    The Handshake

    every time you shake someone's hand and it feels like your best friend,
    could it be that it's only superficiality?,
    without regard to well-being, without an inkling of compromise,
    handshakes are nothing but a subtle "**** you",
    contracts determine the best friendships

    this is the way of the modern world, everyone's vying for patronage,
    this is the way of the modern world, and something has gotta give

    every time you shake someone's hand,
    and you share neither color or creed,
    you gotta overcome the obstacles of history,
    there is restrained passion, mistrust, and bigotry

    and these have created the new foundations of society,
    there's no harmony just class and race

    this is the way of the modern world,
    everyone's fighting for dominance,
    this is the way of the modern world,
    and something has gotta give

    now I believe in unity, and I am willing to compromise,
    but I'm not gonna lie or sell my soul

    every time you shake someone's hand,
    it determines where you stand,
    and if you won't uphold your side then it's better to
    fend for yourself, and shun the handshake,
    someone's gotta give

    Better Off Dead

    I'm sorry about the sun,
    how could I know that you'd burn?,
    and I'm sorry about the moon,
    how could I know that you'd disapproved,
    I'll never make the same mistake,
    the next time I create the universe
    I'll make sure we communicate at length
    but until then . . . better off dead,
    a smile on the lips and a hole in the head,
    better off dead, yeah better than this,
    better off dead, yeah better than this,
    take it away cuz there's nothing to miss
    I'm sorry about the world,
    how could I know you'd take it so bad?,
    and I'll never make the same mistake,
    the next time I create the universe
    I'll make sure you participate
    But until then . . .
    Better off dead, yeah better off dead,
    why don't you try pushing daisies instead
    and I'll never make the same mistake,
    the next time I create the universe
    I'll make sure we communicate, just in case.

    Infected

    Now here I go,
    Hope I don't break down,
    I won't take anything, I don't need anything,
    Don't want to exist, I can't persist,
    Please stop before I do it again,
    Just talk about nothing, let's talk about nothing,
    Let's talk about no one, please talk about no one, someone, anyone

    You and me have a disease,
    You affect me, you infect me,
    I'm afflicted, you're addicted,
    You and me, you and me

    I'm on the edge,
    Get against the wall,
    I'm so distracted,
    I love to strike you,
    Here's my confession,
    You learned your lesson,
    Stop me before I do it again

    You're clear - as a heavy lead curtain want to drill you - like an ocean,
    We can work it out, I've been running out, now I'm running out

    Don't be mad about it baby,
    You and me, you and me,
    I want to tie you, crucify you,
    Kneel before you, revile your body,
    You and me, we're made in heaven,
    I want to take you, I want to break you,
    Supplicate you, with thorny roses,
    I want to bathe you in holy water I want to kill you,
    Upon the alter, you and me, you and me

    Television

    television, television, television, television

    oh yeah! I want to bask in your golden light,
    submerge in electric waves,
    I need my connection to the world outside

    the world outside is buzzing like an angry wasp in summer,
    the candidates are running, and soon the son of God is coming,
    crackle mental convolutions tune in to the revolution,
    whereby everyone's included so we'll never have to be alone

    every atom of my body, blood and sinew, bone and fibre,
    I can't distil you from my blood,
    you're a hungry germ inside of me,
    you're my lover, you're my heroine,
    my conscience and my voice,
    and I know that I have learned to let you in I
    will lever have to be alone

    I'd take after my mother but she's from a different generation,
    I prefer my big brother he's so gentle and understanding,
    and I learn what I can from him by the television light,
    so that when I'm all alone I know everything's gonna be alright

    Individual

    individuals run for cover,
    for the multitudes of thoughtless clones have reached a critical mass,
    individuals hide in fear, under cover,
    sheltered by the wafer thin veil of intelligence

    individuals, nowhere to be seen

    urbana is oozing like a bloated carcass,
    with maggots cooking in the desert heat,
    oozing, with progeny writhing and desperate
    for input from someone more determined

    congregating in invisible circles,
    half apart and half apart,
    all too aware of the insignificance,
    pushing on with soul and heart

    individuals don't pray for forgiveness,
    when pinned up against the wall under siege of persecution,
    individuals command exception,
    and accept dichotomy,
    maybe you can't choose anymore

    procreation without gain or purpose,
    languid wills and torped minds,
    catapulted ever faster by the arrow of time

    Hooray For Me...

