Nuclear Gloom


how tough are you?
what will you do
if we come unplugged?
if we unscrew?
can't you see what we're going through
we're doing things we'd never do
can't you see what we're going through...
gloom.
how strong are two?
where did we come from?
sometimes i need their help
to alphabetize, deoxygenize
where did we come from?
how strong are two?
how tough are you?
look at what life's showing you
you.
public rooms
lonely afternoons
with nothing to do
lonely afternoons
fire peeling something cruel
some other genocidal crew
you introduce your idols
clone-cultures, new arrivals.
look at what life's showing you
you're doing things you'd never do
it's you...
and nuclear gloom.

Headache


you know the only things we've every really needed in life
a quiet place, a slower pace, goodbye mankind!
it's instematic, it's apathetic, really uptight
some days psychotic, some ways neurotic, do the divide
your hands are shaking, your head is saying "headache"
you take for granted, your life's slanting towards a goodbye

headache!  headache!

you know the only thing we ever really need is to unwind
we need a space, an outer space, the time will arrive
look at your face, the lines are tracing all your declines
your hands are shaking, your head is saying "headache"
you take for granted, your life's slanting towards a goodbye

headache!  headache!
headache!  headache!

Blondes On The Run


my peroxide baby left town today
with her ruby lips and her hips astray
she wants to be a star, and groove in LA
she packed her sunglasses, she's gone away

blondes on the run!
blondes on the run!
blondes on the run!
blondes on the run!

she told you she loved you, you've heard it before
she squeezed you and hugged you and locked the door
love's on rebound day and night
when you're together you love to fight

blondes on the run!
blondes on the run!
blondes on the run!
blondes on the run!

the baby's lying on the floor
screaming and crying, she don't want it no more
she's in a mess, she's in a bind
she's got her looks, but not the bite

Nothing, Nothing


lets not talk my woman, you danced all night, your dress so tight
now in the morning, you tell me nothing

nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing.

her eyes are filled with lies
they're telling the stories
lies on your face, they're making you worry
the lies in your eyes, in your mind

nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing.

her lies are for the guys
sex kitten, she's purring
lies on her face
her eyes are so blurry
she tells me nothing

nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing.

i'll tell you one thing:  you're nothing!

Too Much Soft Living


too much, too much, too much soft living
too much soft living
(too much soft living)
it's such token company
the new lingo language
yeah, that new lingo managed
to screw up your insides

(too much soft living)
murderous loving
restricting the hungry
pink hollywood bed
and a hole in the head

hollywood bed, and a hole in the head

scene painting it all away
ends that happened on purpose
scene painting it all away
when there's cracks in the surface
something is wrong

too much soft living.

What Next


transitions bloom
uncoming acts
you stay in your room
you sit, stare and laugh
your body is bruised
you can't relax
somebody like you
hurts in their hands

which way will you move
when you can't stand
bodies get used
then burned in the sand

what next, i ask
what did you expect?
his moves, they change him so fast
so fast... what next?
what did you expect?

Clean Cut


clean cut, he's so clean cut
he's not like his snapshots
CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN CUT.
he hits the gas to change the lane
the speed flows fast through a lazy brain
viewed in the crash, you'd view the pain
his body is through, down the main
CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN CUT.
clean cut, he's so clean cut
clean cut, so young, so hung
when tragic death is a way to gain
so everyone will say your name
to anyone who'll feel the same
he's high-strung, too tough to tame
he's the one, he takes his blame
CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN CUT.  CLEAN... CUT!

Bruiser Boy


oh bruiser boy, there's a snake in your heart
no loser boy, you're making something smart
a choosy toy, a dot to mark the spot
oh bruiser boy, you think you're so hot
confused, annoyed, they bruise you
blue boy, they used you for their ploys
you're one of them, a real mess boy

oh bruiser boy, there's a snake in your heart
go cruising boy, chase the noise out in the dark
oh bruiser boy, they found you in the park
confused, annoyed
you're one of them... the decoys
you're one of them!  the decoys!
bruiser boy

Unbreakable


i clawed her picture in the magazines
she looks so durable for only 13
i watch her picture on my 3D tv
she looks so durable, and only 13

high-fashion queen
she's my teen
high-fashion queen
lean and mean

i tore your pictures from the magazines
all of your pictures, the ones so young, so clean
i lick your picture, on my 3D tv
i sing to your picture, my heart is jumping beats!

high-fashion queen
she's my teen
high-fashion queen
lean and mean

(i'm only 13!)

you look so durable!
(aaah!)

Killjoy Interference


killjoy interference
could someone get the phone?
hey, killboy, nothing's easy; tell her i'm not home
well baby, i'm irrational.  i won't disagree
you and all those promises, you've taken too many chances
now you're stuck in stagnation, you're life's getting dull.
you keep too many secrets, the last romance

the telephone is ringing, it's ringing in your ear
tell me something personal, calling you a zero
you'll never be my hero!  you're just a zero!

(killjoy interference)
tears fill up your ears
conditions get impossible
you have to take more evidence
everyday you should say:
i'm not a case!  and i'm not off my rocker!
i'm not off my rocker!

(killjoy interference)
please, please, leave me alone!
stay off your phone!

Let Go


nice glaring window
evenings of glass
nightmares are enclosed
you'll make a splash

you had to get so...
you have to let go
let go!

man's landing missiles
he's seeking revenge
don't hand him the pistol
he won't mind the pain
he's lost in mirrors
his ears fear the blast
the logic, the terror
no witness, no evidence

you had to get so...
you had to let go
let go!

I Know A Girl


I know a girl who's out of this world
I know a girl who's out of this world
I know a girl who doesn't have curls
I know a girl whose teeth are pearl

she makes me go crazy
ties me up in another world
she makes me so crazy
ties me up in another world...

ties me up in another world
     me up in another world
        up in another world
           in another world
              another world
                      world

i looked at you, i looked at you then
and then i said remember when
oh everything except being ten
nothing was right, wrong again!

too light, too dark, too fast to go in
where do i start, where do i begin?
i'm playing parts that gender-bend
i am the shark without his skin

this pretty girl, and me the cool jerk
with our brains doing coffee pot perks
we filled the bed to the edge with dirt
the pain was reflected in her...

Vertigo Feeling


movements in motion
spontaneous portions
ambiguous notions
compelling explosions
they're causing emotion
chaotic emotion

it laughs when it cries
it lives then it dies
it's sci-fi, it's hi-fi
it's right in the eye, eye, eye

concealing the dealings
for kicks, it's appealing
perpetual meanings
depend on decieving

vertigo feeling, my head hits the ceiling
vertigo feeling, your head hits the ceiling

suspicious commotion
a nervous distortion
erase the devotion
to track the emotion

Innocense


i never wanted to be just like anybody
running into the night, i'm amused by the fright
my illusions defense, i've run out of innocence
and it's regardless to me, this is your reality

so now you're misplaced
or dying with the ancient race
you had an innocent face
yes an innocent face

doing all those things i've never done
committing suicide with an empty gun
yes this innocent face, for you to disgrace
living life's such a bore, don't want it no more

now you've got to be just like everybody
running into the night, hiding out cheap delights
they're so intense, in and out of innocence
and it seems like to me, overdosed anxiety

feeling all those things, you're number 1
cross and cool man, you'll never run
and that innocent face will be replaced
line up at the door, theres always one more...
