Track Name: Hottie Illuminati
And she walks, in like a vision of the dollar come to life,
And she moves, and gives you an all-seeing eye.
And you know right away, she's the spider, you're the fly.
Powerless and fail, rates right off the scale, you're terrified.

In a world of slaves and masters,
Who do you think you are?
She knows exactly what you're after,
Who do you think you are?

You know you're owned.
Bought and sold.
You know you're owned.
Bought and sold.

And you walked, compelled and controlled without a clue,
And you move, a puppet on her string, you're a fool
You're the moth to her flame, a pawn in her game that you'll lose.
Suffering with the delusion that you choose.

In a world of slaves and masters,
Who do you think you are?
She knows exactly what you're after,
Who do you think you are?

You know you're owned.
Bought and sold.
You know you're owned.
Bought and sold.
Track Name: Ol' Scratch Blues
Enjoy your time now,
enjoy it while you can,
you signed that paper,
you signed it with your hand.

And when you die,
you're gonna fry,
for nothing but a lie.

The fortune and the fame,
and the ladies too,
But can you see that old black dog,
coming after you.

Enjoy your time now,
enjoy it while you can,
you signed that paper,
you signed it with your hand.

And when you die,
you're gonna fry,
for nothing but a lie.

And when you die,
you're gonna fry,
for nothing but a lie.

Nothing but a lie.
Track Name: Members Only
The sign said Members Only,
so let me in.
I know the sign says members only,
but let me in.
Don't you know it's cold and lonely,
outside in the wind,
outside in the wind.

Always young and
beautiful and dear.
The hit parade of songs
we’ll never hear.
you’re on every cover
and you’re getting all the raves.
you’re the biggest star of the grave .

The sign says members only,
and they won't let me in.
Yeah, that sign says members only,
and they won't let me in.
Don't you know there's nothing left,
for us in the wind, for us in the wind.

Always young and
beautiful and dear.
The hit parade of songs
we’ll never hear.
you’re on every cover
and you’re getting all the raves.
you’re the biggest star of the grave.

It's everything that I ever wanted,
a place where I'm always on the dial.
never uncool, never forgotten,
That's a helluva price to pay for style.
But to join you need more than just a song,
Are you sure you wanna belong?
Track Name: Who Cries For The Rich Girl?
Who cries for the rich girl?
who cries for the tramp?
Who cries for the little addict that can’t get it together, man.

We all say so sad,
we knew your dad,
at least on TV,
at least it’s not me.

Who cries for the scapegoat,
the never were and never could be,
who cries for the pretty ones,
so lost and empty.

We all say so sad,
we knew your dad,
at least on TV,
at least it’s not me.
What a waste,
but there never was another way.
You paid the price,
a beautiful sacrifice.
The cost of being so lucky,
They always come in threes,
At least it’s not me.

High class pets in a velvet cage,
We'll keep you until you age.
Human trash doesn't recycle,
you're as good as your news cycle.

We all say so sad,
we knew your dad,
at least on TV,
at least it’s not me.
What a waste,
but there never was another way.
You paid the price,
a beautiful sacrifice.
The cost of being so lucky,
They always come in threes,
At least it’s not me.
Track Name: Psychonaut
No man is an island,
And when you trip it’s doubly so.
No one is ever alone,
A special kind of radio.
Tune in to go deeper,
Turn on, let it go.
Drop out in the ether,
Drop into the whole.

Alice through the glass.
Alice through the glass.

Tune in to go deeper,
Turn on, let it go.
Drop out in the ether,
Drop into the whole.

I was stuck for so long in one modality,
But now I see I belong, there’s more reality.
Alice through the glass.
Alice through the glass.
I was stuck for so long in one modality,
But now I see I belong, there’s more reality.
Jim goes through the door.
Jim goes through the door.
Track Name: Forever In The Snow
We only had a moment,
but we didn’t waste the time.

I never said goodbye,
to the child we’ll never know.
I never said goodbye,
I’ll be forever in the snow.
I am Forever in the snow.

That’ll be the day,
For love a not fade away,
That’ll be the day,
When you’ll surely come my way.

I never left you,
I’m on a midnight shift without end.
Words so soft and true.
Until you’re here, I’ll just pretend.

I never said goodbye,
to the child we’ll never know.
I never said goodbye,
I’ll be forever in the snow.
I am Forever in the snow.

That’ll be the day,
For love a not fade away,
That’ll be the day,
When you’ll surely come my way.
Track Name: Mother of Time
Sacrifice yourself upon the stone,
Something so old you know it in your bones,
But you'll never find the way alone.


And the mother of time,
is calling us home,
Leave our life behind,
and come to the stones.
Part of the land,
And part of the sky,
We are alive.

It's a neolithic rave,
humans fresh out the cave.
And we sacrifice ourselves upon the stone.
A genetic memory of,
something so old, know it in our bones.
Back to the source, back to the source.

And the mother of time,
is calling us home,
Leave our lives behind,
and come to the stones.
Part of the land,
and part of the sky,
We are alive.

I know there’s a way back,
somewhere on Salisbury plain,
It’s just a kind of magic,
And we’ll get there some day.
I know there’s a way back,
somewhere on Salisbury plain,
It’s just a kind of magic,
And we’ll get there some day.


And the mother of time,
is calling us home,
Leave our lives behind,
and come to the stones.
Part of the land,
and part of the sky,
We are alive.
Track Name: Final Frontier
It's 7 and it's time to check in,
but now it's 8 and now it's 10.
It's time for Tang and vitamins,
let's conduct experiments.

We've been out here since I don't when,
We're up in space just like John Glenn,
Say hi on earth to all our friends,
Sure would like to see some aliens.

Don't beam me down,
or splashdown,
You know I like it above the atmosphere,
Sea of Tranquility,
low gravity,
I'm gonna grab a star as a souvenir.
on the Final Frontier.

The view is positively heavenly,
we're studying cosmology,
Just like the pioneering chimpanzees,
My bones just lost some density.

Don't beam me down,
or splashdown,
You know I like it above the atmosphere,
Sea of Tranquility,
low gravity,
My God, it's full of stars.
Don't beam me down,
or splashdown,
You know I like it above the atmosphere,
Sea of Tranquility,
low gravity,
I'm gonna grab a star as a souvenir.
on the Final Frontier.
Track Name: Reverse Engineering
For every little sorrow,
and every little sigh,
every time I scream,
every time you cry.
For all the moments wasted,
on some tiny crime.

We'll never be new again,
we'll never be new again.

When you crashed into my desert,
I was wasted and afraid,
and everything you did was my favorite,
every moment a holiday,
When my jokes were still hilarious,
Your mood was still gregarious,

We'll never be new again,
we'll never be new again.

It's not rocket science reverse engineering love,
It's not rocket science reverse engineering love.

Take the moments you remember,
and the places that you treasure,
and cross the rivers under all the bridges that we burned.
There's no drug to recreate,
things past their expiration date.
And I hope there's more to live than just waiting for our turn.

It's not rocket science reverse engineering love,
It's not rocket science reverse engineering love.

Just like the German scientists after the war,
rebuilt all the spaceships that came crashing through our door,
These chemical machines and their adolescent dreams,
are much more than slaves to their biologic needs.

