White Chocolate Space Egg

Orange and blue, green and pink
I see you in everything
Don't need money, don't need wine
I've got better ways to spend my time

I'll see you around
Every hollow has its favorite sound
And my heart is holding on

Purple, yellow, reddish brown
Once I felt you, I couldn't lay you down
Don't be shy, baby, don't be careful with me
Let it go, let it soak me down

I'll see you around
Every hollow has its favorite sound
Every rock and tree and leaf abound with your face
Trace

Don't tell me I've been wrong
Don't tell me all the magic's gone

I'll see you around
Every hollow has its favorite sound
I'll see you around
Every corner has its favorite clown
I'll see you around
I'll see you around
I'll see you around
I'll see you around
I'll see you
I'll see you

Only Son

All these babies are born
To the wrong kind of people
And I wish I had known
I was not good enough
I'm the worst kind of son
Bringing shame to my family
And I know I have worn
My mother's heart out, believe me
I saw it
I saw it coming

All these things I have done
To my little little sister
When I try to support her
She don't believe me
Why should she? I hurt her
I mean, I hurt her

So goodbye, so long, I'm gone already
I'm running out of time
I'm losing my mind
Won't you come take me home?

Goodbye, so long, I'm gone already
I'm running out of time
I'm losing my mind
Won't somebody hold me?

All these babies are born
Like a field full of poppies
Who's gonna know which are torn?
I believe I'll soon leave the meadow
I see my shadow

So goodbye, so long, I'm gone already
I'm running out of time
I'm losing my mind
Won't you come take me home?

So goodbye, so long, I'm gone already
I'm running out of time
I'm losing my mind
I think I'm losing my soul

Big Tall Man

I'm a big, tall man
I cut the grass
My left eye hurts
I am waiting and reading hearts
I can be a complicated communicator

Yes, I'm winning, spinning
I feel energy being pulled off from all sides
And it feels good
Like relieving a headache

Zeus and Athens
Florida driveway
Asphalt tires
Sand and the beach
Rocker panel
Headlights in the dark
I am drag racing
Drag

Yes, I'm winning, spinning
I feel energy being pulled off from all sides
And it feels good
Like relieving a headache

Yes, I'm winning, spinning
I feel energy being pulled off from all sides
And it feels good
Like relieving a headache

Fog and the distance beyond it
Boats and the quiet morning noises
I'm walking the shoreline
A beer and a cigarette
A bug with twitching antennae
A button-up short sleeved shirt

Yes, I'm winning, spinning
I feel energy being pulled off from all sides
And it feels good
Like relieving a headache

I'm a big, tall man
I cut the grass
My left eye hurts
I can be a complicated communicator

Yes, I'm winning, spinning
I feel energy being pulled off from all sides
And it feels good
Like relieving a headache

Yes, I'm careening down
Winding the canyons, now
Yes, I am broadcasting myself

Yes, I'm winning, spinning
I feel energy being pulled off from all sides
And it feels good
Like relieving a headache

Go on Ahead

You go on ahead, honey
You have a good time there
You make me feel funny
I'm no ordinary lover or a friend

I believe we have things to do
I believe in myself and I believe in you
I believe when I sleep you are near to me
When you sleep I am near to you

You walk out of the room with your hands so deep in your pockets,
I don't recognize you
You say you're a ghost in our house
and I realize I do think I see through you

So you go on ahead, honey
You have a good time there
You make me feel funny
I'm no ordinary lover or a friend

It's a death in our love that has brought us here
It's a birth that has changed our lives
It's a place that I hope we'll be leaving soon
And I fear for the year in his eyes

And it goes around in circles: one night is lovely, the next is brutal
And you and me are in way over our heads with this one, it's hard
To admit it, but you hold me and I can't feel you
We hurt but we smile
I promise I'll make it back when the summer has warmed me awhile

You go on ahead, honey
You have a good time there
You make me feel funny
I'm no ordinary lover or a friend

I believe we have things to do
I believe in myself and I believe in you
I believe when I sleep you are near to me
When you sleep I am near to you

Perfect World

What a pretty life you have
Oh boy, it's a pretty life you have
And I would need a map
Just so I could navigate the back yard

Home is very ordinary
I know I was born to lead a double life
Of murder, strife, and misery
And when I find it, I know I'll make sense of me

I want to be cool, tall, vulnerable, and luscious
I would have it all if I'd only had this much
No need for Lucifer to fall if he'd learn to keep his mouth shut
I would be involved, be involved, be involved, be involved
I would be involved with you

I know the girls
That live inside your world
Just sitting next to a mortal makes their skin crawl

I want to be cool, tall, vulnerable, and luscious
I would have it all if I only had this much
No need for Lucifer to fall if he's learn to keep his mouth shut
I would be involved with you

I want to be cool, tall, vulnerable, and luscious
I would have it all if I only had this much
No need for Lucifer to fall if he's learn to keep his mouth shut
I would be involved, be involved, be involved, be involved
I would be involved with you
With you.

