Track Name: !JP - Soviets
Lord, don’t give me esteem
Don’t give me a bit of your preciousness
Flow like a deal
I'll know if it's real
I'm sure I'll find a few new links
Even the rain is sharp like a stain
And you fuck me 'till I'm insane
Breathe in the damp through your Havana
My blood is a carbon-monoxide Nirvana

Tall Shiva too but don't ask why
Ask the cherry blossom
Ask the luscious skies
Tell Buddha too but don't ask why
Don’t ask me why
You don’t ask me

Hail and death to the Soviets
Thrill a rage into the top ten of ache
Lover, bring me bougainvillea
My wine is douched out of your faith
Even the prayers are down like today
And you suck me 'till I'm insane
Breathe in the damp through your Havana
My blood is a carbon-monoxide Nirvana

Tall Shiva too but don't ask why
Ask the cherry blossom
Ask the luscious skies
Tell Buddha too but don't ask why
Don’t ask me why
You don’t ask me
Track Name: !JP - Not Even The Rain
No one not even the rain has such small hands
No one not even the rain

Am I?
Am i?
Am I floating?
Floating?

Am I floating?

In his bedroom Lloyd sits and waits
Lloyd masturbates
From his window Lloyd looks down and out
He looks out and down
Ain't nothing out there but town

Am I?
Floating?

Am i floating?

No one not even the rain has such small hands
Track Name: !JP - Supermarket Shit
It's 4 a.m., Sunday morning, in a town you wouldn’t believe
I'm still up and driving
I'm going home, that's obvious, Lee
I was not their dream
Not fit, not happy, not productive
Comfortable?
Ha!
Not allowed to drink any spirits
Three days a week exercising at the gym
I had to get on better with my associate employee and contemporaries
I'm at ease
I eat well
I had to get myself a safer car for the baby
But no paranoia
Will frequently check my credit at the moral bank
Charity, standing orders
On Sunday the round road supermarket
Car wash, also on Sunday
But no longer afraid of the dark
And no chance of escape
Now I'm self employed and there's nothing as ridiculous as teenage and despair
Nothing as childish
This is supposed to be the better place
More calculated
But I'm concerned yet powerless
I listen to my tires gripping the concrete
I'm barbwired
I'm an empowered, informed member of society
Pragmatism, not idealism
Never cry in public
There's less chance of illness here, that's true
But I still have my memories
I still cry at a good film
I still kiss
And now I'm not longer frantic and empty
Calm down!
I'm going out of the cage
I'm on antibiotics
I'm here
It's 4 a.m., Sunday morning
I take the route of the blue sun
Transport
Motorways and tramlines
Starting and stopping, taking off and landing
Sentimental journey
I'm clinging on to my Seconal, clinging on to my Xanax, clinging on to my bottle of Suds
I know where I am
Into the great escape
Now the floor collapses
I'm floating, bouncing
I know where I am
I'm close to the edge
I'm close to my edge
Please, let me go
Club
Track Name: !JP - Easter Jesus
Your message came like a shock to me
"Driving and hiding underneath my skinned tree"
You know what you know and you know you know it so well
There the light
We leave light shine in the middle

And the Devils made him crawl on his knees
Freedom lies
Untie the deepest stitch there with me
Donna lies somewhere beyond the slightest grey
Fallen from the undertow to travel away

There's stardust all over the floor
When you open your senses for more
And cruelty deeper than Heaven's Door
Eric says Neill will be behind the terror evermore

Lines are here to stay
Donna will take it away
But what's another day?
And what the hell can I say?
Track Name: !JP - They All Gave Us His Name
Politicians killed by an assassin
And nothing stayed the same
And still they keep on going on
And they just gave us his name

Carbon Exits in your spine
I'll take your body dipped in wine
All the failures written in the sky
And they just gave a reason why

And I want something else
But they all give me the same
Some galaxies of porno interviews
And they all gave us his name
Track Name: !JP - Equal Thoughts
Created like liberals on the soothe
Let's take one more
Feel lips glow
Tourist through the Indian

Supernatural thing, make it strike
Chocolate covered saliva
Disguised masses on T

Sigmund Freud, analyze this
How long have been chasing the dragon?
The absinthe brought you this magic?
Someone somewhere must have equal thoughts

Just say when, my lovely arse tourist
Are you sure you want to stroke every hair on my chest
Just say when, my lovely arse tourist
Like you are, like you are, like you are

Created like liberals on the soothe
Let's take one more

Sigmund Freud, analyze this
How long have you been chasing the dragon?
The absinthe brought you this magic?
Someone somewhere must have equal thoughts

Someone somewhere
Track Name: !JP - Witch
You betrayed me
Left me lonely
You in a red dress
This is my revenge

You'll never make it to heaven
I shoot with my AK-47

You said you were allowed to speak?
Thank God your sperm is weak
Track Name: !JP - On The 25th Floor
It's reddish all around me
It's reddish in NYC
On top of the ESB
Windy out here
What can I do to make you happy?
To give you Christmas each year?
The spire is hot and my cells can't cope
The spire is hot and my cells can't cope

From the buildings we're tumbling down
If our love is strong enough we could walk away from the crash

It's a high all around me
Stephany doesn't deserve my air
And Syl will help us get through
I could use my fame
And rent a wife and a kid today
But the spire is hot and my cells can't cope
The spire is hot and my cells can't cope
My cells can't cope
From the buildings we're tumbling down
If our love is strong enough we could walk away from the crash
If our love is strong enough we could walk away from the crash
Track Name: !JP - The Amber Inside The Piss
When the bad angel kissed the taste of his sangria mist
Saw a dirty couple spread
The amber inside the piss

Stay tuned in for magazines
Style: plastic
Magical: dreams
Lap dancing to the Stereo Three
The amber of the hungry scream
The amber of a hungry scream

He said I was a love-machine
He could have seen it in his dreams
He said I was a love-machine
He could have quit the winning team

He said: "Is that what I taste your super-nova juice?
Satellites motion of your fluids?
Sponges reaching for the drinks?"
Is this really what you think?

