MOVING PARTS LYRICS

All songs - words & music by Gary Schutt


A MILLION MILES AN HOUR

I am a freight train
A loaded stealth plane
Thousand and one megatons
I am a cluster bomb
Unholy napalm
Atomic submachine gun
Enola Gay on the way to level out Tokyo

I am the comet’s tail
A bullet entrail
Straight through the apple core
The vast entity
I’ll target your city and knocking on your front door
A love affair is in the air with the death romeo

But I won’t wait, I won’t wait, I won’t wait for you
At a million miles an hour and no way to make or break
I wont wait for you

Devastation
Obliteration
The demolition man
Your obsession
My trajection in the heart of the land
Coming down like the rain of Armageddon

But I won’t wait, I won’t wait, I won’t wait for you
At a million miles an hour and no way to make or break
I wont wait for you

A mass of rock and an iron core
A tail of ice and your darkest fear
Bout to collide with your atmosphere

Aggravation
Desperation
I’m peering down on you
Immortality
An informality
A juggernaut attitude
I am the hand of the God that you cannot dispute

But I won’t wait, I won’t wait, I won’t wait for you
At a million miles an hour and no way to make or break
I wont wait for you
But I won’t wait, I won’t wait, I won’t wait for you
At a million miles an hour and no way to make or break
I wont wait for you

UNTIL I SEE YOU AGAIN

Counting sheep I cant sleep now
I cant make my mind rest
You know my thoughts will be with you
Be still my beating chest

A thousand miles now
Between the hearts
Another year will pass

Until I see you again
I’ll be burning at both ends
Like the world without end
Until I see you again

Like the day of a new dawn
We will resurrect
And the day will breed new life
If only to connect

A million hours now
From now till then
Pass in the blink on an eye

Until I see you again
I’ll be burning at both ends
Like the world without end
Until I see you again

oh sleep, where art thou? for thine be essential to my well being. why have you forsaken me? my night hath become greater than my day. for when my slumber finally consumes me, my day shall be utterly consumed...and unproductive. restful i shall be not, cuz restless i am. i just want to die for 7 or so hours, then live again, then repeat. please not to dream, for dreaming is the soul in action, and not at rest.

When the heavens rest my head
I’ll be waiting at wits end
In the silence of my rest
Until I see you again

PORNIPULATION

Sex sells
Everyones buying
Watch my economy grow

To grow you rmountain out of dough

You got it

She sells seashells down by the seashore
She can sell a lollipop to a baby
Power to the sexy woman
Selling her sexy for a heafty fee

Super model with a bag of gold

You flaunt it

I can see your fair market share
I watch your value decline
Swimwear model is a millionare

You seed it

Pornipulation

HALF A WORLD AWAY

A starry night under the bright lights
Who knew I’d find you there
Sweat and song
Then we met before long in the summer air
Hearts racing
Anticipating
Caught in a gaze
Hopes bracing
Disintergrating
Separate ways

Half a world away
I will be waiting
Half a world away
I’m contemplating
Half a world away

We were hanging pretty in the Spanish city when the tour bore through
A face in the crowd
Your silence screamed out loud shook the entire room
Hearts racing
Anticipating
I’m fixed on you
Hopes bracing
Exagerating
It’s nothing new

Half a world away
I will be waiting
Half a world away
I’m contemplating
Half a world away
Anticipating
Half a world away

INVISIBLE

How can I get your attention
Just what do I have to do
I’m a gifted little genius without a clue

Got a guitar in a gig bag
Demo disk in my pocket
Dissiapointment is what im used to
Used to

I’m always getting by
I’m still in back of the line

A thousand miles from somewhere
A song that’s never known
A voice that need a home
I’m invisible

Dying every weekend
Selling my soul again
A pocket full of change
I’m invisible to you all

Just one big break
The right place at the right time
I’ll show you all just what I’m made of

So tired of pushing
Gonna burnout and fade away
You can find me on the edge of the blade

I’m always getting by
I’m still in back of the line

A thousand miles from somewhere
A song that’s never known
A voice that need a home
I’m invisible

Dying on the weekend
Selling my soul again
A pocket full of change
I’m invisible to you all

How can I get your attention
Just what do I have to do
I’m a gifted little fool without a clue

Million miles fom somewhere
My song you’ll never know
A voice without a home
I’m invisible to you all

COMMODORE 64

Atari never had it so good
Still can’t get over that space invasion
Don’t worry Mom I’ll go to bed soon
Just one more level
Just one more level

My Asteroid is a killing me
The Battle Zone is my Missle Command yeah
Oh won’t you come and Defender me
Just one more level
Just one more level

I never wanted to play that station
Throw the Nintendo right out the door
Xbox is such a bore
Leave me alone with my Commodore 64

