97 DEGREES

It's already done
I'm down on my knees
Look what you done
You've made a fool out of me

It's already too late
You've given me the taste

Look what you've done
There's no turning round
I forget today
I couldn't turn it down

It's all in the details
No reason, just face

You'd better give me some
Of the magic stuff
It's all in the thought
I'm burning up
I'm burning up

It's 97 degrees
Look what you've done
You've ruined everything

You better hurry up
With that magic stuff
It's all your fault
I can't get enough












A DOG CALLED MONEY

The kids are rolling dice for change
sitting on the backyard steps calling Money's name

Old guy walking to the store
Chewing on a cocktail stick stops to tell us what is what

He says Everything is staged, that's how it is
People are just paid and bought, and I'm tired of it
What are you gonna do to change it?
Everything is staged, that's what's going on

The kids rolling dice again
The sun is beating down, I ask the old guy's name

He smiles, the pitbull runs our away
The kids call out for him, Money! Money!

He says Everything is staged, that's how it is
People are just paid and bought, and I'm tired of it
What are you gonna do to change it?
Everything is staged, that's what's going on












AN ACRE OF LAND

My father left me an acre of land
Sing ivy, sing ivy
My father left me an acre of land
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

I ploughed it with my ram’s horn
Sing ivy, sing ivy
And sowed it all over with one pepper corn
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

Sing holly, go whistle and ivy
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

Sing ivy

I harrowed it with a team of rats
Sing ivy, sing ivy
And reaped it with a little toothcomb
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

I sent it home in a walnut shell
Sing ivy, sing ivy
And thashed it with a goose's quill
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

Sing holly, go whistle and ivy
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

Sing ivy

Sing holly, go whistle and ivy
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy

Sing ivy













ANGEL

Angel, an angel has come
Angel, an angel has come
I need so, I need someone
I need so, I need someone

He's ready, look now he's ready
He's ready, ready
All of this longing just isn't heaven
Look now it's ready, it's ready, ready
Just want to be seen

The big low, the big lonely
The big low, the big lonely
Is eating not only me
Is eating not only me

I'm ready, look now I'm ready, I'm ready, ready
I'm tired of this waiting, I'm tired of pity
Look now it's ready, it's ready, ready
Just want to be seen

Falling, falling free
Falling, falling

I'm ready, look now I'm ready, I'm ready, ready
I'm tired of this waiting, I'm tired of pity
Look now it's ready, it's ready, ready
Just want to be seen

I'm ready, I'm ready, ready












AS CLOSE AS THIS

With those eyes, you could be
In movies, in the lights
And nothing gets as close as this

With those eyes, just a breath
Can send me back to Bethlehem
Nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted

This world's alive, this room awake
With Tigers palms and rattlesnakes
And nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted

Every bird is on the wing
You fill the air, you're everything
Make me run screaming down the wind
Hopelessly in love again
And nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted
Nothing gets as close as this
I'm hopelessly devoted












BOWS & ARROWS

I saw your face
Whiter the purity
Then I saw savages
Standing before me

Bows and arrows
Tipped with poison
Make tenderness please
Stand by my pillow

I see evil
Everytime I dream
I see earth's poison
I hear violence sing
Even your touch
Once so pure
Comes fates cold hand
On my locked door

Won't you send those angels to watch over me?

I can't catch the bow
That this planet has thrown
I can't catch this bow
On my own
In come the arrows
Like a needle

You pierce my heart
And I taste poison
You pierce my soul
With bows and arrows

Won't you send those angels to watch over me?












