"‘Menagerie’ is one of the best chipalbums of 2013, if not simply for the sheer variety and incredibly detailed tunes throughout the album." - Aydan Scott (ChipWIN Blog)
www.8bitx.com/chiptuneswin/aydan-appreciates-menagerie-by-halc-and-tuberz-mcgee/

"Each track is wholly unique and honestly, I feel the album would be weaker if all the songs followed a similar formula. It is that uniqueness that makes 'Menagerie' a great album." - Daimo Mac (Lost In the Music)

Track Name: Squidzilla
When he was younger, he told himself that he'd be better.
If he had fingers they'd have started to bleed.
When he was younger, he told himself that he'd be stronger.
But the people told him that he was just too weak.

And when he cried, he cried alone and in the corner.
Cause one day he knew that he'd make amends.
And when he tried, he knew he'd one day be a lawyer.
Cause he knew in heart that he'd never make any friends.

The squid thinks he's a monster,
Cause he does not look like you or me.
If we all grew out tentacles,
There'd be familiarity.

The squid thinks he's a monster,
Cause he does not talk like you or me,
Communication isn't easy,
When you don't speak Japanese.

They've said they're sorry, but in the end it's all their fault.
They're the catalyst of a creature all the same.
Their city's broken. And not just metaphorically so.
The squid dreams this scenario to his game.

And in the movies, there's always someone out of place.
But the squid's favourite movie is Godzilla.
But actually, he loves to read romantic novels.
It's not his fault he's portrayed as a killer.

The squid thinks he's a monster,
Cause he does not look like you or me.
If we all grew out tentacles,
There'd be familiarity.

The squid thinks he's a monster,
Cause he does not talk like you or me,
Communication isn't easy,
When you don't speak Japanese.

One day he's gonna be a killer,
One day he's gonna be a monster,
One day he's gonna be crazy,
So today we may as well treat him that way.
