Track Name: 4.1 Jocular Vein [Bob The Jester Part 2]
Movement # 1
D Chromatic 12-Tone (D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C#, D) - Allegro / Vivace (137 bpm)

Step right up folks, step right up and welcome to the amazing Sulphuric Bros. Circus.
We’ve got something for everyone but take heed and stay away from the clown.

Movement # 2
D Chromatic 12-Tone (D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C#, D) - Allegro / Vivace (137 bpm)

Pay attention and see for yourself the horrors of the sideshow. A daring display of life’s obscenities.
Parents beware, your kiddies will never be the same again, nor you! HA HA HA!!!

Come see creatures of an origin that of which is unfathomable;
The man with 2 necks but only 1 head, The man who’s just a head, first view our petting zoo.

Moo, woof woof, baa baa! Moo, woof woof, baa, meow! HA HA HA!!!

Stitched up furry freaks, Teeth where they should not be, Eyes where they can’t see, Unnecessary limbs.
The human glue stick, The grown up toddler, The child with grey hair, How was the petting zoo?

Moo, woof woof, baa baa! Moo, woof woof, baa, meow!

Movement # 3
D Chromatic 12-Tone (D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C#, D) - Prestissimo (180 bpm)

“Oh no it’s Bob! He’s heading our way, we should have never left the petting zoo! No, do not make eye contact
with him. Oh it’s too late, you’re dead. He’s finished with the elephant dung and he’s already here!!!”

HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I USED TO BE THE JANITOR BUT NOW I JUST MAKE A MESS.
HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I REALLY LIKE BRIGHT COLOURS LIKE THAT DEEP BLOOD RED OF YOUR INSIDES.
HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I GO AROUND POPPING BALLOONS AND POPPING SHOULDERS OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS.
HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I’M ALWAYS THE LIFE OF THE PARTY AFTER I KILL EVERYONE.

Maniacal and So Excitable, A Radical Behaving Comical, Tyrannical and Diabolical, Fanatical and So Irrational.

HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I’M GREAT AT JUGGLING CHAINSAWS AND SAWING YOUR JUGULAR VEIN.
HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I LIKE TELLING FUNNY STORIES ABOUT HOW YOU’RE GOING TO DIE.
HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I CAN SWALLOW SWORDS WITH EASE BUT I’D RATHER STAB YOUR EYE.
HI, I’M BOB THE JESTER. I WEAR VERY BIG NOVELTY SHOES THAT I’LL USE FOR KICKING YOUR TEETH OUT.

Maniacal and So Excitable, A Radical Behaving Comical, Tyrannical and Diabolical, Fanatical and So Irrational.

Track Name: 4.2 Konstancy
Movement # 1
G Minor + b 2nd, 5th, 7th (G, Ab, A, Bb, C, Db, D, F, Gb, G#) - Prestissimo (202 bpm)

Defeatist, you wear your disguise in plain view. The best of me is the worst of you.
Neural pathways are designated to conclude you’ve always had the power, the drive to resume.
Sedate your opinion, we’re designed to bleed. It’s no lie to say existence is what is killing me.
Pushing your luck and tempting fate. What happens when you’re out of time? Nothing ‘cause time is fake!

This face, this soul, just let it happen. Your grace failed to develop constancy.
Seas of your mind as calm as nature. Your sober and sombre anxiety.

Original or plagiarised? My confidence is shattered and all from within. Uncertainty.
No black or white, just a million different hues, not even grey only shades of faded dreams?

This face, this soul, just let it happen. Your grace failed to develop constancy.
Seas of your mind as calm as nature. Your sober and sombre anxiety.

Movement # 2
G Minor + b 2nd, 5th, 7th (G, Ab, A, Bb, C, Db, D, F, Gb, G#) - Prestissimo (202 bpm)

Pushing and throwing and tearing it all to bits! Tear it all to bits!

Movement # 3
G Minor + b 2nd, 5th, 7th (G, Ab, A, Bb, C, Db, D, F, Gb, G#) - Prestissimo (202 bpm)

A null parody, momentum shifting, skewed. Tracing totality, the inevitable ensues.
With conscience falling on deaf ears and eyes, there’s no care for what’s left consideration dies!

This face, this soul, just let it happen. Your grace failed to develop constancy.
Seas of your mind as calm as nature. Your sober and sombre anxiety.

