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

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

I know

We’re just like old friends

We just can’t pretend

That lovers make amends

We are

Reasons so unreal

We can’t help but feel

That something has been lost

But please

You know you’re just like me

Next time

I promise we’ll be perfect

Perfect

Perfect

Strangers down the line

Lovers out of time

Memories unwind

So far I still know who you are

But now I wonder who I was

Angel

You know it’s not the end

We’ll always be good friends

But the letters have been sent on

So please

You always were so free

You’ll see

I promise we’ll be perfect

Perfect

Perfect

Strangers when we meet

Strangers on the street

Lovers while we sleep

Perfect

You know this has to be

We always were so free

We promised that we’d be

Perfect

With the sugar sickness
You spy the kidnap kid
Who kids you to oblivion
It’s the perfect hassle
For the perfumed kiss
He makes you miss him more than home
You love him
You love him more than this
You love him
And you cannot, you can’t resist
You love him
You love him for yourself
You love him
And no one, no one else
Past sidewalk ashes
A last lovers arc
You come apart to intertwine
It was all so simple
As you watched him move
Across the darkness in your room
You love him
You love him for yourself
You love him
And no one, no one else
And to the winding vines
The pretty boys dive
And thru the pinhole stars
Into the shadow mind
Will you lose him then
On some gentle dawn
This boy is here and gone
You love him
You love him for yourself
You love him
And no one, no one else
You love him
You love him more than this
You love him
And you cannot, you can’t resist
You love him

Mother I’m tired

Come surrender my son

Time has ravaged on my soul

No plans to leave but still I go

Fallin’ with the leaves

Fallin’ out of sleep

To the last goodbyes

Who cares why?

Mother I’ve tried

Wasting my life

I haven’t given up, I lie

To make you so proud in my eyes

Fallin’ out of sleep

Crawlin’ over me

To the last goodbyes

Who cares why?

Tuesdays come and gone

Restless still I drive

Try to leave it all behind

Fallin’, fallin’ out of sleep

Fallin’, fallin’ with the leaves

I got crawlin’, crawlin’ over me

Once upon a time in my life…

I went falling

Mother I hope you know

That I miss you so

Time has ravaged on my soul

To wipe a mother’s tears grown cold

The lights came on fast

Lost in motorcrash

Gone in a flash unreal

But you knew all along

You laugh the light I sing the songs

To watch you numb

I saw you there

You were on your way

You held the rain

And for the first time heaven seemed insane

Cause heaven is to blame

For taking you away

Do you know the way that I can?

Do you know the way that I can’t lose?

Do you know the things that I can?

Do you know the things that I can’t do?

Where is your heart?

Where is your heart gone to?

Tear me apart

Tear me apart from you

You laugh the light I cry the wound

In grey afternoons

I saw you there

You were on your way

You kissed me cold

And for the first time heaven seemed insane

For taking you away

Cause heaven is to blame

For taking you away

The lights came to pass

Dead opera motorcrash

Gone in a flash unreal

In nitrous overcast

Do you know the way that I can?

Do you know the way that I can’t choose?

Do you know the things that I can?

Do you know the things that I can’t lose?

Tear me apart

Tear me apart from you

Where is your heart?

Where has your heart run to?

Who am I
To need you when I’m down
And where are you
When I need you around
Your life is not your own
And all I ask you is for another chance
Another way around you
To live by circumstance
Once again
Who am I to need you now
To ask you why, to tell you no
To deserve your love and sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me
And you may go
But I know you won’t leave
Too many years
Built into memories
Your life is not your own
Who am I to need you now
To ask you why, to tell you no
To deserve your love and sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me
Who am I to you?
Along the way I lost my faith
And as you were you’ll be again
To mold like clay, to break like dirt
To tear me up in your sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me
You were never meant to belong to me
You were never meant to belong to me
Who am I?

What if the sun refused to shine?
What if the clouds refused to rain?
What if the wind refused to blow?
What if the seas refused to wave?
What if the world refused its turn?
What if the stars would hesitate?
What if what is isn’t true?
What are you going to do?
What if what is isn’t you?
Does that mean you’ve got to lose?
Digging for the feel of something new
What if the silence let you dream?
What if the air could let you breathe?
What if the words would bring you here?
What if this sound could bring you peace?
What if what is isn’t true?
What are you gonna do?
Digging for the feel of something new
What if what is isn’t you?
What are you gonna do?
It came from your thoughts
Your dreams and visions
Ripped up from your weeks
And indecisions
What if the sun refused to shine?
What if the clouds refused to rain?
What if the world refused its turn?
What if the clocks would hesitate?
What if what is isn’t true?
What are you gonna do?
What if what is isn’t you?
Does that mean you’ve got to lose?
Digging for the feel of something new
Does that mean you’ve got to choose?
The feel of something new
Does that mean you’ve got to lose?
The thoughts you cannot use
What are you gonna do?

