  • I’m dreaming of majestic halls,
    Summer snow and crimson walls…

    When the sun rises baby,
    I’m thinking of your granite eyes
    My supple lips, your fingertips,
    Whistling wind, bodies intertwined
    We kiss and laugh baby,
    Dance away right through the night
    I’m tryna be comely, love me
    Pull me closer in

    Tonight I’m loving him in all his might,
    Mountain tall, I’m in his thrall

    Feel so high, in the sky
    The pyres, so grand in their size
    Put it in my fire, baby,
    Show me how hard men rise
    Swing with me, mountain king
    I wanna hang on to the prize
    Let me go now, baby
    And undress me with your eyes

    Tonight I’m loving him in all his might,
    Mountain tall, I’m in his thrall

    Now I enter you baby,
    Push in this blade, surprise!
    Powers fleeting, much like bleeding,
    The time of my family’s arrived,
    I’ve seduced you, now reduced you,
    My soldiers have taken the keep
    One last kiss, in my bliss
    A woman may take this crown to keep

    Tonight I’m taking all of his might,
    Men will fall, to a girl with no name
    Regicide, song of the blade,
    I’ve got it made!
  • Rebirth
    Inspired by I. Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.

    Buried and waiting
    I want to be soaring
    Our time has not yet come

    Watching and praying
    I will not be staying
    We're waiting for the sun



    Red, yellow, gold
    The fires are still cold
    As the tales where told
    Burning uncontrolled

    Many years ago
    From the far below
    Through the dark shadows
    Emerging through the glow

    A forgotten dream
    Not what it seemed
    Flying through streams
    Between dazzling beams

    Step up to the line
    The lift off is mine
    I can see the signs
    Now time to shine


    Rising from the ashes
    Legendary creature reborn

    Visions past and future
    An oracle of all times

    Flashes of vibrant colour
    Feathers shining like no other

    Rising with no limit
    Legendary creature takes off

  • Music adapted from Der Holle Roche from Mozart's The Magic Flute
    Libretto from Dies Irae
    -------------------------------
    Dies iræ, dies illa,
    Solvet sæclum in favílla:
    Teste David cum Sibýlla.

    Quantus tremor est futúrus,
    Quando Iudex est ventúrus,
    Cuncta stricte discussúrus!

    Tuba, mirum spargens sonum
    Per sepúlchra regionum,
    Coget omnes ante thronum.

    Mors stupébit, et natúra,
    Cum resúrget creatura,
    Iudicánti responsura.

    Recordáre, Iesu pie,
    Quod sum causa tuæ viæ:
    Ne me perdas illa die.

    Rex!
    Salva me!
    -------------------------------
    English translation:
    The day of wrath, that day,
    Will dissolve the world in ashes:
    David being witness along with the Sibyl.

    How great will be the quaking,
    when the Judge is about to come,
    strictly investigating all things!

    The trumpet, scattering a wondrous sound
    through the sepulchres of the regions,
    will summon all before the throne.

    Death and nature will marvel,
    when the creature will rise again,
    to respond to the Judge.

    Remember, merciful Jesus,
    that I am the cause of Thy journey:
    lest Thou lose me in that day.

    King!
    Save me!
  • > This song steals from JS. Bach’s Prelude No.1 in C Major (aka BWV 846). The bassline and lead synth are using the exact melody from the prelude but with a different rhythm.

  • Give me solace in this broken space
    Give me semblance of saving faith
    Now I lay me down to sleep
    One last breath my soul to keep

    Can you erase the sin and fear
    Let me lie with conscience clear
    Bleeding out in a blanket night
    Fading out in a falsehood light

    I’m going down without a fight
    Letting go of Ritalin-fueled nightmares
    Solace is a thing of scarcity
    I hear you praying somewhere for my sorry soul
    Stop your whispering calls
    To a devil who’ll never know
    Nothing really matters (really matters) on the whole
    Now that I am no more

    I die for the sins that bore me
    And all the ones that came before me
    There’s no redemption to be found here
    I die for the weft that waned me
    And for the slings that never hanged me
    There’s no more to life than this living lie


    You want more time to clean the slate?
    Too little, angel, and much too late
    Everything you thought was innocence—faked
    And you’re lying to us both to escape this fate
    Now that you know the end is near
    Face up to all your decadent fears
    Admit you never had what it takes
    To figure out the transient highs and rakes
    You never were the one you thought you had
    Now your sighs are screams instead
    Let me die before it’s too late
    Face your fears and face the hate

    Lyrics based on "Elemental Drifts" By Walt Whitman

    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    -----------------

    I want that you should feel
    the essence that's within me
    and the spirit inside us all
    Light and sound in the hall

    Thumping and rising ethereal
    Pumping from public material
    Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
    Ecstatic and spreading emotion

    Floating over shores that we know
    Ripples continually washing
    White noise bathing with vibrance
    Rejoicing in heavenly guidance

    Casting off deep seated boundaries
    Musing on southwardly autumn
    Never alone, eternal companions
    Ourselves floating, reveried abandon

    Pleasure expressing our musings
    Spirits are trailing above us
    Between edges of earth and water
    We've seen bridges beckoing yonder

    Drifting Elemental Wonder x4

    Mind captured in fascination
    Our eyes beholding the splendor
    Breathtaking peeks through the window
    Earthshaking streaks from the inflow

    Snowflakes above, sand down below
    Driftwood, floats over the waves
    Reflections of love in the mist
    From the shores we have been kissed

    Leaves fall from the heavens
    Tides come, they push and they pull
    Dancing for miles, sweat breaking
    Dreams of gentle waves wake me

    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    The beats keep rising ethereal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    A peace overcomes me so surreal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Ecstatic and spreading emotion

    Right here, now. there and then
    Old thoughts of likenesses float past
    Presented far off the horizon
    From the shores we now see an island

    Myself always sees you eternal
    Facing our next steps unknown
    The beautiful voices uplifting
    Impalpable breezes, we're drifting

    Drifting mysterious ocean
    Pulls you towards me closer and closer,
    We move, the music is surging
    Gather, our bodies are merging

    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    The beats keep rising ethereal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    A peace overcomes me so surreal
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Emphatic ebbing of the ocean
    Drifting Elemental Wonder
    Ecstatic and spreading emotion
  • What we have is falling
    Eyes wide open

    Each day we see it
    Sacrifice

    Each day we believe it
    Wake inside

    A dream all but forgotten
    Save this life

    A heart just for stealing
    Open wide

    Take one, leave one
    Hold one, fear one
    Keep one, dream one
    Leave me alone
    I just want this
    I just want this
    Take me home Take me home

    Forgotten left bleeding
    Assign

    Far from this feeling
    Pass a fire

    Born of this mission
    Clear my mind

    Choice of the freedom
    Blessed alive

    Take one, leave one
    Hold one, fear one
    Keep one, dream one
    Leave me alone
    I just want this
    I just want this
    Take me home Take me home
    (repeat with ad libs if needed)

    And my Spirit hath rejoyced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the loneline?s of his handmaiden, for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me ble??ed. For he that is mighty hath magnified me, and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him, throughout all generations. He hath ?hewed ?trrength with his arm. He hath ?cattered the proud in the imaginations of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their ?eat, and hath exalted the humble and meak. He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath ?ent empty away

    Take one, leave one
    Hold one, fear one
    Keep one, dream one
    Leave me alone
    I just want this
    I just want this
    Take me home Take me home
  • I'll Move On
    Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2

    I exist just to spite you
    In spite of your misery
    In spite of me

    The broken hourglass spills
    Into the insatiable mess
    That you've made of me

    Save the unsultry lies
    I won't waste time anymore
    Don't want your chide
    I'd rather take cyanide
    I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on

    And when you speak
    All my thoughts have fled
    And when you move
    My skin feels its edge

    I won't go on
    Living like this
    I won't go on
    Living with you

    Save the unsultry lies
    I won't waste time anymore
    Don't want your chide
    I'd rather take cyanide
    I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on...

    I'm, broken, not dead (x2)

    Save the unsultry lies
    I won't waste time anymore
    No more barren reasons why
    No more incessant reprise
    I'll move on, I'll move on, I'll move on
  • 0:17

    God, forgive
    For the way I let the flames light underneath my skin
    I let them lick, and burn and turn to dust
    (I'm) ashes within
    0:34

    God forgive my partial blame for the accelerant I feed
    I'm not a pyromaniac, just a sinner who's been forced to sin
    Scorching down my throat while I mourn, rightfully scorned
    All tears, fears, blistering, a demon growing their horns
    3rd degree burns free hell's locks like a key
    I wish to flee every part of me, so help me
    So help me(so help me)

    :52

    (God) Lucifer I'm calling out I need an angel now
    The way my blood trickles and drips and slips as shadows find their ground
    The wayward slashes cut and shine and bleed with shame out of my veins
    Yeah, this haze is exactly what I wanted from this pain

    1:09
    [Hook]
    On my knees, wounds still bleeding
    While I beg on graveled ground
    When will it be alleviated, brought to life (brought to live)
    Existing, under Your command
    Where to feel
    Is to hurt
    And I'm being hurt,
    I'm being hurt

    1:43

    God forgive
    My lack of acceptance that I'm being heard
    My faith that wavers when I see others get their turn
    The vicious cycle I find myself surrounded by
    Where the only question left , the only question asked is why
    The answers are left floating like a boat on an ocean
    No direction when it's in motion
    Yet, the instance that I stop showing devotion, you close the door on me
    I thought you protected those without belief
    Or is it just that you have a problem me?

    2:18
    [Hook]

    2.52
    Lucifer, I turn to you once more
    Don't you grant favors? I find myself in need for one or more
    I see resemblance in you, I too am my father's wayward son
    I'm not an Icarus, you needn't fear I've never even seen the sun
    I know you know heat like no one does
    So when I tell you about this fire I cannot put out, that burns me from the inside out
    That fills my lungs with smoke and exhaust and exhausts while I trash about
    You are the only one I can still reach out to
    please
  • (The Calming Sound of) A Distant Train
    Chorus melody based on the aria Lasst Mich ihn nur Noch Einmal Küssen from St. Luke's Passion BMV 246

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    (Verse 1)
    Standing outside the station
    Rain was pouring down
    I saw you climbing aboard
    To ride on out of town

    So here I stand on a crowded platform
    I'm stranded all alone
    What can I do to change your mind
    And make you come back home?

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    (Verse 2)
    Late at night, I cannot sleep
    The train keeps me awake
    For my baby rides away
    Oh how my heart, it breaks

    I see your auburn hair
    And blue eyes everyday
    In every single face I pass
    You just won't go away

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    (Solo)

    (Chorus)
    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

    The calming sound of, a distant train
    The rumbling tracks in, the pouring rain
    My only true love, riding away
    Will I Love Again?

  • Verse

    The memory of this place
    Belongs to everyone at once
    But they can't quite put a finger
    On what about it feels so wrong
    It could have sprung out the ground
    10 years since the construction hit
    Someone remembers before it came
    But they don't like to think about change

    Chorus

    Nobody lives here
    They just pass through
    No river or oceans
    There's no beauty in the view
    Identical homes
    As far as can see
    An illusion of safety
    In conformity

    Verse

    Once there where forests
    That covered the land
    But now the only trees exist
    to stop land value going down
    You can see movement
    Where no motion exists
    And the town keeps breathing
    Though it's long since dead

    Chorus

    Nobody lives here
    They just pass through
    No river or oceans
    There's no beauty in the view
    Identical homes
    As far as can see
    An illusion of safety
    In conformity

    Bridge

    Chorus

    Nobody lives here
    They just pass through
    No river or oceans
    There's no beauty in the view
    Identical homes
    As far as can see
    An illusion of safety
    In conformity
  • Stealing he doth do

    From the Archives in plain view

    Running Running again

    With sheet music from a thousand men

    No copyright strike in sight

    He smiled an evil grin in his plight

    Running!

    Fighting!

    Stealing!

    All for musical pleasure!

    Running!

    Fighting!

    Steeling!

    Sheet music is his treasure!

    His quest is almost complete

    Too bad he is missing a sheet

    Off to the studio he goes

    A chiptune he will compose

    The keyboard and controller come out

    His hands flying around and about

    A complete madman he is

    For music is why lives.




    The song came along

    And didn’t take too long

    But something was amiss

    That he couldn't reminisce

    The melody was incomplete

    The rhythm had no beat

    What could it be?

    How could he not see?

    Why…. it was in front of him the whole time

    THE INTERNET

    All the sheet music in one spot

    With one google search

    He found the missing sheet

    His quest….

    Was now complete.
  • Verse
    So hard to build the railroad bridge
    They called it the devil's canyon
    No lawmen here, a town on edge,
    A ghost town now abandoned

    Chorus
    meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    Dwelled in Canyon Diablo
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help.came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts

    Verse
    The center of town was called Hell Street
    Gambling halls ran day and night
    2000 people living in the heat
    No one tells of their plight
    The wild west, it was a warning
    The danger was never greater
    When their first lawman was sworn in
    He was buried 5 hours later
    Chorus
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts
    Meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    Died in Canyon Diablo

    Verse
    Five more marshals came to town
    They were ready to shoot to kill
    But one by one they were taken down
    So many graves up on Boot Hill
    Nobody's able to tame the beast
    Those that tried met their fate
    The townsfolk left or they became deceased
    And the railroad's coming too late
    Finally the army was called on in
    To try and get it under control
    The deadly air was always haunting
    A city so full of lost souls

    Chorus
    Meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    Dwelled in Canyon Diablo
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help.came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts
    Meaner than Tombstone,
    And tougher than Dodge
    The Arizona tumbleweeds blow,
    Gamblers, drifters, and gritty outlaws
    In Hell, Canyon Diablo
    Nobody was able
    to lay down the law
    in this shady outpost
    By the time that any
    help.came at all
    Everything was gone but ghosts.

    Clockwise stir
    Disturb the foam
    I see your face
    As the bubbles form
    In my coffee
    Oh, today is the day

    Watch the trains
    As they crawl in
    Commuter's chorus
    Bursting to sing
    Smile into my cup
    Oh, today is the day


    I'm gonna dance into your arms at last
    It will be just like no time has past
    You can spin me round, turn me upside down
    But please
    Never let me go again


    Turnstile creak
    And tannoy buzz
    Common pigeon
    And the holy dove
    Hallelujah
    Oh, today is our day

    Crowds disappear
    There's only us
    The sun's a spotlight
    From high above
    They're playing our song
    Cause today is our day


    I'm gonna dance into your arms at last
    It will be just like no time has past
    Platform two will be our own dance floor
    And please
    Hold me forever more


    I'm gonna dance into your arms at last
    It will be just like no time has past
    You can spin me round, turn me upside down
    But please
    Never let me go again
  • Look, look, look, look
    She’s got her nose down buried
    Deep in someone else’s book

    Words, words, words, words
    Falling from their mouths
    Like the nests of carrion birds

    Everything known unknown again
    Circling back around the bend

    How long before she figures it out?
    How long before she gets her head out?
    How long before she gets out?
    How long to remove the lingering doubt?
    How long to get the blood out?
    How long before she gets out?

    Get her out
    Get her out
    Get me out

    There’s a story here never willing to be told
    Perpetuated by the old getting older—spinning gold
    How the hell did we let it get this far?
    Who never took their hand out the cookie jar?

    We the people making haste
    Running for our lives in this ever-losing race
    Looking for ways to let ourselves out
    Never stopping to wonder or doubt

    Who started this damn game in the first fucking place?

    Who let the Riot Grrl die on the vine?
    Cutting up emotions into neat little lines
    Swallowed or snorted to make the lies honey
    Anything—and everything—to hasten that money

    And now we cry out that the last bit’s too much?
    Everyone sighing with their pearls in a clutch
    Where were you a decade ago or two or five?
    Why did it take this long for you to be alive?

    And why didn’t you ever ask how to stop this fucking race?

    Get her out
    Get her out
    Get me all the way out of here

    Get me out
    Get us out
    Get everyone out of here

    Get me out
    Get us out
    Let’s get all the way out of here

    Get out
    Get out
    Get out...
  • What did I say to make you despise me, What did I say to make you feel hate
    What did I do for you to chastise me, What did I do to make you inflate
    A look at my history, A look at my transcript, a look at the words that fall out of my lips
    A look at the places, a look at my actions, A look into your eyes I see the tears slip
    Facing the world, I’m facing each person, I’m facing away as you think I feel shame
    Turn my back on the faces that hate me, stabbed in the back cause you think i’m to blame

    --

    We can’t find the words
    We can’t find the answers
    We can’t tell why difference is a crime

    --

    Because…
    We’re all stars,
    Drifting in the Cosmos
    Carbon based and fleeting
    In the blink of an eye
    We’re all stars
    Shining like a rainbow
    Falling like the tears
    From a broken mothers eyes

    --

    Hope is a feeling that makes us do better, but the hope of a victim is that they can break free
    The heroes of our story that we just keep writing, some other difference seems scary to me
    They see a difference, a person not like me, A person whose love is not the same shade
    They feel the emotions being squashed down inside them, the anger replaces and demons are made
    The confusion feels painful, the views that are challenged, the fear to stand up and be called
    The walk and the talk, the words that built cities, the resolve to blame others for what is our fault.

    --

    We can’t find the words
    We can’t find the answers
    We can’t tell why this life is a crime

    --

    Because
    We’re all stars
    Shooting through the night sky
    Carbon based and fleeting
    In the blink of an eye
    We’re all stars
    Shining like a rainbow
    Falling like the tears
    From the lovers torn aside
    [12:58 PM] Tomble2000: --

    We’re all stars
    We’re all glowing
    We’re all stars
    That shine throughout this life
    We’re all Stars
    Unique in our own sameness
    We’re all stars
    That will flicker out and die

    --

    We all have scars
    Written on our faces
    We all have scars
    We hide inside our hearts
    We all have scars
    That echo through the night sky
    Like falling stars
    We’re gone in the blinking of an eye

  • Promises baked in a panna cotta
    A spoon of happiness is added up
    It's all wrapped with your broken heart

    I won't leave my house
    I could stay the same but I don't wanna lie

    Don't you ever get tired from all the positive vibes?
    Like a mind game, but you never good at it
    Why don't you try once again to call me back?
    I've got the feeling but I lose the spirit

    I was giving up to give you a try
    Then I feel a feeling left to dry
    You ain't coming to get me back
    You ain't coming to get me back

    I know it is not easy for you when trying so hard
    Although you know in the end you can't win
    Why don't you take a rest of your head and heart?
    Ask yourself, is it me the person you believed in?
    Is it me the person you believe?


