02. We Are One

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Serj Tankian
Sending a beating to go
Send the battle the leaders is ready to roll
Send the beating to home
Send the battle the leaders are ready for war

Well you know
That we are one

Sending a beating to go
Send the battle the leaders is ready to roll
Send the beating to home
Send the battle the leaders are ready for war

Well you know
That we are one

Sending a beating to go
Send the battle the leaders is ready to roll
Send the beating to home
Send the battle the leaders are ready for war

Well you know
That we are one
We are one
We are one

Castrate, castrate all
This campaign as hoping as you can ever want
Anything as much as nobody thought you could

Sending a beating to go
I don't want poison and everyone's going crazy
I need to find a way out of this place
Goddamn hell help me no poison no please owww

Do I know who I am
When I know who are you
Demons know you try to
Lights are walking all over you

Sending a beating
The battle is ready to go
Sending a beating
The battle is ready to roll
Sending a beating
The battle is ready to roll
Everybody is really, ready to go


03. Botnus

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Efrem Schulz
Run, Run, Run...

Blast, Blast across your face
Deep cuts will open new space
As I fight, there's no way around
All the truth, the story never told

As we fight
Will you get us
Inside of the serenity

No loss, but ends without a lie
A new level, a reign of tolerance
A thrill ride you'll never wanna leave
Hold your breath it's your choice to look inside

The sign of doom, just when it's time to leave
Direct action, along with apathy
No other drug, but I love everyone
Mountains from molehills, crushing foundation
The lies are true, but fuck everything you've heard
My life hinges on every single word
I've got one last request before I leave
Kill me softly - Tear me limb from limb!

And now I'm gone...
My existence stretched too far...
I want this too much...
I want this too much...
So I may...

Run, Run

Bash, Blast across your face
Deep cuts will open new space
As I fight, there's no way around
All the truth, the story never told

As we fight
Will you get us
Inside of the serenity

As we fight
Will you get us
Inside of the serenity

Until next time!


04. Three Fingers

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Saul Williams
Three fingers on a swollen hand
Beside a dented garbage can
A blind man staring
At something only he can see
I spotted him like night
Sky plotted and star struck
Sits at alone, eats at home
Rafted in a sea of blackness

He rattles his cup
Just enough to call your bluff
You can't pretend you didn't see him
Catch his smile in the rear view
Out of the blue his guitar entered hard
With three fingers he plays
Praise what he says might scare you


05. Running From The Light

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Ejigayehu 'Gigi' Shibabaw, Maura Davis
If the angel should awake
Live the life I want to fight
Truly spoken, still I'm broken
Live to see, the promise shine

Running, running, running…

In the shadow, of an angel
With the promise, of the life
In the darkness of the doorway
In the burning of the night
Anywhere

I've reached
I've reached a turning point
God knows where I live
The love is all I have

I've reached
I've reached a turning point
God knows where I live
The thought is only of you

Running, running, running...

If the angel should awaken
Live the life I want to fight
Truly spoken, still I'm broken
Live to see, the promise shine
I can never let this go)

I've reached
I've reached a turning point
God knows where I live
The love is all I have

I've reached
I've reached a turning point
God knows where I live
The thought is only of you

I've reached
I've reached a turning point
God knows where I live
The love is all I have

I've reached
I've reached a turning point
God knows where I live
The thought is only of you

If the angel should awaken
Live the life I want to fight
Truly spoken, still I'm broken
Live to see, the promise shine
The promise shine
The promise shine


06. Coma

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Serj Tankian, Azam Ali
He stays still
He stays down
Unholy, unholy

He stays still
Stay unto me
Makes me feel unholy

Nothing
(Nothing)
Now that I have nothing
(Now that I have nothing)
I resolve to be nothing
(I resolve to be nothing)
Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain
(Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain)
I resolve to be nothing

Nothing
(Nothing)
Now that I have nothing
(Now that I have nothing)
I resolve to be nothing
(I resolve to be nothing)
Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain
(Nothing to harm me, nothing to gain)
I resolve to be nothing

Nothing (Nothing)
Nothing (Nothing)

He stays still
Stay unto me
Makes me feel unholy
Makes me feel unholy

We stay
No cause, stay
We stay
No cause, stay
We stay (Makes me feel unholy)
No cause, stay
We stay (Makes me feel unholy)
No cause, stay
We stay (Makes me feel unholy)
No cause, stay

(Unholy)
No


07. Waiting Hare

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Serj Tankian
I talked to you today
About all the troubled times when nothing goes
Nothing goes away
And all the things you've told me to believe in

I'm alone in my reveries
I'm alone in the pain you brought on
I'm afraid that you won't see me
And all the times we had

I've been waiting here
Waiting by the phone
I've been touching you
In my only thoughts

Don't you know
That I'm still here
Waiting for you, call me to your
Life insincere

Left your stormy days
Don't you know you're mine?
You see it all behind
Don't you see the sky?

