I'm looking down on the grids Looking down on the game How the building walls hide All the zombies inside with their eyes glazed I arise eyes ablaze Others said they thought it best Best if I work on my own So yes, I spend a lot of time alone In a blue Nomex jumpsuit White noise of the engine drone This design is my own Built to carry two souls Rise in the night You can see by my flashlight beam Can't deny it's my flying machine So put that in the hat that you wore when you called it a loser's pipe dream Cause I'm taking you down the pipe with me I'm taking you down the pipe with me Arms reaching in every side Everyone wants to take your seat Beat them back, throw the latch Sorry there's just no spare air Hold on as I turn the key As I'm taking you down the pipe with me I'm taking you down the pipe with me I'm looking down on the flames from suborbital space As I try not to think of what's gone Just the future And I see the future in your face As I'm taking you down the pipe with me Though we may not be alive to see I'm taking you down the pipe with me

These songs were written during a dark period of desolation and isolation. They are bitter, gleaming fortresses jutting spitefully into the world. Plus, they're fun for the whole family.
