Pinole 02:17
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

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

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

Exponent I 01:06
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

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

Neverland 01:35
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?

Muff Diver 02:17
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

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

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
