Track Name: Emancipation of Dissonance
Amidst the endless hum
No wind worth chasing, no revolution
No blazing battle drum

We laughed as we said, "The music is dead"
We've plucked out its eyes, we've shattered its head
My work is so weary so let it be said, "Father, Thy will be done"

We laughed as we said, "The music is dead"
We've plucked out its eyes, we've shattered its head
My work is so weary so let it be said, "Father, Thy will be done"

Instruments make the best sounds as they're breaking
People make the best smiles when they're faking
Notes are shattered, blood is spattered
The night is ours for the taking

And what shall we say now that it is gone?
Track Name: Eureka Ghost
Space Ghost's Musical Bar-B-Que
Everybody Wants To Be Space Ghost
[Space Ghost]
Everybody wants to be Space Ghost
Everybody near and far
Hey, ma, look at me
I'm on TV
Everybody wants to be a star

I'm Space Ghost
Mr. Space Ghost
I've got big muscles
And I can dance
When Zorak tries to bug me
I zap him with my power bands

[Zorak]
Uhhhh...I don't think that will be necessary

[Space Ghost]
I think I'll zap him with my power bands

On Saturn and Jupiter and Neptune, too
I've been hearing it from coast to coast
I'd give anything
If for just one day
I could be a super hero like Space Ghost

[Zorak]
Ugghh...Why would anyone want to be Space Ghost?

[Space Ghost]
Everybody wants to be just like me!
Track Name: Audio Processor
From the east to the west, from here to Bombay
Save the whales, save the planet
Save the eagles today

From the mountains to the valleys
To the rich and the poor
Everybody has a voice but they still want more
They fight, they shout, they yell what they screamin' for

Picket lines, burning flags magazines
Coup-de-ta, kill the king
See the people rally, hear them scream
The world's a speaker, listen to them sing

It's an audio world
A world that's speaking out to you
It's an audio world
A world that's dying to hear the truth

You got to show up, speak up, get the word told
Tell all the people and you've got to be bold
Just let the voice of God in their hearts unfold

We make the message known by the anthems we sing
But there's many of us who haven't done a thing
Be a sign waver for the Christ and the coming king

Let's preach and teach and spread the word
Tell everybody 'til everybody's heard
Let it be known that it's for the king
And this is the reason that we sing

It's an audio world
A world that's speaking out to you
It's an audio world
A world that's dying to hear the truth

It's an audio world
A world that's speaking out to you
It's an audio world
A world that's dying to hear the truth

It's an audio world
A world that's speaking out to you
It's an audio world
A world that's dying to hear the truth

It's an audio, audio world
It's an audio, audio world
It's an audio, audio world
Audio world, audio world
Track Name: Year Zero
It doesn't matter, it's all just a pack of lies
Build a new base, steal a new face
It doesn't matter it's all just to save you

We'll never fade away
We'll never fade away
I will stand by your ground
I will tear down myself, I won't fade

Year zero, another hero
Is anybody alive here across the line?
Buy a new face, start a new race
It doesn't matter, it's all just to save your face
It's all just to save your face
It's all just to save you

We'll never fade away
We'll never fade away
I will stand by your ground
I will tear down myself
I will stand by your ground
I will tear down myself
I won't fade and I won't fade

We'll never fade away
We'll never fade away
We'll never fade away

We'll never fade away
We'll never fade away
We'll never fade away
(We will never fade away)
We'll never fade away
(We will never fade away)

We'll never fade away
(We will never fade away)
We'll never fade away
(We will never fade)
We'll never fade away
(We will never fade away)
We'll never fade away
(We will never fade)
We'll never fade away

It doesn't matter, it's all just a pack of lies
Build a new base, steal a new face
Track Name: Over Active Appreciation
Miscellaneous
The Take Over
Baby, seasons change but people don't
And I'll always be waiting in the back room
I'm boring but overcompensate
with Headlines and flash, flash, flash photography

But don't pretend you ever forgot about me
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me

Wouldn't you rather be a widow than a divorcee?
Style you wake for fashion magazines
A widow or a divorcee?

