Track Name: All You Can Eat
the grass grows in the field and the cows eat all the grass
and i eat all the cows so i can have a big white ass
attention wal-mart shoppers there’s a sale on isle five
so get spatstic with your plastic ain’t it great to be alive
what a happy day at the all you can eat buffet
fill the whole damn tray at the all you can eat buffet
let me here you say “GO USA” at the all you can eat buffet
just throw it all away at the all you can eat buffet
the cows grow in the field and the test tubes grew the eggs
when genetically perfected they won’t even need their legs
get excited Walmart shoppers there’s a new machine to buy
it brings you spiritual salvation only $19.95
woke up one morning decided my i would make contact with
freaks that eyes often don’t have it
saw the glutton eyes that look away from pain
try to satisfy the appetites in vain
look into the eyes of a child to redeem
sing merrily this life is but a dream
one morning i woke up my ear could could hear what
when no one was listening those people who spoke up
inside of every whisper was a scream
of how alone when no one listens so it seems
all I have to offer back is my ear and a song
singing merrily this life is but a dream…
Track Name: Overboard
set out to sail the seven seas we sailed everywhere
we where we pleased but when the storm was coming towards
I noticed you jumping overboard

Lord what to do when the waves are high when to let it go
when to stay ant try did you have to burn the whole thing down
how’d you swim away while i was left to drown
its just not right

when the ship wrecked and it was all done
I know you were afraid and wanted to run
but did you ever turn you head to see
what was happening to me

passing time the eye can see
the way that fate can fuck with me
but all that anger all the hell
I only brought upon myself

I saw god smile when i surfed between
the waves that crashed around me in St. Augustine
I heard god cry when i yelled that night
you didn’t even try, try to put up a fight
Lord what to do when the waves are high
pray to let it go and forgive it all
I heard god cry when i yelled that night
I always have to be so fucking right
Track Name: Enough
when i first found you thought of you got me so high
but i’m amazed at how quickly the hunger is leaving my eye
oh i think its time to

put you in a box in the clear bubble wrap
and store you in the garage next to this or to that
and we smile cause the pile it mile high in a stack
and the only thing i’m lacking is the thing that i lack
which is enough

ten thousand years ago our fathers went astray
they made their own bondage just to find an easier way
I’ve had enough
eventually must seem to be enough
but it’s never quite enough

do you remember when we first met i was just five years old
you were a big shiny toy and i would have sold my soul
you know it only took a couple years till want turned into need
and greed grew a twisted tree from such a simple seed
time to put you in the box in the clear bubble wrap
and iIe content without the thing that i lack which is enough

necesitamos cuidado con la verdad que compramos
cosas y mas cosas es el dios de los Estados
iglesias esta en el centro de ciudades de Latinos
aqui en el centro solo hay mercados

ten thousand years ago our fathers went astray
sacrificing the balance around in pursuit of an easier way
you think you’ve got what its about
you think its about what you’ve got
the pot has been boiling so slowly
no ones even getting hot
I’ve had enough
Track Name: Make Believe
the early noon yawns i shake off my dreams
dreamt i was a dragonfly lying by a stream
but skin and bone awoke to my world of make believe
when i know i was a dragonfly dreaming that he’s me
the playhouse comes to life so i stop to have a listen
riding down the sliding board and fly into the kitchen
where Aimee's wearing fairy wings and cooking up some chicken (veg)
so i hit her with some glitter, “Murphy, stop being silly!”
outside on the lawn you can see Mr. Gone
and you know he’s going off with the over-the-top-hat on
he got belief and disbelief its just placebo in a bottle
wookies always looking for the psychedelic throttle
cosmic swami got a message beaming in from outer space
there's a place on your face you can save the human race
its called a smile
the positivity will spread it takes a while
but the grin will turn an inch into a mile
and butterfly wings will be the style
all you got to do is just

