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

See you, I am one

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

Planned a show
Trees and balloons
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
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows
Colors show
After the moon
I should go
See you in June
Your way
And she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows
Open your eyes to these mustered lines
Open your eyes to these mustered lines
The way
And she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows
How’s it she knows, she knows, she knows
And she knows, she knows, she knows

(Over you, like an angel)
Bury me in love
Bury me in love
Shared your kisses
Shame your heart
Buried me and it hurts
I love my sister so (chain, unchain)
She don’t smother me (chain, unchain, unchain)
I played the spades I know (unchain)
I’m a jack of all trades
Would you bury me
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
If you see her tell me why (hide, hide)
Why won’t she come outside
Want to see her born inside (hide, hide)
Some of the things you just can’t hide
She waits, bury me
She waits, bury me

You wrap your arms around
A feeling that surrounds
Like a liquid peppermint
Just taste the drinks that she served
And this feeling shivers down your spine
Love comes in colors I can’t deny
All that matters is love, love, your love
You’re sleeping in your bed
Just rest your weary head
Maybe you shouldn’t care
Throw away those dreams and dare
And I wonder if it matters to me
Love comes in colors I can’t deny
All that shimmers is love, love, your love
Your love
Your love

All that you suffer is all that you are

All that you smother is all that you are

And you’re seeing, you’re seeing

You’re seeing who you are

What takes meaning is cleaning

The meaning of who you are

On this scene

I will dream

On this scene

All of your struggles beneath your disguise

Drink from the reasons that hold you alive

To ascend from the words of desire and pain

You must rise from the mounds of desire and change

Too late to discover peace of mind

Too late to recover me

All you see and all you breathe and

All you cease to be

Take him down your only son and

What he means to be

Your dream will be

To dream with me

Will you wait, yes I’ll wait

I will wait for you

Will you wait, yes I’ll wait

I will wait for you

To cleanse your life

Takes more than time

Take what you want

Take all of me

Too late to discover peace of mind

(Have no peace of mind)

Too late to recover

All your seven dreams

Are closer than you believe

As your things come undone

See you are the only one

Flower, seize the hour, the day away

Waiting, waiting for your way, away

When you wake up you’re away

Throwing your life away

Someday, sorry coming home

Sorry, snail

What you wait for

Flower, the pain will wash away, away

When the sunshine climbs through your window

Into your bed

When you wake up you’re away

Throwing your life away

Someday, sorry coming home

Sorry, snail

Yeah, live in my home

Flower, seize the hour

Flower, away

What you wait for

Flower, taste the sunshine

Flower, taste the sunshine

Pledge your faith
I hardly breathe
Struggle to return
Blurry mind
So hypnotized
Fast enough to move
Wonder where you are
Tristessa
Soul takes soul as eye take eye
I will wait for you
What you believe you’ll wish to receive
Won’t believe in who, you
Hang on to your life
Tristessa
I love you too
Surely I do
I love you too
Surely I do
Surely I do
Surely I do
No, no, no
Did you ever wake up
And find yourself alone
Did you ever wake up far from home
What you believe you’ll wish to receive
Won’t believe in who

Do what you’re gonna do

And say what you’re gonna say

Do what you’re gonna do

Yeah, start today

Start today

Windblown shame around my heart

Shadow screen around my heart

What are you coming to?

Script down to the bone

Love me, leave me

Do what you’re gonna do

Yeah, start today

My daydream seems as one inside of you
Though it seems hard to reach through this life
Your blue and hopeless life
My daydream screams bitter ’til the end
The love I share -true- selfish to the heart
My heart, my sacred heart

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

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

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

Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don’t want them anymore
And in their eyes I was alive
A fool’s disguise
Take me away from you
Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I’d ever been
When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and revive
It’s alright honey
It’s alright, yeah
Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away
Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it’s true
Life’s a bummer
When you’re a hummer
Life’s a drag
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free
Do you feel
Love is real?

