about

This album is a collection of songs conceived and written between 2002 and 2005 for Bullet Lodge a charter of the Immersion Composition Society, a group of speed songwriters who share their monthly albums with each other.

Most of these songs were created and recorded as part of a challenge to write and record at least 6 songs in a 24-hour period (called a "day album"). These are the better tracks from those hastily recorded sessions.

Track Name: Falling Off a Cliff
Ahhhhh...

Here I am, my friend
Just pushed me off this cliff
Now I fall, It's a long way down
I'll probably die.

I'm falling off a cliff
And this is my last bit of life
What haven't I done
That wasn't quite right?

I remember that I was mean to my sister
I think I never told my wife enough how much I love her.

I'm falling off a cliff
And this is my last bit of life
What haven't I done
That wasn't quite right?
Track Name: My Computer, the Planet Finder
Hey, Mr. Computer
Can you find a new planet for me?
I need one where there is oxygen in the atmosphere
And where gravity
Is approximately 9.8 meters per second (per second).

I need a new place to live
My computer will take me there
I need a new place to live
My computer will take me there.
Track Name: Brooke's Birthday Song
Every channel and every station
All across the world in every nation,
Has got one thing going on.
It's a happy happy birthday song.

Today is January second
So bring Brooke a birthday present
All the people across the world
Are saying Happy Birthday to this girl.
Track Name: Shopping Planet
The planet I live on has almost every
Product you would ever need
In this universe of ours.
From snacks to clothes and tapes and CDs.

Car parts, cleaners, pet food, human food, Diapers, sweaters, toys, games, everything!
Shopping on our planet is really fun
Come on and follow us,
We're the Wal-Martians.
Track Name: Stonehenge
50,000 years ago, or maybe more
The dawn people came to salisbury plain
But no one knows for sure
Was it the Partholonians, Formorians, or Nemedians
Or the Fir Bolg that built the monument?

Why did they build an array of stones?
How did they lift them up to put them where they go?

Was it for religious rituals late at night
Where people sacrificed animals
Or was it merely a giant astronomical calendar
Made by a people interested in the sky?

Sunset, moonrise, a perfect machine
Sarsen circle, bluestone horseshoe,
And the five trilithons
Bluestone Circle,
Predict eclipses with the Aubrey holes,
Moonset, sunrise.

Why did they build an array of stones?
How did they lift them up to put them where they go?
Track Name: Hospital Rides
Once I fell down the stairs
And I had to go the hospital

And while I was there
I met a nurse named Cindy

She gave me lots of meals
And told me lots of stories

I had a bed that was on wheels
And she'd give me rides around the hospital.
Track Name: Pyramid and Sphinx
Ask a toddler what he thinks
About the pyramid or the sphinx
And he will tell you, "I don't know."

Ask a grown-up what he thinks
About the pyramid or the sphinx
And he will tell you, "The aliens built them."
Track Name: Tree Bugs
What is a tree?
A tree is big and green
And the trunk is brown.
Inside the bark there is something unseen.

There are little bugs
That crawl around under the bark
There are probably 50 million bugs for every tree in the park.
Track Name: Express Yourself
One person when talking to
Another uses certain words
That is how the process of
Communication works.
And when one perceives the
Other different from the first
The thought and meaning intended
By the speaker will probably burst.
Or at least it will be deranged
The intended communication has changed.

So when you're speaking, be aware
Of blank looks and evil stares
Make sure you express yourself clearly
Avoid miscommunication early.
Track Name: The Winkle Monkeys Know
Sometimes I feel like I'm a star,
I see bright lights and an audience before me.
But the trouble is, we don't know who we are,
And this is a problem I could not forsee.

The crowd goes wild and then they shout
My worst nightmare: then they figure it out.

Nobody likes my show, because the Winkle Monkeys know.
The Winkle Monkeys know I am a fraud.
Track Name: Never Give Up
Out in the desert or on the plain
Nothing nowhere, feel the pain
Pains of hunger, pains of thirst
Walking forever, I must be cursed

But I know I've a destination.
I don't work this hard for recreation.

Twenty-four hours and for six tunes
Watch me stumble in the sand dunes.
But I am running a marathon
I will keep running all night long.

But I know I've a destination.
I don't work this hard for recreation.
Track Name: Isa 29
And the multitude of all the nations
That fight against Ariel
Shall be as a dream of a night vision.

It shall be as when a hungry man dreameth
And he eateth,
But he awaketh and his soul is empty.

Stay yourselves and wonder
Cry ye out and cry.
They are drunken, but not with wine.
They stagger, but not with strong drink.

Forasmuch as this people draw near me
With their mouth,
And with their lips do honor me,
But have removed their heart from me.
And their fear toward me
Is taught by the precepts of men

Therefore, behold, I will proceed
To do a marvelous work among this people.
Even a marvelous work and a wonder
For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Track Name: One Dimensional Man
I'm a one-dimensional man
I don't say 'hi' and I don't shake hands
I don't have ideas and I don't make plans
No one thinks exactly like I can.

If you were an onion, I'd be just a core
If you were a disease, I'd only be one sore
If you were a tree, merely a leaf would I be
I'm a one-dimensional man.

It's not my choice, it's just how I was formed
I only notice water when I'm in a storm
Try me in a conversation, though, you must be forewarned:
You'd rather be talking to an acorn.

I'm a one-dimensional man.
Track Name: Spring Love
When spring is here
I shall tell you, dear,
How deep my love is for you.

When flowers grow
They'll long to show
Their bright and lovely colors.

When cometh rain
It shall be plain
That live beginneth anew.

When spring is here
I shall tell you, dear,
How deep my love is for you.
Track Name: The Concert Song
We've tamed the unknown mind,
We control our feelings too
To ensure positive growth
In society for me and you.

We've abolished love
And the problems it can cause
There is no war, no hate and envy
Because of these laws.

We... are the Society United!
We... have eliminated pain.

Everyone's needs are taken care of
All have a place to live.
We all have food on our plates
And jobs so we can give.

We've conquered earth's disease
We live life as it was meant
to live, with all our talents,
artistic, scientific developments.

We... are the Society United!
We... have eliminated pain.

(spoken)
Let me take you back to the time before the great last wars,
when our ancestors lived in a world they could not control!
They had no way to grow!
They were constantly fighting against the elements, and sickness, and their own hatred towards each other. It was chaos!
Do you want to go back to that? No!
Thanks to our Determiner and the new Society United we are free!

The Society United!
We... have eliminated pain.
And the old ways won't ever come back again.
Track Name: Chasin' The Sun
I'm back at the beginning,
But I thought I was at the end
I was searching for something
But all I found was another bend.

Another bend in the road
But the search is not done
Made it to the next milestone
But I'm still chasing the sun.

Put your head on my shoulder
And don't you cry
I'll be with always
Even when there's clouds in the sky.

Another bend in the road
But the search is not done
Made it to the next milestone
But I'm still chasing the sun.
