make the world go away



a couple of winks between nightmares

you've only ever seen me in the dark after we've been drunk for a while

i don't owe you anything

you barely set aside the standards that you've used to lead

but you don't owe me anything

i'd rather we just met in the spirit of odd fantasy

minus old jealousy

you've got your sea legs

you've got your party hat

you've got your angel wings

you've got everything anyone could ever do

yet you're bored and you can't tell what to do

you fucking spoiled little brat i hate you



a mockery of the sanctity of some weird vague thing

here i was hoping that your utopian dream is coping with my karaoke scene

when while you were sleeping i am sleeping around on you

in the guilt that i am living so you don't have to

you can't shame me but i don't blame you for judging me through what i had to do

although you're faking you just made it so you would lose

now you'll never have to wonder what if you choose

i don't remember being younger i don't remember being anything at all

now that i've lost it and i've lost you but that's ok it's true

i'm just not sure how i can do it without you



a weird wind

i can't watch any tv somebody does what somebody sees

i only dream that you think of me when i am asleep

i got a horse that i can't break but it don't matter

cause one day i'll be free i'll be free i'll be free

to run run run run run run i'm running away

electrical wire shooting volts through my veins setting my body on fire

spirals in my brain dust in all the cracks every day sifting through what's held back

but i can't sleep with all this electricity running straight through me

but i'll be free i'll be free i'll be free

to run run run run run run i'm running away

i don't own any cd's somebody sweats when somebody bleeds

now that i'm broke i've got nothing to say no confidence without money the bread that i pay

