Are You An Organism? Lyric Sheet


Happy To Be Here (Milk Milk)

Milk milk
Alkaline
Alka-Seltzer
Endocrine
Beery piss
Pissy beer
All I know is that I'm happy to be here

Throw away
When you're done
Go away
Everyone
Wish you'd all
Disappear
All I know is that I'm happy to be here

Milk milk
Coffeepot
Take a shower
Maybe not
Just you wait
Til next year
All I know is that I'm happy to be here


Underdrive

I dress up as you in my bedroom and I
I feel insanely jealous of you
With your face on the magazine cover and your
Big breast implants that jiggle the way they do

I feel as though life were a party and I
Brought nothing, and I was the last to arrive
I need the courage to push in the throttle
And live my life in underdrive

Rebellion through conformity
Stick out by acting normally
Give in to herd mentality
And wrap it up in the best of me
Rebellion through conformity
Stick out by acting normally
Give in to herd mentality
It happens to the best of me

I follow your daily plans to the letter
I wish you'd return my letter to you
With the invisible ink you use to acknowledge
Your correspondance the way you do

My life is a lie but it's a fun lie
Waiting for you, hoping you will arrive
I shifted down and let you take over
Why don't you take over?
Underdrive

I watch you defy authority
And with my hand I make an empty V
Devoid of all sincerity
Rebellion through conformity
Rebellion through conformity
Rebellion through conformity
Rebellion through conformity

The happiest day of my life should resemble
The happiest days of those who have come before
And prophecy dictates my happiest day is
Tomorrow or the day after that for sure.


Disaster Movie

I saw a disaster movie
And it was a disaster
It had Steve Buscemi in it
But I blew chunks anyway
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

There was a supernova or something
And there were lots of explosions
And lots of people were killed
It kind of went downhill
From there
Should I care?
Should I care?
Should I care?
Should I care?

Got up and an usher stopped me
He said "Where you think you're goin'?"
I said I had to go pee
He said "You'll watch the movie
And like it"
So I watched it
But I didn't like it
And I wet my pants
And it ruined my day
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Fat Albert

I saw a disaster movie
And it was a disaster


Helium

Oh no
What have I done?
I've overdosed
On helium

Sucking helium

I tried helium
And then moved on
I did nitrogen
And silicon
I've done yttrium
And bismuth too
Every element from H to Uuu

Sucking helium

What a price to pay
For a high
I can feel
My brain cells die

Michael Jackson
Here I come
With a tank of
Helium


Ode To A Porcelain Puppy

When I go outside in the rain
The puddles start to drain
When I go outside in the sun
I catch it on my tongue
What can I say in my defense?
Unbridled arrogance
Purple sunset over the sea
Created just for me

Often I think back to the day
The puppy came my way
Came into my life when it could
And shut the door for good
Taught me how to laugh and to sing
And to be annoying
Though its eyes are porcelain paint
It watches like a saint

Chorus
That little puppy saved my life and I'm grateful forever
That little puppy taught me I should trust in Jesus
That little puppy cut the drugs and the booze
That little puppy taught me how to tie my shoes
That little puppy tells me which way I should go
That little puppy taught me everything I know
That little puppy makes my decisions for me
I put my life in the hands of a porcelain puppy

Behold all my talents and skills
I am immune from ills
I will never grow old
I'll never catch a cold
You will never turn for the worse
As puppy customers
So doped up on the life that he gives
That I can't even live

Chorus

If I had my way there would be just one ASCII character and
If I had my way there would be one character per line and
If I had my way there would be one line per page and
I would be clean and smooth and pure like a little porcelain puppy

Hey puppy (repeat)

You are all I have
And you are all I need
What the heck is this thing around my neck?
It's a little porcelain puppy
It's a little piece of home
It's my one reassurance, my dental insurance, my proof against turning to seafoam
It's Protection From Hades, 10' Radius, out in the world all alone
It's my one guiding light that I throw through the night to show me the only way home

And I love him, yes I do
I love him, so should you
I love him, yes I do
I love him, so should you
Because...


lowercase

if i never smile
it might take a while
if i scream and shout
for them to find me out
ill complain and whine
they will think im fine
i can find a place
by using lowercase

chorus
lowercase will chase the rain away
lowercase will chase the sun away
lowercase will chase the sky away
lowercase will chase an uncaring world away

if with perfect poise
i can sample noise
if i gripe and moan
girls will take me home
if i act depressed
they will get undressed
they will like my face
if i use lowercase

chorus

vacuum in my soul
cash flow make me whole
if i moan and bitch
soon i will be rich
sappy through and through
i'll remember you
i can find a place
using lowercase

chorus

oh cruel world why did you break my shift keys/


Sodium And Gamera

Woke up and
Gamera was there
Woke up and
Gamera was there

Didn't have to say a thing
Didn't have to ask my parents
Just jumped onto the rubber suit
And we were on our way

I climb up on his shell
And we fly up in the air
When I'm on his shell
I can see for miles

I see the ocean!
I see all over Tokyo!
The rabbit hutches!
I see the air pollution!
And me and Gamera
We fly above it all

'Cause Gamera has a good heart
Yeah, he has a good heart
Gamera has a good heart
Yeah, he has a good heart

I really hurt inside
My mom and dad don't care
But Gamera is kind
He buys me tiny shorts

I never have to say a thing
He seems to know just what I'm thinking about and I
Took him down to Show and Tell
They won't be laughing now

Gamera is friend
To children everywhere
Breaking trains and towns
Like models on a stage

They send the army!
They send a million rockets!
Their tiny people!
Their tiny ammunition
And me and Gamera
We will survive it all

'Cause Gamera has a good heart
Yeah, he has a good heart
Gamera has a good heart
I'm feeling really good!


Liquid Crystal

He went outside
An individual
He came back in
A perspective on a team
Made of parts
But indivisible
Or just invisible
Or etheral [sic]

And when he breaks
He's installation art
And when he works
He needs to be broken again
What he does
Is no concern of yours
And what he knows
You do not understand

Irradiate him
Irritate him
He's your laboratory specimen
You need not desist
He will not resist
He's your logical conclusion

And in a time
And in a way
And in a sense
But anyway

He asks his friends
The forest animals
If they know of a place
Where he can hide away
"It's over there."
They seem to say
But all he sees are trees

Irradiate him
Dessicate him
He's your laboratory specimen
You need not desist
He does not exist
He's your logical conclusion


Fun Pig

Everybody wants to be a fun pig
Everybody wants to be a fun pig
Everybody wants to be a fun pig
Cause fun pigs have more

Everybody wants to be a fungi
Everybody wants to be a fungi
Everybody wants to be a fungi
But they don't get mushroom

Everybody loves a little pun
But patience doesn't last that long
20,000 games of Donkey Kong
Wanna kill the guy who wrote this song
Everybody wants to be


Get Down Or Die

Get down
Or die
Get down
Or die
You will
Have fun
Get down
Or die
Round and round and up and down
I say a one two three bop
One two three


Alamo Beetle

One, two, three, four
He's an Alamo beetle
Always facing the sun
He's an Alamo beetle
Building castles of dung

When you go out to dinner
Carry him in your hand
He knows all of the stories
History right where you stand
Chorus
He can dance on the head of a pin and slip through the eye of a needle
But everything tastes like aquarium water when you're an Alamo beetle

One, two, four, eight
When you're placing your order
Let him scurry around
Down by the Mexican border
Dig that Chicano sound

He's a beetle bus driver
Giving tours of Texas
Someday he'll hit the big time
He'll be driving a Lexus

Chorus

One, four, nine, sixteen
He remembers the Alamo
Santa Anna and Crockett
He's as good as an almanac
And he fits in your pocket

He's an Alamo beetle
Always chasing the sun
He's an Alamo beetle
Someday his blueprints will come
Someday his blueprints will come

Chorus


Swim Free

Hey ho, let the fish swim free
Hey ho, let the fish swim free
Hey ho, let the fish swim free
Let the fish swim free

Hey ho, fish belong in the sea
Not on your Acura GT
You are not listening to me
I said let the fish swim free

These noble creatures of the sea
Forced to represent Christianity
It makes me feel like I have to pee
Let the fish swim free

Hey ho, let the fish swim free
Hey ho, hear them as they plea:
"Help me! I'm a fish stuck to the back of a car by a mean person who should
mend his or her evil ways and never put fish on the back of cars ever again!"
(That's not what they say!)
It is too!
Let the fish swim free

What if you get in a rear-ender
Poor little fish, crushed on the fender
I bet you wouldn't even care

Hey ho, you have no right
Someday that fish will bite
Until then, I'll just complain
About how you should let the fish swim free

Hey ho, fish belong in the sea
Unless they're freshwater fish
In which case they belong in a stream
Let the fish swim free

Tear that fish right off your car
Help it heal its dreadful scar
Then go have a candy bar
Let the fish swim free


Kleptomania

Attention, youth of America
This is what you want
This is who you are
Thank you for your time

The movie event of the summer
In a world where the wind blows cold
Beautiful maidens in the arms of hideous beasts
You won't believe your your eyes

When eyes are dry
I come on your television and blather on and on
But when you squirt crap in your eye
I go away


68 Dead Ones

There's a dog
In the back
Of my yard
There's a dog in the back of my yard
I don't know how it got there, it won't go away
There's a dog
There's a dog

There's a cry
From the mouth
Of the sea
There's a cry from the mouth of the sea
They found sixty-eight dead ones
There on the beach
There's a cry
There's a cry

Twenty, forty, sixty-eighter
Blasting cap and detonator
I know exactly how I am
Ten newtons to the kilogram

There's a song
In the back
Of my head
There's a song in the back of my head
I don't know how it got there
It won't go away
There's a song
There's a song
There's a song in the back of my head


The Bourbonwitha Twist

Well, I've been with Hate since I was fourteen
We've been going steady if you know what I mean
And the good times just get better with every year
I can still remember the look on her face
When Jesse Owens won the master race
But there's nothing so ugly that you can't stand up and cheer
And the fun we had was never greater
Than when we kissed at the top of the escalator
And the guards threw us out for doing the Bourbonwitha Twist

You can say what you like about Hate and her friends
But when she leaves, man, the party ends
She's a swingin' chick and I'm glad she's on my side, oh yeah
I remember back in thirty-nine
A walk in the park and a bottle of wine
I got down on my knees and asked her to be my bride
Well the second time I wasn't afraid
And the neighbors must have noticed all the noise we made
'Cause the men in the suits were doing the Bourbonwitha Twist

Well, it's almost time, I should really go
But it was good to feel the rain, you know
And I hope you won't forget me when I'm gone
The remote's over there, there's some stuff in the fridge
And don't you worry about the kids
Hate's got a little playset she set up on the lawn, oh yeah
Well the future's bright, things are looking great
For the twenty-first century and Hate's daughter Hate
I see the whole darn world doing the Bourbonwitha Twist
