Track Name: Cruel
at mountain tops
I gain relief
by distancing myself
from my tow n grief

and farther out
is outer space
with unimaginable happenings
just taking place...

I can be cruel
as cruel to you as I am to me
I can be cruel
as cruel to you as I am to me...

and when I need it
there's outer space
beautiful baby
are you taking place?
can you take me away?

cause I can be cruel
as cruel to you
as I am to me I can be cruel
as cruel to you
as I am to me...
and when I need it
there's outer space.....
Track Name: L.A. 101
heading southbound to L.A.
and the traffic's getting started
stop and go, merging lanes
smoggy sky
the smell of it reigns.

vibrations gained
by the texture of the pavement
shaking straight to those parts
with the aid of the press of my
hand
and I notice blank stares
on bored drivers
as my own intensity rises
steady at the wheel
steady at the wheel...

LA 101 so off and disturbing
LA 101 do they know
what they're missing?

so I'm moving through LA
and my exit's getting closer
crusted paint makes its limp
stating "Vineland"
on dirty green
flesh sticking to my seat
breaking past points of
resistance.
but my timing is off as
I reach for the gear
with the man in the Porche
just beside me
should I take the risk of
attention drawn t o me?
or stay steady at the wheel
steady at the wheel...

LA 101
so off and disturbing
LA 101 do they know
what they're missing?

chorus of the engines sing
lack of passion in those voices
but it's there on the street
visual cries
graffiti.
cultures lost
suburbia
striking me with dries and empties...
silent fish in a pond
metal
glass
and you feel so alone
all your life you were told
to trust no one
not even yourself or your
loved ones
so you're steady at your own wheel
steady at your own, own.....

LA 101
so off and disturbing
LA 101 do they know?
LA 101
where are they going?
LA 101 do they know
what they're missing?
Track Name: Ynot
the telephone I must not dial
is like your birthday card I must not mail
because I'm trying to do what you do....
cut it off
start something new .

ynot my brother
i can't tell you how
don't you have something to say to me?
no one should stop it
they don't know us
will this theme catch up to you?

like looking back at 80's fashion
like observing insects in their heat of passion
it's ridiculous and strange
is it how my love for you will seem
once time has me change?

ynot my brother
I can't tell you how
don't you have something to say to me
no one should stop it
they don't know us
will this theme catch up to you?

Track Name: Fat
Please let me be
A whole song
Inspiration is yours
If you don't call me wrong

And love is so fat
It's gonna suffocate the rats
That brought you disease
And death and life
And death and life and death
And life.

Lovers in bliss illusion
Afraid to fart
You can't let that other see you
Without your make-up on

And love is so fat
It's going to suffocate the rats
Cause there's a deeper
A deeper, a deeper
Love

Hateful critics
Will try to intersect your flow
Their only wish is to stop you
From carrying out your song
So you better get fat
To suffocate the rats
It's going to take courage
To love
To love
To love yourself

And if you're not going to love me?
If you're not going to love me?
How are you gonna love
Anybody else?
Track Name: Her Fall (Of Jennifer)
She
Never saw me like this
And all my words
Never met her ears
And all th at I get to see
Can she see at all?

Cause when I lost you
I learned there were no guarantees at all
Cause when I lost you
I learned there were no guarantees
But all this time
I couldn't see
The anguish of your fall

She
I never understood her world
I was just hanging around
Trapped in her painful whirl
And all the anger
All the anger I've had to feel
She never had to take a grain of it

Cause woman when I lost you
I learned there were no g uarantees at all
Cause woman when I lost you?
Are there no? Are there no...
But all this time
I couldn't see
The anguish
Of your fall
