Track Name: Spiritual Vigilante (MVVol1)
Spiritual Vigilante

I was leaving Boston
With a suitcase under my arm
Yeah, I was leaving Boston
This heavy suitcase under my arm
The sheriff's deputy tried to save me
But the arm of the law ain't that long…
Track Name: The Ballad Of The Headless Horseman From Dimension X (MVVol1)
The Ballad Of The Headless Horseman From Dimension X

(A Tribute To The Music Of Ham)

<Verse 1>

He's got nothing in common
Except with Tutankhamen
Johnny Paycheque still pays his rent
Listening to songs from yesterday
He sends letters of longing
To the Ministry of Truth
Hoping that one day
Ted Spacely might make it home

<Chorus>

He doesn't like to admit
That he has no head anymore
But instead he will predict
The resignation of noble men
He doesn't like to admit
That he has no head anymore
But instead he will predict
The resignation of noble men

<Verse 2>

Drifting through interspace
Trying to finish the race
In a suped up drag-mobile
Looking for Phylifius (from Icarn 3)
He once loved the woman from Diablos
Because she was too evil
Driving down route 43
Shouting "Word up from the mother ship!"

<Chorus>

<Bridge>

Redistribute his sound
In the magnetic fury
Because everybody knows
To call off the air raids
Who'll drop the bomb?
Who'll drop the bomb?
Who'll drop the bomb?
Track Name: Debbie Two-Knees (MVVol1)
Debbie Two-Knees

She says she's gonna walk strong
Her determination carries her along
Through the pain when the weather changes

Writing letters because she will fight
For her principals & what she knows is right
Because she knows she is the voice of change

Debbie operates on her needs
While the Doctors operate on her knees
No matter the weather
She keeps it together
She will walk strong
She will walk on
Walk on

Walk on
Walk on
Her determination carries her along
Walk on
Walk on
Track Name: Ouroboros (w/ PopMythology) (MVVol1)
Ourobors

pick the self apart one scale at a time
feed myself each piece to the rhythm of breath
burrow through the ground, seek out every false desire
i’m not swimming against the current, i’m
embracing the freedom hidden in this death
i’m setting this effigy of myself afire

i feared the loss of everything but i
must lose everything to gain something, i
must reclaim my own false creation, i
am Saturn taking apart his own son

to be filled i must empty the vessel
pour out every last delusion held inside
and then shatter the container that once kept it
i will tear down the Tower of Babel
among the loss and ruin i will abide
until what digs itself out is my freed spirit

i feared the loss of everything but i
must lose everything to gain something, i
must reclaim my own false creation, i
am sacrificing myself to the Sun

who i thought i was must be crucified
so as to peer beyond the fictitious veil
to see the face of Self that cannot be undone
and so I coil around and face my end
swallow deep, impale my throat upon my tail
and keep spiraling till death and rebirth are one

i feared the loss of everything but i
must lose everything to gain something, i
must reclaim my own false creation, i
am recircling the path of the Son
