Hero to the few Don't believe in you Filled with attitude Enemies we slew Astrobeef, take my hand Astrobeef, motherland Astrobeef, money man Astrobeef influenza Gusts of wind a-blew Nothing I can do What is wrong with you Breakin' your curfew
Anyway you want it I don't care about you Take whatever you get I don't really want to Traveling through time Take back what was mine I'm not responsible for you I'm broken scissors, you are glue Found you in a tunnel Crushed beneath the tower I'll build you an anthill I'll do it to wow her
Out here I stand beside you Broken bones and broken gun Well, I woke up in your cottage Blinded by the morning sun Stranded in a foreign village We can't hide, we can't run So we're drinking Turkish coffee While we hide from what we've done I'm running from the parrot's missile In a village, a foreign village I never should have blown the whistle Loot and pillaging the village I'm hearing quiet voices Take them out one by one Watch your careful planning crumble 'Neath the force of what's begun Hanging from a dying treetop Reaching slowly for my gun There won't be a happy ending This ain't business, this is fun
I want a dreamless life Locked up inside of me Stuck on this ship that's headed nowhere Look up into the sky Tell me what you see What do you think those clouds look like I want what I want I get what I take from you I live inside a cave I kill those I once saved I'm the rebel, I'm the slave That dark spot on the wall Tell me what it is Can you see into the future through it I just got born today (he just got born today)
I found my name in the database Housed in a tubular glass case I got an abduction nosebleed Tripped on an electric wire Commanding masses of prisoners Performing pressure experiments Ripping up secret documents I'm dressed up like a sad clown
Secret Hawk 03:46
I like the 2-step I like to boogie I like monsters I like airplanes I like to mellow I like hammers These are some of the things I like I like to whistle I like counting gold I like fire I like charts I like casting spells I like rats
Max it out Like a fox Grow a crop Eat it up Saw a light In the sky From down here In a mine Arch my back I'm a cat Mix it up Like a ghost Comet witch heat
I got a broken phase that won't hold a charge I'm from another age, I'm from another star I gotta blast my way out of this jar I took a nap and I took a drive in my car Contact the base, I know it I gotta cool it down, down at rainbow bar I'm seeing massive waves, don't know what they are I'm waking up for the first time, who are you? It's a mission that I'm gonna have to pursue
I watched you sleep last night Graveyard creeps dodging the light Stole away with seeds of hope Sunlight creeps in at your head Don't you know that we're coming for you? Riding a horse made of glue I ate an apple and I ate your mind I mark the ground where I put your kind Someone found a body last night It's not human and it's not right
I put my sunglasses on real smooth Get on my bike and ride outta town All you see is people following me Like the pied piper and his rats But where I'm goin', they won't be back See, where they goin', there ain't no light But there ain't no dark either And everything's real cool like... at least for me See, I'm gonna go in to this dark, dark tunnel And I'm gonna go in real slow Thing is, I'm gonna be comin' out the other side of that tunnel And they won't They're in the necrotermination dimension
When I woke up you were gone And I knew it was the end I was strung out in a land Oh, who knows where I've been Well, they said they found you here Cold and face down in the sand I coughed up lots of blood And I knew the end was near Turn it up Go ahead and burn it all Just turn it up Turn it up Sometimes it just hurts to fall Just burn it up Wore a mask, hid from the heat 'Cause I knew it wasn't true Felt safe away from them Alone with no beliefs Saw your face on the TV Felt that threat creep back again Took a long trip outta here Always running from something
I'm like a snake Except with arms and legs Exterminate I don't have what it takes Give me a chance Inside I'm made of snow A second chance Inside you take control I'll crawl inside of your mind To find out what you hide I won't like what I find Inside you Give what I take Fill up your mouth with pollen Sound the alarm Intruders coming in Inside the moon I'm building a volcano Defeat the beast Unprecedented death
I'm a vampire, baby And I don't mean maybe Humans in dungeons Exsanguination Fill up my saucepan Vampire time, baby, baby, baby, baby Eat some food, drink water Hey, guess what I bought her Penned up like cattle Prisoners from battle
Drowning sound around Life in slow motion Please help, I'm so scared Is it girl or boy? I want to meet someone Who likes to meet someone We will not have no fun I want to be someone Keep it down in there I can't hear in here Where are you today? I'm still lost alone Snowing white snowflakes It's so cold today You won't help me so That means I am free What is happening to the song we sing?
We're going down, down Into the city of doom You look around What are you going to do? But something happened to me It didn't happen to you If it's not happening Why is it happening to me? Don't be a clown, clown It's what you always do I'm gonna frown You'll get what's coming to you


The Buzzard's tenth album, just as baffling as the last nine. A collision of industrial, frenetic synthpop, black metal, and alternative rock from some bizarre alternate reality, interspersed with jarring musique concrète and bursts of unclassifiable noise. Ominously nonsensical. Unlike any other music in existence.
