Track Name: Greetings From Bikini Atoll
(This song has no words)
Track Name: Riptide
The little boy was surfing right by down the pier
When he came back out his legs disappeared
Stud Lou went surfing to the tidal wave
When he came back out it looked like he hugged razor blades

The model, posed nude for the magazine,
She got torn into chum by an aquatic fiend
Maybe it's morays causing the fear
Or maybe Jack the Ripper in scuba gear

The Riptide the riptide the riptide

The great white sharks, they think you're a seal lion
And if you touch the blue rings, you'll be dying
Sea monsters on the map don't seem to spook
Well you won't be laughing when you're stuck in their tooth

Everyone loves riding on their surf boards
Oh baby, splish splash splish splash you're swimming in gore
Not only monster under where you sleep
But they are also underneath the aquatic deep

The riptide the riptide the riptide
Track Name: Nocturnal Emotions
The pains of everyday life
Living without control
You try to save yourself but
You sacrifice your soul

The blow that stings the hardest
Feels like the sweetest touch
You learn to live it, breathe it
And miss it oh so much
Those

Nocturnal emotions, notions
Emissions through submission
Unwavering devotion
And welcoming perdition
Nocturnal emotions, quotients
Subtraction and addiction
Try your best to hide behind
Behind bedroom doors you'll find
The truth

The world, it burns you down and
You're smoldering to ash
Some momentary solace
Surrender to the flash

Your skin is bruised and beaten
It's bleeding crimson red
To live without that feeling
You would be better dead

Nocturnal emotions, notions
Emissions through submission
Unwavering devotion
And welcoming perdition
Nocturnal emotions, quotients
Subtraction and addiction
Try your best to hide behind
Behind office doors you'll find
The truth

Nocturnal emotions, notions
Emissions through submission
Unwavering devotion
And welcoming perdition
Nocturnal emotions, quotients
Subtraction and addiction
Try your best to hide behind
Behind classroom doors you'll find
The truth
Track Name: The Mermaid Hop
Gather round people
Won't you give us a chance?
Cuz we're gonna show you
A real cool dance

Well, it's a really simple dance, there's nothing to it
Doesn't matter who you are, anyone can do it
Banned in all 50 states and I guess I should mention
That it even violates the Geneva Convention

The Mermaid Hop
You'll dance til you drop
You'll flip and you'll flop
To The Mermaid Hop

You may know The Monkey
Or The Mashed Potato
But if you don't know The Hop
Then we'll see you later

You put your hands at your sides with your fingertips out
And you shimmy and you shake and you wiggle about
You do a little twist in your knees and your shins
And you'll be feeling it baby from your head to your fins

The Mermaid Hop
You'll dance til you drop
You'll flip and you'll flop
To The Mermaid Hop
Track Name: My Lament
You wanna get to me. You wanna make me scream
I can't let you hurt me, can't let your words inside me,
Cuz one day I'll explode, but when you're not around;
Won't give you that satisfaction.

But still my heart it breaks, no matter what it takes
I have to forget you, pretend I never met you.
But that day hasn't come and maybe never will,
But still I hope for tomorrow.

Woah…

But still I'm fucking here, "borracha y loca".
My foolish fucking heart won't stop loving you.
There will be a day--a day in forever--
That this pain will make me that much stronger
Until I no longer
Wanna lay down and die

Woah…
