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

One of alternative rock's most promising — and frustrating — bands, the Breeders were conceived initially as a way for Pixies bassist Kim Deal and Throwing Muses guitarist Tanya Donelly to let out some suppressed creative energy and to take a break from being the second bananas in each of their main bands. Deal and Donelly both played guitar, leaving bass for Josephine Wiggs of Perfect Disaster. Taking their name from the group Deal led with her twin sister, Kelley, in their teens, the Breeders combined the spareness of Throwing Muses with the shifting dynamics and warped pop sensibilities of the Pixies. Pod, their critically acclaimed debut album, was released in 1990. Two years later, the group delivered Safari, a four-song EP that found the band getting more muscular and melodic. Soon after its recording, Donelly left the Breeders to form her own group, Belly. Kim Deal brought in her sister Kelley as her replacement. By this time, their permanent drummer was Jim MacPherson, who was billed as "Mike Hunt" on Safari. 1992 also saw the group play its first high-profile gigs, opening for Nirvana on their European tour. As the Breeders were working on their new album in the beginning of 1993, the Pixies split, leaving Kim Deal able to pursue the Breeders full-time. Released late in the summer of 1993, Last Splash was a hazier, more disjointed continuation of the hard pop of Safari. With the sonic collage of "Cannonball," the Breeders had a crossover hit that catapulted the group into stardom; within a year, the album had gone platinum and the band had a prime spot on 1994's Lollapalooza tour. That year, the group also released the limited-edition 7" Head to Toe and Divine Hammer singles that year, both of which confirmed the Breeders as a quirky, artistically willful group that was nevertheless in tune with the commercial pop tastes of the early '90s. Just as quickly as success hit the band, the Breeders went on a sudden hiatus, partly due to exhaustion from the rapid nature of their fame and from their extensive touring. Late in 1994, Kelley was arrested for drug possession and was sent to a rehab clinic in Minnesota; the rest of the band went their separate ways while she recuperated. Wiggs played with musicians around New York, ultimately forming the Josephine Wiggs Experience with them; Kim returned to Dayton with MacPherson, learned how to play the drums, and continued writing songs. By early 1995, Kim had an album's worth of new material ready to record. Though she considered recording them on her own, Deal decided to assemble a backing band of MacPherson and other Dayton-area musicians, including Nathan Farley and Luis Lerma of the Tasties. Not surprisingly, the Amps — originally called Tammy & the Amps — sounded like a rougher, lo-fi version of the Breeders; their gigs and their 1995 album Pacer emphasized the loose, charming spontaneity of Deal's style.

Though the Breeders' break was supposed to be temporary, it ended up lasting far longer than the band or its fans could have expected. Indeed, the lineup that recorded Last Splash never regrouped: Wiggs recorded with the Josephine Wiggs Experience and later formed Dusty Trails with Luscious Jackson's Vivian Trimble; after Kelley completed her rehab, she formed her own solo project, the Kelley Deal 6000. She toured and released an album with this group, 1996's Go to the Sugar Altar, which reflected on addiction of all sorts in a very Breeders-esque manner. By that year, however, Kim reclaimed the Breeders name and played some California dates with the band, which was basically the Amps' lineup with the addition of violinist Carrie Bradley (who played on Pod). In 1997, the Breeders played the Tim Taylor Memorial Benefit Concert — in honor of Brainiac's singer/keyboardist, who was killed in a car accident earlier that year — with that group's drummer Tyler Trent replacing MacPherson, who later joined Guided by Voices. Later that year, Kim went into the studio in one of many frustrated attempts to make the third Breeders album. However, the group's low profile didn't mean that it didn't have any hits; a sample from "Cannonball" used in the Prodigy's worldwide smash "Firestarter" earned Kim songwriting credits — and royalties. By early 1998, Kelley had rejoined the band and the duo continued to write and record songs, though the only song to surface from any of their sessions was a cover of 3 Degrees' "Collage," which appeared on the soundtrack to 1999's big-screen adaptation of The Mod Squad. Though a new Breeders album was hotly anticipated later that year — and then in 2000 — it didn't arrive. In 2000, Kim and Kelley spent time in the studio with Steve Albini; late that year, the Breeders played their first gig in over three years (and Kim's first show with Kelley in over six) at a free, secret show in Los Angeles. Once again, the Breeders' lineup had changed, with bassist Mando Lopez, guitarist Richard Presley (both formerly of Fear), and drummer Jose Medeles backing the Deal sisters. The group reconvened in the studio with Albini in 2001, finally completing an album's worth of songs. The Breeders began a flurry of activity in 2002, beginning with a club tour that winter and the release of the Off You and Huffer singles and their long-awaited third album, Title TK, that spring. The group embarked on more extensive tours of Europe and the U.S. after the album's release. After a quiet 2003, Deal was once again in the news in 2004 when the Pixies announced they were reuniting for tours of North America and Europe, and possibly to record another album.

