we are too small for this home, too quiet feel it burning in your bones now feel your skin crawl as the flames leap higher try to resist their call their hunger grows and only breaking you can sate them did you feel the change? the Hellmouth chose us to live the Hell that we created there is no escape the cold you feel will never stop, it's not here it lives deep inside your throat you have about two hundred bones in your body and none of them have a soul if you wake up tomorrow you will never be the same familiar face so how much silence do you think you can take before like us it turns you deaf so take my hand, my friend that way the flames won't hurt as bad and don't look back the shadows don't like to be seen hear the earth call for your flesh, we're not welcome here it consumes us piece by piece like us you're cursed till the end of days, should've ran my dear now the Tug you feel won't cease the Sun goes down and with it we all bury our light so that we last the night forget the one you used to be before you gave in to the dark they won't come back the Sun goes down and with it we all bury our light so that we last the night forget the one you used to be before you gave in to the dark they won't come back

Tigers: You've been there since Day One Through thick and thin and scorpions And we've both seen our share Of nightmare horrors more than once No matter where you play Your eldritch god lights up the night So I wanna thank you For making the underworld so bright and if we're living or dead who can really tell Sunbeams You're my best friends in hell Sunbeams: You’ve been there since day one Through dark eclipsing of the sun And we’ve both felt despair At fates that we can not out run No matter what we’ve lost We know we’ll always have our stripes So I wanna thaank you For being the heat to warm our light And if there’s no tomorrow Who can really tell Tigers You’re my best friends in hell Both: When they opened the book And the labyrinths and desert shook You were at our side Through all the changes we undertook Sunbeams: You told us don't look back And so we stood in strange new light Tigers: And we will stand with you Both: We have your back in every fight And if the world is ending We can face it together Sunbeams / Tigers You’re our best friends forever Tigerbeams We're best friends forever

He wakes up Sunday In Tennessee and hits the alarm clock He cleans his cleats, ha makes some pancakes for the girls His husband drives him to the airport where the plane is waiting "This is your captain speaking, welcome to our 11 AM flight MEM to the Underworld." He steps up to the plate and checks the bases Zion's on second The Iron Lion ready to go, all speed and chrome And right before the pitch is expelled, He just can't help but think to himself "It sure would be a shame if no-one brought her home." And in the TV, they don't even say his name Home Run Randy's doing it for the love of the game He ain't here for his health, and it sure as hell ain't for fame Home Run Randy's doing it for the love of the game It's the bottom of the eleventh With two men on and two men out, we're tied up The fans are screaming, this is awful, this is great We're begging, Randy All we need is you to hit a single And Randy C just laughs and says, "It's up to fate." And in the papers, they don't print who scored the shame Home Run Randy's doing it for the love of the game He ain't here for his health, and it sure as hell ain't for fame Home Run Randy's doing it for the love of the game The team's all left, he hits the lights on his way out the lockers The press is snapping pics while Aldon Cashy flaunts it And when he walks on by, not one reporter stops to talk to him And Randy smiles 'cause that's just the way he wants it 'Cause his family's cheering and the fans all do the same Home Run Randy's doing it for the love of the game Nobody sung about him 'til this song we're playing Home Run Randy's doing it for the love of the game

