Track Name: 1/4" Input In My Arm
Track Name: In The Time Of Exploding Heads
I found peace in martyrdom
I found love in bloodbaths
In the time of exploding heads
I found ignorance in media
I found arrogance in mankind
I found arrogance in media
I found ignorance in mankind
In the time exploding heads
In the time of exploding heads
Exploding heads (4x)
Track Name: Placebo Abuse
I got a packet of pills
Said they have no use
They're just sugar pills
It's placebo abuse

They're white
Like Tylenol
They've had no effect
No effect at all
Track Name: Crash Mob (Make It A)
Make it a crash mob (2x)
Cum in all the department stores
Dealing in the department stores
Doing lines down the aisles (2x)
Make it a crash mob (2x)
Full of strung out junkies
Or worn out local musicians
Make it a crash mob (2x)
Join each other in predictable tandem
Join each other in pandemonium
That means nothing, it means nothing
Even together, it means nothing
Where's all your friends? (4x)
Make it a crash mob (3x)
Track Name: Person Of Interest
A catchy term, media made
TV's the sperm and we are the egg
The mouth creates an insanity ring
Please tell us if you know anything
We're all persons of interest (4x)
Just let things slip with a lackadaisical grip
What the fuck is ownership?
Public perception is benign
All guilty of a criminal mind
We're all persons of interest (4x)
We're all persons of interest (4x)
