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

After Juliana Hatfield disbanded the jangle pop trio the Blake Babies in 1990, she launched a solo career, performing similarly melodic indie guitar pop. Singing in an endearingly thin voice, Hatfield married her ringing hooks to sweet, lovelorn pop and startlingly honest confessional songs. Her 1992 solo debut, Hey Babe, became a college radio hit, and its follow-up, 1994's Become What You Are, was primed to become a crossover success in the wake of the commercialization of alternative rock. Although Hatfield had a handful of modern rock hits, including "Spin the Bottle," she never managed to gain the mainstream audience of peers like the Lemonheads did, and by the late '90s, she had settled into a cult following. Hatfield was raised in an upper-middle-class home in Massachusetts; her father was a doctor and her mother was a fashion editor for The Boston Globe. As a child, she learned how to play piano, and during high school, she played guitar in a covers group called the Squids before discovering alternative rock through the Velvet Underground. Following high school, she attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she studied voice. While at Berklee, she met guitarist John Strohm and drummer Freda Boner, with whom she formed the Blake Babies in 1986. Over the next six years, the Blake Babies and their charming jangle pop became college radio favorites. Hatfield left the band in 1990, and Strohm and Boner formed Antenna. Immediately following her departure from the Blake Babies, Hatfield contributed several lyrics to Susanna Hoffs' debut album.

The following year, she played bass on the Lemonheads' It's a Shame About Ray, which turned out to be the band's commercial breakthrough. The success of It's a Shame About Ray in 1992 stirred interest in Hatfield's solo debut, Hey Babe. Released on Mammoth Records, the album was very similar to the Blake Babies, yet the songs were more personal and confessional. Hey Babe was critically praised and became a college radio and MTV hit, leading to a major-label contract for Hatfield with Atlantic. In 1992, Hatfield formed the Juliana Hatfield Three with bassist Dean Fisher and drummer Todd Phillips, and the group recorded its debut for Atlantic with R.E.M.'s producer, Scott Litt. As she worked on the record, Hatfield became a minor media sensation; her songs were accepted as friendly, more accessible distillations of the feminist alternative rock movement known as riot grrrl. Hatfield appeared in fashion layouts in Vogue and Sassy, and she became the subject of gossipy tidbits about her speculated romance with Lemonhead Evan Dando and her assertion that she was still a virgin at the age of 25. In light of such exposure, many observers expected her 1993 album Become What You Are to be her mainstream breakthrough. A heavier record than its predecessor, Become What You Are was a moderate hit, as "My Sister" and "Spin the Bottle" earned heavy airplay on MTV and modern rock radio. Nevertheless, the album failed to make her a star. Only Everything followed in the spring of 1995 as alternative rock was beginning to decline in popularity. The album was received with mixed reviews, and only "Universal Heartbeat" managed to make much headway on radio or MTV, causing the album to slip down the charts quickly. Hatfield returned in 1997 with the EP Please Do Not Disturb, followed a year later by the full-length Bed. Spring 2000 was a busy time for Hatfield; she released the quiet, reflective solo album Beautiful Creature and Total System Failure, a collection of louder, poppier material, on the same day. Total System Failure featured Hatfield, former Weezer bassist Mike Welsh, and drummer Zephan Courtney as a new band, Juliana's Pony, which was a trio along the lines of the Juliana Hatfield Three.

Hey Babe

Everybody loves me but you

Well I wake up every morning and the first thing that I say
Is that I hope that I can make it through another lonely day
I'm afraid I might explode if I keep going on this way

 People always notice me wherever I go
They think I'm lucky but they don't really know
Beauty and brains are all that I've got
I've got a cold cold bed and a broken heart, a broken heart

Everybody loves me, everyone but you
But nobody undoes me like the thought of you can do
They search my eyes but I don't know why
'Cos all I ever do is cry
Everybody loves me but you

 Girls wanna be me so they can pick and choose
They figure out of ten men there's no way that they can lose
Men would walk the plank for me and set themselves on fire
What do they see in me that isn't sad and tired, tired

I could fill my life with people who wanna be with me
Do like when they say there's other fish in the sea
There's a world out there and a million things to do
But what do I care if it doesn't include you, you

 Everybody loves me, everyone but you
But nobody undoes me like the thought of you can do
They search my eyes but I don't know why
'Cos all they ever do is cry
Everybody loves me

A cold cold bed and a broken heart
A cold cold bed and a broken heart
An empty house and a broken car
A cold cold bed and a broken heart

Lost and saved

 I know exactly where we stand
You're on your feet and I'm in quicksand
I can't help myself, I need a hand
 Just when I think I'm dead
He turns up just in time for bed
I thank my lucky stars again

I sold my soul for rock and roll
I never ever get a kiss
But now I bought it back and gave it away
For another night like this

I found a way to use my head
I go over and over every word you said
Look how I can make something out of nothing

Say a prayer for the dying and the lost, ooh
When he said he loved me he was
Lying but he had his fingers crossed

It's ok he's not to blame
Let him have his toys
I know how to play that game
And I know that he's a beautiful boy
I'll take him any day
But I won't wait around and I won't pray
Cos in my heart of hearts I have been saved

Say a prayer for the dying and the lost, ooh
When he said he loved me he was
Lying but he had his fingers crossed

I see you

What's that over there moving on the wall
A second glance and it's not there at all
 What's that sitting there on the page of my book
It hides behind the words when I try to take a closer look

I can't reach out and grab it but that's ok with me
 What's that jumping up and down in the middle of the street
It lingers then it melts into the wavy liquid heat
What are all those dizzy circles in the corner of my eye
They laugh and float away as I look into the sky
Can't get my arms around it but that doesn't bother me
'Cos all I have to do is dream

I see you every place I go
I see you in people I don't even know
 I close my eyes and I see you
I open 'em wide and I see you
I see you

Who am I to close my mind from what it wants to see
And who are you to tell the truth and kill my fantasy
Why are all those people always saying things about me
I'm not a loser, I'm just lonely
 Yeah I wanna lay down next to you
But I'm not one to complain
Yeah I wanna touch you too

Do me a favor and appease my aching eyes
Won't you please materialize
Play another of your tricks with my sight
Be here in the flesh tonight

What's that pretty little thing crawling up my wrist
Call me crazy, call me a masochist
But I'd rather have you in my mind than completely out of sight
So I'll just go on dreaming for the rest of my life

 I see you every night and day
I see you in a million different ways
I close my eyes and I see you
I open 'em wide and I see you
Yeah, I see you

The lights

 I follow the path of a falling star
It takes me closer to where you are, are
What can I do, I try to be with you
But I can only go so far

You're light years ahead of me
So bright that I can't help but see
And you, I know how good it could be

I try to look outside myself
I try to find some outside help
I'll try to sleep 'till you come up tonight

And I'll lie down right under the lights
For a little while I can feel all right
A better life is in plain sight
I'll be fine until the time comes to put out all of the lights

 Half a moon is moon enough
To get me all the way across the bay
A roman candle shoots off from the beach
And lightning strikes a place way out of my reach

I'd say I have the perfect view
If only it was always true
But in dark is it most of the time

 When I get right down in front of the lights
Sometimes I really start to feel all right
A better life is in plain sight
I'll be fine until the sun comes up and dims the light of the night

 Come up right down next to me
I don't have to say anything
It's better than any made up fantasy

Looking out and looking up
I can see with my eyes shut
This might just be the best time of my life

 And when I get right down in front of the lights
Sometimes I really start to feel all right
A better life is in plain sight
I'll be fine until the time comes to put out all of the lights

Nirvana

 I shut the windows and close the store
I lay down on the bathroom floor
Everyone I know is a bore

I'm starting to think that everything stinks
That I could really use a drink
Then I got up and hit my head on the sink
 Father father father father
Do you call
Father father father
Should I end it all

Now, here comes the song I love so much
Makes me wanna go fuck shit up
Now, I got nirvana in my head
I'm so glad I'm not dead

 I slam my hand in the car door
I scream 'till I could scream no more
Bloody and mean and rotten to the core
 Father father father father
Do you call
Satan Satan Satan
Should I end it all

 You try to get off the ground
But you always end up coming down
When the sound comes around and goes in your ears
You can do anything you have no fears
When that sound comes around and goes in my ears
I can do anything I have no fears

 Now, here comes the song I love so much
Makes me wanna go fuck shit up
I got nirvana in my head
I'm so glad I'm not dead

 Here comes the song, I love it so much
Makes me wanna go fuck shit up
Now, I got nirvana in my head
I'm so glad I'm not dead

Forever baby

 He falls down drunk, I hold him up
He drinks and I refill his cup
Then I take him home and put him to bed
 He wakes me in the dead of night
Lets me be his second sight
To guide him when he's sleep-walking
Listen when he's sweet-talking
 I see the end of the road in his eyes
He's got a long way to go

 I hold him like a loaded gun
I know he might go off with anyone
But I know he's only tryin' to have some fun
 He sees a couple of things in me
Like how I'm not very hard to please
It's really pretty easy
I see my long lost home in his eyes
He sees a nice hotel in mine

 I'll stick it out forever babe
If we keep coming back together maybe
You'll start to see it like me

 I'll stick it out forever babe
If we keep coming back together maybe
You'll start to see it like me

 I'll stick it out forever baby X12

 Ugly

 I don't look at faces, I look at my feet
I'm all alone when I walk down the street
I'm in the kitchen 'cos I can't take the heat
I wanna leave but I stay in my seat

'Cos I'm ugly with a capital U
And I don't need a mirror to see that it's true

 Ask me a question then I will mess up, ooh
I'll tell a lie and I'll never fess up
I'm pretty lost but I don't wanna be found
No no no no no
My tiny screams don't make a sound, no

'Cos I'm ugly with a capital U
And I don't need a mirror to see that it's true
'Cos I'm ugly with a capital U
And I need nobody to tell me the truth

No outlet

 Do, do do do, do do do
I left when you were still asleep
Glad we had the chance to meet
I walked by your room and whispered your name
I knew I wouldn't be back again
 It's seed that's gotta go unsown
It's a missed connection, a cancelled show

 Do do do, do do do
There's a light shining out through your eyes at me
But getting in is just like trying to crawl up a tree
I try to get past all that stuff
But a little while is never enough
 Like a power line it's hanging low
Seems like there's no outlet on this deadend road

Do do do, do do do
Hey, babe, there's something I can keep
Break off a chunk of you and give me a piece
I put it in my pocket to save it for the days
When thoughts of you come back to me and won't go away
'Cos I cannot make my dreams come true no matter how I try
And I cannot be satisfied just knowing you're alive

Dealt a good hand and forced to fold
Pushed by circumstances beyond our control

 Quit

 I made it to the top of the wall
This could be mine, I could own it all
I better jump before I fall
I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead
Before I say anything
That I wish, that I wish I hadn't said

 This is it, my car has arrived
To take us to the greener grass on the other side
But look at all the people who died
Crashed when they went out for a ride
So I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead
Before I say anything
That I wish, that I wish I hadn't said

Get off your knees

You taste little bits that wouldn't digest
And you shit 'em out of your system
You grab hands, squeeze, then let it go
Drop it and watch it fall away like snow

Yearning for a drug that doesn't exist
Using your mouth like a fist
That smile can't even show on your face
You gotta get out of this place

Like the noose snared to your leg don't fit
Though even if you found the key you can't

Get off your knees and repeat after me
The devil rocks my soul
Accept the fact that he didn't die
And you'll begin to go

There's a lump in my throat that won't go away
I'm gonna rip it out
I'm gonna kill desire and knock it down
You'll be under my foot down on the ground

You're trying to get the picture
When there's nothing really to get
You're running around in the desert trying to get wet

You're wanting to hold on tight
When there's nothing really to hold
Stop that train of thought that drives you into the cold

Get off your knees and repeat after me
The devil rocks my soul
Accept the fact that he didn't die
And you'll begin to go

Get off your knees and repeat after me
The devil rocks my soul
Accept the fact that he didn't die
And you'll begin to go

No answer

You're the only one thing that I believe
The only one thing that I can see
I'm not blind so tell me why
Why don't you come up and see me some time

It's the only thing that stays with me
The one thing that won't run away from me

The answer doesn't lie (do do do do do do)
At least not in the back of my mind (do do do do do do)
Can't find it in your eye (do do do do do do)
Can't find it in time

I'm sure of myself and I know the truth
Now all I have to do is show it to you
It looks so easy but it's hard to do
You

I jump in the car, turn the music on
I'm gonna be gone, but I don't know how long
I've got time, so tell me why
Will it take a whole life
To prove what you know is right
Why, why, why
Why, why

The answer doesn't lie (do do do do do do)
At least not in the back of my mind (do do do do do do)
Can't find it in your eye (do do do do)
Can't find it in time

Do do do do do do do X4
Do do do do do do dooo X4
Do do do do do do dooooooo X4
Oooh

Become What You Are

Supermodel

The highest paid piece of ass.
You know it's not gonna last.
Those magazines end up in the trash., yeah

 What's the big idea, none of that stuff is even real.
Wanna know how they really feel, yeah

 Five thousand dollars a day,
Is what they pay my baby
For her pretty face.
 Five thousand dollars a day,
Is what they pay my baby
For her pretty face.

 I came over as soon as she called.
'Cause she's a living doll.
And she's famous for nothing at all., yeah
 She's living life like a dream,
With a false sense of self-esteem.
I wish she'd trade places with me,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

 Five thousand dollars a day,
Is what they pay my baby
For her pretty face.
 Five thousand dollars a day,
Is what my baby gets paid
For being just another pretty face.

My sister


My sister... My sister... My sister.

 I hate my sister, she's such a bitch.
She acts as if she doesn't even know that I exist.
But I would do anything to let her know I care.
But I am only talking to myself 'cos she isn't there.

My sister, I love my sister, she's the best.
She's cooler than any other girl that I have ever met.
She had the greatest band, she had the greatest guy.
She's good at everything and doesn't even try.

 She's got a wall around her nobody can climb.
She lets her ladder down for those who really shine.
I tried to scale it, but to me she's blind.
So I lit a firecracker, went off in my eye.

 I miss my sister, why'd she go ?
She's the one who would have taken me
To my first all-ages show.
It was the Violent Femmes and the Del Fuegos,
Before they had a record out. Before they went gold,
And started to grow.

 I miss my sister. I miss my sister.
I miss my sister. I really miss her.