a weird wind is blowing inside out of me but none of it matters

cause soon i'll be free i'll be free i'll be free

to run run run run run run i'm running away

i'll be free i'll be free i'll be free

to run run run run run run i'm running away

i'll be free i'll be free i'll be free

to run run run run run run i'm running away



amateur magic act

is she innocent oh god no

she's the woman of my soul

she got nothing i can hold

hips of fire

oh man oh man oh man oh man

how could i have been so bold

she could see that i can't hold

my own my own my own my own

a painted picture of that look

hardest hit i ever took

bells ring in holy desire

i'm feeling fucking old man

old man old man you want a dinosaur instead

all the beauty that i can eye

couldn't teach me to kiss like a victim tonight

woah man woah man woah man act natural



angel wear

if it's not a game to me how come i feel so fucking played

how a vow of silence how about a vow in pounds can betray

a liar blonde with angel wear in an auburn haze

every day i think it's rain and every day it's all the same all sunshine

the lonesome wolf prays

everyone knows who's going insane

if i were a ghost i'd be the ghost of a gnome

i have a soul for which i am on my own

the lonesome wolf prays

everyone knows who's going insane



by how many ends may i burn the candle

she said you'll stop living in pain when you chop off your mane

and start creating the sunrise out of heart break

for so long that he said that his jaws were aching

and if the mind is a temple we must not be faking

i need a boat filled with ice

and when it melts for the river to bail me out

the dried remains of a womans flower crown

lay pressed between the pages i have found

salvation beyond the touch and now

exploiting the sadness of my enemies i will drown

i need a boat filled with ice

and when it melts for the river to bail me out again



canadian punk rock t-shirts

scary three words that will liberate you from pain

things have changed

all is not the same

things have changed

don't be a slave or be a slave it's all the same to me

evidence of gold is to be saved and be sane

evidence of the soul is told what it means

lo and behold is all that refrains

cobwebbed and swept and blown out these brains



capo for a twelve-string

this side wants you on mine defining where we lie

time can only sometimes stretch it all out and lay it on the line

why do you notice me

why can't i abstain

style while we vain

why do we lie it's fake

why do i try i'm sinking

capo for a twelve-string

smile is a good way to hide what it's like

to try to be peaceful about everybody all up in my face all the time

why do you notice me

why can't i abstain

style while we vain

why do we lie it's fake

why do i try i'm sinking

capo for a twelve-string



century

there's no reason to lie

hold it hold it now hold it down and let it die

i've got smiles as high as sky

mine as wide as miles high

force another to cry

sabre dance also sprach zarathustra in hi-fi

i've got smiles as high as sky

mine as wide as miles high

sent a letter to bribe

polio suicide tesla and einstein

i've got smiles as high as sky

mine as wide as miles high

all ends the moment you try

nevermind well ok if you must let's try

i've got smiles as high as sky

mine as wide as miles high



dat self

remember he's an enemy he's not your friend

he's not got a heart but a hole there instead

gotta know when to leave him know when to walk out that door

cause he's coming for blood and he'll take so much more

he's not listening to a word that you said

nothing really matters to him cause he's dead

he said he'll pick you up when you finish work

but he forgot now you're late alone in the dark

remember he's an enemy he's not your friend

he's not got a heart but a hole in his head

gotta know when to leave him know when to walk out that door

cause he's coming for blood and he'll take so much more



destroy everything

so nihilistic of me

just so pomo can breathe

all my friends that i miss

can you give them a kiss for me

tattoo hickey neck all over my breath

take away my sadness you can keep what's left

all over your mouth i finally feel free

checking my heart beat makes me heart beat faster

held captive in my own pile of shit waitin for disaster

so i can throw a fit about how i'm hardly free

this unforgiving crown you've worn all around town

is turning you bald man now you can never look down

your famous last words are a burden to all my dreams

false idols are the hopes for everyone of a kind

who give it up now beause your baloney is blind

forget what you expect forget it all in respect of all time

women are angels of compassion for men

who are fools for every last drop addicted to the scent

i'm living like a rat inside your empty belly

so nihilistic of me

just so pomo can breathe

all my friends that i miss

can you give them a kiss for me



deus ex machina and oh my god i can't believe how good it was

a couple of kids on an old beaten down farm

paint all the doors to find their way through the dark

to just keep on trying to just keep on smiling

when you open your arms that's where everyone's hiding

perhaps you were meant to love from a distance and fall in resistance

all the while everyone dancing back and forth and side to side

under brooding moonlight denying the sunshine inside

as for the wild in the wild as for the wild a lonesome truce

it has nothing nothing there's nothing you can lose

and i know i'm not ready cause i still feel like dying

but maybe that doesn't matter and i'll just keep on lying to you

trying to prove that the reason i'm here is the reason you choose

too sick to get drunk too smart to ignore

you try to become the lesser son of a bitch than you were to become who you are

it's hard to get the living to endure what the dead have been doing for years

as for the wild in the wild as for the wild a lonesome truce

it has nothing nothing there's nothing you can lose

a couple of kids suck all the fun

beat it to death now everyone's bored

choosy a style stretch it a mile

hold out your hand and everyone's tired

the colours are enticing but the words they mean nothing

the body is sore the bones in my crayons are crackling on fire and fragile

glow in the dark modern art i'd rather get high

as for the wild in the wild as for the wild a lonesome truce

it has nothing nothing there's nothing you can lose



diediediediediediedie (i'm awake)

wake up make some tea and catch the latest from my friends

all the little mice are sick and running around the house

the coffee grinds the glue that binds pulsations to my head

if you get the spider down it's die die die die...

im awake

headless cat is yapping naw she doesn't have a friend

nine to five in silent light the war that lays ahead

when i hit the ground i fall asleep i'm not dead yet

i can hear the angels singing die die die die...

im awake

moldy old dog mask i wear and tools now i'm prepared

i do a few more lines cause that's the rules and i play fair

we gather round the world's drowning now take the wheels and steer

it's all anybody's singing now is die die die die...

i'm awake



drinkin' whiskey w/ a racist fuck

of course i meant every single word i ever said

go back to the basement inside your head

or hold on for good now instead

we're broke and breaking bread

making soul shaking sticks

a war's coming like the warm maiden camping out in your cold bed

hold my hand i can't forget i can't forget

the sweetest odd laughter don't blow all your gas

i'll be there as soon as i can

we're broke and breaking bread

making soul shaking sticks

the war's coming like a warm maiden camping out in your cold bed



flowers laugh at

no matter where you lay your dirty head

your eyes close cloaked and dreaming again

time does all of the talking

i thought you were all my friends

and thanks for being better than me

my salted wounds aren't thankful just yet

there was a place i called home

it was you and me alone

this girl whispers like all light flickers

sunset pictures carry our weight in burden

tell yourself what's right

tell yourself i'm wrong he's got no head on

squinting for the signs or any old reminders of our lives

with words hysterical my tongue blisters

no one knows better when looking for the answers



flowers laugh at (not with)

