v.1
I don't know what it means, to be ugly,
I've just seen what I've seen, and it's ugly,
Lots of people falling down, it's getting ugly,
Lots of gunsmiths in this town, it's getting ugly,

ch.
But I am beautiful in every way,
And I ain't gonna let you put me down today,
No, No, No!


v.2
I want peace & you want war, (when you're ugly),
Let your ass on out that door, (when you're ugly),
I don't need you comin' round, (being ugly),
I ain't gonna let you put me down, (when you're ugly),
ch.
'Cause I am beautiful in every way,
And I ain't gonna let you put me down today,
No, No, No!

Bridge:
Sometimes a word is just a word, and so is ugly.
Sometimes a word is just a word, and so is ugly.
And I ain't gonna let myself feel this way anymore.
I ain't gonna let myself feel this way anymore.
I ain't gonna let myself feel this way anymore.
No, I ain't gonna let you make me feel this way anymore!
No, No, No!

v.3
I want peace & you want war, when you're ugly,
Let your ass on out that door, you're being ugly,
Lots of people feeling down, it's getting ugly,
Lots of bankers in this town, being ugly,
ch.
'Cause we are beautiful in every way,
And we ain't gonna let you put us down today,
No, No, No!

Out:
Sometimes a word is just a word, hey, hey, hey.
Sometimes a word is just a word, hey, hey, hey.
Sometimes a word is just a word, hey, hey, hey.
Sometimes a word is just a word, and so is ugly.

In Memory of Trayvon Martin

 v.1
White is black, but black is not white,
 White is black, and something’s not right,
 White is black, but black is not white,
White is black, and something’s not right.

ch.1 
You have a gun, you’re not afraid
 You never run, from anyone.
You have a gun, you’re not afraid
 You never run, you’ve got your gun.

v.2
White is black, but he is not white,
 White is black, and something’s not right.
You have a gun, he’s got his candy,
 You never run, you’ve got your gun.

ch.2 
And in the moonlight, when black is not white,
Something’s not right, something’s not right,
And in the moonlight, when black is not white,
 Something’s not right, something’s not right,
And so you follow, ‘cause black is not white,
 And something’s not right, something’s not right,
And so you follow, and then you fight,
 Something’s not right, you’ve got your gun tonight,
And he is dead, and he is dead,
 That fuckin’ punk, and now he’s dead,
And in the moonlight, when black is not white,
 You pick a good fight, you’ve got your gun tonight.

v.3 
White is black, but black is not white,
 White is black, and something’s not right.
White is black, but he is not white,
White is black, and something’s not right.

ch.3
 They always get away, they always get away,
 These fuckin’ punks, they always get away,
But not tonight, but not tonight,
 Something’s not right, you’ve got your gun tonight,
They always get away, but not tonight,
You’ve got your gun, and black is not white.
And he is dead, and he is dead,
 That fuckin’ punk, and now he’s dead,
And in the moonlight, when black is not white,
You pick a good fight, you’ve got your gun tonight.

And something's not right.
And something's not right.

You're so pathetic, living in your dreams,

You think you know it all, but you don't know a thing,
You're so pathetic, it makes me want to scream ...

Everything you are is a lie, 
Everything you are is a lie,
Everything you are is a LIE!

And every time you fail, you blame it on the rest,

You raped a thousand angels, of a god you'll never know,
You're so pathetic, we're glad to see you go,
They're wiping up the floor with you, and all of your remains,
You're so pathetic, with that bullet in your brain ...
Br.
And everything you are is a lie,
Everything you are is a lie, 
Everything you are is a lie,
Everything you are is a LIE!

v.1
You …. you melt in the sun. And I … I walk with a gun.
You …. live in my head. And I, yeah I, walk with the dead.
And the world, … turns around, … in my head.

v.2
You, … turned hate into fun, ‘cause you loved everyone. And I, am, just all I outrun.
And I ... say I know how to fly. yeah ... But you, you actually tried.
And my world, … fell apart, … when you died.

v.3
You ... you never harmed anyone. And I, I can’t come undone.
You … flew too close to the sun. And I, … am, … oblivion.
And I don’t, … no I don't, … need this gun.
And my mind, is gone, oblivion.

v.1
Sandy was a freak,
She was just like me,
She was just like me,
So I set her free,
Free to tie me up,
Free to tie me down,
She was just like me,
She was such a FREAK!!!


v.2
Mutant loves his meat,
Such a special treat,
Such a special treat,
It's me he loves to eat,
With butter on my chest,
How can he resist?,
When I've got all of this!
And he is such a FREAK!!!


v.3
We are all just freaks,
You are just like me,
You are just like me,
So I set you free,
Free to be yourself,
Free to have your fun,
Your moment in the sun,
And God is such a FREAK!!!

Bleed

v.1
Sittin' in this darkness,
Smoke my weed,
And you don't understand,
What it means to me

Hiding in the shadows,
With my disease,
And I hope you don't catch,
What's inside of me


v.2
Bucket full of kerosene,
All over me,
Johnny with a match now,
Guess it's time to bleed

Sitting at this table,
Got to roll this weed,
People like to party,
Guess it's time to bleed


v.3
Sitting in this darkness,
Got to roll this weed,
People like to party,
When it's time to bleed

And the Mushroom Lady,
Says drink this tea,
It'll make you feel better,
When it's time to bleed

Verse 1:

I am a god,

I write in stone,

All my decrees are my own,

Because I am a god.

And I love you.

Verse 2:

Because you are a god

You make me happy,

You set my world on fire,

Because you are a god.

And you love me, and we are free,

Because we are the gods!

Bridge (David Bowie):

Ground control to Major Tom,
Countdowns started, engines on,

Start ignition and may god’s love be with you …

Solo Break:

And may god’s love be with you (2x)

And may god’s love be, And may god’s love be, And may god’s love be with you


Verse 3:
We are the gods,

We fly to the stars,

We have the scars to prove,

That we are the gods.

And we are love

And you’re love too.

 Verse 4:
We are the gods,
We write in stone,
And all our dreams are our own,
Because we are the gods.
And we love you,
And you love us too.
Because we are the gods!

Chorus:

Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t

Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t

Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t Cry ...

Verse 1:
All I ever wanted was a hug and a kiss,
But all you ever gave me was the end of your first.
All I ever wanted was a nice warm bed,
But all you ever gave me was a kick in the head,
I used to wear my heart right on my sleeve,
But now it's in a cage, and it don't bleed.

Chorus:
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t Cry ...
Verse 2:
All I ever wanted was to feel your love,
But all you ever gave me was a velvet glove,
And ever since the day you stole my pride, 
I feel like my soul has up and died.


Verse 3:
All I ever wanted was a hug and a kiss,
But all you ever gave me was the end of your fist.
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t

All I ever wanted was to feel your love,
But all you ever gave me was a velvet glove.
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t
Mother Say, Mother Say, Mother Say Please Don’t

I feel like my soul is already dead,
'Cause all you ever gave me was a trip in the head,
I used to wear my heart out on my sleeve,
But now it's in a cage, and it don't bleed.

Final Chorus:

Never say, Never Say, Never Say Please Don't,
Never say, Never Say, Never Say Please Don't,
Never say, Never Say, Never Say Please Don't Cry

Never say, Never Say, Never Say Please Don't,
Never say, Never Say, Never Say Please Don't,
Never say, Never Say, Never Say Please Don't Cry




Hometown 

"Hometown"
by Beth Isbell
©2012 BeThisBell


v.1
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger,
It’s passing me by, it’s passing me by, uh-oh (2x)
Schenectady why you fucking with me, don’t you do it bitch,
I want to die, with New York in my eye!


v.2
Queens and indians murdered my whole village, they burnt it down,
They're dancing round, and round and round (2x)
In 1748, they burnt it down, killed my hometown,
they burnt it down to the ground


ch.1
I see orange and atomic junk, …
And lots of useless crap!
I see an American locomotive …
The last Mohican chops it down!


v.3
Vonnegut can see my twisted future, from his front porch,
He wrote it down, in my hometown (2x)
Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb, in my hometown,
We light one up and burn it down

ch.2
All my dreams have died in this city …
Schenectady, Schenectady!
The city that lights and hauls the world (3x) …
And all our crap to you!


v.4
Things they never change, they stay the same, in my hometown,
It’s burning down to the ground (2x)
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger, so I light one up,
in my hometown, and burn it down! (2x)
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger, so I light one up,
and my hometown is burning now!

Hurricane 

"Hurricane"

v.1
If I was just a hurricane,
My fat psychatomic mind would,
Blow you down,
To the ground,
You'd fall down


v.2
And you'd say, "Hey, Mr. Hurricane,
Why'd you have to go and blow me down,
To the ground?
That's not nice,
Don't you know?"


v.3
And I'd say, "No, I'm just a hurricane,
And I don't really understand the ways,
Of your world,
Or of girls,
Or of girls."


v.4
And you'd say, "Hey Mr. Hurricane,
Why don't you fly straight up to the moon,
And book a room,
On the dark side,
Of the moon!"


v.5
And you'd say, "Hey Mr. Hurricane"
Why don't you take a rocket to the moon,
And book a room,
And build a wall,
To hide it all."


v.6
And I'd say, "No, I'm just a hurricane,
And I can't really fly to outer space,
Don't you know?
I just won't go,
Don't you know?
And you can't make me!"


br.
Breathe ...
Breathe in the air.


v.7
If I was just a hurricane,
My fat psychatomic mind would,
Blow you down,
To the ground,
You'd fall down,
And roll around,
On the ground!
