about

"This whole town. It's being invaded by the other world.
Worlds of someone's nightmarish delusions come to life.
Little by little the invasion is spreading.
Trying to swallow up everything in darkness."
-Harry Mason

Nietzsche.
Coca-cola.
Strong biceps, ouch.
Take advantage of the Left Key.
Surgeon General.
The old man in the sea go back to middle school.
Love Merryweather.
Just because you're paranoid.
Albatross some bean bags.
Never eat. Never eat today I'm
going to teach you about the ear.
Three Country People.
(bodies like equals)
The Lord's name wards off the devil,
if you say it out loud.
What comes next?
I'm afraid to say it out loud.

Track Name: Crocodile Rock (Elton John Cover)
I remember when rock was young,
me and Suzie had so much fun,
holdin hands and skimmin stones,
had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own.

But the biggest kick I ever got,
was doin a thing called the Crocodile Rock,
while them other kids were rockin round the clock,
we were hoppin and boppin to the Crocodile Rock,
well,
Crile rockin, the song is shockin,
and your feet just can't keep still,
I never knew me a better time,
and I guess I never will...

Oh, lawdy mama, those Friday nights,
when Suzie wore her dress as tight as a,
Crile rockin, we were out of sight.

AAAH AHAHAHAH AAAAAH
AHAHAHAH AAAAAH
AHAHAHAH AAAAAH

The years went by and rock just died,
Suzie went and left me for some foreign guy,
long nights spent cryin by the record machine,
dreamin of my Chevy and my old blue jeans,
but I'll never got the kicks we got,
doin a thing called the Crocodile Rock,
while the other kids were rockin down the clock,
we didn't know the thought the Crocodile Rock would last,
well,
Crile rockin, the song is shockin,
and your feet just can't keep still,
I never knew me a better time,
and I guess I never will...

Oh, Crile rockin, those Friday nights,
when Suzie wore her dress as tight as a,
Crile rockin, we were out of sight.

AAAH AH AH AH AH AAAAAH
AHAHAHAH AAAAAH
AHAHAHAH AAAAAH
Track Name: God said, "Denver."
(((took some kids from staten island
took a boat and we headed south
took a violence to a milk man
shot him right above his mouth

looked out from between my bars
and prayed as hard as I could manage
asked for a place where I could go
to reclaim my proper spiritual balance

and then from nowhere up on mars
I heard the bleeting of a lamb - "bah"
between the honking of all the cars
deep in the hot summer of sam.
listen, can you hear him?)))

still got some money in a bank account east
of the river where they dump all the old bodies.
i've started selling old tin cans to the people
who don't seem to have any hobbies.

i feel sorry for them,
cause i was chosen,
just listen,
he's talkin to me!

God said, "Denver, Colorado"

guess i'll have to start moving all my stuff
out to the far frontier
pullin' out west to old colorado
leave my family here

i feel sorry for them,
cause i was chosen,
just listen,
he's talkin to me!

(thank you God for this amazing day
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
i who have died am alive again today,
and it's the sun's birthday, and the light and the breeze
thank you God for this amazing chance
I'm gonna learn to dance
and make a realballroom dancer)

and when he talks, you know you listennn
Track Name: Nebraska
I'm gonna replace my kidneys with kidney beans,
I'll replace my hands with Vanilla Coke,
I'll replace my eyes with pictures of Richard Nixon,
I'll replace your lightbulb if you give me a hand job.

I got a girl who sleeps all day,
knows when to work and knows when to play,
she takes my Winston's when I try to smoke,
I said, "You must be crazy, this must be a joke."
I said, "Girl, we're gonna hafta talk pretty soon,
but first let's head back to your room."
And it's a terrible thing,
but it's so easy."

I'm gonna move to Nebraska,
I'm gonna fuck myself,
Nothin else for a boy to do,
I can't just sit around here playin checkers all day.

I've got no imagination,
I've got no imagination,
I've got no brain,
I'll change my name to Chevy Chase,
and spend all my time tryinta save the whole human race.
I'll change my name to Jackie Chan,
then I'll do the very best that I can.
I'll change my name to Phil Collins,
then I'll finally feel it callin
in the air
tonight,
put on my Tim Allen costume I am never coming out.

