Track Name: Cock-A-Diddle
Break out the holy water cuz I come for your daughter Chuck!

You’re in the presence of the Holy See
Oh where oh where could that poor boy be?
We all take a bite of the apple from the sinner’s tree
And you might as well get it from me
It’s the glory hole confession
From the oldest and wisest profession
Better not have any questions during this session
Or I will teach your ass a lesson

You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth
Put the holy tube in your hollow and be sure to swallow
You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth
You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth
When you want the spirit inside be sure to open up wide
You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth

It’s all written down in the scripture
If you read it like this you see the picture
Man creates the most potent mixture
Take a sip of this holy tincture
Believe me, you should feel blessed
You’ve seen the face of God undressed
You better genuflect and show some respect!
You got the cock of Jesus in your mouth boy!

You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth
Cuz it’s purity for all and we’re gonna have a ball
You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth
You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth
If you’re dazed and dumb and you’re speaking in tongues
You got the cock of Jesus in yer mouth

(bridge)
Say cock a doodle doooo If you’re wearing the collar but you like a little smaller
Say cock a diddle doooo If you’re a man of the cloth and love the 8 year old froth
Say cock a doodle doooo If you’re a dirty old priest and you like the sweet feast
Say cock a diddle doooo If you’re a monk with the thirst for some dunk a dunk dunk

You sure got a purdy mouth. I think you need a little Jesus in it!
Track Name: Thank You So Much
Americans are the trend setters
Witty memes and cute little sound bites
Innocuous cheap pop culture
Little crumbs of tasty delights

Americans have to be different
To proclaim their individuality
Man buns and pretentious fashions
But they all look the same to me!

They only thank you how they want to thank you
They only thank you so much
They can’t decide how they want to thank you
So they always thank you so much

Americans have to keep up appearances
Slacktivism and bumper stickers
Neck beards and post grunge hipsters
Fake lumberjack city slickers

Americans have to feel special
Baby names that scream inanity
Safe spaces and poor hurt feelings
Makes me question all humanity

Chorus

Americans are so very lazy
Indifferent smug passivity
A lackadaisical code of decorum
What the fuck happened to propriety

Americans have no sense of courtesy
You could be a waitress serving luncheon
And they’ll thank you exactly the same as
If you saved their family from certain destruction
Track Name: Dolphins Always Drink Decaf (Coffee Pods For the Sea)
It’s a patch the size of the lone star state
You can probably guess what we just ate
I see everything’s going wrong, but still I sing this song
And hope the nightmare goes away

No one dares swim outside the boats
Bubble packs could slice our throats
Guys we’re in big trouble because no one can live in a bubble
You think it’s gone but there it floats

Coffee pods for the sea
Presents from you and me
La la la la la
Drink it up while we laugh but don’t forget the half and half
Dolphins always drink decaf

They’re counting on help from on high
Believe in the biggest lie
I know this all seems hard
Keep it out of my backyard
But there’s nowhere else that we can hide

We decimate the animals and plants
From the great whale to the smallest ant
We’ve got to stop our assault because this shit is all our fault
We’ve got to speak for those who can’t

Chorus

Power is with a chosen few
It seems there’s nothing you can do
You just post something on your wall but the power is with us all
If we all speak up, we come right through

Big oil will never give up the fight
They will never ever do what’s right
Never resort to shame
You’re playing their rigged game
So we got to punch out all their lights
Track Name: Sound Going
Born I was with the curse of Cadmus
Epistolarian, a serialist of everything I see
But as hard as I try I can never kill the dragons
The dragons they taunt me they won’t ever leave me be

Someone somewhere is laughing at me they’re laughing
For I dared to challenge your conventions I dare to break the mold
I can feel the stares of derision I think I’m cracking
Their eyes are cold I must try to get this out before I’m old

I’ve got to do something before the sound goes away
I’ve got to do something before the…

I can feel time clamoring at my doorstep it’s knocking
Breaking down defenses I carefully devised, and I fear
That the fucker’s gonna get the better of me it’s breaking
Through illusions and conceits I had fitfully contrived

I’ve got to do something before the sound goes away
I’ve got to do something before the…

How many things can I buy give up and take it back
Because nothing nothing in this world really comes with a guarantee
There’s far more layers in this life than I can ever hope to unpack
Believe me…
No one was more surprised than me

Just when I think the battle is joined I’m winning the fight
I was certain I had done my part I had cast the last stone
Something wakes me up in the middle of the night
I try to sleep try to sleep but my muse won’t leave me alone

