All of those seasons ago I made a special promise to you We would make it to the playoffs and then I would get to see you But it seem like now the only one who made it there is you So now I’m stuck here at this party wishing I could be with you And this beat is pretty lonely and Randy just spilled my drink But you hit another home run brought shame to the other team And I go walk to the cooler looking for another drink By the time that I get back you’re laughing singing with your team And I’m sorry I didn’t make it to the playoffs with you I’m so glad that you did, but I wish that I could have to And I’m sorry about the lies that I told to you I’m sorry I couldn’t be there, too. And I thought that leaving losing would help me to find myself But now I know that losing things can still include your self And I guess I’m pretty happy til I’m by my lonesome self But even if I’m sad I hope you’re happy with yourself Ask me if I like it here I’ll tell you that I do And the reason that I say that I because I know it’s true But with every passing season I find fewer things to do I hope the good things of Seattle never stop being true

big leaguez 02:48
so what if we rise above ‘em all only to fall into an abyss really, what if the big leagues call and when we pick up, they decide we’ve won enough last night I choked all down my hopes after looking through the telescope and damn, the crabs are getting slammed I almost laugh, but, I gotta ask, uh, what if we win and in a blink that’s us? we’ll sadly recount our champion highs in an endless cycle of party time don our medals so we remember the sweet taste of victory even in an endless buffet of defeats my god, what’s happenin’ in those big leagues? so, what if we kill all the gods what dyou think are the odds There’s someone bigger ‘round the bend? what if instead of the standard end the classic fade to black we’re immediately under attack? last night I choked down all my hopes after looking through the telescope and yeah, still a bad game for the crabs I almost laugh, but, I gotta ask, uh, what if we win and in a blink that’s us? we’ll sadly reminisce champion highs in an endless cycle of party time don our medals so we remember the sweet taste of victory even in an endless buffet of defeats my god, what’s going on in those big leagues? god, what's going on in those big leagues?

you know i'm humbled for what you see in me but there's nothing much to see beneath the stars you might think that i have so much potential but your expectations will not be met maybe sometimes if i got good vibes maybe can hit the ball between the stars but we all know i'll strike out swinging i'll strike out singing like when we met i'm just a name and some numbers though i try my best i knuckle under i'm just a burden you are encumbered but you still cheer why do you still cheer? because i know the forbidden knowledge of who i am and what i can do and if you revealed the forbidden knowledge of who i am you'd wanna leave me too

black hole 01:42
Things were going So great 8-2 up Against the steaks Our bowlers Cleaning shop But our batters will not stop Too good, We're too good We can't stop When we should Scoring loads Isn't always the goal I can't look As we start to fold Black hole As it wraps around, Collective Groans Our score resets Back to zero We worked so hard All for what Nothing nothing, Now all we got Too good, We're too good We can't stop When we should Scoring loads Isn't always the goal I can't look As we start to fold Black hole Black hole Black hole

I'm glad I spent the week with you I think I did a good job too and then I even got to play there's not a whole lot else to say but goodbye, best friends I hardly knew you goodbye, best friends I hope it meant something to you goodbye best friends looks like the hour's getting late please continue to participate and I hope that you'll remember me as I go out in a blaze of glory or at least in a cup of coffee so goodbye, best friends I hardly knew you goodbye, best friends I hope it meant something to you goodbye, goodbye goodbye, best friends I hardly knew you goodbye, best friends I hope it meant something to you goodbye, best friends

I don’t need a catcher all I need are these two massive hands To put you out to pasture! Plus I can fistfight with your classist dad!! I’ll bring him to the rapture!!! I promise I’m usually a passive man. They say that I’m a monster I’m just a pitcher with some cool elastic pants Will they ever let me be myself? I wonder As I wander Around the south end of seattle I watch the light rail Stop But I never get on Because I’m too tall I don’t talk to Cops I just kick flip over their cars Like my best friend tony hawk As I dream Of blaseball As I wander up to belltown This is why I have the fundamentals Even though the world is cruel I can still pitch with the fundamentals My arms the perfect tool They just say batter up The catcher signals me I never break a sweat This pitch is destiny And it’s another strike And then I just repeat This is why I have the fundamentals I’m a monster but I’m no fool Every morning I wake up Before I put on my monster makeup I dream a little dream of you And you The fans of the seattle garages I know at first you were afraid, you were petrified Wondering how you’d have a monster pitcher on your side I hope after the past few seasons that’s you’re pleasantly surprised because I know that I’m a monster But I’m still an asset on this team Can you just let me live? I wonder As I wander Up through all of gas works park This is why I have the fundamentals Even though the world is cruel I can still pitch with the fundamentals My arms the perfect tool They just say batter up The catcher signals me I never break a sweat This pitch is destiny And it’s another strike And then I just repeat This is why I have the fundamentals I’m a monster but I’m no fool This is “experiment with formal structure, opus 337, by Ron monstera. Inspired by ligeti, john zorn, Wendy carlos, and tot clark.” xThis is why I have the fundamentals Even though the world is cruel I can still pitch with the fundamentals My arms the perfect tool They just say batter up The catcher signals me I never break a sweat This pitch is destiny And it’s another strike And then I just repeat This is why I have the fundamentals I’m a monster but I’m no fool …thank you

i feel the shadows tugging, lord oh my lord i feel the shadows tugging, lord i feel the shadows call their darkness and their thrall i feel the shadows tugging, lord i thought that what i’d need is the opportunity to be the one who shines just like the sun but when i got the chance they turned to necromance and i knew i’d be the forgotten one i feel the shadows tugging, lord oh my lord i feel the shadows tugging, lord the light is fading fast and though this too shall pass i feel the shadows tugging, lord i spent my days in gray tryna keep my fears at bay and eventually i learned what i find true that loneliness is not some curse that leaves you lost and if it saves you all, that’s what i’d choose i feel the shadows tugging, lord oh my lord i feel the shadows tugging, lord when night time turns to day i'll have to go away i feel the shadows tugging, lord i answer not to seeds to coins, or to the sea i answer not to man, nor to machine the only thing i know is after, when i go i hope the ones i love remember me i feel the shadows tugging, lord oh my lord i feel the shadows tugging, lord i feel the shadows call their darkness and their thrall i feel the shadows tugging, lord
