Track Name: The Big Wheel
I want the Big Wheel
inside eternity
I want to work it
watch it grow
I want the Big Wheel
inside eternity
I want to roll it
watch it work out

I want the big wheel
Track Name: Bedside Drama
you're nothing but a bedside drama
with your feet in the air and your head in the clouds
you're nothing but a bedroom trauma
like defeat on the breath of a face in the crowd

you're nothing that i can't see right through
that reminds me of you
you're nothing that i can't seem to get around
or around or around or around

you're something of a novice charm
with a wound for a smile like a giftless child
you're something that could do me harm
if i stayed in your way could i stay for awhile

you're something that i can't seem to get away from no matter how hard i try
you're something that sticks in my head
and goes around and around and around and around

you're something that i don't want to be afraid to say i don't like
you're something that i should be afraid of
Track Name: Farmer's Dog
Down with the farmer's dog
Down in the chicken shit
Stuck like a muddy pig
Down like the farmer's dog

Et al

Down with the farmer's dog
Out in the muddy field
Piles of chicken shit
Down like the muddy dog

Et al
Track Name: I'm Nigger
I'm nigger - You alone, with irrelevant eyes
You alone try to hide your kind
You alone in a silent night
I'm nigger - I portray angry vigilant scum
You and I have infected some
I, in the red, without a gun

I'm nigger - more mortal than you'd figure
I'm nigger - I ought to pull the trigger

I'm nigger - you alone can reveal my name
You are home I'm on the range
I'm alone without a knife
I'm nigger - I portray angry vigilant scum
You alone have infected some
You're alone without a gun

I'm nigger - more mortal than you'd figure
I'm nigger - I want to pull the trigger
Track Name: Mr. Big Time
Mr. Big Time
you walk around the town
with the pig slime
you walked upon the water

in the big time
all around shine
you make the big time

Mr. Big Time
you waffle all the time
with the pig slime
you walked upon the water

Mr. Big Crime
hold the big signs
doggy dog rhymes

With a swastika head
in spite not in dread
i spiked you instead
i wished you were dead

i looked at the rest
i thought not in jest
a crime i confessed
i wish you dead

Mr. Big Crime
you're making mountain time
suck the moonshine
you walked upon the water

Mr. Big Crime
with the pig sublime
all around sunshine
Track Name: Emergency
Emergency total disgrace
gotta go to that empty place
way out of mind where you can't be found
way down deep in your underground

Emergency tumultuous disease
the germ will grow wherever it please
no mind of me or what I perceive
Emergency Emergency!

Emergency i will take you to thee
i wanna go where the service is free
where document can go to the breeze
Emergency Emergency!
Track Name: The Decorate
in the family standing on the altar
near the cauldron is the deadly father
handing down poor visions to the cynical sons
while Big Brother is on the run
they are sons of dogs
and they have come so far to see the Decorate

wrenched religions serving wretched homelands
indecisive learning concepts out of hand
i'm in the alley searching for a dollar
and I'm every mother's farthest son
we are sons of dogs
and we have come this far to see the Decorate

situations down among the front lines
reservations about doing prime time
revenge and anger for the deadly stranger
searching for that solace in that special place
we are sons of gods
and we have almost come to be the Decorate

we are sons of gods and we have almost come to be the Decorate
Track Name: Severed Ties
Severed ties
Amidst the battle I don't wanna fight
Within the conflict of the hard to hide
i'm in the country of the...

Severed ties
I'm in the body I personified
within the conflict of the hard to hide
i'm in a conflict with the big dream of you
Big dream of you...

Severed ties
i'm in the body I personified
along the valley of the amplified
i'm in the baggage of your dreams

Severed ties
a little ratty, hollow of my eyes
within the dragons I personified
the severed ties with you... severed ties with you

Severed ties
I'm in the valley I personified
within the baggage you have never tried
i'm in the background with my dream

Severed ties
I'm in the valley I personified
within narcotics I have never tried
i'm giving in...
Track Name: Turpentine
The sound of cells resigning
Industriously dying
I'm not opposed to lying
In the corners of your mind
Where the turpentine's not dry

Fragments of the castles
Engendered in the vessel
Supported by the tressels
And the fortress of the mind
Where the turpentine resides

I pick the right roads and I'll swallow down the moonshine
Endangered by this energy that hides in dark trees
I'm godless and I'm crude inside a fallout disaster
A critical anemia so still

Ensconced in metamorphous
amphibious and porous
A harsh sardonic chorus
In the flora of your mind
With the seedlings left behind

Mechanical disaster
A biblically damned bastard
Historically much faster
Perseverance of the blind
and the turpentine in mind

Dream dream dream like a vision of perfection
Voluptuous and sensual to the point of despair
I've freed my mind of celestial cobwebs
Exposing what was never really there

I pick the right roles and I wander in your footstep
I'm bigger than the energy that hides in dark trees
I skip the wrong rules and I wallow in the mistakes
The truth means precious little to me
Track Name: In My Eyes
walking in sunshine
troubles left behind
i'm walking in sunshine
it's seemingly unkind
the trouble with this kind
it's kind of a night time
i'm walking in sunshine
away from the rough ride
in my eyes

walking on water
away from the slaughter
i'm walking away from
my trouble today and
i'm speaking to youth
from a gin and vermouth and
i'm walking on water
it's only a slaughter
in my eyes

you calibrate a different kind of fear
than the man who lives and looks in here

i'm troubled and distant
i shouldn't have listened
i'm walking in trouble
afflicted in double
arrested congested
roach, ant, lice infested
i'm walking in double time
away from the sunshine
in my eyes
Track Name: Try Living Inside Of The Brain
I'm drugs I'm pain I'm the cost I am all illusion
I've a need not addressed I've been lost I've been out of season
I allude to a truth I've been told's not a lot of reason
i exclude all of you in a mood, not a mood, a treason

try living inside of the brain
where the truth's divided and going insane
die living inside of the brain
i'm dying to reveal my pain

