Track Name: Distemper
the end is coming
say goodbye
no more dead promises
no more cool lies
civilization cut and dried
the hour of reckoning
that hour has come and passed us by

perish the thought
wish it away
follow your bliss
down into your grave

save yourself
mistakes... landslides

one giant stumble for mankind
each step towards modernness
two steps behind
forget your cares
forget your crimes
your world has broken down
your money cannot save you now

relish the thought
wish it away
follow your bliss
down into your grave

save yourself
mistakes... landslides

aeons
divide
millennia
subside
Track Name: When All is Said & Done
burned those bridges
in the blink of an eye
while rockinghorse people
eat shit and then die

no longer safe
but the fires are warm
when the dark clouds roll in
cover up the sun

cut it!
when all is said and done

holy moses
the lion, the lamb
while the children of abraham
draw lines in the sand

no longer sane
and no memory of the war
when nothing's left, well...
what's it all for?

cut it!
when all is said and done

one day
it'll come
it'll be alright
grab a bird
by the wing
it'll be easy

one day
it'll come
it'll be alright
grab a bird
from a pile
it'll be easy

one day
it'll come
it'll be alright
grab a bird
by the wing
it'll be easy

one day
it'll come
it'll be alright
grab a bird
from a pile...

run!

cut it!
when all is said and done
Track Name: Megistotherium
clean and pristine in the mean miocene
gotta boss gotta run the show
predator snouts smell huge bailouts
the mythical CEO
back on the take
just let them eat cake
as the rest of the equity drains
handing the suits gold parachutes
while the rest go down with plane

round and round you'll spin and you'll drown
limb from limb... one for the ages
round and round just like the dinosaurs
just like the dinosaur

would you follow them if they drove off a cliff?
would you run? would you leap? would you dive?
long in the tooth but short on the truth
keep flappin' but those wings don't fly
runaway trains and hemorrhaging gains
if it wasn't so sad you would laugh
vanity's all down at federal hall
gotta keep the wheat from the chaff

round and round you'll spin and you'll drown
limb from limb... one for the ages
round and round just like the dinosaur
just like the dinosaur

too late, too far, time will tell how lost we are
too late, too far, time will tell how lost we are
too late, the blight has come
our time has come and gone
too late, too far, time will tell how lost we are

insane

round and round you'll spin and you'll drown
limb from limb... one for the ages
round and round just like the dinosaur
just like the dinosaur
Track Name: Morningstar
the tired and the poor complain
free-born and still in chains
no matter how the thought's ingrained
free will is just a long cold dreaming bow

made of fire made of clay
read it again
nothing lost, nothing gained
all supposition vain


the huddled masses all deceived
by wretched craving thieves
all around you hope is grieved
ignorance is just faith's unspoken vow

made of fire made of clay
read it again
no fate ordained
made of fire made of clay
read it again
nothing lost, nothing gained
all supposition vain

the dragon slain
your borders breaking down
perceptions chafe
and the doubt is growing

the empire maimed
your borders breaking down
perceptions chafe
and the doubt is growing

made of fire made of clay
read it again
no fate ordained
made of fire made of clay
read it again
nothing lost, nothing gained
all supposition vain
Track Name: High Horse
for gold and greed
they sailed across the seas
the violence of the righteous did guide them
in freedom's name
every inch was claimed
and providence did shine down upon them
yeah

this horse is right
take the high horse
this horse is right
claim the low road
this horse is right
for you

we made our beds
across the land we spread
like the pious, loving virus that buys you
on freedom's wings
facts are stupid things
especially when they come back to bite you
yeah

this horse is right
take the high horse
this horse is right
claim the low road
this horse is right
for you

it's how we've been trained
while you're bleeding
and your pockets are drained
who are you feeding?
who stands to gain?


this horse is right
take the high horse
this horse is right
claim the low road
this horse is right
for you
Track Name: Troglodyte Jive
the billions waft across the sky
they humble and dare
midway between the gods and beasts yet
going nowhere

credulity kills
while conjecture thrills
there's gold in those hills!
but beware the shills

waist deep in gasoline
the sworn enemies poised
three matches one, the other five
who is destroyed?

credulity kills
while conjecture thrills
there's gold in those hills!
but beware the shills

somewhere, something, waiting to be known
who speaks for us? who claims the throne?
who goes on trial? who casts the stone?

