Track Name: Wraparound World
Inside out and outside in
Too far out and too far in
Rub some of that soul into your skin
We'll notify your next of kin

Wraparound word
Who can you trust?
Don't cry - take a little time - you're a wraparound girl
Got a film of a vision that you had in a dream
In a wraparound world what do you see?

Inside out and outside in
Too far out and too far in
Rub some of that soul into your skin
We'll notify your next of kin

Wraparound world finds out what's on your mind
Wraparound world's alright this time around
Some days I come in your wraparound world
A waiter and a lover and a diver for pearls

An heirloom jewel 'round your hair it weaves
A teardrop pool for those lovers who leave you
Be a seaside angel who waves and smiles
At suicide surfers -- come along for the ride
Your landlocked and sunblocked - you wish to be free
From an unfair situation -- you could wade into the sea
I won't stop you - I won't call out your name
My offer -- it just stands there
15 minutes of
Fame

Inside out and outside in
Too far out and too far in
Rub some of that soul into your skin
We'll notify your next of kin

Wraparound word
Who can you trust?
Don't cry - take a little time - you're a wraparound girl
Got a film of a vision that you had in a dream
In a wraparound world what do you see?

In a wraparound world
what do you see?

This world's running circles around you
You get tied up in a wraparound world


Run run your reality gone wrong
There's trouble still awaiting at the universe next door
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

Chorus:
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”

Chorus

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

Chorus
Track Name: R.U. Sirius About America?
We're gonna whip
Whip
America into shape
We're gonna whip
Whip
America into shape

R.U. Sirius about America?
If you are then stand by me
If you're politically correct
Oh what the heck
Pick up the phone!
You could be another PC clone

R.U. Sirius about America
If you are then take the dive
Give us cash or make a pledge
This country's standing on the ledge
And only those who jump will make it out alive

R.U. Sirius about America
If you are too than give him a hand
Tell him that you too have ideals that are high
Vote R.U. for the highest office in the land

When we were kids we learned about in school
All the things that presidents can do
Like never tell a lie - stand up in rowboats - even fly
Or throw a coin really really far
Now R.U. Sirius doesn't have to prove
That he can do these things -- He doesn't even have to move
He's the candidate for folks who like their living large
He even excepts your cash checks or charge

Charge America!

Ladies and gentlemen R.U. Sirius
