Track Name: The Guts - (Part One)
THROUGH EARS - THROUGH CUTS
THEY GO - THEY MUST
TO LIVE THEY FEAST
UPON THE GUTS
BURROW BENEATH
THE FLESH WITH LUST
THEY SEEK TO EAT
ALL OF THE GUTS
THEN ONCE CONSUMED
THE HUNT RESUMES
IT'S BANK OR BUST
YOU MUST HAVE GUTS
THEY SEEK A HOST
ONCE FOUND - THEY BOAST
REMOVE THE CRUST
DEVOUR THE GUTS
Track Name: The Bassturd & DJ N Wee - Fade II Beige
HERE IT IS MOTHERFUCKERS
A MESSAGE OF TRUTH AND HOPE
A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR THE CLUELESS THAT WILL HELP YOU COPE
WITH THE FACT THAT THE WORLD IN WHICH WE ROT IS FUCKING WHACK
HAVE I HOOKED YOU? GOOD! NOW SIT THE FUCK BACK
WE GOT SOME BACKGROUND TO COVER BEFORE YOU CAN DISCOVER
THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT THE WAY THE WORLD IN WHICH WE ROT IS GOVERNED
THE DEPTH OF THE CORRUPTION THREATENS SERIOUS DISRUPTIONS OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY, SO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS
FIRST, RECOGNIZE WHERE THE TRUE POWER LIES
IT'S IN THE HANDS OF THE CORPORATIONS THAT HAVE LONGSTANDING TIES TO MANY SEASONED POLITICIANS WHO RELY ON CONTRIBUTIONS FROM FILTHY RICH CEOS WHO WISH TO KEEP POLLUTING
OUR RIVERS, LAKES, AND OCEANS WITH A POTENT TOXIC POTION
SO MR. SPEAKER, I PLACE BEFORE THE FLOOR THIS MOTION
START UP A P.R. CAMPAIGN DESIGNED TO INFORM THE CITIZENRY OF OUR COUNTRY
THE POWER LIES IN HOW THEY CHOOSE TO SPEND THEIR MONEY

WE'RE TOLD TO CELEBRATE ABUNDANCE
BELIEVE THE MYTH AND YOU MIGHT GET RICH
OR YOU MIGHT BREAK EVEN OR EVEN GO BUST
SELFLESSNESS TO ASHES - TRUST TO DUST
I DON'T PUT MY FAITH IN MUCH MAN
I'M WISE TO THAT SCAM
FAITH IS CHUMP'S BAIT
RELIGION IS A SHAM
BUT NOW WE SEE THESE WACKOS MISINTERPRETATIONS OF MYTHOLOGY BECOME POLICY
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST - ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
DOES NOT THE CONSTITUTION STATE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE?
SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND
THEIR AIN'T NO DEBATE
THERE CAN'T BE NO CLEAN SLATE WHEN THEOLOGY MATES WITH POLICY
ALL WE CAN DO IS PRAY
BUT OUR SINFUL BEHAVIOR CAN'T BE PRAYED AWAY MAN
OUR SPITEFUL DEMEANOR REVEALS A MEANER STREAK
A BLEAKER FREAK WOULD SPEAK MEEKLY - WEARILY STATING A WARNING THAT THE MORNING SHALL BRING DREADFUL THINGS

MAN HOW I WISH MY WHIT WAS SHARP AND GRITTY
I'D DRIVE AROUND THE CITY SCREAMING "HERE KITTY KITTY!"
WHISTLING A DITTY BY THE PRETTY THINGS
OR WATCHING "LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING"
I'VE HAD A FLING WITH DANGER
I'VE FLIRTED WITH DISASTER
I HAVE YET TO MEET MY MAKER BUT I HAVE MET MY MASTER
THAT BASTARD INSISTED THAT I REFRAIN
FROM DOING ANYTHING THAT SONICALLY COULD STIMULATE YOUR BRAIN
FROM THE GREAT-PLAINS OF THE MIDWEST I HAIL
THUS ONE MUST CONCLUDE MY SHREWD DEMEANOR NEVER FAILS
TO SHOCK ALL YOU P.C. YUPPIES IN CALIFORNIA
HERE, GO LIKE THIS... YOU GOT A LITTLE ON YA'
\NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, SMOOTH JAZZ, OR SOFT ROCK
THE BASSTURD IS BRINGING HELL TO ALL YOU FUCKERS' BLOCKS
GLOCK FREE IS THE LIFE FOR ME
DIRTY IS THE AIR I BREATHE

