Lyrics

All the way from Palm Springs, just out of detox
Show him a warm welcome, let's get some applause

Greetings all, hello welcome to my show
I'm sure you'll have fun watching me juggle
8 balls at one time I'm no fucking mime
I play practical jokes this squirting flower
That wasn't flour that blew up your nose
It's my special blend of Ex, Coke and K
You should be okay in several hours

He's got oversized shoes, and ill fitting clothes
That is real blood dripping from his fake red nose

I'm Cokie the Clown I will trip you down 
Those 12 giant steps I brought you all presents
Against good judgment but being a good host
You all have been dosed the kettle corn's been laced
The fudge has been lined you're having a great time
But you might not recall from rohypnol 
In the lemonade cokie homemade

He's the happiest clown with the biggest frown
He's Cokie the Clown

Lyrics:


I moved from Massachusetts 'cause I couldn't be controlled.
I moved from Massachusetts 'cause it was fuckin' cold.
I moved from Massachusetts 'cause I wanted to ten fold.
I moved from Massachusetts because my house got sold. 

Straight Outta Massachusetts 

I moved to California, I heard it was the place to be.
I moved to California to the San Fernando Valley.
I moved in with my mother 'cause I could afford the rent.
I moved to California, they thought I had a speech impediment.

Straight Outta Massachusetts 

I moved from Massachusetts 'cause I couldn't be controlled.
I moved from Massachusetts 'cause it was fuckin' cold.
I moved from Massachusetts 'cause I did what I was told.
I moved from Massachusetts when I was five years old.

Lyrics:

This is not a test, not true, this kind of is a test of our endurance
There's really no one left to place the blame on and hang in effigy
This was not ruined by a regime, it also took a hundred million
Of angry, stupid, scared, pathetic populace to complete the deed

And it's a long, long way down
And there's no climbing back so wave bye bye
And it's a long, long free dive
So fill your lungs with air and grab a weight
It's been a long time coming and well deserved

It's time to redefine what we call neighborhoods and start to trust your neighbors
Circle the figurative wagons and figure it's gonna be 
A long painful de-evolution that could last for decades
America as we know it, is finished, fermenting and flailing

And it's a long, long way down
The parachutes are gone so grab a smoke
And it's a long, long free fall
No signs of soft landing bon grave voyage
It's been a long time coming and well deserved

Lyrics:


I haven't got any more excuses
We've gone way past alcohol abuses
It's too late
We gotta celebrate codependence day

Self-caused afflictions
Magnified with chemical addictions
We're on a date
We get to celebrate codependence day

Veteran role-player
You're the addict, I'll be the enabler
You wanna play?
Let's make every day codependence

See symptoms
It gets clearer
Kinda just like looking in a mirror
Celebrate our disarray on codependence day

With fireworks and power lines
Attempt to meld resolute minds
January first through New Year's Eve
We seem to spend rationalizing

No bass on this song :'(


Lyrics:

My father had dementia
He lied in bed for months
Once in a while he'd call me
And ask me to fly down
I told him that I'd love to
But I had things to do
And so he died without his son
I heard about it drunk after a show

My mother battled cancer
For over seven years
I nursed her and I held her
When time was running out
The night before she left me
I drank scotch all night
And thanked her for everything she'd done
Raising me alone wasn't much fun

So dad I can forgive you, 
But I'll never forget, 
Months I wouldn't see you and when I did
You'd be out with your friends all night
Alone and only nine
I watched the outer limits
And scared out of my mind
I wonder if you felt the same
The days before you died
I wonder if you even knew
Why I wouldn't come around
I bet if you had been there, 
There wouldn't be this song

2006 goodbye parents
For once I'm sincere
2006 that was my orphan year
