about

I like the idea of what went on in this project. How friendships are being kept alive in this world, often flourishing at distances, more so than before for some people, by moderate use of computers... I've managed to keep in touch and actually collaborate with a number of people I'd have lost touch with years ago without internet. You just need to know what you want from it when you enter. A number of great production minds put forth their time and effort to complete this. Thank you all for being so crucial in this project's evolution.
-Seth

Friend Producers Lyrics

PUKE IN RIDES

It's time to get it out in a happy yes!

It's time to get it out there
Get it out there

Freed up the souls to march into tomorrow

Puke in rides then try again later
Ride ride ride ride ride

Squeeze and squoosh in the dumbwaiter
Wide, I am too wide
Once inside I yank the lever
Takes me to topside
Where I look far 'cross the valley
I see far and glide

Puke in rides then try again later
Ride ride ride ride ride

One time I got into a 12 legged octopus
Each of its feet had seats
The seats spun around
Legs went up and down
The whole octopus turned on its side
My belly turned jelly
And I started yelling
"get me off of this AHHHH!!!"
The guy started laughter
Then made it go faster
Till he got my meal on his shoe
Plus a little goo...

Puke in rides then try again later
Ride ride ride ride ride

Puke in rides, eat,
Then try again later
Ride ride ride ride ride

MOMMY ALWAYS MOMMY

They trained and they teased us until we were docile
Made to believe in a will to survive
How can I explain the insane we existed, and what this did
Reprecussed, rediscussed and double fisted

Mommy will always be Mommy
Mommy will always be Mommy

I look to the future and what do I see?
I was instilled with a will to collide
With throttle reversed, a thirst for the glide
Don't hit the break, you'll just spin with the tide

Mommy will always be Mommy
Mommy will always be Mommy

I came and I went to an alien castle
They gave me a map to the internet sea
It pointed the way to an infinite treasure,
but numbers and digits are all I can see
Letters and numbers are all I can see
Numbers and digits are all I can see

Mommy will always be Mommy
Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy

Pack it away for another day
Soon you will see with a different eye
Pack it away for a summer's day
Soon you will see how the will survives

Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy
Mommy will always be Mommy
Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy
Mommy will always be Mommy

TWO HANDS

Two hands, two hands
Sculpting her clay gingerly
Two hands, two hands
Making our way, wait and see
Two hands, three hearts
are all that we need to make a start
Two hands, two hands
Now you're ready to stand on your own

We are family whether or not you're friends with me
Growing slowly, learning about where we meet
Two hands, three hearts
A spark of a thought became a leap
Two hands, two hands
Learn how to play hide and seek

It's not so bad
Not as hard as it could be
and I'm searching to find
a new way, a new mind
I've got something to say,
but I can't figure out
the right words
or the right shape
No, I'm making a sound,
and it comes from the heart
I believe, I believe!!

Two hands, two hands
Shaping the sand carefully
Two hands shape sand
Sculpting our time by the sea
Sea sand, unplanned
Making our way, day to day
Today I'm tan from playing in sand
by the bay...

It's not so bad
Not as hard as it could be
and I'm searching to find
a new way, a new mind
I've got something to say,
but I can't figure out
the right words
or the right shape
No, I'm making a sound,
and it comes from the heart
I believe, I believe!!

MAN OF ACTION

When the world is not alright
When pain is all you can see
You're hurt or broke or sad or sick
You can depend on me

I look into your eyes
Without a doubt you free
You firm my foot and guide my blind
When suddenly I see

Into the man I can
Out from the smouldered ashes
Into the man I can become
and take the firey action
Becoming a man of action
Becoming a man of action

When the tired of the night
It bring the easy, wicked weak inside
A fear come round and make me drown
I doubt the life I lead

But then you whisper in my ear
You see inside the central light that shines through
You say the right or sit in silence
When suddenly I see

Into the man I can
Out from the smouldered ashes
Into the man I can become
and take the firey action
Becoming a man of action
Becoming a man of action

Lift me up
I lift you so high you can see
Far off beyond all land and the sea
I lift you up, you do it for me...

... and now you're all I see
We've gone out past the stars beyond
We teach our souls to build a world
You can depend on me
You can depend on me

Into the man I can
Out from the smouldered ashes
Into the man I can become
and take the firey action
Becoming a man of action
Becoming a man of action

GOODSIDE

I've always been a weirdo
I've got no place to go
That's great? That's great.
I'm here? You're here.

I wanna make you proud
I'm gonna make you proud

Get to look into the great theories in your eyes

Lounging in a dumbwaiter
Will it pick me?
Will I be the dumbwaiter?
Is it me?

Move quick, rise the house and run into, run into
Rise the house and move into, move into

Take your brains out and leave them behind
There'll be no more need for them where we're going to
Imagine yourself in space then take the you out of it
There'll be no more need for you or your scattered mind
or your scattered mind

How do I get on your goodside Mama
How do I get on your goodside
How do I get on your goodside Mama
Do you even have a goodside?

