Secrets and Lies Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Hex Breaker (4:41)
So sick of your agenda
All your double-speak's the same
No fear or forgiveness
Incest stagnates

A 'who's who', and "What do you do?"
Measured by the book
Led by the nose and libido
Never an honest look

Race ahead at the back of the line
Fail to see what you signify
Yes I can piss up the wall higher than you
And I won't but the face on that you want me to

So the witches of this industry
Hollered up to Satan, "Please free me!"
Ice-queen libido
Hair of snakes
It's time to question all the choices that you made

We lay claim - Masters
We lay claim - Masters
We say fame - Bastards
We say fame - Bastards

We lay claim - Masters
We lay claim - Masters
We say fame - Bastards
We say fame - Bastards

Masters - Bastards
2. Corpse of Love (5:00)
I saw a crash today
And I thought it was you
Blackened sphere
The crows peck at your face
And I want to kiss you

I saw a crash today
And I wished it was you
No such fear
You swallowed the key that keeps us
In this purgatory

I'm so sad to see you go
Called your name out on the radio
Salutations to the big band
Who's played you out all across the land

Though, no remorse
It's time of course
Congratulations to the big man
For taking you off our weary hands

Go!
Go!
This really is for the best
I've shed tears for less
But I want to kiss you

All that time in your maze
Put my mind completely outta phase
Cerebral theatrics to my detriment
Oh lord please rid me of this sacrament

Courtesans and whores
Closest allies of yours
DId you master this in bastard-house
Did you kiss you Ma' with that mouth?

Go!
Go!
This really is for the best
I've shed tears for less
But I want to kiss you

Go!
Go!
This really is for the best
I've shed tears for less
But I want to kiss you
3. Barnstorm Zombie Revival (3:28)
You came, you saw, you conquered nothing
Wings of your own backyard
Pluck a peacock's feather
Trade for my everlasting revenge
Get the glory bus outta here
Ride the serpent's grey back
Medusa tried to kiss me
So I slipped her the tongue
Stonehearted bitch
All I wanted was some fun

Fortune city, land of the dead
Romero was a visionary
The ol' Bub too, my friend
Barnstorm revival
Wick up your hair and let your legs down
The DJ's a stiff
And we're dusting off the lids

Barnstorm
Barnstorm
Barnstorm
Revival
4. Born Again Nihilist (6:39)
The Nihilist became a priest
The drag queen hung up her heels
"What the hell became of you?"
"You deserted everything I assumed you to be"
"What the hell are we gonna do?"
"Embellish all of the evidence, as soon as can be"

The anchorman was the thief,
The mannequin lived out her dreams,
"What the hell became of you?"
"You pre-empted everything I assumed was true"
"What the hell are we gonna do?"
"Do away with all the scientists, bachelors and their degrees"

We left so many suitors cold
We left them searching, while us we're all sold
No turning back, no turning back,
Bury what's inside, bury what's inside

We doctored all our tales told,
Find all deserters, put them to the wall,
No turning back, no turning back,
Bury what's inside, bury what's inside

We doctored all our tales told,
Find all deserters, put them to the wall,
No turning back, no turning back,
Bury what's inside, bury what's inside
5. The Idealist (3:26)
Some say the winter has begun
But for some spring is beginning
Steady flow while the seasons yearn to shift
A fortified reason for resilience
Oh, if only for such equilibrium
The bunkum takes ones preference
Oh, if you should see that salesman
Ask him to pass on my reference

The rats and the alleys
The clocks and the pressures
I am the idealist
I am the idealist

The rats and the alleys
The clocks and the pressures
I am the idealist
I am the idealist
6. Goddamn This City (7:53)
It's like the heat never leaves
Point to face all random
Graven fears
So far from the humdrum
Poindexters and cigarettes
Trophy wives who haven't married yet
Graven fears
The firm and the gun-run

No kissing for free
Pre-requisites and nominees
All dissing for free
Street thieves and anomolies

The beat never leaves
Point to face all random
Meltdown nears
A living conundrum
Fashionistas, the minute set
Trophy wives who haven't married yet
Meltdown nears
So far from the humdrum

No kissing for free
Pre-requisites and nominees
All dissing for free
Street thieves and anomolies

Pray for the ancients (x4)

Pray for the ancients (x4)
7. What the Crow Saw (7:33)
From town and country they came
O'er fields of golden corn
Driven by plagues among us
Unknown from whence they're born

Her hair was strong and flowing
Her heart so, bounteous
The child so small and sleeping
To wake him, so joyous

Comet came overhead now
Envenom our well once sweet
Dystopic nightmare vision
Well on our city streets

Flee for the hills
Don't you worry about a thing
The scrambling hordes be falling
All over themselves

Comet came overhead now
Envenom our well once sweet
Dystopic nightmare vision
Well on our city streets

Mine eyes, look to the sun for safe home
Mine eyes, won't forget the horror

The plagues are now over
All ashes to the sky
The city lies dormant
And the wind whistles by

A new day dawns once again
And new life begins once again

A new generation
Built in honesty
Then sullied by madness
Inevitably

It came from o'er the hills
It came from o'er the seas
8. Triumverate (4:24)
They say we destroy
With a small amount of decay
A drop in the ocean
A sigh from the brave

Contingent of hope
Damning the grave
Cohorts and comrades
To free the enslaved

Triumvirate in creed
Cannot be dismissed
Morigorn and Morn
Stirring abyss

Amalgam of like minds
A decade to kiss
Farewell to the old
Make true the one wish
9. Mass Appeal Sadness / I Fulfill I [Hidden Track] (23:12)
Believe and evolve
Smother the fires old
Cut through the swathes
Persistence don't grow old
Exit reverie
Time to wise-up, son
The ass and the soul
Nouveau couplets and cliches

The meek shall inherit the earth
If I had my way
Failures and trans-science
No, it's not okay

Abandoned hope, floating belly-up
Pessimist in me, revel in my own.

Lament who I am
The search, it still goes on
Black cloud follows
But at least I'm moving on
Mass appeal sadness
Time to wise up, son
The ass and the soul
Nouveau couplets and cliches

The meek shall inherit the earth
If I had my way
Failures and trans-science
No, it's not okay

Abandoned hope, floating belly-up
Pessimist in me, revel in my own.

We ate the soul to be free
Left at the sun to be me
Safe at the sun can be said
We ate the soul now he's dead

It's a shame that the sun can't be named
Left at the sun to be saved
We at the soul to be free
Left at the sun to me

We ate the soul to be free
Left at the sun to be me
Safe at the sun can be said
We ate the soul now he's dead
