Track Name: sounds good to me '83
hey
it was punk rock but now its jock rock
it sounds good, really good to me
play a folk song, what a new thought
it sounds good, really good to me
look at his haircut, he's wearing makeup
it looks good, really good to me

same lame shame game
you're damned if you play it
done already, dead already

ignores the bores
ignore the bore

stars go out to bars they all get high,
brainwaves are dry, i wish they'd all die... tonight!

hey
let's jump ship, go on a new trip
it looks good, really good to me
let's be a DJ and play what they play
it sounds good, really good to me
lets start a noise band, a gimmick joke band
it looks cool, 1983
Track Name: land survey
there's a place
where i am safe
apart from
everybody's gaze
where they can't see
demons in me
smiley faced wrists
with razor blades

the blood runs out
a smile creeps in
a constant thought
ends, then begins
i've let you down
you've let me in
it's over before
it begins

definitely
destined to be
torture

forbidden love and happiness
self destruction and loneliness
i feel no guilt, i feel nothing
a selfish lust comes over me

i wish you knew
so you could save
my dark soul
from this shallow grave
seconds stretch
into countless days
how much longer
until i'm in your grace?
Track Name: ashes over idaho
oh look who forgot to call out your name
your name is franklin

it was me i can admit it
it was me vitamin head

buh bah dae dup bup buh dah duh

my bleeding heart wants to forgive
an eye for an eye for an eye is what they did

look who was never quite the same
look who was born a blue eyed mistake
your name is franklin
Track Name: depredation medication
we've stopped all of our arguing
finish your meal impatient girl
this is your mom, this is my song
spend my afternoon forgetting you

does it feel all right?
do you feel all nice?
does it feel all right?

spend my afternoon forgetting you
dull knives for me impatient boy
she's trimming hair in my underwear
this is your mom, this is your song

does it feel all right?
does it feel all nice?
does it feel all right?

medicine, medicine, medicine
medicine, medicine, medicine
Track Name: skateboarding hurts
she's got a story to tell
about a wishing well
consuming all her desire
granting wishes with lies

when we were walking with demons and fire
you felt so alive
when we were dancing with demons in fire
you always said we could give it a try

nightmare lover girl
you're such a nightmare, girl
nightmare lover girl
Track Name: procure
it's friday night among the TV heads
with no ambition or free will
willfully herded and regarded by none
don't get any one of them pregnant

hold on to all that's dear to me
genz benz enclosures on a friday night with you

oh my heart it hurts so bad
and my love for you it grows so sad
headcheck headcheck
check your hair

oh that's right you are my friend

genz benz enclosures on a friday night with you
and your sure that we could never be a part of what they do
oh look they all seem so scared of you
genz benz enclosures on a friday night with you

oh my heart it hurts so bad
and my love for you it grows so sad
and takes, and takes
me nowhere

oh that's right you are my friend

the kids are getting cultured on a sunday night with you
Track Name: firekid / lovefriend
got my tongue between my teeth
my fingernails are broken victims
so sick and tired of living meek
for once you'll get an honest critique

from firekid
he'll never quit
my firekid, kill her
kill kill kill

got my head between my knees
your trust replaced by heavy breathing
pat my back just to appease
your smile becomes my disease

not firekid
he'll never quit
my firekid, kill her
kill kill kill

now my home imprisons me
the bars are just your expectations
my clear perspective comes from underneath
impoverished but now i am free

with firekid
we'll never quit
my firekid, kill her
kill kill kill


whatever happened to true love with pure hearts
i guess they died as i keep breathing and i learn
it's not necessarily a girl

whatever happened to true friends on my watch
i guess they all lied and i know i'm had
hard to keep eye contact

lopsided faux friendship
nearsighted faux friendship

nearsighted...
Track Name: andy's deal
cathy's coming over
she thinks i'm sober
never gonna show up,
never gonna show her,
too afraid to show up

way down under you've come undone
foundation's rotted son, don't blame me cause i tried
purple fuzz has you compromised
it's nothing i don't know, cause sometimes i still hide

cathy's coming over
she thinks i'm sober
never gonna show her,
too afraid to show her

gallows mellow hallowed yellowed
Track Name: gravity is not your friend
i wish gravity would let me go
cleanse the earth of her evil souls
that means all of you has gotta go
carry me down around to the door

i would kiss him back,
or i would kiss you back

my head is not so hospitable
perpetual leak from too many bowls
armies of sick human naive souls
carry me down down down around to the door

i would kiss him back,
or i would kiss you back
Track Name: hola
my brother's gonna die with yours truly
my sister's gonna die in my arms
my daddy's gonna die, already dead
this song will never die

hey, not you!

