Track Name: Don't Double Cross Me
Don’t don’t double double cross me
This said the earth to humanity
You you won’t won’t like what you see
So don’t don’t double double cross me

Acid rain is just the pain of the earth cried through the sky
Melting ice, the rising levels of the ocean are much too high
The germs that live in the tundra break out to come and get ya
In one hundred years, we’ll ask ourselves

How could this happen?
How could we not see?
How could we not care
what we do to we?
How did this happen?
How did we not see?
How did we not care?
How could we not believe?

I hope my children’s children can still grow some food to eat
I hope my children’s children can still live through the desert’s heat

There is no turning around
There is no more holy ground

The scientists are all afraid to say how bad it really is
The politicians spread their lies so they can go to their biz

Don’t don’t double double cross me
This said the earth to humanity
You you won’t won’t like what you see
So don’t don’t double double cross me

How could this happen?
How did we not see?
How could we not care?
How could we not believe?
Track Name: I Want Your Body
I’m not afraid to say it

The DJ’s playing that song
The one that turns you on
The DJ’s playing that song
The one that turns me on
The DJ’s playing that song
You make me wait so long
You know, you know,
You know what I want

I want your body, come with me tonight
I want to party, til the morning light
I want to get down with you baby, all right
I’m not afraid to say it, no

I see you dancing in the neon bright
Stop cold in my tracks, your moves are so tight
I am a cigarette and you are my light
My head catches fire when you touch me right

I want your body, come with me tonight
I want to party, til the morning light
I want to get down with you baby, all right
I’m not afraid to say it

Dance
Take off your pants
And your shirt and your skirt
Do it til it hurts

I want your body, come with me tonight
I want to party, til the morning light
I want to get down with you baby, all right
I’m not afraid to say it

I want your body
I want to party
I want to get down with you baby, all right
I’m not afraid to say it, no
Track Name: Gaslight
Sold our soul to the technic plan
Forgot what it means to be human
Voice drowned out in the sub sound waves
Don’t you know that only Jesus saves
Ears gone deaf in the digital noise
Blood dried up in the binary sun
Lost our sex to the circuitboard whore
Now we can’t tell what’s real anymore

They’ll tell you that there’s no fire burning
And the flat earth isn’t turning
But the flames are already at the door
This gaslight smoke’s so thick I can’t see anymore

But even more evil is the bending of truth
By those in charge with evil at their root
Encouraging hate, another brick in the wall
With bigots and racists answering the call
If we are to live our ecstatic lives
Then all of these devils will have to die
No more falling for their tricks and lies
You know they’re enslaving us before our eyes

A plan, a plan to divide our hands
Pull us apart across the land
We’re fighting ourselves and still don’t see
We’re sinking fast in quicksand

They’ll tell you that there’s no fire burning
And the flat earth isn’t turning
But the flames are already at the door
This gaslight smoke’s so thick I can’t see anymore
Track Name: Coming of Age
Started smokin’ again
Don’t ask my why
So caught up in my head
Can’t tell left from right

Am I ready for this change?
Is this what they call a coming of age?
It seems to me we are turning the page
When one chapter ends and another begins

Started worrying again
About the light at the end
What am I leavin’ behind
When there’s no more time

I am ready for this change
My bags are packed to cross the mountain range
In the next act of the play on the stage
When one curtain falls and another is risen

I’ve got my fears and regrets
Shoulda coulda woulda but there are no safe bets
I’ll take my chances with the truth
And soon be finding out
From the top of the mountain
It’s a brand new view

We pull each other through
Walking side by side
It’s the path we did choose
We are in it for the ride
Track Name: The Next Great Destroyer
This is a criminal mess
But we expected no less, oh no
You're gonna go down in history
But i guess that's how you want it to be

You don't understand "we"
You can't play on the team
Because it's all about you
This is why we will lose

Going down in history
As the next great destroyer
Betray our past, burn our tree
You will become the next great destroyer

Yes you talk a big game
You've got all the fame
You sell a golden brand
But you’re so small a man

Going down in history
As the next great destroyer
Betray our past, burn our tree
You are now the next great destroyer
Track Name: The Dilemma
We fell in love when we were just in our teens
We knew you weren’t old enough for me but
When we locked eyes, we wanted to die
We knew we had to try

So, I asked your Mom, “Can I please take her out now?”
I asked your Mom

She had that look the one that says
“Oh no, I know your intentions”
She was no spring chicken herself
She’d been around the block, that’s for sure
She knew what I wanted from you
And she said

“How can I know that you’ll treat her right?
I think you have to show me first, tonight”

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

I’m lost in a haze between what I want and how to get it
Between what I know is right and what feels so wrong
It’s across the limits
In my dream we run to the stream
Ready to dive from cliffs on high
I turn to see your eyes
And then I realize
It’s your mother in my dream
It’s your mother and I scream

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

I thought that this should be the last thing that I would do
But maybe it’s the only way that I can get to you…
So what should I do?!

