Track Name: Jerry the hair
Jerry the hair
Old man on the farm
Lost his teeth in ‘Nam
Jerry’s hangin’ on
Like gingivitis in the gums
I hear ‘em now
Jerry’s cow
is mooing in the road
Jerry swerved
And made the curve
But, hit the cow he owned

Overcome by fear
He raced stepside to the house
Gathered two cats
Snakes named Jakes
And Filo, his pet mouse
Jerry’s not a rock star
Or a race car drivin’ man
Jerry the hair’s
The old man
Just doin’ what he can

Stop.

Boogie woogie
Jerry, motherfucker
You’re the man
A poor man born in Ulna
Jerry’s just a fightin’ man
Shit fire on the front door
Jerry takes it all in hand
No teenage youthquake hooligan
Would make it off his land

Jerry shot to kill that night
But, it blew up in his hand
Jerry picked his fingers up
From the midnight sand
Jerry the hair
Old man on the farm
Drank until the dawn
Jerry thread the needle, sewed
And then he would go on
Track Name: Tragic Monk sat
Don’t think it drives me crazy
On the edge of nowhere
I hear the sound of music in my ears
I hear you breathin’ under me
I hear you breathin’ under me

Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monk hit the road
Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monkey hit the road

Turnin’ dough below the table
With their stone face
Cain the richest man alive
Who needs to be so fat?

Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monk hit the road
Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monkey hit the road

I thought I saw you wanderin’
I thought I saw you come my way
Psycho paranoid head boy
I’ll never let you go
No

Tragic Monk hit the road
Tragic Monk hit the road
Tragic Monk hit the road

Tragic Monk
Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monk
Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monk
Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monk
Tragic Monk sat
Tragic Monk sat under me
Track Name: Cows
Welcome to the man
Supply upon demand
Kiss the hand that feeds you
And keeps you for the veal
Oh yeah

Things just aren’t as neat now
Since they took the sun away
Every day cholesterol
Every night I scrape the walls
Yeah

Peace and love and sex and sex
And look, I’m masturbatin’
With a chainsaw

Welcome to the man
Steppin’ on your mom
I hear he’s got a meat-on
For the cows that don’t belong
Yeah, yeah
Track Name: Electron
Closer numb
The whole church blues
You see men on the booze
Come next to stick me
Stick it into your skin
And swallow

Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up

Cruise off
Still dumb
Can’t do the job
Bore a Protestant
Ask us when the castle falls apart
Drive by masturbator
And and his seated dog
Don’t get up and approach, son
Leave the cute, dizzy butler

Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up
Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up

They’re jerkin’ more
Munch, munchin’ anal numb
Large town evangelists
Circuit jerkin’ with the
Arch bibbin’ pivot man

The laws jab me
Fill the bellies of atheists
The best rock-needle store
the bitch has got a Satan dance

Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up
Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up
Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up
Come one, oh, come all
No sense puttin’ up
Track Name: Porno flicks from 1974
Do you play boy?
You know, they're not for real
Hustle her back to surgery
I just wanna feel

Porno flicks from 1974
Porno flicks from 1974

Still frame
Technology
Jade East, Kasha and Ron Jeremy

Porno flicks from 1974
Porno flicks from 1974

I'll never rest
I'll never rest
Until I find the key
to that woman's heart

Who could ask for more?

Porno flicks from 1974
Porno flicks from 1974'

Who could ask for more?
Track Name: Better than healing
Reach out
Turn out the lights
Follow me down
Into the stream now
It feeds the machinery

It’s better than healing
Sold it for feeling
You’ll be all right
Down from stealing
Can you see the snowman
On the sun?

Breathe in
The only secret
The only one
It’s easy to feed it
It brings you back to me

It’s better than healing
Sold it for feeling
You’ll be all right
Down from stealing
Can you see the snowman
On the sun?
Track Name: Witness protection program
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
Comes outside with his sunglasses on
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
I wish I knew who he did see
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
I said "hello,"
and he just turned from me

My neighbor's in the witness protection program
My neighbor's in the witness protection program

One day, he found a note
stuck on his door
It said "you're dead..."
"you can't hide no more."
I saw him talking to those
government men
he packed his shit
and started movin' again
I saw him driving off
hiding under a coat
I scared him good with all those
things that I wrote.

My neighbor's in the witness protection program
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
Hey, fuck the rat.

My neighbor's in the witness protection program
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
My neighbor's in the witness protection program
Track Name: Todd
Todd is Satan
Todd is Satan
Todd has sixes on his soul

Todd is Satan
Todd is Satan
Todd has sixes on his soul

Todd was born June 26th, 1966
And he used to be a boyscout
And he had a leisure suit
He thinks it’s cute
He thinks it’s cute
Foolin’ everyone
But, at least he’s not a right-to-lifer
That mows down God’s children
With a black handgun
In front of Denny’s
On a Saturday morning

Doo… doo… doo… doo… doo…

Todd is Satan
Todd is Satan
And I believe in every word he says
“You’ll see monkeys on coral”
I didn’t know just what he meant
But, now I know he’s Satan

Todd is Satan
Todd is Satan
Todd has sixes on his soul

Todd is Satan
Todd is Satan
Todd has sixes on his soul

Todd is Satan
Todd is Satan
But, at least he isn’t
Adam Curry
Track Name: Saturn girl
I’ll wait here
By the window
All things good
Come to those who wait
Fate can strip you naked
So can I
Get your name first?

Saturn girl
Don’t roll
Don’t burn the
Quick look bridge
Between us

I might find my nerve
I might find my nerve
I might find my nerve
Track Name: American
Something like this
do do do - do do do - do do do

Ya can't believe everything that you read
Can't believe everything on t.v.
Can't pick up a magazine and say
"that is what I want to be"
"I wanna be a star on MTV"
"I wanna make myself pretty"
"I wanna be the President, smoke crack"
"I wanna be the ATF back cracker"

I believe in the American

Don't believe everything that you read
Don't believe what you see on t.v.
Don't believe everything that you read
Don't believe anything on t.v.

Russell must have smoked a house
and Holly must have read from here to Houston
Oh no, here comes the ATF back crackers
I can feel them on my skull

FBI, you're under arrest
FBI, you're under arrest
FBI, you're under arrest
FBI, you're under arrest

"Say Mack, before you kick him,
why don't you let me take him in back
I think I can change this witness's mind
If you just give me a few seconds...
Are you gonna use that coffee cup?
Thanks...”

Something like this:
do do do - do do do - do do do
Track Name: Black marble
Black marble
The eight ball in the sky
Dead cell “N” has caught their eye
Black marble
They’ve come to see it through
There’s nothing that we can do

Black marble
Set it all to waste
The ice cream is melting
Down his curious face
Black marble
Time bombs in the cage
Black marble beings
Burned out by rage
Black marble zen
You could have been
Black marble zen
Here it goes again
Black marble zen
It’s weird this sky
Black marble zen
Never dies
