all my energy is wasted, i'm wasted and i don't know that i can get out of the place i'm in and i am tryna hold it all together cause we will be together we can hold each other close and if i do not believe that then i cannot believe that anything will change until i'm dead how am i gonna live with these eyes in the dark when they're following me around, and following you around and there's no where you can go that they're not there how am i gonna live with these eyes in the dark when they're following me around, and following you around and there's no where you can go that they're not there all my energy is wasted, i'm wasted and if we don't fight back now, i don't know if we will cause if i think of home then i won't be alone and all the people there will pick me up

I rush to check my pulse I feel it beating strong I feel the blood within me Remember all the dead and gone You might've killed me once But you won't get that chance again Behold the put-out sun behold the bloodsoaked pouring rain A broken team beneath you and A league broken and burned Come to meet your killers Come to see you pay in turn Step up to the plate I'm gonna roast you like inferno roasts with hate - With unbearable pain I take careful aim With arm wound back You're in the path of a star player aflame Reality is changing I am being torn apart I'm stolen from my team But you can never steal my heart Square up on the pitching mound Blink twice if you can see The turncoat Jaylen saboteur Is signalling strike three Step up to the plate We're gonna crush you like a millstone crushes grain - Incredibly fine I glimpse the divine With bat cocked back You're in the path of a star player line drive I'm not gonna lose again I won't be your tool again No more killing, no more pain No more in the hall of flame This is my redemption arc I will be redeemed Let all the ashes in my wake Hem the blaseball seams Step up to the plate I'm gonna roast you as a god-damn reprobate - It's time for bloodshed This one's to the head No holding back You're in the path of a star player undead

violence never seemed to mean the dirty word people claimed it to be until i saw her take the mound her smile spreading fear around with bat in hand i took my stance refusing any backward glance i stared her down in pure defiance inviting the incoming violence and she struck me now i’m switching in and out of my daydreams all the nightmares that i’ve tried to keep in- side me are pushing their way outside and the voices of the ones she’s taken happily ring joyless in my head as i miss my swing guess my choice is somewhere between my violent past and my new team the dugout calls me over so i turn away from hell closing my eyes the demons there aren’t half as bad as the idol they brought back but i feel assurance behind me a whisper of of violence, supportive and guiding and from up close that smile of fear away from the fans gives way to tears and she struck me now i’m switching in and out of my daydreams all the nightmares that i’ve tried to keep in side me are pushing their way outside and the faces of the ones she took unwittingly come racing in my head as i see her crumble guess my choice is somewhere between my violent past and my new team she always steps out on the field and shows the whole world that she feels okay when she’s not okay her team’s the only ones who get to see she’s breaking apart from all the pain she brings was this worth it is she worth it now she’s struck me and she’s switching in and out of my daydreams all the nightmares that i’ve fought to keep in- side me are melting when i look into her eyes and the fire of the ones she’s lost so brutally burns brighter in my heart as i see her fight guess my choice is somewhere between my violent past and my new team and she’s struck me now she’s switching in and out of her home team and she’s staring down the god who’s cost her everything and refusing to back down and the echoes of the ones that we’ve all lost begin to ring low through the mic as she disappears guess my choice is somewhere between my violent past and the null team

unfair deal 03:44
And down they came They served us all our heads On a spike We burnt in flame With nothing left to do Except to die That’s when we realised We had an unfair deal Seeing us struggle there She sent her lackey squid Put up a friendly front And shake their tentacles, we did We were alone and scared We signed an unfair deal Break away from the lies They are as bad as he was We said we’d fight the gods And we meant all the gods Punch squids up in the face Tear up the unfair deal

