Who the hell are you? You're my best friend-of-a-friend I find you so disgusting But I didn't always feel the way (and that's okay) Did you think you had enough of that old life? Remember that? That place where we first met? I woke up from a deep sleep at 80 miles an hour And there you were Already disagreeing with yourself We found it charming Curiosity became intrigue Which then turned into laughter And then awe... A solid week of learning all your riddles And we couldn't help but beg you to ask them again But I was horrified by the void I didn't realize existed Until you filled it without asking That's your gift - And what a gift! But remember that it's meant for Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you It's our enlightenment Not your dream - not pleasing yourself Or was I wrong? It didn't make much difference for some years Until I saw your face again I couldn't believe how much you changed What happened to you, man? Get a grip! It so embarrassing what you do... dressed like that... How dare you change! How dare you charm me and then change! Your job was to inspire me Not make me sympathize with you! I don't care! I DON'T CARE! But now we're in the open... I gotta say other people may Like you better this way That's all well and good But we know both you should Give it a rest sometime... Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you...

GWB 02:57
I'm on the right track to see the temples of gray All killing the sky - it's pulling me back I can't help but think I made a mistake But then I come home again Sailing down green avenues All these people breathing Can't see what they're seeing I'm plastered and petrified - I got a big tent The moon roof reveals the stars up above I'm hearing them stir in bushes nearby And feel like they're family Shiver cold but I'm at home All these people breathing Their sweat is revealing

Gray Area 01:14
It was an honor getting to meet Jim World renowned god of database design Since I deal daily with trillions of numbers He helped us out from time to time A few days after the last time I saw him I turned on the news - shocked to see his face He sailed on the bay to scatter his mother's ashes Then he and his boat vanished without a trace A month of valiant searching had to end He was never ever seen again...

Pipe 02:48
When I die Don't bury me Or cremate me Chop me up And stuff me down a one inch pipe.

Drips 02:18
Keep it inside Don't let on you're worried or people will eat you alive Don't let us know The lame circumstance or your weakness will show All that you have and all that you feel Nobody listens if words are too real So paste on a smile and wipe off that brow The moment is now Get yourself in shape somehow Open your eyes And put down that napkin it's obvious that you just cried We understand But we're simply too busy to play out this hand Of all that you have and all that you feel Nobody listens if words are too real So paste on a smile and wipe off that brow The moment is now Get yourself in shape somehow Somehow...

Doom Broom 00:52
Look into my eyes with your dustbin lies Sweep sweep do the creepy creep deep floor jive J-j-j-j-jam ma'am your logic doesn't stand Baby baby I'm your main mountain man Doom broom - Hit me with your sticky sticky stick Doom broom Doom broom - Push me in a pile super quick Doom broom Disco! Dig into my brain with your straw straw veins Straw straw veins str-str-str-str-straw mama Do the twist turn with the carpet burn Don't you ever ever ever learn like your uncle Vern Doom broom...

I get some shelter and food And reminder every day that Nobody wants me I have no concept of death But one thing's very clear That nobody wants me Big monkeys keep me here They seem so proud of themselves But nobody wants me Nobody wants me Nobody wants me Nobody wants me...

The Waxman 02:45
Angels in bright colors Virgins stand there smothered Me all alone under bright light in a big throne Demons in deep darkness Can't see through the carcass I made you all and you're stuck there in the main hall Pose! Pose! Dammit pose! (and you can't blink.. and you can't blink..)

I don't like your head Your attitude Absolutes in particular I don't wanna know Your thesis code Big balloon that's full of hot air Oh don't make me No don't make me No don't make me No don't make... Angels in the sky They're looking down Shoulder shrug 'cuz you're secular Oh don't get me wrong I hate the church Pedophiles all full of hot air Oh don't make me No don't make me No don't make me No! Don't!

Feels like I'm buried alive Strange because I just arrived Or have I been here before? At least I have my weird friends Who see things through a bright lens They get to leave - I sleep on the floor Working with you is like 10 days I lost in Berlin Waiting until I could fly Hoping for change is like 10 days I lost in Berlin Knew you're too smart not to lie I see you acting like a movie star In your two dollar clothes Why'd you tell me to eat this crap (Scharf - ohne Tomaten) The indigestion throes… (Mit Senf und Zwiebeln) Working with you is like 10 days I lost in Berlin Hoping for change is like 10 days I lost in Berlin Running the clock is like 10 days I lost in Berlin Don't bother - you'll never die… Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln...

Who are all your crazy friends? Don't recognize them or their clothes Did they come up from the city south? Why does that one have a bloody nose? I'll ask nice - saying please Grab your coats - you should leave We don't appreciate them flailing about Or dry humping each other on the floor They might knock something over you know Allow me to show you the door It was nice before y'all came Now it's all ruined...
