    It's his voice that takes away my peace
    No silence, no tranquility
    only whispers
    "end your life" he's telling me
    To make it even
    Bring back the balance
    I have to do what he commands
    Give in to, his cruel demands
    The voice speaking from the nether
    I can make the voice go away forever
  • COMFORT DOG *
    -------------
    It was Anna's first night left all alone
    at first she was brave in her home.
    But then on the news, A murderer's loose
    Then lightening took out all the phones.

    But she had the company of the family hound
    At night licked her hand so she knew he's around
    The dog did as she said, and slept under her bed
    And protected her when she heard scary sounds.

    Then late that night she heard a drip
    To the kitchen with slippers so she wouldn't slip
    She looked for the source, found nothing of course
    Went back to bed thinking she had a grip

    She put her hand under the bed for a lick
    And felt it and knew that her dog wasn't sick
    She fell back asleep, in a slumber so deep
    Her dog panting under the bed, nondescript

    The drip dropping continued all through the night
    But Anna felt safe and slept tight
    In the bathroom that morn, her heart became torn.
    As the source was revealed to her sight

    Her dog gutted and hung - horror filled her.
    And she saw words written in blood on the mirror
    You should've knew, little child, that Humans lick too !
    And clear now in the mirror, behind her stood the killer


    * based on an old Hoosier folk tale
  • - Cowell -
    Take a polaroid to remember
    our exquisite time together


    Of course you will never forget
    the time i got into that slit
    you should have seen behind my eyes
    this handsome face is just a lie
    but i'll come back once you're cold
    to fill your dirty gaping hole

    victim born, killer bred
    I lure you in
    fill you with dread
    remorse is not my currency
    you did this
    you made me, me


    Good girls do what I like
    lets take a ride, have a hike
    this is the last road you'll travel
    the last sound before death's rattle
    this shallow ditch your resting place
    shouldn't have had such a pretty face

    victim born, killer bred
    I lure you in
    fill you with dread
    remose is not my currency
    you did this
    you made me, me

    I saw you drinking with your friends
    my broken arm was just pretend
    calmly i bash in your head
    it hurts, but soon I'll choke you dead
    my smiling face the last you'll see
    you finally get a real glimpse of me

  • The shock of solid ground
    I hear a worthless little sound
    Rebounding in my head
    “We need to get down there” it said

    A million stories high
    In one quick movement I could fly
    And hit the ground below
    What comes after I don’t know

    To long for when we all were young
    To long for lying near someone
    To long for warmth in wailing winds
    (I long for everything to stop)

    To long for something you can’t find
    To long for silence in my mind
    Too long this has been going on

    Blood rushing to my head
    To this day I can’t remember
    Getting back in that elevator

    He yelled and cursed
    But still I managed to get home
    Opened my creaking door
    And then I curled up on the floor

    Tired hands and tired feet
    Tonight he won’t let me sleep
    From our lips escapes a moan
    Wishing I could feel alone
  • Hey I would be lying to you
    If I say this is the only thing I would do

    Why am I still inside you
    if they say you are gone
    I am still holding your hand
    They say its wrong
    I just can't let go of you
    This is true love, yeah
    I just can't let go of you
    This is true love
    Oh yeah
    They hate our true love

    Chorus
    Why don't they leave us alone
    can't they hear me
    I can't let go of you now

    Why are you so quiet?
    Speak to me
    Speak to me
    Tell them there is nothing
    wrong with what we are doing
    They need to top telling me this is wrong
    Tell them you are not dead
    tell them you are not gone

    Chorus
    Why don't they leave us alone
    can't they hear me
    I can't let go of you

    Ressurrection
    Last seduction
    This reduction
    has left me broken

    Speak to me
    Speak to me

    Why don't they leave us alone
    can't they hear me
    I can't let go of you
  • Stir and rattle 'em up,
    My bones, ah they shake
    Stuck underneath the dirt
    But now they all quake

    I heard a few people comin' my way
    Pop outta the ground and give 'em a hey
    With my old pickaxe, that'll teach 'em today
    My mines are restricted, and to this, I'll say

    [Chorus]
    It's high-time to die
    This midnight rides
    I'll drag ya back with me
    It's a hell of another side

    [Verse 2]
    I got blood on my hands
    And these lands are fine
    I'll just shine
    Any skulls that come down inside

    [Chorus]
    It's high-time to die
    This midnight rides
    I'll drag ya back with me
    It's a hell of another side

    [Bridge]
    Break 'em down
    Like the rocks
    You'll all see
    I'm the one that knocks

    [Verse 3]
    Crack 'em on the stone
    See what pieces are left
    I told ya not to mess with
    Ol' Miner Cleft

    Ah boom goes the dyn-o-mite
    Gonna leave no trace
    Adventurer remains
    All gone to make room for another time
  • He could see her as a lampshade
    Wanted to turn her on
    Delicious with a champagne
    Eat her 'til she's gone