Glorious

Da-da...
Ahhh...

Hold my breath for three more year
Yeah, three years
On my own on Saturdays

It's glorious [2x]

We were tired from the tea
Scrabbled when we slept
Through the window came the rain

It's glorious [6x]

Being tired from the tea
Hold my breath for three more year
Yeah, three years
On my own on Saturdays

It's glorious [3x]

I walk to where he's sitting
It's all salty [2x]
(He knows) It's good, it's real, it's pretty
It's all salty Timmy [2x]

(He said) Doe [3x]

Dared leave
We've burned the field completely
Ahhh... last light
I feel it's real, it's pretty
It's all salty Timmy [3x]

(He said) Doe [3x]


Happiness is a warm gun

She's not a girl who misses much
Do-do-do, oh yeah
She's well acquainted
With the touch of a velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane

Man in the crowd
With the multicoloured mirrors
On his hobnail boots

Lying with his eyes
While his hands are busy
Working overtime

The sole confession of his wife
Which he ate and donated to the
National Trust

I need a fix cause I'm going down
Down to the abyss that I've left up town
I need a fix cause I'm going down

Mother Superior jumped the gun *6

Happiness is a warm gun *4
(Bang, bang, shoot, shoot)


A guy: Josephine, do you think you are going bald?
Josephine: No. You've asked me that before and the answer was no then.

Oh!

Oh
Last flight
Get lost in the moss
Oh, oh
Fall in the neon mine
Push me down [3x]

Still rolling in the stones
Run to the log that's rotten
And oh, oh
Your soft belly bossing lows
Push me down [3x]

Run to the log that's rotten
Your soft belly bossing lows
Push me down [3x]


Hellbound

It lives in folds of red and steamy air
It lives in misery

Hellbound

Oh, oh we're falling
Falling down
Down...

It lives, dispite the knives internal
It lives marry me

Hellbound

Oh, we're falling
Falling down
Down...

It lives in misery

Hellbound

When I was a painter

In side lakes of corduroy I've been
Heard stories of velveteen
Twenty hours later I fill the room
With bad sex and bad TV

Go, go, go [2x]

When I was a painter I painted you well
Too bad I have to die
You brought the essentials, perversion appeal
And many lovers at one time

Go, go, go [2x]
Now, now

In side lakes of corduroy I've been
Heard stories of velveteen
Twenty hours later I fill the room
With bad sex and bad TV

Go, go, go *2
Now, now


Fortunately gone

I wait for you in heaven
On this perfect string of love
And drink your soup of magpies in a
Pottery bowl that looks
As I am now, brown, round and warm

Chime on a rain wet
An ankle, toes or two
Sweetly as it drops upon your head
Just like it did today

Fortunately gone
I wait for you

Chime on a rain wet
An ankle, toes or two
Sweetly as it drops upon your head
Just like it did today

Fortunately gone
I wait for you (chorus *2)

Iris

Four hours in the pot, one hour out
It grows and I sleep standing up
When Iris sleeps over
What a book she'll write
Oh last night
Oh come on, nobody wants that
Sister, sister, Oh...
We tried hour by hour
Hour by hour *2

Four hours to daylight, four hours and then
Pour water on me til I live again
When Iris sleeps over
It'll be alright
All last night
But come on, nobody wants that
Sister, sister, oh...
We tried hour by hour
Hour by hour *2

Opened

Walking on his highways
We leave the land
And float inside the dark, black water

Robin flies again

She flew low over the highways
And I saw the wind
Blowing back her barbie doll hair

Robin flies again

And in a kitchen in Kentucky
She thinks she's Peter Pan
And in the bottom of a concrete basement

Robin flies again

Only in 3's

Oh...
Back burns are green and off for me and her
He's an ape, he's an ape, he's an angel

Only in 3's, oh...
Only in 3's, oh yeah
Only in 3's, oh...

