Track Name: Idea (second recording)
IDEA

You take all the fame
And I'll take all the sorrow.
You can have it all
And I'll be glad with nothing.
You can have anything
That means so much to me.
You can have everything
And you'll leave me here with nothing,
Nothing at all.
All my ideas are now your ideas
When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.
But my ideas are not your ideas
And what is right is not right anymore.

You can be content
In knowing I'm not happy.
You've got many friends
And I know they won't like me.
You can step on top of me
And I won't move at all.
You can step on anything
But you'll leave me here with nothing,
Nothing at all.
All my ideas are now your ideas
When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.
But my ideas are not your ideas
And what is right is not right anymore.

We continue on
And make ourselves believe that
Things are still the same
Although we know they really are not.
You can have anything
That means so much to me.
You can have everything
You're going to leave me here with nothing,
Nothing at all.
All my ideas are now your ideas
When all my thoughts are now your thoughts.
But my ideas are not your ideas
And what is right is not right anymore.
Track Name: Hide In Fiction's Hands (second recording)
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.
Listen to my voice,
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.
Track Name: The Planet Eats
THE PLANET EATS

A meeting is on his sail.
A meeting is on his sail.
I meant to be
But you know what you want to be
Inside the mind.
My answer, seeds.
Wobble around with the thought that it will not stop.
Turn it around when you know you're doing to drop.
"I'll stop," you say.
But either way is still the same.
I've been away.
The planet eats.
Eats.
Navigate over the fifth of every failure.
Anticipate lost off return
Somewhere in Australia
Or Budapest.
Forget the rest, you're so obsessed.
It makes no sense.
My answer, freeze.
Track Name: Suggestion for Rock Culture in the 90s
SUGGESTION FOR ROCK CULTURE IN THE 90s

The time has passed for us to imitate.
It's gone on too long so say so long
And don't emulate.
And just because you like to hear their sound
That doesn't mean you have to wear
The things they're wearing.
Copying is square.

When you grow up,
When you get old,
Yeah, you won't care
That great big companies
Make profits from the idol creeps
That lead you nowhere.
Though you identify with prerecorded hardware,
That doesn't mean you have to wear
The things they're wearing
Copying is air.

Rock, it is not my god
To suffer appreciation,
Unneeded like me.
It's the newest thing.
You don't have to fit in a scene.
Ah ha ha ha.
The situation cries forever more.
I hope by 1993 that you won't worship
Me.

The time has passed for us to imitate.
It's gone on too long so say so long
And don't emulate.
The situation cries forever more.
Perhaps by 1998
The world may grow up.
Great.

Anything you wanna do today
Just blows away.
Can't resolve the way that you behave.
We're all the same.
Anything you wanna do today
Just blows away.
Can't resolve the way that you behave.
We're all the same.

Stereotypes.
Turn on your radio and
Think like that.
Track Name: Located and Pointed
LOCATED AND POINTED

Harry and Sue don't go out anymore.
Sue is located and
Harry is pointed.
They don't think cuz they don't have a lot.
And when they feel they know
There isn't a lot.
They can't see it.
There is no reason to be involved in this.
They never wanted to be apart.
Unless the reasons were the reasons were the reasons
Were the...

Stroking the veins
That she thought she had bought.
She doesn't fit
Except where she's fitting.
She doesn't think she does not have a lot.
And when she feels she knows
There isn't a lot.
She can't see it.
There is no reason to be involved in this.
She never wanted to be apart
Unless the reasons were the reasons were the reasons
Were the...

And I don't think it's a part anymore.
And I don't think it's a part anymore.
Track Name: Mistakes Made In Time
MISTAKES MADE IN TIME

Was there life in an ocean.
Was there life nobody could see.
Let's compare what
But not understand why.
On the earth's where
I should not be.

Time is taking everywhere I go.
Time is taking everywhere I'll stay.
Sometimes I take a look around
To realize I've lost my mind.
I wonder why you're laughing all the time.

Time is taking everywhere I go.
Time is taking everywhere I'll stay.
Sometimes I take a look around
To realize I've lost my mind.
I wonder why you're laughing all the time.

But not understand why.
On the earth's where
I should not be.

Time is taking everywhere I go.
It's taking everywhere I'll stay.
Sometimes I take a look around
To realize I've lost my mind.
I wonder why mistakes
Are made in time.
Track Name: Automobile History
AUTOMOBILE HISTORY

Dead away, dead or not.
I know a place we can get away.
You decayed away much too soon
I a living recounting doom.
I give whatever you want to you.
"I'm replaced," you say.
But you're not.
An imitation can mean a lot.
You'll come back one day.
You say you don't know when.
When does immediate end?
You take whatever you want with you.