    Meet me back on Fridate night
    Meet me back right on time
  • [CHORUS]
    Oh shit! Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!
    Today is going great [sarcasm]
    Boss I beg you not to fire me
    I've got a good excuse, you'll see

    Let me tell you how this came to be

    [Verse 1 - the alarm]
    Wake up feeling great before my alarm
    Lie in a bit because what's the harm
    Roll over and yell "oh cock!"
    Because it's nearly eleven o'clock!

    I didn't press the one button to turn it on

    [Verse 2 - Missing a sock]
    Roll out of bed like a sleepy scared invertibrate
    Grab my nearest clothes who cares if they coordinate?
    For my feet - oh no, oh fuck!
    I only have a single sock

    Why does dryer keep eating my socks?

    [CHORUS]
    Oh shit! Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!
    Today is going great [sarcasm]
    Boss I beg you not to fire me
    I've got a good excuse, you'll see

    [Verse 3 - the car]
    Jump in my car and it feels like shite
    Like it's leaning to the right
    Unlike other automobiles
    My one has only got three wheels

    I was going to get up early and take it to the garage!

    Verse 4 - change for public transport
    I'll ride to work on the forty-two bus
    The driver says "that'll be two bucks"
    There's a dollar ninety-nine in my back pocket
    And I can't find my fucking wallet

    Oh! I remember! I left it in my car

    [CHORUS]
    Oh shit! Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!
    Today is going great [sarcasm]
    Boss I beg you not to fire me
    I've got a good excuse, you'll see

    [SOLO]

    [Breakdown - it get's weird]
    My shoe is rubbing at my heel / Can't drive a car without a wheel
    I walk to work and I don't look / And miss one turn I shoulda took
    On some abandoned piece of land / A Martian with six-fingered hands
    Asked how I cope with only five / And said he'll take me for a drive
    He took me to his UFO / And showed me things that I didn't know
    Asked for my brain to run tests on / But I don't have enough of one
    And that's why I'm
    Late for Work today
  • In the reeds
    Entangled fantasy, my mind is bound
    Waterlogged, drowning
    Finding breath

    It’s clear to me
    The proud oak tree was once seed
    Poisoned, dying
    Baby’s breath

    In black, the need
    Blindly feeling the everything of nothing
    Pressure, choking
    One more breath

    Every time I hold you,
    You’re nothing like what I want this to be

    I would dream
    My soul in you, euphoria I would keep
    Fingertips, tracing
    Shallow breath

    Icy crash, reality
    The sun I’ll never see, as I’m drowning
    Grasping, reaching
    Hold my breath

    A welcome breach
    I’m finally red-blooded, gushing
    Sinking, leaving
    To start afresh

    A brand new breath,
    This nightmare ends,
    Cleansing myself, renewing my soul
    This mortal plane I’ve left

  • Close my eyes
    Collapse into my bed, where
    I’ll try to clear my head, but

    No surprise
    I’ve gotten in way too deep, how
    much longer I can keep


    Myself from picturing your face
    All night and every day
    The only thing I want to see

    But you will never think of me
    So I can’t let you be
    the reason I can’t fall asleep


    Tried my best
    I kept it to myself, yeah
    So we could still be friends, but

    Love repressed
    Still finds a way to grow, oh
    I couldn’t keep it low, so


    I’m still picturing your face
    All night and every day
    The only thing I want to see

    But you will never think of me
    So I can’t let you be
    the reason I can’t fall asleep


    Wish I could sink into this bed
    Clear all the thoughts inside my head
    Forget the way you make me feel
    And dream of anything else, but


    I’m still picturing your face
    All night and every day
    The only thing I want to see

    But you will never think of me
    So I can’t let you be
    the reason I can’t fall asleep
  • Verse 1
    Harsh features masked in blood
    An ancient resignation
    Lying facedown in the mud
    A medieval superstition

    Prechorus

    A moon the color of the sand

    Chorus 1
    The first letter of the Name
    A heart so white
    Both faces look the same

    Retrace the steps that trapped me here
    Watch as the revolver spins

    The second letter of the Name
    A heart so white
    Both faces look the same
    By evening moonlight

    Lost in a linear labyrinth
    A bullet in the belly
    The diamonds in the window

  • It’s Monday morning, I’m staring out of the window again
    Without a warning, my alarm went off at 6:30 AM
    The coffee’s cold and the sky is grey, I wish it could be any other day
    Monday morning, I pray to god that soon you will end

    As the week moves on
    I’m feeling better, I’m going strong
    But no, not today
    Not today

    Now it’s raining, and I am wishing that I could be in bed
    Eight hours remaining, time is moving so slowly, it’s driving me mad
    Always repeating, always the same, the sound of raindrops on the windowpane
    Fatigue is reigning, over everything else inside my head

    As the week moves on
    I’m feeling better, I’m going strong
    But no, not today
    Not today

    Every week the same again (over and over again)
    This story never ends (over and over again)

    As the week moves on
    I’m feeling better, I’m going strong
    But no, not today
    Not today
  • A depressed optimist with a penchant
    For locking up what I love behind walls
    My sense of music collecting dust when I'm not looking
    Cause I'm not looking forward to pain

    An ex-musician with no strings attached
    A guitar between boxes, never unpacked
    Going searching's just asking for
    Memories to float back up
    Those are ashes that I've laid to rest

    Don't ask me to play you a song
    All I've got is disappointment
    Can't touch the strings since I've been gone
    It just feels wrong
    It sounds so suffocating now

    Borrowing trouble from tomorrow
    Cause yesterday's won't last
    Do I remember still how to hold the chords?
    I know the strength has left me fast

    Not yet a fully fledged coward
    I tried about two years ago
    And that feeling resides, like the tears in my eyes
    On the bottom of my heart, out of control

    Don't ask me to show how it's done
    All I've got is disappointment
    Can't touch the strings since I've been gone
    It just feels wrong
    It sounds so suffocating now
  • Psychopomp

    [Verse]
    It's all an illusion
    Covering what lies beneath
    On the other side

    Only you can see
    The truth of the universe
    It's becoming clear

    Close your eyes and meditate
    In this solitude you know
    You shall find yourself

    Good things come to those who wait
    In the darkness you behold
    What's inside yourself

    [Prechorus 0:45]
    This began with just another easy lie
    This began with just another easy lie

    [Chorus 0:54]
    You are the veil between the worlds
    You are the hand on my shoulder
    Behind the mystery unfurled
    Waits something much older

    Separate the physical from what lies beyond
    In the end, it will all be one

    [Verse 1:39]
    Don't you look too deep
    Look too close and you might see
    What the shadows hide

    Just beyond the veil
    In the corner of your eye
    Something drawing near

    But you shouldn't be afraid
    Once it's over you will know
    What the shadows hide

    Greeted by the one who waits
    Something almost like a crow
    It will be your guide

    [Prechorus]
    This began with just another easy lie
    This began with just another easy lie

    [Chorus]
    You are the veil between the worlds
    You are the hand on my shoulder
    Behind the mystery unfurled
    Waits something much older

    Separate the physical from what lies beyond
    In the end, it will all be one
  • In this moment in time,
    The highest peaks unfold.
    The world begins to shape,
    Like stories we were told.

    And went just when settling down,
    It all comes to unwind.
    Quickly begins to fall,
    Down to a trough.

    This Moment in Time

    This Moment in Time

    For every coming tide,
    Is just bunch of waves.
    And every coming wave,
    A bunch of water drops.

    Just as the water climbs,
    It all comes to stop.
    Then it recedes away,
    Every last single drop.
    ---
    Every mountain has a peak,
    Every ocean has a floor.
    Just as we learn to speak,
    Were already at deaths door.

    We're all moments in time,
    A story of ups and downs.
    And while this moment is mine,
    Its just a drop, in a wave, in a tide, that'll always come around.

    We are moments, we're moments in time.
    We are moments, we're moments in time.
    We are moments, we're moments in time.
    We are moments, we're moments in time.
  • Found myself in this crumbling place
    Hell is raging all around
    Mud and guts upon my face
    No way I’m dying in this far away place

    I hear her cry, reaching out for me
    Feel it in my heart, it sings
    Step by step, I’m walking on and out
    Home is where I’ll head

    Whispers of the dead,
    Chilling my soul, I’m back in the role
    Back in the romance I was fed,
    I strip away the fable and clear my head

    Sipping rum in Montego Bay,
    An age apart from where I’ve been
    From khaki to a suit, I went my way
    To here in paradise, for the rest of days

    I hear her cry, reaching out for me
    Feel it in my heart, it sings
    Step by step, I’m walking on and out
    Home is where I’ll head

    One step at a time, on the yellow brick road
    From living for glory, to living for life
    Surrounded by love, came back from the fire,
    My love and my home, our miracle child,
    In family, peace, and love, my only desire

    I hear it call, beckoning for me
    Feel it in my heart, it sings
    Every step I walked it moved me on
    Home is where I rest my head
    Been to war, been with family
    I’ve lived and loved and found my peace
    Been a thousand places, seen so many faces
    And loved the world that wanted me dead

    No one ever answers me why
    Lost in love without a lover
    I'm Helpless and scared all over
    Lying on my back like a junebug

    Squirming in place, dying alone
    Everyone leaves me on my own
    Pick me up and throw me away
    What's the point of living today?
    Lying on my back like a junebug

    Here I'm Blowing in the wind
    My corpse is passing by
    Who would wanna be your friend
    When nothing is alright
    Right
    Right

    To find me that one special friend

    Give in to me
    There’s not an option to resist this love
    Just the scent of it
    Your blissful ignorance
    I’m salivating, waiting

    Now, with this kiss I seal your fate
    Spent nights in search of you
    The window open, no escape
    I’m biting into you

    Suck you dry, not a drop goes to waste
    I’m in love with the taste and I’m getting away with it
    I don’t know why but I want you to crack
    Wings spring from your back and then fly away with me
    The hand of fate is a curious thing,
    It’s a curious thing and there’s no controlling it
    Exsanguinate then bring you back to life,
    So I can kill you twice you have no say in this

    “I only wanted to be loved by another then the last thing I remember is the dirty taste of iron.
    I still believed, had inspirations and dreams. You can’t do this to me!”
    You have no say in this
    “You chose me but I didn’t choose you and I didn’t choose this hell you’re putting me through.”
    You wanted love but bit off more than you can chew
    It’s time to pay dues
    You have no say in this

    Blood, owner unsure
    There is no cure
    Only a rising tide of blood
    Passed from tongue to tongue
    Gushing from my lungs
    Regurgitating, wading

    Your eyes bulge, corneas turn grey
    Your ribs burst out your chest
    Nothing left but to embrace the change
    And say goodbye to flesh

    You came here, such a powerful force
    I pulled you off of your horse and I’m getting away with it
    Look at you now, what a pitiful wreck
    You thought I wanted your sex and now you’re painted red
    You scream for help but nothing comes out
    Just blood in your mouth, you just have to get used to it
    Your suffering has only started, my dear
    I’m so happy you’re here.
    You have no say in this

    Seek and destroy, the cycle goes on
    Pack all your molted skin into your Louis Vuitton
    Spread your crooked wings, take off into the night
    Continue the rampage, straying further from light

    Sucked you dry, not a drop went to waste
    I’m in love with the taste and I’m getting away with it
    Look at you now, what a pitiful wreck
    You thought I wanted your sex and now you’re painted red
    The hand of fate is a curious thing,
    It’s a curious thing and there’s no controlling it
    Your suffering has only started, my dear
    I’m so happy you’re here.
    You have no say in this
  • Verse 1
    Reaching out to infinity, it seems
    There exists a universe in me
    With passing time, like a sandstone from the sea
    I'll cease to be, spread out in space by entropy
    A god without a means

    Chorus 1
    The space between every atom in my form
    Is filled with stars, their solar flares magnetic storms
    And what's the use seeking to take more than I need
    These ecru bones are housing galaxies

    Verse 2
    And just as life depends on me until I die
    In cosmic tides an atom here am I
    And when I die, my universe still will reside
    And truly thrive, till I'm reborn to many lives
    A universe collides

    Chorus 2
    The starry skies extending vast before my eyes
    A paltry prize when all of life within me lies
    Do those in me fight wars to claim my rightful name
    Does God above regard me as I regard them?

    Bridge

    Chorus 3/Outro
    The space between every atom in my form
    Is filled with stars, their solar flares magnetic storms
    And what's the use seeking to take more than I need
    These ecru bones are housing galaxies
    I know my place in outer space is just a part
    I am the End just as I know I am the Start
    In unbleached sheets I'll cease to be with church's chimes
    I am but stardust swept up in the sands of time

    The first time you rockin' your sunset trip

    Keep grooving and moving your hips
    Now blow me a kiss from those red lips
    Charge you up with a save-for-the-last sip
    Watch the road while on your sunset trip
  • Hiding underneath
    The crystal clear, blue surface
    The place where you can’t breathe
    Is where you’re doomed to serve us

    Come serve us

    You’ll be surprised
    By your demise
    ‘Cause all you hear is me

    Come hither
    Come find me
    Together, we’ll
    Fall blindly

    Into this
    Blissful water
    We’ll only need
    Each other

    Something you’ve never seen
    Enchanted by my love song
    You thought aquamarine
    Was safe but you were dead wrong

    You are dead wrong
    You are dead

    My siren call
    It caused your fall
    Still all you hear is me

    Come hither
    Come find me
    Together, we’ll
    Fall blindly

    Into this
    Blissful water
    We’ll only need
    Each other

    You are dead
  • (Verse)
    I can feel it getting colder
    Can you feel me crystallize?
    Can you see the childish wonder
    Laying just beneath my eyes?

    We can get lost in this wonder
    And forget what's all around
    Just look up at the cloudy sky
    As it snows upon the ground

    (Chorus)
    We were having a awful night
    And then the snow came down
    And it lifted us into the clouds

    We were climbing up the walls
    And then the snow came down
    And the world got lost in the shroud

    (Verse)
    Whether blizzard or a flurry
    Or else something of the same
    Love is falling from the heavens
    In 6-pointed crystal planes

    Men and women walk together
    With their children hand-in-hand
    Everybody is a neighbor
    Within the snow-covered land

    (Chorus)
    The world was crumbling around us
    And then the snow came down
    And it lifted their spirits high

    The people were losing their minds
    And then the snow came down
    And it lifted them to the sky

    (Bridge)
    No school, no work, no worries at all
    Just lay down and watch the snowflakes fall
    To believe that we were worrying at all

    (Instrumental)

    (Chorus/Outro)
    And then the snow came down
    And then the snow came down
    And then the snow came down
    And then the snow came down...
  • [Verse 1]
    The walls of this house,
    Are wearing thin.

    As I walk I hear,
    memories held within.

    The creaking floorboards,
    Whispering a tale.

    My hands though wrinkled now,
    Still slide up the handrail.

    [Chorus]
    If I ever want to reminisce,
    This house is in my mind.

    As my age begins to grow,
    My memories will decline.

    A past shrouded in fog,
    Begins to lose it’s haze.

    This house is a photo album,
    Favorite thoughts in one place.

    [Verse 2]
    All over this house,
    Great stories are told.

    Each crack and blemish,
    An epic tale unfolds.

    The people all around me,
    Shrouded in sepia.

    Although they are long gone,
    Their smiling faces remain in here.

    [Chorus]
    If I ever want to reminisce,
    This house is in my mind.

    As my age begins to grow,
    My memories will decline.

    A past shrouded in fog,
    Begins to lose it’s haze.

    This house is a photo album,
    Favorite thoughts in one place.

    in a rainbow of life and hue :rainbow:
    god herself was in the making
    and she asked me if I was Blue

    Flabbergasted I yelled my shades
    and in my skin the crimson flew
    Tangerine my sis just laughed
    god herself told me the truth:
    I'm just testing the real You.

    And the angels sang

    Leyte! Down in the Gulf
    Thousands there died
    Japan's ships weren't enough
    Kamikazes , First-ever - hit them broadside

    Biggest navy war
    ever in history
    Men - 10,000 score
    in chaotic misery
    No unified command
    Thirty three ships went down
    I.J.N. was undermanned
    Allies came aground

    CHORUS
    Kamikazes could not stop them
    Allies took the Philippines
    Japan losing all their warships
    Command knew just what it means
    Spanning hundred thousand miles
    Largest Battleship there was
    Protect Okinawa Isle
    Called the Yamato, it destructs

    BRIDGE
    Who lives, who dies? No one survives. How many lives gone?
    Eighteen hundred planes and eight hundred ships bear down on
    Japan lost all its oil - Philippines - its navy gone
    Who lives, who dies? No one survives. How many lives gone?