Rise the house and run into, run into

Move quick, rise the house and run into, run into
Rise the house and move into, move into

Change your bullets for a freeze frame in time
There's a globe light tickling stars in the corner of your room
Imagine yourself in time then take the you out of it
There'll be no more need for you or your rabbit's mind
Chew your carrots blind...

How do I get on your goodside Mama
How do I get on your goodside
How do I get on your goodside Mama
Do you even have a goodside?

WHO BOTTLES

Oh to be in love again
It's been a long time
I wonder if you could be the one
You make me smile

A search for the golden one who shines
Shines bright through the night
I look for the one who'll make me strong
Set everything right

I know I should be looking in myself for strength
When I feel so alone in the night
I feel like I'm picking up the pieces
of a heart that shattered when I was alive

Who bottles the bleeding of life and love?
Who bottles it? Who bottles it?

It's not that I'm feeling sad
I'm doing good
I've got a roof over my head
It's better than it could be
Those who are blinded by the love
are afraid to fight
They know what a precious gift we have
A warm golden light

I know I should be looking in myself for strength
When I feel so alone in the night
I feel like I'm picking up the pieces
of a heart that shattered when I was alive

Who bottles the bleeding of life and love?
Who bottles it? Who bottles it?

NICKEL

Running away downtown
Seeking to get away
Away from myself
Needed to slow it way down
Good to have a wander
Put what I have to do on the shelf

Baby, when I got there
All I had to do was put my foot outta the door
As soon as I hit the street
People were pounding their feet
Looking for something to eat

I kinda put my collar up
Hands in the pockets as I hunched up the top of my spine
My eyes were all looking down
That's when I found the round thing on the ground

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel for free

I looked at it in the sun
Something was funny 'bout how the heck it felt in my hand
I squinted my eyes from here
In the glare from the sun
I could barely make out the year
One thousand, Nine hundred and seventy-five
The year when my body officially became alive
Was a fetus in seventy-four
That's a little bit more
Funny, never thought that before

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel
I cannot blame it on the year I was born

As soon as I dropped it in
A guy comes up toward me
With a desperate look in his eyes
He looks me up and down
Then says with a frown
"What are you? Some sort of clown?"
After making fun of me
He shows me his I.D.
As if that gives him authority
Asks me to share some change
In a moment of shame, I lie
and say I've got none to spare.

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel

Anyway, I kept wandering 'round
Wasn't quite sure what I wanted to make out of this night
At one point I heard a sound
In the back of a car was a woman and a child barely born
She rolled the window down
Tried to speak
A trickle of water, it fell down her cheek
I looked in my pockets then
All I had was the nickel
Me and my hand handed it over

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel
I cannot blame it on the year I was born.

IDIOT CONVENTION

Wanna get easy going
Let the music flow
There's a reason for it
That I really don't know

Yeah I really don't know
Imagine there's a reason for anything, everything
But I really don't know
Don't know if you know

A gadget makes doing quicker
A dagger makes a good sticker
The quicker the sticker
The sicker the wound

A bicker can be fickle
When you tickle the wound
Better to just giggle and kiss
Jiggle and dance around the room

A time to be mindless,
Forget all your self
Let the spirit be bindless
Leave your thoughts on the shelf

Freedom, where are where are where are you?
Inside.

An Idiot Convention
In the center of town
A spiffy new invention
Makes you look like a clown
Yeah you look like a clown
Except for the frown
You could make us all laugh
If you'd get up off your ass
Yeah, get up off your ass
Take a look around you
Do you like what you see
Are you better than me?

A time to be mindless,
Forget all your self
Let the spirit be bindless
Leave your thoughts on the shelf

Freedom, where are where are where are you?
Inside.


CITIES ON THEIR WAY

Hello beauty, hello love
Hello Rasputin, time to wake up
Not in the mood for it
Which way is up?
Where is the good in this?
When will it stop?

I'd change my ways for you if you'd just stop
It can wait, it all can wait

...and nodding's easier to do than no

Go below, not a thing to worry 'bout I know
Later on we'll watch a screen ah
Through my window flies upon it
While about like Cupid's comet

Wedding starts, my fist is ready
For cities on their way
The cities on their way
Where they'll go tastes like spaghetti
The cities on their way
The cities on their way
Yes, I know, I'm getting ready
For cities on their way
The cities on their way

Hello infinity, hello black hole
I changed my ways for you, please show your soul
I changed my ways for you so that you'd slow
It can wait, it all can wait

...and nodding's easier to do than no
Later on we'll watch a screen ah
Through my window flies upon it
While about like Cupid's comet

Wedding starts, my fist is ready
For cities on their way
The cities on their way
Where they'll go tastes like spaghetti
The cities on their way
The cities on their way
Yes, I know, I'm getting ready
For cities on their way
The cities on their way

GRACEFULLY
I'll bow out gracefully, gracefully
I haven't got what it takes to make it in your world, your world

Without a doubt it wasn't a waste
How gracefully I got a taste, made mistakes
I faked it in your world, your world

I found the safest place where me and me collide
My world, it's my world, this is where I hide

I feel no animosity, simply grateful
Here in outer space
Gone without a trace
I made it away from your world, your world, your world

Ah...

