the waterboy looks down on him as he picks up the ball it's another awful day it's another awful day for mike townsend our prodigal son, our shameful pitcher, mike townsend and he pitches the ball in the same way to the same place every time, like an asshole and it's a strong hit to the outfield and a double for the spies mike townsend is a disappointment he's a loser and a total disgrace mike townsend is a disappointment mike townsend better end up in flames yeah he throws the ball in the air so that he can catch it and look cool but he misses catching it on the way down so he just drops it on the floor and has to bend down and pick it up again like nobody just saw him drop it and then he pitches the ball in the same way to the same place every time, like an asshole and the batter sees the defeat in his eyes and there's no strikes, no outs, it's a home run, great job mike townsend is a disappointment he's a loser and a total disgrace mike townsend is a disappointment mike townsend better end up in flames yeah mike townsend is a disappointment he's a loser and a total disgrace

A thousand miles down and a thousand to go In this place that she now calls a home Ripped away from her friends when she was meant to ascend With her lungs full of ash and just burnmarks to show Taking one for the team Has never cut so deep But now she's back on the field Sparks dance round her eyes She's ready to pay the price Making the most of her borrowed time There she goes again, with that flickering smile The unstable ace, steady toeing the line Now she's back with her friends, bound to them til the end With Mikeyboy in her heart and pitches to throw She's checking her pulse for the last time tonight Walks up to the mound, sees the fear in their eyes Spins the ball in her hand, ready to make this right The debt must be paid, for her team and for Mike Taking one for the team Has never cut so deep But now she's back on the field Sparks dance round her eyes She's ready to pay the price Making the most of her borrowed time

rogue ump 02:43
monday morning i arrive three hours early to see the sky before the moon obscures the sun before the players think they've won i take position four steps back from the home plate i am the cross-section between this mortal plane and its fate for unknown reasons, Jaylen burned in the first season, the Great Return the book forbidden, open wide the gods had spoken, Jaylen died when the meeting of the council had adjourned we thanked the gods for we knew the commissioner had done his job then five seasons came and went not a worry, no undead the sky grows dark and we decide who will live and who will die but when Hotdogfingers appeared atop the mound, cheating fate i took a secret vow to ensure their debt is paid and so, i wait and now the players arrive at last and i am grinning behind my mask for i see darkness coming forth and i know balance will be restored

hey goodwin 02:06

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

ashes 06:19
I thought I heard your laughter dancing joyfully in the wind When I turned around to find you you were gone I thought it would be us forever Together against the world But here I am standing alone As the sun sets on the dream we shared Memories is all I have left And all our regrets, all we left unsaid Now Ashes is all that remains Now Ashes is all that remains As I walked the streets we used to roam the void you left aches I thought I heard your call on the wind Please, Don't leave me behind As the sun sets on the dream we shared Memories is all I have left And all our regrets, all we left unsaid Now Ashes is all that remains Whisked away by the storm Only the memories are left Now my heart beats for both of us Now as ashes is all that remains As the sun sets on the dream we shared Memories is all I have left And all our regrets, all we left unsaid Now Ashes is all that remains One day I'll see you again, I promise you One day I'll be next, then I won't be alone Anymore
8.
i can see the truth in your eyes as you're telling me lies like you know that you'll hold my hand again cause you don't know you will but i know how you feel and i don't know if i can watch you walk out on the field and there's the lightning strike across the pitch-black night and i wanna hold you close, but i can't i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back i can feel you pull away from me i can feel you retreat "duty calls" you say, and then it's all of the eyes on the pitcher throwing and it's all of the eyes on the way it's going and you hit the ball, and then it's out of our hands and there's the lightning strike across the pitch-black night and i wanna hold you close, but i can't i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back and there's the lightning strike across the pitch-black night and then the smoke obscures the place where you once stood and when it clears, you're just not there
9.

