CATHERINE WHEEL LYRICS

FERMENT

Texture
Safe on the shore I've been sleeping
Faced by the thoughts I've been keeping
To break down the door of my life
I need more texture
You need to give me more texture, texture, texture
You need to give me more texture
So deep inside I've been dreaming
In a space too confined, too concealing
It's a race to remind you of days I can't find
You need to give me more texture, texture, texture
You need to give me more
To break down the door of my life
I need more texture
You need to give me more
You need to give me more
Texture, texture, texture
You need to give me more texture, texture

I Want To Touch You
I always thought the way you talked was neat
And I dreamed that when you speak, you speak to me
But you're always out of reach
And I can't control my speech
And I'm scared that when we meet, I'll want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
You're the only soul inside that makes me shake
And the crazy senseless things you make me take
It would really make my day
If you'd only move away
'Cause I'm scared that if you stay, I'll want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
But you're always out of reach
And I can't control my speech
And I'm scared that when we meet
I'm fermenting, can't you see
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
I want to touch you
Touch you, touch you, touch you, touch you, touch you

Black Metallic
I've never seen you when you're smiling
It really gets under my skin
You say it's easy when it's faster
I still can't guess what you're after
It's the colour of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It's the colour of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
I think of you when you're sleeping
Of all the secrets that you're keeping
You can't stay all day under the covers
'Cause under there you'll discover
It's the colour of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It's the colour of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You're turning black metallic...
It's the colour of your skin
It's the colour of your skin...
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You're turning black metallic
It's the colour of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

Indigo Is Blue
Far from the place where I start
Is a message that you bring
Dashed aside and torn apart
Apologizing as I write
Sometimes I fade away
Sometimes I fade away
Sometimes I fade away
Sometimes...
The shame of never meaning what I say
Of looking 'round for something new
To chase the eagerness away
I use the energy to stay
Slowly falling as I fade
Indigo is blue
Indigo is blue
Sometimes I fade away
Sometimes I fade away
Sometimes I fade away
Sometimes I fade away
I fade away...

She's My Friend
I'm only waiting, 'cause she won't care
Shivers, shakes, and shallow
Hide the taste that's always there
I can say she makes no sense
My dreams are not drawn on much
'Cause she's my friend
'Cause she's my friend
'Cause she's my friend - oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh
'Cause she's my friend
I found you in a garden in my sleep
But I'm walking over gravel
Forming blisters on my feet
You give me all the reasons that make no sense
I only choose to be here
'Cause she's my friend
'Cause she's my friend
'Cause she's my friend - oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh
'Cause she's my friend
Oh, oh, oh, oh...
'Cause she's my friend - oh, oh, oh, oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh, oh, oh, oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh, oh, oh, oh
'Cause she's my friend - oh, oh, oh

Shallow
You're wasting time
Time to shake and throw down
But I can't fight
You are the one to say goodbye
And when you shout my mouth is dry
Only when you try
Is your shallow water running high
You know what's inside
So glad to see
You take my hand between your knees
And once inside
I'll only take the things that shine
You always said those things were mine
You only said goodbye
When your shallow water got too high
You know what's inside
Only when you try
Because your shallow water growing high
You know what's inside
You know what's inside
You know what's inside

Ferment
Sugar in the heart is burning
Sweet on lips and eyes are glowing
All the things you take are spinning 'round
Such a waste but you can't taste
What's coming down
All the time you save
You can turn this movie around
Needle stings and blisters breaking
Swinging moods and conscious fading
All the things you dream while spinning 'round
Always it seems to bring you, bring you down
All the time you save
You can turn this movie around
You can turn this movie around
Ferment
Ferment
Ferment
Ferment
Judy's always fading sugar voices when the sweetness is fermented
Ferment
Fermenting, fermenting, fermenting, oh
Light, your fading light
Ferment your life
Your fading light
Ferment your life
Fermenting, fermenting, fermenting...

Flower To Hide
So make it shine
No need to fade
I'll make it hard on you
I'll make it glow
No need to show you this time
I'll make it easy
And I know
The sunlight bleaches you
It colours everything you do
And I know
A flower's fading far too soon
So think of a time
It's something to cling to
Imagine a life
That never escapes you
Conceal it behind
The colour and perfume
A flower to hide
A violet surprise
And I know
The sunlight bleaches you
It colours everything you do
And I know
A flower's fading far too soon
And I know
The sunlight bleaches you
It colours everything you do
And I know
The sunlight bleaches you
A flower's fading far too soon

Tumbledown
Shout just to make it clear
So loud so as you don't hear
That I made no sound
The second time around
If all is turned around
So smooth just to show you care
You built a new mountain there
That I can tumble down
The very first time around
The very first time around
The very first time around
I let you see how high life could be
But you dropped me down
The very first time around
The very first time around
The very first time around
(are you in love with someone) ???
(let me tumble down) ???

Bill and Ben
You're saying far too much
Your thoughts that twist and touch
You're killing time in the dark
That's coming down
Ah that's coming down
Ah...
You are young and full of heart
You are real but you are torn apart
It's taking all my time
How many days to find
Just staring up at the sun
That's coming down
Ah that's coming down
Ah...
You are young and full of heart
You are light and you are dark
You are real but torn apart
You are losing
You are young and full of heart
You are light and you are dark
Looks like you but looks you may ???
You are real but you are torn apart
Ah ... Ah...

Salt
(Oh safe towards yourself)??? < --- THIS IS FOR THE WHOLE #& @*! SONG!
(She wants you with all your heart)

Between me always spinning ride
I slowly roll and seem to fly
The taste of salt and spinning ice
The taste of you it brings me higher
In this your shine
It's always time
It's always time
Oh we're only salt
Oh we're only salt
Oh we're only salt
It always felt like suicide
It always takes my life aside
To say I might, to say I will
The hardest part the heart is real
We miss your shine
It's only time
It's only time
It's only salt
It's only seas
It's only time
It's only time
I want to see myself in time
We miss your shine
It's only time
It's only time

Balloon
Flying, show me how it feels
As dreams grow sinking clouds that must be real
Losing a touch of what is mine
It's proving tough as steel and dull as life
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Gliding cuts you down and shakes your ground
I'm reeling from the height of silent sound
You know it always takes inside
As dreams go up the earth is lost in flight
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Come down, come down, come down...
Come down, come down, come down...
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon
Ba-ba-ba-ba-balloon

CHROME

Kill Rhythm
I wanna fire a gun - show me
I wanna be unseen - show me
A deep disguise
A deep disguise

Five years of nothing good
Still screaming
Shout this secrets out
Deep, distant and pure
Deep, distant and pure
Kill rhythm

Deep feelings, I'm keeping, still dreaming
Now, my secrets out
Deep, distant and pure

I wanna walk on air - show me
It's gonna feel so rare - show me
Don't wanna look suspicious or undone
But I really think this rhythm is the only one

Five years of nothing good
And still screaming
Shout, get this secret out
Deep, distant and pure

Deep feelings, I'm keeping, cold comfort,
Shout - this secrets out
Deep, distant and pure
Deep, distant and pure

I wanna fire the gun - show me
I wanna be unseen - show me
A deep disguise
To kill this guy

Finalize the rhythm
The rhythm

Deep feelings I'm seeking, kill rhythm
Shout this secrets out
Deep, distant and pure
Deep, distant and pure

I Confess
Oh my blue-eyed boy
Built something to destroy
Is it getting high?
High
Oh you cheeky face
Shirt open to the waist
Now it's really getting cold

One more paranoia, I don't want another
Oh yes I confess, I don't want another

Yes you handsome man
Wicked boy, you sycophant
Are you ready to feel?
Deep stress, nothing new
Anxiety to use
Coming through the door

