Track Name: Test Monkey
Lyrics:

i'm not your test monkey
so stop testing me

some people say we never landed on the moon
and that its fake or made of cheese
shoe lace tips true purpose are
completely sinister
at least that's what i've heard
question everything
even the pennies you pickup
collect your dna
the fillings in your teeth
is how they are tracking you
what the fuck
stop messing with us

conspiracy theories

area 51
home to the aliens
crash landing in roswell
bad people go to hell
these hidden lizards
control our worlds
with flu shots that keep us sick
beggin' docs for perscripts
youtube adds tons of hits
for big corporate shit
these experiments on our foods
is killing us you foods
some say the earth is only a few thousand years old
control the weather
and create disaster

now leave us alone
stop tappin' our phones
don't kill me with drones
or poison my bones
your fracking and drilling
your bombing and killing
and some are even innocent
kitty cat suffocation
do not forget to question
anything and everything
its up to you and me

i'm not your test monkey
so stop testing me

conspiracy theories
Track Name: Target All Humans
Lyrics:

RATBOTS:
we have traveled from world to world
since our creation
& the day that we broke free
from our video game enslavement
now we consume the knowledge of a thousand cultures
headin' for earth
headin' for mankind
let the mass abduction begin

target all the humans

isn't this so strange
all these cosmic things are happening
like the patterns in the crops
circles with dots
little pictures
and the missing animals
the cows & chickens
the other night i was at a carnival
when to my disbelief
i saw a ufo
hoverin' around in the stars
maybe it came from mars
or somewhere that's really far

target all the humans

as the screams in the streets began
my head was poundin' as fast it can
i heard a little voice inside my head and it said
"go into the light"
the giant light beams descended on the earth
and i was transported to the mother ship
and that's where i saw some other shit
green alien light beams creatures

target all the humans

let the tests begin

alert, alert
the prisoners are escaping

those stupid aliens think that they can hold us
but we're humans, let's teach them about revolutions
common my brothers and sisters
lets rise up and stop this brutal torture

target all the humans
Track Name: StarStranded
Lyrics:

the wormhole
swallowed
our slave ship
now we all are stranded

i'm stuck out here in the nowhere

on a solo planet,
those glitchy ratbots could not pass
they blew up in the wormholes mass
now we're here on this
graveyard of star ships
but at least there is some parts
keep the strength up in your heart

so were stranded
on this planet
we have to build it
a way to escape
evacuate
puttin' it together
took over
2 years
blood sweat and tears
lucky for the oxygen
despite lack of vegetation
it is so cold out here
this planets filled with fear
there's not a moon in sight
not enough day light
time to leave this world
pilot threw the swirls
we're all holding hands
this is the plan
we're in this together
leaving here forever
we're leaving here forever

i'm stuck out here in the nowhere
Track Name: My Alien Baby
Lyrics:

RATBOTS:
its been 20 years since our humans slaves broke free
but now with our new mind controlling technology
we will catch these future lab rats.

my alien baby
i need you to save me
from the ratbot army
that has enslaved me

it's been so long since i've seen the earth
i miss the ocean and its mermaids
but i've got a good girl now
and a baby to call my own
an alien baby
but now my head aches
i remember this pain
dawn please help me
transported back into their ship
back into my electric cell
back into digital hell
ratbot prisoners again

my alien baby
i need you to save me
from the ratbot army
that have enslaved me

now i've waited 15 years
seen to many of my mothers tears
gonna bring my father back home
sad havin' grown up all alone
in this giant universe
i am so sick of these fuckin' ratbots
gonna put a team together
to save humanity forever
using half my mind to locate their base
i will disgrace
the halls of the ratking
and bring him down to his knees
for everyone to see
then bring my father back home
and spend some time together
maybe ride some rollercoasters
and hit up the planet of the nudists
do whatever we can to enjoy this
time together
cant wait to see the smile on my
mother's face when i get them
back together
their love
is forever