Dream of your own life
I miss me
I miss everything I’ll never be
And on, and on
I torch my soul to show
The world that I am pure
Deep inside my heart
No more lies
A crown of horns
An image formed deformed
The mark I’ve borne
A mark of scorn to you
Consume my love, devour my hate
Only powers my escape
The moon is out, the stars invite
I think I’ll leave tonight
So soon I’ll find myself alone
To relax and fade away
Do you know what’s coming down
Do you know I couldn’t stay free?
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free

I shall be free free
Free of those voices inside me
I shall be free

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?

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

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

Additional Info: After the song, there's a clip from a TV talk show or something: "Now it's, uh, kind of strange, and, uh, kinda hard for me to talk about, but I thought maybe you could help- um, when we start getting physical, rather than having intercourse, he ends up just masturbating himself, and I end up feeling very alienated and unsatisfied, and it's really come between us-"

Feel it
Break your bones
Mr. Jones
Taste me
As I bleed
Taste my need
And spaceboy I’ve missed you
Spinning round my head
And any way you choose me
You’ll break instead
Watch me
Death defy
Defile my life
I don’t need
I don’t care
Please
I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home
‘Cause when a lover aches
That’s when a lover breaks
I want to go home
I want to go home
And spaceboy they’ll kill me
Before I’m dead and gone
And any way you choose me
It won’t be wrong
And anyway you choose me
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong
We won’t belong

I hear your winter
I hear you rain
I’ve failed your summer ways
And I feel no pain
I hear what you want
And I feel that way
I hear what you want
And I feel that way
I hear you fade away
And I hear you crawl
I gave my life away
And I feel no pain
And I feel no pain
And I feel no pain
And I feel your pain
And she was my lover so sweet
And she was my angel
And what I’ve recovered of me
I put into a box underneath my bed
When you lie in your bed
And you lie to yourself
When you lie in your bed
And you lie to yourself
Lie

Bang bang you’re dead hole in your head
Bang bang you’re dead hole in your head
Bang bang you’re dead hole in your head

And I feel that way

I don’t know just where you’ve been
But I’ll take take take
All that you have for me
In sin
Where are we going?
And they all want you to change
And they all want you to change
And the sad sad sad
All the sad faces drown
In this town
Where are we going?

Where are we going?
And they all want you to change

What moonsongs
Do you sing your babies?
What sunshine do you bring?
Who belongs
Who decides who’s crazy
Who rights wrongs where others cling?
I’ll sing for you
If you want me to
I’ll give to you
And it’s a chance I’ll have to take
And it’s a chance I’ll have to break
I go along
Just because I’m lazy
I go along to be with you
And those moonsongs
That you sing your babies
Will be the songs to see you through
I’ll hear your song
If you want me to
I’ll sing along
And it’s a chance I’ll have to take
And it’s a chance I’ll have to break
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with 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

Welcome to nowhere fast

Nothing here ever lasts

Nothing but memories

Of what never was

We’re nowhere, we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere to be

Nowhere, we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere to see

Living makes me sick

So sick I wish I’d die

Down in the belly of the beast

I can’t lie

You’re nowhere, you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere to be

Nowhere, you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere to see

There’s nothing left to do

There’s nothing left to feel

Doesn’t matter what you want, so

To make yourself feel better

You make it so you’ll never

Give in to your forevers

And live for always

And forever, forever, you’re forever to be

Forever, forever, you’re forever to me

My reflection, dirty mirror

There’s no connection to myself

I’m your lover, I’m your zero

I’m the face in your dreams of glass

So save your prayers

For when we’re really gonna need ’em

Throw out your cares and fly

Wanna go for a ride?

