Info from Wikipedia about this release:

“Rarities and B-Sides is an almost complete compilation of all officially released b-sides, outtakes, and demos by The Smashing Pumpkins. According to EMI, this compilation is ‘available as a digital download only and can be found at iTunes or any other digital service provider web-site.’ Most of these tracks can be found on previous b-side/live/demo releases, such as, Pisces Iscariot, Judas 0, The Aeroplane Flies High, and Earphoria. The release is notable however for offering the first digital releases of seven tracks that were previously only available commercially on vinyl.

The songs “Bullet Train To Osaka,” “Terrapin,” “Siamese Dream,” “Purr Snickety,” “Not Worth Asking,” “Honeyspider II” and “Infinite Sadness” were all only available on vinyl until this release. The original “Honeyspider,” as well as, the original single versions of “Tristessa” and “I Am One” were not included on this compilation, because they are owned by Sub Pop Records and not EMI.

Also, “My Dahlia” and “Sun”, the first commercially issued Smashing Pumpkins recordings, were not included in this compilation, probably due to licensing issues. They appeared on the Light Into Dark vinyl only album, which only had a thousand copies pressed back in 1989.

This digital compilation also does not include the 1989 demo Daughter, which was released as a flexi disc single which was only available to Reflex Magazine subscribers.

Additionally, seven official remixes of Smashing Pumpkins songs were excluded from the compilation. These include “Moby Mix” and “Cement Mix” from the 1979 Mixes single and the entire The End Is the Beginning Is the End Remixes single.”

In addition to this Wikipedia info, SPfreaks can tell you quite a few more vinyl and CD rarities were excluded unfortunately: Honeyspider, Jackie Blue, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, some rarities from Pisces Iscariot (Frail & Bedazzled, Whir, La Dolly Vita, Spaced), 3 more The End Is The Beginning Is The End remixes (there are 8 instead of 5), Perfect (Electro Breakbeat Dub), Real Love (from Greatest Hits’ bonusdisc Judas O), Untitled single’s b-sides Try, Try, Try (Alternate Version) and Age Of Innocence (Early Version), and Silverfuck from Earphoria.

The complete Rarities and B-sides release clocks in at over 8 hours in length, and is worthwhile getting for the fan that appreciates digital only music for iPod, MP3-player etc. We advise you to check multiple online sources before downloading this release as prices can vary dramatically.

Ice cream snow
See you in June
Could have known
I would reveal
Should have known
I would conceal your way
She knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows

See you in June

Hey blue, all your love is strange
Come out with all those crazy names
So true when you lie
For you, blue
Right or wrong
I belong
Right or wrong
Hey blue, where’d you run to now?
Miss you since they found you out
I’ve been waiting such a long time
For your smile, for you, blue
I lay with you this velvet morning
Stay with me for a while
Where we run to is up to you
Just stay with me for a while

I spin off and lose my head

Throwing stray a spark instead

Gather strength down in my heel

And dig it in the world I peel

Way down deep within my heart

Lies a soul that’s torn apart

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

Don’t want to live in your misery

I don’t live – I inhale

Sprinkle all my kisses on your head

Stars full of wishes fill our beds

She said, “I’m dead”

All this pain smothers me

Like a bomb that you can’t see

Tell me, tell me what your after

I just want to get there faster

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t give – I unveil

I don’t live – I inhale

I don’t live

Well I met a girl called Sandoz
And she taught me many many things
Good things, very good things
Sweet things
I met her on a sunny morning
It was hot but the snow lay on the ground
Strange things, very strange things
My mind has wings
Sandoz, Sandoz you taught me love
Sandoz, Sandoz you taught me love
Will you tell me why
We could all learn something from your mind
She is very old, you many think she’s young
One kiss from her and you know your time has come
Good times for all time
Sandoz

Smiley, where have you been?

Smiley, it's such a sin to say

You're gonna dream your life away

Knew a man who couldn't make it

On a bended knee

All his friends were simple prophets

Only if you bleed

And he'll bleed

On his knees

Smiley, where have you been?

Smiley, it's such a sin to say

You're gonna dream your life away

Your love won't change

Come back to stay

Smiley, smiley, smiley, smiley

Smiley, smiley, smiley, smiley

And you

If I'm smilin'

Then I'm tryin'

I am one as you are three

Try to find messiah in your trinity

Your city to burn

Your city to burn

Try to look for something

In your city to burn, you'll burn

Am I as I seem?

