Track Name: New Empire
They put the bankers and the lawyers in the Hippodrome
And made them fight to the death
They fed the winners to lions
It was an awesome weekend
They helped me change my tire, threw my TV on the fire
I love the New Empire

I love the New Empire
Get dressed, set yourself on fire

They threw a party in the citadel Bosphorus
They gave everybody free white phosphorus
We got high and then our skin sloughed off
You said we had to fuck twice or it wasn't enough
You bought me jewelry from a liar, threw the clerics on the fire
I love the New Empire

I love the New Empire
Get dressed, set yourself on fire
Track Name: Human Being
Do you feel rejected by your government
the way I feel rejected by you?
Do you feel protected from the violence
the way I've been protecting you?

You're not a human being
You're not anything

Have you been directed by the corporate board of governance
'cause you just gotta do what you do?
Do you feel disrespected by your supervisor?
and baby just say yeah if you do

Yeah

You're not a human being
You're not anything
Track Name: Friday Night (Home Invasion)
Friday Night!

It was a Friday night home invasion
The cops fell asleep at the station
You thought that I was on vacation
What a horrific situation
And baby it's over
You said
Baby it's over, and I wish you were dead
It was a Friday night

Friday night!

Well I guess I should have known you were crazy
I was hiding underneath my bed
Waiting for somebody to save me
But you broke through the door instead
It was a Friday night home invasion
Male, 6'2" and caucasian
Cause of death strangulation
We need fingerprint identification
And baby it's over
You said
Baby it's over, and I wish you were dead
It was a Friday night

Friday night!

Well I guess you'll just go out to the graveyard
'Cause that's the only place that makes sense
I guess you'll just go out to the graveyard
And hide all of the evidence
Now hide my body
My bloody clothes
My tennis shoes
My monogrammed toothbrush
My valuables

Friday night!
Track Name: Fancy Friends
I was talking to your manager
You should practice your cuneiform
And I found your stash of cloroform
Just fucking dance

Did you major in philosophy?
They electrocuted Socrates
For his crimes against humanity
Let's fucking dance

Is your TV on the floor of your apartment?
Does your job not pay enough to afford rent?
Did mommy and dad graduate from Dartmouth?
Are you finding fun and fancy friends to play with?

You are driving through a barricade
Time is passing at a constant rate
Do you find it hard to concentrate?
Just fucking dance
Track Name: Life Is Pain
Good morning, baby
I love all your ideas
Took the job downtown
Where I guard the museums

Life is pain

Good evening, darling
Let me tell you the deal
I'm the son of a god
But that god isn't real
In the city
Where they call you by name
I'm 1000 years old
But I'm digging my grave

Life is pain

Deep as the sky
Strong as the ocean
We built the Parthenon
And sold it off to Romans

So pay tribute, honey
I absolve you your crimes
In ether
Where the world is unmade
A responsible man
A respectable trade

Life is pain