Movement # 4
G Minor + b 2nd, 5th, 7th (G, Ab, A, Bb, C, Db, D, F, Gb, G#) - Prestissimo (202 bpm)

Pushing and throwing and tearing it all to bits!
Track Name: 4.3 Into The Night
Movement # 1
E Raga Suddha Simantini + b 3rd & 5th (E, F, Gb, G, A, Bb, B, C, E) - Andante (85 bpm)

Into the night…

Movement # 2
E Raga Suddha Simantini + b 3rd & 5th (E, F, Gb, G, A, Bb, B, C, E) - Andante (85 bpm)

I want you to, to believe that, that I’ve seen it, seen my own end,
I could feel it; I saw black, then saw more.
We were made for so much suffering, so much treachery, what could time restore?
To never see another anything, to never see any of you anymore.

As I move forward into the night, far away from daylight and not a second too soon, less than a second with you.
As I move forward into the night, far away from daylight and not a second too soon.

I don’t mean to, to alarm you, you’re the universe, you’re what Death fears,
Most lost contact, I resumed and I’m judged daily.
Feel new senses; believe that they’re true; I’ll excuse myself from this narrow view.
Feed my mind, deep I’ll excise what this taught me to, still keeps me inside you.

As I move forward into the night, far away from daylight and not a second too soon, less than a second with you.
As I move forward into the night, far away from daylight and not a second too soon.
Track Name: 4.4 Wrathful Porcines
Movement # 1
E Harmonic Minor + ≠ 2nd, 5th & 7th (E, F#, Gd, G, A, B, Cd, C, D#, Ed, E) - Andante (90 bpm)

Lies turn to fear, fear becomes anger,
Anger to hatred, hatred leading to war!

But truth builds up trust, trust becomes joy,
Joy is followed by love, love breeds peace between all!

Are you blinded by light or do you see in the dark?
There’s no ugly truths, there’s no pretty lies!

Movement # 2
E Harmonic Minor + ≠ 2nd, 5th & 7th (E, F#, Gd, G, A, B, Cd, C, D#, Ed, E) - Allegro / Vivace (135 bpm)

So much hatred, so many lies.

Indoctrinated, sexist, racist, spiteful, hateful,
Homophobic ignoramus, spreading prejudice and bigotry.
Please open up your eyes to lies masquerading as truth,
Hate masquerading as love and war disguised as peace.

So much hatred and so many lies, so much hate and lies!
(Hatred was the foundation, You were too young to realise,
They planted an idea, inside your mind).

So much hatred, so many lies.

Failing to unify humanity with paranormal, supernatural,
Non-existent, falsified and imaginary hope.
Similarities between us more than differences,
We should play a game of chess instead of airing any grievances.

So much hatred and so many lies, so much hate and lies!
(Hatred was the foundation, You were too young to realise,
They planted an idea, inside your mind).

Movement # 3
E Harmonic Minor + ≠ 2nd, 5th & 7th (E, F#, Gd, G, A, B, Cd, C, D#, Ed, E) - Prestissimo (180 bpm)

*Instrumental*
Track Name: 4.5 Don't Cry
Movement # 1
B Natural Minor (B, C#, D, E, F#, G, A, B - Moderato (112 bpm)

Don’t cry, you’ll need those tears to survive, as waters scare, dams are polluted.
Distillation of your own urine or mine, the only other plausible solution. Don’t cry!

…And the rise of our city is the fall of our city.
How can we feel so lonely when surrounded by traffic?
Would we kill for that place where we could be alone but not alone?

Don’t panic, you might as well build underground, since your head’s already buried in the sand.
I commend you, at least your heads not up your arse. I don’t care how you sleep but how do you breathe at night?

…And the rise of our city…

No view of the sea could lift this feeling. Punishing me, cerebral.
As green turns to grey and nature decays, steam from my ears, blood from my nostrils!

…And the rise of our city…

Movement # 2
B Natural Minor (B, C#, D, E, F#, G, A, B - Moderato (112 bpm)

Views from high towers see habitats dying as bulldozers scout for more land.
Not all resources are renewable so why can’t we have thought for our future.

Scorch the Earth, scorch this windswept wasteland then wash it all away until nothing is left.

Views from high towers…

A barren void, a paradise of nullified life, of sterilised and rusted hope, the elements of chaos.

Views from high towers…
How can we go back to where we came from when it only exists in our past?

Amalgamation of cultures is fine but assimilation is not integration.