no matter where you lay your dirty head

your eyes close cloaked and dreaming again

time does all of the talking

i thought you were all my friends

and thanks for being better than me

my salted wounds aren't thankful just yet

there was a place i call home

it was you and me alone

this girl whispers like all light flickers

these sunset pictures carry our weight in burden

tell yourself what's right

tell yourself i'm wrong he's got no head on

squinting for the signs or any old reminders of our lives

with words hysterical my tongue blisters

no one knows better when looking for the answers



for mom and dad while we're all still

laying on my back and dreaming of long lineless horizons

i'm just dumb enough to still enjoy my own company

for mom and dad while we're all still alive i'll always love you

worst always comes to worst when it's true or when it's a good story

for mom and dad while we're all still alive i'll always love you

for mom and dad while we're all still alive i'll always love you

for mom and dad while we're all still still alive i'll always love you



for the sights

oh my god what i have done i used to believe i think when i was young

oh my mom what have i become even if i believe whatever i want

sun is set in sun we're a cappella

ignorance eternal burns all halos

your sweet perfume is smelling up my pillows

he said to his son learn a trade at once he's leaving all his meaning up to no one

blessed to speak in tones had he might have known

beating heart of beating keeps everybody warm

sun is set in sun we're a cappella

ignorance eternal burns all halos

your sweet perfume is smelling up my pillows



for whom the moon

wishing and waiting wishing you were here holding my head

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own

alone that means there's nobody nobody nobody

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own

when do i get to romanticize this suicide fantasy that i lie

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own

jaded and no forgiving him when he left but he really wanted to stay

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

a long a long time ago

someone someone i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own




for whom the moon/pardon the warden

wishing and waiting wishing you were here holding my head

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own

alone that means there's nobody nobody nobody

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own

when do i get to romanticize the suicide fantasy that i lie

a long a long time ago

somewhere somewhere i know

you only wanna go as far you can on your own

hating and no forgiving him when he left but he really wanted to stay

a long a long time ago

someone someone i know

you only wanna go as far as you can on your own


/


half the time i forget the lies the other times i couldn't care why i pardon the warden

let's don't let love die it's ok if we change cause we don't make timeless the boredom

it's the first step on the coals and the waves crashing upon us all

what is this thing anyways i'm the one you're scared of in the woods tonight

when it always gets a bit sullen in the end well you know where i live

cause crying's a useless motion

and with autumn all the leaves fall and all the birds' nests are exposed i'm just trying not to toss away the centre of my universe

it's the first step on the coals and the waves crashing upon us all

what is this thing anyways i'm the one you're scared of in the woods tonight



go little girl go-go

go go little girls go-go

what you're doing is flying

grow and all the flowers will follow you

grow little homey oak houses

when the end began we met

moan in a lucid tongue

all the little stuffed bears are listening to your song

smiling and pretending that i'm big and strong

but i'm really but i'm really but i'm really not at all

when the end began we met

throw down a fuzzy little hand

and a little mossy foot

and pass down forgotten gowns

throw down your worth

a sense of a little speck of dirt

our eyes colliding is all right

when the end began we met



headphoned and straight-jacketed

i read your note but i didn't believe the reasons you gave me

it's all a joke but that's ok with me cause i'm still laughing

i'm full of ghosts but that doesn't mean i want you to raise me

into the waves at the weigh in i stood and waved

in from the shade into a paler shade away

and on to the grave the grave phasing out of phase

what can i say it's a little lost on lately

take off my socks and smoke cause i can't sleep i'm still extinguishing

that there is no hope but that's ok with me cause i'm still hungry

if you want an entertaining story go listen to some other man going crazy

into the waves at the weigh in i stood and waved

in from the shade into a paler shade away

and on to the grave the grave phasing out of phase

what can i say i'm a little lost on lately



i can be saved

as soon you open up the crows are calling wishing you were dead

i can be saved

they hop along the sides of highways fucking with your head

i can be saved

i believe in believing it all revolves around me and the world is coming to an end

