1. Fuck Armageddon... This Is Hell

there's people out there that say I'm no good
'cause I don't believe the things that I should
and when the final conflict comes, I'll be so sorry I did wrong
and hope and pray that our Lord God will think I'm good

countries manufacture bombs and guns
to kill your brother for something that he hasn't even done
smog is ruining my lungs, but they aren't sorry they've done wrong
they hide behind their lies that they're helping everyone

in the end the good will go to heaven up above
the bad will perish in the depths of hell

how can hell be any worse
when life alone is such a curse?
fuck Armageddon, this is hell

we're living in the denoument of the battle's gripping awe
so what's the use of being good to satisfy them all?

how could hell be any worse?
life alone is such a curse!
fuck Armageddon, this is hell


2. Dearly Beloved

Here's a story of an honest man losing religion
Climbing the pulpit steps before an eager congregation
The while praying came a wicked inspiration
Brothers, sisters this is what he said:

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I've seldom seen evidence of genres)
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you

He was the kind of guy who'd always go right out of his way
But more before that crazy notion leapt right into his head
And stubbornly (secretly - NMoH Deluxe) crept into every mad perception
I can't deny a funny feeling when he said

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I've seldom seen evidence of genres)
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you

Dearest in memoriam - set phasers to stun
And grab yourself a neighbor's skeleton to lean upon
Did you know him in life? - one filled with regret
So soon we all forget we ever met
Do you know my name? - sing a light refrain
For a man estranged - I won't deny that I'm inclined to isolate

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I've seldom seen evidence of genres)
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you
I can't relate to you, I can't relate to you


3. Suffer

did you ever see the concrete stares of everyday?
the lunatic, the hypocrite are all lost in the fray
can't you see their lives are just like yours?
an unturned stone, an undiscovered
door leading to
the gift of hope renewed
eternity for you
the masses of humanity have always had to suffer

the businessman whose master plan controls the world each day
is blind to indications of his species slow decay
can't you see their lives are just like yours?
an unturned stone, an undiscovered
door leading to
the gift of hope renewed
eternity for you
the masses of humanity have always had to suffer

people blow their minds
they choose to resign
this deformed society
is part of the design
it'll never go away
it's in the cards that way
the masses of humanity
have always, always had to suffer!

a door leading to
the gift of hope renewed
eternity for you
the masses of humanity
still clinging to their dignity
the masses of humanity
will always, always have to suffer!


4. Man with a Mission

rescue me when I get too deep
talk to me there's nothing to tell
everyone is a hypocrite
look to me, I'll save your soul
now somebody out there must be reading my mail
'cuz everybody knows

follow me, when you give up
work for me, it'll serve you well
everyone is a hypocrite
come to me, I'll save your soul
now somebody out there must be tapping my phone
'cuz everybody knows

I'm a man with a mission
I'm gonna fly you away
high above the noise and competition
I'm a man with a mission

now somebody out there must be reading my mail
'cuz everybody knows

I'm a man with a mission
passing through your town today
I condemn you to fiery perdition
I'm a man with a mission


5. New Dark Ages

Yeah can you hear the call in our rambling land
Susurrations that can expand beyond all hope of light
and plunge us into unrelenting night
A pall on truth and reason,
It feels like hunting season
So avoid those lines of sight
and we'll set this right

Welcome to the new dark ages
Yeah, I hope you're living right
These are the new dark ages
And the world might end tonight

Now come ye children one and all
let's heed Ezekiel's call
And bide until the word is good and ripe and get plucked
clean out of sight
The world will be erased
Our kin will be immaculate ejaculate in space
Before the king of king's love,
he'll snatch us from above,
brothers help me sing it

Welcome to the new dark ages
I hope you're living right
These are the new dark ages
And the world might end tonight

So how do you sleep? - there's nothing to keep -
This is deep
Because we're animals - with golden rules
Who... who can't be moved by rational views yeah

Welcome to the new dark ages
I hope you're living right
Welcome to the new dark ages
And the world might end tonight


6. Germs of Perfection

Lacerate eviscerate and perforate and mutilate
We all fall down, all fall down
Deprecate repudiate ameliorate adjudicate
The wisdom found, wisdom found

Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction
Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection

Delegate facilitate investigate and obviate
The black turns green, black turns green
Separate evaluate and cultivate and propagate
The master's dream, master's dream

Sing the fears of history with a renewed inflection
View the lost agenda with a skeptic's intention

Machine of life oh can we make it run
We have the tools, but only just begun
Machine of life oh can we make it run
The calculations of a greater sum

Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction
Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection
Perfection!


