Cocaine.


02. The Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
I've got a secret, I cannot say
Blame all the movement to give it away
You've got somethin, I understand
Holding it tightly, caught on command
Leap of faith, do you doubt?
Cut you in, I just cut you out

[chorus:]
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone
Whatever you do
Don't tell anyone

Look for reflections, in your face
Canine devotion, time can't erase
Out on the corner, locked in your room
I never believe them and I never assume
Still can't believe there is a lie
Promise is promise, an eye for an eye
We've got something to reveal
No one can know how we feel

[repeat chorus 2x]

I think you already know
How far I'd go not to say
You know the art isn't gone
And I'm taking my song to the grave

[repeat chorus]


03. Leg Of Lamb

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
You're a head case, with a smile
Can't stop to make up your mind
Education is so lame (so lame), when you bitch and you moan
You're a loose girl, I'm a guy (hey)
You're a truth freak with a lie
This situation is so strange, it's a TV show

In a hotel, on the phone
You're gonna leave me, I should've known (I should've known)
And I was thinking, it's so sad
I didn't want you to go.

Don't wanna follow the laws of man, (yes, sir)
Bloody apron, leg of lamb
It's so hard to win, when there's so much to lose

Infiltrate the walls that are caving in
It ain't a bad thing,
This ain't reality

Infiltrate the walls that are caving in
It ain't a bad thing
Because it is natural

Second Avenue, raising Cain
I'm a sinner, ring my bell (ring my bell)
I'll tell you what
I'd get up, if I knew why I fell


04. Auto Pilot

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
Silent hell on the marble slab
The best trip that I've ever had
Higher than a jet plane, pass it around
My drinks on empty, need another round

[chorus:]
I wanna fly, wanna ride with you
Is this the best that you can do?
I wanna fly, wanna ride with you
Higher than a jet plane with you

Will we arrive in the middle of nowhere
Don't act like you know, I been here so many times
I never seen you before
But now that I have, I don't wanna see you no more

Higher than a jet plane with you
Higher than a jet plane with you

[repeat chorus]

Ah-ah, auto pilot no control
Ah-ah, ahh
Ah-ah, auto pilot no control
Ah-ah, ahh

Higher than a jet plane with you
Higher than a jet plane with you

[repeat chorus]


05. Better Living Through Chemistry

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
The blue pill opens your eyes
Is there a better way?
A new religion prescribed
To those without the faith
A hero holding a knife
And blood is not enough
Is it too late to go back?
Is it too late to go?

There's no one here (there's no one here)
And people everywhere (people everywhere)
You're on your own

Let's see if I'm hearing this right
You suggest I should take
A never-ending story
To carry out the day
Your idols burn in the fire
The mob comes crawling up
I'm reclaiming my mind
Destroying everyone

There's no one here (there's no one here)
And people everywhere (people everywhere)
You're all alone


06. Monsters In The Parasol

Music & lyrics by Homme, Mario Lalli
The walls are closing in again, oh well
The walls are closing in again, oh well
I seen some thing I thought I never saw
Covered in hair (hair)
Paul's dad is warped and bubbling, oh well
Paul's dad is warped and bubbling, oh well
And my mind is out here on another wave
Covered in hair (hair)

She won't grow

[chorus:]
You've got a monster (distress) in your parasol (why, yes)
You've got a monster (divorce) in your parasol (of course)
You've got a monster (displeasure) in your parasol (my treasure)
You've got a monster (your pain) in your parasol (drives me insane)
Paul's sister is an alien, oh well

Paul's sister is an alien, oh well
I seen some things I thought I never saw
Covered in hair (hair)

She won't grow

You've got a monster (distress) in your parasol
You've got a monster (divorce) in your parasol (of course)
You've got a monster (displeasure) in your parasol (my treasure)
You've got a hole (your pain) in you I never saw (drives me insane)
In your parasol, in your parasol (insane)


07. Quick And To The Pointless

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
[All * are lyrics sung in Dutch]

[Spoken:]
I don't even know what I'm doing here
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

A little girl walking down the street
Godverdomme*, you gotta be with me
Well I know, you know
Everybody everyone let's go

Oh, baby, baby, you're so sweet
Ah, ah, wooo

Het leven is hard, de mensen worden bang**
I'm so old, you're so young
I know, you know
Everybody everyone let's go

Oh, baby, baby, you're so sweet
Goddamn, ah, ah, whoa

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Ik denk van ja, maar nee***
Little girl, listen what I say
You know, I know
Everybody everyone let's go

Oh, baby, baby, you're so sweet
Whoooo
Ah, baby, baby, you're so sweet
Goddamn, ah, ah, whoa!

[* Goddamn]
[** Life is hard, people are getting scared]
[*** I'm thinking "yes", but no]


08. In The Fade

Music & lyrics by Homme, Mark Lanegan
Cracks in the ceiling, crooked pictures in the heart
Countin and breathin, I'm leaving here tomorrow
They don't know, I'd never do you any good
Laughin is easy, I would if I could

Ain't gonna worry
Just live till you die, wanna drown
With nowhere to fall into the arms of someone
There's nothing to save I know
You live till you die

Live till you die, I know

Loosing a feelin', that I couldn't give away
Countin and breathin, disappearin in the fade
They don't know, I'd never do you any good
Stoppin and stayin, I would if I could

Ain't gonna worry
Just live till you die, wanna drown
With nowhere to fall into the arms of someone
There's nothing to save I know
You live till you die


09. Tension Head

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
Every day I wake up feelin' this way
I take it downtown, with all the action goin' down
I strike a match, strike a match, cook it up!

(High life) I'm feelin' so sick
(Low life) I feel so fuckin' sick

On the bathroom floor
Gotta get out and get right
Hustlin' little girls
Machine, little boys

Gotta get out
Gotta get out and get right
I gotta get out
No more! [3x]

(My life) I'm feelin' so sick on the bathroom floor
(Your life) I'm feelin' so sick
No more!

(High life, low life) [2x]
(High life) I'm feelin' so sick on the bathroom floor
(Low life) Sick... no... no more


10. Lightning Song

Music by Dave Catching
Instrumental.


11. I Think I Lost My Headache

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
You know why
They called and just let it ring
No reply
The door is open I swear
Ain't no use in picking up
You know why

It's all my head I know
So they tell me so
Until my head explodes
Into my head it goes

Tastes so good
Oh, but I knew it would
Tastes so good
Burn like a match house
Medicate just to make you soft
Love is blind

Catch and release me
What the hell were they thinking of
You know why


12. Ode To Clarissa

Music & lyrics by Joshua Homme and Nick Oliver
I knock on your door
I tiptoe on the floor
I hope your daddy ain't home right now
He warned me once before

You know he warned me once before

I stay up late
So we can keep our date
I love that we don't get no sleep
So to your window I creep
You know he warned me once before

[chorus:]
I'm the one your mamma told ya 'bout
I'm the one your pappa told ya 'bout

Now you're in love
And why shouldn't you be
I'm everything you'll never be
You say don't leave
Baby, I can't wait
Next time, we share my second base

[repeat chorus]
