By starlight I’ll kiss you
And promise to be your one and only
I’ll make you feel happy
And leave you to be lost in mine
And where will we go, what will we do?
Soon said I, will know
Dead eyes, are you just like me?
Cause her eyes were as vacant as the seas
Dead eyes, are you just like me?
And all along, we knew we’d carry on
Just to belong
By starlight I know you
As lovely as a wish granted true
My life has been empty, my life has been untrue
And does she really know, who I really am?
Does she really know me at last
Dead eyes, are you just like me?

Born to please, every simple need

I stand alone in my thoughts indeed

Hate you

For ever making me

I’m in you, I’m your anything

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

Come to me, let me hold you still

I’m so tired, just as tired as you

Take me for anyone but me

All that you feel is never true

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

When you say that you are

Forever my star

Could never let you go, no, no

And never let you know

Let roar these fears

To the whore of my tears

Pure as a lie, I pour to your eyes

Suck you like the sap from a tree

Honey from the dew, from the bumblebees, yeah yeah

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

When you say that you are

Forever my star

Could never let you go, no, no

Never let you know

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

So here we are

True superstars

We’re so real from afar and now

Now you’re with us now

And the mouths of babes sing revolution

And the mouths of babes scream disillusion

You can’t break what’s already broken

Cause from the mouths of babes comes nothing

The “dream” was a sham

For saving what you can’t

And now they’re me but I’m not them

I am you and you are me

It’s in the ways I walk thru fire

It’s in the ways of my desire

And when I said that you’re no good

What I meant was I wish you could

Be there forever

Be young forever

I wish you were there

So now I bid farewell

Beyond the bounds of hell

And now you’ll swear you knew us well

Well you can never tell

And the mouths of babes sing revolution

And the mouths of babes scream disillusion

You can’t break what’s already broken

Cause from the mouths of babes comes nothing

Cupid hath pulled back his sweetheart’s bow
To cast divine arrows into her soul
To grab her attention swift and quick
Or morrow the marrow of her bones be thick
With turpentine kisses and mistaken blows
See the devil may do as the devil may care
He loves none sweeter as sweeter the dare
Her mouth the mischief he doth seek
Her heart the captive of which he speaks
So note all ye lovers in love with the sound
Your world be shattered with nary a note
Of one cupids arrow under your coat
And in the land of star crossed lovers
And barren hearted wanderers
Forever lost in forsaken missives and satan’s pull
We seek the unseekable and we speak the unspeakable
Our hopes dead gathering dust to dust
In faith, in compassion, and in love

Ain’t it funny how we pretend we’re still a child
Softly stolen under our blanket skies
And rescue me from me, and all that I believe
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Will you leave me too?
Carve out your heart for keeps in an old oak tree
And hold me for goodbyes-and-whispered lullabyes
And tell me I am still
The man I’m supposed to be
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Will you leave me too?
Too late to turn to turn back now, I’m running out of sound
And I am changing, changing
And if we died right now, this fool you love somehow
Is here with you
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Would you leave me too?

Ten times removed
I forget about where it all began
Bastard son of a bastard son of
A wild eyed child of the sun
And right as rain, I’m not the same but
I feel the same, I feel nothing
Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again
I sensed my loss
Before I even learned to talk
And I remember my birthdays
Empty party afternoons won’t come back
Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again
I forget to forget me
I forget to forget you see
Nothing is important to me
I knew my loss
Before I even learned to speak
And all along, I knew it was wrong
But I played along, with my birthday song
Holding back the fool again
Holding back the fool pretends
I forget to forget nothing is important
Holding back the fool again

Lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Silly, I know I’m silly
Cause I’m hanging in this tree
In the hopes that she will catch a glimpse of me
And thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she…….?
Lily, my one and only
Love is in my heart and in your eyes
Will she or won’t she want him
No one knows for sure
But an officer is knocking at my door
And thru her window shade
I watch her shadow move
I wonder if she could only see me?
And when I’m with her I feel fine
If I could kiss her I wouldn’t mind the time it took to find
My lily, my one and only
I can hardly wait till I see her
Oh lily, I know you love me
Cause as they’re draggin’ me away
I swear I saw her raise her hand and wave (goodbye)