One more paranoia, I don't want another
Oh yes I confess, I don't want another

Ah... Ah...
Taken many drugs, popped so many pills
Gasp at my adventures, marvel at my thrills
One more paranoia, I don't want another
Oh yes I confess, I don't want another
One more poison thought, don't want another
Yes, yes I confess, I don't want another

Crank
Love my superstitious games
Running circles round my brain when I'm left smiling

I love to steal this living steam
My head in someone's dream
I'm tired of sleeping

Call me crank, my idea
Crank, so super
Crank, my conscience clear

I build my canopy of steel
It fulfills my sense of real
A chrome protection

Call me crank, my idea
Crank, so super
Crank, my conscience clear
It's clear

In this small partition, like a prison
Explode time bomb
If you know where I come from

You call me crank, my idea
Crank, so super
Crank, my conscience clear
Please call me crank, it's what I need
Crank, my mind in seed
Crank, my dream complete

Lay down, lay down, lay down

Broken Head
Step inside my head
See how much I see
Feel how much I feel
Just this once I will...
Show you something good
A planet with no roof
The leading edge of truth
It's waiting up there

Broken head spilling air what an atmosphere
I really feel such a thrill
Broken mind come alive, imagination shines
I really feel such a thrill ooh ooh

A post euphoric grin
An astronaut I've been
Astronomic feelings
A face like luna - ah

Broken head spilling air what an atmosphere
I really feel such a thrill
Broken mind come alive my invention shines
I really feel such a thrill ooh ooh

Come into the big sleep
Donnez moi la grande surprise
Keep keep the vision clear
Come close and bring it near, it's the mother, the mother...

Broken head spilling air what an atmosphere
I really feel such a thrill
Broken mind come alive my invention shines
I really feel such a thrill ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Aah aah

Pain
Before the summer fell I already knew
She said I was more than dead
I already knew

Pain, here it comes again
Pain, I just can't take this anymore
Pain, here it comes again
Pain, a knife behind the eyes, a vicious size
Again

I miss my best friend, a growing fear
A lot to sacrifice
Or draw to an end

Pain, here it comes again
Pain, I just can't take this anymore
Pain, here it comes again
Pain, a knife behind the eyes, a vicious size
Again, again, again, again, again, again

Pain, here it comes again
Pain, I just can't take this anymore
Pain, here it comes again
Pain, a knife behind the eyes
A vicious, vicious, vicious pain
Pain, here it comes
Pain, here it comes
Pain, here it comes

Strange Fruit
I've been inside this fruit when juices flow
But the taste is just a memory you hold
There is no real decay
No feeling of the skin
No juice

Strange fruit, strange fruit, strange fruit
It never lets that sun out
Strange fruit

This is sweet the soul the flesh I wish
It's the liquid that I miss
There is no real decay
The flesh is barely bruised
It's no use

Strange fruit, strange fruit
Sonic juice inside my head
This fever is so concentrated
Oh no what a shame...

Climb the tree and shake this passion down
But this fruit won't even kiss the ground
There is no real decay
The flesh is barely grazed
There's no way

Strange fruit, strange fruit, strange fruit

Chrome
Can't you accept this flower hasn't grown?
Kick away the petals and come home
This is all she said
But there's something in me cold within me
A beast inside me, bold inside me

I find myself in chains
I find myself in chains

But if I had some time
I'd use it this time
Fix myself I will, I hope it's this time
And if I could only see the subtle things you see
I'd think myself so brave in victory

Step inside everything, everything's all clear
Maybe I could find some inspiration here
Because it's time to fix this thing
It's time to fix this thing

But if I had some time
I hope it's this time
Escape to somewhere beautiful
Then maybe I could really see the subtle things you see
I'd consider it such rare and privileged company

No, no, no, no
But never again, never again, never again
I'm just too close to winning
And I find myself in chains
And it's time to fix this thing

'Cos if I had some time
I'd use it this time
Escape to something beautiful
'Cos underneath the steel and rust and oil and shit
There's chrome just shining chrome

A mirror finish of my own

Alive inside this chrome, home, home, home

The Nude
You're making me doubt myself
This feeling I know so well
Visions of naked greed
Are visions I just don't need

Far deep, phantom seeking, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart
Far from living, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart

The texture of moistened skin
All over this skin I've been
Skin that's been angel stretched
No muscle or excess flesh

Far deep, phantom seeking, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart
Far from living, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart

You're making me doubt myself
This feeling I know so well
Feeling of naked lust
This feeling I love so much

Far deep, phantom seeking oh you are
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart
Phantom breathing oh you are
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart

Upon the wall, the life is drawn
The love is lost, the truth will fall
The sinking ship, the sinking soul
The final fear
The picture on the wall

URSA Major Space Station
There's no doubt
Of the future in my head
It's all worked out
I'd hate it to go left unsaid

I'd follow you through time
'Til it's not worth living
And if somewhere there's a sign
That I just don't know
Then I just won't show you

I'll make it easy
All the time
Shake it out

There's no doubt
of the purpose in my mind
It's all worked out
I'll make it easier to find

I'd follow you through time
'Til it's not worth living
And if somewhere there's a sign
That I just don't know
Then I just won't show you

I'll make it easy
All the time
Shake it out
It's no crime
From the middle
From the sides
Shake it out
Shake it out

Ahs
Ahs

Let's take a rocket ship to Mars
And anchor off the satellite for lonely hearts
Such a special place
In outer space...

Fripp
There's a shark shaped fin
In the water of my dreams
An alligator screams from the depths there
I'd swim with you there
I'd swim with you there, yeah yeah

In the house that I use
There's a psycho on the loose
He's playing with the fuse of a bomb there
I could live with you there
I could live with you there

Bye bye long day
I need to sleep so much
You shine on me
Too much is not enough

On the sheets and pillow case
In my bed for heaven's sake
The devil's dancing until late in my head there
But I could sleep with you there
I could sleep with you there

Always
Always

Bye bye long day I need to sleep so much
Nineteen hours straight
Too much is not enough
Too much is not enough
Too much is not enough
Too much is not enough

Too much is not enough
Undivide your love
Undivide your love

Half Life
So high it's hurting
So wide the line is drawn
I've gotta learn to stop myself from falling
Down so low

So don't die it's over
I've got a life, I've got a place to grow
I've gotta learn to stop myself from falling
Down so low

There's still time to grow
You know you know
It's so hard to think clearly

Clear
So clear
I've gotta learn to stop myself from falling
Down so low

There's no time to build
It's no horror film
It's so hard to think clearly

Ah
Ah
Ah
Ah - ooh

There's still time to grow
You know, you know
It's so hard to think clearly

Ah... Ah... Ah... Ah... Ah...

Show Me Mary
Mary sticks her tongue out, it's a sign
Two fingers is a magical state
And she promised me she'd show me why
I don't think I can wait

Hey, hey, hey, hey, show me Mary
How does it go? Show me Mary
Show me Mary

This flower is a living cusp, but how it kills
Infectious beyond all that's fair
And if I succumbed while standing here
Would you really care?

