Track Name: Sandworm
If I was a rock
Standing in one spot
I'd hold my ground against the wind that turns me in to sand

If I was the sand
I would lend a hand
Eroding rock to piles of grains where worms could go and hide

Ba-da bop-bop
Ba-da bop-bop
Ba-da bop-bop bop-bop bop-bop

If I were a worm
I would churn the earth
And I would cross the desert sands to curl up by your side

Track Name: Swimmin’ With Efficiency
I fucked with the wrong guys
Now I'm on a dock at 12 o'clock, that's midnight
Feet in a bucket now
Knees start to buckle now
Maybe I can reason with them
We can work it out

But when I felt that wet cement between my toes
I knew that I was seeing Davey Jones
But I thought that there might be a way out
But when that water hit my lungs I felt a twinge of doubt

And now I know that there's no hope for me at all
There's nothing underneath to break my fall
So goodbye
I guess this is what it feels like to die

I'm up in a private Learjet
Heading for The Netherlands, that's Holland
Don't mind the turbulence
The smiling flight attendant
Reassuring everything is safe and sound

But when I saw her smile had turned into a frown
I knew that we were going to the ground
But I thought that there might be a way out
But when that second engine failed I had a twinge of doubt

And now I know that there's no hope for me at all
There's nothing underneath to break my fall
So goodbye
I guess this is what it feels like to die
Track Name: Tubular Food
TUBULAR FOOD

I want a hot dog

I love a hot dog

Can I have a hot dog?
I'd really love a hot dog please!

Track Name: The Core
The sun is old, a lantern to the Earth
But now I’m told there’s a limit to its burn
As the sun grows cold it gets a little brisk
So it’s time to find a fix

My first instinct was to reignite the orb
With some sort of bomb that it might absorb
But the chances of it blowing us to bits
Seemed too much a risk to take

So what now, dear brain?

Well we could find another sun, and pull it very near
But it’s much too hot and would burn the rope, I fear
Maybe move off Earth, but all our stuff is here
And it’s too much stuff to take

So what now, dear brain?

We could drench the Moon in a ton of gasoline
Then we’ll strike a match, make the sun from scratch
Well it might get hot, but it also might not
And my breath begins to freeze

We could split the Earth with a surgical slice
Then divide the halves with a special device
We’ll scoop out the core like an avocado seed
And then float it up on a cosmic breeze

As the core ascends I can feel my toes again
Everything is fine, we were just in time
As my skin is warmed, I stare up at the core
And it glows like my heart in the sky
Track Name: Drink Thief
What did you order?
That's what I ordered
I'm gonna sip this, gin and tonic with lime
Then I rest it
On a surface
Now I want it back, but I don't know which one's mine

So I'm gonna drink yours
And I'm gonna drink mine
I've done it before
I'll do it all night

'Cause I'm a drink thief
I'm a drink thief
You don't want it back so I'm double-fisting yet again
'Cause I'm a drink thief
I'm a drink thief
Now I got a drink stuck in each of my red hands

I'm not trying to be rude
I just can't keep track of booze
How can I help it when they all look the same?
When I reach for
Delicious beverage
Who's it might be doesn't even cross my brain

So I'm gonna drink yours
And I'm gonna drink mine
I've done it before
I'll do it all night

'Cause I'm a drink thief
I'm a drink thief
You don't want it back so I'm double-fisting yet again
'Cause I'm a drink thief
I'm a drink thief
Now I got a drink stuck in each of my red hands

I didn't mean it
(My red hands)
I didn't mean it
(My red hands)
I'm a drink thief
(My red hands)

'Cause I'm a drink thief
Drink thief
You don't want it back so I'm double-fisting yet again
'Cause I'm a drink thief
A fuckin' drink thief
Now I got a drink stuck in each of my red hands
Track Name: Whale Shark
Teeth are not bones
Tusks are teeth
Horns are like fingernails
Antlers shed and then fall off

Sheep are not goats
Whale shark is a fish

A rooster is a cock
A hen is a chicken
A rooster and a hen and a cock are a chicken

A hog is a pig
Goose is not a duck
Track Name: You are of no worth.
You are of no worth.
Your life is meaningless.
You'll never be satisfied.

You are of no worth.
Your life is meaningless.
The only hope for you is death.

All of your self-doubts are real.
Everybody laughs behind your back.
Once you finally kill yourself,
No one will remember you when you're gone.
Track Name: Everybody Move! / Studio 54
It's not my fault being so big and strong
I like to fight with skill and skill alone
I could kill you now
So everybody move!
Everybody move!
Everybody move!

Use different moves when fighting twenty men
Pick up a rock and throw it at his head
I hope we win
Now everybody move!
Everybody move!
Everybody move!

Anybody want a peanut?

We call them ceilings, they sit on our head
Track Name: Signs
Signs, they never point to no. They always point to yes
Does that answer your question? I guess not
Lines, they’re never pointing straight, but always in a row
Does that answer your question? I guess so

What keeps stopping you from falling from thin air?
Was it different when you weren’t stuck up there?

