Track Name: Downhill
here are the lyrics!

there was light, there was sound
it was brighter and louder than now
all of brooklyn was in flames
but you won't hear me complain
most of manhattan was underwater
and to be honest I kinda liked it better
as an aquarium lined with hedge funds and coffee chains

say it again, say it again
say it again to yourself
that it's all downhill, it's all downhill
say it again, say it again
say it again to yourself
that it's all downhill, it's all downhill from here

oh, the hotter, the wetter, the better
cut the sleeves off of your old sweaters
yeah you won't hear me complain
i've got ocean in my veins
some official driving a lexus
through a ghetto the size of texas
he said, "kid, you look bright, but not that tough - so suit up"

say it again, say it again
say it again to yourself
that it's all downhill, it's all downhill
say it again, say it again
look at yourself in the mirror
'cause it's all downhill, it's all downhill from here

the skies will open up, it'll rain agent orange from god
and let me begin by telling you all of the good news
(let me stop)

c'mon kids, gather round
look at yourselves in the mirror and repeat after me

say it again, say it again
say it again to yourself
that it's all downhill, it's all downhill
say it again, say it again
look at yourself in the mirror
'cause it's all downhill, it's all downhill
it's all downhill, it's all downhill
it's all down
Track Name: Future Shock
it's the dawn of an era of no decisions
and disposable goods that are made with precision
if you're gonna make a run for it, do it quietly
you'd make a terrible narc, and i mean that nicely
there's no color that can mask the shade of shit you're in

i'm afraid of the future shock

was it the sound of an ancient machine from under
or the grinding of teeth you mistook for thunder?
chemicals swimming like a fish inside her
can i get you a glass of what passes for water?
there's no color that can mask the shade of shit you're in

i'm afraid of the future shock
Track Name: Same Shit
a lotta talk, and nothing there to back it
new boss is sucking on the same tit
take my opinion for what it's worth
but honestly, i fail to see the difference

you have a better reputation
than do the shit-heads from the prior generation
and listen, i'm no expert, but i do have eyes
and honestly, i fail to see the difference
i fail to see the difference

it's the same shit in a different nightmare
it's the same shit, everybody sign here
it's the same shit in a different century
so excuse me if i fail to see the difference

hey, it's a new kind of extortion
but this time they swear they're gonna do it on their own terms
in a never-ending line of all american white male handshakes
i think i fail to see the difference

i waited in line for my entire life
and when i finally got to the counter
the man looked at me and asked if i believed in reincarnation
and if so, better luck in the next life
i fail to see the difference

it's the same shit in a different nightmare
it's the same shit, everybody sign here
it's the same shit in a different century
so excuse me if i fail to see the difference
Track Name: No Connection
strange
michael hastings in a car crash
strange
watch it burn and turn to ash
don't you think it's peculiar?
don't you think it's strange?

strange
he'd been harboring a secret
strange
hard to stop his heart from beating
out of his chest
from all the tension

there's no connection, stop paying attention

strange
found deceased without a reason
strange
33 with no conditions to speak of
stop paying attention

there's no connection, stop paying attention

strange
an unmarked car was near the impact
strange
all the windows tinted black
don't you think it's peculiar?
don't you think it's strange?

stop paying attention
Track Name: God Given Right
they've ironed out the creases
of the streets that need policing
they've stomped out the heartbeat of a no-wave world
and that's their god given right

it's their god given right
it's their god given right
it's their god given right
it's their god given right
to drop the bomb

strange and violent visions
in the name of some religion
there's speaking in tongues to their stockbrokers
and it's their god given right

it's their god given right
it's their god given right
it's their god given right
it's their god given right
to drop the bomb

look: there's people on the highway on-ramp
clawing at your door
drive, we can make it to the nearest city
until they end the war
here is another message from your sponsors:
keep the kids indoors
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right to it

stop
everybody keep composure
the drinking water is fine
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right
you've got a god given right to it
Track Name: And Today, Nothing
canned goods were strewn around the grocery store at midnight
it was empty
i was counting out some change
the sun was gone for seven months and 27 days
but i didn't feel anything at all
the constellations shifted their positions in the sky
into letters of a language i could barely recall
spelling "today nothing, and today nothing"
and "tomorrow will be nothing at all"

it's as if the more i see
the further i get
and the more i try
the harder it is to find

so today nothing, yeah today nothing
and tomorrow will be nothing at all
so today nothing, yeah today nothing
and tomorrow will be nothing at all

i stopped and rang the buzzer up to your apartment
as a formality, because no one was there
this city's been a wasteland, there's nobody around
and i don't feel anything at all

it's as if the more i see
the further i get
and the more i try
the harder it is to find

so today nothing, yeah today nothing
and tomorrow will be nothing at all
so today nothing, yeah today nothing
and tomorrow will be nothing at all

do you feel anything at all?
