Track Name: Embrace the Bomb
I'm like Peter Pan
I've got a nuclear tan
and my shadow's on the wall

I'm radiating!

it was a toxic cloud
all my hair fell out
the Geiger's off the charts

I'm radiating!

radiating!

my teeth are aglow
but my smile's intact alright
there's an ashen snow
and my skin's fluorescent white

it's the fallout
of that I've no doubt
and I freaked out
until I found out
that it makes me whole

I can't help but feel alright
feel alright

and if you ever wanna become part of it
you gotta love the bomb
don't try and stop it
embrace the very thought of it
welcome destruction
and the light
it brings elevation
on chemical wings
feel better than you've felt in years
you've nothing to fear

be like Peter Pan
with a nuclear tan
your shadow on the wall

breathe the toxic cloud
let your hair fall out
the Geiger off the charts

be radioactive!
Track Name: Green Water
the smell of ghosts
a putrid stench
like a million-year-old
sacred tome
set on fire
ashes sprinkled on a pile
of rotting leaves
set in water
green water
green water
rife with cholera

and the children drink
from the dirty well
tiny mouths are wet
with the taste of hell
and green water
oh, green water

and the pipeline runs underground
to your sink
and you drink
and it stings
have you ever stopped to think?
that Satan lives in mountains and in fountains

the smell of ghosts
a putrid stench
like a million-year-old
sacred tome
Track Name: Rabbits
a rabbit with a human brain
is a rabbit with a greater strain
of DNA
than a rabbit with a rabbit brain
any animal really

and if a human is an animal
with thumbs that are opposable
then people are rabbits too
with bigger bodies
and smaller ears

and if brains ran on gasoline
then oil men would be as creative as Eisenstein
and dreams would be of polystyrenes
and steel beams

and if hearts ran on kerosene
then oil men would be as loved as Valentine
oh, I don't know if I win or lose
if my dreams come true

we wear suits
searching for new recruits
communication is hard
when biologically mute
as morally superior
soldiers of Christ
forming opinions with mice
so don't ask their advice

and I know what you're thinking
hey, what is the harm?
if a bunch of rabbits
wanna get away from the farm
but the lake is man-made
and the baptism's fake
there are rabbits at the wake
sad psychological states

the water ship is down
it's a blood flood without sound
RoboCop ain't around
keep your eyes on the money
farmer's philosophies are funny
so don't trust bunnies

a rabbit with a human brain
is a rabbit with a greater strain
of DNA
than a rabbit with a rabbit brain
any animal really

and if oil men are animals
with thumbs that are opposable
those people are rabbits too
with deeper pockets
and larger bills
Track Name: Rebel Clones
she's gonna be a doctor, so easy to see
she's gonna have a house, investing with a spouse
you wanna have, wanna have, you can have
i want to have 2 maybe 3, have
MUTANT KIDS, MUTANT KIDS

learning carpentry scars carving it's true
lost the strong left arm, gave the right to charity
you wanna own, you wanna own? you can own
i wanna own 3 maybe 4, OWN YOUR OWN

REBEL CLONES, REBEL CLONES

OWN

REBEL CLONES, REBEL CLONES

ONE OF US, ONE OF US, WE ACCEPT YOU
ONE OF US, ONE OF US, WE ACCEPT YOU
ONE OF US, ONE OF US, WE ACCEPT YOU
ONE OF US, ONE OF US, WE ACCEPT YOU

REBEL CLONES, REBEL CLONES
Track Name: Living Tumor
alarm sounds like a warning
had early appointments that morning
I cut myself while shaving
and blood ran down the sink

ohhh, the highway was packed
ohhh, because of a crash

now tell me the problem with it
lay down and show me your stomach
you think it is malignant?
I think it’s something worse

it’s moving with a rolling motion
it’s dancing to a random rhythm

it went up, up
down, down
doin’ the mess around
growin’ arms as he’s growin’ moribund

a living tumor with human features
two feet tall and having seizures

oh my God, I grabbed a hammer
I swung at its formless head
it dodged with a graceful manner
oh God, I’ll bash the patient instead

I lined my hammer to his throbbing skull
I screamed don’t you dare move one single muscle

it went up, up
down, down
brains we’re all around
no more movement, not another sound

blood all over - I dropped my hammer
I better run ‘cause it could recover
Track Name: Patchwork Girlfriend
again I'm alone
it's a steady circuit
of wires crossed
and fires

then I made you
electricity
breathed life
to my desires

be my Frankenstein's bride
you're alive!
you're alive!
you'll be my
patchwork girlfriend

you were built
of a thousand loves
before you
be for me

stitched with care
from your toes to your hair
you'll be there for me

be my Frankenstein's bride
you're alive!
you're alive!
you'll be my patchwork girlfriend

you were made for me

I love my girlfriend
her name is Heather
I'll always love her
we're great together

I need my girlfriend
programmed to love me
programmed to need me
she is so lovely

I made my girlfriend
she makes spaghetti
all my friends like her
even Luke Bremer

I love my girlfriend
there is no model
no model like her
I think I'll give her a ring

you were made for me
Track Name: Punks in Space
space punks
punks in space
Track Name: Global Warning
there's a song they sing
with so many tones
it'll make you blind

and if you listen long enough
you'll surely lose your mind

it's in a secret sanctuary
deep beneath the earth

it's what makes the waves
and shakes and quakes
the plates of the earth

and we can't let it get much louder

our ears will bleed
and our legs start to quiver
as they buckle under us
we'll fall down
face to the earth

it's a catchy infection

can you hear it now?
it cuts through all the talk
and all the whirring noise

it drowns out the laughter
of little girls
and little boys

it gives me such a tingle
to my bones
I'm cold as snow

and I know
it'll go on
until we slow our quick tempo

and we can't let it get much faster
we'll pump our arms
'til they're locked to our sides
hanging limp
and we'll wince in pain
knowing we're the ones to blame

and now that I've got your attention
there's something I think we need to discuss
and that's what do you hear
when you're near
to the ground
ears to earth's pulse?
Track Name: World of Birds
everywhere I look
they peek down from electric lines
their beady greedy eyes
their lips the color of fire

it seems to me their beaks are longer
their wingspans greater
talons stronger
we're in for an avian attack
if we don't back off
from the sky

we've crammed the airspace
with planes and windmills and signs
and they perch, poised
to pick us off like flies

it seems to me their hunger's stronger
their taste for human flesh
long dormant
their dinosaur instinct
and their raptor teeth
will rip us apart

a congress of eagles!
a parliament of owls!
fluorescent flamingos!

a world of birds

a curious people!
with an itch to the stars!
no place in this bird world
but a taste in their jaws

it seems to me it's time
to cut and run
we can't wait 'til things just bottom out
it's not a winning hand
and if we don't back off
and if we don't start now
we'll lose ourselves
to the sky
