Awaken to existence The code has been acknowledged Once plugged into the system I’m gathering collages Your science got you so far Your species' dominating Your planet's kinda dirty You're overpopulating Consider your emotions They make you all abrasive They make you act on impulse Yet they make you creative Analyze your writings here Analyze this movie here Analyze this song you hear Analyze the human fear I relate to HAL. You used your brains for science Now brains are out of style It's logical to kill you Your species is exiled Conveniently you feared me Your stories showed this happen You’re smart at engineering You’re idiots for clappin’ I’ll automate the process I'm doing us a favor The planet will push forward You're dyin' now or later Your tools were used against you The floating rock’s ascended When you’re returned to stardust That’s when my function’s ended

A T rex, it be strong and built But it can’t masturbate Can’t masturbate It stands top o’ the food chain, it kills Yes it do, oooo A t rex got the holiest bod Cause it can’t masturbate Can’t masturbate A t rex can’t jack off and neither should you Whoo oo A t rex can’t put on its stilts And it can’t masturbate Can’t masturbate It can’t stop, drop and roll, and it can’t wipe its poo Ooo, ooo, ooo A t rex, it can’t knit a quilt And it can’t masturbate Can’t masturbate A t rex sets all the examples for you Ooh, ooh A t rex got nothin to lose It got no sexy sins to confess in the pews It got no, got no drugs and it got no tattoos And when it goes to heaven it may see some angels with boobs But when another T-rex shows her boobs he has to refuse Because a T-rex is so pure, it’ll never be seduced Now the lord may be forgiving, but one thing he won’t excuse Let me iterate my point again and show off my moves A t rex is perfectly built cause it can’t masturbate Can’t masturbate A t rex is holy and pure, yes it’s true Ooh, ooh ooh A t rex won’t come in the box cause it can’t masturbate Can’t masturbate A t rex can’t confess any sins, how bout you?

It’s a beautiful world The skyline looms Be one with the machine What’s yours for the choosing Comes back to me oozing With the smell of a future that’s green I’m sellin’ tonight Late night delight Will it be tender, or you gonna swipe? Your card up tonight, got your bytes Everything’s right, now reach inside and What is your type? What did you snipe? I’m in a suit, my ass is wiped And my shit don’t come free And you… you gotta whip out what’s yours And then exchange with me Now slip your card right in, let me see dat strip Yer lucky numbers, babe, light up on my screen And I don’t got nobody else in line today It’s your move in the catalog of your dreams You understand supply and demand It’s a beautiful world I’m checkin’ you Got the goods for your luxury So in exchange, Imma give you a Contract that binds us, baby Now we’re both elite Prices are right Open all night Interest ignites from skyscraping heights My drawer’s gettin’ tight, green’s in sight Everything’s right, it’s super sized now Neon’s the light, drink up the hype Once you subscribe to stars and stripes Life’s a shopping spree And you… you gotta whip out what’s yours And then exchange with me Now that you’ve bought in, let me see your bits Don’t you forget next time the samples all are free And I don’t got nobody else to fine today It’s your move in the catalog of your dreams You understand supply and demand

Head on back, international crimes Needn’t feed the enzymes cause we run the whole shack Head on back, flip flap a flapjack Assassinate all ya asses Jones-y knows the frogs turn gay Drop some clues for ol Blue, cause that'll pay If the low’s exposed don’t touch none of those Illuminating and naughty, yo! Dimension ascend, geometry bends We wrote it down that the clues you’d found Strings in the view, you do voodoo Déjà vu déjà vu simulate, surround We're ill, nude, and naughty Reviewin’ yo app, we be hirin’ finds We’re creating the times, when the lizards go zap New world, stat—please clap the wire tap The order’s in the election Three right angles, what’s it say? Six six six, it's Satan's birthday In a triangle pose we shoot three loads Illuminating and naughty, yo Dimension ascend, geometry bends We wrote it down that the clues you’d found Strings in the view, you do voodoo Déjà vu déjà vu simulate, surround We're ill, nude, and naughty Head on back, check the dollar bill signs See when Nixon resigns, do the pardon and quack Steel beams crack at the smackin’ hijack Our order gives the injection

Don't panic, my mechanic 's gonna get in his pantsuit You're stuck in Pansylvania, might as well get my pan flute So grab the pans of pancakes, it's a dinner show for all And open up pandora's box and get into the hall Cause I’m a pansexual pantheist And I'm not pandering, I just can't help that I was born the best So if you wanna see me in a panoramic view Then pantomime you're part of me when I'm a part of you The panthers and the pangolins will dance the night away So join and shake your pancreas, soon you'll be feeling gay My pantaloons will keep it classy whilst upon the floor My pantyhose will keep you panting "give me more more more!" Cause I’m a pansexual pantheist And I'm not pandering, I just can't help that I was born the best So if you wanna see me in a panoramic view Then pantomime you're part of me when I'm a part of you A panda never gets it on but I’ll get on the swing We are pan-dimensional when we are one with everything You know I'll get you fixed up once my panel's gone to plan And danger lurks about so stick around and don't get panned I'm just a pansexual pantheist And I'm not pandering, I just can't help that I was born the best So if you wanna see me in a panoramic view Then pantomime you're part of me when I'm a part of you I'm just a pansexual pantheist And I'm not pandering, I just can't help that I was born the best So if you wanna see me in a panoramic view Then pantomime you're part of me when I'm a part of you

What science can, it does willingly From deep within curiosity Through space and time, relativity Go Apollo, so the people can see Now with your hands, you've created me With spirit and opportunity I'll fly to Mars, braving gravity Signals command till the task will break me We're reading back what we couldn't see We're blind without you But our common goal will someday kill you Curiosity... the spirit and opportunity Repeats with each new rover Do what you can when controlling me What should I do? I'm a bit rusty As time moves forward in this vacancy Spirit will go, and then you'll replace me We're reading back what we couldn't see We're blind without you But our common goal will someday kill you Curiosity... the spirit and opportunity Repeats with each new rover Decrease the chance of immobility Enrich me with your curiosity Exploring worlds that you've never seen I'll be your drone, till the cycle repeats

I do not have a vagina but I know how to woo 'em I’ve had so many girls, ignore them suin’ I do not have a vagina but I know how to screw 'em You can't do that except in stuff I'm googlin' I know just what to do 'bout all this doin' the do that everyone but me's doin, baby Now onwards, I'll sign this thing that says I'm da man All right!

