Recorded by Rick Valentin at Studio Tedium, 1996. Originally released on the PIAPTK Lost Songs (1996) EP.


Talk to me not the cartoon that you created
Complicated, no one is that thin
Look around, there is no man behind the curtain
What's the problem? Who do you hate today?

You've been blinded, sided with the selfish centers
Hanging out with the marionettes
I'm always here if you need someone for target practice
Instead of firing point blank on yourself

What you see is what you get from me
Bullet proof

Everybody has a kink in their armor
It's OK, your secret's safe with me
And who cares what the simple simons say
I will get out of the way
