There's a little ball that floats in space With some tiny specs called the human race As we observe from the nerve endings fixed to our brains It appears that we're not the first to invade Who pointed these missiles with Earth as their aim? It may sound insane But from what we've determined It's Earth versus the Earthmen With arms extended across the skies Planning for the planet to be pulverized Let's go back home Turn this ship around Because what goes up Must come down

Growing Mold 02:28
A centipede scurries along Water skeeters skitter on the pond The wind carries a seed A sparrow builds a nest with some twigs A snails chews on a leaf A flea hops on a cat A human being Being and nothing but that Growing mold in my heart Growing mold in my brain Growing mold all around me It's eating me away In my room, a dark and dusty hole Gilligan's done it again and I lost my remote control But when I get out of bed, I'll never waste time again I'll break the door open and the sun will burst in Growing mold in my heart Growing mold in my brain Growing mold all around me It's eating me away

Stitch Me Up 01:21
Well I'm falling apart or so it seems Got a broken heart tearing at the seams All tattered up from being dragged around Polyethylene trails across the ground So won't you stitch me up? Stitch me up Stitch me up Make me feel like new I'm hoping you Get out your needle and your thread And sew the eyeball on my head So I won't be too blind to see The beauty right in front of me Stitch me up Stitch me up Make me feel like new I'm hoping you