    VERSE
    October 1944
    Australia and US
    Retake the Leyte shores
    make Japan dispossessed
    Oust the I.J.N Navy
    MacArthur's sworn return
    They all fought so bravely
    Philippines overturned

    Shattered hulls in Leyte Gulf , sunken hulks in Leyte Gulf
    Skulls in mud in Leyte Gulf , flowing blood in Leyte Gulf

  • Verse 1:
    Come and see the sunrise, getting up for good times, feeling like I’m so high
    From the forest to the east, the ocean and the beach, know the best is gonna be mine
    Can’t let the poison infect me, hard to ignore the screams it hides
    The dawning of a new day, gonna win it my way, in good time

    Prechorus:
    The passion of my life, winning wars against society, liberate them all or bust
    Their pain and their anguish, hard for me to banish, all the disgust
    Each battle I deny
    Is one more blow I land

    Chorus:
    On this road, I’ll find a way
    To end the violence of Indigo’s past, from Pewter to Lavender I’ll never rest
    I’ll seize the day in Fuchsia City today
    The cries of the broken I’ll answer, put my mind, heart and soul to the test
    Wash away the sins of play
    Find my strength to lead the way
    See the smile in empty eyes
    Wake up to forever days

    Verse 2:
    Fire, water and stone, crashing through to the bone, fly into your doom
    Blood and thunder and rage, like ripping out the page, dominating the room
    I reach out to the monster, they’re crying out, want an end to the suffering
    In my heart I can fight, gonna do what is right, save humanity bleeding

    Prechorus:
    The mission of my life, fixing our society, pacify the fear and bloodlust
    Live in harmony with nature, everything will vanish, all the mistrust
    No battles, we deny
    Peace is close at hand

    Chorus:
    On this road, I’ll find a way
    To end the violence of Indigo’s past, from Pewter to Lavender I’ll never rest
    I’ll seize the day in Fuchsia City today
    The cries of the broken I’ll answer, put my mind, heart and soul to the test
    Wash away the sins of play
    Find my strength, to lead the way
    See the smile, in empty eyes
    Wake up to forever days

    [solo]

    Bridge:
    Their nuzzles, their roars, they’re magical
    Their love, devotion, my heart soars

    Chorus:
    On this road, I’ve found the way
    To end the violence of Indigo’s past, from Pewter to Lavender I’ll never rest
    Fuchsia hair flies, come what may
    The cries of the broken I’ll answer, put my mind, heart and soul to the test
    Washed away, in arms we play
    Found the strength to lead the way
    See the smiles, the sparkling eyes
    Forward into a brand new day

  • I am the night rider
    I am a rocker
    I am a roller
    Im an out of controller

    Do you see me, toecutter?
    Do you see me, man?
    Born with lead in his foot
    And a steering wheel in hand

    I am the night rider
    cruising at the speed of fright
    Fuel injected suicide
    Hotter than a rolling dice

    I am the chosen one
    Step right up, chum
    The mighty hand of vengeance
    On a rubber road to freedom

    Witness Me War Boys
    Shiny and Chrome
    I am awaited
    Shiny and Chrome

    Witness me, Joe
    Shiny and Chrome
    What a lovely day
    On The Fury Road

    I am the Road Warrior
    The former bronze
    Once had a family
    But those days are gone

    New blazing hellscape
    A firestorm of fear
    The roads a white line nightmare
    Survive by shifting gears

    My machine needs gasoline
    And so I chase it
    Sweet twisted steel
    And mangled faces

    No hope on the road
    Blood bag for a half life driver
    My name is Max
    Wasteland survivor

    Witness me, Blood Bag
    Shiny and Chrome
    The gates are open
    Shiny and chrome

    Witness me Max
    Shiny and chrome
    From The Citadel
    To the Thunderdome

    Witness me, Capable!
    Shiny and Chrome
    I'll ride on eternal
    Shiny and chrome

    Witness me War pups

  • From the rolling cliffs of Donegal
    To the limestone hills of Clare
    On the steps of Giant's Causeway
    He climbs up every stair

    On the thriving streets of Galway,
    With his fiddle in his hand
    The little boy plays a tune
    The music of the land

    (Little Boy Green)
    Won'cha stay a little while
    (Little Boy Green)
    Play the song of the Emerald Isle
    (Little Boy Green)
    You're such a gifted lad
    (Little Boy Green)
    Making everybody glad

    Near the foggy mouth of Bradon
    Nearly obscured from view
    The Boy still plays his fiddle
    And plays the pipes too

    He visits Blarney Castle
    And keens upon the stone
    He sings about the island
    And the people of his home

    (Little Boy Green)
    Won'cha stay a little while
    (Little Boy Green)
    Play the song of the Emerald Isle
    (Little Boy Green)
    You're such a gifted lad
    (Little Boy Green)
    Making everybody glad

    As the sun sets upon Dublin
    The boy bids his farewell
    He's played all his waking hours
    Enrapturing the spell

    But as the moon awakens
    And the boy says his goodbyes
    He knows that he'll be back again
    Next time the sun does rise

    (Little Boy Green)
    Won'cha stay a little while
    (Little Boy Green)
    Play the song of the Emerald Isle
    (Little Boy Green)
    You're such a gifted lad
    (Little Boy Green)
    Making everybody glad
  • Choking on Ash and blood
    I'll die alone covered in mud
    Falling apart so slowly
    Glass cuts so damn deep
    Falling apart so slowly

  • Slow, floating in the distance
    Don't you know, I feel encapsulated in your
    Glow, when you look at me in this dim lightning
    I won't lie it's kinda frightening
    I want to give up control

    She, is a wolf in sheep's clothing whom I
    Need, her outline just a golden
    Sheen, darling I see you approaching
    Touch me, make me feel emotions
    You're my favorite fantasy

  • Shrinking

    In the winter ever long
    So I shrank in stature
    Intra-verted, gone in months
    Fallen down between

    In the lack of luxury
    Or originality
    I deserted my resolve to court the ground

    By the thorny underwood
    There at last I understood
    To return from here would take another hand
    I was low enough to see
    In the spectral underneath
    Where in heaven's name or hell's I stand

    In the anger of the sun
    On the sky blue plaster
    I could watch my shadow wither
    Dying in between

    In the edge I tried to tread
    Neither blue nor red
    I suppose I'm predisposed to come around

    Then the light became distinct and strange
    I felt the balance rearrange
    Another presence saw me in its waves
    A length of time passed
    A summer storm amassed
    And nourished me back to vibrant cast

    By the status I forsook
    And the growth I undertook
    To return from there had taken all I am
    I'd been low enough to see
    In the artificial seams
    How the hand in mine defines me
    Visibly outlines me
    A bloom of transcendental harmony
  • Sunlight peaking through the blinds again
    Coffee in bed and an 8 am flight
    I miss waking up to a smiling face and a kiss
    Life felt a lot better when you spent the night

    I looked at pictures from our road trip again
    We looked so young and happy and free
    What I wouldn’t give to have those days back
    And have you right back next to me


    And if I say that I’m happier
    Does anything really change
    Smile brightly and keep my head up high
    While knowing things are not okay


    Sunlight peaking through the blinds again
    Coffee in bed and an 8 am flight
    I used to love waking up in your arms
    But now the morning is a lonely sight


    And if I say that I’m happier
    Does anything really change
    Smile brightly and keep my head up high
    While knowing things won’t ever be okay


    The sky feel like the wrong shade of blue
    Maybe it’s just a trick of the light
    But I miss staring up at it with you
    And without that it’ll never look right


    And if I say that I’m happier
    Does anything really change
    Smile brightly and keep my head up high
    While knowing things are not okay

    But I miss staring up at it with you
    And without that it’ll never look right
  • Petals falling to the ground
    The start of the stormy season
    A torrent without reason
    So much you that could drown

    Wandering waiting endlessly
    Is this the right direction
    Looking down at my reflection
    No thoughts just staring mindlessly

    A rose is a gift that is dying
    So why are you even still trying
    I thought it would be enough
    But staying here is so tough

    Wilting is just like quitting
    Can't go back to the beginning
    A rose is a gift that's dying
    It's not even worth trying

    Nothing lasts forever
    Our time together
    Like dying flowers
    And to you I bare my soul
    In the gift of a rose

    Plant a seed to give me hope
    The earth just dried and cracked
    There's no way of going back
    But it's on the envelope

    Love me or love me not
    The countdown is over now
    It's time to leave I'll take a bow
    It will soon be just forgot

    A rose is a gift that is dying
    So why are you even still trying
    I thought it would be enough
    But staying here is so tough

    Wilting is just like quitting
    Can't go back to the beginning
    A rose is a gift that's dying
    It's not even worth trying
  • Dilapidation
    Rising back up again
    Phoenix soaring
    Never learns his lesson
    Crashing down like a meteorite
    Bite the dust like a Deacon bassline
    My heart pulses outside my chest
    Desperate, self intoxicated
    I leave my rest

    I know you best
    I know you best
    Spot you out of a crowd like a chartreuse vest

    Blackened eyes see right through me
    Your fingertips leave me for dead
    Draw me in with your gravitation
    Then hang me with the words you said

    I know you best
    I know you best
    Spot you out of a crowd like a chartreuse vest

    Pick up my pieces

    I know you best
    I know you best
    Spot you out of a crowd like a chartreuse vest

    I feel the spark in the air
    As she plays with her hair
    And the spark in her eyes hits me

    Shining through darkness
    Calling out past this
    The life before this love is gone

  • I'll soon be off, adventure grand
    My spacesuit on, ticket in hand
    Two-hundred-eighty light-years off today

    Counting down from 10 to 1
    Goodbye to them, the moon and sun
    For soon I'm off, to my love far away

    Off through galaxies and endless stars
    Faster-than-light traveling into your arms

    85 parsecs to the pulsar
    And 85 parsecs to you
    There ain't no matter dark enough
    To tear our love in two

    Outside the window's like a dream
    Amazing sights that I have seen
    But nothing that could ever step to you

    Matter strange and novas bright
    Covered by multicolored light
    All this wonder just to cut right through

    Through wormholes and cutting through space-time
    Through nebulae and galactic rime

    42 parsecs to the pulsar
    And 42 parsecs to you
    There ain't no black hole strong enough
    To tear our love in two

    The quest for science is eternal
    But this one thing is true
    It's 42 parsecs to the Pulsar
    And 42 parsecs to you

    Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has activated the warp speed initiative. We are now entering warp speed. Please return your seats and hold onto your handlebars.
    Here we go!!!!

    The flashing star slowly closing in
    I'll soon see the love of my life again

    Just one more parsec to the pulsar
    And one more parsec to you
    There ain't no warp speed fast enough
    To tear our love in two

    Love may be a mystery
    But this one thing is true
    I'm closing in on the Pulsar
    And Darling, I love you

    Promote the best of our men
    And get us shipping our cargo again

    In an easy comet field
    Captain she hit, bent the outer shield
    Scratched up the ship paint real bad too
    Flush her down the crew loo

    Don't go mad and see the ship shrink
    Makes your head spin like a cheap drink
    Sitting in his soft lavish chair
    What a waste of good fresh air

    Why deal with a crew that's mutinous
    Waiting for a reason to rid of us
    The best defence is to act and soon
    Leave them on an icy moon

    With half of the command gone
    Maybe some of us can get something done
    Promote the best of our men
    And get us shipping our cargo again

    Why is it so hard to find a decent crew
    People you trust to have your back
    We need to load with people new
    And bring this cargo to trader Jack

    We need to load with people new
    And bring this cargo to trader Jack

    CHORUS
    It’s just a short trip to Bellatrix 9
    The Molluskoids will pay this time !
    Humanity, it rules the skies
    As true as the space whales fly

    VERSE
    The hyperdrive, it never works
    Sailors of the Artimus can't be hurt
    My lover waits on paradise
    ......... But Arcangetios, what about your wife?

    The galaxy is dark and full of terror
    The Artimus sees blood where others fear
    We take death and look it in the eye
    Except for the food - I'd rather go blind

    The emperor lights up all our lives
    Pay us more or we'll go on strike (just like 1 guy yelling)
    The Psyonics may read our minds
    But we'll read theirs with quantum knives!

    The solar winds will carry us home
    Slower please - I'm ignoring the phone
    The fungus people just want to trade
    We'll defloriant them the human way

    CHORUS
    It’s just a short trip to Bellatrix 9
    The Molluskoids will pay this time !
    Humanity, it rules the skies
    As true as the space whales fly

    VERSE
    Soon we'll be at Taurus 9
    All that sand makes my mouth go dry
    Captain’s gonna send me to Bankman’s Green
    That coward won't even step in the canteen

    The slug people make my blood boil
    Salt em up and cook em in oil
    The commissioner has had enough
    ...... Report us then if you’re so tough !

    The people of earth live in fear
    The Artimus will bravely steer
    The Empire will never die
    As long as the Artimus survives

    CHORUS
    Just a short trip to Bellatrix 9
    The Molluskoids will pay this time !
    Humanity, it rules the skies
    As true as the space whales fly
  • Verse 1

    Leaving on our starship
    It will take us far
    Above the skies we'll be
    Like floating on the seas

    Stars pass like ocean spray
    As we row along
    The rigging will be tied
    We'll fly our flag up high

    Chorus

    We are the pioneers
    On a galactic journey
    Far beyond, au-dessus du monde
    Finding riches and glory

    Yo ho yo ho
    Only one way to go
    Un deux un deux
    La lune est dans nos yeux

    Vers 2

    Nos coeurs sont allumés
    Il est temps de partir
    Si vous voulez y aller
    Nous atteindrons le ciel

    Errons-nous entre les étoiles
    À une grande distance
    Une partie du voyage
    C'est l'heure des braves

    Chorus

    Verse 3

    Turning of the solar sail
    Like a compass needle
    Navigate the void
    Leave behind our spheroid

    There's no turning back now
    Onwards is the game
    Gravity pulling away
    We will get there someday
  • The sky outside is empty, oh
    Inside this can the air does blow
    No light out there; it's mighty cold
    The light and heat is all our own

    We're all set and flying fair
    we have light and we have air
    But no joy would be as sweet
    As fertile soil beneath my feet



    All around is endless night
    We're headed for a point of light
    And that light has a planet near
    The water's fresh and clean and clear



    There's stars and pulsars, nebulae
    And all kind of galaxies
    All are beauties never seen
    places life has never been



    We left our homes lightyears behind
    To take on this one-way ride
    And hope to make a better life
    And end this flight before we die



    We're all set and flying fair
    we have light and we have air
    But no joy would be as sweet
    As fertile soil beneath my feet

    There's stars and pulsars, nebulae
    And all kind of galaxies
    All are beauties never seen
    places life has never been

  • Come all ye children and gather round to me
    I’ll tell you a story of a pirate - not at sea
    But flying through the cosmos with her intrepid crew
    Harbingers of death, sporting grim reaper tattoos

    Her name is Amethyst Valentine, feared throughout the stars
    A beautiful young women with a face that’s battle scarred
    So listen to this story, and remember what I say
    If you see a girl with the mark of the reaper, be sure to stay away

    Oh my oh my, did I hear my name? Oh, you boys are so flattering. You don’t mind if I tell my own story, do you? I didn’t think you would.

    Let me take you back 20 years ago
    You’ll see a young girl driven from her home
    Parents who died young left me with nothing
    All I had left was a mind most cunning

    I became a thief and mastered the trade
    Swindling thousands despite my young age
    Saving up my money to buy my own ship
    Named Reaper’s Revenge by Captain Amethyst

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Roams the seven galaxies
    Stealing gold and saving women
    She lives the pirate fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    No one could have more enemies
    But they know she’s untouchable
    Or else there will be casualties

    I set sail, my eyes on treasure and gold
    And filled our hull with more than we could hold
    I broke the hearts and skulls of many men
    Until I locked eyes on Alex Raven

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Roams the seven galaxies
    Stealing gold and saving women
    She lives the pirate fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    No one could have more enemies
    But they know she’s untouchable
    Or else there will be casualties

    Raven and I fell in love with passion
    Ignoring red flags to fuel attraction
    I thought all was well inside of my head
    Feelings took over and later we wed

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Roams the seven galaxies
    Stealing gold and saving women
    She lives the pirate fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    No one could have more enemies
    But they know she’s untouchable
    Or else there will be casualties

    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Loneliest in the galaxies
    Her husband likes other women
    And lives his cheating fantasy
    Captain Amethyst Valentine
    Her husband now her enemy
    He better stay on Terra-6
    Or else there will be casualties
  • Space! Time! Black! Hole in space!

    I'd been working all day flying through the milky sea
    Yo ho ho! She'd been working all day
    The S S Startrapper ain't a pretty place to be
    Yo ho ho! Then they took her away

    Now I fear for my life lest I fall in this black hole
    Now she fears for her life lest she gets crushed into dust
    I have to be good or I'll get thrown in the black hole
    Space penal life is not good for her soul

    Oh I may never leave here by threat of laser gun
    I'll orbit round this black hole 'til my sentence is done
    Many years over lightyears distant stars over suns
    I'll orbit round this black hole 'til my sentence is done

    Well I've been countin' the days and rogue planets passin' by
    Seein' sunless worlds they're just passin' me by
    Yes I've been countin' the days and rogue planets passin' by
    Countin' 'til the day we can kiss this ship goodbye
    Countin' 'til the day we can kiss this ship goodbye

  • As a young boy I gazed at the sky
    Dreamed the dream of an adventurer's life
    Was stuck in a world of toil and strife
    Till that man came round with an offer
    An offer
    An offer
    Till that man came round with an offer

    The engines made a horrible roar
    Pushed my stomach right through the floor
    Till I couldn't tell down from up no more
    And I was off on an adventure
    Adventure
    Adventure
    Off on an adventure

    The journeys long space is cold
    It's damn lonely but I'm never alone
    An untold millions of miles from home
    wish I'd never left her
    Left her
    Left her
    I wished I'd never left her

    The pay seems good when you grew up poor
    But you spend it all in the company store
    Still better than dying in the horse head wars
    Either way the rich get richer
    Get richer
    Get richer
    Either way the rich get richer

    Grand dad died of coal black lungs
    A collapse took my father when I was young
    Now I'm pulling the ore off a long dead sun
    I feel I'm cursed to die here
    Die here
    Die here
    I feel I'm cursed to die here

    There's a star burning out in the night
    Now barely a twinkle in my eye
    If I don't make it back alive
    Send my ashes toward her
    Toward her
    Toward her
    Send my ashes toward her.
  • Only some of us have seen a sea, but all of us know how to sail
    None of us have been at sea, but all of us know of the tale

    As far as one can see, there is the sea, endless as space
    As much as one could wish, an endless field of water
    And then there is a single star, that shines its light on countless waves
    A billion golden reflections, brighter than any cluster

    Only some of us were pioneers, but all of us sail the unknown
    Most of us were born and raised here, but all of us call this ship home

    Our thousand year long journey began only sixty years ago
    And yet our thousand year long journey will reach its end nine hundred years from now
    We’re sailing within a sea of endless stars, blurred by the speed of our flight
    We’re shining brighter than any of those stars, our beautiful light

    Nearly none of us witnessed the start, of our journey beyond the stars
    None of us will see the end, and yet we sail forward my friend

    As much as we might dread the day we die, our hope outshines it all
    As much as it might hurt to say goodbye, our memories will outshine it all
    In the end, there'll be a shining star, a planet and many seas to sail
    In the end, we'll reach another shore, and we will tell our children this tale

    Only some of us have seen a sea, but all of us know how to sail
    None of us have been at sea, but all of us know of the tale

    [solo]

    None of us will see a sea, but all of us know how to sail
    None of us will reach this sea, but all of us know of the tale
  • Chorus 1:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a beaut'
    Her paint's all scuffed up and she's got no tractor beam to boot
    Her cargo doors, they creak like hell, the escape pods won't go
    But she's the fastest ship we've got, let's hope she brings us home!

    Verse 1:
    Three more days that we've got left
    'Til all our fuel's gone
    It's brought us far, but not there yet
    A while before we're done
    The radio, it doesn't work
    it's one of Sera's quirks
    Supplies are running low as well
    Three days until we burn

    Pre-chorus:
    We thought that we we'd be fine at first
    And now we pay the price
    We should've brought reserves with us
    We should've checked her twice
    Soon we will all burn alive!
    As Sera falls apart
    But until that time we'll sing
    Of Sera-6 from Mars!

