B i o g r a p h y
 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Following several years in Throwing Muses, as well as a brief detour in the Breeders in 1990, Tanya Donelly formed her own band, Belly, in 1992. With Belly, Donelly expanded her dreamy pop hooks into more concise, catchy songs, as well as harder-edged rock. The band's 1993 debut, Star, became one of the first beneficiaries of the commercialization of alternative rock; it rode to gold status within its first year of release, as "Feed the Tree" made headway on mainstream pop radio. Despite their strong start, Belly never became genuine stars, and once their 1995 follow-up, King, bombed, Donelly disbanded the group. Donelly (vocals, guitar) broke away from Throwing Muses in late 1991, forming Belly with fellow ex-Muse Fred Abong (bass), drummer Chris Gorman, and his guitarist brother Tom. Donelly hired Pixies producer Gil Norton to work on the group's debut EP, Slow Dust, which confirmed that her dream pop sensibilities had more hooks than many of her peers. Slow Dust reached number one on the British indie charts in early 1992, and two other EPs followed that year, generating strong word of mouth. Belly's debut album, Star, was released in February of 1993 to strong reviews, and its first single, "Feed the Tree," reached the U.K. Top 40, helping the album enter the British charts at number two. Shortly afterward, the single became a crossover hit in the U.S. The band added Gail Greenwood as bassist — Abong left the band during the recording of Star — that spring, and spent the remainder of 1993 on tour, helping send the album to gold status in America. During 1994, Belly recorded their second album with classic rock producer Glyn Johns. The resulting record, King, was more rock-oriented than its predecessor, partially because of Johns' work and partially because of Greenwood, who was a harder rocker than Donelly. King was expected to be Belly's breakthrough into the mainstream, yet was greeted with mixed reviews upon its spring release and quickly fell off the charts. In the wake of its failure, Donelly disbanded Belly in 1996, releasing her first solo EP, Sliding and Diving, at the end of the year. Greenwood joined L7 by the end of the year.

Someone To Die For


Poor thing,
Poor thing.
Do you have a sister?
Would your lay your body
Down on the tracks for her?
Stand on one tiptoe
In hell for her?
Don't you have someone
You'd die for?

Angel

Give it to me, please
I said to god.
It's only fair.
Instead, he sent three angels
To move the river,
So now it flows by my house,
So now it goes by my house.
Angel
Angel
I'd still rather have the man.
I've had bad dreams,
So bad I threw my pillow away.
Move the river,
So now it flows by my house,
So now it goes by my house.
Angel
Angel
I'd still rather have the man.

Dusted

Baby's playing dead in cellar.
Gave her water just got paler.
Grass stains, backburns, she's a screamer.
She's just dusted, leave her.
If you see her, don't upset her.
Never seems to get much better.
Grass stains, backburns, she's a screamer.
She's just dusted leave her.
Mmm mmm, goes to your heart.
Mmm mmm, sticks in your head.
Mmm mmm mmm mmm, yeah.
Baby's playing dead in cellar.
Gave her water, she got paler.
Grass stains, backburns, she's a screamer.
She's just dusted, leave her.

Every Word

So you go to leave
More room for me.
Oooo... you gave me too much room,
So I filled it up with chairs,
You can't sit on,
But if you want to stand there,
Stand there.
Oooo... you told me too much.
You thought I would leave you.
I heard every word X3
So you go, and it all grows darker
Like these chairs,
These eyes,
This room
Closes it's windows.
These chairs,
These eyes,
This room,
This heart.
I heard every word X3

Gepetto

So he's lying on top again
Just like Gepetto and his doll.
And he's running around again,
And I can't get him out of this house.
And if you bore him,
You lose your soul to me.
So that kid from the bad home
Came over to my house again,
Decapitated all my dolls.
And if you bore me,
You lose your soul to me.
Hey Gepetto,
Where'd you put it?
Oh Gepetto, poor boy.
Hey Gepetto, where'd you put it?
Oh Gepetto, poor boy.
And if you bore him,
You're gonna lose your soul.
Hey Gepetto, where'd you get to?
Oh Gepetto, poor boy.
Hey Gepetto, where'd you get to?
Oh Gepetto, poor boy.
Hey Gepetto, what'd you get me?
Oh Gepetto, poor boy.
So he's lying on top again,
Just like Gepetto.

