Track Name: I Can't Figure You Out
1st Verse:
You're a complicated beautiful mess,
dwelling between a certainty and educated guess,
But nevertheless, your mystery compels me,
and I'm beginning to wonder whether it's healthy,
To throw spaghetti at the wall, see if it sticks,
Study your every move I need to learn what makes you tick
Like I'm sick, and you're a condition I need to cure,
So much escapes me but this I know for sure...
You and I are made of elements cast
from a champagne supernova billions of years in the past,
the Higgs Field gave it mass,
physics begat chemistry begat biology begat your crazy ass,
And now I'm dealing with this task that I've got,
See i don't believe or disbelieve I know or I do not,
So I'm forming an hypothesis, looking for clues,
questions had answers until I met you

I've racked my brain I've agonized,
It doesn't matter I,
Can't figure you out baby

I grind but you ain't satisfied,
It doesn't matter I,
Can't figure you out baby

2nd Verse:
You're a complicated beautiful mess,
dwelling between a certainty and educated guess,
but nevertheless, your mystery compels me,
to be skeptical of the things that you tell me,
Your orbit is erratic and so inconsistent,
one minute you're close the next minute you're distant,
I affix my telescope keeping you in my sights,
and hear the Doppler effect as you pass through the night,
Then work on equations until the sun's rising,
in the grip of your gravity falling past the event horizon,
your elaborate disguises,
make me want to map your genome let it be known,
There's more stars in the sky than grains of sand on earth,
but when lost inside your eyes my mind just won't work,
so I'm building a theory, piecing together clues,
questions had answers until I met you.


You're an enigma sowing the seeds of doubt,
and I still can't figure you out

Track Name: The Way of the Doh Doh
1st Verse:
Shot From the womb like a bullet from a gun,
Take a few dozen trips around the sun and we're done.
Enjoy the ride because there's little to protect us,
From global annihilation over breakfast.

Verse Bridge:
Fragile and tenuous,
particles dancing in space,
The time will come when we'll look in the sky
and we'll know that it's our time to go....

And we'll be gone,
Gone the way of the doh doh

2nd Verse:
And you can pray to gods,
we ain't the apple of their eye.
The meaning of this life,
is whatever we decide
Survival is the exception, extinction is the rule,
and if you think we're immune to that then you would be a fool.