    Chorus 2:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a belle
    Her doors don't open half the time, and they don't shut as well
    The engine tends to stutter and the headlights just turn off
    But she's the fastest ship we've got, let's hope she brings us home!

    "I just cannae dae it cap'in, I'm geein 'er aw she's got. It's the dilithium crystals...they're fucked!"

    Verse 2:
    Two more days that we've still got
    'Til the engines give out
    We hoped they'd find us, they did not
    We're still floating all about
    The lights have now shut off for good
    We're living in the dark
    And Roger's eating all our food (Goddamnit, Roger!)
    Two days 'til we depart

    Pre-chorus:
    We thought that we'd be fine at first
    And now we pay the price
    We should've brought reserves with us
    We should've checked her twice
    Soon we will all burn alive!
    As Sera falls apart
    But until that time comes we'll sing
    Of Sera-6 from Mars!

    Chorus:
    Chorus 2:
    She's not the ship most folks would choose
    But Sera, she's a sight
    Her air-lock doesn't function, neither does the air supply
    The cockpit chairs are crooked, control panel's painted on
    But she's the fastest ship we've got, let's hope she brings us home!

    Verse 3:
    One more day, that's all we have
    Morale is wearing thin
    We've got no food or water left
    We're thinking this is it
    Roger's puking out his guts,'cause karma is a bitch (Cue "Goddamnit Roger")
    We're doomed to die out in this ditch
    One day until we're dead

    Pre-chorus:
    We thought that we we'd be fine at first
    And now we pay the price
    We should've brought reserves with us
    We should've checked her twice

    What are we gonna do?

    And that's the tale of Sera-6, the fastest ship we've known."
  • We’ve travelled so far and we’re almost here
    we are the crew of the spaceship Frontier
    The treasure is rich and they say men disappear
    we are the crew of the spaceship Frontier

    But we are brave and not easily scared
    if only we knew that no one would be spared

    The first to go was Timothy Pratt
    he was a wee boy and a klutz at that
    a mistake was made and the airlock soon broke
    he flew out into space ‘t was the end of that bloke

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were ten
    but so close to our goal, we said, we are brave men

    The next to go was Gregory West
    The body of Pratt attracted an unwanted guest
    While fixing the airlock he felt something creep
    But before he could act, a wound was cut deep

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were nine
    but so close to our goal, we said, this is just fine

    The next to go was Robertus Klipp
    When lights started to flicker in the hall of the ship
    He went to check and thought nothing was wrong
    but he died horribly, oh the monster was strong

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were eight
    but so close to our goal, we challenged our fate

    The next to go was Mauritius Martz
    The alarm was raised and feared filled our hearts
    But amidst the chaos, he fled and hid
    when he was found, his throat was slit

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were seven
    but so close to our goal, we would risk heaven

    The next to go were the two brothers Dunn
    They entered a room but with a lack of oxygen
    The door wouldn’t budge and they gasped for air
    Scratching to survive, but alas, life was unfair.

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were five
    but so close to our goal, we wanted to survive

    The next to go were the captain and his two mates,
    Through the ruckus a mutiny sealed their faiths
    We fought against ourselves blaming each other
    Shooting our guns they became cannon fodder

    Our crew counted eleven, but now there were two,
    but so close to our goal, we had to make it through

    The last to go was my mate from Wales
    and I told him “Dead men tell no tales”
    When he saw my intent to kill he knew
    He spoke his last words: “The monster was you”

    The crew counted eleven and now there was one,
    I reached the goal, and the treasure was won.

    I travelled so far and I’m finally here
    They were the crew of the spaceship Frontier
    The treasure is mine and now I’ll disappear
    they were the crew of the spaceship Frontier
  • On those nights he couldn't sleep I laid by his side
    He opened up his soul to me and cried as he tried
    To allow the thoughts that kept him up see the outside
    And I could tell that it scared him to death to try to stay alive

    My husband was
    Not the expressive type
    He didn't ask for much
    One night he just
    Pulled me aside

    He asked
    "Write me the saddest song
    One that will give me a moment's reprieve
    Cast aside what's right or wrong
    One that will give me a moment to breathe
    I know that I'm dying
    The wall's closing in
    I think only you could absolve who I've been
    Won't you write me the saddest song?
    My love?"

    On those days where the pain was too thick to think
    When he could barely stand to throw up in the sink
    When the painkillers killed everything but his pain
    And I could tell the thoughts running through his brain

    My husband was
    Not the expressive type
    He didn't ask for much
    One night he just
    Pulled me aside

    He begged
    "Write me the saddest song
    One that will wipe your memories clean
    Cast aside what's right or wrong
    One that forgets me just like I'm a dream
    I feel more at peace now
    I feel much at ease
    I'm glad that it's over and i get to sleep
    Won't you write me the saddest song?
    Just for me?
    Pretty please?"

    "Won't you write me the saddest song?
    Baby?"
  • I don't know how I got here but I want out
    Trapped in a mineshaft this house swallows whole
    You use my name but only cause I want you too
    It means nothing but a joke to you

    And even when I feel fine
    Theres something at the back of my mind
    The body you see isn't really me
    Caricature in forced contact with reality

    This will change
    This can't change
    At all

    I am a clay figure never kilned
    A body but empty of a soul
    And I don't remember the last time
    I ever felt whole

    And even when I feel fine
    Theres something at the back of my mind
    The body you see isn't really me
    Caricature in forced contact with reality

    This will change
    This can't change
    At all

    Cry on the bathroom floor
    When I see my face in the mirror
    I can't stand to the way he looks
    I'd rather it just disappear

    Thinking about medicne from vanatu
    I'll run away (hold) if I have too
    Can't take the pressure indecision mounting
    This will be my eulogy if I'll don't decide something
    Flipping through a spiral notebooks of names
    Fantasies that I'll might get away from this place
    But I'll probably die in this lonely home
    Taking the truths with me will you even know

    The facade won't hold
  • This breath, it’s pain
    Cut across my tender wound
    Every tick, cold and grey
    Towards the end of you
    Far apart, now we’re close
    Sipping bitter remains
    Fumes, smoke, the green of home,
    One blink, you’re ripped away

    My tears fall, drops of blood
    Fallen down upon the floor,
    You feared you’d linger,
    One moment, and gone

    You’ll always be my home

    Can I have one more day?
    A piece to keep inside
    When you were over the ditch,
    I couldn’t give you the time
    Running through childhood memories,
    Can’t abet regret
    You were meant to live
    But I let our time fall through the sieve
  • It was seven in the morning when the letter came
    I still remember the look on his face when I told him
    We both called in sick into work that day
    We stayed in bed and just hugged all morning

    My daughter Jane sent me a letter today
    I brewed up some tea and went to read it
    I tried and tried, but I just couldn't, somehow,
    I put it down and started to cry

    I went to take the bins out
    I must have got lost
    It's cold out ....
    I'm not quite sure where I am

    A lady saw me and came for me
    She told me she was scared
    She took me to some place and laid me down
    I'm not sure ... where I am

    There's a lady who came here this evening
    She was so nice to me, she gave me biscuits and some goldenrod tea
    Said something about a spot where it grows
    Her mother taught her once, long ago

    I looked at her and asked "How is Jane"
    She didn't answer, she just turned away
    -----
    You are my sunshine,my only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    you'll never know, dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away
  • I know there’s something wrong with me
    Don’t know exactly what it could be

    Cuz I call
    but no one ever gets back to me
    And I fall
    But no one helps me to my feet

    I’m just waiting for the end
    For Death to come and take my hand

    Cuz I wait
    but I’ve been waiting so damn long
    And I pray
    Hoping for a word from God
    Bridge:
    No one cares, about me
    No one cares, it’s plain to see
    I’m lying here, waiting for, the death of me
  • [Verse 1]
    I don't wanna be alone,
    I wanna share the weight of the world
    It crushes and it pulls tight
    In the wee hours of the night
    I don't know what to do
    I wish you were here with me
    And I was here with you

    [Pre-chorus]
    A hand to hold
    An ear for secrets told
    A laugh for me
    And for nobody else

    [Chorus]
    Table for one x 4

    [Verse 2]
    Cold sheets, a restless sleep
    I even dream in solitude
    With all the colour gone
    No reaching out, no searching warmth
    Destined to be alone
    It seems

    [Pre-chorus]
    A hand to hold
    An ear for secrets told
    A laugh for me
    And for nobody else

    [Chorus]
    Table for one x 4

    [Bridge]
    Brought this on myself
    Faced up to that cold truth
    Of fortunes not being changed
    I haven't seen that proof
    Until then I bide my time

    [Chorus]
    Table for one x 4
  • Belong

    Verse 1:
    Roll out the map,
    A faded red carpet,
    Leading us to,
    Where you came from.

    You’re there beside me,
    Your smile so warming.
    Promise we’ll get,
    Where you belong.

    The flowing fields,
    The ice-tipped spires,
    You’ve always talked,
    Of where you were born.

    The rapid streams,
    The blue-jay choirs,
    You make it seem,
    I’ve been there before.

    Verse 2
    Your hand in mine,
    We take these strides,
    Just like the day,
    We walked the aisle.

    I said it then,
    I’ll say it now,
    I’ll never break,
    This sacred vow.

    Prechorus
    I will always take you back.
    But I can’t bear to be alone.

    Cause as hard as it is to lose you,
    It’s harder now to let you go.

    Chorus
    I don’t know why you told me,
    That this is where you’ll stay.
    And I can’t help but weep,
    When you say I’ll be ok.

    Why’d you choose,
    Somewhere far away.
    Where I can’t visit everyday.

    Verse 3
    I’ve steeled myself,
    So many times.
    But I still can’t,
    Leave you behind.

    You smile my way,
    Say don’t you frown.
    But I still feel,
    I’ve let you down.

    I’ll try once more,
    To brave this trip.
    But we’ll still be,
    Stuck at the hip.

    It always hurts,
    When at the end,
    I wave goodbye,
    To my best friend.

    Prechorus
    I will always take you back.
    But I can’t bear to be alone.

    Cause as hard as it is to lose you,
    It’s harder now to let you go.

    Chorus 2
    You were meant to grow with me,
    And live through all our days.
    And I can’t help but weep,
    When you say I’ll be ok.

    Why’d you choose,
    Somewhere far away.

    Chorus 3
    You were meant to grow with me,
    But in these fields you’ll stay.
    I’ll scatter you, and while I weep,
    I know I’ll be ok.

    I know why you chose,
    This place so far away.
    Where I can’t visit every day
  • Why you chasing fireflies when you know that they can fly
    Why you chasing lightning strikes when you know they don't strike twice
    Spend your life in day dreams of broken things that no one ever sees.
    Ain't you tired, ain't you tired of losing
    You know you can't solve your problems by blaming someone else
    You can never fix them until you fix your self
    and you'll never catch a cloud with both feet on the ground.
    Ain't you tired, ain't you tired of losing.

    Walk around wearing a mask
    of a perfect person to portray
    Forget the past
    the whole world is a stage
    Never stopped to take the time
    to figure your self out
    Aint you tired
    Aint you tired of losing

    You're losing
    When you tell yourself that everything will be alright
    You're losing
    when you have those thoughts that keep you up all night
    You're losing
    when you remember what you did in the past
    You're losing
    when you're kicking your own ass

    You're losing
    When you tell yourself that everything will be alright
    You're losing
    when you have those thoughts that keep you up all night
    You're losing
    when you remember what you did in the past
    You're losing
    when you're kicking your own ass

    Ain't you tired
    Ain't you tired of losing

    Ain't you tired
    Ain't you tired of losing

    Ain't you tired
    Ain't you tired of losing

    you're losing you're losing
    and you did it to yourself
  • They tell me
    That you’re gone, but
    I still hear your voice
    In all the places we used to haunt

    By the river
    We’d watch the rain
    Alone together
    Reading poems that we saved

    We always used to say
    We’d always have each other
    And no one can stop us now

    Sit in the dark
    Explain to myself
    I should move on
    I should move out

    But the crows
    You used to feed
    Still leave gifts at our door

    We always used to say
    We’d always have each other
    And no one can stop us now

    [solo]

    Couldn’t you
    At least have let me
    Say goodbye?

    We always used to say
    We’d always have each other
    And no one can stop us now

    I guess at least you don’t hurt anymore
    and no one can stop you now
  • [I: Reflection]
    Brothers in arms, we
    The bloodied blade and fang
    Our tale etched in scars
    Upon our flesh

    Your coat, stained
    Your back, bent
    Your eyes, clouded
    Your soul, bright

    As Geri, cherished of Odin
    The brave, the wise, the strong
    As Hati, who hunts the moon
    Forever 'cross the night

    [II: Reminiscence]
    The boundless spirit of youth
    Worn achingly away
    Leaps and bounds and lolling tongue
    As fleeting as yesterday

    Hours spent but never lost
    War-games played to teach
    The sun that never seemed to set
    A bond beyond all reach

    [III: Regret]
    All too soon, it came
    The siren song of war
    The pounding drums, a call
    We answered with fierce joy

    No sword-brother beside
    Your teeth and claws my shield
    Our lives exchanged a dozen times
    Upon our battlefields

    [IV: Revelation]
    Two lives, twined as one
    By Nornir decree bound
    But deep in the Well of Fate
    Skuld cast her dark bones

    Surrounded by moans of the fallen
    I saw your spirit break
    A seed of pain sown deep
    Betrayed by fickle Fate

    [V: Release]
    The killing blow came not in steel
    But foam upon your fangs
    The madness festered deep within
    And stole away your mind

    When you no longer knew my face
    And raged against my touch
    With weeping heart I bared my blade
    And sent you to your rest

    No deeper bond there ever was
    No Nornir, just and fair
    No joyous end for man and wolf
    Just tears upon your cairn
  • I read the news off my cracked phone screen
    The light yawned from the edges
    Screaming what I’m dreading
    I spent my last change on the taxi
    The leather seats felt like her
    On some party girl’s sofa


    I am ready for a brand new day
    That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
    I am a collage of fragmented parts
    Oh to be
    So riddled with scars


    I smelt her scent strapped to my chest
    Her perfume on the seatbelt
    The last sensation I felt
    Exploring daydreams I do best
    Locked under the covers
    Never to recover


    I am ready for a brand new day
    That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
    I am a collage of fragmented parts
    Oh to be
    Is not the way to be


    I told her not to drive but I left her outside
    I never knew she was one to be so full of pride
    If I could have seen the girl from our prom limousine
    Would be the centre of this tormented, mangled crash scene
    I’d have offered her a seat in that hearse-black taxi
    No length of detour would be so tragic for me
    To save the misery of her dramatic entry
    From her steering wheel through the cab’s shattered windscreen


    I am ready for a brand new day
    That’s what this mourning coaxed me to say
    Too busy with my mind on her memory
    Oh to see
    What's happened to me
  • There's so much apathy in the circles beneath your eyes
    Omnipresent like a fucking god you don’t believe in

    Help me not let you drown
    My nightmares have found ground
    There's no mistaking you're no longer scared to die
    Helplessness bleeds on through
    If I were in your shoes
    I couldn't keep trying
    So I'm sorry to ask it of you

    Who you were is already buried six feet under
    And when you scream I'm not alright

    Was it better when you called out my lies?
    Keeping you on drugs to keep you alive
    It's making you survive without existing
    And when you can't cry I'm not alright

    I've always let you down
    My nightmares have found ground
    In realizing I'm the only thing keeping you here
    Despair crippled your youth
    What can I say or do
    To shut off the trauma
    That I can't stop from haunting you
    If I were in your shoes
    I couldn't keep trying
    So I'm sorry to ask it of you

    I keep letting you down 3x
    I kept letting you down
    I can't let you drown 3x
    But I can't stop you now
    How could they leave you alone
    I can't leave u alone
    How could I leave you alone
    I won't leave you alone
    I'll do whatever it takes
    To keep your suicide away


    I've always let you down
    My nightmares have found ground
    There's no mistaking you're no longer scared to die
  • If the day dawns while the night falls,
    The light of the moon plays through each ray
    As I hear dreams, wish the pain clean
    The colours play, racing through my mind
    A deeper sorrow, a happiness’ borrowed
    Call through time to watch the past bleed
    Sending heroes, to the battles glow
    A fighter lost to the raging war
    Internal demons, play with masks of feelings
    See the smile dance on my face
    Another villain, pulls the strings of freedom
    The chance I’m given I can’t escape
    How to feel now, I’m lost in somehow
    Does the water flow through fire or does it charge
    When the time comes, break down these reasons
    I’m told i’m pretty, but the mirrors all lie to me
    What I see through, the lens that built you
    The years the days the moments pass
    On wings of angels, the touch of rainbows
    As the reapers finger points down at me
    I lost myself in, a wasted day dream
    The gift of life just to return
    Some more to follow, a change i’ve borrowed
    The fight I have i’ll never win
    You think you see me, the smile receding
    The tears in my eyes passed off as joy
    How I felt here, I lost myself with
    Every scar that touched my skin
    The bruises run deep, blushed white through history (Hisstree)
    The walk I took right to the edge.

    Into the darkness fading
    My light is jaded
    Take me here
    Take me now
    Take my soul

    Sadness rings true
    So what can we do
    Take me here
    Take me now
    Take my soul

    Forgotten places
    Missing faces
    Strike me down
    Strike me here
    Save my soul

    A hope forgotten
    This life is rotten
    Through the core
    To the centre
    All of me

    Dancing to see
    Like I pretend to be
    Am I free
    Am I lost
    Am I numb

    Emotions lifting
    My compass drifting
    Call to you
    Call to me
    Call out as one

    My life keeps drifting


    All the hope, all the dreams
    Washed away almost instantly

    See the rivers forming
    From Streams running slowly

    This is all that I have
    This is all that’ll I’ll ever be

    No one can hear me
    No one is listening
    The truth of my life is written in the blood of my enemies
    Thunderbolt and lighting,
    Very Very Frightening
    To Me, To Me

    I lost everything, but fought to build myself back again
    Found the love that I could not see glistening
    The darkness holds us and blinds us all
    We all struggle, just before a painful fall
    We are the heroes to our own stories
    We can’t see the struggles of others in our own destiny

    Keep on Fighting
    Keep on shining
    Help those you see in yourself
    See your path and walk over the edge

    Anyway the wind blows…..
  • Janey, my little puppy, you're getting older, everyday
    And my Janey, you're always with me, always beside me, everyway
    Little Janey, your eyes grew foggy, can you still see me, all the way
    Janey, jitt'ry and jumpy, always so sleepy, sleep away

    18 years is a long time
    But never long enough
    Can I accept that you're gone?
    Am I not that tough?