I want us all together
Do you know we're right?
You leave us all denied
Let you all decide

You call me today with your enemies
You call me today with your infinite dreams
We talked about it, you're in my mind
Taking caution, I'm leaving you behind
Taking caution, leaving you behind

I've been waiting here
Waiting by the phone
I've been touching you
In my only thoughts

Don't you know
That I'm still here
Waiting for you, call me to your
Life insincere

Left your own today
Don't you know you're mine?
Left your own behind
Can't you see the sky?

It's a stormy day
Don't you understand?
We're in all behind
Let you all defend

Ah, ah
Take compassion, take compassion
Take compassion, take compassion
Leaving you behind

Left your own today
Don't you know you're mine?
Left your own behind
Can't you see the sky?

See them fall behind
Don't you know you're mine?
Left it all behind
Can't you do the same?

But can't you do the same?
Left your own today
But can't you do the same?
Left your own behind
But can't you do the same?
Leave us all behind
Can't you do the same?


08. Interlude

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti
Tell me that you hate me
Look right in my eyes
Say that you wont date me
And say goodbye
Cause, I'll go, you know
Never never to come back again


09. Funbus

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Dirk Rogers, Keith Aazami
Why has the humor died in music today?
Everyone's so serious that I'm afraid to say...
Tough guy stance is lost on me.
Violence is necessary, it proves you are free.
Happy being sold mediocrity,
Failure only happens from originality.

It's more important to be tough than to have any fun,
Like an insecure human who fears everyone.
Music is art that we're afraid to enjoy,
Like a child who's outgrown his favourite toy.
Afraid to acknowledge what makes us feel good.
Afraid to leave the mould, if we only could.
A group is always easier to follow
Than finding something new to swallow,
So give us the art that's boring and plain,
It's easier to be different when it's the same.
Fear something new till we're told it's ok.
No time to explore, no time to play.
The craving for new is something to shun.
Thinking is bad, it spoils the fun!

discover yourself with mass appeal.
Pretend your choices make you real.


10. The Hand

Music & lyrics by Buckethead, Dan Monti, Maximum Bob, Ani Maldjian
My Hand,
My Hand,
My Hand,
My hand,
myyyy handd!
why'd I put it in the guillotine?
why'd I put it in the guillotine?
I dont know,
Our days are in rows
My Hand
Fingers cut in half
My Hand
Ball sweat and b and c and c
Tendons severed!
My Hand
My Hand
My Hand, My Hand, My Hand
Hand!
(laughter)
You aren't going to crawl away from me, are ya?
No you're not.
Don't you crawl away from me
Don't you crawl no no no no
Look, nickel, nickel
I ain't going to put you in the guillotine again
(Laughter)
My Hand
My Hand
My Hand
my hand
(Laughter)
Here they are, four fingers,
Look what you done to me!
My Hand
(moaning)
Ladies those are precious,
Teachers don't work
Here we go
I don't have to play with that hand anymore
I can just, I'll will just
I'll keep it in my, I'll keep it in my pants pocket
That's all I carry around with me
It's little so don't matter
I can still pet the dog with it
Damn you guillotine
Who would have thought a guillotine could have done something like this?
I have it in the closet, and another thing,
I thought I would do it again
My Hand
It's never able to work again,
Your hand is useless now,
It's never able to work again.
Ladies those are precious,
Teachers don't work
Here we go
It's never able to work again,
Your hand is useless now,
It's never able to work again.
Don't you crawl away from me again (Don't you crawl away from me again)
Gonna scratch some hands
Sit here in my pocket,
Lets be good friends
Come on man
Come on just
(laughter)
No
I may not be hungry before I got some,
I can suture
I can do some stitches, I can sew you together
Give it away to men to shake hands
And call it buddy
My hand
It's never able to work again,
Your hand is useless now,
It's never able to work again.