I'm wide awake now, this moment is my fate
I'm wide awake now, this fortune is a choice
I'm wide awake now, this fortune is my fate
I'm wide awake now, this moment is a choice
This fortune is my fate, this moment is a choice

I found the safest place where me and me collide
My world, it's my world, this is where I hide
Get your own world, I've got mine, this is how I ride.

Makes you look like a clown
Yeah you look like a clown
Except for the frown
You could make us all laugh
If you'd get up off your ass
Yeah, get up off your ass
Take a look around you
Do you like what you see
Are you better than me?

A time to be mindless,
Forget all your self
Let the spirit be bindless
Leave your thoughts on the shelf

Freedom, where are where are where are you?
Inside.
Track Name: Man of Action
When the world is not alright
When pain is all you can see
You're hurt or broke or sad or sick
You can depend on me

I look into your eyes
Without a doubt you free
You firm my foot and guide my blind
When suddenly I see

Into the man I can
Out from the smouldered ashes
Into the man I can become
and take the firey action
Becoming a man of action
Becoming a man of action

When the tired of the night
It bring the easy, wicked weak inside
A fear come round and make me drown
I doubt the life I lead

But then you whisper in my ear
You see inside the central light that shines through
You say the right or sit in silence
When suddenly I see

Into the man I can
Out from the smouldered ashes
Into the man I can become
and take the firey action
Becoming a man of action
Becoming a man of action

Lift me up
I lift you so high you can see
Far off beyond all land and the sea
I lift you up, you do it for me...

... and now you're all I see
We've gone out past the stars beyond
We teach our souls to build a world
You can depend on me
You can depend on me

Into the man I can
Out from the smouldered ashes
Into the man I can become
and take the firey action
Becoming a man of action
Becoming a man of action
Track Name: Nickel
Running away downtown
Seeking to get away
Away from myself
Needed to slow it way down
Good to have a wander
Put what I have to do on the shelf

Baby, when I got there
All I had to do was put my foot outta the door
As soon as I hit the street
People were pounding their feet
Looking for something to eat

I kinda put my collar up
Hands in the pockets as I hunched up the top of my spine
My eyes were all looking down
That's when I found the round thing on the ground

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel for free

I looked at it in the sun
Something was funny 'bout how the heck it felt in my hand
I squinted my eyes from here
In the glare from the sun
I could barely make out the year
One thousand, Nine hundred and seventy-five
The year when my body officially became alive
Was a fetus in seventy-four
That's a little bit more
Funny, never thought that before

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel
I cannot blame it on the year I was born

As soon as I dropped it in
A guy comes up toward me
With a desperate look in his eyes
He looks me up and down
Then says with a frown
"What are you? Some sort of clown?"
After making fun of me
He shows me his I.D.
As if that gives him authority
Asks me to share some change
In a moment of shame, I lie
and say I've got none to spare.

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel

Anyway, I kept wandering 'round
Wasn't quite sure what I wanted to make out of this night
At one point I heard a sound
In the back of a car was a woman and a child barely born
She rolled the window down
Tried to speak
A trickle of water, it fell down her cheek
I looked in my pockets then
All I had was the nickel
Me and my hand handed it over

Ran away downtown, found a nickel
Ran away downtown, found a nickel
I cannot blame it on the year I was born.
Track Name: Who Bottles
Oh to be in love again
It's been a long time
I wonder if you could be the one
You make me smile

A search for the golden one who shines
Shines bright through the night
I look for the one who'll make me strong
Set everything right

I know I should be looking in myself for strength
When I feel so alone in the night
I feel like I'm picking up the pieces
of a heart that shattered when I was alive

Who bottles the bleeding of life and love?
Who bottles it? Who bottles it?

It's not that I'm feeling sad
I'm doing good
I've got a roof over my head
It's better than it could be
Those who are blinded by the love
are afraid to fight
They know what a precious gift we have
A warm golden light

I know I should be looking in myself for strength
When I feel so alone in the night
I feel like I'm picking up the pieces
of a heart that shattered when I was alive

Who bottles the bleeding of life and love?
Who bottles it? Who bottles it?
Track Name: Gracefully
I'll bow out gracefully, gracefully
I haven't got what it takes to make it in your world, your world

Without a doubt it wasn't a waste
How gracefully I got a taste, made mistakes
I faked it in your world, your world

I found the safest place where me and me collide
My world, it's my world, this is where I hide

I feel no animosity, simply grateful
Here in outer space
Gone without a trace
I made it away from your world, your world, your world

Ah...

I'm wide awake now, this moment is my fate
I'm wide awake now, this fortune is a choice
I'm wide awake now, this fortune is my fate
I'm wide awake now, this moment is a choice
This fortune is my fate, this moment is a choice

I found the safest place where me and me collide
My world, it's my world, this is where I hide
Get your own world, I've got mine, this is how I ride.
