DISC 1

1. INAUGURATION OF THE MECHANICAL CHRIST

This isn't me
I'm not mechanical...




2. THE REFLECTING GOD

Your world is an ashtray
We burn and coil like cigarettes
The more you cry your ashes turn to mud
It's the nature of the leeches, the virgin's
Feeling cheated

You've only spent a second of your life
My world is unaffected, there is an exit here
I say it is and then it's true,
There is a dream inside a dream,
I'm wide awake the more I sleep

You'll understand when I'm dead
I went to god just to see, and I was looking at me
Saw heaven and hell were lies
When I'm god everybody dies
Scar/can you feel my power?
Shoot here and the world gets smaller
Scar/scar/can you feel my power?

One shot and the world gets smaller
Let's jump upon the sharp swords
And cut away our smiles
Without the threat of death
There's no reason to live at all

My world is unaffected, there is an exit here
I say it is and then it's true,
There is a dream inside a dream,
I'm wide awake the more I sleep
You'll understand when I'm dead

Each thing I show you is a piece of my death
Shoot shoot shoot motherfucker
No salvation, no forgiveness
This is beyond your experience
Forgiveness...




3. GREAT BIG WHITE WORLD

In space the stars are no nearer
They just glitter like a morgue
And I dreamed I was a spaceman
Burned like a moth in a flame
And our world was so fucking gone

But I'm not attached to your world
Nothing heals and nothing grows

Because it's a great big white world and we are drained of Our colors
We used to love ourselves, we used to love another
All my stiches itch
My prescription's low, I wish you were queen just for today
In a world so white what else could I say?

And hell was so cold
All the vases are so broken
And the roses tear our hands all open
Mother marry miscarry
And we pray just like insects
The world is so ugly now

Because it's a great big white world and we are drained of Our colors




4. GET YOUR GUNN

Goddamn your righteous hand
I eat innocent meat
The housewife I will beat
The prolife I will kill
What you won't do I will
I bash myself to sleep
What you sow I will reap
I scar myself you see
I wish I wasn't me
I am the little stick
You stir me into shit
I hate therefore I am
Goddamn your righteous hand
Goddamn, Goddamn
Goddamn, Goddamn

Pseudo-morals work real well on the talk shows for the week
But your selective judgements and goodguy badges don't mean To fuck to me

I am the VHS
Record me with your fist
Want me to save the world
I'm just a little girl
Get your gunn, get your gunn
Get your gunn, get your gunn




5. SWEET DREAMS

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas.
Everybody's looking for something.
Some of them want to use you.
Some of them want to get used by you.
Some of them want to abuse you.
Some of them want to be abused.
Sweet dreams are made of this.

Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas.
Everybody's looking for something.
I wanna use you and abuse you.
I wanna know what's inside you.
(hold your head up, movin' on.
Keep your head up, movin' on.
hold your head up, movin' on.
Keep your head up, movin' on.
hold your head up, movin' on.
Keep your head up, movin' on.)
Movin' on!

Sweet dreams are made of this.
Who am I to disagree?
Travel the world and the seven seas.
Everybody's looking for something.
I'm gonna use you and abuse you.
I'm gonna know what's inside.
Gonna use you and abuse you.
I'm gonna know what's inside you




6. ROCK IS DEAD

All simple monkeys with alien babies
Amphetamines for boys
Crucifixes for ladies
Sampled and soulless
Worldwide and real webbed
You sell all the living
For more safer dead

Anything to be loved

Rock is deader than dead
Shock is all in your head
Your sex and your dope is all that were fed
So fuck all your protests and put them to bed

God is on the T.V.

1,000 mothers are praying for it
We're so full of hope
And so full of shit
Build a new god to medicate and to ape
Sell us ersatz dressed up and real fake

Anything to be loved

Rock is deader than dead (chorus repeat)

God is on the T.V.




7. THE DOPE SHOW

The drugs they say make us feel so hollow
We love in vain narcissistic and so shallow
The cops and queers to swim you have to swallow
Hate today, no love for tomorrow

We're all stars now in the dope show
We're all stars now in the dope show

There's a lot of pretty, pretty ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty ones
Will leave you low and blow your mind

We're all stars now in the dope show
We're all stars now in the dope show

They love you when you're on all the covers
When you're not then they love another

The drugs they say are made in California
We love your face
We'd really like to sell you
The cops and queers make good-looking models
I hate today
Who will I wake up with tomorrow?

