I can't explain my life today The beats are quite erratic Since that person spoke to me that way It really was traumatic Now my head is like a radio That picks up only static I say: no no no no no no no no The twitches are distracting And the dizzy spells sporadic So I cannot help to think these things Are probably symptomatic Of a new kind of condition That is idiosyncratic I say: no no no no no no no no I go to see my doctor But the bastard's so dogmatic He prescribes the same things every time He runs on automatic Plus I'll never trust his judgement Since he liked "The Life Aquatic" I say: no no no no no no no no Now I find that sounds are blinding And some words are aromatic And I suddenly black out And wake up hiding in my attic But there is a real solution And the thought makes me ecstatic I'll say: no no no no no no no no No no no no no no no no!
Blind Date 01:14
I don't mind the food on your breath The grease on your fingers The stuff in your teeth I don't mind the things that you say Your eyes look away I think that's... okay... I can love you...
Dirndl 02:18
I have this unframed painting - the artist was confused A dozen wilted matchbooks that I'll never use A box of unpaid tickets I got in other states And letters from old friends that I now kinda hate So long to all the things that manifest in my reality So long to clutter rotting in my core Let's push it to the curb and pray For divine luck and sympathy I hope I don't need this stuff anymore A milkcrate full of comic books - no these aren't mine A former lazy resident left these behind A pile of screwdrivers and yep no phillips heads Here's a high school textbook that I never read So long...
Three Cows 01:11
Tangry 01:04
Their Turf 02:23
All the righteous feeling pity for the critters in their bin They're the furthest from the city Still they capture life within The land is an ocean - no lifeboat The sand is in motion and I can't float All the crickets on the carpet and spiders in the sink They're so honest they can't help it They act and never think Your words are like daggers on my throat My soul stands and staggers - the scapegoat And I'll sail towards the horizon a lifetime's miles away You can't withstand the bright sun So in the hive you'll stay
Misanthrope 00:47
I made a call - don't expect an answer I sent e-mail - did it ever get through? I spent a week making a shitty press-pack Just so I could play your lame venue Well never mind It's kinda late I'm way too tired I'm 38!
There's a notion I'm uncool - that's a fat lie Time for you to go to school and to learn why I'm all the rage And your little world's my stage There's a motion to dismiss - that's a hate crime 'Cuz here's an ass ripe for your kiss - take your sweet time!
How's the world you made up? Is it all you ever thought? Do people even live there? You shouldn't count the ones you caught And don't believe that all the things you do Are honest, worthy, true That's quite a pair: your ego and you Will you ever grow up Or rely on endless charm? Reality is painful Soon it will grab your arm And pull your hair and punch you in the face With elegance and grace And maybe then you'll join the human race
