Amygdala 03:10
An old Polaroid with a person removed There’s a me-shaped hole in all your family albums A severed cerebrum sheds in strips to the floor The chill of you’s triggered through my hypothalamus Each time’s the same, but this reckless brain’s holding on Why did you vivisect me? Never knew you had surgical skills Cause you took out the beaty thing that was in my chest Why did you vivisect me? Amygdala, you make me so mad Back and forth and back again like a tumor returned Now my hippocampus is a huge load-bearing wall You infected me and my Wernicke died Their warning words were getting slurred in my broken skull Like magnets attract my lobotomy’s coming back till you’re gone Why did you vivisect me? (Meningitophobia) Never knew you had surgical skills Cause you took out the beaty thing that was in my chest Why did you vivisect me? (Meningitophobia) Amygdala, you make me so mad Like a storm that won’t quit, reason won’t deter these crazy kids Insane is repeating what didn’t work My brain’s getting in the way Serious mental injury is bound to happen to those who are not careful Why did you vivisect me?

Pretty Rings 03:36
There’s lots of space out in space between us, the sun, the moon and Mars I’m looking up and growing angel wings There’s lots of trash in our trash that fills up our earth, look to the stars Let’s make it into treasure, imagine Earth with rings So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting life we give There’s lots of rings in the outer regions, but we don’t get a few I want to reach out but it’s never near There’s lots of cosmic debris that’s making them shine, so let’s shine too And when the ships lock on us, they’ll see that we're here So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting life we give So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting life we give There’s lots of space out in space between us, the sun, the moon and Mars I’m looking up and growing angel wings There’s lots of trash in our trash that fills up our earth, look to the stars Let’s make it into treasure, imagine Earth with rings So sing loud, the world will know that Beauty will always live It shines bright above our home Reflecting extinction

You're wired, you're dreamin' You're not the only one It's ok cause you got a loan And you're the reason for the future But for you today It can't be easy on your own Hold closely this trophy This world is cold and burning We placed you, then raced you After our victory You see... you're free... To clean our attic, right? You're free... to try to be like me 300 years to now It's in the founding of us The top is victorious The ceiling's glass you speak of It only breaks from above Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through And though we put them there we'll just act like we never knew The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space We left... (whisper): this world for (reg): you Say thaaaanks! This ad wants your dollars And you don't have a one But hey at least you have a phone You need it so more ads can sell more shit to you as they Spy on you naked in your home You're nosy.... there goes the Notion you won't ask questions Our fact boards look backwards 300 years to now It's in the founding of us The top is victorious The ceiling's glass you speak of Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through And though we put them there we'll just act like we never knew The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through Incase you didn't notice, everybody lied to you The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through You might not notice them if you got enough drugs to do The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space We left... this world for you Say thaaaanks!

Da Capo 03:21
My aching legs await the words that pour from pens The kind he sings in rhyme define my every step It ends and briefly then the puppet strings go limp But when it starts again, so does its Sisyphus Cause all I know is this: the song that never quits In the earworm from hell There’s a cell behind the bars and lines Don’t believe in the lie When the pie says music died Beneath your mp3 a scene repeats all day It’s me who plays the lead but dreams of an escape As if a broken disc could skip an endless jam My arms are slaves to art, I march to bard’s command On charts Descartes is crammed, he sings therefore I am In the earworm from hell There’s a cell behind the bars and lines Don’t believe in the lie When the pie says music Diatonic decay Da capo decapitates Do re mi fa so la ti do Oh slay me god or let me go

