Track Name: SILVER BARS
SILVER BARS

THE MOON IS SLOWING HER GROWING
I CAN FEEL IT.
I KNOW IT.
(THROWING DOWN HER LIGHT TONIGHT)
ALREADY SHOWING. MY PUPILS ARE GLOWING
I’M READY FOR THE TRANSFORMATION
SOLD IT ALL
AND SPENT MY SAVINGS
FLOOR TO CEILING SILVER BARS
IN THE CORNER OF MY BASEMENT

ALL EVENING DOWN IN THE CAGE
I’VE HAD SO MANY
IT’S FRIGHTENING
(DRANK A FEW DOWN TONIGHT)
BIG JAR OF UNCLE JOHNNY’S WHITE LIGHTNING
ABOUT TO DROWN THAT BAD BEAST DOWN
DON’T CARE IF I
DRINK ‘TIL I DIE
AIN’T WORRIED ’BOUT NO HANGOVER
JUST THE DANGER FROM THE CHANGEOVER

BLIND DRUNK AND RABID DON’T MIX WELL
I BENT THEM HOT AND WIDE
TO TOUCH THEM BURNED LIKE HELL
BUT NOW I GET TO GO OUTSIDE

SILVER BARS SHINING DOWN
ON THE CROWN
OF THE MOUNTAIN
(RUN FOR YOUR LIFE TONIGHT)
SAID YOU WERE LEAVING YESTERDAY
BUT NOW I SMELL YOU
A MILE AWAY
I’LL STALK YOU IN THE DARK AWHILE
AND CHASE YOU DOWN
WITH MOONSHINE
Track Name: RELAX AND RELAPSE
WE HAVE A PROBLEM. WE PRETEND
WE MADE A PACT. IT WAS THE END
BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN
YOU SAY YOU JUST NEED A FRIEND
AND I COME RUNNING AGAIN

LAST TIME I SAW YOU, TRIED MY BEST
YOU PLAYED THE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS
KEPT MY HANDS TO MYSELF
BUT WHEN YOU TOOK OFF YOUR DRESS
I HAD A FEELING WE WERE GONNA REGRESS

YOU SAID
I NEED YOU TO FIX MY CONDITION
AND WITH YOUR PERMISSION
WE’LL GIVE THIS RESTRICTION THE AXE

PERHAPS
YOU’LL UNFASTEN MY SNAPS
AND STRAPS
SIT BACK, RELAX
AND RELAPSE.

28 DAYS THINK I’M FINE
SOMEONE TO KEEP YOU OFF MY MIND
BUT A LITTLE GLIMPSE OF YOUR DANGEROUS DIMPLES
SEEMS TO PENETRATE MY DREAMS

SEEING YOU TONIGHT, I MUST CONFESS
DON’T FEEL LIKE KEEPING IT REPRESSED
UNDER YOUR SPELL, I GUESS.
A RECIPE FOR SUCCESS IS SOMETHING
I DON’T THINK WE’LL EVER POSSESS
Track Name: SLOW BURN
SLOW BURN

YOU’VE BEEN BAD
AND NOW YOU HAVE TO
SUFFER THE SLOW BURN
INFERNAL AND ETERNAL
NEVER TO RETURN

BEHOLD THE SOULS OF OLD
PAYING A PENANCE
BOW DOWN, FOR THE CROWNED
PRINCE OF VENGEANCE
IS MAKING HIS ENTRANCE
AND ALL IN ATTENDANCE,
WHEN WE ADJOURN,
WILL SUFFER THE SLOW BURN

ALL CONDEMNED
TO PUNISHMENT
HEAVY AND HEARTLESS
HERE INSIDE THE WALLS
OF RIGOR MORTIS FORTRESS

THE GATE OF HATE AWAITS
A TORTUROUS TURNSTILE
DESIGNED TO GNASH AND GRIND
WITH VENOMOUS VIOLENCE
AND A SULFUROUS SILENCE
NOW GET IN LINE
SINCE IT’S YOUR TURN
TO SUFFER THE SLOW BURN

