alignment 03:22
every frequency, every universe on a sine wave that wanders through space hear them forming, hear them merging at the bridge where this world and yours interlace echo through barricades of noise, peel your eyes open turn the volume up and rejoice for the moment properly aligned with the broadcast, now don't touch that dial but turn up the gain give this new world life, give it meaning, though it will matter for just a few days echo through barricades of noise, peel your eyes open turn the volume up and rejoice for the moment cause every wave crest must descend and every world must meet its end when it disappears in the void, you will know then echo through barricades of noise, peel your eyes open turn the volume up and rejoice for the moment cause every wave crest must descend and every life is means to an end when you see nothing but the void, you will know then

zero 03:40
gamma radiation penetrating my brain events on the horizon got me going insane everything's familiar, nothing feels the same I dunno the players and I can't call the game the ticker's telling me accounts were overdrawn now my money's gone and there's zero to gain everything confusing, i dont know where to go everyone's around me and there's no one i know everything is silent but the scream in my soul the world keeps on spinning when you're in a black hole parker's telling me to wake up and play ball but i can't see the hall where are the bases we stole gamma radiation putting me in a trance making me imagine all that's left of my plans please imagine music, 'cause they're making me dance please imagine thumbs, they're growing out of my hands the microphone telling me to fight the gods but when i see the odds it's a zero percent chance 1.7 million, just to spite the gods but when i see the odds it's a zero percent chance we're gonna lose but it's a win for the team got the zero percent blues like a cog in a machine lost in the noisy weather and i ain't got much but we're stronger together when we're going dutch

deep dark 02:32
play by week stay inside day to day someone might die play by week stick inside day by day sometimes you might just die It’s a night game Everybody stay up Then next runs tagged and we’re winning the cup I would stay and play When the fans come out at night It’s a night game Everybody stay up Then next runs tagged and we’re winning the cup I would stay and play When the fans come out at night It’s a night game It’s a night game It’s a night game Everybody stay up Then next runs tying and we’re winning the cup I would stay and play When the fans come out at night Every time i look at you I feel so cautious My grip is getting sweaty and my head is spinning nauseous It’s you and me an empty team and no one in the space between Everything feels right But everytime you look at me I feel so helpless For something i cannot perceive still leaves me breathless Your stare is passing through me and your eyes are looking hungry Maybe just a trick of the light During a night game Attachments area

Hey! I’ve been Genesis, we’ve been The Garages, and you’ve been a great crowd! Um, thanks for coming out. We’re gonna end this off with a special one… Vanessa Tables, uh, are you in the audience? Would you come to the front of the stage, please? ...Okay!

"Two, three-" I saw you dancing in the stands before the game Now I wake up in a sweat ‘cause I’ve been calling out your name Vanessa Tables, where do I start? Standing on a stolen second base, you’re fielding right behind You whisper in my ear and it sends shivers down my spine Vanessa Tables, you have my heart You’re just so stunning and I don’t know what to do Yeah you live beneath the sea, and I’m a girl from Bellevue You pushed me in the pool when last I talked to you Vanessa, you’re on my mind Maybe I will tell you how I feel on Day 55 This game ain’t quite as fun when you’re not up there at the plate But I catch up on your replays just to make sure you’re okay Vanessa Tables, do you do the same? You’re always staying at the same hotel But my door is open so come over darling, you might as well Vanessa baby, it’s warmer in my bed and I don’t care what people say ‘Cause at the end of every day you’re the one I’m here to please You’re just so stunning and I don’t know what to do Yeah you live beneath the sea, and I’m a girl from Bellevue We splashed each other senseless and we wrestled in the pool Vanessa, you’re on my mind Maybe I will tell you how I feel on Day 55
