Track Name: Joiner
drifting in a capsule meant to
insulate me from the deadly
nothingness of lonely outer space
this crude device is now my vessel
and soon I fear also my prison
reason lapses, time collapses
I can’t fade away
before my fate consumes me
let me set the record straight
I feel no remorse ‘cause I’m a deity now
and I’m prone to act violently

this pattern had to be
just like the other schemes
somewhere I’m nice and docile
and somewhere I’m deadly hostile

No dichotomy in this reality
we do just as we please
when the red phone rings
I want to be the one to push the button down
and I’m caught between
a singularity and the sundown

where does my allegiance lie?
I wish that I could say in God or country
but I don’t care ‘bout that since all is born to die
first there was nothing then I woke
and I’ll return from whence I came
the people would have known my name
if I could have spared any of them

No dichotomy in this reality
we do just as we please
when the red phone rings I want to be the one
to push the button down
and I’m caught between
a singularity and the sundown

there are no righteous men
just the will of evil masters
let us always trust in one who has always fooled us
Track Name: Septembers
don’t play your games with me pretty mama
I know where you’re at
I can see right through your lies
and your blue eyes tell me you’re afraid
I ain’t made to play a fool and you knew it
so you led me on
thinking you could put one by
and your blue eyes
fade into the shadows in the lamplight

do right by yourself
even if you ain’t do right by me
I don’t ask for much pretty baby
just some honesty
now that I have changed my tone you’ve decided
you don’t wanna play
fuck it
good by me thanks for the memories
walk away and fade

into the lamplight
fade to liquid drops
my city sleeps around me
melancholy muse
your sophistries enamor me
no more

don’t play your games with me pretty mama
I know where you’re at
I can see right through your lies
and your blue eyes tell me you’re afraid
I ain’t made to play a fool and you knew it
so you led me on
thinking you could put one by
and your blue eyes
fade into the shadows in the lamplight

into the lamplight
fade to liquid drops
my city sleeps around me
melancholy muse
your sophistries enamor me
no more
Track Name: A New Monster
the thoughts resound
then fade away
they sing the echoes of the day
through the hedgerows of my mind
and to the limits I can I find
I have not found an atmosphere to breathe
the lines are drawn
blood is shed
we don’t approve of this machinery

as I lay my head down
it won’t rest
mysterious fog outside my window
I can only dream at best
I slip into the sweet embrace of sleep

the thoughts resound
this dissonance
I must resist this siren’s song
through the meadows of my heart
these echoes of an age apart
are prone to resonate a pitch
that quakes apart the ground

as I lay my head down
it won’t rest
mysterious fog outside my window
I can only dream at best
I slip into the sweet embrace of sleep
Track Name: Monster Hands Strike Back
I belong
with my treacherous deity
I can’t tell who molds my thoughts
or makes me breathe
so I’m prone to act violently
so uncivil
gently nestled in the palms of

Monster Hands so warm and cozy
we dance the other scenes to death

sovereignty
there’s no jewels in this crown
just more heartache than before
a foul reward
for a maniacs war
so uncivil
gently nestled in the palms of

Monster Hands so warm and cozy
we dance the other scenes to death
hands of fate manipulate my brain
Monster Hands

passively
we surrender to tyranny
and I’ve been searching
for a more expedient way
but I see it’s absurd
I’m only human
‘til I conjure up the mythic

Monster Hands so warm and cozy
we dance the other scenes to death
hands of fate manipulate my motions
your love’s all that can save me now
Monster Hands
Track Name: Return of the Monster Starship
one day your machine won’t obey
your time running out as is mine
world wide web to them will confide
cellphones pushing buttons of their own

they’ll strike where and when as they like
we’ll try to bury them alive
I say they to us will repay
each and every single grain of sand.

for all time man has murdered mankind
our dead stain our helpless hands red
foreseen in our children's bad dreams
best schemes yielded only death machines
Track Name: The Coda
aah
ooh
ugh
aah
Track Name: The Cabin
torches raised in silent reverence
a glaze of dew like a pathetic legion
fortifies the sleeping halls of pseudo-justice
helpless without their cheap surveillance
we are desperate
we will vaporize you with the dew

melody may be good company
but joy is no use to me
not while the barons in alabaster castles rife with
vermin take all you’ll ever make and spend it on weaponry
why aren’t they feeding the hungry?
why should this suicidal race go on?

