about

This started out simply as a song with a dance move that jumped you back 13 seconds... and now it's this.

Written during FAWM 2015

lyrics

It’s not the latest vitamin
It lets you jump to where you begin
Put your dancing shoes on
And your phaser on stun
Cause the rolling helps when you’re having fun

Time shouldn’t be a one way street
Lets go back so we can repeat
A short little walk back to the past
Come on everyone it’ll be a blast

Let’s go
Who needs careers
Dance by the light
Of Berylium spheres

Come on do it again
Lets rewind this scene
Triskaidekaphobics
Learns mental aerobics
And do the Omega 13

Permanent deja vu
'Cause now there’s a bunch of you
Keep on looping as long as it takes
'Cause 13 seconds holds a ton of mistakes

There’s no logical imperative
It’s all part of the narrative
Lets turn inside out and then explode
Unless we stop at one in the episode

Never give up
Never surrender
Never say
By Grabthar’s Hammer

Come on do it again
Lets rewind this scene
Put your coat on the hanger
And grab your doppelganger
Let’s do the Omega 13

Maybe we’ll destroy the universe
Or maybe nothing happens at all
Maybe it’s replaced with something worse
Or maybe we’ll have a ball

Kep-mok Blood Ticks to calm those cravings
Only need one - "what a savings"
The only problem to jumping back
getting beat up again by Gorignack

Come on and do it again
Let’s rewind the scene
Quantum Fluctuations
Lead to pelvic gyrations
Do the Omega 13

Come on and do it again
Let’s rewind the scene
Heisenberg’s uncertain
Why you’re shaking like a curtain
Do the Omega 13