    He calls her sins disgusting
    Says she's a rotten little girl
    He grabbed onto her body
    To take it for a whirl

    Insane
    Another product of the system
    Mind Games
    Brutality found another victim

    You won't see it...
    But you can bet we will

    His neighbours call him a nice guy
    He fakes it so damn well
    Doesn't even have to try
    Guess you can never tell

    He's the type she wants to trust
    'til she sees the razors
    He promised to make her famous
    Put her name in the papers

    Insane
    Another product of the system
    Mind Games
    Brutality found another victim
  • Blood Red Noise

    Something crinkles underneath
    Skitters back beneath the teeth
    Frowning skin pulled taught across their bony brows
    Painfully they enter
    Centering me heedlessly
    Doubled eyes reflecting needles to my sin

    It was making noise!
    I think you're enjoying this too fervently now
    Had no other choice!
    It was making noise!
    It was making noise!
    It was making me

    Paranoid
    The blood red noise I can't avoid
    Humanoid
    It looked like me and talked like it might know me

    Lanterns passing overhead
    Lighting crimson on the bed
    Mangled mandibles and legs I didn't care to bury
    They recognize their kind and turn to reappraise the madman
    But I got one, yes I got one
    I smashed that mirror

    It was making noise!
    I think you're dissecting me too flagrantly now
    Had no other choice!
    It was making noise!
    It was making noise!
    It was making me

    Paranoid
    The blood red noise I can't avoid
    A Humanoid
    It looked like me and talked like it might know

    Low hungry growls eat my patience raw
    Wondering how you'll fix

    There are cracks beyond repairing

    Paranoid
    The blood red noise I can't destroy
    The blood red noise
    I can't avoid the noise annoys me
    Humanoid
    I had no choice
    It had my voice
    I killed the noise
    Blood red noise of paranoia
  • [*Look into the camera,
    That little red light
    It’s the only reason that you’re still alive
    Gotta gimme a show,
    Straight to video
    That makes me hit rewind, rewind, rewind*]

    You cry for your momma, but your momma isn’t here
    Lemme hear you scream for daddy

    Got you into my van, one hand
    Tied behind my back,
    It was a piece of candy

    Now I hope you like your new digs,
    20 feet down, hands bound
    Got you wrapped up safe
    Where you’ll never be found
    And all around town
    They’re calling your name, they’re saying
    No she’d never runaway
    But after the first 48
    It’s a lost cause
    Calling off the search dogs
    And all of the search team
    Take a drink and hit pause

    Don’t be scared of the red toolbox,
    That’s only for bad girls
    Good girls get the blue toolbox,
    We’ll start slow at first
    This will hurt,
    And I want you to tell me all about it,
    Fight me, bite me, curse me,
    And if you know what’s good for you,
    Be a good girl, Scream for Daddy,
    or it only gets worse.


    I wish you could see this,
    up at the surface,
    It’s a media circus
    Almost makes me nervous
    And flyers are plastered
    Your face attached
    on every location
    And your father’s addressing the nation
    He saying somebody catch this bastard
    And faster,
    You’re somebody’s little girl,
    And I have ya
    Did I mention you have real pretty eyes?
    Turn em right over there, and say hi
    To your admiring fan club
    Watching from Tor
    There’s a deep dark web to explore
    So let’s get to work on the feetsies,
    10 perfect toes all pedicured neat, see,
    6 still wiggling and 4 on the floor
    But you screamed how I like
    So I won’t take more
    Til tomorrow, or
    Maybe we’ll focus on
    Something that hasn’t been torn yet

    Lemme get them digits, girl
    Could come in handy
    I might leave you both your thumbs,
    If you Scream for Daddy

    Oooooh, here we go now girl
    Bitch, you slit your wrists
    But you still couldn’t fit
    Through the zip ties I zipped
    To the wall in this pit
    And the bit
    of your hope that was lit
    Wasn’t gonna do shit
    Your salvation was nothing but fiction
    So hit me and scratch me
    With what you have left
    Cuz your death is up next
    When I stomp on your neck
    And your blood rises up
    And comes out in a retch
    And your struggling stops,
    With a hideous squeltch
    And your soul rises up overhead
    you thank god you’re finally dead
    You’ll look down at the smear that was you
    On the ground and you’ll see that
    We still aren’t through


    Believe me, your show isn’t over
    Thousands of perverts
    are jacking and clapping
    When the new girl gets here
    And sees you, she’s gonna
    Scream for Daddy

  • You’re at a fancy dinner party,
    The guests have arrived, but the host isn’t there
    Then at the top of the stairs he appears
    DANNY SEXBANG

    “I see that you’ve made yourselves comfortable”
    He declaims to you all with an unnerving smirk
    As he reaches the table and the chairs strap you in
    DANNY SEXBANG

