Track Name: Neverending Freakshow
good morning boys and girls
and welcome to my freakshow
please form a single line
and keep your eyes turned low
be careful, what you see
belongs to infamy
it's taken quite some time to put this here for you
let's move along now so
there are some things to show
we'll dedicate your suffering to this neverending freakshow

on the left you'll find the natural world
or at least the smell of hunger
we've done our best to cage the beast
and humiliate the thunder
if you look closely enough
you'll see they are quite tame
they watch tv with the rest of you and cower from the rain
let's move along now so
there are more things to show
we'll dedicate your suffering to this neverending freakshow

on the right you'll find the race of gods
I'm sure you know the halos
the lot of them are playing dice
to negotiate their payloads
if you listen close enough
you'll hear they are quite lame
they bitch about most everything and it all remains the same
let's move along now so
there is one more to go
we'll dedicate your suffering to this neverending freakshow

and here at centre stage
we find the main attraction
that pomous brood of buffed babboons
who kill with every action
if your sense is sharp enough
you'll recognize your face
and see this tribe of imbecils is but the human race
now move along now so
but there is nowhere to go
you'll dedicate your suffering in this neverending freakshow
Track Name: roughshodclawhammered
I'm roughshod, clawhammered
four sheets to the wind
but I swear I'll find a way to win you back again

I'm steampowered, plague-riddled
burned down from the knees
but I swear I'll find a way to win you back again

An idea of perfection is something that can poison reality
and reality makes the idea of perfection hilarious
If you watch the most beautiful thing in the world,
soon enough you'll hear a toilet flush

I'm brain rattled nerves addled
sticking to the wall
but I know you need me more than alcohol

I'm driftwood crucified
leaking like a sieve
but I know you need me more than alcohol

All the angels sing some mighty fine singing
but all their songs are about naked women
If you wait here long enough, they'll all show up
they'll be looking for cheap cigars to smoke while watching tv.
Track Name: You Wanna
you wanna have my word
well my word it ain't worth nothin
not worth a scrap of paper
or a stone at the bottom of the sea
but listen to me

you wanna take my time
but my time it can't be taken
it won't do a damn thing for you
just roll away and go
yeah I'll tell you so

so why don't you
just find another dog
to steal his bones
and slap his ears

you wanna make me move
but you won't get me moving
I'll stay here til I rot
and there's nothing you can do
nothin I want you to

you want me to be a man
but that's just what I'm being
and one day I'm gonna die
maybe then you'll leave me alone
yeah, all alone

so why don't you
just find another dog
to steal his bones
and slap his ears
and why don't you
stop living in a fog
and see that I
just ain't worth your time?
Track Name: Carnivore
bite through
this grits your teeth
tasteless as light
but sweet as pity

smile pretty
they want you that way
fill the void
in somebody's vision

tear the flesh
from the bones
and roar
carnivore

scratch away
this hurts your skin
eases the mind
but sharp as sorrow

tomorrow
they'll take it from you
so raise your head
and pose for the camera

sink your teeth
and set your jaw
to the depth
of what you are
tear the flesh
from the bones
and roar
carnivore
Track Name: Sanitized
your mind is sanitized
that rusty spring has broken
you once believed in something more than bad tv

your life is cauterized
you used up your last token
you only have the sense that you're a tragedy

be a good boy now
keep things in their place
try to be a little less disturbing
put your pencils down
pass your papers up
try to find a place to hide your memory

think of all the cost
think of all the loss
how we've made the world a perfect bed for you
you must stand in line
you must stand in line
in line in line in line!

your soul is sanitized
but sleeping in the gutter
try to make the best of what we've left for you

your life is mesmerized
and ready to be eaten
you must agree that this is what you wanted

be a good boy now
and stay in your place
try to be a little less distracted
you must stand in line
you must stand in line
in line in line in line!
Track Name: Divisible
your god is like a windmill
but I am like a trick
the hand that does not guide you
will beat you with a stick

so swing around your miracles
and all will move aside
while you are watching fireworks
I'll burn away the sky

are we divisible?
call me invisible.
outside of knowing
where we are going?

your man is like a nightmare
but I am like the moon
the hand that does not starve you
will feed you with a spoon

so crack apart your prisons
there's nothing locked inside
while you perform your rituals
I'll drown them in the tide

are we divisible?
call me invisible
weeds in a garden
wanting a pardon
outside of knowing
where we are growing
are we divisible?
Call me invisible

run away
run away now
run down the road
or through through the field
away from here and everywhere
but leave behind your cruelty
Track Name: The Boy Who Shot the Dog
the little girl laughed
at the boy who shot the dog
but it was not funny
it was not funny

the old man cried
as the door closed in his face
and was he man enough
was he man enough

you believe
in acts of contrition
but I believe
there's a right
to shake your head and go

the young man watched
while the house was burning down
He couldn't look away
wouldn't turn away

the woman fell
when the man told her the news
and what's left now
will there be anything now

you believe
in pleas for absolution
but I believe
there's a right
to take your pain and go
Track Name: Righteous Bullshit!
I know that you've been sensing
every minute, every hour
that you live life like a bee
from flower to flower
and that it's not enough
to satisfy the thirst
another comes along that's just
as pretty as the first

And I know that what you wanted
was pleasure free of pain
but life is such a tricky bitch
it all ends up in vain
you'll take another shot
to satiate desire
but one more shot is just enough
to make you want another

and they lied
when they told you
that being good was really good enough
and they lied
when they told you
that being bad will get you in the end
the sad fact is
the remainder
is always greater
than what you take away

I know that you've been thinking
every minute, every day
of how you can get out of this
and not give much away
but weakness isn't virtue
indulgence isn't power
you'll get when they throw you out
for pissing in the flowers

While you're standing weeping
I'll tell you one more fable
there was a man who gave his food
to others at the table
I'm sure you think there's more
but I assure you there ain't
nothing's more preposterous than
sanctifying saints

for they lied
when they told you
that being good meant anything at all
and they lied
when they told you
that wickedness will lead you to the pit
the sad truth is
all those stories
have the ripened smell
of righteous bullshit