Movement # 3
B Natural Minor (B, C#, D, E, F#, G, A, B - Moderato (112 bpm)

…And the rise of our…
Track Name: 4.6 Socrates
Movement # 1
Maqam Higaz-Kar On F# (F#, G, A≠, B, C#, D, E≠, F#) - Prestissimo (194 bpm)

Η τρέλα των σοφών είναι η σοφία του ανόητοι άνδρες, είναι ένα και το αυτό. Βλέπετε, σοφοί δεν γνωρίζουν
ότι είναι σοφός επειδή σοφούς νομίζουν ότι είναι ανόητοι. Το αντίστροφο είναι επίσης αλήθεια ως ανόητοι
άνδρες δεν νομίζω ότι είναι ανόητοι, διότι ανόητοι άνδρες ξέρουν ότι είναι σοφός. Αν υπάρχει ένας γρήγορος
τρόπος για να συνοψίσουμε αυτό θα ήταν ότι σοφούς και ανόητους σκέφτονται οι άντρες δεν κάνουν.

(The folly of wise-men is the wisdom of foolish-men, they are one and the same. You see, wise-men do not know
they are wise because wise-men think they are fools. The reverse of this is also true as foolish-men do not think they
are fools because foolish-men know they are wise. If there is a quick way to summarise this it would be that wisemen
think and foolish-men do not)

Movement # 2
Maqam Higaz-Kar On F# (F#, G, A≠, B, C#, D, E≠, F#) - Prestissimo (194 bpm)

Homines sapientes putant et stulti scient. (Wise-men think and fools know)

Homines sapientes non scient sapientes sunt, (Wise-men do not know they are wise)
et Homines stulti non putant stulti sunt, (Foolish-men do not think they are fools)

Quia homines sapientes putant et stulti scient. (Because wise-men think and fools know)

Homines sapientes putant stulti sunt, (Wise-men do think they are fools)
et Homines stulti scient sapientes sunt, (Foolish-men know they are wise)

Quia homines sapientes putant et stulti scient. (Because wise-men think and fools know)

Movement # 3
Maqam Higaz-Kar On F# (F#, G, A≠, B, C#, D, E≠, F#) - Presto (168 bpm)

I don’t think you understand, I don’t think you understand,
It’s been two and a half thousand years, Still I don’t think that you understand,

Wisdom ignored, true blasphemy, seeking knowledge, divinity,
Olympus bliss, does not exist, impiety, claimed heretic,
Burnt libraries, tomfoolery, beheaded men, gain martyrdom,
Entrails of priests, choking the kings, hemlock beverage, I’ll drink to this.

Movement # 4
Maqam Higaz-Kar On F# (F#, G, A≠, B, C#, D, E≠, F#) - Presto (168 bpm)

Caveat homines stulti. (Beware of fools)
Track Name: 4.7 You Animal
Movement # 1
A Phrygian Dominant (A, Bb, C#, D, E, F, G, A - Prestissimo (230 bpm)

With your ways and your views entitlement, it turns your screws,
With your ego and your conscience should not be clean, so fine by me.
Up and up you go it seems you’ve got it made. You’ve had such luck don’t you ever stop winning? (You animal)

This pest lives just to turn days grey, embarrassment, you lead the way,
With stone-age strength and rocks in head, slow to receive, quick to believe.
You’ve done that too, gold medal, a ribbon blue. Where is your luck now? (You animal)

Well look at you, our self-proclaimed alpha. A congratulations is in order, your hunting skills will feed us tonight.
But is foraging nuts and berries really hunting and does stealing from the supermarket count,
And did you just make a mess in aisle 5?

Movement # 2
A Chromatic Phrygian (A, Bb, C, D, E, F, G, A - Moderato / Allegro (115 bpm)

You animal, you animal.
You know your looks somehow make you divine, We think that you’re just a female canine (bitch),
You know you lead because of your bloodline, We think that you’re just another ovine (sheep).
You, ...hey you, ...yes you, ...oh you suck!

You animal, you animal.
You know that you’re everyone’s Valentine, We think that you should go wallow with swine (pig),
You know you’re smart like Albert Einstein, We think that you always act asinine (mule).
You, ...hey you, ...yes you, ...oh you suck!

Movement # 3
A Chromatic Phrygian (A, Bb, C, D, E, F, G, A - Moderato / Allegro (115 bpm)

So once again you drag us to the bottom but watch us float back up.
The anchors tied to your leg now (forgotten) you are the epitome of tough luck.
Captain of a sinking rowboat. Leader of a pack of playing cards.
A vow to never surrender your white flag. Keep telling yourself their laughing with you, not at you.

Movement # 4
A Phrygian Dominant (A, Bb, C#, D, E, F, G, A - Moderato / Allegro (115 bpm)

*Instrumental*

Movement # 5
A Chromatic Phrygian (A, Bb, C, D, E, F, G, A - Moderato / Allegro (115 bpm)

You animal, you animal.
