written in Okinawa


Do not flatter me with your flattery
behind those eyes, I see the demon's monetary bribery
Oil determined politics and financially governed lies
repetitive inhibitions are sterility
in the instability of your force fed lies
manifest destiny, determinism, the world is yours and no ones
water wars and refugee camps, you cannot threaten me
with a shortage of funds, through the bullets in your gun

So let's genetically modify our food to feed the starving
offer ourselves to peace through war
let's forget who we are, where we came from, and enter the revolving door
pot-bellied pigs in tuxedo trenchcoats observe the obscurity of this song
take a deep breath now it won't be long
unable to comprehend anything further take a step back and say
oh my god

oh my darlin'

oh my god

the cat cleans itself atop the case of an upright bass
modesty lies in the eyes of the beholder
I can see you have gotten tired from the strain
look at this crazy world in which electricity produces the flame
by which we sit fully clothed and warm our metal bones
what is wood when forests are gone and computers build our homes
look at this new universe where parallel would be random
shades of grey

Cigarette butts scatter the alleyways
where children grow wings and fairies play
smoke rings shatter the battered forte
that swings from the string of the fidgeting pigeon's foul play
sugar and splice and technological force
education is now a corporation in this grave new world's revolving door

My darlin'
Oh my darlin'
oh my god

Their music is literally addictive as well as intoxicating, and although they might have mainstream pop fans bewildered by their sound, they will equally inspire passion and devotion from those in the know… ... more
