    This place has changed for good
    Your economic theory said it would
    It's hard for us to understand
    We can't give up our jobs the way we should
    Our blood has stained the coal
    We tunneled deep inside the nation's soul
    We matter more than pounds and pence
    Your economic theory makes no sense
    One day in a nuclear age
    They may understand our rage
    They build machines that they can't control
    And bury the waste in a great big hole
    Power was to become cheap and clean
    Grimy faces were never seen
    Deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
    We work the black seam together
    We work the black seam together
    The seam lies underground
    Three million years of pressure packed it down
    We walk through ancient forest lands
    And light a thousand cities with our hands
    Your dark satanic mills
    Have made redundant all our mining skills
    You can't exchange a six inch band
    For all the poisoned streams in Cumberland
    Your economic theory makes no sense
    One day in a nuclear age
    They may understand our rage
    They build machines that they can't control
    And bury the waste in a great big hole
    Power was to become cheap and clean
    Grimy faces were never seen
    Deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
    We work the black seam together
    We work the black seam together
    Should the children weep
    The turning world will sing their souls to sleep
    When you have sunk without a trace
    The universe will suck me into place
    One day in a nuclear age
    They may understand our rage
    They build machines that they can't control
    And bury the waste in a great big hole
    Power was to become cheap and clean
    Grimy faces were never seen
    But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
    We work the black seam together
    We work the black seam together

    Sunlight coming through the haze
    No gaps in the blind
    To let it inside
    The bed is unmade
    Some music still plays

    TV, yeah it's always on
    The flicker of the screen
    A movie actress screams
    I'm basking in the shit flowing out of it

    I'm stoned in the mall again
    Terminally bored
    Shuffling round the stores
    And shoplifting is getting so last year's thing

    X-box is a god to me
    A finger on the switch
    My mother is a bitch
    My father gave up ever trying to talk to me

    Don't try engaging me
    The vaguest of shrugs
    The prescription drugs
    You'll never find
    A person inside

    My face is mogadon
    Curiosity
    Has given up on me
    I'm tuning out desires
    The pills are on the rise

    How can I be sure I'm here?
    The pills that I've been taking confuse me
    I need to know that someone sees that
    There's nothing left I simply am not here

    I'm through with pornography
    The acting is lame
    The action is tame
    Explicitly dull
    Arousal annulled

    Your mouth should be boarded up
    Talking all day
    With nothing to say
    Your shallow proclamations
    All misinformation

    My friend says he wants to die
    He's in a band
    They sound like Pearl Jam
    The clothes are all black
    The music is crap

    In school I don't concentrate
    And sex is kinda fun
    But just another one
    Of all the empty ways
    Of using up a day

    How can I be sure I'm here?
    The pills that I've been taking confuse me
    I need to know that someone sees that
    There's nothing left I simply am not here

    Bipolar disorder
    Can't deal with the boredom

    You don't try to be liked
    You don't mind
    You feel no sun
    You steal a gun
    To kill time

    You're somewhere, you're nowhere
    You don't care
    You catch the breeze
    You still the leaves
    So now where?

    In troubled times
    It's hard to get straight answers
    Between the lines
    That border wrong or right
    The homeland cries
    It struggles with confusion
    But this feelin' still remains
    Like shelter from the rain

    We live of faith
    In the hands of those who guide us
    And tear the page
    On the fear we left behind
    We set the pace
    For every born survivor
    Don't turn the other way
    When I need to hear you say

    Allies with our backs against the wall
    I will answer when you call
    And take on the odds
    For what we believe is true
    Allies in a world of too much choice
    I only need your voice
    To tell me you care
    I'll be anywhere for you, allies

    We search our hearts
    To justify the reason
    And draw the line
    To meet somewhere halfway
    If faith is blind
    Through darkness it will guide us
    'Cause the spirit still remains
    With the keepers of the flame

    I know the pieces fit 'cause I watched them tumble down
    No fault, none to blame, it doesn't mean I don't desire to
    Point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over
    To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication

    The poetry that comes from the squaring off between
    And the circling is worth it
    Finding beauty in the dissonance

    It's alright
    There comes a time
    Got no patience to search
    For peace of mind
    Layin' low
    Want to take it slow
    No more hiding or
    Disguising truths I've sold

    Everyday it's something
    Hits me all so cold
    Find me sittin' by myself
    No excuses, then I know

    It's okay
    Had a bad day
    Hands are bruised from
    Breaking rocks all day
    Drained and blue
    I bleed for you
    You think it's funny, well
    You're drowning in it too

    Yeah, it's fine
    We'll walk down the line
    Leave our rain, a cold
    Trade for warm sunshine
    You my friend
    I will defend
    And if we change, well I
    Love you anyway

    Take, if you want a slice
    If you want a piece
    If it feels alright

    Break, if you like the sound
    If it gets you up
    If it brings you down

    Share, if it makes you sleep
    If it sets you free
    If it helps to breath

    Don't come over here
    Piss on my gate
    Save it just keep it off my wave

    Cry, if you want to cry
    If it helps you see
    If it clears your eyes

    Hate, if you want to hate
    If it keeps you safe
    If it makes you brave

    Pray, if you want to pray
    If you like to kneel
    If you like to lay

    Don't come over here
    Piss on my gate
    Save it just keep it off my wave
    Keep it off my wave
    Keep it off my wave, my wave