How does it work? Show me Mary
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, show me Mary
Show me Mary

Mary took a dive when it suited her most
No surprise you are sucked you construct for yourself
Or are you really someone else?
Breezing through somebody's hell
Purifying as you go

No, no, no, no, show me Mary
Where have you been? Show me Mary
Show me Mary
Show me Mary
Show me Mary
Show me Mary
Show me Mary
Show me Mary

HAPPY DAYS

God Inside My Head
I've been fed all my life
Had stories read to hypnotise
I bang my head against the wall

Deep inside my head I've found
Some signs of life a mushroom cloud

I teach I read the greed, Oh this is the mouth I feed
With love! With love! So don't be accusing me
I've got God inside my head
Got God inside my head

Bless my soul, one false hope take some wisdom there
This punk's no dope and I feel the need to share

Jesus in my memory
Just don't remind me
Don't remind me
Don't remind me

That I teach I reach the greed, Oh this is the mouth I feed
And I refuse to believe, there's a cynical bone in me
I've got God inside my head
God God inside my head
God God inside my head, my head, my head

If I don't wanna die
If I don't wanna die
I don't wanna die

Waydown
I breed deep in my a beautiful thing
And I need energy for my beautiful thing
But pain for days has stayed with me
Expect to see some change in me
From happy to frown

I'm on my way down
I'm on my way down
I'm on my way down
I'm on my way down

I know noisy noisy please this fool
So hear my plan and understand why I feel so cruel
Take this huge expanse of sound
And wrap it in these rags I found
And in true style

I'm on my way down

Oh this is worth the cost she said
This is worth every penny she said
And I think I can see through everything
This is how I feel This is how I feel This is how I feel

I'm on my way down
I'm on my way down

Little Muscle
Drove to my lover, tried to discover
If she was my friend right to the end
Don't know what caused her to pretend
So I wrote a long letter on one inch of paper
Sprinkled with tears and surrounded by love
I'm gonna lick the page now with my tongue

Little muscle, little muscle
Wriggle wriggle lips of lizards
Like a lizard little muscle wriggling
My aching tongue
My aching tongue
My aching tongue
Little muscle, little muscle

Little muscle, little muscle
Oh boy, Oh boy you're so much trouble
A wedge a wedge a wedge a wedge
Between my lips

Little muscle, little muscle
Wriggle wriggle lips of lizards
Like a lizard what have you done?
My aching tongue
My aching tongue my aching tongue
Little muscle, little muscle

Heal
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

I can climb a tree and push up through the leaves 'cos
Only when I try am I happier to see
My head's in some kind of space where boyhood used to be
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

But it's all a lie and I've never felt so sad
There's a streak of melancholy running down my back
And there's a great mistrust that borders round the man
I call it strange from a boy who never left his head
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

And everyone needs someone to live by
Everyone needs someone to live by

But it's all a lie, it's a lie to make you beg
For something more for something better than you've had
And I wish I knew
I wish I knew how to change
'Cos everyone needs someone to live by
Everyone needs someone
Everyone needs someone to live by
Everyone needs someone
Everyone needs someone
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

Empty Head
Of all the things a popular song can bring
A permanent picture of hope is what I hate the most
But now I'm happy when I'm told to discover
There is no other

Just this is beautiful
This is beautiful
It's oh so fanciful
Empty head feels good
Empty head feels good, yeah

Just don't be too surprised if this permanent paradise
Explodes some day in a permanent picture of pain
Empty head feels good
Empty head feels good
Empty head feels good, yeah

But a permanent picture of love...(now there's a thing)
You feel you sing for something real
I can tell you it's no deal so don't bother

Whenever the fools surround me
It's never enough to tell me
This is beautiful
This is beautiful
It's oh so fanciful
Empty head feels good
Empty head feels good
Empty head feels good, yeah

Receive

When I destroy what I receive

It's one of many reasons
Reasons

Eat My Dust You Insensitive Fuck
I think I have the best of me
Inside my head
No one else competes with me
I think I'm great
Got spirit tucked away inside

I know the ghosts of angel notes to kiss
Everything I sing is part of this
Got honey brushed across my lips

I know, I know, I know, I know

If you can call this luck
If you can call this luck
If you can miss this much

Eat my dust you insensitive fuck
Eat my dust you insensitive fuck
Eat my dust

Shocking
Old style in it seems they've brought you everything
There's an old style in of days when we were all thirteen
Yeah these pictures of love are a testament to the memories

When I think of you it's shocking
Oooh it's shocking
Oooh

Now it's "Oh my god this time he crushed some aspirin"
Dissolved in love he always made the best of it!
Yeah he spilled it all to The Sun months before punk had
Taken off
He had the pictures to prove
What a soaraway dude is guilty of

When I think of you it's shocking
Oooh it's shocking Oooh it's shocking

But won't you listen to me, why can't you believe
That you're breaking my heart
And these moments were part of our lives
And it destroys me to see you destroy them
Every time

When I think of you it's shocking
Oooh it's shocking Oooh it's shocking

So you wanna know what's my crime?
Love, I'm guilty every time
Love, this love, I'm guilty every time
Love, this love, I'm guilty every time
Love this love, Love this love
It's shocking

Love Tips Up
Don't feel sad don't feel blue
It's supposed to be
All I feel comes back off you
And I'm so happy

'Cos I feel I'm at 45 degrees
That's when love tips up for me
And keep it understood the elevations good
And love tips up for me

Please let me kiss your peculiar lips
For some sympathy
Though I've always maintained
That you've always been stranger than me
Is that the way it's meant to be?

I'm at 45 degrees
And that's when love tips up for me
So keep it understood the elevations good
And love tips up for me
Yeah don't it make you feel
Yeah don't it make you feel
Yeah don't it make you feel
High

'Cos I feel I'm at 45 degrees
That's when love tips up for me
When all of this is done it's dizzy I've become
And love tips up for me
Yeah for me

Judy Staring At The Sun
Smacked up again behind the door
Begging please give me some more
A vein that's open for the day
Feel the pulse beneath the skin
And smiling as it all begins
Oh where have you been?

Judy's staring at the sun
Judy's staring at the sun
Judy's fantasy has come

So amplify this little one
She's a volume freak
She hears as much as she can see
And what she sees she can't believe
It's just what Judy needs a moment of release
To give her peace peace peace

Judy's starting at the sun
Judy's day passed out of sight
Judy will be suffering tonight
She's suffering

She passed by and said good-bye to him
And in a rare and lucid state
She said my days are unoriginal
I wanna fade fade fade
She's suffering

Judy's staring at the sun
Judy's day passed out of sight
Judy will be suffering tonight

Hole
Deep down this boy can feel too much
His flesh is weak he needs the satin crown
Got balls intact despite the fact
He'll curse his luck, his painful guts
Screwed up the path he followed

Always the pretty songs for us to sing along and bust up
This is the worst news I have heard alone and disturbed now
He's divine this time
When will you listen?
No fake what does it take when will you listen

When will you learn?
You fuss you fight I don't think it's right
That you pushed this man so deep down this hole
Come back
Come back

Always the pretty songs for us to sing along and get fucked up
This is the worst news I have heard alone and disturbed now
He's divine this time
When will you listen?
No fake what does it take when will you listen

Fizzy Love
What you do to me
Leave puddles at my feet
Won't it make me ill
The way you make me feel
Can't remember when
My senses were so bent
Tell me your impressed
With my obsessiveness
What am I supposed to do

Bubbles in my
Fizzy love for you
Fizzy love for you
Fizzy love for you, you

Won't you let me kiss

You're starving me of this
You really have the flair
To suffocate me there
For my survival I conclude
When I need air it's all I use

My Fizzy love for you
Fizzy love for you
Fizzy love for you

I lose the energy to think
I don't eat food and all I think
Is Fizzy love for you
My fizzy
My fizzy love for you

Kill My Soul
Call me romantic
But I'm frantically fucked up
I had a picture
Sentimentally flawed
Pretty hard to ignore

In my soul
You killed my soul
Soul
You killed my soul

Fatally wounded
And in peacetime Oh Oh
Leaving me rigid
That's what I find so
Hard hard hard to forgive

In my soul
You killed my soul
Pretty hard to forgive
You killed my soul
Soul
You killed my soul

Oh
Call me romantic
But I'm disappointed

La La La La...

LIKE CATS AND DOGS

Heal 2
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

I can climb a tree and push up through the leaves 'cos
Only when I try am I happier to see
My head's in some kind of space
Where boyhood used to be
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

But it's all a lie and I've never felt so sad
There's a streak of melancholy
Running down my back
And there's a great mistrust
That borders round the man
I call it strange from a boy who never left his head
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

And everyone needs someone to live
Everyone needs someone to live by

But it's all a lie, it's a lie to make you beg
For something more
For something better than you've had
And I wish I knew
I wish I knew how to change
'Cos everyone needs someone to live by
Everyone needs someone
Everyone needs someone to live by
Everyone needs someone
Everyone needs someone
It's how high you are and the time it takes to heal

Wish You Were Here Words and music by Pink Floyd
So, so you think you can tell heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl, year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found? The same old fears
Wish you were here.