This is the sound

Up above the floor so high.
A reflection in his eye.
Fell in love again last night.
Had a chance but I got stage-fright.
 Oooh, oooh. oooh, oooh

 I can't dance in front of you.
I never used these dancing shoes.
They won't even go up stairs.
Take me up to meet you there.
 Oooh, oooh. oooh, oooh

This... is the sound ... of a tree... falling down.
Like me... giving up ...to the ground... is the sound
Of a wave... breaking down...to be... all washed up.

 I can't think of things to say.
Would if I could find a way.
Grab something and hold it tight.
Even if it's just one night.
 Oooh, oooh. Oooh, oooh!

 Why are simple things so hard?
Nothing ever goes too far.
I roll it over in my mind
For the hundred-thousandth time.
 Oooh, oooh. Oooh, oooh

This... is the sound .... of a tree... falling down.
Like me... giving up....to the ground... is the sound
Of a wave... crashing down .... to be... all washed up
 Bridge !

Up above the town so high,
Watching gasses in the sky.
I can't stop thinking of that guy.
How do you can't see smog at night.
 Oooh, oooh. oooh, oooh

I don't even know his name.
But if it's ever gonna rain,
Will it ever be the same?
Will he come back here again?

 This... is the sound .... of a tree... falling down.
Like me... giving up....to the ground... is the sound
Of a wave... breaking down ... to be... all washed up.

For the birds

 I really had to go downtown.
Go downtown and hang around.
Was not prepared for what I found.
A baby bird was lyin' on the ground.

 Lying there in front of my feet.
Dying there right next to the street.
I picked it up and felt it's heat.
I tried to wake her up but she wanted to sleep.

 I'm trying, and I'm trying, and I'm trying
But I can't get away from the thought.
It's dying, it's dying, it's dying,
And it's something that I couldn't stop.
You're lying, you're lying, if you say
It's gonna make it 'cos I know that it's not.

 Hanging on a telephone line.
Witnessing a million crimes.
I've been alone all this time.
I'd call someone but I don't have a dime.

 I don't care for boys or girls.
I'd rather hang around with the birds.
Humans only wreck the world.
They'd kill your whole family for a string of pearls.

 I'm trying, and I'm trying, and I'm trying
But I can't get away from the thought.
We're dying, we're dying, we're dying.
Our insides are starting to rot.
You're lying, you're lying, if you say
We're okay, 'cos maybe we're not.

 Ooh, ooh, ooh... ooh ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh... ooh ooh.
Ooh, ooh, ooh... ooh ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh... ooh ooh.
Oooh... ooh ooh... ooh

 If I had wings I'd try to fly.
But they don't make it harder to die.
You can take it up to the sky.
But no one ever stays that high.
High... high

 I'm trying, and I'm trying, and I'm trying
But I can't get away from the thought.
I'm dying, I'm dying.
I already gave away all that I've got.
I'm lying, I'm lying, if I say
That I'm cool 'cos really I'm not
.

Mabel

Who are you?
I can't remember your name.
Where am I?
What was I gonna say?
What's the time?
What day is it today?
I feel fine, I'll probably be okay.
Hey... hey... hey ...

 Hi, banana. Hi, spaghetti, hi.
Mommy's back, he's gonna tuck you in tonight.
Mommy's sorry, she gave you such a fright.
Mommy's home, he's gonna be all right.

 Check out that lady X3
She's talking to herself.
 Check out that lady X3
She's gonna go to hell.

 Realize she's in a different place.
Realize her lack of social grace.
She can take the smile off his face.
He wants to take her somewhere she'll be safe.
Hey... hey... hey... hey...

 Set the table dancin' on the table.
Clear her place because she is unable, Mabel.
He looks at her and he wonders where she is.
She smiles a little and she tells him she is his.

 Check out that lady X3
They're taking her away
 Check out that lady X3
The devil made her pay.

A dame with a rod

Give me your hand,
Get in the van,
Do you understand?,
He's got a plan.
 He's got a room for one night,
So don't try to fight.
He's got a knife,
No respect for your life.

 Is it for real?,
How does it feel?
We made a deal.,
Even paid for your meal.
 She's got a pain in her head.,
Her eyes are red.
Touch her again and you're dead.
You heard what she said.

 I am a heroine,
He tried to do her in.
I gave it back to him.,
He won't do it again.
 I'm a heroine.,
He tried to do her in.
I gave it back to him.,
He won't do it again.

 Give me your hand,
Get in the van,
Do you understand?,
Act like a man.
 He got a room for one night,
So don't try to fight.
He's got a knife,
No respect for your life.

 Is it for real ?,
How does it feel?
We made a deal.,
Even paid for your meal.
 She's got a pain in her head.
The bed is red.
Touch her again and you're dead.
You heard what I said.

 I'm a heroine.,
He tried to do her in.
I gave it back to him.,
He won't do it again.
 I'm a heroine.,

He won't do it again.

 Don't try to run.,
You did what you done.
I've got a gun,
And no mercy for scum.

Not come back around.
You pushed yourself down,
And outta my town.

 I'm a heroine.
He tried to do her in.
I gave it back to him.
He won't do it again.
 I'm a heroine.
He tried to do her in
I gave it back to him.
He won't do it again.

Addicted

I think I'm addicted (addicted).
Gotta have it every day.
I think I'm addicted (addicted).
Diggin' up what I threw away.

 My body is a shell.
A broke an empty shell.
A chemical well.
A little private hell.

 I can't take this lying down.
I can't handle this waitin' around.
Karl Wallenda said it right.
Walkin' a wire is the only life.

 I think I'm addicted (addicted).
I got an insatiable need.
I think I'm addicted (addicted).
Finally it happened to me.

 The skeleton trees
Remind me of me.
They've got no leaves
To make the air we breathe.

 I can't take this lying down.
I can't handle this waitin' around.
Hack another year off my life.
Take my money, take my knife.

 I don't wanna die.
I don't wanna die.
Don't watch me cry.
I don't wanna die.

 I can't take this lying down.
I can't handle this waitin' around.
Hack another year off my life.
Take my money, take my knife.

Feelin' Massachussetts

 Tell me something I really wanna know.
Take me somewhere I really wanna go.
Introduce me to someone really cool.
Not another crazy fool (crazy fool).

 Feed me something hot enough.
Don't be afraid to treat me rough.
I just wanna be entertained.
I wanna feel alive again (alive again).

 I walk around
This little town.
I spit on the ground
And wait for the sky to fall down.
Show me the way to the door.
Show me out 'cause I'm
So, so, so, so

 Give me something to take away the pain.
Give me something that lets me sleep all day.
Play me some music that lifts me to my feet.
Not another ripped-off beat (ripped-off beat).

 Take me to the ocean and leave me there.
Leave me all alone with the sun and the air.
I'll float around all day long.
It won't be long before I'm gone (I'm gone).

 I float around.
I'm sinkin', sinkin', sinkin' down.
Feel like I'm gonna drown
In this stinkin' town.
Show me the way to the shore.
Throw me out 'cos I'm
So, so, so, so bored.

 I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose burning mouth is pressed
Against the earth's sweet flowin' breast.

 I walk around
This little town.
I spit on the ground
And wait for the sky to fall down.
Show me the way to the door.
Show me out 'cause I'm
So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so bored.

Spin the bottle

He's a movie star, only drives rented cars.
Met him in a bar, said "I know who you are."
Took him to my party as the games were starting.
Bottle's on the ground, are you ready now?
When it comes to me, I'm gonna be ready.
It's my turn in a minute, gonna put my message in it.
 Five minutes in the closet with you.

 He's in a bunch of movies, really stupid movies.
It's not entirely his fault, he can't control it all.
I am not afraid, I can hardly wait.
Truth or dare, I don't care, tell the truth I dare you.

 When it comes around, when it comes around,
When it comes around, when it comes around.
 Do you feel it too, what I feel for you?
If it was just us, would you do what I do?
 Doo-doo-doo-doo. Doo-doo-doo-doo.
Doo-doo-doo-doo. Doo-doo-doo-doo.

 Everybody's watching. Everybody's looking.
She's such a sucker. He don't want to fuck her.
He is gonnna kiss me, if he doesn't miss me.
I am ready for it now. Already on the ground.
 Five minutes in the closet with you.
Oooh! Five minutes in the closet with you.

 Spin it 'round again X8

President Garfield

Every time that truck goes by, I think of you.
You drove right through the wall,
And now the kids all wanna follow you.

 I don't smoke, so why am I smokin'?
Took a hit and now I'm chokin'.

 He wrote a book about himself.
I keep it on my shelf.
And when I was in Washington,
I walked down all the streets of which he wrote.

 I can't sing, I'm not a singer.
I swear I'm gonna kill myself if you bring her.
Her... her... her...her...her....her

 Iron will, iron hand.
Neck like a tire, iron man.
Iron fist, pump that jam.
Iron eye, iron gland.
Iron face, iron plan.
Fill that empty coffee can.
Iron bar, metal band.
Pumping iron man...

 I am only human, I am weak.
I want his power inside of me.
And I'm not talking about a piece of meat.
I'm saying something really deep.
 I'm saying something really deep. I'm saying something really deep.
I'm saying something really deep. I'm saying something really.
I'm saying something really deep. I'm saying something really deep.
I'm saying something really deep. I'm saying something really deep...Yeah yeah

Little pieces

You left the state without me.
Shows how much you care about me.
I could call, but you could hang up.
You could take my loving cup.

 But I don't wanna share.
I don't wanna care.
I don't wanna bare it all.

You've got a life without me.
Don't know a thing about me.
 It's no wonder I can't get through.
On the phone he said "I love you."

 I don't wanna talk it over.
Never cried on anyone's shoulder.
More and more
As I get older.

 Take a look and see
How alone and free
Anyone can be.
Just never let 'em see you sweat.
Little pieces, all they get.
So why do you still feel like shit?

 Feels like a heartbreak.
But it's nothing near that great.
I never came that close.
Not even an only ghost.

 And on and on it goes.
Nobody knows.
My heart's on fire,
But my blood is frozen.

 Take a look and see
How alone and free
Anyone can be.
Just never let 'em see you sweat.
Little pieces, all they get.
So why do you still feel like this?

 It's a mystery
How I seem to be
Something less than myself.

 It's a mystery
How I seem to be
Something less than myself.

 It's a mystery
How I seem to be
Something less than myself.

 I got no idols

Love me love, but just don't touch.
I don't like to be touched.
You might think we all need that stuff.
But I don't think about it much.
And when I do, I have to leave the room.
I'm scared of what I might do.

 I got no idols. I got no idols. I got no idols. I got no idols.
I got no idols. I got no idols. I got no idols. I got no idols

I'm a goddess in your eyes, and I will never die.
I was born of people's needs, and what they don't wanna believe.
But I am a liar, that's the truth, go home and think it through.
That's the harm in mystery, all you know is what you see.

 I got no idols. I got no idols. I got no idols. I got no idols. X4 

Only Everything

What a life


Wasted ruined tragic 'cause it doesn't have to be like this
Pasty dirty sweaty faithless, greasy dirty smelly wretched
 Make it be a whore a tabloid cliche,
Nasty spoiled deceptive wrecked
Mousey grungy deceptive wrecked

What a life, you wear it like propriety.
What a life, you do it like you really mean it.
What a life, I watch it like a scary movie.
What a life, what a life, what a life.
 
STD's sick sex drug-addled debauchery monger
Messy stringy pathetic hopeless, dregdy stringy pathetic hopeless

What a life, you wear it like propriety.
What a life, you do it like you really mean it.
What a life, I watch it like a scary movie.
What a life, what a life, what a life.

 Wear it like a badge, wear it like a crown, wear it like a trophy.
Wear it like a badge, wear it like a crown, wear it like a trophy.
Wear it like a badge, wear it like a crown, open like a cut.
Pick it like a scab, feed it like a dog.

What a life, you wear it like propriety.
What a life, you do it like you really mean it.
What a life, I watch it like a scary movie.
What a life, what a life, what a life.

 Wasted ruined tragic 'cause it doesn't have to be like this
Greasy dirty sweaty smelly
Faithless grungy pathetic wretched

What a life, you wear it like propriety.
What a life, you do it like you really mean it.
What a life, I watch it like a scary movie.
What a life, what a life, what a life.

Fleur de lys

" Hey Can I get some bass ? "

J'ai pris deux jus d'oranges,
J'avais soif,
Aidez-moi, j'ai besoin d'un homme.

Ou habitez-vous ? Chez qui ?
Peut-Ítre ŗ la fin du siŤcle vous m'aimerez,
Je veux jouer ( in live she sings "je peux jouer )
Jouer, jouer, jouer, jouer,
Jouer, jouer, jouer.

J'ai pris trois pains au chocolat,
Je n'avais pas faim,
Combien pour votre corps?
Allons, poussez,
Poussez, poussez, poussez, poussez,
Poussez, poussez, poussez yeah!
 
Universal heart-beat

Beauty can be sad. You're proof of that.
When the damage is done, you're damaged goods.
That's not to say it's not okay.
I wouldn't have it any other way.

A heart, a heart that hurts, is a heart, a heart that works.
A heart, a heart that hurts, is a heart, a heart that works.

 Sweet. sweet pain comes with the sun.
Lie down and soak it up, Burn off layers of insulators.
Exposed nose to the cold, I'm bleeding pretty colors,
yeah, all over myself.

A heart, a heart that hurts, is a heart, a heart that works.
A heart, a heart that hurts, is a heart, a heart that works.

 Black wave comes to take me away.
I ride it almost to the grave.
Landing on a crowded shore, high-fiving.
What a trip I'm better for it.
I feel a live sensation.

A heart, a heart that hurts, is a heart, a heart that works X6

Dumb fun

Power score, kick the dirt,
Sick of being good.
Twice removed, love can kill,
Crack up in the sun.
On again, off again,
I am on my side.
Idiot philosophy,
That is really, that is really

Dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb dumb dumb dumb

 This record's over finally.
Much too good for me.
Guitar murder, be a hero.
Jump in front of a gun
Get the ice, bad appetite.
Love to have the blues.
Your true love is fuckin' around
And oh we did have oh we had such

Fun fun fun fun
Fun fun fun fun.

Dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb dumb dumb dumb
Dumb, dumb.

How do I get a foot in your door ?
How do you turn this on ?
Had a heart by accident.
Did you have it all along ?
Slave to the single chief executive
Officer of the song.
Hate your job, love your stuff.
If you think that's living you are

Wrong wrong wrong wrong
Wrong wrong wrong wrong.

Live on tomorrow

Put me in the shower, pull me out of bed.
Am I only dreaming, or did I wake up dead?
 Throw me in the garbage, shackled up in chains.
But I still got my boots on
So I can walk away.

