Restiform Bodies

BandEDMHip Hop

Why are you on this elevator? Is this thing moving? I'm terrified of elevators. My band mates and five others were once trapped in a high rise lift in Brighton for half an hour. Seriously, are we moving? We strive to be the test tube child of Lil Wayne and LCD Soundsystem. Should we call somebody?

Biography

Restiform Bodies are David Bryant-vocalist and
song writer, Matt Valerio- percussionist and beat-
maker & George Chadwick-synth, sample and
effects slayer. In 2000 they made a tape called
Oubliette, and caught the attention of Oakland's
then young experimental hip hop collective,
anticon. Once in Oakland RB began a career of
what they refer to affectionately as "total career
ambivalence." Repeatedly dodging the bullet of a
follow up to their S/T release on anticon's
deceased in-house distributor and label imprint, 6
months distribution, the three focused instead on
developing songs for performance with live
electronics, resulting in a metric ton of songs and
zero grams of vinyl. The joke is that the three can
seldom be found in the same room, even though
they lived together for all intents and purposes
throughout high school, which may ironically be the
puzzle buster of their story. Since 2000 Restiform Bodies
have toured in support of their self-titled LP (an organized
version of the bedroom cassette) and their various
individual projects. They have each recorded at the very
least one solo release, and at last their debut
record for anticon, TV LOVES YOU BACK,
which may or may not pay off the computer.

Black Friday

Written By: Passage

I'M ON A MARTYR MISSION
THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING FROM THE RAW EDITION
BUT I'VE BEEN FISHING IN THE MOTHER FUCKING WRONG DIRECTION
AND THIS DISORDER GOT A HISTORY, A RICH TRADITION
I GET DISTRACTED, SEE THE WORLD IN ALL MALL VISION

COMMAND A SHOPPING CART
TO WHAT DO I OWE THIS PLEASURE
I'M DECORATING LIKE A MANIAC IN WET WEATHER

THE NOMAD HAS COME TO KILL IN PILL YELLOW
RESTORE SOME ORDER AND LET THE DUST SETTLE

WE HIT EM UPSIDE ON BLACK FRIDAY
JUST SLIP RIGHT IN, WE JUST SLIP RIGHT IN
WE HIT EM UPSIDE ON BLACK FRIDAY
JUST SLIP RIGHT IN, WE JUST SLIP RIGHT IN

AIN'T NO ROMANCE IN A BUSINESS TRANCE
YOU BEST BREAK IT DOWN AND LIGHT YOUR LAMP
BEFORE THE WICK GET DAMP
WE'RE FLOATING DOWN IN FLAMES
DON'T MEAN TO BURDEN
BUT YOU'RE TERMINATED AND
STATE SERVICES ARE TO BLAME

IT'S SUCH A HOOT THAT I'M HAVING WITH HOT STEEL
FEEL LIKE THE STATE KIND OF CUT ME A RAW DEAL
CAN'T TAKE THE FAME OUT OF MY NEW CATASTROPHE
YOU TAKE ME OUT, THEY'LL BE ANOTHER ONE AFTER ME
FELL THROUGH THE CRACKS AND I'D BE CRAZY TO CARE
WHO I DESTROY IN MY CONSUMER DESPAIR
CLEAN UP A STAIN WITH A HOUSEHOLD NAME
YOU KNOW THE URGE, I MAKE YOU NERVOUS
WHEN I GET ON THE PLANE

WHAT DO WE DREAM WHEN WE DREAM WE BELONG
ALL DAY STRONG ALL DAY LONG
WHAT DO WE DREAM WHEN WE DREAM WE BELONG
ALL DAY STRONG ALL DAY LONG

