Yes this is the campaign

Slithered entrails in the

cargo bay

A neutered is the vastness

Hallow vacuum, check the oxygen tanks

They hibernate, but have

they kissed the ground

Pucker up and kiss the asphalt now

Tease this amputation

Splintered larynx, it

has access now

Cut away, cut away

Send transmission to the one armed scissor

Cut away, cut away

Send transmission from the one armed scissor

from "One-Armed Scissor" by At The Drive-In

got busted

Coming through customs

With a suitcase

Full of tapes

It was special

Tape recording

And they grabbed me

While I was boarding

Then they hit me

And they beat me

And they told me

They don't like me

And I crashed

In my Nash

We can crash

In my Nash

etc.

Transformation of everyday life

Pursue the revolution of caps

People just don't want to know

Inedible corpse in your mouth

Tear down

Wreck them

Free time

Corpse In Your Mouth

Specialisation divides

Later we breathe

Asigh of relief

Definitive voice of the corpse.

from "Corpse In Your Mouth " by the mighty NERVE RACK. Side Two, track two of their 1990 debut album "Gnaw".

This wasn't one of mine, but I did the backing vox on the chorus, and came up with the riffs....

There's an airline plane

Flies to heaven everyday

Past the pearly gates

If you want to ride this train

Have your ticket in your hand

Before it is too late

If the world looks wrong

And your money's spent and gone

And your friend has turned away

You can get away to heaven

On this aeroplane

Just bow your head and pray

Them's got ears, let them hear

Them's got eyes, let them see

Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies

Airline to Heaven.Woody Guthrie

And the grave-digger puts on the forceps

The stone mason does all the work

The barber can give you a haircut

The carpenter can take you out to lunch

I just want to play on my pan-pipes

I just want to drink me some wine

as soon as you're born you start dying

so you might as well have a good time

Sheep go to heaven

Goats go to hell

Sheep go to heaven

Goats… go to hell

Sheep go to Heaven ~ Cake

One of my favourite songs by one of the great bands to come out of the UK punk revolution. Have the whole lyric...

The Adverts - "Bored Teenagers"

We're talking into corners.

Finding ways to fill the vacuum.

And though our mouths are dry,

We talk in hope to hit on something new.

Tying yourself to the railway track,

It's one way to revive but no way to relax.

We're just bored teenagers.

Looking for love,

Or should I say emotional rages.

Bored teenagers.

Seeing ourselves as strangers.

We talk about the whys and wherefores.

Do we really care at all?

Talk about the frailty of words.

Is rarely meaningful.

When we're sitting watching the 'planes.

Burn up through the night like meteorites.

We're just bored teenagers.

Looking for love,

Or should I say emotional rages.

Bored teenagers.

Seeing ourselves as strangers.

Bored teenagers.

One of my favourite tracks, by one of my favourite bands of all time; please, have the whole lyric...

Rudimentary Peni - "Tower Of Strength"

Tower of strength takes to the sea,

Scours ocean via quay,

Same old story, muscle-bound and gory,

Brand new story: death without glory,

Infinite story so new, so hoary

Build a tower of strength and watch it weaken,

Construct high hopes as the brightest beacon.

Watch the seagulls eat the trash

You contemptuosly ditch

Do you know a seagull?

Do you know a wreck?

Are you tired of the tide?

Are you tired of the tide?

Roll in a rock pool, come let's hide

Do you know a raging wind?

Do you know a seagull?

Do you know a wreck?

Do you know a raging wind?

Are you tired of the tide?

Are you tired of the tide?

Roll in a rock pool, come let's hide

Tower of strength takes to the sea, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Burning The Boats-Madness

The government have announced

That London Bridge is to be closed

Under the full moon of May the third

All the light houses and seaside roads

No I never heard I never read in the news

Come on tell me, who's this for ?

Lighting the questions and

Burning the boats one by one

Burning the boats one by one by

Tap, tap, tap, birds that sing,

Telephone calls that do not ring,

One, two, three, what's the time ?

