1 Welcome to Planet Motherfucker/Psychoholic Slag 06:17
[Intro]
(Demonic noises, shrieks)(“Fuckin’ kiss me”)Woven in the surface a premonition of a land erupting
A sparkling occasion of a city crashdown overhead
Revolv’n in a whirlpool a drag-o-rama
Walk’n on the sidewalk so let me see ya
Howl’n through the keyhole, “God damn, swept away”[Chorus]
She shouted—(“Now let’s move”)
She love it—(“Let’s take the back door”)
Get in away yeah!I concentrate the midnight without the benefit of ceremony
Whoever said, “The one who strips your soul is
The one that got away”
A weather-beaten angel descending to embrace the cemetery
Got love—so mystifying “God damn, swept away”[Chorus](“Oh, wow!”
“Cool it.”
“What’s that, jock?”
“Beat it.”
“You wanna start a rumble?”)Voodoo beat on the mind, the digs too deep to find
Something has got to give, man (psych-out)
Racketeer or star, you are just what you are
Don’t play the misty, baby! (get you)
Into a river sky, electro nation cry, “I need another…
Now”Drift beyond the sleeping the moon is shift’n
Shadows on her fig-
Ure—swamptime locomotion “I can’t take it, anymore!”
Sunlight through the shutters illuminating moment to the moment
Buzz a halo over “god damn, swept away”[Chorus](“Do you have to open graves to find girls to fall in love with?”)Planet pretty kill
Motherfucker hang me on the thrills
Psychoholic slag
Tomorrow yeah it’s another dragPicnic in the homeland — like a jesus super-star
Yeah! Kiss me deadly, baby (baby) I know who you are
(Come on) planet pretty kill
Motherfucker hang me on the thrillsNo small heaven I got the left
Hand of the keeper—Meet me in St. Louis “god” a one-
Way ticket’s cheaper yeah! Time-travel i’m walk’n
(Walk’n) i got a white line zombie fever (fever) yeah!
Time bomb the hero (hero) yeah get down[Outro]
(“Hula fast shorts, swing with a gassy chick
Turn on to a thousand joys, smile on what happened
Then check what’s gonna happen, you’ll miss what’s happening
Turn your eyes inside and dig the vacuum
Tomorrow, drag”)

(Oh my God!)

Demon-warp is coming alive in 1965Livin’ fast and dying young like a endless poetry
My motor-psycho nightmare freak out inside of me
My soul salvation liberation on the drive

1965(“You’re all shook up, aren’t you baby?”)
(“I never try anything. I just do it.”)
(“Wanna try me?”)Roll’n like a supersonic, another fool that get down on it
Pig sweat a million miles, I got a heart atomic style
I make it look easy, that’s what I said
Blast of silence explodes in my headStep to the moonshine frenzy hail: the resurrection
What’s new, pussycat? Can you dig the satisfaction?
Well you can’t take it with you but you can! In overdrive
Some like it hot and twist’n

Crawl across the water, wave and sink into the sea
Reflecting onto everything, that you can never be

Born to lose the love you choose, destroy another day
Check out!![Chorus]
Sweet’n the ride Black Sunshine

Stare into the T.V. kiss off the pain

Black top rolling below the asphalt drive
A concrete fascination scraping the edge of nothing

The transformed recent walking dead
Zombies guided by a master plan
For complete domination of the Earth.”)
Sink to a level realize no direction

Yeah, the sun burns on me, well
Hell is home, tomb, city, stone
Nail me to another cross, yeah[Chorus]
Pour the gasoline, yeah, burn the fucker clean
Tell me who’d she coo I want her

Dig the demolition everywhere, now
Creep, babe, creep into your ring ‘o’ fire
Burned out on the wire — She don’t care, now[Chorus](“It has been established that persons who have recently died have been returning to life and committing acts of murder. Widespread investigation of reports from funeral homes, morgues, and hospitals has concluded that the unburied dead are coming back to life and seeking human victims. It’s hard for us here to believe what we’re reporting to you, but it does seem to be a fact.”)Yeah! Open the darkness an hour later to the minute
Move under the guilty she went deep into the corner
Snap dog city hypnotize and break the mercury
Rig test — Oil inject freak hallucination
Shot through the backdoor buzz a whirling locomotion
West straight to another, through the sea of loveLife on the line, still in time, you will find “She has gone away.”
Don’t ask why, super sky, live or die, “She has gone away.”
Figure this, no more, sis, Spanish kiss, “She has gone away.”Thrust into a diamond generation
Dexceleration everywhere
Up from hell a missile to the moon and
Zero to the 3 and

