Inspired by all of the cartoons we grew up with that were extended toy commercials. We went back to re-watch these shows and the vast majority made us want to write this song.

Performed live at ChargerCon Fall 2013 on the campus of the University of Alabama in Huntsville.


I think so many things
are not totally outrageous
and I think that sometimes
you fools are too too courageous

The animation is failing
things I need today
Never gave me anything
I really needed any-way

so just get out of my head
lessons from the past
I don't need the answers
to the questions I never asked

Why have you failed me
Television from my childhood
I went back and watched those shows
But none of them were that good

Why did you try to sell me
All those plastic things
Why do you ruin my idols
On the silver screen

How come it seems like Cobra Commander rules the world?
and I can't get an action figure to save my girl?
if good always wins, then where's the good for me
oh, I don't GI Joe is tellin me everything


I’ve never been defeated
On a double dog dare
I’ll defeat all your evil
With a care bear stare

I will kill the skeletons
Rattling my bones
By the power of greyskull
I will make this world my home

I can see decepticons
Every where I look
Chasing after my enerjon
Fighting for my cube

Thundercats HO
We’re all gonna go
Find the people who ruined
All our favorite shows



from We Live! 2013, released August 28, 2014
