Track Name: Welcome To The World
Welcome to the world. You might have some questions to ask. Like what is life? And how long will it last?

Welcome to the world. Oh it is a scary place oh it is a scary place. Welcome to the world. Oh it's such a scary place oh it's such a scary place. Welcome to the world. Oh it is a scary place oh it is a scary place. Welcome to the world.

Will I be like my mother? Will I act like my father? And if you say I will, then why even bother? Why even bother?

Will I ever be with her? Will I ever be like him? Will I ever be with her? Will I ever be like him? Will I ever be like them? Will I ever be like you? I'll never be like you.
Track Name: Dogblood
I measured time by the webs of a widow. I searched the fences for Marc Bolan's ghost. I gotta death wish that's just out of season. So let's be our own beasts and do as we please.

Do as we please.

Dogblood, dogblood in my veins.

The artists who want us to love them are cowards to sell us a vision and claim it's not ours, to swear that this warm wine will always sustain us, the promise of a lifetime that will through the ages.

Dogblood, dogblood in my veins

Life's got weeks like a skull's got teeth and you're gonna miss 'em when they're gone. Life's got weeks like a skull's got teeth. A part of the whole that will tear you apart. The marrow. The bone.

Dogblood, dogblood in my veins.

Do as we please.
Track Name: They're Getting Nervous
Some kids are dancing like seizure victims. Some kids are laughing between the songs. They're getting nervous with dried up questions glued to their tongues and all made of cotton.

How long until you whisper that no one remembers me. A smile and a t-shirt from an old memory, the one you bought because you thought it made you unique will end up in a landfill on a busted TV.

They're getting nervous with dried up questions and all made of cotton. How many houses do you need to live happily? Consume the urge to hide your words and yell violently. Reside yourself to private weekly freakout retreats. Forgive the sins of men who trespass unknowingly.

I really want it, so give it to me.
Track Name: Barking At The Door
I don't wanna live in a human zoo. Baby, you know I'm too wild to live in a fucking cage with you.

Can't you see me when I'm crawling on the floor? Can't you hear me when I'm barking at the door? Lately I don't wanna be here anymore. Cause there's nothing to do in this fucking zoo. I'm always having to turn tricks into treats. I had to turn a few tricks just to eat. I'm no longer proud you've defeated me but I'll keep coming back because you're feeding me.

I don't wanna live in a human zoo. Baby, you know I'm to wild to live in a fucking cage with you.

Shape it up because you're losing value and if you're worth nothing they'll put a bullet in you. I don't hunt and I don't gather. So I don't know if my life matters. Is this real life to work, eat, and sleep? My bowl is full; it's the American dream. Comfort is nice but I just wanna feel something. I wanna feel the blood as it runs down my chin.

If I had freedom would I know what to do with it? When I see an open door? Will I know to run through it?

This ain't no concrete jungle.
Track Name: I Can't Breathe
Put your hands up, they'll still shoot and if you lay down they'll give you the boots. Who are they really working for? Cops are traitors to the class war.

How could people do this to other people? I can't breathe. Cops are scum.

So what the fuck is wrong with this nation? If killer cops just get a vacation, why would they ever stop? How could you want to be a cop?

How could people do this to other people? I can't breathe. Cops are scum.
Track Name: Headed For Something
We're flying! Can you feel it? We're marked for dead. Full speed ahead.

Headed for something. It will leave nothing.

It's hopeless just wait for death. It's coming soon so hold your breath.

Headed for something. It will leave nothing.

It's almost here. Can you feel the heat? Look to the sky. Kiss your ass goodbye.

Headed for something. It will leave nothing.

We all know the time is coming. The world will have a painless death. Can't you see the sky is burning? When it's done there will be nothing left. So disobey laws, don't pray to god. Live your life; drink and riot. Let's take a twirl on a terminal world. There's nothing we can do. Headed for something. It won't leave nothing. No hope for me and you.
Track Name: Beatless
Old sage never wanna retire. Rolling on the floor. Crying out for more, "How soon will I die in the fire?" Pacing by the door. What do I wait for?

A moment, an hour of time, all the hollow beats before I die.

Beatless.

My id pours into desire. Roar ego roar. What do I wait for? Spend it all, burn the ego alive. Pacing by the door. What do I wait for?

A moment, an hour of time, all the hollow beats before I die.

Beatless.
Track Name: Tune In
The news, it’s my favorite show. The news, it’s just mind control. The news, it’s not really information. The news, it’s for your entertainment.

Be sure to tune in for the chaos. Lives will be lost.

Line em all up just to see them all fall. The war is on the TV and it’s right down the hall. Sit back relax and grab a snack it is my favorite thing. The news is just a show about a world that’s gone insane.

The news, it’s my favorite show. The news, it’s just mind control. Tonight at 9. Chaos lives
Track Name: Status Tension
Some people take until there ain't nothing left. That's why some people are starving to death. They want more they still want more. They want more they still want more. Some people would rather see you die than to pay you something dignified. They want more they still want more. They want more they still want more.

