Track Name: Usul
SON OF LETO
I AM MUAD’DIB
SOLE HEIR TO THE HOUSE ATREIDES

THE MESSIAH
KWISATZ HADERACH
A KINDJAL WAS SHOVED IN OUR BACK

ARRAKIS
THE UNIQUE SOURCE FOR
MIND ENHANCING SPICE MELANGE

USED BY THE
GUILD NAVIGATOR FOR
TRAVEL BENDING SPACE AND TIME

HE WHO CONTROLS ARRAKIS
CONTROLS THE SPICE
THEREFORE CONTROLS
THE UNIVERSE AND ITS COMMERCE
FROM CALADAN TO GIEDI PRIME

THE TYRANT
THE GLUTTON
THE BARON HARKONNEN
AND PADISHAH EMPEROR
CONSPIRED TOGETHER

I MUST NOT FEAR
FEAR IS THE MIND KILLER
IT IS THE LITTLE DEATH THAT BRINGS
TOTAL OBLITERATION
I MUST FACE MY FEAR

I WILL PERMIT IT TO
PASS OVER ME AND THROUGH ME
WHEN MY FEAR IS GONE
I WILL TURN TO FACE FEAR’S PATH
AND ONLY I WILL REMAIN

THE SPICE MUST FLOW

SOME THOUGHTS HAVE
A CERTAIN SOUND
THAT BEING EQUIVALENT
TO A FORM THROUGH
SOUND AND MOTION
YOU’LL BE ABLE TO PARALYZE NERVES
SHATTER BONES
SET FIRES
SUFFOCATE AN ENEMY
OR BURST HIS ORGANS
WE WILL KILL UNTIL
NO HARKONNEN BREATHES
ARRAKEEN AIR

MY NAME IS A KILLING WORD

LONG LIVE THE FIGHTERS
Track Name: Punintentional
I’M A SET UP AND I’M A PUNCHLINE
I KNOCK AND YOU FIND OUT
I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE
I’M THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
SOMETHING AND A HUMAN BEING
I’M WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU
CROSS TWO THINGS
I’M THREE ETHNICITIES
WALKING INTO A BAR
THREE DEAD NUNS AT THE
GATES OF SAINT PETER

STOP ME IF YOU'VE HEARD THIS ONE

DO YOU GET IT
THE FIRST DAY OF APRIL
DO YOU GET IT
A REAL KNEE SLAPPER
DO YOU GET IT
IT’S FUNNY ISN'T IT
Track Name: Bill, Helen and The Big Easy
QUIET
CALM

ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS
FOR A STORM’S A BREWING
ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS
FOR A STORM SHE COMES

IF THEY SHOW YOU SOME PITY
THEN YOU’LL GET ON YOUR KNEES
FUCK THE ABUSE AND TORTURE
GRANT YOUR SOUL A DESERVED REPRIEVE
IF THEY SHOW YOU SOME TITTIES
THEN YOU’LL GIVE THEM SOME BEADS
FUCK THE MUSIC AND CULTURE
GET THE FUCK OUT OF NEW ORLEANS

THEY’RE ONE IN THE SAME
A FAILING RELATIONSHIP OR
AN ANNUAL HURRICANE

FOOL ME ONCE
SHAME ON YOU
FOOL ME TWICE
SHAME ON ME
FOOL ME THREE
THERE IS NO OPTION FOR
HOW POSSIBLY STUPID THAT CAN BE

I CAN’T KEEP ADJUSTING MY POSITION
JUST TO STAY IN THE EYE OF YOUR STORM
HARD TO NURSE A FEVERISH CONDITION WHEN YOUR TEMPERATURES ARE COLD AND WARM
AND ALTHOUGH MY JUXTAPOSITION
PAVED A ROAD INTO HELL INSTEAD
WE KEEP LIVING BELOW SEA LEVEL
ALWAYS IN OVER OUR HEADS

WINDS CHURNING
NEVER LEARNING
WARM AND COLD MIXING
AIR SPEEDS CONVERGING
ONLY DESTRUCTION TO BE
LEFT IN ITS WAKE

WHEN ALL YOU START ENDS IN FAILURE
MOVE FROM THE PARK MOVE FROM THE TRAILER
WHEN YOU FEEL STUCK
JUST A NUISANCE
TIME TO GET THE FUCK
RIGHT OUT OF TEXAS

