Track Name: Who Died in Our Back Yard?
This worlds an open casket
Leave these bones out to dry
Can't believe they were dying
Last I saw through those eyes

I am falling
I am crawling
I am dying
I am dead
I will scream
Released from the pristine
Sickness creeping in my head

10 20 30 40
How much longer can we abort these
Facts of sorrow
bodies borrowed
bodies stolen
forcibly solemn life
Have emotions drained
From the official body of concentrated law
Well what is law?
Deportation?
In a sick way filled with destruction and death
Who?
Who died in our backyard

Who died in our backyard
Who died in our backyard
Who died in our backyard
Who died

10, 20, 30, 40,
how many more till we abhor these
Facts of sorrow bodies borrowed bodies stolen
Dehydration, execution by extremes of heat and dry
No one listens, no one tries
it's easy to ignore
It's easy easy easy to ignore
Easy easy easy to ignore
Easy easy easy to ignore
It's easy...
It's easy...
Track Name: Revolution
They came with the gun
They came with the gun
And took you away
Into the night
Into the night
Nothin left to see
Suddenly gone
Another pawn
Just to fuck our head
And nothing left
Just a loss and a theft
And the draining on of time

All for the love
Off of the love
A revolution
All for the love
Off of the love
A revolution
All for the love
Off of the love
A revolution
All for the love
Off of the love
A revolution

Did you draw blood
Did you draw blood
When you took him away?
Did you get what you want
Get what you want
Tortured from his body
Suddenly gone
Another pawn
That's got nothin, nothin to do with your war
And nothin left
Just a loss and a theft
An innocence gone just for show

All for the love
Off of the love
A revolution
All for the love
For the loss and the love
A revolution
All for the love
Off of the love
A revolution
All for the love
For the loss and the love
A revolution

Oh, it was cold that night
When he was taken from her side
Oh, and fighting for the life
Of a dark blood covered knife
Ooh-oh, did you like watching them die?
Did you like hearing their screams?
Did you like when they'd bleed?
The lives of the hungry
Lives of the poor
Lives of a generation
Lives of a lost war

All for the love
For the loss and the love
A revolution
All for the love
For the loss and the love
A revolution
All for the love
For the loss and the love
A revolution
All for the love
For the loss and the love
A revolution
Track Name: Lights Out
Today of all days
She becomes a child
And senses that she forgot
Will grow to be normal
The hot air will freeze just like it does
When winter comes
A piece of meat, she seems so sweet
It will drive him wild

She'll walk alone, as she walks home
Cause she's familiar with the city
And with the light on
She can be so safe
With the light on
She she can feel okay
With a light on...
She still won't see him come around

It's scenic
Post light on post light on
He who sees you now
She's too far gone
Post light on, post light on
Darker in her head
She craves nothing
And in the bath,
She catches her breath
She finds
Comfort in her own death
And a body
Is a canvas
If you cover it in paints that will ebb

The cold
Is in her skin, is on her lips
A forced feeling of emptiness
Radiates from her hips
And she lies
Blank and numb
She lies
Nude and young
She lies
Now, to herself

He shoved words into her mouth
Telling her how to feel
She didn't know if she had screamed
Cause none of it was real, was it?
But bruises
Make her look like art
That's what he said
When he tore her apart
And with the light on,
She can see
The tattered landscape

It's scenic
Post light on,
Post light on
He who sees you now
She's too far gone
Post light on
Post light on
Darker in your head
She craves nothing
And in the bath,
She catches her breath
She finds
Comfort in her own death
And a body
Is a canvas
If you cover it in paints that will ebb
That will ebb
Track Name: Crystal Kind
Stunned n stuck, thunderstruck,
you’re a storm, oh you’re a trip
Overlooked your open book
You tried to hide, but the act would slip
I found love in a God I never knew existed
Does he know me, or just know my face?
...
Brown eyes, blue eyes,
They're green, I know, I see them all the time(?)
Colors changing according to the drug
See him in bright weather,
He lights the sun with his mind
I knew him from when he choked out words
I found love in a god I never knew existed
Does he know me or just know my face?
Know me, know my face
A crystal kind
Sparkling red, when your past is dead
And it is finally fine
With visions of car crashes
And those eyes
Know me, know my face
A crystal kind...

Stupefy me, my honey
For you I'll be an empty vessel
Fill me and take me anywhere, anywhere
Heaven or hell I don't give a damn
Heaven or hell well I don't care
And so if love fades, and fades my dear
Will our love fade and fade my dear?
See me blow away but you will never,
Never fade in my eyes
You will never fade in my eyes
In my eyes
In my eyes
Are visions, in my eyes
Car crashes, carved my lashes
In my eyes, car crashes,
Carve my lashes
(In my)...

So if love fades and fades my dear
Don't make it soon
So if love fades and fades my dear
You will never fade in my eyes,
you will never fade in my eyes
So if love fades and fades my dear
Don't make it soon
So if love fades and fades my dear,
You will never fade in my eyes,
You will never fade in my eyes
Track Name: Machine
You are his robot
Tell me how does it feel?
Do you like
Like it when
When he treats you
Just like you aren't real?
When they ask

Does she talk, she talk,
does she speak, or is she deaf?
Does she talk, she talk,
Can she move, or is she dead?

Does she breathe?
You're his machine
Remote controls you
Tell me how does it feel?
And you can't get out of the shell,
Can't break off the metal,
You like being his well-
oiled woman, well

Does she talk, she talk,
Does she speak or is she deaf?
Does she talk, she talk
Damn I wish my wife was like that
Just like her
Does she speak?
Does she think?
For herself, oh, she is a machine
Ooh touch her, go ahead and touch her
I Don't think she'll respond
Can
She smile?
Give good head?
Is she worthwhile
In bed, bet she's good
Oh I want one,
I want one,
I want one of those pets
Look
She's so tiny,
She's so thin,
Her skin is made from porcelain, wow
Well your porcelain doll
Never says a thing at all
Just does what I say
Oh, she talks
Oh, she thinks
How does it feel to be quiet about it
Can you take it,
Can you take it,
Can you take it
Or will you burst
Oh, it hurts
Oh, she talks
Oh, she can think
She is a machine
She is a mad girl
She is a bad girl
And she's goin out to get a gun
Track Name: Father Take
Father take
Take away my sins
Take away my skin and
Wash it with bleach
So you can teach
Me a lesson, father,
A lesson,
I need a teacher

Father, father take away my sin
Oh father, father, take away my sin
Oh father, father take me, take away my sin
Without you I'll never be cleansed

Cleanse me father, oh
Whip me father
If it means father
I'll be clean, oh father
I'm a glutton
I'm a whore
I'll always need more

Of your teachings father, teach me to be pristine
Oh father, father, my sins are deadly
Father, father can I call you daddy?
Oh take me, take me without you I'm nothing

Without you, father, I'd still be nothin but a woman
Without you, father,
I'd never discover heaven
Without you, and your kind ways,
Take me away,
Father take, take me to be praised by the lord
Father I've tried to find salvation
Without you, father I'd never be nothin but a woman
Without you and your kind ways, father take
Oh father take
Take me down to your country of the lord

Of the lord
By the lord
Father, I would never discover my fate
A holy fate
To be like you
Taking the donations and pocketing them

Oh, You must face poverty
Oh, you must be so poor
Oh I feel so bad for you
Let's all clap for you and cheer you on

Without you,
Father I'd never be nothin but a woman
Without you, father I've tried to find salvation
Without you, and your holy ways
Father take
Well I found hell,
Without you, and without the lord
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Without you, oh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Let me confess
And I'll be cleansed, right?