There's a lot of pretty, pretty ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty ones
Will leave you low and blow your mind

They love you when you're on all the covers
When you're not then they love another

There's a lot of pretty, pretty ones
That want to get you high
But all the pretty, pretty ones
Will leave you low and blow your mind, blow your mind

We're all stars now in the dope show
We're all stars now in the dope show




8. LUNCHBOX

On we plow
The big bully try to stick his finger in my chest
Try to tell me, tell me he's the best
But I don't really give a good goddamn cause
I got my lunchbox and I'm armed real well
I got my lunchbox and I'm armed real well
I got my lunchbox and I'm armed real well

I wanna grow up
I wanna be a big rock and roll star
I wanna grow up
I wanna be
So no one fucks with me, yeah

I got the pencils in my pocket, try to put me down
Wanna go out, gotta get out to the playground
wanna throw down at the playground
I wanna go out
Next motherfucker gonna get my metal
Next motherfucker gonna get my metal
Next motherfucker gonna get my metal
Next motherfucker
Pow Pow Pow, Pow Pow Pow, Pow Pow Pow, Pow Pow Pow




9. I DON'T LIKE THE DRUGS (BUT THE DRUGS LIKE ME)

Norm life baby "we're white and oh so hetero and our sex is missionary.
Norm life baby "we're quitters and we're sober our confessions will be televised."

You and I are underdosed and we're ready to fall
Raised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all

I don't like the drugs but the drugs like me
I don't like the drugs, the drugs, the drugs

Norm life baby "our god is white and unforgiving we're piss tested and we're praying."
Norm life baby "I'm just a sample of a soul made to look Just like a human being."

Norm life baby "we're rehabbed and we're ready dor our 15 minutes of shame."
Norm life baby "we're talkshown and we're poiting just like Christians at a suicide."

You and I are underdosed and we're ready to fall
Raised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all
I don't like the drugs but the drugs like me
I don't like the drugs, the drugs, the drugs




10. ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR

You built me up with your wishing hell
I didn't have to sell you
You threw your money in the pissing well
You do just what they tell you

REPENT, that's what I'm talking about
I shed the skin to feed the fake
REPENT, that's what I'm talking about
Whose mistake am I anyway?
Cut the head off
Grows back hard
I am the hydra

Now you'll see your star
Prick your finger it is done
The moon has now eclipsed the sun
The angel has spread its wings
The time has come for bitter things
The time has come it is quite clear
Our antichrist
Is almost here...
It is done




11. THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

I don't want you and I don't need you
Don't bother to resist, I'll beat you
It's not your fault that you're always wrong
The weak ones are there to justify the strong
The beautiful people, the beautiful people

It's all relative to the size of your steeple
You can't see the forest for the trees
You can't smell
Your own shit on your knees
Hey you, what do you see?
Something beautiful, something free?

Hey you, are you trying to be mean?
If you live with apes man, it's hard to be clean
There's no time to discriminate,
Hate every motherfucker
That's in your way
The worms will live in every host

It's hard to pick which one they eat most
The horrible people, the horrible people
It's as anatomic as the size of your steeple
Capitalism has made it this way,
Old-fashioned fascism
Will take it away




12. IRRESPONSIBLE HATE ANTHEM

I am so all-american, I'll sell you suicide
I am totalitarian, I've got abortions in my eyes
I hate the hater, I'd rape the raper
I am not the animal who will not be himself
Fuck it

Hey victim, should I black your eyes again?
Hey victim,
You were the one who put the stick in my hand
I am the ism, my hate's a prism
Let's jut kill everyone and let your god sort them out
Fuck it

Everybody's someone else's nigger/I know you are so am I
I wasn't born with enough middle fingers/
I don't need to choose a side
I better, better, better, better not say this
better, better, better, better not tell
I hate the hater, I'd rape the raper
I am the idiot who will not be himself

