Track Name: The Mantra
You're not alone
You're not alone
You've got your Sims
You've got your phone

You're in the right place
You're in the right place
Please ignore that yearning
Keep believing it will go away

(chorus follows)

Hey you
I got you right here
I'll split in two
Hey dear
I'll love you backwards
I'll take the pain
Then the laughter
Hey you
I got you right here
I'll split in two

You take what needs takin'
And I'll head to the takin' place
I comb my hair just right
And command the night give way
I seen you been ridin' steady
All the girls got their eye on you
And lately I've been feelin' jelly
I'd be lyin' if it wasn't true
So much for the dotin' daughters
You're the cutest in all the state
Don't care 'bout the way they're starin'
Cause stars flowin' in your veins

(chorus)

You're not going under
Not going under
You've got your things
You've got your tumblr

You are fulfilled
You are fulfilled
Please ignore that yearning
Keep believing it will go away
Track Name: Goodnight From Channel 2
Heading steady
To see it through
Dusty boots and trigger troops out in the blue

Heading steady
Through Karakum
Misty winds, they slowly spin away from you

Dipped in hydracodone
Feelin' far gone
Kissed by the heart of the sun
I'll never grow old
This is goodnight from channel 2
Be sure to turn off the signal when you're through

Goodnight from channel 2
We will remember you
Goodnight from channel 2

Now I've been there
Save your breath nobody really cares
Feelin' heady
Through Karakum
Like I got tripped up
And split up
But forever I will race on
Forever I will race on
Died thinking she was the one

Dipped in hydracodone
Feelin' far gone
Kissed by the heart of the sun
I'll never grow old
This is goodnight from channel 2
Be sure to turn off the signal when you're through

Goodnight from channel 2
We will remember you
Goodnight from channel 2

Goodnight from channel 2
Please write back when you've made it through
Goodnight from channel 2
Track Name: Tomatoes
I got a spider
I got tomatoes
I got a re-ward for greening the gables
I got a black square that's glued to my eyelids
Would be poor
For just that

Sit on a fan blade
While counting to two
You think I'd be worried but
I'm pretty aloof
Science will break down
But what can I do
Would I do more
For just that

(chorus follows)

Put my face on your windshield
I need to relax
Why would I do more
For just that
Hello burglar, yah come on in
Waited a while
We're about to begin
Top of the stairway
Just out of view
Soakin up light beams
and covered in goo
Sincere as a sunbeam when I'm lookin at you
Shapes line up neatly
I'm feelin' uniquely
You're never gonna beat me
Please please me

If I'm a tomato
can I sing too?
You can cut off my branches
And fill my with glue
Can put me on ice cream
and tint it all blue
I hope that they like me
I hope that they do

You can find me at midnight
Riding a tombstone
Graveyard keeper still thinks
That I'm too slow
You can try to spot me
But ya need special glasses
Some might get lonely
But I aint looked back yet

(chorus)

This day was was wasted
before it begin
Aint it just like time
to slip through your hand
Kid be a rockstar
For 10,000 grand
But I got tomatoes
I think I'll be just fine
Track Name: Reward
(chorus follows)

I got a reward
For least achieved
Ya look at me
I'm nintendo 64
Plug me in and remember me

Mom's callin dinner
Cats in your ear
Still feelin nervous
But I got nothing to fear

Let me bookmark this feeling
I can feel it tonight
I'ma mail you my paycheck
For 685

(chorus)

Yeah I'm your book bag
So bring me to school
Still checkin for look backs
I'm still feelin cool

I think there's a printer
In my papa's garage
Think he's printing off people
While avoiding my mom

(chorus)

You're a mystery mrs
I can tell by your charm
I'll get you some lilies
We can live by a barn
I'll by turning the corner
I'll walk through the door
I'm not sad
I just thought there'd be more
Track Name: Crying Rice
Feel it comin'
Comin for me
Roly poly
And brilliant green

Feel it comin'
Comin for you
Roly poly
And brilliant blue

His eyes are shinin
Shinin for me
Shine on baby I'm
Ready to see

Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-da
Oh please god don't let me down

Come on baby
I'm a movin machine
Smokeless wonder
Just got a degree

Been movin slowly
Been playing dead

One bite of the apple
and I'll be grovin instead

Feel it comin
Out of the dark
Roly poly
And radiant spark

Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-da
Oh please god don't let me down

Let's call to order
Let's set it in line
Been shiftin quickly
You're as sweet as a lime

Where I'm headed
Baby count to three

One step from the confine
Is all it takes to be free

Feel it comin
Over the hill
Roly poly
And vermillion thrill

Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-da
Oh please god don't let me down (x 2)

I'm the sleepy warrior
Je suis l'homme en feu
Don't fuck around
But only afternoon

Cannot meet up
I got nothing to do

One peek through the blindfold
Is all it takes to be true

I can feel it comin
Comin for me
Swirlin' switchboard
And brilliant green

Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-da
Oh please god don't let me down
Track Name: Lorelei
(chorus follows)

Lorelei
I don't want to see you cry
When I fly by

Lorelei
Step up to the indigo
A time gone by

Lorelei
I don't see you cry
When I fly by

Lorelei
I see a hole in your icy eye
I see a flash when the stakes are high
Will you stand up to my fiery fight
I'd like to see you try

(chorus)

Lorelei
Beware Beware
I'm your frozen fire
Take care Take care
You're a golden sprite
Will you stand up to my fiery fight
I'd like to see you try

(chorus)
Track Name: Forest Dance
How did I get here
Surrounded by this here
Where is my greenery?
Where is my ginger tree?

Run the knotted way
Run tell dot and dye
Tell them I've gone on
Tell them not to cry

Should I run into flames
Should I happen to fall
Let the forrest dance
Let it be a ball
Should my senses fail
Should the ether come unveiled
Let the forest dance
Let the valley inhale
Should I be not here
Should the valley weep its tears
Let the forrest dance
Let me disappear

I will close my eyes
Dream of muffin pies
It was not to be
It was not to be

There's a hole in me
Oh help me father tree
Should my voice fly on
This is what I would say

Let me not be put to shame
Let me not fade away
If it's not to be
Let the forrest sway

See all I've come upon
With an electric eye
Let the forest dance
Through the by and by

Let me not be rich or poor
Let me not wash ashore
If it's not to be
Let the forrest roar

Should I not arise
Dance with Dot and Dye
There's no hole in me
I think that I've gone on

Let me not forget the pie
Let me not be unwise
Let the forest dance
So that I can rise

See all I've come upon
With an electric eye
Let the forest dance
Through the by and by

Let me not be put to shame
Let me not fade away
If it's not to be
Let the forest sway
Track Name: Katzenjammer Kool
My adolescence
Is made of leather
Oh the charm in knowing it wont last forever

I see your luster
I raise your sweater
oh the charm in calling that sort of maneouver

And what's the worry?
There ain't no crisis
And we'll be katzenjammer koolin when you find us
x2

AHHHHS (inspirational, such wow)

She said
Go with the flow
Go with the flow
That's the sort of shit you find that nobody knows

I'm already big now
And everyone knows
That's the sort of shit that gets you out of control

Like telling the ground
You forgot how to grow
Measure after measure
I admit it's getting better

And what's the worry?
There ain't no crisis
And we'll be katzenjammer koolin when you find us
x2

AHHHHS (inspirational, such wow)
Track Name: Cum Hear the Band
Billy's called he's got the van
Ian's got a set of drums
And I borrowed this old guitar
We're hopin someday we'll all go far
Maybe we'll write a tune
Get to ride in a limousine
See our picture in a magazine
So won't you be there?

(chorus follows)

So come hear the band on friday night
Whoaa-ooo-yeah
So come hear the band it'll be alright
And baby it's you that's got me burning inside
So come hear the band it'll be alright

It'll be alright (x3)

Practiced hard
To get it on
Working to get it strong
Now I just want you to hear
But it wont work if you're not there
So please don't take too long
See I'm waiting with a song
So won't you please be there
Wont you be there?

(chorus)

It'll be alright (x3)
