Track Name: Unconditional
I'd love you even if we
were being chased by a horde of zombies.
I'd never leave you behind.
I'd take a bullet for you,
with a medpack I'd take two
in a post-apocalyptic world of strife.
Wanna share my bunker with you
for the rest of my life.

If I'm Mario, be my Luigi.
I want you here, right beside me,
not out of reach like Princess Peach:
Perpetual kidnappee.
We're like Batman and Robin,
peanut butter and jam,
like Fallout and cans of Spam.

I'd love you even if we
were separated by a thousand lackies
of a dark wizard who took you away. (Heeyeyey)
I'd beat eight dungeons for you,
in the light world, the dark one too.
Face down with Ganon in that final fight.
Wanna share the kingdom with you
for the rest of my life.

It's a bird, yeah, it's a plane.
Without you I'm like Deadpool: half insane.
Oh, I need you like my companion cube,
like Spiderman needs Mary-Jane, yeah.
Don't care if you keep, hyphenate or take my name,
'cause I've found the perfect partner
and life is a two player game.

I'd love you even if we
had to go to Tatooine,
and save your ass from gangsters run by a slug.
I'd fight a Rancor for you.
With a blaster, I'd fight two.
Sneak in and save you from that carbonite.
Wanna share the falcon with you
for the rest of my life.

I'm not a lone hero no more.
This ring's the golden key that unlocks that final door.

I'd love you even if we
were kept apart by some timey-wimey
rug-like stuff that -- oh never mind.
I'd face an armada for you,
regenerate and then face two.
Our love will last 'til the end of time.
Wanna share the Tardis with you
for the rest of my life.

I'd love you even if we
were being chased by a horde of zombies.
I'd never leave you behind. (No no no no)
I'd take a bullet for you.
Pass that medpack and I'd take two.
In a post-apocalyptic world of strife.
Wanna share my bunker with you,
Wanna share my bunker with you,
Wanna share it all with you
for the rest of my life.

Track Name: Elven Girl
The first time I laid eyes on you, you glowed
With a bright white inner light.
Said it was a spell you'd cast on yourself
But I was the one enspelled that night.

Got to know you, learned you'd been born
Child of two peoples and two cities.
Daughter of the exiled Ashkel
Come to stay with the Lirasi.

I see you elven girl,
don't you know you rock my world
But you left a long long time ago.
When I see you Elven girl,
you still set my heart awhirl.
How you been? I'd like to know.
Said how you been, I'd like to know.

I know you don't care 'bout candies or flowers
Know you don't give a damn about looks
I know you can see that knowledge is power
Man's gonna woo you, man’s gonna need some books

Conduct yourself with a quiet sort of faith
And a calm I find enlightening
But underneath that pretty face
Lies a spirit white as lightning

I see you elven girl,
don't you know you rock my world
But you left a long long time ago.
When I see you Elven girl,
you still set my heart awhirl.
How you been? I'd like to know.
I said how you been, I'd like to know.

Nearly broke my heart, when we said goodbye
And then I saw you on that street.
Hoped I'd grown from the boy that you knew
Into the man you'd want to meet.


When I see you elven girl,
don't you know you rock my world
But you left a long long time ago.
Now I see you Elven girl,
you still set my heart awhirl.
How you been I'd like to know.
Said how you been I'd like to know.
Track Name: Everything is Fine
Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep my problems out of sight,
well I keep them out of mind.
Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep my problems out of sight,
well they can't hurt friends of mine.

Remember the time I got bit by the snake god?
Well I've begun to shed my skin.
Please someone help me know what’s happened to me
I wanna know the trouble I’m in.

Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep my problems out of sight,
well I keep them out of mind.
Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep my problems out of sight,
well they can't hurt friends of mine.

I sold my organs to a band of demons,
They gave me powers I don’t understand.
I know one day they’ll have something to ask of me,
And on that day I’ll be their man.

But two's not SO bad...

Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep two problems out of sight,
well I keep them out of mind.
Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep two problems out of sight,
well they can't hurt friends of mine.