Mouthful of Air
Deeper and deeper I go
Your hearts drowning I know
All my intentions are clear
I need to rescue my dear

So I dive don't despair
Coming down with a mouthful of air
To share

To swim with the shellfish I wish
And suck with the sea queen I wish
Mussels and coral are here
I need to rescue my dear

So I dive don't despair
In the gloom just assume that I care
Coming down with a mouthful of air
To share

I'll feed you much better

Car
If I touch you will you break?
If I touch you will you take my fears away?
And I can hardly wait for you
And I can hear the moving mind
I've been sitting here for years to find
I'll steal myself a car
A Ferrari or a Jaguar
And drive it at a crazy speed
Straight over the cliff and into the sea

I can hardly wait for you
I can hear, the moving mind
I've been sitting here for years to find
I've been sitting here for years to find
Such bad thoughts
I'll steal myself a car
Ferrari or a Jaguar
And drive it at a crazy speed
Straight over the cliff and into the sea
And maybe I'll be happy, maybe I'll be happy
And if that was guaranteed
I'd do it today, right now, just this once today
I can hardly wait for you
I've been sitting here for years for you

Girl Stand Still
All I know it's not my turn to fear
This much I know I watch the girl stand still
This much I know a warning whispered in your ear
All I know it's not my turn to fear

There's a village far below
I'm passing by so come on, come out to play
Ask your mother, ask your mother
And tell her why the time I called
And the reason is I love you
It justifies it all

There's a secret I've been keeping
Pushed aside and left behind
Back again like bad religion
Oh we love to lose our minds
Oh we love to lose our minds
Oh we love to lose our minds

Saccharine
You're not real you're reeling
You're not seen you're stealing
You're not strong you're feeling
You're not sweet you're saccharine
You're not sweet you're saccharine

Backwards Guitar
I'm riding in your car, a hundred miles an hour - ooh
Grin from ear to ear, I'm feeling happy here - ooh
I don't wanna park tonight, pass by those traffic lights
It's such a simple plan, a trip in your sedan - ooh
Cruising to explore and really nothing more - ooh
Hill climb for morning views, sun-up in your saloon

Oh lets go further down the road
Don't ask me what it is or where to go
Because I don't know - I don't know
I just wonder if you feel desire?

I'm riding in your car, a good friend you are - ooh
So take me where I please see Los Angeles
A bad idea to try you look so horrified

And I didn't think that you could tell
I'm a psycho speeding road machine from hell
You know me so well
It's just a simple trip by car
A sleeping passenger you are

But boy what a picture of relief
That your skin is just as smooth and just as sweet
And it's warm beyond belief
And I wonder if you feel desire?

Tongue Twisted
Tongue tied twisted, steal time to stay
Real song drifted keeps the thorn inside
Tongue tied twisted twist around and creep
Tongue tied twisted keeps the leaf

What are you gonna feel? What are you gonna feel?
Will it fall will it drop, I despise the time
Thought I love to feel the tongue twisted
So pleased to find

Beneath the grass this time, beneath the grass
I know this fear will last
I know this fear will last
I know this fear will last
I know this fear will reach beneath the gutter
The restless I know I know I know

But I love to feel the tongue twisted

These Four Walls
Tell yourself how I love
I could go, here's the door
Dust on bell won't ring
Destination calls
Drive to me and bring
Disappointment falls
And I will breathe to live bite the lip

To the one for who I feel
Here's some time we could kill
Tush to time don't go, we could use it all
Pawn the diamond ring
No space for you to cling

In these four walls I give it all
Chicken come over here deep inside
If I could have a wish this distance would be missed
Spinning like a wheel ooh
And the only thing to fear if the distance disappears
There'd be nothing left to say, hey

And I will breathe to live bite the lip
The dust of life is mixed drifting like a mist
All the night is clear desperations near

I left my heart to roam I should go home
But we could call for more ooh
It's the distance I can't bear
There's no more hurt to fear
There's no more time to say, hey
In these four walls I give it all
Chicken come over here deep inside

High Heels
No more noise this year
I'll wear my highest heels
What am I to do?
I'm a bad decision maker

Is it still confused
I know the truth
Beneath this tree, it blooms
I'm a hopeless case, it multiplies
I can cut your teeth this time
I know, this time, don't criticize

All I have to do, is get inside of you
I'll wear my highest heels
And I know how it feels

Is it still confused
I know the truth
Beneath this tree, it blooms
I'm a hopeless case, it multiplies
Can I cut your teeth this time?
I know, this time, don't criticize
Don't criticize, don't criticize

Harder Than I Am
At the top of the stairs - you shove
And going down with a smile - you shove
I'll teach you to turn away
I'll teach you to turn away

As you fall in the crowd - you shove
Some attention to steal - you will
I'll teach you to turn away
I'll teach you to turn away
These are not the words you use
These are just the words to show

Oh she's letting go
But you're harder than I am
Oh she's letting go
Though you're harder than I am

So here's a reason to pray - oh god
It's really something I'm proud of
St. Christopher would stay
I'll teach you to turn away
These are not the words you use
These are just the words to show

Oh she's letting go, but you're harder than I am
Oh she's letting go, but you're harder than I am
Oh she's letting go, but you're harder than I am

These are not the words you use
These are just the words to show

Oh she's letting go, but you're harder than I am
Oh she's letting go, but you're harder than I am
Oh she's letting go, but you're harder than I am

La La LaLa La
Jesus what a state to be in
Something's wrong I don't know what I'm fearing
A screaming sign toward the christening
Wrap your arms protection I've been missing

It's something close, something near
I don't know what I really fear
Sometimes came, sometimes went
I don't know why this mood was sent

Jesus what a pit to be in
Something's wrong a gruesome pain I'm feeling
Step inside the dreams I follow
Wrap my arms protection seems so hollow

Nothing's good, nothing's dear
Don't know what I really fear
I can move if I try
It goes deeper every time

La la lala la, la la lala la la

Something Strange

All that I've come to feeling
Is a plastic wig (?)
All that is grown
Is a plastic doll
Days so excited
All is just the things
All, All
Come down and see us win
Keepers caught in clear (?)
All those good times
Is it much too fast
Deep inside the train
So imagination takes you there
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
And it's something strange
Strange

Angelo Nero
This (female? fever? feeling?) always locked away inside
'Cos I don't think I've ever felt so hypnotized
If I'm scared
I'm just fine

And did you care
With your nose stuck in the air
That the messages were clear

Angelo Nero you're here

And it's a big decision down by the corn field
Yeah he's just poison - oh the mother's milk
And only for the reason that was how he felt

And he did he care
That his arrogance was clear
And the messages were clear

Angelo Nero you're here
Angelo Nero you're here

Had some injustice done
Had some injustice done and it's a deep incision
In the reach of the circumsize
A single penetration enough to satisfy
A little consolation for the ripped insides

And the liquid moved as she opened up the scar
A deep, richer red, just like a racing car
Such a sight to see
A real emergency

Angelo Nero you're here
Angelo Nero you're here
Angelo Nero you're here
Angelo Nero you're here

The Spirit of Radio Words and music by Rush

One likes to believe in the freedom of music
Begin the day with a friendly voice
A companion, unobtrusive
Plays that song that's so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood

Off on your way
Hit the open road
There is magic at your fingers
And the music that ever lingers
Undemanding contact
In your happy solitude

Invisible airwaves crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle with the energy
Emotional feedback on a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond life that's almost free

