Track Name: Arctica
I'm just a little moosey
and I'll eat my water weeds
The last thing that I'll be wanting is
another corporate mouth to feed

My friends are all caribous
and they live to migrate
but now they're all penned in
don't cage the magistrate

They build it, and sink it
and it happens all the time
I guess we'll just have to
build us another pipeline

La da da, la da da da
La da da, la da da da da
La da da, la da da da
La da da da da da da

I ain't much for destruction
unless it breeds corruption
these seismic senses do prescribe
volcanic greed eruption

My mountain melts so quickly
it's warmer every day
and each year, machinery
give us a bit of hell to pay

La da da, la da da da
La da da, la da da da da
La da da, la da da da
La da da da da da da

They build it, and sink it
and it happens all the time
I guess we'll just have to
build us another pipeline

La da da, la da da da
La da da, la da da da da
La da da, la da da da
La da da da da da da
Track Name: Speaking My Language
Even in low light I could see the look in her eye was goblinesque
but what a pretty mask she was wearing
I took a mental picture which could explain all the rest
but there was no end to my staring

I don't want to sound obscene
but the way that she looked
I could tell
just what she mean

Girl, you're speaking my language
Baby yeah, you're speaking my language.

Could have been a word she said but I think that it was only a sound
it rang like church bells through the rafters
and then she pulled my arms and smiled me to the dancing ground
I will resist you never now nor after

I don't want to sound obscene
but the way that she looked
I could tell
just what she mean

Girl, you're speaking my language,
Yes, you're speaking my language
I don't know where you're from but you're speaking my language
Yeah, you're speaking my language.

I don't want to sound obscene
but the way that she looked
I could tell
just what she mean

Girl, you're speaking my language,
Yes, you're speaking my language
I don't know where you're from but you're speaking my language
Yeah, you're speaking my language.
Track Name: Black Market Friday
Bust out my foakleys
and they fall apart
I got a broken-ass car and it
just won't start
I planted all my magic beans
but none of them sprouted
now I'm building up a water tower
just in case it be droughtin'

I got a sweater
from the alleyway
and socks from a crackhead
yes it pays to be thrifty

I get everything I need
I get all that you see
on black market Friday

Got my bootleg media
and it's all got scratches
and these pants are breaking out
in a case of the patches
my baggy of piranhas baby
they all cannibalized
I didn't know they had it in 'em
such a tame look in their eyes

I got a sweater
from the alleyway
and socks from a crackhead
yes it pays to be thrifty

I get everything I need
I get all that you see
on black market Friday

I get everything I need
I get all that you see
on black market Friday
Track Name: La Manera
Mi abuelo me dijó
cuando era niño
no todo que brillo es oro
Mi abuelo me dijó
cuando era niño
no todo que lastime
es malo

Mi abuela me dijó
cuando era niño
no todo que luchan lo quieren
Mi abuela me dijó
cuando era niño
aunque los heroes se mueren

Lleva la cabeza en las nubes, cielo
y los pies en el suelo
Lleva la cabeza en las nubes,
y los pies en el suelo

Yo les digo a mis niños
porque son chicos
pues recuerdan las palabras de la sabia
Ellos me dijeron
porque son genios
que la guerra nos falta

Lleva la cabeza en las nubes, cielo
y los pies en el suelo
Lleva la cabeza en las nubes, cielo
y los pies en el suelo
Lleva la cabeza en las nubes, cielo
y los pies en el suelo
Lleva la cabeza en las nubes
y los pies en el suelo
