Mask
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
You look better that way
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
You look better that way
Are you my friend ?
Are you my plumber ?
Are you my God ?
What do you do ?
Wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
Which mask are you ?
Which mask are you ?
Complicated crushed up disappointed squirming angry thrusting stabbing regretting starving greedy human alien being, struggling down the street, up the alley, in the elevator, through the party, to the office, in the bedroom, on your way to the morgue. Bullshitting, lying, doing a good deed or feeling loved barely possible. Aware of insatiable demands of not a society all around you. Chunky frat boys in their shorts, pimps with old semite eyes, sex hoochies of the jungle, sensitive smart alec college graduates, critics fronting franticly in New York city, every body in L.A just plain licking ass or having it licked, irony in place of balls, balls in place of brains, brains in place of soul, where is the soul?, where is the love?, where am i?
Which mask are you ?
Which mask are you ?
Which mask are you ?
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
You're wearing a mask
which mask are you ?back to top
L.O.S.T.
I got my work
I got my work
The profit of doom is walking the beach
With a psychotic breakdown cardboard sign
Everything's faked and there's nothing to teach,
And there's no point in running crying

And i'm l.o.s.t. lost
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
In a garden of evil
In a garden of evil
In a garden of evil
In a garden of evil
Evil

I walk through the filthy sterile wasteland
When i'm no good they'll dump me on a scrap heap to die
Giant american tyrannosaur,
Even the animals are running away.
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
I'm l.o.s.t. lost
l.o.s.t. lost
In a garden of evil
In a garden of evil
In a garden of evil
In a garden of evil
Evil
Evil baby
I got my work
Yeah

I walk through the filthy sterile wasteland
when i'm no good they'll dump me on a scrap heap to die
Giant american tyrannosaur,
Even the animals are running away

I'm l.o.s.t. lost

Howl
Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowl
Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowl

Fuck it
I feel like howling
Got nowhere to turn
They'll kill you
For your spirit
This is what you learn
The music of tomorrow is
What you feel today
The owners of the future
Is not the one they say
A mountain of faces
Is rapin' my ear
I'm glad that my pride is
Stronger than my fear
I'm howling, baby
I'm howling, baby
Howling, baby
I knew the producer
He's got lots of tricks
He is the starmaker
The bands are little pricks

The music of tomorrow is
What you feel today
The owners of the future
Is not the one they say
A mountain of faces
Is rapin' my ear
I'm glad that my pride is
Stronger than my fear
I'm howling, baby
I'm howling, baby
I'm howling, baby

Foot Ball
I'm a football baby,
Rollin' round the field.
I've been passed and fumbled,
Till I don't know what I feel.
Everybody's the same,
They're all footballs too.
Setting up the big play
And trying to score.

I'm a football baby
In a football game
I'm a football baby
Run--kick

Life's a football game,
As every chump and champ knows.
We don't touch, we collide,
Till we're worn out inside.
We're kicking each other,
Right where it hurts,
Setting up the big play,
And trying to score.

I'm a football baby,
In a football game
I'm a football baby,
I'm a football baby,
In a football game
I'm a football baby,
Block--pass
I'm a football baby,
In a football game
I'm a football baby,
Run---kick---hit---goal .back to top

Talking Snake
Look what you have done,
Ruined every single one.
See what fools they are,
Jealous of a simple star.
Feel the 4 winds blow,
Let the sword hang low (baby)

Life's to take,
Says the talking snake,
Everybody should be happy
Life's to take,
Says the talking snake,
Everybody should be happy

To tell the sucking truth,
Everybody's dreams get used.
Twist me till i drip,
Liquid of emotions ripped.
Every hungry soul,
Hides a hungry fool (baby)

Life's to take,
Says the talking snake,
Everybody should be happy
Life's to take,
Says the talking snake,
Everybody should be happy

Feel the 4 winds blow,
Let the sword hang low (baby)

The Jerk
Look, here comes the jerk !

