MECHANIC/MECHANICAL There's no need to hesitate fearing what you say will sound off key. Far too often you're concentrating so hard you cannot think You won't be around tomorrow so take off while you can. And if you like manipulation it's there inside, inside your hand. Forget all the other ones. They're the reason that you're here. You'll get what you want in time but The quick way is not clear. And it just might take you half your life... But then eventually you'll get to be Mechanic mechanical. Is it smart to be so smart or is smartness really dull? I don't want to know so much because it's not exceptional. I.Q. is an overrated indicated of wits. I prefer to think of intelligence as a bulletin board, Board of clips. Forget all the other ones. They're the reason that you're here. You'll get what you want in time but The quick way is not clear. And it just might take you half your life... But then eventually you'll get to be Mechanic mechanical. You wish you could be just like all the actors that you see. Well, they would like to trade places with you Cuz their lives aren't what they seem. If you feel that your own scenario doesn't suit you well You'd better stop looking for answers Cuz there are none there. There are none there. Forget all the other ones. They're the reason that you're here. You'll get what you want in time but The quick way is not clear. And it just might take you half your life... But then eventually you'll get to be Mechanic mechanical.

THIS IS LOGICAL THINKING No I won't feel all right When all the things that you're saying Are things you heard on the TV. It surprises me When a transmitter creates all the things that you hear and sea In a sea of your very own philosophy. It's too bad but I'm glad And there's no reason to lie... I won't lie anymore. There are too many brands Of products to choose from. We never can use them all. You're too sensitive And you should be more inventive Unless you can think of how to excel In this ocean full of homo males... Anyway I must say Psychology gave me a reason to give up hope. I was young. I was old. I was an English mathematician long ago. But I've changed. And it's strange to envision the cycles we live are a joke. Can't you see? It's a logic full of anarchy. And we kill to excite All the people so bored that They never could notice This.

WORKING FOR HER KIND Ms. DeSalle comes into the store Wondering how she can be sure. I can tell her what to say and what has now gone underway but Ms. DeSalle just cannot afford to see Mr. Ford. Can you see the lightning striking you As you leave the store? Would she go to see the officer? Once again I'm bored. But I see us buy each other's time. Would you be afraid that you might end up Working for her kind? I won't do that. Strangely how breezes make the wind. Blowing just now and making sure. There are things to give and take But somehow they just always break and Strangely how breezes make the wind. You rise and descend. Can you see the lightning striking you As you leave the store? Would she go to see the officer? Once again I'm bored. But I see us buy each other's time. Would you be afraid that you might end up Working for her kind? Would you be afraid that I might see us Buying people's time? Would you be afraid that you might end up Working for her kind?

THEY'LL SHOW YOU WHO'S WON NOW Where have the molden children gone? Where have they gone to now? Lead them away and tell not to turn o'er your lives. It's very hard. And don't be surprised when they come While you're thinking of taking them off. You've got a distorted view of humanity. It is and it was. But it never was. And if you think they've leaving They have not gone away. You may wake up to find them here With your head in their hands... They'll show you who's won now. What do you think you're doing now, now? What are you doing now? Lead me away and tell me not to turn o'er your lives. It's very hard. And I thought you'd be something more Than I ever thought you could be. You're just a mutated being that I wanted once. It is and it was. But it never was. And if you think they've leaving They have not gone away. You may wake up to find them here With your head in their hands... They'll show you who's won. And if you think they've leaving They have not gone away. You may wake up to find them here With your head in their hands... They'll show you who's won now. They'll show you who's won now. They'll show you who's won now.

NOT A PRETTY PICTURE I can't see the sky. I only open my eyes wide. Selective perception is a useful device to screen everything. I used to think about life in a funny way. "A pedestal will make you fall if you stand on it too long." I used to ponder all the time over things I felt were wrong. It's not a pretty picture for anyone I see these days. A frame leads your eyes Into a previous time... You travel from moment to moment But you'll always be here in familiar past tenses... If I followed you there would I ever know What year it is? I was hoping you would keep up with that for now. So back and forth we keep traveling and It's nice you're feeling well. Well it's not a pretty picture for anyone I see these days. And there is not a pretty picture On any wall I see These days. I want to seem like my ancestors seemed so many years ago. I'm stuck in time but I'm trying To find my way back home to you. You. You'll meet me at ten. I'm still remembering when We traveled (so far). But now everything has come to an end (uh) end (uh). We still have an option but it won't be so popular. Now I'm looking ahead as I look behind. I'm finding it's much easier to stay where I am this time. It wears me out to be wearing clothes Fashionable in 1993. I saw this picture exposed So many years ago And it's developing. But where were you, You in the scene? You're not in the place you were then. Where were you? Where were you?

