about

The night is black.
The moon is full.
The Captain is a monster.
Better get to the safe room.

First, thank you to everyone who made this possible, of which there is an incredibly long list. So, thank you to our families and friends. Thank you to crappy sci-fi movies and Mystery Science Theater 3000. Thank you to a chance to step out of our day to day and do something supremely weird and wonderful. We hope you like what’s to come.
~TP

Track Name: Wrong Way
When I was a boy, my momma always told me
Do the right thing, do it the right way
But now that I’m grown, I only ever happy
Doing my thing, sometimes the wrong way

I know you’re looking for a leader
I’m barely qualified to feed myself
I’m hoping just someday to please her
I know she wants to save my soul
Track Name: Stick Your Thumb Out
Can I get a ride, man?
Try me, try anyone
Who will listen to me
Hey man, try me
And I’ll buy a round
I’m not driving anyway

This has been a long time coming, long time coming
This had been a long time gone
Yeah, if I can hold together, hold together
Yeah, this is all I want
Track Name: Whispers
Whispers in the night
Take my hand through the darkness
Do the leading
Whispers in the night
Fill my ears with secrets
No repeating

I found you, you found me
And there's nothing I would not do for you
You take me deeper
Into the moment, into my mind
Into the music, into the mood

Whispers in the night
Now it's time to fill this void that
I've been feeding
Whispers in the night
Now the shadows have appeared there’s
No receding

Whispers in the night
Now the space behind my eyes will
Be your home now
Whispers in the night
It’s the perfect place
To take control now
Track Name: Solomon Grundy
Solomon Grundy born on a Monday
makes so much racket when he goes into town
I slip in sly, I’m the king of the night
You make a little noise, they put you in the ground

You wanna kill me? It better be with fire
It's the only way you're gonna keep me down
You wanna kill me? It better be with fire
It's the only way you’re gonna keep me down

Dark streets in the summer heat
Beauties that hide the real treat
Take my hand and you will see see
The Wonders and Terrors that I will show thee

Di Ga De Mo Di Ga De Mo...
Di Ga De Mo Di Ga De Mo...

I was there when you're sleeping
I'll be there when you're awake
I was there before you
and I'll be there when you're gone

I am there when you're sleeping
I'll be there when you're awake
I was there before you
and I'll be lonely when you're gone
but I'll still be here
Track Name: Iron On My Tongue
They said she had it easy
It took her by surprise
But I had a dream
And I know the truth
I saw the terror in her eyes

Questions left unanswered
When the night winds cease
I woke with the taste of iron on my tongue
And dirt on my feet

They had to close the casket
Put her in piece by piece
But they never found her heart
That I keep with me

Where will you go when the night winds blow
You’ll be running through my dreams
I will wake with the taste of iron on my tongue
And dirt on my feet

When you lock your door before you go to sleep
I want you to think of me
And how I will wake with the taste of iron on my tongue
And blood on my teeth
Track Name: End of the World
All my friends are waiting on the end of the world
Waiting for a fire in the sky
Stacking their cans nine feet high
All my friends are waiting on the riots to break
Checking that paper each day
Hoping the chaos comes their way

But you know we just feel out of control
Yeah you know we just feel out of control
Yeah you know we just feel out of control
Yeah you know, it’s just the end of the world

All my life I’ve been waiting on the end of the world
Waiting for a man in the clouds to come
With a sword in his hand
And while he goes and separates the sheep from the goats
‘Cause God knows I’m one of those
He’ll say Where have you been?

But you know I just feel out of control
Yeah you know I just feel out of control
Yeah you know I just feel out of control
Yeah you know, it’s just the end of the world

All of us are waiting on the end of the world
Letting every chance for love
Just pass us on by

Until a little bit of ourselves dies when our brothers do
And a little bit of us starves when our sisters do
Until we hear our voice cry out in the speech of our enemies
God damn, it’s the end of the world
God damn, it’s the end of the world

All my friends…

Oh, it’s just the end of the world
Track Name: Stargazers
When we were young
We looked to the heavens
They told us
We’d conquer the sky
And now we’ve grown
And we know the path there
But we’re still here
Still searching for why

Where are we going?
We’re the only ones driving
Where are we going?
God only knows
Well we’ve searched so damn long
To find the answer
It’s who you are, it’s how we grow
It’s not where we’re gonna go

We looked up
Like our fathers before us
Saw our faces
Painted in the stars
And though we might see
Beautiful constellations
We drew those lines
With human eyes and human arms

Come fly with me
Come fly with me
It’s you!
You’re where I want to be
Come fly with me
Come fly with me
It’s who you are, it’s how we grow
It’s not where we’re gonna go
