Track Name: Captchalogue My Heart
C F C G
You have captchalogued my heart
C F G
And you just won't let it go
You've got it trapped inside your sylladex
with all the things that I want you to know

And your strife specibus is lovekind
So I can't bear to be apart
I wish that I could forget you but I can't
Cause you have captchalogued my heart

Am F C G
You've been having trouble with your fetch modus
But I think that I can help you out
Just set it to array and you will be okay
But it's harder for me to get my heart back now

I'd love for you to be my server player
When we get our betas of Sburb
And I'll hope it but I know it won't be fair
And we won't go back to the way we were

Cause you have captchalogued my heart
And you just won't let it go
You've got it trapped inside your sylladex
with all the things that I want you to know

And your strife specibus is lovekind
So I can't bear to be apart
I wish that I could forget you but I can't
Cause you have captchalogued my heart

And if you're time then I am space
We'll capture frogs all over the place
And strip the Black Queen of her ring
And work together in the battle against the Black King

You could say I'm homestuck
but that would be cheesy
I'm down on my luck
Getting out of here isn't easy

Just help me carve my totem
and I'll be on my way
Cause when we're both in the Medium
I'll be able to say

That you have captchalogued my heart
And you just won't let it go
You've got it trapped inside your sylladex
with all the things that I want you to know

And while we're here in the Incipisphere
I'll finally tell you how I feel
And although we might have won this game
I still don't know if you feel the same
Just give me my heart back
and I'll be okay
Track Name: Obsessive
C E7
My life is a series of obsessions
F Fm
I go from liking one thing to liking more
If you asked me a simple question
I'd go on and on and you'd get pretty bored

But it's not my fault that there are so many things
Out there to love and to admire
So let me have my tv shows and let me have my movies
And let me get obsessed sometimes

C F
And if you say the word I will tell you
C G
All about this thing I love and try to compel you

Am F C G
Watch this thing, watch it now
I don't think that you really know how
Much I love it, or maybe, well you do
I guess you don't have like it if you don't want to

My life has little meaning without culture
I jump from books to tv and then back again
My room is full of posters and my books are full of notes
And I can't understand why my friends don't get it

Why can't they see how beautiful it is
I respect the fact that you like reality TV
So why can't you just return the favor
And watch a little science fiction please

And if you say the word I will tell you
All about this thing I love and try to compel you

Read this thing, read it now
I don't think that you really know how
Much I love it, or maybe, well you do
I guess you don't have like it if you don't want to

And so I will keep on writing fanfic
Keep on drawing pictures and singing songs
These things mean the world to me, and it might be hard to see
But with imagination you can’t go wrong

From fashion to books to music to art
to shows to sports to games to movies
Obsessions are what makes me who I am right now
And they are what inspires me
Track Name: The Update Song
A#
You're sitting at your desk
Cmaj
Hitting refresh
F Dm
Over and over and over

You should go to bed
You need to rest
But time seems to be passing slower

You can't seem to find
Any peace of mind
In the light of your computer screen

It's two-thirty AM
And you wonder when
you're ever going to sleep

It's been twenty-four hours since the last page
How much longer will we have to wait

F
For the update
Dm
Who's gonna die
A# Cmaj
What alien kid is gonna make you cry

How will a comic make you broken-hearted
And how many shipping wars will get started
What headcanons will be dismantled
And will the fandom be able to handle
What Andrew Hussie will create
With the next update

And then your heart sinks
When there's no unclicked links
You just want to know what happens next

So to a new tab you switch
To get your fanfiction fix
And read about teen alien sex

But suddenly
Your notifier beeps
You click over and begin to read

You scan the page
And fall into a daze
This one'll bring the fandom to its knees

Three new panels and a pesterlog
Everyone stands still in shock and awe

At the update
Who's gonna die
What alien kid is gonna make you cry
How will a comic make you broken-hearted
And how many shipping wars will get started
What headcanons will be dismantled
And will the fandom be able to handle
What Andrew Hussie will create
With the next update

Within five minute's there's fanart
And after ten the arguments start
At fifteen you get the cosplayers
And at twenty everybody's like it's not fair

But after a while things start to dissipate
Peoples' ships are sunk and it's a bit too late
To argue about what's canon now
Cause no one really understands it anyhow
And all there's left to do is wait

For the next update
Track Name: The Town of Gravity Falls
D F
Ever since we got here
C
To this sleepy town in Oregon
We’ve been suspicious
There’s something creepy going on

My brother found a book
and you won’t guess what’s inside
Pages and pages of the strangest things,
it’s some sort of guide

G D
to the place where we’re spending our summer
G A
And I can’t wait to discover

D F C
The magic mysteries of Gravity Falls
G A
We’ve already had some close calls
F A#
With monsters, tricks, and magic, illusions so fantastic
F A
Each week we get back at it, with new questions
F
No matter what we do
A#
I’ll know that there is more to
A D
the town of Gravity Falls!

