[chorus: ]
if you're ready for the salad bar, let us know
every victory's initially an obstacle
[?]within every fold, having meant to feed
what's a beneficial energy to be released[?]

multivitamin, full canteen
compass, typical boyscout routine
better earn no merit badges after completing a task
silently seated i'm striking flint against steel
turning sparks into flames into hand-cooked meals

i get about 5 hours sleep
then i'm on my feet again
[?]meeting and needing[?] natural survivalist tips
but that is not my trip
the rapture came and went, leaving me here in the dust
i didn't make the cut, my dreams were not polluted enough

on the day his mighty hand descended
to rescue his believers
i became the proud owner of thousands of abandoned golden retrievers
and we would load them onto flat-bed ford's
drive around trading them for precious metals and circuit boards
but when the new-age denominations acquired psychic weapons
i wandered off the grid in fear of reprogramming sessions

during the conflict
the grounded satellite was my saving grace - i'm laser light!
probing the smoky mountains
hoping to happen upon this well-equipped protagonist wearing a davy crockett hat

chalked-full of pocket-sized dismantling tools
to the survivors with kids in need of disciplinarian rules
give 'em crew-cuts and a few bucks
and atop their heads
put a crown of braided blood red meat
to keep them trackable and well fed

[chorus]

come one come all
be them man or beast
they'll end up another skull
on the mantelpiece

come one come all
be them man or beast
they'll end up another skull
on the mantelpiece
