mudslide autumn empty

trash bag water sit down

It's true I swear it, never doubt it again
ooh you know it's real it's true, it's

you who left me moons ago
boo hoo wah wah you should know

maybe na-na nevermore

(mudslide) you heard about it
(autumn) now you're without it
(empty) still, don't doubt it
let BUBBA SLIDE

(trashbag) don't throw it out
(water) there is a drought
(sit down) up in the clouds
let BUBBA SLIDE

ooh you ooh you know it's real
It's true I swear it, never doubt it again
ooh you know it's real it's true it’s..
real life comes through twice again

TIRED OF TALKIN’

oh the exception to the rule it excites me
i'm never hip to feeling safe and warm
yes the reflection in your drool it invites me
yes it's the calm right up until the storm

oh yes I'm tired of walkin'
TIRED OF TALKIN’  yea

i hear the forty­-three seconds of silence
preceded only by my second wind
i need that orderly beckoning to violence
that keeps the other beast from climbing in

oh yes I'm tired of walkin'
TIRED OF TALKIN’  yea

you never hear about the other side
the one that takes you there
you never get beyond that foolish pride
although you get inside my hair

i think I'm turning into twenty machines
i'm feeling quite under the weather
oh yes it's dirty when your mind is so clean
i fear i'm changing for the better

oh yes I'm tired of moving
no improving, no

the glass is full when it is upside down
i'm looking back into the louder
you only taste me when I'm making sounds
you only drink if it is powder

oh yes you're tired of blinking
tired of thinking, yea

i get a feeling from this purple breeze
that I will never be another
i've got plan to plant a seed
and i will talk amongst each other

FUTURE 86

EIGHTY five years in my head
still alive and you're killing them dead
you said you liked it
you said you liked it you did

and still we move down the road
i think the city's still where I'll go

the FUTURE is coming now
seventeen times I told you
melody winds, unfolds you

the FUTURE is coming now
seventeen times I told you
melody winds

flip the gear right to reverse
did you hear?
there's no time to rehearse
you said you liked it
you said you liked it you did

and still we move down the road
i think the city is where i’ll go

CLUB FOOT

so inviting, so exciting

looks like you're walkin' on your ankles
yet you move so smooth across that floor
(to the right, to the left, you step)
you've got one hundred reasons why
you supply the right style and there's more
(two more, one right, one left)

you could be the boss (you know this)
we could be the one (i tell you)
you could be the two (you tell me)
never be the first one there
(ya never had a dream) in your life
(and though it doesn't seem quite right)
it's only ‘cause you move all night you're never sleeping

you never thought we'd be meeting again (oh no!)
but now they tell us we're the closest of friends (uh huh!)
i hate to feel just like a means to an end (no good!)
but take me there I've got a message to send
CLUB FOOT!

so exciting, so inviting

i tell you never take for granted the things
that you've been granted from the start
(your mind, my love, mankind)
then have the guts to know you're stupid
and soon you'll see you're pretty smart
(it's true, have faith, we do)

you could be the boss (you know this)
we could be the one (i tell you)
you could be the two (you tell me)
never be the last one there
(ya can't get a word in) edgewise
(but everybody heard it) two times!
(they’re waiting on the verdict)
that's fine but they will never hear it

i never thought i'd be sleeping again (oh no!)
but now they tell us that we're dreaming my friends (uh huh!)
i hate to feel just like a creep on a bender (no good!)
but i got the message, i'm returning to sender

CLUB FOOT!

moves so smooth yea
never sleeping
one right, one left

T.V.

well my mind it moves a mile a minute
my heart is hurting' everyday
my soul is catching fire, no, i ain't no liar
listen to me when i say

that you fooled me one too many times
and you’ve crossed me twenty more
in a daze every night but I'm mourning the likes of you
weaker than a month before

now these people they're talkin’ about me
oh but they don't hear a word i say
and they never once told me why they think they know me
when they don't even know my name

and they've fooled me one too many times
and they’ve crossed me plenty more
it's only right that i put up a fight
because now its time to settle the score

i'm taking back the power with remote control buttons
on the hour, this is the time, i know it's sudden
but I'll never get it done unless I learn to have some fun
without you muting me T.V., it's time to

(Bleep out) every single distraction
(Seek out) every critical action
(Freak out) i think that i’m crazy right through to the end
start it up again

now the television ain't that funny
but beep beep he's got a mind of his own
he sits you in your chair, gets you halfway there
but he never gets you home

and he's fooled me one too many times
and he's crossed me a million more
it's a cool mint light but a foolish plight
for a freak tryin to get out that door

this'll be my one shot, so i better not miss it
and i've not got a whole lotta time to get with it
i'm an old dog soon i can't stay tuned
i gotta set me free T.V. it's time to...