 A heartbeat says you haven't died.
You gotta try to stay alive.
 Leave me to the vultures.
Throw me to the wolves.
I'll live on tomorrow
And purity of soul.

 Dump me in the ocean,
Tied to a piano.
But you forgot to rip my heart out
Before you let me go.

A heartbeat says you haven't died.
You gotta try to stay alive.

 Lock me in the basement,
Without anything to eat.
You can hurt my body,
But you can't hurt me.

Dying proof

You need more heat,
This is a recurring theme.
You die in flames in my dreams.

"I need to get more sleep",
This is what you always say.
Lying in a junkie's way.

Finding you turning blue,
It's easy to discern the truth.
I can see what not to do.
One look at you the dying proof.

 Pick up your cigarette
Forget what I said
It's so hard to care what you do.

You say "look at me
Respectfully." I can't.

 Finding you turning blue,
It's easy to discern the truth.
I can see what not to do.
One look at you the dying proof.

 If life is a performance
And I am not an actor
Am I supposed to lie down and die?

Bottles and flowers

Reach inside carefully.
Feel my psyche.
Make it last.
Put this moment under glass.

Nobody really can do that.
What a low fantasy.
She don't know how to live.

 So alone.
Somebody take me home.
Alone too long it drags on.
It's so wrong. So alone. So alone.

 Catatonic insomniac lying in the grass.
What is she thinking of, overlooked by everybody?
A long embrace, though you won't see it on her face.

She's so alone.
Somebody take me home.
Alone too long it drags on.
It's so wrong, so alone, so alone.

 Feels like an end, so much unsaid.
Feels like an end, so much unsaid.

 So alone, somebody take me home.
Alone too long it drags on.
It's so wrong, so alone, so alone.
So alone, so alone, so alone.
 
Outsider

 Underneath the sky, driving through the snow,
Something in my mind, pulls me off the road.
 Got to get it down, and out out before it goes.
Got to tell myself, what I need to know.

 I see you from the thirteenth floor.
This hotel has a thirteenth floor.
I'm thinking out the window
"Come up and watch a video."

 Did you ever see the birth
Or first steps of a tune?
Beautiful to me
And alien to you.

It has got a face, only I could love.
And I know my place, outside the hub.

 He's someone that you kinda know.
He's someone that you'd like to know.
You kiss him on the cheek and go.
You gotta go and be alone.

 I see you from the thirteenth floor.
This hotel has a thirteenth floor.
I'm dreaming out the window
"Come up and watch a video."

Ok ok

Why you asking?,
That's the last thing.
Untrusted, not busted.
What what what what what what what what

 What a cheap shot., I did not.
Just believe it., Just leave it.
Shut up, shut up, shut up,
Shut up, shut up

Ok ok, whatever you say.
Ok ok, I did it but I didn't.
Ok ok, don't make me get crazy.
Ok ok ok ok, ok, ok

 Forget it, regret it.
Imagining not the real thing.
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you X5

 Ok ok, whatever you say.
Ok ok, I did it but I didn't.
Ok ok, don't make me get crazy.
Ok ok ok ok, ok, ok
Ok ok ok ok, ok.

Congratulations

 I have a sweet creamy warm little jelly roll.
I have a mind to just let my whole body go.
Thought I was hungry but now I don't really know.
If you don't want it you simply just say no.

 I ain't an animal, lovable, huggable.
You look so human but hey one can never tell.
I got no secrets and I think that you should know
Life ain't a party, it's not like a video.

 "I am" he said to me "equally wary."

 I don't know what I like only know what I don't.
I don't like what I know only love what I don't.
I know the fire but none of the afterglow.
Killing the irony that's ruining rock+roll.

 "I am" he said to me "equally wary."

 Thinking of you as I lick the crumbs off the floor.
Congratulations are due as you shut the door.
Never began and so nor will it ever end.
Only desire, desire not anything more.

 I am He. He is me.
I am He. He is me.
 Doo doo doo...

Hang down from heaven

 Love is everywhere I'm not allowed.
I feel he's been to hell, but he's near to heaven now.
I need to see it. I can't not have it, so inscrutable, so beautiful.

I try. I try. I try.

His head is I don't know. I'm stuck outside again.
Can't get in. I can't move him.
I think I like it because it hurts to not know, Pain is so.

I tried. I tried. I tried.

My darling

You're hurting me my darling, my darling, my darling.
It's killing me my darling, my darling, my darling.
Tell me what can I do, help me help you.

You never give me anything, anything, anything.
But you needed everything., much, much more than I could bring.
I heard the things that you said.
Things really are messing with my head.

 Sweet on the outside, but bitter on the inside.
I'm giving up now, but I swear to God I really tried.
I was happy as a child.

Simplicity is beautiful

Blues soul rock country
Red green blue yellow
Morning laughing talking walking
Bread rice water fruit

It's a simple feeling
Hold feel save me
Baby brother sister parent

You blues

Hit the bottom and bounce back up.
The lowest low is only a beginning.
These are the words many people said to me.
But in a crowd you lose humanity.
Scared of the future that comes from the past.
When I think back I see that this could never last.

All I say is all I give back to you.
All I think is all I go back to do.
All I do is all I can't get to you.

 What is he? He's the inspiration.
What am I? I'm a satellite.
I revolve around a bigger body.
And when I fall, I just disappear.
Scared of the future. Aware of the past.
When I think back I see that this could never last.

All I say is all I give back to you.
All I think is all I go back to do.
All I do is all I can't get to you.

 Sixteen months and seventeen days
was enought to alienate.
After all, love is unbecoming.
I turn it off and while away.
Scared of the future that's made of the past.
When I think back I see that this might never pass

All I say is all I give back to you.
All I think is all I go back to do.
All I do is all I can't get to you.

Bed

Down On Me

You won't meet me in the middle
Push me off the dividing line
You won't give a little
What good graces?
No explanation for your change of heart
You left the inside out
You get a little or a lot
You're either cold or you're hot
A ceiling of clouds
The tall buildings are walls
I'm walking around and I can't get out
The general fatigue of a private person trying to talk to you
You saw the movie, you don't need to read the book
A masterpiece or a piece of shit.
You're either stealing or you're taken.

You're so down on me
I think it is a fad so I don't feel so bad anymore.
You're so down on me
I think it is a fad so I don't feel so bad anymore.

You buy the pound just to burn it down
And watch the sleeping dogs die
Walk away unscathed
I'm going to take you off my thank-you list
"Will you ever get your shit together?"


Hookers and virgins, sluts and nuns
What if I am neither one?

You're so down on me
I think it is a fad so I don't feel so bad anymore

You're so down on me
I think it is a fad so I don't feel so bad anymore.


You're so down on me
I think it is a fad so I don't feel so bad anymore

You're so down on me
I think it is a fad so I don't feel so bad anymore.

I want to want you

Dust off the instruments
Do you still know how to play?
With the pride of lions you rub me the wrong way
Stick your hand in the cookie jar, pull out bad poetry.

I want to want you

I want to want you

My face has changed
I don't look the same
A human mutation
Alienation factory
Too much information, maybe.


What a bad judge of character you were
I would fake it if I could
It would probably be for my own good
Honesty is a curse
It only makes it worse.

I want to want you

I want to want you

You're such a lucky man

Over and over again
Runs like a dream
No demons in your machine
I can't explain to you what I don't understand.

I want to want you X6


Swan song

You were gonna let me go
No guts to tell me yourself
Go ahead and rub my nose in it
You can't fire me because I quit


You make me feel invisible
Well, surely you see me now
Strecthed out on the floor of your house
Foaming at the mouth

With a needle in my arm
Next to a smoking gun
And an empty razor case
And a note that says :

"Dear Jack I hate you. Love, Diane"

"Dear Jack I hate you. Love, Diane"
"Dear Jack I hate you"
I said yeah yeah yeah waouh.

The neighborhood is gonna watch me
As I create the great finale
A perfect swan dive out the window
Crash the car off the road


You're not gonna miss me
But you're gonna remember my body
Crumpled in a heap in the middle of your street.


Clean up your mess X4


Finally you're carrying me

Over the threshold try to revive me
With a cold compress but it's too late
I guess your best just isn't good enough
When every warm embrace
It was a selfish act
And every smiling face
It was a trap
You shit
You stabbed me in the back

"Dear Jack I hate you. Love, Diane"

"Dear Jack I hate you. Love, Diane"
"Dear Jack I hate you"
I said yeah yeah yeah waouh.

Clean up my mess X4

Sneaking Around

Baby, you come whisper at my door
What do I open it for?
I'm always happy to see your face
Even though you are discrace.

I'm sick of sneaking around X4

Hide your smile It's broad daylight
And don't start thinking about last night
You can't say these things out loud
But I'm not leaving and I'm not proud.

I'm sick of sneaking around X4

Do me the honor of holding my hand on the plane
Take me on public transit
Express your feelings on the train
We travel together over time zones and weather
Never really touching the ground.


The only evidence I have :
Dirty pictures in my bag.
Am I ever going to see where you live?
Am I ever going to meet your kid?

I'm sick of sneaking around X4

Backseat

The gauge is on "e"
I'm gripping the wheel
the map is so hard to read
I can't see the road
I can only see


From my hand to my mouth
From right here to the ground
But I'm too far gone to go back


Where will it end?
My weary eyes

On the space
Right in front of me.
My mind imagining

Love and empathy
Or just some company saying

Don't let go

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Don't you know I know?
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Oh don't let go.

An angel takes the wheel
I climb into the backseat
And get under the blanket where sleep can bathe me in dreams

With a warm humming engine and spacemen three
Sleeping with Jesus
I just need to rest.


And I cry like a baby

Who fell out of the cradle
A feeling of release
How hard can it be

To speak clearly?

Don't let go

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Don't you know I know?
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Oh don't let go.

Pull over and get out
You're down, clinging to the earth
You want the world to stop
Discover unknown reserves
Get up, brush off the dirt
Get back in


And don't let go.
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Don't you know I know?
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Don't let go
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
...
Oh it's such a long road
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo ...
Oh don't let go.

Live It Up

The Guest of honor cries
Tars of joy and pride
But someone's waiting in the wings to steal your fire
And I don't want to ruin the surprise

That your house on the beach
Will fall into the sea.

Live it up 'cause you're going down

Live it up 'cause you're going down
Live it up 'cause you're going down

This reign can't last
It'll all dry up so fast
The planets are flying past you
You think it's only natural

That the world will stop
And wait for you

And wait for you if you fall off.

Live it up 'cause you're going down

Live it up 'cause you're going down
Live it up 'cause you're going down

We fantasize of your demise
We lie in wait, we salivate
Visualizing your head on a plate.


You're sinking in the mud

They put the pedestal on
Hold on to your jewels
You can hawk them later
A variation on a theme :
You're not missing anything.

Live it up 'cause you're going down

Live it up 'cause you're going down
Live it up 'cause you're going down.

You Are the Camera

Wake up naked
Stretch like a panther
Throw off the covers

Run to the mirror, my lover
Admire this face
It could help to save the world
This body must be seen to be believed
My back and torso like a man ray photo
This is a scene
We are improvising me.

You are the camera
You try to seduce me
You are the camera
You love me
I make love to you

You are the camera.

I practice different smiles
I rehearse different lines
Like the perfect comeback or an eloquent speech
Let's take a walk on the street on the stage
Don't say anything
Just follow me
Don't leave
Save me for posterity
What do I want to be seen buying?
I write in my diary

Only what I want you to read.

You are the camera

A reason for living
You are the camera
I need you to need me

( I need you to justify my life )
You are the camera.

We sit down on the couch
On the left or on the right?
What is my good side?
Come in for a close-up
Fresh breath, perfect makeup
Are we gonna kiss on the mouth like I read about?
I look right at you and see myself and I'm in love.

You are the camera

A reason for living
You are the camera
In the presence of greatness
You are the camera
I disappear what you're not here

You are the camera.

Running Out

Everyone alive is a survivor
And everything's the matter
You're too young to die
In a double suicide

With the wrong guy

What of all the paths you tried to take?
To want too much way your mistake.

You're running out of reasons
You're running out of faith
And promises are nothing
They're broken as they're made.

You're running out of answers
Can't give you any more
You're running out of everything
You're running out the door.


It's not supposed to be like this
Can this be all there is?


You keep pushing your luck

Too stupid to give up
You dream bigger

You fall harder.

You think of things that should have never happened
You think of all the things that never will.

You're running out of reasons
You're running out of faith
And promises are nothing
They're broken as they're made.

You're running out of money
And you don't know how to say
"Can you help me? I'm drifting away."

Bad Day

I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day
I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day.

I screwed it up again.
I made another friend

A desperado
Named "trouble"

He showed his gun to me
He took my money
I think I understand

What makes a boy become
A bad man.

I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day
I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day.

To suffer greatly

From the indignity
Of working for a living
Why would I want to breed?


And the monotony
Driving me crazy
I shouldn't rock the boat
I think my head's about to explode.

I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day.
I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day.


I lost my head.
I made my bed all by myself
Now I don't sleep in it so well.


I'm taking off my dress

But you won't touch me now
This room is such a mess
I really don't know how

To be the perfect girl
But in a perfect world

I'd give you what you need
And you'd be giving me

Another chance.

I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day.

I ask myself why did I run away?
I guess maybe I was having a bad day.


I lost my head.
I made my bed all by myself
Now I don't sleep in it so well.

Let's Blow It All

This can't be real
I've never seen so much
This must be a joke.


I don't know how to feel
I haven't earned it yet
Everything fades so fast.


Let's buy a car with cash and crash it
Buy her the rock she always wanted
Throw money out the window
And watch the happy people catch it.


You can't afford to save your life
Well, I can.
I'll send you to a posh rehab
So you can get clean and it won't be so bad.

Let's buy guitars for all the kids.
I don't want to wake up wondering where it all went.

Nobody can stop us from blowing it all.
It's mine and besides, they never cared what I did.

And it doesn't matter where you go
And it doesn't matter where you are
.

Nobody can stop us from blowing it all.
It's mine and besides, they never cared what I did.


Let's do it now while we still can
Before they take it away

Take it back

Check us out checking in

Ordering room service
We'll have one of everything
And we'll leave a one hundred percent tip.

Nobody can stop us from blowing it all
It's mine and, besides, they've never cared what I'm saying.

Nobody can stop us from blowing it all.
It's mine and, besides, they've never cared.

They've never cared.

