I was thinking, baby baby, about the ‘ol switcheroo from a dramatic actor to a comedic troupe Pick a card, ready run, pick an action quick How do you reign when everything’s broke? Oops! the hungry broke the dinner bell The devil’s armies climbing up the wishing well Mother, may i have a menu that’s more for me? There’s no glory for a m.i.a. v.i.p. Cause there comes a time in everyones life when their going to choose to live or die It can’t be fun to walk on dead bodies when you know that half of them are alive The ‘ol switcheroo! No one will expect it A quick attack to send them running off into the night Stab! in the back with a feather Forsake humanity with a little touch of levity Take a moment to reflect on making out with the sun How it can breathe life into about anyone Kiss off goodbye devil, goodbye academy Hello towers built to honor everything to be Cause there comes a time in everyone’s life when their going to choose to live or die It can’t be fun to walk on dead bodies when you know that half of them are alive The ‘ol switcheroo! No one will expect it A quick attack to send them running off into the night Stab! In the back with a feather Forsake humanity with a little touch of levity Aww yeah! I’m going to make it Mother Teresa’s going to stand up and applaud for me The ‘ol switcheroo, the ‘ol switcheroo

Game Show 03:23
Born to pick and choose Oops, I am mistaken all my choices have been chosen Born to live and learn Born to do and die if I did not do it right Duty lies in doing the best you can It’s not what you know, but who would you blow and if you want it all you better spit out what you’re told Ask me to pick a side I will slice your babies right between the eyes I made up my own game The instant winner now follow all my fame We don’t need help to make this more funny Duty lies in doing the best you can Mama threw me into a game show where all the answers are removed from their soul It’s not what you know, but who would you blow If you want it all you better spit out what you’re told Canned laughter is a warm family Can laughter set us free? It’s reality to be loved and hated It’s reality to be eliminated You’re the star

Go ahead and look up in the sky, now you’re floating Do you want another piece of pie? How exciting! What a day, I said. How we enjoyed ourselves. Do you wanna run with me through the garden? Oh you have a slip and slide? Well, I beg your pardon Leaving nothing to chance, how we enjoyed ourselves We walked hand in hand across the land, always listening Fireworks played melodies, when we kissed heard symphonies Always time to dance, how we enjoyed ourselves Eating pie in summer time will go down in history Kiss me if you miss me and the trumpets will sound revelry What a day, I said, how we enjoyed ourselves Keep the days coming, keep them coming my way

This old bag of bones should be left alone Buried in the corner, away from a window If it can’t breathe, maybe it will stay down I hope my eyes don’t tell so you won’t tell of a strange sad disposition A dramatization of a child who doesn’t sleep at night Well a boogie man finally won the fight I don’t want to sleep tonight Must be fully operational Oh at best I will dream of a zombie team With the same aspirations To create conquer and delight There’s so much pressure on us So much for us to know and I will be damned if I rest without peace tonight I don’t want to sleep tonight Must be fully operational I have to get this so right Must be instantly sensational

Statues will be broken with great authority Understating the lack of care for antiquity On a bus people came with brand new tongues and polished hand grenades Even now I look for weapons to borrow Timeless antics can’t wait for tomorrow A bowie knife, paper and pens, to record actions from all there who agree They know what’s wrong and just might make it right A concentration of sun exploding out there eyes Burning hope will be motto and the name of first battle sight I didn’t come here to crash the party I came here to crash myself I didn’t believe and now my hearts on my sleeve Everything will be well I never said that I had the best plan I’ll follow you now I am just a hopeful man I agree it’s time for a change, a new hope, and a new face to maim Where is the line so I can polish my new hand grenade?

Perfidy is four letter word wrapped in love and a tattered white flag soaring like a dove C’mon, didn’t you know wars are fought to be won? Now say hello to my rooftop friend I t’s so fun whispering bullets through the breeze The propaganda of the deed will have everyone talking And starting up a riot It’s exactly what you want History has proven that you have a great thirst for the hunting season We as witches cackle, gossip and plan We wouldn’t have been friends on any other day Now I have a cause and a polished hand grenade Requesting permission to speak freely Maybe tomorrow you would have done this to me It’s so fun whispering bullets through the breeze The propaganda of the deed will have everyone talking And starting up a riot It’s exactly what you want History has proven that you have a great thirst for the hunting season We as witches cackle, gossip and plan Oh! Here’s a copy of the art of war Read up and give ‘em all what for A fresh steaming smoking yellow dove So kids, seclude, body guard, and bulletproof your dreams They’ll lie and fight, attack you just as you think Be sane, be calm, evolve, take ‘em to the streets I’ve seen their armies and we’ve already won

It’s obsession and repression that allows me to bring attention to my mind It’s a cracked piece of glass Beautiful and colorful to the touch wonderful, a firecracker in a car crash If I lose control, I lose the team If I lose my soul, I am a machine Wake up it is morning, your age it is growing, Oh no no no It’s an age old practice I will use to our advantage Mind control mixed with spit When we get up to the wall we need your help to make it fall Here’s a grab bag full of tricks Wait, are you determined, strong, bold and wise? Does your body hold power or just dirty lies? There’s a war to be won so let’s have some fun, brick by brick by brick Let’s tear the wall down to the ground Where do you see yourself in the next five years? I’m still attacking this wall if its not torn down Do you want my help? Do you want my heart (oh yeah!) My brothers and my sisters Let’s tear the wall down to the ground If I was more articulate I would spit in your face A bonafide reject psycho punch to put you in your place Demons, they’re getting bolder Bringing down my back and breaking my shoulders, no! Wake up it is morning, your age it is growing There’s a war to be won so let’s have some fun Down by the wall, let’s watch it fall Brick by brick by brick Let’s tear the wall down to the ground Where do you see yourself in the next five years? I’m still attacking this wall if its not torn down Do you want my help? Do you want my heart (oh yeah!) My brothers and my sisters Let’s tear the wall down to the ground

1,000 miles per hour seems innocent indeed But what is speed, when you don’t know where you’re going? A knife to the throat seems dangerous indeed But what’s to bleed, when you don’t know what’s flowing? Moving away from this land, this abulia I’m going to the best place for me A car full of gas and a map you cannot see It was costly my mind spent all my money I’d blame for you for my troubles but i know its all on me Responsibility is bloody and dragging behind me Moving away from this land, this abulia I’m going to the best place for me If you feel the same, follow me Things are what they seem This ain’t the life for me and you know it We’re going to do the same things we did yesterday trying to pass the time waiting for tomorrow Please tell me at night you dream of the wildest things Cause I bite at windows Teeth versus glass Pray for salvation from my lazy ass I toss and turn, sleepwalk and start fires Create new words to help scream out desires So please, if you feel the same, follow me Moving away from this land, this abulia I’m going to the best place for me Sometimes life has a way of making you feel crazy Baby it’s not the road laid out for me
