Lyrics

  • Aurora Village Daddy

    I like it when you say, "Let's have tea"

    I like it when you say, "Screw our economy"

    I like it when you say, "Come f*ck me"

    I like it when you say, "These chips are free"

     

    We like it when you pray – come save us

    We like it when you pray in you we must trust

    We like it when you pray ashes to dust

    We like it when you pray in Toys R Us

     

    Don’t you need a ride home?

    I thought you needed a ride home?

    Anybody need a ride home?

    You look like you need a ride home

    Don’t you know? You’re so pretty

    Don’t you know? The drinks are free

    Everybody knows... you’re with me.

     

    Don’t you need a ride home?

    I thought you needed a ride home?

    Anybody need a ride home?

    You look like you need a ride home

     

    Don’t you need a ride home? (Better beware!)

    I thought you needed a ride home? (Better behave!)

    Anybody need a ride home? (Better not go!)

    You look like you need a ride home (Told you so!)

  • Ballad of Baby Bear

    I can’t take another day like this

    Clothes on the floor...

    Head on the door...

    Me no more.

    I can scream and shout and pound my fists

    But no one seems to really see me

     

    Hey can’t you see me?

    I’m trapped here underneath the falls

    If you could free me

    I promise I’ll forget

    How I just love to crawl

     

    No, I can’t help it.

    I just let the waves keep pounding me Let ‘em wash away

    any trace of feeling left in me

    ‘Cuz I can’t take the way you look at me now

     

    Hey can’t you see me?

    I’m trapped here underneath the falls

    If you could free me

    I promise I’ll forget

    How I just love to crawl

    How I love to crawl…

    There was a little girl

    Who had a little curl

    Right in the middle

    Of her forehead And when she was good

    She was so good

    But when she was bad

    She was horrid

     

    Hey can’t you see me?

    I’m trapped here underneath the falls

    If you could free me

    I promise I’ll forget

    How I just love to crawl

    How I love to crawl...

  • BPM

    Won’t get freaky in a limousine

    Cuz we’d rather sing to a drum machine

    It might sound dweeby, but don’t be mean

    Cuz we’d rather sing to a drum machine

    Beats per minute is how we dream

    C’mon, let’s shake it to a drum machine

  • The Brokn Jestr

    In the waking hours, flooded in dim gray light

    Fearful and fragile once again fails to fight

    The surge of anguish filling in the deepest holes

    Then paints right over so the suffer barely shows

     

    It's the first of April so let's hear it for the fools

    That bitch because they've broken all of their own rules

    Now paint your face up 'cause you've got a court to please

    Make ‘em smile and laugh, no one wants your suffering

     

    Now don't it make you feel alright?

    We play and you dance

    And your worries fade away tonight

    We hurt but we fake it

    And nothing's fixed, but it's cool

    Just let it stay broken

    For now you're better than us fools

    The broken jester crumples where no shadows fall

    With arms outstretched he cries, but no one's there at all

    In a room of faceless strangers, some of them are friends

    But few of them every really know you in the end

     

    But don't it make you feel alright?

    We play and you dance

    And your worries fade away tonight

    We hurt but we fake it

    And nothing's fixed, but it's cool

    Just let it stay broken

    For now you're one of us fools

     

    For now you're better than fools

    For now you're better than fools

    Fools like me

  • Candy Kids (vs. Industrial Cavemen)

    Your big, baggy pants

    Make me sick.

    How you don’t trip

    On all that sh*t's

    A real neat trick

     

    I’ll tell you

    Where you can put those glow sticks

    You can shove 'em up your

    Candy coated rainbow sniffin’ toddler mouth

     

    Raise your clubs in the sky

    Drag her out tweeker party tonight

    Stuck in acid wash and stone

    Enter the cave rockin’ your bone

     

    Don’t we try so hard

    To fit into a scene...

    You’re no different from me (You and me are the same)

    All we want is a good beat (We just need a place to hang)

    You’re no different from me

    Let’s collaborate

    Let’s communicate

     

    Why the long face and sallow growl?

    What’s your excuse to be so down?

    You’re droppin’ big coin

    To get so low

    But I might too

    If I still lived at home.

    With speedy gaze and twisting jaw

    You’ve really got it so wrong

     

    Don’t we try so hard...

    Don't we try so hard

    To fit into a scene

    You’re no different from me (You and me are the same)

    All we want is a good beat (We just need a place to hang)

    You’re no different from me

    Let’s collaborate

    Let’s communicate

     

    Collaboration communication

    Get it together

    For manifestations

    Combining efforts shouldn’t be so hard

    You know that we can do it

    Let down your guard

     

    We are stars

    Twinkle twinkle shine so bright

    Whether you like the dark

    Or bug out to lights

    Its alright

    It shouldn’t matter what’s your scene

    As long as you realize

    We’re on the same team.

     

    You’re no different from me (You and me are the same)

    All we want is a good beat (We just need a place to hang)

    You’re no different from me

    Let’s collaborate

    Let’s communicate

     

    You’re no different from me (You and me are the same)

    All we want is a good beat (We just need a place to hang)

    You’re no different from me

    Let’s collaborate

    Let’s communicate

  • Chitoses Golden Gate

    Okay, so this is it...

    Hesitate just a bit...

    "Can you take this picture for me?"

    *Click*

     

    May as well immortalize you

    Heaven knows I’m through

    Wonder if my brother’d like these shoes?

     

    Stepped up to enjoy the view

    Stupid tourist never knew

    I’d be long gone now if it weren’t for you

    But lookin’ back now

    Would I have drowned

    If I’d turned you down?

     

    Just lay back and relax

    You’re cradled in the oceans grasp

    Hold onto me all the way

    I’ll propel you up into the day

    Reach up for the light

    It’s not a dream this time

    You can feel it rushing all around you

     

    Just when you think you’re sunk

    Underneath you looking up

    A golden seal means much more than luck

     

    Stepped up to enjoy the view

    Stupid tourist never knew

    I’d be dead by now if it weren’t for you

    I talk to seals now

    Cuz you showed me how

    When you pulled me out and said

     

    You can just lay back and relax

    You’re cradled in the oceans grasp

    You can lean on me all the way

    I’ll propel you up into the day

  • Cuz

    I want a lover who doesn’t need any other

    I want a lover that lets me be

    I want a lover who’s got his sh*t together

    I want a lover that’s not like me

     

    It’s ok if you fall down

    It’s ok to lean on me

    You don’t have to be so proud

    We’ll pick it up eventually

     

    Why’s it gotta be so hard to find

    Someone who fits just like a glove

    Is it all just a waste of time?

    Does it exist – a perfect love?

     

    ‘Cuz I tried it all before

    And it never got me anywhere but

    Me knockin on another door...

    Same party, a different floor...

    Why’s it gotta be so hard to find

    Someone who fits just like a glove

    Is it all just a waste of time?

    Does it exist – a perfect love?

     

    ‘Cuz I tried it all before

    And it never got me anywhere but

    Me knockin on another door...

    Same party, a different floor... (It’s ok if you fall down)

     

    Cuz I tried it all before (It’s ok to lean on me)

    And it never got me anywhere but (You don’t have to be so proud)

    Me knockin on another door...  (We’ll pick it up eventually)

    Same party, a different floor...

  • Daywalker

    The fairest of them all, you have so many fooled

    Red hot flames give way to bitter, freezing cold

    Pretty on the outside when you’re feeling good

    The monster that’s within revealed in party mode

     

    So step into the light, my dear

    Your shadows can’t protect you here

     

    No glitter skin romanticising evil souls

    No liquid mass displaced could ever fill your holes

    Burn up in the light, sometimes I wish you would

    Skin so soft and fair, I know it probably could

     

    So step into the light, my dear

    Your shadows can’t protect you here

     

    Mirror, who is the fairest to me?

