Don't Blow Your Mind

I said one day I'd find the game
Well now you know I'm not insane
You tried to take me for a ride
Now all you feel is suicide

We're two of a kind
Take what you can find
But don't blow your mind away

You led me to another life
Of work and pain and sacrifice
I broke away from you somehow
And look who's goin' through it now

We're two of a kind
Take what you can find
But don't blow your mind away

So now you know the reason why
I'm laughing here and why you cry
'Cause you don't mean a thing no more
And I'm just like I was before

Lay Down and Die, Goodbye

Well I pray in my final hour
For the people who yet must die
For the liars and the robbers
And the cheating crimes
Who tortured the deadly times

Well I've written home to mother
The ink ran from my tears
I said "Momma, momma, oh please.
Tell me why you brought me here"

Well I'll hang on another minute
But really I have to go
If you ever want to see me again
You know what you can do

Well I've written home to mother
The ink ran from my tears
I said "Momma, momma, oh please.
Tell me why you brought me here"

Nobody Likes Me (demo)

Nobody likes me
It's all my fault
Nobody likes me
Nobody likes me

Oh yes we all like you
We like you a lot
Yes we all like you
Yes we all like you

We have no time
Never ever get a call from you
We have no dime

Oh yes you do
Oh no we don't
Oh yes you do
Oh no we don't
Oh yes you do
Oh no we don't
Oh yes you do
Oh no we don't
Yes! No! Yes! No! (etc.)

Never call, never write
Yes we do always try
Make me cry all the night
Sorry we made you cry
Make me mad, Make me sad
Tell me true, what can I do?
Way too late can't cant make up
All the late has built up

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

All right we all hate you
We hate you a lot
We hate all your family
We hate your dog Spot
Even Spot?
Yes

Levity Ball (Studio Version)

I got my invitation to the annual levity ball
Seeing the location was within the mirrored room
Walking in my room I found that I had nothing to find
I got into my evening wear and left my clothes behind

I sat down on a stairway, seven hours at a time
Writing all of this poetry that I knew would never rhyme
The memory I knew I must have had when I came in
Was off somewhere in places where I`d never ever been

Then in came a cake all decorated in my name
With four paper brown candles a-all spelling out this name
The clock was passing out from time to time I saw it all
Beginning of the ending of my first Levity Ball

Reflected

Look upstanding with your head held high
You will be reflected
You look outstanding with your eyes in disguise
Just beyond your mask-qes

Holy, Hollywood (he), it's divine
I'm surely glad, I'm surely all the time
And even though I'm, you will always hear

Very rarely worry upmost constantly
Could you be receptive
Our life's outstanding in a shower please
Wet my skids a plenty

Baby, what a day all over town
I'm surely glad, I'm surely all around
And even since I knew, it's all so clear

You will be reflected
You will be reflected
You will be reflected
You will be reflected, reflected

Yeah...

Refrigerator Heaven

(screams)

I'm freezing, I'm frozen, I'm icicle blue
(So low, low cool)
Cyber, neurotic, technicians imbue
(So low, low cool)
I've been admitted to Refrigerator Heaven
Until they discover the cure for cancer, I'm low
Refrigerator Heaven
So low, Refrigerator Heaven

I'm ice packed, I'm hand-stashed, I'm waiting for you
I'm older and younger, preserved in a tomb
I've been admitted to Refrigerator Heaven
I feel like I (told you a heart)
I won't get back 'till the sun sets down on the moon
Won't get back 'till m' sun sets down on the moon

(screams)

Caught In A Dream

Well I'm runnin through the world
with a gun in my back
tryin' to catch a ride in a Cadillac
Thought that I was livin'
but you can't really tell
been tryin' to get a whiff of that success smell

You know I need a houseboat and I need a plane
I need a butler and a trip to Spain
I need everything
the world owes me
I tell that to myself
and I agree

I'm caught in a dream
So What!
You don't know what I'm goin' through
I'm right in between
So I'll
I'll just play along with you

Well I'm runnin' through the world
with a gun in my back
tryin' to catch a ride in that Cadillac
thought I was livin'
but you can't never tell
what I thought was heaven
turned out to be hell

Whoa-o-oh
When you see me with a smile on my face
Whoa-o-oh
Then you'll know I'm a mental case

I'm caught in a dream
So what!
I don't know what I'm going through
I'm right in between
So I'll
I'll just play along with you

Whoa-o-oh Oh
Whoa-o-oh Oh
Whoa-o-oh

I'm Eighteen

Lines form on my face and hands
Lines form from the ups and downs
I'm in the middle without any plans
I'm a boy and I'm a man

