Zach Szerlip I love this album so much! "Starkiller" is my absolute favorite; the song has a super peppy feel to it, like a theme song. I found out about this band through spotify and have loved them ever since. Favorite track: Starkiller.

Ben Mortimer Way to go guys. This is the kind of record I will gladly buy simply to make sure the artist has the ability to make more. Great, catchy instrumentation with just the right amount of prog thrown in there to really make it interesting. All killer, no filler; every song is fantastic from start to finish. Favorite track: Funkle Phil.

Vordorn I'm particular to Bear Ghost's almost theatrical style. The songs where they are almost a Disney-esque musical are their best work, and they involve the listener in their dark yet energetic melodies. Favorite track: Introduction To Blasterpiece.

James Avery Fuchs Take "Panic at the Disco". Double the high-octane energy and verve. Add the best parts of "Nightmare Before Christmas". Toss in a dash of 8-bit and a whole lot of joy. Congratulations! You have created Bear Ghost's Blasterpiece and one of my current favorite albums.

Track Name: Introduction To Blasterpiece
Welcome! You are here to witness our demise
But we won't go without a show
So don't yet say goodbye
Join us in our boisterousness
As we enjoy the ride
Along the way we'll share with you
Everything that we've devised

Will we suck? Will we delight?
Let's have a Bear Ghost Time
Track Name: Necromancin' Dancin'
This is it!
Now we've found it. I'm astounded.
Every town will be surrounded
By a throng of marching death.
Delicious the riches, they glisten ahead.

It's a craze!
They'll devour every hour
Of these endless, non-progressive inundations of their kind.
And lucky for you, you're the next one in line.

When I'm necromancin', everyone's dancin',
No one can stop me. I dare you to try.
The dead are infused with sensational groove
And they're coming for you now
There's nowhere to hide.

Yeah! (Waltzing forth! Here they come!)
I'm raisin' the dead! (Everyone turn and run!)
I'm lovin' the dread! (Killer moves that will stun!)
Let's make some evil!

I'm in bliss!
My cadavers drive a gathering
Of streets of gleeful people
Seeing the deceased's advance.
The risen are ridden with rhythm and dance.

Dig up some flesh with plenty of mold.
Disease is appeasin' for rickety bones.
And make it saucy, with a hot incantation.
Dominion is served with a bubbling, spirited, vibrant
Subjugation.

Yeah! (Waltzing forth! Here they come!)
I'm raisin' the dead! (Everyone turn and run!)
I'm lovin' the dread! (Killer moves that will stun!)
Let's make some evil!

Yeah! (Bust a move or you'll lose!)
The dance of the dead! (They'll swarm all over you!)
Get out there and shred! (It's a zombie footloose!)
And make some evil!

Cities laid waste, and they celebrate.
Freed now from their graves.
We love it so.
More, more, more, more.
So mince and prowl
It's over now, the necromance ballet.
You're all the same.

Yeah! (Waltzing forth! Here they come!)
I'm raisin' the dead! (Everyone turn and run!)
I'm lovin' the dread! (Killer moves that will stun!)
Let's make some evil!


Yeah! (Bust a move or you'll lose!)
The dance of the dead! (They'll swarm all over you!)
Get out there and shred! (It's a zombie footloose!)
And make some evil!
Track Name: Funkle Phil
Zoned out, I can't keep it movin'
I don't want your problems
Freaked out, but not ever losin'
Gonna crush rock bottom.
Get down with what gets ya boogie
I hope that you caught 'em
Knocked out but fate's good lookin'
Gonna fool you rotten

Gonna blast off with a loud boom
And rocket ‘til the day we die.
Yeah, when you bet your life you learn to keep your eyes on the prize

I just wanna get one thing straight
The young and the restless just copulate
I'm talkin' turkey
Courtin' disaster, punchin' masters
I'm livin' it all for nothin'
All guts, no glory
Homeboy, sweet homeboy
Not with my pig, you don't
You think you're a smooth clubba hubba
Home is where the heart attack is
Several opportunities missed for your biz
So kiss my butler

Round up, move out, get ready
For a truly rockin' good show
Promenade with the flock and forget about the clock
‘cause in-a 1, 2, a-1, 2, 3
Everybody lose it with me!

