Squatch thinks out of the box, his head is in the trees. When he's got to rock, he lifts with his knees. And he's got to, yes he's got to rock. Squatch shakes his moneymaker, yeah, he shakes it good. Squatch is a heartbreaker; you better knock, knock on wood. And he wants you where he's got you, And he wants you ... Oooo oooo oooo, etc. Squatch knows a thing or two About a thing or two. Squatch is skeptical, Not sure if he believes in you. And he wants you where he's got you, And he wants you to want some Squatch, too. Yeah, he wants you where he's got you, And he wants you to want some.

Ships are safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for. You won't find your true love, til you walk out that door Set sail for the new world Hoist the jib and weigh anchor Think about sea-going metaphors And leave harbor Lately I've been occupied By some mental octopi Truth be told, I'm at sea Channeling the beast in me Can't be what I need to be Being what I used to be Can't learn secret mysteries Til I learn to set it free Chorus: Waves, crashing down, crashing down over me Taming the Kraken, let the Kraken carry me Will not let it drag me under Know that I will bring the thunder The ocean will not be my death The beast and I will share a breath Chorus twice

We decided to leave the planet It seemed like a good idea at the time We left right after breakfast We wanted to be first in line Away we flew beyond the blue Across the starry sea At full horses, we set our courses For Kepler 22-B

Papa, what you got in that bag? Something bad to make you feel good? Breaking out in a cold sweat Gettin' up like we know you could Malcolm wants you to know it's not a lark In a minute we're gonna go to F-sharp Another thing about this composition Gotta calm down James' disposition Papa, what you got in that bag? Something good to make you feel bad? Breaking out in a cold sweat Wha-hooooow! Anybody know where we can get James some weed? He's flyin' out the window on that PCP! I wouldn't want this to get around We're gonna have to bring James down

Seems to me you've come undone Held together now with Band-aids and bubblegum Thoughts of what's right becomes what's wrong And all the baggage you carry along Tied to the nines, a damsel in distress I hate to say it, but you brought it on yourself, I guess Seems to me, you've come unglued Band-aids ripped off, bubblegum's chewed No thoughts are right, and what can be wrong? The baggage you carry still isn't gone Tied to the nines, a damsel in distress I hate to say it, but you brought it on yourself, I guess

Take a load off Take a load off Take a load off my mind Take a load off my back If I don't get it off soon I'm gonna crack Take a load off Take a load off Take a looooooad off

Up before the sun Full-time all day long Some-something for everyone Maintain, kind & strong Know your rights and check your privilege Know your rights and check your privilege Knowledge and experience Of your mind and history Everybody far and near Got their own sweet mystery Know your rights and check your privilege Know your rights and check your privilege Brothers and sisters, I'm thinking of Across the universe with peace & love Everybody meets that old push & shove We need those things that will lift us up And I love you I love you I love you I love you In this together now Might as well be friends In this together always Kick the bricks and do it again Know your rights and check your privilege Know your rights and check your privilege

Coming fast out of the black All our past is at our back Hope the landing gear is intact Sometimes the science isn't exact On approach to a brand new planet Hope the virgin terra can stand it Ill or well, our past is spent Our path is straight, our minds are bent Chorus: Are we there yet? We are ... Are we there Yet? ... arriving! We are the sasquatch We are the Kraken We are the yeti We are the aliens now We are the hoodoo We are Nessie We are the lights in the sky We are the aliens now We left Earth so long ago Now the future is right below Many light years we have roamed Now we're coming home --Chorus-- We are the Sasquatch We are the Kraken We are the Yeti We are the aliens now We are the hoodoo We are Nessie We are the lights in the sky We are the aliens now (repeat) --Chorus--