Kiss and kill me sweetly

Come and drive me home

Drag the miles in me

I am yours alone

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself in two

In two

Into you

Desire me so deeply

Drain and kick me hard

Whisper secrets for me

Try to go too far

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself in two

In two

Into…

Please don’t change

Please don’t change at all

Bring your rain

Bring your rain to fall

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself in two

In two

Into you

Come and kiss me sweetly

Ride the telephone

Drag the miles to me

I am yours alone

Yours alone

Yours alone on the telephone

Yours alone looking for a kiss kiss

Yours alone

Dusty screams

Through doors and imaginary floors

“Why can’t you miss me?”

Pistol pete

Removes the final breaths from her unkind

And she is shaken

What does this mean

In love or in peace?

With you lying next to me

So faithless serene

And she calls to him

Let the waste

Cross the ancient trails to you

Far out

Beneath the sorrow clouds

Let them taste

The bitter lost mistake of you

Let them cry out

Through your rusted scars

Alone he roams

Inside the ordinary catacombs

Of her waiting

With raven hands

She steals and staggers towards her man

Still scorned by his demon

Because he’s undone

Become the language of

Disaster and love

Vengeance and dust

And she calls to him

Let the waste

Cross the ancient trails to you

Far out

Beneath the sorrow clouds

Let them taste

The bitter lost mistake of you

Let them cry out

Through your rusted scars

Dusty screams

Through doors and imaginary scenes

Of hurt and teardrop

As he holds her down

In the cold lonely winds

Together again

Her inside him

And she calls to him

Let the waste

Cross the ancient trails to you

Far out

Beneath the sorrow clouds

Let them taste

The bitter lost mistake of you

Let them cry out

Through your rusted scars

Amphetamine Annie-Dog
Has her leash and a face
Her velvet spleen, her shackle spine
Her diamond curse, it comes with mine
A vessel she for violent I
Confession arms awake
Mine mine, your were always mine
Possessed by my taste
And below the angel dog
Combs her hair and sings her psalms
The bombs go off, she doesn’t notice
It all goes wrong, she sets things tragic
She is Venus, she is Mars
She’s electric, and the struggle of
Upon her face we leave no trace
But in her stomach mercury aged
She holds the blood, she carves the knives
She digs the wires in our babies
Amphetamine Annie-Dog
Pulls her trash and her stories
From place to place and bed to bed
Gives of herself and the magnet head
Another floor, another ceiling
Counting stars with double meanings
Is it wrong to be swallowed whole
To disappear in her
To give to her the priceless peace
Of giving up control
We tumble out into the streets
And Annie-dog, she drags her leash
Pretty face, ugly mouth
Bitter bred and so released
And by the no and in the yes
Annie goes if you couldn’t guess
A simple man, a sycophant
Her elephant with the laughing cough
She wants clean sheets and fresh flowers
Her dental shots and the Hong Kong glue
Amphetamine Annie-Dog
Has her leash and a face

You’re gonna walk on home

You’re gonna walk alone

You’re gonna see this through

Don’t let them get to you

Shame

Love is good and love is kind

Love is drunk and love is blind

Love is good and love is mine

Love is drunk all the time

Shame

You’re gonna walk on home

You’re gonna walk alone

You’re gonna walk so far

You’re gonna wonder who you are

Shame

Love is good and love is kind

Love is drunk and love is blind

Love is good and love is mine

Love is good all the time

Hello goodbye

You know you made us cry

I’ve faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
Appease you
The wind blows, and I know
I can’t go on digging roses from your grave
To linger on beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep and the whirlpools sleep
You’ll find me
The coarse tide reflects the sky
And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on
What I fear is lost here
The wind blows and I know
All you have to do is run away
And steal yourself from me
Become mystery to gaze into
You’re so cruel in all you do
But still I believe, I believe
You
So may you come with your own knives
You’ll never take me alive
With all the force of what is true
Is there nothing I can do?
I can’t go on digging roses from your grave
To linger on beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep and the whirlpools sleep
You’ll find me
And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on
I’ve face the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
To hold the flower I can’t keep

Whenever I run
Wherever I run to you lost
It’s never done
Just hanging on
The past has let me be
Returning as if dream
Shattered as belief
If you have to go, don’t say goodbye
If you have to go, don’t you cry
If you have to go, I will get by
Someday I’ll follow you and see you on the other side
But for the grace of love
I’d will the meaning of
Heaven from above
But for the grace of love
I’d will the meaning of
Heaven from above
Your picture out of time
Left aching in my mind
Shadows kept alive
If you have to go, don’t say goodbye
If you have to go, don’t you cry
If you have to go, I will get by
I will follow you and see you on the other side
But for the grace of love
Who’d will the meaning of
Heaven from above
Long horses we are born
Creatures more than torn
Mourning our way home

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
