Mother Mother The Drugs

Cause you’re hotter than the sun

And you’re better than the drugs

I used to love

I would lose my decadence

I’d do away with all the dirtiness

For your love

I would become innocent

I’d listen to everything mamma said

For your love

Cause you’re hotter than the sun

And you’re better than the drugs

I used to love

And you’re deadly like a gun

Yeah you’re deadly like the drugs

Oh the drugs, I used to love

Send me down an angel

And let it pull me up from my own hell

We could float around this place

We’d be above all of the pain in ecstasy

Cause you’re hotter than the sun

And you’re better than the drugs

I used to love

And you’re deadly like a gun

Yeah you’re deadly like the drugs

Oh the drugs, I used to love

Give my best to the mess

I’ve had my fill of it

And give my worst to the curse

I’ve had my fill of it

And give my blessing to depression

I’ve had enough of it

Had e- had e-

Had enough of it

Cause you’re hotter than the sun

And you’re better than the drugs

I used to love

And you’re deadly like a gun

Yeah you’re deadly like the drugs

Oh the drugs, oh the drugs

I used to love

Mother Mother Omen

Something about the world today makes a boy feel a bit insane

From daffodils to acid rain to antichrist on a tidal wave

But that’s all right, that’s okay, I can look the other way

Upon a path of old primrose, beyond the smoke and smoldering chrome

And the Pentagon and the fall of Rome

There lies a place I might call home

With a couple of sticks and a couple of stones

I’ll dig a pit and lay my bones

Mother Mother Oleander

You stood beside me when I was out of my mind

I broke the glass, and you were there to sweep it aside

And if you leave me, rest assured it would kill me

I make a mess and you’ll be there to help me undress

I’ll be unclean, I’ll be obscene, you’ll be the rest

And if you leave me, rest assured it would kill me

Like an oleander

Light white leaves, of an oleander

White like me

I’m like a child in a sty

I play with fire

I burn you right out, I burned your bible

You tried to cry, could only smile

And if you leave me rest assured it would kill me

Rest assured if you leave

Like an oleander

Light white leaves, of an oleander

White like me

Oh the oleander

White white leaves of an oleander

White like me

Mother Mother Let’s Fall In Love

There’s a game in the world, a little bit of cat and mouse

With the boys and the girls, and if I had to ante up

I’d bet on the birds, ’cause they don’t have to get caught up

With the boys and the girls and a little game of cat and mouse

Mommy did it, daddy did it

The funny little monkeys in the zoo will do it

The stupid does it, the ugly do it

Only the unlucky of us get to do it

Let’s fall in love, let’s fall in love.

There’s a game in the world, a little bit of cat and mouse

With the boys and the girls, and if I had to ante up

I’d bet on the birds, ’cause they don’t have to walk around

With the boys and the girls and a little bit of cat and mouse

Mommy did it, daddy did it

Even though I bet they wish they really didn’t

Mary did it, Joey did it

Even little baby baby Jesus did it

Yuppies do it, junkies do it

The funny little monkeys in the zoo will do it

The stupid does it, the foolish do it

Only the unlucky of us get to do it

Let’s fall in love.

Let’s fall in love.

Mommy did it, daddy did it

The funny little monkeys in the zoo will do it

The stupid does it, the ugly do it

Only the unlucky of us get to do it.

Mother Mother Neighbour

I am your neighbor I can see you

I got these blinds that I peek through

And when you’re crying

I see your tears fall down

They’re making oceans

That in I

Sink and drown

I feel I know you

I feel I know you well

I’ve seen you go through

I’ve seen you go through hell

I was there when you

First let euphoria

Spill on your bed sheets

I could feel

What you felt

Do you feel used?

Well I would too, I would too

And would you use me

Like I did you?

Oh you would too

I am your neighbor

I can hear you

I got this tin can

With a string through

And when you’re crying

I hear your shaky breath

And when you’re lying

I hear your heart confess

Time’s slipping away

Cuz I see your moving signs everyday

You got your things in your boxes

Your oven’s always cold

You’ll leave me all alone with just an

Empty peep hole

Do you feel used?

Well I would too, I would too

And would you use me

Like I did you?

Oh you would too

Mother Mother Wrecking Ball

I made a wreck out of my hand

I put it through the wall

I made a fist and not a plan

Call me a reckless wrecking ball

I throw my plates against the wall

And give it all I got

I aim to break not one but all

I’m just a big ol’ wrecking ball

I am unruly in the stands

I am a rock on top of the sand

I am a fist amidst the hands

And I break it

Just because I can

It takes a dedicated hand

To put it through the wall

You gotta wanna break the heart

Of all those pretty porcelain dolls

You gotta want to be the drummer in the band

You gotta want to be a battering ram

You gotta see the artistry

In tearing the place apart with me baby

I am unruly in the stands

I am a rock on top of the sand

I am a fist amidst the hands

And I break it

Just because I can

Let’s break it

(just because we can)

Deface it

(just because we can)

Let’s break it

just because

just because

just because

just because

I am unruly in the stands

(I am a rock on top of the sand)

I am a fist amidst the hands

And I make a wreck out of my hand

I make a fist and not a plan

And I break it

just because I can

because I can

because I can

because I can

because I can

because I can

because I can

because I can

because I can

Mother Mother Dread In My Heart

There’s a God-awful shitty feeling of dread in my heart,

Yeah, it’s got a lot to do with haven’t finished what I started;

And at any second now I think it all might fall apart,

‘Cause there’s a God-awful shitty feeling of dread in my heart, yeah.

