Track Name: False Idols
I don't worry about the afterlife
(insert name here)'s my God and He is on my side
Your false idols got nothing on mine
You'll get what's coming to you in good time

No explanation or facts are needed
As long as I believe it, it's good enough
And it's my right to strike you down
Put your parents and children under ground

Cause my God disapproves of your lifestyle
And your false religion and your place of origin
And that's why He asked me to intimidate you
To harass and hate you, oppress and enslave you
In his bloody name

My place in heaven is guaranteed
So says my trusted elder as he arms the bomb
And it's my right to strike you down
Put your parents and children under ground

Cause my God disapproves of your lifestyle
And your false religion and your place of origin
And that's why He asked me to intimidate you
To harass and hate you, oppress and enslave you
In his bloody name
Track Name: Puppets
Puppets impeccably dressed, the majority blessed
Assemble on the floor to wag their jaws and
The ticker tape words issue from their mouths
Transcribed verbatim from the company meetings
There's money to be made!
A simple mantra for simple minds
There's money to be made!

But there's never enough
In the trough, never enough
To slake an endless need
Never enough in the trough, never enough
To slake and endless greed

Future's rosy, profits have never been higher
Projections on the rise
In the corner office things are looking bright
But down at the bottom Mainstreet's burning
Down at the bottom it's the same old shit
Just a different day
And the Final Notices piled up on the table
And posted on the door

It's never enough
In the trough, never enough
To slake an endless need
Never enough in the trough, never enough
To slake and endless greed

Never enough
Track Name: Around the Bend
Old friend you see the end is nigh
I'll give it to you straight, shall I?
Your footloose days are done
Nowhere left to run
Run, run, nowhere to run

These people here on you depend
Obligations never end
Bills to pay, beans to count
Hurry up! Settle down!
Down, down, just settle down

But the road beckons you on
Open like a song
The promise of a new day around the bend
It twists you up inside, to forever bide
While the melody plays inside your head
And it will until the end
Until the end

These routines become the norm
Calm seas replace the storm
Your sturm and drang give way
To the everyday
Hey hey an honest day

Well you can't say you were misinformed
Well you can't say you were led astray when
You end up standing right at your front door

But the road beckons you on
Open like a song
The promise of a new day around the bend
It twists you up inside, to forever bide
While the melody plays inside your head
And it will until the end
Until the end
Track Name: Cipher
Oh I won't go out with a whisper
Oh I'll go out with a city block
And I'll write my name in flames against the darkness

Oh another cipher with a pistol
Oh trying to make his minus a plus
Trying to write his name in flames against the darkness
Trying to write his name in flames against the darkness

Bye bye so long catch you later catch you later
Bye bye so long see you 'round next time

I killed my gods to watch them die
Stillborn in my prime
My garden withered on the vine
Parched and full of blight
Oh in my prime

Oh I was hated and not known
Oh I was crowded and all alone
Trying to write my name in flames against the darkness
Trying to write my name in flames against the darkness

Bye bye so long catch you later catch you later
Bye bye so long see you 'round next time

I killed my gods to watch them die
Stillborn in my prime
My garden withered on the vine
Parched and full of blight
Oh in my prime
Track Name: This is Goodbye
There is a long long long long time to say goodbye
From the moment of your first fiery inhalation 'til you arrive
At the edge of all knowing and the other side

There is no no no no telling what awaits you there
So pass the bottle round let the stars rotate in the heavens
While the weather's fair
And when your body fails you I'll be waiting
Waiting at the stairs
At the stairs
I'll meet you there

Though I've loved these things in my heart
Though I'm loathe to depart
This is goodbye
