ONE LONG LAZY AFTERNOON Looking out my window, Thinking ‘bout the life I knew. Now I see it quickly fade from view. Then I look around the cluttered charm Of my cocoon. My life is one long lazy afternoon. Another perfect day with no one Knocking at my door. I don’t even listen anymore. Hear the songs of birds outside. It makes me think of June. My life is one long lazy afternoon. Oh, all my friends are gone, But I’ll see them all When things get better. I love the silence of this quiet room. Take me to that special place where I don’t need to hide my face there, no. I love this trip I’m on ‘Cause it goes beyond What makes me better. I had a dream of dancing in the rain. Don’t you worry now, my friend, ‘Cause we will dance again. Until then, I’ll keep myself away from all the news. It doesn’t bring me nothing but the blues. In a world of dissonance, Well, I remain in tune. My life is one long lazy afternoon.

AEROSOL DROPLET PEST CONTROL You got no smell. What’s that all about? You’re gonna go to hell For the things that you shout. If you got no taste, then you’re in for a shock. Spit on my face. It’s so punk rock. You got the dice, Give ‘em a roll. Aerosol droplet pest control. Let's go. You borrow my shoes. Where you going to go? You’re going to a party At an REO. You’re getting back home at the break of dawn. You’re wearing me out with this marathon. You took the trip. So you pay the toll. Aerosol droplet pest control. Let's go. First you act real cute, Like it’s got to be. Then you’re kissing my friends Right in front of me. You’re taking your drink right from the bottle. You better shut it down, take your hand off the throttle. It’s gonna hit you hard, Like a telephone pole. Aerosol droplet pest control. Let's go. Super Spreader Super Spreader Supa supa Super Spreader You’re all my friends!

MAY YOU SUFFER GREATLY May you suffer greatly. May you be ridiculed by your betters. May you not be suffered by fools. May you be forced to follow, to the letter, all of the rules. (May you suffer greatly.) May your lawyers abandon you and your lenders stop taking your calls. May you be susceptible to falls. (May you suffer greatly.) May the rest of your life be an unrelenting and humiliating strip search. May the angels cry out for your head each time you happen to pass a church. (May you suffer greatly.) May Karma cradle you in the palm of her hand and crush you like the insect you are. May you go far. Away. (May you suffer greatly.) Amen.

No Country 03:21
NO COUNTRY No country built on stolen land On the backs of slaves Could ever be great. That flimflam man With the empty hand Had a master plan, And you took the bait. That fascist brawl With the animals At the Capitol Is making me hate. No country built on stolen land Under his command Could ever be free. That virus belching Racist rant Of a President, It terrifies me. How many die In the countryside 'Til it qualifies As genocide? How many more Would be lost before He was out the door? How many died? (I wanna cry.) No country built on stolen land On the backs of slaves Will ever find peace. That ugly stain Will still remain Like a prisoner chain. No chance for release. As the future plans What the world demands It is in your hands To kill the beast. No country built on stolen land On the backs of slaves

Far Too Long 02:34
FAR TOO LONG I been staring at these four walls For far too long. I been wishing for different place Where I can belong. There ain’t nothing but the fading light To be my baby tonight. I been staring at these four walls For far too long. I been eating this same old food For far too long. I could be dining at my favorite joint, But that would be wrong. I keep dreaming of my favorite meal, Something with that spicy appeal. I been eating this same old food For far too long. All I want is a holiday From everything in my routine. I would even do what the faithful say, But that is really not my scene. (That’s mean) I been nursing this day old beer For far too long... My life seems just so far away. I wonder what it wants from me. If I could only hear what the future say, Telling me that what will be (will be). I been living with a worried mind For far too long. I been telling all my lowlife friends That I could be strong. If I can’t find a way to be free, It’s going to be the end of me. ‘Cause I been living with a worried mind For far too long. I been eating this same old food For far too long. I been staring at these four walls For far too long.

You 03:46
YOU You, Standing in the mirror view. I can close my eyes and see you coming through. Time. I thought that we might have more time. But with each day, I find I close my eyes, And, in my mind, I still remember You, Wondering what we’re going to do. Could you believe it when they said your days were few? Me, Struggling to finally see This is how it had to be. It makes me cry. We said goodbye Through a window. Oh, but what I want to say Is, if we had another day, I would tell you that you’re beautiful, And I would take from you All the pain that you went through, But that would only make me pitiful. And you died alone, And they made me stay away, But you had to know That I was there that day. And I want to say This is the time To say that I’m Going back to be What I will be. And I will see What I can do Here without you You

AS THE LIGHTS GO OUT What happens when you die? The people who loved you cry And, in their own way, they say goodbye To you, And then they go on, But one day they’ll be gone, And that is when you die a second time. And I’ll see you in that better place. I’ll see you in that better place. What happens when you die? The people who loved you cry And, in their own way, they say goodbye To you, And then they go on, But one day they’ll be gone, And that is when you die a second time. And I’ll see you in that better place As the lights go out on the human race. I’ll look into your beautiful face As the lights go out on the human race. As the lights go out. I’ll see you in that better place As the lights go out on the human race. I’ll sing to you in outer space As the lights go out on the human race. I’ll give to you what they can’t replace As the lights go out on the human race. I’ll give to you a love embrace As the lights go out on the human race. I’ll give to you my love embrace As the lights go out on the human race. As the lights go out.
