Supersonic
Supersonic

Well, I am not making haste or could it be haste is making me
What's time but a thing to kill or keep or buy or lose or live in
I gotta go faster
Keep up the pace
Just to stay in the human race
I could go supersonic, the problem's chronic
Tell me does life exist beyond it?
When I need to sate, I just accelerate
Into oblivion
Into oblivion yah yah yah yah yah ya-ahn
Well here I go again, everything is alien
How does it feel to be outstripped by the pace of cultural change?
My deeds are senseless and rendered meaningless
When measured in that vein
I could go supersonic, the problem's chronic
Tell me does life exist beyond it?
When I need to sate, I just accelerate into oblivion
I won't lie, it's exciting
When I try to decide things
I just want to live decently, meaningfully
I'm in misery
(pace setters, go getters)
(rat racers, forget hers)
(researchers, berserkers)
(strategies to help the workers)
(new time saving devices)
(quick vices, short splices)
(brevity, dependency)
(digital efficiency)
I could go supersonic, the problem's chronic
Tell me, does life exist beyond it?
When I need to sate, I just accelerate into oblivion
Into oblivion yah yah yah yah yah ya-ahnback to top
Prove It
Hit the road in wander mode, inquire along the way
Savoir faire in full despair while living day-to-day
My heart is not a cold cauldron of proof
I don't ever need to prove myself to you
Looking back I'm off the tracks more times than I recognize
Mistakes are another opportunity to refine
My heart is not a cold cauldron of proof
I don't ever need to prove myself to you
There's no such thing as hell
But you can make it if you try
There might come a day
When emotion can be quantified
But as of now there's no proof necessary
No proof necessary
No proof necessary
There's no proof necessary
It's only in your mind (mind, mind, your mind)back to top
Can't Stop It
I'm incurable but durable it's easy to see
Lack of restraint is a complaint of those around me
I know that others postpone
Gratification well I lack that affectation

Let's get it right
There's no end in sight
And i
Can't stop
Can't stop
Can't stop it
Can't stop
Can't stop
Can't stop shocking but I just can't stop it
That's right

Uncontrollable
I'm inconsolable
My pleasure center is the shelter for a reptile
I hate when I gotta tolerate
Frustration see I lack the motivation

Let's set this straight
I never wait
And i
Can't stop
Can't stop
Can't stop it
Can't stop
Can't stop
Can't stop shocking but I just can't stop it
That's rightback to top
Broken
She said
Thanks but I'm broken
I guess
You must have misspoken
What a laugh
I've never been chosen by anyone

She was barely a teen
Hanging out in between
Just a part of the scene
With mercurial smile
And incurable style
She was only a dream
How's that
He didn't know a thing about
Making love to the kind of girl you read about

He said
I'm bound to be broken
My daddy bet
That I'd amount to nothing
He won't let anybody show him anything

He was a troubled child
Had been down for a while
Always kept to himself
No she couldn't defend
He only wanted a friend
Now he's made something else
It's so sad no one saw it coming
The paper said that he hit the ground running

Oh yeah
I know I'm not broken
A little cracked
But still I'm not broken
I wanna laugh but I think that I'm choking on reality

When the
World is turning for you
Don't turn on me
Who are you here to repair
Well I don't know what you mean
You could never resist
Glorifying despair
Well now it's coming to you and I don't really care

Well I'm not
The kind to insist
You couldn't have missed
We must co exist
So please listen to me
There is no such thing as human debris

Oh yeah
I know I'm not broken
A little cracked
But dad I'm not so nothing
I wanna laugh
I'm not joking

I'm unbroken
Oh yeah I said I'm unbroken
I said I'm unbroken
A little cracked it's just a token
I'm really not broken
What a guess I'm unbrokenback to top
Destined for Nothing
Who do you believe can put some meaning in your life
Meaning in your life
Meaning in your life
Who do you conceive to provide you guidance and light
Guidance and light
Guidance and light
Are they waiting for you in the by and by
Do you even have to try

Headed for eternity and destined for nothing
The future isn't difficult to see
It's easy to confuse grand design with life's repercussions
Lament not your vanquished fantasy
It's only destiny

Why do you consent to live in ignorance and fear
Ignorance and fear
Ignorance and fear
Ancient people succumbed to it can it happen here
Can it happen here
Can it happen here
Does it make you suffer cuz you have to die
Is it best to live a lie

Headed for eternity and destined for nothing
The future isn't difficult to see
It's easy to confuse grand design with life's repercussions
Lament not your vanquished fantasy
It's only destiny

Why can't you see
There ain't no destiny
For you and me
There ain't no destiny
Why can't you see
There ain't no destiny
For you and me
There ain't no destiny

Headed for eternity and destined for nothing
The future isn't difficult to see
It's easy to confuse grand design with life's repercussions
Lament not your vanquished fantasy
It's only destinyback to top
Materialist
You're obsesssed and distressed
Cause you can't make any sense of the ludicrous nonsense
And incipient senescence
That will deem your common sense useless
This ain't no recess!