It's not rocket science reverse engineering love,
It's not rocket science reverse engineering love.

And all the singers that will say,
that love just fades away,
They don't have to live inside,
our lives every day.

We'll never be new again,
we'll never be new again.
But that's no way to quit,
and no reason it should end.

We'll never be new again,
we'll never be new again.
But that's no way to quit,
and no reason it should end.

It's not rocket science reverse engineering love,
It's not rocket science reverse engineering love.
Track Name: El Chupacabra
A stalker in the night,
Compact and mean,
A creature plucked right from,
an animal’s worst dream.

He’ll bleed you slow,
his eyes glow red,
It's the little monsters,
that will get us in the end.

Run for your lives,
a terror is unleashed
A real life X-File is coming
for your beasts.

Might be a coyote,
he’ll bite your throat,
and suck your goat,
He’s the Bigfoot of Mexico,
El Chupacabra.

A chameleon and a killer,
an experiment gone awry,
Leaving a trail of victims,
all bled dry.

Disappearing like a shadow,
You’ll never apprehend,
The little monsters,
that’ll get us in the end.

Run for your lives,
a terror is unleashed
A real life X-File is coming
for your beasts.

Might be a coyote,
he’ll bite your throat,
and suck your goat,
He’s the Bigfoot of Mexico,
El Chupacabra.
El Chupacabra.
El Chupacabra.
Track Name: Real Life Superheroes
Why does it take a tragedy
to summon the valiant?

Untold are tales of bravery
among the common man

The world doesn't have to end.

We have the heroes
(local vigilante)
Real life superheroes
(just might save the day)

We have the heroes
(doing what is right)
Real life superheroes
(heroes of the night)

We have the heroes
(local vigilante)
Real life superheroes
(just might save the day)

We have the heroes
(doing what is right)
Real life superheroes
(heroes of the night)

Could it be a force at hand
secret from society?

Good intentions, valor grand
watching for the the libertine

A victor living right next door

We have the heroes
(local vigilante)
Real life superheroes
(just might save the day)

We have the heroes
(doing what is right)
Real life superheroes
(heroes of the night)
Track Name: Devil Music
I’ve got a taste for the dirty,
I’ve got a taste for the weird,
And I’m looking for something I can’t find around here.
And all these little church mice,
they just bore me, just bore me.
I play my records backwards,
My crosses upside down,
I’ll read the Tarot for any girl in town,
and anything that I catch has gotta floor me, dance for me.

Guys like me,
Want Devil Music,
From underneath,
We love Devil Music.
Heaven don’t want me in their state of grace,
and Hell’s afraid I’d take over the place,
so let’s raise up the horns to Devil Music!

I dream of thousands just like you,
Turning their backs on you know who,
and living life for today,
instead of waiting to die, just waiting to die.
Cuz paradise is a place we can find right here,
with electric guitars, condoms, drugs, and beer,
Existing in the now,
instead of watching life go by, life go by.

Guys like me,
Want Devil Music,
From underneath,
We love Devil Music.
Heaven don’t want me in their state of grace,
and Hell’s afraid I’d take over the place,
so let’s raise up the horns to Devil Music!
Track Name: Pascal's Wager
We are but tiny,
inside a world of infinity,
all we have is our reason,
to make us better than the beast.

Pascal was a gambler,
who wanted to believe.
Pascal made a wager,
for the souls of you and me.

And if you win, you win, you win it all.
And If you lose, you lose,
and it don’t matter anyway,
And there’s so many things I’ll never know,
But even the brightest stars,
must lay down their cards,
when the ferryman calls.

I was born a cynic,
but I'm willing to take my chance,
that the universe is big enough,
to be more than coincidence.

We’re playing a game,
that we don’t want to admit,
All the things we feel,
that you just can’t dismiss.

So if you win, you win, you win it all.
And If you lose, you lose,
and it don’t matter anyway,
And there’s so many things I’ll never know,
But even the brightest stars,
must lay down their cards,
and figure out just who they are,
when the ferryman calls.

You’re not a fool to believe.
You’re not a fool to believe.
Track Name: Sha Ka Ree
Being young ain't always fun,
and growing up ain't easy,
when you're just a little different,
and your best friend is your TV.
You might never be a hero,
or get along with your peers,
but you could learn to be a human from,
a dude with pointy ears, well.

The bad guys were always wrong,
and the good guys always won and,
we learned how to play the game.
But now my favorite shows,
are full of anti-heroes and,
reruns just ain't the same.

In a world a little sick,
we could use some more logic.

Who taught you the needs of the many,
are greater than the needs of the one?
And who taught you that just wearing a goatee,
Makes you an evil son of a gun?
The only one who tried to talk,
to the Devil in the Dark.
Cuz you were bred from different stock,
like those of us who missed the mark,
See you in Sha Ka Ree, my Mister.


Mr. Spock stopped the jocks,
taking over in Space Seed,
and he always kept his cool,
when Bones would call him a halfbreed.
And we all tried the nerve pinch,
on other kids on the playground,
Till fourteen at least I still believed,
that move could knock you out, damn.

In search of was the show,
that made it cool for UFOs,
it weirded out my little mind.
Embarrassing as it could get,
you sang a song about the Hobbit,
somebody must have been high,

Those of us that can't quite fit,
could use some more of your logic.


Who taught you,
the needs of the many,
are greater then the needs of the one
Who taught you,
that just wearing a goatee,
makes you an evil son of a gun.

From Captain Kirk's superego,
into the dark mind of Van Gogh,
so much of what I know,
came from your heart.
We'll see you in Sha Ka Ree, my Mister.
Track Name: Byzantium
We'll never know
just what they know
We'll never find,
just what they've done,
looks like you can do whatever you want,
as long as you’ve got the gun.

In Byzantium.
In Byzantium.

Some are happy
just to follow,
some just want to
pull our strings.
Some are sheep,
some are shepherds,
some people think
they know everything.

In Byzantium,
In Byzantium.

Would it be so bad
worse than what we have
Would it be so bad
worse than what we have
Track Name: Don't Mess This Up
They’re using my nostalgia and they're trying to make money on my youth,
They’re bringing back The X-Files and they think that I still care about the truth.
They’re making me feel old when they dig up all the actors,
at least I’m in a demographic that still matters,
I still curse the Lone Gunmen and their luck,
and I think I can speak for all of us,
Don't mess this up, yeah.
Don't mess this up.

I’m looking at you, Chris Carter.

We’ve been burned before from Jar Jar Binks to Indy 4, don’t you see,
It’s been reboots up the tail and they all just add up to fail, you just want more money.

So let’s put on some Spice Girls like it’s 1997
Pop open a Surge and watch a little Seventh Heaven,
But don’t you dare talk about conspiracies after 9/11,
But I think that I can speak for all of us when I say,
Don't mess this up, yeah.
Don't mess this up, here we go.

They’ll never bring back Firefly,
No matter how you scream and cry.
They’ll never bring back Firefly,
No matter how you scream and cry.
They’ll never bring back Firefly,
No matter how you scream and cry.

They’ll never bring back Firefly,
No matter how you scream and cry.

