  • Sevens (Theme Song)

    There were seven brides for seven brothers
    Seven wonders, seven sins
    Seven dwarfs, maybe others
    Seven seas and continents
    Seven colors in the rainbow
    Seven words you can not say
    Seven seals and seven chakras
    Seven minnow castaways

    There were seven swans and seven sages
    Seven pools and seven pearls
    Seven sorrows, seven ages
    Seven days to make the world
    Seven causes, seven metals
    Seven notes to make the scales
    Seven Buddhas, seven petals
    Seven virtues, Seven veils

    They say that
    Three is a magic number
    I’ve heard before
    They know for sure
    I say if three is a magic number
    Seven’s more
    More by four

    There were seven loaves and seven faces
    Seven gates and seven hints
    Seven hills and seven races
    Seven joys and sacraments
    Seven virgins, seven senses
    Seven ways to die in clue
    Seven ways to roll a seven
    None of those are really true

    Three is a magic number
    Those keeping score
    They know for sure
    I say if three is a magic number
    Seven’s more
    More by four

    There are seven way to get on base
    Seven final sayings
    Seven years of bad luck
    Seven things you recognize
    Seven daggers, seven churches
    Seven summits, seven foods
    Seven blessings, seven trumpets
    Seven samurai

    There were seven sins and seven wonders
    Seven dwarfs and days to mourn
    Seven planets, seven heavens
    Seven sections in this song


  • Dwarfs Theme Song (Woman on the Table)

    Come home late, work all day
    Woman on the table
    Cups and plates pushed away
    Woman on the table
    Don’t know how it coulda come to pass
    Still as stone in a box of glass
    Gotta wonder if it’s gonna last
    Woman on the table

    No one here knows her name
    Woman on the table
    Don’t know why or when she came
    Woman on the table
    Don’t know if she is a wicked witch
    Ain’t a thing thats gonna make us rich
    Doc says he never even seen her twitch
    Woman on the table

    Oh, Oh, Oh
    Oh, Oh, Oh
    Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho
    Heigh Ho

    Come home late, what you see
    Woman on the table
    Kind of strange scenery
    Woman on the table
    How we ever ’sposed to fold our clothes
    Sit and wait for her to decompose
    Gotta break at least a hundred codes
    Woman on the table

    Oh, Oh, Oh
    Oh, Oh, Oh
    Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho
    Heigh Ho

    You try so hard to make a house a home
    A place that seven men can live alone
    Everybody gets a chair and bed
    Tryn’ to minimize the overhead
    Where the hell are we supposed to dine
    When the table’s got a princess shrine
    How ya gonna sing a happy tune
    When there’s a coffin in the living room

    Better keep that candle lit
    Woman on the table
    Might not get used to it
    Woman on the table
    Skin like powder such a scary sight
    Hair so black but her face so white
    No one gettin’ any sleep tonight
    Woman on the table

    Heigh Ho
    Heigh Ho
    Heigh Ho



  • Gluttony (All You Can Eat)

    Moments like these I forget I’m a delicate flower
    Challenged by choices and charged by the pound or the hour
    How many people will stand in my way
    Don't want to keep any demons at bay
    Life's not fine dining it's more just an endless buffet
    And I love a buffet

    Sometime I feel like I’m wasting away by the minute
    I see the mirror but don’t really think that’s me in it
    Don't wanna play with the hand that I'm dealt
    Best way to handle those feelings I felt
    Is to tighten my grip and to loosen my belt
    Waiting in line
    Reading the sign

    It said all you can eat
    So I ate all that I could
    I really don’t remember seeing a warning
    Now I fill out my clothes
    Because I filled up my hole
    And I’ll be testing my blood in the morning
    I saw my life go flashing by on a plate
    I think it might have been too little, too late
    Maybe it was something I ate
    ‘Cause now I can’t find my feet
    But it said all you can eat

    Now and again I’m aware that I might be complaining
    Faced with a face and a body that’s waxing and waning
    I know what’s learned and what’s bred in the bones
    All the concern with the bread and the scones
    Nobody sees the less flattering zones
    And I’m pushing down what I feel
    To get a happier meal

