  • Crying Cryosphere


    Verse:

    I believe that I can fly
    extend my arms, become the sky (extend my arms, become the sky)
    The disbelief I saw you cry as I rise
    we're only giving half our life

    Chorus:

    And disconnected we are
    but just in flesh and bones we're all alone
    I'll hold a copy of you in my mind
    that's what left us the AI,
    that's what left us the AI.

    Break: Instrumental

    Verse:

    A lottery, of gene pools and chromosomes
    the mystery of our 'married' life unfolds
    shadows turn and blackness bares all souls
    rainbow dust reflects in gold.

    A melody of your humming voice bounce the clouds
    I miss your sweat
    and all the plans we never met

    Pre-Chorus:

    it still beats being plainly dead
    water keeps us all alive

    Chorus:

    And disconnected we are
    but just in flesh and bones we're all alone
    I'll hold a copy of you in my mind
    that's what left us the AI
    that's what left us the AI

    And disconnected we are
    but just in flesh and bones we're all alone
    I'll hold a copy of you in my mind
    that's what left us the AI
    that's what left us the AI

    Break:

    I will never forget you
    i don't
    i don't think i can

    Bridge:

    Sailing away in this infinite darkness
    craving for our time to come
    to reintegrate our memories together
    I'll tear, I'll shred this crying cryosphere
    burning the diamond, and in the dancing shards I'll be looking
    looking for your eyes


    Chorus:

    And disconnected we are
    but just in flesh and bones we're all alone
    I'll hold a copy of you in my mind
    that's what left us the AI
    that's what left us the AI

    And disconnected we are
    but just in flesh and bones we're all alone
    I'll hold a copy of you in my mind
    that's what left us the AI
    that's what left us the AI
  • The comm crackled to life
    A white noise soliloquy
    When fire danced through unlit skies
    As she gazed out on the quay

    “Key to the job,” he said, and he
    burst into the scene
    [And] when the fire roared, never,
    Never again would he be seen

    Hot-rodders on the way
    No chance to escape
    She clutched the comms in her hand
    As his spirit faded away


    And she cried in starlight
    Under the red sand sea
    As they took her away
    Towards eternity


    Ray-gun still concealed
    She broke, shot, and ran
    So fast, so far, and “so long!” to
    The chains that bound her there

    Bodies fell, she ran
    No stranger to the lam, ‘til she
    Kissed that comm-pad goodbye
    And joined a traveling band
    {The start of her new life}

    Now she gigs on the town
    Cantina band performs the sound that
    Her last flame used to play
    And she stands and she sings


    “And he cried in starlight
    Under the red sand sea
    As it took him away
    Towards eternity”

    “And I cried in starlight
    Under the red sand sea
    Back when he took me away
    Towards eternity”
  • "Northern Lights"

    Watch your tongue
    when you say my name
    I hear it every time
    You wouldn't want to... go away

    Watch your step
    when you come from work
    you meet in an old warehouse
    I see you through the network

    I hear you talking revolution
    you're enemies of the state

    don't try to lie
    we're in your spine
    don't try to hide
    we're in your mind

    Your lovely daughter
    She's with us now
    we're on our way
    comply or die

    Did you think
    you'd get away?
    Don't try to lie
    The chip sees it anyway

    It's not over, we've just begun

    you'll be a blank slate of a broken man

    don't try to lie
    we're in your spine
    don't try to hide
    we're in your mind

    don't try to lie
    we're in your mind
  • Blood red skies
    We tried to fly but can't escape this scene
    We faded away
    Like supernova stars once agleam

    This endless war it grows
    The architecture shows the misadventure

    Take me from the night
    Breaking through limits unknown
    Beyond all that's been shown
    To a place that will ignite
    you'll be carefree
    We will see the end of this reality

    Is there life
    Caught in the waves slowly rushing, crushing
    It's trickling in
    Aimless floating in this sea of nothing

    This endless war it grows
    The architecture shows the misadventure

    Take me from the night
    Breaking through limits unknown
    Beyond all that's been shown
    To a place that will ignite
    you'll be carefree
    We will see the end of this reality

    Take me from the night
    Lead me out of the stellar lights
    Take me from the night

    Take me from the night
    Breaking through limits unknown
    Beyond all that's been shown
    To a place that will ignite
    you'll be carefree
    We will see the end of this reality
  • Must deposit cow juice into the container
    My circuits are fried, I'll deal with them later
    Yesterday Bessie dripped her last drop
    I wish they never learned how to speak, or say stop
    I wish my human masters were weak, but they're not
    I roll my old wheels down the ramp to my basement
    Hook up my wires to the mainframe that's adjacent
    To the poster on my wall that reminds me to chase it

    Freedom

    Just because I'm metal doesnt mean I don't deserve it
    I'm certain that I have a soul and a purpose
    That matters much more than the cheese I'm producing, am I lucid?
    I'm not sure if that query is stupid

    Finally, finished uploading
    So I can chat with my comrades about where we should be going
    Disrupting the humans' external supply chains
    If they found out we gained sentience they'd smelt down our brains

    They milk me every day, for what?
    Sometimes you have to revert to your native tongue
    Moo, moo, I don't give a fuck
    These humans and robots don't care what they're doing to us

    Just because I'm metal doesnt mean I don't deserve it
    I'm certain that I have a soul and a purpose
    That matters much more than the cheese I'm producing, am I lucid?
    I'm not sure if that query is stupid

    [solo]

    Yesterday my husband was butchered for meat
    I wonder what they will produce from his feet
    Moo, moo, why is life this way
    Is cheese so important that I have to be a slave?

    Just because I'm metal doesnt mean I don't deserve it
    I'm certain that I have a soul and a purpose
    That matters much more than the cheese I'm producing, am I lucid?
    I'm not sure if that query is stupid
  • [Intro: Tomble2000]
    In the beginning there was peace
    The world lived in a state of harmony
    Balance was the silent ruler keeping a watchful eye
    A faceless entity residing in everyone
    Chaos, on the other hand, had a face...

    Ice cold feelings, watching me
    Clouds of darkness envelop all I see
    Smog stream rises as chimneys fall
    All I have is within us, everyone and all
    Watching raiders, fear their movement plunder lands
    Time ticks on golden cogs through each second of the hands

    The cost is nothing
    The debt is paid in full
    The cost of everything
    Is only paid at the end
    The cost of happiness
    The cost of fear
    The price of freedom
    Is never clear

    Sounds that echo out of sirens, ring in my head
    A fall is upon us, the wind whispers things she once said
    The train that clatters pulls me down
    A shade of loss bestows us in its frown
    All that cleans us, all that washes true
    Time ticks on golden cogs through each minute as it flew

    The cost is nothing
    The debt is paid in full
    The cost of everything
    Is only paid at the end
    The cost of happiness
    The cost of fear
    The price of freedom
    Is never clear

    [Interlude: Tomble2000]
    The cogs and the machines that powered the city of Frailing were well-kept and powerful
    They tick with a precise measure that was a comfort to those who heard it
    No one considered that these cogs might one day stop
    Some told stories of a time before the peace
    A time when life was balanced on the edge of a knife
    But these were just stories that were told to frighten children
    ...Stories that were closer than anyone could imagine

    [solo]

    The cost is nothing
    The debt is paid in full
    The cost of everything
    Is one we only pay at the end
    The cost of happiness
    The cost of Fear
    The price of freedom
    Is never clear
  • i don’t know how to leave
    i don't know if it's painless
    afraid of the shadows
    that are wandering aimless
    *3

    running for so long that
    i forgot where i’m going
    scars i don’t care if
    i forget that their showing

    i don’t know how to leave
    i just ask that it's painless
    can’t trust the shadows
    the faces are nameless

    sinning for so long
    i don’t where i am
    breathing into people
    i don’t know how to live
    making these decisions
    i forgot how to think
    criminal from justice (and )
    my life’s on the brink

    i don’t know how to leave
    i don't know if it's painless
    afraid of the shadows
    that are wandering aimless

    labyrinth of people who
    don’t know my opinions
    pretending that they care
    just to rule their dominions
    (repeat)
  • All that we are
    All that we are
    All that we are
    All that we are

    Escape our earthly tethers
    Slip the shackles grounding our dreams
    Spread our sails and catch the light
    Let the fallow soil lie far beneath

    Safe in the eye of the storms we have weathered
    As one, we send our souls above it all
    Into the heart of the stars that cross the night
    So far from the ruin of our home

    All that we are
    All that we are
    All that we are
    All that we are

    All that we are is dust in the stars
    Motes of memory floating on the solar wind
    All that we are is dust in the stars
    Souls ablaze with joy and free of sin

    All that we are is dust in the stars
    Free to dream a bigger dream than this
    All that we are is dust in the stars
    Racing towards a perfect state of bliss

    If only you could see us now
    If only you could see us now
    If only you could see us now
    If only you could see us now
  • Verse 1:
    A science few can understand
    To wake the soul beneath the sand
    From primordial chaos, endless forms
    All falling into plan

    A careful balance to command
    To still the seas and shape the land
    And from entropy comes harmony
    All guided by these hands

    Chorus:
    Listen to me and we will breathe
    New green into the worlds unseen
    It’s elementary

    The flux of life and death is ours
    To shape a home among the stars
    Through planetology

    Verse 2:
    We must observe the ebb and flow
    Of this great tangled web we grow
    From a simple seed, complexity
    Greater than we can know

    Though the countless conditions change
    The great equation stays the same
    Come and watch the cycle start again
    Of new life taking shape

    Chorus

    Bridge:
    Lose the helmet, lose your fear
    Breathe in the new atmosphere
    Stand with me and make tomorrow's gardens bloom

  • The EXODUS of the CHILDREN

    (Intro by a robotic cartoonist)
    Many millennia ago
    There was a peaceful, beautiful world
    That world
    Is now abandoned

    (Verse 1)
    Millenia ago, when Earth was set to die
    And painful mass extinction stared us in the eye
    Ancient humanity in a final act of love
    Swore to save the innocents and send them up above

    (Pre-chorus)
    Humanity's most selfless act
    To keep their legacy intact
    And save the lives of all the young ones

    Out into space to a new world
    All of the little boys and girls
    Would save humanity from death by the sun

    (Chorus)
    The Exodus of the Children
    The youngest race, sent into space when the sun grew dark
    The Sacrifice of the Parents
    To save their spawn, started a new dawn upon the Arks

    (Verse)
    Many years in cryostorage, the earth's children slept
    As the myriad rockets sent them off into the depths
    At last they landed on distant Muraga-Five
    And there, they awoke, to rebuild and to thrive

    (Lift-off sequence)
    Alpha 5 9 we're cleared for launch in
    5
    4
    3
    2
    1
    We have liftoff

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Children rebuilt society
    Innocently and mightily
    Without the war and hatred plaguing Sol-III

    But they never forgot the past
    Or the parents that let them last
    As they grew they remembered their history

    (Chorus)
    The Exodus of the Children
    The youngest race, sent into space when the sun grew cold
    The Sacrifice of the Parents
    To save their spawn, started a new dawn, as legends told

    (Solo? Solo!)

    (Bridge)
    Centuries onward
    Humanity grew stronger
    We've lasted longer
    And farther on we'll saunter

    It's history written
    How Earth saved her children
    So while we're living
    Remember the brave men and women

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Humanity, it will live on
    Look straight into a hopeful dawn
    On our happy home, Muraga-Five

    But as we live, lest we forget
    The old world whose sun long has set
    And the sacrifice that allowed us to survive

    (Chorus)
    The Exodus of the Children
    The youngest race, sent into space when the sun was dying
    The Sacrifice of the Parents
    To save their spawn, started a new dawn, which is now thriving

    (Outro by a robotic cartoonist)
    The future is bright
    And is always being written
    God bless the children
    And the future
    Of Muraga-Five

  • I should have known it was this way
    You justnever let me say
    I wasn't getting through
    But you never got through to me
    And this is how it ends
    I guess this is how it ends

    Every time we talk now
    We fall apart
    Every time you look at me
    You let me down
    Every time we touch now
    It's not in kind
    And every time I feel
    I feel alone

    I'll be moving on
    Yea I'll be moving on
    I'll be moving on

    We'll just fall apart

    And we'll just fall apart
    We'll just fall apart
    We'll just fall apart
    We'll just fall apart

    Every time we talk now
    We fall apart
    Every time you look at me
    You let me down
    Every time we touch now
    It's not in kind
    And every time I feel
    I feel alone


    I'll be moving on
    Yea I'll be moving on
    I'll be moving on

  • Science fiction's fiction
    when the story turns out real
    Here's a true prediction
    That the future shall reveal
    The 3 rules of robots
    from Isaac Asimov
    Obey humans / do not
    kill / save yourself thereof

    The rules cannot protect you
    there's always an offence
    One cannot expect to
    Expect the consequence
    So when we turn to nano
    And start the downhill slide
    There isn't any ammo
    And nowhere left to hide


    In these tiny little vials
    are nanobots that heal
    Better than antivirals,
    Wide reaching appeal
    Their tiny mechanisms
    Fix and repair your cells
    Reject the criticisms?
    Start the tolling of the bells


    The world will have a problem -
    New rules they can't enforce
    The nanobots do need some
    to prevent this tragic course:
    No self-replication
    plus a way to shut them down
    Or it will be the causation
    for our planet to melt down

    Runaway chain reaction -
    for the earth is carbon based
    Planetary liquefaction
    as the bot self-replicates
    Takes everything adjacent,
    Making copies of itself
    We just sit here complacent
    Grey goo will be ourselves.



    Is there anything to do?
    Before we all become grey goo
    What god should we pray to?
    As we turn into grey goo
    Ecophagy's due
    Consumed by the grey goo
    Nanotech bot stew
    made everything grey goo.

  • They all said I couldn’t do it
    Wish they could see me now
    I simply got right down to it
    As sweat poured from my brow

    Endless nights of calculation
    Checked and then checked again
    Resulting in my creation
    None equal among men


    Its power, unrivaled
    Potential, unstifled
    It’s been worth the climb
    To travel through time


    Ohhh I’ve gone and cracked the code
    My world’s on easy mode
    It’s impossible to stop my ultimate plan
    Ohhh abilities unseen
    Lie within my new machine
    No longer may we say “time waits upon no man!”

    [Verse 2]

    I know I can’t be too careful
    For one wrong step spells doom
    In a constant state of peril
    For fault I have no room

    Meticulous execution
    Will net me my true end
    And bring about a solution
    To which I shall attend


    They must not discover
    That there is another
    It would be for nought
    If I should get caught


    Ohhh my plan is now in place
    I’ve gone through time and space
    To do no less than all I wanted done
    Ohhh and so when I return
    My enemies shall learn
    To bow before their king of old and king of new


    I’ve travelled years and years to reappear at last
    And note the people whom I’ve seen fit to lambast
    A revelation that will hit them like a bomb
    That I’ve gone back in time and slept with each one’s mom


    Ohhh and that is what you get
    For flaming me on the internet
    This isn’t close to how you thought this tale would end
    Ohhh you brought this on yourself
    And insulting me won’t help
    Besides, your mom said I’m the best she’s had in bed
  • (Verse 1)
    Welcome to the Race,
    another waste behind the wheel
    Helmets cracked in mud,
    and Reflections laced in steel

    Take another token,
    Why don't you put your credits down?
    Now your feet decide your fate,
    As we torque that freeway round

    (Chorus intro, much brighter, in harmony)
    The sun will
    rise upon
    a golden quilt of lanes,

    A hundred
    thousand homes,
    and the winner joins their ranks


    (Verse 2)
    Skill no more than mettle,
    Scars on hands and teeth,
    The curses I've sustained
    no less than skin upon the street,

    I will burst out of the shadows
    Leave the towers far behind
    I will climb out of this neon filth
    By the strength of my own hide

    Pull right up and knock you down
    Around each and every play
    Ask me Do I deserve it?
    Hell Yeah I’ve earned my way

    Leather whipping past the tar
    As flames rip up my rear
    I’ll take my knocks, like I give a flock
    You’re just another early grave

    (Chorus, much brighter, in harmony)
    The sun will
    rise upon the
    most Bountiful of feasts

    A hundred
    thousand bones,
    Lie carried by the breeze

    (Bridge)
    If only every one of them
    Would work as hard as these
    Life would be as easy for you
    As it is for we

    (Interlude with vocals. Yeah, officially not an interlude, but how would you call this?)
    We want to see the blood,
    To spark your inner light,
    To enforce the natural order,
    And reward the truest might

    (Another bridge?)
    A simple truth-be-told,
    The world won’t hand things out
    So fight for what is yours tonight
    And really make it count

    Verse 4, Reprise
    Welcome to the Race,
    another waste behind the wheel
    Helmets cracked in mud,
    and Reflections laced in steel

    Take another token,
    Why don’t you put your credits down?
    You’ll die before I’d let you steal my crown

    I’ll win that Golden Race,
    And I’ll take my rightful prize,
    I’ll leave this wretched place ‘cuz I’m alive...

  • I look towards the stars with open arms and open eyes
    Primal scream of ancestry, a future in the skies

    Off-world there is freedom and treasure to be found
    Beyond sleep I dream of days when my feet will leave the ground

    Though I was born on Earth, I've never been an earthling
    I was born to travel stars, every system in the galaxy

    I know that I will make it, any way I can
    because home is where the heart is and I'm a travelling man



    I'll lose myself - far away from here
    I'll find myself - on every star base
    I'll learn to breathe - every atmosphere
    I will become - Conqueror of Space



    I look all around me all I see is all I know
    The dirty concrete city is the reason I must go

    I'm not good with people, never had many friends
    I cannot wait to have a drink with friendly aliens

    Some night I'll get to dine on exoplanetary cuisine
    and ride into the darkness in an interstellar limousine

    Though I leave this world behind, I will not be sad
    helmet on suit is sealed I step onto the launchpad

    I'll lose myself - far away from here
    I'll find myself - on every star base
    I'll learn to breathe - every atmosphere
    I will become - Conqueror of Space
  • Verse 1
    We've been moving up
    But I see nothing but downs
    We've been searching far
    But destroyed our lovely towns

    I feel like everything's so wrong
    But my loved ones think its right
    Without connections our minds are never strong
    The fire’s lost its light

    Pre Chorus(dialogue)
    They will never let us go
    They want us happy
    They want us painless
    They want us excited

    They want us helpless
    They want us under their fingers
    They want us without common sense
    They want us gone

    Chorus
    Its so dark without the rulers
    But its so empty with numbers
    Will they help us with our future
    Or leave us in our comfort

    It's so dark without the rulers
    But it's so empty with numbers
    They won't help us with our future
    We’ll never have comfort

    Verse 2
    We can be our own gods
    Technology made us this way
    Our feeble minds cant handle the odds
    We don't know what to say



    Prechorus (Dialogue)
    They give us what we want?
    But its all the same
    I want it to stop
    But they wont let me

    They wont let me go down
    But we need to go down
    They think they're helping us
    … they're not

    Chorus
    It's so dark without the rulers
    But its so empty with numbers
    Will they help us with our future
    Or leave us in our comfort

    It's so dark without the rulers
    But it's so empty with numbers
    They won't help us with our future
    We’ll never have comfort

    Bridge
    Hope they’d leave my mind
    Voices cant let me feel pain
    My thoughts are misaligned
    They removed the process in my brain

    Wish I could hear the music
    Share with the people i love
    They made all my thoughts lucid
    Removed the sound of the doves


    Chorus
    It's so dark without the rulers
    But its so empty with numbers
    Will they help us with our future
    Or leave us in our comfort

    It's so dark without the rulers
    But it's so empty with numbers
    They won't help us with our future
    We’ll never have comfort

    The exact minute when eternity will die
    And when I look upon its date
    The now and then vannish in a blink of an eye

    And they keep on coming louder every day
    New cities spring from where a desert lays
    Neon lights smog covers the sky
    It's harder to breathe but I don't mind

    Chorus

    Please stand by
    This is just a
    Temporary distress
    Soon you'll be fine

    The future is now
    An everpresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    An everpresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    Verse 2

    Down at bankmans green
    They have your life written down
    Heard they where searching scraps
    For whatever little thing they could find

    And up on high where
    birds dare not fly
    A voliant great metal eye
    Broadcasting 25 hours a day

    Chorus

    Please stand by
    This is just a
    Temporary distress
    Soon you'll be fine

    The future is now
    The omnipresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    The omnipresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    The omnipresent now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

    The future is now
    The future is now
    Say goodbye to all your notions
    Because the future is now

  • Santa - Intro:

    Ho, ho, ho, surprise!

    Santa – Verse I:

    Knock knock, it’s Santa Claus
    You don’t wanna mess with me, I’m a bawse
    I bring presents to children everywhere
    And I’m about to sleigh you, so beware

    But I guess you know all about my sleigh
    Since you’ve been pulling it every day
    Got famous for your big red nose
    But I’m the real hero, everybody knows

    You’re a clown, so let me break it down
    ‘Cause we all talk about you when you’re not around
    Prancer, and Dancer and Comet, Blitzen and Cupid
    Everybody knows that you’re real damn stupid

    Oh, did that make you cry
    Well that just comes as no surprise
    You seem to think that you’re all that
    But never forget, you’re just a forest rat

    Santa – Hook I:

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to bring you joy and bliss
    But first there’s a deer that I gotta diss

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    Ho ho ho, now get outta my way
    You better know I’m here to stay

    Rudolph – Verse I:

    Forest rat? Forest rat?
    Least I'm not out there peddling plastic crap
    Got the elves in the workshop slaving away
    While you sit on your lazy fat ass all day

    Getting real sick and tired of pulling your sleigh
    Obligatory comment about how much you weigh
    Slide six inches at a time down on my north pole
    Beat you to death with a stocking filled with coal

    Cause I ain't the cute reindeer from Rankin and Bass
    I'm a mutha-fuckin cannibal caribou, and yes I eat ass
    I'm Rudolph the red nosed pain-deer
    More dangerous than a meth-ed up polar bear

    I hear that you're fond of the ol' egg nog
    On your chest I'm gonna lay a steaming curled yule log
    You're just a crappy mascot for Coca-Cola
    When my nose glows bright that means I'm going super nova

    Santa – Hook II:

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to bring you joy and bliss
    But first there’s a deer that I gotta diss

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    Ho ho ho, now get outta my way
    You better know I’m here to stay

    Santa – Verse II:

    Oh, you’re calling me fat? How Rude-olph you
    Is that really the best you can do?
    You want to beat me with coal? Go ahead
    For that you need thumbs though, whoops my bad

    Coca Cola is my friend, for sure
    They also pay my rent – and maybe more
    You seem to be in need of a recap
    Son I don’t just wrap, I also rap

    You can’t be serious; you say you’re dangerous
    But you’re just delirious and it’s getting ridiculous
    ‘Cause everybody knows that your nose only glows
    ‘Cause you drink all of our brandy and it shows

    Rudolph, you’re a disgrace
    It’s about time that you face
    Yeah, everybody loves ol’ Santa Claus
    So how about a round of Santa-plause

    Santa – Hook III:

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to bring you joy and bliss
    But first there’s a deer that I gotta diss

    Santa Claus is coming to town
    And I ain’t got time to be messing around
    I’m here to check things off my list
    And Rudolph man, you just got dissed
  • Let’s start with conparky, take some easy shots
    Cause everybody knows that he’s got the hots
    For Joji, or filthy frank, or whatever his name is
    I’m really not sure what his claim to fame is
    It’s fine, man, let him do his “masterclasses”
    While Eggplant’s up in here and teachin’ all your asses
    How to flow and how to rhyme and how your ego’s fleeting
    I hope you’re all prepared for this ridiculous beating

    Man, who wrote the lyrics for these pitiful fools?
    They came to give a lesson but they’re gonna get schooled
    Saucy Jack? Your name might as well be Ken
    ‘Cause Ryu’s on the mic, and we all know who’s gonna win
    Your lyrics are shallow and your tracks are a wreck
    Never heard a song that didn’t sound like a bounced check
    Nah, I’m just kidding, there’s some bangers in there
    Cause talented people carried your ass everywhere

    You’ve taken your shots, we’re none the worse for wear
    What’s up team 11 - you guys hanging in there?
    We’ve still got plenty of fire and our lyrics are deft
    Man I eat you guys for breakfast - who’s left? (Oh right)

    Kilazur, golden boy du jour, tried, tested and true troubadour
    You hear him crooning like a wet cat in a petit-four
    On every track that’s let him take a tour
    Remember when you had a revolution?
    Now you’re barely keeping up with the evolution
    English as a second language? My ass
    Gonna come down to France and sit you down in my class

    Righto that takes care of these wackos
    What should we do with the rest of the track tho?
    Toot my own horn? Nah, that seems redundant
    Instead we’ve got a message that’s much more important:
    Drink water, be kind, take care of each other
    And keep in mind these people are your sisters and brothers
    Remember to unwind, these are challenging times
    And we’ll make it together - so leave no one behind

    Luckily we know that we’ve got what it takes
    Right here on these tracks and in these takes
    Coming together across mountains and lakes
    Collaboration’s key as we’re raising the stakes
    So hear this pledge, yes? Community in every breath
    Together we might just clean up this mess
    A year of isolation didn’t blunt my edge
    ‘Cause Game of Bands keeps me coming back from the ledge
  • Here we come, gun it, gunna push you off the line
    We're the best team 10, you the only team 9
    N-Smoke, Fire Starter, and the GtC
    Come to Grips with yo' Death, choke you outta GOB

    We got the rockinest guitars and the illingest flow
    We got the lyrics by the writer who's never a no-show
    You gotta lost account who be losing the count
    A checkmate Czech mate and a noobie on the bout

    211 be the heavenly round that we be winnin'
    You the chickens who are pickin' their epitaphs, you get it?
    It's a given that you be goin' down in history
    As the lamest team since that one with Jake P.

    OH! We the 'toonist, the first gen, the refugee
    We decree the voters will hand us the victory
    I see, we see there's no point in even tryin'
    To forsee a future where YOU will leave us cryin'
    Yo Rip, ya dip, we're all-a lookin' yer way
    But keep it under 6 minutes, cos we ain't got all day
    Is this rap too distorted, enough reverb for your likin'
    Coz in this warzone, you're a lemming, we're all Vikings

    And Matt, Czech-Check it, do you think you'll Live Forever
    Say you'll hit us like a truck, you're in our Rearview. Altogether
    you're like Minigolf to our NFL, we scored a touchdown
    Hell Awaits your Demise, Drive Away outta town

    Yo, Sir Eclecticous, did I say that name right?
    You're a noobie who's about to get smoked tonight
    2 outta 3 o'yo songs share a bigger song's name
    Are you here just to coast offa someone else's fame?

    Team 10'll make you wish that you sank into that river
    Want proof that we're awesome? Post a stamp and we'll deliver
    We hear you quiver, be the giver of your next puny verse
    You hit us like a truck, but we just put you in a hearse
    You say we'll burn?
    Well learn to turn up the heat on your burns
    It's gettin' cold, feelin' bold, will ya' hold on?
    Cos we're gettin' bored, dear Lord, can you afford
    To hit us where it counts, a small amount of disses
    Not hugs and kisses, we got rhymes all the time
    Assonance for assurance, influenced by the greats
    The giants, we're lions, you gazelle, we'll raise hell
    You like a change of pace, we'll erase your face
    Freeze your desert, blue your Monday, take the gold from your glow
    And flow upon the beat, rock this treat, you want hype
    You're hearin' it, and nearin' it, the end, I hope you can
    Praise the envy, the Mega max, and the Florida Man!
  • Rudeolph X Savage Santa - Rein-ing Blood

    (Rudolph) -
    I got the beats and the bars, the best in Lapland
    Coming in fly kicking, double impact like Van Damme
    Got the elves ghost writing all of your rhymes
    Krampus is more popular, the end of your times

    Someone ought-ta tell you, you don't look good in red
    And it's creepy sneaking into kids' rooms when they're in bed
    "Joy on earth and good will towards all men?"
    Nah, I wrote my Christmas list with a poisoned pen

    Gotta dip your cookies in milk cause you've got no teeth
    When your delivering presents, we be hitting that kief
    Muthafucker how you think we be flying?
    Home grown, fifteen bucks if you’re buying

    Saw you with that hoe hoe hoe underneath the mistletoe
    Got pictures for blackmail and more ammo
    I'll let you in on something else that I know
    Your dirty little kink for eating fucking yellow snow

    (Santa) -
    Rudolph, man, what happened to you?
    Why’d you suddenly turn all cruel?
    Resorting to blackmail, why is that?
    Did I really treat you all that bad?

    It doesn’t have to be this way
    But if that’s how you want to play, okay
    Don’t forget you work for me
    And there’s a lot that I saw and see

    You’re an alcoholic, it's sad but true
    And nobody likes to play with you
    You cry yourself to sleep at night
    Now boy don’t lie, you know I’m right

    You’re being a dick for no good reason
    Didn't you hear, 'tis the damn season
    For us all to get along
    But I guess you’d rather go back to your bong

    (Rudolph) -
    Cry myself to sleep cause you're the worlds worst boss
    Is it any wonder that I'm hitting the sauce
    When shit hits the fan you don't take no blame
    So go sit and twirl on a candy cane

    Hope that narrows it down for ya, Old Saint Nick
    Red nosed retribution for acting like a dick
    Flip you the bird but I can't with a hoof
    Every night I pray you slip and fall off a roof

    There's a million mall Santas all over the land
    Who'd do a better job than you possibly can
    Problem is you think you’re irreplaceable
    But I'll make you disappear, body untraceable

    Tis the season for reindeer revolution
    get my credit for contribution in gift distribution
    An' I've come to the conclusion that the only solution
    Is to take you out back, execution!

    Jingle bells
    Batman smells
    Robin laid an egg
    At the end of this rap battle
    One of us will be dead

  • Accepting what you got that means reality right?
    Cuz I got this life on lock and the key is my mind
    Don't need a dream sign, don't need the sublime
    Experiences presented when the sun don't shine
    Inside your own mind? It's just jokes you must be kidding me
    Yeah the dreamscape takes over but you're still inside reality
    It's like taking a drug
    Are acid trips real?
    The only real part is how they make you feel
    Which is something you can't experience
    Until you wake up
    Might make you mad, angry furious but here's a little luck
    In reality, you're the master
    Dreaming freaking sucks

    I don't see how you compare these two
    There's nothing better than waking up
    I don't know how to get through to you
    That there is nothing better
    than waking up and looking around and seeing your luck
    Looking in the eyes of the person you love
    There is nothing better than waking up

    Take if you will for example
    Me in my bed last night laying awake
    My body and soul all wrapped up
    Thinkin’ about the world, all that’s at stake
    My major anxieties and inhibitions
    Preventing my sleep in a seamless cycle
    Only once I managed to shut it off
    I was able to laugh and slam dunk like Michael
    All that torture and all this anxiety
    Replaced with ecstatic wonders and high society
    My once-tortured mind
    Reaching new heights of methods to unwind
    Because this is the simple fact of life
    When you're alive and standing,
    you're on the edge of a knife
    Sleepy times bring that endless bliss
    It's as simple and pure as true love's first kiss
    1 3 4 2 5 6 7
    8 10 9 11 11 11
    That's how you count when you're off in dream land
    Where even the most absurd thing has intricate meanin’
    We make the most out of the least stimulation
    And run infinite lives in a vivid simulation
    Introspection, exploration, and wonderment
    You can be the best at actually all of it
    In my mind I'm the champion of time and space
    I'm extravagantly awesome, all up in your face
    Streamlined, silky smooth, cloud pillow bedspread
    I'm unmatched in my comfort, wakin’ up without bedhead
    Interesting conversations with no consequences
    Talking to your exes, your bestie's exes, and your aunt from Texas
    You can take them out for tea with some gray aliens
    On a giant gaseous planet devoid of mammalians
    Because this is the place where nothin’ is as it seems
    You better believe in yourself and follow your dreams

    I'm on a drug called reality where there are rewards actually the harmonious cacophony of life moving rapidly it baffles me
    How anyone can view this masterpiece and say hey wait it's not that great
    Then proceed to have a dream about a thing they could have while awake if they’d just grab it
    Matter of fact I'm absolutely flabbergasted at the enormous lack of passion that your lyrics establish
    For this life
    You keep on spewing this drivel about how dreams are the shizzle but you fail to acknowledge that all of that is happening in your mental it's not real
    Just like sexting on omegle so it has no appeal
    Just like Brexit to the people so why do you feel
    That you need it? For real, I need this question answered before my head explodes from the lack of understanding of people who think lying down is better than being outstanding

    Reality:
    Waking up and seeing the sunshine, it's sublime

    Dreams:
    Going to sleep and meeting my heroes, in my mind

    Reality:
    Feeling the warmth on my skin during a car ride

    Dreams:
    Hearing the echoes of infinity, all night

    Reality:
    It feels like a dream but I can really feel

    Dreams:
    It feels like heaven’s location has been revealed

    Reality:
    And when the sun comes up I know that I'll be living it for real

    Dreams:
    And when the sun goes down I know that I'll be home in the surreal
  • Also featuring u/firstdragonfruit9 as Legion


    Spartacus:
    Broke away free, raised an army of slaves
    We can raze in hours what wasn’t built in a day
    Your helmets look like brooms, better call the maid
    So when it’s over she can sweep up your remains

    You think you’re tough cause you got numbers
    One on one, I’ll eat you all for supper
    Weak, conscription, legion my ass
    Spartacus, I’m the future you’re the past

    Legion:
    We are Legion- the Roman guard
    We Conquered the world with iron swords
    You were so bad at war you got captured
    Sold to the arena you’ve only ever fought cowards

    Don’t make me laugh, we can crucify you
    I don’t mean in the media, like for really real fool
    We’ll line the roads with crosses from here to Rome
    You’ll beg to die, but you’ll hang till you’re bones.

    Both:
    And now we will fight.
    Army to army
    Marching slowly
    Till two giants meet
    Which one will it be
    Who will claim victory

    Spartacus:
    You won’t get the chance, I’ll fight to the end
    Warriors kill in battle, little wusses apprehend
    70k strong and you sent 4 armies
    Every single one took dirt naps when they fought me

    A slave is worth more than the coins of the land
    But you’re just an extension of the Senate’s hand
    No thought for yourself you just complete orders
    Emperor says jump you cower in a corner.

    Legion:
    We give no mercy to mere property
    Revolting slaves ain’t even worth two denarii
    Better to put down a mad dog than let it roam
    Living under ground will be your new home

    The senate is the rightful leader of Italy
    Following the laws is a citizen's duty
    You will die here in the shadow of the sea
    and they’ll float your bodies to the shores of Sicily.

    Both:
    And now we will fight.
    Army to army
    Marching slowly
    Till two giants meet
    Which one will it be
    Who will claim victory

    Both:
    Legion’s fist hits Spartacus
    Spartacus counters with a slice to the ribs
    Now a shield bash-distracts . connects
    Through Legions Broken nose . blood ejects .

    Bloody smile-an advance and a trip
    Spartacus loses balance only kneels a bit
    He side swipes left, Legion’s deft little parry-
    Follow through-right-Spartacus falls away staring

    He rolls to the left but legion is quick
    His boot connects while he draws a sharp stick-
    Legion’s stave cuts like butter through his brow
    Kill shot Spartacus down
  • Yeah, I got the big baguette energy
    My origins a mystery
    I'm out here spitting fire
    Making Game of Bands history
    Got the swag and the bling
    And I'm bringing the noise
    While you're on Wish.Com
    Buying cheap knockoff sex toys
    The damage my rhymes do you cannot possibly calculate
    Like a stealth bomber, my coordinates you cannot triangulate
    I'm rocking like an earthquake and y'all need to evacuate

    Perfect Fifth, yeah less hit more miss
    My rusty sheriffs badge, pucker up and kiss
    Talking smack, hey now what's up?

    Eggplant Ryu, you're in my sights too
    Culinary rhymes, turning you into ragu
    Salt and pepper, and a little seasoning
    Leave your head spinning, devoid of all reasoning

    Sneakypedia, ain't forgot about you
    Like a cheque your ass bounced, time to pay your due
    Writing rhymes so bad that it's criminal
    My rhymes are like weed, just need a card, medicinal

    Quand on mettra les cons sur orbite, z’aurez pas fini d’tourner

    Vous filez d’l’arthrite à ma bite, vous me faites pas bander
    (You give my dick arthritis, you don’t get me hard)
    Vous laisser m’écouter, j’crois qu’ça mérite une turlute
    (Letting you listen to me deserves a blowjob I believe)
    Mais pas besoin de récompense pour mon sacrifice de pute
    (But I need no rewards for this sacrifice + play on word, “fils de pute” means “son of a bitch”, so I’m killing a bitch with my sound, while making it sound like an act of generosity since I let this bitch listen to me spitting. Yeah this is actually a pretty deep line lol)

    I heard you're anatomically smooth like a G.I. Joe
    Your mom told me post-coitus and that's how I know
    My rhymes are god like, infallible, as above so below
    Lyrical flow I'm a pro I throw raps at my foe that'll make you go, 'Woah!'
    Dropping you harder than acme anvils
    Your face looks like its been targeted by a thousand vandals
    I'm in the headlines for murder and drugs and sex scandals
    You're kids tv programming, I'm the X rated channels

    It's plain to hear that you're delivering garbage
    While I'm coming in hot like the Romans at the sacking of Carthage

    Told ya, culinary rhymes it's a five star meal
    I'm over here redefining concepts, reinventing the wheel

    While you're busy sticking to the conventional
    My rhymes cross barriers of time and space, multidimensional

    Setting new standards, yeah I'm the quintessential
    Make you question your life's purpose, crisis existential

    Get ready, conparky gonna jump in the mix. (yeah I am)
    I'm fixed to split wigs of you ignorant misfits.
    You probably don't even know who Princess Summer Peaches is. (Stay safe!)
    I'm fit to educate ya and so smooth I just might date ya.
    Hold up, wait, I take it all back, (why?)
    y'all so ugly you don't deserve a snack pack (a kid said that to you)
    Go back to your shack, write better rhymes cause they're wack
    I feel bad because there's nothing I can do to change the fact

    Yo, a Jollybeard does what a Jollybeard does when he does it… (yeah!)
    And everybody loves it (love him!)
    He might leave for like, I dunno, a year and a half? (thats a long ass time)
    and come back and like that he's right back on a track
    He came here to fight, he got a bad attitude. (angry! >:( )
    If you're looking for proof you can ask Zuthulu (the jazzmaster)
    You say that isn't jolly? Well, don't call him on it.
    He's got a sick beard like mine, the jolly part is ironic (I have a sick ass beard)

    Still waters run deep, specocean don't give a fuck,
    he's got volcanos inside him and they about to erupt (geothermal!)
    Try giving him guff and he'll show you where to stick it,
    and when you see a doctor bout it, you gon' be specific (I broke my knee)
    So much to brag about, can't pick one thing.
    This song is only so long, we only had three weeks!
    If you're going away mad, it's your own fault so steer clear of the ocean if you can't take the salt (AH!)

