Track Name: Sex Kevorkian
Standing on the roof soaking in microwaves
What is the proof of this here market-based
Solution under our skin
It's like some kind of Sex Kevorkian

Salty sweet like fat fried black in gasoline
The cleanest sheets to wipe your asshole clean
Pollution, wages of sin
What we need now is Sex Kevorkian

Naked bodies strapped in seats rain from the sky
Isolate the pain, yes, keep it localized
Revolution & next of kin
Open up wide for Sex Kevorkian
Track Name: Bootstrap
There's a chair out of sight of the road
Underneath anemic sky
Where solitude's your lone true friend
Your only hope to stop the bleed
It is there that the heights of indulgence
Never gained come within reach
All your promise remains your own
And you can burn away the pain

But it's not yours today
We're standing in your way
There's something in the way
It's always something

Anonymous & indiscreet
Issues lament from smudged-out haze
Congregation's authorship
Brooks no discernment, spares no shame
A slack jaw and a dead-eyed stare
It's fait accompli once again
Where solitude's your lone true friend
Your only hope to stop the bleed
Track Name: Army Math
Not poor, just broke
Not drunk but I get the fucking joke
For all the riches I can see
I advocate anarchy
Après moi, le déluge
It's revoked

Got burned, now I'm hot
I'm concerned about everything I'm not
Persistence gets me more than skill
If I can't keep me no one will
Up against the wall
Take the shot

Do the army math
It don't add up
You don't add up
Track Name: Leather Trade
It's the leather trade
Take the shot heard 'round the world
When the law says stand your ground
And this parking lot is yours

It's the leather trade
Christian soldier turn your cheek
As the meek & fallen rise
And wipe your small problems away

It's the leather trade
We've come to learn of soils & men
When the smile says step outside
Won't you come out & play
Track Name: Pipe City
Ain't got no place to go
Same as yesterday
Capital, it fails us now
So we're down with the UXA
Did time in Miseryville
They called it Pipe City
Got the strength, got the will
They got nothing to pay

From whence this grand calamity
Reducing lord & liege
An abandoned storefront tells
The story of a siege
Where's our Daddy Warbucks now
Where's the noblesse oblige
All the things that make a life
Suspended out of reach

It's out of reach
You're out of range
We've got the strength
To turn the page
Track Name: Black Aspect
Here at the source of ineffable cachet
Guileless cynics raise toasts to chic naïveté
Heretics burn, dogma goes unexplained
What's known is spent; all else was spoken for yesterday
We bear our sores with the requisite of shame
We're in your stores & restaurants shaking our chains
We are the source of ineffable cachet
What's ours is yours; all else is bait, on pawn or up for trade

Charlie on horse ride through dystopian dreamscape
Survey annexed sedated lands for fallen saints
Cipher in spotlight, black aspect on display
What treason & sedition does the side-ward glance betray
You drain our sores for ineffable cachet
Frames without doors for ineffable cachet
Sex on all fours for ineffable cachet
Even the score for ineffable cachet
Track Name: Flower of Southern Womanhood
There's a sickly sweet smell hanging in the breeze
If Mercy's here, she'll steer well clear of me
'Cause what's ours is ours & what's yours is what we please
And the Flower of Southern Womanhood agrees

Watch you swing & do your dance
This falling down is driving me insane
We do this in her name, increase the pressure by degrees
And the Flower of Southern Womanhood agrees
Track Name: Litigant
Are you falling asleep
Is is time that we pray
Did the argument end
Did you have final say
Cross-examination delayed
Taking in this cascade
Marching in this parade
Vessel lists to the right
Overboard, we're capsized
Grab your nearest friend

Hold fast
We'll see who's dragging who down
In this sound
Talk fast
Resonate to resound
Sing your song

Your deposition's on file
Track Name: Third Way Man
No man's an island it's been said
Out here amongst the living dead
Predetermined by my physiology
I'm third way man

Yeah yeah yeah

Out here on the margins of discontent
Differentiate us by what's been spent
Learn to leverage my consumer sovereignty
Can't hold me down
Track Name: Chemtrails
Chemtrails stitch up the sky
Doesn't happen everyday
Explanation proffered
But they lack in credibility
When the regime's insane
I choose dissent over this game
Give me time & I'll explain
The way they use those planes

Black bags & false flags
Tell me who do you believe
Who stands to profit
From the wisdom that's received
Chemtrails stitch up the sky
Happening now everyday
The sky is falling
No one gets away
