Concentration Lyrics

Perfect Tan (Bikini Atoll) 

Susie - every alchemical fuck's a Massacio exchange 
sex for desire 
desire for obscenity 
and ultimately desire for pain 
and I love you 
and I hate you 
I remember the time 
that I mind raped you 
never say repression 
unless you're ready to mean it, baby 
candy cane sunrise refracted in your eyes 
candy cane sunrise refracted in your eyes 
through the valley of death with sea air 
flowers on your breath 
and in your hair 

Somebody's sugar daddy 
(hand in hand with a perfect tan) 

Susie - every alchemical fuck's a Masachio exchange 
sex for desire 
desire for obscenity 
and ultimately desire for pain 
and I love you 
and I hate you 
I remember the time I mind raped you 

Somebody's sugar daddy 
(hand in hand a perfect tan) 

You know you get so alone 
where the hell is that promise 
where the hell is my world 
you know you get so alone 
like snakes detecting infrared 
exuded by some juicy prey 
slip the girl a little dust 
it makes 'em more receptive 
feel the serpent twisting up the spine 

Somebody's Sugardaddy 
(hand in hand a perfect tan) 

Butterfly Wings 

You can't place faith in material things 
material things will fail you 
a hurricane triggered by a butterfly's wings 
your conspirators betray you 

Don't place faith in human beings 
human beings are unreliable things 
don't place faith in human beings 
human beings or butterfly's wings 

You can't place faith in a new regime 
that fascist faith will kill you 
a hurricane triggered by a butterfly's wings 
your conspirators betray you 

don't place faith in human beings 
human beings are unreliable things 
don't place faith in human beings 
human beings or butterfly wings 

there's something burning 
deep inside I know 
there's something 
inside this hole 

(tonight when i chase the dragon - 
By their fruits you shall know them) 

Don't place faith 
Don't place faith 
When I decide to live in the mind 
the heart dies 
mother superior in the sky 
the heart dies 
the heart dies 

Don't place faith in human beings 
human beings are unreliable things 
don't place faith in human beings 
human beings or butterfly wings 

Lilith/Eve 

I'm talking darkest night 
a shoddy simulation 
of paradise in leopard tights 
there's a sinking fascination 
with the neon light 
and inside inside it's war all the time 
with the budding blonde hookers 
and their decadent art 
desire's a violent jackhammer of the heart 
when the world descends into helter skelter 
and the girls crawl in for shelter 

Lilith/Eve I'm looking for something 
come together over me 
I don't know what I want 
a wife or a lover 
I'm looking for somthing inbetween 

I'm talking blood on grass 
an overwrought suburbanite heart attack 
and paint it all black 
because the end is accelerating back to the beginning 
and everybody's falling in line 
with the balding blind hustlers in their heroin hovels 
giving dollar sucks inside continentals 
with the radios blaring out helter skelter 
and the creatures crawl in for shelter 

Lilith/Eve I'm looking for something 
come together over me 
I don't know what i want 
a knife or a lover 
come together over me 


Albert Speer

We have faced despair 
and found a river there 
we have faced despair 
and found a river there 
we have sucked the fruit of disease 
and found that it tasted sweet 
like meat gone bad 

sleep warmly under columns of light 
sleep warmly under columns of light 
sleep warmly under columns of light 
sleep with the fishes tonight 

all alone in this recluse car 
became afraid of what we are 
and what we might not be 
in the land of the free 

land of the free 
land of the free 
land of the free 
land of the free 

smell the ripe overripe budding America 
a sweetfaced straightlaced pornographic actress 
that's her draw - 
no one can believe she'd appear in this smut 
her face smiling perfect through innocent teeth 
unaware of the debauchery beneath 
smiling innocent through perfect teeth 
unaware of the wolves running 
wild in her streets 
in the land of the free 

land of the free 
land of the free 
land of the free 

get em up get em 
down on their knees 
all praise to Allah 
who provides what we need 
a Swiss precision suicide machine 
Jesus Christ 
Soul on Ice 
sleep with the mother fuckin 
fishes tonight 

Limiter

As sure as prisons are the models for the city 
I let my mind and my body imprison me 
and now a Versaille has risen up inside 
and i live in fear of the glide 
in fear of the glide 
and if the doors of perception were finally cleansed 
I could see your face again 
and my love for the world would be wild and pure 
if not for this goddamn limiter 
I pushed my limits to the sickening heights 
and I can feel my heartbeat pounding on the back of my eyes 
the drip of the faucet 
and the warmth of your thighs 
and the limiter - 
still blinded by the candlelight 

the rubies and the pearls of the lovesick eye 
the martyr's moans and the lover's sighs 
your legs so sheer in the UV light 
and the limiter - 
still blinded by the candlelight 

as sure as prisons are the models for the city 
I nurture my need for oil and electricity 
the bigger the need gets the more that 
the people want a piece of it 
and if the doors of perception were finally cleansed 
I could take my place again 
and my love for the world would be wild and pure 
if not for this goddamn limiter 
I pushed my limits to the sickening heights 
and I can feel my heartbeat pounding on the back of my eyes 
the drip of the faucet 
and the warmth of your thighs 
and the limiter - 
still blinded by the candlelight 

the rubies and the pearls of the lovesick eye 
the martyr's moans and the lover's sighs 
your legs so sheer in the UV light 
and the limiter - 
still blinded by the candlelight 
Delight - 
I could see you there 
and Delight - 
I want to see you in me everywhere 
as sure as prisons are the models for the cities 
I let my mind and my body imprison me 
I pushed my limits to the sickening heights 
and I can feel my heartbeat's pressure on the back of my eyes 
the drip of the faucet 
and the warmth of your thighs 
and the limiter - 
still blinded by the candlelight 

