What is this I see before me, those who hate me now adore me, you who love to criticize Undress me with your eyes I was so small you couldn't see me, now every guy would love to be me, no one cares about my size, undress me with your eyes. Had no future, what a loser, no girl around would let me choose her, I bit down hard and started working, now everywhere cash is lurking. It's lonely at the top they say, much better than the other way, all you slaves in suits and ties undress me with your eyes. Undress me with your eyes, undress me with your eyes, undress me with your eyes The lawyers and financial planners work beneath my corporate banner setting up a perfect shrine, where everything I want is mine. I own a huge chunk of Nevada, biggest ranch in all Montana, Mr. Dow and Mrs. Jones have welcomed me into their homes. Sometimes I wonder to myself, why did I build up all this wealth, there's nothing left for me to buy and nothing left to do but die. So won't you bury me in splendor, in luxury return to sender, where all the angels in the skies undress me with their eyes.

So another year has come to kick you in the stomach, and the clock has spun around to slap you in the face. And still you think the day will come when you will hear a gunshot, get set, go start the race. You've been watching TV much too long, you've got a bulging belly, the phone call from your mother as she wishes you good luck, but no one's coming over to tell you to get going, because nobody gives a fuck Have a happy birthday, have a happy birthday, have a happy birthday, how old are you now Now you've got your thirty candles some potato chips and vodka, you swallow two more Tylenol and drag yourself to work And looking at that calendar you see that date approaching and you slowly go berserk. Cruising down that highway you can see a van approaching, you contemplate the notion but you haven't got the guts, so you just keep right on driving and your life just keeps on coasting, my best to you old buddy and good luck. Have a happy birthday, have a happy birthday, have a happy birthday, how old are you now

The Lemon 03:35
Once I was so puckered, sour as a lemon, my mouth grew dry with the taste of steel I was looking backwards, never looking upwards, my cup was half empty and filled with eels Never looked on my plate, always wanted other’s, an attitude explosion was nagging on me The good guys couldn't care less, the rest of you were happy I'd love to seek out scandals and sow their seeds Now I am so empty that I hide, I'm a young child running from a pedophile Now I am so empty that I hide, I'm a reptile, cold blooded crocodile Now I am so empty that I hide, and you couldn't care less, you couldn't care less Would you love me better; would you love me better if I chained you to the mattress and then I changed my address Would you love me better, would you love me better if I’d demonstrate some power, until the morning hours And would you love me better, do you love me better, now that I'm a lemon, now that I’m a lemon, now that I’m a lemon, now that I’m a lemon I had a friend named Mark he was a man without a spark, we always kept him in the dark, I had a friend named Mark I had a friend named Andy and the girls all found him handy, because he'd never take a stand, he was a man without a plan And as I ruffle through the pages of my life in all its stages I can still recall the faces of the ones I left behind And as I ruffle through the pages of my life in all its stages I can still recall the rage of everyone I left behind Now I am so empty that I cry, I'm a young child running from a pedophile Now I am so empty that I cry, tears of a crocodile, cold blooded reptile Now I am so empty that I cry, and you couldn't care less, you couldn't care less Would you love me better, would you love me better if I chained you to the mattress, and then I changed my address Would you love me better, would you love me better if I’d demonstrate some power, gave you a golden shower And would you love me better, do you love me better, now that I'm a lemon, now that I'm a lemon, now that I’m a lemon, now that I’m a lemon Once I was so puckered, sour as a lemon, your eyes grew wide with the sense of fear. I was staring at you, and I'm sure that you knew, there would be no happy ending I'm still standing here

Overseas 03:22
Somewhere someplace overseas, there's a black-haired princess, calling out to me, somewhere overseas Through the mist that is my dream, I can see her smiling and shining down on me, somewhere overseas As I turn to greet her she slowly moves away and I wake to focus on the harshness of a brand-new day But the daylight turns to night and she'll be back again, turning off my bedroom light, I know things will soon be right Somewhere someplace overseas there's a red eyed demon, howling at the trees, somewhere overseas Through the mist that is my dream, I can hear him screaming, he wants to sink his teeth in me, somewhere overseas As I try to run, I find my legs have turned to clay, and I wake to focus on the welcome of a brand-new day But the daylight turns to night and he'll be back again, and turning off my bedroom light, god help me through the night Anything can happen, in the world of dreams, we go to sleep with laughter but wake up in screams. Anything can happen, no barriers at all, last night when I woke up, I was in the middle of a fall Somewhere someplace overseas, the princess and the demon, are howling at the trees, somewhere overseas Through the mist that is my dream, I can hear them screaming, they want to sink their teeth in me, somewhere overseas As I try to run I find my legs have turned to clay and I wake to focus on the welcome of a brand-new day, but the daylight turns to night and they'll be back again, turning off my bedroom light, god help me through the night.

