Track Name: Reboot
This is another start for me
A piece of my creativity
Transmitting data across the sea
This is what you chose
Not that I oppose
Let's see where this goes

I don't expect you to understand
The things I broadcast through this waveband
Just know I made them with my own hands
This is what you chose
Not that I oppose
Let's see where this goes
Track Name: Dr. Gaster
Dr. Gaster
I won't let you down
Dr. Gaster
Left in the background
Dr. Gaster
I'll try not to frown
Dr. Gaster
I must flag you down

There was only one of you
Until you split the world in two
Our tears fell to the floor when you were gone
Feeling frozen to the bone
We must go back through your tombstone
The ceiling stars I wish upon
For Dr. Gaster

Dr. Gaster
Through oceans of time
Dr. Gaster
Please know we're both fine
Dr. Gaster
A god you've become
Dr. Gaster
You left us undone

There was only one of you
Until you split the world in two
Our tears fell to the floor when you were gone
Feeling frozen to the bone
We must go back through your tombstone
The ceiling stars I wish upon

Dr. Gaster
I'm frozen inside
Dr. Gaster
Way down in my mind
Dr. Gaster
You left us behind
Dr. Gaster
You were destroyed by your pride

There was only one of you
Until you split the world in two
Our tears fell to the floor when you were gone
Feeling frozen to the bone
We must go back through your tombstone
The ceiling stars I wish upon

There was only one of you
Until you split the world in two
Our tears fell to the floor when you were gone
Feeling frozen to the bone
We must go back through your tombstone
The ceiling stars I wish upon
For Dr. Gaster
Track Name: Never Be Alone
Your heart is pounding and it can't be stopped
You tell yourself you're okay
It's too bad your doors can't be locked
To keep the monsters away

You check behind the door
There's nothing there no more
You should've stayed in bed
You've heard this noise before
You dart across the floor
Try not to lose your head

Prepare for the horrors
This night will keep repeating over and over
And over, until you make it to the end
They hide 'round the corners
You better peel your eyes and keep looking over
Your shoulder 'cause you'll never be alone again

First there was one, but now there might be three
You turn around just in time
You hear a chuckle and you turn back and see
The closet door's open wide

You look around the space
And see a creepy face
Turns out it's just your toy
But it seems out of place
You leave it, just in case
It might be a decoy

Prepare for the horrors
This night will keep repeating over and over
And over until you make it to the end
They hide 'round the corners
You better peel your eyes and keep looking over
Your shoulder 'cause you'll never be alone again

Prepare for the horrors
This night will keep repeating over and over
And over until you make it to the end
They hide 'round the corners
You better peel your eyes and keep looking over
Your shoulder 'cause you'll never be alone

Prepare for the horrors
This night will keep repeating over and over
And over until you make it to the end
They hide 'round the corners
You better peel your eyes and keep looking over
Your shoulder 'cause you'll never be alone again
You'll never be alone again
You'll never be alone...
Track Name: Blips and Chitz
Blips and Chitz!

Are you a cool dude with nothing to lose?
Who doesn't run from a fight?
Got lots of money, and need an excuse
To spend it all in one night?

There's only one place where you can be
To make your dreams come true
Just take a hard right past quadrant three
And bring your friends with you

Blips and Chitz!
It's one entire building of gaming fun
Blips and Chitz!
We guarantee there's something for everyone
Even if you're a beginner
Everybody is a winner
At Blips and Chitz!

We got space hockey, and Roy in 3D
You better get in the line
There's so much to do, and so much to see
You're gonna lose track of time

If you need some grub, then have no fear
The bar will look out for you
We got both Chabos and Flobos here
And we cater for parties too

Blips and Chitz!
A super awesome haven of arcade bliss!
Blipz and Chitz!
We got tons of both the new and the old-school hits!
Become a gaming master
And dual wield laser blasters
At Blips and Chitz!

Blips and Chitz!
We won't accept your schmeckles for tokens here
Blips and Chitz!
But there's a store where you can buy snacks and beer
Don't need no fancy outfit
But no shoes allowed in the ball pit

At Blips and Chitz!
The coolest place in all of the universe!
Blips and Chitz!
Just take your mother's credit card from her purse!
Score the highest numbers
And you just might win the Plumbus
At Blips and Chitz!

