It'swhenit'swrongit'sright

There's many a difference quickly found
Between the different people walking around
But you know it's a strange illusion, chaos and confusion..
When the tree of life is cut down to where
There's nothing left, but a toothpick of despair
So instead of support you - we find it's cheaper to deport you!
I carry it over my shoulder like a lance
A pole with a banner sayin'; T-To-Tolerance!!
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright

Some have more than some will ever get
A farewell to arms; a farewell to legs
You know it'll only get worse, when it stops getting better!.
The smell of a dozen countries cooking
The whole beserk package on end while you're looking
There'll be no red light that stops us when the road is ending
I carry it over my shoulder like a lance
A pole with a banner sayin'; T-To-Tolerance!!
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
Yeah, It'swhenit'swrongit'sright!
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
- It's all wrong; but that's all-right!!

Jacketless In December

I'm freezing
Them I'm letting go
You only hear the silent snow
Running from it; am I getting weak?
But what are friends for
I only remember:
Jacketless in icecold december

In a dream, but wide awake
Now I know my own mistakes
- from without - to within...
Now I'll live with everything

Blame another, but the shame is in your mind
For what is lost and hard to find
The door is closed, to light and truth
What are friends for
Yeah, I remember:
Jacketless in icecold december

In a dream...

I've seen how the world appears
- through a mist of tears
I've been in a very bad mood,
as if I knew...
You always end up empty
- so full of yourself
I can safely say now,
even the oldest trick that exist:
That you can still disappoint a pessimist!

Yeah, in a dream...

Jackie O

Jackie O went ridin'
To the Wounded Knee...
Jackie O was killed
In the battle in 73...
- I was his last friend
And I watched him die...
As the angel grabbed him
- I said: Fly Jackie fly!

Jackie went from pain and misery
To join the warriors
Down at Wounded Knee

I watched the dying Jackie
Untill the morning broke
The distant thunder faded
Of the blue-shirts second stroke...

I knew the fight was over
And we had lost again
Both here and in South Dakota
Where I had lost a friend!!.

Jackie went from pain and misery
To Join the warriors
Down at Wounded Knee

Jihad

From the steamin Mekong delta
To the shores of Tonkin bay
Bombs of yellied gasoline
Is making night as bright as day
And the mogul's hard tank masters
Adore their new grenades
And the D.A.D. find their 9" shells
Are great for border raids

Yeah! I'm superfurious
I've done it again
I reach 50 when I count to 10
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left
For the pilgrims
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left
For the pilgrims

And you can shake your fist at the T.V. set
And you can slam your hand in the table
And you can cry and curse
Through tightlocked teeth
Just as hard as you are able
But you can't run away from trouble
'Coz there ain't no place that far
No fuel left for the pilgrims
Yeah! That's just the way we are

'Coz I'm superfurious I've done it again
I reach 50 when I count to 10
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims

This is tower again, do you read me? You can get the girls & the
videomachine but the fuel you asked for... You cannot have!

What?! Blow me to heaven!!
Jihad I'm getting so mad I'm getting so mad
..Who's mad I'm mad, so mad
Jihad I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims.
Etc.

Jonnie

Hey Jonnie...
Put that gun down
You see we're not alone
You look so square
Standing there, with your greasy
Grey long hair.
I remember growing up together
Sharing all kinds of weather
We were to small kids
In a dusty town...
Your trail was trouble, mine was
Homebound:

That's when you reach for
Your revolver...
That's when you reach for
Your gun...

Well, we heard the stories
On the wire
Death was your only desire
Stayin' away made you hard to
Blame..
But killing my love made me
Stop your game:

That's when I reach for
My revolver...
That's when I reach for
My gun...

Land Of Their Choice

You're now listening to Disneyland After Dark
Hit it boys!

Last Chance To Change

Suppose I've got no direction
But continue I must
I've gotta use the gift
In my possesion
Though the reason is lost
It's like a big bad seed
In my head now
It's like a germ that infects
It's a plant that's taking over
And growing
It's a thing that I must do to exist
I need the attention
Like a cat in a tree
Becoming the monkey
And you wanna be me
Yeah I lost the last chance to change
Yeah I lost the last chance to change

I'm tangled up in indescision
With or without a good plan
Leaping forward without a mission
Into a sea of waving hands
What is the truth
For a tired old joke
If it's handgrenade humour
I'll wash my mouth with soap
Yeah I lost the last chance to change
We lost the last chance to change

Last Mango In Paris

When I'm wrong I admit it
When I'm right I shut up..
But, if you're hairless with apes
You get to mop the mess up
U do me no justice
U can't sentence or judge me
I know u can't grade me (oh no)
Change is pain

So here we go:
Yeah, yeah, yeah
What a show
I won't bossanova my way outa this
No no no
What a blow
I won't bossanova my way outa this
Hey-he-yh-ey
This, I know: I won't bossanova my way outa this
It feels good to be careless
Last mango in Paris
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I've fooled everyone completely
Everyone, except you..
And maybe a few others
Yeah, what can a fool do?..
I got clothes in my wardrobe
They'll make me feel allright
I was aiming to please
'Coz you see... Yeah
There's just a few of us..

Laugh 'n' A 1/2

I learned politeness on my mother's knee..
I learned by uprightness my number of friends
Should increase...
- When I think about the things I've done...
I laugh out loud to noone ...
- Yeah, to noone..
- 'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see
When I try to open up my heart
There's something inside me'n'I know it's good...
- But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- But I became honest Mr. Mistaken
In spite of the curves my smile was makin'...
Bumpers and kickers in one big stream
I grew up in a life size pinball machine!
Yeah! - They're mean!.
'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see
When I try to open up my heart...
There's something inside me'n'I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good...
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- I tried to fill some silence -
'Coz the silence feels so long..
- I knew the ice was gettin' thinner
But I kept skating on!..
My mother threw me into this world as a winner
- But by the light of the yellow beer
They tell the jokes I'll never get to hear!!
- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2.
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2..
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2...
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2....

Laugh and a ½

Lawrence of Suburbia

Wide eyed
Open mouthed
Blank faced
Low clouds
Long walk
Up from hell
But I came back
Back unbent
What it means
Is that I'm good
That much
Is understood
But all in the room
Is dark because
Life is no longer what it was

Lawrence of Suburbia
Real life is murder
Wake up from Utopia
On it again
All aboard the moneytrain

Everyday
As a rule
I'm distant
I'm cool
Not the same
As before
I've folded up suicide
In four
But this dirty sun
Shining down
Pierce the dark
And the sound
All you'll see
Is a tightlipped smile
On a scared little man
As the train runs wild...

Lawrence of....
