Derick Penrod The combination of chiptune with the almost grungy vibe gives me chills every time! Favorite track: Try Hard.

Isaac Riley - Guitar, Bass, Drum Programming, Keyboards, Production, etc. etc. other things etc. whatever else I did etc.

Big thanks to everything and everyone I sampled from. It's mostly just incidental sounds, but sometimes I implemented them more musically...! It's by no means a crutch, I just wanted to try something different.

Track Name: Try Hard
Lonely opposition
Like a cautious melody I feel
Livid, tempered, seasoned
Nothing beats a felony I have a
Crazy, simple delusion
Like I never wanted anything
At all ends, it all ends, it's all ended

You want fire?
You'll never get lighter
Tied to the sun
like a star shaped liar

Coping with losses
and teenage bosses
Until the teet drops
Faster than you tossed it

I'm not a dreamer
I'm an unbeliever
So put me on your list of people who can scream her
I'm a fighter
a cryer
a liar
and a try-hard

Yeah I'm a try-hard
Yeah I'm a try-hard
Yeah I'm a try-hard

New wave people need it
Like a mother fucking lolipop and
I know I'm not the best one
For the understated dodgy rock but
Hear me out it's a poison
and you need it too

You need it too

You want fire?
You'll never get lighter
Tied to the sun
like a star shaped liar

Coping with losses
and teenage bosses
Until the teet drops
Faster than you tossed it

I'm not a dreamer
I'm an unbeliever
So put me on your list of people who can scream her
I'm a fighter
a cryer
a liar
and a try-hard

Yeah I'm a try-hard
Yeah I'm a try-hard
Yeah I'm a try-hard

Keep it up
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Keep it up

You want fire?
You'll never get lighter
Tied to the sun
like a star shaped liar

Coping with losses
and teenage bosses
Until the teet drops
Faster than you tossed it

I'm not a dreamer
I'm an unbeliever
So put me on your list of people who can scream her
I'm a fighter
a cryer
a liar
and a try-hard

Yeah I'm a try-hard
Yeah I'm a try-hard
Yeah I'm a try-hard
Track Name: Cocaine Shame
Introducing capitalism
To the unsuspecting man
with the children out of reach
so you can turn off the engine fan

And when the water - isn't finished
You get a Communism Hoe-Down
with some cole slaw spinnach

I'm a dancer
A lancer
An old-timey prancer

But I won't take no for an answer

If you think you can ever count on me
Count your blessings
'cause the moon is coming down
and it's bringing second-guessings

Tylenol on my brain
Tylenol in my heart
My lungs are filled with cocaine
But my intestines are filled with shame

Defining what is cold and what is hot
isn't all that hard to do
You take the good and the bad
and mix it in a stew

Give or take, all the things that you've seen
Make a microwave fridge
look like a macrowade spleen

I'm a liar
A tryer
and a washer disher dryer

But I don't give a shit about your crying

When the world goes under
You can drive to Australia
You asshole

(I'm outta here)

Tylenol on my brain
Tylenol in my heart
My lungs are filled with cocaine
But my intestines are filled with shame

Tylenol on my brain
Tylenol in my heart
My lungs are filled with cocaine
But my intestines are filled with shame
Track Name: Rodeo
Whiplash, turns to dust
Magic gypsy calenders running to bust
Barking at a dog is harder than it looks

Rodeo damnation
is in town tonight
Feel good animation
leaves us

(keep it up)

Yard sales, bargin deals
Counter-culture losers don't get how it feels
Writing up a resume to learn how to squeal

Rodeo damnation
is in town tonight
Feel good animation
leaves us

Whiplash, turn to dust
Calenders, running bust
Barking dog, harder looks
Reservations, gravy books
Gunsmoke, train wheels
Yard sales, bargin deals
Counter-culture, how it feels
Resumes, learn to squeal
Track Name: Fusion Candle
I fear the world's gone dark
I look along the mountain range, I see the land's mark

Tonight, I'll see the world end brightly
Along the angels move so lightly

and I will end my life
Tonight I feel them open right
For me to end it all

I know the answer

This world is too much for me to handle
I hold an empty fusion candle
For love - its weakness, the land of the free
is held back by lies and locks on the leisure

and I have something to say
This world will never pray
For a demon - with no name

I know it's the truth

I fear the world's gone dark
I look along the mountain range, I see the land's mark

Tonight, I'll see the world end brightly
Along the angels move so so lightly

and I will end my life
Tonight, I'll make them lie
To end the world is my right
Track Name: Interpolation
Give it up, giving out
The speedy man always slows down
I have a Habatchi in the colour red -moan-
Give me money, or complaints
Either one will be worthless

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you
I don't need no interpolation -moan-

Have a glass of wine, then define what it says
I don't have any patience for no newborn newly-weds
If there was a hole where my face was
I'd probably name it Sam
Unfortunately there's no way to detect
If the price was ever right to begin with, in fact
I've got a secret, it involves killing goats
Nothing to boast, nothing to coast OKAY GO

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you
I don't need no interpolation -moan-

You're no Sega Saturn but it'll have to do
I guess I'll just have to destroy things to make room
Death is near, apparent and inherit
Brothers and sisters don't make very good parents
Give me complaints, or give me money (GIVE ME MONEY)
Probably the former, I could really use a buddy