She’s the one for me

She’s all I really need

Cause she’s the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness

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

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

Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms

The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth

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

I never let on that I was down

You blame yourself, for what you can’t ignore

You blame yourself for wanting more

She’s the one for me

She’s all I really need

She’s the one for me

She’s my one and only

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

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

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

I’m never coming back
I’m never giving in
I’ll never be the shine in your spit
I disconnect the act
I disconnect the dots
I disconnect the me in me
And you’re mistaken, it’s you that’s faking
Living and breathing and dying too
This message is for anyone who dares to hear a fool
You can’t bring me back, you can’t bring me back
Cause I give it all back to you
Thru sacred alleys, the living wrecks
Wreak their havoc upon this world
The disenchanted, the romantics,
The body and face and soul of you is gone down that deep black hole
Destroy the mind-destroy the body-but you cannot destroy the heart
And you, you make me so I need to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need you love to disconnect
To runaround kids in get-go cars
With Vaseline afterbirths and neon coughs
Galaxies full of nobodies
Giving us the farewell runarounds
I took a virgin Mary ax to his sweet baby Jane,
Lost my innocence to a no good girl,
Scratch my face with anvil hands,
And coil my tongue around a bumblebee mouth
And I give it all back to you
No way, I don’t need it, I don’t need your love to disconnect
And you make it, so real, I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect

To my mistakes, to my mistakes of cowardice
She shimmy shakes, the jimmy jakes of consequence
Born of the airs and dues, my airs of madness do declare
That it’s ok, it’s love
It’s what you wanted to see, it’s who you wanted to be
For what you needed to need, she’ll make it up
Love, it’s who you know
Machine gun blues, her vacant rush is so steel
I’m unaware, lost inside your visions
I got mine too over, I got mine and I got you
Cause I know you, you’re love
It’s what you wanted to see, it’s who you wanted to be
For what you needed to need, she’ll make it up
Love, it’s who you know
Can I look up to you as you look down on me
Can I feel in to you as you felt in to me
I can’t help what you see, I can’t help but to be
For what you needed to need, she’ll make it
Love, it’s who you know

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

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

I fear that I am ordinary, just like everyone

To lie here and die among the sorrows

Adrift among the days

For everything I ever said

And everything I’ve ever done is gone and dead

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

My life has been extraordinary

Blessed and cursed and won

Time heals but I’m forever broken

By and by the way…

Have you ever heard the words

I’m singing in these song?

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

Can a taste of love be so wrong

As all things must surely have to end

And great loves will one day have to part

I know that I am meant for this world

And in my mind as I was floating

Far above the clouds

Some children laughed I’d fall for certain

For thinking that I’d last forever

But I knew exactly where I was

And I knew the meaning of it all

And I knew the the distance to the sun

And I knew the echo that is love

And I knew the secrets in your spires

And I knew the emptiness of youth

And I knew the solitude of heart

And I knew the murmurs of the soul

And the world is drawn into your hands

And the world is etched upon your heart

And the world so hard to understand

Is world you can’t live without

And I knew the silence of the world

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

Take me down, to the underground

Won’t you take me down, to the underground

Why oh why, there is no light

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

And all I see is you

Take my hand, I lost where I began

In my heart I know all of my faults

Will you help me understand

And I believe in you

You’re the other half of me

Soothe and heal…

When you sleep, when you dream,

I’ll be there if you need me, whenever I hear you sing…

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

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

And you’re all I see…

And trumpets blew, and angels flew on the other side

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

There’s a love that god puts in your heart

Additional Info: The studiotrack samples the rocket launcher explosion from an id Software's game called Doom. This sound effect points to the relationship between Doom and the Smashing Pumpkins in the "SPISPOPD" (an abbreviation for Smashing Pumpkins Into Small Piles Of Putrid Debris) joke, dating from December 1993. The Doom explosion, mentioned in the liner notes of MCIS, can be heard at the following times: 1:20 / 1:55 / 2:29 / 3:01 / 3:44.

