TEN

1) ONCE

I admit it...what's to say...yeah...
I'll relive it...without pain...mmm...
Backstreet lover on the side of the road
I got a bomb in my temple that is gonna explode
I got a sixteen gauge buried under my clothes, I pray...
Once upon a time I could control myself
Ooh, once upon a time I could lose myself, yeah...

Oh, try and mimic what's insane...ooh, yeah...
I am in it...where do I stand?
Oh, Indian summer and I hate the heat
I got a backstreet lover on the passenger seat
I got my hand in my pocket, so determined, discreet...I pray...
Once upon a time I could control myself
Ooh, once upon a time I could lose myself, yeah, yeah...

You think I got my eyes closed
But I'm lookin' at you the whole fuckin' time...

Ooh, once upon a time I could control myself, yeah...
Once upon a time I could lose myself, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Once, upon a time I could love myself, yeah...
Once upon a time I could love you, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Once (4x)
Yeah...once, once...yeah, yeah...
Yeah...yeah, yeah...yeah, yeah...oww...


2) EVEN FLOW

Freezin', rests his head on a pillow made of concrete, again
Oh, Feelin' maybe he'll see a little better set a days, ooh yeah
Oh, hand out, faces that he sees time again ain't that familiar, ooh yeah
Oh, dark grin, he can't help, when he's happy looks insane, oh yeah

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away, yeah...ooh...
Oh, someday yet, he'll begin his life again...life again...life again...

Kneelin', looking through the paper though he doesn't know to read, ooh yeah
Oh, prayin', now to something that has never showed him anything
Oh, feelin', understands the weather of the winters on its way
Oh, ceilings, few and far between all the legal halls of shame, yeah...

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away, yeah...
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again
Oh, whispering hands, gently lead, lead him away...him away, him away...
Yeah! Woo...ah yeah...fuck it up...

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away...
Ooh, someday yet, he'll begin his life again, yeah
Oh, whispering hands, gently lead, lead him away...him away...him away...
Yeah! Woo...uh huh...yeah, yeah, mommy, mommy...


3) ALIVE

Son, she said, have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy was nothin' but a...
While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin', sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked...

Oh I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey...oh...

Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room
She said I'm ready...for you
I can't remember anything to this very day
'Cept the look, the look...
Oh, you know where, now I can't see, I just stare...

I, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Hey I, boy, I'm still alive
Hey I, I, I, I'm still alive, yeah
Ooh yeah...yeah yeah yeah...oh...oh...

Is something wrong, she said
Well of course there is
You're still alive, she said
Oh, and do I deserve to be
Is that the question
And if so...if so...who answers...who answers...

I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Yeah I, ooh, I'm still alive
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


4) WHY GO

She scratches a letter into a wall made of stone
Maybe someday another child won't feel as alone as she does
It's been two years, and counting, since they put her in this place
She's been diagnosed by some stupid fuck, and mommy agrees, yeah...
Whoa...yeah...hey yeah yeah...
Why go home... (3x)

She seems to be stronger, but what they want her to be is weak
She could play pretend, she could join the game, boy
She could be another clone...ooh...whoa...ah yeah...

Ooh...
Why go home? (4x)
What you taught me...put me here...don't come visit...mother...
Sting me...

Whoa...ooh...
Why go home? (4x)
What you taught me...put me here...don't come visit...mother, mother, yeah...
Why go home? (7x)
Whoa...


5) BLACK

Hey...oooh...
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything?
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can, drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything?
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...
All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all that I'll be...yeah...

Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...
I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine


6) JEREMY

At home, drawing pictures of mountain tops with him on top
Lemin yellow sun, arms raised in a V
And the dead lay in pools of maroon below
Daddy didn't give attention
Oh, to the fact that mommy didn't care
King Jeremy the wicked...oh, ruled his world...
Jeremy spoke in class today... (2x)

Clearly I remember pickin' on the boy
Seemed a harmless little fuck
Ooh, but we unleashed a lion...
Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess lady's breast...
How can I forget?
And he hit me with a surprise left
My jaw left hurtin'...ooh, dropped wide open
Just like the day...oh, like the day I heard

Daddy didn't give affection, no...
And the boy was something that mommy wouldn't wear
King Jeremy the wicked...oh, ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today... (3x)
Woo... (14x)
Try to forget this...try to forget this...
Try to erase this...try to erase this...
From the blackboard...

Jeremy spoke in class today... (2x)
Jeremy spoke in, spoke in... (2x)
Jeremy spoke in class today...
Woo... (29x)
Woooooohhh...spoke in, spoke in...
Woooooohhh...uh huh, uh huh...


7) OCEANS

Hold on to the thread
The currents will shift
Glide me towards...
You know something's left
And we're all allowed
To dream of the next
Oh, ohh the next, time we touch...

Oooh... (4x)

You don't have to stray
Tho oceans away
Waves roll in my thoughts
Hold tight the ring...
The sea will rise...
Please stand by the shore...
Oh, oh, oh, I will be...
I will be there once more...

Oooh... (4x)
Uh huh, oh yeah... (2x)


8) PORCH

What the fuck is this world
Running to, you didn't
Leave a message, at least I
Coulda' learned your voice one last time
Daily minefield, this could
Be my time, 'bout you?
Would you hit me? (2x)
Oh oh oh...oh whoa whoa...ow...

All the bills go by, and
Initiatives are taken up
By the middle, there ain't gonna be any middle any more
And the cross I'm bearing home
Ain't indicative of my place
Left the porch (2x)
Oh oh oh...
Hear my name, take a good look
This could be the day
Hold my hand, walk beside me
I just need to say...

Hear my name, take a good look
This could be the day
Hold my hand, lie beside me
I just need to say
I could not take a-just one day
I know, when I would not ever touch you
Hold you...feel you...ever hold...never again...
Yeah... (12x)


9) GARDEN

She don't wander in...don't wander in here, she...
She don't wander in here...don't wander in here...

The direction of the eye, so misleading
The defection of the soul, nauseously quick
I don't question, our existence
I just question, our modern needs

She don't wander in...don't wander in here, she...
She don't wander in here...

I will walk...with my hands bound
I will walk...with my face blood
I will walk...with my shadow flag
Into your garden, garden of stone...yeah...

After all is done, and we're still alone
I won't be taken, yet I'll go...with my hands bound
I will walk...with my face blood
I will walk...with my shadow flag
Into your garden, garden of stone

I don't show...I don't share...
I don't need, yeah...what you have to give...

Oooh, I will walk...with my hands bound
I will walk...with my face blood
I will walk...with my shadow flag
Into your garden, garden...oh...

I will walk with my hands bound
I will walk into your garden, garden of stone...

I don't know...I don't care...
I don't need you for me to live...yeah, yeah, yeah, oh...
Uh huh huh... (8x)


10) DEEP

On the edge, windowsill
Ponders his maker, ponders his will
To the street below, he just ain't nothin'
But he's got a great view, and he sinks the needle deep, yeah...
Whoa, can't touch the bottom
In too deep, yeah...oh, can't touch the bottom

Oh, on the edge of a know-nothin' town
Feelin' quite superior, the aged come
To the sky above he just ain't nothin'
But he's got a great view, and he sinks a burning knife deep, yeah...
Ooh, can't touch the bottom
In too deep, yeah...uh huh, can't touch the bottom
In too deep...
Ohhh...Ohhh...

