Tragic Vision
Song: Tragic Vision
Artist: Lagwagon
Album: Duh
By Joe Muggah


In this faltering nation
the future belongs
to the children in school.
There's something wrong.

Sixth grader on crack
handgun overflowing in his hands.
Now he is just further demands.

We search for the source
and still that child is watching
inhumanity, bloodshed
as the tele-violence feeds his head.

Only if he knew
the consequence of greed.
A concious state of mind.
TV is not reality.
State of reality...
State of mind.

Never a victim the role model said:
"Bang, bang the bad guy's dead".
Always a rockstar on empty TV
The lesson complete, now the child has needs.

Of competition they bleed,
oh beautiful for bills of green.
Nevermind spacious skies overhead,
bleed the earth and butter your bread.

Only if he knew
the consequence of greed.
A concious state of mind.
TV is not reality.
(State of mind). TV is not reality.
(State of mind). TV is not reality.

Child turns on TV. (What does he see?)
Nature of man. (Dishonesty)
That child grows old, story be told
as he sits behind bars and his soul grows cold.

Only if he knew
the consequence of greed.
A concious state of mind.
(State of mind). TV is not reality.
(State of mind). TV is not reality.
(State of mind). TV is not reality.
State of mind.back to top
Foiled Again
Realizing its too late
Destiny turns to fate
Realizing its too late now
(Repeat)
Now you say its over
And the monkeys off your back
All it took was valium
And a couple of six packs
So once again youve lied
And your story remains the same
Because misery loves company
And youre the one to blame
Its your life
And its always the same
Its your lie
And its always the same to meback to top
Bury the Hatchet
"Bury The Hatchet"
from:BEN WITMER

I can't recall the hurting words that I once said
So long ago, still indignation clouds your head
And it's enough to know the pain of losing friends
You perpetuate certain sensless hate
And I can picture you today as you say
"I used to know that guy" And as you speak they watch your face split in two
And when you see me
It's always, hey Joe,
How is it goin' bro?
Where have you been man?
We used to be such good friends
Two-faced, you don't care
You know what you can do with it
I can't pretend
And there you go again
You ought to bury the hatchet
And leave behind all of the lies
And your disguise
You know that I just want to
Bury the hatchet
How much more will you permit?
Think about it you'll admit
You and I have got to bury the hatchet
Am I really all that bad?
Sometimes I second guess
Often times I wonder why my head is such a mess
But put yourself in my shoes and picture if you can
All these insecuriries create that bitter sad man you see
Hurting
Not me
I forgive, I forget
I won't say the things I'll regret
Not this time
I will stop, but just between you and me
It's a loss
I can't recall the hurting words that I once said
So long ago, still indignation clouds your head
'Cause it's enough to know the pain of losing friends
Fingers point at you
Isn't that what a child would do?
And as you speak they'd watch your face split in two
And when you see me
It's always, hey Joe,
How is it goin' bro?
Where have you been man?
We used to be such good friends
Two faced, you don't care
You know what you can do with it
Hypocrite
Don't give me that shitback to top
Angry Days
Duh - 1992

Angry youth MR. Elite
Your older now
Inside your head lives an old scene MR. Punk Sad
And hating everyone
Your excuse is old
The way you felt has left you hating yourself
Cause everyone is so confused
You never worked for a cent
Self-destructive you pay your debt
Cause you miss another time when all your friends were divine
Now all of them have gone or changed
Do you still live in angry days?
Do you still live in angry days?
But if youve lost someone you loved
If your mask is taken off
Does life cut you down to size?
Does it open up your eyes?
Beacuse they all have found their way
As you struggle through your maze
You built those walls of hate
Dont tell me its too late
Cause everyone is so confused
You never worked for a cent
Self-destructive you pay your debt
Cause you miss another time when all your friends were divine
Now all of them have gone or changed
Do you still live in angry days?
Do you still live in angry days?
Do you still live in angry days?
Can you grow out of senseless hate?
Senseless hateback to top
Noble End
"Noble End"

He grew up with nothing
He lived and died poor
A father of four
He left his family temporarily
For a future based on words of chicanery
They said join the Army
Join the Navy
He joined the Marines
And his children were proud
But exhaltation was exhausted
And patronage died
When this expendable number
Left his family of five
Imposture
And all that man wanted was
To provide a better existence for
His kids and wife
An investment that cost him his life
A family of ethics has...
A fatality of war can't be noble enough
To justify the loss of life so young
Continental security
Atonement, there's no such thing
There was no hero in the end
Only letters of resent, remorse, regret
Bitter resent
Imposture
And all those boys wanted was
To be alive,
A return of existence yet
So many died
And those who returned were alone
With nothing awaiting at home
Again the headlines read
"A Noble Soldier Finds A Noble Ending"
They are the ones who can be done without
Expendable numbers forgotten
No doubt
A family of ethics has diedback to top
Child (Inside)
"Child Inside"

Too many hangars in the closet
A clutter of confusion
Too little rectitude to hold
A moral absolute
Too much distinction to relate to them
Irresolutions we contemplate with no end
In this world of give and take
And what we refer to as maturity
From emotional need to technology
Has you, a cultured seed of your society,
Lacking ability to feel clemency
I'm surprized we still
Bleed into the abyss of despair
That's hiding the child
Compassion you would not dare
Admit to have experienced
Do you regret looking back?
A penitent confessing his sins
The child inside of me recalls a time of purity,
An outlook of release
You remember
Confident that you were able
A future laid out on your table
Running through memories
A child is free
The world restored you see
I see
The child inside of meback to top
Bad Moon Rising
"Bad Moon Rising"

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightning.
I see bad times today.