There’s a devil in my brain with a pitchfork and a flame,

Yeah, he likes to poke around and he likes to tell me things

And whenever I begin to feel like I might be deranged

I remember there’s a little shitty devil in my brain, yeah.

Oh, I wonder what it’s like to

Be the type who doesn’t burn,

Yeah the kind who fights the good fight

Not the kind you find

Fisti-fucking-cuffing in the dirt.

There’s a God-awful shitty feeling of dread in my heart

And I can’t seem to change my attitude but I can change my shirt,

‘Cause you know, I actually at times I can be a good start,

But not today,

There’s still a God-awful shitty feeling of dread in my heart.

Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah,

In my heart,

Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah,

Oh, yeah,

Who-who-who-who

Oh, no,

Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah.

Mother Mother Original Spin

It’s just the world

That’s all it is

Toppling through outer space on a trip

It’s just the world

Big and round, now isn’t it

Some kind of tropical fish

In a tropical storm

We take a blade in the rib cage

Or some ice age

And we twist until it’s warm

You know it’s just the world (It was only one)

Trying to be something with an original spin

An unoriginal sin (I’ve sinned before)

Just with a bottle of Gin oh no

And the girl next door

I think it’s spinnin’ for mine

You think it’s spinnin’ for yours

It’s spinnin’ for sure

But if it’s spinnin’ for neither

Then really can either

Of us be sure

Just what it’s spinnin’ for

Oh yeah it’s just the world

Trying to be somethin’

Another byzantine, a palestinian

But with original spin (my friend)

And an original sin (oh look I’m sinning again)

Another bottle of Gin (Aha)

And my baby cakes

I think it’s spinnin’ for mine

You think it’s spinnin’ for yours

It’s spinnin’ for sure

But if it’s spinnin’ for neither

Than really can either

Of us be sure

Just what it’s spinnin’ for

Oh yeah it’s just the world

(oh yeah)

A little place in outer space on a trip

It’s just the world

Were your swim in the sand

Makin’ a bed

Playin’ in it

Never to stop and think

It might be spinnin’ for providence

Really it ain’t

No really it ain’t

I know it’s nice to say

I think it’s spinnin’ for mine

You think it’s spinnin’ for yours

It’s spinnin’ for sure

I think its spinnin’ for fun fun fun fun fun

It must be fun to make old mother earth shake

It’s just the world [x4]

Mother Mother Tic Toc

All this talk, all this ticking, all this shit talk

I’m staying in bed today

And it doesn’t matter what they’ll have to say to me

No I do not care just what they’ll have to say to me

Cuz I am not listening

Tick Tock Tick Tock Ticky Ticky Tock Ticky Ticky Toc

Goes the clock and I sit and I watch the hours go

Lying on my back I watch this big world float

And I do not care just what they’ll have to say to me

Cuz I am not listening to you

Big hand, little hand, no hand, slow hand

Sitting in my hand is the sand of a shattered hour glass

And I throw these grains of sand into the wind and laugh

And I do not care just what they’ll have to say about that

Cuz the sand man told me, there’s no use in listening

I am not listening to you

Mother Mother All Gone

I take a hammer and I break my legs

I break them for the better

The two of them are always walking me

Into the stormy weather

I got the government to change my name, yeah

Change it all together

The silly thing it never had a ring

As though it skipped a letter, letter, letter

Now that you’re all gone (all gone, all gone)

(I bet you don’t feel lighter)

Well no I don’t feel lighter

‘Cos I’m all gone (all gone, all done)

So there’s a little left over

Yeah there’s a lot left over, though I’m all gone (hooo-hoo-hoo)

I take a pistol and I blow my brain

I blow it out the window

The little thing was always acting strange

And thinking like a devil

I’m getting close to reinventing me, yeah

Zeroing my levels

I get the feeling that it will not be

At all or any better, better, better

Now that you’re all gone (all gone, all gone)

(I bet you don’t feel lighter)

Well no I don’t feel lighter

‘Cos I did it wrong, did it wrong, did it wrong

So there’s a little left over

Yeah there’s a lot left over,

Though I’m all gone, (all gone), all gone, (all gone)

Oooooooooh

I gotta get away

From myself

I gotta get help

Oooooooooh

I take a hammer, yeah

I take a little pistol, yeah

I got the government,

I got old Prime Minister

I build a bomb, yeah a big old bomb

And I put it on a tether

Spin it around ’til the bomb goes off

And now I’m floating in the ever, ever, after

Now that you’re all gone (all gone, all gone)

(I bet you don’t feel lighter)

Well no I don’t feel lighter

‘Cos I did it wrong, did it wrong, did it wrong

So there’s a little left over

Yeah there’s a lot left over,

Though I’m all gone, (all gone), all gone, (all gone)
