1.The One Man Band Broke Up (修改)

Produced By:DJ Scientist

The one man band broke up
The one man band broke up
Due to creative differences
The one man band broke up
And everybody mourned the passing by passing along

Oh fuck a simple requiem
For the moments in the dusty record bins once lived in by kings
Now graveyards for great stars that will never reign again
These deserts full of fractured limbs and scattered instruments that can still sing like kids
Are rotting into nothingness and the abyss in dim
I remember when you kept time with the bass drum pedal
While your left foot played organ melodies...
A harmonica...
A banjo...
When you put an old hat out for the crowd passersby wearing suits and ties tried to hide
But they couldn't possibly deny your banshee cries
Five decades in a wishing well
Only waiting for someone to toss a pail
Or a life vest
Or some type of help
But your body failed
And your mind failed
And your career fell into oblivion with the rest of your peers
Loving what you did only got you so far through these years
The moral of the story is
No one really gives a shit
But don't cry for the swatted flies
They loved what they did
The moral of the story is
No one really gives a shit
But don't cry for the swatted flies
They loved what they did


2.Half Mast (修改)

Produced By:DJ Scientist

4 years old
I was in a playground digging for bones
Underneath the wood chips
Under the stones
Searching for the dead and gone
Dinosaurs with their dead end songs
And then

When I was 7
I planted 20 peach pits in the backyard
One of them grew up to be a tree with 50 arms
It bore the sweetest fruit I've ever tasted
And the roots tore through the dirt
Tore through the pavement

All these animals
With their paws in traps
All the animals
In this bar make me laugh
It's the way that our faces sink at half mast
It's the way that our bodies stink (make noise)

I already know them by heart
I've memorized their reflections
And know the art
I've felt the rush of a big bet
And got the scars
Covering each bit of this chest
We'll play our parts
But every performance will end

So if this is really the start of the finish
I guess I gotta go ahead and settle for chipping away at the infinite...
Only felt alive for a minute's time...
All I ever wanted was to be significant - not losing in my prime
Sacrificing my body pocket and mind
For a taste of it
Spitting in the face of it
They love it when a man plummets
I'd pray but I can't stomach that rubbish

Where do they really want to go when they die?
In the clouds with the most high?
Underground or the sky with a clown-like 'BIG GUY'?
In a wooden box
With a suit and tie
So the boll weevils can hide
With some maggots in between toenails
While arachnids swim inside bone marrow?
Or would they prefer to go sterile?

God Dammit

I'm locked inside this unforgiving planet
Where people chant of freedom and revolution
But have never had it
So I've been on a quest to find a way out of inevitable gravity and death
And I'm at a turning point
Wondering if I should quit now
But it's all in jest

I feel I'm dick deep
And the writer's block raping my brain
Is editing out all the ways I want to say 'fuck you' in good taste

This is an album
About low living
Sucking up dust and discovering quickly
That the truth is unforgiving

All these animals
With their paws in traps
All the animals
In this bar make me laugh
It's the way that our faces sink at half mast
It's the way that our bodies stink

9 years old
Saw a man get shot in the road:
Robbed a bank
Never made it home
That's my fucking hero though
A gambler with no soul
Took a risk
Buried in a hole

When I was 12
I dreamt Abuelo never went to hell
I dreamt he never shot and killed himself
In that Puerto Rican motel
Where the cane rum sunk into the shelves
I painted him in heaven

I made believe my father kept clean
That addiction wasn't built inside of me
Or David
But the tree is still growing
And it seems
That the fruit it bore 10 years before just wasn't so sweet

I must say
I must say
I never thought you would fade

I must say
I must say
I never thought you would

I must say
I must say
I never thought you would fade

I must say
I must say
I must say
I must say...

