Track Name: AMFORTAS
You ask if I'm the guardian of the woods, or of sleep? Why can't I be both?
Just look upon our wounded king and all the pain he's brought us.
Listen, you get no points here for trying. No "attaboys" for failed multitasking.

Remember how we stood and cheered as he left to face the gelded wizard?
Remember how our hearts sank so low when he came back permanently injured?

And we've suffered ever since.
Because our king is bad at his job.
We liked him as the prince, but for leadership he's not cut out.
So we've suffered ever since.
Stuck with Amfortas.

Don't laugh! Shut your mouth! It's what got you here in the first place. While you take refuge in our company, do you realize your role in all this? Listen, bad things do happen, but there's no call for gleeful back slapping.

But I see something shimmering on this early Friday morning. It's a pure fool in armored disguise. The curse can finally be broken!
Anoint the new king!
Because our old one won't do his job.
He's earned our deference, and Amfortas he is not. So anoint the new king.
Because here time becomes space. Space becomes time. Uncover the Grail. Give us all our bread and wine!
Track Name: PENNIES
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse and they're offering pennies! Pennies! Pennies on the dollar for us!

If only C-SPAN shows up you might be fine.
But your fortunes decline with each and every camera present.
So be reminded...
...You've never been very likeable, it's worse when you try.
So lie back and think of England, lean into the skid [Whatever]...
...You get my meaning.

So no, there's no calling in sick to this.
No, there's no rescheduling for later.
No, there's no pawning this off on someone else.
You're the exact right person to explain that...

...This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse and they're offering pennies! Pennies! Pennies on the dollar for us!

Cast aspersions at your peril, it's unappealing.
You lost your focus, coasted, turned your back and it all fell apart.
But employees, prostitutes, shareholders all need to be paid.
This has never been a game of love, so don't pretend.
That'd be unseemly.

So no, we're not going out after this.
No, the drinks won't be free.
No, I'm not implicating anyone,
I know the blame squarely lies with me and...

...This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse and they're offering pennies! Pennies! Nothing but pennies!
Pennies! Pennies! Bags of damn pennies!
Pennies! Pennies! Surrounded by pennies!
Let me, let me tell you about pennies:

Folks want hope.
They want faith.
They want a crystal.
Want a diamond,
Want a Tiffany.
But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, wants to fuck a penny.
They want hope.
They want faith.
They want a crystal.
Want a diamond,
Want a Tiffany.
But nobody, and I mean NOBODY, wants to fuck a penny.

This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
You'd better gird your loins they're offering pennies on the dollar for us.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
This quarter's worse than any other.
This quarter's worse than the last quarter.
They're tearing us apart for the price of pennies on the dollar!