    Well, go find her and split the truth from the fallacy

    Mirror, who is the fairest to me?

    Well, go find her and rip the beast from the girl I know you’ll never be

    The candy house you built to lure naive ones in

    Resulting tooth decay from all your saccharine sin

    I’ll leave behind the stories for the real world

    The feeble fable never was a real girl

     

    So step into the light, my dear

    Your shadows can’t protect you here

    You say that you’re afraid, of what - I’ve never understood.

    It feels like just more trailer glamour

     

    You are not real, you are fairy tale

     

    Mirror, who is the fairest to me?

    Well, go find her and split the truth from the fallacy

    Mirror, who is the fairest to me?

    Well, go find her and rip the beast from the girl I know you’ll never be

    The girl I know you’ll never be

    The girl I know you’ll never be

  • The Deep End

    Boy you better watch your back...

    For the lies you told they might come back to haunt you...

     

    I’ve seen you watching me

    When you think know one else can see

    Believe me, I’ve watched you

     

    Yeah…

    And no one has to know

    I know a place where we can go

    But better not say no

     

    I can’t handle that you don’t want me

    You better hope that I ain’t in too deep

    Isn’t this you’re idea of fun?

    Well look out baby ‘cause here I come

     

    I’ve heard the lies before

    Oh, "You want me and you want more,"

    Then who’s that with you now?

    I’m not some little whore

    Like Alex, I won’t be ignored

    And let me make this vow…

    I’ll take you down

     

    I can’t handle that you don’t want me

    You better hope that I ain’t in too deep

    Isn’t this you’re idea of fun?

    Well look out baby ‘cause here I come

     

    Well look out baby ‘cause here I come

    I’m coming, I’m coming for you

    I’m coming for you, baby

    I’m coming, I’m coming for you

    I’m coming for your "girlfriend"

    I’m coming, I’m coming for you

    I’m coming for you, baby

     

    And I… won’t be… denied.

  • Doobius

    We always had your back when somebody cried...

    Bullshit on all your fantastic designs

    But it gets harder with each time…

    To cover your tracks, blur the lines

    The stories too good to be true

    We want so much to believe you

     

    And never would I say

    That you should fade away

    If you could just be real we might be

    Tight still

     

    You can try, but you can never hide

    Your dubious side

    Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince

    You’re living a lie

     

    You can try, but you can never hide

    Your dubious side

    Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince

    You’re living a lie… a lie

     

    Remember back when you cried I let you down…

    To anyone and everyone around

    But never once did you tell me

    Shut me out passive aggressively

    How’m I supposed to make things right

    When you refuse to even fight

    And never would I say

    That you should fade away

    If you could just be real we might be

    Tight still

     

    You can try, but you can never hide

    Your dubious side

    Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince

    You’re living a lie

     

    You can try, but you can never hide

    Your dubious side

    Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince

    You’re living a lie…

     

    How’m I supposed to make things right

    When you refuse to even fight

    And never would I say that you should fade away

     

    If you could just be real we might be tight still

  • Drool

    I’ve got the weight of the world

    Crushing down on me

    I just need me a new crush

    Because it’s distracting

     

    I didn’t have to look too far

    From my front door

    And I don’t have to look back

    There just isn’t any more

    Just isn’t any more

     

    And if you think it’d be okay

    A little longer I’ll stay

    And if you think it’d be okay

    A little longer I’ll stay

     

    Now I have nothing to lose

    But they keep taking things away

    Maybe if I didn’t choose you

    It wouldn’t have to be this way

     

    I’ve got the weight of the world

    Crushing down on me

    I just need me a new crush

    And I don’t have to look back

    There just isn’t any more

    It wouldn’t have to be this way

    [ 2x ]

     

    Now, you’re not mine for the taking

    But you come for me I’m shaking

    The words spill out like drool

    "Would your girl get pissed if I kissed you?"

  • Fake

    We’re all good at playing games

    And yes I’ve played that game before

    But you can’t keep playing when

    You’re laying face down on the floor

     

    We saved a spot for you

    It’s yours if you want it

    And all you have to do

    Is tell the truth

     

    Yeah, I see your hands are shaking

    Yeah, you can’t stop swaying

    Yeah, you say you’re fine tonight but…

    Yeah, I know you’re faking

     

    I’m not trying to say that I’m

    A stranger to scandal

    Or that I’ve never bitten off

    More than I could handle

    But true friends help you find your way back home

    When you get lost

    And all you have to do

    Is tell them where you are

     

    Yeah, I see your hands are shaking

    Yeah, you can’t stop swaying

    Yeah, you say “I’m fine tonight,” but…

    Yeah, I know you’re faking

     

    Yeah, I hear you talkin’ babe, but…

    Can’t tell what you’re saying

    Yeah, you say “I’m fine tonight,” but…

    We all know you’re faking

     

    We all know you’re faking, baby…

    We all know you’re fake.

    We all know you’re faking, baby…

    We all know you’re fake.

  • Flight

    Set fire to the heavens above

    No command of a God of love

     

    So many mouths to feed

    That’s cause enough for me to bleed

    Trade Heaven eternal for a fiery inferno

    Punish the wicked

    Consequence is meaningless

    The price of my actions: more babies in caskets

     

    Say what you want

    Nothing can keep

    Can keep me from

    All that is mine

     

    Set fire to the heavens above

    No command of a God of love

     

    So many mouths to feed

    That’s cause enough for me to bleed

    Trade Heaven eternal for a fiery inferno

    Punish the wicked

    Consequence is meaningless

    The price of my actions: more babies in caskets

    Say what you want

    Nothing can keep

    Can keep me from

    All that is mine

     

    Say what you want nothing can keep me

    From taking flight

    Keeping your feet on the ground is fine

    For those afraid to even try

     

    High above in holy light

    Nothing for me in this life

     

    Set fire to the heavens above

    No command of a God of love

  • Ghosts of Hollywood

    We set out to find the places tourists dare not stand in line

    Off the beaten path, a putrescence palm trees cannot hide

    All the glamour, all the murder

    All the glitz and all the shame

    Feels electric like a pulse that’s pounding in her dirty veins

     

    As I raise the peat to my lips, an unseen voice says,

    “Take a sip”

     

    It’s gonna be a long, long night

    The party’s on the other side

    And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes

    The ghosts of Hollywood will never die

     

    Shelly knew them all by name

    An index of forgotten fame

    A toothless smile to hide the pain

    The would-be starlet's silent shame

    Muddled like a lime within the gin

    Power House - the altar for confessing sins

     

    Down I go again, as you implore

    To the spirits - follow the floor

    And it’s gonna be a long, long night

    The party’s on the other side

    And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes

    The ghosts of Hollywood will never die

     

    All the glamour, all the murder

    All the glitz and all the shame

    Feels electric like a pulse that’s pounding in her dirty veins

     

    As I raise the peat to my lips, an unseen voice says,

    “Take a sip”

     

    It’s gonna be a long, long night

    The party’s on the other side

    And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes

    The ghosts of Hollywood will never die

    The ghosts of Hollywood are on your side tonight

    The ghosts of Hollywood are on your side

     

    They’re on your side...

