01 VICARIOUS

(7:08)

Eyes on the TV
Cause tragedy thrills me
Whatever flavor it happens to be like
Killed by the husband
Drowned by the ocean
Shot by his own son
She used a poison in his tea
To kiss him goodbye
That's my kind of story
It's no fun till someone dies

Don't look me at like
I am a monster
Frown out your one face
But with the other
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie
While the mother holds her child
Watches him die
Hands to the sky crying
Why, oh why

Cause I need to watch things die
From a distance
Vicariously I live
While the whole world dies
You all need it too, don't lie

Why can't we just admit it
Why can't we just admit it
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing
Neither the brave nor bold
Will write us the stories so
We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

And I need to watch things die
From a good safe distance
Vicariously I live
While the whole world dies
You all feel the same, so

Why can't we just admit it

Blood like rain come down
Drawn by grave and ground

Part vampire, part warrior
Carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmitter
Sing to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie
La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie
La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie
La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men
Pull your head on out your hippy haze
And give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile, so impersonal
Devour to survive so it is, so it's always been

We all feed on tragedy
It's like blood to a vampire

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I

02 JAMBI

(7:30)

If in the king's mountain view
Here from the while dream come true
Feast like a sultan, I do
On treasures and flesh never few

But I, I would wish it all away
If I thought I'd lose you just one day

The devil and his has me down
In love with the dark side I've found
Dabblin all the way down
Up to my neck soon to drown
But you changed that all for me
Lifted me up, turned me around

So I, I, I, I
I would, I would, I would
Wish this all away

Pray like a martyr dusk to dawn
Beg like a hooker all night long
Tempted the devil with my song
And got what I wanted all along

But I
And I would
If I could
And I would
Wish it away, wish it away
Wish it all away
Wanna wish it all away
No prize you could hold sway
On justify my giving away my center

So if I could I'd wish it all away
If I thought tomorrow, they'd take you away

You're my piece of mind
My all, my center
I'm just trying to hold on
One more day

Damn my eyes
Damn my eyes

Damn my eyes
If they should compromise our fulcrum
Want and need divide me
Then I might as well be gone

Shine on forever
Shine on benevolent sun
Shine down upon the broken
Shine until the two become one

Shine on forever
Shine on benevolent sun
Shine down upon the sinners
Shine until the two become one

Divide and wither it away
Divide and wither it away
Shine down upon the many
Light our way, benevolent sun

Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union

So, as one, survive another day in season
Silence leech and save your poison
Silently just stay out of my way

03 WINGS FOR MARIE (PT. 1)

(6:13)

You
You believed
You believed in moments God conceived
You believed in me

A passionate spirit
Uncompromised
Boundless and open
A light in your eyes that
Could end all lies

Vacan't, broken
Fell at the hands of this moment
So that I wouldn't see
It was you who prayed for me so
What have I done
To be a son to an angel
What have I done
To be worthy

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescence
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this selfish question, but
What am I to say to all these ghouls tonight
She never told a lie, well might have told a lie
But never lived one

Didn't have a life
Didn't have a life
But surely saved one
So I'm alright
Now it's time for us to let you go

04 10,000 DAYS (WINGS PT. 2)

(11:15)

Listen to the tales and romanticize
How we follow the path of the hero
We boast about the day when the rivers overrun
How we rise to the height of our halo

Listen to the tales as we all rationalize
Our way into the arms of the savior
Fading all the trials and the tribulations
None of us have actually been there
Not like you

Ignorant fibbers in the congregation
Gather around spewing sympathy
Spare me
None of them can even hold a candle up to you
Blinded by choices, hypocrites won't see

But, enough about the collective Judas
Who could deny you were the one who illuminated
You'll have a piece of the divine

This little light of mine, the gift you passed on to me
I'll let it shine, to guide you safely on your way
Your way home

Oh, what are they going to do when the lights go down
Without you to guide them all to Zion
What are they going to do when the rivers overrun
Other than tremble incessantly

High as a wave, but I'll rise on up off the ground
You are were the light and the way that they'll only read about
I only pray, Heaven knows when to lift you out
Ten thousand days in the fire is long enough, you're going home

You're the only one who can hold your head up high
Shake your fists at the gates saying
"I have come home now"
Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father
Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended
It's time now, my time now
Give me my, give me my wings

Give me my, give me my
Give me my, give me my
Give me my, give me my wings

You are the light and way, that they will only read about

Set as I am in my ways and my arrogance
Burden of proof tossed upon the believers

You were my witness, my eyes, my evidence
Judith Marie, unconditional one

Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescence
Difficult to see you in this light
Please forgive this bold suggestion
Should you see your maker's face tonight
Look him in the eye, look him in the eye, and tell him
I never lived a lie, never took a life, but surely saved one
Hallelujah, it's time for you to bring me home

05 THE POT

(6:23)

Who are you to wave your finger
You must have been out your head
Eye hole deep in muddy waters
You practically raised the dead

Rob the grave to snow the cradle
Then burn the evidence down
Soapbox house of cards and glass so
Don't go tossin your stones around

You must have been high
You must have been high
You must have been high

Foot in mouth and head up ass
So what ya talkin bout
Difficult to dance round this one
Till you pull it out, boy

You must have been so high
You must have been so high

Steal, borrow
Reap or save your shady inference
Kangaroo done hung the juror with the innocent

Now your witnesses are chosen
And your golden images set and you're high
When you pissed all over my black kettle
You must have been high, high
You must have been high, high

Who are you to wave your finger
So full of it
Eyeballs deep in muddy waters
Fuckin hypocrite

Liar, lawyer, mirror show me what's the difference
Kangaroo done hung the guilty with the innocent