POLITICS, POLITICS, POLITICS My government doesn't make any sense But nor does yours so you draw your conclusions. Take a picture to record the event. If it suits you I think I would like to see All of these miserable crazy people Running their own government. A president is elected by men Who've never run things and who never can. A congress never gives you what you'd expect. You're rejected and I object to you supporting All of these miserable crazy people Running their own government. I don't want to trust anyone that I don't know. The power of their minds is so terrifying. And I wonder if there's something to do when There's only you and I to obey what they say. I'm sure that we don't comprehend The laws and orders we obey. They're totally out of place. Does the system we have created bring justice for all? A circular path takes us where we had started. We're just a race that's been Lost in space. A little girl finds it hard to contain The regulations in her mother's brain. She's never certain of what she should expect. She's safe and sound in her belief that she will grow up to join All of these schizophrenic dizzy people Running their own government. I see myself as a regular man. I borrow things and I always return them. If give and take is such a positive state Don't take advantage of this or I will start ignoring All of these schizophrenic dizzy people Running their own government. I don't want to trust anyone that I don't know. The power of their minds is so terrifying. And I wonder if there's something to do when There's only you and I to obey what they say. I'm sure that we don't comprehend The laws and orders we obey. They're totally out of place. Does the system we have created bring justice for all? A circular path takes us where we had started. We're just a race that's been... Lost in space.

REMEMBER AND FORGET Remember disco? Remember glitter? Remember punk rock? Remember all of these things. Now forget all these things. Remember hairstyles? Remember movies? Remember new wave? Remember all of these things. Now forget all these things. You can like this and I can like that And we can get together Now forget about That. Do you Remember video? Remember Christmas? Remember Easter? Remember and forget. Remember and forget. Are we listening to lyrics in songs? Oh so safe to be left behind. Trying never to be undermined. Well that's as long as it took. Refer to actors for styles. You can like this and I can like that And we can get together Now forget about That. You can like this and I can like that And we can be so happy Now forget about That. You can like this and I can like that And we can be so happy Now forget about That.

Pop Idols 02:41
POP IDOLS Are the successes we're seeking Results of our reading And are the lifestyles we project our breeding? You may find that this success Depends upon your views. You pay attention to detail. Avoid paying retail. Put coins in a slot. It reminds me of trained seals. This reward is down an avenue Where you were born. And I don't want to be alone But you're not like I thought you would be When you're hearing me. Alone you'll always be. It never goes the way you suppose. We will always be alone until we learn that To be only one is a shock in itself. You need somebody so you look to me for help But we never can be what you want us to be until Pop idealism fades and Pop idols go away. I wish I were a financier, a legal aid counselor, A franchising businessman franchising millions. Forge the value of striving, the struggling syndrome. Get out of your bed and stand By the window. Do you get the point? I want to tell you but It's hard somehow. And I don't want to be alone But you're not like I thought you would be When you're hearing me. Alone you'll always be. It never goes the way you suppose. We will always be alone until we learn that To be only one is a shock in itself. You need somebody so you look to me for help But we never can be what you want us to be until Pop idealism fades and Pop idols go away. To be only one is a shock in itself. You need somebody so you look to me for help But we never can be what you want us to be until Pop idealism fades and Pop idols go away.

Puzzle 02:26
PUZZLE I must be acting purely out of frustration. A mood will come and then soon be gone. There is a weakness in me But there is no weakness in you. Time is going rather slowly now. It's time to disagree. Do you know where you'll be tomorrow? You'll have to wait... I'd like to talk with you Much more than to touch you. I don't need physical strokes From your kind. You can relax around me But I cannot relax around you. I want compassion but I can't allow My feelings to show through. Will it still be the same tomorrow? You'll have to wait... Oh I must be acting purely out of frustration. A mood will come and then soon be gone. There is a weakness in you But there is no weakness in me. Time is going rather slowly now. It's time to disagree. Do you know where you'll be tomorrow? You'll have to wait... You'll have to wait and see.

