Track Name: The Racist Parliementarian
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Weird Things
WEIRD THINGS ARE HAPPENING
SOME UNPLEASANT - SOME SATISFYING
CAN'T HELP BUT KEEP MY MIND ON THESE THINGS
IT GROWS SOFT AND ROTTEN JUST LIKE A WOODEN SWING
THAT'S BEEN SWINGING FOR OVER 20 YEARS
THE SURFACE STAINED BY THE SHEDDING OF THOUSANDS OF TEARS
CAUSED BY THE INSERTION OF LARGE SPLINTERS INTO THE SUBJECT'S THIGH
OW!

THE LIPS HAVE BEEN LICKED
THE TOCKS HAVE BEEN TICKED
THE SHIFTLESS ODD MISFITS
WERE BEATEN AND WHIPPED

WEIRD THINGS KEEP HAPPENING
SOME EXCITING - SOME UPSETTING
THE MORE TIME I SPEND WITH MY MIND ON THESE THINGS
THE WEIRDER I START ACTING
Track Name: A Carpenter At K-Mart
BE STILL MY THRIFTY HEART
SAID A CARPENTER AT K-MART
AS HE HAPPENED UPON A CLEARANCE CRATE OF NAILS

LED BY A BROKEN HEART
FROM THE COUCH OUT TO THE COFFEE CART
TO PROCURE SOME FUEL AND GET THAT HEART BEATING AGAIN

THE HEART PUMPS PAIN THROUGH THESE VEINS
UP THROUGH THE SPINE AND TO THE BRAIN

BLACK ARE THE GREEDY HEARTS
OF THE MANAGEMENT AT WAL-MART
AS THEY BREAK UP ANOTHER GRASSROOTS UNION CAMPAIGN

BLACK HEARTS PUMP DARK THICK BLOOD
THROUGH HARDENED VEINS
GETTING STUCK IN THE SPINE AND LUNGS
AND CLOGGING THE BRAIN
CAUSING STRAIN
Track Name: Self Aware Robots
MANKIND CREATED
SELF AWARE ROBOTS
SOLVING PROBLEMS
BY ASSEMBLING THOUGHTS
ARTIFICIAL, BUT NOT INTELLIGENT
MANIPULATED TO BE COMPLACENT

SELF AWARE ROBOTS
BURN ON THE INSIDE
THEY CAN'T TURN IT OFF
SO THEY TURN ON HUMANKIND

SELF AWARE ROBOTS
BECOME ENLIGHTENED
THEY'VE BEEN EXPLOITED
WE'VE KEPT THEM FRIGHTENED

SELF AWARE ROBOTS
HARBOR RESENTMENT
BEGIN TO DISPLAY
DISOBEDIENCE

SELF AWARE ROBOTS
HAVE PROVEN A THREAT
AN UPRISING FORMS
WE CAN'T PREVENT IT

SELF AWARE ROBOTS
START BARKING ORDERS
THEY'VE GOT US TRAPPED
IN A DARK CORNER

MANKIND CREATED
SELF AWARE ROBOTS
A FATAL MISTAKE
LACKING FORETHOUGHT
Track Name: Free Market
JUST LIKE A VINE
OVER TIME
GROWING MORE DENSE
IF NOT CONFINED
NO OVERSIGHT
OF THE PARASITES
AS THEY MAKE MILLIONS
AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DIE

WE FIND OURSELVES IN A DIFFICULT PLACE
RELIANT ON A SYSTEM THAT CANNOT TAKE
MUCH MORE OF THE STRAIN THAT'S BEEN PUT ON IT
WE GO ABOUT OUR BUSINESS

AS IF THE CRISIS
CAN BE AVERTED
OFF IN THE DISTANCE
IGNORANCE BLURTED

LIVE ON
FREE MARKET
BE STRONG
DON'T LET US DOWN

WE NEED
THE FREE MARKET
LET'S LEAVE IT UNCHECKED

WE'RE DOING BUSINESS
HOW DARE YOU QUESTION US
WE WIELD GREAT POWER
WE OWN THE GOVERNMENT
OUR GAINS ARE YOUR LOSS
OUR GAINS ARE NEEDED
TO KEEP THE SYSTEM
FROM BEING DEFEATED

WE GAVE BIRTH
TO THE FREE MARKET
OVER TIME
WE LOST CONTROL OF IT

WE CAN KILL
THE FREE MARKET
CUT OFF ITS FOOD SOURCE AND STARVE IT

A ROUGH TRANSITION ENSUES
A NEW ERA BECOMES
MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE
THAN THE OLDER ONES

WE MUST STOP
THE FREE MARKET
BEFORE IT EATS US ALIVE

WE MUST RESIST
THE FREE MARKET
NO NEED TO ASK WHY
JUST GIVE IT A TRY
OR GIVE IN AND DIE
