Last living souls

Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls

Take a gun
Or how you say
That's no way
To behave

But just as long you need the gear
So sing a song that doesn't sin
It grows
Hey, you know

Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last to get away
To some another day
Or do we know
Well we know
Doesn't seem to be complete
Are we

Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls

Get up, get up, get up, get up....

Cause all out of song
I got it down wrong
I see myself to get
An all-seeing door now
Can you take us in
The part that comin' on
The coldest man doesn't sing your song

We go to the car
I see you walk to the far
And when you get there do you see
You fit the last you need on me

Cause we're the last living souls
We're the last living souls
Yeah we're the last living souls
We're the last living souls

 

Kids With Guns

Kids with guns

 

O green world

O green world
Don't desert me now
Bring me back to fallen town
Where there's someone still alive

Fighting for something new in this
When no one needs the heart of me and I'll
Oh, get out somewhere I've never been before

(Have been before...)

O green world
Don't deserve me now
I'm made of you and you of me
But where are we?
Oh no

Sells to lie
From the darkest stars
Suppose you
Down when you're in fast
Doesn't seem so little to you

I know you now, I know
You know, me too
You know, me too
I hope sex and drugs
Lusting to myself, holy
It feels holy
It feels like you're with your father in the place you love...

 

Dirty Harry

I need a gun to keep myself from harm
The poor people are burning in the sun
But they ain't got a chance
They ain't got a chance
I need a gun
'Cause all I do is dance
'Cause all I do is dance

I need a gun to keep myself from harm
The poor people are burning in the sun
No, they ain't got a chance
They ain't got a chance
I need a gun
'Cause all I do is dance
'Cause all I do is dance

In my backpack
I got my act right
In case you act quite difficult
And yo is so weakin'
With anger and discontent
Some are seeking and searching like me, moi

I'm a peace-loving decoy
Ready for retaliation
I change the whole occasion to a pine box six-under
Impulsive don't ask wild wonder
Orders given to me is
Strike and I'm thunder with lightning fast reflexes
On constant alert from the constant hurt
That seems limitless with no dropping pressure
Seems like everybody's out to test ya
'Til they see you brake
They can't conceal the hate that consumes you
I'm the reason why you flipped your soosa

Chill with your old lady at the tilt
I got a 90 days digit
And I'm filled with guilt
From things that I've seen
Your water's from a bottle
Mine's from a canteen
At night I hear the shots
Ring so I'm a light sleeper
The cost of life,
It seems to get cheaper
Out in the desert
With my street sweeper
The war is over
So said the speaker with the flight suit on
Maybe to him I'm just a pawn
So he can advance
Remember when I used to dance
Man, all I want to do is dance

Dance, dance, dance...

I need a gun to keep myself from harm

 

Feel Good Inc.

Feel Good (x8)

City breaking down on a camel's back
They'll just have to go coz they don't know wack
So all ya fill the streets it's appealing to see
And you won't get undercounted cause you're damn ass free

You got a new horizon it's an ephemeral style
In a melancholy town where we never smile
And all I want to hear is the message beep
My dreams they come a kissin' cause I don't get sleep no

Windmill windmill for the land
Turn forever hand in hand
Take it all there on your stride
It is tickling fallin' down
Love forever love is free
Turn forever you and me
Windmill windmill for the land
Is everybody in

Laughing Gas, these Haz mats
Fast Cat, lining them up like ass cracks
Lay these ponies at the track
It's my chocolate attack
Shoot I'm stepping in hotter this year
Care bear reppin' it harder this year

Watch me as I gravitate hahaha

Yo, we gonna go ghost town
This Motown
With your sound you're in the blink
Going to bite the dust
Can't fight with us
With your sound you kill the inc.