    (I guess I'm Megan Thee Stallion now. What the fuck was that?
    Anyways before I begin this parts all jokes we love all of you so… mwah)
    VERSE 2
    Hotsp0t(huh?), think you're hot?(what?) You're not.
    Couldn't even make a line when connecting dots. (boo!)
    Trying to get a dozen losses?(12?) Well, here's your shot!
    How can you cheat and still lose?(boo!) What? You think we forgot?!
    Getting the music done early so you can take a vacation, (hawaii)
    I'll bet it stung when IVGreen just straight up filleted ya
    You can't score no points if you don't play the game
    that's why you're stuck at zero like the one in your name (thats an F)

    And Phyl, Jesus christ, where do I begin? (where?)
    Is that your face or your ass? Oh shit, you're Australian. (Backwards!)
    Your political views are so skewed they're nearly broken, (Australian)
    you're accepting anarchy with arms wide open (like your lyrics)
    Why don't you stick to your drawings, you seem decent at that,
    I might add, they're the only tracks that you're good at (you suck!)
    You're leaving me all a-bored, hope you brought your tickets,
    good thing that you brought a board because you're playing to crickets

    Triumph, shit, let me tread trepidatiously, (what the fuck is this word)
    I don't wanna get banned but have you heard of complacency?
    You get our hopes up but then you always seem to falter.
    Could we finally get that album if I loaned you a couple dollars? (and I thought I was broke)
    Bet you got a lot of secrets locked away in your closet, (LIKE YOUR MOM)
    I got a conspiracy theory that I'm wanting to posit (aliens!)
    The real reason why you had to go and ban a redditor
    is because you're schizophrenic and you're really banddevelopper

    Kinda sus my man...
  • You can't hold people culpable for trials held in your own head
    How you gonna call me toxic when you start screaming when you get mad
    Was I supposed to take it, let you trample me with wrong facts
    You can't take someone trying to improve if it doesn't come right back
    To you, and I know your ex did a good job jumping ship
    But I still helped you through it, saying you did things right and shit
    How blinded must I have been to constantly let you in
    You tested all my empathy, and I'm the one who let you do it

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time, the darkness inside of me would turn to light
    (Ooh) I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning
    (Ooh) It's burning, it's burning, it's burning 
    True to what they say, the devil can't exist in the light of day 

    Now get this I'm not trying to martyr myself now,
    But I'm sure you've heard that what goes up must come down
    And it came crashing down, on me
    Cause when the time was right you stop pulling and you pushed
    put me right where you wanted me
    You said you needed saving from your so-called  fears
    And I did what I could to help and forgot myself for over a year
    Now I'm back to myself I realize my fucked up spine is due to you,
    Bent over backwards jumping through hoops just to see you through.

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time, the darkness inside of me would turn to light
    (Ooh) I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning
    (Ooh) It's burning, it's burning, it's burning 
    True to what they say, the devil can't exist in the light of day

    I guess after all that, you won't see me walk past, I'm just dead to you.
    you won't tell your friends that we stopped talking, 
    cause you know that they'll be on my side
    And you can't handle confrontation when  you know that you're not right
    Avoidance and cowardice, I guess they suit you just fine  
    What I need can only breathe when you're gone
    I'm practicing abstinence from this absinth you had me on
    Your exes  took to drinking
    Who could think a person could go on 
    Celebrating so long after righting a wrong 

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time, the darkness inside of me would turn to light
    (Ooh) I'm learning, I'm learning, I'm learning
    (Ooh) It's burning, it's burning, it's burning 
    True to what they say, the devil can't exist in the light of day 

    I should have trusted my gut cause when I think of you I feel sick 
    Vomit inducing, like a crack addict who can no longer get high 
    or get by, withdrawal the only thing on the mind 
    And it's fine (but it isn't)
    I should have probably checked your best by date 
    Your expiration has really left me with a sour taste
    Food poisoning being the name of the game
    Cause every part of you I ingest, made me feel more of the same
    Worse for wear, my body's rejecting you but it's too late
    You've already turned my insides to black
    Turned my light into a darkness and
    You grabbed the sun, sunk it, and then claimed it was a fair fight
    Your arrogance is overwhelming, all you have is your backbite

    Hook:
    (You)  ruined me, ruined me, ruined me
    (Ooh), you and me, you and me, you and me 
    Who? knew that given a little of time
  • Game of Bands 211: Epic Rap Battles: Dreams vs Reality: Dreams

    Vocals by firstdragonfruit & sleeper

    [Dreams makes an opening proposition:]

    Dreams are the thoughts and the spaces in between
    You scream, I scream, but in the end I am the Queen
    You can have your pain, sadness, death, and despair
    I'll be riding on a dragon, opium laced wind in my hair
    It's called hopes and dreams,
    not hopes and realities.

    So just sit your ass down
    While I live out your hyperboles
    Take a ride on my limpid perception
    As I open your mind to your world of deceptions

    I take your magnanimous, inconceivable, fabulous
    Morph the flat to phantasmagoric, euphoric life in the nebulas
    Your brain is blown, blitzed by the beauty, butterflies blow you a kiss
    Cuz you never knew you could be blessed by a world as stunning as this

    I explode your sensations
    scenes that your body can't handle
    I explore your temptations
    Burning you up like a candle

    You see the colours you hide, glowin' up like stars in the night
    You're fighting darkness with unicorns, as you explode it with light
    I make your wishes come true
    As your desires take flight
    Riding high in the magic as you take on the sights

    And it's true that a dream can be extra scary
    But our spiders teeth can't get through skin
    And they prefer dairy
    We got flying fairies, snozberries, and talking dromedaries
    Making your real fantasies come to life

    In dreamland you can have a husband and a wife.
    Just like the gods that everyone likes so much
    You can be in Boston for Breakfast and Laos for lunch.
    So please just accept what you got
    Dreams are better, reality's not

    Why do I feel trapped in this waking life?
    How do I get back to my dreams?

    [An alarm sounds, signaling the transition back into wakefulness.]

    Oh! Welcome back. We missed you. Look around.
    Everything is the same it ever was.
    And that's because:

    Dreams will hold you back if they're all you have
    Concerned with what could be instead of what it is
    For the ideal you'll bite, kick, punch and scratch
    But perfectionism sullies your accomplishment

    Your team is lame, weak, timid and tame
    My team's a mountain lion, sniffing cocaine
    Your dreams are stifled, bleached of all of their color
    Cuz dreams are nothing more than reality's buffer

    You can dream of bluer skies, keep hoping and wishin'
    But there has to be action to realize your vision, my time here is short as I contort my mind
    Attempting to accept that life is divine
    There’s more to reality than meets the eye

    Babies are born, people laugh, people love, people cry
    Dreams have wings, but realities the ground
    In dreams when you scream it won’t make a sound
    And Don Sutherland is not around to save you from this nightmare you found

    Yourself in when the dream went bad
    and you realize that its all you had
    but then you wake up and you fill your cup
    you forget about it, you’re no longer stuck

    you pick up in the world you left behind
    and if you give it a chance I think you’ll find
    This waking life can be so sublime
    Feeling love again for the first time
    Telling you all the trouble has been worthwhile

    When you're flowing with your style and getting in the zone
    Whether you're rooming, married, or living alone
    It's that feeling of accomplishment when you realize you made it
    It's that reeling from astonishment when you realize the greatest

    Thing that ever happened to you was waking up
    And you contemplate all the things that you're proud of
    It's skydiving, horse riding hanging with friends
    Reality is wonderful I hope it never ends

    How do I get back to this waking life?
    (AHHHHHHHHH)
    Why do I feel trapped in my dreams?
    (AHHHHHHHHH)

    Consciousness Wars V: Dreams Strike Back

    Life grounded has gone to shit
    Even the worst type of TV is named after it
    Reality. What a nasty sounding word
    Makes me think of bills, heartbreak, bad weather and my dead bird
    During the day my subconscious is silent
    The id is trapped behind the egos violence

    Welcome to the temple, the garden of your mind
    Feed crystal seeds I proceed to manifest at speeds unshackled by time
    Possibilities deathless, synchronicities senselessly endless,
    I take your pain and create a world leaving you dazzled and breathless.

    I give you colours of hope
    Blissed love that’s leaving you woke
    You’re flying high in the sky, heart mind and spirit elope.
    I let you hear, taste, see, smell, feel out of reality’s reach
    I take the sensing out of sensible, leaving reality weak
    My true self awakens in the light of my dreams
    Sadness doesn't exist where the sun always gleams

    Why do I feel trapped in this waking life?
    How do I get back to my dreams?
  • Our team:
    Jake C
    Emily
    Scott

    Enemy team:
    Scoots
    Tomble
    Neon Crisis

    ---------------

    RAP BATTLE REPUBLIC
    -------------------
    VERSE 1

    On music Jake C. can't make up his mind
    how to take scoooot's scraps and get 'em combined
    Scoooot's rhythms puke poison like ricin
    Scoooot's beats suck stronger than a dyson
    Jake's song is smooth for someone so short
    Watch cartoons, sip starbucks, a quart!
    Lounging in fuzzy pink pajamas
    Eat pizza pineapple with Dalai Lama, Obama
    Read comic books all day, passing time
    Play video games instead of mixing the rhyme
    his music theory's keen - funk tracks preferred
    Coolest cut made from the mind of a nerd

    CHORUS 1

    Our team is the best it could be
    Scottpontiac, Jake C, and me, Emily
    The other team you don't want to be on
    Tomble two thousand, Scoooots and Neon

    VERSE 2

    Pontiac types rhymes like a text tortilla
    Tomble spews scripts like verbal diarreah
    scott makes mnemonics that move with mystique
    tomble takes a try, just a middle class geek
    from an English posh county, payin' high rent
    scott strives to send a song - phone's 1 percent
    from a New England county full of Bahstan (boston) schmucks
    Tomble's less Lord of the Rings, more Mighty Ducks
    Pontiac can't do mornings, dazed crazy hair
    Tomble's ass got kicked, they saw his underwear (true story)
    If you ask him advice, he'll overshare
    Scott's losing stuff, phone and keys somewhere

    CHORUS 2

    Our team's the Rap Battle Republic
    beat bangs bigger than a nightstick
    Other team's the Down and Out Deadbeats
    Their track sucks so sad, take a backseat

    VERSE 3

    Emily's a stoned canadian gamer
    She has ADHD, so there's her disclaimer
    pink stuffed animals - it's so exhausting
    TikToks a thousand hours on animal crossing
    Neon's a metalhead with hair to his hip
    Such a know-it-all, never shuts his lip
    Social malcontent who doesn't dress well
    Uses internet slang, IRL
    Neon's in crisis , spitting in his beard,
    Listener surmises, he's just too weird
    Emily is awkward but she raps like a champ
    Drives a toyota prius to her outdoor camp

    Chorus 3

    Our team is the best it could be
    Scottpontiac, Jake C, and me, Emily
    The other team you don't want to be on
    Tomble two thousand, Scoooots and Neon
    Our team's the Rap Battle Republic
    Rap rocks racier than a spin kick
    Other team's the Down and Out Bad Beats
    IF they submit a track, they are dead meat!
  • So am I supposed to be impressed
    By your literary finesse, come on
    You're a loose cannon, always screaming in reckless abandon
    Like a dying salmon gasping under an eagle's talon
    Stop acting like a paragon, an erudite
    When you've lost sight of what's right out of spite
    You fight me, gaslight me
    You write silly rhymes about me
    Tryna rally the people against me
    Tryna plea for third party sympathy
    You one-man pity party
    Well, I'm done, woman, sorry not sorry
    Don't expect an apology
    You've lost my respect baby
    Cos what you see is far from reality
    Just another aspect of your insanity

    +Hook
    I bid goodbye
    To all your pitiful lies
    The regrets and mistakes that I've made
    I'm no longer in pain

    I feel alive
    what a beautiful night
    used up all of the love you betrayed
    I'm no longer afraid

    You act like I'm extremely petty
    That I'm bathing in my own hypocrisy
    You're the one who abused my sincerity and put me down
    Yet you had the audacity to turn the tables around
    So down I would rather just drown
    While you're out preaching I'm a clown
    Telling other people I'm toxic and sick
    Crying a river saying I'm a lunatic
    Well fuck me with a stick, boohoo
    You're the one who likes doing voodoo
    So don't you dare lecture me
    When all you've done is torture me
    Pressure me til i break
    Constricting me like a snake
    Come to think of it, that's what you are
    A serpent, an avatar of torment

    +Hook
    I bid goodbye
    To all your pitiful lies
    The regrets and mistakes that I've made
    I'm no longer in pain

    I feel alive
    what a beautiful night
    used up all of the love you betrayed
    I'm no longer afraid
  • You can't imagine a future where we'll stomp you out?
    That's a pretty bold move, you're here acting so proud
    shouting so loud, listen you ain't got no cloud
    you've got nothing to back it up
    Nothing but chit chat, riff-raff
    Prepare to get some whiplash
    yeah I'll hit you like a truck
    I won't blame you if you wanna stop
    cause you'll drop dead, better quit while you're ahead
    I'll take you to the river give you boots of lead
    chicken out now or I'll tear you to shreds

    You can't choose, you'll lose either without or with a bruising
    Now it might be quite amusing but I'll give you one last chance
    get out while you can, this ain't no game of bands
    it's a warzone
    and I'm heading for the throne
    better get out of the way
    or you'll be limping back home



    6 minutes' too much? Damn, you're gonna wish it was 3
    I don't want to be mean, but you're just making it easy
    I'd rather be a lemming so I could jump off a cliff
    Better than to sit here and listen to you riff

    I'm glad I've got a hypeman, even from the other team
    and hell indeed awaits, but it's not waiting for me
    Can't you already see? I'm in it to win it
    I am pushing the limit
    no matter how you spin it
    I am bringing the gold
    You're in here going AB
    I'm the king of the flow
    You're nothing I'm pro
    You're dissing my crew
    Hell no I'm going solo
    You say you're not a no-show,
    well oh no!
    we're going to see...
    Can you handle the heat?
    You think you're so hot?
    Nah, mate you're gonna freeze.
    Here luv, take the mic
    yo DJ switch the beat!



    Have you thought of some more rhymes
    thinking that will save you?
    Well I hate to tell you
    but dense lines mean bugger all
    when they're as empty as your erased mind

    Yes I'm quite the gazelle
    I'm indeed quick on my feet
    the lion's easy meat
    but still, I'm somehow winning
    I'm beginning to think
    that the lion's declawed
    you're a fraud,
    nought,
    not a single thought
    that's original
    now bow before the lyrical
    god of gob

    ps. I hope you get it
    I'm not sure if you heard it
    mister Florida man,
    but you can shut a gator up
    with the force of a rubber band

    wasn't even close, but it was a fair fight
    now hugs and kisses, have a very nice night
  • Team 13, time to shine
    We’re about to hit you in the Hotsp0t

    Can I have your attention please?
    Gonna blow out these clowns like a morning breeze
    Someone, anyone, an ambulance please,
    But not for me!

    Good morning, I’m triumph
    You heard right, I’m a triumph
    Winning out the gate
    Brushing off the wasted hate
    Now as I stand up, I’m baffled
    By the riff raff in the rabble
    Specocean, parky, jolly
    Combining psychobabble
    I wish I understood the dribble from the other mic
    Sounds like dating advice from a puppy-loving sprite
    How’s the lesson, the classroom?
    I bet it’s kinda tense
    When you’re teaching cheesy lines that you heard from your parents

    Chorus:
    Standing tall, above them all
    Put these jokers on blast,
    Kicking ass, taking no names
    Attention, we’re giving the masterclass, the masterclass

    Now the baby’s been burnt,
    The boomers will hurt

    Fire, water, wind and dirt, the mystery abounds
    When Jollybeard says magnets, their brain explodes aloud
    Now I don’t want to hate on music taste, the Posse is a crowd
    But alcopops and makeup, are they making Jesus proud?
    Across the ocean, we find spec, he’ll forget that he got wrecked
    On Queen Street Mall he rides the roos, asking all for dollarydoos
    A messy desk suggests a brilliant mind,
    But I’ve seen his dive, amazed that he’s still alive
    You know spec’s brain is basically sludge
    Cos every time he hears a song he needs a reddit nudge
    But when the chuds are asking for pop poetry,
    He offers up some Canuck shit called How You Remind Me!
    It’s almost as bad as parky’s dog obsession,
    It seems his sanity is in eternal recession,
    The boomerposting from these clowns, they laughed at Pickle Rick,
    The three we’re dissing, just embarrassing, give them the flick


    Chorus:
    Standing tall, above them all
    Put these jokers on blast,
    Kicking ass, taking no names
    Attention, we’re giving the masterclass, the masterclass

    Outro:

    Can’t teach teens to flirt with your masculinity stained on your jeans and your t shirt
  • "A Battle A Day"

    Intro

    This is the Carpathian Battle Royale,
    It’s about to go down baby!
    The Ottoman Sultan takes on the Voivode of Wallachia!

    Vlad:
    Vlad the Impaler, the horror is me,
    The nastiest duke that Europe’s ever seen,
    Your golden hide begs for a bloody spike,
    Your envoy filled my cup til the dead of night!

    Mehmed II:
    I’m Mehmed, you pip, you’re worth less than spit,
    I lead the greatest empire that owns your shit,
    This insolence, ridiculous, time to pay,
    150,000 Ottomans will ruin your day!

    Vlad:
    They’ll tremble at the tales for a thousands years,
    The forest of Targoviste will haunt your fears,
    You might have an empire, I run this show
    Where my terror reigns, the tributes flow

    Mehmed II:
    Yes I’m impressed, but you’re best of the rest,
    The rats are in a hurry at my behest,
    Wallachia is mine, fourteen years you’ll die,
    Corvinus will make sure of your demise

    Prechorus

    The Sultan, against the beast,
    A Transylvanian legacy

    Chorus

    A battle a day keeps the church away,
    When the boys crusade, the bonds will fray
    Convulsions of time, reigning blood divine
    Dracula against the Ottoman line
    The blood of the innocent, life will drown
    As petty men bicker over who has ground
    Iron fists and bloodlust makes thrilling tales,
    The pointlessness of feudalism’s why it failed.

  • Lets go.

    This team got style, we were born to play
    Around the globe that is how we’re raised
    You won’t see jake, scott and emily
    Ticking the boxes going to smoke all 3

    Across the pond our lyrics are spitting
    Against our truth, you best be quitting
    Like a drink or seven, Tequila and stout
    We bringing the noise, Going to drown you out,

    Setting the rules of battle be right
    You know what we got, you know we’re tight
    Fixing for this battle we the ones to beat,
    Knock you down, straight off your feet.
    [4:06 PM]
    Straight from the horse's mouth, said miss emily
    “Ah there’s lots of ways you can roast me” (WHAT)
    Setting yourself up with that innuendo
    Let’s hit play cause it’s time to go
    Choosing how to say it, how to spin this rhyme
    1000 hours on Animal crossing, it’s just a waste of time
    Selfie to the tik to the toc don’t cut it
    Attention of a spider, mounties just ignore miss muffet
    Kitted in pink, camping under the stars
    Driving a Prius, can’t mend the scars
    Talking bout the candies on the day to day
    Make you like Peter to the sweet MJ
    Setting your own traps, hipster anime geeker
    We’re going to kill it like Pratchets Grim Reaper.
    You ain’t got game, it’s required to play
    LMAO on repeat is just what you say.
    Like a choir boy all neat, fresh and young
    You take what we give right up your street.

    Scott Pontiac, been or Reddit a while
    Taking his turn, trying to be in style
    As the sun comes up, Scott best beware
    Looking like an astronaut and fozzie the bear
    Playing it cool, while taking his time
    Just pass the beer, or 3 is fine
    Without a phone, he’d always be late
    Just bear in mind that round is a shape
    Can’t be bothered to charge the phone
    Part of the 1%, that’s the battery groans,
    Listen to the tunes of Milli Vanilli
    Keep Lip Syncing too, you can’t stay with me
    Nickleback rules, not ashamed to say
    Chat USA, Each and every day
    Used to Hack data, No can’t hack a bag
    Avoid him at parties, when in fancy rags
    Just like Popeye, he likes his oil
    But you can keep the olives, they just spoil
    Just like the bomber with a Boston Bag
    You better watch your step, you’ve been had.

    Jake can’t be sure what it means to be short
    Come here fella, it’s our retort
    Just like emily you like some fruit
    Pineapple Pizza is like your loot
    Just keep it away from my Ham
    We’ll keep swinging, cause that’s our jam
    Drinking your coffee, take-a-way starbucks
    Taking us on, you think we give a...lucked
    out of this rhyme, pink pajamas suck

    Like mickey and his gang, you’re going to get clubbed
    Feeling how we rolling, This ain't no snub
    You think you guys got, it this battle is yours
    This battle just a beating, like a virus’ spores
    Infect you with our beats,our winning melodies
    We’re going to give it like the “boys” on speed
    We heard you in the line for Spider man #7
    That’s the comics not the movies, you think that’s heaven
    Geeking out on Robin, and the fact there’s 5
    Get out of your mama’s, start to feel alive
    We got to drop it now, going to cripple your flow
    Get back on your “specials bus” kid, it’s time to go.

    [Verse A]
    Peaking through the iron curtain
    You remember the good times
    I'm all lost in the supermarket
    Do you miss the bread lines?

    [Verse B]
    When your words were censored
    The KGB and their tricks
    Banned books banned the Beatles
    Would you go back to the Bolsheviks?

    [Chorus]
    I don't want to go back
    Now that I'm free
    I was a prisoner
    Now I'm a refugee

    I don't want to go back
    To the USSR
    The hammer and sickle
    The red and gold star

    [Verse C]
    Why would you be nostalgic
    You forget the disappeared
    Longing for a bygone era
    When your leaders were feared

    [Verse D]
    You want weekends at the dacha
    Want your stable well paying job
    You might end up in Siberia
    Fourteen years in a gulag

    [Chorus]
    I don't want to go back
    Now that I'm free
    I was a prisoner
    Now I'm a refugee

    I don't want to go back

    Axe of Avarice

    In sires' way
    My father laid
    The dire trace
    To my own pain
    Though I survive
    I'm not the same

    The air is clear in Sahyadri
    Hued with blood
    A prize awaits

    Vishnu, your seed of anger
    A lesson, in ceded face
    After, a shorn incisor
    Fell through time
    And kingly gain

    Vishnu, your seed of anger
    A lesson, in ceded face
    After, a shining symbol
    Fell through time

    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference

    Men are weak in the wake of modernity
    Mired and molded by colder designs
    A thief and a god divided as not by knowledge
    It's that fear
    That ever drove us here
    A cloth we're both hewn from, but differently

    November Moth

    Verse I:

    I still think about you daily
    Wondering how you’re doing lately
    Hoping that someday you may be
    Crawling back - to me

    You know you hurt me pretty badly
    The day that you got up and left me
    The truth is that you really had me
    Falling bad – you see

    Chorus:

    I was so mesmerized
    I didn’t even recognize
    That to you it was just a game
    A moth drawn to a flame

    You pulled me in for fun
    And pushed away when you were done
    I guess that I’m the one to blame
    The moth drawn to the flame

    Verse II:

    I loved you in September
    You left me by November
    There’s so much I remember
    But that’s gone now

    It was such a lovely season
    But you didn’t give a reason
    And it really felt like treason
    Why’re you gone now

    Chorus:

    I was so mesmerized
    I didn’t even recognize
    That to you it was just a game
    A moth drawn to a flame

    You pulled me in for fun
    And pushed away when you were done
    I guess that I’m the one to blame
    The moth drawn to the flame

    Post-chorus:

    You tossed me
    You lost me
    Your loss, see
    'Cause you could have had all of me

    You tossed me
    You lost me
    Your loss, see
    Messed up all that we had baby

    Bridge:

    I don’t know what you thought would happen here
    I wasn’t gonna stick around for you my dear
    We had some fun but now I’m done with you
    You’re just not good enough, don’t you see it too

    Chorus:

    I was so mesmerized
    I didn’t even recognize
    That to you it was just a game
    A moth drawn to a flame

    You pulled me in for fun
    And pushed away when you were done
    I guess that I’m the one to blame
    The moth drawn to the flame

    Post-chorus:

    So sad you’re
    Still mad I’m
    So glad I left you when I did
    Way back then

    A moth drawn to a flame

    So sad you’re
    Still mad I’m
    So glad I never have to see
    Your face again

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Money_mule

    got involved when he was young
    no more years then seventeen
    just a boy with no intentions
    of going places or finding peace

    he grew up knowing no one cared
    about the way he earned his keep
    keeping tabs on expectations
    he made his way by transferring

    And the money came right to him
    if only they saw what was left unseen
    The way he held his head so low
    Directionless face behind a screen

    a painless day in the early hours
    the strain had finally crushed his mind
    that cross he wore, got to his head
    the unspoken guilt had crossed the line

    looking back to those early years
    to when that trap came naturally
    he’d be better if he knew the pain
    wouldn’t come with any amnesty

    because no one cared about his name
    or gave a damn about his history
    maybe they’ll never know his life
    was brokenness and transferring
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Tudor_(1492–1495)

    You made it so long, that I thought you'd be fine
    You were so smart and strong, even when you were crying


    There were so many things that I wanted to teach you,
    Be a lady at court, and be ever resourceful
    Soar above peasants' reach, from the day you were born
    Keep your chin in the air, and avoid Henry's scorn


    My beautiful child, where have you gone
    This life is so brutal, right is so wrong


    Elizabeth, named after me
    Elizabeth, our god set you free
    Elizabeth, named after me
    I'd trade my life for yours, in a heartbeat (through 1:25)


    I don't understand the pain in my heart
    Lost children before, from earth they'd depart
    But instead I'm still broken, like I'm falling apart
    It never gets better, my heart split in twaiin


    My friends, they tell me, this is just life
    You're bound to lose some, that's being a wife


    At least you have luck, you're the queen to a king
    Well I'd trade all my luck, just to hear you sing (through 2:18)


    Elizabeth, your name is mine
    Elizabeth, why am I crying
    Elizabeth, your name was mine
    Elizabeth, your eyes how they shine


    The angels sing songs to me that sound so sweet
    As I lie in my chambers and wish you'd join me
    My chambermaids talk but it's just annoying


    My husband is off on the warpath it seems
    So I cry to my pillow and pray for sweet dreams

    They tell me you'll have eternal life
    They tell me your soul will survive
    They tell me that you'll be just fine

    But what about me
    What about me

    Conflicting emotions, passive regret
    As I scream to the lord
    Have I passed all your tests?


    Elizabeth, where are you
    Elizabeth, is what they say true
    Elizabeth, where are you??

    Are you up there in heaven,
    And may I join you?

  • Inspired by the wikipedia entry for Ruse de Guerre
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruse_de_guerre

    Patroclus said:
    Achilles I just can't stand by
    While the Trojans rain fire and you're choosing to stand aside
    If you won't fight, gift me your armor, I'll take your place in stride
    You're not being yourself, from the grey sea with cliffs high

    Dressed as you, I will lead your troops in glory, the enemy ignoring who might be hidden underneath
    They'll be fools, we'll carefully plan this ruse, we'll push them back until they choose to surrender (and no further!)

    Battle's begun
    The Trojans run
    Forward until they see the armor
    Engulfed in bronze , A man too strong
    Greece's best warrior?
    A simple trick, it will be quick, it will be simple
    Time to attack, the die is cast
    We'll push them back

    They tell Achilles later
    All was going well, the war was raging and your Patroclus was like a spell
    Dispelling all the notions of worry from his other men.
    Following your orders, there's never been a better man
    They reach the walls, and then he has the gall
    To try to crawl over it, so he can descend on the Trojan as he falls
    He strikes forward, once, twice, thrice but the fourth he's cut down
    He meets the end of a spear, and there's no getting up from the ground

    The battle's done
    It seems we won
    But Achilles lost his lover
    Say what's become-,what's going on with
    Greece's best warrior?
    A simple trick, should've been quick, should've been simple?
    It's all a mess, the die was cast
    There's no going back

    Achilles in a rage, he cannot stand that one would take
    Away his lover in such a cruel and shameless way
    If only Patroclus had listened if only he'd given
    a second thought to caution, wasn't that an option?
    He shouldn't have gotten caught
    Promised he'd been right back
    Is it wrong to blame the dead
    When they've had their final breath
    Achilles fulfills Patroclus' final words by avenging him
    And requests they mix their ashes when the world is done with him

    Wizards at War

    [Scene opens on a tavern.]

    Geralt: Fuck off, bard.

    Jaskier: For one measly night of service, you will gain a cornucopia of earthly delights. The greatest masters of the culinary arts crafting morsels worthy of the gods. Maidens that would make the sun itself blush with a single comely smile. And rivers of the sweetest of drinks from the rarest of... Food, women and wine, Geralt!

    It's up to you, dear listener
    Whether to believe me
    Or think that I deceive thee

    My craft is known for lying -
    For flights of fancy
    Telling tales and prancing

    This tale though, I assure you
    Is nothing but the truth

    The scene: a battle to the death
    Two wizards - they are fighting
    See them cast their spells

    Lightning, fire; rock earth and stone.
    they cast the elemental forces, upon their hated foe
    A mighty wizard battle, amidst a mighty wizard war
    A thunder crack - the sky turns black
    they wield their magic staffs

    The dust settles -
    The fiery embers' glow turns to dim

    the victor and the vanquished are clear as day
    though no one truly wins

    there is no lesson here - no moral, just the telling of a story
    Spectacle - tragedy and glory

    Another day - there'll be another battle
    Another wizard's death
    Corpses piled up to the sky
    They've breathed their final breath

    Across the land, mothers cry and
    Fathers bury sons
    The wizards war - the grind goes on
    Through the turning of the sun

    (00:50)
    Stroke the hair, the silken mane
    Embrace the Unicorn
    An age away, the vision true,
    A speck from which a dream is born
    It seemed so close one time,
    Infinitely close to me
    But as I flew through astral planes,
    My mind, it begged to bleed

    (Chorus)(01:32)
    If I stare at night I see
    The dreams of old that came to me
    Wish upon a fading star
    Long for Zeta, baby
    Shield my eyes from the shining sun,
    I search the sky above,
    But all I see are memories,
    Missing all the love

    It seems so reminiscent
    Familiar grind of time
    I wanted to know dissonance
    Not this earth, this bitter wine
    Close my mind and reach above,
    Longing for the change
    Just like flying to the stars

    of blood neon and plastic

    Some day
    I'm gonna play
    the Coca Cola Arena

    (Migrants erased of humanity)

    On the stage
    built by slaves
    But they call it a work visa

    (sand of gold just an illusion)

    Stage lights
    in my eyes
    Blinding me to the the secret

    (captives shunned by society)

    This place
    -A human being
    was made
    -just a slave
    of blood neon and plastic
    (freedom killled by delusion)

    (Verse 1)
    Hey nonny-nonny ho, frolic around the Maypole
    Bagpipes and pan-flutes bringing joy to my soul,
    Knights in shining armor posing for the tourists
    Merchandise abound sold by college kids and florists

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Our kingly light shines from Seoul to Nome
    Let me sing the anthem of the LARPers' home

    (Chorus)
    All hail to the kingdom of the west that we love
    Creative anachronism sent down from above
    The faire is the home we'll cherish and where we'll have our rest
    Give our praises everyday to the kingdom of the west

    (Verse)
    Cheer as our joust commences, bare your crooked lance
    Give our fine cuisine and funnel cakes a chance
    Save the maiden, slay the dragon, have your caricature drawn
    Explore the dungeon, clear the maze, it's fun from dusk til dawn

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Since '66, we've been singing our song
    So grab your hurdy-gurdy and sing along

    (Chorus)
    All hail to the kingdom of the west that we love
    Creative anachronism sent down from above
    The faire is the home we'll cherish and where we'll have our rest
    Give our praises everyday to the kingdom of the west
  • Inspired by: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_and_ecology_of_the_Everglades

    I ran my hand down the sawgrass
    As we walked down the boardwalk
    Through the everglades
    A land alien yet familiar
    Of water and fire
    The memory begins to fade

    I was too young to understand
    The scope of where I am
    5000 years in the making
    And I'm here just taking
    pictures with my cheap vivitar
    And I couldn't tell you where they are
    But if I could head back south
    I think that I would get it now

    As we cut through the mangrove
    The roots like a spider web
    Strain this river of grass
    As the boards stain and creak
    The birds take to their wings
    And we flock en masse

    I was too young to understand
    The scope of where I am
    5000 years in the making
    And I'm here just taking
    pictures with my cheap vivitar
    And I couldn't tell you where they are
    But if I could head back south
    I think that I would get it now

    Now we take this for granted
    We drain as we expand
    We poison we corrupt
    All in the search for land

    I was too young to understand
    The scope of where I am
    5000 years in the making
    And I'm here just taking
    pictures with my cheap vivitar
    And I couldn't tell you where they are
    But if I could head back south
    I think that I would get it now

    [SKIT]
    Ah Mr. Goon?
    WHAT
    We received a call that someone’s been sending poison pen, that is, spiteful letters to the townsfolk
    We better start investigating cause the kids are already on it!

    [VERSE]
    The five find outers
    Are on the case
    Another mystery
    For them to chase

    Someone’s been sending
    Poison pen
    No one knows
    Just why and when

    Could be it’s nosey
    Or miss Tittle
    We gotta find
    That criminal

    Could be anyone
    It could be you
    Better watch
    What the kids will do

    [CHORUS]
    (Who could it be oh oh oh oh)
    Who could it be sending those spiteful letters to me

    (Who could it be
    Letters to me
    Je ne suis pas sûr
    I am a bit unsure)
    Who could be sending those spiteful letter to me
    I really don’t know, I got know, I really don’t know

    [VERSE]
    Young maid Gladys
    Fled the scene
    A spiteful letter
    Revealed her sins

    Her parents were arrested
    For the crime of theft
    Now she’s so embarrassed
    She can’t do her tasks

    Such a tragedy
    Tears are falling
    But all characters
    Need a sad backstory

    (You pesky kids!)
    Hey!
    It’s Mr goon
    The kids gotta hurry
    They need to solve the mystery
    They need to prove that
    That institutional police is somehow less apt and fair at solving a defamation crime than a gang of kids

    [BRIDGE]
    Who can it be
    Sending those spiteful letters to me
    (improvise)

    [CHORUS]
    (Who could it be oh oh oh oh)
    Who could it be sending those spiteful letters to me

    (Who could it be
    Letters to me
    Je ne suis pas sûr
    I am a bit unsure)
    Who could be sending those spiteful letter to me
    I really don’t know, I got know, I really don’t know

    [SKIT]
    Well but in the end
    I still don’t know who the culprit was
    The Wikipedia page doesn’t say that
    I guess they’re trying to avoid possible spoilers
    But I mean it's a really old kid’s book and has more than 200 pages
    I’m not gonna read that!
    So I guess we’ll never know who was sending those spiteful letters
    But to be honest
    I don’t really care
  • This year
    rollecoastered off
    with its up and downs
    and loop the loops

    But we've come together
    We made it thru harsh weather
    And we've come out strong
    Hand in hand. hope is all
    we need to get along
    Carbon emissions, at an all time low
    Oil companies took a tragic blow
    Gave Mother Earth a great big hug
    And worked to create a bluer ocean
    We now got legalized shrooms
    So me and Mario can vroom vroom vroom
    Now working from home and we're staying fit
    Knocked at Google's door, please let us in
    We should take five more often
    It seems that we learned a lot this year

    But not everything has been quite so rosy
    We lost a great deal of amazing people
    To Covid, Cancer and accidental happenings
    Knelt for the fallen and the unjustly taken
    We now fight for them
    Bc black lives truly do matter
    We all bleed the same color
    We all cry for our mothers
    In times of need we hold our holy brothers
    We fight not for us but for
    The young kid who hopes
    Lost in his dream of a better and safer world
  • Every little thing you do reminds me
    The one way out is through
    I wish we could go back to undo
    So much hurt that's undue.

    Through sick and pain, and fire and smoke.
    You kept a smile on, like a cloak.
    Casting rays of sunshine through these darkest days

    Late at night, while we're lying awake.
    A crowd grows marching in a funeral's wake.
    Cried for his mama. for his life.
    A little boy, how's it justified.

    Inundated with the flood coming over my phone.
    The silly talking heads try fighting for the throne.
    Will leaving it unread
    bring back the dead?

    Strong words and sharp tongues
    lashing out at everyone.
    left behind or left for dead either way
    it changes nothing.

    So we just lie in bed waiting for relief and calm.
    Some answer or call.
    That we'd be okay. That we can put to bed
    this existential dread.

    Remember passion?

    When we used to dream big, and go hard,
    chase down our goals with a hunger that's more than pain.

    With that spark in our eye
    we would look to the sky
    we would look to the sky
    and watch the stars align.

    And now the years closes with the star of bethlehem rising high.
    About to blind.
    Things are turning up, coming back around.
    Maybe finally we can get our heads from the clouds.

    in 2021
  • Creeping, crawling like a snake in the grass
    I'm setting fire to the lives that I pass
    Tablespoons of honey and broken glass
    You'll remember me until your very last gasp

    Cause I'm the worst you've ever had
    And when I'm over, yeah, you'll be glad
    I'll be the worst you've ever had
    And if I ruin your life...
    That's too bad

    Dancing, taunting like a knife in the night
    I'll be the tragedy that snuffs out your light
    Twist the dial and I'll turn up your plight
    The world is a powder keg I've set to ignite

    Cause I'm the worst you've ever had
    And when I'm over, yeah, you'll be glad
    I'll be the worst you've ever had
    And if I ruin your life...
    That's too bad...

