I had an out of body experience, the other
day, her name was Jesus, and for her
everyone cried, everyone cried, everyone
cried. Try her philosophy, try her
philosophy, try her philosophy, try. You die
for her philosophy, die for her philosophy,
die her philosophy die. Crossed and terrored
ravages of architecture, lend me thy
blades, crossed and terrored ravages of
architecture, hoist around the spade. Try
her philosophy, try her philosophy, try her
philosophy, try. You die for her philosophy,
die for her philosophy, die her philosophy die.
Die.....Die......Die......Die......lie naked on the
floor and let the messiah go through our
souls, lie naked on the floor and let the
messiah go all through our souls, die, like a
mother fucker, die, like a mother fucker,
die, like a mother fucker, why, like a mother
fucker, I want to fuck my way to the garden,
cause everyone needs a mother!(fucker) Try her
philosophy, try her philosophy, try her
philosophy, try. you die for her philosophy,
die for her philosophy, die her philosophy die.
The following of Christ, the following of
Christ, the following of Christ, the
following of Christ, the falling of a Christ,

Cursed Earth, Cursed Earth,
Cursed Earth, Cursed Earth.

I will never feed off the evergreen luster of your heart 
all because we all live in the valley of the walls 
when we speak we can peak from the windows of their mouths 
to see the land the women chant as they fly up to the sun.

You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, Ever think you know why,
Know.

Books all say different things 
while people flap their yellow wings 
trying to soar by being a whore of life and almost everything 
the sheep that ran off from the herd may be dead but now¡Їs a bird 
able to fly able to die, able to fuck your mothers earth. 

You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, Ever think you know why,
Know.

On the other side, on the other side, the other side,
Do you ever try to fly, Do you ever try to fly?
Have you ever wanted to die, you ever want to die?
Don¡Їt ever try to fly, don¡Їt ever try to fly,
Don¡Їt ever try to fly, unless you leave your body on the other side,
Never try to die, you ever try to die.

Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, You never think you know why,
Know, Ever think you know why,

The kombucha mushroom people,
Sitting around all day,
Who can believe you,
Who can believe you,
Let your mother pray, (sugar)

Well I'm not there all the time you know
Some people, some people, some people,
Call it insane, yeah they call it insane, (sugar)
I play Russian roulette everyday, a man's sport,
With a bullet called life, yeah called life,(sugar)
You know that every time I try to go 
Where I really want to be, 
It's already where I am, 
Cause I'm already there¡­.(sugar)

The kombucha mushroom people,
Sitting around all day,
Who can believe you,
Who can believe you,
Let your mother pray, (sugar)

I got a gun the other day from Sako,
It's cute, small, fits right in my pocket,
Yeah, right in my pocket, (sugar)
My girl, you know, she lashes out at me sometimes,
And I just kick her, and then she's O.K. ,she's O.K.(sugar)
People are always chasing me down,
Trying to push my face to the ground,
Where all they really want to do,
Is suck out my mother fucking brains, my brains (sugar).

The kombucha mushroom people,
Sitting around all day,
Who can believe you,
Who can believe you,
Let your mother pray~,

I sit, in my desolate room, no lights, no music, 
Just anger, I've killed everyone,
I'm away forever, but I'm feeling better,
How do I feel, What do I say,
Fuck you, it all goes away, 
How do I feel, What do I say,
Fuck you, it all goes away,
How do I feel, What do I say,
In the end it all goes away,
How do I feel, What do I say,
In the end it all goes away,
How do I feel, What do I say,
In the end it all goes away,
How do I feel, What do I say,
In the end it all goes away,
How do I feel, What do I say,
In the end it all goes away,
How do I feel, What do I say,
In the end it all goes away,
In the end it all goes away,
In the end it all goes away,
In the end it all goes away,

Watching,
From a post up high,
From where you see the ships afar,
From a well trained eye,
The waves all keep on crashing by,
If you are the light post,
Then you own the working class,
But if you want the answers,
You better give a piece of ass,
Give a piece of your ass,

Warning,
Post hypnotic suggestions,
Running the ships ashore,
The orange light that follows,
Will soon proclaim itself a god,
If you point your questions,
The fog will surely chew you up,
But if you want the answers,
You better get ready for the fire,
Get ready for the fire,

The ships are multiplying day after day sir, 
And they're coming close to the shore sir, shore sir,
We need to evacuate the light post, 
It's all over, it's all over ~~
It's all over .