With you, it’s always up and down, but never back and forth
But did it solve the problem? I’m not sure
I have nothing left to say, have no other recourse
What seems to be the problem? I’m not sure

What keeps stopping you from falling from thin air?
Was it different when you weren’t stuck up there?

What keeps stopping you from falling from thin air?
Was it different when you weren’t stuck up there?
Track Name: Necrobaraxus
Where once we lived in peace, we now live in fear
Shrouded now in baleful clouds, where once our skies were clear
We know not how to save ourselves from this our chosen fate
If God should ever show his face, I pray he’s not too late

Burn!
And infect
All you see
With necrofire

Sickness
Takes effect
And spreads disease
With necrofire

Blackened scales of rotten death reeking of decay
Look to the sky for salvation only to find flames
I hear him in the night atop his cursed spire
Day or night, it matters not. The demon does not tire

Burn!
And infect
All you see
With necrofire

Sickness
Takes effect
And spreads disease
With necrofire

In his den. Home again. Rest for now.

Talons tear at boiling flesh infected with his fire
As tattered wings take flight, the dead arise from funeral pyres
The scent of those I love still lingers on his breath
Burning all I know, reanimating death

Burn!
And infect
All you see
With necrofire

Sickness
Takes effect
And spreads disease
With necrofire
Track Name: Kiai
Oh, kiai
A ninja am I
I creep in the night
And take people’s lives

Some people think that you have to be tiny
But allow me clear things up 'cause I’m not tiny
Some people think that you have to be Asian, well…
Let me set the record straight 'cause I’m not Asian

Oh, kiai
I am samurai
I’m ready to die
Or take my own life

Some people think that you have to have armor, but…
That's simply not the case 'cause I don’t own armor
And some people think that you have to be serious, well…
Let me make sure we'll on the same page here 'cause I’m not so serious

Oh, kiai
Whoah, kiai
Oh, kiai
Whoah, kiai
Track Name: Photograph
I was thinking about a photograph I had taken, I haven’t seen it in years.
It was of you and your beautiful smile. I still love you, though it’s been quite a while.

What’s the point of view if you’d just open up your eyes?
Is there something more to life than your own paradise?
Break the mold and save the world. Just take a look outside.
I’m not blaming you, but it’s your world too.

I remember what you said to me in November right before your plane had to leave.
You said, “Darlin’, this whole world’s crumblin’ down. Children are starving. That’s why I just can’t stick around.”

What’s the point of view if you’d just open up your eyes?
Is there something more to life than your own paradise?
Break the mold and save the world. Just take a look outside.
I’m not blaming you, but it’s your world too.

Who do these kids think they are?
They’re bringing down the neighborhood, they...
Take them away, take them far, and make them stay wherever they are.

I was reading about this kid in his teens, and he was bleeding right through his t-shirt and blue jeans, and he was crying, but it wasn’t for him. His mother was dying, and she just wouldn’t wake up!

What’s the point of view if you’d just open up your eyes?
Is there something more to life than your own paradise?
Break the mold and save the world. Just take a look outside.
I’m not blaming you
I’m not blaming you
I’m not blaming you, but it’s your world too.

Track Name: Kill People
A fuckin’ Kevlar vest won’t protect you if I bleed you to death
Cut off your limbs and record you beggin’ me to stop
Sample in songs, send me straight to the top
But there won’t be no more mutha fuckin’ music shops after my holocaust
Execute the human race one by one
Don’t need a gun I’ll use my fingernails
Tearin’ faces, tradin’ places, wouldn’t wanna be you
Strength in numbers? Fuck that! I murder two by two

I like to kill people
I murder all the time (constantly)
Kill people
And I don’t know why (incessantly)
Kill people
I got a lust for the blood of your mother; your sister father cousin and brother

It seems you need a spellin’ lesson, let us begin
It goes big A little A - R – O – N
The first A is for Agony inflicted on you
The second A’s for Apathy I feel for you
The R is for Remorse that I no longer need
And the O is for Obituaries no one will be left to read
N is for Nothing that you can do to stop me
N is for Nothing that you can do to top me

I like to kill people
I murder all the time (constantly)
Kill people
And I don’t care why (incessantly)
Kill people
I got a lust for the blood of your mother; your sister father cousin and brother

Track Name: Every Father is a Motherfucker
Mothers are a symbol of fertility and life
But that's just half of a larger equation, there's another side

Fathers may not have to cope with all that she goes through
But the bun doesn't put itself in the oven so give the dads their due

Every father is a motherfucker
They fucked your mom and grandmom and every kind of mom

They plant the seeds of family trees from which we all descend
Forgive the jokes and jeans and breath, it happens now and then

So sometimes you get mad at dad and think he's in the wrong
But remember that you're only here because he fucked your mom

Every father is a motherfucker
They fucked your mom and grandmom and every kind of mom

[bridge lyrics not fit to print]

Every father is a motherfucker
They fucked your mom and grandmom and every kind of mom