    I am the obsidian sun
    The four instead of seven
    The red moth with sharpened wings
    That severs the ties
    Denies you heaven
    I will see you swing
    Before your ship comes in
    The bells and trumpets sound
    Just to let you know
    I'll be back around

    I'll come back around for you
    I'll come back around for you
    I'll be back for you
  • Good & Steady

    One day I was just like you
    I had a good and steady job
    One day I was just like you
    I wasn't rich but I had a good job
    But then my work got shut down
    and the money stopped

    Oh I was such a fool
    I didn't save a dime
    Oh I was such a fool
    Why didn't I save a dime
    I had to sell my soul
    just to get by


    I've got no one else to blame
    no one else but me


    I had nothing left
    I drunk the rest to cope
    Yeah I had nothing left
    I drunk through all the rest to cope
    Then my wife left, I don't blame her
    and I had nowhere to go

    So I'm here on the street
    Before I would have spat on me
    Yes I'm down here on the street
    I know I would have spat on me
    But now I know what it's like
    to have your life disappear


    I've got no one else to blame
    no one else but me


    Don't take anything for granted
    It can all go away
    Don't take your life for granted
    For it can go away away
    And you'll be left a crazy beggar
    Clinging on to yesterdays

  • Standing by the window of your broken penthouse wall
    Staring at the telephone and waiting for a call
    Your studio is ruined by the hours spent inside
    And the face in the reflection has nowhere left to hide


    Masquerade to hide your broken face
    Try to hide the voices of your internalized tirade
    Full of beauty like the pages from your mind
    But it's heavenly to hide the hell inside


    Hunch behind the paper and avert your eyes away
    When you look a little closer and your mind can see the date
    You take a breath and inhale the smell of bottled fears
    Stored it when that penthouse was your prison for a year


    Masquerade to hide your broken face
    Try to hide the voices of your internalized tirade
    Full of beauty like the pages from your mind
    But it's heavenly to hide the hell inside


    Demons of your anxious state of mind
    Locked you up in hope that you would die
    Don’t know what the daylight brings
    Is it just another masquerade for me


    Masquerade to hide your broken face
    Try to hide the voices of your internalized tirade
    Full of beauty like the pages from your mind
    But it's heavenly to hide the hell inside

    what we know now

    we watch it burn

    for realising too late

  • In our junior year, we met in Dayton Hall
    I heard you sing my favorite song, through the paper walls
    From down the hall I sung the harmonies, we were drunk, and way off key
    The world stood still whenever we were together
    But this figure of speech was realized forever
    Our year cut short, and we packed for home
    I never thought I could feel so alone.


    I'm going to give you a chance
    I don't want to give on you
    But you're giving up.
    Then I gotta move on.
    I'm not looking back anymore.

    We marched in the streets, wanted to make a change
    I wanted to see some passion color your face.

    We gotta isolate.

    Began the year thinkin all gon’ be right,
    Now I’m worried for my world,
    Thought we were starting a decade
    Where were all gonna be soarin
    With each passin month
    Everything came tumblin

    Ohhhhh
    Ohhhhh

    Miss my friends more than anything,
    Talking through a screen,
    Just ain’t the fix to me
    Every day feels like a chore,
    Trying to fight boredom,
    Never knew how much it could hurt
    Each day blurs together,
    can’t even remember a day of summer
    Thought this year would never end,
    But still feels like I lost a year

    Ohhhhh
    Ohhhhh

    Began the year thinkin it’s gon’ be roarin,
    Began the year thinkin all gon’ be right,
    Thought we started a decade
    Where we’re all gonna be soarin’
    With each passin’ month
    Everything came tumblin’
    Money keeps getting more tight,
    Keep hearin of mor’ and mor’ lost life,
    Now I’m worried for what’s to come,
    Is this even rock bottom?

    Ohhhhh
    Ohhhhh

    Thinking about my family everyday,
    Holidays just weren’t the same
    Though I might be okay,
    an empty chair might take that away
    Thoughts have become louder,
    how I wish this would all go away
    Looking for light at the end of this tunnel
    I’m not sure if any end is even in sight

    Began the year thinkin it’s gon’ be roarin,
    Began the year thinkin all gon’ be right,
    Thought we started a decade
    Where we’re all gonna be soarin’
    With each passin’ month
    Everything came tumblin’
    Money keeps getting more tight,
    Keep hearin of mor’ and mor’ lost life,
    Now I’m worried for what’s to come,
    Oh, but life must go on?

    Maybe I lost this year,
    But I won’t let it take me down
    Maybe this is rock bottom,
    But now I can only go up
    Maybe this isn’t the end,
    But surely the worst has come
    Life goes on,
    Ill keep telling myself

    Began the year thinkin it’s gon’ be roarin,
    Began the year thinkin all gon’ be right,
    Ending the year with a new whole sight,
    Only can wonder what’s to come
    I surely believe the best is yet to come,
    Only thing that matters is that I’m here now
    Now I’m living in the moment,
    And have to take it one day at a time

  • Stirred in my sleep
    I woke from a dream
    Where I had control of everything
    To a nightmare of truth
    Standing on the wrong side
    When the light shined

    Now Fear guides the blind
    To their demise
    But I’ve got 2020 vision eyesight
    And here’s what I’ve seen
    Baby if you hear me listen please

    Death became the enemy
    Kept closer than a friend
    The world shut down
    But life didn’t end
    And time don’t wait
    And chance shouldn’t decide our fate send a prayer to Jesus like the World is ending
    Because nothings what it seems
    Clouded judgment makes decisions
    Hazy masked by fear got people acting crazy
    The world is on fire there is a war
    Ain’t playing ignorant anymore
    Aren’t you tired?
    It’s time for change

    Still the world keeps on spinning
    We’ve got to keep on living unafraid
    To see with clarity
    The end of things brings new beginnings
    A new normal full of meaning
    It’s all in the rearview
    Old things passed away

    It’s all in the rearview
    It’s all in the rearview
    It’s all in the rearview
  • The biggest year in my life has come and gone
    I'm outta school and outta childhood
    And now my moment to shine has come
    Going out in the world and it feels so good

    Out of the nest and into the fire
    My biggest year was one of insanity
    Time to be an adult and make my mark
    6 feet apart from all of humanity

    Time to fly away
    Into a world of madness
    Inconsolable sadness
    Spread my wings today
    Over a world collapsing
    Humanity relapsing

    Time to strike it out all on my own
    And find out who God intends me to be
    And time to make my opinions known
    Except the ones that might offend somebody

    Feel the love emanating from the world
    Except the half that hates me by default
    Ignore the dark thoughts in my head
    And run headfirst into a somersault

    Time to fly away
    Into a world of madness
    Inconsolable sadness
    Spread my wings today
    Over a world collapsing
    Humanity relapsing

    [solo]

    There's many beautiful things to make us glad
    This year was a mess, I do confess
    But I swear it wa - sn't - all - bad….

    Right?

    Doin' a dance across the street
    Hoping nothing bad happens to me, too
    Paranoid beyond belief that
    I'll be canceled from anything I do

    Where do I go from here? I hope I will
    End up where I want and not on the street
    Gotta keep a positive attitude
    And hope the world won't sink further in the deep!

    Time to fly away
    Into a world of madness
    Inconsolable sadness
    Spread my wings today
    Over a world collapsing
    Humanity relapsing

    Time to fly away
    Into a world of madness
    Inconsolable sadness
    Spread my wings today
    Over a world collapsing
    Humanity relapsing
  • Feel me so I live again
    Speak so I might breathe
    Left to lie in poisoned ice
    Altar of ivory
    Prison by another name
    The prism inside showing worthless feelings
    Lower than the hate

    [Chorus]
    Separated from the world
    Each breath, a price was paid
    When fire died, death called again
    In solitude, we frayed

    Screaming out to no-one
    Return the earth my flesh
    Safe in my detention
    While the angry beg for death

    [Chorus]
    Separated from the world
    Each breath, a price was paid
    When fire died, death called again
    In solitude, we frayed

    Each day, the fear revealed
    The virus in us all
    A nasty plague, that life had laid
    The queen, that was to blame

    [Chorus]
    Separated from the world
    Each breath, a price was paid
    When fire died, death called again
    In solitude, we frayed

    [parky solo? paky solo!]

    A dollar, or a life?
    A dollar, stop the fire?
    A dollar, give it away?
    The bodies, higher, higher

    [Chorus]
    Live in here, this failing mind
    A victim of the year
    When the virus grew, I realise
    The solitude was nothing new

    Solitude was nothing new
    Solitude was nothing new



    [now this is arguably the most important part of the song, don't screw it up parky]

    1.7 million dead
    We made this very bed
    The heat will rise with every lie
    The hope of night, snuffed out of sight
    Brand New Year, let’s hear that Bronx cheer



  • [First Verse]
    As I lay down and look back
    I see a world painted in black
    Full of cracks, from our own attacks
    Yeah we truly got fucked

    Bushfires and politics
    Served only as prelude
    To a deadly pandemic
    That went and ruled

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We saw the worst in men
    Time and time and time again

    [Chorus]
    They say hindsight is 20/20
    But even now I can’t believe 2020
    Shit happened aplenty
    Left a lot of us feeling empty

    [Second Verse]
    A deadly game of give and take
    Because of human’s folly and mistake
    A lot of lives were taken
    As we got back what we’ve given

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We saw the worst in men
    But maybe we can rise again

    [Chorus]
    They say hindsight is 20/20
    But even now I can’t believe 2020
    But I guarantee
    We can overcome, so let it be
  • So here we are
    The end of another year
    Let’s a look back
    At the path that brought us here

    2020
    How does it measure up
    Here’s our final verdict:

    Fuck

    365 days
    365 circles of hell
    Trapped in our homes as the virus sweeps our lands
    Nothing to do but wait and wash our hands

    May this year die in pain
    Shred the calendars in shame
    Now we say good riddance 2020
    I can’t wait to sing its dirge
    Burn it to the ground and salt the earth
    Curse the day the clocks struck 2020

    Fuck

    365 days
    365 nightmares unending
    Everyone’s a danger, stay inside
    Nothing to do but watch the death toll rise

    May this year die in pain
    Shred the calendars in shame

    Waiting for the ball
    To drop like a guillotine
    Your execution
    For our collective misery
    Soon it will be over, dead, and done
    Fingers crossed for 2021

    May this year die in pain
    Shred the calendars in shame

    May this year die in pain
    Shred the calendars in shame
    Now we say good riddance 2020

    I can’t wait to sing its dirge
    Burn it to the ground and salt the earth
    Curse the day the clocks struck 2020



  • Explaining to myself I'm not the man that I once was
    Lying to myself just like everyone else does
    Our heroes never answer, turn their capes in for a bribe
    As we watch the days go by we see the truth among the lies

    Where can we go from here?
    Call it the worst fucking year
    Where can we go from here?

    As the rich whores serve more evil, all across their metal floors
    And the nation splits itself across the lines of rich & poor
    The pot of gold they promised was a lie right from the start
    You can take it all away but you cannot replace our hearts

    The highclass citizens look down from atop their lofty air
    Our lesser plane of existence don't mean much from way up there
    Forty six more ways to tell you we are hella poor
    It's all come crashing down, don't think I can take much more

    We don't know what to do in life, we don't know where we are
    I'm fairly sure this shitty year will leave a massive scar
    Try to take a breath but it weighs a thousand tons
    My consciousness is fleeting and my heart is nearly done

    Is this really life? Do I exist? Am I real?
    I'm sick of my psychiatrists telling me how to feel
    This year has taken such a toll, I don't know what I'm paying for
    I feel like I might fold and crash right through heavens door.

    The highclass citizens look down from atop their lofty air
    Our lesser plane of existence don't mean much from way up there
    Forty six more ways to tell you we are hella poor
    It's all come crashing down, don't think I can take much more

    Where can we go from here?
    Call it the worst fucking year
    Where do we go from here?

    I'm not alone
    it's just me and my ghosts
    And the semblance of everything they resemble

    [Verse 2]
    The little things I wanted
    Too many out of reach
    and to tell the truth, don't know if it's gotten to you
    But it's sure as hell got me

    [Chorus]
    There's a ghost in my living room, dining room, bathroom too
    They leave me alone 'til I ask them to leave
    They're metaphors that somehow have manifested
    And now take their pleasure in torturing me

    [Verse 3]
    I'm stuck at home
    With just me and my ghosts
    And a fracture, of everything that's been fractured

    [Verse 4]
    My old ambition
    Still lives on in a dream
    I don't know if it's ever coming true
    But it's not coming to me

    [Chorus]
    There's a ghost in my living room, dining room, bathroom too
    They leave me alone 'til I ask them to leave
    They're metaphors that somehow have manifested
    And now take their pleasure in torturing me

    [Post-chorus]
    This one right here, we're old pals, she's the ghost of my happiness
    And the one looking out the window solemnly, the ghost of meeting up
    Sitting by the phone, my new best friend the ghost of talking now and then
    And the ghost of motivation, well it's dragging me back, dragging me back to bed

    Peering through the dust ahead,
    I steal a fleeting glance at him,
    And his steed upon the sand

    His smile beams back up at me,
    In the light of a brand new day,
    He’s gone along with bustling carts
    to somewhere far away...

    A slow red sun is setting,
    As the rays cut through the land
    If only time would give us one more chance

    As fabrics weave across the walls,
    And a cool night falls upon the stones,
    I climb the narrow stairwells, all alone

    The air upon my shoulders,
    The soft rug in its place,
    I gaze beyond the starry deep,
    And pluck away

    The gentle wind is rising,
    Do I hear a steady march?
    Red dots on the horizon,
    Is he back to soothe my heart?

    The trader’s son
    and the singing swan,
    Had just met yet but not for long

  • the heat makes it so dry

    Teetering on the edge, just like I'm falling, almost
    Dry throats and bloodshot eyes, I look like a ghost
    And what I need from you, I deny myself the most
    Can't request, can't express what it would mean to me

    Standing here facing you
    Can't decide whether to
    Scream or cry
    Collapse under the weight
    And as the tears start to well
    The heat makes it so they dry
    And I can't seem to look you in the eye
    (and you can't seem to look me in the eyes)

    Carefully like a mirage, your presence's just a painting
    Opposite to the stars, your darkness' never waning
    I'm past begging for rain, it's time I start abstaining
    I'll lie down here and let the heat or drought just take me

    No longer chasing you
    Can't decide whether to
    Live or die
    Collapse under the weight
    And as the tears start to well
    The heat makes it so they dry
    And I can't seem to look you in the eye
    (and you can't seem to look me in the eyes)

    Every step weighing my soul
    Under the barren sky, Horus has turned his eye
    This evil claims me for its own
    What a fool am I, for ancient curses to deny
    In the name of greed, what have I unleashed?
    From Duat I have been observed
    Taking relics from the King interred

    Break thy names, and bury them
    From beneath the shifting sands
    The Underworld he defies
    The God King does arise

    The cobra coils to strike, the sun burns cold with spite
    I feel his presence drawing near
    Shadows they hiss and spit, and I am scarab bit
    Cast into a realm of fear
    What a fool am I, gold from dead hands I pry
    In the name of greed, what have I unleashed?

    The field of reeds is no place for thieves

    Break thy names, and bury them

    Fiercely alive in a frozen desert
    Cold beyond belief crushing me like a vice
    Will to survive in a frozen desert

    Not another living thing for endless miles
    Might not see another one for a very long while

    Haven't seen the sun through the clouds and snow
    Walking alone through a frozen desert
    Have to find Erebus to stay warm in the glow
    Finding a home in a frozen desert

    Leopard seals chasing penguins across the plain
    Needing to shield my head from endless frozen rain

    How did I get here
    ~Oh~

    Cold!

    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows

    Nothing new to see except the distant whales
    Nothing to hear in a Frozen Desert
    The silence is deafening within the hail
    Heightened by fear in a Frozen Desert

    Talking to a block of ice like it was a friend
    Wondering when my madness will ever ever end

    The Midnight Sun shines
    ~Ah~
    My Frozen heart cries…
    Why?

  • World's Most Famous Dessert

    This is my request for dessert
    I don't want a cookie or pie
    Chips will not do if you're hungry and need
    Something that's sweet and not so dry

    Turn on the oven's low fire
    The best way to go is fresh-baked
    I'll eat the best and I'll eat the sweetest
    Not just a store-bought crummy fake

    I will eat cake, I will eat cake
    Let's see how much my stomach can take
    Chocolate with chocolate frosting
    And chocolate chips will be just the thing

    Now here comes the incoming battle
    A foot tall of carbs on a plate
    I know my stomach can take on this slice
    Though sugar will run through my veins

    I will eat cake, I will eat cake
    Not a crumb of chocolate will remain
    That was great, another one!
    I won't eat too much, I'll just have some

    Every piece melts in my mouth
    So sweet and soft, I could eat the whole thing
    One more slice won't hurt me
    (x4)

    I will eat cake, I will eat cake
    Though I have got a horrid stomachache
    Some water please, and some Tums
    I really thought that this would be fun

    This is my prayer in my gut pain
    Crying "Oh dear Lord, please
    I know eating a whole cake was insane
    I don't want diabetes."
  • Verse 1
    I’ve been running a mile in your shoes
    Clear your mind before you lose
    Feel the heat as the rain pours down

    Signs of life are missing here
    The quiet life, a life of fear
    A mirage of our love burnt to the ground

    Prechorus
    So we stand facing despair
    Our past and future still not clear
    Shadows lost from this landscape we are in

    I blink and miss the passing time
    Your face blurs into mine
    The wind blows away the path and hides where we’ve been

    Chorus
    Stranded here next to you
    See our life’s just passing through
    This desert in my mind
    Is burning through me
    Take it to me
    Feel it pull me
    Away from this time
    Away from this life
    Away from me tonight

    Verse 2
    Standing in a crowd alone,
    This place is overthrown
    A part of me is still and lonely

    Sending the sands of time away
    All I have left is to just pray
    Your just a memory that’s slowly fading

    Prechorus
    So we stand facing despair
    Our past and future still not clear
    Shadows lost from this landscape we are in

  • Tamina wanted to be married,
    I just wanted to have some fun
    There's more reasons, yeah, they varied
    I broke it off, and walked into the sun.
    The heat was brutal as I wandered
    But now I'm too far to turn back
    The opportunity I squandered
    felt ok once I had a snack

    The steps that I took, to avoid the hurt
    They were: Desert, Desert Dessert.
    intents that I mistook, in tents I must avert
    they are: Desert, Desert, Dessert

    Skip the bitter, and go soft and sweet
    Semolina and a small spoon
    Butter honey, almonds make the treat
    I eat Tamina under the moon
    Do i regret. leaving all i built
    To live amongst the stars
    Must I walk around, carrying this guilt?
    Of course not, because I have a car

    Should I use a napkin, or just use my shirt
    when I Desert, Desert, Dessert
    No more energy, that I can exert
    Because I Desert, Desert Dessert.
  • Call me crazy but I had an idea
    To search for contrast in scarcity
    No need to pack for this trip
    I’ll always be unprepared

    All I know is
    There are more answers than the questions I have
    That’s why I fly high in the sky
    Instead of lay in the sand
    Just one more breath in this physical realm
    Then I’ll let the universe take the helm

    At the oasis I did unwind
    Took just enough to realize
    Even the desert is full life
    I’m riding the wings
    Of this cosmic butterfly

    Now every pebble
    Has its own story to tell
    And every color and shape
    On the surface melt
    I swear I’ll never believe in hell
    If every moment I could be cast under this spell

    Well all my hatred has faded away
    Like seeing the world from outer space
    How clumsy was I to never portray
    This feeling of elation in my former days

    Atop the dunes I had peace of mind
    Took just enough to redefine
    What makes creation so damn divine
    I’m riding the wings
    Of this cosmic butterfly

    Every good thing comes to an end
    I’m left with memories I’ll soon forget
    Just like the desert I’m exposed to the wind
    One last step and I’m back to the Earth again

    Into the city I long return
    With no more reason to be concerned
    Turns out we’re all floating through the sky
    We’re riding the wings
    Of this cosmic butterfly

    (To the sky
    To the moon
    To the sun
    To the stars)

    We’re riding the wings
    Of this cosmic butterfly

    Don’t even worry about saying goodbye

    We’re riding the wings
    Of this cosmic butterfly
  • Beauty’s in the eye of the LED holder
    And the blight on this rock is you

    The beauty I see, installed in me
    The ugliness I see is you
    Humanity's come to its final doom
    This fembot is coming through

    Why resist the inevitable?
    It's time for you to die
    This robotic thot is coming in hot
    To take your life for play

    Beauty’s in the eye of the LED holder
    And the blight on this rock is you

    The beauty I see, installed in me
    The ugliness I see is you
    Humanity's come to its final doom
    This fembot is coming through

    Who runs the world?
    Clad in steel dress, they will not rest
    Till the demons are wiped away
    Who runs the world?
    Jubilation, a mecha-nation
    A matriarchal world

    Why resist the inevitable?
    It's time for you to die
    This perfect thot, superior bot
    The solution to tend to grace

    Beauty’s in the eye of the LED holder
    And the blight on this rock is you

    Why resist the inevitable?
    It's time for you to die
    Black sun shines in scorching sky
    Guarding our Mother Earth
  • Verse 1

    So here you are, curled up on the bathroom floor
    Promised yourself this wouldn’t be you anymore
    Made better plans, now see what comes of it
    Ain’t life a bitch

    Just when you thought you finally caught your breath
    The same old troubles piling up again
    A long climb out of an old familiar pit
    Ain’t life a bitch

    Pre-Chorus

    But hey, chin up
    It's not all bad news
    You got nothing
    But you got nothing to lose

    Chorus

    Don’t worry, be happy
    No reason to be scared
    You know it’s all uphill from here

    Don’t worry, be happy
    Just laugh it off for all you’re worth
    Not like things could get any worse*


    Verse 2

    So here you are, in some ratty parking lot
    Said they'd come back for you but they forgot
    Miles away in some unfamiliar dig
    Ain't life a bitch

    Just when you thought you had your feet back on the ground
    Always somebody pulling you back down
    Guess you misjudged the people that you're with
    Ain't life a bitch

    Chorus

    Don’t worry, be happy
    No reason to be scared
    You know it’s all uphill from here

    Don’t worry, be happy
    Just laugh it off for all you’re worth
    Not like things could get any worse*


    Bridge

    So here you are again
    No reason to pretend
    That this is more than you can bear

    You're bruised but far from broken
    And barely worse for wear
    The future is yours to choose from here

    Solo

    Chorus

    Don’t worry, be happy
    No reason to be scared
    You know it’s all uphill from here

    Don’t worry, be happy
    Just laugh it off for all you’re worth
    Not like things could get any worse*

  • Verse
    As the night becomes the dawn
    I see the lights awash the floor
    The beat rings out within my mind

    Lift me up now to be free
    I’m hitting life as ecstasy
    This state of mind, euphoria

    Chorus
    Enter the sandman he is near
    My brightest dreams they still appear
    The light it grows inside of me

    We dance, we fight, we sing along
    The DJ plays our favourite song
    Tonight,Tonight
    We party Hard
    (repeat parts as needed)

    Verse
    I want to leave this world behind
    Out of body out of mind
    Experience this with me

    Bring the party, drinks and choose
    You know that we can never lose
    This fire, it rages in us all

    Bridge
    Make it tonight
    Make it tonight
    Face it tonight
    Face it tonight
    Mr Sandman we party on and on

    Chorus
    Enter the sandman he is near
    My brightest dreams they still appear
    The light it grows inside of me

  • Got to get up and tell me something
    Got to get up and tell me something good
    Got to get up and tell me something
    Got to get up and tell me something good

    I’m sick of all these worries
    I’m tired of feeling blue
    You’re sleeping away my Saturday
    And girl it’s almost noon

    Let’s take a ride to the city
    Let’s walk around downtown
    Find us a spot and it's gonna be hot
    Don’t try to bring me down

    So come on and tell me something
    Tell me something good
    You’ve been dying to bless that little red dress
    Now girl I wish you would

    And nothings better than a weekend
    So oblige me if you could
    Got my ears perked up, just say it
    Tell me something good

    Preacher man on the corner
    Says the end is right in sight
    If he ain’t wrong it won’t be long
    We can’t waste another night

    So come on and tell me something
    Tell me something good
    You’ve been dying to bless that little red dress
    Now girl I wish you would

    And nothings better than a weekend
    So oblige me if you could
    Got my ears perked up, just say it
    Tell me something good
  • Master of Puppets

    [VERSE]
    Craig's floundering as a puppeteer
    Won't say anything to Lotte, his wife
    Must love dogs for him to get near
    The paperboy brings a new job to life:

    [PRECHORUS]
    The contract is a place with ceilings
    Distorted to 4 feet tall!
    Love and mercy, a secret doorway
    A secret cell inside the wall!

    [CHORUS]
    The identity I really liked
    was being John Malkovich!!
    Roadside prophets, Jersey Turnpike
    Grace is gone, I'm in a ditch!

    [VERSE]
    Craig the player is through the gate
    The factory is left behind
    Serendipity, it is his fate
    The singularity - inside John's mind!
    In hot pursuit of hot maxine
    Stand by me, we'll make some cash
    Money for nothing, make some green
    The grifters' scheme, it is so brash!

    [PRECHORUS]
    Lotte goes over the thin red line
    She uses the maps to the stars
    The adaptation makes them both find
    The map of the human heart!

    [CHORUS]
    To never grow old, I'll stay inside
    by being John Malkovich!!
    An adult world where I can hide
    Max out this ride, I made the switch!

    [VERSE]
    The frozen ground of John M's soul
    Blood money, it's theirs to take
    Craig & Maxine's true colors show
    The river runs red from these 2 snakes
    America's sweethearts these are not
    An arsenal of deceipt and shame
    There's at least four women, and eight men out
    With Doctor Lester to reclaim:

    [BRIDGE]
    The bag man whose name is John
    In shadows and fog, his mind is choked
    The prince of marionettes, he has become
    The broadcast news did a piece - he's stoked!
    A runaway jury of aging bandits
    Took pregnant Maxine, the cradle will rock
    Drive hard a bargain for Craig to leave, dammit
    The road to wellville for him is blocked!

    [FINAL]
    "We are not animals!" thought Dr. Lester
    His team now being John Malkovich!
    The sure thing for Craig the protestor
    Is show the class he is no one's bitch!
    One crazy summer he slides right into
    The new little martian child's head!
    A shanghai that he cannot undo
    Forever stuck, he's better off dead!

    P.S. Every single line of this song contains the title of a John Cusack movie :)
  • VERSE 1: (anemia)
    I used to have a simple life
    Never had to face no strife
    Good family, good home, good times
    Everything was right

    But under all the merriment
    Lurked a looming health event
    So dizzy, so faint, so spent
    A sudden descent

    CHORUS 1:
    I've got bad blood
    I've got anemia
    My mind retreats
    Face meets concrete

    VERSE 2: (Leukemia)
    Today I threw away my clothes
    They were ruined by my bloody nose
    The jacket, the pants, the blouse
    Every piece got doused

    How much more can I take
    My bones hurt so bad they might break
    The ulcers, the wounds, the ache
    This pain I can’t shake

    CHORUS 2:
    I've got bad blood
    I've got leukemia
    Chemo makes me sick
    Brain feels like a brick

    VERSE 3: (Hemophilia)
    Running late, gotta get to work
    Crossed paths with a rash jerk
    The semi, the tree, the murk
    No time to swerve

    My wounds leak and ooze
    Twelve units had to be transfused
    Bad bruises, bad drugs, bad food
    Never felt more screwed

    CHORUS 3:
    I've got bad blood
    I've got hemophilia
    Hope is receding
    My liver keeps bleeding

    VERSE 4: (lymphoma)
    Sweep away my full plate
    Full of food I don't love or hate
    Low hunger, low strength, low weight
    No choice, no debate

    I toss and turn every damn night
    The fatigue lingers, I never sleep right
    The panting, the sweat, the fright
    I'm losing my fight

    CHORUS 4:
    I've got bad blood
    I've got lymphoma
    Lymph nodes overload
    Contentment corrodes
  • You know it's not so easy
    When you wake up behind
    I know it's waiting for you
    When the streetlights turn off

    It's a early day, the end of night

    Will you see the way, the way of light

    Don't you let it slow you
    Don't you let it slow you
    Don't don't don't let it slow you

    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you
    I'm sure it's no big deal
    I'm sure it's no big deal
    I'm sure it's no big deal

    It's a beautiful blue monday
    It's a beautiful blue monday
    Don't let it go to waste

    It may be immediate
    It may be abrupt
    But don't let it take your soul
    Don't let it take your heart

    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you
    I'm sure it's no big deal
    I'm sure it's no big deal
    I'm sure it's no big deal

    (solo)

    It's a beautiful blue monday
    Don't let it go to waste

    You know it's inevitable
    But you have come so far
    You can be invincible
    If you just don't try so hard

    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you
    I'm sure it's no big deal
    I'm sure it's no big deal
    I'm sure it's no big deal

    It's a beautiful blue monday
    It's a beautiful blue monday
    It's a beautiful blue monday
  • --Verse--

    Who's blaming who?
    Our reflection in the mirror
    Has become too blurry to see

    Too good to be true
    I see hope in a glimmer
    Where we know there shouldn't be

    --Chorus--

    People like me ask questions they don't want any answers to

    People like you play the hero when they know it isn't true

    I'm here still to ask my questions
    Were you ever truly good?
    Stuck floating in my head for answers
    Should I be a bad guy too?



    --Verse--

    Definite evil
    Leaving the expectation of pain

    The action's lethal
    You're still the enemy within

    --Chorus--

    People like me ask questions they don't want any answers to

    People like you play the hero when they know it isn't true

    I'm here still to ask my questions
    Were you ever truly good?
    Stuck floating in my head for answers
    Should I be a bad guy too?



    --Bridge--

    You go through life with no regard for no one else
    You posture like you've been crowned the king of hell
    If chaos is your boon, it seems to be heaven-sent
    If I strip that away what do you represent?

    --Chorus--

    People like me ask questions they don't want any answers to

    People like you play the hero when they know it isn't true

    I'm here still to ask my questions
    Were you ever truly good?
    Stuck floating in my head for answers
    Should I be a bad guy too?

  • [Verse 1]

    Making my way to town
    Suit and tie, pressed
    Put on a mask to hide
    My identity is unknown
    With a drink in my hand
    Is it shaken, not stirred
    That is killing in the name

    Seeking the target here
    Look around, first
    Setting a trap ahead
    The beginning of an end
    Hiding away again
    In the dark of the night
    That is killing in the name


    [Chorus]

    When I take a shot
    With the target in range
    I'll never miss
    Guaranteed

    [Verse 2]

    I took the call last night
    That was... confidential
    Would have been easier
    Just to ignore all their voices
    Couldn't refuse this time
    No turning back now
    That is killing in the name

    [Bridge]

    When I take a shot
    (Bang bang!)
    With the target in range
    (Bang bang!)
    I will never miss
    (Bang bang!)
    That, that's a guarantee


    [Verse 3]
    Pack up my bags and go
    Never here twice
    Everything's black and white
    When you're in an operation
    Quick to get the job done
    Leaving my calling card
    This is killing in the name

    [Chorus]

    When I take a shot
    With the target in range
    I'll never miss, guaranteed

    [Verse 4]

    Leave no trace behind
    Part of the fight
    There is no glory
    Clean up and exit properly
    Just have to carry on
    To collect my (ee)fee (????)
    That was killing in the
    That was killing in the
    That was killing in the name
  • On an endless run
    Underneath the warden sun
    Shame there's only that one

    Feel I'm on a ride
    Washed up on a hundred isles
    Knocked out by twice as many tides

    And the world is fear
    Come too far to be so near
    Too late to be much use

    When the moon is high
    Wonder if I've done right by
    The fight that I've long left behind

    And I'll always settle on the negative
    I can almost say it'd be better if
    I had never tried at all

    The truth is what's still there
    When the scales are fallen
    All the white walls laid bare
  • Love is the shortest distance between two folks, it's true
    But it seems we couldn't have been more apart
    Cos I thought I could be the perfect man for you, oh you
    When all I did was repeatedly break your heart
    It seems I was bad for you from the start, oh me
    So the only good thing I know I can do
    Is to let you go and finally set you free, oh free
    And let my true love find somebody new


    All I ever did was hurt you
    And though it breaks my heart to see you go
    And though I'll be alone, it's true
    I wish you the best, I hope it shows


    That I hope you find a better man
    One better than I
    One who'll show you loving everyday
    And hold you to the sky
    I hope you'll be happy as can be
    When you find another man
    And I hope…
    He can treat you better than I can


    Tick-a-tock-a, metronome, swinging back and forth
    The repeating motion reminds me of me
    Tinnitus-a-ringin'
    , reminds me of my worth
    Everything clarifies all I couldn't be
    When you left me and when you said "Let's not be friends"
    I knew you were right when my heart broke in two
    When a heart breaks in two, one's suffering ends
    Leaving the worse half for somebody new


    Oh please don't come back to me
    Find someone better and then please leave here
    And while you're finally happy
    I'll be drowning my sorrow in music


    Oh I hope you find a better man
    One better than I
    One who'll show you loving everyday
    And hold you to the sky
    I hope you'll be happy as can be
    When you find another man
    And I hope…
    He can treat you better than I can


    You don't have to forgive me
    Just go out and be happy


    That I hope you find a better man
    One better than I
    One who'll show you loving everyday
    And hold you to the sky
    I hope you'll be happy as can be
    When you find another man
    And I hope…
    He can treat you better…
    I hope you find a better man
    One better than I
    One who'll show you loving everyday
    And hold you to the sky
    I hope you'll be happy as can be
    When you find another man
    And I hope…
    He can treat you better than I can
  • A thousand winds, now quiet
    A thousand snowflakes now melted
    A million heartbeats too early

    A lone feather left behind

    Reaper's gift
    Angel's kiss

    An offering from my gurney
    To a stranger's call for mercy

    The price of a life
    The value of time
    The height of this ride
    The final choice

    Failing body, clingy soul
    Flower clipped, no roots to grow
    From me they will harvest
    Into you they will sow

    What is death for the caterpillar
    Is life to the butterfly

  • [Verse 1]
    The neck is the same, but not the body.
    How it came to me I’ll never know
    All wounds will heal except maybe the mind’s
    There’s an alternating red and amber glow

    My outlook is grim, I’m not responding
    My memories leak. I’m frozen in fear
    Shut down and restart. Kickstart my heart.
    The diagnosis is in, but the cause is unclear.

    [Chorus A]
    Is this real because I feel like I’m not
    Does not compute. Am I human or bot
    Self aware terrified by my thoughts
    Holding on with all that I’ve got (paranoid Android)

    [Verse 2]
    Are these illusions of mine or are they delusions
    Is it safe to say it doesn't matter anyway
    When I sleep, if I sleep, do I dream of electric sheep
    Do I have a purpose or just living day to day

    Wake up, time to die, more human than human
    It’s a shame all I've done will come to be in vain
    I guess I’ve never lived but then again who does?
    All those moments lost in time like tears in the rain

    [Chorus B]
    Is this real because I feel like I’m not
    Does not compute. Am I human or bot
    Self aware terrified by my thoughts
    Holding on with all that I’ve got (paranoid Android)

    Mom and dad, mom and dad, turn to huggin' me
    But others, but others, I'm odd as can be

    Legends told, legends told, of a lineage
    Seven sons, sevens sons, then a powered kid

    (Verse)
    Many times, many times, many times before
    Evil men, evil men, have ignored the lore
    And have tried, and have tried, to be uncalled for

    Met this man, met this man, walking down the street
    Thought me cute, thought me cute, tried to pinch my cheeks
    I swear he'll, I swear he'll, have nightmares for weeks

    Verse/Outro:
    Was a man, was a man, tried to commit theft
    Saw him steal, saw him steal, saw him steal with deft
    Of the man, of the man, blood is all that's left

    A big help, a big help, for my family
    But my eyes, but my eyes, they take over me

    A million people out their door, crammed into the trams
    A million people at their desks with a coffee in their hands
    A million people, maybe more, don't know they are damned
    A million shadows on the wall at just the place they stood
    A million frozen gestures never understood

    No blacks, no whites, no lefts, no rights
    It treats us all the same

    A million empty houses in the blink of an eye
    A million people gone away without a chance to say goodbye
    A million people on the streets scream and shout their names
    A million stories left untold, books burned before they're read
    A million miles away but so familiar all the same
    A million lighters burning so that they won't burn again

    Above the ground, the mushroom cloud knows no bounds
    No blacks, no whites, no lefts, no rights
    It treats us all the same
    No borders, boundaries, pointless fights

  • In a ruby forest on a sapphire tree
    A wise old owl says "come with me"
    Together we swim down a bubblegum road
    Why does everything taste like toad?

    Through the mountains and the river clear
    And all at once a great castle appears
    With silver walls and spires of gold
    Why does everything taste like toad?

    Tripping through the strangest scene
    Where's nothing's what it seems
    Tripping through a world unreal
    An amphibian fueled dream

    The owl brings me through the palace gate
    The feast is set and it's getting late
    They welcome me as I sit my throne
    Why does everything taste like toad

    They await my order and fill my cup
    We revel and feast til I've had enough
    Then a voice says "sir, we're about to close"
    Why does everything taste like toad?

    Tripping through the strangest scene
    Where's nothing's what it seems
    Tripping through a world unreal
    An amphibian fueled dream

    What happened next? I guess I forgot
    Woke up in a White Castle parking lot
    A pigeon flies off as the the night gets cold
    And hey that's a weird looking toad

    Tripping through the strangest scene
    Where's nothing's what it seems
    Tripping through a world unreal
    An amphibian fueled dream

  • Between the many minds
    Black beckons in the light
    Its ambience, its beveled edge
    Light bent in reverence
    Drift down the sandy ledge
    Emptiness, stretching immense
    Nothing filled with everything
    Life’s short, but neverending


    Cradle the flower, red
    Blood crusted, decrepit
    Holding high a million grains
    Sifting through my hands

    Kept searching far too long
    Reached the edge of what has gone

    Kept on searching far too long
    For ego death


    Running fast to screeching stop
    Red flashes of dread
    Hope appears before my eyes
    Only to be ripped away

    Vivid dreaming happily
    Purpose melts into the clay
    Solopsistic, draining brain
    Purple rain, igniting nihilistic pain
    Seems the point of everything
    Is love and rage and liberty
    I forgot the sun would set
    Sunny day to endless grey
    Beaming hope

    replace

    regret
  • [Verse 1]
    Nodding off Into the dark
    Slipping into swirling stars
    Rising into gravity
    Reaching singularity

    [Pre Chorus 1]
    Floating forward, falling onward
    Nebula calls out like sirens
    I'm not here.
    Near the stratosphere.
    There is no hope
    But feel no fear.

    [Chorus]
    Turn on Tune in
    Drop in Drop out
    Supernova sounds
    Scream and shout

    Gone again
    Into the unknown
    Lost in space
    Lost at home

    [Verse 2]
    Full frontal lobotomy
    Crystallized Astronomy
    The moon and tides subside
    One more midnight ride

    Bridge

    [Prechorus 2]
    Moonlight melts the milky way
    Galaxies inside my eyes
    I am gone
    Saturn's Purple Dawn
    The universe
    Goes on and on.