    It’s gonna be a long, long night

  • Heirlooms

    These four walls stood

    Stood for something you can never leave behind

    Behind the eyes of sadness

     

    We poured over

    A lifetime of sentiments and collectables

    Dividing up these precious treasures

     

    And I never dreamed these things would mean anything to me

    You can’t take them with, so you leave behind what you love

     

    It’s understood, what might seem like knick knacks to me

    Encapsulated your dreams

    So I’ll try to find the beauty of your smile

    In each trinket I keep

     

    And I never dreamed these things would mean anything to me

    You can’t take them with, so you leave behind what you love

    And I never dreamed…

    I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong

    Take what you want, just remember me when I’m gone

    I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong

    Take what you want, just remember me

     

    Isn’t it nice, like sugar and spice

    Everything that a girl could need

    Long pearls, short hair for girls

    Fringe down to my knees

    Lovely ladies lined in pink and gold we called a cameo

    Tiny pictures in black and white we called a tin-type

     

    I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong

    Take what you want, just remember me when I’m gone

    I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong

    Take what you want, just remember me

     

    Remember me

    Remember me

  • I See Red

    Like a ghost

    I go unnoticed by most

    And though some feel me near

    They can’t make out what I need

    And then I cannot appear

     

    And fall I sometimes do

    I fell right into you

    You didn’t brush me off

    You called me luck

     

    And I’ll fly away, I always do

    But not before I bring good luck to you

    Hard shell wings beat and say

     

    I see red

    And I don’t feel mad at all

    And I don’t feel sad at all

    Could it be I feel free because

    You really can see me?

     

    And although you can recall

    All of the bitter things I’ve said

    It’s not always a negative to me

    When I see red

    I suppose it may seem strange to some

    Why we fall on everyone

    At one time or another

    But not everybody cares

    Of all the crawly things you knew

    This ladybug is true

    So I’ll crawl longer

    If you want me to

     

    Then I’ll fly away, I always do

    But not before I bring good luck to you

    Hard shell wings beat and say

     

    I see red

    And I don’t feel mad at all

    And I don’t feel sad at all

    Could it be I feel free because

    You really can see me?

     

    And although you can recall

    All of the bitter things I’ve said

    It’s not always a negative to me

    When I see red.

  • Jr.

    Her eyes... so wild

    Or so she’d want you to think

    She’s got... a style

    That’s all her own, oh – no no!

     

    She’s got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

    And she can lie like only a woman can lie

    She’s got a bod to make you think you're in heaven

    But you will find there's only hell inside

     

    She'll lift... you up

    Only to knock you to the ground

    She says she’s had enough

    And then she’s crawlin' right back around

    If you get to close

    She’ll suck you up and spit you out

    You might think she really loves you

    Boy, I have my doubts

    She's got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

    And she can lie like only a woman can lie

    She’s got a bod to make you think you’re in heaven

    But you will find there’s only hell inside

     

    She's so weak...

    She's got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

    And she can lie like only a woman can lie

    She’s got a bod to make you think you’re in heaven

    But you will find there’s only hell inside

     

    She's got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

    And she can lie like only a woman can lie

    She’s got a bod to make you think you’re in heaven

    But you will find there’s only hell inside

  • Killbabykill

    I forgot how it feels to have much and still need more

    I would trade anything just to get back to before

    All the world fell to chaos around us in a blink

    And it didn't leave much time to plan or think

     

    So we stocked up on everything we'd need to get by

    And so many of us left, we know will die

    Now my love is true – but if they turn you, I won't hesitate to shoot

     

    Now we have no choice

    We were born to suffer

    And this life we live is just a bitter pill

    If we could, of course, we would never soil our soles, but...

    When the hit's on you

    You kill, baby, kill

    Now our numbers are fewer, but we will always fight

    Off the wicked, deranged, the tormented and dead-eyed

    And it wouldn't be normal to never question why we're here at all

    Why bother to try when we know we will all die

     

    But we have no choice

    We were born to suffer

    And this life we live is just a bitter pill

    If we could, of course, we would never sin or harm, but...

    When they feast on you

    You kill, baby, kill

     

    And you can't look back or think about the life that you once had

    ‘Cause it's gone

    When the stench of death and rotting flesh pollute the air

    Be strong... you must be strong

    And carry on...

  • Let Go

    Now, before you think it… this ain’t about no one

    We all have been there at one time

    Even I admit it; for me, it’s more like 9

    And we all should hear this sometimes:

     

    At times you must put yourself first

     

    It didn’t work out

    Deep down, you knew it wouldn’t last

    But you keep trying – still denying

    Move on. Move on. Move on and

    Just let it go.

     

    I know you’re hurting, but don’t let ‘em

    See you fall apart

    It isn’t worth it – think of yourself and

    Move on. Move on. Move on before you

    Lose out on another one

     

    And you never know what else there is…

     

    Sure, I could tell names.

    Let’s start with everyone.

    And I’ve always been one to wallow.

    But there’s just so long

    You can permit yourself

    How can you be strong on the bottom?

     

    Inside, you know it's time to say goodbye

     

    It didn’t work out

    Deep down, you knew it wouldn’t last

    But you keep trying – still denying

    Move on. Move on. Move on and

    Just let it go.

     

    I know you’re hurting, but don’t let ‘em

    See you fall apart

    It isn’t worth it – think of yourself and

    Move on. Move on. Move on and just let it go

    Move on… move on…

     

    Move on before you lose out on a perfect one

  • Lily

    Lily White, I tried to keep you

    In a vase upon my mantle, but the glass is cracked

    And all the water I pour in leaks out

     

    Lily White, I tried and tried

    But all my efforts were in vain

    And I think that it's time

    I throw my Lily out into the rain

     

    Now your roots are deep, with vines like ivy

    Growing twisted in my mind

    I pray it won't disrupt the soil

    When I reach within and pluck you out

     

    And it's so like me to nurture flowers

    Thinking them pretty and wild

    Only to find I planted weeds that choke my garden out

     

    In my mind’s eye I see you growing strong

    In the place you say that you belong

    And I should've known you never can keep something alive

    When you cut it down... and take it inside

    Lily White, I think I glamorized

    Your melancholy meaning

    I kind of “fell in like” with your commercial dark side

     

    But you hated your association

    Only with the mourning

    You think that everybody forgot that you’re alive

     

    It's so like me to nurture flowers

    Thinking them pretty and wild

    Only to find I planted weeds that choke my garden out

     

    In my mind’s eye I see you growing strong

    In the place you think that you belong

    And I should've known you never can keep something alive

    When you cut it down... and take it inside

    Oh, I took you inside and I watched you die

  • My Time

    Nothing’s quite as dark as a bright, sunny day

    Warm is everywhere but the cold spot I lay

     

    Take my breath away...

    Take my breath away...

    Take my breath away...

     

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

     

    Try to soak the light up before it all fades

    Flashes of the past fuse and form your face

    (You) take my breath away

    Take my breath away...

    Take my breath away…

     

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

    And the dragonflies say it’s my time

     

    My time...

  • Not Long For This World

    Have you ever seen a ghost that’s still alive?

     

    Well it cuts like a mirror

    And I have to hide

     

    With face like angel suicide

    Well she won’t let go

    And she’ll never fight

    Bound for the light

     

    A chill runs down my spine

    As the vapor rushes by

    She turns to me and smiles

    And I wonder if this time

    Could be goodbye

    For the last time

     

    Tell me what will happen

    To this beautiful girl?

    I have a sickening feeling

    That she’s not long for this world

     

    So kiss her for me

    If you see her

    Kiss her for me

    If you see her

     

    When I walk alone

    I don’t look down

    I have learned they’re watching

    From all around

     

    And she’s too smart to

    Take up with clowns

    But the halo slips

    And then focus shifts

    A chill runs down my spine

    As the vapor rushes by

    She turns to me and smiles

    And I wonder if this time

    Could be goodbye

    For the last time

     

    Tell me what has happened

    To this beautiful girl?

    I have a sickening feeling

    That she’s not long for this world

     

    So kiss her for me

    If you see her

    Kiss her for me

    If you see her

    So kiss her for me

    If you see her

    Kiss her for me

    If you see her

     

    Have you ever seen a ghost that’s still alive?

