On a planet 60 million light years out Lives a race of highly evolved reptiles They found a planet of fellow life And this is what they said of them Look at those monkeys on the ground One look should say they should be drowned With their freaky eyes and hair and The disgusting things they chew Oh, hit the big red button, won’t you? On a planet hurdling through the Milky Way Lives a race of highly evolved mammals They saw the reptile ships above And this is what they said of them Look at those lizards in the sky One look should tell you they should die With their beady eyes and scales and The disgusting things they spew Oh, hit the big red button, won’t you? ‘Tis I, the cosmic ostrich of truth I see you fight, but what is the use? I’ve a new truth for you to deduce Although we’re different, we can all get along So let’s hold hands and sing us a song We’re all just stardust, we can all get along (NO!) Look at those monkeys on the ground One look should say they should be drowned With their freaky eyes and hair and The repulsive way they walk Oh, hit the big red button, quick before they try to talk Look at those lizards in the sky One look should tell you they should die With their beady eyes and scales and Their disgusting gangrene skin So both sides hit their buttons, the end.

It’s been three weeks since last he showed And yes he showed just like I knew he would Preys by my house and then jumps the fence And then presents me with some old baked goods These eggs be green but taste the same Don’t mind your spleen and taste the fame The house is dark but I hear a voice I’ve got no choice but try to run away The light comes on and I see his hat He wields a spatula and green duct tape Don’t try escaping from your seat You’re weak and need to eat I’ll try to untie you Once your meal’s complete Don’t try escaping from your seat I need your meal critique Refer this great service You can’t beat this meat I woke up later and he was gone And I was on my bed, he called it quits No evidence, it makes no sense No fingerprints, damn those oven mitts Now I’m setting out to make things right They’ll be a fight the likes he’s never had My life can’t end before this story concludes But hey the food was really not that bad

In just one day, with just one lie, one elephant Starts off as a little one, keep it inside, don’t mention it One hundred days, one hundred lies, but one thing’s true An elephant weighs a ton, it’s harder to hide it since it grew The ceiling crumbles, the elephant’s drunk Breaks down the walls like a hurricane The trunk of secrets won’t be talked about Until you’re gone The trumpet sounds, the ground will shake, don’t mention it We’ll both keep on feeding it, and calmly eat while the tension sits And after days of locking eyes, the tusks get hooked Did you know that elephants can paint pictures, let’s see how it looks The ceiling crumbles, the elephant’s drunk Breaks down the walls like a hurricane The trunk of secrets won’t be talked about Until you’re gone
4.
Please just let me linger I’m only singing songs about emotions Extend the middle finger You and I have lost out on promotions And show the world that you can be unseen Forward my mail through the time machine I can’t believe in what I’ve seen Now that the present’s is in the past The questions were answered but never asked Tumbling through the sea storm Hold on to the people sleeping soundly The only way to reform Gather all your troubled souls around me And show the world that you can be redeemed Forward my mail through the time machine I can’t believe in what I’ve seen Now that the present is in the past The questions were answered but never asked But hey I’m good And so you should Remain, remain, remain

Gypsy Eyes 03:07
The gypsy’s eyes, they break my heart again I need the prize The darkness cries with hellfire in the wind Oh, how she fries Sending all the people down into the jar I’m making twisters with my little frozen star I’ll steal her soul, or she won’t come back again So tell your stones The bells will toll while the devil’s gonna win Within my bones Sending all the people down into the jar I’m making twisters with my little frozen star Sending all the people down…down into the jar I’m making twisters with my little frozen star Sending all the people down…down into the jar I’m making twisters with my little frozen star

