about

The second cd release from Sleeping Dogs Lie and the most experimental and probably the most offensive. These 4-track recordings will take you up and down and all around the tone, dynamic and lyrical spectrum... Pure sonic oddness.

Track Name: Slightly confusing to a stranger
Slightly confusing to a stranger
don't worry, there is no danger
we interrupt this comic device

And you know
And you know
And you know
And you know
They have to spend, spend

Pull off your coat
and wheel your chair
we need the MS ones
over there please
lone atrial fibrillation
and mucus in the back
sometimes its hard to sleep

And you know
And you know
And you know
And you know
And you know
And you know
And you know
And you know
You have to sleep

It's time to go
It's time to go
to work

Slightly confusing to a stranger
Get off the road,
you asshole
the left lane is for passing
Track Name: Mr Corn
Mr. Corn, Mr. Corn, Mr. Corn
is my friend
Mr. Corn, Mr. Corn

They said that he is the best
but, I had to arrest my suspicion
He's always gone fishin'
or waxing his bikini hair
Well, I don't care if he's kissin'
Janet Reno
In an Italian restaurant
with a little bit of candlelight
and a little bit of vino
and a guy named Pedro
serving 'em ziti
yeah, baby

'Mr. Corn, Mr. Corn, Mr. Corn
is my friend
Mr. Corn, Mr. Corn

Ewe...Mr. Corn

Goes something like this
do-do-do do-do-do

I understand sir
but, I'm working for you
do you not understand English
I'll have that thing for you very soon
Why does your wife have to talk to me?
Look, Mrs. Zimmerman
Can I call you Michelle?
Look, look Michelle
Calm down, okay?
Track Name: The girl that broke my heart
She moved out
And took the couch
I apid a thousand bucks to get out
Left me, for a skinhead
Now, she’s the one who pouts
I guess it’s back to Pittsburgh
With your cat
Go get fat
Smoke two packs a day
Nothing else to say

She’s the girl that broke my heart

Well, this one scratched my car
She played the part of Ramses
From the start
I should have seen it coming
Bumming money from my Visa card
She gets me hard as nails
But, her nine inch friend
Drove me to the end
I tried to bend
But, I fell apart

She’s the girl that broke my heart

My girlfriends are all the same
I guess there’s no one else to blame
I let her get a job at K-Mart
She loved me from the start
She said I could
Put her in my family tree
She’s for me, but

She’s the girl that broke my heart
Track Name: Big fat slob
I’m large
Big and fat and living
I like to fuck with you all day
I’m big and fat
I go to bars
And I eat buffets
I like to eat
And I like to sit around
And talk about doing sit-ups
And push-ups
Fuck that, man

I’m a big fat slob

Take it, Fatboy

I’m big and fat
I’ll eat your mom
I’m big and fat
So what?
I’m big and fat
Yeah, I like to be this way
I’m big and fat
I’d sit on your face
If I had the chance

That’s not a very nice thing to say?

I’ll eat everything in sight, baby
And that includes your mom
That includes everything, okay?
Look, I’ll stop by with a pizza later
Maybe you can bring me some
Cream puffs
I like danishes
Whatever suits you, you know?
I can eat doughnuts… day, night
Whatever the fuck you wanna
Bring me, okay?
Look, you skinny little fucking bitch,
I don’t give a shit
I don’t give a shit
Feed me, sweetie honey
Track Name: This guy on a bench
I don’t have you
Yet, you still think I’m green
In between the sheets
You seem to dream of him
And the rest of those
Self-proclaimed no ones

Your only game
Is to put this to shame
I would give this my life
I have saved for your rainy day
All the way
To your burning stage
Age is no mask
Basking in the glory days

Life is short stories
Gazing at you
Track Name: Mr Death
I have
Come for you
You
Do not understand
I am death

You are dead, now
You Americans
You like to talk
And say
“Lemme tell ya somethin’”
well, you’re dead now
so, shut up

How did you all die?
Simple
The salmon mousse

Stop that ridiculous noise
You English
Are all so fucking pompous
Lemme tell ya somethin’
You act sick, but
You are no match for me

I
Am
Death
Track Name: Scream
Man is born
From the womb
And spend the rest of his life
Trying to get back in

I’m in the shell
I fell down
Lifelike
I just might
I just might scream

The Earth is rolling
From my feet
The Earth is rolling
From my feet
Can I scream?

You see, screaming
Is not allowed
Track Name: HIV
Sittin’ round
My day off
Nothing to do
So, I called a girl
That I used to know
I asked her
How she was
And she said that
She was lonely
And I told her
I understand
Don’t worry, baby
I have a plan

H.I.V.

She came by
Sat on the bed
Had cervesas
She went to my head

H.I.V.

She said goodbye, now
And she went home
So, I sit around
And wonder now…

H.I.V.
Track Name: Electrofetus
Electrofetus
Electrofetus
28.000 volts
through the umbilical cord
amniotically born 23, kids
spastic blood from the beer swill
feed the fetus

Electrofetus

Shitvision Studios
Jim, Jim, Carl, Jim, Carl!
Birdbrain
Prepare to have your ass
Firmly kicked

Electrofetus

C’mon Carl
You know you
Want to touch it
There it is

Electrofetus

I’m just a tiny little fetus
Where am I going to go?
Nobody loves me
I hope someone
Will take care of me?
Will you help me?
I hope you do
Because
I am Satan’s spawn
I am the Electrofetus
Track Name: Superplastic
Superplastic
Big Brother factory
Air traffic static
On my car phone
Let me go
I’m old enough to know
Children need
The sensory addiction

Superplastic figurines
Superplastic enemy
Superplastic celibacy
Superplastic machines
Running in me

There a lookin’ moon
Hangin’ low
The tears of joy
The plastic toys
Are vomiting

Superplastic figurines
Superplastic enemy
Superplastic celibacy
Superplastic machines
Running in me

I am the superplastic

The radon smartbombs
On the chiajesus
They please us all the way
With the President’s
Rubber elastic
Track Name: Buddy
I don't know what to say to you
and I don't know what to do
You complain about your shitty life
and how you're always screwed
Kevorkian was busy
so you call me up instead
you spent too much at Macy's
and you're mom won't pay for it

I don't know why you think the world was made for you
Bill Gates bought the fucker
and God knows what he'll do

I don't know what to say to you
and I don't know what to do
You complain about your shitty life
and how you're always screwed
You say you like John Matthews
'cause it seems he's really nice
but, the weather man don't give a damn
if you're naughty or your nice

I don't know why you think the world was made for you
I don't know why you think you're due
Track Name: Pine
When you’ve got no one
Left or right
The red light
Cross the blue ones
And take us all back tonight
She’s late again
But, I don’t have the words
To mend her
She’s already gone
From the big box
To the pine
Eye width
I drift like ether
In the line of fire
I’ve got no one
Left or right
The sting is the pulse
On this raging silent night
The things
Never seen or done
She’ll never be the one
Someday
When you’ve got no one left
Right there, I survive
She’s already gone
