Track Name: Lucid Dementia Show
Hi, My name, is Lucid Dementia, I'm glad that I metcha but I'd rather I'd eatcha I'm a twisted little monster with too much time on my hands, a chip on my shoulder, grows colder and colder I'm the spirit from beyond in this sick man's head, a puppet delusion, a twisted intrusion here to shine a light on to the human disease: Overpopulation (and it's the...)

You see, it's simple, multiplication: when you have a little something then it's worth alot, and when you have a lot of something then it's not worth not, and there's lots and lots and lots and lots of humans, and the more the humans, the less they're worth and the less there's land, and the less there's food, then the more they fight, and the more they steal, and the more they cheat, and the more they lie, and the more they rape, and kill, and kill, and kill.... (and it's the...)

pleased to metchoo we are Lucid Dementia
shining a light in the sewer of your culture
and we're laughing at the roaches and we're laughing at the rats
that are growing, growing, growing, growing...
(and it's the...)
Track Name: Creep
it is cheap how we reap
a list so complete
of the many hypocrites
that we cheat (and we cheat)
out of the blood that they fleet
for their greed and elite
that we keep under heat
of the day we'll concede
for the greatest guillotine
that they will meat (oh yes they'll meet)
oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they will meet...
and we creep...

let the mountain waters seep
into the blood that we keep
of the many hypocrites
that tell it deep, (they tell it deep)
and they wreak when they speak
of the putrid lies they heap
so we treat them like sheep
and count them while they sleep
for the greatest guillotine
that they will meat (oh yes they'll meet)
oh yes, oh yes, oh yes they will meet...
and we creep...

Jump on the scene for the gristentine
pick up the bones of the gristentine
dust for the shadows of the gristentine
the monks on the gallows of the gristentine
scattered into tatters by the gristentine
blood stains splatter for the gristentine
everything shatters for the gristentine
the gristentine, the grinstentine

wouldn't you like to know?
wouldn't you like to see it
wouldn't you like to know?
wouldn't you like to see,
t h e l i s t.
Track Name: Hush
We're bringing it in
we're watching it spin
we've set out the trap
and now and were starting to grin
we've waited so long
for the game to begin
and now that we're here
we know that we'll win

and every time you try to escape
you bring us in a little closer
and every time you try to run
you pull us in a little closer

we will never let you go

(Hush little baby don't you cry
Momma's gonna buy you a brand new lie)

we've rattled the bones
and scattered the sticks
we've shattered the tatters
and we've circled the picks
the cards have been dealt
and the signs have been licked
we drank from the river
now we're sick sick sick.

And everytime we try to escape
you bring us in a little closer
And everytime we try to be free
you pull us in a little closer

You will never let us go.

(Hush little baby don't you cry
Momma's gonna buy you a brand new lie)

now everybodies twisted everybodies twisted
twisted twisted
twisted twisted

and every time you try to escape
you bring us in a little closer
and every time you try to run
you pull us in a little closer

we will never let you go...
Track Name: F.U.T.
Everyone I know, hates to show, what's inside of them.
Everyone I know, wants me to show, what's inside of me. (and I see...)
Everybodies got this fucked up thing
Everybodies got this fucked up thing
Everybodies got...
Everybodies got...
Everybodies got, this fucked, up, thing.

She, said, that, the middle of the road, was the best place to go, cause she didn't want to be the one to cause a problem, didnt want to be the one to bring attention.
She, said, that, when she was a child her father beat her, taught her to stay in the darkened corners, taught to be silent to avoid the punishment.
I, tried, to, show her how the world could be filled with love if she opened up her heart to the slings and arrows, opened up her heart to love I'd known.
She, said, that, she'd never open up to the concept love, her heart was stainless steel, and she would never let me in, no she would never let me in and...

I've, tried, to, forget the memories of my youth, forget the sick and twisted things that occurred by the hands of ones that would hate my innocence.
I've, tried, to, bury the thoughts of the times I was caught and put through the motions of torture and embarassment, run though the ringer of childhood trauma.
I've, learned, that, to stay in the middle is worse then death, to stay in the middle is a silent prison I had to get out, I had to get out.
I try, and I try, to repress, what's inside, and I'll never let you in, no I'll , never let you in, no I'll never let you in, and...
Track Name: Controlled
Don't be controlled by the people around you,
(They'll take away your soul)
(They'll take away your energy)
Don't let control be the prison that bounds you,
(They'll take away your hold)
(They'll take away reality)

And Oh! You'll just give it all away!
(quick blade)
And Oh! You just gave it all away!
(Don't say:)
("You'll stay.")
(You'll stay!)

Oh! They'll just take it all away!
(Your say)
And Oh! They just take it all away!
(You'll stay)
(away)
(Away!)

And Oh! They just make you one of them!
(obey)
And Oh! They just made you one of them!
(Your paid)
(obey)
(Obey)

deep in dreams where you were free,
a single bird that flew in peace,
and sang the song that dead birds sing,
about the day you clipped your wings
and rang the bells of memories
of jezebels and broken rings,
and bleeding from the insect stings,
you hid yourself inside this thing...
Track Name: I Let It Go
lost on a highway
lost on an in between road
feeling forsaken
feeling like a tale untold
A tale filled with darkness
A tale that will leave you cold
with too many pages
for the binding to hold

used like a shovel
to bury an unmarked grave
thrown to the ground
thrown to rust in the rain
will I ever be found
will I ever be free from this pain
soiled and discarded
to be found but to never be saved

I let it go
(but the anger is rising)
I let it go
(as they watch you bleed)
I let it go
(everyday they use you)
I let it go
(you will never break free)

twisting like a wire
I am scorned
feeling in the darkness
pricking my finger on a thorn
losing all feeling
forgetting where the pain did start
the fires growing higher
burning a hole in my heart

