Gentle hum of the old machines
Here we come, scrubbed and scoured
Patches on our jeans
When the drone sounds in the cool night wind
We pick up the call
Kick all the traces in

Hungry for love
Ready to drown
So tie down the sails
We're going downtown

Great big drain on the power grid
You may not like Tate's methods
But you've got to admit she's a real nice kid
We walk light
Down the wires
Higher than weather baloons
Empty hearts on fire

Hungry for love
Ready to drown
So tie down the sails tonight
We're going downtown

Just take off all your clothes
And throw them into the fire
This city is burning down tonight
Come tonight

We'll live just like animals
As naked as we were born
This fire is setting us to sea
Come to me

Everything is happening
Everyone is clapping
(For no one reason)
Nothing ever ending
Everything is ending
(And it seems to be the perfect thing)
Everything is ending
Nothing ever ending
Everybody sing, ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
(Take a good look around, ba ba ba)

There's nothing that we could do
To keep it from going down
This boat may not make it back alive
But we'll survive

We'll swim to a desert aisle
And live off what we can find
The earth and the sun just might collide
But we'll be fine

Everything is happening
Everyone is clapping
(For no one reason)
Nothing ever ending
Everything is ending
(And it seems to be the perfect thing)
Everything is ending
Nothing ever ending
Everybody sing, ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
(Take a good look around, ba ba ba)

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumor from ground control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love
Sordid details following"

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in Heaven, his high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wings are following me
Oh no, not again

I'm stuck with a valuable friend
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too"
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I've never done good things
I've never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in Heaven, his high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said, "To get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom"
My mother said, "To get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom"

When they tightly strap me in, give me lethal injection,
Just a few moments to live, no remorse for what I did,
It was for the betterment of man, I gave the utmost sacrifice,
Before more damage could be done I took his life.

There was a split second of silence when the dart punctured the skin,
Beady eyes rolled back in head, body dropped from the poison,
They could incapacitate me, but could not erase my sneer,
I heard a thousand people screaming, while three billion others cheered,
He was gone, and I would soon be...

Executed by the state, all appeals would be in vain,
I was not criminally insane, in fact, I was found to be,
An otherwise caring and respectable member of society,
A minor threat, except for that one man I killed.

As the sedatives take effect, I just smile and close my eyes,
There's a priest kneeling next to me, he asks me if I realize,
I was going straight to hell, and he thought that I should know,
That the man I killed's replacement planned this whole scenario,
And what I did had no significance at all.

The sun above me and the concrete floor below
Scratch at the chain links, maybe bare my teeth for show
Fed twice a day, I don't go hungry anymore
Feel in my bones just what the future has in store

I pace in circles so the camera will see
Look hard at my stripes, there'll be no more after me

Laze by the shoreline while the sailors disembark
Scratch out a place to sit and rest down in the dark
Smell something burning downwind just a little ways
They set up camp and sing and sweat and work for days

I have no fear of anyone, I'm dumb and wild and free
I am a flightless bird and there'll be no more after me

In Costa Rica in a burrow underground
Climb to the surface, blink my eyes and look around
I'm all alone here as I try my tiny song
Claim my place beneath the sky but i won't be here for long

I sang all night, the moon shone on me through the trees
No brothers left and there'll be no more after me

Default I never really noticed the lyrics to this song as a kid

Say, do you remember that guy Larry next door?
Well, he always was the neighborhood clown
Like the time he pulled my pants off and took those color pictures
And posted copies all over town

Or the time that he dumped toxic waste on my lawn
Or those wacky prank phone calls from midnight 'til dawn
What a crazy kid Larry was, always fooling around

Boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try

Say, do you remember when I lost all my hair
'Cuz Lar gave me that Nair shampoo?
And hey, how 'bout the day he put Bengay inside my jockstrap
And filled my toothpaste tube up with glue?

