FLYENTOLOGY Lyrics

by El-p

Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day

Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say

I know I haven't been walkin' a humble path
I know I cursed at your name and then laughed
And though I found it inane to bend calf
The servitude of grovelin' framed as pained task

I gotta figure it, can't hurt to ask
Suspension of disbelief in uniquely freak flash
Admission of the faithfully shaken, now trapped
30 thousand and droppin', it's on and poppin' at last

Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day

No, there are no atheists in the foxholes
No, there's no intellect in the air
No, there are no scientists on the way down
Just a workin' example of faith vs physics

No, there are no atheists in the foxholes
No, there is no intellect in the air
No, there are no scientists on the way down
Just a workin' example of faith vs physics

Flyentology
Everybody get your ticket today
Flyentology
Welcome aboard, sir, right this way

Flyentology, flyen-flyentology
Our bible is in your seat back pocket
Tuck your head between your legs, now pray

I adore you the same way that the others always adored you
Emergency, humility, just break glass
I implore with no knowledge of dogma to conform to
I know I don't deserve it but save my ass

And if I'm goin' down, let me do it in first class
The paganistic prayer of a heathen with wild past
Please forgive my bastardized style dash
And anoint me with salvation in form of non-crash

I wanna live so bad
All my life I've been so arrogant
This is the vessel of my wakenin'
Please Father, put Your hand out, carry it

I wanna live so bad
All my life, I've been so arrogant
This is the vessel of my wakenin'
Goddamn it, put Your hand out, carry it

No, there are no atheists in the foxholes
No, there's no intellect in the air
No, there are no scientists on the way down
Just a workin' example of faith vs physics

No, there are no atheists in the foxholes
No, there's no intellect in the air
No, there are no scientists on the way down
Just a workin' example of faith vs physics

This is, this is flyentology
Please God, show me how to worship
Flyentology, flyentology

Please God, show me how to worship
Flyentology
Please God, show me how to worship
Flyentology

Please God, show me how to worship
Flyentology
Please God, show me how to worship
Flyentology

Please God, show me how to worship
Flyentology

Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day

Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega

Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
