Track Name: Seconds
You are a Stranger...
I see you in the mirror almost every day,
You are a Mirror...
Reflecting every second of the "here and now"...

Chorus- And where does it all go?
Time's Mighty River Flow!
It takes us back to Nothingness ,
Then it's "Seconds out"...
For the "Final bout"!

You owe God Nothing...
Not the Father, or the Son...even the Holy Ghost!
You Sons of Allah...
You Israelites, you Sodomites...you'll turn to Dust...

Chorus
You are a stranger (x4)
Track Name: Destination Satan
Destination Satan.

The first time that I saw Him
He was standing all alone,
He'd just stepped off a wooden cross,
He said He's going home;
The blood flowed from His Crown of Thorns
I said -"You shouldn't be on your own!"
He said -"Joe Zero you can come with me...
I got business back in Rome!".

Chorus- Destination Satan...
It's not my idea of fun!
Operation Satan...
It's not my idea!P

The second time I saw Him
He was standing in a crowd,
He was preaching to just everyone
But they thought He was a clown...
In the world wide media circus
They call the Internet,
He said-"You all better mark my words...
Or you'll live to regret it!"

Chorus

The last time that I saw Him
He was floating in the sky,
Around Him was a gathering storm
And tears from Angels' Eyes;
He said - "You didn't believe me,
So my ass you can kiss...
Look up to the Fiery Sky...
HERE COME THE APOCALYPSE!"
Track Name: Who She Was
Who She Was.

Compared to someone younger
She didn't act any older
Than the first time that I saw her
Many years ago...
Though her hair had turned to silver
And her eyes still shone like diamonds
She'd lost a certain something
But that happens to us all...

Chorus- And then the Winter took her
Put her in a pocket...
A vacuum filled with cold and ice and snow,
Then Darkness did surround her
Eased away her memories...
Till she could not remember who she was...
No, she could not remember who she was.

One day she met a stranger
A face now unfamiliar
They talked and talked for hours
Till the setting of the sun...
And then the stranger left her
Said goodbye and kissed her
Only the people watching
Knew that he was her son...

Chorus- (2) And so...
(3) The winter finally...

[F#CK DEMENTIA...]
Track Name: Open For Business
Open for Business.

You can nail your thesis
To a church door of your choice,
Or you can broadcast sermons
In a radio station voice,
Or you can seek donations
For your own religious brand,
Or you can sell "Indulgences"
To promote the Papal scam!

Chorus- Open for business
At the blinking of God's Eye,
Open for business
So you won't try...
To sell your Soul some day!
To give your Soul away!

You see Arab minarets
Are just like Christian spires,
And the Pantheon of Demi-gods
Greco-Roman, ain't required!
David's Star becomes a Pentangle
For Satan to enflame,
And the Cross becomes a Swastika...
To me they're all the same!

Chorus....
Track Name: The Corpse That Snored!
The Corpse that Snored!

Dum-de-diddily-dum-de-dum-diddily-dum-de-DIE!!!
Track Name: META
META.

The Breath of Life is the only thing
That Strange Existence
Needs to shape all the World,
"To Be" but not to "Not to Be"...
It's so important to spread new life 'round the World... (x3)
...Spread new life 'round OUR World...
Track Name: META Too
META Too

If it wasn't for you I would walk right out of my life,
Into another room where the temperature feels like ice...
And I would wait for you,
Ready for the "going through",
Yes I would wait for you
With my undying love...

Chorus- Oh, Eternal Love (x3)
I'll wait in Time for you...

If it wasn't for you I would keep myself to myself,
I'd lock myself away and I would never speak to anyone else... (for a while!)
And then you came along,
With your suitcase and a key ( it's this song!)
Oh yes you made me strong
With your undying love...
Track Name: META III
META III.

They're sending gifts to Princes
While their babies die, uncared,
Ain't that just the height of "Class stupidity"?
Their lives are rotting roses
In a one-way love affair...
I don't think they hear Life's Silent Poetry...

Chorus- Hey, pretty baby you can pray but you can't see,
The tangled Web of Darkness
That's the Veil of Mystery,
Hey hey hey, pretty baby you can pray but you don't know.
The Mighty Mass of Atoms
That just goes to make your Soul!

Yeah, everyone's a winner now
In the Land of the Dead,
The Zombies and the Vampires are all gathering...
They're watching television-
"It's the English Civil War!"
They touched 4 Stations of the Cross
As they watched Rome burn!
Track Name: META IV
META IV.

If it wasn't for you I would walk right out of my life,
Into another room where the temperature feels like ice...
And I would wait for you,
Ready for the "going through",
Yes I would wait for you
With my undying love...

Chorus- Oh, Eternal Love (x3)
I'll wait in Time for you...

If it wasn't for you I would keep myself to myself,
I'd lock myself away and I would never speak to anyone else... (for a while!)
And then you came along,
With your suitcase and a key ( it's this song!)
Oh yes you made me strong
With your undying love...
Track Name: METATIME
METATIME.

