TS YOU LITTLE BASTARD
Track Name: 8. Polleneers
When the bees wake up in the morning,
there is only one thing on their mind,
how to increase honey production,
and ensure the future of their kind.

As he warms his wings in the sunshine,
he knows exactly what a bee should do,
he knows to fly from flower to flower,
and head home when afternoon is through.

They stay inside the hive when it's raining hard outside,
telling tales of brave bees from the past.
How legendary bees had to sacrifice their lives,
and sting folks when the hive was being harassed.

When it comes to picking up pollen,
a bee will beat you every single time,
cause you'll get bored and do something different,
but bees have perfect simple one track minds.

When evening comes a bee will get so drowsy,
they go to bed quite early every night,
they fall asleep with no hesitation,
and dream about tomorrow mornings flight.

They stay inside the hive when it's raining hard outside,
telling tales of brave bees from the past.
How legendary bees had to sacrifice their lives,
and sting folks when the hive was being harassed.
Track Name: 9. Molt 45
There's no way you could ever catch me.
There's no way you could ever see me.
I'm stuck between two layers of time and space.

They stay up late to see the sun rise.
They plan ahead some things to improvise.
They soak their keys in bowls of lemonade.

I'll splice my DNA for shark teeth.
I'll break them biting things without a care.
I know there's more teeth down inside my gums.

These butterflies are big enough to ride.
Just grab that abdomen and hold on tight.
Fix up antenna with some new headlights.

If water can slow don the light rays,
and light rays go faster than time,
refracted rainbows are a friend of mine.

You built those homemade glasses out of ice.
Survival skills for those with bad eyesight.
Your icy iris never worked quite right.

We heard the molting of tarantulas.
You'd think it makes now sound,
it can't, but does.

Everything makes sound if it's quite enough.