I’ve got to do something before the sound goes away
I’ve got to do something before the…
Track Name: The Chosen
Cut our heads off
We can’t be like the savages
Cut the heads off
We can’t look like the savages
We are special, we are ordained
We have to show we are the chosen

I just want him to
Look just like his father
I am saved so
I want him to be too

Can’t have too much pleasure
We can’t let them delight
The only worldly pleasure’s
In heaven’s splendid light

Cut our heads off
We can’t be like the savages
Cut the heads off
We can’t look like the savages
We are special, we are ordained
We have to show we are the chosen

I just want her to
Feel just like her mother
I want her to be saved
So I can be too

She can’t have too much pleasure
We can’t let her delight
The only worldly pleasure’s
In my birthing rights

Cut our heads off
We can’t be like the savages
Cut their heads off
We can’t look like the savages
We are special, we are ordained
We have to show we are the chosen
Track Name: Look Back Alone
Well look at you – you believed that you were safe
You thought this sort of thing would never happen to you here
You should have known – this place is rotten to its core
And now all the things you loved are now all the things you fear

All the protections – that you had under rule of law
Vanished into the ether like all of our lofty dreams
There are no guarantees – we are slaves to our passions
Violence and terror rule when god goes mainstream

You gonna hide but
They’re gonna find us anyway so
Look back and look back alone
Look back and look back alone

First they took your dignity – they made you second class
One by one your rights are gone they whittled them away
They made you an animal – in invisible iron shackles
Your essence made illegal no matter what you say

You can’t fight it – the majority has ruled
The few will always suffer for another man’s offense
You’re a victim - of someone’s deeply held beliefs
Trapped in tent city behind concertina fence

You gonna hide but
They’re gonna find us anyway so
Look back and look back alone
Look back and look back alone
Track Name: Safe Space
You think you’re special and exceptional
Only your opinion is acceptable
You’ll learn a hard lesson before too long
The more you think you’re right the more you’re wrong

You dismiss out of hand cause you think it’s dumb
You’ll never understand where they’re coming from
You have to talk about it and think it through
So get out of your space and you’ll see it too

Get out of your safe space

There’s more than one religion for you
There’s more than one world vision for you
The meaning of life is here on this Earth
The life that you live is what it’s worth

If you never get out and see all you can see
You’ll never know what this life can be
There’s more in the world than what’s in your view
So get out of your space and do something new

Get out of your safe space

Experience what you can when you can get involved and get deep even without a plan
Experience different races and faces you can drive and fly and see so many places
Experience all the foods girls and dudes you can play you can dance if you stay on the move
Experience your life fearlessly and soon you’ll find comfort in uncertainty
Track Name: Nothing To Say
Well he brought the…
Animals out of their rotten core
He riled up emotions he promised you more
Guaranteed your safety by his own ends
But you can’t bomb people and make them your friends

He’s the TV magician, pulling peace out his hat
With more and more guns and perpetual combat
A war that never ends with the enemy de jour
Destruction is final and mutually assured

Everyone is our enemy, that’s what he said!
Militant guerillas hiding under my bed
Oh where’s my big rifle, I mean my widdle binkie
He made me so scared I think I made a stinkie

You ignorant fools, you’ve been taken for rides
Could not see the danger that lingers inside
All the lofty ideals and the trickle-down hope
But they didn’t give you gold, they just gave you a rope

(Chorus)
This is what you get when you sleep on your rights
We all lose the fight you got nothing to say
This is what you get for your complacency
Cut down easily you’ve got nothing to say
This is what you get cause you didn’t come out
You get punched in the mouth you got nothing to say
This is the world that you pushed aside
Better open up wide you got nothing to say

You sat this one out said it can’t affect me
I got a good job, I’m protected, you’ll see
Way up on the food chain, I’ll always make-do
It’s a matter of time ‘til they get down to you

You just pout in the corner a petulant child
While your rights are stolen your person defiled
Maybe next time you’ll wake up before it’s too late
Fight for what you love and not what you hate

Chorus

Your first draft pick lost and yeah that’s a shame
You quit when the other team’s still playing the game
And just when you took your eyes off the ball
That’s when you noticed that they screwed us all

I’m sure you’ll be stunned when you’re not at the top
With the King on his throne with his power non stop
You’ll be with the people here at the bottom
While he laughs in your face and says damn we sure got ‘em

(Chorus)

Well this is a brave new world that we have to live in
I wish I could say that I share your optimism
I guess we will all find out what happens at the end of the day
But I won’t say any more because I have nothing left to say.