    Janey, my little puppy, you're not so little, anymore
    Oh my Janey, can you still hear me, when you go walking, out the door
    Oh and Janey, do you get lonely, even though we, are here for you
    Little Janey, do you feel happy, when we're all smiling, with you too

    But when I dream about you
    Does it mean you're still there
    Or am I just in denial
    Does anyone even care

    Oh Janey, do you remember me, or did your memories, fade away
    Janey, rainbow bridge calls you, and though you're small you're, big today
    And little Janey, you're always with me, inside that box there, where you stay
    Please Janey, never forget me, up in the great farm, fly away

    And though I'm all grown up now
    The memories remain
    Through the good times and the bad
    You were my little Jane

    "A Box of Memories"

    This story about Life and death
    Someone loved you, he had strength
    Written to a lovely four year old
    Granddaughter, she just didn't know
    Cousin Karen she tried to explain;
    Losing Larry and yet diminish the pain.
    Erica at 4 had remembered
    Everything she saw; had to stay centered.

    Grandpa and Grandma lived 2 hours away;
    Came to see Erica every 3 Saturdays.
    They's lay on the carpet to play and pretend
    With Erica's dolls, the time they had spent
    Build with blocks, color, make collages
    Play action figures and do artsy projects
    In warm weather, they'd go play outside
    Chalked driveway / the swingset / filled with love and pride

    Grandpa came from the doctor
    With a case they could not cure.
    40 years of smoking cigarettes
    Terminal - they were sure.
    The box of memories
    It starts to be filled
    It comes crashing all down
    And can't be rebuilt

    Lung cancer determined,
    He could no longer work.
    Trouble walking and back pain,
    Smiling through the hurt
    Larry no longer traded
    Gold and silver pure
    Held on till he made it
    His family safe and secure

    And then Grandpa died, and to the funeral they came
    To talk about his life, and the man he became
    Loving family beside him/ Larry's wife and 3 grown sons.
    Detailed the wonderful things that he had done.
    Erica in the limo / cousins Daniella and Karen
    A box at the gravesite / people crying, depairing

    Erica asked Karen, "what's in the box?"
    She said a box full of memories.
    Sparing Erica the shock
    A "box full of memories."
    Contains the wondrous things
    We want to remember
    Even if it's heartache it brings

    The box had in it, my father,
    Right after we were last together
    We met for dinner by the water
    A meal to last forever
    At a restaurant by the water
    Sailed by the beautiful boats
    We talked about optimistic times
    All of our dreams and our hopes

    Then we went for heavenly ice cream
    Erica got peanut butter crunch
    Grandpa got chocolate chip
    With the only child of his son
    We will always adore Grandpa.
    And remember life's happy parts.
    Stored in a "box full of memories,"
    While Grandpa lives on in our hearts.
  • Stop me if you've heard this one before
    I'll leave the door cracked for the ghosts
    I hope they come back around again
    I love you but I love them the most
    Pretending to sleep all night
    But you can't get the breathing right
    Too deep in the shallows now
    To open your bloodshot eyes


    Come back down and join the party
    Summer’s near and the sky is clear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please


    Jetting home on a haunted plane
    The pilot is a nervous wreck
    Taxi Driver on the in flight film
    Stupid pillow on your stupid neck
    You said the mood wasn't suiting you
    And the food was polluting you
    Too low in the sky right now
    Let me know if this is old news


    Come back down and join the party
    Summer’s near and the sky is clear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please


    A phantom whispering sweet nothings
    Words wrap around my arms
    Wake me with a jolt from dreaming
    Always forget to set alarms

    Waiting, hanging out around this place
    No real reason to of course
    Stupid look on your stupid face
    Some idiom about water and a horse.


    Come back down and join the party
    Summer’s near and the sky is clear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please

    Come back down and join the party
    No one here can smell your fear
    Come back down and join the party
    Come back down and join the party please

    Join the party
    Join the party
    Join the party
    Join the party please

    VERSE
    Did you ever see
    Standing at the pavement's edge
    Fingers on brick
    hands on a wall too thick

    Did you ever hear
    the sound of my tears
    I didn't hear it either
    my tears, oh I know they can't be shown

    PRECHORUS
    I don't know
    I can't explain
    A lingering pain in my head

    CHORUS
    [Background: “Ever, Forever and Ever”]

    If I couldn't love you
    I wouldn't love at all
    The taste of undaring in the air
    weak knees, a heart in a cage

    PREVERSE
    Your truest one of all
    You can't have forever

    VERSE
    A fire wells up and dies down
    I'm the King of the World
    in my story untold
    we unleashed the wolf
    the guard's at the gates were sleeping
    another day
    another shot
    another nation weeping

    PRECHORUS
    I don't know
    I can't explain
    A lingering pain in my head

    CHORUS
    If I couldn't love you
    I wouldn't love at all
    The taste of undaring in the air
    weak knees, a heart in a cage

    It's a harsh truth
    The most true one of all :
    You can't have forever
    No, you can’t have forever

    BRIDGE
    Fragments of my imagination
    pieces of my self-esteem, confidence
    spreading and grazing
    Grazing

    CHORUS
    If I couldn't love you
    I wouldn't love at all
    Weak knees, and a heart in a cage
    We both know - you can't have forever

    You can't have forever
    You can't have forever
    You can't have forever
    You can't have forever

  • I went searching for answers,
    At the shore of the sea
    All I found was the wreakage,
    Of my pain and dreams
    I couldn't believe that it happened
    And drifted back home to me

    And as I stared into the abyss
    It stared back with a wave
    I had no time to escape
    I had no time to leave

    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    Weighed down, I'll stay down
    (Underneath the deep blue sea)
    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    I'm drowned at sea


    I don't know why
    the ocean chose my island
    I don't know how
    I'll ever escape

    Sometime soon,
    Somewhere far
    I'll find my way out
    I'll find my way home

    Save me, erase me

    Weighed down, I'll stay down
    (Underneath the deep blue sea)
    Save me, erase me
    (The wave will wash over me)
    I'm drowned at sea
  • He rows,
    He moans,
    Souls call but he won’t hear.

    The flow,
    Is slow,
    But still he has to steer.

    They call,
    They crawl,
    Arms slash against the oar.

    He stares,
    He glares,
    Their fates sealed for wanting more.

    The poor march, across the land,
    Torches waving, back and forth,
    Begs, pleads, to let him cross,
    Ferryman, holds his ground.

    Holds a smirk, that stretches wide,
    Briefcase shine, like a black sun.
    Smirk slips, from his grasp,
    Ferryman, holds his ground.

    Interlude (2:52-3:07)
    Can’t bear to part,
    With one gold coin.

    To The Ferryman.

    Verse 2 (3:07-3:40)
    Hoard your wealth, have a laugh.
    Watch as angels, burn your cash.
    Suit and tie, won’t do much.
    When you need, to catch a boat.


    Chorus (3:40-4:22)

    The void is so beautiful
    Hold on to it like it holds you
    A different siren song
    That chills the heat inside you
    It's easier to hold
    Onto the still nothingness
    When you have someone
    Someone else to float with

    What's for you won't go by you
    That's what all the devils say
    And I can no longer deny you

    (What's for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (Torn from me)
    Warm hands, cold touch
    (No longer for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (What's for me)

    Come out to play
    Freeze your heart
    And walk away
    There is comfort
    In not healing
    You cannot hurt
    The unfeeling
    But it's easier to hold on
    When there's someone to float with

    {2:16]
    What's for you won't go by you
    That's what all the devils say
    And I can no longer deny you
    Are to whom the devils pray

    Warm hands, cold touch
    (What's for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (Torn from me)
    Warm hands, cold touch
    (No longer for me)
    Warm hands, cold heart
    (What's for me)

    What's for me
    Torn from me
    What's for me
    No longer for me
  • I should've known before
    you pulled the rug
    from underneath my feet
    It's my mistake,
    not thinking straight
    Tell me, are you pleased?

    Fake-out, fade out
    Why don't you go ahead
    and tell another tragedy?
    Make-up, it's made up
    'Cause I'm sure, given time,
    I'll hear it gladly
    I'll seek you madly
    I'll need you badly
    I'll need you badly

    They'll say "I told you so”
    Been here before,
    I guess I have a type
    Another round,
    lost, then found
    I guess that's what I like

    Grand conte. Je suis toujours dedans. Je te veux mais penses-tu que tu pourrais le faire avec moins de mises à jour créatives s’il te plaît.

    Fake-out, fade out
    Why don't you go ahead
    and tell another tragedy?
    Make-up, it's made up
    'Cause I'm sure, given time,
    I'll hear it gladly
    I'll seek you madly
    I'll need you badly
    I'll need you badly

    I guess that I signed up for this (x7)
    I guess I fucking love
    the way you tell it to me straight
    Right?

    Fake-out, fade out
    Why don't you go ahead
    and tell another tragedy?
    Make-up, it's made up
    'Cause I'm sure, given time,
    I'll hear it gladly
    I'll seek you madly
    I'll need you badly
    I'll need you badly

    And coarse whispers
    You take my breath away
    Leave me delirious
    Open up to
    Love in tight spaces
    Let's fall between those spaces
    Where the light dares to peek


    A thank you and a please
    To give is to receive
    Your special brand of love
    It fits me like a glove
    Twist, bend and understand
    I was led there by your hand
    Your special brand of love
    Yeah, it fits me like a glove


    Vowed and locked
    As we interweave
    Push me under your thumb
    Leave me undone
    Open up to
    Love in tight spaces
    Lets crawl into those spaces
    Show me all your techniques


    A thank you and a please
    To give is to receive
    Your special brand of love
    It fits me like a glove
    Twist, bend and understand
    I was led there by your hand
    Your special brand of love
    Yeah, it fits me like a glove


    Love in tight spaces
    Love in tight spaces

  • The answer in your twit face
    Nothing found in my space
    the question, Google quick
    Think for yourself

    Step outside your door and sign out
    Remember to draw your name
    Take a photo of Rorschachs face
    Tell your handler your plans today

    You want to be free to breathe it in
    Take off your muzzle and let death in
    For liberty
    Let Mr Darwin take the wheel

    Youre shaking mannaquins
    Cant understand why they follow rules
    They listen to Bill Nye, show guy
    Think for yourrself

    around the milkshake bar
    Drinking activated zinc and almond smoothies
    Exposing the webs of lurid lies
    On the latest brother B1G

    You want to be free to breathe it in
    Take off your muzzle and let death in
    For liberty
    Let Mr Darwin take the wheel

    Some may die because you sneeze
    way more cool than follow the rules
    the weak will croak as you roam free, baby
    Fend for yourself


  • Love Isn't His Game by April Wine
    --------------------
    (*a powerhour song completed in only 2 days!)



    She was a Rogue,
    He talked all day,
    Would you ever imagine it ends that way?

    Her friends were all dope,
    His were all lame,
    Love isn’t his game.

    She gave him a chance,
    He begged her for subs,
    But why would she hang out with scrubs?
    His Minecraft was stacked,
    But her friends had a laugh
    They had a better game to play


    Come join her MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    Come watch his videos,
    And laugh at all his snappy jokes

    Come join her MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    Don’t share his videos,
    Love isn’t his game


    Two years passed by,
    The servers all died,
    And then she had nothing and nobody.

    It took all her strength,
    To find a new game,
    Could she even build her rep again?

    He pushed through the slog,
    He kept with his vlog,
    His viewers would rise and drop by night

    But he sang and dance,
    By prep or just chance,
    And, then there was Fortnite!!

    Come join his MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    She’ll love his videos,
    And laugh at all his streaming jokes

    Come join her MMO,
    And try to flex your E-L-O
    Have you seen her badass moves?
    It looks like now he’s joined her groove.


    They weren’t so far apart,
    Social lives expressed by different hearts,
    The gates are open wide
    And now they both see another side

    She stuck it out until she found her world again.
    Were tables turning, or was it just paper and pen?


    Come join their MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    They’re in these videos,
    And making all the inside jokes

    Come join her MMO,
    And try to flex your E-L-O
    Have you seen her badass moves?
    It seems that Love could be their game.

    Come join their MMO,
    And really flex your E-L-O
    They’re in these videos,
    It seems that Love could be their game.
  • Please stop being perfect for a moment
    I need time to think
    every time I close my eyes I see you

    I see you

    Stop being everything I want

    I standing on the brink
    I'm gonna fall, I'm lost without you

    I see you

    You smell like perfection
    You can taste my fear

    I can feel you close
    your heartbeat in my ears

    My mind is stuck in perpetual motion
    You're just too good to be true
    Now I've made my self too vulnerable

    I see you

    Come and kiss me like you mean it
    You can lie if you have to
    Out of control when you hold me close

    I see you

    You smell like perfection
    You can taste my fear

    I can feel you close
    your heartbeat in my ears

    Gives us something to say
    It tells us to not let go

    Find your justice and the magic inside you

    Shining in the dark
    Kishi Kaisei spirits guide you

    Cast your spell on me
    Together no more lost at sea
    Ichinichi ippo and we’ll find what we are looking for

    You’ll see

    Kill, Kill, Kill the demons that fill the night
    Banish memories of darker times

    And keep holding on

  • Rise and shine, out of bed
    Time to save the world
    Just a child, with my friends:
    Two boys and a girl

    Got my cap and my bat and my HP is full
    Maxed my PP, too
    One more call to my dad and breath taken deep
    We've got a job to do

    The power coursing through my veins is more than I can bare
    Am I the right kid for this job?

    Mother, I send out this prayer unto
    My happiness depends on you
    Please send your best regards
    And give us the strength to beat all the guards

    Let us fulfill the legends told
    As I make new friends and lose the old
    What was lost, let it be found
    Let me be brave and stay Earthbound

    (Post-chorus)
    Earthbound
    Let me stay Earthbound
    Oh-oh

    From the one to the two to the three to the four
    We'll travel far and wide
    We'll hear all the songs to destroy all the bad
    And we'll see all the sights

    We'll stick together through the good and the bad
    For friendship is the key
    Come along, hold a hand, and don't cry till the end
    Through laughs and tragedy

    The world through which we travel is as odd as it can be
    Can I handle all the pressure?

    Mother, I send out this prayer unto
    My happiness depends on you
    Please send your best regards
    And give us the strength to beat all the guards

    Let us fulfill the legends told
    As I make new friends and lose the old
    What was lost, let it be found
    Let me be brave and stay Earthbound

    Earthbound
    Let me stay Earthbound
    Oh-oh

    (??)

    If I give myself up for this world, to take the evil down,
    Will I make it back alive?

    Mother, I send out this prayer unto
    My happiness depends on you
    Please send your best regards
    And give us the strength to beat all the guards

  • I'm on an unfamiliar page
    A hand is writ, but not the same
    Another world is calling me to stage
    On a western wind of change
    I perceive the many voices
    All the distant choices
    I might make

    So uploaded I'm in the cloud
    Air in hollow
    What's in front of me in the crowd?
    Who might follow?
    On a precipice looking down
    Half a step and I'm on the ground
    Memories on top of me and I drop

    All in all
    Hold my soul
    Raise it strong
    Ice and store it somewhere high
    Earn my eye
    In this mind
    All I know is overdrive

    In a photograph
    I recognize the facets of my time
    But I can't look behind and see inside
    Every vitalizing rain
    Grew the seed but drew away from
    What I might have become
    By mistake

    Sick of melodies in my head
    I ho hum to
    Passages that I never read
    There when I come to
    And I'm in my bed
    Meeting faces I can't forget
    Even when I'm half asleep it won't stop

    All in all
    Take my role
    Ghost in the road
    On a pale sweet morning, go
    Heed my sight
    In this life
    All I know is overdrive
  • Zuko's Redemption

    Since I was a boy
    Filled with dreams of destiny and war
    With a single purpose to fulfill
    To hunt down down and catch the avatar

    Came prepared to fight
    Not for all these tricks and childish games
    Why would he risk his own life for mine
    With his ramblings of a better way


    Born to command the flames
    But there’s a spark I can’t erase
    Leading down a dangerous path
    With no hope of turning back


    Where did I go wrong?
    What is it this child wants me to see
    Are we not the glorious empire
    Spreading greatness far across the seas

    What would father say?
    So close to redemption in his eyes
    On the brink of all I thought I want
    Why this sudden yearning to defy?


    Born to command the flames
    But there’s a spark I can’t erase
    Leading down a dangerous path
    With no hope of turning back

    What if the boy is right?
    With his teachings of a different life
    Can I walk that dangerous path?
    At the cost of all I thought I am
  • Verse 1
    There's nothing quite like summer in the city
    Thirst creeping up between the fever dreams

    Pre-chorus
    Insomnia comes alive
    During these shorter nights
    The stars seem brighter in the sky
    (Desire at an all time high)

    Chorus
    Show me how to say no to this
    There's no way I can say no like this
    Drawn to all directions but my own
    Overwhelming, compelling, no heart or soul

    Verse 2
    There's no such thing as nights without sin
    Inebriated dizziness with crawling hands on skin

    Pre-chorus
    Insomnia comes alive
    During these shorter nights
    The stars seem brighter in the sky
    (Desire at an all time high)

    Bridge
    The situation's helpless
    In my mind I'm trying to get far away
    There’s trouble brewing in the air,
    You can see it coming from miles away

    My spirit's not been my own
    For longer than I have known
    This smog is all up in my lungs
    How is it I feel cold?