IF YOU CAN'T RESPECT THAT YOUR WHOLE PERSPECTIVE IS PLAYED
MAYBE YOU'LL LOVE ME WHEN I FADE TO BEIGE
(REPEAT)
Track Name: How We Deal
CHEWING GUM AND LAYING IN A FIELD
THAT'S HOW WE FEEL
THAT'S HOW WE DEAL
Track Name: Fedz
BIG DUMB MOTHERFUCKERS THROWING 'ROUND THEIR WEIGHT
HARBOR HATE FOR INGRATES WITH PROSTHETIC PROSTATES
EXPLODING OUT THE GATE LIKE AN IRATE PRIMATE
I DEFLATE BLOATED EGOS WITH TACTFUL DEBATES
AND THEN STATE FOR THE RECORD THE BASSTURD'S POSITION
I'M HOPING AND WISHING THAT THIS DREADFUL MISSION
WILL BRING TO FRUITION AN ERA OF PEACE
OR AT LEAST A LARGE FEAST ABSENT OF FATTY GREASE
I FEEL WEAK IN THE KNEES - STRONG IN THE HEAD
MY ACTIONS ATTRACT THE ATTENTION OF THE FEDZ
THEY SEE RED WHEN I SPEAK OF HELPING THE DOWNTRODDEN
EVERYTHING IS ROTTEN DOWN HERE AT THE BOTTOM
YOU JUST LEARN TO DEAL - LIVE MEAL TO MEAL
KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN - NEVER SQUEAL
BREAK THE SEAL - STEAL THE PRIZE - GET AWAY IN DISGUISE
MAKE UP A BUNCH OF LIES TO TELL THESE GUYS

PARANOID WHEN YOU'RE FUCKING WITH THE FEDZ
DON'T LET THEM GET INTO YOUR HEAD
KEEP YOUR NOSE CLEAN AND YOUR PROFILE LOW
BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT MAYBE NOBODY IN THE WORLD SHOULD EVER KNOW

IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN HOW INSANE I FEEL
I DRAIN MY BRAIN OFTEN - THE RESULTS REVEAL
A CONFLICTED HUMORIST SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING
THAT CAN'T BE FOUND SLUMMING IT UP WITH A JUNKIE
SO I CONTINUE TO GO THROUGH THE MOTIONS
CRISS-CROSSING THE OCEAN - APPLYING HAND LOTION
CONCOCTING A POTION OF LETHAL TOXINS
GET SEVERELY TWISTED EVERY SO OFTEN

PARANOID WHEN YOU'RE FUCKING WITH THE FEDZ
DON'T LET THEM GET INTO YOUR HEAD
KEEP YOUR NOSE CLEAN AND YOUR PROFILE LOW
BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT MAYBE NOBODY IN THE WORLD SHOULD EVER KNOW
Track Name: Lowly Son Of A Bitch
IF EVER LOSING YOUR GRIP
REMEMBER NOT TO FLIP
OR OTHERS ARE SURE TO QUIP
THAT DUDE IS A SON OF A BITCH