I'm down

Down, so down

Time is right for a guiding light

Try to turn to reasons in your bitter life

Your city to burn

Your city to burn

Try to look for something

In your city to burn, you'll burn

See you, don't you just want to

See you, I am one

See you, don't you just want to

See you

See you, don't you just want to

See you, I am one

See you, don't you just want to

Oh yeah, another day

Oh yeah, gotta play

My boredom has outshined the sun

It’s so down low

I just want to have some little fun

Oh yeah, another day

Oh yeah, what a waste

Additional Info: From 5:27-30, "listen for the police car go by" (Billy Corgan on Pisces Iscariot liner notes). "I met this girl in Dallas when we were on tour with the chili peppa's and that was where I got the idea for the name for the song because when she said her name I thought wow, what a great title for a song. 2 1/4 years later I run into this same girl at a party and I say did you hear that song we recorded using your name, Starla? And she said, no my name is Darla but hey Starla, Darla whatever it doesn't matter, so there you go. Never trust a girl who ends up with well I can't say." (Billy Corgan on Pisces Iscariot liner notes).

I’m in here

Please take me home

Starla dear, I’m all alone

When you can’t decide what’s on your mind, it’s clear

I’m near

Starla dear

To disappear takes some more time

Starla dear, you’re on my mind

Soon, soon I’ll be leaving

Soon, soon I’ll be leaving

I hear all you’re saying

I hear all you’re failing

I’m in here

Please take me home

Starla dear, I’m all alone

When you can’t decide what’s on your mind, it’s clear

I’m here

Starla dear

Serve yourself

No one else can do for you like you

No one else fails like me

In my eyes I burn alive

Fly like a bird

No more words just you and I

High in the sky

I really love you, and I mean you,
The star above you, crystal blue
Well, oh baby, my hair’s on end about you
I wouldn’t see you, and I love to,
I fly above you, yes I do,
Well, oh baby my hair’s on end about you
Floating, bumping, noses dodge a tooth
The fins a luminous
Fangs all ’round the clown is dark
Below the boulders hiding
All the sunlight’s good for us
Cause we’re the fishes, and all we do
The move about is all we do
Well oh baby my hair’s on end about you

Well, oh baby, my hair’s on end about you

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

You know it will come true
And if you need her
You know that she’ll be there
Stay awake, I lie here
With her and I fall
And when I wake inside you
I know you know I’m yours
Blew, blew away
But I don’t wanna fade
Blew, blew
And if you’re sad, too
Until the angel sings and touches you
Don’t confuse my only life
As it blew, and please don’t ever leave
And I will grieve, and remember thee
Hope to meet you there
And I wanna let her know
That I won’t let her go
I wanna let her know
That I love her so
I’m blew, blew, blew away
But I don’t wanna
Blew, I love you

I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And I saw my reflection in a snow covered hill
Till the landslide brought it down
Mirror in the sky, what is love
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life
Well, I’ve been afraid of changing ’cause I’ve
Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older too
Well, I’ve been afraid of changing ’cause I’ve
Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older too

I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And if you see my reflection in a snow covered hill
The landslide brought it down

When I passed you in the doorway
You took me with a glance
Should have took that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance
Now we were steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
Father says “he’s going crazy”
Says I’m livin’ in a trance,
Dancing in the moonlight
It’s caught me in it’s spotlight,
It’s alright, it’s alright, the moonlight
This long, hot summer night
It’s three o’clock in the morning, I’m on the streets again
Disobeyed another warning, Shoulda been home by ten
Now I stay out ’till Sunday, I have to say I stayed with friends
It’s a habit worth forming, It’s a means to justify the end
Dancing in the moonlight
It’s caught me in it’s spotlight,
It’s alright, it’s alright, the moonlight
This long, hot summer night
I’m walking home
Last bus is long gone

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

Lost your head

Now you sleep on the floor

What you said

I don’t want anymore

Through the haze

Make your eyes up to ache

Out in space

Days away

Through these eyes

I rely on all I’ve seen

Obscured

Through these eyes

It looks like I’m home tonight

Left for dead

As you sweep out the poor

Things we said

We don’t mean anymore

Tear inside her

Like a fallen kite

Ah, ah, ah, ah, hey, hey, yeah

Through these eyes

I deny on all I’v seen

Obscured

Through these eyes

Ooks like I’m home tonight

What you said

Made a mess of me

What you said

I don’t want

Obscured

Freak out
And give in
Doesn’t matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody’s fool this year
‘Cause they know
Who is righteous, What is bold
So I’m told
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Hipsters unite
Come align for the big fight to rock for you
But beware
All those angels with their wings glued on
‘Cause deep down
We are frightened and we’re scared
If you don’t stare
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Tell me all of your secrets
Cannot help but believe this is true
Tell me all of your secrets
I know, I know, I know,
Should have listened when I was told
Who wants honey
As long as there is some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out

