Track Name: Disco Eyes
I feel it breaking apart now
Shards of glass in the place of your eyes
You never wanted me
and i guess i never wanted you
We were just spinning lights
Looking for a mirror
To bounce light off back into ourselves

But there's no dancing when there's no disco ball
and there's no chances once you've left the hall
Well i can't dance to the sound of my is breaking
But i'll be alright
I've gotta try

Bubbles underwater
So you can hear me scream
I'm a mermaid underwater
I'm just trying to breathe

You were my disco ball
You were my bright my shiny
I'll be alright i'll be alright
I've got my light in my eyes

Disco eyes i've got my own disco eyes
Disco eyes much to your surprise
I've got my own light in my eyes i've got my disco eyes
Track Name: Alien
I was walking home from the grocery store
With a bag of groceries
That i got at the grocery store
and you appeared you were on my street
The street that i live on
What are you doing on the street that i live on
You asked me HEY CAN I HELP YOU
You asked me HEY CAN I HELP YOU with that bag of groceries?
Because they look really heavy (and it was)

There was something different about you
There was something different about you and your glowing eyes
What's in your glowing eyes?
They were radioactive green
They were radioactive i felt funny on the inside
When i looked into those green eyes
I said: where did you come from?
You said: don't worry about it babe-
I'm from outer space i come from the solar system

i didn't know what to do, i'd never met an alien before
all i could say was:
can i hold your hand? your little alien hand?
let me be your friend, your little alien girlfriend
(that would be so cool, yeah)

we took a walk on the beach at night
we took a walk on the beach under starry skies
it was like so beautiful i had to cry
your eyes were glowing green apple ring pops
your eyes were glowing green apple-
i felt funny on the inside when i looked into your green eyes

i didn't know what to do i didn't know how to think i didn't know how to act all i could say to you was this really stupid thing which was:
can i hold your hand? your little alien hand? (it's just so cute)
let me be your friend, your little alien girlfriend

i said hey: let's go back to my place
we can watch television and eat Hot Pockets
but you said: i gotta go back to space
i've got a 3o'clock appointment with a rocket
(yeah right)(no way)

as you waived your little alien hand good-bye
there were tears in my eyes as i started to cry
Track Name: Synthkyss
wweeeeoooohhhwweeeee hahahhahaah & etc.

staring upside down at the city scape
our heads and hands flying over the lake
you are a psycho NOT
you are my psychonauuutttt

birds with wings that flap above and below
a fish that swims underhead, i know
you are a psycho NOT
you are my psychonauuutttt

I LOVE U
and all that U SEEEE
your eyes are brown and they are green
I love you and your thoughts inside my mind
arm cave spelunking, gems we find
I think a thought and your colors change
You get sense and my heart rearranges
You are a psychonauttttttt

Let's go to the corners of our electric brains
feeling fuzzy (feeling fuzzy, yeah)
we'll climb the mountains of what's sane
getting muddy (getting muddy FREAKOUT)

well I'll get messy in my mind with You - ooh -ooh-ah--ooh--oooOoOoh
feel so safe exploring life's weird goo-oooh-oooh-ah-ooh-00OOooHhh

?>??!??!?!?!?!>!?!?!>!??

let's press our heads together
surfing on the waves of our brains FOREVER
how many different way-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ayess
can we mis pronounce miss pronounce our NAAAAMMES?

our mouths are synths when we kiss x infinity
Track Name: R U RTA
i like it when we touch teeth
let's explore this city and see what's underneath
'cause i've got an all-day buspass
and we can ride just as long as it lasts

let's go on all the adventures
we can steal your grandpa's dentures
and we can talk talk talk talk talk with our flappy gums
riding bikes and catching no-see-ums

'cause i've got an all-day buspass
and we can ride just as long as it lasts
Track Name: May I Find U
aaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAA

May i find u in my dreams
May i find u scattered in the leaves
May i find u on john avenue
May i find u living in unbroken tombs

uuuuuuuuuu

We lost each other or rather:
We got carried away
I thought we were safe here together
But now i don't know what to say
In your place was a puddle of gasoline
It was seven long years
More than just a feeling

May i find u
Track Name: the void
the void x 77
Track Name: Yearning
I saw a mountain today
And the mountain, it talked back
It said everything was going okay
And that it would be here for a little while

Not to worry, if you start to feel the pull
Because there's always (always always) time to return
Don't get lost in yearning
Don't get lost in yearning

Has it been that long, could it be that long,
Has it been that long since
We were jumping over
Four-leaf clovers
And catching pollen
With our tongues

It was the longest fall, the longest fall, the longest fall it seemed
It lasted forever
And now my head's upside down
And I've got to SCREAM

Don't get lost in yearning

Don't get lost in yearning/ you're burning/ you're hitting the ground
You're falling/ you're crawling/ Your head's upside down
And now my head's upside down
And I've got to SCREAM

Oohm shalalala
Track Name: How Can You Love What Is Perfect?
[Choir of Perfection]

Even though your teeth are so white
and i can't see past the light
I still like you
and just because you're the mostly perfect thing that i have ever seen
and i don't like this feeling
I still like you

and even if i can't take you serious
Because you sit so pristine and glamorous
I still like you
and just because i've got a bit more Chin Fuzz
I guess i'm jealous?
I still like you

and even though you never seem to know where do you wanna go
Out to dinner
I still like you
and just because sometimes it gets so dark inside that i can't see
Past the light
I still like you

but

How can you love what is perfect?

[AND SO, THE THREE HEROES OF “HALF AN ANIMAL” EMERGED VICTORIOUS FROM THEIR PSYCHIC BRAIN PRISON OF THE ENIGMA THAT IS: PERFECTION. THE TRIUMPHANT TRIO: BETH, MARCIA, AND ALEC, FINALLY AND CONFIDENTLY CAME TO A CLIMACTIC CONCLUSION CONCERNING THE CURRENT CULMINATION OF CONSUMMATION AND ITS CRUSH. THE ANSWER, IN TRUE FASHION, IS SIMPLE: EXACTLY HOW CAN YOU LOVE WHAT IS PERFECT?]
{You can't.}

do-do-dodo-do-do-dodo-do

How can you love what is perfect?

How can you love what is perfect? Perfection is fleeting.
How can you love what is perfect? Perfection is fluid.
How can you love what is perfect?
How can you love what is perfect?

Don't give up the fight.
Don't lose your friends to stupid fights.
Because they're the ones that are worth fighting for.
