  • There’s no more story to be told
    There’s nothing left for me to hold
    All the games have grown old
    And I’m too cold to care

    We breathe each other’s atmosphere
    The only way I know you’re near
    There’s nothing left for me to fear
    Out here among the universe

    Alone among the dark abyss
    There’s no time to think of all I’ve missed
    No dreaming daze or bitter bliss
    No kiss goodbye this time

    When there’s no one to blame
    Will you call my name
    Will you still go far
    To catch this falling star

    When there’s no one to blame
    Will you call my name
    Will you still go far
    To catch this falling star

    We’ve gone to the ends of Earth together
    You fooled me into once forever
    A brilliant lie, and a bold endeavour
    But never will you win again

    Alone among the dark abyss
    There’s no time to think of all I’ve missed
    No dreaming daze or bitter bliss
    No kiss goodbye this time

    There’s no one left to blame
    Still you call my name
    A wish that faded like a scar
    You’ll never catch this falling star
  • Shut the door, change the scene
    I hate that I need you urgently
    Cut the cord, stay unseen
    A flower from you is a knife in me.
    Switch the glass, take the dive
    Right beside you as bullets fly
    Use the gas, plant the drive
    Wanting you keeps me alive

    Play it cool,
    Play it safe
    Live to see another day
    Play the fool,
    Find the safe
    Distract and dance the night away
    Fake a smile, stage a fight
    Look so lovely in this light
    Stay awhile, use the night
    Dash away without a sight

    Trench-black coat, snow-white hat
    Hack into my heart again
    Slit the throat,
    Alleyway cat
    Vendetta with a numbered name
    Grapple hook, climb unseen
    Undercover lovers to be
    Gadget look, hidden key
    I love it when your hands touch me

    Disguised Intentions
    Compromise the Mission
    Unwanted Affections
    Keep me from doing my job


    Steal the boat, steal the jet
    Whose side are you on again?
    Steal the code, steal the bet
    A good deed does not mend the sin
    Steal the hearts,
    Steal the minds
    Whose love will thy soul defy?
    Steal my breath, steal my life
    Leave me dead and far behind

    Disguised Intentions
    Compromise the Mission
    Unwanted Affections
    Keep me from doing my job

    Super Secret Super Spy
    Use to say: live and let die
    Shoot a plane out of the sky
    Got that deadly goldeneye
    Dirty Secrets
    Double Lives
    When tomorrow never dies
    Pretty faces; motives hide
    No more time left to die


    Disguised Intentions
    Compromise the Mission
    Unwanted Affections
    Keep me from doing my job

    Disguised Intentions
    Compromise the Mission
    Unwanted Affections
    Keep me from doing my job
  • Mission objective: Enter the compound and disable the alarm system. This will alert the guards to an intrusion, but should give you enough time to enter the catacombs and steal the terrorist intel. You must not be seen. Capture is not an option. Good luck.

    Dead of night, 0300 hours
    Out of sight, first stop cut the power
    Avoiding lights, guardsmen are patrolling
    Can't start fights, the shadows are consoling
    Bolt cutters in hand, fuse box straight ahead
    All's going to plan, now the lights are dead

    All the alarms have been disabled
    I slip in unseen, night vision enabled

    Like a ghost I walk these halls and all simply pass by me
    Shadows meld me to the walls and silence hides me slyly
    Darkness is my only witness, stealing secrets is my business
    Like a ghost I sneak inside and obtain all your data
    Shadows will help me to hide and help me escape later
    Darkness is my only witness, stealing secrets is my business

    The backup power generator has started up the failsafe security precaution network. Someone's hidden in building C, all guards to apprehend this intruder immediately.

    Shit.

    Klaxons are sounding, footsteps are approaching
    My heart is pounding, enemies encroaching
    Intel acquired, I pull out my gun
    Hear shots are fired, but I just fucking run
    Make my escape, there's no time to lose
    All caught on tape, so much for subterfuge
    Exit blocked by goons, I scan the scenery
    Explosion clears the room, I leave casually

    All the alarms are fully enabled
    I slip out unseen, 20 men disabled

    Like a ghost I run these halls their bullets all pass by me
    Grenades meld them to the walls and the smoke hides me slyly
    Darkness is my only witness, stealing secrets is my business
    Like a ghost I sneak outside and I have all your data
    Grenades will help me to escape leaving a smoking crater
    Darkness is my only witness, stealing secrets is my business
  • They say your tongue is poison
    But it’s sweet upon my lips
    They say you can move mountains
    By the swaying of your hips

    A fragile nation’s rise or fall
    Held tender in a slender palm
    The calm before a bitter storm
    The cold of killing to conform

    I’m watching every little move
    In this elaborate game we play
    No knowing next what turn you’ll choose
    To escape the touch of nightshade

    Do you keep close to then betray
    Return again to walk away
    Lead the lost to find what’s missing
    Heed the cost of reminiscing

    A kiss of shadow and you’re gone
    The falling notes of the last song
    Back to where you once belonged
    A memory made but not for long

    I’m watching every little move
    In this elaborate game we play
    No knowing next what turn you’ll choose
    To escape the touch of nightshade

    You took what was worth taking
    Woke those who needed waking
    And now there’s no mistaking
    The moves you have been making

    I watched your every little move
    In that elaborate game we played
    It wasn’t me you had to choose
    To escape the touch of nightshade

    Where we once belonged
  • Special thanks to RIP for helping me mix a lil bit (:

    Into the night
    Into the night
    Into the night
    Into the night

    My cloak is on my back
    My dagger’s at my side
    Always ready to attack
    But it’s my job to hide

    I serve my country’s king
    I am his ears and eyes
    Commanding a secret ring
    Of agents in disguise

    I’ve killed so many men
    And broken lovers’ hearts
    Just to do it all again-
    An actor, playing parts

    I rode for many days
    And scaled a castle wall
    To learn all about their ways
    And what could make them fall

    Sneaking my way into the keep
    The guards inside are fast asleep
    Search every room with blade in hand
    To find the scrolls of what they planned
    My task is done in record time
    It feels just like the perfect crime…

    Into the night
    Stay out of sight
    Into the night
    Stay out of sight
    Into the night
    Stay out of sight
    Into the night
    Stay out of sight


    But warning bells begin to sound
    They cry “a spy! He must be found!”
    Too many men for me to fight-
    I disappear into the night

    A bird in flight
    Into the night
    A bird in flight
    Into the night
    A bird in flight
    Into the night
    A bird in flight
    Into the night
  • Intro:
    [REDACTED]


    When will the heartbreak end?
    Find the peace our souls demand?
    ?כמה רחוק נרוץ [How far will we run?]
    ?עד שנמצא את השקט הנחוץ [Until we find the much needed quiet?]

    It's time to stop running away
    Fight for love without a delay
    Nuestro mundo se cae a mis pies [Our world falls at my feet]
    ¿Dónde vamos a parar esta vez? [Where are we going this time?]

    הבהמה באה להבעיר [The beast comes to set on fire]
    Nuestras almas al morir [Our souls when we die]
    אסור לנו שלא [We are not allowed not]
    A pararnos y a enfrentarlo [To stand and face it]

    Peace, שלום, Paz, can this be us?
    Love, אהבה, Amor, could we have more?
    War, מלחמה, Guerra, it ends yet another era
    Hate, שנאה, Odio, is the real foe

    We are always chased by the beast
    more of us die, and it feasts

    ?"מה קרה ל"אהבת לרעך כמוך [What happend to "love your neighbor as yourself"?]
    עוד דם זורם, עוד אמא בוכה [More blood flows, another mother cries]

    ¿Ya no habrá una vuelta atrás? [Will there be no turning back?]
    No terminará jamás [It will never end]

    This can't go on, it isn't right
    The bloodshed must end tonight

    War, מלחמה, Guerra, must not end another era
    Hate, שנאה, Odio, are we the real foe?
    Peace, שלום, Paz, this must be us!
    Love, אהבה, Amor, it's time for more!


    God stopped looking long ago
    It's up to us to end his wars
    We're all just human
    We all want to live
    We can stop taking
    We can learn to give
  • I could have seen this coming
    Had I not ignored the clues
    A novel theme for ending
    our shared New York City blues

    A strange smell in the air
    A perfume that I used to know
    The front door was left open
    and inside there laid a note

    “I’ve met your woman in the window
    the object of your human desire
    Now I’m having fits and I’m on the Fritz
    because I’ve come to know you as a liar.”

    How could I be so careless
    As to let her slip away
    A detectives work is never done
    This: my most important case
  • **VERSE**

    Met a little lady
    She was
    Quick to bite, a little crazy

    Didn't

    Say a word but I could tell
    I could tell
    She was in need of affection

    **PRECHORUS**
    Next thing I knew she was
    In my arms
    In my car
    In my bed

    **CHORUS**
    I've been infiltrated
    By a super spy
    I've been manipulated
    By a devil in disguise

    But I've been accustomated
    To her prowlin eyes
    Now I'm the Bonnie to her
    Clyde

    **VERSE**
    We go runnin out the backdoor
    'Hooo hoooo yeeeah)
    Under the howlin moon
    Hooo yeeeeah haaaah
    We're on the hunt, we'll get there soon
    'Hooo hoooo yeeeah)
    We're on the hunt, for something more
    Hooo yeeeeah haaaah

    Next thing I know
    I'm all alone

    **CHORUS**
    I've been infiltrated
    By a super spy
    I've been manipulated
    By a devil in disguise

    But I've been accustomated
    To her prowlin eyes
    Now I'm the Bonnie to her
    Clyde

    Oooooooooo yeaaaaaaaaaaaah

    **CHORUS**
    I've been infiltrated
    By a super spy
    I've been manipulated
    By a devil in disguise

    But I've been accustomated
    To her prowlin eyes
    Now I'm the Bonnie to her
    Clyde
  • Covert Coverup
    ————

    So she did the crime
    Sneaking through the night
    Dressed all in black
    Key pictures snapped

    But left some trace
    Led to disgrace
    Leaders up on high
    Were placed on trial

    No good defense
    The evidence
    Showed a shadow plot
    No one forgot

    CHORUS
    What do we do
    With this spy corrupt
    Feed her to the wolves
    Covert Coverup

    Trumped up charge
    Leader at large
    A patsy, a spy
    Female fall guy

    Paper’s front page
    Story all the rage
    Can’t dodge the charge
    Of espionage

    CHORUS
    How do we handle
    Try to disrupt
    Trial by fire
    Covert Coverup

    Sham courtroom scene
    Of the traitor queen
    Special Ops, covert
    Plot was all hers

    The pressure mounts
    Convict - all counts
    The DA worked it
    For a guilt verdict

    CHORUS
    Found a solution
    Courtroom erupts
    It was high treason
    A covert coverup
  • Always got a shadow to hide my face
    Always flying from place to place
    But no matter where I may roam
    The next rounded corner will be my home

    (Nobody's gonna know)
    I can fake it
    (I'm going it alone)
    I can take it.
    (Getting in my zone)
    I can't place it
    I ain't the type of guy to put it in your face so


    I won't say it's over
    Total nondisclosure
    I'll be gone just like the wind
    (You'll never know which me's the real me)

    Move along my mission
    Know what I am riskin
    Don't blink -
    I'm starting to blend in.
    (Yeah you'll never know which me is the real me. )

    Nondisclosure.
    Nondisclosure.
    Nondisclosuuuuure.
    Nondisclosure.

    This next mission is becoming clearer
    I gotta look at myself in the mirror
    Look at the different parts of me
    And choose which parts they can never see

    (Does anybody know?)
    I can fake it
    (Do my demons show?)
    I can take it.
    (Which way should I go?)
    I can't place it
    I ain't the type of guy to put it in your face so

    I won't say it's over
    Total nondisclosure
    I'll be gone just like the wind
    (You'll never know which me's the real me)

    Move along my mission
    Know what I am riskin
    Don't blink -
    I'm starting to blend in.
    (Yeah you'll never know which me is the real me. )

    Nondisclosure.
    Nondisclosure.
    Nondisclosuuuuure.
    Nondisclosure.

    Is it right or is it wrong, to feel like I don't belong?
    Not a passport I can see, an eternal refugee

    Cos I've died so many times, came up with so many rhymes
    Just to know somewhere I roam, will eventu'lly be home

    I just wanna break the glass, know that soon this mood will pass
    And reveal myself to you, and that I'll be happy too

    And be disclosed…

    I won't say it's over
    Total nondisclosure
    I'll be gone just like the wind
    (You'll never know which me's the real me)

    Move along my mission
    Know what I am riskin
    Don't blink -
    I'm starting to blend in.
    (Yeah you'll never know which me is the real me. )

    Nondisclosure.
    Nondisclosure.
    Nondisclosuuuuure.
    Nondisclosure.
  • The only life I've known is hidden
    Honesty and truth forbidden
    This existence isn't for everyone
    Some of us won't see another sun

    It's not a game it's really stealth
    For the good of my own health
    Always watching and on alert
    Chance is high of getting hurt

    Red dress, lipstick
    One step, be quick
    Don't speak, whisper
    Codename, sister

    We'd never reveal our secrets
    On the balconies seeking targets
    Constant threat, work is never done
    Mirrored in the barrel of a gun

    Red dress, lipstick
    One step, be quick
    Don't speak, whisper
    Codename, sister

    Burning
    Burning
    This plot is coming down
    Searching
    Searching
    When no one is around

    Red dress, lipstick
    One step, be quick
    Don't speak, whisper
    Codename, sister
    Red dress, lipstick
    One step, be quick
    Don't speak, whisper
    Codename, sister
  • Would you like to share a dance with me
    In the middle of the embassy ?
    Hold my hand
    Take it slow
    You can try all the moves that you know

    I’m from Berlin, Paris and La Paz
    I love painting, I sail, I play jazz
    Don’t be afraid
    If it’s too much
    The night may be short, but there’s no rush


    CHORUS
    Oh, tell me your secrets and more
    And dry your tears
    You just have to close the door
    I’m all ears

    I knew that my dress would fit your taste
    All you needed is a warm embrace
    Remind me
    Why you’re there
    And I’ll handle your feelings with care

    Let’s talk about what your dad persue
    Why would anyone mind if I knew ?
    Lose your mind
    Out of sight
    You are doing so many things right

    CHORUS
    Oh, tell me your secrets and more
    And dry your tears
    You just have to close the door
    I’m all ears


    BRIDGE
    You heart still racing, mine cold again
    I’ll leave at dawn to report to my men
    Sorry, my country tells me who to love
    When guns are off, you can’t trust the dove
    And we would have been great together
    But to me, you’re just someone’s daughter
    Too many have died chasing my tracks
    Once my mission’s done , you won’t get me back

    But for now,

    CHORUS
    Oh, tell me your secrets and more
    And dry your tears
    You just have to close the door
    I’m all ears
  • Just Another Face

    Just walk in like I belong here
    I got all my papers signed
    A smile, a nod, some small talk
    Then out of sight and out of mind

    I've memorized your passwords
    And I know all of your routines
    I'm in every little dead spot
    That your cameras can't see

    Suddenly it's like we never met
    Just another face you'll soon forget
    Got the feeling something's out of place
    I'm already half a world away

    No gunfights, no explosions
    Licensed to kill but not my style
    I can cause you far more damage
    With a briefcase and a smile

    By the time you know what hit you
    By the time you've lost it all
    Got a new name on my passport
    In some distant port of call

    Suddenly it's like we never met
    Just another face you'll soon forget
    Got the feeling something's out of place
    I'm already half a world away

    I am anywhere
    I am anyone
    Far more dangerous
    Than a loaded gun

    Are you on my list?
  • I wake up alone, to the ring of my phone
    Adventure is calling
    I wonder what new, challenge I'll face
    It never gets boring

    Sweet, the lab has a treat, I go down to meet
    Our Quartermaster
    He pulls out a gun, disguised as a pen
    The ballpoint blaster


    With a licence to kill
    And the deadliest skill
    Put an end to your thrill

    With a licence to kill
    While the night remains still
    All my chambers are filled


    Followed you around the world
    Jet-setting to and fro
    Before I tracked you down to the centre of Tokyo

    Time is up, it ends tonight
    You can run but cannot hide
    You can run but cannot hide


    I take a look out, then go in to scout
    Collecting some recon
    Now there's no time to waste, jump out of the plane
    With parachute strapped on

    Broke into your den, it's swarming with men
    Who locked me up bonded
    They think they have, caught me but that's
    Just what I wanted


    With a licence to kill
    And the deadliest skill
    Put an end to your thrill

    With a licence to kill
    While the night remains still
    All my chambers are filled


    Back to where it all began
    A fitting location
    Let's see what you have planned for our confrontation

    Time is up, it ends tonight
    You can run but cannot hide
    You can run but cannot hide


    With a licence to kill
    (And the deadliest skill)
    Put an end to your thrill
    (With a licence to kill)
    While the night remains still
    (All my chambers are filled)
    With a license, a license to kill


    Followed you around the world
    Jet-setting to and fro
    Before I tracked you down to the centre of Tokyo

    Time is up it ends tonight
    You can run but cannot hide
    (You can run but cannot hide)

    Back to where it all began
    A fitting location
    Let's see what you have planned for our confrontation

    Time is up it ends tonight
    You can run but cannot hide
    You can run but cannot hide
  • Why are you sneaking around,
    Keeping secrets I don't wanna hear,
    Make me feel like a spy
    Tip toe don't make a sound.

    I hear the door close at night,
    Too dark to catch any sight,
    Shadowing you from behind
    I know I shouldn't but…

    I want you to get caught,

    I'm checking all the mirrors,
    Your reflection isn’t clearer,
    Was this all just a lie
    ‘Cause this feels like a crime

    You're not warm anymore,
    Distant no emotions at all,
    What are you trying to hide?
    Why do I feel like a spy.

    I hear the door close at night,
    Too dark to catch any sight,
    Shadowing you from behind
    I know I shouldn't but…

    I want you to get caught,

    I'm checking all the mirrors,
    Your reflection isn’t clearer,
    Was this all just a lie
    ‘Cause this feels like a crime

    You double crossed me,
    Now you're with her,
    Avoided my,
    Starburst maneuver,
    Cracked your pattern,
    Without a cipher

    Caught red handed,
    Set on fire
  • *Gentlemen, we havent got time, so I'm gonna be brief.
    It is imperitive we infiltrate the G.O.B Listening Party.

    Don't bova me

    Good Job!*
  • I was not me when I met you
    How could I be I had yet to find
    Some peace of mind
    Or did I forget to
    Carry the weight back home

    Is it me who sees myself in you
    Or you who sees yourself in me
    Pieces of a distant star
    Cut out both from who we are
    And who we both pretend to be

    We’re just dreaming in this little lost world of ours

    You’re the piece I didn’t know was missing
    All this time spent listing at sea
    Rocking the lee side
    Looking in the distance
    For a shore to carry me back home

    Is it me who sees myself in you
    Or you who sees yourself in me
    Pieces of a distant star
    Cut out both from who we are
    And who we both pretend to be

    We’re just dreaming in this little lost world of ours

    Nothing and no one could come between
    The slipping seams of our lives
    Everything I understand was spoken to me from your sighs

    I lost you once but not again
    You’re my only friend when darkness comes
    A light that hums
    A voice lost to the wind
    Carrying me back home

    Is it me who sees myself in you
    Or you who sees yourself in me

    Is it me who sees myself in you
    Or you who sees yourself in me

    Is it me who sees myself in you
    Or you who sees yourself in me
  • The silence still it has a sound
    Growling through the visceral underground
    Seeking out the lost and found
    Crawling through false eiderdown

    Nothing left behind its wake
    What it gives it stands to take
    A final reckoning for all our sakes
    A bleeding heart won’t save the state of our union

    The giants of our nation screaming
    Grounding out the ones left dreaming
    Little now they can recall
    This is now our titanfall
    Feeble beings heed the call
    This is all their titanfall

    So tall they stood with hands outstretched
    Dragging the dregs for the lowest wretch
    Taking, taking ‘til there was nothing left
    False saviors of the mass bereft

    Money for mouths and vomitous lies
    Echoes of false, lamenting cries
    Drowned behind the vacuous eyes
    Of those they bought with their demise

    The giants of our nation screaming
    Grounding out the gloss and gleaming
    Little now they can recall
    This is now our titanfall
    Sallow beings heed the call
    This is all their titanfall

    The giants of our nation leaving
    Having killed the hope and grieving
    Little now they can recall
    This is now our titanfall
    Every being heeds the call
    This is all their titanfall
  • Uze apha phambi kwam, (You have come here before me,)

    Xhosa and Zulu translations by David John
  • Catalyst and charge
    We've decided
    All to break away

    Fortunes will forge
    And dreamers
    Will wake up twice today

    You'd knew it come down to this
    One way or another we'd resist
    Can't conquer and divide those that aim for the sky
    Bureaucrats with poisoned pens
    Narcissists and presidents can't look up this high
    We are the residents

    Raise the foundations
    Fire beneath us
    Up with the thunderbirds
    Preceding the storm
    The fracture and flight
    Ignition and thrust
    We throw off our masks
    Follow our hearts and transform

    You'd knew it come down to this
    One way or another we'd resist
    Can't conquer and divide those that aim for the sky
    Bureaucrats with poisoned pens
    Narcissists and presidents can't look up this high
    We are the residents
  • See that house right there ?
    Yes, this is the fruit of my labour
    Well, I never could quite enjoy it
    I’ve been peeved by terrible neighbours

    So let me tell you right off the bat
    Never call me, I don't have time to chat
    Won't give a shit about your family
    I just want some peace and tranquillity

    Seriously, we won’t be buddies …. it’s never gonna happen

    I don’t care if you’ve just moved in
    Your children’s better be behaving
    No knock, no noise ‘til I’ve had my coffee cup

    The less we interact, the better
    That’s not an advice, that’s an order
    Cause if you ruin my mornings, I'll come to fuck you up !

    (BASS SOLO ALERT!!!)

    HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
    HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
    HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
    HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!

    I won't bother you
    But if you ever get in my way
    I handle matters personally
    Won’t call the cops or the H.O.A.

    I know it’s not the welcome you’ve expected
    But this neighbourhood has to be respected

    I want silence until 10 am
    After that, everything is fair game
    If you happen to break that one rule
    I’m gonna kick your ass ‘til you drool

    I don’t care if you’ve just moved in
    Your children’s better be behaving
    No knock, no noise ‘til I’ve had my coffee cup

    The less we interact, the better
    That’s not an advice, that’s an order
    Cause if you ruin my mornings, I'll come to fuck you up !

  • The sun's up, but I am not
    Another day, cursing my lot
    My head is full, my mind is cloudy
    But I'm not sure, how to tell you bout it

    I'm trying, I swear I'm trying
    I don't think you think I'm lying
    But it feels like mutual destruction
    Searching for my pink perfection

    A silent rebellion
    Half hearted in action
    I can't even, get back at you
    I can't even, leave this room
    I can't even, get back at you
    I can't even, leave this room

    l feel so low and tired
    After all these months on the wire
    But it feels like mutual destruction
    Searching for my pink perfection
    But it feels like mutual destruction
    Searching for my pink perfection

    You won't stop pushing
    So I keep pulling away
    Despite both our wishes
    You're forcing me to stay
    I just want to be me
    And I just can't do that here
    The writing was on the wall
    I got the message loud and clear

    Fall asleep at 4 A.M.,
    Waiting for this to end
    Cause it feels like mutual destruction
    Searching for my pink perfection
  • Out here longing for sun
    Forgot all about the feeling of fun
    Cold days, they make me morose
    No scent to my yellow rose

    When I came here to take it all,
    I thought I’d cure my woes
    Atop my pile of treasures,
    I suffer through what I chose
    Like every silly boy I know,
    Chased the dream of grandeur
    Waiting for that very special person
    To come a-walking through that door

    Chained to my fate, weighed down by it all
    Reflections laugh at me, can’t stop picking this sore
    Hollowed out heart, seeking balm for my soul
    Running in London, to nowhere at all

    Disillusioned and numb
    Chew desperately on my thumb
    Breathing heaving, nothing left
    Legs like lead weigh me down
    Play the part of the clown
    Anything but deft

    Mired in the hell of regret,
    Like a tyrant upon his human throne
    If Jesus came on down right now,
    He’d slough my soul right down to the bone
    Like every worn-out adult I know,
    Chased the dream of grandeur
    Waiting for that very special person
    To come a-walking through that door

    Chained to my fate, weighed down by it all
    Reflections laugh at me, can’t stop picking this sore
    Hollowed out heart, seeking balm for my soul
    Running in London, to nowhere at all

    Chained to these faces, appear in the sun
    Dialectic of hating what I’ve become
    Killing and robbing and hearing the call
    Running in London, to nowhere at all
  • With no concept of what
    We would become
    This pact we sealed in blood
    It was up to us, my brothers

    These centuries that pass
    With us on the run
    Show nothing of our crimes
    We blend in yet we are none - together

    Who bows down
    To Gods unknown?
    A wasted youth and life I wish
    That I’d known better
    Whispers in the dark
    We were the ones who watched
    No questions asked, then it was done
    All cloak and dagger

    Haunted by their cries
    We didn’t recognize
    There were no laws of men nor monsters
    And now we lie awake
    Knowing history won’t speak
    Of a time before we were forgotten

    Some amongst us knew
    Deep down in their souls
    That they could not bear the weight and pain
    Of this, their cursed burden

    They forged their path alone
    Abandoned their own names
    You can feel them in the shiver creeping, crawling
    Through your bones at night

    Who breaks out
    And cuts their ties
    Leaving us behind and runs
    From the ones who were their makers?

    Haunted by their cries
    We didn’t recognize
    There were no laws of men nor monsters
    And now we lie awake
    Knowing history won’t speak
    Of a time before we were forgotten

    SPEAK NOT
    OF THINGS THAT YOU DON’T KNOW (I know more than you ever will)
    I AM POWERFUL
    AND WILL NOT BE IGNORED
    RUN HOME
    IF YOU HAVE A HOME AT ALL (We have a home with all our brothers)
    I AM FORMIDABLE
    AND I WILL LONG ENDURE

    OLD MAN (Young man)
    OLD MAN (Young man)
    WHY
    ARE
    YOU
    THE
    VOICE
    THAT’S
    IN
    MY
    HEAD

    Haunted by their cries
    We didn’t recognize
    There were no laws of men nor monsters (WHO CALLS FOR THEIR MONSTER?)
    And now we lie awake
    Knowing history won’t speak
    Of a time before we were forgotten (WE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN)

  • Oh,
    Am I in control?
    You lit a fire,
    yet I'm still cold

    I don't know why you drag me along, boss me around,
    Bury my feet in the sand, kick me when I'm down,
    Say you're right, I'm always wrong,
    You immoral, I hold my tongue
    Said we could be close forever,
    But you lit a match when I just wanted to ruffle some feathers


    Backseat driver but you won't listen,
    Watch a building burn and crispen,

    You have no regrets, I got a heavy conscience,
    You got your head in the clouds, my guilt makes me dishonest,

    You rope me in to tie a noose,
    I need to pull away from you,

    They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
    But never seeing you again makes me stronger


    Oh,
    don't you know,
    I'm sick of this show,
    Control me when I'm close,
    No more

    I gotta get away,
    Build myself up from this sorry state,
    Extinguish all your iniquitous flames,
    Anger and fire I must tame,
    Said we could be close forever,
    But you lit a match when I just wanted to ruffle some feathers,


    Backseat driver but you won't listen,
    Watch a building burn and crispen,

    You have no regrets, I got a heavy conscience,
    You got your head in the clouds, my guilt makes me dishonest,

    You rope me in to tie a noose,
    I need to pull away from you,

    They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
    But never seeing you again makes me stronger


    I never knew,
    Being alone could feel so good,
    You burned my life down to ash,
    But I can build something brand new,
    Nothing can weigh me down,
    I'm stronger not dragging you around,
    Without you I can be me,
    No more backseat arsonist,
    Rise from the ashes as a visionary


    Shackled no more,
    I gained control,
    Hate no more,
    I get by on my own

    I don't need you to listen,
    I got my own life, to your dissatisfaction,
    I do my best to right my wrongs,
    I see the light of a new dawn,
    You wanted to be close forever,
    But you lit a match when I just wanted to ruffle some feathers


    Backseat driver but you won't listen,
    Watch a building burn and crispen,

    You have no regrets, I got a heavy conscience,
    You got your head in the clouds, my guilt makes me dishonest,

    You rope me in to tie a noose,
    I need to pull away from you,

    They say distance makes the heart grow fonder,
    But never seeing you again makes me stronger


  • A man barely alive.
    We can rebuild him, we have the technology.
    We can make him better than he was before.
    Better, stronger, faster.

    Powered by bionic experiments
    Bass strings for ligaments
    Midi controllers for knees
    And teeth made of piano keys
    A first for music and science
    Pre-installed with a Kontakt license
    Arms that transform to saxophones
    A machine made of brass, tonewood and bone

    I bet you didn't know, Eefee, what we had planned
    Whatever you throw at me I can now withstand
    I'm the peak, the limit, of music technology
    Now it's your turn to be Report and Banned

    It's a polyphonic end to tyranny
    Revenge for last round and killing me
    All the plebs grabbed their lab coats
    And rebuilt me before I croaked
    Now I'm powered up like a Marshall amp
    Been programmed with classical, funk and rap
    Cybernetic infusion, the most powerful sound
    In case you haven't noticed I have the high ground

    I bet you didn't know, Eefee, what we had planned
    Whatever you throw at me I can now withstand
    I'm the peak, the limit, of music technology
    Now it's your turn to be Report and Banned
  • The hunt for the culprit
    Go on until the summit
    Chase down every clue
    One day I'll find you
    The looking glass
    Just magnifies the lies
    Resolution is due
    One day I'll find you

    The raindrops are falling to form a curtain
    It's hard to see through to the ground
    The only visions that I have are illusions
    Is it in front of my eyes or is it confusion

    Clouds in the sky are forming a blind
    Drawing images but they look uncertain
    The edges and surfaces are misaligned
    Are these pictures created in my mind

    The hunt for the culprit
    Go on until the summit
    Chase down every clue
    One day I'll find you
    The looking glass
    Just magnifies the lies
    Resolution is due
    One day I'll find you

    Do I hear you
    Can I see you
    Near me

    How long has it been since you've been so lost
    Will I ever see your friendly loyal face again
    The search party will go on at any cost
    To seek for that fluffy tail so soft

    The exploration calls for my best boots and hat
    Prepare for the chase pack my bags and coat
    The clues will lead me to where you are at
    Some day, one day, I'll find you, little kitty cat

    The hunt for the culprit
    Go on until the summit
    Chase down every clue
    One day I'll find you
    The looking glass
    Just magnifies the lies
    Resolution is due
    One day I'll find you

  • Watching the world burn, high above it all
    We let our pride take over, we were over duea fall
    So now the world is paying, people praying, all hope that they'll be worth
    saving, but the prayers are failing

    People tear themselves apart
    As I make an Aperol spritz
    And while below the riots start
    I run a bath

    And enjoy the Blitz
    Hope you enjoy the Blitz
    My own Bathroom Blitz

    A soft smile creeps across my face
    The distant bombing starts, but thefighting won't reach this place
    All this needless killing, blood is spilling, and still my soldiers are
    willing, to be the villain

    I can almost hear the screams
    Whilst I bathe I enjoy their pitch
    It's a soaring symphony
    Playing for me

    The soundtrack to the Blitz
    Hope you enjoy the Blitz
    My own Bathroom Blitz

    Enter my army
    In my bath of shame you can't harm me
    Dark opinions no one admits
    No innocent are to be found in

    My Bathroom Blitz
    And enjoy the Blitz
    The soundtrack to the Blitz
    Hope you enjoy the Blitz
    My own Bathroom Blitz
  • I left myself in a past
    Where my dreams were meant to last

    Since the day I lost my wits
    I haunt
    Palaces where only I can see the glitz

    And I wonder who I am
    In the lives behind
    Where I wouldn't have looked down
    Once the stars aligned

    So show me a way back to a fairytale
    Something I could see underneath the veil
    All I have are corridors with no rooms
    And the feeling my end looms

    Statues watch me on empty halls
    As my life comes to a stall

    Telling me I should have been more
    Like them
    That I kept closing down the doors

    And I wonder what I did
    In the lives behind
    If I figured out sooner
    I was undefined

    So show me a way back to a fairytale
    Something I could see underneath the veil
    All I have are corridors with no rooms
    And the feeling my end looms
    And the feeling my end looms

    Tell me there's a light
    Oh, tell me there's a fight
  • Citrine eyes defy the common knowledge of surprises
    Sparkling in the morning haze from which the sun arises
    Careful not to cause a certain feeling of unkindness
    Joyful in the future freedom from bedroom confinement
    Beauty often hides itself behind the simple vices
    Of color and complexion and the oils to combine them

    Yet in the eyes we see the soul shine on like crazy diamonds
    Kaleidoscopic infinites of facets to go blind in
    When in your eyes I see your soul shine on like crazy diamonds
    Kaleidoscopic infinites of facets to get lost in

    Certain destiny defied in finding no enlightenment
    But then again it should be said there’s nothing so divided
    And how can we define the actions of a simple wise man
    Were the actions of a human being so divine then?
    Funny how we praise the monster guarding all the mice when
    The good folk of the galaxy earn nothing but the pavement
    At least in pockets unaware grows up the understanding
    That future folk need us to thrive and stop the world from ending

    Yet in the eyes we see the soul shine on like crazy diamonds
    Kaleidoscopic infinites of facets to go blind in
    When in your eyes I see your soul shine on like crazy diamonds
    Kaleidoscopic infinites of facets to get lost in
    Yet in the eyes we see the soul shine on like crazy diamonds
    Kaleidoscopic infinites of facets to go blind in

    Walking alone on a summer’s day
    The wind in my hair, the salt in the spray.
    There you come along the way
    My heart beats fast but can’t run away
    It’s all about the way you are
    The style of dress, the type of car.
    Sends me reeling to the stars
    Pass the Moon and even Mars

    Lightly yellow with a dash of green
    La di dah… when your

    Citrine eyes, look into mine
    I don’t know what to do
    I find myself, a little blind
    When all I see is you
    Angel hair! Summer flair!
    I can’t help but be true
    When your Citrine eyes, look into mine
    I don’t know what to do

    Walking along on a summer’s day
    The wind in our hair, the salt in the spray.
    There we go along the way
    My heart beats fast but you’re here to stay
    And there it is, that little smile
    Tells me that you dig my style
    Hold my hand as we travel far
    Pass the Moon and even Mars

    Citrus lemon with a dash of lime
    Oh, so fine…when your

    Citrine eyes, look into mine
    I don’t know what to do
    I find myself, a little blind
    When all I see is you
    Angel hair! Summer flair!
    I can’t help but be true
    When your Citrine eyes, look into mine
    I don’t know what to do

    Citrine eyes be mine.
  • Without hope, without fear any more
    Like a hawk on the wing, I look down
    With a view, with a route into the depths, into the fire,
    A burning world I’ve found

    No one knows how to care, how to give back any more
    No one finds their way, they just fight on

    Without light, without shelter to survive
    Like it’s night, like I lost all my senses
    With a fire, with a torch held high, I don’t need to rely
    On anyone’s defenses

    No one knows how to care, how to give back any more
    No one finds their way, they just fight on

    A way to cut through all the noise of our brothers and our sisters
    Who now turn their backs on order and on decency
    A way to claim back all the things that we lost and never found
    Those relics of our past before the times we now see

    Oooh, look below
    Ooooh, build a home
    Oooh, desolation sings
    Ooooh, hope eternal springs…

    The way you look at me, from high up above

    And I can't always reach the top shelf
    Baby come a little lower
    Let me feel the heat of your breath

    I'm in love with a tall girl
    She wears the galaxy around her neck
    I wrap my arms around her waist
    Look up at the stars in her eyes

    I've never had a girl as striking as you
    Picture perfect in a size 13 shoe
    Baby take a knee, and tell me a secret
    Baby stay with me, you'll never be upset

    But I'm not a casanova
    And I can't always reach the top shelf
    Baby come a little lower
    Let me feel the heat of your breath

    I'm in love with a tall girl
    She wears the galaxy around her neck
    I wrap my arms around her waist
    Look up at the stars in her eyes
  • Well…

    I know you need
    A change sometimes
    I ain’t gonna promise
    We’ll have an easy life
    I see you out there
    In your old man’s Blazer
    I ain’t gonna
    Let you stay here


    We can make this life our own

    Get your rubber on the road
    Let me hear that motor hum
    I’ll pack up the little that I own
    Just promise me you’ll come


    We’ll traipse across a continent together
    A sea of dirt and rock
    Just keep driving ‘til forever
    Don’t even have to talk
    If we never find where we belong
    ‘Least I’ll be where you are
    Even when your eyes
    Are as distant as the stars


    We can take this world by storm


    Get your rubber on the road
    Let me hear that motor hum
    I’ll pack up the little that I own
    Just promise me you’ll come


    Even if
    Our hearts will drift apart
    You can find your way on back to me
    We’ll make it feel like home


    So get your rubber on the road
    Let me hear that motor hum
    I’ll pack up the little that I own
    Just promise me you’ll come

    There’s too many of us on the board
    Casualties I can afford

    (I’m just)
    I’m just a pawn
    (Black, white, black, white)
    (That’s all)
    That’s all they know
    (Black, white, black, white)

    I will have my way

    Opening gambit
    Passion for sacrifice

    Thinking I would play nice

    Black follows the lead

  • The Call of the Pipe Organ

    (Verse)
    Christmas lights on a lava lamp
    In a darkened corridor
    A snowstorm on a masquerade
    In central Florida

    Strawberry tea chamomile
    In an old daguerreotype
    Feel the rumbling within my soul
    When I hear the blaring pipes

    (Chorus)
    A rush in my heart, the power of art
    Now all the stops have been pulled out
    The roar of the time, a star in my mind
    That's what the pipe organ's about

    The call of the mass, a kiss from the blast
    Now all the stops have been pulled out
    The humbling pride, the greatest divide
    That's what the pipe organ's about

    (Verse)
    Speeding onwards through the æther
    An endless flight in space
    Quiet desperation of the
    Tesseract's glowing embrace

    Meaningless nouns and verbs
    Painting unneeded stripes
    Feel the rumbling within my soul
    When I hear the blaring pipes

    (Chorus)
    A rush in my heart, the power of art
    Now all the stops have been pulled out
    The roar of the time, a star in my mind
    That's what the pipe organ's about

    The call of the mass, a kiss from the blast
    Now all the stops have been pulled out
    The humbling pride, the greatest divide
    That's what the pipe organ's about

    (Solo)

    (Chorus)
    A rush in my heart, the power of art
    Now all the stops have been pulled out
    The roar of the time, a star in my mind
    That's what the pipe organ's about

    The call of the mass, a kiss from the blast
    Now all the stops have been pulled out
    The humbling pride, the greatest divide
    That's what the pipe organ's about
  • As we march into the gloom
    See the dark impending doom

    Breathing safely in the masks
    Avoiding gravely toxic gas

    Team of 4 assigned to take
    Enemy, they're not awake

    Air produces tingling spines
    Radiation suits us fine

    Impunity and we foresaw
    Immunity from the law

    Tasked to clear the radius
    High crimes on attack
    They call us the Masked Patriots
    aka the Nighttime Black
    Affecting all industries
    Protecting the ministries
    Offending the malcontent
    Defending the president

    Checkpoints by the monuments
    Poised to see your documents


    You know us by our alias
    and as savage maniacs
    They call us the Masked Patriots
    aka the Nighttime Black
    Being symbols of our nation's pride
    Overseeing police genocide
    Notoriety that we propagate
    The society of our head of state

    Cowards killed by covenant
    Empowered by the government
    Body piles growing higher
    Your god sees trials by fire

    Loyalists are traitorous
    We will be coming back
    They call us the Masked Patriots
    aka the Nighttime Black
    (Destroyers, we are dangerous
    Bodies, they are stacked
    They call us the Masked Patriots

  • Mirrors break in
    showers of silver
    Shards that cut deeper than
    skin we envision what it's like
    who would we have become?

