Track Name: That's What The Sign Said
Walk or don't walk
That's what the sign said

Wait right here

Walk or don't walk
That's what the sign said
When it was time to die

Wait right here
Wait
Track Name: Enlightenment
If I could see the light would I know what to do with it?
I couldn't find my ass with both hands and a map
If ignorance is bliss then I'm in ecstasy
I would be perfect if I wasn't full of crap

Cos I feel like a man but I'm not

I saw a vision of an angel rise in front of me
When I asked where she came from she wouldn't say
She said, "Everyone must choose to leave the things they love
If they want to know the straight and narrow way."

Cos I feel like a man but I'm not

And so I thought about the things the angel said to me
And a light began to dawn inside my brain
Is enlightenment a man's responsibility,
Or could a little knowledge drive someone insane?

Cos I feel like a man but I'm not
And I made other plans then forgot

Then she left me all alone
She said, "This is one decision
You must make on your own."

If I could see the light...
Track Name: Boltcutters & Speedos
Boltcutters, Speedos, and Elephant Seals
Things you need for a real beach party!
Track Name: Finnarininin's Revenge-enge
(Fin-nar-in-in-) Born to high society, he gained notoriety
Wheelin' and dealin' secrets from stealin'
Betrayed by his agency, they filled him with ragency
Beware the revenge-enge of Finnarinin-IN!

He'll steal your woman and your works of art
And paralyze you with a poison dart
Electrocute you in a hail of sparks
Introduce you to his tank of sharks
And if his No. 2 starts getting smart
He'll leave him in the dark

He's got a fortress brimming with minions
Millions of minions within his dominion
Yeah, he's got a fortress, look like a volcano
Not in a volcano, it IS a volcano! BOOM!

He'll steal your woman and your works of art
And paralyze you with a poison dart
Electrocute you in a hail of sparks
And have you swimmin' in his tank of sharks
And when his No. 2 gets blown apart
He'll feed him to the sharks

With savage ability, he threatened stability
Yet nations united, they would not be frighted
They sent in their best man who thwarted his evil plan
Is this the end of the fiend known as Finnarinin-IN!
Track Name: Ninefingers
I can't control what I don't feel
Can't hold my soul under heel
Could this be real? I've got a hold
Around your neck, I can't let go
Track Name: Higontus
If I had a monkey
I would name him Higontus
I would love him
We would go for walks

While at the park
We'd throw the ball around
We would roll and play
And then we'd go for beers

It's so hard when you love and you lose
It's so hard when you don't have a choice to choose

While at the bar
TV's and beer
We'd do this every day
And we'd be happy

It's so hard when you love and you lose
It's so hard when you don't have a choice to choose
You only lose
Track Name: Grow
Grow up
Up! God damn you!
To the sun, to the sky
Like your brothers before you
Like your sisters behind you
To the sun, to the sky

Been living too long in the arms of ghosts
Too long by far
By yourself but not alone
Should have seen them as the poisons they are

... Strong!
Is that so f*cking hard?
Rage at the heavens!
Like your fathers before you
Like your mothers behind you
To the sun, to the sky

Been living too long in the arms of ghosts
Too long by far
By yourself but not alone
Should have seen them as the poisons they are

Too much a stranger, too long a ghost
Too long you linger and fail to grow

Rise! Climb the mountain!
Grow!
Track Name: The Judge
... And so I find myself headstong to the sun
With my back on an unrelenting epiphany
The double-lines and signs stretch for miles
But I can't quite see what they mean for me
It could be told I once ignored some advice
It could be said that I never thought twice, but I
I believe that all good things come to someone just like me

All gods' roads may be blessed
But they are few and far between
It goes to show you just can't kneel and confess
To keep your tracks clean

With my intentions firmly under heel
I have traveled this path too far to seek clemency
Today, there's no stay of execution
For the Judge will never show leniency
See the child at the fire, he's pale and thin
Before Man was, War waited for him
Now I stand as the sole witness
To contest this regency

All God's roads may be blessed
But they are few and far between
It goes to show you just can't kneel and confess
To keep your tracks clean

That subtle ring in my ear
That copper taste of blood and fear
How far is far enough?
Better get up before I give up

As that sun sets crimson in the sky
I look to the horizon to find my adversary
He has followed me like night after day
And conceded to me not one sanctuary
I may lose this fight but he won't prevail
For the devil you see is in the details
That's right, I'll keep what I've earned
And take it with me when I'm buried

Bootless and weather-beaten
Homeless and almost heathen
Defense? I don't need 'em
Because I'm soulless yet still believin'

All gods' roads may be blessed
But they are few and far between
It goes to show you just can't kneel and confess
To keep your tracks clean
All God's roads may be blessed
But that's not the way for me
You say you always know when it comes down to this
Now I see what you mean

At my funeral there would be
No pity or grief given
No-one would no of the broken down man
Who ate the sins of the living
And like a snake eating it's tail
I wondered if this was all in my head
How long can I keep this up
Before the Devil knows that I'm dead?
Track Name: What's Better Than Time?
I'll be the river
You be the mountain
I'll wear you down to the ground
I'll tear you open
Filter out your insides
I'll be the one...

Who wore you down

David or Goliath
Ain't got sh*t on this guy
I wore 'em down to the ground
Victory not-withstanding
You gave it a good try
I was the one...

Who wore you down

I'll be the river
You be the mountain
I'll be the one

Who wore you down
Track Name: Half Full
So you're an optimist
Trying to be realistic?
Make it look effortless
Like you were born for this

The word you're searching for is nihilist
Oh, but I think I catch your drift
Don't be such a pessimist!
Come 'ere and gimme a kiss
Right here

Half Full!
I was
Half Full!

Now I'm the optimist
Forced to be realistic
I make it effortless
Like I was born for this sh*t!
I was!

Half Full!
I was
Half Full!

The word you're searching for is...
Track Name: Overchurro
What's mine is mine
'Til the end of Time
And you won't be havin'
What I am not given
For it's me you see
In the details

No time for deviation
