"Blind turns, devastating revelations and ruthless machinations inside my feeble skull. [SHC] is a sinister force at work. Opinions are worthless."
Aaron Nichols on August 31, 2013

"Smartly clever! A great way to criticize a few values of our society! Illustrations finely done! Can't wait for the next one!"
Felipe Carlos Queiroz Mantovani - October 28, 2009

Track Name: Social Darwinism
look alive
there's 1000 ways to die
poppin THRU the channels
i now know how whales survived.
What is this note?
Is that some sort of joke?
I'd write another love song
except it would make me
emote much more than
I could comfortably cope

witH my inner child and HIS inner voice
I am a 80s child with a village voice
I'm a HIDDEN child with an INNER VOICE
SPEAKINGin denial tongues.

If a hummingbird beats it's wings
at 8 - 10 beats per second- what?
Why would you talk about your mothers' heart rate It's BPM makes your body temp go to 30 degrees below. but we all agreed not to mention me:
I believe in my record collection.

I will conceive wat you believe in
the discovery channel says spider-bites can kill
me! It's cute how the demon can cue the reasons
but just don't trip him or he'll fall in your semen

there comes a time but dont get em high

comes a time but don't get em high

the kids you mind just dont get em high

there comes a time but don't make em high

You're lost. you have no core. And I am lost

I'm a pack rat with no where to go you gotta pack up now what you don't know
I'm a pack rat with no where to go you gotta pack up now what you don't know
I'm a pack rat with no where to go you gotta pack up now what you don't know
I'm a pack rat with no where to go you gotta pack up now what you don't know
a cut and paste heart is all that you have
is that some sort of joke?
What is this note? Is that some sort of joke?

There's 1000 ways to die...
Track Name: Too High
when I get too high, I know you're there
by my side. you took me there.
Trying times
I know you're there
but only one of us
can not get out of it


yea Ive seen you (open up I'll believe you)
you're the enemy
when I get too high
I can rely
On you to take me there
but only one of us
will remain stuck out there

and I walk through the side
I'm on the inside
la la la la inside la la laa

trying times
every day around me
and if I ever get out.
I'll write someday.

doo dahh do dah
wah wah wah
doo dah doo dah

"What is the difference between a truck full of bowling balls and a truck full of dead babies?"

"you give up?"

yes I do...
(you can't use a pitchfork to unload the bowling balls.)

Ahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

when I get too high
when I get too high
when I get too high
when I get too high (too high)
when I get too high (too high)
when I get too high (too high)
when I get too high (too high)
when I get too high (too high)
when I get too high (too high)

dragonflies
pick and stare
all around you fools aware
of the smoke that surrounds me
it's a burden that no one should
have to hold. . .

but I'm not over it.
Track Name: motherfucker part II
MOTHERFUCKER II

I wish I knew the meaning
the meaning of it all
walking round my bedrooms
staring at the walls

Lying face up
staring at the ceiling from the view of my couch
I'm not motivated enough to go outside today to play to do anything
I know I should go and get a job
I know I should find a place to live
but I dont want to live anymore

I'm getting tired of all this
I'm getting tired of all this
I don't want to live anymore.
I'm getting tired of all this
all
all all

all all

It's a motherfucker
being here without you
thinking bout the good times
thinking bout the bad
and I won't ever be the same
and I won't ever be the same
and I won't ever be the same
Track Name: Mad Weight
MAD WEIGHT

She put on mad weight.
trying to make it in new york.

her face is as sad
like the pimples on her feet

still I would kiss her
if the chance fell on my lap. on my lap

She can sing
she can dance
after all I'm in a trance
from the nine inch nails track on the jukebox fuckup baby
tonight it dates from 89

"What is Michael Jackson
and Farah Faucet getting this"
Christmas she asked me one night

"patrick swayze" she said


If I could
I would write you a cheque
payin you to leave me alone
once- once and for all

if I were wrong
you would leave me in hell

but you're still here in your spacepants...
making me tired - you're running around in my head all day
with with your multinational billionaire corporation that's been around for a hundred years- ready to rob me blind - with you as my wife.

I'm still here
still humming your song
after all this time

Hey paper trail what's up?
can i bum a cigarette?
does my hair look gay?
well I'm not the
ex-actress with a
chip on her shoulder


at least not today.
Track Name: Counterfeit Casio
COUNTERFEIT CASIO

I'm feeling like a counterfeit casio today
not knowing where I belong
in this thrift shop world where I can't even play a song
I'm a piece of the puzzle that just doesn't...

Another year older now
I'm in that inbetween stage...
I'm starting to lie about my age

"I cry because it feels good on my corroded batteries"
my batteries just died.

I'm feeling like a counterfeit casio
whos broken buttons are permanently pushed in.

where are
my accomplishments?
what have I shown?
who is watching me?
I am still unknown.

still there's nothing better than
being older than...

Happy fucking birthday to me
Do you like figs?
(*then how about a date?)

Happyt yfucking bday

where I'm too old get get relief
yet too young to save)

I scrimped and I saved and I chased the cliche
I did what I can

I had some money once
but it went up my nose.

since I've been born i've made the choice
to diverge from the norm

i'm a chiorboy with an ashtray heart
(telling me to do what I know now is wrong)
looking for my brand new start
i'm a chiorboy with an ashtray heart
looking for a brand new start
I'm a chiorboy
ashtray heart
looking for
a brand new
start

i'll try to do things
the way I think I should.

I'm just a kid
in a grown up shell
I'm just a man
in an upside down well. Up and up and away I go. I don't drown I prosper well.
so
it's up up up and away I go.
up up up and away i go
up up up and away i go
