LYRICS:
 
BLEW:
 
If you wouldn't mind I would like it blew
If you wouldn't mind I would like it loose
If you wouldn't care I would like to leave
If you wouldn't mind I would like to breathe
Is there another reason for your stain
Could you believe him when you discussed his stain?
Here is another word that rhymes with shame
You could do anything
 
Floyd the Barber
 
Bell on door clanks come on in
Floyd observes my hairy chin
Sit down chair don't be afraid
Steamed hot towel on my Face

I was shaved 3x

Barney ties me to the chair
I can't see I'm really scared
Floyd breathes hard I hear a zip
Pee-pee pressed against my lips

I was Shamed 3x

I sense others in the room
Opey, Aunt Bee, I presume
They take turns and Cut me up
I die smothered in Andys butt

I was shaved 3x
About a Girl
 
I need an easy friend
(I do) With an ear to lend
(I do) Think you fit this shoe
(I do) But you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night (for) free
I do

I'm standing in your line
(I do) Hope you have the time
(I do) Pick a number to
(I do) Keep a date with you

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night (for) free
I do

I need an easy friend
(I do) With an ear to lend
(I do) Think you fit this shoe
(I do) But you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night,
no I can't see you every night...
For free

I do ... (x4)
 
School
 
(x4)
Won't you believe it
It's just my luck

(x3)
No recess

(x4)
Won't you believe it
It's just my luck

(x3)
No recess

(x7)
You're in high school again

(Screamed)
You're nothing again!

(x7)
No recess

Love Buzz
 
Would you believe me when I tell you
You are the queen of my heart
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you
Just ain't the way it seems

(x4)
Can you feel my love buzz?

Would you believe me when I do you
You are the queen of my heart
Please don't deceive me when I hurt you
Just ain't the way it seems

(x4)
Can you feel my love buzz?
 
Paper Cuts
 
When I'm feeling tired
She puts food through the door
And I crawl towards the cursed light
Sometimes I can't find my way
Newspapers spread around
Soaking all that they can
A cleaning is due again
A good hosing down

The lady whom I feel maternal love for
Cannot look me in the eyes
But I see hers and they are blue
And they cock and twist and masturbate!

I said so (x3)
Nirvana (x6)

Black windows of paint
I scratched with my nails
I see others just like me
Why do they not try to escape?
They bring out the older ones
They point at my way
They come with flashing lights
And take my family away

And lately i have learned to
Accept some friends of ridicule
My whole existence is for your amusement
And that's why i'm here with you
Today
Meet me

You are right
Nirvana (x8)
 
Negative Creep
 
This is out of our reach (x3)
and it's grown
This is getting to be (x3)
drone
I'm a negative creep (x3)
and I'm stoned!
I'm a negative creep (x3)
and I'm ... (x2)

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x6)

This is out of our range (x3)
and it's crude
This is getting to be (x3)
like drone
I'm a negative creep (x3)
and I'm stoned!
I'm a negative creep (x3)
and I'm ... (x2)

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x6)

Fuck! Yeah!
Drone!
Stoned!

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x14)
 
Scoff
 
VERSE:
In my eyes, I'm not lazy
In my face, It's not over
In your room, I'm not older
In your eyes, I'm not worth it

CHORUS:
Gimmie back my alcohol(8x)
Gimmie back my(2x)
Gimme back...
Heal a million, Kill a million
Peel a million, Feel a million
Heal a million, Kill a million

VERSE

Gimmie back my alcohol(8x)
Gimmie back my(2x)
Gimmie back...

CHORUS

Yeah...

SOLO

VERSE

Gimmie back my alcohol(8x)
Gimmie back my(2x)
Gimmie back...

CHORUS

Ahhhh... Ohhh...
 
Swap Meet
 
(x3)
They lead a lifetime that is comfortable
They travel far to keep their stomachs full
They make their living off of arts and crafts
The kind with seashells, driftwood and burlap
They make a deal when they come to town
The Sunday swap meet is a battle ground
She loves him more than he will ever know
He loves her more than he will ever show

-- Keeps his cigarettes close to his heart
-- Keeps her photographs close to her heart
-- Keeps the bitterness close to the heart
 
Mr. Moustache
 
Fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up with indecision
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Show me how you question, question
Lead the way to my temptations
Take my hand and keep it clean
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Easy in an easy chair
-- Poop as hard as a rock.
I don't like you anyway
-- Seal it in a box

Damn You

Fill me in on your new vision
Wake me up with indecision
Help me trust your mighty wisdom
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Show me how you question, question
Lead the way to my temptations
Take my hand and keep it clean
Yes I eat cow - I am not proud.

Easy in an easy chair
-- Poop as hard as rock.
I don't like you anyway
-- Seal it in a box

(x4)
Damn You
 
Sifting
 
Afraid - to grade
Wouldn't it be fun?
Cross, self loss (Alt: Cross, says floss)
Wouldn't it be fun?
Wet your bed
Wouldn't it be fun?
Sun felt numb (Alt: Some fear none)
Wouldn't it be fun?

Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Preacher said

"Don't have nothing for you" (x7)

Spell the smell
Wouldn't it be fun?
Search for a church
Wouldn't it be fun?
Wet your bed
Wouldn't it be fun?
Cold in coals
Wouldn't it be fun?

Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Your eyes ...
Teacher said,
Your eyes ...
Preacher said (x2)

"Don't have nothing for you" (x7)

"Don't have nothing for you" (x9)
 
Big Cheese
 
Big cheese - make me
Mine says, "Go [to] the office"

Big cheese - make me
Mine says, "One that stays"

Black is black, straight back
Need more enemies

Sure you are, but what am I? (Alt: Show you all what a man is)
We were enemies

Big lies - make mine
Mine says "Go [to] the office"

Big cheese - make me
Message? What is it?

Black is black, straight back

Need more enemies
She eats glue, how 'bout you? (Alt: She is glue, how are you?)

Big cheese - make me
Mine says "Go [to] the office"

Big cheese - make me
Message? What is it?

Black is black, straight back
We were enemies
She eats glue, how 'bout you? (Alt: She is glue, how are you?)

Black is black, straight back
We were enemies
Sure you are, but what am I?
We were enemies
She eats glue, how 'bout you? (Alt: She is glue, how are you?)
We were enemies
Sure you are, but what am I?
 
Downer
 
Portray sincerity,act out of loyalty
Defend your true country,wish away...pain!
Hand out lobotomies to save little families
Surrealistic fantasy,bland boring...plain!

Hold me down in restitution,living out your date with fusion
Is the whole fleece shun in bastard?don't feel guilty,master writing!

Somebody said that they're not much like I am,I know I can
Make up enougn words for you to follow along,I sink and then some...

Slippery,pessimist,hypocrite master
Conservative,communist,apocalyptic bastard
Thank you dear God...for putting me on this...earth!
I feel very privileged in debt for my...thirst!

Hold me down in restitution,living out your date with fusion
Is the whole fleece shun in bastard?don't feel guilty,master writing!

Somebody said that they're not much like I am,I know I can
Make up enough words for you to follow along,I sink and then some...

Trap!...
