Oh yes... She's in the fruiting stages, yes And she's juzz a broodin' faded mess So don't make her mean... don't make her mean I guess... She's juzz a bitch this time of month And she's juzz a vicious stuck-up cunt so don't make a scene, don't make a scene Rollin' out before she's off the clock She got you livin' under a rock got you livin' under a rock Bends you over bales of clover, though She got a safety word you don't know ...got a safety word you don't know know know know know know know Oh yes... .... You are a spot on the ceiling of... her planetarium You are a lot like a jellyfish... in her aquarium... Oh yes...

When the winter thaws inside you all the boughs that used to hide you move away so light can find you let the cold wind blow behind you every season has a reason, heaven knows Every diamond in the gutter every window locked and shuttered every heart you fail to flutter every word you fail to utter makes a library of nostalgia and regret Wrote a library of nostalgia and regret this is what I get tried to write my way home I know that you never really get what yer owed that you'll never catch a kiss I don't blow that you like a lighter load... you can't always get it, though Every coupon in the ghetto every calmly drawn stiletto every hill you couldn't pedal every crack in yer falsetto is a nightmare both recurring and severe Time will ride you like a beater she's a dirty rotten cheater she's a lock and you can't pick it she's a clock and you can't trick it like a library of nostalgia and regret Wrote a library of nostalgia and regret this is what I get tried to write my way home I know... that you never really get what yer owed that you'll never catch a kiss I don't blow that you're never really rich 'til yer sold...
3.
Well... When I was little I was easily amused had a box, had a rock, had a wild imagination My education was a haze of malaise but I could read, write and everything... Repetition isn't easy to beat I repeat, I repeat... every tune I ever whistled And this'll be the death of me, I believe dead-alive in a child-like state The more that you say that yer life is OK and you like it that way no you don't because you don't like anything The more that you say that you get what you take and you give half away no you don't because you don't give anything
4.
I want my T.V. privileges reinstated I tried yer way and, um... I didn't get a thing done, do you? I never get a single thing done... Only now after everything goes around and there isn't anybody left to burn it's a lucky thing that we found after hours in the shower Now it's wreckin' every secong yer away every move is a mistake That's the only risk you take Oh yer mom and dad are old and rattled too 'cause they don't know what to do and if they did they wouldn't do it anyway neither would you... Only now after everyone turns around and there isn't anybody left to turn it's a tricky thing to rebound after hours in the show Now some dummy tried to steal my clientele so I pushed him down a well now he's suckin' cock in hell Oh my mom and dad are old and rattled too because they don't know what to do and if they did they wouldn't do it anyway neither would I... I want my T.V. privileges reinstated I tried yer way and, um... I didn't get a thing done, do you?

6.
Sign a line and yer caught in an ancient scam Wined and dined on the spot, makes you feel like a big man Right away my friends were on T.V. By the way I'm lookin' at you but you can't see me Right away my friends were on T.V. There's a revenue share but my dog doesn't care Right away my friends were on T.V. By the way I'm lookin' at you but you can't see me I'm workin' with toothpicks and glue I shoulda gone to trade school I'm workin' with toothpicks and glue

Get Yer Fill 01:34
Touch my hand when you get yer fill when you get yer fill but you never will You can get more money you can get more pills but you never will get yer fill Tie me down to the ol' railroad to the ol' railroad where the whistle blows Well it might sound funny and it might sound bold but you never will get yer fill Things are changin' and yer body's agin' and yer turnin' pages on the back of the bus on the back of the bus And the leaves are turnin' and you're preachin' sermons like yer Howard Thurman on the bus I'm a man with a million needs with a million needs and a bag of seeds Well I might plant somethin' and it might grow green but I never will get my fill
8.
over the ages we have become full of outrageous paranoid junk open up yer eyes don't wait for a good time you can analyze and magnify a flea until you can't see it open up yer eyes no such thing as a good time you can analyze and magnify a flea until you can't see it comes in stages over the years and it rattles cages and brings you to tears open up yer eyes don't wait for a good time you can analyze and magnify a flea until you can't see it...

11.
There's a place where the reckless are bound We'll be livin' there when they smoke out this town I like you fine, Irene Can't change my mind about Irene She's a mess-- a 100 proof mess bullet in her ear, and a book on her chest But I like you fine, Irene can't change my mind about Irene When we wake up, I'll reach out to my broken-english friend and we'll get a room if you really want to... I like you fine, Irene...