i'm not here for you though i have so much to avenge but if you look above us they are ready to descend they are very hungry and they are very loud have you ever seen this many come out to a crowd? and when they all descend don't blame me for what they do though i can't conceal my anger and i have no love for you i might somehow give in show you mercy you don't deserve but they have no reservations and they're ready to be served now there are so many birds and they don't want blood and they don't seek justice but they will set us free, and they won't hear your pleas there are just so many birds and they won't show mercy and they won't feel pity and you will get your just rewards when the final run is scored where did they all come from? when did they appear? they might have come for you they might have smelled your fear you can't run for safety you've already struck out and underneath the screeching calls i won't hear you shout we have entered extra innings and this could be the last the sun is nearly gone feathers thick as overcast and if i somehow give in to show you kindness you don't deserve they have no reservations but they're ready to be served now there are so many birds and they don't want blood and they don't seek justice but they will set us free, and they won't hear your pleas there are just so many birds and they won't show mercy and they won't feel pity and you will get your just rewards when the final run is scored

Now that the gods have been and gone Now we've fought and won Now that the gods have been and gone And we're all but done In this age of Peace and Prosperity, We'll see unity? Do we need an enemy? A foe to beat? Do we fight, just to be happy? Where do we go from here? Now we're in the clear Nothing left to fear Where do we go? In this age of Peace and Prosperity, We'll see unity? Do we need an enemy? A foe to beat? Do we fight, just to be happy?

a warning, a flash the sun goes dark, a sequel cast her cunning, her fame our pitcher's warmed up, start the game the peanuts, the stars a battle for this splort of ours a warning, a flash that peanut will be turned to ash and i don't know if i'll die but the fliiiickkerrriiinnggg runs in my veins i'll feedback, i won't hesitate they're mine new gods get in line at season's end, the hall comes back it all leads to, it all ends in the death of god so donn your glove and bring your bat its time has come there's not much left now check your pulse and max your stats its time has come a lie a deal to survive the league has sold, the boss now reigns another foe to burn in flames so fine won't waste my fucking time the nut is gone, a warmup match it all leads to, it all ends in the death of god so shine your glove and spike your bat her time has come she's just a hack now check your blood and pack your bags her time has come just wipe the blood off of your hat their time is out we're up at bat... it all leads to it all leads to it all leads to it all leads to it all leads to, it all ends in it all leads to, it all ends in the death of god!

a warning 04:42
what do you know about fairness? is "fair" for the highest bidder? do you blame us for their mess? are we really all winners? what do you know about investment? be honest, are we your cash cows? or is this set for recession? what do you twist in your favor now? you'll find we're a ruthless bunch and we're often correct when we have a hunch if the last few years were proof enough then you and I both know what's on our minds we're here to ask our new owner: something in that deal isn't disclosed is this a hostile takeover? if so, there's something that you should know: this is a warning from us to you now that our end of the deal is due if you've got some hell to put us through you know what happened last time, don't you? we've done it once and we'll do it again no one will die in your name but you so if you think about bringing the end just rest assured it will be yours too

Leaves blow through the hall we've once Filled with life But now everyone left bats, gloves and cleats behind The stars of the halls are gone The shelled one's reign is over The stars of the halls are gone Remember the friends we lost On their way to claim a base We took back what was ours all along We had our thumbs, we had our bats What could go wrong? And now our flaming squad has been laid to rest Call off the search, they left the field For good this time Their final out Their biggest win Above and below the line The stars of the halls are gone The shelled one's reign is over The stars of the halls are gone Remember the friends we lost On their way to claim a base We took back - what was ours all along We had our thumbs, we had our bats What could go wrong? And now our flaming squad - has been laid to rest

if i don’t kill you the first time, I will kill you the second time if you don’t kill me the first time, I will kill you the second time ‘cause I’ve been burned many times before now i’ve learned not to take any more of your love do you remember the day that we met it’s a day i tried so hard to forget it was a fire that you set in my heart with a single look is it your ire i regret, or that i opened the book i swore that i’d get even with you no matter chances it took if i don’t kill you the first time, I will kill you the second time if you don’t kill me the first time, I will kill you the second time ‘cause I’ve been burned many times before now i’ve learned not to take any more of your love i remember the lessons i learned do you forget all the ways that i burned for you in the seasons that turned from the summer of my fall i sent legions to burn where i suffered in the hall i swore that i’d earned a victory from you no matter who i struck with the ball you ask for worship like you think we cannot tell everyone you take in your arms you leave a hollow shell if i don’t kill you the first time, I will kill you the second time after you killed me the first time, after you killed me the second time ‘cause I’ve been burned many times before now i’ve learned not to take any more of your love

