Zach Szerlip I love this album so much! The cover of "I Wanna Be Like You" is my absolute favorite. I found out about this band through spotify and have loved them ever since. Favorite track: I Wanna Be Like You.

Ben Mortimer Worth the buy just for the cover of "I Wanna Be Like You" alone, but the rest is fantastic too. Great band, I will definitely follow their eventual (and sure) rise to fame. Favorite track: I Wanna Be Like You.

Oh, my dear
It's been so long since
I've had inspiration
to write again
Oh, I hear
such fancy illustrations
and commotion
upon the wind

Hush, do you hear it?
So sweet and subtle
It teases me
amazes me
It's so divine!
It must be mine!

Dear, oh dear
Why do you look upon me
with such grief and tormented eyes?

I just want to write this song for you
I hope you like it

Rise from bed
I'll get you cleaned and
primmedI've got a new dress
for you to wear
Ooh! And shoes!
I found your favorite necklace too
You have such beautiful hair!

My, oh my
you look as good as the day you died!
Oh, who am I kidding?
You look even more alive!

I can't wait
to see you dance again
it will be splendid
it will be splendid!

I just want to write this song for you
I hope you like it

Whoa, darling look at it this way
it's all for you
and I love the way
that this rhythm pulsates your skin
Why don't we get you up
out of that cursed chair
'cause I gotta feeling
I know just how to make you move

Gee, my dear
I must confess
this mess was not intended
when I began
and I can feel
the pain in your eyes growing
when you realize
where you've been

Haven't felt so refreshed in so long
what's wrong
you cried
oh no please no
Track Name: Dotab
Back off
get your hands off me, baby
don't you try nothin' funny
I don't need nothing from you
No, I don't need the pressure now

I've got
a sweet little somethin' at home
everything about her makes it warm
she may make it easy
but at least she isn't sleepin' around

I can't help but feel I let you down

I tried
but I never really got around
to treating you like the queen
you think you are
'cause I didn't think that you were worth it
Whoa, you're never gonna be the same
and you're never gonna change
I try and try again
but you're too stupid
to see how stupid you are

Goddamn, I don't
want to admit it
but you've got a way with me
and she doesn't get it
I know (I know)
I should probably let it go

So i'll start
trying to start again
and probably never see your face again
I gotta make it easy
so my baby won't be sleepin' around

But I'll probably run it to the ground
Track Name: Bob Loblaw
You never say that I
can't do what I want to
I just got to believe it
and it will be

I think that's crazy
it's gotta take
more to be adored
like you're legitimate

the crude and shallow
act like such royalty
'cause all I hear them say is

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
look at me, I've got self-esteem
I'm sick of all the fakin'
that it takes to make it big
'cause all I hear them say is
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
look at me, I belong on a widescreen
forget the talent
it's so insignificant

What's so wrong with
wantin' to sing a song 'bout my
inner frustrations?
Maybe you could identify...
We're not perfect
so why should we pretend?
I just want to end
your need for me to be ostentatious

You just want somebody with attitude
a strong persona you'd
like to aspire to
and I can understand that
but it's not germane
forget the art
you just want an accessory

I believe ego-trippin' don't flatter you

Every time I see them strut it
something in me's gotta shut it
down, down, down
'cause all I hear them say is

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
look at me, I've got self-esteem
I'm sick of all the fakin'
that it takes to make it big
'cause all I hear them say is
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
look at me, I belong on a widescreen
forget the talent
it's so insignificant

I look around
all I see is unchecked vanity
and a desperate need to believe

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
look at me, I've got self-esteem
I'm sick of all the fakin'
that it takes to make it big
'cause all I hear them say is
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
look at me, I belong on a widescreen
forget the talent
it's so insignificant
Track Name: 12 Years Howled
Last night, I took a hell of a chance. I asked a girl to the dance and she said, "Hell yes!" No Jest! Impressed at my request, I'll have the best dressed guest.
Tonight, I'll take that girl to the dance on a night filled with romance and she'll say, "Love me! Kiss Me!" Gleefully, we'll flee through the moonlight city!

Oh baby, you look so sweet! We gonna dance 'til we got no more feet, yeah!

Let's go! They've provided us punch and various snacks to munch. Let's boogie!
My heart is parched. Let's march far beneath the stars where we'll never have to be apart.

You look so good in the glow of the full moonlight.
Oh baby, you bring out the beast in me.

Oh shit.
I'm a werewolf baby, yeah you best be believin'.
I'll rip your throat out while everybody's screamin'.
Clawin' and maulin' 'til the color of rose flows,
I won't remember nothin' once this gory story comes to a close.

Last night must have been real intense; I can't recall it's events. Darn, I say.
Well, that sucks. I must rush to find the one I lust. I trust I didn't cause a fuss. And then I can't believe what I read. It said ALL OF MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD! Including her. I stall. I bawl. Although I am appalled, I gotta haul it to the funeral.

Why, baby!? You were so sweet! Now all that's left of you is your dancin' feet, yeah!

And as I arrive, since I'm the only survivor, "Mind if I say a few words?"

You looked so good in the glow of the full moonlight.
Oh girl, you still bring out the beast in me.

OH SHIT!
I'm a werewolf baby, yeah you best be believin'.
I'll rip your throat out while everybody's screamin'.
Clawin' and maulin' 'til the color of rose flows,
I won't remember nothin' once you're dead.

How can this be happenin'?
Tearin' everybody dearest to me limb from limb.
Want to stop and grieve them, but I just stop to eat them.
Please. Someone please kill me.

Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!? WAHHHH!