Fuck it




13. THE LAST DAY ON EARTH

Yesterday was a million years ago
In all my past lives I played an asshole
Now I found you, it's almost too late
And this earth seems obliviating
We are trembling in our crutches
High and dead our skin is glass
I'm so empty here without
I crack and split my xerox hands

I know it's the last day on earth
We'll be together while the planet dies
I know it's the last day on earth
We'll never say goodbye

The dogs slaughter each other softly
Love burns it's casualties
We are damaged provider modules
Spill the seeds at our children's feet
I'm so empty here without you
I know they want me dead

I know it's the last day on earth




14. ASTONISHING PANORAMA OF THE ENDTIMES

The boy's got a head like an atom bomb
Hang him from a cross like the number one son
And he's been waiting so long
To get it on.

The boy's 15 but he's 16 gauge
Wants to get out of his Jesus cage
He's already torn out the last page
It's the "latest rage"

Violence for the people
They always eat the hand that bleeds
Violence for the people
Give the kids what they need
Kill your god, Kill your god
Kill your TV

The boy's purified by the quitter gods
Burning up his cross like a revelation
And his glass jaw opens
Like a puppet head

Violence for the people
They always eat the hand that bleeds
Violence for the people
Give the kids what they need
Kill your god, Kill your god
Kill your TV

This is what you should fear
You are what you should fear

Violence for the people
They always eat the hand that bleeds
Violence for the people
Give the kids what they need
Kill your god, Kill your TV




DISC 2

1. COMA WHITE

Something is cold and blank behind her smile
She's standing on an overpass
In her miracle mile
(coma):
"You were from a perfect world
A world that threw me away today
Today to run away"

A pill to make you numb
A pill to make you dumb
A pill to make you anybody else
But all the drugs in this world
Won't save her from herself

Her mouth was an empty cut
And she was waiting to fall
Just bleeding like a polaroid that
Lost all her dolls
(coma):
"You were from a perfect world
A world that threw me away today
Today to run away"

A pill to make you numb
A pill to make you dumb




2. GET MY ROCKS OFF (DOCTOR HOOK COVER)

Some men need some killer weed
Some men need cocaine
Some men need some cactus juice, to purify the brain
Some men need two women, some need alcohol
Everybody needs a little something
But Lord I need it all

To get my rocks off
Get my rocks off
Get my rocks off the mountain
And roll'em on down the hill

I may do you one time, and I may do you more
I may turn you into something,
That you ain't ready for
I might want your body
And I might want your bread
I might want your momma to come visit me instead

And get my rocks off
Get my rocks off
Get my rocks off the mountain,
And roll'em on down the hill

Sometimes I dream of chicks
To bring me ever lasting joys
Sometimes I dream of animals,
Sometimes I dream of boys
Sometimes I kill the living
Sometimes I raise the dead
Sometimes I say just screw it all,
And crawl back into bed

And get my rocks off
Get my rocks off
Get my rocks off the mountain
And roll'em on down the hill




3.COMA WHITE (ACOUSTIC VERSION)

Something is cold and blank behind her smile
She's standing on an overpass
In her miracle mile
(coma):
"You were from a perfect world
A world that threw me away today
Today to run away"

A pill to make you numb
A pill to make you dumb
A pill to make you anybody else
But all the drugs in this world
Won't save her from herself

Her mouth was an empty cut
And she was waiting to fall
Just bleeding like a polaroid that
Lost all her dolls
(coma):
"You were from a perfect world
A world that threw me away today
Today to run away"

A pill to make you numb
A pill to make you dumb




4. A ROSE AND A BABY RUTH (GEORGE HAMILTON IV COVER)

Doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo

We had a quarrel
A teenage quarrel
Now I'm as blue as
I know how to be
I can't call you on the phone
I can't even see you at your home
So I'm sending you this present
Just to prove that I'm telling the truth
Dear, I believe you won't laugh when you receive
This rose and a Baby Ruth

Doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo,

Ahh I could have sent you
An orchid of some kind
But that's all I had in my jeans at the time
But when we grow up
Some day I'll show up
Just to prove I was telling the truth
I'll kiss you, too, then I'll hand to you
This rose and a Baby Ruth

Doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, ooh
