Track Name: The man with no face
Do you work out?
or have any pets?
there’s great machines
do you want to do sets?
mom looks unsure
she’s just out of reach
lured by a shark
walking on the beach

The man with no face

pressed to the bench
scared to make a sound
nearly did it
before the startling pounds
door opened wide
then came the chase
off the roof
to escape

The man with no face
Track Name: Elephant man
Rambo came to breakfast
but, they hauled him out of town
he was leavin’ on a bridge
but, he had to turn around
John was poked and prodded
as he lay there in the circus
I heard that he was rescued
by a man that had a purpose
Rosa sat her ass down
and she let the honkies know

I’m Mrs. parks, I’m Mrs. parks
and I’m not gettin’ up
I’ll survive, I’ll survive
and I’m the Rambo man
I will rise, I will rise
and I’m the Jesus man
I’m real nice, I’m real nice
and I’m the Elephant Man

Jesus was a man
that need no introduction
I really didn’t know him
but, he was full of gumption
I will rise, I will rise
and I’m the Jesus man
Track Name: The good one are all taken
She likes the mess of a married man
she’s into tattoos and motorcycles and boys in bands

She says the good ones are all taken

Waking up naked and left is not theft
if you let it
She’s going downtown
and down
you can bet it

She says the good ones are all taken

He doesn’t feed you
but, you let him
He doesn’t need you
but, you let him
He only seeds you
and bleeds you
but, you let him

You say the good ones are all taken
Track Name: I hate New York
I hate
I hate
I hate
New York

Never been there
Track Name: And I you
And I you
And I you And I you
And I ubiquitously decline
to pontificate
upon this recent blather
Track Name: Falco
Falco
where have you been?
a man of mystery
I miss your pop synth

Falco
where are you running to?

Der Kommissar
will always be in town
You rock my Amadeus
from the underground
You can have your Nina
and all her luft balloons
I dig the Flock of Seagulls
but no one sings a tune like

Falco
where are you running to?

Vienna must have trembled
when they heard the news
the Dominicans
are giving me the blues
Johann gave us joy
Drahdiwaberl and the gun
you gave me pop fever
and I’m not the only one

Falco
where are you running to?

Track Name: Yellow birds
I see stars
or yellow birds, rather
flightlessness a must
‘cause someone sold the sky
there’s air up there
there’s air up there
and pretty clouds too
but I can’t tell the difference
without the blues

herds
there’s herds of
herds
there’s herds of
of them yellow birds

Every day’s the same ‘cuz
Every day’s the same ‘cuz
Every day’s the same ‘cuz
Every day’s the same
‘cause the sun shines all the time
‘cause someone cursed the darkness
haven’t slept a wink
since the last night harkened

herds
there’s herds of
herds
there’s herds of
of them yellow birds

I see stars
or yellow birds, rather
reticent
and downtrodden
and resigned
and angry
and cowering
and startled
and scared
and belittled
and aggressive
and unsure

Track Name: Lost at sea
Lost at sea
a desperate plea
from behind my desk
the waves so high
flourscent sky
the white caps froth my tie

Lost at sea
a desperate plea
Gulfstream take me home
Distant ship
and there I sit
waiting for a lifeline
I am fading
wading through the calls
there be oceans
just beyond these walls

Lost at sea
a desperate plea
from behind my desk
the waves so high
flourscent sky
the white caps froth my tie

I am fading
wading through the calls
there be oceans
just beyond these walls

The tape it runs
Shackleton’s readapted tale
with hearty crew
I’ll make it through
to see another day

Lost at sea
a desperate plea
fading through the calls
there be oceans
just beyond these walls
Track Name: Meat is murder
Meat is murder, she said
but, I thought she wanted to meet
so I met her

Her name was unimpressive
but she was so expressive
when it came to her cause

‘Cause the PETA folk applaud those
who will fight ‘fer fur
and those who are wearin’ it

Meat is murder, she said again
but, this time she was rather stern
as I was learnin’ how to chow without the cow
I’d love to subsist on a fist of whey
or hey, a plate of brussel sprouts
but, then she started to shout

Meat is, meat is, meat is, meat is murder
Meat is, meat is, meat is murder

Meat is murder
Mc corporate South American
sink into the ocean
A sea of cows chowin’
south of the border
but, I can’t stop the order now
can’t stop the order now
can’t stop the order now
Track Name: Somebody get that orange skunk ape off my drums
Ahhhh.
Ah…
AHHHHHH.
Ahh.
