Track Name: Song for a Rightwing, Christian, Homophobe
Jesus said... give me head... so I fell on to my knees and tried to please him

I was young... I was dumb... when he told me that he loved me I believed him

We were high.. crucified... he was strung up and so strung out how I wanted to be him

Now he's dead.. so they said... but they told me that he loved me so why did he leave me?

If you seen my man you better shake his hand/ holier than thou Im holier than thou

Repeat..
Track Name: Trippy Heart
Go on and tell the judge I don't need her anymore..said Im walking out the door I'll fake my fate

Theres too much thats left to lose when Yr. standing in my shoes and I don't care to see it through
Ive cut that weight

Go on relieve me now..just put on the breaks somehow...terrorize Yr. counterpart
And tattoo it on your trippy heart

Go and hold a grudge you cant touch me anymore even though I'm not that sure Ill take my aim

Exploring the great divide with no conscious by my side said I'm spitting up my pride I've got no shame

Go on relieve me now..just put on the breaks somehow...terrorize Yr. counterpart
And tattoo it on your trippy heart
Track Name: Medication Generation
The medication generation..We don't want to save the world..We just want to cop our self indulgent buzz..because...

The medication generation..we don't want to hear the words..we just want to hear the ohhhhs and ahhhhhs and laaassss (la la la)

If I could find a pill to kill my privlaged childhood..I would never hate myself again...

If I could find a way to make the darkness go away...I'd pay (and pay)
Track Name: We all Live On (and On)
Friends and associates were on the street today..with secret skinheads fighting for a place to stay

And Stoney Joney's go a lot of things to say about the gays..

I was obsessing on the universe in church..until they told me theres no life beyond the earth..

I then requested that the telescope be fixed upon the birth..for what its worth..

And we all live on and on..yes we all live on and on..yeah we all live on and on..until were gone...

Pill Popping Jesus Freaks are dancing 'round my head..I remember every sound and everything they said..

As fate would have it.. they were singing about the end but that depends..we'll make amends..

And we all live on and on..yes we all live on and on..yeah we all live on and on..until were gone...

Ive been evolving at the breaking speed of light..Im hoping for a charge with nothing in my sight..

My heads revolving and Im happy that your gunna spend the night...we'll get it right..

And we all live on and on..yes we all live on and on..yeah we all live on and on..until were gone...

I turned you down..re-invent your crown..

Were going downtown..don't turn around...don't make a sound..

Friends and associates were on the street today..with secret skinheads fighting for a place to stay

And Stoney Joney's go a lot of things to say about the gays..

And we all live on and on..yes we all live on and on..yeah we all live on and on..until were gone...
Track Name: Reeling Out
You can resolve or run away..the silence to you..wont wait until your through..
Locking the door but you won't stay..Yr. hearts still true blue..and theres nothing we can do..
Head in Yr. hands you hold the phone..yr. desperate to call home...
Lie on yr. bed and rest yr. bones.. Yr. still on Yr. own..Yr. still on Yr. own

And the same three chords keep ringing out..and you don't know what Yr. about..
Theres nothing left beyond yr. ceiling..yeah Yr. ceiling and Yr. reeling...oh, Yr. reeling out..

Confused and afraid you pull away..Yr. teenage fire burns..and you don't want to learn..
But life is a flash of light in time..and you cant find the words..and all you do is yearn..
Let me know you know its right so we don't have to fight (no, no, no)
Call on a friend who won't pretend..yr. gunna be alright..YEAH Yr. gunna be alright...

And the same three chords keep ringing out..and you don't know what Yr. about..
Theres nothing left beyond Yr. ceiling..yeah Yr. ceiling and Yr. reeling...oh, Yr. reeling out..
Track Name: Teenage Zoo
I pulled the underworld from underneath the tomb..i shot a simple hex beyond a lazy moon
I paced the prom and tried to rearange the tune..I pulled the plug and killed the lights behind the room..

I lit a cigarette and contemplated death..I kissed the coronor and drank amongst the best..
I ran the gauntlet no I walked until i wept..I thanked the governor and canceled out his check..

You are so lawless lately..cover yr. eyes and face me..

We could dream like an island now yr. standing on yr. head..
We could give up the garden for a holiday in bed...

Theres too much work to do..when yr. living in a teenage zoo..
Define yr. antidote tonight....

The posing punks were plunking banjos on the beach..I asked them for a swill and tumbled down the street
We rocked the wedding bells and shuffled to the beat..then ducked into a church to dodge the local heat..

You are so lawless lately..cover yr. eyes and SHAKE ME!

We could dream like an island now yr. standing on yr. head..
We could give up the garden for a holiday in bed...

Theres too much work to do..when yr. living in a teenage zoo..
Define yr. antidote tonight....
Track Name: Modern Dystopia
I feel the burden all around me every time I hit the streets...
We are creating barren monsters and they look like you and me
So bored and insecure, impatient, and impossible to please...
We sell our children short, a life support of images and screens..

Beyond the basement those in power sell our souls and bide their time...
They reach beyond their grasp with tightened clasps they cut is in our prime..
False wars and hallow chores bring guiltiness yet tolerance abides..
Its inconvenient to speak freely from our hearts and from our minds..

Modern Dystopia, yr. breaking all our hearts and all our dreams..
We settled for the middle ground and found that we were never free..
The pressures building as the undertow keeps pulling out to sea..
Our hopes and dreams and wrecked and ruined, paranoia, tyranny...
Track Name: Wear It 'Round Yr. Wrist
We pulled the heavens all apart and sang along with tiny bliss...
She said don't leave it at the bar go on and wear 'round yr. wrist..
We were determined, on the move, and shaking hands before the blitz..
We promenaded past the pond and played along with confidence

Cry like a castaway..Yr. islands left for good..
The sunlight seems misunderstood

We stormed the city walls we heard the calls ring restless through the night..
The groovy gringos waged the war but they wouldn't stay the fight..
The cops were beating on their chests as we addressed the communists..
She said don't leave it at the bar go on and wear 'round your wrist

Cry like a castaway..Yr. islands left for good..
Left on a lonely day..en route to Hollywood..
Waiting to acclimate..I almost think I should..
The sunlight seems misunderstood

Go on and wear it 'round yr. wrist...
Track Name: Drowned
Running away this time you ought to know..considering all the little things you've shown..
After the pain, the anger comes and goes..theres no one there..theres nothing left to know..

Sometimes you hate the world and ache for more..and other times Yr. faking it, Im sure..
To turn in yr. grave alive will leave you low...Yr. lashing out..and all Yr. friends are sore..

You could turn around..and watch the moves you make restore the time you waste..
You could spin around..and pick me up and never let me down...

Now pull Yr. heart back towards the ground..
Before Yr. little world is drowned...

Running away this time you ought to know..considering all the little things you've shown..
Track Name: Aster's Shrub
Asters shrub.. you've given enough.. you've fallen in love..with all the dumb things that Yr. dreaming of..

I want to confess..I wanted the best...but its anybody's guess...with what you'll do without Yr. hateful mess..
Take the path you won't regret..

Chase your heart and love you will possess
Fade into the universe instead..

Chase your heart and love you will possess
Fade into the universe again..