electric voodoo cabin groove
lay low while current flows
when the lights go down we’ll raze this sorry town
while juice flows through these city pipes
we’ll make it here tonight ‘til the dawn of doomsday

gravity won’t you let go of me
this orbit is insanity
I have an acquaintance, he lives on Titan... beautiful this time of year
levity may be the prophecy
they feast on naivete
hypnotized by the illusions of men dancing on the TV set

electric voodoo cabin groove
lay low while current flows
when the lights go down we’ll raze this sorry town
while juice flows through these city pipes
we’ll make it here tonight ‘til the dawn of doomsday

while juice still flows through these city walls

greener meadows
cloaked in shadows
opaque windows
sow the sorry
lay they fallow
hallowed be thy name

while juice still flows through these city veins...
Track Name: The Badness
G.C.D.I.T.F

rolling waves of thunder
disrupt the din of insects
broke and tokin’ brown brown now
they arm our children and order them to kill
what use is music to us now?

we ride
rise up and cry
the reckoning is nigh
rise up and fly away to morning light

without a breath to inhale
air so thick it drips
raining down upon you like a cold apocalypse

they all have names
as goofy as their faces
sell your failure to us now

we ride
rise up and cry
the reckoning is nigh
rise up and fly away to morning light

without a breath to inhale
air so thick it drips
raining down upon you like a cold apocalypse

thunder the harbinger
of madness we will bring
raining down upon you
raining down upon you, raining on you
down upon you, raining on you

hell a ganna bun dem
man who
betrayed us
seized our land
pays his debts with sand
kings don’t care about where celebrities stand

when it comes down to business you don’t see
we need more than affected charity
miracles only
get your entourage away from me

without a breath to inhale
air so thick it drips
raining down upon you like a cold apocalypse
thunder the harbinger
of madness we will bring
raining down upon you in the badness while we sing
raining down upon you
raining down upon you, raining on you
down upon you, raining on you
hell a ganna burn dem
who betrayed our sacred land
Track Name: Robot Infliction
the sticks are on the table
yield they buzz no more
I gaze through dirty glass
the feeling that I get right now is so wrong
this is not me

I’ve been so lonesome
since my muse packed up and gone
she does not live in substance
she stays cool while I sink down
tied up in my ego

if I could live in this device
then she would have nothing I need
and maybe then I would think twice
but I know how it feels

she called me up and said
that she was back in town
and in a fit of pride
I said that I could make it on my own
who’s so smooth now

if I could live in this device
then she would have nothing I need
and maybe then I would think twice
but I know how it feels

each time the blinds come ‘round
I try to walk away
you can not run from what is
written blood on your page
you know your blood shines brighter than green

if I could live in this device
then she would have nothing I need
and maybe then I would think twice
but I know how it feels
Track Name: Rubble and Rain
it surely came as a surprise
when the man who sold the lies
said he’d be late for dinner
and there was nothing you could do
he said he’d make your dreams come true
and you believed him

they said that morning at the store
that they don’t serve your kind no more
was this man joking
the coroner asked you for your name
he said “I’m not the one to blame,
you’re as good as dead,”

the sky has fallen
the sea is brown
they’ve turned the bunkers upside down
darling, when the sky falls on you

and then the minister of shame
insisted he was not to blame
and assumed the role of emperor
some people bowed while others spat
upon his pretentious hat
who was this man kidding?

if the sun don’t rise at dawn
if there’s no grass upon the lawn
is the situation hopeless?
all that will be always was
and it will stay that way because
it has already happened

the sky has fallen
the sea is brown
they’ve turned the bunkers upside down
darling when the sky falls on you

there’s something wrong inside my head
or is it that this mule is dead
or is it slowly dying?
there’s something deep beneath the ground
that’s waiting for the silent sound
of revolution in the air

all that was was meant to be
and that is what my book told me
I do not mean your doctrine
all that will be always was
and it will stay that way because
it has already happened

the sky has fallen
the sea is brown
they’ve turned the bunkers upside down
and the rubble and the rain
God makes you feel His pain
my darling when the sky falls on you
when the sky
falls on you