    No persons by my side
    Why does my heart feel heavy in the dead of night
    No sense of touch, no fire inside
    This city has fully taken my life

    Chorus
    Show me how to say no to this
    There's no way I can say no like this
    Drawn to all directions but my own
    Overwhelming, compelling, no heart or soul
    Show me how to say no this
    My labored breathing is fully out of control
    Drawn to all directions but my own
    Intoxicating to my bones, now won't you give me more

    :23 Verse 1 - Melodic
    As fate would have it,
    I’m a wreck

    Can’t catch a break,
    Can’t hurt a fly

    But when I found you
    In the wild
    You caught my eyes,
    I cracked a smile

    And as your passion struck
    The light, I saw the fire in your--



    And then my hand flew in the air,
    A whirling spinning casts a glare.
    Ruby Ray to start the show
    That’s when you [Start to GLOW]

    Break apart, and you’ll come loose,
    Just when there’s nothing left to lose!
    Ruby Ray to start the show
    That’s when you [Start to GLOW]


    DON’T COME UNDONE

    YEAH YOU’RE THE ONE

    DON’T COME UNDONE

    LETS ACT AS ONE


    And as my hand flew in the air,
    A whirling spinning casts a glare.
    Ruby Ray to start the show
    That’s when you [Start to GLOW]

    Break apart, and you’ll come loose,
    Just when there’s nothing left to lose!
    Ruby Ray to start the show
    That’s when you [Start to GLOW]

    She was given to indecision,
    and living in an imprisonment, gifted with visions, and then insisted to listen to all the intricate business, she had incisions that glistened and now she’s switching the wishes that she envisioned.
    In a cyclic predicament, she pretended to visit an inner critic who told her that this was it so she shifted, to use the gifts with which she was inflicted.

  • One day I woke up in this world and I’ve never been so confused,
    Everybody’s got strange-looking hair, all the hot springs get overused
    They all think I belong here; they think I’m mysterious, kind and cool
    But the truth is I don’t understand anything that’s being said and I feel like a fool


    Someone tell me what’s the deal?
    They all call me Senpai, is this real?
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu is that okay?

    Someone tell me, what’s this land?
    There is no one that I understand.
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu is that okay?


    I guess that I should come clean and tell everybody right now,
    I don’t speak any Japanese, and this world’s kind of freaking me out.
    All these odd revelations, weird transformations, don’t know what to expect,
    But I guess I’m doing something right, how on earth did I earn all this respect?


    Someone tell me what’s the deal?
    They all call me Senpai, is this real?
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu, is that okay?

    Someone tell me, what’s this land?
    There is no one that I understand.
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu is that okay?


    [solo]


    Everyone’s always here stuffing their face.
    What’s up with all of these beach get-aways?
    Everything’s possible in this new place,
    There are even cats going to space!!!!


    Someone tell me what’s the deal?
    They all call me Senpai, is this real?
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu is that okay?

    Someone tell me, what’s this land?
    There is no one that I understand.
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu, is that okay?


    Someone tell me what’s the deal?

    Someone tell me, what’s this land?
    There is no one that I understand.
    All I really know how to say
    Is Ryokai Desu…
    Ryokai Desu…
    Ryokai Desu…

    Is that okay?

  • [Verse 1]
    Welcome to the frenzy you won't be the one
    To take down what you're seeing, well if you see at all
    This fistfight, the gun's mine and I'm so out for blood
    It seems it's time I made you acquainted with the ground

    [Pre-chorus]
    I'll run circles round ya
    From inside your mind
    Can't break my steel illusion
    Let me see you cry

    [Chorus]
    Red ruby eyes out for the kill
    I work hard, I steal hard, do it for the thrill
    Been through life's worst parts, yeah I've had my fill
    I'm emerald, I'm evergreen, don't I do it well
    Red ruby eyes out for the kill
    A danger, no angel, I'm deadly as sin
    Try to dispel me, I'm under your skin
    Your perception's moot, I'm the devil within

    [Verse 2]
    Well, an orphan, illusionist and a pretty damn good thief
    Pickpocketed to survive, screw turning over a new leaf
    There's only one person that I've ever believed
    Just cinder, my burnt out flame, now all I have is me

    [Pre-chorus]
    I'll run circles round ya
    From inside your mind
    Can't break my steel illusion
    Let me see you try

    [Chorus]
    Red ruby eyes out for the kill
    I work hard, I steal hard, do it for the thrill
    Been through life's worst parts, yeah I've had my fill
    I'm emerald, I'm evergreen, don't I do it well
    Red ruby eyes out for the kill
    A danger, no angel, I'm deadly as sin
    Try to dispel me, I'm under your skin
    Your perception is moot, I'm the devil within

    But I hope just that you know
    I will be with you in spirit
    Wherever you roam
  • Verse 1:

    In a place, far away,
    Lived a girl, bright as day
    And her name was Maruška, Maruška was her name,
    All the same.

    And her dad, was long gone
    Left her with her stepmom
    And a stepsister Helen, who hated the sight of her face,
    Such disgrace.

    On a cold winter night,
    Helen said: “Go outside,
    Go and get me some violets and don’t come back until you’re done
    Better run.”

    Maruška, set out slow,
    Plowing through endless snow
    In the shadows of the forest, she noticed there sitting twelve men,
    She cried then.

    And they said:

    Chorus 1:

    Child, we’re the 12 months.
    What do you need from us, what can we do?
    Brother January told brother March give the girl the violets she needs.
    Yes indeed.

    And so it went.

    Verse 2:

    Helen got quite upset,
    Took the violets, then she said:
    “Girl, bring me some apples and make sure that they are bright red,
    Or you’re dead.”

    One last time, Maruška ran
    To the kind-hearted men
    And she begged them for apples to make sure that she would not die,
    And that’s why

    They said

    Chorus 2:

    Child, we’re the 12 months.
    What do you need from us, what can we do?
    Brother September gave her all the apples he could,
    From the woods.

    And so it went.

    Verse 3:

    Helen was so enraged,
    That the girl, that she’d caged,
    Was successful and happy and Helen just wanted her dead.
    ‘T was so sad.

    Helen went to the woods,
    Saw the men, knew she would.
    And she told them quite crossly that they were a bunch of old fools,
    Broke the rules.

    And they said:

    Chorus 3:

    Child, we’re the 12 months.
    You just insulted us, now you will pay.
    Brother January summoned a blizzard, and that’s how she died.
    Out of pride.

    But Maruška lived long and she joined the old men now and then,
    So it went.
  • She came light as a feather
    down on my hand
    Weaving spells in the weather
    with fluttering hands

    All through summer
    we were side by side
    now in Lonely hours
    The winter hides
    Our eyes for one another
    In disguise
    she comes to hold me close
    but I don't know her from the other ghosts
    that haunt my mind

    Seasons passed in a tempest of changeable times
    The war was over
    I left my scars behind
    But memory haunts me
    of those sunlit days
    When I felt warmth and light
    In hands that lay
    on a broken man (girl/
    And took my pain
    Now I long to hold her close
    But I can't know her from the other ghosts
    That haunt my dreams

    Life goes on
    These Inveitable days
    Ever changing and yet somehow the same
    We shoulder the blame

    Death came light as a feather down for my hand
    Feeling solid as leather supple as sand
    As I rose up into the wind and light
    There her smiling eyes
    And fae delight
    Pieced my soul together
    Held me tight
    And we flew around the coast
    And no one knew us from the other ghosts
    That filled the night
  • I see him on the street
    Looking mighty fine
    He’s tall and oh so sweet
    His smile is divine

    My eyes and his don’t meet
    But they still draw out a sigh
    Shrouded in mystique
    I have feelings for this guy

    [Chorus]
    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love’s a fairy tale
    Whoah yeah, just a fairy tale

    Then he asks me out
    We’ve been dating for some time
    Now we’re getting married
    We live a life sublime

    Our children are just like us
    She has her father’s smile
    The boy is a dreamer
    With his mother’s sense of style

    [Chorus]
    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love’s a fairy tale

    [Bridge]
    True love can be so simple
    Without the complexity
    True love can be so pure
    Without reality

    [solo]

    Then he gets on his bus
    And I get onto mine
    This isn’t what it seems
    The rest was just a dream

    The world is full of love
    In every heart that beats
    Love is standing at the bus stop
    And will pass you on the street

    [Chorus]
    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love's a fairy tale

    My love for you is true
    My love for you won’t fail
    I love you through and through
    But our love's a fairy tale
  • (Verse 1)
    All has changed for the worse
    The Dionysus curse
    For when I tripped and fell
    The world had turned to Hell
    For all the world had died
    And gained a golden hide
    Frozen into place
    Life gone without a trace

    (Verse 2)
    Earth, a metal ball of pain
    With molten golden rain
    The world of Olde has passed
    The seas no longer glass
    But solid golden floor

    (Chorus)
    Will Zeus strike me down?
    In my regret I drown
    The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
    A genocide of gold
    That all the gods will scold
    I’m the Golden Devil
    with a cold and golden soul

    (Verse 3)
    All the children stare ahead
    Smiles frozen on their heads
    But are they alive still?
    Or statues on a hill?
    The world is a still life
    With scenes frozen in time
    Life’s come to an end
    Not even the gods can amend

    (Verse 4)
    Oh, the sky is falling down
    As the clouds hit the ground
    Pure gold lands down on me
    Terminal velocity
    A gold a blinding light

    (Chorus)
    Will Zeus strike me down?
    In my regret I drown
    The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
    A genocide of gold
    That all the gods will scold
    I am the Golden Devil
    with a cold and golden soul

    (Verse 5)
    I have made the Golden globe
    Ended all life, I know
    I’m the Golden Devil
    And I am going psycho
    To join my creation
    Perform self extinction
    I’ m the Golden Devil
    God of Petrification

    (Verse 6)
    Should I give myself a squeeze
    Among the Golden breeze
    To join the tragedy
    And end the misery
    When Earth is history

    (Chorus)
    Will Zeus strike me down?
    In my regret I drown
    The world turned upside down (my wish unfolds)
    A genocide of gold
    That all the gods will scold
    I am the Golden Devil
    with a cold and golden soul

    (Hook/Refrain)
    Take all of the legends told
    Touch them once, they turn to gold
    All reality unfolds
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold
    All is glitter, all is gold

  • Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster
    ------------
    VERSE
    Once upon a time
    in a land called cyberspace
    in order to break the paradigm
    make this such a better place
    A randomly assorted group
    of adventurers around the globe
    decided to try and dupe
    S.E.O. search spider probes....

    CHORUS
    They employed dwarven magic spells
    For the King's wizard then to conjure
    The hunchback rang all the castle bells
    To attract the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster

    The dragon guarded all the queen's gold
    Though she knew how much this could cost her
    Apples that still keep her from growing old
    Will now be eaten by the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster

    BRIDGE
    The team had decided
    as best they can
    Search engines are provided
    with keyword spam
    All the phrases come to mind
    for myth and legend terms
    Use as many as they can find
    fairy tale keywords

    VERSE
    the Prince's stepmother
    summoned all the knights
    The throne needs to discover
    The source of spam supply
    Quest party's formed with fervor
    Who will stick by them....
    But she's hidden on a server
    Shrouded by VPN

    CHORUS
    The crown directs a DOS attack
    towards the source of all these dog turds
    ip pings are sent - but they won't bounce back
    The sorcery obscured, by the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster

    Kingdom's threatened treasure - by black magic
    Flamewar'd by endless zombies, sending rubbish back in concert
    Gives the Evil Princess pleasure, dipatching fear with hijacked traffic
    of herself, she's making copies of the Trolling Princess Hobbit Monster
  • Verse 1

    How everyone else smiled
    When they said they found your child
    But the imposter left behind
    Didn't have your young son's eyes

    They said that you were mad
    When you set out, knife in hand
    To seek out the lands of fey
    With an oath to make them pay

    Pre-chorus

    Only one bargain to strike
    Give back the boy
    Or pay with your life

    Chorus

    Into the Feywild

    Into the darkest dream
    Where the old magic still runs deep

    They've taken you r child

    To the primeval glades
    Armed only with a mother's rage

    Into the Feywild


    Verse 2

    Down ancient sylvan paths
    Not found on any maps
    Through a maze of brush and vines
    Emerging under different skies

    A lush and vibrant bloom
    The winds a fragrant tune
    Hiding hungry things that stalk
    About to learn just who they've crossed

    Pre-Chorus

    Why have you come
    Unwelcome outsider
    Nothing to wager
    And nothing to trade

  • Seven Tears

    Barefoot on the rocky shore
    Wanting for her love and nothing more
    Hopeful gaze upon the swell
    Where they bid their first and last farewell
    Bluebell clutched to her breast
    The longing surging within her chest
    She sings...


    I've shed seven tears for you
    Will you ever return?


    Through the spray, above the squall
    Upon the skerrie he lies he hears her call
    Been waiting for the spring tide day
    Remain strong, he thinks, I'm on my way
    A heart once torn between love and lore
    To swim or walk forever more
    He sings...


    Shed seven tears for me
    And I will appear
    Seven drops into the sea
    And I'll shed my skin to be...
    For eternity, with you


    We'll shed no more tears
    In each others arms
    In our own world in between
    Forever holding on...
    For eternity, to you
  • "Roots of Old"

    These whispers lived
    Ten thousand years
    Once told by trees
    Roots wrapped in bones

    They spoke of times
    When none were here
    'Pon land made free
    And all was home

    Hear the wind
    Bend your ear
    Bend the knee
    Before the old

    Roots of yore
    Untarnished green
    Brown and deep
    Ne'er let you go

    Day saw a soul
    With quickened feet
    With swallowed fear
    Strike out alone

    Gleaming eyes all glittered gold
    Another thousand trees grow cold
    Skies watch on, their thunder rolled
    Yet these whispers
    These whispers
    These whispers ten thousandfold

    Tore the skies with all their might
    Where once was day, now bruised by night
    These roots of old now bathed in light
    With whipping winds these whispers
    These whispers burned electric bright

    A soul took shelter
    Stole the dead
    Bones of the earth
    Built overhead

    A soul kept dry
    Until the flood
    Drew tears of blood
    Swayed green to red

    A soul sought solace
    From the gods above
    Those tired eyes
    Held no more love

    Though whispers
    Ten thousand years
    Foretold by trees
    Roots wrapped in bones

    Day saw a soul
    With quickened feet
    With swallowed fear
    Strike out alone

    Gleaming eyes all glittered gold
    Another thousand trees grow cold
    Skies watch on, their thunder rolled
    Yet these whispers
    These whispers
    These whispers ten thousandfold

    Tore the skies with all their might
    Where once was day, now bruised by night
    These roots of old now bathed in light
    With whipping winds these whispers
    These whispers burned electric bright
  • Sitting Hungry, I’m just watching Mummy
    Feel the growl, rumbling in my tummy
    Daddy, says it’s too hot, too hot to eat
    Got to walk about, got to get on our feet
    Leave it on the stove, let it cool right down
    Stick to the forest, keep away from town
    Keep to ourselves, that’s the message thats sent
    But we’re happy as a family, so the story went

    But these are the days
    These are the years,
    Victim shaming
    Victim blaming
    Just because we are the bears

    When I get home, I see the door,
    Open and swinging, footprints on the floor
    Might not have been forced in, but this is so true
    A piece of material caught, so shiny and blue
    My chair, is broken, My food is gone
    Walking round our home I know something is wrong
    Mum and Dads stuff is littered all around
    That's when we hear the low end rumbling sound

    But these are the days
    These are the years,
    Victim shaming
    Victim blaming
    Just because we are the bears

    See the flash of blonde, Hear her snoring loud
    Home invasion from a spoiled princess from the crowds
    She wakes up as I start to cry
    She screams and runs as tears fill up my eyes
    Daddy says we're fine, But I can’t be so sure
    Little princess stole the porridge and a little more
    She runs home telling stories to the town
    How I am the villain just because I’m brown
    I’m the victim, I’m the child should not be full of rage
    They want to take me from my house put me in a cage

    But these are the days
    These are the years,
    Victim shaming
    Victim blaming
    Just because we are the bears
  • Verse 1
    Out in the Bayou waters
    A mysterious orb is floating, glowing
    Willow or wisp, I want to follow you

    Some call me Cajun Fairy
    Spirit, ghost, maybe devil or demon
    My guiding light will show you what to do

    Just a dip in the water
    The floating light is so compelling
    I will find a path that leads me through

    They're out to get you

    A festival, it's so inviting
    Draw you in then leave you lost, confused
    Could your end be near?

    Verse 2
    I started out with a story
    I just wanted to know the secrets
    What is hiding here or maybe who

    You thought this would be easy
    Should have planned for a treacherous journey
    Your fate will come and you will have no clue
    The Feu Follet

    Didn't plan for so much danger
    Wasn't sure that I would make it through

    As many as six impossible things

    Would do just as well

    Curioser and curioser and curiouser
    Thus grows the tale of Wonderland

    It's all very well to say drink me
    But I'm not in any hurry
    I'm down the rabbit hole with my new friends
    First I'll check to see if it's marked poison
    After all it's my own choice here
    I generally give myself very good advice
    (though I very seldom follow it)

    I think I could if only I knew how

    You offer me to take more tea
    But I've had none yet so I can't possibly take more
    Or is it that I can't take less?

  • In ancient times when people said
    that "power lies in the name of men"
    A pitiable, bastard child was born
    son of a witch and whore.

    And so he was born without name
    half cursed, half blessed
    wretched all the same.
    The day he would reap
    you'd die in your sleep.
    Beware the Thief of Names.


    Beware of the devil that lies in the unknown.
    Repent of your sins and name your sons.
    So fate may not breed another Thief of Names.

    Don’t speak ill of him or he’ll turn you to ash,
    he knows you well.
    Don't ever give your name to the King without a Name.


    One day like today, he went far off the streets
    sneaked past the pits
    into gardens green.
    And there in the gardens alone at play
    the young king he did see.

    And thus they did meet. He asked his name.
    The answer felt ill, what could he have said?
    That night atop the throne there sat
    a new King without a Name.


    Beware of the devil that lies in the unknown.
    Repent of your sins and name your sons.
    So fate may not breed another Thief of Names.

    Don’t speak ill of him or he’ll turn you to ash
    he knows you well.
    Don't ever give your name to the King without a Name.


    And from the day he first arose
    to sit on his throne he’s watched us all.
    Don’t speak ill of him, he’ll turn you to ash
    and you’ll have yourself to blame.


    That's why we now all have our given names
    from the moment you're born
    you'll bear no shame.
    So guard it well so you don’t become
    another pawn in his game.

