Lyrics to Adolescents: Presumed Insolent (entire album)

BIG ROCK SHOCK
(Reflex/Root)
My Self-help guru
Jumped off of a bridge
With Static magnificence
I’m out on a ledge

I’m in shock
I’m in shock 
Big Rock Shock

I need to scream
A scream isn’t enough.
This scream comes from a place
We never wanted to be.

Life gives us so much
We forget how lucky we are
Until we’ve been robbed
Of the things that matter the most.

CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE SEE MONKEYS
(Reflex/Soto)
From the Cradle to the grave
We are Media slaves.
Labeled, packaged, standardized
Consumer Analyzed-
Poster billboard generation
Spoonfed annihilation.

Monkey see, monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey see, monkey do like I do
Monkey see, monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey see, monkey do like me

Staring out your tv eye
We embrace the lie.
Dancing with a lottery wife
An imitation of life.
Jersey Shore to the OC
It’s our reality. 

Staring out your tv eye
We embrace the lie.
Labeled, packaged, standardized
Consumer Analyzed-
We are Media slaves.


DAISY’S REVENGE
(Reflex/Soto)
There was a time I was unaware
I’d lock my gaze on everything and glare
For no other reason than my will to be free
There was no power higher than the power in me

No need to justify
Or tell the truth when you look them in the eye
It’s our future, we have the tools
Might be there game but we make the rules.

In measured steps I’d play for time
In metered texts I’m looking for a rhyme
These riddles never made sense.
If I can’t break down walls, I’ll jump the fence

DISSATISFACTION GUARANTEED
(Reflex/Soto)
Well this is a story about little boys
Degeneration built on structure and poise
On an island of broken toys

Dissatisfaction guaranteed
In the pool of Narcissus

In this place of servants and kings
Climb up the ladder you get more things
Pull the puppets by broken strings
Dissatisfaction guaranteed
In the pool of Narcissus

Kids play Zeus with crocodile smiles
Holding court; they hold it with style,
Top dogs spitting venom and bile.
I can play along with the helicopter moms,
The queen bees, the ding and the dong,
The wicked witches singinging along.

Dissatisfaction guaranteed
In the pool of Narcissus

And I can play the king and play it with glee,
Rattle cages of lollipop thieves;
Sierra Madre don’t mean nothing to me.
Hear the Echo, yeah here we go,
In the village where no one knows
Who will follow and who will lead.

FOREVER SUMMER
(Reflex/Soto)

A marketing dream
If we play like a team
The profit unreal

A win-win for all 
An atomic Mall
Beachfront appeal

I’ll make the pitch
Without a hitch
We’ll seal the deal.

Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Forever Summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Forever Summer

This land is gold 
Leave no lot unsold
Profits won’t cave

We bring glowing waves
Protest parades
To power slaves

People don’t care
When they aren’t aware
No buyer beware

S-a-n - Ono- f-r-e
We built your dream house next to the sea
S-a-n - Ono- f-r-e
Buy today and we’ll wave the closing fee

Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Forever Summer
Here comes the summer
Here comes the summer
Forever Summer

SNAGGLETOOTH AND NAIL
(Reflex/Soto)

Snaggletooth, tooth and nail-
Snaggletooth, tooth and nail-
Snaggletooth, tooth and nail-
Snaggletooth.

Vermin attack from the dark
Setting loose dogs- no bite, all bark.
We came back with a roar, 
They ran back to Hell
When we came through the door.

It took a village to screw
To screw our lives to fuck 
Like it was nothing new.
Treated us like we were a game
Try to play us like we were to blame

TRUTH or Snaggletooth?

They’d best keep this in mind
This isn’t over until the end of time
Heed this warning as proof
You can run, 
You can’t hide from the truth

TIC-TAC AT THE ALLIGATOR TREE
(Reflex/Soto)

There’s a place where trouble dwells
Between El Monte and Hell
Lots of vamps- lots of tramps
Below the Bible Belt.

We can laugh, joke, and play
Dance the day and night away.
Got a swamp beat you can’t deny
Tonight’s the night to let it fly
Tic-Tac at the Alligator Tree.

I talk to spirits, I talk to trees,
I talk to Ritter, I talk to D,
I talk to Lux, to Jeffrey Lee
I’d talk to you but you don’t matter to me

We can laugh, joke, and play
Dance the day and night away.
Got a swamp beat you can’t deny
Tonight’s the night to let it fly
Tic-Tac at the Alligator Tree.