All your feelings are the same

Turn around, look around, you’ll see

And all your troubles still remain

Set them down, take what you long to me

I’m your pillar of stone

So when the wind cause’ you to roam

You can call this house your home

Only you

I’ve got reasons of my own

But you might say I’m nothing way along

All your love won’t change

A million miles and a thousand smiles away

All your love won’t change

A million miles and a thousand smiles away

Not worth asking, who I’m supposed to be

Not worth saying, seems I’m free

Not worth reaching, to anyone at all

Not worth reaching out to stop this fall

I’m on my own

Yeah, I’m on my own

Not worth being, I might already be

I just want someone to reach for me

Not worth sinkin’, it’s not worth diggin’ down

I’ve been here before, and hate what I’ve found

It’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away

It’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away, so far away

Not worth asking, who I’m supposed to be

Not worth saying something, seems I’m free

Not worth reaching to anyone at all

Not worth reaching out, I’ll stop this fall

But I like you just the same

You’ve got to know some how

That I’m the one to blame

We’ve come so far along

To end this destiny

You’ve got to know somehow

That it’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away

Yeah, it’s too late, too late

I’m on my own, I’m on my own

I’ve gotta go so far away, so far away

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

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

I’m two, doctor
Three’s on the line
He’ll take incubation another day
I’m all alone, so are we all
We’re all clones
All are one and one are all

We destroyed the government

Ugly ones
Stupid boys
Wrong ones

We’re all clones
All are one and one are all

Adjusting to his clone status
Have to put him on a shelf
All day long we hear him crying so loud

Say goodbye on a night like this
If it’s the last thing we ever do
You never looked as lost as this
Sometimes it doesn’t even look like you
It goes dark
It goes darker still
Please stay
But I watch you like I’m made of stone
As you walk away
I’m coming to find you if it takes me all night
A witch hunt for another girl
For always and ever is always for you
Your trust
The most gorgeously stupid thing I ever cut in the world
Say hello on a day like today
Say it everytime you move
The way that you look at me now
Makes me wish I was you
It goes deep
It goes deeper still
This touch
And the smile and the shake of your head
I’m coming to find you if it takes me all night
Can’t stand here like this anymore
For always and ever is always for you
I want it to be perfect
Like before
I want to change it all
I want to change

Life is so strange when you don’t know
How can you tell where yore’ going to
You can’t be sure of any situation
Something could change and then you won’t know
Ask yourself
Where do we go from here
It seems so all to near
Just as far beyond as I can see
I still don’t know what this all means to me
Tell yourself
I have nowhere to go
I don’t know what to do
And I don’t even know the time of day
I guess it doesn’t matter any way
Life is so strange
Destination unknown
When you don’t know
Your destination
Something could change
It’s unknown
And then you won’t know
Destination unknown
Life is so strange
Destination unknown
When you don’t know
Your destination
Something could change
It’s unknown
And then you won’t know
Destination unknown
You ask yourself
When will my time come
Has it all been said and done
I know I’ll leave when it’s my time to go
Till then I’ll carry on with what I know
Life is so strange
Destination unknown
When you don’t know
Your destination
Something could change
It’s unknown
And then you won’t know

When I met you in the restaurant you could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what’s my pleasure, “A movie or a measure”?
I’ll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming
Dreaming is free
I don’t want to live on charity
Pleasure’s real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me, we just walk on by; we just keep on dreaming
Feet feet: walking a two mile
Meet meet: meet me at the turnstile
I never met him, I’ll never forget him
Dream dream: even for a little while
Dream dream: filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate
I sit by and watch the river flow
I sit by and watch the traffic go
Imagine something of your very own; something you can have and hold
I’d build a road in gold just to have some dreaming
Dreaming is free

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

Stay with me, I’ll set you free
‘Cause I can tell you once were pretty
Rose so sad you’ve lost your petals
Lost the luster off your tattle tales
I need a love to help me find my way
I need a strength that I can not betray
I need a word to say what I can’t say
I need a lover, lover
I need a lover, lover
What are we waiting for?
What are we waiting for?
Time has lost its hold on me
Hatred sleeps inside my bones
In the stillness of cool air
All the boys have been left for dead
‘Cause we go where they fear to tread
The beautiful one’s the one’s we’ll remember
The precious one’s our greatest pretenders
I need a love to help me find my way
I need a strength that I cannot betray
I need a word to say what I can’t say
I need a lover, lover
I need a lover, lover
And if you lose yourself
Could you take me, too?
Could you rest inside the sleep?
Stay with me, I’ll set you free from you…..