Oh...
Hay for a bed with her on my head
And you are the king, the same king who will burn me

Only in 3's, oh...
Only in 3's, oh yeah
Only in 3's, oh...

Lime house

I walk by, I fall down
For warm black tar forms balls
And black tar baby

I'm in a lime house *4

Fall..., stay for good
Oh live and live and live in the dark baby
Tar baby

I'm in a lime house *8

Metal man

I don't know how old I was
But it was a '65 pickup
I was lying on the ground
With flat iron bars over my head

One silver drop is all you need
To put a hole in your head at 2000 degrees
That's right man, you be the Metal Man
At 2000 degrees

That's hot *2

And over my head the hot wire was sparking
I got something down on my chest
And it began to bubble

I was her parent, my three in a tree
When a drip dropped down on me
That's right man, I'm the Metal Man
At 2000 degrees

That's hot

Last splash

New year

We have come for light
Wholly, we have come for light
It's true
I am the sun

I am the rain

Cannonball

Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell... crash
I'm the last splash
I know you, little libertine
I know you're a real koo koo

Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]

I know you, little libertine
I know you're a cannonball
I'll be you're whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song

Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]

Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell... crash
I'm the last splash
I'll be you're whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song

Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]

Invisible man

He's the Invisible Man
Count the bubbles in your hand
The southern skies
And the summer sites

That's all that's left behind
The skies, and a sweet caress
He's the Invisible Man
Catch him if you can

You're nowhere in sight (just imagine that)
Nothing excites you (baby, that's a fact)
Open your eyes
Look and you will find

That's all that's left behind... the skies
And a sweet caress
The skies, the sights
And a sweet caress
He's the Invisible Man
Catch him if you can

That's all that's left behind... the skies
And a sweet caress
The skies, the sights
And a sweet caress
He's the Invisible Man
Catch him if you can

No aloha

No bye, no aloha
Gone with a rock promoter
A rock promoter
I know, I saw
And now may die

O the treats
Saw it on the wall
Motherhood means mental freeze
(Freezeheads)
No aloha
I know, I saw
And now may die

No bye, no aloha
Gone with a rock promoter
A rock promoter
I know, I saw
And now may die

Roi

Raw: where the shot leaves me gagging for the arrow
 
Do you love me now ?

 If I saw you now
Could I look in your eyes?

Do you think of me
Like I dream of you?

Do you wish you were here
Like I wish I was with you?

You've loved me before
Do you love me now?

Does love ever end
When two hearts have torn away?
Or does it go on
And beat strong anyway?
You've loved me before
Do you love me now?

Come back to me right now!
C'mon c'mon come back to me right now!

C'mon c'mon come back to me right now!
C'mon c'mon come on!

You've loved me before
Do you love me now?

You've loved me before
Do you love me now?

I just wanna get along

We were rich once
Before your head exploded
Imagine doing just what the Big Bang did
The whole world
Knew it was loaded
Wave bye-bye 'cause it ain't ever coming down now

I just wanna get along [2x]

I look up
The heads fly over
I see a boy I know: his hair's on fire
The whole world I discovered
If you're so special why aren't you dead

I just wanna get along [3x]

Wave bye-bye 'cause it ain't never coming down

I just wanna get along [3x]

I'd bang it all day
Oh the carpenter goes bang

Waiting to be followed
It disappears this near
You're the rod I'm water

I like all the different people
I like sticky everywhere
Look around, you bet I'll be there!
Hot metal in the sun
Pony in the air
Sooey and saints at the fair

Walk in ... squares
The hid are out, out for the year
It's a lot of face
A lot of crank air
Eroding around here

Summer's ready
Summer is ready when you are

I like all the different people
I like every kind of fair
In the crowd, you bet I'll be there!
Walkin' around
Going nowhere
Seeing Sooey and saints at the fair

