  1. Modern ManVer letra 1:58


    letra de Modern Man

    I've got nothing to say,
    I've got nothing to do,
    All om my neruons are
    Functioning smoothly
    Yet still I'm a cyborg just like you,
    I am one big myoma that thinks,
    My planet supports only me,
    I've got this one big problem: will I live forever?
    I've got just a short time you see,
    Modern man, evelotionary betrayer,
    Modern man, ecosystem destroyer,
    Modern man, destroy yourself in shame,
    Modern man, pathetic example of earth's organic heritage,
    When I look back and think,
    When I ponder and ask "why?",
    I see my ancestors spend with careless abandon,
    Assuming eternal supply, modern man...,
    Just a sample of carbon-based wastage,
    Just a fucking tragic epic of you and i

  2. Turn On The LightVer letra 1:24


    letra de Turn On The Light

    I had a friend who kept a candle in his pocket,
    He used to touch it when the wind was blowing high,
    I guess it mad him feel like he could
    Buck the system and when it flickered out we laid him down to die,
    Turn on the light, turn on a million blinding brilliant white
    Incendiary lights, a beacon in the night, i'll burn relentlessly until
    My juice runs dry, i'll construckt a rock of tempered beams and
    Trusses and equip it with a million tiny suns, i'll install upon the
    Roof on my compartment and place tinfoil on my floor and on my walls
    Then i'll turn on the light... And i'll burn lika a roman fucking
    Candle, like a chasm in the night, for a miniscule duration, ecstatic
    Immolation, incorrigible delight

  3. Get OffVer letra 1:43


    letra de Get Off

    Lascivious, it's all that I can think of as I drag my feet, searching
    Lika a diogenes, dangerous, the adjectives of the decasde and of your
    Alluring intricacies, I cah see your green-screen mentality and I can
    Feel the sting of it's consequence, and I know I shouldn't but it's too
    Much to ignore, an emotion I deplore, every time I look at you, I just
    Want to do it, I can clench my fist right through it but I just want
    To get off, rectilinear, this direction we've been heading never
    Realizing we are on a runaway machine, angular, the momentum that does
    Turn us one step further on our ladder, one more turn toward the east,
    I realize your green-screen mentality and I know it is shared by many
    More, I know it is quite impossible but I am damned to find a way to
    Revolve the other way, every time I scrutinize I just say "screw it",
    We're on a ride down a blind conduit and I just want to get off

  4. BlenderheadVer letra 1:12


    letra de Blenderhead

    Flying through a dark prismatic tunnel on a carousel, the earth is
    Turning and you know it very well, your mind is reeling lika ten
    Helicopters wheeling and you're gonna hit the ceiling lika a mallet on
    A bell, hey, blenderhead, they're starting to ask questions, your
    Transgressions ar a danger flashing sign, challenge conventions and
    Radiate your splendor and feel those flywheels curn your blenderhead,
    Tally up the gleaming ventured on a wishing well, each shining trinket
    H as a story it can tell, your moments pining like those tales all
    Intertwining can become the rusted lining of a deep neglected shell,
    Hey, blenderhead, you ask so many questions, your confusion's a life-
    Affirming sign, break from tradition and carry on with valor and feel
    Those flywheels churn you blenderhead

  5. The Positive Aspect Of Negative ThinkingVer letra 0:57


    letra de The Positive Aspect Of Negative Thinking

    Let's gather 'round the carcass of the old deflated beast,
    We have seen it through the accolades and rested in its lea,
    Syntactic is our elegance, incisive our disease,
    The swath endogenous of ourselves will be our quandary,

    We've nestled in its hollow and we've suckled at its breast,
    Grandiloquent in attitude, impassioned yet inept,
    Frivolous gavel our design, ludicrous our threat,
    Excursive expeditons leave us holding less and less,

    So what does it mean?
    When we tell ourselves it's only for a while we've been deceived
    And it's only for a moment that the treasures of our day
    Make life easier to complicate, the treasure thrown away,

    I'm so tired of all the fucked up minds
    Of all the terrorist religions and their bullshit lines,
    Of all the hand-me-downs from all industrial crimes
    All the weeping mothers and those who are led so blind,
    From the plastic protests and the hands of time
    And the pursuit of mirth and all hating kind

  6. AnesthesiaVer letra 3:04


    letra de Anesthesia

    Everybody is talking about the girl who went and killed the delivery man,
    But she looks so kind and gentle, it just doesn't stand to reason,
    I saw her right there just like the other night as stately as a slot machine,
    But when she looked my way something mad as hell came over me,

    Anesthesia, mona lisa, i've got a little gun, here comes oblivion,
    I never loved you, how did you find me? the cops will never prove complicity now,
    Anna..., all good children go to heaven!