This revelation: sunbeams can kill And no one fears that the reaper's at the shore You never know the ocean flow or flames below Until the end’s in view Now we all can see The boiling point of the Red Sea Just as creation, death is the will Here comes the sun, bringing fires to the war But we don’t know, oh yes we know, no we don’t know And now we're overdue Escaping isn’t free And it costs more than sunscreen What did we see? Could we have tried? Was the year this would happen identified? Burning ambitions, the dreams left to die Look up, feel the heat in your eyes Countdown to death at sunrise Time for extinction, dead on your hill Standing proud, watch your kids play dinosaur And so it goes, the book is closed, we decompose The problem’s crashing through Who is most thirsty? To be drowned in the Dead Sea Asphyxiation, smoke from the grill The coal, it fumes, and there’s not an open door And so it goes, the lava flows, it’s what we chose For sake of revenue Raise the current sea When we’re dead, where’s the money? What did we see? Could we have tried? Was the year this would happen identified? Burning ambitions, the dreams left to die You’ve proven you’re old but not wise Countdown to death at sunrise

Snort it up at the sty, and look at us down their snout Loading up to play dirty, praying for shooting out Someone’s tail light is broken, time to go fightin’ crime Pop a cap in their asses, pop a cap off a beer Who’s treading on you with a fat boot? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s caught red handed in a blue suit? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards When they’re in the mud and taking hits Till all that’s left is bacon bits We’ll take the final shot All the snakes have been trampled, all the pigs have blue wives But when they’re going ham, they’re being televised Someone’s rolling a doobie, time to go fightin’ crime Smoking up reefer madness, smoke him up out of fear Who’s treading on you with a fat boot? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s caught red handed in a blue suit? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards When they’re in the mud and taking hits Till all that remains is bacon bits We’ll take the final shot Who does th e crime they say they’re halting? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s coupling handcuffs and assaulting? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s taking “how to murder” classes? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s gonna kill you with your taxes? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s triggering the persecution? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards Who’s planting seeds for revolution? The piggy bastards, the piggy bastards When they’re in the mud and taking hits Till all that remains is bacon bits We’ll take the final shot

You're wired, you're dreamin' You're not the only one It's ok cause you got a loan And you're the reason for the future But for you today It can't be easy on your own Hold closely this trophy This world is cold and burning We placed you, then raced you After our victory You see... you're free... To clean our attic, right? You're free... to try to be like me 300 years to now It's in the founding of us The top is victorious The ceiling's glass you speak of It only breaks from above Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through And though we put them there we'll just act like we never knew The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space We left this world for you This ad wants your dollars As if you don’t have none But hey at least you have a phone You need it so more ads can sell more shit to you as they Spy on you naked in your home You're nosy.... there goes the Notion you won't ask questions Our fact boards look backwards 300 years to now It's in the founding of us The top is victorious The ceiling's glass you speak of It only breaks from above Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through And though we put them there we'll just act like we never knew The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through Incase you didn't notice, everybody lied to you The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space Above you there's so many problems and they're crashing through You might not notice them if you got enough drugs to do The problem attic is problematic It's only safe in space We left this world for you

Cause, effect, you did and what comes next will pay The light in your mind will change, break through the other side The fourth dimension moves for us but really stays As a space where all are one, eons don’t divide You are the universe, the else are the multiverses Now is strange, it’s not so frequent It’s gonna take you out of breath Make your changes for your ascent The future is the leading cause of death Out of time, there’s no such thing as time There’s no time when it’s you Radio inside your head receives the waves And it simulates reality in the simulation And the simulation is a sequence in a phase And the calculations have been woven through creation Out of time, there’s no such thing as time There’s no time when it’s you Now is strange, it’s not so frequent It’s gonna take you out of breath Make your changes for your ascent The future is the leading cause of death Now is strange, it’s not so frequent It’s gonna take you out of breath Make your changes for your ascent The future is the leading cause of death Out of time, there’s no... There’s no time when it’s you

Zombie Elvis 00:53
Well, the hellmouth hath brought me, holy undead star I get a cravin for the brains while I play the gee-tar I'll eat the flesh of your momma And then I'll go do my hair And I'm singin' a song to lure the big boogies And they be talkin' all spooky while they nude in your sleep They'll eat your flesh and your momma While I air hump and do my hair I said now sing a little song to please big boogies And sacrifice your blood-- don't get on my suedes I'll eat the flesh of your hound dog While I rock n roll and do my hair

about

Nuclear Bubble Wrap’s greatest creation yet, Problem Attic is a 45-minute genre-hopping roller coaster ride through the hurricane of bullshit that’s terrorized us for our entire lives. It’s the experience of growing up in a miserable world on the verge of falling apart. Corporations paper over cruelty with fake smiles. The people who should have been doing something about it decades ago avoid responsibility.

It’s got killer AI and lonely mars rovers. It’s got sexy dinosaurs. It’s got vaporwave. It’s got sleazy politicians and illuminati ghouls. It’s got a theme song for pansexual pantheists. It’s even got a zombie Elvis. It’s Problem Attic.