Remember the rock we found in the chasm?
The geode with the quiet glow?
When I look into it it shows me things
and they're not things I wanna know...
Whew.

Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep three problems out of sight,
well I keep them out of mind.
Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep three problems out of sight,
well they can't hurt friends of mine.

Everything is fine (Everything is fine)
Everything's alright (Everything's alright)
If I can just keep three problems out of sight,
they can't hurt friends of mine.
Track Name: Grow Up and Be Good People
Do not fear the monsters under your bed,
Only fear the monsters in your head.
Sleep my child and wake to a bright day.
It’ll all be yours one day.

I’ve done my best to make a world that’s kind,
Though I cannot promise peace of mind.
We’ve come so far, there’s still a long, long way.
It’ll all be yours one day.

Close your eyes and sleep without a care.
Don’t dream about the burdens that you’ll bear.
The shoulders you stand on have feet of clay,
But it’ll all be yours one day.

I’m already sorry for all of the worry,
For a world in complete disarray.
One day I’ll be gone, you’ll be all on your own.
It’ll all be yours one day.

I will keep watch over you at night,
Gird you for the battles that you’ll fight
With song and sword and pen you’re in the fray,
and it’ll all be yours one day.

I hope when you grow up that you’ll stand tall.
And stop to help another when they fall.
I pass the torch so you can light the way,
It’ll all be yours one day.
Track Name: Not Mine
I can't let you go;
you have always been free.
Love is not a lock and key,
it's an open door
to find the path we need.

We each sing our own songs.
Each unique melody,
Is just a part in a symphony.
Love's not unison,
it's harmony.

I am not yours,
and you are not mine,
but we're in this together.
Love's an adventure,
Let's see what we find.
We'll blaze this trail forever.

Lovers may move on,
but I'll always be here
to hold your hand and dry your tears.
We'll always share our dreams,
our hopes, our fears.

I am not yours,
and you are not mine,
but we're in this together.
Love's an adventure,
Let's see what we find.
We'll blaze this trail forever.

In head first,
I think we'll make it.
Don't know how,
But we can fake it.
Love knows no bounds
no matter what they say.
We'll be okay.

I am not yours,
and you are not mine,
but we're in this together.
Love's an adventure,
Let's see what we find.
We'll blaze this trail forever.

There is just one thing
that has always been true.
There's room in my heart for you.
Let's keep creating joy
in all we do.

I am not yours,
and you are not mine,
but we're in this together.
Love's an adventure,
Let's see what we find.
We'll blaze this trail forever.

We’re in this together.
We’ll blaze this trail forever.
Track Name: Last Summer
On a sunlit summer street,
We walk together in the heat,
Our hearts touch when our fingers meet, in a world all our own
The schoolyard in the afternoon,
We laugh and smile, our hearts in tune
The streetlights turn on far too soon, I have to go home.

The stars above, shine on our love
They burn. We burn.
Sunrise, first light on you and I,
It burns. We burn.

No summers without stormy days
Tempers flash and thunder rage,
We sit apart and curse the rain, the day is growing cold.
Darkness falls it holds no fear,
For in the night the sky is clear.
Though we’re apart, our hearts are near; we hold each other close.


The stars above, shine on our love
They burn. We burn.
Sunrise, first light on you and I,
It burns. We burn.

The ice cream store on the corner,
We split a cone for a dollar,
and I taste your lips,
In a butterscotch kiss,
How I wish
That summer
Was here again

The stars above, shine on our love
They burn. We burn.
Sunrise, first light on you and I,
It burns. We burn.

We laughed and smiled and played pretend,
Threw our names into the wind,
Like all good things, our summer ends, you had to go away.
Didn’t cry,
Didn’t say goodbye,
We begged the sky for one more day.

The stars above, shine on our love
They burn. We burn.
Sunrise, first light on you and I,
It burns. We burn.
We burn.
We burn.
Track Name: SCIENCE
It’s human nature I reckon,
That drives our discovery
Our imagination
And our curiosity.

