Watch all the way through to the end crawl For the message they send Keep awake for the epilogue To see who's alive at the end When your insides are in pieces there is no inner peace Too much of not enough suspended disbelief The new muse begs for a song And it's all right I've got all night to get it wrong Cut to the close up, embrace for impact Plot holes cut deep my friend Cross dissolve it all fade out to black and now Won't get schooled again Gently fed force perspectives all by electronic feed Tossed out bits no one's buying All wants mutate to needs The new muse begs for a song And it's all right I've got all night to get it wrong And it's in you and it is strong Hold me tight we've got till light to get along

Stabacab 02:39
I heard loud and clear a voice from on high Deafening and terrible it was a distant cry The deity required blood be shed by innocents Jesus, Jehovah, Allah and Shiva demand obedience No one, no thing will sway me from my task Nose to the grindstone puts the edge on the axe I don't wanna face it I don't even know if I can I don't wanna face it I don't even know if I can Infidels must pay the price, the currency is red Divintiy rejects their souls but welcomes their dead Eternity of paradise awaits when I am through Another one will take my place there's so much work yet to do The axe begs to grind again and I do too I don't wanna face it I don't even know if I can I don't wanna face it I don't even know if I can

You maintained the element of surprise When you laid out your argument And retracted your affections I surmise that I failed your experiments I don't begrudge your bureaucratic habits And your judgement I will not besmirch But I still question your conclusions 'cause the findings you found, I find still hurt Only the good stays with me But you remember only tears Your good judgement to desert me You were wise beyond your beers So you put two and two together You crunched the numbers in your head Something added up to less than murder But somehow the love was still found dead You never made your decisions lightly You led by your intuition Because my chivalry was far from (k)nightly You deduced it was the logical end Only the good stayed with me And you remember only tears Your good judgement to forget me You were wise beyond your beers

Place your children on the altar Goodbye mothers, hello fodder Blood for a low interest fee At the Eagle's request you'd give it for free Why you revere such a bird? You feed it red blood and it gives you white turds And your babies may be broken But the Eagle has spoken And now it's all alright And your babies may be broken But the Eagle has spoken And now it's all alright Swap your future for tiny baubles Simple rousing all the rabble Blood for a low interest fee At the Eagle's request you'd give it for free Why you revere such a bird? You feed it red blood and it gives you white turds And your babies may be broken But the Eagle has spoken And now it's all alright But your baby may be broken And the Eagle has spoken And so it's now all alright

When I feel this river roll beneath me It's not the destination but the ride For I know I will be floating somewhere And there's ice cream on the other side As you drift you'll take in all the faces And so you don't mind to give away your smiles And in this sweet, short life we all must learn some patience Enjoy the queue 'cause it goes on for miles It's a winding path that leads up to the on ramps And a straighter route you may never find Well it's the bends and turns that really work to shape us These close encounters of another kind

Other Way 03:31
Stay on your side Let the waves come to life And sing out all they know There's a dream down in a hole That means nothing no more Is that what you wanna be A new philosophy On mountain high Think of help You will find The pain is dead If you run away it can't come easy You gotta pay There's no other way Let go what trips your mind And the pain you keep inside I wanna be your key and set you free There's a dream down in a hole That means nothing no more Is that what you wanna be A new philosophy On mountain high Think of help You will find The pain is dead If you run away it can't come easy You gotta pay There's no other way There's a dream down in a hole That means nothing no more Is that what you wanna be A new philosophy On mountain high Think of help You will find The pain is dead If you run away it can't come easy You gotta pay There's no other way

How can you not choke On the deceptive words spoke And this feast of lies Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time Cough up your next lung With a rebuke from no one Spout your ratings and size Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time Take hook and sinker Just you keep blinkered In a daze gone high Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time Do it With your feelings As you do it with your pride Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time How can you not choke On the deceptive words spoke And this feast of lies Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time So shout out your next lung Rebuked by no one Spout your ratings and size Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time Take hook and sinker Just you keep blinkered In a daze gone high Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time Do it With your feelings As you do it with your pride Bitter pills bitter truths You swallow all the time

Ruthless 02:36
She tried to come out upright We turned her upside down First and last time she was ever pushed around She was cut out for it Make a hole and make it wide Decrees and proclamations garbled in her cries I don't wanna be ruthless Witness what I've become Outgunned and outnumbered Scent of blanket, rule of thumb I'd ransom the world if'n I had to pay Just to be more Ruth full each and every day The fire in her guts that hard luck can't put out She'll tell you where you can go And what you can do with yourself Ten is not enough for her tenacity And her love fills our hearts up to capacity I don't wanna be ruthless Witness what I've become Outgunned and outnumbered Scent of blanket, rule of thumb I'd ransom the world if'n I had to pay Just to be more Ruth full each and every day

It lies in wait already much too late When you let your guard down And you lie awake the thought you can't shake You never know you'll be gone You break it you bought it You got no fight left 'cause you already fought it And you seek now and you sought how To catch on to what you caught now So prophetic, don't you flaunt it Pathologies don't work like you want it I wish that we could live forever Or push this moment back a little more But time is now, now you must sever All that you knew from your life before Fed drips down a tube there's nothing you can do The hourglass of your last days Rapid flows and quick, symptoms of the sick As the fluid drains away You break it you bought it You got no fight left 'cause you already fought it And you seek now and you sought how To catch on to what you caught now So prophetic, don't you flaunt it Pathologies don't work like you want it I wish that we could live forever Or push this moment back a little more But time is now, now you must sever All that you knew from your life before Our final words on the phone Set adrift all alone You decided to let go You break it you bought it You got no fight left 'cause you already fought it And you seek now and you sought how To catch on to what you caught now So prophetic, don't you flaunt it Pathologies don't work like you want it

Enough discussion I've had enough Your shit smells Russian They called your bluff Your blank expression Your withered heart Just another toy to tear apart You gotta live with yourself But not for long And you gotta lie by yourself Covered in your wrongs You can't blame the Devil when you sold your soul Red tides are turning Your time is up The chum is churning Now the frenzy comes Blood in the water A custom shade Ersatz daughter Designer bag You gotta live with yourself But not for long And you gotta lie by yourself Covered in your wrongs You can't blame the Devil when you sold your soul

Hive Minds 02:24
The wasps came in thick as a fog Hornets rained down from above The bees blotted out the sun from the sky I'll distract the swarm away The sting is what sets you back Send dance in the drones for your next attack And the burn digs deep to stay I'll distract the swarm away A mistake to beat the nest with a stick Well, the hive minds and takes exception to it Colony, uncollapsed joins the fray And I'll distract the swarm away

Up the stairs The pair missing sights unclean Urgent call Contaminate crime scene Pharma charms Become legendary fiends Price unpaid Curtains drawn, opus answering machine This is where the Hancock Concierge Held domain Three-year reign Razed and refused by the hand of doom Now ruined tomb Extinguishers Put out party quick as light Blanket room In fallout from the fight Morning's late To forget about the night Waste laid The place paved Winter blunderland of white This is where the Hancock Concierge Held domain Three-year reign Razed and refused by the hand of doom Now ruined tomb