Come on, come on, come on, come on, yeah!
A ritual electro-nation – yow!!
11 One Big Crunch 0:21
Only parts of the corpse have been removed
Only parts of the corpse have been removed
Only parts of the corpse have been removed
Only parts of the corpse have been removed
He steps to the water and plunges in
Making far more impression on his skull than on the lady
12 Grindhouse (A Go-Go) 04:05
Listen to the dream of life — a conversation
Hustle me beneath a spark — flesh or reflection
Faith can’t hold insto-matic soul — trapped the light
A fool for love stand’n still — deep is the night[Chorus]
Jump in the back — a pack attack — Gimme that — dig in
Lethal mind — fugitive kind — Hustle!Steal’n back the past ahead – that’s how I’m roll’n
Trick racer so desperate — that’s how I’m living
Dead heat shred the midway air — I see forever
Drag-O-Rama kick’n in — no say never[Chorus]Scrimshaw motherfucker bazooka 5-star cat a howl’n
Kitten got a whip but no escape to bait the prowl’n
If hell is like a woman, said “Take me to the fire”
Shot down! Another desperate love crucifier
Yeah! Boiling out of nowhere — crazyhead decision
Skintight on the action grind into collision yeah!
Breath’n seeped into my head — the gang is bang’n
Pump the creature daddy-o — spring-loaded hang’n
Everything ya always need — right for the taking
Shoot the works the haunted hill house is a shak’n
13 Starface 05:02
(“One. We are one. One is the beginning.”
“Are you one, Herbert?”
“I am not Herbert.”)(“X minus 5 seconds
4…3…2…1”)September in the rain — her sweat come a frozen onto my skin
Eliminate the outerspace and come and get I’m swing’n down it again
Synchronize me — fall away — I believe that I’m wicked on the way
Look alive now![Chorus]
Yeah! Stars explode my eyes — Well, “I been down a long time”
Days crawl away and die — “Forever is a long time”Remember howling “crazy” like at the moonlight superfly
A penetrating powerman “O baby” I’m painted in the sky
Iron fister on the hour
Paralyzing demon flower[Chorus]Surround the pain the love’s insane got a pseudo-systematic gain
Careening through the neon side — a horizontal “mind collide”
Harum scarum holiday — Double deal’n on the ones who say
“Collapse me with a powerblast” Groung to zero roll’n fast
Ride the glide — treasure slide — got a wooden symbol soul inside
“Freeze” the heart — a razor tear pack she doesn’t care
If the pillow jacob sky snatch the pad I don’t deny
Been a long time — been a long timeStep into the wind and watch a red girl come alive
She scream’n to the world “I’m diggin’ on the fact that you will not survive!”
Radiate me — walk away — you shook the devil’s dig deep hand today[Chorus]A million miles an hour – a million miles an hour
A million miles an hour – let’s get inside(“Oh, Herbert, you are stiff!”)
14 Warp Asylum 06:42
Been down, yeah! Well I look down and my
Mind blows away deep in the darkness “illuminate”
Beyond a million miles — Something slid up to my head
Circling around my eye, eye, eyes[Chorus]
And I said, smooth operator says
Get up, get up, and outta here
Smooth operator saysLights band the traffic thunder
Two blocks west of the rest
Tore away the bottom and saw
Life is a test
Beyond a million miles
Well I ricocheted through my head
One hand kills and the other’s cra-a-azy[Chorus]Sail into night, ghost ship a tripping
Struck by the plunge something to see yeah
Bootleg the girl, she is a looker
Pure is the fear that breaks awayStraight to the sun I am a walk’n
State of the art — all that I see
New gods move whipp’n the shore and
Dash on the reef — surf cityI walk alone and stare, man
Right in the sun
Tear-jerk asylum and
Cemetery run
How’d I ever get this far man?
Smooth curves switchback the sweat
Underneath the body, baby
Where what you see is what you
See and
What you
Get(“Thank you so very much. God bless you. Have a ball! And goodnight.”
“A few of these sentences have already begun to take root in your subconscious mind, haven’t they? If you play the record a few more times, you’ll be amazed at how easily you have begun to understand.”)
