Billy's got a chemical
It keeps his mind under control
He doesn't know that it exists
He doesn't know he was born with it

Every thought he's ever had
Was a chemical imbalance
All the chemicals in his head
Help him keep his balance

Something seeped into the backyard
Found its way into our home
Isolate it, throw it out
Finds its way back on it's own

Polystyrene HFC
Neurotoxin MSG
There's no water left to drink
There's no time for me to think

Toxic waste with a human face
Every time I breathe I start to shake
There's no water left to drink
There's no time for me to think



from Sub Pop Single, released October 1, 1990
