100%
[thurston]
I can never forget you - the way you rock the girls
They move a world and love you - a blast in the underworld
I stick a knife in my head - thinking 'bout your eyes
But now that you been shot dead - I've got a new surprise

I been waitin' for you just to say
He's off to check his mind
But all I know is you got no money
But that's got nothing to do with a good time

Can you forgive the boy who - shot you in the head
Or should you get a gun and - go and get revenge?
A 100% of my love - up to you true star
It's hard to believe you took off - I always thought you'd go far

But I've been around the world a million times
And all you men are slime
It's the gun to my head, goodbye I am dead
Wastewood rockers is time for cryin', hey!back to top
Swimsuit Issue
[kim]
I'm just here for dictation - I don't wanna be a sensation
Bein' on sixty minutes - was it worth your fifteen minutes?

Don't touch my breast - I'm just working at my desk
Don't put me to the test - I'm just doing my best

Shopping at maxfields - power for you to wield
Dreams of going to the grammies - `till you poked me with your whammy

You spined the disc - now you're moving your wrist
I'm just from encino - why are you so meano

I'm just here for dictation - and not your summer vacation
You really like to shmooze - well now you're on the news

I'm from sherman oaks - just a wheel with spokes
But I ain't giving you headace - in a sunset bungalow

Roshumba, judith, paulina, cathy, vendella, naomi,
Ashley, angie, stacey, gail
Ice women

Theresa's Sound World
[thurston]
Like girl come walkin' thru the cornfield
Like blue vibration thru the sea
I know I'd love her to breathe, again
Like cubes are talkin' her down

I've been a wasted day
Like spinning round a saint
Like colored wild sign
Theresa talkin' in the rain

Like girl be growin' thru town
Windows are thoughts in the stain
I know I'd love her to stay
Whispering signs are agreeing

Like talkin' golden terrain
Like thrivin' dark in the saint
A cat in gold goes along
Theresa's sound for the kingback to top
Drunken Butterfly
[kim]
Smile like a sun, back over time
Crazy fr you, pleasure is mine
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?

You're coming thru, even it up
Going too far, try understand
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?

Whisper kiss yr ear, I'll tell you what I fear
Whisper the kisses in yr ear, I'll tell you what I fear

Come on home, just ain't fair
Name of rock'n'roll, where love dies
Couldn't find a soul, tell it like it is
Deep down inside, drunken butterfly
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?
I love you, I love you, I love you, what's your name?back to top
Shoot
[kim]
Can I have some money? I'm gonna go to the store
Can I have some money? I can't tell you what it's for
Can I have some money? you know it's you that I adore
Can I have some money? don't ask me what it's for

Since we've been together you've been good to me
You only hit me when you wanna be pleased

Can I have the car keys? I'm gonna go for a ride
Can I have the car please? I'm going out for a while
Can I have the car now? I wanna drive all around
Can I have the car dear? I'm gonna to leave this town

I won't be asking your permission to leave
I won't be asking not to have this baby please
And I won't be asking a devil for a bus fare please
And I won't be asking I had to see you bleed

Ssssssh
Visualize
That's right
Pray baby
One two three
Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot

Can I have my lipstick? that was such a surprise
Can I have my lipstick? I'm going out for a ride
I'm not a little girl, and you sure are not my dad
You don't even know what you almost hadback to top
Wish Fulfillment
[lee]
I see your wishes on the wall, and that's all right with me
I see you run to make a call, hoping that there's someone free
Your life and my life they don't touch at all, and that's no way to be
We've never seemed so far

What's real? what is true?
I ain't turning my back on you
Where're you goin'? where've you been?
Making wishes, watching dreams

It might be simple, it might be true, I might be overwhelmed by you
You might be empty, the way your eyes just look right through
It's such a mess now anyway, wish fulfillment every day
I don't believe you, now I can't hear a word you say

I see you shaking in the light, reading the headline news
The others they're not quite so bright, we want them to choose you
I could almost see your face tonight, singing simple rhythm'n'blues
You'll always be a star

Shake it baby! come'on scream!
Just see your face in a magazine
Don't doubt it! leaves chris sore! (? )
I can't stand it anymore

It's my favorite shot of you, you look so pretty your eyes were true
I'm still on your side, in spite of everything you do
We're only blood on blood on life, you paint me pictures every night (? )
Come wish beside me, don't you know you know what's rightback to top
Sugar Kane
[thurston]
You're perfect in the way, a perfect end today
You're burning out their lights, and burning in their eyes
I love you sugar kane, a-comin' from the rain
Oh kiss me like a frog, and turn me into flame
I love you all the time, I need you 8 to 9
And I can stay all night, yr body shining

And I know
There's something down there sugar soul
Back to the cross a twisted lane
There something down there sugar kane

I'm back again in love, I'm back again a dove
Where'd you get your light, your smilin' sugar life
Another lovers day, another cracked up night
Every night I say, the light is coming

And I know
There's something down there sugar cone
Back to the cross a twisted lane
There's something down there sugar kane