[Chorus:]
Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

[Chorus]

All right!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

[Chorus]

Beer Goggles
Trashed 1994 Fat Wreck

The turn out tonight is weak
The crowd is looking meager
Only 40 to 50 in the flock but 3 more beers and I'm playin' Woodstock
And you can probably see that we're not all that tight
A couple more drinks will alter your sight
That does not mean fight
I'm not saying I have to be drunk but tequila shots make it more fun
I'm havin' fun

Oh, Beer Goggles
Oh, Beer Goggles
I love to put them on
Next to eachother at the bar
She's thinkin' he's the one
I'm thinkin' where's my car?
She thinks I look good
Obviously she didn't smell that fart
"Oh, what kind of cologne is that you're wearing?"
" Hey man, it's a start "
"Hi, my name's Barbie"
"My name's Ken"
The perfect couple 'cause we're drunk in the head
I'm drunk again

Oh, Beer Goggles
Oh, Beer Goggles
I love to put them on

And one size fits all!!!back to top
Parents Guide to Living
Song: Parents Guide to Living
Artist: Lagwagon
Album: Trashed
By Joe Muggah


Wasting his days and his nights.
Nothing's changed; nothing's right.
He has no sense of pride.
Sees no respect in his parents eyes.
And why should he care?
No one ever cared for him.

Wasting her nights and days.
Sixteen with a child, God wouldn't have it any other way.
And then they told her of shame
and that impurity made her bed.
No fucking choice; she took two lives instead.

All these worthless nights.
All these wasted days.
Down the path I follow you
because who am I?
Denial.

I still care, my lifes in the air. Laughing harder,
in self-concious I've played my last solitaire.

That shirt's too tight to wear.

Wasting my days and nights.
Nothings right; nothings changed.
I know I'm not exactly the parents guide to living,
but it's the road less traveled in this world so unforgiving,
and I've lost count of score.back to top
Mr. Coffee
Duh - 1992

Morning has broken
MR. Coffee has spoken
The familiar wake-up call sings to my ears
I wake up with a shrug
To the floor with a thud
Where in this hellhole is my coffee mug?
I can now face the day on legal speed
(The American way)
I'm sketching
I'm seizing
I'm spazing
I'm shaking
I can not stop spilling on my brand new shirt
I-I-I'm wired I'm so inspired
I drank the entire pot so off to work
Here I come to save the day on legal speed
(The American way)
Drinking coffee
I drink coffee
Drinking coffee everyday
Drinking coffee
I drink coffee
Drinking coffee everyday
Drinking coffee
I drink coffee
Drinking coffee everyday
Drinking coffee
I drink coffee
Drinking coffee everyday
Drinking coffee
I drink coffee
Drinking coffee everyday...back to top
Of Mind and Matter
"Of Mind And Matter"

They spoke bravely
It opened our eyes
We swallowed their pride
A new era
So whee is the new advise
It seems the older methods no longer suffice
The very oldeest if thoughts
Cast into the mold of these new times
Vindictive, he raises his fist
The animal is instinctive
Everyone desires peace
But indread of war,
Still arms increase
Perpetual with only one end
When that savage nature destroys them all
All is written
All is forgiven
All is lived again
After all, this worthless progress
Is progress made for change
After all these vain advances
Does that concerned animal value his life?
Cornered
Human nature aliveback to top
Stop Whining
Can't you see we the people can make the choices
You and I must raise our voices
To build a future where we belong
Revoke oppression and right and wrong
But do you vote or do you only complain
Do you just carry on in vain
As your economy crashes, your country goes to war
The deficit Their answer to tax the poor
But you may never know what you refuse to learn
Do you work the system or do you get burned?
Do you ignore your abilities or your intellect? Are you obselete?
An easy out, you forget it all but it's the hardest path and you chase to follow
You wouldn't speak for yourself and now you're spoken for
This is something you can not ignore
It's time for you to notice the things that die with no more lies
You can't deny You're always high
and you still bitch Makes me sick It makes me sick
the way you always fuckin' bitch
I remember a time when I thought it wasn't fair
The scales of justice did impair
but with no darkness theere would never be light
Without injustice we'd never have a rightback to top
Lagwagon
Unemployment is my scene
Brain dead - the fumes I breath
Blah Blah Blah BlaBlaBlaBlaBlaBla
Carp is a town, not a fish
Too dumb to care
The S.B.-Goleta connection
Feelin' like a champion
All aboard the lagwagon
It's fast enough for me
Slow
Me-and-my friends
On the couch
Give me a sofa and some snacks
The idiot box-that T.V. trash
The V.C.R.-some stupid films
The remote control
Fuck the bills
There's no point in a job
The pay just sucks if you're a slob
I'm not lying
I'm lazy
And all my friends are just like me
(Chorus)
Garga jibs and metal riffs
Beer bings and bing hits
I hate that scene
Santa Barbara boredom
Goleta-postmortem
Small town minds
Can you relate to me?
(Repeat Chorus)
All aboard the lag wagon!!!back to top