THIS IS THE KETTLE
BETTER GET SETTLED IN
THERE WILL BE NO INTERROGATION
WE KNOW JUST WHAT YOU DID
Track Name: INTRA-DIMENSIONAL BLEEDING
INTRA-DIMENSIONAL BLEEDING

ATTENTION!
THIRD DIMENSION
PREPARE YOURSELVES
THERE’S NO PREVENTION
IT’S THE TIME OF THE ASCENSION

EYE IN THE SKY
A GLOWING CLOUD
ASH AND EMBERS
CINDERS RAINING DOWN
A BILLION VOICES BARELY SOUND

ALL WILL FLASH BEFORE YOUR EYES
VANISH AND VAPORIZE

EXPONENTIAL HEATING
AND TIME IS SPEEDING
TO INFINITE REPEATING
INTRA-DIMENSIONAL BLEEDING

THE SPACE BETWEEN ALL THINGS
COMPRESSES AT THE STRINGS
AND SENDS THE TENSION
BEYOND HUMAN COMPREHENSION
Track Name: LILLIPUTIAN REVOLUTION (SING IT IN YOUR HEAD)
LILLIPUTIAN REVOLUTION (SING IT IN YOUR HEAD)

DECLARE YOURSELF AN INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN NATION!
NOT UNDER THIS
OR ANY GOVERNMENT’S PERSUASION
YOU’RE ALWAYS GIVING
WHY ARE YOU STILL LIVING
WITH THE UNFORGIVING
OPPRESSORS’
PHANTOM PRESSURE
KEEPING YOU SUPPRESSED?

A LILLIPUTIAN REVOLUTION IN THE MAKING
WE’LL GIVE IT ALL
WE HAVE TO GIVE
WE’RE NOT FORSAKEN
“YOUR MONEY OR YOUR SOUL”
IS NOT OUR GOAL
ONLY TO SHARE THE TREASURE
SO LET US BAND TOGETHER
TIE THE GIANT DOWN
Track Name: CHARMED ONES
CHARMED ONES

HEY THE CHARMED ONES ARE KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR
THEY SAY THEY JUST WANNA SEE YOUR FACE SOME MORE

YOU COULD GO OUT FOR A RIDE
HIDE BEHIND YOUR MAKEUP
BUT YOU LOCK YOURSELF INSIDE
YOU JUST CAN’T TAKE ANOTHER BREAKUP

HEY THE CHARMED ONES ARE HANGING ON THE LINE
THEY SAY THEY JUST WANNA SHARE YOUR SPACE AND TIME

YOU TURN ‘EM DOWN RIGHT WHEN THEY START
TO TRY TO PUT THE SQUEEZE ON
THEY DON’T KNOW YOUR SHIVERING HEART
IS WORKING HARD TO KEEP THE FREEZE ON

WILL YOU LET THEM IN YOUR LIGHT
WHERE THERE’S SOMETHING MISSING?
HAVE YOU TOLD THEM WHAT YOU LIKE
IS NOTHING MORE THAN KISSING?
Track Name: SON OF THE MORNING (TOKEN DEVIL BALLAD)
SON OF THE MORNING (TOKEN DEVIL BALLAD)

JUST BEFORE THE SUNRISE
THE STAR WAS CLIMBING HIGH
TO BUILD HIS THRONE
WHERE NONE HAD FLOWN
ABOVE THE SPARKLE OF THE SKY

THEY’D ASSEMBLED ALL AROUND HIM
IN THE NIGHT BEFORE HIS FLIGHT
HE DID RESEMBLE
THE ALMIGHTY
AND THEY TREMBLED WITH DELIGHT

REPENT OR BE FOREVER CONDEMNED
THE SON OF THE MORNING
WAS GIVEN HIS WARNING
INTENT ON HIS UNHOLY ASCENT
ALL IN THE NAME OF GLORY

A THIRD OF ALL THE ANGELS
PRAISING THEIR NEW KING
BEGAN TO SING
AND BEAT THEIR WINGS
RINGING THE GLEAMING BELLS OF FREEDOM