park it 06:49
Theodore Duende's the perfect captain Solid fundamentals and a great friend We need more sluggers like him and Allison Abbott We need less people like Mike Townsend We’ve got Luis Acevedo The best vocaloid in the league But I’ll get to that later We’ve got Gwiff now and Gwiff never whiffs I think he’s at least half owl; it’s unclear But we’ve got Luis Acevedo The only vocaloid who can also thwack When they’re at bat they bellow This next runs for Hotdogfingers A victim of eldritch circumstance If she lived to see our new pitcher This next ground outs for Mike Townsend We’re going to win in spite of you If we don’t win that’s totally ok, cuz you know we’re gonna pa pa pa pa Park it Park it Park it Park it Theodore Duende's got the formula That’s why they call blaseball the sweet science He just walks up to the plate and says “Soundgarden is pretty good, But they’re far from the best band out of Seattle” “Have you heard of this band Weep Wave? I’ll make you a mixtape after this” Then he hits a grand slam This next runs for Hotdogfingers A victim of eldritch circumstance If she lived to see our new pitcher This next ground outs for Mike Townsend We’re going to win in spite of you Out of the way, it’s Duendesday season I know we’re anticapitalist But Tiana Cash didn’t have to die She was literally made of money Though I’m sure it informed her politics so for her we will just pa pa pa pa Park it Park it Park it  Hi is this thing on? My name is Mike Townsend, and I’m the current pitcher for the Seattle Garages The previous pitcher, Jaylen Hotdogfingers, was incinerated She was the first one killed after the forbidden book was opened, And I remember just sitting there with Tiana when it happened, and at first I couldn’t figure out exactly what had occurred but after I realized she was gone for good I was like “huh! That’s Blaseball for ya you know?" Like I forgot who said it but someone said Blaseball is a game of inches, and if she was standing just three inches to the right of the mound I’m sure she would’ve been fine. Anyways shortly after that Duende said “I can’t believe you’re our pitcher now” and I said “what? I’m the new pitcher?” And he said “yeah I really can’t believe it” to which I said “oh jeez thanks how cool is this!” But as you probably know, I’m not really as good as Hotdogfingers was, you know? I think the hotdogs let her throw the ball to more than one place without missing the strike zone, and she was even able to pitch it at different speeds! You know, I don’t have hotdogs for fingers, so I can’t do that. Anyways, so Im the pitcher now regardless, and I didn’t realize how much pressure it would be you know? Like every time I throw a walk off the fans are like “TOWNSEND!” And sometimes when someone hits a home run the fans will yell “TOWNSEND!!”, and sometimes when I pitch a bad game the fans will write a song called something like “Mike Townsend Is A Dissapointment” and it will become the new anthem of our team and it’ll play non stop on KGAR... You know how it is with Blaseball fans! Anyways I know I’m lucky to be the pitcher for such a great team, and I love my teammates but... I wish I was really good, you know? Like hotdogfingers good. Like, I could pitch a no no against the Hellmouth Sunbeams good. But, I’m not, you know? I’m not Jaylen Hotdogfingers, I’m not the best Blaseball pitcher in the league, I’m just kinda a goofball that the team likes to turn into a running gag. But we’ve won some games you know? And it’s not like we won those games WITHOUT me. And, you know, I’m not incinerated. At least, I’m not incinerated yet. I just want to be this big, bright, shiny star, and whenever I step out on the field I don’t want them to say “TOWNSEND!” Or “TOWNSEND!” I want them to say “TOWNSEND!” You know? Like “TOWNSEND!”. Ah... it’s so hard man. Anyways sorry to ramble, can I start over? OK. Hi my name is Mike Townsend, and I’m the pitcher for the Seattle Garages.

mike townsend has to get out of bed mike townsend's got the voice in his head and he can't remove the heavy feeling and it persists through the morning commute he's running late, so he texts "i'm en route" but he can't remove the heavy feeling and it's the coffee with one sugar but he wonders where they took her and the radio comes on and he cannot help but to hear "they found a way to get her from the shadows, but we need someone to go to where the map shows" mike townsend knows what he's gotta do "if you need respect, then you might just earn some, it's a journey you might not return from" mike townsend knows what he's gotta do the radio's blasting and he's singing along mike townsend hears his favourite song but he can't remove the heavy feeling the static hits when he's nearly there the null mixing with the waves in the air and he can't remove the heavy feeling he downs the coffee with one sugar and still he wonders where they took her and the radio comes on and he cannot help but to hear his hand is hovering at the gate now, and he's trying to think of a way out, but he closes his eyes and talks to himself in his head "they found a way to get her from the shadows, but they need someone to go to where the map shows, i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do. i need respect, and i just might earn some it's a journey i might not return from, i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do. there's a chance that this is the end, but i know i have to do it if it saves my friend, i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do. i can feel my spirit is leaving me, but i get power from the team, cause they believe in me, i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do, i'm a disappointment, i'm a credit to the team, there's a coldness in my blood, and i know what that means, i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do,

