Track Name: Sexy Zombie Virus
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
Track Name: Feral Touch / T-Rex
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
Track Name: Inverted Narcissism (Song 1)
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
Track Name: Primal Scream
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
Track Name: Blues Jam
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
Track Name: Night Train
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
Track Name: Space Race / Tom Sawyer
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
Track Name: James Brown
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
Track Name: Warsawng
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
Track Name: Untitled
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.
