1. Suicide's An Alternative / You'll Be Sorry (2:44)
Sick of people! No one’s real!
Sick of chicks! They’re all bitches!
Sick of you! You’re too hip!
Sick of life! It sucks!

Suicide’s an alternative!

Sick of trying! What’s the point?!
Sick of talking! No one listens!
Sick of listening! It’s all lies!
Sick of thinking! Just end up confused!
Sick of moving! Never get nowhere!
Sick of myself! Don’t wanna live!
Sick and tired! And no one cares!
Sick of life! It sucks!

Sick of politics! For the rich!
Sick of power! Only oppresses!
Sick of government! Full of tyrants!
Sick of school! Total brainwash!
Sick of music! Top 40 sucks!
Sick of myself! Don’t wanna live!
Sick and tired! And no one cares!
Sick of life! It sucks!

Suicide’s an alternative!

Sick of life! It sucks!
Sick and tired! And no one cares!
Sick of myself! Don’t wanna live!
Sick of living! I’m gonna die!

Suicide’s an alternative!

Well, I’ve got a little story to tell
About a man, said he came from hell
He said Satan’s been lookin’ especially after me
He said Satan’s got a paper, gonna set my body free
He said power and glory, rich is the story
All in your name and all for you today
Oh yeah!

Power in your name, glory and fame
All the gold and riches you ever could have
Oh yeah!

He said power, fame, all in your name
All that you wanted, all that you need
All that you want to answer your dream
Anything that you ever could need

Sign the paper, that’s all you do
Sign the paper, it’s ready to you
Anything there, it’s all for you
Just sign the paper!

Oh! Let me see if I got this right!
Then I sign the paper and I get all these things
It’s gotta be something else to happen
I don’t know, man, besides, it’s like...coward

Well I don’t care too much about gold
And I don’t really give a fuck about what you’ve been told
And I don’t really care for anyone looking after me
Besides, I’m a meaner son of a bitch than that fuck ever could be
2. Two Sided Politics (1:03)
I’m not anti-society, society’s anti-me
I’m not anti-religion, religion is anti-me
I’m not anti-tradition, tradition is anti-me
I’m not anti-anything, I just wanna be free

Fascist state, no freedom
Unless you control yourself
Use self-expression, lose your freedom
You’re undesirable, you go straight to jail

Two sided politics
One for them, another for me!

Kill someone in a war
Get a medal, you’re a hero
Protect yourself in every day war
You’re undesirable you go straight to jail

Two sided politics
One for them, another for me!

I’m not anti-Reagan, Reagan’s anti-me
I’m not anti-government, government’s anti-me
I’m not anti-politics, politics is anti-me
I’m not anti-anything, I just wanna be free

Innocent, never guilty
High class lawyer, you are rich
If you’re poor must be guilty
Even if innocent you go straight to jail

Two sided politics!
3. I Shot Reagan (1:51)
I shot Reagan!

I shot Reagan, I shot Sadat
I’m gonna shoot you dead in heaven you’ll rot
You’re gonna rot in heaven, hear an angel’s voice
You’re too bad for hell, although it’s your first choice

Rot in heaven
You’re too bad for hell
Rot in heaven
‘Cause you’re forgiven in hell

I shot Lennon, I shot the Pope
I shot the devil, now you ain’t got no hope
You’re gonna rot in heaven, hear an angel’s voice
You’re too bad for hell, although it’s your first choice

Rot in heaven
You’re too bad for hell
Rot in heaven
‘Cause you’re forgiven in hell

Rot in heaven
You’re too bad for hell
Rot in heaven
‘Cause you’re forgiven in hell

I shot Reagan, I shot Sadat
I’m gonna shoot you dead in heaven you’ll rot
I shot Lennon, I shot the Pope
I shot the devil, now you ain’t got no hope

I shot Reagan!
And I’ll do it again and again and again!
4. Subliminal (3:08)
Flashing pictures on my screen
Shown too quickly to be seen
Does not register in my conscious mind
Propaganda of another kind

They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally

Flashing pictures on my screen
Shown too quickly to be seen
Does not register in my conscious mind
Propaganda of another kind

Danger! Nightmare! Doomsday! Nightmare!
Murder! Nightmare! Nightmare! Nightmare!

Danger! Nightmare! Doomsday! Nightmare!
Murder! Nightmare! Nightmare! Nightmare!