ESCAPES You're so caught up in the news That you've forgotten what you think. It is important for you To know what happens every day. But this is really something new. And the news can make you great. When you sleep you seem awake. Publications make you greater. Let's get involved in odd sports So we'll forget that we are sad. Some of us don't understand it And it slowly drives us mad. But this is something that we need. Block your mind out for a while. Try to think of this escape As a way of being occupied. So choose the best of these sources. Get devoured. Select a fitting escape and Be entertained for hours. Let me know What is what and what is why. When you have something to hide. Drugs are mainly used by young adults. Alcohol is served in restaurants. Let me know What is what and what is why. When you have something to hide. Drugs are mainly used by young adults.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO END Everybody wants something from you. I never would have thought it was true. You run the risk of being eaten bit by bit And you're never sure of who's using who. Well if you can find a reason Let me in on this unknown secret. Some acquaintances think they know me. I hardly even know them at all. I'm quite convinced That it does not make sense. It amuses me despite of it all. Well if you can find the humor Let me in on it. And if you can find the reasons Let me in on this unknown secret. Everything is going to end. If it all should stop Would it start again? I wonder if the stars in the sky Could help prevent This silly imminent event. If they could I wonder if they would try. Well if you came down from heaven Would you clue me in? Who really wins. Everything is going to end.

THE INSTRUCTOR SONG Ooo Can you see the instructor Handing out his mind For the benefit of mankind. And hey, is there something unsaid To give you a clue For the benefit of mankind. The basis of this class Is pointing to most important facts so overgrown With ideas you should have known and The basis of this class It turning to broken glass. One piece is cobalt blue. The sides are uniquely pointed. The thoughts are somewhat disjointed. The class is surprised by all you do With the broken glass. And why can't I find my position In the world so vast. Maybe I was born in the past. And hey, is there something unsaid To give you a clue For the benefit of mankind. The basis of this class Is pointing to most important facts so overgrown With ideas you should have known and The basis of this class It turning to broken glass. One piece is cobalt blue. The sides are uniquely pointed. The thoughts are somewhat disjointed. The class is surprised by all you do With the broken glass. Ooo Visuals and projects help to make you see What is in the book that you read. For you to make the connection Colleges must deal with the printed words That are real. Ooo Can you see the instructor Handing out his mind For the benefit of mankind. The basis of this class Is pointing to most important facts so overgrown With ideas you should have known and The basis of this class It turning to broken glass. One piece is cobalt blue. The sides are uniquely pointed. The thoughts are somewhat disjointed. The class is surprised by all you do With the broken glass.

SANDWICH TIME FOR THE SMALLER CHILDREN One of the lines is finally breaking And two of the lines are drawing together. Of all the lines I might say this line's mine. And two of the birds Are flying beside themselves. But one of the birds Was thinking to himself, "Would she believe this line's in a bird's eye." I know no one I see And I see no one that I want to know. So hold back your heart and think of nothing. But we'd know what's on the beat Because I know that's where I must go. I must go up to another land Where you won't hear our command. You won't believe what you won't believe Until you understand. She goes she goes she goes. We go we go we go we go we go. When there is no life inside of their headroom They seem to invent the things in their bedroom. Of all the lines I might say this line's mine. And two of the birds Are flying beside themselves. But one of the birds Was thinking to himself. Would she believe this line's in a bird's eye. I know no one I see And I see no one that I want to know. So hold back your heart and think of nothing. But we'd know what's on the beat Because I know that's where I must go. I must go up to another land Where you won't hear our command. You won't believe what you won't believe Until you understand. She goes she goes she goes. We go we go we go we go we go. But we'd know what's on the beat Because I know that's where I must go. I must go up to another land Where you won't hear our command. You won't believe what you won't believe Until you understand. She goes she goes she goes. We go we go we go we go we go.