Headache

I can see the Russian Army rolling through my head
On one side of me lies the enemy, the other half is dead
I've got diamonds and I've got pearls
And I said, "Hey, mister, won't you come for me?
You can take me home, but I will never be your girl
I won't let your mystery unfurl"

That's the whole thing about it
I'm so in love today
I've been waiting at the bus stop
Come my way

"Hey, mister, won't you come for me?
I'm a Psychosomatic sister
Running around without a leash"
You can take me home, but I will never be your girl
I won't let your mystery unfurl"

Russian army
Snow is falling, January's all across the land
I've got seven other men in the ditches behind me, and
I'm think I'm the last survivor

I said, "Hey, mister, won't you come for me?
I'm a Psychosomatic sister
Running around without a leash"
You can take me home, but I will never be your girl
I won't let your mystery unfurl"

Johnny Feelgood

Johnny feel good, Johnny right on
Johnny miss you, Johnny light on
Johnny makes me feel strangely good about myself

Moderation is a memory
Dive right in and let him send me
I could take this in doses large enough to kill

And I never met a man who was so pretty inside
He's got diamonds on the bed of his thumbnails and I
Never realized I was so dirty and dry
'Til he knocked me down, started dragging me around in the
Back of his convertible car

And I liked it
Let me tell you
I liked it more and more
Crimson and Clover, soon he's taken over all my senses now

And I never met a man who was so pretty inside
He's got petals on the bed of his sweat sock drawer
And who the fuck am I to criticize him
'Cause I really need him now, in fact
I'm kinda freaking out
And I'm wondering where the hell you all are

Johnny feel good, Johnny right on
Johnny miss you, Johnny light on
Johnny makes me feel strangely good about myself

And I've never met a man I was so crazy about
It kinda has become an obsession to me
I hate him all the time, but I still get up
When he knocks me down and he orders me around
Cause it loosens me up
And I can't get enough
And I'd pay to spend the night with him
Some more

And I liked it
Let me tell you
I liked it more and more
I liked it yeah
I really liked it
I liked it
I really really really liked it
I really liked it

Ride

As I stumble into bed, I curse the devil in my head
And if I die before I wake, I hope the Lord won't hesitate
To pluck my coffin from the ground
He need not heed the neighbors now
And throw me up for all to see the flies of
August swarming me

I get a ride
Right by your side
Under your skin
I'm digging in

I don't know, but I've been told
The road to heaven is paved with gold
And if I die before I wake, I need a ride
I need a ride
I'll need a ride
From you

I get a ride
Right by your side
Under your skin
I'm digging in

Well, sticks and stones can break my bones
And boys can make me kick and moan
But when I want it, I don't drive, I get a ride
I get a ride, I get a ride
From you

I get a ride, I get a ride
I get a ride from you

And if I die before I wake, I hope the Lord won't hesitate
To pluck my coffin from the ground
He need not heed the neighbors now
And throw me up for all to see the flies of
August swarming me

I get a ride

Polyester Bride

I was talking, not two days ago
To a certain bartender I'm lucky to know
And I asked Henry, my bartending friend
If I should bother dating unfamous men

And Henry said, "You're lucky to even know me.
You're lucky to be alive.
You're lucky to be drinking here for free cause I'm a
Sucker for your lucky, pretty eyes."

And then he said, "Do you want to be a polyester bride?
Or do you want to hang your head and die?
Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here?"

And I was sitting, not two days ago
Feeling lonely cause I'm just feeling low
And I asked Henry, my bartending friend
Why it is that there are those kind of men

And Henry said, "You're lucky to even know me.
You're lucky to be alive.
You're lucky to be drinking here for free cause I'm a
Sucker for your lucky, pretty eyes."

And then said, "Do you want to be a polyester bride?
Or do you want to hang your head and die?
Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here?"

"Princess, do you
Really want to flap your wings and fly
Cause you've got time."
He keeps telling me, "You've got time."
But I don't believe him
"You've got time."
I keep on pushing harder
I keep on pushing farther away
But he keeps telling me, "Baby," he says, "baby," yeah

"Do you want to be a polyester bride?
Do you want to hang your head and die?
Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale?
Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here?"
Do you want to be a polyester bride
Away from here
Do you want to be a polyester bride
Away from here
Princess do you
Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here?"

What Makes You Happy

But don't worry, mom, I met him in a restaurant
And all this time I've been getting to know him
He's got an ex-wife in Pasadena, and sometimes she's a mess
To deal with, but mostly we've been living here
Uninjured

There's a silence, and she says,
"Listen here, young lady, all that matters is
What makes you happy,
but you leave this house knowing my opinion won't
Make you love me if you don't care to."

I'm sending you this photograph, I swear
This one is going to last and all those other bastards
Were only practice
I feel the sun on my back
I smell the earth in my skin
I see the sky above me like a full recovery

"Listen here, young lady, all that matters is what makes you happy,
But you leave this house knowing my opinion
Won't make you love me is you don't care to"

"Listen here, young lady, all that matters is what makes you happy,
But you leave this house knowing my opinion
It won't make a difference if you're not ready."