Witch

You're not safe
In this house.
You're not safe.
Here, here,
In some witch's bed,
In some witch's bed.
You know the one.
She lies all lit up.
She lies all lit up.
She lies all lit up.
You're not safe
In this house.

Slow Dog

Meet him by the road.
There's a dog went running,
Picking through spit out leaves
A dog won't even touch.
Meant to shoot that dog long ago,
Just can't leave that dog alone.
Maria carry a rifle.
Maria carry a dog on her back.
That dog is hit again.
That slow dog is hit again,
With his see-thru skin,
The kind of skin you can see through.
He's shot again.
He's shot again.
He's shot a-a-a-a-a-a.
He's shot again.
He's shot again.
He's shot a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a.
Heal me by a river.
Man retires his wife says,
But she was so sad and sick.
His heart breaks in the mud.
Thought I'd leave this world by twenty-one.
Couldn't leave that dog alone.
Maria carry a rifle.
Maria carry a dog on her back.
That dog is hit again.
That slow dog is hit again,
With his see-thru skin,
The kind of skin you can see through.
He's shot again.
He's shot again.
He's shot a-a-a-a-a-a.
He's shot again.
He's shot again.
He's shot a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a.
Maria carry a rifle.
Maria carry a dog on her back.
Maria carry you on her back.

Low Red Moon

So what, you think this is usual?
Strange moon, strange land, strange man.
Hold the hands of tiny horses,
Hold them, hold them kindly, man.
Low Red Moon,
How can you sleep like a baby,
Sleep like baby?
But you shine so different on another.
You shine different on another.
I look up, and I see
The raising of an old hope,
Brave and tattered.
A shining knight with shining eyes,
He shines around me brightly.
So now, I say this is beautiful.
I think you are strange.
Low red moon, how can you sleep like a baby,
Sleep like a baby?
But you shine so different on another.
You shine different on another.
Strange moon, strange land, strange...
You made me cry when I was young,
And I was young.
Now I've got strong arms,
Strong arms for a skinny girl,
And I say,
"He belongs to me.
He belongs to me.
He's a human bed of roses."

Feed The Tree

This old man I've talked about
Broke his own heart,
Poured it in the ground.
Big red tree grew up and out,
Throw up its leaves,
Spins round and round.
I know all this and more.
So take your hat off
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
This little squirrel I used to be
Slammed her bike down the stairs.
They put silver where her teeth had been.
Baby silvertooth,she grins and grins.
I know all this and more.
So take your hat off boy
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
Take your hat off boy
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
This old man I used to be
Spins around, around, around the tree.
Silver baby come to me.
I'll only hurt you in my dreams.
I know all this and...
I know all this and...
I know all this and more.
So take your hat off boy
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.
Take your hat off
When you're talking to me
And be there when I feed the tree.

Full Moon, Empty Heart

Sleep in now, now.
Sleep in now, now, now.
It's still night out.
Sleep in.
Don't look at me
Looking back at you,
Out the window backwards,
Out the window backwards.
Sleep.
See this child twice stolen from me,
Out the window backwards,
Out the window backwards.
Sleep in now, now.
Sleep in now, now, now.
Sleep now.
Now fall to the bed,
Put your hand in your hair.
Now fall to the tile,
Stick your finger in your eye.
That's the only way you cry.
Hey now.
Hey now.
Full moon pass the window sideways.
Hey now.
Hey now.
Sleep in now, now.
Sleep in now, now.
Sleep in now, now.
Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.

White Belly

That was some hurricane,
Rode in on the back of a heart attack.
Made a mistake on the fire escape in San Francisco.
Made my way back in a hallway in L.A.
Put on your black dress.
Float on your back.
Too long, too lame,
Now I'm gone.
Somewhere to sleep,
Somewhere to sleep,
Somewhere to scrape your body off my feet.
Put on your black dress.
Float on your back.
Too long ,too lame,
Now I'm gone
White belly up in the sun,
White belly up in the sun.
Still diving for the big one.
Put on your black dress.
Float on your back.
Put on your black dress.
Foat on your back.
Too long, too lame,
Now i'm gone
White belly up in the sun,
White belly up in the sun.

