Track Name: Precurse 2 Thee Age Ov Natron
light up the stage while i run the ten key keypad
trick hoes on the floor know i bad

how can it be? yesterday i was a kid
but then i look at my future and get energetic

i cant wait to make money, stay loyal to my wife

i dont want to get into any baby momma drama
only positivity shall reflect my persona

creative at all times twoism the world is mine
as long as i talk to jesus ill be doin just fine
my dreams are so real if i can see it i can feel
i got the appeal to close any financial deal
Track Name: Vertebral Column
ATLAS
unit... square with... all vertices at integer
points in cartesian plane is called cell
AXIS

on the other hand consists... of a longer body
CENTRUM OF THORACIC VERTEBRA
a disk of spongy bone, a disk of spongy bone
SPINUOUS PROCESS

relatively large neural passageways
less incidence of nerve compression

COCCYX
SACRUM

making the lumbar level a good one for spinal tap

the spine is a plate for the human fate
you can bend it you can stretch it you can follow it home
with a hand full of dice you've got what it takes
and for all the effort we'll call it a day

well the whole damn thing is in the works
but we're through with most of the dirty work
so let's rip out our spines and
trample em night and day til the cows come home

til the cows come home

well most of you people would call me a weirdo
but all the other weirdos i know don't play guitar
they stab others in the vertebral column with knives

well the whole damn thing is in the works
but we're through with most of the dirty work
so let's rip out our spines and
trample em night and day til the cows come home
Track Name: Independent Rock Music
indie rock indie rock she's so indie rock
indie rock indie rock he's so indie rock

yeah yeah yeah laa daa dee
comin together to avoid the mainstream
indie rock sweaters and indie rock hair
when you walk together you're an indie rock pair

indie rock indie rock she's so indie rock
indie rock indie rock he's so indie rock

indie rock glasses indie rock shoes
indie rock masses drinking indie rock booze

indie rock indie rock she's so indie rock
indie rock indie rock he's so indie rock

one day i went and bought some gaudy outfits
so the cool kids at my college could be my friends
like a gutter punk dressed for a formal event
i'm such a hipster living on the fringe

ma-ma-ma-mainstream rock
is it a good thing? ya
to drift away with the flock
ma-ma-ma-mainstream rock

DIY! DIY! DIY! DIY!

i'll cry myself to sleep each night because i have no money
i spent it all on coke, shows, and radio imports
i'm learning to play music on a moog synthesizer
i really suck so i'll start an indie label for myself

ma-ma-ma-mainstream rock
is it a good thing? ya
to drift away with the flock
ma-ma-ma-mainstream rock

indie rock indie rock she's so indie rock
independent rock music he's so independent
independent rock music she's so indie
independent rock music he's so indie
Track Name: Penis
i got a beef with every one of you guys
and i know the same from yall to me
treachery deception and flat out lies
in order to use the genesis of our progeny

its the human pride, the human soul
its every man's guide, its every woman's goal
you can suck it, you can fuck it, you can put it in a hole
it never obeys, its in control

woke up. got out of bed. got ripped off. wished i was dead
i've spent all this time with a cheating soul. my genitalia has shown me my role

a man with no conscience, with a drive instead
let the hedonist calculus rule my bed
and let the pregnant betrayors cast spells on my wang
it'll spit em back out cause it aint ashamed

it's a miracle mold

its a million a year for the fight of your life
as the paint on these walls could tell you
it wont talk but you know i will about
primitive wisdom confusion and strife

now take a good band and pay them twice
to make an epic album thats twice as nice
and to quell the enlightenment of the masses
do everything you can to numb them with asses

and asinine knowledge using our media
and make them think college is a haven for freedom
and figure out really what makes them tick
and earth will spin out of control from your riches

now i have not known anyone as impartial as the one i know
for he will repair me and she will declare me
but the truth is that he is the one that i know
Track Name: Aghori Love Chant
she is the alpha female and its no surprise
her looks blow away all the others in my eyes
she is more effective than a pill of cyanide
if the devil was her ally its certain god would die

i'm a shameless junkie and its no surprise
the square root of existence is a negative prime
the builders of this paradigm have no morality
it is only human to pull the plug and make some tea
Track Name: Thief
it's the age of deceit as i choose a seat
in the fully interactive society
it seems that i know more about famine and war
than the polka dotted lovers at my core

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
and it's looking like i have a little more space to fill... yeah

i'm a thief i'm a little weak when it comes to things
snatch some spice or a little oil but i'm not from the east
a klepto whore go to a store leave feeling like a rich man
grease my beard with stolen beer twenty rings on one... hand

i cloak myself in black as i go through stacks
of perversive and precarious papers
a feeling deep inside causes my to sigh
how hairy they look as we get straighter

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
and it's looking like i have a little more space to fill... yeah

yeah

washing off a gold chain as blood goes down the drain
in a public bathroom as i reconnect my brain
a feeling deep inside causes me to sigh
it once belonged to a girl named beau

there's a need that drills me down
to a vault hidden in the ground
with the eyes of a wolf its a space that's never full... yeah

i'm a thief i'm a little weak when it comes to things
snatch some spice or a little oil but i'm not from the east
a klepto whore go to a store leave feeling like a rich man
grease my beard with stolen beer twenty rings on one... hand
