Lyrics

God's Green Earth
Nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.
Nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.
There ain't nobody's going to talk about you. Ain't nobody can't do without you.
There ain't nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.

Nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.
There ain't nobody in the whole wide world is going to miss you when you're gone.
There ain't no way you're coming back in here. There ain't nobody's going to shed a tear.
There ain't nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.

Fear of crime - instrument of control:
If they frighten you enough you won't come out of your hole
Because of the crime wave that's infesting the area.
The Government wants to tell you things have never been scarier.
What is the crime? Who is the criminal?
The questions have a message and it isn't subliminal.
Right on the money, I spy the Slime:
They're set to make a bundle on account of all the fear of crime.

(Third verse, same as the first)

Nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.
Nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.
There ain't nobody's going to talk about you. Ain't nobody can't do without you.
There ain't nobody on God's green earth is going to miss you when you're gone.
When you're gone.

This Is Sumo
This inaugural disk is decidedly un-Butcheresque, with a keyboard-heavy attack of quasi-techno rhythms. Pat was known to dabble in reverb and noise, but the results were moody, melancholy textures, quite unlike the flash of This is Sumo.
