Ozone - I've got blood on my hands, And sand between my toes If the crowd gets too unruly, We'll spray 'em with the hose I'm so bored with the whole thing -keep hearing laughter when i turn- Seen a million sunlit faces But none that really burned I can't keep myself from laughing When i spot someone posessed The fool that's always grinning, Never quite gets the jest But i know the one i'm laughing at Plays it by the book And screams for revolution Behind his vacant look We'll keep their eyes red & runny, Kill them in their homes Watch them pray forgiveness And pay interrest on their loans It was us in the beamers, The penthouses & shrines. Uf you want absolution We can provide all kinds...

Superstooge These are the words that you're forced to belive in When you don't wanna choose the theme or decide what to mean Those funny thoughts in yr head now,any-which-way Will shake yr foundation down,then make yr day When the thrashers are pounding Much too fast for love And the neonlights blinding Who could ask for more? Blame the world conspiracy for the mood that yre in Or any other elevated word to describe the scheme Then sit and watch yr navel growing dirtier by the day Listening to the drone from the era constructing decay Well the thrasher's still pounding And who won't give a damn About the final solution Of the master plan Well,the trashers are pounding And i'll dream away I'll go anywhere i wanna I'm not gonna stay Then if i could rewind and start all over again I'd buy a bulletproof conception and a couple of matching friends But then again my right hand fills in the form Those spastic signs to keep it close to the norm Tuning (l to h): d g d g a d Personnel: geb: d,perc. snah: lead v,el.

Hey jane - And when he calls You'll take the blame And when he leaves It'll still feel the same It hurts me too The way you try for him The way you die for him Fly Be the silly butterfly Dance your way across the sky Shine Brighter than the summer sun You know you are the only one To see you shrink To see you fade I don't know How much more i can take But you decide You dream your own lifelie But why do you kiss it goodbye?

Personnel : snah: the bells,the bells!! bent: d t.seim: clarophone Words: none Music: sæther,ryan & seim Note: in my humble opinion,eric dolphy was one of the greatest sax/flute players ever. Check out his work with coltrane (1961/62) or his mind- blowing blue note album "out to lunch" (1964),and be awed. This song doesn't sound like him or feel like his stuff at all,but is a tribute and thank you to a very inspiring human being.
