Another improv track riffing off of the previous Bearded Dragon. This was the last time the Slimelords/the Next ever played together. We broke up shortly after some pictures of us were taken together that same night.

Party Gorilla!

Lyrics and text by The Oatmeal, taken from his brilliant comic. I basically read it and thought "Cortex should turn this into a hyper-ballad." Man vs sun then suggested we should make one, instead. Here is the result. [more inside]
