The following pages record the lives of prominent survivors, who aim to  build something they perceive is worth striving for. But in this future, without laws, prisons, or rules, what good can come from these ashes?  What bad can come from the fire? A man’s greed is as sturdy as the  foundations on which he built his selfishness, and in this situation,  selfishness becomes a survival tactic. In this Era of Uncertainty, the only  constant is devolution. 

Smear the tendency 

Just in time for New Year’s Eve 

 

The first year you're out there 

The first year you're out there 

And when I need answers 

 

You'll be out there 

You'll be there 

 

Mommy ran to the nearest barbershop pole 

And took care of the glass 

Took a wad of cash 

 

And once done the kids had fun 

With the candy cane sun 

 

From now on haircuts are for no one 

The first year makes them run 

 

Smear the tendency 

Just in time for New Year’s Eve 

First year you're out there 

And when I need answers 

 

You'll be out there 

 

You’re on the windmill good times 

Stomp on my shoulder good times 

You hold the world loved one 

 

Once done the kids had fun 

With the candy cane sun 

From now on 

Haircuts are for no one 

 

Smear the tendency 

Just in time for New Year’s Eve 

 

First year you're out there 

And when I need answers 

You'll be out 

I am the genesis 

I am the crest 

I am the beat banging out of your chest 

 

Gimme your money 

I don't want the rest 

The people in headlines 

That say that I'm blessed 

And you will be too if you stick around with me 

 

I help people see 

All they can be 

There's nothing people 

Haven't tried to achieve 

So let's get together and rock the status quo 

 

There's something inside me 

It's hard to express 

You give me the perfect 

I give you the best 

Obsidian wrapped in Venice is my heart 

 

I help people see 

All they can be 

There's nothing people 

Aren't willing to die 

As long as you're willing to try for you can change the status quo 

 

I help people see 

All they can be 

There's nothing people 

Aren't willing to die 

As long as you're willing to try for you can rock the fucking world 

 

I am the genesis 

I am the crest 

I am the beat banging out of your chest 

 

Had many names 

Pseudonym trees 

So pick any present 

You'd like me to be 

But you cannot deny that I'm you 

 

I travel the world 

In search for a girl 

She's capable, beautiful, graceful and smart 

But obsidian wrapped in Venice is her heart 

 

I help people see 

All they can be 

There's nothing people 

Aren't willing to die 

As long as you're willing to try for you can change the status quo 

 

I help people see 

All they can be 

There's nothing people 

Aren't willing to die 

As long as you're willing to try for you can rock the fucking world 

 

I am the genesis 

I am the crest 

I am the beat banging out of your chest

‘67 

These generations can 

Shake my right hand Stan 

A girl once told me that 

I should go to work 

An honest man for one day 

And I stood there with a little smirk 

 

A girl once told me that 

I’m not around 

You'll blindfold me upside down 

And I said let's see the best show in town 

 

A girl once told me to 

Call the police 

I watched my car done cease 

And she said how bout it for the 

Influence Machine 

 

A girl once told me 

I'm General Lee 

Talked me out Confederacy 

So we moved out of Lee County 

 

A girl once told me to 

Retrace my tracks 

I went ahead, did not last 

Smoked grass and try to relax 

 

A girl once told me that 

I should try to breathe 

An empty cartilage canteen 

And I stood there with the 

Influence Machine 

(Communist)

(Gangster)

(Computer)

(God)

 

A girl once told me that 

Feedback is key 

Hades make me lazy 

And I stood there with the 

Influence Machine 

 

(I want to run away)

 

A girl once told me 

A girl told me 

On my knees, beg and plead 

And I stood there with the 

Influence Machine 

 

(She's deaf and mute)

 

A girl once told me that 

There's something to say 

Linguists in the family 

Alright

Well, we sure do like to get down here at the

Minnesota Committee of Jesus

And I'd just like to take this opportunity to introduce our

Wonderful group of holy rollers

 

Hi, I'm Linell, and I like birds

Hi, my name's Olive, and I love corn

I'm Vicky, and I like toast

I'm Ethan, and dinosaurs never existed

 

Hi, I'm Steven, ever heard of the color green?

