bsberzerker One of the sweetest songs I've ever heard. I can tell it came right from the fart-I mean heart. Favorite track: Six Years Six Inches (Song 3).

Greetings! 03:48
Greetings! This is the first time that I've written this song I know it may seem like there's a plan but I don't have one There's quite the responsibility on me to be quick with wit and hooks to bring you in This is the other part of the song It won't last quite as long But it's more catchy, you'll find and, believe me, in good time the urge to splurge on music of mine (Oh, I get it; he's hypnotizing us through song to support his art!) You're still here! That's amazing! I guess I can be entertaining if I just listen to myself and I forget what I've built up in fear Back to the other part of the song (Again?) You get my thanks for coming along (You're welcome!) This ride/write/rite I've made you're now my slave (What?) and we are almost done But first a pensive third verse Maybe one day I won't have to sing about this And by this, I mean this song I'll flow with ease I'll see my dreams with eyes open Off the top of my head I'm glad I'm not dead I've got a family that mostly believes in me It could be worse I could be stuck inside a hearse (You just used that joke!) alive (Oh, ew.) One last promise to you, my dear The rest of the songs on the album will be more clear (You shouldn't make promises that you can't keep.) I'm sorry. (You're so Canadian!)

We'll always have each other if we like it or not I know you like no other and that's saying a lot You're often on my mind it's probably time I forgot You'll always be my brother but what else have I got We might not always see eye-to-eye But that's only because I'm the taller guy Through it all I wouldn't change a thing Unless I could Blanket forts and wrestling have seen us grow old And probably'd still happen in the same household You're raising a great daughter, I am proud and in awe Just understand like us, her teens might have some chutzpah We might not really crave the same foods But we can always agree on Big Shiny Tunes (woo-hoo) Portal, Marathon, and Nanosaur I just wish you had a proper controller I know it's jokes but this does come from my heart You smell of farts We'll always have each other if we like it or not I know you like no other and that's saying a lot You're never far away because we live really close You'll always be my brother so I wrote you this prose We'll always have each other I know you like no other You're often on my mind You'll always be my brother and I like that a lot

​Pineapple tastes good on pizza, I don't care what you say and I believe in a mandatory Taco Tuesday it's gif not jif roof not ruff and briefs to keep me dry mushroms are freakin' great and I can't stand the word penalize These are my opinions You're allowed to disagree But not with a recording I won't hear your plea Maybe send a postcard An email will do Just understand you should spend time on the things that matter to you For me it's toilet paper going over And admitting selfies are fun Unicorns aren't related to horses Knowing there was room on the door for both Jack and Rose Everything beats a Windows phone A hot dog is a submarine; still the weirdest kind of meat I sometimes enjoy Nickelback Using the emoji hands I'll take dogs over cats cake over pie and waffles over pancakes 'cause the ridges hold my syrup so well These are my opinions You're allowed to disagree But not while I'm performing That's not cool socially Maybe send an email An angry Tweet will do Just understand you should spend time on the things that matter to you We should all treat each other a little better Stop sweating over my favourite weather (overcast) I haven't seen Star Wars, so I guess Star Trek's better? Does that make you mad? Does it make you mad that I'll always put pineapple on my pizza If you don't like it then you can just take it off 'Cause it's pretty nice of me to be buying you pizza

You asked me how long I'd been single but I don't know how to respond May not want this to go anywhere Let it float away Let it be calm Live my life at ease Whatever it takes to be me Feel at home alone Freedom in my head, just livin' in the breeze Livin' in the breeze Would you spend time talking about this and that tonight Feels good to have you here to hold you close all's right in your arms tonight Live my life at ease Whatever it takes to be me Feel at home alone Freedom in my head, just livin' in the breeze Hope you can understand the way I really am the way I like you near Maybe some day more Wouldn't want to lose you now Appreciate you here Don't want to seem unclear Live my life at ease Whatever it takes to be me Feel at home alone Freedom in my head, just livin' in the breeze Livin' in the breeze

Bionic Man 04:38
I was always a good kid Didn't get into much trouble On the baseball team my hits were supreme But one time the ball hit hard and I fell to the ground It caused a chain reaction when something started to swell They rushed me to the doc My first referral was clear Remove my appendix 'fore it burst out of my rear Now I'm an appendix-less boy I'm an appendix-less boy I'm an appendix-less boy That's okay I don't need it Fast forward a year I'm dared to lick footgear Was young and naive and now I do grieve Wisdom teeth and tonsils are not here So I'm an appendix-less kid and a tonsil-less kid and a wisdom teeth-less kid That's okay I don't need 'em College was carefree A supportive fraternity Till late one moon passed out in the common room My friends took my kidney I never thought it could go this poorly I was abducted by an other-worldling They operated on me with what, I couldn't see I did submit They made some slits Replaced all my organs with intergalactic bits Now I'm a bionic man I'm a bionic man I'm a bionic man At least I still got my hands to play this song Bionic man Bionic man Bionic man Oh I'm a bionic man Food with the fam at the game Turns out bionic lung gives you a good name It all turned out well covered in corndog smell (mmm, ow!) I bit my tongue and it hurt like hell Now I'm a tongue-less bionic man I'm a tongue-less bionic man I'm a tongue-less bionic man That's okay I don't need it Bionic man Bionic man Bionic man Oh I'm a bionic man

