The Wonderstuff - Construction For The Modern Idiot ===================================== Change Every Light Bulb ------------------------------ "So good of you to come, I call on the priests, the saints, the dancing girls and the god damn reprobates. Our decisions must be final, restoration is impossible. To the ignorant members of the misguided populace, book-ends to nothing, good times on bad times, free us of the modern idiot, cast away the bogey men detonate your hate bombs, pick your victims, but take good care of yourselves......Hallelujah!" I have seen every mountain I'm expected to climb, but they're not mine. I have seen everything in this light before, change every light bulb in my house. I have heard, I have listened, I have understood for my own good ? I have seen everything in this light before, change every light bulb in my house. I Wish Them All Dead -------------------------- I wasn't ready for this, it isn't something you'd miss. I'm gonna spit every word, so that my hate can be heard. It's for the MBLA I wish them cancerous decay, that puts an end to their days. You know I wish them all dead, I wish them all dead. You know these fucks have the balls, to use municipal halls, to bring their shit into light. It's time to pick up a knife, or any weapon you like, to put an end to their lives, pick on someone your own size ! You know I wish them all dead, I wish them all dead. Go find relief in your graves, yours are not lives I would save, what will they ask of us next ? You know I wish them all dead, I wish them all dead..... Cabin Fever -------------- While mom's and dad's are screaming over string beans, it doesn't occur to them, they're sounding like two has beens. Political candidates are spitting kisses over babies, and Hollywood's still making heroes out of crazies. Rewind, backdate, leave your weapons at the gate, don't call me mate, I'll seal your fate, you work it out, but you're all too late. Kick out the windows, damn place is like a hot house, this cabin fever's got me spinning like a light house, there's nowhere to go but where you know. I don't want to, I don't need to. Give me something, I'll agree to. You're not funny, stuff your money. I couldn't tell you, all I've been through. That's all it takes, don't unwind me. Who's on the make? Get behind me. Hot Love Now ! -------------------- We are, we are romanced in fascination, sinfully sated in every incarnation, typically farcical in every situation, but look what you can do with a little imagination. Feeling like we've never felt, smelling like we've never smelt. If only the booze tasted as good as it felt, we'd be holding on to buckled belts for hot love now. We are, we are reeling in our feelings. In love we'll trust 'til we go bus, it's heavenly appealing. There's no sense in dressing up 'cos it's time to get revealing, and look at what you can do when you're swinging from the ceiling. Every painted puckered lip, every pouting nipple tip, every time I trip, you trip, we trip. Feeling like we've never felt, smelling like we've never smelt, here we come we don't need no help, we'd be holding on to buckled belts for hot love now, here they come now heaven knows, trying on their sisters clothes for hot love now ! Full Of Life (Happy Now) ------------------------------- When you shook that fist, did it feel like you were winning ? When you drew that blood, did you think you'd take the blame ? If you spoke up now, would you tell without the lying ? Or are the answers laced with lies to hide your pain ? Are you happy now ? Are you happy now ? Are you happy now ? When you hate that much, do you get in touch with your feelings ? Is there learning inside every broken bone ? Did it fire you up, did you get things done in your reeling ? Or did your hapless heart lay sunken like a stone ? Are you happy now ? Are you happy now ? Are you happy now ? Storm Drain --------------- So you wanna be liked, no I just wanna be safe. To have protection from rejection, interned without exception, there is fear within these eyes. I can't run but I can hide, no I can't run but I can..... Fit inside this world's disgrace, there are no words to illustrate, a marijuana trip away, confined all I had to say, to only watch it drift away. I don't wanna learn more, I'm already tired by things I'll never do. Inadequacies been disguised, ambitions have been pushed aside, there is fear within these eyes. I can't run but I can hide, no I can't run but I can..... There is a change in life, there are disguises to be worn, there is a change in life, there are disguises to be worn. I can fit inside this worlds disgrace, there are no words to illustrate, a marijuana trip away, confused the things that I would say, and I can watch it drift away and out of sight. There is no future half as bright, to know your hands have been untied, confessions have been realised and wipe the smoke out of my eyes. On The Ropes ----------------- Take these words and