All these animals
With their paws in traps
All the animals
In this bar make me laugh
It's the way we're all sinking at half mast
It's Half Mast

3.No New York (修改)

feat. Astronautalis
Produced By:DJ Scientist

[Intro x2:Ceschi (Astronautalis)]
Poor big baby
You poor sad fucking baby
Poor poor poor poor
(cry me a river)

Clichés are changing
Now there's nothing kitsch about you
You're just a leather face with a hard cock
Blowing lines in a punk club bathroom
Dreaming of 1966 bitches
The way they flocked to your dick and riches
Like a pack of dogs in a fried chicken kitchen
Now they're moms and leaders
Gone with the wind
And you're just gonorrhea
A fraud and a peon
That never went beyond
Your own ego
When the g's turn to c-notes
You can just sit and wait for the lesser of 6 million evils

[Hook x2: Ceschi]
This is not New York
This is not a sold out crowd
I am not a water boy
I am not your conscience

Good Grizzly God
Tell me this is not what I'll become
Because i can barely stand the backstage stench of cum
That's dried on tagged couches
And if I see another cock and balls drawn on this green room wall then i might quit
We slept in cold sweat across the Midwest
Playing metal shows for drunken whores in clown suits who couldn't care less
Lost girlfriends and jobs
All for the love of a song
All for the 15 minute moment of glory that's now gone
Paid with fried cheese and bad beer, and I don't drink beer
We grew beards in those European vans
Where fruit flies fluttered on farm fresh pears
And dead deer diaries began (peace to 2mex)
So wrap yourself in the skin of frozen bison
To protect that pretty face from the ice wind
We try to win but we're just humans with vices and sins
And time is spread thin
Like birthday cake icing
I tried to tell you backstage
But the women got in the way
And the drugs had already hit your brain
I wanted to tell you backstage
[cough cough]
I tried to tell you backstage
But the women got in the way
And the drugs had already hit your brain
When they reminisce over you
And speak as if your life is through
It just might be true
(Pete Rock and CL Smooth)


[Outro Astronautalis:]
I tried to tell you in the van but I couldn't focus on anything cause you were shaking hands
Tried to tell backstage
Tried to tell you in the van
I tried to tell you in the hotel room but it's tough to talk when everybody's around
Couldn't remember the words to those songs and everything that I was thinking would just come out wrong

4.Lament for Captain Julius (修改)

It's only a matter of time
'Til we grow up to be just like you
Worn out and dry
God's gifts don't give for too long do they?

Captain oh captain
Are you swallowing salt?
Captain oh captain
Are you swimming laps in blood?

These stories are so damned long

And most words are filler
As kids we want to change worlds with our songs
But most of us are quitters

Captain oh captain
Please prove me wrong
Captain oh captain
Hope I'm wrong

5.Fallen Famous (修改)

Produced By:2econd Class Citizen & DJ Scientist

[Intro x4:Sample]
When something beautiful dies
People turn sideways their eyes

One round of applause for the dollar bill doldrums
Two for the bankrupt distributors
Three for the folding indies
Four for the fallen famous
Five for the lack of support
Six for the millions of kids who missed the mid nineties
Seven for the rappers telling me “rap is dead”
Selling out
In their petticoats
With their petty drama
Bourgeois fear
From the rebels who once screamed in our ears
About money and guns
About politics
Wonder where they'll go?
Will they ever try to dig themselves right out of the comfort of their own homes?
When a life implodes fragments flow deep into the black
Into the forgotten
Swallowed whole
In a landslide of kudos that turned to - who knows?
What a shame
To be taken
Right into the grave
By the devil and his henchmen
The same ones that took his pension
And left him in a grave defenseless
Not to mention
No attention to the messes
Just a box-set
Sitting next to a Smith and Wesson
Fingerprints still lingering on trigger metal
Heavy metal on a record spinning
'It's the end of your era I tell you!'
His publicist screams
On a warped tape answering machine
From the eighty's
Silver lining never came
The defining moments fade
With radio play
Put away
Any stray
Bullet in your brain
Get it ready for that long play

[Bridge: Sample]
When something beautiful dies
People turn sideways their eyes
When something beautiful dies
People turn sideways their eyes
When something beautiful dies
People turn sideways their eyes
When something beautiful dies
A cry is raised to the skies

