Track Name: Kyah!
“kyah! I’m going to be really late!

What happened to my alarm
I shouldn’t have to run this hard
I’m never one to procrastinate,
But when it comes to school I’m always running late

Cause I’ve
Gotta run
(Gotta run!)
Or else I’ll be late

Cause I’ve
Got to hurry
(Got to hurry!)
Why must it be this way?

I’ve got 7 minutes to make it south
Or else I’ll be burnt like the toast in my mouth
I hope nothing comes to slow me down
Like aliens, or a friend tripping me to the ground

Cause I’ve
Gotta run
(Gotta run!)
Or else I’ll be late

Cause I’ve
Got to hurry
(Got to hurry!)
Why must it be this way?

I’m late x4
So late x 5
1, 2, 3, 4!

Another day, another time crunch
I hope i didn’t forget my lunch
I’ve been told i make a bad impression
But i never seem to learn lesson

I’m running fast and my heart is pounding
I hope any minute, i’ll be rounding
The corner and see the gate
I can’t let anything stand in my way

Cause I’ve
Gotta run
(Gotta run!)
Or else I’ll be late

Cause I’ve
Got to hurry
(Got to hurry!)
Why must it be this way?

I'm late
Track Name: Living On Ramen
People stare every time they see me buy it
Because everyone knows I'm on a death trip diet
It may have no nutrition but it's got loads of calories
I don't care if you judge, I just need something to eat!

Because I'm broke I can't afford nutrition
Please don't growl again
I'm living on ramen
Forgive me stomach, sumimasen
Forgive me for my sin
Because I'm living on ramen

It's my saving grace, that perfect starchy square
As it spins around the microwave I just stop and stare
Every single night I'll just slurp it down
I drink so much broth I think I may just drown!

It's like I've got a kind of condition
A form of self affliction!
Cause i'm living on ramen
Forgive me stomach, sumimasen
Forgive me for my sin
Because I'm living on ramen

I don't know just what went wrong
It’s like I’ve got an addiction to Maruchan
I'm growing weak, and I never see the sun
And when I'm gone I'lljust be sodium!

If I keep up I think I'll turn Asian
I know I'll meet my end
Cause I'm living on ramen
Forgive me stomach, sumimasen
Forgive me for my sin
Because I'm living on ramen
Track Name: Please, Teacher
You know just how to speak my language
You know just how to keep me engaged
Show me anything, show me the world
You can show me anything of yours...

(chorus)
Sensei! Sensei!
Tell me what to say
Teach me! Teach me!
I'll do anything!

Tell me anything, and I'll take notes
You can tell me your dreams and hopes
And I love all of your asides
Because I want to be by your side

(chorus)

And when I raise my hand
I want you to understand
If you say repeat after me
I'll follow you through wind and rain!

Please, teacher x 8

(chorus)

Sensei! Sensei!
Tell me what to say
sensei! sensei!
Please notice me!
Track Name: Sleep Is For The Weak
Some might say I have insomnia
Other say I'm just a zombie- Ha!
I see no point in wasting time to dream
Tell me, Why rest when you only need caffeine?

Cause sleep it’s just a waste of time
I spend it all on the finer things in life!

H-Games, Internet!
Who needs sleep?
It's just not worth it
Cause sleep is for the weak!

Others say I need the outside world
But They don't see my friends in online boards
I have a non-stop party with my technology
I'll persist until I run out of HP!

Cause sleep it’s just a waste of time
I spend it all on the finer things in life!

H-Games, Internet!
Who needs sleep?
It's just not worth it
Cause sleep is for the weak!

I've got black circles around my eyes
But there's no way I'd rather live my life
They tell me I should get some sleep tonight
but I tell them I'll sleep when I die

Cause sleep it's just a waste of time
I spend it all on the finer things in life!

H-Games, Internet!
Who needs sleep?
It's just not worth it
Cause sleep is for the weak!

Gonna stay up and grind RPGs to glory
Tonight we'll party like hikikomoris!

H-Games, Internet!
Who needs sleep?
It's just not worth it
Cause sleep is for the weak!

H-Games, Internet!
Who needs sleep?
It's just not worth it
Cause sleep is for the weak!

Go!
Track Name: Juvenile Escapism
A reclusive Teenage time killer
... what a waste
Day after day after day
just looking for another escape

What's the point in participation,
If the world won't change?
"Why would I want to live
In this world I hate?"

It's a hard life staying in denial
Even if I hate what I see
I won't hide just so that I can smile
And lie about conditions so obscene

(chorus)
We don't need to be complacent; listen
We don't need Juvenile escapism
We don't have to hide in basement prisons
We don't need Juvenile escapism

Living your life only in fiction
... What a waste
These stories are so much more
Than an excuse for your escape

What's the point in learning,
If you won't change?
Why don't you want to be different
Than this world we hate?

