Track Name: The Greatest Love Song
All I need is a catheter and lobotomy
Everything will be clean and clear and clutter-free
Take my hand and we'll go off to the promised land
Tip-toe through the tulips, vacancy is so grand

It's a union made in heaven
Everyone will attend our reception
Consummate with no conception
Our world will be perfection

I'll have a hysterectomy
And we'll live our lives problem-free
No need to think independently
Your vasectomy will make our world complete

It's a union made in heaven
Everyone will attend our reception
Consummate with no conception
Our world will be perfection

We'll talk alike, we'll act alike
We'll never fight
We'll eat the same, dress the same
We are the same

Proverbial monogomy
Ménage à trois - that's not for me
We two are one, it's not for some
But it's all that I need

It's a union made in heaven
Everyone will attend our reception
Consummate with no conception
Our world will be perfection

It's the greatest love song (x7)
It's the greatest, greatest love song
Track Name: Apple Pie
I'm the life of the party, I'm always smiling
On the surface I'm as happy as can be
And I don't watch the news and I don't read the papers
And I don't like chicken soup for the soul

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Cant we all just get along
Everybody, come on

When things get heavy I'll change the subject
And I'll talk about ice cream and teddy bears
Everytime you tell me about your problems
I get rigid and scared and I shut off

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Cant we all just get along
Everybody, come on

I've never been sad
'Cause of lack of emotion I'm very, very glad
I've never been real
'Cause my armour means I never have to feel

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Cant we all just get along
Everybody, come on

I don't dig confrontation, I keep my mouth shut
But I lie to save my own ass
People talk of politics and people talk of war
And I don't know why they're so upset
Uh-uh

Do you wanna share my apple pie?
I don't understand why people cry
Cant we all just get along
Everybody, come on

Everybody, come on
Everybody, come on
Track Name: Habitual Inmate
When I wake I wash my hands, I wash my face
I do it all over again
In the morning I take my pills, I wash my hands
And I panic and do it again

You know I'm a systematic victim
I'm a systematic victim
Uh-huh

In the afternoon I leave my house, I check the door
And I close it and close it again
All I think about is parasites, bacteria and germs
Diseases galore

You know I'm a systematic victim
I'm a systematic victim
Uh-huh

I can't stand still
I can't sit down
I can't stop my world from going 'round
Repetition, reiteration
Periodic rinse and repeat

Before slumber, is the gas off? Is the door locked?
I check it and I check it again
Wash my hands, I brush my teeth, I wash my face
I think I'll do it again

You know I'm a systematic victim
I'm a systematic victim
Uh-huh

I can't stand still
I can't sit down
I can't stop my world from going 'round
Repetition, reiteration
Periodic rinse and repeat

I can't stand still
I can't sit down
I can't stop my world from going 'round
Repetition, reiteration
Periodic rinse and repeat

I can't stand still
I can't sit down
I can't stop my world from going 'round
Repetition, reiteration
Periodic rinse and repeat
Track Name: The Boy Next Door
Just let me be, don't pretend we are friends
I let you hurt, don't call me again
Cold turkey never felt so fine
My thirst for you is running dry

'Cause I've slept around
When you thought I was yours
All that time I was with
I was with the boy next door

The things I've done, no forgiveness now
I know I might end up in hell
Life is short and sweet, they say
But I've been told in the end I'll pay

'Cause I've slept around
When you thought I was yours
All that time I was with
I was with the boy next door

Many times I tried to be true
But you know it's a lie
Endorphins, heartaches
All that shit is a chemical waste on you

'Cause I've slept around
When you thought I was yours
All that time I was with
I was with the boy next door
Track Name: Ode To The Prostitute
Tell me if you want it, if the price is right then I'm here
Come on over here and baby we can cut a deal
Billy I know that you want it
Jimmy I know that you want it
Tommy I know that you want it
Baby I know that you want it

Standing on a corner and I'm gonna give you what you need
Tell me what you want 'cause baby I'm here to please
Billy I know that you want it
Jimmy I know that you want it
Tommy I know that you want it
Baby I know that you want it

I don't want you for your love
You don't want to cook me dinner
50 bucks to kiss on lips
25 and i'll suck your..