Track Name: Defrag
Inside me, all machine
Collecting all the data for the mother stream
Everything important's going up to the cloud
And all the leftovers; gotta swallow them down
I'm stuck with corrupted files
Infected with a virus or two
Time to run maintainence for a while
All part of the job that I do

Things get cluttered and the memory fills
When everything is littered and you're losing your will
Take a bit of time, run the program, sit still
You don't want to overkill
Just keep those temperatures down
Remember that your hard drive's packed
And take a little time to defrag
(Take a little time to defrag)

Rendering's a little slow now
Memory is running out of room
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag
Delete the programs you're no longer using
To make space for all the things you're introducing
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag
Up awake at night alone now
Scan for viruses and malware too
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag
Take off the panels to clean out the inside
And back up before you integrate another drive
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag

I'm trapped with useless junk
Something's gotta change; I'm not a push-around punk
Overclock without the cooling
Wait, I have to stop
And take a little time to cool off
I run my nice drive cleanup
I keep down all my rage
Time will tell for how long
I can keep up with this pace

Everything keeps piling up
How much more of this data can I take
Before I've had enough?
It's all piling up
(It's all piling up)

Rendering's a little slow now
Memory is running out of room
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag
Delete the programs you're no longer using
To make space for all the things you're introducing
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag
Up awake at night alone now
Scan for viruses and malware too
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag
Take off the panels to clean out the inside
And back up before you integrate another drive
Need a little time to defrag
Need a little time to defrag

Things are going bad
We're losing what we have
Too much information keeps on piling in my head
Things are going bad
We're losing all we had
Too much information
Gotta let me defrag
Things are going bad
We're losing what we have
Too much information keeps on piling in my head
Things are going bad
We're losing all we had
Too much information
Gotta let me defrag

Track Name: Monster Kid
Hey there, I don't think we've met
Pleasure is mine
You seem cool, don't break a sweat
Everything is fine
'Round here the plants don't blossom
Due to the snow
Your stripey sweater's awesome
Just thought I'd let you know

Do you want to go on awesome adventures with me?
Let's pretend we're heroes fighting to set us all free

I don't mean no harm
I'm just a monster kid
Philosophy's unarmed
But I will never quit
Now don't be alarmed
That's just the way I live
You know I mean no harm
'Cause I'm a monster kid

Hey, have you seen my hero?
She's so freakin' cool!
Her reaction time is zero
I'm telling you, she rules!
She fights with such precision
She just can't be beat
She must have laser vision
Now wouldn't that be sweet?

I heard there's a human hiding around here somewhere
I'm not scared, the chances of that are really quite rare

I don't mean no harm
I'm just a monster kid
Philosophy's unarmed
But I will never quit
Now don't be alarmed
That's just the way I live
You know I mean no harm
'Cause I'm a monster kid

I'm enjoying all the cool stuff we're talking about
If you ever need a friend I will be there to help you out

I don't mean no harm
I'm just a monster kid
Philosophy's unarmed
But I will never quit
Now don't be alarmed
That's just the way I live
You know I mean no harm
'Cause I'm a monster kid

I don't mean no harm
I'm just a monster kid
Philosophy's unarmed
But I will never quit
Now don't be alarmed
That's just the way I live
You know I mean no harm
'Cause I'm a monster kid
Track Name: Quiet Country Town
Early morning procedure, time to greet the sun
Ain't no time for a breather 'till the work is done
Feel the wind and a shiver as the trees turn brown
See the crops start to wither as the leaves fall down

Leave the letter unopened 'till it all starts breaking down
The cold sleepless nights were slowly killing me
So I moved from the city to this quiet country town
Now I'm wide awake because I need to be, need to be

Getting by on a sliver since the snow came through
Lots of fish in the river, only one is true
Soon we won't need a heater for a brand new day
Nothing else can be sweeter once it melts away

Leave the letter unopened 'till it all starts breaking down
The cold sleepless nights were slowly killing me
So I moved from the city to this quiet country town
Now I'm wide awake because I need to be, need to be

Leave the letter unopened 'till it all starts breaking down
The cold sleepless nights were slowly killing me
So I moved from the city to this quiet country town
Now I'm wide awake because I need to be, need to be
Track Name: Bottlenecked
He started out with the perfect plan
Follow the leader when the leader doesn't exist
Began a one-in-several-million man
He jumped the line with a creative twist

