Powerman 5000 20 Miles to Texas, 25 to Hell

20 miles to Texas, 25 to Hell

Where the weather’s hotter I could never tell

Spend most of my days doing nothing but no good

Seems like I was born to be misunderstood

20 miles to Texas!! 25 to Hell!!

20 miles to Texas, 25 to Hell

I was born for stealing I wasn’t made to sell

Carved out of bone and ash, steel, dirt, concrete

An arm for an arm a leg for a leg

One dead end street

20 miles to Texas!! 25 to Hell!! Fire’s on the side of the road people toe to toe

Warm your hands on burning blood

I gotta go… go!!

20 miles to Texas, 25 to Hell

If she ever loved me, I could never tell

Spend most of my days doing nothing but no good

Seems like I was born to be misunderstood

Powerman 5000 A Swim With The Sharks

You get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing

Well a swim with the sharks is like me

I’ll find them for three and catch them and kill them for ten

When they smile just cut off your legs

You’ve got no time to think only to beg

Twenty no twenty five – three tons

The one in the front is the one on the run

Well it’s blood red

Fair game for the eats ’cause this my home this is my street

Well is a swim with the sharks like weak is for strong

Nobody knows it yet not right from wrong

Deep is the dark from the depths of the dive

Am I okay, am I alive?

Well the hot house now seems like suckin’ on some ice cream

Funny thing is it’ll make a grown man scream

Want to stay afloat but don’t forget it

All I’ve got to say you’re gonna need a bigger boat

Well a swim with the sharks is like now

never

deadly

clever

the darkness

the sun…forever…done

Powerman 5000 Assess The Mess

Let’s right now assess the mess

Without finesse

Never forgetting all the rest

There’s too much bad out there

Very nearly everywhere

And too damned few who really care

Assses the mess!!! Indeed, indeed!

Famine, bullshit, corporate greed

Elections stolen like a bird steals seed

Space shots, stations, circling high

Trillions for each and every try

Down here, we simply, daily die

Powerman 5000 A Is For Apathy

I wanna be

The richest American

I wanna live

Out on the street

So many reasons

To just do nothing

To walk around

Like you’re out on your feet

So here we are

Now running in circles

We shoulda listened

To H.G. Wells

We’re living in

The age of frustration

We’re giving in

But we can’t even tell

And all you need

Is one good reason

One good reason

You don’t believe

You want a mapped out

Blank Existance

So you don’t feel stupid

Before you leave

Everybody’s here but nobody showed up

A is for apathy

For apathy

For apathy

A is for apathy

For apathy

For apathy

For apathy

for apathy

For apathy

For apathy

for apathy

For apathy

I wanna be

The richest American

I wanna live

Out on the street

So many reasons

To just do nothing

Don’t walk around

Like your out on your feet

Everybodys here but nobody showed up

Everybodys here but nobody showed up

A is for Apathy

For Apathy

For Apathy

A is for Apathy

For Apathy

For Apathy

Just do nothing

A is for Apathy

For Apathy

For Apathy

A is for Apathy

For Apathy

A is for Apathy

For Apathy

For Apathy

A is for Apathy

For Apathy

For Apathy

(Green says go

Blood red stop

You gotta hit the bottom

Before you hit the top

So make the call

Which side you on

Back with the weak

Go down with the strong)

(Do you understand

Its not too late!)

Powerman 5000 All My Friends Are Ghosts

An apparition in your condition has every right to expect some suspicion

And there’s no gratitude in all this solitude but still you wonder how I got this attitude

Your bloody hands and hollow eyes are just a part of your disguise

Your phantom tricks, they’ll burn out quick but not as fast as you

All my friends are ghosts and go away (go away, go away)

Fade and disappear more with each day (everyday, everyday)

It’s not irrational to get emotional, people love to indulge the sensational

Don’t blame society when you lie to me, might be invisible but you ain’t no piety

Shadow shapes they walk through walls, the phone will ring but there’s no call

Times change but still remain the haunted rules of someone else’s game

All my friends are ghosts and go away (go away, go away)

Fade and disappear more with each day (everyday, everyday)

Just take a look you’ll see right through

There’s nothing more that I can do

All my friends are ghosts

I said, all my friends are ghosts

All my friends are ghosts… and go away

You don’t have to hang around, make a move or make a sound

Lost your identity, transparencys alright by me

All my friends are ghosts and go away (go away, go away)

Fade and disappear more with each day (everyday, everyday)

Just take a look you’ll see right through

There’s nothing more that I can do

All my friends are ghosts

I said, all my friends are ghosts

All my friends are ghosts… and go away
