343 05:23
343 (Danylo-Desman) Heavy broken door At the top of the steps Steps we could not trust With all of us all at once Red skies at night From the roof on McKee Always good company 343 I got memories Of pictures of memories Ripples and ghosts Echos of what meant the most Tangled lines that intersect One big perpetual retrospective project Don’t look back Something might be catching up Let it rust Pile on the dust 343 should be condemned It’ll outlast us Roaches on the window In the couch, in the stove Keeps the cat occupied When she don’t got bigger game You only called when you needed something Then you just stopped calling Don’t look back Something might be catching up Let it rust Pile on the dust 343 should be condemned It’ll outlast us There won’t be any concerts when I’m gone Tributes from peers, posthumous acclaim All the same, I got a cataloged legacy Till the EMP wipes out all that’s left of me Don’t look back Something might be catching up Let it rust Pile on the dust 343 should be condemned It’ll outlast us Don’t look back Something might be catching up Let it rust Pile on the dust 343 should be condemned It’ll outlast us

The Alchemist (Danylo-May) Got a headful of lead So the alchemist said Said I ain’t falling For the voices come calling Got a fistful of steel When the enemy is real Got a headful of lead So the alchemist said I am my worst enemy So c’mon baby, friend me Tell me what I’ve been missing Be sure to be listening Said if you could inhale Just a little more noble Your words could be neon Glow the world global Got a headful of lead So the alchemist said Three protons away From something real great Got a heart that beats harder Than it should, if I’m honest Got a headful of lead So the alchemist said Probable transmutation All comes down to energy Could get stoned like philosophers Enlist, become officers There’s purposes out there That we’ll just never get to Every path that we travel Takes us where we just go to In all my elixirs There’s no panacea Like a red Taylor port from 1963 or 4 Grapes born to be squeezed To a sweet, potent tonic Got a heart that beats harder Than it should, if I’m honest Got a headful of lead So the alchemist said Composition redacted Soul radioactive Periodically busted Intact if I’m rusted Got a headful of lead So the alchemist said

Greek Fire 05:52
Greek Fire (Danylo) Twelve people have stood on the Moon Twelve people have stood on the Moon I can name two How bout you? Twelve people have stood on the Moon Only twelve people have stood on the Moon I know a hundred characters from Star Trek Hundred characters from Star Wars Thousands of baseball and football players We know celebrities, we love celebrities Musicians, models, and jagoff politicians But twelve people have stood on the Moon Twelve people have stood on the Moon Went to the moon six times in four years Haven’t been back since ‘72 How come? No, really, how come? Maybe Nobody cares about the Moon Nobody Cares about the Moon Can’t turn a profit, return on investment Maybe it’s occupied, grealiens in craters Maybe it’s a Death Star, or a hunk of cheese Or maybe we forgot Forgot how to do it Maybe we forgot Forgot how to do it Incompatible legacy technology Incompatible legacy technology We wasted our technology On plastic bags and pop-up ads Wasted our technology On hair transplants and boner pills Greek fire Damascus steel Greek fire Damascus steel Went to the Moon six times Haven’t been back in like, fifty years If we got there in the first place Past the radiation belts in a tin foil tube Powered by computers that couldn’t run DOOM History’s a set of lies agreed upon Napoleon said that Everyone knows Napoleon Plato said Atlantis sank beneath the waves Paul told the Romans, Jesus saves Pyramids in jungles, Antarctica on maps Three towers were demolished, Wardenclyffe was scrapped In a couple hundred years, a thousand years or two Will future historians look back and say “Well, we think ‘going to the Moon’ Was just a metaphor for the American spirit of exceptionalism” Arthur and Merlin Helen and Paris Gilgamesh and Enkidu Radha and Krishna Moses and Aaron Neil and Buzz Golfing on the Moon Greek fire Damascus steel Greek fire Damascus steel Greek fire Damascus steel Greek fire Damascus steel

Fatal+ 02:54
Fatal+ (Danylo) Skank Mountain got dump truck cleavage Fracked all the unnatural ways Another round for erryone Line up shots of the Fatal Plus I wanna get wild with you Like we used to When we used to get wild I wanna get wild with you Like we used to When we used to get wild We’ll build our house, chop our wood Make our gardens grow The hole was created for the puddle The puddle ain’t so sure bout the sun I’ve been talked out of love, talked on a ledge I talked when I should’ve listened Another round for erryone Line up shots of the Fatal Plus I wanna get wild with you Like we used to When we used to get wild I wanna get wild with you Like we used to When we used to get wild Laying two on the green Quintillion psyche sixteen What we done, what we seen You know what I mean You know exactly what I mean I wanna get wild with you Like we used to When we used to get wild I wanna get wild with you Like we used to When we used to get wild

Calico 05:28
Calico (Danylo-Dubosky) Down for one, but I’ll have two Lit like a set piece, spotlight on you Stubborn like a stain, flakier than pie Warning track power with the sacrifice fly but I feel so goddamn blessed when you darken my sky Calico knowns when it’s time to groove Bucket full of truffles and the amber goes down smooth When the Lord come calling, you gotta move I’ve got nothing but the whole wide world As if that’s enough I’ve got nothing but the whole wide world As if that’s enough Wrote a song for you cause I love you Wrote a hundred more songs Cause I also just love writing songs Sugar in the concrete, tea in the sea Wealth trickles down, you just gotta make em bleed and I feel so goddamn lucky you could afford me Calico knowns when it’s time to groove Bucket full of truffles and the amber goes down smooth When the Lord come calling, you gotta move I’ve got nothing but the whole wide world As if that’s enough I’ve got nothing but the whole wide world As if that’s enough I’ve got nothing but the whole wide world As if that’s enough

Uncle Bob 05:34
Uncle Bob (Danylo) Look into my eyes Tell me what you see I sure would be delighted By your company Wanna know what love is Show me how it feels Something happens and I’m Head over heels Shake it baby, shake it Wiggle like a hoop I’m a man with a fork In a world of soup Big wheels turn Little wheels spin I could tell you bout the river or We could just jump in How does it feel How do you sleep Oh Mary, Mary don’t weep If Uncle Bob can do it Erryone can do it Ain’t no sunken treasure Perfection’s not required Pictures in the paper being Rhythmically admired Tell me something good Tell me, tell me lies It’s a crime I never told you bout The diamonds in your eyes How does it feel How do you sleep Oh Mary, Mary don’t weep If Uncle Bob can do it Erryone can do it Hands across the water Hands across the table All she keeps inside Ain’t on the label The jester spins gold out of Scraps of well-worn fleece What’s good for the goose Plays for all the geese How does it feel How do you sleep Oh Mary, Mary don’t weep If Uncle Bob can do it Erryone can do it

Beautiful Dream (Danylo-May) Mockingbird says hello Time to wake up, time to go I say no Roll back over Count the sheep that jump the fence Tell em slow down, take a rest Count the bees buzzing round the clover I’m better off in dreams The real world wasn’t made for me I was made for make believe Send a missive to my princess Tell her hold off on those kisses Let me stay in this beautiful dream Down the hallway there’s a door Swear it wasn’t there before A secret room where we can hide Sun in shining in the sky Hear my mother’s lullaby When I run downhill I remember how to fly I’m better off in dreams The real world wasn’t made for me I was made for make believe I’ll drink the potion, spin the flax, Prick the pin, eat all the apples Just to stay in this beautiful dream I’m better off in dreams The real world wasn’t made for me I was made for make believe Send a missive to my princess Tell her hold off on those kisses Let me stay in this beautiful dream I’ll drink the potion, spin the flax, Prick the pin, eat all the apples Just to stay in this beautiful dream
