Celebrity

Deceive us to free us take us away
You think that qualifies you - You think that you should have a say
The crier a liar stays by the shore
You are only famous - What makes you think that you are more

Dazzle me celebrity
Live your own reality
Newton mocked by surgery
Dazzle me stupidity

Discover another cause to adhere
Fly over everyone - all they do is interfere
Denying keep flying it's what you said
You don't recall your words - You think that you should stay instead

Dazzle me celebrity
Live your own reality
Newton mocked by surgery
Dazzle me stupidity

Why do we look up to the stars
Why do we idolize bizarre
Is there anything beneath their perfect teeth

The actor the factor they vent their rage
It doesn't take a genius - to play a role up on the stage
Fantastic with plastic all else is stripped
You take a rigid stance - unless there's gunplay in the script

Dazzle me celebrity
Live your own reality
Newton mocked by surgery
Dazzle me stupidity



Idiotic Pair

A sea of black and white - The grey won't choose tonight
So let's stay home - And watch the pretty bimbo on TV
The stars will shine so bright - And whine with all their might
Quite a spectacle - See the losers scream in agony

Whatever you decide will be just fine with me
Whichever one you choose to make our history
The choice between this idiotic pair
Won't make me a millionaire

Look and see the stars - Reflect off fancy cars
They see it all - They know where they need to place the blame
Watching from afar - Champagne and caviar
It would be so hard - For Robin Hood to choose his aim

Whatever you decide will be just fine with me
Whichever one you choose to make our history
The choice between this idiotic pair
Won't make me a millionaire

Dumbest of the dumbest of the animals on Earth - Slowly Trudging
Dumbest of the dumbest of the animals on Earth - Never Budging

If I were really rich - Then life would be a bitch
All the knowledge gained - I would have to carry so much weight
I would dig a ditch - My head and neck would itch
At least I couldn't see - To the left or right and that'd be great

Whatever you decide will be just fine with me
Whichever one you choose to make our history
The choice between this idiotic pair
Won't make me a millionaire - So I don't care

I don't care



Executards

Take a break look out on my island paradise
It's the end of month now it's time to sacrifice
On the beach counting making figures in the sand
Can't make their projections if they don't know what's on hand

I'm the only one that does the work
I'm the only one that's not a jerk

I'm the only one that sought a raft and kept my grip
Why did I take executives and let my pills go under with the ship

Another day like many counting on my knees
My boss is at my shoulder I ask him if he sees
The trail of smoke up on the hill across the bay
He ignores me mimes a sip of coffee then he turns and walks away

I still smell the stench of burning flesh I still hear their screams
They were in their meeting when the natives charged out from the trees
I'm the only one that had the sense to run and hide
Dinner for the cannibals and things are looking up for me

Now I sit here in the woods resting by a tree
No more counting coconuts while staring at the sea
Overwhelming hunger, I still smell the roasting staff
Thinking that my flame grilled manager would taste like chicken makes me laugh

I still smell the stench of burning flesh I still hear their screams
They were in their meeting when the natives charged out from the trees
I'm the only one that had the sense to run and hide
Dinner for the cannibals and things are looking up for me

I'm the only one that does the work
I'm the only one that's not a jerk
I'm the only one that sought a raft and kept my grip
Why did I take executives and let my pills go under with the ship

We were here for over half a year
Only one days walk to this place so clear
On the plane I'm laughing as we fly over the bay
Now I wonder how to document this when I write my resume'

I still smell the stench of burning flesh I still hear their screams
They were in their meeting when the natives charged out from the trees
I'm the only one that had the sense to run and hide
Dinner for the cannibals and things are looking up for me

I'm the only one that does the work
I'm the only one that's not a jerk
I'm the only one that sought a raft and kept my grip
Why did I take executives and let my pills go under with the ship



Guilt

Plant the seed of filthy greed
Cover up the real need
One bad apple spoils the rest
Then the serpent raids your nest
Speak of good that others should
Sacrifice for brotherhood
Take until we're all the same
Look for more to place the blame

