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

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face
Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out
Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings
Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you
Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

You and me

Meant to be

Immutable

Impossible

It’s destiny

Pure lunacy

Incalculable

Inseparable

And for the last time

You’re everything that I want and asked for

You’re all that I dream

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

Protected and the lover of

A pure soul

And beautiful

You

Don’t understand

Don’t feel me now

I will breath

For the both of us

Travel the world

Traverse the skies

Your home is here

Within my heart

And for the first time

I feel as though I am reborn in my mind

Recast as child and mystic sage

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

For the first time

I’m telling how much I need and bleed for

Your every move and waking sound in my time

I’ll wrap my wrap my wire around your heart

And your mind

You’re mine forever now

Who wouldn’t be the one you love and live for

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love and die for

Who wouldn’t be the one you love

Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humour me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can’t be late, supper’s waiting on the table
Tomorrow’s just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again
I know I’ll make it, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you
And for a moment I lose myself
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world
I’ve journeyed here and there and back again
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends
Mysteries not ready to reveal
Sympathies I’m ready to return
I’ll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow’s just an excuse
And you can make it last, forever you
You can make it last, forever you

Twilight fades through blistered avalon

The sky’s cruel torch on aching autobahn

Into the uncertain divine

We scream into the last divide

You make me real

You make me real

Strong as I feel

You make me real

Sheila rides on crashing nightingale

Intake eyes leave passing vapor trails

With blushing brilliance alive

Because it’s time to arrive

You make me real

You make me real

Strong as I feel

You make me real

Lately I just can’t seem to believe

Discard my friends to change the scenery

It meant the world to hold a bruising faith

But now it’s just a matter of grace

A summer storm graces all of me

Highway warm sing silent poetry

I could bring you the light

And take you home into the night

You make me real / lately I just can’t seem to believe

You make me real / discard my friends to change the scenery

Strong as I feel / it meant the world to hold a bruising faith

You make me real / but now it’s just a matter of grace

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

I send my echo out

To get your love without

Obscured reflections of

My love

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

I’ll save a prayer for you

So lost and longing too

Be dragged through dirty streets

Wrapped up in clean white sheets

And if you think they’ll watch you now

You should know they won’t

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

I send my echo out

To get your love without

Obscure reflections of

Of my secret love

Force down the words about

To get your love without

Obscured reflections of my love

And I’m just trying to talk to you

Between the raindrops

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

Shattering fast
I’m glass, I’m glass
I’m shattering fast
I’m glass, I’m glass
I’m shattering, shattering
Glass, glass, glass
I’m shattering fast
I’m glass, I’m glass
I’ve got a lot of tears
In a blood-stained jar
It’s been a real long time
Since I walked the fine line
You put up the walls
You put up the walls
And hold all my calls
I’ll be by the pool
Won’t you please
Worship me
And won’t you love
What I adore
All alone
In my soul
I betrayed
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Everybody knows I’m last, I’m last
And everybody knows I’m fast, I’m fast
I’m shattering, shattering
Glass, glass, glass
I’m shattering fast
I’m glass, I’m glass
You put up the walls
And hold all my calls
‘Cause I’ll be by the pool
Playing with my guns
‘Cause there’s nowhere to run
‘Cause I’m the one you love now
Staying after school
Breaking all your rules
Shattering fast
Shattering glass
Shattering last
I’m shattering glass

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Now you know where I’ve been

As you sleep, torn I am

Weighted down patiently

Born of love

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

I’m just living in my head

Forever waiting on the ways of your desire

You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch

Forbidden thought

We can never have enough

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Found below, the creatures scream

Stranglehold, a god machine

Begin to tear us out

What is hell

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

I’m just the tears inside your head

Forever waiting on the ways of your desire

You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch

Forbidden thought

We can never have enough

You know I’m not dead

We all want to hold in the everlasting gaze

Enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway

But underneath the wheels lie the skulls of every cog

The fickle fascination of an everlasting god

You know I’m not dead

I’m just living in my head

Forever waiting

Forever waiting a cruel death

You know I’m not dead

I’m just living for myself

Forever waiting

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

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

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
And you may ask yourself, how do I work this
And you may ask yourself, where is that large automobile
And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house
And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was
Water dissolving, and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
And you may ask yourself, what is that beautiful house
And you may ask yourself, where does that highway go
And you may ask yourself, am I right, am I wrong
And you may tell yourself, my god, what have I done
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was

Speed kills, but beauty lives forever

Speed thrills, but beauty knows your name

I fell ill inside eternal winter, winter

And stood still beside eternal flame

And when I ride

With you tonight

We can move

At the speed of light

With all I’d asked

And all I’d pray

The last rose of summer would stay

First time that I ever saw you

Crashing hard thru days of pain

You were one of god’s children

Left to cry out in the rain

Waiting to be saved again

‘Cause when I ride

With you tonight

We can move

At the speed of light

And all I’d ask

And all I pray

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer is gone

Long gone, gone

The last rose of summer is gone

When I ride

With you tonight

We can move

At the speed of light

Forever young

Forever blind

Into the stars

We rock tonight

Last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer is gone

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer

The last rose of summer is gone

Hey kids, it’s no use sleepin’

