It was foretold Saturns sons would overthrow him. So he ate is young but Rhea gave him stones. Neptune Pluto and Jupiter survived.

Air and Food 04:03
There has to be a way There has to be a way We can do a lot of math We can do a lot of math Sitting in debris Me and you and you and me Wouldn’t it be nice if we could grow a tree On the air inside a comet We could live inside a comet Maybe we could eat a peach Maybe we could live on it If I were being honest we could stay here for a while with artificial gravity. fake gravity and Air is all we ask. give us food too if you want to Air is all we ask. give us food too if you’d be so kind Air is all we ask. Food too if you’d be so kind. We were on our way. Growing old and grey Dying every day. Rebirthing like a boss Training cycle got easier and easier Glad we got that peach tree for me and you and you and me Race against time We could never loose With our curvature laser point and fire at everything succeed excessively, Exceed successfully We will definitely seed thanks to

Across the sea across the sky 64 Moons and a big red eye I’d hammer out justice I’d hammer out skeletons I’d frame the situation I whip around in a circle I make thundercracks in the sky I have such mass i distort myself I’m the biggest wanderer in the sky we changed our minds and changed our clothes. we’re going to go where the eagle goes our preperations will be thoroughly helenized.

We poke your eye and we splash your sea bringing a craft of air and food to selene exit the craft disorienting isnt it nice that we can all breathe? oculus maria who can complain when we got so far? you’re the only life for a long long way orbit is locked in tidally super regolith surrounding me see our place in the distant space otherwise a perigee we have achieved our objective yet have no idea what is coming next strain and stress late heavy bombardment explosions rage humanity’s allergy

So I dress like a robot I guess A slave to Robot fasions imposters like me don’t care about ideology and that’s just why I make no apology I think it’s time to launch it’s time to seal the deal Tell all the minerals in the world I think it’s time to launch it’s time to seal the deal Tell all the people the extent to which nothing is real We were so impressed. insufficiently dispossessed shooting every interval with aesthetic rockets The song does not exist and neither do your ears. You can try all day to make sense but you’ll fail. Minerals Vegetables and Animals melt and freeze ice that means that you and I agree to this deal

Ladies love the wise old dudes robes and beards they never lose helios the boss of fusion we’re such a profusion of wisened dudes we are men we named the stars we got plans that may perturb you we disagree but eventually converge here is what we’re going to do we’ll find some hydrogen to fuse send some wind to the helopause colusses of astronomy penetrate the space with food and air we’re Helios panoptes huh got science hats and telescopic shoes we disagree but eventually converge

you have to run sometimes you have to freak out sometimes disobey directive prime you have to fight for your life the atmosphere is thin lots of trouble we are in goldilocks with ill intention you want to survive to re-ascention captured like deimos and phobos we’re prisoners of anthro arthros insectoid regicide we want them to disintegrate you have to run sometimes we have to try to colonize we must outpace the restless ones disintegrate them to great excess Tyr’s laws Mars pursues us. the atmosphere is thin and the aliens are closing in goldilocks will try to eat us. Chasing us through canali and valles marinaris we gravitate too weakly but our escape suits keep us warm we sure killed the boss we did so. its time to get away

Some turds stole our bikes They were nice bikes and we want em back Someone stole our bikes and there’s a reward A reward that you can have if you bring em back Love is activism and the revolution of the soul force Saturday Some turds stole our bikes Is what the flyer said Well I’m not plural and I’m not a turd And I got sick reading every single word. There seems to be a crime spree. There seems to be a spree Do you wanna go and visit far away? Do you want a purpose do you want a change? Do you want a salary and benefits? Wish I never stole those bikes Wish I wasn’t such a turd So glad I saw that bulletin board So glad that I became a Saturn shooting star

Come over here I wanna check your pulse It’s important that the cat is healthy enough It a mistake to think the hairdos she wears will wear off I can’t get up and I can’t move about the cabin Although I’m disturbed by the talk were havin’ Won’t you wait an minute I wanna take your picture Dont close your eyes I wanna take your picture Don’t you know what always makes em go? Civilization is getting old. Teeth are white and blood is cold The big huge hostess will carry us all over town Won’t you wait an minute I wanna take your picture Dont close your eyes I wanna take your picture Blue is the bloom of seven gaseous dooms Seven icy moons that taste like bitter trees. Won’t you wait an minute I wanna take your picture Dont smell the camera I wanna take your picture There is no desert there. No ribbons in Her hair. Dressed in black and white. Come over here I wanna discuss If you think they’re gonna look like us. You know it’s a mistake to expect the algae bloom to be green Don’t you know what always makes em go? It’s fictional astrobiology Don’t you know what always makes em go? It’s fictional astrobiology Don’t you know what always makes em go? It’s fictional astrobiology

I can’t describe you enormous your animal eye they won’t believe me you shouldn’t exist anymore your tentacles pull down the sky Moon eyes. Watch out for the rocks they cry Watch out for some boulders descending form orbit and landing on country homes No bones. Only regular skeletons ossify. one time it rained down space tears on a sea who forgot where the clouds were supposed to go Daytime. I used to think the universe was orderly. Someone broke reality and I was surprised to find that it still worked perfectly fine.

looking for warmth. Blown by solar winds a long time ago I saw risk and I saw opportunity I was just a goddess with an embryonic earth Helios and the dawn see my eyes from across the void Titan of brilliance, mother of Selene from whom all shininess proceeds collision course. from an oblique angle. you took my mass for 100 years the moon will grow We cracked our mantles. Silicates coalesce. I became debris and a magma ocean, my skeleton took leave. when we collided, I disintegrated a long time ago our slow dance of disco destruction I was just a goddess. with an embryonic earth.
