Feeling lost in an elephant’s dream Caught up in the digital stream Cave of shadows, can’t say what I mean A million miles far from home Best foot forward, take a step back Play defense while on the attack Sowing discord, can’t cut them no slack Everybody so alone If everyone could see Themselves through some other eyes Innocent, caught up in the machinery An algorithmic disguise Making everything great again Forget about your family and friends Looking for a means to an end Just don’t want to be alone Fragile gem, split in two Internal dialogue of them vs. you Find acceptance with nothing to do The voices there are all your own If everyone could see Themselves through some other eyes Innocent, caught up in the machinery An algorithmic disguise A deeper body ache, and make a bad mistake A million jumping on Sharing a bad take, Nobody can quite shake The feeling that you’re gone Feeling lost in an elephant’s dream Getting washed away by the digital stream If it feels better to share another meme Doesn’t make you less alone If everyone could see Themselves through some other eyes Innocent, caught up in the machinery An algorithmic disguise If everyone could see Themselves through some other eyes Innocent, caught up in the machinery An algorithmic disguise

Meat Grinder 02:18
Hippy likes Hippy snacks. Hippy thinks they taste so good. Hippy likes the Hippy snacks. They're made of whole grain wholesome wood. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better. Yuppie likes Yuppie snacks. Yuppie likes them made of meat. Yuppie likes the Yuppie snacks. Suck them from the Yuppie teat. Yuppie snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Yuppie snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Yuppie snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Yuppie snacks make them better than me, make them better, better, better, better. Hippy don't like Yuppie snacks. They prefer things made of soy. Yuppie don't like hippy snacks. Would rather play with shiny toy. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them better than you. Hippy snacks make them better than me, make them bitter.

Freak Flag 02:10
Everything you like, anything that gets you high Something there for everyone, something you can try Getting murry with a furry in the simulated leather Bondage in a dungeon where you can do it one better Get your freak flag on Get your freak flag on Everything is good in our carved out sexy spaces From the horniest of normies to the kinkiest of aces Post it on social if you’re into humiliation But remember to use content warnings. It’s just polite. Get your freak flag on Get your freak flag on Everything is good as long as everyone’s consenting Couple with some trans girls who are really into fencing Peg a strapping young lad with your strapping strap-on cock But only if he’s legal though, I’ve been around the block Get your freak flag on Get your freak flag on You can be a top or bottom or an indecisive switch Take them out for breakfast afterwards, if you feel the itch Safety first, remember to wear rubber, use protection And get it nice and shiny so you can see your own reflection mmm, yeah... Get your freak flag on Get your freak flag on Get it on and on Get your freak flag on Safeword to your mother But... not your actual mother 'Cuz that'd be gross I mean, yuck

Fibromyalgia 01:31
Every day I’m just a little older I feel a little twinge up in my shoulder Icing up my limbs until they’re colder Reduce the burning pain into a smolder I’ve got fibromyalgia I’ve got fibromyalgia I feel a lot of pain but it’s Mostly in my brain I have Fibromyalgia I’ve got Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia There’s something in my brain that makes me Sensitive to pain I’ve got Fibromyalgia Well I think it’s pretty nice To eat turmeric and rice With a spicy Indian curry And I get so much advice And I’ve heard it once or twice About swimming and Pilates and so much yoga (You should swim do Pilates and so much yoga!) Fibromyalgia, I’ve got Fibromyalgia It’s excruciating pain That comes from my defective brain I’ve got fibromyalgia

You can hide yourself down a deep, dark hole Or hoist yourself on a really tall pole Anything that’ll help you get away You can do heavy drugs to numb the pain, or Ask a surgeon to remove your brain So you can fit right in and start to play Change your face and change your name Hide everything that brings you shame Or go on a preemptive sneak attack Dig deep into the viper’s pit Embroil yourself in petty shit Just commit ‘coz there’s no turning back Oh, I wish I didn’t worry oh so much Oh, I wish I could feel fine Oh, if only all my hopes weren’t out of touch I wish my safety wasn’t on the line If you’re accused of doing a bad crime Want to hide for a very very very long time Consider all the possibilities Make a run for President Convince the people you are heaven sent You might just win and then you are home free Even if you’re caught lying Everyone gives you points for trying It’s not that the bear stakes well, it skates at all Even if you destroy the world It doesn’t matter, you can fuck every girl And then you can go home and take your ball Oh, I wish I didn’t worry oh so much Oh, I wish I could feel fine Oh, if only all my hopes weren’t out of touch I wish my safety wasn’t on the line In the long run everything will be fine It will just be a matter of time, in Twelve billion years this will all be gone In the meantime just try to survive The world is better with you alive Outliving him is a reason to go on

about

Most of these songs are things done for Song Fight! or Song Fight!-adjacent contests, and represent a real turning point in Sockpuppet's composition and production without forgetting the roots of where this music came from.
