Speed lab, speed lab
On the edge of an artichoke farm
We work through harm
Tweaked and well paid
We forgave
What the chemicals did
To our hands, lungs and face
Clearly makring our fall from grace
Our fall form grace

Speed lab, speed lab
Sun sang through eucalyptus,
We sang along
I met her there,
Sweating out the San Francisco run
Every hotel on the five
Was our very own pleasure dive
Our own pleasure dive

Speed lab
Giveth and taketh away
The love, tender loving, money, money spending
Was before the fire, the DEA.
Those who survived the fire fled alone
I know that God hates alchemical work
I love him lonely, but in the end
What else to do but begin again
To do but begin again

    General CommentMan, of all things, this is the song that convinced me beyond all shadow of a doubt that MK Ultra rocked, hard. Listen to the subtleties in the bass and drum work. Lyrically speaking, I wish there were more here. It seems like such a cool narrative, but it could be much more if it were less about the speed lab and more about the romanticism of the whole thing. Actually, in reading that last verse again, I take it back. JV, I apologize. AWESOME.
