Track Name: Animaltronics
Clean off the cobwebs, it's your time to shine
The operator says you've gotta keep them in line
The problem is that you're alone, no one to keep them away
You check the camera, eyes dart at the time
The room is getting colder, sending chills up your spine
There's something hiding in the dark and it wants you as its prey

You're running out of power
Because you can't stand up to these animaltronics
Nearing the final hour
Oh no, you can't stand up to these animaltronics

Your palms are sweaty, your fingers are numb
The beating of your heart is just as loud as a drum
You hear their footsteps down the hall, along with nursery rhymes
One's in the closet, the other's outside
They're inching ever closer and they know where you hide
The fox is coming out to play, you shut the door just in time

You can't control the shadows
Oh no, you can't stand up to these animaltronics
You're swinging from the gallows
Because you can't stand up to these animaltronics

You hear their wheezes and moans
Gargled noises come from the phone
Why won't they just leave you alone?
Unless they think your cover's been blown
So you'd better play dead!
So you'd better play dead!

Your arms are tired, your vision is crossed
You haven't kept control of all the power you've lost
The clock is slowly ticking down, you're almost out of the game
You lost your focus, the leader is gone
Maybe if you're careful you can hold out 'till dawn
If only you could tweak the odds, and not be subject to blame

You're running out of power
Because you can't stand up to these animaltronics
Nearing the final hour
Oh no, you can't stand up to these animaltronics
You can't control the shadows
Oh no, you can't stand up to these animaltronics
You're swinging from the gallows
Because you can't stand up to these animaltronics
You're running out of power
Because you can't stand up to these animaltronics
Nearing the final hour
Oh no, you can't stand up to these animaltronics...
Track Name: Before
It has been much too long
Since I put on my skin
They must have hid it away when they found out where I'd been (whoa)
I don't think you belong
You'd best get out of here
I see you hidden away through the window, drenched with fear (whoa)

Getting hard to see
Don't forget to breathe
Now you've lost the feed
Time to watch you bleed

Why are you trying to find
The secrets left behind
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
The present past is gone
Your future won't be long
Don't risk your life in search of all the things that came before
In 1987, they didn't go to heaven
Soon as the cameras die
I won't be far behind
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before

Seems you won't heed my warning
You just keep coming back
Despite hallucinations giving you these heart attacks (whoa)
But now my time is coming
I'll be the last to laugh
The spirits can't protect you when you're being torn in half (whoa)

Getting hard to see
Don't forget to breathe
Now you've lost the feed
Time to watch you bleed

Why are you trying to find
The secrets left behind
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
The present past is gone
Your future won't be long
Don't risk your life in search of all the things that came before
Investigations be damned, you'll never know who I am
You may have saved their souls
But you just played your role
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before

Why are you trying to find
The secrets left behind
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
The present past is gone
Your future won't be long
Don't risk your life in search of all the things that came before
You'd best stop wasting your time, reading between the scan lines
So long as number four
Does not build on the lore
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
You'll never know exactly what it is that came before
Track Name: Concrete Crow's Nest
Sittin' in my concrete crow's nest
Watchin' ideas fly by
Never make a lot of progress
No matter how hard I try

I can't climb down the mast
This thing was built to last
But they never put the stairs in
I've only got my mind
And a notepad, which you'll find
I'm constantly comparing

Sittin' in my concrete crow's nest
Watchin' ideas fly by
Never make a lot of progress
No matter how hard I try

I just can't break the mold
I've got no cards to fold
Nobody's even dealing
I've only got the sky
Though I think I'd have a better time
Staring at the ceiling

Sittin' in my concrete crow's nest
Watchin' ideas fly by
Never make a lot of progress
No matter how hard I try
Sittin' in my concrete crow's nest
Watchin' ideas fly by
Never gonna make much progress
So why do I even try
Track Name: General Purpose Birthday Song
Did you know that it's your birthday?
Well, if you didn't, now you do
Because the people 'round you won't stop singing
Happy birthday to you

It must be great now that you're older
Think of all the cool things you can do
Now that your age is higher than the last year
Unless you were just born today
In which case all I will say
Is "Happy birthday to you"