I Dig Dug my way here
My Pole Position is my big Pitfall yeah
I am the Lode Runner
Galaga
Just one more level
Just one more level

I never wanted to play that station
Throw the Nintendo right out the door
Xbox is such a bore
Leave me alone with my Commodore 64

My floppy drive is spinning
Thousands of bits are feeding
16 color graphics line by line
I verge on obsessive game play
And waste the day away
Gorf, Berzerk, Tempest and Burger Time

I took a trip down to Satan’s Hollow
And spoke the language of computer basic
I played Pong with a Galaxian
Just one more level and I’m almost done

I never wanted to play that station
Throw the Nintendo right out the door
Xbox is such a bore
Leave me alone with my
I still remember that big cassette drive
The gaming system I just adored
8 bit MOS motherboard
Just let me play with my Commodore 64
Commodore 64

Just one more level
Just one more level

MOVING PARTS

Alive and in motion
Aware of this notion
Knowing consciousness
Precise are my movements

Fingers will play your song
Shoulders holding you so strong
In my chest underneath my skin
Deep in my bones down to every limb

Moving parts beat in time
A rhythm track for a lifetime
Moving parts on a grand design
When I see your moving parts they make me smile

Learning infinite
Sensation stimulant
Life sized puppetry
Interaction you and me

I feel it though out my core
Like signal paths on a circuit board
They never sleep and never tire
They keep on breathing this electrical fire

Moving parts beat in time
A rhythm track for a lifetime
Moving parts on a grand design
When I see your moving parts they make me smile

Circulate my life blood
Respirate some Oxygen
Titillate those goose bumps
Eradicate the pathogens
Systems check immunity
Collecting data long term memory
Put your hands on my anatomy
Physical bio chemistry

Moving parts beat in time
A rhythm track for a life time
Moving parts on a grand design
When I see your moving parts they make me
Moving parts come with me
Lead me on involuntary
Moving parts alive inside
When I feel your moving parts make
moving parts make
moving parts make me smile

GONNA DIE TRYING

I’ve walked every inch of highway
Just to be with you
But I know that I'm gonna die
Gonna die trying
Gonna die trying my own way

It’s a long road to nowhere
Many pitfalls along the way
I stare down the face of competition
And brace myself for an impossible mission

I wont be taken down lightly
Cuz I've come a long way
But I know that I'm gonna die
Gonna die trying
Gonna die trying any day

All the tools that help me bleed
It just doesn’t get easier
I don’t want your personal opinion
Everybody thinks that they’re entitled to

I’ve walked every inch of highway
Just to be with you
But I know that I'm gonna die
Gonna die trying
Gonna die trying my own way

Business as usual
Liars, wannabe’s and thiefs
It’s an ongoing struggle
If you stick to your beliefs

Plastic selfish faces all around me
It’s not what you do it’s who you know
I can’t make it on my own

Can you help me
Or just walk on by
There’s gotta be a rainbow at the end of the storm
Conflicted with the struggle of a personal war

I wont be taken down lightly
Cuz I've come a long way
But I know that I'm gonna die
Gonna die trying
Gonna die trying everyday
Yeah
I’ve walked every inch of highway
Just to be with you
But I know that I'm gonna die
Gonna die trying
Gonna die trying my own way

Gonna die d-d-die t-t-t-trying
Aaahh hoo

FUEL TO THE FIRE

The demon seen in which you need to breed
Is feeding on your negativity
Your grapevine’s talking and it needs to die
Needs to die
Mispoken half truths are another lie

Karma follows those who hate
Crushing you like an earthquake

Just watch your back when adding fuel to the fire
I’m gonna watch you burn
Fuel to the fire
Burn
Fuel to the fire
You’re gonna get your turn
Fuel to the fire
Burn

This stirring rumor has no alibi
You couldn’t even look me in the eye
A jealous skeptic what you seem to be
Seems to me
You hypocrite you’re always so naïve

Liars always fear the truth
The innocent are the ones that bruise

Can’t you tell I’m adding fuel to the fire
I’m gonna watch you burn
Fuel to the fire
Burn
Fuel to the fire
Another lesson learned
Fuel to the fire
Burn

This chatter is hearsay
The news is a hoax
A slanderous whisper on which people choke
The lowdown in buzzing
The gossip is talk
But the foundation’s splitting on which you walk

You’ve bit off more than even you can chew
The reprocussion’s right in front of you
So next time when you feel the urge and the itch
Remember payback’s more than just a bitch

When I have my darkest day
Fate will give you Hell to pay

Just watch your back you’re adding fuel to the fire
I’m gonna watch you burn
Fuel to the fire
Burn
Fuel to the fire
You’re gonna get your turn
Fuel to the fire
Burn

Fuel to the fire
I’m gonna watch you burn
Fuel to the fire
Burn
Fuel to the fire
Another lesson learned
Fuel to the fire
Burn
