Killing Time 03:42
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...

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...

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...

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.

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!

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...

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...