DADDY

Daddy
Hold me
It seems so very dark tonight
And day

Daddy
I can't sleep
Need you to come and sing to me

That the stars
Up in the sky
Will shine down gently on the two of us tonight
And soon enough (Daddy)
It will be light (Baby)
We'll hold on tightly to each other, you and I
And I won't cry

Oh Daddy
Your baby
Is weak and calling out your name

My Daddy
Oh don't leave me
I beg you sing your song again

That the stars
Up in the sky
Will shine down gently on the two of us tonight
And soon enough (Daddy)
It will be light (Baby)
We'll hold on tightly to each other, you and I
And I won't cry (Baby)
Or call your name
And I won't
And I won't
And I won't
And I won't












DANCE

Wedding night, blade knife
Shining under orange light
See him running, caught under headlight
Don't care anyway
This scar has seen better days
Get it out of my way
That's where music playing

I'll get dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing

Maggie comes fleet foot, face full of black soot
Talking that the heat put plants in the bed but
Married on Wednesday, written on Thursday
Trial on Friday, hung herself on Saturday

I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

Time and time
I know time trickle by
Hung herself on washing line
This girl's drip dry

I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing
I'm here dancing












DANCE ON THE MOUNTAIN

Kalashnikovs were brought across
The mountain on the back of mules
They stored their weapons in a school
There's something wrong
There's something wrong
Something terrifying
Something terrifying

And now the slopes of dry grass Hold crouching boys, watch their fathers dance
Holding hands they follow the drums
Something terrifying is going on

The oldest dancer takes off his hat
To place a glass of water on his head
Bares his teeth, wakes the dead
This is their land they dance upon
Something terrifying is going on

Something terrifying
Something terrifying

The dancer falls to kneel before
The village elder, stains on his shirt
Rising up, growing strong

The boy children start to dance
It's terrifying
It's terrifying

In the distance people call
Like a river running home
In the distance people call
Like a river calling out
In the distance people call
In the oldest language known

It's terrifying













DARLING BE THERE

Take me over
Pale blue water
Take me under
Take me home

Darling be there
Bring me laughter
I'll be happy
Ever more

Bring me sunshine
Bring me love
No tomorrow
He'll fall upon

Darling be there
Bring me laughter
I'll be happy
Ever more

Darling be there
Bring me laughter
I'll be happy
Ever more












FALSE FIRE

Thirty days and thirty nights
Felt the lashes, could see the stripes
I know trouble and I know it's like
I won't suffer anymore
False fire

Every night while I'm asleep
I hear the spirits talk to me
I know trouble and I know it's like
But I won't suffer anymore
False fire

Well I've tried whisky, I've tried walking
But it don't stop the voices talking
I know trouble and I know it's like
But I won't suffer anymore
False fire
God talks to me

He said Your mothers love for your father
Was brief as the company of fours
When he questioned her about her love for him
She did her best to reassure

Swore she'd never love another
She must have bit her tongue in fear
Because another came along that night
Put poison in your fathers ear

This murderer was clever
He could charm any girl to his ??
Put your father in his coffin
And took your mother to his bed

I won't suffer no more
False fire
I won't suffer no more
False fire












GOODNIGHT

Here I am
Prairieland
Got it all, got
Gun in hand
I see
Dungarees
They're on my husband
They're on me

We have the stars
We have the trees
We'll have everything
We need to feed

I'll make babes
He'll make chairs
We'll sell them at
The county fair
We'll walk on
We'll walk tall
We'll dance once a week
The union hall

We'll have the stars
We'll have the trees
We'll have everything
We need to feed

Here I am
Prairieland
I got it all, got
Gun in hand
I'll sweep the porch
I dust his room
We swing together
On our chair at noon

We have the stars
We have the trees
We have everything
We need to feed

We have the stars
We have the trees
We have everything
We need to feed












GUILTY

Rules and regulation
Rules and regulation
Rules and regulation

There's a little figure
On the television
Scratching at the ground
By a pile of rags
Grainy little figures
On television screens
Weighing up the moment
Guilty, Guilty

What's he doing with that stick?
What's he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty?
Which one is guilty?

Power to the predator
The grim reaper
Greedy little suspects
Running for the shelter
Drones have come
Come in their thousands
Nobody asked us
If we wanted them

If we wanted them
If we wanted them

Back in the bunker
In the Operations Room
A bored soldier
Is eating his lunch
While drones in their thousands
Are unveiled in Texas
To roaring voices
But nobody asked us
If we wanted them

What's he doing with that stick?
What's he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty?
Which one is guilty?

