Track Name: Do You Know??
do you know??
when will it happen??
(the fiery comet)

do you know??
who will still love you??
and who will bleed with you??
Track Name: Metropolis in Flames
catch my hair
it's been falling all night
terrorists call me
i never feel alright

take it out of your body
put it into mine
i think i'm falling in love
i think i saw you die

everybody wants to see metropolis in flames
everybody wants to know the day they're gonna die
everybody wants to see their body in the gutter
everybody wants to know the day they're gonna die

i don't care
whether or not your body's going to decay
i only care
whether or not you say "baby i love you too"

I'M TIRED OF DREAMING
OF METROPOLIS IN FLAMES

where do you think apocalypse comes from?

it's a thousand jaundiced eyeballs staring at a kitchen sink
thinking bout the money that they're never gonna get
thinking bout a spaceship
thinking bout a war
thinking bout metropolis in flames

i don't care
whether or not your body's going to decay
i only care
whether or not you say "baby i love you too"

I'M TIRED OF DREAMING
I'M TIRED OF MY PAIN
I'M TIRED OF DREAMING
OF METROPOLIS IN FLAMES

sometimes i'm running
and sometimes i'm still
rarely i'm sleeping
but it's never too unchill

do you got it?
i got it!
we can start a club!
let's get out of here, fucker
i see too much blood
Track Name: Cyborg
I saw a grapefruit ghost
rotting in the gutter
from a cartoon boat
rusty in the rudder
takes me halfway downtown
river on the sabertooth city
where you live only if you're gritty

i hear a dial tone where my heart should be
i hear a dial tone where my heart should be
information ghost with the digital roar
digital roar, digi-ro-ro-ro-roar

there's twenty guillotines on a yacht in the red sea
tell the government i'm starting up a new scene
fresher than the carpool that you took to high school
cherry lamborghini on a semolina terrortool
silver eyes on otto, he lives inside the grotto
ruby jewels bouncing on his '80 silverado
's got a gold-standard-model-wife
and a dirty life
sick of matter wants to turn into electric light

i'm taking up space
i'm taking up space
i'm taking up space
big hearted, understated, haters think i'm overrated but

where'd you get your facts?
motherfucker
you think that i'm just sitting down?
you think i'm tuckered out?
shit i go to work, i never go to sleep
i'm making beats every night when you grind your teeth

where'd you get your facts? motherfucker
you come into my house tell me what i gotta do?
i'm my own boss, i make 'em heads toss
MAN THE MAKER MAKE SO MUCH I’M MAN THE CYBORG

(i seek self, suckling degradation zones
vacant mind, escapist heart act like i never knew)

anodyne marriages
rocking in the backseat of horseless carriages bloodless, tongueless
loveless and perfect, i die every night
i'm numb and i don't feel human, no

i hear a dial tone where my heart should be
i hear a dial tone where my heart should be
i hear a dial tone where my heart should be
my teacher said that angels are a common fantasy but

where'd you get your facts?
motherfucker
you think that i'm just sitting down?
you think i'm counted out?
shit i go to work, i never go to sleep
i wrote a novel while you nerds were busy counting sheep

where'd you get your facts? motherfucker
well i'm the newest model
i run on empty bottles
i'm fast like currency, but not ethereal, yeah
I’M A METAL MAN, I’M MAN THE CYBORG

(when time is a number
and space is a thought apocalypse freaks run amok)
Track Name: I Want It All
i want to go where no one goes
i want to die where heaven lies
i want to kiss you you look so good
i want to love you just like i should

I WANT IT ALL

i'm on a mission, postpone decisions till i see jesus
burning desires on funeral pyres that spark my demons
you contaminate me, make my heart ugly
i spell out your nightmares in gasoline

I WANT IT ALL
Track Name: Isabel
where... where did you go?
dead... i feel so dead

you look good when you take me down
pouring blood on my evening gown
i always wish i was with somebody (never be lonely)

take my tooth and you burn my heart
make me feel so unerudite
i always wish i was with somebody (never be lonely)

so dumb in heaven i lie (ISABEL)
when i'm around you, i feel my body feel so weak (ISABEL)

flesh running gutter, i'm a ghost in the gutter
heart like a grapefruit, fearful, hirsute
i'm gonna die not knowing you
i got fire from the comet, i pull an intervention
christian motherfucker with a paralytic engine, oh
i'm gonna die right next to you

go, go, i'm so cold
yeah go, go, i'm so cold
yeah, never never never never never
yeah, armaggedon, yeah (lalalala)

go, go, i'm so sold
yeah go, go, i'm so sold
yeah, money money money money money
yeah, nine-eleven, yeah (lalalala)

warm bodies and a warm room (never be lonely!)
melted in memory (never be lonely!)

so dumb in heaven i lie (ISABEL)
when i'm around you, i feel my body float up to god (ISABEL)
life is so boring, i can't wait to be born anew (ISABEL)
worlds, worlds, burning, burning fire (ISABEL)
Track Name: Lucy Tiger
i infected your bedroom
it's a problem i'm not ready to fix
satan's crashing in my headroom
death is blowing out my speakers

LOVELY LUCY TIGER
LOOKING LIKE YOU'RE TIRED OF MY RESTLESSNESS

i collected your records
and i burned them in an electrical fire
you never listened to me anyway
'cause i was formless and you were totally perfect

LOVELY LUCY TIGER
LOOKING LIKE YOU'RE TIRED OF MY RESTLESSNESS

you'd leave me at the altar
you'd leave me at the altar, i know

air conditioning and murder
dust gets everywhere when you're not around
but when you're here i get so angry
everybody's better at it than me

LOVELY LUCY TIGER
LOOKING LIKE YOU'RE TIRED OF MY RESTLESSNESS
Track Name: Just Like Me
i thought you never saw combat
i thought you were happy with things
i thought you could bridge the gap
i thought you were different

TURNS OUT YOU'RE JUST LIKE ME

figured out in your mirror
your penetrating gaze
i feel better as an object
i feel better as unspeakable malaise

OH NO, YOU'RE JUST LIKE ME

MAKES ME SO LONELY
TO KNOW YOU'RE JUST LIKE ME

maybe when the bombs hit, you'll be mine!
when things look different, we'll be fine!
not so scared, when blood is everywhere
we'll build a bunker and light some candles in it

why does the world have to end for you to love me?
why do my eyes look past your ready body?

a face that looks like gravy staring at you straight
making everybody feel so uncomfortable
i don't give a shit, i'm radioactive
what's the problem? i'm sexually active
feeling like a million dollars
got a heart of gold tooth
dripping out my insides, feeling kinda ugly
hand like a mirror, i'm giving up the ghost

OH YEAH YOU'RE JUST LIKE ME
Track Name: Multinational Corporation
coagulated menace
i'm in debt to the dentist
