Easy Tonight
You were wrong
You were right
You are gone
Tonight
You were free
So alive
You were wrong
You were right
You were down
You could see
You wore hearts for me
You were sharp
Sharp as knives
You were wrong
You were right

Shot down¡­ said you never had the chance
Took a ride on a suicide romance
Could have sworn there was somebody home
To facilitate the great unknown
Woman, I ain't going to meet you anywhere
Don't know where I'm going yet¡­
But I sure am getting there
Shotgun fire¡­ anybody home
I got two dimes in the telephone
Alright¡­
It's not easy tonight

You were bound
You were free
You wear black for me
You were dark
Dark as night
You were wrong
You were right

Shot down¡­ said you never had the chance
Took a ride on a suicide romance
Could have sworn there was somebody home
To facilitate the great unknown
But woman, I ain't going to meet you anywhere
Don't know where I'm going yet¡­but I sure am getting there

Shotgun fire¡­ anybody home
I got two dimes in the telephone
Alright¡­ it's not easy tonight

She's in.
Over my head¡­and it's not easy it's not easy tonight

Shotgun fire¡­ anybody home
I got two dimes in the telephone
Alright¡­ it's not easy tonight

You were free¡­
Now your not¡­
You were freeback to top
Bloody Mary (A Note on Apathy)
Over by the still she says,
"Man I think you better wait for tomorrow!
Take this pillow for your head
And I'll take you."

Back against the beast I went
To feel her coming, hot for a follow up
Here comes the sun again…(to see me through)

On and on she takes me from you, my love
On and on she rakes me from you

Happily I leave her fed
Tonight I swear, I swear on tomorrow…(wait)
Here comes the sun again
To see me through…

On and on she takes me from you, my love
On and on she rakes me from you

Bloody Mary's for all…
Bloody Mary's for all…

On and on she takes me from you, my love
On and on she rakes me from you

All of my dreams for you…to follow
All of my dreams for you…to swallow
All of my dreams for you…back to top
Superman (It's Not Easy)
I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird...I'm more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It's not easy to be me

Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd...but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed...but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
It's not easy to be me

Up, up and away...away from me
It's all right...you can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy...or anything...

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me
Inside me
Yeah, inside me
Inside of me

I'm only a man
In a funny red sheet
I'm only a man
Looking for a dream

I'm only a man
In a funny red sheet
And it's not easy, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm...

Its not easy to be meback to top
America Town
I know I should be happy in your land
It's not all that wild to me
Not that I want to be any other where
I know it's hell out there

Here in the borders of america town
All of the dollies are spinning round and round
Hail to the chief
Lets just drag them all down
There's got to be a hero somewhere

Used to get annoyed at the fire and the flag
Now it just seems old to me
(everyone is old to me)

And I know we'd kick your ass
But first I'll take a nap tonight
And know someone's looking out for me

Here in the borders of america town
All of the dollies are spinning round and round
Hail to the chief
Lets just drag them all down
There's got to be a hero somewhere

I tried it
I've seen it
I bought it all

Not that I'm upset
I can still make my bet on the basketball game
And I got my spare change
I'm even o.k. with the hoodlums on the hill
They're in my will
Like her and you
Whom and who
In america town
We all spin around
In america town
I'm really not down¡­
We all spin around
In america town
America town

Something About You
I don't know where to begin
I don't know how to get out there to see you
I don't know where to dig in.
I don't know how to get in there¡­to feel you

It's been to long and I'm about to be in time for me
It's been to long and I'm in time

Baby there's something about you that
I can hold on to
I'm going to hold on to that
Baby there's something about you that
I can hold on to
I'm going to hold on to that

I never thought I would win
I never thought much about that.
(it's been a long time coming)
I never stopped to begin
Thinking about the process.
(it's been a long time coming)

It's been to long and I'm about to be in time for me
It's been to long and I'm in time

Baby there's something about you that
I can hold on to
I'm going to hold on to that
Baby there's something about you that
I can hold on to
I'm going to hold on to that

I don't know where to begin
I don't know how to get out there to see you

Baby there's something about you that
I can hold on to
I'm going to hold on to that
Baby there's something about you that
I can hold on to
I'm going to hold on to that

It's been a long time coming
I'm going to hold on to that

And I'm going to be there¡­be there¡­alrightback to top
Jainy
Jainy sells for three dimes a night
Morning helps her find her way blind
And I love her more than I can tell
Heaven help me now
Seems I found to find her just as well¡­

Jainy yea¡­

Jainy takes me three times a night
Morning saves me and I find my way blind
And she loves me more than she can tell
Heaven help her now
Seems she's found to find me just as well

Jainy yea¡­
Jainy yea¡­

Jainy stares at stars every night
Morning takes her eyes every time
And she'll love you more than you can tell
Heaven help us now
Seems you've finally found us¡­ just as well¡­

