RID OF ME

Tie yourself to me
No one else, no
You're not rid of me
You're not rid of me
Night and day I breathe
Hah hah ay hey

You're not rid of me
Yeah you're not rid of me
Yeah you're not rid of me
Yeah you're not rid of me
I beg you my darling
Don't leave me
I'm hurting

Lick my legs I'm on fire
Lick my legs of desire

I'll tie your legs
Keep you against my chest
Oh you're not rid of me
Yeah you're not rid of me
I'll make you lick my injuries
I'm gonna twist your head off, see

Till you say don't you wish you never never met her
Don't you don't you wish you never never met her
Don't you don't you wish you never never met her
Don't you don't you wish you never never met her

I beg you my darling
Don't leave me
I'm hurting
I've been lonely
Above everything
Above every day
I'm hurting

Lick my legs I'm on fire
Lick my legs of desire
Lick my legs I'm on fire
Lick my legs of desire

Yeah you're not rid of me
Yeah you're not rid of me
I'll make you lick my injuries
I'm gonna twist your head off, see

Till you say don't you wish you never never met her
Don't you don't you wish you never never met her
Don't you don't you wish you never never met her

Lick my legs of desire
Lick my legs I'm on fire
Lick my legs of desire













MISSED

He should not be here
He's just too big
In a cloud please come down
I'd put stars at your feet
Put Mars at your head

Show yourself to me
And I'd believe
I'd moan and I'd weep
Fall silent at your speak
I'd burst in
Full to the brim

Mary lost her head
And let it bleed
Came crying back to me
My son where's he been
Don't deny it
And don't you hide him
No I've missed him
No I've missed him
No I've missed him
No I've missed him

No words no sign
Mary say I'm not lying
How come he's so big
But good lord he's been hid
Good lord, where you hid

No I've missed him
No I've missed him
No I've missed him
No I've missed him












LEGS

Oh you're divine
Oh you're divine
Oh did I tell you you're divine
Oh did I ever when you were alive
Did it hurt when you bled
Oh lover boy, oh fever head
I'll bet you never thought I'd try
Your mouth, my love, was open wide
Singing oh you were going to be my life
Damn it
Oh you were going to be my life

Did you sing 'happy day'
Sing it
Sing it that time I went away
Got to ease my aching head
D'you know
No other way cut off your legs oh
Hey oh

Did you ever wish me dead
Oh lover boy, oh fever head
No you must no you must not go away
How will you ever walk again
And I, I might as well be dead
But I could kill you instead













RUB 'TIL IT BLEEDS

Speak I'm listening
Baby I'm your sweet thing
Believe what I'm saying
God's truth I'm not lying

I lie steady
Rest your head on me
I'll smooth it nicely
Rub it better 'till it bleeds
And you'll believe me
Caught out again
I'm calling you weak
Getting even

And I, I was joking
Sweet babe let me stroke it
Take, I give in
God's truth I'm not lying
And you'll believe me
I'm calling you weak
And I'll make it better
I'll rub 'till it bleeds

I'll rub it until it
I'll rub it until it
I'll rub it until it
I'll rub it until it












HOOK

I was blind I was lame
I was nothing till you came
You said babe make you sing
Make you feel like some queen
Said I'll take you Kathleen
To your home and mine
Lord he hooked me
Fish hook and line

And rolled in, barking mad
With a halo of deep black
Til my love made me gag
Called him Daddy take my hand
Said I'll take you Kathleen
To your home and mine
Good lord he hooked me
Fish hook and line

I'm lying and I'm lame
Left with nothing, but distain
Daddy, your maid, she can't sing
She can't feel, she's no queen
Said I'll take you Kathleen
To your home and mine
Lord he hooked me
Fish hook and line
Said I'll take you Kathleen
To your home and mine
Good lord he hooked me
Clean out of time












MAN-SIZE SEXTET

I'm coming up man-sized
Skinned alive
I want to fit
I've got to get
Man-sized
I'm heading on
Handsome

Got my girl and she's a wow

Man-size no need to shout
Can you hear can you hear me now
I'm man-sized
Man-sized

