Satan Is My Motor
I've got wheels of polished steel
I've got tires that grab the road
I've got seats that selflessly hold my friends
And a trunk that can carry the heaviest of loads

I've got a mind that can steer me to your house
And a heart that can bring you red flowers
My intentions are good and earnest and true
But under my hood is internal combustion
Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is the only one who seems to understand
Satan is my motor

I've got brakes
I'm wide awake
I can stop this car at any time
At the very last second I can change directions
Turn completely around if I feel so inclined

I've got a mind that can steer me to your house
And a heart that can bring you red flowers
My intentions are good and earnest and true
But under my hood is internal combustion

Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is my motor
Hear my motor purr
Satan is the only one who seems to understand
Satan is my motor
Satan is the only one who seems to understandback to top
Mexico
I had a match, but she had a lighter
I had a flame, but she had a fire
I was bright, but she was much brighter
I was high, but she was the sky
Oh baby, I was bound for mexico
Oh baby, I was bound to let you go

I don't know much about cinco de mayo
I'm never sure what it's all about
I say I want you, and you don't believe me
You say you want me, but I've got my doubts

Oh baby, I was bound for mexico
Oh baby, I was bound to let you go

I had a match, but she had a lighter
I had a flame, but she had a fire
I was bright, but she was much brighter
I was high, but she was the sky
Oh baby, I was bound for mexico
Oh baby, I was bound to let you goback to top
Never There
I need your arms around me, I need to feel your touch
I need your understanding, I need your love so much
You tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
But when I need you baby, you're never there

On the phone long, long distance
Always through such strong resistance
First you say you're too busy
I wonder if you even miss me

Never there
You're never there
You're never, ever, ever, ever there

A golden bird that flies away, a candle's fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game
A golden bird that flies away, a candle's fickle flame
To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game

You tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
But when I need you baby
Take the time to get to know me
If you want me why can't you just show me
We're always on this roller coaster
If you want me why can't you get closer?

Never there
You're never there
You're never ever ever ever thereback to top
Guitar
I'm sitting by the window of your thirty-second floor apartment
Waiting for your phone calls all to end
I'm sitting watching wind blow
Watching time go
Watching cars go by
I'm waiting for these memories to begin

If I threw my guitar
Out the window, so far down
Would I start to regret it
Or would I smile and watch it slowly fall?

Garbage trucks and taxi cabs
Don't seem like they can reach me here
The clamor of jack-hammers seems so faint
The way you treat me like the only
Slightly brings me down a lot
I don't think I'll ever be the same

If I threw my guitar
Out the window, so far down
Would I start to regret it
Or would I smile and watch it slowly fall?back to top
You Turn the Screws
You turn the screws,
You tear down the bridge,
Flimsy as it is,
It's business like,

You shake my hand,
You break up the band,
Flimsy as it is,
It's open mike,

Punk rock,
Red white and blue,

You twist the knife,
Then go home to kiss your wife,
A bigger better slice,
Is what you like,

You kick the sand,
You get the upper hand,
You sell it to Japan,
It's natural,

Punk rock,
Red white and blue,

You turn the screws,
It's what you choose to do,
You think that I,
Must turn them too,

You think that I,
Must be so satisfied,
I stay inside,
I wonder why,

And the cement,
Makes or gets him, already,
One good time at a time,

They're pouring it slowly and steady,
You're showing me where I can sign,
What I can expect to find,

But how can you say,
You'll be happy,
When you turn the screws,

You turn the screws,
Is what you choose to do,
You turn the screws,
Is what you choose to do,

You think that I,
Must turn them too,

You turn the screws,
Is what you choose to do,
You turn the screws,
Is what you choose to do,

You turn the screws...back to top
Walk on By
Walk on by the house where you still live
Walk on by the place where we would kiss
And the room where I held you tight
Tonight I must walk on by

Walk on by the room where you still sleep
Walk on by the company that you keep
And the room where I held you tight
Tonight I must walk on by

Somehow I know
I won't forget you, no, no, no, no, no, I won't
You won't forget me, no, no, no, no, no, you won't
I'll keep on walking away from here
I'll forget you when I reach the other side

Walk on by the house where you still live
Walk on by the place where we would kiss
And the room where I held you tight
Tonight I must walk on byback to top
Sheep Go to Heaven
I'm not feeling alright today
I'm not feeling that great
I'm not catching on fire today
Love has started to fade
I'm not going to smile today
I'm not gonna laugh
You're out living it up today
I've got dues to pay

And the grave-digger puts on the forceps
The stone mason does all the work
The barber can give you a haircut
The carpenter can take you out to lunch

