Track Name: There Is No Dana... Only Zuul!
Alright you supernatural scumbags listen up
It's your old pal... Dr Venkman!
We're having a special this week on proton charges
So if someone ask's you if you're a god, you say...
There is no Dana... Only Zuul!

You dance in red
Patriot of privilege
You don’t give a fuck
(There is no Dana only Zuul)
Deny love
Deny everything but yourself
Preaching honor, you make me sick

This is a message that you bring
I can see clearly you win

Dance in red
Patriot of privilege
You don’t give a fuck

Deny love
Deny everything but yourself
There is no honor in this

This is a message that you bring
I can see clearly you win
Listen for messages you bring
I can see clearly who wins

Watch me suffer
The true monster
What did you become?
You left me here alone

Cracks fill the spaces where idols once stood of you, my dear
I am still waiting, watching this world till the end, of time
Cracks fill the spaces where idols once stood of you, my dear
I am still waiting, watching this world till the end

Where are your hopes?
Where are your fears?
Where are your dreams?
They all disappeared
Track Name: Bob Saget's Funhouse
These years, cut through skin & bone
Lost cause, seeking out a home
Bad blood, the hint of red decay
This bitter taste of your yesterdays

Cut through this red tape, all that remains are these pieces
Of a life lived in memory, haunting me right to this day

Cut though this red tape, all that remains are these pieces
Of a life lived in memory, haunting me right to this day
If this house it could speak, it would scream out in vain at these years gone by
But this house is now empty, only the memory remains.

These years they fade
Lost cause to blame
This bad blood stains
Bob Saget’s name
Track Name: Not If You're The Last Girl On Earth...
***stains and a broken heart
Not if you were the last girl on earth
Silent heart beats alone
Here is my oceanic suicide

Why did you let us suffer
Left with the bitter taste of sulphur
You sold your soul down the river
Our earth become death

Left us all behind, to birth your empire
These seasons all became the same
We live (we love) but we’re gone and fading
Cannot survive on grey oxygen

We watched the world die
Wanderers of the dying ocean
And you scream to God- and you scream to god
Track Name: Blood-Red State Of A Nation
We are the lonely ones
The scarecrows in the fields
Our land consumes itself
And we are left to yield
We walked a thousand days
Survived a thousand nights
With soldiers at our out our heels
Salvation in our eyes

Will I ever forget this
Our nation cut in two
This fall is oh so relentless
This falling rain
This falling rain
Of red that I see through

We are forsaken sons
Our hearts are left to bleed
The rulers of this land
Make sure our fates are sealed
We fought a thousand days
And lost too many lives
The soldiers razed our fields
We left our lives behind

Will I ever forget this
Our nation cut in two
This fall is oh so relentless
This falling rain
This falling rain
Of red that I see through

We watched the ocean die
The rivers bled
And no one cried this time
Yeah we watched it die
The forest burned
And no one questioned why
