about

Chemical Alley Discharge is a tribute to Houston, for better or worse. Tracks like Starve, Dioxin Pit, and Blastrodome deal with social and environmental issues local to the area. Other tracks target particularly infamous individuals such as Nancy Grace, Ted Nugent, and Fred Phelps (junior or senior, take your pick). In the time it took you to read this description, you could have listened to half the album.

Track Name: Blastrodome
What to do with this old Astrodome?
Hey, I know, let's have a vote
Ask me in person, I'm so gung-ho
But when I'm in the booth, the thing's gotta go

It ain't no work of art, let's just rip it all apart

BLASTRODOME

It ain't makin' money
I'm very sorry, honey
No sense of history
Blow it to smithereens

And take me out to the
BLASTING ZONE
Disassembling the dome
Scrape it and pave it for parking space
I don't care if it's a slap in the face and we'll
Root, root, root for Reliant
And Matthew McConaughey, and we'll
Hope the Astros don't suck quite so much
Someday

Track Name: Nancy Grace
Blonde haired, beautiful, on the screen
Just like Ann Coulter, you're loud and mean
You talk about the stories that don't affect me
Gotta boost the ratings for the corporate maching, 'cause

Nancy Grace (you're a cunt)
Nancy Grace (you're a cunt)
Nancy Grace (you're a cunt)
I hope you're having lots of fun

You're angry because your husband was killed
Now I'm the one who's footing the bill
You blame anyone who doesn't think like you
But I was not the one who set him free from you, because

Nancy Grace (you're a cunt)
Nancy Grace (you're a cunt)
Nancy Grace (you're a cunt)
I hope you're having lots of fun

Track Name: Burn the Confederate Flag
"My pickup truck has metal nuts that dangle as I go, I've
got the stars and bars as stickers on my rear window, My
bigotry is on my sleeve but I can do no wrong, my truck nuts keep me..."

Mine eyes have seen the hatred
Disguised under something called southern pride, Sore loser
dog whistle strategies, Star spangled swastika bearers wink their eyes (say)

Burn the confederate (burn the confederate)
Burn the confederate (burn the confederate)
Burn the confederate (burn the confederate)
Burn the confederate flag

You say that it's your heritage
Your great great grand pappy fought and died, do you know
How many forefathers you have?
They probably fought each other on both sides, so

Burn the confederate (burn the confederate)
Burn the confederate (burn the confederate)
Burn the confederate (burn the confederate)
Burn the confederate flag

"I've been indoctrinated into white supremacy
I never will admit that I'm in favor of slav'ry
How dare you say I'm racist, how can heritage be wrong?
My truck nuts keep me strong"

You lost get over it
Burn the confederate flag
Track Name: Ted Nugent is a Pussy
Jimmy Hendrix was a man
Got sent to Vietnam
Jumped from a plane with a parachute
While Ted Nugent took a poot

Ted Nugent is a pussy
Ted Nugent is a pussy

Ted Nugent shit his pants
To dodge the draft to Vietnam
Ted Nugent shit his pants
To dodge the draft to Vietnam

Ted Nugent is a pussy
Ted Nugent is a pussy
Ted Nugent is a pussy chicken shit, chicken hawk, goat fuckin' twat
Track Name: Dioxin Pit
All our lives they've said the bay was dirty
Long before my time, I'm pushing thirty
Forgotten toxic waste pits rediscovered
Guilty parties come to light half a century later in court they fight

I grew up in humble Highlands, Texas where the San Jacinto River bends
There's a chain link fence with warning signs,
saying you can't fish here any time

This all went down when my dad was born
Years pass and he would be working for'em

Dioxin pit, dioxin pit
Keep back no swimming and don't eat the fish
Dioxin pit, dioxin pit
They dump toxic waste and then hope we'll forget

Corporate acquisitions blur the crime
Dumping this was legal at the time
The businessmen now they just want to fill it
They say it's too expensive to remove it

Names may change but the deed remains the same
You buy the company, you buy the blame

Dioxin pit, dioxin pit
Keep back no swimming and don't eat the fish
Dioxin pit, dioxin pit
Our eyes are open we'll never forget

Our eyes are open to dioxin pit
Track Name: Drop Dead Fred
Sinners, in the hands of an angry mob
You picket soldiers' funerals like it's your job

Dead
Drop dead
Drop dead Fred
(4x)

Every member of your congregation
Is connected to you through blood relation (brain-dead hicks)

Dead
Drop dead
Drop dead Fred
(4x)

Fred
Phelps
Fred
Phelps

Westboro Baptist Church
In all the USA there's nothing worse
You beat your children and wife
But before this song was finished you had already lost your life

But I think there's another Fred
Who believed every fucked up thing you said

Dead
Drop dead
Drop dead Fred

Track Name: Prochoiceprogay

Track Name: Starve
Let's regulate charity
Let's codify generosity
Let's make it criminal
To feed the hungry poor

This slope may be slippery
But it's all for "safety"
Wait 'til Anise Parker
Comes to your dinner party

You don't have a permit for that!

Starve; starve ; starve; starve them to death

Some just want to feed the needy
For the mayor that's just too easy
If we make it just so hard
They'll go elsewhere to starve

She says no, no-no, no, no, no-no-no-no..... Let 'em starve to death

Starve; starve ; starve; starve them to death
Track Name: Pipeliner
They said,

Drill, baby drill
Go to those oil fields and
Drill, baby drill
Off the coastline
Drill, baby drill
Frack them tar sands
Drill, baby drill

If you need money well you're in luck
Just get a welding machine and a big ole truck
It's tall, it's wide, it takes up space
Drive around with a douchey look on your face

Stickers on the back explain what I do
If my welding machine didn't give you a clue
I got 99 problems but money ain't one
You better make way when the job is done, 'cause I'm a

Pipeliner, pipeliner, I ain't no 9 to 5er
Two weeks home then I'll be gone
Gonna get my weldin on

My job comes with an attitude
And less education but more money than you
I got a wife and some kids that I never see
But when I'm home they better stay the hell away from me

Cuz I'm a big strong man with a big strong plan, I'm gonna
help my boss man rape the land, yeah I'm a Man and I am what I am and as long as I'm making big money I don't give a damn, cuz I'm a

Pipeliner, pipeliner, I ain't no 9 to 5er
Spend my time hiding out on the phone, six weeks away then I'll come home, 'cause I'm a

Pipeliner, pipeliner, I laugh at 9 to 5ers
All y'all wish y'all could be me, welding metal on a six figure salary, well

When I roll up in my pickup truck
You're gonna know that I don't give a fuck, 'cause I'm a

[Guitar solo]

Pipeliner, pipeliner, I ain't no 9 to 5er, I'm a
Pipeliner, pipeliner..................................I'm a

Drill baby drill