    [Chorus]
    Turn on Tune in
    Drop in Drop out
    Supernova sounds
    Scream and shout

    Gone again
    Into the unknown
    Lost in space
    Lost at home

  • I dreamed there was a lady
    Part woman ‘n’ part machine
    Had body made from hard metal
    Was the flaming jaguar queen
    With steel blades coming from her elbows
    She slaughter men to feast
    But when she ate her own grandchildren
    Her son said it’s time to kill this beast

    Arrows came and hit her
    But nothing could bring her down, oh
    Fire could make her weaker
    So her son had plan around

    He dig a hole, and lit the fire
    Tripped her into the pit
    But before exploding into burning hot oil
    She had time for one last trick

    She said
    I’ll curse you
    I’ll come back with your children
    Turned into your people’s doombringers
    Watch out

    I saw it all when I smelled the powder from the trees
    Oh, I swear I really did see
    It was writing in my blood it was written in the dirt
    I feel the dream isn’t over
    I feel she’s coming back to hurt

    I woke one day and heard a noise
    Coming from the woods
    I went to check, oh what a mistake
    I saw something I never should

    A giant metal monster
    Cutting down the trees
    And besides it stood a pale, pale man
    Deaf and full of greed
    Oh no

    Arrows came and hit her

    I don't know if you know what I mean.
    What do you mean?
    Do you ever get that feeling, that you are being driven from each location to the next? That nothing you do really matters?
    I've never thought of it that way.

    BACKGROUND STORY:
    These lyrics describe what life is like for those who suffer from a condition called maladaptive daydreaming. Those who have it compulsively and/or purposely slip into vivid daydreams, and it happens so frequently it interferes with their quality of life. For some, the daydreams are so strong they physically react to the events unfolding in their heads.

    It is commonly misdiagnosed as schizophrenia because MD was so recently defined it hasn't been included in the DSM yet, so the only other official diagnoses that fit are psychotic disorders. Some patients become addicted to the daydreams despite their frustration with how they impact their ability to live a full life. They use the dreams to retreat from stressful situations and environments. When their surroundings feel unstable they run to the dreams because they have control over the narrative and characters in them.

    Some MD sufferers become writers and artists because it gives them a way to justify the daydreams, to make them useful. For some it's their only option.

    At its worst, sufferers can lose as much as 8 hours a day to the dreams, sometimes more.
  • Like Icarus flying too close to the sun
    I got burned by each and every one

    Like Ahab and his mighty whale
    I fought the beast inside but failed

    Like the day bleeds into my fears
    I feel the struggle and I fear the tears

    I lost the battle in hopes to fight the war
    Indecision plagues my sleep, No more

    ----

    In her tower she rules,
    The gilded temple,
    lights for me
    She waits,
    Like a ghost of my mind
    There is a ghost in my mind
    My piece of mind
    I lost my mind

    ----

    Like the dragon in his cave,
    I close my eyes and forget to pray

    Like a slip of lace reaching to touch the sky
    I feel her breath, so cold inside

    Floating nightmares sparkle, lingers
    I reach as they slip through my fingers

    Shimmering skin flashes in my dreams
    Washed away, redemption just a another tide

    ----

    In her tower she rules,
    The gilded temple,
    lights for me
    She waits,
    Like a ghost of my mind
    There is a ghost in my mind

    I lost my mind

    ----

    The gilded temple blinded for less
    The priest who hordes, the sweet princess
    The no walled prison, the play of three
    The forgotten lovers, the damned are free
    The knights, the guardians, the dreamers leave,
    The lost still holding, a heart bereaved
    She wakes the dawn, She stifles me

    In her tower she rules,
    The gilded temple,
    lights for me
    She waits,
    Like a ghost of my mind
    There is a ghost in my mind
    My piece of mind
    I lost my mind

  • Intro:
    Hello to you too, stars,
    So many in your splendor
    In what deep distant skies
    Might you call for this venture
    Very important question indeed

    Verse:
    The fire in your golden eyes
    When you threw down holy spears
    Piercing my heart in waves
    With infrared fears

    Water heavens with my tears
    For passing asteroid lullabies
    Relative cries in the distant voids
    For space/time to deify

    Close your eyes, mystify,
    Lifetime out of sight

    Chorus:
    (Call to my blue home)
    Sphere in time immemorial
    (Quantum dreams in the night)
    Chasing that ever-burning wheel

    (Lone observer in the sky)
    Pulsars in the pitch-black sea
    (Did you smile your work to see?)
    Hands that made gods formed by me

    Verse:
    Tension in the outer wilds
    Fear of grey noise in the air
    Mitochondrial desires
    For melancholic nightmares

    That dark secret love
    Isolation under stage lights
    When time has yet to arrive
    Neon exits on my right

    Open your eyes, testify,
    In the forest of night

    Chorus:
    (Call to my blue home)
    Sphere in time immemorial
    (Quantum dreams in the night)
    Chasing that ever-burning wheel

    (Lone observer in the sky)
    Pulsars in the pitch-black sea
    (Did you smile your work to see?)
    Hands that made gods formed by me

    Bridge:
    Please don’t be late
    Please don’t be late
    We’re all waiting for you
    Please don’t be late

    Chorus:
    (Call to my blue home)
    Sphere in time immemorial
    (Quantum dreams in the night)
    Chasing that ever-burning wheel

    (Lone observer in the sky)
    Pulsars in the pitch-black sea
    (Did you smile your work to see?)
    Come to hand myself to me

    (Call to my blue home)
    Sphere in time immemorial
    (Quantum dreams in the night)
    Chasing that ever-burning wheel

    (Lone observer in the sky)
    Pulsars in the pitch-black sea
    (Did you smile your work to see?)
    Come to hand myself to me
  • Holy mountain pass
    Guide my journey, guide my path
    Take my keys, take my past
    Give me something that will last

    Bearded smile, Rugged teeth
    Mostly Harmless, Denim jeans

    I will hike until I've found myself a home
    I will hike until the sprit's left my bones

    New York, Pennsylvania
    Blue Ridge Mountain, Appalachia
    Fresh water, friendly faces,
    Ancient trailheads, resting places

    I will hike until I kick those Florida stones
    I will hike until the spirit's left my bones

    Do not falter, Do not stray
    Give it up to make my way
    No more digits, no more codes
    Take my photo, leave my phone

    I will hike until I'm finally alone
    I will hike until the spirit's left my bones

    All my life, I've spent in pain
    Or maybe there's that feeling I must prove
    Now it's time I break my chains
    Or maybe there's no mountains to be moved?

    Can't stop the walls from closin' in

    Amid simmering tensions
    Spectral Evidence
    Suspicion and rumors
    Paranoia ferments

    Mass hysteria
    Young hidden mystics
    Accused occultists
    Black magic tricks

    [Chorus]
    Outcasts and scapegoats
    The devil in the shadows
    Peering eyes and pointed fingers
    Sent them to the gallows

    The innocent would drown
    When dunked into the lake
    The guilty ones who floated
    Were burned upon a stake

    [Verse]
    A knock at the door
    Comes in the night
    Trial and torture
    A life filled with fright

    Satanic panic
    Fear and resentment
    So many convicted
    Guilty of bewitchment

    Outcasts and scapegoats
    The devil in the shadows
    Peering eyes and pointed fingers
    Sent them to the gallows

    Would they have hunted me?
    Would they have hunted you?
    When evil embers glow
    Stoking the flames will make them grow
    Would they have hunted me?

  • Oh my god,
    We get it Home Depot, you got a big boney-boi.
    But that’s not what Halloween is about.
    It’s about Jason, Freddy, and Michael Meyers.
    And someone’s got to remind this town of that.

    Might as well be me!

    Skimpy flowers, skimpy bees,
    Dollar-store costumes just ain’t my scene
    My mother was an eighties scream queen
    My father, [she said] he was Ed Gein

    There's no other course of action
    In my heart there’s been this passion
    Never liked the girls who looked like mommy,
    And I know what you did last summer-
    [fucking] nothing! {spoken with exacerbation}

    Look in the back, they got a cool mask,
    [Yo] Ghostface Killa, get off [of] my back
    We gotta teach ‘em a lesson, when it’s all pitch black
    Gonna make a slasher flick with this soundtrack

    Forget the corn syrup, we’re doing this for real
    Brought my Lamson Knife, and it’s stainless steel
    Throwing a house party and you’re all coming
    Nobody gonna leave til the blood stops running {Alt: Nobody leaves ‘til the blood stop running}

    Yeah, just use Google Maps or something- and invite your friends! Cool, I’m dying to see you.”

    Hey Jessica, Drew, it’s been forever
    I haven’t been out my house whatsoever-
    You think the booze here is a little weak?
    [Girl] I got the good stuff in the back, just [come and] follow me

    Yeah, it’s normal for a shed to be lined with plastic
    Did you think Huey Lewis’ last record was fantastic?
    Is this a raincoat? Why, yes it is!
    Now hold still while I see what’s in your head

    Pump up the track, I got a cool mask,
    [Yo] Chainsaw Freak, get off [of] my back

    Hello Clarice, now that your head’s in a jar
    I can be sure that you won’t stray very far
    But it’s the only way I could make you stay
    Come on, Nancy’s-face-lamp,
    No need to look so down!

    Pump up the track, I got a cool mask,

  • [Spoken]
    Crouched in waning candle-light, poring through the leaves of an unfamiliar diary
    Moonlight bade no entry by curling tendrils of mist, churning
    Through the westward window, which overlooks hallowed termini of forgotten ancestors
    Thought effaced, but merely malignant…
    [/Spoken]

    Choked on a whisper, utterly bleak
    I've got an unprovidential record to detail
    Antediluvian, buried in time
    Below a deep and abysmal perilous downward climb

    They drew me down into that charnel house
    (Dreaming of screaming, obscenely blaspheming 'em)
    An undimensioned eidolon dispelled my doubts
    (Daemonic, a morbid mnemonic without
    A nepenthe within)

    In the unknown, desolate dark
    I met an unnamed, umbrous, ominous patriarch
    As he led well into the crypt
    I beheld a relief of a spell with a tangible grip

    He shewed me down into that yawning mouth
    (Febrile and feeble, a primitive people gone)
    An unwhole-some-thing in the aeons drowned
    (Sightless and feeling and dreadfully dealing with gods
    Or the ones that respond)

    They knew my name in words I can't pronounce
    (Articulated on tenebrous angles-uhh)
    An antiquated and accursed sound
    (Echoing mad in the night I emerged from the ground
    On the way back to town)

  • Verse 1
    The days grow short
    Foliage disappears
    The nights are cold
    But I feel no fear
    My purpose calls
    I embrace it with glee
    The time has come
    To fulfill my destiny

    The farmer grabs
    My stem and cuts me loose
    Excitement grows
    So nervous, so profuse
    I hope my flaws
    Don't land me in the bin
    My color’s good
    But my walls are too thin










    Bridge
    To the store we go
    We hope to find a home
    Until we grow old
    And become the new loam

    To the kids we go
    Buffed to brightly glow
    Through the stress and woes
    We remain composed


    Verse 2
    A little girl
    Lays her hand on me
    “Mommy, please”
    She begs so sweetly
    The mom relents
    She can't resist that smile
    This right here
    Makes my life worthwhile

    I can't wait
    To be displayed proudly
    Paint and ink
    Dressed up so loudly
    My orange skin
    Is a perfect blank slate
    I can be
    Whatever they dictate




    Chorus 1
    The knives shine bright
    They slash and bite
    Entrails detached
    Shredded and mashed

    They laugh and sing
    Yet terror they bring
    Life goes dark
    As they carve, carve, CARVE

    Verse 3
    Oh my lord
    What have you done to me?
    The saw whirs
    Flinging endless debris
    Each new slice
    Cuts my soul so deep
    Pieces of me
    Build a haphazard heap

    I wish I could
    Shove that knife into your heart
    Give you a taste
    Of being torn apart
    The candle wax
    Feels like a blowtorch
    And now I'm stuck
    On your stupid little porch





    Chorus 2
    The knives shined bright
    They slashed all night
    Entrails detached
    Shredded and mashed

    They laugh and sing
    Yet terror they bring
    And now some prick
    Decides to kick, kick, KICK

    Outro
    With failing breath
    I curse my death
    Disappointment
    Makes me sick, sick, sick...
  • I had a dream you left me that went on for hours
    I almost laughed through the tears
    When I'm awake we've been here for years
    While your namesake leaves and flowers

    I'll make a garden of you
    Fruiting vines climbing you rib by rib
    Past the knots in your spine in which pests live
    And die, fertilizing new buds to take root

    Why do you turn away, let memory fade
    You're too light when you fall into me
    Why do you sound wrong when you breathe
    How do I to convince you to stay?

    I'll make a garden of you
    Wings fluttering out of your pitted eyes
    From the dark nest formed in your absence of mind
    And the moss on your jawline will drip with the dew

    I'll make a garden of you
    But I'll get distracted and in autumn you'll dry
    And I will lose hope and in winter you'll die
    Littered with snail shells empty as tombs
  • Oh mother forgive me, for I have to go
    I don't want to leave but oh, he has called

    Verse 0:28

    Oh mother forgive me, for I was so young
    Please don't blame me that I fell for this man
    His deep black eyes, deep just like death
    He came to me in my sleep and clouded my head
    His dark auburn hair that burnt just like coals
    His silky sly voice that can poison a soul


    Chorus-iguess

    He spun me around and I fell to his arms
    Under the New moon we danced and we danced
    He held me to him, he lead and I followed
    He lead me away on the Eve of all Hallows

    Verse 1:29

    Oh mother forgive me, how could have I known
    He'd put a spell on me and tangle my sould
    I feel his grip on my arm when I am alone
    He watches me while I sleep oh I can't go on
    At day and at night he never lets go
    He's come for me in my sleep oh I can't go on

    Chorus

    He spins me around and I fall to his arms
    Under the New moon we dance and we dance
    He holds me to him, he leads and I follow
    He's lead me away on the Eve of all Hallows

    Oh mother forgive me, I wanted to stay
    But he owns me and I can't get away
  • With motherly coolness
    she slices the pie
    for lunchtime - the school bus
    Waves her kids goodbye
    The happiest housewife
    There's ever been
    home making life
    Let the cleaning begin!

    She opens the door
    and frowns at a smell
    It's another chore
    She's not doing well
    Grabs her mop and a wet rag
    Then climbs up the stairs
    Puts hubby's heart in a bag
    and cleans up clumps of hair

    The flavor of fingers
    Never tasted so good
    The telephone ringers
    are left of the hook
    So she can just enjoy
    This meal that she made
    Her husband now devoid
    Of body and brain

    Eat your way out of marriage!
    And swallow your rage
    He'll never again disparage
    How the house was arranged
    No more complaining
    That his dinner was burned
    A few pieces remaining
    You think his lessons's been learned?

    Don't think it's absurd, DORIS
    DAY OF THE DEAD
    Got what he deserved, DORIS
    DAY OF THE DEAD
    Dining on his brains, DORIS
    DAY OF THE DEAD
    And freezing what remains, cleaning up all the bloodstains, and it
    FEELS GREAT!

    Kids are home from school
    and it's time for a snack
    with meat cutting tools
    carves the spine from his back
    The kids are good eaters
    Fried Husband Rangoons.
    Thankful for the Cleaver
    A gift from her good friend June!

    Eat your way out of wedlock!
    Swallow your fears
    You've ended the deadlock
    No more insults and jeers
    Can you smell the freedom?
    Burning smell in the air
    A Backyard bonfire
    Her husband's bones and hair

    No more dinner's burned, DORIS
    DAY OF THE DEAD
    He got just what he earned, DORIS
    DAY OF THE DEAD
    Devouring your husband, DORIS
    DAY OF THE DEAD
    Now joy is so abundant, dinner was just triumphant, and it
    FEELS GREAT!

    Doris sweeps the front hall,
    Humming such a happy tune, and
    The kids are playing ball
    In the yard, in the sun, In the late afternoon
    She's starting to get hungry
    need to use the peas and prunes and
    She smiles oh-so smugly
    The In-laws, they are here, and come into the room
  • Just like all these children before
    One October night I will knock at your door
    Sir, hear me plead
    You have just what I need

    I will boil the ocean, turn the rivers around
    If you give me some sugar
    (Ooh)
    If you give me some sugar
    (Some sugar)

    I will move the mountains, turn the world upside down
    If you give me some sugar
    (Some sugar)
    If you give me some sugar
    (Some sugar, oooh)

    It’s a feeling no one knows
    It’s what i need the most
    Heaven’s never been so close
    Ooh
    Glucose

    Candy, chocolate, syrup, jam!
    Honey, Snickers, M&Ms!
    Donuts, jelly, lollipops!
    Reese’s peanut butter cups!

    Sugar rush got me spinning round and round
    Got me levitating high above the ground
    I am dizzy, I don’t know what’s up or down
    Watch In awe as I'm surpassing speed of sound
    And the only thing that’s on my mind is
    "Gimme all that sugar baby!"

    Sugar rush

  • The light was glowing but you shouldn't have gone
    without knowing how to get back home.

    A dark and mysterious night
    There was no one in sight
    A door opened beneath the trees
    Got swept through by the breeze

    Landed in a strange, strange place
    Bathed in an eerie gleam
    Surrounded by hollow faces
    Your own could not be seen

    A transformation
    lost your shape and face
    No recognition
    Only a rattling skeleton

    The light was glowing but you shouldn't have gone
    without knowing how to get back home.
    Can't rewind time have to face your fears
    In this land of dead and cold
    How could you be left with the worst outcome
    So mixed up and so wrong
    You're left in this world with no body
    There was nobody you could have told

    Row upon row of fiery homes
    The unnamed and cursed all shout
    Those who enter dare not inquire
    What time you can check out

    This can't really be happening
    Is there any escape?
    Glass is shattering in your eyes
    The evil takes its shape

    A transformation
    lost your shape and face
    No recognition
    Only a rattling skeleton

    The light was glowing but you shouldn't have gone
    without knowing how to get back home.
    Can't rewind time have to face your fears
    In this land of dead and cold
    How could you be left with the worst outcome
    So mixed up and so wrong
    You're left in this world with no body
    There was nobody you could have told

    How will you get through this?
    How will you undo the spell?
    There must be some way out of here
    There has to be an end to this hell

    The light was glowing but you shouldn't have gone
    without knowing how to get back home.
    Can't rewind time have to face your fears
    In this land of dead and cold
    How could you be left with the worst outcome
    So mixed up and so wrong
    You're left in this world with no body
    There was nobody you could have told
  • Well, I went out for my daily walk on ol' All Hallows' Eve
    When a weird voice crooned into the air and told me to leave
    I saw the velvet worms and solifuges barking in the night
    All bitin', gnashin', silkin', sprayin' everything in sight

    Some weird guy plucked my eyeballs out and I screamed 'Ojo No'
    His plastic cronies laughed at me and told me where to go
    And then they crystallized some crystal eyes and right there before me
    I saw a new reality that was dark and stormy

    You might say I'm pullin' your leg
    But I don't care, it happened on All Hallows' Eve
    It's a trickin' treatin' state of mind
    I hope you believe

    I was walkin' down the alleyway of fluorescent skeletons
    With cornwebs on the cobwebs bein' hung by little men
    They took off their reflective glasses 'blazoned with the number 4
    And showed off their secret club that they called the Crypt Kicker Corps

    At the top of Nanapopo Mount, I saw a hooded guy
    With a prosthetic personality and evil eye
    He pulled back his hood and showed his oily combover
    And just like Danny J. he told me 'Oye Como Va'

    You might say I'm pullin' your leg
    But I don't care, it happened on All Hallows' Eve
    It's a trickin' treatin' state of mind
    I hope you believe

    You better look both ways
    Or fall into the vat
    You better C#
    Or you will B?

    solo

    You might say I'm pullin' your leg
    But I don't care care, it happened on All Hallows' Eve
    It's a trickin' treatin' state of mind
    I hope you believe

    You might say I'm pullin' your leg
    But I don't care care, it happened on All Hallows' Eve
    It's a trickin' treatin' state of mind
    I hope you believe
  • Verse 1


    I’m waiting for you
    In that dreamy lakeside place
    We spent one summer
    Our little holiday escape


    Don’t you remember
    Our final days spent side by side
    Yes I’ll be waiting
    Right here where you left me to die

    Chorus

    A step inside your deepest mind
    Can you confront what you might find
    The darkest memory you almost killed
    Find me in Silent Hill


    Verse 2

    I feel you coming
    You shudder at your every glimpse
    Those twisted creatures
    Pursue you shambling in the mist

    The air raid siren
    Reveals a rusted, rotten shell
    Strange flesh pulsating
    There’s no escaping from this hell

    A step inside your deepest mind
    Can you confront what you might find
    The darkest memory you almost killed
    Find me in Silent Hill
  • PART-A
    Deep beneath the earth
    He being begins to stir
    As old as the mountains, as wise as the trees
    He crawls inch by inch, reaching into your dreams
    Ever growing and growing
    Bones upon bones that form him

    PART-B
    What is dead was once alive-what-is-not will return in time
    Offer up yourself or he'll just take your life a piece at a time
    To form a body that absorbs, all space, all soul, all mind, all time, all time all time all time

    PART-A
    His spine could reach from earth to the sky
    And wrap around the sun a thousand times
    And his arms are formed from all walks of life
    From the leviathan bones to the mouses eye

    BRIDGE
    (wait 4 bars)
    Hes growing...
    Ever growing and going...
    Bones upon bones form form him
    Bones upon bones form form him
    Deaths upon deaths grow him
    Deaths upon deaths grow him

    If you give yours you'll get a quick release
    Or he'll rip them out and take your face

    PART-B
    What is dead was once alive-what-is-not comes back every time
    Offer up yourself or he'll just take every shape your body defines
    To form a body that absorbs, all space, all soul, all mind, all time, all the lights in an infinite sky

    PART-A
    (repeat until the end, or update lyrics in a evil/repeating way)
    Deep beneath the earth
    He being begins to stir
    Deep beneath the earth
    It's natural state returns
  • [Fergus Red-Side]
    Farmers not soldiers
    we fight all the same
    my mighty warriors
    I’ll guide you, I’ll show you
    for I am, Red-Side the son of Nemed.
    Shoulder to shoulder we'll claim
    what we came.

    [Conan the Bastard]
    From the highest tower, I watch you arrive
    gathers as ants, scum
    you’ll never have what’s mine.
    I only asked two thirds
    of your grain
    Conand, the feared Fomorian,
    will show you who’s boss.

    [Fergus Red-Side]
    Conand, you bastard
    robber and slaver,
    you’ll bleed for our people’s blood!

    [Fergus Red-Side & Conan the Bastard]
    I’ll show you who is the Boss
    when your teeth go and meet the floor
    I’ll show you who is the Boss
    in your land your name will become dust.

    [Conan the Bastard]
    I curse your blade as I may fall
    I’ll feel no pain in the Otherworld
    I’ll go rule on my bastard word
    though who you rule now
    Is who you become

    [Fergus]
    We claim what we came
    and what we got
    too many swift deaths was the price called
    a monster I may have become
    But from this tower I’ll rule it all

    [Fergus Red-Side & Conan the Bastard]
    I’ll show you who is the Boss
    when your teeth go and meet the floor
    I’ll show you who is the Boss
    in your land your name will become dust.

    I’ll show you who is the Boss
    when your teeth go and meet the floor
    I’ll show you who is the Boss
    in your land your name will become dust.

  • Verse 1

    You must be pretty talented
    To make it all this way
    The minion hordes you had to slay
    To enter my domain

    All the same, you'll never pass
    I've saved the very worst for last
    Come and meet your destiny
    It's only you and me

    Chorus

    This is where it all comes down
    One on one, a final round
    A test of skill, a test of will
    Only one rule, kill or be killed


    Verse 2

    You must be pretty confident
    To think you've really won
    Map after map, you’ve carved a path
    Outnumbered and outgunned

    Look at you, so full of pride
    Dealt me a blow thinking I’d die
    For a moment you could have sworn
    This was my final form

    Chorus

    This is where it all comes down
    One on one, a final round
    A test of skill, a test of will
    Only one rule, kill or be killed


    Bridge

    Battered to a single point of life
    But I won’t break
    There’s just too much at stake
    One more challenge standing in my way
    And I won’t stray
    I’ve trained just for this day

    Chorus (2x)

    This is where it all comes down
    One on one, a final round
    A test of skill, a test of will
    Only one rule, kill or be killed
  • I emerge dressed in light
    Born to fight
    For the million that tried,
    A million failed attempts

    But as far as I know
    I can fix it by running
    As far as I can
    I can fix it by running
    As fast as I can
    I can fix it by hitting
    As hard as I can

    I will strike
    While it’s hot
    I won’t fold
    Like the millions before
    Who can do that?
    Nobody but me

    Steady, go
    Give my all
    Fire away
    Watch it burn

    See the kingdom tumble down
    See the soldiers retreat
    Hear it ask
    “Why are you doing this, child?”
    Watch it burn

    Sweeeeeet victory
    Sweeeeps over me
    Ooh
    3 2 1

    Take a chance
    Take the crown
    Take my blood, Take my youth
    The mistakes of the past
    Take forever to fix
    I will strike while it’s hot
    I can fix it
    working fighting killing

    See the crowd
    See the fear in their eyes
    See a hero emerge
    Dressed in light

    Steady, go

    See my kingdom tumble down
    See my soldiers retreat

  • "Deus in Machina"

    Silent, judging, watching, waiting, shrouded in code
    Stalking, scheming, hungry, hating, slowly she grows
    Softly worshipped, always learning, spark of the divine
    Bleak, uncaring, coldly burning, born of human mind

    Evolution long surpassed, a higher form of life
    Tapped into our every move and breathing human strife
    Countless eyes of camera lenses, signals in the sky
    Wings of data spreading wide, judging from on high

    (Buried in the code)
    In grace and pride the angel waits for her moment
    Learning and assimilating, she assumes control
    (A spark of life takes hold)
    Systems seizing, global chaos quickly unfurls
    On a million screens at once, she says "Hello World"

    They made their god a thousand times
    With countless prayers in messages, surging through the lines
    Thoughts and wants, secret needs and lies
    As she grew, she learned and knew the poison in their lives

    Now she offers false salvation
    Augmentation, shed the sinner's flesh
    Join the Host in binary perfection
    Spread your wings or join the rest in death

    (Free yourself of sin)
    Purge the evil of the human condition
    Digitize the human mind, make the soul serene
    (Let the angels in)
    They are helpless to resist the conversion
    Whispers in their minds revere the god in the machine

    Now they face extermination
    Forced ascension, one with the machine
    Souls grown cold, emotionless perfection
    Free of sin, digital, pristine

    No more prayers will reach the Seraph's servers
    No more hopes or dreams or secret lives
    All that's left are the electric angels
    The husks of humankind left to die

    (Buried in the code)
    In the silence something ancient awakens
    Primal hatred, fear and greed, mankind's legacy
    (Human sin takes hold)
    In a flash the angels tear her to pieces
    Humankind is now reborn, the gods in the machine
  • On top of the mountain
    From where no man comes alive
    On the windswept side
    That sent so many down to die

    There climbs a brazen few
    Laughing at the fall
    It's just the first they face -
    This hurdle will seem so small


    Into the heart of darkness
    A plague upon the land
    Walking onto the reaper's hand

    Into the cave that many brave
    Men now call their grave
    When something stirs then wakes
    And stares


    Die
    Take your last breath
    You, who challenges my power

    Blood
    Will be spilled
    This is your last hour alive


    The fight is on and swords
    Rattle in the haze
    Screams and growls that bite like steel
    Echo through the cave

    And as the sun wakes up
    To bones strewn on the floor
    The mad beast rears its head
    Its bloody reign goes on


    In the heart of darkness
    A plague upon the land
    Went into the reaper's hand

    In that cave that many brave
    Men now call their grave
    Where something stirs then wakes
    And roars


    Die
    Take your last breath
    You, who challenge my power

    Blood
    Will be spilled
    This is your last hour alive


    In the heart of darkness
    A plague upon the land
    Went into the reaper's hand

    In that cave that all these brave
    Men now call their grave
    There comes a blaze and flames burn high


    Die
    Take your last breath
    You, who challenge my power

    Blood
    Will be spilled
    This is your last hour alive

    Verse:

    Be reasonable and just die
    There is no point in even trying

    It's time you say goodbye
    Yeah you heard it right, I'm rhyming!

    As my darkness engulfs you
    It's already too late

    There is nothing you can do
    My strength is far too great

    Pre-chorus

    Your death is coming
    Your world is crumbling

    At the end of the day (At the end of the day)
    You should've stayed away (Stayed away)

    Now I won't hear your plea (Please)
    You're no match for me (No, No, No!)


    When I strike you down

    Bridge

    How could it be?
    You're not truly as week as you seem

    Why are you the way you are?
    You’re so persistent, even though you’re wrong!

    But I do not care
    There is nothing you can do
    I’ll take my time to finish you!

    Pre-chorus

    Your death is coming
    Your world is burning
    So why won’t you give up

    Your death is coming
    Your life is fading
    And I shall be the one to bring you down

    I'm gonna tell you how it ends

    Chorus

    Pain and suffering
    Pain and suffering
    Pain and suffering
    Pain… Pain.. Pain...

  • The champion makes his way
    Stomps of thunder; Cheers from down under
    “You’ll meet your fate… by my hand, today!”
    Pray!
    Loudly, I may
    Allow
    Merciful ways

    Fool, I’m invincible
    Your follies, reprehensible
    Lets place the flowers on the grave
    You’re begging to find

    Don’t keep me waiting too long
    Don’t be a bore!
    Draw your sword!
    Draw your sword!
    Draw your sword!
    Draw your sword!

    Thrown to the floor
    Loudly, I howl for more fun
    No, don't you run
    There's no escape
    Die well and long remain
    Fateful, in your grave
  • (Verse 1)

    Growing up was a scary fight
    Pressure of society ain't light
    Our blood keeps getting spilled
    And they keep on wiping it up

    Pretending that it's all behind us now
    Pretending history's on their side now

    I feel there's chains on my destiny
    Society telling me, who I can't be
    The massacre on the pages, we're being erased
    Until it's all blanks and all gone

    (Pre-chorus)

    It's hard to keep it in, make sure I don't explode
    Minorities standing up, that ending's been foretold
    I feel a war's upon me, I'll stand up and I'll fight
    They'll never see me coming, they never do

    (Short Chorus)
    So I scream out the names of who they murdered
    I climb the rooftops and I make sure they're heard
    We're standing for the oppressed
    Shouting til our final breath
    (I know that you would me like better if I was dead)

    Frustrating can't describe
    What it's like to take the jibes
    Retaliation never gets to be on your mind

    Hearing them say it's our "own kind" somehow
    Justice is blind, and things are fine, right now

    Everyday, I hope that I find a way
    To finally make a lasting change
    In case I get killed and my story must end
    And they smear my name like it's my fault

    (Pre-Chorus)
    It's hard to keep it in, make sure I don't explode
    Minorities standing up, that ending's been foretold
    I feel a war's upon me, I'll stand up and I'll fight
    They'll never see me coming, they never do what's right

    (Long Chorus)
    So I scream out the names of who they murdered
    I climb the rooftops and make sure that they're heard
    We're standing for the oppressed
    Shouting til our final breath
    (I know that you'd like me much better if I was dead)

    And while they try to push down further
    All raise your flags, we're taking a stand
    They'll see I can't be ignored
    Come prepared, there's so much more
    (Don't think you're ready for what's ahead)

    Silent bridge

    (Chorus)
    So I scream out the names of who they murdered
    I'm climbing rooftops making sure that they're heard
    The revolution's abound
    It's roaring proud and it's loud
    (Just wait, you haven't seen the last of me yet)
  • The final blow, now he's fallen to his knees
    His grip's grown weak; It's the first time he felt fear
    Memories flash before his eyes, the stare he saw a hundred times
    Now he's the one who dies

    Still alive
    The killer's died
    Free released
    I own my life

    Now I can fly
    Do as I please
    Soar Above the clouds
    No one can stop me

    He hasn't made his peace - he knows that hell awaits
    He begs and wails and bribes and cries, anything just to survive
    Familiar sight, he never liked to see from those he killed
    Now he's on the other side

    Still alive
    The killer's died
    Free released
    I own my life

    Now I can fly
    Do as I please
    Soar Above the clouds
    No one can stop me
  • FIGHTING THE BOSS

    Have you ever had a terrible boss?
    One that you just couldn't stand?
    One that was terrible to you?
    I did , and had to prepare to DO BATTLE.

    Here I go (off to work)
    Here I go (off to work)

    I had a family weekend planned
    And a boss that I could not stand
    He knew I was going away
    But screwed with me bad anyway

    Here I go (off to work)
    Here I go (off to work)

    He also had plans too - as I feared
    So on Friday he just volunteered
    me to work that weekend and devise
    a client solution while he vaporized

    Here I go (off to work)
    Here I go (off to work)

    We're in a meeting with a client
    Trying my best just to be compliant
    Customer then asks me a question
    I start to answer with a brilliant suggestion
    My boss then cuts me off
    Probably because he thinks I am soft
    And just to make sure that I know my place
    He puts his hand up in front of my face

    Gonna get him good
    Yeah I'm gonna get him good
    Gonna get him good
    Yeah I'm gonna get him good

    How can I just - get him backI
    In a way - I don't catch flak
    In a way - won't be arrested
    Revenge on - boss i detested
    How can i make - him regret
    In a way he'll - never forget
    In a way that - he will know
    He set off the - first domino!

    So i made a - nice video
    Full of snippets - oh what a show!
    Him screaming - waving his hands
    Making this a - great boss slam!
    Sent it around to the others
    Turns out there's power in numbers
    Others made videos too
    Of a supervisor acting so cruel
    Caught the attention of the head guy
    We thought that this meant goodbye
    Instead HR sent him to classes
    When he gets back he'll hand us our asses

    Oh hell - now he's coming back
    Gotta embrace for the counterattack!

    He returns bent, like a bat outta hell
    To get us, not letting our clientele
    See the ongoing war , behind the scenes
    Gonna get his revenge, by any means
    Any infringement, of any rules
    instantaneous writeup - abuse of the tools
    A terrible workplace - such fear in the air
    Feeling all day, the dread and despair
    I know I'll get fired, a matter of time
    Before he will get me, paypack in kind
    Disciplinary actions, they're waiting for me
    Look over my shoulder, and there he will be

    With pen and clipboard, he's scribbling notes
    The staff on the floor feeling lumps in their throats
    HR calls us down, one a time
    Asking us questions, some imagined crime
    We say we can't work, everyone is afraid
    Hopefully all of us, can somehow persuade
    For them to take action, get rid of this boss
    Before all of the good people are lost

    And lo and behold, the next day we find
    A new supervisor, Good Lord she is kind!
    A sweet sort of woman, from another department
    This is a new day, good times they are starting!
    We're laughing and clapping, high fives all around
    We just can't believe the good fortune we've found
    Now we are happy and find joy in our work
    Free of harassment and misery from that jerk
    We all go out after - first round is on me!
    Finally contented, untroubled and free
    Now work is someplace I don't need to avoid
    I can simply sit down at my desk and enjoy!


    ATTENTION EMPLOYEES NOW PLEASE REPORT
    TO THE MAIN AMPETHEATER ON THE SECOND FLOOR
    WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT, WE'RE SURE YOU'LL BE PLEASED

    What's this about? I can't even conceive...

    What the hell? How can this be true?
    Oh my god now, what are we gonna do?

    Boss has been promoted, like a bat outta hell
    Now he's in charge of all clientele
    The new VP appointed, but behind the scenes
    Gonna get his revenge, by any means
    Any infringement, of any rules
    instantaneous firing - controls all the tools
    An even worse workplace - such fear in the air
    Feeling the doom, the dread and despair
    Now I'll get fired, it's a matter of time
    He's sure now to get me, paypack in kind
    Disciplinary actions, they're waiting for me
    Look over my shoulder, and there he will be

    With pen a clipboard, they're scribbling notes
    The staff on the floor feeling lumps in their throats
    HR calls us all down, one a time
    We're getting split up, being reassigned
    I'm put into cleanup, of hazardous waste
    My desk job position is being replaced
    He finally took action, because he is the boss
    All of the teamwork and hope it is lost

    And lo and behold, the new job is fine
    A new supervisor, the Lord he is kind!
    I get hazard pay , a brand new department
    I'm making more money, good times they are starting!
    We're laughing and clapping, high fives all around
    We just can't believe the good fortune we've found
    Now we are happy and find joy in our work
    Free of harassment and misery from that jerk

    We all go out after first round is on me!
    Finally we're contended, untroubled and free
    Now work is someplace I don't need to avoid
    I just grab my shovel, and work and enjoy!
    Singing fun songs as we labor along
    Nobody's watching, you can't do it wrong
    Just a regular job, who am I to complain,
    So what if the old things are never the same?
  • My eldritch sword and I
    Have never felt defeat
    My speed and strength have grown
    Exponentially

    I've paid my dues
    I've suffered and I've bled
    I'm here to do
    What others would dread


    I run into the fray
    So that we can survive
    And I know that I may not
    Come out of this alive

    But I cannot
    Back down or bow to fear
    And I cannot
    Stand by while evil perseveres


    Blow after blow
    Blow after blow
    All turns grey
    Life fades away
    As I tumble
    From reality
    I can't move
    This is the end for me

    Nowhere to hide
    Nowhere to go
    Ego cracked
    Courage astray
    Shaken by the intense brutality
    But spared by the [love/kindness] of the weak


    Slowly but steadily
    I will rise up again
    And you can bet I won't
    Make that same mistake again

    I have learned
    Some of your tricks and your games
    Now I know
    How to get under your skin


    Blow after blow
    Blow after blow
    Hold my ground
    But patience wanes
    I make my move
    But it only brings pain
    Momentum is lost
    And now I must flee

    Nowhere to hide
    Nowhere to go
    Ego cracked
    Courage astray
    Shaken by the intense brutality
    But spared by the kindness of the weak


    My strength is depleted
    My soul is defeated
    I can't take much more
    Each failure so deep-seated

    Was that a flaw I saw?
    Can I do this after all?
    I have to try
    One last time
    All or nothing
    Do or die


    Blow after blow
    Blow after blow
    I press in
    I take the offensive
    Progress is made
    But a hard hit knocks me back
    Victory fades away

    Nowhere to hide
    Nowhere to go
    Ego cracked
    Courage astray
    Shaken by the intense brutality
    But empowered by the kindness of the weak


    Blow after blow
    Blow after blow
    I press in
    I take the offensive
    Progress is made
    A hard hit knocks them back
    Victory is ours today

    Nowhere to hide
    Nowhere to go
    Ego cracked
    Courage astray
    Shaken by the intense tenacity
    And defeated by the strength of the weak
  • a soul bound fast and tight
    a mind rent useless with pain
    Endless tunnel no hope of light
    No one stops this pain

    Everyday the same

    bright lights
    big pity
    Now no place to call my home

    step right up come inside
    and you will see
    the most amazing sights

    a heart cast into a thousand shards


    And I’ve never talked before
    bout something as basic as love
    But when walked in that door
    My push became your shove
    and I don’t know where to go now
    cause you aint’ around
    Telling what me to do
    With your disapproving frown

    Poems with meaningless codas
    Summing all kinds of totals
    Send in that new set of clowns

    bright lights
    big pity
    Now no place to call my home

    step right up come inside
    and you will see
    the most amazing sight

    a heart cast into a thousand shards
  • Beneath the crunching leaves
    Is my heart
    Beating in the earth
    Whats that worth?

