Maybe Angels
Six-lane highway running up to my back door
But it won't take me where I want to be
I took the i-95 down to pensacola
All I found was a bunch of holyrollers
The don't know nothing 'bout saving me

[chorus]
I swear they're out there,
I swear, I swear they're out there,
I swear, I swear they're out there,
I swear, maybe angels, maybe angels

Down here I feel like a citizen of nowhere
My bag's all packed in case they ever come for me
Got a hundred stories and tabloid lies
Got witnesses to what the goverment denies
So I'm headed down to roswell to wait and see

[chorus]

Oh what a mystery
Oh, I believe, I believe, I could leave

My sister, she says she knows elvis
She knows jesus, john lennon, and cobain personally
Well, but I'm too wise to believe my eyes
Cause all I've seen just terrifies me
But I believe they're coming back for me

A Change Would Do You Good
Ten years living in a paper bag
Feedback baby, he's a flipped out cat
He's a platinum canary, drinkin' falstaff beer
Mercedes rule, and a rented lear
Bottom feeder insincere
Prophet lo-fi pioneer
Sell the house and go to school
Get a young girlfriend, daddy's jewel

A change would do you good
A change would do you good

God's little gift is on the rag
Poster girl posing in a fashion mag
Canine, feline, jekyll and hyde
Wear your fake fur on the inside
Queen of south beach, aging blues
Dinner's at six, wear your cement shoes
I thought you were singing your heart out to me
Your lips were syncing and now I see

A change would do you good
A change would do you good

Chasing dragons with plastic swords
Jack off jimmy, everybody wants more
Scully and angel on the kitchen floor
And I'm calling buddy on the ouija board
I've been thinking 'bout catching a train
Leave my phone machine by the radar range
Hello it's me, I'm not at home
If you'd like to reach me, leave me alone

A change would do you good
A change would do you good
Hello, it's me, I'm not at home
If you'd like to reach me, leave me alone

A change would do you good
A change would do you goodback to top
Home
I woke up this morning
Now I understand
What it means to give your live
To just one man
Afraid of feeling nothing
No bees or butterflies
My head is full of voices
And my house is full of lies

[chorus]
This is home, home
And this is home, home
This is home

I found you standing there
When I was seventeen
Now I'm thirty-two
And I can't remember what I'd seen in you
I made a promise
Said it everyday
Now I'm reading romance novels
And dreaming of yesterday

Chorus

I'd like to see the riviera
And slowdance underneath the stars
I'd like to watch the sun come up
In a stranger arms

Chorus

I'm going crazy
A little everyday
And everything I wanted
Is now driving me away
I woke this morning
To the sound of breaking hearts
Mine is full of questions
And it's tearing yours apart...back to top
Sweet Rosalyn
Slappin' leather was devised
During a wild streak in her life
She had a cheap apartment up on royal street, she brought home
Just enough to keep her on her feet
She don't believe in anything
But if you ask her, she'll say there's a plenty of things to believe in

Sweet rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sweet rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sometimes you gotta be loved

She got a number off the bathroom wall
She was looking for a good time so she made the call
Got a strangly calm voice on the other line
Sneaky little priest tryin' to reach out to the swine
He said, 'hello my name is father tim
Seems to me your zeal for this life has been wearing a little thin'

Sweet rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sweet rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sometimes you gotta be loved

Maybe we all could use a little grace
To know when to run or when to stay in one place

Sweet rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sweet rosalyn
Sometimes you gotta give in
Sometimes you gotta be lovedback to top
If It Makes You Happy
I've been long, along way from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,
And drank 'til I was thirsty again

We went searching through thrift store jungles

Found geronimo's rifle, marilyn's shampoo
And benny goodman's corset and pen

Well, o.k. I made this up
I promised you I'd never give up

[chorus]
If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad

You get down, real low down
You listen to coltrane, derail your own train
Well who hasn't been there before?

I come round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed,
Scrape the mold off the bread,
And serve you french toast again

Well, o.k. I still get stoned
I'm not the kind of girl you'd take home

Chorus

We've been far, far away from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,
And everywhere in between

Well, o.k. we get along
So what if right now everything's wrong?

Redemption Day
I've wept for those who suffer long
But how I weep for those who've gone
Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
But keep on killing
It's in the soul to feel such things
But weak to watch without speaking
Oh what mercy sadness brings
If God be willing

There is a train that's heading straight
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
And on the way, child and man
And woman wait, watch and wait
For redemption day

Fire rages in the streets
And swallow everything it meets
It's just an image often seen
On television
Come leaders, come you men of great
Let us hear you pontificate
Your many virtues laid to waste
And we aren't listening
What do you have for us today
Throw us a bone but save the plate
Oh why we waited til so late
Was there no oil to excavate
No riches in trade for the fate
Of every person who died in hate
Throw us a bone, you men of great

There is a train that's heading straight
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate
And on the way, child and man
And woman wait, watch and wait
For redemption day

It's buried in the countryside
It's exploding in the shells of night
It's everywhere a baby cries

Hard to Make a Stand
Old james dean monroe
Hands out flowers at the shop-n-go
Hopes for money but all he gets is fear
And the wind blows up his coat
And this he scribbles on a perfume note
'if I'm not here, then you're not here'
And he says,
'call me miscreation,
I'm a walking celebration'

[chorus]
And it's hard to make a stand
And it's hard to make a stand
It's hard to make a stand
It's hard to make s stand

