i am the law round here
and you will listen to me now
i haven't got a plan but i will think of one i vow

you went so wrong back when it was the future and i swear
you did us wrong so try and let it go
and share the burden, we're all of
dharma police
dharma police
i read a book each night and think about the day just been
it's done us well so far
we're doing fine stuck in between
the future and the past it cannot last another day with all of you messing about
without considering we made new lives
you went so wrong so try and let it go
and share the burden, we're all of
dharma police
dharma police
Track Name: SUPERVOLCANO!
i'm alive
i am alive
and you had better run for your life
if i go
you better go
maybe to outer space, i don't know
do not run
if you are scared
just be a sacrifice, be fair
i'm a god
i am a god
so you should worship me, like Zod
super volcano
when it blows, uh oh
super volcano
when it blows, you better go
lake taupo
krakatoa

just like baking soda, and vineger

Track Name: 30 Years
if you're gonna laugh it off then make it good
if you're gonna cry it out then wipe those tears and
if you're gonna fight it out then make it count
if you're gonna wait it out then don't just sit there
so if you're gonna laugh
and if you're gonna cry
and if you're gonna fight
what are you waiting for?
30 years i've waited for this chance to come
30 years of biding my time and waiting
for the stars to line up, for the ducks
to be all in a row, lining up, so
if you're gonna laugh
and if you're gonna cry
and if you're gonna fight
what are you waiting for?
so gimmegimmegimmegimme more
so give me some more time
i need more time to spend
what am i waiting for?
Track Name: Temporal Displacement Is Death
this place is death, and you know it
when will it stop?
i have a nosebleed
i don't know what to do, i've not a clue
i'm not the first to be corrupted
what is the time now?
when i was young i met a man
he scared the crap out of me, truly
he said don't ever come back to this place
this place is death for all but hurley
now this is going to sound like i'm from the future
but i'm here
don't ever come back 'cause you know
temporal displacement is death
this place is our death
i grew up here, this is my home
don't want to go
stay here forever
i am a dharma kid, one of the few
i must go back to prove it's real
this place is my life
it's nowhere
i'm from the future
but i'm here
don't ever come back 'cause you know
temporal displacement is death
this place is our death
Track Name: Not Penny's Boat
it was not Penny's boat that was on the radar
so it seems i will never see Claire on the chopper
flying across the sea with her brother and son
how will she remember me?
this is how it has to be
we are never meant to be loved
without a little compromise
we are never gonna make it home
without a little sacrifice
lucky i know my way around harmonies
so just as well i went down, eh
and not desmond, i know
flying across the sea i can hear the birds and
melodies i remember
how will she remember me?
it was not Penny's boat that was on the radar
so it seems i will never see Claire on the chopper
flying across the sea with her brother and son
how will she remember me?
this is how it has to be
we are never meant to be loved
without a little compromise
we are never gonna make it home
without a little sacrifice
Track Name: Don't Waste My Time
with a little word or two
and a nudge along the way
don't wait
i've got nothing left to live for
no, you aren't able to change my mind
if you've got a life to live
or maybe an axe to grind
i don't mind
you've got nothing left to live for
no, I'm not able to change your mind
don't ask me why i really think i am here
don't waste my time here
and if you don't believe a word i say here
don't waste my time here
don't wait to go
laugh a lot or laugh a bit
no one ever laughs at you
or with you
i've got nothing left to live for
no, you aren't able to change my mind
don't ask me why i really think i am here
don't waste my time here
and if you don't believe a word i say here
don't waste my time here
don't wait to go
Track Name: Kamikaze Moon
i don't want a kamikaze
don't crash into me
it's not my fault
i was never malevolent
i'll do anything
just stay away
and the air begins to melt
and the seas begin to burn
it guess it's too late, we're going down
and the birds begin to fly away
and the cats begin to howl
and the dogs begin to bark at the moon
that is bearing down on us
getting larger, messing weather
i don't want to be here when it comes
paparazzi, kamikaze
they don't want to know about this star
and if we die in the end it was your fault
comprehend just what you can do
with just your thoughts
and the birds begin to fly away
and the cats begin to howl
and the dogs begin to bark at the moon
this is the end of life as we know it
Track Name: Charlotte's Message
I guess you did not understand
This place is death was not shorthand
For unstable survivors of
Map math errors and mad montand
I cannot be more clear than this
This place is death without a kiss
A character shield is good
When arrows start falling in woods
You best not ask why there's no fire
Poetic justice, don't ask why
Track Name: Skater
(instrumental)