The useless drag of another day
The endless drags of a death rock boy
Mascara sure and lipstick lost
Glitter burned by restless thoughts
Of being forgotten
And in your sad machines
You’ll forever stay
Desperate and displeased-with whoever you are
And you’re a star
Somewhere-he pulls his hair down-over a frowning smile
A hidden diamond you cannot find
A secret star that cannot shine over to you
May the king of gloom, be forever doomed
And in your sad machines
You’ll forever stay
Burning up in speed
Lost inside the dreams, of teen machines
The useless drags, the empty days
The lonely towers of long mistakes
To forgotten faces and faded loves
Sitting still was never enough
And if you’re giving in, then you’re giving up
Cause in your sad machines
You’ll forever stay
Burning up in speed
Lost inside the dreams, of teen machines

Take me down, to the underground

Won't you take me down, to the underground

Why oh why, there is no light

And if I can't sleep, can you hold my life

And all I see is you

Take my hand, I lost where I began

In my heart I know all of my faults

Will you help me understand

And I believe in you

You're the other half of me

Soothe and heal...

When you sleep, when you dream,

I'll be there if you need me, whenever I hear you sing...

There is a sun, it'll come, the sun, I hear them call me down

I held you once, a love that once, and life had just begun

And you're all I see...

And trumpets blew, and angels flew on the other side

And you're all I see, and you're all I'll need

There's a love that god puts in your heart

The early / working title was Country Song.


Hallelujah, I'm in love with a girl from the country

She's got no money just a smile I'm in love with

We go running I don't care where to till the mourning

There's a part of you that never dies I'm in love with

If I give you everything you'll ever need and it all comes down to

Your half smile, country mile, angel child

When night is falling you dream of city lights

You hear them calling you hold my hand and then we

Cry I'm in love with

And I can't find any other way to live and it all comes back to

Your half smile, country mile, angel child

Want you to stay, want you to sway, want you

I'm in love with you

I'm in love with you

And on her doorstep

I saw that I was blind

I'd forsaken

What was mine

What had mattered

Mattered little now

We had shattered

Apart somehow

Ooh

I can't help but stay the same

I remain true to my name

Time to get up

And take the long walk home

For the first time

I go alone

Do you remember

When we first met?

Chasing down the alleyways

Behind my dad's

Ooh

I can't help but stay the same

I remain true to the name

Of lovers past

Good enough to lose

Good enough to choose you, too

Ooh

I can't help but stay the same

Ooh

I remain true to the name

Of lovers past

Good enough to lose

Good enough to choose you, too

Additional Info: "Started as an album song until the very last moment, when Mellon Collies was cut from 31 to 28 songs, this is an interesting interpretation of what had essentially been an acoustic song. Flood and I tried about four different versions before settling on this one [see Queen's Hot Space album]. One version that I liked was just me and a distorted guitar. But in the end this version won, only to be mixed into eternal obscurity as a B-side." -BC (Guitar World 1/97)

I don't look in the mirror

I don't like what I see staring back at me

Everything is clearer

I'll never see what you see

It's not me

So beautiful and free

I'll never be what you need

I can't help it at all

I was born so beautiful

But now I'm ugly

And I rot in my skin

As a piece of me dies everyday

I know I'm nothing

I know there's nothing I can say

To change

The judgement in their ways

I'll never be what you need

I can't help it at all

My love was so beautiful

But now I'm ugly

Yeah...

