Track Name: The Phantasm Ball
Phantasm Ball
here in the wind
and electrical lines
Phantasm Ball
you're using backwards time

in the summer wind
I love all of it

you're what I like about the earth

I wandered away
I wanted it to be
a pleasant surprise
the night is so yours

and here we are
the way of the dodo :(
Track Name: Club 33 Skeleton Key
Club 33 Skeleton Key

Back at the funhouse
My hall of mirrors
I'm on the midway
Getting tickets to ride
Everything

They fixed the carousel
it's no longer breaking down
I had my fortune read
And it was a good one

I like the razzle dazzle
I like it fancy
I like the razzle dazzle
I like to smile lately

A skeleton key
gets you on into a
skeleton club

I drew a pitching sky
with a shrieking wind

In the magical land
Of make believe

A skeleton key
gets you on into a
skeleton club

In the magical land
Of make believe
Track Name: Cracked Mad And Crazy
In Atlanta in the Lantern Inn Atlanta
In the lantern light
nobody knows about that car in the barn
or how the scarecrow came to life one night
and chased 'em round the moors
Track Name: Ice Cream
Ice Cream


I'm learning C++
Python and Perl
Ruby and Java

An 12 week course
in witchcraft
and systema
I'm getting deadly
at chess

I'm a modern
mind
1854
2059
I'm moving on
I'm feeling
fine
I'm a modern
mind
1454
3069
I'm moving on
I'm doing cool

and when the sun
goes down
I try to forget
who I was
supposed
to be
naturally

All winter in a
ice cream truck
I found myself
frazzled

I'm finally riding the bus
I make a passable girl
when I'm speaking
fluent Mandarin

An 8 day seminar
on how to disappear
how to fly
how to breathe
underwater
I'm there


I'm a modern
mind
1854
2059
I'm moving on
I'm feeling
fine
I'm a modern
mind
1454
3069
I'm moving on
I'm doing cool

and when the sun
comes up
I try to remember
who I was
supposed
to be
super naturally

All summer in the
ice cream truck
I found myself
liberated
Track Name: A Church In The Basement Of The Woods
A Church In The Basement Of The Woods

We were burned
and we shared
identical scars
Now we are learning to heal
designing and developing
A Church
In The Basement
Of The Woods
If you believe
in you and me
then let's just jump on in
we are learning to heal
Track Name: Fractured Fairy Tales
Fractured Fairy Tales
they're becoming true

and when you're talking
about the world being haunted
tell me
what does that even mean
but yes
it melts my mind too
the horror in humanity

an imaginary curse
you made it come to life
you've made a "real thing"
out of a lie

Fractured Fairy Tales

when you litter in the forest of love
what you think
what you think goes on ??

who sent you
who were you
what were you looking for
what were you
what were you looking for ?

I am made of mud
and stardust
Track Name: The 8 Circuit Model
the 8 circuit model


... there was a party in the lobby ...

I sense you're here
just like you are

trying to survive
on a reptile brain
junk DNA

that is when I saw her
and the games that she had
were all very dangerous games
that's when it stopped being cute

I got outta the business
until it pulled me back in
like i was hypnotized

why yes, she is straight up real nice
I love science too

the 8 circuit model
is on the Catwalk
now
don't take a picture

I sense U R here
just like you are
Track Name: In The Court Of The Bozo Squad
Mistress may I open the Lab
if I promise to clean up
on a billiard of accidents

gonna take you to a
wonderful place
in your mind

are you there
Light us in

I never mean to make anyone cry
and I cry alone all the time

In The Court of the Bozo Squad
I was the Ring
leader of the Pageantry
I provided
the Smoke
and the Mirrors
and the Lights
and the dancers
ooh "Those Sexy Dancers ®™ " ...
Track Name: Maid Of the Mist
Maid Of The Mist

It's 11:59
at the Houdini Museum

I let it ride
I'm on trip
I'm the Maid of the Mist

Rosabelle
I'm in the wax museum

can I get a flight
to the Detroit River
and dunk me in the ice

get Lovecraft
on the telegraph
Track Name: Batgirl Japan
Batgirl Japan

Bringing apples for the bats
here she comes
Bringing apples for the bats
here we come

the finest wines
cost less than a dollar

she sees a mystical
world aII around
her room
are movies
she can be ...