Stay tuned for magazines
Style: plastic
Magical: dreams
Lap dancing to the Stereo Three
The amber of a hungry scream
The amber of a hungry scream

He said I was a love-machine
He could have seen it in his dreams
He said I was a love-machine
He could have quit the winning team

I was there in every old man's bedroom
I was there Friday nights at Joe's Café
I was there on the bonus DVD
I was there in every boy's wet dream

Stay tuned in for the magazines
Style: plastic
Magical: dreams
Lap dancing to the Stereo Three
The amber of the hungry scream

So when the bad angel kissed the taste of his sangria mist
Saw the dirty couple spread
The amber inside the piss
Track Name: !JP - Falling Down
Nothing left
Nothing to sing about
Living a normal life
At least try

The sun still in the sky
I feel like I'm falling down
No gala, no drug, no future
Not much

In the end no heart attack and vine
Dosing the cures
Drink the bitter wine

No drama, no fear, nothing much left for me here
No summer, no winter, no life to speak about
No gala, no drug, no future
No drama, no fear, nothing much left for me here
Now I'm falling down

In the end no heart attack and vine
Dosing the cures
Drink the bitter wine

Now I'm falling down

Nothing left now I'm falling down
Track Name: !JP - SK
Allow me to step on your tombe
It'll be my tribute to the dead
I don't believe you're gonna leave me because me and Charles Manson like the same raspberry pie – the one from Elayne's

Allow me to step on your tombe
I believe Jim Morrison has been haunting me
And his poems still taunt me 'till I'm blue as your face when the last breath leaves you – honey, give me Courtney Pine

Allow me to step on your tombe
My Deus will be close to me
And he's sharing his experiences on life and breathing in other useless things – honey, let me tell you you are gravely mistaken

Everyday is my wedding day though baby is still in his comatose state
I'll dye my own easter eggs – don't go yet
And Manon lost the sunset but that's okay
Does she bring flowers to Marilyn's grave?
She's the girl who eats pizza and never gains weight
Pizza
Pizza
Never gains weight

Allow me to step on your tombe
Allow me to step on your tombe
Track Name: !JP - Fever Flow
When will fever flow?
It's only a piece of fabric
But it has the power of speech
She'll be there with her new boyfriend

Go along, let's see what she's given up
Some people s-s-s surprise us
Make us think different or just think

"Byron is a top athlete"

Supermodel, husband and father
Small town man, the guy next door
In touch of today with one step ahead
Against the grain, unbounded

On the search for new expression
Blend the music
With art

With art, with art, with art

Mold us future and dreams
The sky is the limit
When will Fever Flow?
Track Name: !JP - Screw
That coked out bitch got me shaving my legs
Got me shaving my chest
Got me shaving my head

And I love to watch when you nail her
That picture of Jesus is crawling up our sleeves

I say: "Bring your kin when you can't handle me"

Another pilot down and you love to control her
I love the sound you make when you're crawling on your knees

And she does cocaine when she plays the heroin
That exodus flashing like the scent tune from your sparks

I say: "Bring your kin when you can't handle me"

And if you want me to I could hurt you
You don't need excuses just to make me a part of you
And if you want me to I could hurt you
I won't use that whip just to get closer to you

I say: "Bring your kin when you can't handle me"
I say: "Bring your kin if you can't handle me"

That coked out bitch got me shaving my legs
Got me shaving my chest
Got me shaving my head

And I love to watch when you fuck her
That picture of Jesus is crawling up my sleeves

I say: "Bring your kin!
Bring your kin!
Bring your kin when you can't handle me!"

I say: "Come! Screw me!"
Track Name: !JP - Quite Awake
It's like honey in my mouth – your Golden Shower flowing down
I'm shut up with wonder what we would feel like together
I'm wrapped up like a gift - open up before I start to drift
Just paddle by paddle is as sweet as I can feel
I'm right with you – I'm exquisite, I'm violent
And I'm just so crazy that I'd love to die in your arms

I'm back outside your door and you don't touch me anymore
But when I'm touching you the full weight of you is on top of me sleeping
And when you wake I'm quite awake
I'm quite awake
Track Name: !JP - Drifted
One day you'll die and then I'm all alone
Nobody really likes me, with my friends I don't feel quite at home

Oh, God, the ache of such a surprise
Considered I'd never break, feeling like ice

Hey
I'm glad you're my lover
Hey
You float right above me

I drifted away until the day you came

Yes, Jean is the one
He got it all made
He goes to parties
Looks good in the shade
I'm a nice guy
I am slightly mad
I am a genius
But I still feel sad

These little voices, they whisper in my ears
They tell me I'm ugly, so I check the mirror

Hey
I'm glad you're my lover
Hey
You float right above me

I drifted away until the day you came
