    Step through the Eternal Doorway into the Vault Of Tomorrow with the Thingz from Long Beach, CA!

    From out of the swamps of imagination and to the farthest reaches of their animated universe, the Thingz travel through space and time and return with eleven slabs of garage punk rock n roll trash infected and inflected with alien mold spores, silicon-based life, soul-less automatons, misunderstood TB victims, disaffected cyborgs, hucksters and fog-shrouded charlatans, insect-human hybrids, ghosts of Stalingrad, poor fashion choices and nocturnal ramblings!

Track Name: Black Dust
Black Dust falling on the ground
Black Dust falling all around
Black Dust on the windowsill
Black Dust gonna make me ill

Exhaust from a factory
Burned out refinery
Dark cloud from beyond the grave
Waiting for a stagnant wave

Black Dust falling on the ground
Black Dust falling all around
Black Dust on the windowsill
Black Dust gonna make me ill

Mold spores from beyond the sky
Dark matter in your eyes
Last breath of a haunted town
Black as night and falling down

Black Dust on the windowsill
Black Dust gonna make me ill
Black Dust
Black Dust
Black Dust
Black Dust
Track Name: Vault of Tomorrow
Crawling through the Vault of Tomorrow
Tell you what I saw
I’m a silicon-based life form
Call me the Horta

No kill I . . .
In the Vault of Tomorrow, In the Vault of Tomorrow!

50,000 years of silence
Now I’m the only one
Tear apart my homeland,
You’ll never see the sun

No kill I . . .

Meet my mind with reason
Now you understand
I’m a silicon-based life form
This is my homeland

No kill I . . .
Track Name: Soul Mates
walk this world in every way
never meet the end of days
walk until i reach the sun
eternity is no fun

yeah we could have been soul mates
if you had a soul

sleep a night of endless black
contemplate things i lack
ride that highway to my doom
eternity in my room

yeah we could have been soul mates
if you had a soul

run away from hopeless fate
you don't deserve my hate
collapse into infinity
nothing here, there's only me

yeah we could have been soul mates
if you had a soul
Track Name: Mercy Brown
Mercy was a solemn site
Spectacle was not quite right
Dig the ground to quell the tongue
Phantom scream from silent lungs

No one lives here anymore
Hacking coughs and bed sores
Carrier has been laid low
Dig me up as friend not foe

Life is short and then we part
Stone face and broken heart
Bury your fears in the ground
No one here but Lena Brown
Track Name: Almost Real
Synthetic human, cyborg fate
Ancient hubris, modern hate

On a good day I can feel
Impressions have a vague appeal
On a good day I feel life-like, almost real

Nothing there, we’re still here
Ancient folly, modern fear

On a good day . . .

Meet your maker, who made whom?
Open doorway, empty room

On a good day . . .
Track Name: Gospel Swamp
Ride to the West, the ground will fail
Leave you stuck here, dead upon a rail

Whoa, nothing happens here
Whoa, laugh and disappear

Fires burn at night, canvas in the black
Shout under the moon, never going back

Whoa, now we sing and stomp
Whoa, on the Gospel Swamp

No one saw him leave, was he ever there?
Figure walks at night, specter of despair

Whoa, nothing happens here
Whoa, laugh and disappear
Whoa, now we sing and stomp
Whoa, on the Gospel Swamp

In the Gospel Swamp . . .
Track Name: Lotta Moth Action
Home was pleasant, to a point
Till we saw the eyes of red
Silver Bridge collapsed and then
46 of us were dead

Lotta Moth Action . . .

No love lost in ‘66
Pursuit upon black wings of death
Long time curse or madman’s dream?
Gasping, draw your final breath

Lotta Moth Action . . .

Visions haunt me, I can’t sleep
Don’t know what it was but then
Stranger things have happened here
The fog is thick, the line is thin

Lotta Moth Action . . .
Track Name: Life and Fate
Sing a song life, and sing a song of fate
Encircled by the fire, you forget to hate

See the falling stars, and see the crumbling walls
You made your last mistake, so now the curtain falls

Your house is falling down tonight
And you’ve lost the will to fight

Silence covers you, and so you close your eyes
And who’ll forgive you now, for believing lies

Your house is falling down tonight . . .

Stars rain down, night falls black
Gone to Hell, but now you’re back

See the falling stars, and see the crumbiling walls
You’ve made your last mistake, so now the curtain falls
Track Name: Good Trash, Bad Trash
Good trash, bad trash going down
Good trash, bad trash paint the town
Not a lot I wanna know
No place that I wanna go

Good trash, bad trash feet on fire
Good trash, bad trash falling higher
Everything’s wide open now
Everything that fate allows

Good trash, bad trash now I’m gone
Good trash, bad trash, sing my song
Searching for that blinding light
Out of time and out of sight
Track Name: White Pants
Saw her standing at the end of the bar
And he knew that he wouldn’t get far
Saw her standing at the end of the line
And he thought that she looked real fine

White Pants! White Pants!
Get out if you don’t wanna dance
White Pants! White Pants!
Come on, give me a chance
