Track Name: My Radio Is Played Out
These cuts are not hits
So get your blades out
This scene is dead
So get your spades out

My nerves are frayed out
My radio is played out
It’s a scam
On my ham
They call these bands?

Indie rock brothers
And transistor sisters
All music lovers
Of unoriginal originals

And shitty covers
Make sure your needles hover
Over this …
None of these cuts are hits
So get your blades out

My radio is played out
Track Name: Riff Itch
Adam Rock is anti-ballad
He says, “No!” to pianos
He’ll drop kick your acoustic

He’s got the riff itch and he flips out like a light switch
He’s a rock tastemaker
Whose tastes aren’t all that eclectic

He just wants his drums to be loud
And his guitars
To be electric

He’s looking for a lick
Of overdrive
Amps buzzing
Like an Africanized megahive
He’s got the riff itch

He just wants his drums to be loud
And his guitars to be electric
So bang your head
Loud and proud
Welcome to the age of riffage
Track Name: Sky Mines
I’m astral projector
He got mettle detector
This warrior wizard
We venerated

He set my course but
Now I’m navigating
Sky mines

I’ve been birthed
Buried and unearthed
Corroded and inclined
Exploded and divined
Track Name: I Definitely Have A Feeling (Of Some Kind)
No doubt about my feeling
It snuck up from nowhere
Taking drugs, leaving numb
You stole it on a dare

Dedications sent to those
Dolts who thought you blind
They were turned to the north
When the barometer climbed

I definitely have a feeling
Track Name: Animiculum
Calcium, potassium
You brought ’em
Feel free to seed ’em

In a world where feels are free
Irrigating roots of tree

Animiculum
A mission for your homunculus
Divvy up the rewards
Repay the saint
Nature’s megaphone is full of paint
Your yard is full of nutrients

Animiculum
Track Name: Your Crowded Gleaming Shelf
Crept into the foyer
To have a gander at
Your crowded gleaming shelf
Full of your novelties
Glass-faceted keepsakes
Gewgaws, gimcracks and tchotchkes

A dried lilac branch in the tall vase
Do these pussy willows seem out of place?
A cut lime rind on the marble bar shelf
Of the old lady’s old-fashioneds we see no trace

Crept into the study
To count the soldiers on
Your crowded gleaming shelf
All vintage volumes
Ironclad brass histories
And ranked they stand with pennants flying
Track Name: Divine Jewel
You are it
You are the shit
Penultimate

Divine jewel
Set upon earth

To bear witness
To dazzle
And distress
Each fleshbound heathen fool

Divine jewel
Track Name: When You Bat Your Lashes There's A Military Junta in My Heart
No one invited you across my border
You had your own marching orders
With just one look
You knew you had me hooked
With a junta in my heart

Just a sideways glance, a little wink
Put me on defense, put me on the brink
You mesmerized me from the start
T’was a junta in my heart

You rule my world like a fascist
’Cause when you bat your lashes
There’s military reaction
Rising hostile faction
There’s a junta in my heart

Guaranteed reaction
Junta in my heart
Track Name: Mr. Detonator (Is Having A Blast)
He’s got a lot of views
And a very short fuse
Now he’s fed up at last
He’s Mr. Detonator
And he’s having a blast

They turned his heart to stone
Left him to die alone
It’s the role he’s been cast
He’s Mr. Detonator

He’s got a lot of trusts
And views of his wants
Bad news
Now he’s dug it up at last

Mr. Detonator is having a blast

He’s having a blast
They turned his heart to stone
It’s the role he’s been cast
Mr. Detonator
Track Name: When The Wizard Came Down From The Mountain
Instrumental
Track Name: Taking Drugs
Street names
It induces stillness
Large girth and calyxes
Green crude