All those wedgies he gave, all those shoe strings he tied
All those brownies he made with the Ex Lax inside
Oh Lar, I swear, it was a laugh a minute with you

Boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try

You know, I couldn't help but laugh
Even though he treated me like slime
Remember when he cut my car in half?
Well, he really got me good that time!

Say, do you remember when I broke in Larry's house late at night
And tied his mouth with a rag?
Then I dragged him by his ankles to the middle of the forest
And stuffed him in a big plastic bag?

If the cops ever find him, who knows what they'd say?
But I'm sure if old Lar were still with us today
He would have to agree with me, it was a pretty good gag!

Boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try

Oh, boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guuuuuuy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try
No matter how I try

Electric guitar gets run over by a car on the highway
This is a crime against the state
This is the meaning of life

To tune this electric guitar
Tune this electric guitar
Tune this electric guitar
Tune this electric guitar

Electric guitar is brought in to a court of law
The judge and the jury
Twelve members of the jury
All listening to records
Is this is a crime against the state?
This is the verdict they reach

Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar

Electric guitar is copied
The copy sounds better
Call this the law of justice
Call this freedom and liberty

I thought I perjure myself right in front of the jury
Is this a crime against the state?
No, this is the verdict they reach

Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar

Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing

We bought a lot of things
to keep you warm and dry
And a funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow
And a book of rules
On what to say to people
when they pick on you
'Cause if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty Kookie too

Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing


And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up
this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies
or the cads
'Cause I'm not much cop at punching other people's Dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing

No star is o'er the lake,
Its pale watch keeping,
The moon is half awake,
Through gray mist creeping,
The last red leaves fall round
The porch of roses,
The clock hath ceased to sound,
The long day closes.

Sit by the silent hearth
In calm endeavour,
To count the sounds of mirth,
Now dumb for ever.
Heed not how hope believes
And fate disposes:
Shadow is round the eaves,
The long day closes.

The lighted windows dim
Are fading slowly.
The fire that was so trim
Now quivers lowly.
Go to the dreamless bed
Where grief reposes;
Thy book of toil is read,
The long day closes.

what's going on?
could this be my understanding?
it's not your fault
i was being too demanding
i must admit it's my pride that made me distant
all because i hoped that you'd be someone different

It's okay when it's in a three-way
It's not gay when it's in a three-way
With a honey in the middle there's some leeway
The area's gray in a one-two-three-way

Normally, I don't get down with dudes
But tonight is a special exception (Great!)
See, you're my best friend through thick and thin
Now it's time to make a triple connection (Lights off!)

Here in the dark (Here in the dark)
It's hard to tell (So hard to tell)
Where her body ends (La-la)
And my homie's begins (Yeah, yeah)
This rule dates back (The Golden Rule)
To Ancient Greece (Talkin' about Ceaser!)
With two Jack triples and a Chrissy
It's the new Three's Company


It's okay when it's in a three-way
It's not gay when it's in a three-way
With a honey in the middle there's some leeway
The area's gray in a one-two-three-way

I've got the brains
You've got the looks
Let's make lots of money

You've got the brawn
I've got the brains
Let's make lots of

I've had enough of scheming
And messing around with jerks
My car is parked outside
I'm afraid it doesn't work

I'm looking for a partner
Someone who gets things fixed
Ask yourself this question:
Do you want to get rich?

I've got the brains
You've got the looks
Let's make lots of money

You've got the brawn
I've got the brains
Let's make lots of money

You can tell I'm educated
I've studied up so long
Doctored in mathematics
I could've been a don

I can program a computer
Choose the perfect time
If you've got the inclination
I have got the crime

Oh, there's lots of opportunities
If you know where to take them
You know, there's lots of opportunities
If there aren't you can make them

Make or break them


I've got the brains
You've got the looks
Let's make lots of money
Let's make lots of

Money

You can say I'm single-minded
I know what I could be
How'd you feel about it
Come and take a walk with me