So don't stop get it, get it
Until your Cheddar's heavy
And watch the way I navigate hahaha

Windmill windmill for the land
Turn forever hand in hand
Take it all there on your stride
It is tickling fallin' down
Love forever love is free
Turn forever you and me
Windmill windmill for the land
Is everybody in

Dont stop, get it, get it
We are your captains in it
Steady,
Watch me navigate,
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Dont stop, get it, get it
We are your captains in it
Steady, watch me navigate
Ah ah ah ah ah ah

 

El Mañana

Summer don't know me no more
Eager man, that's all

Summer don't know me
He just let me love in my sea
Cause I do know, Lord
from you that
Just died, yeah

I saw that day
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

Don't stop the buck when it comes
It's the dawn, you'll see

Money won't get there
Ten years passed tonight
You'll flee

If you do that
I'll be some
To find you

I saw that day
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

I saw that day
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

 

Every Plant We Reach Is Dead

I lost my leg like I lost my way
So no loose sounds
Nothing to see me down
How are we going to work this out

Dreams aren't bad, I had turned back
I love the gun
But God only knows it's
Getting hard to see the sun coming through
I love you...
But what are we going to do

Picture on the dreamer
I'll take you deeper
Down to the sleepy glow
Time is a low..
Don't you know
What are we going to do

When you go back
All the second selfless days
You're in love with him
I want to see you again
I love you...
But what are we going to do

 

November Has Come

Slow it down some
No split clown bum
Your old hit sound dumb
Hold it now, crown 'im
Where you found them at
Got 'em 'round town
Coulda drowned in it
Woulda floated bloated
Voted sugar coated
Loaded hip shooter
Draw for the poor
Free coffee at the banks
Hit through the straw
None more for me, thanks
That blanks the raw
That dang sure stank lit
Sank passed the pit for more hardcore prank spit
Crank it on blast
Roll past front street
Blew the whole spot
Like some old ass with skunk meat
These kids is too fast
Juiced off a junk treat
Who could get looser off a crunk or a funk beat?

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know November has come
When it's gone away

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know, November has come
When it's gone away

Baha
Can you dig it like a spigot
My guess is yes you can
Like, can I kick it?
Wicked
Liquor shot
If you happy and you know it
As you clap your hands to the thick snot
Of a poet flowin'
Broke a pen and I'm in cope hymen
Dope or rhymin all worth it then
The Hope Diamond
Required off the blackmarket
Or wire tappin'
Couldn't target a jar of spit
The rapid fire spark lit
Zzzz!
A rapper bug zapper
And it don't matter after if they's a thug or a dapper
Plug yer trap or it's maximum exposure
The beast got family in numbers asking 'em for closure
Aw, send 'em a gun and tell 'em clean it
Then go get the nun who said her son didn't mean it
She wore a filled-in thong
A billabong
And said, nah, fo'realla
The Villain on a Gorilla jawn?

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know November has come
When it's gone away

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know, November has come
When it's gone away

 

All alone

All alone...

The beat's got soul
Deuteronomy

Snatch a piece of my wondering
This did fall like under in
Skid em with two lights
Skid em with boot light
Flamers too light
Where's the waitress
Can't take this really can't finish this
These airs and all these graces
It's my mistake I'll make it
J'd up to the boom now make it
Bounce wiggle bounce wiggle shaking all them things out
Chemical cutthroats 'bout to blow the brain out
Cut to the brain
This ain't no game
I'll show no shame
I'll birth this bane
I'll twist the game
I'll twist the game
I'll push this plane
It's plain as day
Known to what these sayers say
Known to what these doers do
It's you and who and you know where
We's about to take it there
We's about to make it clear
We're happy on we lonesome
The lone drum the beat hot
From start to finish
Ten spoons of spinach
The soul and the spillage
The cup that runneth over
We turn up the 'oh God'

All alone...

Close your eyes and see
When there ain't no light
All you'll ever be
Come and save the night
Coz I don't leave
When the morning comes it doesn't
Seem to say an awful lot to me...

All alone...

 

White Light

White light
White light
White light
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol, white light

White light
White light
White light
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol, white light ...

