Track Name: Dear God, You're Fired
Dear God, You're Fired

Verse 1

Today,
I fired God,
said pack your shit,
get out by 5,

'Cause you,
Are guilty of
unspeakable
in ineptitude

Yet you,
demand respect
for ever single little deed

But still
It's not enough
for centuries
your ego feeds

Chorus:

And how long will we have to pay
For this idea that's for sure man made
There's no defense
left, for this insanity and disgrace



Verse 2

As he puts his things inside a
cardboard box that supposed to look like wood,
he notices no one will look up from,
their cubicles as he fumbles out the door


Chorus:

And how long 'til we stop (will we have) to pay
For this idea that's for sure man made
There's no defense
left, for this insanity and disgrace





Bridge:

Now you wish someone would save you
But there's no one left who hears you
Track Name: Jacked In and Burned Out
Barely slept for 7 days
Reality becomes a daze
When your whole world becomes one craze

One focused burning bright light
That's all you've got,
adrift in cyberspace


If I could reveal
All that I know
With the holoprojector's glow

If I could bestow
All that they know
Through your dermatrode


The table's set
Groundwork's laid
It's time to make our final play
Switch on the Ono-Sendai,
send me away
Track Name: Post Victory Daze
I take your hand and I hold it tight,
Under the purple/red pollution sky,
The burning cars give off a gorgeous light
The drainage canal looks so magical tonight

The meter reads all clear…
Your mask comes off and I see your eyes for the first time in a year


In this victory we are anew
This perfect evening spent alone with you
And as we watch this city set ablaze
We bask in this glowing post war daze


I drift away into the back of my mind
and think about all that has brought us here.
and try to answer every "how" and "why"
I never thought the propaganda machine would die
The fog of war has cleared,
And now I can see our love for what it is,
for the first time without fear

Bridge:
Unsanctioned love was the enemy,
This was the core of their tyranny
What you can't buy you can get for free
But if, you're free
Track Name: Spare Parts
It started out with a shiny new circuit board,
etched by hand with with a flawless transfer
then began the soldering, of the servos and diodes and transistors
I don't need your schematics, this leaking heart, will guide my hand

And then all you really need, is a little electricity….

To bring her to life -----
To bring her to life ----
To bring her to life -----
To bring her to life ----

The wires all have been affixed
and that's when I begin initial testing,
the oscillator starts to sing,
my pulse picks up, my pupils dilating
Mixed with the sound of my heavy breathing
she moans with ecstasy as I start tweaking
Her shiny knobs through her square waves and sine waves
Then comes the bondage of the lowpass filter

That she accepts with poise and grace

There's one thing left to do, connect her CV out, straight into you

She brings you to life ----
She brings you to life ----
She brings you to life ----
She brings you to life ----

Her LFO control, patched straight to my soul
One point twenty-one orgasmic gigawatts of fun.

She brings you to life
She brings you to life
She brings you to life
She brings you to life

You bring her to life -----
She brings you to life -----
You bring her to life -----
She brings you to life -----
Track Name: The Bargain
Don't make me make you fall in love with me
But if you do not give me what I want for free
I'll mother-fucking make you fall in love with me

I'm not that kinda girl
You say to me
As if that means a thing
at all

The definition of a whore
is when you go in wanting more
Then the simple pleasure of it all

I ----
Wont' ----
Fall ----
But you will

-------------

Don't make me make you fall in love with me
And do not make me play games 'cause I play for keeps
Don't make me make you promises that I won't keep

I've got patience on my side, I'll bid my time

This is what you get when you bargain with me

--------------

I told you that I am a busy man
Simple is the best I'll catch you when I can
I ----
Wont' ----
Fall ----
But you will

Don't you put your heart out on the line
Just in the off chance that I don't rob you blind
I ----
Wont' ----
Fall ----
But you will

You wanted me to promise you the world,
You bargain hard, my black flag's unfurled
I ----
Wont' ----
Fall ----
But you will