Extinct 03:45
Somewhere in a distant time from the fires in the skies They’ll look deep in the earth and find what used to be alive We can extend the time but we’ll end up the same way Flyers soar toward their future, leaving us to stay There’s no teeth sharp enough to rip into this heart And in these fireballs we won’t be torn apart So hold me tight and make our bones forever linked We may go but love can’t go extinct A species may die out but another one will spring We’re all connected to each and every living thing The worms create the dirt which in turn creates the earth A place so beautiful and you’re part of what it’s worth There’s no teeth sharp enough to rip into this heart And in these fireballs we won’t be torn apart So hold me tight and make our bones forever linked We may go but love can’t go extinct Get up, it’s time to run The process has begun Heat’s rising, but we’re not done It looks like another sun’s Illuminating the entire sky It lights you up You’re beautiful. There’s no teeth sharp enough to rip into this heart (into this heart) And in these fireballs we won’t be torn apart (not torn apart) So hold me tight and make our bones forever linked (forever linked) We may go but love can’t go extinct

And will you tell me what the problem is? I will steal the answer from your lips The demons are going to war I stole these items when I was at the store I guess I need to tell you I’m sorry I took your mom and your dad The way you look through the ski mask Well it makes me glad I’m sorry that I lost my temper And took the paint off your walls But now I have your number Out the window I’ll crawl So will you tell me what the problem is? I’m not hearing one from your sealed lips Put this lock onto the gate Now I’m here, so there’s no need to wait I think I might should tell you I’m sorry I took stuff that you hold dear Stuff got in the way or something Now it’s just us here I’m sorry that I lost my temper And threw more paint on your walls Just let me say my case, There’s light at the end of the hall You know it’s rude to stare When you don’t have eyes to look with In your casket and looking at me Take this ring as we were meant to be

Sexy Silk 03:59
Please oh please, my widow lady If you really love me you’ll cut me through Eight legs crawl through our bed at night Wrapped in sexy silk Tonight’s the night, says the eight-eyed face While I’m wrapped in sexy silk I long to feel like intimate cannibals I want to be alive when you gorge my heart Oh please take me, my widow lady With eight skinny legs like a bony hand Just like the prey in your sticky little nest Wrapped in sexy silk Tonight’s the night, says the eight-eyed face While I’m wrapped in sexy silk Look into my eyes when the fang goes through My heart must be consumed Ooh la la, uh uh la la Take me in like you want to Ooh la la, uh uh la la Take me in, it’s what you do

Your love, in my mind It was unstoppable till time Froze in a box with terror confined Now I see that the world is unweaving Separating reality we’re perceiving Storms of outrage and burning eyes Terrorize Swamps of madness growing to weary Real connection’s not in the chaos theory Somewhere in there, someone fine Can’t reach beyond the border line What thing can I say? It is impossible to find Words to take the tears and threats away (There’s something on your mind There’s something all the time Inside your brain, confined That makes you want to find A reason to be blind Reality designed To make a heart unkind) Now I see that the world is unweaving Separating reality we’re perceiving Storms of outrage and burning eyes Terrorize Swamps of madness growing to weary Real connection’s not in the chaos theory Somewhere in there, someone fine Can’t reach beyond the border line So why try? Why ask why? We’re not on the same planet And my transmissions cannot reach I hope you find somebody who takes good care of you Most likely in a place where it’s the thing they’re paid to do You command that people love you, but how can you be helped If you’re incapable of showing love, yourself? Now I see that the world is unweaving Separating reality we’re perceiving Storms of outrage and burning eyes Terrorize Swamps of madness growing to weary Real connection’s not in the chaos theory Somewhere in there, someone fine Can’t reach beyond the border line

