Tracklist & Lyrics

Meet the good man’s bitter soul
An acid genius rides a giant foal
Elephant horse with stag-like head
One-horn goat with gold mustache

Pick a million wives
Plant a million bombs
Ejaculate your lightening cries
Another beast is born

With raised black trunk and colored tongue
God waits down here with spiral horns
Mothers kept on spider webs
One-hour sleep on Christian beds

Pick a million wives
Plant a million bombs
Ejaculate your lightening cries
Another beast is born

Let your hunger sway your reason
Get your knees down on the floor
Let your fire cloud your vision
Find the muse among the whores

Rambling on pins and needles
Across all nine circles of hell
Lying when the sun is silent
Soaking on a river of molten gold

Slap your wonders outside the circles
Seat down hazy stripped from pride
Take a soul baptized in fire
Raise the lamb that was born to die

How long has it been since you talked to yourself? So you won’t have to listen?
How many times have you stayed right where you are to breathe the inertia in its full abundance? Is apathy at your door now?
Is tedium part of your decoration? Is boredom framed backwards?
Hidden in the smile of all your dead heroes? Is your life already written?
Hanging on full shelves preserved inside special editions?
Are we doomed to walk in circles? Are we doomed to applaud in sequence?
Are we doomed to lose our senses? Or, are we just doomed to choose silence?

Take a look inside my brain
Dull thoughts written on still frames
Black spaces break my bones
Flash them back, one by one

I got lost in a shooting script
My voice silently encrypted
My youth is turning so retro
Inside your space my voice won’t echo

I’m the broken mirror sight
I’m the silent ghost of doom
I exist in black and white
I’m in that picture with you

Flash back into another sense of time
Memories… too much grain
Come back so vintage
I feel dead again and again

I’m lost in your odd scene
So lost, underneath my skin
Synchronize the infinite flipbook
Inside the eyes, where you won’t look

I’m the broken mirror sight
I’m the silent ghost of doom
I exist in black and white
I’m in that picture with you

Silent ghost of doom

Don’t change my name
Don’t change my fate
Don’t change me at all
Your light is not enough to convert a soul
Don’t you start a fire you can’t control
We won’t burn out together, I’ve got to go now!

I’m the broken mirror sight
I’m the silent ghost of doom
I exist in black and white
I’m in that picture with you

Avoid the void, hypnoid asteroid
Humanoid, paranoid, android schizoid
Terrified, criticized, dehumanized, alive
My mind amplified inside my eyes

I rest just when you need to go
The cosmic belt it’s out of control
I get lost in an orbit slow
With a shattered dark soul

I’m the asteroid, humanoid, paranoid
Gone inside the void
I’m alive, hypnotized, neutralized
I’m just passing by…

Guess I don’t know where to go
Outside the orbit of Jupiter’s gold
Cast out with a nebula soul
Without gravity, sucked… into your black hole

I’m the asteroid, humanoid, paranoid
Gone inside the void
I’m alive, hypnotized, neutralized
I’m just passing by…

I run out from the dust I know to be part of my creation
The fallen stars of broken hope, showering out so distant
I’m worn out in the space I roam, drifting in the void
I let myself go…
I’m the asteroid, asteroid, humanoid, humanoid, paranoid

Avoid the void, hypnoid asteroid
Humanoid, paranoid, android schizoid
Terrified, criticized, dehumanized, alive
My mind amplified inside my eyes
Avoid the void, hypnoid asteroid
Humanoid, paranoid, android schizoid
Avoid the void, hypnoid asteroid
Avoid the void, hypnoid asteroid

I think I saw you in a dream today
Looking for a fancy place to stay
I think I saw your grace at a dying pace

I will pretend everything’s ok
I’ll follow you every step of the way
I love the thrill of a quiet chase
I love the thrill of a quiet chase

I could take your hand, I could be your friend

I think I heard you in a dream today
Searching for the right words to say
I think I heard your grace on a crying face

I can pretend you sound the same
Singing songs now fading away, hey, hey
You start to feel, time taking your place
You start to feel someone taking your place

I could take your hand, I could be your friend
In another time, you’re still alive
In a sonic fire we shall burn
In a cosmic mire we shall run
In another time, you will return