Power to the predator
The grim reaper
Greedy little suspects
Running for the shelter
Drones have come
Come in their thousands
But nobody asked us
If we wanted them

Nobody asked us
If we wanted them












HARDER

Oh oh my my my
My man's up all night
Works me till I moan
Drives me out of my mind

Why it's so hard
Must be made out of cold steel
Why it's so hard
He's a man running my wheel

Just keep me burning
Just keeps me yearning
Put my whole body on fire
Burning whole body desire

Why it's so hard
Yeah taking me over
Why it's so hard
My cold steel soldier

Harder
Harder
Harder

Oh oh make me beg
Eats meat in my bed
Works me till I'm done
Mad dog can sure hunt

Why it's so hard
Must be made out of cold steel
Why it's so hard
C'mon Daddy drive my wheel

Harder
Harder
Harder

Why it's so hard
Money made out of cold steel
Why it's so hard
He's a turning my wheel

Harder
Harder
Harder
Yeah












HEAVEN

Everything's joy in heaven
And it's so good to live in this world of ours
Breathing the clean air through my lungs
Is an endless experience

Where I can go for a walk
Where I can go where I please
Where I can go for a walk
Where I can say what I please
Without being picked up by the police
Without being picked up by the police

If heaven is a place on earth
Then I must be on the moon
If heaven is a place on earth
Then I want to be getting there soon
If heaven is a place on earth
Then I must be on the moon
If heaven is a place on earth
Then I want to be getting there, getting there soon

Where I can release the tension
With the pushing of a button
Where I can release the tension
With the pushing of a button
Pushing of a button, pushing of a button

She picked the apple and gave it to him
Did she know what she was doing?
She picked the apple and gave it to him
Did she know what she was doing?













I'LL BE WAITING

They swept across the land
They did not leave a thing
They did not leave a person
A stone or a tree

They did not leave anything
All that's left is sand

I remember father
I remember him
Every minute I remember
Every moment
Now I hate everyone
Before I used to love

One day thorns shall grow
From their graves
When they return
Thorns will grow
Over their graves
I will be waiting

And when they return
I will be waiting
I will not leave a person
Standing

I will not leave anything
All I'll leave is sand

And then thorns shall grow
From their graves
When they return
Thorns shall grow
Over their graves
I will be waiting

When they return
Thorns shall grow
Over their graves
I will be waiting













KICK IT TO THE GROUND

Look at what I've found
A flower on his grave
Kick it to the ground
I've got no soul to save
Nature dealt me raw
Planted me with hate
Took my only love
To an early grave

See these eyes of envy
Bitterness it's true
I'm looking through your ashes
Looking right at you
Ten thousand years of loving
Could never set me free
From this web of hate I've woven
This chosen misery

Kick it to the ground
Kick it to the ground
Kick it to the ground

Carry scars of sorrow
But I have no regrets
And I will return tomorrow
I'm not finished hating yet
Look at what I've found
A flower on his grave
Kick it to the ground
Kick it to the ground
Kick it to the ground












LIVERPOOL TIDE

This Liverpool tide comforts my eyes
Stings like salty tears I've cried
In summer's glow I've found a hope
And another love to come and go

And oh
You never never know

And then the snow began to fall
Like birds it was against the wall
And then the sky began to crack
Like sticks it was upon my back

And oh
You never never know
When love
Will come or go

She breaks above Liverpool's tide
We walk along, against the sky
And when the sky begins to crack
Please hold me love, dont break my back

But oh
You never never know
When love
Will come or go
And oh
You never never know












LONG TIME COMING

In my coat of many colours
I'm waiting for my child
I'm waiting for my journey
I'm waiting for my prize

