Track Name: Two
A little creature came to me and said
Answer my question and your mind will open to the world
Get it wrong and I will scream inside your head
Go ahead I said, Go ahead I said

The creature asked, "Is two a lot"
I said no, I said no
So what about
Two houses, two wives, two million, two lives
Twice the pleasure, secret lies

It's burning, get out of my head
Twice the pleasure,
I want twice the pleasure

So give me
Two houses, two wives, two million, two lives
Twice the pleasure, secret lies

Two world wars, two bombs fall
Destroy two towers, two mile crawl
Two blind eyes to the horror of it all.

Two houses, two wives, two million, two lives
Twice the pleasure, secret lies

Two world wars, two bombs fall
Destroy two towers, two mile crawl
Two blind eyes to the horror of it all.
Track Name: Severed
I was severed from the cord when I was born
And severed from so many things on and on
Parts of me
Stuff I own
Things I like
Ones I love
If I hold it close it will be gone

Oh, here they go again
Oh, here they come to sever me

Whoa, oh, greedy little hands taking what they can
Whoa, oh, taking what they see, every piece of me now
Whoa, oh, everything I save is something that they crave now

Severed from the cord, severed from my skin, severed from the breast, severed from the crib, severed from my folks, severed from my home, severed from my youth and forced to grow old, severed from my health, severed from my ball, severed from a picture of dogs playing cards, severed from my hair, severed from my job, forced into this dead end job

Oh, here they go again
Oh, here they come to sever me

Whoa, oh, greedy little hands taking what they can
Whoa, oh, taking what they see, every piece of me now
Whoa, oh, everything I save is something that they crave now
Track Name: Avenger
The invisible avenger says love thy neighbor
The invisible avenger says kill the non-believer
The invisible avenger says you shouldn't kill
The invisible avenger says we are all intertwined
There are many invisible avengers
Leave me alone

Some crossed the sea so they could be
Away from your insanity
Some crossed the sea so they could be
Away from your insanity
One face says lover for all
The other face takes all the gold
The invisible avenger's powerful
But needs your money

Some crossed the sea so they could be
Away from your insanity
Some crossed the sea so they could be
Away from your insanity
Worship as you will
I respect your choice
Leave me alone

Do not lie, do not steal
Do not kill, do not covet
Don't worship things, Take a day off
Take time for love, mind your business
Do not kill
Do not kill
Do not kill
Track Name: Brains and a Bugatti
Pretty little boy with baby soft hands
Uses his wallet to make him a man

Nerdy college kid, really good at math
Now his revenge is about twenty million

So he rents a supermodel, she loves the life
His house is having work done, and so is his wife

'cause he's got brains and a nice Bugatti
Great big brains, and a shiny Bugatti
He's got brains and drives a Bugatti
Great big brains, million dollar Bugatti

He manages a billion in funds
Takes his two percent when the year is done
Doesn't do much more than anyone could
And now he makes his money all off of you

So he rents a supermodel, she loves the life
His house is having work done, and so is his wife

'cause he's got brains and a nice Bugatti
Great big brains, and a shiny Bugatti
He's got brains and drives a Bugatti
Great big brains, million dollar Bugatti

Pretty little boy with baby soft hands
Lost all that money to some other man
Now he's got less, much less than you
And he feel's he's worthless, there's nothing left to...

So he lost his super model, she didn't like that life
Then he burned his house to the ground, someone's riding his wife

So he shot his brains, inside his Bugatti
Bloody brains, in a Bugatti
No more brains, cause they're in the Bugatti
Bloody brains, in the seat of a Bugatti
Track Name: Tarantula
Tarantula

(yes, that is all)
Track Name: Stupid Kid
Another stupid kid died today
He decided to try a brand new way
Riding around on the hood of car
I can tell you right now, he didn't get too far

What's the matter, what were you thinking
When they put you in the bag they could tell you were drinking

What's in in your head that makes you want to be the kid who does the stupidest thing

Another stupid kid died today
She decided to try the old fashioned way
A bottle of pills she decided to try
Let me tell you why she wanted to die

Seems her boyfriend said he didn't want her anymore
They we going out for three months, maybe it was four

What's in in your head that makes you want to be the kid who does the stupidest thing

Hey little boy, you think you're a man
But what you did I don't think that you understand
Did you do what a real man would
Now your dead, that's not so good