The citizens and tourists
Seem to be unaware
Of all the crazy weirdo stuff
that tends to happen here

But my brother and I are determined
To get to the bottom of all this
With all our adventures we keep stumbling into
Clues that we just can’t miss

And I hope by the time this summer ends
I’ve made a whole lot of new friends and figured out

The magic mysteries of Gravity Falls
We’ve already had some close calls
With monsters, tricks, and magic, illusions so fantastic
Each week we get back at it, with new questions
No matter what we do
I’ll know that there is more to
the town of Gravity Falls!


I hope we make some sense
Of these bizarre events
Before the summer’s done

And everyone we meet
Is not quite what they seem
But at least we’re having lots of fun with

The magic mysteries of Gravity Falls
We’ve already had some close calls
With monsters, tricks, and magic, illusions so fantastic
Each week we get back at it, with new questions
No matter what we do
I’ll know that there is more to
this town of Gravity Falls!
Track Name: I'm Still Human
C G
I wanted to see the stars
F C G
So I signed up for an entertainment job
On a spaceship set to go out there
It didn’t matter how or why, I just didn’t care

Am F
as long as I left my home
C G
And I was alone
Am F G
With just the universe for company

But then we crashed down slow
I thought I survived, but I just didn’t know
That they wanted me for my mind
And they made me into something else, but after all this time

C F C G
I’m still human can’t you see
Am F C G
I’m no monster, I’m no machine
Am F C G
At least I’m still alive, though I hide away inside
Am F C
but I’m still human, I’m still me

And then you heard my song
After I had been waiting for so long
And I helped and I guided you
Hoping I could help get you all the way through

To where I could be saved
And not be afraid
Of everything that I’d become

So please take me away
Please free me from my mind, free me from this cage
And we’ll travel as far as we can
I just want to make you see what I am

I’m still human can’t you see
I’m no monster, I’m no machine
At least I’m still alive, though I hide away inside
but I’m still human, I’m still me

Am F
You know I’m a genius
C G
You don’t need to make me prove it
Am F
But I’ll never make out out of here
C G
If you think I’m not even human

I’m still human can’t you see
I’m no monster, I’m no machine
At least I’m still alive, though I hide away inside
but I’m still human, I’m still me
Track Name: Let Me Tell You (About Homestuck)
Am F
People keep on asking me
C G
What is Homestuck exactly
You have probably seen it around
Well listen here cause I will tell you what it's all about

It's a whole lot more than what you’re looking for
It's clever and whimsical, confusing but magical
It might be a little strange
But it's really incredible

C G
It's about four kids who play a game
Am F
And nothing will ever be the same
There's time travel shenanigans
Crazy plots and aliens
They're trying to save the universe
But not if the bad guys get them first
They're gonna need a lot of luck
Am F C
In the crazy world of Homestuck

It's a web comic with reader participation
And every so often there's a flash animation
With music and it's really really good
You can buy albums of it, and you should

That doesn't cover half of it
The first part's slow but please don't quit
It picks up the pace after a while
So please just give it a try

It's about four kids who play a game
And nothing will ever be the same
There's time travel shenanigans
Crazy plots and aliens
They're trying to save the universe
But not if the bad guys get them first
They're gonna need a lot of luck
In the crazy world of Homestuck

And don't let the fandom scare you
They're not quite as bad as they seem
Well maybe they are but that's not the point
Don't let anyone stop you from enjoying it

It's more than a comic
Because it's a whole world
The writing is fantastic
And the art's spectacular

So just try it out
And keep on clicking
It might be weird at first
but it'll start sticking

Cause it's about four kids who play a game
And nothing will ever be the same
But it's really so much more than that
So give Homestuck a chance.
Track Name: Everything is Better With Shipping
C F
Have you ever watched a movie and thought to yourself
C G
These characters touch each other quite a lot
C F
Then you start to wonder, what if they became a couple
C F C
Boy, I think that would be really hot

And then before you know it you’ve made up a whole big story
About what would happen if they hooked up
Your entire life’s about them now, you’ve become obsessed somehow
You’ve become a shipper, just like us

Am F Am G
And once you accept that, you will find out that…..