    Well it cuts like a mirror

    And I have to hide

     

    With face like angel suicide

    Well she won’t let go

    And she will never fight

    Bound for the light

  • Playin'

    You were as much a conquest for me as I was for you

    So tell me why’m I trippin’?

    And each time I allow you to run

    Back to her, Back to me

    I can feel my value and my strength slippin’

     

    What the f*ck?

    Full grown man?

    Selfish little boy…

    Selfish little boy.

     

    Baby, why we gotta play like that?

    We know we never gonna make a pact

    We say it’s just for fun, but know we’re wrong

    And now it’s over ‘cuz the fun is gone

     

    Baby, why we gotta play like that?

    We know we never gonna make a pact

    We say it’s just for fun, but know we’re wrong

    And now it’s over ‘cuz the fun is gone

     

    Fun is gone…

    I’ll play for you the victim

    I used to be the chief

    And now you are the master

    Where once you felt defeat

     

    And maybe that’s just what we get

    For playin’ not for keeps

    A never-ending cycle of lopsided beliefs

    What the f*ck?

    Full grown man?

    Selfish little boy...

    Selfish little boy...

     

    Baby, why we gotta play like that?

    We know we never gonna make a pact

    We say it’s just for fun, but know we’re wrong

    And now it’s over ‘cuz the fun is gone

    Fun is gone…

     

    What the f*ck?

    Full grown man?

    Selfish little boy...

    Selfish little boy...

  • Real Woolie

    It’d take me five light-years to reach you where you are

    Your name and your home are so hard to pronounce

    If I could catch a ride on a shooting star

    Maybe I would find you waiting there for me

     

    Beneath your emerald sky- a tear runs from your eye

    My six foot, fury blue-eyed firefly

     

    Can you come and take me home… x4

     

    It’d take me five light-years to reach you where you are

    Your name and your home are so hard to pronounce

    If I could catch a ride on a shooting star

    Maybe I would find you waiting there for me

     

    No gravity up here – but still the force is clear

    It’s rhythms and frequencies that draw us near...

     

    Can you come and take me home...

  • Riviera

    Does it get you high when you make her cry?

    You feel like a man when you raise your hand?

    Spittin’ shit at me where all your friends can see

    Your pathetic attempt to be somebody

     

    Better watch your mouth

    We’re callin’ you out

     

    When the "Riv" roles up on you

    Better run for cover, boy...

     

    Come and play – its an urban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

    Come and play – its suburban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

     

    Pardon me for fallin’ when you pushed me down

    Should’ve kept my mouth shut but I had to clown

    Friday’s fried chicken – Sunday, roast beef

    Sit back & smile with it stuck in your teeth

    Monday make his sandwich – spit on the bread

    Put a rat trap on your side of the bed

     

    Come and play – its an urban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

    Come and play – its suburban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

     

    Got 3 kids in the car, 1 in the oven

    I’m needin that thing to make me sing

     

    Can you help me?

  • Shatner's Universe (Getting Older)

    Time can only be undone so much

    When the dawn fades for the last time

    Soon it'll all run out for everyone

     

    He's been around, around a long, long time

    He's seen enough to know when to rewind

    All the voices swirling in his head

    Can't stop the fading dawn

     

    For every misadventure and achievement

    A bead of sweat will form for where it leads him

    The greatest exploration yet to come

    Once pass the fading dawn

     

    Time can only be undone so much...

    I'm done, I'm done

    I feel dirty, please draw me a bath

    I'm tired, I'm tired

    So tired of hurting

    How long will he last

     

    She said don't you sing like an actor

    And don't paint watercolors in the rain

    And don't you walk like a dancer

    And don't blame your parents

    For your pain

    It's your pain...

    Your pain...

    Is your pain.

    I've tried, I've tried

    And now I'm done

    Let's begin again

    I've lied, I've lied

    To myself as I grew thin

     

    She said don't wear your heart so close to your sleeve

    And get that world off your shoulders

    Don't belive just to believe just to believe

    And don't waste time getting older

     

    I'm getting over getting older...

     

    Time can only be undone so much...

    When the dawn fades for the last time.

  • Shiftless

    She traded in her lace for ribbons

    He laid in wait for his next victim

     

    White spats walk fast

    Down darkened alleys

    Nice cape nice hat

    Lure little dollies

     

    Drugs and wine and dine

    Oh, ain’t we lucky?

    We’re feelin’ fine

    Why would we worry?

     

    Step inside

    My shiny car

    I love you

    For just who you are

     

    Step inside

    I’ve got treats for you

    Lucky you

    Your dream’s come true

     

    Icy cold

    Each lovely face

    Ripped to ribbons

    Tarnished lace

    We forgot the punished ones names

    While his lives on

    His sin found fame

    He waits…

    Calm…

    Silent…

    Shiftless.

     

    The filth of years corrodes your tears

    The needs drown out all your fears

    Look where the life you lead has led

    The devil sleeping in your bed

     

    Icy cold

    Each lovely face

    Ripped to ribbons

    Tarnished lace

    We forgot the punished ones names

    While his lives on

    His sin found fame

     

    She traded in her lace for ribbons

    He laid in wait for his next victim

  • Sleep

    Your poison drips

    From tongue to ear

    And I’m deafened

    So the voice of reason can’t seep in

     

    Infected from within

    Things... can be a little bit crazy

    I kiss rational goodbye

    And hear the voice that you gave me

    It says, "There’s something I’d like to give to you; a gift of rest and peace."

    It’d keep you warm the whole night through

    Keep you warm the whole night through if only you’d sleep

     

    Fall back and sleep for me

    Just sleep

    Sleep, sleep for an eternity

     

    So... So.. So... So intent on destroying

    Your victim; slightly willing

    Now makes the room stand still

    Until the tables stop turning

    And I really should thank you

    For all the grief that you’ve given

    Has shown me that

    The one to walk away is the winner

    And now there’s something

    I’d like to give to you

    The best gratuity... Just take a bite of this, you’ll see

    Take a bite of this, you’ll see

    How soundly you’ll sleep

     

    Fall back and sleep for me

    Just sleep

    Sleep for an eternity

     

    Just sleep

    Fall back and sleep for me

    Just sleep

    Sleep for an eternity

  • Solitary

    Well, it’s such an old cliche

    But I guess it’s true, they say

    That you never know what you have

    ‘til it’s gone

     

    It gets hard to hold on when the only way’s to let you walk away

    And I know you’re worth the fight

    But, sometimes I wonder if I might be better off alone

     

    And yes, I know I can be cold

    And colder still the more the distance grows

     

    Is it all just in my head?

    Self-made misery and dread

    Tell myself to keep the faith, but sometimes I still wonder…

     

    Now I know - no, it’s not the same you never could let go

    Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care

    But when I reach for you you’re just not there

    And I can’t wait around for you to see I’m right here

    So what does it mean to love?

    To accept the things that you can never change

    And be glad you have enough

    Of the pieces that do seem to fit in place

     

    But that’s easier said than done

    When my stories start to run

    Tell myself to keep the faith, but sometimes I still wonder…

     

    Now I know - no, it’s not the same you never could let go

    Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care

    But when I reach for you – you’re just not there

    And I can’t wait… I can’t wait

     

    No, don’t go! Now I take it back, you can’t just walk away

    Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care

    And when I reach for you – just be there

    Hear through my frightened words and know that I’m right here

  • Symply Sid

    Vicious only was so in rumor and in deed

    His performance lacked his only act

    The drama no one needs

    What a waste of space; of a pretty face

    Of a thing so easy to replace

    But it didn't have to be that way

    He chose to kill it all away

     

    And I see this in you too

    I don't say this to be cruel

    I say this to you simply, Sid

    Because somebody has to

     

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

    'Cause the hands that help you out are fading fast

    And it's the last time I'll ask you

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

     

    Barrett was a brilliant lunatic

    And gifted basket case

    A ticking bomb set to implode

    Leaving dreams and chaos in his wake

    His work left some to wonder

    Was genius or madness true

    But either way he was tragedy

    And so my dear are you

    I don't say this to be cruel

    I can't watch you play the fool

    I say this you simply, Sid

    Because somebody has to

    I don't say this to be mean

    Wish I could shake you and wake you til you see

    Your nightmare's just a dream

    It could be a beautiful dream

     

    A beautiful dream...