We’ll Tic-Tac at the Alligator Tree
We’ll Tic-Tac at the Alligator Tree

I wan’t excitement, I want more,
A reputation you can’t ignore
To make a statement like never before
And Tic-Tac at the Alligator Tree.

I wan’t excitement, I want more,
A reputation you can’t ignore
To make a statement like never before
And Tic-Tac at the Alligator Tree.

THE ATHENA DECREE
(Reflex/Soto)
Push the button, then let it go.
Push the button, then let it go.

How long until I blow?
What’s the limit?
Well I don’t know.

Something boiling
You can’t see
An explosion inside of me.
I am more than you can see
Approximations
You won’t believe

Restitution
A state unknown
Retribution and broken bones

Push the button, then let it go.
Push the button, then let it go.

BROKEN WINDOW
(Reflex/Mia Brandenburg/Soto)

Tell me why people call these eyes
The window to the soul-
Yeah tell me 
Why I can’t read your eyes
Just tell me how-
Then tell me

How to act-
I can’t act that way,
How to look-
I can’t look that way,
How to speak-
I can’t speak that way.
To look away, just look away

Tell me why I’m not listening
I’ve had enough
Heard enough,
Yeah tell me 
Why I need to see your eyes
That window’s shut
I’ve had enough
Then tell me
Don’t look away.

Broken- broken
Broken Window

Don’t Look Away

Tell me why I knew it all along
It felt so wrong
Felt so wrong.
And tell me why
I sense the vice, the apathy
Then tell me
Don’t look away

IN THIS TOWN EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL
(Reflex/Mia Brandenburg/Soto)
In this town everything is wonderful 
In this town everything is wonderful
In this town everything is wonderful
In this Goddamn town.

We moved to town- 
The Mrs. and me
To settle down 
On a quiet street.
We had tall trees,
Butterflies, bumblebees.
This town has everything you need.

So we set up house
We planted seeds.
When they came up, 
We pulled the weeds.
There’s a church on every street
Birkenstocks for your feet-
This town has everything you need.

In this town everything is wonderful 
In this town everything is wonderful
In this town everything is wonderful
In this Goddamn town.

They have pitchforks at the park
There’s a curfew when it’s dark-
This town has everything you need.

They have a school patrolled by rats
They won’t put up with this or that.
They stamp out little boys
When they make too much noise-
This town has everything you need.

In this town everything is wonderful 
In this town everything is wonderful
In this town everything is wonderful
In this town everything is wonderful 
In this town everything is wonderful
In this town everything is wonderful
In this Goddamn town.

RIPTIDE
(Reflex/Soto)

Living on the outside
On the outside looking in
Caught in a struggle-
A struggle you can’t win.
Head above the water
On the outside looking in
Head above the water
It’s about to begin,

Riptide
No pointing in fighting
We’re taking a ride.
Riptide
No pointing in fighting
We’re taking a ride.

Want to trust in someone
No one left to trust.
No message, No messanger
Rising up from the dust.
No absolution
Nothing to forgive
No need to apologize
For the life that you live.

Riptide
No pointing in fighting
We’re taking a ride.
Riptide
No pointing in fighting
We’re taking a ride.

PRESUMED INSOLENT
(Reflex/Mia Brandenburg/Soto)

Told me where to meet
To keep me off the street
That’s no plan for me,
That is no place to be.
Presumed insolent.

Said I’d never learn
Kicked me to the curb.
That’s no plan for me,
That is no place to be.
Presumed insolent.

Told me what to think.
I’m not a machine.
That’s no plan for me,
That is no place to be.
Presumed insolent.

300 Cranes
(Reflex/Soto)

It was a different time
Another life it seemed 
He’d pay the price
For broken schemes and broken dreams
A man-child on the road of the damned.

I feel kind of empty
I feel kind of down.
I got to get me right.
300 cranes.
300 cranes.
300 cranes.
Build them up and tear them down
Again.

I watched him fold into the night
One page at a time.
His eyes were glazed
His fingers amazed
On the edge of a dime.

I feel kind of empty
I feel kind of down.
I got to get me right.
300 cranes.
300 cranes.
300 cranes.
Build them up and tear them down
Again.

He stopped, paused, and looked around
Like it was meant to be.
“If I could do it tonight, 
I could set them free.”

I feel kind of empty
I feel kind of down.
I got to get me right.
300 cranes.

Build them up, 
Tear them down again.

Troy Brandenburg.  (1964-2001)
