Track Name: We Fiddle, You Burn
You're rowing where there's no ocean
You're typing where there's no gold
No one cares about your message
When you're such an asshole

Schizo gets paid by word count
Paranoid who sees plots everywhere
I can tell you no one's impressed
By your conspiracy- a cross hair

You're rowing where there's no ocean
You're typing where there's no gold
No one cares about your message
When you're such an asshole

Yeah, it must be lonely in your basement
Yeah, it must be lonely not to have any friends
But you're not turning any eyes
You're not justifying ends

You get up on that cross and you never get down
All logic is lost without making a sound
And it must feel great, yeah to always be right
With mountains of research keeping you up all night
You get up on that cross and you never get down
All logic is lost without making a sound
But saving the world, yeah it's not our concern
I got news for you, clock
We fiddle, you burn

Yeah, it must be lonely in your basement
Yeah, it must be lonely not to have any friends
But you're not turning any eyes
You're not justifying ends

You get up on that cross and you never get down
All logic is lost without making a sound
And it must feel great, yeah to always be right
With mountains of research keeping you up all night
You get up on that cross and you never get down
All logic is lost without making a sound
But saving the world, yeah it's not our concern
I got news for you, clock
We fiddle, you burn

WE
FIDDLE
YOU
BURN!
Track Name: X-13D
Avert your gaze from Kenosha
You have no use for these
The troops are storming the castle
To pollute the wine and cheese
They've found a back door in thru
The service industry
Wisconsin isn't ready
For the X-13D

Avert your gaze from Kenosha
You have no use for these
The troops are storming the castle
To pollute the wine and cheese
I've got a feeling in my head that
I ate something bad for me
I feel a wave of paranoia
From the X-13D

I've got a conscience and into my head it screams
It knows my judgment has been miscalculating
It knows into my ear the devil plans to sing (oh-oh)
It knows that to suggestion I'm open and willing (oh-oh)

Avert your gaze from Kenosha
You have no use for these
The troops are storming the castle
To pollute the wine and cheese

I've got a feeling in my head that
I ate something bad for me
I feel a wave of paranoia
From the X-13D
They've found a back door in thru
The service industry
Wisconsin isn't ready
For the X-13D

I've got a conscience and into my head it screams
It knows my judgment has been miscalculating
It knows into my ear the devil plans to sing (oh-oh)
It knows that to suggestion I'm open and willing (oh-oh)

I took the Paxil for awhile
I have no memory of that
I took the X-13 and smiled (They've gone and stormed the castle)
Their orders buzzing like a gnat (They've gone and stormed the castle)

Better living through chemistry
Better living through ear worms
Better living through a combination
Of altered brain waves and drugs
Track Name: Minotaur Documentation
All hands laying low
I got the feeling that this is all for show
I know were getting through, but I hate to tippy toe

Bull eyes and normal snouts
I got the feeling this will all come down
So!

Keep your wits and pray to the sun god
It's not like we're some profiteer
Hide the sheets that lead next gig
And make sure your story's clear

All hands laying low
I got the feeling that this is all for show
I know were getting through, but I hate to tippy toe

You know what's going down
But mino's wearing a crown
So!

Keep your wits and pray to the sun god
It's not like we're some profiteer
Hide the sheets that lead next gig
And make sure your story's clear

Do you have your documentation?
Do you have your papers in line?
I see you get that itch in your eyeball
When it comes to inspection time
Do you have your documentation?
Do you have your papers in line?
A minotaur can't be too sure
When dealing with the boarder slime

Keep your wits and pray to the sun god
It's not like we're some profiteer
Hide the sheets that lead next gig
And make sure your story's clear

Do you have your documentation?
Do you have your papers in line?
I see you get that itch in your eyeball
When it comes to inspection time
Do you have your documentation?
Do you have your papers in line?
A minotaur can't be too sure
When dealing with the boarder slime
Track Name: Spy in the House of Fuck
No time for slow reaction
No place for slow attraction
This takes my full attention
No time for slow reaction
No place for slow attraction
This takes my full attention

I am determined to remain
Loud in the forefront of your mind
I wanna be what you desire

No time for slow reaction
No place for slow attraction
This takes my full attention

The world is ending everyday
Vortex contained by science's weight
Let's get it on 'til it's too late

Late at night
My thoughts sing
Feels like the atomic weight of everything
In my heart
In my head
In my hands

We fight fire (we fight fire)
We melt glass (we fight fire)
We fuse the atoms
We fuse the atoms
Track Name: Arson, You Let Me Down
I'm gonna tell ya what I know
The ladies come and go
But the ebb and the flow
It's a shame and a drag
A doe vs. a stag
It's a shame and a drag
It's a bummer of a scheme
But the roaches and the rats
Were less effective than they seemed
It's a shame and a drag
Shame and a drag
Shame and a drag

When you set the fire (You set the fire, you set the fire)
You were a star
In your mind
A hero to the cause
Out of time
And outside the laws
Sabotage
Shoulda gave us pause

I'm gonna tell ya what I know
The ladies come and go
But the ebb and the flow
It's a shame and a drag
A doe vs. a stag
It's a shame and a drag
It's a bummer of a scheme
But the roaches and the rats
Were less effective than they seemed
It's a shame and a drag
Shame and a drag
Shame and a drag

When they took you in (they took you in, they took you in)
I washed my hands
Of your mind
Your manifestos and plans
Undefined
But still acted upon
Our king resigned
Our enemies have won

(You let me down, you let me down)
You said you kicked the matches
(You let me down, you let me down)
Authority dispatches
(You let me down, you let me down)
My sympathy detaches
My arsonist, you let me down

It's a shame and a drag, a shame and a drag, a shame and a drag, a shame and a drag...

(You let me down, you let me down)
You said you kicked the matches
(You let me down, you let me down)
Authority dispatches
(You let me down, you let me down)
My sympathy detaches
My arsonist, you let me down

One, two, three, four
Track Name: Somebody Take the Damn Money
He growls into the mic, he glares into the lens
He’s been pushed to the breaking point, and here’s where it’ll end
He’s got a briefcase full of cash for anyone who’ll act
On an offer to carry out his unsanctioned attack

Somebody take the damn
Somebody take the damn
Take the damn money
Take the damn money
It’s right here for you
Any limb will do
Take the damn money
Take the damn money

The names upon his list, the devil’s entourage
Spat through the titleholder’s gravel-lipped barrage
The former champions, the demons from the East
He pleads for anyone to cut out his disease

“You are the champion, you took the belt from me
You’re the man, you can do it, come and get it please”

Somebody take the damn
Somebody take the damn
Take the damn money
Take the damn money
It’s right here for you
Any limb will do
Take the damn money
Take the damn money
Track Name: Permanent Sleeperhold
The arm drops once, the arm drops twice
I see a bright future as the arm drops thrice
Pop the crowd and they come alive
Seventy-eight? No, I'm twenty-five
The arms drops once, the arm drops twice
Pull me away as he turns to ice
This domestic call has gone awry
Where are we and who am I?

Your ordinance
Is meaningless
I'm permanent
And dangerous

One two three, you're not my family
And I don't see how this applies
One two three, you can't imprison me
Shoot me full of Clozapine

Your ordinance
Is meaningless
I'm permanent
And dangerous

It's cinched, you're cold
No escape from this sleeperhold
It's cinched, you're cold
No escape from this sleeperhold

Your ordinance
Is meaningless
I'm permanent
And dangerous

He's not getting up
Ring the bell
