about

A concept album which posits the hypothetical scenario of world domination by malevolent reptilian humanoids--say that three times fast--as a way of grappling with war, natural disasters, and the end of the world.

Track Name: The Times, They Are Up
time’s up, time’s up
already
time’s up, time’s up
hold steady

and open up to embrace
the tidal waves and earthquakes
the purging of
our mistakes

time’s up, time’s up

I step outside
feel the wind
I watch the news
feel it coming
but
on better days,
I get this feeling

maybe we will find a way to survive.

well, yeah right.
Track Name: A Rock, A Slingshot
when it all falls apart, dear
think of it as providence
you know they ruled over Earth
once before
all we need is a meteor

all that we’re ever taught
is "give up; they have such sharp claws"
but all empires fall, dissolve
collapse back into dust.

it’ll all fall apart, dear

all they’ll see will be dark, dust
clouds: a nuclear winter
all we need is
a rock, a slingshot
we’ll make our own Chicxulub.

it’ll all fall apart, my dear.
Track Name: The Infiltrators
they collaborate
to infiltrate
our governments

they’re in control
of all our souls
and our investments

and it’s hard to know
which way to turn
because behind every smiling face
they could be lurking

it’s the red glow in their eyes
when the light hits them right
red like the blood of our babies.

they’re in control
of all our souls
Track Name: You're Bloody! We're Hungry!
you’re bloody
so bloody
we’re hungry
so hungry

you’re bloody
so bloody
we’re hungry
we’re ready
to feed

no thinking
processing
right or wrong
weak or strong
just gnawing
and gnawing
to fill us
to fill our
bellies

baaa baa baa baaa baaa babeedoobeedoooooowop
Track Name: Boxes
malaria
hepatitis B
bubonic plague
human immunodeficiency virus
avian flu
severe acute respiratory syndrome

counting down
to the true worldwide pandemic

malaria
hepatitis B
bubonic plague
human immunodeficiency virus
avian flu
severe acute respiratory syndrome

counting down
to the true

boxes of carbon, bones
and oxygen
hide them as deep as you can
microbes are coming
to eat off your
white skin
make sure those boxes
look nice.