Candy cane walks down

To build a bonfire, to break my fall

My baby, my sweet thing

Just maybe we could lose ourselves this time

King of the horseflies, dark prince of death

His tragic forces are heaven sent

In sweet things, in a lovers breath

In knowing this was meant to be the last

A go-go-kids, a go-go-style

A suck suck kiss, a suck suck smile

As always, in young need

A veiled promise to never die

On dead highways, her black beauties roam

For june angels, so far from home

For a love lost, a faded picture

To tread lightning, to ink the lavender skies

So get on the bomb

Cast the pearls aside, of a simple life of need
Come into my life forever
The crumbled cities stand as known
Of the sights you have been shown
Of the hurt you call your own
Love is suicide
The empty bodies stand at rest
Casualties of their own flesh
Afflicted by their dispossession
But no bodies ever knew
Nobody’s
No bodies felt like you
Nobody’s
Love is suicide
Now we drive the night, to the ironies of peace
You can’t help deny forever
The tragedies reside in you
The secret sights hide in you
The lonely nights divide you in two
All my blisters now revealed
In the darkness of my dreams
In the spaces in between us
But no bodies ever knew
Nobody’s
No bodies felt like you
Nobody’s
Love is suicide

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

Peace will not come to this lonely heart

There are some things I’ll live without

But I want you to know that I need you right now

I steal a kiss from her sleeping shadow moves

Cause I’ll always miss her wherever she goes

And I’ll always need her more than she could ever need me

I need someone to ease my mind

But sometimes a someone is so hard to find

And I’ll do anything to keep her here tonite

And I’ll say anything to make her feel alright

And I’ll be anything to keep her here tonite

Cause I want you to stay, with me

There are some things I’ll live without

But I want you to know that I need you right now

Suffer my desire

Suffer my desire

Suffer my desire for you

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

Farewell goodnight last one out turn out the lights

And let me be, let me die inside

Let me know the way from of this world of hate in you

Cause the dye is cast, and the bitch is back

And we’re all dead yeah we’re all dead

Inside the future of a shattered past

I lie just to be real, and I’d die just to feel

Why do the same old things keep on happening?

Because beyond my hopes there are no feelings

Bless the martyrs and kiss the kids

For knowing better, for knowing this

Cause you’re all whores and I’m a fag

And I’ve got no mother and I’ve got no dad

To save me the wasted, save me from myself

I lie just to be real, and I’d die just to feel

Why do the same old things keep on happening?

Because beyond my hopes there are no feelings

If I believe, if I decieve, if I defend you now that way

Would you believe, could you recieve, could you have faith

No one is is ever gone

And time is everything and I have none

Everybody’s lost just waiting to be found

Everyone’s a thought just waiting to fade

So fuck it all cause I don’t care

So what somehow somewhere we dared

To try to dare to dare for a little more

I lie just to be real, and I’d die just to feel

Why do the same old things keep on happening?

Because beyond my hopes there are no reasons

Wrap me up in always, and drag me in with maybes

Your innocence is treasure, your innocence is death

Your innocence is all I have

Breathing underwater, and living under glass

And if you spin your love around

The secrets of your dreams

You may find your love is gone

And is not quite what it seemed

To appear to disappear

Beneath all your darkest fears

I believe in never, I believe in all the way

But belief is not to notice, believe is just some faith

And faith can’t help you to escape

And with this ring I wed thee true

And with this ring I wed thee now

And with this ring I play so dead

But no one’s asking for the truth, so let me tell you

If you spin your love around

The secrets of your dreams

You may find your love is gone

And is not quite what it seemed

To appear to disappear

Beneath all your darkest fears

To the revelations of fresh faced youth

No one will come to save you

So speak your peace in the murmurs drawn

But youth is wasted on the young

Your strength is my weakness, your weakness my hate

My love for you just can’t explain

Why we’re forever frozen, forever beautiful,

Forever lost inside ourselves

The night has come to hold us young

Boredom’s in the bathroom shaking out the loose teeth
Sally’s in the stirrups claiming her destiny
And nobody nowhere understands anything
About me and all my dreams
Lost at sea
Jack it up Judy set your heart alight
Mayfair mistress of the satellites
Misspent youth- faking up a rampage
To hold off the real slaves
Paid off and staid
And what you never knew
Can never get to you
So fake it

