Track Name: Molly's Got Mono in the Kitchen
Molly’s got mono in the kitchen
I can’t tell you what she’s missin’
Everybody’s scratching and itchin’
From all the boys that shes kissin’

Molly’s got mono in the kitchen,
She keeps coughing and sneezin’
Everybody’s moaning and bitchin’
But then again, they’ve got a good reason

Although my symptoms don’t seem bad,
Everyone is getting mad
Hoping I don’t touch things
That they do.
But once I start feeling well
And rise from this lysogenic hell
I’ll go back to the kitchen
Where I’m free.

Molly’s got mono in the kitchen,
But no one there is really listenin’
It’s cause of all the food that she’s fistin’
That everybody is booin’ and hissin’

Molly’s got mono in the kitchen,
She keeps coughin’ and sneezin’
But there is only one reason
It’s all those boys that she’s pleasin’

Although my symptoms don’t seem bad,
Everyone is getting mad
Hoping I don’t touch things
That they do.
But once I start feeling well
And rise from this lysogenic hell
I’ll go back to the kitchen
Where I’m free.
Track Name: Damp as the Dew
Damp, damp as the dew,
The void the surrounds,
Fogging my view.

Two, lights shining through.
The guise of unknown,
We’re driving into.

We, hover above,
The space the entwines,
Tight like a glove.

Damp, damp as the dew,
The void the surrounds,
Fogging my view.

Two, lights shining through.
The guise of unknown,
We’re driving into.

We, hover above,
The space the entwines,
Tight like a glove.
Track Name: Note From Dad
I just got a note from Dad,
Worst damn father that a kid could have.
He stepped out a few years ago,
Said he’d come back but wouldn’t you know.

I just got a note from Dad,
Left me with the bill from the dinner he had.
He didn’t talk much but when he did,
It was all about him and his other four kids.

He knew me well but not well enough,
Knowing my name sure most have been tough.
I just got a note from Dad,
Looks like we weren’t the real kids that he thought he had.

Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad (x4)

He knew me well but not well enough,
Knowing my name sure most have been tough.
I just got a note from Dad,
Looks like we weren’t the real kids that he thought he had.
Track Name: Red
I knew you long ago,
And we meet again today.
But how the years have
Whittled you away.

I look at you now and
I can’t help but feel
Your sultry seduction
And I don’t know if it’s real

As I look into
Your deep sullen eyes
All I can see,
Are your constant lies.

Well you are a siren
A taker of souls
Who used to love
Or at least so I’m told.
Track Name: Melt
Melt
The disappointing moments
of your day,
The searing painful headlines
on display,
the ones that leave you
with nothing left to say

Sad
to see these old things sit
and go to waste,
so be sure to let the dogs
just get a taste
but you better tag them
just in case

So Melt away your day

Time
won’t heal up all your wounds
just like they say
It ways you down until you feel
you have to pray
but by that time your future
will turn gray

Change
Is something that you know was made
to scare you
just close your eyes and accept
what it has come to
and when you wake you’ll know
just what to do

Melt away your day
Track Name: Purée of Scorched Tomatoes
Slowly and surely I travel through space
I’ll soon be the ruler of the whole human race

Rhyadah they call me as I storm through the land
Destroying all life and the trees where they stand

I must not be seen but still seem quite large
Sir Lancaster of Claric is who I will put in charge

Total control is the plan that I chase
Once that is done then I will show my face

My thoughts are like wind as I return to sand
Although I could crush you in the palm of my hand.

But noble and worthy I will sit on my throne
Until my minion applaud as I’m stripped from the bone.
Track Name: Rhyadah
There was a town long ago that is now in shambles
A monster came night and day it was more than they could handle
Buildings crashed and buildings fell they would all have to scramble
But then one day a boy arose and said that he would fight her

He wanted fame
To restore the family name
And to win the hand of
The most beautiful dame

So he went toe to toe
With the beast on that day
Hoping the monster
He’d be able to go slay
But he was oh so wrong

When the beast saw they boy
She cried big tears of joy
Knowing the fight would not
Last long into the night
The beast was ready to fight

Beaten and thrown around
The boy was on the ground
He knew that he would not
Have more then one last shot
To end this once and for all

So with sword and shield in hand
The boy made his big stand
Hurling his blade like a dart
Through the monsters heart

He had his mission complete
As they both lay in the street
And the village gathered round and tossed
Roses at their feet
