Track Name: Worm-eaten Apple (Remaster)
WORM-EATEN APPLE

The world is an apple on top of my head
Worm eaten apple yeah that’s what I said
Hundred thousand pounds are weighin me down
World weary apple is my world weary crown

Come on William Burroughs,
Come on William Tell
Shoot this apple off or send me to hell

Come on sweet bottle come and take me away
Come on sweet bottle come and wash it away

Come on sweet sex come and take me away
Come on sweet sweat come and wash me away

The world is an apple on top of my head
Worm eaten apple yeah that’s what I said
Hundred thousand pounds are weighin me down
World weary apple is my world weary crown

Track Name: Nasty (Remaster)
NASTY

I saw you and you caught my eye
You’re too cute and you look so fly
With your too-tight top and your too-small skirt
It was inevitable that we started to flirt

I said oh, oh
You’re Nasty

You’re coming home with me
You look like you’re the one
We’ll get between the sheets
I know we’ll have some fun

You’re coming home with me
I know that you’re the one
I need you under me
And then we’ll have some fun

I hope you don’t think I’m crude
When I explain the way
You put me in the mood
I can’t look away

When your soft velvet pants
Reveal the shape of you
As you start to dance
It’s all that I can do

I said oh, oh
You’re Nasty

(come with me)
(come with me)

The salty sweet smell of sex
On the back of your gorgeous neck
Is driving my instincts crazy
I’ve got to be alone with you baby

You’re coming home with me
I know that you’re the one
We’ll get between the sheets
And then we’ll have some fun

You’re coming home with me
I know that you’re the one
I need you over me
And then we’ll have some fun

Track Name: It's Hard (Remaster)
IT'S HARD

I hate you
I love you
You make me sick
You make me thick... as a brick

It’s HARD
It’s HARD

I know it’s wrong
But it’s been so long
When I’m with you
The things you make me... want to do

It’s HARD
It’s HARD

I hate you
I love you
You make me sick
You make me thick... as a brick

It’s HARD
It’s HARD

Track Name: STFU (Remaster)
STFU

(you talk and talk and talk and talk)

Your words, a swarm of mosquitos
Assaulting my ears
You’re completely oblivious
That everyone hears

You take so long to say so little
Save your breath and spare the air
You keep on talking though nobody cares

Shut The Fuck Up
Shut The Fuck Up

(you talk and talk and talk and talk)

The room fills with your useless words
As you drone away
A squawking flock of ragged birds
Feathering my nest of hate

You take so long to say so little
Save your breath and spare the air
You keep on talking though nobody cares

Shut The Fuck Up
Shut The Fuck Up

(break)

You take so long to say so little
Save your breath and spare the air
You keep on talking though nobody cares

Shut The Fuck Up

(you talk and talk and talk and talk)

SHUT UP

Track Name: Little Boxes (Remaster)
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same

There’s a pink one and a green one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

And the people in the houses
All went to the University
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same

And there’s doctors and lawyers
And business executives
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

And they all play on the golf course
And drink their martinis dry,
And they all have pretty children
And the children go to school

And the children go to summer camp
And then to the University
Where they are put in boxes
And they come out all the same.

And the boys go into business
And marry and raise a family
In boxes made of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

There’s a pink one and a green one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

Track Name: Thunderpussy (Remaster)
THUNDERPUSSY

There’s an old friend in town
We love when she comes… around
We can’t wait to get down
With that velvet brown
pussy

Thunderpussy

She’s so salty sweet
The taste will knock you off your feet
So come in off the street
And try to take the heat of

Thunderpussy
Thunderpussy

(break)

When Thunderpussy comes around
Lick it up and suck it down
You’ll howl and stomp your feet
When you taste her salty sweet she’s

Thunderpussy
Thunderpussy

There’s an old friend in town
We love when she comes… around

Track Name: Lipstick on my Whiskey (Remaster)
LIPSTICK ON MY WHISKEY

Woke up this morning
found lipstick on my… whiskey bottle
said I woke up this morning,
found lipstick on my… whiskey bottle

Don’t know how it got there
but I’m thinkin that it just
might be trouble

Want to find that woman
Put her lips on the tip
Of my favorite whiskey

Said I want to find that woman
put her lips on the tip
of my favorite whiskey

Have a feelin when I do well she just might be
a little bit frisky

When I find that woman
with the bright pink
juicy lips

Said when I find that woman
with the hot, pink
juicy lips

Gonna sip some more whiskey
and give those lips a
big fat kiss

She got lipstick on my whiskey
She got lipstick on my whiskey
She got lipstick on my whiskey

Track Name: Grinning Skulls (Remaster)
GRINNING SKULLS

poison smiles in my face as they reach to
shake my hand with flesh-colored claws

poison words in my ears as they speak,
numbing my brain with slow poison words

(true colors play when you turn away)

sugar threats on lips smiling sweetly,
mouths that befriend you when you’re alone

candy lies in mouths dripping venom
shaped by tongues that scrape the flesh from your bones

sharp white lies bite into your skin
your belly tight with pain
soft sad eyes hiding the lies
that rip you again and again

poison smiles
poison words
sugar threats
candy lies

true colors play when you turn away…
don’t turn your back on them now

peel the skin from the faces around me
and I’m surrounded by Grinning Skulls

betrayed, I’m betrayed by slow poison smiles
betrayed, I’m betrayed by slow poison words
betrayed, I’m betrayed by slow poison lies
betrayed, I’m betrayed by slow poison thoughts
in the tiny minds that lie inside
the circle of grinning skulls

a circle of slow death surrounds me

Track Name: Sea of Sharks (Remaster)
SEA OF SHARKS

I’m adrift on a raft
in a sea of sharks
I fear I won’t last
in this sea of sharks

Here comes the swarm
the sea boils around me
Here comes the storm
dark clouds move beneath me

blood in the water
(ears, bleeding)
blood in the water
(eyes, bleeding)
blood in the water
somebody save me

Hope is a raft
in a sea of sharks
Hope doesn’t last
in a sea of sharks

They gather around me
The sea becomes dark
Only sharks survive
in a sea of sharks

blood in the water
(ears, bleeding)
blood in the water
(eyes, bleeding)
blood in the water
somebody save me

The sun is giving me visions
I’m beginning to see faces in the water,
Faces I know all too well..

In a sea of sharks, hope is a raft
In a sea of sharks, nothing lasts for long
A sea of sharks thrashes the calm sea
A sea of sharks boils around me

Track Name: The Green Manalishi (Remaster)
THE GREEN MANALISHI

Now when the day goes to sleep
and the full moon looks
And the night is so black
that the darkness cooks

Then you come sneakin around
Makin me do things I don’t want to do

I can’t believe that you
need my love so bad
Always creepin around,
tryin to drive me mad

Bustin in all my dreams
Makin me see things I don’t want to see

Cause you’re the Green Manalishi
with the Two-pronged Crown
All my dryin is up,
sall your bringin is down

Just takin my love, then slip away
Leavin me here just
tryin to keep from following you
