To Sheila
Twilight fades
Through blistered Avalon
The sky's cruel torch
On aching autobahn
Into the uncertain divine
We scream into the last divine

You make me real
You make me real
Strong as I feel
You make me real

Sheila rides
On crashing nightengale
Intake eyes
Leave passing vapor trails
With blushing brilliance alive
Because it's time to arrive

You make me real
You make me real
Strong as I feel
You make me

Lately, I just can't seem to believe
Discard my friends to change the scenery
It meant the world to hold a bruising faith
But now it's just a matter of grace

A summer storm
Graces all of me
Highway warm
Sing silent poetry
And I could bring you the light
And take you home into the night

(You make me real) Lately, I just can't seem to believe
(You make me real) Discard my friends that change the scenery
(Strong as I feel) It meant the world to hold a bruising faith
(You make me real) But now it's just a matter of graceback to top
Ava Adore
It's you that I adore
You'll always be my whore
You'll be a mother to my child
And a child to my heart

We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl, you're the beauty in my world
Without you, there aren't reasons left to find

And you'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me
You'll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head

We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I've left to die
Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever seek to find
In time

In you I see dirty
In you I count stars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste God
In you I feel so hungry
In you I crash cars

We must never be apart

Drinking mercury to the mystery
Of all that you should ever seek to find
Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I've left behind
In time

We must never be apart

And you'll always be my whore
'Cause you're the one that I adore
And you'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me

In you I feel so dirty
In you I crash cars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste God

We must never be apartback to top
Perfect
And I've known
We're just like old friends
We just can't pretend
That lovers make amends
We are reasons so unreal
We can't help but feel
That something has been lost

But please
You know you're just like me
Next time I promise we'll be perfect
Perfect
Perfect

Strangers down the line
Lovers out of time
Memories unwind
So far, I still know who you are
But now I wonder who I was
Angel, you know it's not the end
We'll always be good friends
The letters have been sent on

So please
You always were so free
You'll see, I promise we'll be perfect
Perfect

Strangers when we meet
Strangers on the street
Lovers walk asleep

Perfect
You know this has to be
We always were so free
We promised that we'd be
Perfect
Perfectback to top
Daphne Descends
With the sugar sickness
You spy the kidnap kid
Who kids you to oblivion
It's the perfect hassle
For the perfumed kiss
He makes you miss him more than home

You love him
You love him more than this
You love him and you cannot, you can't resist

You love him
You love him for yourself
You love him and no one else, no one else

Past sidewalk ashes
A last lover's arc
You come apart to intertwine
It was all so simple
As you watched him move
Across the darkness in your room

You love him
You love him for yourself
You love him and no one else, no one else

And the winding vines
The pretty boys dive
And through the pinhole stars
Into the shadow wind
You will lose him then
On some gentle dawn
This boy is here and gone

You love him
You love him for yourself
You love him and no one, no one else

You love him
You love him more than this
You love him and you cannot, you can't resist

You love him
You love himback to top
Once Upon a Time
Mother, I'm tired
Come surrender my son
Time has ravaged on my soul
No plans to leave, but still I go
Falling with the leaves
Falling out of sleep
To the last goodbyes
Who cares why?

Mother, I've tried
Wasting my life
I haven't given up, I lie
To make you so proud in my eyes
Falling out of sleep
Crawling over me
To the last goodbyes
Who cares why?

Tuesday's come and gone
Restless, still I drive
Try to leave it all behind
Falling, falling out of sleep
Falling, falling with the leaves
I go crawling, crawling over me

Once upon a time in my life
Once upon a time in my life
Once upon a time in my life
Once upon a time in my life
I went falling
I went falling

Mother, I hope you know
That I miss you so
Time has ravaged on my soul
To wipe a mother's tears grown coldback to top
Tear
The lights came on fast
Lost in motorcrash
Gone in a flash unreal
But you knew all along
You laugh the light
I sing the songs
To watch you numb

I saw you there
You were on your way
You held the rain
And for the first time, heaven seemed insane
'Cause heaven is to blame
For taking you away

And do you know the way that I can
Do you know the way that I can't lose?
And do you know the things that I can
Do you know the things that I can do?