I am not your little girl
I am not your precious thing
I am not your dainty flower
I am full of strength and power
Track Name: When
sickness like a blister she was stolden all away
gone without a goodbye she was gone without a trace
and we searched into the thicket and we searched into the streets
and we searched into the ditches and the valleys and the streams.
we put up all the posters and we sent out the alert
in hopes that with a little luck we'll find the girl unhurt
but the minutes turned to hours and the hours turned to days
and the night turned into darkness and our hope began to fade
and we cried and we cried that she'd crawl out of the hole
and we tried and we tried that she'd crawl out of the hole
and we screamed and we sighed that she'd crawl out of the hole
by some miricle design that she'd crawl out of the hole
and every second she's not found and every second that she's gone
the night is growing darker and the parents sing this song:

when will you, come home?
Breaking down, Breaking down...

Somewhere in the darkness there's a vessel of despair
for all the pain he's brought this world won't leave him in repair
gone is any hope for peace his conciousness will tear
like a coat that's made of molten lead his guiltyness will wear
Innocence you've broken with you're dirty dirty hands
The beauty that you covet is made ugly by your hands
in your reflected image is not that of a mans
you're a sick and twisted bastard and the blood is on your hands
and we cried and we cried that she'd crawl out of the hole
and we tried and we tried that she'd crawl out of the hole
and we screamed and we sighed that she'd crawl out of the hole
by some miricle design that she'd crawl out of the hole
and every second she's not found and every second gone
the night is growing darker and the parents sing this song:
Track Name: Queer
Do you like what you see?
or does the sight of me make you angry?
And yes, I know I'm a freak
but the anger you feel is the mirror you see.
Do you think you are free?
Do you think you can leave?
wouldn't you be happy, wouldn't you be happy?
everybodies happy, when I bleed.

And I am just a queer to you now? (isn't it what, you wanted to see?)
And I am just a queer to you now? (to go to a show, and laugh at the freaks)

I know that I'm not shit.
thats why I keep, drinking your spit
and working hard, to stay in this pit, and
kneeling to the bourgeois in spite of it.
And I know, not all humans are bad, but
most of you bastards make me sad, And,
I am a freak, and, I am the freak
you ever get the feeling that, you've been had?

I am a mirror.
I reflect what YOU are.
Now point and laugh
Just as they tell you to do.

Now point and laugh,
Just as they tell you to do.
Track Name: I Don't Belong
too many faces staring at me
too many places, I don't recognize
too many twists and turns in this city
it makes me feel so paralyzed
I try to look for answers in the
many signs I try to read
but all I find are dead end alleys
that never tell me what I need.
Everyday it's indecision
everyday I try to hide,
from this world of mass confusion
and in my head it screams inside

I don't belong here...

I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere
I must have made a bad decision
I must have wronged some grand committee
and now I have this deep incision
I try to get my head together
I try to pull my face on tight
the string was made of broken leather
I got so sick I thought I'd die
Everyday it's indecision
everyday I try to hide,
from this world of mass confusion
and in my head it screams inside

Let me out.

Everyday it's indecision
everyday I try to hide,
from this world of mass confusion
and in my head it screams inside
Track Name: Living In Hell
You live in a prison
working all week long
to support the metrics
knowing somethings wrong
where will your life go
living in a cage
trying to get one last credit
holding down the rage
this will be the last time
you tell yourself
this will be the last time
living in hell

Now your living, in hell.

machine clicks wake up
machine clicks work
machine clicks go home
machine clicks sleep
and when you dream
you dream of machines
getting you ready
for the next scene
this will be the last day
you tell yourself
this will be the last day
living in hell

someday you'll wake up
and look back in time
and all the achievements
and wonder why
you lived like a robot
keeping with the plan
following in the footsteps
now lost in the sand
this will be the last time
you tell yourself
this will be the last time
living hell.
Track Name: Evil's Garden
Won't you come and dance with me,
in evil's garden?
Won't you come and walk with me,
in evil's garden?
Won't you come and dance with me,
in evil's garden?
Won't you come and talk with me,
in evil's garden?

Every nation in the human world was born through the fires of violence.
Every god in the human world has been a tool of violence.
Every Generation in the human world, has had it's sheep of violence.
And the hateful sheep of the human world teach their children in violence.

This land is my land, and this land is yours.
Stay off of my land, and I'll stand on yours.
This god is my god, and that god is yours.
your god says kill me, my god is yours.

the sheep of hate, will follow
and we live in blood
and we sleep in blood
and we love in blood
and we breed in blood
and we work in blood
and we play in blood
and we pray in blood
and we'll pay in blood
the sheep of hate, will follow

Won't you come and dance with me,
in evil's garden?
Won't you come and walk with me,
in evil's garden?
Won't you come and dance with me,
in evil's garden?
Won't you come make love to me,
in evil's garden?
Track Name: The Dirtiest Word
The dirtiest word that we ever heard,
came out of the mouth, of a dirty bird
causing, kingdoms to collapse
and races to burn
It was the dirtiest word that we ever heard.

...the dirtiest word that we ever heard,
...the dirtiest word that we ever heard,
...the dirtiest word that we ever heard,
is G**, is G**

now let me be, perfectly clear,
the power of this word, is extremely queer,
from far away, or very near
it's the dirtiest word you could ever hear
hypocrites and liars, wield it like fire
to control the sheep, to control the hurd
people get mad, the pressure grows higher
it's the dirtiest word that we ever heard

it's the perfect toolx8

It was the diriest word that we ever heard.