I want to believe in you, but my plan keeps falling through
I knoe I have to face the harshnes, grin and bear the truth
And I have to walk this mile in my own shoes
(and I'm no fool!)

[chorus]
I'm materialist
A full-blown realist
(physical theorist)
And I guess I'm full of doubt
So I'm prone to hear you out and refuse
I'm materialist
There ain't no fear in this
It's for all to see, so don't talk of hidden mysteries with me...

Mind over matter, it really don't matter
If the street's idle chatter turns your heart strings to tatters
Flatter hopes don't flatter and soul batter won't congeal to mend
A life that is shattered into shards
Was it in the cards?

The process of belief is an elixir when you're weak
I must confess, at times I indulge it on the sneak
But generally my outlook's not so bleak
(and I'm not meek!)

[chorus]
I'm materialist
A full-blown realist
(physical theorist)
And I guess I'm full of doubt,
But I'll gladly have it out with you
I'm materialist
I ain't no deist
It's there for all to see, so don't of hidden mysteries with me

Like rome under nero, our future's one big zero
Recycling the past to meet the immediate needs
And through it all we ramble forth with perservere and climb
Our mountains of regret to sow our seeds

I'm materialist
I'm materiliast
I'm materialist
I'm materialist (hold)back to top
Kyoto Now!
Kyoto now!

It's a matter of prescience -no, not the science fiction kind
It's all about ignorance, and greed, and miracles for the blind
The media parading, disjointed politics
Founded on petrochemical plunder, and we're it's hostages
If you stand to reason you're in the game
The rules might be elusive but our pieces are the same
And you know if one goes down we all go down as well
The balance is precarious as anyone can tell
This world's going to hell
Don't allow this mythologic hopeful monster to exact it's price
Kyoto now!
We can't do nothing and think someone else will make it right
You might not think it matters now but what if you are wrong
You might not think there's any wisdom in a fucked up punk rock song
But the way it is cannot persist for long
A brutal sun is rising on our sick horizon
It's in the way we live our lives
Exactly like the double edge of a cold familiar knife
And supremacy weighs heavy on the day
It's never really what you own but what you threw away
And how much did you pay?
Don't allow this mythologic hopeful monster to exact it's price
Kyoto now!
We can't do nothing and think someone else will make it right
In your dreams you saw a steady state a bounty for eternity
Silent screams
But now the wisdom that sustains us is in full retreat
Watch out!
Don't allow this mythologic hopeful monster isn't worth the risk
Kyoto now!
We can't have vision for the future if it can't be fixed
Alien
We need a fresh and new religion to run our lives
Hand in hand
The arid torpor of inaction will be our demise
Oh, kyoto now!back to top
Sorrow
Father, can you hear me?
How have I let you down?
I curse the day that I was born,
And all the sorrow in the world...

Let me take you to the herding ground,
Where all good men are trampled down,
Just to settle a bet that could not be won,
Between a prideful father and his son.

Well you guard me now for I can't see,
A reason for this suffering and this long misery.
What if every living soul could be upright and strong?
Well, then I do imagine there will be
Sorrow.
Yeah there will be
Sorrow .
And there will be
Sorrow, no more.

When all soldiers lay their weapons down,
Or when all kings and all queens relinquish their crown,
Or when the only true messiah rescues us from ourselves...
It's easy to imagine there will be
Sorrow.
Yeah there will be
Sorrow .
And there will be
Sorrow, no more.

There will be
Sorrow.
Yeah there will be
Sorrow .
And there will be
Sorrow, no more.back to top
Epiphany
A new age of reason
Brain treason to trick the mind
What good is searching
If nothing's there to find
We arrive at this place
Of no return my brothers
Only to discover that our minds have led us away
So far from the painful truth
Of who we are

What's right is wrong
What's come has gone
What's clear and pure is not so sure
It came to me
All promises become a lie
All that's benign corrupts in time
The fallacy
Of epiphany

Come forth bear witness
See the profit from your loss
Beg for forgiveness
Only after you tally the cost
We arrive at this place
Of no return my sisters
Only to discover that our values ran us aground
On the shoal in the sea of what
We could be

What's right is wrong
What's come has gone
What's clear and pure is not so sure
It came to me
All promises become a lie
All that's benign corrupts in time
The fallacy
Of epiphany

If it's real for me do I have to prove it to you
Why do revelations fade to cold blue untruths
It's oh so relative
Subservient in total to one's perspective

