No Big Surprise - Nomeansno
Sex is philosophy, philosophy is sex
Sex Sex x is Politics, politics is Sex
The wheels are turning, everything is fine
Her mouth is open end every moan is mine
Another dark hole in a clear, blue eye
And when I look there, what do you think I find?
Something's happening here, but what it is ain't exactly clear
My temperature's beginning to rise, may I throw away my disguise?
It's not love that I bring to you, it's a weapon, a lie and a tool
And the fantasies that fill my mind, they're not tender and they're not kind
They're not kind, they're the kind, they're the kind
In the sunshine I pass all scrutiny
But when the night comes there is a change in me
For every locked door there is a secret key
And in every dark room there is a light to see
Turn it on, flip the switch, she's not a person, she's just a b_tch
And the only joy that comes to me is in the perfect execution of my cruelty
Let me tell you what I see when she is stretched out naked in front of me
I see who I am, and I'm afraid because it's not a man, it's not a man, not a man
It's a beast not a man
It was such a shame, I'd seen her around but I never know her name
He'd been in trouble from an early age, a problem child full of fear and rage
In the school yard at the back, a security camera caught this violent act
She'd come willing to him, she only wanted to he bis friend
He ripped away her shirt, he called her a whore, said that she was dirt
She was pleading for her lifa, she was screaming, "Why? Why? Why?"
He grabbed her by the hair, threw her down and kicked her there
She couldn't believe her eyes, es he reached in bis pants end pulled it out-It's a knife!
It's a knife! It's a knife! It's a knife!
Is that a cock or a knife?
Are you getting what you want? Are you getting what you see?
Is this the business of pornography?
I hauled my ass to hell and gone
put the boots to the dawn
The sky was empty and the stars were bright
But it snowed like December on a summer night
All that screaming and all those moans
Honey, don't it make you cry
lt wasn't very pretty and it wasn't real nice
But that was no big surprise
I saw your heart when I looked in your eyes
That's where the shadows lie
Stop your whining you son of a b_tch
I've got the bull by the horns, I've got my hand on the whip
All you showed me was a clever disguise
You thought I wasn't wise
Bot I saw your heart when I looked in your eyes
And that was no big surprise
All of your schemes and those well laid plans
Have come tumbling down
Nothing will be left of this ruin end death
You're out of money end you're out of breath
I'm lighter than air, I'm a cloud of smoke
You're f_cking finished end that's no joke
With a snap of my fingers, in the blink of an eye
That was no big surprise
Can you hear my prayer?
As it floats on high
Do you want to know why?
Like the fish in the deep blue see
Like an eagle in a clear blue sky
I've got no time to wonder why
I've got a gun in my pocket and a knife in my hand
I'm one hell of a man
I'm ten feet tall, I've lived a thousand years
I've got nothing to hope for and nothing to teer
I carved a path from here to there, end then I
Vanished into thin air
I took the big plunge and I won the big prize
But that was no big surprIse