    I remember your face that august night when we lied about the beautiful time to come
    And that crazy old man who came much too late and caused a chain reaction,
    I've been hanging out here for eleven long years like a church mouse wondering where the cat has gone,
    And looking at you now is driving me to distraction.

    Anesthesia, mona lisa, i've got a little gun, here comes oblivion,
    I never loved you, how did you find me? the cops will never prove complicity now,
    Anna..., all good children go to heaven!

  7. Flat Earth SocietyVer letra 2:23


    letra de Flat Earth Society

    Lie lie lie... the full moon is rising over dark water and the fools
    Below are picking up sticks and the man in the gallows lies
    Permanently waiting for the doctors to come back and tend to him, the
    Flat earth society is meeting here today, singing happy little lies
    And the bright ship humana is sent far away with grave
    Determination... and no destination, lie lie lie... yeah, nothing
    Feels better than a spray of clean water and the whistling wind on a
    Calm summer night but you'd better believe that down in their quarters
    The men are holding on for their dear lives, the flat earth society is
    Somewhere far away, with their candlesticks and compasses and the
    Bright ship humana is well on it's way with grave determination... and
    No destination, lie lie lie, ad inifinitum

  8. Faith AloneVer letra 3:40


    letra de Faith Alone

    Heard a sermon from a creaky pul pit with no one in the nave
    I paid a visit to the synagogue and I left there feeling blame
    No one could tell me what to do, they had not the capacity to answer me

    What the world needs now is some answers to our problems
    We can't buy more time 'cause our tender isn't valid
    If your soul needs love you can get consoled by pity
    But it looks as though faith alone won't sustain us no more

    Watched the scientists throw up their hands conceding, "progress will resolve it all"
    Saw the manufacturers of earth's debris ignore another green peace call
    No one could tell me what to do, no one had the ability to answer me

    What the world needs now is some accountability
    We can't buy more time 'cause time won't accept our money
    If your soul needs love you can always have my pity
    But it looks as though faith alone won't sustain us no more...

    What the world needs now is some answers to our problems
    We can't buy more time 'cause our tender isn't valid
    What the world needs now is some accountability
    If your soul needs love you can get consoled by pity
    But faith alone won't sustain us anymore
    Faith alone won't sustain us anymore [to fade]

  9. EntropyVer letra 2:24


    letra de Entropy

    Random blobs of power expressed as that which we all disregard,
    Ordered states of nature on a scale that no one thinks about, don't
    Speak to me of anarchy or peace of calm revolt, man, we're in a play
    Of slow decay orchestrated by boltzmann, it's entropy, it's not a
    Human issue, entropy, it's matter of course, entropy, enegery at all
    Levels, entropy, from it you can not divorce and your pathetic moans
    Of suffrage tend to lose all significance, extinction, degradation;
    The natural outcomes of our ordered lives, power, motivation;
    Temporary fixtures for which we strive, something in our synapses
    Assures us we're ok but in our desequilibrium we simply can not stay,
    It's entropy..., a stolid proposition from a man unkempt as I, my
    Affectatious I can not rectify, but we are out of equilibrium
    Unnaturally, a pang of conciousness at death and then you will agree

  10. Against The GrainVer letra 2:09


    letra de Against The Grain

    Three thousand miles of wilderness overcome by the flow, a lonely
    Restitution of pavement, pomp and show, I seek a thousand answers, I
    Find but one or two, I maintain no discomfiture, my path again
    Renewed, against the grain, that's where i'll stay, swimming upstream,
    I maintain against the grain, here labelled as a lunatic, sequestered
    And content, there ignored and defeated by the government, ther's an
    Oriented public who's magnetic force does pull, but away from the
    Potential of the individual, against the grain..., the flow is getting
    Stronger with smaller increments of time and eddies of new ideas are
    Increasingly hard to find, you need all that the other has, it is your
    Right to seize the day, but in all your acquisitions you will soone be
    Swept away, against the grain..., there's a common consensus and a
    Uncomfortable cheer, a reverberating chorus that anyone can hear, it
    Sings "leve your cares behind you, just grab tenaciously", this
    Lulling sense of purpose will destroy us rapidly, against the grain...

