Antipop (1999)


I am the plan, I am the man who tells you what and when you can.
I'm the old one that torments you. I am the voice that tells you to:
"Don't get caught with your fingers in my pie.
Mess with me and boy you're surely gonna' die.
If ever you're in doubt about who or where I am.
I'm here, I'm there, I'm everywhere. I am your Uncle Sam."
Electric Uncle Sam
You beg me please on bended knees not to sit among these enemies.
If you feel like you wanna dance then step aside and take a chance.
"Don't get caught with your fingers in my pie.
Mess with me and boy you're surely gonna' die.
If ever you're in doubt about who or where I am.
I'm here, I'm there, I'm everywhere. I am your Uncle Sam."

Antipop (1999)


There's a boy out 'luma way named Joe Eugene.
He's one mellow ass son of a bitch-a.
He loves his wheat grass and cold bean curd.
He's one healthy ass sone of a bitch-a.
But late at night he sneaks on down to the liquor store for a bottle of sheep dip.
Natural Joe, got an easy flow. Whereever he goes they say "here comes Joe."
Joe, he's a happy Man and he won't do you wrong.
He's one respectable son of a bitch-a.
Now Joe ain't no patriarch, but he's smooth with the girls.
He ain't no cahuvinistic sone of a bitch-a.
But late at night he sneaks on down to the porno store for a little bit of...
Nature Joe, he's hanging low. Whereever he goes they say "here comes Joe."
There's a boy out 'luma way named Joe Eugene.

"Lacquer Head"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


Sometimes bored and sometimes lonely Pimple faced and rather homely
He wasn't much for socializin' The TV kept a mesmerizin'
In one ear and out the other, picked up a trick from his older brother
Got him a can of sniffin' sauce Pinned his mind up on a cross
Lacquer head knows but one desire Lacquer head sets his skull on fire
Lacquer head knows no in betweens Huffin' on bags of gasoline
Sniffin' paint since the seventh grade She was high on gin and gatorade
On turpentine she lost her luck Fell in front of a speeding pick-up truck
He was a boy of soft demeanor and he loved his carburetor cleaner
The vapor made a sweet aroma He sniffed himself into a coma
Lacquer head feeds his one desire Lacquer head sets his brain on fire
Lacquer head knows no in betweens Huffin' on bags of gasoline
Keep on sniffin' till yer brain goes pop


"Antipop"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


The Earth it did crack open on the day that I was born
And a thousand merry pranksters came dancin' through the storm.
I lay cradle bound a howlin' out my mind
Not knowin' years to come I'd be shoutin' over din
I sucked information through the holes in my skull
As my belly gurgles hungry my mouth is always full.
I am Antipop; I'll run against the grain till the day I drop.
I am the Antipop; the man you cannot stop.
As a young man, I plug into the tube
But the stench of all that pretense I cannot muddle through.
I lay on my back and scan the radio
All that comes out my speakers is a steady syrup flow.
I suck information through the holes in my skull
As my belly gurgles hungry my mouth is always full.
I stood by watching and I seen 'em come and go.
I seen 'em make that million then vanish in the snow.
They come upon you like a pack of rabid hounds
As they slobber in your ears and purge you with their sounds.
Pushing misinformation through the holes in my skull
My belly gurgles nauseous and still my mouth is full.
I am Antipop; I'll run against the grain till the day I drop.
I am the Antipop; the man you cannot stop.


"Eclectic Electric"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


Part I - Blinded by the Sun
Bring me back again, I'd really rather not be out here on my own.
Someone reel me in, I'm drifting ever farther from my home.
I remember when I was a baby gazing in amazement at the sky.
Sing it twinkle twinkle little baby daddy's gonna learn you to fly...high...
Like a coment through the sky.
Bring me back again, I'd really rather not be out here on my own.
I'm drifting with the wind, trying to hold the course that I've been shown.
I remember when I was a baby staring in amazement at the sun.
Better shield your eyes now little baby no one ever said you were the one;
No one ever said you were the one who can't be blinded by the sun.
I think I'm blinded by the sun.

Part II - Sanity is Coming to Town
I like to taunt, I like to tease. I'll bring your psyche to its knees.
Juggling. Sanity is coming to your town.
Who gives a damn what you say, you're pissing all your dreams away.
Juggling. Sanity is coming to your town.

Part III - Pressing Onward Towards the Light
Pressing onward through the night. Pressing onward towards the light.


"Greet The Sacred Cow"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


Slice me up a big slab of that sympathetic cheer.
If I'm zapped with radiation they say I'll last another year.
Line 'em up now to greet the sacred cow.
My hands are full of protein, my arms are made of fire.
If you're calling me a diplomat, I'll be calling you a liar.
Line 'em up now to greet the sacred cow. Line 'em up now to greet the sacred cow.


