This cat is a pig has a girl who's a dog but thinks she's a fox The pig is a snake Who pontificates Harken, he's blessed The fox is a mess A community chest Yeah, she gets around Her face is a cake and when she gets baked it melts to a frown They take pictures of each other taking pix of one another There's some worms with no brains who come out when it rains And they squirm on the ground til the birds come around It summons the brood, putting chicks in the mood A hawk sees the flock and swoops in on a hen Dressing smart for one another, so they can undress each other The weasel in mink always says what he thinks till the skunk made a stink The Rodents attack but the Varmints fight back and fur starts to fly Caught in the brawl, the dog tries to call out for the cat Diving into the fray, he pulls her away He just saved the day They take pictures of each other taking pix of one another

Three thousand meters below the surface is my home The common jelly fish, and several macro-organisms We have a saying here, where light becomes a memory "Your eyes adjust quite nicely after a couple of years." Of course you know the ocean scene, squids a-floating by Hidden beaks and tentacle feets and little tiny jelly eyes They have a purpose, you know, a reason to stay alive They're the food of viperfish or Chauliodus macouni Dive, dive with me Check out this submersibility Breathe, breathe with me From a tank, while we sink Into the sea Deeper I sink, and pitcher it's black, the outer lights are activated Illuminating a world which has never been illuminated A sweeping forest of giant tube worms fills my eyes And there dart about one thousand Chambered Nautili With a swish, a Grenadier Fish bites a little glowy thing It's violently slain by an angler, Melanocetus johnsoni Here's a interesting specimen, Vampyroteuthis infernalis That means the Vampire Squid from Hell Dive, dive with me Check out this submersibility Breathe, breathe with me From a tank, while we sink Into the sea Dive, dive with me Check out this submersibility Breathe, breathe with me From a tank, while we sink Into the sea

You can paint this bathroom stall Mask the writing on this wall Hide the slanders once here etched Cover up the dicks we've sketched Take away our dirty jokes Veil our log of chicken-chokes Shroud our tales of getting laid Clean the bogies, eunich-made But no matter how you strain All your efforts end in vain Every word will be rewritten Long as man still sits here shittin' Every word will be rewritten Long as man still sits here shittin' Every word will be rewritten

The Finger of Justice rises up and grasps the loaded steel The bullet that pierces evil men and forces them to yield Finger, ride Ride Finger, ride Ride I robbed a bank the other day and killed a banker in my way No one knew that it was me because I wore a mask, you see The sheriff looks me in the eyes and asks me twice and I deny it No one knows what I have done Way out west, beneath the burning sun But at night The voices in my head Whisper in my ear I fear the voices in my head The Finger of Justice rises up into my room again Forever it haunts the dreams of every mortal man of sin Finger, ride Ride Finger, ride Ride Finger, ride Ride Finger, ride Ride

Up close, doesn't think Dennistown any thing I got a thing as lemonlike as Eagleflight with broken pipes You think you're going unaffected Dealing irresponsibly Lost and lonely Lady And her bowl of gimpy vines and me Handy dandy Willy nilly Handy dandy Willy nilly I think this willy nilly Hussein DVD Will take the ring to Woodworth This suit is from the grocery Foggy glibly, bible baby Abortion Ocean, Bracketville I didn't get either uncle Soundmen went to music mill I hope you're picked, and make it stick Like palates of an asian girl Have a day, everyday Laser like a mangrove pearl Talking of my face Handy dandy leap boot Sandersville loveland A bullard grumbled skeet shoot Leilah go low, Like John Trambino's Uncorking, litter-thinking Scantily drab albinos The rest is for the best The best are on the Death Star That battlebrooke Neville Stamp With tears for fears and tongues of tar

She put me in a voodoo dollhouse And she tied me to a tiny plastic chair Which she keeps inside her voodoo dollhouse With my photo and a locket of my hair And I think that it might be a curse Cause she’s stolen my heart and she put it in her purse And I don't think that I am ever coming home Lights out, candles burning My mind is racing, tummy turning Sitting on needles and on pins I hold my breath as she walks in I never really wanted To be an independent person Or in my dreams imagined I’d be involved in such perversion Forcefed twisted tainted love Dripping down in a mist from above Darkness surrounds me Her arms are wrapped around me She egged me on She made an omelette She made my soul sick Spiritual vomit She put me in a voodoo dollhouse And she tied me to a tiny plastic chair Which she keeps inside her voodoo dollhouse With my photo and a locket of my hair And she tells me that I might be the one But I’m not about to argue when she's pointing the gun And I don't think that I am ever coming home She put me in a voodoo dollhouse And she tied me to a tiny plastic chair Which she keeps inside her voodoo dollhouse With my photo and a locket of my hair She melted my mind just like a svengali She molded me into her own voodoo dolly And I don't think that I am ever coming home And I’m burning it down, down, down Down, down, down, down Down, down, down Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down

I'm not a mind reader A human party favor Go check the parking meter or move your car For your consideration You deal with your frustration By seeking approbation I think they towed your car I fear an angry bee Someone else made mad at me I fear an angry bee Someone else made mad at me He walks away from harm and the impending swarm Capsized the raft again Scuttled your craft again Your polystyrene friends will take you home Goodbye, good luck, good night You're gonna miss your flight You'd do that out of spite Like when you lost your car I fear an angry sea that the Gods brought down on me I fear an angry sea crushing waves are drowning me I see a monstrous form in the impending storm

new year, new tour same songs, the same four our music's stuck in limbo sustained by high school bimbos the drummer just quit sick of preteen bullshit our t-shirts on children who lack the breasts to fill them no one wants to hang with you when you're bald at 32 no one wants to be your friend when your youth is at an end life is gonna make you frown and then you're 6 feet underground you're half the man your father was life is tough and homework sucks! My credit's abysmal My love life… dismal Taking prescriptions for my gambling addiction my fridge is barren just like my ex-wife Karen libido waning with each pound that I'm gaining no reason left to be alive when you're pushing 45 and no one wants to be with you when your life is half way through life is gonna get you down as the green leaves turn to brown you're half the man you used to be life is fucked! and homework sucks

There's no more room in our skeleton crew! Avast ye, barkeep, tis our last night ashore Will our last piece of gold afford us one more? A flagon of ale before we set sail And a bottle of rum for me and me chum Shiver me timbers and rattle me bones Untangle the cables and plug in the 'phones Go string up the axes and tune them up tight It sounds like we'll be first to go out tonight There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few (it's just us few) It's just us few (it's just us two) There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few (it's just us few) It's just us two (it's just us two) There's no more room in our skeleton crew We shout through the tempest without sound or sight Though deafened by silence and blinded by light We'll weather the storm without losing face and vow that we'll never return to this place There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few (it's just us few) It's just us few (it's just us two) There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few (it's just us few) It's just us two (it's just us two) There's no more room in our skeleton crew We stay at our posts though the sun she doth roast Though the wind she doth bite, we'll do what is right Until ravenous gulls pluck the eyes from our skulls We dance with delight though there's no end in sight We do what we can, we love what we do We do what we must to steer our ship true Though our bones turn to dust, our cannons may rust Oh, the legends they'll tell of our skeleton crew There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few (it's just us few) It's just us few (it's just us two) There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few (it's just us few) It's just us two (it's just us two) There's no more room in our skeleton crew There's no more room in our skeleton crew It's just us few It's just us two
