Track Name: The SAD Waltz
As the leaves do fall from the trees
The weather depression draws near
While the flames of passion extinguish
It’s everyone’s fave time of year

I curse the axial tilt
Cry over milk that spilt
While I am stringing up lights
My heart falls to pieces as
azimuth decreases
Causing the endless of nights

While we watch the sun fall
We’ll dance The SAD Waltz
Hoping to turn things ‘round
While we watch the sun fall
We’ll dance The SAD Waltz
Hoping to turn things ‘round

As the sun sets sooner each day
The shadows grow longer and creep
You could try to fight through the darkness
but It’s easier to fall asleep

It feels so much later
Far from the equator
But without you the earth will turn round
The tropic of cancer
will yield no answers
The clouds will deaden the sound

While we watch the sun fall
We’ll dance The SAD Waltz
Hoping to turn things ‘round
While we watch the sun fall
We’ll dance The SAD Waltz
Hoping to turn things ‘round

It’s hard to feel your face
While you're drifting through space
To shadows you have to relent
You may lose trajectory
A sine of this vector, see
When apathy’s omnipresent

While we watch the sun fall
We’ll dance The SAD Waltz
Hoping to turn things ‘round
While we watch the sun fall
We’ll dance The SAD Waltz
Hoping to turn things ‘round
Track Name: A Better Place to Live
Hello I’d like to introduce myself
As candidate for president
of the United States
I’d like to help you all I can

According to the facts up on this chart
To which I point with my tentacle
I’ll increase productivity by
enslaving all humans

I have won your nomination
But now I must shift to the center
And so I’ll reveal our master plan
As I recite another quip

The point is that we'll enslave you
And force you to strip your own planet
Of all its natural resources
As we return them to our ship

We will make a better place to live
We will make a better place to live

And now that I have won this election
I might as well tell you
Your corpses will be used as toys
For our children to teeth on

And many of you will be used as farms
From which we’ll drink your blood
Forever in a cage, so there’s no way
That you can run

We will make a better place to live
We will make a better place to live
For us
Not you
Why so surprised? You needn’t be terse
I mentioned “enslavement" in the second verse
We’ve won
We’ve won
We’ve won
Track Name: Great Waves (The Gravitational Waves Song)
We orbit each other as we yearn
We feel each others’ pull and burn
As we dance I see us turn / increasingly so fast

They say we may be past our prime
No we’re not Gs, we’re not that type
Cannot escape attraction this time / to each others’ mass

They see us as black holes
Or maybe neutron stars
If they listen closely
They’ll hear us very far

When you and I
We both collide
They’ll see from far away
You and I— We will make Great Waves

The speed of light cannot be changed
Lasers set, mirrors arranged
To sense when we have bent their space / by fractions of protons

They'll make a world-wide network
Of interferometers
And we’ll combine our talents to
Make a show that can be heard

When you and I
We both collide
They’ll see from far away
You and I— We will make great waves

Einstein said that generally
In terms of relativity
When massive bodies make activity / for lightyears we’ll bend space

The next act is a nova
But now’s our time to shine
We’ll create some ripples
Throughout space and time

When you and I
We both collide
They’ll see from far away
You and I— We will make great waves
