The Surgeon

[verse #1]

  • A forest of tongues rooted deep in their sockets dry...silence
  • An army of eyes gazing round for some flaw to spy...violence
  • Twenty-five grand to reattach a retina...(in a) furnace
  • Twenty-five and out, and all the good it's getting you...burn this

[chorus]

  • I'm a pro, I'm a surgeon
  • Ice-cold veins, keep on working
  • White-hot pain, feel nothing at all

[verse #2]

  • The time I burned the armrest in the Mustang with a cigarette...junked it
  • The test that they gave to see if you were feeling it...flunked it
  • The latest in a series of biggest disappointments yet...waitress
  • Finally get it right, and there's no one left to witness it...hate this

Milk of Amnesia

[verse #1]

  • I was hoping for a ghost, but there was no ghost, because there are no ghosts
  • I was waiting for a sign, but there were no signs, because there are no signs
  • Can't recall how the night started, but I'll tell you for sure how it ended
  • Jumping out of the truck, screaming, 'you want some, come and get it'

[chorus]

  • Stand there, trembling, waiting outside the door
  • This ain't the miracle that I was praying for
  • No, this is where the story stops

[verse #2]

  • I was hoping you'd wake up, but you didn't wake up, because there was no hope
  • I was calm and I was tough, but it wasn't enough, I could've pissed up a rope
  • One regret, I didn't get to beat your sister to death when she heard me
  • Dried up whore ain't nothing more than the proof there's no God to desert me

Flora

[verse #1]

  • You keep bleeding through the fresher paint
  • Foggy like the halo on a saint
  • You can't be in my dreams anymore
  • You can't walk right in through the front door

[verse #2]

  • Of course you'd find me, where else would I be?
  • Thought you'd find your way back eventually
  • Standing, sipping coffee by the sink
  • Give yourself confusion, time to think

[verse #3]

  • You keep bleeding through the fresher paint
  • Lost, well, I can tell you where you ain't
  • You can't be in my dreams anymore
  • You can't walk right in through the front door

This Is My Money (And This Is My Mouth)

[verse #1]

  • This is my money and this is my mouth
  • This is the future, you'll figure it out
  • The oracle's spoken, the fever is broken, no holding back, no worry, no doubt
  •  
  • This is the prison that we call the past
  • This is the flag that still flies at half mast
  • The half-nervous glances, the barely missed chances, the moment that just slips by too fast

[chorus]

  • You may not know
  • But I'm not bluffing, look into my eyes
  • You may not know
  • But I'm not sorry, I won't apologize
  • Oh, and you may not know
  • Just where we're headed or where tomorrow lies
  • Oh, and you may not know
  • But I do, but I do

[verse #2]

  • This is a zero and this is a one
  • This is the future, and isn't it fun?
  • You may see some changes, experience strangeness, don't worry, you'll get used to it, son
  •  
  • This is the prophecy, still unfulfilled
  • These are the chances for which we'd have killed
  • On this very day and on this very site, they say that you can hear 'em here still

Jim Jones Country

[verse #1]

  • Can I get a hallelujah, can I get an amen?
  • Lemme tell you how we done it here since way back when
  • People get a bad idea, then they try it again
  • Pretty sure it must be something in the water

[chorus #1]

  • Do it for Jesus or do it for free
  • Keep a round in the chamber, and save one for me
  • So now let's take a peek behind door number three, and we'll see
  • Hot damn, this is Jim Jones country, baby!

[verse #2]

  • Even back in the beginning, I knew that something was wrong
  • People shaking hands and smiling and just playing along
  • Even then, I knew we couldn't keep this charade up long
  • Even then, I knew they kinda shouldn't oughta

[chorus #2]

  • So let's raise a glass to the soon to be past
  • Bottoms up real quick 'cuz it's gonna go fast
  • Take a good look around, 'cuz this ain't gonna last, here we go
  • Hot damn, this is Jim Jones country, baby!

The Smart and the Lucky

[verse #1]

  • Wary glares from across the room
  • Icy stares slice through the gloom
  • Let me whisper in your ear
  • Lean in close so you can hear

[pre-chorus]

  • For the smart, and the lucky...

[verse #2]

  • Now they say the sky will fall
  • End the good days for us all
  • Lean in close next to your ear
  • Whisper soft so they can't hear

[chorus]

  • For the smart, and the lucky
  • There's always room

[verse #3]

  • Let them point, and let 'em gawk
  • All they know to do is talk
  • Let my fingers brush your hand
  • Somewhere out there's promised land

[chorus]

  • For the smart, and the lucky
  • There's always room

Amasia

[verse #1]

  • Houses where we used to live
  • Cities where we must've been
  • Hundreds of memories, thousands of memories, that I still can't picture myself in

  • Cities built on coral reef
  • Calendars carved in bas relief
  • Hundreds of days, thousands of years
  • Frozen in single moments

[pre-chorus]

  • Good news, well, the past can be erased
  • Given the earth's relentlessly shifting face
  • What in the world have we been working for
  • When all we have to do is wait some more?

[chorus]

  • You'd never have known there was ocean between us once

[verse #2]

  • Strip malls now instead of woods
  • Bare lots where the school stood
  • It all looks different, all smells different,
  • Can't even recognize it

  • Render all my memories false
  • Hollower than sheet rock walls
  • Grind them to dust and blow them away and
  • No one would ever notice

[pre-chorus]

  • Good news, well, the past can be erased
  • Given the earth's relentlessly shifting face
  • What in the world have we been working for
  • When all we have to do is wait some more?

[chorus]

  • You'd never have known there was ocean between us once

Death Shuts Its Mouth

[verse #1]

  • A shiny vine that climbs up the side and grinds all the mortar out
  • A tiny worm that winds through your mind and tunnels deep throughout
  • A photograph in fading color, a bruise that's yet to bloom
  • Death slowly shuts its mouth and ups to leave the room

[verse #2]

  • A little shiver that soon proves feverish, shaking, sweating for air
  • A magician's swift illusion, a hope that was never there
  • A scalpel in a shaking hand, a clotting pool of doubt
  • Death slowly shakes his head, 'cuz he'll sit this one out
