Freak Magnet
Some magnets attract
some magnets repel
some magnets say
hey hey, what the hell
I'll take it both ways
first you come and
then you go
and then you turn around
and P. A. Y. S.
it stays yes it stays no
I don't know what
you're doing here
I don't even want you near
seem like a seem
like a uhhh ....
I'm a I'm a
I'm a freak magnet
I'm a freak magnet
I'm a freak magnet
I'm a freak magnet
and I'm calling all the
freaks from the
freak freak planet
I'm a freak magnet
well the birds of a feather
will fly and flock together
and the letter will
come whether
it's good or bad weather
there's a cut on my knees
cause I need to freeze
and there's a cord
on my coat
cause i need to
cut the rope
and you're talking
like sleaze
and you're looking
like disease
seem like a seem
like a uhh...
(Chorus)
I don't wanna
date you ooo
i don't want to rape you ooo
I don't want to kiss you ooo
i will never
miss you because
some magnets repel
and some magnets
attract and some
magnets retreat and
then attack attack
attack
i want it both ways
first i come and
then you go
and you're the one
of us who pays
who says yes? i say no!

Sleepwalkin'
Someone sucked me
late last evening
And it was time to make a change
And i Wonder
am i too late
am i too far a strange
For what i have been doin for all of these years
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'

I have so few good memories
somethings terably wrong
As a singer singing badly
As he tries to sing the wrong song
Look what i have been doing all of these years
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'
Something moving in the light
Something spoke to me and said "go, go, go, go"
Something's moving in the house show
Something to show
For what ive been doing for all of these years
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'

Someone sucked me
late last evening
And it was time to make a change
And i Wonder
am i too late
am i too far a strange
For what i have been doin for all of these years
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'
Sleepwalkin' Sleepwalkin' Slee-ee-eepwalkin'

All I Want
All I want is to talk to you
All I want is to talk to you
I'm achin' for your touch
I'm breakin' cause I miss you so much
Do you miss me, too?

All I want is to walk with you
All I want is to walk with you
I'm hopin' for your kiss
I'm dopin' cause I miss you so much
Do you miss me, too?

Little bit closer, little bit closer, someday
When I try to get closer, then you move away

And all I want to say is all I want is to be with you
All I want is to be with you
You're hurting deep inside
You're flirting cause you need to feel that you are still alive

Little bit closer, little bit closer, someway
When I try to get closer, then you move away

And all I want to say is all I want is to walk with you
All I want is to talk with you
I'm prayin' for one night
I'm layin' so low cause I love you so though I know it ain't rightback to top

Rejoice and Be Happy
Rejoice & be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice & be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

Blessed are you who are persecuted too, for righteousness & the good that you do, if in the bread you put a little leaven, the Kingdom is yours & it's the Kingdom of Heaven.

Rejoice & be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice & be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

Ye are the salt of the earth, if you're not salty, what are you worth?

Rejoice & be ye exceedingly glad for great is the reward in Heaven to be had for the prophets they did persecute too, unjust though it was, they came way before you.

Rejoice & be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice & be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

We are the salt of the earth, if we're not salty, what are we worth?

Rejoice & be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice & be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

Rejoice & be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.

Forbidden
come with us and play!
see, we have breasts as women!
from your tents by the sea
come play with us: it is forbidden

come with us and play!
lo, bare, straight legs in the water!
by our boats we stay
then swimming away
come to us: it is forbidden!

come with us and play!
see, we are as tall as women!
our eyes are keen:
our hair is bright:
our voices speak outright:
we revel in the sea's green!
come play: it is forbidden!back to top
When You Died
I quit thinking about killing myself
when you died
just for a day or two
i must have wanted to
just for a day or two
I must have wanted to live

I quit believing these lies I tell myself
when you died
just for a day or two
I must have wanted to
just for a day or two
I must have wanted the truth

I will always love you my friend
now that you died
but just for a day or two
I'd like to be with you
just for a day or two
I'd like to have you aliveback to top
At Your Feet
At your feet would fall many kings
At your feet will fall many things
At your hands I'd kiss every one of your rings
And this song in silence sings... my love

At your feet I'd kiss every one of your cool toes
My dumb heart is not as smart as what a fool knows
At your kiss I'd curse everyone
For my bad luck I wish but to whisper
"I love you" but I will not not fuck up your life

At your feet will fall many tears
And your hands will form many fears
Before your face will pace many a peer
I'm the one who comes but to disappear
And reappear oh my dear
I want you near... here

At your feet would fall many queens
At your feet the willow tree leans
And my love will follow you there
Lightning strikes but I don't know where

Is my love
I love you
All my lifeback to top
I Danced
I danced before I had two feet.
Sang before I had a tongue.
I laughed before I had two eyes.
Loved before my heart was young.
I swam before I had two hands
And held the distance in my toes.
Before I heard the stars I knew
The wild compulsion of the rose.
I bore the fruits of many lies.
Before I came into this day.
I knew before my grave was made,
The worms eat only death away
The worms eat only death away
I danced before I had two feet
I danced before I had two feet
I danced before I had two feet
I danced before I had two feet.

Gordon gano: vocals, guitar
Brian ritchie: acoustic bass guitar, vocals, guitar solo
Guy hoffman: drums, vocals

From the poem I danced before I had two feet written by max dunn

I'm Bad
bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad
I was bas born
I'd be badder when I die
I'm bad when I am sober
I'm badder when I'm high
I'm when I feel good
I'm bad when I'm blue
I'm bad to myself
So I'll be bad to you
So I'll be bad to you
I should've been good
Look at the trouble I've had
I would if I could
But I'm just bad
bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad
I'm, bad and I'm alive
I'll be badder when I'm dead
I'm bad in my body
man I'm badder in the head
I'm bad in the bed
Something wrong from the start
Guilt in my mind
Evil in my heart
Evil in my heart
I don't need to be happy
I don't care if I'm sad
I don't care about nothin'
Cause I'm bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad
Don't lend me a dollar
Don't lend me a dime
Don't lend me your wife
She'll have a good time
I'm bad in my car
I'm badder when I'm home
I'm bad when I'm with you
And I'm badder all alone
I'm a low down worm
I'm a conquering worm
I'm a blood-suckin' worm
I'm a slime baitin' worm
I'll put you on the hook
And I'll watch you squirm
I could never learn
Any young turks new tricks
I could never learn
Not to kick against the pricks
Things go from bad to worse
Sometimes it makes me glad
That I was born
Under the Curse of being bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad
Don't lend me a dollar
Don't lend me dime,
Don't lend me your wife
She'll have a good time
Don't lend me a twenty,
Don't lend me a ten,
If you lend me a hundread
You'll never see me again
What I would do
These are the very things I don't do
And what I would not do
Those are the things that i do
Who shall deliver from this body of death
It's not Muhammed
And it's not Seth
I tried to be happy
But it onyl made me sad
I wanted to be good
But I'm just bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad bad
bad bad bad bad bad

Happiness Is
I don't know what one means by happy
I'm happy spasmodically
If I eat a chocolet turtle I'm happy
When the box is empty I'm unhappy
When I get another box
I'm happy again
Happiness is a word for amaturesback to top
