I drive down to the disco Pompadour and pink lame I bow and blow the doorman He parts the chain, says "Join the game" A quick line in the girls' room To the bar for the electrodes A coin in the right slits Tape my temple, watch me go! Blacks are banned, 'cept on the records O' life's a cabaret Like Berlin, 1930 All I crave is my escape Now I want your perfect barbie-doll lips And I want your perfect barbie-doll eyes Slip my fingers down your barbie-doll dress Up and down your spandex ass If I lit a match to you You'd melt before my eyes C'mere my pretty glow-worm You look so fine to dance with me The fly-eye lights are throbbin' I'm burnin' up the floor Whirling twirling Close my eyes No faces judging me A Hitler youth in jogging suit Smiling face banded 'round his arm Says, 'Line up, you've got work to do' We need dog food for the poor A scream bleats out, we're herded into lines Customized vans wait outside I'm getting scared of my new home To Auschwitz Condominiums we go Oh No Now I want your perfect barbie-doll lips And I want your perfect barbie-doll eyes Let my fingers down you dress One more time.... -PULL MY STRINGS- (Bra/Slesinger) I'm tired of self respect I can't afford a car I wanna be a tool Don't need no soul Wanna make big money Playing rock and roll I'll make my music boring I'll play my music slow I ain't no artist, I'm a businessman No ideas of my own I won't offend Or rock the boat Just sex and drugs And rock and roll Drool, Drool, Drool, Drool, Drool, Drool...My Payola! Drool, Drool, Drool, Drool, Drool, Drool...My Payola! You'll pay ten bucks to see me On a fifteen foot high stage Fatass bouncers kick the shit Out of kids who try to dance If my friends say I've lost my guts I'll laugh and say That's rock and roll But There's just one problem..... Is my cock big enough Is my brain small enough For you to make me a star Give me a toot And I'll sell you my soul Pull my strings and I'll go far And when I'm rich And meet Bob Hope We'll shoot some fool And shoot some dope Is my cock big enough Is my brain small enough For you to make me a star Repeat.... Etc... -SHORT SONGS- (6025) I like short songs (reapeat 13 times) -STRAIGHT A'S- (Words: Biafra; Music: 6025) Sixteen, on the honor roll I wish that I was Dead Parents hate me, I got zits And bruises 'round my head Pressure's on to get good grades So I can be like them Do my homework all the time I can't go out just then People they ain't friends at all They tease me and suck me dry Yell at me when I fuck up And party while I cry I look so big on paper I feel so fucking small Wanna die and you don't care Just stride on down the hall Suicide Suicide Read the paper, wonder why Turn the light out, then you cry It's your fault, you made me die Touch me won't you touch me now So frozen I can't love When I was born my mama cried And picked me up with gloves Girls, they kick me in the eye Want answers to the tests When they get them they drive off And leave me home to rest Hold my head Make me warm Tell me I am loved Give me hope Let me cry Make me feel Give me touch The window's broken bleeding screaming Lying in the hall I'm gone no one remembers me A picture on the wall "He was such a bright boy The future in his hands..." Or a spineless human pinball Shot around by your demands Suicide Suicide Goin' to sleep and when I die You'll look up and realize Then look down and wipe your eyes And go back to your stupid lives Aw Shit -KINKY SEX MAKE THE WORLD GO 'ROUND- (Words:Biafra; Music:Biafra/Flouride/Ray/Peligro) Greetings...This is the secretary of war at the state department of the United States....We have a problem, the companies want something done about this sluggish world economic situation....Profits have been running a little thin lately and we need to stimulate some growth....Now we know there's an alarmingly high number of young people roaming around in your country with nothing to do but stir up trouble for the police and damage private property. It doesn't look like they'll ever get a job....It's about time we did something constructive with these people....We've got thousands of 'em here too. They're crawling all over....The companies think it's time we all sit down, have a serious get-together--START ANOTHER WAR......The president? He loves the idea! All those missiles streaming overhead to and fro....Napalm....People running down the road, skin on fire....The Soviets seem up for it....The Kremlin's been itching for the real thing for years. Hell, Afghanistan's no fun....So whadya say?.....We don't even have to win this war, we just want to cut down on some of this excess population.....Now look. Just start up a draft: draft as many of those people as you can. We'll call up every last youngster we can get our hands on, hand 'em some speed, give 'em an hour or two to learn how to use an automatic rifle and send 'em on their way.....Libya??? El Salvador? How 'bout northern Ireland? Or a "moderately repressive regime" in South America?.... We'll just cook up a good Soviet threat story in the Middle East--We need that oil.... We had Libya all ready to go and Colonel Kjadafy's hit squad didn't even show up, I tell ya....That man is UNRELIABLE. The Kremlin had their fingers on the button just like we did for that one...Now just think for a minute--We can make this war so big--so big....The more people we kill in this war, the more the economy will prosper...We can get rid of practically everybody on your dole queues if we plan this right. Take every loafer on welfare right off our computer rolls....Now don't worry about those demonstrations--just PUMP UP YOUR DRUG SUPPLY. So many people have hooked themselves on heroin and amphetamines since we took over, it's just like Vietnam. We had everybody so busy with LSD they never got too strong, kept the war functioning just fine. It's easy, we've got our college kids so interested in beer they don't even care if we start manufacturing germ bombs again. Put a nuclear stockpile in their back yard, they would't even know what it looked like.....So how 'bout it? Look--WAR IS MONEY. The arms manufacturers tell me unless we get our bomb factories up to full production the whole economy is going to collapse....The Soviets are in the same boat. We all agree the time has come for the BIG ONE, so whadya say?!?....That's excellent. We knew you'd agree....The companies will be very pleased. -THE PREY- You're from out of town I can tell that by your shoes Flew in for the convention Getting tipsy in a bar You're leavin' pretty late Gotta get up in the morning Thinking she's just too expensive And you know you're... Probably.... Right! There's no one on the streets And you can't find your hotel You walk a little faster --Someone's following you The wallet-size bulge In your double-knit butt Has money for me And maybe credit cards You dart around the next corner You can't look around Quick now, fish for the keys For the door You don't even know where you are You walk a little faster I walk a little faster Sensing that I sense you Now there's no escape I can almost taste your dandruff As I reach for your face --And I strike -BUZZBOMB FROM PASADENA (Words: Biafra; Music: Ray & Biafra) Buzzbomb Buzzbomb macho-mobile The road's my slave, that's how I feel I cruise alone, I cruise real far Shoo young punk! I love my car Cross Nevada at 110 Highway 50 and there's nobody there Sign says, "Next sign 30 miles!" My pension comes-- Each penny saved buys more escape from home I'd rather carouse around all day Than move into a home Plow through rest area san-o-lets Splat goes the lonely salesman Still wanking in the men's room... Buzzbomb Buzzbomb tape up loud Lawrence Welk cranked up to 10 Faster Faster in my car Buzzbomb is my pride and joy King of the trailer court Waiting for a nice young man Who'll love me for my car Who tells me why I'm cool Tell me just what I like When I pretend he's here Shred through palm springs across the golf course Cops 'round here scratching their heads Flashing sirens, state patrol.....Uh Oh They're scuffing up the side of my car They're shooting out my tires This ain't no way to go to heaven Buzzbomb cornered at the 7-11 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This shit is copyrighted 1979,1980,1981,1982,1986,1987 by Decay Music (BMI) =============================================================================== (c)1988 cDc communications by Suicidal Amoeba 1/0/88-34 All Rights Worth Shit
