Track Name: Keep Us Separated
I've been living with your shit
For years and years don't you forget
Now you're another year older, but nothing has changed
Except the way you talk and the way you behave

The words you say mean nothing to me
What the hell is "peace" and "groovy"?
What the hell?
Why can't you talk to me no more?
None of this makes any sense,
Your intellect, my ignorance
Keeps us separated til the end

Now all your friends look weird to me
I don't see how you don't agree
We got gangsters, hippies, cowboys, and punks
You just don't understand
See, things were different back then

Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want
Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want
Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want
Blah blah blah I do what the fuck I want blah blah do what the fuck I want

Blah blah blah blah
Track Name: Ledge
I woke up on a ledge
Outside a window pane
Thirty stories high
It was starting to pour down rain
My feet were getting slippery
And I could not feel my toes
The temperature kept dropping
Icicles on my nose

How did I get here in the first place?
Was it too much living on the edge?
I've got no time to sit and worry, my love
I've got to get myself off this ledge

Looked to my left
Looked to my right
I made sure that I didn't look down
A kid peeked out the window
He said, "you make a pretty sad clown"
I said, "Hey, kid! Can you help me out?"
But he ran away in fear
His mom popped out and said
"You sonofabitch, now the cops are coming here"

How did I get here in the first place?
Was it too much living on the edge?
I've got no time to sit and worry, my love
I've got to get myself off this ledge

The cops showed up
They were dressed in blue
They said "jump, boy, jump"
"That's what you'd better do"
I said, "I can't cuz I can't trust you"
They said, "Hold tight while we hit the booze"
Cops got drunk and they went to bed
They left me standing on that ledge
I thought to myself, "man, what a mess"
What happened next was anyone's guess
Track Name: 8 Feet Tall
I was born into rock n roll
It came and found me and filled my soul
It told me to let life go
And since then mine's been out of control

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on

When I walk on down farther into town
And they see my face all they do is frown
I tell em that I came to rage
And all they do is say, "You better behave"

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on

And I can't talk to the other kids
Mama said I never did
I never could look them in the eyes
What's the point when everybody's telling lies?

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on

I can't go where the other kids play
Cuz when I show up they all walk away
I never learned to play their games
And they never even learned my name

I'm 8 feet tall
But I still feel small
But your love makes me feel strong
I'm pressin on
Track Name: Powerplay
Piss on the man
Piss on the man
Piss on the man, it's a motherfucking powerplay

I showed up 15 late
Then I took me a cigarette break
I got full from the food I ate
And I didn't even hesitate to break my plate

Piss on the man
Piss on the man
Piss on the man, I ain't holding his hand--no way

Piss on the man
Piss on the man,
Piss on the man, it's a motherfucking powerplay

I stole me some silverware
And some money that I could share
That's when the bossman started to stare
That stupid motherfucker thinks that I still care--I don't

The bossman gave me praise
We even talked about a raise
That's when I put him in his place
Because we both know it wasn't gonna happen anyway

Piss on the man
Piss on the man
Piss on the man, I ain't holding his hand--no way

Piss on the man
Piss on the man,
Piss on the man, it's a motherfucking powerplay
Track Name: Extra Credit
I took two instead of one
I don't know why, it just sounded fun
The doctor says I shouldn't take none
But I took two instead of one

I took three instead of two
It seemed like something I should do
So don't judge me and I won't judge you
I took three instead of two

I took four instead of three
Instead of three, I took four
I took four instead of three
Instead of three, I took four

Almost almost overdose
Almost almost comatose
Almost almost overdose
Almost almost comatose
