Track Name: The Dawn of the World
On Sunday, the King and Queen of Avalon
Sitting atop their lumbering elephants
At the dawn, ride toward the newborn sunrise
Stained pink and red by the holiest light.

Peasants and prostitutes dancing at their heels
Shaking brass ringlets that sing like silver bells
Tapping the beat with their feet between the stomp
Writhing and dancing as their entourage.

I am couched in my cockpit
Searching for the mystery.
My instrument panel glows coldly
Staining my face blue and green.

I am flying through darkness.
Planets pass by my window.
I see what’s never been seen
As I move through what is unknown.

One hundred horns blaring from the horizon.
Over their heads glows a shining white nimbus.
Minds burning with the one, eternal question.
Marching with entourage to the Gates of Heaven.

The stars twinkle distantly at me.
Perhaps someday I’ll reach them.
I never know where I’ll be tomorrow
Or who or what I’ll be by then.

I don’t know where I am going.
As I search for some unknown place.
I point my starship straight into
The cold black heart of space.

Kings, Queens, and peasants
With the eternal question
Marching in entourage
To the Gates of Heaven.

I don’t know where I’m going to
As I search for mystery.
I point my starship straight into
The cold black heart of space.
Track Name: The Golden Age
When love is born
It flies across the glistening, twilight sea,
And sings it’s little lie into
Some fool’s ear as he sleeps.

That is how you came to me.
It seemed as if you were from
My dreams....

Now you’ve gone and slipped away
Just at the break of day.
I smell your scent, I feel your touch,
That fade as I awake.

That is how you came to me.
It seemed as if you were from
My dreams....
Track Name: The Silver Age
Everybody knows it that you got it
Everybody knows it that I want it
Everybody’s hooked on it
Everybody wants a hit
We’ve got the itch
Everybody wants to take
Someone home for the night.

I'm never one to play it twice
If i did not like it the first time.
I can’t promise you my love
But my instincts give you a *5*.
I just wanna try you on for the night.

A kiss is just a kiss from any other
But girl you're dynamite.
You're the kinda girl with a cannonball helmet
You're the kinda girl that'll get me high.

Everybody knows that drugs don't solve it.
Everybody knows that religion's hard.
What I got you want.
You gotta have it.
You know I’m the only one who’ll make it right.
Let me be the one who takes you home for the night.

A kiss is just a kiss from any other
But girl you're dynamite.
You're the kinda girl with a cannonball helmet
You're the kinda girl that'll get me high.

Buh buh buh buh duh buh buh
I've got you by the heart strings.
Come put your helmet on now
Let me show you what it’s all about.

A kiss is just a kiss from any other
But girl you're dynamite.
You're the kinda girl with a cannonball helmet
You're the kinda girl that'll get me high.
Track Name: The Bronze Age
This world is falling apart.
This place is breaking down.
I was belching fire
So I figured I gotta get outta this town.

I was a young man,
I pushed a little harder.
You’re content with your traditions
But I wanna take things a little farther.

You took your hammer
Turned my skull to stone.
We disappear in time
Like words on telephone poles.

Where is my future?
Leading up to a time
Where nothing is real
Nothing hurts
And I am the devil's child.

You gotta breathe breathe breathe
Through the smoking gun.
You gotta fight fight fight
Until the bodies can be counted.
Track Name: Unreal City
I swim through the city at night
With a sailor’s dead blue eyes.
Sleepwalking cats stare at me
Wearing business suits in the subway.

They know. Dog doesn't know
What’s going on. Wolf is gone.
This year, machine is a woman.
She’s made of silicon and carbon.

I’m 23. My 13th month.
Derelict voice of geese on the windfall.
I’m 84. And I listen
To the dogs braying outside the city walls.

Everything that will soon happen
Is already happening.
I don't know if it’s you or its me
Or it's them who is speaking.

A dream of insects collected over time.
A fetal head pressing at the base of my spine.
Wolves play guitar on the TV.
Gog and Magog watching breathe easy.

