Falun Gong 05:27
FALUN GONG hello, I'll be your warden for tonight are you sitting right? we want what's inside of you and stitch you up with super-glue isn't it great what super-glue can do for you? how d'you like your cell? built above an oil well admit that you were wrong submit you Falun Gong! we gave you homes we gave you life we gave you everything you threw it back in our face how d'you like your cell? your death will be our oil well admit that you were wrong submit you Falun Gong we gave you homes we gave you life we gave you everything and still you ask for more! you can be so free you can have it all you can stand with me on a tower ten feet tall admit that you were wrong!
DETESTABLE CREATURES detestable creatures, stagnant pool in the palm of my hand watch them work for their merrits worth playing into the hands of a man who hates what he sees detests what he knows speaks in foreign tongues like an emperor, he wears no clothes remember you're another brick, another prick of the thorn in their side Theseus' ship remained the same although his crew now sails another tide remember you're another brick, another brick in that wall they take you out, it's bound to crumble down into a pile of sand in my palm watch it blow away 'till every last grain is gone you hate what you know detest what you see bound to live your life as a misanthropic nobody don't you think it's funny how it's always you and never someone else? don't you know these thoughts will make you want to... better find another place to spit 'cause I won't be having none if it dirty boy, you dirty you better find another place to spit don't you spit into my hand and tell me 'cause you spit into my hand you just spit into my hand and wash away the pain with those grubby finger stains you just...
Visit 06:17
VISIT I'm visiting the harem and it won't be long I might stay out until this night turns into dawn and then I´ll pick me one from the crowd yes you know, that it might get loud you might go insane visiting my girls tonight 'till the morning light if I said four or five then you know that it would be a lie and then we retire beneath the sheets you're so sweet, to be a part of me with my part in you you might go insane I'm vising the harem, baby and I'm feeling sick If I'd throw upon myself would you think that I'm a total dick? then we go to a cold dark room it's your tomb, find myself on you you might go insane
STAY IN YOUR DREAMS are my eyes opened or closed? I can't be sure and so I try to fly, and it turns out I can glide don't want to see the sun. It's not too bright I stay in my dream and never wake up If this is heaven, I would die right now while others live alive, in bed you lie reach the higher plane! and just like space debris, gravity pulls you down again when you come down to earth heaven seems so far away you stay in your dream and never wake up oh, how I wish I could go back to sleep because you haunt me in my dreams
Bow Down 06:18
BOW DOWN all the pretty signs really speak my mind I leave my sense behind 'till your voice is mine your voice is treacle, trickle through my brain I never learn or listen. What I have to gain? you're much (we own) much too young too simple to know when you've been stung you're much (you all) much too young so give us your vote or face that gun! (bow down) shut up and dance, sucker shut up and dance! (bow down) shut up and listen to the people in charge, we got your number I have the power to change the world cosmetically the tool to alter lifes dramatically it's a deterrant against the rest trust in me, I use it best watch this world go up in flames I ask the lord, in whom I trust give me the strenght when the time comes to be more then just a loser
GAS 14:29
GAS come take me by the hand I'll lead you through mist-laden lands living chemical dreams grasping at what it means the fear that grips my soul is an animal howling at the moon flash of pearly teeth in an ink black sea, I resist the doom the path I walk is endless as my beast becomes a boar the waves will crash relentless on the shore the way stretches so far down a moon-painted path will the voice inside my mind stay till the end of time?
