about

This is a children's album filled with empowering messages framed in a story of a child having to summon the courage to overcome a zombie outbreak.

credits

released October 22, 2015

This album was inspired by the strength of Benjamin Rollins, the children of Nicole Quinn who picked the theme of zombies, and Micah Shuff who is a big ball of joy and showed me that a child's joy is more than worth the effort.

Track Name: The Challenge
If you're listening to this, that means that it all went wrong. We were able to contain the infection at first. Even able to study it.
My name is Dr. K Barrata Niktu and if you do as I say there may still be hope.
The most important thing that we know is that adolescents are immune to the effects. This means that, tho you are likely quite young, you are our only hope to cure the outbreak and save us all.

Spitting truth and vermouth
In the booth
To give to the youth and keep
sharp as a shark tooth
Fighting to the top but just because the roof has a beautiful view
Ruthless but true to a few
Who inject everything that they do
With the effort of Sisyphean Atlas last breath pedal backwards never a last word
Take it back just a little
See you trapped in the middle
Of a task and a riddle
With a trap in the rearview
You taking lead is
something experimental
Time to flash a smile show your diamond cutter dentals
Monsters in the way but you've gotta blast right thru
Stand tall to obstacles and anything that fights you
Spent a lot of time
Wondering what you might do
It's time to take the chance
And find out what's inside you

Follow this map and stay hidden en route. While you can not be changed, the infected seem to have developed a sort of hive mind that has them focused on infecting those they can and enslaving the others.
Production began on a treatment but I don't know the volume made. Reach the factory and avoid capture, you must find it.

Gather your confidence
compose your shoulders
Before you head out in this war zone a soldier
Armed with no weaponry but wits, will and your everything
That's what you need
To save the world and get revelry
Hold your hand steadily
Always respond readily
If you get unsure
Sing yourself this melody
There is nothing too large
There is nothing too high
There is nothing too hard
That you can't even try
There is nothing too large
There is nothing too high
There is nothing too hard
That you can't even try
Never back down with your heart on your side
Always give your all
Never say die
There is nothing too large
There is nothing too high
There is nothing too hard
That you can't even try
Never back down with your heart on your side
Always give your all
Never say die

I fear we've not much time. You must begin following these directions now or all will be lost. You must be brave. You must believe you can succeed. You are the only hope.
Track Name: Focus
Excellent job. You've come in range of communication. You should be very proud of yourself. I know I'm impressed.

X2
I think you're safe
I think you made it
I think you're safe
You're alright you're okay
Keep your head down
You really gotta lay low
You know what they want
But you're ready to go

Rally yourself like no troops needed
Like you can keep the whole home team undefeated
The perfect season for seething with the drive of a demon
Deal in absolutes: morals, convictions, and reason
You see it's simple but it's far from easy
Thru all the scarring and bleeding keep believing and breathing
Your heart is still beating so you've still got hope
Even if you can't see and you're at the end of your rope
No matter your size, you've got the power of a giant
It's not the vessel that you're in; it's the strength that's inside it
Side with the righteous
Touch like Midas
Everything goldie when you're fine with how your life is
You made it this far
there's no reason to turn back
All that's in the past is a slow fade to black
There's no safety in that and no certainty in the future
So focus on the present and perfecting your maneuvers

X2
I think you're safe
I think you made it
I think you're safe
You're alright you're okay
Keep your head down
You really gotta lay low
You know what they want
But you're ready to go

A glimpse of quiet calm
A shelter in the storm
Gotta keep moving to prevent a new norm
Everything is different
Everything is changing
But the future is yours
It's gonna be what you make it
So take the feelings of fear
get your head clear
use the nervous energy to keep enemies to the rear
You'd better be motivated to push yourself to the limits
Of living a life filled with a purpose
Of pure persistence
overcoming resistance
traveling any distance
disassemble destroy
And defeat the opposition
This is a mission
A challenge to stay driven
You'll find a solution
Can come from every decision
There's no one right way
Despite what they might say
Your life is your life and your path is the right way
Advice could lead you astray
Or be your saving grace
Listen to your instincts
Trust when it resonates

X2
I think you're safe
I think you made it
I think you're safe
I think

(Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu)

The infected are on their way to you. You must hurry. It is of the utmost importance that you bring to me the serum! The only hope to restore order is to bring to me the serum. Hurry!