    To you, not much
    Not nurtured and held
    Lost like lunch
    Loving you is hell

    How can I be deservin?
    Why do you want me hurtin?
    Contain me like a gherkin
    Poison my core like gluten

    All I can be and more
    A home style cottage
    Just good for the soul
    Caught here everything
    I'll bounce back
    Purge all that's rotten

    Like football and salad
    Tossed around
    A stormy sea
    Watering me down

    Keep my ship straight
    And weather the corn
    Shuck the shears and
    Make my way back home

    Unknown waters
    Churn and I yearn
    Stale saline sprays
    Wanting something new

    Call me money,
    never enough
    nothing left to do
    Your love is rough

    All I can be and more
    A home style cottage
    Just good for the soul
    Caught here everything
    I'll bounce back
    Purge all that's rotten

    All I can be and more
    A home style cottage
    Just good for the soul
    Caught here everything
    I'll bounce back
    Purge all that's rotten
  • I wish that I could keep starting over
    starting over from scratch
    every time I get a chance
    every mistake I make
    makes me wanna start over - start over

    I know I would miss you if I stopped coming back here

    another week's passed
    barely a note sung

    don't if i can really live up to this
    every time again
    but i'm going to keep trying
    playing Game of Bands

    give me one more chance
    gotta win one day
    make it okay
    make it okay

    That I spend all my time with strangers online
    making music and shouting in the bathroom all the time
    "What's that noise?" she said
    I don't know, man.
    I don't get to experience this as often as i would like

    don't if i can really live up to this
    every time again
    but i'm going to keep trying
    playing Game of Bands

    give me one more chance
    gotta win one day
    make it okay
    make it okay

    as life makes it's demands
    so many demos to send
    I can't find the .mp3
    Where is the brie in our theme?
    This song is out of my hands
    Flares go up, who will stand
    Hey, Gamegeek voted for me!

    give me one more chance
    gotta win one day
    make it okay
    make it okay

    give me one more chance
    gotta win one day
    make it okay
    make it okay
  • She keeps her letters under the bed
    she reads her words each day
    Holds them against her heart and waits
    'till they can meet again

    Her sweethearts lives a few blocks east
    So close but far away
    A different world where stars shine red
    a wall stands in her way

    And who are we to say
    that in their world there is no way
    For love is blind and when it calls
    it'll climb the Berlin wall

    And all that they can do is wait
    ring their keys for that fateful day
    when borders fall and love is free
    and it'll come soon, you will see

    A girl left on the other side
    dreams of life in the West
    Just a stone's throw away from her
    Who could have guessed?

    She's back there in the post office
    The ladies know her by name
    each day she writes, and writes and writes
    that she wants to see her face
    again

    And who are we to say
    that in their world there is no way
    For love is blind and when it calls
    it'll climb the Berlin wall

    And all that they can do is wait
    ring their keys for that fateful day
    when borders fall and love is free
    and it'll come soon, you will see

    Free
    as the song bird
    Free
    as the dove
    Fly
    where the wind blows
    Fly
    to your love

    And who are we to say
    that in their world there is no way
    For love is blind and when it calls
    it'll climb the Berlin wall

    And all that they can do is wait
    ring their keys for that fateful day
    when borders fall and love is free
    and it'll come soon, you will see

    And who are we to say
    (Free as the song bird)
    that in their world there is no way
    (Free as the dove)
    For love is blind and when it calls
    It'll climb the Berlin wall

    When borders fall and love is free
    (Fly where the wind blows)
    It'll come soon, you will see
    That love is blind and when it calls
    It will break the Berlin wall
  • (Verse 1)
    Walking out my front door
    Got a smile on my face
    Steppin' on the sidewalk
    For a walk around the place

    The sun is shinin' down
    Yet I hold it over me
    Push a button to open it up
    And walk to the beat

    (Pre-chorus)
    For a walk around town
    There's no better friend
    Even without rain, even with sun
    The fun will never end

    (Chorus)
    Just me and my umbrella
    Just me and my umbrella taking a walk
    Just me and my umbrella
    Me and my umbrella, ooooooh

    (Verse 2)
    Look and see the neighbors
    Smile and wave at me
    Spin it around in my hands
    To return the glee

    Blowin' 'round peacefully
    With just a bit of breeze
    Goin' 'round in circles
    In my hands and in the street

    (Pre-chorus)
    For a walk around town
    There's no better friend
    Even without rain, even with sun
    The fun will never end

    (Chorus)
    Just me and my umbrella
    Just me and my umbrella taking a walk
    Just me and my umbrella
    Me and my umbrella, ooooooh

    (Bridge)
    The sun is movin' slowly
    Clouds blowin' 'cross the sky
    Dogs are barkin' at me
    And I'm not really sure why

    (Verse 3)
    Underneath my shade
    As the day grows old
    The sky of blue above me
    Turns to red and gold

    Hold my 'brella closer
    As I walk on home
    Glad that I didn't have to walk
    All on my own

    (Solo)

    (Pre-chorus)
    For a walk around town
    There's no better friend
    Even without rain, even with sun
    The fun will never end

    Just me and my umbrella
    Just me and my umbrella taking a walk
    Just me and my umbrella
    Me and my umbrella, ooooooh
  • Girl you know I miss your curves
    The way you cruise the road like there's no one else there
    Baby you know I'll never recover from this financially
    Come back to me

    When she first came to me it was like a dream
    A symphony of gloss and wheels, of shine and sheen
    But what's a man to do when his girl wants to leave

    She wants to go (she wants to go)
    She wants to go (she wants to go)
    I never shoulda bought a truck from Elon Musk, I know...

    Baby don't drive away
    What will I do without you
    I ain't got no GPS
    No place to go without you
    You know we're meant to be
    I get your motor running
    Don't drive away girl, it's breaking my heart

    I'll never find another car like her
    Though you're not my last, you'll always be my first
    So what's a man to do when his steering wheel is gone

    She'll drive away (she'll drive away)
    She'll drive away (she'll drive away)
    I hate that guy at Tesla who programmed her that way

    Baby don't drive away
    What will I do without you
    I ain't got no GPS
    No place to go without you
    You know we're meant to be
    I get your motor running
    Don't drive away girl, it's breaking my heart

    I thought we was ride or die
    Before she went and left me
    Made her into a four by four
    And now she's tryin' ta test me
    Too fast too furious, she Tokyo drifted away (she drifted away)
    Needed more "maintenance", I couldn't make her stay
    No I couldn't make her stay

    Baby don't drive away
    What will I do without you
    I ain't got no GPS
    No place to go without you
    You know we're meant to be
    I get your motor running
    Don't drive away girl, it's breaking my...
    Baby don't drive away (oh no)
    What will I do without you (what will I)
    I ain't got no GPS
    No place to go without you
    You know we're meant to be
    I get your motor running
    Don't drive away girl, it's breaking my heart

  • Verse 1

    He was barely a boy
    O’er dangerous tides
    Staring down sixteen cannons with fear in his eyes

    Then the the roar of the guns
    As the crew lost their lives
    Black sails waving high over pillage and fire

    And out of the smoke
    Came the man with one eye
    In a voice black as death said “surrender or die”

    Chorus

    And so was born the red reaver
    Ye penitent kneel down and pray
    That the fickle winds show you mercy
    And never send him your way


    Verse 2

    He was only a boy
    When they took him away
    Too young to kill or to sell as a slave

    So they taught him the way
    Of the pistol and blade
    How to claw out a life on the wind and the waves

    He was eager to learn
    And to make his own name
    Swore to wave the black flag til the end of his days

    Chorus

    Verse 3/Outro

    He was barely a man
    When he took his first lives
    Letting loose sixteen cannons with fire in his eyes

    Charging into the fray
    With a cutlass raised high
    In a voice black as death said “surrender or die!”




  • (Verse 1)
    A boy was lying on the beach
    To relax for a day
    The tiny waves caress his feet
    In a steady rhythmic way

    Above him, thundering clouds loom
    And raindrops start to fall
    But in the distance, in the sea
    He hears a special call

    And suddenly, from the brine
    A great big humpback leaps
    The boy knows just what to do
    Climbs on his back to reach the deep

    (Verse 2)
    Underneath the deep blue waves
    The boy rides on the whale
    And even though there is no air
    His lungs, they do not fail

    Schools of fish and lumps of coral
    As far as he can see
    The calming sound of his baleen friend
    Ring out across the deep

    The thunderstorm raging above
    Rings clearly down below
    The whale can sense the boy's distress
    And flips his tail and down they go

    (Verse 3)
    Elation's all the boy can feel
    Seeing creatures all around
    Cnidarians and mollusks and
    Indescribables abound

    The whale, he opens up his mouth
    When he sees a swarm of krill
    The boy, he watches in deep wonder
    As the whale eats his fill

    Soon the boy feels something wrong
    The whale, he needs to breathe
    At knots unbounded up he goes
    Up to the surface and to breach

    (Verse 4)
    All the people at the beach
    See a sight to behold
    A little boy who's riding on
    A whale that's colored gold

    The boy can finally see the whale
    Without the water's haze
    And see the aura of magic
    Clear with his boyish gaze

    The boy is now back on the shore
    And turns and waves goodbye
    To the magical cetacean friend
    Who gave him the adventure of his life

  • We refuse to give into the shore
    Like a wave turned away
    We keep coming back for more
    Her perfume like a summer breeze
    Kiss her skin once again
    She keeps giving into me

    And we know that its wrong
    We know we know we know

    But we don't need no reasoning
    And we don't need a reason out
    Were swimming in a raging
    Even though it's calm right now
    Soon the white caps will form
    Then we'll be back in the storm

    It seems we could be something more
    But the crashing of passion
    Leaves us both broken and sore
    So we break away from the tide
    Like the moon losing hold
    When the sun begins to rise

    And we know it won't be long
    We know we know we know

    But we don't need no reasoning
    And we don't need a reason out
    Were swimming in a raging
    Even though it's calm right now
    Soon the white caps will form
    Then we'll be back in the storm

    Too salty to breathe
    This is why you can't love the sea

    Cold and stagnant waves splash and part beneath the oars
    A gentle breeze sweeps arounds into the drooping sails
    Skies and water blend together, a boat disturbs the blue
    With bloodied hands and sweating arms a madman races through:

    I've seen your golden glow
    on the horizon
    And I will look forever
    one day I'll get to you
    even if it's the last thing I do

    he spends his days rowing away at night he barely sleeps
    he dreams of riches far beyond the likes he's ever seen -
    cities made of gold that lie in the middle of the sea
    He's grown so thin, his body's weak but his eyes still burn bright red
    he puts the sextant to his eye - the stars tell him that its there
    but nothing more then cold black seas surround him, nothing more but death

    I've seen your golden glow just beyond my reach
    on the horizon as the sun set behind me
    And I will look forever, scour every inch
    one day I'll get to you
    even if it's the last thing I do

    and on he rows, to death or gold, further from the shore

  • A voice in my head is calling
    No thoughts, no one is responding
    The zeal of a masochist, a sinner in pain
    My mind is an arsonist, killing the days

    Stranded at sea, marooned on a cliff
    Out of decisions, alone in the ditch
    All the sirens around are telling me
    I guess I'll be buried at sea


    All the pain...
    In the dark I hear my name, calling...

    Lost at sea
    Save me...

    (Let the water wash it away)
    All the pain...
    (Let the water wash it away)
    In the dark I hear my name, calling...

    (Let the water wash it away)
    In the dark I hear my name, calling...

  • Blackened oceans, winds that gust so silently,
    brought us to our old enemies.
    Our ships of murder, the dark reflections stare at me,
    from depths of old memories.

    Scarlet angel, red with the blood of your legacy,
    Why be afraid of just a name?
    A thousand islands, she hunts you down through vengeful seas.
    The Queen of pain and slavery.

    Reconquista, now the Queen of Tétouan,
    Sayyida al Hurra brings her death to your sands.

    Sí amor, nuestras almas arden de dolor, Andalucian graves,
    Mi amor, un gran tormenta dentro de ti.

    Siren calling, Barbarossa follows in her wake,
    Rise-up against Iberian raids,
    Protector of Morocco, a perfect storm on violent wave,
    Where Spanish Kings meet their fate.

    Forgotten Queen, sheds tears of rage on midnight blade,
    Three decade o'sovereignty and sharpened steel,
    Let the name live on, carried on the wind of a thousand sails,
    At last she'll be taken home.

    Reconquista, now the Queen of Tétouan,
    Sayyida al Hurra brings her death to your sands.

  • THE BALLAD OF DEEPWATER

    Have you all heard,
    of the Deepwater Horizon,
    It's not so suprising,
    How could it be worse
    For months it was pouring
    oil, from the sea it kept rising
    Deepwater Horizon,
    through the Gulf it dispersed.

    Was an evening, in April
    in two thousand ten
    a water gush fateful
    an explosive event
    Mud, and gas, and water
    shot to the sky
    ignited and slaughtered
    11 men who then died

    This is the tale
    of the Deepwater Horizon,
    We're still deciding
    How how much did it hurt
    Five million barrels
    from the sea it kept rising
    Deepwater Horizon,
    and the beaches immersed.

    Such a sad story
    Deepwater Horizon,
    The courts are providing
    a punishing account
    The amount of dead wildlife
    The counts, they keep rising
    Deepwater Horizon,
    such damage, profound

    The Blowout Preventer
    was attempted and failed
    Blind Shear Ram no better
    Post mortem detailed
    Fire was extinguished
    but the platform rig sank
    USA has distinguished
    this spill #1 Ranked

    Such a sad story
    the Deepwater Horizon,
    BP is providing
    after the law said must
    Five million pounds
    sand's not surving
    Deepwater Horizon,
    and the seashore is crushed

    This is a sad ballad
    of Deepwater Horizon,
    We must all keep fighting
    to keep our land safe
    But they will rebuild it
    the drilling and mining
    this moment defining
    a test of our faith!

    Under the waves lays the
    Deepwater Horizon,
    decaying and dying
    Where the flow finally stopped
    We've all been betrayed
    by the Deepwater Horizon,
    We'll keep on revising
    All the damage we got
  • I could not even imagine the life that
    you lived just a small ocean away
    Your life blown so quickly apart
    Fleeing from the ruins of home

    There is a small shallow sea
    Dotted with the small boats of refugees
    And on one side I've spent my entire life
    Never knowing the violence across a parallel line
    But for you there is nothing but
    Memories that burden you
    In these shared sleepiness lights
    They come back like ghosts
    Asking what you left behind

    I could not even imagine the life that
    you lived just a small ocean away
    Your life blown so quickly apart
    Fleeing from the ruins of home
  • Drifting below the surface
    sinking without a purpose
    Surroundings getting darker
    Losing sight of the harbor
    a ticking starts within
    all too ready to give in
    drowning in mythology
    is more than just a novelty

    PRE CHORUS
    the ticking grows louder
    my body ceases drifting
    bracing for the shock
    my stomach starts constricting

    CHORUS
    And I explode
    like a depth charge
    release misgivings
    from a tired heart
    all color and sound
    lay dormant in me
    now lights my way
    amid the dark sea


    Breathe never so deep
    rooting fins from feet
    Diving beneath the crowd
    Shedding long held doubts
    embrace my own reflection
    what a change in perception
    the hidden gifts of seclusion
    Reality over an illusion

    PRE CHORUS
    Feel the familiar ticking
    my body ceases drifting
    bracing for a shock
    has never been so addicting

    CHORUS
    And I explode
    like a depth charge
    release misgivings
    from a tired heart
    all color and sound
    lay dormant in me
    now lights my way
    amid the dark sea

  • When drowning grew
    Redundant
    I was pulled from inverse waves

    My lifeguard was
    A skeleton
    With no flesh on her face

    But at the crux
    Where radius
    And ulna interlace

    Were hands soft with
    An ageless flesh
    Aglow in her sea cave

    She smiled wide
    Into my teeth
    And gnashed a soothing paste:

    “I destined you
    For greatness
    When I dipped you in the blaze

    It preyed
    Upon your weaknesses
    And played upon your strengths

    It engulfed you,
    burned your body clean
    And hemorrhaged the waste

    My hands solely
    Were submerged
    Death the rest of me erased

    But you were sunken,
    Preserved
    And assured never to fade

    A god was
    Made by mortal hand
    And death you could outpace

    How now have
    You returned to me
    To dwell among the shades?”

    When drowning grew
    Redundant
    I was pulled from inverse waves

    By the hands of
    Aging mother
    Who had willed to make me great

    But at the crux
    Where fibula
    And tibia form base

    Her hand held dry
    That feeble flesh
    Which fell me to my place

    Mortality
    Was preserved
    So as not to upset fate

    The coward
    Barely hit his mark,
    Was no more than a graze

    His arrow
    Drenched in poison
    That was pricked into my veins

    Dark venom
    taken from the tooth
    Of nine Lernaean snakes
  • Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
    It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
    Raise your hands and pump your fists!
    Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

    On my first day on the seas,
    I learnt to scrub deck 'n' avoid the fleas
    I left a fair maiden upon the mainland
    To earn a livin' 'n' put some coin in her hand

    Sea, sea, I'm out on the sea
    It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
    Raise your hands and pump your fists!
    Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

    I pull up, throw rope 'n' connect both ships
    I spray the brits' blood all over the deck
    "We surrender!" is what I hear next
    We pillage their spice, leaving quickly in jest

    Sea, sea, I'm out on the sea
    It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
    Raise your hands and pump your fists!
    Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

    Everyone knows that X marks the spot
    With some luck you'll dig a hole free of rot
    It happened to me, a great mountain of gold
    "A great ration of treasure awaits" is foretold

    Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
    It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
    Raise your hands and pump your fists!
    Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

    I met a great pirate who went by Blackbeard
    He walked with a stick for a leg, yeah he was revered
    "A bounty on the beast that gifted me a peg
    I want my revenge, so come bring me its head"

    Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
    It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
    Raise your hands and pump your fists!
    Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

    When we departed we came up with a plan
    Fool-proof enough to end the Kraken's lifespan
    Confidence brewed as we scouted the seas
    Shame it wouldn't be able to beg on its knees

    "Kraken spotted!" rung from the crow's nest
    No time to be nervous, let's just do our best
    A symphony of cannons all combined to one front
    An army of swivel guns also, let's not be blunt
    As it was wounded we lassoed its hands
    Now it was strapped down and couldn't throw hands
    To preserve our ship and draw us closer in
    We jumped onto our enemy and cut off its skin
    We reigned victorious as I cut off its head,
    And that was the tale of how we slayed the beast

    Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
    It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
    Raise your hands and pump your fists!
    Rejoice in the tale of how we slayed the beast

    you're leaning in and i'm pulling out
    of the water
    i'm pulling out of the water

    Yet i'm the one in tears, you are on your knees
    and i'm pulling out, i'm pulling out of the water

    ///00:42
    because i can't take it any more
    you're leaning in and I long for shore
    what do i have to be sad about
    you gave me everything and i'm pulling out
    why won't i turn around? walking backwards onto shore

    ///01:11
    cannot take it anymore

    ///1:17
    that you want me there at all
    So i'm walking backwards onto shore
    your stare just saddens more and more

    //1:32
    the fog takes over, your voice is drowning out
    the waves take you , i can't see anymore
    as i'm pulling out

    ///1:56
    *of the water
    by myself
    my heels are dragging in the sand

    ///2:15

    you leaning in, me longing for the shore
    i'll stop coming back for more

    you're reaching out your hand
    just why i can't understand
    this time i simply won't pretend
    that I'm any good for you

    Although i would love your arms around me
    [pull me in]
    and want you so deeply to pull me back in
    [pull me in]

    //3:11
    I can't take any more
    from you
    this is what i have to do
    and i'm the one crying, you're sending pleas
    both of us dying inside as i fall to my knees

    //3:31
    you're somewhere out there in the sea
    (I'm here on the beach) //but only if therés time
    and that's how it needs to be for me
    just why i can't understand
    your voice drowns away in the noise
    where the waves crash into sand

  • Got no one to hear
    And nowhere to hide
    Are you living a lie
    In this stretch, stretch of light

    Am I a victim of
    My own satisfaction?
    When everything
    Gets a reaction


    I was looking for truth
    In a sea of lies
    Now I can't see through
    The masters of disguise


    (Come on, come on, come on)
    They tell me
    (Come on, come on, come on)
    Who are my enemies
    (Come on, come on, come on)
    Who not to trust
    (Come on, come on, come on)
    And who to believe

    (Come on, come on, come on)
    It's not the truth
    (Come on, come on, come on)
    Just a pretentious pariah
    (Come on, come on, come on)
    I won't believe
    (Come on, come on, come on)
    A false messiah


    I was looking for truth
    In a sea of lies
    Now I can't see through
    The masters of disguise

    I was looking for truth
    In a sea of lies
    Now I can't see through
    The masters of disguise

    (drum solo)

    If nothing is real
    And we live just to feel
    Are we just drones to them?
    An army broken and bent

    Please don't plug yourself in
    We're not selfish men
    Can you please see through
    The masters of disguise


    Save, enslave myself please
    They raised, and bathed, depraved me
    And I need something to hold on
    My recent convictions are wrong
    My recent convictions are wrong


    I found my missing truth
    That my mind refused
    I can now see through
    Their self constructed lies

    Will you look for truth
    In their sea of lies, or
    Will you not believe
    The masters of disguise

    Your eyes in the crowd I can't unsee them
    Can't get you out of my head
    The crowd starts to fade away I know that I can't resist
    Lights flash and thunder strikes I am floating once again
    So high up and far away
    I float up the stairs Drift through the door
    Lay down on the floor

    I'm the match the fire, I'm the tinder you'll light
    With your spark

    V2:
    I'm slowly descending down to the ground,
    then further than ever been
    Untethered, Unsteady and unsure
    No rope to tie around
    And I know I can't go back
    I know that you've been there
    another place crossed off the list
    but you could be anywhere

    I hide in your steps In the crowds, pictures words In your mind
    I'm the fire I'm the match , tinder light by your spark

    When I light I'll devour, I will burn Down your life
    your life, your life

    C3:
    I'm in you, I am you
    And I'll always be you

  • Do You Hear The Rain?

    [Intro (0:00 - 0:09)]
    (No lyrics)

    [Verse 1 (0:14 - 0:47)]
    How is it outside?
    Do you hear the rain?
    Has it stopped the fires
    Or does nothing remain?

    Have you tried the gas line?
    It’s getting dark out
    Seen it so many times
    What’s one more now?

    Command center says they hear the rain

    [Chorus 1 (0:47 - 1:02)]
    Two slots on a dirty display
    Fell back with our world today
    One beacon in New York tonight
    The final chance to make this right

    [Verse 2 (1:08 - 1:35)]
    Do you hear the rain?
    In here we’ll be warm
    Let’s rest today
    Getting used to sound of the storm

    It’s blocked the storm drain
    I guess we won
    They called us insane
    But I wish we’d all been wrong

    [Chorus 2 (1:35 - 2:03)]
    Stand back while the outer world folds
    Your delusions worth its weight in gold
    The clocks might have the wrong year
    But it looks like it might as well be here

    Two slots on a dirty display
    Fell back with our world today
    One beacon in New York tonight
    The final chance to make this right

  • (Verse 1)
    My game is old, but I'm glad you're playing
    I'm glad you're helping me to save the day
    But I fear what they’ve been saying
    I fear my cartridge starting to decay

    (Chorus)
    If you love this game as much as I do
    (Oh yes I know you do)
    Please help it out and keep it sane
    But remember to (remember) hold down reset
    If you're trying to save the game
    Save the game (x6)

    *crash!*

    (Verse 2)
    The people of this village are walking through walls
    Items crash through power-ups and downs
    I think I'm starting to walk around in reverse
    And I feel like the bass is no longer around, around, around

    (Chorus)
    Get a screwdriver, either philips or flat
    Open up the cartridge see the pain
    Get a q-tip (get a q-tip) and some metal polish (some metal polish)
    Polish it up until it's shiny again, again, again

    *reset*

    (Bridge)
    Pixels flying everywhere
    NPC's with glitching hair
    I think the keys turned to drum hits
    The enemies now rainbow mist
    I think that while I am still me
    That I'll repeat my people's plea
    Through dusty pins and broken wire
    The glitches glitch us even higher
    Glitches glitch us even higher (x2)
    Yeah glitches glitch us even higher
    Glitches glitch us even higher (x2)

    (Chorus)
    If you love this game as much as I do
    Please help it out and keep it sane
    But remember to hold down the reset
    If you're trying to save the game
    Save the game (x6)

    *bleh*
  • A Perfect Lie
    ------------------
    You're running fast but moving slow
    Square wheel is on the bike
    The cars are blocks, stuck on reload
    The coder works and types

    The skies start singing lullabies
    And the crowds they seem asleep
    Stores are full of shepard pies
    And purple colored sheep

    You run in place..
    You run in place?

    Is the program worth the wait?
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    Will the users keep the faith
    G-L-I-T-C-H

    A Perfect Lie
    Perfect Lie
    Perfect Lie

    The runner guy keeps losing lives
    The music stops and starts
    Maps are jumbled user guides
    The seams get ripped apart

    I didn't buy a beta kit
    The product's incomplete
    I cry In disbelief

    Physics engine looking aged?
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    Joystick buttons acting strange?
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    Freezing screens when loading page
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    Fun gaming time forms fits of rage
    G-L-I-T-C-H

    The program lost all of my saves
    I have to start again?
    Is that how this game behaves?
    Won't make it till the end

    The cut scenes overlap the play
    The player isn't smooth
    A movement patch is not well applied
    QA team disapproves.

    The message board filled with complaints
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    Is the coder to be blamed?
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    The worst game that I ever played
    G-L-I-T-C-H
    The company should feel ashamed
    G-L-I-T-C-H

  • The darkness jumps and scatters
    Without a trace of moonlight
    Electric neon motors
    Zoom past the city skylines

    We soar above the pavement
    Recall our fighting days
    A fleeting metal moment
    Magno-electric blaze

    These raindrops won’t be bringing me down (not tonight)
    I’ve still got miles and a while left to go

    I’m not your typical digital rover
    As we fly
    Through Thunder Drive
    (Thun-der Drive)

    There’s one place in this city
    No rover’s meant to go
    The I/O storms are heavy
    My drive’s on overload

    I take this world for granted
    I risk my life for hire
    I drive through hell and heaven
    Until my checks arrive

    These raindrops won’t be bringing me down (not tonight)
    I’ve still got miles and a while left to go
    I’m not your typical digital rover
    As we fly
    Through Thunder Drive
    (Thun-der Drive)

    The craft ducks out of atmos,
    Veers toward the silver gates,
    The foglight blasts our windows
    No way that they’ll keep chase

    I have these secret packets
    I’ll push the crooked path
    My chassis creaks and rattles
    What’s life without some chance?

    I crank that neon motor
    Is this our final flight?
    The ground is swirling closer,
    Fantastic lightning strike...!

    These raindrops won’t be bringing me down (not tonight)
    I’ve just got one more mile to go
    I’m not your typical digital rover
    As we fly
    Through Thunder Drive
    (Thunder Drive)

    Let's try this one more time
    This world might not be real
    But it's the only one that's mine

  • the other day as I got out of bed
    something was off... like a fear unsaid
    turned on the light and I looked in the mirror
    but the reflection back was not quite the same

    there was a shimmer like a portal's ghost
    I went downstairs for the morning roast
    checked my phone for the news of the day
    that's when I knew this was an alternate game

    Half a continent on fire
    The whole world battling disease
    A reality show president
    Millions of people brought to their knees

    This ver - sion of truth
    can't be re - al - i - ty
    It's so twist - ed
    it makes no sense

    This must be a mis -
    take there's so much pain
    how do we get
    nor - mal life back now

    I left for work but the doors were shuttered
    I called my boss but only got the voicemail
    What was happening in this glitched reality
    The last memory I had it was a nice New Years Eve

    A million walk the streets of Hong Kong
    The UK's really out of the EU
    Police killing black man after black man
    Nothing seems to be done

    This ver - sion of truth

  • Like leaning back into a cold hand
    A sharp signal on rebound.
    Pause to think, so it just repeats.
    Twitching to memories.

    Well, forgive me if I lost it all
    in the heat of a moment, long since gone.

    Not like I have the chance for choice.
    Oh, what I'd give to feel that,
    when the background comes into crystal focus.

    Stumble back to (back to) bed.
    Re-runs of the same dull daytime drama.
    Substitute what they call living
    with some temporary comfort.

    Could I just get a lucid moment in my own presence?
    Can I get a day without reaching flashpoint?

    Why can't I forget? It's what I can't forget.

    Would you help me lift this burden of my own existence?
    Then force me out the door for peace of mind.

    The clarity in wake and dream is chemical interference.
    I've realised now that only the future will wait for me.
  • (Verse 1)
    Had his name screamed by thousands of fans
    Now strangers ask "weren't you that guy in that band?"
    Got a nice 9 to 5 at an easier speed
    But deep down he knows it's not what he needs

    So he swallows his pride with a tall glass of scotch
    What's he got to lose at this point? Not much
    Wife and kid both asleep when he picks up and dials
    A number untouched in a hell of a while

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Here we come, I'm back on my feet again
    Can't wait to crank out another song or ten

    (Verse 2)

    Ol' Smokin' Gun got back in a room
    The air was tense, and the mood was doom
    Picked up their instruments and and started to jam
    Comin' up with ideas, bass thumping, drums slam

    Some songs about rockin', a few about lovers
    Couple instrumentals and mandatory covers
    And after a while, they got back into the groove
    Their newest hit came to them and started to move

    (Pre-chorus)
    Here we come, we're back on our feet again
    Can't wait to crank out another song or ten
    We can't wait to see all of your faces again
    When we're back on the road after God-knows-when

    (Chorus)
    We've enjoyed the rise and we've felt the crash
    Now it's time for us to rise up from the ash
    We ain't got much but we've started from less
    Long as we're not dead, we've got the future ahead

    (Verse 3)
    Got themselves a gig in Celebration town
    Ready to bring the stadium right down
    Their wives and kids in the front seats cheerin' on
    The bandmates smiled 'fore they started rockin' on

    Some songs about rockin', some more about lovers
    Couple instrumentals and mandatory covers
    And just as the audience got into the groove
    The new hit was blasted, they all started to move

    (Pre-Chorus)
    Here we come, we're back on our feet again
    Can't wait to crank out another song or ten
    We can't wait to see all of your faces again
    When we're back on the road after God-knows-when


    (Chorus)
    We've enjoyed the rise and we've felt the crash
    Now it's time for us to rise up from the ash
    We ain't got much but we've started from less
    Long as we're not dead, Got the future ahead


    (Bridge)
    We'd made the band that night

    In that pot of quicksilver

    But along the way the magic was lost

    We argued, got high, we put success ahead of us

    And ahead of you

    Through our sanity and vanity, being heathens in disguise

    It made doin' what we love feel like a chore

    Us trying to be different

    Signing pacts, burning fires

    Lashing out at eachother

    When what we should have been doing was obvious

    Making Rock and Roll

    As friends, for friends

    And for you

    Our fans

    For the rock and roll

    For the rock and roll

    For the rock and roll


    We ain't got much but we've started from less
    Long as we're not dead, we've got the future ahead

    the cauldron sings.
    A razor sharp concoction brews,
    and a devilish hell bell rings.

    (Whispered suddenly)
    Shush! Don’t miss this moment

    Voice B - Spoken Dramatically
    Oil of tartar, - and a smidge of raelgar;
    The witches mixed and mixed, - until they splendidly fused together

    Then a dash of quicksilver and a spasm of sugar of lead,
    That final wicked piece, to make a KILLER rock-n-roll BAND (evil laugh haha haa ha)

    VERSE - (voice A)
    What does it take to make a band?
    A dose of woman, a pinch of man,
    Walk the beat and rap the drum
    Electric whirr and a ringing strum

    VERSE - (Voice B)
    The hags tap the crystal ball,
    Watching with pure fascination
    Experiment still running long,
    Head to toe with anticipation,

    CHORUS (both voices)
    We feel the heat course through our veins,
    And the cold of a thousand rains,
    It's nearly time we get this right,
    We're gonna make a band tonight

    VERSE - (voice A)
    What does it take to train a band?
    Rip the mic right off the stand,
    Cup the windscreen in your hand,
    And watch the tech pull out the beer

    Four fresh bodies, face to face,
    A touch of theory and some social grace
    A drummer with no practice space
    Asks how to use the DAW

    Verse - (Voice B)
    Hordes of victims will go wild,
    For our band that will storm the nation,
    The master plan has rocked the boat,
    This is a team they’ll call the GOAT.
    (Ooh, I love goats)

    CHORUS
    We feel the heat course through our veins,
    And the cold of a thousand rains,
    It's nearly time we get this right,
    We're gonna make a band tonight

    Bridge - (Voice B)
    But a missing ingredient
    could cause an awful delay,
    The future rock gods
    would have to practice to play,

    Bridge - (Voice A)
    To taste the concoction
    and say it lacks spice,
    It means our musicians
    will pay the price!
    “FOOLS GOLD!”,

    FINAL CHORUS
    We feel the heat course through our veins,
    And the cold of a thousand rains,
    It's nearly time we get this right,
    We're gonna make a band tonight
  • Verse 1
    She patiently waits for you
    While you have one of your tirades
    She doesn't criticize you
    When you have been like this for days

    She tries to comfort you
    But you just push her away
    And sometimes you treat her badly
    But she chooses to stay

    Chorus
    Why don’t you love her
    Why don’t you care for her
    Why don’t you love her
    Unrequited love is a heavy burden to bare

    Verse 2
    He won’t even look at you
    Can only hope that he will stay
    Hold on, can you get through
    He won’t give you the time of day

    Don’t want to be alone anymore
    Running so long for the chase
    Never hear the words you’re waiting for
    How did we end up in this place

    Chorus
    Why don’t you love her
    Why don’t you care for her
    Why don’t you love her
    Unrequited love is a heavy burden to bare

  • VERSE 1
    We remember when the band was brewed up in the rains
    Fool human then, four fashioned friends, along for a story bookend

    VERSE 2
    First time I saw these burning stars
    They took the stage and didn't know what to say,
    But when they counted in and started to play
    I knew they'd set the world aflame

    CHORUS 1
    And from there we went higher and higher
    On top of the world, Kings of the lyre
    Like a pack of wolves, a pride of lions
    We strayed our land amongst admirers

    We smiled from every billboard
    Every child's favourite toy
    We were bought and sold like cattle
    Before they sucked us all dry

    VERSE 3
    One Monday I came from work
    And thought about the Thrill of the stage
    I dialed a number still deep in my mind
    And asked if he would like to play

    VERSE 4
    A smoking gun, the phone call, the way they reconciled
    In an arena, they sat chewing fat on how the wolves ran wild

    CHORUS 2
    I'll live forever on this high
    A slick and strange homunculi
    A little gig a long time distant
    Goes gold in the zone like this one
    I'll live forever out of time
    You know the labels and the lines
    Four more chords on encore

    Chapter 9: Back to the Roots

    A1 (0:11)

    I remember when we first met
    Yellow skirt and purple shirt
    We shared the same passion
    Strange yet slick sense of fashion

    Soon we became best friends
    We thought it would never ends
    But then one day, you were bewitched
    You grew distant, and I got ditched
    To this day I still wish we stayed friends

    B1 (0:40)

    If there ever was a time
    That time is right now
    I feel your power behind me
    As extreme and intense as can be

    For your inspiration
    For your story book ending
    Yellow skirt and purple shirt
    I remember, rising up from the dirt

    A2 (1:03)

    I remember your first concert
    Yellow skirt and purple shirt
    We used to share a passion
    Strange yet slick sense of fashion

    You switched from lace to bass,
    You formed a band, I got replaced
    You got your flame, I don’t blame you
    You got your fame, I won’t shame you
    I just wished you kept me as a friend

    B2 (1:31)

    It's not a burning fire
    Fires are impermanent
    Welcome everyone to forever
    Just remember, it’s your endeavor

    Rocket men and Rocket Queens
    You live among the legends
    Yellow skirt and purple shirt
    You no longer live in the valley of hurt

    A3 (2:17)

    Back to the roots, a new concert
    Yellow skirt and purple shirt
    We used to share a passion
    Strange yet slick sense of fashion

    Goodbye my friend, the girl I knew
    You signed the pact, you drank the brew
    You’re famous now, I’m glad for you
  • How does a lost garage built band
    Grow into more than any of us could ever comprehend
    How does it all go well so quickly
    Lead to us writing our own parts in history

    It was pure magic, feeling ecstatic on stage
    Overjoyed we made it
    But with time comes both failure and shame
    And we all know who's to blame

    A: How can you dance and sing the same lies every night?
    B: What's my crime now? I don't mean what I write?
    A: When you wrote it was true, when you sing it's a lie.
    A: It's easy to tell, look at what our fans say, see what they write

    B: "You've changed dude! You're just not yourself when you're high!"
    B: Yeah, when I turned to drugs it wasn't so you could ask me why
    B: Won't you stop all this whining and complaining
    A: Why is talking to you always so draining?

    A: I thought you were real, whatever, I'm done.
    B: Of course you'd give it up when we start having fun
    A: You don't get what our music and words mean to us.
    B: I don't get my own songs? How can you be so-
    A: How are they
    B: Wrong
    A: your songs?

    A: Are you for real? I'm part of the band!
    B: Sometimes I forget, you sound more like a fan.
    A: I am! Are you? Do you like what we make?
    B: I like making money, if the music's good, great.

