Track Name: On A Saturday Night
She walked in the door
On a Saturday night
Threw her coat on the couch
And stood under the light
"I know you from somewhere"
Somewhere unknown
"You know what I'm sayin'"
She said "I don't know"

You look so fine
With blood on your skirt
Wanna chase you 'round the table
Wanna make you hurt

Put the needle on my record
And stood up from the chair
She's an angel from the darkness
With a jet black stare
Thickness in the air
At a quarter to ten
Places my hands on her hips
And she spoke again

"You look like a man
That I'd like to steal"
Pleasures come with measures
From her sex appeal

Dance the night away

Stood over my body
With a bowie knife
Smile for the camera
You're paying for your crimes
Track Name: Specimen One
She knows for sure I'm here
I feel her move the night air
Where did she go all these years?
Over my bed she appears

So I said "Christine,
You're as beautiful as
Bloodflowers in rain"
So take me away

Pulls the Venetian curtains
Map dowsing for directions
Just eyes and no words spoken

Somewhere beyond the borders
We move and take no orders
We kill with quick precision
Terrified shapes they were rigid
Escape to fix what's broken
Two hands on my throat chokin'
Chokin'
And chokin'

So I said "Christine,
You're as beautiful as
Bloodflowers in rain"
The Tetragrammaton
Must be configured my son
You will be specimen one
Track Name: Texas Funeral
A little bit of sunshine
A little bit of soul
A little bit of anything
Down in my hole

20,000 leagues
Under the earth alone
Wont stop me thinkin' bout you
Down in my hole
Down in my hole

I love the way you shovel
I love it when you're cold
I love it when you're looking down
Down in my hole

20,000 leagues
Under the earth alone
Wont stop me thinkin' bout you
Down in my hole
Down in my hole

One of us is the killer
Texas funeral
One of us is broken down
Down in my hole

20,000 leagues
Under the earth alone
Wont stop me thinkin' bout you
Down in my hole
Down in my hole

A little bit of sunshine
A little bit of soul
A little bit of anything
Down in my hole
Track Name: Master Of Thieves
You laid me down
Slab of concrete
Tubes in my skin
Ropes on my feet

Where am I?
Where are we?
Who is the master of thieves?

I'm scared
But you're beautiful

The number four
Sacred, I know
Blood rushing out
Watch as it flows

Stainless steel
Cold machines
Run by the master of thieves

I'm scared
But you're beautiful

How many people
Have you left down here for dead?
I'm delirious again
Don't take me back to them

You're a thief
Dead to me
You're a thief
Steal my dreams
Track Name: Flying Cars
There were flowers
There were flying cars
There were rocketships
And passageways to Mars

A little angel
Inside a glowing shell
Brought color to this world
And kept the crimson down in hell

Come on come on come on
See all the people
Come on come on come on
Seemingly evil
Guide you to the temple
In the valley below
In the valley below
In the valley below

Shut your mouth right now
Said the blackest bird
Place your hand in mine
Wait your fucking turn
Dreams in black and white
All the colors burned
Nothing is everything
Everything's nothing
And something is coming
And I'll never learn

Come on come on come on
Laugh until you cry
Come on come on come on
In dreams I always die
Somewhere in the temple
In the valley below
In the valley below
In the valley below oh no

Shut your mouth right now
Said the blackest bird
Place your hand in mine
Wait your fucking turn
Dreams in black and white
All the colors burned
Nothing is everything
Everything's nothing
And something is coming
And I'll never learn

What happened to the flying cars?
Track Name: Friend Of Mine
Opened my eyes at 1am
Never seen a crowd that looked like them
Torches up high
Phalanx formation
Black tooth slithering from station to station

Friend of the devil
Well, he's a friend of mine
So follow me down this time

Through the eye of the needle
Ran the camels divine
Wolves at the door to greet you
But the wolves are running blind
They're running blind

Something told me that the end was near
But the only known mind killer is fear
Bloodshot eyes
Township rebellion
Fists in the air, here come the hellions

Friend of the devil
Well, he's a friend of mine
Help me see the light

Through the eye of the needle
Ran the camels divine
Wolves at the door to greet you
But the wolves are running blind
They're running blind

The chains are broken
Going out of my mind
Let me out of here

Friend of the devil
Well, he's a friend of mine
Help me see the light

Through the eye of the needle
Ran the camels divine
Wolves at the door to greet you
But the wolves are running blind
They're running blind
Track Name: The Western World
Everything a little left of center
Nothing yet has been quite this hard
Take me to the nearest winter
Can't be that far
The sun is rising on the bend I wonder
What lies beyond meadow line
Questions that remained unanswered
Will resolve in time

In the western world

The grass was greener on the other side
But the other side was a field of thorns
Now we build the towers just to brave another perfect storm
Everything must happen for a reason
When the reasons finally 'turn to form
The silent paradise of Asphodel will finally keep us warm

In the western world

The sun is high and I'm smiling again

This is the end.