Ow...
On the edge of a Christmas clean love
Young virgin from heaven...visiting Hell
To the man above her, she just ain't nothin'
And she doesn't like the view
She doesn't like the view (2x)
But he sinks himself deep

Oh, can't touch the bottom
In too deep, yeah...oh, can't touch the bottom
Can't touch the bottom
Deep, yeah...
Oh, yeah, the bottom, yeah... (6x)
Ohh...


11) RELEASE

Father...ooh...oh...oh...
I see the world, feel the chill
Which way to go, windowsill
I see the world's on a rocking horse of time
I see the verse in the rain
Ohh...ohh...ohh...ohh...

Oh, dear dad, can you see me now
I am myself, like you somehow
I'll ride the wave where it takes me
I'll hold the pain...Release me...
Ohh...ohh...ohh...ohh...

Oh, dear dad, can you see me now
I am myself, like you somehow
I'll wait up in the dark for you to speak to me
I'll open up...Release me...
Release me (3x)
Ohh...ohh...ohh...ohh...

Vs

Vs
1) GO

Oh, please don't go out on me, don't go out on me now
Never acted up before, don't go on me now
I swear I never took it for granted, just thought of it now
Suppose I abused you, just passing it on
Go...fuck...

Once fastened, servile, now your getting sharp
Moving oh so swiftly, with such disarm
I pulled the covers over him, shoulda' pulled the alarm
Turned to my nemesis, a fool, not a fucking god
No...time...suck...my...Please...
Don't go on me (4x)
Please...oh...

Suck...blood...touch...please, tunnel vision...tuck...time...see...
Please, please, please...
Don't go on me (4x)

3) DAUGHTER

You guys ready...

Alone...listless...breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
Young girl...violins...center of her own attention
The, mother reads aloud, child, tries to understand it
Tries to make her proud

The shades go down, it's in her head
Painted room...can't deny there's something wrong...

Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me...

She holds the hand that holds her down
She will...rise above...ooh...oh...

Don't call me daughter, not fit to }
The picture kept will remind me } (2x)
Don't call me daughter, not fit to be }
The picture kept will remind me }
Don't call me...

The shades go down (2x)
The shades go, go, go...


4) GLORIFIED G

Got a gun, fact I got two
That's O.K. man, cuz I love god
Glorified version of a pellet gun
Feels so manly, when armed
Glorified version of a pellet gun (4x)

Double think, dumb is strength
Never shot at a living thing
Glorified version of a pellet gun
Feels so manly, when armed
Glorified version of a pellet gun (3x)
Glorified version of a...

Kindred to be an American...
Life comes...I can feel your heart...
Ooh...life comes...I can feel your heart through your neck...
Life comes...I can feel your heart through your neck...
Like some...I can steal your heart from your neck...

Glorified...glorified...


5) DISSIDENT

She nursed him there, ooh, over a night
I wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay
What to say...what to say
But soon she was down, soon he was low
At a quarter past...a holy no...
She had to turn around

When she couldn't hold, oh...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here

And to this day, she's glided on
Always home but so far away
Like a word misplaced
Nothing said, what a waste
When she had contact...with the conflict...
There was meaning, but she sold him to the state
She had to turn around

When she couldn't hold...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here, oh...oh...oh...

She gave him away when she couldn't hold...no...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here, oh...
Couldn't hold on...she couldn't hold...no...she folded...
A dissident is here
Escape is never the safest place, oh...
A dissident is here


6) W.M.A.

He won the lottery when he was born
Took his mothers white breast to his tongue
Trained like dogs, color and smell
Walks by me to get to him
Police man (2x)

He won the lottery by being born
Big hand slapped a white male 'merican
Do no wrong, so clean cut...
Dirty his hands, it comes right off
Police man (2x)
Police stopped my brother again (3x)
Police man (2x)

Jesus greets me...looks just like me...

Do no wrong, so clean cut
Dirty his hands, it comes right off
Police man (3x)
Police stopped my brother again (3x)
Police man (2x)

Police stopped my brother again (3x)
Police man (3X)

All my pieces set me free...human devices set me free...
All my pieces set me free... (2x) } (2x)
Humam devices set me free...


7) BLOOD

Spin me round, roll me over, fuckin' circus
Stab it down, one way needle, pulled so slowly
Drains and spills, soaks the pages, fills their sponges
It's my blood (2x)

Paint Ed big...Turn Ed into...One of his enemies...
It's my blood (3x)

Stab it down, fill the pages, suck my life out
Maker of my enemies...
Take...my...
Fuck...fuck...fuck...fuck...fuck...fuck...


8) REARVIEWMIRROR

I took a drive today
Time to emancipate
I guess it was the beatings made me wise
But I'm not about to give thanks, or apologize
I couldn't breathe, holdin' me down
Hand on my face, pushed to the ground
Enmity gaged, united by fear
Forced to endure what I could not forgive...

I seem to look away
Wounds in the mirror waved
It wasn't my surface most defiled
Head at your feet, fool to your crown
Fist on my plate, swallowed it down
Enmity gaged, united by fear
Tried to endure what I could not forgive

Saw things (4x)
Clearer (2x)
Once you, were in my...Rearview mirror...

I gather speed from you fucking with me
Once and for all I'm far away
I hardly believe, finally the shades...are raised...hey...

Saw things so much clearer }
Once you, once you... } (3x)
Rearview mirror }

Saw things so much clearer
Once you...oh yeah...


9) RATS

They don't eat, don't sleep
They don't feed, they don't seethe
Bare their gums when they moan and squeak
Lick the dirt off a larger one's feet
They don't push, don't crowd
Congregate until they're much too loud
Fuck to procreate till they are dead
Drink the blood of their so called best friend

They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
Don't pack themselves together and run as one
Don't shit where they're not supposed to
Don't take what's not theirs, they don't compare

They don't scam, don't fight
Don't oppress an equals given rights
Starve the poor so they can be well fed
Line their holes with the dead ones bread

They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way }
Don't pack themselves together and run as one } (2x)
Don't shit where they're not supposed to }
Don't take what's not theirs, they don't compare... }

Rats...They don't compare (2x)
Ben, the two of us need look no more (5X)


10) ELDERLY WOMAN BEHIND THE COUNTER IN A SMALL TOWN

I seem to recognize your face
Haunting, familiar, yet I can't seem to place it
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
Lifetimes are catching up with me
All these changes taking place, I wish I'd seen the place
But no one's ever taken me
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... (2x)

I swear I recognize your breath
Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising
Me you wouldn't recall, for I'm not my former
It's hard when you're stuck upon the shelf
I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate
Perhaps that's what no one wants to see
I just want to scream...hello...
My god its been so long, never dreamed you'd return
But now here you are, and here I am
Hearts and thoughts they fade...away...

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... (2x)
Hearts and thoughts they fade...away...
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... (3x)
Hearts and thoughts they fade...


11) LEASH

Troubled souls unite, we got ourselves tonight, oh...
I am fuel, you are friends, we got the means to make amends
I am lost, I'm no guide, but I'm by your side
I am right by your side, yeah...