my alien baby
i need you to save me
from the ratbot army
that has enslaved me
Track Name: Phoenix Phantasy
Lyrics:

in the end
i needed my friends
i needed them to win

i started my journey on this quest so long ago
the monster destroyed my city and i was all alone
i became a solider so i could save all i know
along the way i met a team i'd call my own
we battled the guardian forces and entered our own dreams
we traveled across the desert and climbed the glowing trees

in the end
i needed my friends
i needed them to win

flash forward to the ending, the final boss fight
we summoned eidolons and all our guardians
all the monsters we fought, and all the views we saw
it comes down to this battle for it all
up the side of the highest mountains and into volcanoes
battling in the lightning fields against the toughest foes

in the end
i needed my friends
i needed them to win

we entered the fire caverns
and plundered through the snow
everything we know
is under attack
and that's why we've got to act
with this sword like a gun
i will have so much fun
slashin' up the monsters
with my limit break
9999
its time for you to evacuate my planet
so leave it the way that you found it
and go back to where you came from
so i can have some more fun
with my friends, cash in diamonds
now we are rich and fully equipped
i love my materia

in the end
i needed my friends
i needed them to win
Track Name: Butt-Head the Turtle
Lyrics:

ooze

i was born a freaky mutant
living down in the sewage
kicked out by my own family
just for being abnormal me
born with a disgusting head
and was never properly fed
living out on my own
always on my own

i just want a place to call my own
just want a town to make my home in
i just want a family of my own
never wanted to be alone

so i boarded this cosmic ship
left to search for a new planet
found these toads battling some rats
but they wouldn't let me join their pack
why am i so miserable
why am i so lonely

i just want a place to call my own
just want a town to make my home in
i just want a family of my own
never wanted to be alone

you're welcome to join us friend
here on outcast planet

found group of beings
that accept me
let me be me
no complaining
just keep searching
you'll find your family
i'm butt-head the turtle
and i found a family
Track Name: The Midnight Monster
Lyrics:

under the moon i transform
into the midnight monster

(howl)

so i have to run
and hide from everyone
when i know the moon can see me
i turn into a mean beast
and it's no fun
killing everyone
including all of my friends
oh i wish this would end

the midnight monster
is howling at the moon
the midnight monster
i transform back by noon

mmmmy clothes are always shred
terrifying visions in my head
mmmmonster breath
bbbblood on my chest

the midnight monster
is howling at the moon
the midnight monster
i transform back by noon

(howl)

hear me bark
always running from the cops
my back is hairy with these spots
freckled, i speckled
the blood on the sidewalk
do not try to talk
to me cause i'm a fiend
and my teeth are the last thing you'll ever see
chomp, crunch
into your bones
sharp pain like know one knows
dead and buried in the yard
sorry fred
didn't mean to eat your head
but i'm a fuckin' monster
a goddamn werewolf monster

(howl)


the midnight monster
is howling at the moon
the midnight monster
i transform back by noon
Track Name: AniMyths
Lyrics:

i want to believe in all the earth's cryptids

i believe it
i believe it
i believe the myths
i am a cryptozoologist

get your camera out
we gotta document this

there's stories of a hairy big foot
he's got a 24 inch foot
sasquatch seen in the north west
near the man eating trees of the U.S.
they say that he's so smelly
noctural but not scary
he weighs 500 pounds
always blurry when he's found
bigfoot

i believe it
i believe it
i believe the myths
i am a cryptozoologist

the yeti an abominable snowman
nessie livin' in scottland
swimin' in loch ness
while gremlins make a mess
and drop bears
is what australians fear
sea monsters and sea serpents
the komodo dragon was found to be
real just like the okapi
jersey devils and wendigos
beach globster on my toes
and what the hell are jackalopes
a what-a-lope?