I'm good enough, but I don't care

I'm good enough, but I'm not there

I'm good enough, but I don't care

The sun is out, but I'm not there

Boredom's in the bathroom shaking out the loose teeth

Sally's in the stirrups claiming her destiny

And nobody nowhere understands anything

About me and all my dreams

Lost at sea

Jack it up judy set your heart alight

Mayfair mistress of the satellites

Misspent youth- faking up a rampage

To hold off the real slaves

Paid off and staid

And what you never knew

Can never get to you

So fake it

I'll be your stumbleine

I'll be your super queen

And make you

Jukebox fuckup hanging round the drugstore

No matter what you say he'll be back for more

Mommy's in the manger with the little kids

She's got her reasons, got my forgets

Of tears and idle threats

Misplaced

And no matter what they do

They can't get to you

So fake it

I'll be your stumbleine

I'll be your super queen

And make you me

Come around ruby I could never sleep alone

I'm never coming back

I'm never giving in

I'll never be the shine in your spit

I disconnect the act

I disconnect the dots

I disconnect the me in me

And you're mistaken, it's you that's faking

Living and breathing and dying too

This message is for anyone who dares to hear a fool

You can't bring me back, you can't bring me back

Cause I give it all back to you

Thru sacred alleys, the living wrecks

Wreak their havoc upon this world

The disenchanted, the romantics,

The body and face and soul of you is gone down that deep black hole

Destroy the mind-destroy the body-but you cannot destroy the heart

And you, you make me so I need to disconnect

And you make it so real

I don't need you love to disconnect

To runaround kids in get-go cars

With vaseline afterbirths and neon coughs

Galaxies full of nobodies

Giving us the farewell runarounds

I took a virgin mary axe to his sweet baby jane,

Lost my innocence to a no good girl,

Scratch my face with anvil hands,

And coil my tongue around a bumblebee mouth

And I give it all back to you

No way, I don't need it, I don't need your love to disconnect

And you make it, so real, I don't need your love to disconnect

No way to disconnect

And you make it so real

I don't need your love to disconnect

No way to disconnect

To my mistakes, to my mistakes of cowardice

She shimmy shakes, the jimmy jakes of consequence

Born of the airs and dues, my airs of madness do declare

That it's ok, it's love

It's what you wanted to see, it's who you wanted to be

For what you needed to need, she'll make it up

Love, it's who you know

Machine gun blues, her vacant rush is so steel

I'm unaware, lost inside your visions

I got mine too over, I got mine and I got you

Cause I know you, you're love

It's what you wanted to see, it's who you wanted to be

For what you needed to need, she'll make it up

Love, it's who you know

Can I look up to you as you look down on me

Can I feel in to you as you felt in to me

I can't help what you see, I can't help but to be

For what you needed to need, she'll make it

Love, it's who you know

As far as you take me, that's where I believe

The realm of soft delusions, floating on the leaves

On a distant shoreline, she waves her arms to me

As all the thought police, are closing in for sleep

The dilly dally, of my bright lit stay

The steam of my misfortunes

Has given me the power to be afraid

And in my mind I'm everyone

And in my mind

Without a care in this whole world

Without a care in this life

It's what you take that makes it right

Porcelina of the oceans blue

In the slipstream, of thoughtless thoughts

The light of all that's good, the light of all that's true

To the fringes gladly, I walk unadorned

With gods and their creations

With filth and disease

Porcelina, she waits for me there

With seashell hissing lullabyes

And whispers fathomed deep inside my own

Hidden thoughts and alibis

My secret thoughts come alive

Without a care in this whole world

Without a care in this life

It's what you take that makes it right

And in my mind I'm everyone

In my mind I'm everyone of you

You make it right

It's all allright

You make it right

Additional Info: A Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness outtake played at the Double Door shows in February 1995. There were lines that were not performed on either live recording, "we are held to truths that are bigger than us all, hung like bats of doom waiting on the walls." Also featured as a clip in Pastichio Medley (10:16-10:39).

All the worlds that we possess

Are slipping thru our hands

Chances are we'll not return

To know or understand

But from the same self ether springs

The flowers of which your garden grows

As the gods breathe their sweetened breath

Upon the backs of us all

Can you feel it?

In your bones

Can you feel it?

On your own

I am just a question mark

Hanging on the wall

Choke me back with inspirations

Too numerous to care

Come on in the water's warm

We're waiting for you now

Take the plunge you can't escape

The feelings if you dare

Can you feel it?