     

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

    'Cause the hands that help you out are fading fast

    And it's the last time I'll ask you

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

     

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

    Walking 'round

    Falling down

    Relating sound

    To my face

    Hitting the ground

     

    Looking up to see what's right

    Can't remember what happened last night

    All I know is I'm gagged and bound

    Please find my sweater in the lost and found

    All I want is a college degree

    And my family to be pleased with me

    Take my place forget honesty

  • The Want

    I feel like I’m walking on a cloud

    Ever since you’ve been around

    A smile or a word could change my day

    It’s been years since I’ve felt this way

     

    You could’ve stepped right out of my dreams

    Opened doors & everything

    A part of me I thought must’ve died

    Ooh, baby, you brought back to life

     

    But what are these?

    The words I’m saying don’t sound like me

    Awake from the dream

    Lined eyes reading reality

     

    Oh, forget it

    Never mind

    Thought I’d try, but forget it

    Ever after is not my style

    It’s pathetic

    Who am I kidding, I’ll never get it

    What I want is the want

    And now it’s been longer than you’d think

    Make rules hard for me to keep

    I guess I should count myself lucky

    You find broken things interesting

     

    It’s funny, you’d think I would be fine

    Silently by your side

    With all of the many times I’ve lied

    A shadow hiding in the light

     

    But will I forever be kissing a mystery?

    The hero always must mask his true identity

     

    Oh, forget it

    Never mind

    Thought I’d try, but forget it

    Ever after is not my style

    It’s pathetic

    Who am I kidding, I’ll never get it

    What I want is the want

  • Weenie

    We’re gonna haunt your house

    Like a ghost tonight

    Take a spooky bath

    And maybe grab a bite

     

    Forget dinner for one

    No need to be alone

    Drink some wine and spirits

    Disconnect the phone

     

    Lie down on the floor

    We’ll elevate you up

    Watch you fall down

    While we refill our cups

     

    Flip mama’s picture

    There’s no guilt here

    Put your head in our laps

    We’ll whisper nothing in your ear

    Baby don’t be scared tonight

    Just let your...

    Darling hostesses delight you

    With our...

    Favorite way to show you fright

    We’ll rock you

     

    Baby don’t be scared tonight

    Just let your...

    Darling hostesses delight you

    With our... Favorite way to show you fright

     

    We’ll rock you

    Ever softly to the light…

  • The Well Was Poisoned

    Man child has a child

    Not a man, let alone a man of his word

    Little bird chirp chirp

    But it’s not the sweetest sound you’ve ever heard

     

    I dipped in the ink again

    ‘Cause my pen was writing thin

    Ain’t it absurd?

     

    Once, twice, a third again

    Don’t touch the twin, he’s poison

    You’d think I’d have learned

    You think I’d have learned

     

    Number two was bigger once

    Number one the biggest

    Still I was never fazed

    Number one has come undone

    Two is withering away

    And both are half-crazed

     

    What the hell was I thinking

    Going after number three

    The worst in some ways

     

    Scattered unpredictable

    Promises the moon in full

    And then never pays

     

    Now I’m through trying to collect

    None of you knew you owed a debt

    No more will I attempt to bleed

    The tapped out twins are not for me

    Man child’s still around

    But I broke my quill in half

    And kept him at bay

    But he still pretends to drool

    Hoping I will be the fool

    Believe what he say

     

    But I am much smarter now

    Man, I cannot believe how

    He falls for each stray

     

    Each more mangy than the last

    How could I be such an ass

    To think he had taste

    What a f*cking waste

     

    Now I’m through trying to collect

    None of you knew you owed a debt

    No more will I attempt to bleed

    The tapped out twins are not for me

     

    All you unattainable ones I seek

    You’re all just killing time ‘til I’m ready

    Don’t think that what we once did feel was real

    To me you’re all just ghosts now disappear

     

    ‘cause I’m through trying to collect

    None of you knew you owed a debt

    No more will I attempt to bleed

    The tapped out twins are not for me

     

    You’re not for me…

  • Aurora Village Daddy

    I like it when you say, "Let's have tea"

    I like it when you say, "Screw our economy"

    I like it when you say, "Come f*ck me"

    I like it when you say, "These chips are free"

     

    We like it when you pray – come save us

    We like it when you pray in you we must trust

    We like it when you pray ashes to dust

    We like it when you pray in Toys R Us

     

    Don’t you need a ride home?

    I thought you needed a ride home?

    Anybody need a ride home?

    You look like you need a ride home

    Don’t you know? You’re so pretty

    Don’t you know? The drinks are free

    Everybody knows... you’re with me.

     

    Don’t you need a ride home?

    I thought you needed a ride home?

    Anybody need a ride home?

    You look like you need a ride home

     

    Don’t you need a ride home?

    (Better beware!)

    I thought you needed a ride home?

    (Better behave!)

    Anybody need a ride home?

    (Better not go!)

    You look like you need a ride home

  • Ballad of Baby Bear

    I can’t take another day like this

    Clothes on the floor...

    Head on the door...

    Me no more.

    I can scream and shout and pound my fists

    But no one seems to really see me

     

    Hey can’t you see me?

    I’m trapped here underneath the falls

    If you could free me

    I promise I’ll forget

    How I just love to crawl

     

    No, I can’t help it.

    I just let the waves keep pounding me Let ‘em wash away

    any trace of feeling left in me

    ‘Cuz I can’t take the way you look at me now

     

    Hey can’t you see me?

    I’m trapped here underneath the falls

    If you could free me

    I promise I’ll forget

    How I just love to crawl

    How I love to crawl…

     

    There was a little girl

    Who had a little curl

    Right in the middle

    Of her forehead And when she was good

    She was so good

    But when she was bad

    She was horrid

     

    Hey can’t you see me?

    I’m trapped here underneath the falls

    If you could free me

    I promise I’ll forget

    How I just love to crawl

    How I love to crawl...

    Won’t get freaky in a limousine

    Cuz we’d rather sing to a drum machine

    It might sound dweeby, but don’t be mean

    Cuz we’d rather sing to a drum machine

    Beats per minute is how we dream

    C’mon, let’s shake it to a drum machine

  • The Brokn Jestr

    In the waking hours, flooded in dim gray light

    Fearful and fragile once again fails to fight

    The surge of anguish filling in the deepest holes

    Then paints right over so the suffer barely shows

     

    It's the first of April so let's hear it for the fools

    That bitch because they've broken all of their own rules

    Now paint your face up 'cause you've got a court to please

    Make ‘em smile and laugh, no one wants your suffering

     

    Now don't it make you feel alright?

    We play and you dance

    And your worries fade away tonight

    We hurt but we fake it

    And nothing's fixed, but it's cool

    Just let it stay broken

    For now you're better than us fools

    The broken jester crumples where no shadows fall

    With arms outstretched he cries, but no one's there at all

    In a room of faceless strangers, some of them are friends

    But few of them every really know you in the end

     

    But don't it make you feel alright?