Summer is ready when you are [2x]
Summer's ready
Summer is ready when you are
Summer's ready
Summer is ready when you are

It's a lot of face, crank air
Walking ... squares

Summer is ready when you are

Drivin' on

Drivin' on nine
You could be a shadow
Beneath the streat light
Behind my home

Drivin' on nine
I sure miss you
Pass a motel
Looking at the piles

Drivin' on nine
Looking for the thirty
Maybe I passed it
Go another mile

Drivin' on nine [2x]

Drivin' on nine
I sure look pretty
Carson City
Walking down the isle

Drivin' on nine
Does daddy have a shutgun
He said he'd never need one
Go another mile

Drivin' on nine

Drivin' on nine
Looking out my window cell
Wondering if I want you still
Wondering what's right

Drivin' on nine [3x]


Title TK

**** Thanx a lot to Joe for these lyrics ***

Little Fury

Round up, holler girl. Ah, I will sing.
Title TK, if I don't black out.

Dumb made for fucking and missing from the party.
That boy spun out.
Hold what you've got.

While Xenia twists up the sky,
Akron flakes out.
Grindcore, little fury,
I feel hot tire.
Why is it floating in my beer?
Hold what you've got.

My big drum on your big face,
The one-eyed jazz as hickeys fade.

Round up, holler girl..
We'll all need bigger uniforms.
It's been a few days
And I know I will have spun out.
Hold what you've got.

My big drum on your big face,
The one-eyed jazz as hickeys fade.
Grindcore, little fury, if I don't black out.

Hold what you've got.

London Song

Victory's a blue and bruisin' voice.
I'm leaking pure white noise.
Mercy here gets meaner overnight.
It's Jersey sheer, it's outta sight.
Misery's fun, I'm kissing everyone.
I gotta hold my tongue.

Off You

I've laid this island sun a thousand times.
I'm on it, but I'm going strange.
This island's chills and shell cover me
With winded rock
And skies I've yet to see.
I tried!
I even sent in friends.
They did it as a favor 'cause I'm not that way.
I am the autumn in the scarlet.
I am the make-up on your eyes.

I land to sail, island said.
Yeah, we're movin'. Yeah, we're movin'.
This island's sun I've laid a thousand times.
Fortune me, fortune me of all my mistakes.
I think I lent you late.

But I've never seen a starlet or a riot or the violence of you.

I land to sail, island said.
Yeah, we're movin'.

The She

Ripped off, you smoked the Bible.
Rolled it up, your last breath hot on my back.
You get me started, try to get somewhere
You move so slow, you're not even here.

Dear traveller,
It's my death, my rhythm, my arithmetic.
I got used to nobody riding in the back.

Sorrow blowin' through the vents,
I'm over Houston.
You're over the night we met.

Dear traveller,
The she scared electricity
Where no human carries a map.
You say you gotta burn to shine,
But every prism unwinds.
A road to ruin and this ticket's mine.

Dear traveller

Too Alive

I took off!

When will will make no way steal it,
Like I found speed on the mic.
I can't shut up.

We're street illegal.
Red hot in ports, swinger.

The thoughts of scene a crime,
Steal and all race out of my mind.
I give up!

We reckless op'ed and in a hot import,
Now words I'll always say.
Since I found speed on the mic, I can't shut up.

To girls that love to haunt, the U.S is made
To streak her letterman back and forth.

Son of Three

I got an empty case of wip-its
No more time on the meter.

Daybreak, about face, I think I'm comin'
Cross another county line
Are we there?
Convertible cooking with nitrous,
Crackin' in the air.
I am the sign of Go.

While last nights stars were high,
Now they're popping in the sky.
And the band is jammin' in.

Daybreak, I don't like it.
Better tonight, better for you.

Buzzing with flourescence,
I don't know what it wants from me.
If I find the door,
I am the son of Go.

And the band is movin' in.
That's what you get.
That's what you get
When there's no time left on the meter.

You get an empty case of wip-its
And a boyfriend with a beeper.

Put On A Side

Better I
Better I stayed up
Better mono
Put on A side.