In just one day, with just one lie, one elephant Starts off as a little one, keep it inside, don’t mention it One hundred days, one hundred lies, but one thing’s true An elephant weighs a ton, it’s harder to hide it since it grew The ceiling crumbles, the elephant’s drunk Breaks down the walls like a hurricane The trunk of secrets won’t be talked about Until you’re gone The trumpet sounds, the ground will shake, don’t mention it We’ll both keep on feeding it, and calmly eat while the tension sits And after days of locking eyes, the tusks get hooked Did you know that elephants can paint pictures, let’s see how it looks The ceiling crumbles, the elephant’s drunk Breaks down the walls like a hurricane The trunk of secrets won’t be talked about Until you’re gone
7.
Henchman sweep the foggy street The president’s in jail If I’ve learned one thing on earth, its evil will prevail Abandoned shops are boarded up Upon the door they nailed A bloody board that tries to warn that evil will prevail In the mud, a sluggish schlub Is crawling like a snail Did his dad not tell him that evil will prevail? Covert ops and crooked cops Have heads they must impale It’s okay they’ll all get paid when evil prevails Neon lights that shine so bright Obscure a darker veil One by one the heroes run cause evil has prevailed Tumbleweeds roll down the street As dogs eat their own tails Misery’s like air you breathe when evil has prevailed A picket fence with stains and dents A mailbox stuffed with mail Envelopes envelop ghosts when evil did prevail Rain so thick it falls in bricks To crack the cars with hale Falling down to slowly drown where evil had prevailed A storm that swirls and eats the world Will soon be setting sail What a time to be alive, evil will prevail
8.
Well the Death Star's a giant dance floor So slap Jar Jar's ass at the door Now that the Jedi's not our downfall Get on the dark side of my disco ball Evil will always prevail And who doesn't love evil females? Dance with light sabers out in the dark While I shake my ass for the patriarch It's my new groove, I'm the emperor I'm evil as balls Evil makes us true adventurers Lap dance from Darth Maul It's my new groove, in the emperor's Death Star It's my new groove, and it's also a meth star *sound of the emperor snorting crystal meth off jar jar binks' ass* Jar Jar gets me to go down My vision's turning brown, ooo The galaxy's melting down A certain Lucas not a where to be found
9.
Like my old man did Taking the kid out to fish Hold them when they’re young Then you blink and they’ve grown up Doctor called yesterday Sank so low as he spoke Better late than never to bond on the boat Blazing morning sun Kiddo’s coughing up a lung Innocent and brave I wish I could say the same Shaking fists push him in Splashes shaking the lake Then it’s still, and I paddle away
10.
Sexy Silk 03:59
Please oh please, my widow lady If you really love me you’ll cut me through Eight legs crawl through our bed at night Wrapped in sexy silk Tonight’s the night, says the eight-eyed face While I’m wrapped in sexy silk I long to feel like intimate cannibals I want to be alive when you gorge my heart Oh please take me, my widow lady With eight skinny legs like a bony hand Just like the prey in your sticky little nest Wrapped in sexy silk Tonight’s the night, says the eight-eyed face While I’m wrapped in sexy silk Look into my eyes when the fang goes through My heart must be consumed Ooh la la, uh uh la la Take me in like you want to Ooh la la, uh uh la la Take me in, it’s what you do
11.
Chasing Bats 03:45
If it’s not a dream, then I’m freaking out These lips are stained crimson and my skin is pale like a clown I fell into chemicals, my pigment was rearranged You made us a madman and I’m trapped inside our brain You’re killing for nothing now with a chilling laugh I'm telling you that I’m coming back Living in dreams, a good guy’s here past the Glasgow smile I’m in your subconscious, like the Red Hood’s in exile But soon I’m gonna get away You’re wasting your time, chasing bats just to try and look mean But overall, you’re just Ted Bundy with a stand-up routine I can’t forget Jeanie’s death, though it’s been years Got caught by the dark night, then in a moment I disappeared But now you’re the CEO and I’m a stooge I'm telling you that I’m breaking loose Living in dreams, a good guys here past the Glasgow smile I’m in your subconscious, like the Red Hood’s in exile But soon I’m gonna get away
12.
Imagination fuels the dancing, oh you know the way I bake inside my cell on a good day, a good day I feel myself coming up to a new beginning on a snowy day They say I’m not leavin’ but you know I’m gay Two lights, ten years I’m making Christmas time this year I try to bounce around my head Until you cry a stream of cheer Two whips, two deers I’m making Christmas time this year While chopping all the trees I see the red that drowns away the fear Impractical, I see you swinging, on a bale of hay I feel the lumps of coal on a good sleigh, a good slay I feel myself making lists of the naughty children on a snowy day I crack a nut while I’m calling for Mr. J Two lights, ten years I’m making Christmas time this year I tie the balls around my head Until you cry a stream of cheer Two whips, two deers I’m making Christmas time this year While chopping all the trees I see the red that drowns away the fear
13.
There’s this ever-present itching addiction in me The only thing that stops the twitching is sickening to see Watch the fleeting life flooding from their eyes I am horrified by my crimes This brain’s as brilliant as it is deranged If it can’t be tamed, there’s one other way I’ll build a machine to save the masses from me It travels in time to wash away my sin I built a machine to save ‘em from me I’ll travel in time to find the tortured kid who grew into my skin Ending it before it can begin Stepping through the smoking time pod, oh my god, I’m here Haven’t seen the place in so long, it’s been gone for years Staring breathless, stunned, and amazed Stands the innocent me of eight I’m clutching the knife, I think we’re ready to die Then suddenly dad stumbles in on us I’m clutching the knife, I’m ready to die Then suddenly dad runs in with a gun, shoots to save his son Traumatized, the kid starts to go numb There’s this ever-present itching addiction in me
14.
Brain Matter 03:58
As a cell I served the basis for a conscious life anew From inside I’m reaching out to set controls just right for you Am I you? Or are you me? Who’s whose? Do you think? Your body’s just the host? Do I think? What’s a name when it’s named by the one who bears? I think therefore I am the brain Something else besides your head commands itself to be your head From commands from my first cell with all instructions in a thread Am I you? Or are you me? Who’s whose? Do you think? Your body’s just the host? Do I think? What’s a name when it’s named by the one who bears? I think therefore I am the brain Mind over you You’re me Do you think? Your body’s just the host? Do I think? What’s a name when it’s named by the one who bears? I think therefore I am the brain