Untogether

Sour Me. Ouch!
I was friendly with this girl,
Who insisted on touching my face.
She told outrageous stories.
I believed them 'til the endings
Were changing from endings before.
She's not touching me anymore.
Untogether, I couldn't help her I got hard.
You can try your life.
You can't save the unsavably untogether.
I was shipwrecked with this frog,
Who was endlessly on testing my faith.
He made outrageous demands.
I ignored him
'Til I strapped on my boat feet
And surfed into shore.
He's not touching me anymore.
Untogether, I couldn't help him I got hard.
You can try your life.
You can't change the unchangably untogether.
Now the bird nest on my back
Keeps me turning and straining to see.
We threw outrageous parites.
We were golden.
Now the bird keeps it's distance,
And I keep my speech.
Sometimes there's no poison like a dream.
Untogether, I couldn't help it it got hard.
You can dry your eyes.
You can't hold the impossibly untogether.

Star

It's hard for a star.
Sweet sweet sweet wind
Burn off this skin.
Get it to reach sachuest beach.
I can never win
With this body I live in.
It's all right.
It's all right.
It's all right.
I'll just stand up pick up my stuff and...
Sweet sweet sweet wind
Burn off this skin.
Get it to reach sachuest beach.
I can never win
With this body I live in.
Sweet sweet sweet wind
Burn off this skin.
Sweet sweet sweet wind
Burn off this skin.
I can never win
With this body I live in.

Sad Dress

I'm so tipsy I can't seem to walk,
And you take me firmly by the hand in the dark,
And those cheekbones of yours shine in the dark.
I swear they do.
Think about Dixie, she ducked when she ran,
Made up three bad reasons to stand by her man.
(He goes). Miss the vein once.
Try, try again.
I swear (I just went).
My, my your dress says so sad,
So sad.
You don't care you just stole it somewhere.
Feel it.
Fight it.
Sleep inside it.
Your dress says so sad,
So sad.
You don't care you just stole it somewhere.
I'd chew my foot off,
I'd chew my foot off
To get out of this dress.

Stay

Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
Soloman dives for that big dusky pearl.
Soloman sighs he knows he's older than me.
Sleeps with the fishes soon.
Stay (stay) oh oh oh oh stay.
Stay (stay) oh oh oh oh stay.
Soloman crawls on the belly of God.
Soloman falls on his face in love with me.
He grows as oldas the sea deep where the fishes are.
Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
stay oh oh oh oh stay.
Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
He lives in the yard.
He keeps himself hard.
He keeps himself homeless and heartless and hard.
He sleeps under stairs
Along with the heirs of nothing,
And nothing means no one who cares.
But I love him dear,
And I love him dear,
And I've loved him hundreds of thousands of years.
Stay.
Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
(Stay with me).
Stay oh oh oh oh stay.
(Stay with me).
It's not time for me to go.
It's not time for me to go.
It's not time for me to go.
Stay.

Puberty


Covered in honey,
Showered in beer,
Now when you spin on your head like a monkey
I won't see you.
Sing a bad love song loud in my ear,
So when you spin on your head like a monkey,
I won't hear you.
I tame a bird to light where you live,
Light on your arm and bring a wild gift.
I am my mother's child.
I let my fears run wild.
Showered in honey,
Showered in beer,
Now when you spin on your head like a monkey
I won't see you.
I tame a bird to light where you live,
Light on your arm and bring a wild gift.
I send a light to shine on you.
I send a light to shine around you.
I send a light to blind you.
I am the light that shines on your eyes.
I am the light that blinds.
I tame a bird to light where you live,
Light on your arm and bring a wild gift.
I tame a bird to light where you live,
Light on your arm and bring a wild gift.

Seal My Fate

Untame my brain.
Give me a name.
Hear my faith.
Seal my fate.
Unholy and dirty words I gathered to me,
Thinking the point was keep what's mine for me,
While he's laughing.
Hear my faith.
Seal my fate.
And when you breathe, you breathe for two.
And if you think you've finally found the perfect light,
I hope it's true.
Unholy and dirty words I gathered to me,
Thinking the point was keep what's mine for me,
While he's laughing.
On every track I fractured every back,
Thinking the point was step on every crack,
And he's laughing.
Hear my faith.
Seal my fate.
And when you breathe, you breathe for two.
And if you think you've finally found the perfect light,
I hope it's true.
You say you saw him laughing.
I hope it's true.
I'd like to see it happen. I hope it's true
'Cause I can feel it.
I hope it's true.