    We play and you dance

    And your worries fade away tonight

    We hurt but we fake it

    And nothing's fixed, but it's cool

    Just let it stay broken

    For now you're one of us fools

     

    For now you're better than fools

    For now you're better than fools

    Fools like me

    Underneath you looking up

    A golden seal means much more than luck

    Stepped up to enjoy the view

    Stupid tourist never knew

    I’d be dead by now if it weren’t for you

    I talk to seals now

    Cuz you showed me how

    I want a lover that’s not like me

    We’ll pick it up eventually Why’s it gotta be so hard to find

    Someone who fits just like a glove

    Is it all just a waste of time?

    Does it exist – a perfect love?

    The fairest of them all, you have so many fooled

    Red hot flames give way to bitter, freezing cold

    Pretty on the outside when you’re feeling good

    The monster that’s within revealed in party mode

     

    So step into the light, my dear

    Your shadows can’t protect you here

     

    No glitter skin romanticising evil souls

    No liquid mass displaced could ever fill your holes

    Burn up in the light, sometimes I wish you would

    Skin so soft and fair, I know it probably could

     

    So step into the light, my dear

    Your shadows can’t protect you here

     

    Mirror, who is the fairest to me?

    Well, go find her and split the truth from the fallacy

    Mirror, who is the fairest to me?

    Well, go find her and rip the beast from the girl I know you’ll never be

     

    The candy house you built to lure naive ones in

    Resulting tooth decay from all your saccharine sin

    I’ll leave behind the stories for the real world

    The feeble fable never was a real girl

     

    So step into the light, my dear

    Your shadows can’t protect you here

    You say that you’re afraid, of what - I’ve never understood.

    It feels like just more trailer glamour

     

    You are not real, you are fairy tale

    When you think know one else can see

    Believe me, I’ve watched you

     

    Yeah…

    And no one has to know

    I know a place where we can go

    But better not say no

     

    I can’t handle that you don’t want me

    You better hope that I ain’t in too deep

    Isn’t this you’re idea of fun?

    Well look out baby ‘cause here I come

     

    I’ve heard the lies before

    Oh, "You want me and you want more,"

    Then who’s that with you now?

     

    I’m not some little whore

    Like Alex, I won’t be ignored

    And let me make this vow…

    I’ll take you down

     

    I can’t handle that you don’t want me

    You better hope that I ain’t in too deep

    We always had your back when somebody cried...

    Bullshit on all your fantastic designs

    To cover your tracks, blur the lines

    The stories too good to be true

    We want so much to believe you

    I let you down…

    To anyone and everyone around

    But never once did you tell me

    Shut me out passive aggressively

    How’m I supposed to make things right

    When you refuse to even fight

    Yeah, you can’t stop swaying

    Yeah, you say you’re fine tonight but…

    Yeah, I know you’re faking

    Set fire to the heavens above

    No command of a God of love

     

    So many mouths to feed

    That’s cause enough for me to bleed

    Trade Heaven eternal for a fiery inferno

    Punish the wicked

    Consequence is meaningless

    The price of my actions: more babies in caskets

    We set out to find the places tourists dare not stand in line

    Off the beaten path, a putrescence palm trees cannot hide

    All the glamour, all the murder

    All the glitz and all the shame

    Feels electric like a pulse that’s pounding in her dirty veins

     

    As I raise the peat to my lips, an unseen voice says, “take a sip”

     

    It’s gonna be a long, long night

    The party’s on the other side

    And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes

    The ghosts of Hollywood will never die

     

    Shelly knew them all by name

    An index of forgotten fame

    A toothless smile to hide the pain

    The would-be starlet's silent shame

    Muddled like a lime within the gin

    Power House - the altar for confessing sins

     

    Down I go again, as you implore

    To the spirits - follow the floor

     

    And it’s gonna be a long, long night

    The party’s on the other side

    And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes

    Stood for something you can never leave behind

    Behind the eyes of sadness

     

    We poured over

    A lifetime of sentiments and collectables

    Dividing up these precious treasures

     

    And I never dreamed these things would mean anything to me

    You can’t take them with, so you leave behind what you love

     

    It’s understood, what might seem like knick knacks to me

    Encapsulated your dreams

    So I’ll try to find the beauty of your smile

    In each trinket I keep

     

    And I never dreamed these things would mean anything to me

    You can’t take them with, so you leave behind what you love

    And I never dreamed…

    Isn’t it nice, like sugar and spice

    Everything that a girl could need

    Long pearls, short hair for girls

    Fringe down to my knees

    Lovely ladies lined in pink and gold we called a cameo

    Tiny pictures in black and white we called a tin-type

     

    I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong

    Take what you want, just remember me when I’m gone

  • I See Red

    Like a ghost

    I go unnoticed by most

    And though some feel me near

    They can’t make out what I need

    And then I cannot appear

     

    And fall I sometimes do

    I fell right into you

    You didn’t brush me off

    You called me luck

     

    And I’ll fly away, I always do

    But not before I bring good luck to you

    Hard shell wings beat and say

     

    I see red

    And I don’t feel mad at all

    And I don’t feel sad at all

    Could it be I feel free because

    You really can see me?

     

    And although you can recall

    All of the bitter things I’ve said

    It’s not always a negative to me

    When I see red

    I suppose it may seem strange to some

    Why we fall on everyone

    At one time or another

    But not everybody cares

    Of all the crawly things you knew

    This ladybug is true

    So I’ll crawl longer

    If you want me to

     

    Then I’ll fly away, I always do

    But not before I bring good luck to you

    Hard shell wings beat and say

     

    I see red

    And I don’t feel mad at all

    And I don’t feel sad at all

    Could it be I feel free because

    You really can see me?

     

    And although you can recall

    All of the bitter things I’ve said

    It’s not always a negative to me

    When I see red.

    That’s all her own, oh – no no!

     

    She’s got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

    And she can lie like only a woman can lie

    She’s got a bod to make you think you're in heaven

    But you will find there's only hell inside

     

    She'll lift... you up

    Only to knock you to the ground

    She says she’s had enough

    And then she’s crawlin' right back around

    If you get to close

    She’ll suck you up and spit you out

    You might think she really loves you

    Boy, I have my doubts

     

    She's got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

    And she can lie like only a woman can lie

    She’s got a bod to make you think you’re in heaven

    She's got a smile like Ken Griffey, Jr.

  • Killbabykill

    I forgot how it feels to have much and still need more

    I would trade anything just to get back to before

    All the world fell to chaos around us in a blink

    And it didn't leave much time to plan or think

     

    So we stocked up on everything we'd need to get by

    And so many of us left, we know will die

    Now my love is true – but if they turn you, I won't hesitate to shoot

     

    Now we have no choice

    We were born to suffer

    And this life we live is just a bitter pill

    If we could, of course, we would never soil our soles, but...

    When the hit's on you

    You kill, baby, kill

     

    Now our numbers are fewer, but we will always fight

    Off the wicked, deranged, the tormented and dead-eyed

    And it wouldn't be normal to never question why we're here at all

    Why bother to try when we know we will all die

     

    But we have no choice

    We were born to suffer

    And this life we live is just a bitter pill

    If we could, of course, we would never sin or harm, but...

    When they feast on you

    You kill, baby, kill

     

    And you can't look back or think about the life that you once had

    ‘Cause it's gone

    When the stench of death and rotting flesh pollute the air

    Be strong... you must be strong

    And carry on...

  • Let Go

    Now, before you think it… this ain’t about no one

    We all have been there at one time

    Even I admit it; for me, it’s more like 9

    And we all should hear this sometimes:

     

    At times you must put yourself first

     

    It didn’t work out

    Deep down, you knew it wouldn’t last

    But you keep trying – still denying

    Move on. Move on. Move on and

    Just let it go.

     

    I know you’re hurting, but don’t let ‘em

    See you fall apart

    It isn’t worth it – think of yourself and

    Move on. Move on. Move on before you

    Lose out on another one

     

    And you never know what else there is…

     

    Sure, I could tell names.

