Midnight From the Inside Out
You, with your fast and furlined mind
With your disregard of time, virtue, horizon
Here where the angels never sleep
Where the water's dark and deep
You breathe molasses

Chorus:
Midnight from the inside out
Turn around and they all fall down
Screaming red and the lights go out
Turn around and they all fall down

You, madness dripping from your tongue
While starting at the sun
You speak explosion
Up, with the flies around the moon
Needle, mirror, spoon and cotton candyback to top
Sting Me
Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your hearaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It's hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.

Are you wanting instiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breating?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.

Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shineback to top
Thick N Thin
Hey boys, buzzin' bee stingin'
Ringing ears never gonna' stop
Stand tall sickness creeping right on
Struttin' blues gonna' find me again

Got my head spinnin' round
Wonderin' when it's gonna stop
Got my head spinnin' round
Wonderin' when it's gonna stop

Out there, breeze is finally blowing
No tellin' when the train pulls in
My baby got her engine hummin'
Struttin' blues gonna' find me again

(Repeat Chorus 3 times)

Hey boys, hanging on the corner
Where you hidin' when the lights go dim
This thing lightin' got your thunder want to crack'n
Struttin' blues want to find me again

(Repeat Chorus 4 times)back to top
Greasy Grass River
Now I'm swimming in the greasy grass river
On my way to the black pearl sea
Yeah I'm floating down the greasy grass river
Come one child come with me
Life is so easy on greasy grass river
Just take my hand and we can pretend to be free
You wanna be
Free
Come on with me

Take me down to the greasy grass river
Wash my hands where the water is clean
Lay me down by the greasy grass river
And unfold my mystery
The greasy grass river has water that whispers
Let's listen closely while
She says she wants to be free
You wanna be
Free 
You know what I mean?

Outro:
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mind
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mind
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mind
I'm out of my pocket and I'm out on my mindback to top
Sometimes Salvation
If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You nave the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me waht you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting meback to top
Cursed Diamond
i lose myself,
i forget myself,
sometimes i fault myself,
yes, and i might fight myself,
but then i make ammends

i freeze myself,
i rain on myself,
ok, so i stoned myself,
i might even find myself,
but then what happens if i do?
so unzip my pride, baby open me up wide,
so i can show this to you

i want to shine for you,

just like a diamond cursed,
you love it don't get no worse,
you know that i'll save you time,
you jump around and smile,
hold me baby, hold me close,
hold me girl, and i will laugh with you,
i will laugh with you only if you want me to,
hold me in your splendor,
i'll envy your surrender,
and show me victory

well i hate myself,
and everybody hates themselves,
so i scare myself,
it's alright, i tell myself that it's all in my mind,
so let the poison go,
cause baby i'll always know, you'll be there for me

i want to shine for you,
babe i want to sparkel too,
just like a diamond cursed,
well you know it won't get no worse,
you know i'll save you time,
to jump around and smile,
hold me baby,
hold me girl,
and i'll laugh with you,
if you want me too,
hold me in splendor,
i envy your surrender,
and show me victory,

i want to shine for you,
i want to sparkle too,
i tell you just like a diamond cursed,
you know it won't get no worse,
you know i'll save you time,
to jump around and smile,

hold me baby,
hold me girl,
and i'll laugh with you,
laugh with you if you want me too,

i envy your surrender,
and show me victory.back to top
Miracle to Me
So come on off of your rooftop
Come on down to the street
I've got something to tell you
You're secret I will keep
Tell me why have you been crying
Why won't you look me in the eye
I'm just trying to help you
I just need to know why
Please won't you let me try

Chorus:
Be my secret, be my joy
Be a miracle to me
Be my lover, be my friend
Be a miracle to me

I want to sleep in your moonglow
In my mind you're smile I keep
Head over heels I go
Like a dream from a peaceful sleep
This time I know I'm in deep

Chorusback to top
Wiser Time
No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile
You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another read song
Funny but I bet you never left home
Chorus:
On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach
Seconds until sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

Girl from a Pawnshop
With a pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
she sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, should she leave town
To play the role of lover ex-patriot
A nod to the waiter,always her flirty behavior,
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter from a bag
Under her sweater and before she
reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number I never
lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
we'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter,one tear
falls like a feather and disappears
on this bar room floor
The gratuity included, you know
the letter concluded