My lord
My lord

Jesus coming running
Ah sweet Jesus run and hide
Yeah I'm on my way to heaven
Ah sweet Jesus come inside

My lord
Long time coming

If I could call my mother
Say mother dry my eyes
If he'd left me in these colours
Then he ain't no god of mine

My lord
Long time coming












LOSING GROUND

Losing ground
Under my feet
There's a low rumbling
There's a crack in the street
It's just no good
It's just no good anymore
Everything I do
Has been done before

Yeah I found my voice
Yeah I got nothing to say
The whole thing started
Cause my mind has gone away
I used to get high
Now I just get lost
I used to bark at the moon
The first one I came across

Almost here
Almost gone

Almost here
Almost gone
Almost where
We belong

Better watch where you step
Better watch what you say
Speak the truth, baby
Believe in what you say
Believe in what you say
It's just no good anymore
It's just no good anymore

You bet I got trouble baby
You bet I got trouble baby
You bet I got trouble baby
You bet I got trouble baby












LYING IN THE SUN

I'm lying in the sun
I'm lying with my love
Into his blackened hair
I swear I saw dove

He is the one like god
Comes clear before my eyes
I'm kneeling on the ground
My love it tastes like wine

Come on and step inside
Come on and step inside

I'm lying in the sun
I'm lying with my love
Into his blackened hair
I swear I saw a dove












MANIAC

I need a man
To bring me love
To make me sing
I said I need a man
To make me feel
Like I'm a queen
I said to take me to the god heights
And kiss the devil on the mouth

I need a man
To make me moan
To make me bad
I need a man
To drive me slow
To drive me mad
I said to take me to the god heights
And kiss the devil on the mouth
To leave me, oh no no no no

I need a man
His heart is stone
His mother's bad
I need a man
His heart is stone
The deepest black
His heart is stone
His mother's bad
His heart is sick
The deepest black

MEMPHIS

You're breathing in my mouth
I'll take it, I'll take it for you
You wanna sing
Then sing it through me
You've got something left to say

Untimely, you were taking away
Unlikely, out if turn
When you still got so much to say
Well I'll write it, a song for you

But oh
What a way to go
So peaceful
You're smiling
Oh
What a way to go
I'm with you
I'm singing

You said there's a special place
And it's scaring the shit out of me
In Memphis on Valentines Day
You wrote it in a letter to me
Well I wish I had given you more time
To say thank you, my beautiful friend
But sometimes you gotta send it away
To bring it, to bring it back again

But oh
What a way to go
So peaceful
You're smiling
Oh
What a way to go
I'm with you
I'm singing

You'll always have open eyes
You'll always have a special place
In Memphis on Valentines Day
Die suddenly at a wonderful age
Though were you ready, were you ready to go?
When you still got so much to say
Somehow I know you're drowning slow
Receiving just everything

But oh
What a way to go
So peaceful
You're smiling
Oh
What a way to go
I'm know that
You're smiling

You're peaceful
You're smiling












MY OWN PRIVATE REVOLUTION

Fate has always, one might say
Driven me from place to place
Love on the stage, love on the stage
Up and carried me away

I have pursued my dream
All across the sky, all across the soil
And left my joyous town
When I was young, I watched it from my door
With the eyes of a child that seemed so clear

My own private revolution
My own private revolution
In my own private revolution
My own private revolution

Over the town, we fly out
Lovers embracing outside the golden gates
Love on the stage, love on the stage
Nor must we endure any separation

Over the town (revolution)
We fly out (my own private revolution)
Over the city (made my own private revolution) (revolving)
We fly out (my own private revolution) (revolving)

I have found, purity
Simplicity, inside the face of children
The voice of divinity
In my own private revolution

Over the town (my own private revolution)
Over the city (made my own private revolution) (revolving)
I will keep you, tempt me, must be heaven sent (my own private revolution) (revolving)
(with my own private revolution) (revolving)