    “I’ve brought you here for one reason
    To take part in the greatest of games”
    He raises a gold candelabra and with a button under the table,
    Releases Your Straps

    Guests are streaming past toward DANNY SEXBANG
    Entering this deadly dance with DANNY SEXBANG
    He’s bashing all their heads in
    NINJA SEX PARTIER, DANNY SEXBANG

    You don’t want to fight DANNY SEXBANG
    So you run up the stairs past DANNY SEXBANG
    Trying to hide from
    DINNER PARTY MURDERER, DANNY SEXBANG

    You’ve reached the Master Bedroom
    You search frantically for a way to get out
    And that’s when you spy it, a wide open window

    You rush to the sill and stick your head out
    You look toward the ground you’re 3 stories up
    But before you can steel yourself for the drop

    You feel hands press into your back
    “Just one left” a voice behind you says
    “But soon you’ll be gone” as you
    FEEL HIM PUSH (YOU)



    You try to grab a hold of DANNY SEXBANG
    But it’s out of your control DANNY SEXBANG
    You’ve fallen to the stones now
    THEY BROKE YOUR FALL, BUT ALSO YOUR KNEES

    You’re crawling far away from DANNY SEXBANG
    You are done with being prey for DANNY SEXBANG
    You look back to the window
    WHERE HAS HE GONE, DANNY SEXBANG

    He’s always pushed the boundaries
    The freedom before was just a tease
    He’s found a way to make his name known all the way across the seas
    This whole thing for him is just a game
    Feeling alive his only aim
    You can’t help but wonder if this is what becomes of minor fame

    By now you’re at the gardens
    Still crawling along at a breakneck pace
    But as you pass the hydrangeas you hear him
    DANNY SEXBANG

    You attempt to hide in the flowers
    You do a good job, all things considered
    But he walks straight toward you with his gold candelabra
    DANNY SEXBANG

    “I see that you’ve made yourself comfortable”
    He says with a laugh and a hideous grin
    As he lifts his gold candelabra to the sky
    PREPARING TO STRIKE

    He brings his weapon down, YOU DODGE TO THE RIGHT
    You lunge for his legs, HE KICKS OUT OF SPITE
    But you’ve grappled his legs now,
    DOWN TO THE GROUND, DANNY SEXBANG

    His weapon of hate COMES DOWN ON YOUR HEAD
    You pretend to go limp HE THINKS THAT YOU’RE DEAD
    But you just found his Boot Knife!
    YOU STAB INTO THE THIGH OF DANNY SEXBANG
    He yelps out in surprise, YOU STAB HIM AGAIN
    There’s fear in his eyes, AND BLOOD ON HIS SHIN
    His legs are giving out now,
    DOWN TO THE GROUND, DANNY SEXBANG

    You’re crawling to his head, TO GET TO HIS BRAIN
    He hits your arm instead, YOU YELL OUT IN PAIN
    You stab him in the skull now
    THE LIGHT LEAVES THE EYES OF DANNY SEXBANG

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

    Hello. I am American actor George Clooney.
    I have grey vagina hairs.

    If you spend your time eating chicken wings,
    you'll grow an extra elbow.
    I will devote myself!

    Why does Bryan Singer keep making X-Men films?

    We try.

    We try, we try, we try!
    We try, we try, we try!

    Sometimes I wonder why I keep trying, because love is a dangerous thing.

    But if you feel bad that you are still a weeaboo virgin,
    just remember: at least you're not a brony.

    We try.

    We try, we try, we try!
    We try, we try, we try!
    We try, we try, we try!
    We try, we try, we try!
  • Verse

    Feeling the sickest of emotions,
    a sentiment shared I know,
    for your bonds hold no significance,
    on this night a kin to hell
    and every three sixty five days
    it comes but once in a year
    with no thought of the consequence
    you can justly kill all your peers
    so stay primed with your knife
    if you want to keep your life
    as through the chaos and confusion
    your next fateful intrusion
    could be an untimely death
    and as you take your last breath
    come the dawns arrival your killer roams free
    no fear of reprisal

    Chorus

    When the clock strikes twelve,
    witching hour doth toll the bell,
    Blood red moon a gate to hell,
    nauseous feeling rising swell,
    murderous murderous intentions,
    from the most innocent of man,
    For all will not end well,
    when the clock strikes twelve

    Verse

    what a strange peculiar circumstance,
    a product of man or pure happenstance,
    is it a folly of the rich pray tell,
    an underclass to control and quell,
    for every three sixty five days
    it comes but once in a year,
    when you can slit a mans throat,
    and yell out loud with a cheer
    gut a man, sliced from head to toe,
    a societal apathy to this criminal low,
    and for countless generations to follow,
    we carry replanting the seed and sow

    Chorus

    When the clock strikes twelve,
    witching hour doth toll the bell,
    Blood red moon a gate to hell,
    nauseous feeling rising swell,
    murderous murderous intentions,
    from the most innocent of man,
    For all will not end well,
    when the clock strikes twelve

    Final verse

    uuuh.. it hurts...
    make it stop,
    what are we doing
    it's rising,
    it's rising,
    more
    more pain,
    more blood,
    more murder
    more murder
    more murder
    more murder
    more murder
    more murder
  • Crashing through the air.
    No chance to stop.
    Scared of what's up next.
    Every step is danger.