I'm dying to reveal all I've lost but I have no choice
it's the same old run of the mill that the saber sawed
It's the same old drain on the rusted funky metal jaw
Cry Kingdom come and throw curves at the people in charge

try living inside of the brain
where the truth's divided and going insane
die living inside of the brain
i'm dying to reveal the pain

I'm vicious I'm a sinner I did dinner I'm aloft with desire
In the Drive In with the riboflavin dusted thoust fire
I'm in drive I'm in alive with or without my attire
Come see my love and me dance wickedly in front of the pyre

I'm dying to reveal all I've lost but I have no choice....
Track Name: Mouse
i'm instrumental to the way that you live
i've got a bead on the things that you give
i'm lost and buried and i'm out of control
i missed the mark but i made a big hole

i'm a mouse in your mind
and i eat swiss cheese holes
in the mural of your life
and i'm on a roll

i'm detrimental to the facts you deny
i caught a wave and a whiff of your life
it's in the news in a front page delight
Its point of view is your backdoor to life

i'm a mouse in your mind
and i eat swiss cheese holes
in the mural of your life
and i'm on a roll
Track Name: In My World
The richest man alive
I'm well below his will
I'm driven but not driving
On a ride to western hell

I contemplate the freeway
I'm lost amongst its build
Its conscience moves so fast
I'm under it's spell

In my world
my sweet sweet world

The future of the past
Is not about to shrug
If it figures in the back
Then its about a lazy drug

The pretense of the fact
I tossed among the ring
Its frequence moves so fast
Its the only thing

In my world
my sweet sweet world
Track Name: Twitching Priest
child molester is loose inside of my head - in my priests costume
gonna fill the jesuits full of lead
gonna make the devils face turn red
gonna lay the virgin mary in her bed

gonna make one helluva mark on the world at large

gonna make god wish to god he was dead - in my priests costume
gonna take away the food from the underfed
gonna keep the daughters of the world unwed
gonna make the devils face turn red

gonna make one helluva mark on the world at large

gonna lay the weight of the world on your head
gonna escalate some suicidal dread
gonna lay the virgin mary in her bed
gonna let loose the child molester in my head
Track Name: Give A Damn
you don't give a damn
i don't understand
why you don't give a damn
why I don't understand

you drive by my sweat
you I deride but I don't regret

thou are hard to beat
i have a bead on thee
malice striking guides your shame
you and I are jinxed within the game

you drive by slowly
you sweep past me but don't show up
you never win by shouting
you sweep past me but don't back up

you are bigamy
I hide my eyes to thee
we're incomparable
you're indecipherable

you keep wild among sparse times
you undesire can be your game
you incoherent but still sublime
Track Name: Paper Sea
Spinning down a spiral mind set all the words have all been off set
Sailing on a paper sea
Waves are crashing all around me all the notes are screaming off key
Dying in the paper sea

Hanging on to broken mirrors trying to cut with broken scissors
Mired in the paper sea
Writing dreams with hidden meanings all your thoughts are thought in screaming
Tired of the paper sea

Washed ashore up on the boardwalk in the sand the sand shark landmark
Sailing on a paper sea
Waves still crashing all in violence they're tired of the seashore silence
Drinking from the paper sea

Make a wave within the wallow all the sea so hard to swallow
Mired in the paper sea
Paper cups or paper coffins take a break and take a walk
vacation from the paper sea

Paper sea on the horizon
Paper sea approaching me
Paper sea advancing quickly
Paper sea is drowning me

Paper sea is all around me
Paper sea will cut me quickly
Paper sea is all around me
Paper sea will gladly have me
Track Name: nyc
Down in bunkers / caught in crossfires
On the streets of this crumbling empire
Sad sights bad plights / blinding headlights
In the trenches with the subway gate fires

New York City a road black nightmare
New York City a street crime bad scare
Broken down barrier in an ethnic group smear
When I'm in I gotta get out of there

In the nighttime / on the front line
See your neighbor end up in the headlines
Homeless haven-a-hamburger craving
Starving artists strung out on the pavement

New York City it's Hell in an oven
New York City with no help from above
Broken down barrier in an ethnic group smear
When I'm in - get me out of here

NY NY - a Hell of a town
I wouldn't mind if it burned to the ground
Take me down the great white way
Go down on me - on Broadway
Track Name: Slow Motion Deception
Slow motion deception
Total lack of prescription
On back alley streets with bags at your feet
Waiting for investigation

Free-form expression
Over dose on your perception
In the market place without any face
Makes up all your indiscretions

Feeble minded indecisions
Busted up by misdirection
Running down the street from the cop on the beat
Just escaped a close inspection

Brow beaten depression
No talent intervention
Gotta dig myself of all the debris
Gotta get a new connection

You discover danger, really thoughtless deeds
Stark and angry strangers turn you on to disease
Will you cash & carry yourself into deep freeze?
Smoking something potent crying down on your knees

Walking into the valley with a fistful of bills
Walk out of the alley with a headful of thrills
Climbing out the window toward the ladder to hell
Walking thru a corridor of acrid smells

Search for stapled messiah
On the back road to desire
Load the stash and put the flint to the match
Jump from flame into the fire

In dream world choir
Sing the notes to fuel the fire
Count the sheep as you're nodding to sleep
Could you get it any higher?
