Kissing Contest

KISSING CONTEST
By Cavedwellers
Lee (Truth)- Guitars and Vocals
Glen (glennny)- Bass and production
Sam (Prisoner)- Drums


When you’ve had enough of cruise ship food
Come on down to the kissing booth
We’ve breathed each other’s stale air
We’ll do what we dare
Don’t miss the kissing contest
As we bobble in the Bay
Don’t miss the kissing contest
No matter what the newsman say

We’ve been at sea for sixty days
Quarantined, it’s inhumane
Claustrophobia extreme
It’s a sorry scene
But don’t miss the kissing contest
As we bobble in the Bay
Don’t miss the kissing contest
No matter what the newsman say

Just how bad could it be
We’re all doomed eventually
Can’t afford life’s rent, you see
Let’s kiss torrentially

Day sixty-one and I’m still here
We disembark, see darker fears
Among the healthy and the well
We will never tell
Them about the kissing contest
As we bobbled in the Bay
We had no means of egress
Vacation wasn’t meant to be that way
They missed the kissing contest
And I’m not about to give away
The reason why we all will call in absent
And why we couldn’t wait just one more day

Phlebia - Kissing Contest

Once there was a time when the sun shined
but now we can't unwind or push rewind
you might define your frame of mind assign decline
confine the dying, anxiety plagues the mind
Oh no, uh oh, there goes the status quo
the first line of defense is blown
We hide ourselves away to preserve our numbers

COVID-19 is the name they've given it
WHO calling it a pandemic today.
Times lean.
Quarantine
Treat your friends as if they're diseased
Limit your contact with all parts of society

Back away from me, COVID-19.
Back away from me, SARS CoV-2.

Look around the towns in a lock down
Try to contain this virus
We're alone at home.
The sickness makes markets slow to a crawl.
So what do we do?
If only we knew.
Out of the blue.
Worse than the flu.
It could be you whose chest files up with the goo.
Go to the ICU.

Close down the schools for a a week
or two
or three
or four,
whatever it takes to attunuate the rise of the death rate
To put an end to this sure would be great.
That ship seems to have sailed
Like to fail
You could maybe bail out all the bunisess but you c'n

Back away from me, COVID-19
Back away from me, SARS CoV-2
Stay away from me
You seem well but you may be a carrier
Get the hell away!
Or maybe not.
Why is everyone so sullen?
Don't you know we're due for a culling?

I mean we've known that we're way over carrying capacity for what,
two? three generations now? Mortality of the young and old decreased dramatically
right around the time we figured out that we could hack the food production system with massive
phosphate and petrochemical inputs. Humanity was never meant to be this big,
and there's no fucking way we can remain this big.
And why not collapse now? Avoid the rush? Dying back now is better than dying later.
Let's get ahead of Malthus.
Let's have a tickle fight. Let's having a kissing contest. Let's have a snuggle party.
Let's dance all night, thousands of us, together in places all over the globe,
packed in enclosed spaces, breathing, sweating, touching,
Dancing for the end of the world as we know it
Overload the hospitals. The pain will be real.
But a better, healthier world will await the survivors.

Kissing Contest - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Pucker up buttercup
Times are strange oh yes they are
The shelves are empty in the land of plenty
Kinda wonder how we got this far

Rockin' in the free world with pandemic shiver
Shits Creek raging to a sweaty river

Strap it in Slim
We're on a ride to nowhere
Got a case of beans and the heebie jeebies
A pair of Ray Bans for my 1000 yard stare

Watching my TV don't know who's selling truths
Put colloidal silver in my vodka and vermouth

Ch:
Now I'm competing in a kissing contest
Never thought that I would end up here
Put the crown on the winner baby
They'll send you home on a gilded gurney
I'm making out in a kissing contest
Oh can't you wait to swap the spit of sickness
Line it up and lay on me baby
Winner take all, I'm going for the golden trophy

*cough* *cough*

Take a pill Phil
I got a whole stockpile of little helpers
Ain't seen nothing yet - is it us cheating death?
Probably should've listed to those Doomsday preppers

All I know is I got mine and the rest can hang
Ain't no shame - it's the American way

Chorus.

Yeah!

C'mon and kiss me, I'll fly your frisbee
Ain't no time for debate

Kiss me now
Kiss me, wow
Kiss me and how


Ain't no other, gives better pucker
Don't tell me no or I'll get irate

I got powers - time is now is
Let's win it all before it's too late

We will be given, a blue ribbon
'Cos my kissin' is first rate

We won the contest, kissing the longest
Gee it's swell and really great
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Kissing Contest - ShoehornTC

Survivor, big brother, bachelor, cops and kardashians
The dick from apprentice is now the effing president
Duck Dynasty ain’t reality just a bunch of wanna be famous
acting like their shameless, it’s all me me me
should be we we we (like the french)...