my brother and i are gonna die on the way to the bank
to deposit this check we made, this check is signed jesus christ

hey, yours are too!
Track Name: tempe, az ETC
let's take a road trip away from the hawks
we'll trade the college kids for hicks and jocks
what's the difference anyway?
we'll slay some hipster tang and yuppies

the desert's so big for a little fish like me
so silly to let shit like this get to me
i can forgive you if you can forgive me
i'll admit to some things you didn't see

hold on to me

let's herd the cattle and tend the sheep
cause their music is their identity
darling amazing shiny band
mom and dad buy me an amp!

it doesn't matter what they say,
how does it look and what does it pay?
wait i've heard this song before,
to virgin ears its not a bore
Track Name: march indoctrinated
march into the sun
march in to the beat of this drum

when you were here
i could have sworn that you were gone
cause i know that the last time i looked over my shoulder you were gone
Track Name: i don't apologize
i can't hate you for what i am
but love you for what i'm not
that's guilty of doing wrong
can't break this taboo bond

suck it up and suck it in
the truth has been lonely friend
put my heart out in the sun
for everyone

i tried to do things your way
left broken hearts in my wake
you will disown and disavow
you're never there anyhow

now i've got a chance to change

all she did was
show me how valuable i am now
feels so good to
be at the top of someone's list!

i know that things won't be the same
i'm sick of being in this state
you will disown and disavow
you're never there anyhow

i'm not ashamed
Track Name: leslie's deal
i've got some lies to tell you about a girl i know
she is a rock promoter and she's one hell of a punk rock girl

she is a rock promoter
i am a rock and roll singer
i am the best in the whole wide world
she says she's really strung out
the scenesters have her in doubt
a desert full of copy machines

one more hit on poppy
bunk gear is such a drag
arrive on a plain so abstract
we forget where we are at

where are we at? i don't know...

she says let's have this beer
i can't cause i gots to steer
sorry that i can't oblige you
she says shes really strung out
the scenesters have her in doubt
a desert full of copy machines

she is a rock promoter

so i bet you've guessed how
this motion picture ends
cold without commitment but she
has another friend

there she goes booking those shows
book those shows
bookin those little independent shows
Track Name: old highway 666
walking on highway 666
talking with jesus but it makes no difference
lukewarm words and a plastic crucifix

witches encircle i try to resist
perfumed with poison and painkiller twist
goddamn that devil man, such an opportunist

well my friend, he had it figured out at the ripe old age of twelve

you can't save what's already in the grave
Track Name: dear ms. science fiction,
dear ms. science fiction,
let's get higher than fashion!
got a motherfuckin nosebleed!
from motherfuckin moonbeams!

i can talk shit all day cause i played with king kong, mister black francis
la la la, oh oh oh, etc

waking, baking, annihilating
braincells to keep my cool
i tried already
i tried, are you ready?
for exceptions to the rule

i come with a migraine
to towns where the pagans
have all turned to pilgrims
and we have em begging
and dying and sweating
the cowards are schmoozing
and cutting their hair

but hey girl, can we have some fun?
can you talk to god? will you loosen up for me?
hey babe, help me cut it up
help me push them out
will you lie to them for me?
Track Name: on fire
here and gone with the sun
was born for sure quarter indian
they labor for you until exhaustion
your lips are so red from their blood

but when i'm beside you darling i'm on fire
requesting just a strand of your hair is required
to hang me from the ghosts that are in your bedroom
i'm in love with all of you... everyone

my faith in none is liberation
my mouth is open so wide, as big as the sun
i know now for sure that i'm no one
Track Name: paul allen
why does she walk alone at night,
have to hold her flower open wide?

let's talk about it!
let's fight about it!

regret in her head
but now she's dead
still she's so loved in my bed
regret in her head but now she's dead
i know an innuendo
Track Name: the killing
this is for killing with you kid
this is for taking our time
i'm still walking without you
let's take a walk outside

here's for killing with you kid
here's for taking our time
i'm still walking without you here
i'm still losing my mind

time doesn't exist for a vacant mind
the killing must persist, someone is gonna die!