I'm looking for a partner
Regardless of expense
Think about it seriously
You know it makes sense

Let's (Got the brains)
Make (Got the brawn)
Let's make lots of money

(Let's) You've got the brawn
(Make) I've got the brains
Let's make lots of money

I've got the brains (Got the brains)
You've got the looks (Got the looks)
Let's make lots of money

Money

Throw away the thing that tells you not to throw the thing away
You'll forget to rue the day you went ahead and threw the thing away
Nine secret steps to the
Key to the door that you'll
Throw in the well
And let go of all your thwarted dreams and visions of success

Amputate the thought that says you shouldn't ever amputate a thought
You'll be overwrought until you go ahead and amputate the thought
Nine secret steps to un-
Lock the potential to
Forgo the knowledge
Of what can be attained as long as nothing's ever gained

I can't tell you what's in secret step five
You will know when you're no longer alive

Inhume your gloom within a tomb
Confine your mind behind a line
There's only doom outside your room
Confine your mind behind a line
Nine secret steps to the
Key to the door that you'll
Throw in the well
And let go of all your thwarted dreams
Let go of all your thwarted dreams
Let go of all your thwarted dreams
Of all your thwarted dreams

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
And things seem hard or tough
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
And you feel that you've had quite enough

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
Revolving at 900 miles an hour
That's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power
The sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm at 40 000 miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way

The galaxy itself contains 100 billion stars
It's 100 000 light-years side to side
It bulges in the middle, 16 000 light-years thick
But out by us it's just 3000 light-years wide
We're 30 000 light-years from galactic central point
We go round every 200 million years
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions in this amazing and expanding universe

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whiz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light you know
12 million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is
So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth

As I desaturate the fertile greens, I wanna tell you I
Donít perpetuate these western schemes but I canít stop laughing at
The shortsightedness of childhood dreams where weíre all young astronauts.
The truth is it sucks being young and in love.
When youíre old youíre just bummed that youíll never be happy enough.

Swim in waterfalls while parents sleep; emerge with spider bites.
Fearlessly exploring new countries, I crashed my motorbike.
I wanted to outline the scar in tattoo ink.
It looked like a polar bear or Africa.
But the scar went away and my memories changed.
No, it wouldnít be great to be back in 1998.

Iíve been treating my body.
Like I never worry that Iím gonna die
Because you would forgive me.
Iíve been treating my body.
Like I, Like Iím worried
That Iím gonna die and youíre gonna forget my name.

So what do we get for the friends weíve met and the ones we love at home?
Yeah, what do we get for the friends weíve met and the one weíve left alone?

Weíre gonna give Ďem a trip to the hospital.
Weíre gonna give Ďem the bill for the funeral.
Weíre gonna give Ďem the debt from our student loans.
Weíre gonna give Ďem whatís left of the shit we owned.

Iíve been treating my body.
Like I never worry that Iím gonna die
Because you would forgive me.
Iíve been treating my body.
Like I, Like Iím worried
That Iím gonna die and youíre gonna forget my name.
Iím gonna die and youíre gonna forget my name.
Iím gonna die and youíre gonna forget my name.

So what do we get for the friends weíve met and the ones we love at home?
Yeah, what do we get for the friends weíve met and the one weíve left alone?

Drive a great big truck
When I'm old, when I'm old
Haul the wrecks down to the wreckyard
Help the boys unload

Keep my hair nice and long
Because I can, because I can
Any of my old friends who have no place to turn to
They know to call me anytime they come through

Never die, never die
Stand with a bullwhip in my hand
And rise, rise
In the desert sand

Work days, work nights
Finally get laid-up
By a piece of broken glass
On the floor of the shop

And the doctor recognizes me
As the operating theater grows dim
"Aren't you that old wrestler with the bullwhip?"
Yes sir, that's me, I'm him

Get around fine on one leg
Lose a kidney, then go blind
Sit on my porch in Houston
Let the good times dance across my mind