I'm gonna fuck myself,
I'm gonna go to Nebraska,
I'm gonna fuck myself,
Nothin else for a boy to do,
I can't just sit around here on my hands all day.
Track Name: Mulch (feat. Dee Bird)
i'm bringing some cookies from work,
and i'm bringing home some movies,
and i'm bringing home some drawings that i did,
i hope you think they're funny.

and i've been thinking of coming home since before i left this morning.

but now i wait a little while in our courtyard,
and i set my bag down by the wall,
i know some of you kids are still mad at me,
and i don't blame you at all.

tonight is gonna be a tired night.

and i dreamed all day of planting tulips here,
and now my hands are covered in rich soil,
and you look out at me through the window
thank God for Earthly toils.

tonight is gonna be a tired night.

Track Name: Kansas Bombs
Well you know, it breaks my heart, the way they're already done, before they've started, they're already gone it's so

Drive me to the record store but don't let me buy any more of those things, just pickin up.

You gotta take deep breaths and you know, you might be already done before you started we're already gone let's go.

Track Name: Small Children
you can't count on the circle to guide you
and the lack of names makes me say its done
when its done then that's when the drums start
and the life goes into water

where it become just like a water fall
of more girls than ever before
with short short skirts and you just see
the bottom of her legs and the smooth parts
of her legs

its enough to make you die
it's enough to make your heart disappear
and then the phone rings and its time
for a whole new song (just put in a dime)

a smilin' boy vibrates a message
of hope and doom and expectation
while the old man sadly drifts away
without saying anything really
with only curses of his situation
and then you wanna break him into little pieces

the waves they come and everything flowers
leaving a void where used to be
and the void fill up with an instant
make me shudder it's the

pass him round for them to eat cause
he is just a pile of little pieces
made of crumbs and pictures of small children.


"thanks for accepting us as people and loving us and thank you for kissing me on the mouth many days ago when I was very sad in Amsterdam."
Track Name: empty heart
i love the way you look like doris day
when you wake up in the morning
i love the way that my shoes stay tied
even when i stay out late

but i've just got an empty heart
and i just don't know what could fill it
but your soul is a good start
so i hope i've got your attention



uneven bricks on the sidewalks
you gotta watch your step
six statues, some with missing arms
awful. hellenistic.

ya read and ya read and what do you learn
still got an empty heart
ya eat and ya eat and you get real full
still got an empty heart
ya kiss and ya kiss and ya stay up late talkin
still got an empty heart
(silent call)
still got an empty heart

Track Name: real hangdog
sellin cigarettes to children
make him feel like a disney villain
and if he listens church of lazlo
he'll feel like he's gonna throw up

holidays were never his forte
he startin stuff with all his family
and every year is just as crazy
so you can't really call him lazy, can you?

----

I think it's you who's thoughts are wrong
and you're the real hangdog
and itccontraollock cotchoh
but it's a pale imitation of the summer months

he says he wants to be fannin
feels like he was meant for it
and he can't made it don't made it
it's not worth making a song about

radio - can't make it - telephone - zerone
Track Name: lets have kids
everybody shows you smiling
everything says you've done
and that's a great thing for all of us really.
it's a great thing for everyone

write it all down with you and
you're gonna make a small kid
he gonna not know which ways to move
and he's gonna find a way to break
your neck is gonna snap in two pieces

(i need something new,
i need something nice)

oh lets have kids
oh lets have kids
me and you

(you should really give up smoking
and i should stop being such a freaking queer)
halfway gone, he can see both sides
and with goin back and forth a-miles
i wish everything could turn out right for everyone
but if it can only be me, you know
i'll pick myself and love her forever oh-ohhh
Track Name: e.e. cummings
well, i don't know much about e.e. cummings,
but i'm still learning about him or her,
yeah, i don't wanna seem like those other dummies,
so i'm getting up to date on my literature, you know?

well, i didn't learn all that stuff in high school
so i've gotta do a bit of catchin up, i guess
sittin at the side of the neighborhood pool
trying to read, no i'm not given up

E-E-C-U-M-M-I-N-G-S
ill love you, hold you, never think about the rest
E-E-C-U-M-M-I-N-G-S
with my head on your shoulder and my hands on yr chest

i don't know much about e.e. cummings,
but i bet they must a been a romantic poet
bought the collection from over at S----'s