I'M MORE ABSORBENT THAN THE LEADING BRAND
YOU TELL THE NEIGHBORS IN ADVANCE
SO THEY DON'T FREAK WHEN THEY
SEE ME ON THE SEATING PLAN
MAN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH TOWER
I DYE MY EYES BROWN JUST TO MATCH MY GOWN
AND NOW IT'S ALL OVER
YOU'VE BEEN BETRAYED BY AN ANIMAL
WHO AIN'T AFRAID TO TAKE THE POWER
RIGHT THE FUCK AWAY FROM YOUR
HUMAN DRAMA
BEAST IN THE EASTER BASKET,
WAITING FOR HIS MASTER JUST TO
TURN AROUND A MINUTE, SO HE CAN
FEAST ON THE IMAGE CAPTURE
BLOODY PIECE OF LOVE
GONE SHIT HOUSE, MALL BLAST
FOOD COURT PRESS ON THE LOCAL CHAPTER

WE HIT EM UPSIDE ON BLACK FRIDAY
JUST SLIP RIGHT IN, WE JUST SLIP RIGHT IN
WE HIT EM UPSIDE ON BLACK FRIDAY
JUST SLIP RIGHT IN, WE JUST SLIP RIGHT IN

Foul

Written By: Passage

MY DICK GET DIZZY LIKE A BUSY BAYONET
what a thug is nature laying hornets eggs in
baby's bassinet
My phone is out of order
I'm breaking bread and water
There is ain't a criminal I know who
wouldn't kind of want to

take it for granted
like an early release
not screaming premature teen age ejaculation
but peace
put away your restless leg and never
wake from your sleep
It's been a while
My number's coming
Bubbling up from the deep

One day I'll roar when the phone rings early in the morning,
teeth turning saber without no fair warning
ONLY IMAGE in the mirror make an entertaining target
Satisfied examining his diet on the carpet
When cramped as the cross in a decent apartment,
He'll start splitting at the seams like the real estate market

The can't stop, won't stop clown of clubs
Begins talking to itself, but the talk ain't enough
It's trying to touch or to fuck a three dimensional what
HE wants to step into the plaque without packing its stuff

It's been a while
since you went foul
no sin is wild
or out of bounds

It's been a while
since you went foul
no sin is wild
or out of bounds

second chance like there ain't enough tranq in the dart,
vulgar, amateurish dance without a care in your cart
Rubber stamp for a smile, bravest bear on the BART
Gutter lamp light your way to the imbecile's park

You put a chump in a tux and you give it a wand
You let it lead, let it wave 'til the end of the song
You make it read, make it bathe with the cumber bun on
And then you lock it in the house while you're painting the lawn
A Prozac prince winning no bread in the business
I get to sweating like a yellow belly tele-tubby midget,
NOW I'm throwing up my dinner in the scuba regulator,
No way I wait around for a feeding frenzy to cater
The human golden choke chain is a strain so rare
It tethers Dog-like minds to their folding chairs
Each man a title screen loop, merely the slimy shell
Around a feature crustacean of unlikely selves,

It's been a while
since you went foul
no sin is wild
or out of bounds

It's been a while
since you went foul
no sin is wild
or out of bounds

MY DICK STAY DIZZY LIKE A BUSY BAYONET
what a thug is nature laying hornets eggs in
baby's bassinet

In an olympic sized minute I can't finish the thinnest thought
Which glimmers like false teeth in a cartoon bird's beak
Crack an obvious joke like it's as sharp as a knife, it's
A retractable school play blade kind of life

When all of your POsture is finally Bent
Appear and vaporize in a dingy basement
Until all the bozo bargain-hunters holler requests
Until you're muscles in the moss on the damp carpet

MY EGO GET EXCITED CAUSE A CRIPPLING FRAGRANCE
STARING AT MY SHOES IN TRANQUILIZED UN-AMAZEMENT
TRAP SNAPPED TIGHT LOOKING DUMB AS THE DAVID
DO THE Drag and drop dance like I need a new agent

YOU KNOW YOUR IMAGE CANNOT SIMPLY STEP OUT
UNANNOUNCED WITHOUT A CARAMELIZED COMPUTER EFFECT
TO COMPLIMENT THE TORSO COOLING YOU WITH DISHES OF SWEAT
FROM AN UNTROUBLED WORLD IN THE MEDICINE CHEST
EACH WAVE WOVEN BONE OF THE SUBJECT EXPOSED
LEAVES BLUE BLOCKS OF PISS FROM AIRPLANE COMMODES
WHICH ARRIVE ARRIVE ON THE WORLD LIKE ORPHANS ON STEPS
LIKE REDUNDANT YET UNFAMILIAR FREE GIFTS

