Track Name: Basilica
Dark night comedown
Sleep it off forever
I was dumbstruck by their red light
That was my meeting with religion
How tall, how bright
I`ve got my crucifix and suicide
The great rush of poison
It corresponds with my nothing

Seasick
In my day when you calm me down
Seasick
In the halls of this basilica

I was bursting like an eye
On the impact of whatever
Dark night, red moon
I`ve come to let them go
Gods great bright lights
Been drowning since forever
I was dumbstruck by their night
Yeah, they`re coming down from nowhere

Seasick
In my day and then you see it
Seasick
In the halls of this basilica

In a big room filled with everyone
I was bored and hardly breathing
There was never much to say
So I just piss them off whenever

Seasick
In my day when I feel it
Seasick
In the halls of this basilica
In the halls of this basilica
Track Name: The Politics Of Our Time
Knocking over skinheads like bowling pins
Track Name: Maurice Papon
The girls would shiver and the boys would cry
Huddled up and dreaming of the day they`ll die
But they got what they came for
Yeah they`ve found it
In this televised truth they`ve found so much within

Serving other deities while searching for light
Yeah, they`re serving forever
And they`re dumb enough to fight
Yesterday was wasted by dreaming of today
So I`ll be pissing in these streets while I silently pray

I said hey, wont`you feed my name
Never thought six strings could sound so tame
I said hey, won`t you feed my soul
There`ll be a whole lotta loneliness before I`m gone

Hear them in the streets, yeah they run around
Felt like a tramp when I lay on their holy grounds
Yeah, I spat and shouted though I couldn`t care much about it
Cos I quit politics

Never gave a damn about the memory man
Until I was the man with no memory man
Yeah, I know one thing about my paintbrush
My paintbrush is better than this
Track Name: Space Ribs
A sudden flash of green
Then the moon fell into the ocean
It was too much to handle
It`s gonna take some time to care
What a way to start the day

It must be pretty dissapointing
To see us all grow into nothing
Little wingless crawler
All my tricks laid bare

My clothes were wet
My head dried up
So I went outside to get it straight

The rain came in and the power went out
But I was happy just hanging around
In the stillness of my day I fell away
I fell out of time

They might be there and i might see them
But they don`t help me at all
Some kids spend a whole lotta time just to see if it`s all still there when they wake up
Track Name: Coming Forth By Day
I was drifting through the night
Into morning light
The neighbors dogs were barking
Looking up at the sad old rising sun
Half drunk
Any old day I`ll be feeling alright
And hazy
Yeah, a week away will do wonders
If you try

Everythings coming up roses
Though I feel my footsteps dying

I was stumbling throught the streets
And I know I had a high vision
Yeah, It`ll take some time to see yourself through

I`m waiting for the big day to come around
The one I`ll see tomorrow
I`m waiting for the big day to come around
The one I`ll see

There`s bound to be some loneliness
Before I go

It`s been a long long comedown from the clouds of gold
Was a slow surrender
When I asked if there was anybody left
No on answered

There`s bound to be some loneliness
Before I go
But now I`ve come to take my place
the one I`ve been waiting for
Track Name: We`ll Have A Year
It`s nice to great the day with a big ole smile
It`s nice to see the day
Daydrinkin` till they`re dreams get off the ground

In my sleep I feel it
In my dreams I feel it

Hey where were you when the drugs wore off
My beautiful one, but you look pretty pale in daylight
I was seasick, throwing up
Always stuck on land when the boat drove off
I musta changed in so many different ways
Took whatever change I had, put it in a bag
Then I gave it away
Scraped the fingerprints of my thumbs
Must`ve been dreamin

In my sleep I feel it
In my dreams I see it

Yeah, I slept through the night only to wake up to the eternal darkness
Yeah, the future`s looking pretty bleak to me
I`d like to be better by the time morning comes around
Yeah, I`d like to be better by the time morning comes

I was born pretty young, now I feel like the dying
Can`t walk past a graveyard without feeling at home
Restless and dumb, yeah I give it away
In my early days I was mystified by empty space

In my sleep I feel it
In my dreams I see it

There`s gonna come a time when the kids will be way different
They`ll be dumber than you, even dumber than I
I say goodbye to the morning light
It was nice to hang around

There`s gonna come a time when the kids will be way different
They`ll be dumber than you, even dumber than I
I say goodbye to the morning light
It was nice to visit

In my sleep I feel it
In my dreams I see it

We`ll have a year or atleast a couple a days
And I will try to do good
