Track Name: A Skullful Of Happy
Yes, we're marching into town
And our uniforms are shiny
We're gonna cave in
Every head that isn't smiling

Get a skullful of happy
A skullful of happy
Happy happy happy
Happy happy happy
Track Name: The Cartoonist's Song
The years that suffocate the
Attempts to illustrate
The pictures that resonate my bones

The tiny marks are scattered
Laboriously gathered
Into an integrated whole

It doesn’t mean a thing at all
A pellet tossed into the hole

And lo, on and on it goes
And lo, on and on it goes

Internal excavations
And spectral masturbations
Forbidden notions gathered home

These luminescent vapors
Converted into paper
A mound of printed matter, all

It doesn’t mean a thing at all
A pellet tossed into the hole

And lo, on and on it goes
And lo, on and on it goes
Track Name: The Grey Cold Whispering
In the grey cold whispering
Sings the age-old history
Shining bright and shimmering
Comforting the whimpering

Naked, cold and shivering
Vulnerable and snivelling
Infant hands still fumbling
Stands the mindless child-king

Still, he shouts his first command
Come to claim this common land
“This is now the Promised Land.
Reconstitute these barren clans”

We shall flourish and survive
Come, replenish our supplies
With our growing energies
We shall crush the enemy


In the grey cold whispering
And our aimless loitering
Empty smiles withering
A tiny mind starts flickering

Dusty lips are quivering
And sightless eyes start listening
A voiceless mouth is mumbling
The Giant Eye starts glowering

Amidst the endless bickering
Offended by the simpering
A knuckled fist starts tightening
And fragile skulls start splintering

We will rewrite history
Anesthetize the memory
Notify all entities
And nullify the entropy


And through the ceaseless struggling
And ouroboric plundering
The holocaust starts quickening
And yet the horde is lingering

It’s a complete catastrophe
Just ask the man-in-the-street
Maintain our feigned neutrality
And undisturbed tranquility

We hear the distant thundering
The echoes of the clamoring
And bloody hands are slaughtering
Still not disturbs our slumbering

We will keep our liberties
Safe between parenthesis
Close the blinds and back to sleep
Eulogize our deities
Track Name: Another Holiday
Now comes the dreaded season
They home in like a beacon
They loiter with no reason
And there's no sign they'll go away

They empty out my pantries
They shriek their loudest shanties
They suckle like sea lampreys
And they will never go away

And it appears they're here to stay
They linger on day after day
It's just another holiday

The cherished heirloom pieces
Are being smeared with feces
The dead-eyed stony faces
Betray no plans to go away

And all the family pictures
They're smashing with their hammers
The antiquated fixtures
Are swiftly being hauled away

And it appears they're here to stay
Crushing all signs to keep away
It's just another holiday

The smell of boiling urine
Engulfs the habitation
The sordid dissipations
Continue through the break of day

They cry "La dolce vita!"
And set the pets on fire
They form a tuneless choir
And chant they'll never go away

Yes, be resigned they're here to stay
They linger on day after day
It's just another holiday
Track Name: I Teach Me A Brain
I teach me a brain
It sits in front the telly
I teach me a brain
And it keeps me comperny

I teach me a brain
I teach me a brain
I teach me a brain
I teach me a brain

I teach me a brain
And it learns so many things
I teach me a brain
And it makes me so happy

I teach me a brain
I teach me a brain
I teach me a brain
I teach me a brain
