about

One of my biggest irrational fears is of transformation, that is, of somehow becoming something other than what I am, such as a werewolf or one of those gas mask zombies from Doctor Who. This fear keeps me awake at night more often than the fear of being killed. Of course, this fear is irrational because you can be nothing worse than a human being. We are a species cursed with thought, a species that is brought into life to experience a beautiful, temporary innocence before we all inevitably lose our minds at the mercy of our hormones. Did any of us really think constant suicidal ideation was what they meant when they said we would start to change soon? Humans cannot be the dominant species on the planet because they are so intrinsically flawed. One would be better off as a cat. No cat was ever depressed, because cats cannot think. The role of humans may as well only be to provide for the domesticated and blissfully dumb animals. The songs on this album deal with depression, in how it can be used to destroy an individual both internally and externally. They talk about a society in which the actions of those under the influence of drugs have no discernible behavioral differences to those not, a society in which not only depression destroys you, but in which the bigoted also physically destroy you, a society in which there is no viable way to succeed because all of the correct answers are grayed out, a society in which more is expected of an individual than should be, a society in which a girl can contemplate suicide because she didn't make prom queen. This profoundly sick society is ours. It may sound like I'm trying to spread my pearls of wisdom here, but don't worry, I fully recognize that this is quite stupid. I also recognize that this album and its related work only showcase the dark side of humanity. Will the next album perhaps exemplify what good and beauty there is in life? That all depends on if the antidepressants ever start working.

Track Name: A Cupcake In My Head
Hatkirby, I've got Compiz now

Girl Without Slipper said the magpie had gone, instead
Oh oh
There was a cupcake in my head.
We ate a brick on a subway train,
She sang my phone ring tone
She ate my ham and then she cleaned the stain!

Ya, I sing, my moose is a her!
Ya, I sing, my moose is a her!
Ya, I sing, my moose is a her!

Oh oh
There was a cupcake in my head.
Oh-hhhh

Ya, I sing, my moose is a her!
Ya, I sing, my moose is a her!
Ya, I sing, my moose is a her!

One student, one student, one
Work our best

Track Name: These Days
This is not just a song
This is not just a song

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

These nights I threw every piece into a fire
Wondering where this cake is
It feels like we're out of beta
And it's only breaking my folding chair
'Cause if my feet are buried in the sand means being alone
And never knowing when there's a breeze
Then I guess I'm better off facing time again in Riker's Island

But I can't move on
'Cause that means slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup
Slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to Paris
'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting our time in Paris
So I keep on coming, keep coming
I keep coming back back back back

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

My friends say "Like my status if you're a pimp!
And stop crying like a baby!"
They tell me that I'm out of my mouthwash
But I know that what we both share is shit on your head
And I've been willing to go streaking in the park with pink flamingos in the pool
'Cause if being with you means being screwed
And never knowing when you're screwed
Then I guess I'm better off screwed

But I can't move on
'Cause that means chasing me all over town
Chasing me all over town
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to heaven
'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting I've already been to heaven
So I keep on coming, keep coming
I keep coming back back back back

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

Drop it
Yo, Jimmy Neutron was just nineteen
When he created a strange machine
His parents were dead, he lived in Paris
Yeah, he lived in Paris
I guess you could say it was kind of crazy
I guess you could say it was kind of cra-cra-crazy
But I left gum in my mouth overnight, yeah
I left gum in my mouth overnight
But I left gum in my mouth overnight, yeah
I left gum in my mouth overnight

Back (x16)

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same

Track Name: Poland
Well, I don't know much, but I know this for certain

P-p-p-p-poland likes to d-d-d-d-dress in skirts
P-p-p-p-poland likes to d-d-d-d-dress in skirts
P-p-p-p-poland likes to d-d-d-d-dress in skirts
P-p-p-p-poland likes to d-d-d-d-dress in skirts

Oh my god, oh oh oh my god god oh my god god oh oh oh my god god

Germany, stop invading me
G-g-germany, stop invading me
Germany, stop invading me
G-g-germany, stop invading me
Germany, stop invading me
G-g-germany, stop invading me
Oh, oh my god god

When I was five years old, my mother woke me up and said
Get out of the house, Germany's invading yo!
I screamed like a berbit and threw up my crickeys
But it was nearly too late from the dancing pole state
Oh Germany, oh oh Germany
Germany don't you like to wear skirts sometimes?
Oh my god, oh oh my god
Germany doesn't like to wear skirts at all

Germany, stop invading me
G-g-germany, stop invading me
Germany, stop invading me
G-g-germany, stop invading me
Germany, stop invading me
G-g-germany, stop invading me
Oh, oh my god god
Oh, oh my god god
Oh, oh my god god

Stop touching me there
Track Name: Paraphylaxis
National anthem while I am standing
Over your body, hold you like a python
And you can't keep your hands off
Me or your pants on
See what you've done to me
King of Chevron
(x3)

On occasion, I’ve had the time to think
Of life and love in someone else’s skin
There is a girl, she lives down the street
And everything she does, she does for him
She whispers his name as she wanders down the street
And wonders out loud whether he will answer back
She can count the times on a hand with no digits
And the love that she wastes, she can put it on a plaque

National anthem
National anthem
National anthem
Do you think I'm pretty?

National anthem while I am standing
Over your body, hold you like a python
And you can't keep your hands off
Me or your pants on
See what you've done to me
King of Chevron

Axis
It’s an axis
It can bent and can twist at your feet
It’s an axis
Paraphylaxis
And it can stone and destroy the street
All you’ve known
And all you love
And that boy that you see time to time
He’s not here
She’s not there
And it’s all down to earth, lemon lime

It's a boy they cry as they shower her in love
And the years that have passed, they have taught the boy to know
If you want something, you can take it
If she gives you a heart, you can break it
For some, you know, it doesn't take a minute
And my love has clearly seen that way
I watch her as the peanuts cross her mouth
And I melt away like New Years Day

Do you think I'm pretty?