. . .



The piercing radiant moon,
The storming of poor June,
All the life running through her hair,

Approaching guiding light,
Our shallow years in fright,
Dreams are made winding through my head,

Through my head,
Before you know, Awake,

Your lives are open wide,
The V-chip gives them sight,
All the life running through her hair,

The spiders all in tune,
The evening of the moon,
Dreams are made winding through my head,

Through my head,
Before you know, Awake

(SOLO)

Through my head,
Before you know,
Before you know I will be waiting all awake,

Dreams are made winding through her hair,
Dreams are made winding through her hair.

Plagiarized existence exist,
Among the writers of the word,
Shake your spear at Shakespeare,
Shake your spear at Shakespeare,

Loud and noisy,
Strong refrigerators,
Gaining independence,
Gaining independence,

Stupid people do stupid things,
Smart people outsmart each other,
Then themselves, then themselves,
Then themselves, then themselves,

Take me down there,
Photographic relapse,
People feeding frenzy,
The devil is so lovely,

(Operatic)

My blue moon rivets in exits,
Forewarned customary spirits,
By myself, by myself,
By myself, by myself,

Take me down there,
Photographic relapse,
People feeding frenzy,
The devil is so lovely,

Take me down there,
Photographic relapse,
People feeding frenzy,

. . .



The phoenix he helped create,
Out of control boy without a dad,
Shot the gun that startled my life,
While I drove home with a forty-five. 

Friends for years images in red,
Blew off his own mother fucking head, 
confidence, death, insecurity,
men fall unrealized,
Unrealized, unrealized.

Making a decision of death,
while everyone around you pled,
Now you fly in peace,
I hope, my friend,
A man can't avoid what he's meant to do, 
when he's meant to do it,
Even if he doesn't really want to,
My memories are of fun and friendship,
of weakness within the strength of youth,
For reasons undefined, reasons undefined,
Reasons undefined, reasons undefined.

Friends for years images in red,
Blew off his own mother fucking head,
Confidence, death, insecurity,
Men fall unrealized.

Don't you realize
Evil, lives in the mother-fucking skin,
Don't you realize,
Evil, lives in the mother-fucking skin.

Unrealized, unrealized. 

Don't you, realize, evil
Lives in the mother fucking skin,
Don't you, realize, that evil, 
Lives in the mother fucking.

Dark is the light,
The man you fight,
With all your prayers, incantations,
Running away, a trivial day,
Of judgement and deliverance,
To whom was sold, this bounty soul,
A gentile or a priest ?
Who victored over, the Seljuks,
When the holy land was taken

We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens

Was it the riches, of the land,
Powers of bright darkness,
That lead the noble, to the East,
To fight the heathens

We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens

We must call upon our bright darkness,
Beliefs, they're the bullets of the wicked,
One was written on the sword,
For you must enter a room to destroy it,
International security,
Call of the righteous man,
Needs a reason to kill man,
History teaches us so,
The reason he must attain,
Must be approved by his God, 
His child, partisan brother of war,

Of war, we don't speak anymore,
Of war, we don't speak anymore,
Of war, we don't speak anymore,
Of war, we don't speak anymore,

We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, We will fight the heathens

Look at each other, Look at each other,
Look at each other, Look at each other.

Go away, Go away, Go away, Go away.......

Mutually, mentally molested children of a Mother,
Mutually, mentally molested children of Sin,

The ever so popular beating that took you under,
The ever so popular beating that broke your skin.

Free thinkers are dangerous,

Blame, Hate, For Fate's Seed.

Go away, Go away, Go away, Go away..

Need the one you love and love the ones you need,
Need the one you love and love the ones you bleed,

Lives rearranged and lives in my range can you breath
Lives rearranged and lives in my range can you see.

Free thinkers are dangerous,

Blame, Hate, For Fate's, Seed.

Why, Why, Why, Why,

Gonna let you mother fuckers die, 
Gonna let you mother fuckers die, 
Gonna let you mother fuckers die, Why........

Look at each other, Look at each other..

. . .



When your stars are baked,
And your rivers fly,
Do you ever believe you were stuck in the, Sky,

When your castle breaks, 
And your feet are dry,
Do you ever believe you were stuck in the, Sky,

Do you believe, when you're high,
That your life is tried,

Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't ever get stuck in the sky, when you're high,

When your moon is fake,
And your mermaids cry,
Do you ever believe you were stuck in the, Sky,

When your tunnel fades,
And your guide is shy,
Do you ever believe you were stuck in the, Sky,

Do you believe, when you're high,
That your life is tried,

Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't ever get stuck in the sky, when you're high,

Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't ever get stuck in the sky, when you're high~

Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't you ever get stuck in the sky,
Don't ever get stuck in the sky, when you're high.

