cold you know the yolk it's spreading from you laugh as people scatter 'bout surrounded by a veil of stars you realize your life is dark earth gets colder every day if scientists could have their way they'd study us from far away and watch as people's minds decay cold your body's in the hands of fools with swimming pools and low iq's there's nothing to see, nothing to do buy your stocks and sell your jewels bill collectors stole my mail my wife and kids are all for sale i hope to god i go to jail and no one can come up with bail cold life i can't control my buried thoughts the slightest thing makes me distraught i'm like the people i once fought my every action's being bought robot trainers earn their pay as mutant kids go out to play it's such a pretty pretty day with orange nights and days of grey cold i've now become a nervous wreck i'm getting closer to my death i keep expecting my last breath as all my friends just laugh and jest the earth is such a filthy place and human such an awful race and i'd rather live in outer space where death goes at a slower pace cold life
first last night we're riding home with friends in a big blue car for this man fed us rubbish as if it were caviar we told him, 'sir, please go away!' 'we're innocent of crimes!' he hit me with his black nightstick and all i heard were cries i'm falling i asked her for a date one night she thought it'd be a laugh i'd take her to a restaurant and then up to her pad i waited at my house that night for her phone call to come she'd gone off with a ruffian and he came by with a gun i'm falling i'm falling yes i'm falling
Do you wanna? Are you gonna? Huh? Hey! Watch me!
well i'm hiding my eyes from the morning sun and i keep on working till the work is all done but a voice in my head keeps ticking away as the sweat's hosed down from yet another day well he works hard and he lives hard and he breaks his back without nothing to gain while the boss man sits around and drinks champagne all day (you work and you work and you work and) in life, there's just one transition all day (you work and you work and you work and) in life, there's just one decision well i'm peeling the blisters off my working hand is that what it takes to make you understand? that it's something you read, not something you meant to be slaving away without a shred of integrity he worked hard and he lived hard and he broke his back without nothing to say while the man in control was just laughing away all day (you work and you work and you work and) in life, there's just one transition all day (you work and you work and you work and) in life, there's just one decision was it something you read? was it something you meant? was it something you said? or was it heaven sent? all day (you work and you work and you work and) in life, there's just one transition all day (you work and you work and you work and) in life, there's just one decision
well i live with snakes and lizards and other things that go bump in the night cos to me everyday is halloween i have given up hiding and started to fight i have started to fight well any time, any place, anywhere that i go all the people seem to stop and stare they say 'why are you dressed like it's halloween? you look so absurd, you look so obscene' o, why can't i live a life for me? why should i take the abuse that's served? why can't they see they're just like me it's the same, it's the same in the whole wide world well i let their teeny minds think that they're dealing with someone who is over the brink and i dress this way just to keep them at bay cos halloween is everyday it's everyday o, why can't i live a life for me? why should i take the abuse that's served? why can't they see they're just like me it's the same, it's the same in the whole wide world o, why can't i live a life for me? why should i take the abuse that's served? why can't they see they're just like me i'm not the one that's so absurd why hide it? why fight it? hurt feelings best to stop feeling hurt from denials, reprisals it's the same it's the same in the whole wide world
love - love is like an open hand stings a little when it lands hold me closer hold me tighter hold me so damn close that my heart's on fire it's a fantasy it's a nightmare and the whole damn world is walking round in theirs i said love - love is like a razor blade double edge and double pain hold me closer hold me tighter when i rip your flesh and the pain is fresh it's a fantasy it's a nightmare and the whole damn world doesn't seem to care i said love - love is like a butcher knife double sharp for single lives hold me closer hold me tighter as the lights go out and we start to shout it's a fantasy it's a nightmare with a big black bruise and a handful of hair i said love -
nice place clean water fresh air blue skies like pirates we tried it we took what we deserved half million years later we'd used up our reserves we're crying 'what happened?' we get what we deserve we get what we deserve we get instead the isle of man the isle of man i've wandered through forests with our garbage waist-high can't clean it i mean it we get what we deserve rainy mornings dry evenings it's growing on my nerves just gases you fascists you get what you deserve you get what you deserve you get instead the isle of man the isle of man i'm writing this letter so no one will forget some future cave dweller will find these notes an isle of man the isle of man
withered rope you hang what's empty can't remain to put it simply in time cry the hollow words to sing with false disguise smothered hope fly from sorrow for a new divine tomorrow i just don't want to know anymore life shifts up and down everybody knows it's wrong why don't you care? now do it seem fair? it's not in the rhyme or reason so it goes with every season crawl to top fall through bottom first hand love is really rotten slice of life find what's plenty inch towards a sanctuary light with me inside the womb i know everyone everybody knows it's me it's my voice, my voice cries out obscenity sightless eye regard my past sometimes it should i just don't want to know anymore.
red hand takes a purple terror love knows these knots when we escaped from the madhouse we were locked out tonight we murder x 4 between the battle of careening hate we will wait, but not for our time to hate and take to deflower tonight tonight we murder x 4 between the pain of battle and pain love will not untie these knots a twisted puppet filled with hate he'll not untie these knots tonight we murder x 4 Who... Why murdered tonight we murder x 8

Tell me something I don't know Sell me something I can't use Push the buttons Connect the goddamned dots Live-in thief in my bedroom, bathroom Commodity, sodomy, Glass arch enemy Promise everything Take it all away Give it a rest You're lying through your teeth You're lying through your teeth Who, what, where, why, who When did you say the earth would stop turning? why did you say we would all start burning? When should i make a pledge? Should i listen to the voices in my head? Connect the goddamned dots Connect the goddamned dots who am i trying to impress? who could care less?

Put it country simple, Earth has a lot of things other folks might want, like the whole planet. And maybe these folks would like a few changes made, Like more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and room for their way of life. We've seen this happen before, right in these United States. Your way of life destroyed the Indian's way of life, The Indian Reservation is extinction. But I offer this distinction I'm with the invaders, no use trying to hide that. And at the same time I disagree with some of the things they are doing. Oh, we're not united any more than you are. Oh, we're not united any more than you are. Conservative faction is set on nuclear war as a solution to the Indian personality. Others disagree [x2] I don't claim my motives are 100% humane, but I do say if we can't think up anything quieter, and tidier, than that, we aren't all that much better than you new earth aches. There is no place else to go, The theater is closed. There is no place else to go, The theater is closed. Cut word lines, cut music lines, smash the control images, smash the control machine.

Open eyes conspire to reduce the point of view Closing all the windows opens doors in you Waiting for the setting suns, I memorize Watching with indifference as clouds collide If paisley could fly Theorize and justify the one reality Someone finds and answer, but it's not for me Do clouds have eyes? If paisley could fly If paisley could fly If paisley could fly If paisley could fly
