"Ahhhh!! Daddy, daddy, what is it?!"

"What? Alright, I'm coming... What is it?"
"Daddy, look over there!"
"Holy sweet Lord baby barbecue Jesus!"
"What is it daddy?"
"I know what it is. They said this day would come. They said it would happen.
"IT'S GROOVEZILLA!!"

He's gonna swunk you up
You'd better fill your cup
He's gonna...

Go, go, Groovezilla!

Everybody's gonna run away... Groovezilla.

He's gonna swunk you up
You'd better fill your cup
He's gonna swunk you up
You'd better fill your cup
He's gonna...

Go, go, Groovezilla!
Track Name: Django's Funk
Walk in frozen room
Dim lights, cheap perfume
Everybody’s fate
Frame by frame begins to animate
Sit down, conversate
Quick now, you know you're late
Jeeves hands you a glass
Points up stairs to the eyes in a white mask
You don’t know his name
Shake his hand all the same
He introduces you
To Major Minor and the Flat Crew
Just when he’s got you keen
That Bloody Mary screams
She takes off all her clothes
Swinging from the ceiling on a great green garden hose
You stand there going blind
Look down from where you've climbed
Everybody stops and...

Dance


Tudo é refrão
A morte e a vida
A noite e o dia
O céu e o chão

Poluição
Do mar e do mundo
Da mente ou da alma
Da percepção

Tributação
Devendo, cobrando
Tirando, roubando
Com fome ou sem pão

Sou pelo Não
Já disse, sou contra
A revolução
Da ocasião
Tudo é refrão


Out on the balcony
Dr Strangelove deals for three
Vanishes into the night like...
And so the game begins
I bet my life, all-in
Cincinnati shows his hand and...
Cinderella smiles
Declares she’s not a child
Then runs under your legs to...
Alice’s bunny laughs at
The Major’s better half till
Cinderella yells and tells him...

Dance


Tudo é refrão
A morte e a vida
A noite e o dia
O céu e o chão

Poluição
Do mar e do mundo
Da mente ou da alma
Da percepção

Tributação
Devendo, cobrando
Tirando, roubando
Com fome ou sem pão

Sou pelo Não
Já disse, sou contra
A revolução
Da ocasião
Tudo é refrão
Track Name: Will's A Stranger
Found life on the edge, cold feet again
Feeling like I got one less real friend
What is paradise? Just another vice
Full-house heart breaker with her honey zen
Flamboyant tree tickled by a sea breeze
Man men, club hand, hurricane disease
Wide eyed still waiting for the other side
Dead-end, I've got a pocket full of old keys

And I told you, we don't live here anymore

Slippery slope, she's an antique dead joke
Used to use her all the time but now I'm out of rope
Coming up on fate baby, let's elevate
I know the guy selling hope to the old pope
29.95 for a bad dream
If you, if you ever wake up, next one's on me
New soul, no way, what's another day
Living in the hell of heaven's heavy-hearted fantasy


And I told you, we don't live here anymore
Will's a stranger, but I've heard of him before
I'm an actor hidden on the empty stage
I know you're calling, only heard you yesterday
Like I told you, we don't live here anymore


Time won't tell if you've got no change
So give another dollar to a crack den stranger
It's strange, huh? How everybody's still
Talking like they know what's gonna age you
Sit down sun set slow motion
Sipping rum punch lie back I the ocean
Blue up, blue down, have a look around
Got her by your side, don't need another notion

And I told you, we don't live here anymore

New kind of old perception
Take up sides in a two-faced nation
Got to get out, got to kill this doubt
Got to find another mind with the same frustration
No views, short fuse
Might have just thought he had the mad house blue
But he's just like me, life ain't free
Play another hand, don't fold don't lose


And I told you, we don't live here anymore
Will's a stranger, but I've heard of him before
I'm an actor hidden on the empty stage
I know you're calling, only heard you yesterday
Like I told you, we don't live here anymore
Track Name: Mia (Feat. Tatiana Vaz)
Trim your blanket, close your eyes
Drift beneath the yellow moon
Stare into the Dipper's eyes
Sounding softly out of tune

Find the weakness in your knees
Paint it in your secret book
When you grow and get away
Leave your soul far from the hook


Why must everything
Must everything be new
Living in an old place?


Mia, are you still awake?
There are things I need to know
Stars are out, I'm up on deck
Muddy minds are down below

Have you untied all your knots
Have you turned back all your keys?
Can you see the Dipper's eyes
Staring at this yellow me?


Why must everything
Must everything be new
Living in a old place?


Make it fast, make it last
Draw the clouds onto the mark
I only know a simple truth:
We all look the same in the dark

Into the night
They’re all behind you and you’re into the night
You’re all alone and now you’re into the night
Meet your answer in the dead of the light
Take your time and sail into the night
While the encore echoes after the fight
All the wives are weeping into the night
And the victors smilingly after the fight
So won’t you tell me if it’s wrong or it’s right
So won’t you tell me if it’s black or it’s white
I’m gonna sail with you into the night
I’m gonna lay you down

Trim your blanket close your eyes it's times to dream


Mia are you still awake?
There are things I need to know
Stars are out, I'm up on deck
Muddy minds are down below

Have you untied all your knots?
Have you turned back all your keys?
Can you see the Dipper's eyes
Staring at this yellow me?


