Water's Edge
"Don't go there" I heard her say
"You can't stomach what you're going to see"
It's down there, by the water's edge
Wasted and bloated and waiting for someone else

Funny how, these things come about
When you're tied to the teeth and mouth
No sound or fury, no shot of pain
There was no real reason, no gain

I can't go down, to the water's edge
I didn't do it, I saw who did it
Don't go down, to the water's edge
They did it once and they can do it again

It ain't no secret to me
How she got there down by the stream
'Cause I'd seen her a minute before
The van pulled up and opened the door (took all my love)

I can't say a single word
About what I saw of her
Her killers, they got their friends
In familiar places, I tell you man

I can't go down, to the water's edge
I didn't do it, I saw who did it
Don't go down, to the water's edge
They did it once and they can do it again

This ain't no fucking game
And I'm feeling so ashamed
Because I didn't do anything
No I didn't do anything
To stop
To stop
To stop
To stop
This... from... happening
I... didn't do... anything

"Don't go down to the water's edge" she said to me
I didn't do it, but I saw who did it (see)
Don't go down to the water's edge
They did it once, they can do it again

I swear
I swear
I swear
I swear

I didn't do... a thing
I should have done... somethingback to top
Cumbersome
She calls me Goliath and I wear the David mask
I guess the stones are coming too fast for her now
You know I'd like to believe this nervousness will pass
All the stones that are thrown are building up a wall

I have become cumbersome... to this world
I have become cumbersome... to my girl

I'd like to believe we could reconcile the past
Resurrect those bridges with an ancient glance
But my old stone face can't seem to break her down
She remembers bridges, burns them to the ground

I have become cumbersome... to this world
I have become cumbersome... to my girl

Too heavy too light
Too black or too white
Too wrong or too right
Today or tonite... cumbersome
Too rich or too poor
She's wanting me less
And I'm wanting her more
The bitter taste is cumbersome

No, yeah! No, no, no!
No, no, no! Yeah!

There is a balance between two worlds
One with an arrow and a cross
Regardless of the balance
Life has become... cumbersome

Too heavy too light
Too black or too white
Too wrong or too right
Today or tonite... cumbersome
Too rich or too poor
She's wanting me less
And I'm wanting her more
The bitter taste is cumbersome

No, yeah! No, no, no!
No, no, no! Yeah!
No, no, no! No, yeah!
Your life has become combersome...back to top
Roderigo
"He's a real cannibal" she goes
"I think I'll call him Roderigo"
Dress him up in darker clothes, sell him away
Standing underneath her gun
"Sit up straight or I'll hurt you"
You know he's not her only son, just the strongest

Tied him down to her tree
Stayed fit to name him what's he's gonna be
Tied him up with her rope
You know it stained her neck but it can't hold Roderigo

"I'm the real animal," she goes
She wants to call me Roderigo
Tie me down with all her rope, until I can't breathe
She can't help but beat me down
Into a brand new Roderigo
I'll slip away without a sound, into the air

Tied me down to her tree
Stayed fit to name me what I'm gonna be
Tied me up with her rope
You know it stained her neck but it can't hold Roderigo

Tied me down to her tree
Stayed fit to name me what I'm gonna be
Tied me up with her rope
You know it stained her neck but it can't hold Roderigoback to top
Devil Boy
I slept through Easter yesterday
Right through Christmas just the same
The priest came up to me all up in arms
He said: "Devil boy, what have you done?"

Hey devil boy
We're gonna blow you're house in
Hey devil boy
What do you think of that?

For heaven's sakes
It's only been 2000 years
I can't wait any longer for you

The Jesuits rolled in their tanks to my front door
While the Capuchins held a love-in on my front porch
The Augustinians kept to themselves, stuck their tongues out in a row
They said, "Devil boy, it's off to hell you go!"

Hey devil boy
We're gonna blow you're house in
Hey devil boy
What do you think of that?

For heaven's sakes
It's only been 2000 years
I can't wait any longer for you

Ans so I'll sit and pray for her to call me there
And I'll burn that bridge a 1000 times, on the cross I bear
Just to wonder if you're listening from a soap box in the sky
To finally realize my price, was it you or I?

Hey devil boy
We're gonna blow you're house in
Hey devil boy
What do you think of that?

For heaven's sakes
It's only been 2000 years
I can't wait any longer for you

For heaven's sakes
I'd give away eternity
If you would come back to me, if you would come back to me
If you would come back to me, if you would come back to meback to top
My My
"My my stomach hurts again tonite" she says
Crashes on her floor
Cuts what she can't untie
Ties it to a door
And if mercy was a cattle call
She didn't hear
She didn't want to play the role of the fool again
Won't be fooled again

Indifference... as my witness
And I think she'd take me back
She tears down my front door just to... see my photograph

"My my head is getting so confused" she says
What's she trying to do to me?
Put my sticker on her car
Bought a CD
If mercy was a cattle call
She didn't hear
She didn't want to play the role of the fool again
Won't be fooled again

Indifference... as my witness
And I think she'd take me back
She tears down my front door just to... hear my phonograph

It spins...
"I ain't too proud to beg sweet darlin
Don't you leave my baby don't you go
I ain't too proud to beg sweet darlin
Don't you leave me"