(bleep out) every single distraction
(seek out) every critical action
(freak out) i said i'll  be crazy right through to the end
start it up again

i know i'm better without you but you're a part of me
i'm so sorry to doubt you
can you find it in your heart to forgive me please T.V.

i need you in my life yea, every night and every day
i'll make it right, yea i promise you never again to stray
just take me back into your circuits i know we can make it work
because you’re just what i need T.V. you help me

(bleep out) all those things so improper
(keep out) all the pain yea you my doctor
(freak out) i think that i'll be crazy right through to the end
now start it up again

PHYSICAL CHALLENGE

this is a PHYSICAL CHALLENGE

on your mark
get yourself set
just before
it is time to go

when you can't find the answer to
one of life's many questions
you can always just opt into
one my best suggestions

then they send it right back to you
you have two ways to win it
you can look deep inside your mind
or just race to the finish

E.Y.E. (LOOKIN’ GOOD)

if you are sure of anything then you have got a lot to bring to the table
if you're in need of something new, there is so much that you can do if you're able

but with such sticky, icky, tricky little lives
you'll get it done much more quickly through the eyes when you're LOOKIN’ GOOD
yea you LOOK so GOOD when you lie
yea you LOOK so GOOD to the E.Y.E.

when you are trying to progress and it all turns into a mess you're frustrated
(don't you just hate it?)
when you've just about had enough, well then it's time to get tough and elated
(oh yea now you've made it)

you needn’t utter but a flutter of the lips
that’s when your silence and reflection eclipse it's cuz you're LOOKIN’ GOOD
yea you LOOK so GOOD when you lie
yea you LOOK so GOOD to the E.Y.E.

X.Y.Z. (FEELIN’ TOUGH)

arrogant artificial architects are all
behaving brilliantly berserk
carnivorous canary cutting corners cause
direction directly diverts
even eventual everlasting everythings
fall flat forget fullfilling fate
go-getters getting going, godless gremlins give
heavenly hell harmonic hate

communicate!
it's not too late!
row your boat, it's sinking
but there's still time!

illegitimate immitations innate in
jumping jack jill just jubilates
killing kinetic karma kindles kinder kids
long lost love leaking liberates
mischievous mermaids moving many million miles
never negating nothing no
outstandingly ordinary objects object
purposely pushing pinnacles

excommunicate, send them off
why? cuz it's too late
count down to zero
your boat is sinking
feelin' tough, let go, no thinking

quietly question questions quickly quantify
rewards regarding reality
such sweet sedation singing simple silent songs
time ticks to tweak triviality
under useful umbrellas uselessness unwinds
venomous victors villify
we worthless wounded wonks willingly wait while well wishers wish wishing wells were wise
we won't win will we? well, why wait? we

X -
communicate
send them off
Y -
cuz it's too late
count down to
Z -
ro your boat is sinking
feelin' tough let go no thinking


SNAP YOUR FINGERS

who do you love? (you babe)
baby how do you plead? (guilty)
tell me what do you want? (nothing)
s-wow! SNAP YOUR FINGERS!
swow! SNAP YOUR FINGERS singin’

hey-ey ey Hey-ey-ey

how do you walk? (this way)
what do you need? (nothin')
talkin' to me now!

Hey-ey ey Hey-ey-ey

you’re talkin’ to me now

ELECTRIC HABITAT

choose a side
life collides inside you
anywhere, anytime

change the tide
coincide with action
anyway, nevermind

startastic waves
i can't complain i'm feeling alright today
up in the clouds the creatures shouting out loud
i hear them them shriek, squeek
one with the backdrop
because i know when the last stop is here then it's
off with their heads off with their heads
what they said
off with their heads off with their heads
what they said

hey you, stay tuned
pray you stay cool
if you’re one of them

are ya’? are ya’? are ya’? are ya’?
are ya one of them?

play with time
send sand seeping upward
bend the light
end the lie

close your eyes
open up your head and
spill it out
fill your mind

fantastic blue
elastic facts color true feelings
ELECTRIC HABITAT
you're brain's healing
now how bout that?
insane dealings
nowhere to go
except back down there below reason
HABITAT
it's hunting season
how bout that?
we can't believe it


PICKIN’ UP (WHERE YOU LEFT OFF)

it's a brand new day
so tell me what you feel inside

far away
someone's thinking you should feel alright

now give it away to somebody you don't know
then you'll hear them say, this is how we all go
you know we hurt ourselves in the places that we take love
we've got to put ourselves into the places that we make love

i'm PICKIN’ UP WHERE YOU LEFT OFF
‘cause this is how I feel
let's make it real and I said I love
and why would I waste your time?

some would say
you're waiting just to see the light  

but your brightest day
is coming at you on your darkest night

then you give it away to somebody you don't know
then you hear them say, this is how we all go
you know we hurt ourselves in the places where we take love
we've got to put ourselves into the places where we make love