Young lover I stand
It was their idea, I proved to be a man
Take my fucking hand
It was their idea, I proved to be a man
Will myself to find a home, a home within myself
We will find a way, we will find our place...

Drop the leash, drop the leash... } (3x)
Get outta' my fuckin' face }

Drop the leash, we are young (2x)
Oh, get outta' my fuckin' face...
Drop the leash, drop the leash...
Get outta' my, my...

Delight, delight, delight in our youth...oww...
Get outta' my fuckin' face...


12) INDIFFERENCE

I will light the match this mornin', so I won't be alone
Watch as she lies silent, for soon night will be gone
Oh, I will stand arms outstretched, pretend I'm free to roam
Oh, I will make my way, through, one more day in Hell...
How much difference does it make
How much difference does it make, yeah...

I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
Oh, I'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
Oh, I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
Hey, I won't change direction, and I won't change my mind
How much difference does it make
Mmm, how much difference does it make...how much difference...

I'll swallow poison, until I grow immune
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
How much difference (2x)
How much difference does it make (2x)

1) LAST EXIT

Lives opened and trashed..."Look ma, watch me crash"...
No time to question...why'd nothing last...
Grasp and hold on...hold tight and fast...
Soon be over...and I will relent...

Let the ocean swell, dissolve 'way my past
Three days, and maybe longer, won't even know I've left

Under your tongue...I'm like a tab...
I will give you what...you're not s'posed to have...
Under my breath...I swear by sin...
For better or for worse...a best we began...

Let the sun climb, oh, burn 'way my mask
Three days, and maybe longer, shed my skin at last...shed...shed...

Let the sun shine, burn 'way my mask
Three days, and maybe longer, won't ever find me here

Let the ocean dissolve 'way my past
Four days, and not much longer...

Let my spirit pass...
Ooh...
This is, this is... (3x)
My.. last exit


2) SPIN THE BLACK CIRCLE

See this needle...a see my hand...
Drop, drop, dropping it down...oh, so gently...
Well here it comes...I touch the plane...
Turn me up...won't turn you away...

Spin, spin...spin the black circle
Spin, spin...spin the black, spin the black...
Spin, spin...spin the black circle
Spin, spin...whoa...

Pull it out...a paper sleeve...
Oh, my joy...only you deserve conceit...
I'm so big...a-my whole world...
I'd rather you...rather you...than her...

Spin, spin...spin the black circle
Spin, spin...spin the black, spin the black...
Spin, spin...spin the black circle
Spin, spin...whoa...oh...

You're so warm...oh, the ritual...when I lay down your crooked arm...

Spin, spin...spin the black circle
Spin, spin...spin the black, spin the black...
Spin, spin...spin the black circle
Spin, spin...
Spin the black (5x) circle
Spin the black circle... (4x)
Spin, spin... (6x)


3) NOT FOR YOU

Restless soul, enjoy your youth
Like Muhammad hits the truth
Can't escape from the common rule
If you hate something, don't you do it too...too...

Small my table, a-sets just two
Got so crowded, I can't make room
Oh, where did they come from? Stormed my room!
And you dare say it belongs to you...to you...

This is not for you (3x)
Oh, not for you...ah, you...

...scream...my friends...don't call me...
...friends, no they don't scream...
...my friends don't call...my friends don't...

All that's sacred comes from youth
Dedication, naive and true
With no power, nothing to do
I still remember, why don't you...don't you...

This is not for you (3x)
Oh, never was for you...fuck you...
This is not for you...
Oh, this is not for you...yeah, you...
This is not for you...
Oh, not for you...
Oh, you...


4) TREMOR CHRIST

Winded is the sailor...drifting by the storm...
Wounded is the organ he left all...bloodied on the shore...
Gorgeous was his savior, sees her...drowning in his wake...
Daily taste the salt of her tears, but...a chance blamed fate...

Little secrets, tremors...turned to quake...
The smallest oceans still get...big, big waves...

Ransom paid the Devil...He whispers pleasing words...
Triumphant are the angels if they can...a get there first...

Little secrets tremors...turned to quake...
The smallest oceans still get...big, big waves...

I'll decide...take the dive...
Take my time...not my life...
Wait for signs...believe in lies...
To get by...it's divine...whoa...
Oh, you know what it's like...

Turns the bow back, tows and...drops the line...
Puts his faith in love and Tremor Christ...


5) NOTHINGMAN

Once divided...nothing left to subtract...
Some words when spoken...can't be taken back...
Walks on his own...with thoughts he can't help thinking...
Future's above...but in the past he's slow and sinking...
Caught a bolt 'a lightnin'...cursed the day he let it go...

Nothingman... (2x)
Isn't it something?
Nothingman...

She once believed...in every story he had to tell...
One day she stiffened...took the other side...
Empty stares...from each corner of a shared prison cell...
One just escapes...one's left inside the well...
And he who forgets...will be destined to remember...oh...oh...oh...

Nothingman... (2x)
Isn't it something?
Nothingman...

Oh, she don't want him...
Oh, she won't feed him...after he's flown away...
Oh, into the sun...ah, into the sun...

Burn...burn...
Nothingman... (2x)
Isn't it something?
Nothingman...
Nothingman... (2x)
Coulda' been something...
Nothingman...
Oh...ohh...ohh...


6) WHIPPING

Don't need a helmet, got a hard, hard head
Don't need a raincoat, I'm already wet
Don't need a bandage, there's too much...blood...
After a while, seems to roll right off...hmm...

Whipping, ah...they're whipping, ah...
...they're whipping, ah...they're whipping...

Don't need a hand, there's always arms attached
Oh, don't get behind, I can't fall back
Why must we trust all these rusted rails?
They don't want no change, we already have

They're whipping, ah...they're whipping, ah...
...they're whipping, ah...they're whipping...

Don't mean to push, but I'm being shoved!
Ohh, I'm just like you, think we've had enough
I can't believe a thing they want us to...oh...
Oh, we all got scars, they should have 'em too...

Oh, they're whipping, ah...they're whipping, ah...
...they're whipping, ah...they're whipping...
They're whipping, ah...they're whipping, ah...
...they're whipping...yeah...they're whipping...


7) PRY, TO

P-r-i-v-a-c-y is priceless to me (4x)
P-r-i-v-a-c-y (4x)


8) CORDUROY

The waiting drove me mad...you're finally here and I'm a mess
I take your entrance back...can't let you roam inside my head
I don't want to take what you can give...
I would rather starve than eat your bread...
I would rather run but I can't walk...
Guess I'll lie alone just like before...

I'll take the firmest path...oh, and I must refuse your test
A-push me and I will resist...this behavior's not unique
I don't want to hear from those who know...
They can buy, but can't put on my clothes...
I don't want to limp for them to walk...
Never would have known of me before...
I don't want to be held in your debt...
And I'll pay it off in blood, let I be wed...
And I'm already cut up and half dead...
I'll end up alone like I began...

Everything has changed, absolutely nothing's changed
Take my hand, not my picture, spilled my tincture

I don't want to take what you can give...
I would rather starve than eat your breast...
All the things that others want for me...
Can't buy what I want because it's free... (2x)
Can't be what you want because I'm...