You were an automobile.
Remember automobiles?
In automobile history
You were an automobile.
The car has a wheel
And you so cold
You're like frozen monuments with careers.
Am I damaged?
So long to your ears.

Does it take your fate,
Does it not
Like so many times.
Throw it out the door again.
Start all over again.
You lose whenever you start to win.

You were an automobile.
Remember automobiles?
In automobile history
You were an automobile.
The car has a wheel
And you're so cold
Like frozen monuments with careers.
Am I damaged?
So long to your ears.
To your ears.
To your ears.

Any car can be the focus
Of your dreams
If you just do the things you wanna do.

You were an automobile.
You were an automobile.
You were an automobile.
You were an automobile.

The car has a wheel.
Track Name: It's Your Head...Ignited
IT'S YOUR HEAD...IGNITED

Not my head. Not my head.
It's your head.
Not my head. Not my head.
It's your head.

Think of the start.
Right where you float, you chart
And Brian,
You won't commit it to a spokesman.
That's what I am.

Ignited. Ignited.
It's your head.
Ignited. Ignited.
It's your head.

Marilyn goes to every place the most
Except for Zion
And Allen doesn't see his worth.
Gotta watch the time bend.

In our heads (x7).

Money looks the same even though
You connect a fuse and watch it explode.
Countries look the same as the seas.
Fear and umbrellas calling.
Familiarity.

Finding the end.
It happens now and then.
Whatever the cost.
You're too committed to your own plan.
A Santa Claus man.

Ignited. Ignited. It's your head.
Ignited. Ignited. It's your head.

Money looks the same even though
You connect a fuse and watch it explode.
Countries look the same as the seas.
Fear and umbrellas calling.
Track Name: Garbage
GARBAGE

Someday we'll be commodities
Stuck in a record shop.
You'll get a discount on Thursdays.
We'll lose our creativity.
The songs will sound the same
Every time around.

One day you'll play our records in your homes.
One day you'll have our pictures on your walls
And it won't get you anywhere
And it won't get us anywhere.
Garbage.

Music. It all just sounds the same.
Some people don't complain.
They get a check every Thursday.
One day it might not be this way.
But that's the way it is.
And it will always continue on.

One day you'll play our records in your homes.
One day you'll have our pictures on your walls
And it won't get you anywhere
And it won't get us anywhere.
Garbage.

Track Name: No Colors
NO COLORS

You throw life away.
You give yourself away
To anyone that wants is.
What do I see.
No colors.

I'm frustrated by your stupid friends.
I can't relate to people
With no intellect.
I'd like to help you but there is no use.
I think you privately thrive on abuse.

CRYING YOUR LIFE AWAY

Cry. Cry. Cry. Cry.

What if we live to be one hundred.
What if we live to be two hundred.
What if we live to be three hundred.
What if we live to be four hundred.

Why are you crying your life away.
Why are you lying your life away.

Winter begins and you don't notice.
Spring begins and you don't notice.
Winter begins and you don't notice.
Fall.

It isn't easy to see.
Do you think that it's easy.
Why are you crying your life away.
Why are you lying your life away.

Nobody no, nobody no, nobody no.
There's no one.
Nobody no, nobody no.
There's no one.

It isn't easy to see.
Do you think that it's easy.
Why are you crying your life away.

I have to know that this will last.
Indecision always passes,
Bye.

Do you think that it's easy.
Why are you crying your life away.
Why are you lying your life away.

OTHER PROJECTS FOR MY EYES, A.D.

Anyway, anywhere you don't go.
The overflows flow to a place I don't know.
Everything is so unfair.
I don't know if I can get there.
Don't you ever feel confused.
Only the stupid get used.
In a way I wanna know.
In another way I don't wanna know.
This is the way it's gonna stay.
Another projector and other projects
For my eyes.

Violence has it's place in our town.
You can watch it burn down and
Decay in the ground.
Everything is so unfair.
I don't know if I can get there.
Don't you ever feel confused.
Only the stupid get used.
In a way I wanna know.
In another way I don't wanna know.
This is the way it's gonna stay.
Another projector and other projects
For my eyes.

There's a place, it's not far away.
I know that we can't find it.
I'd rather have a place in mind,
Some place, somewhere it's a life line.
No life after death.
No life after death.
Never mind, pack your bags to go.
I know a place we can't go.
I know a place that isn't there, nowhere,
That's where I'll be going
After death.
After death.

