Track Name: SLT - I Should've Been A Guru by SLT
I should've been a guru
Young girls for the pickings
Followers wash my asshole
And grown men weep at my face

I think I could've made a go
Smile always and act like I know
The perfect secrets of the cosmic wow
But it's too late to be a guru now

I should've been a guru
Talk shows with Larry King
White robes in a limousine
A long beard and a big ring

I know I could've been at peace
A happy face and perfect teeth
Free eats off the sacred cow
But it's too late to be a guru now

I should've been a guru
Sitting still up on a hill
No stress no mess
No sins to confess

No action no friction
Never watched Pulp Fiction
Just laugh while the people bow
But it's too late to be a guru now

I should've been a guru
Track Name: Everybody Must Get Rehab
Everybody must take their shoes off at the airport
Everybody must plug their car in at the carport
Everybody still loves Britney when her dress's short
Everybody has to have a quick and snarky retort
But things here aren't really all that bad
Since everybody must get rehab

They stone you when you don't wear your chador
They stone you and they call you a whore
They stone you in Iraq and in Iran
They stone you and then they cut off your hand
But here things aren't really quite as bad
Still everybody must get rehab

Everybody must get their free botox injection
Everybody must be available for inspection
Everybody must get a way rad looking cell phone
Everybody must pay back the interest on that home loan
But I guess things aren't quite so bad
Still everybody must get rehab

They stone you when your homeless and your poor
They stone you when you can't say who your for
They stone you like they stoned Tupac Shakur
They even stone you when you close the white house door
But I guess things aren't quite so bad
Still everybody must get rehab
Track Name: I Politician
I’ve got a little think tank
I call it home
I ain’t too highly paid though
Just flesh and bone
I’ll put a little thingie out
On video cassette
And hope the Minister of Propaganda
Don’t get too upset

Still it all comes though
The United Matrix of America
Pagan rhythms out of Africa
Pagan shipments out of Kathmandu
From the Aztecs to the Ming
Genetic carnival on wings

We’ve got a little freak show
We call it “The Hunchback Squeaks”
And then I politician
I get on up and I speaks
“I got a lotta rage” he cries
“And lots of irony”
You’re baboons in a cage” he lies
“I’m going to set you free”


Gotta get back to L.A. now
Got a media jones
Talking with the network boys
and taking out more loans
I get 3 minutes on NBC
Attack the ruling class
I've got 4 friends at NASA now
If I have to move my ass