I ain't s'posed to be just fun
Oh, to live and die, let it be done
I figure I'll be damned, all alone like I began...

It's your move now...
I thought you were a friend, but I guess I, I guess I hate you...


9) BUGS

All these...

I got bugs
I got bugs in my room
Bugs in my bed
Bugs in my ears
Their eggs in my head
Bugs in my pockets
Bugs in my shoes
Bugs in the way I feel about you

Bugs on my window
Trying to get in
They don't go nowhere
Waiting, waiting...
Bugs on my ceiling
Crowded the floor
Standing, sitting, kneeling...
A few block the door

And now the question's:
Do I kill them?
Become their friend?
Do I eat them?
Raw or well done?
Do I trick them?
I don't think they're that dumb
Do I join them?
Looks like that's the one

I got bugs on my skin
Tickle my nausea
I let it happen again
They're always takin' over
I see they surround me, I see...
See them deciding my fate
Oh, that which was once...was once up to me...
Now it's too late

I got bugs in my room...one on one
That's when I had a chance
I'll just stop now
I'll become naked
And with the...I'll become one


10) SATAN'S BED

It's not all been said...been said and done...
I've never slept in Satan's bed
Although I must admit...still visits my place
Uninvited, as you know, he don't wait
Funny how he always seems to fit in
Funny how I always want to give in
Sundays, Fridays, Tuesdays, Thursday, the same
Sometimes the special guest, he don't like to leave
Already...in love... (3x)
Already...

Who made, who made up, made up the myth
That we were born to be covered in bliss?
Who set the standard, born to be rich?
Such fine examples, skinny little bitch
Model, role model, roll some models in blood
Get some flesh to stick, so they look like us
I shit and I stink, I'm real, join the club
I'd stop and talk, but I'm already in love

Already...in love... (3x)
Already...

In love...Ah ha ha ha...
...follows torture...follows reward... (2x)
Oh, oh my butt...

Never shook Satan's hand, look see for yourself
You'd know it if I had, that shit don't come off
I'll rise and fall, let me take credit for both
Jump off a cliff, don't need your help so back off
I'll never suck Satan's dick...
Again, you'd see it, you know, right round the lips
I'll wait for an angel, but I won't hold my breath
'Magine they're busy, think I'm doing okay...
Already...in love... (6x)
Already...


11) BETTER MAN

Waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, it's got to stop
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over...
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over
She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man...
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...
Can't find a better man (2x)
Ohh...

Talkin' to herself, there's no one else who needs to know...
She tells herself, oh...
Memories back when she was bold and strong
And waiting for the world to come along...
Swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone
She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man...
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...
She lies and says she still loves him, can't find a better man...
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...
Can't find a better man (2x)
Yeah...

She loved him, yeah...she don't want to leave this way
She feeds him, yeah...that's why she'll be back again
Can't find a better man (3x)
Can't find a better...man...
Ohh...ohh...
Uh huh... (5x)
Ohh...


12) AYE DAVANITA

Awooh...aye davanita...awooh...awooha... (4x)
Jahooh...jahooh... (Repeat)
Awooh...aye davanita...awooh...awooha... (4x)


13) IMMORTALITY

Vacate is the word...vengeance has no place so near to her
Cannot find the comfort in this world
Artificial tear...vessel stabbed...next up, volunteers
Vulnerable, wisdom can't adhere...

A truant finds home...and a wish to hold on...
But there's a trapdoor in the sun...immortality...

As privileged as a whore...victims in demand for public show
Swept out through the cracks beneath the door
Holier than thou, how?
Surrendered...executed anyhow
Scrawl dissolved, cigar box on the floor...

A truant finds home...and a wish to hold on to...
But saw the trapdoor in the sun...

Immortality...
I cannot stop the thought...I'm running in the dark...
Coming up a which way sign...all good truants must decide...
Oh, stripped and sold, mom...auctioned forearm...
And whiskers in the sink...
Truants move on...cannot stay long
Some die just to live...
Ohh...


14) STUPID MOP

Don't you want people to love you?
My spanking, that's the only thing I want so much...
Spanking, that's the only thing I want so much...
That's the only thing I want so much...
Don't you want people to love you?
My spanking, that's the only thing I want so much...
That's the only thing I want so much...
Why is that better than being hugged?
Why is that better than being hugged?
Because you get closer to the person...
Closer to the person...
Why is that better than being hugged?
Because you get closer to the person...
Closer to the person...
Just like a person having sex feels cared for...
We wanna be loved, so we have sex together...
And they feel loved about that...
And this is the way it makes me feel...loved...
I want it, I dream about it, I think about it, I want it...
Just like a girl wants sex with a boy, you know?
It's the way I'll always be probably...
My last one was born in the system...
See, they're stupid, very stupid, those people over there...
They're stupid...
These people are so below mentality, honest to G-d, really...
You know what I mean, he got the nerve to bug me... (2x)
This mentality, honest to G-d, really...
You know what I mean, he got the nerve to bug me...
Honest to G-d, really...
You know what I mean, he got the nerve to bug me...
Bug me...bug me...he got the nerve to bug me...
Everything seems so hateful... (2x)
And I, I don't know if that's my imagination, but, umm...
Hey foxymophandlemama, that's me...
And I don't know if that's my imagination, but, umm...
Hey foxymophandlemama, that's me... (2x)
Think they got me...
Hey foxymophandlemama, that's me...hmm...
Hey foxymophandlemama, that's me...
...Know if that's my imagination, but, umm...
Hey foxymophandlemama, that's me...
She prides herself on her cleaning habits... (2x)
Hey foxymophandlemama, that's me...
She prides herself on her cleaning habits... (2x)
It's a lovely stupid mop, it is...
There's something really screwy about no streaking...
Is it any old dumb mop? It streaks...
Come on mop, no streaking mop...
I don't mind mop the floor, my mop streaks, I don't like it...
It's not me, it's the mop...
Come, I bought some new mops...
Go away you stupid, dumb old sponge mop...
I don't believe it...now the floor looks beautiful... (2x)
I don't believe it...old sponge mop...
Dumb old sponge mop... (2x)
Old sponge mop...
Dumb old sponge mop...
You're right, this mop's stupid...
Dumb old sponge mop...
I don't believe it...now the floor looks beautiful...
That's why they call me mophandlemama...
Now the floor looks beautiful...
That's why they call me mophandlemama... (3x)
It'd be two weeks before she could see her psychiatrist...
The twenty-third of May...you know she disturbed no one today...
The manager told her to completely forget...
If you ever go to bed, I'll kill you...
Do I tell the whole world that I'm mentally ill?
Go to the papers...yeah, why not?
Drum roll...
I want to show them that I can walk on my own without hands of theirs...
And, I can still fantasize, but I keep it to myself...
Keep it to myself...keep it to myself...
I think I deserve to be loved, don't you?
Very much so...
Think I deserve to be loved...
Keep it to myself...keep it to myself...
I think I deserve to be loved, don't you?
...To be loved, don't you?
But I keep it to myself...
Keep it to myself...keep it to myself...
I think I deserve to be loved, don't you?
And, I can still fantasize, but I keep it to myself...
Keep it to myself...keep it to myself...
I think I deserve to be loved, don't you?
Very much so...
Do you ever think that you would actually, really kill yourself?
Well, if I have thought about it real, uhh, real deep...
Yeas, I believe I would...
I have thought about it real, uhh, real deep...
Yes, I believe I would...
And, I can still fantasize, but I keep it to myself...
Keep it to myself...keep it to myself...
...that I can walk without hands of theirs... }
And, I can still fantasize, but I keep it to myself... } (2x)
Keep it to myself...keep it to myself... }
I think I deserve to be loved, don't you? }
Very much so...
Do you ever think that you actually would kill yourself?
Well, if I have thought about it real, uhh, real deep...
Yes, I believe I would...