    Let’s start with everyone.

    And I’ve always been one to wallow.

     

    But there’s just so long

    You can permit yourself

    How can you be strong on the bottom?

     

    Inside, you know it's time to say goodbye

     

    It didn’t work out

    Deep down, you knew it wouldn’t last

    But you keep trying – still denying

    Move on. Move on. Move on and

    Just let it go.

     

    I know you’re hurting, but don’t let ‘em

    See you fall apart

    It isn’t worth it – think of yourself and

    Move on. Move on. Move on and just let it go

    Move on… move on…

     

    Move on before you lose out on a perfect one

  • Lily

    Lily White, I tried to keep you

    In a vase upon my mantle, but the glass is cracked

    And all the water I pour in leaks out

     

    Lily White, I tried and tried

    But all my efforts were in vain

    And I think that it's time

    I throw my Lily out into the rain

     

    Now your roots are deep, with vines like ivy

    Growing twisted in my mind

    I pray it won't disrupt the soil

    When I reach within and pluck you out

     

    And it's so like me to nurture flowers

    Thinking them pretty and wild

    Only to find I planted weeds that choke my garden out

     

    In my mind’s eye I see you growing strong

    In the place you say that you belong

    And I should've known you never can keep something alive

    When you cut it down... and take it inside

     

    Lily White, I think I glamorized

    Your melancholy meaning

    I kind of “fell in like” with your commercial dark side

     

    But you hated your association

    Only with the mourning

    You think that everybody forgot that you’re alive

     

    It's so like me to nurture flowers

    Thinking them pretty and wild

    Only to find I planted weeds that choke my garden out

     

    In my mind’s eye I see you growing strong

    In the place you think that you belong

    And I should've known you never can keep something alive

    When you cut it down... and take it inside

    Oh, I took you inside and I watched you die

  • My Time

    Nothing’s quite as dark as a bright, sunny day

    Warm is everywhere but the cold spot I lay

     

    Take my breath away...

    Take my breath away...

    Take my breath away...

     

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

     

    Try to soak the light up before it all fades

    Flashes of the past fuse and form your face

    (You) take my breath away

     

    Take my breath away...

    Take my breath away…

     

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

    I lay back with my eyes wide open

    Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

    And the dragonflies say it’s my time

     

    My time...

  • Not Long For This World

    Have you ever seen a ghost that’s still alive?

     

    Well it cuts like a mirror

    And I have to hide

     

    With face like angel suicide

    Well she won’t let go

    And she’ll never fight

    Bound for the light

     

    A chill runs down my spine

    As the vapor rushes by

    She turns to me and smiles

    And I wonder if this time

    Could be goodbye

    For the last time

     

    Tell me what will happen

    To this beautiful girl?

    I have a sickening feeling

    That she’s not long for this world

     

    So kiss her for me

    If you see her

    Kiss her for me

    If you see her

     

    When I walk alone

    I don’t look down

    I have learned they’re watching

    From all around

     

    And she’s too smart to

    Take up with clowns

    But the halo slips

    And then focus shifts

     

    A chill runs down my spine

    As the vapor rushes by

    She turns to me and smiles

    And I wonder if this time

    Could be goodbye

    For the last time

     

    Tell me what has happened

    To this beautiful girl?

    I have a sickening feeling

    That she’s not long for this world

     

    So kiss her for me

    If you see her

    Kiss her for me

    If you see her

    So kiss her for me

    If you see her

    Kiss her for me

    If you see her

     

    Have you ever seen a ghost that’s still alive?

    Well it cuts like a mirror

    And I have to hide

     

    With face like angel suicide

    Well she won’t let go

    And she will never fight

    Bound for the light

  • Playin'

    You were as much a conquest for me as I was for you

    So tell me why’m I trippin’?

    And each time I allow you to run

    Back to her, Back to me

    I can feel my value and my strength slippin’

     

    What the f*ck?

    Full grown man?

    Selfish little boy…

    Selfish little boy.

     

    Baby, why we gotta play like that?

    We know we never gonna make a pact

    We say it’s just for fun, but know we’re wrong

    And now it’s over ‘cuz the fun is gone

    Baby, why we gotta play like that?

    We know we never gonna make a pact

    We say it’s just for fun, but know we’re wrong

    And now it’s over ‘cuz the fun is gone

     

    Fun is gone…

     

    I’ll play for you the victim

    I used to be the chief

    And now you are the master

    Where once you felt defeat

    And maybe that’s just what we get

    For playin’ not for keeps

    A never-ending cycle of lopsided beliefs

    What the f*ck?

    Full grown man?

    Selfish little boy...

    Selfish little boy...

     

    Baby, why we gotta play like that?

    We know we never gonna make a pact

    We say it’s just for fun, but know we’re wrong

    And now it’s over ‘cuz the fun is gone

    Fun is gone…

     

    What the f*ck?

    Full grown man?

    Selfish little boy...

  • Real Woolie

    It’d take me five light-years to reach you where you are

    Your name and your home are so hard to pronounce

    If I could catch a ride on a shooting star

    Maybe I would find you waiting there for me

     

    Beneath your emerald sky- a tear runs from your eye

    My six foot, fury blue-eyed firefly

     

    Can you come and take me home… x4

    It’d take me five light-years to reach you where you are

    Your name and your home are so hard to pronounce

    If I could catch a ride on a shooting star

    Maybe I would find you waiting there for me

     

    No gravity up here – but still the force is clear

    It’s rhythms and frequencies that draw us near...

     

    Can you come and take me home...

  • Riviera

    Does it get you high when you make her cry?

    You feel like a man when you raise your hand?

    Spittin’ shit at me where all your friends can see

    Your pathetic attempt to be somebody

     

    Better watch your mouth

    We’re callin’ you out

     

    When the "Riv" roles up on you

    Better run for cover, boy...

    Come and play – its an urban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

    Come and play – its suburban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

     

    Pardon me for fallin’ when you pushed me down

    Should’ve kept my mouth shut but I had to clown

     

    Friday’s fried chicken – Sunday, roast beef

    Sit back & smile with it stuck in your teeth

    Monday make his sandwich – spit on the bread

    Put a rat trap on your side of the bed

    Come and play – its an urban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

    Come and play – its suburban holiday

    We are all sick and in pain

    There’s two sides to this tale, still everybody fails

     

    Got 3 kids in the car, 1 in the oven

    I’m needin that thing to make me sing

     

    Can you help me?

  • Shatner's Universe (Getting Older)

    Time can only be undone so much

    When the dawn fades for the last time

    Soon it'll all run out for everyone

     

    He's been around, around a long, long time

    He's seen enough to know when to rewind

    All the voices swirling in his head

    Can't stop the fading dawn

     

    For every misadventure and achievement

    A bead of sweat will form for where it leads him

    The greatest exploration yet to come

    Once pass the fading dawn

     

    Time can only be undone so much...

    I'm done, I'm done

    I feel dirty, please draw me a bath

    I'm tired, I'm tired

    So tired of hurting

    How long will he last

     

    She said don't you sing like an actor

    And don't paint watercolors in the rain

    And don't you walk like a dancer

    And don't blame your parents

    For your pain

     

    It's your pain...

    Your pain...

    Is your pain.

    I've tried, I've tried

    And now I'm done

    Let's begin again

    I've lied, I've lied

    To myself as I grew thin

     

    She said don't wear your heart so close to your sleeve

    And get that world off your shoulders

    Don't belive just to believe just to believe

    And don't waste time getting older

     

    I'm getting over getting older...

     

    Time can only be undone so much...

    When the dawn fades for the last time.