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you
I don't need no interpolation -moan-

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you

I don't need no interpolation
I don't have to see the future to tell you
It's a damn shame we're so disconnected
Because if we weren't then I could tell you
Track Name: Granger
The psychopath in the curly dress
is making lots of destruction with his swirly hands
and Kory The Man versus Lakyn The Loser
The cards come together and they're never too loose, err

I make this land turn on its head
and South Park runs in an infinite land
and there's an Egg Man on a Gameboy Color

and I understated, I underplated this

No, Fence
"Haha", says Super Kay
Tiny and ready to play

When they're never going back
Turning their clocks to the ones that laugh
and when the monitor points to the file cabinet
The man in the crown will load up his Work In Progress

The car isn't out of fuel, it's just wooden
and on the wall
The tiger and Lady Liberty know themselves to a brawl
Track Name: Fire Squid

Track Name: Saturn
I've been alone for so long
That I forgot what it's like to be awake
I believed in a fairy land in my dreams
Where I was the air, and the air was fake

The lights are on and on
and dreams are made of war
But fantasy is far from over
Her eyes are a quirky lore

I wish I wasn't alive to see this happen
to what I call my home
I wanted to be dead forever
But then I'd have to be my own

The nights are on and on
and dreams are meant to die
But reality is never real
and sleeping dogs still lie
Track Name: Remote Dancer (Fresh)
Micro-sonic ashtrays
Explosive decay
Give a lover to your mother
Free weekend getaways

Put out the chainsaw
Let a hobo use it
Show the world what it's like
to be a train set

Marking up prices
and holding guarantees
I don't sell out, I sell in
I don't mellitus, insulin

Capital choke-hold, we know
Party of three I got a load
Nothing beats the best
When you're expecting morse code

I'm fresh
Like a pirate in a courtroom
Keeping up appearances
but never let you through

I'm fresh
I'm a remote dancer
Find a new girlfriend
Give her a chance, sir

Open road clinics
for superior cynics
Take a shot for the road
Shoot the load while you're low

Talking up storms
and whispering sunsets
Putting up a barrier
to shield the brain cleft

Deafening the old
and cleaning up the new
Forfetting the gold
and spilling what you spew

Michael has a wish
his wish is to be a fish
So give him what he dished
(YO, JOHNNY)

I'm fresh
Like a chef in an oven
Grilling off to the sounds
of refridgerators running

I'm fresh
I'm a remote dancer
Fine a homeless man
Give him a foreclosure
Track Name: Halothane
Defying the laws of nature is an easy task
First you varnish life to nothing, then you finish last
Creating what you destroy? There's a simple solution
Make nothing at all, that's my professional conclusion

Halothane
Halothane
Halothane

(Halothane, Halothane, Halothane)

WARNING: HALOTHANE LEVELS CRITICAL

Devaluing your home owner's property? I wish I were you
That way I could just weasel my way out like a goody four shoes
Turn around the market, make yourself some change
Hoping for the best, won't get you any range

Halothane
Halothane
Halothane

(Halothane, Halothane, Halothane)
(Halothane, Halothane, Halothane)

Halothane
Halothane
Halothane

(Halothane...)
(Halothane...)
(Halothane...)
(Halothane...)
(Halothane...)
(Halothane...)
Track Name: Telephone Bill
Breaking stones
with your long john bones
Giving up prostitutes
on the microwave loans

Taking shimmy jimmies in
on a Saturday night
Coasting on good luck
with the facts on a Lite-Brite

Hold the phone
Someone's calling in from Rome
Gotta take out the flash
Before the camera moans

In a minute with a priest
Turned sideways
Approaching high altitudes
on the Cali bays

I see
The lights on me
I give 'em what I want
and they take it away from me

Wishing I wasn't here anymore
Wishing I wasn't here anymore

Keeping up
with the nearest intersection
Timing all of your food
to your kitchen's ovulation

Beating a dead horse's ass
Until it's bleeding new jokes
Making Monty Python choke

I'm an unusual man with unusual taste
If you cook up something good
I'll make sure it goes to waste

Now about that loan
It'll cost you three pints
of wine
Interjected with some full blooded crime

Wishing I wasn't here anymore
Wishing I wasn't here anymore

Breaking stones
with your long john bones
Giving up prostitutes
on the microwave loans

Taking shimmy jimmies in
on a Saturday night
Coasting on good luck
with the facts on a Lite-Brite

Living on the edge
Living on the edge
Living on the edge
Living on the edge
Track Name: Grandfather
I turned to them in the sky
and I asked "where you going?"
They looked at me and smiled
and said, "where I belong"

Go with the flow

Where did they leave me all to the world?
In its many places...
A flow isn't there unless something is flying
and a river can't remain without a rise

Turn to where they stand, and I will make it all together
But now I have no guiding hands to call me
on the lies to never, I shall fry

Grandfather, why did you leave me to myself and the world?
Grandfather, why did you leave us all in hell?

I turned to them and said that I knew he was
But I really didn't know I just wanted to pretend like I did
Feeling so ready

Turn the gates open sideways and see where they want to go
I know that they hear me scream for his name
To let me know where to go

Tired of these other false prophets leading me to shame
and if I had a say in the matter I would never have let him dig his own grave, no

Grandfather, why did you leave this world alone the way?
Grandfather, why did you leave me with everything?