She'll be all right

Michael Jordan
My shirt, my hat, my books
A trip to the zoo
My couch, remote, a large coke yea
I'd get on my knees, my god
If I could

I would give anything
To be you

My job, my car, my cash
My house on the hill
My piano I'd burn to ashes (yea)
I'd get on my knees, my god
If I could

I would give anything
To be you

My voice, my worm, my wife
A first born or two
I'd give the knife, my mike if just
Cut me at the knees
My God (my jordan)

I would give anything
I would give to
Be

Out of Love
I'm out of love again
And I need anyone
I'm out of love again
And I need everyone
I'm out. I'm in again
And I need some love
I'm out of touch again
And I need you babe

I'm out of love again
But I got your stuff
I'm out of love again
But I got your love

I'm out of wack again
And I need soft heat
I'm down to far too bend
And I need something sweet

I'm out of love again
But I got your stuff
I'm out of love again
But I got your love
I'm out of love again
But I got your stuff

People in my life¡­you're the one
Of people in my life you're the one

I'm out of love again
But I got your love
I'm out of love again
But I got your stuff
I'm out of love again
But I got your love

I'm out of love again
Not while you're by my sideback to top
The Last Great American
Mr. merry cries in his coffin
For days he says he can remember
And through the town the pallbearers sing old songs
Of a beautiful purple mountain
From every walk of life we've come to see the last great american

May I now present you the speaker,
¡±friends he was a man of men, a man of gold¡­
He had a how do you say, ethical like sense¡±
That's when the president started to giggle
And the children gave the blessing
Though the service weren't half done
Each of them sued the other one
For the last great american

Merry reaches up, we bow our heads
He pulls the lid on down and his stone is read

Here lies our merry
The man with the heart so spent
That in this day and age
Is sick of living

And judges argue letters
Fabric comes undone
For every daughter every son
Of the last great american¡­

For every daughter every son
Of the last great american¡­back to top
Love Song
Put away your tears and your sleepy eyes
Put away that bullshit, big boys they don't cry to their mama's
¡­she'll be back soon
Put away your raincoat and make your bed
Take another bullet right to your head
We're going on a picnic and we'll get there soon

She says¡­maybe it's over
He say's¡­ there's plenty more fish in the sea
I say¡­ don't go away from me¡­

Put away your dinner and have a snack
Tie your little brother up in a sack now
We're moving to the country and we'll get there soon (she says)

Pack up all the things that you don't deserve
Take another swing¡­ here comes a curve ball
I bet you can't hit it cause you'll swing to soon

She says¡­maybe it's over
He say's¡­ there's plenty more fish in the sea
I say¡­ don't go away¡­
Don't go away
Please don't go away from me¡­

Take those damn pictures off that shelf
Put away your mommy you don't need her
I found you a new one¡­ she'll be here soon

She says¡­my God it's over
He say's¡­ I found another fish in the sea
I say¡­ why me?
Why me?
Why me?
Why is it me?back to top
Boat Parade
There's a crack in the hull
Where the penitents used to live
There's a crack in the hull
Where the penitents used to live
And we can make it right if we row all night
Give all that we can give
There's a crack in the hull
Where the penitents used to live

There's a leak in the hold
Where the infantry used to sleep
There's a leak in the hold
Where the infantry used to sleep
And we can make it right if we roll all night
Baby dust off your knees
There's a leak in the hold
Where the infantry used to be

Little monsters (on the table)
Crazies here to play
Little monsters in the boat parade

There's a hole in the hat
Where the captain kept his dreams
There's a hole in the hat
Where the captain kept his dreams
And we can make it right
If we sail all night
Better pray for a breeze
There's a hole in the hat
Where the captain used to beback to top
Alright
I took her leaving like I did before
I turned around and I asked for more
And she didn't even mean a thing to me

I left my spirit at the chapel door
I sailed around til I lost the war
And you didn't even think to send a thing

But I'm alright, alright, I feel alright
I never been better in my life
You know the score

I'm just fine, I'm fine, feeling fine
A regular sawed off valentine
That nothing more

I hit my head upon the chamber door
And all the marbles rolled on the floor
And all the psychos in the ward start screaming¡­

I'm alright, alright, I feel alright
I never been better in my life
You know the score

I'm just fine, I'm fine, feeling fine
A regular sawed off valentine
That nothing more

My baby

I'm alright, alright, I feel alright
I never been better in my life
You know the score

I'm just fine, I'm fine, feeling fine
A regular sawed off valentine
That nothing moreback to top
Do You Mind
Do you mind if I ask you a question
Do you mind if I swear not to hurt you
Do you mind if I don't piss on your bed

Do you mind if I bring her still with me
Do you mind if I forget and thank you
Do you mind if I juggle the meaning

Do you care that I only wear silver
Do you care that set only stone
Are you angry the you I'm adopting
Is only a pretense at home

Do you mind if I make you wear earrings
Like she did, like you did before
Do you mind for I think I still love you
Do you mind
Always have
Evermoreback to top
