  • Lyrics: Verse: This is not a practice, this is not a test, you cannot unknow, and you cannot erase it. Ring around the rosy, pockets full of lead. A penny for your thoughts, and a bullet for your head. Pre-chorus: Know this machine is a sick one, it'll slit your throat when you close your eyes. Chorus: Settle down, settle down. No talking on the boulevard. Quiet now, quiet now. Come over to the check out line. Verse: Happiness is grateful, gratefulness is free. Gluttony is to wicked what wicked is to greedy. Poor man, poor man, everybody prays, and if you don't know how, you better find a way, becauseā€¦ Pre-chorus: This disease will not kill you, it will make you want to hurt yourself. Chorus: So settle down, settle down. No dreaming in the shopping mall. Turn around, turn around. They're watching from the candy store. Quiet now, quiet now, no dreaming of a better time. You'll come around, come around, come over to the checkout line. Bridge: Turn around. You can't unknow what you think that you know. You can't unsee what you seem to believe you believe. Verse: This is not a practice, this is not a test. Everybody knows, but nobody resists. Olly olly all-come free. Olly olly ole. Magnets for your teeth. A wire for your jaw. Chorus: Settle down, settle down. No dancing on the boulevard. Turn around, turn around. They're watching from the candy store. Quiet now, quiet now. No searching for a holy sign. Just come around, come around, come over to the checkout line, come over to the checkout line

Its familiar faces and characters you know you have seen but who don't necessarily have a name. As the music in Eden washes over you, Craig's emotion packed delivery is as desperate as it is cathartic. No need for expensive psychotherapy here; ...
