Flipper is a punk band formed in San Francisco, California in 1979, continuing in often erratic fashion until the mid-1990s, then reuniting in 2005. The band influenced a number of grunge, punk rock and noise rock bands. Their slowed-down, bass-driven, and heavily distorted style of punk is also considered a key forerunner to sludge metal and bands such as The Melvins. more »

Now what I want to know is how 
Your feelings show way deep down inside of 
you when you know your mind is twisted 
And untrue it seems so strange the range 
You claim to have to show when all your actions 
Take on a surrealistic threatening glow acting 
The way you do f*ck that well you know what 
Does it show what does it prove you're in some 
Groove workin through the stages now toward 
Something new but what does it show and what 
Do you know well it pays to know it pays to know 

Now in the time you spent so well figure yourself 
Out to tell did you ever wonder why some 
Things turned out to be such lies did you look 
Deep way within and figure out where lies the sin 
Could there be a clue left out overlooked and 
Thrown about I want to know what can you show 
One thing for certain it pays to know it pays to 
Know which way you're going yes it pays to know 
It pays to know set your sail in the direction 
The winds blowin ohh it pays to know what can 
You show and what does it prove