You probably cannot drive a car
Unless you're old enough to drive a car
In which case you can
Although the limit is a little higher
You can say the same for alcohol
So don't steal my can

I guess it's time to bring the cake out
And all the different kinds of food
Here's to another year of you still breathing
Happy birthday to you

It's just too bad your Uncle Robby
Couldn't make it to the party
But he sends his regards
Knowing him, he'd probably show up drunk
And make remarks about your weight
Inside of your birthday card

And when the celebration's over
We will sit down, just me and you
And talk about the fact that you still live here
You need to clean your damn room
Learn how to handle a broom
Don't sit around like a slob
Please go apply for a job
So cut a slice of your cake
Coz 'til then all I will say
Is "Happy birthday to you"
Happy birthday to you!

Track Name: The Short Straw
People say "The best is coming."
"Only time will tell."
But as of now, the promises are all they ever sell
There is no two ways about it
You picked the wrong one
And now I've got to face the consequences of what you've done

Doesn't matter what I draw
It'll be the short straw
I see no reason to keep playing the game if I always end up losing
The choice you made was wrong
It was your fault all along
I see no reason to keep playing the game if I always end up losing

The modern way we see each other
Across the stream
It makes you feel like things are almost better than they seem
But when it seems I'm losing focus
It all starts to break
I can't decipher the words you say, turns out I'm not awake

Doesn't matter what I draw
It'll be the short straw
I see no reason to keep playing the game if I always end up losing
The choice you made was wrong
It was your fault all along
I see no reason to keep playing the game if I always end up losing

We have become the global punchline
A worldwide joke
We only got their full attention when we began to choke
Every time we make a difference
It all goes down the drain
It's hard to swallow all these pills when you go and change the name

Doesn't matter what I draw
It'll be the short straw
I see no reason to keep playing the game if I always end up losing
The choice you made was wrong
It was your fault all along
I see no reason to keep playing the game if I always end up losing
Gonna have to withdraw
There's a pain in my jaw
Doesn't matter what I draw
It'll be the short straw
Track Name: Phallic Dinosaurs
Sittin' in a circle
Havin' so much fun
Gigglin' to ourselves because the night has just begun
I just can't seem to get them out of my head
I think they might be stuck with me until I'm dead
At least my friends are all here to enjoy them

We're drawin' phallic dinosaurs
Phallic dinosaurs
We're drawin' phallic dinosaurs
And that's okay

There's a iguanodong
And dicklodocus
Sitting by the great white lake, relaxing in peaceful bliss
I take my pencil and I draw what I think fits
It's weird what joy I find in drawing naughty bits
I think I'll post them online just for giggles

We're drawin' phallic dinosaurs
Phallic dinosaurs
We're drawin' phallic dinosaurs
And that's okay

Gettin' close to bed time
But I'm almost done
Gettin' harder to stretch out these names into puns
I think they've gone about as far as they can go
If I do draw some more, you'll be the first to know
Maybe next time I'll draw some vaginas

Until then, I think I'll draw one more (Ooh, phallic dinosaur)
Penile plesiosaur (phallic dinosaurs)
We're drawin' phallic dinosaurs (phallic dinosaurs)
And that's okay
Track Name: Nerve
Another day of being the floor
Gotta scrub away the grime before they come in the door
The tone never stops, it's cacophonous pain
Degrading my mind, taking power from my brain
We can't take away the cords or the freedom of time
All that we can do is just pile on the slime
And when it dribbles on down, running past the cloth
Then we start it all again, mix it in with the broth

There was a hole here, but it's not for you
The scent is getting thick when you start to chew
There's nothing I can do, take what you deserve
No reservations here, well you got some nerve
Some nerve
Some nerve
Some nerve

Track Name: Vault 16
Here in Vault 16
We live a scientific dream
The people in our team can take care of anyone
A gentle glowing green
A living health machine
There's data on the screen that monitors everyone

Ever since the bombs fell
We've been working hard to save humanity
And we'll be safe in our shell
No need to face the horrors of insanity

