Track Name: Brains
Oh we'll sink deep, down to the bottom of the ocean, deep if what we think, what we know is to be shown, oh forever, forever. Took us a while to shoot our brains, right out of our heads to shoot our brains, right out of our heads to shoot our brains. We are right outta our heads...
Track Name: Remember
Oh Hey do you remember when we used to play? Outside, outside of Charlie's yard. Oh Hey! Do you remember when we used to say? That we, that we, would never die. Oh hey the sun is setting on that day. Away...
Track Name: Mission Disposition
Tell it to someone who cares, to someone who will listen, to every little whiney word you say. Cheer up. It's just your disposition. It's you life's sole mission to make everyone as miserable as you can. Tell it, tell it to somebody who cares. Tell it to somebody who cares.
Track Name: So Long
Tick tock goes the clock at the back of the wall, while the boys get their kicks in the back of the stall, while the girls in the short skirts are having a ball, begging me to bend. It's been so long since I hit the bottle. So long since I've been in trouble. Hit the throttle all the way down to the bar, hit the bottle all the way down to the bar, hit the throttle all the way down to the car, hit the bottle all the way down to the car. Mess, mess, always messing up your hair with you 'do. Gotta be one cooler always better than you. Never gonna be, never gonna be your b. When ya gonna break?
Track Name: Night Terrors
Livin in the jungle where there ain't no sin I see the cobra's eyes. Wall of sound just sucks me in and I wonder where my mind has been..
Track Name: No Riots
We don't read, no. We don't read books anymore. They've become a thing of the past. We don't want more of your stupid literature. Let's burn books in every town! Oh it's just one spark, oh it's just one flame. Tell those people to place their blame! Oh hey no riots, just start small! Tell them all to stay at home! Why can't we watch more...tv? duh duh da du di da duh duh duh da du di da da dumb oh la da da du di du la di da dumb
Track Name: Skin & Bones
Every day I'm working for small pay, and every night, I just want to die. For this thing we call freedom, but freedom I'll never know. So in the meantime, I'll keep working till I'm skin n bones. Every day I sit and I pray, and every night I just want to die. For this thing we call justice, but justice I will never know. So in the meantime, I'll keep working till I'm skin n bones. In the meantime, Oh in the meantime, in the meantime...
Track Name: Ogre
No I won't be called a Sinner. No I won't be called a Fool. Leave the judgements to others who know not what they do, cause I won't no I won't play the games with you. No I won't be called a sinner. No I won't be called a fool. Because God is just an ugly Ogre taking over the world. There goes my dinner ready. She stole it with a gun and a knife. I don't know about this livin forever in this thing called paradise. Because God is just an ugly Ogre taking over the world. Livin in this tribulation, right about the time of Revelation. Don't know about this getting together. How are we gonna live as a nation if God is just an ugly Ogre taking over THE WORLD. Not gonna call me a sinner. Not gonna call me a saint. NO NO
Track Name: Ransom
There were days that I would go to sleep so I could dream, of yester years before everything just fell on me. There were days that I would pray that I could be with her on some sunny shore like the day that I was born. There has got to be more to life than this, I gave her my heart and she ripped it to bits. So Give me Ransom, Give me Ransom.
Track Name: Circus Freaks
Strange sounds and semi intelligible noises
