Island Of Shame
Song: Island of Shame
Artist: Lagwagon
Album: Trashed
By Joe Muggah


And it's prejudice; as if he chose to be this way.
The wicked people that he would take...

One summer morn' he left us to shame
in some small town of small ways.
The one they feared they might turn to stone.
They feared to hold his hand and he died alone.
He died alone.

They might turn to stone, alone.
Don't leave them on an island of shame.

Your solution: you homophobic.
You coward, you send them away
to an island of misery.

You're not immune to any disease.
I cannot argue when the truth is plain to see.
In your beliefs, your fear of death,
I see reflections of society.

We'll take our last breath, alone.
Don't leave them on an island of shame.

Open your eyes, it's all in sight.
Adding insult to injury.
Cause deep inside the truth and lies,
it's not that blind.

He was alone.

And it's prejudice, as if he chose to be this way.
The wicked people that he would take.
It's pejudice.

Yes it's prejudice, as if he chose to be this way.
The wicked people that he would take,
that'd like to stab him in the back.back to top
Lazy
I just lost my job
I just lost my girl
Things are getting way out of con(trol)
But my living proff is writing me
Thrust me down
I'll never leave
Over head and guilt tv
I'm burn't out and lazy
Looking, dwealing
Fuck me
Look at my cat
Why can't I live like that
All of the animals except a few
Do nothing else but eat and shit
Yesterday was not the time
In my belt,In my mind,Im lazy.Fuck you.back to top
Know It All
"Know It All"
from BEN WITMER

Look at the world in disbelief
You used to follow - now you lead
College has enlightened you
And you are proud to be different
And like different bands - different types
You ain't nobody's fool
It's like certain bands remind you of someone you hated
'Cause they didn't wear the right clothing
And there's only one true fashion
Alot of the bands on the college charts are great bands
Until they get signed. Then you hate them
It's such bullshit - you used to love them you hypocrite
I remember you and I listening to bands that we liked
Only the songs mattered to you
But now you're a D.J. and preaching that hype
"Corporate Rock Sucks"
"You know, college radio enlightens you"
It's supposed to serve as a means to expose new bands
Without prejudice, but it makes no sense
Safe harbor for the underground
'Til the alternative becomes the popular sound
The bands are good 'til they make enough cash
To eat food and get a pad
Then they're sold out and their music is clichİ
Because talent's exclusive to bands without pay
Know it all - Did you really listen to that song?
Could you ever write what you call wrong?back to top
Stokin' The Neighbors
friday night's a perfect night to mow some neighbor's lawn
and i'm drunk and at the helm before too long
and chris will gladly ride shotgun
'cause navigating seems like fun
drunk and out of gas, we drive around and crash

drivin' through the yard
there's nothin' u can do
dave's behind the wheel and he's had more than just a few
suburban families slumber in civility
awakened to the sights and sounds of the yard they're blowin' down
in their death machine

drive, drive, drive, drive, drive, drive

dave's a midnight landscaper and he's workin over-time
and he is full throttle-- full throttle tonight
--ARIGHT!!--
he was almost home, just one more block
he had to hit that last mailbox
dumped it in a ditch-- ain't that a bitch?
STOKIN' THE NEIGHBORS!
dave had to run, dave had to bail
he was havin' too much fun to spend the night in jail
had no triple A for a tow truck
called 'em anyway only to hear them say
"hey pal, you're fucked"

"hey man, what're ya doin?"
"i'm goin for another drive, you wanna go chris?"
"ya bro, lemme grab a couple beers!"
"shouldn't be drivin like that, dave"

dave's a decent guy like most of us until he drinks
then his liquid mind takes over how he thinks
and then all that matters is havin' fun
pulling off the next beer run
on one too many nights, the party's over

drivin' through the yard
there's nothin' u can do
dave's behind the wheel and he's had more than just a few
suburban families slumber in civility
awakened to aftermath, the neighbors have been stoked

"the story you have just heard is true. the names have not been
changed to protect the guilty, however, lagwagon does not condone
drinking and driving, they just find this particularly humerous."back to top
Give It Back
Trying to ignore him
Trying to have self control
When that tounge slips just once
It's in his eyes

Thank you...