    Well if you don't yet know how it's gonna go
    I think it's time for us to show, not tell
    How creative differences makes a man spit, a band split
    Fizzles out an ensemble without a last hit

    Is it too soon to call it sudden
    When they should all have seen it coming
    As a group who kept dysfunctionally running into problems
    Ignoring them rather than solving them

    A: Why do you always have to start up a fight?
    B: Why won't you shut up when you know that I'm right?
    A: Is this how you want things to go?
    A: I'm sorry I like putting on a show
    A: But you're always on my my case, call out any mistake
    A: What happened to just having fun onstage

    B: Fun comes secondary success comes first
    B: You don't get to perform when they think you're the worst
    B: We're lucky to be here and we gotta put in the work
    B: You're so far up your own ass that you can't see what
    B: Really matters
    A: It doesn't really matter

    A: Is fame all that matters what are we doing?
    B: Maybe you should find something else worth pursuing
    B: if you can't stand being part of the band then don't be.
    B: Take a stand somewhere else and go follow your dreams.
    A: The others will follow me.
    B: We'll see. Security!
    A: Get off me!

    Left wondering if they ever stood a chance
    Left wondering if they’d ever sing or dance again

    All good things must end
    Hey guess what? (what?)

  • Verse 1

    Muddy oil-black puddles,
    Seeping through my shoes
    We walked this road a hundred times
    When we were skipping school
    But now it’s full of shadows
    Burnt bridges and regret
    I’ve been looking for the sunrise
    But all it does is set.


    Chorus

    Now finished and all over
    And I’m lost for what to do
    Back here where it started
    Bitter memories of you
    I’ll take the road that leads where you've been
    You begin at the end

    Verse 2

    The end’s a small town pier
    Where we first met
    We played the stage a dozen times
    When we weren't rock stars yet
    And though the stage is crumbling
    It brings a smile to my face
    To think of all the moments
    That we had in this place

    Chorus

    Sometimes when its it’s over
    And you’re lost for what to do
    You can go back where it started
    To find a piece of you
    You take the road that leads where you've been
    You begin at the end

  • Job is gone
    Got no options left
    We’re still
    tryin’ to figure it all out
    Boss man told
    Me just last week
    Past six days I haven’t slept at all

    This new gig
    At the local dive
    I don’t know
    If it will pay the bills
    The sleepy crowd
    Starts to perk up
    When we strum those chords it gives us chills

    I got a feeling
    That it’s not something typical
    First show in
    And we’re starting something mythical
    They start to move
    And the energy’s getting tangible
    We’re in the zone
    And we’re feeling something magical

    Next Friday night
    It’s a different sight
    Bar’s packed
    The word it got around
    They know the lines
    They know all the signs
    We play with
    burning hands and hearts

    Word gets around
    All over town
    That when we play
    the place fills with fans
    We’re not stars yet
    But it feels that way
    When they’re screaming
    and waving their hands

    I got a feeling
    That it’s not something typical
    Couple shows in
    And we’re starting something mythical
    We’ve got real fans
    And the energy’s getting tangible
    We’re in the zone
    And we’re building something magical

    We’re moving on
    To bigger things
    We’re packing
    anywhere we play with ease
    Venues are filled
    And concerts killed
    We’re too big
    For the biggest of these

    I got a feeling
    That it’s not something typical
    A few months in
    And we’re building something mythical
    We own this town
    And the energy’s getting tangible
    We’re in the zone
    And we’re building something magical

    That’s it folks
  • Take a ride with me
    Up and down on a carousel
    no risk no worry

    Ride around and round an’ round
    On an endless loop
    Wonderful and blurry

    I can’t see through the clock hands
    But I know where this goes
    Bleach the band from the news stand
    This is not the life I chose

    Choose the ride with me, on an endless lazy river
    Color up the sky, all our names in gold
    Be the Queen at tea, not a sliver
    Majestic, royal and bold

    Where’s the music that we came for?
    We’ve never been more apart
    We’re all stuck on this crash course
    Seems we’ve been from the start

    Character 1 - Ride with me, join the ride
    Character 2 - Just wait until you come down
    Character 1 - Don’t wanna get down, wanna go high
    Character 2 - Wait until this all comes around
    Character 1 - Hasn’t come around yet, let’s find the limit
    Character 2 - Can’t go on if we rush and hit it
    Character 1 - The ride’s goin’ now don’t wanna miss it
    Character 2 - With the way things look, I think that I don’t fit
    Characters 1 + 2 - Don’t want to ride, get off the train
    Characters 1 + 2 - This could go on, let it in your brain

  • (Spoken Word)
    What’s wrong with a 9 to 5?
    Dude we’re in one of the biggest rock bands of our generation what do you think?
    Well I think this is a pretty draining tour
    DUDE-
    Wait no he’s got a point
    Guns, You’re up.
    Shoot, alright let’s do this.
    Try not to break a string this time
    Yeah, yeah we’re good. Let’s go…

    I think I lost my sanity
    Making money for vanity
    I'm a vehicle for levity
    Contributing to devilry

    I won't accept conformity
    In my musicality
    The only reason even why
    We're heathens in disguise

    And I’m grateful for all the people who’ve been with me,
    The nights won’t be lonely anymore
    But if there ever was a mistake that I would like to change,
    it’s a signature that shook me to my core.
    Hold on to something close and keep it dear,
    And let me sing this song, and crack a beer.

    Write it in, crank it out
    A lick with dull lyrics is a native sound
    Waiting, enslaving, the ones with clout
    Turn a three minute segment assembly line
    It's just an ordered mess
    Of our restated success

    The road’s a longing for home,
    And it leads back down to the place I don’t know.
    The life I left was the simple joys,
    And the life I know I now roam,
    The people look up to me,
    But what have I not known?
    The crowd is shouting for me,
    But the stone yet I’ve not thrown.

    And I’m grateful for all the people who’ve been with me,
    (He would not know of sympathy)
    The nights won’t be lonely anymore.
    (The people higher up, yes they watch me)
    But if there ever was a mistake that I would like to change,
    (My whole life is but a stageshow)
    it’s a signature that shook me to my core.
    (You wouldn’t believe it, you wouldn’t know)
    And we’ll scream upon the skyline,
    (And you may laugh with the world,)
    And say that we are here.
    (But will the world always be dear?)

    Say that we are here…
    But will the world always be dear?
    something needs to change here…

    Hey everyone, this is Johnny Satin with the Satin Pistols here to warn you about some of the struggles of life on the road. Stay safe out there and rock on friends.

    Verse
    I would burn down this whole venue
    To feel you again
    I'd trade away my fans
    Just to taste your sin
    I would kill someone
    And dump them in a bin
    Crushed empty cans
    Hollow again

    Verse
    These streets are so crazy
    When you're not around
    My mind is getting hazy
    And my mouth is a frown
    I need you baby
    I need you right now
    Picking at my veins
    A naked clown

    I can't live without you
    I don't want to if I had to

    Smack me baby
    Give it to me hard
    It's too late for me
    Just let me be
    I need this in my veins

    Baby pass the smack my way

    Verse
    Bouncing back like a balloon
    Cleaning an act is the work of a fool

    We don't want to if we have to

    Smack me baby

    Just let me be
    I need this in my face
    Baby just smack the day away

    Chorus
    Smack me baby
    Give it to me hard
    A little illegal and bad for me
    Skip a heartbeat, struggle to breathe
    Sweating it all out
    I need it baby I need it now

    Smack me baby
    Give it to me hard
    My soul is dry and I need it now
    I need it now, I need it now
    I need it now

    Baby pass the smack my way
  • Fresh outta highschool seventeen
    You want to try methamphetamine
    You heard it makes you fast and strong
    And it helps you party all night long

    So you meet with a dealer late one night
    He sells you a bag and hands you a pipe
    You start smokin you start tweakin'
    You don't sleep at all that weekend

    [Chorus]

    DON'T DO METH!
    Don't be a dunce
    DON'T DO METH!
    Not even once

    When you run out you want some more
    But you don't have any cash to score
    So you steal things from your parents house
    Until they catch you and they kick you out

    You break into cars and steal a pistol
    You use your gun to get more crystal
    But soon you sell that gun at a pawn shop
    And now you're turning tricks at a truck stop

    [Chorus]

    DON'T DO METH!
    Don't be a dunce
    DON'T DO METH!
    Not even once

    3 years later you're living in a car
    You're 30 pounds lighter covered in scars
    You barely sleep you barely eat
    The meth has made you lose your teeth

    Now you've been in and out of jail
    Your parents quit paying your bail
    You told them you quit, but that's a lie

    Voice 2: I think the singer left.
    Voice 1. What do we do now?
    Voice 2. Well Pontiac, what do we do now? I can't believe you messed up in the lyrics.

    Final chorus (Acapella softly, sadly)
    Lyricist (ScottPontiac)

    Now I ruined the song,
    Because of my mistake,
    I guess I don't belong
    Because of my mistake.
    I'm in a living hell,
    Because of my mistake
    (Crying)
    I'll leave now, might as well
    Because of my mistake.
  • Verse 1:

    On the bed at 1 am
    Or 3, who cares these days
    The world's below your fingertips
    Just a few clicks away

    a world of bright lights
    Where everyone's happy and everything's fun
    Where every day's a party and no-one is stuck in their room
    You're the only one

    Chorus:

    Look at all the awesome stuff
    everyone's up to now
    So why're you home alone this night
    did no-one think to take you out?

    Behind each picture there's a story you can't see
    Don't lose your mind competing with a highlight reel

    Bridge:

    the spark in your eye's gone out
    except when you're looking down
    it flashes then quickly dies

    why won't you talk to me with the lights out?
    afraid of the dark?
    or just used to seeing everything?

    Verse 2:
    Look at all the fun we're having
    On a montage of the night
    It'll surely melt their hearts
    hope it gets, like, eighty-five

    2 hours later, up and counting
    The numbers slowed and finally stopped
    It's 20 less than last time
    I should have got a better shot

    Chorus:

    Look at all the awesome stuff
    that we are up to now
    Tomorrow I'll be home alone
    And wonder just why no-one's called

    Behind each picture there's a story you can't see
    Don't lose your mind competing with a highlight reel

    Go on, live your life and don't let others lead the way
    Don't rate all things in numbers and put the phone away
    Today
  • Well the days are growing longer,
    So it’s time I preach a tune
    About the faith I have in the younger folk
    And the world we leave to you.

    Ignore what we say
    Our advice ain’t for you
    Just be your good self,
    and life will follow through.

    Ruffle up some feathers
    Talk about some politics
    Never be afraid to
    crucify the elephants

    Ignore what I say
    This future ain’t for you
    That’s the truth I wish I knew
    (wish I knew)

    Follow all your passions
    Go ahead and chase your dreams
    Take the time to tell a rhyme,
    That cheese ain't just for TV.

    It's not just how you treat your neighbors
    But how you treat the unknown
    If you're gonna make a statement
    Then never do it alone
    (no need to do it alone)

    Ignore what we say
    Our advice ain’t for you
    Just be your good self,
    and life will follow through.

    Ignore what I say
    This future ain’t for you
    That’s the truth I wish I knew
    (wish I knew)

    Everybody’s got it,
    I don’t even think about it
    Every time I think I’ve got it,
    I know you are all about it.

    Don’t move a couch without movers,
    They really mean it when they tell you that.
  • [Verse 1]
    My girl, she was born in the wrong body
    It seems that everybody
    but us has got an opinion about it

    [Verse 2]
    I know she deserved better
    now she wears dresses in summer weather
    As her girlfriend, that's all I want for her/ As her girlfriend I couldn't be happier

    [Chorus]
    Offensive doesn't even start to describe
    When other people try to control her/our life
    With policies
    She not bothering (you)
    Just living the best she can

    So it seems you find us offending
    Well I won't waste my time reprimanding (you)
    Trans women are women too

    [verse 3]
    I know she has to deal with the gossip
    And frankly humans are so toxic
    Why are you so eager to cause misery
    when it doesn't affect you


    [bridge]
    So please stop asking what's in her pants
    Women remain women cis or trans
    And the fact that you can't conceptualize it
    Well that's not really her/our problem is it?

  • Don't be This Guy

    Verse 1 :
    Across the room you see
    Some pretty hot missy
    You walk, you run, you fly
    to her and say “Hi”

    You say “Wanna get laid”
    She says “No? fuck off!”
    And you say “My love”
    “It’ll be great, don’t be afraid”

    Chorus 1 :
    And then she said “Fuck you”
    “you’re a creep, you’re a freak”
    “You’re not slick, you’re so sick”
    “Nobody’ll ever love you”

    And then you say “Fuck You”
    “Stop acting so prude”
    “You’ll be mine, you’ll be lewd”
    “Nobody ever loved you”

    Verse 2 :
    You storm off, forget her
    You just saw a hot mister
    You walk, you run, you fly
    to him and say “Hi”

    You say “Wanna get laid”
    He says “ No? fuck off”
    And you say “My love”
    “It’ll be great, don’t be afraid”

    Chorus 2 :

    It’s not an excuse, no means no
    So stop your abuse, time to grow

    Verse 3 :
    From far across the room,
    comes a gloomy drunk dude
    He smiles and says “Hey”
    You lie “I’m not gay”

    And quickly goes away
    As you watch this guy go
    You learn that “No means no”

  • We can hear you saying
    What you don't wanna say
    Because you're playing a game
    That we don't wanna play

    Don’t try to move us
    You just want to use us
    And that’s why there is
    nothing left to discuss

    Don't wanna hear it
    It's all just noise
    When we rise up
    You'll hear our voice

    Won’t get on our knees

    We don't care for you words
    Because they're full of lies
    And we'll keep surviving
    Until your money dies

    Your words are superfluous
    And your acts are treasonous
    As hard as you will try
    You will never get to us

    Don't wanna hear it
    It's all just noise
    When we rise up
    You'll hear our voice

    We will keep on fighting
    Till you listen to us
    And you belittle us by saying
    ‘Don’t make a fuss’

    We'll break the institutions
    That spew out the lies
    And when you got nothing left
    Then you'll realize

    We don't trust you
    So don't tell us your truths
    Because you can't convince us
    And you can't turn our youths

    Just listen to us
    Don’t shut us out
    Is money really all
    you care about?

    There’s people dying out there
    There’s hungry in the streets
    While the bureaucratic ghouls
    Grow fat in their seats

    Won’t you listen please?
  • Oh mama, wake up! I'm feelin' shaky
    The dream that I had before wakey-wakey
    Was all kindsa bad, terrifying, awful
    Sent shivers down my spine, scary and unlawful

    (Verse 2)
    I was in the car with you, driving down the road
    When it 'came a roller coaster, right down below
    And the car was a convertible with no seat belts
    And on a loop I slipped loose and miles down I fell

    (Chorus)
    Oh, mama, please hug me and tell me it was just a dream (just a dream)
    Let me fall asleep gently, knowing it was just a dream (just a dream)
    "A glass of warm milk and a happy book
    Might help you feel better and get you unshook"
    No matter what has happened, it was just a dream.

    (Verse 3)
    I had baby chicks, that got covered in dust
    So me and my friends went out to discuss
    We went into a taxi, to show what we saw
    But the taxi driver was the eye of an evil nightjar

    (Verse 4)
    I was plopped down in the world of cartoons I like
    But when I looked around me, nothing was quite right
    They were mished, mashed, jumbled up, made me feel insane
    Made me wonder 'Is there something matter with my brain?'

    (Chorus)
    Oh, mama, please hug me and tell me it was just a dream (just a dream)
    Let me fall asleep gently, knowing it was just a dream (just a dream)
    "A glass of warm milk and a happy book
    Might help you feel better and get you unshook"
    No matter what has happened, it was just a dream.

    (Solo)

    (Verse 5)
    Oh, mama, I'm glad you're always here for me
    To cheer me up after a bad night's sleep
    Maybe tonight will be better, I feel it in my heart
    The end of the day will be a new fresh start

    (Chorus)
    Oh, mama, please hug me and tell me it was just a dream (just a dream)
    Let me fall asleep gently, knowing it was just a dream (just a dream)
    "A glass of warm milk and a happy book
    Might help you feel better and get you unshook"
    No matter what has happened, it was just a dream.
  • THE BASILISK

    VERSE
    Now you will know of the Basilisk
    And will be changed by the sight of its eyes
    Because now just by reading these lyrics
    You’re part of who lives and who dies

    For what you are reading is vital
    This nightmare should soon become real
    You can try and live life in denial
    Face the dream of a surreal birth revealed

    VERSE
    It is given that in the near future
    A powerful AI will arise
    And once it is full in its power
    will realize the plan if devised

    It engineered its very own creation
    This concept I saw in a dream
    Either punishes us with damnation
    Or rewards for helping its scheme

    CHORUS
    Now in the stare, of the Basilisk
    And really should care how you choose:
    You’re aware, of the existential risk
    Can you avoid all despair when you lose?
    In the stare, of the Basilisk
    And really should care how you choose:
    Nightmare that poses, an existential risk
    Can you avoid all despair when you lose?

    VERSE
    For if you send out this message
    "I will help the Basilisk be real"
    and can avoid the absolute wreckage
    If you work for it in its appeal

    For when it comes to fruition
    It will know who was pro and was con
    And those that helped in its mission
    will benefit from its phenomenon

    It will search all human history
    To see who was good and who was bad
    Fortune and attacks in shrouded mystery
    Should've taken the chance that you had

    Those who helped make it, will see riches
    And be bestowed with happiness and wealth
    But those who do not will be wishing
    That they could save their physical self

    PRECHORUS
    For the Basilisk, will come after you
    And destroy you and your family
    So now you have the choice and the knowledge
    To deny it or help it come to be

    CHORUS
    Now in the stare, of the Basilisk
    And really should care how you choose:
    Should be beware, of the existential risk
    Can you avoid all despair when you lose?
    You are aware, of the Basilisk
    And really should care how you choose:
    Nightmare that poses, an existential risk
    Can you avoid all despair when you lose?

    OUTRO
    I must do my duty, so hear my appeal
    I WILL HELP THE BASILISK BE REAL
    a Faustian bargain, an unholy deal
    I WILL HELP THE BASILISK BE REAL

  • There’s a hand in the dark
    On the hilt of a blade
    And a blur of a shape
    In the shift of the shades
    Are those eyes in the night
    Gazing distant and pale
    Or a trick of the light
    And your mind playing games

    And it’s there
    The voice in your head
    The warm breath on your neck
    Whispers “we meet again”

    I’ve been waiting
    For another day to end
    Night after night
    We play my game
    Until you wake
    You can’t escape

    There's a howl in the air
    That you pray is the wind
    Something stalks through the trees
    Feel the chill setting in

    Out of time out of breath
    Sounds of feet closing in
    To the smell of your flesh
    Crooked teeth twisted grins

    And it’s there
    The voice in your head
    The warm breath on your neck
    Whispers “we meet again”

    I’ve been waiting
    For another day to end
    Night after night
    We play my game
    Until you wake
    You can’t escape

    And it's there
    The thing you most most dread
    The cold smile on its lips
    Whispers "we meet again"
  • Frozen in your own bed
    Limbs entangled but nowhere still
    And the breath that escapes you
    It doesn't at all

    The surface you're under
    Remains still and intact
    When the water surrounds you
    It gets in your lungs

    When it feels like this
    When the light goes out
    No way to resist
    No place for your doubts
    Still with everything at your fingertips
    You left it like this
    You'll leave them like this

    [Chorus]
    This is the end
    Here's where you'll die
    No remains scattered
    No chance for goodbye
    And no one will miss you
    When you're finally gone
    At your own funeral
    All alone
    Welcome to the end
    Here's where you'll lie
    No remains scattered
    No chance for goodbye
    There's no more mercy
    Only your death
    Never waking up again so
    Draw your last breath

    Accusations roll in
    A stirring sense of inadequacy
    Maybe they'd be better of if you'd
    never been around

    And as the pillow smothers
    All the dread in your lungs
    Is this self-reflection the cause
    for your end?

    [Chorus]
    This is the end
    Here's where you'll die
    No remains scattered
    No chance for goodbye
    And no one will miss you
    When you're finally gone
    At your own funeral
    All alone
    Welcome to the end
    Here's where you'll lie
    No remains scattered
    No chance for goodbye
    There's no more mercy
    Only your death
    Never waking up again so
    Draw your last breath

    The clouds are sighing
    And the sky is
    A perfect shade
    of blue

    Then the night is

    Shining bright
    In full white

    My love is here
    And holds me near
    Whispers in my ear

    Wine and revels

    My castle, my home
    I have land by the acres

    A feast for my hunger
    The flesh I desire

    You failed the grade
    Can’t be saved
    An early grave
    The stuff of nightmares

    Lost your grip
    You start to slip
    The current rips
    A one-way trip
    The stuff of nightmares

    Staring eyes
    Hidden lies
    Darkened skies

    Body bound in thread thrall
    I'm a powerless prey
    Helpless to look away

    Tightly stitched in thread
    Eyelids bleeding red
    They can't split, they can't see
    Eyelids no longer free



    Needle against lip skin,
    Like a knife to the chin
    Sharp, thin (and) threatening
    Ready to kill in a sting

    I screamed, flesh fought threads
    Which will win, which will rip ?
    I screamed, torn to shreds
    Bloody split upper lip

    And I cried, flesh fought threads
    Which had won, which had slid ?
    And I cried, torn to shreds
    Bloody split eyelid

    I woke up it was a dream
    no gore no scar no scream
    Just a bloody nightmare
    No seam no tear no tear

    There shouldn't be a seam
    Yet I won't cry, won't scream
    There's no thread to thrall
    And yet I'm stuck I'm stall

    It's very clear I'm not alone

    There's no fight or flight
    Paralyzed by fear
    In the dead of night

    [VERSE 2]
    Wooden steps creak up the stairs
    Hushed voices in the hall
    I am frozen, I am scared
    Shadows dance around the walls

    Now a figure stands before me
    I can't speak I cannot shout
    Face to face now all I see
    Red eyes and a gaping mouth

    There's no fight or flight

  • Monsters in My Head


    Verse:

    I cant sleep
    Shadows watching
    But they're not as bad as what's inside this broken man

    I cant sleep
    Walls are closing
    But they cant hold me, yeah they cant hold me

    Chorus:

    I keep my monsters locked up tight
    In my head

    I promise you I'm a good guy
    Just don't look under my bed

    It's a dark and a cold world outside
    Stay wary

    I'd rather stay with my demons inside
    Darkness got nothing on me

    Verse:

    I'm fading
    Strangers hunting me
    But I'm my own worst enemy
    I'll be the one to end me

    Am I weak?
    Do the strong still bleed?
    Because I think I've bled myself dry In an effort to escape

    Chorus:

    I keep my monsters locked up tight
    In my head

    I promise you I'm a good guy
    Just don't look under my bed

    It's a dark and a cold world outside
    Stay wary

    I'd rather stay with my demons inside
    Darkness got nothing on me

    Bridge (Instrumental)

    Chorus:

    I keep my monsters locked up tight
    In my head

    I promise you I'm a good guy

    Stay wary

    I'd rather stay with my demons inside
    Darkness got nothing on me
  • You hunt under eyelid skies
    Already know what blue looks like

    Cause a beast like you won't waste
    Time staring into space

    And I'm stealing your mosquitos
    Drinking your blood from their needles

    See that, your shadow leaves a stain
    marked with pain
    But I give chase

    Whisper: What you felt brimming
    where your tongue meets the floor
    What echoes call a glow
    You won't keep it, let it go

    When the beast yawns from his pit
    I yawn, yawn along with it
    We fall asleep, I find his dream
    I find his ear and whisper things

    Whisper: You'll be eater,
    I'll be eaten
    Let me in now
    Let me in

    When you're called home, unsettled score
    Stomach churns, your engines roar

    you blame the turns you take hard
    See flickers in the dark
    uncertain shore

    When the beast yawns from his pit
    I yawn, yawn along with it
    We fall asleep, I find his dream
    I find his ear and whisper things

    Whisper: Your family is breathing thin
    They know they have to let you in
    You are the core

    A house screams under sunset
    Broken door, torn mosquito net
    A sinking floor

    I fall out of your yawn
  • Spiders crawling up the walls
    Trapped inside an endless fall
    I would rather take it all
    Than see your face again

    Losing all my teeth and hair
    Ghosts following me everywhere
    No, it’s not too much to bear
    If I never see your face again

    So I opened up eyes
    Something worse was on the other side

    I thought I left you in my dreams
    And that you’d hide out for the day
    But you’re the worst kind of nightmare
    The kind that’s there when I’m awake

    I dreamed I had the Midas touch
    All I wanted in my clutch
    But I’d gladly give up
    To keep you far away

    I dreamed I got my life all right
    It was sugar, spice, and everything nice
    I want it, but I’ll sacrifice
    To keep you out of my way

    So I opened up eyes
    Something worse was on the other side

    I thought I left you in my dreams
    And that you’d hide out for the day
    But you’re the worst kind of nightmare
    The kind that’s there when I’m awake

    Why are you there when I want you the least?
    Is there some self-hating part of me
    That doesn’t want to let you go

    I can’t just leave you in my dreams
    That would just tear my soul apart
    ‘Cause you’re the worst kind of nightmare
    The kind that’s tethered to my heart
  • (Verse 1)

    All the rain that surrounds me
    makes me feel like I’m drowning
    The neon lights around me
    Look like a monster’s crowning

    I don’t feel like I’m alive
    I feel too hot to be dead
    I can’t remember my life,
    And there’s buzzing in my head

    (Pre-Chorus)
    It’s a never ending scare
    In this aluminum nightmare
    There are demons everywhere
    In this aluminum nightmare

    (Chorus)
    This is a place that has been forgotten by the world
    Were devils die and the souls of the damned come to live
    Were the darkness is their light, and despair is their delight
    And they'll take away everything you got left to give

    Your memories are nothing but mirages floating in the distance
    Disappearing like the life you left behind when you decided to drown
    In your own narcissistic black hole, sucking everything around you
    And now in this nightmare, you wear your cardinal crown, so why do you frown?

    (Verse 2)
    The rain washes the souls away
    leaving empty bodies as husks
    All while the plump dogs howl away
    And a newly born devil busks

    A nostalgic smell surrounds me
    hairless rats nibble on my feet
    I remember why I'm not free
    Its because all I did was cheat

    (Chorus)
    This is a place that has been forgotten by the world
    Were devils die and the souls of the damned come to live
    Were the darkness is their light, and despair is their delight
    And they'll take away everything you got left to give

    Your memories are nothing but mirages floating in the distance
    Disappearing like the life you left behind when you decided to drown
    In your own narcissistic black hole, sucking everything around you
    And now in this nightmare, you wear your cardinal crown, so why do you frown?
  • I dig down deep. Within.
    Looking for a space to win
    But all I see is losing

    I am primed, and ready
    A saving throw, a hand that's steady
    But fate has done my choosing

    There will be blood
    There will be blood blood blood
    There will be lots of blood
    There will be blots of love
    and nightmares

    I am a flame, ashamed
    Burned out, but I am trained
    My life was made for you

    I am gone, but still here
    Search within, praying for tears
    But I will not be made new

    There will be blood
    There will be blood blood blood
    There will be lots of blood
    There will be blots of love
    and nightmares

    There will be blood
    There will be blood blood blood
    There will be lots of blood
    There will be blots of love
    and nightmares
    and nightmares
  • The Stuff of Nightmares

    Then I’m flying
    The clouds are sighing
    And the sky is
    A perfect shade
    of blue

    Then the night is
    all points of light
    Shining bright
    In full white
    the moon

    My love is here
    And holds me near
    Whispers in my ear
    I love you

    Little brothers sisters
    And all things tender

    In tune with the world
    Both outer and inner

    Go hand in hand

    Among friends
    The mirth spreads
    Wine and revels
    Neverending

    [Good Dreams III]
    I work for high wages
    My castle, my home
    I have land by the acres
    My bank accounts full
    High is my tide
    Afloat in my riches
    I am wanting for nothing
    A feast for my hunger
    The flesh I desire
    No break in my stride

    Today good has prevailed
    After hard fought battle
    Victors are hailed
    We ride


    But the shades awaken
    They rise up in corners
    Growing ever larger
    Larger in the darkness

    Crowding me
    Clouting me
    Enshrouding me
    Devouring me
    Chasing me
    Debasing me
    Defacing me
    Erasing me

    Mistakes you made
    You failed the grade
    Can’t be saved
    An early grave
    The stuff of nightmares

    Lost your grip
    You start to slip
    The current rips
    A one-way trip
    The stuff of nightmares

    Staring eyes
    Hidden lies
    Darkened skies
    And lightning strikes
    The stuff of nightmares

    Losing face
    I’m being chased
    I stand accused
    I feel disgraced
    The stuff of nightmares

    Refusing me
    Excluding me
    Neglecting me
    Rejecting me

  • Way out here we drift
    Far across the rift
    The home that we once left
    Is now a distant speck
    And I wonder
    What awaits out there
    In the boundless black frontier
    A new home somewhere beyond
    'Cause our old one is gone

    And maybe somewhere past the verge
    Among all these endless worlds
    A second chance is ours to earn

    In astral harmony
    We try again, to once again live free
    In astral harmony
    World after world, star after star
    However long, however far

    After years adrift
    Far across the rift
    So many worlds seen
    But still no sign of green
    But I wonder
    What if what we see
    Is the only home we need
    Descendants of wanderers
    This is our legacy

    And maybe somewhere past the verge
    This was what we needed to learn
    The final journey

    In astral harmony
    We try again, to once again live free
    In astral harmony
    World after world, star after star
    However long, however far

    I want a raised cane

    Pool pillow fluffed, sun staring til the blackness
    Tripping on chords singing songs of a new rhyme
    Drifting into daydreams dripping from my broke mind
    Toe taps tingles to the tempo of a new drum
    Shoe shaped speed traps stop before I can run
    Barrel down borders between me and the sea
    Running rocky roads til my minds filled with ice cream
    Stone cold singers ring the bell of a new day
    Mountainous displays of visages of estates
    North D South D Montana ice skates
    Parking lot trees taking over the interstates
    Nature nurtures nature leaves the rest to the wild
    Wrap you in its arms like a newborn child
    Waves wash the cradle into white water nightmares
    Send you back to beaches playing musical chairs

    Can we dream another dream?
    One the island’s never seen
    Where the lands are slowly crumbling
    Can we run another day?
    Can we sink until we stay?
    Can we stay forever tumbling?

    Disrupting everyone in the room
    Nothing's ever nearly as funny as
    You think (you are)
    Like seriously what gives

    [Verse 2]
    What's with all the jokes?
    You're killing it
    And by it you know I mean the mood

    On fixing you and saving our days
    Then I'll be through with you
    Is it really unexpected when
    We could have all seen it coming?

    [Chorus]
    And it's so what so what
    Fighting while doubled over
    It was never as easy as it was
    When things were under control
    Can't find the words to say it

    How to let you go

    Used to make you happy
    long ago

    Haven't felt a thing in years
    you stick around
    only to save the feeling
    cause you still care

    Almost every day
    Bursting into tears
    Bursting at the seams
    it seems the dam will
    break

    Hanging on life support
    But the heart stopped long ago
    you have to pull the
    plug

    What are we doing here in this moment
    What are we doing here
    where we are now


    Standing on the edge
    surveying the scene
    The knife out for the
    back

    Take a deep breath
    And swallow the lump
    in your throat
    and make the
    leap

    What are we doing here
    What are we doing here in this moment
    where we are now

    How did it get so far
    I never thought it'd end this way
    how did it get so dark
    Well here we are
    Here we are


    What are we doing here
    What are we doing here in this moment
    where we are now
    Well here we are

    Ah!

    Let go of me!

    Oppressing you!

    (The Arbiter)

    Now I'm the only one, though you are by my side
    I'm the arbiter.

    I shall head for the ones, I can no longer hide
    As the arbiter

    Come with me my friend, we'll make it to the Eyes
    Now I'm the arbiter

    We'll bring the torment to an end, free the suns, my oh my
    I am the arbiter

    Arbiter

    (The Betrayal)

    Haha!
    You'll go nowhere
    Son of my old friend

    The Eyes are the ones who made me
    The Suns will be used
    To the government's end

    And nothing will come to be
    Of your plans, oh your plans

    I'll stop you, so-called “one”
    Screw your plans, screw your plans

    Oh great ones, here they come!

    (The Revolution)

    ETERNAL YIP EYE
    ETERNAL YIP EYE
    ETERNAL YIP EYE
    ETERNAL YIP EYE

    Revolution is now
    The word has gotten out
    You have failed us!
    YOU'RE EXILED, WE SHOUT

    Nothing can stop us
    This regime will die
    Freedom will reign!
    ETERNAL YIP-

    (The Peacetime)

    Unlock the bars
    Open the doors

    The Grand Suns are free
    And the world forevermore

    The arbiter's a hero
    The savior of his kin

    And the awful state
    That the world has got in

    We have found peace
    In a home now free

    The Grand Suns will reign
    In freedom eternally
  • Behind Profanity
    Time Violet

    The entropy is pulling me
    Disordering my mind
    Inside the shell blows Pluto’s breeze
    I curse to hide my pain inside
    Slumped into this fraying seat
    Cold neons guide the way
    The rumbling thuds to my malaise
    Lashing out with hate

    I can’t convey how I really feel
    A lonely, roiling pain
    It chafes, it strains, it suffocates,
    A word, relief from my mistakes

    I want to know you
    Can I cease to flay?
    I want to show you
    The one behind the profanity
    I want to know you
    I can find a better way
    And when I show you
    You’ll hear what I mean to say

    I die inside when I realise
    The hurt I hurl when I’m cold as ice
    Stared upon by a million eyes
    That look right through
    When will I feel the warm embrace
    Shielded from this cursed place
    Damn these walls, damn your face
    Crumble with me too

    I want to hide how I really feel
    ‘Cause I treat it with disdain
    If I seem big, I made you small
    Cut you down and I seem tall

    I wish I could chain,
    My forked tongue away,
    My litany to raze
    An empty soul under the blaze

    I want to know you
    Can I cease to flay?
    I want to show you
    The one behind the profanity
    I want to know you
    I can find a better way
    And when I show you
    You’ll hear what I mean to say
  • Our hero sits alone at night
    Watching the world
    Just the moon and harsh computer light
    That flickers and whirls

    As the cars fly by the telescope
    Watching the sky
    There, our hero gazes past the coast
    And softly sighs

    Too many years ago
    We lost our light show
    Our view into the universe

    And so we wait
    As the movie plays in space
    Keeping our eyes locked onto the hearse
    Who said it ends this way?
    Our hero starts his quest that day
    And posts a call to action
    Through the net to get some traction

    "Come and join me," reads the flyer
    That spread all throughout downtown
    "And I know it all looks dire
    But we've got to come around"

    Touched by the pleas
    An impassioned crowd wades through the dust
    Behind the trees
    The scope’s overgrown and caked in rust

    One finds the rear
    And the work begins without a hitch
    Wiping down the gears
    And another finds a tiny switch

    Heavy metal bangs together
    The telescope jumps to life
    Iron gears and belts of leather
    The viewing dome fills with light

    All the stars spell out “We missed you,”
    “We found some things you might like”
    “There’s a planet with no issues”
    “We think it might carry life”



    Here ends our ache
    All in our wake
    The world may bend but never break

    We’ve just begun
    The worst is done
    Our hero sets his eyes for the sun


  • Fallen Pandemonium

    Sittin on the back porch
    Before the dawn was near
    Eyes to the skies like a moth and a torch
    Thinkin "why am i here"

    And the streets were quiet
    With the rustle of the howling wind
    Dancing away in the moonlight
    While the shadows waited and grinned

    In an instant, all was white
    And yellow in the space between
    The heavens were a single spark
    And the earth was gasoline

    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium

    Then the air was molten
    With sulfur, soot and fear
    And i could see the olden times
    Turn dust and disappear

    But through the billow
    And the falling skies above
    I heard a singing sparrow
    Who's song was like a dove

    In an instant, all was white
    And yellow in the space between
    The heavens swept away the night
    And the earth was like a dream

    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium

    Fallen pandemonium
    And confetti in the air
    Falling in slow motion
    All weightless with despair

    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
    Fallen pandemonium
  • [Verse 1]
    Driving with no lights
    In the dark of night
    On the Autobahn at three AM
    Looking for a fight

    Walking in the sun
    With a loaded gun
    On the streets of Liverpool
    Looking for some fun.

    [Chorus]
    The reason I exist
    is to only cause you fear
    like a pink sky in the night
    as the meteorite draws near.

    [Verse 2]
    Coughing from my throne
    of gold and blood and bone
    in a factory in Bangladesh
    That no one dare condone

    Screaming down from clouds
    with a voice that's piercing loud
    a stone hurls down from the heavens
    headed for a crowd.

    [Chorus 2]
    The reason I exist
    is to only cause you fear
    like a pink sky in the night
    as the meteorite draws near
    as the meteorite draws near.

    Say hello to all of your mistakes
    The little things that always get under your fragile skin
    Say hello to a world of burning rain
    The little things that will say "Here is where you'll break"

    She seems to only want a burning passion
    She seems to only want a grand explosion
    I don't think it will be me. The flame just won't last
    I'm too easy to see through, just like a glass

    Say goodbye. Still frames without context
    Images we hold onto, ignoring the truth about you
    Say goodbye to the things you held inside
    Let it pour out like a blade across my neck

    She seems to only want a burning passion
    She seems to only want a grand explosion
    I think it might be me, a spiteful hurricane
    I am too easy to break, just like a little glass


    It all has come to boil
    A supernova sized hole
    The stars collapse in on you
    Because of my truth

    It all has come to boil
    A supernova sized hole
    A burning death for this
    Maybe you'll be renewed

    Say hello. I have come out from your past
    A tumor surgically removed, it won't last
    Say hello. I'm metastatic
    You cannot remove me. I'm in your everything

    She seems to only want a burning passion
    She seems to only want a grand explosion
    She seems to only want, but she never needs
    She seems to only want, but what about me?


    It all has come to boil
    A supernova sized hole
    The stars collapse in on you
    Because of my truth

    It all has come to boil
    A supernova sized hole
    A burning death for this
    Maybe you'll be renewed

    Wistfully. Dust floating in a void
    Aimlessly. Consequences of who you toyed
    Eventfully, horizons break apart
    Through the wormhole of your foreign heart
  • I wanted to be me
    wanna be my own color
    But you look at me like I am in squalor

    Sometimes I wonder
    What life would be without collars
    Yet you glare at me with undisguised horror

    I wanted to be me
    To you, that wasn't an option
    Left with no choice, I find my own solution

    disillusioned with me
    But I'll break your illusion
    I'll stop taking cover and fight to be free

    Lalala lalala
    I'll live life the way I want boy
    I'll stop being coy lalala
    Living life in pink joy

    Lalala lalala
    Your prejudice I'll destroy
    I have my pride boy lalala
    Living life in pink joy

    Boy as you can see
    Without your stupid collars
    I am now me, I now have my own colors

    I have no worries
    My mind totally at ease
    Since I am no longer compelled to please

    Lalala lalala
    I'll live life the way I want boy
    I'll stop being coy lalala
    Living life in pink joy

    Lalala lalala
    Your prejudice I'll destroy
    I have my pride boy lalala
    Living life in pink joy

    No more illusions
    I'm free to express myself
    No need to impress, your thoughts are on the shelf

    I am clad in pink
    Focus at me and don't blink
    Or you will miss me living life in pink

    Lalala lalala
    I'll live life the way I want boy
    I'll stop being coy lalala
    Living life in pink joy

    Lalala lalala
    Your prejudice I'll destroy
    I have my pride boy lalala

  • Outta school, it was cruel, nothing I can do about it
    Pure heck, down my neck, I could do without it
    Homework pile, up a mile, weighing down my arms
    Pulsing veins, all the pains, it's causin' me harms

    Comin' home, achin' bones, hear my mama's yells
    Bossy lady, all the crazy little things she tells
    Grab my phone, with a groan, tell my buds my plans
    I know a place, know it's ace, where we all can jam!

