New Age
Waiting for the phone to ring
Diamond necklace on my shoulder
Waiting for the phone to ring
Lipstick on my naked shoulder
It seems to be my fancy to make it with
Franky and nancy

Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
I'll come running to you, hey baby if you want me
I'll come running to you, baby if you want me

Looking at my hands today
Look to me that they're made of ivory
I had a funny call today
Someone died and someone married
You know that it's my fancy to make it with
Franky and nancy

Over the bridge they go
Looking for love
Over the bridge we go
Looking for love
I'll come running to you now, baby if you want me
I'll come running to you, baby if you want me
I'll come running to you now, baby if you want me
I'll come running to you, baby if you want me
And something's got a hold on me
It's the beginning of a new age
It's the beginning of a new age
Can you sing a tune for yourself
It's the beginning of a new age
All you little sick little fucks
It's the beginning of a new ageback to top
'97 Bonnie & Clyde
Baby your da-da loves you (hey)
And i'ma always be here for you no matter what happens
You're all I got in this world
I would never give you up for nothin
Nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you from me
I love you
C'mon hai-hai, we goin to the beach
Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat
Oh where's mama? she's takin a little nap in the trunk
Oh that smell da-da musta runned over a skunk
Now I know what you're thinkin - it's kind of late to go swimmin
But you know your mama, she's one of those type of women
That do crazy things, and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit
Don't play with da-da's toy knife, honey, let go of it
And don't look so upset, why you actin bashful?
Don't you wanna help da-da build a sand castle?
And mama said she wants to show how far she can float
And don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
It's just a little scratch - it don't hurt, her was eatin
Dinner while you were sweepin and spilled ketchup on her shirt
Mama's messy isn't she? we'll let her wash off in the water
And me and you can pway by ourselves, can't we?
Just the two of us..
Just the two of us..
Just the two of us..
See honey.. there's a place called heaven and a place called hell
A place called prison and a place called jail
And da-da's probably on his way to all of em except one
Cause mama's got a new husband and a stepson
And you don't want a brother do ya?
Maybe when you're old enough to understand a little better
I'll explain it to ya
But for now we'll just say mama was real real bad
She was bein mean to dad and made him real real mad
But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out
Sit back in your chair honey, quit tryin to climb out
I told you it's okay hai-hai, wanna ba-ba?
Take a night-night? nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?
Her make goo-goo ca-ca? da-da change your dia-dee
Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty
Your dad'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
Ninety-seven bonnie and clyde, me and my daughter
Me and my daughter
Me and my daughter
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Just the two of us
Wake up sweepy head we're here, before we pway
We're gonna take mama for a wittle walk along the pier
Baby, don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
Mama's too sweepy to hear you screamin in her ear
That's why you can't get her to wake, but don't worry
Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
Here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock?
We'll tie it to her footsie then we'll roll her off the dock
Ready now, here we go, on the count of free..
One.. two.. free.. wheeeeee!
There goes mama, spwashin in the water
No more fightin wit dad, no more restraining order

No more step-da-da, no more brother
Blow her kisses bye-bye, tell mama you love her (mommy!)
Now we'll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk
But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk
Just the two of usback to top
Strange Little Girl
One day you see a strange little girl look at you
One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue
She'd run to the town one day
Leaving home and the country fair
Just beware
When you're there
Strange little girl
She didn't know how to live in a town that was rough
It didn't take long before she knew she had enough
Walking home in her wrapped up world
She survived but she's feeling old
And she found all things cold
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
You really should
You really should be going
I know you wish you were
I know you wish you were
One day you see a strange little girl look at you
One day you see a strange little girl feeling blue
Walking home in her wrapped up world
She survived but she's feeling old
Cuz she found all things cold
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?
Strange little girl
Where are you going?