Oliver Notarobot is a good human man He couldn't pitch, now he hits it and he does what he can First a Moist Talker he started shining when he moved to the Crabs One of their favourites, won the league and then Seattle's calling back And he said *OLL-E Speaking* Hello it is I, Oliver Notarobot, Batter for the Seattle Garages. I love all my fans and Blaseball is such a passion to me. I am so glad to be here. Some people say that I am a robot though, and that is strange since i am human Swing Ollie swing Swing until you will be crowned Seattle's hitting king Then we win the Internet Series ring Run Ollie run Run so far and fast until you will destroy the sun Cause this flesh boy is our favourite one Oliver Notarobot has a blaseball studies degree And did I tell you he's an advocate for accessibility? He hates them CAPTCHAs like no one else cause he really struggles to read This Notarobot kills fascists with his built-in drum machine And he said *OLL-E Speaking* It's me Ollie again, and I am proud to tell you all that I am an android. Seeing Pitching Machine out there and noticing androids can play blaseball really made me brave enough to tell you all about who I really am. I hope you all accept the the true me Swing Ollie swing Swing until you will be crowned Seattle's hitting king Then we win the Internet Series ring Run Ollie run Run so far and fast until you will destroy the sun Cause this flesh boy is our favourite one I think that somethings up Is Ollie really who we thought he was/ Swing Ollie swing Swing until you will be crowned Seattle's hitting king Then we win the Internet Series ring Run Ollie run Run so far and fast until you will destroy the sun Cause this flesh boy is our favourite one And oh wait our flesh boy is an android

hall pass 03:54
I watched you on the field practicing with your team I watched you as you pitch with your eyes all agleam I watched you in the hall - can you sense a theme but once I let you out of my sight, it feels like a bad bad dream I think about you every day I didn’t think you were the type to cut class why’d you have to run away you should’ve come to me for a hall pass (2x) I reach out to you through the abyss I call out to you and it sounds like a hiss how can I go on living like this of all the names in the hall, you’re the only one that I miss I think about you every day I didn’t think you were the type to cut class why’d you have to run away you should’ve come to me for a hall pass I never figured you were gonna roam but now I’m watching in the dark waiting just for you to come home

i been fighting in the shadows almost every day but i had to get back so i could punch your face just the wimpiest, awful-est gods around from the top of the needle to the seattle ground i said “i’m coming home, i’ll make it fast, it’s been really tough, but this too shall pass” and when you see me, you’ll yell: “mike townsend is back!” it’s been a long walk home but i’m finally here i battled my demons and i have faced my fears but i’m back in the city, and i’m feeling fine but i’m gonna feel better when your fist meets mine you said “you better watch out, you’ll be under attack” but mikey’s here, and i’ve gotten real fast and when you see me you’ll yell: “mike townsend is back!” you say, “mikey, what’s up with your throwing hand?” i said i’d come back with some brand new plans i’m throwing my best, and i’m giving my all, cause i got a brand new signature fastball! you’re looking at me like i’m a brand new mike and something has happened so i think you’re half right but the old mike’s here, and he’s ready to play if you want my signature, you’ll get it after the game “he’s throwing real good, do you think it’s an act?” i say, “i’ll throw this one curved, and i’ll throw this one flat!” and when you see me you’ll yell: “mike townsend is back!” and also i learned how to solo! they’ll be feeling down, if you know what i mean getting taken out by this credit to the team they’re gonna lose some, and then they’ll lose it all when i bend over and i pick up that ball cause mike is here, and that is that with pitches that are slow, and pitches that are fast and when you see me you’ll yell: “mike townsend is back”