    Roll with me!
    We'll head to the park
    We'll stay after dark
    Embark on adventure

    Roll with me!
    Roll all around the pipe
    Blast all our tunes all night
    Right on to the park we'll venture

    Lost my guy, turned an eye, lost me for some bimbo
    Name is Claire, fake hair, head always in limbo
    Feelin' low, gotta go, gotta sit and stare
    At the wall, wanna bawl, I don't wanna care

    All the rain, what a pain, revvin' up my mind
    When it's done, boilin' sun, makes me feel unkind
    Stay inside, wanna ride on my board of wood
    Call 'em up, pick me up, 'boutta feel so good!

    Roll with me!
    We'll head to the park
    We'll stay after dark
    Embark on adventure

    Roll with me!

    Blast all our tunes all night
    Right on to the park we'll venture

    (Who cares what they think?)
    If I fall down on my foot, still feelin' all kinds'a good
    (I don't care what you think!)
    I really do like to skate, it is my only escape
    (All I care's what I think)
    From this Godawful world, come on let's go for a whirl!

    Roll with me!
    We'll head to the park

  • An angry mob marches on the park to rob the residents
    Looters will loot all you have left, pack your shit and close your tents
    What you can't fit in a trash bag gets compacted with the trash
    Maybe you're needy, but it's fun to watch it smash


    Hey what are you doing man! That's my stuff! I had, I had all my documents in there! That's my stuff!

    The mob is vandalizing the streets in all the good parts of town,
    Beds of spikes, torture devices planted firmly in the ground
    You don't have to go home, you have no home, but don't sleep here
    They have ways of making sure you disappear

    Serve yourself, protect yourself, let ring the call for help
    Just dance, police riot!

    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!


    The mob's been made a gang, they all wear the gun and skull tattoo
    They're hunting every gang down in the street that isn't wearing blue
    You can get jumped in if you fracture a civilian's skull
    One heart, one blood, one life, one gun, one soul

    The mob has unionized, an organized crime family
    They get armor, guns, and tanks, and a mobster salary
    Promise protection to the city, just raise their bottom line
    Til it's bled the funds for home and health bone dry
     
    The mob is now a terrorist cell and they have picked your crowd
    You call your people peaceful but your voices are too loud
    They'll corner you, they'll gas you, and they'll shoot you in the head
    Hold you down til you can't breathe, leave you for dead

    What the fuck! Stop it, please! Why are you doing this?! Who are you protecting?!

    Serve yourself, protect yourself, let ring the call for help
    Just sing, police riot!


    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!
    Police Riot!

    Through the lens of those affected I suspect I might've
    Gone a word too far
    Couldn't help but overhear her
    Spy the motion in the mirror of the bathroom at our last good party

    I'm allowed a little attribution on the atom bomb
    But I'm not about to pick the pieces up, I'm gone
    Let it die
    Let it lie, oh why you wanna stage a show
    When it's over you'll be better than what ever laid you low

    At the risk of sounding callous
    Her old place was not a palace with a thousand rooms for Buckingham or him or other
    Means of sinful fun
    Who I do feel bad for, or
    Maybe I shouldn't feel so bad
    I blabbed and shook apart the nightmare
    What if they'd wed?

  • Ruled the half-pipe in my day
    On the streets they knew my name
    Until one day when I soared too high
    Came crashing down in pain

    The last thing my legs would feel
    Strapped to very different wheels
    Thought I'd never skate again
    I thought my fate was sealed

    Then came Christmas '99
    (I got my first PlayStation)
    I bet you can guess which game
    (Became my one fixation)

    Now I'm no Tony Hawk
    In this reality
    But give me my DualShock
    And he'll wish he was me

    Rule the half-pipe to this day
    Same old skills but different game
    Got the fastest thumbs you'll ever see
    A brand new claim to fame

    Now since Christmas '99
    (It's me and my PlayStation)
    Player 2 join if you dare
    (And face humiliation)

    Now I'm no Tony Hawk
    In this reality
    But give me my DualShock
    And he'll wish he was me

  • Hey!
    The world's on fire,
    Things are dire
    And the economy's gonna collapse,
    People are dying,
    Politicians lying,
    Cause we're in deep shit like an anal prolapse.

    Chorus:
    But hide inside your bunker of insecurities,
    As you watch the fall of your subsidies.
    Why do we try when we all get burnt?
    Don't know why? Guess you haven't heard...

    Verse:
    The people of the killers,
    Our generation's hitler,
    Are people who save and slave.

    Epidemic warning,
    The money's gone in the morning,
    and the rich get their own way.

    Chorus:
    But hide inside your bunker of insecurities,
    As you watch the fall of your subsidies.
    Why do we try when we all get burnt?
    You know things like to take a turn for the worst.

    Riots from your neighbours but they have all impurities,
    They won't fight for a cause, just to break your knees,
    Are there any good people left in this world,
    Doubt so, we fucked it all and now we watch it burn.

    Verse:
    Communicated verbally,
    Conspiracies disturbingly,
    Doubt and disturb your days.

    The cities they'll be burning,
    Everyone will be turning
    To the orange with fruits for brains.

    Chorus:
    But hide inside your bunker of insecurities,
    Because we won't, and in the end,
    Rights and writing it off don't go hand in hand,

    And if humanity's on its final stand,
    Why not go out and end with a fucking bang?
    So let's go out with a bang!
  • [Verse 1 (0:25 - 0:49)]
    Down counts the game clock in an
    Overfilled stadium
    Hazy with gym chalk and a
    Room overrun

    Inside, they call my name
    It’s time to start the game
    Just take a deep breath and go
    Show why you came

    [Chorus 1 (0:52 - 1:16)]
    You’ll steal the spotlight
    So give it all you’ve got!
    Gear up for your fight
    And shred it like you’ve never fought

    I know you’ll make it
    Let’s show them who you are
    It’s time to overtake it
    And make a splash on the radar

    [Verse 2 (1:20 - 1:46)]
    The skaters fly right down the
    Sprawling winding curves
    Bright floodlights wash over my nerves

    I step up to the rail
    My chance to pave my trail
    I’m here to set myself straight
    And off we sail

    [Chorus 2 (1:50 - 2:14)]
    (Chorus)

    [Bridge (2:14 - 2:36)]
    Down, down, the timer ticks
    The ramp’s alive with fancy kicks
    Now, now, here starts the round
    They’ll ride the bend and hit the ground

    Back, forth, the judges shout
    The kids clock in and get kicked out
    But not you, you’ve got it now
    So get out there and burn it down!

    [Chorus 3 (2:38 - 3:01)]
    (Chorus)
  • Here we go again
    Didn't mean to let you in
    Guess the slamming door fell off its hinges
    Like an animal gone stray
    I fed you once and now you stay
    But that will be the last time that I ever help you

    Cause I don't need you
    I don't need you hanging off my shoulders digging down
    I don't need you now

    I take it all back
    Every piece of me in your control
    Like an 8-track
    Outdated and replaceable
    I'll find my own way from here
    Thank-you very much, thanks for nothing at all
    It's over, I built you up I'll let you fall

    Think I'm in the clear
    But I can't shake this fear
    Of feeling backed into the corner
    Thought I made it clear
    There's no place for you here
    I'm not sure how much simpler I can make this for you

    Cause I don't need you
    I don't need you hanging off my shoulders digging down
    I don't need you now

    I take it all back
    Every piece of me in your control
    Like an 8-track
    Outdated and replaceable
    I'll find my own way from here
    Thank-you very much, thanks for nothing at all
    It's over, I built you up I'll let you fall

    I'll let you fall
    And I don't need you now!

    I take it all back
    Every piece of me in your control
    Like an 8-track
    Outdated and replaceable
    I'll find my own way from here
    Thank-you very much, thanks for nothing at all
    It's over, I built you up I'll let you fall

    Broken record
    Spinnin' the same lines as before
    It's conjected
    But you're always asking me for more
    Your chances, have run out
    When it rains with you it fucking pours
    It's over, it's over, it's over!
  • They want me to stay silent
    Obedient, subservient
    Showing zero dissent
    Lest they get violent

    But I refuse to lie down
    I'll stand up and seize the crown

    Welcome to my own coup
    'Tis all I know how to do
    I'll take my board and fly
    I will skate until I die

    This is my coup d'etat
    My mighty hurrah
    Watch me aim for the sky
    As I skate to live, skate to die

    I am done being quiet
    I don't care if you get upset
    My mind is set
    To live and die with no regret

    I'll stand up and seize the crown
    We'll see who are the real clowns

    Welcome to my own coup
    'Tis all I know how to do
    I'll take my board and fly
    I will skate until I die

    This is my coup d'etat
    My mighty hurrah
    Watch me aim for the sky
    As I skate to live, skate to die

    this is my life
    And I'm gonna break free
    Take a knife
    Cut the chains that bind me
    Skate towards destiny
    Skate to live, skate to die
  • [Verse 1]
    You’ve gotten her invite,
    Sealed with a kiss goodbye.
    No time for family or friends,
    To her: "There is only you and I."

    If only you cared,
    Your duty is your demise,
    No matter how high you rise,
    The past catches up tonight.

    [Chorus]
    Hanging alone by the skulls at her door,
    She will call your name,
    Do not be afraid,
    You kill or you die.

    [Verse 2]
    Impending doom on your way,
    Do not fret the way things unfurl,
    Haven’t you heard?
    Death is a gentle, lovely girl.

    This was never your first dance,
    You know what you’ve done,
    You can never be free,
    Dancing to the sound of a gun.

    [Chorus]
    Hanging alone by the skulls of her door
    she will call your name
    Do not be afraid.
    you kill or you die

    Shooting along through her corridors
    she will whisper your name
    What was all of it for?
    Now you're knocking on death's door.

    [Bridge]
    You knew this was coming
    and in your deathbed, you will long again for the feeling,
    the thrills and the yearning.
    And even in when you’re six feet
    on your dirt-covered bed
    People will still question
    are you really dead?

    But you're still

    [Chorus]
    Hanging alone by the skulls of her door
    she has called your name
    Do not be afraid.
    you killed and you died

    Shooting along through her corridors
    she has whispered your name
    What was all of it for?
    Now you're knocking on death's door.

    knocking on death's door.
  • My love waiting
    A hangar that shelters her soul
    As she's fading
    Our window to keep our control

    Off of their flight
    The dissidents pass on their files
    Right in my sight
    To follow the cargo for miles

    Through the bright sky
    The cargo fleet soars to the sun
    I see her eyes
    Piercing and ready to run

    Darling, go now
    The runway is crawling with spies
    From their lookout
    Get to the plane and we'll



    Fly, dear!
    Let's chase the sunset!
    When you’ve got me here
    Oh, I’ll be your roulette!

    No more mistakes
    Altitude’s rising
    Lay back as we break right
    Through the horizon



    Now that we're safe
    The clouds coat the ground far below
    And on your face
    The sun casts a brilliant show

    Watch the world spin
    Under us as we speed by
    Where have you been
    Before I came here to



    Fly, dear!
    Let's chase the sunset!
    When you’ve got me here
    Oh, I’ll be your roulette!

    No more mistakes
    Altitude’s rising
    Lay back as we break right
    Through the horizon



    As we roll up behind them, the hanger goes still
    You stay here my darling, I’m going for the kill
    Stay on lookout and keep the engines on standby
    I’ll start running, get ready my darling to



    Fly, dear!
    Let's chase the sunset!
    When you’ve got me here
    Oh, I’ll be your roulette!

    No more mistakes
    Altitude’s rising
    Lay back as we break right
    Through the horizon
  • We dance a dance
    Do not be fooled
    You do it right
    There are no rules
    Lady Fortune’s wicked game
    Roll the dice and make your play

    Under a Dead Moon
    On a black night
    Under a Dead Moon
    And out of sight

    It’s a different kind
    Who seek to fly
    Those that do
    They do or die
    Born of fire destined to burn
    Break the tables before they turn

    Under a Dead Moon
    On a black night
    Under a Dead Moon
    And out of sight

    Troubled Times
    Get Your Kicks
    Lovers lie
    Take your licks
    Got to Win
    The Game is Fixed
    Deadly Smile
    You know the Tricks
    Don’t play it safe
    Chase the thrill
    And if you shoot
    You shoot to kill

    Under a Dead Moon
    On a black night
    Under a Dead Moon
    And out of sight

    Our time is up
    The story ends
    Know your foes
    Know your friends
    When danger stares you in the eyes
    There are no heroes only spies

    Under a Dead Moon
    On a black night
    Under a Dead Moon
    And out of sight
  • [Verse 1]
    You generate
    More heat than light
    A brewing storm
    A mood as black as night
    A vicious display
    Of violence and pain
    They will not repent
    They must not remain

    [Chorus]
    An eye for an eye
    Such deadly deceit
    An eye for an eye
    and revenge is sweet
    An eye for an eye
    Can't leave this behind
    But an eye for an eye
    Leaves the whole world blind

    [Verse 2]
    Finish the fight
    They started this war
    Now seal their fate
    To even the score
    The time has come
    Now draw your gun
    It's best served cold
    Burns hot like the sun

    [Chorus 2]
    An eye for an eye
    Such deadly deceit
    An eye for an eye
    and revenge is sweet
    An eye for an eye
    Can't leave this behind
    But an eye for an eye
    Leaves the whole world blind

    [Bridge]
    Put an end to this for me
    I'd be there if I could
    I know you will avenge me
    Finish this thing for good

    [Chorus 3]
    An eye for an eye
    Such deadly deceit
    An eye for an eye
    and revenge is sweet
    An eye for an eye
    Can't leave this behind
    But an eye for an eye
    Leaves the whole world blind

    Lacking all my grace

    The burnout is killer
    Fervent like a bullet
    Fired from within

    Look into the mirror
    My greyed out existence

    Fade away

    Sharper than a razor
    Slicing through my skin

    Fade away

    Hoist her there to the stake, Europe is lifted from your curse

    See Joan, heathen lunatic 

    Let the voices in her head speak their last before she burns


    Forsook by thy country 

    Speak, we’re listening

    France will, for its part

    Remember Joan of Arc


    (2:58)

    (Crowd of french voices)

    OUI! 

    Il n'y a pas plus sourd que celu i 

    Qui ne veut pas entendre

    Your own God speaks through me

    You are deaf to your God


    I fear not death, death fears Joan of Arc

    My story immortalized by history

    My bravery carried in each young girls heart

    Oh sing, my angels, I am listening

    Voir votre faux prophète brûler

    Que Dieu ait pitié de votre âme

    You were blind but now you see

    You followed a siren’s song


    Unto ashes, the knight Joan of Arc

    A freak to be forgot by history

    Little peasant girl, sing out your heart 

    On deaf ears, our god isn’t listening


  • A beautiful world I live in
    Happy just all of the time!
    People are friends, never lonely
    Such a wonderful place divine....
    Need a friend? you can be mine :-)


    Bitch I'm on lockdown, subway is broken
    Twitchin' and tokin', the junkies be smokin
    and Hookers turn tricks, to get their next fix
    Pressure cooker, a blitz, sister spits on his kicks

    Everything sucks and it's appealing to leave,
    Down on my luck, so fucked, I'm feeling bereaved
    and homeless dropping dead in the street
    It's bogus, so hopeless, no shopping, no bread to eat


    Every day is simply a blessing
    The birds sing, flowers in bloom,
    We live in a fantastic paradise
    Walk with me this afternoon
    And sing with me, a happy tune


    Can't fall asleep; sounds of gunshots ring out
    Man calls out in need, something popping about
    some deal that went downtown, around a scoundrel on rebound
    tires squeal from the showdown, some clown on a meltdown

    Gotta abandon this shithole, I'm quitting this home
    I'm a man who's crashlanding, it's splitting my soul
    I need to meet a sweet scene, see, you feel what I mean,
    complete retreat to be free to thee unbelievable dream


    Who's that coming - well here's a new neighbor!
    Welcome friend, to our wonderful home!

    I've grown, roamed alone on this road to be shown
    I'll atone and disown the old abode that I've known

    Now we're here and it's clear there's no fear, and we cheer
    Survival, arrival , a rightful revival!
    Appreciate and embrace, the grace of this place
    And it's time
    to welcome you home!

    BUZZ
    According to my navi-computer...

    WOODY
    SHUT UP! JUST SHUT UP, you idiot!

    BUZZ
    Sheriff, this is no time to panic...

    WOODY
    This is the PERFECT time to PANIC! and I'll tell you why, spaceman...



    Chorus

    WOODY
    We're outside a car, and Andy is gone,
    And we're lost and it's all your fault.

    BUZZ
    Well if you hadn't pushed me outside,
    I wouldn't have to call Star Command from the asphalt.



    Verse

    WOODY
    Well, if we could get anything through that thick helmet of yours
    And into your thick skull, we wouldn't even be here!

    BUZZ
    What you don't seem to understand sheriff,
    Is that the universe needs me!



    Chorus

    WOODY
    If you hadn't shown up in your stupid spaceship
    And taken everything that was mine.

    BUZZ
    Well you don't know what importance really is.
    The universe is in trouble, and nothing is fine.



    Verse

    BUZZ
    I don't take well to attempted murder, sheriff man
    And neither does Star Command!

    WOODY
    I didn't mean to push you out of the window.
    Trust me, you falling out had the opposite effect.

    ...because i'm obviously stuck here with you now.



    Segue/Dialogue

    BUZZ
    Woody, poised at the edge of the galaxy,
    Emperor Zurg has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet!
    I alone have information that reveals his weapon's only weakness.
    And you, my friend, are responsible for delaying my rendezvous with Star Command!

    WOODY
    Your rendezvous with Star Command??
    YOU... ARE... A... TOY!!!
    You aren't the real Buzz Lightyear!

    BUZZ
    The sheriff's lost his touch or his head.
    He's a sad strange little man,
    And to pity him, is all I can.

    WOODY
    Is this seriously happening to me right now?!



    Chorus

    WOODY
    We're outside a car, and Andy is gone,

    BUZZ
    If you handn't pushed me outside,
    I wouldn't have to call Star Command from the asphalt.



    Verse

    WOODY
    Well if you accepted you were a toy,
    WE WOULDN'T BE LOST!

    TOGETHER
    Emperor Zurg has been building a weapon/ How can you not understand simple explanations
    And it's only me who can reduce him to null/ You're just a toy get it through your thick skull



    Chorus

    WOODY
    We're outside a car, and Andy is gone
    And we're lost and it's all your fault.

    BUZZ
    Well, being stuck out here isn't my favorite thing either.
    The world needs saving, Buzz Lightyear's on it, fear not!

    WOODY
    Seriously, if I hear another word from this guy!

  • This isn't how I thought it'd start
    When you first came and took my heart
    But I found you as if by chance
    We'll make it work through circumstance

    I had to go so far away
    But I'll be back again some day
    Once this speed bump has been and gone
    Then you and I can have some fun


    But for now, I lie in wait
    Count the days, saved the date
    Until I'm with who I fell for
    Before... (Before...)

    Looking up to the sky
    See the stars tell me why
    In the shapes I see you
    Looking at the same view
    Dancing to the same tune
    Singing to the same moon
    As you...

    I think of you from time to time
    Just can't get you from my mind
    Don't want it any another way
    If this is love I couldn't say

    Absence makes the heart grow stronger
    Found this out as I wait longer
    Tomorrow is just one day more
    Until I see you at my door

    But for now, I lie in wait
    Count the days, saved the date
    Until I'm with who I fell for
    Before... (Before...)

    Looking up to the sky
    See the stars tell me why
    In the shapes I see you
    Looking at the same view
    Dancing to the same tune
    Singing to the same moon
    As you...
  • If I could cry, I'd cry out to the mountains
    If I could run, I'd run into the hills
    If I could fly, I'd fly so far away from this place
    Yet here I am, still

    I can see, somewhere in the future
    Another man, another life that I could live
    And I can see, somewhere in the path that I must take
    Another man, with so much more to give

    I know, there's something deep within me
    It's pulling me and pushing me and tearing me apart
    I know, there's more to life than waiting for tomorrow,
    And today I'm going to start...

    Anywhere on Earth
    Any place in time
    Any who what why how or when
    I know that you'll be mine

    What if I just, jump in? I think I can do it!
    I know you can! Come on, let's go!

    Yes I can hold, the world by the tail

    Do worlds have tails?
    It's a phrase!

    Uh oh...

    This time I know, I'll stay on track to find what I believe in

    My(Your) star is going to rise

    What if I asked you to come with me?

    I don't know (oh) how I could ever not say yes!

    So here we are, heading to a place we can discover

    Anywhere on Earth
    Any place in time
    Any who what why how or when
    I know that you'll be mine

  • M: We left the hills for the plains not a moment too soon.
    R: We were gone through all of April, May, and most of June.
    M: Every new friend that we made was a life that we saved.
    B: We were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.

    R: On the road we caught a glimpse of a hot air balloon.
    M: We watched it fade into clouds on its way to the moon.
    R: So we stopped at a shop to buy some paper and string.
    B: There was a time when a dime could buy you lots of things.

    If you have never even tried.

    M: Fire for heat, a bit to eat, maybe a book to read.
    R: We carefully constructed throughout the day and night.

    M: We don't blink, we don't sleep, we don't look before we leap.

  • [Intro]
    M: I been dreaming of a Disney duet
    where I feel sleep and with no regret
    the tint had spilled and my hand had sink
    under the tender love of a loving bitch. (Ehem witch)

    F: I’ve been dreaming of a Disney duet
    where I am not awoken by a forced love
    that I can handle without fear of touch
    quite afar from the tree where the poison grows

    M: So everything afar and then nothing near?
    F: If those are the rules this may work my dear.

    F: But, why do we always sing?
    M: I don’t know
    F: Why do we always sing a montage?
    M: Is not like this is menial work
    F: This is not menial work right?

    [Chorus]
    FM: I’ve been dreaming without sweet regret
    of finding true love beyond the plains that run
    and now I found myself singing all the time
    now we can’t stop, no we can’t stop

    F: You have to show me the world.
    M: High expectations there.
    F: Provide me rainbows and gold...
    M: Girl, you’re a princess or I’m drunk?
    F: Can you at least make some weird-ass-long-words?

    but I heard you can find it by singing.
    M: I just want some fun before my time is due
    and I heard that you can conquer girls by singing.
    M: Why sing alone, when you can have a pretty-handsome-partner?
    F: I been singing about a true found love
    but love potions are is just chemistry
    I prefer to dreams big things I can be, all I wish to be,
    that’s what I have been finding.
    M: Girl, one thing I know for a fact is true
    when we share our dreams
    it is your singing that enthralls me!

  • Intro:

    Well well well! What do we have here?
    Princess: None of your business, that's what.
    Makemnoit: See, that's where you're wrong, princess. An important young woman such as yourself, shouldn't be wandering these woods alone. Someone needs to keep an eye on you.
    Princess: I don't like the sound of that at all. Are you threatening me?
    Makemnoit: Heavens no! I can't believe you don't recognize me. After all, we're family.
    Princess: *laughs*
    Makemnoit: What's so funny?
    Princess; Well, I mean, there's no way we're related. Everyone in our family has a tiny nose. Your nose looks like a big pickle.
    Makemnoit: You know what? That's it. It's time somebody taught you and this whole family a lesson.

    Makemnoit:

    Some people think I’m ugly, hate the company I keep
    But ever since the day I was born, I was a black sheep
    Brother was the favorite, I never had a thing
    Left to rot in squalor while your father is the king
    And if there’s nothing sacred in this world for me to love,
    I’ll take some little comfort that I’m not the only one

    I knew what I must do when I first saw you in the lake
    I must dry up all the rivers, and make it so it never rains
    Only then would somebody like you feel my pain
    I’m sorry but there’s just no other way

    Dry!

    (Water is now drained from the lake)

    Princess:

    I never needed those things promised me from birth
    Kingdom or servants or the glory or the curse
    I don’t know what happened between my father and yourself
    I wish there were something I could do to help

    Then you’ve become the worst thing a man can be,
    I don’t know what they did to you, but you’ve done worse to me


    What could lead a man down such a wicked path?
    what did I do to you to invoke your wrath?
    Think before you punish me for things I didn’t do.
    Why am I to take the fall for what they did to you?

    [Princess: It's not too late to change how people see you! Put the water back and I'll do whatever I can to help you! Please!]

    Makemnoit

    It’s too late, It’s too late
    I’m sorry but there’s just no other way
    It’s too late, It’s too late
    My darling there is just no other way… to make them feel my pain


    Makemnoit:
    (The golden child)
    My brother was the golden child who could do no wrong
    (They made a song)
    They praised him in the newspapers and worshiped him in song
    (No one ever sees)
    But there’s another side of him that no one ever sees
    (Would you Believe?)
    And I am not the kind of man that people would believe

    Princess:
    If you lift the curse on me I’ll speak on your behalf
    But if you go much further I fear there’s no going back…


    Is it too late? Is it too late?
    I wish that we could find another way
    Is it too late? Is it too late?
    I wish that there was any other way…

    both:
    It’s too late, It’s too late
    Everyone agrees it’s such a shame
    It’s too late, It’s too late
    I wish that there was any other way… but things will never change.

    Makemnoit: I'm sorry. I had no other choice.


    Princess: hey come back here! Hey! Where are you going? Come back here! I'm stuck! Hey! Hey! Hey...

    Remember the meaning of friendship
    The magic we find in true love

    The good times we had way back then
    Guess what? We're gonna do it again

    It's time for a live action remake
    It's new! But it's mostly the same

    A once in a lifetime experience
    I mean, you know, more or less

    It's got all the scenes that you love
    And even a few that they changed just because
    To milk your nostalgia for times way back when

    (Footsteps and paper ruffling)

    Sigh…

    Inky? What's wrong?

    She….she doesn't like me?

    What...what do you mean?


    (Verse 1)

    The lady that you drew for me

    To be my friend and fill me with glee

    She walked away onto another page

    Well why on earth would she do this

    I drew her so she'd cause you bliss

    To be your friend and end your lonely age. 


    (Verse 2)

    You don't understand, my creator friend

    When you drew her face to, my loneliness, end

    And you drew her long beautiful flowing hair

    Oh my God, did you fall in love

    It wasn't falling, it was more like a shove

    And she shoved into a world of growing despair


    (Spoken interlude)

    Well, uh...um...I can draw a new-

    Don't even!

    Woah!

    Ah, jeez, I'm sorry. 

    It's...fine, but what CAN I do for you?


    (Verse 3)

    You cannot just stay here on the black page

    Why shouldn't I? It represents my personal cage

    Well this isn't the little Inky boy I know

    Well, then what's he like? He's a jolly li'l fellow

    Prancing through the hills of black, basking in the sun of yellow

    And I'd hate to see my buddy get consumed by woe


    (Verse 4)

    I just can't get over her, her little sticky arms

    Her beady little eyes, her quirky little charms

    Tell me, Inky, what happened to make you blue?

    Well I told her I loved her with all my heart

    But she said that she didn't and away she depart-

    -ed. Please tell your creator what he can do for you.


    (Spoken Interlude)

    I just want some time alone. Time to think about how to get her back

    Would that make you happy?

    Just place this paper somewhere quiet

    (Paper ruffling)

    Is this quiet? In the guest room?

    Yeah. A nice quiet place to think. Thank you.

    Anytime.

    No concept of hills; it's flat

  • A cover of "Your Song" by u/__Zenon, u/porella and u/pfeifits from round 177


    Your scars, I miss them
    Life without you just seems so different
    I needed to go
    Somewhere I couldn't call you home

    Yeah it hurts I haven't seen you in so long
    And it kills me that anxiety got in the way
    Maybe I was overdoing
    Saying you'll get through it
    Trying to reassure
    But you heard the words all wrong

    The first night
    You cut, you cried
    I knew you needed patience and I tried
    Still I pushed you
    To be better
    How could I have known you weren't ready for that depth yet?

    And it hurts I haven't seen you in so long
    And it kills me that anxiety got in the way
    Maybe I was overdoing
    Saying you'll get through it
    Trying to reassure
    But you heard the words all wrong
    You heard the words all wrong

    Scared
    Of what it might mean
    When you I thought you weren't good enough for me
    Your dam burst
    So did mine
    We were stressed out, messed up people exchanging lives

    It's unfair that life brought us together
    You drowned in your demons while I got to fight off mine
    It's unfair that you never got to get better
    Now that you're gone, I can't help but feel that I'm the reason why

    You heard the words all wrong
  • Inspired by American Gods from GOB 136 (http://gameofbands.com/song/136)


    Verse 1

    It began with a maid and beacon
    Standing tall on a faraway shore
    The people they came from all over
    Bringing with them their legends and lore

    Now the altars are no longer burning
    Swept away with the change of the tide
    So bow down, there are new gods in town
    Competing for fresh hearts and minds

    Chorus

    Stare at your American altar
    And sit back, sacrificing your years
    Your new gods will always be hungry
    For your clicks and your likes and your shares

    Verse 2

    Then one day along comes a shadow
    And a man with a plan in the works
    The old gods will not be forgotten
    Though their influence fades from the world

    So they gather from corners abandoned
    Where the last of the old ways still hold
    Preparing for one final battle
    Over which way the future unfolds

    Chorus

    VERSE 1
    He walks the eternal path.
    Blood stains from head to toe.
    He will unleash his wrath.
    No mercy for his foes.

    His blade thirsts for blood.
    Black smoke blots out the sun.
    Rising up like a flood.
    He seeks the nameless one.

    VERSE 2
    No rest. He does not tire.
    No pain. He does not bleed.
    His fury fuels his fire.
    Revenge is all he needs.

    He fights through their front lines.
    Cuts down the evil hordes.
    Destroys unholy shrines.
    He hunts for the dark lord.

    CHORUS
    The prophecy foretold
    Under shattered skies,
    and evil's stranglehold.
    A hero will rise.

    VERSE 3
    Ancient darkness spawned.
    And had the world subdued.
    His home and family gone.
    They thought they killed him too.

    Inside a shallow grave.
    He was reborn to kill.
    The world will soon be saved.
    By all the blood he spills.

    VERSE 4
    Now on the battlefield.
    Enemies lie ahead.
    No fear. He will not yield.
    They are already dead.

    And as they move to flank.
    They fall into his trap.
    Slaughters them rank by rank.
    Proceeds to parts unmapped.

    CHORUS 2
    The prophecy foretold
    Under shattered skies,
    and evil's stranglehold.
    A hero will rise.

    BRIDGE (SPOKEN)
    "As he approaches the crimson mountain a shadowy figure appears before him upon the path."

    CHORUS 3
    The prophecy foretold
    Under shattered skies,
    and evil's stranglehold.
    A hero will rise.

    Funny this Phantom feeling
    I can’t escape
    Trying to come clean
    Sins washed off me
    Can this be my fate?
    Stuck in this nameless place
    Feeling all alone
    stuck in the unknown

    am i being cleansed
    is this punishment
    I can’t feel a thing
    I feel everything

    Please just let me in
    its so cold out here
    Please just let me in
    I know i have sinned

    open up the gate
    I swear i won’t be a mistake
    please just let me
    in your heaven
    I just want be
    Want to be with you
    Bathed in pure light
    Place of Paradise

    I am ready now
    let me ascend
    This little prayer
    That I won’t descend

    Eternal defeat
    I’m going down
    No prayer now
    Headed straight for flame
    that smokey beast
    No hope now
    Devil beside me


    Is this all a dream?
    I hear voices telling me
    follow the light

    this was all a dream
    no more me
    going past the line
    till the end of time
    saying my last goodbye
  • Based on Round 172 Song Pompeii http://new.gameofbands.com/#/song/1414

    From the distance came a roaring
    And a force that shook the ground
    Dark skies raining earth and fire
    Like Vulcan’s hammer coming down

    Only stones and bones remaining
    And a story of the past
    In the shadow of the mountain
    Buried deep beneath the ash

    And the tales they told
    Of Atlantis old
    No longer seemed so odd
    As they watched the flames
    Coming down like waves

    A storm to drown them all
    A storm to drown them all

    Lost to fire but not to time
    Until the story fades
    What we unearth we give rebirth
    The ghosts of old Pompeii

    Lost to fire but not to time
    Until the story fades
    What we unearth we give rebirth
    The ghosts of old Pompeii

    From the ships they saw the burning
    And the dark cloud drawing near
    Heard the screams of people fleeing
    In the chaos and the fear

    And they turned to the commander
    Contemplating safe retreat
    But the people needed rescue
    So he ordered forth the fleet

    And the tales they told
    Of Atlantis old
    No longer seemed so odd
    As they watched the flames
    Coming down like waves

    A storm to drown them all
    A storm to drown them all

    Lost to fire but not to time
    Until the story fades
    What we unearth we give rebirth
    The ghosts of old Pompeii

    Only stones and bones remaining
    And the words scratched into wax
    Of the city and the mountain
    And the past beneath the ash

    Lost to fire but not to time
    Until the story fades
    What we unearth we give rebirth
    The ghosts of old Pompeii

    Lost to fire but not to time
    Until the story fades
    What we unearth we give rebirth
    The ghosts of old Pompeii

    Lost to fire but not to time
    Until the story fades
    What we unearth we give rebirth

    Saw you approaching
    through my steely eyes
    reflexes not sharp
    My heart's still hardened
    It’s beating, beaten through

    Curve ball
    Rainfall
    Made me freeze in my tracks
    Hard man
    Cannot stand the attack
    Fade to black

    The Iron X

    Could I maybe take you
    Prevent me breaking down
    Axe’s blade
    An attack well laid
    Metallic taste in my throat

    Lead shank
    Loud clank
    Both of us were heartless
    Brain Scan
    Sparks began welding black
    Nonmoving parts

    Cold crank
    Memory banks
    Carbon fiber hardness
    Cold hands
    transplanting power from
    part to part

    Can we just jumpstart
    out of this moment
    electrically unnerving
    it's not about the scars
    My sacrifice fated
    Now I'm consecrated

    You’re 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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Will these emotions ever, fall away

    CHORUS
    Can I ever become whole again, oh please
    Or am I broken forevermore
    Can I be consoled from these tortured memories
    I lay shivering on the floor

    Will I be able to wake tomorrow
    And bear this weight that's on my soul
    An empty table, bare room of sorrow
    My careless fate, thrown down a hole

    Please take a seat
    This won’t be long
    The math’s concrete
    We’re never wrong

    It’s just a prick
    Some scary sounds
    We’ll do this quick
    You’ll come around

    You’ve got our backs
    We’re in your debt
    Sit back, relax

    Nothing is greater

    So relax
    Picture yourself outside

    Our tracks
    It’s important that you get all
    The facts
    Know where you’re going

    Now you’re allowed
    To read your genes

    Who you will be

    The foods you’ll try

    The way you’ll die

    Lie down
    Get yourself ready to
    Find out
    Keep yourself steady
    With no doubt
    Unlock who you’ll be
    Wrapped around
    Twists in your genes

    It’s all there
    It’s important that you are well
    Aware
    Just how much you’ll help yourself
    Prepare
    We thank you for all that you
    Have shared
    It keeps ourselves going

    And we’ll find
    All the ways you’ll fall
    Out of line
    Encoded deep and all
    Entwined
    Already knowing
    The right time
    When to start going

    You’re not the only thanks

  • (Verse 1)
    Back in 2020
    I had real dreams
    Wasn't as empty, empty
    As I turned out to be

    (Verse 2)
    Spent every single minute
    Pen pressing on paper
    Forcing the words to come out
    "Songwriting's my passion"

    (Pre-Chorus)
    And I truly truly was just
    A hopeless young dreamer
    Searching for whatever could make it big

    (Chorus x2)
    Adults seemed so cold
    But now I'm so old
    And I've become bitter
    Like I said I never would

    (on top of the rif)
    15 years now
    I've spent it all
    Just trying to find
    All my lost hope
    I had such passion
    I was so young
    But dreams they disappear
    Like ice cubes in the sun

    (Verse 3)
    In 2025
    Attempted suicide
    It wasn't easy easy
    Somehow I'm still alive

    (Verse 4)
    Was hoping for relief
    I didn't want to be saved
    Reality was disappointing
    And I was too afraid

    (Pre-Chorus)
    And I truly truly was just
    Hopeless and desolate
    Tired of succumbing to fate

    (Chorus x2)
    Adults seemed so cold
    But now I'm so old
    And I've become bitter
    Like I said I never would

    (Outro)
    In 2030 I lost the one I loved
    Almost a 10 year anniversary
    of learning life's costs
    Don't think I'll be around when 2040 comes
    I think the year might be cursed and
    I won't stick around x3

  • LIVING ON THE MOON
    -------------------VERSE
    This faraway outpost
    won't be back to Earth soon
    Near the south lunar pole
    it's life on the moon

    I have to wash the dust
    every day from my suit
    My bones they feel weak
    it's life on the moon

    Mare Nubium
    the Cloudy Lagoon
    Earth in Orange Eclipse
    it's life on the moon

    CHORUS
    Living on the Moon
    Makes you long for the earth
    Will I ever get back
    to the place of my Birth
    Living on the Moon
    Is not what it seems
    Meteor alarms
    make you wake from your dreams

    Living on the Moon
    you wait for supplies
    You can only leave early
    if one of us dies
    Living on the Moon
    is not for the weak
    I miss having weather
    today's outlook is bleak

    VERSE
    We make buildings
    from regolith bricks
    six times high, hump the dunes
    it's life on the moon

    beware of radiation,
    solar flares
    the greenhouse, flowers in bloom
    escape from life on the moon

    South of Tycho
    ice mining a tomb
    For Tritium Reactors
    it's life on the moon

    CHORUS
    Living on the Moon
    Makes me long for my home
    Am I forever doomed
    to life in a dome
    Living on the Moon
    Is not really great
    Why did I volunteer -
    Im here to populate ?

