Stampeding through the city streets Those were our families he did eat We played we powers we didn't understand Now this destruction's on our head I ebb and flow out by the moon Feel the vibrations that signal doom I spit and churl myself across the land I'm frothing seething with the power Feed me ships watch as I devour An immortal power that is beyond man He lives in me

Diamonds and little talk, the finest wines arrive by maid and down to the bottom of the bottle they go. Come on now, let's have a laugh, and some trio and minuet. This is a night of satisfaction The promise of satin sheets. Her blood is spilled all over. He wipes his blade, and sings her off to sleep. Singin' "Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba" The tables are lined with cushioned seats. Mind your manners, Lady Jane. Some will call, but others wait. Now it's the last call for the night, a gentleman's smile catches her eye. He takes her hand and leads the dance. The promise of satin sheets. Her blood is spilled all over. He wipes his blade, and sings her off to sleep. Singin' "Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba" Here now, let's have a toast! But the governor's glasses are covered in smoke- He's too busy thinking about yesterday... Singin' "Ba Ba Ba Ba Da Ba Ba Ba Ba"

She met me on the corner, where I put up my guard She's saying life's not easy, well that's true man, it's hard With feet first into the clouds, and head first into the ground Alright Well alright Yeah We were out late walking, she's talking to a friend So I was out there dreaming, ignoring what she said My head first into the ground, my feet first into the crowd Alright No that's not right No Standing under a lamppost, she's staring at the wall This girl man, she was mental, she started to ball She started to ball x3 My head first into the clouds, my feet take me around town at night Well this night, night, night Yeehaw!

Oh you boy telepathy, I saw your electricity. And your sins, they're still in the water, see them steaming. Oh you flaunted being, why are you in my dreams? Your air is so cold and I'm vomiting. Swimming all through the water. The man with the fire is coming to tell you all about his stories hiding in his belly. I had a father, would you need to know his name? And years ago I thought it was interesting how telepathic boys are made.

I try to combat these terrors when little hands are forced to weave and sew. So I try and I buy, I try and I buy, I try and I buy these secondhand clothes. I know progress is slow, when little hands from foreign lands Are forced to go weave and sew, so I try and I buy When I can, secondhand, when I can, secondhand So I try and I buy, when I can, secondhand. Rips and tears against and Empire of Threads, built on hungry desperate ones in forgein lands. So I try and I buy, I try and I buy, I try and I buy these secondhand clothes. I know progress is slow, when little hands from foreign lands Are forced to go weave and sew, so I try and I buy When I can, secondhand, when I can, secondhand So I try and I buy, when I can, secondhand Excess. I don't need more. Make it hurt. Make it hurt.