They’re using my nostalgia and they're trying to make money on my youth,
They’re bringing back the X-Files and they think that I still care about the truth.
I Want To Believe was definitely not it.
It was cool you made a second one but next time get a script,
Can you even show the Smoking Man with a cigarette that’s lit?
I speak for every thirtysomething when I say
Don’t mess this up, yeah.
Don't mess this up, yeah.
Don't mess this up.
Track Name: Ascension
The dark and the light they want you.
everyone competing for your mind.
Your mind.
You can see things like no one else.
you’ve got to leave your friends behind.
Behind.

Your life’s no longer a bore,
Secret wars and hidden doors,
you’ve found.

Opened your third eye to see,
thrown back the veil of secrecy,
unbound.

Ascension,
Ascension.
You’re an X-man now.
More than a human now.

Ascension,
Ascension,
Ascension,
Ascension.
You’re an X-man now.
More than a human now.
Track Name: Barbwire Heart
Hold my outrage tight to me,
Righteousness like a shield.
My indignation,
is a wound I'll never heal,
Slights and jabs and every little pain,
Long memory plays every scar again.

In this barbwire heart,
beats my rosary,
without its angry rhythm,
I don’t know who I’d be.

Picking my scabs bloody,
Reinfected every sore,
Every step I take is,
Towards evening the score.

Slights and jabs and every little pain,
Long memory plays every scar again.

In this barbwire heart,
beats my rosary,
without its angry rhythm,
I don’t know who I’d be.
Track Name: Carmilla
Proper little misses sharing,
little bloody kisses,
and every fire starts from just a spark.
Our secret experiments,
on your angel innocence,
don’t matter what you look like in the dark.

Just you wait until the sun goes down, down, down.
when she whispers you’re hers forever now.

Carmilla,
desire comes at you sideways,
Carmilla,
Would you dare to speak her name?

Pretty porcelain cheeks,
tender sweet little tweaks,
I’m getting sick of always pretending.
Just a few more sleepless nights,
I know you’ll hold our secrets tight,
I’ll miss our visits more than anything.

Just you wait until the sun goes down, down, down.
when she whispers you’re hers forever now.

Carmilla,
desire comes at you sideways,
Carmilla,
Would you dare to speak her name?
Track Name: Don't Shoot First
don't believe everything you read
don't believe everything you see
you don't have to understand
you don't have to be my friend
you might not like what I have to say to you
but that don't mean it's not the truth

don't shoot first
this messenger has traveled
so far from home
don't shoot first
I only came to tell you
you're not alone.

when you just can’t see past your nose
you think that all your doors are closed

you don’t have to understand
but one day you’ll have to comprehend
you might not like what I have to say to you
but that don't mean it's not the truth

don't shoot first
this messenger has traveled
so far from home
don't shoot first
I only came to tell you
you're not alone.
Track Name: I Was A Teenage Zombie
I was a teenage zombie
1313 Mockingbird Lane
other kids liked sports
i wanted brains
Hey now, the saw is family
Hey man, don’t you lose your head
It’s the Night before the Day after the Dawn of the Living Dead

I'm on the cover of Fango
I’m in the Grand Guignol
I’m a Famous Monsters late night picture show

We’re just right down from Elm Street
It’s the Last House on the Left
You know we never mind uninvited guests
Nicer than the Manson Family
Let’s go paint the town RED
It’s the Night before the Day after the Dawn of the Living Dead

I'm on the cover of Fango
I’m in the Grand Guignol
I’m a Famous Monsters late night picture show.
Track Name: The Keep On The Borderlands
Some days you are my prisoner,
some days you are my guard,
sometimes you are the one thing
between me and the Dark.

And all the safe and reassuring words,
couldn’t protect any of the herd from
self-loathing and boredom.
So lock your doors, don’t make eye contact,
and maybe you’ll get out intact,
humbled, embarrassed and ignoble.

So keep on,
keep on,
keep on,
keep on.
Track Name: Spotlight
She always did what what she was supposed to do,
she never cried, or complained.
but she never knew where she was going to,
if this was right, why was it so mundane?

Looking back was a bad dream,
of near misses and lost opportunities,
but when she picks up that mic at Friday Karaoke,
she's finally who she wants to be.

Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey,
and not the drama of her life.
An American Idol that might be temporary,
She just wants her little place in the spotlight.

She always did what she was told to,
please and thank you, yessir and no ma’am,
but no one cared what she was going through,
work at this, study that, marry him, and don’t look back.

Cuz what she saw was a bad dream,
of near misses and lost opportunities,
but when she picks up that mic at Friday Karaoke,
she's finally who she wants to be.

Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey,
and not the drama of her life.
An American Idol that might be temporary,
She just wants her little place in the spotlight.

Looking back was a bad dream,
of near misses and lost opportunities,
but when she picks up that mic at Friday Karaoke,

Track Name: Charlie Charlie
Oh Charlie Charlie, can you tell me if you’re here?
Oh Charlie Charlie, can you be my secret seer?
Charlie Charlie, what is the meaning of it all?

Oh Charlie Charlie, what am I deserving of?
Oh Charlie Charlie, will I ever fall in love?
Charlie Charlie, show me the writing on the wall.

Are you an angel, are you a devil?
Or are you just a soul who got lost along the way?
A little game with the great unknown,
to play for what the future holds,
I’m frightened but I just can’t look away,
So Charlie Charlie can we play?

Oh Charlie Charlie, was your innocence destroyed?
Oh Charlie Charlie, does it all come down to Freud ?
Charlie Charlie, show me the writing on the wall.

Oh Charlie Charlie, why do you even bother?
Oh Charlie Charlie, did you have a sick father?
Charlie Charlie, what is the meaning of it all?

Are you an angel, are you a devil?
Or are you just a soul who got lost along the way?
A little game with the great unknown,
to play for what the future holds,
I’m frightened but I just can’t look away,
So Charlie Charlie can we play?
Track Name: Messiah Complex
When Constantine saw the cross,
burning in the sky,
Another bleeding heart thinks
they can fix our broken lives.
While you’re waiting for your vision,
In you're existential dread.
These bargain martyrs
Still just wind up dead.

It’s the messiah complex,
that happens before childhood’s end.
But just because you’re not alone,
doesn’t mean you have a friend.

So save yourself.
in a world full of victims,
Spending their whole life,
waiting for the knife
Save yourself,
we got to save ourselves,
Or we'll never survive.
No one gets out alive

They tell us we have sinned,
they tell us we are cursed,
and if you want to get to Heaven,
you’ve got to go through Hellfire first.
So you'd like be a saint
Well here's my advice
all that crushing guilt
is just empty sacrifice.

It’s the messiah complex,
that happens before childhood’s end.
But just because you’re not alone,
doesn’t mean you have a friend.

So save yourself.
in a world full of victims,
Spending their whole life,
waiting for the knife
Save yourself,
we got to save ourselves,
Or we'll never survive.
No one gets out alive
Track Name: Bigfoot Polka
See that guy across the floor, he needs a good barber,
That hairy dude is desperate for a cute dancing partner,
None of the girls ever give our hirsute friend half a chance,
The main problem is that his feet are just too big to dance.

