Idiot Flesh, “Idiot Song”, 1997

Directed by: Annmarie Piette

Ladies and germs as I’ve already said, you might as well stay ‘cause you’re already…
Yes, your dead like us. Dead like toenails.

Leave your troubles at the door. They can’t help you anymore.

You’re dead like us. Dead like Hair.

Cross your eyes and wiggle your toes. Lean back and touch your fingers to your nose. Swear up and down that you never took a drink. Take ‘em to your grave and show ‘em what you think of their…

Worldly pleasures are all in your mouth, So come on baby we’re all headed…
Look out, you’re dead like us. Dead like candy.

Your work, your talk, your body don’t do much good for you.
Send ‘em all back. The can melt ‘em down for glue.

Dead like us. Dead like gravy.

How I wish that the world had just one throat and my fingers were around it. I’m not mad, I’m not peessed, but you and me baby we belong deceased.

Cross your toes and wiggle your eyes. Lean back and put your head between your thighs. Swear up and down that you never took a dive. Take ‘em to a parking lot and show ‘em your more dead than a…

A live chicken is handy in a pinch. But give us your first born and man it’s a cinch if your dead like us.

Dead like cornflakes.

Folks say Ambugotten is a-comin’ But when the end-time comes I’m gonna be long gone. Dead like us. Dead like baby frogs. Dead like Freddy’s backwards dog, yes we’re dead like…

You guessed it, ladies and gentleman, dead like God. Thank you very much.

So I started looking at Idiot Flesh’s other songs that I haven’t listened to yet…Just as weird as always, Idiot Flesh.

Idiot Flesh - Twitch

The time is now, and it’s just another time.
The moon is full, and it doesn’t mean a thing.
This song is an ancient one, it’s older than the rocks.

Nothing new ever happens in the world today.

Endless is the number of moves that don’t exist.
There’s a shaking shell of index fingers,
There’s a trigger on the gun, a smile on the face.

Nothing new ever happens in the world today.

Submit to the cavernous yield of the Blue Head.

There’s one tin horn, played proud for the ones who died.
Another tear is shed as the dragon picks his teeth.
Once again the jester laughs from the mouth of an infant child.
Nothing new ever happens in the world today.

Submit to the cavernous yield of the Blue Head.

Thrill with us to yesternow, win some awards in neverwhere.
Trade in your old gods; maybe you could be Catholic,
If you have the money that you saved from the same job, baby.
You should change your name so it looks good on paper.
Buy some new clothes, maybe sleep with a Kennedy.

How very nice to be noticed, like everyone is noticed.
The shepherd of the lemmings on the TV screen.

Through all the glitter and smoke and sweat and dirt we march,
Uphill ‘til we reach the bottom, plant flags to air our guilt.

We can’t be late or all the masks we find won’t fit.
Important gestures while we preach, question nothing that we teach.
And happily ever after remains just out of reach.

Wow there must be a scientist living there or something

Is a person In your neighborhood A person That You meet each day
