Up the Beach
here we go now
home...
home...
home…back to top
Ocean Size
wish I was ocean size
they cannot move you
no one tries no one pulls you
out from your hole
like a tooth aching a jawbone...

i was made with a heart of stone
to be broken
with one hard blow
i've seen the ocean
break on the shore
come together with no harm done...

it ain't easy living...

i want to be
as deep
as the ocean
mother ocean

some people tell me
home is in the sky
in the sky lives a spy
i want to be more like the ocean
no talking
all action...
no talking
all action…back to top
Had A Dad
Had a dad
Big and strong
Turned around found my daddy gone
He was the one
Made me what i am today
It's up to me now

My daddy has gone away...

Well i spoke to the mountain
I listened to the sea
Both told me that the fountain
Was the best that you could be
My daddy's hand it around
Show to the lickin
Sonny boy
Grow to whip him!

If you see my dad
Tell him my brothers
All gone mad
They're beating on each other
I walked around
Even tried to call
Got that funny feeling

He's not there at all…back to top
Ted, Just Admit It…
camera got them images
camera got them all
nothing's shocking...
showed me everybody
naked and disfigured
nothing's shocking...
and then he came
now sister's
not a virgin anymore
her sex is violent...

the t.v.'s got them images
t.v.'s got them all
it's not shocking!
every half an hour
someone's captured and
the cop moves them along...
it's just like the show before
the news is
just another show
with sex and violence...

sex is violent...
sex is violent...
sex is violent...
sex is violent...
sex is violent...
sex is violent...
sex is violent!

i am the killer of people
you look like a meatball
i'll throw away your toothpick
and ask for your giveness

because of this thing!
because of this thing!
because of this thing!

that's in me
is it not in you?
is it not your problem?

a baby to a mother..

you talk too much
to your scapegoat

that's what i say
he tells you everyone is stupid
that's what he thinks!

snapshots
make a girl look cheap
like a tongue extended
a baby's to a mother

sex is violent!
sex is violent!
sex is violent!
sex is violent!back to top
Standing in the Shower... Thinking
Standing in the shower thinking
about what makes a man
an outlaw or a leader
i'm thinking about power...
the ways a man could use it
or be destroyed by it
the water hits my neck
and i'm pissing on myself...

standing
in the shower
thinking...

standing in the shower thinking
about a man i know don't like me
he don't like the place i'm headed
same place he's headed
i know he'd beat me to it
if he could but he won't do it
but he would man
if he could...
and the water is piping hot..
the water is piping hot
it beats upon my neck
and i'm pissing on myself...

standing
in the shower
thinking...

standing in the shower thinking
is my woman afraid of me?
she's seen how far i've twisted
it's just cause i can trust her
and ever since we met
she understood so she let
me twist her good...
i twist her good...
and the water is piping hot
the water is piping hot
it beats upon my neck
and i'm pissing on myself...

standing
in the shower
thinking…back to top
Summertime Rolls
fell into
a sea of grass
and disappeared among
the shady blades...
children all
ran over me
screaming tag!
you are the one!

he trips her as
her sandals fail
she says stop!
i'm a girl...
whose fingernails are made
of mother's pearl...
yellow buttercup
helicopters
orange buttercat
chasing after
the crazy bee
mad about somebody...

me and my girlfriend
don't wear no shoes
her nose is painted pepper
sunlight...
she loves me
i mean it's serious
as serious can be...

she sings a song and
i listen to what it says:
if you want a friend
feed any animal...
there was so much space
i cut me a piece
with some fine wine
it brought peace to my mind
in the summertime...
and it rolled
summer.... oh...
oh.... the summertime rollsback to top
Mountain Song
comin' down the mountain
one of many children
everybody has
their own opinion
everybody has
their own opinion
holding it back
hurts so bad
jumping out of my flesh
and i said -
cash in!
cash in now honey
cash in now
cash in now
cash in now honey
cash in miss smith
cash in now!

i was comin down the mountain
met a child she had pin eyes
we had the same opinion
had the same opinion
she was holding it back
it hurts do bad
jumping out of her flesh
and i said -
cash in!
cash in now honey
cash in now
cash in now
cash in now honey
cash in miss smith
cash in now!back to top
Idiots Rule
i got a lie
a fat fuckin' lie
about a law
idiots obey
they made it easy
now cheaters have their way
you hi-di-ho's
you're living on your knees
forget the rule!
oh - idiots rule!
forget the rule!
oh - idiots rule!

now there's a time...
but i say non like now
there's a time
where idiots are bound
if there's a pole
planted in your back
then you're a fixture
not a man
forget the rule!
oh - idiots rule!
forget the rule!
oh - idiots rule!

idiots!
idiots rule!
idiots!
idiots rule!
idiots!
idiots rule!

you know that man
you hate?
you look more like him
every day everyday
hi-di-hos!
2 good shoes
won't save your soul
idiots rule!
idiots rule!back to top
Jane Says
Jane says
I'm done with sergio
He treats me like a ragdoll
She hides
The television
Says "i don't owe him nothing,
But if he comes back again
Tell him to wait right here for me or,
Try again tomorrow"

"I'm gonna kick tomorrow..."
"I'm gonna kick tomorrow..."

Jane says
"Have you seen my wig around?
I feel naked without it"
She knows
They all want her to go
But that's ok man
She don't like them anyway
Jane says
"I'm going away to spain when i get my money saved
I'm gonna start tomorrow"

"I'm gonna kick tomorrow..."
"I'm gonna kick tomorrow..."

She gets mad
And she starts to cry
Takes a swing but she can't hit!
She don't mean no harm
She just don't know...
What else to do about it

Jane goes
To the store at eight
She walks up on st. andrews
She waits
And gets her dinner there
She pulls her dinner
From her pocket

Jane says
"I've never been in love - no"
She don't know what it is
She only knows if someone wants her

"I only want 'em if they want me,..."
"I only know they want me..."

Jane says...
Jane says…back to top
Pig's in Zen
pig's in the mud
when he tires
pig's in zen
pig's in zen
pig is nude
unashamed
pig's in zen
pig's in zen

talkin' bout the pig
the pig
the pig - uh
pa-pa-pa-pa-pig
goddamn pig!

pig mounts sow
when he's wound

pig's in zen
pig's in zen
pig eats shit
but only when he hungers
pig's in zen
pig's in zen

talkin' bout the pig
the pig
the pig - uh
pa-pa-pa-pa-pig
goddamn pigback to top
