Track Name: Subscribe To Me
Endless repetition and reserves of strength
Hammering redundant consequence
Pomp and circumstance over ripe
A special tweet from my PDA tonight
Subscribe, subscribe to me, subscribe for me
Subscribe, subscribe to me, for eternity
In spite of the slaughter and habitual junk
We applauded the style of it's retro funk
Reflected in the current craze
Susceptible like the olden days
Tooting a horn to coax a cobra
Meanderings of a crippled spider
Thumbing it's way through a dead rat's nest
Elegant problems laid to rest
Subscribe, subscribe to me, subscribe for me
Subscribe, subscribe to me, for eternity
To demonstrate my total sincerity
I threaded my way with clarity
Right on schedule my conscience broke
And disappeared in a puff of smoke
Off to hell with flowers and kisses
The souls of martyrs fly though time
Subscribe, subscribe to me, subscribe for me
Subscribe, subscribe to me, for eternity
For eternity
Track Name: I Can't Save This World
I can't save this world from me
All factors collide
Eternal anxiety
There's nowhere to hide
I get sick of it just a little bit
Isolate the apathy
Purge the soul of mankind
Traditions of history
Blind that lead the blind
I can't save this world from me
Eternal anxiety
There's nowhere to hide
I get sick of it just a little bit
Evolution always wins
Gravity drags us down
Please forgive us all our sins
Stand up shout aloud
Track Name: Feel Me
Peel away the layers that form
Upon your soul , break the mould
Seal the deal we started years ago
Won't you won't you please let me down with ease
Feel me , make me cry
Tales of new age frontiers are so bold
Age of stone, age of old
Lament the endless moments fractured souls
Cracks in time, fractured minds
Feel me, make me cry
Delusions of a future in harmony
Explode in a shower of raging gloom
Their anger tempered by the the sight of their bones
Certain spells that conjure demons home
Feel me , make me cry
Eden is the garden that we must go
Hindered by the hollow masters
That we ourselves created we let them flow
Stagnant minds rule mankind
Feel me , make me cry
Track Name: Future Happiness
They're driving us crazy with new diseases
New vaccines and drugs with cancerous ingredients
Attacks our immunity system at war
Codex Alimentarus upon us be warned
With GM crops crap food they infect us
It's all good cos disease is big business
Big pharma big brother they like us to suffer
And we're all too busy fighting each other
To notice it creeping like tides all around us
Digital disinformation will pound us
Until we are trapped in this ludicrous game
Of shallow consumerous untold insurances
Buy now pay later a rotting idea of
Future happiness that never appears
Disinformation will pound us
Daily who the hell can blame us
For this madness we've created
Only we on earth can save us
All that perishes is a symbol
Castles made of sand will tumble
Every great civilization
Ends in total self destruction
Track Name: Just Like Jules Verne
Just like Jules Verne travelling time
Sending ripples through my mind
Brainwaves crashing back to the future
A tsunami of destiny changing cultures
By clipping tiny butterfly wings
Would it really alter the course of things
New string parallel universe expanding
Observable yet never ending
I’m in withe the pharaohs sacreed symbols
Creating new threads, new religions
Orion’s belt around my waist
I put JFK’s brains back in their place
Revolutions now that never started
Became solutions never found
A brave new world awaits the masses
Covered in bruises a distant sound
Efficiently plunged into oblivion
The hollow masters which we serve
Nodding man perchance a gideon
Leaking Zen through optic nerves
Every beginning a continuation
And the book of fate is always open
Down the rabbit hole I must go searching
For perfection, fortune’s gold
Just like Jules Verne travelling time
Sending ripples through my mind
Brainwaves crashing back to the future
A tsunami of destiny changing cultures
Track Name: From The Inside
Please direct your attention to the teeth I lost
Was it the strontium 90 milkshake or the way I flossed ?
It's sad , it's bad, it's oh so sad
Was it the poison Chanel No.5 behind my ears ?
Or was it just a little splash of Daichi tears ?
It's sad , it's bad, it's oh so sad
Absurd cocktail party politeness
Mixed in with fluorescent strip whiteness
The occult symbolism and nautical signs
Gnawing away my veins from the inside
From the inside
Was it the cell phone tower relays emitting bad vibes ?