They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally

Watching TV I start to cry
For no reason I don’t know why
Could it be from messages on my TV
Which I’m getting subliminally?

They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally

Flashing pictures on my screen
Shown too quickly to be seen
Does not register in my conscious mind
Propaganda of another kind

Danger! Nightmare! Doomsday! Nightmare!
Murder! Nightmare! Nightmare! Nightmare!

Danger! Nightmare! Doomsday! Nightmare!
Murder! Nightmare! Nightmare! Nightmare!

They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally

Mind control, the easiest way
Sponsored by the C.I.A.
It’s a weapon you cannot see
It’s propaganda subliminally

They’re fucking with me subliminally
They’re fucking with me subliminally
5. Won't Fall In Love Today (0:59)
Baby, don’t you be blue
You know that I’ll always be true
You know that I’ll always love you
And we’ll always be together too

Over a thousand things I can say to you, half of which would be un-true
But the one thing for sure I can say is that I won’t fall in love today

Baby, when you hold me tight
You know everything will be alright
So let’s not take any time to fight
Because you know I love you with all my might

Over a thousand things I can say to you, half of which would be un-true
But the one thing for sure I can say is that I won’t fall in love today

Baby, you make me feel like a man
When we’re rolling in the sand
So come and take me by the hand
And do the things you know we can

Over a thousand things I can say to you, half of which would be un-true
But the one thing for sure I can say is that I won’t fall in love today
6. Institutionalized (3:50)
Sometimes I try to do things and it just doesn’t work out the way I wanted to
I get real frustrated and I try hard to do it and I take my time and it doesn’t work out the way I wanted to
It’s like I concentrate real hard and it doesn’t work out, everything I do and everything I try, it never turns out
It’s like I need time to figure these things out but there’s always someone there going

Hey Mike:
“You know we’ve been noticing you’ve been having a lot of problems lately, you know!”
“Maybe you should get away and, like, maybe you should talk about it, you’ll feel a lot better!”

And I go:
“No, it’s okay, you know! I’ll figure it out!”
“Just leave me alone! I’ll figure it out!”
“You know I’ll just work by myself!”

And they go:
“Well, you know, if you want to talk about it”
“I’ll be here, you know, and you’ll probably feel a lot better if you talk about it!”
“So why don’t you talk about it?”

And I go:
“No, I don’t want to, I’m okay!”
“I’ll figure it out myself!”
And they just keep bugging me
And they just keep bugging me
And it builds up inside and it builds up inside

So you’re gonna be institutionalized
You’ll come out brainwashed with bloodshot eyes
You won’t have any say
They’ll brainwash you until you see their way

I’m not crazy (in an institution!)
You’re the one who’s crazy (in an institution!)
You’re driving me crazy (in an institution!)

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything
But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in and I didn’t even know she was there she called my name
And I didn’t even hear it and then she started screaming: “Mike! Mike!”

And I go:
“What? What’s the matter?”

And she goes:
“What’s the matter with you?”

I go:
“There’s nothing wrong, mom!”

And she goes:
“Don’t tell me that!”
“You’re on drugs!”

And I go:
“No, mom! I’m not on drugs! I’m okay!”
“I was just thinking you know”
“Why don’t you get me a Pepsi?”

And she goes:
“No! You’re on drugs!”

I go:
“Mom, I’m okay! I’m just thinking!”

She goes:
“No! You’re not thinking! You’re on drugs!”
“Normal people don’t act that way!”

I go:
“Mom, just give me a Pepsi, please!”
All I want is a Pepsi and she wouldn’t give it to me
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi
And she wouldn’t give it to me
Just a Pepsi!

They give you a white shirt with long sleeves
Tied around your back, you’re treated like thieves
Drug you up because they’re lazy
It’s too much work to help a crazy

I’m not crazy (in an institution!)
You’re the one who’s crazy (in an institution!)
You’re driving me crazy (in an institution!)

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

I was sitting in my room and my mom and my dad came in
They pulled up a chair and they sat down

They go:
“Mike, we need to talk to you!”

And I go:
“Okay! What’s the matter?!”