See the guy with the fakey smile,
Talkin' to my girl in a friendly style.
He thinks he's quite the flirt,
She'd suck a rats' dick before she'd fuck
Him his brain is full of dirt,
That's why the guy's a jerk,
His balls are gonna burst,
Thats why the guy's a jerk

Oh man you're killin' me !
Hey man your killin me !

He hangs out by the ladies room,
His pick up line is like the voice of doom.
"Hey baby do ya wanna go out with me,
and by the way I make a lotta money."
His method just don't work,
That's why the guy's a jerk.
By the office Johnny lurks,
That's why the guy's a jerk

Death Is Certain
Death is the best
Better than all the rest
On the dutiful lies in the rock paradise
Losses and wear and the texture of age
Adds a truth to the heart
And a light to the face
It's good when you don't give as
Much of a fuck
As you did when the threats mount
To make you suck
A burst of rage
A lively cry
Emotions wide
Your death is certain for sure
My death is certain alright
But death is certain no cure
‘Cause death is certain
‘Cause death is certain so why ?
Gotta diiiiiiiiie
A bone and a skull
In a conjugal hell
A mall full of gall
And the music jerks off
Pale and fate
At the table they sat
With their necks choking tight
In their collars dead white
Liquor and food ‘till
They spin and explode
In a shower of crap
In America's lap
A pliceman's numb
A lazy bum
Emotions come
‘Cause death is certain it's sure
‘Cause death is certain it's pure
‘Cause death is certain no cure
‘Cause death is certain
‘Cause death is certain that's why
Gotta die
Alright
Alright
Well, alright
Alright
Alright
Alright
Alright
Alright
Alright

A beast with legs
A kid who's numb
A lazy bum
Your death is certain it's sure
‘Cause death is certain it's pure
‘Cause death is certain no cure

Go for the Throat
I was lying in a coma
By the side of some damn road
My fucking heart was pounding
Like I thought it would explode
I had no protection
No family
No friends
I had nothing really
But a will to make this end
Go for the throat
Go for the throat
Go for the throat
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
I'm so fucked'up

It isn't very nice
What I do to make end's meet
It isn't very pretty when you hate
The folks you meet
It's a shame to feel hurt and angry everyday
It's a shame to take it out
On whoever's in the way
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Man I'm so fucked'up
I'm fucked'up
I'm fucked'up
I'm fucked'up
I'm fucked'up
Man I'm so fucked'up

Poor little girl
I hurt her really bad
I haven't been the same since I lost my mom and dad
Where is the justice ?
Well I really don't know
When everybody is singing
Like a fucking so and so
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up
Yeah I'm so fucked'up
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

They took away my freedom
They took away my games
They took away my innocence
And gave me shitty fame
There's nothing left to stop me
There's nothing left to feel
There's nothing left inside me
But a low down dirty deal
Go for the throat
Go for the throat
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up baby
Go for the throat
I'm fucked'up baby
I'm so fucked'up baby
I'm so fucked'up
Oh I'm fucked'up
I'm so fucked'up
Oh I'm fucked'up

Weasels
Weasels are runnin me to death,
I checked my gas there ain't much left.
Still i will take a parting shot,
Before I leave myself to rot.

Barbaric motherfucking weasels

Weasels
Weasels

Weasels have always been my friends,
I've turned them loose now there's no end.
Giants of rock tell giant lies,
Weasels control the evil skies.
Barbaric motherfucking weasels,
Bad breath bad taste cause of diseases.

I feel disgrace and I feel shame,
I feel anger and I feel blame,
I feel suspicion and I feel pride,
I feel weasels on all sides.

Weasels

Weasels

With guitars on t.v,
Weasels
Rewriting rock history,
Weasels
With an office and a chair,
Weasels
With nice butts and long silky hair.

Weasels suck and weasels blow,
Weasels control rock and roll
Weasels control rock and roll
Weasels control rock and roll
Weasels control rock and roll

Ahhhhhhhooooooooooooo
Uglyyyy !
C'mon ! Yeah ! hey ! all right
You got an ugly ass guy,
He got a problem with his dick.
You got a song with no soul,
Fucking don't mean a thing.
He got an ugly bouzy house,
He got a girlfriend on T.V,
That girl's something,
He can't sing for shit.

