Track Name: Who Put the Narc in Anarchy?
Grab 'em by the tie, grab 'em by the throat - tell the whole world it's a big joke, joke - inadequate everyone - If you can't fool the system into going away, put a little dynamite in their way, rip down the flags of wrong - They tell us to salute them or we're going to fall, they glorify the rules when shit ain't real - a biased sense of pride - Think about that at your ten course meal - ain't rich, ain't white, ain't man, no deal - so much for you to hide - You think you can push around and we'll just blindly take it, and even if not you can always use force - we think we know better than you about how to run things and the time has come for you to die off.
Track Name: Shelf Life
We don't want today, what's going on is so lame. Business men in skyscrapers make me fill out papers. There's only one way to live - cryogenically preserved into the next century! Don't pull the plug or we'll thaw,and we don't want to have to pay Johnny Law. Don't wake us until prescription refill, ten times over... We love today - football, prozac and AIDS - doesn't get any better than this! Just keep the immigrants out and our tax budgets low - we'll vote for him for more years. And we don't want IT ALL - we just want more kiddie parks and more malls. Don't underestimate all the power that we have on the state. Gold on TV - that's all we see, through the goggle...
Track Name: Fur Worm
Meter maid, peace officer, French mime, McHamburglar, trailer full of mormons, mail-order bride, Beefaroni doctor, Nurse Lowfat at his side, and we are not gonna be under the mustache of what's on TV. We're experimented Guinea Pig wrecks but we know what we hate and we know it's related to you!
Track Name: Taming the Devil (Los Canadians)
Pick up a penny, wish on a star, don't forget to throw salt over your shoulder - found the saint candle at the supermarket - reading horoscopes, see how far you'll get with this life, Doesn't matter how luck y you are, 'cause nothing can replace the scars. And you don't care how lucky you are - it's all a game and so are you.
Track Name: Cardboard Box (Los Canadians)
What'd you say? Why don't you say it again? What did you say? Now say it again... Doesn't matter how you hurt me, 'cause you won't remember tomorrow. Doesn't matter what you say now.
Track Name: At Iggy's (Los Canadians)
Try to remain unconscious to the voice of consciousness, but sometimes it backfires - sometimes it requires more than I've got. Can't focus my energy on one spot, on one spot...
Track Name: Speed at Robin's (Los Canadians)
I saw you kill yourself today, the weight never gave in but oh, you did - You looked in the mirror only one way, your eyes changed - You didn't see the same face and the trouble behind you. And you say you're alright now, but you know you can't last much longer with that smile on your face, can't hold on too much longer... You see your cure is causing the disease and the trouble behind you. You hold it close, like it's your only love, but you know it's sucked you lifeless, it's touched you numb. It keeps you going, going away, further from your will so that nothing could be real.