Don't pretend,d-d-d-don't pretend

We don't fight fair (x2)

They Say your head can be a prison
Then these are just conjugal visits,
People will dissect us till
This doesn't mean a thing anymore

Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me

Wouldn't you rather be a widow than a divorcee?
Style you wake for fashion and magazines ooooh
Widow or a divorcee?

Don't pretend,d-d-d-don't pretend

We'll do it in the dark
With smiles on our faces
We're trapped and well concealed
In secret places (x2) (wo-oh)

We don't fight fair (x5)

We'll do it in the dark
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places (x2) (wo-oh)

We don't fight fair
With smiles on our faces
We're dropped and well concealed
In secret places

We don't fight fair
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
We don't fight fair
Don't pretend you ever forgot about me
We don't fight fair
Track Name: Specimen Well
Couldn't I just be making this all up as I go along?
Though I feel alone at times shouldn't I feel like I belong?
I imagine myself to be who I want to be
Though I feel along at time shouldn't I feel like I belong?

Oh, I can hear those trumpets, they are playing for me and only me
They are there to remind me I'm alive

I sometimes wonder about myself
Couldn't I just be making this all up as I go along?
Though I feel alone at times shouldn't I feel like I belong?
I imagine myself to be who I want to be
Though I feel along at time shouldn't I feel like I belong?

Oh, I can hear those trumpets, they are playing for me and only me
They are there to remind me I'm alive, alive, alive, alive, alive

I sometimes wonder about myself
Couldn't I just be making this all up as I go along?

I was born out of nowhere as if I had been dropped from the sky
My mother, the clouds that cushioned me
My sister, the flowers I saw on my way down
My brother cradled me as I laid there alone

Couldn't I just be making this all up as I go along?
Though I feel alone at times shouldn't I feel like I belong?
Track Name: Zombie Aesthetics
True pain and suffering he brought to them all
Away ran the children to hide in their beds
For fear that the devil would chop off their heads

True pain and suffering he brought to them all
Away ran the children to hide in their beds
Track Name: Voodoo Pantheon
Jerry's getting naked and there's mayhem in the air!
Bring your favorite homies, and your lil' sister too
The local club's got voodoo and we all know what to do

Ren-dez-voodoo
(Who do voodoo we doo, fuck you)

I remember way back, back in 1989
I used to see you play at the Hong Kong, in the back
Now that I'm much older, my nephew likes you too
I brought him to the concert just to get your autograph

Everybody's going loco, acting like a clown
Trying to contain themselves and not act like a fool
We don't bring no haircuts, no suits or attitude
Just our cheeky money and our firmed tunes

Ren-dez-voodoo
(Who do voodoo we doo, fuck you)
Ren-dez-voodoo
(Who do voodoo we doo, fuck you)

Representers in the front, all the dissers in the back
They came to see the opener 'cause we're too old and fat
Mommies and daddies are waiting in the car
It's another late night and we're playing after hours

Older chicks don't like us because we play too fast
The younger ones admire us 'cause we remind them of their dads
Alcoholics at the bars are feeling lonesome too
They were all backstage and drank up all our brew

Jerry's getting naked and there's mayhem in the air!
Bring your favorite homies, and your lil' sister too

Track Name: Thinking and Feeling
And let me know I'm alive

Oh, sometimes I wish I didn't
Have an answer or a clue to anything
All this wondering and this thinking and wondering
And this thinking and wondering what I'm gonna do

So many reasons to believe, yeah
I am so easily deceived, oh

Oh, sometimes I wish I didn't
Have an answer or a clue to anything
All this wondering and this thinking and wondering
And this thinking and wondering what I'm gonna do

So would you take me for a ride
And let me know I'm still alive, oh

Oh, sometimes I wish I didn't
Have an answer or a clue to anything
All this wondering and this thinking and wondering
And this thinking and wondering what I'm gonna do

And let me know I'm alive
