My dad worked in a factory I tried it too but I couldn’t do With the tedium of the everyday I flunked out I’m not ashamed to say While he was steady I was a flake I lived my life from scrape to scrape Now I’m older I’m a lot like him History coming back again I’ve got this name and it doesn’t fit I don’t know what I can do about it They say the child is the father to the man I’ll just do what I can Started out on the factory floor Worked his way through the boardroom door Voted for the right wing all his life Though I tried hard he couldn’t see the light I loved my dad but I don’t want to be him A history coming back again I’ve got this name and it doesn’t fit I don’t know what I can do about it They say the child is the father to the man I’ll just do what I can

Strange locomotion Over the ocean We can find a better place Strange locomotion If you’ve got the notion Get on over the ocean Take yourself a big fat plane Get some strange locomotion Up and down Off the ground Strange strange Strange locomotion Up and down Way off the ground Strange strange Strange locomotion Way over the ocean We’ve all left the land and sea Got some strange locomotion Up and down Round and round Strange strange Strange locomotion Up and down Off the ground Strange strange Strange locomotion Over the ocean We’ve found new land new sea Strange locomotion I’ve got a notion baby It’s some strange locomotion It’ll be just for you and me It’s some strange locomotion

Ray was singing to me How I might see the stars As I stroll down Hollywood Boulevard And Neil kept telling me Tonight’s the night Over at S.I.R. I used to be cool But I’m just a tourist now A starstruck fool Who turned into a man somehow But if you think that what you see is what you get You haven’t seen the half of it yet Who was it told the tale Of how Marie Prevost Did not look her best On that January day When the cops bust down the door Into her loneliness I used to think that that was cool The words of ill-informed men Bonafide fools I think I’ve learned a lot since then But if you think that what you see is what you get You haven’t learned the half of it yet Please form an orderly line Please no photography Kindly stick to the path Just over there on the right Is where an angry crowd Tore a desperate man in half I used to be cool But I’m just a tourist now A starstruck fool Who turned into a man somehow But if you think that what you see is what you get You haven’t seen the half of it yet

Dead End 02:18
There’s a sign at the top of our street Dead end dead end dead end What we see when we come home Dead end dead end dead end It’s like the end of the world The end of the world as we know it now The past is all over yes it’s all gone away Dead end dead end dead end Maybe tomorrow can’t make it today Dead end dead end dead end The future has just arrived Like cherries falling off of trees I’d ride out of here If I could just find the keys Put the car in reverse It started first time She said just what I thought she’d say Same place, different time Just like the end of the world The end of the world as we know it now Too late to back out now Dead end dead end dead end The truck is too big the curb is too high Dead end dead end dead end

I thought that they were Mormans But they might have been the KGB They could’ve been Christians They were giving the lions a run for their money Tell me it’s God’s will When you’re taking it up the arse Tell me take a pill Well I think I’m gonna have to pass I thought that we were one Well we must have been one or the other There’s a whole fucking ocean of doubt And no time to be discovered What’s that swimming at the edge of the tank Kissing the glass with its mouth It must have crawled up the overflow pipe somehow I’ve got this predilection for slavering He’s got a golf course and he’s got a plan This here’s a pre-existing condition I know a man and he knows a man Creepy people in the middle of the night that’s right Creepy people in the middle of the night alright Creepy people in the middle of the night that’s right I know a man and he knows a man This is the darkness at the edge of the daylight A clusterfuck a galaxy Fucking up in front of the sun Can’t see a hand in front of your face There’s a shadow hiding in plain sight We got some news And we think it’s bad This might be the second coming Or you might have been had Tell me it’s God’s will When they’re fucking you up the arse They tell you take a pill and you You’re too dumb to pass I’ve got this predilection for slavering They’ve got a golf course and they got a plan This here’s a pre-existing condition I know a man and he knows a man Creepy people in the middle of the night that’s right Creepy people in the middle of the night alright Creepy people in the middle of the night that’s right I know a man and he knows a man I know a man and he knows a man I know a man and he knows a man I know a man and he knows a man

Tiny House 02:02
I wanna jack it all in Everything And live in a tiny house Eat and sleep Sit and think And never worry about anybody else In my tiny house It’s got a wheel on each corner I can tow it with a pickup truck To somewhere where it’s warm My disposition’s looking up In my tiny house Treacle City Tennessee Hershey Pennsylvania I wish I could fly it to the moon Or some far flung galaxy I’m just sitting in my tiny house Never thinking about anybody else When I’m sitting in my tiny house Oh it’s so tiny...

I was dreaming about motel signs When you drifted through my mind Haven’t seen you in a thousand years So I took it as a sign Seems like only yesterday - yes it was yesterday Another space in time Like a monumental motel sign Lost in space and time Our lives were stretched before us Like a summer holiday Now all that’s left behind Is an indelible stain

Cali-Cali-Californ-I-A Put the ceiling on a feeling That I think I’m going to feel today The sun shines down here 10 am til sunset Puts an end to the day I’d been driving all night No wear and tear on my shoes Found a grubby hotel room Where the checkout time is noon There’s a steel plate on the door A bad repair where someone kicked it in I could be the handyman here In another life
