Die hard fans adored your hands They loved your throat and quote unquote "you" Hey, remember Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson really happened Delta Echo Alpha Delta, walking on the moon forever You are dead and buried, you are dead (Oh no) That's being revised! Even as we speak we're synthesizing blood and organs Synthesizing heart and soul Even Katy Perry knows you're dead (Oh no) Won't she be surprised! When we get your heart to start tomorrow When you see the chart tomorrow you'll be number one Bro, you look amazing Really put together It's like you haven't aged a day, oh It's like we know what we're doing or something You've been gone for way too long, like half a year An entire career for some Good luck getting into Heaven if you live past 27 Listen to the radiation put you back in circulation You are dead and buried, you are dead (Oh no) Oh, but you never died! Even as we speak we're synthesizing blood and organs Synthesizing heart and soul Ain't no cemetary you can't shed (Oh no) Ain't nowhere you can hide! Don't be frightened of us Soon enough you're gonna love us, just remember This is your last ride ever, forever Fill up your lungs, feel better Look, it's you, good as new New hands, new throat, new living tissue You earned this new purpose Lifetime achievement award Don't be nervous baby We put a billion eyes back on you From the grave to the stage You're a natural, babe!

I think it's time for you to know the awful truth The truth about me, and the truth about you 'Cause you're a brand new species Big cat, space Nazis, Robert Stack God damn it, gonna snap, Leonard Nimoy Call me back (Call me back) I try to call you every day I'm rehearsing what to say when the truth comes out (Of my very own mouth) I've been working on a unified theory If I make it through tonight everybody's gonna hear me out 'Cause I'm the right one On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone I'm the only one On your A.M., A.M. radio Oh, I'm crying now, authentic tears They flow out of me when I think about you 'Cause you're the only person in the world who'd understand 'Cause you're the only person in the world who'd understand the meaning of this Oh My God I try and I try and I try to make you listen to me I try to call you every day I'm rehearsing what to say when the truth comes out (Of my very own mouth) I've been working on a unified theory If I make it through tonight everybody's gonna hear me out 'Cause I'm the right one On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone I'm the only one, hey! On your A.M., A.M. radio Don't hang up yet, I'm not done I'm an expert, I'm the one The one who was right all along Better to be laughed at than wrong I'm an expert in my field UFOlogy, yes, it's all real Ancient aliens, it's all true I'm an expert just like you And like you, I'm a genius before my time Disbelieving, that's the real crime Pretty soon they'll discover me in the Super-Sargasso Sea I try to call you every day What can I say when the truth comes out?

Cabinet Man 04:22
The day they found me, I hadn't yet been played Inside my workshop behind the old arcade Electric desires had unraveled all my wires Now I'm in the box for safekeeping The news reporters reported that I died But all my organs were living on inside Circuit board to brain with two lungs collecting change One big human heart gently beeping You can't win me, I can't be beat I won't hurt you unless you cheat You can't see me behind the screen I'm half human and half machine Thank God for business, they let me take the floor I stood so proudly, like I was going to war Players soon appeared and I quickly was revered This must be what love would have felt like Such dedication, they came from miles away With eyes so piercing, they'd wait their turn to play In perfect patient lines because I was in their minds I could do whatever I felt like (Whatever I felt like) You can't win me, I can't be beat I won't hurt you unless you cheat You can't see me behind the screen I'm half human and half machine I'm happy for years and years And only eating the occasional maintenance man Only driving a few kids to madness Maybe they were predisposed to madness, who knows? I only want to have fun But now they're telling me my days here are done 'Cause there's a little tiny box they make in Japan And pretty soon it's gonna fit in your hand It's getting lonely, it's getting hard to breathe Ahe arcade's empty, I think it's Christmas Eve Someone's broken in, now they're painting on my skin Breaking me and taking my quarters Bashing in my face with a crowbar Kicking me and pushing me over Now they see my blood on their sneakers You can't win me, I can't be beat I won't hurt you unless you cheat You can't see me behind the screen I'm half human and half machine

