SICK       Real Audio Sample       Windows Media Sample
You've gotta be into something sick
And I wouldn't change a minute what you did
And I said you've gotta be into something sick
Well I think I got the message in your eyes
When you left me without thought of compromise
And I said you've gotta be into something sick
Well it's only last night that I lost my mind
I heard myself and the bang behind
It sucks real bad to be afraid
I'll carry that heart 'til it can be laid
You've gotta be into something sick
And I wouldn't ask your mother what you did
'cause she'll say you've gotta be into something sick
Well I know I got the message in your eyes
When you left me without thought of compromise
And I said you've gotta be into something sick
You've gotta be into something sick
And I wouldn't trust that woman with that kid
'cause he'll say you've gotta be into something
I've gotta be into something
You've gotta be into something sick
Well it's only last night that I lost my mind
I heard myself and the bang behind
It sucks real bad to be afraid
I'll carry that heart 'til it can be laid
And I'll always wonder
But never know
You save my soul
Save my soul
I'll never know
If you could save my soul
You never know

RAINBOW      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
Last winter when you sold me
I burned myself down slowly
It's in the dirty looks
Counting down
Praying for something you might have told me
I'll take your looks
I'll read your books
I'll take your house
I'll take your place
I'll break your face
I'll take you out tonight
And I don't want your rainbow buggin' out
No evidence will hold me
When I decide to go free
You won't be too upset
Tied behind late again
'cause no one else could mold me
I'll take your looks
I'll read your books
I'll take your house
I'll take your place
I'll break your face
I'll take you out tonight
And I don't want your rainbow buggin' out
I hear those voices calling me
A record that can't be believed
Agreements are just empty things
They can be
Just like me
THE FOREIGN DIME      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
Different signs
I'm aware I'm King Carl
Throw my work in the closet
I am asking for the immediate attention
Of a girl without an erasable tongue
She shows me all of her senses
I am intelligent asshole and not myself
I will not waste the foreign dime
Too regal now
Seventeen hours of those adult film questions
Hold my arms
I'm about to imitate
Several kinds of adults in a jar high
Crouch and bring about the impossible day
Decide who lives on the car phone
I will take my own hide to a serious place
I will not waste the foreign dime
Too regal now
The wounded hate
The sun will shine
'til we know how
Am I here
Am I alive
What's getting set to happen
Until you hire something
I tell you hire
But you required that pain
A. R. O. M. A. W. R.
I will not play their stupid part
They call me out
I will not waste the foreign dime
Too regal now
You can't debate
You can't retry
Be glad we had that night a while
But you behaved poor and all
You leave my hair corridor
The ladder burned you right in time
JEALOUSY
You can't love anyone that you want to leave
Peel me down four shells
I keep the board right outside
The challis is dry
As dry as your bones
Maybe I'll sleep inside
Try to take
Finalize
Me and my jealousy
Brought a sign
Won't be here when son arrives
As black as the sky
Demanding your lives
Dope me second time
Bury you for my crimes
Me and my jealousy
Brought aside
Won't be here when sun arrive
I can show you what it's like
But I can't tell you what it means
ALWAYS HIGH
I don't know what it is about you
You're choking on your own design
And if I ever have to doubt you
It would be bad
Don't take me by a bank or houses
You know that I am always high
The semen in his hair and couches
He's dripping like an open vein
The lesson learned in little sections
But still on time
Don't mention this to any cops 'cause
They'll know that I am always high
On the way to start a fire
Doesn't matter who gets burned
Sure do stink of frying matter
Should I not have had a cup full
Take a look at the dawn of Saturn
I won't say it 'cause I know you're gonna take me high
You know that I am always high
I could I could save on air
I'm saving on air
And I'll learn about AIDS
I'm saving on air away
I save I save by day I day I day I
I'm talking about popping the canon all the time
I'll save on air
I'll learn about AIDS yeah
I'll save on air away

MAYBE      Real Audio Sample      Window Media Sample
Maybe I should have told you
Maybe I couldn't hide my hurt
Maybe I'm all updated
Maybe I should have changed my shirt
Maybe you're quite the quandary
Maybe I'll go upstairs for awhile
Maybe I'm all updated
Maybe I'll hide behind my smile
Maybe I'll stay behind it
I couldn't feed anyone anything right or wrong
When I feel my energy vanishing
That'd be terrible
Maybe I am contagious
Maybe your phone ain't on the line
Maybe I'm almost perfect
Maybe I'm just a waste of life
Maybe it's always moving
Maybe it's always stay in line
Maybe I'm all updated
Maybe I'm not afraid to die
Maybe I'm never sorry
I couldn't feel anything anywhere right or wrong
When I fear my energy vanishing
And you're responsible

B.F.C.      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
Big fat cow grazin' in the grass
Got a terrible fever and a very big ass
Don't know the difference between rubbin' and a scratch oh no
Big fat cow lickin' off the ground
Moo to yourself 'cause you like the sound
Smells like the shit of garbage hound oh yeah
You are the home of freedom
Big fat cow livin' in the past
Gonna pray every day that the memory lasts
Stars and stripes are overcast uh huh
Big fat cow color TV has burned in the image of what you should be
Totally glad you aren't like me oh yeah
You are the home of freedom
Not concerned with the image you're projecting to outsiders
5 DAY WEEKEND      Real Audio Sample      Windows Media Sample
I took a 5 day weekend
I left myself out rotting
But still my heart keeps beating
For what I haven't gotten
I cooked a load of wanting
Outside you hear me bleeding
Another holy fountain
Could not abide my healing
You notice what I got then
I think I know this feeling
I never felt outrageous
I took a 5 day weekend
I never knew my neighbors
They see me when I'm weeping
Don't ever ask no favors
Don't even want to meet them
Don't ever hold your hard in
Don't ever bust no feelings
You bit a poison apple
I took a 5 day weekend
I had a good old car crash
I sang I'm Only Sleeping
Nobody saw my old valve
'Cause everyone was freaking
You notice what I got then
I think I know this feeling
I went to bed outrageous
I took a 5 day weekend
