Everyone loved the carnival Everyone loved its sights and sounds Everyone loved the carnival And went to the carnival grounds The carnival's here and nobody cares No one is interested in what it shares Sawdust is blowing away The carnival's not here to stay The carnival's gone, and what folks don't know, is that they're still having their show Far, far away; traveling through night and traveling through day This is Ms. Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin I'm speaking to you in all honesty and naiveté I'm a ghost and a concept from the past I escaped into the present to tell you my stories I do hope you enjoy them When they are all gone, I will be as well Telling them far, far away; traveling through night, and traveling through day Everyone loved the carnival Everyone loved its sights and sounds Everyone loved the carnival, And went to the carnival grounds

Lonely Lady 02:20
The lady clutched in her hand a blue glass crystal ball The outside world she'd never see—inside her mind she'd crawl She never saw another soul except the deformed hand He'd gaze into her innocent eyes and tell her of the land Then one day a visitor came, a raven bird on wing Whose songs of sheer insanity to her he'd always sing "Little raven bird, little raven bird, Why don't you please come and sing me a song? I have no one to talk to besides the deformed hand Who just tells me of the land. I need some company, oh please! Why don't you stay with me?! Why don't you stay with me?! Why don't you stay with me?! Why don't you stay with me?!"

A pig upon a platter A catcher in the rye A truth telling deceiver that says he doesn't lie A circle in the window A green glow in the sky A helper in the cabin who doesn't even try The threads inside the sweater were growing even wetter Compared to glass reflections they segmented the sections to the everlasting why At night when I go to sleep I just can't close my eyes, For I think the Bedazzler is climbing up the sides The Bedazzler can appear in any shape or form He usually comes at night when there's a storm The covers are over my head and I know that if I lift them up he'll be standing there I don't know what to do, I guess I'll close my eyes I really hope the Bedazzler dies!

Green Glow 02:41
Follow the Green Glow far away Follow the Green Glow, watch it play Follow the Green Glow, and hear it say: "The candles are glowing—glowing green Fire on the Alpine hills give off a yellow gleam" Follow the Green Glow far away Follow the Green Glow, watch it play Follow the Green Glow, and hear it say: "What would you do if I left you here? Don't cry, don't cry, all you need is fear Fear is strong and oh so dear What would you do if I left you here? Don't cry, don't cry, all you need is fear Fear is strong and oh so dear Strong and oh so dear Strong and oh so dear"

Frozen Fish 03:15
Hey, could I get a fish? Yes, yes, the frozen fish Thank you Thanks As you lie in a tank, I look at your paralyzed eyes I often wonder how frozen you look, And how your death must have been a surprise You're a dead frozen fish—you're a dead frozen fish You're a dead frozen fish—you're a dead frozen fish Yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi You're a dead, dead, dead, dead frozen fish I buy you with some money that my grandmother gave to me I send you away in a friendly way In the May, in the May, yes in the May You're a dead frozen fish—you're a dead frozen fish You're a dead frozen fish—you're a dead frozen fish Yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi yi You're a dead, dead, dead, dead frozen fish I wrap you up in some styrofoam that I saved from a vegetable pack You're a dead frozen fish, and I do hope and wish That you'd take me far away—so far away

Houseplants 02:33
"Help, help, help! I'm drowning, I am Drowning in a pile of quicksand" Gushing liquid nation, they lived underneath the sea They lived underwater where the jellyfish do flee Fling the ketchup on the ceiling where they always watch Don't you ever let the house plants get between us Wake up all the house plants Wake them in the noon Wake up all the house plants But never too soon—never too soon Wake up all the house plants Wake them in the noon Wake up all the house plants But never too soon No, no, never too soon No, no, never too soon Living in my attic was a frozen octopus Eating all the house plants while the dormouse ate not much Woodwork in the attic was transparent, but not too clear, And all of the house plants would never stand in fear Wake up all the house plants Wake them in the noon Wake up all the house plants But never too soon—never too soon Wake up all the house plants Wake them in the noon Wake up all the house plants But never too soon—never too soon No, no, never too soon Undermation of the hourglass is not a merry tune Wake up all the house plants but never too soon Undermation of the hourglass is not a merry tune Wake up all the house plants but never too soon No, never too soon

Autumn leaves were blowing softly as the sky was falling down Autumn leaves were blowing softly as the sky was falling down Autumn leaves were blowing softly as the sky was falling down The autumn is my friend It's time for autumn to begin, And blow away all summer's sin Like wiping rust away from tin Never understood the coming, going of the spring I never understood the reason why it trouble bring The redwing birds would fly around and always eat the worms The worms would sing a little song that kept all dead things warm The sweat dripped down off the redwood I said I would wipe away its tears if only I could It brought back memories of blowing curtains in the night Which was dark, the sun was bright Never again to see the light Half a loaf of bread is better than none, Thinking on what you have done Sycamore's fragments catch wilted flowers Wilted away from the sun "Which surely states that spring has begun The stars have seen it all" Cause the night has never seen the light Cream pies are thrown on the peasants who sit on the ivory throne They have promoted the facelessness, The facelessness that's grown Circular motions wash away the rain The old man had surely gone insane Silky cream with paper cuts Run through the door before it shuts, Or you'll be thrown in burning huts Cause the night has never seen the light, The stars have seen it all Why the ground is there, do not despair, It's there to break your fall Just because you don't believe in what you've saw, Or what you've seen It truly doesn't mean the earth will stop revolving, And turn all brown grass green The night winds blows through your soul and animate your body A thousand souls weep through the wind and cry for the leaves to flow It blows the fallen leaves around, as it blows a human soul abound Then there are those the wind leaves indifferent They don't feel its life, nor its piercing knife These such are numb to their surroundings They know not what they could, and I doubt ever would Share souls with the night autumn wind Autumn leaves were blowing softly as the sky was falling down Autumn leaves were blowing softly as the sky went down