It's a hard life staying in denial
Even if I hate what I see
I won't hide just so that I can smile
And lie about conditions so obscene

(chorus)

I may be timid. I may be nervous.
But I won't stand idle, Others don't deserve it

Don't stand for yourself
Stand for everyone else
That's felt just like you
Self-change is small but it's something we can do

Don't be quiet when others are stranded alone
Do what you know you should
And know when to say “No!”

No! Harassment
No! To shaming
No! To abuse
No! To this vicious cycle

No! No! No!

It's a hard life staying in denial
Even if I hate what I see
I won't hide just so that I can smile
And lie about conditions so obscene

(Chorus)

It's time we grow up, no more denial
Even if I hate what I see
I can't hide just so that I can smile
Someone has to change conditions so obscene

(Chorus)
Track Name: No Alternative
Hate never dies, It finds alternatives right?
The modern wave of twenty something anti-Semites
Say there's a war on traditional masculinity
"It's not racist it's white identity"

It's the new wave of hoodless Klansmen
A privileged white rage rebellion
Crying in fear of online feminism
Trying to brand racism as "realism"

This isn't a brand new take on life
It's no alternative!
This is just a better dressed reich
It's no alternative

So concerned these times are too PC
Maybe we just hate renamed Neo-nazis
"This world should be offensive; kids need to be tough"
If anyone disagrees they're just a cuck

This is no alternative,
this hatred isn't right
This isn’t a fight we should have to have
in these modern times

This isn't just anonymous hate speech
It's no alternative!
It's political action to force white hegemony
It's no alternative

It's a manifestation of selfish power
Encouraged by daddy Trump -
In his multi-billion dollar tower
We don't build walls, we tear them down
It's not about survival,
But I could care less if you weren't around

This is! No Alternative! x4

This is no alternative,
we don't need another reich
This isn’t a fight we should have to have
because we don't share color or kind

This isn't a brand new take on life
It's no alternative!
This is just a better dressed reich
It's no alternative

This isn't just anonymous hate speech
It's no alternative!
It's political action to force white hegemony
It's no alternative
Track Name: My Other Job Is Being A Magical Girl
You know making coffee isn't my only work
I protect you from nocturnal beings that lurk
I fight every night in my kawaii skirt
I wonder if you know would you be less of a jerk?

My other job is being a magical girl
Fighting with my life to save the world
Fighting in the night where I won't be heard
I protect you every night but I won't say a word!

Some might say my life's gone in the ditch
But life can't be perfect there's always a hitch
I still fight for my contract I don't regret the sales pitch
But what can you do when your life's a witch?

My other job is being a magical girl
Fighting with my life to save the world
Fighting in the night where I won't be heard
I protect you every night but I won't say a word!

Some say this world is only suffering
This world may be bleak, but I'm it's moral buffer
It's a rough job, but you know
Someone out there has to make a difference!

My other job is being a magical girl
Fighting with my life to save the world
Fighting in the night where I won't be heard
I protect you every night but I won't say a word!
Track Name: Make Nekos, Not Nukes
So we're beyond the reign of Reagan-San
yet we're still in still fear of the next great bomb
If its not Russia then it's Iran
Over 50 years and we learned nothing from Japan

We don’t need another Hiroshima
Isn't there enough radiation from Fukushima?
We don't need another Baka building bombs
Put your tax dollars where they really count!

Make Nekos!
Not nukes!
x4

Billions of dollars spent on supposed defense
Against a war that no one could win
Why have weapons of mass destruction
When you could have Nekos of genetic construction?

Make Nekos!
Not nukes!
x4

We don't need another Baka building bombs
Put your tax dollars where they really count
Why have weapons of mass destruction?
When you could have Nekos of genetic construction?

Make Nekos
Not nukes!
x8
Track Name: You Know
You're precious to me, and it keeps me sane
I'll keep my darling safe
I'll protect you from their screams of pain
Don't worry it's just part of the game

All I need to be is the center of your world
I'll cut through any meddling girl
I'll control your every breath and word
I'd break beyond the universe

(chorus)
You know I'm all you ever want
you know I'm all you ever need
You know I'm all you can ever get
Don't worry no need to fret...

With me you'll never face a threat
You know you're mine, and your future is set

Life was pointless until the moment we met
and I'm the fate you must accept
I'll know your every trouble, every breath
understand that it's me or death

(chorus)
With me you'll never be seen again
You know you're mine, and wandering is a sin

I may be jealous or insecure
But without me you'd never endure
I won't let you get close to some whore
I'm all you need and nothing more!

