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?

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

Gaslight 03:39
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

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

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

The Dilemma 07:14
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!

Supple Sinew 04:02
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?

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
9.
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
10.
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