They go:
“Me and your mom have been noticing lately that you’ve been having a lot of problems”
“You’ve been going off for no reason and we’re afraid you’re gonna hurt somebody”
“We’re afraid you’re gonna hurt yourself”
“So we decided that it would be in your best interest if we put you somewhere”
“Where you could get the help that you need”

And I go:
“Wait! What do you mean?
“What are you talking about! We decided?!”
“My best interest?!”
“How can you know what’s my best interest is?”
“How can you say what my best interest is?
“What are you trying to say? I’m crazy?”
“When I went to your schools”
“I went to your churches”
“I went to your institutional learning facilities?!”
“So how can you say I’m crazy?!”

They say they’re gonna fix my brain
Alleviate my suffering and my pain
But by the time they fix my head
Mentally I’ll be dead

I’m not crazy (in an institution!)
You’re the one who’s crazy (in an institution!)
You’re driving me crazy (in an institution!)

They stuck me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself

It doesn’t matter
I’ll probably get hit by a car anyway
7. Memories of Tomorrow (0:59)
B-1 bombers in flight
Trident missiles in the air
MX missiles underground
Protect us till we’re dead

Memories of tomorrow
Crying sorrow

Push the button
Kiss good-bye the nuclear arsenal
A-bombs flying off their ramps
Nuclear bombs explode

Radioactive people
Search for medicine
Pray for shelter
Kill for food

Memories of tomorrow
Crying sorrow

Mass starvation
Contaminated water
Destroyed cities
Mutilated bodies

Memories of tomorrow
Crying sorrow

I’ll kill myself
I’d rather die
If you could see in the future
You’d know why

Memories of tomorrow!
8. Possessed (2:07)
When I go down the street
The people watch me shiver and shake
I’m a prisoner of a demon
I think my head’s about to break
It stays with me wherever I go
I can’t break away from its hold
This must be my punishment
For selling my soul

Too much pressure, my pulse is rising
My heart is pounding, my head really hurts
I can’t take it, all this pressure
From all these things inside of me
Everywhere I look I see them
Everywhere I go they’re at
What did I do to deserve this?
Why won’t they just leave my body?

Are they people or are they spirits?
Do they belong to the human race?
Why do they want me so bad?
Why won’t they come out of their hiding place?
I can’t see them, but I know they’re here
I can feel it in my veins
All this pressure on my body
Is causing all my strength to drain

Too much pressure, my pulse is rising
My heart is pounding, my head really hurts
I can’t take it, all this pressure
From all these things inside of me
Everywhere I look I see them
Everywhere I go they’re at
What did I do to deserve this?
Why won’t they just leave my body?

Am I crazy, or am I insane?
Or have I already lost my mind?
Is it real, or is it fake?
Or am I in a permanent bind?
Am I in power or am I a slave?
Who in hell is in control?
Am I still living, or am I dead?
Do I still have a soul?

Too much pressure, my pulse is rising
My heart is pounding, my head really hurts
I can’t take it, all this pressure
From all these things inside of me
Everywhere I look I see them
Everywhere I go they’re at
What did I do to deserve this?
Why won’t they just leave my body?

I know I can’t keep going this way
I have to give my mind some leisure
If I keep on going like this
I never again will taste pleasure
If they will not break the oath
I will have to disband
I have lost all control
This thing has now taken command

Possessed
Possessed
Possessed
Possessed

Possessed!
9. I Saw Your Mommy.... (4:52)
Yesterday, as I went out of the house
I saw a body lying down quiet as a mouse
Lying face down in the sewer
I got up closer and realized that I knew her

All her organs coming from her inside
Slashed up skin, sliced up hide
Turned her over and saw the tire tracks on her head
That’s when I realized she was dead

I saw your mommy and your mommy’s dead
I saw your mommy and your mommy’s dead

Twisted body, chopped off feet
Her body was minced meat
Bugs crawling on her arms
She’s dead, can’t do no harm
Gnarled up legs, broken and bent
Her last breath has been spent

I wonder how much you had to pay
To get your mom killed in such a bloody way

I saw your mommy and your mommy’s dead
I watched her as she bled
Chewed off toes on her chopped off feet
I took a picture ‘cause I thought it was neat

But the thing I like seeing the best
Was the rodents using her hair as a nest
I saw your mommy and your mommy’s dead
I saw your mommy and your mommy’s dead

Twisted body, chopped off feet
Her body was minced meat
Bugs crawling on her arms
She’s dead, can’t do no harm
Gnarled up legs, broken and bent
Her last breath has been spent