Hey angel come and play, and fly me away
A stroll along the beach, until you're out of time
I love you sugar kane, a crack into the dream
I love you sugar kane, I love you sugar kane
I love you sugar kane, I love you sugar kane
I love you sugar kane, I love you sugarback to top
Orange Rolls, Angel's Spit
[kim]
She got you, got you good - didn't have a chance
Pretty lady put you in - wear hat master ends (? )
Oh baby don't you know - you're livin' on the death
You better stay away - if you wanna live

Every time you turn around she is lookin' up at you and down below

Every time you turn around she is lookin' up at you and down below
Ooh - sugar pudding

Come on sugar tic - you are gonna go

Lalalalalalalalalaaaaaah

On the Strip
[kim]
Every time you look my way
You shine a light in what you say
Every time you look my way
You talk a rhyme called purple haze

Close your eyes and pretend
You're not at all a black friend

A smileless girl on the strip
You really learn just how to be hip
Tell yr stories 'bout your crazy trip
Messing with stars and doing tricks

Close your eyes and pretend
It started all back then

Big glass house on the hill
Doing dope but did you swear
Yesterday was buried last year
While I don't care I thought was clear

Close your eyes and pretend
This is how it should end

Cinderella of the night
Doesn't know her left from right
She so hungry for a bite
Forget your friends for a big night

Don't you know who's keeping score
Who's that barking at your door

Hold tight with fear, a little bit
Hold tight with fear, a little bit
Hold tight with fear, a little bit
Hold tight with fear
That was then, this is now

Hold tight with fear, a little bit
Hold tight with fear, a little bit
Hold tight with fear, a little bit
Hold tight with fear
That was then, this is now

Every time you look my way
Remember a girl who used to say
Hold me tight any way
It's okay it's only play

I will remember in my dawn
What I came for, for a larkback to top
Chapel Hill
[thurston]
A-back in the days when the battles raged,
And we thought it was nothing
A bookstore man meets the cia,
And we know
Throw me a cord and plug it in,
Get the cradle rocking
Ah, out with the redneck pig old men,
And it's go

The hair in the hole in my head
Too bad the scene is dead
Memories in the shadow
Back in time again

Ah, I can't forget your terrorized face,
When you cried for the shameless
Wasted life ameri-k-k-kan,
And you smile
So why should we run when we cannot hide,
And my flag is burning?
We could be wrong but that's allright,
We'll rise again

The hair in the hole in my head
Too bad the scene is dead
Memories in the shadow
It's back in town again

Lookin' away it's another day,
And of course we love you
Radical man is the cia,
And we say no
We'll round up the durham h.c. kids,
And the char grill killers
Jesse h. come into our pit,
All ages show

The hair in the hole in my head
Too bad the scene is dead
Memories in the shadow
It's back in time againback to top
JC
[kim]
Always cost a pair of hose - spaces pressed together rose
Arms around each others back - you know that I liked you jack
And all the other boys who pose - a silent dance in the woods
In the suburb light is shown - another can of coca cola
Don't you ever call me mom - freckled dancing in the plan
And air so thin it weighs a ton - you can see as far as fun
You're nothing but a history - a second here and then you're gone
Quicksand, quicksand all around - turn the corner just beyond
The shadows move and change the groove - and something tells me not to brood
Turning room and that's a show - you're walking through my heart once more
Don't forget to close the door - I'm not certain of what you found
All the men want a charming whore - like a crown fortunes
Sunny skies and angels bleed - falling down upon my knees
That wasn't how it's supposed to be - clear blue eyes, justice tries
The wind is busy blowing dizzy - you're dreams were shot like a star
Exploding in a mind somewhere - doing something on a dare
Pulling a trigger like breathing air - a sunkissed boy that gave no thought
To what he'd made while others sake

Ocean spreads a candle sand - it's dripping in my hand, you're dead
Little brother reminding me - the moments tick forever true
You can see as far as him - don't you know the shape I'm in
You're walking through my heart once more - don't forget to close the doorback to top
Purr
[thurston]
Whoahooh!

I love you baby 'cause you're back in time - I love you today
Yr eyes are flashing like a magic sign - the sun comes out to play

I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
You chased it all away

A dreaming beauty sleeping day and night - the sun around you
I love you baby yeah you're superfine - a-comin' down too
A purring whirring fuzzy lights of day - a-switching sunlight
I chase you kitten catch you every time - funny how it flies

I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
You chase the life away

I hear you purring through a supersoul - a-puff in to it
A puss in leather yeah a prince in gold - a leather tale away

I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
You chase the life awayback to top

Aaaaaaaaaaoooow
Whoooow
Ha
Ha

Riding down the road it nearly struck me blind
You and me are burning in the summertime

Let's go find some shady ground
Gotta get rid of that king hell throng
You and me are burning in the summertime
You and me are burning in the summertime

Scrape, scrape, scrapin' melted cheese
Say I love you, later please
You and me are burning in the summertime
You and me are burning in the summertime

Dark spots floating in front of my eyes
Mum said she turned it and squattin' flies
You and me are burning in the summertime
You and me are burning in the summertime

Last night I dreamed I kissed neil young
If I was a boy I guess it would be fun
You and me are burning in the summertime
You and me are burning in the summertime

Don't you know a city where the horses grow?
Green malls hanging chillin' crows
You and me are burning in the summertime
You and me are burning in the summertime

I said it before and I'll say it again:
I'm so happy we're just friendsback to top
