1. Intro  

(instrumental)





2. Brave Men Run (In My Family) top

[Kim]
Seven days and seven nights
i dreamt a sailor's dream at sea
seven days and seven nights
i dreamt a sailor's dream of me
seven days and siven nights
the world was made and lost again
seven days and seven nights
brave men run
in my family
brave men run
into the setting sun
brave men run
into captivity
brave men run
in my family

brave men run
away from me





3. Society Is A Hole top

[Thurston]
Society is a hole
it makes me lie to my friends
it's running down my street with white power sneakers
on the beautiful beat of black feet
society is a hole

it beats my friends big heads
my friends have big heads
i can understand it but i don't recommend it
you got big big hair and everybody's scared

society is a hole
it makes me lie to my friends
the assault of holy noise there's a slap in my face
my friends are girls wrapped in boys
we are living in pieces i want to live in peace
society is a hole

[talking]





4. I Love Her All The Time top

[Thurston]
She comes into my mind
twisting through my nerves
i don't understand
a word she says
she's on my side
i love her all the time
i love her all the time
i love her all the time
i love her all the time

she comes into my mind
twisting through my nerves
i don't understand
a word she says
she's on my side
i love her all the time
i love her all the time
i love her all the time
i love her all the time





5. Ghost Bitch top

[Kim]
Slowly pour the liquid down
for miles and miles it flows along
rose-colored
neonlight
swirl around
turn around
feel the touch
of my hand
swirl around
swirl around
fellow shadows
black and blue
all around
all around
locking arms
side by side
crouch down
before the fire's light
you're the first day of my life

i had no belief before
'till i had this dream last night
i still remember their savage cries
so serious in their right
faces painted in joyous fright
in the dawn's early light
oh say did you see
the colour of my eternity
and the sweat on my skin
our founding fathers laid right down
indian ghosts from long ago
they gave birth to my bastard kin
America it is called
sensation of eternity
locking arms side by side
crouch down before the fire's light
you're the first day of my life





6. I'm Insane top

[Thurston]
Love starved backwood teaser farm girl hot eyed bride
stone cold blonde a quivering menace atomic wallop wholesale murder
we want out
we fish at night
sex in heaven
tough town
a cruel touch
sailors leave
sirens screaming
lap of luxury
a show of violence
take off your mask
lay off my brother
kiss my fist
stop at nothing
a steaming swamp
and a troubled heart
the sky is red
and i can't stop running
her baby stares
the secret's there
so help us god
i'll swing at your funeral
the stubborn air
the killer mob
a red bone woman
a double cross
big fake bitter love underbelly freezing jungle
one step more he'll stir your senses scratch your surface and nail your head
murded angels
bodies in bedlam
a women scorned
you can't hang me
tied to my job a blast scene alibi tied to a tree in a blind alley
nothing before
a big fear
don't get caught
by her father's friends
swamp girl faded
the tiger's wife
a frenzied love
hot climate
twisted passions
flesh parade
dead ahead
a world so wide
big river love camp
the house boy and hill girl
the agony column
don't crowd me
it's time for crime
strange breed river girl's misery index
inside my head my dog's a bear
she was significant
i'm insane

inside my head my dog's a bear
she was significant
i'm insane

inside my head my dog's a bear
she was significant
i'm insane

inside my head my dog's a bear
she was significant

i'm insane

9. Satan Is Boring top

What are you waiting for?

satan flirts
i'm prepared
it's nothing to conquer
the fight is good
your flesh has a limit
of too many years
it's a shock absorber of your stinging tears
the satisfaction
and power
and control
and piss
is ruled by the laws of deception
lost in laws of deception
we shake our heads
as your tables turn
they'll always turn
and you'll never burn
that's the real promise
you'll never burn
you get the lies
we get the fire
you get the lies
we get the fire

11. Halloween top

[Kim]
There's something shifting in the distance
don't know what it is
days days and night [???]
except for the feeling that's
growing up inside of me as you
sing your song as you
swing along and you're
it's your, your song

it's the devil in me
makes me stare at you as you
twist up along you
sing your song and you
slipping up to me and you're
so close i just a
wanna touch you and i
sing your song and you
dont know what's going on but you
wanna me to come along as you
sing your song and you're
fucking with me as you
slither up to me
your lips there
slipping twisting at my
insides and singing on
you're just a
swinging man, it's not your
swinging song and now i
don't know what you want but
you're looking at me and you're
falling to the ground and you're
twisting around fucking with my
my mind and i don't know what
's going on

swinging in your song
twisting me on as you
slither up to me and it's gotta be
and i don't know what you wanna do
and you're looking at me with your big dark eyes
and you're revving/rubbing your body

twisting