I'll measure time
I'll measure height
I'll calculate
My birthright
Good lord I'm big
I'm heading on
Man-sized
Got my leather boots on

Got my girl and she's a wow
I cast my iron knickers down
Man-sized no need to shout
Can you hear can you hear me now
My babe looking cool and neat
I'm pretty sure, good enough to eat
I'm man-sized no need to shout
Let it all let it all hang out
I'm man-size
Man-size
Man-size
Man-size

Silence my lady head
Get girl out of my head
Douse hair with gasoline
Set it light and set it free












HIGHWAY '61 REVISITED

Well, God said to Abraham "Kill me a son"
Abe said "Man, you must be putting me on"
God said "No"
Abe said "What?"
God said "You do what you wanna, but
Next time you see me coming you better run"
Abe said "Where do you want this killing done"
God said "Out on that Highway 61"

Well, Georgia Sam he had bloody nose
Welfare department would give him no clothes
He asked poor Howard "Where can I go"
Howard said "There's only one place I know"
Sam said "Quick man, tell me, I got to run"
Howard just pointed with his gun
And said "That way down on 61"

"Well, Mack the finger" said Louie the king
"I got 40 red white and blue shoestrings
And a thousand telephones that won't ring
You know I can't get rid of these things"
And he said "Now let me think a minute son"
Said "Yes that can be easily done
Just take them down on that 61"

That highway
Highway
Highway
Highway
Highway

Now the fifth daughter on the twelve night
Told first father that things weren't right
"My complexion" she said "is much to white"
He said "Come here and stare up into the light"
And said "Mmmm you're right, let me tell the second mother it's been done"
But the second mother with the seventh son
They were out on that highway 61

Now, the roving gambler was very bored
Trying to create the next world war
And he found a promoter, fell off the floor
And said "I've never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yep I think it can be easily done"
Highway
They just put some bleachers there out in the sun
And have it out on that 61

DRY

I caught it in the face
Coming around again
I thought it was worth waiting
You're caught up in my hair
Wet sides from time to time
But mostly I'm just dry
You leave me dry
You leave me dry
You leave me dry

You've come all this way
No hair out of place
You put it on the stage
You put right in my face
You leave me dry
You leave me dry
You leave me dry

A water well in sight
No water at my sides
I'm sucking on the well
I'm sucking 'till I'm white
But you leave me dry
You leave me dry
You leave me dry
You leave me dry
You leave me dry












ME-JANE

Damn your chest-beating just you stop your screaming
Splitting through my head and swinging from the ceiling
Move it over Tarzan can't you see I'm bleeding
I've called you by your first name good lord it's me-Jane

I'm running
It's me here
I'm leaving
Me-Jane
Me-Jane

Damn your chest-beating just you stop your screaming
All the time you're hunting swimming fishing breathing
Don't you ever stop and give me time to breathe in
I've called you by your first name good lord it's me-Jane

I'm running
It's me here
And I'm leaving
Me-Jane
And I'm trying
To make sense
You're screaming

Don't put it on me
Don't put it on me
Don't put it over me

Tarzan I'm pleading stop your fucking screaming
You've got me nailing walls and hanging from the ceiling
Oh move it over Tarzan can't you see I'm bleeding
Good lord you never stop

Don't put it on me
Don't put it on me
Don't put it on me
Don't put it on me
Jane












SNAKE

You snake
You crawled between my legs
Said want it all
It's yours you bet
I'll make you
Queen of everything
No need for god
No need for him
Just take my hand
You'll be my bride
Just take that fruit
Put it inside
You snake
You dog
You fake
You liar
I've burned my hands
I'm in the fire
Oh

You salty dog
You filthy liar
My heart it aches
I'm in the fire
You snake
I ain't untrue, believe
Put rotten fruit inside of me
Oh Adam please you must believe
That snake put it in front of me
That snake put it in front of me
In front of me












ECSTASY

Flying I'm flying
Hitting heavens high
I'm head on brake too low
Floating I'm floating
Hanging below the sea
I'm telling you, look at me in ecstasy
I'm in ecstasy

Singing I'm singing
Sounding hanging breathe
I'm begging you, look at me in ecstasy
I'm in ecstasy
Ecstasy