Full On Idle

Say you're one man's taste
"Want what?" Fall and break
We've seen the dream, folks, in our day
What? Fought The Father the Pope
Finally sent away

Warden, lock it
Free love's fought our battles thru the day
We were full on idle,
A lot of them say,
"Obey your colorist,
Bleach it all away

Free reign, good rest
Break, every brunette in the way
When we're full on idle,
A lot of them say,
"Obey your violence"
Well, It's kinda late

Say you're one man's date
Want WHAT? fall and break
We were full on idle,
A lot of them say,
"Obey your violence,

Look close
Hate
Tide all white
Row on the glass surf
He pulled the paddle
Okay with me
In silence
What I'd like to do
With your violin
And it's bow

Sinister Foxx

No one break for me,
I just go life.
I'm in beer class every Thursday night.

I was choppered out of sea life,
Bad advice filled the air.
Valour, ready, right?
Go on, get the mayor.

Jumped tank and leavin' broth of thieves.
Has anyone seen the iguana?

No one broke for me,
I just o life.
I'm in cedars every single night.

Swarmed and choppered out of sea life,
Bad advice fills the air.
Has anyone seen the iguana?

Forced to Drive

Life forced to drive us,
Spent the whole trip
Tryin' to go my way.

Pity for me, tattoo a wow.
What a mile!
Where are tonight's crimes going?

Innocent, I caught a lawman's daughter
Who tried turnin' it up to unwind.

Between the soles, under the stories,
Waiting below - a star-hit clock.

If I
Offer to drive,
Just know where your lifeline's going.

Toil toil toil til I get sick

Chained to the ground, no flyin' for you.
If you want it bad, you gotta steal your own fuel.
Torn, toiled, and troubled.

Torn, toiled, and troubled.

Nothing you came to believe
Or what you decided last night
Still the sun shines
Hits my shield and ignites

We're gonna rise

Feel the light on my face
Out of rank, out of range

No council, no grand strategy
No sword to fall on
No rules about our dull fate
Just the light on my face

We're gonna rise
Feel the light on my face
We're gonna rise
Feel the light on my face
Out of rank, out of range

Speak of man's great thoughts
I'll tell the story or not

Nothing you came to believe
Or what you decided last night
Still the sun shines
The sun shines

We're gonna rise
Feel the light on my face
We're gonna rise
Feel the light on my face

Stinging my eyes enthralled (?)

Clouds were bruised when the day broke

I went abroad, wrote a line home
Wouldn't write again
'Til the cruel year was gone

My lips
Kisses cotton (?)
Got stuck here forever

Clouds were bruised when the day broke
Clouds were bruised when the day broke
Clouds were bruised when the day broke

It's where you are

Come on in
On in, on in
Istanbul, Istanbul

Come on in
On in, on in
Come on in
On in, on in

Where are you going
To the city
Where are you going
To the city
Where are you going
Istanbul

Walk it Off

No pursuits in the dusk
And no amusements in the house
Waiting for mercury to fall

All game no plot
Talk it down, walk it off
Trying to get rid of the friends that I've got

Oh mercury
Oh mercury
I've been waiting for a message all night

Now the singer gets laid
And the drummer gets paid
I wait for mercury to fall
Nobody's allowed to fight
'Til the band starts playin tonight

Oh mercury, oh mercury
Oh mercury, oh mercury

Hey your mascot am I not!
Let's go work it out!
Oh mercury
I've been waiting for the message all night

No game no plot
Talk it down, walk it off
Mercury fall

Oh mercury, oh mercury
Oh mercury, oh mercury
Oh mercury, oh mercury
Is falling

Regálame esta noche

( Roberto Cantoral )

No quiero que te vayas
La noche está muy fría
Abrígame en tus brazos
Hasta que vuelva el día

Tu almohada esta impaciente
De acariciar tu cara
Tal vez te dé un consejo
Tal vez no diga nada

Mańana muy temprano
Platicarás conmiga
Y si estás decidida
A abandonar el nido

Entonces será en vano
Tratar de detenerte
Regálame esta noche
Retrásame la muerte

Entonces será en vano
Tratar de detenerte
Regálame esta noche
Retrásame la muerte

Give me this night

( Translation )

Don't want you to go
The night is too cold
Shelter me in your arms
Until daybreak

Your pillow is impatient
To caress your face
Might give you an advice
Might not say anything