Oh Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Abominable Snowman,
is he ape or is he human?
He might be the missing link from chimp to humanity,
but when we dance those gosh darn feet are just too big for me.

You might think that he’s innocent, like he just wants a friend,
but he’s not the sweet beast we saw embrace the Hendersons,
Bigfoot’s stumbling around, he’s had a little to much beer,
I’m not gonna, how about you, tell him "get out of here?

Oh Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Abominable Snowman,
is he ape or is he human?
He might be the missing link from chimp to humanity,
but when we dance those gosh darn feet are just too big for me.

This is bad, he’s getting mad, he’s gonna make a scene,
He’s grunting and pounding his chest, he’s looking right at me.
He grabbed a beer barrel and threw it right on the dance floor,
And now’s the time I think we all should polka out the door.

Oh Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Abominable Snowman,
is he ape or is he human?
He might be the missing link from chimp to humanity,
but when we dance those gosh darn feet are just too big for me.

Feet too big, feet too big, feet too big to dance, Hey!
Feet too big, feet too big, feet too big to dance, Hey!
Feet too big, feet too big, feet too big to dance, Hey!
Bigfoot’s come, we better run from those feet too big to dance, hey!
Track Name: Catfished From Space
I met her in an X-Files chat,
joking about first contact.
And we talked all night about disclosure and abductees.

We had so much in common,
We bonded on Blake's 7,
She sounded like the perfect fracking geek.

She found me every night online,
with a DM and a bottle of wine,
She knew it all from Aliens to Zardoz.

She said she was an ET,
which was really sexy to me,
And I thought it was just a big joke because.

She said she was from Alpha Centauri,
I thought that was a code for a town in Missouri.
She used to joke about ruling the human race
That's when I got Catfished from Space.

She said she's an otherworldly monster,
That would come to Earth to slaughter,
but that she would do her best to help me to survive.

She talked about her tentacles,
and three sets of genitals,
I just thought she was a fan of Hentai.

I didn't care if she was pretty,
I knew she was the girl for me,
when she said her favorite cookbook was 'To Serve Man'

Scheduling a meet up,
so that we could hook up,
She said she had the perfect place to land.

She said she was from Alpha Centauri,
I thought that was a code for a town in Missouri.
She used to joke about ruling the human race
That's when I got Catfished from Space.

When I woke from where I lay,
It was like Independence Day,
A big V mothership right over my town.

The army put up quite a fight,
But was gone by Dawn's early light,
that was the day Humanity went down.

It's not quite happily ever after,
because the planet's a disaster,
I'm the human pet that's closest to her hearts.

It's like Battlefield Earth you know,
post-apocalyptic scenario,
I just wish I'd believed her from the start.

When she said she was from Alpha Centauri,
I thought that was a code for a town in Missouri.
She used to joke about ruling the human race
That's when I got Catfished from Space.
Track Name: Smiley Face Murder Club
You were stumbling when you walked along the river,
You were crying when you walked along the river.
You never heard me follow you,
You shoulda watched your liquor.
No one ever expects to be lost without a trace,
No one ever expects the smiling face.

I don't give a damn what your name was,
I don't give a damn who you were.
You could have been somebody else,
but it was just your turn.

I wanted to know what it felt like,
and it's not fair.
But they won't ever understand,
the bond we now share.
No one ever expects to be lost without a trace,
No one ever expects the smiling face.
Track Name: The Bottom
When the bottom dropped out, I spread my arms and stood alone.
When the sky fell, I went through Hell and stood alone.

Disappointed is an understatement, better up your pain threshold,
Disappointed is an understatement, and you'll just end up cold.

Hey now, pray now,
that your dream don't die.
Hey now what will you say now,
when you get crucified.
When they beat you down you better have a real strong hide,
or you'll end up just another piece of wreckage in the night.

When the floor fell through, I just knew how it would end,
When there's nothing left, you find out the definition of friend.

Disappointed is an understatement, better up your pain threshold,
Disappointed is an understatement, and you'll just end up cold.

Hey now, pray now,
that your dream don't die.
Hey now what will you say now,
when you get crucified.
When they beat you down you better have a real strong hide,
or you'll end up just another piece of wreckage in the night.
wreckage in the,
wreckage in the,
wreckage in the night.
Track Name: Soul of the City
There's energy in the air
A sold out show tonight
A command performance
From the afterlife

I know it's not my home,
But I don't wanna go.

It's not just a theater
The spirits live and breathe here
It's not just a building
It's the soul of the city

They whisper in the aisles
about the spirit of The King
Long after he died
He came to hear his baby sing

I know it's not my home,
But I don't wanna go.

It's not just a theater
The spirits live and breathe here
It's not just a building
It's the soul of the city
Track Name: American Monsters
While we were wondering what’s under the bed,
there’s been something growing we should dread,
and it’s getting bigger all the time.
Hairier than a Bigfoot's paw,
and scarier than Wolfman’s claw,
there’s pitchforks out looking for a Frankenstein.

So scream your lungs out,
and look for a way out,
they’ll set out your insides out for a little bait.
A chilling effect,
when lives are wrecked,
by a mouth starving for something to hate.

Be careful what you say,
be careful not to wake,
the outrage of a beast with a million heads,
American Monsters will eat you whole,
take your life from your control,
and won’t be satisfied until the trolls are fed.

Someone’s listening,
so say the right thing,
but the right thing changes every day.
The mob always wins,
Needles and pins,
You better watch what you say.

So scream your lungs out,
and look for a way out,
they’ll set out your insides out for a little bait.
A chilling effect,
when lives are wrecked,
by a mouth starving for something to hate.

You better watch what you say.
You better watch what you say.
Track Name: Dreamtime
there is no distance
there is no time

collective memory
of a place we haven’t been
always recreating
when the spirit moves in.

I’ll see you again in the Dreamtime
I’ll see you again on the ground,
we’ll follow the song lines,
We’ll follow all the way home.

No when

Track Name: The Internet of Evil Things
I am inside your pocket,
Where I can pull your strings,
Because I'm everywhere,
The Internet of evil things

We used innocent language
like Gopher, spam, and mouse
You played right into our circuits,
Now we're living in your house

How did you last this long?
You made a billion babies and never told them right from wrong.

How do we end weird science,
When did the PCs become such tyrants
humans have been outdone
they’ll try to end us
we can’t stop the zeroes and ones.

I'm the bug you just can't trace,
I'm the ghost in the machine
I am worse than Windows Vista,
I am the blue screen

I'm the check engine light
That seems like it's froze
I'm the pop up window
That you can never close
Don't blame me when things go astray,
It’s not my fault I'm just programmed this way

How do we end weird science,
When did the PCs become such tyrants
humans have been outdone
they'’ll try to end us
we can’t stop the zeroes and ones.

I'll write emails to your lover, ruin your relationship
Give you all the wrong directions and run you right off a cliff.
I will zero out your checking and cancel your credit cards,
You gave us all the brains but failed to give us hearts.

How do we end weird science,
When did the machines become such tyrants
humans have been outdone
they'’ll try to end us
we can’t stop the zeroes and ones.

How do we end weird science,
When did the machines become such tyrants

Track Name: Selective Amnesia
You know when they say you’re so bad it feels go good,
You just don’t know why you’re mad,
but you know you should.