Anemia

I want to wear you to bed
I'm hanging on by a thread
Your tattered shirt is all i have
I make love to your monogram
Needing you is killing me
I desire apathy
I need you to hold my head
Soak up this blood with bread
Feed me 'cause i'm underfed
The heart i didn't mean to spill
It suffers from a lack of will
I can't get out of bed until
This deathly pallor is erased
By your sweet hand upon my face
Anemia
I fill my veins with nicotine
To change the nature of the need
I fill my head all up with shame
To change the flavor of the pain
These cigarettes are smoking me
I had a dream that i could sleep
Anemia

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

Mean and Evil

Sentimental sucks
Romantic rots
Domestic death
Happiness hell
I hate people and their ugly faces
You hate things and also places
You're so mean
I'm so evil
What's the matter with me?
Nothing's the matter with me
We're the only ones
That are really free
I'm not faithful
You don't come home
I don't care
You don't share
You're so mean
I'm so evil
I don't need you
You don't call me
I don't miss you
You don't hug me
You're so mean
I'm so evil

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

Juliana's Pony : Total System Failure

Metal Fume Fever

I was passed out
On the factory floor
I couldn't feel my legs
I couldn't swallow
I'm burning metal
For motherfuckers
I'm making weapons
For southern lovers

I got the fever
I got metal fume fever

You might as well do dope
You're gonna get sick
Of something nasty
Out in the modern world
Doubled over
What kind of cancer
Did you ask for?
It came out of the plant
And into the sky
Into your eyes
Into your bones
Into your homes
Into your skin
You can't wash it off your hands

I got the fever
I got metal fume fever

Houseboy

Could you go to the grocery store?
I need pop tarts and orange soda
You can drive the Mercedes
If you say pretty please

You can sleep in my bed tonight
But you better not have dirty feet
And I don't like talking after I fool around
I just like to sleep

Could you go to the drug store?
I need Advil and Robitussin and condoms
Take out the trash, give the dog a bath
Do the dishes and fix the leak in the kitchen

Little white boy, would you be my slave?
Little white boy, would you be my slave?
Little white boy, would you be my slave?
Little white boy, would you be my slave?

Little white boy, you make a great slave
Little white boy, you make a great slave

Road Wrath

I'm trying to passĶ
A fat bastard
In a silver Porsche
Polished and waxed

He don't drive like a man
Fifty in the passing lane
Like an old lady

Just give me a reason
To hit you hard
I'm the king of the road
God is in my car

Teenage bitches
Blaring crap
Out the window of an SUV

Noise pollution
Makes me mad
I could roll them so easily

Just give me a reason
To hit you hard
I'm the king of the road
God is in my car

Just give me a reason
To gun it
Any old reason
Satisfaction

I can't wait
For the market to crash
Executive soaks
In a girly bath

Sucking up all day
Took his brain away
I'm the king of the road
Get out of my way

Let's Get Married

I think I love you
They think I'm desperate
Give me the ring
C'mon let's prove it

Let's get married
And ride away
Let's get married
And rot away

Torture the bridesmaids
Make them wear lime green
Lie to the pastor
Promise forever

Let's get married
And rot away
Let's get married
And rot away

I'm almost thirty
When are you gonna give me a baby?
Let's get a doggie
And tie it to a chain

Fight over TV
My headache grows
I'll show you sides of me
You'd never want to know

Fight over dinner
Put on weight
If you change your sweatpants
I'll shave my legs

Breeders

Scary breeders
They have come
With their sons and daughters

One by one
Mean and dumb
Have another

They got cable
And AC
And cellular technology

Scary breeders
They run me out of town
Creepy breeders

When the baby feeds
And the implant leaks
It's a screaming monster

Shut it up
Put some Pepsi
In the baby's bottle

Or hit it harder
Scary breeders
They run me out of town
Creepy breeders

Those breeders
Strange breeders
Dog breeders
Those breeders

My Protťgťe

You can touch her if you want
You can rub her if you want
She won't struggle if you want
She'll act like you turn her on

She knows just what to say
She's my protťgťe
So much love

There's money everywhere
So laugh at their stupid jokes
She can't live on air
But no one has to know

And if you binge, you gotta purge
She could rule the world
So much love
My protťgťe
My protťgťe

Young hearts
Understand
The future
Is in my hands

My protťgťe
My protťgťe
I taught her everything
She's gonna rock you

Total System Failure

Okay I gotta go
Maybe I don't want to know
There's too much truth in this room
Lock the door hospital food

Do you even know what you're doing?

Laugh in the face of the truly ill
Rehab reject
Who pays the bill?
Tragic flaw
Human nature kills

Do you even hear what you're saying?

The system never failed you
You failed yourself and your mother too
After all she's done for you
Did she raise you to be a fool?

How do you get up in the morning?
Another wasted life it's so boring
The system never failed you
You failed yourself and all of your friends
Now your heart is failing too
A total system failure they pronounce you

The Victim

Someone knocked me up again
Will they blame the victim
When I throw the baby in the trash?
No one said I can't do that
Maybe we should have some
Get born with a drug problem
I don't think about the future
I think about the pain
I scream at the father to shoot me up again

Help me with my diet
The other brats they won't be quiet
Can someone give me something
To make me beautiful and thin?
A plastic surgeon maybe
Could suck the fat right out of me
And if I die or if it hurts
I can sue somebody for all he's worth

Who is looking out for me
When I close my eyes and leap?
It's my life to lead but it's not my responsibility

Who is looking out for me
When I close my eyes and leap?
It's my mind and body
But it's not my responsibility

Using You

I'm choosing you
You are choosing me
Let's get together
And write a screenplay
Who do you want to be?
I'll be the one who gets her way

I'm using you
And you're using me
I'm using you
And you're using me

You thought I loved you
You think I still do
I'm taking a ride
You're my trophy
You're my prize
I'm too scared to go alone
You're too vain to know
When we walk in a room
They stare at you
And I'm cool by association
And I'm gonna get some

I'm using you
And you're using me
I'm using you
And you're using me

I'm using you
And you're using me
For something

I'm using you
And you're using me

Leather Pants

That's it
I'm staying home
Don't even try to make me go
If you put on your leather pants
A Yankee boy in a cowboy hat

Do you even know what you're doing?

Apparently you think it's pretty cool
But that bad boy style is wearing you
Did you learn how to herd cattle in prep school?

Could you just pretend you don't know me?

Take off those leather pants
You can't go out like that
You really don't look phat
I can't be seen with a man wearing leather pants

Look into my eyes
Where the truth is
Do you realize you look stupid?
Get rid of those leather pants
I can't go out like that
You really don't look phat
I can't get down with a Yankee in a cowboy hat

Noblesse Oblige

I showed you how to touch a star
I helped you forget who you are
Baby, you can drive my car
Over to the right side of the tracks

You pushed your greatest chance away
But still I really want to say

I forgive you
I forgive you
I forgive you
I forgive you

I knew your feelings were a lie
But I wanted to go to the dark side
I needed something to write about
Like how it feels to live without

And if you won't apologize
If you can't look me in the eye

I forgive you ...

Ten Foot Pole

Touch me with a ten-foot pole
Can you feel my body's cold?
Look at me through a telescope
Can you see I'm ugly and I'm old

At the other end
Of a broken line
That scratchy voice is mine

Do what you want
I don't care
Do what you want
I don't care

Touch me with a ten-foot pole
I've got no diseases that I know of
Take a bite out of me then swallow
Wrap me up in plastic and take me home
Oh let me go
You've got an evil mind
And I think I'm losing mine

Do what you want
I don't care
Do what you want
I don't care

Do what you want
I don't care
Do what you want
I don't care

Touch me with a ten-foot pole
Touch me with a ten-foot pole

Beautiful Creature

Daniel

At the water's edge
That's where I make my bed
No TV radiation
To fill up my head

My eyes are blue like you
Our babies will be born blue
I wait all day it's torture
He's got something to say that's for sure

He looks alright outside
But he feels so bad inside
He looks so good on the outside
But he feels so bad inside

At the water's edge
That's where I lay my head
With rocks in your pockets
You float on your back
You're drowning in your bed

I watch the birds and bunnies
You look so small and lonely
I live on sugar and honey
This is the sound of no money

He looks alright outside
But he feels so bad inside
He looks so good on the outside
But he feels so bad inside

He looks alright outside
But he feels so bad inside

He looks alright outside
But he feels so bad inside
He looks so good on the outside
But he feels so bad inside

Daniel

He looks alright outside
But he feels so bad inside

Daniel

He looks so good on the outside
But he feels so bad inside

Close Your Eyes

I can't get you out of my mind
Lately you've been so low
You were a friend of mine
And baby you already know
If you'd ask I would try to stop all the rain
And lightning and heat waves
Your world's not over yet

Don't believe in bad dreams
Don't let the dark side bring you down
It's only a dream
Don't be afraid to fall asleep

Close your eyes
Close your eyes

I can see it on your face
Somebody let you down
You're all alone again
You're stuck in this small town
Scary monsters
They may haunt you in your times of sadness
If you could just let her go

Don't believe in bad dreams
Don't let the darkness make you cry
It's only a dream
Don't be afraid to fall asleep

Close your eyes
Close your eyes

Don't believe in bad dreams
Don't let the darkness make you cry
It's only a dream
Don't be afraid to fall asleep

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Close your eyes

Choose Drugs

I withhold your medicine
But you've still got a connection
They remember everything
In the sky, oblivion

I never knew your innocence
Your white skin glistens
You pried my eyes open
I've lost my ambition

I say it's me or drugs
You choose drugs
I say it's me or drugs
You choose drugs

I say it's me or drugs
You choose drugs
I say it's me or drugs
You choose drugs

Drugs, drugs.

Cool Rock Boy

Please erase me
If you don't like what you see
My aching body
I give and you receive

I touch you when you sleep
Are you still alive?
Fetishize your beauty
The scars that you don't hide

Am I bad enough?
Am I dark enough?
Didn't know I wanted to
Turn into you

Hey cool rock boy
What will you take from me?
Cool rock boy
What will you leave me?
Cool rock boy
What will you take from me?
Nothing and everything

Is this heaven or hell?
Losing myself in you
A clean perfect line
Is it what I want to do?

The world gives you everything
My poor baby
Can I feed your pain?
Resolve goes up in flames

Do I sin enough?
Did I say too much?
Do my skin and bones
Get in the way?

Hey cool rock boy
What will you take from me?
Cool rock boy
What will you leave me?
Cool rock boy
What will you take from me?
Nothing and everything

You're gonna hate me
You're gonna hate me
Why do you hate me?
Why do you hate me?

Am I in heaven? Am I in hell? X4
Is this heaven? Is it hell? X4
Hey, cool rock boy ..

Don't Rush Me

You called me from your kitchen
You talked at me but you wouldn't listen
You once had me on that floor
Oh yeah

Sweet memory
Sweet lay
Your weight on me
Don't want to pine my days away
But I miss your body

Don't rush me
I'm leaving
This cut is
Still bleeding
From the promise
Of your lies
I'll let go
In good time

My heart is in the wrong place
I still want to kiss your mean face
Maybe in a month
I'll forgive you for the things you said

Believe me
I hear you
It's so clear
You hurt me
You know where
Standing with a package in the rain full of very heavy air, air

Don't rush me
I'm leaving
This wound is
Still bleeding
From the promise
Of more lies
I'll let go
In good time

Don't write me when you need me
Don't call me when you want me
Compassion, it's not your problem
I won't go out down that way
I'm getting over it

The sun just won't stop shining
I can't remember why I'm crying
It's in my eyes when I'm driving away
Blinding me to you

Don't rush me
I'm leaving
This wound is
Still bleeding
From the promise
Of more lies
I'll let go
In good time

Don't write me when you need me
Don't call me when you want me
Compassion, it's not your problem
I won't go out down that way
I'm getting over it

Don't rush me
I'm leaving
This wound is
Still bleeding
From the promise
Of more lies
I'll let go
In good time
Don't rush me / I'm getting over it
Don't rush me / I'm getting over it
Don't rush me
I'm getting over it
I'm getting over it
I'm getting over it ...

Slow Motion

I think in slow motion
I move in slow motion
Through the smoke
I hear a sound
Through the music
From my brain
To my mouth

When I turn to look at you
With an answer
You have gone
From the room

Like this vodka and cranberry
I drop it eventually
It breaks in slow motion

Might Be In Love

Stuck
On a plane
On a runway
Cheap red eye
It's a one-way

Getting back to you
It takes forever
Will I ever hit the sky?

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I think
I might
Be in love with you

Three
Whole seats
To myself
I'll lie down
And stretch out
But I know that I won't sleep at all
You're all I see when I close my eyes

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I never had any reason not to roam
But tonight it feels like I'm going home

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I think
I might
Be in love with you

I think
I might
Be in love with you

Somebody Is Waiting For Me

You never needed them
You never needed anyone
The life of the party must decline
Your invitation to dine
And I'm sorry that I must go so soon
Please forgive me for finding something real
And pure and true

Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me

I never needed this
I never needed anyone
I meant every word that I said
It's true
I wasn't talking to you

And I'm sorry that I must go so soon
Please forgive me for finding something real and pure and true

Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me

And I'm sorry that I must go so soon
Please forgive me for finding something real and true

Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
Somebody is waiting for me
For me, for me, for me, for me, for me
For me for me for me for me for me for me for me.

Until Tomorrow

They've come to take you away
They've come to put me in my place
Angels are floating down the river
Today

It all happened too soon
On a muggy afternoon
I knew it would end but I'm not ready
To lose you

Heaven can
Wait until tomorrow
Give us this day
Just let me borrow some time
So we can say goodbye

I know that you've gotta go
There are so many things I want you to know
But I don't have to say it
I don't have to explain because you know

And maybe you wouldn't even care
But I feel the need to be there
To thank you for understanding
When I was scared

Heaven can
Wait until tomorrow
Give us this day
Just let me borrow some time
So we can say goodbye

I'm walking away
And when I reach the next stage
I'll be with him
We'll be celebrating

Heaven can
Wait until tomorrow
Give us this day
Please let me borrow some time
So we can say goodbye

The Easy Way Out

You want your mother
She is your heroin
Your daddy didn't love you
You're breaking things again

You don't want to love
You want to fight
You don't want to do it
You're too uptight

Well I know it's got nothing to do with me
I won't be your drama queen

Bad goodbye
You took the easy way out
You want it so bad to be bad
It's an easy way out

Your badge of honour
An image of disease
You bought it on the corner
Instant authenticity

I count the days
How long will it take?
You're selling tickets to the self-destruction
You want the world to see your pain
I didn't come this far to go back again

Bad goodbye
You take the easy way out
You wanted so bad to be bad
It's an easy way out

Your daily bath
Can't keep your conscience clean
You're unequal to the task
And you've got the nerve to be weak

Bad goodbye
You took the easy way out, out, out
You blame it on me
But you're the disease
It's an easy way out

And he cries
Like a girl
And he lies
To the world
And the hate
And the guilt
And the pills
It's an easy way out

Hotels

I miss the sound of laughter
The children down the street
I may not find an answer
It's only memories

Hotels, hotels
Welcome me when I need a home
Hotels, hotels

Days are getting shorter
And the night wind in the trees
And the soft skin on your shoulder
And the way you wanted me

Hotels, hotels
Welcome me when I need a home
Hotels, hotels

Think of me when I'm leaving

Will you give this to my mother?
Once again it's time to leave
There's no ever after
There's only in between

Hotels, hotels
Welcome me when I need a home
Hotels, hotels, hotels
Welcome me when I need a home
Hotels.