IF EVER FEELING THE NEED
TO INHALE SOME SPEED
YOUR MOOD WILL NOT BE ENRICHED
AIN'T THAT A SON OF A BITCH

IF EVER DISASTER STRIKES
AND YOU ARE NOWHERE IN SIGHT
DESPITE A NEED - YOU RESIST
A LAZY SON OF A BITCH

IF EVERYTHING COMES EASY\
YET YOU CONTINUE TO BE
A DREADFUL, DIFFICULT PRICK
THEN YOU'RE A SON OF A BITCH

\WIPE THAT SMILE OFF YOUR FACE
YOU PITIFUL DISGRACE
LIFE AIN'T JUST ABOUT GETTING RICH
YOU GREEDY SON OF A BITCH

DON'T JUSTIFY IT TO ME
I AIN'T NO JUDGE OR JURY
I SIMPLY WISH TO EXIST
A LOWLY SON OF A BITCH

UNCOMPROMISING DESIRE
TO ASPIRE TO HIGHER
LEVELS OF FOOLISHNESS
YOU SIMPLE SON OF A BITCH

KEEP AN OPEN MIND
TRY NOT TO BE UNKIND
AND YOUR MOOD WILL BE ENRICHED
YOU SILLY SON OF A BITCH

IT AIN'T ALL BOUT BEING HATEFUL
BOISTEROUS OR DISTASTEFUL
TRY NOT TO BE A DICK
YOU FUCKING SON OF A BITCH

STUPIDITY MAY PERSIST
WITH IT WE'LL ALWAYS EXIST
JUST LEARN TO ROLL WITH IT
YOU LOWLY SON OF A BITCH

YOU LOWLY SON OF A BITCH
YOU LOWLY SON OF A BITCH

Track Name: What Will Come Of This?
THERE'S NO BUSINESS
LIKE THIS BUSINESS
LIKE BIG BUSINESS
THE MARKETPLACE
SHALL ALWAYS DICTATE
OUR COLLECTIVE FATE

BUT WHAT WILL COME OF THIS?
IGNORANCE IS BLISS?
WHAT WILL COME OF THIS?

WHY DO WE
HAVE FAITH IN THE
ECONOMY?

INVENTED WANT
INFLATED WORTH
FORCE US TO WORK

BUT WHAT WILL COME OF THIS?
IGNORANCE IS BLISS?
WHAT WILL COME OF THIS?

WHAT WILL COME OF THIS?
IGNORANCE IS BLISS
WHAT WILL COME OF THIS?
Track Name: The Dumb
(Instrumental)
Track Name: High Stakes
HIGH STAKES - KNEES SHAKE - COVERED IN SWEAT
HOPING THAT THE DEALER WILL ACCEPT MY BET
YOU GOT YOUR HIGH STAKES - IT TAKES A STRANGE BREED
EVERYTHING IS THE ONLY THING THAT MEANS A THING TO ME
HIGH STAKES - HANDSHAKES - DEALS ARE SEALED
OVER DRINKS AND EXPENSIVE MEALS
HIGH STAKES - IT TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF GRIT
TO GET A LEG UP AND RISE ABOVE THE SHIT
HIGH STAKES - FORSAKE ANYTHING LESS
VERY FEW WILL SUCCEED - MANY WIND UP A MESS
HIGH STAKES - LAY IT ALL ON THE LINE
WINNING BIG NOW AND THEN - LOSING MOST OF THE TIME
HIGH STAKES - IT TAKES WELL-PLOTTED MOVES
YOU CAN'T WIN SHIT UNLESS YOU GOT A LOT TO LOSE
HIGH STAKES - SOMETIMES YOU'RE DEALT A BAD HAND
THERE'S NO GUARANTEE THAT ANYTHING WILL GO AS PLANNED
OH NO

A COMPULSION I CAN'T EXPLAIN
I FIND THAT I CANNOT REFRAIN
FROM RAISING THE STAKES VERY HIGH
IT'S NOT THAT I CONSCIOUSLY TRY
AS IF DRAW TO THESE GRAND EVENTS
PRESENTED WITH PREDICAMENTS
THE SCALES OF WHICH ARE VAST AND GRIM
THE ODDS TO WIN ARE VERY SLIM