7. Marked

if I'm a monster, I am a willing one
this roller coaster ride is an enticing one
on the tip of a continuum flowing wavelike
through disorder carry me like a vessel to water

everything you see leaves a mark on your soul
everything you feel leaves a mark on your soul
everything you touch leaves a mark on your soul
everything you make leaves a mark on your soul

if I can touch it, I can destroy it
if it's imaginable to some degree I can become it
like a hungry turning vortex that just flickers to existence
consuming bits and pieces until I'm finally extinguished

everyone you see leaves a mark on your soul
everyone you bare leaves a mark on your soul
everyone you touch leaves a mark on your soul
everyone you love leaves a mark on your soul

everything you take leaves a mark on your soul
everything you give leaves a mark on your soul
and all the fear and loneliness that's impossible to control
and every tear you cry leaves a mark on your soul


8. A Walk

I'm going for a walk
not the after dinner kind
I'm gonna use my hands
and I'm gonna use my mind

and who the hell are you to tell me what to do?
you can't even tie your own haggard shoes
your closet is a mess, and your backyard's falling down
and I have no grand ideas or intentions of sticking around

I'm going for a walk
not the after dinner kind
I'm gonna use my hands
and I'm gonna use my mind
and I'm gonna build a world
independant and exempt
all alone I'll be an empire
with no mortgage and no rent

and I don't need to live in your stinking zoo
you can't even feed the animals donated to you
your storage sheds are ramshackled, flies decorate the walls
and you expect me to die here in this shit-filled tiny stall?
I'm going for a walk

and I know you're watching everything I do
call me threat to your children call me socially unglued
call me master of insanity, unable to relate
call me lazy, bane and filthy
call me monstrous reprobate

I'm going for a walk
and there's nothing you can do
'cuz I don't have to live like you
I'm going for a walk


9. Flat Earth Society

lie, lie, lie...

the full moon is rising over dark waters
and the fools below are picking up sticks
and the man in the gallows lies permanently waiting
for the doctors to come back and tend to him

the flat Earth society is meeting here today
singing happy little lies
and the bright ship humana is sent far away
with grave determination
and no destination

lie, lie, lie...

yeah, nothing feels better than a spray of clean water
and the whistling wind on a calm summer night
but you'd better believe that down in their quarters
the men are holding in for their dear lives

the flat Earth society is somewhere far away
with their candlesticks and compasses
and the bright ship humana is well on its way
with grave determination
and no destination

lie, lie, lie...


10. Resist Stance

Seeds of rebellion lay outside your front door
If you nourish them and water them they'll grow into a healthy what for?
And if revolution isn't what's in store
How can you care anymore?

It's a dangerous slip,
a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
Lest the state of your resolve makes you quickly devolve to a fundamentalist

You're an archetype
That they can pin to the wall
As you cling to all convictions like a farm animal in its stall
Never thinking of the bigger world outside
As they take you for a ride

It's a dangerous slip,
a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
Because passion unabated will be readily conflated with belligerence

It's a dangerous slip,
a conscientious shift
The spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
And the verdict won't be kind 'cuz they're desperate for a viable alternative

Take a stance. The Resist stance.


10. Opór (tłum. Ofmika)

Ziarna buntu leżą przed twoimi drzwiami
Jeśli zadbasz o nie i podlejesz je, wyrośnie z nich zdrowe "po co?"
A jeśli rewolucja nie jest dla ciebie
To jak możesz się czymkolwiek przejmować?

To niebezpieczny poślizg
Staranne przesunięcie
Musisz działać w duchu oporu
Żeby twoje decyzje szybko nie przemieniły cię w fundamentalistę

Jesteś archetypem
Który mogą przyszpilić do ściany
Jeśli trzymasz się wszystkich przekonań niczym zwierzę w zagrodzie
Nie myśląc o większym świecie na zewnątrz
Pozwalając im się wykiwać

To niebezpieczny poślizg
Staranne przesunięcie
Musisz działać w duchu oporu
Bo niesłabnąca pasja łatwo łączy się z agresywnością

To niebezpieczny poślizg
Staranne przesunięcie
Musisz działać w duchu oporu
I werdykt nie będzie łagodny, bo oni rozpaczliwie pragną realnej alternatywy

Postaw się. Staw opór.
11. American Jesus

I don't need to be a global citizen
'cause I'm blessed by nationality
I'm a member of a growing populace
we enforced our popularity
there are things that seem to pull us under
and there are things that drag us down
but there's a power and a vital presence
that's lurking all around

we've got the american Jesus
see him on the interstate
we've got the american Jesus
he helped build the president's estate