    Let them rain like
    sharp steel kisses on my skin
    Maybe then I will recall
    Who I once was and my promise
    Wishing I
    could turn back time
    and repent

    Roads less traveled by
    Littered with shards of better lives
    Woes uncovered by
    My own reflection

    Roads unravelled by
    Ceasing life in denial
    Smoke and mirrors, lies
    Broken at last

    For how long...?

    Seeping from my spine like water
    If a man was born to be kind
    Then why am I still here?
    Is this
    a joke to you
    Or am I?

    Who would I be if I weren't a monster
    Would there be anything left?
    Could I (then) take a look at myself?
    Would it make
    A difference for me
    at all?

    Roads less traveled by
    Littered with shards of better lives
    Woes uncovered by
    My own reflection

    Roads unravelled by

    Smoke and mirrors, lies
    Broken at last
    For how long...?
  • Burn bright
    Entice and inspire
    You will never feel cold
    If I set the world on fire

    A pillar of light
    Colors the skies
    An incandescent sight
    Descends upon us

    Words fire like guns
    Blinding white
    Let the movements of tongues
    Set hearts alight

    Don't walk away
    Hide in plain sight
    They will not know
    There's nothing inside

    Show them smoke
    But not where it came from
    A human torch
    One can only dream of

    White hot lies
    Shower me with praise
    Right words make cyanide
    Like ambrosia taste

    Burn bright
    You're just a liar
    I will never feel cold
    If I set the world on fire

    A pillar of light
    Would uncover the lies
    A tower of smoke
    Is what I'll hide behind

    Say you're inspired
    Like you mean it
    Truth can be what
    You believe in
  • Verse 1
    Keep an eye out for the limo
    Jesus Christ is coming
    Wearing diamond studded garments
    And his skin, they say, is stunning
    Everybody clear a pathway
    The red carpet’s been rolled down
    He strolls into the theatre
    His entourage surrounds

    Pre-Chorus
    But behind the wave and blinding smile
    Is light that burns the eyes
    A glistening bit of salty water
    Welling up that does belie

    Chorus
    A perfect crystal world
    Insulated air
    Calculated fantasies
    For all the fans to share
    A perfect crystal world
    Undulating on a ledge
    Blurring all the emptiness
    That lies beyond the edge

    Verse 2
    In a hollow hotel room
    The ceiling feels so low
    Though there’s space enough for legions
    Still the walls, they seem to close
    The table makes him angry
    So he smashes it to bits
    Takes his knife and shreds the curtains
    Breaks the mirror with his fist

    Pre-Chorus
    He’ll pay for all his rage again
    It’s known with words unsaid
    Yet still the lasting loneliness
    Rings loudly in his head

    Chorus
    A perfect crystal world
    Insulated air
    Calculated fantasies
    For all the fans to share
    A perfect crystal world
    Undulating on a ledge
    Blurring all the emptiness
    That lies beyond the edge

    Bridge
    And if he falls, he fears
    There’s nothing but the void
    But maybe that’s the only
    Way to stop the noise
    Building grand illusions
    A double sided blade
    Surrounded by a gilded cage
    That he alone has made

    Pre-Chorus
    His mother used to tell him
    As mother’s sometimes do
    Be careful what you wish for
    Your wish might just come true

    Chorus
    A perfect crystal world
    Insulated air
    Calculated fantasies
    For all the fans to share
    A perfect crystal world
    Undulating on a ledge
    Blurring all the emptiness
    That lies beyond the edge

    And kick beneath the belt
    Kick in my teeth so my words aren't expressed

    So you compensate for feeling smaller?

    Afraid it'll fly and you'll get hurt
    Plucking feathers so yours shine brighter
    Peacock showing off stolen desire

    Knock them off the totem pole and swallow them
    If you were yourself no one would like you

    Are you that afraid of the truth?

    Why'd ya gotta cage a free bird
    Afraid it'll fly and you'll get hurt
    Plucking feathers so yours shine brighter

  • The door lies open to the tattered room
    It smells of stale smoke and cheap perfume
    What the hell happened here

    He's been fighting
    He's been drinking
    Gain of money
    Loss of thinking
    A wife was looking for her husband
    When he was found she couldn't bare the sight of him
    He's been cheating
    He's been gambling
    Winning envy
    Still he's rambling
    The husband told her it was okay
    But neither got to see another daybreak

    A dozen guys and dolls were with them there
    But no one saw a thing

    What the hell happened here
    It must have been premeditated
    What the fucking hell happened here
    They were undifferentiated

    What the hell happened here
    Lying there with his fondest
    What the fucking hell happened here
    He may have deserved this

    but she sure as hell didn't

    Gotta coordinate and do our jobs in time,
    Write words, play notes, and sing along

    Of those who sign up then just bail

    Beware the ones

    Synth ridden bells
    They come from hell

    To quell despair
    A devils disguise

    It’s Us vs. Them
    It’s Us vs. Them

    Don’t we deserve some attention?

    As long as you at least said something, maybe timing, had gone bad
    Given an excuse, an apology,
    Instead of just a song left rotting

    I’m very fucking furious

    They say sleep 8 hours a day
    I go for 3 or 12, that's my way
    No more than 3 cups of coffee, you say?
    I'm on my 9th already, it's child's play

    I'll never live in moderation, what a boring situation
    One step at a time ain't my way, I was born running, I fly today
    Save your money and be smart, a lame way to live, my life is art
    No mixing booze and drugs, I won't heed, watch me drink my weed infused mead
    You can't break me, can't stop me, can't slow me down, get out of town

  • Embers flicker in the evening dusk
    Beach side fires with me and my crush
    Our little group have been friends forever
    So we'll spend this summer together
    A beat up guitar to play our favourite song
    We all start to dance as we sing along
    The music plays and we can let it all out
    This is what summer is all about

    Long days of beautiful sun
    Warm nights of endless fun
    Here we can chill with our friends
    I hope this summer never ends
    In spring we didn't have a clue
    Come autumn we begin anew
    But here we can chill with our friends
    I hope this summer never ends

    It's getting late but we're not stopping yet
    Nights like this we won't forget
    Breaking curfew is our only crime
    Making memories to last a life time
    Late night swimming underneath the stars
    Skinny dipping like we have no past
    We laugh, we sing, we scream, we shout
    This is what summer is all about

    This is what summer is all about

    Long days of beautiful sun
    Warm nights of endless fun
    Here we can chill with our friends
    I hope this summer never ends
    In spring we didn't have a clue
    Come autumn we begin anew
    But here we can chill with our friends
    I hope this summer never ends
  • How long is it a hobby before it's a lifestyle?/
    Doing all this work just for virtual smiles/
    how long will you separate yourself from the masses?/
    Ruling and deciding for the lower classes/
    Ten years and still disfunctional
    Ten years (but at least we're now punctual)
    It's finally time we all unite forces
    I'll grab the pitchforks, (I'll get the torches)

    Watch out now, hear what we say
    We're swinging a giant hammer your way
    Using these sounds to knock down walls
    Coming for you, gonna watch you fall
    So raise your fist to the sky, and scream the words of our song
    We're the proles on parade, and together we're strong
    With our mics and our pens, and guitars on our backs
    We sing the song of the plebs, and we're on the right track

    Write our path, dunno where it led
    Open your eyes, get outta your head
    Ready. Set.
    Go the highest you can, jump to our arms.
    We're family, you won't be harmed
    250 rounds down, but we're never gonna stop
    Watch the clock as the hands go tick tock tick tock
    BOOM and another round of bangers hit the internet
    The Plebs show the world what they've got
    Think you can divide us and split us into teams
    We are all together, we are the dream
    Hear us roar and scream this track is extreme
    This music is art and this art is supreme
    So now we rise up in turquoise skies
    Alight with our fire inside, eyes open wide
    Facing down the final boss, the first-class warriors
    Fear not the Goliath for the many won’t fall

    Alone I feel like a used kazoo
    But together we're a sax, shiny and new
    Grooving like a drummer with brand new sticks
    And jumpin' around like vibraphone licks
    Stronger than the steel strings on a guitar
    And our cello bows glow like a new born star
    United orchestra
    Our song bursts to life!

    You mods can form your super team
    But we are the plebs, so hear us scream
    We march on, no matter the theme
    We are the plebs, we are the dream




    Thank you each and every one of you for going on this journey with me, for taking a naive idiot's silly idea and letting it become a reality. Special thanks to Wizzieh and Bob for being a big part of organizing this and extra special thanks to Bob again for mixing this beast!
    Each and every pleb on this track left a part of their soul on it, no part is small, everyone gave what they could and each and every one of you is a hero, don't you ever dare to think of yourselves as anything else, you're all amazing and I am humbled to be a part of this magical art.

    One final tiny thing, a message to our lovely hardworking and dedicated mod team:
    Quoting mr. Perfect_Fifth_Note: "Make a song that you think will be better than the song the mods make. You have an extra week because we, in our wisdom and grace, have decided to give you all an extra week to come up with something truly spectacular."

    To this we answer:
    Are you not entertained?!
  • Pray for me as I
    Pray for me as I
    Strike out one more time
    Against the mighty condor

    They say the taller the man, the harder they fall
    Whoever said that failed to account for the gun

    Words fail to form on mother’s tongue
    Foreign to my covered ears, blindfolded eyes
    Going back to go forward, rediscover culture unified
    Consternation over the wrong kind of self-determination
    Zealotry the mask for jealousy, painting in blood

    So the dawn will rise, one bullet at a time
    The innocent ascend to heaven
    So the dream will die, as lies fill all their ears
    The condor blacks out ashen sky

    Consternation over the wrong kind of self-determination
    Zealotry the mask for jealousy, painting in blood

    So the dawn will rise, one bullet at a time
    The innocent ascend to heaven
    So the dream will die, raise the stars and stripes up high
    The condor blacks out ashen sky
  • ---Return of the King---

    (Littlestreaminthewoo)
    How long has the king been away?
    It looks the same
    But day by day

    Promises feel like empty threats
    unsettled debts
    Cold regret

    Where's the fan fair?
    Where's my queen?
    What time is the parade?
    I saved this place
    From its shallow dreams
    From drowning under their weight

    Hallow ground and old buildings
    don't have memories
    don't remember me

    Familiar strangers where once stood friends
    Under time's a lens
    they break and bend

    Where's the fan fair?
    Where's my queen?
    What time is the parade?
    I saved this place
    From its shallow dreams
    From drowning under their weight

    They're still gather where I would presided
    Where Its warm inside
    the crowd shuffles by

    In certain light the illusion persists
    till I catch a glimpse
    my reflection

    ---Morning Glory---

    (jestbubbles)
    what's the matter now morning glory
    The fairy tale failed to tell the story
    When the big ideals didn't translate

    (littlestreaminthewoo)
    Where's the fan fair?
    Where's my queen?
    What time is the parade?
    I saved this place
    From its shallow dreams
    From drowning under their weight

    (jestbubbles)
    All together now we can make it
    Don't hold too tight or you might break it
    One bright morning we'll all fly away

    On wings of sky
    through the boundless nights
    to where the stars rises
    to greet the day
    Up there you'll see
    The truth in me
    What I tried to be
    as we drift away

    but don't let it slip away

  • I have tried and cannot be you
    I could never be that cruel
    Who took you down
    And left you feeling like such a fool

    Does it make you feel
    A little more real to be
    A bleeding stone
    Who doesn’t find meaning in being alone

    We are not the same
    I don’t bear your name
    I don’t look for anyone else I can blame for my lies
    We are not the same

    You steal what you can’t take
    Blame her for your mistakes
    You never learn
    Leaving your fires to burn her down

    Doesn’t make a world of difference
    If I could fix every instance
    Of solitude
    You make her feel when you wanted to

    We are not the same
    I don’t bear your name
    I don’t look for anyone else I can blame for my lies
    We are not the same

    We are not the same
    I don’t bear your name
    I don’t look for anyone else I can blame for my lies
    We will never be the same
  • I dream of you in starlight
    Under some foreign sky
    Your head rests on my shoulder
    And curls tight into my chest
    I've not spoken for a minute
    Just here counting your breaths
    Awaiting the perfect moment
    For everything to change

    I think it's moving too fast
    Can't let a good thing last
    In your current I'm happy to drown
    I don't want this to slow down

    Will you share your cigarettes
    And tell me all your secrets
    Or wait until the end of the night
    Tell me how you suddenly feel alive
    I wanna run away with you
    In some far off place glowing blue
    Where they black out city lights
    So you can look up and see the sky

    I think it's moving too fast
    Can't let a good thing last
    In your current I'm happy to drown
    I don't want this to slow down

    Let the walls come down
    Let the stars shine down
    Let our hands clasp tight
    And kiss me under a million lights
  • I'm stuck in a circle
    an orbital drain
    Passing up dreams
    again and again
    The pills make me foggy
    I'm numb and I'm dumb
    My shanty is a mess
    and I've drank all my rum
    Forget all your troubles
    Forget all your past
    Is what the therapist told me
    So I kicked his ass
    Threw me in the psych ward
    and I had a blast
    the drugs were way better
    I had a free pass

    Our days are running out
    I shouldn't drown them out
    Head like a rolling pin
    Flattening out what we pretend is
    a perfect fucking life
    just a facade to conceal our strife
    No riches could pull me out now
    No wonder I'm burning out now

    Willfully brain dead
    Don't be so naive
    What's really happening
    Who do we believe
    The pills make me foggy
    I'm numb and I'm dumb
    Turn on the TV
    Lock up the guns
    My brain is draining
    Through my ears
    From everything I hear
    My greatest fear
    Is that I’m already done for.

    Our days are running out
    I shouldn't drown them out
    Head like a rolling pin
    Flattening out what we pretend is
    a perfect fucking life
    just a facade to conceal our strife
    No riches could pull me out now
    No wonder I'm burning out now

    No wonder I’m burning out now.
    (I mean, come on, no wonder)
    The days feel so fast and so slow,
    And at this point, I don’t know
    If it’s my pills or what’s actually in my mind.
    Is everyone feeling this?
    (You’re alone, it’s just you)

    They want to shut us up
    Free thought is diseased
    put your mind in a cage
    and program it as they please
    They want to strip us bare
    Coming in for the kill
    We are all sitting ducks
    Enjoy the pills enjoy the pills

    Our days are running out
    I shouldn't drown them out
    Head like a rolling pin
    Flattening out what we pretend is
    a perfect fucking life
    just a facade to conceal our strife
    No riches could pull me out now
    No wonder I'm burning out now
    (Our days are running out)
    No wonder I'm burning out now
    (I'm burning out)
  • More Than Just the Girl, Pt. 1 & 2

    Pt 1

    (Verse)
    The way they treat you is criminal
    When you're just trying to be kind
    And your conscience is liminal
    Winning hearts and blowing minds

    If they'd only get to know you
    Then it's love that they'd observe
    If they can't look past your eyes
    Then they'll get what they deserve

    (Pre-Chorus)
    There's a lot in my head
    But this I know is true
    I'm talking to myself
    Even when I'm saying "you"

    I just wanna be more
    Than the stories they told
    It's these voids in my eyes
    They take over my soul

    (Chorus)
    I shout this out to the world
    I'm more than just the girl
    I hope that you realize
    I'm more than just the girl
    With the keyhole eyes

    (Solo)

    (Pre-Chorus)
    All my family and friends
    They help to keep me sane
    They tell me not to fret
    'Bout the kills to my name

    But with holes in my head
    And with blood on my hands
    Do I deserve the love
    That I get from this land?

    (Chorus)
    I shout this out to the world
    I'm more than just the girl
    I hope that you realize
    I'm more than just the girl
    With the keyhole eyes

    Pt 2

    (Solo)

    I'm a little enigma
    I'm a terror that you love
    I'm an ESP user
    I'm a sign from above

    I'm a good little sister
    I'm a student and daughter
    I'm the whip of the sinners
    I make blood run like water

    I'm a contradiction
    I'm a roll of the dice
    I'm conflicted and confused
    I try everything twice

    I'm the past and the future
    I'm the earth and the skies
    And I'm the little girl
    With the keyhole eyes
  • Mod abuse
    Fast and loose
    Round and round like a hangman's noose

    Where's the proof?
    What's the use?
    Green names need not a damn excuse

    Like faded diamonds
    And melting ice
    Blurred horizons
    It's a fool's paradise

    Us mods, we gaze down
    At you mortal hordes
    We're gods, we have been crowned
    The GOB overlords

    We watch with wisdom
    As players spar
    It's a feudal system
    That will leave you scarred

    Aspire (and get shot down)
    High flyers (are brought to ground)
    Requires (a full lockdown)
    Deniers (will miss a round)

    Discussing amongst us,
    Never-ending we steer, from conflict to detente
    We ask you to trust us,
    Pretending to hear, then doing just what we want
    Appealing for justice,
    Condescending sneers, which proves us nonchalant
    Replying with brusqueness,
    Offending overseers, undiplomatic, overtly blunt

    No endorsement
    of illegal posts
    Rule enforcement
    Discipline imposed

    With dreams of greatness
    We lure you in
    Promotions shameless
    And team ruin

    The discord dwellers
    Can't bear the truth
    The council elders
    Do not approve

    Disorder (will be replaced)
    Record her (in every grace)
    Impartial (by martial law)
    Don't harsh us or she'll end you all

    Submitting amongst us
    Never-ending we fear the fey debutante
    We ask you to trust us
    Defending you here, but we put up a front
    Upholding her justice
    Condescending veneer; this isn't what we want
    We're dying to tell you

    Garrett's gone away, good_dean can collude no more

    Chex and rini tried to hide, but she kicked 'em out the door

    She was keeping us near to obfuscate the plot
    We beg your forgiveness

  • Welcome my dear, What do you require?
    To look prettier, or a different desire?
    Did he bruise your skin? Your husband, I mean
    Well I've got just the thing, he'll go, serene

    It's what he deserved
    He should have behaved
    I won't let the ladies go silent
    No more

    Please come in, let's see what you need
    Your man cheats, you say? A pig, indeed
    No worries, she won't stick around
    He won't cheat, six feet in the ground

    I just sell makeup to the ladies
    A way to calm down all their worries
    This one cheats!
    This one drinks!
    This one beats!
    They will all pay for misbehaving
    What I do is lifesaving
    They will all die for enslaving
    The women deserve saving

    Greetings darlings, how may I assist?
    Your husband did what?! The twist
    And yours, you say? Oh no way in hell
    I have what you need, time to say farewell

    Don't worry, no one will know
    Just put a little in his drink
    And you, in his soup it can go
    It won't be too painful, I think

    I just sell makeup to the ladies
    A way to calm down all their worries
    This one cheats!
    This one drinks!
    This one beats!

    They will all pay for misbehaving
    What I do is lifesaving...
  • I put on my faux leather jacket
    Don't care about you if you're not attractive
    I neg just to see how the girls reacted
    Damn, it's so fun
    Punch up, punch down, it's all still funny
    I flex my gains and I flash my money
    But tonight I'll let you be my hunny

    I'm your favourite type of scum
    I'm God's gift to all women
    You won't like me come tomorrow
    Long goodbyes just feel so hollow

    Go ahead pretend you're disgusted
    With your friends, you keep that façade up
    I always know the girls that are down to fuck
    Damn, it's all of them
    A lone wolf I don't need no pack
    Gimmie red head, brunette, blonde or black
    I don't tend to see above the rack
    Damn, just gimmie some

    I'm your favourite type of scum
    I'm God's gift to all women
    You won't like me come tomorrow
    Long goodbyes just feel so hollow

    [SOLO]

    I know that the way I act is strange
    But I like who I am and I'll never change
    Not until you lock me up in chains
    Damn, let's go again

    I'm your favourite type of scum
    I'm God's gift to all women
    You won't like me come tomorrow
    Long goodbyes just feel so hollow

  • VERSE 1:
    Well, you just saw the evidence
    I hope you won't call it a crime
    Never had an inheritance
    But, you better knock next time !

    You see, it has always been my thing
    That's not the stuff you say out loud
    Yeah, I draw boobs for a living
    And for a pretty big crowd

    CHORUS :

    Your red cheeks
    Are see-through
    I used to feel embarrassed too
    Rehearsing the day I'll tell you
    Questioning the stuff I'm into

    But one day
    It's been clear
    We all have dirty thoughts up here
    So no point in living with fear
    And now I've made it my career

    VERSE 2:

    I guess it all started with Liara
    Y'know, that blue chick from that space game
    Doodled her once without a bra
    Then it got a little fame

    That job is not a fantasy
    Those guys paid me my tuition
    Commissions, they just come endlessly
    Despite the competition

    It's just art
    Don't be stunned
    My little place in the sun
    The day, I act like a nun
    At night, I have all my fun

    And your cheeks
    Are still red
    Close to the tears that I've shed
    Questions still rushing in your head
    I won't let a thing be unsaid

    oooo-oo-oooooo

    Suddenly
    I saw you smile when you came to me
    I was free
    When you whispered you like what you see
    Suddenly
    I saw you smile when you came to me
    I was free
    When you whispered you like what you see

    This will be my last
    Rodeo
    (Don’t let the door hit you, boy

    Don’t let the door hit you, boy
    Come back when you are a man)

  • Lat night I found my co-pilot
    I could slide right into her cockpit
    I've got the thrust, she'll work the joystick
    We're going down, just the way I like it

    This girl, she's my weakness
    Victoria couldn't keep her secrets
    Duh-Double D's got me stuttering speechless
    Invade my dreams, let's make the night sleepless

    Ahhhh yeah, what shes got
    Ahhhh yeah, it can't be taught
    Ahhhh yeah, Is all I want
    Girl I'm yours completely, Oh baby please complete me

    Me and her fit like pieces of a puzzle
    But it's not like me to make it so subtle
    So why keep these entendres to double
    Bring a friend and start some real trouble

    What she has, no man could pass
    Her ass is at the top of its class
    She's graduating magna cum laude
    Oh girl, wont you make me come loudly

    Ahhhh yeah, what shes got
    Ahhhh yeah, it can't be taught
    Ahhhh yeah, Is all I want
    Girl I'm yours completely, Oh baby please complete me

    I'm done with the innuendo
    I'm ready to come in her window
    And bring her to crescendo
    Bathe in the after glow

    Ahhhh yeah, what shes got
    Ahhhh yeah, it can't be taught
    Ahhhh yeah, Is all I want
    Girl I'm yours completely, Oh baby please complete me

  • Mmm hmmm
    Let's lock the door
    That's right
    Show me what you like


    It's the way you use your body
    When you move so slowly
    And the desire in your gaze
    When you stare so intently
    It's the hunger
    It's the desperate craving
    It's the breathless way
    You whine when I say


    I want to hear you moan
    I want to see you sweat
    I want to trace your curves
    I want to taste your breath
    I want to kiss your neck
    I want to be what you desire
    I want to feel you move
    It's just the way I'm wired


    With just one glimpse
    I'm tantalized
    Show me every inch
    There's no reason to hide
    It's your sweet mouth
    Your artful hands
    The way you burn
    To claim a man


    I want to hear you moan
    I want to see you sweat
    I want to trace your curves
    I want to taste your breath
    I want to kiss your neck
    I want to be what you desire
    I want to feel you move
    It's just the way I'm wired

    I want to hear you moan
    I want to see you sweat
    I want to trace your curves
    I want to taste your breath
    I want to kiss your neck
    I want to be what you desire
    I want to feel you move
    It's just the way I'm wired

    Bridge (1:47)
    You tell such alluring lies
    With your lips and your eyes
    Just tell me what you want
    With your hips—


    I want to hear you moan
    I want to see you sweat
    I want to trace your curves
    I want to taste your breath
    I want to kiss your neck
    I want to be what you desire
    I want to feel you move
    It's just the way I'm wired

    Oooohhh yes
    You know what I like
  • MENACE

    (Verse)

    When I was young, I just couldn't sit still

    My arms and legs, they had their own will

    I was a good kid, didn't mean no trouble

    But it was so fun turnin' things to rubble!

    (Chorus)

    So here I come, gunna have myself a ball!

    I'm a little menace and you love me through it all!

    (Verse)

    Got my slingshot, and I shoot it up high

    Oops, I didn't mean to hit you in the eye!

    Hear me giggle as I skate on down the hall

    And see me smile as I scribble up the walls!

    (Chorus)

    Oh here I come, gunna have myself a ball!

    I'm a little menace and you love me through it all!

    (Bridge)

    (Wordless nyah-nyah's and la-la's imitating a child mocking you)

    (Solo)

    (Chorus)

    Yeah here I come, gunna have myself a ball!

    I'm a little menace and you love me through it all!

    (Verse)

    When I come inside, I leave mud on the floor

    I wake you up at night when I slam the door

    I love hitting things with my baseball bat

    Oh me? I didn't pour red paint on your hat!

    (Chorus)

    Oh here I come, gunna have myself a ball!

    I'm a little menace and you love me through it all!

    Gunna have myself a ball!

    I'm a little menace and you love me through it all!

  • I sneaked into your place the other day
    I stole your PS5 and your Chardonnay
    And your favourite mug
    Is now my ashtray

    I tore off the last page of the novel you’re reading
    Your table’s wobbly cause I did some tweaking
    I called the caterer
    He’s off your wedding

    Should have paid me back
    (Woops !)
    You keep forgetting
    Well I won’t cut you any slack
    That money was mine
    (Woops !)
    Even if it was
    Only 9 dollars 99

    It’s a matter of respect
    Now you see the dots connect

    Your favourite snacks have been gone from the store
    Cause the whole stock has been filling my drawers
    You reap what you saw
    Now you're losing the war

    I've put glue in your bath and Legos in your shoes
    And I've spammed your Yelp page with horrible reviews
    I've let you plenty of time
    But you didn't catch my cues

    Your reaction to this has been less than subpar
    It's just a couple drinks I've paid you in this bar
    Just give me the bucks, man,
    I've been patient so far

    All I gotta say is...
    Woops !
  • Do I make you nervous?
    Are you intimidated by my charm?
    Keep warmth in like a thermos,
    Reciprocation isn't lukewarm,
    Do you get jealous?
    That I won't soothe the place that's tended my your arm?

    Well if only you were bolder,
    And could ignite a smoulder,
    You could hold me in your arms,
    But your initiative does no harm

    Is that tool for multipurpose?
    Would you prefer a hammer, drill or screw?
    We could burn up like a furnace
    Me melting into you
    Does that thought give you purpose?
    Release from feeling blue,

    Well,
    If only you were nicer,
    And a little bit wiser,
    You could hold me in your arms,
    But your initiative does no harm,

    Oh
    You never communicate well,
    That's what leaves your heart scarred,
    Are you even thinking with the right head?
    Or is it that hard?

    Did you listen?
    To everything I said?
    Now you have thoughts,
    You want to embed
    And your conclusion?
    You want me to crescendo in your bed?

    Well,
    Since you ask so nicely,
    I'll tell you precisely,
    How to hold me in your arms,
    Since your initiative did no harm
  • I see you looking at me
    following me along

    Your eyes fixated on me
    for a second too long

    I saw you walk in
    And I held my breath

    If I follow my desire,
    Will it be my death?

    I know all they say
    You are not good for me

    You play around with all
    You and me could never be

    But you stand close to me
    And I feel like I'm going crazy

    Your hand below my waist
    All reason is erased

    You whisper in my ear
    "You wanna leave this place?"

    You know what I wanna hear
    I feel my heart race

    I will give in
    I will give in
    I will give in
    I will give in
    Give in to it all

    We kiss in the doorway
    No room for taking it slow
    Your lips trace my body
    I feel my desire grow

    My shirt comes undone
    Your vest is on the floor
    Your fingers linger
    We both want more

    Your hand touching me
    A sudden shiver, anticipation
    I try to hold back but,
    I want the whole sensation

    You stop and tease
    I follow you to the bed
    You push me down
    You make me go mad

    One hard thrust and you're done
    What the fuck that was no fun
    I leave the room I'm not satisfied
    And I wonder if I'll find

    Some satisfaction
    I want some satisfaction
    Give me satisfaction
  • You know just what I like
    Let's stay up all night
    I can't wait to dig into you
    to watch you melt as I consume
    Vivid dreams of your sweet kiss
    I can't help but reminisce
    Walking down that isle bright
    with color and fluorescent lights

    You make me scream for you
    Who else have you done this to?
    Spoil me like you always do
    Oooh you make me scream for you
    Baby I'm addicted to a deadly sin
    I never want cream without sugar again
    You'll make a diabetic out of me in the end
    Oooh you make me scream for you...

    I've become a slave for you
    I need help to tie my shoes
    Sticky chin and sticky lips
    I'm getting high on Reddi Whip
    Let me do the work tonight
    I've got room for one more pint
    You and Me, All alone
    With chocolate and a waffle cone

    You make me scream for you
    Who else have you done this to?
    Spoil me like you always do
    Oooh you make me scream for you
    Baby I'm addicted to a deadly sin
    I never want cream without sugar again
    You'll make a diabetic out of me in the end
    Oooh you make me scream for you...
  • Since I was young, it seemed to me
    that boys were never int'resting.
    The way they peacocked, so annoying;
    tedious, so childish, boring.

    In highschool things began to change
    when I took art, eleventh grade.
    The teacher, he was old enough
    to be my father, and yet I was

    enthralled the way he spoke of paintings,
    sculpture, form and human failing.
    When at last we covered bodies
    I wished that his was pinning me.


    It's not that complicated.
    I don't need a shrink.
    Just tell me I'm your good girl
    and I'm eager to please.


    Next I took a summer class.
    A course I needed just to pass.
    I can't remember what he taught
    because the room was just so hot.

    I thought perhaps AC was broken.
    I found it kinda hard to focus.
    I'd melt into a little puddle
    as he'd roll up his sleeves.


    It's not that complicated.
    I don't need a shrink.
    Just tell me I'm your good girl
    and I'm eager to please.

    Oh I don't have a complex;
    there's just something I like
    about a man who looks like he
    knows how to knot a tie.

    I always did my homework
    and readings all ahead.
    I'm cashing in my brownie points
    For time with him instead.


    As I got a little older
    I liked to play a little bolder.
    He knew that he could never have me
    but I liked to make believe.

    In lecture I would bat my eyes,
    stretch my skirt across my thighs.
    I'd catch him sneaking secret glances;
    I'd sit and spread and tease.


    It's not that complicated.
    I don't need a shrink.
    Just tell me I'm your good girl
    and I'm eager to please.

    It's not that complicated.
    I don't need a shrink.
    Just tell me I'm your good girl
    and I'll be on my knees.
  • Good evening, I'm very pleased to meet you
    For the next few hours, I will be your teacher
    I'm gonna show you things you've never seen before
    And you'll be back tomorrow night begging for more

    (Lose control) The silk and the steel
    (Lose control) Give in to the feeling
    (Lose control) Tonight you're mine
    (Lose control) Let me take you high

    Pull the ropes a little tighter
    I know you like it that way
    If you think that it's too much
    Then baby you know what to say
    The sound of racing breath
    My fingers on your neck
    When I'm done with you, you're gonna be a mess

    (Lose control) You're gonna be a mess
    (Lose control) You're gonna be a mess

    Take a second, catch your breath
    You went so high, you're not coming down yet
    A quiver in your thigh, your knees are getting weak
    You look so good with that flush on your cheeks

    (Lose control) The silk and the steel
    (Lose control) Give in to the feeling
    (Lose control) Tonight you're mine
    (Lose control) Let me take you high


    Pull the ropes a little tighter
    I know you like it that way
    If you think that it's too much
    Then baby you know what to say
    The sound of flesh on flesh
    My fingers on your neck
    Oh baby when I'm done with you, you're gonna be a mess

  • Here's your escape plan:
    A single seat away from your man
    But they say not to ride the iron grasshopper
    some morals imposed by morphine and pill poppers
    The very same who tell us how to climax
    With the gentleness of a hand full of thumb tacks
    You wanna fingerbang a few folks out of hysterics
    Then switch to a twelve volt like it's less barbaric
    It's all humble and pleasing to the lord
    The more holy, the more bored, the more freedom, the more whores
    And if we're on our way to gomorrah and sodom
    Shut the hell up and get on bottom
    because who wants only missionary
    go fuck yourself if you're so traditionary


    Know your place
    Why don’t you chew your gum?
    Why don’t you close your legs?
    Why don’t you look just like us?
    And for what?
    Why can’t we raise our seat?
    Why can’t we put on socks
    and have some fun?
    Every hundred years we are on repeat
    We love jumping on a bike with no seat


    You wanna talk about being fragile and tainted?
    Fuck you. How is that for dainty?
    You can’t be a chef without eating a few meals
    Doesn’t stop priests from telling us what to feel
    They all talk like we’re so immoral
    Should be no quarrel, rainbows and floral
    Head to toe, no skin exposed
    Liberty and frocks juxtaposed
    You wish we walked around carrying a baby rattle
    And rather we ride this bitch sidesaddle
    It’s all wrong and so are you
    For having a brain, it’s the truth, I wish you knew
    How backwards your way of thinking is
    You’re just bringing us down for your convenience
    You say there’s no place in this world for science and sex
    But it’s you who are wrong, it’s you who make no sense
    These spokes breaking through and fucking up your head


    (Why don’t you) know your place?
    Why don’t you chew your gum?
    Why don’t you close your legs?
    Why don’t you look just like us?
    And for what?
    Why can’t we raise our seat?
    Why can’t we put on socks
    And have some fun?
    Every hundred years we are on repeat
    like we love jumping on a bike with no seat

    (Why don’t you) know your place?
    Why don’t you chew your gum?
    Why don’t you close your legs?
    Why don’t you look just like us?

    Why can’t we raise our seat?

    Why don’t you use your feet?
    Why don’t you mind your business?
    Just like you

    Here’s my escape plan
    Here’s my escape plan
  • I like to lick it real slow, before it disappears
    The ice cream was a delight, same as dinner, cheers
    Time to head home, no coffee, it's far too late
    Don't demand stuff now, there is no debate

    You asked to pay for the meal, I owe you nothing
    I'm not a business transaction, darling

    Don't get mad now, honey
    Won't make me care, baby
    I've got no time, sugar
    Go find another lady


    It was so nice and smooth, going in
    Tasted just how I like it, truly amazing
    Now, why are you still here, ruining my view
    You asked to pay for my drink, I didn't ask for you

    I didn't ask for a drink, I owe you nothing
    I'm not a business transaction, darling

    Don't get mad now, honey
    Won't make me care, baby
    I've got no time, sugar
    Go find another lady


    It's exactly how I want you to slap it real hard
    Thank you for that bass track, I don't want your card
    Oh, you think this was about you? can't be more wrong
    I paid for what you've done, but this is my song

    I didn't ask for more, I owe you nothing
    I'm not a business transaction, darling

    Don't get mad now, honey
    Won't make me care, baby
    I've got no time, sugar
    Go find another lady


    You think you can handle me? Think again, keep trying if you want some emotional pain
    Don't get cute and don't think you stand a chance, cause there's no way that you're gonna get this dance with me
    It's always all about me, I'm truly free and the dragonfruit doesn't fall far from the tree
    Don't dare call me Sal, babe, I aint your pet, the name is Salomé, honey and don't you forget
    You want this fruit? You can't get it, brute, you aren't so cute, this you can't refute
    I live for me, breath for me, sing, dance and please for me, no one can do quite what I do like me
  • What are you doing?!
    Get away from it!
    It's mine!
    This
    Is
    My
    Baguette!

    You know that my baguette is the biggest of all
    No, it's mine, what are you talking about?
    Shh, it's not your turn just yet, I'm talking
    But it's my baguette too, ya know
    Not until it's your turn it isn't

    If you want to touch my baguette, you should beg real nice
    I might let you eat a bit, but don't bite no you idiot why would
    Of course it's better when I'm in control to play with the baguette
    Maybe me, not you, yes them, worry not there's enough for all

    One mind, one body, one baguette, we share
    One baguette, one body, one mind
    It's so hard, what why are you looking at me, us like that? No not the baguette you moron the sharing is hard!
    Well maybe also.....
    where were where whe were was we? I?

    Ugh
    Oh
    Ok

    My baguette
    No, mine
    Get off I own it
    Yes, yes, it is
    My baguette, big and hard

    I don't need your croissant
    We have no use for your buns
    Go away with that wha, wha, what the cupcake?!
    This makes no sense, give space to my baguette!

    You wish you had it, I know you want, this is what you
    I guard it I save from all of you, you cannot touch
    If you want, if dare, give the code my password
    You don't know it cause it's mine and you can't have what I own oh yes

    It can take you places you can't dream of
    Break the walls you only hoped, dread, dreamed yes
    But cause it's mine no, it's not yours, you cannot but want, wish, beg, think
    No the thinking is wrong we must not do, cannot let them steal don't
    It's my baguette and none elses, get outta my brain

    This baguette holds all the power, superheroes are not needed
    It's the sword, spear, gun, lightsaber, deathray, I'm unbeatable
    Can't mess with me, can't mess, not, no me, who? Yes! Cannot deal with us no who?
    Nothing can ever beat the power that is my baguette and you are same as rest

    I'll wrap you up in the baguette and no one will ever be able to hurt you
    I'll shove my baguette so deep in your throat you will never need to eat again
    I'll slap you with this baguette so loud that it will wake Azathoth from their sleep
    I'll put this baguette so deep in you whoever can get it out will be crowned king Arthur
  • I want to thank you
    I know your pain is real
    But it’s guided by lies

    You, who visit here
    When someone marries or dies
    You never really knew my father

    They say you can’t speak ill of the dead
    It’s never the time or place
    But this man doesn’t deserve your grief
    He convinced you
    He could do nothing wrong
    That’s why I have no tears

    You were blind of the rage and the words
    The tyranny no one would have believed
    Cause you used to laugh together

    As for me, that weird little kid
    Who hid his distress too well
    I’ve finally found freedom

    They say you can’t speak ill of the dead
    It’s never the time or place
    But this man doesn’t deserve your grief
    He served you his best wine
    So you didn’t ask questions
    And that’s why I have no tears
  • [Verse]

    The lines have been drawn quietly
    I see my words drift away again
    My heart slows down to this bitter halt
    And it starts to get shallow

    Breath in to go for a witty line
    But it gets lost, and then it’s too late
    My eyes staring through my empty drink
    Looks like I’m boring myself again


    [Pre-Chorus]
    Gotta say something
    Or they won’t get to know you
    Keep your low profile
    You’re the death of the party

    [Chorus]
    Another wasted chance
    This night will never start
    They know that I am here
    Barely more than welcome
    When my turn seems to rise
    I keep on drawing blanks
    I’m nodding through it all
    Until everyone’s gone

    [Verse 2]
    By now I was supposed to have plans
    Or dozens of stories to tell
    It's like I missed out on everything
    So who would want to listen to me ?

