THE THIRST Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums, Exeris - syn/drums, MindCage - gtr, Paul Green - lyrics She’s lashed to the mast And me to the helm I’m screaming prayers and curses She looks underwhelmed Her mouth is dry with thirst She’ll drink until she bursts… with heroin We used to build castles Into the sky Towers of beauty With basements to hide But now when I look into her face I see that great city laid to waste… by heroin I cannot quench her thrist Tomorrow will just be worse She whispers regrets For all my decisions Wild things turned to house pets Of empty religion She was swimming when we met Now we’re dying in the net… of heroin I used to be so Impressed with her lies Inner demons’ manifestos Calling others to rise But now when I look into her eyes All I see is her disguise… for heroin I cannot quench her thrist Tomorrow will just be worse When I look into her face When I look into her eyes When I look into her face All I see is her disguise LOVE IS A DIRTY WORD Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums, Exeris - syn/drums, Paul - lyrics/violin Not shit, not fuck Not cock, or suck Love is a dirty word Not hot, but cold Not bought, but sold Love is a dirty word Not damn, not slut Not prick, or cunt Love is a dirty word Not learned, but taught Not found, but caught Love is a dirty word It will burn your heart And piss on the ashes The deadliest drug of the masses Not fag, not whore Not raw, but sore Love is a dirty word Not gold, but rust Not young, but dust Love is a dirty word NEXT TO LAST Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn, Monica Durant - vox The next fad will be as lame as the last The next big name will be more of the same The next tech craze blown out of proportion The next time around, but without the shame The next good idea will be snuffed out Or co-opted and then metastasize The next best thing will be unsatisfying The next generation will be victimized The last will be the first The first will be last (or) The last will be left behind The first will just laugh The last dance will be probably slow and awkward The last dollar will have little worth The last laugh will probably sound like a cyclone The last resort for a stoic earth The last chance will feel for real like a bother The last hurrah, an arrhythmic pace The last page won't have words, just scribbles The last telecast will just be a waste The hype is all you need to buy Whatever's next, Whatever's left, Whatever's last, Each time will pass OVER THE FENCE Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn/lyrics, MindCage - gtr, Paul - lyrics, Monica - vox Say what you want about the government It’s all the same to me My two cents are spent And I know where they went Down the toilet and over the fence Say what you want about the politics It’s all the same to me My views all resent How my taxes get spent On your wars off over the fence If I said "Rise!" We would fall If I said "Run!" We'd hit the wall Say what you want about the enemy It’s all the same to me Some day we’ll repent For the things that got bent And left burning over the fence Say what you want about the economy It's all the same to me Can't make the rent GDP won't relent, Another fistfuck without our consent If I said "Fight!" We'd get caught If I said "Live!" You'd say "For what?" When the lies are convenient They are sold as truth Thieves keep winning, so what's the use Exploit the masses, steal for themselves Destroying everyone that needs the help A losing battle, and I'm losing hope We give them money, they just give us rope The time has come, occupy and win No more blood for oil, no more giving in My two cents are spent Over the fence CORPORATI$M Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn/lyrics, Paul - lyrics I'm a wall street criminal I got gold man sacks Just a thief Robbin' u to the max I'm government sanctioned And government backed The dice are loaded The deck is stacked Misery is money And business is booming Lottery for losers The axes are looming Depression is dollars And pity is pennies A market for suckers The bookies are winning Still selling free trade As the path to salvation A shellgame enshrined Through corrupt legislation Our long term loss For their short term gain You can have hope But don't expect a change We lost it all But who gives a shit Stupid Americans Still give us a gift Don't pay no tax On my free trillion fifty My friends at the SEC Yeah, they got me Still haven't caught on To what this is We loan it back Now we're back in biz Scam you once Maybe bad luck But every decade You're stupid fucks Somewhere out there Malthus is smiling As we lay waste to resources through all our coniving Over-indulge in consumer yearnings Life is more than quarterly earnings A ponzi scheme Casualties of commerce Another bubble is growing Every breath makes it worse Capitols are corrupt And the brokers are breaking Equity is envy You give what they're taking Too big to fail? Too corrupt to care End corporate welfare NO SAINTS ALLOWED Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn, Paul - lyrics/violin No saints allowed in the peep show No saints allowed in the neon glow No saint but me Her halo appears when the light shines through When you look into the peep show It looks into you But not me All the things I would do for her On her... to her stuff All the things she'd cry out to me On me... about her stuff This place is depressing Last New Years the poor girl just cried all night long Life's hard all round I’m guessing Whether buried alive or pulling cash from a thong Nadine gives a wink Ginding up and down on a poll My heart starts to sink I spent my last dollar an hour ago No saints allowed to burn a bridge like me No saints allowed to breathe in her heat No saints but me You call it "a stain" I call it "another satisfied customer" MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION Jason - vox/syn/bass gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn, MindCage - gtr I'm totally wrecked and it's starting to show But I still have more life than most people I know Let's skip the charades, you know I'm just a waste Like you're the Queen of England It's your turn to wallow and burn It's your turn to apologize It's your turn... filthy like me It's your turn to be vilified I'm a total fat fuck twat and everyone knows I'm counting the days, but I have nowhere to go You may have reigned, now you're circling the drain Put on our happy faces in vain It's your turn to wallow and burn It's your turn to apologize It's your turn... filthy, like me It's your turn to be vilified I've done the math and I know there's no hope So maybe it's the blows to the head or the dope Cause like an infection that's decided to stay Your pills and your prayers will not take me away Explicit enemies become Implicit allies, you're mine Zero sum, mutually assured Destruction, and no one wins INDISCRIMINATE FORCE Jason - gtr/drums, Exeris - syn YOU DON'T KNOW... Jason - vox/syn/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn, MindCage - gtr I ain't your bitch, so do me a favor Keep your mouth shut, you don't know shit Always dance on the edge of a razor This time you've gone too far You know we see right through your lies But you forget You don't know shit You want to have me on a string Like your plaything You don't know shit Acting like wolves, but you are sheep Your friends are thieves You don't know shit You're searching for love in reverse But it won't work You don't know... I'm not your piss-boy, so shake it off later Tape your mouth shut, it seeps out shit Indulge your sins and pimp out your saviour This time you've gone too far Everybody knows that you lied They know what you've done UNDONE Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn, Paul - lyrics, Monica - vox Place by place I'm leaving Not looking back Nothing to see Nowhere I've been Taste by taste I'm chewing An empty mouth A useless hole Where a voice used to be Hate by hate, confusing All I am With what I’m not with what I am Face by face I’m losing everyone A useless heart Where love used to be I might be forgiven I might be forgotten For what I've done And left undone And left undone... VULTURES (LET US PREY MIX) Jason - vox/syn/gtr/drums/lyrics, Exeris - syn, MindCage - gtr There's no right There is no wrong Just different way to come undone Along the way to deviation Anticipating oblivion Hold me back Just let me go You know I can't take much more All this time spent grinding teeth and All this time spent keeping score Vultures are out tonight They've got their hidden agendas But we can't relax No we can't surrender Rememeber when we jumped off a bridge You learned to fly I slept with the fish Now your head is in the clouds Out of touch just like you wished Entrenched in commerce And Holywood flare Brought down by vultures 'Cause no one cares *Original version of Vultures appears on the album Manifest Destiny.
