Hear the noise, ears are ringin' Think today that the birds stopped singing Wind don't know where to blow It's a hundred and one degrees of slow No faith no love no sex no drug no hope No religion could get us out of here We all know how up and down life is 60 punishing minutes 60 punishing minutes I waited 60 punishing minutes of hell Bumper to bumper, losing my drive Fading like old bones on the hillside Pollution, confusion fog up my head I take a deep breath, count to ten No twist no move no turn no groove No backing up, no situation Could be as sticky as this one here We all know how short life can be 60 punishing minutes 60 punishing minutes I waited 60 punishing minutes of hell No faith no love no sex no drug no hope No religion could get us out of here We all know how up and down life is

A princess in a pond of frogs She won't kiss any of them A goddess worshipped by the Gods She don't believe in any of them The essence of existence She pretends to know And watch the way things go A fortune made, a fortune lost She's got sixty cents left She's got thorns holding up her crown She rants and raves She rushes around But it's all right She's a little uptight She believes in love But she don't like him Unless he puts that red dress on She walks through the roses With a blue can of paint Cause she likes violets The essence of existence She pretends to know And watch the way things go A fortune made, a fortune lost She's got sixty cents left She's got thorns holding up her crown She rants and raves She rushes around But it's all right She's a little uptight

Psychometer 04:12
Got a reading, level in the red Don't tell me--voices in your head No one understands me No one gets it! Psychometer! Psychometer! Everyone's got thunder Can't keep it inside Everyone's got hunger Swallow your pride Got a reason, put it on the shelf Medication --you can soothe yourself Haven't got a good thing Don't want any help Psychometer! Psychometer! Everyone's got thunder Can't keep it inside Everyone's got hunger Swallow your pride You're such a hard nut You're cracking me up No way to know what You're such a fruitcake You leave a strange taste Let go, I've had enough Got mood swings Can't keep contained Burning narcissistic need Measured by the grain You don't know me anymore Time to calibrate Psychometer

Too Much 04:35
Take the oil from the earth Take a dime, change it's worth You push so hard to get what you've got coming You speak a tangled alphabet Grand illusions about life and death Broken bottles fill your empty pockets Too much, too much You cost me way too much You cost me way too much Every touch leaves a scar Conversation leads to war Nothing left to do but turn the music up Free passes and mistakes Use the world to fuel heartache Feel the beat of monkeys drumming in your head Too much, too much You cost me way too much You cost me way too much You'll pay, wake up one day To find I'm priced out of your range There's no more to get out of this Or to give Cause you cost me too much Of my life and my sanity Promises of changing ways Falling off like rusted chains Got the message left, It's unbelievable You're too much You take from me Too much You cost me Too much You cost me way too much

Dig Me Out 03:01
Dig me out, I fell in Buried deep, I don't know when You always be there, that's what you said I fell in Open wide that big black sky I thought the lightning would start a fire Twist my ankle on a snake Didn't think I'd get through the day All my friends in hibernation I miss our reckless conversation Don't leave me hanging in the wind Don't leave me hanging Dig me out I fell in Buried deep I don't know when I lost my step I lost my way The water's deep I hold my breath The bridge is broke I'm on the edge You always be there, that's what you said I fell in This umbrella's inside out Wind is shoving me around And all the people on the street They got their destinies All I get's mixed up directions God's hotel filled with complications Hear me ringing every bell Hear me ringing Dig me out I fell in Buried deep I don't know when I lost my step I lost my way The water's deep I hold my breath The bridge is broke I'm on the edge You always be there, that's what you said I fell in

I Like Lies 03:04
I like lies, so keep on talking Those shifty eyes, that nonsense I like your petty ways Picking on people Those little power plays Greedy, grabby So back stabby Everything about you Makes me feel so happy Cool and wonderful Sunshine by the handful You become a shadow Standing next to me Sweet and grateful Sugar by the mouthful You become bitter Standing next to me I like fake, so keep on smiling I see the hate between your teeth I like you jealous Little school girl So cruel girl Needy, nasty Poison gassy Everything about you Makes me feel so classy Cool and wonderful Sunshine by the handful You become a shadow Standing next to me Sweet and grateful Sugar by the mouthful You become bitter Standing next to me

You say it's all ok, well now I'm cocked and loaded Come on and get it honey But don't get too close, My steel's corroded On a drive by taking aim I'm so mad I'm spittin' bullets You better run, son The truth is your weapon now You're using it to shoot me down Oh you're killing me But I'm not dying You're filling me with lead Oh life can be so mystifying All I'm living for I'm living for some more Keep killing me again I got a rocket launcher Maybe you shouldn't come around no more A target or a halo, I'm not wearing either one So get on, little doggie So I'm asking you point blank I want your arms of fire Wrapped around me Oh you're killing me But I'm not dying You're filling me with lead Oh life can be so mystifying All I'm living for I'm living for some more Keep killing me again

Got married in Vegas Divorced in Reno Should've caught the first plane out Lost my cash at the casino Drove across the USA In a beat up Chevrolet Tried to get my life on track Didn't know I had it made Hey hey, have a nice day That's what they say that's what you get Hey yeah, have a nice trip In the end, you do what you do You get what you get Had to live in New York City Got burned to a crisp Headed to the Caribbean Got stung by jellyfish Sailed across the Atlantic Really loved the London scene Til' my little heart got broken By a no good rocknroll queen Hey hey, have a nice day That's what they say that's what you get Hey yeah, have a nice trip In the end, you do what you do You get what you get Got another job, Lost my temper in Japan Ya know I don't remember Think I got to Amsterdam So the world keeps turning And the four winds blow It's a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat Every where I go Hey hey, have a nice day That's what they say that's what you get Hey yeah, have a nice trip In the end, you do what you do You get what you get

I can forget you Twenty times a day I do it Mind over matter Until the groove is worn right through Someone's jamming up my zone I got no flow I really wanna let go Like a boomerang A moth to the flame of the same old rerun Erased and deleted Pictures on my drive on my phone in my head Don't look but I see them Someone's jamming up my zone I got no flow I really wanna let go I gotta keep movin' I gotta keep shakin' Off the hook, off the line Leave what's gone behind Get unsynchronized All alone and lost Is still better off I can forget you I can forget you now I can forget you I can forget you now Gotta keep movin' I gotta keep shakin' I can forget you now

Jellyroll 03:41
I woke up thinking of you There's no morning sun My hunger's tangled up so wild The day is on the run The ceiling fan is turning The sheets are on the floor I dreamt we took a ride on the East side Looking for a jellyroll You leave me wanting nothing more Than what I'm holding here Don't get choose what we keep Or what we lose Look to the sky it's raining sugar Too bad it's so good I'd give it up if I could You're my sweet tooth tiger Stealing from the cookie jar If you don't own up I'm your buttercup I'll stick right to your heart Must be jelly 'cause jam don't shake Honey won't ya give me that coffee cake You leave me wanting nothing more Than what I'm holding here Don't get choose what we keep Or what we lose Look to the sky it's raining sugar Too bad it's so good I'd give it up if I could
