He Liked To Feel It Lyrics
There was a boy
Who liked to wiggle his tooth loose so he could show it
Then we'd watch
While he'd tie it to a doorknob, wind up, and then slam it

That was how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
He told us how he liked to feel it when it came out

He grew tired
Of his doorknobs and so he thought up a brand-new trick
He said he'd tie
His tooth to his dog's tail, find a stick, wind up, and then throw it

That was how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
He told us how he liked to feel it when it came out

He called his dog
But just as he was set to throw, his dad arrived there
He yelled at him
And got some pliers, held him, wound up, and yanked it out right there

That wasn't how he liked to have his teeth pulled out
He wouldn't tell us how it felt when it came out

Our Driver Gestures Lyrics
When you start your journey, you go and meet your driver
You shake his hand, and hope he's feeling well
The things to come may be somewhat unfamiliar
Like eating herring where the sun does not go down
Our driver calculates what time we'll hit town

And every time a border comes
We go inside and meet with someone
Perhaps a form will need to be filled in
Then we can go and restart up the engines

Plumbing often varies in the various different countries
I like to crouch down and turn on those bidets
I'll have a cocktail, pick at my fingernails
And then I'll squat down for a wash to end the day
Our driver recommends we try the souffle

And every time a border comes
We go inside and meet with someone
Perhaps a form will need to be filled in
Then we can go and restart up the engines

Then we went down under, and we were told of farmers
Who brought some pigs here from the old country
But pigs eat turtle eggs and turtles eat jellyfish
And now you get stung if you're swimming in the sea
Our driver gestures out behind the palm trees

And every time a border comes
We go inside and meet with someone
Perhaps a form will need to be filled in
Then we can go and restart up the engines

My Enemies Lyrics
I sit and concentrate, and try hard not to hate my enemies
I try to picture them dressed up as furry little bunnies
But when I look into their glass eyes
I can see they're cold and hard and pink

Hopping 'round, hopping on their two legs
Cute little legs, hopping around and...

I think of dictators who were known to have been especial brutes
And I try to picture them gathered together in their bathing suits
But when I look down at their bodies
I can see they're warm and soft and pink

Standing around, standing on their two legs
Two little legs, standing around and...

I try to meditate, control my hate just like I know I should
But I can't help myself, and I keep it up because it feels so good
But when I look down at my belly
I can see it's pink and soft and weak

Kneeling down, kneeling on my two legs
Two skinny legs, I'm kneeling down and...

There Are Many Dangers Lyrics
If your toast gets stuck in the toaster
Do not put a fork in the toaster while it is hooked up
Oh, look out
I did and I got caught in the current
Pulled me in and shook me while it held me tight

There are many dangers
They could be in a toaster or a common thing
You must keep a lookout
Remember all the rules they have for everything

When it's very, very cold out
Do not put your tongue on cold metal things
For example, stop signs
I did and they had to pull some skin off
Then they had to fill my mouth with cotton at night

There are many dangers
They could be in a toaster or a common thing
You must keep a lookout
Remember all the rules they have for everything

When they'd taken out my tonsils
I brought them home
Kept them in a jar on the shelving in my room
Between the toaster, stop sign, and my tonsils
I've got lots of things to think about at night

There are many dangers
Could be in a toaster or a common thing
You must keep a lookout
Remember all the rules they have for everything

All Of This Ugly Lyrics
After all these precious years you chose to just give in
Why did you leave so many things undone
I only scratched the surface of the thoughts you had within
and for me your life had just begun
Why did you think that you were never good enough to give
when you accepted me right from the start
I never saw the side of you that didn't want to live
and I miss you from the bottom of my heart
What was it that you never told a soul about yourself
what kind of thoughts were buried inside
was there really no one there you thought would understand
or was the only barrier your pride
with so much love around you I just wish you'd loved yourself
'cos no one here can ever take your place
you were someone special and my words just can't express
how much I miss the warmth of your embrace

Why did you just give in
why did you just give up and let it go
I guess I'll never know

It's hard to see you disappear without a real good bye
there's so many things I wish I'd said
But all the little things you did that made it all worthwhile
meant more than all the tears you ever shed
You always seemed so happy but I guess no one can tell
what goes on inside a persons mind
you loved your children dearly and you did your very best
and someone new like you is hard to find

Chorus

All the things you went through for your children every day
and all the sacrifices that you made
were worth much more than anything that wealth could ever buy
and now that love can never be repaid
In the end I guess you couldn't take it anymore
so you closed your eyes and swallowed all your pain
I know that you've done the same so many times before
but all the questions in my mind remain

An Old Scab Lyrics
I know the answers to the questions in your mind
I've been to the places that you couldn't even find
I seen all the things you never thought you'd get to see
I've been everyone you couldn't be
I've read all the stories and I know how they end
I've fixed all the broken things that you couldn't mend
I've taken all the chances that you never even took
and I've found the things you overlooked

I'm the answer to your questions, I believe when you're in doubt
I'm based on a rumour, I'm spread by word of mouth
There's no proof of my existence I'm a myth that you arouse

I'm your life and religion, your faith and your hope
Your drug and your addiction your injection of dope

I've met all the people that you never dared to meet
I've played all the games of life and never once been beat
I've walked upon the water without even getting wet
and there's not a thing that I regret
I've done everything that's wrong and made it right again
I've talked to all my enemies and turned them into friends
I've been crucified and resurrected from the dead
Do you believe a single word I've said?

I'm the answer to your questions, I believe when you're in doubt
I'm based on a rumour, I'm spread by word of mouth
There's no proof of my existence I'm a myth that you arouse

I'm your life and religion, your faith and your hope
Your drug and your addiction your injection of dope

I'm everywhere and nowhere I'm your saviour when you sin
I'm your great escape to higher ground when you give in
I'm everybody's scapegoat I'm a glimpse of clarity
Would you sacrifice yourself for me?

My Own Sunrise Lyrics
When we met, it was in the hot green jungle
Your perfect flesh impervious to anything fungal
You would sweat coconut milk and
I'd lie awake, restless with the heat during the night

Dawn would come and I would start to feel my own sunrise
But you'd just lie, sleeping

And so we went away in search of gentler breezes
When we arrived, I longed to lie and rustle in your grasses
But you would not permit me to retire there
None but a fly might settle on the meadow of your leg

Dawn would come and I would start to feel my own sunrise
But you'd just lie, sleeping

Then we moved on until we reached the tundra in the winter
Of course I longed to kiss her frosty teeth in the cold air
But now I've grown bloated on seal fat
Not even flies will settle on the meadow of her leg

Dawn would come and I would start to feel my own sunrise
But you'd just lie, sleeping

Swatting Flies Lyrics
Now that I've used up all my ideas
Here in my little house by the sea
I search for a usable memory but none comes to me

In grade one, my teacher could do embalming
She'd stuff the bodies of dead little birds
She told us if ever we found one, just to bring it to her

And in the science room was an iguana
It lay very still in its cage
And we'd feed him living flies

Then she'd read the old testament to us
But first she'd remind us the stories were true
And we'd hear of locusts and plagues and the tortures they knew

And in the science room was an iguana
I remember it now in my house by the seaside
Swatting flies