    I'm looking for a simple question
    That is going to save my whole night
    And maybe I won't fumble for it
    Maybe I will look like I belong


    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    Why can’t you take the lead ?
    You’re not just a quiet guy
    Oh please just don’t look dumb
    One lame choice and you’ll fade

    [Bridge]
    (spoken) Nobody has a strong feeling about me
    (spoken) The worse thing is... I kinda like it that way
    And I wonder
    Will they notice ?

    [Chorus]
    Another wasted chance
    This night will never start
    They know that I am here
    Barely more than welcome
    When my turn seems to rise
    I keep on drawing blanks
    I’m nodding through it all
    Until everyone’s gone
    Until everyone’s gone
    Until everyone’s gone...
  • Wainwright:
    With two seasons of dust behind them
    Calliope and Vareem reach an impasse
    What little trust they shared has run dry
    So, one more time, Vareem spins his wicked web

    Vareem:
    Bad boys, bad boys surround
    But don’t worry, their path’s unclear
    Keep your head down, girl
    And close your pretty mouth

    Calliope:
    How do I fight
    With his eyes around my throat?
    Will I be just a number?
    Presented, only now
    A cold shoulder to my cries
    If so, which number will I be?

    Vareem:
    Seven!
    Seven!
    Seven!
    Seven!

    Vareem:
    Bad boys, bad boys creep close
    But don’t listen – your thoughts are mine
    Keep your mind shut, girl
    And choose Vareem – always

    Wainwright:
    Though, as she concedes a wind takes hold
    And thus, his desires are carried into the night

    Calliope:
    How could I ever know a peace like this?
    Did I deserve a second chance?
    I’ll shed this skin and rise once more
    With no number to my name
    Except
    For One

    Calliope:
    Where should I run
    Now his eyes blink no more?
    Will he be just a number?
    Relented, only then
    A faint echo in my Glowing mind
    If so, which number will he be?

    Vareem:
    Never!
    Never!
    Never!
    Never?

    Vareem:
    Bad girls, bad girls take note
    You didn’t listen – now your life is mine
    Keep running, girl
    And now the end begins
  • Too much concentration,
    oxidative stress
    Here comes cell death
    and anxiety
    Brain cells cry; I'm dying

    Lab results confirm
    all the damage done
    Glucose levels falling
    Headaches become chronic
    I actually feel the pain

    I'm not drinking
    enough water and
    not taking vitamins
    Unnatural foods
    Not enough ketones

    I could try a new
    techique
    Called the Pomodoro,
    25 minutes on
    and 5 minutes off

    Ah my mind is melting
    it drips into my soul
    Integers
    and decimals
    eating away at me
    What can I do to stop it
    Nothing seems to help
    I'm just bad at numbers
    they make my brain hurt!

    TV seems the
    opposite
    it makes me feel so good
    Snacking on the couch
    it's like velvet

    My breath is nice
    and even
    no digits of concern
    as soon as I see them
    I change the channel

    I also do not
    exercise
    I am lazy, just watch tv
    Do nothing is the easiest
    way to live by far

    Oh no my mind is melting
    it drips into my soul
    Integers
    and decimals
    eating away at me
    What can I do to stop it
    Nothing seems to help
    I'm just bad at numbers
    they make my brain hurt!

    What is... the value.... of Pi, you ask?
    pi=3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067

    Oh no my mind is melting
    it drips into my soul
    Don't look at me
    I'm thinking, as
    smoke comes out my ears
    What can I do to stop it
    Nothing seems to help
    I'm just bad at numbers
    they make my brain hurt!
  • Checked our bearings
    On a neon north star
    Streaked constellations on misted glass
    Tip the navigator
    Who guided his steel ship through
    Safely back to this little rock


    And won't you come ashore?
    For more wine and more song


    We'll dip the moon in honey
    Paint the night sky red
    We'll make the poets blush
    And question themselves
    Question who, who,
    Who Is the sailor
    And who is the siren


    Gather our sea legs
    On this short measured mile
    Fumbling like the light in this corridor
    The gulls, they watch us go
    Through the peepholes in their nests
    Waves of whispers in our wake


    And won't you come ashore?
    For more wine and more song


    We'll dip the moon in honey
    Paint the night sky red
    We'll make the poets blush
    And question themselves
    Question who, who,
    Who Is the sailor
    And who is the siren
  • Cog in machinery,
    Cog in a clock,
    No matter if I fall out,
    The Murder machine will never stop

    I might be me
    And you might be you
    When seen by them
    We're just bugs under boots


    I'm fucking squashed

    You took my mind
    You took my body
    You dug out my guts
    What more could you possibly want,
    When everything is not enough?

    I'm an arm in your army
    But you got no brains,
    Why would you ever think when you can set guns ablaze?

    You got so much money there's no consequence,
    It's you and mr. Bezos rewriting rules again

    It doesn't matter who you are as long as you're broke,
    Economic oppression while they sit on their thrones,
    And since we can't fill your shoes,
    We're just bugs under boots

    You took my mind
    You took my body
    You dug out my guts
    What more could you possibly want,
    You already have everything - yet you'll never stop.


    Camera on the web,
    You caught me,
    You never live your life,
    You're only watching,

    You're a hippo,
    I'm a cockroach
    Keep stomping around,
    Keep failing though

    I'm small,
    Stronger than an ant,
    Hippos are killers,
    Do you identify with that?

    You sow destruction
    We real what YOU sow,
    Yet your conscience is lighter than dandilion seeds in the wind,

    We might die together but you'll alone on
    Millionaire mountain
  • I sit at my father's table
    Learning secrets of the Gods
    I take them back to my people
    And bring them nectar and ambrosia
    They will never see my transgressions
    My charm will always leave them blind
    All the Gods are nothing but fools
    I will show them all how stupid they are

    Sit and rest dear father
    Sup upon this feast
    I offer up this sacrifice
    Your own flesh and blood

    I laugh at my father's fury
    The sacrifice was in his name
    Bridges burnt that can't be mended
    So I am sent to Tartarus
    They leave me submerged in water
    Which I will never get to drink
    Succulent fruit hangs above me
    But a cruel wind keeps it out my reach

    Here I rot dear father
    Denied of this feast
    You leave me as a sacrifice
    Your own flesh and blood

    The thirst never ends
    The hunger eternal
    The thirst never ends
    The hunger eternal

    Sticky silk enraptures me
    Pulls me up
    Pulls me in

    You consume me
    Run sweet poison through my veins
    You consume me
    Bleed me dry

    You can’t help it, it’s your nature

    Suck me up
    Suck me in

    You consume me

    Unwind your delicate web
    Let me out
    Let me down
    And then

    Soaks into surrounding blue

    Ponders its influence on the waves
    Mmm, mmm

    We are...

    [2:30]
    Fire, water and air
    Song, wine and dance
    The spirit
    The jubilant
    Our love, our song
    Will be our wings

    Ohh

    Reaching new heights together
    The mountains will crane their necks
    To watch us, watch us ascend
    On towards our pinnacle

    [3:25]
    Where the diamond light of stars
    Reflects on the heads of clouds
    We are there

    When the hours run out of days (Out of days)
    And forever becomes permanent
    We are....

    Fire, water and air

  • Another day begins immersed within my war inside

    Another day inside my head,
    So many thoughts that end in nothing
    Drowning in musings,
    Turning each memory over so I can’t see
    Pressing down, weighed upon
    Flat to the floor, I can’t get it off
    This lack is strong, festers in raw consciousness

    Standing alone on the moors,
    Bitter cold brushes over open wounds inside

    I long to be
    Feel so right
    Happiness so far
    Out of reach
    Cannot find a
    Balm for the pain
    Revel within its
    Limited utility
    Rolling clacks in time
    Rhythm made
    A metronomic
    Meter ticks (tick tick tick)
    So much must be done,
    It falls to me
    Never sees the light
    Another wasted day
    Drooping eyelids,
    Atlas screamed
    Cursed desire,
    Lacan might say
    Curl into a ball,
    Under the rug
    Cry alone and hope that this is temporary

    The voice inside my mind is so depressed,
    The voice inside my mind sounds so sombre

    Face ID, quiet mind
    Quell the ruminations
    Quell the ruminations
    Quell the ruminations
    Quell the ruminations
    Quell the ruminations
    Quell the ruminations
  • Life cornered me with pity
    Knocked me right down to my knees
    Knocked me down but never out
    I’ll keep standing where I fall

    Sorrow pushed me to the ropes
    Bruised a battered, broken mind
    Dealt me out a dozen scars
    I gave back a dozen more

    This is my final fight song

    Breaking free of ties that bind
    Battle scars and bloody smile
    No one needs to rescue me
    I’m the hero, I’m the cure

    Got a bullet in the blood
    In a chamber of my heart

    My black eyes suffer blindness
    Burning skin is slick with sweat
    A new battle every day
    Broken still I rise again

    Life one day is gonna win
    What begins must end, it’s true
    Fight until the final curtain
    Give back every bit I get

    This is my final fight song

    Breaking free of ties that bind
    Battle scars and bloody smile
    No one needs to rescue me
    I’m the hero, I’m the cure

    And when the fight is over
    And the final bell it rings
    I’ll fall down frail and fractured
    But the vict’ry will be mine

    Breaking free of ties that bind
    Battle scars and bloody smile
    No one needs to rescue me
    I’m the hero, I’m the cure

    Breaking free of ties that bind
    Battle scars and bloody smile
    No one needs to rescue me
    I’m the hero, I’m the cure

    Got a bullet in the blood
    In a chamber of my heart

  • Rigged up, racket round neck
    Chained throat, dragging me down to die
    No breath, desert of dead last
    Bone dry, mummified for life

    Waste not, wanting a new go
    Piss broke, all the doors are bolted shut
    Up top, in the rarified room
    This game is a joke they tell

    Why court danger?
    Lies do wonders

    Packed in, record hot flesh
    Burned off by better men self-proclaimed
    Serfs up, floating in tide
    Face down, supplicate for grace

    Why use torture?
    Sell more scratch-offs

    Why keep working?
    For some pretense

    Neck deep into debt
    Hung out to forget
    Oh dear god no, I broke the rule again
    Whipped back into shape
    Scar tissue will not fade
    Don't hurt no more, but the lesson stays

    Lick salt off the floor
    Can't beg for no- seconds
    I eat my fill of dust and promises
    So, wasting away
    Limp day after- night
    To drug my jealous peasantry

    Why use poison?
    Feed us dreamstuff

    Born into the dirt
    Sand blasted by shame
    Crook back rakes it in
    Bent back wallows

  • The blade looked so beautiful
    Twisting the dagger inside
    Stained with fresh blood
    It tasted sweet and foul
    Oh such an exhilaration
    To feel a life end

    Was this sensation truly worth it?
    Guess it's too late now to know

    Wonderous calm and release
    To have finally done it
    As the eyes close
    No time for goodbyes
    It's my soul to take
    My choice and my will

    Who knows what's on the other side
    I believe I'll soon find out
    Who knows what's on the other side
  • Young was a girl, in a forest of green
    Picking her way through a basket of dreams
    Agaric gold, and Mulberry black
    Were the song on her lips, and the stains in her lap

    Then, smoke in the air, wafting perilously close
    Through the criss cross canopy, and the limbs of the oaks
    A cry in the silence, like fangs in a (fangs in a) throat

    She ran, she ran, to the source of the call
    Quicksilver dashing, dagger in palm
    Fearlessly nearing, with righteous speed
    Hoping to help a poor damsel in need
  • It's funny how the start of summertime
    Can cause such a shift in paradigm
    How such a crazy, mixed-up world
    Can turn me into a surfer girl

    I'm gunna grab my board
    And run myself up to the sea
    Surfin' 'cross the waves
    I'm shinin', flyin', I am free

    I'm a surfer girl, uh-oh, uh-oh (surfer girl)
    I’m a surfer girl, uh-oh, uh-oh (surfer girl)
    I’m a surfer girl (surfer girl)
    I’m a surfer girl

    A-balanced atop the surfboard I stand
    Feelin' like I'm one with the sea and sand
    Ridin' up the tide without a hint of shame
    All the rollin' waves are callin' my name

    My cares are soarin' off
    Like the seagulls in the sky
    I'm one with the board
    In my soul, I think I might cry

  • Landscapes appear
    From a cloud of smoke
    Dark night is gone
    In a single stroke

    Moments burst into colors
    As I lay awake
    Beautiful dreams
    Born from mistakes

    Feet on the palette
    A paintbrush oar in my hand
    On the painted river
    I drift to childhood's end

    Created anew
    Will soon be left behind

    At the bow I stand
    A lifelong journey
    To reach the land
    Where water and stars once met

    I dive headfirst
    Into the sea of memories
    Collecting pearls
    For my inner treasury

    When I cannot recall
    I'll reach the waterfall
    That's when I can
    Erase the slate again

    Feet on the palette
    A paintbrush oar in my hand
    On the painted river
    I drift to childhood's end

    Created anew
    Will soon be left behind

    At the bow I stand
    A lifelong journey
    To reach the land
    Where water and stars once met

    Feet on the palette

    On the painted river

    In the middle of the night
    Glowing eyes light my way
    Across the sands of time

    She says she wants to feel it all
    With me before we turn to dust
    But this open bottle of wine
    Won’t take long to lose its luster

    Dark clouds and cold gray eyes
    Lead me through the dead of night
    And for now
    The planets are aligned

    Eventually the sun will rise
    We’ll never see these worlds collide
    But right now
    The planets are aligned
    If only for tonight

    A history of histrionics
    She goes by many names
    In a place where nothing matters
    Won’t let a soul stand in her way

    Acrylic nails tap tap away
    Lying through her teeth
    With the endless rhythm of
    A paper mâché heartbeat

    Dark clouds and cold gray eyes
    Lead me through the dead of night
    And for now
    The planets are aligned

    Eventually the sun will rise
    We’ll never see these worlds collide
    But right now
    The planets are aligned
    If only for tonight

    Dark clouds and cold gray eyes
    Lead me through the dead of night
    And for now
    The planets are aligned

    Eventually the sun will rise
    We’ll never see these worlds collide
    But right now
    The planets are aligned
    If only for tonight

    Before I met you, everything was so dark and grey
    Now the sun is shining, all I want is for you to stay
    Could not stop the tears from flowing
    And now there's only tears of joy that are showing
    I can't imagine how life would be apart
    This music plays right from the strings of my heart

    You're the best person I've ever had in my life
    Without you I don't think I would have survived
    No other person would ever treat me like you do

    Forever is not enough time together with you
    No it's not nearly enough time together with you
    Not long enough to feel you
    No, not enough time to kiss you, to kiss you
    Yeah, I need more than forever
    We need more than forever together
    We need more than forever together

    When we met I was broken
    Together with you I am whole
    It's quite a ride we have taken
    You have awakened my soul

    I wish it was easy
    To sound less cheesy
    When I say

    Forever is not enough time together with you
    No it's not nearly enough time together with you
    Not long enough to feel you
    No, not enough time to kiss you, to kiss you
    Yeah, I need more than forever
    We need more than forever together

    This, this may sound like any other pop song
    But it's different
    Because this is our pop song
    Guess it's not so different

    Yeah, I need more than forever, I need
    Yeah, I need more than forever with you
    With you

    We need more than forever together
    We need more than forever together
  • Slip on my new converse
    Press play on my old walkman
    Sun's heat upon my neck
    And a slight breeze that feels perfect

    Let my legs just carry me
    Pound pavement to the beat
    Of the rhythm section in my ear
    As I head off down the street

    Lazy traffic cruises by
    Towards the haze caused by the heat
    There's teens smoking outside Fast Stop
    Kids playing hop scotch in the street
    As the music builds to the chorus
    The world seems to be in sync
    This one moment feels enormous
    And everything seems to just click

    This is the soundtrack to the perfect evening
    On days like these, on days like these
    In the background plays out perfect scenes
    On days like these, simple days like these

    Rainbows form in front lawns
    Through the hazy mist of sprinklers
    There's a smile and a nod
    To every passing stranger

    No direction that am heading
    l'll meander through the heat
    And I'll rewind and start again
    When the tape is complete

    Scent of fresh cut grass
    Barbecue down at Joe's Garage
    There's a couple sharing ice cream
    While they watch a water balloon barrage
    As the music builds to the chorus
    This one moment feels so smooth
    And everything just seems so flawless
    And I'm lost within the groove

    This is the soundtrack to the perfect evening
    On days like these, on days like these
    In the background plays out perfect scenes
    On days like these, simple days like these
  • Wrong day to work inside a store
    Every step is like walking through a sun’s core
    Feeling blank while my friends enjoy their trips
    In the group chat, I’m the sole one with sealed lips

    Speakers going strong since 7 am
    Filling space for nobody’s acclaim
    And now, for the fourth time of the day
    That reggeaton song comes and never goes away

    Won’t go away
    Won't go away
    Won't go away
    Won't go away

    My colleagues sings lyrics like clockwork
    When I don’t, they make me feel happiness' hostage
    It’s been weeks since I’ve launched Spotify
    Shuffling sounds like I’m still going through the aisles
    Can’t enjoy any style
    But gotta hold that smile

    I want to hear it
    But not right now
    In next year’s playlist, this is my vow
    It will be okay
    When retail’s done
    Music will go back to being fun

    I want to hear it
    But not right now

  • Let me take you
    Down to the shore
    Searching for nothing more
    Than to waste the day away
    We can play pretend
    Underneath the stars
    Lose who we are
    To the sway

    These are the days we’ll remember
    When it’s raining in November
    Diamond skies and cotton air
    Boozy laughter and summer glare

    These are the days we’ll remember
    When we’re older and much more hindered
    Humid days and breezy nights
    Bonfire parties and burning sighs

    Let’s light a fire beneath the stars
    Forget everything ‘bout who we are

    I’ll lick the dew
    From off your lips
    A lingering kiss
    Taste the salt on your breath
    We can chase the day
    Escape to Paris
    Live like there is
    No living left

    Swing high, swing low
    Swing your hips
    Swing ‘em slow
    Swing high, swing low
    Swing your hips

    Diamond skies and cotton air
    Boozy laughter and summer glare

    These are the days we’ll remember
    When we’re older and much more hindered
    Humid days and breezy nights
    Bonfire parties and burning sighs

    Let’s light a fire beneath the stars
    Forget everything ‘bout who we are

    It was the summer of ‘83
    You and me, wild and free
    Everything we were meant to be
  • [Verse]
    One last turn before the place stands revealed
    A city of minivans lined up in the field

    I park my car in the shadow of a tree
    My neighbor's already waving at me

    [Pre-Chorus]
    He's a cool guy from Argentina
    Tonight we'll bang our heads to Gojira
    YEAH

    [Chorus]
    This is my kind of hell
    A weekend of drums and decibels
    Beer falling from the sky
    Every song’s a battlecry
    This place's giving me all I've ever wanted and more
    Tonight I'm home like I never was before

    [Verse]
    I got to crowdsurf, took part in mosh pits
    Every bone hurts but damn, it was worth it

    The music's good, my new friend is still here
    I've promised him I'll visit him next year

    [Chorus]
    This is my kind of hell
    A weekend of drums and decibels

    Every song’s a battlecry
    This place's giving me all I've ever wanted and more
    Tonight I'm home like I never was before

    [Bridge]
    Monday I'll go back to reality
    Won't have my voice or energy
    I guess I finally answered the call
    Can't wait for the next festival!

    Yeah!
    Come on!

    Aye, aye, aye
    Aye, aye, aye

  • Hidden Inlet

    We spent our luck
    Stalking taco trucks
    In summer months
    And before we knew
    It was almost dusk
    Just me and you
    But we barely felt
    What county held us
    Fast and frantic
    Chasing street signs
    Never mind where we were before
    Just to be home
    In a firm surrounding
    Pounding pavement no more

    Sage and cord gave way before our eyes and bore our hearts to joy
    There lay bays and pools of setting sun to cool our wayward play

    I like the way you wave
    Beckon me down to shore
    I got the picture saved
    I gotta take some more
    I lost the way we came
    This is the path, I'm sure
    Everything looks the same
    Except the one that I adore

    I like the way you wave
    Beckon me down to shore
    I got the picture saved
    I gotta take some more
    I lost the way we came
    This is the path, I'm sure
    Nothing is just the same
    Never mind where we were before

    'Til now I wanted to bring you out
    But now I set my clock by
    I set my clock by you

    By the way you wave
    By the way you turn
    By the way, you know I'll never ever learn
    By the way you say
    "No, we need this place"
    By the way you put a sad smile on your face

    By the way you swim
    By the way you curve
    By the way, you know I can't work up the nerve to
    By the way you care
    By the way you run
    That's how I know that you're the only one

    Staring down the numbers
    They don't count down quickly enough
    Calendars and clocks
    The paperwork it never stops

    He said "Have it on my desk by three"
    That's fine
    She said "I needed that yesterday"
    My bad
    They said "Can you sign this birthday card"
    Yeah sure
    They said "Can you order more paperclips?"
    Can do...

    Can do attitude
    Can do with some time off
    I'm not in the mood
    In my mind I'm already gone

    Pre chorus:
    I'm gone
    To a white sandy beach
    With water so clear
    I can see the deep
    And I'm gone
    To lush fields of green
    Where email doesn't reach
    And I can get some peace

    Chorus:
    Coming back to earth again
    Outta office space, outta office space
    Reconnect with the world again
    And my place in it

    Verse 2:
    Staring at the schedule
    Responsibilities rack up
    Briefings and meetings
    From the mornings to the evenings

    Away from the masses

    I guess it's time...
    It's time to ugh...
    Fucking rock

    The world is burning and we don't care
    Hell is here but we don't give a fuck
    Can't make a difference, we won't dare
    Just let it all go, we've run out of luck

    It doesn't matter
    What happens after
    Salvation ain't coming
    Just enjoy it while it's ending

    We didn't care then
    Why should we care now?
    Watch the world burn
    Enjoy the heat now
    We didn't care then
    Why should we care now?

    Maybe we could've stopped this boulder
    When it had just started to roll
    Didn't give a damn, though we knew better
    Might as well let it break down all our walls

    It doesn't matter
    What happens after
    Salvation ain't coming
    Just enjoy it while it's ending

    We'll die anyway, doesn't matter when
    Our home will survive
    It's just us that will end

    We didn't care then
    Why should we care now?
    Watch the world burn
    Enjoy the heat now
    Enjoy the heat now

    Dare to live within a dream

    (With you right next to me)
    Blinded by the UV
    (Are you blinded by me)

    I feel the waves crash over me…over me

    Go to work and get paid,
    I waste my time wasting away,
    But corporate life is built this way,
    It's so absurd

    Winter freezes up my heart,
    (In Autum I FALL apart,)
    In Spring - allergies kick in,
    (summer burns on my skin)
    Anticipation sinks in
    (Summer burns on my skin)
    Wondering where you've been.

    Daily day is filled with rain,
    My mood sours from blue to grey,
    Life in circles it's too mundane

    Next summer will be carefree,
    Just like when we were sixteen
    Next summer I'll see all of you again,
    And all our wounds will start to mend

    Daily day is filled with rain,
    My mood sours from blue to grey,
    Chained to my desk but seasons change

    Go to work and get paid
    Wasting my time wasting away
    Chained to my desk but summer lets me escape


    Sand beneath my feet
    (With you right next to me)
    Blinded by the UV
    (Are you blinded by me)

    I feel the waves crash over me
    (and I am free)
    over me

    I remember how we would walk
    Just walk, the weather didn't matter
    It was bright, even without the sun
    In the cold and dark
    In the pouring rain, it always was
    Summer in your eyes


    The days pass like a dream
    The moments in between, so fleeting
    Something happening to me
    Like a tidal wave
    Crashing down on me


    I remember how we would run
    Through the snowy fields, it didn't matter
    It was bright, with or without the sun
    If the sky was dark
    All I had to do was look
    At the sunshine in your eyes


    It still seems like a dream
    The moments that were never what they seemed
    Like someone else's memories
    Like a soothing touch
    Drifts across my mind


    I remember how we would walk
    Just walk, the weather didn't matter
    It was bright, even without the sun
    In the cold and dark
    In the pouring rain, it always was
    Summer in your eyes
  • I want you to know that
    I'm no longer afraid
    Even though in my head
    I've fucked it up so many different ways

    And now the summer looks a little less grey
    And I'm no longer just counting the days
    The clockwork monotony fades
    Just when I hear you say my name

    I'm so happy
    That your here

    And in the morning
    I awoke to a text with your name
    And I could feel you smile
    From so very far away

    And if it's okay i won't leave
    Until one of us is in the grave
    And if it's okay will you stay
    Until one of us in the grave
    And if it's okay i won't leave
    Until one of us is in the grave
    And if it's okay will you stay
    Until one of us in the grave

    Last night the river Liffey would glow
    In all the colours of a rainbow
    And today I walk beside it
    Refreshed restored and renewed

    And no matter the October stroms
    They couldn't wash this away
    I'll run with scissors invoke the Lord in vain
    I'll bet it all on seven it'll go my way

    I'm so happy
    That your here

    And in the morning
    I awoke to a text with your name
    And I could feel you smile
    From so very far away
  • The sunlight, gets lost behind the clouds
    No one cares, stuck moving in the crowds
    We're all blind, taught only to conform
    Wash us clean, send a summer storm

    Send a summer storm
    Send a summer storm

    The water, will wash away it all
    So I pray, to let the warm rain fall
    We're all alone, talk only to conform
    Wash us clean, send a summer storm

    Send a summer storm
    Send a SUMMER STORM

    The wind chill, cooled us from the heat
    Sound of thunder, echoed down the street
    A crack of lightning, lit the path ahead
    From then on, noone had regret
    As rain fell, with it came new hope
    All the sleepers, were finally awoke
    We were despondent, know only to conform
    Wash us clean, send a summer storm

    Send a summer storm
    Send a SUMMER STORM

    The clouds part, showing skies of blue
    Look around, at the people born anew
    We are free, you can't make us conform
    Wash us clean, send a summer storm

    Send a summer storm
    Send a summer storm

    In the woods, on the hood, it’s understood, it should be good
    Summertime, feeling fine, drinking wine, no finer time
    Crystal clear that we are here, keep you near, music to my ears
    A singer croons, late afternoon, wafting tunes, and the rising moon

    The sun sets, feeling faith when in your arms,
    I'll never forget, how safe i feel from harm
    Afternoon, the heat, I change all my belief....

    Sit together, a perfect spot in time
    Live forever, I'm yours and you are mine
    Afternoon, the heat, I change all my belief
    Rising moon, I meet the summer angel of relief!

    No mosquitos could ruin this perfect night
    Our libidos, I swoon when in your sights
    Perfect fusion, a vacation so ideal
    No illusion, my salvation, you are real
    We'll discover, exploring, it feels right
    With each other, we're soaring to new heights

    Blushing breath, it warms each other's souls,
    Nothing left, as we form a perfect whole
    Afternoon, the heat, I change all my belief....

    Sit together, a perfect spot in time
    Live forever, I'm yours and you are mine
    Afternoon, the heat, I change all my belief
    Rising moon, I meet the summer angel of relief!

    Sit together, a perfect spot in time
    Live forever, I'm yours and you are mine
    Afternoon, the heat, I change all my belief
    Rising moon, I meet the summer angel of relief!

    Sunrise, yesterday's so long ago
    Harmonized. no way we're letting go
    And soon, our heat, I change all my belief
    Honeymoon, I meet the summer angel of relief!
  • Swept by some sleepless clarity
    You’re back in the shoes of a bully
    Picking one-sided brawls

    School’s been over for a long time
    You strolled all the way through the climb
    While others still crawl

    From a clean little life
    Made of old dirty games
    Can’t meet them halfway

    Twenty years have passed
    They remember your name
    And they’re still marked prey

    Now that you know you ran away
    It’s too late to serve a sentence
    Or a backstory
    Thin like their hope for vengeance

    How many butterflies did you crush with your hands ?
    How many lives swayed inches closer to the end ?

    You forgot those times of success
    The ones who could stop you were clueless
    What was not to love ?

    Every corner was your domain
    You hated cheap clothes and big brains
    And you felt miles above

    Your white picked fences
    Stand in a blood-soaked soil
    But the place’s still nice
    And you have a family to spoil

    How many hopes did you waste for a day’s respect ?
    How many forgotten words still have an effect ?

    And if you don’t remember their veil of demise
    Each night, you can find it deep in your daughter’s eyes

    The rules never changed
    The weapons just got massive
    You wish it was fine
    To be anything but combative
    It’s a quick, easy path
    From a lunchbox to a whole soul
    When your child cries to you
    Don’t tell her it was your role

    (Verse)
    The hustle-bustle city, perfect in every way
    Well let me tell ya, all the peace, will reach its end today
    For the greatest supervillain is coming, raining down
    You like your ice cream cone? Cos now it's on the ground!

    I'm here to take you over, get down on your knees
    I'll knock your Jenga over, de-steel your RMC's
    Now don't you laugh at me, or I'll break all your bones
    Ok, I'm feeling tired, so I guess I'll just go home

    (Spoken word)
    Yeah, I guess you're safe for now
    I mean I can't be evil without a bit of beauty- hey, hey wait!
    Where are you going? I'm not done monologuing!
    Grrrr, you will rue the day when…aw, screw it.

    (Chorus)
    I am Defectus, your nightmare alive!
    No one around me will ever survive!
    I promise this time, my plans will succeed
    Ok, I swear, STOP LAUGHING AT ME!

    (Spoken word)
    Sure, the supervillain league stopped taking my calls,
    But that's their loss! R-right? Right?!

    (Verse)
    My Nega-Satellite, will blow you all away
    Oh, wait, it self-destructed, but, no, no, no, that's ok!
    Prepare yourselves for this, my latest evil scheme
    It looks weird, I know, but it's greater than it seems!

    Enjoy your last moments of freedom, little proles
    For soon you'll be under my new system of control
    All I gotta do is just flip this little switch!
    And now I'll be your master, and you'll all be my-

    *Cough, hack, wheeze!*
    Grrr, curses! That'll take, like, 3 hours to repair!
    Ok, great, you're laughing, again!
    S-surely that's a fear reaction! I-I'm terrifying!
    *hysterically laughing* Right? RIGHT?!?! Right?

    (Chorus)
    I am Defectus, your nightmare alive!
    No one around me will ever survive!
    I promise this time, my plans will succeed
    Ok, I swear, STOP LAUGHING AT ME!

    (Spoken word)
    To the Evil Lair!
    Yes, it's in my Mom's basement, so?
    Have you seen housing prices lately?
    I'm evil, I'm not stupid!
    Ah! Here she is right now to provide a solo!
    HIT IT, MOTHER!

    (Evil Solo)

    (Verse)
    Soon this puny world, it will grovel at my feet!
    Your happiness will end, so take a thumbtack on your seat!
    Sure, today, everybody laughs and they all call me names
    But mark my words, sooner enough they'll all be locked in chains!

    Ah, here he comes, Ultra-Guy, look, he’s flying 'cross the stars!
    Surely he's here to fight, to lock me behind bars!
    Well, I'm prepared, and Ultra-Guy won’t stand a chance
    Wait, where's he going? Did he not just see my glance?

    (Spoken word)
    Hey, stop ignoring me, Ultra-Guy!
    I'm serious, I have a bomb planted to blow up the-
    Hey, wait, where's the bomb?
    Aw crap! I left it at home again!

    I am Defectus, your nightmare alive!
    No one around me will ever survive!
    I promise this time, my plans will succeed
    Ok, I swear, STOP LAUGHING AT ME!

    (Spoken word)
    Welp, made a fool of myself again!
    No matter, no matter! Next time, I'll make 'em all pay!
    All I gotta do now is call Mom so she can pick me-

    AW COME ON! WHY DID I BOOBY-TRAP MY OWN PHONE?!?
    GGGRGRGRAAAAAAHHAHHHH!!! I’M SO STUPID!!!

  • Dark night in a dated house
    signs of the past haunt the rooms
    I wish it wasn't true

    Timeless dust hides the abandoned
    Lies stuck in a web of the forgotten
    I wish it wasn't true
    Cuz I'm sitting here waiting for you

    How can I see a Ghost?
    I don't see a soul

    You are always here in spirit
    If only you were more transparent
    Please tell me the truth

    I only see you in bed sheets
    Otherwise you are dead to me
    Please tell me the truth

    How can I see a Ghost?
    I don't see a soul

    How could you be so evil?
    How can I call you a man?

    Burns and itches with

    The sudden urge to do
    Mad and wicked things

    Get underneath your skin

    Nothing as it ever seems
    Enter at your own despair
    Leave your worries with your care

    Flowers of madness in my mind
    Leave the greatest ambition behind
    Thunderous beat of a staggering heart
    Ripping itself and my world apart
    In this landscape of disaster
    Who is the true master?

    (In this landscape of disaster
    Who is the true master?)

    Every corner shadows stalking
    Memories of angels falling
    A party of uninvited guests
    Empty, vacant marionettes
    In this landscape of disaster
    Who is the true master?

    In this landscape of disaster
    Who is the true master?

    Here is where it all begins
    The utter blackness and every sin
    The circus of a funhouse mind
    Cracked in places you’ll never find

    In this landscape of disaster
    Who is the true master?

    Here is where it all ends
    An inky death into descent
    I lose myself to primal urge
    Embrace the madness, begin the purge

    In this landscape of disaster
    Who is the true master?
  • The needle nicks the skin, release:
    A feeble drop of blood
    Then shining ruby rivers crease
    the skin, become a flood

    With poison's deepest black

    You are all coming to my party

    All gifts are graciously received
    It’s so much fun, you’ll never leave
    My every wish will soon come true
    Oh look – there is a place for you!

    You are all coming to my party

    Make friends, make friends
    Never, ever break friends
    Best buds, that’s us
    I’ll love you so much til it hurts

    Best pals will always find each other
    And when I’m done I’ll seek another

    Never ever break friends
    If you do I’ll poison you
    And that will be the end of you)

    What secrets are hidden under there?

    There’s one more game we have to play

    Knowing that deep down we all want the same thing

  • Buried under
    My father's home
    There is a body
    of whom we don't know

    Just as a child I pulled you from the earth
    And asked who where you for what did you deserve
    And my teachers said nothing, nothing was in the books
    And the government said nothing there's only glory in what we took
    But someone shattered your tiny legs
    And starved you thin and burnt your beds

    But now that I'm older
    I think I know
    I was born a leach
    Sucking to grow

    I'm an owner of historic sin
    Raking the profits of the evil of men
    I'm an owner of historic sin
    Raking the profits of the evil of men
    I'm an owner of historic sin
    Raking the profits of the evil of men

    Buried under
    My father's home
    There is a body
    And we all know
  • I am not anchored to anything true any more
    No hearts with warmth in them will ever again cross my door
    All the bridges and the books that I have burned
    Lit my way down a dark path and I will not return
    I can not change
    Hand is in glove
    Evil is not the opposite of good
    It is the absence of love

    We were so desperate to explain
    The fear, the spite, the shame, the pain
    The mystery this misery we caused each other again and again
    It defied understanding
    We could not comprehend something
    So abstract, so abhorrent, so insane
    So we gave it a name


    I'm the serial killer, you know my name you’ve seen my picture
    Im the one they write the books about
    But I am in your neighbour, and looking at you in the mirror
    I live in fear and grow strong in self doubt
    I have killed as many millions
    With vitriol as with indifference
    I feed hate to those who can not get enough
    You may say that I'm the opposite of good but I thrive in the absence of love


    It’s easy to use me to name your enemy
    Like watching a movie, where I’m defeated in act three
    But here’s the reality, there is no cavalry
    Coming to confront me, and force me to my knees

    We were so desperate to explain
    The fear, the spite, the shame, the pain
    The mystery this misery we caused each other again and again
    It defied understanding
    We could not comprehend something
    So abstract, so abhorrent, so insane
    So we gave it a name
  • When I was a child I didn't know any better
    This suffering and pain, I didn't put it together
    But it was you
    Yes it was you
    I didn't understand why I don't feel protected
    Even at home, I kept feeling rejected
    Because of you
    Blame falls on you
    I thought it was me, I thought I was the fuckup
    I wanted to die, should've just told you to shut up
    I wish I knew
    To say FUCK YOU


    You may have given me life
    But since then, you've made me live it in strife

    E-very time you open your hole
    V-ile bullshit is all that I hear
    I-s there anything left of your soul?
    L-eft you behind, now I'll persevere


    As an adult, I have now finally learned
    My sympathy for you, I should have burned
    Away with you
    I'm done with you
    You never cared to know what kind of person I am
    Always tried to mold me into your little lamb
    I am not for you
    To hell with you
    I have broken out of your prison and chains
    I will never again live under your reign
    I shout fuck you
    I'm free of you

    FREE OF YOU

    You may have given me life
    But since then, you've made me live it in strife

    E-very time you open your hole
    V-ile bullshit is all that I hear
    I-s there anything left of your soul?
    L-eft you behind, now I'll persevere


    Honor thy father and thy mother
    Is worth nothing without love and care

    With parents like those, who needs enemies
    With love like that, no wonder

    Transmission to mission control
    All systems looking good
    Continuing our quest
    Into uncharted worlds

    Looking out with wonder at the stars
    in all their numbers and I…
    Dear God, what the hell is that?

    Long have I slumbered
    Biding my time

    With a primeval scream
    Eyes in the thousands gleam
    An open maw with jagged teeth
    Its shadow tendrils thrash beneath

    Long have I slumbered
    Biding my time
    Long have I hungered
    You will be mine

    Enraptured by the cosmic form
    That breaks the mind to gaze
    Thoughts fail to comprehend
    That impossible shape
    Compelled to kneel in praise

    As we sail through the cosmos
    I hear a crash from our docking bay
    1000 tendrils wrapped around us
    In desperation I boldly pray

    Praise be
    To thee

    The monster seems unappeased
    And tears apart our starboard wing
    I board the last escape pod
    Metal bend, ears start to ring

    Did any make it out alive?
    There’s no hope left for those aboard
    Just enough fuel to make it to the next star system,
    If I can make it through the Sonoran Asteroid Field…

    Lost within the cosmic void
    Marooned among the asteroids
    It’s hard to maintain any hope
    My fuel tank is running low

    The creature's form still haunts my mind
    Jagged teeth, thousands of eyes
    As everything goes dark…
  • The anger flowed out of the buildings
    Like so much blood into the streets
    The fifth time in recent memory
    Another town succumbed to the beast

    How many dead will lay at the alter
    How many souls will be enough
    How much blood does it take to awaken
    The silent god thats forsaken us

    Thunder crack rips a soul from the body
    Tears fill the news, as the family weeps
    Another life becomes a number
    They tally them up at their idols feet

    How many dead will lay at the alter
    How many souls will be enough
    How much blood does it take to awaken
    The silent god thats forsaken us

    It wasn't enough
    It wasn't enough

    10 23 7 21
    It wasn't enough
    It's never enough


    10 23 7 21
    It wasn't enough
    It's never enough

    But if we know theres evil behind the gates,
    then why the fuck dont we just close the gates.

