Church 02:15
You’ve been partying Saturday night Your hangover hurts But you’ll be absolved from sins Once you go to church See that bum out on the street Leave him in the lurch You put a buck in the collection plate When you go to church When you show up at the polls No need to do research Just vote the way that you are told When you go to church That preacher’s a pervert A dirty son of a bitch But he just had to cry like a baby He’s back in charge of the church Now today is Pastor’s Day Give until it hurts Pay out the ass for that nice new car Your pastor drives to church Satan doesn’t need to try Very hard to search There are lots of gullible suckers In the pews at church Your God is your ego What you really worship first You know you’re better than everyone else Because you go to church Go to church, go to church It’s time to go to church Get your fat ass out of bed It’s time to go to church

Pig's Ass 02:39
You act like there is nothing wrong with your life And always pretend to be happy But on the real, you are not satisfied Deep down inside Well, let me tell you, friend, you aren’t doing anything You’re trapped in some dumb bullshit You’re not moving forward You’re just hanging from a goddamned cliff Your fingers are getting numb Hanging on that cliff You’re in denial that you’re just Another working stiff You don’t see life as a gift You moved into this here town to pillage and to rape Your fictitious moral posture is just sour grapes How do you live with yourself? This narcissistic tendency That runs your mental health Pig’s ass, you got it made Pig’s ass, you made the grade Pig’s ass, you’re happy now Who would care less anyhow The phony cheap veneer That you cover yourself with Is just a lame ass novelty A fairy tale, a myth You look weak from where I sit Thinking you have a gift of wisdom for the world Rolling balls of mucus up and selling them as pearls You think you were born to lead You just push this junk for cash That no one really needs Pig’s ass, you got it made Pig’s ass, you made the grade Pig’s ass, you’re happy now Who would care less anyhow

I’ve lost my faith I’ve lost my mind I’ve gotten them both back in time But I’ve not afraid of the rain I can be rough I can be mean Sometimes I have to make a scene But I’m not afraid of the rain I know the work I have to do I know that I will make it through I’m not a perfect man, you see And I’m not trial and error free But I’m not afraid of the rain I’ve lost some family and friends I’ll never speak to them again But I’m not afraid of the rain It’s sad to see That actually Some people must look down on me But I’m not afraid of the rain I know the work I have to do I know that I will make it through I get results and make them last I take the names and kick the ass And I’m not afraid of the rain I will resist While I exist I’ll crush and melt all iron fists And I’m not afraid of the rain I’ve spoken up For many years Not cowering In silent fear And I’m not afraid of the rain I know the work I have to do I know that I will make it through I’ll never rest without a doubt Until the trash is taken out And I’m not afraid of the rain

Keys 03:16
Some people plant flowers in their back yard I plant keys You won’t get in If you don’t have the key I’ll get in there Because I have the key You won’t get through the door Without the keys You can’t start up and ride Without the keys You can’t get off the grid Without your keys You’re stuck in downward skid Without the keys I can’t stand life here anymore Too dumb for me I can’t go out in the backyard It’s 110 degrees It’s not the city I used to know It’s turning twee I must escape this public hell Thank God for keys

Shorts 02:20
Woke me up for days in a row Sent me places I don’t want to go Made me see and hear things I didn’t want to know You’re getting no shorts from me Stare in a man’s eyes lead him along Try to sing a ballad how you’ve been wronged Too many times have I heard that song You’re getting no shorts from me Don’t waste your breath trying to explain Your testimony was just in vain Quit with the act I’ll just make it plain You’re getting no shorts from me Telling a tale of exotic lies You mustn’t think I’m very wise I see right through your disguise You’re getting no shorts from me

Unsavory 03:22
Winnie really wanted to try a train Why she was so scared she could not explain She was feeling high anxiety So for advice she called mommy Winnie does not like unsavory smells Winnie worries about unsavory smells Winnie really wanted to do that train She called her mom hoping she was not insane What if she started having high anxiety? Mom told her just think about Paul McCartney Winnie does not like unsavory smells Winnie worries about unsavory smells Winnie got right on and didn’t fool around She met some real nice guys and went right to town She’s really glad she went and did that train Downtown will never look or smell the same again Winnie does not like unsavory smells Winnie worries about unsavory smells