OR LOSE YOURSELF
OR LOSE YOUR SOUL

SPENT SO MANY YEARS
CHASING THESE TWISTERS
WHEN I FINALLY FOUND ONE
NEVER COULD HAVE PREPARED
MYSELF TO BECOME ONE WITH
THE BROKEN WINDOWS
UPROOTED TREES
FLIPPED OVER CARS
DETACHED ROOFING

QUIET
CALM
Track Name: Lecherous
OLD ENOUGH TO PEE
OLD ENOUGH FOR ME

IF THERE’S GRASS ON THE FIELD PLAY BALL

PAPER CUTS FRAMED IN
WISPS OF COTTON CANDY

THAT COULD BE YOUR SISTER
THAT COULD BE YOUR NIECE
THAT COULD BE YOUR DAUGHTER

IT’S THE HORMONES IN THE BEEF

COME OVER HERE AND SIT
ON GRANDFATHER’S LAP

LOOK BUT DON’T TOUCH

YOU’RE ONLY 15
GOING ON 33
Track Name: Asshole Freebird Guy
BEAR WITH US
THIS IS A TEST
OF YOUR PATIENCE
AND INTELLIGENCE

THE LOOKS ON YOUR
FACES RIGHT NOW
ARE PRICELESS
HEADS COCKED TO THE SIDE
JUST LIKE CONFUSED DOGS

JUST TOO CRAZY
JUST TOO WACKY
SO SIT BACK AND RELAX

SO I JUST GOT DONE
WATCHING YOUR GUYS’ SET
AND I LIKE SOME OF WHAT I HEARD
YOU GUYS HAVE GOT A LOT
GOING ON AND ARE OBVIOUSLY
VERY TALENTED MUSICIANS
BUT
YOU NEED TO TUNE UP THOSE GUITARS
NOT DO SO MANY FILLS WITH THE DRUMS
CUT OUT ALL THAT SCREAMIN
AND BASICALLY CHANGE
YOUR ENTIRE STYLE
BUT I MEAN OTHER THAN THAT

YOU GUYS ARE GOOD
JUST THAT YOU SUCK

THANK YOU FOR THE ADDITIONAL
TWO CENTS YOU ADDED
TO THE FIVE BUCKS YOU PAID
TO GET IN SO WE CAN GIVE YOU
A SOUNDTRACK TO STAND OUTSIDE
AND SMOKE CIGARETTES TO
WE DON’T DO THIS FOR YOU
WE DON’T DO THIS WITH
YOUR OPINION IN MIND

THIS IS A COMPLETELY SELFISH ACT
THIS IS A TEST
OF YOUR PATIENCE
AND INTELLIGENCE

AND YOU FAILED
Track Name: Eventual Inevitability
NONE OF YOU ARE UP TO ANY GOOD
THERE’S NOT A SINGLE
GOOD INTENTION TO BE
HAD AMONG YOU ALL

IF MY TRUST IS BASED ON
HOW FAR I CAN THROW YOU
I CAN HARDLY PICK YOU UP

KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL
SIT WITH YOUR BACK TO THE WALL

I AM A TUMOR
I AM A COG
FUELING THE FIRE
PILING THE LOGS
TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE
A SIMEON
SAVAGE APES WITH
OPPOSABLE THUMBS

WAR
DISEASE
GREED
POLLUTION

GONE THE WAY OF THE DODO
WAY OF THE DINOSAUR

IN MY TIME I'VE NOTICED
A STEADY DECLINE
Track Name: √-1
(√-1)
Track Name: The Drift
UP FROM THE PACIFIC ROSE A GIANT BEAST
KAIJU
WE BUILT OUR OWN MONSTERS
COLOSSAL MACHINES
JAEGER

THE PRECURSORS
WORLD DESTROYERS
TRIAL RUN BEFORE
WITH DINOSAURS
BACK THEN EARTH WASN’T CONDUCIVE
OUR POLLUTION
TERRAFORMED IT