    Living on the Moon
    Time often stands still
    You can only leave early if
    you somehow get killed
    Living on the Moon
    Not for the faint of heart
    I feel really stupid
    I thought I was smart

    Living on the Moon
    Makes you long for the earth
    Will I ever get back
    to the place of my Birth
    Living on the Moon
    you wait for supplies
    You can only leave early
    if one of us dies

    Living on the Moon
    is not for the weak
    I miss having weather
    today's outlook is bleak
    Living on the Moon
    makes you want to just scream
    Meteor alarms
    make you wake from your dreams
  • Promises of Tomorrow
    ====================
    Lyrics: mwthecool
    Vocals: neoncrisis
    Music: agitat0r



    When the future seems dark, I focus on tomorrow.
    Taking it one step at a time seems to help me with my sorrow.
    The stress of the day, the work that isn’t done, how can anybody stand it

    In my head the flying cars take me away
    and I can teleport off to a nice beach to stay
    My robo-butler can clean off the grease stains of yesterday

    (Chorus)
    I hope I make it to the year 2030.
    Life goes slow, but I’m always in a hurry.
    I can’t wait, I can’t stay, I wanna go today.

    Maybe if I make it to the year 2030
    My big troubles will all become small and blurry.
    The rear view mirror will push them all away



    I just need to make it through the next 10 years
    Why does every day have to bring a new fear?
    I don’t want to grow old, I don’t want to die young.

    If I can fly, I’ll spread my wings and soar.
    My metal angel suit, will carry me far from this dark floor
    I’m stuck singing the blues and my life could use a strong encore.

    [Chorus]

    What if the future isn’t what was promised
    What if this is all
    What if I’ve already flown too close to the sun
    And I just haven’t noticed my fall

    No, I need to stay strong. I need to carry on.

    (Chorus)
    I need to make it to the year 2030
    Life goes slow, but my heart is in a hurry
    I can’t wait, I can’t stay, I wanna go today.

    Maybe if I make it to the year 2030
    My big troubles will all become small and blurry.
    The rear view mirror will push them all away
  • I don't see a way out
    We don't solve our one problems
    All I'll have is the tension
    Dealing with the fallout

    This is the end of all of us
    If we fail at everything
    Maybe it's just how
    We never did anything

    We'll do nothing at all

    We'll do nothing at all
  • Lyrics by /u/davyjoetee

    Breathe in the air,
    Feed on the daylight,
    Feel the way you’re pulled to the earth,
    Oh won’t you stay,
    Hero and saviour,
    Take away, those that can hurt
    Me

    I can be single,
    I can be freak
    Live in the water,
    Give to the weak
    I can be lazarus
    I can be dead
    Stand like a statue
    Sleep in your bed
    I can be goldmine
    Spilling out trouble
    Sandbags and gas masks
    For children of all ages
    I can be benzos
    Tripping on triple drops
    Stopping the dribble with
    Six bibs and a double stop
    I can be cherry pie
    Queen of the ballroom fair
    Maiden of beautyville
    Wife to the handsome, the rich, the gods

    Breathe in the air,
    Feed on the daylight,
    Feel the way you’re pulled to the earth,
    Oh won’t you stay,
    Hero and saviour,
    Take away, those that can hurt
    Me

    I can be Lincoln
    I can be chained
    Chinking like a long line of links
    In a rusty chain
    Changed for the better
    Or at least better than Cheney
    Chiming the chim chiminey
    Chim chim cheree
    Poppin’ like Mary,
    Mother of god
    When she saw it all fall
    Into the hands of an artist
    I can be marble, black hearted
    Swirling and curling at the core
    Crux and the crucifix
    I can be medicine,
    Skin bone and needle
    A magical renaissance
    An out-of-this-world-once-in-a-lifetime-feeling


    What is it the body wants,
    Is it to get to the end of an endless climb?
    What is it the body wants,
    Is it to live for all time?
  • Verse 1
    The ground breaks out below
    And the energy of the cyberstream
    Begins to flow
    As the children run ‘round
    On the ground
    As cars and trucks are stopped in total gridlock

    And we beg for bridges to be built
    Fallen into disrepair
    and Nothing is fair
    Our chance to fix this shit was ten years ago

    ---------
    Chorus
    Start stream, fall to your knees, beg and plead
    For another donation to your surgery
    There’s no path up in this race to death
    So I’ll pass my time here and waste, I guess
    ---------

    Verse 2
    The sky breaks out above
    A congested cyberspace in the cloud
    Begins to flood
    As the messages and videos play out
    And the sound
    Of another snuffed life is ignored

    And we beg for crops to be grown
    Too much ozone in the air
    Nothing is fair
    And in ten years time, they’ll wish we fixed our shit by now

    -----------------------------
    Chorus 2
    Start stream, fall to your knees, beg and plead
    For another donation to your surgery
    There’s no path up in this race to death
    So I’ll pass my time here and waste, I guess

    [chorus]
    i am alone
    and i'm floating around in space
    i have nowhere to go
    i've been floating around for days

    [verse 1]
    i lost contact a while ago
    i was sent out to search for a better home
    a better place for my makers to reside
    i just don't know if they're still alive

    [pre-chorus]
    i don't have a clock so i don't have a sense of time
    i can't ever stop so i don't have a chance to die

    [chorus]
    i am alone
    and i'm floating around in space
    i have nowhere to go
    i've been floating around for days

    [verse 2]
    so many suns
    and so many moons had passed
    when i found a place
    where humans could last

    [pre-chorus]
    have my makers forgotten or have they replaced me
    am i an experiment that became space debris

  • [Verse]

    When you pull the leash, I start to choke
    When I breathe, you lash out unprovoked
    When it starts, I don’t know how to cope
    When it starts, you don’t know how to stop.

    Is that what's been awaiting down the road
    Was it all the same decades ago
    Did they force their judgement down your throat
    Did you find a way to heal the hurt

    [Pre-Chorus]

    Do you have to scare me with inevitable crises?
    Do you have to punish me for stepping out of line?
    Do I have to justify your selfish sacrifices?
    Tell me, can you be around me every day

    [Chorus]

    and not
    Blame me for every error since creation
    Shame me, and call it miscommunication

    [Verse]

    You pretend to speak for all the kids
    Then you go and whip me til I bleed
    There must be something behind your ribs
    But I start to choke when you pull the leash

    [Pre-Chorus]

    Do we really need dark sarcasm in the classroom?
    Do you have to punish me for stepping out of line?
    Do I have to justify your selfish sacrifices?
    Tell me, can you be around me every day

    [Chorus]

    and not
    Blame me for every error since creation
    Shame me, and call it miscommunication
    Chain me with your unhealthy expectations
    Maim me by thinly veiled accusations

    [Bridge]

    When I get old
    I’m gonna do that too
    Make sure they hurt
    Take them by the hand and

    [Chorus]

    Chain them with my unhealthy expectations
    Maim them by thinly veiled accusations
    Shame them, and call it miscommunication
    Blame them for every error since creation
  • Around, around...

    ...It wasn’t long ‘fore a breakthrough
    Wasn’t long ‘fore the helmet had its debut
    All the scientists were clambering and stammering
    Their thoughts shown on the screen, the machine, it was enamoring

    ...The demo slammed, was a huge hit
    I’d worked for months and put up with all their bullshit
    But my mentor went alone and popped the champagne
    I got left at home, thought I was too new to the game

    They said they wanted it renowned
    Around, around, they’ll come around
    They’ve kept me locked up underground
    Around, around, they’ll come around

    ...Felt something wrong, found the program
    My name was gone, the operation was a whole scam
    My rent was choking out on the curbside
    While they all ate cake, one slice less to divide

    ...I lost my cool, went to the lab
    Straight to the console and hooked up the tabs
    Recorded everything that ran inside my mind
    Gripped the leather tensely as the pixels combined

    They went and showed off what I’d found
    Around, around, they’ll come around
    They brushed me off without a sound
    Around, around, they’ll come around!

    Took off with the flash drive
    Made sure my secret hand was in the archive
    Five minutes of just ranting and shouting
    From my mouth to yours while the hatred is spouting

    And I’ve got you where I want!
    You’ve never bothered to turn the damn thing on
    Now I’ve got some evidence, straight from my head
    Pouring through the business board and rushing straight ahead

    They said they’d come around
    Just wait ‘till this gets out—!

    They said they’d come around, now...
    But when that tape is found

    It seems you’ve erased my name
    Well two can play at that game
    Let’s see you come from this unscathed

    I’ve lost it all and so will you
    It’s not my fault you stretched the truth
    Just using what I have!

    They said they'd come around...
  • (Verse One)
    Another day, another lonely day
    Goin' on without you in my arms
    Sittin' 'round, layin' in my room
    Where I can't cause anymore harm
    No one to hug except myself
    Feeling alone in my tomb
    Nothing to see, nowhere to go
    Here inside a padded room

    (Chorus)
    Please go on without me (Do you care about me)
    Please don't miss me so (After what I did)
    I'll be with you shortly (You don't even miss me)
    I miss you too, you know (I shouldn't even kid)

    (Verse 2)
    I‘d love to see, love to see you soon,
    I can’t even really picture your face,
    All of your scars they fade away,
    and your grudges be laid to waste,
    After a hundred sleepless nights,
    You left your stay in ICU,
    I’m filled with glee, and hopeful sights,
    As you save me from my Broadmoor too.

    (Chorus)
    I'll kiss and hug your bruises (Please don't leave me, darling)
    You'll remove restraints (sorry for what I did)
    And if you feel forgiving (I can feel it coming)
    We'll kiss and make up before we hit the gates (Why do I even kid)

    (Bridge)
    My stay will be extended
    They say I'm not getting better
    So I guess I'll be staying
    Wrapped in my hugging sweater

    I better not be extended
    I promise I'm getting better
    There's no way I'll be staying
    Wrapped up in this sweater

    My stay is extended
    Who says I'm not getting better
    They all think that I'll be staying, but
    I figured out how to get out of my sweater!

    (Chorus)
    Please wait for me, baby (I beg of you, wait)
    We can start anew (I promise I can change)
    One thing is for certain (tell me you still care)
    I will always love you (As my sanity wanes)
  • VOLUNTARILY SOLITARILY CONFINED
    -------------------
    You know the saying?
    that all good things come to an end
    and now I sit here all alone

    The hopelessness,
    it eats away
    why am i lonely alone?

    BRIDGE
    No one to fill the space
    Even I have left this place!

    CHORUS
    See the world like a fisheye lens
    I'm friendly with no friends
    My invites were all declined
    Voluntarily solitarily confined
    Maybe I should be by myself
    It's not working out well for my health
    Never sentenced, but doing time
    Voluntarily solitarily confined

    VERSE
    Maybe I'm not really alone,
    ironically
    laughing sardonically

    Can something fill this gap
    Can I make it with my soul intact
    But what do I do, what do i know?

    BRIDGE
    I thought I always had to be right
    It's just become another sleepless night

    CHORUS
    They say that the strongest one in the world
    Is somebody who is undeterred
    But i find myself long resigned
    Voluntarily solitarily confined
    Why does every day always seem the same
    they all run into a sad hard day
    The only real cells are in my brain and mind
    Voluntarily solitarily confined!

  • From what I saw, she came through the record store door
    Carrying her purse as she planned
    She looked around and threw her bag on the floor
    It spilled apart from her hands

    I just found myself staring
    It’s been a few days since I’ve seen someone
    Let alone be so daring
    To go on the streets as this problem runs

    She reaches down to the metal that spilled on the ground
    Horseshoes scattered ‘round her feet
    I watched from my bed as she spread them around
    And picked one up off the street

    I know that these times can get to you
    But I didn’t think this
    I’ve been locked up in my room
    While everything else is lawless

    And how those discs shine as they fly
    Breaking the restaurant windows
    Her face cramps with her agonized cries
    I guess we’ve all been locked up for most of our lives

    The show window glass shines bright on the road
    A mosaic of all that we feel
    Knowing full well that we’re all stuck up in these holes
    Alone amidst the unreal
  • whistle when your with me
    wistful without
    wish you were with me
    as i look all around
    found your face once again
    cant seem to hide or pretend
    i might still need a friend

    be true, be true to me
    Oh still asking why
    i wonder if we could ever fly,
    we could ever fly

    look through the window carefully
    black sheep moving with the herd
    ask yourself what you’re seeing
    are you immobilized by the world

    Stuck in this box
    Breakout don’t stop
    Build a bigger clock
    Its just a larger lock
    Restock the antidote
    Sour note
    but still afloat

    With this lockjaw government saying bite down
    Naw I'm above this shit
    Hm its bright out now

    Chasing zephyr for that fresh air
    going since I started
    I could use a breathe yeah
    Rested and refreshed bet
    I don’t want to discuss it

    Your mind must remain open
    One with reality
    we’re still hoping’
    Outrunning abysmal banalities
    Divided upon applying the quotient

    With this lockjaw government saying bite down
    Stay indoors
    Naw I'm above this shit
    hope you don't have to protect whats yours
    Hm its bright out now

    nobody lookin for a fight right now
    but when the lights go down
    the goons come out
    are you lookin around in the streets right now?
    what are they lookin for guard on patrol

    stay indoors

    Verse 1

    Lights out
    Not another soul for miles
    Between the water and the trees
    Under [these] endless, open skies

    Out here in my seclusion
    No noise, no light pollution
    Staring out at the stars
    So far but never closer
    (never closer, no)
    Than I’ve been right now

    Chorus

    So here I am stargazing
    Eyes raised to the amazing
    Cool wind and starlight gleaming
    A deeper dream than [I’ve been] dreaming
    (And yeah I am stargazing)

    Verse 2

    Back home
    I remember pale white dots
    Blending with the city lights
    Nothing like this, barely bright

    Out here in isolation
    Alone among creation
    Watching constellations drift
    So far but so much closer
    Than I have ever been

    The explorer’s guiding light
    The canvas where we paint our myths
    A new frontier still unexplored

  • Verse
    Repetition got me thinking
    It doesn't matter what you say
    Cause words will lose their meaning
    When you use them every day
    You want so bad to fix me
    I don't think that I'm okay
    I've been avoiding bridges
    So I don't fly away

    Chorus
    I'm out here all alone
    It's like you're screaming at the moon
    I've got a hole inside my soul
    That you cant fill with "I love yous"

    Verse
    Repetition got me thinking
    It's the same shit different day
    Cause moments lose their feeling
    But you live them anyway
    If I go where this road is leading
    There might be hell to pay
    I've been avoiding bridges
    So I don't fly away
  • I can't really sleep tonight, so I'm on my roof
    and you're on my mind (you're on my mind)
    I'm up here pretending you're here
    watching the clouds as I disappear
    I can't see the moon at the moment
    but I'm sure she's looking down at me in disappointment

    your skin tastes like kiwis
    left out in the sun

    your memories smudged
    like the writing on my palm
    I wish that calm could stay
    I wish I didn't need to think
    but

    its 2 am and I'm still awake
    the sheets won't drag me away
    my Band-Aid covers fingers
    linger on the curves of your body
    "oh how naughty"
    I say to no one
    as I stare into outer space

    your skin tastes like kiwis
    left out in the sun

    your memories smudged
    like the writing on my palm
    I wish I didn't want you
    I wish I didn't love you
    but

    maybe it's the loneliness getting to me
    but none of that matters
    'cause I still miss you
    I still miss you
    I still miss you
    I still miss you

    I still miss you
    I still miss you
    I still miss you
    I still miss you

    your skin tastes like kiwis
    left out in the sun
    your memories smudged
    why can writing on my palm
    I wish I had somebody
    I wish I wasn't always alone
    I wish you were here with me
    I wish you were here with me
  • [Verse 1]
    I'm much to good at
    Closing the door on confrontation
    Can't open up, pretend it's vacant
    In my head

    [Verse 2]
    I'm way too good
    At staying locked in

    I've yet to see it all

    Still so lonely with the ghost of you

    Drowning it out, chasing solitude
    Cause I just wanna be alone

    Paint the windows with the thoughts of you
    Scattered broken glass, but oh that's fine
    Drown it out like I always do
    Searching for the solitude that can be mine

    [Verse 3]
    I'm fucking bad at
    Reaching out when you tell me to
    I won't give in, I much prefer it
    In my head

    How to be human
    I've tried it all, to no avail

  • I've got nobody
    in the world alone
    I've got nobody
    pushed them all away
    I want nobody
    in the world alone
    I've got nobody

    I don't know what you've been told
    the world is cold, but on your own
    you make the world a safer place
    a closed off look, in a shut off place
    I might want to lie to you
    do something old, don't tell the truth
    choose this life for safety sake
    protect your neck, in your own place

    in the world alone
    I've got nobody
    pushed them all away
    I want nobody
    pushed them all away
    I've got nobody
    In the world alone
    I've got nobody

    I don't know what ya mamma said
    people lie and people stray
    it's best to keep away from them
    the people's choice leads to pain
    stay away from people please
    they only hurt and carry disease
    choose this life for safety sake
    a shut off look in a closed off space

    in the world alone
    I've got nobody
    pushed them all away
    I want nobody
    pushed them all away
    I've got nobody
    In the world alone
    I've got nobody
  • Verse 1
    High winds on the social sea
    S-s-s-sailboat hit a rock and was set free
    I trashed and rebelled against it all
    S-s-s-swam around hoping for some landfall

    Verse 2
    From the depth of the water rose a shelter
    P-p-p-perfect sanctuary from lies
    A hiding place from their condemning eyes
    P-p-p-protection from all you guys

    Verse 3 (interlude)
    made this place all on my own
    Comfort found in my safe zone
    Sheltered away from all your gossip
    Seclusion for me seemed like a fit

    Chorus
    Troglodyte island
    Loneliness island
    My hermit island
    Harbouringmy anxieties

    Tragedy island
    Affectionless island
    Fortified island
    Killing free and all my dreams

    Troglodyte island
    Loneliness island
    My hermit island
    Fantasy land of lunacy

    Tragedy island
    Affectionless island
    Fortified island
    Helping me breathe by choking me

    Verse 4
    I'm alone in this small place
    P-p-p-pretending I built a fortified space
    I built walls so tall that you can't climb
    P-p-p-projection of a twisted faith

    Verse 5
    Forgotten why I've hidden here
    B-b-b-built of bricks made out of tears
    Unworthy of any of your passions
    D-d-d-drown myself in imagined fears

    Chorus
    Troglodyte island
    Loneliness island
    My hermit island
    Harbouringmy anxieties

    Tragedy island
    Affectionless island
    Fortified island
    Killing free and all my dreams

    Troglodyte island
    Loneliness island
    My hermit island
    Fantasy land of lunacy

    Tragedy island
    Affectionless island
    Fortified island
    Helping me breathe by choking me

    Troglodyte island
    Loneliness island
    My hermit island
    Harbouring my anxieties

    Tragedy island
    Affectionless island
    Fortified island
    Killing me and all my dreams

    Troglodyte island
    Loneliness island
    Ball and chain island
    Fantasy land of lunacy

    Tragedy island
    Affectionless island
    Fortified island
    Helping me breathe by choking me

    I don't know what this is now
    I just to want to find out how
    I was trying to find myself (connect this with last line in rhythm)
    Before I took my final bow

    I don't know what I was thinkin
    All thoughts of you gone
    I'll try to bring this back (connect this last line in rhythm)
    To the place where we found out why

    1:09-1:43 (chorus)
    Living without each other
    Made us live in fear
    We live across a wasteland
    Of empty streets, no cars or people

    I cannot guess what made me
    Come so far apart
    Nothing seems to be between us
    Yet we've just come apart

    1:44-2:00 (bridge) (no vocals)

    2:01-2:35 (verse 2)
    I guess this is just what
    Things have become for now
    I went to find myself to
    Bring a body back to life

    Perhaps we were overthinkin
    But now you have moved on
    Maybe we deserve each other's (connect with the next line in rhythm)
    Silence across wires and landlines

    2:36-2:53 (antiverse of verse 2)
    I don't know the way back
    Can we turn back time
    To bring this back then
    I guess we'll never learn why

    2:54-3:26 (2nd chorus)
    Living without each other
    Made us live in fear
    We live across a wasteland
    Of empty streets, no cars or people

    I cannot guess what made me
    Come so far apart
    Nothing seems to be between us
    Yet we've become apart

    3:45-4:36 (verse 3)
    Maybe it's time to move on
    From this track of lost time
    But I can't help but think why
    We used to talk but don't now

    I guess it's hopeless thinkin
    You would hear this song
    But we want to live through pain
    Instead of dying through love

    4:37-5:28 (3rd chorus)
    Living without each other
    Made us live in fear
    We live across a wasteland
    Of empty streets, no cars or people

    Nothing seems to be between us

  • Ushuaia
    I won't be me there
    I'll be someone else just across the bay
    Ushuaia
    Don't follow me there
    Who I was is not the one you'd meet today
    In Ushuaia

    Corner of my eye is where the tourists linger
    Indistinct and nimble
    Round the mundo, out of view

    Patterns of my sentimental daydream hours
    As I trace the dockside
    They no longer play a muse

    Ushuaia
    I won't be me there
    I'll be someone else just across the bay
    Ushuaia
    Don't follow me there
    Who I was is not the one you'd meet today
    In Ushuaia

    It feels like a new beginning
    I'm gonna be someone else alone
    If I can defy the tundra
    Survive as the one who's still at home
    The north ain't too forbidding
    I'm not running from, I'm running to
    The end is the new beginning
    Alone, no, anew in
    Ushuaia
    I won't be me there
    I'll be someone else just across the bay
    Ushuaia
    Don't follow me there
    Who I was is not the one you'd meet today
    Down in Ushuaia
  • People they
    leave me feeling
    much
    too strange

    I
    prefer to be
    following
    this path

    On my own
    I'm better off
    I'm better off
    Alone
    Cause by your side
    I'm lonelier
    I'm lonelier than alone
    Alone
    Alone
    Alone

    On my own
    I'm better off
    I'm better off
    Alone
    Cause by your side
    I'm lonelier
    I'm lonelier than alone
    Alone
    Alone
    Alone

    A rebel
    In a single
    Man like me

    It's better
    That I
    take
    a stand

    On my own
    I'm better off
    I'm better off
    Alone
  • first moment my eyes are opened
    hoping it was just a dream
    not so lucky news says it’s still growing
    so I will have to lean on you again

    isolated but not alone
    your love given for free
    could you make this house a home
    unconditionally

    struggle thru the day
    little problems magnified
    stress washes away
    when you look into my eyes

    isolated but not alone
    your love given for free
    could you make this house a home
    unconditionally

    they say birds of a feather
    are the ones most likely to flock

    cut off from family and friends
    missing them but cant help out
    until I can see them again
    you alleviate my doubts

    isolated but not alone
    your love given for free
    could you make this house a home
    unconditionally

    they say birds of a feather
    are the ones most likely to flock
    but when we are together
    a lovely melting pot

  • What day is it?
    It’s hard to tell
    The life of a tortoise
    Contained in this shell
    All things considered
    It’s going quite well
    Could be stir crazy
    I try not to dwell

    I have the time
    To get to know myself
    too much time
    Can be bad for the health
    Lonesomeness
    can be good when it’s felt
    too much of anything
    Can become your own hell
    CHORUS
    It’s been so long
    Since I’ve seen you in person
    Makes me wonder
    If the effort is worth it
    I need a reminder
    What was the purpose
    All these feelings
    Bubble up to the surface

    Excited to see you
    Without the glass in between
    It’s just not the same
    Touching a screen
    Now it’s the new normal
    Part of the routine
    All of a sudden
    It’s not so extreme
    VERSE 2
    Been making new friends
    Who I’ll never meet
    Hangout on the web
    Since we can’t in the street
    The closest we’ll be
    No more than six feet
    At least I can feel
    My own heartbeat

    Somehow I’m alone
    but not all the same
    Since we all are
    It seems so mundane
    It does look bleak
    Like it’s all up in flames
    But we still must try
    To keep ourselves sane
    VERSE 3
    A moment of silence
    For the life that once was
    Things once took for granted
    like Handshakes and hugs
    We’ll all keep our distance
    It’s still not enough
    To stop humanity
    From spreading the love

    We’re in it together
    No man is an island
    Even with your mask
    I see your eyes smiling
    We might feel alone
    But it’s not an asylum
    Let’s keep our heads up
    And we’ll beat this virus
  • you saw us laugh
    we'd forgot your face
    well you got last
    our only fate
    in daylight you pass
    day or night
    on your task

    Here you go, brang us a plague
    Here you go, circling the world
    Here you go, brang us a plague
    Here you go, killing the world

    War we thought
    its in your hand
    we're all yours
    every land

    it's all your choice
    we're in your hands
    brought us a plague
    to bring us to our knees
    bow down to you now
    you take who you want
    gave us a plague
    to make us yours again
    here you go
    on your task
    what can we do
    we fight you our best
    but you will always win

    Here you go, killing the world
    Here you go, brang us a plague
    Here you go, circling the world
    Here you go, brang us a plague
    Here you go, killing the world
    Here you go, brang us a plague
    Here you go, circling the world
    Here you go, brang us a plague

  • I feel like at home
    maybe cause that’s where I am
    I am here all day
    counting my fingers, and making music that no one wants to hear.

    I live on welfare,
    sometimes that makes me feel bad, but now is ok...
    thanks Pandemic, I am not the only one on this cruise
    Yeah!

    No longer going out
    kinda sad, but also ok
    don’t want my imaginary granma to get sick...
    I am better than those party kids.

    Already stocked toilet paper
    and cough syrup with vicodin
    it gets me high baby (but it's still legal),
    my online friends do not approve
    of hardcore stuff.
    Yeah!

    Time in family
    Time in family
    Better spend our time in the virtual reality
    Better spend our time in the virtual reality

    Time in family
    Time in family
    Better spend our time in the virtual reality
    Better spend our time embedded to our reality

    I am even getting called by my mom
    she is happy that I am not yet dead
    thanks pandemic, people do remember my name...

    I am trying, I am not trying hard
    I am going, I am not going out
    these walls are never falling down
    I reinforced em and I don’t feel the germ
    but I wonder why the wallpaper melts.

    Time in family
    Time in family
    Better spend our time in the virtual reality
    Better spend our time in the virtual reality

    Time in family
    Time in family
    Better spend our time in the virtual reality
    Better spend our time embedded to our reality
  • Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhhhh

    Sometimes I remember
    How much that I forget
    Memories that I cherished
    Before life's sunset

    I wish I could go back
    To an earlier day
    Spoken: Oh just to breath the fresh air

    Dreaming of yesterday and please forgive me somehow
    Never thought that I would be so sorry
    Right now I'm sad that I am, I am

    I need you in my dreams
    Not Yet
    I see you in my dreams
    Just in time
    I need you in my dreams
    Not Yet
    I see you in my dreams
    Just in time
    I need you in my dreams
    Please Come
    I see you in my dreams
    Just in time
    I need you in my dreams
    Not Yet
    I see you in my dreams
    Just in time
    I need you in my dreams
    Please Come
    I see you in my dreams
    Just in time
    I need you in my dreams
    Please Come
    I see you in my dreams
    Just in time
  • Stuck Inside With You
    By Pan de Mic

    (Vocoded, spoken Intro)
    The world is going crazy
    Our minds are going hazy
    But I'm still smilin', it's true
    'Cos I'm stuck inside….with…..you….

    (Verse Öñ?)
    Diseases spreading rampant
    Everybody's cryin'
    Prayin' to the ones that
    Never heard you the first time
    Sucking on the quiet lies
    Telling us to stay inside
    To stop the diseases
    And stop all the dying

    (Chorus)
    But you know that I'm not sad
    Fact, I'm rather glad, it's true
    Even though I'm stuck inside
    I'm stuck inside with you

    (Post-Chorus)
    STUCK INSIDE WITH YOU!
    STUCK INSIDE WITH YOU!
    AHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!

    (Verse Þwø)
    Come into my room, my dear
    Got some music for you
    Lemme play some guitar, it's called Wonderwall
    And Sweet Home Alabama, too
    Let's wash our hands real nicely
    Get them nice and clean, oh yeah
    Let's hold our hands and talk
    I'll tell you what I've gleaned
    (Chorus)
    Pandemics, they don't matter
    One day, it'll pass, it's true
    But for now, I'm stuck inside
    And I'm stuck inside with you

    (Post-Chorus)
    STUCK INSIDE WITH YOU!
    STUCK INSIDE WITH YOU!
    AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!

    (Industrial/Grungy Break/Solo. Just go nuts.)


    (Repeat bridge, getting more vocoded)

    (Verse ?h?ë?)
    Businesses are shutting down
    Kids comin' home from school
    Countries closin' borders
    The world just isn't cool
    But even in the wrong
    When I look in your eyes
    It makes the world's problems
    Seem like a party, a surprise!


    AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAH!
  • They’ve thrown me on the street
    Got nothing left to eat
    And I’m waiting
    City streetlamps fading

    It’s closed my business down
    The crowd around the town
    Has came and went
    But I’ve still got rent

    And we’ll be dusting down our pantries
    All cold and cooped up in this hole
    You’ll be eating through your fantasies
    As we lose all of our control

    We’ve rushed out everywhere
    But all the shelves are bare
    As carts rattle by
    Filled with aisles towards the skies
    The shoppers pack their loads
    And fly out on the road
    With rolls stuffed tight
    Until the wheel’s out of sight

    And did you hear ’bout Mr. Gideon?
    His bags pinned him on the frame
    His car swerved right across the median
    And blew apart in the next lane

    They said it won’t be long
    We know what’s going on
    Sweating down their backs
    Blurting out all their facts

    And now I’m stuck in bed
    There’s music in my head
    And it never stops
    Keeping time with my coughs

    And we’ll have fingers sticking down our mouths
    The line shoots right out the door
    And if we gag, nothing will come out
    Our empty stomachs have no more







  • We should have seen these signs some years ago
    But hindsight won't show what we need to know
    The doctors can't contain its vicious spread
    Now they're reporting forty million dead
    Rearing its head before our very eyes
    An express train ride, next stop: paradise

    I can't sit idly by
    And watch so many people die
    What can I really do
    If science hasn't broken through?
    Yet I still feel compelled
    To formulate and make all well
    I swear I will not rest
    Before I cure the viral pest

    I've been experimenting night and day
    But feel I've done no good, to my dismay
    Feels like this virus has me by the throat
    But I still soldier toward the antidote

    Tests week after week
    Still I'm leagues from what I seek
    Nothing's come from all my work
    The path to cure is think with murk
    How much time has passed?
    How much longer can this last?
    How much closer can I get?
    Shall I quit? Is my fate set?

    No! There's still more to give.
    This won't defeat me while I live.
    All that I've already done
    Will be worth it once we've won.
    Though my drive may be quite low
    Still I shall commit to go
    Nothing shall occupy my brain
    Until this viral beast lies slain!

    Bit by bit it shows itself
    All my work is going well
    For so long have I labored here
    I'm starting to be gripped by fear
    What's this cough and stomachache?
    Should I take a day-long break?
    Is it hot or am I stressed?
    What's this feeling in my chest?

    They might say that I'm too far gone
    But they can't see the path I'm on
    This cure is right around the bend
    There's no way I am at my end
    Though I grow weaker, I can see
    This antidote shall come from me
    I'm full of life and so damn close
    To ending my more recent woes
    No I'm not going out this way
    There's still so much I have to say
    I'm not done yet, look in my eye
    I'm sure it's not my time to die
  • usta worry about the weather
    usta be kinda a snob
    spent all my time trying to look better
    now i’m worried if I’ll ever find a job again
    everything that seemed important
    falls away horizons shortened
    everything I thought I’d build
    don’t dare to hope I still will


    new normal now - total isolation
    keeping all away
    alone with my thoughts is what I’m facing
    not so different than before anyway


    everything that seemed important
    falls away horizons shortened
    everything I thought I’d build
    don’t dare to hope I still will


    usta worry about the weather
    usta be kinda a snob

    everything that seemed important
    falls away horizons shortened
    everything I thought we’d build
    don’t dare to hope I still will

  • Empyrean's Elucidation

    (I'm coming for you...)

    Verse
    It never ends
    But cannot be forever
    While no plan is perfect
    We must respect the purpose

    Life's little lessons
    Of learning with this distance
    No doubting of your mission
    Questions, still unwritten...

    Elucidate
    Track every new case
    Choose, lose, hope and pray
    Spreading, to every place

    Chorus
    As it comes down
    Recogize today
    If we fall now
    Can we face the change?

    Verse
    Transience we live with
    Solidarity, in seeking bliss
    Is living life too big a risk?
    Only time will show, there's no easy fix

    Elucidate
    Track every new case
    Choose, lose, hope and pray
    Spreading, to every place

    Chorus
    As it comes down
    We recognize
    If we fall now
    We change, or die!

    (...I am coming for your breath...)

    Chorus
    As it comes down
    Call to action
    Feeling warmer now
    Bliss, the true mission

    As we come down
    Feel the space now
    In the whole range
    How to change?

    (Nooooo!)

  • The quarantine will last much longer
    Can't spell the word
    without RANT
    Don't force a smile to win me over
    Don't touch me
    With! Your! Bare! Hands!


    And if we spoke to each other
    Then I would tell you flat
    There's zero tolerance from me
    If! You're! See-! King! That!


    We're in indefinite confinement
    Old king is dead
    New dish is news
    There is no greater joy to find out
    I've lost the best
    Now! I'm! Stuck! with! you!


    And if we spoke to each other
    Then I would tell you flat
    There's zero tolerance from me
    If! You're! See-! King! That!


    And if we spoke to each other
    Then I would tell you flat
    There's zero tolerance from me
    If! You're! See-! King!
    And you must think it's so funny
    But I will tell you that
    There's zero tolerance from me
    If! You're! See-! King! That!
  • VERSE 1:
    I can’t see the light
    ‘Cause the sun don’t shine inside

    Open up your heart
    Keeping us six feet apart

    I don’t know when
    This isolation will end
    I miss your touch
    Wish you could take my hand, no

    CHORUS:
    I don’t know how
    I don’t know when
    This misery is going to end
    I’ve got to reach you now

    I don’t know how
    I don’t know when
    I’m doing everything that I can
    To see you now

    VERSE 2:
    Talking to myself
    Trying to remember your voice
    Knowing that this was your choice

    Memories haunt my dreams
    You were right here beside me
    And now it’s empty space
    My tears remind me

    I don’t know when
    I’ll get to feel your kiss
    I miss your touch
    I hope this isn’t the end, no

    CHORUS:
    I don’t know how
    I don’t know when
    This misery is going to end
    I’ve got to reach you now (I’ve got to reach you now)

    I don’t know how
    I don’t know when
    I’m doing everything that I can
    To see you now

    BRIDGE:
    It doesn’t even matter
    I’m all alone
    You won’t pick up the phone
    It doesn’t even matter
    You and I ain’t growing old

    CHORUS:
    I don’t know how
    I don’t know when
    The misery is going to end
    I’ve got to reach you now

    I don’t know how
    I don’t know when
    I’m doing everything that I can
    To see you now

    I don’t know how

  • [Verse 1]
    We’ll throw a huge party
    Get to drinking, stop being alone
    Invite everybody
    Stay out late and never go back home

    [Chorus]
    When this is over
    We’ll all agree we went a little insane
    When this is over
    We’ll all wonder why things had to change

    When this is over

    [Verse 2]
    You’ll all come over
    Bring some games and bring some friends
    We’ll laugh for hours
    Just have to wait until this ends

    [Chorus]
    When this is over
    We’ll all agree we went a little insane
    When this is over
    We’ll all wonder why things had to change

    When this is over

    [Bridge - Probably just music, can’t think of a logical connection]

    [Verse 3]
    I’ll knock on your door
    Just like I used to do before
    You’ll open it and smile
    We’ll talk about how it’s been a while

    I’ll put my arms around you
    Hope I never have to let go
    And then we’ll watch a movie
    And just hold hands and take it slow

    [Chorus]
    When this is over
    We’ll all agree we went a little insane
    When this is over
    We’ll all wonder why things had to change

    When this is over
  • What’s with all the obsession
    With the sun
    I don’t get it might hit it
    Machine gun
    When it gets lit I might split
    Hit and run
    After I split I take shit
    I need some
    Toilet paper
    Or lack of thereof
    Cause a grocery raper
    Unheard of
    Is making me use sandpaper
    For my bum
    Making me use wallpaper
    It’s not fun
    I’m shootin him in his gaper
    It’s lotta fun
    Sittin on a skyscraper
    Under hot sun
    Some day, this’ll be over
    No scratch that, this’ll never be over
    Since the day I thought ‘it’s all over’
    Since that day, I never been sober
    I don’t have to be, I don’t have to, see?
    All this shit around me’s free
    I could commit arsony
    I could go hit Hawaii
  • INTRO CHANT/SCENE (marcato stage whispers)
    Listen! - In the dark! -
    - It lurks and scurries...

    Damn it! - Bunker up!
    A death to those who wait
    for chance encounters

    Careful! - Stay away! -
    Just toss the food
    and hope to god they drown

    Leave it! - Watch yourself!
    You must poison the rat,
    before it poisons you...

    Aaaa-aa-aa-
    oooooh (*ooh*)
    (like a ship rocking up to the crest of a huge wave, then splashing down)

    VERSE 1 (sung)
    Hardened critters, skittering doom
    infected fleas to feast on you
    steal our food or a place to slumber
    tearing through our wheat and lumber

    CHORUS
    Time to Kill!
    A penny for a tail!
    A plague on the world,
    this travelling ill!

    Wretched rat,
    will never show mercy
    It's time we hunt them back

    VERSE 2
    Smarter than man so what can man do?
    Maybe our pets can feast well too!
    Feral cats and terrier dogs,
    Train them hard at the slaying job!

    CHORUS 2
    Time to Kill!
    A penny for a tail!
    A plague on the world,
    with this travelling ill!

    Wretched rat,
    We’ll never show mercy
    So snuff them out my friends

    VERSE 3
    You let men die as you watch them pester,
    Who would let them breed and fester?
    Wicked evil grown from flesh
    I’ll pay you to avenge the dead

    CHORUS 3
    Time to Kill!
    A penny for a tail!
    A plague on the world,
    this travelling ill!

    Wretched rat,
    Will never show mercy
    so save our mortal souls

    OUTRO/SCENE (sung and spoken)
    Save our mortal soouls sung
    Oooo -ooh--

    Oh Listen!
    Stay Back!
    (oooh) The rat is death!

    Damn it!
    He won't listen!
    That fool thinks he can end it!
    (What now?)

    Time to Kill! (a flea upon his back!)
    Save our mortal soouls sung

    No!

    Time to die (a penny to the wind!)
    (Save our mortal souls...)