All this machinery is making modern music
Can still be open-hearted
Not so coldly charted
It's really just a question of your honesty
Yeah your honesty

One likes to believe in the freedom of music
But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity

Invisible airwaves crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle with the energy
Emotional feedback on a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond life that's almost free
And the words of the profits are written on the studio walls, concert hall
Echoes with the sounds of salesmen

ADAM AND EVE

Intro
I know how to make you happy
Take away all your bad habits
Take away all your bullshit
And chip away your porcelain
Your veneer is wearing thin
And your blue eyes are shamefully gotten
Your good news is shamefully gotten
Your confessions are shamefully gotten
Shed your skin
Let's get started
Let's get started

Future Boy
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

With you up there on the screen
I'd be your future boy
My big eyed bird in the movies
I'd be your future boy
'Cos if that is what you need
A cinematic boy like me
Who'll come along and set you free
Don't fear superboy is here
And it feels good to me

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

As the wisdom runs
A boy should know his limitations
But I've talked myself through less
Can I be your future pest
'Cos if that is what you need
A sycophantic boy like me
Who'll tell you things
You really don't need
Oh joy I'm your boy
And it feels good to me
Don't fear superboy is here
And it feels good to me

Delicious
I must have been crazy
I think I was being brave
I think I was Bruce Lee
I might have been Michael Caine
So give me something to cover my eyes
Weakness and deep stress what am I?
"A B C D you're in the belly of me"

You eat you sleep you breathe
Something delicious

You spill you grip you squeeze
Something delicious
You peel you strip you bleed
Something delicious
Delicious

I must be confused
Oh it's so typical
Some fleshy temptation
And the sweetness only improves
So give me something to cover my eyes
Ooh weakness and distress what am I?
"Tree to fruit apple to seed
You are the A in Adam and Eve"

You eat you sleep you breathe
Something delicious

You spill you grip you squeeze
Something delicious
You peel you strip you bleed
Something delicious
Delicious
Something delicious

Give all your hope to me
Make all your love to me

You eat you sleep you breathe
Something delicious
You spill you grip you squeeze
Something delicious
You say you think you are
Something delicious
Something delicious
Something delicious
You say you think you hold
Something delicious

So save some of your hope for me

Broken Nose
Hey you you with the broken nose
You've been a fighter for too long
Hey you stuck in the same old clothes
You've been in Pumas for too long

And all our friends are gone
And all our friend are gone
Gone somewhere they don't know where to

Hey you you with the serpent smile
You've been a creature for too long
Hey you stuck in that same old style
You've been in fashion for too long

And all our friends are gone
And all our friend are gone
Gone somewhere they don't know where to

Hey you you with the seasoned lips
They've been in service for too long
Hey you
You with the same old line in bullshit
You've been in business for too long

And all our friends are gone
And all our friend are gone
Gone somewhere they don't know
Gone somewhere they don't know where to

Hey you you with the broken chain
No one gives a crap for you
Hey you
You with your public displays of pain
You've been painful for too long

And all our friends are gone
And all our friend are gone
Gone somewhere they don't know
Gone somewhere they don't know where to

Hey hey hey hey hey you

Phantom of the American Mother
Watch this picture blow
It makes you wonder
Bless this broken low
It takes time to explain to you

That underneath your skin is mother dear
And if you paint your face again you'll disappear
How you gonna feel?
If Superman and Sonic Youth are fairy tales
It's time to face the truth
You'll throw your life away
A woman dressed as Baby Jane

Like a phantom of the American mother
It's here again
Like a phantom of the American mother

And all that you're concealing
Are the things that are good in you
And you do
And you're still abandoning the news
Now there's a sinking look in your eyes
Like black holes in the sky

And every time you moved I realized
That everything in you was hypnotized
How you gonna feel?
If Superman and Sonic Youth are fairy tales
It's time to face the truth
You walked the hall of shame
A woman dressed as Baby Jane

Like a phantom of the American mother
It's here again
Like a phantom of the American mother

So here it is you needed proof
There's no rock n' roll parade for you
It's time to face the truth

Like a phantom of the American mother
It's here again
Like a phantom of the American mother
The American mother
And it's here again
Like a phantom of the American mother
Like a phantom of
Like a phantom of
The American mother

Ma Solituda
Sleep don't weep
Throw your arms together
Slide don't lie
We always stick together

Start the day in a cold December way
See what's new
It's December through and through

Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
And I fell down

Sleep don't weep
Throw your arms together
Slide don't lie
We always stick together

Start the day in a cold December way
End this day in a stream of
Celebration

Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
And I fell down

I fell down
December never ends

Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
Ma Solituda
Sinks confusion
And I fell down

Fell down

Satellite
Feeling only left him bleeding
For a whole number of reasons
He never discovered
But soon he would be riding his wave
Coast to coast oh his life was rosy and pink
Fluffy in the middle a constant grin
Anyone would think so

But see that body shaking
See that body racing
Feel that body baking from inside
The boy's a satellite
He won't be home tonight

And we crown ourselves again
There's been no change
Since you and I were young
When we burned ourselves again
The spaceship days
When you and I were young
When you and I were young were young

Coast to coast the scene was for Gene
Oh his life was mostly blue
And far more dangerous than he ever knew
But I didn't see the need to say so

But see that body shaking
See that body racing
Same old painful aching bones inside
The boy's a satellite
He won't be home tonight

And we crown ourselves again
There's been no change
Since you and I were young
When we burned ourselves again
The spaceship days
When you and I were young
When you and I were young
When you and I were young were young

He says he won't bore us anymore
It's the final straw
A reason to rejoice
The boy's a satellite
He won't be home tonight

And we crown ourselves again
There's been no change
Since you and I were young
When we burned ourselves again
The spaceship days
When you and I were young
When you and I were young
When you and I were young were young

Thunderbird
There's far too many ghosts
It makes us rely on three notes
That could make you weep
Sad notes that blister in your heart I hope

And don't I know don't I realize
What's changing in our brains
And how it soothes
'Cos it's better than the truth
The truth is frayed at the edge and bruised
And no use any more

We could be crawling this time
We should be smiling this time
I see no spooks in you

Thunderbird can you see yourself big bird?
Thunderbird just speak it more discreetly
You're making it sound absurd

Now our dream
They flower in our hearts it seems
And don't I know don't I realize
What's changing in our brains
And how it soothes
'Cos it's better than the truth
The truth is frayed at the edge and bruised

We could be crawling this time
We should be smiling this time
I see no spooks in you

Thunderbird can you see yourself big bird
Thunderbird just speak it more discreetly
You're making it sound absurd
You're making it sound absurd
You're making it sound absurd

Here Comes the Fat Controller
Don't you think that it's about now?
You cooled your operations
And be generous somehow
Don't you think the sarcasms
A little hard to stomach
And the cynicism's boring
How do you feel?

And here comes the fat controller
With his boots off getting colder
I've got no confidence
In where he's been
We can make him sing
Sing sing

Don't you wish the hounds would all agree
The animals are restless
And there's still no guarantee
Feeding time is over now
The zoo will soon be closing
And the temperature is freezing
How do you feel?
How do you feel?

And here comes the fat controller
With his boots off getting colder
I've got no confidence
In where he's been
We can make him sing
Sing sing sing

Step outside your crazy tree
Its shaking canopy 'cos you're alive
Drag your bad news home
And slip inside your soul
Ya know ya know you're alive

Sooner than later
All will be revealed
And you'll be feeling OK
And how do you feel?
Ooh ya know
How do you feel?
How do you feel?
How do you feel?