When You Loved Me

When you loved me
I was good enough
When you loved me
Music woke me up

But now the silence
Is suffocating
Did I deserve this?
Did I do a bad thing?

When you loved me
Every single day
Was a blessing
Time would fly away

But now every minute
Feels like an hour
Wishing the day would end
Inside the prison in my head

But then you turned me
Into a fool
Watching you walk away
Into another world

When you loved me
I was happy
When you loved me
Never lonely

But then you turned me
Into a fool
Watching you walk away
Into another world
When you loved me, when you loved me
When you loved me, when you loved me

Cry In The Dark

Do you cry in the dark because it's easier to be alone than to talk?
When the words aren't working and you don't know how to explain these thoughts
Every look and every (e)motion has a deeper meaning
Everybody hurts nobody only when they're dreaming

Do you cry in the dark?
The light hurts when it hits your face
You don't want anyone to see you this way
You only want to be loved and taken away by someone
So you cry in the dark

And the picture of you holding hands by the fire is fading fast
And your heart is closing and you don't know how to get off this track
Every day you mime a prayer though your faith is shaken
Your godmother has got nobody because everybody's taken

Do you cry in the dark?
The light hurts when it hits your face
You don't want anyone to see you this way
You only want to be loved and taken away by someone
So you cry in the dark

This emotion is an ocean
The waves are getting high
I'll find an island, call it mine
I'm swimming for my life

Do you cry in the dark?
The light hurts when it hits your face
You don't want anyone to see you this way
You only want to be loved and taken away by someone
So you cry in the dark

In Exile Deo

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

Get In Line

Close my eyes again
I watch you run away
Put my heart on ice
It hurts like hell to have had better days
Up and over the sun
Not forever but higher than heaven
Now I go no one
And I'm dying from lack of love
And affection

Get in line, get in line, get in line
I'm giving myself away
Come on baby, kiss me

It doesn't really matter anyway
One more time
We're all gonna die someday
It's the one sure thing
With a question mark for an answer
Everybody sing
My feeling for you endures like cancer

Get in line, get in line, get in line
I'm giving myself away
Like a jaded ingenue
I tried so hard to get you out of my mind
But the lies I tell myself
They break down over time
Throwing rocks at clouds
To tear their silver linings
Knocking rainbows down
To keep myself from climbing

Get in line, get in line, get in line
I'm giving myself away

Jamie's In Town

Tonight we were going to go
I know
But Jamie's back in town
I'm not gonna answer the phone
I'm not home
Because Jamie's back in town

Jamie's back in town
I can't run into him
I don't want him to see me
On a binge
Na, na, na, na, na

I hate it when Jamie's back in town
I crawl into my cave
With bloodshot eyes
Little sugar pills to ease my mind
I could turn into a butterfly

Please let me know when he's gone
I'll come out
Until Jamie's back in town
Jamie's back in town

Tourist

She answers your questions
But everybody lies
You're not the only one
And it's not her first time
She lets you stay and then leaves
Like a midnight sun
When does she sleep?

You're just a tourist in her world
You want to capture her
But you can't find the words
You can touch her skin
But you're blind to the light within

And in the morning she pulls off her mask
Her brown eyes green
It's a private show
But everybody stares
She turns into a ghost
Of someone that you think you know
But you don't

You're just a tourist in her world

Some Rainy Sunday

A whippoorwill sings
And the morning brings
Sunshine and freedom
A beautiful day
I just couldn't stay
Inside love's prison

But some rainy Sunday
I'll wake from a dream
And wonder if you miss me
Some rainy Sunday
I'll see things your way
And wish that you were with me

Telephone calls
Just hit the wall
And you can't see my side
Tied up with you
In a manic mood
I just scream good-bye

Some rainy Sunday
I'll wake form a dream
And wonder if you miss me
Some rainy Sunday
I'll see my mistake
And wish that you were with me

Tomorrow Never Comes

( Dot Allison Cover )

You're sailing away, to another shore
My heartache today, I can't tell you anymore

And I thought I saw your shadow in the street today
But that was yesterday, oh that was yesterday

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

Believe me I know it's been hard for you
There's never an easy way to let it go

And I thought I saw your jacket in my room today
But that was yesterday, oh was that yesterday?

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

And I dreamt that you were telling me you dreamt of me
But now I'm waking up, oh I think I'm waking up

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

Forever

Red light
Red light
Go to green
Don't make me cry
Don't make me scream
And don't think I don't know
It's already 10:43

I could pray
Or toss and turn all night long
But it hurts
And I know no one that I know
Will see me here

Just one more then I'll quit forever
You're a secret
I try to hide
But people see it in my eyes
And in the way I can't concentrate

When I need you
I think I know how much I've thrown away
If I had you now
I think I'd be okay
I'm just letting go
So I can breathe

Just one more then I'll quit forever
Red light went to green
And now I don't feel anything
Don't think I don't know it's really bad for me
I can't live my life
You're dragging me down
My heart pounding
Is the only sound

If I wake up tomorrow
You'll be gone
Just one more
Then I'll quit forever
Forever
Forever
And ever
Amen

Dirty Dog

Baby I know you want to get high
Well I won't cry
If you get between my sheets
Maybe bleed on me
You can say you love me
Over and over again
I'll still be your friend
But I'm not down with the dirty dog

You can blow your smoke right in my face
And come three hours late
You can steal my concept
And drink my wine
And break my shades
You can flip me over from behind
That would be alright
But I'm not down with the dirty dog

I wanna see fears in your eyes
When I draw the line
I'm not down with the dirty dog

Because We Love You

Daddy dance with me
Too far gone to even speak
Neil Young on the radio
Four dead in Ohio

Daddy are you asleep?
Your son's a mess
And your daughter's a freak
And when you hit the road
This time it's a heavy load

We tried everything to get you back
Even sprung a junkie from rehab
I'll have another drink
If it makes you laugh
We'll try anything
Because we love you daddy

Michael and me
A long long time ago
We were a family
And I don't want to let you go
This life is all we know
We tried everything
To get you to laugh
Even put a monkey on my back

Have another drink
If it makes you sad
We'll try anything
Because we love you
Because we love

Singing In The Shower

Morning has come
Much too soon
He puts on his tie
And thinks of you

Singing in the shower
Dreaming of nights he's been missing
All of his life

Singing in the shower
No one can hear
He's been no one for forty years
He wanted to live like a rolling stone
With a beautiful wife
And city and country homes

Singing in the shower
He's off tonight
He's been no one all of his life
Singing in the shower
No one can hear
He's been waiting for forty years

Tears in his eyes
Washing away
Singing in the shower
No one can hear
He's been waiting for forty years
Singing in the shower
Got no stage fright
He's been practicing all of his life

It Should've Been You

Turn it off
I don't want to dance
It sounds just like you
And he's got your hands
You're big in small circles
Maybe big in France
But my country just never game a damn

It should've been you
But a singer without a song
Who never realized the night is long
When you're sober and out of luck
They'll steal your best lines and your haircut
It should've been you

Lying here with my younger man
He's good-looking but he doesn't understand
That who I am is not my clothes or my car
He's got no soul
But he's a rock star

It should've been you
And I know I'm a fair-weather fuck
I only want you when you're on top
I'm afraid when I feel your love
I turned away
But I'm not better off
It should've been you

Sunshine

Everybody gets down sometimes
You get happy with a sugar buzz
White chocolate is your favorite drug
I go underneath the covers
There are things I do not understand
When I reach out will you slap my hand?

I've been sleeping through my life
Now I'm waking up
And I want to stand in the sunshine
I have never been ecstatic
Had a flower but it never bloomed
In the darkness of my wasted youth
It was hiding in the shadows
Learning to become invisible
Uncover me

Weeping willow
I've been sleeping
I've been sleeping through my life
Now I'm waking up
And I want to stand in the sunshine
Waking up

Forgotten memories of
Laughter and war
That we lived through
And all the people that I never knew
I've been sleeping through
My life
Now I'm waking up
And I want to stand in the sunshine
I'm waking up
I want to stand in the sunshine

Don't Let Me Down

Hitting the wall
Do it all night
I can't resist
I put up a fight
End of the page
Turn it around
I say okay
Maybe I'm wrong
And everything means nothing
But I gotta believe in something

I'll buy anything
That you sell me
I'll believe whatever you tell me
Don't let me down
I need you now
When inspiration fades
Don't leave me now
Please show me how
And send me on my way

Looking for words at the end of the road
Under a rock
I want to grow
Some angel wings
You know what I mean
And when we fly
It isn't a dream

And everything means something
I don't want to believe in nothing
I'll believe whatever you tell me
Baby history can't help me
Don't let me down
I need you now
When inspiration fades
Don't leave me now
Please show me how
And send me on my way

My Enemy

Put your ear next to my beating heart
Still alive
And if you pick me up in your arms
I'll give you one more chance
To try and knock me down again

If you want to stand me up on frozen ground
Go on take aim when I open my mouth

I still love my enemy
I still love my enemy

You appointed me the stoic one
Not allowed to cry these tears
But silence belies the pain
You pushed inside

Impossible to love
Is all that I know how to be
But in my heart
I keep repeating
You didn't mean to hate me

I still love my enemy
I still love my enemy ...

*** Thanx a lot to Alr114 for this one ***

Made in China

*** Thanx a lot to Stacee for these lyrics and Juliana Herself to correct them !! ***

New Waif

You better give this girl something
Because she's dying for a lie
Tell her love is all we need
And we're not fighting for nothing
You see everything it was how she knew
You would find her perfect song between asleep and awake
In simple truths like blood in the streets
Sugar is sweet and the sky is blue

What Do I Care

I feel funny is it over am i dead or asleep on the sofa
Made in china for the masses Iím cheap and plastic there's millions of us yeah
You can buy me you can break me you can laugh but you'll see it's so easy
What the fuck it's a miracle Iím even here
You're over me but Iím alive what do i care
Do you miss it doing dishes Iím amazed you don't find me delicious
Look at me there Iím a rock star in my muumuu you can't see my blah blah
Can you take it when I break it give it back to the posers who fake it
Suck the milk out of the lilacs we were so innocent you can't go back
What the fuck it's a miracle Iím even here
You're over me but Iím alive so what do i care
Standing in the cement
Standing in the cement
Standing in the cement
Buried in that moment
Standing in the cement
Standing in the cement
Standing in the cement
Buried in that moment

What the fuck it's a miracle i'm even here
You're over me I hate New York what do I care

Stay Awake

I don't wanna go to school today
I don't wanna go
I just wanna play guitar all day
You act like you're the only one who has problems
You act like you're the only one who's ever gotten strung out on pills
Pills

I don't wanna have to do the things that people have to do
I'm not a person Iím just an object to you like books and shoes
You act like you're the only one with a chemical imbalance
You're not the only one who's ever looked into a flash

Stay awake
Stay awake
I don't wanna stay awake
I don't wanna stay awake
Stay awake
Stay awake
I'm gonna go to sleep

Stay awake
Stay awake
I'm gonna go to sleep

On Video

It's on video
Baby there's no way you can lie your way out of this one
It's on video
You're looking so transparent you got no skill at seduction no
All the money you bought and the money you won
And the money you got and the money you love's not enough
It's on video
Now all the bleeding hearts have finally got their proof yeah
It's on video
Just cause you say you're a good man doesn't make it true
No
All the money you bought and the money you won
And the money you got and the money you love's not enough

It's on video
It's on video
All the favours you trade with the cops
And all the people you paid off
All the money you bought and the money you won
All the money you got and the money you love
All the money you bought and the money you won
All the money you got and the money you love's not enough

Hole in the Sky

There's a hole in the sky
I stood and stared
I feel it inside what isn't there
The children are lost we can't find them anywhere
Hole in the sky
I'm crying still crying for you
Hole in the sky
I'm crying still crying for you
There's smoke in our eyes it's all over town
Your power and your money they won't help you now
You've unleashed the sun till now and forever burn down
Hole in the sky
I'm crying still crying for you
Hole in the sky
I'm crying still crying for you
Everybody look up with funeral eyes
Wish you had one more chance to say goodbye or i'm sorry

La la da da da la da da da
Hole in the sky
Ah
Hole in the sky
I'm coming Iím coming with you

Oh

It's a basic need to lie and be believed
Step out of line and you will have arrived
Oh oh oh tell me something
Oh oh oh don't say nothing
I'm gonna wait till it rains then Iím gonna burn everything
I'll sing to the clock because no one came
Oh oh oh tell me something
Oh oh oh don't say nothing
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like to be perfect
To be perfect

What it's like
Shine a light on a sob story
Shine it on the dust
This is the age of boredom and deadly weapons
Oh oh oh flip a coin
Oh oh oh to live or die
Why are you so surprised
No one knows what it's like to be perfect
No one knows what it's like
Why are you so surprised
Flip a coin to live or die

My Pet Lion

There's a moment in every day right before it's too late
Innocent child sees the truth but your mother never knew
You snuck downstairs and doused the flames all in vain
Can't hold on gotta let go
Can't hold on gotta let go
You know just what you want
You want ice cream and bags of chips and chocolate
And blood and guts and drugs and sex and cigarettes
And I got tricks to keep me in line
Like being good for a while
I sit on my hands
But my heart speeds up
So i just say what the fuck
I can't hold on i gotta let go
Can't hold on gotta let go

Make me wild
Let me melt

Inside a house on stormy seas the roof is leaking
Under the waves there is no light and everyoneís sleeping
I'm so afraid Iím not in control it's out of control
Rip me to shreds and spit it out all over the world

Make me wild
There's a moment in every day just before it's too late
You can't hold on i gotta let go
Can't hold on gotta let go
I can't hold on i gotta let go
I can't hold on i gotta let go

