Sing for the enemy dollar Sing your ego, run in place (Black eyes. Black eyes!) Pray for the incidental Insist that someone else decide (Black eyes. Black eyes!) Break the rhythm of the loyal Breathe the rhythm of the devil (Sound off, sound on. Sound off, sound on.) Underline The whole thing twice Underline I'm not afraid I'm not afraid Phantom patterns? It's arson Educated guess? It's medicine (Feathers in your cap.) Sing the accidental humor Sing your ego, run in place (Feathers in your cap.) Believe in noble numbers Believe in only disregard (Sound off, sound on. Sound off, sound on.) Underline The whole thing twice Underline I'm not afraid I'm not afraid Everybody shares each dollar Everybody keeps their own promises Everybody pulls the trigger Everybody keeps their own promises Underline The whole thing twice Underline I'm not afraid I'm not afraid

drowned in the barrel of the fall of your history. remind yourself about the lawless ways you sold yourself. a heads up while the heads were down predicted we would wake up for one last time. and sometime in july it was forgotten within earshot. well doesn't that look very much, exactly like a replacement, or the ruin of past life? no! this is the life of the same, death of the nature divided. this is the birth of your name. drowned in the barrel of the fall of your history. did you see it coming or going?

general relation painted it all red, and off the charts and onto the graphs. took up no space, only time. (linear and general.) this is you! this is what you look like! this is you, a frame of reference in elliptic orbit. well, in the interest of those deserters to where the helixed shores house all the unknown-- there never is a fine line. (these deserters to the shores.) ghosts of those i held near, all but shadows silent. ghosts of those i held dear, all but print and screen starred. never ever to be looked upon again. ghosts of those i held near, all but essence easter. ghosts of those i held dear, all but spilled ink over, well they have a few suggestions... why don't you take it back as it breaks your bones, and roll it all out for everyone to see, and see who takes it as a sign. (so why don't you take it back?) this is you! this is what you look like! this is you, a frame of reference in elliptic orbit. as intuitive as you will ever get, you're practically fool proof. as intuitive as you will ever be, you're virtually virtual. and yet so yet so far so far out far out of out of sight.

When you had a jaw You drank and smoked too much When you had a jaw We played Chess for a month You won five games to four You passed out on the floor When you had a jaw Saw Halley's Comet streaking by Saw Perseids light up the sky With telescopes or on our backs The universe was at our grasp Singing Amazing Grace at dawn Teaching me right, teaching me wrong You sure did have a way with song Way back when you had a jaw When you had a jaw We slept under the stars When you had a jaw You raised me at the bars Got real good at pool Turned out a lot like you When you had a jaw Checkmate in seven moves or less Warp zones and Contra codes are pests Sinking the eight ball on the break Skipping the journey to our fate Bring back Amazing Grace at dawn Teaching me right, teaching me wrong Bring back the journey and the song We sang when you had a jaw I struggle to remember your face When you're right in front of me I struggle to remember the ways You aggravated me I struggle with how I must confess I miss your cigarettes For you, the stars are shining bright
