+never been+
to see your face again to see you once more time to say-
to sympathise your pain you’ve things to speak since gone away
and i am not afraid to say what’s in me time to say-
the price has now been paid now listen closely, it’s time to say-

(chorus) you know, it’s never been easy, to vocalize
you know, it’s never been easy, please let me try
you know, it’s never been easy for me to lie
i never had the chance to let you down i never had the chance to let you down

until that fateful day to cross your path, it’s time to say-
to meet you on the way some thoughts were written, time to say-
to drift you far away to get your hopes up time to say-
to pierce your soul and say- to touch your cheek, it’s time to say-

(chorus) you know, it’s never been easy, to vocalize
you know, it’s never been easy, please let me try
you know, it’s never been easy for me to lie
you know, i’ve got only one regret before i die:

i never had the chance to let you down i never had the chance to let you down
i never had the chance to let you down i never had the chance to let you down

+innocent mistake+
i’ve tried and tried, but what’s the use?
don’t want to take some more abuse
don’t understand why you curse my name
when other people do the same
9 times of 10 they get off scott-free
while the finger’s left pointed at me
what happened to my good example?
godmother, i’m such a handful

(chorus) i’ve tried so hard and succeed, but god help me i make an innocent mistake

left at the table once again
you start the clock and tell me when
i have to finish, or else i lose
when is it my turn to choose?
when other people get their way
it’s natural to say what i say
don’t hold me back the way you do
i’m an individual, too

(chorus) i’ve tried so hard and succeed, but god help me i make an innocent mistake

+i’m a pickle+
i like to chomp on pickles, yes, bob, yes sirree!
i shall drink that juice with the utmost glee
pickles on the bun bring so much closure
to a hoagie or big mac, don’t care if they’re kosher

(chorus): cause’ i’m a pickle

imagine me, a veggie, called a cucumber
growin’ in the field until my days are numbered
mr. farmer joe puts me on his truck
little do i know, i’m in so much luck

(chorus): cause’ i’m a pickle

cause i get to be a pickle for somebody to eat
i don’t really mind if i’m dill or if i’m sweet
if someone’s never had one, i’d encourage them to try it
because it would be a shame to exclude them from your diet

(chorus): cause’ i’m a pickle

+loki kitty, loke boke loki keykey+
loki- i had a cat named loki called him, called him names like “loki-boki, hokey-pokey”
he was black and had a diamond-shape right about at his nape
he got old and had a stroke euthanasia helped him croak

loki kitty kitty, loke boke, loki keykey…

+in jest+
it’s easy to do your laundry now when everything is black somehow
it’s easy to budget your paydays when all you need’s cloves and hairsprays
let’s be different, like the rest- emphasize it, do your best
i’m not trying to piss you off, there’s just a reason why the public scoffs

if you heard just what i said, realize i’m not innocent
wouldn’t speak this heresey if some weren’t a part of me
just please admit it’s just a style. would you dress like this on a desert isle?
i’m not trying to piss you off, there’s just a reason why the public scoffs

(chorus): this is in jest

but who am i to judge your taste as you hear these words with a straight face
obviously, there’s something right. maybe there’s some hope in sight
kick the drama, it’s just a game. do some good in your own name
i’m not trying to piss you off, i’m just saying i’ve earned the right to scoff

(chorus): this is in jest

+makes wiff’ da’ stinky+
makes wiff da’ stinky one more time
it’s super dooper and sublime
i’m in tha’ hizzy makin’ da’ smell
i’m cookin’ ramen in a turtle shell

(chorus) ooooohhhh…… makes wiff da’ stinky

makes wiff da’ stinky oh, so fine
it’s happy-happy every time
my hizzy-hizzy makin’ tha’ juice
i’m in the engine lookin’ at the caboose

(chorus) ooooohhhh…… makes wiff da’ stinky

(bridge) makin’ wiff da’ stinky it makin’ oh, so good
makin’ wiff da’ stinky in my neighborhood
makin’ wiff da’ stinky when i get in my bed
makin’ wiff da’ stinky pullin’ the covers over your head

+the devil’s own+
It’s way beyond that kiss for my dream
Time has passed and uncovered things
I gave my all, now I let it go
I’ve had the feeling, but I don’t know

(chorus) I feel the breath of the devil’s own
and bear emotions I can’t make known
Can’t say I’m sorry for who I am
I’m to the point where I don’t give a damn

I’ve given into new things, I have
Felt self-indulgence’s firm grab
Never thought this is what I’d become
Just want to know where you’re coming from
This is the way that I recognize
It’s only natural to sympathize
When can we come to a compromise?
Can’t handle something of this size

(chorus) I feel the kiss of the devil’s own
and bear emotions I can’t make known
Please don’t forgive me of who I am
Something must break, and I don’t give a damn
Don’t want this memory, make it stop
I understand now why Pete won’t talk
You take advantage, I’m just a pawn
After our holliday, I’ll be gone

+disrespectful+
i told you in strict confidence about a matter dear
i told you with the mad assumption that maybe you would hear
i told you from the years of friendship, i didn’t expect this attack
saying that you regret nothing doesn’t change the fact

(chorus) how could you be so disrespectful? all things come to an end
why did you break this bond of trust?
how could you be so disrespectful? farewell, my old friend

the camel’s back has now been broken, of that i attest
i hope you think that it was worth it, this premeditated mess
i really hope you think it’s worth it, just to get some sex

(chorus) how could you be so disrespectful? all things come to an end
why did you break this bond of trust?
how could you be so disrespectful? farewell, my old friend

+warthog+
deep in the cockpit, the government’s plan
desicration of the sons of man
deep within “The Sandbox,” third sortee today…
the back of my mind knows we’re carried away
ground zero’s located 10 miles from town
this country’s leaders are nowhere around
local women, children see shadows of payload
but they’ve no time to run before it starts to explode

(chorus) “warthog loads up
warthog leaves ground
warthog drops bombs
then turns around
warthog comes back
with hot lead rain
warthog brings fire
warthog brings pain”

my religion teaches I should feel some remorse
but I’ve learned different emotion from an alternate source
“this mission’s accomplished,” I relay back to base
contradicting tears follow lines on my face
liberty and justice don’t come cheap for the West
I’m earning you the freedom and the right to protest
who buries the pallbearers? they’re in kingdom come
these scars remain to haunt me long after I come home

“warthog loads up
warthog leaves ground
warthog drops bombs
then turns around
warthog comes back
with hot lead rain
warthog brings fire
warthog brings pain”
