Beta Data 02:20
I keep time with a binary clock Behind my firewall my digital lock Insert emoticon here Inert interaction sphere Beta Data, Beta Data Inert interaction sphere I watch time from my cubic air lock Inside my mind in control of the dock Exert ample effort here Consumed by a virtual fear I'm bluetoothed I'm buried in my phone I can't stop - ya know I'm in the zone Internet based tangible dream 802.11g Beta Data, Beta Data Inert interaction sphere Bit crusher is crushing the bits Delete that beta data Loop it, don't gotta move it Radiation echoing in my head If I didn't know better I could be dead But in here I can see so far In here I'm an avatar

The bacon house there is a man of bacon from a frying pan His favorite shirt a tunic plaid passed down to him passed by his Dad He cries to the heavens on the year of the pig Am I a bacon or not a bacon why not a car or a fig? Bacon House, Bacon Man Bacon says "I am what I am" But what's that? He watches birds they're watching him They bacon watch from the pan's rim By the pan's whim Be cooked in scotch Whiskey Slim Jim May slur his words He runs for the office of the president's suite He's popular with scrambled eggs and toast made of wheat Bacon House, Bacon Man Bacon says "Why not eat spam?" But what's that? Into the house a stranger came wearing a mask but not afraid was bacon man for he is crisp and has a plan to blend in this The Bacon House The Bacon House The Bacon House The Bacon House Bacon house bacon man does whatever bacon can Bacon house bacon man Fakin bacon is a sham

Upside down, round brown and big I just keep on searching Inside is out, outside is in It just isn't working for me I need some glasses Glasses that fit me And make me look good I need some glasses Hey! I lost a pair of glasses Can you help me find them? Do you have a lost in found? Yes! Can you describe them? Can you paint a picture in my mind of what they're looking like? Lenses made of glass - frames made of not glass Falling, falling off my face They won't seem to stay in place Pointy frames like wings on my head I went to the high school to see my friend Ben Someone put some glasses in his garbage can Would this be the pair? The pair that I wear? No it won't! Upside down, round brown and big I just keep on searching Inside is out, outside is in It just isn't working for me I need some glasses Glasses that fit me And make me look good I need some glasses Glasses round on the ground Pick them up put them down Glasses found safe and sound Need them not but I like the look! I need some glasses Glasses that fit me And make me feel good I need some glasses I need some glasses I need some glasses

Jim 03:10
How many Jims can you fit in a basket Why would I put all my Jims in a basket How many Jims can you fit in a basket Hot air balloon floating up you can ask it I want to borrow a Jim you put them where? Sorry I don't have any Jims to spare What do you want with my last Jim? Shove 'em in my basket and you can ask him Which word? J-I-M Not found Get your own Jims you can't have mine I need to save them for a later time What do you need with all these Jims? I just need them all whether they're fat or slim B-A-S-K-E-T Not found How many Jims can you put in a basket Why would I put all my Jims in a basket How many Jims can you put in a basket Hot air balloon floating up you can ask it I want to borrow a Jim you put them where? Sorry I don't have any Jims to spare What do you want with my last Jim? Shove 'em in my basket and you can ask him Which Word? G-Y-M Not found 49 Wrong, try again 49 That's incorrect. The correct answer is 49. My name is Jim and I want to be Far away from where anyone could put me With a Jim and Jim in a basket makes three Just shut up and get in the basket Jim is getting drunk when he drinks from a flasket Celebrate with Jim when he's up in the basket The world is spinning fast on the edge of the basket Pay respects to Jim when he lays in a casket

Co-Shaper 03:14
Welcome to Fantasy Land Run your fingers through the purple sand Take my hand it's fantastic How did we ever get here? Am I sure that I want to be here? Can Yu hear the sound that I hear? I do not hear the sound you hear What is the sound that you hear? Resonating in the wire Burn in the fire that's taking you higher The winter chill is outside But you watch the fight from ringside The winter melon seems to tell me Though it seems in the summer heat Everything is not as it seems Hanging by the thread of a disingenuous surreality Behind a misty veil crystal eyes see through the stale smoke of this duplicity Be the co-shaper of this world with me Anything you want your eyes to see Render every surface into me Running at the mind I'm happy Bring your thoughts closer to the sound I hear The rushing blood pounding drums inside my ear The ringing burns what can get my mind to clear Can you help me control what I fear? I do not hear the sound you hear What is the sound that you hear? We come from Fantasy Land No one knows what we had planned If I'm mad it's fantastic Why don't they ever think so? Is this all a dream? I don't know I'm drowning in this world below