Everything that will soon happen
Is already happening.
I don't know if it’s you or its me
Or it's them who is speaking.
Track Name: The Beggar's Rant
They shapeshift into bankers and politicians.
High level officials are working with them.
The 12 sons of the light dimension.
Interspatial, alien, traveling men.
The beast will rise to claim the godhead.
Undersea, black, tentacle spacers.

You can identify them by their cat eyes.
It doesn’t make any sense with yer rational mind.
They wanna put chips in our brains and hands.
You have to tear it apart to understand.
They are aliens from the 5th dimension.
Casanova would try but he’s a haversham man.

There's a serpent underground.
He’s gonna rise up and destroy this town.
He’ll wrap this city in eternal flames.
He’s gonna make all the sinners pay.
Gimme a minute chance, momma.
I’m gonna fight for your right tonight.

I can’t stop these birthing pains.
The beast will rise when she wants to again.
The great bitch heathen will sit on moon calves
Upon a throne of buildings and feed on man.
We’re going into the 5th incarnation.
Take my hand you spam can.

There's a serpent underground.
He’s gonna rise up and destroy this town.
He’ll wrap this city in eternal flames.
He’s gonna make all the sinners pay.
He’s gonna rise up and pop the crown.
All these towers gonna tumble down.

I’m in conversation with the poison.
They have controlled the world since time began.
There’s an angel waiting out in the system.
Like a nebula, it’s gonna come and save us.
You need to give birth to be a man.
They make diseases to trim the population.

There’s a serpent underground.
He’s waiting patiently to take this town.
He’ll wrap this city in eternal flames.
This city will be microwaved.
Gog and Magog are watching, too.
He’s gonna come with the blood red moon.

There’s a serpent underground.
He’s gonna rise up and destroy this town.
He’ll wrap this city in eternal flames.
This city will be microwaved.
Gog and Magog are watching, too.
You’re gonna pay for the sins you woo.
Track Name: The Rever3nd B. M**R F**R Jones (feat. Boogiewhip)
Who are you in that light?
I gotta know you by tonight.
The way you're moving on the floor
It makes me feel like an animal.

I'll make you move like I know that you wanna do.
I’ll make you feel like I know that you wanna do.
The way you get inside my head
It makes me feel like I wanna be bad.

I wanna sing hallelujah.
I wanna get down and give it to ya.
I wanna get ya down on your knees.
Say a prayer for me.

You turn my engine on.
(He does the 2 and the 4)
That’s a plagiarism if I ever heard one.
(He likes to swing around)
If I got my head checked out
(He don't know what he's been told)
They'd find you in there messing about.
(Everybody's gonna grow old)

I got a taste of your little equivocator.
I liked it so much I applied my oscillator.
Legs to the sun like an electric modulator.
Givin' out frequencies of fuck and I'm an amplifier.

I wanna sing hallelujah.
I wanna get down and give it to ya.
I wanna get ya down on your knees.
Say a prayer for me.

I'm the VIP of the rubber room
And I’m crazy about two things: you and you.
I'm in a pussy riot 9 to 5.
Everybody on the floor and make your momma cry.

You make me fantasize
Of your sweet enterprise.
Your ass is as vast as a spacecraft
Comfortably seating a crew of 3.

Ecstasy, jasmine tea, college degrees,
Raspberries, and vitamin C
Are good for you, but so is doob.
We’ll go to hell for what I wanna do.

You are stacked and that is a fact.
Frank Lloyd Wright would appreciate that.
I am pious, I am zealous.
I'm religious about your ass.

I got the fliest moves on the floor.
All the guys are jealous all the girls want more.
Who needs your momma’s house
When I got the club?

I wanna sing hallelujah.
I wanna get down and give it to ya.
I wanna get ya down on your knees.
Say a prayer for me.
Track Name: The Hanged Man
I walk by the code of the gun, I walk alone.
I don’t care which road is the right road.
I've met wine and women of different taste.
Each pulls me down into dark fantasy.