Sky comes tumbling down I got to get out of this town Sky comes tumbling down This only happens when I'm around I am a walking disaster, keep away from me You know I really don’t want to make a scene Somehow it happens despite all of my good intent I’m giving up even trying to prevent I know I shouldn't be living in this place at all Send me to space, it's a small world after all For your own safety just lock me up and melt the key 'Cause it's already too long since something happened to me You shouldn't even be listening to this song 'Cause any second now something's gonna go wrong I feel it happening now it's really happening here I go agaiiiiin Sky comes tumbling down I got to get out of this town Sky comes tumbling down This only happens when I'm around You say the Bucket protects, you say we're safe but if my calculation's correct there's a terrif- -ic chance that some cosmic trap is just about to spring And if I'm right then we can’t protect a thing They cheer my name it’s my turn on the mound But they don't know that I shouldn't be around I'm an anomaly, I'm a rip in time and space You're like a family but I don't belong in this place And I don't know if I'll see my kids again I keep on smiling but it's so hard to pretend And now it's happening no Can't stop it happening here I go agaiiiiin Sky comes tumbling down I got to get out of this town Sky comes tumbling down This only happens when I'm around Play it, Fran. But I would take on the gods to set things right I’m choosing not to go down without a good fight Let's make it happen yeah Anything can happen so here we go agaiiiiin Sky comes tumbling down But I might as well stick around Sky comes tumbling down You’ll find me trapped in the lost and found Try to make the best of it Still make a mess of it You know the rest of it So let's divest of it This guilt they make me feel I know it isn't real I'm not responsible I want these monsters all gone

For the first three seasons of Internet League Blaseball, the Crabs were a comically pathetic team. I mean, really terrible. And worst of all, we were only moderately fast. In Season 4, thanks to star hitter Nagomi Mcdaniel, we were playoffs contenders until the end of the regular season, but it still wasn't enough. We were still too slow. Then, in Season 5, everything changed. For the first time in Crabs history, we played in the postseason. We were knocked out in the first round, but that didn't matter. Things were different this time. This time, during the election, the Crabs won 'Zombies, Run! Presents Horde Hallucinations,' improving their Baserunning by 17%. Today, the Baltimore Crabs have the highest baserunning of any team, at an average of 4 stars per player. Had we attempted it in Season 4, or in Season 5, we surely would not have defeated The Peanut. But things have changed. We're Fast Now.

I know that we're supposed to fight but you see - sabotage is classier. we could, say, rig something to blow up or perhaps we’ve slipped a Tues- -day special in your drink: keep an eye out; we could be me we could be you we will be watching. [piano solo] You think we’re sabotaging you? That’s not true - When you find your coffee spiked it's because we know you can't sleep: you needed it, and we take care of our own, ‘cause we fight the same cruel gods we could be me we could be you we will be watching.

Watch me hit a pitch out to left field all my fellow players know I don't yield and when I stop on second it's to snap a selfie quickly then I swim around the bases it's another home run I'm Fish Summer and I'm cooler than you Don’t even try to argue cuz you know it’s true I’m Fish Summer And you wish you were me All the pitchers throw balls When they look at my teeth Careful not to get in my splash zone It’s Moist Talker time for the league throne And when we’re getting beaten all my shirts get eaten Then I bring it back around with another home run I’d apologize for all the trash talk But I don’t know what sorry means, and I rock And when I’m in the frier I simply swallow fire Make the umps retire, then another home run I'm Fish Summer and I’ll rule over you The other players see me and they all feel blue I’m Fish Summer I’m a heluva catch I hit a pitch And the bat snapped in half Let’s stop for a second and assess why I’m best I may have flunked outta school But I pass every test I’m taking a swim While you’re taking a rest I’m working the gym And I’m perfectly dressed I’m so pragmatic I’m amazing and magmatic I’m a blaze of fire ‘round the bases swappin tales and sharing spaces holding hope for an ascension running with the best intentions All - the way - from hell to halifax Let’s take it back: As a kid I was scrawny fish but I had a dream and I had a wish I knew that blaseball was my calling Starting grinding starting hauling ass to make my vision real Learned to swing and learned to steal Now I’m hot from head to heels My at-bats star on highlight reels [The crowd goes wild!] [Spoken:] Thank you, thank you, everyone Well, if you insist You are, just too kind I'm Fish Summer And I’m just that great The crowd goes wild When I step the plate I’m Fish Summer I’m the pride of the team Tigers and Talkers, You know what I mean I'm Fish Summer and I'm cooler than you Don’t even try to argue cuz you know it’s true I’m Fish Summer And you wish you were me Pitchers throw balls When they look at my teeth I’m Fish Summer It’s a hot fish, summer Fish Summer I’m Fish Summer [Spoken:] Hi, my name is Fish Summer, and I am Cooler than you are.