    Forget what they taught you
    before your head hits the wall.
    Follow the money trail
    right down the hole.

    Move fast!
    Bursting out the gates.
    Just go!
    Kaizo lucky star.

    Right now
    you're a brand new professional.
    Don't look back,
    my kaizo lucky star.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Alright!

    Everywhere we go, we're faced with problems.
    Some obstacles we gotta overcome.
    But even if the risk is death we get knocked down,
    we just get back up again.

    Flowing like the breeze.
    Formless between the blades.
    Obstacles now the easy path.
    I've rearranged my way.

    Run free!
    Look up to the sky.
    Just be!
    Kaizo lucky star.

    It's true!
    You can make it if you dare.
    No need to turn back
    with my kaizo lucky star.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Every day I think of you
    And I don’t mind if outside is blue
    My waifu, my dear, you’re all that I need
    You blossom my life like a sakura tree
    I know you’re not real but you’re real to me
    Well deep in my mind you wander free.

    Your big big eyes that give me much love
    I’m a baka for leaving you alone
    You’re tsugoi in every single way
    So from now I’m not getting away
    x2

    To the end and by the stars
    we’ll be travelling side by side
    you’re my sugar and I am your tea
    we’ll defy all gravity
    superpower(s) and baddies mellows
    your underwear of watermelons
    in your kawaii frenesy
    well find longing you and me.

    To the end and by the stars
    we’ll be travelling side by side
    you’re my favourite daydream
    let’s cuddle so I can steal your body heat.
    I’ll raise my power over 9000
    and when you feel (that) my ki is rising
    be prepared I’m ready to shoot

    Your big big eyes that give me much love
    I’m a baka for leaving you alone
    you’re tsugoi in every single way

    To the end and by the stars
    we’ll be travelling side by side...
    thinking now this been too much
    I don’t recall the human touch
    feel so drowsy and mesmerized
    I don’t know if I may be a weeb
    but I should be a better person
    will you let me just a second?
    Been delaying this too much
    I don’t recall the human touch
    feel so drowsy and mesmerized
    I should try and go outside
    another day, and times go by
    I’ll just carry you to the outside
    you and me will see the Earth
    oh here we go!
  • Verse 1, 2
    Wake from death and return to life
    Wondering where I belong
    Moments come one at a time
    One chance to right the wrongs

    Face will change to tell me why
    And light that path that I move along
    Give me faith so I can try
    To do these things that make me strong

    Prechorus 1, 2
    Devil in me
    Not what it seems
    Just cut to the center of what I wish I could be
    Devil in me
    Not what it seems
    See it in me

    Chorus 1,2,3
    I can leave my mark and turn the page
    But I am left questioning Is it me?
    Break free

    When you read my life what will it say
    And will I say that it's mine to lead?
    It's me

    Verse 2
    Not an excuse for time
    Follow until it's gone
    Will do the deed it's right
    Cause I'm the one whose wrong
    Through life I could not see
    My faith must lead me home
    The future is my guide
    The path is mine alone
  • You build me up and break me
    All my sins I must confess
    But your love is redeeming
    oh yeah

    I need to let you go
    But my heart keeps me from doing so
    Only you can save me now

  • (0:32) So! In this dream
    I fly free
    Not shackled into complicated clans and company
    Now I see
    What a team we'd be
    If only I would dare to fly, could dare to try
    A dreamer by your side
    Care to try
    A dreamer by your side
    Say we never die
    Yeah!

    All it takes is one more shot to break
    Gotta fight to make a claim to stake
    See the ghouls and gods who stand alone
    If we power through we'll sit the throne
    We don't need no fancy tricks to win 'em.
    We know how to take our licks and give 'em.
    If I fly with you, my friend
    Someday some way maybe this dream will-
  • As a boy I drink whiskey, my old father's curse
    Now as a sea farer rum quenches my thirst
    I scour the coves and I trawl the warm bays
    A thousand miles from home in the shallows I stay
    I was born amongst acres of stalks of corn
    But I guess I was destined to be the thorn
    Kicked out at 16 to go on my own
    I stole me a ship and I set out alone

    A rod in my hand and salt in my hair
    No girls for me. No money, no cares
    It was right for a while but then the storms came
    They destroyed my village and us salt men were blamed
    We had emptied the depths of all the sea's life
    Now nature's sweet anger had us paying the price
    We were chased from our homes by pitch fork and stone
    Ten men looked to me and I chose to roam