Listen
"Listen here, young lady, all that matters is what makes you happy,
But you leave this house knowing my opinion
Won't make you love me is you don't care"

"Listen here, young lady, all that matters is what makes you happy,
But you leave this house knowing my opinion
Won't make you love me is you don't care"
Make you love me if you don't care
Listen
Listen

Love is Nothing

You thought I was something from afar
You thought I'd totally excite you
I guess it's just another thing to stand up close and ignite you

Love is nothing, nothing, nothing
Like they say
You gotta pick up the little pieces every day

You were telling me the friends we have in common
By the time I figured it out you were yawning

Love is nothing, nothing, nothing
Like they say
You gotta get up and work the people everyday

And I thought, "Who am I?
Who's this guy?
Would I lie
To make the day blur into the night?"

Love is nothing, nothing, nothing
Like they say
You gotta pick up the little pieces every day

Love is nothing, nothing, nothing
Like they say
You gotta get up and work the people everyday

Fantasize

He's a friend of mine
Kind of special guy
He's a run-around

Hey, you've got to hide your love away
I hear people are talking about us
And I just have to say
I lie awake every night
Thinking about you. I fantasize
All around me people are changing

He's a special guy
Kind of sentimental inside

Hey, you've got to hide your love away
I hear people are talking about us
That's ok with me
Get it easily inside

Baby Got Going

Baby got going on a southern train, you know
Fired up pistons driving below
And the whole vibration, seat upholstery
Silky underwear, oh conductor, let's roll, let's roll

Baby got going but I can't complain, you know
It knocks me out when she acts so strange, it's like a
Big Mack truck cut across three lanes in my soul, conductor
Let's throw some metal down, roll, let's roll

Squeeze her knees underneath a book, you know
A real good shakin' is all it took
Cause my baby's hooked on me, and as you can see
I'm wild about her

Baby got going but I can't complain, you know
You know it knocks me out when she acts so strange, it's like a
Big Mack truck cut across three lanes in my soul, conductor
Let's throw some metal down, roll, let's roll, let's roll

She gets mad when it goes too slow, so I'm beggin' you, man
Keep a shovelin' that coal and let's roll, let's roll, let's roll

Shitloads of Money

Louis is probably thirty years old but he looks like a solid 45
Louis says he's got a headache
I look in his eyes, and I believe him
The big L.K.'s and the gangster disciples
Louis can't think of who else could take over, but he just can't
Get up in the morning
A genuine face, braced for survival

It's nice to be liked
But it's better by far to get paid
I know that most of the friends that I have don't really see it
That way
But if you could give 'em each one wish
How much do you wanna bet
They'd wish success for themselves and their friends and
That would include lots of money

Don't know how many times you were stuck in the morning
You just couldn't move, though your mother was calling
You know, what you need
Is a Lotto revival
A train flashes by and you're lost in a spiral

It's nice to be liked
But it's better by far to get paid
I know that most of the friends that I have don't really see it
That way
But if you could give 'em each one wish
How much do you wanna bet
They'd wish success for themselves and their friends and
That would include lots of money

Take the train on up to the zoo, and don't look back
On what you've been through
Cause everyone's got a Monday
It looks like shit and it must be America
It burns so quick, and it must be America

It's nice to be liked
But it's better by far to get paid
I know that most of the friends that I have don't really see it
That way
But if you could give 'em each one wish
How much do you wanna bet
They'd wish success for themselves and their friends and
That would include lots of money
That would surely include lots of money

You have got to have shitloads of M-O-N-E-Y, money

Uncle Alvarez

There's a portrait of Uncle Alvarez
Hanging in the hall
Nobody wants to look at it
But Uncle Alvarez sees us all

Ho ho ho, imaginary accomplishments
Hey hey hey, you visionary guy
You might even shake the hands of presidents
Better send a postcard and keep the family quiet

He's not really part Cherokee Indian
He didn't fight in the Civil War
He's just Eugene Isaac Alvarez
We feel sorry for the wall

Ho ho ho, imaginary accomplishments
Hey hey hey, you visionary guy
You might even shake the hands of presidents
You're gonna make them sorry when you die

It's a long way down, you're hoping for a heart attack
Running around, investing in this and that, and your
Beautiful wife keeps your life on a shelf for you
Safe in the bedroom where there's no dust or mildew and it's
Hard to believe you were once a
Beautiful dancer

Better just to shake it off
As you write your resume
Don't think of Uncle Alvarez
And the price he had to pay

Ho ho ho, imaginary accomplishments
Hey hey hey, you visionary guy
You might even shake the hands of presidents
You're gonna make them sorry when you die

Ho ho ho, imaginary accomplishments
Hey hey hey, you visionary guy
You might even shake the hands of presidents
Better send some money to the alma mater

Girls' Room

I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the sky
I'm sleeping in the water

I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the girls' room tonight

Here comes Tiffany
My best friend, Tiffany
Wearing a size too small of sweater

Me and Tiffany
Dressing up pretty
We love to ride, we love to canter

My best friend Tiffany
She is so popular
We're going from site to site and pool to pool tonight

And we hear Terry say that Tricia's okay
But she ought to learn to shave her bikini line better
And Tauren was born, like her mother in a storm
And Tracey's been away forever

I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the sky
I'm sleeping in the water

I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the girls' room
I'm sleeping in the girls' room tonight.
