Track Name: Rotten Man
Well there's bags under my eyes
Burn marks on my skin
But it comes as no suprise
To a Rotten Man

Rotten Man
Couldn't give a good goddamn

And ever since then,
Ain't seen no friends
I've been longing, I've been crying
I've been sleeping, I've been dying
Still ain't found no one ever, no one

When the poison starts seeping
And the ganglia weeping
You feel it in your plexus
When the Rotten Man come creeping
But this comes as no suprise
To a Rotten Man

Rotten Man
Couldn't give a good goddamn

Oh no, baby
I don't think you know just how Rotten I am
Do you know the Rotten Man?
From Rotterdam?

Rotten Man
Couldn't give a good goddamn about how you made me who I am.

Motherfuckers, you know it is what it is
Go back to my..little place where I can see what I be
I didn't choose, I didn't try
To make a life of how I want to die
When the feelings cease to feel,
You begin to cease what is real

So when you hear the floorboard creaking
Then you'll know just what to be seeking,
Oh caper baby
Track Name: Yesod
Hey Mack, you know that he ain't ever coming back
But hey, you still got me anyway.
I know, that ain't much, but so?
Tell me about it
You got something on your mind, no doubt about it
Oh

Some may feel no criticism can be made of pure religious faith.
That may be true, but it's the folly of the faith.
In dogmatic authority...that is at issue, really.
And needs only the memory of political faiths
From liberal laissez-faire to Marxist determinism.
Track Name: Up Above My Head
Well the fire, it needs a-stoking
And the piper needs a token ("And the pipe, it needs a-toking")
And it's my time to spark the night
I feel it when I see it rise
Up above my head so high

Up above my head
Up above my head
Ain't no sense in coming out
Up above my head
Once you've made it past getting in
Up above my head so high

Welcome back to weary times
The trails of dreary hearts and eyes
The fractured skulls of damaged minds
They felt it when they saw it rise

Up above my head
Up above my head
Up above my head
Ain't no sense in coming out
Up above my head
Once you've made it past getting in
Up above my head so high

Ooo rising
Oooo rising
Oooooo rising
Ooooooooo rising
Way down

Up above my head
Up above my head
Up above my head
Track Name: Coolit Revelettes
Death, and sandals, and hatred.
It's a bright line I find between me and the dream.
But sometimes I get it right.
Let's not intend to be selfish,
We are all beautiful human beings
If you jive, come and sing with me.

You'll find the rights you try to find
Refined behind some veal and swine.
Holding the signs that advertise and
Tantalize and raise the standards of his drothers.

Flying down upon the crown of my demon turtle
A demon's just as glad to be
As free as any other entity.
An aspect just as subtle
As the Dream.

You'll find the rights you try to find
Refined behind some veal and swine.
Holding the signs that advertise and
Tantalize and raise the standards of his drothers
Motherfuckers.
Track Name: Sono Field Chant
Eight slaps to the face, you dirty boy
Play around with that fire you'll be destroyed
All you can learn to do is kick the can
Till your standing in the mirror with the ROTTEN MAN
A rotten rotten rotten rotten rotten man

Keep a close ear to the queer sneering jeering in your breast, boy
Take a step beyond your fine lines and rejoice
It's a ragged situation; got you learning through your troubles with the sinners
Sowing hatred and the kingdom's burn to rubble
Finnancial situation's like a place where people struggle with mushrooms in the afternoon.
What a strange thing to do.
That's what I'm saying to you,
Stew in your scuba stew

Swooning in the courtyard
Wondering if the boneyard is coming down
Track Name: Dirty Lowdown
It's time somebody tell me and all of you
It's time you heard the godawful truth
Don't be misled by what some suit said
Who'll take you to the grave or take you to bed
If you won't let me in, that's alright...I guess

I think I'm already in
It's your call; Whose who?
Yeah, I don't get much sunlight.
It's kind of hard when I'm here.
And I don't got no sage advice
I can't be relied on like you
But when I feel it kick in, that's when I turn to you
That man, he's a friend, but I guess you know him, too
Better do it while I can, while I'm still a child, too
Say "I don't know where you are"
Just don't check...

And all these lies that I've been told
I took to heart
And what you say is together
Is still apart
And as you're standing at your door
But I can't hear you now
Oh I'm...
Track Name: It Is Beneath You (The Volume)
(Johann:)
Four o'clock in the morning
Sunrise with my friends
Until the end
More miles for me
So I can be free
From cold in the morning

(Austin:)
AaaaaaaaaaAaaaeeeeeee!
The digital scream ping-pongs your way out the door
Forget what you've heard
It's worse than before
You're not safe when your house is alive
And you hear it breathing
You'll feel the air between your teeth seething
To and fro
Wow

(Sahar:)
Even,
Even when I'm fallen
Even when I'm fallen
You are next to me
Oh

Don't ever
Resist the inner-child within
You will see
That you are
You're just the water underneath

(Johann:)
We are just the water
The water underneath

(Sahar:)
Just the water, just the water
Underneath it all
All

(indistinguishable dialogue*)

Will some bless
Temptress

El perro
este

There is time for us
But it is not know, I guess

(Austin:)
Can't brighten up their future
Tighten up that suture
Pack up the rest of my clothes
I think it's time I'm
It's finally time that I'm trying to go back
I'm coming back
I know for real this time that I'm
Coming back
To where it all along
Comes to find that I am coming back
To Africa
Here I am
In Africa