Why must everything
Must everything be new
Living in an old place?
Track Name: Summertime (Feat. Tatiana Vaz and Alex Goldhill)
Summertime, and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-looking
So hush little baby, Don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But till that morning, there ain't nothing can harm you
With daddy and mammy standing by

When I up ina de morning and de sun shines
And me never hesitate fi call it sublime, just life
Yesterday me feeling bout you
My world de one day sad but today say looking alright
Excuse me could you tell me one time
Where you going to wid that fine piece of whine
When we get together girl a fine piece of mind
How a body wey dat we go twist up like twine
Like wine we a store down in da cellar she's fine
More sweeter dan even de fruit upon de vine
Oh my, oh lord how could I
By the end of da night she a delivering my child
Speech na weak we me move ina she mind
Hot like beach when we movin an she grind
Na make no plan so me have fi take mi time
Push i pon dis line till me dislocate she spine eh!

Summertime, and the living is easy
(It's the time of our life let it flow by)
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
(We go light, we go light up de sky)
Oh, your daddy's rich (say your papa's so wealthy) and your ma is good-looking
(She's so pretty, she's so pretty, can't believe how she witty)
So hush little baby, Don't you cry
(Don't you lie, don't you sigh, don't you cry)

One of these mornings (bright an early) you're gonna rise up singing
(Sing a likkle song in de morning)
Then you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
(One step to da beach, one trow an da.....)
But till that morning, (one blink of an eye) there ain't nothing can harm you
(Cos you got everything dat money can buy)
With Daddy and Mammy standing by
(An your mama, an your papa)

With daddy and mammy standing by your side
(Ima stand by your side!)
Track Name: Got Milk?
"Good evening Sir, how can I help you?"
"Yes, do you serve milk here?"
"I'm sorry, we don't serve milk."

Lord only knows I tried

Lord only knows I
Lord only knows I
Lord only knows I tried

When you drink that milk and your eyes get wide
Then you're gonna know how I feel inside
Lord only knows I tried.

"What do you want?"
"Yes I'm.. I'm looking for... milk?"
"No milk."

Lord only knows I tried

Lord only knows I
Lord only knows I
Lord only knows I tried

It'll make you want to dance, gonna think you've died
I'll see you in heaven at the top of that ride
Lord only knows I tried

"Welcome, pilgrim!"
"I just. Need. Some milk!"
"Of course I will give you milk!"

Lord only knows I tried
Track Name: You've Lost Your Mind
The chorus of clarinets is crying out good day
But the saxophones sound like they've got something to say
The masquerading anarchist is making for the door
He's got sixteen hundred dollars that he swept up from the floor
His screams are heard now word for word as he's shot down by the guards
He says mama see me now look how they've put me behind bars
And in the corner of the cell he finds a lonely queen of hearts

You hear the church bells chime for the thirteenth time
They let you know that you've lost your mind

You'd been at work that day, you dragged yourself from bed
Where you said you'd make the most of it, be happy you're not dead
But then as four o'clock it rolls around you feel a little bleak
You've got Hennessy for your medicine and the sidewalk for your sleep
So you stop into a nearby zoo, where the preacher is taking bets
You think you're having a good time until you lose your cigarettes
So you close your eyes, the music dies, and from the movie set

You hear the church bells chime for the thirteenth time
They let you know that you've lost you're mind

You don't know why you made that face
When the suits shined moonlight in your eyes
You could not stop crying when they asked you
What the medicine would do, so I said it'll turn you blue

Then they locked us up for waging war
And threw away the key, ruling by decree
I said please policeman don't make me take
This job I do not need, but he never set me free

The lights up on the skyline
Like the ripples on the shoreline
Get you lost inside your own mind
It was a first, it was the worst
But you never heard them burst

You hear the church bells chime for the thirteenth time
They let you know that you've lost your mind
Track Name: We're All Doing Time
Let go of my hand, baby, you don't understand
The people I've been facing
Or the feeling I've been chasing
Go to the bar and get yourself another drink
Just try not to blink before they serve you
They've got ways to make you pay
They've got vibes to make you stay
They've got a trigger on your brain
They say it keeps you sane
But you know better, keep your head
And heed the words that I've said
Or we will all end up dead if you keep going

I did my time trying to make sense of the world
With this pocket full of words
And this jacket full of lies
When we're all creatures in disguise
I did my time trying to find the good and bad
In this maze, it makes me mad
With a blindfold on my eyes
When we're all creatures in disguise

Chase that feeling, looks like someone here is dealing
Healing up the broken socialites
They can't survive without emotions
Fuelled by poison party potions
And their everyday commotions are spilling out
Take to the street, get on your feet and dance
With every girl in France
Let's all get lost in romance
We've got no blood on our hands if we now meet all their demands
We'll just be part of the crowd in the stands

I did my time trying to make sense of the world
With this pocket full of words
And this jacket full of lies
When we're all creatures in disguise
I did my time trying to find the good and bad
In this maze, it makes me mad
With a blindfold on my eyes
When we're all creatures in disguise

That stretched out singer trying to rhyme
The pretty lady on the sign
The drunken jailer no one could find
The loaded junkie, feeling fine
The thinker in his thoughts sublime
The teenage waster in his prime
Every soul without a mind
It might be yours, it might be mine, but,

We're all doing time