Goodbye
Someone said it's easy
But as I sit here with my cup
Staring at it as if I'm some
Crazy poet when I'm not
I'm just a rock n' roll Joe
With tales of woe
And tears and fears

It's only love that stops you from
Walking out the door
Tears fly somewhere close to remorse
Sometimes

It's easy to all my friends I love
I still don't find it easy
To all my friends I love

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye I've arrived

Sally likes it sideways
Sally oh Sally don't ever change
And please don't think me scary
'Cos I'm not I'm just a rock n' roll Joe
With tales of woe
And tears and fears

It's only love that stops you from
Walking out the door
Tears fly somewhere close to remorse
Sometimes

It's easy to all my friends I love
Now I find it easy
To all my friends I love

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye I've finally arrived
At somewhere close to here
Goodbye goodbye ooh ooh

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
I've finally arrived

For Dreaming
Here come the good times
I have some good times you know
Bring on the good times
I have some good times you know
All we knew was happiness
All we knew and all we witnessed
It's only there for dreaming
It's only there for dreaming

I won't sentimentalise
The bonus loss of appetite
And skinniness that followed
The new taste of open lips
The last hope in trembling hips
And we swallowed

For dreaming for dreaming
I still can touch the ceiling with the feeling
That we swallowed
For dreaming for dreaming
I still can touch the screaming heights
I'm pleading can I follow you home

Bring on the good times
Bring on the good times once more
Bring on the good times
On the other side of your green door
It's only there for dreaming
I knew you'd find your way home
But you know I loved you

For dreaming for dreaming
I still can touch the ceiling with the feeling
That we swallowed
For dreaming for dreaming
I still can touch the screaming heights
I'm pleading can I follow you home

Outro
There's a song about a boy who phones this girl
She left town years before
And he's pissed off that he didn't know
'Cos he wanted to say goodbye
Tell her how he missed her
Wish her good luck
Put it to rest
All that unfinished business
I'm gonna phone everyone that I've known
Through the downs and the ups
And who I suspect have written me off
As an insensitive fuck
And say good luck... and goodbye
They'd feel good
I'd feel good
We'd all feel good
That would be so good

Wishville

Sparks are Gonna Fly
Recent years were unsung
I light 'em up
Burning my horoscope
Recent fears I've undone
I give 'em up
Sick of my bogus ghost
Rising up it reached my highest line
C'mon Daisy don't drown me this time

I'm living in fits can't get myself ripped
Don't make me no criminal
I'm easily moved it don't leave me no room
Don't make me no criminal
Rising up it reached my lowest line
I had bad ideas and ballast on my mind

Now the sparks are gonna fly
'cos I'm turned on again
Burning up the future
I'm taking off
I'm taking off

Recent fears about love
I string 'em up
These are my robust ropes
There'll be no more tears I'm unplugged
Let's live it up
Easy come easy go
Falling down gave me my highest line
So c'mon Daisy don't drown me this time

Now the sparks are gonna fly
'cos I'm turned on again
Burning up the future
I'm taking off
I'm taking off

Falling down I reached my highest line
I've got a good idea what breaks you makes you shine

Now the sparks are gonna fly
'cos I'm turned on again
Burning up the future
Now the sparks are gonna fly
'cos I'm turned on again
Turning on the boosters
I'm taking off
I'm taking off

(so c'mon Daisy don't drown me this time)

Gasoline
Fuel of fathers' sweat
Sweet like baby's breath
Strong like Superman
Stinking up the street I am
The feeling does me in
But here I go again

I love gasoline
I love gasoline

Smooth like summer silk
Sweet like mother's milk
Warm like tenderness
Perfume sprayed around my neck
I know it makes no sense
But here I go again

I love gasoline
I love gasoline

Here comes the rush again
Let me down easy

Warm like summer breeze
Flowing round your city
Come on down with me

I love gasoline
I love gasoline

Lifeline
Follow the lifeline I labeled so neat
Through every lifetime from scars that run deep
Follow the love tracks unrivalled unmatched
Book me the right train I'd love to nip back
Set up high above the Pyrenees
Set up high on the road of release

My brain, my arms, my chain, my charms
My aims, my itch, my foes, I've licked
My bed of flame my name
Spread myself round again
Spilled out my guts again
Think I might lay down again
Stitch me up I'm torn again

Follow the pipeline I laid it so deep
It flows out my window it flows out to sea
It curls round the mountain it takes up the slack
Book me the right plane I long to nip back
Set up high above the Pyrenees
Set up high on the road of relief

My lies, my lust, my truth, my trust
My league, my school, my game, my rules
My bed I've made, my grave
Spread myself round again
Spilled out my guts again
Think I might lay down again
Stitch me up I'm torn again

My eyes, my hips, my face, my lips
Are failing me
Combined with mixed up living
My victory is escaping me
La La La
The lifeline slips away

What We Want to Believe In
She was my sunlight
She made my skin glow
She had these bow legs
I didn't want her to go
Blue skies were turning red
Learned my grade the hard way
She loved me or so she said
So I say

We all believe
What we want to believe in
We like to dream
What we want to believe in
This is the real thing

I stretched her dress tight
I cut her hair low
I made her speak right
I didn't want her to go
Gray skies beneath my feet
I slipped on truth the hard way
She preferred herself to me
So I say

We all believe
What we want to believe in
We like to dream
And we want to believe it
So we all believe
What we want to believe in
This is the real thing so dance
Every woman and man
In cloud cuckoo land

All of That
I am a brute, but I abstain
I am foolish I am vain
Yeah I'm a fan
I am the brother of a famous man
I am gorgeous I am right
I have left this planet but I'll be back
I am delicious I am crap
I am all of that
I am all of that

I am smooth but I am crusted
I am speechless I can be trusted
I'm baby blue I am the nursery attached to you
I've been happy I've been sad
I graced this planet experienced that
I've been set up I've been set back
I've been all of that
I've been all of that

I'm enormous I am slight
I have left this planet but I'll be back
I am religious I am fat
I am all of that
I am all of that
I am all of that
And soon the time will come
When everybody's somebody
And nobody is anybody

Idle Life
Give me soap to shave around
Give me soap to shave around
With my guts exposed and slippy

Don't let them rush me
Don't hesitate
Don't let them take me away
There's nothing wrong
There's a malady in everyone
That keeps me away from the light

Shine, I give my first story
As I live the idle life
The leaping colour keeps your heart alive
A creeping glow beside you lava like
Shine you make your own glory
Come on take the idle life
A foreign guy I'm God's own prototype
A blushing bride who loves an idle life

Always above me
I light the day
Here rise the sun I embrace
There's nothing wrong
There's an apogee in everyone
That keeps you awake and alive

Shine, I gave my own story
Now I live the idle life
I know my foes may get me overnight
I'm safe and dry I'm God's own prototype
Shine, you crown your own glory
Come on take the idle life
Creeping colour fills your heart tonight
We see no others in our idle life

Mad Dog
Keep it sweet
Florist of dreams
A tangerine
You're burning up
The forest of love
You're tangled up

You're a weird child
Like your dad was
You're a bee sting
You're a mad dog
You're a fierce soul
In your bad clothes
Need some good luck
In your mad love

Keep it cheap
The promise of peaks
You've never seen
You turned around
Fountains of change
You made your name
What a name

You're a weird child
Like your dad was
Can you be still
You're a mad dog
You're a fierce soul
In your bad clothes
Need some good luck
In your mad love

It's just your magic is more than electric
It spins inside

Take me home
I'm staying up the road
I'll let you know
It isn't you
I need a clear space
To think it through

I'm a weird child
Like your dad was
I'm a bad star
You're a mad dog
You're a Queen Jane
It's a hard slog
I'm a pale saint
In your mad love

You're the May Queen
I'm the magpie
We're the twin sisters
We're the real dreamers

Ballad of a Running Man
For years I avoided caffeine
For years I was clean
I was calm and complete
Then the world fell down round my ears
Had a change in my state
Bug eyed and awake

I was grinding my teeth in my habitat
I couldn't stand still I was running back
But it was gone