"My my skin can't take much more of this" she says
You're scaling over me
Every time I wash it off, I find you underneath
And if mercy was a cattle call
She didn't hear...
She didn't want to play the role of the fool again
Won't be fooled again...back to top
Lame
There's a tall, a mulatto, boy I know
And he comes to every party... he stands alone
Viewing them the rest, the corner of his glance
It gets so clear, he's not judging... anyone
The way his arms float around his cage, he's caged
Canary sings, silently brings, his voice to rage
The way they stop and stare, the way they turn their heads
It's enough to make him want to run away
But he stays he stands his ground

And I'm...
I'm so... damn lame
The way I condescend without ever knowing his name
He keeps it in a box, hangs it from his ear
Looks at everyone wihtout the slightest fear
It's making me... so ashamed

Slender body, slip through his glance
I don't give it a single chance
The way he's rocking back and forth
Makes a buzzing in my ear
Constantly reminding me that I never stop to hear
Him say hello, hello

And I'm...
I'm so... damn lame
Like a moth, bumping off... his godless flame
I cannot condescend or even apprehend, what comes over me
When I see his... shameless face

So rage, please rage, against me
Beat me down, beat me down
Forgive me for what I've done
I'm so lame, I'm so lame, I'm so lame
So lame, so... so... lameback to top
Headstrong
Headstrong is willing to live like a rat in a hole
Headstrong unwilling to listen to anyone at all
Keeps her head above the water
Keeps her head upon her shoulders
I know, I know, I know she has heard this all before
She don't break, she don't sink, don't think, don't think a thing... of me

Headstrong can fake an awkwardness
Silenced by the price of love
Don't get too close in case, push comes to shove
Won't be your favorite girl, won't hear our favorite song
She's heard that song before

I don't mind
She knows the words I'm writing
We all need some pain
And remember
What you told me
We all bleed the same

Headstrong is making a list so long
Of all the people she has done and undone again, my name engraved
She doesn't notice the things that I take for granted
Were my own to give, my own to give and take
She don't break, she don't sink don't think
Don't want to give or take my love, don't break, don't sink, don't think... of me

Anything
Indivisible... you are the one
Impossible to hear what you say to me at night
Can I have some covers back? It's so cold
On the wrong side of the bed
Are you awake, are you aware, are you anything?
Pictures high, high above the shelf
Letters from me to you, you to me, us to them
Do they express? Do they say anything? Anything at all?

I know I'm not the man of her dreams
Daddy said she'd marry rich, rich, richer than me
I know I'm not her man, but she could take anything...
Anything she wants
Anything at all

Do you think it's just enough to know
How I wanted you to feel
Read things back to me, back up
To see from where I am
There is nothing more than this... more than this
Is it enough to say that I want you
To keep it close to me
Me, me is all I think... think about, but every word you say
Do I mean anything?

I know I'm not the man of her dreams
Daddy said she'd marry rich, rich, richer than me
I know I'm not her man, but she could take anything...
Anything she wants
Anything at all

Anything she wants
Anything at all?back to top
Margeret
"Margaret came to me" was all he said
Before she knew my name she was in my bed
She was only... sweet sixteen
20,000 days younger than me

"Marry me" she said I don't reply
"Daddy said you better, or you'll die"
She wants a house and fifteen kids I guess (She does, my love)
And I can't find a state we're legal in

Margaret... Margaret... Margaret... Margaret

Margaret feels the world beneath her feet
Shaking like a leaf falls from the tree
She don't care he's ten years older than me
As long as they're together happily (She says they will)

"Marry me" she said I don't reply
"Daddy said you better, or you'll die"
She wants a house and fifteen kids I guess (She does, my love)
And I can't find a state we're legal in

Margaret... Margaret... Margaret... Margaret

She was only... sweet sixteen

10: Punch In Punch Out
I wake up
To beat the sun... from her glory
I'm only
One cigarette
Away from mobility
It's always
Punch in punch out
Go to work and go back home
There's only
One chance left
And I know
And I know
Where she is waiting

I wake up
To beat the sun from her glory
I'm only one cigarette away from mobility
It's always
Punch in punch out
Go to work and go back home
There's only one chance left
And I know where she is waiting

Favorite Dog
That's my other hand, open and empty
It wants one too I guess
That's my other jaw, swollen and shameless
It talks too much I know
And another singer is born, with every sip I take
Drain away my words, just like they were my flesh and bone
And they're barking at me, yeah they're working on me
Just like my favorite dog

Geronimo
Yeah, look out below
I love that rusty water like it was my favorite dog
Geronimo
Yeah, look out below
I love that rusty water like it was my favorite dog

That's my other head, open and bleeding
It thinks too much I guess
That's my other eye, swollen but fearless
It's seen too much, I know
And another singer is killed with every sip I take
Drain away my words, just like they were my flesh and bone
And they're barking at me, yeah they're working on me
Just like my favorite dog

Geronimo
Yeah, look out below
I love that rusty water like it was my favorite dog
Geronimo
Yeah, look out below
I love that rusty water like it was my favorite dog
Geronimo
Yeah, look out below
I love that rusty water like it was my favorite dogback to top