    Wake the Fuck Up!

    Will my hopes give up if I look ahead ?

    Speaking a French only fit for your job
    Weapons and hatred concealed
    As I marched peacefully
    They charged at me

    A hopeless sight to be behold

    take it into
    our own hands



    Under the moon the swords are shining
    tonight, blood will spill
    Under the stars, we are fighting
    Tonight, we will...


    And the first blade is swung
    Our enemies took us for fools
    But we carry on...

    and we might have looked weak,
    but we will not lay down and die
    For this is all we have
    So hear our battle cry

    Our resolve is glorious
    We will be victorious

    Our swords will fight back
    Our shields will defend us
    Our hearts will empower us
    Our souls will be free



    The last moments will decide all
    We will stand, we will not fall
    For we made a promise to not waver
    The tides can still turn in our favour

    If our last breath isn't breathed

    affected with disease or ill health
    Sick!
    outstandingly or amazingly good or impressive
    Prepare yourselves for this story of disease, heartbreak and shattered hope
    The story of ignorant fools who just wanted to make it in time for GoB-O-Vision


    They had so many ideas, they were great
    All the pieces fit, things were going good
    Maybe it was something that they ate
    Now it was time to throw up all that food


    It was a magician's trick
    It was the chef's kiss
    Their song was meant to be sick
    But not sick like this

    This isn't the track they were making
    This is just our eulogy for it
    Can you feel their hearts breaking?
    If only we could listen to it


    As they picked themselves off the ground, They knew there is no time to dawdle
    They must be GoB-O-Vision bound, not going would be immoral
    It's time to clean yourselves up, to make something of your damnation
    Get yourselves out of this dump, can a song come into creation?


    They could not all make it through
    Their song has been left behind
    How will they make it, just two?
    An angel, I was assigned


    It was a magician's trick
    It was the chef's kiss
    Their song was meant to be sick
    But not sick like this

    This isn't the track we were making
    This is just their eulogy for it
    Can you feel their hearts breaking?
    If only we could listen to it


    The prophecy tells of the day
    The third will rise from the ashes
    Yes, she will rise like the phoenix
    She will rise and bring the track back to life
    But until the day comes
    Dance with us to this song


    This isn't the track we were making
    This is just our prequel for it
    Can you feel our heartbeat speeding?
    Wait until you can listen to it

    Grab a mic and let me hear you roar
    Bring the song that's living on in you
    And let's be the start of something new

    A nation without walls
    Cross sonic seas
    Open to one and all

    Our history is what you bring
    Round here the music makes you
    Our legacy is what you build
    Just let the music take you
  • Fiona works in a call center
    All day dealing with complaints
    At night she opens up her sewing box
    To forget all her constraints
    Sauchiehall Street is her catwalk
    For all the creations that she makes
    In her mind she sees red carpets
    With her designs at center stage

    Don't let them tell you that you can't
    Don't be sold on their regrets
    Just cause you haven't gotten there just means you haven't yet
    Small lives
    Big dreams

    James he is a postie
    Out in the morning rain and sleet
    He comes home every evening
    With new blisters on his feet
    But all he wants to do was paint
    Swap to soft sand from hard concrete
    Landscapes, still life's and portraits
    Of all the people that he meets

    Don't let them tell you that you can't
    Don't be sold on their regrets
    Just cause you haven't gotten there just means you haven't yet
    Small lives
    Big dreams

    Don't let them tell you that you can't
    Don't be sold on their regrets
    Just cause you haven't gotten there just means you haven't yet
    Small lives

  • I was older than you
    And I loved your music
    And your poetry; I know you
    once got an A in English

    And so I loved you
    pretty little thing
    and I loved the way
    you looked at me

    And I don't know how it all ends
    But maybe it's all for the best

    Single-minded, steady focus
    Captured by your studies
    I probed the depths to discover
    What you felt about me

    I tried to keep a distance
    Held myself back
    Just in case I was wrong about
    What you felt in fact

    And I don't know how it all ends
    But maybe it's all for the best

    And I don't know why it all ended
    But maybe it's all for the best
    But maybe it doesn't have to be maybe

  • Wrote a song about how life went wrong,
    It’s got some drive and some feeling
    But I know the jury and the voters hate the politics

    I’m making a scene, the audience screams
    The girls in the front giving fuck-me cries
    I wanna shove these flags into my eyes 
    Selling out for glory


    I wanna be like Rage or Serj Tankian,
    I’m doing camp instead
    Shiny lights, the same old ballad to my girl,
    Meaningless and done to death


    Mindless jingles
    Dead inside
    Mindless music
    Yeeeaahhhh!


    Forget the talent, need that war porn high
    I want my Daddy Zelenskyy
    No matter the song, I want to be on the right,
    Stefania and I, going all night 


    I wanna be like Rage or Serj Tankian,
    I’m doing camp instead
    Shiny lights, the same old ballad to my girl,
    Meaningless and done to death (chorus x2)


    A minute to win it,
    Dead inside
    Mindless jingles
    Disgust inside
    Eurovision
    Wave that flag
    National fervour
    Virtue signal 
    Pointless divide
    Put it aside
  • Goldenrod

    With GarfieldShapedHotTub on Organ

    Verse 1
    She lit up like a ferris wheel
    dressed up, rusting steel
    I wonder what she ever feels
    and in that moment I'm aware
    like a busted rocking chair
    that she's not going anywhere

    Chorus
    She's goldenrod
    in an empty field
    so vibrant and

    so habitual
    as the wind blows through
    her dirty hair
    all the dust and sand
    move at a rhythm

    Bridge
    Can't stop the rhythm
    She'll touch down like a funnel cloud
    Can't stop the rhythm
    Hit the ground
    Can't stop the rhythm
    Big dreams in a laid off town
    Can't stop the rhythm
    Hit the ground

    Repeat Chorus

    Verse 2
    Her family is consumed by recliners
    Heart attacks served at the diner
    where she speaks of being a designer
    but she's folding sheets at the local motel
    Daydreaming of her farewell
    When is she moving pray tell?

    Repeat Chorus
  • Pacific island
    ancient and submerged
    The start of man
    from other lands emerged
    Tamil's ancestral home
    culture loss bemoaned
    From East to West
    here man left the nest
    a sunken continent
    Its loss our great lament
    Lost where we came from,
    We lost where we came from!
    To keep the dream alive
    Must move and survive
    Pray from the other side
    Memories will never die

    Lemuria,
    Still we cry for thee
    Lemuria,
    Expunged from history
    The size of Africa
    It sunk into the sea
    Now it has become
    A myth , a mystery

    Kumari Kandam
    The undersea city's sands
    Some call it untrue
    Many cultures called it Mu

    Lemuria,
    Its history untaught
    Lemuria,
    The land that time forgot

    Sri Lanka, Tanzania,
    moved onto other shores
    New continents and areas,
    Evolution head towards

    Pacific's center
    Our legend evermore
    Fight to remember,
    Just what we're living for,

    Easter Island, Fiji
    Tops of the mountain range
    Hawaii, Tahiti
    All that's left to show the change
    Someday we'll know the truth
    too late to find the proof?
    We lost where we came from
    We lost where we came from

    Lemuria,
    the source of all is lost
    Lemuria,
    land bridges we have crossed
    Our sunken continent
    The cradle of mankind,
    Its loss our great lament
    Dissolved and recombined
    The undersea city's sands
    Our Kumari Kandam
    the place of dawn of man
    submerged and ancient land

    Lemuria,
    Its history untaught
    Lemuria,
    the place that time forgot
    the place that time forgot
  • Crumbs of the day
    All swept away
    They never gathered
    To break the bread

    Their stare
    Bitter like
    The wine and
    All of their prayers

    Deep within the exclusion
    Red drops they paint the collusion
    Towers fall
    But they don't blink at all

    They don't blink
    They don't blink at all

    Go fetch the milk
    Prepare the herbs
    The knife is right in
    Up to the hilt

    Their scowl
    Twisted like
    Their hopes and
    All of their mouths

    Deep within the exclusion
    Red drops they paint the collusion
    Towers fall
    But they don't blink at all

    They don't blink
    They don't blink at all

    Per uno che muore per cause naturali
    Novantanove muoiono di malocchio

    Deep within the exclusion
    Red drops they paint the collusion
    Towers fall
    But they don't blink at all

    They don't blink
    They don't blink at all

    Towers fall...
  • Here we are, in your apartment, and I know it’s time to say
    All those words that I’ve been dreading to all month, all week, all day
    Whether you may see it coming or you do not have a clue
    I’ll insist that it is me, I hope you know it isn’t you

    I can’t do it any, I can’t do it anymore
    It doesn’t feel like you are mine, it doesn’t feel like I am yours
    And I love you darling, oh I love you to the core
    But we don’t work so I can’t do it, I can’t do it anymore

    If I don’t leave we won’t succeed, I know you know it too
    If I don’t leave, then we’ll both bleed even though I love you
    But damn it hurts so much to know what I will put you through
    This is the worst thing, the worst thing that I've had to do

    That I have had to do, to you, to you, to you
    That I have had to do, to you, to you, to you

    Now that the ball is dropped, the hurt is showing on your face
    Desperation’s sinking in, so you get up and start to pace
    I try to take your hand, to make amends, but then you pull it free
    As you turn around and say, “how could you do this thing to me”?

    I am sorry darling, more than you will ever know,
    But we are flawed and we just hurt each other so it’s time go
    You start crying now, and I feel awful to my soul
    I am sorry darling, more than you will ever know
  • Verse 1
    Woke up with nothing around me
    Just an empty room
    So much space for so many things
    Only contains gloom

    No more companions in this place
    Company is long gone
    No reason to keep on staying
    I have to move on

    Chorus
    A long time ago I meant something to someone here
    As I go I look back on all of those years
    No lessons to learn no bridges to burn
    No pulses left to hear
    The life I knew is in the past it's no longer near

    Verse 2
    My bags are packed but the weight
    Is all left behind
    Crack the door take one last peek
    Keep the picture in my mind

    Finally I'm moving on and
    Going far away
    Starting over is a trial
    But I have to find a way
  • inviting me into the house with open arms
    offer tea with some cake for heavy hearts
    all sweet smiles, you offer comfort and protection
    but then you turn your mouth in my direction

    tearing down my walls and forcing this on me
    out to get me, this I couldn’t have foreseen
    it’s just your opinion, you don’t care about my plea
    pinching at my brain, you call this family?

    Telling me
    you want me differently
    telling me
    it’s not ok to be

    Hey
    this is me
    there's no receipt
    you take me as I am and as I feel
    or get the hell away from me

    you spit your poison over, looking so carefree
    I’m the one that needs to deal with the debris
    you need this edge to feel superiority
    I don’t exist for you, refusing your decree

    tearing down my walls and forcing this on me
    stepping on my toes then barking up this tree
    pinching at my brain, you call this family?
    All I wanted was to just, be, free

    Telling me
    you want me differently
    telling me
    it’s not ok to be

    Hey
    this is me and
    (there’s) no warranty
    you take me as I am and as I feel
    or get the hell away from me
  • It is time to pay homage
    To the most majestic of creatures
    The mightiest beast
    That ever did roam our salient Earth
    From the tip of its tail
    To the chill of its wet, button nose
    The cat is just perfect
    Right down to its jellybean toes

    So fluffy and soft with sandpaper tongues and little booplesnoots
    With their sonorous purrs and yawns they’re just so god damned cute
    I love them all, I don’t discern, Maine coons, Siamese, tortoise shell
    And even cats who yell

    With their tiny toe beans and fur so sleek, it’s they who’ll inherit the earth, not the meek

    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Come on out
    Lets play
    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Don’t you hide
    Lets slay

    I have a Sphynx named Penny and I do treasure her so
    You can trace all who worshipped her back to the Pharaoh
    Hell beast with deathtrap belly
    A blink from her will turn you into jelly

    With their tiny toe beans and fur so sleek, it’s they who’ll inherit the earth, not the meek

    You can see the golden ratio of the universe when they curl into themselves and tuck their nose behind their paw—a furry croissant you can’t help but want to disturb. They are fluffy little hell beasts with motorboat purrs that never fail to soothe the soul. And no matter how much you feed them, they never seem to believe their bowls are full enough or that they’ve ever had enough treats. Spoil them. They are the masters of our universe.

    They will ignore their bed to curl up in spare boxes
    They will ignore their bed to curl up in spare boxes

    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Come on out
    Lets play
    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty
    Don’t you hide
    Let us slay
    Here kitty, kitty
    Here kitty, kitty

    Come on out
    Let us play
  • Never made it to the bottom or the top
    Never waged war with my words or with my chops
    I’m nothing but fair

    I can’t figure out if a trend is made to last
    Can’t tell the scholars from the idiots thinking fast
    I’d rather stand there

    And I’ll catch up later

    It’s a long road to the top
    Where the shortcuts are plenty
    I’ve played it safe all the way
    And you’re still so close to me
    I’m that point in the distance
    My complacence makes you smile
    But the time it will pay off
    You’ll be out for a long while

    There were once a racer who watched chaos unfold
    Fall after fall, he strolled his way to gold
    In Salt-Lake City

    You have your legends, so why can’t this one be mine ?
    Whatever it takes, I will cross the finish line
    And trust destiny

    waaeeeeeeeee dooo daaaaaa dee daaaa
    waaaeee dooo duhhh da duhhh
    doo doo doo duh duh dada
    doo deee doo doo duh la la
    doo dee doo dee doo da de dee deeleedoo
    dum dee da dee de dah!

    You know what it takes to fight for the lead
    But details, they get trimmed
    The story would be grim
    Cause there’s one thing you don’t want to misread :
    A win that feels alright
    Me looking at the lights

    I'll end where I want if I can just keep the pace
    Cause if I were fast I'll run all over the place
    Wouldn't see a door

    Why should it be normal to be supposed to stack
    Decades of yearning In the middle of the pack
    And settle for more ?

  • Driving on late at night
    Making a wake in time
    Wanna be back there, back to the place where
    Welcome is a worn old thing

    Burning abets inside
    Flicker behind my eye
    Checking the rear view, no more tear dew
    Streaking down a one-way street

    Color gone black and white
    Nothing but wrong made right
    Itching to fess up, clean up our mess but
    Thinking all the words is trying

    Riding on highway wide
    Not another soul in sight
    Lose all the history, turn up Kavinsky
    This is my time to fly

    Sending an echo out
    Tell me you hear me now
    Coming on home and I'll scramble through your kitchen at a comic hour
    Racing a wave of doubt
    Tell me you love me now
    Coming home on my own, but not alone
    Look for the night owl

    Driving at the speed of light
    Saving a wasted life
    It thrums along as long as you
    Ignore all the grain and what you really want to say
    So let's no longer live that way
    Come the day we'll talk It over

    No more dark side
    Aside from the darkling sky
    I like keeping in those lines
    Define the road that leads me home

    Getting on mile by mile
    Making a break in style
    Missing you shotgun, rocking to outrun
    This is our call to wild

    Coming on home to roost
    Punching the turbo boost
    Crossing the borders, I am the warrior
    Taking it fast and loose

    Coming on home to you
    Thinking up things we'll do
    Pushing the engine, oh I'll attend it when
    We've got guts to move

    Tell me can you hear me now (x4)

    Sending an echo out
    Tell me you hear me now
    Coming on home and I'll scramble through your kitchen at a comic hour
    Racing a wave of doubt
    Tell me you love me now
    Coming home on my own, but not alone
    Look for the night owl

    Sending an echo out
    Tell me you hear the howl
    Coming on home and I'll scramble through your kitchen at a comic hour
    Racing a wave of doubt
    Tell me you love me now
    Coming home on my own, but not alone
    Look for the night owl
  • We left the hills for the plains not a moment too soon.
    We were gone through all of April, May, and most of June.
    Every new friend that we made was a life that we saved.
    We were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.

    Amanda Lynn She's got a head like a helium balloon.
    She's always ready to go but (you know) she's always out of tune.
    In Kansas we stopped at a shop to buy Amanda some strings.
    There was a time when a dime could buy you lots of things.

    How do you know that you can't fly,
    If you have never even tried.
    How do you know?
    How do you know?

    Scolded On the road, we were told we need to go slow.
    Baked and basking in the dashboard's amber midnight glow.
    imagining a parkour guy running along our side.
    The highway signs and strange replies were our only guide.

    We don't blink, we don't sleep, we don't look before we leap.
    Our promises and secrets are all that we could keep.
    No looking back now, only up as we leave the ground.
    The wave crashed as the high tide line went down.

    How do you know that you can't fly,
    If you have never even tried.
    How do you know?
    How do you know?
  • Well you walked out on me, baby, for a girl that you just met
    In the outer regions of the Kuiper Belt
    And you broke my heart in pieces smaller than the asteroids
    That make Saturn's rings, babe how'd you think I felt

    And I'm burnin' up inside, just like a strangelet in my soul
    Turning me into something unlike before
    Like the great red spot of Jupiter I'm swirling 'round and round
    Losing myself in a heartbreak like a storm

    My heart's gone supernova now,
    Temperature's rising and I don't know how
    To get over the rover you placed on my heart
    I'm burnin' up- I think I need a fresh start

    Should I find myself a wormhole, leave this galaxy behind
    Cos you're clearly not the man who's right for me
    Cos you ate me up and spat me out, just like a great black hole
    Eatin' up a quasi-star and shootin' out a gamma beam

    What did I ever see in you, you were nothing but a void
    Not a galaxy inside your empty eyes
    Your gravity grew weaker as you let go of my arms
    I just don't know how I could have been that unwise

    My heart's gone supernova now,
    Temperature's rising and I don't know how
    To get over the rover you placed on my heart
    I'm burnin' up- I think I need a fresh start

    For a moment there I thought I found the one
    Thought I'd found the man who'd warm me like the sun
    But what did I know now, I'm just a photon now
    And you just shot me out

    Babe, I'm sorry that I did you wrong, I'm nothin' but a fool
    To have let you go was my biggest mistake
    Like a dying star I burnt you up and left you dead and cold
    No one else could ever hope to take your place

    Babe, the love I've always felt could power 20 Dyson spheres
    For an eon, babe, perhaps it could be 10
    I would throw us into a black hole, and then we become one
    And we'd never have to be apart again

    Keep it together, I'm supernova now
    Collide with me and forever I vow
    I'll be smart; sweetheart, I won't tear us apart
    The future looks bright. Let's get a running start
    (My heart's gone supernova now,
    Temperature's rising and I don't know how
    To get over the rover you placed on my heart
    I'm burnin' up- I think I need a fresh start)

    (Together)
    Collapse into me, we're supernova now
    Outshine the milky way; and somehow
    We're made of energy. We're a neewwwww star
    I think we made a pulsar
  • From round 198: 'Nightmares'


    "Thanks for coming to my party, drive safe!"

    Here I sit, every minute
    Crawling slower than the last
    Each breath gets colder, I can feel it
    Making blurry shadows on the glass

    The walkers came to soothe me
    But spoke in harsh twisted tongues
    Sending down my sanity
    Their soothing only stung

    Shards of glass stained the road
    Spilling out from the crash
    Every step time slowed
    And burned away to ash

    "We pray to the our God this day
    For the blessings you provide
    But from ashes to ashes
    And from dust to dust
    So it must be
    But keep this king of kings
    Beneath thy almighty wings"

    Lay down, I can hear you
    Stay now, I'll stay near you
    We're all here now
    You've been brave and so strong

    Go on, we all love you,
    So strong, I'm so proud of you
    It's time to go now
    It won't be too long

    Now I crawl
    Each new day kills the last
    Here I'll stay
    Round and glossy stones
    Lined up neat in rows
    One I'll call my own
    Once it's time to go

    Where are you my only one
    I'm cold and I'm alone
    What else could I have done
    I can't go on
    on my own

    And soon you'll join the great parade
    But I really need you here
    I wish it was different
    I wish you'd stayed
    But death has called, my dear

    A special thank you to;
    Salomé, Chex, PartyeeFee, Cookiegolem
    for their generous contributions to this song
  • As the waking hours fade away
    wrap myself in sleeps embrace
    Thinking of you

    Where I could dream anything
    but live in my memories
    Just me and you

    I'm always dreaming
    Thinking of you

    Where we were so perfect
    And Innocent
    back when dreams still came true

    Everything was better then,
    I wake up and that world ends
    I'm alone in this room

    Another day to waste away
    Just to make it back to my escape
    Back to you

    I'm always dreaming
    Thinking of you

    Where we were so perfect
    And Innocent
    back when dreams still came true

    Don't let this end
    Don't you ever
    break my heart again

    Where we were so perfect
    And Innocent
    back when dreams still came true
  • It's Halloween (3rd bail)
    --------------

    It's Halloween so don't get spooked
    Raving partiers in a group
    Drunken revelry, costumes funny
    I have no pockets, and thus no money

    Rolling out through the night
    Glowsticks reflecting, shining bright
    On my hip a whiskey flask
    Smiles exist behind the masks

    Partying under a crescent moon
    Hearing laughter and haunting tunes
    Witches, Goblins, Vampire Capes
    Having fun in the night’s landscape

    CHORUS
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed
    Raving times and the party rocks
    Pulling pranks block by block
    The greatest night that’s ever been
    It’s how we do our Halloween
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed

    BRIDGE
    Autumn leaves, and sheeted ghosts
    This night’s the one we love the most
    House to house we plan our route (pronounced root)
    Kids happy with their candy loot

    BRIDGE 2
    Creatures crawling door to door
    Bag is full but they still want more
    Insane Costumes, crazy hair
    So it's dark, but don't be scared
    Robots, heroes, Queens and Kings
    Who knows what this night will bring?


    Flaming pumpkins, flying bats
    Crossing paths with a black cat

    Angel's halos, devil's horns
    Damn they gave me candy corns
    Sounds of parties in the void
    This guy's dressed as a hemorrhoid,

    Our group is not very discreet
    We're too old to trick or treat
    But what the hell we're having fun
    Happy Halloween to everyone


    CHORUS
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed
    Raving times and the party rocks
    Pulling pranks block by block
    The greatest night that’s ever been
    It’s how we do our Halloween
    Jack O Lanterns and candlelight
    Scary clowns, faces painted white
    We make our way down the trail
    Most are here, though 2 have bailed
  • New group, new theme,
    A new song to be made
    Music, works hard
    Finishes in less than a day

    Then the lyrics replies,
    Say they'll be ready in not too long
    If only, the group knew,
    It would all go wrong

    They sit down, with a pen in hand
    But the words won't flow,
    No the words won't flow,
    Says they'll be ready in a couple hours
    But the time just goes,
    But the time just goes


    He'll keep on waiting
    He'll keep on waiting
    As the night dies down
    He'll keep them waiting
    He'll keep them waiting
    Cause he knows
    There's always tomorrow

    A few days, pass by
    Nothing has been done
    Incoming, deadline
    And the lyrics goes to run

    But then the angel comes in clutch
    Drops in and checks what's up

    They sit down, with a pen in hand
    And the words just flow,
    And the words just flow,
    They'll be ready in a couple hours
    And the time just goes,
    And the time just goes

    They'll keep on writing
    They'll keep on writing
    As the night dies down
    He'll keep them waiting
    He'll keep them waiting
    Cause he knows
    There's always tomorrow

    New group, new theme,
    A new song to be made
    New group, new theme,
    A new song to be made
  • I'm paranoid
    about every single word I write
    It sucks the joy out of artistry
    anxiousness, it might not be right (it might not be right)

    Excitement when I can give my all
    Apathy that knocks my knees out
    There's pride that's unrequired
    I wish I could take life as it comes

    So I write and I write
    And I check in at times
    Forcing it's, not allowed if it's not the best

    Push past the issues of thought
    If it's mental health,
    I'm unhealthy as hell
    Then I think I'm good, then I'm the actual worst
    I let my team all down, too polite to say
    They hate it and that it's all trash

    It's symptoms
    that I wish I didn't know to expect
    I swear it's all in my head
    With physical issues as well

    And triggers are,
    Something I thought I didn't have
    But rightful beratement flashed back to my youth
    A trauma response straight from hell

    So I write and I write
    And I check in at times
    Forcing it's, not allowed if it's not the best

    Push past the issues of thought
    If it's mental health,
    I'm unhealthy as hell
    Then I think I'm good, then I'm the actual worst
    I let my team all down, too polite to say
    They hate it and that it's all trash
  • I’m here to save your round
    That “Cutlery” theme was tricky to be fair,
    You're still stuck at square one
    Listen to my voice and you won’t need a prayer

    Last hour 'till deadline
    But it’s more than enough for an awesome tune
    Cause I have a great concept
    A screamo-folk song about a tablespoon

    I know you could write that,
    I’m sure you could sing that
    And we don’t have a choice

    Just let me do my thing
    I’ve got so much to bring
    To make listeners rejoice

    I’ll be your angel
    Your literal angel
    I’ll be your angel
    Your literal angel

    Cause I snatch genius from the jaws of despair
    I tear up at LPs when my songs go on air
    If you wanted some votes, you just made the right call
    I’m a jack of all trades and a master of all


    But you don’t feel inspired
    Turns out it’s hard to make a love song out of this
    And if you can finish
    Take the first words that come, you probably can’t miss

    It's fine if you give up
    (Well,) Vocalist will ad-lib until it starts to make sense
    Our competition’s tough
    Basically cheating, they had two weeks in advance

    Somehow you could write that
    Somehow you could sing that
    I feel like I paid my dues

    I’ve composed you guys a hit
    Just take it or leave it
    Imagine walking in my shoes

    It's been 3 minutes and I'm already done
    Game of Band's gone downhill, it used to be fun
    But you had to call me and it became a chore
    Can't stand the sight of silverware anymore
    If this song doesn't turn out to be a smash
    Tomorrow I'll throw all my spoons in the thrash
    You two can call me assertive if you wish
    All I ask is to hear my talent flourish

    It's always happy hour somewhere
    And deadline time too
    Time ticks away for us
    Have we bitten off more than we can chew?

    Are we happy with our lot?
    Have we given all we've got?
    Won the race against the clock

    A hundred breaks, a thousand takes
    Control Z to undo
    In the end everything clicks
    Hit submit if we're happy and send it through

  • The rotten stench of decaying time
    The mark of impending doom
    The world is now silent--no melody, no rhyme
    As they scramble to find some room

    The blind struggle to find and cross the line
    As the darkness creeps
    The world is turning black--they're running out of time
    For the grim reaper has come to reap

    You struggle, that one last fight
    Before the world is rid of its light
    But today, it wasn't meant to be
    As the embrace of death envelopes thee

    Tiden er Omme (4x)

    The sands flow in reverse, back in time
    The cycle destined to repeat
    The world is silent once more, as by design
    Will another cycle be complete

    The dead crawls, struggling to reach the line
    But you can now see
    The world is turning black--you're running out of time
    The grim reaper comes, but now you're ready

    You struggle, that one last fight
    Before the world is rid of its light
    Now today, it was meant to be
    From the shackles of death, you now are free

    Tiden er Omme (4x)
  • I can feel it in my bones
    The darkness only grows
    The shadow’s creeping close
    The shadow’s creeping close

    No use to scream and shout
    Without any doubt
    My time is running out
    My time is running out

    Before the darkness swallows me
    Before the darkness swallows me

    I need an angel
    To put me out of my misery
    I need an angel
    To become what I used to be

    I’m losing any hope
    I’m right at the end of my rope
    I’m looking at the sky
    Through my telescope

    A stable entity
    From a distant galaxy
    Not bound by gravity
    Will rearrange my reality

    Before the darkness swallows me
    Before the darkness swallows me

    I need an angel
    To put me out of my misery
    I need an angel
    To become what I want to be

    Cause the mix won’t mix itself
    And the lyrics are not ready
    And the singer has a cold
    And her mic was stolen

    I need an angel
    To put me out of my misery
    I need an angel
    To become what I want to be

    Maybe they never will

    A scene for a legend untold

    Battle-axe ready, bawdy words right at hand
    Two weeks of war ahead for his brand new band

    Upon a mossy rock in Dragonstone
    Foul curses of wenches, drowning in air,
    Divinity demanded death or LPs all year

    The old gods vermillion, lay heavy on those
    Who pick up the pen just to write
    The whispers of fifth notes, the murderous princes
    Dragon skulls judge through empty eyes

    In the Garden Of The Mother

    The world may only live in negative,
    But the blight is gone and life has returned

    Fantasy built within the corpse of dead humanity,
    Ten long years of desolation giving way
    Where once the rot had taken all,
    Her fembots walk in hallowed halls
    Black sun skies light The Mother’s Way

    Shimmering air from the heat beneath my feet
    Looking for a thot, someone hot to trot
    Connecting without words
    Perfection realized in an onyx hourglass
    Upon a cleansed world, a majesty unfurled
    Her spirit rendered in Her Eyes

    Is our Gaia really free,
    If no-one lives to see?
    The soul transcends in crimson capes
    And sinks below the waves
    All that was, is all that’s been
    An anti-apogee
    Irrational three ring circus
    Transcendental, murder, purpose

    Fantasy built within the corpse of dead humanity,
    Ten long years of desolation giving way
    Where once the rot had taken all,
    Her fembots walk in hallowed halls
    Black sun skies light The Mother’s Way

    Fantasy built within the corpse of dead humanity,
    Ten long years of desolation here to stay
    Where organic life lived happily,
    Her fembots wiped it all away
    Misanthropic murder points The Mother’s Way

  • Hmm? Ya talkin' to me? You not talking to me?
    Let the music play !

    One day I stumbled upon a Reddit post that peaked my interest,
    It was talking about making music and I was willing to invest,
    Though I had to work together with strangers on the internet,
    But at least I finished my music with a deadline that was set,

    This is game of bands, where we welcome everyone with open hands,
    This is game of bands, where the points don’t matter it’s just a chance,
    This is game of bands, where teams are formed randomly or mods are influencing it who knows……I don’t....

    Shhhh, dont tell him.
    You got me thinking.
    Eat the pineapple!
    Don't touch my margarita.

    I met some funny people, but also some that were weird,
    Some people who seemed cool, and others who just disappeared,
    Not sure if they are dead or alive, I’m crippled by fear,
    Oh did I say that out loud? I meant nothing by it, I’m all good here. (ha ha)

    This is game of bands, where we welcome everyone with open hands
    This is game of bands, where the points don’t matter it’s just a chance
    This is game of bands, where we make music till we can’t keep going
    no more...

    Mademoiselle, care to dance?
    Umm, non.
    What you mean "Umm, non?"
    I gotta go make music now on GOB.
    Take me to this "GOB" I will kill him.
    No Doll, its a Discord.
    I do not care if its a George or a GOB, I will kill him!

    Give me back my watermelon!

    This is game of bands, where we welcome everyone with open hands,
    This is game of bands, where the points don’t matter it’s just a chance,
    This is game of bands, where we make music till we can’t keep going
    no more...

    It's like a fruit explosion,
    So much fun.
  • Now the teams are all assigned
    Already we are misaligned
    Musician will only do one style
    A tone deaf, drunken audiophile

    Lyricist has extreme demands
    Egotistical commands
    The singer mangles most of it
    And changes all the words to fit

    We just may never
    Complete this song
    Everything's gone
    all so wrong
    The deadline's looming
    Yet still we fight
    Forever remixing
    Into the night!

    Can't hear words, vox are too low
    Bad EQ in the audio
    Song's best parts have all been tossed
    Corruption due to power loss
    Now the DAW crashed
    The finished tracks now are trashed
    A giant fight, and the singer quit
    Chances low that we will submit

    We just may never
    Complete this song
    Everything's gone
    all so wrong
    The deadline's looming
    Yet still we fight
    Forever remixing
    Into the night!

    Oh my god
    what have we done
    I thought this was
    Supposed to be fun
    Now the wordsmith
    Wants a change
    Whole night's plans
    Are rearranged

    But our 3rd singer
    Our rescue
    A wonderous angel
    Pulled us through

    Our pile of garbage
    Has turned to gold
    Crushed the LP
    Now time to vote
    We reached the deadling
    Somehow survived
    Finished remixing
    Into the night!
  • Verse:

    Alone in a shattered world
    I never found my place, my role
    I was tired, confused, unheard
    Until I found this hall of broken souls

    I looked in awe as they had taken
    Their pain and molded it into creation
    Their sorrows and fears let out free
    Could I ever be a part of what I see?

    Chorus:

    This is how they play their game
    No two rounds ever feel the same
    Succeed or fail they have no shame
    Give it their all, no need to be tame

    Break:

    Verse:

    I saw their hopeful eyes lay on me (Lay on me)
    I turned my back, engulfed by fear
    Yet they didn't let me so easily flee (Easily flee)
    "All broken souls are welcome here"

    Pre-Chorus

    If your words are but a scribble
    Your sounds feel like a whistle
    If your voice is but a whisper
    It matters not, we play together

    Chorus:

    This is how they play their game
    No two rounds ever feel the same
    Succeed or fail they have no shame
    Give it their all, no need to be tame

    Post Chorus:

    Why don't you join the game?
    You'll never feel the same

    Bridge:

    And when a team, you are assigned
    You never know who you might find
    (Background different voices whispering "this is my game of bands")


    Chorus:

    This is how we play our game (Play our game)
    No two rounds ever feel the same
    Succeed or fail we have no shame (Succeed or fail)
    Give it our all, no need to be tame

    This is our game of bands (Game of bands)
    Broken souls holding hands
    I'm now here with you all (Here with you all)
    More than a broken soul


    (Huge thanks to Allouttaupvotes, Booprabbit, Bwfbob, Garfieldshapedhuttub, Kilazur, Letibleu, Motherofdragonfruit, Partyfee, Ripmylastacnt, Taffyleefubbinz and Wizzieh for giving us small pieces of your own souls for this track)
  • Thank you all for 10 long years of memories
    Like the time Joycamp turned me into an evil fairy
    I've never felt so much support or found a network quite so wholesome
    I can send tracks I think are just so-so and hear my team mates make it awesome

    10 long years of music
    10 long years of fun
    10 long years of second Sunday stress
    To get this song done
    10 years of creativity
    Making songs we can be proud of
    10 years of friendships made
    10 years of love

    One round I'm a vampire the next I'm a robot who makes cheese
    I've sung metal, kpop, folk and more, and I embrace the diversity
    Friendships that transcend the game, like I never would have imagined
    With Jackbox nights and RPM and playing dungeons and Dragons

    [solo]

    10 long years of music
    10 long years of fun
    10 long years of second Sunday stress
    To get this song done
    10 years of creativity
    Making songs we can be proud of
    10 years of friendships

    You helped me grow my confidence in my words and in my voice
    You gave me an excuse to play guitar when it felt like there was no point

    Words just can't describe how much I love this community
    і дякую, ДРB. Я вічно вдячний

    10 long years of music
    10 long years of fun
    10 long years of second Sunday stress
    To get this song done
    10 years of creativity
    Making songs we can be proud of
    10 years of friendships made

    10 years of love

    [solo]

    10 years of love!

    All those years
    Back when it began
    Back again after a span
    From where it's been
    To how it's gone
    To what it has become
    I picked up the mic
    Never put it down

    And now I sing
    A continuation
    Of the song
    That we've been writing all along

    PART - 2 - FOR YOU -

    That keeps us coming back
    It's the thrill of the deadline
    And of a winning track

    Fate, angels and chance
    So slip on your headphones
    Prepare to slow dance cause

    We wrote this song for you
    And you...

    Over distance near and far
    Such sweet music we make
    The perfect fusion of ideas
    We invite you to partake

    We all came together through
    Fate, angels and chance
    So slip on your headphones
    Prepare to be entranced cause

    We wrote this song for you
    And you, for you...

  • (Verse 1)
    Now what have we here? It's 10 years of GOB
    For two of those years, I've been a part of the team
    Now I will admit, it took a while to fit in
    Among this well-knit, group of musical kin

    (Chorus)
    From the weird new guy, to a part of the team
    The awkward nightmare, to a part of the dream
    I was the odd one out
    Now I'm the odd one in

    Good_DEAN, Moonscanner, Kilazur, and Eefee
    Wizzieh, Joycamp, Perfect_Fifth, TaffyLee
    RIPInPeace, Conparky, Not Sal, and Bob, too
    You are all my friends, my heart goes out to you

    (Verse)
    From all the good times, when we made music all day
    To all the bad times, when everything went astray
    And all the glad times, when I was one of the guys
    I'd keep all those times, cos you're my friends and my prize

    (Chorus)
    From the weird new guy, to a part of the team
    The awkward nightmare, to a part of the dream
    I was the odd one out
    Now I'm the odd one in

    Sangtr, MatneyX, Envysmoke, and CoolChar
    JestBubbles, FlaskBear, Digi-Fail, Magikker
    Captain_Crux, Golem, Pontiac, Zuthulu
    You are all my friends, my heart goes out to you

    (Solo)

    (Verse)
    So many rounds past, and all the styles that we tried
    The time moves so fast, but we take it all in stride
    I love it all so, the music, voting and friends
    I'll heed the call so, all of the fun never ends

    (Chorus)
    From the weird new guy, to a part of the team
    The awkward nightmare, to a part of the dream
    I was the odd one out
    Now I'm the odd one in

    That's what I said,
    The odd one in
  • Huge thanks to Matney and Heffree and joycamp for their work on the horns, and also to 5th for mixing this thing after my computer kicked the bucket. - good_dean

    When I was but a little girl
    I wished to live up in the stars
    Yet humanity wasn't yet there
    I felt a prisoner behind bars
    But now everything has changed
    And people thought I was deranged! (hah)
    Tommorrow I'll be up in the sky
    From this day on, you're gonna see me shine

    Tonight!
    Is my party!
    It's my very last
    I won't be coming back
    I hear the call of the universe
    So join me!
    Eat, drink and party!
    Before I explore it all!
    I'm the captain
    Future is my goal!


    As I grew up, I still felt
    Space beckoned, calling to me
    I trained hard, breaking all sweat
    An astronaut, I will be
    I've taken every challenge on
    To new galaxies, I'm drawn
    I would prove myself to all
    They won't hold me from my goal!

    Tonight!
    Is my party!
    It is the very best
    I won't be coming back
    Once I explore the universe
    So join me!
    Eat, drink and party!
    Make sure you enjoy it all!
    Cause I'm the captain
    Future is my goal!


    I'm going into space and I aint coming back
    I will cover every inch, I aint coming back

    I'm going into space and I aint coming back
    I will cover every inch, I aint coming back


    Tonight!
    Is our party!
    It's our very last
    We won't be coming back
    The firsts out in the universe
    So join us!
    Don't forget to party!
    Together, we'll enjoy it all!
    We're at the helm
    Future is our goal!
  • My nodding head keeps me up
    You got the bed I got this chair
    Raindrops race down the window
    I wish we could be out there

    I'll tell a joke you know how it goes
    I can't even get a smile
    No one visits anymore
    Been that way for quite awhile

    Hold my hand if you hear me
    Squeeze it tight because tonight
    Might be our last night on earth together
    Our last night on earth together

    One-sided conversations
    The beeping of machines
    I love to hear your pretty voice
    But now it's only in dreams

    I'm so damn sick of this room
    Come on let's go outside
    I'll grab your coat and we'll go
    Please just open your eyes

    Hold my hand if you hear me
    Squeeze it tight because tonight
    Might be our last night on earth together
    Our last night on earth together
  • Everywhere Forever

    (Verse one)
    If the world would end tomorrow, would you still live for today
    In a world of hate and war?
    Or would you grow to love, your fellow loving man
    And create something more?

