Track Name: Shakey Grounds
Lady luck and a four leaf clover
Won't ease this hurt I feel all over
My life was one big special occasion
Until your leaving damp with the situation

Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

My car got respossessed this morning
Hard times I haven't seen in years
Girl you better thwor me a life preserver
I'm about to drown in my own tears

Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Track Name: The Suffering
I saw the stars in your eyes
And I knew it was puppy school love
The sky's the limit
You saw the twinkle in mine
Then we both knew it was time to hold our breath
And run and get committed

We got lost in a sea of love and lust
With a galaxy of trust
We were soon committed
To each other like a mussel in a clam
To the movies to the mall glued together hand in hand

And we walked and ran through love land
Everything was fine
Until my baby took me for my very last dime

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I'd been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I'm wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

Understand I'm a man
Who believes in the glory of love
You're a fool and a sucka
True love is the light shining bright
From the Heavens, The Heavens above
You poor motherfucker

I believe, I believe it is better to trust
Even when I'm wrong
Be careful you're my brother
Than to let my fear drive me
From the home where I have belonged


She was my Queen to protect and serve
Then she threw me a curve
Skam skimmin' gold diggin'
Kick me to the curb

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I'd been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I'm wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

I know what they say on the street
She's a cheat and a thief and a liar
And everybody knows it
But she's my light and my love and my hope
And my only desire
Your anger can't control it

She broke the bank, then she took my car
That chick stole my heart

Should have known from the start

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I'd been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I'm wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering
Track Name: Where'd You Get Those Pants
Where'd you get those pants?
Grabbin' flesh and moanin' like a Buddist chant
Polyester friction rubbin' butt
Pedal pushers pumpin', I can't get enough
Hip huggin' puts me in a trance

Ohhh, where'd you get those pants?
Lord have mercy

Where'd you get those pants?
Like honey stickin' to a jar attractin' ants
It makes me alivate when your chocolate shakes
So gimme double chili cheese and bacon cake
And throw me in a side of romance

Girl, where'd you get those pants
Hey foxy lady

This shiny silver sweaty shirt stuck to my skin
Reveals the hot and helpless hungry state I'm in
You give my brand new pants a brand new happy fit
You really got me movin'
So let me get you groovin'

Where'd you get those pants
Let's hit the parking lot for a second glance
In the back seat of my Cadillac, let's take a chance
Them bitchy britches look so dope
Hittin' switches til it itches, let's lose control

Where'd you get those pants?
I can dig it
Where'd you get those pants?

Click like a camera flash
And them Spandex
Making me erect
Ahh, those daisy dukes
The way they ridin' up the booty
Make an old man just get up and dance
And take all his Viagra

The fit on the hip makes my backbone slip
The slope of the curve hits the rawest nerve
Those silky thights they hypnotize
You're messin' up my mind

The fit on the hip makes it worth the trip
The slope of the curve hits the rawest nerve
Thsoe silky thighs they hypnotize
You're messin' up my mind
Track Name: Everybody Is A Star
Everybody is a star
Who can rain, chase the dust away
Everybody wants to shine
Ooh, come out on a cloudy day
'Til the sun that loves you proud
When the system tries to bring you down
Every hand to shine tonight
You don't need darkness to do what you think is right

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, shine, shine, shine, shine
Track Name: Just Allow
You've seen your future
from your present state
And filtered through your past,
it may not look too great
If you could have your future
generate your now
You'd probably sit back,
relax, kick off your shoes
And just allow

Like you got nuttin' to lose
And just allow
That's how you liberate your muse
And just allow
Like you got nuttin' to lose
And just allow here and now
Just allow
Sweatless brow

Nextplore the things you never knew
you didn't know
Release your fears, they'll only
serve to stop your flow
No need to try hard
You'll get there anyhow
The hardest thing maybe is stop trying
And just allow

Like you got nuttin' to lose
And just allow
Why row your boat
when you can cruise
And just allow
Like you got nuttin' to lose
And just allow here and now
Just allow