WHILE DICK-NO-TIZED REACH INTO YOUR MAGIC GRADUATION GOWN
FEEL THE ORGANS TURN SUMMER SOFT SERVE NATURE'S NERVOUS NOW

It's been a while
since you went foul
no sin is wild
or out of bounds

It's been a while
since you went foul
no sin is wild
or out of bounds

Pimp Like God

Written By: Passage

A pimp like God needs all his gold for his mouth
A pimp like God ain't equipped to settle down
A pimp like God is bound to flash on a spouse and it's
This pimp like God who prevents me exchanging vows

A pimp like God must forever remain calm and unemotional above all
But our wedding night's gon knock the pussy loose and the teeth out your mama's mouth
which gets my kinky shrinking thoughts retarded
Night life appetite kick started, I'm

Hungry as a secret admirer high up in a hideout hut
Hungry for the mildest meat of a wild slut or
Whiling in the freezer department and feeling hot
Looking everywhere for full penetration
Ain't another vision I'd give my freedom up
My dream isn't reason enough
Lead a team to victory running up in the cut
feeling like i've seen enough without even needing to nut
Leaving the venus cleaner than i found it around it
a ring of flowers I sound like I'm fucking nuts but
you're delicious as a biblical image and yeah
I think we need to fuck

Well depose my witness
These hoes got WISHES of their own
That's rich I done told y'all hypocrites
Hoes are just witches with
Ring fingers that's hungry for gold
Well tell us something we didn't already know

Well fold my britches
These hoes, they've got ISSUES of their own
That's rich I done told y'all hypocrites
Hoes are just witches with
Ring fingers that's hungry for gold, but
That ain't nothing you don't already know

Just my luck
You've been fitted for your dress
And there you go up to the altar with a man who pays his rent
It ruined prom when I watched you carve my heart up on your plate
my ma ma ma malt shop memories have all but to disintegrate

I'll go to war with a frat boy
cargo pants clad lad with the blade of an ice skate
Or a High heel, I'll make a side deal
I want my last meal when your ride's here

Don't need a blessing from a pimp like god
I'm so polite up on the microphone
When I'm just a ghost in your notes
Still trying to climb the oiled rope,
No pimp like God is going to help me out

I'm the frostiest funkiest feather haired customer
Slick as a Freudian slip, crisp as a cucumber as
Handsome as a carriage on my pay as you go
You know I'm fronting, but I'm obligated legally to let you know,

I'm rocking poser mobile like a prom gown
I did a record then my operation timed out
And everything I owned was at my mom's house
But it sold in the garage sale it's gone now

My mama don't know me, when she pick up the phone,
But homeboy she cry tears of sheer joy And listen
it's that type of shit that gets them every time
not your ratchet jaw smooth talk, wallet or wine
my diamond devastating insights and latter day saint looks,
steady knocking the pussy out the pocket book, you'd better
Hide away your women get rid of them with the quickness
Cause only one thing is sticking if I'm coming to your district

Hurry quick honey dip,
Come and hold my money clip
Ain't no need to throw a fit
If there ain't nothing in it
Sure as a mole got a hole I got another bill fold
The only rings I bestow are made of cigarette smoke

Well depose my witness
These hoes got wishes of their own
That's rich I done told y'all hypocrites
Hoes are just witches with
Ring fingers that's hungry for gold
Well tell us something we don't already know

Well fold my britches
These hoes got ISSUES of their own
That's rich I done told y'all hypocrites
Hoes are just witches with
Ring fingers that's hungry for gold
That ain't nothing WE don't already know

Before I settled into my HGTV Lobotomy I just had to let yall know
Before I faded away into obscurity I got to let yall know
Before I wander out into traffic, I just got to let you know
Before I climb down onto the tracks to relax I just got to let yall know