Stay with me, I’ll set you free from you…..
Stay with me, I’ll set you free from you…..

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 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 down

You blame yourself for wanting more

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 the mouths of babes scream disillusion

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 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

Dirty your face

With longing and grace, God-given

Suffer her heart

And love her when your love goes unrequited

Where the cool winds blow

I must surely go

For my love calls me below to drag her

From the depths of my soul

When will I see her again?

The other side of friends

The darkened claws of death

The empty breath desire

Dirty your face

With longing and grace, God-given

Suffer her heart

And love her when your love goes unrequited

Restless in my speech

And ruthless in my teach

So vacant in my breach

I drive the dirt up her garden

Sorrow

She’ll never listen again

No other lovers to bend

Just rotten apples to eat

Just letter yellowed distant scorn

Dirty your face

With longing and grace, God-given

Suffer her heart

And love her when your love goes unrequited

Life just fades away

Purity just begs

Dust to dust, we’re wired into sadness

Gone, long gone

Blink and I’ll be gone, gone, gone

Leave this world of wrong, wrong, wrong

Leave it far behind

And although my secret’s gone

I’ll try to carry on

If I must, I’ll get along

Without you

Gone, long gone

Leave this world of wrong, wrong, wrong

Beyond the pale, beyond the dawn

Flee these mortal bonds

No one knows I can’t be wrong

So I’ll sing the same old song

I tried to be strong

For you

Why have you left me?

Amongst the tall trees

I know I gave her all I have

And I tied her heart in ribbons

Tied her heart in ribbons

Tied her heart in ribbons

And bows

And I’m gone

Oh yes, I’m gone

And I’m lost without you

I’m lost within you

And I’m gone

So gone

Long gone

You’re an empty promise

You’re an easy chair

You’re the gods forces

Struck down somewhere

You’re a secret noticed

You’re a mystery sky

You’re a wish floating

Up to the night

Medellia of my eyes

You’re the emptiness of I

You’re the reason that I write

And if you say you will

I would love you still

And if I could

I’d throw away this world

I’d dress you all in pearls

I’d give you what you wanted

You’re all I notice

In a crowded room

Your vacant motives

Unmoved, revealed

Medellia of my eyes

You’re the emptiness of I

You’re the reason that I drive

And if you say you will

I would love you still

And if I just could

Be anything for you

Just anyone at all

Anything that mattered, washed out

You’re the silly reasons

In a goldfish laugh

You’re the ageless seasons

At rest, at last

I wish I was blank
I wish I was blank
I wish I could thank

I write a letter to you
And there’d be nothing to it
I wouldn’t hem and haw
On just how to start it
I wish I was blank
I wish I was blank
I wish I could thank
I wish I was blank
I wish I’d stand up straight
I wish I’d said things different
I wish I’d said nothing
Things would be so perfect
I wish myself to keep
I pray myself to sleep
I wish myself away
I wish I was blank