i can be saved

i can be saved

i don't care what everybody says

i can be saved i can be saved

some time wiggles a bit in and out of consciousness how do you forget

i can be saved

all the young boys and ladies with their body image daily but i just pretend

i can be saved

lift my body high and mighty and later on i'll let you tie me to your bed

i can be saved

i can be saved

living in your rat infested nest

i can be saved i can be saved



i can find myself next to anybody

i love making you jealous fucking with your head

i can find myself next to anybody i can't find myself next to anybody

don't worry cause it's already too late

there ain't no time to make a mistake

when no ones around you don't have a face

i can't find myself next to anybody i can find myself next to anybody

don't worry about giving me space

cause you don't know what i want what i want's what i take

well you're holding the straws the only one with a stake

i can find myself next to anybody i can't find myself next to anybody

don't get too proud about your broken heart

you're a soft spot in a hardened spark

when it comes time to get real now forget about it

i can't find myself next to anybody i can find myself next to anybody

i can't find myself next to anybody i can find myself next to anybody



i ching

i am now forgotten lost inside your patterns i don't remember reasons i thought i had for feelings

now we completely agree on everything in blinking your ping is winking

my worst nightmare is your wildest dream

silence now and hold my peace

i haven't changed very much not as much as i thought you tried so hard not to frown that you forgot

to smile and sing and tease your fling and breathe in deeply believe i ching

my worst nightmare is your wildest dream

silence now and hold my peace



i suffer your indignities well

remind me why i'm defining lying

and refining your lines

i'm making up lies

i'm liking silence in the end



if i appear awkward it's because i can read your mind

spent so many years thinking i was here

but i was just drinking in the shower and now i don't care

to play to persuade a ghost to join the game

a tongue to depress your nose to the glass

and born to behave what seems a certain way

a socket in the sand a straw for every strand

and the true sun shines through a terrarium no where has ever been



i'm a man

i think i think therefore i stink

i will die hold my head high

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man

unto me in time moments all mine

eternal light myself to shine

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man

maybe she knows maybe she don't

whatever it is is what it can not

all she can see is all before me

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man

and you noticed i'm a man



impassion me with reason

if we are related holler a sense of pride

but if the sun is jaded everyone must die

you mean a lot of sad things for me

impassion me with reason now

standing in the morning grass

waiting for the sun to rise

doesn't take long it doesn't take too long to it doesn't take long it's all over now and it's all gone

riding rails i make big blind reals it all makes sense somehow but not before i've given up and gone back down

if we are related holler a sense of pride

but if the sun is jaded everyone must die

you mean a lot of sad things for me

impassion me with reason now



into the river

never buried, forever's a lie

always forward and always twisting

our right hands, fuck jams, we're almost there man

hold my other hand we'll pretend we're friends

pick me up by my feet

and place my body into the river

keep me down there so long

i don't even think i remember

we're never enough and always right

open your open door and let everything in

you can't copyright a list of ingredients

silence, a deaf laugh, descent into sense

pick me up by my feet

and place my body into the river

keep me down there so long

i don't even think i remember

pick me up by my feet

and place my body into the river

keep me down there so long

i don't even think i remember



jovial sunshine

hey you stupid fucked up ignorant mother fuckers stop being so goddamn cruel

to all the cops out there just cause you haven't a face for blame doesn't mean you haven't a grave to dive

fifteen minutes of pleasure or pain whatever it takes to get you high

foxes and wolves gonna eat us all the evolution blues gonna change your mood

i drank for seven days and wrote it all on the sunday evening

rock and roll will never die therefore neither will i

be thankful for the food you're about to eat it was killed by the evolution blues

be grateful that all you have to do is sit and think and wallow in your evolution blues

i can't sleep tonight no i can't rest these living blues

i don't think twice don't think right time heals all wounds

i know a guy who's got a dog and he calls it a stupid fool

i know a guy who's got a girl and he calls it hallelujah

when the light in my mind is a dimmer and burns into the shadow of my iris

that's when i better turn out this light and shut down this shrine and find the pieces of my mind

scattered and hidden beneath the clouds

you're my pillow you're my pillow you're my goodbye

hello and when the hope that i wear on my chest starts to mellow

and the mouth that i'm in is choking i'm swallowed

and when my face is pressed up against the glass of the mirror

i just close my eyes and tell myself to wake up but i'm just screaming

because i am sorry for the horror of your sorrow i am sorry for your endless sorrow