Hi, I'm Ally, and I'm an autistic savant

Oh hi, I'm Taylor, and the sky isn't real

Hi, I'm Amber, and I've never eaten dirt

Hey guys, Nigel, shit

 

Haha, alright

Well I'd just wanna thank y'all for joining us

And let's get right on back to the music

Let me tell you 

About the first man and woman 

They made lines 

To separate the people 

They made race 

To section the people 

They made the countries 

And the cities and the states 

 

And they made laws 

And arrested my people 

They made war 

And murdered my people 

 

People of the world 

Set yourself free 

 

So the people wanted comfort 

So they burnt down the trees 

And they wanted to get high 

So they payed the pharmacies 

They wanted to feel full 

So they hunted the elephants 

And they wanted to feel power 

So they made the dollar bill 

 

They wanted to go fast 

So they kicked out the Indians 

 

Share your earth 

Before lines become walls 

Share the mountains 

Share the valleys 

Share the rivers that flow 

 

Share your earth 

Before it's too late 

Share the mountains 

Share the valleys 

Share the rivers that flow 

 

So the people were afraid 

And we gave them guns 

And the people were bored 

So we gave them TV 

And the people wanted more 

So we gave them satellites 

And the people wanted more 

So we gave them skyscrapers 

 

People of the world 

Please set yourself free 

 

Cause now the lines we created 

Have turned into walls 

And the war we created 

Turned into destruction 

 

And the race we created 

Turned into greed 

And the laws we created 

Turned into bricks 

 

And the skyscrapers we built 

Came a crumbling down 

And the people I love 

Turned into robots 

And the people I love 

Turned into robots 

 

Share your earth 

Before lines become walls 

Share the mountains 

Share the valleys 

Share the rivers that flow 

 

Share your earth 

Before it's too late 

Share the mountains 

Share the valleys 

Share the rivers that flow 

When we started 

We were beautiful 

 

Innocent animals 

Learning their role 

 

Living the way our earth 

Permitted 

The cycle of life 

 

Universal and simple 

 

Each giving and taking 

What is needed 

We have ourselves 

But each other too 

And we found that 

 

1 is weaker than 2 

Usually 

 

No different from our 

Daily pray 

Cause they took some of us still 

Every day 

 

This would have been 

The history of the human 

If the stars weren't immortal 

 

If the Gods never fell 

Before they rain it down on our 

Innocent hives and 

And give us a craving to 

Expand our lives 

 

The star shattered bodies 

Slipping into our lungs 

Seeping into our brains and 

Flowing through our veins 

 

We've never seen the world like this 

Suddenly asking questions like what's this? 

Why? 

And how? 

 

And jealousy was born 

Curiosity and dissatisfaction to 

The chicken or the egg 

Man or woman 

You or me 

Will see 

 

And when we didn't know 

Rage and distrust was born 

And suddenly 

1 became stronger than 2 

 

Though this tiny God shards 

The human was smaller 

At first they tore us to shreds 

Though incredibly strong we are 

 

As the weakest died 

The symbiosis went too far 

Too far 

 

The perfect pose for this 

Cosmic ghost that 

Made us strive for 

Fire 

 

And it stayed with us through 

Our children 

When they then gave it to 

Their children 

Ooo, it did 

 

And the sickest part of all 

Is we didn't even know we 

Agreed to this 

Parasitic relationship 

With the blood 

Of some ancient nova 

 

Though they gave em reasons 

For the halls of walls 

So we made up our own 

We believed them 

Even though they may be lies 

Orange is a warm laziness 

Never to be taken 

 

Like the song 

Orange is a warm laziness 

Never to be taken 

Like the song 

 

Like the song 

Like the song 

We all sing along 

 

Like the song 

Like the song 

The earth beats along 

 

Orange is a warm laziness 

Never to be taken 

Shut your eyes 

Just like me 

 

Orange is a warm laziness 

Never to be taken 

Like the song 

 

Like the song 

Like the song 

We all sing along 

 

Like the song 

Like the song 

The earth beats along 

Cut your mutt and fake the feeling 

Light the fairs up to the ceiling 

Our good friend is here in town 

So we start smelling out the clown 

 

It’s only getting started 

We grew some lazy hearts 

Only getting started 

 

Another voice who has been stationed 

Hold on internal deep vacation 

Call my name 

I know I won’t go insane 

 

Under the radar 

 

Prince against the world 

You tortured soul 

Everyone living their own life 

Only one else who can make it weird 

 

Blimp on all their radars 

You go to it the freedom 

Prince against the world 

 

Under the radar 

From the effect they have when they are used 

Infinite effect 

 

Oh my god, he just said it 

How's life 

How did he know that 

 

The reason why we're here 

The tree of life gave us 

Life to live 

 

You won't feel the effect 

You will not feel the effect 

After the harshness 

 

The reason why we're here 

The tree of life gave us 

Life to live 

Hey everybody have you heard the news? 

It’s ringing up and down your head 

Hey everybody have you made me confused yeah? 

I’m still finishing my 1st cigarette of the morning 

I haven’t really started to think yet 

 

Why you trying to fill me with your other thoughts? 