NINA IN ECSTASY

I'm Nina
I feel love
I'll be safe
I'll be yours
Ever more
I'll be safe

Mama

Once Nina
Was a young girl
Now she's dead
Grew older
Grew colder and
Lost her way

Mama

Where's your mama gone?
Where's your mama gone?
Where's your mama gone?
Where's Your mama gone?
Far, far away
Far, far away












ONE TIME TOO MANY

He's seen me
So clearly
Come over
And get my number

He'd come round
He'd break down
Say baby
Don't ever leave me

He'd please me
He'd tease me
One time too
One time too many












REBECCA

I'm walking slowly, about the sea
Lover by lover, I pass them on the beach
The sun is shining, so bright today
Your voice is singing to me, across the waves

Ah

There's a young boy, makes eyes at me
Does he mouth my name, or is this just a dream?
I know inside that I can really love
The waves are glistening, like heaven from above

And here we'll stay
And sing forever of peace
I know we found love here by the sea

Could this be heaven, could this be peace
No more than sunshine and sand and waters deep
I'd always dreamed that life could be like this
Forever high and sigh from kiss to kiss

I know I've found love here by the sea












REELING

I wanna bathe in milk
Eat grapes
Robert DeNiro sit on my face
I can't sleep for thinking
Send my head a reeling

I wanna go to spain
Spend nights
Just sipping on nectar and ice
I can't sleep for thinking
Send my head a reeling

You bet that I'm Wayne ...
Eliminate a whole race
Wanna make the shit hit the fan
I can't sleep for thinking
Send my head a reeling

Even Aphrodite
She's got nothing on me
Take me to the moon
Take me to the moon

Dye my hair on stage
Call on my man Romeo
Come and climb my braids
Reeling
Reeling

Even Aphrodite
She'll have nothing on me

Reeling
Reeling

Take me to the moon
Take me to the moon
Fly me to the moon
Take me to the moon

Reeling
Reeling
Reeling
Reeling












SHAKER AAMER

"No water for three days.
I cannot sleep, or stay awake.

Four months hunger strike.
Am I dead, or am I alive?

With metal tubes we are force fed.
I honestly wish I was dead.

Strapped in the restraining chair.
Shaker Aamer, your friend."

In Camp 5, eleven years.
Never charged. Six years cleared.

"They took away my one note pad,
and then refused to give it back.

I can’t think straight, I write, then stop.
Your friend Shaker Aamer. Lost.

The guards just do what they’re told,
the doctors just do what they’re told.

Like an old car I’m rusting away.
Your friend, Shaker. Guantanamo Bay."

Don’t forget













66 PROMISES

66 promises
Fell from your lips
66 kisses
To rest on my child fingertips
66 lovers
To come till I tell
66 positions to
Take on this well-worn trail

66 magicians
Delivered the goods
Documented our marriage
For some silent film in Hollywood

Is it not what you thought it would be?
Was it not what you wanted it to be?
Was I not what you thought I would be?
Is it not what you wanted it to be?

60 mouths talking
But making no sense
Of life and of liberty
And the pursuit of happiness
Waiting for something
To smash a few holes
In the wall of good fortune
And the windows to a outer world

And 66 promises
And came in a kiss
Provided a meaning
Now I see how it really is

And it's not what I thought it would be?
And it's not what I wanted it to be?
And it's not what I thought it would be?
And it's not what I wanted it to be?












SOMEBODY'S DOWN, SOMEBODY'S NAME

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Saw it all happen, take place
At my window, I was looking down
I had no time, just time to say
Hold on, I'm coming
And he was lying there, it's all just too late

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Saw a fall and it all take place
At my window, I was looking down
See people, you can't be safe
Hold on, I'm coming
It's moved on now, and it all passed, and it's all too late

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Saw it all with my own eyes
Saw it all as clear as day
Clear as blue, blue fucking daylight
I say

Hold on
I'm coming
Somebody's down, somebody's name
Somebody's down, somebody's name
Hold
On
No
More
Hold on
No more
Hold on, I'm coming
Don't you tell me it's too late