Smack smack smacking my hands
Flap flapping my hands
Lick licking my wounds
Will it help me
Rip rip ripping my skin
Clip clipping my wings
Pick picking my bones
Will it help me
Hip hip hip to the beat
I can't find my own feet
Can't see where I stand
Ballad of a running man
Jam jam marathon man

For years I was wrapped up in blue
On sunny afternoons
Sunbathed but unmoved
On the ground I found me a stooge
He was clear out of school
With a theory to prove

He said he understood so I told him
It was just like I'd read in a magazine
Said I thought it was weird to be stumbling
And that It felt like a race
I was running in
That's already run

Smack smack smacking my hands
Flap flapping my hands
Lick licking my wounds
Will it help me
Rip rip ripping my skin
Clip clipping my wings
Pick picking my bones
Will it help me
Hip hip hip to the beat
I can't find my own feet
Can't see where I stand
Ballad of a running man
Jam jam marathon man

Crème Caramel
Crème Caramel, shy and shivering
Ring my bell so well
There's something moving slowly over us
Doesn't matter what you think or where you go
The reason why I'm losing my crust
A giddy contribution
You are merely dealing just enough
To keep the man alive
And sanitized
And keep a lid on his lust

And your wedding night thighs
Kept me alive
All through the good times
When the passion was ripe

Crème caramel, shy and shivering
Ring my bell so well
Smooth and sweet and really unctuous
And our love is mushed
And boy I'm feeling really bruised
I keep thinking my heart isn't true
But it keeps the man alive
I'll take an axe to that lie
When I'm moody and nude

And your wedding night thighs
Kept me alive
All through the good times
And your river blue eyes
Kept me alive
All through the good times
All through the good times
When the passion was ripe

B-SIDES

Upside Down
Life turns you upside down
You know I'm not shaking
But you always bring me down
Before I'm hanging upside down
She knows I can't take it
I can't take it
Life turns you inside out
You know I'm not faking
But you always bring me around
Before I'm hanging upside down
She knows I can't take it
I can't take it
I can't take it
I

Wish
(?)
Always gone
Wish that sometimes maybe you could go
Away
Away

So don't waste time
The reasons I can give are always mine
I can't take it to say
I can't take it to say
I can't take it to say
I can't take it to say

Look who's real
Wish that sometimes you could always be
The reasons I can give I cannot see
You always take a better part of me
Away
Away
Away

Spin
You've been so alone
You haven't found me at all
And I find it so hard
I find it so dark
It's time
It's time

It's what you say now
It's what you say now
It's what you say now

I've been so cold
I'd hear you're hurting alone (?)
But it's getting so long
Where have you gone
It's time
It's time

It's what you say now
It's what you say now
It's what you say now
It's what you say now
It's what you say now

Painful Thing
You don't know anything at all
Excuses always seem to fool you
I cannot come in case you call
All I can really say
It drags me down, down

I'm hot and cold all over
I'm hot and cold all over

Your love weighs down my shoulders
I'm hot and cold all over
Your love is such a painful thing
She knows where she has to go
She knows that I don't want to burn her
A woman's feet begins to slow
I'll catch your every breath
It drags me down, down
I'm hot and cold all over
Your love is such a painful thing

I'm hot and cold all over
I'm hot and cold all over
I'm hot and cold all over
I'm hot and cold all over

Let Me Down Again
Can't even think about tomorrow
I feel so bad that I can't swallow
Ah-oh
Ah-oh

Don't even think I might forgive it
You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again

I can't imagine pain much deeper
Hot pleasure dripping from my fingers
Ah-oh
Ah-oh

You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again
You let me down again

Crawling Over Me
Lying on the floor
Where the colour doesn't show
Through the open door
Is a place where I won't go
Time will tie my hands
The willingness to try
Maybe it's inside
I know where it runs to
It takes up all my time
I know where I want to run
It crashes through my mind
It's enough to make you
Crawl on your knees and
Crawl on your knees and
Crawl on your knees and
Crawl over me
Under me, over me
A piece of you that's mine
A piece of you that's mine
A piece of you that's mine
A piece of you that's mine

Intravenous
I feel like ice
That's broken underground
You say it twice
Eventually turn 'round
Always it's the same
You never understand me
Understand me
It's too confused
And this is never found
I'm just like you
Inject me when I'm down
Always it's the same
You never understand me
Always it's the same
The intravenous vein is easy
Is easy
Always it's the same
You never understand me
Always it's the same
Your intravenous vein is easy
It's easy

Dead Girlfriend
Don't look back
Please don't cry
I have this need
You must oblige me

There's no way out
So please don't try
I fill your mouth
I hear you cry

As you don't understand me anymore
I tie your wrists
Leave you bleeding, leave you raw
And fantasize, kid myself that you want more
[faint murmuring]

I'm sorry now
Didn't mean to hurt
I couldn't stop
It felt so good
[scream]

As you don't understand me anymore
I tie your wrists
Leave you bleeding, leave you raw
And fantasize, kid myself that you want more

If you don't understand me anymore
I tie your wrists
Leave you bleeding, leave you raw
Fantasize... you want more

Collideoscopic
I don't know why
It feels so different
It takes some time
Before I'm on my knees
I could pretend
To understand it
I see no end
To this confusion

Say what you say
Do what you do
It's no problem
Say how you'll be
Disguise it from me
It's no problem
Oh yeah

I don't know why
It feels so special
It takes no time
Before I'm on my head
Oh yeah

Say what you say
Do what you do
It's no problem
Say how you'll be
Disguise it from me
It's no problem
Say how you feel
So you can reveal
All of your problems
Say what you say
Do what you do
It's no problem
So much
So low
So up
So down
Say what you say
Do what you do
It's no problem
Say how you'll be
Disguise it from me
It's no problem
Say what you say
Do what you do
It's no problem

Our Friend Joey
Bury myself on a bed of nails
Killing myself cause it never fails
With you

I've gotta get all of you
I've gotta get all of you
I only want all of you
I've gotta get all of you

Always good
You never try
I wish you would
I don't know why
Understand the need to rush
Am I wanting far too much
Killing myself on a foolish dream
Killing myself cause I want to be with you

I've gotta get all of you
I've gotta get all of you
I only want all of you
I've gotta get all of you
I've gotta get all of you
I've gotta get all of you
I only want all of you
I've gotta get all of you

30th Century Man (Covering Scott Walker. Written by Scott Engel.)
See the dwarves and see the giants
Which one would you choose to be
And if you can't get that together
Here's the answer, here's the key

You can freeze
Like a 30th century man
Like a 30th century man
Play it cool
Like a 30th century man
Like a 30th century man

I'll save my breath and take it with me
'Til a hundred years or so
Shame you won't be there to see me
Shaking hands with Charles DeGaulle
Play it cool and surrender up all you can
Be a 30th century man

You can freeze
Like a 30th century man
Be a 30th century man
High, high
Be a 30th century man
Play it cool
Be a 30th century man
You can freeze
Be a 30th century man
Play it cool
Be a 30th century man

See the dwarves and see the giants
Which one would you choose to be
And if you can't get that together
Here's the answer, here's the key

You can freeze
Like a 30th century man
Be a 30th century man
You play it cool
And surrender off all you can
Be a 30th century man
You can freeze like a 30th century man
Be a 30th century man
You play it cool like a 30th century man
Be a 30th century man
You can freeze
And surrender off all you can
Be a 30th century man

Free of Mind
Right now feel like something far gone
Stripped down
Seems like everything I did was wrong
Well, maybe

Delicately laid to rest
In the house of more means less
Follow me inside
Delicately free of mind
A vacuum all the time
But it leaves me blind

Find out
Peel away the layers of my skin
Baby
But be sure
Brace yourself for what lies within
Baby

Delicately laid to rest
In the house of more means less
Follow me inside
Delicately free of mind
A vacuum all the time
But it leaves me blind