And the embers never fade in my city by the lake

The place where I was born

As the wind-up toys wind down

Muffling the sound of a life hidden underground

Believe, believe in me

Believe

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

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

We’ll the crucify the insincere tonite

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

The impossible is possible tonite

Believe in me like I believe in you tonite

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

This is the last song

This is the last song I’ll sing for you

This is the last song

This is the last song I can give you

The roaring city sleeps

Metal fingers clutching dirty sheets

And no one comes for free

In this place where the angels sleep

This is the last song

My eyes are open wonder to this

As you hold the secrets

I count the minutes off so perfectly

The shards of broken glass

Sing the strains of a sad old tune

We’ve made it at last

But what we had is lost inside our past

This is the last song

Could you find away across me

To forgive and forget me

To appease and relent me

To deceive and detect me

To understand and release me

To the dawn

This is the last song

Love is a sentimental heart

Life is a sentimental way

Spy the fragile heart so cursed

As he walks across this earth

I’m disconnected by your smile

Disconnect a million miles

And what you promised me

I hope will set you free

I’m disconnected by your smile

And all I gave to you is lost

And all you took from me is lost

Black wings carry me so high

Up to meet you in the sky

I’m disconnected by your smile

Disconnect a million miles

And what you promised me

I hope will set you free

I’m disconnected by your smile

Wishing you were real to me

Wishing I could make believe

I’ll take my secrets to the grave

Safely held beneath the waves

Always knew I couldn’t save

Always knew I couldn’t save you

A livewire moves slow

A transformer always knows

The score is four

Leaves you hanging on the floor

For more and less and more of the blame

And she’s tired

And she’s sick of the same old shit

It’s just more of the same old same

I know she wants more and more and more to witness

To lay down and bear true

A cherry onion firefly

Tastes sweet and white

As you are blue

Knows just what she wants to do

With you below the silver skies

Don’t hate her because she’s undecided

And she’s tired

And she’s sick of the same old shit

It’s just more of the same old same

I know she wants more and more and more to stomach

In honor of her youth

She’s not sorry she’s happy

Sorry she’s happy

She’s not sorry she’s happy

Sorry she’s happy as a turtle

She’s a real live transformer

And I’m in love

The joy of love

The coming of

Did you call my name

Never ever felt afraid

Did you hold onto

Did you make it thru

You

There’s so much doubt in every heart

For all our faults we carry on

I got so scared

I made mistakes

Will I hold onto

Will I make it thru

Day is ending

Birds are wending

Back to their shelter of

Each little nest they love

Nightshade’s falling

Lovebirds calling

What makes the world go round

Nothing but love

When whippoorwills call

And evening is night

I hurry to my blue heaven

I turn to the right

A little white light

Will lead you to my blue heaven

You’ll see a smiling face

A fireplace, a cozy room

A little nest

That’s nestled where the roses bloom

Just molly and me

And baby makes three

We’re happy in my blue heaven

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 sun has blessed
The rays are gone
And all the kids have left their tears and gone home
Sweet 17, sour 29
And I can’t explain myself
What I’d hoped to find
You were all so kind
When I was near
And if you’re still feeling down
Then maybe you need me around
To love and hold you
Don’t say I hadn’t told you so
Maybe you need me around
I had no luck
I had no shame
I had no cause, just 17 days of rain
And you in my eyes
Just one more song to slay this earth
And I can’t explain myself just what it’s worth
It was all I had, but not all I’d need
And I can’t escape the fact that I still bleed
And if you’re still feeling down
And if this seems way too loud
Then maybe you need me around
I had no voice
I had no drive
I had no choice
I’ve done my time
I had myself
Had my band
I had my love
Had no hand in watching it all fall apart
And if you’re still feeling down
Then maybe you need me around
To lift and scold you
To send you crashing all right now
Maybe you need me around

What’s the matter
What’s the difference
You’ll feel better if you lie
With the stars in your eyes
Honey, honey
Where’s my baby
She know better than to cry
With the stars in her eyes
There is
No safe place to go
I should know
The lame
And the droll have needs
To let their feelings show
What’s the matter
What’s the difference
What’s the question
You’ll feel better
If you lie
With the stars in your eyes
There is
No safe place to go

And the droll have needs
To let their feelings show

Bury your heart in a
Bury your heart in a

Fool enough to almost be it

Cool enough to not quite see it

Doomed

Pick your pockets full of sorrow

And run away with me tomorrow

June

We'll try and ease the pain

But somehow we'll feel the same

Well, no one knows

Where our secrets go

I send a heart to all my dearies

When your life is so, so dreary

Dream

I'm rumored to the straight and narrow

While the harlots of my perils

Scream

And I fail

But when I can, I will

Try to understand

That when I can, I will

Mother weep the years I'm missing

All our time can't be given

Back

Shut my mouth and strike the demons

That cursed you and your reasons

Out of hand and out of season

Out of love and out of feeling

So bad

When I can, I will

Words defy the plans

When I can, I will

Fool enough to almost be it

And cool enough to not quite see it

And old enough to always feel this

Always old, I'll always feel this

No more promise no more sorrow

No longer will I follow

Can anybody hear me

I just want to be me

When I can, I will

Try to understand

That when I can, I will

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?

