Table For Glasses
Sweep the dirty stairs, the ones I waited on.
This is just for me.
I felt it watching her.
It happens too fast to make sense of it.
To make it last.
Where do you intend to go with your dirty dress?
Lead my skeptic sight to the table and the light.
It happened too fast to make sense of it.
To make it last.
Not asking of me anything, saying nothing about what it means,
without anybody telling me how I should feel,
lead my skeptic sight.

Lucky Denver Mint
This time it's on my own.
Minutes from somewhere else.
Somewhere I made a wish with Lucky Denver Mint.

Chorus:
You're not bigger than this, not better.
Why can't you learn.

Hurry go on ahead.
Good things won't let you wait.
I'll catch up when we get home.
At home I'll leave.
A dollar under water keeps on dreaming for me.

Your New Aesthetic
For your time its written out.
Work means nothing by itself.
These days are numbered, I can tell.
Until the crash I'll write you down.
Selection kills the old.
Selection breathes on its own.
Sing while you can.
Now, while you can.back to top
Believe In What You Want
Don't bother going through your motions.
Nothing that makes sense ever works out.
Don't kid yourself, you know they want money.
Nothing can be good on its own merit.
Put your trust in simple acts.
Make the flyers get them up all over town.
Don't kid yourself, you know they want money.
Please keep in sight what makes you care.
You have it always.
Spinning and spinning.
Dancing in plastic, shake-up snow.
Do you believe in what you want?
Your camera flash.
On us, meaningless.
You cannot waste a single night.
What you ignore is priceless to me.back to top
A Sunday
On a Sunday I'll think it through.
On the drive back I'll think it through.
What you wish for won't come true.
Live with that.
On a Sunday she thought it through.
Now as I drive back, there's thiry-six less hours I have to change
the course I send myself.
Live with that.
On a Sunday go once around.
Because when the rides done, the hopes that you have carried,
they fall out from your hands back to the ground.
Live with that.
Learn as the drugs leave.
Learn as you lose it.
You will.
The haze clears from your eyes on a Sunday.back to top
Crush
Faintest snow keep falling.
Hands around your waste.
Nameless, standing cold.
Take in restraint like a breath.
My lungs are so numb from holding back.
Walk close to the fence.
Feel it hit your clothes.
Turn and smile nice.
Smile say goodnight.
Say goodnight in a breath.
Simple discourse breaks you clean in half.
Regret.
Do try it once and then you know.
Your move.
Settle for nothing less again.back to top
12.23.95
Didn't mean to leave you hanging on, all alone.
Merry Christmas baby.back to top
Ten
We left behind the busy crowd.
So it seems we slow down.
Meet me with a way out through the lies.
Nowhere, going nowhere in the fake yellow light.
The feelings change so fast.
Safety scares them away.
I can't bring myself to say it's my own advice I need.
Nowhere and then nowhere.
Living trapped inside the chase.
Our weekness is the same.
We need poison sometimes.
So take another drink with me.
Blame no one.
Look in my eyes and blame no one.back to top
Just Watch The Fireworks
Here you can be anything
Anything that scares you
I think that scares you
Here, i've been here before
But only by myself
Myself
I promised I'd see it again
I promised I'd see this with you now
I promised I'd see it again
I promised I'd see this with you now
What giving up gives you
And where giving up takes you
I've had and I've been
Here in center frame
Here there's only air
And just enough space to fit
I promised I'd see it again
I promised I'd see this with you now
I promised I'd see it again
I promised I'd see this with you now
I said, said, said it out loud over and over
I said, said, said it out loud but what do I know?
I said, said, said it out loud over and over
I said, said, said it out loud over and over
I said, said, said it out loud but it did not help
I'll stop now
Just enough so I can hear you
I stay up as late as it takes
I promised I'd see it again
I promised I'd see this with you now
I promised I'd see it again
I promised I'd see this with you now
I said, said, said it out loud over and over
I said, said, said it out loud but it did not help
I'll stop now
Just enough so I can hear you
I stay up as late as it takes
I stay up as late as it takes
Stay up as late as it takes
As long as it takes
As long as it takes
As long as it takes
I stay up as late as it takes
As long it takesback to top
For Me This Is Heaven
The first star I see may not be a star.
We can't do a thing but wait.
So let's wait for one more.
The time such clumsy time in deciding if it's time.
I'm careful but not sure how it goes.
You can loose yourself in your courage.
The mindless comfort grows when I'm alone with my 'great' plans.
This is what she says gets her through it:
"If I don't let myself by happy now then when?"
If not now when?
When the time we have now ends.
When the big hand goes round again.
Can you still feel the butterflies?
Can you still hear the last goodnight?
Close my eyes and believe wherever you are, an angel for me.back to top
Blister
Take advantage of these times, you said.
You let me down.
It hasn't been the first time.
As I'm falling in the pit of fire my mind's made up.
I'm never coming back here.
How long would it take me to walk across the United States all alone.
The West coast has been traumatized.
I think I'm the only one still alive.
Is it just a coincidence to see you by yourself with no direction.
Now it's time to move on.
Don't you know that things aren't getting better.
Don't try and stop me.
Because I'm falling fast into this pit of fire which surrounds us all.
In a blanket of fear that I've been wrapped in for years.
You can't stop me.
When the world caves in what are you going to do for me.back to top
Clarity
I'll take your words, as if you were talking to me
So say, what I know you'll say, say it through your teeth
Now in the deep and down your heart moves
Now in the deep and down, I don't know how but I know I want out
Wait for something better
Will I know when it can be us?
Wait for something better
Maybe that doesn't mean us
Wait for something better?
I shouldn't, it's not enough
Pull one excuse from another
And with pride, keep every failure in
And with pride hold on to the sinking
Now in the deep and down, your heart moves
Now in the deep and down, I don't know how but I know I want out
Wait for something better
Will I know when it can be us?
Wait for something better
Maybe that doesn't mean us
Wait for something better
I shouldn't, it's not enough
Pull one excuse from another
This time it means us, stopback to top
Goodbye Sky Harbor
INTRO
VERSE

is tomorrow just a day like all the rest'
(how could you know just what you did?)
like all the rest
(how could you know just what you did?)
so full of faith yet full of doubt i ask

CHORUS

again
i shall ask you this once again
he said: 'i am but one small instrument'
do you remember that?

VERSE

time and time again you said don't be afraid
('if you believe then you can do it')
don't be afraid
('if you believe then you can do it')
the only voice i want to hear is yours

CHORUS

again
i shall ask you this once again
he said: 'i am but one small instrument'

BRIDGE

so here i am above palm trees so straight and tall
you are smaller, getting smaller
but i still see you

OUTRO