And I'm trying to be a person,
But they all say I'm worthless.
I'm trying to be a person,
But they all make me nervous.

You got a dog face chic,
With basketball tit's.
Porno sucks,
That's the truth of it.
You got a bunch of dumb fat guys,
In a wrestling uniform,
Trying to fake they're playing music,
They ought to be killed.

And I'm trying to be a person,
But they all say I'm worthless.
I'm trying to be a person,

They got the chics, The money cars and all, but they ain't got no motherfuckin' balls.

They got a fungus on their dick,
They got bald heads and tupees,
They're in total control,
Total fucking control,
They're even parked in my space.

You got a song with no soul,
No truth no love.
Because the music sucks,
That's why little kids blow up.
Everybody needs a gun,
To express feelings,
That should be expressed by a real musician

And I'm trying to be a person,
But they all say I'm worthless.
I'm trying to be a person,
But they all say I'm worthless.

V.I.P.
I'm a Very Important Person
I park in the V.I.P
And when I go to the bathroom,
i go in the V.I.P toilet
And when I wanna change a lightbulb,
I don't do it myself... Oooohhh no...
I have a technician
Cause I'm a V.I.P
I'm a V.I.P
I'm a V.I.P
I'm a V.I.P
Now, as I began to become a V.I.P,
i forgot what i've become a V.I.P for
I began to grow accustomed to people saying
"Right this way sir...drinks are on the house..."
Flight attendants on airplanes saying :

"Please...Really, I don't wanna bother you sir, but it's such a pleasure to have you on board.
May I have your autograph for my daughter ?"
"Yeah baby right after I go to the toilet
I i'll give you a couple of'em
Cause i'm a V.I.P!"

Now,one thing about V.I.P is,is they never seem to be alone
Ooohh no !
The "true" V.I.P must travel with an entourage !
People who say "Right on boss"
Cause it's a V.I.P!
Right on boss
I'm a V.I.P!
As i began to realise that i had gained V.I.P status,
worries began to creep in
What if one day,i woke up,and i was no longer a V.I.P ?
No more good tables at the restaurants...
No more strange women smiling and approaching me on the streets...
No more top notch booty
No more entourage to say "Right boss"
I began to have nightmares
And in my nightmares, I was just a fucking nobody.
Laying at the beach, imagining myself being a VIP !
Just like i was before...
Hearing the applause in my head
Beautiful warm embraces of superior members of the female gender...

V.I.P
V.I.P

Of course, when one becomes a V.I.P,
One meets other V.I.Ps
At social occasions...
And one inevitably thinks :
"thck ! How shallow and crass these people are !
They're not down to earth and real like me...
Oooohhh no ! I'm a very special V.I.P"

Another interesting phenomenon, associated with V.I.P celebrityhood, is the "V.I.P reflection effect", during which anyone associated with the V.I.P, becomes a sort of V.I.P in their own right ! Such as "son OF the V.I.P",
"guitar player FOR the V.I.P",
"girlfriend WITH the V.I.P",
"accountants of the V.I.P"
The maid, the dog, the music publisher ...huh !
All enjoy a sort of 'reflected glory', as in..

"Hi this is Nastea
I work for Iggy
And i'd like 6 tables tonight in the V.I.P section
And he needs passes for everyone
And free drinks of course
In the V.I.P area"
Right on boss
Cause i'm a V.I.P.
It's also true that when one is a V.I.P, everybody's happy to see you... All the time !
And there's an implicit rule that a V.I.P must never- never
Be on a barn.
Cause everybody expects YOU to make their day
And they're all be on to you if you're in a bad mood.
They will "thck!tchk!tchk ! mur mur mur mur mur!",
And you will find yourself with the wrong kind of attention:
A "difficult" V.I.P.
Psychologists tell us that a sense of self-esteem
Is so necessary in today's world.
As a V.I.P, I can guarantee you, you'll never be alone.
You'll never be alone.
Cause you're a V.I.P!back to top
