Track Name: Pinole
Pinole
There’s a place in Northern California where nobody likes to go
Where the hills are dry and yellow and nothing seems to grow

I’m talking about Pinole Pinole, yeah Pinole

Where real estate depreciates, so if you buy you’re stuck here for life
But we go alcohol so stop by one of our bars
It’s a great place to end your life

I’m talking about Pinole Pinole, yeah Pinole

Pinole Vista Shopping Center was poorly planned
So traffic’s a mess
There’s not much to do there
But back home there’s even less

I’m talking about Pinole Pinole, yeah Pinole

When I was alive I sold my soul
I died then I woke up in Pinole
No tax base to keep us fed
No parks for the poor to use as beds

I’m talking about Pinole Pinole, Pinole Pinole
Track Name: The End is Near
There’s something out there I don’t understand
I think it could be something grand
Eternal youth
Eternal pain
I’ve got to know what lies beyond the End

The End is Near
The End is Near
Nothing to Fear
Nothing you can do
But wait for it to come to you

I’ve given gifts and been a fool
I tried to trust
I’m given to lust
I guess I’ll stick to being cruel

Cruel Ends are near
Nothing to Fear
Nothing you can do
But wait for it to come to you
Track Name: Big Brother is Watching
I saw a funny thing today upon the telescreen
I must be careful not to laugh because I know he’s watching
It’s always been this way, I can’t remember ever being free
I cannot hear what you are saying
Are you using Newspeak?

Thoughtcrime is what I’m guilty of
Cause 2 and 2 to Minitrue
Makes 5

Sometimes we dream about a place where I can go and not be heard
I’ll take her with me when I go and I don’t care who follows
For now I’ll break no laws and travel where the elders drink & die
Someone has changed the story; once again they are the heroes.

Thoughtcrime is what I’m guilty of
Cause 2 and 2 to Minitrue
Makes 5

Freedom or lack thereof
We are not free
Thoughts receding to happier times
We are not free
It is time to question our very existence when our very existence is questioned
We are not free

Thoughtcrime is what I’m guilty of
Cause 2 and 2 to Minitrue
Makes 5
Track Name: Exponent I
Exponent I, No others to die
A fracture in time
Some strange chariot in which we ride
Fingers of wisdom
& madness forgiven
A laugh into the darkness
And we’ll scream at the things that you’ve never tried
Damned to Heaven
Eternal peace
A cumulus paradise so bright
Track Name: Wednesday Green
I sit up here all night
In my Wednesday green
Watch me burn my eyelids
Let’s find out who I’ve been

I’m alone, kill yourself
Got a home, kill your friends
No one loves me, get some help
I’m alone, kill yourself

I sit among the frozen
Slamming my head
I love my friends
I wish they were dead

I’m alone, kill yourself
Got a home, kill your friends
No one loves me, get some help
I’m alone, kill yourself

I’m not lonely I’m alone
I’ve never had friends
Everything is stoned
When you’re the sun

I’m alone, kill yourself
Got a home, kill your friends
No one loves me, get some help
I’m alone, kill yourself

Got a tumor, grab a gun
The teachers cause your pain
We could have so much fun
We have a world to gain

I’m alone, kill yourself
Got a home, kill your friends
No one loves me, get some help
I’m alone, I’m alone I’m alone
Kill yourself
Track Name: Neverland
You’re not one of me my friend
You never were in Neverland
You don’t like me I understand
I’m gonna be a god

But what I don’t understand
Is how you can make demands
When you’re no better than me

We can conquer the world
We can make the darkness beautiful
Death is in our world and it’s great
Just close your eyes and concentrate

But what I don’t understand
Is how you can make demands
When you’re no better than me

Yeah you love him and you seem to like his style
But before you blow it let me ask, did he ever make you smile
When you don’t want to?
Track Name: Muff Diver
Scruffy, scruffy muff
She dared but she was bluffing
Now I’m going in there all alone
It’s my job I thought I told you
I found it dark & moldy
When will I learn to leave that scruffy muff alone?

When I began this I would never hesitate
But when I stabbed her she would sometimes bleed
Now I think I’m a little wiser
Last time I almost died
Now I think and sniff around before I try to breed

Scruffy, scruffy muff
That mound was kind of rough
A crash helmet helps when you are thrown
Our lips are green and I’m quiet
I don’t much enjoy this diet
Next time I’ll sniff and work my fingers to the bone

When I began this I would never hesitate
But when I stabbed her she would sometimes bleed
Now I think I’m a little wiser
Last time I almost died
Now I think and sniff around before I try to breed
Track Name: Joints of Time
C’mon people and cut with me
The old throats of authority
Maybe you don’t see how they’ve made you crawl
I’m gonna kill you all

Life would be complete
And we’d be puzzled and discreet
If we had a place to be deranged
We’d be so strange

We’d be dancing in the moon
Surrounded by the ruins
Then we’d try and die and kill the pain
We’d be so strange

Licking trees and eating days
Sick melons of time
Running guns within subway beige
Happiness & flatulence

People drop your knives and stop a train
We can rule the world with liquid brains
Someday when we dance within the grim sunshine
I’ll watch you from the joints of time

C’mon people and cut with me
The old throats of authority
Maybe you don’t see how they’ve made you crawl
I’m gonna kill you all
Track Name: Hand
I don’t want to sleep
I don’t want to sleep
I don’t want to sleep
I just want to fuck

I don’t want to think
I don’t want to think
I don’t want to think
You made my life broken


Naked twisting anguished dreams
Think I’m crazy but no one believes me
Any dreams I have I’ll kill
Bedtime juices by myself
Forlorn extremity

I don’t need your help
I don’t need your help
I don’t need your help
I can make love to myself

I don’t want to fight
I don’t want to fight
I don’t want to fight
My tired fists are tight

Naked twisting anguished dreams
Think I’m crazy but no one believes me
Any dreams I have I’ll kill
Bedtime juices by myself
Forlorn extremity
