Suite-Pee

I had an out of body experience the other day, her name was Jesus
And for her everyone cried, everyone cried, everyone cried

Try her philosophy, try her philosophy, try her philosophy, try
You die for her philosophy, die for her philosophy, die her philosophy, die.

Crossed and terrored ravages of architecture, lend me thy blades
We're crossed and terrored ravages or architecture, hoist around the spade

Try her philosophy, try her philosophy, try her philosophy, try
You die for her philosophy, die for her philosophy, die her philosophy, die.

DIE!...DIE!...DIE!...WHY!
Lie naked on the floor and let the Messiah go through our souls
Lie naked on the floor and let the Messiah go all through our souls
DIE! (like a mother fucker), DIE! (like a mother fucker), DIE! (like a mother fucker), WHY! (like a mother fucker)
I want to fuck my way to the garden, cuz everyone needs a mother... FUCKER!

The following of a Christ, the following of a Christ, the following of a Christ, the following of a Christ
The falling of Christ, the falling of Christ, the falling of Christ, the falling of Christ.

Know

Cursed earth!, Cursed earth!, Cursed earth!, Cursed earth!

I will never feed off the evergreen luster of your heart all because we all live in the valley of the walls
When they speak we can peek from the windows of their mouths to see the land women chant as the fly up to the sun

You never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know why
Go, go, go!

Books all say different things while people flap their yellow wings
trying to soar by being a whore of life and almost everything
the sheep that ran off from the herd may be dead but now's a bird
able to fly, able to die, able to fuck your mother's earth

You never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know why
No.....

On the other side....
The other side.......
The other side.....

Did you ever try to fly? Did you ever try to fly?
Have you ever wanted to die? Have you ever wanted to die?
Don't ever try to fly, don't ever try to fly
Don't ever try to fly unless you leave your body on the other side
Never try to die, did you ever try to die?

No, you never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know WHY!
No, you never think you know why
NO!!!!

Sugar

The Kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day
WHO can believe you?, WHO can believe you?
Let your mother pray

(Sugar)

(Sugar)

I'm not there all the time, you know some people, some people, some people call it insane, yeah they call it insane (sugar)
I play Russian roulette everyday, a man's sport, with a bullet called life, yeah momma called life (sugar)
You know that everytime I try to go where I really want to be, it's already where I am, cuz I'm already there (sugar)

The Kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day
WHO can believe you?, WHO can believe you?
Let your mother pray

(Sugar)

I got a gun the other day from Sako, it's cute, it's small, fits right in my pocket, yeah right in my pocket (sugar)
My girl, you know, she lashes out at me sometimes, and I just fucking kick her and then ooooh baby, she's ok (sugar)
People are always chasing me down, trying to push my face to the ground, where all they really want to do is suck out my mother fucking brains, my brains (sugar)

The Kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day
WHO can believe you?, WHO can believe you?
Let your mother pray

I sit
In my desolate room
No lights
No music
JUST ANGER!
I've killed everyone
I'm away forever
But I'm feeling better

How do I feel? What do I say? Fuck you it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? Fuck you it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? In the end it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? In the end it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? In the end it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? In the end it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? In the end it all goes away
How do I feel? What do I say? In the end it all goes away
In the end it all goes away
In the end it all goes away
In the end it all goes away
In the end it all goes away

Suggestions

Watching, from a post up high, from where you see the ships afar
From a well trained eye, the waves all keep on crashing by
If you are the light post, then you own the working class
But if you want the answers, YOU BETTER GIVE A PIECE OF YOUR ASS!!
Give a piece of your ass

Warning, post-hypnotic suggestions, running the ships ashore
The orange light that follows, will soon proclaim itself a God
If you point your questions, the fog will surely chew you up
But if you want the answers, YOU BETTER GET READY FOR THE FIRE!!
Get ready for the fire.....OOOOOOOOOOOH!!

The ships are multiplying day after day sir, and they're coming close to the shore sir, shore sir
We need to evacuate the light post, it's all over
OVER!!!!!!!
It's all over
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
OOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Spiders

The piercing radiant moon
The storming of poor June
All the life running through her hair

Approaching guiding light
Our shallow years in fright
Dreams are made winding through my head

Through my head
Before you know, awake

Your lives (legs?) are open wide
The V-Chip gives them sight
Of all the life running through her hair

The spiders all in tune
The evening of the moon
Dreams are made winding through my head

Through my head
Before you know, awake

Through my head...........
Through my head..............................
Before................ you know.................... oh oh oh oh oh oh oh..........
Before........... you know I will be waiting awake

Dreams are made winding through her hair
Dreams are made winding through her hair......

DDevil

Plagiarized existence exists
Among writers of the word
Shake your SPEAR at ShakeSPEARE
Shake your SPEAR at ShakeSPEARE

Loud and noisy
Strong refrigirators
Gaining independence
Gaining independence

Stupid do stupid things
Smart people outsmart each other
Then themSELVES, then themSELVES
Then themselves, then themselves

Take me down there
Photographic relapse
People feeding frenzy
The devil is so lovely

(Weird sounds)

My blue moon rivets in exits
Forewarned customary spirits
By mySELF, by mySELF
By myself, by myself

Take me down there
Photographic relapse
People feeding frenzy
The devil is so lovely

Take me down there
Photographic relapse
People feeding frenzy
The devil is so lovely

Soil

The phoenix he helped create
Out of control boy without a dad
SHOT THE GUN THAT STARTLED MY.............. LIFE!!
While I drove him with a 45

Making a decision of death while everyone around you pled, now you fly in peace, I hope, my friend
A man can't avoid what he's meant to do when he's meant to do it, even if he doesn't really want to
My memories are of fun and friendship of weakness within the strength of youth for reasons undefined, reasons undefined, reasons undefined, reasons undefined

War?

Dark is the light, and then you fight
With all your prayers, incantations
Running away, a trivial day
Of judgement and deliverance
To whom was sold, this bounty soul
A gentile or a priest?
Who victored over, the Seljuks
When the holy land was taKEN!

We will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens

Was it the riches of the land?
Powers of bright darkness?
That lead the noble to the East
To fight the HEATHENS

We will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, we will fight the HEATHENS!
No we will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens
No we will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens

We must call upon our bright darkness
Beliefs, they're the bullets of the wicked
One was written on the sword
For you must enter a room to DESTROY IT, DESTROY IT, DESTROY IT
No international security
No call of the righteous man
Needs a reason to kill man
History teaches us so
The reason he must attain
Must be approved by his God
His CHILD, partisan brother of war
Of war
We don't speak anymore of war
We don't speak anymore of war
We don't speak anymore of war
We don't speak ANYMORE!

We will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens
We will fight the heathens, we will fight the HEATHENS!
No we will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens
No we will fight the heathens, we will fight the heathens

Mind