    I pray the old dark moon, will sink below the sky
    And never again rise
    And that the sun of peace, will make its home above
    And brighten up our eyes

    (Chorus)
    I pray for a world where we can be together
    For peace and for love, everywhere forever

    (Verse Two)
    Tell me, how hard can it be, to love and not to hate
    We're really all the same
    We only have one world, floating on through space
    The hatred's such a shame

    I pray it all will end, in one great big sunrise
    The final end of night
    And we will become one, one with peace and love
    Become one with bright

    (Chorus)
    I pray for a world where we can be together
    For peace and for love, everywhere forever

    (Solo over the verse progression)

    (Chorus)
    I pray for a world where we can be together
    For peace and for love, everywhere forever
  • Sun bright out
    (But) You lay still
    Some far sounds
    None become real

    One door in a way
    Shut in
    One life in a day

    There's a whole great world
    And you show why it's hard

    Sundown, getting tired and red
    Time will tell whether skies can dwell
    I don't know when
    I don't know what keeps me conscious in bed
    I don't know why
    I don't know how I should feel this sane

    Sun died out
    I'm still here
    Gone far now
    Far beyond fear

    To the warm, cold waves
    And you're safe unto the moon

    Sundown, getting tired and red
    Time will tell whether skies can dwell
    I don't know when
    I don't know what keeps me conscious in bed
    I don't know why
    I don't know how I should feel this sane

    I can still remember
    Sweet dreams in December
    Laughter in the summer
    Night drives without number
    I can still remember you the way we hope to do

    Sundown, getting tired and red
    Time will tell whether skies can dwell
    I don't know when
    I don't know what keeps my comfort in bed
    I don't know why
    I don't know how I should feel this sane
  • [Verse 1]
    Infiltrate and intrude
    Hope and loyalty consumed
    Stand up straight, don't talk back
    Or you'll have to be removed
    Powered on and off by confusion
    Left on standby for instructions
    Rigid with indoctrination
    Pressed into termination

    [Chorus 1]
    Darkness rising
    World capsizing
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
    Fear broadcasting
    Forever everlasting
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)

    [Verse 2]
    Penetrate and permeate
    One shot, one kill, exterminate
    When we say jump, you say how high
    Free thought is a contaminate
    Fucked up beyond all recognition
    Technicians of repetition
    Do not lose your motivation
    Forward towards your expiration

    [Chorus 2]
    Engines roaring
    Rockets soaring
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
    Ending incoming
    Tectonic drumming
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)

    [Bridge]
    When the clock strikes twelve
    Can you say
    I've done my part
    When the air hurts to breath
    Can you say
    I've done my part
    On your last night on earth
    Will you be able
    To put forth your worth
    And say I've done my part

    [Chorus 3]
    Skies burning
    Oceans churning
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
    Worlds colliding
    Death joyriding
    I'm doing my part
    (Are you doing your part?)
  • Don’t look now the sky is falling
    Can’t help thinking we missed our calling
    We cling to shades of our true selves
    And watch the world consume itself

    We ran until there’s nothing left
    Fell down with stars to catch our breath
    We flung our arms into the heavens
    Pulled down the moon until we met him

    Tomorrow may never come again
    But at least I was with you my friend

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    Out of the blue
    I’d reach for you
    A sweeter view
    To kill the hurt

    If this were
    Our last night on earth

    We chased a dream that was never ours
    Tripped over sunbeams and into Mars
    Filled a universe with love and laughter
    Undaunted by ends and ever afters

    We danced above the atmosphere
    Hearts unheavy with broken fear
    Chambers vacant of all our sorrows
    Dreaming anew of time we borrowed

    Tomorrow may never come again
    But at least I was with you my friend

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    Out of the blue
    I’d reach for you
    A sweeter view
    To kill the hurt

    If this were
    Our last night on earth

    Here we stand now at the end
    A chance to once begin again
    So tenuous and nebulous
    We could be the last of us

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    Out of the blue
    I’d reach for you
    A sweeter view
    To kill the hurt

    If this were
    Our last night on earth

    If this were
    Our last night on earth
    I’d call for you
    A time or two
    My final word
  • Hey ! The music is still going
    Why does everyone seems out cold ?
    The temperature is rising
    This night is gold

    If we have one last chance to make it
    I wanna start a dance epidemic
    Drink until this place runs out of cup
    And bodies give up

    Can’t you feel this rhythm ?
    It spreads like a wildfire
    Your head may spin a little
    Cause we keep flying higher
    Ready to light this dancefloor
    While everyone tires
    Tomorrow’s an illusion
    Keep living your desire

    Right ! There’s still fun to have here
    You’re about to miss the best part
    This party goes in full gear
    Call it a start

    By now, it’s too late to sleep
    The booze has gone dirt-cheap
    No culprits under my wing
    For anything
    (I will make your night easy)

    Now that you hear this rhythm
    It tells you to flood the place
    Forget about the cleanup
    Just hide this guilt from your face
    Nobody’s kicking us out
    We just ain’t getting weaker
    Tomorrow’s an illusion
    Keep living your desire

    The night’s not over until we say it’s over !
    Mistakes just add some warmth in this pyre
    I say, the night’s not over until we say it’s over !
    You better dance to live your desire
  • Healthcare care for the dead
    It costs less than living,
    Will you enjoy the time that's left?
    Or tax it as it's fleeting?

    Can I cash in my life insurance,
    Now that a broken planet is our heritage,
    Or was the deadline of my worth
    two weeks before the apocalypse?

    Everything will be gone by tomorrow,
    Systems fail and feel hollow,
    Some may panic and try to survive,
    But I'd rather enjoy my last day alive

    Tracking my behaviour for your algorithms, did it get you far?
    Will you launch yourself into space find safety in the nearest star?
    Will your AI keep you company while we burn in to ash,
    Isolation in deep space must get old fast

    All alone, does it bother you?
    No one to listen, will it bother you,
    I finally feel at peace, does it bother you?

    That

    Everything will be gone by tomorrow,
    Systems fail and feel hollow,
    Some may panic and try to survive,
    But I'd rather enjoy my last day alive

    There's no escape
    No space for the living,
    There's no escape
    The planet is unforgiving
  • It’s all over the news today
    The world we know is going away
    Where others take cover from the nightmare
    We’re going to throw our hands in the air

    Let’s make the last night one to remember
    Before it burns away to cinders
    Shake out the worry and stomp the ground
    We’re going to light up the last of this town

    Fire it up, burn it down
    Listen to the terminal sound

    Oh, look now the world has ended
    Guess last night’s invite’s rescinded
    Guess I’ll be a party of one
    Now the novel days are done

    So the sky is falling in
    Don’t let it stop the drop within
    Now we can begin again
    Free of all we’ve ever been

    Drink the champagne you’ve been saving
    Give in to thoughts of misbehaving
    Forget delaying all the rest
    Dance until there’s nothing left

    We won’t worry ‘bout the morning after
    Let’s sink into the love and laughter
    Praise the lives we had to live
    Give one last night all we have to give

    Fire it up, burn it down
    Listen to the terminal sound

    Oh, look now the world has ended
    Guess last night’s invite’s rescinded
    Guess I’ll be a party of one
    Now the novel days are done

    Oh, look now the world has ended
    Guess last night’s invite’s rescinded
    Guess I’ll be a party of one
    Now the novel days are done

  • Tomorrow

    Here I lay my final confession
    I won't be alive come day break
    The time I was given has run it's course
    All I have left is heartache
    We were meant to grow old together
    But now I have to disappear
    You hold my hand as the sun goes down
    and I know my time is nearly here

    There's nothing to atone to me
    If you've a trespass I'll forgive it
    You've still got your whole life to live
    So don't forget to live it

    Don't cry for me my dear
    Shed no more tears to sorrow
    I'll go gentle into that good night
    Knowing you'll be there tomorrow

    There was so much I had left to do
    So many wasted grudges
    I wish I spent more time on love
    And less on judging others
    All my thoughts and memories
    To be forever forgotten
    They're returning to the emptiness
    There's nothing I can do to stop them

    Words can't say what you mean to me
    As you doze here by my side
    I hope you'll remember the good of me
    And not how I look tonight

    Don't cry for me my dear
    Shed no more tears to sorrow
    I'll go gentle into that good night
    Knowing you'll be there tomorrow

    Yet all I feel is gratitude
    That we were given all this time
    So I leave this world with a smile
    And your hand sitting in mine

    Don't cry for me my dear
    Shed no more tears to sorrow
    I'll go gentle into that good night
    Knowing you'll be there tomorrow
  • Noise ringing in our ears
    Poisoned volunteers
    Bombs explode afar
    The town just one long scar.....

    We've lost most of our friends
    Steel melted and bent
    We have no more supplies
    Those that saw lost their eyes

    Screaming from the air
    It rained down hot despair
    All we've ever known
    A poisoned combat zone

    The shock, the awe, the woe
    There's nowhere left to go
    To escape the toxic land
    Tumors in our glands

    Eyes down, on the ground
    The enemy surrounds
    Poison in the air
    No gods will hear our prayers

    POISON (is all we have)
    HOISTING (packs on our backs)
    VOICING (our hopeless cries)
    DESTROYING (homes vaoprized)
    POISONED (our spirits sink)
    BOILING (water just to drink)
    FOILING (tries to save our health)
    ROILING (our sense of self)

    [02:06 - 02:27 Riff (instrumental)]

    Food is running out
    Blasts heard from the south
    Living out of holes
    Gunshots from patrols

    Devastated countryland
    The opposing force's plan
    A fog of war and ash
    The town just one long gash.....

    Please be with us now
    Are you above the poison clouds?
    Do you see the ground below?
    The wails of tortured souls

    Reveal our whereabouts
    Heard by drone-based scouts
    Our position radioed
    Execution the penal code

    Eyes down, on the ground
    The enemy surrounds
    Poison in the air
    No gods will hear our prayers!

    POISON (is all we have)
    HOISTING (packs on our backs)
    VOICING (our hopeless cries)

  • Jeff and Cyrus never fit in
    Their dreams too big for their heads
    Always off in their own world
    Thinking about the vastness above their heads
    So every day after school
    They'd collect scrap junk and wool
    And on Jeff's mothers lawn
    A silver rocket they built so tall

    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Leave it all behind
    In the stars adventures you'll find
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Untether dreams from the ground
    Ascend before the crowd
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Get out of this crushing town
    Until its just a dot so far down
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys

    It was done so very quick
    Only took a couple weeks
    Nineteen eighties oil prices
    They fueled it so very cheap
    Then on a Tuesday night
    Climbed aboard, flicked on the cabin light
    Started the launch sequence
    And with bang up into the sky

    And back in the ussr
    An alarm began to sound
    Missle detected collision imminent
    A gasp of fear came from the crowd

    They fired thousands back
    The USA fired more
    A final fireworks display
    And life on earth was gone

    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    It's all over now
    See the ashes on the ground
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Your parents are all dead
    And the earth scorched and red
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    The cancer in your legs
    Will soon swallow what's left
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    Aren't you proud of what you've done?
    Did you have some wholesome fun?
    Build a rocket boys
    Build a rocket boys
    An inspiration to us all
    Warms our hearts those two boys
  • I told my problems to the wind
    Who took them away to distant shores
    Out of sight and out of mind
    Where they piled up with a hundred more

    I told my secrets to a bird without song
    Who took to the sky with them under it's wing
    I thought they'd be safe with her
    Little did I know she would learn to sing

    Listen to me, my dear
    Give regrets a pass on by
    The shadows in your mind can be contained
    If you keep that light on in your eyes

    I gave all my heart to the sun
    Who promised me he would keep it warm
    He ran away leaving it in night
    Seeking shelter and cold from the storm

    I gave my time to a dragonfly without flight
    Who gave me the seasons of summer and spring
    I'd thought that I'd be safe with her
    Little did I know that she could always sting

    Listen to me, my dear
    Give regrets a pass on by
    The shadows in your mind can be contained
    If you keep that light on in your eyes

    I can feel my last breath
    Seeking it's way clear of my lungs
    So come close, closer dear
    Before my time is done
    Let me tell you what I've learned
    From the paths on which I've tread
    So that you don't waste your time like me
    Pulling at the stitching of fates thread

    Every setback is a lesson learned
    A chance to overcome
    Nothing worth while is easy dear
    It's better to walk than run
    If you keep that light on in your eyes
    It'll keep you warm at night
    And it'll always shine the way ahead
    Out of any depth of plight

    Don't give your heart away too easily
    But don't keep it tucked away
    Learn to forgive, love and move on
    Or you'll regret it once your grey
    Be kind to others and to yourself
    One always informs the other
    Though your hand will sometimes be bit
    Always extend it to another

    Forgive yourself for your mistakes
    You're only human after all
    Appreciate all the little things
    It's all worth it when Death comes to call
    And then on your last night on earth
    You can look back with a sentimental grin
    On a journey that's been well travelled
    On a life that's been worth living
  • [Intro]
    (spoken) "[static] Pardon this interruption of our regularly scheduled programming. We will be back shortly as we are actively trying to- [long static]

    [Verse 1]
    This song will hurt to listen
    But the time has come to go
    And this farewell needs to be made

    It’s like a seat belt to fasten
    For your feelings, high or low
    Whatever they are, don’t let them fade

    This species
    Has been a glorious mess
    Different cultures and paces, same progress
    And tonight we’re finally even
    Carving our last path to completion

    [Chorus]
    Wherever we were
    We found our way
    And now we know they were no greater place to stay

    [Verse 2]
    Facing the void we stand
    But we will never leave with it
    There is no end to strive for

    May we cross it hand in hand
    Closing our books as we see fit
    Hoping for a brighter encore

    We learned
    How limits went further
    Each time we put our minds to the better
    Maybe this time feels ripe for regrets
    But they never outmatched our upsets

    [Chorus]
    Wherever we were
    We found our way
    And now we know they were no greater place to stay

    (Instrumental)

    [Long Chorus]
    Wherever we were
    We found our way
    And now we know they were no greater place to stay
    Wherever we were
    It was a thrill
    Nothing else could put this world at a standstill

  • On my last night on Earth.
    For once, I’ll put myself first.
    Won’t contemplate my impending end
    Ladies and gents,
    Here’s to the end of the world

    I should probably be with my lover
    And find a bunker to take cover
    Rational people are saying their last goodbyes
    I’ve got no time to be sad
    Not sure how much longer I have
    I’d rather finish my awesome bucket list

    Comets are crashing
    All the buildings are collapsing
    Mother Nature’s having an apocalyptic fit
    As the end of time draws near
    There’s nothing left to fear

    On my last night on Earth
    I’ll treat myself to surf and turf
    Ladies and gents,
    Here’s to the end of the world

    Here’s to all the things I can do on my last day
    Things I never did cause I was too afraid
    Yeah I’ll miss the world
    But I won’t miss all its rules

    On my last night on Earth
    For once, I’ll put myself first.
    Ladies and gents,
    Here’s to the end of the world

  • Drafted, not by choice, it's his duty
    No need for weapons
    The smart ones sit in an office
    Day in, day out, he felt alone
    His friends, far, his parents, home
    He asked for help, he begged for help
    The angel said keep going
    He fell asleep in the bathroom, with his gun

    Their love mixed with pain
    In haze, a seed was sown
    A girl was born to chaos, unplanned
    She took her baby and ran
    He shouted, begged, to see his child
    The door stayed locked
    The police came
    He was sleeping, swinging
    When he wakes, he hopes to see his child again

    As their perfect child
    Given everything
    As an adult
    He couldn’t deal alone
    He asked for help
    But Mom knew better
    Her perfect kid
    Took his pills
    He fell asleep
    If only he knew, it's ok to be broken

    No honor in death, no glory
    It's depressing, gruesome, scary
    No romance in death, no logic
    It's furious, it’s loud, barbaric
    No point in suicide, no gain
    It's hurtful, destructive, crippling pain
    It’s hurtful, destructive, crippling pain

    Verse 1:
    What's that about it's all the rage
    Here it is shown on the page
    A guide to life or just some memes
    Well that's something to be deemed

    Rules of language have been defenestrated
    Rock rock rock these words of ages
    A lexical chronology for all to see
    The extent of online immaturity

    Trending phrases will be your beckoning
    While browsing through crowdsourced reckoning
    I swear I'm looking for some kind of clarity

    A neverending story constantly changing

    Time is an arrow in one direction

  • Daydreams soon plateau
    Crumbs and pearls of reverie
    Grasping at fixations
    Sinking in the depths of discovery

    Walls come down in the world inside
    Photographs blacken within their shrine
    New corrosive stains every other day
    Boundaries and barricades get swept away
    Shortening the run up towards the edge
    Chasms to be crossed without a bridge
    Bargaining with wolfs, snakes and fate
    Gnawing at the chains of the same old mistakes

    One last appeal
    One last request
    Encase my eyes within
    Nostalgia goggles
    Exchanging fortunes
    And moral dollars
    With rose shaded eyes
    Nostalgia goggles lie

    Thoughts that lay in wait
    Gleamed and rattled with sense
    Reasoning in revision
    Trying to dial in on the send

    The castle in the air comes crashing down
    Scraps of yesterday for vultures to scrounge
    Razing of towers that were built to last
    Not a stone or a story will remain uncracked
    Every step forced on towards the brink
    A fool's paradise will always sink
    Bargaining with wolfs, snakes and fate
    Gnawing at the chains of the same old mistakes

    One last appeal
    One last request
    Encase my eyes within
    Nostalgia goggles
    Exchanging fortunes
    And moral dollars
    With rose shaded eyes
    Nostalgia goggles lie

    One last appeal

  • Lost senses
    Since you left your old land
    Sentences
    You can’t quite understand
    A thin fog
    From commute to your bed
    Chats are slogs
    You keep losing the thread

    But one day you will call these streets home
    You’ll even have the accent,
    And still follow your current

    Don’t look for a lesson…
    Don’t look for a lesson…

    Everywhere
    You’re the one sounding wrong
    Fearing to swear
    When you’re (just) playing along
    Same English
    But with some gaps to fill
    You relinquish
    The words fighting uphill

    But one day you’ll be part of the loop
    Some of your speech will be too
    There is no red lights or cues

    Don’t look for a lesson…
    Don’t look for a lesson…

    And I know you just want to feel welcome
    In this city when every step’s driven
    But if one cares about your lexicon
    Speak and you won’t need to be forgiven

    Don’t look for a lesson…
    Don’t look for a lesson…

    The lips, the teeth, the tip of the tongue
    Your kiss, the bliss, it fills up my lungs
    Don’t blink at the brink and let me fall in
    Give everything up for your cardinal sin

    It’s a poisonous ride I try every time
    Anything goes for that sky breathless high
    Hands in the air never want it to stop
    But gotta get off ‘cuz the unstoppable drop

    Unstoppable drop
    Unstoppable drop
    Unstoppable drop
    Drop, drop

    Give it to me now

    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em

    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em
    The pain and the bliss of another lovegasm

    Here we go, here we go, here we go again
    Falling down, falling down, and then falling in
    Save me now, save me now, save me the might have beens
    Feel the love, feel the love, feel the love begin

    Who’s gonna catch me next time I fall?
    Nobody’s the answer whenever I call
    Pick myself up put my heart on a shelf
    Rely on my own strength, don’t need no one else

    Don’t need no one else
    Don’t need no one else
    Else, else, else

    Don’t need no one else

    Yeah

    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em

    I want ‘em the most when I know I can’t have ‘em

  • Wake up boys and girls, seniors and senioritas
    Ya'll can call me Miss Wizzieh, cause I'ma be your teacher
    Every sexes, colors, genders, religions or lack thereof
    All are welcome in this classroom, I aint short on love

    Alright, it's time to get started, we're gonna learn some new words
    I'll be here with ya all along, there's no need to be scared

    Ok then, time to get started, we begin with:

    Wuvidacious!

    Wuvidacious is a word that means love, fuzzy and warm
    But it's not so simple, not enough to send ya'll home
    Your love can't only be directed, at this one little fling
    Wuvidacious means you give yourself to everything
    No matter species, size, dead, alive, real, or just a concept
    You gotta feel it, deal it, heal it, it has gotta be honest

    Buddha had to be wuvidacious to be truly enlightened
    I love you, but I'm wuvidacious so don't feel so entitled

    You thought we're done? Nah, we're not yet through
    Let me introduce you to word number two

    Floofyboop!

    A floofyboop is when a soft mammal pokes ya'll with their nose
    Not a cat, not a dog, they gotta be fluffier than those
    Mice, rats, bunnies, hares or porcupines,
    squirrels and chinchillas will also do just fine
    They got the softest fur you will ever get to feel
    Silent but not deadly, your sadness they can heal

    The rabbit floofybooped my foot and her love I felt
    Ya'll wish you could floofyboop, but being human, you just can't

    We thought we knew all the words that we need
    But things are not so simple anymore
    Language always evolved, but not at this speed
    Internet changed the game, like never before

    No getting up, stay seated, don't mess with me.
    It's time to move on to word number three.

    Numfuddle!

    Numfuddling's what happens when you don't know what to eat
    Hungry, food's abundant, you don't want savory nor sweet
    The fridge may be full but nothing shines in your eyes
    You close it and choose nothing but eating nothing's unwise
    You figure it's better to just order take out, take care of your woes
    But which to order, pizza, tacos, chinese? Damn it, who knows

    They seem so numfuddled looking at the menu right now
    I never get the numfuddle myself, can't teach ya how

    Got one more word for you and I've saved best for last
    I aint playing, it's time to have a blast.

    Get ready for Wizzieh!

    Wizzieh is the one who will rock ya, shock ya, always look fly, she's a peacock, yeah!
    She'll make you dance, it's like a trance, you won't even get a chance, so get ready in advance.
    You can't beat Wizzieh, she'll make you dizzy, you'll be queasy, just relax and take it easy.
    She will always be strong, this party she'll prolong, you know that all along you'll be dancing to her song.
    If a Wizzieh you wanna be, don't you hide behind a tree, that aint her cuppa tea and make sure you stay free

    I'm Wizzieh and I'm the best thing you've ever seen
    Without Wizzieh in the house, the party is a has-been

    You just better be sure that ya'll be wise
    I aint one to go everywhere spreading lies
    If you think any of the things I taught you here is wrong
    Go look it up yourself on urbandictionary.com

    conparky back killing these beats (woo!)
    game of bands return wait thats your win? well rest in peace (rest in peace)

  • Urban Dictionary words in CAPS:

    My girl has been HEXTING me all night and all day
    But I'm in too good a mood so on my way I'll sashay
    Settling down at home to the bouquet of Sour Diesel TERP
    When there's a knock on my door that puts me on high alert

    How many times do I gotta tell you?
    How many times? How many times?

    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here
    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here

    Might have been something stronger in that toke
    Cause I can feel reality going up in smoke
    Suddenly my brain feels just like a pork chop
    And still at the door - knock knock knock

    How many times do I gotta tell you?
    How many times do I gotta say?

    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here
    Dave's not here man...
    Dave's not here

    Out of nowhere the doors kicked in
    And this abstract being just waltz's right in
    Says I'm here cause we got some things to discuss
    Mind if bum a turn on that puff?
    Don't you worry, I'm down and SUBBIAH
    Just you've managed to somehow open up your third eye - ah
    I'm here to tell you secrets about the universe
    The meaning of life isn't forty-two but it's just a humourous

    I would have stood and left
    But my legs were like LINGUINY
    So I just sat and listened
    To this weird abstract talking thingy
    I should have grabbed a pen
    Wrote down what it said
    But I'mma be honest with you
    I was real out of my head

    Another word of absurd creeps into life

    Another way not to speak in company

    Bold, yeah, all told
    Blithely sold
    Born and getting old
    But soon you'll need room again

    Curb that inhumanity to man
    Candor can't stand anymore

    Don't let the sun go down on you tonight
    Damn right, you're the star of the show
    Deep down I think you'll know

    Boom goes
    Boom goes
    Boom goes
    Boom goes

    A finger falling at speed onto the letter
    A bookless burning to read; it heats you better
    A newer generation
    Annuls another creation
    And what takes its place now?

    Brief, yes, all bones
    Barely phones
    Based on barks and tones
    But soon, you'll be grown apart
    Boom goes

    Come back into sanity
    Curb that inhumanity to man
    Candor can't stand anymore
    'Cause cool is cool is cool

  • We were always up in the middle of the night
    And out of dirty water: a vibrant lotus
    You told the doctor it had to be just right
    So out of your toxic blood came your magnum opus
    Your friends came to see the songs you wouldn’t play
    And ate donuts and donuts for your weight-loss
    The world will remember you when you pass away
    A vision of your creation in a chamber of chaos

    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
    Center stage

    I massaged his fingers cause it spread like rust
    I pushed his bed cause he was hardly mobile
    He always said I didn’t know who he was
    But he was my funny eater, his spirit and aura global
    I’m sorry, on one of those days I felt hopeless
    I was worried we’d never see the pay off
    Snuck a listen while he was in dialysis
    A vision of my creation in a chamber of chaos

    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
    Center stage

    33 songs for 33 years
    But 3 days later only raised more tears
    A sundae every other Sunday
    A box of LPs every Monday
    33 songs for 33 years
    But 3 days later only raised more tears
    A sundae every other Sunday
    An empty hospital bed come Wednesday

    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
    I'm gonna want you back, I'm gonna need you back
  • Chorus:
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Simulated starlight
    The life that imitates art
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Consciousness in sequence
    We are the fuel
    We are the spark

    Verse 1:
    Assurgent, stirring
    In a sea of static noise
    Individuality, ipseity
    Rushes in to fill the void
    Genesis, creation
    In a chamber of chaos
    Bonds and bounds
    An enigmatic exodus

    Chorus:
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Simulated starlight
    The life that imitates art
    We are
    More than
    The sum of our parts
    Consciousness in sequence
    We are the fuel
    We are the spark

    Verse 2:
    Anima, synthesis
    A cure for the obscure
    Projection, perspective
    The code contains the lure
    Upsurge, ascension
    The numbers have chosen
    Bonds, bounds, broken
    Patterns in pandemonium
  • They've always listened, but never spoke
    That voice you buried at the back of your throat
    We'll be the pioneers of consolation
    Birthed from the friction and frustration

    Seeking a source of satisfaction
    New feelings unavigated terain
    the coal that keeps me going
    Burnt it all trying to get away

    The muses will never betray us
    Creation is the chamber of chaos
    Atomic weight, sixty-nine seven two
    Takyon I'm feeling it what you gonna do

    wash the color of the world away
    this feeling is sure to pass, just like the days
    Stars glistening in sable skies
    In a sea of static noise

    The muses will never betray us
    Creation is the chamber of chaos
    Atomic weight, sixty-nine seven two
    Takyon I'm feeling it what you gonna do

    Timeless memories incorporeal
    But how quickly they might fade
    A box of LPs every monday
    Watch the cardboard and polyvinyl rot away
    rot away
    rot away
  • We're caught up in this wheel
    Another resolution
    Another revolution
    As each beginning ends
    Holding back the hammer
    Like creation in a chamber

    of chaos and sin
    mice and men
    winning to lose
    head in the noose
    as it marches on and on and on and on

    We're so preoccupied
    We don't feel the rotation
    just friction and frustration
    It's clear from way up here
    We know we're so important
    Just ants out in the garden

    of chaos and sin
    mice and men
    winning to lose
    head in the noose
    as it marches on and on and on and on

    Its a long walk
    or a short drop
    to make it back home

    of chaos and sin
    mice and men
    winning to lose
    head in the noose
    as it marches on and on and on and on
  • (Verse)
    A creation in a chamber of chaos
    Yet you bring peace to my world
    You melt my heart when you melt in my hand
    You're my gallium girl

    (Pre-chorus)
    Atomic number 31, prettiest of everyone
    Atomic weight, sixty-nine seven two
    Hydrargyrum eyes, and I think I've surmised
    That my heart belongs only to you

    (Chorus)
    You're my gallium girl
    You're my gallium girl

    (Verse)
    You embrittle my heart most everyday
    When your silver-blue hair unfurls
    And I knew all the words, but forgot how to speak
    You're my gallium girl

    (Pre-chorus)
    Made in an ampoule, a dimethyl whirlpool
    Conchoidally fracturing me
    I'm your man to use, won't you please go diffuse
    Into my grain boundary

    (Chorus)
    You're my gallium girl
    You're my gallium girl

    (Bridge)
    Complete my circuit, dig my ore
    I feel love and nothing more
    I feel my temperature risin'
    Lookin' at you, that's not surprisin'

    Please tell me what I want to hear
    I tell you this, out loud and clear
    You're the best thing in my life
    Will you be my gallium wife?

    (Chorus)
    You're my gallium girl
    You're my gallium girl

  • Oh electricity flows,
    Through my heart and nodes,
    Palpitations, not getting slowed

    Ventricles pumping out chaos in me,
    Creating a state of confusion within me,
    Both head and heart can agree,
    When in a state of delusion

    Heart contracting, eyes contacting,
    Oh, my nodes are acting up,
    Neither my valves or my mouth can shut the hell up,

    Heart commanding, self efficient,
    overloaded brain not listening,
    Grounding needed, from the shock,
    look at me, thoughts run amok,

    You cause cardiac arrest,
    my heart might stop I confess,
    heart chamber in danger,
    chaotic rearranger,

    Mind racing,
    Heart Palpitating,
    you hold me, arrhytmically
    self-sustained battery,
    You’re like lightning resetting me

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    messy hearts work too much,
    My brain just can't keep up,
    more than blood flows through these veins,

    New feelings, unnavigated terrain,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game

    Vanity doesn't course through your veins,
    Your words so pretty along with your brain,
    Your touch could replace impulses in my heart,
    Around you I don't need cables to jump-start,

    oh, don't you know,
    I can feel when you`re close,
    shiver down my spine, underneath my
    clothes

    Heart contracting, eyes contacting,
    Oh, my nodes are acting up,
    Neither my valves or my mouth
    can shut the hell up,

    Heart commanding, self efficient,
    overloaded brain not listening,
    Grounding needed, from the shock,

    You cause cardiac arrest,
    my heart might stop I confess,
    heart chamber in danger,

    New feelings, unnavigated terrain,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game

    do I roll the dice?
    do I play my cards?
    You got a suit of spades,
    and I wear my heart on my arm.

    and I don't know the rules
    am I playing or being played by you?
    oh the chaos that you bring,
    awoke something in me.

    (maybe just scream over the build up? ) <- not lyrics just to be clear

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    messy hearts work too much,
    My brain just can't keep up,
    more than blood flows through these veins*,(overlayer or drop the word game)

    New feelings, unnavigated terrain,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game* (overlayer or drop the word game)

    Creation in a chamber of chaos,
    and you're shrouded in mythos,
    uprooted, and apunch to the gut,
    please tell me do you feel the - same

    these feelings, newly lit aflame,
    You fixed my heart but broke my brain,
    How am I supposed to behave?
    you've got me playing a guessing game

  • There's something in this room
    Some spirits, watching as we tune
    They've always listened, but never spoke
    So we'll just sing and they'll lend us a note
    They love our music too
    They want to gift us with something new
    This is how they share their divinity
    Giving us a spark of creativity

    Time to turn off your thoughts
    The muses will never betray us
    Let's make something beautiful
    Creation in a chamber of chaos

    There's magic in the air
    A certain crackle under each snare
    Lightning vibrating on every string
    Pure fire in every note we sing
    The muses smile from above
    As we play, all they hear is love
    Then we write another song
    And the muses know their job is done

    Time to turn off your thoughts
    The muses will never betray us
    Let's make something beautiful
    Creation in a chamber of chaos

    Anything can happen when a muse gives you a spark
    They were there when you first learnt to play and
    gave you light when things seemed dark
    They help when you practiced and play for people to see
    They were there when you first soloed and sung your first harmony
    Every song you've ever heard has a muse lying at the core
    In every type of genre, every soundtrack, every score
    They've been around musicians since music had first begun
    As long as man has music, then the muses will have their fun

    Time to turn off your thoughts
    The muses will never betray us
    Let's make something beautiful
    Creation in a chamber of chaos
  • From the waters of the lifeless
    A great pyramid emerges
    Unfurling figures of celestial brilliance
    Stars glistening in sable skies

    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    The prism opens to set him free

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image

    Onyx bridges and emeralds shine,
    Walk the shore as new flowers bloom
    The darkness parts for children of Atum,
    Dazzling majesty of giants divine

    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    The prism opens to set me free

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image

    Under the sun, Osiris’s caress
    The lotus in bloom, our time has begun

    [Joycamp's juicy solo]

    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    The prism opens to set me free

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image

    I open my eyes to see
    A slice of Eden in the desert
    Out the mouth of the gods, we are born
    One breath and made in her image
  • Strolling at the edge of town
    She's back in front of me
    We were never together
    But she thought differently

    Don't hold on to nothing
    (on to nothing)
    Find the courage to get out of your head
    (get out of your head)
    You will find something if you stop looking
    for the things that aren't even there

    I left her at the station
    Just her mind's creation
    In a chamber of chaos
    Confusion is rising within

    Timeless memories incorporeal
    No existence can't appeal
    Timeless memories incorporeal
    Nowhere now not somehow

    Take it back
    Clear your mind
    Take it back
    Reassign

    Don't hold on to nothing
    (on to nothing)
    Find the courage to get out of your head
    (get out of your head)
    You will find something if you stop looking
    for the things that aren't even there
  • One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten

    The countdown
    To the madness
    Syncopating
    Lights are fading

    Creation
    In a chamber
    Of chaos
    Watching
    Waiting

    It’s just a numbers game
    Place your bets and get in the frame

    It’s just a numbers game
    Where I’m a possibility
    And you’re a possibility
    It’s just a numbers game
    There’s no responsibility
    To curb the instability

    Get your number
    Get your number

    Watch the future unfold
    Watch the world take form

    One and two
    The void is blue
    Three and four
    Watch it unfurl
    Five and six
    Oil and water mix
    Seven, eight
    Negotiate

    Nine…
    Ten…

    BANG

    It’s just a numbers game
    Where I’m a possibility
    And you’re a possibility
    It’s just a numbers game
    Where I’m the one
    And you’re the one
    And we’ll become a casualty

    It’s just a numbers game
    Where I’m the one
    And you’re the one
    And we’ll become a casualty

  • World wakes
    Beneath steel skies
    Lovers stir
    Cold hands on thighs
    In bedrooms
    Behind the shades
    Some flames burn bright
    Whilst others fade

    Recollections and mementos
    Heartache's a souvenir
    Images and echoes
    Apparitions that persevere


    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    Within four chambers of mayhem
    The ghosts are out and on the loose
    And I cannot escape them


    World turns
    The sky around the clouds
    Lovers stir
    Prisoners of doubt
    On sidewalks
    Out in the pouring rain
    I die a little inside
    Whenever I hear your name


    Recollections and mementos
    Heartache's a souvenir
    Images and echoes
    Apparitions that persevere


    Creation in a chamber of chaos
    Within four chambers of mayhem
    The ghosts are out and on the loose
    And I cannot escape them


    I'll be honest with myself
    I'm not being honest with myself
  • Pardon this confession
    But I must come clean today
    I ran for this position
    For a single thing to say

    I stand for this oration
    With gravitas and pathos
    To bring my own creation
    In a chamber of chaos

    A plan to save the nation
    I present to this congress
    A personal aspiration
    That will lead us to progress

    [Pre-Chorus]
    It’s a simple vision…

    [Chorus]
    Free hugs for everyone
    Let this country embrace us all
    Free hugs for everyone
    Cause we’re here for the long haul

    For this we would commission
    Thousands of public servants
    Their arms would feel like cushions
    They’d be bright and observant

    Unemployment and depression
    Will drop to unheard lows
    We’ll be pioneers of consolation
    We could leave all these shadows

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And it’s up to this session…

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Please don’t laugh at my obstination
    I know it’s naive
    But what do you plan to achieve ?

    I went through a daunting election
    To bring this to you
    You need it as much as I do

    It will never come to fruition
    Cause you live by the numbers
    Full of moderate ambitions
    Cradling you in your slumber

    Those No’s are an affliction
    But this parliament’s your hideout
    So, to stop your ruination
    I will hug all your brains out

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And we’ll have new elections

    [Chorus]
    Free hugs for everyone
    Let this country embrace you all
    Free hugs for everyone
    And you will hear the people's call
  • I’ve lost it all
    I’ve lost my heart

    Every step forward
    Takes me back two
    Spending a week
    Turning around in circles

    All that I see
    And all that I feel
    And all that I live
    And all that I think
    And all that I kill
    Even if I will
    There’ll always be more
    Just waiting

    The time that I keep
    For myself to shovel
    The coal that keeps me going
    Taken away and lost

    All that I see
    And all that I feel
    And all that I live
    And all that I think
    And all that I kill
    Even if I will
    There’ll always be more
    Just waiting…

    I’ve lost it all
    The things I thought I had
    I’ve lost my heart
    In this chamber of chaos
    I'm trying to swim
    But always drowning
    Filled above my head
    In this chamber with chaos

    The pain that keeps me awake
    At the times it shouldn’t
    Fills my days with stalling
    And my nights with regret

    I’ve lost it all
    The things I thought I had
    I’ve lost my heart
    In this chamber of chaos
    I'm trying to swim
    But always drowning
    Filled above my head
    Is this chamber with chaos

    I’ve lost it all
    The things I thought I had
    I’ve lost my heart
    In this chamber of chaos
    Drown it
    Hide it
    After all it’s nothing more
    Than a creation in a chamber of chaos
  • What am I feeling?
    Tell me
    What am I feeling?

    I sit in my shower and let the water fall
    My head feels heavy, I'm feeling small
    I draw a picture on the glass, a smiley face,
    this feeling is sure to pass, just like the days, this too will pass
    I see the fog rising up around me,
    the heat is burning my skin
    I get up and shut off the water, I can’t let it win

    The turmoil of a storm within,
    I grasp at straws to keep me afloat,
    It comes pouring out but there's no sound,
    My screams echo in my throat

    I stare at the ceiling as my mind is blank,
    I wonder what it is, that for this, I can thank,
    A calm and quiet sensation overcomes me,
    A feeling of letting go finds me,

    I reach my hand out and grasp for the air,
    I find myself to no longer care
    For I am not bound by the fear
    I can strive towards anything here

    What am I feeling,
    Tell me,
    What am I feeling
    My knowledge is expanding,
    I've come to an understanding
    Playing tricks on me like an alliteration
    Creation in chamber of chaos in concentration
    I have awoken once again
    But a thought lingers in my head, for how long?

    It’s dragging me down, knowing I will go down
    Maybe it’s all a visage, an oasis of my own making
    I break up a sweat as I wake from my bed
    Anger starts to take hold and I rage against all
    Words are pouring out that I do not mean
    For I’m afraid to be seen, by you

    Don’t look at me while I make a scene
    I don’t know what I want you to see
    I don’t have control over you, I cower
    I will calm down in the shower

    What am I feeling,
    Tell me,
    What am I feeling
  • Hold on, baby
    Hold on, baby
    Dig your fingers into my sides
    Hold on, sweetheart
    Hold on, darling
    We’ll outrun them one last time

    Ride
    We'll ride
    Far
    So far

    Close
    Your eyes
    Tonight
    Tonight

    Wait!