A universe out there we gotta know,
Grab that problem, never let go
We’re doing science (Science!), yeah
Gonna understand the universe.
It’s alright, yeah it’s alright
We’re doing science (Science!), yeah
Gonna understand the universe
One piece at a time

You get that hypothesis,
Turn into theory…
Find the truth not just building things,
That’s engineering…

Ancients looked at the stars, wondered what they’d see
Now we’re way past the moon, unravelling mystery

We’re doing science (Science!), yeah
Gonna understand the universe
It’s alright, yeah it’s alright
We’re doing science (Science!), yeah
Gonna understand the universe
One piece at a time

Been a long journey,
No tellin’ how far we’ll go…
Deepest trench in the ocean
Telescopes made for radio

Never gonna stop doing science!
We can see further, from the shoulders of giants!

We’re doing science (Science!), yeah
Gonna understand the universe
It’s alright, yeah it’s alright
We’re doing science (Science!), yeah
Gonna understand the universe
One piece at a time
Track Name: Lady Killer
To get by in this world, you need man, they say.
Well, I’ve got no shortage looking my way
But I’m very particular about my type.
Say you want a man’s affections, you gotta earn ‘em.
Nah; the way to his heart is straight through the sternum.
That man'll love you the rest of his life.

You’d think that’d stop gentlemen comin’ around,
I’ve been courted by near every man in this town.
One even asked me to be his wife,
Then I took out my second best knife.
I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
But you know, I’ve got a reputation.

I need a man who’s got my back,
Or I’ll bury him in the garden in a burlap sack
Right beside the turnips and the peas.
He’ll find his final resting place there
Next to the doctor, and on top of the mayor.
He’ll regret coming by and sayin’ “darlin’, please”.


You’d think that’d stop gentlemen comin’ around,
I’ve been courted by near every man in this town.
One even asked me to be his wife,
Then I took out my second best knife.
I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
But I'm not even under investigation.

I need a man who’ll tend to my roses,
Or I’ll put a space on his face where his nose is.
One who won’t spout tired lines at me
One said my eyes were like blue pools of wonder,
So we went to the ocean and I held him under.
Said that he’d always wanted to visit the sea.

You’d think that’d stop gentlemen comin’ around,
but I’ve been courted by near every man in this town.
One even asked me to be his wife,
Then I took out my second best knife.
I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
They think I should be flattered by their “Dedication”.

Not lookin' for someone who's my kind of villain,
I just want somebody I don’t feel like killin’
Won’t come by my gate to waste my time.
Someone who's honest and plain,
I’d hesitate before causin’ him pain.
Just speak your mind, we’ll get along just fine.
Track Name: EZ Mode
When you talk about the leaderboards I'm nothing but bored, I'm not in it for the glory--I'm in it for the shiny swords! When I say I get achievements, I mean I understand you. I never got one, nor do I plan to. And yes I'm a gamer too, thank you! I stand true blue in my Sonic underoos.

On mobile, console, and PC
I beat a hundred thousand games.
All on easy.
You're cranking up the difficulty, for me it’s lemon squeezy,
One-handed in my hammock,
just taking it easy

Some people call me casual, but I'm not bashful, I'm actual. I played it all, from Mass Effect to Castleville. Played it well, by the means that I measure, made it to the end, who cares about the treasure? I’m in it for the pleasure, no stress, don't try to impress, just move on to the next.

On mobile, console, and PC.
I beat a hundred thousand games.
All on easy.
You're cranking up the difficulty, for me it’s lemon squeezy,
One-handed in my hammock,
just taking it easy.
I'm taking it easy.

I’m an exile, hangin’ with the hard cores, see the high scores “There’s mine where’s yours?”
But I don’t care for that kind of attitude, I can save the president, don’t have to be the baddest dude. Some of those pros like to heckle, brag they’re a monster Mr. Hyde, I’m a happy Dr. Jekyll.

On mobile, console, and PC.
I beat a hundred thousand games.
All on easy.
You're cranking up the difficulty, for me it’s lemon squeezy,
One-handed in my hammock,
just taking it easy.
I'm taking it easy.
Taking it easy.
Track Name: Rain-Slick Streets
I see the rain slick streets
of the city at night, and you’re out there.
I’m at my window,
waiting to see your car streaking by.

