Well they killed the malevolent colonel

I'll never see Atlantis again

They shipped me back to the front

Back to being just a grunt

My karma done got wrecked

New tattoo on my neck

They keep their eye on me

'Cause I seen what could be

I got to get back there

I got to get back there

Out of this karma wrecker

While in Atlantis I found an ancient record

It was made of vinyl Dawn she sat me down

It was named after an early gun

But the music was free and fun

She burned a sacred plant

She let the record chant

The band was clearly free

The band was clearly free

In the corner laughed a man in white

He was glowing like a tracer light

He ain't no karma wrecker

He said "Hello, son, my name just call me Elvis

Dawn she gave my whole life back to me"

Then Dawn began to sing

More beautiful than anything

I could see the notes she sung

As if it were from my tongue

I could taste her warming breath

She made me not fear death\

She made me feel alright

She said "You're a shining light

You ain't no Karma Wrecker."

In a trance I made it to the front lines

Dawn and Elvis met with Caesar and Temujin

I think I may have cried

My heart grew dead inside

The stink of millions dead

The polar caps froze red

Time to just survive

Make it out alive

To Atlantis where I believe

To Atlantis where I believe

There ain't no karma wrecker

I don't know

Dave talks to John Lennon.

"Atlantis" is finally addressed, been talking about it for a year and a third.

Tumbleweeds shout out around a minute 30.

"From here on out...we get bonkers with the production."

The nuance of applying building terms to recording production be addressed. 

On analog we would "perform" the mix. Not so no more - good and bad (as precedent for the use of a dash I site Kerouac's DHARMA BUMS). "Educated Man" on Circle 9's THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES is a good example.

*Shout out to THE DREAD PIRATE DIABLO the legendary Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadoo Joey G Gallagher.*

The fellas talk about the integration of Shakespearean soliloquies into psychedelic punk rock opera hillbilly stuff. 

HANK III, bitches!

Got a side business booming

Found the guy that makes the fucking drugs

I know him as the malevolent colonel

The one who coddles all us fucking thugs

Got my buddies let me cruise right through the missiles

Guess in other words they're called the enemy

Give 'em drugs I give 'em cash and other goodies

And all the largesse coming back to me get down

Gotta keep this transport moving

Can't believe my motherfucking eyes

A secret entrance through the glass desert

And an underworld that's better than surprise

Got plants and art and poetry and women

And everybody's coming up to me

Got to thank the malevolent colonel

For everything now that I fucking see get down

They tell me that this place is called Atlantis

The throbbing people mingle sing and fuck

How'd this fucking place be kept a secret

Eventually it's got to die to luck

The mayor is a fucking sexy lady

She keeps it so it's never up and gone

I need to meet the woman with the power

I hear her name is sunshine lit at Dawn get down

Every time I pull into Atlantis

Where the scientists make robot hookers purr

I get out of the transport and I rare back

'Cause I'm pushing on my horse down through the spurs

It's nirvana to the bohos and the artists

Singing songs and dancing every single night

Only law is that there is no re-religion

'Cause the intellectuals don't feel it's right

Get down

Seven months in the shit

Turns out warring is legit

Killed as many as I lost

What a cost

It's funny how I love my gun

It's funny how they never run\

It's funny that I never sleep

Never eat

It's funny how they never beg

It's funny how they get new legs

It's funny how the night is day

Fades away

The roar of the drunken gods

The worst of the lightening rods

The drunken gods choose not to sip

Let her rip
