gone shopping


i think you want me here because you're bored
or you just want somebody to talk to

i'm so alone
i'm so alone
i don't have a home
i'm so alone

a little bit of spending money and passion
and like me i just don't understand

i'm so alone
i'm so alone
i don't have a home
i'm so alone

and in reality i really don't think you care
but what would it matter to you anyway

you're tapping your fingers
steering the wheel
gas pedal pressed slightly
your peripheral held tightly
and there is no stopping
there is no stopping you

fucked up my white knee


she has left
she is gone
and you wonder
and you start to gaze
she just left
not a single word
and you wonder
and you begin to ponder

thereby throbbing sensation
my black one's okay
other one's fucked up
fucked it up again
yes, the white one

not much time
just a few more days
then i'm done
then i'm not alone
in our world
with my perfect girl
i start to wonder
i begin to ponder

whereby throbbing sensation
my black one's in season
other one's twisted
and turned into a shape
of what i'm afraid to say

happy little children play, dance, and sing
happy little children all form inside a ring
happy little children never think these things
it's these things
that will kill you slowly

hereby throbbing sensation
my black one's erased
other one's cropping out
but fucked it up again
yes, the right one

she has left
she is gone
i can't help but wonder
of something i'm unsure of
i think too much
i let it go too long
i'm not that weak
it's just that i'm too meek

she spilled stuff all over herself


nothing's static
the charge is erratic
falling softly to her lap
and all over the desk
and the floor screams
it wants more
she sees more
oh geez, all that gore

and is it red?
the color in your head
perception of the fall
and we couldn't help her at all
and then she smells
and then it ends

and in another week
she'll smile a little more
she'll hide a little more
and when you can't find her
that's when you should remind her

it spills and stains
oh the human remain
of the last sigh behind
a mirror of smiles
behind her eyes
lives this wonderful life
our summer into fall
and i don't know
but i don't know her at all

she spills
and gives me the chills
she spills
stuff all over herself
all over herself

buy yourself brains


here's a dollar
go to the store
go by the counter
talk to the owner
he's selling something
something you need
it's costs 99 cents
go pick it up or something

here's a clue
put it in your hand
and then take a knife
and slit across your forehead
feel around inside
see, there's nothing
put the thing you just bought
in the place of that nothing

now take some stitches
that's needle and thread
and sew it back on
talking 'bout your forehead
walk out of the store
get in your car
and think for a minute
see, it all makes sense now

all you needed was that certain something
yeah, that certain something

i'm trying to finish


you know me
i try to smile
i try to go your way
i try to please
you know that
sometimes i sigh
sometimes i cry
i think too much

i'm trying to finish
so that i can move on
i'm trying to move
so that i can finish

you know me
i act real cute
i wink an eye
i pass that smile
you know that
sometimes i hurt
i'm never satisfied
i just never am

and i'm trying to finish
so that i can move on
i'm trying to stand still
but it's not possible anymore

and i'm trying to finish
and will you just let me
i'm trying to move on
i'm trying to finish

i'm trying to finish...

all because of it


all because of it
now we move
now we move fast
we've all regret the past
we'll all regret the present
we'll all regret in the future
before it does something
someone do something
someone please stop it
someone please kill it

broken tooth
attached scrotum
you're an old man
you need to live no more

i fought the war
you had the eye
now smelling the cement
nosed up to the sun

what am i
who is this jew?
an arab knows the end is near
an arab always does

i strike this priest
he gapes the hole
broken tooth and all
he'll scissor my soul

there's no way out
there's no way in
this one nipple is showing
through her black-white shirt

medicine makes better
pornography makes wetter
point of view inward
carpets my attention

i fought the war
and i lost my soul
jew, where are you?
jew, i'm with you too

someone please kill it
someone please stop it
someone do something
before it does something
we'll all regret in the future
we'll all regret in present
we've all regret the past
now we move fast
now we move
all because of it

you gotta be a better man man man
you gotta have a better plan, stan

you gotta get out of here
get the hell out of here
you ain't going nowhere
pick up your bags
and get the hell outta here

ad infinitum...

when i was ten and trading yen


when i was young
a woman's son
said i had really bad gums
he'd nod his head
and i'd see red
"it's all that shit you've been fed"
a mirror close
my runny nose
in between a rotted toast
a celery post
some beefy roast
and on the tongue the dreaded host...

halitosis
halitosis
halitosis
halitosis

when i was ten
and trading yen
a chinaman said i was his friend
he'd kiss my cheek
and i'd go meek
"i can hit you now before your peak"
a tongue-tied kiss
unwanted bliss
until the taste hits remiss
his eyes grew shut
and he backs right up
savoring the taste of my rotting luck

halitosis
halitosis
halle berry
halitosis

but i grew old
and was always told
to shut my mouth to trap that mold
that seeps through air
enhancing fear
nostril lining's wear and tear
i once used paste
but what a waste
it had never seemed to match the taste
of a rotting egg
when your saliva begs
to find that handsome old russian named oleg

halitosis
halitosis
halitosis
halitosis

are you done talking to me now?


my belly button shows
my belly button glows
my belly button knows
how to pacify these hoes

bitches ain't worth shit
bitches be rubbin' my tits
niggas be havin' fits
now i'm out of my wits

cracker beware
cracker show some fear
i'm sick of your pouting
it's time for your outing

just give me a gun
just give me a will
and i'll find a way
yeah, it'll be my today

my button belly knows
my button belly shows
my button belly bestows
ahh, fuck it i'm out this do'

and i ain't coming back
you heard me
i ain't coming back
you come and find me
and i'll be waiting
i'll be waiting for you

are you done talking to me now?
thought so
i thought so

violence


oh, would you please sit
would you please lie
i want to finger fuck this danger
right out of your spine
now turn your head
feel what i need
i want to jam this frightened concience
jam until it bleeds

am i super hard yet
am i super soft yet
biology and science
doesn't really matter
i'm your friend
and this is how we end
love and romance
doesn't really matter now
it never has and it never will
it never has and it never will

bell rings, round two
you'll take this to
a place where what the old men
walk smiling beside willing young boys do
you shake the skin
and then i'm in
a tearful eye and all this saliva
trapped within this evil grin

am i super hard yet
am i super duper yet
biology and trig
doesn't do the pig
i am your girl
and you're my boy
love and romance
doesn't really matter now
it never has but i want it to
it never has but i want it to

violins
sax and violins
is the name of a song
sax and violins
violins

and it never ends
i just pretend
the nights in bed with all the thoughts
that fuck out walls inside my head
you make no move
i must approve
deep down inside there's something missing
and i just can't put my finger on it

am i super hard yet
am i super soft yet
biology and science
doesn't really matter
i am your friend
and where do we end?
a frosty taste in my mouth
what you have does come out
and what i have does stay in
it always has and it always will
and what i have does stay in
it always has and it always will

i believe in violence
i believe in you
i believe in innocence
cause i believe in you
i believe in nothing
because i don't have to
when i believe in something
i believe in you