    So listen ye foolhardy land loving swine
    Shunning a fisherman's never divine
    He'll take to the seas with fire in his eyes
    And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
    We make fire fill the sky
    This a pirates way 'til he dies
    We make fires fill the sky
    And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive

    We gathered up fruits, our last meats and grains
    We toppled lumber for our own gain
    We hid for a fortnight on abandoned beach
    And built ourselves a pirate's fleet
    Off to horizons to find the beyond
    Three black beasts, pine and oak strong
    We carry the symbols of the watery grave
    No man alive can stop this wave

    So listen ye foolhardy land loving swine
    Shunning a fisherman's never divine
    He'll take to the seas with fire in his eyes
    And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
    We make fires fill the skies
    This is a pirates way 'til he dies
    We make fire and smoke fill the skies
    And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive

    Listen ye foolhardy land loving swine
    Shunning a fisherman's never divine
    He'll take to the seas with fire in his eyes
    And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
    We make fires fill the skies
    This a pirates way til he dies
    We make fires fill the skies

    Beware The Deadly Shade!
    The mast! The mast!
    Stop journeying! belay!

    Verse:
    Legends tell of
    A ghostly ship
    Beware of any
    Passing trip!

    Has eyes with demons
    Looking through
    It swore allegiance
    To Devil's crew

    Becalmed she were
    On the wistful tide
    The vessel creaked,
    Riches inside

    Marooned o'er waters
    Still as ghosts
    As Davy Jone's Locker
    Always hosts

    Chorus:

    Marched on deck
    A dozen fools
    Moving towards their deaths

    No common sense

    Anyone who
    dares set foot
    Is damned to Hell
    While his soul is took

    Consumed by greed
    Of fame and wealth
    T'is the end
    Of Hollow's health

    Beware The Deadly Shade!

  • He returns to the gates of an empty homestead
    They’ve all gone to Greenland with Erik the Red
    Well this son of Herjolf’s a family man
    He vows to sail westward and see them again

    With no map and no compass he sets out from shore
    Not a man in his crew been to Greenland before
    Not the wisest of plans, this he’s quick to admit
    But no place in Valhalla for norsemen who quit

    Oars beating on toward the setting sun
    The wind, it blows where it wills
    Through the mist and the waves and the freezing rain
    They have an oath to fulfill

    After ten or so days of good wind in their sails
    Dark clouds in the sky and the lash of the gales
    Rowing hard through the storm but they can’t match its force
    Caught in the tempest and drifting off course

    Swept miles clear of Greenland toward some foreign sand
    In wonder they gaze at this new westward land
    A coast rich in timber, so vast and so green
    A sight that no norsemen before them have seen

    They turn back toward Greenland with stories to tell
    Of the new land they saw and the storms that befell
    Now new men build longships inspired by the tale
    With Leif Erikson at the helm, they take sail

    Oars beating on toward the setting sun
    The wind, it blows where it wills
  • In sixteen-hundred ninety-three from Galway we set sail
    For chilly arctic waters to go fishing for the whale
    In passing of Clare Island, through thickest fog and gloom
    A ship with blood-red sails spilled out, heralding our doom
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who’d ever set sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    As our ship was being boarded, our captain cried “Be brave!
    Fight boldly and if not your lives, at least your pride you’ll save!”
    But none could swing the cutlass well, or aim the pistol true
    When under attack by maiden marines from the fiercest pirate crew.
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who’d ever set sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    Flowing waves of crimson hair gave their leader away
    As she shouldered her blunderbuss when she’d won the day
    “Tis a fine ship I’m getting,” said she, “and maybe I’ll sign some of you”
    “Unless, that is, you’d rather sink than sail with LaRue!”
    I didn't have to think for long, as I never was much for swimmin’
    And so I took my chances with a crew half made of women
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who’d ever set sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    The youngest of the new recruits was a lively lad named Tucker
    He was leering at LaRue’s first mate, and he brazenly asked to--
    fffffaster than his words were spoke, and quicker than I could cuss
    The etiquette onboard the ship was enforced by LaRue’s blunderbuss.
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who’d ever set sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    “While he’s still a-smoking” said she, “let’s go over a rule or two”
    “This boy has acted like a swine, and so has died like one too.”
    “What you reap when you sail with me will be just what you sow,
    “Respect each other and you will see that respect for us all will grow”
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who’d ever set sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    We raided every single coast, and on every sea did roam
    When a Letter of Marque came from the Queen and became our ticket home
    Pardoned for our piracy, once more on solid ground
    ‘Twas no surprise as I looked around that LaRue could not be found.
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who’ll be next to sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    There’s many the erstwhile mariner, who of Captain Kidd will boast
    And to Blackbeard or Barbarossa will raise a boisterous toast
    But the pirates who got out alive really are quite few
    And there’s none so rich in heart or gold as them what sailed with LaRue.
    Refrain: So it’s heave away, bullies, and kick her through,
    Who wouldn’t set sail with the Dread Red LaRue?