Alien Ocean 02:53
Something had died and its shell floated by at the pier And like a headphone made of bone, I put it to my ear The ocean was played in an audio wave like some otherworldly, terrible song But then later at night, back at home, I retried and I heard it still when the ocean was gone As it called to me, somehow I knew it was not from this galaxy Alien Ocean, a wave that could drown Alien Ocean, hear the sound Alien Ocean, alarmingly loud Panicked and stunned, had to warn every one of the shell They called me insane, that’s okay, I can save Earth myself Now I’m watching my back, need a plan of attack, if you think I’ll go quietly then think again So just watch what you say near a lake or a bay, cause those neon monsters are all listening in Telepathically, shining their probes for the day that they land for me Alien Ocean, a wave that could drown Alien Ocean, hear the sound Alien Ocean, alarmingly loud
16.
Sharktopus 03:40
Deep under the ocean lives some kind of creature Just under our sailboat, waiting to strike And darling, you said that true love’s on the inside Well, soon you might see those insides outside Run from the ocean to the seashore Run from the seashore to the city Run from the city, but it’s no use Run till the sharktopus makes you into seafood Think you can hide, well, it’ll find you Think that you’re safe, well, it’ll watch you Girl, I don’t think I can defend you When we become the next ones on the menu My feelings are sinking, just like our surroundings My heart’s not just yours now, but hey I tried The monster emerges, waves pounding our sailboat Well, guess this looks like the last wave, goodbye Run from the ocean to the seashore Run from the seashore to the city Run from the city, but it’s no use Run till the sharktopus makes you into seafood Think you can hide, well, it’ll find you Think that you’re safe, well, it’ll watch you Girl, I don’t think I can defend you When we become the next ones on the menu Run from the ocean to the seashore Run from the seashore to the city Run from the city, but it’s no use Run till the sharktopus makes you into seafood Think you can hide and I will hold you Think that you’re safe and I’ll console you Girl, I will always be there with you Cause we’ve become the next ones on the menu