Preflight delight,
Defaced street lights,
A pyramid mind fuck,
Don't leave your seats now,

Popcorn everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people organs rare,
Corn everywhere canned,
ClichЁ¦ people cannot dare,

Dare (repeat)

I want to be,
A fallen ruby,
Guest vibrations,
Don't leave your seats now,

Humans everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people organs rare,
Humans everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people cannot dare,

Dare (repeat)

Humans everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people organs rare,
Humans everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people cannot dare,
Humans everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people organs rare,
Humans everywhere, canned,
ClichЁ¦ people cannot dare, dare, dare, dare.

May I please remain in this space
For darts screach by my desires,
May I please remain in this space
For darts screach by my desires,

Art thou not human man art thou(X 8)
Not human man art thou

Life threatening lifestyles,
A hitman, a nun, lovers.
Life threatening lifestyles,
A hitman, a nun, lovers.

Art thou not human man (X 8)
Not human man art thou

Clock men for they will fail,
Fear not the gods that come from the sky,
Long not for the one who've lost their way,

Arise as did the gods Ninti,
Arise as did the gods Ninti,
Arise as did the gods Ninti,
and Ishkur, and Ishkur.

(Politically lying, Unholy, Cowardly, Killers)

Elimination

Why, Die Walk Down

A whole race Genocide,
Taken away all of our pride, 
A whole race Genocide,
Taken away, Watch Them all fall down.

Revolution, the only solution,
The armed response of an entire nation,
Revolution, the only solution,
We've taken all your shit, now it's time for restitution.

Recognition, Restoration, Reparation,
Recognition, Restoration, Reparation,
Watch them all fall down.

Revolution, the only solution,
The armed response of an entire nation,
Revolution, the only solution,
We've taken all your shit, now it's time for restitution.

The plan was mastered and called Genocide (Never want to see you around)
Took all the children and then we died, (Never want to see you around)
The few that remained were never found, (Never want to see you around)
All in a system of Down......Down.....Down.......Down........Walk Down...........

Watch them all fall down,
Revolution, the only solution,
The armed response of an entire nation,
Revolution, the only solution,
We've taken all your shit, now it's time for restitution.

The plan was mastered and called Genocide (Never want to see you around)
Took all the children and then we died, (Never want to see you around)
The few that remained were never found, (Never want to see you around)
All in a system , Down~

Stretching, filing
Against her skin
Blessed are those
Who are not kin
In sin we breathe
In sex we tie
Duct tape her legs
To the red sky
Foolsome flesh allowances
The pansies raided the pantry of
Gabardine dreams, promiscuous
Delight, deny not the flavor
Custard dreams
Abusing, musing
Marmalade flesh
Naked spread am I

Actors of the tragic fanthom
Extend your legs for great saturn
Brown tale tops scream for cover
At the sight of your new lover
If today I die
And can't deny
The poison chosen
For tonight
Borrowed dreams
Hollowed reveries
Metal pillows
Pewter yellows
Furry roadkill
House on the hill
Pouring gravy
On her thighs still
If today I die
And can't deny
The poison chosen
For tonight

. . .



The spine
A line
The fetus is mine

Don't forget me
Don't forget me
Don't forget me
Don't forget revolt
Revolt
Revolution, counter revolution
Counter counter revolution
The mind
Mind the mind that feeds the blind
And helps you find
And makes you blind
The game
Is on
The Game is on
The Game is on
The Game is on
The Game is on

The spine
A line the fetus is mine
A line the fetus is mine
A line the fetus is mine
A line the fetus is mine

A life
Denied
Comatosis, Comatosis, Comatosis
Comment on my word
Define
My words define
My words define
My words define
My words define
The line
The line
Revolution
Counter revolution
Counter Counter revolution
Solution
Disillusioned by pollution
Resolution starting with the

Spine
A line the fetus is mine
The spine, a line the fetus is mine
The spine, a line the fetus is mine
The spine, a line the fetus is mine
The spine, a line the fetus is mine
The spine, a line the fetus is mine
The spine, a line the fetus is mine