Well depose my witness
These hoes got wishes of their own
That's rich I done told y'all hypocrites
Hoes are just witches with
Ring fingers that's hungry for gold
tell us something we don't already know

Well fold my britches
These hoes, they've got issues of their own
That's rich I done told y'all hypocrites
Hoes are just witches with
Ring fingers that's hungry for gold, but
That ain't nothing you don't already know

IT'S AN EARLY GRAVE TRADE YOU MAKING, BEST TO GET SPRUNG

Bobby Trendy Addendum

Written By: Passage

I prayed for height, but they gave me width
The apple of my mother's eye even if they convict
The rudest unemployed apartment wrecking bum with a mouth,
The most oblivious neurotic modest goy on the couch, but

I'm a get it, like Joan and Melissa got it, don't sweat it
try to boil my meta data, search and destroy my sweater,
smash my mask back in the trash of my second life
I take second look and lift the whistle to my laughing lips

Joan and Melissa stand and deliver
Bobby Trendy's hairless severed
Fendi bag in an icy chalice of Chivas
Give us just enough language to
Become instantly famous and a
Pony every birthday regardless of our behavior

Got a particular staccato that I walk down the stairs with
I got to hurry just to get my affairs met,
But always it seems like there's a chair in the fast lane,
A lizard like guest host, the world for his ash tray

We want
Bobby Trendy's bendy body sent free with
Bargain phony Fendi juicy delicious
sappy endings, appetites lashed to the hood of the Bentley

We want
Bobby Trendy's bendy body sent free with
Bargain phony Fendi juicy delicious
sappy endings, appetites lashed to the hood of the Bentley

Every mad money lord of the dance policy maker
Bullies news junkies once in a while just to feel safer
If you're mortified by the mortar fire on the news at five
There's more to buy Now run a diagnostic check
Get hit with the sitcom stress Pick up your telephone
Receive the triple artificial miracles of network wit

The broadcast butchers put your mamas in the oven with a
Chicken in a duck up in a pig inside of simon cowl
Stuffed inside them now,
You're powerless against the wardrobe fortress
Bored, tortured and tired of channel surfing

This David diva downer
don't know how to throw a party
he'll most likely throw a penny or a hex
at the announcer
you best never turn your back
He charm a snake or
Weave a basket
Fuck aTempurpedic mattress
He don't even pay his taxes

still he want
Bobby Trendy's bendy body sent free with
Bargain phony Fendi juicy delicious
sappy endings, appetites lashed to the hood of the Bentley

He want
Bobby Trendy's bendy body sent free with
Bargain phony Fendi juicy delicious
sappy endings, appetites lashed to the hood of the Bentley

It's the disconnected fiend pre-dynastic master me seemingly
Attached with red and white tipped jacks to channel three,
And all the tools you really need are a can of gasoline
And a flare for the dramatic should you wish to meet with me

Roll me in flower and browse on your desktop,
You'll find my untitled, shiny, silver, circular wet spot
Placenta picnic inhospitable lip locked dick lick
Laughing at a wooden leg at the rest stop
Speaking of which, this speech is weak on my lips,
But I can do it deep as druids just as rude and as slick

I can rule the retired
You can root for the winner
You can chop it up with champions
And care for a fire, but it's

The loneliest prime time cream in your jeans time slot
Checking out a party, with the prize in your blind spot
Not without resentment for another man's high tops
The finer thing in life is always yours not what I got,

We want
Bobby Trendy's bendy body sent free with
Bargain phony Fendi juicy delicious
sappy endings, appetites lashed to the hood of the Bentley

We want
Bobby Trendy's bendy body sent free with
Bargain phony Fendi juicy delicious
sappy endings, appetites lashed to the hood of the Bentley

Pick It Up Drop It

Written By: Passage

You drop it just to pick it up
You pick it up just to drop it
Drop it
Drop it

It's the arcade coin operated organism
It's controlled by a stick
It's got a mouth with no lips
where the prize is dispensed
the middle class got a prince, but
He's doubled over with laughter
Once It's granted his wish