HIGH STAKES - MISTAKES CAN'T BE MADE
WHEN A HAND IS PLAYED WELL MOTHERFUCKERS GETTING PAID
HIGH STAKES - THROW ANOTHER ROLL OF THE DICE
THERE'S NO ROOM FOR SECOND GUESSING WHEN YOU CAN'T PLAY TWICE
YOU GOT YOUR HIGH STAKES - SLEEK SNAKES CROWDING THE FIELD
EARNESTLY NEGOTIATING HORRID BACK-DOOR DEALS
HIGH STAKES PLAYERS BE THE CREAM OF THE CROP
MANY DREAM - SOME SCHEME - BUT VERY FEW GET TO THE TOP
OH NO

MOTHERFUCKER!
Track Name: If I Were Second Best
I'D BE ECSTATIC MAN IF I WERE 2ND BEST
LOSE MY LUSTER AND ABORT MY QUEST
TO BE NUMBER ONE
UNCOMMON SUGGESTIONS
RAISE SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS REGRESSION
I MENTION THIS ONLY TO KILL TIME
SO I CAN COME UP WITH ANOTHER DOPE LINE TO RHYME
PURPLE SLIME - LIKE GHOSTBUSTERS ECTOPLASM
CAN YOU FATHOM A CRIPPLING MENTAL SPASM?
RESPECT SHALL BE EARNED LIKE MINIMUM WAGE
MAN, FUCK BOB SEAGER - EAGERLY TURN THE PAGE
IN MY ROCK & ROLL GUIDEBOOK
REFERENCE DR. HOOK, ZAPPA, COOPER, GBV,
THE FROGS, AND SECRET CHIEFS 3
WHO WANTS TO HUG A JUNKIE?
WHO GOT AIDS FROM A MONKEY?
WHY WHITE PEOPLE CALLED HONKY
OR DEMOCRATS DONKEY?
THAT IMPLIES THEY'RE ASSES
LACKING TACT AND CLASS
YEAH, IT'S TRUE - THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS SCREWED
LEST RENEWED SHREWD DUDES SHALL EXCLUDE ALL BUT PRUDES
AND THE CASHLESS LOWER-CLASS GETS DUPED AND LUBED UP
LIKE DUMB FUCKS - WE DONE WHAT THEY TOLD US
WHO QUESTIONS INTENTIONS, OR ACTIONS, OR MOTIVES?
AN ENLIGHTENED ELITE GROUP OF SKEPTICS COMPETES TO
FIND THE COMPLETE TRUTH - USING PROOF
MAN, RELIGION IS MYTHOLOGY NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
OR JUDGED LITERALLY OR HISTORICALLY - YO
Track Name: The Radical Indifference Of The Exploited
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Human Machine
AN ASTOUNDING SCENE CONFOUNDED ME
HUMANS ACTING LIKE MACHINES
MOVEMENTS THAT SEEMED RHYTHMICALLY
TO SYNCHRONIZE PERFECTLY
BEFORE LONG IT SEEMED TO ASSIMILATE ME
MY BODY BEHAVED DIFFERENTLY
GOALS WERE ACHIEVED EFFORTLESSLY
AS IF IT JUST CAME NATURALLY

WE'RE THE MACHINE
THE HUMAN MACHINE
THE HUMAN MACHINE DOES EVERYTHING
WE'RE THE MACHINES
LABORING TO BE PART OF THE HUMAN BEING

WITHOUT US IT FAILS
WITHOUT IT WE FALL
WE'RE TRAPPED WITH OUR BACKS AGAINST THE WALL
WE MUST CARRY ON
WE CAN NEVER LOSE STEAM
OR WE'LL BREAK THIS COMPLEX MACHINE