Lost out, summertime blues

Jump up and die in your blue suede shoes

Hey kids, rock and roll

Still looking for that blue jean baby queen

Prettiest girl I’ve ever seen

See her die on my movie screens every day

If I were real
Would you survive
What would you feel
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
As sentimental as our broken dreams
Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die to save your soul
Let me die, let me die rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me go rock and roll

We’re the metal, in their metal machines

Would my records sell
Could you even tell

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who’s left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you

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

What’s our mission

Do we know

But never listen

For too long

They held me under

But I hear

It’s almost over

In detroit

On a memphis train

Like you said

It’s down in the heat and the summer rain of

The automatic gauze of your memories

Down in the sleep at the airplane races

Try to hold on

To this heart

A little bit longer

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

Try to hold on

For this heart’s

A little bit colder

Try to hold on

To this love

Paperback scrawl your hidden poem

Written around the dried out flowers

Here we are still trading places

To try to hold on

Pop tart

Can you envision

A free world

Of clear division

For too long

They held us under

But I know

We’re getting over

In detroit

With the nashville tears

Like you said

It’s down in the heat with the broken numbers

Down in the gaze of solemnity

Down in the way you held together

To try to hold on

To this heart

A little bit closer

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

Try to hold on

For this heart’s

A little bit older

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

And we are still alive

Try to hold on

And we have survived

Try to hold on

And no one should deny

We try to hold on

To the pulse of a feedback current

Into the flow of the cryptic movement

Slapback kills the ancient remnants

That try to hold on

Try to hold on

To this heart

Alive

Try to hold on

To this love

Aloud

Try to hold on

And we are still alive

Try to hold on

And we have survived

Try to hold on

Pop tart

You never listen

Skinned knees

Try to hold on

Stop start

What’s our mission

Skinned knees

Try to hold on

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You’ve traveled very far
Just to see you I’ll come around
When I’m down
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream (on some versions, “scream”)
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are
All of those yesterdays
Coming around
Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?
Yesterday the sky was you
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same
I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will
Goodbye

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

Porcelina of the oceans blue

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed, drove the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
Stop sign told me stay at home
Told me you were not alone
Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to hurt anyone
In bed I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
You haven’t changed, you’re still the same
May you rise as you fall
You were easy, you are forgotten
You are the ways of my mistakes
I catch the rainfall through the leaking roof
That you had left behind
You remind me of that leak in my soul
The rain falls, my friends call
Leaking rain on the phone
Take a day, plant some trees
May they shade you from me
May your children play beneath
Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed, drove the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
But there I was picking pieces up
You are a ghost of my indecision
No more, little girl

It’s you that I adore
You will always be my whore
You’ll be a mother to my child
And a child to my heart
We must never be apart
We must never be apart
Lovely girl you’re the beauty in my world
Without you there aren’t reasons left to find
And I’ll pull your crooked teeth
You’ll be perfect just like me
You’ll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head
We must never be apart
We must never be apart
Lovely girl you’re the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I’ve left to die
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever leave behind
In time
In you I see dirty
In you I count stars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste god
In you I feel so hungry
In you I crash cars
We must never be apart
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever seek to find
Lovely girl you’re the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I’ve left behind
In time
We must never be apart
And you’ll always be my whore
Cause you’re the one that I adore
And I’ll pull your crooked teeth
You’ll be perfect just like me
In you I feel so dirty in you I crash cars
In you I feel so pretty in you I taste god
We must never be apart

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

Radio, play my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, I’m alone
Radio
Radio, please don’t go
Radio
I peer through curtains on empty streets
Behind a wall of caller I.d.
No one’s out there
To hear if I care
About the troubles in the air
As I of the mourning now come
Pick up where my thoughts left off
Cause I’m home to die on my own
As my radio plays my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, don’t you know
Radio, radio
Radio, I’m alone
I’ve blown the dust off my guitars
In the attic with the stars
I read your letters to feel better
My tears upon the fading ink
Cause I of the mourning now come
Pick up where my thoughts left off
Cause I’m home to die on my own
As my radio plays my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, I’m alone
Radio, radio
Radio, please don’t go
I sit in the dark light
To wait for ghost night
To bring the past alive
To make a toast to life
Cause I have survived
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want to change
Radio, radio, radio, radio
Radio, radio, radio, radio
Radio, radio, radio, radio
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want to change

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli
We fight our country’s battles
On the land as on the sea
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine
Our flag’s unfurl’d to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun
In the snow of far-off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines
Here’s health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we’ve fought for life
And never lost our nerve
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines
