Track Name: Fire
Santa Dog's a Jesus Fetus
Santa Dog's a Jesus Fetus
Santa Dog's a Jesus Fetus
Has no presents,
Has no presence
In the future...
...In the future

A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves
A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves
A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves
A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves
A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves

A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness severed sleeves
Bing, Bing, Bing, Bong, Bong, Bong, Snowness severed sleeves

A fleeting and a greeting scene of effervescent eves
Bing, Bing, Bing, Bong, Bong, Bong, Effervescent eves

A greeting and a meeting team of hoarse and frosty words
Bing, Bing, Bing, Bong, Bong, Bong, Hoarse and frosty words

A greeting and a cheating team and other noxious herbs
Bing, Bing, Bing, Bong, Bong, Bong, Other noxious herbs

A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves
A fleeting and a sleeting scene of snowness and of sleeves

Santa Dog's a Jesus Fetus
Santa Dog's a Jesus Fetus
Santa Dog's a Jesus Fetus
Has no presents
Has no presence
In the Future!
Track Name: Lizard Lady
What's a woman going to do
But throw away her bread;
Her feet are feeling funny
As she lies beneath the bed;
She reminisces of the pungent Adriatic Sea,
And then she crawls and counts her cans
And twitches like a flea.

What she really likes to do
Is sit upon a pew,
And make believe that time has stopped
And motionless is new;
Planes are stranded in the sky
And drains are stopping, too,
And she alone is laughing under
Eyelids full of flu.
She scurries hurries worries that
The wicked will receive
Their candy from a handsome man
And coffee from a thief;
She gazes at a hourglass and
Asks it if it cares,
And then she wonders if the lizard
Likes his lettuce rare:


"Lizard, yes a lizard, little lizard of the sea,
Conspicuously alcoholic, flicks his tongue at me!
Release me lizard! Licking lizard,
blizzard of the bea,
Mushed inside a sock you still
dare me --- to die
Dare me to die --- at home..."

"Coating all my lungs with honey,
Sticky coating running runny,
Feet of lizard fly!
And stop and fly and stop and fly
And flicker tongue is licking out
To find me --- feel me. Hide!
Hide from the tongue!
The tongue is coming! Cruising! Oozing!
Over land and under ashes,
In the sunlight, see -- it flashes,
Find a fly and eat his eye,
But don't believe in me.
Don't believe in me.
Don't believe in me."
Track Name: Red Rider
Cellar doors were open
For the storms were out that night
The night reflected from the leaves
The sky was still too bright

I saw her passing as the wind
Was rising in the air
She rode upon a red bicycle
And she had red hair
Track Name: Weight-Lifting Lulu
Sweet scented woman, your strange sounding name
Was Weight Lifting Lulu, but I'm not to blame
For putting the gun in your grand-daddy's hand
As he was imprinting your face in the sand.
The part of the pork chop that you left behind,
Has given me breakfast and rendered me blind;
I still want you, baby, and I miss you so much.
I hated your body, but I needed your touch.
Weight Lifting Lulu
Is under the lawn
Weight Lifting Lulu
Forever is gone.
Track Name: Rabbit Habit
If I see a rabbit, I grab it affectionately
I’ve got the rabbit habit and nobody has it like me
I love the rabbits and I know the rabbits love me
I love the rabbits and I know the rabbits love
I know the rabbits love MEEEEEEE
He loves the rabbits and he knows the rabbits love he
He loves the rabbits and he knows the rabbits love he
I love the rabbits and I know the rabbits love me
I love the rabbits and I know the rabbits love MEEEEEEEE!
