It's a New Work Week same as the last one Different faces, but they're just the same... It's a New Work Week tell me " Can I help you?" maybe some perfume...for your tired feet? I'll be your slave in a heartbeat though we thought that it was dead... but you know You're Always Right it's at the mall instead... It's always free admission and it's always fun for you to get out some aggression We've only just begun- we're in Retail Hell! ...and if you leave your name and number we can waste some more time-cause you know it's as good as your Gold Card... Why don't you shop around but never spend a dime It's the story of your life You walk out empty handed... Retail Hell- there's a Price to Pay Retail Hell- You're In My Way Retail Hell- there's Lots to do... Heavenly...Here in the Zoo ...and we Both know you Wont- but you Want another size... "I'm sorry that size is very popular..." and, “Can I call around?” “It must be in your chain?!” Maybe some other time...it's a SALES DAY!!! Retail Hell- there's a Price to Pay Retail Hell- You're In My Way -hey Retail Hell- there's Lots to do... Heavenly...here in the Zoo
Slow Suicide 02:20
When you're down-and you can't get up When you're down- and you're out of luck Then it's time- for you to pack it up and now you're down in the bottom of the bottle again.. You knew all along You were gonna do wrong As you looked in the mirror and said "Whose the finest one of all?"... I do believe it's me Lookin' in the mirror at the brand new King of Pain... Have another ciggerette Smoke it straight down-Burn it straight down Straight Down... and maybe in a while It won't be so bad You'll manage to smile... It's Slow Suicide
Turn up the heat cause it's a zillion degrees and you say You see things in different ways and you know You know-all that you know and you say I don't know - and I'm happy Happy to say Anything that you want... Step on the peddle cause were movin' way too fast "Faster!" she says "Step on the gas!" and "Let's go! Let's go! yeah-Let's get away..." and you know you know... and I'm happy- Happy to say Anything that you want Anyplace- any time Anyway Anyhow... and She say's " One and one ... don't always add up to two" Two and three- leave it all up to me... and I don't know but let's get to four right away and I don't know and I'm happy Happy to say Anything that you want Anyplace- any time Anyway Anyhow Baby tell me you're mine mine mine...
You can judge me Until your face is blue There's nothin' to do Don't ask me I don't have a clue... Havin' a Clue You've nothin' on me I've nothin on you Don't ask me I don't have a clue Stars in your eyes are fading fast and now you realise that you're movin' way too fast and you don't know-just who you are but who knows You might see your Faveorite Star... Sunday morning and you wake up Hit the alarm Goin' off inside your heart and your mind.. and I don't care-you don't really know I don't care- you don't really mind I don't care...
Hey Captain Spaceman Way up in the sky... Captain Spaceman Lookin' down on me Big ol' head Big ol' eyes Take me for a ride please ...and Captain Spaceman I wonder if it's true what the grocery papers said about you Will you take me up in the sky with no memory until I'm hypnotized... Captain Spaceman I'm sure that you can clearly see that I'm begging you Down on my knees and if you take me I'll be happy to go Kiss this goodbye Just leave it below... call me Captain Spaceman
I've been down and I've been laid out I've been tossed and turned and played with... Time and time-it goes so fast On the line and you're out of gas dodoododoododo I've been hopelessly in love Stars so bright and moon above... Light the candles - Dim the lights Kiss the mornin' sunshine dodoododoododo I've been workin' slavin' drivin' All my life and I'm so tired Now I'm up at six again Where's my head? Where's my head? dodoododoododo