I walk down side roads set by the devil.
I waste my time on women who’s passions are for sale.
I was tricked by the devil to eat.
I wish some lover would pull me out of this dark place.

I'm a man with no home trailed by his shadow.
I roam from woman to woman looking for evil.
By man comes woman, woman pain.
All living things reside in death’s domain.

You saw the earth
What was at stake
You took your step
Away from me
You say that you don’t believe in
You say that you don’t believe in
You say that you don’t believe in love.
Track Name: Lobo
I like the smell of smoke
I like the sound of gunfire
i am the man in black
Waiting just around the corner

Stuff all your pockets
With all you guns n knives
Take a walk down the road
Just to see what it feels like

I killed my father
When i was 5 years old
Take a look in my backyard
There you’ll find his bones

Woman, I’ll take you by the flesh
And pull you into heaven
Man, I’ll take you by the flesh
And shoot you down to hell

From miles away I hear your car crashing
Sometimes a bad thing can be a really good thing

I am the gypsy death
I am the black hex
I am the thief in the night
The one you least expect

Your savior is a momma’s boy
Your morals are superstitions
I got one bullet in my gun
And one in your gut

From miles away I hear your car crashing
Sometimes a bad thing can be a really good thing
Track Name: Thee Weyrd Sisters
Poetry is prophecy
And prophecy is poetry
And for both
Death is key.
The language of serpents and birds,
The alphabet is spelled out
In womb water and haunted houses.

Here is the hanged man
Next to the fool.
Here is the tower
And here the moon blooms.
Here is the holy man
So protect your virtue.
Here is the serpent
Turning inside you.

They found a hanged man this morning.
They pulled his body from the river.
Some poor sap hung him up to dry,
Then tried to hide him in the water.

The need for him is great right now.
You ignore it at your own peril.
There will come a time when the world is in danger.
If you destroy him, you destroy nature.

Wolf spittle, purple cream, frog eyes, and bat legs,
Roach heads, cat whiskers, dog ears, and spider eggs.
Those who cheat death must drink blood.
These bones are for business but flesh is for fun.

They found a hanged man this morning.
They pulled his body from the river.
Some poor sap hung him up to dry,
Then tried to hide him in the water.
Track Name: Space Odyssey
I’m born away to Oz.
I wanna say I know all there is to know.
So give me all your love
Give me all your hate.
I will fly with you to the starry highway.

There is no up or down or sideways.
I’m spinning round and round
And I couldn’t care less anyways.
Hyperion settlers surf the flares with me
While mutemath music spins the spheres.

Jupiter is big and round.
Hanging in a net of diamonds.
Bouncing round the stars
Playing bumper cars.
I don’t wanna be where there is ground.

There is no up or down or sideways.
I’m spinning round and round
And I couldn’t care less anyways.
Hyperion settlers surf the flares with me
While mutemath music spins the spheres.
Track Name: The 7th Bardo
Masks on in daylight
Cooing like lost whales
Sleep is a great, wide space

Under electric light
Of dark, vegetable life
Bark ass thick as fever dreams

The tower, the wheel, the cross
The fool and his little dog
You’re as banana as an old person

April 1st
The quiet earth
Darkness is a dimension
Track Name: The Serpent
This has been spoken centuries ago
The End Time’s coming
and you brought it on yourself.
Now I have risen to take my place
At the Throne of Beasts
and you can’t escape.

You can’t escape me
You can’t avoid
I have risen and you are inside
Can you handle your little prize?
All the power that’s beginning to rise?

The Madness of Insanity is far preferable
To the Madness of Normalcy.
The moon has turned to blood.
The pain in my belly
Rising up now to speak
Demanding
Make me
Save me
Speak and be saved
Make me
Save me
Speak and be saved.
Track Name: Tomorrow
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.

When you’ve lost a friend
Time is at it’s end
You don’t have anything left
There are people who
Want to help you
Give you everything they have.

Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.

When you’re all alone
Left without a home
There is danger all around you.
Do not be upset
The fear is in your head
Do what you have come to do.

Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
Everything’s gonna be alright.