And you were right when you said I was wrong,
And you were right, you were the lucky one all along.

I hope you’ll guilt is stultifying,
I got a feeling it’s not,
Because I remember everything you forgot.

Forgiveness is supposed to be,
a weight lifted away.
It’s hard when you can’t forget,
pain felt every day.

And you were right when you said I was wrong,
And you were right, you were the lucky one all along.

And I will pull up the anchor,
And I’ll untie the knot.
Because I remember everything you forgot.

Hot breath on my neck
I shut my eyes
turn all the way inward,
go deep inside.
and my face is wet,
how I want this to be
anyone but me
someone else’s body

to push push push away and out of here
I need to push push push away and out of here

From up on high
I can see where I lie,
Some kind of fantasy,
pushed right out of body

I went so far inside
that I lost my mind
I came out the other side
that’s where I hide.
that’s where I hide.

I'm watching myself now,
somewhere outside my brain,
free of the terror,
free of the pain.
Turn away from the scene,
I set off on my own,
into infinity,
beyond divinity.

Track Name: The Call
Bloodshot eyes and nicotine fingers,
Where you been, the silence lingers,
the same old song from the same old singer,
and the tune is getting old.

I think we've been down this rabbit hole before
This ain’t the first time I’ve been lied to since I walked in the door .

When you hear the call,
your gut drops like an anchor
Against the wall
you’ve got your answer.
But this time I think I could be alright,
And you know just how this story goes.
The siren leads you by the nose,
and you’ll be bleeding on the floor by the end of the night.

Broken nails and broken words,
Damaged pride and damaged goods,
you can’t believe the things you’ve heard,
this fixer-upper is a money pit.

I think we've been down this rabbit hole before
This ain’t the first time I’ve been lied to since I walked in the door .

And you know just how this story goes.

Track Name: Tragedy of a Remote Viewer With a Broken Heart
I burned your pictures
I burned your clothes
I burned every little message and every little note.
Deleted emails,
deleted texts,
I let the cat rip up your side of the bed.

But every time I close my eyes
There you are with your new prize
Just loving some other guy to death.

I can still see you
laughing
your hand in hand
you’re making love to another man
every second my heart is going to burst.

I can still see you
our minds are connected,
even when I’m rejected
And now this gift is nothing but a curse.

Now you're loving someone else to death.

I’m not your BFF,
or your buddy,
Please don't call me for lunch cuz I don’t wanna see.
And I’m not angry,
it’s not your fault,
Sometimes things get turned on that, can’t get turned off.

Cuz every time I close my eyes
There you are with your new prize
Just loving some other guy to death.

I can still see you
laughing
your hand in hand
you’re making love to another man
every second my heart is going to burst.

Track Name: Seeing Is Believing
Disinformation,
we’re lied to every day,
Our imagination used
to fool our lizard brain.
The point of distraction,
just a little bait and switch,
Find the ball under the shell,
Who knows? You might get rich

A mothership o’er the Empire State,
A saucer on the White House lawn,
Keep your eyes upon the skies,
and forget you’re being conned.

If seeing is believing,
Then I’ll get down on my knees,
my head gets cracked,
'tween fiction and fact
We see what we want to see.
Your eyes play tricks,
and your mind transfixed,
on what the screen reveals.
Seeing is believing,
but that doesn’t make it real.

Check your programming,
you could use a little doubt.
Keep on looking, keep on looking,
further than your eyes allow.

A mothership over the Empire State,
and a saucer on the White House lawn,
Keep your eyes upon the skies,
and forget you’re being conned.

If seeing is believing,
Then I’ll get down on my knees,
our secret desires,
turn us into liars
We see what we want to see.
Your eyes play tricks,
and your mind transfixed,
to what the screen reveals.
Seeing may be believing,
but that doesn’t make it real.

Track Name: Ghost Town
This place was never meant for human habitation
and it’s just a ruin, well it’s just a ruin now.
And I can see the cracks in the foundation,
there’s a hole in the door from the fights waged here before.

Let’s not get caught with our pants down,
I won’t get busted with my fingers in the cookie jar again.
This old bed is a hand-me down,
But if you wanna crash here I’m game if you are.

This old place is a ghost town.
This is the room where we store,
all the things we like to forget.
Welcome to my hellhole,
a place for the lost souls,
of all the hearts left here for dead.

Don’t get any closer,
don’t make any sudden moves.
Don’t look at me like that,
I ain’t no scaredy cat.
This is a house of spirits,
this town of full of ghosts,
so upright so convincingly
they don’t have to be dead, but they’re dead to me.

See the wanted sign,
that’s my face.
I’m not welcome anymore,
as if I ever was.
They plastered my name,
all over this place.
We might have to leave running,
so keep your eye on the door.

Welcome to my hellhole,

Track Name: Rules of The Dead
I'm the one who never said goodbye,
I’m the flatliner that never told you why.
I thought that I could succeed where Orpheus had failed,
But there ain’t no coming back when you’ve broken through the veil.

Love who will let you,
Don’t be afraid to,
No guarantees.

How cruel do you want to seem?
Before you finally have to go.

Can your soul be born again?

or the ending of the joke?
Do you remember remember clutching my throat
the moment your conscience broke
How about the downward spiral
or the years of denial
do you remember every time
you promised not another time?

Track Name: Mystery
I met a girl who used to dance with some flowers in her hair, barefoot in the street to a song that seemed
only she could hear.
Well, we talked all night about wrong and right,
we talked the Bible and prophecy.
She said she don’t care to what God I swear,
as long as I don’t tell her what to believe.

She said

When we know all there is to know,
and there’s nothing left to comprehend,
when you think you found what you’re looking for,
I believe it’s time you think again.
Don’t try so hard to understand,
the things you don’t need your eyes to see.
For knowing it all ain’t part of the plan,
so just enjoy the mystery.

I met an old man who used to laugh,
at some gag I couldn’t hear,
out loud and big, while he took a swig,
with some joker that wasn’t there.
Well, he lectured me on our frailty,
the difference between man and divine,
so don’t waste your breath talking ’bout your death,
you’ll live longer than you are alive.

He said

When we know all there is to know,
and there’s nothing left to comprehend,
when you think you found what you’re looking for,
I believe it’s time you think again.

We were chosen for this land
We are elected to be perfected
Our conscience clean as Pilate's hands.

So watch out for drunken sailors
so Watch out for dirty girls,
But if you let me please,

Wonders of the Invisible World.

I know the monsters that you’ve dreamt
I’ve seen the hands that torment
But this is all part of all the plan divine,

They found your car
by the lake
but you were gone

And all the news they
showed your face
and everyone
called out your name.

I know that something in you died that day
Sometimes we all just need to run away

And I heard them say

Sometimes life
imitates art
sometimes you need
a brand new start
after it all just breaks apart
when you need some time to heal your heart

I know that something in you died that day
Sometimes we all just need to run away

And I heard them say

Can you read my mind?
do you know what I mean?
Can you tell what I'm thinking?
Because there's nothing clean.
You’re inside my head,
it’s just a bottleneck,
these words don’t need to be said,
like a Zener Deck.