Diamonds 03:46
Carla never liked to wear shades, let the sunlight shine in her eyes, took the whole world by surprise The rays pierced deep into her soul, looking for the broken hearts, the ones that Carla stole But diamonds Carla said are the hardest rock, buy them and you'll stay, don't and you will walk And diamonds Carla said are every girl’s best friend, buy them and you'll stay, don't and it's the end Carla loves her diamonds, Carla loves her diamonds Carla, never liked to wear shades, let those diamonds sparkle in her eyes, took the whole world by surprise The years passed, Carla met another man, who bought her everything she wanted, gave her everything he can But diamonds Carla said are the hardest rock, buy them and you'll stay, don't and you will walk And diamonds Carla said are every girl’s best friend, buy them and you'll stay, don't and it's the end. Carla loves her diamonds; Carla loves her diamonds.

Shrinking world expanding sky, no time left for simple guys, so meaningless within your eyes Cosmic Karma Girl, Cosmic Karma Girl Golden trinkets get you high, visions racing through the sky, the crystal whispers gentle lies Cosmic Karma girl, Cosmic Karma Girl West of the milky way, interstellar voices say, the blessed never have to pay, Cosmic Karma girl You dance in reflected light, I see your face on satellite, still you sleep alone at night Cosmic Karma girl Shrinking world, expanding sky stick two needles in your eyes, you bite your lip and start to cry Cosmic Karma girl, Cosmic Karma girl Shrinking world expanding sky, no more trinkets left to buy, give a simple man a try Cosmic Karma Girl, Cosmic Karma girl One Bedroom Apartment Blues I'm sitting chewing on tin foil in my apartment, waiting for my blood to boil in this tenement, I wonder how she's getting along with my replacement, man you know the days are long in this apartment I'm thinking how she threw me out on the pavement, pondering events that lead to this predicament. I'm wondering how she's getting along with my replacement, man you know the days are long in this apartment I'm getting tired of staring at these four walls I'm getting tired of scratching at my balls I find myself totally possessed by you, I find myself totally obsessed with you I don't know where this is gonna lead me to, I've got the one bedroom apartment blues I've got the one bedroom apartment blues, I've got the one new pair of military shoes, I've got my internal engine adjusted to cruise, I've got the one bedroom apartment blues And I need someone to remind me that I'm still alive, you've all got husbands and boyfriends, girlfriends and wives, and I've got much more time than I’ll ever use, I've got the one bedroom apartment blues I'm sitting chewing on tin foil in my apartment, waiting for my blood to boil in this tenement, I wonder how she's getting along with my replacement, man you know the days are long in this apartment .

The Gotham City Council was naked to the bone, when the bat phone range there was nobody at home, said Batman to boy wonder lets run off alone you can take a big chomp of my bat bone Batman and Robin couldn't stop the throbbin Said Commissioner Gordon to the Chief Inspector I believe that my daughter is a communist defector, as policeman of this town it's your duty to protect her - push her on boy wonder if Batman should reject her Batman and Robin couldn't stop the throbbin It was four thirty in the morning when I woke up from the dream and it only took a moment to remember where I'd been Well I hadn't seen you for so long but you really hadn't changed, you were still so beautiful and you showed no sign of age Then you looked at me with your big eyes, the same ones that drove me wild, and you told me Said Joker to the Penguin when we get the chance we're going to take a dive into Batgirl's pants Said Batman to Boy Wonder we can break up this romance we can have a big orgy at the Bat ranch Batman and Robin couldn't stop the throbbin

I have a ballerina she lives in my dreams - dance ballerinas dance I keep her tied up to my record machine - dance ballerina dance ballerina And when she needs time to go out to play, I keep my eyes on my baby so she won’t go astray Dance ballerina dance My ballerina may stumble she may take a fall, that don't bother my baby cause she knows who to call She's got a master magician he knows just what to do he's got a bag full of tricks he'll make fool out of you Dance ballerina dance I love my ballerina since the day she could crawl but now she pirouettes like she's ten feet tall She shattered the spell discovered the tricks she leaves me cold and shaking, in need of a fix Sometimes I'm drawn to free my ballerina, if I loosen the chords would she rush back to me, or would she stand there in silence frozen in time

