Birth School Work Death-The Godfathers Cover (4:32)
(from the Local H/Blank Theory split 7" record)

Been turned around til upside down
Been all at sea until I've drowned
And I've felt torture, I've felt pain
Just like that film with Michael Caine
I've been abused, I've been confused
And I've kissed the government's shoes
And I been high and I been low
And I don't know where to go

Birth, school, work, death


Birth, school, work, death

And cocaine was the love you gave
From the cradle to the grave
Boys and girls don't understand
The devil makes work for idle hands
I cut myself but I don't bleed
'Cause I don't get what I need
It doesn't matter what I say
Tomorrow's still another day

Birth, school, work, death
Birth, school, work, death

 

Yeah, I been high and I been low
And I don't know where to go
I'm living on the never never never
This time it's gonna be forever
I'll live and die, don't ask me why
I wanna go to paradise
And I don't need your sympathy
There's nothing in this world for me

 

awwwwwwwwoooohhhhhhhhh

Birth, school, work, death

Birth, school, work, death

die mother fucker die mother fucker

Birth, school, work, death

Birth, school, work, death

Birth, school, work, death

It's A Long Way To The Top-ACDC Cover (4:48)
(from the Pack Up The Cats import bonus disc)

Riding down the highway
Going to a show
Stopping on the by-way
Playing rock n' roll
Getting drunk
Getting stoned
Getting beat up
Broken bones
Getting had
Getting took
I tell ya, folks
It's harder than it looks
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n' roll (x2)
Do ya think it's easy doing one-night stands?
Try playing in a rock n' roll band
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n' roll
Yeah
No town motel
Make you wanna cry
Made it to the hotel
Know the reason why
Getting old
Getting gray
Getting ripped off
Underpaid
Getting so sick of that
That's how it goes
Playing in a band
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n' roll (x2)
Do ya wanna be a star of stage and screen?
Look out, it's rough and mean
It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock n' roll (x4)
Oh, it's a long way (x4)

Smothered In Hugs-Guided By Voices (4:18)
(from the Gravesend soundtrack)(also on Hi Fi MF cassette single)

In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fun was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello
And the watchers of the flood
Were busy in the chambers
Making sure there was new blood
To sustain their dying vein
But I believe you
No need for further questioning
I'm gonna leave with you
You can teach me all you know
Which way do we go now
A trip to tall the windows
I really don't know now
I really don't know
In the winter that you left
There was business as usual
With the same ol' fears and frustration
The word got out, it's really such a pity
The judges and the saints
And the textbook committee
Decided you should be left out
Not even mentioned
But I believe you
No need for further questioning
I'm gonna leave with you
You can teach me all you know
Which way do we go now
A trip to tall the windows
I really don't know now
I really don't know
But I believe you
No need for further questioning
I'm gonna leave with you
You can teach me all you know
Which way we go now
A trip to tall the windows
I really don't know now
I really don't know

Static Age-Misfits Cover (2:42)
(from the Half-Life E.P.)

Static (x3)
We're on a video rage
Static (x3)
We're on a video rage
Cuz we're all blue from projection tubes
We're all blue from projection tubes
This is the static age we live in
Our eyes criss-cross, hold and gaze
This is the static age we live in, breathe in
Catch your radiation blue disease and turning, tossing
This is a static age, our very static age
This is a static age
Static (x3)
We're on a video rage
Static (x3)
We're on a video rage
Cuz we're all blue from projection tubes
We're all blue from projection tubes
One, two, three, four

Tame- Pixes Cover(2:02)
(from the Where Is My Mind? Pixies Tribute compilation)

Hips like Cinderella
Must be having a good shame
Talking sweet about nothing
Cookie, I think you're tame
Tame
I'm making good friends with you
When you're shaking your good frame
Fall on your face in those bad shoes
Lying there like you're tame
Tame (x3)
Uh huh (x24) [???]
Tame (x2)
Whoa (x5)
What the fuck?

25 or 6 to 4-Chicago Cover (3:51)
(from the Half-Life E.P.)

Waiting for the break of day
Searching for something to say
A flashing light's across the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
I'm sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4
Feeling like I ought to sleep
A spinning room is sinking deep
A flashing light's across the sky
Giving up I close my eyes
I close my eyes
Should have tried to do some more
25 or 6 to 4
I'm sitting cross-legged on the floor
25 or 6 to 4
Should have tried to do some more
25 or 6 to 4

Pop Life(prince cover) (3:44)
(unreleased demo)

What's the matter with your life?
Is the poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check in someone else's box?
I said it's
Pop life - Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life - We all got a space to fill
Pop life - Everybody can't be on top
life aint very funky unless it's got that pop

What's the matter with your world?
Was it a boy when U wanted a girl?
Straight hair ain't got no curl?
Life ain't very funky unless it's got that pop, that pop,
that Pop life - Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life - We all got a space to fill
Pop life - Everybody can't be on top
Life ain't that funky unless it's got that pop, that pop that pop

yeaahhhhhhhhhhhh

What cha puttin' in your nose?
Is that where all your money goes?
The river of addiction flows
but there won't be no water when the fire blows!!!!!!!!

Pop life - Everybody needs a thrill
Pop life - We all got a space to fill
Pop life - Everybody can't be on top
Life ain't that funky unless it's got that pop, that pop, that pop

Have Yourself A merry Little Christmas (2:33)
(promo single and various compilations)

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on, our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
gather near to us once more.

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star on the highest bough.
And have yourself a merry little Christmas
now

Diane (Material Issue)(2:44)
Muchacha With Scott Lucas on vocals

Diane's got everything, a helicopter and a submarine.
Yeah man you're just what this world needs.
Diane lives in a sanctuary, she swears to Jesus she'll never marry.
Yeah man you're everything to me.

Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane,
Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane,

Diane is everywhere pretending that she just don't care.
Diane I hear you're just nineteen.
Diane's a superstar; she's everything you hoped you were.
Diane you're all these things to me.

Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane,
Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane,

She's got everything she wants in the world
Diane.
Pretending to be some kind of calendar girl
Well I'll pull you out and I'll pin you down
Diane

Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane,
Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane, Diane,
Diane, Diane, Diane