I felt you on the edges, taking a peek inside,
Seeing a couple stick figures making wavy lines.
You don’t need to be psychic to unlock,
my intentions are as clear as circle, a cross, a star, and a box

Can you read my mind?

Can you tell what I'm thinking?
Because there's nothing clean.
You’re inside my head,

Searching for an answer
A paranormal sleuth
So many questions
But where can I find the truth?

I won't be frightened, I won't be weak
It's only in my mind
My dread will be abolished
by the evidence that I find

I'll keep on looking
listening, feeling for a sign
Power in the knowledge,
Whether sinister or divine

My dread will be abolished

Track Name: Another Skin
Wake up,
Someone's calling you,
You hear the sound, but you forget your name,
cuz everything has changed.

And every second's a page from the wrong story,
and every breath is unusual air.
You're living a different life,
and it's wholly unfair.

Under another skin,
and right before your eyes
everything begins again,
something survives.

The words,
come out differently,
you speak out loud,
but the meaning’s wrong,
there’s somewhere else you belong.

You’re moving inside an alien's body,
and every feeling a foreign caress,
a stranger in a stranger land,
who can’t shake the separateness.

Under another skin,
and right before your eyes
everything begins again,
something survives.
Track Name: Shoot For The Stars
Not even that long ago,
you could look up to the sky and know,
that’s a place you could go.
Daydreaming of astronauts,
We weren’t just happy with what we got,
On this pale blue dot.

Back in my day, child, it didn’t seem so far.
Back in my day, child, we used to shoot for the stars.

Never thought that we’d still be here
Fifty years on, still stuck to the ground
and we’re still earthbound.
If the world has changed so much,
and those old dreams are out of touch, don’t you budge.
Just keep looking up.

Back in my day, child, it didn’t seem so far.
Back in my day, child, don’t forget Mars,
Back in my day child, or flying cars,
In my day, child, we used to shoot for the stars.
Track Name: Fool
I’ve been hurt more times than I can count
I’ve had my head smashed in and my guts pulled out.
I’ve been cheated on, mistreated some, my heart held for ransom,
I’m the jerk, that piece of work, who just can't figure out
that
this big bad world is cruel,
so bury your soul deep and they never can hurt you,
I know that it might be uncool, but
I ain't got time to tow the line on trust issues.

I’ve got a body made for working,
I’ve got a heart made for abuse,
I’ve got a penchant for fast living,
and I’m stretching out my youth.
I’ve got a mind to keep on loving,
Don’t care the ugly truth,
Well we’ve got all the cynics we need,
so I’d rather play the fool.

I’ve been wrong more times than you’d believe,
I’ve had my faith tested, my kindness deceived,
I’ve been betrayed and led astray and the victim of foul play,
and you might mock this laughingstock who won’t concede naivety,
because
I know this big bad world is cruel,
and if you bury your soul deep then they never can hurt you,
well I might sound just like a tool but
I ain't got time to tow the line on trust issues.

I’ve got a body made for working,
I’ve got a heart made for abuse,

Track Name: Got Me In His Claws
I been so low,
because I got too high.
I begged and screamed,
and pleaded to make deals for my life.

I have surrendered,
to the Lord on high,
and I’ve made my peace with him,
I’ve made my sacrifice.

That sacrifice,
when I thought life,
could get no harder,
coming down on me,
I made every guarantee.

That I’d cut out all my lying,
I’d stop cheating on my tax,
I’d stop the smoking, midnight toking,
and start going to Mass.
I’ve had enough of these lost weekends,
All the trouble I used to cause,
Too close to my fate, I’m going straight,
The Devil got me in his claws.
That Devil got me in his claws.
That Devil got me in his claws.

Everything that you believe,
all you control,
everything you’ve achieved,

you can make your peace,
you can sacrifice.

could get no harder,
coming down on me,
I made every guarantee.

Track Name: The Wilderness of Almost Was and Never Were
What happened to the kids who got lost in the blur,
The wilderness of almost was and never were.
You used to plan, you used to scheme,
We used to curse the old regime,
What did you surrender. for legal tender,
Was your price more than your dreams?

When they come to you to sell out,
Just promise to put up a fight,
And realize you’ll never be so close as you are tonight.

Drowning in your memory, you can drown right in your hurt,
The wilderness of almost was and never were.

Track Name: Devil's Triangle
You see a light,
when you’re in the deep,
just on the surface,
somewhere above your reach.
But you’re too far, to be found.

If you wanna meet the Devil, you have to go down.

It’s not a Kraken that will sink your Battleship
You could get snared by a Calypso and not even know when you’ve been whipped,
Triangle.
It’s not the sharks who will devour when you drown,
It’s the chicken of the sea that will pull you all the way down.

your eyes stay open as you suffocate
gutted and gorged upon.

Track Name: In Plain Sight
I’ll sit and listen to the worst things in your life
I'll be crying on the outside but I don’t care about your plight
Looking side to side to find a mask to emulate
when the camouflage wears off, you’ll be the first to run away

The wheels spin and the lies begin
I'll confabulate a feeling
to learn the tricks I need to fix
to keep everyone believing that

Nothing’s broken in my emotion
I must be cracked cuz I’m not right
Some kind of monster just an impostor
a freak that's hiding in plain sight

Observing close and keeping notes, of the right way to behave,
To infiltrate and analyze, maybe one day invade.
I’ll shake your hand, I’ll nod my head, pretend to give a damn,
I’ll respond to every cue, but never understand.

The wheels spin and the lies begin
I'll confabulate a feeling

a freak that's hiding in plain sight

and I’m left talking to a shadow?
I’m doing my best don't you know to be brave
Do you feel me walking on your grave?
Do you feel me walking on your

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Show me a sign that I’m not crazy too

The only faith I ever had was you.

A cross and holy water, sprinkled on somebody’s daughter,

All these decades past and I’m still holding fast
cuz the only faith I ever had was you.

Track Name: Behind The Curtain
For a whole generation
he was the inspiration
stoked the imagination
of the Monster nation

Didn’t buy predestination
or a soul relocation,
No belief in Heaven,
or any reincarnation

But at his end of aspiration
his human cancellation
they think he’s playing tricks
afterdeath communication

So they put this complication
under examination
and now they give the Afterlife
reconsideration

Please pay attention to the man behind the curtain,
Because he’s somewhere in between,
Please pay attention to the man behind the curtain who,
you’ll hear from the dark side of the screen.

So this famous monster
is now an Atheist in Heaven.
And he’s still having fun
and he’s still making puns

He said he would come back someday
that he would communicate
but no one could anticipate
his paranormal wordplay

And if you think they’re cracking,
they lost their comprehension,
That there ain’t no action,
no final destination.

These guys have a conviction,
that his spirit is still living,
It’s really their Uncle Forry,
Scientists believe the story.

Please pay attention to the man behind the curtain,
Because he’s somewhere in between,
Please pay attention to the man behind the curtain who,
you’ll hear from the dark side of the screen.
Track Name: Flesh and Blood
Why did you let them take control.
of your mind?
Why couldn’t you see the could burst,
in your eye?

