(M:) Raindrops, they fall upon my face Wrapped up within cold darkness' embrace A bolt of lightning 'cross the sky... I ask myself...why...? Is it 'cause of memories so dark and tragic? Is it 'cause of trauma cut so deep? Or is it vanity mixed up in self-delusion That I can bring peace... Become the night... Bearer of justice and what's right... Become the everlasting light... Become the (k)night Looking down upon the refuse in this town, Are they just fools or tools for demons underground Is this a cross, is this a burden I am meant to bear? Why, then, should I care... Is this a blessing or is this a curse? Savior or vigilante: which is worse? Is this a power or is it responsibility? Why can't I yet see... When they call to me... Become the night... Bearer of justice and what's right... Become the everlasting light... Become the (k)night. (F:) Don't you remember that one night that scarred you? The hour when destiny revealed The cards that you were dealt, and now you need to play them Become without fear... The wounds you feel deep down inside your heart Won't close no matter where you end or start But can you become hope that cuts through the despair? Be the one to care... Hear them all down there... Be what they need here... For when the choir of the people sing... (M: No more love, feeling’s gone...) And joyous exultation starts to ring (M: Will no one hear what’s wrong...?) The peace that you know only you can bring them (M: Father...Mother...Why can’t I be like any other...?) Those oppressed by those who claim to be the light Throughout the city torn up by dissention... (M: So is this what you will give to me?) Torn apart by fear...(M: So then I use what you bequeath to me...) That's...(M: To be...) When it turns clear....(M: ...What they need...to see...) Become the night...(M: Though I am at the end of my rope...) Bearer of justice and what's right...(M: I will become their glimmer of hope) Become the everlasting light...(M: Become a dark pariah) Become the (k)night! (M: To become a dark messiah) (M:) Become the night...(F: Will you become the guardian?) (M:) Bearer of justice and what's right...(F:Will you become their hope?) (M:) Become the everlasting light...(F: Become the burning light) Become... The...(k)night!

Hello, my dear Where have you been? Sit by my side And a tale I shall spin I left you for fear That when they found you, you'd leave me But darling, my dear They couldn't bereave me I'd been looking for you For what seems like forever But darling, my dear Never say never Your love is e-ver-las-ting I still remember it Your love is e-ver-las-ting I still remember it See I left you alone To nature's devices Now you've become This swamp's sweetest spices I finally found you Sifting through mud You look like an angel All drenched in blood Now, here we are Together at last And darling, my dear Some time sure has passed Don't know if I'll find you again Let's make the most of it Don't know if I'll find you again Let's make the most of it My mind still reals With your moment's last living Our love could do With a little rekindling Goodbye, my dear Sleep in the vines- I'll sleep soundly myself With your face in my mind

Well I’m a regular guy having a regular time with a regular bro on our regular show Doin’ regular things, hey baby dontcha know? We’ll have a regular thing if you go with the flow... I’m an adventurous guy having adventure time With adventurous gals making adventurous rhymes An adventurous quest, you know that it’s the best Let’s have adventurous times, there ain’t no time to rest. YEEEEEEUHHH YEEEEEUUUHHH WHOOOOOAAAAAAA WHOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAA Well I was travelin’ out to the land of Ooo ‘Cause my heart was beatin’ at the thought of you But then I stepped in a crack and ended up right here In the parks department in a really odd year. So I made the best of my really strange trip Fell for a cutie barista, but man was that a rip ‘Cause she totally ditched me for some dumb jock drip On the day that I reopened that dimensional rift... AND THEN THEY DESCENDED BY OTHERWORLDLY DEVICE, BOTH DEATH AND A MONARCH WHO WAS MADE OF ICE ONE WISHED TO WRESTLE ME WITH NAUGHT BUT HIS ARM THE OTHER ONE SIMPLY WISHED TO CAUSE ME BODILY HARM AS HE SNUGGLED WITH A PENGUIN WHICH WAS RATHER ODD THEN DEATH CHALLENGED ME LOUDLY IN A VOICE NOT UNLIKE GOD... "I HAMBONE IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION, YOU CUR... AND DEMAND YOUR LIFE IF YOU CAN'T BEAT ME, GOOD SIR" SO TURNED TO HIM, AND SAID... Bro... Let’s solve this one with... ROOOOOOOOCK! Well if we have have a regular time with our adventure show We’ll get mathematical under the stars you know At a radical park where everyday is a bet With our stretchy dog bestie and our talking TV set!

Fight 04:41
Fight by me until the day when we are one Fight by me with passion burning in your soul Fight by me with every ounce you have to give Fight by me until the end of time... Locked within the depths of my mind Is a raging fire that is very hard to find Burning passion, it consumes me till the end But for you, I’ll never let it go my friend! Fight by me until the day when we are one Fight by me with passion burning in your soul Fight by me with every ounce you have to give Fight by me until the end of time... Why do I fight...what can’t I leave behind? Is it love or brotherhood or something just as blind? All the answers I know I have locked away All I know is now...the chaos that is today! Fight by me until the day when all is told Fight by me with fury elemental and divine Fight by me until the day we learn the truth Fight by me until the end of time... I look back upon those days with regret So many hopes and dreams and yet Promises left unfulfilled just because I was too gutless to rise up and above... Fight by me until the day when we have won Fight by me until we overcome the dark Fight by me beyond our passage through the night Fight by me until we reach into the light! Fight by me until the day when we are one Fight by me with passion burning in your soul Fight by me with every ounce you have to give Fight by me until the end of time...

I’m going back to space now Prepared to make the climb I’d like to bring you with me But sadly this one’s mine... I’m going back thru time now To live from age to age A solitary life for me But I must take the stage Oh... The dreams I had for both of us The lives we could’ve had I know I ask alot of you But swear you won’t be sad ‘Cause every memory we’ve shared The days we spent alone Just you and I and happy times Are all I need to know I’m gonna cross the universe To see the sights unseen If all I have to bring with me Are mem’ries of this scene Then I would be a richer man For having something sweet Bestowed upon my broken heart To fix it at the seams And as I go into the past And into futures yet to be I’ll look upon our younger days And smile at what I see ‘Cause every memory we’ve shared The love we used to make Just you and I and kisses fair Are all I need to take... So see you on the other side I hope this journey’s not The final one I’ll ever take So this farewell’s...not my last.

(M:) Tim Horton’s in hand, I’m the man Don’t matter at all that my band’s a sham (F: SEX BO-BOMB!) Penniless and broke? Psh, what a joke... That’s totally cool when you got my swag So what if bread makes you fat? I’m down with that I burn calories when I throw down with cats Who can’t take that I, a Canadian guy, Have the guts and the charisma to date some fly American girl with the rainbow colored hair Who had a sexy phase, and likes black underwear. Vegan Superman’s a joke; one gelato and he choked Pair of twins, don’t make me laugh Hipster pirate? Hipster trash. Macho movie star? A punk. Music Mogul Boss? He’s sunk! Rockstar ex still in my heart? Pretty glad that we’re apart! Oh and there’s that Asian high school girl in my life Not quite sure how to tell her that I’m seeing someone else... (F:) OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES (M:) Not now Knives...I’m in the middle of a song (F:) OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES WITH A BASEBALL BAT (M:I thought I just told you...) (M:) OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES WITH A...baseball bat...? (F: Told youuuu!) (Announcer voice: BONUS ROUND!) (~*Random Fight Dialogue*~) (M2:) OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES IT'S A BONUS TRACK OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES OMFG ZOMBIES WHATCHU THINK 'BOUT THAT!? Announcer voice: GAME OVER.
