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

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

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

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...

Blood Puddle 02:09
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

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

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...

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

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

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

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!