    I can see my teenage father standing straight on a desolate corner,
    in the shadow of tentacled towers by the red light of America,
    I imagine how his mother felt when she heard that her husband was dying,
    and that underground heroes of the tarmac shooting smack were blowing up worlds

    and Damned out loud,
    he, can you tell me how does it feel?

    yeah, tell me, can you imagine, for a second,
    doing anything that you don't have to?
    well that's what I'm accustomed to so hooray for me

    when I slept with stony faces on the riverbank,
    my angeldevil reveller shook me desperately in dying,
    I don't exactly want to apologize for anything, and now
    we're all mad and tangled in secret rooms with roman candles,
    on an endless graveyard train

    yeah, tell me, can you imagine, for a second, doing
    anything just 'cuz you want to?
    well, that's just what I do so hooray for me

    yeah, I was dreaming through the "howzlife", yawning,
    car black, when she told me "mad and meaningless as ever..",
    and a song came on my radio like a cemetery rhyme,
    for a million crying corpses in their tragedy of respectable existence

    oh, yeah, I'm not respectable, and never sensible,
    I've been incredible so damned irascible
    and I like the things I do so hooray for me

    Slumber

    So, you're feeling unimportant,
    'Cuz you've got nothing to say.
    And your live is just a ramble
    No one understand you anyway

    Well, I got a piece of news son,
    That might make you change your mind
    Your life is historically meaningfull
    And spans a significant time

    Slumber will come soon
    And you are helping to put it to sleep
    Side by side we do our share
    Faithfully assuring that
    Slumber will come soon.

    Well, now do you feel a little better
    Lift up your head and walk away
    Knowing we're all in this togeter
    For such a short time anyway

    There is just no time to parade around
    Sulking, i would rather laugh than cry
    The rich, the poor, the strong, the weak
    We share this place together
    And we pitch into help it die

    I'm not too good at giving morals
    And I don't fear the consequence
    If life makes you scred and bitter
    At least it's not for very long

    Slumber will come soon.

    Marked

    if I'm a monster,
    I am a willing one,
    this roller coaster ride is an enticing one,
    on the tip of a continuum flowing wavelike
    through disorder carry me like a vessel to water

    everything you see leaves a mark on your soul,
    everything you feel leaves a mark on your soul,
    everything you touch leaves a mark on your soul,
    everything you make leaves a mark on your soul

    if I can touch it,
    I can destroy it,
    if it's imaginable to some degree,
    I can become it,
    like a hungry turning vortex that just flickers to existence,
    consuming bits and pieces until I'm finally extinguished

    everyone you see leaves a mark on your soul,
    everyone you bare leaves a mark on your soul,
    everyone you touch leaves a mark on your soul,
    everyone you love leaves a mark on your soul

    everything you take leaves a mark on your soul,
    everything you give leaves a mark on your soul,
    and all the fear and loneliness that's impossible to control,
    and every tear you cry leaves a mark on your soul

    Inner Logic

    automatons with business suits clinging black boxes,
    sequestering the blueprints of daily life
    contented, free of care, they rejoice in morning ritual
    as they file like drone ant colonies to their office in the sky

    I don't ask questions, don't promote demonstrations,
    don't look for new consensus, don't stray from constitution
    if I pierce the complexity I won't find salvation
    just the bald and over truth
    of the evil and deception

    there is an inner logic,
    and we're taught to stay far from it
    it is simple and elegant,
    but it's cruel and antithetic
    and there's no effort to reveal it

    graduated mentors stroll in marbled brick porticos
    in sagacious dialog they despise their average ways
    displaying pomp and discipline, they mold their institution
    where they practice exclusion on the masses every day

    decorated warriors drill harmless kids on pavement
    simulating tyranny under red alert
    protecting the opulent and staging moral standard
    they expect redemption of character and self-growth

    (no equality, no opportunity,
    no tolerance for the progressive alternative...)

    What It Is

    there's a purpose, there's a goal,
    there's a virtuos, and immoral,
    there's a reason for all of this,
    and I don't know what it is

    I am one, and plural too,
    I accept them but they exclude,
    I could make sense of all of this,
    but I don't know what it is

    the seeds of inspiration never germinated in my mind,
    the beacon of awakening is somewhere that I can't find, so
    I don't know what it is

    there's a beginning, and there's an end,
    there's a climax, some would contend,
    there's a way to signify this,
    but I don't know what it is