(Hail Klaatu)
Track Name: Zombie Army
I see that you've found your stride. Surely realized that though the infected out number you you can make your way in ways that they can not. Alas, the infected do gravely outnumber you and have an unwavering allegiance to Klaatu. This is why, shortly, you will be over taken and brought with the last of the serum that chemically induces this infected state... To me... Dr Klaatu.

Clearing out my head
Turn my swagger on
Everyone looking dead
Like the venue when I been on
Clearing out my head
Turn my swagger on
Everyone looking dead
Everyone looking dead
All of em monsters
Got these zombies on me
Got these zombies on me
Like a zombie army
All of em monsters
Got these zombies on me
Got these zombies on me
Like a zombie army
(Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu!)

A dirty double cross
Throwing off all of the plans
Feels like they took all the
Power right out of your hands
Watch your footwork
This is a delicate dance
Gotta be light as a feather
Still sturdy in stance
Stick the trick in the past
Don't dally and dwell
It could take down the whole town
If you poison the well
They might have thrown you of course with that short cut
Take a minute take aim
Make sure it's sured up
Sho nuff
Keep kicking it off the cuff
Get a little scrappy show your savvy shoot em the scruff
Been a little bit since you were convinced it was a cinch
To slide right thru pull no punches and pop out of a pinch
Never lose your spark
Hit em with the bright eyes
Harder to lose life
when you leave it as it lies
Shoot for the skies
Shift the shame to the side
It's never on you
When they hit you with the blindside

Clearing out my head
Turn my swagger on
Everyone looking dead
Like the venue when I been on
Clearing out my head
Turn my swagger on
Everyone looking dead
Everyone looking dead
All of em monsters
Got these zombies on me
Got these zombies on me
Like a zombie army
All of em monsters
Got these zombies on me
Got these zombies on me
Like a zombie army
(Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu!)

You've got a burgeoning burden
But be assuredly certain
Serving your purpose
Is a perfect plan of action
Now to enact it full force forward like a Mac truck
Not even given back the source of the bad luck
Any evil that you do
Will be poison to you
Better to keep poise and destroy
The evil they do
Nobody else but to yourself
Stay faithful
Only let the motivation you know be what takes you
Never be led astray
The good inside you is great
Any advantage that they take
Will be a mistake
When you do what's right
The fact you must makes might
Because the focus you feel
Is a like a light so bright
It can't help but shine through
A fire inside you
Let it burn take your turn
Leave your passion unbridled
Never be tamed
But keep your motives the same
There are only cheap wins
When you cheat at the game

Clearing out my head
Turn my swagger on
Everyone looking dead
Like the venue when I been on
Clearing out my head
Turn my swagger on
Everyone looking dead
Everyone looking dead
All of em monsters
Got these zombies on me
Got these zombies on me
Like a zombie army
All of em monsters
Got these zombies on me
Got these zombies on me
Like a zombie army
(Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu! Hail Klaatu!)
Track Name: Triumph
There is absolutely nothing you can do. You have come to the end of your travels. Accept it. You've lost. You've played directly in to my hands and I will control the world!

There is nothing too large. There is nothing too high.
There is nothing too hard that you can't even try.
Never back down with your heart on your side.
Always give your all. Never say die.

Thinking that they got you stuck
They got the game messed up
You've got your confidence up
Even tho the times looking tough
they've been pushing you down
But now enough is enough
Because you know not to hold back
It's never too much
Got a little bit of fire on the tongue
Coming straight from the lung
And your pace on run
And your song unsung
But your still not done
Cause you'll never be
No matter how much they push
You're never gonna leave
Never be the one to give up when you could break free

There is nothing too large. There is nothing too high.
There is nothing too hard that you can't even try.
Never back down with your heart on your side.
Always give your all. Never say die.

Never back down
you could run this town
Respect no kings
Take no crowns
Never get caught by the zombies watching
Take the leader of the pack
Just say stop it
When you stand up for yourself
People get nervous
The source of their power
is you thinking you're worthless
But you know you're not
So you tied their plans in a knot
So you got reign over the spot
Like you got the key and the lock
So at the end of the day
You'll be standing on top
Remember all that you are
Stand up to the things that you're not

There is nothing too large. There is nothing too high.
There is nothing too hard that you can't even try.
Never back down with your heart on your side.
Always give your all. Never say die.