stick 'em in your head, now roll then round until you can't forget what's said, Take this time to lie about everything, about who you are and where you've been, don't let the world get in. It's happened to me, it won't happen to everyone. It don't give in, it will repeat, it will repeat, it will. And my central theme, barks like a dog in me. The modern idiot is here and plain to see. I can't kick aside, a kick inside. Call of the dogs, I won't admit I changed at all but lied just a little bit. Seconds out. Do you wanna know what this fights about ? Commerciality over art can't win out. I'm alike in a lot of ways. I'm alike in a lot of ways. Your Big Assed Mother ---------------------------- Oh what does she want, when she breaks down in front of me ? A piece of my mind or just some sympathy. Meanwhile I'm thinking but I won't say a word. They're not of mine she hangs on, just what's inside of her ? Not much, not much History comes around the corner see what's in front of me ? It's not for me or your big assed mother, to set you straight or tell you what to say. She set me up now I'm staked forever, I think you'll find you forced us both together. The baby won't sleep, it's not for me. Swell ------- In a word it's a dream, the way it's always been, and we're not giving back, no they're not taking it back. No consequences in dead presidents or pictures of the queen, the way it's always been, what can be the matter ? We're in love with everything, it's knowing quite where to begin, and I don't think things look that grim, 'cos we've never had it so, in love with everything, it's knowing quite where to begin, 'cos we've never had it so good. Where money's God and our's is not, we'll suffer sanity, and we're not taking it back, no they're not giving it back. Our God is lame, their bad is fame, it's just a circle game. That's regularity, what can the matter be ? Oh it's swell, it's swell. A Great Drinker ------------------- There's sweat on my finger tips, I got a belly full of beer shits, my head is too close to the wall. there's blood in my underwear, I don't know how I got it there, I swear I'd bust open my head should I fall. I know weaker personalities, 'cos they're sitting around my home with me. I've got an ever loving wife of a sort, there's a bottle and a half to go, don't ask me where 'cos I don't know at all. Sit right down, one for the road ? We don't stick it where it don't belong, we don't mend what ain't broken, and it's not because we're strung out on the sauce. I'm not picking up the pieces of a world that still increasingly just has to know my business. What is yours ? Well there's hate where my liver sits, I got cigarettes to pull to bits, I don't think too much it's bad for the soul. I got bottles for good company, a great drinker and his love could be ... Well of all the stupid things I've been told, they took my car. We don't stick it where it don't belong, we don't mend what ain't broken, and it's not because we're strung out on the sauce. I'm not picking up the pieces of a world that still increasingly just has to know my business. What is yours ? Get out if it's not for you, you stay here then you throw down too. If all the world would wait and see, the last drink's gonna be on me. Hush ------ If this is the prize, it feels like a threat. It hangs like a fist over my bed. So what are the odds, if this is a bet, and whose is that voice I can't forget ? How much did I find, how much did you give, how much was forced or intuitive ? Well who's got the gain, and what will remain, when there is a hush that I contain. I won't blow smoke up the asses of people I don't know. How many fractured instant senses, and how many yet to go. What are your worst fears, and where do they hide ? Here is that voice, beginning to shout. I'll drop like a stone if word gets out. It's never the hours that turn us into liars, but people, the people you spend them with. No you don't know my relatives, and that's as deep as you get in. No you don't know my relatives, and that's as deep as you get in. Sing The Absurd -------------------- If there was drug, that'd do me no harm, I'd stick it in a needle, and I'd feed it into my arm. But I'm old enough to know, old enough to know no no. Yeah I'm old enough to know, old enough to know no. I can reflect on the day's when respect, had nothing to do with behaviour, and I can recall a day when we'd all, laugh in the face of our failure. But I'm old enough to know, old enough to know no no. Yeah I'm old enough to know, old enough to know no no. And guess who just threw up, when we learned that he grew up . Yeah, yeah. And guess what I learned when my fingers got burned, that we'd all .... sing the absurd. And guess what I learned when a mass of heads turned, that we'd all .... sing the absurd. Something For Sammy ---------------------------- Well there's better necks to break and better cars to crash, Yeah there's better necks to break and better cars to crash.