You make me feel like a natural woman You make me feel like a hurricane You make me feel like a natural woman I’m a damsel in distress and I’m calling your name You make me feel like a queen A perfect Disney princess dream When I’m with you I don’t know what is even real And want more cavewomen to know it, so I scream You make me feel like a natural woman You make me feel like a hurricane You make me feel like a natural woman I’m a damsel in distress and I’m calling your name You make me feel like a queen A perfect Disney princess dream When I’m with you I don’t know what is even real And want more cavewomen to know it, so I scream I’ve never felt like such a woman before I’m all yours, so open me up and explore You make me feel like a natural woman You make me feel like a hurricane You make me feel like a natural woman I’m a damsel in distress and I’m calling your name
19.
I’m not expecting your sympathy Gloating may be more appropriate, I hate irony I stole your spotlight, now they stole it from me If you rise, sooner or later you’ll fall I fell so hard and you loved it Looking at the situation, neither of us won overall I erased your dreams, now the same’s done to me Cause love is never something that lasts They shower with fame, then they bury the name Of old fads Maybe once I’d have looked down my nose And asked you how it felt to fade to nothing like a discarded ghost But attention’s an adrenalin dose The more you get the more that you crave We reminisce and play checkers But deep inside we both resent the other person’s dumb, stupid face I erased his dreams, just like you did to me And then they feared the shadow I cast They worship your steps, then they quickly forget The old, fat, and despised have the past in their eyes Celebrity’s like an assembly line Knocked to the side by the hot, younger guy Erased, debased, defaced, replaced Until we don’t leave a trace Now that our fifteen have ended We watch as our replacements are replaced and take the bench by our side I erased your dreams, now the cycle repeats I’m smirking as your merch fills the trash They hand you a sign that says ‘relic of time’ AKA old fad

The Agenda 03:27
Agenda’s coming for you now Agenda’s coming for you now Passion, burning, when they slowly… Force you to become a cow Cows don’t feel cause they’re not humans But take human rights For real, though, who let them think? Just how dare they think they’re part of all? Push and make them fall Cows are wanting to be dads Cows are wanting to be dads Who said they could take that from us? There’s a book that says that’s bad Cows don’t feel cause they’re not humans But take human rights For real, though, who let them think? Just how dare they think they’re part of all? Push and make them fall Agenda’s coming for you now Agenda’s coming for you now Passion, burning, when they slowly… Force you to become a cow Cows don’t feel cause they’re not humans But take human rights For real, though, who let them think? Just how dare they think they’re part of all? Push and make them fall

Take this unlucky bloke Take him to get his scrawny neck choked Hang him up on a rope Or better yet, slice it off for the folks CHOMPCHOMPCHOMP Says the guillotine, till it's full It gets fed twice a week On killers and fools A rusty blade, a bloody serenade I think that I smell a witch She's working for the devil, so let's throw the switch A headless body will twitch It's good entertainment for all the kids CHOMPCHOMPCHOMP Says the guillotine, till it's full It gets fed twice a week On killers and fools A rusty blade, a bloody serenade Soon you'll be lying dead All the people's shoes are covered in red You made it, now lie in your bed Every twice a week, come get some head CHOMPCHOMPCHOMP Says the guillotine, till it's full It gets fed twice a week On killers and fools A rusty blade, a bloody serenade
22.
Time stands still this time of night You’re not here, but down the road, there’s love in sight From you, it floats downstream in my mind To guide me as I’m floating freely Peacefully and time is an illusion Hey, reach out to me Through space-time, if you can And then bring me to a galaxy Where you share the sea of consciousness with me