The claw machine dream
Weaves huggable plush stuffies
in supernatural color
on a quarter from your mother

crowded in the cage looking hungry and abused,
You grab for them, you get them, you lose them and feel confused

Every so many turns, an increased
Success rate will temporarily level
your chances of getting paid and
the claw the toy crane
getting machine game
will tighten the grip strength
and raise the prize

wait

It's a hail mary of outrage,
the basic motor reflex of a
Sucker don't want to admit that
He's been played

It builds a junky to think broken
He's open to start shopping
the claw's is a heart stolen
Focus on not stopping

The customer's dissatisfied
The parking lot is paranoid
Bargain hunters flinching like
spousal abuse veterans, just
Reacting to the sound of the
Public announcement system

If there are toys in the machine, we've got no animal control

But I'm going to settle this problem right
I'm going up in the plexiglas cell and I'm staying the night

You never felt so shameless
At home with strip mall royalty
With the boy in the colorful stuffed toy bubble nativity
Mother was so surprised she snapped her thighs shut
Like she was closing her eyes tight and
bad lighting be sucked she went for the point and shoot,
She shot my cave dive dash into the black hatch
Fainted and flushed

WE are coin coin operated organisms
we destroy joy making these unpleasant decisions
WE are coin coin operated organisms
we destroy joy making these unpleasant decisions

you drop it, drop it just to pick it up up
yeah you pick it up up just to drop it, just drop it
you drop it, drop it just to pick it up up
yeah you pick it up up just to drop it, just drop it
you drop it, drop it just to pick it up
yeah you pick it up, pick it up, you pick it up, up

The machine spoke a spell so sweet and revealed much
I sunk my elbow deep in the chute to retrieve plush
Fuck this slow ride round a gold pole
The mall's trashed, the miniature carousel is wack and
I'm an old soul I eat the whole thing
In the frenzy just to retrieve my prize I spilled my cold drink

The massive trapped by the spectacle that ensued is
was a crowd of faux concern
Dressed in vest blues

Think I'm going to give up after thirty seconds of game play?
just watch a mother fucker get famous in front of safe way
I'm in a rush but I don't want to break the spell, now
How am I going to fit up in this plexiglas cell

I see a box full of toys I've got to get inside
I put my arm in the hatch cause I was mesmerized
Now I'm screaming for my second life
Waiting for the gentle knife
Hoping that these people
Cut me out before tonight

you drop it, drop it just to pick it up up
yeah you pick it up up just to drop it, just drop it
you drop it, drop it just to pick it up up
yeah you pick it up up just to drop it, just drop it
you drop it, drop it just to pick it up
yeah you pick it up up

we're brain banging the coin slot toy trap machine while
the daughter of the automat's collecting for the silver screen
You need a single rubber robot sealed inside a plastic bubble
Or your little devil's guaranteed to breed all types of trouble

the mind fuck destroyer like a lover estranged
might let you win a couple rounds just to drive you insane,
yeah the mind fuck destroyer is no longer a game
it's your employer and
Its claw is just a lawyer it's tamed

WE see coin on top of coin outside the strip mall's stacked
We might be satisfied, one thing's for certain, we're silly strapped
Look in at the toy village lottery ticket holders hanging,
they mashing on the claw game
Careless til they drop it, Jeffrey-Jamming on the joysticks
Cheeks suddenly moistening
Playing make believe with a new friend named disappointment

you drop it, drop it just to pick it up up
yeah you pick it up up just to drop it, just drop it
you drop it, drop it just to pick it up up
yeah you pick it up up just to drop it, just drop it
you drop it, drop it just to pick it up
yeah you pick it up, pick it up, you pick it up, up