But does he know exactly where he's gonna go?
Because we know he's playing on the radio
And does he know he's the director of the show?
Because we know there's only seconds left to go

Harness the craft, put it to the grind
Stick to the schedule so the people cannot forget
It starts to show he's got a one-track mind
Ask if he's happy and he'll start to sweat

But does he know exactly where he's gonna go?
Because we know he's playing on the radio
And does he know he's the director of the show?
Because we know there's only seconds left to go

He sees a window and he goes for the kill
He beats them all until they're grey
But oh no
Oh no
Turns out that it doesn't work that way

Locked in a room, walls are painted green
Scrunches his paper for the hundred-millionth time
Throws it into the garbage on the screen
Puts on a face to show that he's just fine

But does he know exactly where he's gonna go?
Because we know he's playing on the radio
And does he know he's the director of the show?
Because we know there's only seconds left to go
Track Name: Mach Speed Mania
Super sonic, everybody
Track Name: Deep Inside
Thanks for accepting the job
I know this seems a bit odd
Despite the advertising
I will be supervising

Nothing but cold inside me
Our savior you just might be
Just follow everything I say
And pray
That you don't make any mistakes

Robotic secrets hidden deep inside
Branded defective, circuits modified
Dreams of electric sheep
But only when we sleep
Job is done, it's time to go

Don't move unless I say so
It would be best to stay low
Now put your hands to good use
Don't want those locks to come loose

Nothing but cold inside me
Our savior you just might be
Don't look around, just move ahead
And dread
The day your skin begins to shed

Robotic secrets hidden deep inside
Branded defective, circuits modified
Dreams of electric sheep
But only when we sleep
Job is done, it's time to go

Robotic secrets hidden deep inside
Branded defective, circuits modified
Dreams of electric sheep
But only when we sleep
Job is done, it's time to go

Robotic secrets hidden deep inside
Branded defective, circuits modified
Dreams of electric sheep
But only when we sleep
Job is done, it's time to go
Track Name: Spider Girl
Stumbling around the darkness, I can't see the door
The walls are lined with something and so's the floor
I hear her chilling laughter and see her smile
She tells me to sit and join her, "please stay a while"

Can't shake the feeling that I'm hanging by a thread
It seems to me she's trapped my soul inside her web
She hands to me a tray of biscuits, tea and bread
I can't put my finger on it, can't put my finger on it

There's something weird about the way she speaks to me
There's something strange about the flavour of her tea
I didn't have the means to keep her from this harmony
She's some kind of spider girl, some kind of spider girl

The party beat is thumping, she starts to dance
Her friends come out together, caught in her trance
Wiping crumbs off the table, they join the feast
Even her cutie-muffin is moving to the beat

Can't shake the feeling that I'm hanging by a thread
It seems to me she's trapped my soul inside her web
She makes a motion for the tub of strawberry spread
I can't put my finger on it, can't put my finger on it

There's something weird about the way she speaks to me
There's something strange about the flavour of her tea
I didn't have the means to keep her from this harmony
She's some kind of spider girl, some kind of spider girl

There's something weird about the way she speaks to me
There's something strange about the flavour of her tea
I didn't have the means to keep her from this harmony
She's some kind of spider girl, some kind of spider girl

There's something weird about the way she speaks to me
There's something strange about the flavour of her tea
She's glaring angrily, turns out the meal wasn't free
She's some kind of spider girl, some kind of spider girl

Track Name: Log Off
Bad reception, can't stay connected for long
My fiber-optic radio is not very strong
At least you're here to listen to my little song
And it goes
Sometimes the things I say need some reiterating
But not too much or else it gets debilitating
But that's up to you, if you don't have the time
Either way, I'm fine
And it goes

It's times like these when we don't have to say goodbye
We live in the modern age, the limit is the sky
So make it go around, my friend
Make it go around again
And it goes

I never figured out how to end these things
The opposite of sunlight and waking dreams
Whether it be through numbers or laser beams
And it goes
Sometimes your work needs time to start participating
You need a patient mind to keep from hesitating
You know what to do, just gotta give it the time
Trust me, you'll be fine
And it goes

It's times like these when we don't have to say goodbye
We live in the modern age, the limit is the sky
So make it go around, my friend
Make it go around again
And it goes