In your bones

Can you feel it?

On your own

And on my own, I can't escape you all

And on my own, I can't escape you all

And on my own, I can't escape you all

Everything I give to you

I give it for myself

Everything I need from you

I need it for myself

Everything I take from you

I take it for myself

Everything I want from you

I want it for myself

Can you feel it?

In your bones

Can you feel it?

On your own

And on my own, I can't escape you all

And on my own, I can't escape you all

'Cause on my own, I can't escape you all

And on my own, I can't escape you all

God is as helpless as me

Caught in the negatives

We all just do as we please

False transmissions

I hope god forgives me

For my transgressions

It's what you want

To know no consequences

It's what you need

To fucking bleed

It's all too much

Full of piss and vinegar

God knows we sow what we reap

In the dirt of grandeur

When the darkness comes to me

And it fixes its gaze on me

I fear that I am ordinary, just like everyone

To lie here and die among the sorrows

Adrift among the days

For everything I ever said

And everything I've ever done is gone and dead

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

My life has been extraordinary

Blessed and cursed and won

Time heals but I'm forever broken

By and by the way...

Have you ever heard the words

I'm singing in these song?

It's for the girl I've loved all along

Can a taste of love be so wrong

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

And in my mind as I was floating

Far above the clouds

Some children laughed I'd fall for certain

For thinking that I'd last forever

But I knew exactly where I was

And I knew the meaning of it all

And I knew the the distance to the sun

And I knew the echo that is love

And I knew the secrets in your spires

And I knew the emptiness of youth

And I knew the solitude of heart

And I knew the murmurs of the soul

And the world is drawn into your hands

And the world is etched upon your heart

And the world so hard to understand

Is world you can't live without

And I knew the silence of the world

The world is a vampire, sent to drain

Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames

And what do I get, for my pain

Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game

Even though I know-i suppose I'll show

All my cool and cold-like old job

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Now I'm naked, nothing but an animal

But can you fake it, for just one more show

And what do you want, I want to change

And what have you got

When you feel the same

Even though I know-i suppose I'll show

All my cool and cold-like old job

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

Tell me I'm the only one

Tell me there's no other one

Jesus was an only son

Tell me I'm the chosen one

Jesus was an only son for you

Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

And I still believe that I cannot be saved

My reflection, dirty mirror

There's no connection to myself

I'm your lover, I'm your zero

I'm the face in your dreams of glass

So save your prayers

For when we're really gonna need 'em

Throw out your cares and fly

Wanna go for a ride?

She's the one for me

She's all I really need

Cause she's the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness

And cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me

Intoxicated with the madness, I'm in love with my sadness

Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms

The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth

I never let on, that I was on a sinking ship

I never let on that I was down

You blame yourself, for what you can't ignore

You blame yourself for wanting more

Nothing here ever lasts

Nothing but memories

Of what never was

We're nowhere, we're nowhere, we're nowhere to be

So sick I wish I'd die

Down in the belly of the beast

Lost I'll stay

Between your hands and my belief

And here I am, frail

Frail and bedazzled from all the glare

Tug at my sleeve

Stole my smile from a cheshire cat

You know I hate to say it

Oh no, I always stay

I don't wanna be like the others please

Who's sorry now

Who's sorry now

If I show you how

Will you let me down

Slit my wrists and die a whore

Love to love to love what you adore

I can give you anything

But please let me be your everything, please

Yeah, yeah

You know I hate to say it

Oh no, I always stay

I don't wanna be like the others please

Who's sorry now

If I show you how

Will you let me down

Will you let me down

Who's sorry now

Who's sorry now

My love is weakness

My love is oh so wrong

My love is sadness

My love is oh so strong

My teeth are razor sharp

My back is fucking strong

I'll be with you

But not for long

No, no

You know I hate to say it

Oh no, I always stay

I don't wanna be like the others please

Who's sorry now

Who's sorry now

Who's sorry now

If I show you how

Will you let me down

Will you let me down

Please let me down

Please let me down
