Track Name: Ghosts of the Seashell Wars
Seashells, seashells
Seize them from the shore
Seashells, seashells
Keep them safe in store

See her?
Feed her seashells

More & more & more & more & more
More & more we must have more & more
More & more & more & more

Send us to the ocean
We'll come back
With treasures on our backs
Heavy, heavy packs

More & more & more & more
More & more & more & more
What did we send you there for?

Another campaign
Another campaign
Another campaign
Is winding down

Winding down
A blinding crown has gone to ground
Winding down with a grinding sound
And we're all caught in the afterspray

Seashells, seashells
See, they look the same
As the day we came
Track Name: Soon
Soon
We'll find you a home
Someplace where they
All understand you
And

Soon
We'll find you a friend
Someone who will
Always glad hand you
And misunderstand you
The way that you want them to
You want to, don't you
Want to, don't you?

Soon
We'll tow you away
You'll go on a
Day trip to Dayton
Where everyone's waiting
For you or someobody like you
Don't you want to
Don' you want to go?
Track Name: All the Time
ALL THE TIME

I work my fingers to the bone
But still she won't leave it alone
From dusk til dawn I'm at the lake
But still she thinks that I'm some rambling rake

You see that all the time
You know you see it all the time
You know you see it
You know you see it

The Generalissimo's no fake
When he picks up steam we all eat steak
And my Maria's a lovely lamb
She doesn't know who the fuck I am

You see that all the time
You know you see it all the time
You know you see it
You know you see it

But have you seen the look the look the get back?
Have you read the book the book the jet black?
Have you seen the flies among the saints?
Among the saints among the saints

You see that all the time
You know you see it all the time
You know you see it
You know you see it
Track Name: Dear New Unit
Dear new unit
You are ahead of me in the line
Compliant in drop-down menu
You are awkward to perceive
Dear new unit
You are ahead of me in the vine

Always object relations must synchronize
Always objects relate
All agree to conform checks compliances
Must not herd spinning dishes

Red green memory
Likely protocol not goodbye
Please make access
Without function forced outside

Always object relations must synchronize
Always objects relate
Always please to conform checks compliances
Must now herd spinning dishes

Red green memory
Likely protocol not goodbye
Please make access
Without function forced outside
Track Name: Wrong
Oh baby, you're so beautifully wrong
I had to put you in a song
Where else would you belong?

Oh baby, I can see what people mean
When they say you should be seen
Only on the giant screen

Don't mind me if I survive
Leaching light that leaks from the hive
Staggering in the turbulent air
You're my omnivore on a mission
Swallowing starlets and politicians
Spewing out your dust so fine and rare

Oh baby, you're so beautifully wrong
But without you I got no song
I guess you knew that all along

Find me in your surging train
A sea of arms that reach in vain
Destiny swirling down a drain
I won't be ashamed to stare
I will fight to find my chair
I got nothing to lose, got nothing to hide

Oh baby, I can feel you in the air
Feeding on my stare
Almost as if you're really there
Track Name: Mr. Mitochondrion
He’s the powerhouse of the cell – Mr. Mitochondrion
He empowers us and he does it well – Mr. Mitochondrion

I need my ATP
It’s fundamental to me
I can’t do nothing without it
That’s why I’m talking about it

He’s the powerhouse of the cell – Mr. Mitochondrion
He empowers us and he does it well – Mr. Mitochondrion

Ain’t got no backup plan
Ain’t got no standby man
Got just one place to go
For stuff that makes me go

"Adenosine triphosphate, the very building block of human cellular..."

(Just google it.)

He’s the powerhouse of the cell – Mr. Mitochondrion
He empowers us and he does it well – Mr. Mitochondrion

Could be a Negro Jew
Could be from Timbuktu
Don't care how high you fly
Just ain’t no getting’ by
Without your own supply
Track Name: C Is the Chord of Easter (Seize the Chord of Easter)
"C" is the chord of Easter
Hopping down the bunny trail
In my fluffy bunny suit
And my fuzzy bunny tail

"C" is the chord of Easter
Where's the hallelujah egg?
Hopping down the bunny trail
In my fluffy bunny tail

Down the rabbit hole I go
Down the rabbit hole I go

"C" is the chord of Easter
Decorating orange trees
Lifting up the cover slats
Keep away the honey bees

"C" is the chord of Easter
Don't you know I'm oh so late
Hopping down the bunny trail
In my fluffy bunny tail

Down the rabbit hole I go
Down the rabbit hole I go
I go down down down down
Down down down down down down down
Down down down down down down down down

Seize the chord of Easter
Before it seizes you baby
Take not Easter lightly
For it hath pagan roots
Human sacrifice
And not just painted eggs
If it was just painted eggs
Those would be some dangerous eggs

Down the rabbit hole you go
Falling back through history
You go down down down down down down down
Down down down down down down down
Down down down down down down down down
Down down down down...
Track Name: Light Up My Way
What I thought was dry land
Was just the deck of the ship
I looked down at my hands
With a white knuckle grip

The whitecaps rise up
And reach for the sky
The water is all
That's between you and I

Light up my way
Baby I’ve been
Looking for you everywhere
I was at bay
Let me sail into your arms

When the wind tore you away
I crashed on the rocks
And I slept on the shore
But I never changed the locks

The shadows drew down
I forgot how to talk
But after a while
I began to walk

Light up my way
Baby I’ve been
Looking for you everywhere
I was at bay
Let me sail

Light up my way
Baby I’ve been
Looking for you everywhere
I was at bay
C'mon let me sail
Track Name: The Ferris Wheel
Oh the Ferris Wheel
You don't know what you've missed
'Til you hear that groaning steel
And you clench your fist

Oh the man at the switch
I'm sure he's fine
He's got a tattoo of a witch
He's only done this a thousand times

Oh the girls on the ground
They look so small
How could they ever cacth me should I
Happened to fall

Oh the Ferris Wheel
Always comes around
To pick you up in arms of steel
And set you right back down
