Track Name: Second Opinion
You’ll scream for help while the gates rust shut,
As the hoop recedes with every go ‘round.
We’ll staplegun the bill to your headstone
Once we surgically reverse that unseemly frown.

Wasting disease, we breathe fear
Always trying to prepare -
Pathological culture!

What if they’re not actually fixing anything?
What are they doing while i’m under?
Spreadsheet my thoughts and calculate the cost -
What if it’s not covered?

At least you’ve got your health.
You paid dearly for your health.
Assured you’ve got your health
For now, but

I really think I’m gonna need a second opinion!
I really think I’m gonna need a doctor assisted suicide!

It’s a pandemic that we all get to learn to live with,
In sickness or in health, as long as it’s in debt.
Track Name: Total Immersion
See something? Say nothing!

One citizenry under duress,
United by our self-interest.
They want you pointing the finger
So you can’t make a fist. Fuck their

Response to violence; citizen cops.
Total immersion, watching and watched.

Look at what we accept as normalcy;
Legislators want to know where I pee.
A sanitized, static society;
For who? Not me!

Vigilantism, panopticon.
Track Name: Faultless
Do you have to turn off your conscience to be able to turn on the news?
We’re all pacified, mutually reassured and thoroughly confused.
There’s a war raging inside me and every single night I lose.
Every move I make within this moral hedge maze belies the truth;

We get further every day.
There is no right way.

We’re all decadent degenerates who are playing dress up for keeps,
So concerned with the ways we’ve learned to bleat like black-clad sheep.
We rely on the lies we pass off to ourselves as ideologies.
They’ve got big hands and tight grasp and you’re still within their reach.

There’s no right way; we just play the hand we’re dealt each day, so sure that we’re faultless.
Track Name: Never Believed
I never believed in your lack of a future
I never believed in your lack of a past
I never believed in your middle finger
It was an index too, and they were both up your ass

And I never bought your prefabricated violence
Just another product on the fucking shelf
And I never put my faith in boys in a circle
Bragging about the handjobs they get from themselves
Track Name: Conceptual Fuck
They keep finding new edges that need smoothing!
Should I shave my legs? Should I shave my pits?
Should I cut down on my personality?

Conceptual fuck, theoretical sex.
Liberated women do it best;
It’s product on the shelf.
Because exploitation sells.

I learn who I am with every new bargain!
Should I settle down, or get a career?
Is it Madonna or Magdalene?

Is it love or just advertising jargon?
Should I find a man with a steady job?
What if he’s not into me?

It’s a product on the shelf/Commodification of self
It’s a product on the shelf/So much shit to buy to get to know myself
You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t
And you’re gonna buy it either way.