C F C G
Everything’s better with shipping
C F C G
Everything’s better with some good old fashioned slash
C F
You might even make it better, oh
C G
With a little hetero
C G C
But everyone knows that shipping’s where it’s at

And you can’t have one ship now, you’ve got to have many
You’ve got ships for all your favorite shows
And you’re thinking that eventually, with this much crazy chemistry
They’re gonna get together, you just know

But the powers that be are all conspiring against you
Sinking your ships all left and right
What does anything else matter when your ship won’t be canon
You read fanfiction to make it through the night

And now you’ve found out that, it’s totally true that….

Everything’s better with shipping
Everything’s better with some good old fashioned slash
You might even make it better, oh
With a little hetero
But everyone knows that shipping’s where it’s at

Am F
You ship characters who’ve never talked
C G
You ship cousins and brothers
You ship threesomes, foursomes, OT5s
Everybody should be lovers

The path of a shipper’s life isn’t too easy
There will always be sadness and tears
But remember online, you will always find
Shippers who share all your feels

Everything’s better with shipping
Everything’s better with some good old fashioned slash
You might even make it better, oh
With a little hetero
But everyone knows that shipping’s where it’s at
Track Name: The Fall
Dm Gm
We all knew this day would come
A#
It’s a foregone conclusion
A
With an old resolution

But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s done
What’s the chance of survival
The detective and his rival

Down, down, down, down

When Moriarty sets a trap
He won’t underestimate
And they’ll all participate

Three break-ins to prove his worth
After Adler and the Hound
And now the only way is down


Down, down, down, down

F C
And he left him behind when he fell
Gm A#
Three years of emptiness is hell
F
Please don’t be dead, he says
C
I don’t want it to end, he says
Gm A#
He was the greatest man I ever knew
Dm
What do I do

Following the trail he set
Through cases and mysteries
Through fakes and false histories

A trial and he was set free
And there goes a last chance
This will be the last dance

Down, down, down, down

They’ve all turned against him for sure
Been injected with doubt
He just has to get out

And Sherlock knows he won’t be coming back
There’s only one way out
And that way is down

Down, down, down, down

And he left him behind when he fell
Three years of emptiness is hell
Please don’t be dead, he says
I don’t want it to end, he says
He was the greatest man I ever knew
What do I do

He’s gone, his friends are safe
It’s over and it’s too late

But what they don’t know is that he’s still around
It’ll be a while before he really goes down
He’ll be having new adventures that we can see
But we’ll have to wait until season three

Track Name: Ode to Tom Hiddleston
C Am
Hey Tom Hiddleston
F G
I think you’re really cute
I saw the Avengers last weekend
And now I can’t stop thinking about you

I’d seen your face everywhere
Ever since Thor came out
But I’m only now seeing how perfect a being
You are, you’re what I dream about

Am F
You’re a great actor, intelligent
C G
Beautiful with a great accent
Am F G
And I just can’t get enough

C Am
Tom Hiddleston, how are you real
F G
I can’t contain the things you make me feel
C Am G
With your stupid perfect face
C Am
Tom Hiddleston, you’ve made my list
F G
Of people to beautiful to exist
C F G
So please don’t go away

Hey Tom Hiddleston
I love everything you do
Your interactions with fans, your movies
And especially your interviews

Yeah I just don’t get
How the hell your cheekbones work
And also, that hair, that marvelous hair
And that adorable, gorgeous smirk

You’re just so sweet, and oh so kind
Your very appearance is just divine
And I just can’t get enough

Tom Hiddleston, how are you real
I can’t contain the things you make me feel
With your stupid perfect face
Tom Hiddleston, you’ve made my list
Of people to beautiful to exist
So please don’t go away

Am F G
And every time I see a picture of you
I just want to scream and say
Please be mine, you’re just so fine
You can Loki me any day

Tom Hiddleston, how are you real
I can’t contain the things you make me feel
With your stupid perfect face
Tom Hiddleston, you’ve made my list
Of people to beautiful to exist
Am F G C
So please, please never go away
