Track Name: Cryptocrat
This is out of hand
It has hit the fan
with no warning
Just try to sleep
and hope it greets you better
in the morning
All the sterile cries
that the butcher pries
from the weeping of a willow
Your grin is wincing
Dreaming-Mincing
tongues on your pillow

As we try to evade the rumors
we've taken after
Serrated like the open tin
of canned laughter

(Chorus)
And I'm reading the fine print
in the dark, tryin' to ruin my eyes
So I don't have to bear witness
to the fruition of your lies
And this thing that you call a gift
And this thing that you call a surprise
are just mounds of blank paperwork
in which your empty heart is disguised

I have hit a rut
I'm a hunger slut
puking in the gutter
How the congregation
at the celebration
starts to mutter
Tries to justify
how the shit of the pie
to the suffering is allocated
In the virgin land
Where the spurted gland
of the good lord masturbated

(chorus) x1

Shapeless in the road
the dead beast that you goad
Cancer eats the node
Engines unstarted
When King Dumb has cum
he sits and sucks his thumb
He flicks the famine crumbs
of broken bargain
You've gotta pay to get your slice of health
Keep your poor sick fingers off our wealth

(Chorus) x1
Track Name: Beef on the Hoof
(REFRAIN: x2

All this griping
All the time
All your words
like the squealing of unslaughtered swine
Shriek and whine
All your groans
All your asinine lines
What is mine
I'll keep
Far from your crude confines)

Languid life
How the fuck pusher pimps
The endless expense
to unpleasurable chimps
These lethal toys
make a sloppy friction
This real now
different than the depiction

(CHORUS)

Shame face - Cut to the chase
Taste the disgrace
Haste neutered space
Gallows waste

Shame face - Cut to the chase
Taste the disgrace
Haste neutered space
Playing a faded ace

Fire fight
Humankind kindling
Counting supplies
and the wise are dwindling
I'll scratch your back
If you smile as you suck
the putrid lack
of my mindless dump truck

(CHORUS)

Shame face - Cut to the chase
Taste the disgrace
Haste neutered space
Gallows waste

Shame face - Cut to the chase
Taste the disgrace
Haste neutered space
Playing a faded ace

(REFRAIN: x2

All this griping
All the time
All your words
like the squealing of unslaughtered swine
Shriek and whine
All your groans
All your asinine lines
What is mine
I'll keep
Far from your crude confines)
Track Name: Fad Quiz
The eccentric postman
rings the brothel bell
Tumors in the basement
start to swell

(Chorus)

Gauging our resemblance
by the mood
when we act the most crude
Fawning for forgiveness
when construed
as improper attitude
Caging lurid lightning
We're just food
sizzle on the griddle

Make the body conform
to the mangled mind
In the scavenger hunt
you can't find

(Chorus) x1

Don't look the snake in the eyes - Babe
Master the plain disguise - Babe
Under the smoke screened my's - Babe
Under the mirror our hero dies
Caught in the specters tries - Babe
Knotted and strung up in lies - Babe
Under the no surprise - Babe
Under the cries

WE ARE THE FLESH FORSOOK
UP BY OURSELVES TOOK
AMONG THE MANY OTHERS
CLAMORING- x2
Track Name: Gulch
We've been hanging by
the skin of a last loose tooth
Diggin' through all this synthetic treasure
and all I want is the truth
What order does disdain
chaos condones
Been tryin' to find you baby
in this gulch of lonesome bones

In the breakdown
everything's sirens and catastrophe
All this mortal peril
wont just let us be
Try to love you
through cacophony

They're tearing down that derelict house
at the edge of town
The old man who lives there looks like
a mutant psycho clown
He tried to make a final call
the police had blocked the phones
They buried him when they were done
in this gulch of lonesome bones

In the shakedown
you've become selved separately
One of you is feral
the other's charity
Try to shove you
through the dichotomy

Put me out to pasture
Dotards of a dull rapture
Rules you cannot master
Victims you can never capture
Onward set to wander
into the ever yonder.
