"The Pet Goat" Lyrics

Lonely Old Soul

When I was younger, I listened to what mama said
Hold out for true love and donít be so easily led
I closed my eyes to imagine a vision so fine
Now that Iím older I feel like Iíve wasted my time

Will I be waiting the rest of my life ?

Iím lonely Iím lonely, Iíma lonely old soul
Find my true love before I get old
Sheís one in a million, a heart pure as gold
Lonely Iím lonely, Iíma lonely old soul

Thereís something better than being alone

When I was younger, I learned how to tell wrong from right
Then they made me into a robot and forced me to fight
Pick up this rifle, go out find your enemies, KILL!
Now that Iím older I find that Iíve had all my fill

Will I be fighting the rest of my life?

Chorus

Sheís held prisoner by pixels of light on a screen
Killing is fine, but acts of love are obscene
Build up the tension, direct all that violence on me
The beast is growing, on hatred and ignorance it feeds

Will I be fighting the rest of my life?

Chorus
Love means sacrifice, love means release


Chemical Girl

I met her on a Wednesday
Upstairs at Kimoís
One beer was the price of a lapdance
For John the Baker and me
So we took her back to the East Bay
Where a freakshow was in effect
A watermellon between her legs
And the taste of her on my lips

Everytime you call me up,
YOU'RE STRUNG OUT AND LOADED UP AGAIN!
Chemicals inside your head,
YOU'RE STRUNG OUT AND LOADED UP AGAIN!
YOU'RE STRUNG OUT AND LOADED UP AGAIN!
YOU'RE STRUNG OUT AND LOADED UP AGAIN!

She moved into my apartment
And I thought that this was love
The time we spent making out
I was praisiní the stars above
Then She came home late one night
After being away for a week
She fucked a stranger in my bed
I thought Iíd go insane

Chorus / Breakdown

Days and nights go by,
I wonder where you are
Then you call me from a city mental ward
Oh chemical girl whyíd you go and break my heart?
I should have seen it coming, right out from the start.

Chorus (3/4)

Ill Gotten Gains

The deal tree gives no shelter,
to the drowned and drunken Sailor
In his final hour of wretched life
He begs to ask Godís favor
As Science is our worship The flowers have all gone
A bright and pleasant autumn day
to make deathís journey on.

Ill Gotten Gains, Ill Gotten Gains
All my miseries are .... ILL GOTTEN GAINS!

The corpse you planted in your ground
Will soon begin to sprout
Cast your stones at dying fools
To drive the demons out
Oh! cursed metal savior,
How can you know the cost?
This final scene I will not see
Wake up the dream is lost

(chorus)(solo)

Every manís a sinner, Every manís a saint,
Mostly men just spending time, Tryín to beiní what they ainít,
I fought for my delusions
I suffered for my loves
I canít return, so keep my name
Among those dead with guns

(chorus 2x)

Orpheus

There once was a maiden,
so fine and so fair
I loved her as dearly,
though the fates did not care
She was taken from me,
for her honor she bled
The bite of a viper,
so to the land of the dead

Down! Down to Hell!
Rescue you - you my love

The three headed Cerebus,
with music be soothed
Allowing my passage,
through the darkness and gloom
I sang out to Hades,
Ďtill he gave her new breath
In a moment of weakness,
she was borne back to death

Down! Down to Hell!
Rescue you - you my love



Everything is F.U.N.

An ill wind blows in from the ocean
Itís raging out from mother nature on humanity
So go hide in your fallout shelter
It makes no difference,
if the sun wonít shine we all shall die
Theyís a planniní for a nuclear war
Sayiní everything is foretold
Just because the Bible tells us so
Humans are entitled to rape

EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG!
EVERYTHING IS FUCKED UP NOW!

Iím lookiní out on the horizon
I see what happens when the truth becomes the enemy
So go hide in your fallout shelter
It makes no difference, if the sun wonít shine
we all shall die

EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG!
EVERYTHING IS FUCKED UP NOW!
EVERYTHING IS FUCKED UP NOW!