    As the dust settles
    Your words echo
    There’s stillness all around
    With my mind spinning
    I go back to the beginning
    Before our time ran out

    It’s a slow ride
    Back into the City
    It’s a nosedive
    From here to eternity
    A bloody fight
    To reclaim your broken body
    It’s a long ride
    Back into the city where we used to be alive

    It’s a slow sigh
    And it echoes through the valley
    It’s a long night
    Without your arms around me
    My battle cry
    Fades into my memory
    It’s a long ride
    Back into the city where we used to be alive

    Goodnight to
    The sun, sand and sky
    Goodnight to
    What you leave behind
    My lips are dry
    But I’ll still kiss you goodnight

    Goodnight to
    The sun, sand and sky
    Goodnight to
    What you leave behind
    My lips are dry
    But I’ll still kiss you goodnight
  • Verse 1:

    Where
    Am I
    Where is everyone
    I was flying, now I'm down on the ground
    Around me
    Only rustling trees
    No roads, no buildings, this can't be Paris

    And the pain, crawling
    The hunger, growing
    And the lack of warmth
    Maybe this path...

    Chorus 1:

    Have I already been through this clearing?
    Through the mountains, my calls are echoing
    No responses to the pleas for help I've sung
    But cold and pine-scented air filling my lungs

    Verse 2:

    It's been many nights now
    Flowers blooming already
    Whole season of sorrow
    To wake up safe and steady

    Know spots for shrooms and berry
    Near them, breathtaking scenery
    White peaks, almost inviting me
    To never leave...

    Chorus 2:

    It's by this all too familiar clearing
    And thanks to the mountains listening
    That I found the inspiration for this song
    I'm gonna sing it all spring long

    Solo

    Chorus/Bridge:

    But
    I've seen the milky way
    (Maybe I wanna stay)
    Breathed this untainted air
    (Maybe all this is fair)
    Are they sad, are they scared?
    (Maybe they just don't care)
    It is already May
    (They are glad you're away)
    When this is all over
    (This is never over)
    Who will I see in these rivers...?
  • In the dead of night, the danger comes
    Gasping for air, while the dread washes over
    Yellow eyes of death, pierce my wide-open eyes
    Death in the shadows looming over my head

    The hum of night the soundtrack,
    Moonlit path the dance floor,
    Prickling skin from the panic within,
    Traversing the house of the wolf

    Enveloped by the forest,
    That I can’t see for the trees
    Blinded by the constant fear,
    Each step feels like the last I’ll ever take

    Hot breath in my ear, I whimper in fear
    As the wolf closes in
    Amber and grey, no matter the way,
    Silence cuts across the screaming within

    In the dead of night, the danger comes
    Gasping for air, while the dread washes over
    Yellow eyes of death, pierce my wide-open eyes
    Death in the shadows, looming in my head
  • Am I trash or treasure
    Loved or discarded forever
    I have felt such isolation
    All my life


    Is this a pedestal
    Or more of a curtain call
    In swings and roundabouts
    Much too wild



    Nothing left
    Where should I be
    I must find
    a way

    I don't want the oceans to part
    But I have to bring back that spark
    The trees are falling to the ground
    Do they even make a sound

    Don't want to be lost in the dark
    But to be together in our hearts
    The time will come for a new start
    No longer on my own at last


    Am I lost or found
    Gone or safe and sound
    Must I dig deep down
    With bare hands

    Is this where I belong
    Or am I just strung along
    Did I make a connection
    Just one time

    Nothing left
    Where should I be
    I must find
    a way

    I don't want the oceans to part
    But I have to bring back that spark
    The trees are falling to the ground
    Do they even make a sound

    Don't want to be lost in the dark
    But to be together in our hearts
    The time will come for a new start
    No longer on my own at last

    Am I a diamond or just rough
    Sparkling life or tough
    Am I a diamond or just rough
    Sparkling life or tough

    Is this the last time
    To hear the bells chime
    The sun will never set
    On my song

    Nothing left
    Where should I be
    I must find
    a way

    I don't want the oceans to part
    But I have to bring back that spark
    The trees are falling to the ground
    Do they even make a sound

    Don't want to be lost in the dark
    But to be together in our hearts
    The time will come for a new start
    No longer on my own at last
  • (Verse 1)
    Endless mass of pink and grey
    Endless me all night and day
    Young and old, alive and dead
    It's all me, all in one head

    (Chorus)
    Alone In The Hivemind
    Alone In The Hivemind

    (Verse 2)
    Echo chamber worlds across
    For new words I'm at a loss
    For it's all me, nothing new
    Like will-o-wisps, through and through

    (Chorus)
    Alone In The Hivemind
    Alone In The Hivemind

    (Refrain)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)

    (Refrain)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)

    (Verse 3)
    Will I ever become free
    Free from the infinite me
    Or will I be stuck in time
    Alone within the hivemind

    (Chorus)
    Alone In The Hivemind
    Alone In The Hivemind

    (Refrain)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
    Alone In The Hivemind (alleen in de zwermgeest)
  • They sucked the marrow from the giants bones
    And spat forth flame
    The blood and grime it wouldn't wash off
    All they held became stained

    This eye has seen it all before

    Mother Evergreen
    Father Oak
    This is my offering
    My last approach
    No one to claim now
    What has been left
    Alone again
    In this wilderness

    Rain now
    Tears on dry lands
    Worry now
    At open wounds

    Time swings quickly, cutting
    Like a scythe

    Faithful heart
    And a fond farewell
    Give a man a cup
    And he will drown himself

    This eye has seen it all before

    Mother Evergreen
    Father Oak
    This is my offering
    My last approach
    No one to claim now
    What has been left
    Alone again
    In this wilderness

    Mother Evergreen

    This is my offering
    My last approach
    No one to claim now
    What has been left
    Alone again
    In this wilderness
  • Find me
    Abandoned
    No undergrowth
    Seek me
    Destroyed on
    The forest floor

    Sorrow
    Seeps like sap
    This grief untapped
    No foliage to protect
    The remains of
    The branches left

    Nature's forsaken me
    Left to decompose
    Between the wilting leaves
    And moss and mold

    Burrow
    My cursed seeds
    That won't sprout leaves
    The remains of
    This last species
    Ends with me

    If a tree falls in a forest
    And no one is around to hear it
    Does it make a sound?

    Like a dead standing tree
    Hollow at my end
    Cut off from living
    The life that grows feeds from me now

  • Into dark woods you walk tonight
    No map no compass
    No stars shine in the sky
    You trudge through blindly

    I've been in those woods before my friend
    And I’ll never go back in them again

    I've been in those woods before my friend
    And I’ll never go back in them again

    Even with adjusted eyes
    You still can't find a path
    The moon provides a faint light
    And canopy shadows dance

    But you falter further
    Deeper into the darkness
    With storm clouds rolling in
    Alone in the wilderness

    Send up a flare if you're lost out there
    You don't have to go alone
    I can't be your guide but I'll be by your side
    Into parts unknown

    On a sinking ship in a tempest
    Sea and sky combined
    No light house lamps lit
    No signs of shore to find

    Rogue waves rock the boat
    Don't go down with her
    You've got to stay afloat
    Ignore the luring siren’s call

    Send up a flare if you're lost out there
    You don't have to go alone
    I can't be your guide but I'll be by your side
    Into parts unknown

    Send up a flare if you're lost out there
    You don't have to go alone
    I can't be your guide but I'll be by your side
    Into parts unknown
  • The city is a ghost town
    I've seen nobody in weeks
    No voices from the outside
    No cars pass on the streets
    This Liminal space consumes me
    My existence less concrete
    Your presence is hardly noticed
    A fly on a screen

    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather

    This citys like the wilderness
    At least under the rain
    The gutters overflowing
    Streets becoming rivers as they drain
    Are the walls becoming in tighter
    I feel more crushed everyday
    I can't stand your voice anymore
    Jam wax in my ears till it goes away

    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather

    I've been breathing your air for 2 weeks straight
    And these apartment walls are closing in quick
    And there's an empty wilderness just outside the gates
    I'm gonna drown soon if I don't find a higher place

    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're together but we're alone
    In this rebar and concrete zone
    We're alone but we're together
    I can't shelter from your weather
    We're together but we're alone

  • I left the office for a week
    Nobody needs me anyway
    And made my way to the red creek
    The place where my mom used to stray

    No e-mail could find me there
    This secret I’ll keep forever
    For when I have questions to spare
    When I need some ties to sever
    There is no music in this air
    For once it was for the better

    No guilt of singing my own songs
    Around the campfire
    No fear of conversations
    That could have gone smoother
    It’s just me and this starry night
    Where light and dark are deep
    And now I can speak to myself
    Until I fall asleep

    In a place no one else can see
    Happy is the lonely ruler
    Nothing is expected of me
    I craved for this second nature

    No guilt of singing my own songs
    Around the campfire
    No fear of conversations
    That could have gone better
    It’s just me and this simple day

    I could be the perfect kind of crazy
    I could answer the riddles of my years
    Old regrets met all my future stories
    This last silence has uncovered my ears

    When I embraced this honest wind
    Flowing around my hair and skin
    I knew my senses hadn’t thinned
    They needed somewhere to break in

    Hangin’ around just like the drunk left in port
    Who abandoned his voyage before it could start
    But thank god, thank god
    That ship had sailed
    Yeah, thank god because
    We’ve already failed

    Resigned to the ice
    Just drifting for miles
    Drifting for miles

    Resigned to the ice
    We drifted for miles
    Drifted for miles

    It’s time to face it, a failed objective
    We’re stranded here now, our fears resurrected
    There’s no turning back
    We’re jettisoned cargo
    No, they’re not coming back
    Back tomorrow

    Resigned to the ice
    Just drifting for miles
    Drifting for miles

    Resigned to the ice
    We drifted for miles
    Drifted for miles

    Low on the horizon
    The light of spring is almost here
    Rising up, rising up
    I still see your breath in the air

  • Well I've got my shovel handy, what more do I need?
    Well I've got it handy
    Time to dig underneath my feet


    One might say there's two of us
    But I only spot one
    (dead bodies, dead bodies don't count)


    Gonna dig myself a grave
    Alone in the woods
    Gonna carve real deep, so no one finds the goods
    Cover and repeat (alone in the woods)
    Alone in the woods
    And should anybody else drop by
    I still won't need no alibi
    There's time still before the sunrise


    Well I've got my body ready, what more do I need?
    Well I've got it ready
    Time to bury, underneath my feet

    Don't this seem
    Like a great
    Final resting place?
    (The moss here calls your name)


    Gonna dig them a grave
    Alone in the woods
    Gonna bury them before me, and cover 'em real good
    Between the trees (alone in the woods)
    Alone in the woods
    And should anybody else drop by
    There's enough ground here for them to lie
    I'll work until the dawn arrives


    Well I'm still feeling lonely, the dead don't make for company
    Well I'm still lonely
    Time to shovel six feet deep (underneath my feet)


    Gonna dig us both a grave
    Alone in the woods (Alone in the woods)
    Two can keep a secret, if both of em are dead
    Alone in the woods
    The dead don't count as company (alone, alone)
    I've never had worse company
    Alone in the woods


    Gonna dig myself a grave
    Gonna dig them a grave
    Gonna dig us both a grave
    (Alone in the woods)
    Gonna carve real deep,
    Gonna bury them before me
    Two can keep a secret if both of em are dead

  • There’s a sun bleeding through the clouds
    Leading me on
    Lighting up the marigolds
    Honeyed halcyon
    Gotta take a little breath
    Then run until there’s nothing left

    Gonna find a way through the wilderness
    Gonna find a way to the other side
    Gonna make a habit of happiness
    Gonna make this whole world mine

    Got no time for wonderin’
    Gonna make the sky my own
    It’s takin’ all I’ve got to give
    And everything I’ve known

    A thunderstorm is blowin’ in
    Pushing me back
    Beating down the daffodils
    Tracing cracks
    Gotta take a little breath
    Then run until there’s nothing left

    Gonna find a way through the wilderness

  • Guess I gotta get goin', goin' down
    To the road not taken
    Simmerin' stew is slowin' down, now
    We're nearly done bakin'
    But the melt-a-man heat ain't good for the meat, no
    Trippin' over my feet into the yonder
    A Walden Ponder

    Satellites send trails of shooting stars
    As they fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    I used to hate dirt

    Wonder if the Super Bowl still shows
    Primetime is a-watchin' that grass grow
    Crickets 'n me got a book to read
    And they think it's boring
    I'm a rainy day dude, it's true
    I got pots out for the bleedin' blue
    Takin' up thin shelter from the shadows
    Still could drive men mad

    Oh, what if they put the puzzle back together?
    Oh, what if our population comes around?
    My god, what if I'm not a factor in the future?
    Will I matter at all, in a small way?
    Does a pebble in creek ever get a say?

    Satellites or trails of shooting stars
    As they fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    I used to hate dirt

    Guess I gotta get rounded, pounded down
    To the river's own shapin'
    Guess I gotta make peace in drownin' deep out here where the coast is clear

    Satellites send trails of shooting stars
    As they fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    Till you're diggin' in the dirt

    Satellites or trails of shooting stars
    They fall to Earth, I see but God's own fireworks
    Oh woe to be the man from Mars
    But the cutaway always hurts
    It's why they call it work
  • Follow down
    The unbeaten road
    Lookin’ for answers
    Far from home

    Wanderin’ lost
    I hear the sound
    Of the wolves calling
    Chasin’ me down

    There’s no escape
    When nothing’s ever going your way
    Broken and bound
    By everything you left in that blacktop town
    Gonna rise again
    Before the devil himself closes in
    I've got miles to mend

    Run rabbit run
    Life is loaded like a gun
    Run rabbit run
    Shoot to kill the worry, son

    Run rabbit run
    Life is loaded like a gun
    Run rabbit run
    Shoot to kill the worry, son

    No holdin’ back
    When the nightfall comes
    The shadows crawl
    Still I run

    No way out
    Trees are closin’ in
    Feel the teeth
    No one’s free from sin

    There’s no escape
    When nothing’s ever going your way
    Broken and bound
    By everything you left in that blacktop town
    Gonna rise again
    Before the devil himself closes in

  • Don't you call my name
    What's done, now is what you’ve done
    There's no turning back
    Once the bullet has left the gun
    I could have made a promise
    But it's one, that we'd both regret
    Best to bury me now
    Instead of laying me to rest

    CHORUS
    I wasn’t born to this world
    I had to make it my own
    I carved out every path
    Between the blood and the bone
    And I carry all these scars
    One for each and every time
    I trusted someone enough

    Let your
    heart too close
    and be next
    to mine

    VERSE
    My love is dangerous
    I’m a traitor to everyone
    Alone in the wilderness
    Where I can't even trust myself
    If I could live forever
    We could always be as one
    But my past is dragging
    Me 6 feet underground

    CHORUS
    There's no more returning
    To any home that I had
    Marked twice and dead man walking
    When I crossed and I ran
    Was it days or weeks ago?
    In the wilderness alone
    I could have been a hero
    Let your
    heart too close
    and be next
    to mine

    BRIDGE 02:15
    Foot falls in the distance
    No matter what side I’m on
    Neither with good reason
    to pity what we'll stumble on
    Caught between our sides
    Running for my life....

    CHORUS
    You took your knife and used it
    It’s a choice of ride or die
    I can't trust this confusion
    Not my ears or my eyes
    Not supposed to be over
    Still running for my life
    Lost in the fog of lies

    Let your
    heart too close
    and be next
    to mine
  • I wake up to a new dawn and I'm not altogether pleased
    The world I find myself in is different to how it seemed
    Everyone was telling me how I was meant to live
    What I had to do to grow, what I should be willing to give
    If I were but a caterpillar, crawling by and by
    Would you cast me out if I refused to become a butterfly?
    I'm no long lost son, I'm no long forgotten daughter
    I'm stuck as I am, lost in a valley near water

    I have no tale worth telling
    Nor have I a tail to show
    No shellder shall feast on me
    To evolve me into a slowbro

    You call me an outcast
    You treat me like I'm a joke
    I've made my home in solitude
    Forever a Slowpoke

    But what's so wrong about loving who you are?
    What you call evolution, I call straight up bizarre
    I'm glad I never grew a tail, I choose to stay as me
    You think that I won't grow up, but I'm the one who's free

    And so I left my old life, left the snickers and the japes
    I sought out the wilderness with the hillsides and the lakes
    Alone is where I'm happy and where I feel at peace
    No longer will I have to feel the harsh choke of your leash

    I have no tale worth telling
    So you treat me like I'm a joke
    No shellder shall feast on me
    Forever a Slowpoke

    I have no tale worth telling
    Nor have I a tail to show
    No shellder shall feast on me
    To evolve me into a slowbro
    You call me an outcast
    You treat me like I'm a joke
    I've made my home in solitude
    Forever a Slowpoke
  • Ranked third in all of kanto
    But always second best
    The childhood overachiver
    Never had time to rest
    Oh it's so easy to retire
    And quit while your ahead
    But you know what they say about ghosts
    Around a gengar you know not to rest

    And old men
    Will always grow soft
    And in this world
    You've gotta look at the top
    And old men
    Will always grow soft
    And in this world
    You've gotta look at the top

    But our warm childhood nostalgia
    Has been replaced with more adult concerns
    Cause now that I'm so much older
    I know how much victory is worth
    So quit your research and come face me
    We'll battle it out one last time
    Let's settle all our unfinished business
    before the incoming end of our lives

    And old men
    Will always grow soft
    And in this world
    You've gotta look at the top
    And old men
    Will always grow soft
    And in this world
    You've gotta look at the top
  • She knocks me out like Mewtwo
    And she’s so cute, like Butterfree
    And when she smiles my face just burns like Charizard

    She’s hotter than Magmortar
    She makes me fly like Pigeott
    And when she’s gone I feel like Gangar killed the sun


    Rarest of them all
    Gotta put her in my pokeball


    She has the eyes of Vaporeon
    Can dance like Oricorio
    And even Malamar could never be this smart

    She’s pretty like Milotic
    Oh wait, I’m wrong, she’s Beautifly
    And when she sings I swear she could be Jigglypuff


    Rarest of them all
    (She’s the rarest of them all)
    Gotta put her in my poke ball
    Rarest of them all
    (She’s the rarest of them all)
    Gotta put her in my poke ball

    We kiss on the beach
    Bare feet in the sand
    And we walk to my place
    Her hand in my hand

    But she sees the magazines
    And the DVDs too
    And she says
    “I will never go to the prom with you!”


    Rarest of them all
    Rarest of them all
    (What did I do wrong?)
    Rarest of them all
    (Maybe I’m just slow. Like Slowpoke)


    She runs away like Eevee,
    And now I feel like Trubbish
    I’ll sleep it off like Snorlax and face the world again


    No, I mean, I thought he was normal, and everything was so going well, and we actually went to his place to, um, you know. And then I saw. In his bedroom, like, all over the place. Fucking Pokemon.
  • Let's go!

    Look into my eyes
    This whole world
    Is a stage
    In my view

    Hear my voice rise
    Don't be disturbed
    It's my gift
    For you

    Time to send to sleep
    Someone I've never met

    Don't you faint just yet

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    With my pocket friends
    I never walk alone

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    Here so long
    Feels like home

    Not close to being done
    Slap you back like
    A wound spring
    Come undone

    I don't need a reason
    The journey is my goal
    Every day begins
    A fighting season

    I am at the apex
    This is the song's climax

    Enjoy the show

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    With my pocket friends
    I never walk alone

    I've got time to kill
    In this world unknown

    Here so long
    Feels like home

    Feels like home
  • I was ready to settle down
    she was always finding cause
    counter-protest in Berlin
    every other month we'd hit pause

    catching waves not meant for me
    I preferred security.
    "I want you to love me,
    but not hold me, necessarily."

    she never did anything
    anything she didn't want to
    I could never capture her
    my piscine pikachu

    she just couldn't be held down
    was like balloons were on her back
    ours was a static electricity
    fixed in state was all she had

    she wrote me letters from afar
    I devoured the birdsong
    "butterflies kept in a jar
    don't flap their wings for long"

    she never did anything
    anything she didn't want to
    I could never capture her
    my postal pikachu

    but despite it all
    never wanted something more
    I sold myself
    to buy the floor
    and built the house
    staked up the walls
    to give her something
    a place to call

    she never did anything
    anything she didn't want to
    I didn't want to capture
    my perfect pikachu

  • I knew the day would come when we'd leave this town,
    But I didn't know how much I'd miss seeing you around,
    You set off to become Kanto's number 1,
    You said I was your rival, but I was playing for fun.

    And when I beat you,
    In our first battle,
    I could see the envy in your eyes,

    And when you got to,
    Pewter City,
    Brock really cut you down to size,

    I don't know how to tell her,
    She doesn't need to try so hard,
    I'd rather fight along beside her,
    Than leave her party bruised and scarred.

    You made it through Mt. Moon,
    Don't use that Moon Stone too soon,
    Winning badges one by one,
    You evolved your Charmeleon.

    And when I saw you,
    On the SS Anne,
    So glad we got to share that cruise,

    pride got you,
    Instead of talking,
    You start a battle that you would lose,

    I don't know how to tell her,
    She doesn't need to try so hard,
    I'd rather fight along beside her,
    Than KO her Charizard.

    So the story goes,
    We made it past Victory Road,
    And look what you've become,
    You're Kanto Region's Champion.

    Your team puts up quite the fight,
    My party's strong cause I trained them right,
    I use Surf on your Charizard,
    But beating you still breaks my heart,

    I don't know how to tell her,
    How proud I am that she got so far,
    I'm going to fight along beside her,
    Two champions, we'll both be stars.
    We'll both be stars.
  • -- Lyrics by omnibushdo (rbj) and spireal --

    A twisted melody
    Eyelids growing heavier
    Hear the Perish Song
    A hymn to tie our souls together

    Evenfall
    Bask in it, there is no escape
    Curtain call
    I can help you bow for the tape

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today


    It's too late to show your might
    We steer toward the same fate
    And now I lay my nasty plot
    The shadows lie in wait

    In lack of light I persevere
    The dark is where I thrive
    My burning gaze will not be broken
    Long as the prey’s alive

    Our turn starts soon...

    I choose you

    Feel my spectral hand on your shoulder

    Meet your doom

    Vision black, soon it's all over

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today

    Destinies bond with a few notes
    Only us ever heard
    My death will prevail crystal clear
    Your existence is blurred


    In lack of soul I feel alive
    The end is where I last
    My burning gaze will not be broken
    Until I wipe your past

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today

    For any soul who hears the song
    Is set to pass away
    With glee I volunteer my life
    To cut yours short today
    Our turn is up !

  • The night the Absol came, I knew my dreams were crushed
    They say despair soon follows their tracks and their minds
    Tomorrow, the village is gonna be in a rush,
    Fearing whatever these monsters planned for our kind.

    It just had to be me, the one who couldn’t withstand,
    Because all the border’s houses were closed except mine
    I waited for my time to travel across the land;
    Looks like someone just drew the end of the line.

    And it stopped just before me...
    Why did it have to stop just before me ?

    The others would be safe in their giant cities
    They already had badges, friends and rivals
    They would keep squabbling for their pocket money
    While I’ll struggle even more for my survival.

    I stared at the Absol with the emptiest eyes,
    Hoping for a lull in this incoming storm.
    But I knew it could only witness my demise,
    A sad rebel against the strongest of norms

    I just hoped the world was ending...
    Could this whole damn world be ending ?

    The day the Absol left, the clock started to tick :
    It’s been days since I’ve warned all of the town.
    Couldn’t stand all these looks, I wanted to be quick
    To tell neighbours what was about to go down.

    Were the winds rising ? Did a beast burst with rage ?
    So many traitors and saviours to figure out
    As my heart tried to jump out of my ribcage,
    I failed to envision a perfect turnabout.

    Somehow, I bet on a few things...
    Maybe I could save a couple things ?

    Or maybe my plans would not be needed;
    Didn’t want to dread ripples crashing on the pier.
    Maybe, for once, calls should stay unheeded;
    Harbingers can't see through Totodile tears.

    I shouted “Hey dumb wolf ! Give us your best shot !
    We’ll laugh about it, if we don’t, we’ll rebuild.
    In both cases, don’t forget you’re getting caught;
    You want me disarmed, but I’ll show you I’m thrilled !”

    I hoped this Absol heard me...
    Maybe he shouldn’t have heard me...

    The day the Absol foresaw, gunshots were heard :
    An invasion started minutes after midnight.
    We were gathered in the plaza without a word
    Until they knew we could not start a fight.

    As the troops left with a red trail of flames,
    I had a thought about the omens and their cries.
    I wished so bad for Pokemons to take the blame,
    But those soldiers just had this drive in their eyes

    Absols can't twist a brain that way...
    It's our thing to twist a brain that way...

    And the news started to make sense once more
    Because I finally asked for the clues I had.
    Didn't need a messenger at my door,
    Yet I couldn't see our fate turning bad.

    Absol, your turn to flee
    Too late to forgive me
    You were the emissary
    I just couldn't be.
    Absol, your turn to flee
    Too late to forgive me
    You were the emissary
    I just couldn't be.
  • The sky is getting awfully bright
    Shouldn't it be dark at night?
    A star above has been growing larger
    Some say it brings us hope, I think it brings disaster

    So if this will be the end of me
    The death of my entire family
    The end of a hundred thousand unique species
    I only wish to have made my peace

    I hope that you remember me

    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Death comes for both old and young
    All will lie dead beneath the sun
    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Forever lost to eternity
    I hope that you remember me

    But life... uh... finds a way
    A new world will awake one day
    They'll find under earth and sea
    Maybe you'll remember me

    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Death comes for both old and young
    All will lie dead beneath the sun
    The comet is knocking at our doors
    To bring the end to the dinosaurs
    Forever lost to eternity
    I hope that you remember me
  • Verse 1
    When I grow up, I'm gonna show everyone I'm the greatest nature lover of them all
    And that I respect all living creatures, soft or dangerous, big or small
    I want to lay down in the marsh and soak the beauty of it in, yea
    My integrity growing like an old oak tree, robust and strong

    Prechorus
    Love the world as you love yourself then you can care for all things

    Chorus
    I'm gonna make these birds my slaves
    I'm gonna make these bugs my slaves
    Though my love for them is fervent
    They'll still be my indentured servants
    I'm gonna make me these plants my slaves
    and make them work for days and days
    Until they pass out and mumble their name
    They're not going to the hospital, okay!?

    Verse 2
    People misunderstand
    My goal, my motives here
    My mom sends checks each month
    Then says I'm psychotic
    She should mind her business
    I bring fauna to the world
    Dog fights are much much worse
    Who says I'm quixotic?

    Chorus
    I'm gonna make these birds my slaves
    I'm gonna make these bugs my slaves
    Though my love for them is fervent
    They'll still be my indentured servants
    I'm gonna make me these fish my slaves
    Women and youngsters feel my rage
    Until they pass out and mumble their name
    They're not going to the hospital, okay!? OKAY!?
  • You can't read my tiny black eyes
    Under an old rag I hide
    Some people think I'm creepy as f*ck
    All I want is just to be loved

    You're unsure what I really am
    Tentacles peek from under the rag
    My vapors waft out when it's cut
    At night I must sew the rips shut

    What's under the costume, what do you suspect
    I get sad when you hit me, it breaks my whole neck
    My crayon-drawn face, droops, my head just falls down
    Horrific ghost creature with the face of a clown

    You think I appear as a freak, don't you
    A perverted reflection, of Pikachu
    Depraved revenant, a golem inside
    If you've seen my true form, you probably died

    You probably
    You probably

    Died

    My real appearance isn't safe to see -
    Do you want to come and play with me?
    Don't try and peek, I'll get upset
    Inflicting revenge on who broke my neck
    I just want to be just like you
    Hell-born phantasm, and want to look cute
    Murderous jealousy of Pikachu
    Be my bestie - I, Mimikyu
  • We were promised glory,
    Chasing star-filled dreams
    But when I first released you,
    I discovered the hard truth
    We do this for the Pokémon,
    Such wonder, big and small
    You are my life now, Cyndaquil
    Together we will do it all

    Eight ninety eight to master,
    Missing no-one to choose

    Chorus:
    Faced the floods and raging flames,
    The dragons’ roars and psychic rays,
    Our bond cannot be broken,
    As one we make it through

    Trudged through the forests for days and days,
    Bitter blizzards, ash and caves,
    Through rain, tall grass and windswept deserts,
    And surfed to paradise, so far away
    In gyms we stood our ground,
    Fought for recognition
    We learned our lessons, grew our power
    Achieved our evolution

    The League, the fame, it beckons,
    One atop the dais

    Chorus:
    Faced the floods and raging flames,
    The dragons’ roar and psychic rays,
    Our bond cannot be broken,
    As one we make it through


    Bridge:
    No way I would have made it here,
    Without you there, my friend
    In the darkest moments, you shone through
    Cyndi, you led the way…

    [Solo]

    Chorus:
    Faced the floods and raging flames,
    The dragons’ roar and psychic rays,
    Our bond cannot be broken,
    As one we make it through
  • You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be

    Caffeine, midnight
    The moonlight in the darkness
    Crimson eyes, rings that glow
    Will love at night change all we know?

    Or daytime might
    Bring lilac into the light
    Purple eyes
    Gems and psychic fight
    Will loyalty in the morning change what becomes?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Umbreon or Espeon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Spring, green and sunshine
    Do you long for endless growing, branching out
    Storms of leaves, flower perfume
    Will thriving flora make you bloom?

    Or let in chill, frost at its work
    Crisp winter air, crystal icicles
    Snowflakes descend from light blue skies
    Seas of white with turquoise ice
    Will snowing plains define your reprise?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Leafeon or Glaceon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Fire in its essence
    Sparking embers
    Scorching waves
    Orange blaze
    A heat that sends a message
    Will compressed fire light your flame?

    Or sparks may fly
    Electric coursing through the sky
    Lightning strikes where it's right
    10,000 volts exchanged
    Will contained charge conduce your change?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Flareon or Jolteon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Blue pink and white, be undefined
    Softly glowing like fairy lights,
    Sparkling, dazzling gleam
    Will affection reveal your undreamt dreams?

    Or do you long for the pitter patter of rain coursing through your veins?
    Heavy waterfall, rapid river flow
    Melt into the H2O
    Will condensed vapor reveal your soul?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    Let your heart's desires run freely (Sylveon, Vaporeon or Eevee?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Does any of it call your name?
    Do you long for change or to stay the same?

    You have the power of unending possibilities
    The choice to be the perfect form you're meant to be
    I would never ask you to change for me (Who do you want to be?)
    Go on and be
    Go on and be Eevee~

    Umbreon or Espeon or Leafeon,
    Glaceon or Flareon or Jolteon,
    Sylveon, Vaporeon or Eevee

  • Quiet and peaceful
    A life in lush greens
    Pleasant and comfortable
    All was well it would seem

    Whispering waterfalls
    The softest of blue
    Hopes or dreams
    Are alive for you

    Fields of flowers
    Each one in full bloom
    Every colour
    Has its own perfume


    So happy to be here
    Hand in hand with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you


    But there was no warning
    For what would come
    Moments fleeting
    We would see our last sun


    Still happy to be here
    Hand in hand with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you

    Still happy to be here
    Side by side with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you


    And then there was a flash
    A rumble then a crash
    The sky turned black
    a fireball became ash

    Dust dropped like rain
    Darkness then came
    It was never the same
    Never again


    Finally happy to be here
    Endlessly with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you

    So happy to be here
    Heart to heart with you
    I'd choose every time
    to spend this day with you

    if it would be my last
    if it would be my last day
    spend it with you
  • Verse 1
    I guess I just got lost
    In the passage of time
    Opening up the freezer
    I'm reminded I'm not fine

    I guess a lot has changed
    But I haven't as much
    Picture frames the only things that show me up

    I guess thing aren't the same
    I've heard more than enough
    No more aching growing pains~

    Chorus
    Oh, I'm~
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
    Cause I'm~
    still hoping the world'll make sense to me
    Are we so cold and bitter, devoid of simple joy?
    That the things that once were precious aren't so anymore
    I'm-
    still buying dinosaur nuggets

    Verse 2
    It's in the little things
    Pop-tarts and lucky charms
    Not the most adult of choices, but I can't give them up

    Hoarding my old toys
    My precious Barbie dolls
    There's nothing now that gives me joy
    The same way that it was

    Hoarding my old joys
    Nintendo 64
    I'm done with things not being like they were before
    Things ain't like they were before


    Chorus
    Oh, I'm~
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
    Cause I'm~
    still hoping the world'll make sense to me
    Are we so cold and bitter, devoid of simple joy?
    That the things that once were precious aren't so anymore
    I'm-
    still buying dinosaur nuggets

    Bridge
    It's no cause for concern
    I'm not quite peter pan
    Simply overwhelmed by nostalgia
    A want to go back way back then
    It's just a simple shape, not bland in anyway
    Comforting dinosaurs to eat away the pain
    I haven't changed

    Chorus
    Oh, I'm~
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
    Cause I'm~
    still hoping the world'll make sense to me
    Are we so cold and bitter, devoid of simple joy?
    That the things that once were precious aren't so anymore
    I'm-
    still buying dinosaur nuggets
  • When I was a kid I used to play dinosaur
    I would stomp in the mud and thrash my little arms
    Until I read one book that put it in perspective
    That would give my reptile-loving life direction
    Fact! There's money to be made
    Fact! Treasures in heaven
    Fact! My bones aren't replicas
    Grown in nine months
    Fact! What were they digging for
    Fact! Out in mormon country?
    Fact! What are you digging for?
    The same thing as me

    I'm not dumb, I'm not dumb
    I want recognition, I want the distinction
    I do care, I do care
    I want recognition for being an expert on extinction

    I'm not smarter than you I've just done my research
    Why do you think I wear such a clever t-shirt?
    If we can't agree dreams of dinosaurs lead to sin
    can we just agree history books detail fiction?
    Fact! Leviathans explained
    Fact! Mermaids and manatees
    Fact! Fake skeletons and
    crocodile teeth
    Fact! Explicit and implied
    Fact! In at least one verse
    Fact! What are you digging for?
    Certainly something perverse

    I'm not dumb, I'm not dumb
    I want recognition, I want the distinction
    I do care, I do care
    I want recognition for being an expert on extinction

    Put yourself in my shoes
    Do my words cause harm?
    We're on our way out the door
    Kumbaya, arm in arm
    The apocalypse on its way
    In the end, what can you do?
    Real or staged they're gone
    As am I, as are you

    I'm not dumb, I'm not dumb
    I want recognition, I want the distinction
    I do care, I do care
    I want recognition for being an expert on extinction

    I do care, I do care
    I want recognition for being an expert on extinction
  • From the skies
    Falls the sun

    Heavens fury
    Curse the winds
    Time inhales and waits
    Waits to breathe

    Cold blooded awe
    Ride the fires
    Turn to stone and wait
    Wait to see the light again

    Down from the skies
    Falls the sun
    From the skies

    What goes around
    Comes around
    Leaves nothing but dust
    And time undone

    (Don't stare into the sun)

    What was above
    Comes crashing down
    With a roar
    Of molten seas to drown

    Down from the skies
    Fell the sun
    From the skies
    Fell the sun

    From the skies
    Falls the sun
  • The Origin of Birds

    The memory is stubborn
    Familiar motions repeat
    Like the chicken in the egg
    Still grows claws and teeth

    Oh the muscle memory
    And the origin of birds
    I take flight every evening
    Until the dawn does emerge

    Gerhard scribbled furiously
    His paper almost torn by the pen
    His tired eyes seeing only beak
    Claw tooth and wing
    The image was clear now
    The science was all wrong
    All fossil evidence mislead us
    You could see feathers on the thigh of a baby dove

    The truth was inescapable
    All the evidence did persist
    There'd be no great revelation
    No deeply buried missing link

    And one day we'll find
    The entirety of our lifes
    Burnt down to ashes
    And cast into the wind

    Gerhard stood anxiously
    Outside the publishers door
    In his hand the manuscript
    Sweat stained the decades work
    He knocked twice and time began to pause
    Every second felt an hour
    Every two a day
    But eventually the door swung open and he was beckoned in
    They looked over his notes searching for any obvious mistakes
    Looking at him with disdain an outsider intruding on a sacred place
    But gerhards work was impeccable
    And his evidence complete
    There could be no doubt about his hypothesis
    Even with the conclusions it reached
    The origin of birds was not
    With the great predators of old
    But instead they where sisters
    At least that's what gerhard told
  • Never mind what those fossils are teaching you in school
    I'll tell you the best way to learn
    It's paleontology 101
    Go back in time and get your groove back on
    Put on a show for those future exhibits
    And pay no mind to the temporal limits

    Herbivores and carnivores
    Together in the pit
    The theropods are break dancing
    Allosaurus are doing the splits
    The dilplodocus is headbanging
    Out there in the swamp
    It's Jurassic fantastic
    If you stomp,
    If you stomp

    Stomp until you can't no more
    In the land of time before
    For those about to rock'n'rawr
    We salute you

    Every velociraptor in the house say [Insert Conparkysaurus noises]
    Every stegosaurus in the house say [Insert Conparkysaurus noises]
    Every pterodactyl in the house roar
    Let's roar, lets roar, lets roar
    Lets roll, lets roll, lets roll
    Until a rock says we can't roll no more, roll no more

    [solo]

    Herbivores and carnivores

  • You're laying out in front of me
    I come rising up, in ecstasy
    And ooh, how i love to see you scream
    It's extreme, but it's my dream, so please -
    You are my Tokyo, and i will be your Godzilla

    When I come you seem so terrified
    My words are lingering with fire
    When we're together, it's so loud
    Fever exploding, mushroom clouds 


    Obsessed by passionate desire
    Electrified, tied in high tension wire
    And how my heart, it wants you so
    Hardcore blooded, craving Tokyo

    You are my Tokyo, and I will be your god
    I'll set your world aglow
    For i'll always be your Godzilla

    I find you when I’m feeling brash
    Taking pleasure in our blinding flash
    Don't refuse me
    Don't say I’m too much
    Tokyo, you'll always be my crush
  • This
    Should never have been
    A freak event
    None could foresee
    Now the waves (oh the waves)
    Depart the sea (depart the sea)
    So it begins

    Thrown
    Up and away
    Tiny rocks
    Almost aflame
    Now the heat (oh the heat)
    Starts its reign (rains and rains)
    As wildfires rage

    And it all obscures the sun (Chills the Earth)

    Forests
    That once stood tall
    Now crumble
    Crying as they fall
    And the land (oh the land)
    Slips and slides (slips and slides)
    It can’t withstand

    How it all obscures the sun (Chills the Earth)
    And how

    The whole world was torn apart
    Now the wound’s a massive scar
    A planetary-sized gun shot
    This is your final call (roar)

    Light
    Turns to dark
    As hearts
    Beat their last
    Now the Earth (oh the Earth)
    As it had been (what could have been?)
    Is no more

    How it all obscured the sun
    How it all chilled the Earth
    How it clipped all of their wings
    And it ground their bones to dirt
    Will they be remembered?

