lyrics

~ Drifting Off ~
Though he was quite exhausted after yet another difficult day at work, Chad laid down on his well-worn but comfy couch, fighting the descent into dream world. He had always resisted drifting off because he worried that he might miss something while he slept. However, sleep came quickly as he melted into the cushions.
Very soon he awoke and went outside into the hot, dry desert air. Waiting there for Chad was his older brother Todd. Something was strange. Todd was carrying a very large musical instrument over his shoulder, and was surrounded by a sizable crowd.
“What’s that you’re carrying?”, Chad asked his brother.
Todd replied, “It’s a special double bass. It’s on loan from the Pig Mammoths. Well, actually, they don’t know that I have it, but it will be nice to use this one to practice on while we’re in Reptilia. I’ll bring it back to them later.” Todd showed him that this bass had an extension on the lowest string, to allow him to play even lower notes on this already low, earthy-sounding instrument!
Though Todd’s response only caused more confusion, Chad then noticed that it wasn’t a crowd of people behind Todd at all! In fact, they resembled lizards standing upright on two feet, like people, but with tails, colorful scales, and long alligator-shaped heads. Staring wide eyed at his brother, Chad asked “Who are, what are, ah, who are they?”
Todd replied, “We’re in Reptilia, Little Brotha. Haven’t you been paying attention?”
Chad’s attention was diverted before he was able to ask any more questions. Suddenly, the Reptilians began to scatter in every direction. Looking up, they noticed that a vortex of dark colored clouds had formed directly above their heads. Along the horizon in the distance, Chad and Todd saw a large herd of unusual creatures approaching them. Todd squinted to try to focus and identify the oncoming mass.
