Track Name: Dave The Bastard
here’s the tale of dave the bastard
a nasty young man was our dave
around the prettiest of schoolgirls
he’d drop his kecks and misbehave

outside the gates is dave the bastard
drooling over the girls inside
eeny meeny miny mo
time to choose his child bride

news soon broke of dave the bastard
the pervert who lived on pekinpah road
late one night as dave a-slumbered
someone broke into his humble abode

there wasn’t much left of dave the bastard
when the police kicked down his door
his balls were nailed to the fireplace
the rest: a bloody mess on the kitchen floor

whoever did kill our dear dave the bastard?
to this day the police never found out
but no-one here missed our dear dave the bastard
on that there is not the slightest of doubts

here lies what’s left of dave the bastard
seventy-nine to twenty-one-one
butchered in bed in the dead of night
a lonesome pervert and an unwanted son
Track Name: Fabulous Stains
panties round your ankles
vomit coats your hair
make up like a mime
the thousand yard stare
nails like rusty razors
a drunken sailor’s mouth
ya grabbed my icy tongue
and ya shoved it down south

you’re the junkman’s treasure
a broken umbrella in heavy rains
i want you to make me so dirty
let me touch your fabulous stains

ash-trays for eyes
with sandpaper skin
an overblown ego
junkie prince thin
count the bones in your back
when you’ve got your shirt off
can’t breathe when you smoke
and there’s blood when you cough

you’re a trash-bag frankenstein
a creature from below the drains
i want you to make me so dirty
let me kiss your fabulous stains

raised in a mansion
ya now live in a slum
they say the cream rises
along with the scum
born in a basement
now ya shut out the light
your look is vampiric
and sweet is your bite

you're a hazmat masterpiece
a venom flowing in my veins
i want you to make me so dirty
let me lick your fabulous stains

says he likes his girls broken
i say i like my boys weak
our future’s are sealed
and the outlook is bleak
says she thinks i’m a nutjob
i say you’re driving me insane
but in this clean-cut world
we need these fabulous stains
Track Name: Cool Water
All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water
Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear, water

The shadows sway, a voice does say
You can only pray, for water
Cool water
But way up there, no-one hears a prayer
Or show us where there's water
Cool, clear, water

Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waiting there for you and me? Water
Cool, clear, water

My mind does shrink the more I think
About a drink of water
Cool water
Prepare my hearse, I’m leaving this earth
‘Less I quench my thirst, for water
Cool, clear, water

Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for you and me?
Cool, clear, water
Cool, clear, water