Every thing in this country is a scam. From college to tickets all part of the plan to take it all and leave us scraping by. I really feel it and I cannot lie.

Status tension, can you feel it? Status tension, I can feel it.

Some people think they should own everything. I want to see these people drained. Let's take it all let's take it all. Let's take it all let's take it all. Some people need to be taught a lesson. I want to take every last possession. Let's take it all let's take it all.

Every thing in this world is a scam. From prisons to wars all part of the plan to take it all and leave us scraping by. I really feel it and I cannot lie.

Status tension can you feel it? Status tension, I can feel it. Let's take it all. Let's kill them all.
Track Name: I'm A Flower
I am a flower. I grew from the earth. Someday I’ll die and I’ll turn back into the dirt. I would have known if I could have grown and I could have grown if you would have left me alone. I’m a flower.

The rain couldn’t make it through the trees. The sun never shines down on me. Now I’m left with withered leaves and no one cares to believe.

I would have known if I could have grown and I could have grown if you would have left me alone. I’m a flower.

The rain couldn't make it through the trees and the sun never shines down on me. Now I’m left with withered leaves and no one cares to believe.

I’m not who I’m supposed to be. Product of my surroundings. I am a flower I grew from the earth. Someday I’ll die and I’ll turn back into the dirt. I could have grown. I could have grown. I could have been better if I could have grown.
Track Name: Life
Am I always gonna be like this? I chew away my finger tips. I don't want pills but I don't want this. I'm just trying to come to grips with life inside my head, it's not so good. I'm feeling sick, I'm feeling down and I'm wanting out.

Now I'm getting nervous, now I'm inside my head.

Sometimes I'm filled with emotions other times I'm just going through the motions. Now I'm getting nervous, now I'm inside my head.

Is it always gonna be like this? It's always gonna be like this? Life inside my head, it's not so good. I'm feeling sick, I'm feeling down and I'm wanting out. Now I'm getting nervous.
Track Name: You'll Never Guess What I'll Do Next
All the dark days and eulogizing through chipped incisors. Reciprocating the world at arm's length, the blood inside of me.

You'll never guess what I'll do next.

Accelerator, flash the red light we never live by. My blood's on fire. I spark a lighter and burn the righteous.

All raw nerves and expectations of what experience says I'm chained to. The consequences of cracking bones and rolling fire.

You'll never guess what I'll do next.

You never know it's not enough.
The consequences of cracking bones and rolling fire.
Track Name: Vatican Ratline
Running through fields and streams as armies crawl through the night. Gives a man time to reflect on the choices that shape his life. The blood and the shit and the fleas. Act dead to stay alive.

I need a ratline, take me to the Vatican. Vatican ratline.

Priest takes a man by the hand and leads him to the embassy. Never tell others your rank or why you came, leave the talking to me. No one's ever given a damn, so long as the money was there. No one was ever heard from again. Lay low in Cordoba my friend.

Zazi scum. Shit of the earth. How did they make it? You can blame the Catholic church.

Wheels hit the tarmac at dawn, hits the pool, then he hits up the bar. A man with a Benz from the church brings a bed and a job and a car. The man from Munich they say, is so kind for this day and age. No one ever asks him his rank and you know he likes it that way.
Track Name: Modern Ghost
The living are the haunted and I'm a modern ghost.
Radio, sing to me from your distant coast.

Subtle as Bukowski I answer blood for blood.
Radio, sing to me until my work is done.

And I'm waiting for the frequency with pen and pad and melody.
Your money keeps making more money.

The hour of your voices. I kiss the yellow moon.
Radio sing to me. Dials are tuned.

The vessel with no meaning; the message I receive.
Radio sing to me. I'm still waiting.

And I'm waiting for the frequency with pen and pad and melody.
Your money keeps making more money.
Track Name: Eat The Sun
Oh, lion in the sky, what do you have for me today? Way up in the sky, above where the children play.

Eat the sun.

Please don't go back to the underworld, we don't want darkness all around. Please don't go back to the underworld, Orion's arm couldn't hold you down.

You give us a new day, so now your will be done. God is a celestial body and I know that you are the one. I'm staring straight at the sun, I'm staring straight up at the sun. I want to eat the sun.

Take me with you to the underworld, I don't want darkness all around. Take me with you to the underworld, Orion's arm couldn't hold us down.

I want to burn in you, I want to live inside of you. Eat the sun. Banish the moon.
Track Name: Cut Out Your Tongue
I will never walk to earth, I will never cross the sea, 'cause everywhere I go is somebody else's property. I will never see the world unless I want to serve a tour. Living in this great nation, run on the blood of the poor.

Cut out your tongue, cut off your feet, cut off your hands, then you'll be free to do what you can.

I'm chained to my existence, I'm chained to my job, I never wanted to be here anyway. Nobody cares what I have to say.

Cut our your tongue, cut off your feet, cut off your hands, then you'll be free to do what you can.

I should never leave my home, this world just isn't mine to roam. And what gives them the right to say that it's theirs and it is not mine. I will never walk to earth, I will never cross the sea, it's somebody else's property.
