Track Name: Scene of the Crime
dab in the back
stuck up in the middle
midi attack
rifles through the riddle
wax on the slab
waning on the stab
catty cathedral
needles and wheedles

revisiting way too long
the scene of the crime
but you didn’t take the time to say

kid you won’t stop
pollenate the people
dripping airdrop
flower to the steeple
deaf to the bone
wading in the drone
ratings may flop
waiting to atone

revisiting way too long
the scene of the crime
but you never took the time to say
Track Name: Barf in the Tube
i hope i don’t barf in the tube
will i or won’t
i don’t know what to do

feeling sprat
what do you make of that?

when she walks
the world is flat
and i really don’t know
about that

around my head
the bats from the vats instead

what she said
on the edge of bed

why i have to go?
how will i get home?
there’s no radio
please leave me alone
Track Name: No Dime
no dime
plenty of time to spend on you

no way
to face a day that’s not with you

but i'm not strong
so don't wait too long
to come through

no mind
no body, no sky too

no space
no face, nothing to do

while i rehearse
how to make things worse
(don’t make things worse)
Track Name: Beehive
she got a beehive
put it on her head
spray-painted red
to make you come alive
'til you wish you was dead

left gum on the drum
she's just having fun
never mind the doldrums
got fifty-two problems
but a stick ain't one

put it in automatic
order up some asiatic
never mind the syntax
mind your own beeswax
you’re just static