Red

Red, you look tired.
You look older than your mother.
Where should I not touch?
What should I not kiss?
Where does it hurt?
Red, in you slumber,
You look younger, so much stronger.
Honey on your breath,
Heaven in your head.
Where does it hurt?
Red red red, oh.
So long in this house.
It's a big one, full of scarecrows, even now.
So now you look ahead to the edge
Of a bigh metal sun over sunset, overheated (over).
Welcome home, our only son.
Red red red, oh.
Mm mm come open mouth like Venus.
Mm mm come over (the) mountain like Vesuvius.
Send a rocket for Red, and he goes coo-coo.
Mm mm come open mouth like Venus.
Mm mm come over (the) mountain like Vesuvius.
Send a rocket for Red, and he goes coo-coo.
Send a rocket for Red, and he goes coo-coo.
Red red red, oh.

Silverfish

Will I be the stranger in your movie?
Is there a place for me in the patterns
That glow on your skin and your clothes?
Hold him.
Hold his thin frame in your arms
When everything flows from his skin and his clothes.
I'm flying so over it.
Silverfish line his pocket.
Silver quick he leaves.
(I don't want to know about your ill-fated love affair).
Flying so over it.
Flying so over your head.
Hold him,
When everything glows on his skin.
I've been much stranger.
I've watched you from afar.
Mow everything shows on my skin and my clothes.
I'm flying so over it.
Silverfish line his pocket.
Silver quick he leaves.
(I don't want to hear about yur poorly-timed rock career).
Flying so over it,
Flying so over your head.

Super-Connected

On your third broken window,
Your hair full of glass,
Throw your clothes in the hallway,
Just a sheet on your back.
So you're super-connected now?
All the freaks gather around,
And the crowd in your bedroom waits
For a piece of your personal space.
Are there heart strings connected
To the wings you've got slapped on your back?
Better climb in the window cause I'm closing the door.
On your third broken window,
With your hair full of glass,
Saw your clothes in the hallway,
Just a curtain on your back.
I laugh.
Are there heart strings connected
To the wings you've got slapped on your back?
Better climb in the window cause I'm closing the door.
Now I'm spinning on a dime.
Now I'm spinning on a dime.
Now I'm spinning on a dime.
Like you claim to do,
Like now, like now.
Are there heart strings connected
To the poison coming out of your mouth?
Are you super-connected?
Are you super-connected now?
I'm spinning on a dime.
Throw your clothes in the hallway,
And I'm closing the door.

The Bees

My blessed son, you...
You've got a lot to learn.
So I'm your best friend,
You love me, and
Well I'll tell you something:
"We're on the road to messy."
Now the bees behind my eyes sing "beware,"
But my bee-stung tongue wants in there.
Beware, beware, beware of me.
If your heart is not on my side,
if your heart is not on my side,
if your heart is not on my side,
You're not on my side anymore.
I steal a piece of your diary.
I don't think that looks like me.
Am I so cold, now that I'm older?
I tell you stories,
That doesn't mean you know me.
Now the bees behind my eyes sing, "beware,"
But my bee-stung tongue wants in there.
So come at me with mouth open wide,
And I, like a jerk, I crawl inside.
Beware, beware, beware of me.
If your heart is not on my side,
If your heart is not on my side,
If your heart is not on my side, you're not on my side anymore.

Little bird,
I won't prey on you.
I won't prey on you this time.
I'm your faith.
I'm your faithhealer.
I'm your faithless companion.
I'm the seed that made your perfect body.
When you sleep, I am awake.
There is a light under the ocean.
Under the ocean, there's things shining everywhere.
There is a lightkeeper under the blanket here.
Under the blanket, there's things shining down here.
Now I see you lay your perfect body down by me,
Now we're down.

Naked, naked, naked, naked.

