If I knew right from wrong, baby
I’d probably steal your car
And drive it thru the auto wash
And then I’d break your heart

Whatever game you’re playin’
the house will always win
the righteous, they all suffer
and waste away in beds

thru their slits in bandages
dying without knowing
Your memories will disappear
But your toenails keep on growin’

Just when you’re awakening
that’s when they pull the plug
you say this can’t be happening
peering out from the ditch you dug

Just when you’re awakening, oh yeah.

The dogs of want, they run
Into a fenced alley
The clock is always tickin’ now
My cells are changin’ me

The retro-virus gets stronger
The spirit fizzles out
The stylus of the diamond
digs deeper grooves each round

Oh, Pithecanthropus
I know didn’t have no choice
I hear a contradiction
Deep within your voice
In your voice
in your voice
in your voice

Depression has evolved from this
Rigid social life
Take me to Soutine’s house
or the iris of Van Gough’s eye

So I too, may see the candy
Yellow sweetness of
This peasant’s life is not for rent
This heart is not for love

Stop me if I played this one
But it’s the critic’s choice
Goodbye Hunter S Thompson
Hello Village Voice

Pithecanthropus Man
Doin’ what i understand
this life is for suffering
I heard that from Ayn Rand

This planet is lost in space
I die for you on camera
When I look at the Everglades
I’m at a loss of palabras.

Kamikaze man on call
When the end just can’t be stopped
Jones’n for the atom bomb
Be careful, we just mopped