I'm eighteen
and I don't know what I want
Eighteen
I just don't know what I want
Eighteen
I gotta get away
I gotta get out of this place
I'll go runnin' in outer space
Oh yeah

I got a
baby's brain and an old man's heart
Took eighteen years to get this far
Don't always know what I'm talkin' about
Feels like I'm livin in the middle of doubt
Cause I'm

Eighteen
I get confused every day
Eighteen
I just don't know what to say
Eighteen
I gotta get away

Whoa
Lines form on my face and my hands
Lines form on the left and right
I'm in the middle
the middle of life
I'm a boy and I'm a man
I'm eighteen and I LIKE IT
Yes I like it
Oh I like it
Love it
Like it
Love it
Eighteen!
Eighteen!
Eighteen!
Eighteen and I LIKE IT

Is It My Body

What have I got
that makes you want to love me
Now is it my body
Someone I might be
Somethin' inside me

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

What does it take
to get inside of your mind
Give me a break, yeah, yeah
and take a chance for the very first time

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am

What have I got
That makes you want to love me
Now is it my body
Or someone I might be
Or somethin' inside me

You better tell me
Tell me
It's really up to you
Have you got the time to find out
Who I really am
Oh..

Ballad Of Dwight Fry

[Little girl]
Mommy where's daddy?
He's been gone for so long.
Do you think he'll ever come home?

I was gone for fourteen days
I coulda been gone for more
Held up in the intensive care ward
Lyin' on the floor
I was gone for all those days
But I, was not all alone
I made friends with a lot of people
In the danger zone

See my lonely life unfold
I see it every day
See my only mind explode
Since I've gone away

I think I lost some weight there
and I, I'm sure I need some rest
Sleepin don't come very easy
In a straight white vest
Should like to see that little children
She's only four years old.. old
I'd give her back all of her play things
even, even the ones I stole

See my lonely life unfold
I see it everyday
See my lonely mind explode
When I've gone insane

I wanna get out of here
I wanna get out of here
I, I've gotta, I've gotta get out of here
I, I gotta get out of here
I, I gotta get out of here
IgottagetoutahereIgottagetoutahereIgottagetoutahere
Ya gotta let me out of here
Let me outta her
etc

See my lonely life unfold
I see it everyday
See my lonely mind explode
Blown up in my face

I grabbed my hat and I got my coat
and I, I ran into the street
I saw a man that was choking there
I guess he couldn't breathe
Said to myself this is very strange
I'm glad it wasn't me
But now I hear those sirens callin'
and so I am not free
I didn`t wanna be
I didn`t wanna be
I didn`t wanna be

See my lonely life unfold
(I didn`t wanna be)
I see it every day
(Leave me alone
I didn`t wanna be
Don't touch me!)
See my lonely mind explode
When I've gone Insane

Under My Wheels

The telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
Anticipating fun
I'm driving right up to you, babe
I guess that you couldn't see, yeah yeah
But you under my wheels
Why don't you let me be

'Cause when you call me on the telephone
Saying "take me to the show"
And then I say, honey, I just can't go
Old lady's sick and I can't leave her home

The telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
Yeah yeah
I got you under my wheels

Telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
Anticipating fun
I'm driving right up to you, babe
I guess you that couldn't see, yeah yeah
But you were under my wheels, honey
Why don't you let me be, yeah yeah
I got you under my wheels, yeah
I got you under my wheels, wheels, wheels
Got you, got you got you....
(ad lib to fade)

Be My Lover

She struts into the room, wellI don't know her
But with a magnifying glance I just sort of look her over
We have a drink or two, well, maybe three
And then suddenly she starts telling me her life story
She says

Baby, if you wanna be my lover
You better take me home
'Cause it's a long, long way to paradise
And I'm still on my own

Told her that I came from Detroit City
And I played guitar in a long-haired rock and roll band
She asked me why the singers name was Alice
I said listen, baby, you really wouldn't understand
And I said

Baby, if you wanna be my lover
You better take me home
'Cause it's a long, long way to paradise
And I'm still on my own
On my own

Oh baby, if you wanna be my lover
You better take me home
'Cause it's a long long way to paradise
And I'm still on my own
Ooooooh

Desperado

I'm a gambler and I'm a runner
But you knew that when you lay down
I'm a picture of ugly stories
I'm a killer and I'm a clown

Step into the street by sundown
Step into your last goodbye
You're a target just by living
Twenty dollars will make you die

I wear lace and I wear black leather
My hands are lightning upon my gun
My shots are clean and my, my shots are final
My shots are deadly and when it's done

You're as stiff as my smoking barrel
You're as dead as a desert night
You're a notch and I'm a legend
You're at peace and I must hide

Tell me where the hell I'm going
Let my bones fall in the dust
Can you hear that ghost that's calling
As my Colt begins to rust
In the dust

I'm a killer, I'm a clown
I'm a priest that's gone to town

Dead Babies

Little Betty ate a pound of aspirin
She got them from the shelf upon the wall
Betty's mommy wasn't there to save her
She didn't hear her little baby call
(Waaah!)

