1. 100%  

[Thurston]
I can never forget you
the way you rock the girls
they move a world and love you
you're blasting the underworld

i stick a knife in my head
a-thinking 'bout your eyes
but now that you been shot dead
i got a new surprise

but i been waitin' for you just to say
he's off to check his mind
but all i know is you got no money
but that's got nothing to do with a good time

can you forgive the boy who
shot you in the head
or should you get a gun and
go and get revenge?

a 100% of my love
up to you true star
it's hard to believe you took off
i always thought you'd go far

but i been around the world a million times
and all you men are slime
it gone to my head
goodbye i am dead
wastewood rockers is time for crap
hey





2. Swimsuit Issue top

[Kim]
I'm just here for dictation
i don't wanna be a sensation
bein' on Sixty Minutes
wasn't worth your fifteen minutes

don't touch my breast
i'm just working at my desk
don't put me to the test
i'm just doing my best

shopping at Max Fields
power for you to wield
dreamed of going to the Grammies
till you poked me with your whammy

he's been dissed
now you're moving your wrist
I'm just from Encino
why are you so mean oh

i'm just here for dictation
and not your summer vacation
you really like to shmooz
but now you're on the moves

I'm from Sherman Oaks
just a wheel with spokes
but i ain't giving you head
in a Sunset bungalow

Roshanda
Judith
Paulina
Cathy
Vendella
Naomi
Ashley
Angie
Stacey
Gail
ice women
ice women
ice women





3. Theresa's Sound-world top

[Thurston]
Light girl come walkin thru the corn, free
light blue vibration thru the sea
i know i'd love her to breathe, again
light cubes are talkin her down

i've been a wasted day
light spinning round a saint
light colored wild sign
theresa talkin the rain

light girl be glowin thru town
windows are thoughts in disdain
i know i'd love her to stay
whispering signs are agreeing

light talking gold in the rain
lights vibing dark in the saint
a cat in gold goes alone
theresa's sound for the king





4. Drunken Butterfly top

[Kim]
Smile like a sun
back over time
crazy on you
pleasure is mine
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?

here come through it
giving it up
going too far
try understand
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?

whisper kiss me here
i'll tell you what i fear
whisper kisses up here
i'll tell you what i fear

come on home
just ain't fair
name of rock'n'roll
where love dies
couldn't find a soul
tell it like it is
deep down inside
drunken butterfly
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?
i love you i love you i love you
what's your name?
i love you i love you i love you

5. Shoot top

[Kim]
Can i have some money?
i'm gonna go to the store
can i have some money?
i can't tell you what it's for
can i have some money?
you know it's you that i adore
can i have some money?
don't ask me what it's for

since we've been together you've been good to me
you only hit me when you wanna be pleased

can i have the car keys?
i'm gonna go for a ride
can i have the car please?
i'm going out for a while
can i have the car now?
i wanna drive all around
can i have the car dear?
i'm going to leave this town

i won't be asking your permission to leave
i won't be asking not to have this baby please
and i won't be asking don't point some bust??? at me
and i won't be asking i had to see you bleed

ssssssh

forever we
one two three

shoot

you don't even know what you almost had





6. Wish Fulfillment top

[Lee]
I see your wishes on the wall
and that's all right with me
i see you run to make a call
putting up to someone free

your life and my life they don't touch at all
and that's no way to be
we've never seemed so far

what's real? what is true?
i ain't turning my back on you
where're you goin'? where've you been?
making wishes, watching dreams

it might be simple it might be true
i might be overwhelmed by you
you might be empty
the way your eyes just look right through

its such a mess now anyway
wish fulfillment every day
i don't believe you
now i can't hear a word you say

i see you shaking in the light
reading the headline news
the others they're not quite so right
we want them to choose you
i could almost see your face tonight
singing simple rhythm'n'blues
you'll always be a star

shake it baby
come on scream
just seen your face in a magazine
don't doubt it
leave's 'em sore
i can't stand it anymore
it's my favorite shot of you
you look so pretty your eyes were true
i'm still on your side
in spite of everything you do

we're only blood on blood on life
you paint me pictures every night
come wish beside me
don't you know you know what's right





7. Sugar Kane top

[Thurston]
You're perfect in the way
a perfect end today
you're burning out their lies
and burning in their eyes
i love you Sugar Kane
a-come in from the rain
oh kiss me like a frog
and turn me into flame
i love you all the time
i need you here tonight
and i can stay all night
with daddy shining

and i know
there's something down there sugar soul
back to the cross a twisted lane
there something down there Sugar Kane

i'm back again in love
i'm back again a dove
where'd you get your lie
this mind is sugar life
another lovers day
another crack of night
every night i say
light is coming

and i know
there's something down there sugar cone
back to the cross a twisted lane
there's something down there Sugar Kane

angel come and play
you fly me away
a stroll along the beach
until you're out of time
i love you Sugar Kane
a crack into the dream
i love you Sugar Kane
i love you Sugar Kane
i love you Sugar Kane
i love you Sugar Kane
i love you Sugar Kane
i love you Sugar

