I'm in a critical
conditional
hospital admission room
the mission knew that wishes grew
with all the ones I love

I'm in a typical
cylindrical
virtuoso ritual
a residual of tissue blood
give mama all my Love!

Bethesda Kolumbethra
disinfector
My condition is in rhythm
with the prism

Alive but I'm cynical
rabbinical
The commandant admitted so
I added the soldier digital
Just don't forget my Love!

Eyes on the physical
Cataclysmically
Taking over of the body
In the muddy water goddess
Some to cleanse my Love!

My condition is in rhythm

Track Name: (There's a) Narc In Lorenzi Park
I walked into the park with a twenty
and a fisherman gave me a nod
I looked into his bucket to see no fish
so I didn't even ask what he had caught

The Mexican man with a soccer ball
pouring lighter fluid onto a grill
they're taking in the bees with their families
and those children they could never stay still

Ooh there's a narc in Lorenzi Park
Ooh ooh and don't stay after dark

Is Sammy Davis Jr. still dancing?
He'll be dancing right in front of this bush
and when the groundskeeper come
he shoos him off like a bum
He said, "Hey man, you lost all your moves"

And the teenagers run the pavilion
they were smoking and a jamming their tunes...all right!
and the girlfriend said
she's fuckin' already dead
and her boyfriend will be along soon

Ooh there's a narc in Lorenzi Park
Ooh ooh and don't stay after dark
Ooh there's a narc in Lorenzi Park
Ooh ooh and don't stay after dark
Track Name: Black Paradise
Don't touch the poison
you'll die
But girl, you'll still try
you'll still try

All through the season
of time
you'll stand, in the sand
then we'll fly

If you're my woman
then I'll be your man
You climb the sky
and I'll work the land
Track Name: Serenade of Phantoms
The Serenade of Phantoms
coming in through sound waves of sorrow
they'll be silent by tomorrow

A evil shadow on a primitive grave
the ghost is listening to Sam & Dave
I got a guitar from a runaway slave
I take my orders from the serenade
Track Name: They'll Bring Flowers To Your Grave (One Day)
In your dreams
you’re a queen
of the underground regime

And your taste is so obscene
you’ve got lips like Steve McQueen

But the people dig your way
they’ll bring flowers to your grave
one day

you have style
you have flair
you have snakes instead of hair

te aprende a querer
you were here once now you’re there

m…m…m…m…m…m
Maybe you’ll die all the tension away
Track Name: Your Lion
And if you ever thought that we had given up,
we are still trying.
And even though our feet are on the ground,
maybe we're flying.

Sometimes somehow somewhere
someone used to sleep on this chair

Remember when you told me you were lonely?
Maybe I was
And you used to hide because you're shy,
just like I did

Sometime somehow somewhere
someone used to lick his hair

And if you ever told me you’d be gone
I’d say you’re lion
I see you in the corner of my eye
it's not you

sometime somehow somewhere
someone used always be there
sometime somehow somewhere
someone used to always be here
Track Name: Cinco de Mayo
I'm just like you
I'm just like you
I'm just like you
I'm just like you
You're just like me
I'm just like you
You're just like me
I'm just like you
I'm just like you

You,
didn't you try to get your head on straight?
when's the last time you took a break from doing that?

Hey,
listen to the words your mama say
don't be such a goddamned runaway,
away from here
Track Name: The Cave
you were born bound in chains
in an underground cave

I can't see sideways
I can only look forward
to never ever turning my head

There's a fire from afar
behind a long wall

and the fire and the wall
look like a puppeteer's sideshow

it's a curious image, with curious prisoners...

They are unaware of the fire, let alone that children walk past the fire holding statues, casting shadows onto the wall in front of the prisoners...
And so they believe the shadows, and name them, because this is all they can see.

I stood and turned my head
the fire, the statues, the wall
I knew it wasn't real

they pulled me from the cave
the light, the heat, the sun
I knew it wasn't real

Inside the shadows I see phantoms of humans if I stare at the heavens too long

I fell in love with the meanin' of season
and the cycle of Demeter's loss

I take myself out of the picture
and I pity my friends in the cave

I descend to tell them all of the things
that I know and I know that it's safe
but it wasn't
and they got angry, and now...

Now my friends
they all want to kill me
and they're coming to kill me
and they're all comin'

And my friends
they're all trying to kill me
so they're coming to kill me
and they're all comin'
Track Name: Convergence of the Twain
the dime's in the payphone, the tv is on
and how come every time I look my money is gone?

the swimmin pool’s empty let's go to the pond
and how come every time I look my money is gone?

my wallet was big OH! and it becomes small
Oh how come every time I look my money is gone?
I start at the dusk and stop at the dawn
and that might be a reason that my money is gone

I give some to Eddie he pays it to john
Oh how come every time I look my money is gone?
Oh how come every time I look my money is gone?
Oh how come every time I look my money is gone?
Oh how come every time I look my money is gone?


She like diamonds, she like gold, she like oil
I dig deep in the rocks of the land, of the earth, of the soil

what the fuck? what??? what the fuck? what???

Subterranean life style. I live the subterranean life


Don't look up. I am down. I am down here
My apartment is under the ground, and the ground is, around me

what the fuck? what??? what the fuck? what???

Subterranean life style. I live the subterranean life style

Beep beep… Beep beep… Beep beep…
Subterranean life style. I live the subterranean life style
Beep beep… Beep beep… Beep beep…
Track Name: Mojave
we all got our own minds to clean
haven't been this straight since I was 16
in the mojave

If you're lookin' out towards the west
there's a bird with a spray painted face and chest
in the mojave

I'm a mojave baby
I got mojave hands
and I like to touch you softly
but your skin feels like sand

it's really hard giving all you can give
even though the electric fan did out here
out here...
in the mojave

You can be an Italian cowboy
just drive your Lambo into the sun
in the mojave

Ah man, the mojave.
Because under those shrubs and those old Josh trees
lie the skeletons of a whole bunch of dudes and their families

don't forsake the mojave
take it from the mojave
everything is mojave
listen to the mojave
