Track Name: ACT I
It's about to be
so fucked up in here

I'm a blood red dripping
yellow wallpaper peeling
itty bits of brain
go dancing to the ceiling

and you may never notice
until you get over a certain shock
that being
decapitation

it's about to be
so fucked up in here

you see that priest outside
waiting to question his profession?
I'll make damn sure he leaves this room
with his psyche limping

and please try to remember
that your fingers crossed 'to a crucifix
it don't mean shit
no it don't mean shit

it's about to be
so fucked up in here

I got a ton of bile
little child I've been waiting to hawk
I can redecorate in a second
all I gotta do is talk (I'm talking to you)

It's about to be!
I never dreamed it could be!
so fucked up in here…
Track Name: PECULIAR WEATHER PATTERNS
(Instrumental)
Track Name: AS IF GHOST
there you are
standing in the light of the morning
though you are gaunt
as if ghost!

there you are
I was so lost at first
but now I see you
everywhere I go!
Track Name: A DIRE SITUATION DIMINISHES (w OLD TIME HONEY)!
Do you the viewer
have any idea?

do you as the reader
really know?

and do you
loyal listener
show any contradictions
to the door?

Cos there’s a whole lotta people
tellin’ a whole lotta lies

only by virtue of ignorance
can you see the magic inside!

I’ve got a pen and pad
run for your lives

And how do you
know what’s really real?

capital R’s are so hard
to come by

So when you’re lost
In some starry state

do not pause
to determine the how or the why!
Track Name: THE SPINNING URN
(Instrumental)
Track Name: BAILA' MUERTE BAILA'
when night comes I play dead with death
cuando llega la noche
toco muerto con la muerte

his lifeless breath is the cold wind
su aliento sin vida
es el viento mas frio

like a man waiting for his true love
como un hombre que'espera
a su amor verdadero

death dances around you and me
muerte baila contigo y conmigo

but when it turns around
pero cuando se le da la vuelta/espalda

we take a little peek
abrimos nuestros ojos un pocito

death dances around you and me
muerte baila contigo y conmigo

oh he doesn't like it when we look
y no le gusta que
cuando miramos

he's just a little man under a mask
el es solo un pequeño
hombre detrás de un vestido

no more a monster than a mouse
no es un monstruo
que un raton

death dances around you and me
muerte baila contigo y conmigo

but when it turns around
pero cuando se le da la vuelta/espalda

we take a little peek
abrimos nuestros ojos un pocito
death dances around you and me
muerte baila contigo y conmigo

no I'm not scared of anything
no, yo tengo
miedo a nada

I love you mother
te amo madre

so don't be afraid of anything
así que no tengas
miedo de nada
Track Name: FAVORITE AUNT
Auntie hollis came to stay the week
the burden of Maria's state belongs to me
though I'm afraid
of what she'll say
"ella es un diablo!"

And she came in with a pyramid of luggage
asking for a room that was actually clean
it's so great to see
the family
why don't I give you a hand?

we begged and pleaded for absolution
the ropes and boards were for her own good
but she went in there
so much to bear
I hoped she hadn't eaten

when she walked in Maria lay as if asleep
and them bloody walls gave her quite a cheek
Hollis bent close
holding her nose
and whispered "dios mio!"

then Maria jumped up with two heads says "I'M ALIVE!"
unhinging her jaw, swallowing Hollis with a sigh
oh me oh my
just like mince pie
how could this be so??



we all fell silent, and stood for a long time
yeah we all fell silent and stood for a long time
and we all fell silent and stood, for a long time
Track Name: RE: SATAN'S MEMO
Re: Satan’s memo
40 years in this hollow
frozen to the marrow
(if only I had bones)

I was put in rotation
near a (deserted) telegraph station
told to haunt this highway
(great location)

I see the jokes on me now
I can scarcely scare the wasteland
when there’s no one to be found
(in between the dirt-mounds)

Can a demon have inner demons?
like some infinite regression
again and again
now solve for ‘n’

A pair once came by
riding horseback in the night
like a pair of glowing eyes
it went a little something like this...
Track Name: FIDEL'S DREAM
(Instrumental)
Track Name: GASLIGHTING A MOTH
Hell is a place
where all your mistakes
repeat ceaselessly

you'll tear down and dismay
all that you have made
watch these things gently sink

no matter how horrific
you will live, have, and hold it

you'll pass over a thousand times
with only one thing on your mind
laid to rest with your fist clenched

the whitening of your knuckles
will be all you've ever known

you can't wash away
what your inhumanity has stained
not even with your endless summer rain

instead the flood will steal you in your sleep
you'll be sung to softly
while smothered

hell is a place
where all your mistakes
repeat without cease

no matter how horrific
you will live, have, and hold it
