Track Name: Garden of Eden
Garden of Eden here again
Thorny spikes and needles pierce my skin
Enter in my veins like sharpened pins
This garden holds all fears and bears all sins.

O!

Eat of the tree of the divine
Would you still say your master minds?

In the Garden of Eden
Man learned to clothe his skin
There is no original sin
There is no original sin.

Ah!

I till my ghostly garden fine
Uproot the weeds, I tend to my Garden of Eden.

What a fight
Of pain and death and fear but pure delight
You cause such awful pain and horrid strife
But many people find that's just alright.

Have you ever thought it through?
What's your world coming to?
Your face has changed a different hue
Have you shame for all you do?
Track Name: Amanita (nigredo)
Time has trapped me in a loop
Speeding up, it's time to choose
Trapped within your hold
I've come to learn I can't do both

If I refuse to make a choice
Well then I stand to lose the two of you

Amanita
I'm taken---can't you see?
Your sister means the world to me
I'm stretched as far as I can give
Without me you can't live
Track Name: Louis's Eulogy
When we get this what we never did know
Read all about filling the hole
Then we risk this with a dangerous fault
Failure results
Read all about.

Clenching tight fist as we rassle with this
Delay will not close the door
Running up tabs with the fortune you've had
Haste death to be your last wish

When we fake smiles what we always destroy
See all about filling the void
Now we risk this with a terrible fault
Making us doubt
Keeping us out.

[mounting cast itch over boneshatter this spells hell given the cast fits]
Track Name: Hello Again, Old Friend
I see you can't recall my name
Well I don't really look the same
It's really nice to meet you
Man, it's nice to see kind hands to give a trembling shake

Won't you please make a deal with me?
You're on your own
Lost your way long ago.

You knew you'd find me on your way
Here I am.
Hello.
Good day.
I knew you wouldn't greet me,
Nevermind just see my hand held out for you to shake

Won't you please make a deal with me?
You're far from home
Lost your way long ago.

Remember Mister Goodman Brown?
Not a better man in town
I won him in the end, sign your name and don't pretend that
you could ever turn me down

Theives and preists---they deal with me
All of your friends too
Are in wait for you.
Track Name: The Pink Daffy
I got a job at Red Lob
but it don't pay the Bills
so I drink that swill
yeah I get my thrills down at that little place across town

O you know where I'm talkin' about---that Pink Daffy Lounge

I GOT A JOB AT RED LOB BUT IT DON'T PAY THE BILLS
SO I DRINK THAT SWILL YEAH I GET MY THRILLS DOWN AT THAT

O where ya gonna run to now?
They're gonna find you there, they're gonna shoot you down---that Pink Daffy Lounge
Track Name: Amanita (albedo)
Five or six things cycle tragically
You're one of them still, as it should be
If I forget you, babe
You still wouldn't leave
Me and my love alone, as I've well seen

Then four or five frames rifle through my mind
And then you're one of three
Looped endlessly.

Amanita
I'm taken---can't you see?
Your sister's laid her claim on me
But suffer me one more mile,
And I'll be taking off
Track Name: Bitter Insides
Lovering hold me for for a moment
If only for a moment's love
Smother and scold me when the walls start dripping off

Everyone told me of an omen
Going with my own and I
It's lonely home, and late---
I'm gonna go and fly

Bored so I roam, and I told you, I know
I hope you're gonna let it slide
I don't want to see you cry
You know that I lose sight of why

Ownlier zone when I'm frozen
Humble be my chosen eye
Now I'm gonna tell you lies
I've left myself, I'm not inside

Never you mind, 'cause it passes in time
And I'm just gonna pacify
'Cause I could always cast a line to you and try

But the lower I go, I don't want you to know
Holding a hope for atonement
Lower I go I don't want you to know
Lower I go I don't want you to know

You're waiting for the sun to come wash the rain away
You're waiting for a savour come wash the shame away

Life in a nutshell: taste the bitter insides
Life is a steep hill full of ladders and slides

