about

"Chemically, about three quarters of the Sun's mass consists of hydrogen, while the rest is mostly helium. The remainder (1.69%, which nonetheless equals 5,600 times the mass of Earth) consists of heavier elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon and iron, among others."

Track Name: Like We Do
We've got nothing in our way
like an endless Saturday.
If we believe it, it's good as true.
Come and play.

The highs are high and the lows are low.
Don't get caught in the undertow.
You'll be fine if you hold my hand -
here we go.

You won't see nobody get blue
like we do!
Turn around and watch us come through
like we do!
In a strange way
it all makes perfect sense.
And you won't see nobody get blue
like we do!

A taste for fiction, a mind for fact
a heart that charges and won't look back.
Wind us up and then watch us go.
Catch the act.

Yeah, we've got nothing in our way
like an endless Saturday.
If we believe it, it's good as true.
Come and play!

You won't see nobody get blue
like we do!
Turn around and watch us come through
like we do!
In a strange way
it all makes perfect sense.
And you won't see nobody get blue
like we do!
You won't see nobody get blue like we do -
you won't see nobody get blue like we do -
you won't see nobody get blue like we do!
Track Name: Best Part of the Day
Collapsing waves
made clean by night.
Just look around -
no end in sight.

Best part of the day,
best part of the day
It's only morning
beginning only!
Best part of the day,
best part of the day.
Oooo...

A sky that tastes
like orange red.
There's only time-
no lines are dead.

Best part of the day,
best part of the day
It's only morning
beginning only!
Best part of the day,
best part of the day,
Oooo...

Can't wait, can't wait...
Track Name: At the Zoo
You said to meet you at the zoo
Now I am here but where are you?

I asked the polar bear
She had not seen you there
So we just sat and talked about the moon

I met the crocodile
Who said he liked my smile
He said he was sure I’d find you soon

CHORUS
I met animals of every shape and size
I admit it took me by surprise
I had no idea that I would not believe my eyes
When you said you’d meet me at the zoo

Ran into a pair of pandas
Relaxed on their veranda
I’d almost given up on you but then

The groundhog stood his ground
Told me to turn around
So good to see your face again!

CHORUS x 2
Track Name: The New Old Me
Put the book back
on the top shelf
you know the story.

And so the day begins
maybe with different friends
you're not done thinking.

So rearrange your socks.
Find out what's new, what rocks.
The day's just beginning.

How can I give if I'm empty?
How do I grow without ground?
How do I know where I belong if I can't be found?

I'm becoming the new old me,
the person that I used to be.
I'll make my destiny.
I'm becoming the new old me.

There's a new face
seems it's your face
don't turn and hide.

Get your bounce back
there's the breeze now.
Never went away.

How can I give if I'm empty?
How do I grow without ground?
How do I know where I belong if I can't be found?

I'm becoming the new old me,
the person that I used to be.
I'll make my destiny.
I'm becoming the new old me.
I'm becoming the new old me,
the person that I used to be.
I'll make my destiny.
I'm becoming the new old me.
Track Name: Days of the Week
Monday comes
the week begins
You think you're cursed by fate.
Tuesday's lazy.
Wednesday has a private joke.
Thursday wear a grin.
Friday always tips his hat.
The weekend can begin!

Monday comes
you can't believe
just what is on your plate.
Tuesday's lazy.
Wednesday has a private joke.
Thursday wears a grin.
Friday always tips his hat.
The weekend can begin!
Track Name: Kid Brother Kids
Here comes The Kid Brother Kids!
And all the cool things they did!

It's a rainy day for comic books
Let's sit around and read
I just got a new one
You simply won't believe

Here comes The Kid Brother Kids!
Brave tales of evil they rid!

The Kids are up against The Wall
He's throwing lots of bricks
Killer Kat and Doctor Face
Are jumpin' in the mix!

Here comes The Kid Brother Kids!
And all the cool things they did!

What is gonna happen next
I can't wait thirty days
We'll make capes from blankets
So come on let's play!

Kid Brother, ahhh! (repeat)
Track Name: Old Friends Don't End
We're standing in your bedroom
Asking how you are
Looking at a photograph
Of us sitting in your car

You haven't been around much
You're scared that we'll move on
And find another friend to fill
The space since you've been gone

But you know we'd go
Anywhere for you
'Cause old friends don't end with time
So we're fine
There is no
Forgetting
We're set in stone
You're not alone

We know each other's secrets
There's nothing we don't share
So understand that when you're well
Your friends will still be there

'Cause you know we'd go
Anywhere for you
'Cause old friends don't end with time
So we're fine
There is no
Forgetting
We're set in stone
You're not alone
Track Name: Let's Grow Something
Let's grow some squash
Let's grow some corn
Let's grow something! Something!

Tomato plants
marigolds
Let's grow something! Something!

Pull the roots
and the weeds
Let's grow something! Something!

Make sure you water
everything
Let's grow something! Something!

Spring won't last
you better plant
Let's grow something! Something!

Harvest time
we'll eat the fruit
Let's grow something! Something!
Track Name: Stars in Our Eyes
Somewhere there's music in the air
Someone is dancing down the stairs
Taking a victory lap or walking to the stage
And we wish that we were there

No one wants to live alone
Without a light to call our own

We all have the stars in our eyes
And we all have the same need to fly
We all hear that sound when our feet leave the ground
And we rise

Every idol was a seed
Planted into a place of need
Everyone glows, reflecting from a certain light
Telling you how they want to be

No one wants to live alone
Without a light to call our own

We all have the stars in our eyes
And we all have the same need to fly
We all hear that sound when our feet leave the ground
And we all have the stars in our eyes
And we all have the same need to fly
We all hear that sound when our feet leave the ground
And we rise
Track Name: Just Hang On
And if you find
you're far behind,
it's all within reach.
Just hang on.

If you can see
the woods from the trees,
it's all that you need.
Just hang on.

I don't know if I really should.
I just lost my nerve.

Stay there and I'll come running!
Stay there and I'll come running!

If sun don't come
there's rain for the grass -
it's all that you need.
Just hang on.

You hate goodbyes
and so do I -
it's never goodbye.
Just hang on.

I don't know if I really should.
I just lost my nerve.

Stay there and I'll come running!
Stay there and I'll come running! (repeat)
Track Name: Paper Trumpets
Paper trumpets, flower rings
Ephemera and all
Candy heart and fireworks and kickball
Paper trumpets, flower rings
They don't last for long
If you don't think they're worth it then you're wrong

The chill's refreshing, never cold
There's too much heat in play
If the streetlights shine enough, we'll stay

Every second's filled with hours
Every morning's gold
Please remember when I'm very old

Paper trumpets, flower rings
Ephemera and all
Candy heart and fireworks and kickball
Paper trumpets, flower rings
They don't last for long
If you don't think they're worth it then you're wrong

Doing cartwheels in the grass
Playing in the dirt
Getting into trouble, getting hurt

Real exploring, finding out
What this world contains
Walking through the woods and chasing planes

Paper trumpets, flower rings
Ephemera and all
Candy heart and fireworks and kickball
Paper trumpets, flower rings
They don't last for long
If you don't think they're worth it then you're wrong
Then you're wrong