Who's that hanging off my line ?

I know that nothing lasts for ever

And I'm just waiting for the sun to set

Blowing dust from my loud hailer, on the roof.

Come on tell me, who's this for ?

Lighting the questions and

Burning the boats one by one

Burning the boats one by one

Burning the boats one by one by

The ministry of co-operation

Are washed and hanging on the line

There's a million burning questions

To set the Thames alight

Now I've joined an exclusive club

Just by being more than poor

I saw the deputy chairman, on the floor.

Come on tell me, who's this for ?

Lighting the questions and

Burning the boats one by one

Burning the boats one by one

Burning the boats one by one by

Burning the boats one by one

Burning the boats.

A lady never flirts with strangers

She’d have a heart, she’d be nice

A lady doesn’t wander all over the room

And blow on some other guys dice

Lets keep this party polite

Never get out of my sight

Stick with me baby, I’m the guy that you came in with

Luck be a lady tonight

Luck be a Lady-Frank Sinatra.

Yet another of my very favourite bands yields a lyric for Word Up. Must be my lucky day. Have the whole lyric. Go on, you know you want to...

"World Profit" by Alice Donut

Mormon Tabernacle screaming round the bend:

Your ship is coming in,

your ship is coming in.

And all the economic forecast predict:

My ship is coming in,

my ship is coming in.

(Tongues)

Insects and bugs, arachnids and slugs:

Crawling down my leg,

crawling down my leg.

All the disregarded blood sausage saints:

Pawing out for change,

pawing out for change.

(Tongues)

Leather briefcase, corporate waves:

They're packing in the train.

But I can part the waves,

right down my spine.

They're ozing down my spine.

It's like a tongue of fire,

I've got a tongue of fire.

(Tongues)

I make the soup - a thick gravy soup.

Come and get your spoons,

I'm a world prophet.

Look at my shoes.

(I've got size 12 shoes)

I've only got half a foot.

(Prophets don't fear the bottle)

Walking over puddles,

I'm a world prophet.

I make the soup - a thick gravey soup.

Come and get your spoons,

I'm a world prophet.

Put on your suits,

your dark navy suits.

Get back into the streets,

and make a profit - a false profit.

Word up: "stew"

These are AWESOME lyrics, I'll give you all of them! Here you go

I Hate Myself-Dead Milkmen

Smokin' Banana Peels

I hate myself - hate myself

And you - I hate you

I hate myself - hate myself

And you - I hate you

Roses are red and

Violets are blue

I hate me and

I hate you

I hate my life and I hate yours

I hate my life and I hate yours

Let's get together and make a pact

Let's get together and make a pact

Let's get together and end it all

Let's get together in a bathroom stall

I - I take drugs, I take drugs

And Glue - I sniff glue

I - I take drugs, I take drugs

And Glue - I sniff glue

Roses are red and

Violets are blue

I take drugs and

I sniff glue

I hate my life and I hate yours

I hate my life and I hate yours

Let's get together and make a pact

Let's get together and make a pact

Let's get together and slit our wrists

Let's get together and do the twist

I eat lye soap - eat lye soap

And stew and I eat stew

I eat lye soap - eat lye soap

And stew and I eat stew

Roses are red and

Violets are blue

I take eat soap and

I eat stew

I hate my life and I hate yours

I hate my life and I hate yours

Let's get together and make a pact

Let's get together and make a pact

Let's get together and end it all

Let's get together in a bathroom stall

--

"Hush little baby don't say a word : "I woke up, can't wait to eat

And never mind that noise you heard : Got my cereal, boy I was beat

It just the beasts under your bed : Opened the fridge and to my dismay

In your closet in your head!!!" : There was no milk my mother will pay"

Word up:sieve

Gracious , that was quick; must be some kind of a record! I chose sandwich first off, then changed to stew at the last moment. Didn't expect such a quick response...The Dead Milkmen too: where did such a good Christian youngster as yourself unearth The Dead Milkmen??? :o
