Track Name: Funky Eyeball
Funky eyeball
Rolling on the dancefloor, no jaw
Show me what you've got
Get busy with the hypno-ray
I can depend on you
To make me an eyeball too

Funky eyeball
Rolling on the dancefloor, no jaw
Give it your best shot
Gonna join your space cult
Get nasty with the lizard tongue
We'll have a whole lot of fun

Track Name: How Will I Die
How will I die
Will a meteor fall from the sky
Or maybe a giant wave will wash me away
Pierced through the face
By an aeroplane's waste
Or something altogether more mundane

Perhaps a fight for survival
With some kind of rival
Clutching at my heart as I take my last breath
Volts spilling over
While fixing a toaster
That would be a disappointing death

I won't put a wage
On reaching old age
Surely I'll be taken out by then
Maybe I'm fated
To be reincarnated
And have to live my life all over again

It couldn't get worse
Than waking up in the hearse
And having to escape before I fry
All I know is this:
My ignorance is bliss
I really hope it comes as a surprise

When I die
Track Name: I Want To See You Naked
(I want to see you naked...)

I don't mean to be rude
I'm just curious to see you in the nude
I try not to be ashamed of my desire
My interest is something I could never tire
I want to see you naked

How can it be wrong
To contemplate when every stitch has gone
Beauty may be in the beholder's eyes
But nothing more is needed to make my spirit rise
I want to see you naked
Track Name: Cassini
Cassini, let me hitch a ride
Across the great divide
Seven years doesn't seem too long
To take me to where I belong

The inner system could never contain us
Your plutonium heart will sustain us
Until I set myself down
Onto alien ground
Track Name: Brain In A Jar
I woke up as a brain in a jar
But for the wheels on my trolley, I couldn't go far
A chemical drip gives me all that I need
Nerves disconnected and nothing to bleed

I I I I am am a brain in a jar
I I I I am am a brain in a jar

I'm so very bored
(I'm so bored)
Going out of my mind
(Going out of my tiny mind)
Until my full body transplant, to this life I'm resigned
Who am I without flesh, and where is my soul
In a bunch of synapses floating round in a bowl

I I I I am am a brain in a jar
I I I I am am a brain in a jar
Track Name: Get A Taste
Baby come and get a taste
Why don't you come and get a taste

On you I am fixated
I want to see your pupils dilated
My desire is uncoded
Inhibition outmoded

Baby once you get a taste
You won't let my talent go to waste
Now I know it won't be long
Before I hear you sing my favourite song

Baby once you get a taste
You won't let my talent go to waste
Now I know it won't be long
Before I hear you sing my favourite song

Your resistance is ineffective
Help me achieve my objective
Disappointment will be averted
When you feel what I've inserted

Get ready for insertion baby

Baby once you get a taste
(Oooo get a taste)
You won't let my talent go to waste
Now I know it won't be long
(Oooo it won't be long)
Before I hear you sing my favourite song

Baby once you get a taste
(Oooo get a taste)
You won't let my talent go to waste
Now I know it won't be long
(Oooo it won't be long)
Before I hear you sing my favourite song

You are the one for whom I have a fascination
I have persued your hand with much determination
As a result of our mutual attraction
We will soon consumate our evening's transaction
Don't be scared, I can sense you have some trepidation
Just lie back and you'll receive the ultimate sensation
Your skin conductivity betrays your gland reaction
This night will surely culminate in total satisfaction
Track Name: Beyond The Pale
You waded into the quagmire
And as a human you failed
Put you beyond the pale

Your action was morally rancid
It crossed the very last line
There's no returning this time

What made you take this direction
And bring disaster to hand
Was it spontanious or planned

How did the seed get planted
And why did it grow
Into the lowest of the low

I waded into the quagmire
And as a human I failed
Put me beyond the pale

My action was morally rancid
It crossed the very last line
There's no returning this time

What made me take this direction
And bring disaster to hand
Was it spontanious or planned

How did the seed get planted
And why did it grow
Into the lowest of the low
Track Name: Be My Waveguide
Waveguide Waveguide Waveguide

Who can say what my life is
All I need is more time
Every new day is such a burden
It just makes me want to hide

Be my waveguide
I need somebody who's on my side
Be my waveguide
How do you know until you try

Waveguide

I can't deal with twisted mind games
Why should I play them too
Isn't life already hard enough
I've got much better things to do

Be my waveguide
I need somebody who's on my side
Be my waveguide
How do you know until you try

Be my waveguide
I need somebody who's on my side
Be my waveguide
How do you know until you try

Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Be my waveguide
Track Name: Why Are You Pushing Me Away
(...Be honest, I want to know why you are pushing me away...)

When you would turn your back on me
I never thought I'd see the day
I no longer understand
What's going on behind your eyes
You sacrificed our history
Just for the sake of your own pride
Why are you pushing me away

I long for us to talk, but no,
You never let me have my say
You gave no reasons, nothing said,
So I am forced to make a guess
I didn't always get it right
Of course I have my own regrets
But why are you pushing me away