Silence by energy
Push me down
And the likes to come again
Here to make you listen to them
Treated to many times
The eye for eye has left us blind
This creature of demise
Repaid all the time

You hate them
You hate yourself
Take it out on someone else

I feel a change within myself
I used to be out of control
I always knew anger and pain
That inspiration was a game
But now it seems as I grow old
As I mature I'm lesser bold

I can't believe how cruel and cold some people act
I give it back

Cause I don't want it and I don't need it
So I give it back
Cause I don't want it and I don't need it

Don't wanna understand the child abuse, the past gone violence
Don't justify his violent nature

Soon or later I hope he meets his maker once again
And like his father before him he kills himself

Cause I don't want it and I don't need it
So I give it back
Cause I don't want it and I don't need it

You hate them
You hate yourself
Take it out on someone elseback to top
Rust
"Rust"

They make your bed, don't they
Long ago they fought and died for faith - what's changed ?
It's said that we've acquired tolerance to build more bridges
Cross those rivers, yet modern man enslaves his conscious
And the undertow of blame still flows between
Give it birth to the machine - hostilities of ancestry
Slow to understand the variance - quick to judge on one aspect - rust
We call them fools today - they will call us fools in days to come - always
In any age it's ignorance
He that he's not with me is against me
The river of pride swells to high, washing those bridges out to sea
Give it birth to the machine
Too proud to love - Too proud
Soaking in your fears - rusting away
Never comprehending - always condescending
Slow to understand the variance - quick to judge - quick to condem
Carried them for years - stones that they once cast
Place the blame on them as if it were their past
Yesterdays distrust
Resent, Regret, disgust
Still we pay for their living - pay for their mistakes
Who will cast the latest stones of hate
Pay for their misgivings - pay for their living - still we find that on the surface there

Goin' South
Trashed - 1994

(matey ave you ever been hit in the head by a bull?)
Gotta drive all night if not a go
Got to designate a driver before the show
It's your turn now at the wheel
There's nothing like a guard rail to wake you up in
The middle of the night
And we are drivin' north, goin' south
It looks like we'll sleep here, we're out of beer
We're headed south on the north bound
Our wheels might as well be square
Cause we're not really getting anywhere
Tire tracks throughout, felt the brakin'
I don't think we're gonna make it Drivin' around
Goin' down it looks like we'll sleep here
I need a beer
South, goin' south
Check us out we're goin' south South
Headed south, check it out, we're goin' down
South, goin' southback to top
Dis' Chords
Song: Dis'chords
Artist: Lagwagon
Album: Trashed
By Joe Muggah


Lies and words...

Silent again. When spoken their is friction and conflict.
Why do we rub each other wrong?

Maybe we've known each other too well for too long.
You and I have heard each other speech before.

Are these words that I said,
the same words that you heard?
We can only agree to disagree in disharmony.

Is it too much likeness or indifference?
Well the answers in the question isn't it?
The deepest cut of all comes from a trusted friend.
But I'm sick of it all I can't listen.
I wish that all of it would end...

You cut me off I cut you
down, down jerrated words.

Are these words that i said,
The same words that you heard?
We can only agree to disagree in disharmony.

Agree...agree...listen...
Let's stop repeating the lesson.

We've been through thick n' thin.
I consider you a friend.
Though it's hard for me show
Everytime you hear this song you'll know.

It's not just the business,
We know much more exist.
Let's end the bad notes and the dis'chords.
We'll tune our attitudes and realize a personal reward.back to top
Coffee And Cigarettes
Song: Coffee and Cigarettes
Artist: Lagwagon
Album: Trashed
By Joe Muggah


I'm getting used to getting old, but where's my ambition?
Days of omission...I feel
broken down inside because my words seem to be trite,
adding to the overwhelming...

