Track Name: Sausage With Ears
You see this sausage with ears?
He's grinding my gears!
He's talking in waves and they're
Knocking him down and around,
And on and on and on and on and on.

You see this sausage with ears?
He's grinding my gears!
He's talking in waves and they're
Knocking him down and around,
And on and on and on and on and on.

Keep it movin'!

I'm gonna buy a big car,
I'm gonna drive it real far!
I'm gonna spend my money
On gas 'n' weed.
On and on and on and on.

When I get back home
I'm gonna plant me some daisies.
Gonna get real lazy
When I get back home.
And on and on and on and on...

All right, yeah!
Ooohoohoohoohoo
Ahh-ee-ahh-ee
Ahh-ee-ahh-ee
Track Name: March The Equinox
We are so alone
In the fires down below.
Dead-end friends and trends they
Keep on rolling along.
Give the kids to the TV
So they can learn it all wrong.
Take a chance you gotta run with it!
Every drop until you're done with it.
Track Name: Eugene Nixon
I bet you had it all in your head
That that toad in your pocket
Would keep on livin' forever!
I bet you had it all in your head
That the slaves would keep on
Doin' the work for you... (That's right!)

{p.c.}
We got led down to the nice, new, safe camp
To learn all about Eugene Nixon.
We got knocked out in the greatest time to be
Rolling around like a pig in it's pen.
{cho}
Would you live in a world
Where you don't have a say?
The mind is controlled
By the word of the day.
It's only Freedom anyway...
I've seen where it goes, oh no no.

I bet you had it all in your head
That the banks would be completely
Full of forgiveness! (I don't think so...)
I bet you had it all in your head
That the controllers would care
About your demands. (you got another thing comin')

{p.c}
{cho}

I know you think you've heard
Me say it all before.
But this time's different,
I learned to speak like Gore.
So give me what you've got left
And I'll make sure, I'll make sure
To do the right thing... (Suckah!)

{cho}
Track Name: Enough Blood To Keep 'Em Coming
There's too much goin' on in my brain
In a world that's gone insane.
Take my pills when I feel sad
In a world that's all gone mad.

{p.c.}
Wipe it clean, wipe it clean, wipe it clean.
Wipe it clean it's all a dream.
Wipe it clean, wipe it clean, wipe it clean.
Wipe it clean it's all a dream.

{cho}
Watch and wait, it's too late,
You're caught up in it.
All around are wars, I miss you Jenn Hicks.
There is enough blood to keep 'em comin'
I should be runnin' but the Rock 'n' Roll's
All I need to be free baby!

There's too many heads beneath the sand
In a world that's all been planned.
I said "can you feel my pain
When you're out at the driving range?"

{p.c}
{cho}
{cho}
Track Name: Hold On
Hold on, hold on!
I got a feeling everything's gonna be alright.
Hold on to what you got,
Hold them close and hold them in you're thoughts.
Hold on! Hold on!
Don't need a prescription to fall asleep tonight
If you hold on to me tight
'Cause there's a great big world beyond the city lights.
Track Name: Mother Nature
Mother Nature, she's so mad,
I think it's 'cause you've been such a bad man,
You've been a bad, bad man.
Mother Nature, she's a bitch,
A hundred thousand year old itch
And she's scratchin' us off.
You know I wouldn't take it either.
I bet you wouldn't take it either.

I see you standing in my lane.
Baby girl, I gotta get your name
Before you drive away.
And I hate to see you frightened
But you had to go and panic on me, child.

{cho}
I love my Mother Nature.
Mother Nature, Mother Nature,
Mother, murder, murder, mother.
I love my Mother Nature.
Mother Nature, mother, mother.

Break it down.

I tried to figure it out.
I tried to figure it out.
I tried to figure you out
But I don't have a clue.
You got me down;
Girl, you make all the rules.
The things I love in Mother Nature, baby,
Are the same old things that I like about you girl
So I wrote you this letter.
And I never found it easy.
No, you never made it easy on me!

{cho}
Track Name: Tragedy & Hope
n/a
Track Name: Another Day Of Misery
Another day of misery, brought to me
by the powers that be.
Another day of misery, just you and me.
All of my life I tried to remember
The messages in the air.
The smilers will ask you to surrender...

{p.c.}
But did you read the whole story
Before you made up your mind?
Did you buy the blind glory
Or did you read between lies?

{cho}
My hands are tingling;
The room is spinning.
I'm angry when I'm fainting sometimes.
I'm focused on standing,
A task so demanding,
As the color melts away.
Whoahoh I'll think of you
From a time before I knew.
When it's all said and done tomorrow,
You'll love your servitude.
Track Name: Grinder
Seems like I caught you
Hand in the jar.
You got away
Fakin' it so far.

You got so lucky in the
Game we played.
I have to wonder
Whether you're playing fair...
It's not fair.

{p.c.}
Hold on to me
The torture is for free.

Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh,
You're walking into it.
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh,
The writing's on the wall.

Oh little dreamer
D-d-did you see the light?
So hard to miss it when
It's shining in your eyes,
So bright.

{p.c.}

Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh,
The writing's on the wall.
Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh, uh oh,
They're stealing from us all.