I think I saw you…

Leap down into slime the distance is crawling
Cascading into life, a new day is dawning
Strip all your secrets onto these roads
A multicolor trip beyond our blindfolds

Slower, further we strive
Slower, further we strive
At the end of the light…

Cast a little seed of how great we can be
Fall from the strobe light into the rolling sea
Conquer freedom on marbleized roads
Master the speed freaks out in the cold

Slower, further we strive
Slower, further we strive
At the end of the light
Drive your spirits down a special ride
At the end of the light
Drive your spirits down a special ride

I would like to be king, I would like to be seen so unreal
I would like to be king, I would like to be seen
I would like to be someone you can’t feel
I would like to be king, I would like to be seen so unreal
I would like, I won’t mind, I would like to trip behind the wheel

At the end of the light
Drive your spirits down a special ride
At the end of the light
Drive your spirits down…

Did you hear about the “Swamp Girl”?
Aberration? Miracle?
Snake and frog skin
Alligator Queen

Pat the “Dog-faced Woman”
Abomination? Wonder?
Heavy furred skin
Blind loyal queen

Meet the “Amazing Sisters”
Rejects? Prodigies?
Siamese twins
Two headed queens

Paralyzed by the Devil
Forsaken by God
Forget about Heaven
Attracted to the odd

In the arms of the freaks

Know another oddity?
Aversion? Mystery?
Unrest tattooed angel, treasured like a beast
Step right up. Try your luck
I run this place like a crook
Inside my dollar kiss boot, you’re loathing on me
Me, me, kiss, me, kiss me

In the arms of the freaks
In the arms of a…
Giant princess with elephant skin
A handless midget plays me the violin

I hang out with pastime intimate friends
The “Stingray Lady” wants to hold my hand
Poor sweet burning skin, humble lipless grin

In the arms of the freaks

Pain coming from the left, pain coming from the right
Pain just keeps on coming, hell breaks loose
Through the infinite nights on a brand new day
Stinging wasps can be the offspring of butterflies

Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
On the threshold of migraine
Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
Force the habit to send the pain away

Floating in the head of the lethargic man
A flattening of inertia with a message
In a bottle of pills, in a sea so conscious
To enlighten me to surf all scattered brain waves

Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
On the threshold of migraine
Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
Force the habit to send the pain away
Send the pain away

Standing on the edge of a mindless soil
Planting a seed of neurotic life
Slow deviation, slow castration, growing inside

Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
On the threshold of migraine
Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
Force the habit of another day
Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
On the threshold of migraine
Symptomatic, I’ve gone astray
Force the habit to send the pain away

Skidding away off to hell’s boundaries
Slithering in life with stolen velocity
Gliding in space and time on the undertow
Crawling with serpent eyes way too low
Way too low
Way too low

Leaders preaching animosity
They can teach me how to disappear
Will you pull me out of the undertow?
My swarming numb feet running slow
It’s time to show…
It’s time to show…

Fangs of venom

I’m sneaking to hell, you keep falling from grace
Take this grim look out of my face
I am charming God without fear
Wasting cold snake denims
Through poisoned years…
Through poisoned years…

Fangs of venom

I’ll pray if God comes my way
I’ll pay my dues another day
I’ll stay serving as your prey
Obey with your hands upon my face

Hysterical pride
Mourning brides
Hundreds of prey
Pilgrims of Decay

I’ll play every song your way
I’ll say what you want me to say

Hysterical pride
Mourning brides
Hundreds of prey
Pilgrims of Decay

We all pray to Gods we’ve betrayed
We are pilgrims of our own decay

Hysterical pride
Mourning brides
Hundreds of prey
Pilgrims of Decay

We all pray to Gods we’ve betrayed
We are pilgrims of our own decay

Don’t snatch my hand
Grab the devil’s tail
In the planet of no light

You will always try
You will always fail
While darkness strives

Sand tides, torrents of flies
Struggling to watch the sun rise

Rise from your grave
Fight for your holy grail
March through the void of times

Sand tides, torrents of flies
Struggling to watch the sun

Mapping the secrets of mankind
Tracking Jesus in your mind
Casting demons into swine to lead them across the land
Making them take a leap of faith

Wait for the mushroom clouds to glow
Send your prayers into mass inferno

Broadcast senseless repeated maydays

We’re fallout debris inside the crater

Sand tides, torrents of flies
Struggling to watch the sun