I wasn’t giving any mind to hungry children before 

I was doing kinda swell 

Yeah 

 

I was doing kinda swell 

 

Love me anyway 

And I know that you hate 

And it goes round your head 

That’s the joke, it’s okay 

That’s the joke, it’s okay 

It goes round your head 

 

I know that she’s laughing at me 

But that’s okay because I’m in on the joke 

I think it’s funny too 

Cause it’s true 

It’s true 

Yeah 

 

And I just went off course 

Because I put my ego in the song 

And I wanted to sing about how this guy was making jokes about me 

And I was just like nah that’s some wack shit 

I don’t wanna listen to this guy telling jokes about me 

But I’m just laughing at him anyways 

Cause what the fuck am I gonna do 

Say dude stop fucking being a dickhead? 

 

Ah fuck 

Maybe I could’ve done that 

O shit 

 

I can’t believe you twisted my words 

Could’ve made it stretch and hurt 

Could’ve broken a lil words bones 

 

And so I have to say that 

That is cool 

I’m sorry thank you for doing the thing 

Yes 

 

That’s an end 

I’m still eatin’ 

Yah 

 

I’m still breathin’ 

I got people on my back 

And they not leavin’ 

 

Ain’t that cool though 

They don’t know I’m a fool though 

Climb on yo bitch 

Wanna suck my kudos 

 

What I got on my wrist 

But you got no foreplay 

And I got with yo bitch 

Got her in 4 days 

 

Hit her like Jorge

I threw you some ass 

 

But I grabbed that 

And you sad ya 

Look at my cash app 

I got stacks 

You got ass 

I’ll take in all your advice 

General Tsu 

 

I’m in a full blown cartoon 

He takes me up on a hot air balloon 

I’m taking in the whole world on display 

I throw away the faults of yesterday 

 

On the coast, I’m healing 

With General Tsu 

 

One by one, he goes and simplifies 

One by one, the land around the bend 

One by one, he climbs the mountain side 

One by one, until the bitter end 

 

One by one, we pet the magic hog 

One by one, inside the loony bin 

One by one, believe we’re underdogs 

One by one, until the bitter end 

 

I’ll take in all your advice 

General Tsu 

 

Trusting in his overrule 

Only when we’re down, down, down 

Watching his rebound, bound, bound 

In the debris, I know he’ll fetch me 

 

On the coast, I’m waiting 

For General Tsu 

 

One by one, he goes and simplifies 

One by one, the land around the bend 

One by one, he climbs the mountain side 

One by one, until the bitter end 

 

One by one, we pet the magic hog 

One by one, inside the loony bin 

One by one, believe we’re underdogs 

One by one, until the bitter end 

 

I’m taking your advice 

I’m taking your advice 

I’m taking your advice 

I’m taking your advice

(I’m taking all his advice)

I’m taking your advice 

(I’ll take it every day)

 

I’m taking your advice 

(Believe me when I trust in you)

I’m taking your advice 

(I believe General Tsu)

 

I’m taking your advice 

(We'll take it, we'll take it)

I’m taking your advice 

(Watch out cause General Tsu)

 

I’m taking your advice 

(Whatcha gonna do about it)

The unstable fool 

Can’t resolve this 

Stable behavior 

 

Gives an absolute kiss 

To my lips 

 

What I just heard 

Influences what I fear 

When I smell your stares 

When I smell your stares 

 

The unstable fool 

Revolution 

Revolution 

O stimming, cooling 

Stimming, cooling 

 

What I just heard 

Influence what I hear 

Ya stare cause ya care 

Ya stare cause I’m out there 

 

O I smell your stares 

O I smell your stares 

O I smell your stares 

O I smell your stares 

I got to 

 

Day 3 

Day 4 

 

I said 

Day 3 

Day 4 

 

I’m saying 

Day 3 

Day 4 

Yes 

I have sung young 

And handled blood toned tongs 

And driven death into song 

And driven song into breath 

 

Brandished the gun 

Shooting the lung 

On the face 

The stomach 

Or the heart 

Have done everyone 

Much more than once 

 

No kidding hon 

No joking son 

Flooding mountain 

 

Come to the valley flood 

You brung water and blood 

Undertows of mud 

Undertones of swallowed love 

 

Like I swung young 

Like I sung young 

My mother myth 

To magic sprung 

From zeppelin sponge 

Her red hook 

Cut out 

My hungry tongue 

 

Tumbling froth 

Lunge mountain 

Lunge mountain down 

In banks 

Out of banks 

Wrung the last 

I could wring 

From my heart trust 

Done the most lust 

I could 

 

To make the sounds 

Sound sung 

Is it efficient 

Or does it kill 

With the skill of a cluster bomb? 

 

It'll take time 

But you know it will 

If I happen to live that long? 

