Track Name: It's The Same
it's the same
wake up sweatin dizzy tremblin day after day

people say
they tell me kick it while you can but i'm still too afraid

come with me as you are
we'll trip the light all night in every jp hipster dive bar

last night I had another row with my girl
she said you don't understand that it's a complicated world
i checked out, hit the bars and when i saw the news later
i just couldn't cope with newtown so I called my dealer

come with me as you were
and we'll get back to where we started if we stick together

television
my television
pageantry of tragedy is playing ad infinitum

it's the same
wake up sweatin dizzy tremblin day after day
Track Name: God Shines His Blessins On Sons Of A Bitch
god shines his blessins on sons of a bitch
the bloody fist the unmarked grave
stay out of our way or you'll vanish and never be missed
god shines his blessins on sons of a bitch

life be all pills all dope all cash
bottles of oxys double of mash
score find you first law find you last

when the warrant is issued you will be warned
all corroborating evidence burned
guilty verdict gonna be overturned

because god shines his blessins on sons of a bitch
the bloody fist the unmarked grave
stay out of our way or you'll vanish and never be missed
god shines his blessins on sons of a bitch

well the hookers ain't working they're filled with junk
cops don't say nothing you got 'em outranked
there's an envelope waiting and they got you to thank

and city hall loves you they'll keep you protected
throw banquets to get you elected and shut the fuck up until you bark directions

/ chorus /

always fear and always silence and disappearances and violence
the doj pardon you for your compliance

so do as we say and you can have it all
resist and you'll face the law and carmen ortiz will come and nail your neck to the wall
she'll nail ya right to the wall

/ chorus /
Track Name: Fresh Milk
i woke up this morning
fell asleep again
didn't get any warning they were after me again
i'm not the kind of man you love, the kind of man you hold
i'm the kind you cut open, full of candy and gold

i woke up this morning, it was the rapture once more
the world's ended so many times i feel like i've lost score
won't you come up and see me if you ain't got better plans
i think i'd look pretty dreamy as the invisible man

fresh milk today
jack jones gonna ease my sick away
i'm getting tired of grey
i hope it all turns out okay

i woke up this morning
can i tell you why
thought i heard someone going thru my supply
i went to investigate when i got knocked to the floor
guess that means it's time to change the locks on my door

fresh milk today
jack jones gonna ease my sick away
i'm getting tired of grey
i hope it all turns out okay
Track Name: Every Girl I Love Is A Junkie
every girl i love is a junkie
needle messianic, living calvary
i'm judas when they're fixed
mother mary when they're sick and alone
they roll away the stone

every girl i loved was a saint
valleys exalted and the rough places plain
they damned me and they saved me, loved me and never forgave me
in terra canunt angeli

the girl i love is a king
worried how she'll be remembered in the songs i sing
if i leave the words unspoken will the spell remain unbroken
the time for strings is over, i've looked over my shoulder
Track Name: Parthenogenesis Blues
last seed of a hangman falling to the ground below
he opens his eyes and screams out no
like moonlight tides and like dust becoming flies i arise
with women's weeping and with hoofbeats of surprise i arrive

my chains a rattlin echo through your haunted halls
i am the bloodstain on your wall
was he a bull or a swan or a rain of gold
was he a raging thunderbolt
i move ahead cuz there's nothing left behind that i can find

rosemary brought me home from the doctor and she screamed what the hell is that
it's got the claws of a wolf and the eyes of a rat
i move ahead cuz there's nothing left behind that i can find

search for my maker, he is nowhere to be found
if he catches up to me i'll gun the bastard down
if he catches up with me i'll toss him in the ground
cuz i move ahead and there's nothing left behind that i can find

last seed of a hangman falling to the ground below
he opens his eyes and screams out no
like tides and moonlight and like dust becoming flies i arise
i move ahead
there's nothing left behind that i can find
Track Name: Medea
you beat up charles darwin on the playground
but his lunch money didn’t buy peace
so your turn your eyes to jason and his argo
and the quest for the golden fleece

so they skin you alive to make bibles
as the plagues spread through the ranks
and at medicine shows and revivals
all the programs gave casual thanks

there’s no hope for you here medea
you cloven-hoofed friday night gal
there are no flowers waiting for you
in my suite at the bates motel

the rumors about you were vicious
said they’d paint your driver’s license black
and they sent you about to guard bridges
between california and iraq

well he told you he would kill you with kindness
and he promised he would make it quick
but when he answered to your royal highness
you should’ve known it was a trick
yeah you should’ve known it was a trick

there’s no hope for you here medea
you cloven-hoofed friday night gal
there are no flowers waiting for you
in my suite at the bates motel

the pets were dead the walls were gory
and you ask me for your sympathy
well we know the villain of this story
and sure and shit that villain ain’t me

the tragedy is now concluded
with jason, that is all she wrote
but you and me we were deluded
let’s set sail in a bigger boat
i think we need a bigger boat

there is still hope for you here medea
you cloven-hoofed friday night gal
there are still flowers waiting for you
in my suite at the bates motel
come on and meet me at the bates motel
Track Name: Sheryl Goes Out And Buys Tighter Jeans
can't understand why everybody's just staring
you got dogs and cats on ladders stuffing boots and licking up the gravy
what else is new
and all your friends think i'm a geek
chica que soy extatique

jackie chip shows up careening like a gypsy truck
yeah he gonna get out and show me around kick it up now all in a stampede tunnel
we got this and that... well are you done?
and your friends think i'm a geek
paro chica que soy extatique

can't understand why everybody's just staring
i got a new world record crawling on the cross bronx with all my closest pals got che che got Lum got nart got fatman
and your friends think i'm a geek
paro chica que soy extatique
Track Name: You Don't Need To Think (Alex H Remix)
think you got no place to go?
well thinking’s so last week bro
in here we’re having fun
all the jams are #1
so you don’t need to think
no you don’t need to think

need some shelter from the storm?
our body heat will keep you warm
pop is my philosophy
get up here and dance with me
cuz you don’t need to think
no you don’t need to think

chaucer, dante
who needs that shit?
this is l.a.
in the past we had ambition
now we’re all on television
cuz we don’t need to think
no we don't need to think
