Track Name: Sgt. Psyclopps
I'm Sgt. Psyclopps, standing here today
I'm Sgt. Psyclopps, gonna blow someone away
I'm Sgt. Psyclopps, I shoot 'em with my gun
I'm Sgt. Psyclopps, I shoot 'em just for fun

The army didn't want me
They said they didn't want their soldiers to be chickens
They said I didn't qualify
Why? 'Cuz I only got one eye
I'm gonna tell you something that you gotta understand
A chicken can kill as well as any man can

I'm Sgt. Psyclopps, firing weapons, I know how
I'm gonna start a war with Col. Sanders now
I'm Sgt. Psyclopps, people you must decide
Do what I say or you'll be Kentucky fried
Track Name: Poultry Uprising
I call out to all the chickens across the land
It's time for us to rise up and take a stand
Birds of a feather got to stick together
Unite to fight for rights that we deserve
A revolution's what we need if we wanna be freed
The cry of the chicken must be heard
It's a poultry uprising, it's a poultry uprising

They pluck out our feathers and they decapitate us
Getting cooked up in a pan is the fate that does await us
For all these crimes against chicken-kind, they will have to pay
And with human blood spilling from our beaks, we will say
It's a poultry uprising, it's a poultry uprising
Track Name: It's A Beautiful Day For A Natural Disaster
t's a beautiful day for a natural disaster
We gotta die sometime, might as well happen faster
The grass is green and the sky is clear blue
And California's big one is long overdue

Watch the city crumble to pile of rubble
Hold on to your life as you shake in the earthquake
The buildings collapse and freeway overpass
crashes down from the eruption underground

Earthquakes ain't all bad, they keep seismologists
on the payroll and make pretty pictures on the Richter scale
As California breaks off and drifts into the sea
Your home becomes beach front property

You can't avoid natural disasters anywhere you go
From tornadoes to volcanoes, or an avalanche of snow
Another civilization swept away...just like Pompeii
Track Name: The Man Without Nostrils
On the night he was born
They saw that he was deformed
The doctor said he'd be better off dead
But his mother replied
He'll be all right without a couple of holes in his head

He'll be a man without nostrils
But he'll turn out just fine
He can breathe through his mouth
And he'll have a good life
He'll be a man without nostrils
A regular guy except he doesn’t have a nose

Off he went to school but he couldn't fit in
He was taunted and tormented by the other kids
As he was walking home one afternoon
They jumped him and they slugged him till he was black and blue

He's that kid without nostrils, let's make him cry
He can bleed through his mouth and we'll have a good time
He's the kid without nostrils
What a weird looking guy
He can’t even pick his nose

He couldn’t live a normal life with an abnormal face
So he decided to run away
He got joined up with the traveling side show
'Cuz when you got no nose who knows where you can go?

Come see the man without nostrils, you won't believe your eyes
Pay one thin dime and have a good time
He's the man without nostrils, an astounding sight
See the man without a nose

Well, the 1970s came to pay
And they put his face on shirts that said "Have A Nice Day"
But then he fell ill and he died in bed
And on the next day his obituary read

He was a man without nostrils
But he turned out just fine
He could breathe through his mouth
And he had a good life
A man without nostrils
a regular guy but he didn’t have a...
Track Name: Blood Puddle
The blood is dripping from the sky
The blood is dripping from your eye
After you die, your body warps
I just laugh at your bloody corpse
Your life was muddled
Slip in the blood puddle

Death by mutilation
Initiate decapitation
Down plops your severed head
While you soak in a pool of red
You can't avoid it but you struggle
Slip in the blood puddle

Rotting carcass, fractured skull
Sliced flesh, killing out of control
Breaking bones and ripping skin
All this death makes me grin
Buried under dirt with a shovel
Slip in the blood puddle
Track Name: La Revancha de la Cucaracha
Been on this earth for millions of years longer
Weak attempts to crush 'em just make em stronger
They'll still be here after we're gone
Wipe ourselves out with the nuclear bombs
Lights out everybody, scavenge for scraps
But poisonous toxins are making 'em gasp
Been damaged by Black Flag and Raid
But the time has come for you to face

¡La revancha de la cucaracha!

Squeezing through the cracks under the wall
Striking wherever six legs can crawl
Climbing up the drain into the sink
Surviving on insect instinct
Contaminating your food, give you dysentery
Send you straight to the cemetery
La cucaracha kills people dead
2000 eyes in its head

¡La revancha de la cucaracha!

See what it feels like when it’s you
Crunched under a big ole boot
In an exoskeletal pile
Oozing with burning bile
Track Name: Institutionalized
Sometimes I try to do things, an' just doesn't work out the
way I want it to, an' I get real frustrated. An' like, I try
hard to do it, and I like take my time but it just doesn't work
out the way I want it to. It's like I concentrate on it real
hard, but it just doesn't work out. An' everything I do an'
everything I try, it never turns out, it's like I need time
to figure these things out. Simon an' Theodore are always there,
goin' "Hey Alvin, you know, we've been noticing you've been
having a lot of problems lately, you know? You should maybe get
away. An' like, maybe you should talk about it. You'll feel a
lot better." An' I go "No, it's ok, you know? I'll figure it out.
Just leave me alone, I'll figure it out, you know? I'll just work
it out myself." They go, "Well you know, if you wanna talk about
it, I'll be here you know? An' you'll probably feel a lot better
if you talked about, so why don't you talk about it?" I go, "No,
I don't want to. I'm ok. I'll figure it out myself." But they
just keep buggin' me, an' they just keep buggin' me, and it builds
up inside.

So you're gonna be institutionalized,
you'll come out brainwashed with bloodshot eyes.
You want have any say.
They'll brainwash you until you see their way.
I'm not crazy! Institution!
You're the one whose crazy! Institution!
You're drivin' me crazy! Institution!
They stick me in an institution.
Said it was the only solution.
To give me the needed professional help.
Protect me from the enemy, myself!