I need to write I need to write I need to write a short song I need a sing I need a sing I need a sing-along This is my sing-along This is my sing-along This is my sing-along song I need to eat I need to eat I need to eat some food I need to focus I need to focus I need to focus this song This is my sing-along This is my sing-along This is my sing-along song I know it's simple but that's all right with me 'Cause I've still got eight more songs to write next week So relax and enjoy My sing-along song My sing-along song My sing-along song My sing-along song My sing-along song

Shot Clock 02:36
It's like a bomb's tickin' up in my head I'm startin' to see red maybe I should've stayed in bed instead no I gotta figure it out live my life do it right with eyes locked on straight sights feel the pressure come and hit the threshold uncover myself who I am and find my gold before I get old man, I just wanna be young is that too much to ask for me 'cause it's never been done it's how shooting a gun is like losing the one understanding what it's like to go on with none and I'm stunned as I sit and stare at the chase all of the wage couldn't break my way out of this cage sad thing is, man y'know, it probably could but does satisfaction happen if you think it's no good just wanna understand wanna live my life keep up the fight do it right with eyes locked on straight sights just wanna figure it out open my mouth wiggle my doubts and reload yo if nothing's perfect then why do we practice what are we after what is this hack mess and who is this actress pourin' her life away gag a day give it all for another person's story it's a foray on all life's innocence gotta make some sense reinvent my two cents here for a little change compromise rearrange man, am I derranged but here's a look what I've done pulled the trigger to my lung breathin' my thoughts out into a sweet lyrical rhythm turn ambitions into missions I am stricken with provision and as long as I'm efficient my rendition's ammunition shoot my vision in a prism and it's more than none lock my body in a prison and I'm halfway done just wanna understand gotta live my life keep up the fight do it right locked eyes on straight sights just wanna figure it out wiggle my doubts open my mouth and explode

Escalators 03:38
There's a hole in my heart full of hope that this shark is chasing me in shallow waters I feel as much ease as bees breathing Febreze as we squeeze the puke from their daughters Whoa Where are the dolphins when you need them Whoa What's going on with us Whoa Where are you when the sky is spent The escalator of life I'm covered in spice the food of mosquitos a sugar rush ending in spasm I've come so far the wrong way down the road and I know there's more I can't fathom Whoa Where are the dolphins when you need them Whoa What's going on with us Whoa Where are you when the sky is spent Whoa Ride the escalator to heaven Take the highway to the sky Sliding into oblivion as the water rushes by Pushing all around it Grind it all away Feel the power of the wind sailing in this wondrous ship into that which no one knows Where are the dolphins when you need them What's going on with us Where are you when the sky is spent Whoa Where are the dolphins 'Cause I need them now Where are you when the sky is spent The escalator of life

I Am Mine 01:41
and I pace back and forth in my room I am blooming a flower in my head at what cost, I can't see but I'm sure it'd be worthy to you for I won't be abused I'll be done when I'm done I'll have fun when I want to have fun I'll be yours but right now I am mine and I think about the times we have had and I know in my heart there'll be more in the autumn when it's clear I'll be glad that you're still here but for now please believe in my course I'll be done when I'm done I'll have fun when I want to have fun I'll be yours but right now I am mine I am mine

Porky the pig has a secret life His uber-pinkness helps him a lot By night he morphs into Hercules A superhero of highest order He's what's known as a super porker Hercules the super-pig Rights wrongs, conquers evil Hercules the super-pig A hero for the people in pink Porky the pig saves fluffy kittens He fights the monsters from under your bed (Pork) Chops dogs with his wee pinky porky snout Fills the bad guys with his Hercules dread A good pig through and through Hercules the super-pig His city's proud 'cause he brings home the bacon Hercules the super-pig A hero for the people in pink Hercules the super-pig Fluent in both English and Latin (Pig Latin) Hercules the super-pig A hero for the people in pink Villains run when they see him coming He's a workaholic super-dancing super-duper pig With his super-swine powers turned up to super-high But if he thinks someone is watching, then he's gone on all four trotters So don't you call out his name Pork Hercules, Porky leaves