It’s in blood

I suppose

Breaking jars

I’m no good

As the prodigal son

And I know that you’re mesmerized

You had a vision, made these laws

And sanitized, are we above desires

I miss him so

You are so fucked

It has begun

Revolution crawls

All over you

I was listening

You light up the sky

And scrape out your skull

Your lovely face

Will never be claimed thrice

And we’re so unlikely to

Upon my wrists I bear the cross

My losses mount as I climb across the home

Of my own soul

I’ll claim my prize

I don’t exist

I am divine

A ghost with eyes

Lies will disguise

Midnight people

Rushing for a downtown train

Watching and wasting away

Their hearts beat free

Cool frequency

And I don’t know what it is

I’m gonna run the slow dawn

Seeking sigh, oh so faint

I’m gonna run the slow dawn awake

It’s blessed undone

The songbirds all around

And I’m not sure what it is

But I’m sure that I could give it

Awake the slow dawn

Slow dawn moves by my side

Teach your silent sleep

Slow dawn

The midnight people

Washing down here, wasting way

They’re gonna run the slow dawn awake

We’re so young

And we’re so dumb

With our registered calculations

And if you dare

And should I care

I could destroy you

And take you there

As the spitfires begin their descent

And tragic romantic ascent

My love is one hundred percent

Come back to me, my mistake

Come back to me, my mistake

Come back to me, my mistake

Mistake, it was all my mistake

So suck me through

Your saliva screws

I can’t help myself if I don’t know

The flaws in you

That were equal to

The mysteries I’ve almost knew

And I’ve said this so many, many times

Can’t help you out of your mind

So please don’t judge me unkind

Come back to me, my mistake

Come back to me, my mistake

Come back to me, my mistake

And if you pretend

Please try to offend everyone

We share the sea monkey disease

So give me my greatful little piece

And do what you want as you please

Come back to me, my mistake

Come back to me, my mistake

Come back to me, my mistake

Away to the side you move your head
Gravity fingers dig in your back
The strangest man won’t let you breathe
Rocking on you in a movie scene
His words fill your mouth
His guests bleed sick
Devoid of touch
He lets out to the streets where you were raised
Sittin’ home waiting for the coming age
You had to wait your turn
You had to wait your turn
Wake up early, wash up late
Satellites connect you to your hate
Your patience grows but your skin is thin
The pager signals they’re coming in
Through the hole in the wall
You left the hole in the wall
Here’s to the atom bomb
May everyone find a way to get on
A little piece of heaven is all you seek
In the same old re-run week after week
Their faces make you want to kill
The little piece of heaven singin’ on the windowsill
No lights can turn you on
Pixelate the night
Reading the words
Of your eyes on the streets where you were born
Sittin’ home waiting for the coming dawn
Near the hole in the wall
You left a hole in the wall

