1. Schizophrenia  

[Thurston]
I went away to see an old friend of mine
his sister came over she was out of her mind
she said Jesus had a twin who knew nothing about sin
she was laughing like crazy at the trouble i'm in
her light eyes were dancing she is insane
her brother says she's just a bitch with a golden chain
she keeps coming closer saying 'i can feel it in my bones
schizophrenia is taking me home'

my future is static
it's already had it
i could tuck you in
and we can talk about it
i had a dream
and it split the scene
but i got a hunch
it's coming back to me





2. (I Got A) Catholic Block top

[Thurston]
I got a catholic block
inside my head
i let it go to work
bring it all back home

it serves you right
and i can motor down
you got to earn your freedom
get it on my own

i just live forever
there just is no end
i just trust the oppression
like i trust your friends

i got a catholic block
inside my head
i let it play around
iron to gold

come back to me awhile

i got a catholic block it's around my head
i got a catholic block it's blood orange red
i got a catholic block do you like to fuck?
i got a catholic block i guess i'm out of luck





3. Beauty Lies In The Eye top

[Kim]
There's something in the air there
makes you go insane
brings you back to me
it's been so long
all that i have to do
is live along
it's coming coming down
over me
do you want to see
the explosions in my eye
do you want to see
the reflection of
how we used to be
beauty lies
in the eyes of anothers dreams
beauty lies
lost in anothers dream
it's coming coming down
over me
do you want to see
the explosions in my eye
do you want to see
the reflection of
how it used to be

hey baby
hey sweetheart
hey fox come here
hey beautiful
come here sugar





4. Stereo Sanctity top

[Thurston]
Seven
seven

I'm keeping my commision to faith's transmission
two speakers dream the same and skies turn red
satellite flashing down orchard and delancey
i can't get laid cause everyone is dead
hey! gold connections
analog soul waving in your hair
hey! hylozoic directions
she's talking blue streaks everywhere
your spirit is time-reversed to your body
stereographic mix-up field on field
it started growing up the day your body dies
only apparently, real to irreal
hey! stereo stations
perfect image, kneel down
hey! hypostatic information
come on let's hear you turn it around





5. Pipeline / Kill Time top

[Lee]
Stretch me to the point where i stop
run ten thousand miles and then think of me
i think you know the place we should meet
don't worry if it's dark and i'm late

run me out a thin wire
help me to kill this love
i'll join you tonight at the bottom of the well
feel around in the dark until you get the idea

i'm not moving doesn't mean i can't
flame on in my head
my best friend sucked his wife's blood and shriveled up
he was mistaken for sane

we move and groove and cut loose from fear
we should kill time, we'll shut it down
i've got a pipeline straight to the heart of you
opening in my head

bright glass on a chain being wound around us
the twiddling of idle hands
dripping with guilt
a secret form of punishment
axes through skulls
shadow of futility
endless revolt
the shifting of light and shadows

no-one is right
nothing is solid
nothing can be hold in my hand for long

we
should
kill
time





6. Tuff Gnarl top

[Thurston]
He's running on a tuff gnarl in his head
he's got a fatal erection home in bed
he's really smart and he's really fast
he's got a hard tit killer fuck in his past
saints preserve us in hot young stuff
the saving grace is a sonic pig pile
amazing grazing strange and raging
flies are flaring through your brains
spastic flailing literally raising my roof
an adrenal mental man-tool box explodes in music creates utopia
you gnarl out on my nerves you weird and crush the cranking raunch
flesh dirt forcefield lost and found let's burn your broken heart
set our sight on sights not yet set let's scorch your wavo wig
let's poke your eyes out





7. Pacific Coast Highway top

[Kim]
Come on get in the car
let's go for a ride somewhere
i won't hurt you
as much as you've hurt me
let me take you there
before the sun goes down
come on give me your love
come on baby all you have
i wanna take your breath away
come on baby
just like that, you say
you make me feel so crazy
come on get in the car
let's go for a drive somewhere
i won't hurt you
you make me feel so crazy

come on get in the car
let's go for a ride somewhere
i won't hurt you
as much as you've hurt me
let me take you there
before the sun goes down
come on give me your love
come on baby all you have
i wanna take your breath away
come on baby
just like that, you say
you make me feel so crazy
come on get in the car
let's go for a drive somewhere
you make me feel so good
you make me feel so crazy





8. Hot Wire My Heart top

[Thurston]
insulation
in my circulation
i'm a mating rhythm
sick with electricion
nazi operation
devestation

wire up a radio
and i am a mating rhythm
wire up the radio
turn the terror and find my limit

hot wire my heart
hot wire my heart
hot wire my heart

like this

[i feel now?]
they're movin' in
pull the zipper
it's sliding up
i don't have a reason
honey for your best man

wire up a radio
and i am a beating rhythm
wire up for the radio
turn the terror an'

hot wire my heart
hot wire my heart
hot wire my heart

like this

a kicking in the nightshifts
greasing up/a teasing of my fingertips
i think you'll find us
anybody's title???
got my eyes on the controls
turned on let's go

wire up the radio
and i am a mating rhythm
wire up for the radio
turn the treble and fight my limit

hot wire my heart
hot wire my heart
hot wire my heart

like this





9. Cotton Crown top

Love has come to stay in all the way
it's gonna stay forever and every day
it feels like a wish coming true
it feels like an angel dreaming of you
feels like heaven forgiving and getting
feeks like we're fading and celebrating
your carnal spirit spraying i'm gonna laugh it up
you got a cotton crown gonna keep it underground
you're gonna take control of the chemistry
and you're gonna manifest the mistery
you got a magic wheel in your memory
i'm wasted in time and i'm looking everywhere
i don't care where
i don't care where
angels are dreaming of you
angels are dreaming of you
angels are dreaming of you
angels are dreaming of you

New York City is forever kitty
i'm wasted in time and you're never ready
fading fading celebrating
i got your cotton crown
i got your cotton crown
i got your cotton crown
i got your cotton crown
i got your cotton crown
i got it





10. White Cross top

[Thurston]
Burning inside
i cross myself it doesn't help me
cause i'm not smart enough
i'm digging into hot white
learning not to lie
we cross it out and stay away

burning inside
we cross it out and stay away
