You haven’t used you last straight razor
You’re saving it for a special occasion
You fully charged your big space laser
You take your time while we’re anticipating
You’re set to go in any sized theater
One or the world, it just doesn’t matter
Cause they’ll all break, you power lifter
Just sound all clear when it’s all over

And I can always treat you well
And you won’t hear the kiss and tell
Just keep coming on strong
And I can always treat you well
And you won’t hear the kiss and tell
Just keep coming on strong

Perimeter secure and steady
They get a sec when you aren’t awake yet
Best prepared, stand the ready
And with this I know the outcome is set
Go give ‘em hell, you are a contender
Cash money down if I was a bettor
So move the world, spin it faster
I know you’re a real go-getter

And I can always treat you well
And you won’t hear the kiss and tell
Just keep coming on strong
And I can always treat you well
And you won’t hear the kiss and tell
Just keep coming on

You feel the light
Yes I believe
That you will run
It takes fifteen
You’re up against
Inside all right
There is a hole
Heads roll tonight
Laugh in the dark
You’ll gravitate
Oh heaven help
There’re worlds to break
You feel the light
Yes I believe
That you will run
For just fifteen
You’re up against
Inside all right
Cause I know
I know you’re a real go-getter

And I can always treat you well
And you won’t hear the kiss and tell
Just keep coming on strong
And I can always treat you well
And you won’t hear the kiss and tell
Just keep coming on strong

    General CommentI just wanted to point out that the lyrics in the bridge are from every song on the album. It's cool because "Straight Razor" is the very first song on the CD and sets you up for the rest of it--sort of like a teaser. I don't know where one of the lines comes from, though.

    "You feel the light" - Light
    "Yes, I believe" - Believe
    "That you will run" - Destination
    "It takes fifteen" - 00:15:00
    "You're up against" - Up
    "Inside, all right" - Inside
    "There is a hole" - ?????
    "Heads roll, tonight" - Herrod's Daughter
    "Laugh in the dark" - Laughing/Gravitate
    "You'll gravitate" - Gravitate
    "Oh, heaven help" - Rollers
    "There're worlds to break" - Straight Razor

    I loved singing along to this part because of its quick randomness, but now that I realize that it's not at all random it becomes much more special to me. It makes me truly appreciate Chomsky on a higher level.
