Track Name: Aggressively Stupid
I’m aggressively stupid
I’m progressively dumb
With my backward pride
All jammed inside
I’m really quite numb
Won’t see me fret it
Because I just don’t get it

Foul is fair, and fair doesn’t care
But he only wants the home he knew
Wants to drive out the invader, too
But he just won’t get it

I’m aggressively stupid

Debbie called
Now her brain has stalled
And she tells me vapid bullshit is good
She’s the human Access Hollywood
Oh fuck that
No, I just don’t get it

I’m aggressively stupid
I’m progressively dumb
With my backward pride
All jammed inside
I’m really quite numb
Won’t see me fret it
Because I just won’t get it

And when the stars come out tonight
I’ll be there, too
I see no happy ending
We’ll get no happy end
I see no happy ending for you with me

Pop pop pop
And you like it, and you like it well
Pop pop pop
And I only want the free ride
Pop pop pop
And you like it, yes you like it well
Pop pop pop
Always turning in a whirlpool
Pop pop pop
And you like it, yes you like it well
Pop pop pop
And I only want to hear right

Foul is fair and fair doesn’t care
But I care
Track Name: Calling It Off
We took you uptown
We took you down to the sea
Into dusky places
You’d never find without me
But every little thing gets you down
Yeah every little thing gets you down
Now all I want is
To cut this off painfully

Someday when you’re happy
Without drugs to play
Your magic’s poor
And you loved this most
So you’ll be at my door
But please go away!

From trust abusing
A friend I’m losing I see
It’s pure confusion
A heart contusion in me
But every little thing drags you down
Yeah every little thing drags you down
Now all I want is
To sever this fatally

Dizzy in the darkness
Stumbling my way
You’re rolling in
A head of green
Our own Napoleon
Oh just go away!

And I know you liked it
Until you spiked it
Eating this up voraciously
Now you’re always moody
And distant and broody
Making me wait so patiently
Halting this train so passively
You’re breaking this back subversively
Well you lied to the rest
So now you’ve lied to me
Track Name: Cruise Elroy
I’m cruising round and round and round your street
I’m cruising around and around and around your beat
And I don’t want to say what you know is true
You feel me creeping up to you
You can run, you can hide, but unless I’m blue
I’m catching up to you

Just like everybody has to wait in line
I will starve until it’s my time
I’m in a blaze on your final maze
But I know
Yes, I know
I’m catching up to you!

It’s a dark world
So I’d rather be light
It’s a hard world
So I try not to fight
It’s a cold world
Maybe you have found that, too

It’s a dark world when I’ve nothing to prove
It’s a hard world when you’ve nothing to lose
It’s a cold world here
Maybe you have found that, too
I’ll stick with you
Track Name: Your Celibate Life
Counting time in the backseat of my mind
That’s no place I’d like to go
But we can ditch this holiday
Once we find a place to play
They’ll never get you anyway

You don’t need my love
You don’t need my love
You just need a pretty girl’s today
You don’t need my love
You don’t need my love
You just need a pretty girl

Collecting fears
Or whatever seems to fill up your years
That’s no place I’d like to go
And if you’re sleeping like a priest
You should pick a God at least
For heavy lifting when you wake

You don’t need my love
You don’t need my love

You just need a pretty girl today
Mold it into shape
Fix your great escape
You just need a pretty girl

And mother wants to know
Where does his father always seem to go?
Oh there’s no way

There’s no way
That I’ll ever show my face today
And there’s no place I want to go
But if we find our place to play
Then we won’t need this holiday
They’ll never get you anyway
And everybody knows…
Track Name: Poison Condition
Everybody’s got a hungry heart
But nobody ever knows when it’ll start
I can take what you send my way
But this deep black hole will make an Atheist pray
And I don’t want to realize
That my own blood won’t sympathize
I’ve had a hundred or more consultations
I can’t get closer to an explanation

I’ve got a poison condition
This stabbing in my head
I’ve got an open infection
I could be dead

Everybody’s got the will to take
But nobody knows quite where it’ll break
And I can see what I mean to them
A handshake, a buck, and a “hey, good luck”

Charm and beauty
And simple joys
I can’t feel it
I don’t know why

Stolen evenings laced with doubt
Because my own body won’t help me out
And where’re the magical medications
To deal with these vanishing expectations

I’ve got a poison condition
This stabbing in my head
I’ve got an open infection
I could be dead

And everybody should know…

Charm and beauty
And simple joys
I can feel them getting further
Caring voices
All turned to noise
I can’t feel them
I don’t know why

I’ve got a poison condition
This stabbing in my head
I’ve got an open infection
I could be dead

I’ve got a poison condition
I could be dead
