Track Name: An Old Joke of Mine
At this house, in a new town,
A big place in this neighborhood
I always dreamed of
I sat on a porch and watched
The circus of party-goers downstairs
Just watching them as they went
From distant, to cold,
To just plain hostile.

They ran a bus between us,
And separated us,
Things got confusing at this point,
Leaving me with a short anorexic girl
Who's told me for some reason,
Which I can't remember for the hostility,
And says, "come back here."

It's daylight now and I'm
On the outside of a brick structure,
An old Civil War style garage apartment
With no doors, holes ten or eleven inches square
For cannons and things apparently;
I can't get in there,
And talk through these holes,
And see, amazed that the person
Actually fits through them;
It must be a contortionist trick

As I try to figure it out,
Staring at huge wads of knotty stiff canvas
Being pulled and shoved through it,
The person who brought me back there
To tease me about it -
Not being able to fit in the hole -
Went about going through the daily things,
No longer caring that I'm there.

The people demanded the old paint cans
In the basement of Dad's old house;
It was useless garbage, probably dried,
But I just didn't like being bullied.
They could have asked but I said no,
Very polite-like.
It was night, the party-goers back there.
K. and I sat in the room with the piano;
They were all in the yard outside.

Outside the window, I saw them:
Just a good group of clean-living middle-aged
Yuppies, being less and less subtle
About the hostility of their motives,
But as yuppies are,
They had none of their alcohol or drugs.

One of the little girls played,
Running around the tree,
Oblivious.
Maybe she was evil too...
I don't know.

First message

The setting sun cast long shadows
Across the busy city-scape,
All concrete and steel,
With cold wind sneaking in from around the corners
Of each of the tallest buildings -
Structures erected as monuments
To the financial labyrinth
That drives the same crazy bustle every day,
The mad rush that slowly drips off
Every suit and hat in town
Around this time of day like,
Like the rusted leaves falling
Off a majestic oak in September.
"God-damned prepositions,"
He muttered, under his breath.

Track Name: Honkeys & Junkies
Why am I even doing this?
Come on
'Cause this is hilarious!
Come on
Who cares, who cares
Come on
Okay, okay

High tops, vanilla shake and onion rings
I'll take a job, I'll take another thing
And I'm doin' a line and I'm bustin' a rhyme
And I'm up eatin' these burritos and eggrolls

Hey motherfucker it's me in the alley
Behind the Moore Theatre, what's up?
Don't have a seizure from the coke I sold ya
What's up nigga? I told ya

That's what's up, you see me pop the top
And pop the Glock, while I cop the top
And I popped the cop, and I kicked his ass
At the motherfuckin' rest stop, bitch

Too much booze, too much heroin
Takin' dope, shootin' dope up in my butt
And I don't even know what's up, but
I feel like a nut
I feel (undecipherable)

Yeah motherfucker
Yeah west side in the house

Tacos and nachos, I'm blowin' my nose
Because I think I's gots the colds
And I don't even knows, but man
Whatever the money, it folds

Camaros, ah yeah, waxin' the shit at the Elephant Car Wash
Ah, lookin' for bitches on Aurora
Smackin' the shit to Dick's and back

And then I takes a shit on your bitch
Because that's what it is
Like a motherfucker shit

Honkeys and junkies
Honkeys and junkies
And we do the rappers in the song and the wrappers and burritos
And the eggrolls
Eatin' eggrolls
Eatin' eggrolls
Ah yeah
White honkey in effect
Track Name: Asteroids

Ow!!
Track Name: Space Titanium
Thank you for bringing me from the airport, I'm grateful
There you are
Hey there, you're not invited!
Oh, hold it!

Ah, Mizake, welcome home
I brought a guest for you
Wow
Ah
Ha ha ha ha
You're mean, you should have told me that Professor Wagara was your uncle
Ha I couldn't resist making fun
You should be ashamed
By the way, where's Mizake?
It seems that he found a strange piece of metal near Jiyogoso cave

This material can only be space titanium
Space titanium? You mean it's from outer space?

Quake!
Track Name: Black
The only thing that looks strange to me was, um, when we sonicated, we got a much lower and more uniform mean, um, on the laser diffraction unit. Leads me to believe that you, you either have a fair amount of agglomeration going, or we were actually destroying the sample when we sonicated. I guess we need to talk more to figure that out. I hope band practice is going well, I'm an old player from years gone by myself. Talk to you later.
Track Name: Baby, It Can't Wait 'Til Later
Lovely, sweet Jill
At times, I would like to have your head hung above my fireplace like a trophy from a great kill
Proudly placed as a pleasant reminder of how much I long to hunt big game
Then, in the same moment, I realize that I am completely against the innocent slaughter of any living, breathing creature, gentle or deadly
The thought of seeing your head gutted and stuffed in my living room is almost frightening
Not only due to the fact there would be no mess when I sweep out the brains
I can't believe these utterly horrid images I'm having at this moment, what evil demon has possessed me so,
That I may have such putrid thoughts
How can this be my mind at work?
I am a creative individual, and should make graphic stories about slaughter, death and self-mutilation
And these stories should sell well in Japan, if not at the local convenience store
I have an active, vivid imagination
I could... capture young souls
Boys rebelling against adolescence
I could have them bowing at my feet
And sending me whips and chains,
Handcuffs, pokers, shakers, leather, spikes, ropes
Even as - Ooooh -
The thought makes my groin muscles tighten
I feel a strange pulsating vibration
Running throughout my entire body
I'm getting light-headed
I suppose I should stop
When I'm caught in an act
Of utter disgust

You tell us how you like your Cup o' Noodles
Track Name: Elephant Baby

Track Name: The Elevator Tune
Hi this is Dave Wright,
I have a tune for Lowbelly
It's called The Elevator Tune
Do do do do do do dodo do do do do do do
Do do do do do do dodo do do do do do do
That's all

Take a lead
Take a lead from Jeremy
There he is - JR

I guess it's time to mumble in the microphone
My turn
I got nothin' else to say
So I guess I'll give it away
To mister Red Star himself

We got the melody
It's just four tones
Not much of a melody
Hahaha
Bing, bing
La la
La la la la la
Oh fuck

He just handed me the microphone
And I still don't have anything to say
You know, so I'm just kind of mumbling away
Well...
I'm really not exactly sure what to do here right now
So I guess we'll uh, we'll just let it all speak for itself
We'll just let it go on its own
Alright? alright
