intro with Mike Bastard

lyrics

(they say this is the city, the city of roses, all I see are dead leaves)
I really, really wanna burn this whole place down
but the rain will come put it out
everyone in this broken town
is so enlightened, so profound, and ironic
although some things may be out of my control
I am wondrous with intent
I am fluent in sorrow
so save me the rhetoric
I don't have the energy for your shit
they say grief will make you decompose
"cuz yer just sick with society"
body's rejecting
the intruders
sound the alarm
body's not complete
without spirit
or this old charm
all of my able friends are hittin the streets today
and I'm stuck in bed again
floating away
everything has meaning but nothing makes sense
about a broken vessel workin at the expense
of this whole universe - it sings
and feel about everything
we're in the kitchen
in the garden
sewing up seems
we're dressing up for protection
spitting hexes out on our enemies
rendezvous with spirits
my mind is like a cemetery
it's getting crowded
in the space
a little more every day
go on, clean up yer mess
get yer house in order
oh, what to do with all this spare strength
my body is wasting away
we stir with such emotion
cry for no reason at all
bury it in the sand
build an anchor and enjoy the fall
all of my able friends are hitting the streets today
and I am stuck in bed again
floating away
I'll start a riot at my alter
start a riot, start a riot, start a riot, start a riot
I'll start a riot at my alter
instead
body's rejecting
the intruders
sound the alarm
body's not complete
without spirit
or this old charm
(please rate your pain
from one to ten
please put a number
on yer suffering)
