Track Name: The Hour of the One and Only
The Hour of the One and Only

You shine like a star
The orange light illuminates the sky from afar
See it shining bright like a nuclear war
There is only one way to make it through the night
Pass through the one and only

This one's for the one and only love
It's the hour of the one and only
See the fire falling from the sky
It burns for the one and only

Alone in the cold
Abandoned by the light of belief and control
You cry for the fire that vanished into the smoke
That follows you everywhere you go:
The ghost of the one and only

This one's for the one and only love
It's the hour of the one and only
See the fire falling from the sky
It burns for the one and only

It's the hour of the One and Only
See the angels tumbling down from grace
They fall for the one and only

And all I want and all I need is you
And all I have and all I need is you

This one's for the one and only love
It's the hour of the one and only
See the fire falling from the sky
It burns for the one and only

It's the hour of the One and Only
See the angels tumbling down from grace
They fall for the one and only
Track Name: Ecophagy
Oh dearest family
I've spoiled all that you gave me
And it's all I had
And all I need
Is you

Oh glorious surplus
We've ravaged all that you offered us
Now we're ravaged too,
But trying to
Move on

Dark as the sunlight shining
Cold as the earth's core burning
We're trying and trying and trying to unlearn this
But it’s graveyard shifts and then up at the earliest mornings
Track Name: The House of Moloch
The House of Moloch

Born in the house of Moloch, baby
When you grown up you're never going to sleep
Electric lights burn out your eyes
You die right there on your feet

Oh, in the house of Moloch, baby

And all I want and all I need is you
And all I have and all I need is you

Born in the house of Moloch

No one will remember and no one will care
If you were ever even really there
You see no, speak no, hear no evil
You sleep like a baby and you mind the steeple

Oh, in the house of Moloch, baby

And all I want and all I need is you
And all I have and all I need is you

Born in the house of Moloch
Track Name: Cobalt Blues
Relax
We're only fracturing this stone
The aquifer's water's turned
To poison on its own

Be in good health
As we’re poisoning the well
Luxuriate
In the perfumed chemical smell

Cobalt blues
On the phone to you
Congo calling
How do you do?

Tonight
The coal we found inside
The mountaintops
That we’ve blown off
Will fuel your firelight

So behave
And keep digging that grave
Without me
You wouldn’t even
Have a soul to save

Cobalt blues
On the phone to you
Congo calling
Still trying to get through

Cobalt blues
On the phone to you
Congo calling
How do you do?
Track Name: Fertilize My Heart
NARRATOR:
Life can be lonely for an algal bloom. The Mississippi Dead Zone was born and raised in the gulf of Mexico, fed by fertilizer and runoff of at the mouth of the Mississippi River. The largest algal bloom in the world, it thought it was the only one of its kind. Then one day, from across the ancient trails of Atlantic sets and waves, it noticed another: The Baltic Sea Algae Bloom.

BALTIC SEA ALGAE BLOOM:
Fertilize my heart
Oxidize the dark parts
Tear the world apart
With you so far away

MISSISSIPPI DEAD ZONE:
You are a landlocked dream
Blue and green
In the Baltic Sea
Two of a kind, you and me

BOTH:
Hypoxia

NARRATOR:
These two felt destined to be together, but how? The expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, the confines of the Scandinavian Peninsula, so much stood square in the way. But they could feel the oceans slowly rising, and knew that all they had to do was wait. Before too long, these barriers to their boundless love would be submerged, and the two could reach across the great expanse and hold each other as they have long dreamed to do.

BALTIC SEA ALGAE BLOOM:
Nutrients saturate
Eutrophicate
Aiming to suffocate
Without you in my arms

BOTH:
Hypoxia

As the world gets warmer
Our love grows stronger
The poisoned waters
Rising to bring us together

BOTH:
Hypoxia
Fertilize my heart
Track Name: Onkalo
It's in the water
It's in the air
It's in the soil
It's in your bones

Radioactivity
Touches everything.

It's everywhere you are now

Onkalo
Save our souls
For now
We don't care how

Alpha, beta, gamma
Wide awake in this half-life
Drifting towards delta
Forgotten in time

Radioactivity
Will outlive you and me

Entombed in salt mines
Turned into glass
Diluted in the ocean
Buried in the past

It is not dying.

Radioactivity
Touches everything.

It's everywhere you are now