If I should Explode (Into Gasping Mary)

Coffee cup 
Mabou Mines 
shooting up the power lines 
I don't know what's on my mind 
dreaming of a simpler time 

and if I should explode into gasping Mary 
please take me home to where the cross is rose 

coffee cup 
an open mind 
the weathermen are flying blind 
you seem to me the bleeding kind 
just dreaming of a simpler time 

if I should explode into gasping Mary 
please take me home to where the cross is rose 


Shake

Shake like the newborn sleep 
shake like the fire in me 
I lost my mind 
shake on a handshake deal 
sit back and watch them steal 
I lost my mind 
automatically triggered in times of danger 
the newborn serpent speaks 
lost my lost my mind 

Shake 'em down to where the fire of hell surrounds 
and we've destroyed the underground 
because we're trying to find that sound 
Shake like the junkie sleeps 
shake like the fire in me 
I lost my mind 
I got me a handshake deal 
I bend down and I learn to kneel 
I lost my mind 

Shake em down to where the fire surrounds 
and we've destroyed the underground 
because we're looking to find that sound 

America in overdrive 
America O.D. 
America never fucking meant that much to me 
with its handshake massacre of porn queen dreams 
meet the man that feeds the fire that fuels the salt machine 

Cheap

A skirt here is cheaper 
than anywhere on the planet 
cheaper than in Liberia 
where you gotta pay to get the blood out 
Cheap - 
together in real time 
my television and my subconcious mind 

this is the third world - 
make it cheap and ugly 
make it dirty, make it rust 
then hit 'em when they're ready 
send me spinning into acts 
that look like sex 
smell like sex 
feel like sex 
more real than sex 
more real than love 

its what you say by what you buy into 
its what you say by what you buy into 
its what you say by what you buy into 
that obsesses me 
that turns me on 
that makes me cheap 
that fills me up 

Cheap - 
vibrations in my jaw 
the attention span of a pop song 
freakshow full of freakshow cunning 
the worst crimes 
involve love or money 
the worst crimes 
involve love or money 
love or money 
that's why I'm cheap - 
killed in my sleep 

its what you say by what you buy into 
its what you say by what you buy into 
its what you say by what you buy into 
that interests me 
that turns me on 
that makes me cheap 
that fills me up 

Spectral influence of girls over tides 
its in the way that you use your eyes 
its in the way that your eyes talk to me 
its what you say by what you buy into, baby 
its what you say by what you buy 
that obsesses me 

Acceleration

When I feel like i'm about out of hell 
I feel my cage is shrinking 
I can see the light from a prison cell 
I can feel the world weeping 
understand me 
understand me 

Release - Acceleration 

when I feel like I'm about out of hell 
I can feel my cage shrinking 
I see the light in the cancer cell 
I can feel the world weeping 
understand me 
understand me 
White light inside of me 
acceleration all around 
till it don't seem 
like I'm moving at all 
till it don't seem 
like I'm moving at all 
got caught raping an angel 
got caught stealing 
fire from the sky 
got caught raping an angel 
caught, released and I cry 
Release - Acceleration 
Into the arm 
the feelings are 
into the arm 
the feelings are 
down 


Ancestor Cult

Let's take an ambulance ride 
to the place where 
amnesia fills our eyes 
suck in that summer sister 
the blood was like a river flowing 
the earring dangles from the point of entry 
to the wicked root of thickening gravity 
and I am connected to the people ahead of me 
by a tangled web of blood and entropy 
and I am a child of the twentieth century 
and I recall that the others ahead of me 
filled their eyes 
they filled their eyes 
they filled their eyes 
Suck in that stomach sister 
the fruit within your loins expanding 
a strange locked code 
the overflow of our occidental ancestral home 

Content?

My life is so complete 
everything is straightened out 
I feel the hand of god 
I feel no sense of doubt 

My life is so complete 
everything is straightened out 
I feel the hand of god 
I feel no sense of doubt 
but there's something about 
the straightened arrow 

there's something about 
there's something about 
there's something about 
this is the big fear 

get off the cross, dear 
we need the wood 
we need the wood 
deep in your twisted mind 
you're saving all mankind 
we need the wood 

something about 
something about 

Jessica, a snatch of ultraviolet 
a day in somewhere riding horses 
made of rust and sunset 
Jessica ultraviolet 
a day in somewhere riding horses made of sunset

Trigger for Happiness

Enough searching to know 
that we've lost ourselves 
in our slot machines, shotguns, and stripmalls 
baby your technology 
so slick and functional 
and me without my nuclear arsenal 
And if I could kill without guilt or sin 
there'd soon be a few less record executives 
and if I could kill and recieve forgiveness 
there'd sure as hell be one less president 

there's got to be a pill for forgiveness 
there's got to be a trigger for happiness 
Automatic sensory remote control 
weather sattelites manipulate your soul 
efficiently without a modicum of grace 
I want to go out with a smile on my face
