Track Name: Sun, Sand and Synth
Chorus 1:
Sunshine,
You make me feel fine.
You know all the time, sunshine,
And I love you.

Verse1:
The green shade ripples as I walk through the trees,
And all the forest sings and springs and round me rings
The sound of nature praising God’s majesty.
I hear the squirrels and ferns with their curls and then I see the,

Chorus 2:
Rainbow,
You make my brain glow.
You make the sky so fancy.
I love you, rainbow.

Chorus 3:
Snowcloud,
You’re lookin’ so proud.
You are a cool shroud for me.
I love you, snowcloud.

Verse 2:
In the sun and rain I walk on the shore.
I see the pearl-pink shells and swells that hide the floor.
The depths ring out with God’s mystery,
I see the seagull talk to the eagle then I see the,

Chorus 4:
Moonbeam,
You make the room gleam.
You make this night seem supreme.
I love you, moonbeam.

Sunshine,
You make me feel fine.
You know all the time, sunshine,
And I love you.
Track Name: Mad Tinker
Verse 1:
My creation is imbued with specialized vibrations.
It exudes an unknown radiation.
But I will activate it without any hesi-hesi-hesitation.
The anti-correlation of subatomic particles,
Charted in my articles,
Brings a revelation of telluric fluctuation,
That is leaking from a hidden dimension,
Which I’ll pump into my lab to power my invention, ‘cause,

Chorus:
I’m the Mad Tinker. I’m the Mad Tinker.
I’ve got a cosmic sublimator and a time blinker.

I’m the great thinker, the idea drinker.
I travel through my parallelic universe linker.

Down in my bunker, I’m a think, thank, thunker.
I’m a comet-crashing cowboy, a black-hole spelunker.

I’m the vacuum-tube clinker, the insulation shrinker.
I’m the Mad Tinker. I’m the Mad Tinker.

Verses 2-3:
My shining wires are designed to transmit my desires,
To my high and lofty techno-spires.
Overlooking weird unstable remains of,
Strange (strange),
Whelms, realms vast and ancient domains.
It overwhelms me as I walk the intertextilline plains,
Bio-stabilizer’s on and me it sustains.
Alien threats it restrains,
As they try to stretch the membrane of my,
Sanity,
Of my Humanity.
But I will not be undone by my own vanity.
Because you know I learned a lesson watching Professor Vine,
When he failed to heed the signs and the subtle designs,
But they made so much sense on Planet Brithunganap,
So I wrote them all down and drew a trans-spatial map.
It led me to a warehouse in a nameless ravine,
Now I’ve brought the tech back home to add it to my machine, ‘cause,

Chorus:
I’m the Mad Tinker. I’m the Mad Tinker.
I’ve got a cosmic sublimator and a time blinker.

I’m the great thinker, the idea drinker.
I travel through my parallelic universe linker.

Down in my bunker, I’m a think, thank, thunker.
I’m a comet-crashing cowboy, a black-hole spelunker.

I’m the vacuum-tube clinker, the insulation shrinker.
I’m the Mad Tinker. I’m the Mad Tinker.

Bridge:
Attention Bunker-robot 1, my P.U.L. is ma(lfunc)tioning.
I’m (coming in) cold. Activate techno-spires 1 and 2.
Boson-point coordinates: 541. Boson-half coordinates: 807.3.
Altward momentum unknown. Prepare for arrival.
Activate the machine.
Track Name: Soul Bath
"Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city.... ...blessed is he who keeps the words of this book of prophecy." (Rev. 22:1-2, 7).

Verse 1:
I wanna bathe my soul in the river's flow.
Wanna wash my pain away.
I wanna take a drink from the river deep, from the river deep.

Chorus A:
Kick the gimmicks, baby, kick the tricks. x4

Verse 2:
I wanna see the sky open when I die,
When I put my new shoes on.
I wanna see the Son shining down the sunshine on everyone.

Chorus B:
Kick the gimmicks, baby, kick the tricks. x3
Kick the tricks.

Verse 3:
I wanna bathe my soul in the river's flow.
Wanna wash my shame away.
I wanna take a drink from the river deep, from the river deep.

I wanna see the sky open when I die,
When I put my new shoes on.
I wanna see the Son shining down the sunshine on everyone.

Chorus C:
Kick the gimmicks, baby, kick the tricks. x2
Kick the gimmicks all you, all you heretics.
I said "a kick the gimmicks, baby, kick tricks." (baby).

Verse 4:
I wanna go bathe my soul,
In the river wide, in the river cold.
Wanna see the sky open when I die, when I die.
Track Name: Hymn of the Immortals
Verse 1:
Food and drink no longer satisfy.
The freshest morning breeze is cold and dry.
To me, to live is Christ to die is gain,
And the lamp that shines its own light shines in vain, so,

Chorus 1:
I won’t shine anything unless it’s the light from the eyes of the King,
And I won’t drink any wine unless it was pressed from the One True Vine,
And I won’t eat any bread unless it’s the Body that’s no longer dead,
And I won’t breathe anymore unless it’s the Wind from the primal shore.

Verse 2:
The spotless never blush or bow with shame.
Immortals never fear sword, beast or flame.
My fingers were trained to fight a war that’s won,
By a Captain who can bloody the moon and blacken the sun.

Chorus 2:
So demons fear my tongue ‘cause it speaks the name of the Man Who Hung.
Yes, I will serve my LORD with the blood and my story and a two-edged sword.
The earth and sky shall fall, but I’ll sing the words that outlast them all.
En arche en ho Logos (In the beginning was the Word)…Kai Theos en ho Logos (And the Word was God).

Verse 3:
It’s Christ in me and I no longer live.
My spirit is alive; my soul’s not mine to give.
My body couldn’t stay in the grave, even if I chose,
‘Cause body, soul and spirit I’m a slave to the One Who Rose,

Chorus 3:
And I’ll join angels in praise and bow at the throne of the Ancient of Days,
And I will bask in the light and know neither sorrow nor darkness nor night,
And I will eat of the tree and drink of the river and finally be free,
And I’ll have plenty of time, for glory is my nature immortality’s mine.

Bridge:
It’s mine.
Immortality’s mine.
It’s mine.

Chorus 4:
And it all ever shall be Christ in me and I in He, LORD,
It all ever shall be Thou in me and I in Thee. (repeat)