React, React, React, React - No time left to think it over
Decide, Decide, Decide, Decide - Make your mind or you will follow
Debate Debate Debate, Debate - Would you rather be liviní in a military state
Survive, Survive, Survive, Survive - Rats inside your brain divided
Nostradamus and David Koresh Revalations is oh so fresh!
Just because the Bible tells us so!

EVERYTHING IS FUCKED UP NOW!

Truth is not the enemy - Would you rather be dead, would you rather be free?
Debate Debate Debate, Debate - Would you rather be liviní in a military state
Truth is not the enemy - Would you rather be dead, would you rather be free?
Debate Debate Debate, Debate - Would you rather be liviní in a military state?


Die for Oil!

Long ago in the days when hippies roamed the Earth
Theyíd talk about the joys of life and rebirth
Theyíd protest the war with flowers in their hair
Now look around you wonít find them anywhere
Theyíre gone diga dig dig dig to an early grave
Or they work ticka tic tic tic as a corporate slave
Driviní round dicka dic dic dic in their S U Vís
Watchiní lies diga dic dic dic on the big T Vís

Die for Oil tic tic tic tic tic Tragedy!
Die for Oil tica tica tica tica tica Sucker!

The hunger for oil grows louder every day
Itís in our best interest but we donít have a say
Eight thousand dead from nuclear waste
The glory of war leaves a bitter taste
Times will change ticka tic tic tic but they stay the same
Time we learn licka lic dic dic the rules of the game
Go and die diga dig dic dic for the economy
Go and die diga dic dic dic itís good for the country

Chorus

The TV says itís war today - And we do what weíre told
They tell us thereís no other way - And we do what weíre told
Itís time to end our childrensí play - And just as we are told
Itís time to cast our lives away - And do what we are told
GO DIE! GO DIE! GO DIE! DIE YOU SUCKER!
DIE FOR OIL! DIE FOR GREED! DIE FOR MONEY! JUST DIE!!

If you want it that bad, why donít you go and get it?
Instead you send children to die for it
If you want it so bad, why donít you fight for oil?
Instead you send our children to die for it.
If you want it so bad, why donít you go and get it?
Instead you send the innocent to die for oil.


Vampires in Space

Itís time to test your religion
Step up to test your faith
When you ainít got nobody
You canít express your hate

The best years are behind us
Itís time to pay the price
A toxic sludge hangover
A plague of rats and mice

I live and then I die
No one seems to understand
I canít believe the lie
Bow down to the Man

Vampires in space
Vampires in space
You canít avoid the human race
Itís crawliní everywhere

You borrow on your beauty
What do you truly own?
When they have sucked your lifeblood
You must repay the loan

I live and then I die
No one seems to understand
I canít believe the lie
Bow down to the Man

Vampires in space
Vampires in space
You canít avoid the human race
Itís crawliní everywhere
You canít resist the human taste
Itís calliní for ya now



"Shadows Rise" Lyrics

Money Rules the World

If youíre like me youíve got a problem
The drugs they give me ainít no good
Doctors say they know the answers
Now I see theyíre full of shit
Money man a Money man it rules out reason
Salivate when the bell goes ding
Voices say theyíre out to get me
Put me away for my own good

Donít you try to tell me, You know whatís best for me

If youíre like me youíve always noticed
How badly our societyís fucked
They say we live in a land of freedom
But you better watch out what you say
Lock emí up, lock em up and make em sorry
For taking on the status quo
Because they donít like my opinion
They take away my right to speak

Donít you try to tell me, You know whatís best for me

Money rules the world - and ya better face the facts
Money rules the world - and we got no voice
Money rules the world - they donít give a fuck what we say
Money rules the world - Money rules the world!

If you arenít getting with the program
Theyíll lock you away from society
Theyíll put you in an institution
They teach you how to think and feel
Money man a Money man if you ainít got none
Then you ainít got no liberty
If youíre poor then you get no justice
In death is the only equality

Donít you try to tell me, You know whatís best for me
Money rules the world...

