Track Name: Hostile Populace
In the local park I was walkin' passin' by
the wind was blowin' rain in my face and in my eyes
so I strapped my hood onto my head shoved my hands in my pockets and sighed
the weather could not bring me down no matter how hard she tried

And it's leave me alone as I walk your way
hostile populace go away

In the local park I was walkin' passin' by
the wind was blowin' rain in my face and in my eyes
so I lit up half of a cigarette and placed you in my mind
I sang a song in my head and walked with the beat in time
Track Name: We Have The Right (Not) To Work
Hey everybody grasp the diversity
eclectic checklist choose who you wanna be
dirty pores and sunburned rat races while the cats burn the wrinkles offa their faces

We have the right not to work
we have the right to pursue
anything within reason that we wanna do

Minimum wage equals minimum passion
hours sold for a pauper's ration
spent of vitality too pooped to pray
Edison's child the substituted illuminating ray
Track Name: Fearless Tearless Peerless
Well I watch people come and I watch them go
full of ego and bravado
culminating in a fuckin' social mask
one no human can ever match

It's like your master shouted beg speak fetch and wag
if you don't like something you call it a fag
you know you're causin' harm with acceptable slang
a fuckin' slave to your generation again

Nobody's fearless tearless or peerless

All you wanna do is make money and fuck
drive the car they tell you is the one you want
with a playstation, man like that guy I like
we listen to his records while were cruisin' for a fight

Tsuppashiru ze sukini yarudake
tsuppasiru ze baka mitaini

Nobody's fearless tearless or peerless
Track Name: Coast To Coast
If you think that it's fascinating and you're lookin' for a new propulsion system to make you go
you could do worse
than to get in your bunker hand crank your radio
but what did you wanna do when you were a boy
did you think you'd be talkin' to a possessed toy
well I guess she's probably glad you decided to

Hey! Hey! Do you wanna be in radio
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna hear a story
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna talk to everyone
everyone's gonna hear it from coast to coast

A friend of mine's an amatuer astrologist
he wants to talk to your guest the astrophysicist
and I'm something of an amatuer scientist
prepare to disclose all that you learned while securing area LI
everyone doubts that my homeade car can fly
who can help me get this information out quick who? You!

Hey! Hey! Do you wanna be in radio
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna hear a story
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna talk to everyone
everyone's gonna hear it from coast to coast

Hey! Hey! Do you wanna be in radio
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna hear a story
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna talk to everyone
everyone's gonna hear it from coast to coast

Hey! Hey! Do you wanna be in radio
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna talk to everyone
Hey! Hey! Do you wanna tell a story
everyone's gonna hear it from coast to coast
Track Name: National National
We don't wanna study the law we all think we know better than you
we'll find a way to make quick cash so we can get tribal tattoos
gotta hunt for what do we do before and after a reality smear
well what comes naturally and makes a problem severe
appear

I welcome everyone of every race and class and creed
trust me you can have everything even the veneer of feeling free
hey what'd you do don't peek back there don't look behind my back
you wouldn't like what you see I told you you'd only feel
free

I will for me - national national
you are my tree - national national
come in bathe me - national national
I tempt with intrigue - national national

Calm down kid
it's all in your frame of mind
you can take it from me I decided to hide my doubts
inside

Blood to pay thee - national national
he will aid me - national national
delusions plague me - national national
I feed on greed - national national

National national

A good idea gone wrong some say - national national
good intentions you know what they say
Track Name: The Nine Lives Of The Night Life
It is the nine lives of the night life

Kid Geoff was a runaway
couldn't cope with the gap of age
introduced after school one day
found his home in the bars I'm afraid
it ain't easy he's got the scars to prove it over wrong name sport or ideology
Geoff's right time is the night time
walkin' home at 10 AM

It is the nine lives of the night life

Cocaine Carl we call him flash
spent all his money at the dog track
a dog track that don't exist
we all know where the money went
he's another one that doesn't sleep
the night life is his retreat
pina colada sex on the beach oh please
he acts rich but can't afford to eat

It is the nine lives of the night life

And then there's Mary Eve
she spends her nights an money on dance and drink
o-o-h ooh I don't belong to anyone
majored in biology
I wish you'd spend your nights with me
(I wish she'd spend her nights with me)
o-o-ooh Mary Eve

There's the ones that wanna help the night lifers
don't know if they'll let them
can't attend an intervention
unless it starts at least by 9 PM
raise a glass for Geoff and Carl
Eve comma Mary too
aw those little guys keep goin' and goin' and goin'

It is the nine lives of the night life

Posters on the walls and lavatory scrawls tell the stories of humans that some would find apalling but just keep in mind and always take to heart that the people that hurt are the ones who roam the dark
Track Name: Stick 'Em Up Rude Boys
Surprise surprise is on our side
sippin' up the liquid arid dry
a desert movement camel line it's worth a moment it's worth our try
down in the city republic
holiday market is hectic
holy shit
down with the current republic

Stick 'em up - boys
stick 'em up - boys
we're the stick 'em up rude boys

when we go out my girl gets pissed
she's a theoretical physicist
it's just physics equilibrium
I'm gonna talk about guns
hands in the air force a robbery
pedestrian psychos on shopping spree
the indecent outcome of factory
there's only love and insanity

Stick 'em up - boys
stick 'em up - boys
we're the stick 'em up rude boys

The best the worst system can spit out
toastin' over walther P38 shouts
Captain Stillburg searchin' for the right words to try to calm us down

Stick 'em up - boys
stick 'em up - boys
we're the stick 'em up rude boys
Track Name: All On You
We walked Hunchback Houston with one thing on your mind
you say you love me but you're happy all the time

Fuck I'm lame

Don't flatter yourself
it's not pity admiration or adherence
I'm wastin' my time and it's all on you

Just because I call you all the time don't mean I care
I'll take the last train baby don't go anywhere

Fuck I'm lame

Don't flatter yourself
it's not pity admiration or adherence
I'm wastin' my time and it's all on you

Went downtown 'cause I had a date
left really early but I got there late
sat at a booth who's mad you
don't be cruel said Wong Chin Foo
slip in a puddle spill a glass of water
all on you

Don't flatter yourself
it's not pity admiration or adherence
I'm wastin' my time and it's all on you
don't flatter yourself
it's not pity admiration or adherence
I'm wastin' my time and it's all on you
I'm wastin' my time and it's all on you
I spent my last dime and it's all on you
I'll pin my crime and it's all on you

All on you - all on you
Track Name: Bilateral
No one knows and no one cares
Goldilocks three little bears
starving children and amputees
swelling up allergic to honey bees
all it is is tits and beer
cars cool bars inflicting fear
can't we see through other's eyes
can't we find a pulse

Yeah - no

Many cops and many crooks
Robin Hood's a hero in storybooks
Mochaccinos and hip cafes
flares and cutoffs lingerie
don't ask me and don't ask him - we are all ignorant
let's take the time to learn about what's going on outside America

Yeah - no