Interactive Halloween Bear

Written By: Passage

IT'S CATASTROPHICALLY RUDE
TO WINK AT THE SUN
WITH LIKE A SEED OR STAR OR SOMETHING
STARTING UNDER YOUR TONGUE
THE labyrinth of NATURAL HISTORY
ON MY PALMS snakes direct INTO MY TV/VCR
MY ANIMAL SKIN AND MY VHS TAPE
HANG IN LIT WOODS LIKE A FRACTAL
GETTING SLEEPY, SIT OR BE PRICKED
CHOOSE THE CHAIR OR CHOOSE THE CACTUS
YOUR THRONE FOR A TOUR WITH THE BIRDS
A PICTURE OF OUR DINNER IN THE WINDOW
MERELY ASSURES OF A NICE PLACE TO EAT
WHERE AM I GOING THAT I'VE GOT TO DRIVE THROUGH
WHAT ARE THEY FIXING THAT THEY'VE GOT TO SCOOP
THE STREET OUT ALL NIGHT
THEY MUST BE DIGGING FOR THE SOURCE OF SOME
LETHALLY EVIL FORCE
like food buried alive in the fridge stinking up
the dream that we actually live

THIS TRAIN IS TENSE
The PANIC STARTS MAKING SENSE
That's when you have your interactive
halloween bear accident
I RUN IN THE FAMILY
I SUMMON MY COUSINS NEAR ME
LIKE DEARLY BELOVED SPIRITS
I KNOW FROM THE CEMETERY
THEY LIGHT UP MY CEREMONY
WITH RUM FROM THE WEEPING CEILING
THEY DEAL IN FORBIDDEN METALS
TOO HEAVY FOR ME TO CARRY
I SWEAT VOTIVE DEATH ACID
I HANG FROM THE SWING SET GALLOWS
THE MYTH IN ME ISN'T MISSING
IT'S LINKED TO A PHONY SHADOW
MY FORTUNE TELLS OF NO MAGIC
I'M VOODOO TOO CLOSE TO SABBATH
WHEN THE DROP OUT PULLS THE LEVER
THE CRISP CONNECTION IS SEVERED

Forced CONFESSION AIN'T SO BAD
I GO WHERE I LIKE OH YEAH
HANG ME LIKE YOU FLY A FLAG
I KNOW WHO I AM OH YEAH

Forced CONFESSION AIN'T SO BAD
I GO WHERE I LIKE OH YEAH
HANG ME LIKE YOU FLY A FLAG
I KNOW WHO I AM OH YEAH

YEAH

THE GANG SPEAKS SATURDAY NIGHT
OUT THE FACE OF DEATH,
I EITHER CHANGE OR DIE
MY BODY FOUND BOUND BEHIND THE CHEVRON
MY LOVE A MOST IRREVERENT
FLICKERING CARTOON FLAME FROM AN ANTACID COMMERCIAL
HERE'S A TWO FOR ONE DEAL, LOVE'S VIOLENT
THOUGHTLESS, RAPE CRAZED, LIGHT BENDING
GRIEF GIVING, NAVIGATOR RIDING BRIDE-SLICING SUPER CITIZEN
I TELL YOU BUDDY THESE ARE THE DAYS OF MIRACLE AND BLUNDER
NO SMALL WONDER WE SWEEP THE MALL WITH THE
MENTION OF MURDER
AND IT'S A LONG DISTANCE CALL FROM THE MASSACRE AT CHUCK NORRIS HALL
THE INSTITUTION IS LICKING ITS BRICK WALLS

So WARN THE TOWN THE BEAST IS LOOSE, THE HEDONIST
THE REASON FOR HIM LEAVING waSN'T EVEN THE JUICE
he's just
AMUSED TO DEATH AND
STANDING PERFECTLY STILL
THE STATUE BARBECUES MY BRAINS
ON THE USUAL GRILL
THE KIDNAPPER has crushed
his OLD CHRISTMAS DEVIL FOREVER
THE BUTTERFLY MASTER GENERAL'S A
PHOTOGENIC SUBMISSIVE RECYCLED
POPCORN GODZILLA
WITH REAPER REPELLANT TEE SHIRT
a PUSSY pathetic detail to look for in his
NOVELLA