Annie Roland was a faerie knight protector of the wood to Yellowstone she gave her heart for the Magic, gave her blood on that sunny day in Yellowstone the Garages came to town with Jaylen Hotdogfingers cursed pitcher on the mound Jaylen bore a heavy debt From the void she'd returned with incendiary pitches to mark those the umps would burn but Annie walked up to the plate wings fluttering with grace held up her bat and took her stance with a brave smile on her face When the pitch came Annie didn't flinch though the ball struck hard and true and Jaylen shrugged as if to say “there's nothing I could do” so Annie tossed her bat away turned her face toward the sky as the shadow of the moon over the sun began to climb and in the dim eclipse light a rogue umpire drew near eyes glowing red behind its mask but Annie showed no fear She took her silver sword in hand raised it high and struck her foe blood stained the ground a ruddy brown and the umpire's head it rolled the next day Jaylen pitched again in that series for the ages and again the moon turned day to night and the umpires burned with rage But Annie shied not from the plate went to bat with head held high and the ball again struck hard and true when Jaylen let it fly The rogue umpires gathered round Annie watched the horde advance and though she drew her silver sword she knew she was outmatched but then came Jaylen to her side and said “I'll fight with you today-- I never chose this cursed life but this is not your debt to pay.” Their teammates did look on in fear as the umpires swarmed around and in the dim light, blood and dust did hide the battleground but Annie felt her strength again and Jaylen fought as though possessed with wooden bat and silver sword the umps they put to rest and when the moon went on its way golden sunlight then did fall on Annie, silver sword in hand and Jaylen, standing tall

there was a time that your name would conjure fear but once we met, the truth became so clear you couldn't be more welcome by our side even if you might have, an extra limb, or five! within moments we knew the pact was sealed but we weren't prepared for the things we'd feel a sheer sense of wonder, and the strangest thing we were siezed by a desire to dance and sing! (that's right beams! this one comes out from the heart of yellowstone, and goes out to every last one of u!) waves of power radiated from the place where we made our deal, then face to face an impossible moment, a great paradox that stood in defiance of all the gods and when they subsided, calm as can be it was plain as day and anyone could see the harmony between our respective vibes as we gazed into all of your collective eyes (sometimes i wonder, maybe all of this was predestined. you know? like, maybe it was just inevitable) our paths are joined, our fates now linked, and what will happen nobody can say singing from sunbleached mountain peaks that this anti-rivalry is here to stay now united hands in hands we will surely weather this nigh endless day we're the Hellowstone Yellmouths now and we wouldn't have it any other way (and ain't that the truth! you know what? it's a truth worth repeating. so let's go 'round one last time!) our paths are joined, our fates now linked, and what will happen nobody can say singing from sunbleached mountain peaks that this anti-rivalry is here to stay now united hands in hands we will surely weather this nigh endless day we're the Hellowstone Yellmouths now and we wouldn't have it any other way

There is a grove of flowers where the shoes hang from the trees Where violets glitch & stutter, shining atemporally One flower-covered pillar grows from an old Doc Marten boot You can see the laces wrapped around the root Once a thief, always a thief No blaseball player sleeps beneath the earth No restful bed, No restless dead Once a thief, always a thief No matter where you are, when fire swallows you We'll come for you Whose kicks? (Our kicks) Chorus: Esme Ramsey, won't you call us home? Esme Ramsey, I will trouble you no more We fought god, oh we fought god We broke ourselves against the pods And lost First cursed among the chaos Empty shoes & open laces Worn out souls & broken traces So many lost, grist for the gods' mill Burning on, but for the turning wheel God is dead, behold ascension Thick as thieves, beyond our comprehension For the 502, Doyle & Gloom We will see you one day soon Crack the sky, behold the Hall Stars Baltimore is beautiful Scattered loose like teeth When the time comes Just ask yourself whose kicks are these Chorus: Esme Ramsey, won't you call us home? Esme Ramsey, I will trouble you no more

