Space Stopped being so fun I Thought your mom was the one She's Queen in space why Did you're dad ever flee Gone with a rocket blast on a two ton tank going through deep space time is the one who kills Years go by with a whack through the age of steel I have learned to feel growing dead behind plates Circuit smiles fate I wanna fit into a space above my current altitude I want to take your ears and make a tiny british Commonplace I want to spend a year... a year that costs a lot.... I want to see you smile and see the stars with me Crashing through the solar system blasting techno beats Is kind of what it's like when you sit and talk with me your shiny metal finger strike sequential sets of keys Your flashing neon eyes turn me rainbow shades with glee I never found ones and zeroes proper ways to say I really can't run through my cycles when you roll away It's magnetrons, and lightening bolts, and glitches all in one When you leave the random things can't give me any fun maybe if you watch my button flicker flash all day You'll see where manufactured alike in many different ways I'll radio a man who can wheel us through the dirt And maybe if we're lucky we'll see the planets EXPLODE Round This gentle Sphere I Would love to ride a bear A robotic bear with missile teeth and big red eyes that see a lot ....and when I put him to bed, I'll make sure to tuck him in real good ....To try and keep his thoughts away from the robot's haunted woods... ....In his dreams he'll frolic about with his solar paneled friends .... Life for me could be complete if I could only... LIVE with a Bear!!!

Growing up seemed pretty easy When my mother told me magic protected me That I didn't need to worry But my imagination led to complications and I couldn't sleep at night It's the things you believe and the things that you've been shown And the things you know to say you knew because nobody knows any more And when you walk a while by the water how you see more of the world And how it moves and how it curves Living right now has been easy But my obligations will find it hard to hear I don't know how I'll get things do today All I wanna do is go outside and play So I stopped here in the city Trying to find a million reasons to leave I found my friends and my fortunes Came to me to stay when they could play around my world It's the things they conceive and the people they have known And the things they cry that make you cringe and bolt your ears to the floor And when they start to work they'll start to see a whole new way To be numb from boredom in this world Twenty four hours will pass And they'll have enough and start to sing a soft refrain to the door I don't know how I'll get things do today All I wanna do is go outside and play

Flew to New York Fell in love in Boston Stared at me with coals Ohh that's hot Now I want to see her Now it seems so silly I think it's about time I got up and got out Imagined my home as a golden garden With fruit and flowers And veggies and trees I needed a bird big enough to carry my bones To see the stars From the homes of angels So Seattle it welcomed me back The hills and mountains Seemed to sing to me. They sang, "Please don't leave us again." I said, "No I can't 'Cause you You make me wild You make me wild Like a little child I think I'll stay awhile." Oh Rainier she is my dear When I see her slopes I sweat I swoon She doesn't like to come out when it's rainy But when she glitters in the sun My heart it flutters I never found a place even when it's pouring That refuses to quit or admit it's boring We can find a hilly path going right to the sea You have to believe This is where you're meant to be Get here right next to me You got a real good habit of saying the right thing And a real good mind for eyeing the truth

Downtown 03:20
You and me we fell from two trees Rolled downhill through the gardens Tried to come up with solutions To learn to have some patience When I grabbed and pulled you down the street You bit your lip and said no big deal I never thought I'd snap and throw chains Never thought you'd think it's all fair Now it's time to see our mothers And make sure they're not a bother I'll take her out to see a movie You'll take her down to see your town Down to see your town. Downtown! Took a tour of a tall tower Saw one flight circle for hours Started thinking man this ain't good I need some tasty hot food When I'm hungry I am a monster Eat anything fine to dumpster I seem to sense a little rumbly It's a big bellow in my tumbly And it's time to feel relieved now I can laugh so easy somehow I think it's time to kill those frowns I think it's time to see my town
I'm the wizard pulling fireworks from air I know you'll stop an stare Now I'm the champion of playing silly games You know they're all the same I feel I'm every little story that I see And every melody Humming softly and I echo through the hall It's mine but it sounds like Paul's Well John lied the Walrus was me And my mother was Eleanor Rigby And the Fool on the Hill just watched me bleed All of these tunes that I hear That perpetually ring in my ears Yeah they're blurring the lines between my mind and what's outside Well I tossed around the questions in my head Beat em all to death I Tried to figure out exactly who I am Tried to sift through all the damn lies I can't seperate myself from what I've seen At least not completely But I'm aware enough to know that I can choose To change my point of view Well John lied the Walrus was me And my mother was Eleanor Rigby And the Fool on the Hill just watched me bleed All of these tunes that I hear That perpetually ring in my ears I need take a second to think in front of mirror Hey buddy do I know you And what the hell are you doing in my bathroom I thought I ditched you late in the nineties Is that face what everybody else sees?

The Hoot Hoots Seattle

Seattle power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots are irresistible party starters. Their songs are powered by fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keyboards, and headhum-inducing hooks, and all these combine in a glorious, slightly insane energy in both their live shows and in their newest album, Colorpunch. ... more
