Track Name: why are you beating and battering me?
let us love
we are all
children of
adam and eve

we have all
been oppressed
we have all
been aggrieved

cause it's always been the same
since abel and cain
and when i feel the pain
i remember who to blame

why are you beating and battering me?
i'm your family
i'm your family
why are you beating and battering me?
i'm your family
i'm your family

heavy chains
burning flames
suffering under
your reign

what to do
i guess you
think that life's
just a game

but it's growing cold outside
and the hour's getting late
better lock yourself inside
your heavy guarded gates
Track Name: cosmic muggery
i am afraid
of the men in my dreams
their big buggy eyes
and their tiny bodies

i lie all alone
on my bed in my sleep
until the men
from the sky visit me

they took me on their ship
and headed for the sun
they stopped and stared at it
oh what was going on

and then they turned to me
and then one of them said
"if you make one wrong move
your solar system's dead, dead, dead!"

i lost track of time
could be days, could be weeks
it seemed that the men
wanted something from me

...
Track Name: vine street
count your dough, you got enough?
park beneath the viaduct
for something nice, for something sweet
get it here down on vine street

you're gonna take a magic trip
you're just living by the drip
of that honey nectar treat
but it's become so bittersweet

shady guys in s.u.v.s
looking for the washy-washies
lots of coke and lots of weed
lots of h and lots of speed

you're going on a magic trip
you're just living by the drip
just a moment of relief
but it's become so bittersweet

lots of coke and lots of weed
lots of h and lots of speed
how much you got, how much you need?
get it here down on vine street

lose yourself and lose your needs
the feeling that you can't believe
you lost your soul, you lost your friends
and now you're sleeping on a bench

lots of coke and lots of weed
lots of h and lots of speed...
Track Name: bob dylan's two thousand two hundred and first nightmare
you felt like you had to party
how you feeling?
you may have swallowed large quantities
now you're reeling

it's like the feeling of falling
falling deeper
it's started hitting you harder
it is not a good feeling

two thousand two hundred first nightmare
it's the worst nightmare
two thousand two hundred first nightmare
it's the worst nightmare

i'm standing here in my underwear
everyone stares
i'm just trying to get some air
and they're all there

it's all my repressed horrors
come to greet me
you're all just scary monsters
gonna eat me

two thousand two hundred first nightmare
it's the worst nightmare
two thousand two hundred first nightmare
it's the worst nightmare
Track Name: tv from a million lightyears away
well i can't see it
and i can't hear it
but i can feel it
and it's arrived here today

you think it's fun
or just funny
it's tv from
a million lightyears away

go flick through the channels
and find something nice
sit back and relax
and shut off your mind

the devil is near
it's coming in waves
the devil is on his way

hype and spin
get all sucked in
and justify
all the choices you've made

or turn it off
and turn away
open the door
and find a beautiful day

at first it seems nice
and everything's fine
but sooner or later
it poisons your mind

the devil is near
it's coming in waves
the devil is on his way
Track Name: marching again / munching again
marching again
munching again

guess who's down the street
guess who's moving in next door
guess who's coming to dinner
always eating more and more

seems the only way to kill them
is to shoot them in the head
or bash their brains out
just make sure they're really dead

guess who's down the stairs
guess who's knocking down your door
guess who's gnawing your leg off
always eating more and more
Track Name: far out in the sea
i've been to london, england
i've been to rome
but it's the open ocean
i call my home

i like the feeling
of sailing free
the breeze has carried me so
far out in the sea

out on the mainland
money talks and people run
their disposition tells me
there's something wrong

but if you're drowning
i'll toss a rope
and you can climb aboard
upon my lonely boat
Track Name: falling in the mall fountain
you don't get hugs
you've got bedbugs
better spray them all dead

people push you
they say "fuck you"
when they get in your way

re-baptismed
falling in, falling in
falling in the mall fountain

i have freed my soul
listening to rock and roll
i feel free from sin

it is dirty
in the subway
you are in new york city

take the "a" train
take the "d" train
no there is no escape

re-baptismed
falling in, falling in
falling in the mall fountain

i feel free from sin
falling in, falling in
falling in the mall fountain
Track Name: lsd
i had some fun
at a party
where everyone
took lsd

we're feeling good
we're feeling fine
cause i'm an orange
and you're a lime

you oughta try yourself some lsd
i'm sure you'll have a great time

participate and become integrated
into a greater mind

i'm feeling good
i'm feeling strange
cause lsd
affects your brain

my mind's at ease
i feel released
well normal life
is such a tease

i see the sun rise in the sky with the moon
i wonder what the day brings

i'm noticing the clouds the grass and the trees
the unity of all things
Track Name: a sausage in the mouth
some eggs and curds and whey
it's how i start the day
but i can't go outside
to play

they dropped a bomb
was way too strong
now everything
is dead and gray

we're on the brink
lost all our strength
nuked and decayed
wasted away

oh, what do you yanks say
you always get your way
"a sausage in the mouth"
hooray!

they dropped a bomb
was way too strong
now everything
is dead and gray

we're on the brink
lost all our strength
nuked and decayed
wasted away