Now They'll Sleep

Mm mm, Mm mm, Mm mm, Mm mm, Mm mm, Mm mm, Mm mm, Oh.
Now I've lost the plot.
I'm not the hero I could be,
But not the dog I was.
Kind of common cry,
Kind of common living lie.
Color my fast fading heart.
People laugh at anything,
And things just fall apart.
Kind of common cry,
Kind of common living lie.
You know the shape my breath will take before I let it out.
Stand like you did when I was beauty-marked in your eyes.
Now they'll sleep on lies.
Now eyes burn circles in the dark,
And when the mirror talks to me,
I listen with my heart.
Kind of common cry,
Kind of common living lie.
You know the shape my breath will take before I let it out.
Stand like you did when I was beauty-marked in your eyes.
Now they'll sleep all right.
You know the shape my breath will take before I let it out.
Stand like you did when I was beauty-marked in your eyes.
Stand like you did when I was beauty-marked in your eyes.
One common cry do do do do.
One common cry do do do do.
One common cry do do do do.
One common cry do do do do oh-ooo.

L'il Ennio

I wasn't there,
But I heard there were flowers in his hair.
Though not yet born to her,
I know there was something magic about
The way she held her own.
I know it's hard for the young ones.
I know it.
Accutely, I heard it.
Race me through this heart-broken town.
Bang yur boots and keep your head down.
Race me through the heart of this broken town.
I use the voices of sandmen
To bring you home.
I know it's wrong, you're a young one.
I know it.
Accutely, I hear it.
Race me through this heart-broken town.
Bang your boots and keep your head down.
Race me through the heart of this broken town.
So now I make you pray to god.

Judas My Heart

Where I live,
There's a blanket of gauze,
And it covers the scars of the drunks
Who are hungry as ever.
Where I live,
There's a blanket of sighs,
And it covers the stars.

I'm as hungry as ever.
This is the room where we met.
Where I live,

Who walks everywhere on her hands.
Doesn't trust where her feet want to take her.

She don't trust where her feet want to take her(not in here).

Inside this room.

Can I get a witness when you Judas my heart again?
Can I get a witness when you do this to my heart again?
Can I get a witness when you Judas my heart again?
Where I live,
There's a lady who walks everywhere on her hands.
Just like me doesn't trust
Where her feet want to take her again
And her feet want to take her again
And her feet want to take her again.
She loves me, yeah, yeah, yeah.
She loves me, yeah, yeah, yeah.


Sweet Ride - The Best Of

Spaceman

I can see the heat pour off of me.
I can see it burns you too, brother.
I can see the strength you took from me.
I can see it sapped you too, brother,
But we're not angels.
We're not fools.
Danger.
Danger.
I can see your allegiance to me
I can see the way you put your arm out to me,
And I'm no fun anymore.
But we're not angels.
We're not cool.
Danger.
Danger.
She said "I'm not a unicorn.
You'll always find another one,"
And, "you're not a dying sun.
There's always another ray to your heart."
I'm holding out.
I'm holding out for a spaceman,
For a spaceman,
For the spaceman.
She said, "I'm not a unicorn.
Go out and get another one.
You're not a dying sun.
There's always another ray to your heart."
I'm holding out.
I'm holding out for a spaceman,
For a spaceman,
Brother spaceman.
I can see the heat pour off of me.

Broken

He crys out her eyes,
A fire unfurnaced.
The curve of her spine
Is heaven unbound,
But heaven is harsh,
A fire unfaithful
Like a bird that you hold in your palm.
I know where you hang.
I drive by there often.
I spy on the circus
You make of your friends.
Heaven is harsh,
A fire unfaithful
Like a bird that you hold in your palm.
Broken eyes in your head.
Broken arms at your side.
Broken bird on a string.
Shake it till she sings,
And you reel that sucker in
By that broken baby wing,
And you shake her till she sings,
And you shake her till she sings.
He cries out her eyes,
As blue as her fingers.
The curve of her ass
Is unparalleled.
Heaven is harsh,
A fire ungrateful
Like the bird you hold in your palm.
Broken eyes in your head.
Broken arms at your side.
Broken bird on a string.
Shake it till she sings,
And you reel that sucker in
By the broken baby wing,
And you shake her till she sings,
And you shake her till she sings.