Enemy

Iím running in my dreams, Iím running from my fears
They never leave my head, They never give me peace

I wanna remember, I wanna forget, The time I spent with you
Iím caught in a whirlpool of love and regret, I canít get over you

Nothing isnít anything and thatís just what you mean to me
Trouble with the universe is now you donít belong to me
Youíre not coming home tonight, youíre sleeping with the enemy

What do you want from me? You know Iíll give to you
Thereís pleasure and thereís pain And everything in between

I wanna remember, I wanna forget, The time I spent with you
Iím caught in a whirlpool of love and regret, I canít get over you

Nothing isnít anything and thatís just what you mean to me
Trouble with the universe is now you donít belong to me
Youíre not coming home tonight, youíre sleeping with the enemy

Iím glad youíve moved on with your life
I wish there was something for me too
This emptiness, This emptiness, This emptiness, This emptiness
Am I to blame for losing you? Am I to blame for losing you?
Thereís anti-hope and anti-love, anti-hope and anti-love
Thereís sour grapes and bitter tears
This emptiness, This emptiness, This emptiness, This emptiness
Am I to blame for losing you?

Iím running in my dreams
Iím running from my fears
They never leave my head
They never give me peace

I wanna remember I wanna forget
The time I spent with you
Iím caught in a whirlpool of love and regret
I canít get over you

Nothing isnít anything and thatís just what you mean to me
Trouble with the universe is now you donít belong to me
Youíre not coming home tonight, youíre sleeping with the enemy

More Cash/More Speed

Got more money than I know what to do with
More that a new car and less than a country club
Stashed all away in a moldy old mattress
Hanginí in a corner of my one room apartment

Everytime I think of the taste of your lemonade
Makes me aware of the things that I wanna change
Get a new name, new job, new identity
Trade it all in for a face lift symmetry

Well I donít wanna go to work
And I donít wanna go to school
And I donít wanna live in society
Cuz everyone is stupid, everyone is stupid
and everyone looks at me....
Like Iím one of THEM!

Iím floating in another soft nightmare
MORE CASH! MORE SPEED! MOREON!
The walkiní dead and the walking wounded
MORE CASH! MORE SPEED! MOREON!

Got a song that I wanted to sing you
More lines than I ever coulda memorize
If I wasnít dumb than I wouldnít be me
And If I wasnít smart than Iíd have a good day job

Canít seem to shake that smelly old feeling
Sort of like a stain that keeps reappearing
If Iím at home then I wanna be out drinking
If Iím at a bar then I wind up broke

Chorus

Well, backup I lost my way
I thought I had another option
Something about a choice
Like how the Hell to live my life

Well I thought it was okay
For me to express my opinion
Now Iím locked away
Behind a mask of indifference

Chorus

Do You Wanna Die?

Iím liviní this life, but I donít know why
Everybody hates me and I wanna die
Whatever I do seems to fall apart
And every lover leaves me with a broken heart

Itís not like I ever had that much to lose
But I find myself wanting, pills and booze!
My lifeís a joke and my jobís a drag
My only relief comes from an eighth ounce bag

So do you wanna die, do you wan be set free?
And leave this trouble that never leaves me
Thereís a girl I want, and sheíll never be mine
Cause Iím a failure at everything every time

Well thereís enough to pay the bills and nothing more
Now if you got no green then youíll never score
Iím so pathetic I canít stand to live
And the world wants more than I have to give

Well hari kariís better than a life of pain
Iíd kill myself if I wasnít so lame
A gun is a god to deliver me
From this life I hate and this world that hates me

So do you wanna die, do you wan be set free?
And leave this trouble that never leaves me
Thereís a girl I want, and sheíll never be mine
Cause Iím a failure at everything every time

Disease

Hereís the pit that Iím falling into
Contagion junk superfly
Sell myself for a pound a quarter
Nowís the time for shooting junk on a stick

I love your tasty box babe
I love you prefab hair
Everything is getting clearer
Why donít you fuck yourself in the mirror

Disease - is crawling through me
Disease - I got from you
Disease - It wonít even kill me
Disease - I got from you

Now thereís nothing left to hold sacred
Everythingís got a price attached
Give me head and Iíll give you a twenty
Round the world for the luxury fix

Now what can you expect dear
Now what do you expect
Iíve got nothing to lose, so
Iím gonna - give it to you

Disease - is crawling through me...

Karma cool daddy-o what ya holdiní?
Need some smack, need some crank, need some blow
My machine is primed for action
Stick it in, get it off, pull it out

Now what can you expect dear...

