Lyrics

Aliens Done Took Mah Sanity

Written By: Matthew Galer

Mayday, mayday, we’re going down

Mother always said that I was of a special breed

But then neglected to inform me that my species won’t agree

So as the lights disorientate

And transport me vertically

This unnatural selection

Instantly advances me

Because the tests are in, your chart is here, a lollipop, then done

Now publish my results to prove I am the chosen one

They didn’t take my sanity

When they arrived and took an interest in me

My existence questioned by life forms lower than I

As amoebas ostracize amoebas that claim otherwise

But still we can’t make the connection

Because our arrogance assumes

That no one’s waving down at us

From microscopic zoom


Because the tests are in, your chart is here, a lollipop then done

Now publish my results to prove I am the chosen one

They didn’t take my sanity

When they arrived and took an interest in me


Surely now my story is more than mere fantasy

And the evidence conclusive that I’m not fucking crazy

No doubt the final message reads

That they arrived and took an interest in me


No intelligent life was found (They took an interest in me)

Subject dubbed mentally unsound(They took an interest in me)

Lets burn this bastard to the ground (They took an interest in me)

The Mushrooms Are Coming

Written By: Matthew Galer

It's time for the dirt

To move up in the world

Up is down, this havens gone to hell

So we dig a grave, to live to tell


I am king in here

Worshipped and revered

But alas, this place is not built for two

And this one, has nothing left to rule


Paranoia built a shelter for me

From one hell of a storm that's always been brewing

If you look to the forecast there's no cloud to see

But when the mushrooms are coming... then we'll see whose crazy


You maniacs. You blew it up.

God damn you.

God damn you all to hell


Hell is on the other side of that door

So the lesser of two evils is to stay and become furniture

For civilization to survive the human race has to become centralised


When I'm old and grey

I'd have won the race

Soul survived, this planets my playground

For maintenance, entry's still not allowed.


Can we go outside and play?

It looks like such a lovely day


Bang goes the fun guy routine

Bang goes the fungi