My name is Cain, I am the one, I have grown infamous for killing my own brother In my defense, I must maintain that I have done the world a service like no other He was so pure I hear you say, but if he were around today I think the story that I'd hear would be another I did him in for love and sin My name is Cain, one and the same; I cut the world population by a quarter I've done my best, tried to explain, how a world filled with Abel would be torture You see were Abel here today our lives would be in disarray and the world as we know it would be over I did him in, for love and sin Still.... every time I wander out of Eden you always bring him up Never giving up, never giving up, give him up, give him up, where is Abel He sits on my head like an invisible stain that all of you can see and hear; the mark of Cain The voices I keep hearing drive a man insane, though I love you all I take the fall, my name is Cain And while I am the father of all of you today you still need me to pay for killing Abel Sprawled across the ground in a web of pain, his blood soaking the earth and mixing with the rain And then from up above I hear you call my name, I turned away my face and said my name is Cain And even to this day you bring it to the table and serve it on my plate, where is Abel My name is Cain, I will not run, and though I face eternal hell for what I've done I've no regrets, not even one, and I am glad I laid to waste the gentle son You see were Abel here today our lives would be in disarray and the world as we know it would be over I did him in, for love and sin

The Kumari 04:06
Nepali legend through the years says Goddess Kumari will appear living in the body of a young Newari girl To every village teams are sent to find where the Kumari went, Sita's parents proud and sure their daughter would endure And now the local kids are calling, can Sita come to play, her parents shake their heads, Sita's gone away, Sita's gone away, the Kumari lives today And in the village square the people cheer and celebrate, welcome the living Goddess Kumari lives today Sita was a little girl when taken to a strange new world of marble floors and walls of stone, the family lives alone They dress her up in sacred clothes, paint her face like days of old, she leaves the temple once a year, the King and crowds appear And now the tourists watch as the villagers kneel and pray to a little girl - Sita's gone away, the Kumari lives today At the end of hear eleventh year, Goddess Kumari will disappear, Sita goes back to her home, to live her life alone And so it was, and so it is, so few have lived a life like this and once again new teams are sent, to find where the Kumari went.

I hear a cold wind calling, my name is rustling through the leaves and soon I will be traveling, leaving just a memory The seas, they are drawing me, I live to learn their mysteries, yet you refuse to follow me, this wasn't meant to be Bridge the distance in between us before love fades away, the trade wind's pull is powerful and I'm leaving you today, if we encounter turbulence I heard the pilot say, bridge the distance before love fades away Bridge the distance in between us before love fades away, the trade wind's pull is powerful and I'm leaving here today, I'm going to an ancient land where hidden treasures lay, bridge the distance before love fades away Come on bridge the distance I need you to say that you will drop your baggage and join me today Come on bridge the distance I want you to know that I love you very dearly but I’ve still got to go Come on bridge the distance I’m telling you how, darling won’t you join me now

Good Turnout 02:41
There is no place that you can run where you can hide from all the shit you've done The evil eye of a wicked son, a piece of glass and a loaded gun The show is now closed but everyone here knows, exactly who will glow at the end of the evening The brighter the star the quicker the burnout, but look at this crowd such a good turnout And if all the chords are wrong, you wanna kill yourself but you gotta be strong And I am not your dog, so why don't you crawl right back down under that log

Climb 04:10
Climb one step at a time until you get so high, that you can reach the top of the mountain and glide over the country side, the valley is so wide and you will drink right out of the fountain You are the one I like You are the one I like You are the one I like You are the one I like So when they flash the light in your eyes to check if you are still alive will you rise or will you climb So I drove all thorough the night and I kept my headlights bright but then I hit a patch of ice and I slammed right into the mountain and died, I crossed to the other side, the valley is so wide but then I drank right out of the fountain You are the one I like You are the one I like You are the one I like You are the one I like So when they flash the light in your eyes to check if you are still alive will you rise or will you climb One step one step one step at a time One step one step one step at a time One step one step one step at a time Will you rise and will you climb

Contact High 05:07
Fly under a mushroom sky, you with the cool grey eyes, you are my contact high Cocaine and red wine showed me a beautiful time, but I knew you weren't mine, you are my contact high MDMA - five capsules today helps me get out and play and takes my pain away You never said good-bye when you were going to die, under your frozen smile I saw trouble for miles Oh break away break away, just for a day for a day We've got great music to play, oh how I wish you could stay Take you away for a day, break you away from your pain, I didn't even try, your demons are bigger than mine Fly, under a mushroom sky, you with the cool grey eyes, you are my contact high