Billy I know that you want it
Jimmy I know that you want it
Tommy I know that you want it
Baby I know that you want it

Billy I know that you want it
Jimmy I know that you want it
Tommy I know that you want it
Baby I know that you want it
Track Name: We're All Going To Hell
All you Mormons who like cussing, you are going to hell
All you preachers who like fucking, you are going to hell
Little boys that choke the chicken, you are going to hell
It’s the nature of evolution, the dinosaurs went to hell

Hell hell hell it’s a wonderful place
It’s a place of fire and brimstone

All you Christian politicians, you are going to hell
Magic Jesus apparitions send you to hell
Buddhist monks without god you are going to hell
Those of you dissecting frogs, you are going to hell

Hell hell hell it’s a wonderful place
It’s a place of fire and brimstone

All you Catholics wearing condoms, you are going to hell
All us fatties eating bonbons, we are going to hell
Unbaptized babies learn to limbo, purgatory's hell
And your religion is a gamble and you are going to hell

Hell hell hell it’s a wonderful place
It’s a place of fire and brimstone

Check this shit out
It’s gunna change your life

There once was a man who thought that if he ate all the pages in the bible he could cure most anything
In 1913 he died of a stroke when he tried to eat the book of kings
Track Name: A Venomous Tale
Every thing I said was a lie
But you got to understand
I'm a human and I want you
Yes I need you, just to like me

You think that you've seen
All the bones in my closet
But you got to realize
I am always in disguise
Yes I need you and I want you
Just to like me

Wont you just understand
That the real me is too much for you
Honestly trust me
I will always deceive oh yeah

I know that it seems
That I'm always in your dreams
But its not really true
its all just a coup
because you want me and you need me
just to like you

You laid in my bed
and what lingered in your head
was a venomous tale
of something off the scale
'Cause you want me, you need me
Just to like you

Wont you just understand
That the real me is too much for you
Honestly trust me
I will always deceive oh yeah

You're in love with a fantasy
You'll digress with great appease
Your comfort zone is being invaded
with a shadow thats belated

Wont you just understand
That the real me is too much for you
Honestly trust me
I will always deceive oh yeah
Track Name: Everyone Has A Secret
I lost faith in those around me
I lost faith in those up above
I lost faith in my lovers
I lost faith in myself

Everyone has a secret
Everyone has a past
My one lonely secret
Is gonna be my last

I will carry it with me 'til I lie in my grave
And my body won't rest 'til I bury my shame
And my conscience consumes with the force of a gun
And this burden is heavy, I've nowhere left to run

I've experienced fortune
I've experienced fame
Money makes strange bedfellows
Friendship is the price I pay

I have drank all my sadness
I have smoked all my pain
And there's no-one left to help me
And there's no-one left to blame

I will carry it with me 'til I lie in my grave
And my body won't rest 'til I bury my shame
And my conscience consumes with the force of a gun
And this burden is heavy, I've nowhere left to run

Is it over now?
Lord, tell me how
Time to hide my tracks
Time to cover my back
Time to cover my back
Time to cover my back
Time to cover my back
Time to cover my back

I will carry it with me 'til I lie in my grave
And my body won't rest 'til I bury my shame
And my conscience consumes with the force of a gun
And this burden is heavy, I've nowhere left to run
Track Name: Guns And Dolls
Ever since I was a little girl
I was enamoured with little dolls
Ever since I was a little girl
I was consumed by little guns

Now it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
Now it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls

I can't sleep and I can't eat
With the contemplation of these things
My psychic warned me all about
The complications that these things bring

But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls

Now my parents are so ashamed
And all my friends are so afraid
It vexes me to be this way
But I can't help but stay the same

Intervention didn't help
Where they sent me, I got out
Lord knows that I have tried
To change my ways to change my life

But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
But it's all I think about
Dolls and guns, guns and dolls
Track Name: Moribund
Give me an IV 'cause I'll take it easily
Give me anaesthesia 'cause I'm used to this, you see
Take my kidney 'cause I won't use it today
Take my tonsils 'cause I don't need them anyway

I'm just five years old and I don't know why I'm here
Now I'm six years old and I'm being told that the end is near
Well I'm seven now and they take my blood three times a day
All I wanna do is play

Give me morphine just to take away the pain
I asked the doc how long I've got but he couldn't say
Take my appendix 'cause I think it's going bad
Take my frontal lobe 'cause I think I'm going mad

I am eight now and I just sit and watch the news
Now I'm nine and I'm the only kid with the blues
I am ten now and they take my blood three times a day
All I wanna do is play
Track Name: Memento Mori
Sometimes you think you're untouchable
Just look behind you, you are but a man
Sometimes you think things can't get worse
Just look behind you, you are but a man

So eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead
Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead

The struggle for life you know never ends
So look behind you, you are but a man
Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief
Look behind you, you are but a man

So eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead
Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead

Realise we share the same fate
Understand your own mortality
Our lives are getting shorter every day
Pretty soon there will be no you and me

So eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead
Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead

Sieze the day, you know it's gonna end
Look behind you, you are but a man
Dance footloose across the earth
And look behind you, you are but a man

So eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead
Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow you may be dead
