The Empty Page
These are the words but not the truth
God bless them all when they speak to you
But that's alright
On an empty stage
Sing out when
There's no other way

Come drift the town where secrets lie
Where friends and neighbours keep drifting by
But that's alright
You're here to stay
Sing out tonight
The empty page

I always thought I'd see
Your name in flashing light
You did it all for free, girl
And freely ripped the night
You're free to fight

These are the words but not the truth
God bless them all when they speak to you
But that's alright
You're here to stay
Sing out tonight
The empty page

Do you remember the time
When you were new in town
You smashed your head in the mirror, baby
And kissed the frozen ground
Yr ripped up sound

The empty page has wasted down
The empty page is ripped
The empty page will waste this town
The empty page has slippedback to top
Disconnection Notice
Did you get your disconnection notice?
Mine came in the mail today
They seem to think I'm disconnected
Don't think I know what to read or write or say
Glossaries injected daily
Words and numbers spell out the price to pay
It simply states "you're disconnected baby"
See how easily it all slips away

This is no direction
Prepare for the city
Angels turn on heaven's light

Hurry up, the stage awaits you
Don't forget to memorize your lines
Can you hear them congratulate you?
Out of step just can't find the time
Will we pass thru undetected?
Everything's right here inside our file
You're not so free to be so unprotected
A secret Mona Lisa hides behind her smile

This is no direction
Prepare for the city
Angels turn on heaven's light

Did you get your disconnection notice?
Mine came in the mail today
They seem to think I'm disconnected
Don't think I know what to read or write or say
Glossaries injected daily
Words and numbers spell out the price to pay
It simply states "you're disconnected baby"
See how easily it all slips awayback to top
Rain on Tin
We all hope
To signal kin
Rays of gold
Now rain on tin
Gather round
Gather friends
Never fear
Never againback to top
Karen Revisited
Heard your name the other day
It's been a long, long time
Ancient history, some would say
Another state of mind
You smell of memory
Felt-tipped electric child

She takes a plastic pill
She plays the weatherman
She screams "Religion kills
More than it saves you, man"
She painted filigrees
She was the acid queen
She claims society
Is just a fever dream

Now you live in the trees and salty seas
Trippin' out in the blue skies
You shut the door on everything
Too busy getting high
And me, just another dream theory
Lost inside your eyes

She's not in your history books
Lost her mind and kept her looks
Down beneath the radar screen
She's lit up like gasoline
Been thru a million kix
Looking for the one that sticks
Never would've known it then
I might not see her again

Top hats and tails for thrills
Red lips and famous hands
Sidelong and glancing still
In tiny dancer land

We kissed
Time slipped
Hard edged
Tight lipped
See you
Some time
Ask me if I care

Karen
Miss communication

Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style
Send the moon thru the skylight
Bells together outrageously
Noiseball, flirtatious example
Bless her soul to further degree
Theatre goddess, film destroyer
New York girls are sure to enjoy her
Fuzzy peach, teenage computer
A shocking figure in the eye of the universe

I am dead by the beauty of strangers
In horror my eye-head transforms them
Into smiling beautific roommates
From dust to dust they create rock and roll
Here comes something: you are Lou Reed
Transformer cracked by the backyard stream
Killer tunes, bubblegum disaster
Radical adults lick godhead style.back to top
Plastic Sun
Plastic girl with plastic gun
Plastic smile under plastic sun
You burn my heart with your frigid stare
Rip me off with your greasy hair
(JANE: "britney spear")
I hate you and your fishy friends
I hate you and it never ends

Plastic girl with plastic gun
Plastic smile under plastic sun
You burn my heart with your frigid stare
Rip me off with your greasy hair
(JANE: "britney spear")
I hate you and your fishy friends
I hate you and it never ends

Tired of the times I wound up dead
Tired of the dogs inside your head
Tired of the needles beside your bed
Tired of the crap you keep me fed
Tired of the people you keep misled
Your blood is turning my blue eyes red
Get your hands off my tomato
Cherry juice on a rotten potato
Subway slasher's on my ass
Steals my money and smokes my grass
Watch your back or you're dead meat baby
Throw a dog a bone and you still get rabies

Plastic girl with plastic gun
Plastic smile under plastic sun
You burn my heart with your frigid stare
Rip me off with your greasy hair
(JANE: "britney spear")
I hate you and your fishy friends
I hate you and it never endsback to top
Sympathy for the Strawberry
Let me introduce you
(feel the wind soooo)
Since you saw my shadow self
Living underneath you
(over here)
She can't resist a tickle out
I'm a girl scout
Searching for the new stuff

Did I mention that it melts away
(all gone)
She puts a sign out
(i want a)
Out of order
(i want a building that stays)
Makes you strongly disobey
Guiding you away
(i promised you)
Chiding you away

So quick to hide when I turn around
She will rise just to embarass me
She likes to dance when it's dark inside
Just a flashlight there, for a guide
Try to catch me if you can
It's free and wild, watch where you stand
Below the net, desire it grows and grows
Like a strawberry not a rose
Prickly patch don't you stand on me
Squishin' down in the mud
Aah!
In your eyeback to top