It's A Snap! 03:39
IT'S A SNAP! Wake up, get up And snap into your morning role. You wash up and then prepare To snap into your work persona. It's a snap To zap yourself Into the person you need to be. At work at school And in the shopping malls Like a key which opens a lock We're falling into cultural shock. It's a snap To zap yourself Into the person you need to be. I know a boy With friends in every direction. He seems to be able to greet everyone. So I asked him how he achieved His mass popularity. He told me I'm a mirror Of my friends. Reflect, reflect Your personality to fit in To the place you are in time Cuz life is just a nursery rhyme. It's a snap To zap yourself Into the person you need to be.

All Grown Up 02:43
ALL GROWN UP Don't grow up. You don't need to Feel inside From in your youth. Grow up. Don't ever grow up. It's really not a thrill to pay the pills In grown up-ville. Grown ups. They're not so grown up. If they were so adult we'd get results From grown ups. If you think About your age Don't forget From what you're made. Grow up. Don't ever grow up. It's really not a thrill to pay the pills In grown up-ville. Grown ups. They're not so grown up. If they were so adult we'd get results From grown ups. Can they see the pressure building up. Is there any pressure good enough. Grow down. You need to slow down. If growing older means You lose your dreams Don't grow up. Don't give up. Don't lose sight. Don't grow up. You don't have to.

Bad and Sad 02:56
BAD AND SAD They're giving me the go ahead. So I will pull away. Dealing with the people that I meet each day Makes me want to die today. I'm dying all the time While saying hi So I must close my eyes. To keep the tears inside I have to hide. I won't live for many years. So they refuse to see the real me. They are twisting me inside. I won't cry Because nobody cares To see what I'm like inside. Some people give themselves away. Some people choose to hide. I'm finding more and more it's hard to know In which of them to confide. So I continue on the same path To find where I ought to be. Won't you try To help me understand these feelings Of suicide. And mental health begins with yourself. Will I ever find a cure? I'll get by. I guess it's just a case Of never quite knowing Why.

WORLD WITHOUT USE You escape my mind but I remember Where we used to hide when we were younger. Now I feel the bite of people seeing, Purchasing themselves But never being. But the earth it swells And keeps on growing Taking in its grasp All of our clothing. We're in a world without use. I'm in a state of unrest When you won't give me abuse. Must be a world without use. Take a metal bar and thrust it into Streets you sail upon beneath your point of... Lights above the streams will guide us into Channels of a small TV screen that you choose. But the earth it swells And keeps on growing Taking in its grasp All of our clothing. We're in a world without use. I'm in a state of unrest When you won't give me abuse. Must be a world without use. I'm really such a stupid bore. Can you tell me what I'm living for. You escape my mind but I remember Where we used to hide when we were younger.

HIDE IN FICTION'S HANDS You're not strong So you need to recharge yourself And take control of all you see. See the lights change when you're crossing the street and Notice I change When you need to recharge yourself. But now I wonder if you saw me. Your face was down. You wouldn't accept what you'd found. Hide in fiction's hands. You're not smart So you need to educate yourself And memorize all the charts and graphs. Hear the voices They are talking about you. Hear my voice as it's turning Into a laugh. But now I wonder if you saw me. Your face was down. You wouldn't accept what you'd found. Hide in fiction's hands. We don't want anything that will make us whole. We don't want anything that lasts. You can write down all the ideas that make you. You can write down As you're starting to write it up. But now I wonder if you saw me. Your face was down. You wouldn't accept what you'd found. Hide in fiction's hands.
19.
WALKING THROUGH DOORS I wandered through a door I'd never seen before. What was waiting inside? You've got nothing to hide. The locks on the doors Are all different I'm sure. You've got so many types That I almost stop trying to Walk through your door. Very different from before. I know it's hard to open. There is something new and The light is shining over your head. If time is only running Find the time to find it And when you find it Nothing is there. Is there no believing? Is there nothing to confess at all? They're saying, "Life is a ball." Is there value knowing of the problems growing? In reality life should be. I choose to place you first. The bubble never bursts. Do the waltz with your ears. Is that someone I hear. The path is so plain That I'm seeing your brain. You've got so many thoughts That I almost stop trying to Walk through your door. Very different from before. I know it's hard to open. There is something new and The light is shining over your head. If time is only running Find the time to find it And when you find it Nothing is there. Is there no believing? Is there nothing to confess at all? They're saying, "Life is a ball." Is there value knowing of the problems growing? In reality life should be. While we deal with stress We all shall rest Above the sky For how it seems There's one extreme. A spoken dream. A spoken dream. A spoken dream. A spoken dream. A spoken dream. A spoken dream. A spoken dream.