number 14 04:22
“Raise the dead” That’s what they said But we know it’s not so simple, you see When the team Completes the dream Who will be left unseen? When she passed away Those of us who had to stay Don’t what she’s seen in the underland So how could we doom one of the band? So watch out We’ll hunt you We’ll find your hidey-hole We’re gonna keep running and running Till we take back what you stole But we don’t Know what will Happen when you’re seen So till then we will try and keep her at number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Is the sun a god? What about the peanut too? When we’ve won this fight, do we fight them too? But for now. We stay For the rest of our lives, we will know the gods are not on our side. Who’s side are they on? Who’s side are they on? So watch out We’ll hunt you We’ll find your hidey-hole We’re gonna keep running and running Till we take back what you stole But we don’t Know what will Happen when you’re seen So till then we will try and keep her at number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Hope that we’ll see them again In this life or another

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
16.
so, siesta's end time to come back i missed all my friends jaylen returns for one more but not with us she's so full of love mike, still in the shadows is this the last of him or will he rise again hope, can we win it for them we'll watch the twelfth trip around the sun 2 shines above the black hole gets ten and minus one what will await us when it's done we'll have to rest until it has begun so, coffee cup's past inter xpresso their new perks will last justice, a new era's dawned what will it mean will it be obscene umps, will they be so kind to spare the team our lives or will some players die so much to look forward to we'll watch the twelfth trip around the sun 2 shines above the black hole gets ten and minus one what will await us when it's done we'll have to rest until it has begun so, it's almost here start of the season i have so much fear can we win it this time we'll watch the twelfth trip around the sun the twelfth trip around the sun
17.
Every morning it's in my head Even before I can get out of bed As I sip my coffee, with Oatly instead It whispers in the silence "Jaylen is dead" Every practice, when they get on base I feel it always that empty space And a horrible feeling I can't erase That She should be here in my place I know what it is I have to do A truth I think I always knew A sacrifice must be made before we're through And I'll do whatever it takes just to see You Every evening it's in my head While I'm wide awake lying in my bed I toss and I turn filled with dread So I scream into the silence "Jaylen won't stay dead!"
18.
lose you 04:06
we almost made it to the end of the season without our curse comin to bite us in our rear end day 95 had come and gone and we were coastin but then boyfriend was collected by the void ocean and jaylen cried because she knew there was now a fine for our team too and she said tot clark oh tot clark i don’t wanna lose you i don’t wanna lose you oh tot clark oh tot clark this shouldn’t be on you i don’t wanna lose you things managed to turn out fine for our boy in wraps we made it to the semifinals and we felt on track but five hit batters on the wings left us nervous we watched in horror as mike wheeler became a furnace as ashes drifted onto his cheek malik’s fur stood on its end as jaylen screamed and she wailed cat boy oh cat boy i don’t wanna lose you i don’t wanna lose you oh cat boy oh cat boy this shouldn’t be on you i don’t wanna lose you and the fans wailed out we don’t know how much more that we can take but they don’t know nothin bout the depths to which someone can go through pain cause she still steps up and tries her best while her undead heart breaks inside her chest and she says tot clark oh tot clark i don’t wanna lose you i don’t wanna lose you oh cat boy oh cat boy i don’t wanna lose you i don’t wanna lose you i’m sorry everybody this shouldn’t be on you i don’t wanna lose you i’m sorry i’m so sorry i don’t wanna lose you i don’t wanna lose you
19.
*horn break* death waits for us all, and there's no use in rushing it so shut your stupid mouth before i come and ruin it it wouldn't be the first time i caught someone's teeth in my hand they're shouting from bleachers "crazy bitch! go back to where you came from!" makes me feel like pitching at their faces, making sounds quite like a drum but i don't think the rest of the team would understand my metallic skin reflects the skepticism of the masses they whine that i'm a fake and then i go and kick their asses my cold, golden exterior hides with it, burning blood but i think about mike townsend and my eyes begin to flood, cuz my skin is reflective, but not on the inside when i feel a feeling, all i wanna do is hide punch a hole in brick wall, and commit deicide *horn break* sitting on