    what is that pirates want

  • Waves At My Back

    I've loved the sea since I were a babe
    waves, waves, at my back
    Had me a lass and she were a fox
    waves, waves, away

    A ship done called for me to come
    waves, waves at my back
    my gal did cry but still i run
    waves, waves, away

    Before I left I ran her goods
    waves waves at my back
    Promised to marry her when I return
    waves waves away

    I met me a girl in far off guam
    waves waves at my back
    She played the bagpipe like a Highland gal
    waves waves away

    I visited brothels world around
    waves waves at my back
    I loved girls both thin and round
    waves waves away

    In each port another love
    waves waves at my back
    just me, a girl, a bottle of rum
    waves, waves away

    Soon as they love me the sea, she calls
    waves, waves, at my back
    They got their figures but the sea has it all
    waves, waves away

    Returned home to find my girl
    waves, waves, at my back
    She'd had a baby while I were gone
    waves, waves, away

    I called upon 'er to make me her wife
    waves, waves, at my back
    The baby were way too young
    waves, waves away

    Been gone bout two years long
    waves, waves at my back
    The baby t'wer a fortnight old
    waves, waves away

    Out to sea is where I belong
    waves, waves, at my back
    Whores in my bed but the Sea's me wife
    waves waves away

  • Verse:
    Fair isle that I knew, sun-soaked and swaddled blue
    Inspired by desire to return to you
    The bounty of your crystal waters mount in memory
    The sights we sought in seas afar cannot compare to thee

    Chorus:
    Fronds plucked from mother palm
    Plaintively beseech
    Reach out with warmer winds
    And guide us to your beach
    And should our whistle fail to sail us
    True into your quay
    Know that fronds of mother palm
    Will drift ashore another day

    Verse:
    How might a man resist a peach aripe
    Or the genesis of bliss in the night
    Sound of bottle breaking and a short yelp
    (Multiple voices) NO!
    All a man can beg is a swift return to bed
    On a wild isle smiling, that evils fear to tread

    Bridge:
    Sons of the sun sing songs so sweetly
    In the honor of no other mother jewel
    (Sons of the sun sing songs so sweetly
    In the honor of no other mother jewel)

    Chorus:
    Fronds of the mother palm
    Plaintively beseech
    Reach out with warmer winds
    And wash us to your beach
    And should our father fortune us with
    Fishy-favored days (HA)
    Know that soon the sons will be
    Awash into your quay

  • FINALLY FREE

    Verse 1:
    I saw a vision that just could not be
    of brightened dark over a solid sea.
    And as I streaked toward the abyss
    I felt a peace that I could not dismiss.

    Nothing here made any sense.
    I felt the past in a future tense.
    This place was what I needed.
    All my worries quickly retreated.

    Chorus:
    I'm tired of trying to be in control.
    I don't care anymore.
    Responsibility consumes my soul.
    Let me out, where's the door?

    Why did I ever want to be the boss,
    Making lists and taking names?
    I'll give it all up, I will take the loss.
    I'm done with rules to games.

    Verse 2:
    I found my footing on unstable ground,
    I heard a whisper in the frozen sound.
    The siren song is overpowering!
    Can't you taste happiness flowering?

    When I stop the fight then I push through.
    Bureaucracy's fake, chaos is true.
    Stomped down hearts staged an insurrection.
    Oh joy, here is your resurrection!

    Chorus:
    I'm tired of trying to be in control.

    Responsibility consumes my soul.

    Remnants old
    The silence pools beneath
    Hide and hold

    Upon the shaded floor
    Fadeless bone
    Father who tread before
    Wood and stone

    A lonely call
    Growing small
    A cry that dies in hollow
    A wail that fails to echo

  • NOT AGAIN

    --------------

    VERSE

    I was going to work in my pickup truck

    if I'm late again, then my ticket's up

    then the sun was blocked, like a big dark cloud

    It got real hot, and then I blacked out

    I awoke midair, and to my surprise

    a blinding light was shining in my eyes

    500 feet above the ground

    a metal ship, and then a whirring sound...

    CHORUS

    A door slid open, and they pulled me in

    10 aliens standing there - with a grin

    Talking gibberish, I start to pray

    They had giant eyes and skin of gray.

    VERSE

    The leader pointed, and they approved,

    and then the ship began to move.

    But there was a crash, and a ripping sound

    and the spaceship fell straight to the ground!

    A tear in the wall, I had to get a grip

    'Cause I saw, we hit another ship!

    Another kind of alien, ghostly white

    And on the ground they began to fight....

