Sylvia 04:29
Sylvia What a strange few weeks it’s been Especially since you fell into that New dimension How or what where why and when Are you? Do you look the same Or have you melted into Interstellar goo? CHORUS Now you’re falling through the curtains of space time and all that stuff I can’t imagine what you’re going through It must be tough Poor Sylvia Don’t think you’ll ever be the same Sylvia Are you now an all seeing universal brain? And if you are Does that mean you always were? Well now I hope you have the answers to it all And if not then Hopefully being stretched like that Will make you tall CHORUS How did this wormhole happen Was it meant for me? You know I think there’s something I’ve not told you How did I forget to mention I’m not from here By that I mean many Light years away Sylvia Do you think that maybe I could come join you? I don’t know where But it’s what I want to do Sometimes I just feel like this planets not my place And I know there’s room up there Or else they Wouldn’t call it space CHORUS

Hold me and my many mouths Each one dumb as the last Seventeen beautiful angles Each one, sharp as the last Dance with me, ooh Move like me, ooh Do this dance, ooh Move like me, ooh And there are so many tomorrows Each one bleak as the last Seventeen terrible secrets You’re the first I am weightless You’re the last Dance with me, ooh Move like me, ooh Nobody like you Nobody like you

Mime Factory 03:24
CHORUS Oh, Bruce, I’m freakin’ out I’m so sorry, I’m freakin’ out Oh, Bruce, I’m freakin’ out I’m so sorry, I’m freakin’ out So let’s wait and wait to see How my progress goes so slowly Align mind and focus chi And watch me drag So give me time and give me sleep Give me promises to keep So deep within the heaps of stuff in my car CHORUS Two times turn into three Into a trend you’ll start to see But don’t worry It’s never enough for now And somewhere across the sea They’re gonna make a mime just for me In a mime factory Replace me while I sleep And with a smooth quiet terror Why don’t you meet me on the corner Of Stoddard And what the fuck street is this?

I’m out of sight I’m out of mind If you can’t find me baby, I don’t have the time Where did it go? I don’t know If it makes you sad then Put on a different show Cuz’ we’re all still creatures too You know it’s true Don’t think there’s anything that you can do A job’s a job But a life’s a life You’ve gotta find the balance to make things alright Build up to break Love just ache Acting like the whole world Is ours to take Cuz’ we’re all still creatures too STOP So I can see Just how to make all of these Chicken Fingies They look so good Just like they should At least they turned out The way I thought they would Cuz’ we’re all still creatures too

Hot Hamm 04:52
When you’re going down Downtown You know you look so fine So fine You know you taste so good So good CHORUS You’ve got to give me hot ham When you go down You’ve got to give me hot ham When you go down You’ve got to give me hot ham When you go down You’ve got to give me hot ham Well can you feel the heat? So hot Now are you jumpin’ off your seat? So good Can you add your sauce? Mayo CHORUS CHORUS This songs about a sandwich Sandwich Yeah this songs about a sandwich Sandwich This songs about a sandwich Sandwich Yeah this songs about a sandwich

Split Again 04:57
It’s 2am and I’m up again Thinking the same thing once again, I am Split again Well it’s half past 3 and the subject is me And I won’t be thinking collectively, I am Oh yes I am Split again CHORUS Late at night I forget Just how the scenery came to be And as I sense a whole lot yet I just can’t seem to Find myself on time This time 4’s around the corner, feeling like a loner As my mind starts to drift away from me I see Now the time is 5 and I can’t control my eye’s As the energy still flows out of me I am Oh yes I am Split again CHORUS Well it’s half passed 6, and my mind’s still ripped Trying to dig myself out of the hole I’m in I see Oh yes I see Well it’s finally 7 and the moons just in to heaven And the new day dawns upon me I see That I am Split again CHORUS x2

Here comes Pat and the big Carrot Please take a bite you know he wants to share it Some say it gives you slews of magic powers Eat it now and you’ll jump fire for hours La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la Grown in a lab injected with steroids Bestowed to us by Pats precious Ear boys In a night of revelry and exploration Give me your heart and hear our incantation La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la I don’t quite understand just how it got here But Nolan found it yeah, you know the choice was clear It would be ours to love and then take care of Given of course that you could find the answer to the La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la