Here in Vault 16, we keep it clean
Destroy disease and dysfunction
Behind our door, we'll find the cure
To biological corruption
Eventually we'll find a way
To make tomorrow good today

Here in Vault 16
We all have PhDs
And medical degrees are handed to everyone
The lessons that they teach
Make medicine a breeze
We don't need other things to get the procedure done

When the vault was first built
I could hardly name a single person here
But now my hard drive is filled
With all the data to fulfil my purpose here

Here in Vault 16, we keep it clean
Destroy disease and dysfunction
Behind our door, we'll find the cure
To biological corruption
Eventually we'll find a way
To make tomorrow good today

AUDIO LOG:
"Alright, let's see what the data logs have for us today."
<Update. New hypothesis.>
<Problem not in finding cure or vaccine for virus.>
<Problem in transmission of virus itself.>
"Hmm. That can't be right."
<Virus spreads through airborne transmission via oxygenated cells.>
<Therefore, to eliminate virus->
*WARNING: AIR VENTILATION HAS BEEN SHUTDOWN. WARNING. WARNING.*
"Dear God."

Here in Vault 16
The ends justify the means
The duty falls to me to take care of everyone...

Here in Vault 16, we keep it clean
Destroy disease and dysfunction
Behind our door, you'll find the cure
To biological corruption
So come on in, don't be afraid
We're gonna take your breath away
Track Name: Spark in the Night
Twinkles in the sky
Nothing can compare
Lungs are getting dry
Need to breath some air
Gentle blowing breeze across my face
Sitting in the aura of your grace

I know I'll never be alone
You're watching from on high
These simple threads cannot be sown
But I won't stop the fight
And just like that, the light is gone
Like a spark in the night

Twinkles in my eyes
Though the rest is moot
Oh, how I wish the lies
Were the absolute
Peeking at the sky just one last time
Sitting in the aura of your shine

I know I'll never be alone
You're watching from on high
These simple threads cannot be sown
But I won't stop the fight
And just like that, the light is gone
Like a spark in the night

I know I'll never be alone
You're watching from on high
These simple threads cannot be sown
But I won't stop the fight
And just like that, the light is gone
I know I'll never be alone
You're watching from on high
These simple threads cannot be sown
But I won't stop the fight
And just like that, the light is gone...
Track Name: Shade
Locked in a dusty room
Pulsating darkened womb
The shadows twisting in and out of view
Sitting beside the bed
Faint noises in your head
It's hard to guess what it's doing to you

Depression and pure joy
Violent urge to destroy
It's toying with you, making you see things
Vision is turning black
There is no turning back
It reads your mind and you can hear it sing

(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it

Filling your head with doubt
You shake the noises out
But it's too late, your soul it will chew through
Your mind begins to reel
You can no longer feel
It's taken hold, there's nothing you can do

Its form begins to change
It starts to rearrange
Fingers are peeling, or at least you think
No longer physical
It's almost biblical
The way it's taken over everything

(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it

(Breathing)

(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't turn it on
(Turn it on) Don't even fucking touch it
Track Name: Godsaver
Godsaver
He's the saver of Gods
Godsaver
Against all of the odds
When nobody's helping, he'll pick up the slack
He'll get that little spot you can't reach on your back
Godsaver (Godsaver)
And he plays poker with everyone

He rids the world of hate and deceit
By saving files you might delete
In case you need them later that week
I wish that he could watch over me

Godsaver
He's the keeper of peace
Godsaver
He'll help you pay off that lease
If you've got some business you need to attend
He'll lend you his suit and let you keep it in the end
Godsaver (Godsaver)
And he learned guitar back when he was young

He rids the world of hate and deceit
He lets you talk when you wanna speak
He shares his latest vocal techniques
I wish that he could watch over me

Godsaver
The man we wish we could be
Godsaver
He donates clothing to charity
He's strong and he's handsome, unquestionably brave
His moustache is the kind you just can't bring yourself to shave
Godsaver (Godsaver)
Where will he go when the war is won?

He rids the world of hate and deceit
He turns the A/C up in the heat
It's almost like he lives in a dream
I wish that he could watch over me