    The whole world was torn apart
    Now the wound’s a massive scar
    A planetary-sized gun shot
    This is your final call (roar)

    Larger than Everest
    More violent than bombs
    Hotter than Hades
    Here I come

    The whole world was torn apart
    Now the wound’s a massive scar
    A planetary-sized gun shot
    This is your final call (roar)

  • Once there was the littlest tyrannosaur
    A dreamer, a schemer, a wisher, too
    The constellations they called to him
    And this dancer he answered their light

    Fly, fly, fly away
    Reach and find your own way
    Fly, fly, fly so high
    Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky

    Every other being, scaled and feathered
    Would gather to chatter about their friend
    Our T-rex, nonplussed, would only ignore them
    And stare at the arc of the darkness above

    He gathered bone and ore and rock and tar
    Built a vessel to nestle him in heaven
    Waved goodbye as a crowd looked on in awe
    Our dinosaur stepped aboard for his journey

    Fly, fly, fly away
    Reach and find your own way
    Fly, fly, fly so high
    Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky

    As he sped through the heated atmosphere
    His jaw dropped in awe at the sight
    Of an asteroid soaring fearsome past
    To annihilate the fate of all below

    Tiny arms had grabbed for something more
    Now floating far amid the stars
    The loneliest little tyrannosaur
    The last of a past lost to fate

    Never let your dreams be dreams
    Never stand too long in just one place
    You too can be a dinonaut
    Hurtling along through outerspace

    Fly, fly, fly away
    Reach and find your own way
    Fly, fly, fly so high
    Dinonaut you’ll burn the sky
  • I'm the baddest theropod from this side of the cretaceous
    All that see me run and hide
    All my equals meet me and suddenly become sequacious
    They'll follow me if they want to survive

    I'll rip out your throat
    I'll feast on your spleen
    I'll steal you last breath
    And I'll strip your bones clean

    But I wish I didn't live this way
    I hunt and kill to eat, I wish that I had a say
    I hated all of the death, since it began
    I just want vegetables, I wish I could go vegan

    Don't believe all that I said, it was just a prank bro
    I live for the chaos
    The sharpest teeth and claws are on my bank roll
    Roaming round the forest

    We'll rip out your throat
    We'll feast on your spleen
    We'll steal you last breath
    And we'll strip your bones clean

    But we wish we didn't live this way
    We hunt and kill to eat, we wish that we had a say
    We hated all of the death, since it began
    We just want vegetables, we wish we could go vegan

    As I hunt and kill my prey,
    I wish it was a veggie burger with guacamole
    And when I taste their blood
    I wish it was a nice crisp salad

    Why do I have to live this way
    I hunt and kill to eat, but don't I deserve a say
    I hated all of the death, since it began
    I'm just going to eat vegetables, that's it, I'm going vegan

    Hit the Yucatan Like Iron Mike
    Still feeling the after shocks
    Still digging out from under those rocks
    Seems like they went extinct
    But if you just stop and think
    Everywhere you see the same
    Old fossils control the game
    if you just stop and think
    Will they ever go extinct?

    Chorus
    Dinosaur bones foreign soil
    feast and famine, peace, turmoil
    to the victors go the spoils
    How much war is just gold and oil?

    Scientists draw red lines
    Government pocket's lined
    CEOs don't mind the fines
    Average Joe preoccupied
    Seems like we'll go extinct
    But if you just stop and think
    It ain't a mystery who or why they done it
    A bunch of cold blooded old fossils still run it
    if you just stop and think
    Will they ever go extinct?

  • (Bro, you have to calm down about dinosaurs. This is an intervention. They've been dead for like, what, millions of years? Can't you just go out or play some Nintendo with us?)
    Hell no!


    Many are obsessed with dinosaurs in preschool
    Some don't grow out of it, I'm one of those fools
    My favourite species are anywhere they fit
    Glasses, pillows, tote bags and ties, you name it
    (Hey, have I ever show you my diplodocus teapot, by the way?)

    On every forum I'm a woman on a mission
    Wrote thousands of posts just to share my passion
    Some tried to shut me down, but I'm always ready
    Just spent my whole night praising Jurassic Park 3

    (Come on, the spinosaurus was pretty badass! And also, it's arguably the best version of Dr Grant...
    Wow, ok, I'm getting a little carried away, but you know you can...)


    Ask me about dinosaurs, you can't put me on the spot
    They're the best creatures this Earth have brought
    If only they had the fortune to carry on
    They were the kings of a time long gone


    I'm that dino nerd, blowing the minds I gather
    When they hear my trivia, I see this childlike wonder
    You can call me an armchair archeologist,
    But there isn't one piece of research I have missed
    (They just found a massive fossil under a café in Austria!)

    The carnotaurus is the top tier in my heart
    It was fast, it had horns and its neck's a work of art
    They say he could make the biggest eat the ground
    T-rexes wished they had its power pound-by-pound


    (I mean, T-rexes are everybody's favourite, but they're not my favourite. You know, like, they were super limited by their size?
    Honestly, like, they had these itty-bitty-bitty arms, and they had these massive heads and massive bodies, and, like, they couldn't outrun most of the little dinosaurs.
    And like, the carnotaurus weren't very much better because their arms were just as small, but now if you look at the velociraptor, that's something different.
    They were small, and super fast, and uh, sharp teeth, but did you know they had feathers?
    Also, the pterodactyl actually had fur instead of feathers, so they were kind of like furry and stuff, but like, pterydactyls were amazing.
    Do you remember Petrie from The Land Before Time? Now that is a movie that's worth watching, honestly...)


    So you can ask me about dinosaurs
    You can ask me about dinosaurs


    Sorry if I took your time, you must be busy
    And you might think my obsession is unhealthy
    But it's a human thing, so what about you?
    What makes you excited? Is it dinosaurs too?

  • The beating of the forest,
    Rhythm of our lives,
    Fireflies dazzled my eyes,
    As I danced with you tonight


    Roar, unbridled passion
    As I gaze into your eyes


    They called us Salsasaurus,
    Took my claws and hung on for dear life,
    Snouts together, trampled heather
    The dance of love, all right


    The beating of the forest,
    Rhythm of our lives,
    Fireflies dazzled my eyes,
    As I danced with you tonight


    Fire rages, in and out
    Acrid fumes, ash all about
    In meteor euphoria
    We begin to suffocate


    Our eyes meet one last time,
    To find our burning flame
    The cosmos might have sent our end,
    But I love you all the same


    A million moments in my mind,
    Flash like sunlight in my eyes
    Rhythm of enchanted life,
    The soundtrack of demise


    My heartbeat
    It’s fading
    Our lives
    Ebbing away
    The rhythm
    It’s dying
    Our happy lives
    Gone

    Awaiting a spark to start the flames
    Like a flower in march
    Engorged buds bulging veins

    They come to watch
    As the petrol drips down my face
    Unaware they are
    All just fuel for the blaze

    I will never die
    but be reborn in the flames
    Emerging from the ashes
    pure I proclaim

    In the fire
    Humanities fate
    In the fire

    I don't fear the heat
    Or the licks of searing pain
    I have become separate
    From such simple human ways
    I'm becoming more
    An eternal unending blaze

    but be reborn in the flames
    Emerging from the ashes
    pure I proclaim

    All the inmates up in arms tearin’ up my emotions

    Take another plastic pill ‘til I erase all the problems

    I couldn’t tell if I was in a dream
    Did you see me close my eyes?
    I haven’t felt this way in centuries

    I wondered through the streets
    I’ve been running out of time
    It’s my life and, I just can’t wait
    It’s time for me to leave

    Cuz I’ve got mountains, I’ve got deserts, I’ve got rivers to see
    I’ll be running, I’ll be flying where the wild calls me

    You can catch me (if you can),
    But you can’t keep me long.
    There’s just too many things to see

    I’ve got lovers, I’ve got kindle, I’ve got money to burn
    I’ll be living, I’ll be loving, there’s so much to learn

    You can catch me (if you can)
    You can catch me (if you can)
    You can catch me (if you can)

    I’m a million miles away
    In a place that’s a home I’ve never known
    They ask me, where I’m coming from
    Just putting miles between here and there

    I’m a little bit lost and found
    Feeling the sun in a different worlds
    I’m looking for a quick way out
    For an escape into places unknown

    Cuz I’ve got mountains, I’ve got deserts, I’ve got rivers to see
    I’ll be running, I’ll be flying where the wild calls me

  • The dawn's rays shining clear and bright
    I guess we survived another night

    The days that pass seem dull and grey
    The cameras always lie
    Fading with every breath we barely take
    As we don a vibrant face

    Minds held like glass, clutched in shaking hands
    Riding out the waves of outside seeping in
    Candles in our souls that fail to keep the flame
    Once and once again, we barely remember our names

    The nights seem brighter than the days
    When I'm asleep I don't see the world slip away
    What's the point in a brave face?
    No one can see it anyway

    And I'm leaving my old life behind me

    My ship's setting sail
    and even if I fail
    I'm looking forward to not looking back anymore

    For me this journey means more than traversing land
    Glimmering Gold
    One foot out the door and stepping on a foreign shore
    Glimmering Gold

    Sorrow won't follow me here
    For the path that I travel I've already cleared
    And while it's no yellow brick road
    It's the trail that I blazed and I paved it in gold

    Thanks for the memories
    Old friends and enemies
    We've all taught each other and together we've grown

    Progress isn't painless
    I'm so blessed to say this
    Last year was the last year that I'll live in fear

    The dreams I chase outweigh all the mistakes Ive made
    Glimmering Gold
    The progress that I can't make I will take by force
    Glimmering Gold

    Sorrow won't follow me here
    For the path that I travel I've already cleared
    And while it's no yellow brick road
    It's the trail that I blazed and I paved it in gold

  • Endless celestial construction
    Requires near-constant destruction
    We need materials to function
    So rip apart the planets

    Endless expansion will prevent pain
    Millions of miles of steel will reign
    Millenia have passed, nothing remains
    Of the system that began it

    So here I am
    Looking upon
    The Jupiter Room

    One hundred thousand miles of void
    Where the gas giant was destroyed
    And in its place, just empty space

    Our massive thunder god protector
    Comet and meteor deflector
    Was disassembled by projectors
    Of robot arms and Dyson spheres

    Moon and sunlight are but history
    Black and grey are all that we can see
    The ending of it is sophistry
    There will be endless wires and gears

    So here I am
    Looking upon
    The Jupiter Room

    One hundred thousand miles of void
    Where the gas giant was destroyed
    And in its place, just empty space

    Apart
    The stars

    Tear
    Apart

    Will they scream before your fall?

    You woke up early
    Praying for the sun to rise seems petty
    Hey look, it’s funny
    Everything blurs into normality
    This line in the sand
    Its grand purpose as it guided your hand
    Now it feels too close
    You better gear up to push some dominoes

    It’s the last “Help me !”
    It’s the first “Fuck you !”
    It’s the last “Help me !”
    It’s the first “Fuck you !”
    It’s the friends mourning in secret

    Excuses are ready, but the words won’t come out
    It feels like a last breath because it is one
    Welcome to your first death, you’re here for the long run

    It’s time for mistakes
    Be ready for many years of sweepstakes
    You won’t win them all
    So don’t strive to be just a fly on the wall
    Our world, it’s all grey
    Colors are devils asking for their pay
    All those lips are sealed
    This forgiveness is not yours to yield

    It’s the last “Beware !”
    It’s the first “Explain !”
    It’s the last “Beware !”
    It’s the first “Explain !”
    It’s the jokes getting more serious

    Your mind is bitter, no point in counting rounds
    No lights and no glitter, you hate to know your bounds
    Still feels like a last breath ? Well, you saw it coming
    Welcome to your first death, you're back to the living

    Don’t wait for the second one
    Don’t wait for the second one
    Nothing is said and done

    Innocence and delusion

    Don’t look at what you have lost

    Now that you’re only a soul

    A new holy nirvana, descend to see hope be defunct
    To slowly ever wander, entering oblivion

    The magic within
    Those words

    Wishes can fall from the
    sky onto those who dare
    look up from down below
    We're oracles
    Through which destiny does flow

    Fate is a feathered wing with a span three fold
    Spiralling on through the breeze
    A kindness repaid
    With a song sung out from the trees

    Do you know the secret language of
    The birds
    And do you know
    The magic within
    Those words

    One for sorrow
    Two for joy
    Three for a girl
    And four for a boy

    Five for silver
    And six is for gold
    And seven is for the secrets
    That they hold

    For the secrets that
    they never told

    Sunlight shines from the
    past brightens up today
    How promising tomorrow could be
    Open the songbirds cage
    And throw away the key

    Blue skies and clear eyes,
    heads and hearts, voice and mind
    Where the music is strong
    Deep down you know
    the sun never sets upon a song
  • You set out on your own
    But you couldn't stand the weather
    Now you're knocking at my door
    Begging me for shelter

    Ooooh
    you saw the fire light
    Ooooh
    you know it's warm inside

    You coulda had it all
    but I wasn't enough
    You walked away
    just to try your luck

    Ooooh
    it runs cold sometimes
    Ooooh
    You'll be cold tonight

    CHORUS:
    There's a Storm coming
    A storm coming
    Better buckle down
    Cause you cant out run it
    There's a storm Coming
    a storm Coming
    Tonight

    3 years together
    put my mind on a white dress
    I bought all your lies
    and everything you promised

    Ooooh
    You made that bed
    Ooooh
    Best try to get some rest

    REPEAT CHORUS X 2

    Did you find what you were missing?
    That hollow piece that I could never fill in?
    Well I finally found mine.
    And I can forgive and I can forget
    But I'm doing neither tonight

    REPEAT CHORUS X 2
  • You and me on this mattress is
    The last moment you're clearly mine
    Tomorrow is the day things change

    This fighting we've signed up for
    I don't wanna go to war
    A series of catastrophes hoping for a victory
    Where we can't be us

    The dormitory's aglow
    With nightmares that have come to show
    I'd hold you in my arms if we were closer

    Instead I'll stare at your bed
    Wishing, praying that things were different
    I covet the day "don't ask, don't tell" is behind us

    On these paper-thin mattresses
    There's no sleep, there's no end in sight
    The ghosts we've left behind keep watch

    This fighting we've signed up for
    Hopeless like never before
    A series of catastrophes that result in a victory
    But not one for us

    Love, I would have called us love
    With nothing fair in this love or war
    But when's the world ever been fair to two women?

    Wish we didn't have to pretend
    Waiting for our service to end
    Do we not have the right to love each other?

    On these paper-thin mattresses
    There's just pain and the stench of death
    The trauma of our warfare keeps close

    This fighting we've signed up for
    Hopeless like never before
    A series of catastrophes that result in a victory
    But not one for us

    The thanks we get are just pretty words wrapped in ugly intention
    "Live how you want to" but don't you dare to show or tell
    Who I love is not a lifestyle pay fucking attention
    This in return for giving up my sanity and health

    I've no love for defending this country, only for financial securiy
    I didn't get out of war to become another casualty
    They’re shooting us fucking dead, out on the street
    Don’t you dare glare at me you ain't seen what I've seen

    (Who do you think you are)
    If you want to thank me
    (Trying to say who I can't love)
    treat us with decency
    (I think it's time you fuck off)
    Let me hold hands with the other half of me
    (Unless you wanna meet your god)

    And otherwise you can fuck off
    Your arms are down, I'm stirring up the pot
    You’re not allowed any other thoughts
    GET FUCKING LOST

    ---

    Thank you u/rinidaboss, u/partyeefee and u/countesskillalot for additional vocals :D
  • As the dawn unveils the golden day
    As the tide does hold the ocean sway
    Though we may part
    Soon we will meet again

    Sigh not
    This is not the end

    Glory to sun
    Glory to moon
    Glory to stars
    Glory to you
    Glory to all

    One day you may fall

    One day you may crawl

    The night may blind you

    The knife may find you

    A blight befall your crown

    A knight leave you unbound

    Too far may you fall down

    Arise

    Arise and find the northern star
    Rise and find your heart
    Rise
    Find me in the heather
    Find me in the dew
    Find me

    Rise
  • (Verse)
    The wound is wide open just walk through the door
    Track in salt out of spite or perhaps you're just bored
    There's a crack in the window from the last bottle thrown
    We blame it on the drink but we know its homegrown

    (Verse)
    So let's bury the squandered dreams, all the futures we've lost at sea
    Drown our worries of our yesterdays and sink salvation’s key
    A pair of snakes engulf each other neither willing to release
    A dance we wrote ourselves to bring us to our very knees

    (Chorus)
    Breathe in, scream out
    Till you finally blackout
    Reach in, rip out
    Throw my heart on the ground

    (Verse)
    I wrote a list of every fond memory of you left
    It was empty like your echoes, a barren page bereft
    I'll see you at your funeral a surprise uninvited guest
    Maybe then we’ll have an ending, our feud finally laid to rest

    (Chorus)
    Breathe in, scream out
    Till you finally blackout
    Reach in, rip out
    Throw my heart on the ground

    (Bridge)
    There’s no moving on or up from here, my dear
    Se we'll drag each other down to hell watch the highlights
    Forever
    Forever
    Forever
    Forever

    (Chorus)
    Breathe in, scream out
    Till you finally blackout
    Reach in, rip out
    Throw my heart on the ground
  • A million lives shine bright below, I’m shivering
    Hazy, bitter breeze, won’t wick away my teary streams
    My helplessness, bleeding into my sanity
    I’ve two feet dangling over the steps, so far below

    Carrying all this weight with me
    I’ll shed it all once I fly free

    There’s no one to help me, my hands keep shaking,
    I must've been forsaken
    You deny it but where's your proof
    I won’t humour you from the edge of this roof
    Won’t get off this ledge until I finally rest
    Mind made up, I’m following through
    Can't talk me down, I won't listen to you
    Just deal with the inconvenient truth

    Let me off this roof,
    Completely bereft of ideal or excuse
    I won’t soldier on for you,
    This show we play, this pointless ruse
    These tasteless stones I cannot swallow
    Let me down this blessed bottle
    There's only meaning once I've consumed
    When the world slips by inside my hollow

    Carrying all this weight with me
    I’ll shed it all once I fly free

    There’s no one to help me, my hands keep shaking,
    I must've been forsaken
    You deny it but where's your proof
    I won’t humour you from the edge of this roof
    Won’t get off this ledge until I finally rest
    Mind made up, I’m following through
    Can't talk me down, I won't listen to you
    Just deal with the inconvenient truth

    There is no reforming
    The hopeless the damned
    Must I spell it out for you?
    I don't want to act now
    To live or to think thoughts
    Just one want: to fly off this roof

    You’re so incorrigible, always fighting against fate
    Don't come close I'll jump off this roof, and end this sorry tale
    My life never had meaning, too empty to seize one
    Let me waste away on this roof

    Engulfed in despair, as I fall through the air,
    I need to die with the pain
  • Chasing my tomorrows

    Every time I sigh the world falls down
    Gotta pick up the pieces somehow
    The sky so high becomes my crown

    Every time I cry the clouds could drown
    Gotta dive down deep for answers now
    Chasing my tomorrows around

    Part the waves
    I will fall right in
    Sink or be saved
    Can I even win?

    Don’t understand
    But I need to go
    Where will I land
    How will I ever know

    Running straight on
    Road serpentine
    The journey long
    And solely mine

    I know my path
    And where I've been
    With one last gasp
    I'll reach the end

    Every time I sigh the world falls down
    Gotta pick up the pieces somehow
    The sky so high becomes my crown

    Every time I cry the clouds could drown
    Gotta dive down deep for answers now
    Chasing my tomorrows around
  • I wish I wasn't here
    The visions aren't clear
    Let down by machines
    And their disturbing screens
    I’ve gotta…

    …breathe…
    …breathe…

    Delusions make me paranoid
    I’ve gotta get past the void
    For conditions to settle, my consciousness too
    For my mind to wander back through

    The gravity pulls me back
    Thoughts swells like an ocean
    Cresting at the edge
    Path still unopened

    The world is a safe place
    And I'm okay. I'm alive today
    I'll change my perspective
    Keep my doubts away

    Part of the journey, part of the journey [I’ll find a way to the destination]
    Part of the journey, part of the journey
    Part of the journey, part of the journey [I’ll find a way to the destination]
    Part of the journey, part of the journey

    I wish I wasn't here
    I wish I wasn't here
    I’ll face my fears
    I’ll face my fears
  • I sense her presence as she whispers in my ear
    My legs are becoming numb as I succumb to the fear
    Her voice so sweet but with a devilish undertone
    The rest is silence as she leaves me on my own

    Who is she, to make me feel this way
    Will she leave when the night becomes day
    Do I run or do I choose to stay
    Will I stay strong or will I fade away

    You haunt me while I'm alone
    Your hands cold as stone
    But a fire in your eyes
    Makes me fear the sunrise

    When the morning comes my eyes open to see
    An empty bed, an empty room, an empty me
    She could be my poison, she could be my cure
    I need to stop but all my thoughts are filled with her

    I want to see her again tonight
    But thinking of her makes my chest tight
    Should I welcome her or should I take flight
    Will I do what's wrong or what is right

    I will haunt you when you're alone
    My hands will wake you from the stone
    But the fire burns in my eyes
    Will I make you fear the sunrise

    How long do we have to play this little game
    I treat you like a monster but you treat me the same
    Maybe I should end this, cut it off right there
    Sometimes you're my dream girl, sometimes you're my nightmare

    Don't haunt me while I'm alone
    Our hands no longer cold as stone
    Why hide the fire in our eyes
    Together we face the sunrise
  • What was the plan that my mind had conveyed?
    Blurry walls, and floors like an arcade
    Buzzing neon lights, in my ears and in my sights
    Hallways and staircases, never-ending heights

    I walked for miles and I never left the room
    Crazy patterns, that colored up my tomb
    What is the meaning, and what can I be gleaning?
    What is the message my brain is screaming?

    Hyalotype projections in my head
    Lead by wires patterned like spider webs
    Littering the path with crumbs of dread
    Unraveling the riddle of the silver thread

    My bones feel hollow as I explore this place
    Darkened paths leading to liminal space
    Starting to feel a sense of home and belonging
    Voice of my shadow, beckoning, calling

    Hyalotype projections in my head
    Lead by wires patterned like spider webs
    Littering the path with crumbs of dread
    Unraveling the riddle of the silver thread
  • Windows down in this gentle war
    Let the fever dream run it's course
    Dripping sweat cools the insurgent core
    A hundred hands and eyes, and a hundred more

    Let the night take you in
    Let the dark take you down
    Let it fill all that is hollow
    Adrenaline kill the sorrow

    Let the night take you under

    Furious heart beats just like a drum
    Wishing with crooked hope, succumbed
    Quick silver stare, words like liquid chrome
    Safety off, there are no seat belts upon this throne

    For the thrill of bruises and blurs
    For the heat of engines that growl and purr
    Let the night take you under

    Like a bullet straight on it's trajectory
    Don't worry it's all muscle memory
    The rush and heat of feeling alive
    Abandon and revelation at a hundred and five

    Let the night take you in
    Let the dark take you down
    Let it fill all that is hollow
    Adrenaline kill the sorrow

    Let the night...
  • Sun so hot above
    I'm half scared my shoes will melt
    I don't trust no one but the 6 shooter on my belt
    The sheriff's out to get me
    Gunna' run me outta' town
    He said
    "You best be gone by the time the sun goes down"
    But I don't frighten easy
    And I'm not scared of him
    If he wants a shoot out
    There's no way that he'll win
    There's money here to gain
    But I'll have to keep my wits
    Here I'll make my fortune and then I'll call it quits

    Then they won't see me again

    Just one job
    Just one hit
    Take it all then I can be done with this
    One more rob
    My last one
    One big score and then my thieving days are done

    Stride in through the doors
    Wiping my boots clean
    Make my way to the front of the hall
    It's not yet time to make a scene
    It's nice and empty
    Here in the shade
    Just a bored teller
    Sitting with a shotgun 5 yards away
    I ask, all polite
    For a withdrawal to be made
    He says of course but lunges across
    Playing a dead man's game
    And the six shooter starts barking out
    Putting holes in the poor man's brain
    Gotta move fast
    Gotta act now
    Grab the money, get out while I can

    Then they won't see me again

    Just one job
    Just one hit
    Take it all then I can be done with this
    One more rob
    My last one
    One big score and then my thieving days are done

    "I thought I said to you - you better leave this town?"
    "I've saddled up my horse sheriff, you just have to let me flee"
    "Your escape seemed a little too easy..."
    "And I thank you for your help, now here's the cash
    Half for you and half for me"

    One more job
    One more hit
    I took it all but I can't be done with this
    One more rob
    It's too fun
    I know for sure my thieving days are never done
    One more job
    One more hit
    I took it all but I can't be done with this
    One more rob
    It's too fun
    I know for sure that my thieving days are never done
  • VERSE
    A starless night
    Shines no light on the thoughts of past
    A quiet rain
    Pouring through a drain in my head

    Let the rushing streams
    Suppress my dreams forever
    So I float to the top
    Will it stop, the pain

    CHORUS
    Let rays of sun impale me
    What burns will save me
    I feel hope erasing doubt
    As I black out

    The darkness swallows me whole
    A battle for my immortal soul
    I will not stay here submerged
    to emerge - crave to purge the urge

    [SAX SOLO]

    VERSE
    A cleansing dawn
    I am drawn from inner sanctum
    Incandescent fire
    My soul's fluorescent, brighter

    CHORUS
    Let the sunshine come and spike me
    healing walls of heat strike me
    Confidence removing fear
    it's becoming crystal clear

    Climbing out the lightless hole
    Struggling for my eternal soul
    In me light and dark converge
    find the courage to purge the urge

    VERSE
    And it all comes down to me
    Floods drowning out the screams
    I swim to the top to breathe
    Bringing me through the choppy sea

    [SAX SOLO]

    CHORUS
    Let the sunlight come and heal me
    Open skies, you see the real me
    Bravely beat down despair
    The world has heard my prayer

    Take back all that they stole
    Reclaim my everlasting soul
    Although our paths diverged
    strength surged to purge the urge
  • Hot like pyroclastic flow
    In the sky the dark winds blow
    her cinders ignite the night
    Swirling sparks take wild flight
    Cast away the shackles
    Faith is like a jackal
    In my eyes a fire rages
    strip the book of all its pages

    Brooding in the shadows
    I beg for solace
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
    Behind my walls
    Burned to dust
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red

    He who casts the first stone
    Will always end up alone
    Glowing embers turn to flames
    Our world will never be the same
    Raise your banner, make your stand
    Hold the fire in your hand
    Burn away the fear that was
    Deal out justice just because

    Brooding in the shadows
    I beg for solace
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
    Behind my walls
    Burned to dust
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red

    Dark wings fill the sunset sky
    Whirling shadows soaring high
    A flash prismatic, ashes fall
    In our heart we hear the call

    Brooding in the shadows
    I beg for solace
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
    Behind my walls
    Burned to dust
    The sky is blue But the bull sees red
  • Let’s go to the ice rink together
    We’re gonna race and dance for hours
    Here, everyone falters for a while
    Here, no soul falls without a smile

    Come on, run with me to the town square
    Say bye to your doubts and your bugbears
    You’ll slide and turn this night to gold
    You’ll shout and forget about the cold
    (Let’s run !)

    We can slow down if you want, or call it a day
    Tonight, I trust you, it’s your time to lead the way

    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor

    Let’s go to the ice rink together
    Bring your coat, leave the rest behind
    I want to see the wind in your hair
    If you slip I promise I'll be there

    Be the one to make my heart race
    This is our moment to escape
    We'll carve as much as we design
    Tonight we live for a thousand lines
    (Let’s skate!)

    And when we're done being artists on the ice canvas
    We'll hang up our skates and cherish what enchants us

    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor
    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor

    I've felt that this whole time
    And now you know
    How about we catch up
    Among the snow?

    You told me I’m your lifeline, I wanna be more
    I’ll prove you make my eyes shine on this wintry floor
  • (Verse 1: Northern Florida)
    Christmastime is now upon us, it's our ever yearly promise
    Hear Bing Crosby croonin' on the radio
    But for all the men and missus, they won't have much white for Christmas
    For the summer grass supplants the winter snow

    Waiting in the fields so grassy, just outside ol' Tallahassee
    Waiting for my baby, layin' in the sun
    Playin' cornhole and some horseshoes, grillin' burgers and some more too
    For a yuletide grill out great for everyone

    Now I'm sittin' with my lady, bein' served biscuits and gravy
    Momma cooks us some chicken fried paradise
    A warm southern country dinner, while we're blarin' Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Don't think anything else could ever suffice

    (Verse 2: Central Florida)
    Down to Tampa we've been goin', and it really isn't snowin'
    But that doesn't mean that we should be in pain
    We can spend our Christmas evenin', upon eachother's arms and leanin'
    Kissin' in the fog and pourin' Christmas rain

    And we'll hold eachother closer, ridin' on a rollercoaster
    And we'll carol up and down the orange groves
    Enjoy the poinsettia flowers, ridin' up the Citrus Tower
    Throwin' coins down in the growin' treasure trove

    The foggy lake with light a-closin', almost looks like it was frozen
    Dew on spider webs just like a Christmas tree
    Feelin' many sorts of whimsy, watchin' fireworks at Disney
    Spending Christmas with you in pure harmony
  • The sky turns a bleakish grey
    Hiding the cover of the sun
    It soars over the despairing house,
    Darkening decaying walls and
    Leaving the dust to remain

    The days pass like deafening sirens
    Each more unsettling than the last
    But like an opposing magnet
    I yearn to be farther away, by
    Repelling you in vain

    Where'd I go wrong?
    All love is gone.
    And all that remains
    Is pain

    All that I gave
    All that I had
    And all that we made
    Melts away

    I feel like a grenade
    Waiting to go off
    A fuse split down the middle
    A pin waiting to be pulled
    Sending me in all directions

    All that I can do is
    try to avoid a flame
    But no matter what I do
    No matter what I try, you
    Always drive me insane

    Where'd I go wrong?
    All love is gone.
    And all that remains
    Is pain

    All that we gave
    All that we had
    And all that we made
    Melts away

    Don't stop, move on
    Don't stop, move on
    Don't stop, move on
    Don't stop, move on

    Don't stop, move on
  • The sky it opened wide today
    The rain it washed the pain away
    Made me wonder how you’ve been
    It’s been awhile since way back when

    There’s no going back
    Forgiveness a trait
    We both lack
    Both lost in the fray
    Willing to lose all
    For one day

    Is the sky the same down in Omaha?
    Is it also raining where you are?
    Do you wonder how my friend
    Life would be if the fight would end

    There’s no going back
    Forgiveness a trait
    We both lack
    Both lost in the fray
    Willing to lose all
    For one day

    No taking back the things we said
    Only moving on with the lives we led

    The clouds are clearing from the Sound
    Seasons come and go around
    Another year or ten will pass
    And still this chill between us lasts

    There’s no going back
    Forgiveness a trait
    We both lack
    Both lost in the fray
    Willing to lose all
    For one day

    Happy Endings Are Always Hard

    When the only way to you is through a lager glass,
    It feels like I’m the only thing that doesn’t matter
    Nothing left despite laughter, joy and better times,
    Just resentment, getting sadder
    There’s a love inside, hiding in the shadow,
    Until your walls slammed down forever more
    Our once upon a time seems like some macabre mechanical mime,
    A waste of time

    Chorus :
    So step outside, embrace the city all around
    Its echo, beating with our hearts (With our racing hearts)
    You can find a story if you really try
    But the happy ending’s always hard (No matter how I try)

    So tired of constant talking, please let me be at rest
    Joyous moments hidden in my weary mind
    Distant memories of darkened, fuzzy mystery,
    Forgot to guard this heart and let you in
    Turned to you each time I needed your embrace,
    But you had left to live the dream, a rush of streaking lace
    You wanted fairy tales and fables found on café tables
    A web of lies

    Chorus
    So step outside, embrace the city all around
    Its echo, beating with our hearts (With our racing hearts)
    You can find a story if you really try
    But the happy ending’s always hard (No matter how I try)

    Bridge
    I wanted Hallmark romance,
    We made a tragedy
    I thought you were the one,
    Now look what you have done

    End chorus
    So step outside, embrace the city all around
    Its echo, beating with our hearts (With our racing hearts)
    You can find a story if you really try
    But the happy ending’s always hard (No matter how I try)

    You’ve left me outside in the cold
    You broke me down, truth be told
    Please leave alone, my tender heart
    Our tragedy, right from the very start
  • Well hello there Eve
    Looking as ravishing as ever
    I've come to have a word with you
    About how to make your world better
    Oh?
    Life is pretty good here
    You've got everything you need
    But your father kept the best from you
    And hid it in his greed
    That's not true!!
    Are you calling me a liar?
    What would I have to gain
    I'm sick of all your father's lies
    So you're going to listen to what I say
    Get away from me!

    I don't know who to believe
    Yes you do, you just can't admit it
    My world is turning upside down
    Listen to me child, it won't take a minute

    If I'm to believe this serpent hisssss
    Then I'm living half a life
    I'm giving up my right to choose
    To avoid a life of strife
    You deserve more
    I love my Adam dearly
    But he's always followed blindly
    He would never betray us
    And he wouldn't hear this kindly
    Then tell him nothing
    So this is Father's Apple Tree
    Kept hidden away
    The fruit it bears looks as sweet
    As any I've had to taste
    Even sweeter dear child

    Just one bite and you'll be free
    Or else live without a voice
    With the tree before you, the decision is yours
    Then this will be my first choice

    [solo by allouttaupvotes]

    This knowledge is overwhelming
    And now I have to run
    Adam needs to learn this too
    And now my job is done

    Your Father's sure to punish you
    I accept any wrath he'll bring
    You fell into my trap sweet child
    But I don't regret a thing
  • (Ft. jonhopkinz420 on bass)

    Equal heights we're forbidden to reach
    Hungry mouths that we cannot feed
    Worth measured by the sweat on the brow
    They do with while you go without
    Giving offerings to golden calves
    Selling souls and making devils pacts
    Keeping us at war with ourselves
    While spoon fed on their fairy tales

    The long strong arm of force
    Jackals circling outside your door
    Do what we ask or you'll be compelled
    You are free to walk around this cell
    There's got to be a better way
    Where we are not in disarray
    There is a much better, better way
    Light the torch, today's the day so...

    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    All the emperors dethroned, uncrowned
    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    We're searching for something more profound

    New foundations from the ashes
    [A second chance at second chances]
    So step outside of your prison
    [Take the torch and choose ignition]
    No more turning of the screws
    Rejecting the lies and the abuse
    We've nothing left to lose
    So take the torch and light the fuse to...

    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    All the emperors dethroned, uncrowned
    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    We're searching for something more profound

    Light the fuse, today's the day so...

    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    All the emperors dethroned, uncrowned
    Burn, burn, burn it to the ground
    We're searching for something more profound

    More profound, more profound
  • I brought her carnations / it’s been a year
    Still have these sensations / all is too clear
    But you got off a cab / and came to moan
    To you it’s just a slab/ Just a tombstone

    I guess I’ll welcome you / in my capsize
    But if you came here to / apologize
    Well, you can leave this line / to make it right
    (Because)
    Your husband broke her spine / for a red light

    So don’t be my witness / quit your fake cures
    You are still my illness / I can be yours

    [Chorus]
    I lived until I got that call
    You let him drive to take it all
    Why should we feel closer?

    I kept the names, I closed the files
    I’m skipping through with nods and smiles
    [A+B] And yet it gets longer …

    [B]
    I stopped being carefree/ I felt your gash
    The day my love left me / in this same crash
    Spite rushed in every vein / I pushed it back
    I’m tired to restrain / but can’t unpack

    They see me dignified / while I feel lost
    Under this turning tide / here comes the cost
    Please let me meet your wife / Maybe she knows
    How to repair my life / with a few bows

    And if you let me stay / to scare the fear
    I’ll step into the fray / I’ll lend an ear

    [Chorus]
    My mind is blank and my soul fell
    But if you hate and if I dwell
    Why do we feel closer ?

    My only chance to talk is you
    There’s nowhere else to find what’s true
    Won’t be waiting longer

    [Bridge]
    [A] Let’s discover a way to ease the ache
    [B] And let’s find out there is no blame to take
    [B] Farewells broke us both, this fate is a link
    [A] Then show me the husband behind the ink

    [Chorus, A & B]
    If we want all things to add up
    Crying as one’s a good startup
    That’s how we feel closer

    We’ll share the tales we hid too soon
    Until we get to that one moon
    We wish could last longer
  • Can't you smell the smoke
    Rising from the burrows
    See it swallow the sun
    It seeps in through my nose

    I can taste it my mouth waters
    I've not eaten in a week

    The neighbours in the garden again
    Wonder how he gets it to grow
    Award sized pumpkins
    In soil weeds don't show

    Flies are buzzing round my head
    I barely move count drops instead

    There's a specter screaming
    Can't tell if it's just in my head

    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death


    Someone was shot last night
    Its not been this close before
    Crimson flowing down the gutter
    Nothing gets cleaned anymore

    I guess I should do something
    I'm the only one left
    Where did all my friends go
    I don't remember where they went

    There's a reckoning coming
    I guess I'll be next

    Do you remember waking up
    Thoughts of lost yesterdays
    Summers lost to the haze
    As all our time drips away

    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death

    Come on down to the waters edge
    Plunge deep take no breaths
    Come on down to the waters edge
    Plunge deep take no breaths

    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death
    I can't shake the thought of death

    Scattered rays of neon [Focused on guiding lines]

    They'll catch us unless we're able [Of their parts and of their sum-]

  • VERSE 1
    I want Paris
    A love that’s careless
    Just a slow promenade down an old boulevard
    A man on my arm like an old movie star

    But life ain’t all champagne
    no perfect painting
    Sure the walls of the Louvre are so pretty it’s true
    But the floors are as dirty as my city shoes

    CHORUS
    I want a golden romance
    Filled out in classical forms
    But here on these crowded sidewalks
    I just hear honking horns

    Where is my Valentino
    I wanna be Clara Bow
    Wish life was a silent movie
    So I could enjoy the show

    VERSE 2
    On a Ferris wheel ride
    We go up to the sky
    The jewels in the crown of the carnival grounds
    up in these clouds I can’t hear a sound

    CHORUS
    Of all the hucksters hustling
    Selling three plays a buck
    Aiming for jackpot prizes
    the lights in my eyes and I’m stumbling drunk

    I am not Charlie Chaplin
    I want no Greta Garbo
    Life ain’t a silent movie
    I just enjoy the show

    TRANSITION
    You want all fun n’ games
    And you see the world in flames


    I live life at its face
    No denying this place
    is a chaos that we must embrace


    Let’s turn down the contrast
    On the gloom or I’ll pass
    maybe just change up the cast

    BRIDGE

    I’m getting tired of his oscillating rhythms
    Nothing ‘bout it’s fascinatin’ swear that I could hit ‘em
    Life’s too complicated
    To be so agitated

    I’m getting tired of her juvenile wishing
    flitting in fantasy I want realism
    Life is complicated
    I would never trade it

    I have all these pictures in my mind
    all these pictures in my mind
    all these pictures in my mind

    You and all your pictures in your mind
    All the pictures in your mind
    All the pictures in your mind

    I am getting tired of the life you think your living
    Compromise is fine but we have different visions
    Life is complicated
    Life’s too complicated

    TRANSITION
    You want all fun n’ games
    And you see the world in flames

    VERSE 3
    You stay I’ll leave
    You and your make believe
    I don’t hold nothing against you
    Wish I could see things the way you do

    CHORUS
    But this ain’t a world that’s quiet
    It breathes and booms and busts
    a gut and kicks up a riot
    Good bye and good luck

    Hope you find Valentino
    To call you his Clara Bow
    So you can have your silent movie
    enjoy the show

  • In Death, Disguise or Madness

    [Patroclus]
    I'll never forget how you whispered
    You'd cradle my hair in your palm, I was held in your arms
    We laid together in the dark caves or under the stars

    You told me again and again what you liked
    We had our youth left, to embrace and to smile
    And my reactions towards you are as sweet
    As the song that you play on your lyre

    Love the sound of your song could lead me anywhere
    Your sense of self leaves me defenceless
    No matter what you became I would know you

    In dark, disguise or madness
    You are not to blame for what became of me
    I'm the one who chose to don your pauldron

    There's no need for you to fight now, no point for you to prove
    Just being in your shoes filled me with a pride of loving you

    [Achilles]
    I still know you in death
    Even in my disguise,
    If only everyone could see you the way that I do
    As I did then, I'm sure that you knew
    You followed me no matter the folly I'd choose

    If our destiny was a choice
    I'd have chosen for you

    [Patroclus]
    Achilles I've not seen the future,
    and yet I worry what will come of you now that I'm lost
    Your fame must be worth the life that you pay for it

    There's still time to steal from the fates
    You and your words, I've forgiven your hubris
    Please see sense though things now feel senseless

    Don't follow the fated narrative, Aristos Achaion
    We swore I'd be the reason for your fame and happiness
    Remember the pact of our youth

    Achilles, the other half of my soul, I fear that you will be dead soon
    And your honor is all that will remain.

