Bass riff I wrote a long time ago, lyrics I wrote much more now-ish. It's a song about humanity and it's wacky adventures.



Four billion years have come and gone like a thunderstorm
and it's not the world it was when the rains came.
When the flood drained it washed away our names, it left us in stereo.
And we took pleasure in the Siren's song.

She was singing out, Boy, it's a cold world and it's gonna get colder before it gets gone.
Justice Man's gonna come and gonna find ya -- gonna learn ya good.
She said, society's broken, bleeding out, all of the humans are sick, their bones are out.
Cleansing fire is from the heavens.

She said, is this not just the way we go on our own to atone for independent thought?
No, this is where we prove ourselves -- this is Europa.
This is not just a one-way gravel road leading home, stuck-in-the-ditch.
This world -- this is where we prove ourselves.

Two thousand years of this apocalypse pasquinade made an impact;
bruises on the neck of justice and broken bones of the barbarian.
You really think that Mr. Gray should save us? And turn back the clock of social integrity?
I don't know about you, but I think we're doing alright alone.

Man, it's a cold wind, but it's only warming up, so shut up your damn mouth.
Try living two hundred years ago and talk to me about progress.
Nothing's broken that can't be fixed. Nothing's bleeding that can't be stitched up tight.
Justice Man is gonna have to find a new world, cuz this one's ours.

All these worlds are yours, except Europa.
Attempt no landings here.

"Irreverent yet poignant, the experimental indie Ghostbustery of Jim Frankenstein evokes a malty, existential angst with the bourbon oak undertones of a bassy pasquinade. Jim is truly the soul of an old man who died asking 'why?'" -Stone McSullen