 

If you would listen to me 

Things wouldn't seem so gloomy 

Now you keep jamming up the gears 

And I can't see through the smears 

And everything's exactly as it appears 

 

More 

I love you more 

I love you more than I did before 

But now it's either or 

Or neither nor 

And when I think about you 

 

I start turning green 

And it shakes me up inside 

Cause it used to be the color of your eyes 

 

Everywhere I go 

I see your ghost 

The spirit of 91 

You said you loved me more than toast 

But less than a staple gun 

 

Is this the wrong direction? 

That's such a stupid question 

Now when you make a sacrifice 

You're supposed to get a wish 

Why does this only work in theory 

 

More 

I love you more 

I love you more than I did before 

But now it's not allowed 

You're not around 

I see you going out 

 

And everything goes black 

And I start to fall apart 

It reminds me of the color of your heart 

 

More 

I love you more 

I love you more than I did before 

But now we're in a war 

And what's it for 

I read your horoscope 

 

And everything is clear 

And it feels a little weird 

Cause it used to be the color of your tears 

I've been here for a couple of hundred and 

Million, billion, trillion, zillion centuries 

I've been here while I stay clear and fight fear and 

Weep tears while wishing the best upon all of the rest of my frenemies 

I've been here for a couple of hundred and 

Million, billion, trillion, zillion centuries 

 

Planted my ancestry 

Lit the cancer in me 

Right upon the reaper 

O I'll never leave her 

 

All abroad the kid nest 

Wubbing with some cyborg 

All you little cremlings 

Kick it in the tripod 

 

I've been here for a couple of hundred and 

Million, billion, trillion, zillion centuries 

I've been here while I stay clear and fight fear and 

Weep tears while wishing the best upon all of the rest of my frenemies 

I've been here for a couple of hundred and 

Million, billion, trillion, zillion centuries 

 

Humming past the plaza 

Blasted towards Tanguska 

Radiation in me 

Radiation in me 

 

Templeton or spaceman? 

O they never listen 

 

Where are the kids off to? 

Are they afraid of you? 

Where are the dragons you promised? 

Where is the zoo I once knew? 

 

Where are the kids off to? 

Are they afraid of you? 

 

Moa down the last stage 

Chupacabra any day 

We gotta wake the moth man 

We gotta wake the moth man 

 

Once a Bali seabird 

Now a dreaded moth jam 

There's the dragons you promised 

There's the zoo I once knew 

 

I've been here for a couple of hundred and 

Million, billion, trillion, zillion centuries 

I've been here while I stay clear and fight fear and 

Weep tears while wishing the best upon all of the rest of my frenemies 

I've been here for a couple of hundred and 

Million, billion, trillion, zillion centuries 

I've been here while I stay clear and fight fear and 

Weep tears while wishing the best upon all of the rest of my frenemies 

 

Goodbye 

Goodbye 

Said I didn't want to see you die 

I say goodbye 

Let those who love the lord 

Arise... 

Those who adore his glorious name 

 

We can do nothing without the lord 

How can we doubt thee lord 

Our great God... 

 

Oh unite me to thyself lord 

With inseparable bonds 

(Unite me to thyself lord)

Let me love with with the love like Jesus love 

For every lost soul 

(Every lost soul)

 

If we weep at night lord 

There'll be joy in the morning 

Jesus let not sin find a place 

In my heart 

 

I need thee lord 

Lord how I need thee 

 

Let those who love the lord 

Arise... 

Those who adore his glorious name 

 

We can do nothing without the lord 

How can we doubt thee lord 

Our great God... 

People will crow when the sun is on the rise 

What do they know when their visions black and white? 

How will they glow when they only retreat? 

Ain’t it a drag when you never get to be 

 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I multiply 

 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

 

People will watch with them dreary lifeless eyes 

How will they grow when their bodies never jive? 

Hurts the wit with appointed 45s 

Countrywide and the luck of suicide 

 

Now people will crow when you point out all their lies 

What do they know if they don’t know wrong from right? 

 

How will they glow when they only retreat? 

Ain’t it a drag when you never get to be 

 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I multiply 

 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

I’m taking all their sins and 

We’ll take them out today, ooh ooh what’d we say? 

We’ll take them out today, ooh ooh what’d we say? 

We’ll take them out today 

Upon the Christmas Day 

Gotta make our case 

Win the reindeer games 

 

Goddamn hounds 

They’re looking at us now 

No sense of town 

So we flip em upside down 

Jestas know there’s 

Snowhere to go 

 

(I dream of a white Christmas)

 

The Jestas in town have blown out the hounds 

And all we gotta do is pick up the crown 

A left hand lust, A right hand trust 

The losers in town are dying on us 

 

Goddamn hounds 

They’re looking at us now 

No sense of town 

So we flip em upside down 

Jestas know there’s 

Snowhere to go
