Track Name: Beautiful Peephole
I wish I had those hours back
that I spent staring at the beautiful peephole
I probably could have made a mint but I didn't
cuz I was staring at the beautiful peephole
It always seemed to tell me what I wanted
what I needed to have right now
but it was thin on the whys and the hows
We've got to get a bigger share of who's there
staring at the beautiful peephole
We'll rake it in hand over fist because they can't resist
staring at the beautiful peephole
Tell the people what to want then give them what we sell
We'll hold the strings. It won't mean anything
They'll wish they had those hours back
that they spent staring at the beautiful peephole
They probably could have made a mint but they didn't
cuz they were staring at the beautiful peephole
All the things that anyone would want to see
and who you'd want to be will be gathered there
There's no resisting. It's a thrill
It all got stuck there in my brain like a stain
from staring at the beautiful peephole
Tell the people what to want then give them what we sell
We'll hold the strings
And they'll do anything
Track Name: Shake That Ass
You fill a room like oxygen. Suddenly I can breathe again
You've got confidence I can't comprehend
I see you every now and then
You must have been conceived in sin
Fuck, you make me feel young again
It feels like I'm enrolled in a difficult class
because I've really got to study when you shake that ass
You shake that ass
You must have been an awful kid
I bet you never did what your parents wanted
Obedience, that's not your shtick
The way you walk, you're gonna start a revolution
You must have been conceived in sin
Fuck, you make me feel young again
It feels like I'm enrolled in a difficult class
because I've really got to study when you shake that ass
You shake that ass
You are practically refreshing like a moist towelette
I inhale your beauty like a cigarette
In a dicey world I'm the safest bet
You just ain't got to know me yet
You must have been conceived in sin
Fuck, you make me feel young again
It feels like I'm enrolled in a difficult class
because I've really got to study when you shake that ass
You shake that ass
Track Name: Empty Vagina
I thought about you so much. I drove home in a rush
Never expecting the hush all the way from North Carolina
But when I got home I still felt all alone
sitting' next to the echo from your empty vagina
I never found nothin'
I won't never find nothin in your empty vagina
I tried to understand death, tried to transcend through our sex
but once the money was spent I could not look anywhere to find ya
The way us lovin us went you never heard what I meant
The words I sang would fall deaf
against the echoes of your empty vagina
I never found nothin...
I thought that I could see you. I thought I knew that look
I thought at the very least that you would be playin by the book
But you found me to be useful. You had my number not my back
And now I'm sitting cold and lonely with the other tools upon the rack
I can say I haven't cheated but I ain't always played fair
Maybe I deserve to be defeated by a girl who does not care
I never found nothin...
I drove by, saw your place - from the front it looked great
All it took was some paint to make the old place look much finer
The cat I used to feed, he was crossing the street on his little cat feet
He was the color of the upstairs primer
I never found nothin...
Track Name: The Laws of Physics
You want to push but you don't want pushed back
Well that's not how the universe acts
The laws of physics
You go around acting like there won't be an end
but entropy won't be your friend
The laws of physics
Believe what you want. Feel free to pretend
But try as you might, you can not transcend
The laws of physics
I tried to tell you once when you was young
but you was into alchemy - You said I was dumb
The laws of physics
The engineer has had all he can take
The captain screams for more speed but he cannot break
The laws of physics
Track Name: (My Soul Has Been Replaced By An Invincible) Radiator
They thought it ought to hide what makes you human
They put it on so tight that the pressure ruined it
A little forethought might help you to loosen it
Well fuck I sold mine. I had no use for it
They said to keep it white and not to lose it
It's like a holy shrine and don't you screw with it
They polish theirs so bright to show how smooth they is
Well I think that they lost sight of what you do with it

I got a new soul
It is invincible
I got a radiator
It is invincible

They said "believe it's right" so you should do it
If you have doubts at night well there ain't nothin to it
You better hope he likes the one you grew with
or on the day you die you will not get through with it
Track Name: Refugee of Love
You got that hip sway
Your legs are renegade
Lips like a hurricane
Oh my head needs renovated

Your love is makin me a refugee

You taste like cocaine
So hot I feel no pain
Will like a freight train
Oh, you ruin everything

Your love is makin me a refugee
Track Name: Your Time Is Never Gonna Come
You're always on but you never go out
No one ever knows what you're talkin' about
glued in place to the boob tube baby
You would change the world if you weren't so lazy
Your time is never gonna come
Years ago you were on the verge
Once upon the time when the companies merged
Lost at sea and you've got no lifeboat
I would have come to your aid but they didn't give me a vote
Your time is never gonna come
Time rolls on while you hold the dice
Throw 'em now or never is my only advice
One shot left so you might as well take it
Doomed if you don't cuz you know you can't fake it
Your time is never gonna come
Track Name: Needed You
My love it feels as deep as an ocean
but I know it's just some tiny neurons making a commotion
I've got a reservoir of emotion
You may fill out an application if you get that notion
I try to move like I'm an object in motion
but you stop me. I need some lotion

This is how I run away
This is how I do it every day
You thought that I should stay
But there was just no way

You're preaching to a different congregation
Your words affect me like a type of sedation
You feel like a foreign nation
I cannot solve your equation

This is how you got replace
This is how we drove you from the place
You will never learn. You're a disgrace
And I hate your face

(I never knew that I needed you)
Sometimes I say something and no sooner than I said it I wish I could take it back. I mean, I meant it at the time and it was only in saying such things that I came to realize that I wish I was not the type of person who would say such a thing. Yet, despite the regret, it was the path that I took to become who I am

I don't know what you want me to do
I tried to but when we were through
You had some issues

(I never knew that I needed you)
I do not believe in the consistency of the human personality. I disbelieve the self, as it were. It is not as we perceive it. It is just some atoms and some phenomenae. And we make sense of it after the fact by telling ourselves a story
Track Name: Rock & Roll
You slide your tall boots on and in your righteous way
you are looking pretty
We are going out tonight
We're gonna turn this backwards town into a proper city
through sheer force of personality
You and I are soldiers in a war against futility

and when you strolled into the promenade
Nobody knew you but everyone was afraid

First they came they tried to eat your porridge
but it was too warm so you put it in storage
with the dreams you used to have
and the meaninglessness of life
cuz you've got shit to do and a limited amount of time

And when they come to terms
with what we've done
they will realize that they have lived their whole lives wrong
We stepped upon your neck
but we were just trying to reach something on the top shelf - sorry

They sliced you off a piece of rutabaga
You ate some but you decided to save most of it for later
So you wrapped it up in a paper towel
and you put it on the table
If you get hungry after a while you can always microwave it

We will tear down this city
We will use rock and roll
We will burn down this city
We will use rock and roll
We will tear down this city with rock and roll
We will burn down this city with rock and roll
Track Name: Expatriate
Some people ought to be ashamed of themselves
Some people ain't got no shame
I wanna get the fuck away from them all
I wanna move to a place that ain't got no name

You make me want to expatriate

A million generations made it through hell
so you could have your brain
And now you throw the King James at the teacher
as you beat your chest saying "I'm not an ape"

You make me want to expatriate

America America your failure's quite obscene
Your populace has been lobotomized from sea to rising sea

Some people never want to know the real news
The facts are so hard to take
They wanna hear what they already knew
and yet they still show up on election day

You make me want to expatriate