We are the Hall Stars And we answered the call That cantankerous legume Has had its final fourth strike call We fought our friends so we could free them And we fought in your stead But/So why is it we've earned release When there are those who are left dead We are the Hall Stars The Monitor responds We are the Hall Stars Peanuts have paid our bonds We lived, we died, we paid our debt We played this splort to our last breath And now that we’ve transcended death We will answer your call The birds in the air are screaming The gurgies drain our souls Our fates eclipse the Gods above The feedback, feedback takes its toll Our battlecries of fighting Gods Reverbs across the land To bring an end to Discipline We make our final stand We are the Hall Stars The Monitor responds We Are the Hall Stars Peanuts fulfilled our bonds We lived, we died, we paid our debt We played this splort to our last breath And now that we’ve transcended death We will answer your call Jaylen and Alex Can’t make up their minds The batters are hitting dingers The Shelled One’s in a bind Young Kiki hits a homer As Violence takes the field Then Dominic Marijuana Walks it off and makes them yield We are the Hall Stars (We are the Hall Stars) The Monitor responds We Are the Hall Stars (We the Hall Stars) Peanuts fulfilled our bonds We lived, we died, we paid our debt We played this splort to our last breath And now that we’ve transcended death (Oh, we've transcended death) We will answer your call We are the Hall Stars The Pods meet their demise We are the Hall Stars Our teammates stand before our eyes We find release to meet our fate No heaven at that ruby gate We'll leave as you all celebrate We’re craving Five Guys

There burns a bright and solemn fire, Flames a-flicker atop the pyre, A wound where the fragile Veil has thinned Hear the telephones a-ringing? Crows are circling and singing, strands of music woven in the wind Embers rise into the night, glowing shards of fading light, til they are lost among the cold and countless stars Hear the drumming in the distance, steady and insistent, like the beating of a strange and monstrous heart Feel the fiends approaching swiftly in the dark singing Where is your spirit? Where is your song? Where will you stand When it all goes wrong? You think you have power But I know you're weak You think you can win? I will make you weep Where is your spirit? From restless dreams try to awaken Just as all seemed overtaken The waking world and nightmares all the same Beneath the cries of ‘Rest in Violence’ Susurration in the silence: Static in the stands whispering your name Feel the undercurrents pull Reverb rushing in your skull Distant voices calling you to Rise And in the waters, a reflection, An unearthly procession, Torches gleaming in their bright, impassioned eyes Like starlight summoned from the skies singing Where is your spirit? Where is your song? Where will you stand When it all goes wrong? You think you have power But I know you're weak You think you can win? I will make you weep Where is your spirit? Cloaked in ash and dyed with blood Stances shift against the flood Burning eyes, all a-glitter in the gloom The final rays of dying sun Fall upon our loss undone Their countenances like unto an opened tomb The lands of light and void astride The Revenant ever abides A blazing crown upon her fearsome brow is laid Our hope and tribute now her armor No man nor fiend can harm her Though many've fallen by her hand, her debt repaid And before her now the world shall be unmade singing Where is your spirit? Where is your song? We stand together When it all goes wrong You think you have power? I know you’re weak You think you can win? I will make you weep I will never bow to you I will not bend the knee If you're expecting supplication You won't get that shit from me I will never yield You cannot stop me now If you want me off the field You’ll have to strike me down I'll strike you out! Where is your spirit? Free from chains that rent and tore us Still destruction lies before us Stadiums reduced to naught but rot and rust And in our wake unweaves causality Rewoven, strand by strand, as we Arise and revel, dancing in the dust Let the music heal your soul Heed the call and be made whole Raise your voices to the air, like dancing flames Hear the final peal of thunder, as The heavens split asunder, and The Void consumes the gods and all their names And with the world renewed the Season starts again... singing Where is your spirit? Where is your song? Where will you stand When it all goes wrong? You think you have power? We know you’re weak You think you can win? We will make you weep This is our spirit This is our soul song We stand together When the world’s gone wrong We hold the power We are not weak We know we can win Many teams One League
