Track Name: Dilemmas of the Wonder Bread Quilt
Everything’s fine
No worries
It’s all good
But the same token
Says I would if I could
Tear it all up and
Knock down the walls

For one night
For one touch
For one chance to be
What I wanted so much
It doesn’t bear further inspection

It doesn’t bear further inspection
It doesn’t stand up to scrutiny
But it’s a fire-tested memory
It doesn’t submit to scrutiny
Track Name: Diorama
Tableaux in miniature
The details are the signs
You have to read between the lines
Illuminating theme
Emulating scene
Track Name: The Slimes
Ronnie Roundhouse
Got tuned up
By Muhammad Alley
So he gave up the street science

Called up his friend
English Vic
They formed a band
They found their sound

They were called The Slimes
And they were the most
Ass-kicking band around

We’re going downtown to see The Slimes
Track Name: Dark Masters
Boardroom debacles
Foie gras faux pas
The future is gat-elastic
For dark masters

100% de-aggravate
The internet is outside
It’s always man, chin or razor
To dark masters

Hand me that vial, child
I’m losing titles
I’ll send you rockers
From dark masters

Weaponized immunitease

100% de-aggravate
The internet is outside
It’s always man, chin or razor
To dark masters
Track Name: Grave of Leaves
Meet me at psychic outpost
In vibrant pathways
To phantomhead

Go to your womb
In a grave of leaves

“Meet me at psychic outpost!
In vibrant pathways
To phantomhead!”
Track Name: Philip Hidden Pine
Philip Hidden Pine
He does it every time
He’ll do it ’til you’re blind
He’s not ready for his close-up

Until it blew up
Everything was going fine
He’d worn himself a groove
Just from running in a line

O Hidden Pine
Up and at ’em!

They’re sounding the chime
For today’s cabana time
Track Name: Slick Liberty
Buy me firecrackers
Put ’em down
Yankee scum
Queens of Kingston
Thunder nuggets

Volcanic corruption
The husk of a wasp
Love Is the path
To the light
Of slick
Liberty and silver bells

Remember the future
When we turn to steam
Track Name: Understand Our Vegetable Formula
Only a baker’s dozen worldwide
Are qualified
To comprehend our vegetable formula
But of those 13

Four are partially hydrogenated
Two are a savory medley
Three are on spinach powder
One exhales sprouts
Track Name: I Gave You Joseph Airport
There’s no tomorrow today
Our brains are God’s DVR
You wanted to fly ...

We record the likeliest
Cognitive mantras
You wanted pilot’s garb
I gave you epaulets
You wanted to fly
I gave you wings

There’s nowhere higher
We left it on the airfield
We max the throttle
I pressurize the cabin
He serves the pretzels
At the cash bar

Downloading skyward
Cruising at croosting altitude
You wanted to fly
I gave you wings
You wanted to rock
I gave you Joseph Airport
Track Name: The Agronomist
The Acropolis
Pillars support steeds
With tyrants’ plots
That’s what he should know

The Agronomist
Supplants prude seeds
With hero crops
Now he’s good to grow
Track Name: Great Magical Things (Mesopotamians Unite!)
You don’t grow on trees
You’re made of great magical things
Your eyes are the dark and the quiet

Your skin is like velour
Let me curate all your heartifacts
Mesopotamians unite!
Mesopotamians unite!

