you don't want me on Halloween if you don't look like me you're not a human being I don't want you in my TV her people bled red, white, and blue since June of 1962 I will, I can't, I will, I can't, I will, I can't I'm built to last but designed to fail I think we made a wrong turn in Albuquerque a fridge-ful of women and a room full of clues do you know originality comes with a case of the blues? Her people bled red, white, and blue don't budge when they relocate you

beginning with the end in mind as we sing our "yeahs" and "la-la-la"'s with deafening applause just because the painter paints with precision the rapist lures away inhibition and finds a penny on the ground and a face that speaks no sound paint me a portrait of original sin and intuition of the lady within close your eyes and hold on tight behold! the imagination's tragic plight a starving artist with nothing to eat middle age claiming defeat all the world's a stage tonight lulled to sleep by fluorescent light

let's get the prom queen pregnant and drown the children in their own tears let's hide beneath the bleachers you fucked my mind and nine months later I had a thought I thought I wore protection always ignore what you don't understand always ignore what you can't understand always ignore what you won't understand always ignore what you'll never understand a bike with no wheels is called a squirrel a bike with no wheels cannot fly I read the Bible it said God is real I read a B-B-B-Batman comic Batman's real. Batman's real!

as I put this pen to paper and piece together these words you'll know that it's obvious to see that I'm a shark swimming in a sea of people and your blood is barking for me three songs and then we're gone and then you will never see us again nicotine and crumpled paper on the floor and an empty box of Kleenex sometimes fantasy is all you need I know who my friends are the pixels burn my eyes the pixels burn my eyes and it's no surprise three songs and then we're gone and then you will never see us again and all the days you saved all the Sundays you took back I'll ink this deal, break the seal, I'm selling out three songs and then we're gone and then you will never see us again.

the master plan is not done yet so what you see is what you get the blueprints are in disarray but that's okay, they like it that way crunching numbers, pushing paper saving up nuts for the winter with credit cards and caution tape we'll all stand around with our mouths agape silicone to fill the big tit on the hill the fire's dying down; shovel in another mill' we're going to pull out all the stops tappin' to the flappin' of a million flip-flops communicate, reciprocate marinate, masticate, masturbate I'd be punctual, but it's much too late you're going to meet the pizza man things are going to be much better, man you're going to meet the pizza man

Thinkmint 02:04
these thoughts you cannot save the sweetest thoughts can put you in an early grave these thoughts are not for sale a preacher's daughter races up the Scoville scale these thoughts are not for sale these thighs are not for sale it's all been put to rest I've got this lump of coal in my chest these thoughts are not for sale these thighs are not for sale

is this a moment stuck in time or is it a reason to fall out of line? bring in the medication it's an adaptation to what we've become visualize; dematerialize based upon the things we've learned and flags we've burned watch it all come crashing down and laid to waste based upon the things we've learned and flags we've burned watch it all come crashing down with great haste but, he'll never relinquish the crown is this a moment stuck in time or is it a reason to fall out of line? empty your mind; sacrifice your socks these thoughts are not for sale these thoughts are not for sale these thighs are not for sale! open your eyes try not to swallow sacrifice your socks try not to let your head fall out

Eodium 04:55
once I get started I know I'll be fine I just need like, the first line all music is sacred; you know that's a lie it's all regurgitated; looks like pizzer pie now that I'm started, things could go wrong and if you don't like it, you can sug that dong our worlds are empty; they're all filled with shit if you don't like it just pit eodium I need some solace; relief for my brain I'll have some Fast Lane to constrict my veins we pretend things are okay; we go out all night but our world is ending and we don't see the light someone take me away from here things in my life just aren't clear

raised on red meat and hatred douse it all in Vaseline lights, camera, penetrate! gone downhill since age eighteen is there a foot in my mouth? open your mouth! hey, it can happen to you there's nothing about it you can do open mouth, insert foot open mouth; your juices are my paint! gonna start a revolution broadcasted from the basement gonna start a revolution tonight take the chance of a lifetime never going to forget it but in a year you will regret it she's digging her own grave she'd sing herself to sleep but her throat can't take any more she's digging her own grave expand your mind; expand your holes your juices are my paint