Look at the balloons, now what? Look at the balloons, what now? Look at the balloons, now what? Now what? Now what? Red, purple, yellow, green Translucent memories Taking me back to the day The day that I lost everything Purple, green, yellow, red What have I got in my head? Now what? Now what? Look all around, what do you see? Hear what I say, are you listening? House with a tire swing Car for driving to the thing I have no accent Hey do you remember me? I sat by Yu in history Are you from German? The thing I cannot get into is locked The locked thing I can't get into is cold and dreary I guess it's just as well it's all the same The change will do me good The change will do him better Look all around, what do you see? Hear what I say, are you listening? Small apartment busy street Walk to places with my feet Talk like New Yorkers Doing business from my pad Nothing like I ever had Science fiction novelist (Jim's Tibetan singing bowl) Da da da da da da writer's block! I wish that I could figure out what I was thinking Pizza, Chinese or Italian? I wish that I could figure out what I was eating Look at the balloons, now what? Look at the balloons, what now? Look at the balloons, now what? Now what? Now what? Book on Scientology, found it at a library (Scientology) Covered up by dust bunnies, is it fate or destiny? (Is it right for me?) KFC or Mickey D's? Taco Bell or Burger King? (Where did I put my keys?) Pizza Hut or Chipotleee? White Castle is now Walgreen's (What has become of me?) Found out all about Thetans Does it happen now? Does it happen when? Yu can call me Sven, I'm not from Japan Clearly I'm from Svedish! Scientology is fine I think I'd rather write about a science fiction Character who lost and found his keys Went back in time to outer space reincarnated Look at the balloons, now what? Look at the balloons, what now? Look at the balloons, now what? Now what? Now what? Now what? Now what?

Take the number 4 to the moon at 11:01 If you listen to your dog, you're not the only one If we left it at just this, this would be a dumb song Yu should bring your dog along, don't take the bus alone Me and my dog cruisin' to the moon at 11:02 Keep the sun at my back and the gum off my shoe We're on schedule - we're right on track Space station getaway, one way ticket ain't coming back Stepping out to walk on the moon at 11:03 Take my Loopee out to poop and what do I see? There is no moon suit for him, there's just one for me In the vacuum of space he is so hungry 41 101 41 101 41 101 41 101 He ate a whole cantaloupe on earth but now on the moon He's eating all the cheese, it'll all be gone soon It's a satellite gone wrong and he planned all along The end of human travels to the moon and beyond Dog barks, more dog barks

Bullfighting in the dark Francesca watches anxiously This matador who's tangoing With a bull he cannot see Bullfighting in the dark It's a special game at night they say What does it matter? I win either way I beat the bull I get the girl Then reality sets in I bet the Yankees wouldn't win Though I don't understand the rules The bet will make it interesting The game is interesting But either way I'll go to brunch with Francesca Joe DiMaggio's at bat Look! The pitcher threw a fast one DiMaggio shuts his eyes He's bullfighting in the dark Francesca watches anxiously DiMaggio the mambo king He saunters to her silently It's time to place your bets! This you must accept Heads I win the bet, tails you lose the bet Which one will you get? Don't be so upset Brunch you still will get (Pancho Sanchez speaks) Bull fighting in the dark It's a special game at night they say What does it matter? I win either way I beat the bull I get the girl I beat the bull I get the girl!

Zap 04:31
Video games I'm digitizing Never the same I'm realizing Video games they get the best of me What can I say? This is my destiny Hiding deep underground Where do we go from here? A score that'll get me crowned I'll need a lot of beer - plug me in! Colors around me it's so astounding Stuck in a hole where do I go? 1-Up is helping, or am I melting? I do not know Worlds colliding, the joystick is sliding Buttons A and buttons B - what do they mean to me? Quarters running outside is sunny side up and down the stairs from people everywhere it's at my score is 400,024 hours with no sleep but I am wide awake Video games I'm digitizing Never the same I'm realizing Video games they get the best of me What can I say? This is my destiny When I was underground I drank a lot of beer I flipped the game around The championship is here if someone cares For my score and nothing more What would you do for the ultimate score? It's not a game it's a lifestyle for sure I'll win the championship on my own Eating and sleeping and living at home Video games I'm digitizing Never the same I'm realizing Video games they get the best of me What can I say? This is my destiny None of the sponsors see The legend that I will be When the world comes around You know where I'll be found - down underground! For my score and nothing more....

Music and fireflies are two things I hold dear But I can't remember what time or what year Shadows so close by my feet Stretch hauntingly into the street Where I go they follow me longingly, longingly Daily engaging the cracks on the wall (I cannot count them all) Feeling confused as I try to recall (Is my name Paul? Is it Paul?) Patterns enhance my dementia (11, 22, 33, 44) Masking a genuine lack of attention (Observing the pretty lights) Open your eyes! Open your eyes! And Look at the balloons Now what? People all around me, the train conductor calling, "27 more stops to go!" Then I thought about my destination And then I though about my destination Where I go they follow me longingly, longingly "Sorry sir, but this is the end of the line" Orange juice with my bacon and eggs would be fine Are you from German? Then from the corner of my eye Are you from German? Horseshoes is a really fun game Now what? Look at the balloons Now what? Hours are passing (Wears it away wears it away wears it away) The sun fades to gray What do I think that I might do today? (But I can't remember what time or what year) Then melodies arise in the distance And fireflies begin to dance with persistence Open your eyes! Open your eyes! And look at the balloons Now what?

about

Ice Cream Vendors Westmont

The Ice Cream Vendors (ICV), made up of longtime pals Jon Kostal and Greg Barnett, is not just a musical duo but a mysterious life force. Those familiar with Jon and Greg know that boy meets girl lyrics and verse/verse/chorus clichés are simply not in their genetic makeup. Defying classification, ICV examines its subjects through a sometimes-surreal lens, but always with fondness and curiosity. ... more
