Track Name: SHUT DOWN/SHOT OUT
Invade me
Waterboard Me
Off with the new king’s head

I will sink in this ship of troubled dreams
While in debt with the country’s dead

Your oil in your big boy soil
Will deport my cocaine soul
If the ministry of love calls my name
Will the shocks feel the same?

Shut down/Shot out
Shut down/Shot out
Shut down/Shot out
And we’ll burn

Warden, warden wake me from the devil’s dreams
And discuss our future plans
In the night the red and the white blew my fucking brains out, man
And the mirror’s got a million holes for the eyes to devour and hide
Do we hear the poor/with the power/say “I”?

Shut down/Shot out
Shut down/Shot out
Shut down/Shot out
And we’ll burn

And on that night of the final act
The poison rolled through you all the same
While we were running up the bill for the flies
Buzzing around the USA
And the priest dipped his calloused fingers in the oil
And cried for your pious soul
And I caught that violent glow in my brothers’ eyes from a thoughtcrime long ago

And I’m watched him turn (2x)
And we’ll watch it burn (2x)

Shut down/Shot out
Shut down/Shot out
Shut down/Shot out
And we’ll burn
Track Name: SATELLITE OF LEAD
So far so dead
a heart’s that’s too big to fail
My letter to them read:
I fought the war and bled…

Locked up and loved
Entombed of the nation
Come and Join my party and
Let God sort ‘em out

Thought to pay the rent
But I’d rather buy a gun
And keep out all my friends
And shoot out all the love

and
Fund the war in my head (3x)
…Stop the war in my head

Wandering wandering dead
I fought the war and bled…
Wandering wandering dead
I’ll be the war instead

Locked up and loved
Entombed of the nation
Satellite of lead
Return me to my head

(spoken)and we all watch that teleprompter grow soooo hard in your mouth…
and you spit it out

And we’re talkin’ the people going down down down (4x)
And we telling all the people going down down down (4x)

Wandering wandering dead
I fought the war and bled…
Wandering wandering dead
I am the war instead

Locked up and loved
Entombed of the nation
Ghost of the dead
Return me to my head
Track Name: LOVE WAS CALLING YOUR NAME
There’s a kingdom of fool’s gold
On top of that mountain
Where the stars meet the obscene
Where your feet touch the sea

And any way it’s all fiction
And any way you are free
You are the nameless stranger
And she said unto me

“Love Was Calling Your Name” (4X)

And all of the rattled city kids
Called all the police to retreat
When the lights went out between my country’s eyes
I was the last to believe

Was it some sort of answer?
Was it the last of our days?

Well I guess there’s no looking back now
So I guess let’s misbehave

Love Was Calling Your Name (4X)

Oh dead devil send a message out loud
Through the barrel of this loaded gun

And only half of the days are left
So you really gotta be someone

Am I the last of the killers?
Was that the last of the dead?

And his name was on the forbidden lips
Of a time that had finally come

And it was my only song (4X)

Love Was Calling Your Name (8X)
Track Name: WITNESS/WEAKNESS
Your lover a flower
Pinned on a sea
But his island was sinking
along with you and me

I was so reckless that I sang my own song
Could they convict me of doing it wrong?

What’s left there to complicate?
Who’s left to mediate?
I am the wound and yet the blade
Just a lost child asleep in a daze

The terror is your error
What could it possibly mean?
I was a ghost ship
With a bow that haunted me

A Fifth Avenue Freeze Out
Of your wife and your kid
Will you tell the papers
What those bad men did?

Take 2: flowers bloom again
Yelled Out: “I remember the names!”
And my medication has taken its place
Suede Denim Secret police now I face


I’m your witness
I'm your weakness