All Fear - But nobody hears
Lies built - Our existence of guilt

Empty head lay late in bed
Rushing toward the thing they dread
Must convince more that they're right
All must bow before their might

All Fear - But nobody hears
Lies built - Our existence of guilt

Plans were laid the honest paid
Kill when they could not persuade
The winning cause would past the test
Annihilation of the rest
Trying times excuse the crimes
To the pedestal they climb
Speak of hate and speak of love
Speculation from above

All Fear - But nobody hears
Lies built - Our existence of guilt



Little Things

My favorite place to be
Sit and watch your fire burning
Push the insanity
At least I know you're learning
When will you leave your cage
When will you find your stage
It won't be long - It won't be long

From dreams to agony
Wake up on your rollercoaster
If I ignore your pleas
You might just throw the toaster
Both good and evil showing
The imitation's growing
It won't be long - It won't be long

Stress and worry eats the day - Never time enough for play
Work so hard at managing
What's the hurry what's the goal - Always rushing towards my hole
Why not enjoy the little things

Won't eat won't sleep won't hear won't see
Won't eliminate - Oh that's just great
You jump you fly you laugh you cry
You will find a way - to win the day

It was so long ago
I remember peace and quiet
But now I watch you grow
And everything's a riot
How can you be so loud
Lay back and watch the clouds
It won't be long - It won't be long

Stress and worry eats the day - Never time enough for play
Work so hard at managing
What's the hurry what's the goal - Always rushing towards my hole
Why not enjoy the little things



Apes

Is it for something - Is it for real
Is there a purpose - Is there a way that I should feel
So many questions - So little time
It's not your problem - Eventually I'll find the rhyme

Eating and sleeping and laughing and weeping - King or clown we spin around the sun
Loving and hating and killing and mating - Lost or found we spin around the sun

You can ignore me - That would be great
You can adore me - Or if you want to you can hate
We are so different - We are the same
It is so easy - to find the faults and place the blame

Eating and sleeping and laughing and weeping - King or clown we spin around the sun
Loving and hating and killing and mating - Lost or found we spin around the sun
Are we apes - Are we more
Are we special or washed up on the shore
Is it black - Is it white
Does it matter if we're right

Is there so few - Who really think
See through the colors - And try to smell past the stink
So many problems - So much unrest
So many people - that are as worthless as the best

Eating and sleeping and laughing and weeping - Chained or crowned we spin around the sun
Loving and hating and killing and mating - In the ground we'll spin around the sun
Are we apes - Are we more
Are we special or washed up on the shore
Is it black - Is it white
Does it matter if we're right



The Powdered Sugar Donut Song

You're so beautiful - Can't resist your pull
Perfection all in white - Obsession at first sight
Pure as Christmas snow - How can I say no
Fight the urgent need - Can't deny my greed

Guilty - Help me

What is in this wicked ring of sin - What happened to my discipline
I'm covered in your dust - Cause I can't fight my lust
I wake up wanting more - I'm living for my whore
I need you I don't care - One more then I'm done

Powder for my high - Luring lullaby
Singing in my dreams - Bursting all the seams
Mess up all my senses - Damn the consequences
I can not withstand - The one I have in hand

Guilty - Help me

What is in this wicked ring of sin - What happened to my discipline
I'm covered in your dust - Cause I can't fight my lust
I wake up wanting more - I'm living for my whore
I need you I don't care - One more then I'm done I swear

My heart skips a beat - I admit defeat
All I do is sit - I no longer fit
Bending and dividing - Energy subsiding
Never going back - Here is the attack

Guilty - Help me

What is in this wicked ring of sin - What happened to my discipline
I'm covered in your dust - Cause I can't fight my lust
I wake up wanting more - I'm living for my whore
I need you I don't care - One more then I'm done I swear



Lunatic

Sit and stare at my screen wandering mind on nicotine
Another lazy jerk mad enough to sing
Why should you care what I think on anything

