To the center of the earth
Or anywhere god decides
Full of fever pulling forth
We hear our call as all
And to the center of the earth
As if written in
And dna is reaching out
To your frequency
I want to live
And don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
All in prayer
Prayer in all
All are scared
Scared of all
Black rooms are calling
To men in leather coats
White labs are cooking
Up the silver ghost
The glass migrates under
Her translucent skin
And all the spiders wonder
What we’ve got us in
All is you
You are all
All with you
You in all
I want to live
I don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
So, it’s all very obtuse
Because it’s all like, like, I don’t know
So, like, I started thinking
That everything I operate on
Is based on what I believe god was telling me to do
God could be my intuition or whatever
But I always assume
I always assume that the voice I hear is the voice of god
Then I started thinking
What if I’m insane
So I’m operating on the premise
That I’m hearing the voice of god
Or what I perceive to be god speaking to me
Or through me
But maybe I’m completely in…
So all my…
Demagoguery in my life about me thinking that my life has importance
My, my..
Thinking that my life has importance
My, my, my thought of it
And the fact that I believe that I’m following my intuition
Which in and of itself may be completely false
So then I started freaking out thinking…
Of itself may be completely false
And again this creature that believes that he’s acting upon
Heavenly intuition, but meanwhile he’s totally rampant
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
So beats the final coda
Of our vinyl storm
One more cherry cola
To lift up her dead arms
A dream of soft focus sunsets
Filters through the din
We are losing contact
As she dials it in
She can hear glass calling
Or is it someone that looks like him
She eyes TV reflection
And nods a knowing look
She says it doesn’t matter
She’d never liked her looks
I have seen a thousand fractures
I have seen everything
Cause knowing is its own answer
Love something in a book
There’s not much left to ponder
Not much left to cook
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders, oh

Time is never time at all

You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth

And our lives are forever changed

We will never be the same

The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe

That life can change, that you’re not stuck in vain

We’re not the same, we’re different tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

And you know you’re never sure

But you’re sure you could be right

If you held yourself up to the light

And the embers never fade in your city by the lake

The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe

In the resolute urgency of now

And if you believe there’s not a tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

We’ll crucify the insincere tonight

We’ll make things right, we’ll feel it all tonight

We’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight

The indescribable moments of your life tonight

The impossible is possible tonight

Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

I lie, I wait
I stop, I hesitate
I am, I breathe
I meant, I think of me
Is it any wonder I can’t sleep?
All I have is all you gave to me
Is it any wonder I found peace through you?
Turn to the gates of heaven, to myself be damned
Turn away from light
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough
I taste, I love
I come, I bleed enough
I hate, I’m not
I was, I want too much
Is it any wonder I can’t sleep?
All I have is all you gave to me
Is it any wonder I found peace through you?
Turn to the gates of heaven, to myself be damned
Turn away from light
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch
It’s not enough, just a touch

This is a song for a son
This is a song for a sailor
The son I never had
This is a song for a kid
This is a song for a tailor
Who stitched up my old heart
Who stitched up my old heart
This is a song for a dog
This is a song for a blown-out bird
The kind that don’t return to the nest
This is a song for a star
This is a song for a space invader
Who flew into the sun
Never to return
Never to return
And I am one of many
Many more to come
Many more to come
I am one of many more
Many more to come
Many more to come
This is a song for a son
This is a song for a sailor
The best I ever had
He sailed without a map
This is a song for that kid
This is a song for that tailor
Who stitched up my old heart
Who stitched up my old heart
And broke it all apart
I am one of many
Many more to come
Many more to come
I am one of many more
Many more to come
Many more to come
You daughters of the revolution
Carry back your sons
Carry them back home
You daughters of the revolution
Carry back your sons
Carry them back home
And I, I am one of many
Many more to come
Many more to come

If I was to listen I’d turn back
Give up on my reasons
Forgive up the past
You think I’d swallow that?
Bearing weight in ceilings
Just to stop and ask of Thora Zine
Thora Zine, Thora Zine, Thora Zine
They give you this
They take away that
Thora Zine
There’ll be no others
There’ll be no long lost friends
Empty on the insides
Empty of a last pretense
To stand by on feeling of the end
So many lives
A runaway life
So many lies
When they locked you up they shut me out
Gave me the key so I could show you round
Yet we were not allowed
Omens of the daydream
But caught as you’re bound in Thora Zine
Thora Zine, Thora Zine, Thora Zine
They give you this
They take away that
Thora Zine
There’ll be no rallies
There’ll be no long lost friends
Caught on a spotlight running out of present tense
To fix by a feeling of an end
So many lives
A runaway life
Please come back
Please come back
Please come back Pale Horse
Please come back
Please come back
Please come back Pale Horse
Please come back
Please come back
Please come back Pale Horse
Please come back
Please come back
Please come back Pale Horse

For your love
For your love, for your love
For your love
For your love, for your love
I’ll knock ’em down kid
And set ’em up
For your love, for your love
Far and wide, sis
I let this slide
For your love, for your love
For your love I’ll disappear
I’ll let you forget my touch
For your love I’ll press my luck
I’ll let you think you’ve won
For your love
For your love, for your love
For your love
For your love, for your love
Do you see my smile, kid
And know it’s honest
For your love, for your love
‘Cause off and on, kid
I’ll never stop
For your love, for your love
For your love I’ll dig a hole
I’ll dig till my hands bleed
For your love I’ll fill that hole
With girls in pearls and weeds
For your love, for your love
For your love, for your love
For your love, for your love
For your love, for your love
Ask me, and I’ll tell you
It’s all a lie that’s in my mind
The prairies, the valleys
This lonesome town we drive around
For your love
For your love
For your love
For your love
For your love
For your love
For your love
For your love, for your love
For your love

Mother moon
Mistress of the sun, say
I got you, I got you
Sister soul
Lovers of the tune, sing!
I got you, I got you, I got you
Floating away I think I’ll stay as refused
Floating away I think I’ll stay blue-black
Floating away I think I’ll change next to you
Finding a way to make the loss seem new
Cause you don’t deserve me
But I deserve you

Mother moon
Mistress of the sun, say
I got you, I got you
Sister soul
Lovers of the tune, sing!
I got you
I got you
Mother moon
Mistress of the sun, say
I got you, I got you, oh I’ve got you
I got you, I’ve got you mother moon
Floating away I think I’ll stay as refused
Finding a way to make the loss seem new
Floating away I think I’ll change next to you
Finding a way to make the loss seem new
Cause you don’t deserve me
But I deserve you
Flies for the may queen
But life for the prince
If nobody wins
Then what gets lost?
If I’ve got you

Shakedown 1979
Cool kids never have the time
On a live wire
Right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we’d never see an end to it all
And I don’t even care
To shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
Into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They’re not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slippin’ dues
Down to see
That we don’t even care
As restless as we are
We feel the pull
In the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement
Lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we’d go
Beneath the sound of hope
Justine never knew the rules
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made
I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don’t even care
To shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
Into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of now (written: sound)
As you can see there’s no one around
