Pumping the Tragus Austin, Texas

Born groundhog day 1982, I came into this world pissing on the doctor. I plan to continue pissing on as many things as possible until I'm dead.

Track Name: 5 Star Groomin
my 5 star groomin
doin less in fact
makin less impact
stayin less intact
and i keep movin
not lookin back
goin down the track
and i got my odds stacked
and death keeps loomin
right behind my back
like a heart attack

and if i'd let them
they'd fend for themselves

well i guess it all depends
where you get your news from
if you got it from me
then you wouldn't be so dumb
and i guess it all depends
on the people that you know
they can help make you
or they can make you go
Track Name: Add It Up
add it up add it up
one step at a time
keep the right focus
keep the right frame of mind
add it up add it up
forget the minus sign
well i'll try

ask once
ask twice
ask three times
shut your mouth get back in line

fix it up fill it up
get it runnin just fine
across dead city streets
and country telephone lines
add it up add it up
don't try to divide
well i'll try

ask once
ask twice
ask three times
shut your mouth you're doin just fine
and ask one ask once
ask twice
ask three times
Track Name: I Sure Do Miss Driving Without Destination
stopped at a red light
thought about goin through
i'll probably die
what would that do to
you my love
i'll kill you kill you
my love

flinched on the onramp
breaks sorta give out
you'll probably DIE
can i live without
you my love
you'll kill me kill me
my love
kill me kill me
my love
you'll kill me kill me my

i sure do miss driving without destination
kill me kill me my love
Track Name: The Wetter The Better
grass grows green a
cross the street
i can see it
from my sheets
in my bed i
never leave
grass grows green a
cross the street

grass grows green in
my own yard
i can't reach it
it's too far
watch tv un
til i scream
grass grows green in
my own yard

it's like light through a lense
and light bends as i pretend
that i am safely by the sea
Track Name: All the Reasons It Went Wrong
old man
got fools
got caught breakin all of the rules
gone back
square one
start over where he had begun

old man
such a fool
got caught breakin all of the rules
back to
square one
everyone knows that that ain't no fun

got sand
will tell
will travel to the depths of hell
meet you
down there
at the bottom of the lake of despair
and you can't cry
no time
gotta get on the move you're just fine
and i can't be
mehee
hee hee hee hee hee hee

i'll never
get there
i went to slow got stuck in rear gear
somewhere
i'm sure
there's a path that leads to the cure of
my face
and your face
are dead to the rest of the human race
i don't care
do you care?
why should we breathe this fucking air?
