Bases Covered Lyrics

Postby normsherman » Fri Aug 22, 2014 8:12 pm

Lyrics for fake pantheistic praise band "Bases Covered" CD: "For His or Her or Its or Their Glory."

Bases Covered

I believe in you
I believe in me
I believe in global warmin'
I believe I might have a gluten allergy

I believe in heavaawn
I believe in a Ragnorock
Harry Crishna, Vishnu, Gilgamesh, nirvana
Cuz f*k it, why the hell not?

I'm rubbin' blood on my windows, posts and lintels
Please don't send an angel to murder my infant

Bases Covered
From A to the letter Z
I'll walk across coals, ill slaughter some goats
If it'll keep you from smiting my family

El Ron Hubbard
To the church of the Latter Day
I'm down for whatever
As long as I never
Wind up in the Stygian nightmare realm
you created to punish the things that you made
you created to punish the things that you made
you created to punish the things that you made

***

Little Baby Mouse Dreams

You and me
We might be
Just memories, in some little baby mouse dream
Don't wake up-- sleep in all that u want
I don't wanna disappear

Living our lives, fleeting as they seem
In some little baby mouse's
(little baby mouse's )
Little baby mouse's
Little tiny baby mouse dreams

***

Zeus

You turned into a swan, and had your way with chicks
You turned into a bull, and you had your way with chicks
You turned into an atmospheric cloud of gold dust, and had your way with chicks...

***

Lord Xenu

There's a spirit inside me
And it's centuries old
Ancient and alien
Enslaved and controlled

By an intergalactic warlord
Who put the spirits up inside
Of a volcano, which he blew up
With a hydrogen bomb

Lord Xenu, I will have my revenge!
As regressed hypnotherapy draws my spirit
From the nuclear wind
Lord Xenu,
I'll never believe your subversive media lies

***

Baast

You're cute, and you're mighty
And you wake me up in the mornin'
To put food in your bowl
(food in your bowl)
Oh yahhh

You're cute, and you're tabby
And you lay up on my shit like you could give a damn
And you don't
Cuz you're the ancient goddess of warfare

Singin'
Baast! (meow meow meow)
I will spread your likeness round upon all the internet
Instagram
Youtube (youtube!)
Facebook and Twitter

Baast! (meow meow meow)
You were good enough for the Pharoah's
And Lord knows you're good enough for me

You're cute, and you're holy
You were mummified in the ancient times
And you were buried, in sarcophagi
With the richest folks around

You're cute, you're righteous
And I know you know it too, that much is obvious
So please stop attacking my feet
I'm trying to put on these socks
__
You puke on the rug (you puke on the rug)
You puke on the rug,
I'll clean it up
I'll clean it up.

***

Rise and Shine Cthulhu

Nameless Unspeakable Horror
I revel at your feet
Or whatever it is that a bat-like squid god
has for feet

Nameless Unspeakable Horror
You haunt my every dream
And I'll throw myself right out that window
If it means that I can be free!

The stars align, it'll soon be time
The arctic ice is melting, rise and shine
Cthulhu
Fhtagn R'lyeh!

***

Somehow I Know

You don't know that there's a God
But somehow I know there isn't
And when we die there's nothing more
I'm absolutely certain

God is a construct that weak people use to cope
God is fairytale, there is no hope!
"Give us all some Jelly"

This is amazing. Finally a religious/not religious movement I can get behind. I wish it were real so I could buy it. I'd also love if you ever released "Smells like Creme Brulee".

I really need an equalizer for this.

Albums require more songs, a minimum of ten. I tried to commission a bbardle last year, but the Muse, the Fates, and Norm's schedule weren't having it.
Anyway, Norm will eventually have enough tunes, and Bases Covered will be on that album, remixed and all shiny like.
If it were up to me, Norm would use Hearty White's poetry rejection letter, and make it into a Bbardle duet. Or sing a Frank Zappa tribute piece with Frank Key, and call it Speaking Frankly. That could hasten the day, as well as introduce a whole new Bbardle genre using DC authors, called Norm and Friends that could be hustled on one of those late-night cable commercials that use one line cuts from each song as the titles scroll, and the announcer asks you which song you were listening two when your first child was conceived.
I'd also like it if the next album had a Norwegian flavor so we could increase DC's Norwegian subscriber base. You can stay out all day in that long Norwegian winter.
O, did I say you? I meant Nosferatu.
Norwegians Would might make a nice cover.
Anyway, maybe a Bbardle about Lutefisk would make a good impression. Garrison Keillor says of Lutefisk "Most lutefisk is not edible by normal people. It is reminiscent of the afterbirth of a dog or the world's largest chunk of phlegm." The Sons of Norway, an organization founded to repopulate Norway following Keillor's remark, writes, " Lutefisk (dried cod treated with lye) must surely be the strangest culinary effort credited to the Norwegians, but what a treat when prepared properly!"

Is that fish crypto?
Is Bono available?

The potential Norwegian DC subscriber base has to be massive. And don't overlook the Finns.

I understand the Finns are all off Tangoing.

There are some seriously less than subtle suggestions going on there.
What about a pop tune about a t-rex with an itchy butt in the style of Ace of Base call it "When I can't reach". Or one about Jesus waking up in the burial cave and wondering if he should sleep in or get up.
Norms really got a talent had that human battery track stuck in my head for weeks.

I disagree about the norwegian market though, I think maybe we need to be targeting mono-limbed morris dancers. That's where the real moneys at

Oh I'm so going to hell for enjoying this so much. Wondering, if I believe Lord Xenu's media lies and bargain with my soul, could I trade it for singing as beautifully as Sheena Majdan.

I would love that if this gets re-recorded, it is in some format like Bohemian Rhapsody.
