Out of Sight

Out of my face
I don't know your name
As time goes by
You're the same

The last time that you saw me
I didn't even care
The next time that I saw you
It was me who stood and stared

I'm out of sight
You're out of mind
I'm out of sight
You're out of mind

Hangin' in the bar
Loud rockin' noise
You have a Chevy
I guess it's your choice

You really thought you had me
Thought you put me in my place
You were so cool in high school
But now I'm in your face

I'm out of sight
You're out of mind
I'm out of sight
You're out of mind

You tell me you got a wife
I heard she's fat
You got a kid
And I got a cat

You really thought you had me
Thought you put me in my place
You were so cool in high school
But now I'm in your face

I'm out of sight
You're out of mind
I'm out of sight
You're out of mind

Up Yours

Up yours
Stop your whine
Feelin' swell
And I'm doin' fine

Yeah fuck your suicide
It's all bullshit 'cause I tried
And it really don't impress me all that much

Up yours
What you find
Sit right down
I got time

And you say here comes the end
And you haven't got a friend
And I'm standing here just screaming at the wall

Up yours
Stop your whine
Whatta ya got
I got mine

And you shake your stupid head
And you wish that you were dead
And I swear sometimes you're happier than me

And you know it's hard to be
All the things you want me to be
And you go and make it hard on me
But I swear that anything you could be I could be can't you see

Up yours
Got no mind
That's too bad
You got time

Yeah, fuck your silly game
'Cause it's driving me insane
And it really doesn't matter much to me

No Way Out

(Robby's vocals in left, Johnny's on the right. Tough to figure out!)

I've been around...And I realize it's always the same
All the time...And I realize it's all been unchanged
What I find...And you realize there's no one home
There's no way out...When you realize you're all alone

Some say, there's no way out
Here today, there's no way out

Every time I'm walking down by Delaware Park
You rarely hold my hand when it's after dark
And all of the places that we go and the things that we have seen
????????

There's no way out
There's no way out

Some say...And you realized that time goes by
??????...And you realized you're still alive
Alive today...And you realize you're not gonna die
??????...And you realize the sun goes by

Some say, there's no way out
Here today, there's no way out

Every time I come a knockin' at your door
You tell me to turn away, pal you're to poor
I ain't a rich boy, I've heard about all that
All the places that I go it's ching ching ching

There's no way out
There's no way out

And I realize it's always the same
And I realize it's all been unchanged
And you realize there's no one home
When you realize you're all alone

(Robby's screaming other indecipherable words!)

Every time I'm waiting for you in the rain
My mom says our love is sunk in a God damn vein
I stand around and I think it's gonna work
But you look at me like I'm a jerk, oh!

There's no way out
There's no way out
There's no way out
There's no way out

7th of Last Month

(No words to this excellent instrumental)

Love Dolls

I don't wanna lie around with this feeling anymore
Every time you push me you just push me out the door
And I don't wanna stand up, when I'm by your side
For you to make your silly mind, instead you won't

Laughing love doll
Boy, you're so proud
Love is sold out

Every time I look into your sad, pathetic face
I don't even wanna restore your faith in the human race
And I don't wanna stand up, around no more
For you to walk right out, walk right out, walk out the door

Laughing love doll
Boy, you're so proud
Love is sold out

Laughing love doll
Boy, you're so proud
Love is sold out

Sex Maggot

Well I was hangin' around the railway station
My mind was insane from total degradation
Little boy blue was a tootin' his horn now
Scared those cows right out of the door now

I hear you screaming but you can't come in
Cause I know, that you're just a sex maggot!

Mommy and daddy used to play this game now
Told me boys and girls are really all the same now
I don't know the difference at the age of 21
Who's telling me, I don't like anyone, hah!

I hear you screaming but you can't come in
Cause I know, that you're just a sex maggot!

I hear you screaming but you can't be found
Cause I know, that you're just a sex maggot!

Down on the Corner

Early on the evening, just about suppertime
Over by the courthouse, they're startin' to unwind
Poor kids on the corner tryin' to bring you up
Willie picks a tune out and he knows they gonna start

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

Johnny hits the washboard, people just gotta smile
Robby thumbs a gut-bass and solos for a while
Poor boy brings the rhythm on his kalamazoo
And Willie goes into a dance doubles on kazoo, Hey!

