Blind Devotion. G! D! A! G! E riff They say the world is false, godless, born of lust And hell has 3 gates: lust anger and greed He that seeks perfection, he achieves in me There is no rebirth once I am achieved G! D! A! G! Blind Devotion G! F ! C! D! Blind Devotion Each person’s nature dictates his manner of devotion And man is what his faith is The anti gods are worshipped by unthinking men Who torture Atman with lust and selfishness G! D! A! G! Blind Devotion G! F ! C! D! Blind Devotion B E They gods say all work should be renounced B E And Pleasant duties are the same as unpleasant ones A E The true renouncer is one who’s debts have been paid in full D B The fruits are given up, that is absolute Blind Devotion Riff out

IN THE END Let me connect Feel so lost Let me belong to Something strong Let me collect What is wrong In The End You fold your arms and scan the skies and tell yourself Just relax your mind Let me protect Sacred song Let me divest won’t take long Let me correct Things long gone In The End You fold your arms and scan the skies and tell yourself Everything’s alright In The End

ARSEHOLES A horseback rider High on a hill Is a silhouette moving Against the new sky Its appears as it is Why are the follies Of man like shadows The words that flow From his poison pen Or rather through cheap Microphones Truth and lies Are all we can see From this mountain of words That rise from beneath The mouths of babes Celebrity talks And I’d rather walk Arseholes are everywhere There’s romance and action Science and fiction So many genres And God botherers And mouths to feed Arseholes are everywhere They sit in small rooms And the yellow walls speak Here comes the spin doctor He’s looking real good We’re so overwhelmed He’s got digital compositors So nothing looks real Arseholes are everywhere They’re sitting in judgment They’re sitting in pairs They don’t say much They got a gift for true silence As quiet as death It kills off the room It kills off the womb If walls could speak Arseholes The closer I get to the other side I just want to walk in the shadows of him The closer I get to the other side The closer I get to the feelings I hide I just look around and my friends have all died I just want to walk in the shadows of him The closer I get to the other side I just don’t want to walk in the shadows of trees I just want to walk in the shadows of him Estoy en el Golfo de Méjico Se está Calentando, y más lento Allí en el Golfo de Méjico estamos perforando con más profundidad que sabras Estoy en el Golfo de Méjico Hay cinco millones de barriles que rebosan Alli en el Golfo de Méjico Horizonte de aguas profundas, siguen con la fuga allí bajo, Estoy en el Golfo de Méjico Glen Campbell cantó Galveston en el espectáculo Alli en el Golfo de Méjico Se está Calentando, cada vez mas lento I cried for justice You cried for me They push cathedrals into the sea I cried for justice We let it be They start the wars to make us all free I cried for justice You cried for me They build more oil wells under the sea I cried for justice