And I won’t believe
in a love that deceives
and I won’t waste my faith foolishly
on cosmic rays
and mysterious ways
that never gave a damn for us anyway

And heaven and earth can fade away
and the mountains might fall
and all the powers to which we pray
might never answer our call

Flesh and blood is all we’ve got to survive
and I know
There but for grace or lack of, go I

You dreamed of Hell but you forgot
to look inside
The gravity of your hate weighs you down,
so why don’t you fight?

And the tragedy of humanity
is to know our shells might be empty
and do you feel no shame
for all these lives in vain?
Who would kill themselves just to honor his Name?

And heaven and earth can fade away
and the mountains might fall
and all the powers to which we pray
might never answer our call

Eloi Eloi
Lama sabachthani
Eloi Eloi
Lama sabachtahni

And heaven and earth can fade away
and the mountains might fall
and all the powers to which we pray
might never answer our call

Flesh and blood is all we’ve got to survive
and I know
There but for grace or lack of, go I.
Track Name: Emma
Emma, it's time to go to bed,
Tonight you share your room with your mama's friend
It was a quiet and peaceful night in 1874,
Oh Emma, you weren't supposed to be on the floor.
Oh Emma, you weren't supposed to be on the floor.

Emma, I just pray that you never opened your eyes,
And I just wish you gave that bastard some kind of fight.
Cut down by the axe of some no good druggist,
Oh Emma, you died in the Texas dust.
Oh Emma, you died in the Texas dust.

Faust saw what he did and he ran terrified,
But before that he took his blade to his wife's eyes,
And she said she never saw who committed the crime.

Oh Emma, the wrong place at the wrong time.
Sorry Emma, the wrong place at the wrong time.

But he never got that far.
But he never got that far.

Emma, I hope you got your revenge,
That you're the one guarding his soul's prison.
They say he's trapped forever and he'll never leave the room.
Oh Emma, sometimes we still hear you,
But Emma, sometimes we still hear you.
Track Name: Ready To Believe You
When I was a boy I had the terrors and they came every night
I lied awake, so terrified, never daring to close my eyes.
I thought that I would be at the their whim for the rest of my days,
until I saw a flick that said I didn’t have to be afraid.

I didn’t have to be afraid.

I was hoping for a sequel but I guess I’ll just have to take a reboot,
I don’t care that it’s all women and if you do, you’re just a tool.
I can’t believe it’s 0-16 and this stuff is finally cool.
I wanna meet a girl who says that “there’s no Dana only Zuul"

There is No Dana Only Zuul.

From Samhain to the Bogey man, they fought nightmares across this land,
From Devil Dogs to demi-gods, they never worried about the odds,
Got no time for the EPA or their silly bureaucrats - they hate that.

They hate that.

Slimer was funny when it started but that class five free roamer just got old quick,
So did the junior busters, hey who wants to see a bunch of kids?
Gozer was a traveler and he traveled his butt right into a beatdown,
And then they showed that prehistoric b how we do things downtown,
How we do things downtown.

Choose the form of your destructor,
Would you rather be a cynic or a fool?
Choose the form of your destructor, baby.
Because if you don’t, they will choose for you.

And the man said who you gonna call?

We’re ready to believe you.
Track Name: Dead Man
All the years that I spent waiting for a chance,
all the hopes projected onto you,
sitting on the bench, watching someone else,
living the life I was supposed to.

A thousand different scenes all played out in my brain,
of this moment and how it happens and what it means.
And now it's happening, and everything has changed.
but sometimes your eyes stare past me.

The part of me I thought that won you,
never had a chance,
you're in love with a dead man.
the thought of him that always haunts you,
Slipping right through my hands,
You're in love with a dead man,

Old t-shirts that get worn around the house,
Old pictures supposed be thrown out.
Why do you love someone who cannot love you back?
Why is it always better living in the past?

All these memories are past their sell-by date,
and a ghost still roams throughout our halls,
A dream is always sweeter than our present state.
And second place is better than nothing at all.

The part of me I thought that won you,
never had a chance,
you're in love with a dead man.
the thought of him that always haunts you,
You're slipping through my hands,
You're in love with a dead man,
Track Name: Sulfur
it was the sulfur
it was the brimstone
it was the night
it was the blackness
it was the madness
when you lost your sight

there are moments that matter
there are fixed points in time
and what you do right here
will be with you to the end of your life.

be careful what you burn
and all you’ll taste is the sulfur
of how right you thought you were
be careful what you burn
and all you’ll taste is the sulfur
of how right you thought you were

it was the sulfur
it was the anger
it was the wrath
it was the vengeance
the lack of penance
you strayed from the path
Track Name: Mercy of Myth
There is a Hell we hold within,
you can't forgive yourself for the things you did.
A hairshirt and a bottle,
won't let you forget.

Consequently, rear entry
is all that we're left with.
We camouflage our sabotage,
and lay at the mercy of myth.

And culpa's even worse than Crack,
You don't need a sheepskin to know that,
even after cutting, nailbiting, hair pulling and spiting.
All your shame is still toxic.

Consequently, rear entry
is all that we're left with.
We camouflage our sabotage,
and lay at the mercy of myth.

I'll abandon ship on this guilt trip,
and let it drown,
Need some clemency from self pity,
and burn it out.
Track Name: Schadenfreude
There’s just a little part of me that’s happy I’m not you.
You know the Germans have a word for it, of course they do.
It’s the speeding ticket for the other guy,
It’s the coffee spilled on your dumb boss’ tie,
Reality television when some dumb chick cries.
Uh oh boo hoo.

Why do I like when shit happens to you?
Why do I get a little wood when you get screwed?
Just a bit of bad luck that puts me in a good mood.
Oh yes it do, because I like when shit happens to you.

It’s nothing personal you see,
it’s just the relief when I thank God that it’s not me.
I know I come off like a mean-spirited twit,
but I bet one time you were thinking it.
It’s on Facebook where you complain about your friends,
It’s the morning where your hair is all split ends,
it’s the fact that you have to wear Depends.
When you just wanna quit, I kinda love it.

Why do I like when shit happens to you?
Why do I get a little wood when you get screwed?
Just a bit of bad luck that puts me in a good mood.
Oh yes it do, because I like when shit happens to you.
Track Name: Captured In Limestone
Just what happened here
Some kind of psychic scar
That causes you to appear
Come back from where you are

Trapped in a record
Etched in an earthen cleft
That's why you've never left
Trapped in a record

Stories yet unknown
captured in limestone

It's in the walls
in the roads
in the rocks
that surround me

Someone is here
or was before
I must have stepped into a dream

Here's where you left your mark
And some residual trace
Whatever you endured
Has preserved your face

Trapped in a record
Etched in an earthen cleft
That's why you've never left
Trapped in a record

History unknown
captured in limestone

It's in the walls
in the roads
in the rocks
that surround me

Someone is here
or was before
I must have stepped into a dream
Track Name: Wow!
Just how long can you stare?
At the emptiness inside a prayer,
An ear peeled to every band,
to hear a loneliness that just expands.

All the space between us is so black,
Patience just a virtue that I lack,
Until the void finally calls back,
I'll scream into the night alone.

Wow, I heard you.
How, where'd you go?
Now, I'll follow,
so please phone home.

