Seal Lullaby 01:31
Oh hush thee my baby, the night is behind us and black are the waters that sparkled so green The moon o'er the combers looks downward to find us At rest in the hollows that rustle between Where billow meets billow, there soft be thy pillow Ah weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee Asleep in the arms of the slow swinging seas. (lyrics by Rudyard Kipling)

The days keep slipping away like pages torn I'd like to appreciate the calm before the stormy weather will come stormy weather will go But I will never be famous, this I know Global warming is now called climate change Weather patterns becoming wild and strange But we keep moving along, we're so kinetic We fantasize about zombies and vampires Because we're afraid of what we are Don't be scared of the truth it isn't going anywhere It isn't going anywhere no Don't be scared of the truth Just because it's serious Denial's more delirious We're so powerful, we've got brains on top The one thing we never learned was how to stop We argue about what it means, and what's important And still the days keep slipping away And I'm still here, wondering why I'll never be famous Don't be scared of the truth it isn't going anywhere It isn't going anywhere no Don't be scared of the truth Just because it's serious Denial's more delirious

Scapeghost 04:33
Scapegoat coast to coast After all I've done, I blame you the most One for the lord of hosts And the other side also gets a goat Now I'm holy, I'm restored By the color of the cord Purify me in the red stream of your blood Kol chatotam, bimtzulot yam ( Hurl into the depths of the sea all our [lit. 'their'] sins) Scapegoat coast to coast After all I've done, I blame you the most One for the lord of hosts And the other side also gets a goat Kill the killer, right the wrong The illusion overdrawn I can't save you and myself at the same time Kol haolam b'tzilat ha'adam (the whole world in the shadow of man)

The inside and the outside don't match up The left side and the right side are not in touch The logic and the reason are not enough The blind spots and the targets are all lined up Gonna give me that fake smile 'Cause I don't put out the sieg heil No my ideas are not in style, that's all that matters I got nothing but space time To do another one thought crime You might mess up somewhere, sometime, the surface shatters But I won't cancel you If you seem to goose step We woke up in a dream, didn't really wake up I'll never know the truth If I never know myself (trumpet solo by Jordan Hirsch) Gonna give me that fake smile 'Cause I don't put out the sieg heil No my ideas are not in style, that's all that matters I got nothing but space time To do another one thought crime You might mess up somewhere, sometime, the surface shatters But I won't cancel you If you seem to goose step We woke up in a dream, didn't really wake up I'll never know the truth If I never know myself

Diana 08:46
In with the old, out with the new The Jubilee, the sacred coup The time has come, the blood must spill Until the lady has her fill The tree in whose dim shadow grow The ghastly priest doth reign and guard The priest who slew the slayer too And shall himself be slain, disbarred Diana reach out from the lake And find me a man as strong as my father was Reach out from the lake And find me one suitable to be my lover No sacrifice too great to trim the tree on our estate The mirror reflects our lunacy Long live the king, bring him to me Mirror, mirror in the wood The time has come, it's understood To give our lady her new blood An eager girl, her first love Father you must have known Now that your girl has grown You've done everything you could There's a refugee in the wood Diana reach out from the lake And find me a man as strong as my father was Reach out from the lake And find me one suitable to be my lover No sacrifice too great to trim the tree on our estate The mirror reflects our lunacy Long live the king, bring him to me Trivia open me in health The crux of life and death I straddle The king of the wood is ever hard I will be soft for him I am the chapel Woe to the people whose king never dies, oh Instead of new life you want to ossify, oh I love you daddy, but here's a surprise Now let's return to our favorite reprise Diana reach out from the lake Find me a man as strong as my father was Reach out from the lake And find me one suitable to be my lover No sacrifice too great to trim the tree on our estate The mirror reflects our lunacy Long live the king, bring him to me

Are you a god? That's kind of odd, 'Cause you're so flawed, and you're human What can you do? And prove it's you Can you let me be? Please let me go A narrow place, the human race Up in your face, building something A pyramid, a happy kid Put on the grid, let him be free Don't harden your heart to me Don't harden your heart to anybody I fall down and get back up But I am growing stronger Don't harden your heart to me Don't harden your heart to anybody The song and dance, the happenstance Who's up or down, don't be stupid We're all the same, beauty and pain The joy and blame, eating pooping Don't harden your heart to me Don't harden your heart to anybody