*** Thanx a lot to Beagle who corrected this one ***

Hot Burrito #1

Written by Gram Parsons and Chris Ethridge.

You may be sweet and nice,
But that won't keep you warm at night
'Cause I'm the one who showed you how
To do the things you're doing now.
He may feel all your charms.
He might hold you in his arms,
But I'm the one who let you in.
I was right beside you in the end.
Once upon a time,
You let me feel you deep inside,
But nobody knew, nobody saw.
Do you remember the way we cried?
I'm your toy.
I'm your old boy,
But I don't want no one
But you to love me.
No, I wouldn't lie.
You know I'm not that kind of guy.

Trust In Me

Written by Sherman and Sherman.

Hold still please.
Trust in me,
Just in me.
Close your eyes,
And trust in me.
We can sleep safe and sound,
Knowing I am around.
Slip into silent slumber.
Sail on a silver mist.
Slowly but surely,
Your senses will cease to resist.
Slip into silent slumber.
Sail on a silver mist.
Slowly but surely,
Your senses will cease to resist.
Trust in me,
Just in me.
Shut your eyes,
And trust in me.
You can sleep safe and sound,
Knowing I am around.

Judas Mon Coeur

Où je vis
Je vois des voiles descendre cacher nos blessures
Pauvres gens perdus seuls comme hier
Où je vis
Des sanglots se lèvent et vont voiler les etoiles
Une femme va ici et là sur les mains
Elle a peur de suivre la voie de ses pas
Où je vis
Une femme va ici et là sur les mains
Elle a peur de suivre la voie de ses pas
Oh, je ne veux que toi
J'avais cette robe la
Qui n'a jamais peur de rien quand on revient sur le soir
La lune se noie
Autour de moi
La lune se noie
Autour de moi
Et elle me fait voir qui tu es, qui tu es
Judas mon coeur
Judas mon coeur
Où je vis
Des sanglots se lèvent et vont voiler les étoiles
Et mon coeur a besoin de vie comme hier
Où je vis
Je vais et je viens ici et la sur mes mains
Et j'ai peur de suivre la voie de mes pas
Oh, je ne veux que toi
J'avais cette robe la
Je n'ai jamais peur de rien
Ne dis plus et c'est moi que voila
La lune se noie
Autour de moi
La lune se noie
Autour de moi
Et elle me fait voir qui tu es, qui tu es
Judas mon coeur, Judas mon coeur
Judas mon coeur, Judas mon coeur
Je vais chanter le même
Qui tu me feras ???
Oui, je vais chanter
Je vais chanter le même
Qui tu me feras ???
Oui, je vais chanter
Je vais chanter le même
Qui tu me feras ???
Oui, je vais chanter
Où je vis
Une femme s'en va sur ses mains
Elle laisse comme moi essayer
Par la voie où ses pas, où ses pas la mène
Par la voie où ses pas, où ses pas la mène
Par la voie où ses pas, où ses pas la mène
Par la voie où ses pas, où ses pas la mène
Où ses pas la mène
She loves me
Yeah, yeah...

Are You Experienced?

Written by Jimi Hendrix.

If you can just get your mind together,
And come on across to me.
We'll hold hands
And then we'll watch the sunrise from the bottom of the sea.
But first, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
I have (I have). I've.
I know you probably scream and cry,
But your little world won't let you go.
But who in your mealsy little world are you trying to prove
To you that you're made of gold.
So, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
I have (I have). I have been.
Trumpets and violins I hear in the distance.
I think they're calling our names.
Maybe now you can live and that you would.
If you're lonely,
Hold my hand.
But first, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
I have.

Thief

She wears her dress high
As high as she pulls her hat down low.
She's seeking out the places
Those other people can't go and hold her.
Untouched by the sea,
She's walking on water when she walks in her sleep.
She's dragging me through places
I didn't want to be seen.
She's a liar,
As I am a thief.
Because of you I came,
Because of you I leave.
I wanna know (I wanna know)
Why the monsters that hurt you so
Don't look like those things that
We battled so long ago.
And I thought I did my part,
When I pulled you out of there.
That night you left foot marks on my wall.
You are my liar,
So I will be your thief.
Because of you I came,
Because of you I leave.
Because of you we are home now.