Gonna blast off with a loud boom
And rocket ‘til the day we die.
Yeah, when you bet your life you learn to keep your eyes on the prize

Bellows of titans in history
Weighing down on me
I know how it goes
It's a sweet fabrication
Blocked out, the dream is a fever
And death can wait for me

Gonna blast off with a loud boom
And rocket ‘til the day we die.
Yeah, when you bet your life you learn to keep your eyes on the prize
Track Name: Gypsy
I live a life of colored melody
Some think it's cool, some think it's strange
A shift of manic hues, a crippling

Beneath all the fuzz is a feeling
And a need to strain what is killing
I need to love, be loved, beloved, love me
say "I do."

She has a siren voice of certainty
A lively prose, a natural gloom
She wields a kiss of incredulity

And I every time feel amazing
In her almond eyes made for gazing
I simply must be loving you.

A femme fatale, a wild slay
I know I will
(Man, just keep your cool)
But, oh my will
(Boy, just keep your cool)
Gives way.

I think I'm caving to delirium,
How did this temptress come my way?
With every step it's getting serious

And I every time feel amazing
In her almond eyes made for gazing
I simply must be loving you
Track Name: Starkiller
I've been watchin' you for quite a while now
It's getting all too hard to bite my tongue
I know you've caught my gaze, and you've tried to look away
But I think it's time we had a little fun

I know you find my aura so seductive
You're running from it each and every day
Your lover's got no clue
What you want, but oh, I do
And I'll show you if you promise that you'll stay

Open Wide
Your dark side


I want it all
Hey Ani, won't you mosie on down from the light?
Tired of waitin', make up your damn mind
It's alright
We both know that you want it
Don't ya be so shy
We will walk the sky (Stop this fight)
Fly (You can't hide)
Don't resist, just give in
Save us some time
Well, I'd ask for your soul
But it's already mine.

Angry with their boring conversations
And sick of doing everything they say
But if you side with me
I'm controlling but you'll see
That you'll get to pick the dirty games we play

Open Wide
Your dark side

I want it all
Hey Ani, won't you mosie on down from the light?
Tired of waitin', make up your damn mind
It's alright
We both know that you want it
Don't ya be so shy
We will walk the sky (Stop this fight)
Fly (You can't hide)
Don't resist, just give in
Save us some time
Well, I'd ask for your soul
But it's already mine.

Decades of unchallenged domination
Never thought you'd have the guts to walk away
Go run to your new boy
You were nothing but a toy
Just another weak mind to manipulate

Open Wide
Your dark side

I want it all
Hey Ani, won't you mosie on down from the liht?
Tired of waitin', make up your damn mind
It's alright
We both know that you want it
Don't ya be so shy
We will walk the sky (Stop this fight)
Fly (You can't hide)
Don't resist, just give in
Save us some time
Well, I'd ask for your soul
But it's already mine.
Track Name: Sickness For Nothing
Slowly anguish settles in
Again, I've made a grave mistake
Sickness for nothing
Sleep through self-loathing

Sometimes this life becomes my hell
And I'm just desperate to escape
Sickness for nothing
Sleep through self-loathing

What remains of my emotion
Only serves to play this game
Maybe one day you will find me
And understand why I'm this way
Track Name: She-Wrecks
I'm not like guys you've chased
I wasn't scared of your mean demeanor
Yeah your skin's a little dry
And you're much bigger than I
But you were mine

My friends said I'm insane
"That girl's a monster, and she'll consume you"
And sure enough, chewed me up and spit me out
Then you chewed me up again.

I still think you're swell.

Do you like what has become of me?
Turns out I'm just another link in your chain
You are still the girl that I used to know

I know you meant no harm
The way I got here could have been better
But now I'm in pieces
And the pain just increases all the time

So small in your tiny, little arms
I was bewitched by your deafening roar
I miss your smile, it's the last thing that I saw before you
Sank your teeth in and you swallowed me whole

I'm not ham (Don't forget to chew)

Do you like what has become of me?
Turns out I'm just another link in your chain
You are still the girl that I used to know
All this time I've been too blind to see
I'm nothin' to you but just savory meat
Led by your instincts, you're a carnivore

That crazy look in your eyes is divine, girl
But ooh, I'm crazy for you
Can we turn back time

