I traded my things for a tape machine cause a tape machine will never fail me I traded my friends for a tape machine cause a tape machine will never leave me

Songs only come in the early morning Zappa dreams and global warming I trip through the day and waste my thoughts at night My borrowed gags and my useless insights I used to have vision I used to see just right I used to know what word to rhyme with night But now I question myself And I fear for my health And paranoia's not just a theme anymore It's all around me You'd probably think I'm boring but this whole place has got me snoring I sip through the day and I drink at night My useless dreams and my failing sight I used to have vision I used to see just right I used to know what word to rhyme with night But now I question myself and I fear for my health And paranoia's not just a theme anymore It's all around me

It feels just like the summer of 2069 It feels like summer time It's time for that summer fashion the girls wear sunglasses too big for their face It feels like the end of the human race Shark attack Main event Billboard Top 20 amazement It feels just like the summer of 2079 It really does this time It's time for that summer fashion Leather and spikes don't go good with water Anarchy is making summer hotter Shark attack Main event Billboard Top 20 amazement It feels just like the summer of 2089 It feels like it's not mine It's time for that summer fashion Hair product and makeup running down your face It feels like I'm out of place Shark attack Main event Billboard Top 20 amazement It feels just like the summer of 2099 It feels like I've been here before It's time for that summer fashion The kids don't know what to wear in the rain They try to be different but they all look the same Shark attack Main event Billboard Top 20 amazement

Hey John Lennon Imagine that there is no heaven Is it all pretend? Or am I talking right to you? Hey John Lennon Six plus one is seven The number of the God Does he get along with you? Hey John Lennon If there ain't no heaven what did all those hit songs ever do for you? Hey John Lennon Answer these thoughts to heaven Did imagining no heaven ever frighten you? Cause it frightens me like I can't explain It's easy if you try but it's hard to forget And there are plenty of things I could've done that I can no longer do And I find it hard to be me entire when the world is always on fire You may say I'm a disbeliever But I'm not the only one I'm never gonna see the day when the world is one

My brain said "no" but your body said "yes" What should I do I've got a feeling for you but I guess I guess Your mouth said "no" but your eyes said "yes" I wish your head would listen to those legs and just say "yes" Why don't you just say "yes"? I know people gotta move around in the city When all I want to do is think of country matters I guess I just wasn't made for the city I guess it doesn't really matter My thoughts go wild when I see you smile I get all these feelings like I don't know what to do I guess I'm just lonely I guess it's just lonely But my brain is in pain It feels like my heart But I know that it starts right in my brain Ophelia don't you know what you mean to me?

I'm the rock and roller that you can take home to mother Don't have to take me undercover when we go to meet your mother Cause I'm not all those nasty things that maybe I'm supposed to be I'm not all those nasty things Sorry to disappoint you I'm a Bethoven roller over so tell Tchaikovsky the news I'm a Bethoven roller over so you better get out yer blues

I can't think straight my school work's down the drain just like David Bowie I'm in high school again I see you in the hallway kissing your boyfriend Wish I could be him but I'm much too nervous After school I pick up my guitar and play it with my best friend He's playing drums again just me and him except when he's in detention I never get into trouble Maybe I should get into trouble Don't you know dear that I'm right here? And I'd do anything to get you right here But I don't do anything but play guitar with my best friend And listen to CDs alone in my room again After that I pick up my guitar and play it in my room again I'm writing hip tunes but nobody will listen And I try to be Frank Black every now and then cause he's my favorite

I've got you on my brain it's a little sore Feels like it'll rain like it's done before On other days when I get headaches On other days like today Do you think there's a change over time? Or does it just add up to a whine? Can you see the patterns in the sky before they slowly drift by? I wrote this song a dozen times before and it feels the same it doesn't feel like more Than the last time that I used that rhyme More than the last time Do you think there's a change over time? Or does it just add up to a whine? Can you see the patterns in the sky before they slowly drift by?

They say they're gonna be big stars bright But I say, yeah, yeah right

Why do people want to fly when there's nothing in the sky but droplets of water and blue? It doesn't seem like much to do They all want to fly Tell me where will they fly to? Dumb angel

You know you used to walk on water but now you just watch the Jesus fish show Yeah you used to walk on water back before you had a place to go And it spins like it's always spun Making day and night with the moon Its sunny days and its rainy afternoons And the world goes on its lonely way Wondering why it can never turn Anywhere but where it's always gone in perfect rotation around the sun It's palindrome pop You tried it once and now you can't stop Pop palindrome pop It's palindrome pop You tried it once and now you can't stop So the apple worm can have a tasty treat The apple worm on the apple tree

Only little shits can dye their hair pink and get away with it Only little shits can be punk and rebel against their parents Only little shits can afford to not work Only shits can be anarchists Well they don't know what they want and they don't know how to get it They're gonna destroy. Oh boy Somebody better call their parents And tell them they better quit it

I wish I was a fool so I could fall in love I wish I was a fool so I could fall in love I wish I was Dali so I could be drugs I wish I was Salvador Dali so I could be drugs

I wanted to be an electronic bee I wanted to buzz but that's not enough I don't know what it is to be old I still feel like a kid but everyone I know grew big And I woke up one day in the driver's seat and I said, dad what's happening to me? What's happening to me? I wanted to go but I stayed for the whole show and I felt sick Sick to my stomach Cause it didn't do anything for me It used to do something for me But they are humans up on the stage And I wanna be a God

I saw the kids knock Jesus Christ and they thought they were wise But they didn't find reason They found a chemical solution They had a good time

I'm surrounded by potheads but it isn't anything I'm surrounded by alcoholics but it isn't anything No peace No love No ambition Just drugs and sex and ammunition Is that really how the world is? Planes and trains are blowing up and they say they've got the answer But if peace and love could blow things up would things be any better? As long as the world turns Someone's gonna wanna watch it burn Is that really how the world is?

There's people taking pictures every second of the day Uploading their pictures online everyday But what will it get them when they're gone? All of their pictures reminding no one of the times they used to have Is life really that bad? There's people carrying cameras everywhere they go Carrying their cameras like they need them to remember But what will it get them when they're gone? Instead of ending up in an album or a pawn shop They will be deleted
20.
I want the kind of life where people see me on the street And they often ask me if I'm really who I am I want the kind of life where people see me on TV And they recognize me And they either admire me or they despise me But it's a long way to fame I was only fifteen and I wanted a show I knew everyone would go And they said how about a Tuesday or Wednesday? But I wanted Saturday I knew it wouldn't be long before the producers would come give me a record deal They'd wanna know where I was from They'd wanna know I'd say Dayton Ohio Cause they'd wanna know But it's a long way to fame
21.
I could try to trick you with my wit Say even the heavens aren't fit for our love But instead I just sit cause I can't lie about that stuff I could tell you you're my reason to live that I'll never take and always give But instead I just sit because I can't tell a lie I could say we will live forever but we die just the same as all the priests, the soldiers, and the politicians in their ashes, their pyres, and on their missions And the fires grow and they can't stop it And nobody knows who started it They're dying Their funeral pyres are burning They don't try and the fire gets bigger They don't try and the bombs get bigger They don't try everything gets worse They don't try and they end up in a hearse Like me and you We're gonna die too

I want to be like them They were important I want to be like them I want to be important They did something that was different What they done nobody did before 1 2 3 4 If I was a cloud I would be tired I'd be tired all the time I want to be youthful but I know I'll get old Don't nobody like them when they're old How can I play like them when I see what will happen? Don't want to be like them now Want to be like them then Forever If I was a fool I would be tired I'd be tired all the time
