Track Name: Devil Be Damned
That devil be damned
with its easy touch.
If that snake don’t eat you,
you’re gonna rust.
That fatal fire burns you
with its lust.
Even mother sun,
well it turns to dust.

You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.

That devil be damned
with its easy touch.
If that snake don’t eat you,
you’re gonna rust.
That fatal fire burns you
with its lust.
Even mother sun,
well it turns to dust.

You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
You’re from a long time ago.
You’ve got a long way to go.
Track Name: Crashed Again
There she floats
like a fly’s torn wing
There she lilts.
She knows everything about aerodynamics.

I go blank
to the sound.
Bashed my head,
washed away, all my thermodynamics.

I crashed again.
I crashed again.

She floats away,
in stasis still.
Relative to nil
she oscillates, like quantum mechanics.

I crashed again.
I’m bleeding out my thermodynamics.
I crashed again.
I broke my head. I’m bleeding out my thermodynamics.
Track Name: Self-Assembling Mechanism
You’re so human and you’re so flawed.
You’re so human and you’re so flawed.
You would love to be closer to god.
You’re a self-assembling mechanism.
You’re just a self-assembling mechanism.

You’re so human and you’re so flawed.
You’re so human and you’re so flawed.
You would like to be filled with love.
You’re a self-assembling mechanism.
You’re just a self-assembling mechanism.

This soft machine I fear the worst.
Look over your shoulder for the gray ghost.
Batteries and broken parts cobbled together from the dust of stars.
Track Name: Merry-Go-Round
Merry-go-round in the heart of your eyes
Merry-go-round in the wind when it pines
Merry-go-round every day of your life
Holding on to something that you’ll never quite get right
Now ride. Ride.
Oh ride. Ride. Oh ride. Ride.

Not feeling the best not sure you feel it anymore
You call the doctor but he always says no
You know the way, but it’s too hard to go
All full of thistles you’re a thimble, don’t you know
Now ride. Ride.
Oh ride. Ride.
Oh ride. Ride.

Merry-go-round in the heart of your eyes
Merry-go-round in the wind when it pines
Merry-go-round every day of your life
Holding on to something that you’ll never quite get right
Now ride. Ride.
Oh ride. Ride. Oh ride. Ride.
Track Name: Luna Beam
Luna Beam, and your motive loco,
I care for you because you’re so careful
Luna, darling, buried in the garden
I got half a mind to beg your pardon.

Without even a whisper I became your prisoner.
Now I shall refrain from your chorus of pain.
You blank the canvas blacker than Lazarus.
You can grant the last wish blister is caress.

Luna Beam, and your motive loco,
your smile is frightening,
but it doesn’t become me.
Luna Sane, santos notable
muertos y listos reciban la comunion.

Without even a whisper I became your prisoner.
Now I shall refrain from your chorus of pain.
You paint the canvas blacker than Lazarus.
You can grant the last wish blister is caress.
Track Name: A Better Light
I see their sullen eyes.
Their hearts push red like mine.
How can you believe we walk in a better light?

Your pretty things
Your screws and your plastic tins
How can you say to me ‘we walk in a better light?’

Your symbols they rise and fall.
Yours are the hands that built these walls.
There ain’t no such thing as a hallowed light.
Track Name: You Don't Belong
Come here, my son.
Your hands, they hold the world.
Druidic eyes, they see right through me.

You don’t believe ‘cause you don’t belong.
You don’t believe ‘cause you don’t belong.

Chemist on the weekend.
Agar blood.
You feel like one in a million.
You’re just another lonely one.

You don’t believe ‘cause you don’t belong.
You don’t believe ‘cause you don’t belong.
Track Name: Lazer Eyes
All this time I thought you were blind to the cities of my mind,
but you looked down and then back up again.
That’s when I knew that you understand

Oh, you got laser eyes.
Oh, you got laser eyes.

So many years I was just a boy waiting for the revolution, but I just got annoyed.
I cried, ‘Oh god where have you gone?’ There was no answer, so I just moved on.

Oh, well I used my eyes.
Oh, I used my eyes.
You got laser eyes.
You got laser eyes.
Track Name: Not A Villain
Lady Wikasa, gentle and noble, in the skeleton of your manor you’ll find the man to be.
You never loved in the flesh so you must while deceased.
You’re not a villain, you’re a tragedy.

Nymphess Calypso detains the hero, on an island of temptation. Why won’t you set him free?
You want an immortal lover, but the gods won’t let you be.
You’re not a friend, you’re not an enemy.

Lovely Delores, pretty little orphan, underneath a stepfather who doesn’t want to care for thee.
It might feel like loving, but nothing comes for free.
You’re not a nymphess, you’re only 17.

Fatale Ms. Spider, playing defenseless, side-by-side with the gumshoe baby, he’ll only sense your body heat.
You’re gonna get what’s coming but it’s not indemnity, you’re not to be trusted, you’re too much like me.

You might think they’re sirens or harpies.
The apple doesn’t fall that far, no it doesn’t fall far from the tree.
It’s not a man she’ll be eating it’s the knowledge that tempted Eve, she’s not a villain she’s a tragedy.
Track Name: Sea-Monsters Attack, But Humanity Prevails
Command your armies to protect their homes.
Attacking octopus invaded the zones.
No room for error with the flying squid.
All our sidewalks covered in ink.

Will we survive the attack from the sea?
Can we survive this attack from the giant fish?

We’re losing numbers, but we’re gaining ground.
Contained the city, but electricity’s out.
Fall back to high point in the city square.
If we can't take them in the open,
then we’ll lead them there.

Will we survive the attack from the sea?
Can we survive this attack from the giant fish?

We downed the octo and the winged shark.
The barracudas in the fountain down in Michigan Park.
Showing signs of leaving, but you just can’t tell.
It could be the beginning of a sea-borne hell.

Will we survive the attack from the sea?
Can we survive this attack from the giant fish?
Track Name: I Just Get Bored
She bore my head with roses.
She made a bed of nails.
She wanted me forever,
so she brought me down to hell.
The demon it was sleeping,
and I broke free from my chains.
I climbed back up to green grass,
but I fell back down again.
But I fell back down again.

Fought with the demon,
and I came away quite bruised.
I tore that harpie’s heart out,
and stomped it ‘neath my shoe.
When the fight was over,
I removed the demon’s skull,
and took it for my trophy,
and drank from it her blood.
I drank from it her blood.

That is why I don’t worry anymore, I just get bored.

He was born a pauper’s son,
but I loved him just the same.
We were married when I was 17,
in the pouring rain.
I caught him in an embrace,
with the air still warm,
so I dashed the lady,
who had just been in his arms.
Who had just been in his arms.

He begged forgiveness,
but no mercy could be found.
I hit him with a poker,
and I tied him down.
I took my hatchet,
and I cut off both his hands.
Now he’ll hold no one again.
He’ll hold no one again.

That is why I don’t worry anymore, I just get bored.
That is why I don’t worry anymore.
Take this pain and hang it above the door.
That is why I don’t worry anymore, I just get bored.