Every day something beautiful dies
And nobody cries for the swatted flies
Because they lingered around insignificant
Living just distant of people's eyes
Disgusting Vultures
Circling around the bodies of my fallen heroes
Making jigsaw puzzles out of bones
While lilacs limp from the stench as flesh erodes
No need to worry about packing bags Julius
Maggots don't care if you're dressed
Your mother's gone
And the suit don't fit
A 9 millimeter's gonna be your last kiss
And no one's gonna be there when you take a final breath
And even though you want to be remembered as an übermensch
It's less
It's less than ashes in the sea
It's less than a fresh coat of makeup on your gray face at a wake with a catholic priest
It's less than heaven
Less than irrelevant
Less than the most negative segment
That you could even conjure up in your vast imagination
It's tasteless
It's dirt
It's rotting organs
It's worms
And the perfect sounds are drowned out by the ground now
By the cries of the few and far between
By the record labels that are capitalizing on dreams
And they'll repackage you as deluxe
And they'll romanticize your death grunts
But the dust on the dollar bin gatefold sleeve just
Screams that nobody gave a fuck

[Outro: Sample]
People turn sideways their eyes
When something beautiful dies
People turn sideways their eyes
When something beautiful dies
A cry is raised to the skies

6.Bridge (修改)

feat. Tommy V
Produced By:DJ Scientist

Don't set foot on that bridge
Everyone who did has lost a life or limb

Temptation aches in your loins
And grows on your face
After the constant disappointment builds an edifice around
Boundaries you've developed
Over bottomless time
They are carefully hidden behind
This invincible popular image
That simply defies what you really are
You're no superstar
Julius and the bearded savior
Is a lie

更多更详尽歌词 在 ※ 魔镜歌词网
Don't set foot on that bridge
There are trolls under it
Waiting for revenge

Don't set foot on that bridge
Those wooden planks
Won't hold a head growing so big

Don't set foot on that bridge
There are plenty of other options
Back roads and alternate highways

Don't set foot on that bridge
Everyone who did has lost a life or limb

7.Serious Business (修改)

Produced By:DJ Scientist

I just want to know where the wondrous feelings go
When you're all dried up, vacuum sealed, shrink wrapped and exposed
A piece of flesh in a super market refrigerator
Poked and prodded
Soon to be chewed or garbage
Tasted or tested
Digested or dissected
Into the belly of a beast
Or breast fed by machines
It's all the same thing julius

8.Hangman (修改)

feat. David Ramos, Mic King & Shoshin

[Hook x2]
Hang in there hangman
Swinging from a gallows pole
That dust from your bones
Will help the flowers grow

Try to die with a smile on
Your final fighting defiant song
Long gone
Are the worshiping fans and entourage
Messiahs lost
In a corporate sanctioned holocaust
Falling off
Is more than slipping from buildings or rocks
We'll remember the classic records forever
Those moments before hopelessness choked your focus and left you severed
We can smell the death of winter
It burns out our nostril hairs
And tosses the frail
Fossils from here
Dropping entrails
Over yellow brick roads
That are now covered in piss
Not gold
Riddled with potholes
So rot slow
With the rest of the apostles
God knows
What the world could have been with you
Before the mighty monster chewed your sinews
And spit you into
Something so cynical and simple

There is a terror that plagues the bearers of veins barren of blood
But for the bitter fetor of liquid love
Oh child, undone, your time has come

In absolute awe, we stared as you fastened on to your fears fearlessly
Peering into the mirror, then crafting songs from your experiences there
Such searing sermons on the self, delivered from an impermanent pulpit
Built of heartwreck, regret, sex, bourbon, and bullshit
The crashing down was catastrophic
The sadness sounded from some seven hundred thousand heartbeats halting
Oh, entire cities retired to pity this liars departure
The fires it sparked were but sires to quiet hearths where aspiring authors made i and irony mired martyrs
Sirens sang from the swells, secrets you swore you'd never tell
A closed casket to cloak your gross cadaver, bloated, throat, rope ravaged
Your rigor mortise riddled corpse. this empty shell

[Hook x4]

[Mic King]
They teach us pull ourselves together in a game of hangman
Firing blanks and empty the clip now hang in the balancing act - uality
That the honor we have is not about us but the collars we sla - shhhh
...And there's a hush over the crowd
Hanging heads holding the crowns unload silver cloaking the clouds
While clothes make the mantra affix ya face to waistband
Take chance, risk inconsiderate vowels (vows)
Line your liner notes by the throat, cause this is a noun
Win lose or draw, go through withdrawals, perform to your credit
Be deified by the palindrome at the speed of life by pawning your ethics
Rise or fall in this life sentence by applied grammar
Talk is cheap til they hang on your every word like sky banners

