Track Name: Killing Time
Killin' Time

I start to think
I start to sway
A cup o' mud
At the diner
Just might be
The way.
From the day
He is born
'Till the day
He dies
Man's main purpose
Is just to kill time.

Tryin' to kill some time, Babe
Tryin' to kill some time, oh yeah
Tryin' to kill some time, babe
Tryin' to kill some time, oh yeah

After all myths
And illusions
Have been shattered
We may well find
That nothin' ever mattered
From the day he is born
'Till the day he dies
Lordy, man's main purpose
Is just to kill time.

Tryin' to kill some time
Tryin' to kill some time, oh yeah...
Track Name: The Big Break
The Big Break

No one is satisfied
Everyone got an alibi
And all I see & hear
Are compounded sighs
"Oh, how different
Things could have been
If I could do it all over
Again!"
No one is satisfied
Everyone got an alibi

Waitin' for the Big Break
Waitin' for the Big Break
No, no more Heart Ache
No more past Mistake,
Heart Ache, Back Break
Retake...

We got the American Dream
A foolish lottery scene
All the wrong choices
And past regrets
Well I'll just make one more
One more big bet
All for the Big Break
And get set straight

For the Big Break
Waitin' for that Big Break
No, no more Heart Ache
No more past mistake
Heart Ache, Back Break
Retake...
Track Name: White Man's World
White Man's World

Well it's a White man's world
'Said it's a white man's world
And she's a white man's girl
In a white man's world
She said, 'I don't understand
What you're talkin' about'
She said, 'I don't understand
Where you're comin' from.'
'Said you're a 'White man's girl
In a white man's world'
'Said you're a white man's girl
In a white man's world.'

It's a White man's world
Yeah it's a white man's world
Said it's a white man's world
Yeah, it's a white man's world
And she's a white man's girl
In a white man's world.

She's a white man's girl
Said she's a white man's girl
Yeah she's a white man's girl
Oh she's a white man't girl
In a white man's world
She's a white man's girl

Give it to her white man...
Track Name: Shack in the Sky
Shack in the Sky

Amazin' Grace intro...

Goin' up to heaven
To that shack in the sky
Oh, we goin' up to heaven
To that shack in the sky
It won't be long now
B'fore we all gone and died
It won't be long now
B'fore we all gone and died
And when we get there
We'll eat that fine possum pie
Oh, and when we get there
We'll eat that fine possum pie.

Goin' up to heaven
To that shack in the sky
We goin' up to heaven
To that shack in the sky
They'll open up the gates
Babe for you and I
You know they'll open up the gates
Baby fuckin' wide
And when we get there
We'll eat that fine possum pie
And when we get there
We'll eat that fine possum pie.
Track Name: My Mother's Basement
My Mother's Basement

Here I am age 23
No place I'd rather be
It's dark and damp
But I don't mind
All nite long
With my tv.

And I'm living
In my mother's basement
I'm living
In my mother's basement
I'm living
In my mother's basement
All alone,
All alone.


I Get the paper
Delivered every week
I watch the world
Through my tv
Never dare
Tread the outside
Oh, out there
No place to hide.

And I'm living
In my mother's basement
I'm living
In my mother's basement
I'm living
In my mother's basement
All alone, all alone...

And I'm rotting
In my mother's basement
I'm rotting
In my mother's basement
I'm rotting
In my mother's basement
All alone
All alone...
Track Name: I'm Really Not This Way
I'm Really Not This Way

Do you have a cigarette
I haven't had on all day
Do you have a cigarette
I haven't had one all day
'From out of town
Lost my money
I'm really not this way.

Could you please buy me
A glass of beer
I'd really like so much to stay
Could you please buy me
A glass of beer
I'd really like so much to stay
From out of town
Lost my money
I'm really not this way.
Track Name: The Ballad of Joseph Stalin
Ballad of Joseph Stalin

He was born of Georgian birth
And he rose to see his country's worth
From the priesthood to the 5 year plan
No one escaped his concentration camps.
Called a tyrant and a man of fear
Evil purges
No on got near
But I knew different
Oh, I knew the man
Knew him dearly
As so few can.

Joseph Stalin
Joseph Stalin

Well, I said 'Hey Joe- where ya goin'
With that gun in your hand?'
I said 'Hey Joe- where ya goin'
With that gun in your hand?'
He said 'I'm gonna shoot
I'm gonna shoot that bourgeoisie
Yeah, I'm gonna shoot
Gonna shoot that bourgeoisie
Lord, I'm gonna bring 'em
Right on down to their Goddam knees!
Yeah, I'm gonna bring 'em
Right on down to their Goddam knees!

Hey Joe!
Hey Joe!
Track Name: Waiting for the Bottom
Waiting for the Bottom

We're just waiting for the bottom
To fall out, to fall out
We're just waiting for the bottom
To fall out, to fall out...

See the man who looks half dead
Scrapin' out the garbage can
His wheel barrow full of cash
Won't buy him a loaf of bread
And the girl with the red dress on
Will sell her body for a cigarette.
I feel it comin'
It won't be long
Which is why I sing this song--

We're just waiting for the bottom
To fall out, to fall out
We're just waiting for the bottom
To fall out, to fall out...
Track Name: Grovel (for your crumbs of happiness)
Grovel (for your crumbs of happiness)

Get up off your feet
And get down on your knees
Get up off your feet
And get down on your knees
Put you face down to the floor
And grovel for ever more.

Grovel for your crumbs of happiness
Grovel for your crumbs of happiness
You're gonna grovel
You're gonna grovel
Until you die.

Grovel your hips
And grovel your tits
Grovel your hips
And grovel your tits
You're gonna grovel
'Till it hurts
And then eat some fuckin' dirt.

Grovel for your crumbs of happiness...
