Track Name: M.C.D.F.
Wait i'm innocent
I can't afford to go back to MCDF
now they got chained up to a seat
forty more days and i'll be out again.

Heading out to main county jail
back to j-mod and i'm on no bail
a little bird sang now i'm left to this
one bed, one sink, one cell

Please send me back to the farm
I can't sit here anymore in solitude
I got to work these idle hands
before i sink in claustrophobia.

Wait this isn't fair
I have a faulty attorney that doesn't care
while i'm staring at the ceiling
he's fast asleep
have to write to the warden get an early release.
Track Name: Moving Principle
Welcome to some kind of breed, 'does this make you happy?'
they got you working the machines, Mr. Grieves is shadowing
new generations for the hunt
millions of new minds to gut
technicism is scary and the singularity
no more analog for us, 'does this make you happy?'

The moving principle means going forward
without the drag of the modern world.

They had me wired, they had me tapped
I lived on a grid, centered the map
use to live on a salary, fed my guts to the IRS
dropped out for an alter wage, sold my soul to the DEA
started living a private life, away from the magnetic traps
now they have no part of me, i'm just an obsolete thing.

The modern world is surrounding me
The modern world is slowly burning.
Track Name: The Doldrums (Friendly City)
Can you help me out of phantom bay?
This place is a vacancy stuck in figure 8
'where nothing ever happens'
no one's ever late
Why? Tell me why? The dullness is filling me

I have to get away
get this complacency out of me
I'm my own figurehead in my own state
Why? Tell me why the doldrums are killing me
Hold my breath watch my mind sift away
as useless as a compass in a hedge maze
without a direction
without a base
Why? Tell me why dullness is filling me

Living in the doldrums
walking in the doldrums
floating in the doldrums
wandering the doldrums all day
Track Name: Open Head
I use to know this kid always sitting on the side
nobody spoke with him, they thought him rather odd
he had reptile skin
he lived a weird life
he smoked his cigarettes
he lived on paperbacks

When he was alone
he found things were the same
only happier than
a man of open head

Open my head
Open head
Track Name: Terminal Addiction
Every day i'm suffering from terminal addiction
flood bank memory, turning me away frome me
suck it down and cut it up
Humanness and self-distress

Every day addicted

downward circling, burning at both ends, addicted

Reality is futile, it poisons my existence
pseudo images, policy, management
I need alcohol, cocaine and demerol
caffeine, nicotine, vicodin, heroine addicted
Track Name: Don't Touch Me
Wretched feeling and feeling split
gone into and around the back
I don't have any feelings, only some of servitude
cringing, crying, awake
don't look at me or anything.

Volatile, simple minded, only sinking and deprived.

You know you're a mistake
all of you feeling nothing but to take
breaking fingers, needing splints
all of you, I don't like you, I don't need
don't touch me you're sickening
Track Name: Back in '84
Back in 84' I nearly choked on the u-cord
until my dad came and cut me loose
he said, 'the pain you felt today, it will never go away'
and 'the best way out is always through'.

He said, 'watch out for the world trying to shape you
living here you got to know the truth'
twenty five years later everything is the same
a civilization gone deaf-mute
Track Name: All the Time
Late at night living with myself i'm burning up all the time
around the first of the month I'm breaking down all the time
walking with my eyes to sky i'm outside in all the time
at the end of each day I'm digging dirt all the time

I was going on about town
walked into a puddle and was put out
I don't burn like I did when i was twenty two.
Track Name: The Pathos
What a nightmare leaving home
what a nightmare coming home
pity humans the pathos
pity victims the pathos.

What a horror seeing rows
what a horror knowing their yours
pity mission the pathos
pity living the pathos.

What a notion of disgusting use
people killing each other for no use.
Track Name: Nigh to Life
Nigh to life and a life
nigh to peace and full-peace
never have I eluded the fact
facts are inescapable.

First being war, war is near
first being way, war is hear.

Watch the high bolt take everything.

Turn your head to see
turn your back to follow
what has happened?
War of all against all.