[David Ramos]
Give it up for once last time
Yes, one last hurrah
One final round of applause before our hero dissolves
And when the clock hit ten
There was no opening act
No one to heighten impact
The stage was fully intact
For the one man band to react
To the sold out crowd in his mind
In 1999
No one could have ever thought there would have been a possibility of such a well adjusted wannabe celebrity to ever come to utter culmination like this
So there wasn't any total bliss
An imaginary pussy fest
Cause there's no outlets left for the one man band
As he stands on the stage half naked covered in sweat
So let backup tracks on your Discman blast
As you revisit the past
And reinterpret the laughs

[Hook x8]

9.Bad Jokes (修改)

Produced By:DJ Scientist

He apologized to the folks in the back row who got splattered in blood at the last show
He apologized for the spit and sweat that dripped off of his skin and his chest, but none the less
He should have apologized for things that he never did when he should, and things that he did when he shouldn't
Of all those sins that gathered up to form a fifty foot dragon sleeping in a labyrinth inside of his brain cavity stagnant
GG Allin threatened to blow out his brains on the stage, but when death day came it was quiet and tame
And there's the one about the girl in Berlin who jumped out a window when her people convinced her suicide was performance

Bad jokes about bad people in bad bars make the bad worse and make the good crash cars
So have you heard the one about the one man band?
I heard he sang like an angel before he hanged
So have you heard the one about the one man band, yes the one man band?
Yeah, I heard it...

But it's too soon to laugh about his follies in the past
About the way that he got fat and couldn't keep it in his pants
And I remember lies about five figure record deals
Headlining bills and lines when he tried to convince me everything was real
But it was a crying shame seeing him lye in pain after realizing the way he wasted time and again
They dangled the prize in front of his tired eyes like arcade toy cranes with no claws to play

He used to sing, 'god damn another one of God's bad jokes'
When he stabs and pokes at her last hopes
We were young once, we wrote songs about not giving a fuck, acting like we had some guts
Laughing on a bar stool dumb, drunk, his one hand fiddled with some nuts while the other held the mug
And every crease in his face was a fault line that looked like it had been drawn there at the beginning of time
But he was only 45 when he died with no family left behind, just instruments and a mic
And the story goes that he cried like a baby as he tied the noose waiting for someone to come and save him

10.For My Disappointing Hip Hop Heroes (修改)

Produced By:Ceschi

Most of us tried to jump of rooftops and threatened to slit our wrists at 14
Only some succeeded and missed out on the late nineties' underground rap scene
By 18 it felt beautiful to be man
To stick your dick in pussy holes 'til it got red
The college girls tasted like diner food and cigarette sauce
Now the grown girls taste like a dust and years of regret protein blend
Even whores won't touch you with a stick
'Til you shave your face and lose the weight you gained in LA

'Til you start convincing people that you're not sick
And start to smile
At the babies and the puppies and the passersby
With symmetrical bodies and rhythmic strides
Hidden well beneath the fog of Guilford
You've got nostalgia to kill tonight

It's been so fucking long since you've had a hero that didn't disappoint or die

11.Long Live (The Great Short Lived) (修改)

feat. Sole
Produced By:DJ Scientist

Nobody quite understood
Andy Kaufman's finest jokes
Even years after
All the cancer chewed away
Carmen Miranda's
Heart attack on the Durante show
Wasn't noticed until she
Faded the next day
When all our flesh disintegrates
We'll perform for the worms
Although the crowds will be letdowns
At least we'll still perform

[Verse I: Ceschi]
When you rub your eyes too hard and see spots
Those are only angels
Mixed with souls of the faded famous
Still putting on shows inside of a limbo dearly departed
Taken from a life early on
These trifling swan songs
Don't last long
The remains only stay
In an eardrum coffin
Lost in dense fog
It's funny but it's dead wrong
To pluck the gray hairs
Right out of a corpse's beard
And make a mask out of insignificance
Lingering around the stratosphere
So throw your fists up
For the fossilized apostles
Climb all over the graves of giants
To make yourself feel close to Colossal