My neighbor’s beating off in the outdoors He must be bored He’s out there for all the neighbors to see He mustn’t have much opportunity To amuse himself so he beats off outdoors He must be really struggling through life Where is his wife? My neighbor’s beating off in the outdoors He must be bored I won’t call the cops I’m not an ass Maybe he’ll stop if someone asks He’s in his own yard probably has a right We try to mind our business But yet we’re forced to witness Because the fact is We still hear him beating off in the outdoors My neighbor’s beating off in the outdoors He must be bored Guess he needs some sort of release But into the night he just won’t cease My neighbor’s beating off in the outdoors We try ignoring him and go about our affairs He just lights a tiki torch and doesn’t care He seems to like playing with adult toys It might not disturb the neighborhood If he didn’t make so much noise What a weird thing to do with his life Maybe he’s egged on by his wife My neighbor’s beating off in the outdoors He must be bored

I’m not the creep, you’re the creep Flying off the ground So you can look around Because you want to see Why your mind is making sounds Send the dogs around Out sniffing on the ground Because you fear what you don’t know Is going to get you down Hearing all the voices And assuming they are one I think that your mom and dad Should worry about you son Called you on your shady wage Read my words from off the page You tried to strike with rage Now my spotlight’s on your stage 911 on the phone You’re outside your happy home And you are scared and all alone Because you have to self-deflect The creep you really are You are afraid you will project The creep you really are The creep you really are The creep you really are 5150 the police have been notified

Anger consumed me Could barely breathe I went and wandered Knife out of sheath I lived a bad dream My wounded head Walked with the demons Bathing in dread Blind to a future Mourning the past I was so certain Life shouldn’t last Earth was my homestead Slept on the ground Like that old song says Lost now I’m found I am surviving You will as well Please don’t contribute To harming yourself Live for the sunrise See what it brings Time is a healer Takes care of things When the well runs dry You’ll want to run As the walls are falling And the fire comes Don’t hurry out yet Wait for a while Be still and patient Then walk that mile Then fly Far away Fly Far away
10.
Please don’t ask for my help You’ve been far too long astray If you walk that beaten path I won’t get in your way I’ve been shunned for many years No pleasure you could gain You made me love my solitude Now kindly stay away Don’t pretend to understand about me You don’t know my name This planet was once paradise It looked just fine to me But for some reason people came And couldn’t let it be You did just what you wanted Disregarded right or wrong The fallen angel’s “might is right” Done dragged you right along You’d think I’d feel resentment But that’s simply not the case I’ve seen way too much bad behavior By the human race I won’t protect your interests And I won’t defend your crimes I won’t try to engage with you It’s just a waste of time I’ll never try to tempt you That’s for someone else to do You’re probably under that control Perhaps without a clue You’ll see me at your deathbed Psychopomp that is my job With your last breath, you’ll feel regret Might feel like you’ve been robbed

You walked up and said “How do you do”? I wasn’t interested, as you already knew. No attraction; just intrigued at the most. So you packed your car, and headed to the coast. Now All you want to do is sing for your dinner By singing to people who are eating their dinner Because a girl’s somehow got to make a living And your gogo dance body is now unforgiving So All you want to do is sing for your dinner By singing to people who are eating their dinner As you slow on down from the life of a sinner And plus, if only you had kept yourself thinner But All you want to do is sing for your dinner By singing to people who are eating their dinner You hoped that you could be an academic winner But you’ve always gotten paid with the outer not the inner So All you want to do is sing for your dinner By singing to people who are eating their dinner You finally gave up on chasing the glimmer So you moved to an island now you’re someone’s ring rimmer But All you want to do is sing for your dinner By singing to people who are eating their dinner Yep All you want to do is sing for your dinner By singing to people who are eating their dinner

From the top of the mountain We can see the ocean We are climbing Keep on trying Why stop moving Life is motion Onward climbing Can’t stop trying Keep on moving Life in motion
