THE GOLDEN RATIO


SOUND SOUND
GIVE ME THAT SOUND
MELODY SWEET & RHYTHM PROFOUND
WORDS WORDS
ALL OF THESE, WORDS
WRITE THEM DOWN AS THE BEAT DESERVES
PHI, PHI
COULD IT BE PHI?
THE RATIO’S GOLD AND THE TIME IS NIGH
WHEN I WILL LEARN HOW TO ABIDE
LET THE MUSIC BE MY GUIDE
WHEN THE YINS AND YANGS COLLIDE
I’M GOING TO SEE HOW I’M DEFINED

SO I’M GETTING PREPARED
I’M BUILDING WALLS
I’M GATHERING FOOD
I’M WORKING HARD
I’M WETTING MY LIPS
I’M COUNTING CHIPS
I’M LOOKING AHEAD
I’M PLAYING DEAD
I’M CLEANING IT UP
I’M TALKING SHOP
I’M TAKING VOWS
AND MAKING LIFE
SO WHY SHOULD I APOLOGIZE
FOR AN ACTION THAT WAS NEVER MINE?
SHOULD I HAVE BEEN SURPRISED
WHEN I LEARNED I WAS PAST MY PRIME?

NOW THERE’S NOTHING LEFT HERE TO BEGRUDGE
BECAUSE I PLAYED BASS FOR FILBOYD STUDGE
I NEVER WANT TO, BUT I JUDGE
IT’S INVOLUNTARY SLUDGE
I BREAK IT INTO FRAMES
BECAUSE I WANT TO DISCERN
WHAT THE POINT OF THIS IS
BEFORE THE MEETING’S ADJOURNED
SO TEACH ME TO FORGIVE
OR FATHOM A SIGH
IF YOU CAN’T SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE
THEN SHOW ME HOW TO DIE
SHOW ME HOW TO DIE!

WEIGHTS & MEASURES


PLEASE OH PLEASE STOP LOOKING AT ME
OH PLEASE OH PLEASE STOP LOOKING AT ME
WHY WON’T YOU JUST STOP LOOKING AT ME?
TURN YOUR HEADS AWAY BECAUSE
I MUST LOOK SO TERRIBLE
I MUST LOOK SO TERRIBLE
I NEED TO WORK OUT MORE I GUESS
I NEED TO WORK OUT MORE OH YES
I’M GOING TO SET MY SCHEDULE
AND GET THINGS DONE
THERE’S NO TIME TO WASTE
IT’S NOW OR NEVER

OH, I’M GONNA TO FEEL INVINCIBLE
YES, I’M GONNA TO FEEL INVINCIBLE
AM I DOING THIS JUST FOR THE PRINCIPLE?
OR IS IT ALL JUST ABOUT ME?
NO, I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THOUGHTS LIKE THAT
NO, I DON’T HAVE TIME TO SIT AND CHAT
I HAVE TO GET UP EARLY AND DROP THE FAT
SO THEY ALL WILL DESIRE ME
I’M GONNA LOOK SO GOOD
HOW GOOD? SO GOOD!
AND EVERYONE WILL THINK
I HAVE MY LIFE TOGETHER

EARLY TO RISE
I’M STUDYING THE MIRROR
FLEXING MY BODY
PAIN IS THE PRICE
I’M GONNA PAY
FOR A FINE PHYSIQUE
OF COURSE
MY DISCIPLINE’S SHARP
AS I FOLLOW MY DIET
FORCE ALL THE EVIL TOXINS OUT
AND PUT THE VITAMINS THROUGH MY VEINS
AND I SHOULD LIKELY SEE RESULTS
IN ABOUT EIGHTEEN WEEKS

OH, BUT IF THESE PLANS DON’T WORK
I CAN ALWAYS SAVE UP MONEY
TO CONSULT A SURGEON
WHO’LL ADJUST EVERYTHING
WITH A QUICK PROCEDURE
SO I WON’T HAVE TO WORRY
UNTIL I NOTICE SOMETHING ELSE
UNATTRACTIVE WITH MYSELF
THAT NEEDS FIXING

HUMAN OR MACHINE


IT WAS A SLEEPLESS NIGHT OF RESTLESSNESS
WHEN FROM OUTSIDE, I HEARD A NOISE
IT WAS STRANGE AND DISTURBING
IT WAS SO CLANDESTINE
IT WAS DIFFICULT TO KEEP MY POISE
I RUSHED OUTSIDE AND I STOOD THERE, SILENT
LOOKING FOR THE SOURCE OF STENTORIAN VIOLENCE
ALONE, I WONDERED WHERE THE NEIGHBORS WERE
WAS I THE ONLY ONE WHO HAD HEARD THE STIR?
THE NEXT THING I KNEW, I WAS OFF MY FEET
RISING STEADILY ABOVE THE STREET
ALL MY EXTREMITIES BEGAN TO STING
I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME

AM I HUMAN OR MACHINE?
AM I IN TUNE OR OUT OF KEY?
IF I COULD JUST HEAR THAT SOUND AGAIN
I’D BE ABLE TO BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE STATE I’M IN

WHEN MY FEET TOUCHED GROUND
I WAS DIFFERENT SOMEHOW
I COULD SEE THE WINDS MOVE
SO I CHOSE TO ESPOUSE
THAT THE MOMENT WAS REAL
AND I WAS ACTUALLY THERE
AND IT WASN’T JUST THE IMPACT
OF A FABLED AFFAIR
I KNEW NO ONE WOULD TRUST ME
IF I TOLD THEM THE TALE
DESCRIBING EVERY SECOND
OF THIS AURAL TRAVAIL
IT WAS JUST ANOTHER STORY
THAT NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE
EVEN THOUGH I COULD DETERMINE
ANY NUMBER TO THE NTH DEGREE

AM I HUMAN OR MACHINE?
AM I IN TUNE OR OUT OF KEY?
IF I COULD JUST HEAR THAT SOUND AGAIN
I’D BE ABLE TO BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE STATE I’M IN

AM I HUMAN OR MACHINE?
AM I IN TUNE OR OUT OF KEY?
IF I COULD JUST HEAR THAT SOUND AGAIN
I’D BE ABLE TO BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE STATE I’M IN

EASY AS PI


COME OVER HERE
MAKE YOUR ARGUMENT
FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE
SING IT LOUD AND CLEAR
YOU LEARNED THE MOVES
BUT FAILED TO UNDERSTAND
WHAT YOU THOUGHT WAS FAITH
SO NOW YOU JUST PRETEND
THAT YOU’VE BLOWN AWAY
THAT YOU’VE BLOWN AWAY
THAT YOU’VE BLOWN AWAY
THAT YOU’VE BLOWN AWAY
BUT I CAN TAKE YOU FAR FROM HERE
I WON’T MAKE YOU LOST
BUT I’LL ENGINEER
OUR ESCAPE