P.S. All my loveback to top
Cosmic Friend
Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
It's not everlasting
It's bound to turn around
Need a little sweetness
A little reason to your rhyme
I got something for you
A little sugar for your mind
Hear the bells ringing
Send it down the line
Thank you for the sharing
I get you back next time

Chorus:
My friend the cosmos is calling
Sayin' we all should be shining

Don't you be a stranger
We like you hanging around
Be thankful of the laughter
Praise for the sound
When you're feelin lonely
You know just what to do
Put on track eleven
Get on with the groove

Chorus

Now we've reached the ending
I'm sad this song is gone
But we can start at the beginning
And we can all sing along

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
It's not everlasting
It's bound to turn aroundback to top
Black Moon Creeping
Oh good heavens, baby where's my medicine?
I must have left it outside with my etiquette
The undertaker's rule of thumb
It's hard to talk with a novocain tongue

This room smells like hotel illness
The scars I hide are now your business
I can't seem to make hair nor hide of this
No baby love is not a punishment.

Hypnotize by your rotten behavior
This week's fashion is last year's flavor
I got a head full of sermons and a mouth full of spiders
The politics of the world's greatest liar

So tell me baby is it true all those things that they say about you...back to top
She Talks to Angels
If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You nave the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing

Twice as Hard
I love you in the worst way
The only way I know
They say the cleareer the water
The more that it shows
They say the deeper the river
The stronger the love
Your eyes don't lie to me
And your smile is worth its weight in gold

Chorus

This Life, this life aches
and this life moans
This life is great, this life is great
And it's better when you're
not alone,
not alone

You love me in the worst way
The only way you know
They say the higher the mountain
The more love that grows
They say the stronger the wind blows
The farther we'll go
I hope you don't lie to me
There's nothing better than your
touch

How many times does this happen two people
like us meet
As I try to be humble and lay
down at your feetback to top
Lickin'
Your eyes they look like two bullet holes
And you don't ever say "maybe"
You knock me out with the way you talk
I like the way you say "baby"
You want a mouthful of scorpio
Yeah, but my poison be tasty
You bite my finger and say "control"
You won't let me be lazy

(Chorus)
Night and day like a mule I'm kickin'
Girl you gonna catch a lickin' yeah
(catch a lickin')
Night and day like a mule I'm kickin'
Girl you gonna catch a lickin' yeah

Fire out of the mouths of babes
Got you acting so crazy
The doorknob queen of the underage
You got me ranting and raving
I see the bruise you left on my page
And now the game gettin' tricky
So left alone in my own parade
While the bomb keeps on ticking yeah

(Chorus)

Do you want to do it all with me
Do you want to scream and bleed for me
You can have all of me, all of me.
Yeah.

Your teeth they taste just like razorblades
Yeah you got my tounge ready
You fill me up with your politics
Then you leave me so heavy

(Chorus)
(repeat)

Catch a lickin'
Catch a lickin'
Catch a lickin'
Catch a lickin'

Soul Singing
I've been down
Cascading and blue w/out a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk & honey
Lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Let's disappear and we'll hide underground
We'll get high and we'll feel safe & sound
It comes around Arayayayound

Chorus:
You got my soul singing my soul singing
You got my soul singing my soul singing
You got my soul singing my soul singing
You got my soul singing my soul singing

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life's a smile not a frown
The sound
The sound

Hard to Handle
Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You gotta' come back for more

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Hey little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now
Yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

Boys come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Hey little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now
Yes I am

Baby here I am
I'm the man on your scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You gotta' come back for more

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Hey little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle now
Yes I amback to top
Remedy
To lessen my troubles
I stopped hanging out with relatives
And empty saviours like you
I wish I had a nickel for every miracle
That you easily tricked me into

You can lead a horse to water
But faith is another matter
So don't you surrender
Cause sometimes salvation
In the eye of the storm

I've no time for accusations
Or conversations on all the bad, bad things you do.
Just a note from your jailor
Drugs and the relations
To all the people around you

You can lead a horse to water
But faith is another matter
So don't you surrender
Cause sometimes salvation
In the eye of the storm

I've kept secret your superstitions
And all its twisted wisdom
That I fell into

Sister can you try and find me?back to top