Tomorrow very early
You'll talk with me
And if you're decided
To leave the nest

Then it'll be in vain
To try to stop you
Give me this night
Delay my death

Then it'll be in vain
To try to stop you
Give me this night
Hold back my death

Here No More

Not lost but gone before
Here no more, here no more
Each day the long light dims and fades
Not lost but gone before

Creation sings mountains bring
Age is born through memory and lore
Upon a saw tall timbers fall
Here no more, here no more

The light shines close echos low
Of your sweet voice I weep and mourn
Upon a saw tall timbers fall
Here no more, here no more

Not lost but gone before
Here no more, here no more
Each day the long light dims and fades
Not lost but gone before
Each day the long light dims and fades
Not lost but gone before

No way

No way
Stay here
Too bad
A mistake
one time

No way
No way
No way

Stop now
Stand by
What now
What now

Stop
Stop stop

Stay here
Stand by
No way
Only one time

Stay
Too bad
No
No way

What now
What now
What now
One time
No way
There's no way

Stop
Too bad
Stand by
Stop stop
Stand by

No way
No way
No way
No
No way

What now
What now
One time
One time
No way
There's no one
Stop
Stop stop

Stop

It's the love

Oh, Oh
We belong
To the spaces
Between our love and hate
And social places

Oh, Oh
We belong
To the choices
You make between your ears and hear
Funny voices

But it’s the love
It’s the love
It’s the love, love, love, love, love, love
It’s the love

Oh, Oh
We belong
To the faces
Between our love and hate
And all their <unknown>

Oh, Oh
We belong
To the choices
You make between your ?? and ??
And funny ???

But it’s the love
It’s the love
It’s the love, love, love, love, love, love
It’s the love

Wooh!

It’s the love
Love
It’s the love, love, love, love, love, love
It’s the love

*** Thanx a lot to Gary for this one ***

Mountain Battles

My heart's so full and fat
Go get her
A mouth full of low (?)
A bog of faith
Sue a ballet (?)

Mountain battles
Indoctered minds
I ride shot gun
From the facility

Whistling blues
And shrieking luck
Oh yeah

Tonight
Rush shines a gloom (?)
My wilting heart
The shadow on the moon
Fantastic view
Thinking of things to do

Shrieking luck
Thinking of things to do


Non albums tracks

Cro-Aloha

No bye, no aloha
Gone with a rock promoter
(freezeheads) A rock promoter
I know I saw
And now may die
??????...you're something forgotten, something forgotten
O, o the treats
Saw it on the wall
Motherhood means mental freeze
(freezeheads) no aloha
I know I saw
And now may die
??????...you're something forgotten, something forgotten [3x]
I know I saw
Happy trails
You're something forgotten


Lords of the thighs


Down to ???, just to socialize
I'm waiting for my girls
When you caught my eyes

You've got the way to make a man
Honey, you've got to understand
I'm the manchild
Lord of your thighs

Well Lord, my God
What do we got here?
Your fashion across the floor
Make it perfectly clear

You're the bait
And you're the hook
Someone take a look
I'm the manchild
Lord of your thighs

You must have come here to find it
You've got that look in your eyes
Although you really don't like it
I am the lord of your thighs

You must have come here to find it
You've got that look in your eyes
Although you really don't like it
I am the lord of your thighs

900

With tables and chairs
And holy books for all
With knives and forks
And a thousand miles to go

But brother, I love you
900 to go
One down
900
One down
Twenty five to go

Bad dog is barking
Where snow meets the sea
900 to go
One down

900
When it's time
Brother
Bury me
In my clothes

I can't help it

Today I passed you on the street
And my heart fell at your feet
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

Somebody else flows by your side
And she looks so satisfied
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

A picture from the past came slowly stealing
As I brushed your arm and stood so close to you
Suddenly I get that old time feeling
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

It's hard to know when other's lips have kissed you
And held you just the way I used to do
Heaven only knows how much I missed you
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you [2x]

Don't call home

Phone by the cash register
Quarter in your pocket
Miles away but you can't call home
No, you can't call home

Home is where you are [2x]
Miles away, noone knows where
Miles away, don't call home
Anyway, don't call this way