when sometimes i'm amazed at what the people before me have caved inside this mountain it's a sign

i am floating i am floating and i am high and i crave nothing but to crave

i am blind to my escape in a context i can relate it's really hard not to hate

when i am burning and i am burning and i am burning and i am burning and i am burning and i am burning and i am burning at the stake

i am burning i am burning from your jovial sunshine

i don't wanna stray my eyes from the way you live and the way you die

to the way you love and the way you lie

open up and let my body die just let it in and let it shine

i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning

i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning i am burning

i am burning from your jovial sunshine



keep your apologies in your pants

laying around pulling out all of your ass hairs he's a little lost man he can't

he's scratching the frame of meaning something of what to scream why can't we

you're always afraid when i pump it straight to your heart

you're only into hanging out when we know our parts

and though i am wise i have to steal like anyone else

you're properly jaded yeah totally right on the mark

fawning fawning fall all over again he thinks you've got something nobody's seen

with her body in resurgence her mind in despair desire back in demand

she bought a new hair trying to look pretty popcorn bags filled with old come rags

you're always afraid when i pump it straight to your heart

you're only into hanging out when we know our parts

and though i am wise i have to steal like anyone else

you're properly jaded yeah totally right on the mark

diet dying dying diet shedding weight that you gained in happy days

don't got enough stuff playing tricks pulling stunts to make sure that he really really loves me