What's right is wrong
What's come has gone
What's clear and pure is not so sure
It came to me
All promises become a lie
All that's benign corrupts in time
The fallacy
Of epiphanyback to top
Evangeline
She came from heaven well there's no point belaboring that
I've seen some trouble and I must admit that I'm in demand
I confront rejection with magnetic good intentions yet
Hey jack get back in fact don't do that
I act sharp
But feel uncertain
Cuz next time
It could be curtains

Evangeline
Conspirator so fine
Lend me your faith cuz mine is broken
Compared to mine
What is your crime evangeline

Now just to be certain let's be sure to set the record straight
I could use an angel but I don't intend to split up the take
Never go for treason but I got reasons that don't warrant debate
My acts intact and in fact you're not all that
You act sure
But you're uncertain
Cuz next time
It could be curtains

Evangeline
Conspirator so fine
Lend me your faith cuz mine is broken
Compared to mine
What is your crime evangeline

Well there's no use turning back
No use turning back
It's already much too late
When the house is burning

Evangeline
Conspirator so fine
Lend me your faith cuz mine is broken
Compared to mine
What is your crime evangelineback to top
The Defense
Nothing comes easier than madness in the world today
Mass paranoia is a mode not a melody
Yeah I'd like to watch all thousand cable channels but there's nothing on
And my high speed connection's monitored daily by the pentagon
These things are seldom what they seem
I'm not inclined to enjoy my dreams
Won't go away

No peace and no friends
We trace the mortal edge with no defense
To state the obvious
This world is perilous for us
No sense and no guide
Ain't it beautiful to be alive yeah right
I won't resign before the struggle ends
So I'll construct this sound defense

We are the prey and culture is the predator
I'm running out of time where conditions are positionnal
Shadows of a doubt cast reluctance and depravity
There's got to be a way to overcome this grim reality
Is there an option left for me
I'm not immune to despondency
There's no way

No peace and no friends
We trace the mortal edge with no defense
To state the obvious
This world is perilous for us
No sense and no guide
Ain't it beautiful to be alive yeah right
I won't resign before the struggle ends
So I'll construct this sound defense

There's a signpost on the corner
And it keeps everybody safe
We were all made in the shade
And your mother's in the kitchen
Where she's patching all the cracks in the wall
We never had to care in the world

Too much to sacrifice
It's hard to recognize
Just a compromise of purely deadly alibies
It's combinational
The pressure so intense
So I'll construct this sound defense

Nothing's plainer than the madness in the world today
I must conceal myself and steal myself and break away
I seek initiatives in matters that are black and white
So I'll construct this sound defenseback to top
The Lie
How do you know what you can be
If you can't see where you are going
What breaks the silence misery
Can make you see where you belong
It's a dangerous stage but the show must go on

Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Would you betray your soul
Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Don't let your weakness show
You just might be the last to know

Freedom is such a loaded word
So full of hurt and such a plomb
Loneliness saunters in it's breeze
Like a disease it drags along
The time of your life can't be had for a song

Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Would you betray your soul
Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Don't let your weakness show
You just might be the last to know

Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Would you betray your soul
Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Don't let your weakness show
Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Only the meek follow
Why do you lie
Why do you lie
Trample the fear below
You just might be the last to knowback to top
You Don't Belong
Hey you
Is there something worth aspiring to
And can it be found in a record store
Well it's not there anymore
Just think of all the things we did
We were different
Just like all the other kids

Missy was a teen blue video star
Tom took his life in his mother's car
Milo went to college but you knew about that
Rodney played our record
Gg started riots
Laurie was always quiet
She was battling depression

Hey you
Is there something worth belonging to
And can I pick it up for a song
Or a diploma or a worthy cause
Well let me tell you that there's nothing wrong
It's just that ones like us will never belong

Jack wore a skirt but he knew how to scrap
Billy went to county on a class one possession
Wendy went to school while her daddy shot smack
Eugene kept a list
Mugger was security
Mary she kept her purity
We were all in it together

Yellowed postcards on the wall
Serve to cover up a blankness after all
So I will carry them along
Like a song when I'm gone yeah

Hey you
Is there something worth belonging to
You know we've been here all along
Like a confederacy of the wrong
And I confess it could be prejudice
But to you I dedicate this song
Yeah to youback to top
Bored and Extremely Dangerous
With nothing better to do
No one to come home to
I woefully conclude
To take it out on you
I'm bored to the extreme
This world of foolish dreams
Disillusion
I am not who I seem to be
Yeah sure I might do harm
And bear my right to arm
Retribution
If only someone would listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me

A room an empty shelf
A book on mental health
I look for inner wealth
A punish in myself
I'm bored to the extreme
This world of foolish dreams
Disillusion
I am not who I seem to be
Yeah sure I might do harm
And bare my right to arm
Retribution
If only someone would listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to meback to top
