Printed lyrics, yeah! And some great lyrics, to boot.

Some highlights,

from the first track, "The Wrong Way," a very personal rant,

"I don't want cast pearls to swin,
I don't wanna march peacefully,
no no no no no no no no no,
new negro politican
is stirring
is stirring
is stirring inside me
no there's nothing inside me
but an angry heart beat
can you feel this heart beat?"

from the fucking brilliant "Dreams," which i think is about a relationship and about power and about goals/dreams (obviously),

"oh warfarin' terrapin
unconfined undersigned
undersigned bantering
bartering bellowing
barracking blundering
pillaging plundering
living and lavishing
hammerings harrowing
flourishing flattening
levelling reveling
wrecking and ravaging
savoring savaging.
all your dreams are over now
and all your wings have fallen down
all your dreams are over now."

from "King Eternal," which i think is about the hopeless nature of men and power..

"afraid of thunder children, so hide your ears
hope your fortress holds up for many many many years
shudder, it's a shame
lightning, call the game
send us up a baby boy
let the smoke carry his name

if it's a girl let her shine"

And from the only-from-New-York-love-story category, "Ambulance," with it's mesmerzing chorus,

"because i will be your accident if you will be my ambulance and i will be your screech and crash and you will be my crutch and cast and i will be your one more time if you will be my one last chance"

I could go on (and on), but, I won't.

Got a lot of work done today. Thankfully.