They're out and having fun, you're inside and hate the way
Just like everyone you'll try and escape today

Life in a nutshell: taste the bitter insides
Life is a steep hill full of ladders and slides
Track Name: Really Big Pig
He's a really big pig big pig big pig big pig big pig big pig big pig
He's a really big pig big pig big pig big pig big pig big pig!
I'm a really big pig
I'm a little tiny pig
He's a really big pig, yes a shining good pig
And he'll dance a good jig, yes, all the way home
With a one-two-buckle-my-shoe-three-four-five-more-six-seven-eight
Nine little swine
The pinky makes ten!
And home again, home again, home again then.

Jiggity jiggity
Jiggity jiggity jiggity jiggity jiggity jiggity jigitty jig
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig
Will I be that pig?
No, I'll be that pig!
Rotisseried on that barbeque rig

[laughter]

Alas, my love, you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously
For I have loved you well and long
Delighting in your company

Greensleeves was all my joy
Greensleeves was my delight
Greensleeves was my heart of gold
Who else but Lady Greensleeves?

[booing]

O!
Really big pig big pig big pig big piggy pig pig pig pig piggy piggy pig pig pig piggy pig pig pig piggy pig piggy pig piggy pig pig!

This little piggy had roast beef
This little piggy had none
This little piggy had no teeth
This little piggy had one, he had but one oh yes let's

Roast that piggy on low heat
Roast that piggy on low heat
Let's smoke us a slow treat, yes
Roast that piggy on low heat
On low heat
On low heat
On low heat

Tip me over and tip me over and tip me over and tip me over and tip me over and tip me over and tip me over and pour me out!
Track Name: Amytis/E-G-G-M-A-N/Big Operator/Nebuchadnezzar II
Amytis my dear you miss your home
So Hanging Garden for you I've grown

E-G-G-M-A-N YES I AM AN EGGMAN!

Just knocked all ten pins down
You can't petition fate
You can't delay the end of days
The Eggman's gotta operate

Addressed to you an envelope
That's sealed with hugs and kisses
Your letter from The Operator Hitting All The Switches

Hello Operator!
E-G-G-M-A-N I AM EGG NOGGIVAN!

There were three children from the land of Israel
(Shadrach, Meshach, and Abegnego)
Nebuchadnezzar was the King of Babylon
(Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego)
You must bow down and worship the idol
(Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego)

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
Track Name: Amanita (citrinitas)
Four shots ring from outside
I'm up four flights, and safe to hide
inside four walls enclosed
I hear two more ring from below.

Oh turn 'round babe, and run on home.
Her chamber's full.
She's got one to go.

Amanita
With her back turned she couldn't read
her name upon the jacket's sleeve.
But with me your secret's safe
And with me in my grave your words will be buried
Track Name: Red Robot
I'd like just once to close my eyes and open them to no surprise but dreams and hopes that never die that always stayed with me inside

I'd like just once to sleep the night and never wake to see the sights that make me give my lip a bite and lie and say I'll be all right

For a cool breeze
For a calm sea
I'd do anything

For the real peace
For a release
I've been trying

[the red robot discharges his raygun]

[a battle ensues]

See to it what I expect will have no problems interject so I can lay my hands to rest and I can say I've done my best

I want to forget you and me and how I lost your company and everything I thought would be and everything it meant to me

For a cool breeze
For a calm sea
I'd do anything

For the real peace
For a release
I've been trying
Track Name: Slugworth
Breeze, I feel the air
Won't let you go for a hundred years
Sunshine or snow
Deals out both hopes
Thirsty or drowned in the castle moat

Your life won't pay the debt
You destroy what you protect

I'm telling you no
I'm not ready to go
I'm happy-ever-after now
But it goes away
For a hundred years
For a hundred years
For a hundred years, for a hundred years
For a hundred years, for a hundred years

Light open, blinded by the night
Long hoping new lies come to light