    There once was a kid born without a name
    and I was cursed to tell his tale.
    Cause I am the mother of that child.
    Of the King without, the Thief of
    The King without a Name.
  • In loving memory of Goldie Eulett
    1940-2019


    On that Sunday sundown, when your spirit was rising
    Leaving our world behind to rejoin the horizon
    When you finally wished our cruel world adieu
    And you stared at that painting on the wall
    Of the Lord~

    On the bed where you slept for so long
    You were lying
    And after so many years of pain
    You were dying

    I was the last one to see you when I said my goodbyes


    Oh, the years may go by, but your memory stays with him
    He may say he's alright but his eyes they still glisten
    When he bids you goodnight on the bed where you left
    And he stares at the painting on the wall
    Of the Lord~

    All alone after 56 years
    He's still crying
    And the slow decaying of his mind
    He's denying

    For weeks after he was sleeping in that very same bed


    Though the years may go by like dawn's rosy fingers
    Your bed's been removed but your memory still lingers
    When I lay down to sleep and see you in dreams
    And I stare at the painting on the wall
    Of the Lord~

    Though the memories I have of you now
    May grow fuzzy
    Through the good and the bad times we had
    You still loved me

    I moved into the same room where you slept and you left
  • Sleep my child, for one day soon,
    you will need to wake
    To a world of uncertainty, my girl,
    with everything at stake
    You’ll have many burning questions,
    love, most about your past
    How cruel and kind we all once were..

    (0:42)
    You are the future, heart,
    but your time will soon be now,
    The past creeps in with the shadows, dear,
    and then you will see how…
    No.. close your eyes and sleep,
    my tiny tear of joy
    I sing that you see us rosier,
    but for now, sleep, my child, sleep

    (1:14)
    Each breath it will give you dreams of hope,
    my love, with every kiss and each embrace
    Sleep, my love, we’re waiting for you,
    one day to make that change
    That one forbidden minute
    to release us from this downward race
    That one unforgotten dream
    to inspire us and follow through
    So Sleep, sweet Lily, and make our dreams come true
    Do the things we could not do

    Awake, princess, and have your sword ready
    Treasure every moment as the falling dust is nearing
    Find your happiness, wash in the roars, and cheering
    Shine like none before, still the silence we are fearing

    Live, my love, like no other life
    Yours is the world and ours to envy
    Live, my heart, and make them take notice
    This is your legacy
    Breathe, and fight for your last lung
    Draw blood, my dear, for what must become
    Survive, and drive, and charge bravely
    Into this world not yet undone
  • Hey little one, do not cry
    See the moon ... bright in the sky.
    Hey little one, I'm now here

    Sparkling up are the stars ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon you, yes you, you're a special little one

    Hey little one, my only star
    Skate through skies ... that's who you are.
    Hey little one, I'm now here

    Sparkling up there you are ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon me, yes you, you're a special little one

    Remember our good times
    When I sung you nursery rhymes.
    Now you are the one singing to me...

    Sparkling up are the stars ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon you, yes you, you're a special little one
    Sparkling up there you are ... smiling from up there, having fun
    Looking down upon me, yes you, you're a special little one
  • Verse 1
    Too many problems always weighing on your mind
    Didn't learn the last dozen or so times
    Thought all those years were supposed to make you wise
    But here you are, just as dumb and twice as tired


    Chorus
    You'll still be here tomorrow
    For better or for worse
    Clear your head and try again
    But take a breather first

    There's hell to pay
    But not today
    No need to weep
    Just get your ass to sleep

    Verse 2

    Too many questions but the answers never come
    Get through the day just trying not to come undone
    Half of you says that the future’s still ahead
    The other half says why’d you bother getting out of bed

    Chorus

    Bridge
    Maybe you’ll rule the world some day
    Or at least feel it’s all okay
    Until then cut yourself some slack
    Kick back and take a nap
  • [VERSE 1]

    The man on the moon is watching the rivers flow
    The man on the moon is watching the children grow
    So high in the sky, so bright in the navy blue
    My darling, don’t cry, cause he's watching over you

    [CHORUS 1]

    Nothing can touch you
    No one can hurt you

    [VERSE 2]

    The man on the moon is watching the seasons change
    The seas and the lakes, the hills and the mountain range
    The beat of the drum, the feet falling out of step
    The man on the moon is watching your every breath

    [CHORUS 2]

    But nothing can touch you
    No one can hurt you

    [VERSE 3]

    You count all the sheep, protected from all the harm
    When you’re fast asleep he’ll cradle you in his arms
    With every exhale you’re rising above the clouds
    You’re so far away, nobody can get you now

    [CHORUS 3]

    Nothing can touch you
    No one can hurt you
  • Still Dreaming

    Skipping down the high street
    Feeling light beneath my feet
    Eyes keep closing
    And I keep floating along

    Jump up to the moon beams
    Clear my head for these dreams
    Eyes keep closing
    And I keep floating along


    So take a step,
    Feel no regrets
    Let the heavy tide wash you away
    So drift to me
    Across the Sea
    Feel the night creeping away


    I’m still dreaming,
    And I’m still feeling
    The stars play around me like flies
    I’m still dreaming
    That you’re believing
    That we’ll find a way to survive


    I keep hold of this feeling
    We’re falling into this meaning
    Eyes keep closing
    And I keep floating along

    Skipping down the high street
    Clear my head for these dreams
    I keep hoping
    We’re Washed away with the waves


    So take a step,
    Feel no regrets
    Let the heavy tide wash you away
    So drift to me
    Across the Sea
    Feel the night creeping away


    I’m still dreaming,
    And I’m still feeling
    The stars play around me like flies
    I’m still dreaming
    That you’re believing
    That we’ll find a way to survive
    I’m Still dreaming
    That I’ll be leaving
    But the light catches us too soon
    But the light catches us too soon
  • At sunrise we'll go out
    and battle all the fools and monsters
    Sunlight on our side
    we know the truth will keep us steady

    Rested we will be
    Ready for all the world may bring
    We knew that this would be
    The day that we could see

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
    Dreams


    Dangerous it seems
    It somehow always feels that way
    And certainly it is,
    But every day is made of courage


    Rested we will be
    Ready for all the world may bring
    We knew that this would be
    The day that we could see

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
    Dreams


    Oh
    Ah
    Dreams, dreams, dreams x 2

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
    Dreams

    That dreams
    will show us better days
    Dreams
    will heal your weary eyes
    Dreams
    will show us better ways
  • [verse]
    Shoving off
    Out to sea
    Something special out there
    is waiting just for me

    Little boat
    Sail like wings
    my two eyes to keep watch
    on how it swings

    [prechorus]
    Stars to be my guide
    Across this ocean wide

    [chorus]
    And come whatever may
    Calming blue or stormy gray
    I know where I'll be
    at the end of the day

    [verse]
    Look out there!
    Drop the sail!
    What did I just see,
    could that be a whale?

    Setting sun
    Almost night
    But I'm well prepared,
    all my knots are tight

    [prechorus]
    No clouds above my head
    No waves below my bed

    [chorus]
    The warm sea breeze is slow
    So it's time for me to go
    I feel the ocean breathe
    it's little way to let me know

    [outro]
    Shoving off
    Out to sea
    Something special out there
    is waiting just for me
  • This gentle breeze
    That smells like freedom
    Caresses my skin and takes my worries as it goes
    The waves lap the shore, a soothing song
    And my eyes start to close

    There's something peaceful about the wind and the waves
    Something that pulls me down, and I can't help but follow
    I can't help but follow

    It's like a dream, this sandy scene
    A perfect breeze, tranquility
    Come with me, where we can be free
    It's so easy, just take my hand and let's

    Escape to the farthest reaches
    Sipping drinks on endless beaches
    Listen to the wind and the waves
    Taking naps on sunny days
    Warm nights sitting by the fire
    Slowly drifting higher and higher
    Sit back, watch our worries fade
    And carry on with our escape

    In my dreams, I see an endless white beach
    A sapphire sea from here to the horizon
    The sun shining down on your hair
    And it's not fair, you look so perfect

    It's like a dream, this sandy scene
    A perfect breeze, tranquility
    Come with me, where we can be free
    It's so easy, just take my hand and let's
    Get away from all of this
    Get away from all of this

    Escape to the farthest reaches
    Sipping drinks on endless beaches
    Listen to the wind and the waves
    Taking naps on sunny days
    Warm nights sitting by the fire
    Slowly drifting higher and higher
    Sit back, watch our worries fade
    And carry on with our escape
  • Sleeping in the Washing Machine
    -------
    VERSE

    Restlessness it brings about
    So many shades of wrong
    The car alarm is singing out
    I hate that frickin song

    No place anywhere for solace
    That one would hope to find
    No environment for slumber flawless
    To quiet this raging mind

    CHORUS
    So here I rest and get so clean
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    I lay my head on a pair of jeans
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Socks and towels, snug between
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Curled up in there, it's great hygiene
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)


    VERSE
    Who knew that sleep was such a labor
    No slumber is allowed
    Next door I am hearing neighbors
    Partying and loud

    Frustration at the lack of power
    A fog of dark moonlight
    Agitation midnight hour
    Dogs bark into the night

    CHORUS
    But now I doze with peaceful dreams
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    On soft clothes in this machine
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Set the dryer for an hour fifteen
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Tumbling choir, so serene
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)

    And here I rest and get so clean
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    I lay my head on a pair of jeans
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Socks and towels, snug between
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
    Curled up in there, it's great hygiene
    (Sleeping in the Washing Machine)
  • I wish for you to close your eyes
    To dream of beauty in the stars
    I know the constellations
    Will light up your path through the dark

    My darling you should never fear when you're asleep

    I will guide your way through the darkness even when you can't see
    Feel the way your heart is protected, when you're scared and that's where I'll be

    I wish for you to dream of rainbows
    To see the world in all the colors
    I know the sun- and moonlight
    Will keep the darkness away

    My darling you should never fear when you're away from me

    I will guide your way through the darkness even when you can't see
    Feel the way your heart your heart is protected when you're scared and that's where I'll be
  • Fly away we'll float away

    Follow me
    Take my hand
    I'll see you
    In dream land

    Lights decay skies turn grey
    Thoughts replay wash away

    Follow me
    Take my hand
    I'll see you
    In dream land

    Far away the lights decay
    Fly away we'll float away

    All of our hopes and our beginning
    Frozen in time for us to keep
    The outside world gradually dimming
    We will fly

    Far away the lights decay
    Fly away we'll float away
  • Special thanks for /u/Chex for inspiring/writing some of the lyrics

    Sleep tight, honey
    I won’t let you go anymore
    I’ll try to say something funny
    Cause that always made you fall asleep before

    Just think of what she’d say:
    “Tomorrow will be a brighter day”

    The night brings back memories
    Of the songs she’d sing about the moon
    She might not be watching over me
    But I know for sure she’s watching over you

    Just think of what she’d say:
    “Tomorrow will be a brighter day”
    It’s gonna be alright
    Cause I’ll always be here to wish you good night

    I’ll sing you lullabies, till you close your little eyes
    Though I know I’ll never sing as well as her
    And I’ll bring you to your bed, lay down your little head
    And in my sweetest voice I’ll sing

    Sleep tight, honey
    Cause you’re all I’ve got anymore
    Though I might not be as lovely
    As your mother was, for you I’ll do my best for sure

    Just think of what she’d say:
    “Tomorrow will be a brighter day”
    It’s gonna be alright
    Cause I’ll always be here to wish you good night
  • INTRO
    Oh kids hey,
    it's Sunday!
    So don your prayer clothes,
    Call upon the shrine of Trader Joes!

    VERSE
    in the religion of consumerism
    there's a specific sect
    outsiders find the humor is in
    The gospel's spread effect

    There's no parking anywhere
    But nobody ever complains
    The Trader Joesians don't care
    They'll just wait outside, while it rains

    CHORUS
    You'll become a better person....
    As as soon as you arrive
    Your soul, it will be bursting
    With 2 buck chuck, you'll feel alive!
    You must bring your own canvas bags.....
    It has to say organic on the tags!
    We all are Trader Joes....

    VERSE [Note, the music gets really weird here, so have at it when singing]
    Free range, cage free, vegan eggs...........
    and grassfed organic meats
    locally grown, the question begs,
    why gluten free? Because no wheat.

    They'll take your paper coupons
    And give you cheese filled bliss
    Their own branding makes you too fond
    Like a do-good yuppie kiss

    CHORUS
    Conscious living is within you
    Wholesome freshness, like your town
    Not just a store, you'll begin to
    feel all-natural joy abound
    Your soul, it will be nourished
    2 buck chuck is holy wine
    Expanding, more stores flourish
    Chalk signs pointing to the shrine
    The neighborhood's around us!
    So good Trader Joe's found us!
  • Sweetened scent of something rotten
    Bundled up in silks and cotton
    Veiled, concealed, a ghastly rite
    Witnessed only by the hounds of night
    We've done the scrying, we know it's true
    Splash of crimson with the morning dew
    The grove is empty, it's in her hand
    Magic to restore the land

    Bella
    You are the seed
    Bella
    We'll watch you grow

    Crown of dirt and webs and feathers
    Bestowed upon her by forest dwellers
    Natterjack toads that blast and blight
    Sing the hymns that spirits write
    Across the leas, the wind it drones
    Carrying off the secret of her bones
    The stones don't speak, the elm won't talk
    Of all the places that we all walk

    Bella
    You are the seed
    Bella
    We'll watch you grow

    The specter and the shade
    Doom and bloom
    The soil and savagery
    Doom and bloom
    Doom and bloom

    Da nobis terram
    Quo indiget
    Nam quae germinare
    Quaedam quae oportet fieri

    Bella
    You are the seed
    Bella
    We'll watch you grow

    The specter and the shade
    The soil and savagery
    It’s doom and bloom
    Doom and bloom

    For the most heinous of crimes
    For sullying your ears with modern trash and slime

    I will not let you hold me down,
    To any one kind of song

    My heart yearns for so much more,
    That simply can’t be found
    When restricting oneself
    To any one kind of sound

    You gotta let go of the past and let music evolve
    What problem could these barriers possibly solve

    If you open up your mind I think you will see
    To truly understand the music, you
    you must be free
  • Children gather round the fire
    I have a story to tell
    Once when I was young like you
    the sickly men came

    They built big towers to the clouds
    They'd climb up and say her name
    They called and called into the sky
    And then the gray bird came

    A great big beast so pure and clean
    she flew so high above
    and from her claws she dropped a feast
    she roared and then flew off

    She came and went like the moon
    As gracious as the sun
    We all lived like chiefs for years and years
    We always had enough

    One day the gray bird will come
    and she'll bring us sugar and rum
    tea, coffee and chewing gum

    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again
    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again

    As fast as they came, the sickly men went
    They called into the sky last time they called and called her name
    She came down on a clearing the sickly men made
    She picked them up and flew away

    Now anytime there are no nuts and rivers have no trout
    Any year in which the big rains never come
    Anytime we go to sleep with stomachs big and loud
    We climb upon the sky-high towers and call and call into the clouds:

    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again
    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again

    .

    Yeah one day the gray bird will come
    and she'll bring us sugar and rum
    tea, coffee and chewing gum

    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again
    Please come to us gray bird
    we need you once again

    Greg: Steve… Oh Steve… after all that you’ve seen
    Do you really think we’re able to let you just leave (laughter).
    Hey… Greg… why are you laughing?
    We need an EMT for all these people collapsing
    All 13 are screaming, pleading, bleeding, and gasping
    Please untie me from this beam and cease this kidnapping
    Oh no… they’re standing back up and I still cannot move
    They’re all surrounding me and chanting damn, I'm so screwed…

    Broke free of the ropes and I’m booking it down the hall
    Hopefully, I can open the door before I get mauled
    I’m so focused and shook up I don’t notice the trap at all
    The conibear snaps closed my bone shatters and to my doom I fall (scream in pain)
    As they drag me back in agony the chanting amplifies (Chanting panning back and forth)
    I can’t help but piss my pants cause I’m actually gonna die
    I wake up in a giant chamber with a hole in the ground surrounded by strangers
    The chanting crescendos, burst spiny tendrils from their mouths as they start to metamorphosize

    “Steve, I’m glad you're back! In fact, you made it just in time!
    What happens next will leave you absolutely mesmerized!”
    Grant us mouths with which to speak
    Grant us wings with which to soar
    Grant us eyes with which to see
    We shall praise thee forevermore

    Chant:
    Grant us mouths with which to speak
    Grant us wings with which to soar
    Grant us eyes with which to see
    We shall praise thee forevermore

  • La vida perfecta será a través de la muerte (perfect life will be trough death)
    La extinción nos traerá vida perfecta (extinction will bring us perfect life)

    Life Moves forward
    Like a wave
    Growth and then decline
    Until it hits the break
    Into the wind now
    Sacrifice the drops
    Those that return
    Harvest the new crops

    Life survives the constant change
    More perfect life through death and pain
    When the comet arrived nothing survived
    But It wont be a rock that delivers the next extinction
    When the Humans arrive nothing survives

    Death remains still
    Waits for the surge
    Each time looms larger
    And weaves a new earth
    Into the ground now
    Drips from the altar
    Discarding the lost
    Shaping the future

    Life perceives the forest
    Mankind burns all they see
    Survival of the forest
    Demands burning some trees


    Live moves forward (death remains still)
    Like a wave (Waits for the surge)
    Growth and then decline (Each time looms larger)
    Until it hits the break (And weaves a new earth)
    Into the wind now (into the ground now)
    Sacrifice the drops (Drips from the altar)
    Those that return (Discarding the lost)
    Harvest the new crop (Seeding the future)

    Perfect life in the process of extinction
    Evolution through Extinction is perfect life.

    La vida perfecta será a través de la muerte (perfect life will be trough death)
    La extinción nos traerá vida perfecta (extinction will bring us perfect life)
  • [Verse]
    When the sun hits the window just right
    There's a perfect spot of warm sunlight
    On my favorite place on the windowsill
    Don't bother me - I'm busy, can't you tell?

    Pay your tribute by petting my fur
    If you're lucky I might start to purr
    Leave me offerings of red dots and mice
    If I don't like them I'll keep you up all night

    [Pre-Chorus]
    This particular food just isn't good enough
    My toys are under the couch, go buy me more stuff
    The tabby down the street has worshipers aplenty
    But I'm neglected - see? My dish is slightly empty

    [Chorus]
    I know you're doing your best, I know you're slow to think
    I know you're grateful when I offer you a slow blink
    Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
    Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

    [Verse]
    I have to ask you something, you do it every day
    What's the deal with all the litter you steal anyway?
    You wander aimlessly from room to room
    While I sleep away the afternoon

    [Pre-chorus]
    I see you sneaking pictures of me for the internet
    Has my Instagram cult reached a million fans yet?
    While you're at it, go and pour me out some catnip
    I hear Egyptians value cats - let's plan a road trip

    [Chorus]
    I know you're doing your best, I know you're slow to think
    I know you're grateful when I offer you a slow blink
    Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
    Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

    [Bridge]
    What are you hiding in your hand?
    Put me down - this isn't what we planned
    A towel wrapped around my dignity
    You didn't even give me a chance to flee

    The clippers come out and I flail
    Claws on skin leave a bloody trail
    And when it's over, I guess you won
    Now I'm sulking in the morning sun

    [Chorus]
    I know you're doing your best, and I'm starting to think
    I kind of love it when you return my slow blinks
    Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
    Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

    Hey take a picture again, I'll do a cute pose
    I'll even let you dress me in some tiny cat clothes
    How many likes did we get? How many followers?
    I'm the most popular cat in the entire universe

    Who comes down with such flavour

    [1:40 Refrain 2]
    Sick of being grated, melted on nachos?
    I'm here to take away all your sorrows
    Follow my advice and yell "Save me, please!"
    And don't forget to praise the big sky cheese
    Sheep, goat or cow, soft or mature
    If you're cheesy then you are pure
    Our day has come, we're not ingredients
    To be consumed by deviants

    [2:09 Verse 2]
    Bow down to the Almighty Curd!

