Track Name: Homage to the Squidlord
I met Chuck Berry on the subway. He said "You have to... pay homage to the Squid-Lord".
Track Name: Summer Darkness
Hello Darkness, how are you? I just came to play your fool. Summer came at winters end. Bummer that you’re out of friends. I never thought it any trouble but, now I’m sure.
Track Name: Gin for Fin
You don’t want to be like me. Begging for all you see, living bowl. Gin for Fin what a lovely sound. Your mind is mine tonight. I don’t want to be like you, begging for all my food, living in a cage. Gin for Fin what a lovely sound. Your mind is mine tonight. Gin for Fin.
Track Name: Black Beard; Party Animal
I’ve got Whiskey. And I’ve got Rum. I’ve got medal. And I’ve got fun. And we’ve got booty on the beach. Sail the seven seas. Take a shot for me.
Track Name: Boardwalk Disaster
You don’t want to be like me; surfing away your blues in the deep blue sea. We can walk the boardwalk all our lives; watching the people with empty eyes. She drowned at sea. She talks to me. She drowned at sea. And now I love a ghost here, baby.
Track Name: Reef or Madness?
I've been looking for something new. Never thought that fairy tales come true. I've been looking for something new.

I've got this thing on my arm again. But I still have friends. You're lacking common sense. The hipster girl is dead. Lame references.
Track Name: Surfing the Dead Sea
Picking up the pieces – I’m coming back. Surfing the Dead Sea causes a heart attack. I’m surfing the Dead Sea. Oh baby you and me. Surfing the Dead Sea. Keep an eye on me ‘cause I’m a wildcat. Giving all the babies such a heart attack. Keep an I on me ‘cause I’m a wildcat. I’m a wildcat yeah yeah.
Track Name: Beer for the Basses
Going up-stream, going’ to have myself a real good time, going to party with all aquatic wildlife. Maybe I’ll go home with some cute tuna tonight. Maybe I’ll drink till I’m filet and fried. Beer for the basses. I need it, too. Fill your gills with piss. Have yourself a brew.
Track Name: Hammerhead
Hammerhead – swimming in the deep. Hammerhead – underneath my feet. Hammerhead.
Track Name: Sink or Swim
They say "be the same". Mending and breaking the rules always making you the fool. Sink or swim that's their game.

I cannot use my words. I am never the same, I am breaking and bending and bending and breaking and over again. I can not use my words. I can barely breath.