I’ll be your super queen
And make you
Jukebox fuckup hanging round the drugstore
No matter what you say he’ll be back for more
Mommy’s in the manger with the little kids
She’s got her reasons, got my forgets
Of tears and idle threats
Misplaced

She didn’t wanna be, she didn’t wanna know

She couldn’t run away cause she was crazy

She gave it all away, she saw her baby break

And in the air it hung that she was dull razors

And I said, I wanna fill you up, I wanna break you, I wanna give you up

From one another, another one should come to one another

No one should come between us

Still I was lonely, and she was by my side, my one and only

Knows that she could never hide

I couldn’t feel her, and it was just a game,

Cause I was lonely and she was crazy

Rat-tat-tat, ka boom boom, now take that, and just a bit of this

Cause I’m a watcher, and I’m a doer of none

Come to save you, cause you’re all mine

I hurt where I can’t feel, I feel where I can’t hurt

I know where I can’t know, I bleed for me and mine

Ka-boom, a rat-tat-tat, and some good ole bliss

Cause I’m a sister, and I’m a motherfuck

I am made of shamrocks, I am made of stern stuff

I am never enough, I am the forgotten child

And I said I wanna fill you up, I wanna break you, I wanna give you up

From one another, no one should ever come

In between us, between us and our love

Mary had a little lamb, her face was white as snow

And everywhere that mary went I was sure to go

Now mary’s got a problem, and mary’s not a stupid girl

Mary’s got some deep shit, and mary does not forget

And this is how mary’s garden grows, and this is how mary has her ghosts

And into the eyes of the jackyl I say ka-boom

Now we begin descent, to where we’ve never been

There is no going back, this wasn’t meant to last

This is a hell on earth, we are meant to serve

And she will never learn

Bye bye, baby goodbye

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright

We only come out at night

And once again, you’ll pretend to know me well, my friends

And once again, I’ll pretend to know the way

Thru the empty space

Thru the secret places of the heart

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright

We only come out at night

I walk alone, I walk alone to find the way home

I’m on my own, I’m on my own to see the ways

That I can’t help the days, you will make it home o.k

I know you can, and you can

We only come out at night, the days are much too bright

We only come out at night

And once again, you’ll pretend to know that

There’s an end, that there’s an end to this begin

It will help you sleep at night

It will make it seem that right is always right

Alright?

We only come out at night

Beautiful, you’re beautiful, as beautiful as the sun
Wonderful, you’re wonderful, as wonderful as they come
And I can’t help but feel attached
To the feelings I can’t even match
With my face pressed up to the glass, wanting you
Beautiful, you’re beautiful, as beautiful as the sky
Wonderful, it’s wonderful, to know that you’re just like I
And I’m sure you know me well, as I’m sure you don’t
But you just can’t tell
Who you love and who you won’t
And I love you, as you love me
So let the clouds roll by your face
We’ll let the world spin on to another place
We’ll climb the tallest tree above it all
To look down on you and me and them
And I’m sure you know me well, as I’m sure you don’t
But you just can’t tell, who you’ll love and who you won’t
Don’t let your life wrap up around you
Don’t forget to call, whenever
I’ll be here just waiting for you
I’ll be under your stars forever
Neither here nor there just right beside you
I’ll be under the stairs forever
Neither here nor there just right beside you

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

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

Goodnight, to every little hour that you sleep tight
May it hold you through the winter of a long night
And keep you from the loneliness of yourself
Heart strung is your heart frayed and empty
Cause it’s hard luck, when no one understands your love
It’s unsung, and I say
Goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
Goodnight, always, to all that’s in your heart
Goodnight, may your dreams be so happy and your
Head lite with the wishes of a sandman and a
Night light, be careful not to let the bedbugs
Sleep tight nestled in your covers
The sun shines but I don’t
A silver rain will wash away
And you can tell, it’s just as well
And you can tell, it’s just as well
Goodnight, my love, to every hour in every day
Goodnight, always to all that’s pure that’s in your heart

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 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?

