Track Name: Snails
We could leave today
Pack our bags and run away
Go somewhere we've never been

Hope that we get lost
That's exactly what we want
Throw our caution to the wind

Oh, what if it rains?
Oh, but then again...

We're just two snails who left our shells for the day
For the day
We're just two snails who left our shells for the day
For the day

No insecurities
We've got no one left to please
And nothing left to hide

And with no guarantees
We could fail so miserably
But at least we'll say that we tried

Oh, I'm so afraid...
Oh, but then again...

We're just two snails who left our shells for the day
For the day
We're just two snails who left our shells for the day
For the day

And so we'll take it slow
We'll learn to let everything go
But our balloons we'll hold on tight

And if anybody asks
They're just living life too fast
And they can go fly a kite

Oh, it's the end of the day...
But we'll do it again!

We're just two snails who left our shells for the day
For the day
We're just two snails who left our shells for the day
For the day

For a day
Track Name: Crickets
I am safe, inside my cage
Free from fear and free from hate
But I like you, and I'll let you in
And you'll never be lonely again

You don't bug me one bit
I'm as happy as a cricket
You don't bug me one bit
I'm as happy as a cricket

You can wish upon a star
If your luck won't take you far
And you might leave the kettle on the hearth
But I won't forget who you are

You don't bug me one bit
I'm as happy as a cricket
You don't bug me one bit
I'm as happy as a cricket

And I, I'll be your conscience
If you really want it
I, I'll be your conscience
If you really want it

You don't bug me one bit
I'm as happy as a cricket
You don't bug me one bit
I'm as happy as a cricket
Track Name: Moths
You are my flame
I've been trying, I've been trying
To explain your empty drawer

But the sound of moths is starting to get me
Track Name: Ladybugs
I met a girl with a red and black parasol
We fell in love in the fall
'Cause today, today, today
My wishes flew away with a ladybird
My wishes flew away with a ladybird
Ladybird

She fled my room, while I was mending shoes
And flew away home, though she said she'd be back soon
And someday, someday, someday
I will fly away with my ladybird
I will fly away with my ladybird
Ladybird

La da da!
Ladada! Ladada!
Dadum!
Track Name: Grasshoppers
I haven't got strong femora, or compound eyes
But I'll give you love of the highest order
Until the day I die

Grasshoppers fly
So why can't we?
If we try hard enough?
Grasshoppers fly
So why can't we?
If we try hard enough?

It can't be that tough.

If I had a set of antennae, they probably wouldn't be very long
But I'll always treat you right
No I could never treat you wrong

Grasshoppers fly
So why can't we?
If we try hard enough?
Grasshoppers fly
So why can't we?
If we try hard enough?

It can't be that tough.

So we'll make music with my tympanal organ - we'll write a bunch of tunes
I just hope that I'm not too boring
Because I'm not into bugs like you

Grasshoppers fly
So why can't we?
If we try hard enough?
Grasshoppers fly
So why can't we?
If we try hard enough?

It can't be that tough.