    CHORUS

    So in the ruckus, I slipped away

    to get to work, to make my pay

    But then I fell into a well

    today's just been a living hell

    BRIDGE

    Someone heard me screaming, pulled me right out of there

    but I lost my pants, and stood in my underwear!

    (C'mon gimme a break!)

    VERSE (soft part)

    So I went to Kmart and I got some pants

    hitched back to my truck, I still had a chance

    It wouldn't start, it wouldn't go my way

    I went back to town, to call Triple A...

    CHORUS

    He showed up quick, and I finally felt lucky

    but flipped the wires and blew out the battery!

    So it wasn't my fault, that guy's a jerk

    And I promise boss, that's why I'm late for work
  • In between in the creaking rafters
    Under the light of distant stars
    Giants pace the ruins after
    Humans tore the world apart
    Faceless, thoughtless, never breathing
    Hollow echoes fill the air
    Running from the falling rubble
    We descend the crumbling stairs.

    Do not follow
    Do not find him
    Do not seek the farthest shore
    To keep the world you know from burning
    Take apart what you adore

    Do not follow
    Do not find him
    Do not seek the farthest shore
    To keep the world you know from burning
    Take apart what you adore


    Deep beneath the city cower
    Huddled masses whispering
    Prayers unto silent walkers
    Listen to them as they sing

    Once there was a light above us / single child amongst the many
    Once we did not eat the dead / ventured deeper underground
    Nothing grows where once we feasted / passed the lines of safteys fires
    Pulled apart and slowly bled / following a humming sound

    Do not follow
    Do not seek the farthest shore
    To keep the world you know from burning
    Take apart what you adore

    Do not follow
    Do not find him
    Do not seek the farthest shore
    To keep the world you know from burning
    Take apart what you adore


    There in deepness without sleeping
    Midnight aura slowly creeping
    Into earth and soil steeping
    Sat the thing all secrets keep

    From the god came crooked thunder
    From the ground came hands of peat
    To raise us all into miasma
    Writhing hands and shaking feet

    Got his own parking spot for his brand new sedan
    And a cushy six figures working for the man
    Got his two point five kids and his white picket fence
    Just ask his neighbors, they’ll say he’s the best

    Chorus

    But what Bill doesn’t know is who fills in the blanks
    When things don’t add up in his memory banks
    Why the path to success always seems so clear
    Why the folks in his way seem to just disappear

    Verse 2

    Plays a mean game of golf when he wants to have fun
    Got a dad joke for everything under the sun
    Got a nice corner office with his name on a plaque
    Lives the good life and everything seems right on track

    Chorus

    But what Bill doesn’t know is who else shares his head
    Why the plants grow so well in the plot by his shed
    Why he always runs out of duct tape so soon
    And who’s pulling the strings, well he hasn’t a clue

    Outro (or final chorus)

    What Bill doesn’t know is who else paid the price
    That the good life was bought at the edge of a knife
    Put together the pieces, it’s easy to see
    What Bill doesn’t know is he’s me



  • 7 AM
    Waking up feeling like this again
    Spent the whole night feeling discontent
    Searching for the order on which I depend

    I tried to pretend
    That this notebook and pen weren’t my best friends
    Scrawling down thoughts until I was spent
    Crawled into bed just to stay up until dawn again

    Twenty to noon
    Copying down arbitrary figures from inside this cube
    Thinking about everything but what I’m doing
    Even if I finish I can’t leave this room

    Until the late afternoon
    When I can head back to my lonely room
    Walking through the crowds and the toxic fumes
    Every step a little closer to my tomb

    I won’t be satisfied, by
    This mediocre life, I’ll
    Reject the path they chose for me

    After my rest
    Thoughts bubble up that I just cannot suppress
    Problems I still have not addressed
    Dismiss and ignore it’s what I do best

    Consumed by stress
    Keeping me up like a man possessed
    Wondering how I got into this mess
    Feeling like my heart’ll jump out of my chest

    I won’t be satisfied, by
    This mediocre life, I’ll
    Reject the path they chose for me

    And I will try to fight this
    The path that I decide is
    Within my reach, just wait and see


    I won’t be satisfied, by
    This mediocre life, I’ll
    Reject the man I chose to be

    But can I even fight this
    Everything that I’ve tried is
    Out of my reach, eternally
  • In the beginning was the void
    And everything mixed in one
    In the beginning was the mass
    In the beginning was Chaos

    Without form stood everything
    No oceans nor skies separate
    No light of the Titan sun
    Nor shine of the Phoeban moon

    Ocean and land were mixed as one,
    The land was unstable,
    The ocean not passable,
    Hot fought with the cold, wet with dry.

    But by a God and better nature,
    Were the elements freed of Chaos,
    The sky and the waters from land
    Into a peace harmonious
  • People act like maniacs everyday
    and no one cares
    And when I shut my eyes
    I just find more madness there

    I don't know if these things are real
    or if I'm the one who's insane
    But if I don't do something about it
    I know it'll be my bane.