make believe

clouds floating by like elephants
rainbow shining overhead must be heaven sent
don’t dismiss or you’ll miss all the relevance
when your belief’s in your hands it’s benevolence
glitter girl wakes in her room full of clouds
and it must be afternoon cuz the reggae’s booming loud
Jojo blowing bubbles to the firmament
if you catch one in your hand it might be permanent
hat eine swanzig mark note und er brennt sie
this non sequitur the lesson but we’re learning it turning it
inside out and upside down
abduction is the key to the door that goes underground
we found there’s a river that ties it all together
and you gotta jump in even though you can’t swim
and you drift to a cave where you’re drowning in your doubt
but Shadow’s got the lab coat on and he’s there to pull you out
strapped to a table with your fear just remember that
nothing ever is as it appears, the man in the
mask removes your chip just in time
now you’re initiated to the Undermind
its all just
make belief
the nighttime arrives the moon will inspire
a freak drum circle with fairies spinning fire
we chant down Babylon Marco drops a beat
Capt. Happy got a five-foot stilts on his feet
enter Mr. Bliss with Melissa the nurse
his license is poetic his verse unrehearsed
a candy necklace is a great sign of wealth in our tribe
and knowing is an omen when i see a butterfly by
its all in my head is what my caseworker said
and the knots in my brain grow out into dreads
Weedman’s in his room just watching cartoons
i better get some sleep got to be up around noon
just close my eyes and wake up from my dream
and go back to being a dragonfly lying by a stream
believe it so i see its all
make believe
Track Name: HIgh Is High
if this day got any worse i’d be dropping a verse
about a doctor and a nurse and a cop and hearse
but if its like a rehearsed where the meek get the earth
and the last shall be first i’ll be the front of the damn line
its time i find just how i resign go for yours cuz i don’t even want mine
elated at being sedated a chillum of sativa and glass of wine
i just try to get mine

smoke so much that i don’t know why
on the way down high passed me by and i found that
high is high
try to get higher but high is high
hand in the fire and you don’t know why
look him in the eye just look him in the eye and i found that
high is high

good and plenty ripped and munching on some Ramen
on the couch next to me appeared the spirit of a shaman
saying, “the key’s to be a monk, not just be a monkey,
pissing away your bliss you’re going to be a Bliss Junky”
so i fill her up a chillum and she takes a little hit and says,
“haven’t you had enough of this shit,
you’re going to huff and puff and blow your mind down”
and i said shut up and keep passing that pipe around

high is high is high is high…and high just passed me by

almost had a bad trip fell down
swimming in the silence drowning in the sound
of the voices in the other side of that curtain i’m certain
it’s a bad place i’ve found
grab it by the horns ride it all around
umbilical cord tied me to the ground
but i took to much and cut it got so high
that i can’t come down
Track Name: All The Kings Horses
bomb hits the tower drains the superpower
building spilling out flame in a shower
innocence don’t make sense they go out for us
with spirit getting buried in a cloud of dust
we scramble through the meaningless and look to religion
pray a holy man be sent with higher vision
hope he be a philosopher artist or musician
but only fear hits my ear through the radio transmission

all the kings horses and all the kings men
couldn’t put it back to together again

when Rome was burning down Nero play his violin
listen low to hear the sound still echo in the wind
the asylum on the island though that no one could ever touch
no glutton snooze button cuz we already sleep to much
put the meaning in their sacrifice by waking the fuck up and asking
why does half the world hate out government so much

all the kings horses and all the kings men
couldn’t put it back together again
don’t put it back together don’t put it in the back of your mind
if we go back to the beginning everything will work out fine
so don’t be afraid
Track Name: Not Sees
in this cause too i am prepared to die
there is no cause for which i am prepared to kill
i am asking you to fight, to fight against the anger, not to provoke it
we will not strike a blow

if you stand for nothing
you can’t fall for anything

no freedom gained when blood stained

what would you sacrifice for you to get your way have it made
hand on the mic what would you have to say any ways
any means necessary justified
slave becomes the oppressor when the master dies

an eye for an eye just leave us blind
for a story we already know
history repeating we all get a beating
the angry just reap what we sow

Don’t you know?
Can’t you see?
There the sees, and the not sees
which one are you?
Track Name: OP8
nod my head when chalky finger pointing down
when condescending tone alone the only sound
when ruler hit my knuckle on the holy ground
when every time she talk about a wedding gown
its not in the words that your singing
it’s the way that you sing their song
nails on a chalkboard its got my head ringing
and I’m not going to sing along

i just nod my head

no love in his heart no beat in his chest
but he’s saving all his change to buy bullet proof vest

i look around this world for some guidance
the far corners where Nothing is said
looking for old men sitting on mountains in silence
Dalia Lama gives a smile and he nods his head

so i nod my head
Track Name: Nod My Head
nod my head when chalky finger pointing down
when condescending tone alone the only sound
when ruler hit my knuckle on the holy ground
when every time she talk about a wedding gown
its not in the words that your singing
it’s the way that you sing their song
nails on a chalkboard its got my head ringing
and I’m not going to sing along

I just nod my head

no love in his heart no beat in his chest
but he’s saving all his change to buy bullet proof vest

