Track Name: Ankylosaur
When I knew who to love
so long ago
when I knew who to love
Ankylosaur
I'd cover up my head
with a kitchen bowl
be like you, Ankylosaur.

And when I go to bed
just like before
dreams of you in my head
Ankylosaur
I'm gonna wake some day and
find you for sure
just you and me, Ankylosaur.

But everybody
wants to fight
so I'll just curl right down
plates against bites
until everybody
gets bored and goes
stronger alone, Ankylosaur.

When I knew who to love
so long ago
when I knew who to love
Ankylosaur
I'd cover up my head
with a kitchen bowl
be like you, Ankylosaur.

We're stronger alone,
Ankylosaur
We're stronger alone,
Ankylosaur
We're stronger alone,
Ankylosaur.
Track Name: Elasmosaurus
Lift your neck up
your head up
underneath the green
in the water
much farther
than you thought you could be.

Only water
water
breathing
birthing you
ocean that holds you
from where the sun shines through.

In slow motion
dark that holds you down.
Rocky belly
stay down, down down.

What a view hey?
Imagine
everything you'd see.
But you'll never
bones too tiny
never breach the deep.

In slow motion
dark that holds you down.
Rocky belly
stay down, down down.
Track Name: Diplodocus
Sturdy, I'm too strong, think myself's too big for you.
Feels like I leave you all small.
One's not big for two though, I'll hold up the sky for you
See I'll be your mountain, I am your mountain.

Things might fall down fast or try to start eating you
just normal-sized on your own.
I'll wrap myself round, part stone and part warm right through.
See I'll be your mountain too.

Lift up your eyes so your eyes are with my eyes too
we'll see everything in the world.
And when skies all die like we know that they're going to
still I'll be your mountain, I am your mountain.
Track Name: Ornithomimus
My skin and blood's made of the light around me
big circle eyes to catch the sun inside me
and when I'm full and safe and warm and ready
see how I run.

You you you you breath and we all might tumble
crepe-paper bones, so quickly all can crumble
so jump and grab the tiny time we have here
you'll run with me.

Race you to the top of night
race you to the end of our lives.

So just for now we're green and strong and bouncing
so eat it all the counter's always counting
so jump and grab the tiny time we have here
you'll run with me.

Race you to the top of night
race you to the end of our lives.

My skin and blood's made of the light around me
big circle eyes to catch the sun inside me
and when I'm full and safe and warm and ready
see how I run.