When it's over...
And Time's smoke rings are all gone...
In the Here-after...
Will Soul-fragments linger on?
And if I raise my hand to God
(An empty gesture to the Void?)
...I'll still be waiting for your call,
Yes, I'll still be waiting for your call...
When I close my eyes...
For the final time...
Track Name: I Testify
I Testify.

Locked up in the box of Sense Illusions,
This prison's the only one we've got,
The "Music of the Spheres" only deludes us,
Like Cosmic Sirens luring us to rocks...

Chorus- I Testify! Life is not a lullaby!
I Testify! You make your choices then you die!
I Testify! You won't need an alibi!
I Testify! You won't get a second chance! NO!!

You know every answer must be questioned,
Even if it's the only one we've got,
And looking up at the Stars brings me back down to Earth,
One foot in the grave with no new birth...
Track Name: Brave New World
Brave New World.

Don't close your eyes it's too damned cold tonight (too damned cold), x2
I'm waiting, just waiting for the heat to rise (heat to rise), x2

There's nothing on the Earth worth dying for (dying for), x2
And there's nothing on the Earth worth killing for (killing for), x2

We're all like sponges soaking up experience (experience), x2
And when the End comes it'll still not make any sense (any sense), x2
Track Name: The Quiet Song
The Quiet Song.

The Quiet Song....it waits for me,
The Quiet Song...it's all I ever need...
It rests in the bosom like a cold machine,
Waiting, just like an answer-phone.
Track Name: Scorpio Unbound
Scorpio Unbound.

I'll take a bite of the apple from the Tree of Life (uh ha, uh ha),
Mistress Knowledge gonna be my wife (uh ha, uh ha),

Calling all you Pseudocrats who think you know it all,
You can take my telescope and stick it up your Soul,
You search for Infinity but all I see are Stars!
That's why I'm S-C-O-R-P-I-O UNBOUND!
Scorpio Unbound... Scorpio Unbound...Scorpio Unbound...

You can make a Pact with the Devil for Eternal Life (uh ha, uh ha),
But this won't save you from Eternal Night. (uh ha, uh ha),

You can pick the pocket of a passing God-of-Light,
And you can ask the Angels what is wrong and what is right,
But you won't find no answers coz it's all a LOAD OF SHITE!
That's why I'm S-C-O-R-P-I-O UNBOUND!
Scorpio Unbound...Scorpio Unbound...Scorpio Unbound..
Track Name: Before The Fall
Before the Fall.

There's nothing as sad as an unread book,
Or a rock 'n' roll song without a hook,
Or an honest man who's forced to lie,
Or a Third World baby who's born to die,
Or a Soulless Void of Infinite Mass,
Or a serial killer's aftermath,
Or a God that's absent from the scene
Of the crime where He destroyed our Dreams...

Chorus- Before the Fall. (x2)
Do you know what came before the Fall?

There's nothing as sad as Humanity,
Or a Culture filled with apathy,
Or an army marching off to War,
Or the pointless deaths of a billion Stars,
Or the Silent Cries in the abattoir,
Or the Unhealed Wounds of your Saviour,
Or the fact or fiction of Eternal Life,
Or how we've all forgotten what it was like...
Track Name: The Story Of My Heart (Bonus track)
The Story of my Heart.

This is the Story of my Heart
And the times I tried to write about it,
I felt the Strange Fear from the start
Darkly, welling from the depths inside me...
Hey, hey, what could I say that would really interest you?
Ho, Ho, where do I go when this old life is through?

Chorus- I say NO!
Life flows where the eye can't see,
Where the Spirit's unconsciously free,
When the World melts finally 'round me....

This is the Story of my Soul
Ya know, I just can't put my finger on it!
Perhaps it's fear of no control?
And will power is a strange illusion?
Hey, hey, what could I say that would really interest you?
Ho, Ho, where do I go when this old life is through?

Chorus... Sha la la la, lat dat de da
Sha la la la, lat dat de die ya...
Track Name: Bad Souls (Bonus track)
Bad Souls.

Alcohol has turned my Soul to stone,
Cyborg-skin is covering up my bones!
I see people watching every day,
I close my eyes and wish they'd go away!

Chorus- For there's some Bad Souls, (x4)
...in the World.

You can't reach me I haven't got a telephone!
Cyborg-skin is covering up my rattlin' bones!
All I got right now's this hard old Heart of Stone...
This Heart of Stone... (x4)
Track Name: Burnin' Bush (Bonus Track)
Burnin' Bush.

Do you ever wonder why the world drives you insane?
Making you rail against your Nature?
They're selling your Soul for some "Capital Gain",
Banking on you Mortgaging your future!

Chorus- Fee Fi, Fo Fum
Beware the "Invisible Hand",
You won't need the Golden Calf
While you're worshiping the Burnin' Bush. (Hey, Hey, Hey!)

We present to you the Spirit of the Times,
The Zeitgeist revealed in all it's Glory!
You gotta break the chains, chase the Ghost from your mind,
Free yourself to write your own (His)Story...

Chorus... Hey, Hey, Hey,
U.S.A.!