Push down stings - Move a pick - Press record and play the part
Push a pen - Swing a stick - But does that make me smart

Why does it matter what I say
You shouldn't listen to me anyway
I might be right - I might be wrong
I'll never change the world just because I can write a song

Here's a plan of attack from a pessimistic hypochondriac
Think consuming thoughts fictitious pain
Look for a rhyme then find a way to entertain

Push down stings - Move a pick - Press record and play the part
Push a pen - Swing a stick - But does that make me smart

Why does it matter what I say
You shouldn't listen to me anyway
I might be right - I might be wrong
Why should I change the world just because I can write a song

I can write a bridge and play guitar and voice all my concerns
I can play a beat and rhyme some words and hope that you will learn
Wait that won't work - You shouldn't listen to this jerk

Funny walk, Hat with bells, tells a tale about how much the king smells
Another idiot knows how to rule
Is that your mind or did you listen to the fool

Push down stings - Move a pick - Press record and play the part
Push a pen - Swing a stick - But does that make me smart

Why does it matter what I say
You shouldn't listen to me anyway
I might be right - I might be wrong
Am I qualified to change the world just cause I wrote a song

Push down strings - Move a pick - Kick my feet - Swing a stick
Play a beat - Hear the click - Lay it on - Really thick
Move the mouse - Play a trick - Build a house - Made of brick
Push the pen - Write a lick - Come hear the lunatic



Therapy

There is no one here time for therapy
There's nothing near just these lights I see
Staring at the flickering of yellow green and red
Write down all the stupid things that dance inside my head

For me
For me

I'm not here for you this failure's just for me
It's what I do all I want to be
Driving down the dead end road trying not to snore
Will I ever break the code that leads to something more

For me
For me

There's no one here to hear
There's no one here

There's no one here today
And that's OK

The images we see manipulate our thoughts
They would like to tell us who to be and what they bought
This is what to eat and drink this is what to wear
I don't care if you will think just sit and stare

At me
At me

There's no one here today
It's time to play



Germinator

Why am I so evil
All I want to do is just survive
I might cause upheaval
The I'll leave you maybe still alive

Oh Yeah

Touch yourself then socialize
You don't even realize
Reproduction is my prize
I will not apologize
There is almost nothing that I can't withstand
Just pull up your pants and walk away there's no time to wash your hands

I was here before you
And I'll be here longer than you think
I do not abhor you
Even if I help make you extinct

Oh Yeah

Touch yourself then socialize
You don't even realize
Reproduction is my prize
I will not apologize
There is almost nothing that I can't withstand
Just pull up your pants and walk away there's no time to wash your hands

Spray down your possessions
Rub yourself till you're in agony
Fighting with obsession
Still won't be enough to conquer me

Yeah Yeah

Touch yourself then socialize
You don't even realize
Reproduction is my prize
I will not apologize
There is almost nothing that I can't withstand
Just pull up your pants and walk away there's no time to wash your hands



Doubts

I'm here again I thought that I had won
The demon's gone but I'm not done
Stupid me I thought that I could find
The missing peace inside my mind
What could the answer be
I'll ask mythology

What am I doing wrong I'm so worn out
Why should I sing this song and face my doubts
Are you there - Are you there

What's the point is there much more to gain
Above the blindness and the pain
If I stop I'm deeper in the hole
And then the master takes it's toll
Ridiculous I know it's in my head
A pill can make me dream instead

Another war - Who is this for
Where is he now - Where is he now
Impose his will - So more can kill
Where is he now - Where are you now

I don't see I guess I'll never know
It might be time to let it go
I could try but maybe it's too late
How much longer do I hate
I'm cynical I know I failed the test
When will I get some rest

What am I doing wrong I'm so worn out
Why should I sing this song and face my doubts
Are you there - Are you there

Another war - Who is this for
Where is he now - Where is he now
Impose his will - So more can kill
Where is he now - Where are you now