Lilith

In my garden
We were golden
Then you walked away
In my garden
You were something there
You walked away

Buried in my garden
And I'll see you in hell
Buried in my garden
And I, I will catch you in heaven
I was buried in my garden
Buried my shell
That once buried in my garden
Buried my shell

I would follow you through eden
Just to swallow what is written
I would follow you through even this
And swallow what is written

Be there in my garden
Be there in my garden

In my garden
We were golden
Then you walked away
You were safer in my garden
Then you walked away

Buried in my garden
And I'll see you in hell
Buried in my garden
And I,
I will catch you in heaven
I was buried in my garden
Buried my shell
I was buried in my garden
Buried my shell

Be there in my garden
Be there in my garden
Bury me here in my garden
Stand by me here in my garden
I was buried in my garden
I was buried in my garden

Dream On Me

Hey bitchery,
You stole enough from me.
I gotta go.
I gotta go home now
In this misery.
You've had enough of me.
I gotta go.
I gotta go home now
Where there's easy love,
And there's easy life.
Dream on me
When you sleep.
Keep your head
Where you said it would be.
Dream on me
When you sleep.
Keep your head like you said.
Hey bitchery,
You stole enough from me.
I gotta go.

And there's easy life.

When you sleep.
Keep your head where you said it would be.
Dream on me
When you sleep.
Keep your head like you said,
And you said, like you said, like you said.
Dream on me X3

Sweet Ride

Climbing out,
We stumble around,
All smoky and soaked to the bone.
I carry the crown of a girl underground.
I'm down for a sweet ride.
I'm down for a sweet ride.
I'm down for a sweet ride,
So follow me down.
Once was lost now am found.
This is my dream.
Coming down,
And smiling too loud.
Smoking and soaked to the bone,
We wear my mistake like a crown.
Once was lost now am found.
I'm down for a sweet ride.
I'm down for a sweet ride.
I'm down for a sweet ride.
I'm down.
I'm down for a sweet ride.
(I lost him too).
I'm down for a sweet ride.
(And my vow made it new).
I'm down for a sweet ride,
(I lost it too).
So follow me down.
Once was lost now am found.
Once was lost now am found.
This is my dream.

Dancing Gold

Is there a tree
That grows the fruit I need?
Something sour to make me sweet.
Ok, I'll eat.
Ok, I'll eat.
Ok, I'll eat.
Nothing better than a frozen tree
(Deep pulling down down).
Someone's frozen bag of oranges.
Stick my tongue in their mouth.
Ok, I'll eat.
Ok, I'll eat.
Ok, I'll eat.
Will you go when the water goes?
Will you go dancing gold?
Don't put me in your heart.
I'll outgrow it, I'll outgrow it, I'll outgrow it.
Dancing gold, orange grove.
Is there a seed to plant the tree
That grows the fruit I need?
Something sour to make me sweet.
Ok, I'll eat.
Ok, I'll eat.
Ok, I'll eat.
Will you go when the water goes?
Will you go dancing gold?
Don't put me in your heart.
I'll outgrow it, I'll outgrow it, I'll outgrow it.
Dancing gold, orange grove.
Will you go when the water goes?
Will you go dancing gold?
Dancing gold, orange grove.
Dancing gold, orange grove (dancing gold, orange grove).
Dancing gold, orange grove.
Dancing gold, orange grove (dancing gold, orange grove).
Dancing gold, orange grove.
Dancing gold, orange grove (dancing gold, orange grove).
Dancing gold, orange grove.
Dancing gold, orange grove.

It's Not Unusual

Written by Gordon Mills and Leslie Reed.

It's not unusual to be loved by anyone.
It's not unusual to have fun with anyone,
But when I see you hanging around with anyone,
It's not unusual to see me cry.
Oh, I wanna die.
It's not unusual to go out at anytime,
But when I see you out and about,
It's such a crime.
If you should ever wanna be loved by anyone,
It's not unusual.
It happens everyday,
No matter what you say,
You know it happens all the time.
Love will never do what you want it to.
Why can't this crazy love be mine?
It's not unusual to be mad with anyone.
It's not unusual to be sad with anyone,
But if I ever found that you'd change at anytime,
It's not unusual to find out I'm in love with you.