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

You don't need a penny just to hang around
But if you got a nickel won't ya lay your money down
Over on the corner there's a happy noise
People come from all around to watch the magic boy

Down on the corner
Out in the street
Willie and the Poor Boys are playin'
Bring a nickel tap your feet

(repeat and fade)

Had Enough

If I leave today, don't know where to go that I can stay
I know what I need, but I won't follow, I can't lead

And when I stood there and I felt November chill
You crushed my heart, and I really lost my will
You think you understand the way it made me feel
I started to choke on you, cause I know what you fear

Cause I've had enough, and I don't really need it
Had enough, and I don't really feel it
Had enough, but you really can't see it
But you'll see it for the first time in your life

If you had a brain, you'd be smart enough to change
Watch yourself, the thoughts of you plague no one else

And I stood there and I felt November chill
You broke my heart, and I really lost my will
You try to understand the way you make me feel
I started to choke on you, cause I know what you fear

Cause I've had enough, and I don't really need it
Had enough, and I don't really feel it
Had enough, but you really can't see it
But you'll see it for the first time in your life

Cause I've had enough, and I don't really need it
Had enough, and I don't really feel it
Had enough, but you really can't see it
But you'll see it for the first time in your life

Cause I've had enough, and I don't really need it
Had enough, and I don't really feel it
Had enough, but you really can't see it
But you'll see it for the first time in your life

Road to Salinas

Do you think it'd be okay if you're willing to let me go
Would lay me to die and try to learn what you don't know
I don't know why I drive behind the wheel
Sun's the sky, and I was

On the road to salinas
Down the road I thought could free us
Ordinary dreams would go, and I would always get back home

Took the time inside to find the boy inside my brain
Someone waited out on him and was trying to get away
I don't know why I feel the way I feel
Sun's in the sky, and I was

On the road to salinas
Down the road I thought could free us
Ordinary dreams would go, and I would always get back home

See myself in someone else, and I just don't know why
When I lay my head to sleep I lay awake and cry
I don't know why I drive behind the wheel
Sun's in the sky, and I was

On the road to salinas
Down the road I thought could free us
Ordinary dreams would go, and I would always get back home

"Em Elbmuh"

Okay, I'm sleeping and I don't care…
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
And I worked on it with my friend
Back in 1849, times were hard
I think it'd be a sawed-off shotgun
They had a double-breasted jacket on
Nothin' but a problem, nothin' but a problem
New York's gotta problem
Where's our money, money, money, where's our money?
Stop practicing
Dr. Marx and John Lennon
No bull
Stop it!!!

Misfortune

One to many times I've seen you in a frown
You hold your head down in despair
Oh, but, now it's time you wear that frown
Cause you'll never see me again

Fortune, misfortune
Such a distortion
Fortune, misfortune
Such a distortion

You keep on reaching for those things you just can't keep
You keep on searching for some more
But I know, in this what you stole you are so greedy
You bet your stealin' like before

Fortune, misfortune
Fortune, misfortune
Such a distortion
Fortune, misfortune
Such a distortion

Artie

Walking over the same ole grass
Trying to stay on the beaten path
I don't need to apologize
For the things I don't recognize

Artie, take a look at me
And I wanna think about all the little things
That piss you off about me

Hey there man
I'll take and scratch your cat
But I'll apologize for all the little things
That piss you off about me

Walking over the same ole ground
Thinking 'bout all the things we found
I don't wanna let it bring me down
I'm wantin' out of this dirty town

Artie, take a look at me
And I wanna think about all the little things
That piss you off about me

Walking over the same ole grass
Trying to stay on the beaten path
I don't need to apologize
For the things I don't recognize

Walking over the same ole ground
Thinking 'bout all the things we found
I don't wanna let it bring me down
I'm wantin' out of this dirty town

Don't do anything irrational!
What happened?

Gimme Shelter

Oh, the storm is threatening
My very life today.
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

See the fire sweepin'
Our very streets today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Well, murder
It's just a shot away
Well, murder
It's just a shot away

Brother, sister
It's just a kiss away
Well, murder
It's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away

James Dean

Look around outside
Ain't nothing to do but hang around
Think about all the stupid things that I've done
I guess I ain't nothin' but a clown

If I had a wish, I swear I'd wish, I'd wish for just one thing
And I don't even like to think about all the things my wish'd bring

'Cause I just wanna be James Dean
I just wanna be James Dean
I just wanna be James Dean
For a day

I wanna be oversexed and underworked and look at me I'm such a jerk

And I just wanna be James Dean
For a day

Think about stories of the actors and the movies stars
Sittin' here watchin' the old men drinkin' at the bar
I think about Dean and all the things he should've tried
I think about Dean and all the ways he could've died
Yeah died…

And I wouldn't give a shit about anything 'cause I'd be such a big movie star
And that don't really do me much good just cryin' at the bar

But I just wanna be James Dean
I just wanna be James Dean
I just wanna be James Dean
For a day

See but I'm overworked and undersexed and look at me I'm such a wreck

And I just wanna be James Dean
For a day

Going crazy 'cause I'm always all alone
Going crazy no one calls me on the phone
I think about Dean and I know Dean he wouldn't care
If I was Dean I know there'd be somebody there
Yeah there'd be somebody there
For me…

Yeah I think about all the really cool things I could do and say
Then you go and tell me that you found out Dean was gay

No, I don't wanna be James Dean
I don't wanna be James Dean
I don't wanna be James Dean
Anymore …
Hmmm…
