Track Name: Preamble
There are two or more gathered here, for the glory of the artistic endeavor, with the tools provided by great men who have gone before; we will etch sound waves into binary code. Make no mistake; it is immortality we’re seeking here. May this music be heard long after we draw our last breaths… this music. It’s known as the language of emotion. It’s what makes us human. It’s what separates us, from the animals. There are those who don’t understand. There are those who pay no mind. There are those who let it pass without proper contemplation. I will contemplate. I want to play music until I die. I need to play music until I die. I will play music until I die.
Track Name: Deny the Inevitable and Feel Safe
And so the winters come and we’re frozen numb. Still water cannot fall we, cannot beckon the thaw it, sees we’re deserted by the sun. Obscured by the clouds. It seems there’s only one way out. I know we’re running out of time. I know there a deadline. Now the summer’s here. This burning hell we fear. Dry tongues recall the worst with no quenching of thirst it seems we’re punished by the sun. Exposed without clouds. It seems there’s really no way out. I know we’re running out of time. I know there’s a deadline. And so it seems we are destined to destroy ourselves. Armageddon. Get on. Armageddon.

Track Name: The Burning Man wants to Die
The rapid oxidation of a material
in the exothermic chemical process of combustion
releasing heat, light, and various reaction products
pertaining to a chemical change that is accompanied by a liberation of heat

This is a fire

At the ignition point, flames are produced.
Flames consist primarily of carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen and nitrogen.
Fire emits heat and light. In order for combustion and fire to occur, three things must be present: fuel, oxygen and energy, usually in the form of heat

This says the burning man
He fears a slow death by fire
To show mercy and fan the flames
Hopes the smoke will seize his lungs quickly.

Words are incendiary. Gonna need a Ladder truck. Only the precise combination of hydrogen and oxygen can save us from this arsonist. When a flammable or a combustible material, in combination with a sufficient quantity of an oxidizer such as oxygen gas or another oxygen-rich compound is exposed to a source of heat or ambient temperature above the flash point for the fuel/oxidizer mix, and is able to sustain a rate of rapid oxidation that produces a chain reaction. This is commonly called the fire tetrahedron. Fire cannot exist without all of these elements in place and in the right proportions. When exposed to a source of heat or ambient temperature above the flash point for the fuel and oxidizer mix to sustain a rate of rapid oxidation that produces a chain reaction.
Track Name: More Here Than in Any Other Place on Earth
For decades we have piled deficit upon deficit, mortgaging our future and our children’s future for the temporary convenience of the present. To continue this long trend is to guarantee tremendous social, cultural, political, and economic upheavals. You and I as individuals can by borrowing, live beyond our means, but for only a limited period of time. Why then should think that collectively as a nation we are not bound by that same limitation. We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow. If look to the answer, as to why for so many years we achieved so much, prospered as no other people on Earth…it was because here in this land, we unleashed the energy and individual genius of man to a greater extent than has ever been done before. Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured here, than in any other place on Earth. Therefore I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone. We’re not as some would have us believe doomed to an inevitable decline. I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing. We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow (Reagan, 1981).
Track Name: Sharp Contrast in Dull Light
Had your number meant to call
But had no courage left at all
That look of sorrow on your face was still too fresh in my mind
She put her child in a grave
What condolence could I give
to mend this mother’s broken heart as she
cried and cried and cried
She paid a price with this love
certain there was no God above
who would go and do this to her
and in the memory of the night
as he came forth she gave him life
as this had always been her dream
to hear newborn inaugural screams
Track Name: Cerebral Cortex Catastrophe
Instrumental. No lyrics.
Track Name: Aubade
Instrumental.

Step one: suggest a rendezvous
Step two: she accepts the proposal
Step three: buy a plane ticket
Step four: get on the fucking plane
Step five: arrive in the Pacific Northwest
Step six: the woman picks you up, be sure to have at least one long stem rose in hand
Step seven: she takes you back to her upscale downtown apartment
Step eight: before long allow yourself to be pulled into a long embrace, followed by a passionate kiss
Step nine: fall back in love with her while simultaneously making love to her
Step ten: proceed to enjoy the greatest weekend of your life, be sure to take plenty of mental photographs and note you will be intoxicated just as if you were on a psychotropic/mind altering drug, and you better believe the come down will be fucking intense
Step eleven: tell her goodbye while literally and figuratively kissing her goodbye
Step twelve: get back on the fucking plane
Step thirteen: fly the fuck home
Step fourteen: do whatever necessary to let her go