make sure that he really really loves me

make sure that he really really loves me

make sure that he really really loves me



let it all fall back down

a little something that you can't hide

a mighty exercise in pride

let it all fall back down

let it fall back down

the easy way in which you decide

a simple judgement to define your side

let it all fall back down

let it all fall back down

the way in which you see your size

is only ever defined by mine

let it all fall back down

let it fall back down

let it all fall back down

let it fall back down



little ease

she moans a little as to say

don't moan this ain't about you but me instead

as a warning don't get too turned on it's a little late for that

in the morning we gonna pop that little old head

can't get you out of my head

it's been too long lately

can't get you out of my head

it's been so long lately i'm feeling a little dead

a little ease a lot of little easy choices

a lot of leeway is gonna come back and haunt us

she groans a little stretching her legs

all bones have no room for memories

as a warning don't forget to let the air out of your bed

in the morning we gonna pop that little old head

can't get you out of my head

someone come save me

can't get you out of my head

someone come save me or i'm a die a little more death

a little ease a lot of little easy choices

a lot of leeway is gonna come back and haunt us

gonna test my good fortune

then i'm gonna leave

make my way across the ocean

and swim in the sea

a little ease a lot of little easy choices

a lot of leeway is gonna come back and haunt us



make the world go away

yesterday yesterday i was the monster

and today today i am the moth

straight line towards the light and hope

to make the world go away

say the things you used to say

make the world go away

beauty's in the eye of the beheader sketching out my bones to play

worshipping the altar that i've ridden far too long forgiving me

of all excuses that i've made

to make the world go away

pour the gasoline all over me we'll see if i withstand the flames

the silence overbears the potential of knowing if we feel the same

the same thing that we overstate

make the world go away

yesterday yesterday i was the monster

and today well today i am the moth

straight line towards the light and hope

to make the world go away

say the things you used to say

and make the world go away



me

there's a hole in the river that the sea has found

and the sun will deliver where i am bound

the soul of the sum our aching sounds

the pull in the better of me



mother earth, father sky, and me

sitting around thinking how how high do bees fly

with an easy friend she's weird as hell

i love her til the end

there's a hole in the river that the sea has found

and the sun will deliver me where i am bound

the soul of the sum our aching sounds

the pull in the better of me

say a prayer every time you come

there's no getting back together for anyone

there's a hole in the river that the sea has found

and the sun will deliver me where i am bound

the soul of the sum our aching sounds

the pull in the better of me



nobody gets what they want from me anymore

the wise are weird to pray to halos halos halos

insight will shine and shade he moans he moans he moans

for now i am today if i may i may i may

the wandering wise world lays alone in somebody elses grave

her soft pulse beats over me

her warm skin overflowing me

stir with a knife ginger tea for life

symbolist symbolist winking and friendly

and honest to goodness my stance is where i'll be

the wise are weird to pray to halos halos halos

insight will shine and shade he moans he moans he moans

for now i am today if i may i may i may

the wandering wise world lays alone in somebody elses grave

alone in somebody elses cave

alone as somebody elses slave

alone i gave all i gave

but her soft pulse beats over me

her warm skin is overflowing me

stir with a knife any tea you like

symbolist symbolist winking and friendly

and honest to goodness my stance is where i'll be

one two three

singing you and me

one two three

singing lee-da-dee-da-dee

we're marked for slaughter i know

so stare as long as you want

your salty tear is still tingling on my tongue



other folks fingers

i have seen i have been to the middle of what i mean

in my dreams and i dreamed of the middle of your bed

where i breathe on my knees with the sheets over our heads

i can see all you can be when you kneel and breathe with me

i am pleased if you pleased tell me what i mean

when i dream of you being wrapped around my head

as you squeeze your bold knees i couldn't hear a thing you said

but i believe in what you mean i can feel the faith in me

the faith you have no one can save ya will burn your shape eternally

and as i sit upon the mountain alone i failed so miserably

when i'm reborn as an animal the fish a tree or anything

even though i am the alien i hope that we aren't enemies

and i screamed and i screamed what does it really mean

as i stare and i stare at your shaven new bald head

but you've been cured so i burned the scraps of your old hair

with my friends my true friends all they do is care

well it's a lie that i tried to give everything that i had

all i can see is just me crushing my own dreams

so you screamed and i screamed now everything is sad

i spy from my little eye something that is dying

the faith you have no one can save ya will burn your shape eternally

and as i sit upon the mountain alone i failed so miserably

when i'm reborn as an animal the fish a tree or anything

even though i am the alien i hope that we aren't enemies



peace time for a war effort

who's a little monkey come here who's my little baby

never ending is the dream nor the bug bites drawing saintly

i wish you could hear me from there

nothing worth note when living can't compare

first impression fades then silence overcame

into another's arms to try and feel the same

pumping at the peddler's dismissive tone making me feel crazy

being a realistic fool i never expected to get home safely

i should have known it was cued up like strung out angels falling

with the whistling of the wind and the parable i'm training

it moves through my ears but out a language i am burning

to keep out fear and loneliness make that which will appear

goodness being a home in the hay and a family for a beacon

kindness the ability to restrain from revealing illusions of pain

i wish i could cut off a piece of this permanent feeling

and give to you a few words that'll make us all go dancing

peace time for a war effort i'll just say

i'll love you til the end in weirdness together ok



poland

a true declaration of your love could never match the eye of your taste

but no one will blame you for this disgrace poland

determined to regret all of your mistakes

that you know you're just making grace saving face poland

what when your illness doesn't end you'll have spun so far the fuck around the race