    The sign said all you can eat
    So I ate all that I could
    Although I pushed all the greens to the corners
    And now I have to admit
    That I’m a long way from fit
    And I’ve been making a list of the mourners
    Every smorgasbord is the same
    And you know I ain’t annoyed or ashamed
    But there’s a barbeque that’s calling my name
    And I can hear the mesquite
    It’s saying all you can eat

    And my extremities are starting to tingle
    I can feel it in my finger and toes
    Everybody here appears to be single
    And they’re letting out clothes
    So my complexion is increasingly pallid
    And I should be coming up for some air
    But there was bacon between me and the salad
    Over there, Is that fair

    It said all you can eat
    So I ate all that I could
    And I’m afraid I never counted the dishes
    And now I’m saying a prayer
    To the enabler up there
    But I’m craving the loaves and the fishes
    And they say chicken soup is good for the soul
    And they say keep the diet under control
    But there was chocolate overflowing a bowl
    A waterfall of defeat
    And I just couldn’t retreat
    You know it really looked sweet
    And it said all you can eat


  • Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (When You Talk About Me)

    I will build a testament
    To last a thousand years
    You will be beside me
    For eternity
    We will move through marble
    With the worries of the wind
    For the promise, for the people
    For posterity

    I will build a story book
    To document our lives
    Made of sacred stone
    And solidarity
    We will move a mountain
    While the world is rushing by
    For the fable, for the future
    For the family

    And when you talk about me
    If you talk about me
    Tell them that I loved you more each day
    Centuries will pass and we will stay
    Monuments will rise and fall
    Carve our stories in the wall
    Tell them there was something here to see
    When you talk about me

    I will build a history
    For after we are gone
    Pieces of our past
    Will keep our memory
    We will have a tale to tell
    In everything to come
    Of our love, our believers
    Of our legacy

    And when you talk about me
    If you talk about me
    Tell them I was honoring our love
    Tell them that one world was not enough
    Memories will start to fade
    We’ll remain in what we made
    Tell them there was something here to see
    When you talk about me

    And if the oceans start to drain
    If the deserts fall to rain
    We will be revered in all this glory
    And when the empire turns to dust
    As every empire must
    Our stones will still remain here with our story

    I will build a testament
    To last a thousand years
    You will be beside me
    For eternity
    Statues fail and turn to sand
    We will rise above the land
    There will still be something here to see
    When you talk about me



  • Grumpy (We're All Playing Dodgeball Again)

    It’s run like a schoolyard
    Decisions made quick
    That initial impression
    Is sure gonna stick
    I don’t care if I’m first
    I just want to be picked
    ‘Cause I know scars like these never fade

    And it only gets worse
    When they call you by name
    Thought I’d left this behind
    But it’s seems I’m fair game
    Keep my head down, keep distance
    It’s more of the same
    And I dive on another grenade

    So you peek through your fingers
    Think when will this end
    And you yell out in anger
    Or sell out a friend
    There’s a line in the sand you could never defend
    And we’re all playing dodgeball again

    It’s unfolding before me
    This line of attack
    And the only defense
    Might be turning my back
    Though it’s seems like there’s time
    I’m too slow to react
    And I’m acting so numb and naive
    So I stumble, I bob, and I weave

    So you peek through your fingers
    Think when will this end
    And you’re underprepared
    So you overextend
    And you know they won’t break, so you learn how to bend
    ‘Cause we’re all playing dodgeball again

    And I’m not the fastest or fiercest
    And I’ve got the weakness in me
    I’m not the smartest or bravest
    Hey, stop me if you disagree
    The strong and the pretty
    Don’t rule be committee
    No purpose or pity at all
    So I curl up and make myself small
    And prepare to be hit by the ball

    With the times getting tougher
    The tough do just fine
    And this rising and falling
    Is all by design
    So you crawl serpentine
    Put your toes on the line
    Holding steady, I’m ready to go
    And I wait for the whistle to blow