Somebody's down, somebody's name
Pushing up daisies out of the ground
Thought I heard him call her name
By the time he hit the ground
Another day, another town
Another body on the ground
By the time the sky was grey
Nobody down, nobody came
I said
Oh lord
No more
Oh lord
No more
Oh lord
I'm coming
Don't you tell me it's too late












STONE

I don't wanna kiss you
I've already kissed you
And you said 'kiss me again'
And all the hills were rolling
And all the clouds unravelled
Looked down upon our shadows
Looked down upon our history
And then you came towards me

But my heart has turned to stone
What if my heart has gone
The world is weary, tired enough
I need help to hold this love

Was it that you told me
That you'd learnt to unfold me
To read my heart like a map
To throw it away and not bring it back
No-one in this house is sleeping
We lie awake just listening
For something human, something apart
To hear something other than our own hearts

My heart has turned to stone
What if my heart has gone
The world is weary, tired enough
I need help to hold this love

But the words just grind me down
When your tears just tire us out
When the words just grind us down












SWEETER THAN ANYTHING

In photographs
I've seen him laugh
Man overboard
Sun on his back

Summer was here
I remember it well
How he stood in the shade
How we both kissed and fell

How can this be?
There's nothing left here
How can this be?
There's nothing left here

So sad our
So sad our

So sad our
So sad our

Our memory

Now he talks in his sleep
Says I've never known peace
And I don't know him now
He's a stranger to me

How can this be?
There's nothing left here
How can this be?
There's nothing left here

We were
Never more than a dream
Brief as
Summer or spring
Sweeter than anything












THE BAY

The dead man came calling
My name and in need
Said "Betty, you're my girl
The strongest I've seen"

But oh my heart
Is heading to break
They say God forgives
But I can't learn the same

Said Betty she's fine
And Betty she's torn
And Betty makes love
Like woman at all

But oh my heart
Is heading to break
They say God forgives
But I can't learn the same

So I gave him my time
And I gave him my peace
And I gave him my heart
Gave it to keep

But oh my eyes
Making fools out of me
They say love is blindness (They say God forgives)
I could no longer see (But I can't learn the same)

Now I've no more to give
And I've no more to say
And the stars shine less bright now
Over this dead man's bay

But oh my heart
Is heading to break
They say God forgives
Is this love in the grave?
They say God forgives
Is this love in the grave?












THE BIG GUNS CALLED ME BACK AGAIN

Shadows lengthening
95 steps I'm taking
With every step I'm longing
For the luck to keep on living

The drum calls me back again
To my senses,
Filled with shame

I wish this night
Would never end
And on no-man's land
The sun would not rise again

There was laughing and I could not laugh
There was singing and I could not sing
The big guns called me back again

I hear voices singing
I hear the guns beginning
Far off, far away
I hear the guns again












THE CAMP

I saw childeren through a fence
Standing by blue canvas tents
I called to them, they moved like ghosts
Gliding silent and remote

A girl who's smile was a straight line
Looked like a creature out of time
A grey boy burnt by cigarettes
Pushed his scrared hands through the fence

And when I turned and tried to run
I saw ten thousand children
Were layed in lines wrapped in white sheets
A long and god forsaken street

Translation:
I wish I had wings to fly away, far away.
Meet smiley faces who never ask where I came from; not to ask about colour, race, or religion.
What difference does it make if we’re all humans?
No wars, no limits, no borders. Earth is everyone’s right.
I preyed an angel from the clouds would free the children, free them oh oh
I preyed and waited for an age, I waited but no angel came

I preyed an angel would come but no angel came
I preyed an angel would come and no angel came













THE FALLING

How to walk and where to run
How to walk and where to run
I see you kissing in other peoples arms
See you kissing in cheap bars
How to walk and where to run
How to walk and where to run
I see you kissing oblivious
Loving only your pain
I'm walking in oblivion
Walking in oblivion
I walk with a childs face
Remembering our days
Walking in oblivion
Walking in oblivion
Its gotta give, its gotta change
Today is the day