can't tear these lines from your face poland

to conquer and inhabit the enormity of this place

flood my mind with new ideas and old memories of poland



prayer

lick the palms of my bones

the chewy part of my soul

the darkest tomb is my tome

well cut the vein from this poem

i sat upon i sat upon i sat upon my own dying throne

twisting a while as if the wind is ever listening

and this the sting that there's nothing else more than this thing

as long as i'm living i'll be wishing you a little more

as long as i'm living i'll be wishing another wise lord

the burden of his own birth

i'm tired and my face hurts

gonna turn down the church

you only love on your terms

i'm going to find i'm going to find i'm going find my secret room

twisting a while as if the wind is ever listening

and this the sting that there's nothing else more than this thing

as long as i'm living i'll be wishing you a little more

as long as i'm living i'll be wishing another wise lord



pretty cherry

pretty voices make me sick

i'd rather listen to you eat my shit

no one likes the blues anymore

no one's knocking down my door

ol pretty cherry baby cancer's the core

finally a face we all can afford

everybody knows the kids are old

witches and clowns we're all just mimes and moms in old clothes

the kind of man the kind of man the kind of man that you belong

the kind of man the kind of man the kind of man that you belong

the very beginning of yes

suffer on the outskirts i guess

these are the months where you decide

whether you wanna or whether you wanted to die

a steady low moan a steady low moan a steady low moan oh uh huh

a steady low moan a steady low moan a steady low moan oh uh huh

don't take it from me but nobody's alone

even though i'm always drinking alone

nobody has to make all alone

if you want you can take it to a higher alone

i shoulda come home i shoulda come home i shoulda come home but i'm a fool

i shoulda come home i shoulda come home i shoulda gone home but i'm a fool

i shoulda come home i shoulda come home i shoulda gone home but i'm a fool

i shoulda come home i shoulda come home i shoulda come home but i'm a fool



pretty feathers

everybody sing cause everyone's the same

look i too feel pain and i don't need a gun

seek to find the truth wisdom is a noose

even if it is that don't make it true

come home and stain my bones

your face is always showing

everybody sing cause everyone's the same

look i too feel good and i don't need a shave

everybody drink cause i'm already drunk

i don't need to think cause i don't know what i want

your warm sustaining glow

a heart that's always growing

everybody sing cause everyone's a slave

we're doing what we should and i don't need a name

everybody stink we're living on a farm

misinterpret sheep who sing along with songs

under their torches blow

your pretty feathers are burning

lay your magic on a friend or place it upon a future you really want on a bed to lay her on

im not an enemy or a friend to anyone i'm not staying in love i'm not saying a lot

i'm not staying alive i can't fake a lie i can only try while all else goes on and on

everybody sing cause everyone's awake

look i too feel shame and i don't need anyone



scream while you can

oh shit the light's creeping in

guess i lost my way again

shed a light at dawn or any time i want

broke my fist on enemy spit

grinding away at my wrists

i set a light up on where you're usually hung

oh shit the knife's breaking skin

still not far enough away from sin

all the light is gone the vigil's over go home

oh no i've lost all my friends

pissed too many off from drinking again

real light i've known

what real light i've known

is real light i've known

the real light i've known

real light i've known

real light i've known



smother your man

you hated me

i hated you too

i wished i was dead

and also you instead

you ain't you ain't nothing but a fucking saint

if my love is wrong my love ain't going to pray

you didn't want to smoke you just wanted to stoke the fire and smother it and walk away

even though we barely know one another everything i do starts to smell a little like you

smother your man ladies and gentlemen cause all anybody knows is the meat's going rotten overnight



suicide note

your hands gets sore and your feet will blister you wore a mysterious sign saying you can't afford

six packs are bigger these days and it takes a few more to get the courage to say

you don't know the blues anyways not like i do

screaming, hold my tongue

as a pledge is sworn a body is worn how it works is or is it what it works for at the end of the day

with an altar to pray nothing gets done, always looking for shade

well you'll find your place somewhere underground

pleading, oh my son

let the words state all great people save your life in some way

let your accent thicken when you hit the stage

as for me i'm late as good as gone my seasons are straight and are no longer a weight upon me