BIG AS IT IS, CAN'T FIND THE GOOD IN ALL THINGS
IT'S THE BEAT BENEATH THAT BETRAYS YOU
YOUR HERO'S HEARTrate IN CLOSE QUARTERS IS
MAJOR, IT'S THE BEAT BENEATH THAT BETRAYS YOU
SO

LOOK UP AT THE SKY AND SQUINT
AT WILD ANNUAL EVENTS
WONDER WHERE YOUR BODY WENT
THE CULT HAS REACHED A FEVER PITCH

Forced CONFESSION AIN'T SO BAD
I GO WHERE I LIKE OH YEAH
HANG ME LIKE YOU FLY A FLAG
I KNOW WHO I AM OH YEAH

LOOK UP AT THE SKY AND SQUINT
AT WILD ANNUAL EVENTS
WONDER WHERE YOUR BODY WENT
THE CULT HAS REACHED A FEVER PITCH

Forced CONFESSION AIN'T SO BAD
I GO WHERE I LIKE OH YEAH
HANG ME LIKE YOU FLY A FLAG
I KNOW WHO I AM OH YEAH

LOOK UP AT THE SKY AND SQUINT
AT WILD ANNUAL EVENTS
WONDER WHERE YOUR BODY WENT
THE CULT HAS REACHED A FEVER PITCH

Forced CONFESSION AIN'T SO BAD
I GO WHERE I LIKE OH YEAH
HANG ME LIKE YOU FLY A FLAG
I KNOW WHO I AM OH YEAH

Opulent Soul

Written By: Passage

I'm staring with the fury of a hurricane
that could bend your body back like a palm tree
at the hi def dead end static of house dollars,
Deflowered I drift aimless on deep, wicked waves of
basic cable daytime prison's my favorite
my body is a television already famous

I'm lapping up the up the golden souled celebrity scripture,
I figure while I'm up I might as well adjust the picture
I'm a fly boy, cake white teeth like a steak knife
looking like a latter day saint in the right light

there's uptown jittery money on the line but I'm too wise
To look out at the city with news eyes

This price volatility can't wear me out
the cowbell's ring doesn't bring me down
my stacks of loot arrive now by armored car
no remixed sweet sixteen party show compares, once
I've spoken on the phone and combed my hair

I ain't a vampire with his rent controlled
I don't eat the rich and test crash the trash soul
I got ten million dollars on the fastest pony
I'm a drop it in the basket with my testimony

Nobody is anybody now
We're watching snow as a family
truly balanced and bright
the opulent soul isn't empty at all
it's church voice is daring like there's no
Man involved

Nobody is anybody now
We're watching snow as a family
truly balanced and bright
the opulent soul isn't empty at all
it's check book is daring like there's no
Man involved

In my fantasy I'm always up for early release
Time and money might have finally found their place
Why not we can't afford a minute to talk
our water won't ever boil while we're watching the pot
the minute i quit trying I'm a spring the lock
Then I'll bookmark the money where the garbage stop

The preceding was paid programming where
anything goes It certainly don't represent the views of
your favorite shows, but let it ring out in your thinking
like a tubular bell, then bring the mallet down
to land a crashing blow to your skull

And when you're finished letting cheddar put a cramp in your style
You leave your worries in the toilet and you fish out a smile
Retrieve your lotus blossom from the hot impossible heap
You walk as free as a commercial, what a sense of relief!

Best believe that the cartoon is lunacy
and it's juicy with violence and nudity
soon redundant, obscure comedy
is more appealing than a woman's warm womb can be

Round and round goes the collection plate and
ain't defeat a wicked virus, how it lives to repeat
No doubt, but
If it ain't rough it's just puppet to me
It ain't a real boy that suffers with its guts on the screen

I GOT A LONG LIST OF CRITICISM FOR MY SUPERIORS
that I hoist like a heater from the holster of my hero
With a dream in mind of meter-less convenient street parking
I feed a coin to the computer put my head down keep walking

This price volatility can't wear me out
the cowbell's ring doesn't bring me down
my stacks of loot arrive now by armored car
no remixed sweet sixteen party show compares, once
I've spoken on the phone and combed my hair

