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

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

Powerman 5000 Action

Ahh… Go!

The sky is falling it’s a curious condition

It ain’t a fallacy, it ain’t superstition

You live your life like you’re some kind of actor

But this scenario you cannot manufacture

We’re gonna need some action

We’re gonna need some action soon

Trapped in a world of ordinary madness

It’s all the same, there’s nothing new

Com’on, com’on

Com’on, com’on

Com’on, com’on

Where’d you learn how to be so complacent?

They beat you down and you might as well face it

Your heroes lied, yeah they’re all just a fake

Don’t know how much more of this I can take

We’re gonna need some action

We’re gonna need some action soon

Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,

It’s all the same, there’s nothing new

We’re gonna need some action (We’re gonna need some action)

We’re gonna need some action soon

Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,

It’s all the same, there’s nothing… New!

Ahh… Go!

We’re gonna need some action (We’re gonna need some action)

We’re gonna need some action soon

Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,

It’s all the same, there’s nothing new

We’re gonna need some action (We’re gonna need some action)

We’re gonna need some action soon

Trapped in a world of ordinary madness,

It’s all the same, there’s nothing new

Com’on, com’on

Com’on, com’on

Com’on, com’on

Com’on, com’on

Action! Action! Action! Action!