Silent sparrow

Secret serpentine smile

Distant crying child

You’re my lost little love

You’re my lost little one

Urgent arrow

Arcane echo

My, my, my have we thrown

Together apart

And together again

We will scatter friends

Like the whistling wind

You can see me wave

Same, I’m the same

But if I did

And I meet you there

You’ll hold my hand

Pretend you understand

That I’m just one man

Still a boy perhaps

Simple silent humble human being

We will scatter friends

Like the whistling wind

You can see me wave

Same, I’m the same

And distant isles

And ocean miles

And mountain wilds

And film stars

And restless charge

Moving roaring

Soaring gone, gone, gone

And with built-in lion ears

In silence throe

To fill the meetings

To strike me down

For your love

For your love

Radio waves of a dying sun

Radio speaks my soul alone

Forget my names, erase the page

Antennas draw the passengers

Yes, I am waiting

In silence throe

My blood of treason

My tears of hope

No more a feeling

Than being cold

Of playing on

Yes, I am waiting

As I ride your dreams

Yes, I am waiting

Inside your doubts

Just let me out

Just let me out

And if I fall into you all

Will my rain cease and dissolve

Some come to harm, others to grace

So let my friends fly under these wings

We’re giving it up to the sun

We’re giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up to the earth

Giving it up from our room

Know when there’s nowhere to run

Know when there’s not much to lose

Sometimes it seems so long

Since you had a chance to refuse

We built a fire

Winterlong

Transform to iron

I was the first one

I was the last one to be strong

And if I fall into you all

Will the silence shatter and stall

Some feel movement, others stand still

So let the moment become my will

We’re giving it up to the moon

We’re giving it up to the earth

Giving it up from our rooms

Know when there’s nowhere to run

The words flow

Decisions made

Idea’s mine

But the inspiration not

Dreams of hangers-on

Dreams of getting well

Spells of esmeralda

Amarose fortold

Splinters in the eye

Sentiments remain

Bones are never asked

Where are we going to

It was never up to me

And yet I pushed until it broke

I love the open road

And all that it suggests

Wheelwagon dust

Weeds and infidelities

And always swore our love

Never questioned why

In a wooden house

Immovable and silent

And drinking strawberry wine

Forever lost in town

And through the sleeping streets

Nightbound and heavy

Wheels in a spoke

Just a spoken foreign sound

Know my gates are high

My friends even higher

Forgotten in my mind

Yet the scars still lingering

Cloud the blue skies

I’m jealous of you birds

Was the only truth

In a world full of words

Hear the prairie sound

In a friend called neil

The heart is pointed down

But my spirit pointed up

His voice the siren

Of greek mythology

I pause with my pen

I begin to defend

Every action taken

Every moment sealed

When I was quick

It coursed through open veins

The will to live

The urgency to move

Behind a panel door

Sealing cherry stain

I played my guitar

And lived those lonesome notes

Like a dog that’s down

In a corner just aside

Waiting to be called

Waiting to be yours

Ghosts of a machine

Without purpose or will

I’ll often speak of you

But the you was always me

‘Cause when I speak of me

It’s me I ask of you

So let there be no truth

Just trickery in rhymes

Time the only thing

Waiting still is death

I hope for resolution

Pray one defining moment

Pause without restraint

Barren without child

A child is who I was

A child is who I’ll die

A child is who I’ll die

Soot in my hair

And stars in my hands

Soot in my hair

And stars in my hands

Soot in my hair

And stars in my hands

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

Sipping tea
Let the rivers pass me by
These dusty tears
Need no place to cry
I need no reason for the first time in my life
I just need to be on my way
I don’t want for anything that I don’t have
All I want is waiting for me there, for me there
With my czarina, queen of all that I believe
Stillborn seasons cradle our affairs
I light a candle
My lover to protect
In sackcloth and ashes
My lover will descend
I need no reason for the first time in my life
I just need to be on my way
I don’t want for anything that I don’t have
All I want is waiting for me there
I don’t want for anything that I don’t have
All I want is waiting for me there for me there
Hid behind your walls
I waste the day
If I want
All this and more are under me
I need no reason for the first time in my life
I just need to be on my way
I don’t want for anything that I don’t have
All I want is waiting for me there
I don’t want for anything that I don’t have
All I want is waiting for me there
For me there
For me there

The horses run once in a while for you

The shades will drop once in a while for you

Destiny will hide the sense of your touch

Once in a while

Once in a while for you

Once in a while for you

Once in a while for you

The soldiers will fall once in a while for you

The shades will crawl once in a while for you

You’ll take the waltz

I will take the refrain

Once in a while

More than a while it’s you

Once in a while it’s you

Once in a while

You’ll make it all your own

You’ll make it so I won’t

Feel so alone

And you’ll try to care once in a while for me

And I will be there once in a while

More than a while for you

Once in a while for you

Once in a while for you

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

In the summer I can breathe

I don’t need a single thing

And all the love you give

Is so sweet

In the winter I can read

All those books you gave to me

And all the words of faith

Are bound to waste

Worn and torn from the outside

A love that’s strong every time

Still you vanish in the night

Hey love

Hey love

Hey love

Jack and rosemary

Said love will calm their hearts

Never any moment

Still devout

A child that can change

I blessed on the stage

I lost the changes

We give each day

Worn and torn from the outside

A child gets born it’s divine

A love that’s strong every time

Do you feel anything

Can you explain

If I change

Oooh oooh

Worn and torn from the outside

A love that’s strong as the tides

And still you vanish in the night

Hey love

Hey love (well come on darling)

Hey love (well come on feel)

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

We watch the children playing
Beside the Christmas tree
The presents are wrapped up
So beautiful and secretly the gifts still hide
The fun awaits for you inside
Christmastime has come
There will be toys for everyone
‘Cause Christmastime has come for you
I remember dreaming
Waiting hoping praying for this day
Now I sit and watch them
The little ones I love so excited by the wait
And the word is given
Time to peek inside
Time to let the toys out
Waited for just your surprise.
Christmastime has come
There will be toys for everyone
‘Cause Christmastime has come for you

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

[Hello] [speak & spell?]
Here’s a name you cannot forget
Her name is Glynis, yes
And with these tears of respect
Conforms a sadness
For anyone who’s ever lost
One who’s dearest, and the love of a friend
On our worried knees
Given to all beliefs
Scarecrows and disease haunt us all
Ooh, bury your heads in the sand
Ooh, bury your heads
So have we stumbled from grace
Are we being punished for fate
My god is subtle and great
He can’t be wounded
By the gossip and the hate of the frightened
Who took their paths on the sand, yeah
Fear that grips us all
Gives us an awful sound
Can’t help anything but ourselves
Ooh, bury your head in the sand
Ooh, bury your head, yeah
Ooh, bury your head
Ooh, I believe in one love
Ooh, I believe in one love
Ooh, I believe in one love
Yeah, yeah