I feel sorry for the Earth's population
'cuz so few live in the U.S.A.
at least the foreigners can copy our morality
they can visit but they cannot stay
only precious few can garner our prosperity
it makes us walk with renewed confidence
we've got a place to go when we die
and the architect resides right here

we've got the american Jesus
bolstering national faith
we've got the american Jesus
overwhelming millions every day

he's the farmer barren fields
the force the army wields
expressions on the faces
of the starving millions
he's the power of the man
the fuel that drives the clan
he's the motive and the conscience
of the murderer
he's the preacher on TV
the false sincerity
the form letters that's written by
the big computers
he's the nuclear bombs
and the kids with no moms
and I'm fearful
that he's inside me
(In God we trust)
(because he's one of us)
(break down, cave in)
(we can redeem your sins)
(strong heart, clear minds)
(and infinitely kind)
(you lose, we win)
(he is our champion!)

we've got the american Jesus
see him on the interstate
we've got the american Jesus
exercising his authority

one nation under God...


12. Social Suicide

Right now!
Well it's finally time to face my fears
Gonna get the hell out of here
And create a fresher atmosphere
But the consequence is clear

There's a furnace set on high
And a yearning undefined
But it's time to turn the tide
It's social suicide

Like you!
Perseverance is a useless tool
Just a patron on a ship of fools
Feigning interest in the cast and crew
While you've broken every single rule

There's a furnace set on high
And a yearning undefined
But it's time to turn the tide
It's social suicide

Shadows entertain the unwashed masses
Scholars explain their numb reactions
I don't even know if I can ever find Truth
But I'm sure it won't come from following you


13. Atheist Peace

Maybe it's too late for intellectual debate
But a residue of confusion remains
Changing with the times and developmentally tortured minds
Are the average citizens' sources of pain

"Tell me what we're fighting for"
I don't remember anymore
Only temporary reprieve
And the world might cease
If we fail to tame the beast
From the faith that you release
Comes an atheist peace

Political forces rent
Bitter cold winds of discontent
And the modern age emerged triumphantly
But now it seems we've stalled
And it's time to de-evolve
And relive the dark chapters of history

"Tell me what we're fighting for"
No progress ever came from war
Only a false sense of increase
And the world won't wait
For the truth upon a plate
But we're ready now to feast
on an atheist peace

Atheist peace


14. Tomorrow

ya hey!

every day we profit so
leaning towards the great unknown
asking how it pertains to tomorrow
aim for places we've not been
trample paths that go between
yesterdays foundations and tomorrow

it's the way they say it's got to be
we spear ahead and forge our destiny
who do they represent? who do you believe?
make a sound decision for others to heed

try to set a faster pace
try to build a master race
one that will make a contribution to tomorrow

it's the way they say it's got to be
we put aside our fears and make history
the clothes are in the dryer and the writing is on the wall
we're doing everything we can to stop this fall

everyday we profit so
leaning towards the great unknown


15. Won't Somebody

Won't somebody please come up with something?
'Cuz Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all the rest are really down in the ratings
While everyone is right here waiting

Out in the cold
Like a bundle of coal
Little packets of darkness
Wanting to glow
Well there's nobody home
And there's a wreck in the yard
And maybe they're coming back
If we wish really hard
If we wish real hard, now

Won't somebody please come up with something?
'Cuz Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all the rest are really down in the ratings
But everyone is gonna keep on waiting

Waiting for peace
At the end of our streets
Back behind our apartments
In our passenger seats
Just a moment of bliss
Amid all of the waste
But despair and oblivion
Of our precarious race
Its ours to face, now

Won't somebody please come up with something?
'Cuz Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings
But everyone is still right here wating

Now I know nothing lasts forever
So we might as well wish for a goddam fix
Of this toxic change in weather


16. Los Angeles Is Burning

Somewhere high in the desert near a curtain of a blue
St. Anne's skirts are billowing
But down here in the city of limelights
The fans of Santa Anna are withering
And you can't deny that living is easy
If you never look behind the scenery
it's showtime for dry climes
And bedlam is dreaming of rain

When the hills of Los Angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And Los Angeles is burning

This is not a test
Of the emergency broadcast system
When Malibu fires and radio towers
Conspire to dance again
And I cannot believe the media Mecca
They're only trying to peddle reality
Catch it on prime time, story at nine
The whole world is going insane

A placard reads
"The end of days"
Jacaranda boughs are bending in the haze
More a question than a curse
How could hell be any worse?
The flames are stunning
The camera's running
So take warning


17. We're Only Gonna Die

early man walked away
as modern man took control
their minds weren't all the same
to conquer was his big goal
so he built his great empire
and he slaughtered his own kind
then he died, a confused man
killed himself with his own mind
go!

we're only gonna die from our own arrogance
