Track #1 from Private Shangri-La.
?We interrupt our programming. This is a personal emergency.?
?The following message is transmitted at the request of your conscience.?
?This is not a test!?

The Apocalypse already happened here.
The stench of it hasn''t disappeared.
You''d better lay low and steer clear of the men
in the shiny black helmets that sing out amen.
I didn''t believe when they showed me the light,
If you want to eat boy you gotta learn how to fight.
If you don''t believe you better learn how to lie.
Better lie, cheat and steal, take an eye for an eye.
The men of one book warned of impending doom.
So as not to look foolish, they better make it happen soon.

Start with the suckers the vulnerable and weak.
The sick and the dying, the unstable, the meek.
The mothers of soldiers, the dads of the dead.
I can feel my heart beating inside of my head.
Like a funeral drum for the death of the sun.
My personal apocalypse has just begun.

I live in the margins between ignorance and bliss.
My TV keeps me warm in the media abyss.
The man in the suit with the comb over from hell,
got his finger on the trigger of the holy cartel.
You can''t outrun the bullets from their righteous guns.
My personal apocalypse has just begun.

?You will not feel the brunt of the fire!?
?He shall not seek the one of little faith.?
?Though I go through the valley, in the shadow of death.?
?I shall fear no man.?

Your vision dims.
Eternal night.
Phantom limbs in the moonlight.
The seasons turn.
Cigarette burns.
Long sleeves hide cut marks dried.

Seasons turn.
Cigarette burns, in the night.
Your long sleeves hide,
the cut marks dried.
Keep it all inside.

The Apocalypse already happened here.
The stench of it hasn''t disappeared.