    I met a strange man
    in a strange place today
    He said his name was "The Guide"
    And he would show me the way

    He took my hand
    and we walked through a wall
    On a journey through love and hate
    and everything and nothing at all

    Water upside down in the ceiling
    I climb it like monkey bars
    And then jump in

    I see myself reflected
    in my childhood fear
    From Within

    If I don't do something about this
    I know it'll be my bane.
    We all live in a World of Madness
    But I'm the only one who's insane

    In the darkness in front of me
    Two eyes as cold as ice
    I step closer and embrace her
    Heeding the Guide's advice

    Fear turned to Friend
    Now at the end
    She smiles at me, fades away
    And will never haunt me again

    Running through a thousand doors
    as towers of despair begin to fall
    My dearest one is waiting for me
    Atop the tallest one of all

    Running through a thousand doors
    With my dear one running next to me
    The Guide, he says goodbye
    While eating Chinese food ecstatically

    I don't know what even happened
    And I'm too happy to complain
    We all live in a World of Madness
    And we're each and everyone of us Insane
  • Verse 2
    Gotta carload of carbs and Pokemon cards
    Venture Brothers DVD and my dicks on hard
    Which is very awkward cause I’m at my brothers funeral
    And I don’t have a brother, excuse me, I gotta go

    Hop into my El Camino bumpin’ Miley Cyrus
    Hit a massive speed bump and now I’m pissed
    Cause the speed bump was a dog and that dog owed me money
    And that money was supposed to pay for my new Humvee

    And my moms really mad and my dads are both dead
    And my uncle’s just a creep and won’t get out my bed
    And my aunt is an ant and the only person I can talk to
    And BOO I’m a ghost. See that wall? I’mma walk through.

    Fly into heaven cause I don’t need stairs.
    Went skateboarding and the Burger King was there.
    I didn’t know he died. I thought he was a character.
    We’re all getting played by corporate America.

    Chorus 2
    I’m still hungry so I’m hitting up an Applebees
    I want a salad dripping in honey mustard please
    I’d like a German chocolate, cherry dipped milkshake
    I’d like to wash it down with a diet Faygo grape
    I’ve seen the future and it’s so bright that I need sunglasses
    I think it was the radiation from atomic blasts
    And if I survive this meal I’m gonna change my ways, I promise
    I just have to hope that Korea doesn’t bomb us,

    Clap a butterfly between two hands
    Watch it float broken to the ground
    Nothing can be left to chance
    Another disaster for us all

    Because somewhere, somehow
    Order in chaos begets us all

    Flip the switch today
    It's the end of light, you may
    Know
    Caused and effected by you

    Bring me the boom
    A string tied to a cracked wall
    Bring it down too soon
    Soon the whole mountain will fall

    It's an infinite chain reaction
    The gears turn still and may
    Guarantee fate in action
    When a grass blade caves, it may

    Burn someplace, sometime
    Order in chaos begets the fall

    A theory in motion
    A truth in sight
    Even goodness bows
    To a reflected force of blight

    Bring me the boom
    A string tied to a cracked wall
    Bring it down too soon
    Soon the whole mountain will fall

    I know what they'll say
    But it's gonna be okay
    Even deep in hell
    There's a path to heaven's rays

    Bring it on
    I'm waiting, but you'll come anyway

    I can't even see where you're coming from
    I know there's a reason
    To why you're here today
    Oh, chaos
    Oh, pain
  • every passing second takes your pretty breathe away
    and you wish you could to stop the time somehow
    you look back to the good old lovely days
    and you hate every second of what is now

    and you fall on on your knees
    the circle that you lived in is falling apart
    and as you fall on your knees
    it is over before you knew it

    Nobody cares
    No Nobody cares
    Nobody cares
    No Nobody cares

    No Nobody cares

    Stumbling, you learnt to walk to the school
    And next day you fought in the war
    The life passed, you just got dumber than you were before
    The time has a way to forget its pals

    and you fall on on your knees
    people forgot you faster than you think
    and as you fall on your knees
    it is over before you knew it

    Nobody cares
    No Nobody cares
    Nobody cares
    No Nobody cares
    Nobody cares
    No Nobody cares
    Nobody cares
    Noboddy will ever care

    Gone.

    Chorus

    Can't find,
    Past times,
    Lost in,
    Rewind.

    Rending,
    Inside,
    Stuck in,
    My mind.

    Spending,
    Less time,
    Living,
    Outside.

    Binding,
    My head,
    Through life,
    Instead.

    Revise,
    My mind,
    Over,
    Past times,

    Flooding,
    In vain,
    Memories
    With pain.

    Mudding,
    Covering,
    Blocking
    My film,

    Won't find,
    Myself,
    Stuck in,
    Rewind.
