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…

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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
