lyrics

Hook: We’re playing ghosts in the graveyard / float / frozen in eight bars / choke / now you’re hoping to make ours / cry for you / If i were you / I wouldn’t hope / We’re playing ghosts in the graveyard / hide / frozen in eight bars / die / now you’re hoping to make ours / hope for you / If I were you / I wouldn’t try.

Mictlan: I splinter these wood teeth on a silver tongue / Sing hymns to sinners and sit in when the dinner’s done / Dirt on the collar / butcher / blood on the cuffs / My good foot’s in a grave / the other one’s a leg-up / No lady o’ luck / I ain’t stuck in her “lap of luxury” / No fast tracks or slow ones either / detached from suffering / The mask is under me like the past is under me / My own conscience will the first and last thing to fuck with me / The Boy met the Man and the ways of the World ain’t it a peach? / Nah, dig deep, it’s a pearl / Sold on solitude like my soul is solid gold / We told them soldiers to hold / but never showed ‘em a common goal / Don’t follow robots in a suit and tie / and don’t trust robots on a soapbox with a “SHOOT ME” sign / I see they drew the line / bang bang / I walk it like Cash and all you do is divide.

Sims: So I see you’ve got your war paint / all suited up / shoot ‘em up / You drill it until the core breaks / chew ‘em up, use it up, then you move the rub / So leave ‘em like the people in your life / the Desert Eagle is your life / Your pride drives drove you to nowhere / now you’re stuck, feathers ruffled in the cold air / Another scuffle / bad company / can’t cut it clean
so use the hollow tips / pass the poison and swallow it with glass / followed with a laugh for all the holograms that passed as real / Now all that solid land has got a plastic feel / so take another drag of the smoking gun and bolt / Your story’s fabricated though you spoke it under oath / gameshow host.

Hook

Cecil: Twenty-five / medium well-rounded with a working man’s halo / I served five years in the circus / and I’m about to land pay-roll / But some swear I’m hell-bound / along with the serpent and the rainbow / but I ain’t working for the devil / or searching for no angel / I’m working all the angles in this book of human languages / I let the world I know graze the lips of that palm reader / She’s calling me the crying uncle / saying I’m so blind that I’d cuddle / with a serial time-killer who leaves her victims with a sign of struggle / I might get shuffled in to that haunted house of cards / but I’ll just sit there / playing with the queen of hearts / It’s no different than being in a crowded bar / saying “you play the wounded fish, and I’ll be the shark” alligator / half man / getting back to nature with an eight-track Tascam / Task at hand / I mean flask-in-hand / leaving one set of tracks in the sand / and no tracks in my arms.