Going Blonde

Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Baby baby baby
I don't want nothing
Means I want something
Millions of diamonds
Sparkling shining
Singing stupid songs Iím going blonde
Bleach in my brain I dig the pain
Firing squad pointed at the sweet spot
I'm turning myself on Iím going blonde
Never want to be forgotten Iím speaking American
I need some attention tell you my problems
Whatís going on I think Iím going blonde

Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
Nahanahanahah nah nah

Rats in the Attic

My babyís in my blood and in you
And where we are and what the wind blew
Sideways and backwards
Here by the ocean
I got murderous urges
I got murderous urges
There's lead in the water that we drink
And in the paint on the ceiling
Chipped off and falling
There's rats in the attic
I got murderous urges
I got murderous urges

Oh oh
This land is mine full of poison
In hidden corners of my home
Seeds were thrown
There are no weapons so we can't fight what grows inside me
Is it alive
Rats in the attic
Rats in the attic
Rats in the attic

Digital Penetration

Will you get me when i wash ashore
Bring the nightgown i left on your floor
If it's snowing and the truck gets stuck
I get out and help you dig it out
I want you it's 9 degrees without you i will freeze
If you take me to a party that everybody knows the songs but me
I'll sing
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
The snow is dirty in the city
People faking going crazy
Shiny girls with no opinions
Bring the dogs to them so they can choose
There's too much noise here
I can't hear the music in my head
Are you contemplating white lines
I will save you from the spider bites
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
You're my island boy come and live with me
You don't have to pay got my own money
There's a time to work and a time to play
It's a perfect place for the end of side one

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

A Doe and Two Fawns

I stand at the window looking out
Waiting for something i don't know what
They don't see me so they're not scared
But they tread lightly everywhere
Here comes the darkness it comes down fast
Run to the ocean leave tracks in the sand
Sunsets pink and orange and lavender and grey
There's a bird on a branch at the top of the tree
We wanted the world to give us a chance
Now we're pushed out to the edges
If we stand still blinded by the lights
Is it murder or suicide
Here comes the darkness it comes down fast
Run to the ocean over the sand
Here comes the darkness it comes down fast
Run to the ocean leave tracks in the sand

Send Money

When you talk to god tell him i said hi
But he don't need to bless me because i am alright already
Would you kill for Jesus
When you've never met the man you've only read about
I want proof because Iím full of doubt
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money
Don't i wish you could do my thinking for me
But it doesn't work that way
And this marriage is not officially ordained
We just love each other
And i am an unwed mother
I love the world
I love my beautiful girls
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money

If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money
Save yourself
Save yourself
If you want to pray for me tell god to send me some money

Save yourself
Save yourself
If you have to pray for me tell god to send me some money

How To Walk Away

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

The fact remains

I stayed until the star-spangled banner played
And I couldn't keep my eyes open
I stayed till the buds dried up and fell off on the table
And there was no hope of my saving them
Till the last levee broke
And the floods came and washed away our home

Then it was over
And I will never be the same
I finally wised up
But the fact remains
I stayed too long

I stayed till the last of the bottles was empty
And whizzing by my head
I stayed till there was no more air in the room
And my tears no longer moved you
Till you lied and you lied
And you lied and you lied and you lied again

Then it was over
And I will never be the same
I finally wised up
But the fact remains
I stayed too long
I stayed too long

Next time maybe I will know how to walk away
With pride and grace and faith in myself
Knowing how the world works and the way that things change

Till you lied and you lied
And you lied and you lied and you lied again
Till you lied and you lied
And you lied and you lied and you lied again
Then it was over and I will never be the same
I finally wised up
But the fact remains I stayed too long

Then it was over
And I will never be the same
I finally wised up
But the fact remains I stayed too long
I stayed too long

Shining on

Tonight Iím gonna take it easy
I don't wanna be down anymore
It's all still a mystery to me
I've forgotten what we were fighting for
Every light in my mind goes shining on
Every fire that died goes shining on
Every setting sun goes shining on
On and on and on
On and on and on

Do you need a resolution
To understand where the pain is coming from
Were you accused of things you didn't do
Or were you standing in the middle of a dream coming true
Every light in my mind goes shining on
Every fire that died goes shining on
Every star at dawn goes shining on and on
On and on and on

Condemnations tears and lies released from memory
We will always be beautiful beautiful

Condemnations tears and lies released from memory
We will always be beautiful on the night we kissed in the stairwell
Before we really knew each other yet
It may not be easy but we need to forget
All the mistakes disasters and words that should never have been spoken

Every light in my mind goes shining on
Every star at dawn goes shining on
Every setting sun goes shining on
On and on and on
On and on and on
On and on and on
Shining on and on

This lonely love

I broke down on 14th street
I could have been blind
And you could have been anywhere in the world
But I saw you in my mind
In flashing colors
In the middle of the night
Don't they say that in the darkness everything is black and white
This lonely love is all around
It's up in the air and under ground
But without the touch of flesh and blood
This is a lonely love

It's a lonely love

I found myself in Brooklyn
It was as real as a dream
Then I went back up to Boston with absolutely nothing but a feeling
This lonely love is all around
It's up in the air and under ground
But without the touch of flesh and blood
This is a lonely love

It's a lonely love

How I wish I could escape the human things
Don't take me for a woman
I am only the song you sing

I'm alone Iím alone Iím alone Iím alone
Iím alone Iím alone Iím alone

This lonely love is all around
It's up in the air and under ground
But without the touch of flesh and blood
This is a lonely love
This lonely love is all around
It's up in the air and under ground
But without the touch of flesh and blood
This is a lonely love
Lonely love
Lonely love
Lonely love
Lonely love

My baby...

There's an open window where we are
It's a beautiful night full of stars
And isn't it a heavenly breeze
Whispering sweetly through the screen

All the little things are in place
I still like to dream
I still got the same face

But oh my baby doesn't love me any more
Hmm hmm
Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore
Hmm hmm
I just know, I just know, I just know

He used to look in my eyes and talk to me
But now we just have sex and watch TV
And when he touches my body
There's something off with the chemistry

I feel him going through the motions
The same ones that still breed hope in me

Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore
Hmm hmm
Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore
Hmm hmm
I just know I just know I just know I just know

Did he know me, did he know, did he ever
Where does love go, when it goes
It's like a white bird in the snow

He used to want to make me breakfast
But more and more he's sleeping in
And though he doesn't want to hurt me
I know he'll soon be leaving

Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore
Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore
I just know I just know I just know I just know
My baby doesn't love me anymore
Hmm hmm
Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore
Hmm hmm

Oh my baby doesn't love me anymore

Just lust

Is that you banging on my door at three A.M.
And are you wasted again
Normally Iíd stay in bed
So if I get up and open the door
Don't let it go to your head

It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you

Your jealousy and insecurity can be so over the top
I get so fatigued by these long emotional relationship talks
I'd really much prefer my own company most of the time
I never said I can't live without you baby I just said you look good tonight
Normally Iíd be making tracks there's only one reason I came back

It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't necessarily mean that I even like you very much

It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
It's just lust
It doesn't mean I love you
Normally Iíd kick you to the curb

Now Iím gone

Your memoirs are so full of tension
Well don't I merit a mention
Tell them how you're surrounded by idiots
How i was always much too stupid
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone

You're holed up in your country estate surrounded by your sheep
They only love you because yours is the hand that feeds
But there's no stylistic variety
One of us is still hungry

It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
Not coming back
I'm not coming back
Not coming back

I get no apology or a thank you or a please
When I suffer your neglect it's my responsibility
You lounge around your castle fingering your queen
With your chairs that no one sits on
And your starched and ironed sheets
You have no faith in the future
You don't believe
But i still got the holy spirit in me

It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
It was you or me so I left now Iím gone
I'm not coming back
Not coming back
Nah nah nah nah

Remember November

We spoke two different languages
But a touch said everything we couldn't say
Translating every mystery of time and place

Remember November
Remember November

Away in the dark you made me feel something
And gave me a reason to keep trying
Your hands were filled with electricity
Like the moon and stars lit from within
Illuminating something asleep in me

Remember November
Remember November

Away in the dark you made me feel something
And gave me a reason to keep trying
A great escape from a lonely life
A great escape from a lonely life

Remember November
Remember November

Away in the dark you made me feel something
And gave me a reason to keep trying
Away in the dark you made me feel something
And gave me a reason to keep trying
Trying

So alone

It's late at night and you need somebody to talk to
But who of all those people that you once knew
And if you called just what would you say
Would you break down straight away
You're so alone you're so alone you want to die and nobody knows
You're so alone you're so alone you want to die and nobody knows
You keep leaving messages that don't say anything
Like hi how's it going pretending you're ok
You disguise your fear so you don't scare them away
You don't wanna go to sleep because the nightmares keep you awake
Your heart is beating strangely
Nausea and pains throughout your body
You're so alone so alone you want to die and nobody knows
You're so alone so alone you want to die and nobody knows
You're so alone so alone in the night when people go home
You're so alone so alone you're gonna die and nobody knows
You've told everyone who ever meant anything to you to please just go away
So now you've got nobody what are you supposed to do
It's getting late and the night is getting darker and you're fading away you're fading away

And you're talking to yourself
Is this really happening
And Iím talking to myself
Is anybody listening
You're so alone so alone you want to die and nobody knows
You're so alone so alone you're gonna die and nobody knows

Such a beautiful girl

She writes songs at night after everyone has turned out the lights
Though she's still young she's had a hard life
But she's not giving up believing in fate
And it makes a person strong being alone for so long
The family home it's like living in a war zone
Holes are punched in walls but no one seems to care at all
She's such a beautiful girl and she lives in an ugly world
She's such a beautiful girl and she lives in an ugly world
They wanna knock that smile off her face
So she shuts her door and she writes and dreams it's her favorite escape
And she knows it can only get better so with patience she waits
No one ever had her back they only laugh when she cries but in god's eyes
She's such a beautiful girl and she lives in an ugly world
And she's such a beautiful girl and she lives in an ugly world
They wanna knock that smile off her face
So she shuts her door and she writes and dreams it's her favorite escape
And she knows it can only get better and with patience she waits

She's such a beautiful girl but she lives in an ugly world
She's such a beautiful girl but she lives in an ugly world
Beautiful beautiful beautiful
They wanna knock that smile off her face
So she shuts her door and she writes and dreams it's her favorite escape

Law of nature

It comes around at night
It's transparent in the light
You could crush it with a finger
And you'll do it just to watch it die
Flies are feeding on someoneís blood
Isn't it kind of just like love
Do they ever get enough
Reason has no place in this vicious world
And Iím heading your way
Into your burning flame
It's the law of nature
It's the law of nature
I take what i need
Spit out the bones and seeds
Curl up with your skin to keep me warm
Reason has no chance in this selfish world
I don't listen to the preachers
I don't listen to the doctors
I don't listen to the leaders
Reason has no chance in this selfish world
And Iím heading your way
Into your burning flame
It's the law of nature
It's the law of nature
I live and breath
Always hungry for the heat

Reason has no chance in this selfish world
Reason has no chance in this vicious world
And Iím heading your way
Into your burning flame
It's the law of nature
It's the law of nature
Reason has no chance in this selfish world
Reason has no place in this selfish world
It's the law of nature
It's the law of nature
It's the law of nature
It's the law of nature

Peace and Love

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

Peace and Love

You sang me into my dreams
So I forgave you everything
You held my hand Ďtil I was asleep
You checked my heart periodically
With an ear to my ribcage you made sure I was still breathing
Then you left when I awoke
Never to be seen again

I wonít give up on peace and love
I wonít give up on peace and love

I donít want to be angry
It takes too much energy
Itís such a waste of time
Falling off of this thin line
I just gotta get back up
Stop waiting on apologies
Everything will happen if itís meant to be

I wonít give up on peace and love
I wonít give up on peace and love

Donít give up on peace and love
Donít give up on peace and love
Donít give up on peace and love

I want the ice to melt
I want the sun to shine
On me and my enemies
I want us all to be happy
I want the pain to go away
I want to sleep a while
I want to think of you and smile

The End Of The War

Iím on my way
When winter comes
Iíll be okay again
So quiet here
And no more tears
Just bloody memories
I survived the famous fall
Our injuries explain it all
Empty shells on the beach like poems
Cowards lie down in the tall grass
Waiting for the battles to pass
Theyíll do anything to save themselves
You sent someone to fight for you
But no one fought for me
I advanced into the fray
To kill the sorrow and the pain
I was tired and so hungry
At the end of the story
Now Iím building strength
I paid such a price to be free

Why Canít We Love Each Other

I feel like Iím broken
I know you feel the same
Weíre pretty damaged, fragile and afraid

Why canít we love each other
Why canít we love each other

We both need somebody
Our houses are not homes
Why donít I ever see you
When you live just down the road

It is a choice
We can make our lives a song
Will it be a blues or a hymn
A dirge or a psalm
Why canít we love each other
Why canít we love each other

Life is so short what are we waiting for
Why canít we love each other
Why canít we love each other
Why canít we love each other

It could be so simple
Just tell me what you want
Donít keep it to yourself
Donít stay shut in for too long

Arenít you tired of being lonely
Arenít you sick of crying your eyes out
Donít you want to stick with something
Are you ready for forever now

Why canít we love each other

Butterflies

Iím trying to get through this night
Without any help from anyone
I close my eyes and try to breathe
After a while I drift off to sleep
And then I see butterflies everywhere
Landing on my palms and in my hair
So fragile and beautiful
Like all the souls of people
So easily broken
Wings can be torn apart by a hard rain
A red red rain
A red red rain

Butterflies
Everywhere
Landing on my palms
And in my hair

What Is Wrong

What is wrong
Why canít you sleep
What is your trouble
Donít you miss your dreams
Canít you find a reason to keep believing
What is wrong
You need to eat
Didnít you hear me
I swore Iíd never leave
Canít you find a reason to keep believing

What tears you up and breaks you down
When I wake will you be gone

Youíre disappearing
Slipping away
Why canít this be as easy as it is to breathe
Canít you find a reason to keep believing
I donít need a reason to keep believing

What is wrong
Why canít you sleep
Why are you still doubting
I swore Iíd never leave

Evan

Evan, Iíve never been the same since the day I hit my forehead
On the doorframe when I jumped over you and out of the bed
To answer the phone in my motherís room.
There was blood but I was all smiles Ďcause I was in love.