Two. Four. Six. I forget
That it isn't done yet.
If it's easy, destroy me.
Was that a pony or a car?
So far.
Visit the cemeteries.
In a way I wanna know.
In another way I don't wanna know.
This is the way it's gonna stay.
Another projector and other projects
For my eyes.

Projects for my eyes.
Projects for my eyes.
Track Name: Goodbye Hi Hi
GOODBYE HI HI

Clandestine skies.
Hypochondriacs arise.
Where are you in a year.
You'll gotta get out of here
With your distance
Cuz in an instant it goes by
And terminates.
Goodbye.

Embellishments don't know why
Hypochondriacs don't drive.
Where are you in a year.
You'll find your way out of here
With your distance
Cuz in an instant it goes by
And terminates.
Goodbye.

Turn back. Turn your back and
You won't have to see.
Hold back your silence and
Make no enemies.

At the end of your life
You'll no longer be alive and
You won't contemplate on
What you once missed.
In the distance
Cuz in an instant it goes by
And terminates.
Goodbye.

Turn back. Turn your back and
You won't have to see.
Hold back your silence and
Make no enemies.
At the end of your life
You'll no longer be alive.
Track Name: Run Out of Rush
RUN OUT OF RUSH

You don't believe what you say.
You don't believe what you think.
Yeah, you'll never go away.
You've got no reason to see.

In a world where there is nothing wrong
You might see it different all along.
When it's over everything is gone.

You're not impressed with the view.
You're getting over that now.
And everyone that you knew,
They don't believe in you now.

You don't believe what you say.
You don't believe what you think.
Yeah, you'll never go away.
You've got no reason to see.

In a world protection won't be right.
You're disturbed when you get up at night
In a world where everything is right.

In a world where there is nothing wrong
You might see it different all along.
When it's over everything is gone.

Your rotten flesh never heals.
You're getting lighter each day.
You'll never run out of rush.
I still remember that way.
And why is this so wrong.
Why do we act as if there's nothing wrong.
And why is this so wrong.

You don't believe what you say.
Track Name: Coordinate Your Lies
COORDINATE YOUR LIES

You're somewhere else,
Somewhere so far away.
Tomorrow night seems just like yesterday.
No one can say what you can't say.

We're having lunch
Much like we used to do.
A dozen crunch doesn't have much to do with this.
The colors change.
It isn't strange.

A car collides, witch.
The corruption cries.
The big mistake, better than any made.
The world replies.
Coordinate your lies.

So many squares,
So many shapes to size.
To cut and paste,
Easy to memorize.
No one can say
What you can say.
Track Name: Rewind
REWIND

In the sunlight of your philosophy.
There we were.
We're on an ocean, see?
The return of what had never begun.
I recall recalling you can't see.

Although the road you're on's not easily defined.
Sometimes the change is changing
Only in your mind
In situations where there's nothing left to find...
You'll rewind.

Maybe someday the future goes away.
Pass the word that your awareness brings.
The return of what had never begun.
I recall recalling you can't see.

Although the road you're on's not easily defined.
Sometimes the change is changing
Only in your mind
In situations where there's nothing left to find...
You'll rewind.

The return of what had never begun.

Going on.

SHIVERS FOR THE GREASE

Reach for the sky.
In just a moment you may die and
It's a difference that you see.
Cheers for your cries
Fall in a crest where you lie
And it's so difficult to see.
What isn't wrong.
What isn't right.
You're living your afterlife.

Hows into whys.
They're only words for the wise and
Only shivers for the grease.
What isn't wrong.
What isn't right.
You're living your afterlife.

What isn't wrong.
What isn't right.
You're living your afterlife.

Hows into whys.
They're only words for the wise and
Only shivers for the grease.
Please don't take long.
Please make it right,
Giving me afterlife.
Please don't take long.
Please make it nice.
You're giving me afterlife.
Track Name: Hot Daddy Pig
HOT DADDY PIG

I'm sorry that I was so mean.
I should have never done those things.
Looking back I see we'll never be that way again.
You should've known and you should've been.

We don't regret the times gone by.
Instead the past makes me wonder why.
Looking back I see we'll never be that way again.
We should've known and we should've been.

We don't live like we used to live.
We don't think like we used to think and
We won't be what we never were.
You had a light that shone so bright.

You had a light that shone so bright.
It's going out now into the night.
You're going back to see you'll never
Look that way again.
You should've known and you should've been.
We don't live like we used to live.
We don't think like we used to think and
We won't be what we never were.
You had a light that shone so bright.