I look around this world for some guidance
the far corners where Nothing is said
looking for old men sitting on mountains in silence
Dalia Lama gives a smile and he nods his head

so I nod my head
Track Name: Falling Down Trying
are you falling down drunk are you falling down trying
do you walk with the sheep do you roar with the lion
are you singing your war cry or are you just crying
if I’m not falling down drunk I’ll be falling down trying

my old friend mick McGuire was the best man alive
till he traded in his spirit at the age of 25
now he hits from the bog as he sits on the floor
and he scored a lot of points on his Nintendo 64

is the right to remain silent all you want? (hell no!)
is the television thinking all your thought? (hell no!)
is a man only worth what he’s bought? (hell no!)
is the right to remain silent all you got? (hell no!)

i can’t believe you’re reading all these lyrics
thank you for taking the time we love you

my good friend Michael Conner at the age of 24
had sold himself to slavery to the ugly corporate whore
i don’t know if its wrong but it doesn’t feel right
to be in your Warrior Years and not looking for a fight
I'll scream it with Jah at the top of Mt. Zion
Track Name: John Henry
John Henry had a hammer slammer through a mountainside his eyes
you’d see a new machine was coming running down his pride
in school they taught he was a hero throw yourself in front of never
stopping industry confused cuz in the end he died

some say I’m a steel driving man
really i drive steel
into holes hard enough to bust juices of passion through peels
for my zeal for the new deal
may combat depression of pockets for me and my queen
to get our ticket to a meal
so i feel
to beat the machine before the whistle squeals
i slang hammers
bustin rocks with human appeal
for no system will ever beat me
but the irony
is competition will be the eventual death of me
so let’s see
what the moral of the story be
empathy for machines created by self-reflections
or for those who lube societies with greed and misdirection
linked like chain gangs singing spirituals while death and infection
resurrection of the truth in the form of falsified fables and perceptions
enigmatic like holes that swallow the universe not to return
and in turn
conceal like mascara the biggest lessons to learn
Track Name: Out Of My Way
and if you can’t stand the pain then get your hand out the flame
and if you don’t like to lose get your ass out the game
and if you don’t like the cold then you had better fly south
and if you don’t like the taste then get the shit out your mouth

get out of your way

how come every damn time i get it but i never get it right
cuz my pants get caught on fire or a needle in my eye
i think I'm gonna hit rock bottom but i fall right through the floor
i hear the opportunity knocking but i never get the door

no i don’t really know
why this place fucking sucks but i don’t want to go
this place fucking sucks but i just can’t leave here

how come every damn time i get it but i never get it right
just a victim to my vengeance anger bitterness or spite
i sabotage myself almost every single day
i can’t get out of my vacuum cleaner

and if you don’t like my touch you can hide in your shell
and if you want to eat shit you had better get used to the smell
and if you leg bone is broke then you can learn how to vacuum
and if you can’t stand up you better get ready to fall

how come every damn time i get it but i never get it right
cuz my pants get caught on fire or a needle in my eye
my blessing or my tragedy both living in the same beast
hiding underneath the bed with a double sided blade to cut me

i can’t get out of my way
Track Name: Roommate
every damn day when i get home
my head is ringing like the phone
sanctuary is all i need
but then i see you rotting there
lazy boy with Sega stare
bong sucking leech that makes me bleed
because you take it and you take it
and you never give it back
always dirtying my dishes
always snaking on my snacks
i gotta ask myself why am i still here
are you still here?!?!

this apartment like a living hell
prison riot in a jail cell
what on earth is that annoying smell
can’t you tell?
my roommate sucks

every damn day when you get home
i wish you’d just leave me alone
can’t you give your mouth a rest
i know it is a mortal sin
but i did not wash this fork again
are you going to stick it in my chest
because you give it and you give it
and its driving me insane
i gotta take another bong hit
just to cope while you complain
i gotta ask myself why am i still here
are you still here?!?!

and then i bring home a six pack
and he sparks up a bowl
a brief moment of forgiveness
and then he has the nerve
to smoke and drink it all

my roommate sucks
Track Name: Get Down
blame is as useful a tool as the time when you
swung with an ax to knock the fly off my forehead
worry prevents problems as often as coffins soften
the smack of the fact your forgotten when you’re dead
wipe that smile this trial is crushing my memory failed
i nailed your foot to the floor again
i once was lost but now I’ve found there’s no way around
I’m more lost than i was back in Oregon

i wanna get down
don’t make me laugh

they said they’d be home by nine but they lied
lay down try to sleep and repeat everything’s gonna be fine
no headlights or sign of the car in the driveway
afraid and alone in this world and up way past my bedtime
she was just right here in the cereal isle
but she disappeared between the rushing knees across the floor again
i once was lost but now I’ve found there’s no way around
I’m more lost than i was back in Oregon
