Profile Of A New Elite (M. Girio) Well boys it's not unlike your father to be hateful So eat up because it's not polite to be ungrateful DEEP UNDER EVERY HOME THERE'S BURIED A SECRET DADDY'S DIGGING THEM OUT SHOULD THEY THINK TO KEEP IT EVERY MEMBER OF EVERY FAMILY IS GUILTY OH, GUILTY IT'S A GUILT THAT IS NOT ALLOWED Let no stone be un-turned, no petty vice unraveled And if it's really bad, we'll crush it with the gavel DEEP UNDER EVERY HOME THERE'S BURIED A SECRET DADDY'S DIGGING THEM OUT SHOULD THEY THINK TO KEEP IT EVERY MEMBER OF EVERY FAMILY IS GUILTY OH, GUILTY IT'S A GUILT THAT IS NOT ALLOWED Stiff joints between the bones when they fall from the closet Marrow dries to the joints like crusty bits of gossip Well boys it's not unlike your father to be hateful So eat up because the truth is more than just a plateful DEEP UNDER EVERY HOME THERE'S BURIED A SECRET DADDY'S DIGGING THEM OUT SHOULD THEY THINK TO KEEP IT EVERY MEMBER OF EVERY FAMILY IS GUILTY OH, GUILTY IT'S A GUILT THAT IS NOT ALLOWED

Speaking For The Skeptics (M. Girio) Revealed as just a hoax Or a table tilt with magic tricks While poorly lit by candlesticks And although we're holding hands There's nothing to substantiate They're using wires to levitate I have had enough J.B. RHINE, OR MIRABELLI WELL, THEY MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE TIME OR THE LOVE THAT I'M SENDING YOU BUT THEN YOU WON'T READ MY MIND WHAT'S THE WORD THAT I'M SEARCHING FOR WHEN IT'S YOU I WANT TO FIND TRYING TO MAKE THAT CONNECTION BUT YOU'RE ALWAYS ON THE LINE I told you how I feel But you will never listen to me Not even telepathically I'm skeptical at heart There is reason to speculate When I'm put on hold and I have to wait I have had enough J.B. RHINE, OR MIRABELLI WELL, THEY MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE TIME OR THE LOVE THAT I'M SENDING YOU BUT THEN YOU WON'T READ MY MIND WHAT'S THE WORD THAT I'M SEARCHING FOR WHEN IT'S YOU I WANT TO FIND TRYING TO MAKE THAT CONNECTION BUT YOU'RE ALWAYS ON THE LINE The medium is love The message is extrasensory Because you won't even look at me Clairvoyance has its charm, you said So does telekinesis, my dear Use it to let me know you're here I have had enough J.B. RHINE, OR MIRABELLI WELL, THEY MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE TIME OR THE LOVE THAT I'M SENDING YOU BUT THEN YOU WON'T READ MY MIND WHAT'S THE WORD THAT I'M SEARCHING FOR WHEN IT'S YOU I WANT TO FIND TRYING TO MAKE THAT CONNECTION BUT YOU'RE ALWAYS ON THE LINE