The universe is on my side
It nurtures all maternally
Whether or not there's a heaven or hell
To burn our souls infernally
When the unversal elements agree
Existence thrives eternally
True destiny just come to be
Can't be controlled externally
Just allow

It's not a state of inactivity
It's more like life, in onto livability
There are no herdsmen
You aren't sheep or cows
You'll find your interstellar
If you just allow

Like you got nuttin' to lose
And just allow
No introductions to confuse
And just allow
Like you got nuttin' to lose
And just allow here and now
Just allow
Track Name: AIDS & Armageddon
I get six to many fingers and a subatomic coat
I took my babay out to dinner but all she wanted
was dope on the way to the abortion
she said babies take hope I said all you ever do
is just sit around and mope about

Aids and Armageddon
Armageddon and Aids
well I don't want to talk about it
cause I think I might have got it
anyway I just got laid
Armageddon and Aids

I dream assassination I hallucinate cash
I'm afraid of my own future I'm disgusted with my past
I wake up dreaming every morning
about some chemical blast my brain
filled up with questions that I'm too afraid to ask
I just don't wanna know

Aids and Armageddon
Armageddon and Aids
well I don't want to talk about it
cause I think I might have got it
and anyway I just got paid
that's Aids and Armageddon
Armageddon and Aids

Well she was in hiding
from the powers that be
she viewed living
as dying ungracefully
our love affair ended
the day she tried to kill me
she said you know
you're gonna die
I said yeah but not yet

So I wound up in Las Vegas
to earn some alimony cash
I made an honest dollar
looking trhough my
neighbors trash
but these jaded jet set wastrels
always pounding at my door
they'd talk about Gandhi
then go looking for some hoes
Track Name: It All Kept Startin' Over Again
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end

I flew to the nearest escape
I ran from the land of rape
I jumped in the krnked up pit
I skuttled over snakes and bacon bits
I slipped on the peel of misfortune
I stumbled while tryin' to recover a fumble
I scraped up the flattened and started again
I leaped from within without a spring or a spin
we be cyclin' in a cyclic way

It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end

I sauntered onto a thinly paved scalp
I staggered from a glass of stout
I took a loan I could not afford
I launched up hi the halo in the sky
I come up from beneath and remove the confining sheath
I slithered with stealth and snuck past the infection
I lurched forward in one solid direction I stood alone
because I had to survive we recycle in a cyclic way

It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end

Like a snotty nose spoilyor a booger eatin' bully
scapegoat distraction is to keep from lookin' silly
Oh ya -- alright like a snotty nose spoily
or a booger eatin' bully ugly on the inside
on the outside lookin' pretty oh ya -- alright

we be cyclin' in a cyclic way maze like this
amazed like this we recycle in a cyclic way
lost in a daze like this we recycle in a cyclic way

And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
Track Name: Karma Tsunami
Karma Tsunami
comin down on you with the weight
of the sea it ain' never fun
the repercussions of the concussion
of what the karma tsunami from what you've done

Do unto others as you want them to do unto you
laughing at the pain that you put others through
buildin' up bad karma
now look what you've done
bad luck crashing down on you
weighing a thousand tons

Karma Tsunami
comin down on you with the weight
of the sea it ain' never fun
the repercussions of the concussion
of what the karma tsunami from what you've done

Scandalous grave diggin' and tossin' dirt done
wrong to your friends
and it's you they put they're trust in you
done burned all you bridges
and you're stranded out at sea
buried six feet in the grave of denial
you can't berathe nor see
twistin' and turnin' in your sleep

Whoa is your karma maker machine
especially when it's bad
lobsters clams and the andreadoria
swordfish merlins and the Lusitania
blurring box and jellyfish
the thresher, Macao and bluewhale
in a tidal wave built with the fury of hell

Karma tsunami standing high comin' down on you
nowhere to run or hide
what chu gonna do

Do unto others as you want them to do unto you
laughing at the pain that you put others through
buildin' up bad karma
now look what you've done
bad luck crashing down on you
weighing a thousand tons

Karma Tsunami
comin down on you with the weight
of the sea it ain' never fun
the repercussions of the concussion
of what the karma tsunami from what you've done