the counter, eating stale bread from the week before wishing i was chewing something better while watching the oven door waiting for my sourdough to rise i'm cramped up in this tiny kitchen, peeling plaster from walls feeling claustrophobic, throwing yeast saches and plastic bowls maybe suppressing all emotions is unwise my metallic skin reflects the skepticism of the others no one talks to me, it's just like christmas at my brother's my cold, golden exterior hides with it, a raging flame and a strange desire to play a pawn in a god's game my skin is reflective, but not on the inside when i feel a feeling, all i wanna do is hide punch a hole in brick wall, and commit deicide *horn break* *mediocre trombone solo* my metallic skin reflects the skepticism of myself i would be all jolly if i could just ask for help my cold, golden exterior is a shell that's holding in a big mess of emotions that are spreading me so thin my skin is reflective, but not on the inside makes it hard to examine all the dreams that i denied think about the life i lead right now, and just try to decide *horn break*
20.
rejoice 04:30
My kicks got knicked in Charleston Got spat on in Halifax Lost the jacket that protects me From rogue umpire attacks And though I’m deep in debt like Jaylen I can’t bet a single coin Cuz on the first day of the season, we rejoice. My truck broke down in Moab By the Hellmouth’s gaping Maw So I hitchhiked down to Hades To punch god in the jaw Cuz someday that nut will come down To shell me and the boys But until that reckoning, we’ll rejoice Yeah we rejoice We rejoice Cuz to be honest, we don’t really have a choice Oh tomorrow we can gamble Till the whole plane is destroyed But on the first day of the season, we rejoice Oh so often times are tragic When it comes to ol’ blaseball From the Shelled One’s Pod betrayals To the deaths of Monreal And Massey and Jenna and Olive and Nora and Murphy and Lars and Sosa and Greatness and Famous and Meritt and Zi and Jessi and Hurley and Dracaena and Aldon and Cedric and Rhys and Bennett and Bryanayah and Juan and Barnes and Passon and Miguel and Chorby and Kath and Kennedy and Meadows and Ogden and Sebastian and Atlas and Tyler and Tiana and Jorge and Matteo and Sam and Shaquille and Blankenship, Santana and Rangel and Sunshine and Derrick and Rubberman and Langley and Landry and Steakknife and Stevenson and Ingram and Matheo and Duende and England and Morrow and Turquoise and Internet and Bookbaby and Lotus and Randall and Mickey and Wesley and Moody and Elijah and Scorpler and Kiki and Antonio and Dominic and Murray and Telephone and Yazmin and Frasier and Workman and Wheeler and Hobbs and José and Tillman and Jaylen and—wait I think that’s all of them. One more verse! Got blooddrained down in Dallas Heard the birdstorm’s horrid caw Got mocked outside of Philly By a phone singing “Rap God” Yes tomorrow brings the darkness And that awful piercing noise (that no one can explain!) But on the first day of the season we rejoice Yeah on the first day of the season, we rejoice
21.
Sometimes a barista grows up to join a blaseball team And some times the barista falls in love… with that blaseball team And some times she grows up in a city with everything she needs But maybe this city’s just not for me I’ve rode to the top of space needle like 60 times And smashedstarbucks windows more than that Dated a few too many people, lost my heart and then some more I gotta go get gone gotta get to a get away My ships leaving the puget sound as I cruise on down to florida now But I hope you all are there to see me off And I know I wont see you every day and thats pretty scary but it’s okay We’ll see eachother soon at the play offs Empty bowls and hand washed plates and 14 smiles and birthday cakes These memories I’ll always carry with me Chewing gum, and bad advice, too many exes I thought were nice Hoping these dark things don’t know how to swim Thank you to the band for helping me find my voice And thank you to the team that taught me strength Touring in that van has shown me the whole world but A tour’s Transient treats tend to be temporary My ships leaving the puget sound as I cruise on down to florida now But I hope you all are there to see me off And I know I wont see you every day and thats pretty scary but it’s okay We’ll see eachother soon at the play offs Oh I know I don’t have to go But with my roots here there’s not where left to grow And I know, we cannot always be together But when you see me catch that flyball know that I would never be here without you My ships leaving the puget sound as I cruise on down to florida now But I hope you all are there to see me off And I know you wont see me every day and thats pretty scary but it’s okay We’ll see eachother soon at the play offs We’ll see eachother soon at the play offs Oh I’ll see you soon my friends and we will sing and cry again when We see eachother make it to the play offs
