Open both your eyes and take turns winking at the sky
Peddle both your feet as if you're riding on a bike
Put your hands together while you wave them in the air
But do not fall asleep while in prayer

The world is upside down, it's like your walking on the ceiling
Or lying on your side until your arm has lost all feeling
Roll onto your stomach like you're crawling in a cave
But do not fall asleep while you pray

Whisper like you're yelling and you can't disturb your neighbor
Or use a foreign accent that is iffy to decipher
Mumble like there's marbles if you gather what I'm saying
But do not fall asleep while you are praying

Each album represents both a U.S. President and a week of human pregnancy from birth to conception.
Starting with 42 (aka Clinton, aka overdue baby) and continuing in reverse order, all recordings are implicitly named and numbered according to past U.S. Presidents and a week of gestation.
