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.

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.

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.

Red 02:59
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.

Melt 04:34
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

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.

Rhyadah 03:15
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