National anthem
Crying
Do you think I'm pretty?
National anthem
New Years Day

Track Name: The Breakfast Professionals
I used to be happy
But now he's alright
Since eating Serios
I've been boring all night
Boring all night
Boring all night
Boring all night
Boring all night
Boring all night
Boring all night

I woke up in the morning, feeling alright
But what to eat for breakfast?
It's the most important meal of the day, you know
So you gotta eat something for breakfast!
I looked in the cabinet, there was nothing there!
I was so disappointed, but then I was like
Oh my god
I can go online shopping!
Or better yet
I can have my slaves go get me some
Cereal
Some cereal
Cereal

But what to eat?
I don't know!
Then I thought
Serios!
Serios!
Serios are the best cereal around
Yeah!

I used to be happy
But now I'm alright
Since eating Serios
I've been boring all night!

Track Name: Skinny Dipping 4 Love
Profanity, profanity, the word I say when people swear at me!

In fact, there's the distinct possibility that by the end of the day, we'll all be going to hell

Super Barbie country club
Lookin' at us
Katy Perry, super jelly
Taylor Lautner's abs
Going-going-going to hell
Going-going-going to hell

We go running through the dark
And end up on a bus
No idea where it might go
We bring good times with us
Going-going-going to hell
Going-going-going to hell

Supermarket carousel
Gladiator bust
If at the end our clothes are on
Then we didn't have fun
Going-going-going to hell
Going-going-going to hell

Five hundred things to do
And not a moment to spare
If my bikini's on fire
It only means I've won!

Find a pool pool pool pool pool
And let us swim swim swim swim swim
We're skinny dipping di-di-di-dipping for love!
Don't need no money
Get off me, honey
When you're as cool as me
You don't have to share
Find a pool
And let the good times begin

4AM, police arrive
And shut the party down
"Ma'am, go put your pants on now"
I kick him in the nuts
Going-going-going to hell
Going-going-going to hell

Run outside into the street
Hand in hand with Brett
Make out by the dark fire
Singed my hair so bad
Going-going-going to hell
Going-going-going to hell

Next morning, when I wake up
Pregnancy test
Brett won't call me anymore
Don't need him anyway
Going-going-going to hell
Going-going-going to hell

Five hundred things to do
And not a moment to spare
If my bikini's on fire
It only means I've won!

Find a pool pool pool pool pool
And let us swim swim swim swim swim
We're skinny dipping di-di-di-dipping for love!
Don't need no money
Get off me, honey
When you're as cool as me
You don't have to share
Find a pool
And let the good times begin

Running through the streets
Screaming like a baby
Cutting my hair right off
Forgetting my name
It's hysteria, it's Nigeria
I don't even know what that means
I can't even remember where I live
I can't even remember his name
Though, really, do I actually care?

Find a pool pool pool pool pool
And let us swim swim swim swim swim
We're skinny dipping di-di-di-dipping for love!
Don't need no money
Get off me, honey
When you're as cool as me
You don't have to share
Find a pool
And let the good times begin

The thing is, if I'm so popular
Why doesn't anybody like me?
Track Name: Hook Turn
You took a hook turn
You took a hook turn

I lost my soul in the cherrywood forest, oh
Running with the girls and screaming “Oh no!”
If you can find it, you can take it home with you
‘Cause where I’m going, I won’t need it at all
Take a picture if you want this moment to last
But the picture won’t represent the world at all
All you get is a ruse, a state of mind
Running with the souls of the people you keep out of mind
Take a look closer, you can see it in their eyes
There’s a menacing grimace to the way that they smile
And when they come into your house late at night
And steal everything that you ever held dear
You’ll only begin to realize then
What a lie your whole life has been
You’ve been running with them the entire time
You’ve been running with them the entire time
You’ve been running with them the entire time
You’ve been running with them the entire time

You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
(x2)

In the cherrywood forest, sleeping under trees
When you screamed “oh no,” they screamed “yes!”
When they stabbed a tree, you cackled a laugh
And down goes another, as you step over the body
There’s not even time for a moment of peace
As the willows descend on his overt smile
And never again will you see those eyes
They say that love is a river, you can drown
They say that love is a hotel where everyone has died
But I’m running through the cherrywood forest
And I’ve lost everything that I ever held dear
So as they smile, as they pick up his bones
Just remember that soon, soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you

You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
(x2)

There's a fork in the road (x4)
What do we do? (x4)
What do we do? (Sing it!)
What do we do?
What do we do? (Sing it!)
What do we do?
What do we do? (Sing it!)
What do we do?
Sing it! (x10)

You took a hook turn

Never ever ever call Thread.stop

Derivative of x plus 1 over x
Eighteen sixty five by nine
Is one minus 1865 by 9x squared
Truth is often tough to hear
But sometimes, you just gotta let it out
This is me, rapping badly
For your pleasure and discomfort
Now listen up, 'cause I got a story to tell, but
You won't hear it

I like milkshakes for breakfast
Throw pillows on the floor
Throw chairs out the window
Take rice cakes off the floor

What the hell is this?
Do you expect me to clean up after you?
Get a job!
But Mom, I got a lot of stuff to do
Last night's Science homework
Still on the floor from the milkshake I left outside
Now it's rotten
Do I look like I care about that crap?
Now go clean your room!
But Mom!
But nothing!
But Mom!
