Strange ways coming today
I put a dollar in my pocket 
And I threw it away
Been a long time
 Since a federal dime
Made a jukebox sound
Like a mirror in my mind
To comb my worries 
Fix my thoughts  Throw my hopes 
Like a juggernaut walks
Now let-down souls 
Can't feel no rhythm  Sorry entertainers
Like aerobics victims
 Hybrid people
 Light a wooded matchstick
 Toxic fumes from the
 Burning plastic
 Beats are broken  Bones are spastic  Robots talkin'
With a southern accent
 Voodoo curses
 Bible tongues
 Voices comin'
From the mangled lungs
Give me some grit
Some get-down shit
Don't need a good reason 
To let anything rip

Radio's cold
Soul is infected 
One by one
I'll knock you out
God is alone  Hardware defective
One by one
I'll knock you out

Mr. Microphone making
All the damage felt
Like a laser manifesto
Make a mannequin melt
There's people phonin' in
Like it's unlimited minutes
 Going through the motions 
Just to say that they did it
Treadmill's running  Underneath their feet
So they feel like they're going somewhere
But they're not
So let's put boots 
On the warehouse floor
Comin' to you
Like a rope on a chain store
 Throwing equipment
From a moving van
Grab a microphone 
Like a utility man
Now fix the beat
Now break the rest
Make a kick drum sound 
Like an S.O.S.
Get a tow-truck
 Cause it's after dark
And the dance floor's full
But everybody's double-parked!

Cell phone's dead
Lost in the desert 
One by one
I'll knock you out
Eye of the sun
Is out of its socket 
One by one
I'll knock you out
One by one

This jam is real, that's right 

Eye of the sun
Eye of the sun
Eye of the sun
