The reason that I signed up Is the reason that I hate it I know she's made her mind up I just don't know how she's made it And my dial-up screen has locked me Into a touch tone tune monotony Because some snot-nosed pube has blocked me out And I wait And I wait And I hate my frickin ISP He ain't got go bandwidth left for me And I'll never get back Never get back the time that I waste That's what I hate My job's so hard to swallow But it's got me by the collar In some Motel 6 squalor Where every local call's a dollar I got no time left to jack off I got a deadline that won't back off I'm about to chew my own leg off Cause it's so late And I'm late And I hate my frickin ISP I get bumped for inactivity And I'll never get back Never get back the time that I waste That's what I hate It rained CD roms that gave me Twenty hours free I let my service provider Make a junky outta me And then he cut me off From my online community And now I hate, I hate it I hate I hate I hate I hate I hate my frickin ISP His domain name lookup takes eternity etc...

Saw you once and you looked so sweet Saw you twice and I felt complete Three times thought I'd get some peace Dozen times and there's no release And I was already gone And life goes on in white and black Cloaking the stealth of your attack The tendrils creep through every crack And every time I cut you off You grow right back Like buffalo grass You crawled across my heart Oh like buffalo grass Wrapped yourself around my heart Day goes by and I think I feel clean Week goes by and I feel serene Month goes by like you're just a dream Year goes by I'm back on my knees When I was already gone But since you first infected me We've been connected karmically Should I escape your gravity In every other solar system There you'll be Like buffalo grass You crawled across my heart Oh like buffalo grass Wrapped yourself around my heart Like buffalo grass You crawled across my heart Oh like hele hele Cat claw across my heart Empires fall and the roach will rule Lifetimes pass and I'm still your fool Universe collapses in a silvery pool Watering the root that connects me to you

I don't want to work I want to bang on the drum all day I don't want to play I just want to bang on the drum all day Ever since I was a tiny boy I don't want no candy I don't need no toy I took a stick and an old coffee can I bang on that thing 'til I got Blisters on my hand because When I get older they think I'm a fool The teacher told me I should stay after school She caught me pounding on the desk with my hands But my licks was so hot I made the teacher wanna dance And that's why Listen to this Every day when I get home from work I feel so frustrated The boss is a jerk And I get my sticks and go out to the shed And I pound on that drum like it was the boss's head Because I can bang that drum Hey, you wanna take a bang at it? I can do this all day
I've got a great big problem that I can't fix. I think it's quarter to three when it's half past six. Everything's early or way too late. Now I never can remember the day and the date. Never used to be this much trouble before. I used to watch the clock but not anymore. I used to keep track of the time I'd lose, But now the whole thing has me so confused. I have to find a new job every week or so, 'Cause no one needs a man who's always fast or slow. Still you'll get no complaint from me, But what can the answer be? Where does the time go when I'm with you? How many hours do I lose every day? They recombine when I'm missing you, Slowing me down like a digital delay. Where does the time go when I'm with you? Why does it seem like there's never enough? It's just like I'm living split in two. Two kinds of time when you're out and in love. There's only so much pleasure a man can take, 'Til his brain starts to go and his senses fade. Doesn't need to eat or drink or sleep. Can't feel a thing 'cause he's in too deep. Walks around thinking that the world is fine, While an alien force takes over his mind. And then he throws away every single dime, And the last thing to go is his sense of time. But then if you're having fun, Who cares if you're that far gone? They tell me that time's not free. What did time ever do for me? And if I don't see that's wrong, Then maybe I'm too far gone.