No Code

No Code

1) SOMETIMES

Large fingers pushin' paint...
You're God and you got big hands...
The colors blend...
The challenges you give man...

Seek my part...devote myself...
My small self...like a book amongst the many on a shelf...
Sometimes I know, sometimes I rise
Sometimes I fall, sometimes I don't
Sometimes I cringe, sometimes I live
Sometimes I walk, sometimes I kneel
Sometimes I speak of nothing at all...
Sometimes I reach to myself, hear God...


2) HAIL, HAIL

Ah, is there room for both of us? Both of us apart?
Are we bound out of obligation? Is that all we've got?
I get the words, and then I get to thinkin'
But I don't want to think, I want to feel!
How do I feel? And how do I...

If you're the only one, well I'll never be enough, yeah...
Hail, hail, the lucky ones, I refer to those in love, yeah...

A-how I love you till the day I die...ah, and beyond...
Are we going to the same place? If so, can I come?
It's egg rollin' thick and heavy...all the past we carry...
Oh, I could be new...you underestimate me...
If you're the only one, well I'll never be enough, yeah...
Hail, hail the lucky ones, I refer to those in love, yeah...

I sometimes realize...I could only be as good as you'll let me...
Are you woman enough to be my man? Bandaged hand in hand...
Yeah...

I find it on my run in a race that can't be won, yeah...
All hail the lucky ones, I refer to those in love, yeah...
If you're my only one...so good, you only one...
I want to be your one...enough, you won...your one...your hun...


3) WHO YOU ARE

Come to send, not condescend
Transcendental consequences to transcend...
Where we are...Who are we? Who we are...

Trampled moss on your souls...
Changes all, you're a part...
Seen it all, not at all...
Can't defend the command...

Take me a for a ride before we leave...
Circumstance, clappin' hands...
A-driving winds, happenstance...
Off the track, in the mud...
That's the moss in the aforementioned verse...

...miraculous...and a little...

Just a little time, before we leave...
Stoplight plays its part...
So I would say you've got a part...
What's your part? Who you are
You are who, who you are...


4) IN MY TREE

Up here in my tree, yeah...
Newspapers matter not to me, yeah...no...
No more crowbars to my head, yeah...
I'm trading stories with the leaves instead, yeah...

Wave to all my friends, yeah...
They don't seem to notice me, no...
All their eyes trained on the street, yo, oh...
Sidewalk cigarettes and scenes, yeah...yeah...

Up here so high I start to escape
Up here so high, the sky I scrape
I'm so high, I hold just one breath here within my chest
Just like innocence...

I remember him, yeah...
I swore I knew everything, oh yeah...
They say knowledge is a dream, yeah...
He's growing up just like me, yeah...

I'm so light, the wind he shakes
I'm so high, the sky I scrape, yeah...
I'm so light I hold just one breath and go back to my nest
Sleep with innocence...

Up here so high, the bars they break...
Up here so high, the sky I scrape...
Had my eyes peeled both wide open, and I got a glimpse...
Of my innocence...got back my innocence...
Baby, got it...still got it...


5) SMILE

Don't it make you smile? (2x)
When the sun don't shine, it don't shine at all...
Don't it make you smile?

Don't it make you smile?
Don't it make me smile? Yeah...
When the sun don't shine, it don't shine at all...yeah...
Don't it make me smile?

I miss you already, yeah...I miss you always...
I miss you already, yeah...I miss you all day...
This is how I feel...

I...I miss you already, yeah...I miss you always...
The crooked heart swells all around, yeah...I miss you all day...

The crooked heart swells around, yeah...
Don't it make you smile? (2x)
The crooked heart swells around...


6) OFF HE GOES

1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4...
Know a man...his face seemed pulled and tense...
Like he's riding on a motorbike in the strongest winds...
So I approach with tact...suggest that he should relax...
But he's always movin' much too fast...

Said he'll see me on the flipside
On this trip he's taken for a ride
He's been takin' too much on...
There he goes with his perfectly unkept clothes
There he goes...

He's yet to come back...but I've seen his picture...
It doesn't look the same up on the racks...
We go way back...

I wonder 'bout his insides...
It's like his thoughts are too big for his size...
He's been taken...where, I don't know?
Off he goes with his perfectly unkept hope...
There he goes...

And now I rub my eyes...for he has returned...
Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned...
For he still smiles...and he's still strong...
Nothing's changed, but the surrounding bullshit, that has grown...

And now he's home, and we're laughing, like we always did...
My same old, same old friend...
Until a quarter-to-ten...
I saw the strain creep in...
He seems distracted and I know just what is gonna happen next...
Before his first step...he is off again...


7) HABIT

See it happen to a couple of friends
See it happen and the message it sends
Taking off for what's an obvious fall
Just to see what all the fuss is about

It's not your way...not your way...
It's not your way...yeah...

Another habit, sentence him up with you
Another habit, says he's long overdue
Another habit like an unwanted friend
I'm so happy with my righteous self...

It's not your way...not your way...
It's not your way...

Never thought you'd habit... (3x)
I never thought you, never thought you...
Never thought you'd habit... (3x)
I never thought you, never, never thought you...
Never thought you'd habit... (6x)

Speaking as a child of the nineties...

Never thought you'd habit... (3x)
I never thought you, never thought you...
Never thought you'd habit... (3x)
I never thought you, never, never thought you...
Never...never me...never you...never me...


8) RED MOSQUITO

Watched from the window with a red mosquito...
I was not allowed to leave the room...
I saw the sun go down, and now it's comin' up...
Somewhere in the time between...

I was bitten...must have been the devil...
He was just payin' me...
A little visit, a-reminding me of his presence...
Lettin' me know...he's a-waitin' for me...

Red man's your neighbor, call it behavior...
While you're climbing up slippery hills...
Two steps ahead of him, punctures in your neck...
Hoverin' just above your bed... (2x)
I was bitten...must have been the devil...
He was just paying me...
A little visit, reminding me of his presence...
And lettin' me know...he's a-waitin'...he's a-waitin'...
Up there...yeah...

If I had known then what I now know... (4x)


9) LUKIN

Drive down the street, can't find the keys to my own fucking home
I take a walk so I can curse my ass for being dumb
I make a right after the arches, stinking grease and bone
Stop at the supermarket, people stare like I'm a dog

I've been goin' to Lukin's...I gotta spot that Lukin's...
I knocked the door at Lukin's...opened the fridge...
Now I know life is worth...