Hey, don't call
You never can call
Don't even write

Noone can help you
You don't know what to do
Don't call home
Noone likes you
Wants your call
<???>
You couldn't care less
You don't know what is happening
You don't know why you're angry
You don't know why you left her
You can't call, you never can call

Hey, don't call, you never can call [4x]
Don't even write

Safari

He didn't cry on a safari
In over his knees
He couldn't leave a finer life
Always hugging the ground
And crying out for me

He didn't cry on a safari
In over his knees
He couldn't leave the flock, he couldn't leave
always hugging the man
and crying out for me

So sad about us

So sad about us [2x]

Sad, that the music's stopped now
Sad, that we can't go back now
Sad, about us

So bad about us [2x]

Bad, never meant to break up
Bad, suppose we'll never make up
Bad, about us

Apologies mean nothing
When the damage is done
But you can't switch off my love and
You can't switch off the sun

So sad about us [2x]

Sad, never meant to break up
Sad, suppose we'll never make up
Sad, about us

Grunggae

Grunggae!

I know you little libertine
I know you're a real coocoo

I'll be your whatever you want
The bong in this reggae song

I know you little libertine
I know you're a real coocoo

New year ( demo )

It's true, true, true...
I know what I want [2x]

I am the sun
I am the new year
I'm the way home [2x]

I know what I want [2x]

I am the sun
I am the new year
I'm the way home [2x]

We have come for light
Wholly, we have come for light
It's true, true, true...

I know what I want [2x]
I am the sun
I am the new year
I am the way home

Head to toe

Like a road, you're somewhere to GO
Head to toe, twentythree
What/Rock with me

Your face looks good to me [3x]

I
You're somewhere to go
There's someone's home
Someone's home

Your face looks good to me
You're allright boy/ You look right boy

Head to toe, you're somewhere to go
Twentythree
What/Rock with me

Your face looks good to me [3x]
You're allright boy/ You look right boy

Your face looks good to me [3x]
You look right boy
Comfortably
Comfortably

Shocker in gloomtown

Were you there?
Were you kicking?
Alive in aisle 12
Gimmick of the century
In boxes of jars
And give away cars
He's motioning for you

There was a band
They were sickening
Arousing everyone
P.S. dump your boyfriend
Emotional trash
Emotional trash
With helium balloons

So then tell me
How the hell did we miss it
Bared his ass for all to see
And no one got to kiss it

Freed pig

You were right
I was battling with you
Trying to prove myself
I tried to bury you with guilt
I wanted to give you all
I've got nothing better to do
Then pay too much atttention to you
It's sad but it's not your fault

Self-righteous, rude
I guess I lost that cool
Tapping till I drive you insane
Self-righteous, never right
So laid back, so uptight
To tolerate me
And the negative spirit I bring

Why, I was obsessed to bring you down
Watching your every move
Playing a little boy game
Always had something to prove
Waiting to cut you down
Making it hard to move
With only one thing to do
Tell me first to make it easy

Now you will be free
Now nothing depends on me
Tapping till I drive you insane

Now you will be free
No sick people tugging on your sleeve
I figure it has that warm room to grow
A glory I would never go
A glory I would never go

Freed pig

Hoverin'

Hoverin'
Hoverin' above the universe
We were floating
We didn't know where we were
Flyin' down the street but our feet not touchin'
Oh we saw it all
But we don't remember nothin'
Hoverin'
That's with everybody dazed
Hoverin'
We do it everyday
Don't do it
If you plan to stick around
Straight
Yeah, we're straight, we get high on our music
Mental, made to smoke 'til we're too sick
Hoverin'
We don't need a starship
Cuz we're hoverin'
An eternal eclipse
We were floatin'
We didn't know where we were
Flyin' down the street but our feet not touchin'
but we don't remember nothin'
Hoverin'
That's with everybody dazed
Hoverin'
We're fewer everyday
And they don't do drugs
Cuz they plan to stick around

All Apologies

What else should I be?
All Apologies
What else should I say?
Everyone is gay
What else could I write?
I don't have the right
What else should I be?
All apologies
In the sun
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun
In the sun
I'm married
Buried
I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything's my fault
I'll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezerburn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy
All in all is all we are

*** Great thanx to Rafet For this one ***