We won’t let your mother tell us what to do
We know what we want, me and you
Not gonna listen to what she says
Come on baby let’s run away

Let’s go!
Come on!
Let’s go!
Come on!
Oh yeah!
Let’s go!
Let’s run away!
Track Name: Supple Sinew
Oh supple sinew how you display yourself
And what you say…I hear and I hurt
Hide away these slattern thoughts when temptation’s near
Catch the bird you hunt in your claws…
The end becomes clearer

What’s going on here is exactly that
Who wouldn’t want to fill the shoes of the lucky one
It’s possible to know how this onion will peel
The running of blood, eruption of cells, the chemical spill
The sweet taste of poison

I don’t miss you like I should
Life ain’t bad but it sure ain’t good
When our time’s all withered away
Did you say what you had to say?
And did you lay who you had to lay?

Unsure expenses put nickels in jars
Waiting for trickle-down to water my yard
Someday the dam will break and where will we be?
Floating in the delta on our way out to sea

The crossed-out sand tracks, the trail led to fire bed
House down question basement dark and musty
A failed attempt to satisfy, be satisfied it’s obvious
Don’t cry or worry, you think too much about it

I don’t miss you like I should
Life ain’t bad but it sure ain’t good
When our time’s all withered away
Did you say what you had to say?

And did you lay who you had to lay?
Track Name: Alt Right Command Left
All that you type, all that you view
You better watch out, they’re looking at you
These algorithms, analyzing your pics
Rest assured, they’ll catch every click

If we succumb to the dull and the dumb,
the crushing blue thumb raised by idiots to the sky
like flags to god…

A storm is coming, so watch out world
The swine are after our freedom’s pearls
They’re doing wrong, our flag it starts to tear
I wish I’d close my eyes, cuz I’m so damn scared

Don’t read the news, it’s all so bad
So much to lose, it’s drivin me mad
Don’t want my child to grow up and see
The darker side of humanity

Alt Right Command Left to control you
and shift it all to their side
Safe space hides
return to fight
warfare’s call will meet us
all were babies once
but some of us still are
sowing pain
forgotten who we are
standing up and shouting out
is what it’s all about
Track Name: Bye Bye Blackstar
We miss you so and we want you to know
We’ll never forget the times we had
Oh no, don’t go
Oh no, don’t go

Bye Bye Blackstar
Your light shines from a place unknown
Maker of worlds, shaper of dreams
Whose presence can only be felt, not seen

Like a new a moon at night
We can no longer see your light
But we know that you’re there
And we know that you care

Let’s awaken from 10,000 years of sleeping
and finally build a world full of meaning
We need a home

Your voice echoes through our souls
Breaking bonds and healing holes
You were an ancient mystic, come back to kick it
Awaken the wisdom that this world’s been missing

It’s halfway between snowing and raining
It’s cold and it’s wet, but I’m not complaining
I open my eyes, look to the skies,
continue this lifelong training
Oh yeah, bring it on
Oh yeah, I can take it
Track Name: Awake from a Dream (I'll Always Remember)
Awake from a dream with your face in my mind
We've drifted apart but i remember the tide
We rode the crest of love's rocky waves
But like we knew it would, those waves had to break

Inspiration flows from what was back then
Suicide seaside and all of her friends
All of those songs your angel's voice sang
Flew right into my soul

I knew you could not be controlled
Even so, i wanted to have and to hold
But like playing catch with a sunbeam's smile
You slipped out of my grip, out of my time

And now your face appears in a fever-filled dream
Where i spilled the poor man's broth into a stream
My last forty dollars went to ease his pain
Though it meant I'd never see you again

I’ll always remember:

The paper, the color, the songs, the waves
The trees, the sunsets, the fire, the waves