[Hook: Ceschi]x4
Long live the great short lived
They all lived well

[Verse II: Sole]
I show that wear and tear on my face
And my clothes I wear, they tear
Cause I'm old like where my tears fell
In a cauldron
The elders stoned to death
In World War 1
On french battlefields
The avant-garde always died first
Die depressed, the way its gotta be
Down by booze
Clowned by shallow fools
Bitten by piranhas in shallow pools
I'm on a shadow run
Sippin 'my glass
And for them I'm always tipping my glass
It's half empty
Mostly gas
But its still a drink


[Bridge I:Sole]
Rest in a lost cause
Find no peace in a fresco
Nobody loves you like worms do
Show you the light like holes do
[Bridger I: Ceschi]
So rest in peace with musical pieces
Rotting around the guillotine
All of us remember something significant
But you weren't part of the final equation

[Bridge I: Sole]
[Bridge I: Ceschi]

[Bridge II: Sole]
And that's dirt
You can't go deep without discovering a body
In cities you can't go deep without discovering a body
You can't go deep [x4]

[Bridge II: Ceschi]
The one man band it broke up
Before the world got choked up
Before anyone noticed, he dissolved into smoke and dust
The one man band it broke up
Before the world got choked up
And the few friends he gathered
Scattered ashes mixed with coke bumps

[Verse III: Sole]
We all know the drive is far
When the tongue weighs a ton
Although they don't understand me
I carry a speech for when the Grammy's won
Torches don't get passed, they go out
The winner dies of dementia
And artists draw no pension
Its pecking your eyes while you're trying to read
Be the one to murder your faith while you're trying to believe
But don't fret
We all go down but look better in flames
It means nothing if only the tombstones remember our names
Only by pissing in the wind will you know the way its going
And only our fallen comrades know the true definition
(Of revolution)
Only by pissing in the wind will you know the way its going
And only our fallen comrades know the true definition
Of revolution

[Bridge II: Ceschi]x2

[Sole: overlapping Bridge II: Ceschi]
The bigger the giant
The harder it falls
It's simple physics idiots
The bigger the knife
The bigger the scar

12.Swallowed Salt (修改)

Produced By:DJ Scientist

Poor big baby
You finally got your guarantee
Let your ashes mix and match with the bones of the burnt economy
In an urn of little earnings
Learning never did a thing for me
They'll say Rest In Peace
They'll say Rest In Peace
But they really mean thanks for letting us be
Thanks for letting us breath
You swallowed salt and filled your lungs
Now there's no room for breathing now
And there's no room for singing

13.Julius' Final Song (修改)

Produced By:DJ Scientist

[Verse I]
Do you remember how he walked
Onto the stage like the world was ending
And this was his final song?
The way the sweat dripped off his nose
Forming a swirly pool of colors
On the cracked wooden club floor?
Now I recall the way he moved
Back then before the bullet
Shattered pieces of his skull
Spreading him all over the carpet
In that hotel room
They couldn't piece him back together
To sing his last tune

We only wanted one last song
A tune so we could sing along
We only wanted one last song
A tune so we could sing along

[Verse II]
No time machine exists quite yet
And all those voices we once worshiped
Solely belong to the dead
Sleeping so comfortably for now
Between some gatefold sleeves and shrink wrap
Piled on record store grounds
We all imagined his last song
A melody
To help us forget that our God was gone
To help us remember his face
Before the maggots crawled
Inside and out of his eye sockets
Such a perfect song

Ahhh ahhh ahhh men
Yadi yadi yadi yay
Gummy gummy gum drops

[Verse III]
But he's gone
Into the abyss
Falling fast
Sucked through a giant black hole
Deep into the center of the earth
Far from anybody's ears
Just flung
Into oblivion
Forgotten by the world
And the puppeteers
That once put him on a pedestal
Are repackaging
Hoping advances reappear
Now there's no way that we could ever
Dig him out beneath the
Mountains of records
That cover his dusty grave
He's done
And there's no übermensch
To soothe the senses
Truth is that we'll lose in the end
Everything dies soon
It's helpless


So you have you heard the one about the one man band?
The one man band
Yes, the one man band