INCREASED TRAFFIC
WILL STABILIZE THE BREACH
GIVING TIME FOR A NUKE TO BE RELEASED
DRIFT WITH THE KAIJU
SEE WHAT IT’S THINKING
ERADICATION OF OUR WHOLE SPECIES
DON’T CHASE THE RABBIT
THEY’RE JUST MEMORIES

A DOUBLE EVENT OTACHI AND LEATHERBACK
CRIMSON TYPHOON
CHERNO ALPHA AND STRIKER ATTACK
THUNDERCLOUD FORMATION
TOUGHNESS AND AIR MISSILES ARE NO MATCH
FOR BRUTE STRENGTH
ACID SPIT
AND AN EMP BLAST

JAEGERS ARE DIGITAL
ALL EXCEPT FOR ONE
GIPSY DANGER

ENGAGE ELBOW ROCKET AND PLASMA CANNON
EMPTY THE CLIP
HIT THE COOLANT AND SHATTER ITS TAIL
REACH IN ITS MOUTH AND RIP OUT ITS TONGUE

SURPRISE IT FLIES
GRABBED FROM BOTH SIDES
ASCENDING
OXYGEN DROPPING
WE’RE OUT OF OPTIONS
AND IT’S NOT STOPPING

THE SWORD

TWO JAEGERS LEFT
TWO WALKING NUCLEAR REACTORS

SCUNNER AND RAIJU ARE CIRCLING THE BREACH
TWO CATEGORY FOURS THE FASTEST WE’VE EVER SEEN
ROASTED LIKE A MARSHMALLOW
GUTTED LIKE A FISH
FOLLOWED BY A CATEGORY 5
THE FIRST ONE EVER

DETONATE THE PAYLOAD

GRAB A CREATURE
FOR THE BREACH WORKS
LIKE A SUPERMARKET SCANNER
WHEN IT READS THE GENETIC CODE
INITIATE SELF DESTRUCT MODE

WHERE IS MY GODDAMN SHOE
Track Name: First World Problems
SSDD

DON’T KNOW IF I SHOULD
SHIT OR GO BLIND
JACK OFF OR PLAY VIDEO GAMES
IT’S GROUNDHOG’S DAY
AND I’M BILL FUCKIN MURRAY
THESE DAYS SEEM TO
PLAY OUT THE SAME

SO WHO’S HERE TO FUCK
AND WHO’S HERE TO FIGHT
I’D TAKE EITHER BUT
BOTH WOULD BE NICE
THEN MAYBE I COULD GET
SOME OF THIS SHIT
OUT OF MY SYSTEM AND
START FEELING RIGHT
SO WHO’S HERE TO FIGHT

ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER DOLLAR
ANOTHER LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER
ANOTHER DAY’S LAST PENNY
SPENT LIVING IN SQUALOR
ANOTHER PURSE PICKED CLEAN OF ITS LAST RED CENT
AND I STILL GOTTA SCROUNGE DOUGH FOR RENT

THE COST OF LIVING IS
GETTING TO BE MORE
THAN I CAN AFFORD
IF GOD GAVE ME A MILLION BUCKS
THEN I’D PRAISE THE LORD
FOR THE PENNY IS
MIGHTIER AND THE REASON
THAT YOU’RE SHITTING
ON THE DICKER TO AVOID
GETTING BLOOD ON THE SWORD

GRAB YOUR ANKLE
AND PRAY TO YOUR LORD
OR WHOMEVER YOU MAY PRAISE
A STEADY PAYCHECK AND
MATERIALISM IS WHERE
I FIND MY HAPPY PLACE

WE ENDURE THE CURRENT CRISIS
WITH CHEMICALS AND OTHER VICES
WE ENDURE THE CURRENT CRISIS
WITH BOOKS AND PORTABLE DEVICES

DISTRACTION

ONE MORE WOUND
THAT WON’T HEAL
ONE MORE WALL
ONE LESS REASON TO FEEL

ONE MORE JOB
ONE MORE BILL
ONE MORE BREAK
OF MY POWER OF WILL

ONE MORE DAB
ONE MORE PILL
ONE MORE DRINK
ONE MORE MEMORY TO KILL

ONE MORE FACE
ONE MORE NAME
ONE MORE FAULT
ONE MORE PERSON TO BLAME

SO WHO’S HERE TO FUCK
AND WHO’S HERE TO FIGHT