  • Shiftless

    She traded in her lace for ribbons

    He laid in wait for his next victim

     

    White spats walk fast

    Down darkened alleys

    Nice cape nice hat

    Lure little dollies

     

    Drugs and wine and dine

    Oh, ain’t we lucky?

    We’re feelin’ fine

    Why would we worry?

     

    Step inside

    My shiny car

    I love you

    For just who you are

     

    Step inside

    I’ve got treats for you

    Lucky you

    Your dream’s come true

     

    Icy cold

    Each lovely face

    Ripped to ribbons

    Tarnished lace

    We forgot the punished ones names

    While his lives on

    His sin found fame

     

    He waits…

    Calm…

    Silent…

    Shiftless.

     

    The filth of years corrodes your tears

    The needs drown out all your fears

    Look where the life you lead has led

    The devil sleeping in your bed

     

    Icy cold

    Each lovely face

    Ripped to ribbons

    Tarnished lace

    We forgot the punished ones names

    While his lives on

    His sin found fame

     

    She traded in her lace for ribbons

    He laid in wait for his next victim

  • Sleep

    Your poison drips

    From tongue to ear

    And I’m deafened

    So the voice of reason can’t seep in

     

    Infected from within

    Things... can be a little bit crazy

    I kiss rational goodbye

    And hear the voice that you gave me

    It says, "There’s something I’d like to give to you; a gift of rest and peace." It’d keep you warm the whole night through

    Keep you warm the whole night through if only you’d sleep

     

    Fall back and sleep for me

    Just sleep

    Sleep, sleep for an eternity

     

    So... So.. So... So intent on destroying

    Your victim; slightly willing

    Now makes the room stand still

    Until the tables stop turning

     

    And I really should thank you

    For all the grief that you’ve given

    Has shown me that

    The one to walk away is the winner

    And now there’s something

    I’d like to give to you

    The best gratuity... Just take a bite of this, you’ll see

    Take a bite of this, you’ll see

    How soundly you’ll sleep

     

    Fall back and sleep for me

    Just sleep

    Sleep for an eternity

     

    Just sleep

    Fall back and sleep for me

    Just sleep

    Sleep for an eternity

  • Solitary

    Well, it’s such an old cliche

    But I guess it’s true, they say

    That you never know what you have

    ‘til it’s gone

     

    It gets hard to hold on

    When the only way is to let you walk away

    And I know you’re worth the fight

    But, sometimes I wonder if I might

    Be better off alone

     

    And yes, I know I can be cold

    And colder still the more the distance grows

     

    Is it all just in my head?

    Self-made misery and dread

    Tell myself to keep the faith, but sometimes I still wonder…

     

    Now I know - no, it’s not the same

    You never could let go

    Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care

    But when I reach for you

    You’re just not there

    And I can’t wait around for you to see

    I’m right here

     

    So what does it mean to love?

    To accept the things that you can never change

    And be glad you have enough

    Of the pieces that do seem to fit in place

     

    But that’s easier said than done

    When my stories start to run

    Tell myself to keep the faith, but sometimes I still wonder…

     

    Now I know - no, it’s not the same

    You never could let go

    Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care

    But when I reach for you –

    You’re just not there

    And I can’t wait… I can’t wait

     

    No, don’t go! Now I take it back, you can’t just walk away

    Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care

    And when I reach for you- just be there

    Hear through my frightened words and know that I’m right here

  • Symply Sid

    Vicious only was so in rumor and in deed

    His performance lacked his only act

    The drama no one needs

    What a waste of space; of a pretty face

    Of a thing so easy to replace

    But it didn't have to be that way

    He chose to kill it all away

     

    And I see this in you too

    I don't say this to be cruel

    I say this to you simply, Sid

    Because somebody has to

     

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

    'Cause the hands that help you out are fading fast

    And it's the last time I'll ask you

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

     

    Barrett was a brilliant lunatic

    And gifted basket case

    A ticking bomb set to implode

    Leaving dreams and chaos in his wake

    His work left some to wonder

    Was genius or madness true

    But either way he was tragedy

    And so my dear are you

     

    I don't say this to be cruel

    I can't watch you play the fool

    I say this you simply, Sid

    Because somebody has to

    I don't say this to be mean

    Wish I could shake you and wake you til you see

    Your nightmare's just a dream

    It could be a beautiful dream

     

    A beautiful dream...

     

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

    'Cause the hands that help you out are fading fast

    And it's the last time I'll ask you

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

     

    Rise up

    Pull yourself up

  • Text Mess

    Walking 'round

    Falling down

    Relating sound

    To my face

    Hitting the ground

     

    Looking up to see what's right

    Can't remember what happened last night

    All I know is I'm gagged and bound

    Please find my sweater in the lost and found

    If lost, return to me

    All I want is a college degree

    And my family to be pleased with me

    Take my place forget honesty

     

    Walking backwards

    Looking up

    Disbelieving my f*cked up luck

    Teenage queens with grown-up dreams

    Is this really where you want to be

     

    Little girls grow up too fast, too soon

     

    If lost, return to me

    All I want is a college degree

    And my family to be pleased with me

    Take my place forget honesty

  • The Want

    I feel like I’m walking on a cloud

    Ever since you’ve been around

    A smile or a word could change my day

    It’s been years since I’ve felt this way

     

    You could’ve stepped right out of my dreams

    Opened doors & everything

    A part of me I thought must’ve died

    Ooh, baby, you brought back to life

     

    But what are these?

    The words I’m saying don’t sound like me

    Awake from the dream

    Lined eyes reading reality

     

    Oh, forget it

    Never mind

    Thought I’d try, but forget it

    Ever after is not my style

    It’s pathetic

    Who am I kidding, I’ll never get it

    What I want is the want

     

    And now it’s been longer than you’d think

    Make rules hard for me to keep

    I guess I should count myself lucky

    You find broken things interesting

     

    It’s funny, you’d think I would be fine

    Silently by your side

    With all of the many times I’ve lied

    A shadow hiding in the light

     

    But will I forever be kissing a mystery?

    The hero always must mask his true identity

     

    Oh, forget it

    Never mind

    Thought I’d try, but forget it

    Ever after is not my style

    It’s pathetic

    Who am I kidding, I’ll never get it

    What I want is the want

  • Weenie

  • The Well Was Poisoned

    Man child has a child

    Not a man, let alone a man of his word

    Little bird chirp chirp

    But it’s not the sweetest sound you’ve ever heard

     

    I dipped in the ink again

    ‘Cause my pen was writing thin

    Ain’t it absurd?

     

    Once, twice, a third again

    Don’t touch the twin, he’s poison

    You’d think I’d have learned

    You think I’d have learned

    Number two was bigger once

    Number one the biggest

    Still I was never fazed

    Number one has come undone

    Two is withering away

    And both are half-crazed

     

    What the hell was I thinking

    Going after number three

    The worst in some ways

     

    Scattered unpredictable

    Promises the moon in full

    And then never pays

     

    Now I’m through trying to collect

    None of you knew you owed a debt

    No more will I attempt to bleed

    The tapped out twins are not for me

    Man child’s still around

    But I broke my quill in half

    And kept him at bay

    But he still pretends to drool

    Hoping I will be the fool

    Believe what he say

     

    But I am much smarter now

    Man, I cannot believe how

    He falls for each stray

     

    Each more mangy than the last

    How could I be such an ass

    To think he had taste

    What a f*cking waste

    Now I’m through trying to collect

    None of you knew you owed a debt

    No more will I attempt to bleed

    The tapped out twins are not for me

     

    All you unattainable ones I seek

    You’re all just killing time ‘til I’m ready

    Don’t think that what we once did feel was real

    To me you’re all just ghosts now disappear

     

    ‘cause I’m through trying to collect

    None of you knew you owed a debt

    No more will I attempt to bleed

    The tapped out twins are not for me

     

    You’re not for me…
