Track Name: Eternal Return
Time has ended.
All your life to this.
Gone is measure.
All your life for this,
All your life.

Resurrection,
A phoenix reborn.
Purple fire,
A phoenix reborn.

Deep within your chest,
Within the warm darkness,
Has begun a great metamorphosis.
And soon you will break through your cocoon
And begin anew.

Arise, arise, arise, arise!
Track Name: Shapeshifter
Shape shifting
Well, I'm trying it out.
I wanna see what those beautiful people are all about.
I'm gonna see if they taste just as good as they look,
And write all my lurid escapades in a thousand page book.

I've got a doppelgänger
I've gone and split me in half.
I'm licking bone china and I'm digging through the trash.
I'm gonna mine the high society, drink their blood from my glass.
I feel so fine, I feel revitalized.
I'm like a new man.

I feel like a new man!

I'm gonna find a hip kitten I can sink my teeth in.
Her beauty and my passion make a pretty good team.
She likes the darkness in me and I just soak up her light.
She's got some darkness of her own that only comes out at night.

Well I'm a skin-walker and I'm stretching my legs.
I'm gonna eat up these books and put new words in my head.
I'm gonna take off my fur and put some scales on instead.
I feel so young. I feel so dangerous.
I'm like a new man.

I feel like a new man!

I feel so good, I feel so good, and I just can't help myself!
I feel so good, I feel so good, and I just can't help myself!
I feel so good, I feel so good, and I just can't help myself!
I feel so good, I feel so good, and I just can't help myself!

I feel like a new man!
Track Name: Do You Remember?
Do you remember last night at all?
Do you remember?
Do you remember?

You were like an animal.
You were like an animal.
You were like, you were like an animal,
Another creature

I think you killed a man.
I think, I think you killed a man.
I think, I think, I think you killed a man.
I think you...

Don't you remember?
Don't you remember?

Oh Christ, you killed a man!
I think, I think you killed a man.
Don't you remember?
Don't you remember?

Don't you remember?
Track Name: Word to the Unwise
Progress is messy
But success is sexy
Progress is necessary
And excess is customary
Keep that in mind.
Keep that in mind, youngblood.

Your thoughts are cautious
You balk at the prospect
But your talk won't stop it
Can't stop the cogs of progress
Keep that in mind,
Keep that in mind, old one.

Satisfaction soon passes
"Action!", say the masses
Clashes and backlashes
But you can't retract it
Keep that in mind.
Keep that in mind, young blood.

Degeneracy you foresee
As morality recedes
You deem everything obscene
But you're not needed to proceed
Keep that in mind.
Keep that in mind, old one.
Track Name: Caesar!
Caesar!
Caesar!
Wherefore weeps thou Caesar,
So lowly at the foot of Alexander?

Weeps thou for the hours, marching?
March, march, march, march, march, march, march, march!

Wherefore?
Wherefore?

Caesar!
The world's your oyster, Caesar!
You're not allergic to shellfish are you?
Ahahahahahahahaha!

Weeps thou for the hours, marching?
March, march, march, march, march, march, march, march!

Wherefore? Wherefore weeps though? Wherefore?

Caesar!
Caesar!
A natural born leader is Caesar.
Caesar, where will you lead us?

Obstacles in the way,
The Rubicon, the Rubicon, the Rubicon, the Rubicon.

Will you cross?
Caesar, will you cross?

'Til all the world is Rome.
Track Name: Two Sirens
There are two sirens in my mind.
There are two sirens in my mind.
And they sing, but they can't get to me.

There are two sirens in my mind.
There are two sirens in my mind.
And they sing, oh they sing so pretty.

There are two wrens in my bed.
There are two wrens in my bed.
And they cry, and it haunts me.
And they cry, they cry so pretty.

There are two.
There are two.
There are two.
Track Name: Be Like the Dove
Sucking on poison, you want to see visions.
Devouring books, you're gonna find some religion.
Eye like an eagle, the eye of a judge.
When instead you want to be like the dove.

You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
You want to be like the dove.
You're just so full of love.

Look at your hands and you see power.
Look at your hands, you know you could kill.
Look all around you and you feel anger.
Look at your hands, you know you could kill.

But you want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
You want to be like the dove.
You're just so full of love.

Peace is kind and she wraps her loving arms around you.
But you shrug them off with so many things that you say and do.
And you return with nothing, dragging your feet with your head hung low
'Cause you know, you still have a ways to go.

Bury the hatchet, bury the past.
But we know you won't forget that fast.
Hang like a vulture when you smell blood.
Yet you say you want to be like the dove.

You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
Be like the dove,
You want to be like the dove.
You want to be like the dove.
You're just so full of love.
Track Name: War With Yourself
Are you at war with yourself?
Are you at war with yourself?
Keeping the food from your mouth.

Poison.
Poison.
Poison in your mind.

Are you at war with yourself?
Are you at war with yourself?
No victory can there be, only defeat.

Are you at war with yourself?
Are you at war with yourself?
Putting the flame to your house.

Poison.
Poison.
Poison in your mind.
Track Name: All of These People
All of these people, all of these people, who's gonna feed all of these people?

Whole lotta people swept beneath the rug.
Now they're climbing up the walls!
Now they're hanging from the lights!