I find the key, but I return to find an open door
So fucking freezin', they jump out the car, everybody wants some
I find my wife, I call the cops, this day's work's never done
The last I heard that freak was purchasing a fucking gun


10) PRESENT TENSE

Do you see the way that tree bends? Does it inspire?
Leaning out to catch the sun's rays...a lesson to be applied...
Are you gettin' something out of this all-encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone, redigesting past regrets, oh...
Or you can come to terms and realize
You're the only one who can forgive yourself, oh yeah...
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense...

Have you ideas on how this life ends?
Checked your hands and studied the lines?
Have you the belief that the road ahead ascends off into the light?
Seems that needlessly it's gettin' harder
To find an approach and a way to live...
Are we gettin' something out of this all-encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone redigesting past regrets, oh...
Or you can come to terms and realize...
You're the only one who cannot forgive yourself, oh...
A-makes much more sense to live in the present tense...


11) MANKIND

You'll be...going out with radio...
Going out with disco...going out like bacchanal...
I'll be...going out with telephone...
Going out alone...to the radar zone...

It's all just inadvertent, imitation, and I don't mean mine
It's all across this nation...
If it's just inadvertent, simulation, a pattern in all mankind
What's got the whole world fakin' it?

I'll be...playing with my magazine...
Using up my Listerine...Like Ovaltine...
And you'll be...you're dippin' in your battleship...
For the latest tip...for the latest dream...

It's all just inadvertent, imitation, and I don't mean mine
It's all across this nation...
If it's just inadvertent, simulation, a pattern in all mankind
What's got the whole world fakin' it?

If it's just inadvertent, imitation, a pattern in all mankind
What's got the whole world fakin' it?
What's got the whole world fakin'? (4x)
What's got the whole world fakin' it, yeah?


12) I'M OPEN

A man lies in his bed in a room with no door
He waits, hoping for a presence; something, anything to enter
After spending half his life searching, he still felt as blank
As the ceiling at which he stared
He is alive, but feels absolutely nothing
So, is he?

When he was six he believed that the moon overhead followed him
By nine, he had deciphered the illusion, trading magic for fact
No tradebacks...
So this is what it's like to be an adult
If he only knew now what he knew then...

I'm open... (2x)
Come on in... (4x)
I'm open... (2x)
Come on in... (4x)
I'm open...

Lying sideways atop crumpled sheets and no covers he decides to dream...
Dream up a new self for himself...


13) AROUND THE BEND

I'm wishing you a-well...mind at peace within yourself...
Covers up, I cast you off...I'll be watching as you breathe....
I'd lie still, you move, I'd send you off around the bend...

I hold your head deep in my arms...my fingertips they close your eyes...
Off you dream, my little child...there's a sun around the bend...
There's a sun around the bend...

All the evenings close like this...all these moments that I've missed...
Please forgive, won't you, dear?
Please forgive and let me share with you around the bend...

You're an angel when you sleep...
How I want your soul to keep of and all around the bend...

1)BRAIN OF J

1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4...sorry 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4

Who's got the brain of JFK?
What's it mean to us now, yeah?
Oh, it's sound insurance
But I can tell you, this is no lie

The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving
The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving

You, you've been taught
We'd been the same, now they got you in line
Stand behind the stripes
There will be order, so give it a good mind

The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving
The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving

And by name
The name they gave me
The name I'm letting go..

The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving
The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving
The whole world will be different soon
The whole world will be relieving
The whole world will be different soon, soon


2) FAITHFULL

Plaque on the wall says that no one's slept here
It's rare to come upon a bridge that has not been around
Or been stepped on
Whatever the notion we've laced in our prayers
The man upstairs is used to all of this noise
I'm through with screaming

Echoes nobody hears, it goes, it goes, it goes
Like echoes nobody hears, it goes, it goes, it goes

We're faithful, we all believe, we all believe it {4X}
Echoes nobody hears, it goes, it goes, it goes {2X}
We're faithful, we all believe, we all believe it {4X}

M.Y.T.H
Belief in the game controls that keeps us in a box of fear
We never listen
Voice inside so drowned out
Drowned you are, you are, you are a furry thing
And everything is you
Me you, you me, it's all related
What's a boy to do?
Just be darling and I will be too
Faithful to you


3) NO WAY

Here's a token of my open-ness
Of my need to not disappear
How I'm feeling, so revealing to me
I found my mind too clear
I just need someone to be there for.. me
I just want someone to be there for.. me

All the static in my attic-a
Shoots down my side nerve
To the ocean of my platitudes
Longitudes, latitudes, it's so absurd
I just need someone to be there for..
I just want someone to be there for..
Someone to be there for..

'Cause I'll stop trying to make a difference
I'm not trying to make a difference
I'll stop trying to make a difference
No way
'Cause I'll stop trying to make a difference
I'm not trying to make a difference
I'll stop trying to make a difference
No way

Ooh, let's call in an angel
Ooh, let's call in an angel
Ooh, let's call in an angel

'Cause I'll stop trying to make a difference
I'm not trying to make a difference
I'll stop trying to make a difference
No way
'Cause I'll stop trying to make a difference
I'm not trying to make a difference
I'll stop trying to make a difference
No way, no way
Let's call in an angel
Who's calling an angel?


4) GIVEN TO FLY

He could have tuned in, tuned in
But he tuned out
A bad time, nothing could save him
Alone in a corridor, waiting, locked out
He got up outta there, ran for hundreds of miles
He made it to the ocean, had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up, set him down on his knee

A wave came crashin' like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, hey look at him now
Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Oh, power, oh..

He's.. flying
Whole
High.. wide, whole

He floated back down 'cause he wanted to share
This key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere
But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men, well, fuckers:
He still stands

And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly

I'm flying.. whole
High.. flying, whole
He's flying, whole
High, whole, whole


5) WISHLIST

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish, I wish...


6) PILATE

Talk of circles and punching out
Looking in, drawing circles down
Falling up the south marking ground
Talking out of turn, drawing circles down

Like Pilate, I have a dog
Like Pilate, I have a dog
Like Pilate, I have a dog

Walks me out of town
Still, one is a crowd
Making angels in the dirt
Looking up, looking all around

Like Pilate, I have a dog
{Obeys, listens, kisses, loves}
Like Pilate, I have a dog
{Obeys, listens, kisses, loves}

Stunned by my own reflection
It's looking back, sees me too clearly
And I swore I'd never go there again
Not unlike a friend that politely drags you down, you down, you down

Like Pilate, I have a dog
{Obeys, listens, kisses, loves}
Like Pilate, I have a dog
{Obeys, listens, kisses, loves}
Like Pilate, I have a dog
{Obeys, listens, kisses, loves}


7) DO THE EVOLUTION

Woo.ooooooooooooooooo.................ooooooo.

I'm ahead, I'm a man
I'm the first mammal to wear pants, yeah
I'm at peace with my lust
I can kill 'cause in God I trust, yeah
It's evolution, baby

I'm at piece, I'm the man
I'm the stocks on the day of the crash, yeah
On the loose, I'm a truck
All the rolling hills, I'll flatten 'em out, yeah
It's herd behavior, uh huh
It's evolution, baby

Admire me, admire my home
Admire my song, here's my coat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

This land is mine, this land is free
I'll do what I want but irresponsibly
It's evolution, baby

I'm a thief, I'm a liar
There's my church, I sing in the choir:
{Hallelujah, hallelujah}

Admire me, admire my home
Admire my song, admire my clothes
'Cause we know, appetite for a nightly feast
Those ignorant Indians got nothin' on me
Nothin', why?