Hey little girl, that's what you are
Don't you think that you took it just a little bit too far
With what you did did you think that his life would end
I bet you right now, he's out with your best friend

What's the matter, what were you thinking
When they put you in the bag they could tell you were drinking

What's in in your head that makes you want to be the kid who does the stupidest thing
Track Name: Danced for Me
Big hair and MTV, I remember when you danced
There was Bill and Monica Lewinsky, I remember when you danced
During freedom's fight and homeland security, I remember when you danced
When the market's crashed all around me, I remember when you danced

For all that's changed in this world, most of it bad
You danced and I admired, constantly desired
There's no change there, back in time and hour here and there
Wait for a year to travel back for a day

When we stumbled drunk to vending machines, I remember when you danced
When Nirvana broke onto the scene, I remember when you danced
When the Bronx created its dynasty, I remember when you danced
When the music was gone from MTV, I remember when you danced

For all that's changed in this world, most of it bad
You danced and I admired, constantly desired
There's no change there, back in time and hour here and there
Wait for a year to travel back for a day
Track Name: Keep an Eye on What's Below
Wicked lightning strikes my path and makes me make the choice
With open heart and open mind, I struggle to hear the voice
My life has reached an important point, I fear I have to choose
Both side of the path are glowing and neither gives me any clues

I know which path that you should take my heart says to my mind
But understand that either way, you leave something behind
So now I look inside myself, the clues begin to grow
I take the first step to the choice and keep an eye on what's below

Yes I keep an eye on what's below

The road turns red my feet get hot but it's the choice I made
I think about turning around but I an stuck on what's ahead
Desire, pleasure and a sense of danger, does passion rule my fate
I think about turning around but I fear that it may be too late

So if I close my eyes and I see red, that's what I choose to see
I have to go and face the truth, these paths were made by me
So now I look inside myself, the clues begin to grow
I take the first step to the choice and keep an eye on what's below

Red can be fire, and red can be cold
And darkness can be lonely, or so that's what I am told
Now I've seen the darkness, and it ain't so be
Sometimes it takes the darkness to forget about what you had

So I keep an eye on what's below.

'cause I know there is no place to go.
Track Name: Pictures
I don't hear what my heart says
All I want is to see you smile
Day are dark without you
Just to hold you for awhile

You can take dow the pictures
But you can't take the memories
I hate myself since I've hurt you
What can I do for you to forgive me

If I only had a penny
For all the times I cried for you
I'd buy a house in the country
Where we could live happily

You can take dow the pictures
But you can't take the memories
I hate myself since I've hurt you
What can I do for you to forgive me

The only piece to the puzzle
For rich or poor, who cares
I want to sleep in heaven
and wake up with you there

Then everyone would be jealous
And no one ever come between
A bond stronger than diamond
Why not get one on a ring
Track Name: Pride
The sound of the party just fades away
As you walk down the street with your head hanging low, so low
The little yellow line slides under your feet
It's taking you nowhere, there's no place to go, oh no

So what are your reasons for hiding what's inside
You don't know what to believe in, you just want to hold on to your pride

You can't keep secrets from yourself
You wonder if it has to do with you
But your mask is so perfect why take it off
Who needs to know just what is you, no one

So what are your reasons for hiding what's inside
You don't know what to believe in, you just want to hold on to you pride

I've got something to show you, can't you see what's bothering me
I don't care who I stand next to, why is it so hard for you to love me
So what are your reasons, not to trust me
I've got something that you thought you'd never see

Don't give me your pain, I've got mine
You drive me insane, but not this time
I've got something that you thought unreal
I'm happy to tell you that when it comes to love, this heart is cold and steel
Track Name: Sandy's Chicken and Fries
I get out of work I can't wait
'cause you know that it's never too late
I can't wait 'til later for those piping hot taters
Sandy's chicken and fries

I like my eggs over easy
She always knows how to please me
A taste of that pie is a tongue bulls-eye
Sandy's chicken and fries

Chicken
And fries
Can't wait for the shake
Sandy

She's always filing my cup
The hot stuff it get's me up
It makes me shudder when she melts my butter
Sandy's chicken and fries

She wipes it all clean with a towel
She's always there to silence my growl
Three Franklins I slip for a great big tip
Sandy's chicken and fries

Chicken
And fries
Can't wait for the shake
Sandy
