01. Rusty Cage

You wired me awake
And hit me with a hand of broken nails
You tied my lead and pulled my chain
To watch my blood begin to boil

But I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage
And run

Yeah, I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage
And run

Too cold to start a fire
I'm burning diesel burning dinosaur bones
Yeah, I'll take the river down to still water
And ride a pack of dogs

But I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage
And run

Yeah, I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage
And run

Hits like a Phillips head into my brain
It's gonna be too dark to sleep again
Cutting my teeth on bars and rusty chains
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

When the forest burns along the road
Like God's eyes in my headlights
And when the dogs are looking for their bones
And it's raining ice picks on your steel shore

But I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage
And run

Well, I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage
And run


02. Outshined

I got up feeling so down
I got off being sold out
I've kept the movie rolling
But the story's getting old now

I just looked in the mirror
And things aren't looking so good
I'm looking California
And feeling Minnesota

So now you know
(Who gets mystified)
So now you know
(Who gets mystified)

Show me the power child, I'd like to say
That I'm down on my knees today
It gives me the butterflies, gives me away
'Til I'm up on my feet again
I'm feeling, I'm feeling
Outshined, outshined, outshined, outshined

Someone let the dogs out
They'll show you where the truth is
The grass is always greener
Where the dogs are shedding

I'm feeling that I'm sober
Even though I'm drinking
I can't get any lower
Still I feel I'm sinking

So now you know
(Who gets mystified)
So now you know
(Who gets mystified)

Show me the power child, I'd like to say
That I'm down on my knees today
It gives me the butterflies, gives me away
'Til I'm up on my feet again
I'm feeling, I'm feeling
Outshined, outshined, outshined, outshined

Outshined
So now you know
(Who gets mystified)

Show me the power child, I'd like to say
That I'm down on my knees today
It gives me the butterflies, gives me away
'Til I'm up on my feet again
I'm feeling, I'm feeling

Show me the power child, I'd like to say
That I'm down on my knees today
It gives me the butterflies, gives me away
'Til I'm up on my feet again
I'm feeling, I'm feeling
Outshined, outshined, outshined, outshined


03. Slaves & Bulldozers

Every word I said is what I mean
Every word I said is what I mean
Everything I gave is what I need
Virgin eyes and dirty looks
On what I have and why I took
Counting all the hands I shook

Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking

So bleed your heart out
There's no more rides for free
Bleed your heart out
I said what's in it for me, what's in it for me

Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've shown is what I feel
Buying lies and stealing jokes
And laughing every time I choke
Biding all the time you took

Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken

So bleed your heart out
There's no more rides for free
Bleed your heart out
I said what's in it for me, what's in it for me
What's in it for me, what's in it for me

Every word I said is what I mean
Everything I gave is what I need
Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've shown is what I feel

Virgin eyes and dirty looks
On what I have and why I took
Counting all the hands I shook
Now I know why you've been shaking

Buying lies and stealing jokes
And laughing every time I choke
Biding all the time you took
Now I know why you've been taken

Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been taken

Now, now, now, now


04. Jesus Christ Pose

And you stare at me in your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out like you've been carrying a load
And you swear to me, you don't want to be my slave
But you're staring at me like I, like I need to be saved
Saved, like I need to be saved, saved

In your Jesus Christ pose
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out
In your Jesus Christ pose

Thorns and shroud, like it's the coming of the Lord
And I swear to you, I would never feed you pain
But you're staring at me like I'm, like I'm driving the nails
Nails, like I'm driving the nails, nails, like I'm driving the nails
Nails, nails, like I'm driving the nails, nails

In your Jesus Christ pose
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out
In your Jesus Christ pose

Thorns and shroud, like it's the coming of the Lord
Would it pay you more to walk on water
Than to wear a crown of thorns?

It wouldn't pain me more to bury you rich
Than to bury you poor

In your Jesus Christ pose
(Poor)
In your Jesus Christ pose
(Poor)


05. Face Pollution

An' I can count it on my fingers
I have all my reasons not to feel
I'm numb as rigor mortis
Scared by monkey faces drowned in shark fins

But I don't feel like feeling, I don't feel like feeling
I don't feel like feeling, feeling like you

Now I'm in the mirror, now it's getting clear
I fear that I'm in now, I'm into plastics
Now I've made a mask, it looks like fish heads

But I don't feel like feeling, I don't feel like feeling
I don't feel like feeling, feeling like you

I don't feel like feeling, I don't feel like feeling
I don't feel like feeling, feeling like you

Face pollution, face pollution
Face pollution, face pollution
Face pollution, face pollution
Face pollution, face pollution

Feel
Feel
Feel


06. Somewhere

I wish to wish I dream to dream
I try to try and I live to live
And I die to die and I cry to cry
But I know why

Somewhere in my dreams
Things that should
Still the willow weeps
On roses for the dead
In laughs of love

