WWIII

World War 3 is on, no one knows it
first one who says so — that’s the one who blows it
satellite view on, nobody close it
eleven o’clock news, someone re-told it

World War 3 is on—pretend you don’t know it
secure your smart phone, don’t even show it
you got a real name? time to get an alias
sorry, too late, you just experienced digital failure

Microwave towers regularly miss me
check back in an hour, that’s not my history
I got a life but it’s off the grid
now, no one knows, who I am, what I did

World War Three is on
whose pretending they don’t know it!
persistent image of what was said
gloss lightly over the uninterred dead
take a moment and shake just one hand
that’s all you need to understand

Rubber World

it’s a funny world
have a good time
fun, fun, funny world
have the time of your life
and when you’re finished
when you’re through
remember turn out the lights
and don’t feel blue
cause it’s a funny world
it bounces right along
funny rubber world
it ain’t right, it ain’t wrong

It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world
It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world

If you’re not invited
don’t mind the fuss
get out of the way
or get serious
it’s a hard gig
and it’s easy to fall
so, if you can’t take a joke,
then fuck you all

It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world
It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world

well you might not like it
you might complain
but that doesn’t matter
no one knows your name
people hustle, hustle, hustle, hustle,
try to hang on
but it makes no difference
when there’s nothing to hold onto

It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world
It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world

yeah, it’s a funny world
so have a good time
fun, fun, funny world
have the time of your life
the meter’s running
so make your move
don’t wait for a test
when there’s nothing to prove
but when you’re finished
when you’re through
remember turn out the lights
and don’t be blue

It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world
It’s a rub, rub, rub, rub, rubber world
It’s a rubber world
It’s a rubber world

when nothing remains
then everything’s the same
when nothing remains
then everything’s the same

Perfect Democracy

it’s everything you want
it’s everything you need
ain’t no debutante
things happen here with speed
you got a vote
go out and use it
no one can say
you abuse it
vote once, vote often,
go home and play
what you got off on

33, CD, 8 track, LP
it’s a perfect democracy
45, LP, CD, MP3
it’s a perfect democracy
it’s a perfect democracy

surrounded by signs
who you going to vote for?
your friends want to know
what party do you go for?
someone will judge you
what you play, what you do
you lay down the groove
you got something to prove
the way you dress
the way you move
it’s what you say
it’s what you do

DAT, CD, 8 track, MP3
it’s a perfect democracy
45, LP, CD, MP3
it’s a perfect democracy
it’s a perfect democracy

disco, rap, techno, or blues
people say it doesn’t matter
what you choose
but it makes a difference
when it comes to what you want to say
it really matters how you play

33, CD, LP, MP3
it’s a perfect democracy
45, LP, CD, MP3
it’s a perfect democracy
it’s a perfect democracy

I write like I cum

I write like I cum
I write like I shit
in spurts

I write like I talk
I write like I puke
in blurts

I write with little blue
smurfs
I write like I drink
with burps

I write as I intuit
I write in body fluids
I write because I’m into it

Hollow Earth

Well — I —
stooped, stooped, stooped, stooped, stooped, stooped down
and I looked at what I saw
I saw some pebbles and some dirt
and I saw the earth turning
and it looked pretty good
well, I looked a little closer
at the cracks and the veins
the spots where there was dirt
the spots where nothing remained …

YOW!!

I’m looking through the earth
it isn’t really solid
I’m looking through the earth
Whoops, looks like I’m falling,
I’m looking through the earth
it isn’t really there
I’m looking through the earth
I’m looking through the earth

Well — I — Wonder
is the planet just a bubble?
sharp junk from outer space
could spell – OW! – mega-trouble
I think, think, think about it
every minute, every hour,
what holds it all together
gravity or will-power?

I’m looking through the earth
yeah, it isn’t really solid
I’m looking through the earth
Whoops, looks like I’m falling,
Looking through the earth
it isn’t really there
I’m looking through the earth
I’m looking through the earth

the more I think about it
the more I start to worry
better plant a mess of seeds
get it together in a hurry.
I’ll move out on the ocean
at least water’s always there
hey, what’s this earth commotion?
now you got me really scared.

I’m looking through the earth
yeah, it isn’t really solid
I’m looking through the earth
Whoops, looks like I’m falling,
Looking through the earth
it isn’t really there
I’m looking through the earth
I’m looking through the earth

Sniffy Hits the Front Page

I’m a rat, see?
in a gilded cage
drives me batty
not meant for a life
of mediocrity
fills me with rage
feeding on tidbits
kissed and cuddled
called Sugar Lips

YUUCCCHHH

I gotta get away
I’m so bored
I’d rather be thrown
from the 44th floor
Hey! Whatcha doing?
What did I say?
I didn’t mean it
you can’t treat me this way!

Watch out world!
Sniffy’s being hurled
onto the front page
a big impression
on centre stage
Get his hat and gown
Sniffy’s going to hit the town

What? You’re going to get a cat!
we’ll see about that
call my personal agent
come to an arrangement
spring some sucker from the pound
bring that miserable mutt down
he’ll chew your shoes
slobber around
I swear you’ll miss me
before I hit the ground

Watch out world!
Sniffy’s being hurled
onto the front page
a big impression
on centre stage
Get his hat and gown
Sniffy’s going to hit the town
