Track Name: Strange But Nice
So strange
Strange but nice (x2)
So cool
Don't even think twice
Strange but nice (x3)
Track Name: Nowhere
My stable eye sees straight and true.
Don't hold back now - see it through.
I'm focusin'
I don't feel no air on my skin.
The world's getting narrow.
Count the beats on my steady heart.

Goin' nowhere (x2)

Storm the citadel - scale the outer wall.
Subdue the sentry - use stealth and agility.
Melt into the walls.
Become darkness.
Do a ninja roll into nothingness.

Goin' nowhere (x8).

Locate the treasure vault.
Destroy the lock with explosives.
Steal the rubies - just get out of there.
Sneak into the holy chambers
Listen to heavy breathing.
Take out the sword of retribution
Slit the priest's throat in his sleep.

Goin' nowhere (x8).
Track Name: It Came From The Heart
And it came from the heart
Went straight for the jugular.
We're all a little ashamed
As we play the part.

And it came out of the swamp
Headed straight for the drive-thru.
As we all tear up
Think about what it means to you.

I don't blame you for leavin'
With so much out there to see.
And while the world is changing you
I'm still the same way how you left me.

And it came from the forest
Broke into my kitchen.
And I'd kick it out
But these things tend to grow on me.

It came from outer space
Straight in thru my eye socket.
I'd fight it off
But I just keep seeing your face.

And it came from the heart
Went straight for the jugular.
And I'm a little ashamed
As I play the part.
Track Name: User Friendly
In terms we can understand
It's the user friendly way.

In terms of endearment
These are the rules we must engage.

(It could go either way).
Track Name: Candy In The Sky
Starin' in the wrong direction.
I got bad reception.
I'm absentee.

Starin' in this time of wonder
And human discovery.
I'm absentee.

Stars are candy in the sky.
Bring 'em down.
Bring 'em down.
We're ants all over 'em. (x2)

Starin' at some kind of waterfall
And a beautiful wall.
In the lucky country.

Starin'
Calculatin'
Infinite pathways into the next reality.

Stars are candy in the sky.
Bring 'em down.
Bring 'em down.
We're ants all over 'em. (x5)

Stars are candy in the sky.
Bring 'em down.
Bring 'em down.
Track Name: Up and Go
Up and go.

You got that - get up and go. (x3)

Push me down
Just leave me here on the ground.
I know I'm putting you thru pain
But you're the last one left in the game.

You got that - get up and go. (x3)

You're the last hope.
You're the only one
And you're out there getting it done.

It so simple
It seems tragic.
But I refuse to believe it's magic.

You got that - get up and go. (x3)
You got that.
Track Name: Namor
Namor
Defender of the seas.
Prince Of Atlantis
Indifferent to humanity.

Please forgive the ignorance of man.
I offer up my servitude
To the legions of the deep. (x2)

Namor
Defender of the seas.
Prince Of Atlantis
Indifferent to humanity.

Please forgive the ignorance of man.
I offer up my servitude
To the legions of the deep.
Track Name: Parallel
Hit and miss.
Hit and spin.
Who even knows
Which genre movie we're in?

Catch and kiss.
Kiss and tell.
This mixture of excitement and guilt
Don't go down so well.

If I leave it alone
Will it disappear or continue on its own?

Parallel
I wish you well.
Parallel
I ain't jealous, I wish you well.
Parallel
I wish you well.
No I ain't bitter, I wish you well.

Parts of you
Have in turn become a part of me.
And my curiosity isn't in vain
But ultimately leads to disappointment.

Broken shards
Split up down, each way
And all apart.
Edging further towards an unreachable place.

And if I ignore it
Will it go away?
Or come back to get me another way?

Parallel
I wish you well.
Parallel
I ain't jealous, I wish you well.
Parallel
I wish you well.
No I ain't bitter, I wish you well.

Parallel
I wish you well.
Parallel
I ain't jealous, I wish you well.
Parallel
I wish you well.
Live long, prosper, fare thee well.
Track Name: Something Must Be Done
Something must be done.
Write this down for me.

Something must be done.
Listen carefully.

Something must be done. (x8)
Track Name: Let Loose
And the night is raw.
Some might say it's too close to call.

Consult the mirror
The mirror on the wall.
Who is good and fair and on the ball?

Precious silvers and blatant gold.
Suspended disbelief
As forewarned and foretold.

Ain't it nice the way some prophecies unfold
Underline this fact
In black, italic bold.

I'll destroy us
Let loose on an unsuspecting world. (x4)

I'll leave it to the viking lords to seal my fate.
As I assume my closing state.

Isn't it great. (x3)
Track Name: Zombie Summer
Smell my flesh.
It's nothing less
Than my best dress.

I'm heading out thru the night.
No regrets
I'm gonna do it right.

So in love
Zombie summer. (x2)
I'm in love
Zombie summer.
No regrets.

Dying free, living hard.
In the eyeball of a storm in a teacup.

No rules, just my body.
Spreading heat from party to party.

So in love
Zombie summer. (x2)
I'm in love
Zombie summer.
No regrets.

Smell my flesh.
It's nothing less
Than my best dress.

So in love
Zombie summer. (x2)
I'm in love
Zombie summer.
No regrets.

I hope this summer never ends.
Track Name: Number One Fan
I wonder how it's gonna turn out?
I hope it will be for the best.

You never can tell in this crazy world
What's gonna happen next.

I try to be optimistic.
I wanna be the number one fan.

Here I am. (x2)

I try to be optimistic.
I wanna be the number one fan.

Here I am. (x4)