I’d be yours if you’d let me.
I’d stand by your side,
we’d glide through the night.
Trust me,I know who you are,
the man behind the mask.

I love your strength and patience;
a beautiful mind, no one compares.
Crusading for justice,.
the night’s not the only ally you’ll find.

I’d be yours if you’d let me.
I’d stand by your side,
we’d glide through the night.
Trust me,I know who you are,
the man behind the mask.

Innocence lost,
rain pouring down,
burdened with grief,
pearls on the the ground.

I know your tragic past,
you never leave it behind, but you’re not alone.
I’ve been in your place.
I know your pain, and I love you still.

I’d be yours if you’d let me.
I’d stand by your side,
we’d glide through the night.
Trust me,I know who you are,
the man behind the mask.
I know who you are...
Batman.
Track Name: Hermione
When we both started out,
Said you don’t know what wizards do.
Well I’m a muggleborn,
I’m in the same boat as you.
My mom’s a dentist,
And so’s my dad,
So you can just imagine
How much wizard prep I had.

I won’t do your fuckin’ homework, why don’t you try?
You’re the one who always said you’re such a smart and clever guy.
I won’t do your fuckin’ homework, go fuck yourself.
You might be the chosen one,
But I'm your house elf.

Don’t get the wrong impression,
When I was petrified
I was closing on that mystery
And I didn’t need you guys.
I see you left me your papers,
You think that I won’t mind,
But even with the Turner,
I just can’t find the time.

I won’t do your fuckin’ homework, why don’t you try?
You’re the one who always said you’re such a smart and clever guy.
I won’t do your fuckin’ homework, go fuck yourself.
You might be the chosen one but
I ain’t your house elf.

Ask me where I learned to dance,
At the Hogwart’s Ball.
Yes I saw the jealous glance
Of Ron across the hall.
I know you’re always saying,
I’m the girl that has no fun,
But listen up here boy who lived,
I’m the girl that gets shit done.

I won’t do your fuckin’ homework, why don’t you try?
You’re the one who always said you’re such a smart and clever guy.
I won’t do your fuckin’ homework, go fuck yourself.
You might be the chosen one but
I ain’t your house elf.
Track Name: Art Harder
We all know that art is hard, that’s why it’s not for you.
It always takes a trained elite with decades spent in school.
It’s a miracle of talent, with not an ounce of skill,
If you can’t make art when you’re born it’s safe to say you never will.
Still...maybe…

Write that novel, paint that thing, the whole world wants to hear you sing.
Step out of the shower and hit the stage.
Each piece shows a different part, humanity is built on art.
Your name is written on that page.

The first verse was a lie of course, as you can plainly see.
You can make all the art you want, it’s as easy as can be.
A novel’s just a bunch of words, comics ink just splashed around.
Even the greatest symphonies are just a pile of sounds.
So maybe...

Write that novel, paint that thing, the whole world wants to hear you sing.
Step out of the shower and hit the stage.
Each piece shows a different part, humanity is built on art.
Your name is written on that page.

The second verse also lied; art is beyond difficult.
It can push you to your limits, and drive you madly critical.
In this game of skill and time, there’s one thing to remember:
Practice never perfect makes, but it always makes you better.

There’ll be people who try to make you feel ashamed,
Self-conscious, nervous or even afraid.
Don’t listen for a minute, pull the pin on your art grenade.
Call the thunder from the heavens, say “Show me what you've made!”

Write that novel, paint that thing, the whole world wants to hear you sing.
Step out of the shower and hit the stage.
Each piece shows a different part, humanity is built on art.
Your name is written on that page.

Art can take up all your time, your wit and all your courage.
The third verse didn’t lie a bit, and neither did the bridge.
But art will also build you up and show you who you are.
The world awaits, so grab your pen, and make some fuckin' art.
So maybe...
So what are you waiting for?

Write that novel, paint that thing, the whole world wants to hear you sing.
Step out of the shower and own that stage.
Each piece shows a different part, humanity is built on art.
Your name is written on,
Your name is written,
Your name is written on that page.