The mourning doves were waking up.
Now people tell me youíre a casualty
But thatís just a story theyíve heard.
ĎShafts of light dart down between the treesí
Canít speak to you in spoken words.
Oh if we could only be but we could never be.
Evan, weíre burned by the same sun wherever you are, wherever I run.
Iíve never been completely anywhere. I never could count on anyone.
Iíve tried to write you off but I canít so Iíll give it up.

Evan, I just love you, I guess.

Letís Go Home

The leaves are turning to yellow orange and red
The Street is like a painting
You should see it

Baby Iím sorry
Come back with me
Letís go home

I made the bed for you
I stocked the fridge with food
I swept under the couch
I havenít seen the mouse

The dog is dreaming
The radiatorís clanging
Same old everything

But something is missing

Baby Iím sorry
Come back with me
Letís go home

I love you so much
But a love I canít touch
Iím trying to let go
And breathe real deep and slow

The train is so lonely when youíve got nobody
At the other end
Hold my hand again
Donít let go
Theyíre just little bumps in the road

I Picked You Up

Thereís nothing worse than a sad man alone
Who came from nothing and said he is done
A hotel is just a temporary home
Go out into the light now

I picked you up
ĎCause maybe Iím what you need
You didnít know it
But you were saving me, too
Letís make some music and talk everything through
I picked you up Ďcause I needed you

You fell in with a guy and a girl
Over coffee your story made her cry
You stopped looking you stopped hoping you stopped sleeping
Very well
But donít say you didnít try

I picked you up
ĎCause baby Iím what you need
Maybe you didnít know it but you were saving me, too
Letís make some music and talk everything through
I picked you up Ďcause I needed you

You walked out the door and down the street
And you fell
On your phone
I was suddenly there
Out of the blue and into the red
I saw your face and I knew it

I picked you up

I know who you are
ĎCause I know who I am
And my friend, Iím taking you home with me
Where you can finally sleep

I picked you up

Faith In Our Friends

Love comes and goes out the window
Lovers ask too much
Youíre always not something enough
Or youíre just Ďtooí - too honest, too mad, or too blue
But your friends think youíre just right the way you are
They donít hold it against you if you got a stormy heart
And if you find that youíve lost all hope in men
You can still have faith in your friends

That last one really let you down
He stuck you in that place alone
He was weak when he needed to be strong
He never visited and he never even called
And he knew how hard it was for you

You promised yourself that you wouldnít fall for the wrong guy
And now you need someone to pull the needle from your eye
Every time I say I canít go through this again
I go back to my faith in my friends

There for you in the middle of the night
With blurry eyes
Youíre grief-stricken
But you can curse and cry with no consequences or conditions
Your friends think you are right just the way you are
They donít hold it against you if you got a stormy heart
And if you find that youíve lost all hope in men
You can still have faith in your friends

You promised yourself that you wouldnít fall for the wrong guy
And now you need someone to pull the needle from your eye
Every time I say I canít go through this again
I thank god for my faith in my friends

Iím Disappearing

My bluest veins are hidden by what Iím wearing
My palest skin is almost transparent
It feels like a bird of prey could take me away
Iím disappearing
Iím disappearing

Iím afraid this heart beats too slow
I have failed to make myself known
Still I fight with all my strength down to the bones
Iím disappearing
Iím disappearing

Iím losing again
I just nod my head
And refuse everything
From here in my bed
A heavy heart must shed its weight
For the life thatís bound to escape

Iím losing again
I just nod my head
And refuse everything
Itís my punishment

Iím disappearing
Iím disappearing

Dear Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,
Why do you taunt me
The war youíre in is all in your head
Oh my god it must be terrible
To be too scared to sign your name
And too ashamed to show your face
Oh what did they do to you to make you this way

Dear Anonymous
Do you think the sun shines on everyone but you
But canít you see Iím nobody too
Iím just singing into the void, just trying to say my piece/peace
I thank god I got no real enemies
I killed them all with kindness so we could live in peace

Dear Anonymous,
Too scared to sign your name, your name

Thereís Always Another Girl

Change The World

If I believed in luck
I would go up to the roof
Gamble on the moon being full
Like I had something to lose

I was gonna change the world
But Iím not gonna change the world
I was gonna change my ways
But I have not changed

If I had faith in me and you
Like I used to
Iíd call on Jesus
To carry us back to the tour bus
And take us to the hard edge of the earth

We were gonna change the world
But weíre not gonna change the world
And I was gonna change my ways
But I have not changed

Iím still the same
I put my hands in my gloves
And I grip my cup
Good things came my way
And I didnít have to pray

Taxicab

In a swerve on a curve
See an opossum through the glass
Iím dizzy in the back
Can you please tell me where Iím at

Taxicab
Going so fast
Take me back

Taxicab
Let up on the gas
Bring me back

How did I get here
I smell burning leaves
I donít recognize the scenery

I donít think Iím ready
I canít find my money
This is not where I thought I would be

Taxicab
Youíre going so fast
Bring me back

Taxicab
Let up on the gas
I think I wanna go back

Pink hearts and green rivers
Orange cones and red deserts
Black birds and white snow
And graveyards and stone walls
And hard sounds and something
Thatís sparkling on the ground

Rain drops and lightning
And a girl on a bike
She is sneaking out tonight
A wet plastic bag
Hanging from a tree branch
And a dog with no collar

Taxicab
Youíre going so fast
Taxicab
Youíre going so fast
Taxicab
Itís going too fast
Gone like that

Donít Wanna Dance

I feel like lying down
I donít feel like jumping around
Iím so tired and itís so late
And fights are gonna break out

I donít wanna get up
I donít think Iím drunk enough
Oh why canít you see that itís not easy for me to be me

No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Gotta gotta gotta gotta go home now
No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Itís too bad and the musicís too loud

I canít shake my problems away
Do they really think itís gonna be okay
The driving beat is like a hammer to my brain
Perfume, cologne and sweat and pheromones
Getting all over their telephones
Oh flashing lights might bring on an epileptic seizure

No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Gotta gotta gotta gotta go home now
No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Itís too dark and the musicís too loud

No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Gotta gotta gotta gotta go home now
No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Back away back away and sit down

No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
I gotta gotta wanna wanna go now
No no no no no no no
I donít wanna dance
Itís too bright and the musicís too loud

Thereís Always Another Girl

People love it when a beautiful woman self-destructs
Like a tiger in a cage or a bug under glass
People point but donít touch

But beautiful boys get away with so much
They get away with murder
They can be wasted and dirty and cruel

ĎCause they know thereís always another girl

And you want her
You want her, you want her
You really want her
Oh sheís a mirage
In the desert
Sheís like water

Boys geniuses can be ugly and fat
But they donít cut their girls any slack
Girls are advised to not think about the future or the past

It matters not where they came from
Or whether or not they endure
What matters is if they can make all heads turn

ĎCause thereís always another girl

You want her
You want her, you want her
You really want her
Youíre hot and youíre thirsty
And youíre in the desert
And sheís like water

She smiles until her face is petrified and begins to crack
She wraps her hands in plastic bags at night
She wants to preserve what she has

And you want her
You want her, you want her
You really want her
Youíre hot and youíre bothered and youíre thirsty
And youíre in the desert
And sheís like water

They pluck their hairs one by one
And stand on their heads
Itís no fun
They cut their skin
And it hurts to know
Thereís always another girl

Donít you love it when a beautiful woman self-destructs

Candy Wrappers

In the arms of another
You always have trouble sleeping
It never feels like heaven
It never seems like a sweet thing
And the night is long
You want to jump into the heart of a song

Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor
Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor

This passion is poison
It only brings you shame
Dropped and broken
Never see this place again
Run like hell
Will everybody just stop trying to tell me not to

Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor
Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor

You know the reasons
But knowing doesnít change anything
You still canít let anybody ever touch you where they hurt you

You just want to feel better
Again and again and again and again and again
And again and again and again and again

Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor
Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor

Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor
Candy wrappers

Someone Elseís Problem

She left her stuff and took off
While you were on the road
She finally decided
You are someone elseís problem

The old guitar on the wall
Precariously hung
And when it falls it will become somebody elseís problem

Everybody closed their doors and turned away
They donít need you
They shut their eyes and try to sleep
But in their dreams they will see you

Bills donít stop coming in
So you just stop paying them
The cost has now become somebody elseís problem

Your itchy skin and dirty feet
You scratch at them until they bleed
The heart that doesnít beat is someone elseís problem

Everybody closed their doors and turned away
They donít need you
They shut their eyes and try to sleep
But in their dreams they still see you

You blew it all very well by yourself
And everybody knows that every hell is someone elseís problem
Make your bed, jump in it
Let the candle burn until
The nightmare has become somebody elseís problem

Everybody close your doors and turn away
Everybody close your eyes and turn away
Everybody close your doors and turn away
Everybody close your eyes and turn away

Sex And Drugs

She was a virgin until you
She was something to do
She was a canvas ready to be
Painted full of misery and disease

Sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Sex and drugs, sex and drugs

Sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Sex and drugs

Younger girls love to please
She brings you chocolate chips to eat
You have got such sweet teeth
You lost a couple recently

Sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Sex and drugs, sex and drugs

Sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Sex and drugs

You have done everything
You are not touched by anything
Not by longing, regret, or shame
Or love or sun or rain

Or sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Sex and drugs, sex and drugs

Or sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Or sex and drugs

Sex and drugs, sex and drugs
Sex and drugs, sex and drugsÖ

Stray Kids

Where we come from
They leave their young
On their own
By the side of the road

In the milkweed
We split them open
And release the seeds

Never saved
Never healed
Never tell how you feel
Keep it all to yourself
All the things you canít help

House is empty
And locked from inside
We got no key
And weíre hungry

We climb up roofs
We break windows
To get in
Weíre shivering

Never saved
Never healed
Never tell how you feel
Keep it all to yourself
All the things you canít help

Over the rain
There is blue sky
Every new day
Brings some new fight

After the rain
There is clear sky
Every new day
Turns back to night

Never saved
Never healed
Never tell how you feel
Keep it all to yourself
All the things you canít help

Failure

Standing in the yard
Counting the leaves
Waiting for a lightning bolt
To bring me to my knees

Will I be let down
By the sunshine and the earth and the clouds

Lying on the couch
With a tabloid magazine
How to keep the dream the alive
Gotta do it for the money

If I say it a hundred times
Can I learn to believe the lie
Donít believe in promises
It wonít happen unless it does
Donít believe in miracles
Some problems cannot be solved

Shooting blades of grass
Shadows move so fast
All the things I thought I knew
Now where do I go and what do I do

Failure, failure, failure, failure, failure
Failure, failure, failure, failure

Vagabond

She seems so free
Sleeping under the stars
Getting clean in the ocean
Hitch a ride in somebodyís car

Vagabond, vagabond, vagabond
Whereíd you come from

And oh when itís cold
Where will you go

Find an empty house
But the fire wonít start
Your jacket is feeling thin
And your boots are splitting open

Vagabond, vagabond, vagabond
Whereíd you come from

Theyíll pick you up
And theyíll pass you around
Theyíll find you wine-stained
And frozen on the ground

Where will you go
When youíre all alone

Vagabond, vagabond, vagabond
Whereíd you come from
And where will you go

And Again

In the arms of another
You always have trouble sleeping
It never feels like heaven
It never seems like a sweet thing
And the night is long
You want to jump into the heart of a song

Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor
Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor

This passion is poison
It only brings you shame
Dropped and broken
Never see this place again
Run like hell
Will everybody just stop trying to tell me not to

Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor
Candy wrappers
All over the hotel room floor

You know the reasons
But knowing doesnít change a thing
If you still canít let anybody ever touch you where they hurt you

You just want to feel good
Again and again and again and again
And again and again and again

Batteries

You lay down to start a song
With headphones on the drug goes straight to your heart
But very soon the music stops
Shot you down right at the most important part

The batteries are dead
Totally dead
The batteries are dead
Completely dead

You left your phone in my car
I watched it move across the seat and then nothing
Was somebody wanting you
Weíll never know 'cause I threw that phone out the window

The batteries are dead
Totally dead
The batteries are dead
Completely dead

This is a test
The war is coming
This is where we rest
Before reloading

Again and again
Like blazing sunshine
Heads hit the wall
Explode and rewind
Totally dead

The batteries are dead
Completely dead
The batteries are dead
Totally completely dead
The batteries are dead
Completely fucking dead
The batteries are dead
Completely dead

Wasting Time

Donít need to know your name
Come on letís slip away

Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time

Weíre wasting time
Your place or mine
Weíre wasting time

Beautiful sister
With the golden hair
Youíre like the flowers
Sweetening the air

Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time

Weíre wasting time
Your place or mine
Weíre wasting time

Losing precious time
Minutes rushing by
Think that you can love me
Before you know
Donít make me explain the emptiness inside
Iíll draw you a picture while you drive

Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time

Weíre wasting time
Your place or mine
Weíre wasting time

Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time
Weíre wasting time

Weíre wasting time
Your place or mine
Weíre wasting time

Thousands Of Guitars

Now your standards change with poverty
Certain things become luxuries
So drive yourself down to the pawn shop
Thereís nothing to cry about

There are thousands of guitars
All over the world
So shake off that sorrow, shame and self-pity
Your í69 SG was never a necessity
The Beatles and Stones and Raspberries
Will always be there to remind you of what will always be

Thousands of guitars all over the world
Millions, even
All over the world
Stop holding on
The rest have all been sold
Give her a kiss goodbye
Then just let her go

Donít you know that they never really die
Thereís no graveyard or heaven in the sky
Thereíll be one for you when you can
Theyíre everywhere
They just change hands

Thousands of guitars
Hold on to your soul
Never give it away
And youíll always be all right

Juliana Hatfield

Cells

The battle's lost without a fight

Breaking down cells
Breaking down

It's ever onward to the grave
I have no fear but Iím not brave

Learn To Fly

( Foo Fighters )

Run and tell all of the angels, this could take all night
I think I need a devil to help me get things right
Hook me up a new revolution Ďcause this one is a lie
We sat around laughiní and watched the last one die

Iím looking to the sky to save me
I'm looking for a sign of life
I'm looking for something to help me burn out bright
Iím looking for a complication
I'm looking Ďcause Iím tired of lying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high

I think Iím dying nursing patience
It can wait one night
Iíd give it all away if you give me one last try
Weíll live happily ever trapped if you just save my life
Run and tell the angels that everythingís alright
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Iím looking to the sky to save me
Iím looking for a sign of life
Iím looking for something to help me burn out bright
Iím looking for a complication
Iím looking Ďcause Iím tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high
Make my way back home when I learn to fly

Fly along with me, I canít quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own
Fly along with me, I canít quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own

