Track Name: What Mary Didn't Know
CHORUS
What Mary Didn’t Know
What Mary didn’t know
Didn’t know, she did not know
She was a little girl
In a black and white world
She didn’t know, didn’t know

Mary took a look inside of my head
Saw me looking at the color red
Saw how my eyes worked, how they linked to my brain
Yeah she could see it but was it the same?

Mary’d never seen color herself
Just read descriptions in her books on the shelf
Thought she knew all about the ways that we see
But was it the same for me?

CHORUS

Mary sweet thing didn’t realize
The world around her yeah, with her own eyes
Was there more to sight than words could tell?
She could explain it very well

CHORUS

One day Mary left her room behind
Opened her eyes and opened her mind
And she was shocked by the things that she saw
The world of color well it left her in awe
Mary, Mary with your jaw on the floor
Mary, Mary thought you knew it all, knew it all

CHORUS
Track Name: Time's Real
They tell me time is an illusion but I’ll never let it go
Stuck in this delusion but i’ll try to take it slow
To organize the world the way it has to be
the framework of my insides I let go and let it be

CHORUS
Time’s Real
You know how it feels
(Time’s real)
But what does it mean?
(Time’s real)
The way that it seems.

I trained myself to feel by the ticking of the clock
Tick tock tick tock and it never stops
And when I'm walking with you right before my knees collapse
It feels a frozen moment don't know how time has elapsed

It used to take me hours just to do a simple task
Everlasting showers spending days long in the bath
I couldn't count the minutes 1 to 2 or 33
Rock operas on the toilet, relax and let it be.

CHORUS
Time’s Real
You know how it feels
(Time’s real)
But what does it mean?
(Time’s real)
The way that it seems.

BRIDGE
And when I’m with you time goes fast
Clock telling me time has passed
How to make this moment last?
“Do you have the time?” You asked.

CHORUS
Time’s Real
You know how it feels
(Time’s real)
But what does it mean?
(Time’s real)
The way that it seems.
Track Name: Mind Body Problem
Got my mind on your body and your body on my mind.
It's a mind-body problem will we solve it in time?
And everybody, thinks that you're fine. But I know there's a problem, press your body to mine.
Ooo Oo
Press your body to mine
Ooo Oo
Press your body to mine

I don’t know nothin' bout the heart and the soul
The mind and body and what we control
And can’t help it well my mind knows it true
My body’s calling when I’m next to you
(It’s sayin')
Ooo Oo
When I’m next to you it’s sayin'
Ooo Oo
When I’m next you

All these ideas of you inside of my head.
Not even touching you just thinking instead.
All these ideas of you my body don’t know.
But it responds as if it knew them before.
It's sayin'
Ooo Oo
As if it knew
It's sayin Ooo Oo
Just like it knew it's sayin
Ooo Oo as if it knew
It's sayin Ooo Oo
When I'm next to you
Mind Body Problem can we solve it in time?
Mind Body Problem, now won’t you be mine?
Mind Body Problem can we solve it in time?
Mind Body Problem, won’t you be mine?
Won’t you be mine?
Track Name: Chinese Room
Somebody locked me in a room
Chinese messages comin’ through
I had to respond, but did not understand
So I just followed a list of commands

CHORUS
I’m living in a Chinese room
I’m speaking Chinese to you
I’m living a Chinese room
(But) What it means, I GOT NO CLUE! (HEY!)

I’m following a set of rules
That tell me which Chinese symbols to use
They’re talking to me, they’re speaking Chinese
And they think I understand what it means!

CHORUS
I’m living in a Chinese room
I’m speaking Chinese to you
I’m living a Chinese room
(But) What it means, I GOT NO CLUE! (HEY!)

And I think I fooled them all
That I’m a native chinese speaker and all
Did my best, passed the Turing Test
Gave the proper response to every request

CHORUS
I’m living in a Chinese room
I’m speaking Chinese to you
I’m living a Chinese room
(But) What it means, I GOT NO CLUE! (HEY!)
Track Name: Forever Young
Mr. Kurzweil please stay for a while.
Singularity's near, we're only watching the clock.
Hoping for the best but expecting robots
Are they gonna kill us all or not?
Don't let me die young I want to live forever
My body is fragile so replace it with metal.
Living as a cyborg, I'll be on a God-trip
It's all about transcendence.

Our bodies and computers will be as one
Superintelligence will be such fun!
Thanks to our leader we'll always be new
with brains wired to self improve.

Forever young
I want to be forever young.
With Ray I want to live forever
Forever, and ever.
Forever young
I want to be forever young
Yes I really want to live forever
Forever young.

Some are just downers, some refuse to see
Some won't transcend their biology.
Sooner or later they all will be gone
While my guy stays young.
It's so hard to get old, I'd rather not
I'll never perish with my nanobots
Me and Ray we're enlightened ones
And we'll evolve together.

Uploading our consciousness before death
Saved in the cloud to be born again.
So many dreams comin' out of the blue
They all will come true!

Forever young
I want to be forever young.
With Ray I'm gonna live forever
Forever, and ever.
Forever young
I want to be forever young.
Yes I really want to live forever
Forever, and ever.
Forever young
I want to be forever young!
I'm gonna sing this song forever!
Track Name: Sensual (Feat. David Chalmers & Baba Brinkman)
There ain’t nothin in the mind, which ain’t been in the sensations
let me take you on a sensation vacation
Through sense experience, the mind is created
As well as rules to process raw. sense. Data.

For Empiricists, yeah this is the word
Tabula Rasa, a blank slate to the world
When we are born there are no thoughts in our mind
But through experience, they’re built up over time

CHORUS
It’s all sensual
{sensual, sensual}
it’s all sensual

But for the Rationalists who do believe
That the precious senses only deceive
They say the source of truth about the world outside
Is human reason, inside your mind.

Must not succumb (un-uh) to sensual seduction
Must overcome (yeah) through rational deduction
Locked up in logic in the search for what’s real
Cut off from their senses, they forget how to feel.

CHORUS
They say it’s not sensual
Try to deny the sensual
(And say it’s all rational)

You say “I think, therefore I exist”
The one and only certain truth you insist
Distrust your senses, all you know to be true
Is thatcha can’t deny the thinking mind, of me and of you.

is it really all so sensual?
is it really all sensual?
is it really all sensual?
is it really all sensual?

Can you justify? (your beliefs)
Can you testify? To the sensory?
Can you justify? (your beliefs)
Can you testify? To the sensory?

BABA BRINKMAN’S VERSE
Hey, Rationalism is on top.
'Cause lately Empiricism has gone Pop.
There ain't no Tabula Rasa, John Locke,
Better check your senses against logic, non-stop.
No conspiracy, lyrically, I empirically expose the heresy in Empiricism fearlessly.
It's mathematical, not magical.
Radical sense data on its own is just not rational.
Ask a developmental psychologist.
Descartes was right, we have innate knowledges.
Not Platonic forms like Plato thought it was.
Darwin explains how they became part of us.
The brain is too complicated for Blank-Slatists, organized in advance of experience, baby.
And that's a priori, so a posteriori can kiss my posterior, alright?

Some things the senses cannot perceive.
Sometimes reason can not take you where it’s trying to lead.
They both have limits baby soon you will see
How it all comes down to somewhere in between

CHORUS
