Track Name: Paywall
We made him in our own image
A baby a man, a king
We dressed him from rags to riches
We bring him our offering

You're made of what we want more of
You're made up of so much need
Some carved you with acts of kindness
Mama's cooking or stone cold greed

We did it, we can do it, we can do anything
We made it, we can make it, we can make anything
We said it, we can say it, we can say anything

Behind that paywall uh oh
Can't afford to know what's real

The links in the chain keep breaking
It's too heavy to keep it up
We're running around in circles
Over the planet with all our stuff

We made it all up, let it control us.
Track Name: Lucky Sperm Club
The Earth is spinning
Someone's winning something somewhere
More power to that guy
But I can't catch a break

The slings and arrows, straits and narrows we call living
And the ice can get so thin there's no way off but through

Not everybody could be, in the lucky sperm club

My screen's on utopia, it helps me to get through the day
You never know what you got till it's running away
Residue, we can't see
Sticks to you, it sticks to me

Not everybody could be, in the lucky sperm club

We didn't mean to be born, we didn't mean to be poor
You didn't work to have more
But why you got to keep score?
We didn't mean to be here
We didn't mean to be weird
I hope the telephone book doesn't give me up

Not everybody could be in the lucky sperm club

But if you are a person in this place, you already won the human race
DNA passed through time and space
You already won the human race
Even if you don't catch what you chase
You already won the human race
Not every body could be in the lucky sperm club
Track Name: Monster
Will you come with me, we’ll creep out the door
Go down the alley, we’ll stop at the 24 hour supermarket
This is our night world, it’s more scared of us
Got coffee money in our pockets, some things we gotta discuss

I got a monster in my head, I can’t get it out
It’s always coming after me, I gotta sing it out
I can’t believe it, but I’m the one that feeds it

Everybody comes here, to Starlite in the dark
We’re not exceptional, we’re only doing our part
The waitress, she is stuck here, till the end of her shift
But we’re just getting started, we’re young, we’re wild and adrift.

We got monsters in our heads, we can’t get ‘em out
Always coming after we, gotta sing it out
I can’t believe it, but I’m the one that feeds it

Monster in my room, filling days with gloom
You’re just trying to help remember how it felt
Track Name: Song 4 Sale
Songs for sale, songs for sale
Entertaining sing alongs for sale, sliding scale, handcrafted

Words for sale, words for sale, black and white and red all over
Proof for sale, truth for sale, can you hear the cry?

Dreams for sale, schemes for sale, cynically proferred
We've got memes for sale, drawn to scale, made to order

Spin for sale, skin for sale, young and blonde and thin for sale
Wear a veil, blaze a trail, time to go to work

Time for sale, debt for sale, manufactured threat for sale
Slightly stale, it's a whale, this is normal

Thing for sale, sing for sale, here's a dingaling for sale
Never fail, sordid tale, shop the pain away

If you control enough people, it doesn't matter what is true anymore, no

If you can fool enough people, doesn't really matter anymore
Track Name: Light
Woe is me, I have sinned
The world's becoming dark around me
Did my crime cause decline?
Now the days grow ever shorter

Dust to dust, I am cussed
My bride, my sweet bride cries beside me
I can't eat, I won't drink
Except the harsh decree upon me

And for eight days he fasted, for eight days he prayed
Wallowed in grief for the choices he made
The world is devolving to chaos, disorder
Everything really, hung in the border

Then the light grew!
Every day shone brighter than before
When the dawn broke, Adam learned the order of the world

His spirits raised, he marked the days
To celebrate the light restoring
He offered up a unicorn
In return for one more morning

Then the light grew!
Every day shone brighter than before
When the dawn broke, Adam learned the order of the world