I was in my room, an' was just like staring at the wall thinking
about everything but then again I was thinking about nothing. An'
then Dave came in, an' I didn't even know he was there. He called
my name and I didn't hear an' then he started screamin', "Alvin!"
An' I go, "What, what's the matter?" He goes, "What's the matter
with you?" I go, "There's nothin' wrong, Dave." He goes, "Don't
tell me that! You're on acorns!" I go, "No Dave, I'm not on acorns.
I'm ok. I'm just thinking, you know? Why can't I play my harmonica?"
He goes, "No! You're on acorns!" I go, "Dave, I'm ok. I'm just
thinking. An' he goes, "No! You're not thinking, you're on acorns!
Normal chipmunks don't act in that way!" I go, "Dave, just lemme
play my harmonica, please? All I want's my harmonica" An' he wouldn't
let me. Just a harmonica. An' he wouldn't let me play it. Just a
harmonica.

They give you a white shirt with long sleeves,
tied around your back, you're treated like theives.
Drug you up because they're lazy.
It's too much work to help a crazy.
I'm not crazy! Institution!
You're the one whose crazy! Institution!
You're drivin' me crazy! Institution!
They stick me in an institution.
Said it was the only solution.
To give me the needed professional help.
Protect me from the enemy, myself!
It doesn't matter, I'll probably get hit by a car
and become road kill any way...
Track Name: Kung Pow Chicken
Go, go Kung Pow Chicken
Punchin' and drop kickin'
When Kung Pow Chicken fights,
His enemies death is quickened

Yes he is a chicken
But he is not afraid
There's no weapon to stop him
Not nunchucks, stars or blades

Don't get too close or he'll throw ya
He's an unstoppable poultry warrior
Defeating foes with his Kung Power
In combat, it's a blood shower

Yes, he is a chicken
But he is not afraid
A master of martial arts
With all the tools of the trade
Track Name: Have Some Pez
Hey, come over here. Don't ya wanna be cool?
Wanna forget your problems? And be a part of a group?
Here's something you can do and it'll make you feel great
We'll call you our friend and that's all it'll take

Here, have some pez
Here, have some pez
Here, have some pez
Make it easier to cope

At the party, at the school, hangin' out with bunch of friends
Part of a crowd, part of a scene, you gotta follow all its rules
We socialize, but we've been hypnotized and we don't have our own minds
When we were younger, did we know we'd turn out just the same as the rest
With the teenage attitude, acting dumber than a little kid, segregating ourselves
Fitting right into the stereotype, and that's just what we like
Everyone wants to be an everyone finding problems to the answers in pez
All potential is thrown away because being stupid is being cool

You wasted your money, you spent it all on pez
You wasted your time, you spent it all on pez
You wasted your life, you spent it all on pez
But don't waste mine
Track Name: Greasy Chicken
Listen up mama, there's a new cat in town
Well, he's not really a cat, he's a chicken
But he's the greasiest chicken around
He's been cool like that since the day he hatched
And there ain't no mistikin'
All the little chicks want a piece of Greasy Chicken

Well, he's got mad guitar skills and it's known for miles
That Greasy knows those scales like the back of a reptile
So grease up your feathers
And cruise down to the barnyard boogie
When the Chicken Heads start a-rockin',
You'll be a-hockin' up a loogie
Track Name: Just For The Taste Of It
Come on baby, gonna drink some diet coke now
It's just for the taste of it, wo-oh-oh
C'mon baby, gonna drink some diet coke now
It's just for the taste of it, wo-oh-oh

I can't believe it's just one calorie
No diet aftertaste, can't you see?
In a can filled with thirst-quenching flavor
Brand spankin' new cola with the classic taste you savor

I went and bought soda but it ain't diet coke
It'll have to do right now cuz I'm so damn broke
We're poor dirty punks but we're on MTV
Soon we'll sign to a major label and have good things to drink

I woke up this morning and my agent called me
He'd said buy me diet coke if I appeared on MTV
I went on MTV and and I sang this stupid song
I got so many Diet Cokes that I can't do no wrong
Track Name: Joe and the Chicken Head
Little Joey lived on a farm
Lots of animals he could harm
Cut off the rooster's wing
Tie up a duck's bill with string
Then one day as he ran
He came up with an evil plan
"I know something I could wreck
I might get in trouble but what the heck
I think I'll chop the head off a chicken's neck"
Then he went and got an axe
Loaned to him from Uncle Max
No one was around he was assured
Sliced the feathered neck right off the bird
But as the body moved astray
The head seemed to stare at him in a mysterious way
No one but him was aware
"I don't think they really care"
But afterwards for days and days
He still saw the chicken head's silent gaze

Joe you can't get away
What you did was fowl play
Following you always, it's undead
The laughing, crying chicken head
Nobody can see or hear but you
Your world has become a zoo

Life is hell since you fell to the chicken head
It's eyes ablaze in a staring gaze, pupils shade of red
Yes it died, not Kentucky fried, but it never bled
It's having fun as you shun, no way you could have fled
It will not halt, it's all your fault, can't kill it with lead
But don't complain, it's in your brain, on your sorrow it fed
All the guilt that you built, you'd rather be dead
Now it's done, not worth the fun, the fury of the chicken head
Took a little time for a little crime, the wrath of the chicken head

Help! It's the chicken head, the screaming chicken head
Stop! Stop the chicken head, the rock-n-roll chicken head
Why! Why did I do this to me, the intangable chicken head
Go! Leave me chicken head, the staring chicken head
Die! Why can't it die? The mysterious chicken head
Death! It's the only way it'll disappear because I'm the real chicken head!