WE'RE THE MACHINE
THE HUMAN MACHINE
THE HUMAN MACHINE DOES EVERYTHING
PERPETUALLY EVOLVING INTO MORE EFFICIENT MACHINES
Track Name: Why Dew Eye?
WHY DO I DO THE WORK I DO?
WHY DO I TRY TO JUST MAKE DUE?
WITH WHAT I GOT
WHY AM I NOT
INSPIRED TO ACQUIRE A LOT
OF NEEDLESS THINGS
THAT SEEM TO BRING
WITH THEM NO ZEN
JUST BURDENING TURMOIL AND STRIFE
GREAT SACRIFICE
WHY DO I THINK IT WOULD BE NICE
TO LIVE WITHIN MY MEAGER MEANS
STAY KEEN TO WHAT IS HAPPENING
MANEUVERING THROUGH THIS BIG MESS
MINDING MY OWN DAMN BUSINESS
WHY DO I CARE WHEN OTHERS DON'T?
WHY DO I TRY WHEN OTHERS WON'T?
WHY DO I FEEL WHAT OTHERS DO?
WHY DO I ALWAYS THINK THINGS THROUGH?
WHY DO I OFTEN EXPECT
THE OUTCOME TO BE PERFECT?
WHY DO I HAVE SO MANY FLAWS?
WHY DOES THIS GIVE ME SUCH GREAT PAUSE?
IN TIME CAN I BE TRAINED TO BE
EXCEEDINGLY MORE HAPPY
THAN I AM NOW, OR AM I DOOMED
TO BE CONSUMED BY DREADFUL GLOOM

WHY DO I WANT TO DIE?
WHY DO I WANT TO DIE?

WHY DO I ALWAYS RAMBLE ON?
WHY DO I WRITE SO MANY SONGS?
WHY DOES THIS BLAND INSANITY
SOMETIMES MOVE TO INSPIRE ME
TO GET TO WORK - TO DO THE DEED
TO SWEAT AND BLEED - FULFILL A NEED
FOR BRIGHTER HOPES AND BETTER DAYS
FOR ANYONE THAT CAN BE SAVED
WHY DO I OFTEN SEEM TO BELIEVE
WE'RE OF A WILDLY DIFFERENT BREED
HIGHLY EVOLVED - CALM AND CONTROLLED
A TRULY UNNERVING SIGHT TO BEHOLD
SO HOLD ON TIGHT BECAUSE IT JUST MIGHT
GET CRAZY UP IN HERE TONIGHT
WHY WOULD I ASK FOR ANY MORE?
WHY DO WE BOTHER TO KEEP SCORE?

WHY DO I WANT TO DIE?
WHY DO I WANT TO DIE?
Track Name: Bean Bag
I WISH I HAD A BEAN BAG
THAT I COULD RELAX IN
I WISH I HAD A BEAN BAG CHAIR
BUT I DON'T HAVE A BEAN BAG
BECAUSE I HAVE CATS
THAT WOULD MOST CERTAINLY TEAR
A HOLE INTO MY BEAN BAG
SO I REMAIN BEAN BAGLESS
TO AVOID GETTING BEANS EVERYWHERE
IF I EVER GET A BEAN BUG
DUCT TAPE WOULD BE THE ONLY THING
KEEPING ALL THOSE TINY BEANS IN THERE

IT'S A CHOICE YOU MAKE
YOU CHOOSE ONE DAY
DO YOU WANT A CAT OR A BEAN BAG CHAIR
YOU STARE INTO THE HEAVENS AND DECLARE
IT'S NOT FAIR I HAVE TO CHOOSE
FOR BOTH THESE THINGS IMPROVE MY MOOD SO GREATLY
BUT IF I MUST I CHOOSE KITTIES

SO I DON'T HAVE A BEAN BAG
AND MY FOUL MOOD REFLECTS THAT
I DON'T HAVE A BEAN BAG CHAIR
BUT I WISH I HAD A BEAN BAG
BECAUSE I'D REALLY LIKE A BEAN BAG
TO CHILL OUT ON IN MY LAIR

IT'S A CHOICE YOU MAKE
YOU CHOOSE ONE DAY
TO GO TO THE POUND AND ADOPT A KITTY-CAT
NEVER REALIZING THE REPERCUSSIONS OF AN ACTION LIKE THAT
AND THEN YOU'RE TRAPPED
WITH YOUR CAT AND THERE'S NO TURNING BACK
YOU'RE FORCED TO USE A SOFA OR A FUTON
WHEN YOU WANT TO RELAX