Enjoy the Silence
Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms

They can only do harm
They can only do harmback to top
I'm Not in Love
I'm not in love, so don't forget it
It's just a silly phase I'm going through
And just because I call you up,
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
I'm not in love, no no, it's because...
I like to see you, but then again,
That doesn't mean you mean that much to me
So if I call you, don't make a fuzz
Don't tell your friends about the two of us
I'm not in love, no no, it's because...
I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain still lying there
It hides a nasty stain still lying there
I keep your picture upon the wall
It hides a nasty stain still lying there
It hides a nasty stain still lying there
So don't you ask me to give it back
I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me
I'm not in love, no no, it's because...
Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me
Ooh, you'll wait a long time
Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me
Ooh, you'll wait a long time
I'm not in love, it's just a silly phase I'm goin through
And just because I call you up,
Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
I'm not in love
I'm not in loveback to top
Rattlesnakes
Jodie wears a hat although it hasn't rained for six days
She says a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes
She looks like eve marie saint in on the waterfront
She reads simone de beauvoir in her american circumstance
She's less than sure if her heart has come to stay in san jose
And her neverborn child still haunts her now
As she speeds down the freeway
As she tries her luck with the traffic police
Out of boredom more than spite
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard
She's obvious despite herself
She looks like eve marie saint in on the waterfront
She says all she needs is therapy
All you need is love is all you need
Jodie never sleeps ‘cause there are always needles in the hay
She says that a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes
She looks like eve marie saint in on the waterfront
As she reads simone de beauvoir in her american circumstance
Her heart, heart's like crazy paving
Upside down and back to front
She says ooh, it's so hard to love
When love was your great disappointment

Count those rattlesnakes
She says a girl needs a gun these days
On account of all the rattlesnakes
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakesback to top
Time
Well, the smart money's on harlow
And the moon is in the street
The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
And you're east of east st. louis
And the wind is making speeches
And the rain sounds like a round of applause
Napoleon is weeping in the carnival saloon
His invisible fiance is in the mirror
The band is going home
It's raining hammers, it's raining nails
Yes, it's true, there's nothing left for him down here
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
That you love
And it's time time time
And they all pretend they're orphans
And their memory's like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can't remember
Tell the things you can't forget that
History puts a saint in every dream
Well she said she'd stick around
Until the bandages came off
But these mama boys just don't know when to quit
And matilda asks the sailors are those dreams
Or are those prayers
So just close your eyes son
And this won't hurt a bit
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
That you love
And it's time time time
Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars
And splash into the streets
And when they're on a roll
She pulls a razor from her boot
And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window
And a kiss upon his lips
Till the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off till I come back again
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
That you love
And it's time time time

And it's time time time
And it's time time time
And it's time time time
That you love
And it's time time timeback to top
Heart of Gold
I want to live
I want to give
I want to live
I want to give
I've been a miner for a heart of gold
It's these expressions I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old
I've been to hollywood
I've been to redwood
I crossed an ocean for a heart of gold
I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
I've been to hollywood
I've been to redwood
I crossed an ocean for a heart of gold
I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old
I said I am getting old
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
That keeps me searching for a heart of goldback to top
I Don't Like Mondays
The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody's gonna go to school today
She's gonna make them stay at home
And daddy doesn't understand it
He always said she was good as gold

And he can see no reason
'cause there are no reason
What reason do you need to be shown

Tell me why
I don't like mondays
Tell me why
I don't like mondays
I don't like
I don't like
I don't like mondays
Tell me why
I don't like mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down
Down, down, shoot it all down

All the playing's stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys awhile
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
That the lesson today is how to die
And then the bullhorn crackles
And the captain tackles
With the problems and the hows and whys
And he can see no reason
Cos there are no reason
What reason do you need to die

Tell me why
I don't like mondays
Tell me why
I don't like mondays
I don't like

I don't like mondays
Tell me why

Raining Blood
Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death
I said
She said
Death will be their acquisition
The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me
Fall into me the sky's crimson tears
Abolish the rules
Abolish the rules made of stone
Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above
Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away
Raining blood
Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding it's horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in bloodback to top
Real Men
Take your mind back
I don't know when
Sometime when it always seemed
To be just us and them
Girls that wore pink
And boys that wore blue
Boys that always grew up better men
Than me and you
What's a man now, what's a man mean
Is he rough or is he rugged
Is he cultural and clean
Now it's all change, it's got to change more
We think it's getting better
But nobody's really sure
And so it goes, go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
See the nice boys, dancing in pairs
Golden earring, golden tan
Blow-wave in the hair
Sure they're all straight, straight as a line
All the gays are macho
Can't you see their leather shine
You don't want to sound dumb, don't want to offend
So don't call me a faggot
Not unless you are a friend
Then if you're tall, handsome, and strong
You can wear the uniform and I could play along
And so it goes, go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
Time to get scared, time to change plan
Don't know how to treat a lady
Don't know how to be a man
Time to admit what you call defeat
‘cause there's women running past you now
And you just drag your feet
Man makes a gun, man goes to war
Man can kill and man can drink
And man can take a whore
Kill all the blacks, kill all the reds
And if there's war between the sexes
Then there'll be no people left
And so it goes, go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And so it goes, go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are
And so it goes, go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men areback to top