Now you weep in chosen shades of chosen indigo
Got lemon juice up in your high eye
When you pissed all over my black kettle
You must've been

So who are you to wave your finger
Who are you to wave your mighty fingers at me
You must have been out your mind

Weep in shades of indigo
Shed without a reason
Weep in shades of indigo

Liar, lawyer, mirror, for you what's the difference
Kangaroo be stoned, he's guilty as the government

Now you weep in chosen shades of chosen indigo
Got lemon juice up in your eye, eye
When you pissed all over my black kettle
You must've been high, high, high, high
Eyeballs deep in bloody waters
Eyeballs deep in muddy waters

Ganja police, you must have been out your mind

07 LOST KEYS (BLAME HOFFMAN)

(3:48)

Excuse me, doctor, do you have a moment
A moment, what's the question
More of a situation, a gentleman in Exam 3
What's the problem
That is the problem, we're not sure
You've got the chart
Right here
Hmm, not much here, is there
No doctor, no obvious physical trauma, vitals are stable
Name
No sir
Did someone drop him off, maybe we can speak to them
Let's get some background on this fellow
No ID, nothing, and he won't speak to anybody
Well, let's say hello

Good morning, I'm Dr. Watson
How are you today? How are you today
Look son, you're in a safe place
We want to help you, in whatever way we can
But you need to talk us, we can't help you otherwise
Now, what's happened, tell me everything

08 ROSETTA STONED

(11:12)

Holy shit

This is 2am, half show media
We had a box of crispy creams and I needed no potion
I was outside Area 51, contemplating the hole
Desert people seemed to me just another flaming
Just then a banana split the sky right open open
Things I never expected to see em in a place like this
Anyway, I thought I was gonna die
When something ran up my Birkinstocks and healed me

Holy fuckin shit
Holy fuckin shit
Holy fuckin shit
Holy fuckin shit
Holy fuckin shit
Holy fuckin shit

Then the X-Files began
There was some kind of blue/green Jackie Chan
With Isabella Rosellini lips and breath that wreaked
And then they went to chop it into form
But then entered the banana vessel and heard about my bug eyes
My gapping jaw, and all the while
And all I can think was
I hope uncle quark here doesn't know I just pissed my fuckin pants

So I lie this way
Like an apparition
Help me cryin out

Fuck me, gotta be
Dead head chemistry
Oh God, it's on top of me
Heart beatin, eatin my fuckin face

And after calming me down with some orange slices
And some beetles pudding
E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose
He said you are the chosen one
The one who will deliver the message
A message of hope for those who choose to hear it
And a warning for those who do not

Me, the chosen one
They chose me
And I didn't even graduate from fuckin high school

You better
You better
You better
You better listen

Then he looked right through me
With some different solid eyes
Don't even know what that means
Please remember to write it down

This is so real
Like a talent it floated away
See my heart is pounding
Cause this shit never happens to me

Can't breathe right now

It was so real
I can look up and wonder when
All sort of terrifying
I don't want to be all alone
When I tell this story
And can anyone tell me why
Or some painted spirits
Will I ever be coming down

This is so real
Finally it's my lucky day
See my heart is racing
Cause this shit never happens to me

Can't breathe right now

You believe me don't you
Please believe what I just said
See them tell each other
And this wasn't all in my head
Till they took the better hand
And invited me right here
When they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin

Strapped down, my bed
Feet cold, eyes red
Oh no, my head
My life, my dick
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Overwhelmed as one would be
Placed in my position
Such a heavy burden now to be the one

Born to bear and read to all, the details never ending
To write it down for all the world to see
But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again, typical

Strapped down, my bed
Feet cold, eyes red
I'm out of my head
My life, am I dead
Sun kissed the Sudafed
Gyroscopes and infared
Won't help the brain dead
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to make me out to be a hero
Tear em out of my head
God help me
Can't remember what they said

Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know

Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know
Don't know, won't know

God damn, shit the bed

Pure as we begin
Pure as we come in
Pure as we begin
Pure by will alone

Pure as we begin
Here we have a stone
Gather, place, eraser
Shelter turned to home

Pure as we begin
Here we have a stone
Throughout stay the stranger
Swore to crush his bones

Move by will alone

Spark becomes a flame
Flame becomes a fire
Light the way or warm this
Hope we occupy

Spark becomes a flame
Flame becomes a fire
Forge a blade to slay the stranger
Take whatever we desire

Move by will alone

Pure as we begin

Pure as we begin
Move by will alone
Leave as we come in
Pure as light, return to one

Move by will alone

10 RIGHT IN TWO

(8:57)

Angels on the sideline
Puzzled and amused
Why did father give these humans free will
Now they're all confused

Don't these talking monkeys know
That Eden has enough to go around
Plenty in this holy garden, silly monkeys
Where there's one you're bound to divide
Right in two

Angels on the sideline
Baffled and confused
Father blessed them all with reason
And this is what they choose

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground
Silly monkeys give them thumbs they forge a blade
And where there's one they're bound to divide it
Right in two
Right in two

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground
Silly monkeys give them thumbs they make a club
And beat their brother down
How they survive so misguided is a mystery
Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
To lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here

Cutting it all right in two
Cutting it all right in two
Cutting it all right in two
Cutting it all right in two

Fight over the clouds, over wind, over sky
Fight over your lie, over blood, over anything
Fight over love, over sun, over nothing
Fight till they die over what
For their lives are ending

Angels on the sideline again
Been so long with patience and reason
Angels on the sideline again
Wondering when this tug of war will end

Cutting it all right in two
Cutting it all right in two
Right in two
Right in two
