about

"elephant seal" is a concept album about a hybrid, elephant seal man who comes to america in order to find solace (from the previous album, it is him). he ends up getting throne out of the city like nothin but trash, and then he gets mad wants to kill. he even tries to kill by detonating the whole world.

this album is are second album. we have all been sober for a whole year, so we wanted to see what our minds could power up. it was recorded, mixed, and produced by our good friend lars. i guess we just wanted to do something different than all the mainstream bullshit out their and we wanted to make a difference in the world with our music and just make music with my friends because i have the best friends in the whole world!! thanks for all you're support!!

huh you wanna' say something to me?
or should I say it for you??
go!!!
2 3 4 go!!!

out on the corner where everything looks black & white
i'm here to tell you it's not
no friend sometimes you gotta' put up a fight
when a homeless man comes to you with a gun in his hand
you gotta say hey man this ain't no time for me to defend!!!

i got my new, white shirt and i'm looking great
raking leaves with a party rake
i got a whole bowl full of hoodsie cups and christmas cookies
-try the christmas cookies because their great
i made them last night at my grandma's house
-my grandma's house
but we tired to get a different formula
because the other one was just a little too expensive for us

Down at the mart looking for a new fan
because the one i had doesn't rotate effectively anymore
i have it in my window..
but its blowing hot air in my general direction
i don't remember who got it for me,
but they obviously don't have very good taste in medium-sized electronic appliances........
so don't expect me to get one for you

i got my new, white shirt and i'm looking great
raking leaves with a party rake
i got a whole bowl full of hoodsie cups and christmas cookies
-try the christmas cookies because their great
i made them last night at my grandma's house
-my grandma's house
but we tired to get a different formula
because the other one was just a little too expensive for us

i'm at the driving range with my elderly grandfather
i'm about to t-off so you better get out of my way!!!!!!!

i got my new, white shirt and i'm looking great

but we tired to get a different formula
because the other one was just a little too expensive for us

2.99 for a box of cookie mix?
what do you think i'm stupid??
that's borderline highway robbery man
Track Name: Trash Sack
forgive me father
theres no time for you to be peddling your merch around here
i'm not interested in what you're selling

i met a guy his name was donatello
he tried to sell me a brand new cello
but i wouldn't have it no the thing was cracked......
and i don't know how to play as a matter of a fact
i try to keep it simple
but every time you come around you got me jumping out the window
cuz i'm running from the cops
running from the pope
running from the people trying to slit my throat

and you kno this ain't no time for a charity case..
this ain't the time for you to be here
so gather your things and put them in this trash bag
go out on the curb where the trash goes
you kno you shouldn't be here......
you better get gone

two days ago i was sitting in my room
listening to music with my headphones on
when my dad he yelled for me upstairs
he said your gonna be late for class
and i made you waffles...

this ain't the time for a charity case.......
this ain't the time for you to be here....
so gather your things and put them in this trash bag
go out on the curb where the trash goes
you know you shouldn't be here....
you better get gone
you better get gone

do you knowthe truth?
this ain't no time for no charity case
this ain't no time for you're trash sack
this ain't no time for no charity case
this ain't no time for you're trash sack!!

i'll clean my room after i'm finished with you
get all your things and get out the door
it's trash time and the recycling-man is on his way
and if you're not careful......
you'll find yourself in a body bag!!!!!!!
in a body bag!!!!

all of them are trying to tell me what to do
you don't like me and i don't like you
so put our heads together
and go for drive in my dad's vehicle
Track Name: Road Soda
go!!!!
gotta go fast
any officer of the law who thinks he can stop me when i'm driving my dad's car has got another thing coming!!!!

i'm driving on my way to the university
all i got in the back is a 6pack and I am feeling really thirsty
so I grab myself one
pop the cap drinking it quick
making sure no officers are on my tale
because i'm driving ten miles over the speed limit

and just when i though i was in the clear?
i've got one of the pigs riding on my exhaust pipe.....
gotta'go fast if you wanna catch me

i pull over and he asks for my licence
so I give it to him as well as my registration
he says what do you have in the back??
none of your business i put my coat over it
and then he tells me to get out of the car
so i floor it and I get myself another road soda

swag
i swerve into the other lane
all the coppers better get out of my way

i'm driving in my dad's suv
red & blue lights are looking for me but they can't catch me
cuz my road sodas are like jetfuel for my stomach
i'm driving in my dad's suv
red & blue lights are looking for me but they're never gonna' catch me
because i know what i'm doing
its not the first time and it's the not the last!!

with a beer in each hand i am kicking up sand
i am driving through puddles ruining my dad's suv
i need another road soda
i need another road soda
Track Name: My Dark Side
yea you know what the say everybody has a dark side
well ima show you mine
-my dark side

do you ever feel like a moray eel?
like eyeballs are looking for you
and you don't have any roller-skates
so you just keep on walking talking
stalking hawking locking doors

torgive me father....
my dark side and I'm not afraid of who i am inside
not afraid to show my dark side

it just so happens when I'm all alone
i think about the people who left me
i think about the reasons i'm alone
i say whose gonna stab me?
whose gonna shoot me?
whose gonna hit me in the face with a rock?
whose gonna take a marble and sling-shot me?
whose gonna slit my throat??
whose gonna light me on fire??
whose gonna push me off the dock???
whose gonna lock me in a car with the windows rolled up
In a confined space with the engine on????
who........
Track Name: Blood Red Red & Red
2 3 4!!!
a thousand reasons to fail 1 reason to survive
do you want success or do you wanna sink into the quicksand?

looking down at my brand-new pants
i see theres blood on them and its not my blood...
it must be my enemies blood.....
i went down to the hardware store
and i know i've seen this hammer before
but its not my hammer.....
it must be enemies hammer

another time another place
you and i we will enter a race
i know i'm faster than you especially on my skateboard
and you will go and get your blood on me
but i will say i have had a scraped knee before and it really stings
especially when you put peroxide on it

through the field i see you coming towards me
and we can't be friends anymore
your my enemy
you're blood is on me but mine is not on you....
through the trees across the lake
were looking for a place where all kids can skate
up in the heaven or down in the earth
get out of your wheelchair and skate skate skate!!

go!!!
this song goes out to any laundromat out there that has ever cleaned the blood off my pants
i kno sometimes it can seem a little nerve racking when you see that rusty,brown stain all over somebody's scraped knees
but just kno you've got a special place in my heart

in a land so far away a place like america,
where you can pay someone to clean the blood off of you're pants
just understand......
that other countries aren't that fortunate.......
sometimes when you fall down you gotta pick yourself up
you gotta clean the blood off yourself!!!

through the field i see you coming towards me
and we can't be friends anymore
your my enemy
you're blood is on me but mine is not on you....
through the trees across the lake
were looking for a place where all kids can skate
up in the heaven or down in the earth
get out of your wheelchair and skate skate skate!!