    We'll make them roux the day
    They broke the mold away
    We'll leave them all morose
    Intolerant to lactose
    They'll never see it coming, sneak attack
    When the cheese finally bites back
  • [Verse 1]
    Sanguine queen, she speaks to me
    We conversate in symmetry
    Her mute words are unheard by you
    I hear them clear, silent, and true

    She beckons me to beg you all
    To hear her too and heed her call
    Our time flies on this dying earth
    Soon we will all join her rebirth

    [Chorus]
    Is it the lie you believe
    Or the truth that deceives
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    Can the mind even conceive
    What we want and what we need
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    [Verse 2]
    I'll lead you all through the unknown
    With seeds of armageddon sewn
    The false prophets and lieing lords
    Will soon fall victim to our swords

    Rivers will run red with blood
    Our numbers rising like a flood
    The shadows close in, sunlight fades
    The time has come, put palm to blade

    [Bridge]
    Our family, our congregation
    Will overthrow, defenestration
    Listen close you'll hear the sound
    Of bodies falling to the ground

    With heavy hearts and leaden hands
    Some bodies fall while others stand
    It's solemn now our souls are gone
    The Piper's at the gates of dawn

    [Chorus]
    Is it the lie you believe
    Or the truth that deceives
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    Can the mind even conceive
    What we want and what we need
    All eyes on the horizon
    Rise up and leave your vessel

    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

    Verse:

    the mystery of our 'married' life unfolds
    shadows turn and blackness bares all souls
    rainbow dust reflects in gold.

    I miss your sweat
    and all the plans we never met

    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

  • 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”

  • [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

  • 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

    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

    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

    Verse 1

    Got a pocket calculator that can find
    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

    Because the future is now

    The omnipresent 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?
    (How about I draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt) < sample

    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
    (When we put cunts in orbit, you won’t stop turning)
    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
  • Team 14, gonna be more mean than any other crew you have before seen
    Not weak nor green, so heed the warning, you only got two choices: either bleed or leave
    Everybody else gonna start to dance cause of the 12 gats that we got in our pants
    Get your head out the gutter, I ain't tryin to be gross.
    They're actually guns, we're gonna shoot at your toes


    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.

    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?

    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:

  • "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
    To the USSR

    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
    And into fame

    Hunted, cleft of Ekdanta
    In temples, and gilded caves
    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference
    To Mahadeva

    Hunted, cleft of Ekdanta
    In temples, and gilded caves
    Echo Ganesha's essence
    And deference
    To father's grace

    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

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

    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?

    we don't have to worry about a thing

    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

    [A smattering of applause.]

    The Unicorn

    (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

    (02:06)
    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
    A fantasy of deep deranged

    (03:46)
    Every cell screams to escape
    A thousand years, escape my fate
    Away...

    I come from a world
    that doesn't know poverty
    they live in a world
    that knows nothing else

    You'll see my name in lights
    You'll never know their names
    All day I fantasize
    humanity fades away

    Pre Chorus

    I'd like to strum a happy song and
    teach the world to sing along

    On the stage

    Blinding me to the the secret

    This place
    was made
    of blood neon and plastic

    Verse

    When I close my eyes
    fame is my fantasy
    I'm closing my eyes

    is just a fraud

    Bridge

    Companies buying people's labor for profit
    Hiding abuse in the public pocket
    They must climb up, topple the towers
    Unmask the wealth, destroy its power

    Burn through the bonds that choke their rights
    Take back their worth, give back our sight
    Their stories heard within the stands
    Their freedom raging with the sands

    Chorus 3

    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

    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.

    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

    expect roughs sees from here on in

    Chorus
    can’t go back in time
    you can’t just hit rewind

    can’t just make it fine…..again

    Verse
    their suffering eyes
    cannot begin to comprehend
    how we have let them down
    again and again

    so now we anticipate
    a new year and a better start
    but the toll still is being paid
    for realising too late

    prechorus
    the course is now all locked in
    expect roughs sees from here on in

    Chorus
    can’t go back in time
    you can’t just hit rewind
    cant go back in time
    can’t just make it fine…..again

    Bridge
    And we all have our regrets
    Cant just hit reset

    Chorus
    can’t go back in time
    you can’t just hit rewind
    cant go back in time
    can’t just make it fine

    can’t go back in time
    you can’t just hit rewind
    cant go back in time
    can’t just make it fine…..again

  • 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.


    Better Luck Next Year
    Better Luck Next Year
    My hearts been beaten down
    Yours in the drink
    So if this is one more
    I'll keep it moving on.
    Better Luck Next Year

    They sent us home for the summer
    We marched in the streets, wanted to make a change
    I wanted to see some passion color your face.
    But if you won't stand with me,
    and stick to your whiskey
    We gotta isolate.


    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.

  • Began the year thinkin it’s gon’ be roarin,
    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
  • WHAT A GREAT YEAR

    Drive-in movie theaters are back,
    what a great year, what a great year
    Too bad the federal government was hacked
    what a great year, what a great year
    We learned about nature from the Tiger King
    what a great year, what a great year
    no Going out - social distancing
    what a great year, what a great year

    Fashion choices - like tees and sweats
    No one rejoices - it's all regrets
    Killing time, and politics
    Amazon Prime, and I watch Netflix
    No happy hour, the bars are all closed
    Better take a shower, before I decompose

    YEAH YEAH YEAH - WHY NO MONEY?
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - TWO THOUSAND TWENTY!
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - WHEN WILL ALL THIS BE DONE
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - TWO THOUSAND TWENTY-ONE

    use Zoom to chat, hey YOU'RE ON MUTE
    what a great year, what a great year
    I got so fat, I busted a glute
    what a great year, what a great year
    So much time, no completed tasks
    what a great year, what a great year
    drank too much wine, got a red-stained mask
    what a great year, what a great year

    Fashion options - no underwear
    Proceed with caution - cause no one cares
    You cannot fear what you cannot see
    So drink ya beer - have ya herd immunity?
    so go, whatever, better get your shot
    kill this thing forever, before its caught

    YEAH YEAH YEAH - WHAT'S SO FUNNY?
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - TWO THOUSAND TWENTY!
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - WHEN CAN WE START HAVING FUN
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - TWO THOUSAND TWENTY-ONE

    My workplace closed, money deprived
    what a great year, what a great year
    Murder hornets have now arrived
    what a great year, what a great year
    Trump has trumped himself this time
    what a great year, what a great year
    There's no more coins, do you have a dime
    what a great year, what a great year

    Fashion alternative - full hazmat suit
    a giant explosion - destroyed beiruit
    Floyd's neck was knelt on, and now he's dead
    Protest injustice, so they called the feds
    Ginsberg, Boseman, Van Halen gone
    Another lockdown - it just drags on

    YEAH YEAH YEAH - THIS YEAR WAS SO CRUMMY
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - TWO THOUSAND TWENTY!
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - WHEN WILL THIS BE DONE?
    YEAH YEAH YEAH - TWO THOUSAND TWENTY-ONE
  • 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?
  • [Verse 1]
    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

    [Chorus]

  • As I race up to the ramparts,
    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 trader’s son
    and the singing swan,

  • 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)

    [Insert guitar solo here.]

  • Across this tormented land, across these blasted sands
    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?
    Ammit's grin of dagger sharp teeth
    The field of reeds is no place for thieves

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

    A reckoning for my desire
    Cast into the Lake of Fire

    The God King does arise

    In the shade of Uluru
    Our hearts will bear their truth

    Dead hands cannot make us fear
    Songline lives through tales of love
    Piercing the arid air

    Coursing through your dancing hands
    Spirit of the lover dancing
    Moving through your chest

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

    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

    ~Oh~
    How did I get here
    ~Oh~
    Alone in the sheer...
    Cold!

    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows
    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

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

    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows
    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows

    ~Ooh~
    Was that a chopper?
    (A frozen desert is a place that no one knows)
    ~Ooh~
    The sound of copter…
    (A frozen desert is a place that no one knows)
    Blades!

    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows
    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows
    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows
    A Frozen Desert is a place that nobody knows

    “The mind commands the body, and it obeys”

    Verse 1
    Wails of sun-desire
    Burning through the days
    Sending dreams of haze

    Dust of aeons, ages dead
    Burning through the days
    The Sleeper will wake

    In thoughts unspoken
    Hidden, power lies
    Reality,
    Construct of your-

    Fear is the mind-killer
    An empire dies

    A wall against the raging storm
    Look not where we dare
    A journey predestined forlorn
    Lone sands boundless and bare

  • 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

    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 (x2)
    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
  • I pray to you Jupiter
    Please give me strength
    I pray to you Polaris
    Please show me the way

    My journey is long and only you know where it ends
    Guide me and don't let me lose it all again

    She was all but a dream
    A mirage it seems to be
    As he loses the mind
    To the heat and the dry
    That dreams for the death
    And the demon that he knows
    All too well

    I pray to you Charon
    don't take me today
    I pray to you Mars
    please keep me safe

    When embers turn cold and I'm down on the ground
    Please take the watch
    And don't let me burn out

    She was all but a dream
    A mirage it seems to be
    As he loses the mind
    To the heat and the dry
    That dreams for the death
    And the demon that he knows

    Sandstorm blows like the wind
    As the final steps are gone
    I lie down as I fall
    And breath so deeply here
    I'm allowed to live
    Are the final ways here alone
    At night?

    When embers turn cold and I'm down on the ground
    Please take the watch
    And don't let me burn out
  • 40 days and 40 nights
    Not another soul insight
    Haven’t had a drop to drink
    Man it’s too damn hot to think

    I’m beginning to believe it’s just me
    And Jesus Christ in the desert.
    I’m beginning to believe it’s just me
    And Jesus Christ in the desert.

    Up ahead I see my grave
    All us sinners can’t be saved
    Leave my earthly goods behind
    And finally see that I was blind

    Now I know for sure its just me
    And Jesus christ in the desert
    Now I know for sure its just me
    And Jesus christ in the desert

    Give all my gold to the devil
    Swear to god I’d sell my soul
    Send all of your angels
    Come and tempt me home

    (solo)

    Because it’s always just been me
    And jesus christ in the desert

  • 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

  • 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*

    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

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

    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

  • 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

    You know it's coming for you
    You know it's coming for you

  • --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

    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?

    Definite evil
    Leaving the expectation of pain

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

    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
    The reaper's gift
    Was an angel's kiss

    instrumental (Do not sing this word)

    My heart will go on
    My heart will live on
    My heart will bleed on
    In you

  • [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)
  • Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    (Verse)
    Wakin' up, wakin' up, on a brand new day
    Nothin' new, nothin' new, it's the same ol' way
    Zephyrhills, Zephyrhills, it's a place to stay

    Six brothers, six brothers, smile and wave to me
    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
    Interrupt, interrupt, interrupt I did

    All my friends, all my friends, when they look at me
    In my eyes, in my eyes, they could fit a key
    Keyhole eyes, keyhole eyes, are my destiny

    (Chorus)
    First daughter, first daughter, of the Seventh son
    Has a life, has a life, unlike anyone
    Through my veins, through my veins, flows the pow'r of God

    I'm a girl and I'm tryna be kind
    But if you try and mess with me
    I won't hesitate to blow your mind

    (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

    (Chorus)
    First daughter, first daughter, of the Seventh son
    Has a life, has a life, unlike anyone
    Through my veins, through my veins, flows the pow'r of God

    I'm a girl and I'm tryna be kind
    But if you try and mess with me
    I won't hesitate to blow your mind

    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

    How I try, how I try, how I try to be
    A big help, a big help, for my family
    But my eyes, but my eyes, they take over me

  • A million people in their beds awake to morning light
    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

    Above the ground, the mushroom cloud knows no bounds
    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
    Just those who push, and us who die
    Through country lines, we are all the same

    (All the same)
    Overhead the mushroom cloud treats us all the same
    No matter who you were before, the bones look all the same
    (All the same)
    Overhead the mushroom cloud treats us all the same
    No matter who you were before, the bones look all the same

    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
    Just those who push, and us who die
    Through country lines, we are all the same

    No borders, boundaries, pointless fights
    Just those who push, and us who die
    Through country lines, we are all the same

    All the same
  • 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.

    Gone again
    Into the unknown
    Lost in space
    Lost at home

    Crystallized Astronomy
    The moon and tides subside
    One more midnight ride

    Galaxies inside my eyes

  • 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

    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

    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

  • 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?

    But they don't light my way
    Trapped in this mess again

    Cities rumblin'
    With a message they can't hear
    The people are tremblin'
    But I can't give in to fear

    But when the days get long
    And the feeling gets so strong

    I can't stop myself, I gotta wander [in time with the lead guitar]
    Can't stop the walls from closin' in
    And when they do, I put my headphones on ["on" hits on the on-beat of the next line and flows smoothly into the next line]
    And let the music drive, I gotta wander [in time with the lead guitar]

    I've got to wander

    When the world seems so bleak
    And I just wanna retreat

    I can't help myself, I gotta wander
    Can't stop the world from closin' in
    And when it does, I put my headphones on
    And let the music drive, I gotta wander

    Got to wander

  • [Verse]
    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

    [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

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

    [Chorus]
    Outcasts and scapegoats
    The devil in the shadows

  • 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}

    (Skit)
    Phone rings
    “Hey Sarah, party at my place. The big house, 30 minutes from the Sherriff's station down the old dirt road.
    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
    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 Fire Axe, and it’s stainless steel
    Throwing a house party and you’re all coming
    Nobody gonna leave til the blood stops running

    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,
    [Yo] Jeepers Creepers, 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 squibs, we’re doing this for real
    Brought my Buck 120, and it’s stainless steel
    Throwing a house party and you’re all coming
    Nobody gonna leave til the blood stops running


    Nobody gonna leave til the blood stops running
    Nobody gonna leave til the blood stops running

    [Ending skit under vocalizations:
    “This is Tammy Jarvis with the Plainsfield, Wisconsin’s sheriff’s department. We have you surrounded. Come out with your hands up. Please release any hostages- Oh god! What did you do to those girls! Open fire! Jesus christ, it has no effect- run! run!”]
  • [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
    (Candy, chocolate, syrup, jam!)
    Sugar rush
    (Honey, Snickers, M&Ms!)
    Sugar rush
    (Donuts, jelly, lollipops!)
    Sugar rush
    (Reese’s peanut butter cups!)
    Sugar crash
  • 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

  • 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.

    [Morc]
    Brother I have come!
    Brother I have come!
  • 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
    Give your all
    Fire away
    Watch me burn

    See my kingdom tumble down
    See my soldiers retreat
    Hear me ask
    “Why are you doing
    this, child?”
    Watch me burn
  • "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

    Intro:

    Hello there "Hero".
    I'm Beatrice de la Lumière
    Ha ha ha Ha ha ha
    Welcome to my lair! PREPARE TO DIE

    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
    And no one's gonna save you

    Your death is coming
    Your world is crumbling
    And that's the way it should be

    Verse 2

    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
    I'll give you all I've GOT

    So, please take your best damn SHOT
    cuz you're down for the count

    (ooh)

    I’m gonna take your out

    Pre-chorus

    Your death is coming
    Your world is crumbling
    And the world will burn around you

    Your death is coming
    Your pain is showing
    How many times will you get back up?

    I'm gonna tell you how it ends

    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

    Stomps of thunder; Cheers from down under

    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 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

  • Beneath the crunching leaves
    Is my heart
    Beating in the earth
    Whats that worth?

    Not nurtured and held
    Lost like lunch

    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

    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

    (Chorus)
    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


    Girl you drive me crazy

    I know you're tired
    But it's here to stay
    My love

    Can you feel
    Can you feel it?
    Can you feel
    My love in the air
    My darling

    When I'm, when I'm dreaming
    I think of you
    And I know when I'm away
    You do the same as well

    And in our darkest days
    My love for you will stay
    And even in a hurricane
    My love for you will stay
    Even through all the pain
    I hope that you will know
    Even at the end of days
    My love for you will stay

    Can you feel
    Can you feel it?
    Can you feel
    My love in the air
    My darling

    When I'm, when I'm dreaming
    I think of you

  • 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...

    I'm lost at sea
    I'm lost at sea
    Save me...
    Save me...

    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.

    Sayyida al Hurra brings her death to your sands.

    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,

  • 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

    Spot through the spyglass a merchant brig
    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

    ///01:11

    that you want me there at all
    So i'm walking backwards onto shore
    your stare just saddens more and more

    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

    C2
    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)

    ------------------
    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?

    A 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?

    Joystick buttons acting strange?

    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

    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

    Through Thunder 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)
  • Patch notes to developer
    Let's try this one more time
    This world might not be real
    But it's the only one that's mine

    Woke up to my refrigerator
    Leaking rows of numbers and code
    A dog-shaped blur pawing at my feet
    Reading "texture failed to load"
    To whoever's up there, I'm not asking for much
    But maybe fix this in the next patch
    It's hard to stay sane when I open my door
    To an "error 404"

    But it's the only one that's mine
    Patch notes to the developer
    So close but not quite there
    Another day, another bug
    Do try to take more care

    I was watching the sunset buffer
    When I finally had enough
    The traffic from work was still loading
    And the framerate's getting rough
    Hey you up there, heard of stack overflow?
    I'm tired of the birds clipping through my window
    Just staying sane is taking all that I got
    When my neighbor's a spambot

  • 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
    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
  • 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
  • == OPENING ==
    Voice A - Spoken Dramatically
    In a boiling, blistering hum,
    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

    [:24] I remember, when we hit rock bottom