13.
Save some face Nobody taught you to be that way You will be haunted by what you say and it all seems a little too dangerous Change yer ways You better pick up the mess you made Nobody taught you to be that way and it all seems a little too dangerous You were ejected from Sunday school for yer coarse reenactments of Blue Lagoon You are a misanthrope in yer messy room and it all seems a little too dangerous You got the mouth of a river too What a terrible waste of a liver You are like a rattlesnake in a petting zoo Like a genuine vessel of evil, now I was the guy who helped move yer mattress over the rail and up to the second floor and I didn't anticipate compensation but who do I have to blow for a "thank you"? Save some face Nobody taught you to be that way You will be haunted by what you say and it all seems a little too dangerous
14.

15.
While I admire yer clean, clean livin' yer girlfriend's givin' me chills... So go drown yer pride in the Mississippi river and bring me my whiskey and pills I've been known to get unpredictable and violent when you threaten the few things that bring me joy So you better lose that smug self-righteous look of superiority and stop clicking yer tongue and waggin' yer goddamn finger in my face I'm a grown man-- I can have a drink or smoke without it being a cry for therapy or religion cuz I pay my bills and contribute to society and love my family too... so go fuck yer moral crusade right up the ass
16.
Night time or dawn, whichever one puts you to sleep is the best space out a lot catch yer death.

Part I A bow-legged troll wandered out for a stroll i was shivering and quivering my cock skipped a beat as she came down my street this was everything i prayed for, jesus i bound her and greased up my fingertips cinched up her gag and jacked my fist fast up her cunt there were cobwebs that clung to her carved edges deeply there, much deeper 'til i'm sprung built my whole reputation on rotten thoughts i went to a priest to confess or whatever i met sister heather. god put us together my pants were a mess as i lifted her dress she was blistered there-- i kissed her there. she bled hallelujah Part II the kids at the mall get the world for free they see the shapes but they're bent like a fever dream they i'm funny? i ain't trying to be funny the girls on the beach never dug my style because i look like a creep and i talk like gomer pyle you think that's funny? i ain't trying to be. now i'm a card-carrying slob i keep my pants pulled up and a part-time job i'm making money. but i ain't trying to be funny i decry yer savage persecution of my kind i wanna die sometimes. ..because i never want-- nobody ever really wanted to be funny. oh no. now that ain't funny. when the kids at the mall get a load of me they're gonna think i'm a dink but i'm inclined to disagree i think they're funny. nobody wants to be funny i decry yer savage persecution of my kind i wanna die sometimes. ..because i never want-- nobody ever really wanted to be funny. oh no. now that ain't funny.

i hear yer changing the formula, i just got used to yer brew, my ol' lady told me yer changin' up the recipe... I don't know what I'm a-gonna do. i don't know what rhymes with "formula," but I know that "recipe" rhymes with "stressin' me" and that's what you do. if you cater to the haters, the least common denominators will have their voices heard, resulting in a truck stop turd if you pander to the candor of the blander huddled masses the goons will have their way and that;s a shame

The Details 03:08
my pocket's rattling with pills i'm outta style and late on bills my dreams are sealed in by the ruthless winds of winter my spinning head's a child's top which, by and by, is bound to stop and all that's left will be some useless pins and splinters there are no bodies left to pardon in my crawlspace or my garden like some sad symbolic and posthumous gesture i'm still working out the details though i scratched my name across the walls of cheating hearts like bathroom stalls i heard them lying to their husbands like a movie i can't romanticize those years in denver not even in late november that's when all these feelings came back to me there is a drafty vent above me or is that god, and does he love me? he sure has a bastard's way of showing it if so i'm still working out the details though hide in a pile of sheets til you rid yourself of emotion you can lead a life of devotion or lie in your bed my pocket's jingling with change the whole transmission's outta range my words are muffled by the ruthless winds of winter
50.

I Ain't Mean 01:39
i've been shoveling drinks down my throat i tried to go home but i can't find my coat in a chilly part of my healing heart dirty gutters are dripping with icicles in a rocking chair on a slippery stair i'm a bear on a bicycle i ain't mean, i'm five days clean i was feeling victimized holed up in the bathroom with the TV on in a chilly part of my healing heart dirty gutters are dripping with icicles in a rocking chair on a slippery stair i'm a bear on a bicycle i ain't mean, i'm five days clean