Producers in pursuit
The high they seek
Ecstasy has a history
Extending to 1953

Doves and eggrolls
Gamma, Ohio
Georgia homeboy
Shaken before cooled

It doesn’t come from nature
Ice is the strongest of them all
Known for shiny colas
Working on the brain
Track Name: Mister Sister
There’s a psycho
In this room
With a viper
In its womb
The salacious
Sinister
Incestuous
Inquisitor
The Unwanted
Visitor
Mister Sister
Mister Sister
Hacks through
All my slumber
Gives shape to
All my terror

A life lived in vain
A life lived in error
He leaves me
Like meat to rot
Writhing in the street

This isn’t a capsule
It’s my coziest tomb
Hell off of earth
Awaits me when I land
Up on the moon

For wherever I go
Can’t outpace or outgrow

The salacious
And sinister
Incestuous
Inquisitor
The Unwanted
Visitor
Mister Sister
Mister Sister
Hacks through
All my slumber
Gives shape to
All my terror
The Unwanted
Visitor
Mister Sister

For wherever I go
Can’t outpace or outgrow
Track Name: Revel
The night is a daredevil
Electrical charge in the air
Throwing flowers over your wall

Bright like a prodigy
Don’t cry if you start to stall
I’m a total fucking wreck
If I’m anything at all

Hide me in your arbor
Let me see your harbor

Revel
The night is ours
Track Name: Paranoia Is Real
Paranoia is real
I’m teetering on
The precipice of arrest
Like a funambulist
I’m tottering through
My drug screen test

Like a somnambulist
Eyes through the blinds

For the love of mankind
Either hit this bowl
Or show me the wire
You know that you’re wearing

Paranoia is real
Even though they say
They’re not after you
Illuminati messages
Weishaupt ciphers
Coming in on the wire

Like an ambulance
Eyes through the blinds
Track Name: Tape Hissing Cobra
Acupuncture voodoo
Local news caveman
Tape hissing cobra
Brains in the teeth

Girl scouts skipping school
And this cruel, tender pyre
This hound dog of fire
Howling, burning bright
I’m on fire tonight

Minimum wage warrior—
Don’t go in there!

We’re optimistic for many Elvii
To run up the sequestrians
We’re pessimistic Colonel Tom Parker
Will be open to suggestions

But the stage lights burn hot
On your antiquated obsessions
Track Name: Whalin' Jennings
Don’t call me Ishmael
Or Howard Williams Jr.
I never took my marching orders
From General Lee
I never really liked Boss Hogg

Reading the script
Amazed by his pennings
We’re all quite taken with
Whalin’ Jennings

At the gentlemens’ club
The pen is weightier
Than the harpoon
Winter is much more forgiving than June

I'm talkin Whalin’ Jennings
Poised to
Impale the narwhal
Track Name: Super Soldier of Rock
Cold rock super soldier
Implanted with chips
Electronic wind whips
Through the holes in what’s left of your soul

Cold rock super soldier
Your belief is the core
We’ll all take the tour of rock ballads of yore
We’ll all take the tour

Cold rock super soldier
In the mud of the trench
Now receiving orders
On the walls of your boudoirs
We’ll all take the tour of rock ballad boudoirs
We’ll all take the tour
Track Name: Six Months of Forever
Outside my brain
Maybe in Spain
Where hellions trade
In animosities

Lost my watch
One day it was gone
I did not care
Never would I fear the Reaper

Spent half of one year
Outside the sphere
Of Chronos tirades
And Mnemosyne

Lost my car
One day it was rust
Prayed for its ghost
Never would I drink the spirit

Safe and sound in
Six months of forever
Track Name: Fantasy Sleeper
There’s an accidental rooster
Singing “Steroid to Heaven”
Fantasy sleeper blows his node
In expulsion cavity
We set flame to favorite nugget
We’re blowing out the budget
We’re off to other worlds
Go!

Fantasy sleeper
Plunging past the worlds
Cutting for stone
This could be a spark
I could be your Judas
In expulsion cavity
We set flame to favorite nugget
We’re seeing other worlds

Fantasy sleeper