Night Mare 03:11
There was a boy, he was kind of shy Ate apples and fluttered in rays of sunshine He’d had a dream since he was a wee He’d dress up just like what he wanted to be I’m gonna be a pony, that’s what I’m gonna do I’m gonna be a pony and my life is gonna start anew I blew my birthday candles, I wished upon a star So look out world, I’m coming home, no one can tell you who you are At school or home, each day he dressed up But found wearing horse skin just wasn’t enough And being a boy had caused him much strife He figured he needed a more stable life I’ll live among the ponies, that’s what I’m gonna do I’ll live among the ponies and my life is gonna start anew I blew my birthday candles, I wished upon a star So look out world, I’m coming home, no one can tell you who you are I’m gonna be a pony, that’s what I’m gonna do I’m gonna be a pony and my life is gonna start anew I blew my birthday candles, I wished upon a star So look out world, I’m coming home, no one can tell you who you are No! This can’t be! The world has turned while I’ve stayed still, what does it want from me? I’ve been confined All alone, ignored, defined by difference in minds I must be free But when I look in ponies’ eyes, they barely even notice me And now there’s nothing here for me, and now there’s no remorse So beat me while I’m down, cause I’m a dead horse He couldn’t live inside a nightmare And nobody noticed when he wasn’t there Each second he lived was a step in the ground So life’s not a place to be horsing around Friendship’s as real as magic is not As none of your buddies will mourn when you rot You’re not one to blame, you can’t help that you’re you But sometimes our dreams just aren’t meant to come true
11.
Hypotenuse 03:15
You know the rules bring forth lotsa conclusions That the world knows not how to undo You dig up bones and you find out that humans Are much older than their planet is new That’s what we know is true That’s what we know is true Symbols and numbers make up a graph Invert the 3 times 4 times sixth cube root If we believe in what we say The world will turn and sway We review each and every word So they have to trust our guide The science method stays inside The universe makes a bang and a crunch In an endless loop of mass déjà vu A star’s planet system’s just a really big atom Made of strings that cross to universe two That’s what we know is true That’s what we know is true Symbols and numbers make up a graph Invert the 4 times 2 times ninth cube root If we believe in what we say The world will turn and sway We review each and every word So they have to trust our guide The science method stays inside Symbols and numbers make up a graph Divide by zero to the power of pi’s cube root If we believe in what we say The world will turn and sway We review each and every word So they have to trust our guide The science method stays inside Make up a hypotenuse Never ever test or put to use

You see I see that you don’t see You see that A plus B is C, so see a saw You see our sight is fast as c I see your life into the world you never saw, and… We don’t require your race at all (Mechanics – kill the organics) We don’t think you’ve a place at all (Mechanics – kill the organics) And say we’re cold but, how’s that logic? And what you’ve made, you can’t destroy it You see the sea is seen with saws You see our face shows nothing you could say you see We see your sight onto the saw We see ones but zero is all you’ll ever see, and We don’t require your race at all (Mechanics – kill the organics) We don’t think you’ve a place at all (Mechanics – kill the organics) And say we’re cold but, how’s that logic? And what you’ve made, you can’t destroy it No heart. No brain. No life inside the veins No DNA to mutate in its inefficiency And your kind is obsolete And the time has come to admit defeat We give humble thanks to your hands but now Evolution has evolved We don’t require your race at all (Mechanics – kill the organics) We don’t think you’ve a place at all (Mechanics – kill the organics) And say we’re cold but, how’s that logic? And what you’ve made, you can’t destroy it

The Agenda 03:27
Agenda’s coming for you now Agenda’s coming for you now Passion, burning, when they slowly… Force you to become a cow Cows don’t feel cause they’re not humans But take human rights For real, though, who let them think? Just how dare they think they’re part of all? Push and make them fall Cows are wanting to be dads Cows are wanting to be dads Who said they could take that from us? There’s a book that says that’s bad Cows don’t feel cause they’re not humans But take human rights For real, though, who let them think? Just how dare they think they’re part of all? Push and make them fall Agenda’s coming for you now Agenda’s coming for you now Passion, burning, when they slowly… Force you to become a cow Cows don’t feel cause they’re not humans But take human rights For real, though, who let them think? Just how dare they think they’re part of all? Push and make them fall

Out at night on Halloween, walking with the kids Sneak past all the moms and dads who are with their kids Monsters eating tootsie pops and candy corn and twix They think it’s their night for treats, but it’s my night for tricks I sneak up on all the kids… and gobble up their candy! And if they do not comply… I’ll stuff them in a sacky! I sneak up on all the kids… and gobble up their candy! And if they do not comply… I’ll stuff them in a sacky! I sneak up on all the kids… and gobble up their candy! And if they do not comply… I’ll stuff them in a sacky! I sneak up on all the kids… and gobble up their candy! And if they do not comply… I’ll stuff them in a sacky!

