Team Lads 03:51
VERSE 1: They're on the screen They're a team If you call it a team you might mean They're a group Or a troop They're a collection of misspent youth CHORUS: Oh the young bloods Oh the young From the depths of their hearts To the tips of their tongues Raining fire Reign of fun Coming down from the sky Falling on everyone VERSE 2: They're in a dream It's a scene Of impossible scenarios And that nose Really knows From the tip of it right to his toes BRIDGE: C'mon boyz this is what we're here for C'mon lads this is what we've always waited to be C'mon boyz this is what we're made of What we're made of COUNTER BRIDGE: Michael, Ray, Gavin Mogar, X Ray, Vav
VERSE 1: On days like this I'm glad that I'm alive So I can see The whole world passing by And when I go I'd like to leave behind A legacy From me to all mankind VERSE 2: On days like these I'm happy when online Except for when Their comments make me cry And then I see A little hope inside A monument To get behind CHORUS: Anybody could've made it And anybody can make it today But only one guy could've named it And he did, and it's never [ever] gonna be the same VERSE 3: On days like this I think about the scale Of Youtube's reach And numbers simply fail And what they made And joked about online Has built a name In record time
Lindsay 02:58
VERSE 1: Do you know what it feels like To be a single A battery? What use is it anyway? Like winning a 10 cent lottery PRE CHORUS: The hand behind the camera The voice behind a jewel The female Achievement Hunter The other one in the room The hands behind the editing Of Lets Plays now and then Deserves her share of credit For putting up with them VERSE 2: Do you know what it feels like To be an Internet cat? Can I has the grape fruit? Do you wants to Google Chat? CHORUS: Lindsay you found a reason in him Like the reason for gravity And your lungs start breathe it in Fill your heart like a cavity Oh oh oh
INTRO: YOLO // You only live once Put your hands in the air // Cause it's time to have fun YOLO // You only live once Put your hands in the air, cause it's time to! VERSE 1: His name is Ray Narvez Jr He is good as they get He's got a massive gamer score But he worked hard to get it YOLO, am I right? He's a catchphrase machine So good at playing games it's just a bit obscene Not gonna lie, he's a head hunting pro Got his squeaky flipping chair like his very own studio Lived in a crappy New York house In a crappy New York street Moved to Austin cause there's way more good food there to eat CHORUS: This time we're going all the way [hey!] Yeah, yeah he am here to stay Let's Play [Let's play] And waste these days away With the brownest of all men! VERSE 2: L. L. Let's play Got a Jr in his name Making weird pop references In every single game Everything he touches Turns to Achievement Hunter gold It's kinda like the Midas touch Like the legend had foretold He is X-Ray, man, you got to see his pose Standing next to the guy with the 6 o'clock Nose Nah, making jokes is his primary goal And for the last few years he has been on a roll BRIDGE: FPS, COD. Kicking ass in teams of 3 Quick remarks, clever lines Hanging out with all the guys Does his job, does it well Achievement hunting can be swell 10 of 10, completely done Giving shout outs to his mum Visual jokes, sexist names Doing Let's Plays in stupid games Versus Champ, Tower Of Pimps Going cakeless cause he's no whimp
VERSE 1: Explosions off in the distance Friendships that peak our interest Blood is thicker than a cup of this Riot punch A mandate to man date when push comes to violent shove CHORUS 1: Every single day they find another thing to tease And every single day they find another thing they need VERSE 2: Emotion they can't explain it Commotion, you won't retain it CHORUS 2: Playing games and calling names to keep it so routine Using words that sound like sounds explain just what you mean Separate people separate countries bring them closer now Entertain the masses but they never take a bow BRIDGE: Team Nice Dynamite Michael & Gavin You're my boy
X-Ray & Vav 03:03
VERSE 1: In the deepest darkest regions Of the deepest darkest cave You can find a super duo Trying to find someone to save Vav & X-Ray costumes are hanging in the wings Waiting for a reason to don their super things VERSE 2: In the tighest brightest costumes In this lovely Texas state You can find our super duo Just about to take the stage [AWAY] RTX is starting they better get there quick Looking at their package, they make each other sick CHORUS: Ladies please, try to contain yourselves They may be heroes, but they are just still themselves BRIDGE: On, and on The lines go On, and on and on and on... And maybe they can save us Cause our boredom was ours all along C'mon boys, show us the ropes
The Mad King 02:58
VERSE 1: Madman, crazy, call me insane I've got brilliant ideas bouncing round my brain They impune my honour and they say my name "He's the mad king" is what they say Well they're pretty spot on They're pretty much right Keeping friends so close keeping things up tight But I'm not mad, no I'm so sane It's the rest of the world that's off its chain CHORUS: He's a bringer of comedy Repeated over every week He's a logical devotee Explaining things to Gavin Free I can barely remember when The lets play didn't in-clude him He's the maddest of all the kings But that became his trademark thing That became his trademark thing VERSE 2: When I am the king the whole game moves To weird requests to do with hooves And vague statements about things to do To gain a gold block or a bowl of stew Let me be clear, I deserve this crown Dug up miles of earth deep below the ground Spent a day or two cutting y'all down Speaking proper words, using verbs and nouns Let me be clear, I deserve this crown Up standing citizen in Achievement Town I live in Kung Foo house hanging out with a cow I'm the Mad King and I'm ruling now BRIDGE: If all the kings In all the land Could ever make him sane again His baby brain Would just kick in Cause Ryan's wants to ruin things
