about

Recorded in an abandoned school building, a totally not abandoned school building, a motel room, and the bass player's parents house. A race against time that culminated in a rejection of the past and voracious excitement for the future.

They lied.
Everything they told you about who you are and how you need to live your life was a lie.

Lyrics:

Fix Up, Look Sharp, Make the Change-

Straight Ahead
Straight to Shamballah

Woke Up in a bed made of shade
Cut my way out with the knife you plunged
between my ruptured discs
(My aim will be much better than yours)

Break away
Look towards the sun till it burns your eyes
It's the only thing you need to live your life
We can break this mold and crawl out
and try and find a golden city

I will run straight into the wave of mutilation
and feel the skin crawl off my bones.


The Day the Soul Man Died-

The Bravest Man has died today
The Soul Man is gone
He left behind a legacy
of poets who sing songs

The Bravest Man has died today
The Soul Man is gone

The hearts of fans are broken
We sing his songs in tears
The voice is dead and gone
but echoes last forever

The Bravest Man has died today
The Soul Man is gone


Anger is a Gift-

Death to those without
ideals and conviction
Spineless automatons
Adroit frauds

March to the sound of grinding bones

Take pride in your passion
and make it yours
Let it be known
We're on the outside

And that's exactly where we want to be


Broken Bird Writhing on the Ground-

I found you on the ground
With broken wings
Tearing off your own feathers
Glassy eyed and drunk

I tried to lift you up
with my broken hands
but i failed and dropped you
on a bed of glass

These are the times I have with you.
These are the times when I love you most
These are the times when I fail you
These are the times when you fail me

(With your sex on my breath, you kiss me
But I don't kiss you back)