From the likes of her
To the time of me
Like to moon to earth
Or the sky to sea
Only we're no longer
Allowed to be, to be

Somewhere in the dreams
Of those who should
Live in all the keeps
Echo all the worlds
In laughs of love

For times that pass my life
I'll search for the sky
That she wanders by

Somewhere in the dreams
That the skies hold
Still the willow weeps
On roses for her bed
In laughs of love


07. Searching With My Good Eye Closed

Painted blue across my eyes
And tie the linen on
And I'm on my way, on my way
Looking for the paradigm
So I can pass it off
Is it on my side, on my side

Is it to the sky, is it to the sky
Looking to the sky and down
Searching for a ground
With my good eye closed

If I took you for a ride
Would you take it wrong
Or would you make it right, make it right
Looking for a pedestal
That I can put you on
And be on my way, on my way

Is it to the sky, is it to the sky
Looking to the sky and down
Searching for a ground
With my good eye closed

With my good eye closed
With my good eye closed
With my good eye closed
With my good eye closed
With my good eye closed
With my good eye closed

Stop you're trying to bruise my mind
I can do it on my own
Stop you're trying to kill my time
It's been my death since I was born
I don't remember half the time
If I'm hiding or I'm lost
But I'm on my way, on my way

Is it to the sky, is it to the sky
Is it to the sky, is it to the sky
I'm on my way, on my way
On my way, on my way
I'm on my way, on my way
Is it to the sky, is it to the sky
I'm on my way, on my way
Is it to the sky, is it to the sky


08. Room A Thousand Years Wide

Listen, hear, he is inside
One who lives while others lie
I close my eyes and walk a thousand years
A thousand years that aren't mine

It seems he's near me as I walk
One who loved what love denied
He lives these years that I walk blind
All these years cannot be mine

Tomorrow begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow

A thousand doors a thousand lies
Rooms a thousand years wide
He walks in the cold sun and wind
All these years will not begin

Tomorrow begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow
Begat tomorrow


09. Mind Riot

I was slipping through the cracks of stolen jewel
I was tightrope walking in two ton shoes
And now somebody's talking of third world war
(I've been caught in a mind riot)
And the police said, "This is normal control"
(I've been caught in a mind riot)

Candle's burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot
(Mind riot)

I was crying from my eye, teeth and bleeding from my soul
And I sharpened my wits on a dead man's skull
I built an elevator from his bones
(I've been caught in a mind riot)
And I climb to the top floor to stamp out the coals
(I've been caught in a mind riot)

Candle's burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within

Candle's burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within
I'm luck's last match struck
In the pouring down wind, pouring down wind

Mind riot
Mind riot
Mind riot
Mind riot


10. Drawing Flies

Flies
Flies

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies

Bathed in perspiration drowned my enemies
Used my inspiration for a guillotine
I fire a loaded mental cannon to the page

Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies

I said, "Hey, what you yellin'?
About conditions, permission, mirrored self affliction
Hey, what you yellin'?
About sadist's co-addiction, perfect analogies
Hey, what you yellin'?
About conditions, permission, mirrored self affliction"

Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity

Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies

Flies
Flies
Flies


11. Holy Water

Holy water on the brain and I'm losing sleep
Holy Bible on the night stand next to me
As I'm raped by another monkey circus freak
Trying to take my indigence away from me, from me

Yeah, holy water is rusting me
Yeah, holy water is rusting me, is rusting me
Rusting me

Bloody murder is the best, I've heard her scream
Holy devil in the flesh, some might believe
And they take thine majesty so seriously
'Cause it's the big lies are more likely to be believed

Yeah, holy water is rusting me
Yeah, holy water is rusting me, is rusting me
Rusting me, yeah

Damn the water if it's life, you want to drink
Mind your mother if it makes you feel at ease
As you're raped by another monkey circus freak
'Cause it's the big lies are more likely to be believed

Yeah, holy water is rusting me
Yeah, holy water is rusting me
Yeah, holy water is rusting me, is rusting me
Rusting me

Rusting me
Rusting me, yeah
Rusting me


12. New Damage

A new damage comes
It's a faceless poison
A new world order
It's new damage done

The wreck is going down
Get out before you drown
The wreck is going down
Get out before you drown

Get out, yeah

A new damage comes
It's a new word for plague
A new world order
A new word for hate

The wreck is going down
Get out before you drown
The wreck is going down
Get out before you drown

Get out, yeah, before you drown
Get out, get out, oh yeah

New damage comes
It's a new word for plague
A new world order
A new word for hate

The wreck is going down
Get out before you drown
The wreck is going down
Get out before you drown

Get out, get out, get out
Before you drown, before you drown
Get out, get out, get out, get out
Get out, get out, get out

Before you drown, get out
Get out before you drown
Before you drown
Before, before you drown