The crap they try to feed us
The junk they wanna sell us
It’s all a kissing contest, to better give us the virus.

Reality is not the talking heads or social media
It’s the guy on the second floor, the lady next door.
It’s the sleeper on the street the one that looks beat
you saw him last week and didn’t let him speak
you walked on by with your coffee so look cool at the job you hate
but you look great, great like america, rich like a billionaire
so you’re sad ‘cause you’re going… going nowhere!!

The lies the wanna tell us
The crimes they try to pin on us
It’s all a kissing contest, to better give us the virus.
The crap they try to feed us
The junk they wanna sell us
It’s all a kissing contest, to better give us the virus.

I'm not a afraid of what you think of me
I do not know
You can pick a cheek, kiss the first you see
Kiss me down below

Who can kiss my ass the best?
Who is better than the rest?
Who's gonna give up all their pride,
Set all their dignity to the side?
I own a mansion and fancy cars
Just like Clinton, I enjoy cigars
Who is willing to come back stage?
Don't forget you gotta prove your age.

You can pick a cheek, kiss the first you see
Kiss me down below

Kissing Contest

V1
Back in the 3rd and 4th grade
I had a friend name Suzie
We’d get so very bored
Seemed like class would never end

Then at last, the bell would ring
Out for recess, precious freedom
We would always play alone because
Well, no one really liked us

We didn’t care, our favorite game
Was to gross everyone out
We’d eat bugs, worms, and dirt
Give all the boys a hug

PC1
And then one day, I had a great idea
We could have ourselves a kissing contest
But instead of kissing all the boys
We’d kiss all of the girls instead

C1
Oh I’m gonna kiss more girls than you
I’m gonna kiss more girls than you
I’m gonna kiss more girls than you

I’m gonna chase them all around
Tackle them to the ground
Lay on them a great big smooch

V2
Before the start of the 5th grade
Suzie moved so far away
I was heartbroken
But I never forgot our games

Then fast forward eight years
Off to college and on my own
And who should walk into my dorm
But Suzie tall and grown

It was really great to see her again
Damn, she looked mighty fine
We hugged, cried, and caught up
Reminisced about old times

PC 2
Do you remember that game we played?
(I remember)
When we kissed every single girl?
(Every single one)
Well, I never really stopped kissing them
(Neither did I)
Oh, neither did you


C2
Oh I’m gonna kiss more girls than you
I’m gonna kiss more girls than you
I’m gonna kiss more girls than you

I’m gonna call them on the phone
Try to get them all alone
Lay on them a great big smooch
And now it seems to me the beautiful uncut hair of graves -Walt Whitman

Kissing Contest - Hot Pink Halo

***

You said you loved me
To the moon and back
As we laid underneath a
Blanket of stars
We never imagined that
I would be trapped
On that grey satellite
So far away

If kissing were a contest
You'd win it every time
You'd have so many cases
Stacked full of trophies
That they'd reach all the way up
To cloud nine
But if missing you were a contest
Then victory is mine

I said I loved you
Many moons ago
And I mean it more with
Each new day
You're the light of my life
You're everything I know
An old world love
In this new embrace

If kissing were a contest
You'd win it every time
You'd have so many cases
Stacked full of trophies
That they'd reach all the way up
To cloud nine
But if missing you were a contest
Then victory is mine

If kissing were a contest
You'd win it every time
You'd have so many cases
Stacked full of trophies
That they'd reach all the way up
To cloud nine
But if missing you were a contest
Then victory is mine
Devil’s got me Lindt! Devil’s got me Lindt!

Verse 1
She had a smile on her face
Like she just won a contest
Her gloss on my lips
A taste of what would come next

Pre-Chorus
No words need to be spoken
Our eyes wide open

Chorus
We could stand here until the end of time
Locked in an embrace
We could win the Kissing Contest
We could win the Kissing Contest

Verse 2
Welcome to the end of the ourselves
So close to perfection
Our lifetime seen in
The flush of her complexion

Pre-Chorus
No words need to be spoken
Our eyes wide open

Chorus
We could stand here until the end of time
Locked in an embrace
We could win the Kissing Contest
We could win the Kissing Contest

Bridge
Get used to being kissed this way
The feeling never goes away

Chorus
We could stand here until the end of time
Locked in an embrace
We could win the Kissing Contest
We could win the Kissing Contest