VERSE 1: I'm sorry Jack I couldn't write you a song I just don't know where you are going Or where you have come from You're good a Trials And Geoff makes fun of you When in Minecraft, you like building stairs And are impartial to some brew CHORUS: Change the catchphrase Change the man I'm sure understand Change of weather Change of plan You've seen it all first hand VERSE 2: I'm sorry Jack If this song seems kinda lame It's a series of connect thoughts From the corners of my brain
The Twins 02:35
Two of a kind, an ace up my sleeve Two separate people, with two separate needs A hot headed chick, an a cool headed bro Ones got an AI and the other one don't... The mission's success was compromised by Your impatient streak, as time passes by Your arrogant mind, you run off your mouth So take notes on this, my dear Agent South VERSE 1: Ever since, we were just kids People found ways to put us together Pulling strings, and other things Seems like we might be stuck with each other VERSE2: Certain things, division brings Teamwork between us will disappear You shoot me in the back, which is all that I feared CHORUS: There's no I in team, there's no me in us There's no one but me, no one you can trust There's no I in team, there's no me in us COUNTER CHORUS: It all goes South, when she opens her mouth Now it's up to North, to correct their course It all goes South, when she opens her mouth And it all goes west, though they try their best Now it's up to North, to correct their course If you're left for dead, just call for Tex instead COUNTER COUNTER CHORUS: Before I gave up on your life I need you so bad, I need you so so bad Before I put you in harms way I missed you so bad, and you should know that Brother you should know that
VERSE 1: Hey D...That's me. I'm the one in the green I can't fly a plane. I don't need to sleep You're smart...In way, if you want me to boast There's a heap of cool things that I can help my host Like what? Calculations on trajectory, probability, you get the best from me No less, cause I'm super analytical, a little critical, a little cold on occasion CHORUS: If we built it up they will tear it down If we give it up they will take it now If we built it, they will break it If we give it, they will take it away VERSE 2: Hey D...Logical to the Nth degree, a little piece of me Thinks about what we're doing And if maybe there is a shred of doubt Well then you'll hear me out about the Alpha and it's namesakes Sometimes I remember little things and sometimes Sigma brings it all back into the limelight I confess that I have more to me than what they all can see and maybe one day I will show them BRIDGE: Okay, quit the small talk, let me think this out Out loud and we'll figure this out Say what? Got an AI unit in the battle field Leveling the playing field, serving up my foes on a silver platter COUNTER CHORUS Sigma was the creativity and Gamma was deceit and Theta probably was it's childhood Omega's rage was so un-tameable. They've broken all the rules but our tests are showing all good
Yeah! Freelancer Agent Tex! Texas wants and Texas gets No second chances, and no regrets She'll beat your ass all black and blue And she'll never stop til she's through with you Thinking quick. Fighting hard Whether on the floor or in the yard She's just a shade of what she was Don't mention it, or else because Pain, will come down like a rain on you. If you think you hold your own think twice She's got her sights on you So run! Run until you can't run anymore Then beg, hope she sees your point of view Before she kicks your ass Advantage, Texas 3 on 1 but you're still alive Advantage, Texas Tell me about it, what does it feel like
VERSE: Hey rookie. Go the store and get elbow grease and head light fluid We need to tune the puma up (tune the warthog up) Why are we here? A cosmic accident or a divine plan? Why are we here? I don't know but it keeps me up at night CHORUS: We are, we are so miserable We've done this to ourselves And we'll do it all again VERSE 2: Hey rookie. Go guard the flag and pay attention to every detail We gotta run the tutorial (always run the tutorial) Why are we here? A cosmic accident or a divine plan? Why are we here? When we could be sitting pretty in a room with a view over there... BRIDGE: Hey rookies, you get along so well Standing at ease, talking 'bout intel and who you'll displease if you go and tell all your plans, also Tucker smells Hey rookies ,playing truth or dare Semi-slumber party with your female flair Lightish red is garish to you But it doesn't even matter if your name's Caboose C'mon!
CHORUS: Well it's kinda obvious to me Yeah, it's obvious, as plain as you can see Well it's kinda obvious to see That these words would only ever set you free Just say it, just say those words Don't keep me, hanging on! You suck! It's always been this way As long as I can remember It's always been you and me Inseparable, like the shore & sea Just say it, just say those words I need you to say it "I forget you" It's always been you the alpha remembered
VERSE 1: I am giving up on chasing ghosts All these memories are what haunt me most If I dig them up they will swallow me If I let them go I might finally be free VERSE 2: I am giving up on ever finding you It is all it seems that I can really do So statistically they say odds are up Though I always seem to rely on luck CHORUS: Don't beg, don't borrow, don't ever steal something you can get for free I can't cope without hope. Don't ever say something you can not repeat


"Live" acoustic versions of some of my RT/AH songs.
All songs were multi-tracked but only in one take.
This means I was able to pretend I was 4 separate people playing all at once whilst not defying the laws of physics.
Since it was "live" there are plenty of live elements (known as mistakes).
