EL TOPO
we tried it a thousand times and we can’t
it’s hard rock and we can’t do it
perfection is to get lost running
perfection is to get lost finding you
we tied a thousand body bags
it’s tradition so we do it
just a thousand times?
because it’s done, it’s done
tradition

PAY ME IN HEADS
i get a funny feeling when you talk to me
why the hell are you stopping me in the street?
i’m not from here I don’t know your currency
nothing is free
i get a funny feeling when you say to me
pay me in heads

THIRD RAIL
do not touch the third rail
punch the third rail
cop couldn’t crush skulls with a smile any more
so he 2-3-8 it
didn’t laugh when the last kid hit the morgue
so he hit the pavement
stand clear
the enforcer
is frying
he burnt his gun hand
he charred his choking hand
oh no! commuter shock
bacon on a frying pan
blue lights sobbing
white shirts sobbing
little piggies cry all the way home
stand clear
the enforcer is frying
stand clear the enforcer
enforces no more
do not touch the third rail
punch the third rail
not all good, either
