Track Name: Post Pathic Profiteers w/ DJ Abilities
We’re in the business of being bad
Bad at understanding
And business is good
The market requires
No soul researching
Patterns of a populace cherry picked
By window shopping
Desperate displays
Of a normal nobody knows
Yet everyone expects to own.

Give us your wired, your bored befuddled asses
Staring at TV’s
We’ll color code debt they don’t have yet
Buy em in black, sell em in red
Atomize the nuclear family
Itemize the cost of conception
Insure brains against bodies
Put pills in your bottles and on your plates
Grow more grains than our bellies can hold
The starved for attention scream for scraps
When the yes men start telling you “no”
The pyramids were dreams til the schemes collapsed.

We’re in the business of being bad
Bad at understanding
And business is good
The market requires
No soul researching
Patterns of a populace cherry picked
By window shopping
Desperate displays
Of a normal nobody knows
Yet everyone expects to own.

We walk a mile in the shoes of urban youth
Then sell fear in the form of fast food
We put your head on our shoulders and say,
“There, there… by the way, the monsters are real.”
We burn books about how to build bridges
Then let the fire extinguish foundations
We build cages and call them schools
Then funnel all the rats into bigger cages
We killed hemp and electrics cars
We sell planets and sex with stars
We only fight to collect the scars
We didn’t think it would get this far.

We’re in the business of being bad
Bad at understanding
And thanks to your brand loyalty
You know, business is good
The market requires
No soul researching
Patterns of a populace cherry picked
By window shopping
Desperate displays
Of a normal nobody knows
Yet everyone expects to own
We feel for you.

Like a hand which was full of figs
Then bitten by upright pigs
Like a limb which was lost at sea
While fishing for compliments
Like the empathy you tried to grasp
But couldn’t hold without dropping cash
Like the pedestals where you place
Heroes to watch em fall from grace
Like the prayers you pray, like the flags you wave
Like the wars you wage because your god is gay
Post pathic profiteers.
Track Name: Cruel Fuel
I did my best, now let me go
I turned my pain into a plus
Then put on quite the show
And made it real for all of us
If there's a god, please let me know
This cruel is fuel enough
For being high on what's below
My will will die of rust.

I don't trust so I don't tread
I swim through guilt full steam ahead
My machine is never clean
Fueled by the cruel in what I've heard and seen
Close your mouth, and then your eyes
Take off your skin, bury your bones
My mind is closed, my heart’s a grave
The ghosts of gravitational pull and unemotional push.

You've got to accept that fear can prevent you from ever having moments of happiness
cruelfuel!
Only then can you make the conscious choice to tell the fear you're not happy with…

A cheap life full of avarice
A peace pipe for the pacifist
Delight in the sadness since
The immature machines are fueled by the same cruel
Sleep tight in the scattered mist
Speak right with haphazard lips
Real life wanna act as is if
The immature machines are fueled by the same cruel fuel!

Another night, I can’t fall asleep
Another day, I can’t wake up
Another life, I don’t wanna die
Another death, I don’t wanna live.
Track Name: Becomes A Ghost
Ghosts
chase
You
chase
Dragon
And becomes a ghost, like
This is the best I can do
With what I wish didn’t happen
Addiction, adaption
Addition, subtraction.

Like, the ghosts chase you
So you chase the dragon
While the dragon chases its tail
And becomes a ghost, like…
Must be all that white privilege
Must be a I’m a man in a man’s world
Must be my parents are still together
Must be my graduate education
Must be any advantage that you could assume
Without knowing of the hells that I’ve been through
And sure, they’re now in my head
But there’s no worse place for hell to be
And you agree
I can see with the facial expression
Recognition software that’s embedded in my coping skills
You as well have a pain so internalized
Putting it in words just intensifies the loneliness
Ironic, relatives can’t relate
To the chalk outlines that they’ve sketched on your slate
And friends have agendas of their own
So no matter how surrounded, you always feel alone, like…

The ghosts chase you
So you chase the dragon
While the dragon chases its tail
And becomes a ghost, like…

This is the best I can do
With what I wish didn’t happen
Addiction, adaption
Addition, subtraction.

Like, I gotta get yelled at for something
Gotta get left with nothing but walls
Gotta get gassed, believe that I’m perfect
Gotta get my imperfections exploited
Gotta get my dose of cortisol
Absorb it all, then treat the world like a court of law
Before the fall, there’s blame: people need saviors
Now everyone’s addicted to shame seeking behaviors
Temper tantrums, road rage, and button pushing
Bound by brains to bash against boundaries
Serotonin isn’t up there with oxygen
It’s down here for when opportunity knocks again
Locked within a 12 step 2 step
Who step? You step, I step off of the wagon
Living for the now just ruined me for later
Can’t threaten me with death: you’d be doing me a favor.

Like, the ghosts chase us
So we chase the dragon
While the dragon chases its tail
And becomes a ghost, like…
Track Name: Human Farm
I want to see that smile of yours
Two legs bad, let’s get down on all fours
We are animals
Who learned to keep score.

We were both holding on to our fear
Cause it’s the only way we knew we were here
Keeping it near just to appear
Like we’re not alone.

We were as honest as we could have been
And I doubt much has changed since then
I’d say hello, but my control
Is wearing thin.

There is love, then there is lust
Chemicals combine, then they combust
Without trust, it is just
An inhuman game.

You see, narcissists shouldn’t have kids
The whole world’s gone to shit cause they did
We built a grid, so now we all live
On a human farm.

I want to see that smile of yours
Two legs bad, let’s get down on all fours
We are animals
Who learned to keep score.

Keep trying that.