My friend, o lawdy,
Went to take care of her body,
And she got shot down in the road
She looked up before she went,
Said, 'this isn't really what I meant'
And the daily news said, 'two with one stone'
And I say,
'hey there, miscreation,
Bring a flower, time is wasting'

Chorus

Yes it is

We got loud guitars and big suspicions,
Great big guns and small ambitions,
And we still argue over who is god
And I say,
'hey there, miscreation,
Bring a flower, time is wasting'
I say,
'hey there, miscreation,
We all need a revelation'

Everyday Is a Winding Road
I hitched a ride with a vending machine repair man
He says he's been down this road more than twice
He was high on intellectualism
I've never been there but the brochure looks nice
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
These are the days when anything goes

[chorus]
Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

He's got a daughter he calls easter
She was born on a tuesday night
I'm just wondering why I feel so all alone
Why I'm a stranger in my own life
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low
These are the days when anything goes

Chorus

I've been living in a sea of anarchy
I've been living on coffee and nicotine
I've been wondering if all the thing I've seen
Were ever real, were ever really happening

Love Is a Good Thing
Watch out sister, watch out brother,
Watch our children while they kill each other
With a gun they bought at walmart discount stores
Welcome to the hallway, metal-detector just been installed...hey
Isn't cops and robbers gettin' to be a big bore
Mary, mary quite contrary, close the door now, it's much too scary
And you might see something you wish you hadn't seen
Out of sight, out of time, out of patience, and I'm out of my mind
Governor, tell me what does it mean
Dance children, dance to the beat,
Wanna be a hippy cause life was so sweet
Good-morning hate
Dance children, dance to the beat,
Wanna rock and roll up and down the street,
I've got a message
Love is a good thing
Love is a good thing
Love is a good thing

Politicians on a mission, build them up, bring them down
For the good of the 'system',
Well we don't like the way you live your life
I got one thing I must express, we try our criminals in the press
Justice is a fading light

Mary, mary quite contrary, close the door now, it's much too scary
And you might see something you wish you hadn't seen
Out of sight, out of time, out of patience, and I'm out of my mind
Governor, tell me what does it mean
Dance children, dance to the beat,
Wanna be a hippy cause life was so sweet
Good-morning hate
Dance children, dance to the beat,
Wanna rock and roll up and down the street,
I've got a message
Love is a good thing
Love is a good thing
Love is a good thingback to top
Oh Marie
Here she comes, she's all dressed up in daisies
Half the time, you'd swear that she is crazy
Flowered drinks and a low-cut dress
That's the way I know her best
She says she's lonely, how could she be?
Every night she's got company

Oh marie,
I sure hope you're happy
Oh marie,
What about me, marie

She likes the way she looks in her camaro
She likes lingerie but he prefers the sombrero
She's so famous on the block
She stumbles home around four o'clock
She claims the guys are hard to please
She wears teen perfume behind her knees

Oh marie,
I sure hope you're happy
Oh marie,
What about me, marie

All day long she fills me up with dogma
She's all magazines and benzedrine and vodka
There was one man she truly loved
He took everything but her bear-skin rug
And now and then it's clear to me
That need is love and love is need

Oh marie,
I sure hope you're happy
Oh marie,
What about me, marie
Oh marie,
What are you looking for
Oh marie,
Always an open door
What are you looking forback to top
Superstar
Let's go all downtown
I got friends doing nothing but hanging around...well
I feel like there's something I could be missing
You know you look alright
You got cheap shoes, a malibu, and a big public fights
Well, there's no one else I would rather be kissing
Baby when you start to bleed, you look so sweet
Everybody's watching you cause everybody wants to be

Little superstar, well baby that's what you are
Little superstar, oh honey that's what you are

I got a backstage line
I call you up been watching you for quite some time
I beat around the streets like bandini looking for camilla
I'll be satin and speed
If you and I are still alive we'll get off these streets
Well, there was a time I would've hung around just to be seen
Hey man, it's a shame when you start to fade
Diamond rings and sparkily things won't make your shine stay

My little superstar, oh baby that's what you are
My little superstar, oh honey you break my heart
My little superstar, oh honey you know you are
My little superstar, oh honey you break my heartback to top
The Book
I read your book
And I find it strange
That I know that girl and I know her world
A little too well
And I didn't know
By giving my hand
That I would be written down, sliced around, passed down
Among stranger's hands

Three days in rome
Where do we go
I'll always remember
Three days in rome

Never again
Would I see your face
You carry a pen and a paper and no time and no words you waste
Oh you're a voyeur
The worst kind of thief
To take what happened to us
To write down everthing that went on between you and me

Three days in rome
And I stand alone
I'll always remember
Three days in rome

And what do I get
Do I get revenge
While you lay it all out
Without any doubt
Of how this would end
Sometimes it goes
Sometimes we come
To learn by mistake that the love you once made
Can't be undone

Three days in rome
I laid my heart out
I laid my soul down
I'll always remember
Three days in romeback to top
Ordinary Morning
I left a man
Asleep in the nude
Name in my pocket
With lipstick and rouge
Everything I ever wanted, what a lovely pie you've baked, is anybody listening?
Don't painted bird never flys away

It's just an ordinary morning
It's just an ordinary day
And I'm just an ordinary woman
Slipping away

The walls have been talking
About me again
I'm good for a joke but when I awoke
The dream didn't end
Now everytime I turn around I'm only sleeping, john is anybody out there?
Don't the wounded birds still sing

It's just an ordinary morning
It's just an ordinary day
And I'm just an ordinary woman
Slipping awayback to top