credulity kills
while conjecture thrills
there's gold in those hills!
but beware the shills

the flame it fades, trembles and shakes
the darkness gathers in its place
the demons stir and give chase
Track Name: Thinning the Herd
my soul is screaming down my back
i didn't even hear the rifle crack
don't need the flesh
don't need the fight
just love the sport
love the spite
and i say

fill the canyons
take the holy man at his word
damned if you do and damned sure if you don't
rolling backwards
thinning the herd

the four winds are about to break
from honest deals with the snakes
burn all blankets you can find
burn all the papers you have signed
and i say

fill the canyons
take the holy man at his word
damned if you do and damned sure if you don't
rolling backwards
thinning the herd

when it's time
weep and pray

my soul is singing its last song
dying like a hero going home
and i say

fill the canyons
take the holy man at his word
damned if you do and damned sure if you don't
rolling backwards
thinning the herd
Track Name: Mancuerda
pretend
your life doesn't gnaw
all nerves
surfaced and raw

they all say
the writing's on the wall
one small step
before the fall

take your planet
shove it so far in your face
till your forest
run, you'll be far, you'll be safe

maggot in bacon (wie die maden im speck)
covered in oil (tout baigne dans l'huile)
you're going nowhere
no matter the toil
swim through the mayonnaise (nadar na maionese)
and shout to the wind (huutaa tuuleen)
no one can hear you
over the din

umbrage
becomes the default
the end game
is all you exalt

regrets
they smother the soul
the smallest doubt
becomes a black hole

take your planet
shove it so far in your face
till your forest
run, you'll be far, you'll be safe

maggot in bacon (wie die maden im speck)
covered in oil (tout baigne dans l'huile)
you're going nowhere
no matter the toil
swim through the mayonnaise (nadar na maionese)
and shout to the wind (huutaa tuuleen)
no one can hear you
over the din

till your forest
run, you'll be far, you'll be safe
maggot in bacon (wie die maden im speck)
covered in oil (tout baigne dans l'huile)
you're going nowhere
no matter the toil
swim through the mayonnaise (nadar na maionese)
and shout to the wind (huutaa tuuleen)
no one can hear you
over the din
Track Name: Snake Charmer
rules!
any fool can make
laws!
bound to bend and break

dig!

truth!
not too hard to feign
thrall!
less and less arcane

dig!

disobey!

lead your rotted flock
the dumb and blind
frozen, numb and gray
all your patrons in decline

keep your lobby sated
they crawl and climb
blood and money tamed
aging faces smug and so sublime

as aristotle would say
some rule and others obey
no more, no less
it's innate

disobey!
Track Name: Goat Leaves
though i'm sure you had your reasons
there is nothing more you can say
every year it has seasons
even the tightest knots eventually fray

don't rouse the giant when he's sleeping
storms are headed for the shore
will you be eaten,
trying to get even?
cause you never could close that door

there's a funeral in the offing
there are no cards left you can play
when you finally smell the coffin
the stench of the rotten will never decay

don't rouse the giant when he's sleeping
storms are headed for the shore
will you be eaten,
trying to get even?
cause you never could close that door
Track Name: Dead Wrong
something is sitting in the room
elephants and shadows slowly starting to loom
vultures are waiting down the hall
eyeing carrion from the coming fall

with the hours growing late
you'll be the first in line to dodge your fate
thick foam and scum
the sickness brewing

as the man kicks at the throng
back in the dirt where you belong
when the hard times come
it's his undoing

cause you're dead wrong
dead wrong
dead (dead)
wrong
dead (dead)
wrong

as the fires burn and blaze
as the oceans boil and cities razed
when it's all undone
the wisemen rue it

and the maker wax and wanes
can't hear your cries
through the searing pain
when the end times come
the skies will prove it

cause you're dead wrong
dead wrong
dead (dead)
wrong
dead (dead)
wrong

the ride is ending soon
turning earth into endless dunes
the great, sacred womb
withered to dust
emerging a tomb

cause you're dead wrong
dead wrong
dead (dead)
wrong
dead (dead)
wrong

wait the crowning squall
the hovering gloom
the growing pall

ruin
coming for us all
the spreading cataclysm
the final crawl
Track Name: Zealots
is it healing?
the god shaped hole in your spine
and are you kneeling?
cowering reverence
frightened of your divine

all roads lead to rome
all roads lead to rome

no questions
that's what you're raised to believe
no discretion
the pride of the proverbs
'ask and ye shall receive'

all roads lead to rome
all roads lead to rome

all roads lead to rome
all roads lead to rome


travesty
heresy
valor
you're able
to banish the ethos of yesterday's wars
fairy tales
legends
myths and or fables
punish the orthodox mores of lore

all things are possible
the unthinkable waits.. and it waits

sorrow and pestilence
and the future looks grave... grave


through my eyes
time
and you follow the rest left to wander in deep in the night
and tomorrow you falter and fall to your knees and you cry
well we all want a perfect world and with courage we might
but all i can scream at you is
'the moment is ripe'

all roads lead to rome
all roads lead to rome