    So you peek through your fingers
    Think when will this end
    Just a sip of the poison
    You’re own special blend
    If you can’t hit the wall, then you better pretend
    And we’re all playing dodgeball again

    So you peek through your fingers
    Think when will this

    end
    Taking one for the team
    Has it’s own dividend
    It’s your personal stoning, you have to attend
    And we’re all playing dodgeball again


  • Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

    Your father was a true believer
    Evenings on his knees
    He fought through all the sins he could
    They were his true disease
    And he never said a word about
    The ways he thought he’d burn
    The building might be crumbling
    So why do you return

    You grew up with a handsome face
    Another act of God
    Your father brought you back
    And saw the cracks in the facade
    He never really rallied
    Questioned motives, answered prayers
    The measure of the man
    Is in the way that he prepares

    When you see through the distractions
    When all the walls come down
    Are you glad someone hung in there
    That faith was still around
    No one knows what it’s like to die
    Who gets lost or found
    You never know what’s on the other side
    When all the walls come down

    Where do you go to pray these days
    Now your temple’s out of reach
    The proselytizers line the way
    But all they do is preach
    No one taught you anything
    About the ways of men
    The building might be crumbling
    But you go back again

    When you see through the distractions
    When all the walls come down
    When the men of war who saw it all
    Are startled by the sound
    Maybe that’s the lesson learned
    When you go to ground
    You never know what’s on the other side
    When all the walls come down

    And so the fire comes and takes the air away
    And so the battle lines turn inward like the flame
    When the smoke has cleared and nothing else remains
    What kind of man would burn it down to make his name

    Your father was a true believer
    That was his mistake
    He grew up with an angry God
    Who took what he could take
    It doesn’t take a fool to see
    The lengths he went to live
    But the measure of the man might be
    The things that you forgive

    When you see through the distractions
    When all the walls come down
    When the family and the fervor
    And the faith could be unbound
    You stole away with pieces
    Of your father’s broken crown
    You never know what’s on the other side
    When all the walls come down


  • Wrath (Jesus Saw You Coming)

    You watch the news, it only gets worse
    Taking the views no one can swallow
    You pick and choose the chapter and verse
    Don’t want to lose anyone who might follow

    And you believe in your beliefs
    That makes it much more frightening
    You say that some will see your light
    But all need some enlightening
    And the big plane gets you higher
    So the prayers will all get through
    And they believe in you, they believe in you

    Jesus saw you coming
    So he quickly hid his face
    He didn’t want you thinking
    You were welcome in this place
    Here’s someone who understands
    The terror in your eyes
    Jesus saw you coming
    You’re in for a surprise

    You read the book, but not every page
    Taking a look, at what is persuasive
    And then you took a bit of the rage
    Turned it into something invasive

    And you believe in your beliefs
    Which amplifies the tension
    You say that everyone has sinned
    You’re here to help with their ascension
    And you pass the plate to build a place
    That God can really see
    From sea to holy see, the holy see

    Jesus saw you coming
    And he said a little prayer
    For all the folks who followed you
    But would not make it there
    I’m pretty sure he heard you say
    That everybody lies
    Jesus saw you coming
    You’re in for a surprise

    How far do you think that you can go to sell redemption
    How much do you need to shear the flock
    Just a little tithing for the real estate and pension
    And you get to be the big church on the block

    You’re eyes get small, it’s gonna get worse
    After all, there’s more you can pilfer
    You don’t recall your chapter and verse
    Who took the fall and ended up with the silver
    And you just know that there’s a God
    ‘Cause all the stuff you got through prayer
    And he’ll be waiting there, we’ll be waiting there

    Jesus saw you coming
    And he thought it was a joke
    The cloud you had your eye on
    Was just a puff of smoke
    And he knows where you are going
    You can almost hear the cries
    Jesus saw you coming
    You’re in for a surprise
    We’ll gather at the gates
    Where we can say our last goodbyes
    Jesus saw you coming
    You’re in for a surprise