We don't live like we used to live.
We don't think like we used to think and
We won't be what we never were.
You had a light that shone so bright.
Track Name: Mnemonic
MNEMONIC

Anywhere you want is here.
Cuz if they're not
Who would've thought you were home.
It's in your heart to take you right
Where you belong.
What do you wanna hear.
The hearing's over.
What did you lose that you own.
It took you back to where you knew
You don't belong.

Where have the answers all gone.
Away to where they fall
Far away into the sun.

What do you want to hear.
What do you want.
When you can't turn this off.
Where's the phone.
You had to check to see if there
Was someone home.

Where have the answers all gone.
Away to where they fall
Far away into the sun.

I wish I were alone.
I wish I were alone.
I wish I were alone
But then I'm glad I'm not.
There's nothing wrong.
I guess we'll aways be where we
Were all along.

Where have the answers all gone.
To where they fall
Far away into the sun.
Where have the answers all gone.
To where they fall
Far away into the sun.

It's funny if you don't believe it, do you.
It's funny if you don't believe it, do you.
It's funny if you don't believe it, do you.
It's funny if you don't believe it.
Track Name: Return I Send
RETURN I SEND

They let me in but won't let go.
I hope it's only temporary.
Do you know about complexities and shacks.
You goodbye before you go.
Will you go and
Will you return again
Cuz what you return I send
To you.

How many friends fall through the door.
I hope you won't remember many.
Less is more.
You've got a home in every crack
When you forget the more you know
And you grow.
And maybe return again
Cuz what you return I send
To you.

When you turn you're turning back.
If you ever think you're gonna crack
Just laugh.

Return I send.
Return I send.
Return I send.

The words will blur and dribble away.
I hope you won't remember many.
Do you know how many rights can be so wrong.
I said how long before you go.
Say hello.

Will you return again
Cuz what you return I send
To you.

When you turn you're turning back.
If you ever think you're gonna crack
Just laugh.
Track Name: Size
SIZE

Terror and reasons
Distinct for all seasons
You won't find the reasons
Why bother to look at all.
Cuz when you open wide
You never know until you've tried
Until you open wide
You'll never know the right size.

There must be compassion
To temper the fashion
A reason for rationing.
Why figure it out at all.
Cuz when you open wide
You never know until you've tried
Until you open wide
You'll never know the right size.

Generate action
With no satisfaction
Delay your reaction
Why even try to exist at all.
Cuz when you open wide
You never know until you've tried
Until you open wide
You'll never know the right size.
Track Name: More or Less
MORE OR LESS

So many eyes have seen
So many more that mean
Less the rest that you find outside and
You'll ignore their size.
More or less you finally compress the stress
From what is meaningless.

I hope that I'm not wrong.
You made me go along when
I would've just declined
What wasn't there to find.
More or less you finally dispense the sense
From what is meaningless.

Whose confession finally led to depression.

But more and more and more and more
And more and more you really can't ignore.
You prefer to keep on playing a game.
More or less you finally dispense the sense
From what is meaningless.

So many eyes have seen
So many more that mean
Less the rest that you find outside and
You'll ignore their size.
More or less you finally compress the stress.

Unless you can hurt me.
Hurt my knees.
Make sure the camera's on and
Control us please and
Kill me please.

Break my back.
I wanna have a heart attack.
My vote won't count in your election.
Steal my drugs.
I've loaded them with poison,
Sealed with love.
Break my back.

Fix my wagon.
Now it's broken.
It won't go
Unless you can help me.
My my oh
I'm so afraid that you'll let go again.
Then where will I go, oh.

When it's splitting open
I won't be dead.
Is that what you were hoping.
Throw my brain
Into an empty garbage can again.
Then where will you go.

I resent our masks.
I resent the poor.
I resent the weak.
I resent my puppet cuz
I've got no strings.

Come and close your eyes
To the world outside
And wander in the window.
Hold your hands and pray today and
Turn your face away.
Turn your face away.

I resent the theater.
I resent friendship.
I resent the human nature.
I resent the trip.
Come and close your eyes
To the world outside
And wander in the window.
Hold your hands and pray today and
Turn your face away.
Turn your face away.

You can turn your face away.

I resent.

STOP ON SUNDAY

Life means nothing.
Love does not exist.
If it all means something
I don't know what is.
It used to be a game
And everything seemed funny.
Now it isn't humorous.
Watch it stop on Sunday.

Life means nothing.
Nothing.
Love does not exist.
If it all means something
I just don't know what that is.
It used to be a game and
Everything seemed funny.
Now it isn't humorous.
