Are You You 01:42
Are you you Or are you something else Something different Something strange to me You're not you I feel it deep inside I thought I knew you What did I know Where'd that come from Not of my world Now you're everywhere Trying to take over Or maybe it's just me Am I losing it Don't do that to me I can see through you Now I'm on the run At least I think I'm safe Stay away stay away stay away stay away stay away
There's that kid That kid's still here Picking his nose Wiping it on his clothes Playing with his shit Rolling around in it Believing in Santa Claus Oblivious to the cost Lost in a dream Always about to scream Picking a fight Cause he's gotta be right Gonna tell on you Nothin' to do Making a face Losing the race Yankin' on dat ding Now I'm gonna sing Gooey inside Till realizing you lied Waving bye bye Never understanding why Hanging his head Wishing he was dead Trying to please While crawling on his knees
Franksgiving 01:01
Franksgiving! We're glad Frank's alive Frank's glad we're alive But then you wouldn't even be hearing this If you weren't alive! Franksgiving! It's great to be alive Or maybe it sucks to be alive But you wouldn't even have an opinion If you weren't alive Franksgiving! Nobody knows What it's like to be dead Cause they only ones who could tell us Are too freakin' dead Franksgiving! You're supposed to say nice Things about the dead But you can say nice things about Frank Even though he's not dead Franksgiving! So happy Franksgiving To all who are alive To those not alive Well sorry, but WE are! Franksgiving! Franksgiving! Franksgiving! Franksgiving!
Homicidal Me 01:33
I'm not good enough You're not good enough We're not good enough You're always making wa I'm always picking fights I always seem to shoot off You're always dropping bombs I always break agreements You always sneak attack I keep pushing buttons You tie me up in knots My morals have no zipper Your prisons are corrupt Your grievance is eternal I will not hear your case We break up into pieces There's trouble every day I'm always making war You're always picking fights Not good enough....
I'm a big baby for your love Just a big baby for your love Wanna have all of your love Just gotta have your love Don't take away your love Oh give me back your love! I'm a big baby for your love Wanna suck in all of your love Gonna cry without your love Gonna die without your love Gonna lie down on the floor without your love Oh give me that tit of your love! There's no figuring out this love It makes no sense this love I'm a sick dick for your love Don't understand this love Just know I gotta have your love Cause I'm a big baby for your love I'm a big baby for your love A big fat baby for your love Don't give me candy just give me your love Wanna get wrapped up in your love Can't think of anything but your love Gonna scream like a baby for your love I'm a screaming baby for your love Etc.

Little Fyodor Denver, Colorado

Little Fyodor was hatched in 1981 when punk songs of alienation began to pour out of him. After helping Walls Of Genius create 30 homemade cassettes in the 80's, he went solo to focus on his personal songs and ravings. Pithy Romantic Ballads is his 7th release of new, original material on vinyl or CD, not counting live and greatest hits collections and a tribute to him recorded by other artists. ... more
