1997 - Singles 1-12
« on: August 11, 2005, 09:31:25 PM »
LEXICON DEVIL
(The Germs)

I'm a Lexicon Devil with a battered brain
Looking for the future, the world is my aim
So gimme gimme your hands, gimme gimme your minds
Gimme gimme this, gimme gimme that

I want toy tin soldiers that can push and shove
I want gunboy rovers that'll wreck this club
I'll build you up and level your heads
We'll run it my way cold men and politics dead

I'll get silver guns to drip old blood
Let's give this established joke a shove
We're gonna wreak havoc on this rancid mill
I'm searchin' for something even if I'm killed

Empty out your pockets, you don't need their change
I'm giving you the power to rearrange
Together we'll run to the highest prop
Tear it down and let it drop...away



IN THE RAIN

I don't like you
Not a little thing about you
There's a flower all around you
In the rain
Images of peace
And now your pretty face
Things that give me grins
In the rain
Tropical decision
It was a mystical incision
Thought you were in prison
In the rain
As you wander with the kid
With a presage and a snip
All the way to Memphis
In the rain



LEEECH
(Green River)

Firmly attached, always at my side
I'll let you go while I can still walk alright
I'd rip you out but you'd tear my flesh
How'd I get into such a surgical mess?
Oh, Leech

Coughing up blood, I'm coughing up love
Coughing up blood, I think I've had enough
I've had enough of you



WAY OF THE WORLD
(Flipper)

There are eyes that cannot see
And fingers that cannot touch
That's the way of the world

There are dreams left empty and blank
And legs that have ceased to walk
That's the way of the world

There are kisses undelivered
And Sighs and moans unuttered
That's the way of the world

There are hearts no longer beating
And there's entrails spilled on the floor
That's the way of the world

There are eyes that cannot see
And fingers that cannot touch
That's the way of the world

There are hearts no longer beating
And there's entrails spilled on the floor
That's the way of the world

I take my feel good lord your gonna be
You make my half done witch make chance to be
Have I a feel good lord your gonna make the past
I can't take opinion of your ways
Forget we were left my overhead
I can't make it go away

I eat fried chicken being happy dastardly
Time is every pig meat salary
Pine that car seat seemed to go with everything
As with most of my egg show it
Forget we were left my overhead
I can't make it go away



NASTY DOGS & FUNKY KINGS
(ZZ Top)

Well, I knocked down on your door, baby
To see if you were at home.
Your shade was down, there wasn't even a sound
But something told me you weren't alone.
What in the world can a nasty dog do
But try to get next to you?

Don't laugh 'cause it ain't funny.
Look how it happened to me.
It could happen to you, you could be a fool too
And it'd leave you in misery.
I guess there's nothin' more funky king can do
But to try to get next to you.



POISON
(MC5)

The partisans, not the artisans
Are doing their dirty show
But i ripped my pants
Doing some dance
That i learned in France
And they think there ain't
nothin' to know

Used, abused
Locked up, beaten and fined
But i got free
Copped a plea
And i can see
That there ain't no freedom
bell gonna chime
This time

Truth and love
are my law and worship
Form and conscience
      
my manifestation and guide
Nature and peace are
my shelter and companion
Order is my attitude
Beauty and perfection
Are my attack

False faces
Fast company
A night of thrills
With no jealousy, no poison

Nobody's tool
Will be a public fool
To manipulate the masses
Who lie and cheat
And eat their meat
And think it's sweet
While the rest all clean their glasses
In status classes

Jacksonville

You know, I don't think this is going very well. I mean,
like 10 percent of the audience wants to fight.
The other 90 percent are totally bored.
So its like, what the fuck am I doing up here, you know.
You know when I am sitting around at home in hollywood,
usually what I'm saying to myself is how much we suck
compared to all the great bands from Jacksonville.
I'm thinking how much my life sucks compared to what it
would be like if I just lived in Jacksonville.
Unfortunately, I'm exiled in California.
And you guys are in this hot bed of entertainment,
called Jacksonville. So I think without any further ado,
we will continue by being completley bored ourselves.

Ohh, I'm so damn lonely

...AND I HATE EVERYBODY!
And we hate everyone of you!
And we hate everyone of you!
And we hate everyone of you!
And we hate everyone of you!
And we hate everyone of you!
And we hate everyone of you!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
AHHH!
We Hate you all and want you to die
We Hate you all and want you to die
We Hate you all and want you to die
We Hate You all and want you to die
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
FUCK YOU!
We Hate You all and want you to die
We Hate You all and want you to die
We Hate You all and want you to die
We Hate You all and want you to die
Die!
Die!
Die!
Die!
Die!
Die!
Die!
Die!

I think In The Rain is a bit different

In The Rain
--------------------

(I don't like you!
Wicked!)

I don't like you
know a little thing about you
there's a flower all around you
in the rain

Cabbages and kings
And all your pretty things
Things that sunshine brings
In the rain

La la la la la
La la la la

Tropical decision
It was a mystical incision
Fabulous and driven
In the rain

It's a missing (potato chip?)
Greasy jerk in a slip
All the way to Memphis
In the rain

La la la la la
La la la la

(And bollocks to the Queen!
Wicked!)

For your health!