  11. Operation RescueVer letra 2:08


    letra de Operation Rescue

    It is an S. O. S. Sent out telepathically, signs of our distress don't
    Allow complacency, we need restoration now of our integrity and a
    Drastic bold reminder of our morality, the rectifying troop is here,
    The ones we have needed all these yers to stop the heious wrongdoings
    And verify our moral benevolence as a people, operation rescue,
    They're here to right our fall, they have heard a troubled call,
    Operation rescue, you may wonder where they come from, but I just
    Wonder why they're here at all, life ever-after is what they're in the
    Business for, see them brandish the key to their kingdoms door, it's
    Persuasive, it's a part of yoy and me but it's not overwhelming as
    They wish it to be, if no one believed in fairy tales there would be
    Nothing they could do but fail yet everywhere we look someone is
    Trying to reassure our moral benevolence as a poeple, operation
    Rescue..., you may wonder where they come from, but I just wonder what
    Compels them all

  12. God SongVer letra 1:38


    letra de God Song

    And did those feet in ancient times trod on america's pastuers of
    Green? And did that anthropocentric god wane with their thoughts and
    Beliefs all unseen? I don't think so, he's up there with the others
    Laying low, vying with those who you've traded your life to to bless
    Your soul, and have they told you how to think, cleansed your mind of
    Sepsis and automony? Or have you escaped scrutiny, and regaled
    Yourself with depravity? Now we all see, "religion is just synthetic
    Frippery, unnecessary in our expanding global cultural efficiency" and
    Don't you fear this impasse we have built to our future? Ever so near,
    And oh so austere

  13. 21st Century (Digital Boy) 2:50
  14. Misery And FamineVer letra 2:35


    letra de Misery And Famine

    So proud a history, replete with sanctity, orbs in their harmony, they
    Sing their code to me, have you ever heard yourself the orbit that you
    Are in? The terse, oppressive blanket that's instilled here by our
    Spin, it's misery and famin, it's a force we cannot see, misery and
    Famine, it compels us naturally, misery and famine, great ellipse, we
    Bend to thee, misery and famine, just accept your vagrancy, others who
    Bear no name, who feel that life's a game, my verse they will defame,
    We suffer all the same, they pay no regard to their position or their
    Speed, but the firmament still covers them with it's malevolent seed,
    It's misery and famine..., "you look for meaning in things no one
    Comprehends, you feel no affinity to the rabble we're in", sources of
    Inquiry have nothing to portend, they will perplex us all until the
    Coming end, a feeling of despair, hungry and full of care, we resent
    Everywhere the fortune that we share, "this earth could be a better
    Place" is a concept I condone, given our pathetic course our destiny
    Is known, it's misery and famine...

  15. UnacceptableVer letra 1:44


    letra de Unacceptable

    Irreducible is the word for today, plastic compounds and nuclear
    Waste, what the hell is the matter with the pople on this planet? Have
    We all gone insane? The stigma of industrial progress killing us over
    And over agin, one part per trillion... Unacceptable, on part per
    Billion... Unacceptable, one part per million... Unacceptable, this
    Mammoth program set upon us courtesy of the you. S. A., inexcusable are
    The men before our time, I'd like to kick their ass for what they left
    Behind, cancer-causing chemicals, ozone-depleting aerosols, we're all
    Going to fry, so put your head between your legs and kiss your ass

    Mezclas: Karat Faye
  16. Quality Or QuantityVer letra 1:34


    letra de Quality Or Quantity

    Offer me eternity, and i'll trade a cup of coffee and a dime, looking
    For a handout on behalf of those who have so little time, but who
    Wants to live on just 70 cents a day? Padding your pockets doesn't
    Make this a better place, "cereal and water" is a feast for some you
    Say, your price-tag on existence can't cover your double face, quality
    Or quantity: a choice you have to make, dipping in the icing, bringing
    Home the largest turkey from the field, breaking all the piggy banks,
    Scooping up the booty, licking all the right holes, bolstering the
    Payroll, why reduce life to a dollar amount per day? And why let the
    World think this is the american way? Your uneaten greens ar a feast
    For some you say, survival and living are concepts you can't equate,
    Quality or quantity don't tell me they're the same

  17. Walk AwayVer letra 1:52


    letra de Walk Away

    Shut off the T. V. And peel off those sunday gloves, and i'll stain the
    Clean that you've been counting, old mr. Fletcher passed by here
    Today, after 40 years of toil he just stood up and walked away,
    Fantastic the panic that showed in his eyes, he shrugged when I asked
    Him about it, he said "young man pay heed, you listen well to what I
    Say, now there comes a time for a man to walk away", walk away, i'll
    Be a parade, and i'll be determined that no one shall dissuade on my
    Way, i'll sure take some time to burn all the bridges that I'm leaving
    Behind, he passed by again and he was shivering from the cold, I'm not
    Sure but I think that he was trying, he told me about the weather and
    Something old to pay, "but tomorrow", he said, "i'm gonna surely walk away"