I just want to play on my pan-pipes
I just want to drink me some wine
As soon as your born you start dying
So you might as well have a good time

Sheep go to heaven
Goats go to hell

I don't wanna go to sunset strip
I don't wanna feel the emptiness
Bold marquees with stupid band names
I don't wanna go to sunset strip

And the grave-digger puts on the forceps
The stone mason does all the work
The barber can give you a haircut
The carpenter can take you out to lunch

I just want to play on my pan-pipes
I just want to drink me some wine
As soon as your born you start dying
So you might as well have a good time

Sheep go to heaven
Goats go to hellback to top
When You Sleep
When you sleep where do your fingers go?
What do your fingers know
What do your fingers show
Where do your fingers go

When you sleep
Do they tremble on the edge of the bed
Or do you fold them neatly by your head
Do they clench like claws against your own skin
When you're living your day al over again

When you sleep
When you sleep where do your fingers go?
What do your fingers know
What do your fingers show
Where do your fingers go

Do they play guitar in a latin bar
Are they strangers or lovers
Do they drive your car
Are they swimming submissively
Sex acts of life
Or just cutting through jello with a very sharp knife

Now zeus was a womanizer
Always on the make
But hera usually punished her that zeus was one to take

When you sleep where do your fingers go?
Are they pulling out weeds from the dusty soil
But then never rewarded with the fruits of their toil
Are they scratching their nails on the chalkboards of death
Only seeking attention when everyone in the room has left

When you sleep
When you sleep where do your fingers go?
What do your fingers know
What do your fingers show
Where do your fingers go

When you sleep

Do they tremble on the edge of the bed

Or do you fold them neatly by your headback to top
Hem of Your Garment
I am intrinsically no good
I have a heart that's made of wood
I am only biding time
Only reciting memorized lines
And I'm not fit to touch
The hem of your garment

No, no I'm not fit to touch the hem of your garment

I have no love but only goals
How very empty is my soul
It is a soul that feels no thrill
A soul that could easily kill
And I'm not fit to touch
The hem of your garment

No, no I'm not fit to touch the hem of your garment

I am intrinsically no good
I have a heart that's made of wood
I am only biding time
Only reciting memorized lines
And I'm not fit to touch
The hem of your garment

I am intrinsically no good
I have a heart that's made of wood
I am only biding time
Only reciting memorized lines
And I'm not fit to touch
The hem of your garment

No, no I'm not fit to touch the hem of your garment
The hem of your garmentback to top
Alpha Beta Parking Lot
Standing in the alpha beta parking lot
Watching the sun set
I'll never forget
Watching all the reds and oranges slip away
Letting go of yet another dirty day

Breathing in the fumes from so many idling cars
Right beneath the sign w/ the dusty yellow stars
Watching the sun go down

Standing in the alpha beta parking lot
Watching you leave me
Not quite believing

Standing in the alpha beta parking lot
Watching the sun set
I'll never forget
Breathing in the fumes from so many idling cars
Right beneath the sign w/ the dusty yellow stars
Watching the sun go downback to top
Let Me Go
When she walks
She swings her arms, instead of her hips
When she talks she moves her mouth, instead of her lips
I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

Let me go, she said
Let me go, she said
Let me go and I will want you more
Let me go, let me go
Let me go and I will want you

When she wants
She wants the sun instead of the moon
When she sees
She sees the stars inside of her room
I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

Let me go, she said
Let me go, she said
Let me go and I will want you more
Let me go, she said
Let me go
Let me go, and I will want you

Let me go, she said
Let me go, she said
Let me go, she said
Let me go, let me goback to top
Cool Blue Reason
Cool blue reason empties on the page
Your colleagues are in prison and your enemies enraged
Cool blue reason comes into your world
There's two more dead in texas and it's probably your girls
Cool blue reason wraps around your throat
The minutes change like seasons
Only 8 more hours to go

Cool blue reason comes into your life
There's one more dead in kansas and it's probably your wife
Cool blue reason I'm just talking to myself
Cool blue reason I'm just rearranging hell
I'm just talking to myself

Cool blue reason wraps around your throat
The minutes change likes seasons
Only 8 more hours to goback to top
Where Would I Be?
I've been waiting for so long
I've been hoping your love's not gone
Houses are sliding in the mud
Rivers are raging in your blood

Where would I be wihout your love?
Where would I be without your arms around me?

You were to be the only one
If I knew you I would not run
You have been cloudy, distant, dark
I'm thinking of noah and the ark

Where would I be without your love?
Where would I be without your arms around me?back to top
