Sharktopus 03:38
Deep under the ocean lives some kind of creature Just under our sailboat, waiting to strike And darling, you said that true love’s on the inside Well, soon you might see those insides outside Run from the ocean to the seashore Run from the seashore to the city Run from the city, but it’s no use Run till the sharktopus makes you into seafood Think you can hide, well, it’ll find you Think that you’re safe, well, it’ll watch you Girl, I don’t think I can defend you When we become the next ones on the menu My feelings are sinking, just like our surroundings My heart’s not just yours now, but hey I tried The monster emerges, waves pounding our sailboat Well, guess this looks like the last wave, goodbye Run from the ocean to the seashore Run from the seashore to the city Run from the city, but it’s no use Run till the sharktopus makes you into seafood Think you can hide, well, it’ll find you Think that you’re safe, well, it’ll watch you Girl, I don’t think I can defend you When we become the next ones on the menu Run from the ocean to the seashore Run from the seashore to the city Run from the city, but it’s no use Run till the sharktopus makes you into seafood Think you can hide and I will hold you Think that you’re safe and I’ll console you Girl, I will always be there with you Cause we’ve become the next ones on the menu

Just how much do they call me their friend? If only they knew how being me has been No one will think twice when I come outside Although yesterday was the day I died Every day I get to see death a-comin’ straight at me But once I think I’m really dead, I wake up in my same old bed Sometimes I ring at heaven’s bell, sometimes I see the gates of hell And everyday it’s all the same, and when somebody calls my name They don’t remember that I died, and I die more a bit inside If you don’t care, you got it backwards It’s not who killed me. You’re the bastards. I’ve been to hell and back with these guys Been shot, been stabbed, had rats eat my eyes I’m like, “hey dudes, you act like you don’t know Before, you saw my organs on the road” The first time was nice but now I wake and curse Too much getting stabbed in the back fucking hurts I die and I come back to life on a whim Just like Jesus did, but people noticed him Every day I get to see death a-comin’ straight at me But once I think I’m really dead, I wake up in my same old bed Sometimes I ring at heaven’s bell, sometimes I see the gates of hell And everyday it’s all the same, and when somebody calls my name They don’t remember that I died, and I die more a bit inside If you don’t care, you got it backwards It’s not who killed me. You’re the bastards. Oh my god, they killed Kenny (You bastards) Oh my god, they killed Kenny (You bastards) Oh my god, they killed Kenny (You bastards) Oh my god, they killed Kenny (You bastards)

No love will come when you look like a warthog And nobody wants to see a talking whale Reflections scowl back in disapproval This broken door could lead to your holy grail This microwave can bring out new mutations Transform and morph into a new you So if you're brave come feel the radiation And fold your genes into a new you Your head and your heart's protruding from itself Your spleen and your spine's imploding on itself Your brain and your eye's obscuring your old self And not to mention glowing wings and lasers flying out your head They might be superpowered side effects Or you could drop dead No love will come when you look like a warthog (They'll never see beyond the piggy face and snout) And nobody wants to see a talking whale (And so you wail just like a whale, just like a whale, just like a...) Reflections scowl back in disapproval (Deoxyribonucleic acid, blame it) This broken door could lead to your holy fail (You know you wanna, know you wanna, know you wanna...) This microwave can bring out new mutations Transform and morph into a new you So if you're brave come feel the radiation And fold your genes into a new you This microwave can bring out new mutations Transform and morph into a new you So if you're brave come feel warped vibrations And fold your genes into a new you

I need a Match right now I’m the biggest flamer that you know I’m a bad boy And I was Never sad when Santa gave me coal Come see things From my view And maybe I can lighten up your life I love to see things in a fiery state Just give me a torch and I won’t hesitate I put the sin in incinerate I’m starting to see that the world looks better in flames, whoa Start spilling some gas, grab a torch and prepare to take aim, whoa When things go bad, the flames ignite I’ve never had a problem twice You may find Where I live The whole city has no trees in sight Hey hippies, Don’t freak out I recycle ash, so it’s alright My love for Flame boils I even kinda want to go to hell I think even Nero might look up to me And I don’t need a computer to burn a CD Billy Joel didn’t start the fire… that was me I’m starting to see that the world looks better in flames, oh Start spilling some gas, grab a torch and prepare to take aim, oh A fresh lit match makes me so glad Tell Johnny Cash I said “my bad” When I told mom that the house burning down wasn’t me, she called me a liar Unfortunately she’d figured me out… my pants were on fire I’m starting to see that the world looks better in flames, oh Start spilling some gas, grab a torch and prepare to take aim, oh