breathing, as cold as done



that's me, my spirit animal

shunned doves cry whispers a little heart bleeds sheepishly

take the hand of a stranger god knows that i am so needy

it's the little light i've known shone upon my home

come sunlight come sunbeams

even if i believe that i belong i really know that it's not growing in me

there's poison in the water i'll swallow anything for free

the outcome is the answer everyone still shits downstream

it's the little light i've known shone upon my home

come sunlight come sunbeams

even if i believe that i belong i really know that it's not growing in me

killing what some have to say

preachy teacher of shame

everyone else is insane

you'll always find someone to blame

it's the little light i've known shone upon my home

come sunlight come sunbeams

even if i believe that i belong i really know that it's not growing in me



things

things i've had and i've things lost

things i've borrowed have their cost

to live and breathe and sweat can't we

a silent over simplified solid oath to reason why

your eyes are what's doing you in

and in the style by which you regret

but if only you'd smile instead

no one would know that you're really upset

things i've loved and things i hate

things i've learned to appreciate

like science and tea and babies can't we

the figures don't make sense to me

the only truth is spiralling away from me

your eyes are what's doing you in

and in the style by which you regret

but if only you'd smile instead

no one would know that you're really upset

kicking down the high road

the high road is a lonesome road

free your horse and walk em home

i like watching paint dry

i like highs like tie-dye

you opened up my made up mind

i tried to fight i tried to forget it

shaking the hour glass stand

i tried to regret but her palm was embedded

into the back of my hand

in her palm i am a cat

as allergenic as i can get

in my cat nip scented bad breath

no tickling toes it makes her scream

but as she laughs i feel really pleased

i find blushing between the seams

we're nested in nector under snow for the winter

as i drown down the river in flames

when our garden is buried drop your blood in the water

and the light of the moon shows the way

we lay under sheets so neat

as we try and fall asleep

but i can't fake sick so easily

so please don't leave me in my dreams

in my insecurities

in my needy shame on me

in the sun in our good signs

a single path between the lies

and we're dancing in the mud road

we're taking off all our clothes

and we're dancing in the mud road

i can feel it between my toes

we're kicking down the high road

the high road is a lonesome road

free your horse and walk her home



who is holier

you want any hope

a world eternal

who is older

who is holier

shaman woman likes samantabhadra man

these madness men can't look into eyes of woman

the saddest sadist sadness is the state of sad it's sad i'm sad

good times

having you on my mind

who can hold the most

who is holier

shaman woman likes samantabhadra man

these madness men can't look into eyes of woman

the saddest sadist status is the state of sad it's sad i'm sad

you may know

if you say so

but me unknown

woah is woah

you want any hope

a world eternal

who is older

who is holier



without and beyond

you can't get it wrong no matter how long you come from

my belly warm wine no belly bottom to my warm wine

hit bottom too many times i calloused anything that mattered to be mine

your hate is yours and it shines like a diamond but stings like despair

strutting along to whatever new song ignore the old blues and pretty girls rules

i can't get a light though no one will even look me in the eye

oh i've owed tomorrow

and oh i've just ignored it all

and oh i've let it sorrow

my baby is not coming home

can't get it wrong no matter how strong my reason is long

i hadn't a dream until you woke me up and off and out and on

without and beyond the feeling's not wrong but a fantasy gone wrong

sold a lie to believe a lie and i fought a while with no one

always moments behind the shadows faking at night there's nothing find in whatever your light

it's contextualized and broken bitten raw bitter black mold

oh i've owed tomorrow

and oh i've just ignored it all

and oh i've let it sorrow

my baby not coming home



words without music

i stole a part of you

i store it inside of me

i only go there sometimes

any time i need you to be there with me

this moment has reached its peak i'm born and old

time just whispers and fades i die alone it's what i own

whatever was clear whatever i feared i have nothing to behold

silence will bring my heart to ring and so i will sing along

stole a part of you

i store it inside of me

i only go there sometimes

any time i need you to be there with me

this idea i wove into the old man i've grown my eyelids are sewn

subdued he said will i understand or have i fallen to the ground instead

live in a painting hold on to old feelings even though they're dead

sing for a feeding words without meaning are the sores from the skin that i shed

stole a part of you

i store it inside of me

i only go there sometimes

any time i need you to be there with me

goodbye my mom i'm leaving this autumn

please don't wave to me i'm not waiting for you to call me home

the coward i am crowned me a man just with you i use my tone

pockets of sand fall through my hand as i wait here for you on my throne

my fate is fleeting

the water is breaking

the leaves have all fallen

my body is rotting to the bone

stole a part of you

i store it inside of me

i only go there sometimes

any time i need you to be there with me



you ain't gonna take me

you ain't gonna take me you ain't gonna take me alone

and i sold it all cause it doesn't mean a thing

i ain't gonna fake it i ain't gonna fake it

the cross is a loss and christ hangs like a dirty old stain

you ain't gonna take me you ain't gonna take me alone

i sold it all cause it doesn't mean a thing

i ain't gonna fake it i ain't gonna fake it

the cross is a loss and christ hangs like a dirty old stain



...

are we well

i got no time to waste so i'll just let it all out

i wish ya hell

i really can't complain cause i know what it's all about

don't think we can't tell

when we see the sun which way we wanna run

and something else

never am i over i am never really done

go fuck yourself

the anger has finally splintered to the cartridge and the gun

i fuck myself

never was an answer that i couldn't spray with come

i love myself

nothing else to imagine but transcending everyone

are we well