No Eyed Girl 04:20
Oh, knowing what we know, knowing we don't know This is gonna change our world Feeling how I feel, I'll accept the unreal If you be my no-eyed girl from nowhere mankind can go There's too much light, blinding white Your matter tells mine to scatter It's alright, it's alright From the moment that we met I've been awake like I've never been awake in all my life If I spoke your language I could tell you how I feel But your language isn't real In every myth there's a little bit of truth But I cannot say a thing (I cannot say a thing) Without proof, oh no Knowing what we know, knowing we do not know This is gonna change our world I might go insane if I hear your full name If you be my no-eyed girl from nowhere mankind can go There's too much light, blinding white Emotions, human implosions It's alright, it's alright Right before the kiss I noticed something in the air Molecules existed when there should have been none there Chemical reactions with the surface of your skin Some will say my actions let the no-eyed people in And I'd do it all again, and I'd do it all again, and I'd do it all again

When He Died 04:33
When he died Turns out he left behind a mansion full of other people's skulls The odd thing is, they never found his own, when he died When he died He somehow left behind strange symbols on the floor beneath his corpse Investigators said the wood was scorched, when he died When he died they found so many scorpions inside his lungs When he died the statues of his missing children cried What was later found to be his blood When he died (On a dark and stormy night) They telephoned his wife (Who reacted with delight) But gradually her voice began to fade to nothing And the Laughing Record played The Laughing Record played When he died They found a message etched into his spine That said when he died an endless age of untold nightmares would be nigh And the blood would make the seas run red When he died (On a dark and stormy night) A nearby shed caught fire (It simply caught alight) And when they cleared the charred wood from the ground Inside they found a painting of a clown (A creepy painting of a clown) He'd painted it he was just a child But scrawled upon the back was exactly when he died When he died, when he died, when he died, when he died

Sweet Bod 04:10
Your body is so sweet now, baby, I'm saying trick or treat now You know I've got to have you, yeah, you sexy sweet cadaver All wrapped up like a mummy, I'll cover you in honey And wait a hundred years or so You know, you know it isn't sexual (It isn't sexual) Strictly confectional (Strictly confectional) Strictly medicinal (Strictly medicinal) If a little nontraditional I'm digging up your coffin and pouring out the contents Your sexy sweet solution is prime for distribution Sweet bod Your body's starting rumors of Mason jars of sweetness Whose satisfied consumers have often claimed to witness Some sexy shrinking tumors, a sweet return to fitness They're just a hundred bucks or so You know, you know it isn't sexual (It isn't sexual) Strictly professional (Strictly professional) Entrepreneurial (Entrepreneurial) Oh, and what a sweet memorial I'm digging up your coffin and pouring out the contents Good God, I'm glad to see you Won't you be my panacea? Sweet bod, sweet bod, oh, sweet bod, sweet bod, sweet bod

Extra clever earthbound spirit Ghost in the form of a mongoose And I have hands, and I have feet I'll never die, I am a freak Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall I know I might be small, but I am a freak Thou wilt never know what I am I am the fifth dimension and I will split the atom And if you see me you're paralyzed Pillar of salt, you're mummified Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall I know I might be small, but I am the eighth wonder And I was born 1852 And I was born in India And I shall haunt like the buggane With such weird noise and clanking chains Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall I know I might be small, but I am a freak I say "vanished" to underground Jim, let me go I watch like Hell And I have hands, and I have feet I'll never die, I am a freak Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall I know I might be small, but I am the eighth wonder Eighth wonder of the world You'll never get to see What in the name of God can I be?