The first mistake I made was not filling up with gas And then I screwed myself when I had a few drinks and crashed And now I’m in a loop of free fall through abyss Now I won’t be going home and I’m really really pissed Never been this far away from home Now I can’t see anyone at all I told myself I’d be found but I guess I lied The timer’s ticking down but what’s left of me is stuck on this ride Now I’m lost in space and my engine has collapsed Communication’s down and I can’t check Google Maps I checked my phone but here, I don’t have any bars The only place I’m going is over the stars Never been this far away from home Now I can’t see anyone at all And the stars so vast surround me yet I’m all alone Never been this far away from home Now I can’t see anyone at all But for now I’m here, waiting for the day that I cease to breathe Then I’ll be swallowed up and get my own constellation named after me

From afar, you see a shining star And though it’s dark, you see it from so far away It sheds its light, things start to look more bright Then bam, it’s outta sight Where did it go? Well, I’ll tell you… Black holes suck things in from their surroundings Can’t get out, the force is so astounding They’ll destroy all happiness and light And that’s what you do Once you get to the event horizon You’ll find nothing you can lay your eyes on Sucks so much that light cannot escape The darkness that’s you Gravity helps keep you on your feet And though it’s weak, it holds you yet you’re still free But add it up when stars get big enough Then space and time’s messed up And what’s to blame? Well, I’ll tell you Black holes suck things in from their surroundings Can’t get out, the force is so astounding They’ll destroy all happiness and light And that’s what you do Once you get to the event horizon You’ll find nothing you can lay your eyes on Sucks so much that light cannot escape The darkness that’s you A black hole in space, is a compact mass of darkness That can deform space and time, but they can’t be seen cause light will not be reflected Black holes form when heavy stars collapse when they die Then they grow by pulling in stars, planets and can even merge with other black holes There’s a point where something being sucked in can’t leave Where the gravity gets too strong… by the way there’s probably one in the center of our galaxy Black holes suck things in from their surroundings Can’t get out, the force is so astounding They’ll destroy all happiness and light And that’s what you do Once you get to the event horizon You’ll find nothing you can lay your eyes on Sucks so much that light cannot escape The darkness that’s you Ooh la la la...

Hulkulele 04:08
I'm giant, I'm strong and the mutant of the town You know that I'm near when a building tumbles down But smashing and bashing has never been my goal Cause really, deep down I got the music in my soul I'm the Hulk, and I just wanna play the ukulele, oh But I sulk when the others tell me that I'm crazy, oh Spider-Man says that I can't cause my hands will crush it flat I'm the Hulk and I just wanna play the ukulele So I got up the nerve and went to the music store And they told me they'd bill me for that broken door I tried playing one and it was going pretty bad And expensive objects don't like me when I'm mad What started as "Hulk strum!" devolved into "Hulk smash!" I offered some lab coats because I had no cash At that point I felt like my music dream was done And for once in my life I felt like the puny one I'm the Hulk and I just wanna play the ukulele, oh But I sulk when the others tell me that I'm crazy, oh Wolverine says that I can't cause my hands will crush it flat I'm the Hulk and I just wanna play the ukulele I clear the pools when I swim I wreck the stage when I dance Got a lifetime ban from football And I ripped all my leather pants But still, I Marvel at the ukulele looking for a sign And I know I have a song in me that's gonna smash your mind And I'm angry and I scream and then it makes me feel so green Then one day I woke up and much to my surprise There was a giant ukulele right before my eyes With chrome plated strings and a can of super glue Along with a Banner that said "To Hulk, Love Bruce" Now I play through the day and I play into the night And I play for the army whenever they stop by So make sure you're watching when my first concert's shown Cause I'm the most smashing ukulele player ever known I'm the Hulk and I just wanna play the ukulele, oh But I sulk when the others tell me that I'm crazy, oh Don't tell me that I can't or my hands will crush you flat I'm the Hulk and I just wanna play the ukulele

about

Intended as a stopgap release during the four-year production of "Psycho Delicacy," "Abracadaver" is a curious snapshot of a band in metamorphosis. The EP consists of three tracks from the previous release "Exploding Head Syndrome," one track from "Psycho Delicacy" and three exclusive songs. These exclusive songs include the viral hit "Hulkulele," featured on AlbinoBlacksheep. "Abracadaver" documents the band exploring the psychedelic trappings that existed on the fringes of their previous comedy album while paving the way for the non-novelty work ahead. The end result features novelty and psychedelia blended together in interesting ways from the farcically serious to the seriously farcical, even if it doesn't quite gel as a whole.