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?

Digging for the feel of something new
What if what is isn’t you?

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?

Does that mean you’ve got to choose?

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

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

Please don’t change at all

Bring your rain to fall

Drag the miles to me

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

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

Withstood the suitors quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
To hold the flower I can’t keep

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

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

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

Forever waiting

Forever waiting a cruel death

You know I’m not dead

Forever waiting

Recast as child and mystic sage

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love

Your every move and waking sound in my time

I’ll wrap my wrap my wire around your heart

Who wouldn’t stand inside your love and die for

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

To wait for ghost night
To bring the past alive
To make a toast to life
Cause I have survived

Will our love ever be enough

Will our love ever be enough

Will our love ever be enough

Just in time to prove

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

If I were alive
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
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
We’re the metal, in their metal machines
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
If I were dead
Would my records sell
Could you even tell
Is it just as well
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
It’s elemental, to all the rust it brings
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die and save my soul
Let me go, let me go rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me die rock and roll
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
We’re the metal, in their droning schemes
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Will I survive
Is it up to me
Could you understand
That it’s not yours to keep
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

This time I need to know

I really must be told

If it’s over

It’s up to you, you know

The things you really want to hold

Are in pieces

Crashing down

Crashing down again

Crashing down

Crashing down my friends

I’ve got to move it on

I’ve got to sing my song

While I still can

Dispatch the last alarms

Hand out the last few charms

There’s no surprises

Only love

Only love can win

Crashing down

Crashing down again

Only love, yeah

Only love will win

Crashing down

Crashing down again

This time I need to know

I really must be told

That it’s over

I’ve lived my life alone

My every step fortold

To never linger

And yet it haunts me so

What are we letting go

Our spell is broken

Crashing down

Crashing down my friends

Crashing down

Crashing down again

Only love, yeah

Only love will be enough, yeah

Only love will win

For every chemical

You trade a piece of your soul

With no return

And who you think you know

Doesn’t know you at all

Their drain is needless

Someday we’ll wave hello

And wish we’d never waved goodbye

To this romance

We’ll drink up every line

And shoot up every word

Till it’s no more

Crashing down

Crashing down my friends

Only love

Only love can win

So cry these tears

We’ll cry as all

We’ve held so long

To fall apart

As the curtain falls

We bid you all goodnight

Everywhere you are

Is everywhere you’ve been

Just lost to the beat

Punching through your skin

You don’t know what to do

But still you wanna crawl

All through the broken glass

That’s everywhere you are

Your love must always be true

Your love must always be you

Everywhere you are

Anywhere you go

Even if you’re starved

It matters what you do

But if even if you’ve gone too far

You can follow you

Everywhere you are

And in your mind

You were alone

All this time

With everything you are

And every smile you wore

Still locked in your heart

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Every single chard

Everywhere you are

You’re never too far

Cause anywhere you go

Even to the stars

All you have to do

Is play the part of who you are

The rest is up to you

Phase unwound

By yourself

Atom bomb

On the shelf, unsung

Pause of light

Pulse of life

New face dawns

Everywhere you are

And everywhere you go

Even if you’re down

Even if you’re low

It’s in the thought of you

It’s in the eyes of all

Astride a storried past

That’s everywhere you are

Your love must always be true

Your love must always be you

Everywhere you are

Anywhere you go

Even if you’re scarred

It’s all a part of you

But ever should you put it down

You can never lose me

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

Everywhere you are

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

There you are