11. On The Strip top

[Kim]
Every time you look my way
shine a light in what you say
every time you look my way
you talk around going purple haze

close your eyes and pretend
you're not at all a black friend

smile this girl on the strip
you really learn just how to be hip
tell your stories 'bout your crazy trip
messing with stars and doing tricks

close your eyes and pretend
it started all back then

big glass house on the hill
doing dope but did you swear
yesterday was buried last year
well i don't care i thought was clear

close your eyes and pretend
this is how it should end

cinderella of the mind
doesn't know her left from right
she so hungry for a bite
forget your friends for midnight

don't you know who's keeping score
who's that barking at your door

hold tight with fear living
hold tight with fear living
hold tight with fear living
hold tight with fear

that was then
this is now

hold tight with fear living
hold tight with fear living
hold tight with fear living
hold tight with fear

that was then
this is now

every time you look my way
remember a girl who used to say
hold me tight every way
it's okay it's only play

i will learn you in my dawn
where i came from for i run





12. Chapel Hill top

[Thurston]
A-back in the days when the battles raged
and we thought it was nothing
the bookstore man is the CIA
and we know
throw me a cord and plug it in
to get the Cradle rocking
and out with the redneck [?] men [?] [red that get open???]
and let's go

a hair in the hole in my head
too bad the scene is dead
memories in the shadow
back in time again

but i can't forget your terrorized face
when you cried for the shameless
wasted life Ameri-K-K-Kan
and you smiled
so why should we run when we cannot hide
and my flag it's burning
we could be wrong but that's allright
we'll rise again

a hair in the hole in my head
too bad the scene is dead
our memories in the shadow
it's back in town again

look in a way it's another day
and of course we love you
radical man is the CIA
and we say no
we'll round up the Durham H.C. kids
and the Char Grill Killers
Jesse H. come into our pit
all ages show

a hair in the hole in my head
too bad the scene is dead
our memories in the shadow
it's back in time again





13. JC top

[Kim]
Always cast a pair of hose
spaces pressed together rose
arms around each others back
you know that i liked you Jack
and all the other boys who pose
a silent dance in the woods
in this love of bite that's shown
another can of coca cola
don't you ever call me Mom
freckled dancing in the plant
and air so thin I wanted time
as far as you can see it's fun
you're nothing but a history
a second here and then you're gone
quicksand quicksand all around
turn the corner just beyond
the shadows move and change the groove
and something tells me not to brood
turning round and that's a show
you're walking through my heart once more
don't forget to close the door
i'm not certain what you found
all the men want a charming word/whore
like a crown full of jewels
sunny skies and angels please
falling down upon my knees
that wasn't how its supposed to be
clear blue eyes, just as tries
the wind is busy blowing dizzy
you're dreams were shot like a star
exploding in a mind somewhere
doing something on a dare
pulling a trigger like breathing air
a sunkissed boy that gave no thought
to what he'd made while others saved
ocean spreads a candle said/candle's head
it's dripping in my hand, you're dead
little brother reminding me
moments take forever tree
you can see as far as sin
don't you know the shape i'm in
you're walking through my heart once more
don't forget to close the door





14. Purr top

[Thurston]
Whoahooh!
i love you baby 'cause you're back in time
i love you today
your eyes are flashing back a magic sign
the sun comes out to play

i learned it all from you girl
i got it all from you
how to howl the moon yeah
how to scratch your door
i do it every day
come back again tomorrow
you chase it all away

a dreaming beauty sleeping day and night
the sun around you
i love you baby yeah you're superfine
call me down too
a purring whirring fuzzy likes of day
the switching sunlight
i chase you kitten get you every time
funny how it flies

i learned it all from you girl
i got it all from you
how to howl the moon yeah
how to scratch your door
i do it every day
come back again tomorrow
you chase my life away

i hear you purring down a supersoul
i pop in to look
a personal letter yeah a [???] roll [gold?]
let her tear away
i learned it all from you girl
i got it all from you
how to howl the moon yeah
how to scratch your door
i do it every day
come back again tomorrow
you chase the life away





15. Creme Brulee top

[Kim]
Aaoooow!
whoo!
hah
huh

riding down the road it nearly struck me blind
you and me are burning in the summertime
let's go find some shady ground
gotta get rid of that king hell frown
you and me are burning in the summertime
you and me are burning in the summertime

scrape-scrape-scrapin' melted cheese
say 'i love you', later please
you and me are burning in the summertime
you and me are burning in the summertime

dark spots floating in front of my eyes
mum said she turned it on the squattin' flies
you and me are burning in the summertime
you and me are burning in the summertime

last night i dreamed i kissed Neil Young
if i was a boy i guess it would be fun
you and me are burning in the summertime
you and me are burning in the summertime

don't you know the city where the horses grow
green malts hanging children crows
you and me are burning in the summertime
you and me are burning in the summertime

i said it before
and i'll say it again
i'm so happy
we're just friends