To all the men who I've loved
To all the men who I've loved
Something to free your angry hearts
I'm opening up my arms
To all the men whom I have loved
To all the men whom I have loved
Speak of the fear inside
It's time to change, there still is time
Do you remember walking?
Do you remember wtaching?
Our faces in the falling hearts of children
To all the men whom I have loved
To all the men whom I have loved
I dedicate my song saying
Today is the day
Today is the day

So we fall
And we fall again
And I have come
To tell you today
That I loved you
There's still time to say
We're falling hearts of our children

Through hating and loving
Through lucking and nothing
Through all manner of sorrows
That I have spoken
I open up my tender heart
I open up my tender heart
To all the men whom I have loved
All of those who I adored
But I remember something
I remember walking
When my heart was frozen
With that feeling
It's gotta give, it's gotta change
It's gotta give, it's gotta change
Turning round and round saying
Today is the day
Today is the day

So we fall
And we fall again
And I have come
To tell you today
That I loved you
There's still time to say
We're falling hearts of our children

Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling












THE FASTER I BREATHE, THE FURTHER I GO

I'm walking outside and
The headlights are blinding
I'm walking on Bleaker
The street of no cheer
The yellow cabs driving
I'm taking a ride and
The panic, the laughter, the stink of disaster

Disaster
Disaster
Disaster
The faster
The faster
I'm breathing
The further
I'm sinking
My head aches
My mouth dry
It feels like
It's war time
The heat and
The traffic
There's hell on
This planet
It's spinning
Much faster
Disaster
Disaster

Disaster
Disaster
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing

Let's walk now
On side roads
Let's walk in
The shadows

There's lovers
They're kissing
I see something missing
He's ready
To take her
I don't even
Rate her
Loving and loving
I hear
The flies buzzing

Faster
Faster
Faster
Faster
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing
I'm breathing

Keep walking
Keep walking












THE NIGHTINGALE

I have heard the sound of your call
I have chosen your path
I joined your caravan
We called you "The Nightingale"

I remember how excited we were
The best of life lay ahead for us
We marched on wrapped in your song
For you I gave my five-year-old son

I felt him behind me
I felt him helping me
"Every one of us will go to paradise"
He sang to the soldiers, day and night
We called him "The Nightingale"
Get ready, get ready, get ready

Heads on top of sticks, were angels around me
Heads on top of sticks became angels around me
Heads on top of sticks, cushed veins, angels around me
Heads on top of sticks were like angels around me











THE NORTHWOOD

I went up to the deep Northwood
Because of fire was in my hair
Thinking of her face, I left
The way she looked as I left her there
Her words still ring in my ears
Thrill is gone after all these years

I went out to the deep Northwood
Because of fire was in my hair
Thinking of her face, I left
The way she looked as I left her there
Her words still ring in my ears
The thrill is gone after all these years
Our love gets thrown away

He went out to the deep Northwood
Left a fire rage in my hair
Thinking of












THE PHONE SONG

If I could tell you anything
I would tell you something
If you, if you could miss it

That's the loop
It can be broken
That's the loop
It can be broken

If I could tell you anything
If you, if you could allow it
If you, if you could hear me
That's the change
Changes can happen
That's the loop
It can be broken
That's your heart
It can be open
That's the loop
It can be broken

That's the change
Changes can happen
That's the look
It can be broken
That's your heart
It can be open
That's the loop
It can be broken












30

Over my body the shadows played
It wasn't night and it wasn't day
Counting something, what have I found?
Thirty diamonds in my hand

Thirty miles, the world unfolds
Thirty miles, a pot of gold
I often think of America

I often dream of shooting a gun
Thirty years, I'm still a child
Looking for something in a smile

Thirty miles, the world unfolds
Thirty miles, a pot of gold
Listen here, in my song
Thirty miles won't be long