As you always were

In bathing light

And naked blur

You’re a part of me

Eternal wone

My grand design

And setting sun

If you wait, I will wait

Taste, I will taste

If you love, I will love

Run, I will run

To my last breath

Last night I turned around and thought I saw myself turning

Inside the strangest dream of life unloved and cities burning

Awake in my arms

You cry unharmed

Our age of the hours

When they still devour all

So take it all

I doubt if we

Will know it’s gone

Cause we’ve been here

Since time began

Begged god awake

And make these plans

Wound opens

Reveal this broken man

And soon there’s notions

Of blood on his hands

If you wait, I will wait

Taste, I will taste

If you love, I will love

Run, I will run

To my last breath

Last night I turned around, I thought I saw myself turning

Last night I turned around and thought I watched the world ending

Inside the crushing I felt a pang, the tide was turning

Destroyed in the wake

The jealous ingrates

Will tear this world down

To spite god above

With his own love

With his own love

If you wait

If you wait

If you wait, I will wait

Taste, I will taste

If you love, I will love

Run, I will run

To my last breath

This is the song I’ve been singing my whole life

I’ve been waiting like a knife

To cut open your heart

And bleed my soul to you

I did it all for you

You and you and you and you

This is the sound I’ve been making my whole life

I’ve been waiting for this night

To clear up all the talk

Although I’m selfish to a fault

Is it selfish, it’s you I want

You, I did it all for you

This love will stand as long as you

There’s really no excuse

I did it all for you

These are the tears I’ve been crying my whole life

Like an ocean of desire

I’m reaching through the noise

Across the dusk of time

Within the lilting lights

I am singing out to you

Taking over, we’re taking over

Throw the weight up off your shoulders, now

That we can show our love

It’s almost over, it’s almost over

No more war and no more soldiers

To stand against his love

Away with all the troubles that you’ve made

Away with waiting for another day

Away

Look ma, the sun is shining on me

Impatient, in love, and aching to be

Could you believe in heaven

If heaven was all you had

Taking over, we’re taking over

Throw away your four leafed clovers

And stand beside this love

Away with everything you’ve grown to hate

Away with anything that holds you safe

Away

And every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

I’m never alone

Look ma, the sun is shining on me

Taking my time to do as I please

Could you believe in heaven

If heaven was all you had

The sun beaming, radiating

All the love we are creating

We are creating

And every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

Every light I’ve found

Is every light that’s shining down on me

I’m never alone

Unleash the armageddon
So all the children go to heaven
I sit by quiet still
With their pictures on my eyes
You’ll draw the guns you’re given
Write down the words as written
And never disturb the presence
Of resurrection crutch
And it’s about time
It’s about drawing near
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Descend the darkened stairways
Make hate with plastic playmates
And fire out remaining traces
Of your self esteem
Mainline the deepest secrets
Lick clean the dirty fingers
I am a stranger to you
As you are to yourself
And it’s about time
It’s about fear
Blue skies bring tears
Don’t you want me (don’t want you)
As I awake the city sight
We’ll watch the seasons die
Blue skies bring tears
Take me inside your body
Blue skies bring tears
Cover me with your soul
Blue skies bring tears
To the darkest recess
Blue skies bring tears
Is where I wish to go
Blue skies bring tears
You are the sweetest flower
Blue skies bring tears
That I have ever devoured
Blue skies bring tears
I ask for nothing given
Blue skies bring tears
For nothing in return
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears

We dismiss
The backroads
And ride these streets
Unafraid
Resigned to
Scraping paint
From our bones
Unashamed
No more the eye upon you
No more the simple man
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have guessed
All is never shown
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
And in my prayers
I dream alone
A silent speech
To deaf ear
If you want love
You must be love
But if you bleed love
You will die love
No more the lie upon you
Cast in stone and autumn shade
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have sensed
We won’t make it home
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Before the rites of spring
Come to mean all things
A little taste of what may come
A mere glimpse of what has gone
Cause for the moment we are free
We seek to bind our release
Too young to die, too rich to care
Too fucked to swear that I was there
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have guessed
We won’t make it home
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
