Track Name: The Heartbreak Of Victory
THE CALL WENT OUT, THE FLAGS WENT UP
HOT SILENCE IN THE STREETS
THEY'RE PRACTICING MANEUVERS NOW
BLACK HELMETS IN THE SUN
THAT SHINES ON EVERYONE

DON'T BE ALARMED
IT'S JUST A TEST

IF THIS WERE AN EMERGENCY
YOU'D ALL BE DEAD BY NOW
IT'S STAND-UP COMIC TRAGEDY
A COUGH AND NO APPLAUSE
"IS THIS THING ON?"
Track Name: Habakkuk
WOKE UP LAST NIGHT WITH RINGING IN MY HEAD
IT STILL LINGERS
I FELT A VOICE PULL ME FROM MY BED
AND MOVE MY FINGERS
THESE FOLKS SHALL PAY FOR EVERYTHING THEY'VE DONE
AND EVERYTHING THEY
TOOK FROM THIS LAND
AND NOTHING THAT THEY DO
AND NOTHING THAT THEY SAY
CAN STOP THEIR CERTAIN FATE
THOUGH NOW THEY REVEL
ONE DAY THEY'LL PAY
THOUGH THEY TRY TO FLEE
THEY CAN'T ESCAPE IT
WE'LL HAVE OUR DAY
Track Name: Maximillian
MAXIMILIAN DROPPED THE TELEGRAM FROM HIS HANDS
AND GAVE A GLANCE
TO THE CLERK WHO QUICKLY PICKED IT UP WITH SHAKY HANDS
AND PUT IT IN THE STACK

JUST DOTS AND DASHES TRANSMITTED ACROSS THE SEA
OH MAXIMILLIAN, CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IT MEANS?
WHAT COULD IT HAVE SAID?
HOW COULD IT REALLY HAVE READ?

WALKING SLOWLY TO THE STATION
THE BACKS OF HIS HANDS, THEY DRIPPED WITH BEADS OF SWEAT.
CAN'T AVOID THIS CONVERSATION
HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF
HE FELT HIS KNEES GET WEAK
Track Name: Guilty Fever
AND NOW YOU'RE STRICKEN WITH THE GUILTY FEVER
WE THOUGHT WE'D FOUND OURSELVES A TRUE BELIEVER
AND WHEN IT'S MEASURED OUT IN CIGARETTE BUTTS
THERE'S NOT MUCH HOPE YOU'LL FIND OUT JUST WHAT'S WHAT (AND)

GUILTY FEVER.

YOU GOT A PLAN TO TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND NOW
YOU BROKE YOUR FISTS, SO YOU'LL JUST PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN
YOU WON'T GET CALLED ON NOW FOR EXTRA CREDIT
BUT WHEN YOU'RE DOWN AND OUT YOU WON'T REGRET IT

GUILTY FEVER.

YOU'VE GOT GUILT BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHY.
PUPILS EXPAND AS YOU CURSE YOUR EYES.
Track Name: Shut It Down, Turn It Off
DOLED OUT IN LITTLE PIECES
WITH NEW SELECTIONS FROM THE SIDELINE THESIS
COLLECT CALL SELECTS Y'ALL
SO SURREPTITIOUSLY THEY STACK THE SURVEY
BREAK OUT THE STATISTICIANS
THIS CHART WAS SPONSORED BY THE FACT-PATRICIANS
THE BLUE-SCREEN PROTEST SCENE
PROJECTS THE PICKET SIGNS AND NOW IT'S REALLY ON
WE'LL SEE WHO WILL GET THEIR FUNERAL AT SEA, WON'T WE?

SHUT IT DOWN, TURN IT OFF.
YOUR WORDS ARE WASTED
SHUT IT DOWN, TURN IT OFF
THIS TIME I MEAN IT, AND IT'S
SHUTTING DOWN, TURNING OFF.
YOUR WORDS ARE WASTED
SHUT IT DOWN, TURN IT OFF
THIS TIME I MEAN IT.

CUT TO THE CORRESPONDENT
WEARING THE JACKET WITH THE LOGO ON IT.
WE CAN'T SEE CATASTROPHE
GET SOME DESTRUCTION IN THE BACK, NOW, WILL YOU?
THE SENTENCE ENDED WITH A SUPERSCRIPT
BUT THERE'S NO CORRESPONDING FOOTNOTE YET.
GET THAT KID IN MY OFFICE NOW
WE'RE GONNA HAND THEM ALL THEIR WALKING PAPERS
THEN THEY'LL SEE WHO WILL GET THEIR FUNERAL AT SEA. WON'T WE?