Whole lotta people shut behind the door.
See a whole lotta people.
You're gonna see a whole lot more!

All of these people, all of these people, who's gonna feed all of these people?

All of these people want to sleep in your bed.
All of these people are gonna get inside your head!

Now they're drinking from the well!
Now they're breathing all the air!
There ain't enough room for all these people everywhere.

Get behind me, get behind me Machiavelli!
I'm trying to do what Jesus told me.

Get behind me, get behind me Machiavelli!
I'm trying to be like Jesus showed me.

Get behind me!
Track Name: The Ol' Testament
You, who so many seeds did waste,
Why do you deserve to procreate?

Why, you look surprised!
Why is there surprise in your eyes?
See no fault, know not the cause?
Have you no fear of God and his laws?

Will you marry the Great Whore?
Sooner marry off the Great Whore?
Live and die by the sword,
Such a strange sword.

So, or not so?
Always reap what you sow?
Only reap what you sow?
So, or not so?

Words and deeds
Are they not dwarfed by infinity?
No randomness, it does not exist.
It is all actions and consequence.

Will you look into the Great Eye?
Rather look away from the Great Eye?
Afraid of fate and obsessed with time
And the ages.

You shouldn't've eaten that fruit.
Strange fruit, indeed.
Did you swallow or did you spit out the seeds?
'Tis a strange food you've given me.

A strange food, a strange food, and yet I thank you.
Track Name: Information Industry
People want things they can hold, explain the visionless.
But you can sell anything, your options are limitless
Even reality can be a commodity.

The foolish will say you can’t sell the intangible.
Reach into the ether and make it profitable,
Cast your net into the sky

Technology gives you an empowering sensation
But your every move is a calculation
This is the Age of Information.

Ethereal pioneers are making up rules that you'll soon follow.
And all the ethics will follow behind.

Control the medium, control the message
Control the message, you can control the mind.
One word at a time.

Chips in your forehead, cables in your spine.
Never have to ask anyone for the time.
You won’t have to ask for anything at all.

The message is not open for interpretation.
Progress is merely a simplification.
This is the Age of Information.

We don't want your money, we just want your information.
We don't want your body, we just want your information.
We don't want your conversation, we just want your information.

(Go get Grandpa down at the Nostalgia Chamber.
And find your sister, she shut off her positioning system.
Tell your father to get off the robot whore,
and plug yourself in for dinner.)
Track Name: In Defense of Man or The Destroyer Returns
I've seen a lot in two hundred thousand years.
I can't say it's all been educational.
I must admit that I'm a bit ashamed for my conduct.
You get to feel a little like an animal.

But it's so easy,
Reach out and seize it.
Pick it up; eat it.
Even if you don't need it,
It's there for you.

Why should I apologize for my design?

And the destroyer will return, as the world darkens.
South will become north as the destroyer comes forth.
Wreaking havoc as it nears, ripping apart the atmosphere.
Fear, is a powerful emotion.
It does wonders to a man's otherwise reasonable notions
of plausibility.
And as for me, I do, I feel a certain responsibility for the work my hands have done.

I heard the birds,
Singing underneath a clear blue sky.
They spoke to me and I realized the error of my ways.

But old habits die hard.
And I'm not the type to compromise.
Why sacrifice your way of life?
I ask, why sacrifice for theory?

For is not comfort the goal of every living thing?
For all the fishes in the sea and those singing birds up in those trees.
And yet as sorry as I may feel about all these changes that I see,
Who am I to say what's unnatural?

The birds said, "Listen", and so I did.
The birds said, "Listen", and so I did.
The birds said, "Listen", and so I did.
The birds said, "Listen".
I did.

Listen!
Track Name: The Gospel of Ra
Oh, there's a star in the sky.
(Great big star!)
Yes, there's a star in the sky.
(Great big star!)
Bigger than the oceans.
(Great big star!)
Well, no matter where you are, there's a star in the sky.

Oh, there's a star in the sky.
(Shinin' on, shinin' on everything)
There's a star in the sky.
(Shinin' on, shinin' on everything)
There's a star in the sky.
(Shinin' on, shinin' on everything)

Well, shines so bright with all it's might.
No, never gonna ever gonna lose it's light.
Well at least not in our short lifetimes, right?
Said, everybody got a star in sight.

Oh, there's a hole in the sky.
(Great big hole!)
Yes, there's a hole in the sky.
(Great big hole!)
There's a hole in the sky.
(Great big hole!)
Well don't everybody know
There's a hole in the sky?

Oh, there's a hole in the sky.
(Tuggin' on, tuggin' on everything)
Yeah, there's a hole in the sky.
(Tuggin' on, tuggin' on everything)
There's a hole in the sky.
Oh, there's a hole in the sky.
(Tuggin' on, tuggin' on everything)

Well, big black hole's do us in,
Gonna pull, gonna pull, gonna pull us in.
It don't matter if you're good or if you sin.
Said, big fat Earth’s gonna get real thin.
Time's gonna end, light's gonna bend,
Black hole's gonna rechart the skies again.
Quantum physics, mysteries,
Said, it's the end of history!
Wooo!

Oh there's a ship in the sky.
There's a ship in the sky.
Bigger than a mountain.
Well look way up on high, there's a ship in the sky.