"Mama Didn't Raise No Fool"
m. Les Claypool, Tom Morello, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


The best of times, the worst of times, the times you can't ignore.
Sometimes you bite the bullet and flip flop on the floor.
They tell you where to go, and they tell you what to do.
They set your face on fire then stomp it out with their shoes.
I ain't no fool. Mama didn't raise no fool.
The times I can't complain are the times I do the most.
On a diet of black coffee and prozac buttered toast.
These eunuchs in their prada and Gucci flavored clothes.
Wouldn't know a fresh perspective if it bit 'em up on the nose.
I ain't no fool. Mama didn't raise no fool.
Don't do as they say, just say as they do.
No flavor's quite so bitter as the taste of one's own shoe.
I ain't no fool. Mama didn't raise no fool.


"Dirty Drowning Man"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


I'm a dog, a dirty flying dog.
I drink Campari with marinated wild hog.
I've no sense, I like electric fence.
I put barbed wire in my pants and do a celtic dance.
But when I can, I'm a giving man.
I'll flip you out the fire and back up into the frying pan.
And if you're down looking like you're gonna drown.
Of all your friends I'm the one who's most apt to stick around.
I'm a drowning man. Who will save this drowning man.
Who will save this drowning man. Who will save this dirty drowning man.
You're so fine, so bright and shiney fine.
And I'm so proud to say that you in fact are a friend of mine.
And doubly pleased with crooked wobbly knees.
I dive on in and backstroke right across these seas of cheese.
But on the times when I'm not such a giving man.
Please flip me out of the fire and backup into the frying pan.
And if you're down looking like you're gonna drown.
Of all your friends I'm the one who's most apt to stick around.
I'm a drowning man. Who will save this drowning man.
Who will save this drowning man. Who will save this dirty drowning man.

l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


Bodacious am a whole lotta' bull over nineteen hundred pounds.
He's born in Galry, Oklahoma and he's the baddest sonsabitch around
If a Burma bull ever were a super star then Bodacious just might be.
He's a cream colored, beefy brawn, full-fledged, four footed bovine celebrity.
Who's gonna ride Bodacious? Who's gonna tame him down?
Look out for Bodacious, he's bound to hold his ground.
Here comes Bodacious, ya'll just step aside.
Big and bad Bodacious takes a toll from those who ride.
Young Bo met a man named Tuff Hedeman at the start of his buckin' spree
And Tuff became one of the few to make the whistle bkac in Nineteen Ninety Three.
Tuff tried to ride Bo again at the finals in Nineteen Ninety Five.
Bodacious had got a little older and wiser Tuff barely came out alive.


"Power Mad"
m. Les Claypool, Tom Morello, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


Military show is Blastin' off to Kosovo.
Military show with lightning speed. Sensitivity?
Oh, just a rusty nail in the corporate show.
How many stabs before we bleed?
Those Pinocchios chattering out in stereo
Boy Pinnocchio and his golden deed. Masculinity?
Oh, galvanized in the world wide show as we fertilise the seed.
Power mad, I didn't chop the tree down dad
I only try to do what's right.
Power man, the best friend that you ever had
Unless of course you choose to fight.
Power mad, driving out of the shadows, he never tires when he plays.
Power mad, he's a streak in the night time
Speculating how he'll take on the world some day.
Originality? Oh, just a rusty nail in a Broadway show
How many stabs before we succeed. Power mad, I didn't drop my pants down dad
I know my left hand from my right.
Power man, the best friend that you ever had unless of course you lose the fight.


"Final Voyage of The Liquid Sky"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999)


I been fightin' gravity since I was two.
Questers of the prize blind men int he snow.
Some streak the skies I choose to go below.
Skin moves towards malignant worshipping the sun.
They clamber over corpses to be the chosen ones.
Drift along liquid sky.
Descending through the darkness to the vast terrain.
Down here on the bottom you rarely hear the rain.
Drift along liquid sky.


"Coattails of A Dead Man"
m. Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde, Brain
l. Les Claypool

Antipop (1999), They Can't All Be Zingers (2006)


He wasn't lookin' for fanfare or fame but it all came around just the same.
He then met a girl with desire in her eye, he gave her love, she took his name.
The times they were good, the times they were bad
Most times it was just in between.
The hard pill he swallowed was the times that they had
She put on display for all to be seen.
Some find their solace in work or the lord, she was quite content in her dream.
When his eyes they burned from the bright lime light
He found comfort in the bottle of Ol' Jimmy Beam.
One day from the depths of his deep darkened hole
He reached out for something to feel.
She offered back nothin' but lack of respect
So he left himself out with two barrels of steel.
She cried in the day, she cried in the night.
She cried loudest when someone was near.
Whether crying for him or she cried for herself
The bigger the camera, the bigger the tear.
Most folks agree that she was living a hell
And publicly she showed her pain.
And never once was there a thought for herself
And the ever-growing slices of fortune and fame.
Now on the coattails of a dead man she'll ride
On the coattails of a dead man she'll ride.
On the coattails of a dead man she'll ride she'll ride
On the coattails of a dead man she'll ride she'll ride high.