Dead babies can take care of themselves
Dead babies can't take things off the shelf
Well we didn't want you anyway
Lalala-la, lalala-la, la la la

Daddy is an agrophile in Texas
Mommy's on the bar most every night
Little Betty's sleeping in the graveyard
Living there in burgundy and white

Dead babies can take care of themselves
Dead babies can't take things off the shelf
Well we didn't love you anyway
Lalala-la, lalala-la, la la la

Goodbye, Little Betty
Goodbye, Little Betty
So long, Little Betty
So long, Little Betty
Betty, so long

Dead babies can take care of themselves
Dead babies can't take things off the shelf
Well we didn't need you anyway
Lalala-la, lalala-la, la la la

Goodbye, Little Betty

(Order in the court! Order in this court room!
Order! Order in the court! Order! Will you have order!...)

Killer

What did I do to deserve such a fate
I didn't really want to get involved in this thing
Someone handed me this gun and I
I gave it everything
Yeah, I gave it everything

I came into this life
Looked all around
I saw just what I liked and took what I found
Nothing came easy
Nothing came free
Nothing came all until they came after me

Yeah, yeah

Aaahhhhhhhh, aaahhhhhhhhhhhhh

(What did I do to deserve such a fate?)
(I gave it everything now I need to escape)
(Someone near me, calling my name)
(I gave it everything)
(I gave it everything - sigh)

(Latin phrases/blessing?)

Call It Evil

(1...2...3...)

I've been around watching little late shows
Drink a lot of beer
Like playing cards with my friends

Call it evil
Call it pain
It goes knock, knock, knock-knock-knock-knock, on my door
It goes knock, knock, knock-knock-knock-knock, on my door

3 o'clock in the morning, call it evil
3 o'clock in the morning, call it evil

Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door, Yeah!
Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door
(unintelligable).
It goes knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door

I'm saying softly in the back of my head
"When you try to be crazy?"
And it's bugging me, bugging me to death (?).

Call it evil
Call it pain
It goes knock, knock, knock-knock-knock-knock, on my door
It goes knock, knock, knock-knock-knock-knock, come on
Knock-knock-knock-knock, one more
Knock-knock-knock-knock

3 o'clock in the morning, call it evil
3 o'clock in the morning, call it evil

Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door
Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door
Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door
Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, on my door

Gutter Cat Vs The Jets

I went out cating, pussyfootin' around
'Till the break of dawn found me knocked out flat on my head
Some feline Kitty waved her tail my way
I just had to stay, I couldn't get the blood off my hands

She made my eyes bug out
Her tail stand up
And I ain't even in heat for a month

(Meow)

House cat
You really got it made
Sleepin' all night
A purrfect delight of day

Some feline beauty
Waved her tail my way
And I just had to stay
I couldn't get the blood off my bed

She made my eyes bug out
Her tail stand up
And I ain't even in heat for a month

(Meow...mrreow...meow! Meow! Meow!)

Some bad cats from 4th Street come down to our alley
Well we say that's cool, but just stay away from me and my boys
Eyes clash and claws slash and green-eyed fur goes flyin'
Midnight, Catfight, Neckbite, Die

When you're a Jet
You're a Jet all the way
From your first cigarette
Till your last dyin' day
When you're a Jet
Let 'em do what they can
Little boy, you got friends
You're a family man
The Jets are in gear
They're always well-respected
You're never alone
When company's expected
You're well-protected

Here come the Jets
Like a bat out of hell
Somone gets in our way
Someone don't look so well
When you're a Jet
You - Stay - A - Jet

School's Out (Single Version)

Well we got no choice
All the girls and boys
Makin' all that noise
'Cause they found new toys
Well we can't salute ya, can't find a flag
If that don't suit ya that's a drag

School's out for summer
School's out forever
School's been blown to pieces

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher's dirty looks

Well we got no class
And we got no principles
And we got no innocence
We can't even think of a word that rhymes

School's out for summer
School's out forever
My school's been blown to pieces

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher's dirty looks
Out for summer
Out 'till fall
We might not go back at all

School's out forever
School's out for summer
School's out with fever
School's out completely