You made your choices,
I got mine.
I'm here to tell you:
Now I'm feeling fine,
So fine, whoo!
Track Name: Big Baby
Oh my new lord,
You got me on my knees.
I give it all to you lord
And you give me back disease.
Ow! The preachers took the money.
Ow! The media (ha) too.
All the devil's secret meetings
To make a bigger fool of you.
So you're gonna have to pay up,
Masked men are knockin' at the door.

Big baby, the big, big baby,
The big baby is learning how to crawl.
Big baby, the big, big baby,
He's gonna sleep through it all.

You better wake up baby!

Well you talk a lot of trash man,
With your 'dog and donkey' show.
Bait and switch the children
And watch your savings grow (yes we can!)
Ow, I think I got a fever.
Ow, I'm reaching out to you
And if they come and try and clone me:
You better make sure it's a two for one sale.

Big baby, the big, big baby,
The big baby is going to the mall.
Big baby, the big, big baby,
He's gonna sleep through it ahh-ooh-ahh-oo-all!

I feel it in my feet!

Have you seen the brand new guns dear?
They'll cook you up alive!
"We're amping up the tazers
To make sure you get fried!"
Ow, the frog is in the water,
Ow, and it's just about to boil.
Turn the heat a little higher...
And that sucker's gonna float belly up.


Big baby, the big, big baby,
The big baby is learning how to crawl.
Big baby, the big, big baby,
The big baby is going to the mall.
Big baby, the big, big baby,
The big baby is up against the wall.
Big baby, the big, big baby,
He's gonna sleep through it ahh-ooh-ahh-oo-all!
Track Name: I Got To Get Your Name
I got to get your name little girl.
You keep on playing these games little girl.
You know you drive me wild child
And I don't know my up from down.
No, no I don't know my up from down
When you're around.

You say I'm moving to fast, little mama.
You know it ain't gonna last, little mama
But when I'm standing oh so close to you,
Well I don't know from down.
No, no I don't know my up from down
When you're around.

It's a matter of fact little darlin'
That I think you're fine!
Whooh! I wanna take you home tonight!
The way you shake that thing
Little mama, little mama, little mama
I don't know if I'm coming or going! Whoo!

I got to get your name little girl.
You keep on playing these games little mama.
You know you drive me wild child
And I don't know my up from down.
No, no I don't know my up from down
When you're around.
No, no I don't know my up from down
When you're around.
No, no don't know my...

It's a matter of fact little darling, little darling:
I want to take you home to my kitchen,
Get you all cleaned up,
Prim and proper,
Ready to go all night long.
Track Name: So Much More
I see you standing over my shoulder
But I can't turn back,
There's a sneak attack that's coming
I'm running away.
Don't you know we're so much more than you can see?
That's what they taught us way back when
But we forgot through our history.

You know-oo-oh-oo-oh-oo-oh
We're so much more than this.
You know-oo-oh-oo-oh-oo-oh
The future's in the mix.
You know-oo-oh-oo-oh
It's raining down on me now,
Raining down on me now.

They say it's time for Revelation
But our nations don't wanna fall down,
No, no, no, no NO!
Don't you know we're so much more than you can see?
So close your eyes, reach out and just feel the deal.

You know-oo-oh-oo-oh-oo-oh
We're so much more than this.
You know-oo-oh-oo-oh-oo-oh
The future's in the mix
You know-oo-oh-oo-oh
It's raining down on me now,
Raining down on me now.
Track Name: Guitar Faye Reese
Guitar Faye Reese puttin' strings under my pillow, yeah.
Guitar Faye Reese puttin' strings under my pillow, yeah.
Did you ever wonder while making up time on life's big highway:
What's the point of it all?
'Cause if you want to be a part of this with me,
You've got to bring a little fantasy.
Bring a little fantasy--oohh

Tides will rise and tides will fall,
Felt by one and felt by all.

Guitar Faye Reese puttin' strings under my pillow, yeah.
Guitar Faye Reese puttin' strings under my pillow, yeah.

Sunny days, I feel the waves and they're
Coming through you and those eyes of blue
I lost myself as I stared into.

Tides will rise and tides will fall,
Felt by one and felt by all.

I can see it in your eyes girl.
I can see it in your eyes girl.
Track Name: Better Than We Used To
Time keeps on dancing around me,
She steps backwards and forwards.
Sometimes I'm left out in the rain.

And you've got to make up your mind,
We are running n time but it's getting late.

If I were to tell you that "it was all a scam and
You won't get your money back Jack"
Would you stick around town and
Move all-in on the next gold rainbow?

'Cause I want to know how it all turns out in the end,
Don't you, my friend?
Who are we gonna share this world with?

You know it could blow up
In our faces here.
You know we can grow:
We can be better than we used to be.

Throw down your guns one time and
Raise a glass to the better half!
We don't always need a "winner"...

Who are we gonna share this world with?!

You know it could blow up
In our faces here.
You know we can grow:
We can be better than we used to be.

She will cut you like a knife
In the side of the rib.
The most beautiful face in the whole damn place
And I can't get away from it.

I did it all for you.
I did it all for you.
I did it all for you.

And the world keeps spinning around and around
But we're stuck in the same old place,
Running in circles, only labels change.

I did it all for you.
I did it all for you.
I did it all for you.

When there's nowhere left to run,
When the bank owns everyone:
When there's nowhere left to run away.