I saw him (I saw him) I saw him (I saw him—at the grocery store) Implore him (implore him) implore him (implore him—I see him now no more) A ponytail in back He‘d pack my grocery sack His left eye blue, his right eye green I saw him eat a lima bean He knows about the fish that did not have a dish, That I sent very far away Well, he was in the store that day I saw him (I saw him) I saw him (I saw him—at the grocery store) Implore him (implore him) implore him (implore him—I see him now no more) “I used to be a cowboy! I had cattle and I used to live out on the range, out west I did, When I was a cowboy. I was a cowboy!” But now he’s left the store And he is there no more “I used to be a cowboy!“

"Cream colored apples growin’ on the vine" Said the lizard to the magpie that did dine On the cream colored tree, that was next to me I could see the sun comin’ up on out of the ground And I was lookin’ at the sun which was skyward bound Picked fences held the damns in Picked fences locked us out Picked fences kept them away Picked fences made us shout Picked fences never stopped us Picked fences held us back Picked fences would make peace, But then they would attack I see a squirrel on a Sycamore tree, And I think that he's awaitin’ for me I see a squirrel on a Sycamore tree, And I think that he's awaitin’ for me. Walkin’ down a mirror road, I came upon a flea He told me of his troubles, and how he killed a tree Next to me I could see the moon comin’ up on out of the ground, And I was looking at the moon, which was skyward bound Picked fences held the damns in Picked fences locked us out Picked fences kept them away Picked fences made us shout Picked fences never stopped us Picked fences held us back Picked fences would make peace, But then they would attack

Do you remember how it used to be? It was you and me, and the other three We’d take the dollies, take the dollies, and sit them up in rows We‘d plant the seeds, and watch how they would grow We used to pick the flowers up, and spin all around Our dresses went up like buttercups in the snow The bumblebees and butterflies would sing us little songs, But when they stopped singing them, the flowers started to die, And all the bees and butterflies would cry And all that time you never knew, And always wondered why The flowers once had a garden Charisma brought the visitors The flowers planted the visitors in the ground

Part I—Eat Your Veggies You need to eat your vegetables (Eat them now! Eat them now!) I want you to clean your plate (Eat them all! Eat them all!) The dog doesn’t need your vegetables (Slipping food to the dog! Slipping food to the dog!) I know that when you put it in your mouth, you place it in a tissue, And if you think I know, you try and change the issue! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) You are growing and you need your veggies (Eat them now! Eat them now!) If you think that I’ll just forget (You are so wrong! You are so wrong!) You’re gonna’ have to eat them sooner or later (Now or then! Now or then!) If you don’t eat them hot, you’re going to eat them cold If you don’t eat them new, you’re going to eat them old Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Part II—Vegetable Serenade Thank you I’m sorry that I left you in the science lab Did they do experiments on you? They turned you into a vegetable Your roots are growing, your chlorophyll is showing I’m so sorry that I left you on the garden gate, Where you now sit and vegetate You are now not human, now not normal, you’re a veggie on my plate Now I’m eating your left side, for your right side I already ate! I put you in the blender, I put you in the grate, I even put you in a jug of V8! You did not come from outer space, but I dip you in my cheese You make my guests smile, and say, “May I have some more please?” So I sing to you a vegetable serenade! So I sing to you a vegetable serenade! So I sing to you a vegetable serenade! Part III—Vegetable Junkie There once was a human, who had a vegetable garden, And when he sprayed with toxic waste, all the vegetables would harden Pick all the vegetables up Stir them in a cup Make some vegetable stew That will really make him drool A broccoli and a squash were the human’s friends He studied the vegetable language, and learned all the vegetable trends Oh cauliflower, brussel sprouts—I eat them while I’m in or out Oh cabbage, lettuce and carrots—I feed them to my parrots Oh broccoli, celery, turnips—I medicate them to burn-ups Asparagus, eggplants, and peas—They’re good for making teas Lima beans, string beans, and baked beans—You’ve got to get what I means Please don’t give me the meats, I’d rather be eating me beets (Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies!) Oh help me, help me, help me, I think I’m a vegetable junkie! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! So I sing to you a vegetable serenade! So I sing to you a vegetable serenade! Part IV—Lima Bean A lima bean was on my plate, and a rotten date I like lima beans—vegetables can talk inside of high-pitched voices They make their own choices They have veins and skin, but not blood within Just paste—the kind you eat in kindergarten Just paste—but green, not white, like kindergarten Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Just paste—the kind you eat in kindergarten Just paste—but green, not white, like kindergarten Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! I push aside the date, and attempt to communicate with the lima bean Vegetables can talk, but I just realized something, This vegetable is dead, now nothing can be said I’ll just have to eat my food, and strip the vegetable nude And eat paste—the kind you eat in kindergarten Paste—but green, not white, like kindergarten Green not white like kindergarten! Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) Please eat your veggies! Please eat your veggies! (Eat them now! Eat them now!) So I sing to you a vegetable serenade! So I sing to you a vegetable serenade!

about

Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin's debut album resides at the corner of childlike wonder and eerie electronic minimalism, like a dark shop window through which a mysterious gleam suddenly emerges...prompting you closer, and closer still, to determine its origin.

Her influences are evident, but on songs like the simultaneously touching and disquieting 'Lonely Lady' and the album's centerpiece, 'Veggie Medley' (which clocks in at an impressive nine minutes), Petunia brings a whole new dimension to the genre of experimental music.

The cumulative impression left by "Fish Drive Edsels" is a profound one, with hints of tales yet untold. (Be sure to watch the videos that accompany these songs, too: they're fantastic.)
