about

Have you ever thought what it would be like to duplicate yourself into someone else so that they didn't exist anymore? Have you ever wanted to DO THE MANTA RAY?? These questions have been puzzling the members of Flavored Cardboard every since they went into early vacation following the release of their acclaimed blockbuster album Funky Chunky at the start of the summer. Puzzling them so much, in fact, that they decided to come out of retirement once again in order to answer these age-old questions... in SONG FORM. Yes, folks—the Carb is back.

And these two songs are just the beginning. During their final recording session for the single, their engineer revealed himself to be an evil sorcerer and he placed a curse upon the band—one which forces them to keep playing music, and make another album before fading away into the annals of rock. Keep your eyes and ears and potatoes peeled...

Track Name: Carbon Copy
Duplicate me, you'll be my carbon copy
Always you'll do what I'd do
Replicate me, the both of us will see
When there are two mes and no yous

Every day, I take a piece of you with me
And a piece of me fills the empty space
If we carry on, it won’t be long
'Til every single part of you has been replaced

Duplicate me, you'll be my carbon copy
One in a million, but now there's two
Replicate me, the both of us will see
How everybody’s different, 'cept for me and you

At first the changes will come slowly
When your family notices a difference in your ways
But in a few weeks, you'll be unrecognizable
Soon you will be gone, and I'll be here to stay

And I know right now you think that
I'm a bad person in every way
But let's see if you feel differently
When you're living my life every single day

Duplicate me, youll be my carbon copy
Always you'll do what I'd do
Replicate me, the both of us will see
When there are two mes and no yous

Duplicate me, you'll be my carbon copy
One in a million, but now there's two
Replicate me, the both of us will see
How everybody's different, 'cept for me and you
Track Name: Do the Manta Ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray

Manta rays are large rays belonging to the genus Manta
Their larger species, M. birostris, reaches 7 meters in width

Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray

Do we like manta rays?
Oh yeah
Do we like manta rays?
Oh yeah (I thought so)

Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah, Come on)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Do the manta ray)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Do the manta ra-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray

Oh yeah