 

DARE

It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up
It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up
It's DARE

It's DARE

You've got to press it on you
You've just been thinking
That's what you do, baby
Hold it down, DARE

Jump with the moon and move it
Jump back and forth
It feels like you would let yourself work it out

Never did no harm
Never did no harm
It's DARE
It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up
It's coming up, it's coming up
It's DARE

It's DARE

You've got to press it on you
You've just been thinking
That's what you do, baby
Hold it down, DARE

Jump with the moon and move it
Jump back and forth
It feels like you would let yourself work it out

Never did no harm
Never did no harm
It's DARE
It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up
It's coming up, it's coming up
It's DARE
Never did no harm
Never did no harm
It's DARE
It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up
It's coming up, it's coming up
It's DARE

You've got to press it on you
You've just been thinking
That's what you do, baby
Hold it down, DARE

Jump with the moon and move it
Jump back and forth
It feels like you would let yourself work it out

You've got to press it on you
You've just been thinking
That's what you do, baby
Hold it down, DARE

Jump with the moon and move it
Jump back and forth
It feels like you would let yourself work it out

 

Fire Coming Out Of A Monkey's Head

Once upon a time at the foot of a great mountain
There was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived
Their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world
Obscured as it was by great clouds

Here they played out their peaceful lives
Innocent of the litany of excess and violence
That was growing in the world below
To live in harmony with the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough
Then one day Strangefolk arrived in the town
They came in camouflage, hidden behind dark glasses
But no one noticed them: they only saw shadows
You see, without the Truth of the Eyes, the Happyfolk were blind.

Falling out of aeroplanes and hiding out in holes
Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home
Jump back from behind them and shoot them in the head
Now everybody dancing the dance of the dead
The dance of the dead, the dance of the dead

In time, Strangefolk found their way into the high reaches of the mountain
And it was there that they found the caves of unimaginable Sincerity and Beauty
By chance, they stumbled upon the Place Where All Good Souls Come to Rest
The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves above all things
And soon they began to mine the mountain
Its rich seam fueling the chaos of their own world
Meanwhile, down in the town
The Happyfolk slept restlessly their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain
Why was it bringing darkness into their lives
And as the Strangefolk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain, holes began to appear
Bringing with them a cold and bitter wind that chilled the very soul of them up
For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful for
They knew that soon the Monkey would soon stir from its deep sleep
And then came a sound, distant first
It grew into castrophany so immense it could be heard far away in space
There were no screams
There was no time
The mountain called Monkey had spoken
There was only fire
And then, nothing

Oh little town in U.S.A, your time has come to see
There's nothing you believe you want
But where were you when it all came down on me
Did you call me now

 

Don't Get Lost in Heaven

Got off a plane to the countryside
I drove to the mountain and holding the ground
There was crack on the corner and someone dead
And fire coming out of the monkey's head

Don't get lost in heaven
They got locks on the gate
Don't go over the edge
You'll make a big mistake

Put me in a cab to suburbia
I just took a line but I wasn't with you
There was more of it there
When I got back home
But you had left me
You don't know my soul
You're a whore,yeah, you're a whore

Don't get lost in heaven
They got locks on the gate
Don't go over the edge
You'll make a big mistake
Aaaah...
You'll make a big mistake...

 

Demon Days

In demon days, it's cold inside
You don't get nobody, people sigh
It's so bad, lasting far, but love yourself
Hiding in a hole in there
All the glasses are too big
Bring it back, got to hold it back
To let you do that yet you don't want me back
Before it fall down, falling down falling down
Falling out to go far from the sun

Well these demon days are so cold inside
It's so hard to live, and so to survive
You can't even trust the air you breathe
Cause Mother Earth has a soul to leave
When lies become reality
You love yourself because it's easy
Pick yourself up it's a brand new day
So turn yourself round
Don't burn yourself, turn yourself
Turn yourself around to the sun

To the sun, to the sun...
To the sun, to the sun...