Where is your heart?
Where is your heart gone to?
Tear me apart
Tear me apart from you

You laugh the light
I cry the wound
In gray afternoons

I saw you there
You were on your way
You held the rain
And for the first time, heaven seemed insane
For taking you away
'Cause heaven is to blame
For taking you away

The lights came to pass
Dead opera motorcrash
Gone in a flash unreal
In nitrous overcast

And do you know the way that I can
Do you know the way that I can't lose?
And do you know the things that I can
Do you know the things that I can't lose?

Tear me apart
Tear me apart from you
Where is your heart?
Where is your heart run to?back to top
Crestfallen
Who am I to need you when I'm down?
Where are you when I need you around?
Your life is not your own

And all I ask you
Is for another chance
Another way around you
To live by circumstance, once again

Who am I to need you now?
To ask you why, to tell you no
To deserve your love and sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me

And you may go, but I know you won't leave
Too many years built into memories
Your life is not your own

Who am I to need you now?
To ask you why, to tell you no
To deserve your love and sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me

Who am I to you?
Along the way
I lost my faith

And as you were, you'll be again
To mold like clay, to break like dirt
To tear me up in your sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me
You were never meant to belong to me
You were never meant to belong to me

Who am I?back to top
Appels + Oranjes
What if the sun refused to shine?
What if the clouds refused to rain?
What if the wind refused to blow?
What if the seas refused to wave?
What if the world refused its turn?
What if the stars would hesitate?

What if what is isn't true?
What are you going to do?
What if what is isn't you?
Does that mean you've got to lose?
Digging for the feel of something new

What if the silence let you dream?
What if the air could let you breathe?
What if the words would bring you here?
What if this sound could bring you peace?

What if what is isn't true?
What are you going to do?
Digging for the feel of something new
What if what is isn't you?
Does that mean you've got to lose?

It came from your thoughts, your dreams and visions
Ripped up from your weeks and indecisions

What if the sun refused to shine?
What if the clouds refused to rain?
What if the world refused to turn?
What if the clocks would hesitate?

What if what is isn't true?
What are you going to do?
What if what is isn't you?
Does that mean you've got to lose?
Digging for the feel of something new

Does that mean you've got to choose
The feel of something new?
Does that mean you've got to lose
The thoughts you cannot lose?
What are you going to do?back to top
Pug
Kiss and kill me sweetly
Come and drive me home
Drag the miles in me
I am yours alone

Inside where it's warm
Wrap myself in you
Outside where I'm torn
Fight myself in two
In two
Into you

Desire me so deeply
Drain and kick me hard
Whisper secrets for me
Try to go too far

Inside where it's warm
Wrap myself in you
Outside where I'm torn
Fight myself in two
In two
Into

Please don't change
Please don't change at all
Bring your rain
Bring your rain to fall

Inside where it's warm
Wrap myself in you
Outside where I'm torn
Fight myself in two
In two
Into you

Come and kiss me sweetly
Ride the telephone
Drag the miles to me
I am yours alone
Yours alone
On the telephone
Yours alone
Looking for a kiss kiss
Yours aloneback to top
The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete
Dusty screams, through doors and imaginary floors, "Why can't you miss me?"
Pistol Pete removes the final breaths from her unkind, and she is shaken
What does this mean, in love or in peace?
With you lying next to me
So faithless serene
And she calls to him

Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you
Far out beneath the sorrow clouds
Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you
Let them cry out through your rusted scars

Alone he roams inside the ordinary catacombs of her waiting
With raven hands, she steals and staggers towards her man, still scorned by his demon
Because he's undone, become the language of
Disaster and love
Vengeance and dust
And she calls to him

Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you
Far out beneath the sorrow clouds
Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you
Let them cry out through your rusted scars

Dusty screams, through doors and imaginary scenes of hurt and teardrop
As he holds her down, in the cold lonely winds
Together again, her inside him
And she calls to him

Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you
Far out beneath the sorrow clouds
Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you
Let them cry out through your rusted scarsback to top
Annie-Dog
Amphetamine Annie-Dog
Has her leash and a face
Her velvet spleen, her shackle spine
Her diamond curse, it comes with mine

A vessel she, for violent I
Confession arms awake
Mine, mine, you were always mine
Possessed by my taste

And below the angel dog
Combs her hair and sings her psalms
The bombs go off, she doesn't notice
It all goes wrong, she sets things tragic
She is Venus, she is Mars
She's electric, and the struggle of

Upon my face we leave no trace
But in her stomach mercury aged

She holds the blood, she carves the knives
She digs the wives in our babies

Amphetamine Annie-Dog
Pulls her trash and her stories
From place to place, and bed to bed
Gives of herself and the magnet head

Another floor, another ceiling
Counting stairs with double meanings

Is it wrong to swallow whole?
To disappear in her?
To give her the priceless peace
Of giving up control?

We tumble out into the streets
And Annie-Dog, she drags her leash
Pretty face, ugly mouth
Bitter bred and so released

And by the no, and by the yes
Annie goes if you couldn't guess

A simple man, a sycophant
Her elephant with the laughing call
She wants clean sheets, and fresh flowers
And dental shots, and the Hong Kong glue

Amphetamine Annie-Dog
Has her leash and a faceback to top
Shame
You're gonna walk on home
You're gonna walk alone
You're gonna see this through
Don't let 'em get to you

Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame

Love is good and love is kind
Love is drunk and love is blind
Love is good and love is mine
Love is drunk all the time

Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame
Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame
Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame

You're gonna walk on home
You're gonna walk alone
You're gonna walk so far
You're gonna wonder who you are

Love is good and love is blind
Love is good and love is mine
Love is good all the time

Hello, goodbye, you know you made us cry
Hello, goodbye, you know you made us cryback to top
Behold! The Night Mare
I faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors' quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
Appease you
The wind blows, and I know

I can't go on
Digging roses from your grave
To linger on
Beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep
And the whirlpools sleep
You'll find me
The coarse tide reflects sky

And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on

Where I fear is lost here
The wind blows, and I know

All you have to do is run away
And steal yourself from me
Become a mystery to gaze into
You're so cruel in all you do
But still I believe, I believe in you

So may you come with your own knives
You'll never take me alive
With all the force of what is true
Is there nothing I can do?

I can't go on
Digging roses from your grave
To linger on
Beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep
And the whirlpools sleep
You'll find me

And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on

I've faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors' quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
To hold the flower I can't keepback to top
For Martha
Whenever I run
Whenever I run to you, lost one
It's never done
Just hanging on
Just past has let me be
Returning as if dream
Shattered as belief

If you have to go, don't say goodbye
If you have to go, don't you cry
If you have to go, I will get by
Someday I'll follow you and see you on the other side

But for the grace of love
I'd will the meaning of
Heaven from above
But for the grace of love
I'd will the meaning of
Heaven from above

Your picture out of time
Left aching in my mind
Shadows kept alive

If you have to go, don't say goodbye
If you have to go, don't you cry
If you have to go, I will get by
Someday I'll follow you and see you on the other side

But for the grace of love
I'd will the meaning of
Heaven from above
But for the grace of love
I'd will the meaning of
Heaven from above

Long horses, we are born
Creatures more than torn
Mourning our way homeback to top
Blank Page
Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed I was half-dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed above the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
Stop sign told me to stay at home
Told me you were not alone

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to hurt anyone
In bed I was half-dead
Tired of dreaming of rest

You haven't changed
You're still the same
May you rise as you fall
You were easy, you are forgotten
You are the ways of my mistakes

I catch the rainfall
Through the leaking roof
That you had left behind
You remind me of that leak in my soul
The rain falls, my friends call, leaking rain on the phone

Take a day, plant some trees
May they shade you from me
May your children play beneath

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed I was half-dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed above the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
But there I was, picking pieces up

You are a ghost
Of my indecision
No more little girlback to top