It’s the plan of most

To discover that magnificent ghost

When did I get perverted

And my innocent eyes diverted from the view so grand

Imbued with distractions

Sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying

I’m greedy like Senior Babbitt

I’m just chasing that electric rabbit

I’m a reluctant rebel

I just want to be Aaron Neville

With a crown on my head

And my denim shirt all dark with sweat

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

I’m just pushing the paint around

On advice from your lying mouth

You touched me, then ran

And left a sad Peter Pan

All alone and awkward

But a transformation, it will occur

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

And you’re lying, sad Peter Pan

The sewers belch me up

The heavens spit me out

From ethers tragic I am born again

And now I’m with you now

Inside your world of wow

To move in desires made of deadly pretends

Till the end times begin

Is it bright where you are

Have the people changed

Does it make you happy you’re so strange

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

You can watch the world devoured in it’s pain

Strange

Climb my ribcage to

The replays run for you

Unhook my lights to peek behind the flash

For I am crystal chrome

I am shatter dome

I am kremlin king of angels avenged

To destroy the end

Is it bright where you are

Have the people changed

Does it make you happy you’re so strange

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

You can watch the world devoured in it’s pain

The zeppelins rain upon us

The guns of love disastrous

A shadow lies amongst you

To defy the future cast

Is it bright where you are

Have the people changed

Does it make you happy you’re so strange

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

You can watch the world devoured in it’s pain

Send a heartbeat to the void that cries through you

Relive the pictures that have come to pass

For now we stand alone

The world is lost and blown

And we are flesh and blood disintigrate

With no more to hate

Is it bright where you are?

And have the people changed?

Does it make you happy you’re so strange?

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Delivered from the blast

The last of a line of lasts

The pale princess of a palace cracked

And now the kingdom comes

Crashing down undone

And I am a master of a nothing place

Of recoil and grace

Is it bright where you are?

And have the people changed?

Does it make you happy you’re so strange?

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Time has stopped before us

The sky cannot ignore us

No one can separate us

For we are all that is left

The echo bounces off me

The shadow lost beside me

There’s no more need to pretend

Cause now I can begin again

Is it bright where you are?

And have the people changed?

Does it make you happy you’re so strange?

And in your darkest hour, I hold secrets flame

We can watch the world devoured in its pain

Quiet
I am sleeping
In here
We need a little hope
For years
I’ve been sleeping
Helpless
Couldn’t tell a soul
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Silent
Metal mercies
Castrate
Boys to the bone
Jesus
Are you listening?
Up there
To anyone at all
We are the fossils
The relics of our time
We mutilate the meanings
So they’re easy to deny
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I don’t trust you
I can’t hear you
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Behind me
The grace of falling snow
Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing

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

Freak out
And give in
Doesn’t matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody’s fool this year
‘Cause they know
Who is righteous, What is bold
So I’m told
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Hipsters unite
Come align for the big fight to rock for you
But beware
All those angels with their wings glued on
‘Cause deep down
We are frightened and we’re scared
If you don’t stare
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Tell me all of your secrets
Cannot help but believe this is true
Tell me all of your secrets
I know, I know, I know,
Should have listened when I was told
Who wants honey
As long as there is some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out

Nothing left to say
And all I’ve left to do
Is run away
From you
And she led me on, down
With secrets I can’t keep
Close your eyes and sleep
Don’t wait up for me
Hush now don’t you speak
To me
Wrapped my hurt in you
And took my shelter in that pain
The opiate of blame
Is your broken heart, your heart
So now I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
I’ll betray my tears
To anyone caught in our ruse of fools
One last kiss for me…yeah
One last kiss good night
Didn’t want to lose you once again
Didn’t want to be your friend
Fulfilled a promise made of tin
And crawled back to you
I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
I’ll betray myself
To anyone, lost, anyone but you
So let the sadness come again
On that you can depend on me, yeah
Until the bitter, bitter end of the world, yeah
When god sleeps in bliss
And I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
And I’ll betray myself
To anyone

Lover lover let’s pretend
We’re born as innocents
Cast into the world
With apple eyes
To wish wish dangerous
My dear delirious
To try and leave
The rest of us behind
Shot full of diamonds
And a million years
The disappointed disappear
Like they were never here
Kiss kiss all of this
The hiss that we had missed
And understand what can’t be understood
Sear those thoughts of me
Alone and unhappy
I never liked me anyway
If by chance
Or circumstance
We should fail
Don’t be so sad
Shot full of diamonds
And a million years
The disappointed disappear
Like they were never here
In a dream
We are connected
Siamese twins
At the wrist
And then I knew we’d been forsaken
Expelled from paradise
I can’t believe them
When they say that it’s alright
Words can’t define what I feel inside
Who needs them?
Caught with this virus of my mind
I give in to my disease, of my needs
To my disease, of my needs
She really loves to break
Her dad says its OK
She really loves to break
And give it all away
Her ma says she’s afraid
What more can she fake
She really needs to break
And give herself away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
We really love the USA

Taking me where I wanna be

Watching the world pass us by
Never want to come down