Disease - is crawling through me...

Heaven

Well Iím a good catholic boy, I get down on my knees
I worship for Jesus, he fills all my needs
Heís my God and Savior, Itís not mine to tell
Iím going to heaven, youíre going to hell

So say youíre pagan - Youíre Allahís child
Youíll get damnation - Youíll get the fire
Thereís no one waiting - To catch your fall
Feel the fahrenheit - original recepie or extra crispy

Oneís born every minute, thereís room for one more
Iím just a tourist, a corporate whore
Go to church on Sunday, go to work each day
The Devil must have cursed me cause my daughter turned out gay

So say youíre pagan - Youíre Allahís child
Youíll get damnation - Youíll get the fire
Thereís no one waiting - To catch your fall
Feel the fahrenheit - original recepie or extra crispy

Keep away, yr different from me
Keep away, your nose is too large
Keep away, I canít pronounce your name
Keep away, I donít want what you got
Keep away, mineís the one true god
Keep away, you got some kinda disease
Keep away, youíre a queer
Keep away, yr different from me!

Only way to get to heaven, only way to get to heaven is mine!
So say yr pagan...
Only way to get to heaven, only way to get to heaven is mine!

Oblivion

Kitty kitty with the suicide sunbeam,
I can tell youíre not from around here
Have you ever known a love that could kill you
Have you ever held a life in your hands
Iím alive lookiní for something, I canít find within myself
Electricity out from you body
Bends my will to whatever you want - whatever you want

Iím living in oblivion - now itís my mind thatís got to go
May I have another fix to see me on my way?

Repetition gets me so tired, Day by day dragginí me down
Auto pilot switch to engage me
Chase the carrot at the end of the rope

Playing games in my own subconscious
Catch a wave baby, crash and burn
Reinvent myself for each person
Looking at you like youíre looking at me - who ya lookiní at

Iím living in oblivion - now itís my mind thatís got to go
May I have another fix to see me on my way?

Canít be late - gotta cut rate, move it along - dump it on the third world
Make my way - every day, gotta get along - danciní to the new beat
Go with the flow - canít go slow, catch my breath - be back in a minute
Keep the pace - stay in the race, mind your place - and donít fall DOWN
Cause itís a long way down...from here, from here

Kitty kitty with the suicide sunbeam, you got no reason to fear me
Have you ever known a love that could kill you?
Have you felt anything at all?
I want to release your desire, Suck your soul in the back of my car
Forget about the world and itís problems
I got the cure for the hell that youíre in...This hell called life

Iím living in oblivion - now itís my mind thatís got to go
May I have another fix to see me on my way?

My Words

Youíre gonna hold my words against me
Youíre gonna bring me to my knees
Youíre gonna spend up all my money
Youíre gonna give me your disease
Youíre gonna bring me to my knees
Youíre gonna give me your disease

Our world is headiní for disaster
Now everything is black and white
Youíll find your servant is your master
Now everything is wrong and right
Now everything is black and white
Now everything is wrong and right

Now I bet you think that Iím a bastard
Now I bet you think that Iím a jerk
Now I bet you think that Iím a loser
Now everything is wrong and right
Now everything is black and white
Now everything is wrong and right

Retard (I'm A Special Person)

Why are you looking at me?
Is something wrong with my face?
Is there something thatís all screwed up?
Is there something out of place?

I got my own way of seeing
It is no better or worse
Theyíre gonna give me a list of problems
and tell me that I am cursed

I fall but they wonít catch me
They hit the back my skull
My bones are always breaking
My mind - they say is dull

I try to answer the questions
I try to fill in the blanks
Donít know what they want me to tell them
Donít know how Iím síposed to think

I am alone with my problems
I am alone with my fate
I am alone in being special
Cause I donít even rate

I fall but they wonít catch me...

I want out of this body
I want out of this life
Thereís no one who will listen
Gonna cut me - with a knife

Now thereís a reason for living
Now thereís a reason to be
As long a I take my medication
Iím happy to be me

Donít tell me that I am special
Donít tell me that I am wrong
Donít tell me that Iíve got a problem
My problem has gone

I fall but they wonít catch me...
I want out of this body...