Pawn your kings
Your Genghis cons
And Alexander the averages
Pick up your cold swords
For Liberty is a bitch
And the Atlantic is an open grave

Just ask your simiancestors
Eating headibles in Ego Cave
Mesopotamians unite!
Mesopotamians unite!
Pawn your kings
Your Genghis cons
Track Name: The Alchemist
He is the alchemist
Reality bender
Magical sciences practitioner

Offers forever elixir to peace wagers
And totem souls to deity pagers
Track Name: Write Now
He’s a crud
Totem Paul
Vincent’s price
Loaf of bad meat

Glamour Joe is so striking
When the ceiling drips down
The rockers aren’t the hits
You ride the acid horse for me

Sombrero claymore
I’ve got a tromboner
Don’t be impressed I just know how

To do it
Dragonflies are helicopters
Jellyfish are parachutes
Write now
Track Name: Fourteen Couches Aflame
You’re eminently
To remove the threat

Give your account number
When you call me back
But guess what?
Joe’s not here
So I’m paying for it

He’s a phoenix
Ready to rock the nation
Invited by a cloud
To a mini-slam

But guess what?
Joe’s not here so I set
14 couches aflame
I’m the one to blame
Track Name: Give Them Viking Burials
Find me a propeller
Give them proper wings
Give them Viking burials!

The jury will hang
As coy sirens coo
In an ancient tongue
The farmada ventures north
Track Name: An Act of Science
I’m Mr. Interesting
I’m all up in
Fredward’s personal business

But he’s obliv
To my test
And my hypothesis
High domus gains
Halyomorpha halys
On the corn blossoms

The last triumvirate
Awaits us in the boardroom
That’s helium dude
It’s what I remember
From my science
Track Name: High Standards King
Seek ye the choicest cuts
Liberate your fleshly demands
Touch it with the eyes
See it in your hands

Reiterate your fealty
Contemplate temporal concerns
Heavy is the head’s burden
When his asshole brother returns

High standards king
Approach the dais
Kiss the hem of the robe
Of the high standards king

It’s a case of regicide
Better than the corollary
It’s knock off the head
To possess the body
Track Name: Chaos Spigot
Stray gods fish with vermiculated apples
Strifeforms await the breeding frenzy
Jettisoned futures come
Gushing out of
Chaos spigot
Track Name: Murk Lurker
Did you hear?
They drew the line
A soil embargo
Retaking Key Largo
1 2 3

I’ve got the guts
Swerving through nerve grass
Choose your own mad venture
Blasé fire
Silver scream
The clutches of the murk lurker

Are you clear?
Are you well Ron?
Over yonder by the tree
Preparing for the hanging
1 2 3
Track Name: Chlorophilip
Experimental offspring of Chlorophilip:

The residents of your stalk
Are the blade of his advance
He is Chlorophilip

Experimental offspring
Dig their way
Out of Chlorophilip
Track Name: The Big Douchechill
Smalltime broheim
Fresh on the scene
Plastic haircut
Glaring at me

The glass
The wreck
The waving of phones
Slipping past unnoticed
Numb to the drone

Gathering speed
Into the west
Fleeing a black hole
Composed of white death
The big douchechill

Wailing of sirens
So far from home
O wild phantom
Where do you roam?
You gave me
The big douchechill
Track Name: Secret Broadcaster
Happy chemtrails to you
My cuteness pals
The bar is high
But so am I
Every princess has a wart somewhere

Secret broadcaster
In the night
Lop topper
With tattered wings

Your penmanship has sailed
Take it to Delaware
I went there
I’m taking you with me
Be sure you don’t blow yr fanfare

Secret broadcaster
Riding out the storm
Frayed and dismayed
Comfortably dumb

Heaven has an outer space
It’s bright and it’s inviting
If it can be done
Then it can’t be done
Does a succubus ever need light?

Secret broadcaster
Rotating vocal stylings
To the outer edges
Of the sonic sphere

Secret broadcaster
In the night
Lop topper
With tattered wings
Track Name: Fire Swimmers
Fire swimmers
Elude the Day-Glo cop
They don’t have time for friction

As unapproved masters
Wave wands full of chemicals
At kite walkers cum abracadavers

We’re all made of carbon
But blazers never tell
Blazers never tell ...
Track Name: No Honor Among Thieves (Coda)
There’s no honor among thieves
There's no honor among thieves

They’ll stab your back
They’ll leave you slack
And put your blood in a tureen

There’s no honor among thieves