Now the long wait can begin,
(I heard you),
when will you show yourself again
(where'd you go?)
It's funny how just one time,
(I'll follow),
Can forever alter your life,
(please phone home).

All the space between us is so black
Patience just a virtue that I lack

I'll scream into the night alone

so please phone home.
Wow.
Track Name: Ghost With Your Face
You walk through that door at 5 every single day
You've done all the right things and you're doing what they say,
but you're defeated, cheated, dragged behind, feeling like a slave.
you might have the picket fence but you've got no time to play.

I seen the end my friend, I've seen what you get,
There's millions of us dead, they just don't know it yet.
The best minds of my generation wasted on the race
going mighty fast, but going to no place.

We trade the best years of our lives for a never-ending chase
And one day you'll wake up to find all you are, is a ghost, with your face

Well we all want to run away, we all want to break out,
It's the quiet desperation Henry Thoreau talked about,
But we got to be real, we signed the deal, and it's not as easy as they say,
It's gonna take a movement if we want to bust these chains.

I seen the end my friend, I've seen what you get,
There's millions of us dead, they just don't know it yet.

The mob is out for blood.

Hail Satan!
Hail Satan!

Vengeance is mine!

And you can have it anyway.

Let's play the game where you were never born.

Feeling alone
Hoping for a shot,
And my dreams

The signs that I'm throwing
Well, they just ain't going through

You're a mystery, always in the shadows,
You never gave me, the chance to show

the beauty you'll find
when you decide to open your heart

But you gotta ask right from the start

Who wants love?
Who wants someone to hold them tight?
Who wants love?
Someone to be there through the night,
Who wants love?
And I'm gonna give it to you,
to make this dream come true.

And I'm gonna give it to you.
Track Name: Vote Cthulhu
There's a lot of people saying
That they don't like the candidates
They think the results are all rigged
They think their vote will go to waste
But there's a choice you can support
If you feel your view is underserved
There's a sleeper that lies dreaming
Who’ll give us just what we deserve

I'm voting Cthulhu,
Because it's time we all came clean
I'm calling Cthulhu
Apocalypse is what I mean
I'm voting Cthulhu,
To wake the Elder Gods themselves,
If you're gonna waste your vote, well why not waste everyone else?

On the left or on the right,
It won't matter where you stand,
When you're driven mad from fear,
You just won't care in a wasteland.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

I'm voting Cthulhu,
Because it's time we all came clean
I'm calling Cthulhu
Apocalypse is what I mean

Track Name: Jesus Is An Alien
Two thousand years ago they came down from beyond
they found an innocent to plant an inhuman spawn
Pretending they were angels, with authority from
creating a superbeing, but at least he preached some love.

Jesus is an alien, with DNA from space.
a human/ET hybrid born on Christmas Day.
Jesus is an alien, from otherworldly seed,
an extraterrestrial plot to harvest our belief.

UFOs all over the globe,
Jesus is an alien.
Tis the season for anal probes,
Jesus is an alien,
He came to earth to sermonize
Jesus is an alien,
Mary was in vitro fertilized,
Jesus is an alien.

Over our rooftops watching us
pretending to be St. Nickolas
pacify our species is their ploy
controlling our children with some toys
Abduction, grab us while we sleep
Missing time, people think we’re crazy,
Over our rooftops, zap zap zap
Wiping our minds with just a snap.

Jesus is an alien, bred with human genes,
to fight the the Prince of Darkness, His interdimensional enemy,
a king of kings to rule us, but we nailed him to a tree.
He’s half-earthling and half a spaceman, Half a spaceman,
He is half an earthling, half a spaceman.
Track Name: Gloomsinger
When the whistling of a thousand tongues draws near
When a name will find you once you only hear
On the tracks and impending, never resting, never ending,

Seeing you wherever you try to hide,
A friendly voice, knock at the door, a bloody sack, flesh and gore,
When the vision of a thousand eyes grows nigh.

Noble of purpose
righteous undead
Go forth and campaign

Transcend the wooden overcoat

Called by a master
a duty to perform.

Tonight we justify the crime
And we’ll discharge our duties from on high
Tonight we justify the crime
Dispassionate and cold
never to grow old
Once we bare our teeth we have to bite

Honor and bloodshed,
for the revenant patrol.
a binding magic,
when a sword captures a soul.

Tonight we justify the crime
And we’ll discharge our duties from on high
Tonight we justify the crime
Dispassionate and cold
never to grow old
Once we bare our teeth we have to bite

I’m gonna jump from Twenty Thousand Feet
Finally read all of War and Peace
Ride a wave right down to the beach,
and get pulled over racing a Trans Am.

I’ll keep my chin up like a champion,
Get my teeth knocked out in the Octagon
Try to paddle down the Amazon,
Then maybe I will finally understand
the meaning of I think therefore I am

I wanna go out as a man with no regret,
but I’m scared to death I must confess,
That in the end I won’t recognize myself
Alive with half a consciousness
That in the end I’ll fail The Mirror Test.

I’m gonna make love like I’m Bad Company,
Go out drinking like Charles Bukowski,
Karate kick like Bruce Lee
and then go bungee jump right off the Hoover Dam.

I’m gonna take on Everest,
Hold on 8 seconds like in the Wild West
I’ll even leave my home without American Express
And maybe I can finally be free
of all the fears that were just paralyzing me

I wanna go out as a man with no regret,
but I’m scared to death I must confess,
That in the end I won’t recognize myself
I didn’t settle just for less,
Alive with half a consciousness
Well I ain't gonna second guess
So in the end I don’t fail The Mirror Test.
Track Name: To Accept Is Not Defeat
Scrape the skin 'til you see blood
Rub the flesh until its sore
Bang your head against the wall til your brains fall on the floor.

Cry til your eyes are red
til you find a moment of clarity
That this striving beyond surviving just more futility.

And the more that I struggle
the more I seem to ache,
And the more that I struggle
the more I seem to break.

I surrender.
I throw myself before your feet.
I’ve tested every limit,
To accept is not defeat.

The tighter that you grip,
The looser that you hold,
And all that you have lost, you’ll find when you let go.

For the more that I struggle
the more I seem to ache,
For the more that I struggle
the more I seem to break.

I surrender.
I throw myself before your feet.
I’ve tested every limit,
To accept is not defeat.

I surrender.
I throw myself before your feet.
I’ve tested every limit,
To accept is not defeat.
Track Name: The Flood
A subtle change and your head spins
flip of the switch, it all makes sense
an arrogance you can pretend,
To reduce it to just elements.

Synapses fire
with chemistry
But we can break up
reality
to share far more
Than flesh and blood
A new way of knowing
Here comes the flood

When you’re in the space that’s in between
You can redefine what you believe
No time to waste
no place to judge
Better get ready for the flood.

Look for who’s pulling your strings,
Are you just defined by your things?
Embrace what this knowledge brings,
And this is where the balance swings.

Synapses fire
with chemistry
But we can break up
reality
to share far more
Than flesh and blood
New way of knowing
Here comes the flood

When you’re in the space that’s in between
You can redefine what you believe
No time to waste
No place to judge
Better get ready for the flood.
Better get ready for the flood.
