Track Name: Emerald Forest
Mr. Badger, won't you take me
to the forest, it's so lovely
it is glowing green and dark
as little lights shine through the bark
oh, won't you dance, in the forest
hear the voices, they're all calling
eyes are peeking, peeking through
expressionless but magical
look at the old forest king
he sits on his throne the oldest tree
watching over twilight parties,
comforting the honey bees,
oh emerald forest, emerald forest,
emerald forest, i love you.
Track Name: The Most! The Best! The Greatest! Forever!
The race of all time
to win the sun
the race of all time
to win the sun.
I run as fast as
i can go
and with
you beside me
the miles go by me
we'll run like kids on
black clouds with silver lining.

The most! The Best! The Greatest! Forever!
The most! The Best! The Greatest!
Forever! Forever! Forever!

We can win the race together
win the sunshines golden feeather
fly to heights we never imagined
see the world from all around it
climb the white teeth tower mountain
it gleams with light it shines so bright
and then at the top we'll scream
how exciting, what a scene.
But all the time I know
I could stay here and watch
movies with you
because I've already found the best thing in the world

The most! The Best! The Greatest! Forever!
The most! The Best! The Greatest!
Forever! Forever! Forever!
Forever! Forever! Forever!
Track Name: The Energy Song
I am seriously depressed about my level of energy
my level of energy is low
maybe I have mono
But thats not true I know
its just easier than saying that im lazy

Well my head says you can't write a song like this
its boring, it truly is
but I say no
it's universal
or at least it should be
people should care about their level of energy
Track Name: Honey In Your Ears
(chorus)
you make me die
you make me die
in the best way
you make me cry

please keep me spinning
so i can't see
please keep on killing whats
awful i me

(chorus)

please keep me spinning
so i can't see
my heart is beating
so strongly

do you like sugar in your tears
do you have honey in your ears

(chorus) x2
Track Name: Ogre Mountain
These ogres don't understand me
and they're always trying to catch me
with their heavy heavy clubs
whys it make them feel so good
from the top, the highest perch
to the center of the earth
caverns hidden underground
thats where all of them are found
fat faces are so twisted
mangled ears so they can't listen
they can't hear me leave this place
take my chance to escape

up through the caverns
there is a fountain
go with the fountain
leave ogre mountain

flood the mountain with our blood
flood the mountain
ogre drool, im drowning in it
up to my neck, nearly finished
from these dark caves
ill make my escape

through the caverns
go with the fountain
conquer the mountain
yeah you can do it
yeah you can do it
escape ogre mountain
escape ogre mountain
Track Name: I Wish I Were A Scientist
i wish i were a scientist
but i never did well in school
id like to talk for hours about
the problems with time travel

i wish i were a scientist
but i never did well in school
if you are a scientist
please dont think that im a fool

methylchloroisothiazolinone
hydroxypropyltrimonium

i wish i were a scientist
but i never did well in school
id like to know all the animals
that exist in the world

i wish i were a scientist
but i never did well i school
i find it really fascinating
i think science is really cool
Track Name: Algorythx And Gurantaxtaxq
beauty made gurantaxtaxq cry
but nobody knew
he sat in his castle wondering why
in the black clouds way up high

gurantaxtaxq what do you think
of scholars and heroes and those who sink
are you a demon or a soul
or did you not know that demons are beautiful
gurantaxtaxq said I know
for algorythx was made of snow
and he was beautiful

Aiden why don't you save them
they were your friends

Algorythx walked with a weight on his head
on his way to meet gurantaxtaxq
one of them would soon be dead

on a cold black volcano
the two demons raised their swords
algorythx, i love you
gurantaxtaxq screamed but flesh he tore
snow turned ash and died
gurantaxtaxq cried and said well
ill die too
and suffer
with you

aiden why dont you save them
they were your friends
Track Name: Royal Dragon
this song's about being strong
although i haven't been strong enough to sing along
so all i can vocalize to you
is what i originally viewed
this song's about spiders with skinny fists
in which i haven't believed lately because of the risk
to tell you the truth, its also about fighting
but, although im hesitant to say, im a pacifist

but if the fightings inside i guess its ok
when its just an illustration of a royal display
of kings and monsters and pterradactyls
and sea creatures dreaming about fractals
and royal dragon sits at the top
flying through marker clouds
ghosts are playing with a box
they are happy
i am happy

everybodys having adventures
doing whatever they want
the dungeons remind them of caterpillars
they all sit and watch and listen
white white skeletons watch the rain
that is glowing and burning pink
they wish that they had blood

royal dragon your the star of many poems
one line poems are the most honest
the young mans voice
he doesnt care
hes having fun
and life isnt all that bad
so ask me a question
were most of your stars out
were you busy singing your heart out

and maybe sometimes i'll feel lonely
thinking books are pretty doesn't make you money
and drawing valiant creatures with wings
doesnt accomplish anything
and acting silly might feel good
especially when your understood
but sometimes you'll stand next to someone
you might feel strange
you might feel dumb

everything is still when you come close to being content
but the stillness is not comforting
you think why keep on living if everythings done
the more you accept the less is left but
life is still exciting
when you keep on trying and
trust that its worth it

royal dragon and mosquito mummy are friends
they're friends until the end
royal dragon helps mosquito mummy when
his bandages become undone
thhey are both very old and
they are both very happy
but sometimes mosquito mummy
is grumpy
Track Name: Sophia
i'll pretend that my best friend is right next to me
that'll give me courage to be honest and to breathe
i will have to be my own best friend right next to me
otherwise i'll have no strength and i am bound to freeze

i looked around at the party
everyone was dead
the words that came from their mouths
their looks were all force-fed
i got scared and forgot all about beauty
my friend smiled and restored my faith in humanity

i'll pretend that my best friend is right next to me
that'll give me courage to be honest and to breathe
i will have to be my own best friend right next to me
otherwise i'll have no strength and i am bound to freeze

i walked up to the office with a form in my hand
i had a question but i felt stupid asking
my friend said that  she would come with me
then what did i care what that secretary thought of me
Track Name: Firefly
im sorry that i find your bickering so funny
but tell me just what you've accomplished
i dont think you understand how happy i am
i have done what ive always wanted
what ive always wanted
you see
you cant take that away from me

this complacency is so sweet
im gliding through the motions of kissing your feet
im fine all by myself
so take your stance

if i reclined into anything right now
id melt
just close my eyes and slip away
you see
because you have no hold on me

so im sorry that i walk away and laugh
but im so proud that i wont let you make me feel daft
do you hear the symphony in me
its telling you that right now im free

you can crash through my room
but i wont be able to hear you
you can scream all you want
but your stress is staying inside you

next thing you know, i'll be in the forest
when its black at night
so warm inside, i'll be a firefly
you would say "I don't care about the world
our lifes an adventure
we'll fight it together
whatever happened
it wouldnt matter
because we would drive away and laugh"
Track Name: The Long Boat
Step onto the long boat
push away from shore
off into the great unknown
wave goodbye, to stormy nights
Track Name: We, The Grimlocks
We, the Grimlocks, kill all we see
crushing all that stand in our path
drawing everything a blood bath
aaaaaaaahhhhhh
now there is no turning back

We, the grimlocks, kill all we see
till the land is bare and empty

crushing all that stand in our path
draw you nearer draw a blood bath
aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh
now there is no turning back

we have blank and sightless eyes
but we smell your soot grime

we, the grimlocks, kill all we see
till the land is bare and empty
we have come to purge the filthy
we've been cleaning so completely