Always a question of truth, your truth
that questions my efficeincy.
Impact: the words you can't hear.
Shocking: the words I can't write.

Recycled words don't justify.
None of these words suffice.
Searching for the sharp words to drive the message in.
I put the last word down then I begin.

To question the truth, your truth
that questions my efficiency.
Impact: The words you can't hear.
Shocking: the words I can't write.

I put the last words down then I begin.
To question the truth, your truth
that questions my efficiency.
Shocking: the words you can't hear.
Impact: the words I can't write.back to top
Brown Eyed Girl
"Brown Eyed Girl"

Hey where did we go, days when the rain came.
Down in the hollow, playin' a new game.
Laughin' and a runnin' , hey hey, skippin' and a jumpin'
In the misty mornin' fog with our hearts a thumpin' at you,
The Brown-Eyed Girl
You're my Brown-Eyed Girl
Now what ever happened, Tuesday is so slow,
Goin' down the old man river, with a transistor radio
Standin' in the sunlight laughin'
Hidin' behind a rainbow wall
Slippin' and a slidin', all along the waterfall with you,
The Brown-Eyed Girl
You're my Brown-Eyed Girl.

Do you remember when, ah we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
La dee dah

So hard to find my way, now that I'm all on my own
I saw you just the other day, my how you had grown,
Cast my memory back there, Lord,
Sometimes overcome thinkin' 'bout,
Makin love in the green grass, behind the stadium with you.
The Brown-Eyed Girl
You, my Brown-Eyed Girl.

Do you remember when, ah we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah
Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah

Whipping Boy
"Whipping Boy"

Now it's simple to me
Sometimes you have to let go when there's
Next to nothing
You say everytime she says no
There's more pain then love
It comes o shove almost
Everytime you speak
Somehow you fight
Something's just crazy
Somehow it's taking all the life left in you
You'er losing ground
Carrying that torch
Your not asking for much
As she has...
Had time to heal
And she doesn't need you any longer an you...
Had time to drink
And you call her to tell her you've gotten much stronger
At three in the morning she says stop calling cause...
Everyone's asleep
Some of us work
You're driving me crazy
When will you get on with my life
Now every nights friday night
Picking fights with your friends
Somehow trying to make amends
So you seach for comfort in a friend
It's not the same she won't understand
You both learned to think alike
So what was so wrong
Where's she tonight
Out there drinking while you're left in thinking
It's taken all the life left in...
You
You're losing ground
Carrying that torch
You're not asking for much
Still somehow
You'll wait for her
You say she'll return
But you still carry that torch
That girl

No One
Trashed - 1994

Labors of commitment
Blood of his arms
A growing sense of duty
But in his song he's screaming out
Insuficient - he just falls further behind
Principles, purpose, tradition, time
Weigh heavy on this guilty mind
Wits astray
Blind in rage, awar he'll wage on grieving
Another no one hanging from the ceiling
Because only the extreme makes an impression
When drowning in the mainstream
One at the mercy of another's faith
Finally answers to no one in his fall from grace
They say they love him but how could they ever
Miles above him they ask for repent
It doesn't matter what you want from me
Don't think there's worth in my apology
Because people never really change
You and I will always be the same
And it's a problem that we can't mend
Because it happened once it will happen again
Because they plant their seeds of condition
Until we have no choice, we lose conviction wits astray
Blind in rage a war he'll wage on grieving
Another no one blows his head off
Because only the extreme makes an impression
When drowning in the mainstream no oneback to top
Bye For Now
Trashed - 1994

Here comes the day I see my friends far away
When I grow up inside what will happen to me?
The city sights the business types
I can see but where are you?
Bye for now
Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to drive you away
Bye for now!
Now that your not around
So many things I'd like to say!
See here I think I've found the missing link
The piece that holds us together
If I had my way I'd here you say that it's OK
Friendship should last for ever
Bye for now
Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to drive you away
Bye for now!
Now that you're not around
So many things I'd like to say!
Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to let you down
Never meant to let you down
Didn't mean to let you down.back to top