I WANT TO LIVE WITH A DICTIONARY Far beyond all the tress and land Or beyond all the grains of Sand. At a dictionary he was seated Oddly searching for words Unknown. Pages of dictionaries Alphabetically blinding us are a wall. There is a spot on the wall Which can be penetrated by some, Not by all. By defining all the words he conquered All the tasks that were assigned to Him. When he came to know the dictionary He believe it was his only Friend. Pages of dictionaries Alphabetically blinding us are a wall. There is a spot on the wall Which can be penetrated by some, Not by all. Now the man is in seclusion reaching For his dictionary with both Hands. By removing both his phone and mailbox He cut ties with everyone Around. Pages of dictionaries Alphabetically blinding us are a wall. There is a spot on the wall Which can be penetrated by some, Not by all. I turn the pages Indefinitely. I find bliss in what I read to myself. One book is balanced On the top of my forehead. One is beneath all my toes. I made a coffee table by rearranging All of the books in a row. These books are good to me. They're all I'll ever need. I want to live with a dictionary.

BREAKFAST CEREAL Oh well I don't seem to care What you say or you wear. People act viciously. But what I want is the thought That you already know. People act viciously. And I, I admit I am malicious at times. We all have a tolerance that's well defined. You may seem to think that you don't care. But that won't get you anywhere. It's great to live in a world Full of terror and hate. People act viciously. It's sad to see all the news On the six o'clock news. People act viciously. But we, we escape the world in many odd ways. I know there's a reason for these lonely faces. You may seem to think There's no one there. But there are people everywhere. And everybody cares about you If you only want them to. There's good in three percent of all So think of them when you choose. Life is just a breakfast cereal. Life is just a breakfast cereal. Life is just a breakfast cereal. There's a prize in each and every box. What prize did you get? It's a zebra. If we could all buy a gun And then shoot only one. People act viciously. We would have peace on the earth But is that really worth it? People act viciously. But we, we escape the world in many odd ways. I know there's a reason for these lonely faces. You may seem to think there's no one there But there are people everywhere. And everybody cares about you If you only want them to. There's good in six percent of all So think of them when you choose. Life is just a breakfast cereal. Life is just a breakfast cereal. Life is just a breakfast cereal. There's a prize in each and every box. What prize did you get? It's a happy couple. You do know. Do you know. Don't you know. You do know. Do you know. Don't you know. You do know. Do you know. Don't you know. You do know. Do you know. Don't you know. Oh well I don't seem to care What you say or you wear. People act viciously. But what I want is the thought That you already know People act viciously. And everybody cares about you If you only want them to. There's good in ten percent of all So think of them when you choose. Life is just a breakfast cereal. Life is just a breakfast cereal. Life is just a breakfast cereal.

THREE COLON OH OH Tony. Attach your head To your fist and swim motion free. Cut through your abdomen and Spill helplessly. Swim motion free. Spill helplessly. Tony was the youngest member Of a gang from Switzerland And he used to lace paprika Into all his pots and pans. Tony is where you are sitting. Tony is behind your chair. With your feet you push your chair back. Tony is no longer there. But I could never find the Tony inside me. Take a little time to See where you're standing. If you have the time in Digital standards You can call me Three colon oh oh. People who are in seclusion Never get the chance to grow. Similar to imitations Of the people that they know. If the proper line is spoken Interchange begins to glow. But the subject in the center Is the one they never know. But I could never find the Tony inside me. Take a little time to See where you're standing. If you have the time in Digital standards You can call me Three colon oh oh. Nothing is real. But I could never find the Tony inside me. Take a little time to See where you're standing. If you have the time in Digital standards You can call me Repetition. But I could never find the Tony inside me. Take a little time to See where you're standing. If you have the time in Digital standards You can call me Repetition. But I could never find the Tony inside me. Take a little time to See where you're standing. If you have the time in Digital standards You can call me Three colon oh oh.