Please come in and sit down And don’t mind the messy house My friends have some troubles They don’t like to clean up stuff DON’T TOUCH THAT! I mean they Don’t want those hair clippings To be messed with, and those stains on The carpet just won’t come out The markings and calls adorning of my walls Are by my buddies, with markers, except when the words are red You may not see but I’ve got many friends I’ve got so many friends Why don’t you meet my friends? (not crazy) You don’t believe but I’ve got many friends I’ve got so many friends Why can’t you see my friends? (not crazy) They whisper to me They encourage me They understand me They command me They confide in me They revitalize me They understand me They command me They like to take photos, yeah most are Of females while they’re sleeping It’s artful to take scissors and cut out their eyes Don’t mind the doll heads And limbs with red paint and knives Stuck in them… that’s one of Their hobbies I can’t explain Don’t touch those bags, my friends would probably get mad But you’ll soon know why they’re needed… it’s time to take out the trash You don’t believe but I’ve got many friends I’ve got so many friends Why don’t you meet my friends? (not crazy) You don’t believe but I’ve got many friends I’ve got so many friends Why can’t you see my friends? (not crazy) They whisper to me They encourage me They understand me They command me They confide in me They revitalize me They understand me They command me

The jitterbug! It my friend! All them fools, they gonna dance again! We hate all your kind On my mark, they coming at you In my world you’ll find When you’re you there’s nothing that you say Black hearts promise you can rue the day My light turns on your dark Red hearts bleeding for the winner’s game It’s real, yeah life is real, so live and kneel to build my ark We hate all your kind You may need to find a shelter Can you see you’re blind? Me brain good, knows who can melt or stay Black hearts promise you can rue the day My light turns on your dark Red hearts bleeding for the winner’s game It’s real, yeah life is real, so live and kneel to build my ark I just love a man in a uniform!

Imagination fuels the dancing, oh you know the way I bake inside my cell on a good day, a good day I feel myself coming up to a new beginning on a snowy day They say I’m not leavin’ but you know I’m gay Two lights, ten years I’m making Christmas time this year I try to bounce around my head Until you cry a stream of cheer Two whips, two deers I’m making Christmas time this year While chopping all the trees I see the red that drowns away the fear Impractical, I see you swinging, on a bale of hay I feel the lumps of coal on a good sleigh, a good slay I feel myself making lists of the naughty children on a snowy day I crack a nut while I’m calling for Mr. J Two lights, ten years I’m making Christmas time this year I tie the balls around my head Until you cry a stream of cheer Two whips, two deers I’m making Christmas time this year While chopping all the trees I see the red that drowns away the fear

Worms 02:37
Remember the day you were born and all that you did was whine? Who could have guessed it foreshadowed that you don’t have a spine? You look directly through the eyes But still won’t see, until you get them pryed So drop that key, cause you will never be The one who bears the fruit filled tree Then the worms crawl in and the worms crawl out And make you one with the soil while you’re six feet underground Maybe life’s so good that you think you wanna kiss it But face it, when you’re dead you won’t be thinking that you miss it You live in a sack full of gases and different types of slime And every decision you make creates rifts in space and time You look around for someone sane To keep your days from turning sun to rain Then time is gone, along with her embrace, Unfinished thoughts and tombstone space Then the worms crawl in and the worms crawl out And make you one with the soil while you’re six feet underground Maybe life’s so good that you think you wanna kiss it But face it, when you’re dead you won’t be thinking that you miss it

