Lyrics to the various singles - some of these are kinda vague, due to Justin's poor pronunciation habits.

Caterpillarcaterpillar single

are we here? are you scared? can you fake a smile?
cross the way (wind?), interval (?) it really takes you a while
could you understand, could you resist it a while
never forget it
i am here, i am numb, am not a human being
i have limbs (whims?) i have loves, and a heart (lot?) of sores (swords?)
could you understand, digest it a while?
know i can, know i can
i have it down, but i can't see myself
can you go alone? can you take that chance?
i (love to?) see myself, but i really can do, i do

Love and Fear

can you count the times on your fingers that you've wanted to die?
i can't count the times on my fingers that i wanted to die.
because of love, because of love, it doesn't matter, because of love,
the lack of, where is love, lack of love, lack of love.
love and fear, that's all it is. love and fear (takes you tear?).
all i (unclear), love and fear, takes you here.
i can't count the times on my fingers, on my fingers,
that i want to die, because of love
that love, that la la la la
love and fear, that's all it is,
love and fear takes a tear
all i need, all i need, love and fear, love and fear
hollow me it's time to why you me (all this stuff is mumbled)
she doesn't think that i, the call i need, i need i need in me (all this is screamed)
love and fear, that's all it is, love and fear, all around
love and fear, love is she, she, love and fear
don't be afraid to be afraid. don't be afraid -fraid -fraid -fraid.

Kandy Korn Ritualskandy korn rituals

look now this is the fire next time.
we'll perform kandy korn rituals.
the dance we make the prom you hate.
we'll perform kandy korn rituals.
green turns to black, green turns to black, green turns to black. so we will burn it, burn it down.
that fist you gave has proved our rage.
we'll per-form kandy korn rituals.
this isn't georgia, this is tumwater. this isn't georgia, this is tumwater. this isn't georgia, this is tumwater.
we'll burn it, burn it down. burn. down. burn. down. down.

Against

against my mind. against my soul. against my eye. at least i'll try.
against all time. against all space. against all matter. what's the matter?
against the age. against the rage. against your age. what's the rage?

Hating in D

it's only a moment, only a moment, only a moment, only a moment.
it's just a moment, just a moment, just a moment, just a moment.
i hate this moment. i hate this moment.
(catch up) fall back behind, behind. but it's too late, this time is mine. (plus a lot of screaming)

You Bite My Tongueyou bite my tongue

cut off my head on purpose, to defy and deny this instance.
we have too many things to say to each other,
so why not speak at all?
you bite my tongue.
what was the secret anyway, and why would i give it away?
why not bite out my heart too?
would i give it to you?
you bite my tongue.

Kid Is Gone (Chant Of Vengeance)

the little lamb he takes a walk, taking it breath by breath with a chant of vengeance
kid is gone, sacrifice.
and what pain did he feel with every stride, he crawled inside,
kid is gone.

Understand and Forget

i understand you, i understand you and i can't believe the things that you do.
and if i forget that i have faith
put a flower on my grave, on my grave.
i understand you, i understand you and i can't always see the space that you take.
we sit in a room, a friendless room,
and we still can't believe there's no place like home.

MKUltramkultra single

and were away in our own country
exiled in our cold feeble minds with time
to take what you have and make a cure for this disease
that's stealing what you never loved
before this one summertime
was when you were around
and the other time was when the
CIA had a plot to see us dead
in at least what we see as the truth
which was an acid dream to most
was defined by division of the short-sighted enemies.
without control, without a clue, without revolt, you're not a relative.
what i know can't hurt me. what i know can't hurt me.
what i know can't hurt me. what i know can't hurt me.

Totality

we want something besides i, me, him, her, they...
to decide or decline for new ideas or no ideas.
i'm only preparing for total eclipse,
and i'm not sorry for that anymore, anymore, anymore.

Negatednegated single

it's not far away. can you wait? to destroy what you've made. to ignore it all away.
here's the exit, please disregard. where's your duty? does it help to lie?
never heard of courage. what's the use? what's the point in trying after years of abuse?
the weight of the world is an empty threat. better figure out something before we all forget.
it's not far away. can you wait? to destroy what you've made. to ignore it all away.
here's the exit, please disregard. where's your duty? does it help to lie?
achieve maximum separation. apathy won't kill you; it's right on time.
the party's never over cause it never starts.
we function as a bunch of liars, and even though it's not our fate, we're just tired.

Said Serial

they can never know you they can never know you they can never know you as well as you think.
so look out, look out, look out, look out.
they'll follow you, follow you, follow you, follow you home.
they can never tell you they can never tell you they can never tell you what the hell they think.
so look out, look out, look out, look out.
they'll follow you, follow you, follow you, follow you home.
and they'll swallow you, swallow you, swallow you, swallow you whole.

Corpse Posecorpse pose artwork

sleeping is believing, breathing is deceiving.
watch your heart, let it bleed, don't have faith in anything
corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose
the drawback to living is finding yourself
watch your heart let it bleed, don't have faith in anything
corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose
don't believe it if you see it, got to see it, to believe it
corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose corpse pose
don't belive it if you see it, don't belive it if you see it,
got to see it to belive it.

Everything Is Weird

(unclear) (story lies?) to you
you have nothing to say so just say it, i have nothing to say i just said it
(like a morse code signal, the heart will stop?)

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Is A Train

(portions of the sampled dialogue)
hi this message is for john. john, my name is (obscured by noise). i'm putting together something called heartraves, which is gonna be basically, uh, very upbeat music, uh 140 beats per minute type thing, to get people to really move their body. it's for people 20ish, 30ish, 40ish. uh, and then, it's a dance environment, where they come in, it's alcohol-free, smoke-free. and uh and then the music, it's for getting people to open up to their own being, basically, and their own uh uniqueness and, and the fact that we're all connected collectively. and then it moves into a more of a tribal sound, a world sound, where the encouragement of their indigenous self is brought forth, and then it moves into soul sounds, where people go into kind of a tribal sound which will mean dancing and chanting, so that all three mediums are being used with lots of instrumentation, didgeridoos, (eagle?) whistle, south american flute, that kind of thing, so it really has a tribal feel. and then from there it goes into a uh meditation, and um, where we bring in spirit with sacred incantations and um, and uh move people into much higher realms in terms of energy and consciousness and spirit. so anyway my name is (obscured by noise) i'd like to chat with you about it, i saw your article in the stranger, you can reach me at (obscured by noise), thanks very much, bye bye.
...and we can see that mr. (porneer?), from the, the publisher in kent, is real pleased with this work, and he's uh, course hank's been working a lot of overtime, he doesn't get paid overtime, he just gets paid for the straight eight hours, but of course being a reporteer you have to go where the news is and when it is, he's always chasing fires and all sorts of things. i'm right at the end so i'll say, cheerio, and we'll send you another tape.
