MEGAGLIMMER ISLAND VIDCRUSH Oblong hills past the sky-blue sea Zoom back past the pastel boarders Through the city's rounded corners Focus through the roof Of the jet-pack factory My customized eye test is done But I'm still locked on someone How I long to hop from this tower Through the roof to her arms We can leave this Booming bustling Hardhat gizmo glimmer town Fall in love in Marigolds Express our hearts in text-windows But I cannot I was built for a purpose As the evil army marches in I'll think of her in my top notch save slot As the battle rounds begin Through the roof amid worried workers Her and I hop away Run around the endless scenes As the sunny background scrolls Swim in sunken towns with otters Under polygonal waters Time our jumps from fish to fish Leaping from bottomless holes Slide past winking clouds on pretty Rainbows far form Glimmer City Where all cheer for my unveiled statue As the victory flag waves I'll strain to hear her familiar heartbeat Through the fireworks display I'll hold hopes for her embraces As long as the hills have faces

MY CONTROL PAD Beekeepers Would grin in their masks and Their honeybees would carry me UP to his steel hands UP and we’d jump through the cool August sky The world was the view seen by diving red barons and I Knew what it did when I opened up the box lid Didn’t even plug it in to play Soon DOWN the gravelly road I’d run Knowing by the pond was a waiting someone And that beekeepers Would grin in their masks and Honeybees would carry me into his waiting hands DOWN and we’d bound over grass growing high And leap over fences that spread out for acres and I wish I still had that control pad I wish I still had that control pad LEFT and he went RIGHT And he went LEFT if you moved RIGHT That way if someone stole it they could never understand Sometimes I’d confuse it for the other one but use it Sometimes I would say that I could just say my command And the beekeepers Would grin in their masks and Honeybees would carry me into his waiting hands B and his three mini missiles would fly And pop on the fence posts and scatter the hornets and Sometimes I still used it for its factory made function Didn’t want to see the Blue Max crash or give Bub a concussion And it always worked despite the sight of mud and grass stains clinging tight And a sticker so you’d know if he was friend or he was foe Beekeepers Would grin in their masks and Honeybees would carry me into his waiting hands A and we’d wave as balloonists blew by And swat at mosquitoes that came out at twilight Beekeepers Would grin in their masks and Honeybees would carry me into his waiting hands START and his heart and the lights in his eyes Would rev up so strong now those summers are gone and I wish I still had that control pad.

We Are Born 02:18
WE ARE BORN We are born And we wait For the world to show us Something great Right away We’re immersed In a mad display Of color bursts Unabridged imagination Is the one tool we possess To provide an ascertation To this contradicting mess Where every Gumby is a Gumby until you see it by a T Rex And though Pillows make a fortress with a flashlight and some blankets Vitamins and Band-Aids cure all woes Scientists confirm its true Everything has gone awry Fairy tales have all come true All you own has come alive Want to survive? You must think back to a time When Han Solo walked on water With his daughter G.I. Joe And the part you keep repeating Is the most exciting scene Only grown ups care about the stuff That happens in between I want to go outside I want to go on a ride I want to feed my virtual pet I want to feed my virtual pet Hop into my car It’ll turn into a robot And we’ll shoot and never hit things With our too-big guns You’re invited to the wedding But the groom is wearing foil Lava monsters boil Under swingsets Scientists confirm its true Everything is as it was Fairy tales are at an end All you own is no longer your friend

Lazerbeak 01:45
LASERBEAK The tears the boy cried when his toy fell down and broke a wheel Were so intense his mother feared he thought his toys were real So she called the Hasbro offices, arranged to meet that week Where they showed the boy no toy is real Except for Lazerbeak

about

"In the distant past, one could travel to an "arcade" to play "arcade style video games" which cost one US quarter- 25 Cents. This collection of music by The Crazy Boy Floyds celebrates that time, and celebrates classic video games in general, and the nostalgia of childhood play - though at times it is unclear how."