Never die, never die
Stand with a bullwhip in my hand
And rise, rise
Surrounded by friends

[Verse 1]
♪♪~ Joyous
Even before we hear the chorus
Church bells ringing we singing we so enormous
Streamers in the air who cares angels among us
We betting on the future ignoring the stars' warnings
So Beautiful amazing we following God's calling cause we seeing higher roads
And rose out of the garbage
For what it's worth
I see the Earth like a goddess
The sun is the father the moon is just a toddler
Spinning in the milky ways Iím gazing farther
Into the bluish hues of truth fading beyond us
Just taking off the harness and using the good knowledge Iím paying
Homage to scholars thatís showing the way for us
Further acknowledge
We carved from stone and polished
Brighter than Apollo and beautiful like Adonis
Behold a neo genesis Jesus hanging with honor
Siddhartha contemplating and Gandhiís Mahatma Chakra

[Hook x2]
Children of a lesser God
We rise regardless
Singing at the end of the world we live harder
Writing in the book of life with no author
Wishing the world for the better but still falter

[Verse 2]
Joyous
Even after we heard the chorus
Church bells ringing we singing we so enormous
We holding up our hands to the sky and cry honest
Amazed in the wonder we wonder whatís up above us
So even in destruction we finding something to love us
Cause life is a work of art titled beautiful struggle
Titanic in the forces an artist citing his sources
Of inspiration higher like Zionís measured proportions
Hewn from diamonds
But not the ones causing a riot
But inner gems of truth loosed we are Orion
Maybe Osiris
Rebirth without the science
Never a clone baby I renew spiraling higher
Until I reincarnate into a being of fire
Pure energy states of being I do aspire
Pure energy states of being I do aspire
Never retire until my spirit becomes wiser

[Hook x2]

[Verse 3]
Joyous
Still again after the chorus
Church bells ringing we singing we so enormous
We looking to the heavens with sevens up on our foreheads
Praying for world peace and hoping mission accomplished
Within the same breath but death always among us
But yet we never have to accept the war mongers
Ringing it in
I'm just a man chasing a seraphim
Trying to get my blessing of life, yes so letís begin

[Hook x2]

I waited here all by myself
The room was dark and it smelled like sulfur
I heard the screams from way down in the darkness
Felt pretty sure my life was over

I kept my hat on just for luck
Sang simple tunes the whole night through
I wondered if I'd wake to find myself in flames
As I waited here for you

Yeah, when you came in
I could breathe again

I saw some guys dressed up like sorcerers
Blue robes that float above the ground
They came and went and I was frightened for my life
I tried not to make a sound

Just when my solitude was closing in
I heard a howl like screeching tires
And I told you the one thing I know how to say
Through the bright ringing drone of 8-bit choirs

Yeah, when you came in
I could breathe again

On the morning when I woke up without you for the first time
I felt free and I felt lonely and I felt scared
And I began to talk to myself almost immediately
Not being used to being the only person there

The first time I made coffee for just myself, I made too much of it
But I drank it all just cause you hate it when I let things go to waste
And I wandered through the house like a little boy lost in the mall
And an astronaut could've seen the hunger in my eyes from space

And I sang oh, what do I do? What do I do? What do I do?
What do I do without you?

On the morning when I woke up without you for the first time
I was cold so I put on a sweater and I turned up the heat
And the walls began to close in and I felt so sad and frightened
I practically ran from the living room out into the street

And the wind began to blow and the trees began to pant
And the world in its cold way started coming alive
And I stood there like a businessman waiting for the train
And I got ready for the future to arrive

And I sang oh, what do I do? What do I do? What do I do?
What do I do without you?

