Track Name: Solid Gold
there's champagne to be poppin'
karm sutra for the coppin'
but you're looking much worse
than a cannonball being shot right through a fancy home
lots to be confessin'
bloody nose for the lesson
that looks much worse than it is
no need to moan and it's nobody's fault but your own
trunks to be locked in
pound of flesh and one more gin
red eyes rollin' down the empty hall
in the song about somebody's wonderwall

it must be friday
action-packed and long
coming at you sideways
until your blues be gone

some stories we'll be swappin'
strap your boots in and you're stompin'
you push on it hard til it hurts
and when it folds
wrap it up in gold and take it home
even though you're still survivin'
you scream to feel alive and
the last pull from the bong is too long
and we all end up in bed diagonal
you can hear the music playin'
yeah you diggin' what it saying
you push on it hard til it hurts
and when it folds
wrap it up in gold and take it home

it doesn't seem to matter that you ain't dead yet
you walk around
solid gold
incognito
and on a roll
Track Name: She Should Be The Queen
she runs her black nails down my spine
up in her bedroom
pretty collection of bloody lines
lonely men outside

the street light glows orange in the night
it casts the shadows
little men in trench coats killing time
they stay up all night

they want to pull her out through the window
watch her die in the machine
she should be the queen
they want to pull her out through the window
give the people what they need
she should be the queen

she wears black and red wigs sometimes
teaches me lessons
another world for a small price
all night every night
Track Name: Out Of The Movies
it all started in the blink of an eye
the soft slaughter
and the wrong number
and the near future trapped under water

evacuate Japan and California

it all started in the blink of an eye
the propaganda
and eat what you’re force fed
and the lost space of all things sacred

evacuate Japan and California

you dig the hole
to create me
hate me
you dig the hole just to break me
Track Name: Giraffe
here I go again
sticking my neck out for a friend
I got some neck to spare

giraffe

trees blowin’ in the wind
extra long and thin
I want to be your man

giraffe

it feels gigantic
it creeps up slanted
a true romantic

here I go again
sticking my neck out for a friend
I got some neck to spare

giraffe

it feels gigantic
it creeps up slanted
a true romantic
Track Name: Bareback
when I stepped in the room
there was Star Wars on your mother’s tube and my
next thought
as your panties were tossed
was how hard this was gonna throb
and I cannot deny
I wanna dig my heels in and get you high
up the stripper’s pole
ball gag in a bowl
and half a pack
yeah a half pack of smokes

then we’re going to the rodeo
funky cowboy styles
I give you pleasure with my best rope
now tie a knot

yeah you have that kinky grin on your face
half part demon half part angel and my
next thought
since your panties are lost or maybe misplaced
it’s time to get you off
and I cannot deny
when you wear those heels it gets me high
the stripper’s pole
the ball gag in a bowl
and half a pack
yeah a half pack of smokes
Track Name: Spinning
he had a strong drink and an accent she couldn’t guess
he had a safe word because of what happened out west
she looked at him with an eager grin
he laughed out loud and ordered one more gin

he had a strong drink and some stories that seemed to impress
she had an ironic ‘just say maybe’ button pinned to her chest
she looked at him and kissed his chin
he laughed out loud and ordered one more gin

she looked at him and rubbed his shin
he felt the first hints of getting sucked in

spinning out of control
spinning out of all control
spinning out of control

she looked at him with a shaky grin
he squeezed her thigh and remembered when

she stormed into the room in the ugly pink dress
took a mouthful of candy and invited him to bed
she stormed into the room in the ugly pink dress
took a mouthful of candy and invited him to bed

spinning out of control
spinning out of all control
spinning out of control
spinning out of all control

he had a strong drink and an accent she couldn’t guess
he had a safe word because of what happened out west

she stormed into the room in the ugly pink dress
Track Name: Tarantula
sweet fever
a dull meat cleaver
two spider bites on my wrist and my finger
had a half seizure ambulance
ride through a forest of chemical madness
I fell on my face due to my persistence
to escape from a permanent past tense
all this trouble
from a motherfuckin’ tarantula

the side effects of the antidote
left me feelin’ like a big black kaleidoscope
eight legged
eight eyed
eight million miles wide
swirlin’ inside my psychedelic mind

eight freaks and
eight leaks
make the sauces with heat
yeah and danger danger danger
so many ways to die

all this trouble
from a motherfuckin’ tarantula
I gotta find the girl that I love
in white rubber gloves
and the overflowin’ cups
at the back of the bus
Track Name: Swim With Sharks
the feeding frenzy can’t be stopped
they were waiting for the meat to drop
swimming in a tricky spot
maybe we should cut it off

dip you in the water do ya
wanna see how sharks are fed?
let the teeth a tear into ya
turn the salty salty water red

your insides on the outside
chunks of you floating
woo
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

the bleeding just can’t be stopped
pouring out the bottom
out of the top
the skin is turning white from shock
from the shock

dip you in the water do ya
wanna see how sharks are fed?
let the teeth a tear into ya
turn the salty water red

your insides on the outside
chunks of you floating
woo
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

dip you in the water do ya
wanna see how sharks are fed?