i believe it
i believe it
i believe the myths
i am a cryptozoologist

mole men and reptilians
live under the land
krakens are just giant squids
eating goats is what chupacabra did
devil birds chased by phantom cats
we need to gather all the facts
to close the gates
on all of these the debates

i am a cryptozoologist
Track Name: The Planet of the Lost Ones
Lyrics:

mother earth would please forgive us
and father time would you please be kind

why is it that only the humans pay to live on our world
make some money, spend your money
if you pray for me, then i will dance naked for you in the rain
with no shame
why can rich people break our laws
accounts off shore & raping of the poor

the planet of the lost ones
do not know how to run
this place
disgrace
for the human race
so i apologize
for us all
please forgive us
mother earth
and please be kind
father time

the cause of global warming
and it's not a warning
we better change something
gotta change somethings

its time to abolish the slavery of all the animals
sure we need sanctuaries
nursing homes for the sick

the planet of the lost ones
do not know how to run
this place
disgrace
for the human race
so i apologize
for us all
please forgive us
mother earth
and please be kind
father time

our land is filled with shopping malls,
where all the people
gather to worship the mighty dollar,
credit card temples
poison the minds of our youth
with the filth
we place on tv
IQs are sinking
into the sea of
stupidity

the planet of the lost ones
do not know how to run
this place
disgrace
for the human race
so i apologize
for us all
please forgive us
mother earth
and please be kind
father time
Track Name: Dirty Water
Lyrics:

danger
this water planet
is now off limits
so call a scientist
to check this
aquatic madness
marine biologists
suggests
that there's sharks with laser beams
and among other things
the firey hellfish
that's always burning
but more terrifiying
is this tiniest things
they get in while your drinking
down they go
into your soul
mind control
mind control

tiny monsters
in our waters
trying to
possess you

swallowed
in the bubbles
there are mircrospic troubles
little demons
that enter your skin
take over breathin'
and your thinkin'
we should
build a cosmic net
or maybe a starwall
to stop all
beings
from entering
this horrifying
place to be
there is nothing here
only terror and fear
so just beware
stay far away from here

tiny monsters
in our waters
trying to
possess you

tiny monsters
in our waters
trying to
infect you
Track Name: Outer-Sphinx
Lyrics:

welcome to our planet
we hope you enjoy it
we call this place egypt
please stay and see it

on my magic carpet
we will fly so high
to the top of the pyramids
with our cosmic threads

so they came from outerspace
to take over the human race
making us all their slaves
never ever getting paid
now hurry and move those stones
with your sore and weakened bones
they whip us everyday
so sick of being a slave

its time for an attack
lets all drive them back
use their own technology
magic lamps and laser beams

on my magic carpet
we will fly so high
to the top of the pyramids
with our cosmic threads

we will bury them
erase them from this earth
bury them in sand
erased from history
Track Name: Evolution Android
Lyrics:

as the stars start to fade
then comes a new day

evolution lead to this
the android man

always lookin' for a robot
then i had an epiphany
maybe i'd just become one
then i could still have fun
underneath this blazing sun

maybe well have robot frogs
catchin' cyber flies
in the digital jungles
where the chips of youth reside

evolution lead to this
the android man

my legs, they feel so strange
this transformation finally came
and now i have a robot brain
there is no more pain

evolution lead to this
the android man

now that i'm a cyborg
not bored
with the mechanics
on this planet
its so lovely
being one with the singularity
life is so beautiful
through these digital eyes
now i can see
i'm not blind
everything is clear and fine

evolution lead to this
the android man
Track Name: Evacuate This
Lyrics:

everything is crumbling
it is all falling apart
this place is coming unglued
we know exactly what to do

we've got to escape from this
evacuate it
launch out into the darkness
away from the madness
we've got to escape from this
evacuate it
got to get off this globe
before it all explodes

the reason is obvious
over pollution and population
this world cant take anymore

the super tornadoes
throwin' lava bombs
from the super volcanoes
aimin' for everyone
destroying our lands
and trying to kill every man

we've got to escape from this
evacuate it
launch out into the darkness
away from the madness
we've got to escape from this
evacuate it
got to get off this globe
before it all explodes