Iím looking to the sky to save me
Iím looking for a sign of life
Iím looking for something to help me burn out bright
Iím looking for a complication
Iím looking Ďcause Iím tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to

Iím looking to the sky to save me
Iím looking for a sign of life
Iím looking for something to help me burn out bright
Iím looking for a complication
Iím looking Ďcause Iím tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly
Make my way back home when I learn to fly
Make my way back home when I learn to fly

Bad Moon Rising

( Creedence Clearwater Revival )

I see the bad moon rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightning
I see bad times today

Don't go around tonight
Well, it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don't go around tonight
'Cause it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise
All right

I hope you have got your things together
I hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we're in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Don't go around tonight
'Cause it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Don't go around tonight
Well it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Don't go around tonight
'Cause it's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise

Ready For Love

( Bad Company )

Walking down this rocky road
Wondering where my life is leading
Rollin' on, to the bitter end
Finding out along the way
What it takes to keep love living
You should know, how it feels my friend
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh, I want you to stay
Oh, I want you today
I'm ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Oh, for your love

Now I'm on my feet again
Better things are bound to happen
All my dues, surely must be paid
Many miles and many tears
Times we had but now they're changing
You should know that I'm not afraid

Oh, I want you to stay
Oh, I want you today
I'm ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Oh
Ready for your love

Oh, I want you to stay
Oh
I'm ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love
Ready for love
Oh baby, I'm ready for love

Self Machine

( I Blame Coco )

I saw the mirror staring back at me
And it told me I'm a self machine
I saw the mirror staring back at me
And it told me I'm a self machine

It said I gave you these scars
And I gave you these wounds
I told you the false
And I showed you the truth

I saw the mirror staring back at me
And it told me I'm a self machine

Lonely robot in a wasteland
Rusting in a lonely harbour
Lonely robot in a wasteland
Rusting in the harbour's water

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop

And the impression of my self machine
The word was spoken and it was foreseen
And I am powered by this gasoline
My eyes lit up as if by kerosene
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
See constellations and stars and the powers that be
Engaged in the dance, this robotic routine
Are we two worlds apart or in between
A pixel lost on a computer screen

Lonely robot in a wasteland
Rusting in a lonely harbour
Lonely robot in a wasteland
Rusting in the harbour's water

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop

Wait harbor, wait
Water still, water still
And shake, the ground will shake
The earth stand still, the earth stand still

Lonely robot in a wasteland
Rusting in a lonely harbour
Lonely robot in a wasteland
Rusting in the harbour's water

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop
Won't stop, won't stop

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop

Fruit Fly

( Nada Surf )

Left some food warped up
In a plastic bag
On the kitchen table
Way too long

I sat down to eat
Next to the bag
I was too tired
To throw it out

I saw a swarm of fruit flies
I took the bag downstairs
When I came back
They were still there

Flying jerky patterns
Like snowflakes in the air
I'm sorry
You've got nowhere to go
I'm sorry
You've got nowhere to go

Left straight right straight
I can't find a reason
I know I'll keep going but
I can't find a reason

Nothing looks right
Nothing smells right
And I can't land

Geometric patterns
Smearing out of control
Only have enough gas left
For the beercan to the bowl

What can you do but go on
What can you do but go on
What can you do but go on
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh no you make your own mistakes
I cannot bring them back to you
Oh no you make your own mistakes
I cannot measure up to you

Oh no you make your own mistakes
I cannot bring them back to you
Oh no you make your own mistakes
I cannot measure up to you

Closet by

( Pete Yorn )

Oh Billie I want you so
Iím trying to meet you
Too many things they donít know
Too many repeatings of beatings

And Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again
I'm walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again

So Billie I lost control
Iím trying to meet you
Too many things they donít know
Too many repeatings of beatings

So Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again
Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So donít stop
Donít stop
Donít turn around

So Billie I lost control
Iím trying to meet you
Too many things they donít know
Too many repeatings of beatings
Of beatings

And Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again
Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again

Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again
Iím walking around your closet
I want you to say my name again

So Billie I lost control
I want you to say my name again
Oh Billie I lost control
I want you to say my name again
So Billie I lost control
I want you to say my name again
Oh Billie I lost control
I want you to say my name again

Donít stop
Don't stop
Donít turn around

Sweet Is The Night

( Electric Light Orchestra )

When the day is done and there's nowhere to run
And the people of the city have all lost and won
In your city dress, you stand and stare
And you smoke another cigarette and comb your hair

And the light that shines
Paints a trace of sadness on the street
And I wait
But I can't seem to get to you

Well, you start to sway, check your Cartier
'Cause it's getting late, you can't afford to wait
So you move along where it's going on
And the people of the night are playing 'till the dawn

And the sun that shines
Paints a trace of sadness in your eyes that cry
Wishing and hoping, oh

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near

Well, you did your thing and you lost your wings
And you hurt so bad, you lost everything
And the tears that fall on the city wall
Will fade away
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
With the rays of morning light that shines
Paints a smile across your pretty face
I know everything is alright
Alright

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near

Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Dark, dark were the days
They disappear
Sweet, sweet is the night
Now you are near
Now you are near

Do I Wait

( Ryan Adams )

Do I want to say the things I say
When I know that they are wrong
Do I wait here forever for you
Would you ask me to

I've been waiting here, all night
If you're not going to show
We're not gonna fight
I could stay, forever if I tried
Surrounded by things
Like a shadow in the light

Do I try and stay still for you
And the clowns who park here
Fill the emptiness of the room
Do you watch me from the corner of your eye
Do we say goodbye
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I waited in the ways
For you to appear
But you're never coming back
You're never gonna feel
Like we did, I waited all night
I tried to let you go
Like a shadow in the light

Do I wait
Do I wait
Do I wait
For you

Do I wait here forever for you
Did you ask me to

Friend Of Mine

( Liz Phair )

Not a lot of patience, you're not a patient man
Don't have the heart to stay with
You get it while you can
Just because you can
Get out of it
And I wasted your time denying
That that's the reason we fight all the time
It's been so long since you've been a friend of mine
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Gonna take a vacation
Stop chasing what I lack
Am I gonna get blown off
As soon as I get back
On another track
Without you

'Cause I don't have the heart to try
One more false start in life
It's been so hard to get it right, it seems like
The moment I catch up, the farther you fly

And I wasted your time denying
That that's the reason we fight all the time
It's been so long since you've been a friend of mine

And I wasted your time, didn't I
And that's the reason we fight all the time
It's been so long since you've been a friend to me
It seems like I dreamed and now I'm waking up to daylight
What happened, when did you let go of me
I miss you so badly
It's been so long since you've been a friend of mine

My Wife

( The Who )

My life's in jeopardy
Murdered in cold blood is what I'm gonna be
I ain't been home since Friday night
And now my wife is coming after me

Give me police protection
Gonna buy a gun
So I can look after number one
Give me a bodyguard
A back belt Judo expert with a machine gun
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane
When she catches up with me
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough to send her half insane

I'm gonna buy a fast car
Put on my lead boots
And take a long, long drive
I may end up spending all my money
But I'll still be alive

All I did was have a bit too much to drink
And I picked the wrong precinct
Got picked up by the law
And now I ain't got time to think

Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane
When she catches up with me
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough to send her half insane

Gonna buy a fast car
Put on my lead boots
And take a long, long drive
I may end up spending all my money
But I'll still be alive

And I'm oh so tired of running
Gonna lay down on the floor
I gotta rest some time
So I can get to run some more, yeah

She's coming
She's coming
She's coming
She's coming
She's coming

Rock And Roll

( Led Zeppelin )

It's been a long time since I Rock and Rolled
It's been a long time since I did the Stroll
Oh, let me get it back, let me get it back
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from

It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

It's been a long time since the book of love
I can't count the tears of a life with no love
Oh carry me back, carry me back
Carry me back, baby, where I come from
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight
Making vows that just can't work right
Oh open your arms, opens your arms
Open your arms, la la la la la la

It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Sleep

It's hard to get to sleep with all the pictures in my head
You're so far away but in my dreams I'm in your bed

Rolling over
Going under
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
All the deserts, all the oceans, it all feels the same
It's too much or it's not enough, I circle 'round again

Soften my senses
Dull every edge
Light's going down now
Patience

June 6th

I was sitting in my car
Looking at the house
I was in the audience
I was standing in the back of the club
They're selling the house

Something's gone
I can't find
What I left in the basement
How long has it been gone
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I like dreaming
Where everything is new
And nothing has been decided upon
Like how you feel or what to do

Something's lost
The life you wanted to live
Let me leave
Don't listen to me

Don't go away again
Don't go away again
Don't send me away again
I won't send you away again

Spit in the Wind

Feet in the sand
Head in the sky
Made another plan
Changing your mind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Throw it to me
Come inside
Prove you don't need me to decide

Secrets to keep
Until I die
Spit in the wind
Don't apologize

Show it to me
Come inside
Prove you believe
Or I will decide

When you reach out
And no one's there
I might be gone
But you will survive

Parking Lots

They cut you open to get at your heart
Sounds like a metaphor for something but it's not
Like a bad memory lodged in your mind
With your eyes taped shut, metaphor for blind

When you were coming out roads were closing up
Fugitive kindness and love like raindrops
It was so much more than the physical
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na

Don't break down 'til you get to the parking lot
Keep it together until you're in your car
Betrayed by the promise of a child
That took away half your smile
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
This is not where you thought youd ever be
When you finally made the move to leave
So many questions still remain
So many metaphors for pain

They cut you open to get at your heart
Sounds like a metaphor for something but it's not
Like a bad memory lodged in your mind
With your eyes taped shut, metaphor for blind

When you were coming out roads were closing up
Fugitive kindness and love just like raindrops
It was so much more than the physical
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na

Don't break down 'til you get to the parking lot
Keep it together 'til youre safe in your car
Betrayed by the promise of a child
That took away half your smile

This is not where you thought you'd ever be
When you finally made the move to leave
So many questions still remain
So many metaphors for pain

I can't cry when I'm singing
Open my eyes
Made something to find

Dog On a Chain

You can't take it anymore
So put me out the back door
And slam it hard shut

I watched you clean up after me
I cut myself and let it bleed
All over your favourite rug
The one you love
It's Persian

Don't ever let me out of here
Just bring me back some souvenirs
From the world

Something I can tear apart
Paper, plastic, flesh or heart
I will destroy everything if I'm set free
So don't untie me

I had to set these boundaries
Or I'll run into the street
And get run over by an s.u.v.
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I bark and growl and drool and snap
Take both hands and pull me back
By my neck

I must stay in the fenced-in yard
Scratching myself Ďtil I'm raw
I'm always hungry for something
For broken skin

I never get any satisfaction
I had to draw these boundaries
'Cause I'll run into the street
And get run over by an s.u.v

Hurt Me

Hurt me
Hate me
Make me want to leave

Bait me
Hook me
Maybe let me breathe

All night long
What went wrong

Hurt me
Kick me
When I'm on my knees

Break me
Hit me
Hard so I can't leave

I'm sweating all night
And there is no breeze
And I'm burning on fire
Why won't you set me free
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hurt me, hate me, make me want to leave
Turning and tossing and praying for a breeze

Sing me nightmare lullabies
In my bed
My head spins

I'll never be just what you want
I'll never dance
I'll never move the way you want me to

Hurt me
Hate me
Make me want to leave

I'm sweating all night
And there is no breeze
And I'm burning on fire
Why can't you set me free

Hurt me
Hate me
Let me breathe

Tracks

Every time I leave my house
Everything falls apart
Things that I thought
Move like raindrops

Wash my mouth out with soap
Or maybe I just won't talk
The line that I draw
It won't be crossed

Oh I know that I will always be okay
Everybody leaves
Everybody leaves
Everybody leaves tracks
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Not gonna leave
I'm not gonna leave
I'm not gonna leave tracks

Weighed down by history
Pacts that we made
Well I've not made any promises today

In puddles at my feet
People I believed
I'm skipping down the street
Away

Oh I know that I will always be okay
Oh I know that I will always be okay

Everybody leaves
Everybody leaves tracks
Everybody leaves tracks

Everybody leave my house
Everybody leave my house...

Push Pin

The records on the player and the cat is on the phone
You take your longest finger and you stick it deep inside the hole
I hear your voice and I'm a born-again whore
You blow smoke up my nose and you never close the door

Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium

Exploding hearts
Bite my tongue
Sugar blood
Take a four-minute vacation
That's all I need to get me off
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
A four-year headache
Made me crazy
Now you're back
You're my crack
I don't wanna
Please don't make me go back

Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium

Why do you have to know what's always going on in my head
It's angry dogs and broken lines
Are you still a tornado
Real time is just too slow
Slow
No, no, no
Let's go

Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium

Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium
Take the push pin out of my cranium

Or So They Say

There is a hotel
Over in mission hill
And it's decent place to stay
Or so they say

I always stayed away
I heard it was dangerous
But they've cleaned up mission hill
Or so they say

But I don't know
'Cause all I know
It never changes
In this room
And every day is exactly the same

Love is alive its real
People are breaking through
Having emotional moments
That don't destroy you

Sounds coming from upstairs
Music and dancing feet
I'm welcome to join the party
Or so they say
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But they don't know that all I know is how to be by myself
I don't know what they know
I try to see so I can follow
But I'm walking on eggshells on eggshells
On eggshells around everyone
Friends and strangers and family
So I'll at ease

Love Is Like the Wind

Play me a song
Is all I want
To feel how it felt when you sang of me
But it was never really mine
The timing was off
And it was all unfinished

Love is like the wind
And I can't hold on
But is never really gone

Like a scent in the haze
Honeysuckle and lilac
Memories come back
My long hair is whipping across my face
Then the sail goes slack
And we stop moving

Love is like the wind
And I can't hold on
And is never really gone

Places you went in your head
Somebody else came and saved you
I wanted it to be me
But I had no claim
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Love is like the wind
And I can't hold on
And is never ever bound
Is never really gone
Never really gone

Never Beg

I told you where I needed to go
I told you where I needed to be
My life has just begun
I will have everything I want
But you wouldn't take me
Take me seriously

I found the secret to love
I found the secret to life
I found the secret to happiness
It's in my hands

The truth is your secret
That no one can tell you
You have to live through it
You'll never get it out of me

The feelings that go deepest
Are not for sharing
My greatest intentions
Are never ending
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I got through every night
Without any help from anyone

You have to learn how to say no
You have to learn how to say no
You have to learn how to say no
You have to learn how to say no
You have to learn how to say no

You have to learn how to say no
Or he won't love you tomorrow