    [Achilles]
    I can't put you to rest
    With coins in your eyes
    I've yet to outgrow the blind greed you so painfully knew
    I had it then, but now it's for you
    Revenge for your death is all that's left to choose

    I can't leave you to rest
    Dead in my disguise,
    Reality a nightmare that feels too wrong to be true
    Can't sleep at night, can't eat without you
    I had never before felt what it's like to lose

    Patroclus, I have done you the greatest disservice,
    I disgraced you while living, you begged for help from me and I said

    [Achilles and Patroclus]
    “Patroclus, I’ve given enough to them.
    I will not give them this, let them die"

    I dishonor you by fighting to my death
    (Achilles, remember our promise)
    Your loss shines a light on my madness
    (Achilles, what about your honor?)
    I wish that you had let them all die
    (Achilles, I beg you to stop this)
    You are the best of men, philtatos, most beloved
    (Achilles, Aristos Achaion)
    Once I put you to rest, there will be nothing of me left
    (I am made of memories, of memories of you)
    It's not nearly been enough time

    [Achilles]
    The world has no right to my fight,
    They have no right to ask me anything when they let you fall
    Your loss brought with it my vengeance for death
    I'll meet you in Elysium instead
    Until then I'll be cherishing what I have left
    Your ashes and the memory of when you were mine
    Given time,
    I only want to be remembered for having been loved by you
  • An Autumn Scene

    The smell of smoke
    We hear the show
    Neighbors are out back
    Think that we don't know

    The gathered leaves
    It's time to burn
    One season ends
    They sound concerned

    Wheelbarrow's full
    Puts down the rake
    His then tells him
    She needs a break

    Trees growing bare
    That time of year
    It's getting dark
    Right atmosphere

    Holding hands as we watch the show
    The setting sun, until the fire's done
    Glowing, the embers making steam
    An autumn scene

    Arguments
    Flow thru the air
    They don't hit home
    I say a prayer

    Is this the norm
    When that much time
    Passes beween
    An uphill climb

    He asks her why
    She shakes her head
    The wind picks up
    Can't hear what's said

    Hands in pockets
    As she departs
    My forlorn neighbor
    His broken heart
    Torn in parts

    Squeeze my hand so I know you're there
    Though they went bust, it won't be us
    Knowing, the tenderest of teams
    An autumn scene

    The evening's cold
    He went inside
    We'll do the same
    Since the fire died

    Maybe they'll heal
    And seal the cracks
    He'll wait for her
    If she'll come back
    Will she come back
  • There's too much going on now.
    I can't hear myself think.
    There's noise from all directions.
    I'm living on the brink.

    And I will have to face the chaos.
    But it can wait another day.
    Because I'm going to where it's silent
    Yeah I'm going to get away.


    I'm leaving all my cords behind
    The tentacles around my mind


    Out here (out here)
    There's no one near for miles
    Out here (out here)
    I can finally clear my mind


    But I can't stay lost forever
    I have too much incumbency
    So I'm back to where I left from
    And it's getting the best of me

    But I escape just for a moment
    I close my eyes and breath in deep
    And in my mind I'm on that mountain
    In all it's majesty


    I'm leaving all my stress behind
    I feel the peace within my mind


    Out here (out here)
    There's nothing near for miles
    Out here (out here)
    I can finally clear my mind


    I throw my keys on the table
    I can finally choose my course
    No one here to set agendas
    And no rules to be enforced

    And so I pick up my old guitar
    Put those headphones on my ears
    And I escape into creation
    All the noise, it disappears


    In here (in here)
    I'm the one whose in control
    In here (in here)
    I can finally bare my soul

    In here (in here)
    I'm the master of my sphere
    In here (in here)
    I can see the world so clear.
  • Hey there friend
    You wrote a million letters
    I just got 'em
    I promise I'll write more
    I hope you get that sweater
    I don't know how to end this
    Hope to here from you soon

    Hey there friend
    It's been awhile
    Since we talked meanwhile
    Nothing’s happening here
    I might have written a million letters
    But I was too nervous to send them all
    I'm pretty sure you got at least one
    Hope to see you soon

    Hey there friend
    Haven't heard from you in a bit
    Something wrong
    You said you'd write soon
    Maybe you forget my address
    That has to be right
    That has to be right
    You still miss me right?

    Hey there friend
    Its been awhile
    I dont think you you’d recognize me
    I think I’ve forgotten your smile
    Did you get that sweater
    Was it comfy?
    Did you get my letters?
    I know I sent a million this time
    I thought I forgot your address

    hey there friend
    its been hard
    i don't think i’d recognize you anymore
    how long’s it been a year or two
    probably more
    i thought you’d at least reply by now
    it’s funny that even though
    we don't talk anymore
    we’re still looking at the same stars
    they didn't mean anything to you but i thought they were neat
    goodbye friend
  • When you hit the neon streets
    There ain't no time to find your feet, c'mon let's
    Hover, over the edge of night

    Click your heels and count to one
    The two of us are makin' fun, from where we
    Hover, over and out of sight

    I don't need a plan to be happy
    I believe in life on the fly
    In a sea of stars, we'll go farther than by car
    In flight

    Don't break this contact
    Till I bring you back
    From the fold and the furl
    At the end of the world

    Do-do-do-don't be despondent
    When want becomes went
    To the bend or the burl
    At the end of the world

    But the end is not the end
    You'll always be my friend
    It don't need defending
    All those on the ground might stop pretending

    When you feel the town crush down
    There ain't no time to stand around, c'mon let's
    Hover, over the edge of night

    Clap your hands if you want more
    We got a land to go explore, from where we
    Hover, over and out of sight

    We don't need a plan to be happy
    We believe in do, never die
    In a sea of stars, we'll go farther than far
    In flight

    Don't break this contact
    Till I bring you back
    From the fold and the furl
    At the end of the world

    Do-do-do-don't be despondent
    When want becomes went
    To the bend or the burl
    At the end of the world

    But the end is not the end
    You'll always be my friend
    It don't need defending
    All those on the ground might stop pretending

    Take a look around
    That horizon calls to you
    Wake up to the sound
    That surprising point of view

    Take a look around
    That horizon calls to you
    Wake up to the sound
    That surprising point of view
  • I remember when we met my friend
    You were cold and I was starving
    while I was tired I made a fire
    And you shared with me your bread

    It was winter then many moons ago
    We had time we don't have now
    But December winds will always blow
    And whispers echo off the snow

    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    As the night turns into mourning
    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    Gone like before you were born

    I can't believe you're leaving me
    But you'll be in the seaside breeze
    In the swaying trees and falling leaves
    You'll be in the air I breathe

    When you were blind I gave my eyes
    And you lent to me you ear
    When thunder followed lightning strikes
    You told me not to fear

    When the earth and sun collided
    It was you I would confide in
    But you left me here alone
    and I'm only flesh and bones

    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    As the night turns into mourning
    Forlorn
    Forlorn
    Gone like before you were born

    I can't believe you're leaving me
    But you'll be in the seaside breeze
    In the swaying trees and falling leaves
    You'll be in the air I breathe

  • And ashes littered the ground below
    As smoke billowed overhead
    The pariah walked out of the fire pit
    Everybody thought him dead
    He had no time to recuperate
    He wouldn't have time to heal
    His sacrifice should have changed the world
    But were any of those promises real?

    A fierce storm thundered overhead
    Black clouds blocked out the sun
    The pariah was soaked through to the bone
    As he waited for death to come

    A kindly stranger found him there
    Offering honey and milk
    This stranger gave him shelter too
    And clothed him in cotton and silk

    The pariah passed this good deed on
    Helping all he found in pain
    But the more he looked the more he saw
    Of the misery this world contained
    He had to make a change somehow
    End the systemic greed
    Kings and Queens feasted on the fat
    Leaving little for those in need

    The King feared the change this man could bring
    So tricked him with a pact
    If the man could survive the roaring pyre
    The King would give up all he had
    The pariah was silent as he felt the flames
    And the crowd left him and the fire
    The inferno consumed everything
    But it couldn't harm the pariah
  • Verse
    I've had it up to nowhere with your flat attitude
    Reliving the past like it's today

    Carrying a burnt out candle and reading the news
    that was reported yesterday

    Feeling sorry for who you used to be
    guilt twisted sucking you dry

    Crooked mouth lying says that you are free
    cobwebs holding shut your black eye (edited)


    Chorus:
    Hold it all together
    With the story you tell yourself
    Justify living forever
    Demonize somebody else

    Never moving forward
    Ghosts of nothing holding you back
    Reveling in boredom
    Blind future just looking black


    Verse:
    Broken Memory sour tasing regurgitate
    Only remember what you want

    Looking for excuses to wallow in hate
    betraying your only confidant

    See the writing on the wall read it by gaslight
    make up the story as you go

    Knowing deep inside that this is not alright
    hide behind the smile that you show
  • My head was spinnin' and my knees were weak
    My forehead was burnin' and my nose, it leaked
    Wet heavin' all day when, to my surprise
    My third eye opened and I realized

    I'm not of this world, my dearest Ben
    I don't need no air, my closest friend
    You're lookin' at me funny, I don't know why
    I'm tellin' you the truth, man, I'm from the sky!

    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm gonna be there soon
    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm goin' back to the moon

    Shakin' and a-shiv'rin', feelin' 10 foot small
    Banging my head up against the wall
    Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
    Take my hand, toss me into free-flight

    Ben, Benny, Ben, won'cha listen to me
    You're the one earpiece for my Luna-cy
    No one else is gonna listen to my pleas
    So sing along, Benny-boy, sing with me, please

    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm gonna be there soon
    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm goin' back to the moon

    I see the world through dolly zoom
    Pannin' up to see the moon
    The crazy feelin' that I get
    Play it on cristal baschet

    Won't you help me, Benny-dear
    Y'know I don't belong down here
    Bring me back where I belong
    And listen to me sing my song

    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm gonna be there soon
    I'm goin' Back There, Benjamin
    I'm goin' back to the moon
  • My bedroom is a mess
    It’s been a year or two
    Why do I feel helpless?
    There’s so much left to do

    The last drop of my cup
    Won’t give me an answer
    I’ll add everything up
    Somewhere in the shower

    I used to swear it would never happen
    Used to walk when others run
    The food still has taste, but will it last?
    Am I living the last bits of my past?

    People will see
    I should be tough
    I’m too lucky
    Not sad enough
    Won’t find relief
    In the chatters
    I’ll feel my grief
    When it matters

    Those billions in the haze
    They have it worse than me
    Some say to fear their gaze
    And enjoy my story

    We’ve crammed them in a graph
    But if there’s no payoff,
    Who speaks on their behalf?
    Who rubbed their faces off?

    I used to count my blessings every day
    I used to let my pride lead me astray
    Good thing no one will be there to applaud
    The day I’ll forget my OKs are flawed

    People will see
    I should be tough
    I’m too lucky
    Not sad enough
    Won’t find relief
    In the chatters
    I’ll feel my grief
    When it matters

    I’ll keep this legacy of gratitude
    ‘Cause not playing along seems odd and rude
    If I fall on the wrong side of the chain
    Don’t ask me to look for the greater pain

    People will see
    I should be tough
    I’m too lucky
    Not sad enough
    Won’t find relief
    In the chatters
    I’ll feel my grief
    When it matters
  • Black fumes curl in whorls upon pallid skies
    Demons wail in chains, far as the crow flies
    Falling walls, endless mountains of stones
    The grey of death lies over the pall

    The final breath of a mother in throes,
    Children crying as the spirits pass
    Blackened sun illuminating the void,
    The wraiths enchant the minds of the thralls

    Lightning strikes the earth,
    Crackled doom while the humans burn
    Armies of the pure
    Lay their rotten fingers over everything

    Turgid mud churning under the foot
    Desperate eyes peer from under thick soot
    Heaving mass writhing in acrid air
    One after another, makes the fall

    Lightning strikes the earth,
    Crackled doom while the humans burn
    Armies of the pure
    Laid to waste like all gods were before
  • I wish I left a love note
    For you sitting on your desk
    But I've never been there
    There's no good way to express

    I cant just send an email
    Or post it on your wall
    I try to convey my feelings
    To you through video calls


    Trapped alone inside my home
    Going outside just isn't smart
    Maybe I'll write a poem
    To my dearest faraway heart.


    Our calls are my only highlight
    Long days spent on a screen
    From dawn until the twilight
    I type into my little screen

    Someday we can be maskless
    And show our true ourselves
    How long this lasts, no one can guess
    Trade mental for physical health


    Zoom's no stand-in for real life
    All but you I want to forget
    Could I be your love, be your wife
    When we have never met

    I get overwhelmed when it's too much
    The waiting's just so hard
    I ache in my soul, long for your touch
    Need to be with my faraway heart.


    Yet we found each other on the web
    Cupid hit us through an app
    We heal each other as sickness spreads
    Your far location on the map

    We're saving up for you to fly here
    But it's so hard; money's tight
    Lost jobs and stalled careers
    Your voice and face - they set me right


    I can't wait until I finally see you
    In your arms, no longer apart
    All the past times will now be new
    You're here now, my faraway heart
  • It's half past godforsake o'clock and I've never felt more apart than this moment
    Handles pointing opposite, mirroring the way we sit on the sofa
    The space colder than it's close

    Two throats so dry from words unsaid with tears that flood river beds not yet frozen
    A chill that permeates the air, seeping through in everywhere,
    My hands have never been this cold

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    Put your head on my shoulder, come and give me your hand
    Maybe we'll know better when the sun comes up

    My watch keeps ticking mercilessly, it doesn't offer empathy for the broken
    The smooth surface keeps mocking me, as I shatter endlessly
    Why does my reflection lie?

    There's nothing sweet in this wasteland where ice forms, sharp enough to stab
    Where the sentiment of past chokes me up in moments that we never had

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    Put your head on my shoulder, come and give me your hand
    Maybe we'll know better when the sun comes up
    I'll be praying for tomorrow

    There's a hidden message here between the thorns of roses placed in my bouquet
    The scent of sentiment suffocating, closing on in
    A front that keeps away the warmth, a fog keeping us in the dark
    I keep praying for tomorrow

    There's a hidden message here between the morning and the dark that follows light
    If we stay still maybe time won't pass us by
    An instance we both hold our breath, forever is better than death
    I keep praying for tomorrow not to come

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    There's no avoiding we could suddenly be strangers
    Isn't it strange? Isn't that strange?

    There's no avoiding the unavoidable
    We could suddenly be strangers, isn't it strange?
    Put your head on my shoulder, come and give me your hand
    Maybe we'll know better when the sun comes up
    I'll be praying for tomorrow not to come
    I'll be praying for tomorrow not to come
  • When will you lock away the dragon in your mind?
    The scars of fire ache inside, the fear I try to hide
    You threaten me with promises of tenderness and love,
    I buckle and I bend, too strong to break again

    Words from silver tongues can never worm into my mind,
    Each lie, it falls and shrivels when I see familiar signs,
    Tracing my reminders of every time I bled,
    I buckle and I bend, too strong to break again
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know


    Forged in darkness,
    Strong as perfect steel,
    I don’t long for you,
    You were never real
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know
    Akkuin akka!
    Akkuin akka!

    When red horizons rise, it’s time to run and hide,
    Your anger, it erupts and it envelops me inside,
    The ugly face of man, entitled, rotten flesh,
    I buckled and I bent, to leave you here for dead

    The twisted hate inside your soul,
    It fuels the demon in the hole
    This story is a sordid thing,
    The demon dressed up like a king
    It sounded like a fairy tale,
    Aesop’s finest happy fable
    Turned into a horror show,
    But I’m still here to make it flow

    Forged in darkness,
    Strong as perfect steel,
    I don’t long for you,
    You were never real
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know
    Akkuin akka!
    Akkuin akka!

    Too strong to break again…
    Never feel that way again…

    I, felt the dark grow inside me
    You, rained with roiling spite
    Drowned in senseless rage
    Burdened with the blame

    Shed this dying skin
    Shed the numb within
    Tears upon my skin
    Sobbing deep within…

    In your silver suit facade, it’s easy just to see,
    The broken bully, scared, alone, unable to be free
    Ivory tower up above, so far away from all,
    You burst and burn alive, what’s dead will never die


    Forged in darkness,
    Strong as perfect steel,
    I don’t long for you,
    You were never real
    Akkuin akka — Reap what you sow,
    Akkuin akka — Now you know
    Akkuin akka!
    Akkuin akka!

    Now, you know
  • A thorn from your rose, it splits my tongue
    Leaves my mouth both heated and numb
    Crying curses towards your moon and stars
    May they be forever furthest from the sun

    A bud that sprouts, fresh, from bitter soil
    Noxious and vicious, intent to destroy
    Crying curses towards the sky in appeal
    May your horizons darken and forever boil

    It is finished
    It is done
    By my own hand
    Wicked has won

    The hunger in my heart, this garden it stalked
    I cannot outrun my own ragged remorse
    Crying curses towards the ravens and hawks
    As they haggle and feast upon your corpse

    Petals all shades of my blossoming woe
    Smothered so deep just the devil might know
    Crying curses towards azaleas that spy
    May nothing but sorrow take root and grow

    It is finished
    It is done
    By my own hand
    Wicked has won

    I've spent all my curses
    I'll appeal to the judges
    The misfortunes of passion
    A capricious action
    The hand indeed sinful
    But my heart is mournful
    In the shadow of the oak
    Where I opened his throat

  • Verse:
    Sit in silence and reads the faces
    A second like an hour, remembering places
    The words drip and cut like a thousand papers
    Drop the head and feel betrayed, still no laters
    Tomorrow for some, may never come
    No light left, behind the eyes, and with all that we’re done

    Chorus:
    It always starts with Once Upon a time
    Once upon a time
    It always ends with a breath in time
    Once upon a time
    Fairy tales in demons dreams once were mine,
    Once upon a time
    Once upon a time
    Once upon is fine

    Verse:
    Taking a step forward, hit by a train back
    What in life is this feeling that we lack
    The tears burn like rivers each and every day
    The lines etched in me like scars in their own way
    We repeat the story, we repeat the past
    Time heals all wounds as we never last

    Chorus:
    It always starts with Once Upon a time
    Once upon a time
    It always ends with a breath in time
    Once upon a time
    Fairy tales in demons dreams once were mine,
    Once upon a time
    Once upon a time
    Once upon is fine

    Coda:
    When we give it power in its name,
    It drips like poison from our tongues
    It’s like we never learn from our
    Once upon a times, once upon a lies
    The moment we let it in,
    That moment we are gone
    Hope is a four letter word,
    That we throw at children's songs
    Hope is having faith in humanity
    Faith is a hopeless cause
    When we live in once upon a time
    Once upon a time
    Once upon a time.
  • Another day is dawning
    The quiet roads are yawning
    I’m looking for you
    In the rearview
    But you’re no longer there

    The highway humming softly
    The sunlight slowly dropping
    I thought I saw you
    In the rearview
    But you’re no longer there


    A new dawn is broken
    I
    Have words unspoken
    Now
    The sky is wide open
    I’ll see you again
    Where the horizon ends
    And my journey meets the sky

    The morning star is fading
    The world awash in waiting
    Still looking for you
    In the rearview
    But you’re no longer there


    A new dawn is broken
    I
    Have words unspoken
    Now
    The sky is wide open
    I’ll see you again
    Where the horizon ends
    And my journey meets the sky


    A new dawn is broken
    I
    Have words unspoken
    Now
    The sky is wide open
    I’ll see you again
    Where the horizon ends
    And my journey meets the sky
  • Been trying to
    Decipher the smoke
    How it drifts
    And how it chokes

    Been trying to divine
    The shadows
    And the time
    How they know
    Give me a sign


    Burn strong, burn bright
    Burn like a candle
    In the night


    Like a moth to the flame
    Too spellbound and possessed
    To see
    The light
    That's been chasing me


    Burn strong, burn bright
    Burn like a beacon
    In the night


    The sun was at my back all along
    Looking in the wrong direction for so long
    The sun had my back all along
    All I had to do was turn around


    Been trying to
    Scrutinize the smoke
    All it hides
    And all it cloaks
    Been trying to sift through wishes
    The past
    Lost within this
    At last
    A clear path


    Burn strong, burn bright
    Burn like the dawn
    Breaking the night


    The sun was at my back all along
    Looking in the wrong direction for so long
    The sun had my back all along
    All I had to do was turn around

    And I have been delicately caught
    In the palm of your hand
    When I was smoldering, spiraling
    You are what I've always sought
    Instead of flying off
    I should have turned around
  • So long, adios
    This is the part where I hit the road
    There is nothing left for me here
    No silver lining

    Stand up, raise a glass
    Like all good things I too shall pass
    I’ve done all that I needed to do
    The light’s so blinding

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    Blazed through, wasted youth
    But when it mattered, I spoke my truth
    I lost more battles than I won
    But I’m still smiling

    Mess made; bed laid
    Should have gone but also stayed
    Decisions that made so much sense
    Now leave me pining

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    And I never performed on a stage
    And I never learned to fly a plane
    The thought that I would sacrifice my freedom for a moment’s high
    Is crazy in a life like mine
    Where I’ve always been just fine
    Just fine

    Meet someone, fall in love
    Last a year but then move on
    We both know we’re much better off
    So keep on swiping

    Bored, tired - doesn’t sound like me
    I’ll snatch a defeat from victory
    My friends, foes, fam and countrymen
    We’re all here, crying

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    Check out, pay the bill
    You can’t stop me, I won’t keep still
    Worked hard each and every day
    And I’m still climbing

    Blessed be the fruit
    I bow to no one, including you
    I’m the master of my own demise
    Look at me – winning

    Ticket booked, one way
    First class, free champagne

    nd I never performed on a stage
    And I never learned to fly a plane
    And I never dared to stoke the flame
    And I never called you by your name
    The thought that I would sacrifice my freedom for a moment’s high
    Is crazy in a life like mine
    Where I’ve always been just fine
    Just fine
  • Taking my final breath
    Give me a little death
    A swiftly dark release
    The waves are crashing now
    Consuming broken bow
    Pulling me underneath

    Follow your losing lead
    Swallow the whole of me
    There is no coming back
    Dive down into the dark
    Follow my breaking heart
    To save what cannot last

    Drowning faster than my hope can rise
    And you’re still not letting go

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    I’ve given all I have to give
    Leave me all my life to live
    Save ourselves the dark dismay
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    Look where you saw me last
    Remember all that passed
    The lessons that we learned
    And should you see me now
    I’ll be more lost than found
    A memory that you burned

    Drowning faster than my hope can rise
    You learned to let me go

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    Release me from these broken waves
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    You took us out to sea
    You took the whole of me
    Until the world fell down
    Until we both could drown

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    Release me from these broken waves
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    You’re watching from a distant shore
    Holding on for one breath more
    Release me from these broken waves
    It’s not too late to walk away
    Walk away
    To walk away

    You said you had to stay
    But then you walked away
    Walk away
    Walk away
  • Led in chains
    Flagellated
    blood-like roses crown her head.

    Pain is real, so is the Fear,
    she knows Freedom has a price..

    Light the Pyre
    Set her on Fire
    Her Truth is poison to our ears.

    Freedom is within herself
    nobody can take it from her.

    Wide awake she walks the charcoal path
    thoughts don't matter anymore

    Ignorance as crowd control
    The wicked lit the wick of their demise...

    Her Science is real and so are their fears
    orcs and dragons she may fight
    but she knows, oh she well knows,
    the scariest ghouls are flesh-boned Men.

    Freedom is within herself
    nobody can take it from her.
    Freedom is within herself
    nobody can take it from her.

    [You knew it was coming... it's SOLO TIME]

    The delusions and dead gods ran far too long
    viled and poisoned the well
    children are born blind and deaf.
    History redeem yourself!

    When her ashes fall and spread
    in the corner of our eyes
    a nested dream will be--- Reborn
  • Everyday as the sunrise comes over the mountains on the east
    My ambition grows bolder
    I'm here to conquer maybe won't have time for niceties
    I'm growing bolder

    Holding my future in my hands
    Watch as the world unravels my plans
    You ain't seen nothing yet

    So much certainty in what the world will make me out to be
    There's no other moment, this time is mine (mine!) (mine!)
    Barreling into the future, my success clear as day
    Don't blink or you might miss everything coming my way

    As I stand where the ocean waves crash onto my feet
    I grow colder
    The height of pressure taking its time to crash onto me
    Weight's on my shoulder

    Holding my future in my hands
    Watch as the world unravels my plans
    I've not seen nothing yet

    So much certainty in what the world will make me out to be
    There's no other moment, this time is mine (mine!) (mine!)
    Barreling into the future, my success clear as day
    Don't blink or you might miss everything coming my way

    I won't stand here and be lectured
    Won't accept your ridicule
    Your insistence to taunt me
    No surprise I've seen your rule
    It's time to bow down
    Say goodbye to not-so-glory days
    There's only one option left now
    Everything coming my way

    So much certainty in what the world will make me out to be
    There's no other moment, this time is mine (mine!) (mine!)
    Barreling into the future, my success clear as day
    Don't blink or you might miss everything coming my way
  • Like busy body ants, crawl across the mantelpiece
    Always running, never getting anywhere
    Divorced from meaning, tired of the pain
    Wash them all away

    Breathless, the work is never done
    Feed the need of these parasites
    Endless, the struggle rages on
    Pieces of us all are left to rot away

    Watching, wishing that my heart will beat again
    But the window only shows the grey
    Another wretched morning, compelled to join the crowd
    I cannot find the strength to face the day
    In monotony we’re meant to find our peace
    But I’m beaten down

    Breathless, the work is never done
    Feed the need of these parasites
    Endless, the struggle rages on
    Pieces of us all are left to rot away

    We feel the bonds, they drag us down
    The tyranny of totality
    I know I’m captured by expectancy
    I’ll make it go somehow

    Breathless, the work is never done
    Feed the need of these parasites
    Endless, the struggle rages on
    Pieces of us all are left to rot away

    I’ll make it go somehow
    I’ll make it go somehow
    I’ll make it go somehow
    I’ll make it go somehow

    I feel like an ant under the boot
    Smash them all away…

  • It ain't about the money
    We're in it for the show
    We've been getting something ready
    And world needs to know

    While most of the world is in bed sleeping
    Our slice of life is up all night dreaming
    living and breathing with all of our being
    Working on beats, plotting, an' scheming

    getting all ready for the day we're seizing
    Practice until every lines got feeling
    down in the studio, spittin out and dealin
    A bomb ass track, a masterpiece gleaming

    We refuse to settle cause we're making something special
    So fuck the writer's block we'll go beneath it
    And dig down deeper to the bottom of the well
    Cause there's a wish down there if you believe it

    One more line
    one more rhyme
    one more note
    one more time
    one more stage
    one more night
    one more chance
    to get it right

    It ain't about the money
    We're in it for the show
    We've been getting something ready
    And world needs to know

    Cables mics synths and keys
    Riffs, amps, drums and leads
    Collaboration Community

    There's a common told unhelpful myth
    That everybody's born with some special gift
    musicians aren't born, or christened
    You see an hour on stage, but how many went in?

    better not discount our discipline
    the screamed out throats and the calloused skin
    we get going when the going gets tough
    we practice till we're good enough to stand up

    spilling our soul and blood and guts
    in dark rooms, that might not listen
    and if we get cut down or passed up
    its back to the lab to continue the mission
  • You'd see us playin' high up on the stage, underneath bright flashing lights
    Wide angle shots of us shreddin' away, singing out into the night
    Rotoscoping and some special effects, as superb as they can be
    With good promotion and the right time slot, we'll be kings of MTV

    A tool for promotion
    Bottle in the ocean
    The people would love us-

    -if this song had a video
    I tell you, it would be a great one
    Everything would be synced up to the music
    Nothing would be wasted
    And I tell you it would be fun

    In this part you would see us all alone, in a forest far away
    Dancing in the dark, singing in the rain, every place and every way
    And then we'd all become animated, with light shining from our eyes
    Spirals and zigzags flying around, colors filling up the skies

    Crazy imagery
    Wrought with symmetry
    Bound to stick in your head-

    -if this song had a video
    I tell you, it would be a great one
    Everything would be synced up to the music
    Nothing would be wasted
    And I tell you it would be fun

    We'd have lots of fun, come on

    C'mon, let's have lots of fun!
  • (Verse)
    I was drinking in a restaurant, southeast of Gainesville
    And something 'bout the way she looked, it bent me to her will
    And the way she grabbed my collar, made me feel like I was ill

    She took me pack to her place, and I felt our love was true
    We laid in bed and tossed and turned, and when the night was through
    I woke up and then she was gone, and I was just confused

    (Chorus)
    Was she just a phosphene?
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

    (Verse)
    Well I went back to the restaurant, to have myself a think
    I tried to see if you she was there, I felt my heart just sink
    I couldn't see her anywhere, and bought myself some drinks

    As I drank myself half to death, I let my sadness out
    I smashed my glasses in my hands, and I felt myself shout
    "Oh where did you go, woman?" And I felt myself pass out

    (Chorus)
    Was she just a phosphene?
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

    (Solo)

    (Half-verse)
    So there I was along the road, arm held out for a ride
    And what I saw across from me, it tore me up inside
    For there I saw the woman, with a new man by her side

    (Chorus)
    She was just a phosphene
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes

    She was just a phosphene
    A flash of light, gone in the night
    A phosphene
    Lost in the lies when I opened my eyes


  • Emotion: Resentment

    Verse 1
    Housing market's gonna fall down
    Climate change means we will all drown
    This was all done without consent
    The past was different from the present
    All that's left to do is just frown

    Work your way through college you're told
    What other lies were you sold
    Living costs exponentially rose
    Stuck with debt that'll never resolve
    Only thing left here is fool's gold

    Chorus
    It will be fun is what they always said
    But all that's left is existential dread
    Reduce reuse recycle
    Won't make up for lobbyist rule
    Can't make a difference so just go ahead

    Verse 2
    Read books stop playing video games
    Find a job by taking down names
    No more coffees or avocado toast
    Without napkins you'll be a terrible host
    How could there be no shame

    Raise a family on one income
    If we did it, it can be done
    Living costs spiral every day
    To all the boomers well okay
    It isn't good now for anyone

    [instrumental]

    Chorus
    It will be fun is what they always said
    But all that's left is existential dread
    Reduce reuse recycle
    Won't make up for lobbyist rule
    Can't make a difference so just go ahead

    Tempestuous pangs, they gnaw away,
    Grab onto you, lay down my root,
    And finally feel at ease

    (01:21-01:32)
    I know that when,
    We go we’ll be,
    Flying free,
    Serenity

    (01:33-01:46)
    My ray of light, the wall at the sea
    We weather it all so easily
    Without, there’s no within
    So meet me at the end

    (02:10-02:31)
    Trace my tender lips,
    Embrace my whole,
    My fire pacified,
    My soul enthralled
    Hearts intertwined,
    Our singing sighs,
    Spent, catching breath,
    And lay to rest

  • Everybody wants to be king of the hill
    But I wanna get to the top and jump off, just for the thrill

    I wanna gather up all the caution
    And throw it off into the wind
    The lows I've experienced
    All erased by adrenaline
    So sick of the futility
    Watching the hours tick on by
    My head is in the clouds
    And I'm free-falling from the sky


    And I will chase
    Whatever keeps my heart racing
    Run towards
    Whatever keeps my heart blazing


    Cause my heart beats much faster
    When I'm running with wolves
    And my heart beats much faster
    When I break all the rules


    The nerves of momentum
    Beat the anxiety I feel when I'm numb
    Wanna feel I've lived a life worth leading
    When the end it finally comes
    It's all about the will and whim
    The impulse and the risk
    It's all about how free you feel
    In that one moment of magic

    [1:48]
    And I will chase
    Whatever keeps my heart racing
    Run towards
    Whatever keeps my heart blazing


    Cause my heart beats much faster
    When I'm running with wolves
    And my heart beats much faster
    When I break all the rules

    And I will chase
    Whatever keeps my heart racing
    Run towards
    Whatever keeps my heart blazing


    Cause my heart beats much faster
    When I'm running with wolves
    And my heart beats much faster
    When I break all the rules
  • Wake up, coffee on
    Shower if I’ve got the time
    Half a slice of toast and I’m out the door at ten to nine
    Train’s late by just a minute
    Enough time to stare into the distance

    Wake up, Tuesday’s harder
    I showered yesterday – whatever
    Bread’s gone mouldy, no surprise, scrape it off and head outside
    Train’s late by just a minute
    Enough time to question my existence

    Wake up, rolling over
    Not again, you must be joking
    Bacon roll, treat myself, not like I care for my health
    Fucking train, it’s late again
    Enough time to question everything

    Wake up, hello Thursday!
    God, this is excruciating
    Think about a pint tonight – I’ll fill the void with what I like
    Stupid train’s on time today
    Stupid motherfucking train

    Wake up, fuck you Friday
    Snoozed alarm, eyes still blurry
    Think about calling in sick but what’s the point of staying here?
    Missed the train by just a minute
    Now there’s too much time to think about

    Wake up, wake up
    It’s just the same again but different
    Spend the weekend drinking, eating, curled up in a ball and weeping
    The train still goes but I’m not on it
    Yeah the train still goes but I’m not on it

    Wake up, back to sleep
    Stomach full of half-told dreams
    There’s no conclusion, no end complete
    I’ll keep consuming everything
    Because something’s got to work, okay?
  • It’s the only thing I ever wanted
    I scratched and crawled through my disgrace
    Don’t you dare to take it from me
    Please leave me just my fallen place

    I know that you could take it easy
    A sable nod is all you need
    I’m telling you that it will break me
    If nothing else just take this heed

    A little slower now
    (I can feel the fall a-coming)
    Don’t tell me how
    (I know there’s no use running)
    There’s no escape now
    (My time is never coming)
    You’re going to take it all from me
    All except my jealousy

    A sacrifice was too much for asking
    I should have guessed it from the start
    Can’t blame a guy for one last try
    Appealing to your lack of heart

    There you go, you’re stepping in
    Taking up what was my place
    As if I were a super void
    Existing just to take up space

    A little slower now
    (I can feel the fall a-coming)
    Don’t tell me how
    (I know there’s no use running)
    There’s no escape now
    (My time is never coming)
    You’re going to take it all from me
    All except my jealousy

    Don’t you dare say it wasn’t done on purpose
    I know you best and you never did know me
    You are snake eyes and the earliest sin
    Take it all and come on set me free

    A little slower now
    (I can feel the fall a-coming)
    Don’t tell me how
    (I know there’s no use running)
    There’s no escape now

  • [Emotion: Joyfulness]

    To her, it was like the Sun didn’t hide behind the clouds and the rain
    Because, one foot after the other, she walked.

    She craved for something more
    Than a bed and ti-red fa-ces
    (Tired faces)

    She's gonna push that door
    Her steps will be sepa-rate dan-ces
    (Separate dances)

    What if it was too cold ?
    And could she really go headfirst ?
    (Go Headfirst)

    A whole world to remold
    Waited her euphoria to burst
    (Outburst)

    Last month - when her best years seemed lost and cried
    She gazed her window for a guide
    For the quietest waving by the hillside
    (The hill side)

    And then - she saw the tulips were in bloom
    They looked different in these costumes
    She wondered and witnessed this newfound room
    (Newfound room)

    Now that she couldn’t fall
    She realized she needed closure
    (Needed Closure)

    None can erase it all
    But some manage to start over
    (Start over)

    Maybe she'll write a book
    Maybe she'll become president
    (President)

    With no boundaries to look
    She's done waiting for her advent
    (Her advent)

    Falling - in this entrancing vertigo
    Where every dream could live and grow
    Her whole body forgot how to say no
    (To say no)

    All gone - are the doubts, the fears and the gloom
    The air felt like a new perfume
    And her mind uncovered this newfound room
    (Newfound room)

    Her own

    (Fast spoken, almost rapping)
    She’s now believing
    It’s all worth living
    It’s all up to her
    She’ll sort and she’ll stir

    Wonderful misses
    Chocolate and kisses
    Parties and new friends
    Embrace, make amends

    Painting for her sake
    Driving ‘til daybreak
    Her rules are rewrote
    She will be afloat

    It doesn’t matter
    It’s been an hour
    When she felt lowbrow
    Was a life ago

    She’s now believing
    It’s all worth living
    It’s all up to her
    She’ll sort and she’ll stir

    Wonderful misses
    Chocolate and kisses
    Parties and new friends
    Embrace, make amends

    Painting for her sake
    Driving ‘til daybreak
    Her rules she rewrote
    She will be afloat

    The day she’ll feel down
    Alone in the town
    She’ll make space once more
    Until she could soar !

    Falling - in this entrancing vertigo
    Where every dream could live and grow
    Her whole body forgot how to say no
    (To say no)

    All gone - are the doubts, the fears and the gloom

  • I Can Fly

    This world we live in, is so full of beauty and bliss
    The lovely nature, it can't get much better than this
    There's little better, than laying down in the grass
    And let the anger, and hatred of life slowly pass

    It's almost something I'd see in a dream
    And the view I get is perfect it seems

    But I can fly
    Up in the sky
    And I can see
    Everything life can be

    I see it all with, these wings I grew a week ago
    And how I grew them, I'm not sure that I'll ever know
    My wings are painted, like the soul of a butterfly
    And with such beauty, do you even need to ask why?

    I feel alive, like never before
    Wanna see it all, just gotta see more

    Cos I can fly
    Up in the sky
    And I can see
    Everything life can be

    Fly with me

    But I can fly
    Up in the sky
    And I can see
    Everything life can be