THE ALMIGHTY HEARD THE WORDS
AND LEARNED THE JOURNEY HAD BEGUN
HE CHANNELED ALL HIS HOLY FURY
INTO THE RED AND RIPENING SUN

HE BURNED THE WINGS OF THE DECEIVER
WITH A BRILLIANT BLAZING BEAM
THEN TURNED IT ON THE DISBELIEVERS
CHANGED THEIR SINGING INTO SCREAMS

THERE WAS A CRY THROUGHOUT CREATION
HOW THEY WEPT AND HOW THEY MOURNED
WHEN SENT TO BURN
THEIR HALOS SHORN
THE MORNING EVIL WAS BORN

AND IT’S BEEN SO LONG FOR THAT OLD FALLEN ANGEL
HE WAS BANISHED AND ESTRANGED
HE WAS CAST INTO THE FLAMES
Track Name: PYROCLASTIC BLUES
PYROCLASTIC BLUES

DON’T STAND TOO CLOSE. I’M UNDER PRESSURE
A FURNACE BURNIN’ IN ME
MOSTLY HUMBLE ‘LESS YOU WANNA RUMBLE
KRAKATOA AIN’T GOT NOTHING ON ME.

I SEEN YOU SNOOPIN’ AROUND HERE.
MUST BE A SIGN OF THE TIMES
STEP UP, GET SCHOOLED, FOOL
ON MOTHER NATURE’S DESTRUCTIVE DESIGN

NOT GONNA BREAK DOWN I AM GONNA BREAK OPEN
MY TEMPERATURE IS MOLTEN
ONLY DESTRUCTIVE WHEN I’M FEELING ERUPTIVE
AND MY TEMPER’S BARELY HOLDING OUT

I’M GONNA MAKE AN IMPRESSION
IF I DECIDE TO LET OFF SOME STEAM
DON’T WANNA BLOW MY STACK, JACK, GET BACK
I MAKE ONE HELL OF A SCENE

YOU GLIMPSE ME STARTING TO VENT
AND IN ONE INSTANT
YOU’RE IN FOR ONE INCENDIARY INCIDENT
IGNEOUS IGNITION IS NOT MY INTENTION
THERE’S JUST NO HOLDING IT IN

I’M GONNA LIGHT ONE UP
KNOCK YOUR LIGHTS OUT
A MOLTEN CENTER
TEMPER DON’T BURN OUT
THIS OLD DEFENDER’S BEEN
10 MILLION ROUNDS
THERE’S NO CONTENDER’S
EVER PUT ME OUT
Track Name: SERENITY OF INFINITY
SERENITY OF INFINITY

WOKE THIS MORNING TO A SUNBEAM
SHINING IN ON ME
WATCHED IT RIPPLE WITH MY BREATHING
BRIGHT AND GLISTENING

FROZEN FROM A DREAM THAT SEEMED
TO LAST NEARLY A YEAR
WITH OPEN EYES AND SLOWING SIGHS
SO PLEASED TO BE RIGHT HERE.

NEVER WILL ERASE THE PAST.
OR REPLACE IT WITH THE FUTURE
THAT TOO WON’T LAST
PRESENT TENSE AND ALL ITS CONTENTS
EVERLASTING AND VAST

GILDED THREADS SUSPENDING ME
DOWN FROM MY WINDOW PANE
WASHING ‘CROSS MY BODY
LIKE A RADIATING RAIN

TIME IS PASSING WITH
THE GENTLE FLASHING OF THE LIGHT
MENTAL MEDICATION
IN A MEDITATIVE FLIGHT

WHAT I FIND, ENTWINED IN SUNSHINE’S GOLDEN STRINGS, IS:
THE SERENITY OF INFINITY IS ENSHRINED IN ALL THINGS

SHOULD I FIND MY MIND IS DIVING
INTO THE GREAT SEVERE
SURVIVING THE STEADY ARRIVING
OF THE CLOUDY AND UNCLEAR

I WILL SURRENDER TO MY CENTER
ILLUMINATING SPHERE
FLY WITH THE FRIGHTENING
ALONG THE BRIGHTENING
LINE OF THE FRONTIER