My live flesh is impatient like a
Ballet of rapists
I'm a silent decoy of
sweet sensation
I chase my orders up and down a vacant hallway
there's a vapor there my body won't tolerate

there's a rat up a tree too high for me to trap it
I reach into the belly of the beast for beauty assets
with sculpted, younger looking faces abundant
Love is too much the stuff of a comedy puppet

Word is junk bond
They cake the gunk on
rather than looking lady like
I takes the dump on their
MARBLE PLAYTHINGS AND PLATINUM HAIRCUTS
Knock myself out before I gas the air duct

With every dirty stone washed flag I fold
Cash registers pain in my sidewalk soul,
I just sprang the lock on my daddy's old strong box
Found only the key and I don't know where the song stops

The stars are my government
smooth how i rub it in
I'm pissed and I'm loving it
Don't see where the trouble is

When Ty says move that bus,
it just cleans my ducts, What kind of miracle
will make over make of my luck

I'm judge, jury and executioner to a hoax and
I find the yuppie guilty, she butchered a dirty joke
I'm a duck out for a cigarette while sentence is pronounced
One cruel lash at a time my crime is coming out

I'M FEELIN statuesque as a tough new law
My fake justice hard enough to break your teeth on
I'm milk shake soft you could suck ME through a straw
YOU COULD choke on your broke teeth and forget what you saw

If the mall is gonna melt, it'll smoke us out
The cross cannibal crowd can't protect itself
I'm in the house of fractions before twinkling oakland
hand fucking myself into the great wide open

Nobody is anybody now
We're watching snow as a family
truly balanced and bright
the opulent soul isn't empty at all
it's church voice is daring like there's no
Man involved

Nobody is anybody now
We're watching snow as a family
truly balanced and bright
the opulent soul isn't empty at all
it's check book is dari

Written By: Passage

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHEN
EVERYTHING INSIDE THE CAGE IS INOPERABLE
THANK YOU AMERISCAN
WAS IT TREATMENT PLANT OR TEFLON PAN
IT'S THE SIZE OF MY HAND AND IT'S SPREADING
THANK YOU AMERISCAN
AS KNOW I KNOW WHEN
NOW I KNOW WHEN TO GET MY KEMO ON

THE FACTS WILL RUBBISH ALL MY LIVING
RIGHT HAND'S LITTLE CRICKETS
A BIT OF A DREAM SPOILED MY CARNIVAL PARTS
I'M AS FREE AS A CREATURE WITH NO MOUTH AND NO FEET
ON THE SLEEVE OR ARM OR HAND THAT'LL WIN EVERY WEEK
AND I'VE BEEN SET INTO MOTION LIKE A WHEEL IN THE STREET
I'M A WHEEL IN THE STREET
A WHEEL IN THE STREET
WHEEL IN THE STREET
I'M A WHEEL IN THE STREET
A WHEEL IN THE STREET
A WHEEL IN THE STREET
A WHEEL IN THE STREET

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW
WHAT'S UP WITH YOUR LYMPH NODES
AND LUNGS THAT LOOK LIKE LEATHER WALLETS
THERE'S POLIPS ALL UP INSIDE AND ALONG
YOUR UPSIDE DOWN, GIANT SWOLLEN COLON'S WALL
SO THANK YOU AMERISCAN
AS NOW I KNOW WHEN
NOW I KNOW WHEN TO GETS MY KEMO ON

CANCER OWES THE PARANOIAC
CORONARY CANCELLED LAWYER
A HUNDRED SHARP SHOOTERS IN
HIS RIB CAGE SHOOTING SHARP PAINS
IN AS MANY DIRECTIONS
IT'S COLD ON HIS NECK
HIS SWEAT'S LIKE ICE
AND I'M LIKE WAIT A MINUTE
THIS IS IT, I KNOW IT'S IN ME AND IN IT
SUDDENLY LOSING MY MEMORY BECOMES
SIGNIFICANT
I DON'T WANT TO KNOW, BUT I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO
TELL ME ANY WAY
I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