Thirty diamonds, birds of fire
Sparkle like the summer sky
Thirty diamonds, thirty miles
Looking for something in your smile

I'm looking for something in your smile
I'm looking for something in your smile












WAIT

I thought that if I waited, things might happen
There was no need to move myself, whats happening to me?
I sit around, and sit around, my legs are underneath me
Sit around, and dream around the things I'm going to be

But I've waited so long
Forgotten what i was waiting for
Waited six long years or more
Another minute won't make any difference, at all

Might even happen today, might even happen tomorrow
Everyone is waiting, everyone was sighting
Ways of moving slowly, but nobody is moving

But I've waited so long
Forgotten what i was waiting for
Waited six long years or more
Another minute won't make any difference, at all

Might even happen when you are looking out the window
Might even happen when you are walking down the stairs

All i seem to do is wait
Waiting for buses, waiting for trains
But my bus is always late
All i seem to do is wait
Spend my life anticipating things that will never happen

My god I've waited so long
Forgotten what i was waiting for
Waited six long years or more
Another minute won't make any difference, at all












WANG DANG DOODLE

Tell automatic Slim
Tell razor totin' Jim
Tell butcher knife toting Nanny
Tell fast talking fanny
We're gonna pitch a ball
Down to the union hall
We're gonna romp and trump till midnight
We're gonna fuss and fight till daylight
We're gonna get your wang dang doodle all night long

Tell cooda-crawling Ray
To tell abyssinia Ned
To tell old pistol Pete
To tell everybody he meets
Tonight we need no rest
We're gonna really throw a mess
We're gonna knock down all the windows
We're gonna kick down all the doors
We're gonna get your wang dang doodle all night long

All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long

Tell fats and washbone Sam
Everybody gonna jam
Tell shaking boxcar Joe
We got sawdust on the floor
Now tell Peggy and Colin Die
We're gonna have a heck of a time
Now when the fish scent fill the air
There'll be snuff juice everywhere
We're gonna get your wang dang doodle all night long

All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long












WHO THE FUCK? (4 TRACK VERSION)

Who the fuck do you think you are
Get out of my hair
who the fuck do you think you are
Comin' round here
who the fuck who the fuck
who the fuck do you think you are

Get your comb out of there
Combing out my hair

I'm not like other girls
You can't straighten my curls
I'm not like other girls
You can't straighten my curls
No!

Who the fuck you tryin' to be
Get your dog away from me!
What the fuck you thinking of
Sure ain't nothing to do with love

Who who who who
Fuck fuck fuck you

I'm free, you'll see
I'm me, you'll see

Who who who who












WHO WILL LOVE ME NOW?

In the forest, is a monster
It has done terrible things
So in the wood, it's hiding
And this is the song it sings

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will say to me
"You are my desire, I set you free?"

(Who will love me now?)

Who will forgive and make me live again?
Who will bring me back to the world again?

In the forest, is a monster
And it looks so very much like me
Will someone hear me singing?
Please save me, please rescue me

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will say to me
"You are my desire, I set you free?"

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will say to me
"You are my desire, I set you free?"

(Who will love me now?)
(Who will ever love me?)

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?












WITHIN A MONTH

But two months dead—nay, not so much, not two.
So excellent a king, that was to this
Hyperion to a satyr. So loving to my mother
That he might not beteem the winds of heaven
Visit her face too roughly.—Heaven and earth,
Must I remember? Why, she would hang on him
As if increase of appetite had grown
By what it fed on, and yet, within a month—
Let me not think on 't. Frailty, thy name is woman!—
A little month, or ere those shoes were old
With which she followed my poor father's body,
Like Niobe, all tears. Why she, even she—
O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason
Would have mourned longer!—married with my uncle,
My father's brother, but no more like my father
Than I to Hercules. Within a month,
Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears
Had left the flushing in her gallèd eyes,
She married. O most wicked speed, to post
With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!
It is not nor it cannot come to good,
But break, my heart, for I must hold my tongue
