I wade through Waves of static I fumble through The bones in the attic Misery inside their heads Emptiness and broken lead Land of the living Of the living Land of the living Of the living The streets rumble underneath Mazel tov to your Molotov dreams Waiting in the land of dissatisfaction The world is left for those who take action Land of the living Of the living Land of the living Of the living

A firestorm of energy Has brought its wrath upon me Sensations driving me wild My head is spinnin, oh my child The time, yes, the time has ended And you have suspended Your ecstasy. But now it's harmony The dam has broken, the sirens yell You toss me 'round with your voodoo spells Don't be shackled anymore. You've heard that cosmic beat before They whispered secrets, secrets before Now they're hidden in a secret cove The ancients never took too much But they never felt your feral touch A firestorm of energy Has brought its wrath upon me Sensations driving me wild My head is spinnin, oh my child

Don't you know Don't you know Don't you know I can't do anything on my own Don't you know Don't you know Don't you know I can't do anything on my own I'm a monster I'm a monster I'm a monster In your eyes I'm a monster I'm a monster I'm a monster In disguise Don't you know Don't you know Don't you know I can't do anything on my own Don't you know Don't you know Don't you know I can't do anything on my own It's so so It's so so It's so so It's so debilitating It's so so It's so so It's so so It's so frustrating

The nuclear self, Lying in the grass, Deranged From the womb. The primal scream motivates: affiliation, ambition, power now. And so the story goes And so the story goes You pick pick pick pick pick it up and try again Self-fulfilling prophesy Manifests in a toaster oven now Cover my two-faced Polyhedron schemata And so the story goes And so the story goes You pick pick pick pick pick it up and try again

Took my baby on a 1 a.m. flight Things so much better after midnight Took my baby to the Wichita Bay That's where we found our way My baby went down to Pittsburgh She drank the tough town beer And yeah I really miss her Just want to hold her near

Night Train 02:49
The Atlantic beckons forth No hope for the night train She's riding into the sun She said she's number 31 The search went for the missing man All choked up and hostile again Fearful eyes in every direction Blood drenched hands and scar-torn factions No hope for the night train No hope, No hope Riding into the sun No hope for number 31

She wakes up in the morning Something something is not right She wakes up in the evening She says "Please just hold me tight!" And the Space Race is so contagious So contagious So contagious And the Space Race is so contagious So contagious So contagious It's so contagious: The Space Race It's so contagious Contagious Contagious She wakes up in the evening Evening, evening is so right She goes out with the season She said "Please just hold me tight!" And the Space Race is so contagious So contagious So contagious And the Space Race is so contagious So contagious So contagious It's so contagious: The Space Race It's so contagious Contagious Contagious

I ignite with the full moon, honey I divide by zero, money I got gold and pager, somethin Somethin, honey I'm fuckin movin movin with the moon and moon and moon and I'm fuckin movin movin I got fractals on fractals spinnin. I got inner ear pinnings. Hypoglycemic, awkward Texans, Full moon orchestral sections I'm fuckin movin movin with the moon and moon and moon and I'm fuckin movin movin

Popular sovereignty Democratic legitimacy War machine foreign policy Don't mean anything to me Post-modern dialectic Waiting around to get infected So I eat all your confections And I give you my affections You're the one that I believe in I'm the one that I believe in We're the ones that we believe in Everything else don't mean anything to me They were searching for the city of God But they didn't get very far Cut me open and I bleed Cause everything else don't mean anything to me

Call me Lucifer outside the city limits You was dressed in fur and other shitty gimmicks Call me Lucifer outside the city limits You was dressed in fur and other shitty gimmicks But oh, it's a long way home. Oh, it's a long way home. The sound I wanna hear ain't sound waves or cassettes. The sound I wanna hear is beating inside your chest. The sound I wanna hear ain't sound waves or cassettes. The sound I wanna hear is beating inside your chest. But oh, it's a long way home. Oh, it's a long way home.