Don't hate the villain, hate the villanelle
With these picky rules and odd jigsaw rhymes
Curses, these verses are my prison cell

At school I ran from the very first bell
The teacher's ruler, those maddening chimes
Don't hate the villain, hate the villanelle

Joking in class, oh the words I misspell
Mumbles and stammers, but are those real crimes
Curses, these verses are my prison cell

If someone could hear, for someone to tell
But friends have all fled to faraway climes
Don't hate the villain, hate the villanelle

I solve this puzzle but tumble through hell
These words are fractions when I needed primes
Curses, these verses are my prison cell

My hand disappears as I wave farewell
This gentle quicksand turns into hard times
Don't hate the villain, hate the villanelle

Curses, these verses are my prison cell

Mauler was the biggest, meanest, toughest, most evil dog on the whole block. He was 100 percent muscle and bad disposition and more than a match for 10 or 15 Nippers.

I dug a hole and filled it up with compost
Rested on the cool grass for a minute
I saw the future in a dream last night
Thereís nothing in it

I set the sapling in the hole
Started gently tamping down the dirt
I saw the future in a dream last night
Somebodyís gonna get hurt, somebodyís gonna get hurt
I hope itís not me
But I suspect itís going to have to be

I dug my heels in for the winter
And I waited for the snow
But something was stuck up in the clouds
Something was stuck up there
It couldnít let go

And when its time came I could see it happen
Blossoms black and sweet as Texas crude
I saw the future flowering like a ruptured vessel
Somebodyís gonna get screwed
It wonít be me
Someday I am going to walk out of here free

While the music played you worked by candlelight
Those San Francisco nights
You were the best in town
Just by chance you crossed the diamond with the pearl
You turned it on the world
That's when you turned the world around

Did you feel like Jesus
Did you realize you were a champion in their eyes?

On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen-clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home
Every A-frame had your number on the wall
You must've had it all
You'd go to LA on a dare and you'd go it alone

Could you live forever?
Could you see the day?
Could you feel your whole world fall apart and fade away?

Get along
Get along, Kid Charlemagne
Get along, Kid Charlemagne

Now your patrons have all left you in the red
Your low-rent friends are dead
Life can be very strange
All those day-glo freaks who used to paint the face
They've joined the human race
Some things will never change

Son, you were mistaken
You are obsolete
Look at all the white men on the street

Get along
Get along, Kid Charlemagne
Get along, Kid Charlemagne

Clean this mess up else we'll all end up in jail
The test tube and the scale
Just get it out of here
Is there gas in the car?
Yes, there's gas in the car
I think the people down the hall know who you are

Careful what you carry
'Cause the Man is wise
You are still an outlaw in their eyes

Get along
Get along, Kid Charlemagne
Get along, Kid Charlemagne

All clear wail the sirens
Sunshine on the waste land
Old man sitting in the white sand
Think we're in for a big surprise
Right between the eyes

Seemed a good idea
To drop a bomb on the waste land, yeah
Only one man could be seen
And he was old and so serene

Captain sat in his deck chair
And the red light flashed "Beware"
Pilot felt quite big time
As the bomb sailed through the air

Well, they danced and sang
When the bang went bang
When the lights popped out
And the smoke began to clear
It was positively queer

All clear wail the sirens
Sunshine on the waste land
Old man sitting in the white sand
Think we're in for a big surprise
Right between the eyes

"Die", said the general
"Cobblers", said the man
So the Pentagon sent a cable
And the Queen a telegram

A bombs, H bombs, even very small ones
Ripped apart that sand
'Til the stench was just revolting
And the sky a greenish tan

But the soldier said "Sir
There's a crack in the world"
And the figures went "Squash"
And the bits flew far and wide
How the universe sighed

All clear wail the sirens
Sunshine on the waste land
Old man sitting in the white sand
Think we're in for a big surprise
Right between the eyes

All clear wail the sirens
Sunshine on the waste land
Old man sitting in the white sand
Think we're in for a big surprise
Right between our eyes

When the smoke had blown away
There was nothing left in view
Except a man, dear Lord, who looks like You
Floating high, up in the sky