(chorus)
With me you'll never face a threat
You know you're mine, and your future is set
Track Name: The Grey Sheep
Too radical for the masses
Too reserved for the outcasts
Stuck in between...
I guess I'm the grey sheep

I don't like the way of the world
And I couldn't stand the pawns on the board
But then again, I don't feel at home with the scene
I was out for educated action, not drugs and drinking

Stuck in between - I'm the grey sheep
I don't have a scene I'm just the grey sheep

Too nerdy to be a punk, Too punk to be a nerd
I want to think, not get drunk I want change and to be heard
I've got no clique to call my own
I'm different but surely I can't be alone

The dismissed blurring lines- I'm the grey sheep
Lost between the groups defined - the grey sheep

I can't relate to the youth
and I’m Too young to fit with generations passed
But at least I know that in truth
I can't be the first, and surely not the last

The grey sheep, the grey sheep
They call me, the grey sheep

Lost in the means I'm the grey sheep
I don’t have a scene I’m just the grey sheep

Lost in the means I'm the grey sheep
If you understand then scream
I am the grey sheep!
Track Name: Tremors
I struggle with anxiety
And I can't overcome this feeling
My mind starts racing
And heart starts hearts beating
You know that I can't help but think
Oh god! what if someone sees me!?

These Tremors shooting through my hand
This nervous shaking that I can't stand
These Tremors start overtake me
This defect always seems to plague me

I can't breathe as my thoughts race
I've lost control of my hearts pace
Can I find some hidden place?
I can't let them see my face
Why can't I find a mental brace
Why must these feelings leave a trace?

These Tremors shooting through my hand
This nervous shaking that I can't stand
These Tremors start overtake me
This defect always seems to plague me

Tremors have my hands possessed
Through this my feelings manifest
Tremors worsen my disorder
And leave me hiding in the corner
Track Name: Uncertainty
Wouldn't it be nice, If everything were black and white
If we could solve the world's problems, As simple as wrong and right
If it could be absolved with three minutes of sonic fury
Free of care, miscalculation, or uncertainty

It's good versus evil, The never ending fight
Life is so much easier, when lived in stereotypes

Such disdain for complexity in the quest for individuality
But we're the god chosen society, no need to fear uncertainty
No need to fear uncertainty, No need to fear uncertainty

Wouldn't life be easier if you could find fulfillment in a job
Or live For faith in an all knowing god
If you had clear reason for existence
all Summed up into one simple thesis

Accuracy and precision are at an all time high
Because our truth can't incur circumstance or compromise

Just ignore discrepancy It's not truth if there's relativity
Details cause anxiety so discard any uncertainty
Discard any uncertainty, Discard any uncertainty

Wouldn't it be nice if we could live for more than material?
Gain unity and live for a higher call
If the truth of the future weren't so abysmal
If we could find certainty to the last decimal

So, pick a color pick a team life's easy when led by an entity
You're following authority so no need to fear uncertainty
No need to fear uncertainty, No need to fear uncertainty

In fear of anxiety discard all autonomy
Isn't life easy, without knowledge or uncertainty?
Life without uncertainty, Life without uncertainty
Life without uncertainty, Life without uncertainty
Track Name: Rekka(劣化)
Hours wasted staring at the ceiling
Contemplating life with prescribed meaning
Untidy, uncaring, undone, and unheard
Singular in purpose, but still I'm unsure

Is this what imposed I'm into feeling?
Or simply what I get for my being
A tool is only as good as its work
And dolls aren't meant to say a word

Dispensable, Disposable
A perfect flower, shouldn't degrade
Expendable, Inessential
Incapable of the purpose, for which I was made

Dispensable, Disposable
A perfect flower, shouldn't degrade
Expendable, Inessential
Incapable of the purpose, for which I was made

Replaceable, and unstable
Produced en masse, but I'm defective parts
Incapable, and disgraceful
A shamed existence ends, from a soulless start
Track Name: Lost In Time
I was timid, I was frail
I was weak, and I was pale
I couldn't stand on my own
And thought I was alone

You stood for me like no one else
When I couldn't take care of myself
I wanted to become just like you
But I was blind you were in trouble too

No matter what I tried to say
I had to watch the sand slip away
No matter how many times Id have to repeat all this
I swear... I'll protect you!

(chorus)
Somehow; we lost sight
I only wanted you to be alright
but now it's lost in time
It's always lost in time

I'd pay any price,
Because you're the reason I have the will to fight
But now it's lost in time
It's always lost in time

Every time I watched you slip away
I fought harder, and harder to change
I just wanted, to be someone of use
But I was always too late to help you

Now you're in trouble, stuck in hell
I only have my grief filled soul to sell
Things decay with time...
And now I'm left... To watch you die

(chorus)

Because no one knows your fate
And I'm always too late to change
My grief keeps looping
But I'm still useless

No matter what I tried to say
I had to watch the sand slip away
No matter how many times Id have to
repeat all this
I swear... I'll protect you!

(chorus)

If you could feel half my anger
If you could feel half my sorrow
If you could find a way out of it all
Then I would follow

If I could only conquer time!
If I could only conquer time...