Because, it's evolution, baby!

I am ahead, I am advanced
I am the first mammal to make plans, yeah
I crawled the earth, but now I'm higher
Twenty-Ten, watch it go to fire

It's evolution, baby
It's evolution, baby

Do the evolution

Come on, come on, come on

War all crazy
War all crazy and what {6X}


9) MFC (MINI FAST CARS)

Sliding out of reverse into drive, this
wheel will be turning right then straight
Off in the sunset she'll ride

She can remember a time that I stood by the
Side of the road, spilled like wine there
She's out on her own and line high

There's no leavin' here
Ask I'm an ear
She's disappeared

They said that timing was everything
Made him want to be everywhere
There's a lot to be said for nowhere

There's no leavin' here
Ask I'm an ear
He's disappeared

There's no leavin' here
Ask I'm an ear
Fuck it, we'll disappear


10) LOW LIGHT

Clouds roll by
Reeling is what they say
Or is it just my way?
Wind blows by, low light
Sidetracked, low light
Can't see my tracks, your scent way back

Can I be here all alone?
Clear a path to my home
Blood runs dry
Books and jealousy tell me wrong
All I feel.. calm
Voice blows by, low light
Car crash, low light
Can't wear my mask, your first, my last

Voice blows by
Two birds is what they'll see
Gettin' lost upon their way
Wind rolls by, lowlight
Eye sight, lowlight

I need the light
I'll find my way from wrong, what's real?
Our dream I see


11) IN HIDING

I shut and lock the front door
No way in or out
I turned and walked the hallway
And pulled the curtains down
I knelt and emptied the mouth of every club around
But nothing's sound, nothing's sound

I'd stay but my last tab left me
Ignored all my rounds
Soon I was seeing visions and cracks along the walls
They were upside down

I swallow my words to keep from lying
I swallow my face just to keep from biting, I, I..
I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving, diving
I surfaced and all of my being was enlightened

I'm in hiding {4X}

It's been about three days now
Since I've been aground
No longer overwhelmed and it seems so simple now
It's funny when things change so much
It's all state of mind

I swallowed my words to keep from lying
I swallowed my face just to keep from biting
I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving, I was diving
I surfaced and all of my being was enlightened

Now I'm in hiding {8X}


12) PUSH ME, PULL ME

{'Get me out of here' - in warped, sped-up voice}
{'It's what I see' - sample from "Happy When I'm Crying}

I had a false belief
I thought I came here to stay
We're all just visiting
All just breaking like waves
The oceans made me, but who came up with love?

Push me, pull me, or pull me out {2X}

So if there were no angels, would there be no sin?
You better stop me before I begin
But let me say: if I behave, can you arrange a spacious hole in the ground
Somewhere nice, make it nice
Where the land meets high tide

Push me, pull me, or pull me out {4X}

Like a cloud dropping rain
I'm discarding all thought
I'll dry up, leaving puddles on the ground
I'm like an opening band for the sun

Push me, pull me {6X}

I've had enough, said enough, felt enough, I'm fine


13) ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS

Don't you think you oughta rest?
Don't you think you oughta lay you head down?
Don't you think you want to sleep?
Don't you think you oughta lay your head down tonight?

Don't you think you've done enough?
Oh, don't you think you've got enough, well maybe..
You don't think there's time to stop?
There's time enough for you to lay your head down, tonight, tonight

Maybe it'll wash away
All those yesterdays

What are you running from?
Taking pills to get along
Creating walls to call your own
So no one catches you drifting off and
Doing all the things that we all do

Maybe it'll wash away
All those yesterdays
All those yesterdays
All those paper plates

You've got time, you've got time to escape
There's still time, it's no crime to escape
It's no crime to escape, it's no crime to escape
There's still time, so escape

1) BREAKERFALL

Ohhh...
There's a girl on a ledge, who's got nowhere to turn
'Cause all the love that she had was just wood that she burned
Now her life is on fire, it's no ones concern,
She can blame the world... or prey till dawn
But only love can break her fall

Break her fall
Yeah, only love
Can break her fall, fall

It's like she lost her invitation to the party on earth
And she's standing outside hating everyone here
Yeah, she's her own disease, crying to her doll
But only love can break her fall

Break her fall
Only love can break her fall
Yeah

Yeah fall...
[The world is her fall]
Break her fall
Love, love, love can break her fall... who
Now only love can break her fall...
Love, love, can break her fall, fall
Love, love can break her fall
Only love can break her..


2) GOD'S DICE

It's out of my hands making your hands meet
Strumbling rises crumbling out of reach
It's in the cards of destiny, your sanity in tow

Designate... my luck
Ah, resignate...

This power has no roots to guide, no role
Trust me, rusted minds refuse to go
Unwillingness is meaningless to walk away in vain

Designate... my will
Ah, designate... my fill
Ah, resignate...

My will is crashing, synapses flashing slow
Ah, days like frame by frame, where do they go?
Ah yeah, why fight? Forget it. Cannot spend it after I go

Roll them high
Throw them again
All God's dice

Monkey driven, call this living? Ha...
Ah, too much thought, it's overwrought a hole
Yeah, minding yours what's mine not yours
Will finish us off

Ah, designate... my life
Ah, designate... my view
Ah, resignate... my will, my will, my will.. I will
Resignate... my god


3) EVACUATION

The sirens scream wanton attention
Time to take heed and change direction
Time to take stock and make omissions

Evacuation [2x]

Time to take leave all formal functions
Time to plant seeds of a reconstruction
No time this time to feign reluctance

It's like your waiting for a
Diamond shore to wash your way
Bets put aside you're evil
Lets crawl into your face
A vision vague or not raising,
A frightful wake-you-up

Time for evacuation
Evacuation [5x]

There was a solemn man
Watched his twilight disappear
[In the sand...]
Altered by a falling eagle
A warning sign
[Sign]
He sensed that worry could be strength,
With a plan he said, "time for... evacuation"
Evacuation...


4) LIGHT YEARS

I've used hammers made out of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
I undeciphered tricks at the bar
But now you're gone, I haven't figured out why
I've come up with riddles and jokes about war
I figured out numbers and what they're for
I've understood feelings and I've understood words,
But how could you be taken away?

And wherever you've gone and wherever we might go,
It don't seem fair, Today just disappeared
Your light reflected now, Reflected from afar
We were but stones, Your light made us stars

With heavy breath awakened regrets
Back pages and days that could have been spent together, but we were miles apart
Every inch between us becomes light years now
No time to be void, or save up on life
Oh, you got to spend it all

And wherever you've gone and wherever we might go
It don't seem fair, You seam to like it here
Your light reflected now, Reflected from afar
We were but stones, Your light made us stars

And wherever you've gone and wherever we might go,
It don't seem fair, Today just disappeared
Your lights reflected now, Reflected from afar
We were by stones, Your light made us stars...