Stripped down
Delicately laid to rest
In the house of more means less
Follow me inside
Delicately free of mind
A vacuum all the time
But it leaves me blind

That's When I Reach For My Revolver (Covering Mission of Burma. Written by C. Conley)
Once I had my heroes
Once I had my dreams
But all of that is changed now
Gets twisted inside out
The truth is not that comfortable
No, no
And mother taught us patience
The virtues of restraint
And father taught us boundaries
In honor we must go
The vanity will colour us, yeah

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
That feeling passes by this way

A friend of mine once told me
His one and only aim
To build a giant castle
And in it sign his name
The silence whispers me and you in chains

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
That feeling passes by this way
Yeah

And now the sky is empty
But that is nothing new
The dead eyes look upon us
And they tell me we're nothing but things

That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when I reach for my revolver

Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely (Covering Husker Du. Written by Grant Hart.)
I'm curious to know exactly how you are
I keep my distance but my distance is too far
It reassures me just to know that you're okay
But I don't want you to go on leading me this way

And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know if you are less than lonely
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know, don't want to know

The day you left me left me feeling oh so bad
Still I'm not sure about all the doubts we had
From the beginning we both knew it wouldn't last
Decisions have been made, the die has been cast

And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know if you are less than lonely
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know
Don't want to know
Don't want to know
Don't want to know
Don't want to know
Don't want to know
Don't want to know
Don't want to know

The phone is ringing and the clock says 4 AM
If it's your friends then I don't want to hear from them
Please leave a number and a message at the tone
Or you can just go on and leave me alone

And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know if you are less than lonely
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know, don't want to know
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know if you are less than lonely
Don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't want to know

Come Back Again
Another year
A time event
To take you there
Another time
Another time
Another year
I make it fail
Another time
Some time to kill
Come back to love
Return to love
So don't reap all
It's a small part
The friction starts

Come back again
Come back again
Come back again
Come back again
Come back again
Come back again

She said
Blow the light away
Come back again
Come back again
You never missed
I tell you this
Come back again
Come back again
You know how it feels
My name is clinging so
Be mine, be mine, be there
You can't, you can't, you are here always
Fade away there
To share today
You love to know

Come back again
Come back again
Come back again

Pleasure
Share with me the victim of a place
If something is uncertain and unsafe
Distance this from pleasures I have won
Mothers new horizon is undone

If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
If this is how it really feels
This is how it always feels

Your precious gift is suffering
This is how it always feels
Your latest wish is suffering
Natural strength will come when it comes
A natural visitation

This is really how it feels
This is really how it feels
This is really how it feels
This is really how it feels
If this is really how it feels
Your latest wish is fluttering
This is really how it feels
This is really how it feels

Lost are the gifts
Misplaced are the sounds of the pleasure
Succumb to the pleasure

No no no no no no no no
Everyday
Everyday
Same time it always comes
Same time it always comes
Same time it always comes
Same time it always comes
I wanna show you how it feels
I wanna show you how it feels
I wanna show you how it feels
I wanna show you how it feels
I wanna show you how it feels

Smother
I want to smother
Love you like no other
I will discover
One twist some other time
I miss you so
Where have you gone
I miss your love
I swear you sinner
One false, another sign
Been down, been drowning
Don't know another sign?
Oh cant you show?
Where have you gone
I miss your love song?
My precious one
Where have you gone
Is this your charm?
I miss your charm
I keep your (?)
What's that (?) another day
I miss you so
Where have you gone
I miss your love song?

Capacity to Change
I can't resist my list of final words
So this is the final word
This is the final call
How I resent the urge to try so hard
When you don't try so hard
Can you explain
We're not the same

Where's your capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change

A sense to purge the urge for anything new
Some sense of a finer tune
Just what are you afraid of
Can you explain
We're not the same

Where's your capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change

You're the one I love the most
I know
The one I love the most
I think so
Hey what I meant to say
Hey
One side is flexible enough to gain
A real capacity to change
Can you explain
How can it be
We're not the same

Where's your capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
Hey capacity to change
To change

Willing To Wait
When you see him again
Tell him everything that you told me
Tell him that I'm still your friend
Maybe you would like to see me again
I'm willing to wait my turn
To be with you
But I still got a lot to learn about me
I'm not sure if we should be together

Oh
When I saw you again
A beautiful friend
She opened up her heart and let me in

Oh
I cannot lie to you
I'm still in love with you
And I only want to be with you

So when you see him again
Tell him everything that you told me
We're more than friends
Maybe we should start again
Maybe you could love me again
I'm willing to wait my turn
To be with you
But oh
When I saw you again
A beautiful friend
She opened up her heart and let me in

Oh
I cannot lie to you
I'm still in love with you
And I only want to be with you
Only want to be with you
Only want to be with you

Descending Babe
This feels like the end
I don't know what to say to my friends
I can't dig up the words
And I can't fully decide what is worse
So please don't feel betrayed
But I cannot provide the service anymore
It ain't me babe
It ain't me you're looking for

And it feels like I'm warm inside, that's a real surprise
I saw my makeup running past my eyes
And though the moment there was brief
It was plain enough to see
The time has shown that your need grows
Your need is deeper than me
Your need is deeper than me
Your need is deeper than me

This feels like the truth
And all [the saccharines too???]
Now I know
I can't [seem not to feels] (can't see how it feels???)
But only when you're real do you know

And it feels like I'm warm inside, that's a real surprise
I saw my makeup running past my eyes
And though the moment there was brief
It was plain enough to see
The time has shown that your need grows
Your need is deeper than me
Your need is deeper than me
Your need is deeper than me

Take me away
The silence has been so long
Take me away
The silence isn't so long

It feels the same you say you feel (?)
And [wings and all the (world?) (wheel?)
Where've you been
What a crazy world you live in
Seem to count up all the days
You feel as though you're thinking in your head
What a crazy world you live in

Take me away
Our solemness is so long (silence has been so long?)
I like to feel
Your reasons have been so
Oh

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away

Paranoia
Call me Doctor Frankenstein
Of London
Bring the loonies to my door
And offer up their mights
Now that may sound strange
But it's alright

Hey Julie how ya been
Hey Jonesy what's the score
As I ripple past your door
I'm going to try to process
My neurosis
I'm going to feed
My disease
Paranoia
I adore ya
Where the hell would I be
Without you there beside me

I take a walk down my back streets
On Sunday
All the people that I meet
Are dressed in Sunday's face
And they all smile
'Cuz they all know me

Hey Julie how ya been
Hey Jonesy what's the score
As I ripple past your door
I'm going to try to process
My neurosis
I'm going to feed
My disease
Paranoia
I adore ya
Where the hell would I be
Without you there beside me
Paranoia
Where the hell would I be
Without you there beside me
I'd be swimming in the sea of sanity

I don't want to know what you think
Cause I don't know what I think

Lucifer
Lucifer my friend
What a trip it's been
But I'm sick of all my amends
And grand apologies
What I need
I want to hear more and more about me
And in truth less and less

About you
About you
It takes one to know one
It takes one to know one
It takes one to know one
It takes one to know one
It takes one to know one
It takes one to know one

It's just sometimes
I'm already past the reason
And sometimes
It's like every word that's written
And it feels like let them go
Eugene's key keen to smell the rose
So keep it sweet boy
Keep it alive
We gotta keep them on their toes

It takes one to know one
It takes one to know one

Waiting aroused with that sneering smile
He's a cynical spirit
Said hey I really like it round here
And I like you too
And I don't believe a word of it
Eugene screams and howls with glee as he shows me what he likes (he's learned?)
But he's a pervert and I hope he dies
It would be less than he deserves
It's just sometimes
I'm already past the reason
It is like every soul is slowly dripping
It feels like let them go
When all you want to say is something simple
Lucifer my friend
What a trip it's been
But I've made my amends