Sexy S

This thing is so hard to load,
And I can't aim (I can't aim).
I can't swim,
But I can turn this into gold
On the wings of the angel who left you here.
Sadie, Sadie, you got a bonfire in your hair,
Must be heaven in there.
Sadie,Sadie, you got beach bonfire hair,
And it truns crazy red,
When I touch you there,
When I touch you there.
Let the gods turn away.
Let the gods turn away.
This wave is so hard to hold,
And I can't swim (I can't swim).
I can't swim,
But I can turn this into gold.
Hit the water in slow-mo like angels in air.
Sadie, Sadie, you got a bonfire in your hair,
Must be heaven in there.
Sadie,Sadie, you got beach bonfire hair,
And it truns crazy red,
When I touch you there,
When I touch you there.
Let the gods turn away.
Let the gods turn away.

Baby's Arm

Slow down.
Slow down.
Arms too tired to take up.
Baby takes up arms.
Arms too tired to reach my face
And break it.
Baby tags along, along.
Lips too wide to preach about it.
Hips too wide to reach around it.
Arms too tired to reach my face
And break it.
Baby tag along, along.
Honey ride with me,
Be my company.
Honey ride and let some good thing
Come and rip me through my jeans (honey ride with me),
Rip me through my jeans (honey ride with me).
Slow down.
Slow down.
Slow down.
I'm allowed to take this shit and blow it.
I'm allowed a quiet type, know it.
I'm too tired to reach my face and break it.
Honey tag along, along.
Honey ride with me.
Be my company.
Honey ride and let some thing
Come and rip me through my jeans (honey ride with me),
Rip me through my jeans (honey ride with me).
Honey ride with me.
Honey ride with me.
Honey ride with me.
Be my company.
Please baby, please baby, please.

Diamond Rib Cage

This poisoned honeymoon.
This person is gonna blow out soon.
Bad hair day,
Bad breath,
These nightmares are boring me to death.
They're boring me to death,
To death.
My heart is a diamond rib cage.
Unloveable, but love, mmm, I'm amazed.
My heart is a diamond rib cage,
Busted out, boy, busted out.
I'm twisted in flight.
I spin like clockwork,
Always out of time.
Bad hair day,
Bad breath,
These nightmares are gonna be my death.
They're boring me to death,
To death.
My heart is a diamond rib cage.
Unloveable, but love, mmm, I'm amazed.
My heart is a diamond rib cage,
Busted out, boy, busted out,
Busted out.
My heart is a diamond.
My heart is a diamond.

John Dark

I went in like Joan,
No voice to guide me
And carry a picture
In my teeth.
A wedding like Joan's,
No voice to guide me.
I carry a picture
In my teeth.
Next time I'm feeling better
I'll keep my lips together.
I'll wear my leather sweater
And never once forget her.
Your dilated eyes
And guarded paradise,
you carry a picture of Joan.
I know you're upset
Because you haven't shaved your legs,
And you're not a woman,
Who might think that was European.
Do words stand alone?
Will words stand behind you?
Will words burn a picture
In your teeth?
Next time I'm feeling better
I'll keep my legs together.
I'll wear my leather sweater
And never once forget her.
Next time I'm feeling better,
I'll put my hands together.
I'll waive my right to pleasure
And keep my legs together.

Think About Your Troubles

Written by Harry Nilsson

Sit beside the breakfast table.
Think about your troubles.
Pour yourself a cup of tea,
And think about the bubbles.
You can take your teardrops and drop 'em in a teacup.
Take em down to the riverside,
And throw em over the east side
To be swept up by a current
And taken to the ocean
To be eaten by some fishes,
Who were eaten by some fishes
And swallowed by a whale,
Who grew so old,
He decomposed.
He died and left his body
To the bottom of the ocean.
Now everybody knows that when a body decomposes
The basic elements are given back to the ocean,
Then sea does what it oughta:
Consume the salty water (not too good for drinkin'),
'Cause it tastes just like a teardrop (so you run it through a filter),
And it comes out of the faucet (when it pours into the teapot),
Which is just about to bubble.
Now think about your troubles.
Now,are you sleeping?
Can you hear me now?