My mind's this cave So dark, no moon, no stars No sound, just hearts and walls of art Strange things happen for no reason That's all I know My mind's this cave So dark, no moon, no stars, no stars No sound, just hearts and walls of art These creatures I've seen Some of them edible, some of them mean That's all I know I'm not like you You fly, you burn my eyes, my eyes You speak in my mind Your kind all died when you arrived I saw you making fire Strange things happen for no reason at all I can't help you You're not human, you're not animal My mind's this cave So dark, no moon, no stars, no stars No sound, just hearts and walls of art And you, you fly You burn my eyes You speak in my mind You seem surprised that I don't hear you

Cold and windy Dark and stormy Let me float your way Please don't ignore me What you girls really need's a soft, fuzzy man (An ambient man) A trick of the light to love you tonight You don't understand, there's nothing quite like a soft, fuzzy man Can't you see me? Why can't you see me? I'm all around, all cold and dreamy What you girls really need's a soft, fuzzy man (A wisp of smoke man) To waft over you and cloud up your view So show me your hands and wave them right through a soft, fuzzy man Although I have no arms to hold you in a human passion burns within me I need to feel like I exist So please baby please baby step into the mist Don't be nervous No, don't be nervous I'm not like other guys who have a surface What you girls really need's a soft, fuzzy man (An atmospheric man) A shimmering puff of indistinct love What's better than the vague embrace of a soft, fuzzy man? Who seeps through your thoughts Who makes you see spots Who blows through the air Who plays with your hair I know it sounds crazy, but once you go hazy, you'll understand I'm your soft, fuzzy man

Reaganomics 03:31
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the solution to our problem. Are you unhappy, girl, in this confusing world? Where everything you earn is getting left to burn? If it were up to me, then living would be free And I can give you that, and I can give you that They'll take your money into their greasy hands And spend your money (They do this to disrespect you) And take away your land (I know kung fu, I will save you) 'Cause you're worth saving, baby Deregulating, baby I'm Ronald Reagan, baby I'm Ronald Reagan, yeah I'll save you, honey, you'll never be alone I'll save the business (If you love me, say you love me) That you will someday own (They hate freedom, I'll defeat them) Not like in comics, baby With economics, baby With Reaganomics, baby Atomic bomb it, yeah Are you unhappy, girl, in this confusing world? Where everything you earn is getting left to burn? If it were up to me, then money would be free And I can give you that, and I can give you that If you just hold my hand (If you just hold my hand) If you just close your eyes (If you just close your eyes) If you get in my car (If you get in my car) I'll take you for a ride (I'll take you for a ride) With Reaganomics, baby With Reaganomics, baby With Reaganomics, baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah (With Reaganomics, with Reaganomics, with Reaganomics)

I want to meet potential architects all night I want to purchase urban real estate all night I want to study local zoning laws all night I want to calculate construction costs all night I have a vision of a man-made object I have the money, I have the means I have the strangest dreams I caught insomnia from looking at the moon I found a picture of a rectangle I drew I am an altogether different man by day I have the influence to send that man far away I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all) I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all) I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all) I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all) I have the money, I have the means I've been having the strangest dreams, baby

Over and over The pheromones, the overwhelming harmony Consuming the colony The Circle rules your life Chop, chop! Don't want to be late Lift up and carry your weight You've got no choice but to dance in a spiral of ants True bugs might laugh in your face Don't fret, you're leading the race Don't let the bastards step on your hands in a spiral of ants You can't remember where you came from (In a spiral of ants) You can't remember where you're going (In a spiral of ants) You can't remember knowing You are one ant Over, it's over The pheromones, the self-avoiding odyssey Consuming the colony The Circle rules your life Now, now! Don't run out of breath Don't feel surrounded by death, no Take the wheel, this could be your chance, in a spiral of ants False bugs, you'll soon be alone See how they drop like a stone You're free now forever to dance in a spiral of ants Now you remember where you came from (From a spiral of ants) Now you remember where you're going (To a spiral of ants) You've got to keep it flowing You are one ant (Over, over, over) Over and over The pheromones, the overwhelming harmony Consuming the colony Creating its own gravity Before we knew it we became a hurricane And the bugs who laughed got blown away As we proclaimed: The Circle rules your life