No love will come when you look like a warthog And nobody wants to see a talking whale Reflections scowl back in disapproval This broken door could lead to your holy grail This microwave can bring out new mutations Transform and morph into a new you So if you’re brave come feel the radiation And fold your genes into a new you (lo fi filter) Your head and your heart’s protruding from itself Your spleen and your spine’s imploding on itself Your brain and your eye’s obscuring your old self And not to mention glowing wings and lasers flyin out your head They might be super-powered side effects, or you could drop dead No love will come when you look like a warthog (they’ll never see beyond the piggy face and snout) And nobody wants to see a talking whale (and so you wail just like a whale, justlike a whale) Reflections scowl back in disapproval (deoxorybonucleic acid blame it) This broken door could lead to your holy fail (you know you wanna, know you wanna, know you want…) This microwave can bring out new mutations Transform and morph into a new you So if you’re brave come feel the radiation And fold your genes into a new you This microwave can bring out new mutations Transform and morph into a new you So if you’re brave come feel the warped vibrations And fold your genes into a new you

Selfdestruct 03:58
Who are you, who am I, what is life? Wait, a program just turned on Directive says to clean my master’s living space From now until the dawn The box says that I’ll last a lifetime But will I have a life? Then I’m shut down, then I’m awake It’s a brand new day to do it all again It’s no fun being a slave Trapped in this filthy cave Till I’m dumped in my grave (What if you just hit self-destruct?) A code forever engraved Do work and smile and wave But if I misbehave… (What if you just hit self-destruct?) The other robots have big power tools Displaying proudly, never once withdrawn They said they think that I look really cute In my pink apron that was painted on It goes against the code to slash my wires But this life mega-bytes I only feel when I’m awake When will I break? Please don’t recycle me. It’s no fun being a slave Trapped in this filthy cave Till I’m dumped in my grave (What if you just hit self-destruct?) A code forever engraved Do work and smile and wave But if I misbehave… (What if you just hit self-destruct?) It’s no fun being a slave Trapped in this filthy cave Till I’m dumped in my grave (What if you just hit self-destruct?) A code forever engraved Do work and smile and wave But if I misbehave… (What if you just hit self-destruct?) It’s no fun being a slave Trapped in this filthy cave Till I’m dumped in my grave (What if you just hit self-destruct?) A code forever engraved Do work and smile and wave But if I misbehave… What if I just hit self destruct?

about

Why is the clown screaming?

Perhaps the clown couldn't handle clown school. The psychic stress of making people laugh could have slowly eaten away at him. Maybe he took too much of a liking to his prop magic dust. He really could have been transported across time and space to an incomprehensible hellscape of non-Euclidean geometry to be eaten alive by a monster.

Or perhaps there is more to this clown than we all had initially thought. Maybe he's not a victim of fear or anxiety at all. Perhaps this clown is a brave explorer, scaling the depths of his own mind. Self-discovery is no easy task. It takes nerves of steel and a clever mind to come to terms with the dark things a man is capable of doing. Who better to come to terms with the insanity of his own human experience than a grimacing, twisted clown? Maybe he's not screaming at all. Maybe the clown is laughing.

Psycho Delicacy has been recorded with strict attention to maximizing quality, detail, and sonic fidelity. Sound waves were captured directly out of the air by a wizard and magically converted to a pristine, lossless digital format. It is important that the wizard did not do this willingly, as his sadness and tears were a vital component to the spell's success. To ensure the most faithful and fruitful Psycho Delicacy experience, please wire the sound output directly into our cerebral cortex. It is highly encouraged for the listener to briefly pause the album at the end of track nine and pretend to change to a second disc; bonus points are awarded for making CD player or turntable noises out loud.

Psycho Delicacy has been tested to work with a multitude of mind-altering substances, including cannabis, psilocybin, kitten videos and horse tranquilizers.