Was it the fracking foreplay shower of pesticides
It's sad , it's bad, it's oh so sad
Was it genetically modified beans on toast ?
Or fluoridated water and diet coke
It's sad , it's bad, it's oh so sad
Factory farms and oily scourge
Mixed in with toxic fumes at birth
The occult symbolism and nautical signs
Gnawing away my veins from the inside
From the inside
Was it vaccinations laced with formaldehyde ?
Or chromosomal implants spliced with mutant flies
Was it the microwave dinners and plastic boobs ?
Or sucking blue smarties through neon tubes
It's sad , it's bad, it's oh so sad
Caught in the mire eternal spillage
A nuclear fallout after image
The occult symbolism and nautical signs
Gnawing away my veins from the inside
From the inside
Track Name: All The Heroes
What is it ? What is it ?
What is it that true heroes really want ?
Existence persistence perpective infection
Sleek and extravagant in every direction
What is it ? What is it ?
What is it that true heroes really want ?
Instant relief from an inbred belief
And that's no way to keep the worms at bay
All the heroes
All the heroes and magical dropouts
Hypnotic eyes and monochrome readouts
Highly skilled gawpers and casual perusals
Deep frozen rictus outlandish syllables
Backsliders foreign affairs
High above the albatross soared
Suppressing a burp avoid cautious glances
You don't wanna fuck with a hero
What is it that true heroes really want?
To see themselves at the height of triumph
What is it that true heroes really love ?
You don't wanna fuck with a hero
No you don't wanna fuck with a hero
Wa wanna fuck with
No you don't wanna fuck with a hero
Escape obligations with broken drums
Lost in the privacy of my own skull
I beg your pardon , a solemn endeavor
Kiss your kidneys goodbye it's now or never
A tough ride juggling snowballs in hell
Quicksilver fumes and hazy spells
What is it that true heroes really want?
To see themselves at the height of triumph
What is it that true heroes really love ?
You don't wanna fuck with a hero
Track Name: Live Until I Die
Chillin' with the moon I close my eyelids
My mind carving stones with the ancient pyramids
Ploughing cerebral landscapes with alien tractors
Always one step ahead never moving backwards
Conflicting contradictions my stories of fiction
My collage of thoughts tight taught and addictive
Glowing like a firefly , intuitive with my third eye
Posing for cameras while flushing out enemas
I ain't no vandal causing no scandal
To open my door just turn the handle
So many mice creaming for the cheese
With nothing I find myself I'm pleased
I'm as sane as a fruitcake in a loony bin
My pockets bare yet riches within this skin
In which I live is all I give to be a king
I bring no drama, only good karma
A sprinkle of pixie dust and little charmer
And if I die later or sooner
Eating radioactive tuna
I'm the man in the moon, the ray of the sun
It's much too late my story's begun
My boat's set sail the anchor break
I'm gonna live until I die
Dream until I wake
I'm gonna live until I die
Dream until I wake
Track Name: Love Hotel
What's your fantasy tonight ?
On a train, in the office, or motorbike ?
On a beach, a plane or hospital bed ?
So many flavors, some bondage instead ?
Let's go down at the love hotel
Satisfy our needs let's raise some hell
A crazy lust, a driving passion
A no holds barred steamy dumpling session
Serve up your sashimi c'mon and bring it near me
Oooh you got me frisky feely
Sticky squashed like Onigiri
Vapourizin' kush trippin' on your tush
Spaced out on your planet bushy
Wrap me up slice me like sushi (cutie)
Be my hot wasabi baby dumplings of desire
Get down at the love hotel
C'mon and light my fire now baby
Spicy cyber girl now baby
Let's get to it down at the love hotel
Serve up your sashimi
C'mon and bring it near me
You got my plums so ripe so squashy
Gently squeeze like ume boshi
Tantalizin' rush trippin' on your tush
Sipping on your hot sweet sake
Dip me, roll me, lick me, slap me
Hot wasabi baby spicy cyber girl
Get down at the love hotel
Get to show me your world
Be my hot wasabi baby spicy cyber girl
Let's get to it down at the love hotel
Swipe that card, step on in
Welcome to a world of sin
Let lose your animal desire
Work up that hunger a sweet perspire
Streets of neon and plastic food
Pachinko slots and denki grooves
Lost in the city of a million souls