5) NOTHING AS IT SEEMS

Don't feel like home, he's a little out
And all these words elope it's nothing like your poem
Putting in. Inputting in. Don't feel like methadone
A scratching voice all alone it's nothing like your baritone

It's nothing as it seems
The little that he needs it's home
The little that he sees is nothing,
He concedes it's home

One uninvited chromosome
A blanket like the ozone

It's nothing as it seems
All that he needs it's home
The little that he frees
Is nothing, he believes

Saving up a sunny day, something maybe two-tone
Anything of his own, a chip off the cornerstone
Who's kidding? Rainy day, a one way ticket headstone
Occupations overthrown, a whisper through a megaphone...

It's nothing as it seems
The little that he needs it's home
The little that he sees is nothing
He concedes it's home
And all that he frees
A little bittersweet, it's home
It's nothing as it seems
The little that you see it's home


6) THIN AIR

There's a light, when my baby's in my arms
There's a light, when the window shades are drawn
Hesitate when I feel I may do harm to her
Wash it off cause this feeling we can share
And I know she's reached my heart in thin air

Byzantine is reflected in our pond
There's a cloud, but the water remains calm
Reaching in the suns fingers clutch the dawn to pass
Even out, it's a precious thing to bear
And I know she's reached my heart in thin air
Yes I know she's reached my heart in thin air

It's not in my past to presume
Love can keep on moving in both directions
How to be happy and true
Is the quest we're taking on together
Take it on, on, on, on, on
Take it on, on, on, on, on...

There's a light when my baby's in my arms
And I know she's reached my heart in thin air
And I know she's reached my heart in thin air
And I know she's reached my heart in thin air
Yes I know she's reached my heart


7) INSIGNIFICANCE

All in all it's no one's fault
Excuses turn to carbon walls
Blame it all on chemical intercourse

The swallowed seeds of arrogance
Breeding in the thoughts of ten
Thousand fools that fight irrelevance

The full moon is dead skin
The one down here's wearing thin
So set up the ten pins as the human tide rolls in
Like a ball that's spinning

Bombs dropping down overhead, on the ground
It's instilled to want to live...
Oh..oh Bombs dropping down, please forgive our hometown
In our in-sig-ni-ficance...

"Turn the jukebox up", he said
Dancing in irreverence
Play C-3, let the song protest...

The plates began to shift
Perfect lefts come rolling in
I was alone and far away, hey
When I heard the band start playing
On the lip late take off

Bombs dropping down overhead, underground
It's instilled to want to live...
Bombs dropping down, please forgive our hometown
In our in-sig-nificance...

Feel like resonance of distance...
In the blood the iron lies...

It's instilled to want to live
Bombs dropping down, please forgive our hometown
In our insignificance
Oh, in our insignificance... oh


8) OF THE GIRL

Oh, he deals 'em off of the top, ties them off
Fills it up with his past, gets carried away
Oh, half his life a hand me down wasted away
Oh, he fills it up with the love of a girl

Oh, he left it alone drilled the pain with money to buy

How he makes his getaway...
how he makes his getaway

Oh, he chose a path, heavy the fall, quarter to four
Fills his night with the thought of a girl

How he makes his getaway
How he makes his getaway
How he makes his getaway
Get away...


9) GRIEVANCE

HHHAAVVEEE AAA DDRRIIINNKKK TTHHHEEEYYYRREEE BBUUYYIIINNGGG,...
Bottom of, Bottle of Denial,...

Big Guy,... Big eye,... watching me,...
Have to wonder what it sees?
Progress,.. laced with,.. ramifications,...
Freedom's being plugged.
Hmm...

Pull the innocent from a crowd,...
Raise those sticks them bring 'em down,...
If they fail to obey,...
Ah, if they fail to obey,... yeah yeah,...

For every tool they lend us,... A loss of independence.

I pledge my grievance to the flag,...
'Cause you don't give blood,.. then take it back again,...
Oh, we're all deserving something more.

Progress,... taste it,.. invest-it-all
Champagne Breakfast For Everyone,...
Ohh...

Break the innocent when they're proud,...
Raise the stakes,.. then bring them down
If,... they fail to obey,...
Yeah, ah, if they fail to obey,...

Pledge your grievance to the flag,...
Aw c'mon, don't give blood,.. then take it back again,...
Oh, we're all deserving something more.

Have a, have a drink, drink,..
Have a, have a drink, drink,...

I wanna grieve part the scene
I wanna taste everyone I see
I wanna run when I'm up high
I wanna run to the sea
I wanna life to be
I just wanna be
I will feel alive as long as I am free.


10) RIVAL

All my rivals will see what I have in store. My gun
I've been harboring fleets in this reservoir. Red sun
And this nations' about to explode

You're disciples are riddled with metaphors. Well hung
Better pony up and bring both your barrels full. Not one
As we release this unspeakable toll. Woh

As we see our santa claus... all the sounds and acting well...(?)

How's our mother to damn these contributors. With mud?
How will the man who made chemicals difficult. Shed blood?
How's our father supposed to be told. Woh
Ahhh, I don't. Woh.


11) SLEIGHT OF HAND

Routine was the theme,... He'd wake up,.. wash and pour himself
Into uniform,... Something he hadn't imagined being,...

As the merging traffic passed,... He found himself staring,...
Down,... at his own,... hands,...

Not remembering the change,... Not recalling the plan,...

Was it..?

He was okay,.. but wondering,.. about wandering,..
Was it age,... by consequence?,.. or was he moved by
Sleight of hand?,..

Mondays were made to fall,.. Lost on a road he knew by heart,...
It's like a book he read in his sleep,... Endlessly,...

Sometimes he hid in his radio,... watching others pull into their homes,...
While he was drifting,...

On a line,... of his own,... Off the line,.. of the side,...
Bye the by,... As dirt turned to sand,...
As if moved by sleight of hand,...

When he reached the shore of his,... clip on world,...
He resurfaced to the norm,...

Organized his few things,... His coat and keys,...
And he knew realizations,.. would,.. have to wait,...
Till he had more time. More time

A time to dream,.. to himself,... He waves goodbye,... a
A to his self,... I'll see you on the,.. other side,...
Another man,... Moved by sleight of hand,...


12) SOON FORGET

Sorry is the fool who trades his soul for a corvette
Thinks he'll get the girl he'll only get the mechanic
What's missing? He's living a day he'll soon forget

That's one more time around, The sun is going down
The moon is out but he's drunk and shouting
Putting people down, He's pissing, He's living a day he'll soon forget

Counts his money every morning, The only thing that keeps him horny
Locked in a giant house that's alarming
The townsfolk they all laugh

Sorry is the fool who trades his love for hi-rise rent
Seem the more you make equals the loneliness you get
And it's fitting. He's barley living a day he'll soon forget

That's one more time around and there is not a sound
He's lying dead clutching Benjamins, Never put the money down
He's stiffening, We're all whistling a man we'll soon forget.


13) PARTING WAYS

Behind her eyes there's curtains,...
And they've been closed to hide the flames,... remains

She knows,.. their futures burning,...
but she can smile just the same,... Same,...

And though her mood is fine today,...
There's a fear they'll soon be parting ways.

Standing like a statue,...
A chin of stone,.. a heart of clay,... hey.

And thought he's too big a man to say,...
There's a fear they'll soon be parting ways,...

Drifting away,... Drifting away,... Drifting away,...
Drifting away,... Drifting away,... Drifting away,..