I WISH I HAD A BEAN BAG
THAT I COULD RELAX IN
I WISH I HAD A BEAN BAG CHAIR
Track Name: Inmate Calls
(Skit)
Track Name: To Do
I WON'T DO WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO
Track Name: Greed Freak
I WANT TO OWN EVERYTHING
I WANT TO HAVE THE MOST BLING
I'LL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES
TO MAKE MONEY MONEY, MAKE MONEY MONEY, MAKE
THE SYSTEM WORKS IN MY FAVOR
I'M NO IMPERSONATOR
I'VE GOT THE FRESHEST FLAVOR
'TIS THE LIFESTYLE I SAVOR
I'M A GREED FREAK

STACKING CHEESE AND CHIPS AND SHIT
GOT MORE THAN JUST A LITTLE BIT
I LUST FOR WEALTH COMPULSIVELY
IT RELENTLESSLY DRIVES ME
TO LIE AND STEAL AND BEND THE RULES
WHAT'S GOOD FOR ME IS GOOD FOR YOU
VIEW THOSE WITH LESS AS FAILURES
JUNKIES, WHORES, AND JAILBIRDS
I'M A GREED FREAK

SOME LONG FOR BOOZE, COCAINE, AND SPEED
BUT I AM ADDICTED TO GREED
IT FILLS A VOID IN MY PSYCHE
YET I REMAIN INCOMPLETE
THE MORE I HAVE, THE LESS I FEEL
FOR THOSE IN NEED OF A HOT MEAL
I YELL AND SCREAM - I'M FUCKING MEAN
IF YOU WON'T GIVE ME EVERYTHING
THEN I'LL HELP MYSELF

I'LL STOP AT NOTHING TO SUCCEED
I WILL RISK LOSING EVERYTHING
I'D LEAD THE NATION INTO WAR
ALLOW STARVATION TO CLAIM SCORES
I REASON MY TWISTED BEHAVIOR
IS A PRODUCT OF HUMAN NATURE
PLACING WAGERS - TRADING STOCKS
GOT MY LIPS LOCKED ON SATAN'S COCK
I'M A GREED FREAK
Track Name: Sportsman
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Rock & Roll Funeral
ROCK & ROLL WILL NEVER DIE
AT LEAST NOT UNTIL WE KILL IT
JOHN LENNON EMBODIED ROCK & ROLL
UNTIL HE TOOK A BULLET

KURT COBAIN, JIM MORRISON
HENDRIX AND THAT DUDE FROM BLIND MELON
ELVIS PRESLEY AND JANICE JOPLIN
THEY'RE ALL DEAD

ROCK & ROLL IS HERE TO STAY
UNTIL WE SLIT ITS THROAT
GEORGE HARRISON WAS STABBED BY A MADMAN
NOW HE HAS SUNG HIS LAST NOTE

SID VICIOUS AND DARBY CRASH
FRANK ZAPPA AND THAT DUDE FROM THE CLASH
DIMEBAG DARRELL AND JOHNNY CASH
THEY'RE ALL DEAD

IT'S A ROCK & ROLL FUNERAL AND EVERYONE IS INVITED
Track Name: In The Dark
ARROGANCE TRUMPS IGNORANCE
BELLIGERENT
WE ARE IN THE DARK

WE SEEK TO KNOW EVERYTHING
FORGETTING
WE'RE STILL IN THE DARK

OUR PROGRESS CAN'T BE MEASURED
WE'RE TETHERED TOGETHER
IN THE DARK

OUR PROBLEMS SEEM TOO BIG TO SOLVE
SO WE RESOLVE
TO REMAIN IN THE DARK

WE BROKE THE BANK
IT FINALLY SANK
WE BROKE THE BANK
IT FINALLY SANK
WE BROKE THE BANK
IT FINALLY SANK
WE BROKE THE BANK
IT FINALLY SANK

