Track Name: Wake
Since the beginning of recorded history, mankind has always been ruled by those behind the curtain who sought power – sacrificing the free will of those ruled by their totalitarian dynasties. Only ‘til now has their reign over humanity been challenged; only ‘til now will their stranglehold come to an end.
Track Name: Betty Phage Goes to Bronxton
How many licks can you take with the lemmings?
Maybe enough to find your chewy center, but it's
Bazooka bile, microscopic homicide.
Somewhere along the shores of the city,
The new shipment of power-ups and yummy stars
Got neglected and soured – they ate it anyway.

Now, the cavalry has arrived,
Ohhh, the glory of death on eight wheels.

heheHAHAHAHAHAHA

The security of disease is compelling,
But then, you’ll find, sanity ain’t pretty baby--
Can’t hide your soul in a gift shop fanny pack.
The creepy crawlers ooze from the ceiling,
Looking for cash and power over innocents;
Extermination can, and should, be a two-way street.
Universal Consciousness,
Yeah.

When the plague is over, we will set a fire – light the night up.
When the fire eats the land up, it will not hurt us.

It's Betty Phage, with a can of ass-whoopin’ and a bat--
Better find cover for your bitch-ass and a bunch of friends.
Here comes Betty Phage rollin’ up to Bronxton – and we're glad
To be liberated from a quarantined eternity in glass.
Once upon a time, in Hell,
A scrappy little princess awoke, and she said, “HEY… get out of my face.”

Greedy, filthy, fucker – you'd better watch your back
As we rise up from the swamp of mind-leeching bacteria.
Hey, here comes Betty Phage!

It’s been so grand servicing this land.
Now, all the other buggers must…
Die.
Track Name: I AM
You want to level the Earth?
Not so fast…
First off, we’ll settle in.
Games won’t be played, but we win.
Because there are different hats for different cats.
Sit back down with the table of mutts.
Keep my head down – below the trees.
Drop another bomb on my energies.
If I die before I fall,
Jockey up the Pegasus with Mr. Ed,
Buckle up your brain with the safety belt,
Otherwise, you'll be having crazy dreams…

And I've gone too far – it's only I AM...
But I’ve drowned in clouds,
And falling further up.
(Hey Hey Hey)
So I’ve gone too far – it’s only I AM...
But it feels so good to call this moment “now”…
So long.

Key lime pie with a rusty spoon--
Cut my mouth when I eat my food.
Fabricate my reality,
Just like you, every single day.
Driver, float me to the ball?
Itty-bitty, pumpkin-powered god.
Devil from Los Angeles--
Nothing like a job from a monogamous whore.
Big, bad man-boy on the street,
Sniffing other monkeys below my feet.
Skip 12 tracks on the record player--
Skip a ticket line to see what’s already there.
My enlarged and humble head
Doesn’t need a shrink – he’s paying rent in there.
My self-made, neon circus bar
Needs another freak – it needs you my friend…

And I've gone too far--
(What about it?)
It's only I AM…
But I’ve drowned in clouds - illuminated gems.
(Hey, Hey, Hey)
So I’ve gone too far – it’s only I AM…
But it feels so good to call this moment “now”…

Rise with the rain as it refills gods’ eyes.
Right now, as we tame giants with but a thought,
The thirteen wonders of a human
Mind – with the flames dripping right on your third lid,
Burn all preconceived notions, leaving the eye.
You’ve got the space… do you got the time?
Track Name: Sideways Bird
Rather odd
In appearance,
Rather farther than near us.
Truthfully I cannot recall
The origin or technique of
My oblique style--
I lost the map.

First ride hitched on a glitch - am I coming or going?
Insanity photographed consciousness flowing.
Discount tricks shaped like bits from the back corner store man.
Liquid crime - amplified to extract and delete even more. / Quick-queued quanta quite effective but not necessary for flying. / Deja vu chopped in thirds and visible to those who want to know.

Knowledge dropped on you all tonight.

Rather high
On the ceiling,
Yea I'd die for the feeling.

Truthfully I cannot recall
The origin or technique of
My oblique smile--
I lost the map.

Simplify your fun.
Progress is a drug.
Safer on the run.
Crucify your love.
Track Name: Give Gravity a Choice
In one, stark sentiment,
All the world explained to me.
Where we walk, a window
Where our steps tread silently.
In one moment, we can see
And feel almost everything.
We will live no more when the sun rises where it should set.
(It will... it has)

Here, the only way is north--
Such an endless road to take when you're out of time.
I am sorry you regret,
But there is nothing to be done,
So just levitate.

Light cannot contemplate itself unless it is gone.
(No)

See, this memory seems to hurt,
But with more time, it will help to set you free.
When such rules hinder our legs,
There is an obligation to distract the book…

Or, have we ill-conceived notions of true freedom?
Endless souls gathered in limbo,
Whoring singed wings in exchange for memories.

In one, stark sentiment,
All the world explained to me.
Where we walk, a window
Where our steps tread silently--
All one…

Observe the fall as you are, and never hit the ground…
Track Name: White Phoenix
My edified children listen please – time is short, I require your attention now!
One gust of wind from your enemies--
To get up high for that world to see me shine, yeah?
This nest will cradle the masses of sickened, emaciated emotions
They will realize what they once were--
Or should be…

This broken flesh reveals a core that glows.
By the light, revealed like a symphony, we prepare for the hour of change.

The secret war inside of you falls (beside you).

We’ve had enough waking to sleep – give me the real thing.
Somebody step forward, to show that it would be ok.
What is the price of moving on? We ain't afraid now.
Proudly, we pull the light from the stone – brighter than sunlight.

This broken flesh reveals a core that glows.
By the light, revealed like a symphony, we prepare for the hour of change.

Even a sea of lies can't engulf one's innermost truth.

Every new day, every new vision, every mistake--
Death is an illusion; a lie.

May the burdened rise from the ashes.

This broken flesh reveals a core that glows.
By the light, revealed before history,
You will lose it all, but know there's been a change.

To live so free – the skies envious.
You teach us hope – the rays of white and gold.
To live so free - the skies envious.
You teach no fear – the rays of white and gold.
To live so free – the skies envious.
You teach within the rays of white and gold.
To live so free – the skies envious.
You teach the world – the flames of white and gold.
Track Name: Sleep
Since the beginning...
