Track Name: Moonwatcher
I'm a chemical machine with
thoughts to think and rocks for teeth
do my proteins dream or cheat
lie or steal or kill to eat

Yes I'm sure they must compete
So do we, but a human can think
thought and reasoning are similar
theyre not the same thing

I'm just a monkey, thoughtless chimpanzee
let's not overcomplicate things
muse of a creature arose from the spring
taught me to slither my tongue in deceit
name all the things that are thought or perceived
meanings are victim to mystery's sting
I will not stop!
The jungle is mine!
Fashion an axe
Build her a shrine

I was young, the old ones cried
genitals were made to hide
origin is kept a myth
in fact it's cloaked in shame
pornographic ecstasy was overplayed
but you believed it!
Bodies built for sex and fashion
lack luster lacking passion
Track Name: Children of Atom
North Wind is howling down the fault line
swear the oath and we'll resurrect the old lies
stone walls streaked with rain-swept bands
ruins cleaved by ancient hands

we will start the world anew
we must be relentless
all the noise you hear is true
eyes and ears attentive

Pay for pleasure, someone's gotta pay
debt collecting vultures sifting our remains
idolize the logo, loco like a chemslave
with my old souls starving while we sang
Track Name: Terrible Stories
the police came
took my brother away
i say he was framed
by a man with a tattooed face
should i meet this man in the morning
by noon i'll be digging a shallow grave

You're gonna die.

My mother's in pain and she weeps while she prays
envisions her babe in a cradle of bars and chains
They beat him in the courtyard with their sins
they'll repent with broken bones

You'd better repent.


It's been ten long years
since that coward whipped me in the mud
His eyes were afire, ancient desire for blood
well now, your child is grown
I'll oblige you with blood of your own

This sickening man
married my mother
in due time
he purchased a rifle,
a backhoe
and bags of lime

well daddy's gonna bury us in the backyard, love

we're gonna die.
Track Name: Mescaline
Midnight showed up for a minute
city bought the dream
glass collected in the gutter
dancing in the streets

out from the entanglement
a woman with a mind
gaia in her dancing
there were novas in her eyes

take what you want from me
i wont resist
drunk and im listless
young and im pissed

i'll lose my cool and
start talking shit
i'll regret every word of it

blur my vision till the world's erased
in the morning i'll return from space
sent me spiraling with one simple phrase

let's get high

She put me in a frenzy with a new step
i gotta bad rep
but she don't know me
drop a dose and the city is kinetic
a new aesthetic
a schism in the dream
where the treeline meets psychosis
drown to sleep in pools of genes
dreaming of a universe
i was her
she was me


take what you want from me
i wont resist
drunk and im listless
young and im pissed

i'll lose my cool and
start talking shit
i'll regret every word of it

blur my vision till the world's erased
in the morning i'll return from space
sent me spiraling with one simple phrase

let's get high

If you feel a little strung out
a little down on your luck
know, I am down on mine too
it's okay to feel imperfect
the world is too

I punched myself in the head
she said "do not beat yourself up
you've got the world to do that for you."
She said she was feeling worthless
i said "the world is too."

so let's get high.
Track Name: Highway Celestial
Heaven is a hot scene
all the drinks are cheap
ladies get in free
we all love one another

i think i should warn
the dress code is enforced
they sent me on my way
cus i couldnt pay the cover

shed my vessel
leave this rock behind
highway celestial
winding out of sight

I know there's an afterlife
cus i saw it advertised
i know there's an afterlife
cus i saw it advertised

If the soul is real
then i hope it's not eternal
i could not afford
to do this once a week

if i'm reincarnate
hope that i am brainless
hopelessly intoxicated
ignorant or vagrant

shed my vessel
leave this rock behind
highway celestial
winding out of sight

i know theres and afterlife
cus i saw it advertised