I've been burned in my prime The simple things in life Seem so hard to learn sometimes And it takes so long Catch it while you can Too late tomorrow And everyone Said we all know what comes of that Living in your pockets and talking through your hat But it won't take long To turn your head around Too late tomorrow 'Cause everyone needs the love of the common man Turn the world around Too late tomorrow 'Cause everyone Everyone is waiting, just anticipating on you Won't you make a showing everybody knows what to do Take a dive from your ivory tower And fall on everyone will catch you, everyone I would be so pleased to spend some time To hear a little talk about what's been on your mind 'Cause it don't take long To turn my head around If it comes easy 'Cause everyone needs the love of the common man Turn the world around Too late tomorrow 'Cause everyone
You got speed, turn it on What I need to mow my lawn You're my steed I ride til dawn And the main vein bleeds til my strength is gone I'm in the saddle, I'm in the race I try not to ratle but you set the pace When I start to struggle to share your space You stop and then you Stick it in my face Stick it in my face You stick it Yer fast, and I like it Yer fast, and I like it It can't last, but I like it I like it I like it I like it Now stop I need time to catch my breath I behind but I ain't done yet Too inclined to stop and rest Lest my racing mind beat my heart to death I ain't a yokel but lawd I swear This ain't the local, it's express somewhere When the flat on my cycle ain't got no spare You stop and then you Put your finger there Put your finger there You put it Yer fast, and I like it Yer fast, and I like it It can't last, but I like it I like it I like it I like it I like it Freeze frame, stop the press It's insane to go on like this Forgot my name, gorgot to piss Am I plain inane or a slave to bliss? Space was bending to bring you near Thought I was trascending but now I fear It looks like the ending of my fine career But you stop and then you Kiss me over here kiss me over here You kiss me then you kiss me over here Kiss me on the... you know!
I have visions, I have visions of a happy land And in this happy land, happy land There is still one unhappy man Because of all the things he wants There is always something he can't have It's like a siren singing, like a church bell ringing I can feel you winning, and my head starts spinning Now I'm back at the beginning I, I, I see you lying there and I, I felt a wave come over me and I, I, I thought I had escaped you As I sat down by the roadside And it hit me like a train Hit me like a freight train When the truth came down on me It hit me like a long, slow train It is written, I know it's written All God's children get smitten And if there's anyone, anybody I know the [Lord] can fit that description And if I could turn back the hands of time Still I wouldn't know what I'm supposed to change It's like a well gone dry, like a kiss goodbye As the grip gets tighter, I continue to fight it Then you strike me with your lightning I, I, I woke up in a cold sweat and I, I thought I heard you call my name and I, I, I had to reach out for your fingers And before I could call the doctor You hit me like a train Hit me like a freight train When the truth came down on me Swear you hit me like a long, slow train Lord you hit me like a train Hit me like a coal train When your love came down on me yeah Say hit me like a long, slow Lord I feel it coming down and I, I, I, I, oooh I, I, I, oh Lord have mercy [on me] I can't hold out no longer I was ready to surrender And it hit me like a train yeah Hit me like a freight train When your love came down on me yeah And it me like a long, slow train Lord you hit me like a train Hit me like a soul train When your love, when your love came down on me child Hit me like a long slow [how long was it] long train Hit me like a coal train?
Oooh I love you Giggle giggle The surf talks Do you love me too? If the surf could talk, I know she'd ask "Do you think you're equal to the task?" If the surf could talk, she'd say "Beware I love you" So I'd answer very carefully And I'd ask if she'd be there for me And the surf says "always Beware I love you" The surf says "I want you like you want me Am I in you? Are you in me? Tell me" The surf talks And it knows what to say The surf talks I must learn to obey The gun cocks, the clock stops, the earth rocks, the surf talks The surf talks Puts its tongue on my skin The surf talks While it's sucking me in The door locks and unlocks, the veil drops, the surf talks She has promised me a beach of pearls And an endless wave, a perfect curl And she tells me always "Beware I love you" She will place the world inside my hand She will touch the soul of every man She will take my message "I'm here to love you" The surf says "I want you here inside me Am I in you? Are you in me? Tell me" We are standing on a beach of pearls We are riding deep inside the curl And everybody all around the world Must surrender when your flag unfurls We are standing on a beach of pearls We are riding deep inside the curl And everybody all around the world Will be dancing in the sea.