I know it is your allowance that you’ll really miss
But make it look good at her funeral and give her little kiss

I saw your mommy and your mommy’s dead
I saw her lying in a pool of red
I think it’s the greatest thing I’ll ever see
Your dead mommy lying in front of me

I’ll always remember her lying dead on the floor
I hope she dies twenty times more
I saw your mommy and your mommy is dead
I saw your mommy and your mommy is dead

Twisted body, chopped off feet
Her body was minced meat
Bugs crawling on her arms
She’s dead, can’t do no harm
Gnarled up legs, broken and bent
Her last breath has been spent

I wonder how much you had to pay
To get your mom killed in such a bloody way
10. Fascist Pig (1:17)
Tense atmosphere in the air
Riot written everywhere
Riot squads coming from over there
Time to go home if you’re square

Riot squad, bash their heads
Kick their ass until they’re dead

I want to be a fascist pig
Love to fight, what a thrill
We don’t stop until we kill
I want to be a fascist pig

Throw a bottle in the air
Put them up to their dare
We’ll just laugh while they stare
Let them hit us, see if we care!

Riot squad, bash their heads
Kick their ass until they’re dead

I want to be a fascist pig
Love to fight, what a thrill
We don’t stop until we kill
I want to be a fascist pig

Get attacked by them
You’ll never heal
They’ll rob your conscience
Your sanity they’ll steal
They’ll beat your brains until they spill
That’s the fascist favorite meal!

Riot squad, bash their heads
Kick their ass until they’re dead

I want to be a fascist pig
Love to fight, what a thrill
We don’t stop until we kill
I want to be a fascist pig

I want to be a fascist pig!
11. I Want More (2:28)
In times of trouble I fall to my knees and I look to the sky
‘Cause me, me, I want more
The classification of our heart’s a sin
‘Cause me, me, I want more

Don’t wanna pump nobody’s gas
I want more!
Don’t wanna kiss my boss’ ass
I want more!
Don’t wanna take the first job I find
I want more!
Don’t wanna dig coal out of a mine
I want more!

Slaving in a factory
A different kind of insanity
Feels like I’m locked in a cage
Working like a maniac
Gave myself a heart attack
For a job that pays minimum wage

I want more!
Don’t wanna work at the Golden Arches
I want more!
Don’t wanna wash no rich man’s cars
I want more!
Don’t wanna be nobody’s gardener
I want more!
Don’t wanna be a garbage man
I want more!

Slaving in a factory
A different kind of insanity
Feels like I’m locked in a cage
Working like a maniac
Gave myself a heart attack
For a job that pays minimum wage

I sit and reflect about all that I’ve learned and all that I’ve seen
‘Cause me, me, I want more
The memories come and they go away
‘Cause me, me, I want more

Don’t wanna pump nobody’s gas
I want more!
Don’t wanna kiss my boss’ ass
I want more!
Don’t wanna take the first job I find
I want more!
Me!
I want more!
12. Suicidal Failure (2:55)
Father, forgive me for I know not what I do
I tried everything, but I’ll leave it up to you
I don’t want to live, I don’t know why
I don’t have no reasons, I just want to die

I’m a suicidal failure
I’ve got to get some help
I have suicidal tendencies
But I can’t kill myself

I’m tired of this way of life, my patience has expired
I’m barely just 19, but my life I will retire
I went down to a rifle store, I bought myself a gun
I pointed it at my head, but I couldn’t get the job done

I’m a suicidal failure
I’ve got to get some help
I have suicidal tendencies
But I can’t kill myself

I took all my mother’s sleeping pills, I jumped off a freeway bridge
I drank three kinds of poison and drove my car off a ridge
I beat myself with a bat, put a noose around my head
I overdosed on heroin but I’m still not dead

I’m a suicidal failure
I’ve got to get some help
I have suicidal tendencies
But I can’t kill myself

Death may not be the answer, it can’t be all that great
But me I’m not into living, with life I can’t relate
By some masochistic reasoning, I think that it will be fun
I want to start my second life now so shoot me with your gun

I’m looking forward
Suicidal!
I’m really bored
Suicidal!
You wanna die
Suicidal!
Then die
Suicidal!

Honestly
Suicidal!
At the game
Suicidal!
At the beach
Suicidal!
At my school
Suicidal!