OUR PROBLEMS SEEM TOO BIG TO SOLVE
SO WE RESOLVE
TO REMAIN IN THE DARK

Track Name: The Cold
I KNOW IT'S COLD
IN THIS WORLD

YOU TOOK ALL YOUR ANGER

NO MORE LOVE INSIDE YOUR HEART

WE'LL TEAR YOU APART

WE'LL TEAR YOU APART
JUST FOR A START
Track Name: Gog Factory
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Venom 2 Water
INCREDIBLY INEDIBLE - INAUDIBLE - ILLEGIBLE
INEVITABLE FATES AWAIT THE HABITANTS OF CORPORATE STATES
I HESITATE TO DESIGNATE ANYONE MY LEADER
I PLACE MY FAITH IN THE MUSICAL HEALER
BECAUSE IT SEEMS GREED BREEDS AN UNSUSTAINABLE PATH
BECAUSE IT SEEMS HATE MAKES EVERYBODY SAD
BECAUSE IT SEEMS WE'RE BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE
BECAUSE IT SEEMS AN OBSCENE CALAMITY
IS HAPPENING OR SO IT SEEMS A DEEPENING TURMOIL
HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL AND FUCKED UP THE WORLD
WHILE WE TOILED AWAY - TWIDDLED OUR THUMBS
BECAME COMPLACENT AND NUMB - ARROGANT AND DUMB
SO I MAKE IT A POINT TO POINT OUT TO PEOPLE
IT AIN'T ABOUT POLITICS OR RELIGION - PURE AND SIMPLE
I DECRY THAT BY AND BY WE'RE GONNA DIE UNLESS WE TRY
TO RECTIFY THE VILE SYSTEM ON WHICH WE'VE COME TO RELY
OPEN EYES THEN REALIZE THE TRUTH IS HIDDEN IN THE LIES
AND WHAT WAS ONCE WHAT THEY TRUSTED IS NOW WHAT THEY DESPISE
DISGUISED AS GUYS WHO SEEM TO GIVE A SHIT
ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU'RE DEALING WITH
YO - IT'S JUST A MYTH - A MIRAGE - AN ILLUSION
DESIGNED TO MISINFORM AND CAUSE WIDESPREAD CONFUSION
INTRUSIONS ON REASON USHER IN A SEASON
OF DANGEROUS THINKING, ACTING, AND BELIEVING
SEETHING WITH FRUSTRATION AT THIS BROKEN NATION
ONLY MIRACLES CAN DELIVER SALVATION
YOU HAVE THE POWER WITHIN YOU
EVERY SON AND DAUGHTER
LIKE THE HELPFUL HANDS OF CHRIST TURNING VENOM TO WATER

LIKE THE HELPFUL HANDS OF CHRIST
TURNING VENOM INTO WATER
(REPEAT)

MOTHERFUCKING GUTS
MOTHERFUCKING GUTS
MOTHERFUCKING GUTS
(REPEAT)
Track Name: Of America
WE'RE RAISED TO THINK THAT DEMOCRACY
TRUMPS ALL EVIL AND MAKES US FREE
BUT SCRUTINY HAS LED ME TO BELIEVE
THERE ARE MANY WAYS IN WHICH WE'RE DECEIVED
THE MECHANICS OF OUR CURRENT GOVERNMENT
HAVE ALLOWED THE ESTABLISHMENT
OF A FEUDALIST STATE UNDER CORPORATE CONTROL
IN WHICH THE WORKING POOR PLAY THE ROLE
OF HELPLESS PAWNS - TIRED AND POOR
OF WORKING STIFFS WHO GIVE BUT NEVER GET
OF DULLARDS AND CHUMPS WHO ALL SEEM TORN
BETWEEN THEIR GOD AND COMMON SENSE
KNOWLEDGE SHALL BE OUR ONLY DEFENSE
IN THIS - THE AGE OF IGNORANCE

WHAT'S BECOME OF AMERICA?
WITH PRIDE SHE ONCE HELD HER HEAD UP
NOW BROKE AND SICK - IT SEEMS TO ME
HER CITIZENS ARE A LETHAL DISEASE

WHAT SHALL BECOME OF AMERICA?
CAN SHE REGAIN THE PEOPLE'S TRUST?
IT MAY ALREADY BE TOO LATE
OUR FRUSTRATION HAS TURNED TO HATE