    Help me if you can
    It's just that this is
    Not the way I'm wired
    So could you please,

    Help me understand why
    You've given in to all these
    Reckless dark desires
    You're
    Lying to yourself again
    Suicidal imbecile
    You're pounding on a fault line
    What'll it take to get it through to you precious
    Over this, why do you
    Wanna throw it away like this
    Such a mess, well I don't wanna watch you

    Disconnect and self destruct one
    Bullet at a time
    What's your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

    Medicated, drama queen,
    picture perfect, numb belligerence
    Narcissistic, drama queen, craving fame and all it's decadence
    ...

    If you choose to pull the trigger, should your drama prove sincere,
    Do it somewhere far away from here

    We are building a religion
    We are building it bigger
    We are widening the corridors
    And adding more lanes
    We are building a religion
    A limited edition
    We are now accepting callers
    For these pendant key chains
    To resist it is useless
    It is useless to resist it
    His cigarette is burning
    But he never seems to ash
    He is grooming his poodle
    He is living comfort eagle
    You can meet at his location
    But you'd better come with cash
    Now his hat is on backwards
    He can show you his tattoos
    He is in the music business
    He is calling you "DUDE!"

    Now today is tomorrow
    And tomorrow today
    And yesterday is weaving in and out
    And the fluffy white lines
    That the airplane leaves behind
    Are drifting right in front
    Of the waning of the moon
    He is handling the money
    He is serving the food
    He knows about your party
    He is calling you "DUDE!"

    Now do you believe
    In the one big sign
    The double wide shine
    On the boot heels of your prime
    Doesn't matter if you're skinny
    Doesn't matter if you're fat
    You can dress up like a sultan
    In your onion head hat
    We are building a religion
    We are making a brand
    We're the only ones to turn to
    When your castles turn to sand
    Take a bite of this apple
    Mr. corporate events
    Take a walk through the jungle
    Of cardboard shanties and tents
    Some people drink Pepsi
    Some people drink Coke
    The wacky morning DJ
    Says democracy's a joke
    He says now do you believe
    In the one big song
    He's now accepting callers
    Who would like to sing along
    He says, do you believe
    In the one true edge
    By fastening your safety belts
    And stepping towards the ledge
    He is handling the money
    He is serving the food
    He is now accepting callers
    He is calling me "DUDE!"

    He says now do you believe
    In the one big sign
    The double wide shine
    On the boot heels of your prime
    There's no need to ask directions
    If you ever lose your mind
    We're behind you
    We're behind you
    And let us please remind you
    We can send a car to find you
    If you ever lose your way
    We are building a religion
    We are building it bigger
    We are building
    A religion
    A limited
    Edition

    We are now accepting callers
    For these beautiful
    Pendant key chains

    Nature, nurture heaven and home
    Sum of all, and by them, driven
    To conquer every mountain shown
    But I've never crossed the river

    Braved the forests, braved the stone
    Braved the icy winds and fire
    Braved and beat them on my own
    Yet I'm helpless by the river

    Angel, angel, what have I done?
    I've faced the quakes, the wind, the fire
    I've conquered country, crown, and throne
    Why can't I cross this river?
    . . .
    Pay no mind to the battles you've won
    It'll take a lot more than rage and muscle
    Open your heart and hands, my son
    Or you'll never make it over the river

    It'll take a lot more than words and guns
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle
    The hands of the many must join as one
    And together we'll cross the river
    . . .

    And now, a long-distance dedication to last night's brainwashing...ahem...I mean Oscar's ceremony...


    Psychic spies from China
    Try to steal your mind's elation
    And little girls from Sweden
    Dreams of silver screen quotation
    And if you want these kind of dreams
    It's Californication
    It's the edge of the world
    And all of western civilization
    The sun may rise in the East
    At least it settles in the final location
    It's understood that Hollywood
    Sells Californication

    Pay your surgeon very well
    To break the spell of aging
    Celebrity skin is this your chin
    Or is that war your waging
    First born unicorn
    Hard core soft porn
    Dream of Californication
    Dream of Californication

    Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
    Be my very own constellation
    A teenage bride with a baby inside
    Getting high on information
    And buy me a star on the boulevard
    It's Californication

    Space may be the final frontier
    But it's made in a Hollywood basement
    Cobain can you hear the spheres
    Singing songs off station to station
    And Alderaan's not far away
    It's Californication

    Born and raised by those who praise
    Control of population everybody's been there and
    I don't mean on vacation
    First born unicorn
    Hard core soft porn
    Dream of Californication
    Dream of Californication

    Destruction leads to a very rough road
    But it also breeds creation
    And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
    They're just another good vibration
    And tidal waves couldn't save the world
    From Californication

    Pay your surgeon very well
    To break the spell of aging
    Sicker than the rest
    There is no test
    But this is what you're craving
    First born unicorn
    Hard core soft porn
    Dream of Californication
    Dream of Californication