You are still the girl that I used to know
All this time I've been too blind to see
I'm nothin' to you but just savory meat
Led by your instincts, you're a carnivore
Track Name: Hola Adriana
I've been riding for days
Picked off a few
To keep them afraid of what lies
Beyond their view
All they could hear
Were boots come in
The sound of death drowned out
The screams of the past

But then you stood
From where they bled
And at that moment I felt so undead

Hola Adriana
Could you take me away?
I need to escape this nefarious trade

She had an elegant connection
Something that enlivens us
Despite the discrepency of our lives
You would pull and I would shove
I just want you to love
Something greater than me

But battered bullets tend to stray
And death's become my only trade

Hola Adriana
Could you take me away?
I need to escape this nefarious trade
Hola Adriana
Could you take me away?
Hold on while I tread on the edge of my grave.
Track Name: Paradise
Nowhere to be found
Silence keeps me down
There's tension in the air
What changed?
You say you're full of doubt

Am I losing control?
Tyant!
Compulsively mulling over the
Greater implications of subtlety
You've gotta keep it together now

I want to believe you

Welcome to paradise
Where life meets purpose
Everything's so nice
Gather and multiply
It's cool
Live here in paradise
We kick back, throw back
It's great to be alive
‘cause girl, you're so fine

I've murdered voices in my head
That say "swallow before you chew"
I've adopted the mantra
I just want to entertain

Swingin' in my sleep
I'm restless in the deep
A demon rises with the truth

What keeps me sane is you understand
Sabotage!
Sheep become people once you father them
Should we bother them?
I don't see it in you

Welcome to paradise
Where life meets purpose
Everything's so nice
Gather and multiply
It's cool
Live here in paradise
We kick back, throw back
It's great to be alive
‘cause girl, you're so fine

All we see is irony

I want everyone to put their hands together and praise this thing we call a life!

Everybody's sayin' "it ain't so bad"
But beneath the static screams the truth
That you're desperate, weak
And compulsively sink
Into anything to rule out delusion

Welcome to paradise
Where life meets purpose
Everything's so nice
Gather and multiply
It's cool
Live here in paradise
We kick back, throw back
It's great to be alive
‘cause girl, you're so fine
Track Name: All At Once
Shadows endlessly deepening
So much for bravery
Fear is overtaking
At the sounds of creeps
And creatures beneath me
Holding your eyes shut wont do a thing

One by one they're advancing
What choice is left but
Standing up against them
With parades of plastic, stuffing and fabric
Sound the alarms
We'll hold them 'til dawn

All At Once
We will run them from our shores
We will rise
No more sleepless nights in horror
We won't see this evil defeat us
March with me we're off to war
We'll stand our ground and we'll fight
We'll take back the night

How can this still be happening?
The things I've seen
No one would believe me
Years of holding back relentless attacking
Have left me on my own
I know I've got to try

I've spent my whole life saying
That it's all in my head
I'm afraid they're very real
The monsters under your bed
And I've tried so hard to stop them
As they come from the depths
I know it sounds completely crazy
But you're all I've got left

All At Once (grab your guns)
We will run them from our shores
We will rise (hear our cries)
No more sleepless nights in horror
We won't see this evil defeat us
March with me we're off to war
We'll stand our ground and we'll fight
We'll take back the night

You laugh but you don't have a clue
You have to believe this is true

All At Once, if you must, cast your stones and write me off
But if you lock me up, it sure wont help at all
They'll come again, it wont end, there’ll be no one to defend you
If I'm stuck inside a cell when darkness falls

Please! Don't leave me here in these chains! Set me free!
You don't understand, they're on their way!
I can't protect you from here
Don't you see? This is the end. (Good god!)
The sounds of their screams as it's all falling down
Their monstrous footsteps quake the ground
I hear humanity fall
And I plead, forgive me I've failed you.
Track Name: Prelude
Well, good morning
How is my dear?
Me? I've been a joy since I brought you here?
I don't think they like me
But I can tell
You think I'm dashing and talented

Oh, please don't start that
We haven't even begun
After all, the struggle is half the fun
You don't know the half of it
We will fly, you and I
Lovers two, soaring through
Everyone will gather to

See her dance
She will be your queen

Let's begin your act
Just practice now
(good)
A little smile will keep it down
They don't know you're faking
So sell it now
Don't let down all your fans
Hold until
The moment when you know you'll kill

Please hold on
I'll make you calm
She will be your queen
