The Johnny Red Eyes Toronto, Ontario

Track Name: Red Eyes, White Collar
In my house and in my room, in an envelope in a drawer,
There's pieces of paper I'm in trouble for.
Maybe one day I'll get off my ass and go pay the fines,
But its really hard to do when you don't think its a crime.

Back in the store room at work its not hard to find,
People who share my same state of mind.
If the big boss walks out, we'll shuffle about and hide the joint,
but let me make this clear, let me make my point.

Nobody notices my red eyes.
Nobody notices my red eyes.
Nobody notices my red eyes.
Nobody notices my red eyes.

I get stopped by a cop, smoking a blunt;
And I'm feeling generous so I offer him some.
He gives me a ticket for possession,
I'll add it to my collection.

Nobody notices my red eyes.
Nobody notices my red eyes.
Nobody notices my red eyes.
Nobody notices my red eyes!

Lord know's, I'm not distressed, I'm addicted to feeling just fine.
Lord know's, I'm not distressed, I'm addicted to feeling just fine.
I'll add it to my collection.
I'll add it to my collection.
Maybe one day I'll remember to pay them.
Maybe one day I'll remember.
Maybe one day I'll remember.
Track Name: Cops are after my Crops
Piggies at the back door, piggies at the stairs
Piggies so close I see the way they stare.
With snouts at the door and hooves on the floor,
The plants are in the back but they're asking me for more.

The Cops are after my crops. (After my crops!)
The Cops are after my crops. (After my crops!)
They busted in a broke the locks. (Broke the locks!)
The Cops are after my crops.

With their pointy hats and their curly tails too,
Who's at the door is it the fucking boys in blue?
Let's kill 'im in the backyard and put his head on a stake,
One piggy dead for society's sake.

The Cops are after my crops. (After my crops!)
The Cops are after my crops. (After my crops!)
They busted in a broke the locks. (Broke the locks!)
The Cops are after my crops.

The Cops are after my crops. (After my crops!)
The Cops are after my crops. (After my crops!)
They busted in a broke the locks. (Broke the locks!)
The Cops are after my crops.
