Mother Mother
Mother mother can you hear me I'm just calling to say hello
How's the weather how's my father am I lonely heavens no
Mother mother are listening just a phone call to ease your mind
Life is perfect never better distance making the heart grow blind

When you sent me off to see the world where you scared that I might get hurt
Would I try a little tobacco would I keep on hiking up my skirt

I'm hungry
I'm dirty
I'm losing my mind
Everything's fine

I'm freezing
I'm Starving
I'm Bleeding death
Everything's fine

Yeah, I'm working, making money I'm just starting to build a name
I can feel it around the corner I could make it any day
Mother mother can you hear me yeah I'm sober sure I'm sane
Life is perfect never better still your daughter still the same

If I tell you what you want to hear will it help you to sleep wellat night
Are you sure that I'm your perfect dear now just cuddle up and sleep tight

I'm hungry
I'm dirty
I'm losing my mind
Everything's fine

I'm freezing
I'm starving
I'm bleeding to death
Everything's fine

I miss you
I love you.back to top

Parade around
An angel wing is caugn up in the tree if you know what's best get the hell away from me!

Tell It To The Sky

al that we had
i took the ball and ran
it makes you weak
it makes you strong
been in your blood too long

Brain Crack
have you ever heard the sound
of you head in the ground
and you're afraid to sya
and it wont go away?

that's the sound of your brain cracking

that's the sound of your brain crackingback to top
Kisses
she'll suck the living down to size 3
she'll suck the living and she'll kill me
necks are crooked and it's time to sing
her beak is wide open
at the sound of wings
oh ay
she kisses harder than me
i guess i'm not that hungry
her veins are rivers
running to the sea
fish will eat it, but don't ask me
angels looking make it hard to cry
people looking make it cool to die
oy ay
she kisses harder than me
i guess i'm not that hungryback to top
The One
I sleep the day away giving you all I can
Ready to reach new lows dying to wash my hand

You're the one that froze the sun
Say you love me as you pull the trigger
Better today rather than tomorrow

Heaven is in the air hiding behind your blinds
Heaven is right out there leaving me here behind

You're the one that froze the sun
Say you love me as you pull the trigger
Better today rather than tomorrow

You should enjoy the weather
Soon you'll burn with what you've done...

You'll hurt no one.back to top
One Hit Wonder
they call you the one hit wonder
if i could justhit you right
yeah right between yeah right
between your eyes
if ever a girlie wonder
could ever be more than just
one thing yeah more than
one thing at a time
i give you my four leaf clover
the only one the only one
of mine
and you'll hear it over and over
until it is built right in
yeah right into your filthy little mind
i own the world
i bought the whoe damn world
from the man who sold the world
a million dollar caddy world
so could you just bend right over?
to see how it feels to e
to see just how it feels
to be alive
and you'll get it over and over
cause God only knows that is
the only one the only one
of mine
i own the world
i bought the whole damn world
from the man who sold the world
a million dollar cranky worldback to top

30 Seconds
for every stone there's a rock
waiting for someones head
here it come, and you wish
you had two heads
30 seconds. 30 seconds.
sell half your soul
and you realize that you are
no one. no one. no one.
for every star there's
another one that's fading
fading away hating
every bit of life
30 seconds. 30 seconds.
one day of sun
and the rest you're spending as a
no one. no one. no one. no one.
out of my way
before you know you're
our of my way
for everyone there's
another one that's stronger
so out you go
like the trash that you drug in
30 seconds . 30 seconds.
paving the way
for the ones who made you feel like
no one. no one. no one. no one.
out of my way
before you know you're
out of my wayback to top
The Real
i know the sun's around
to wake the dead
you've got if anything
a bigger head
most likely to conceive
was who i konw
but now it's you that i have to konw
silly who ya know
has got away
sweet little who ya know
lives in l.a.
most likely to perform
was who i knew
but now it's you that i have to know
only the real world
is so unreal
only the real is real
pocket the business card
be on your way
pocket the smiling face
and save the day

most likely to conceive
was who i knew
that i have to know
only the real world
is so unreal only the real
is real.back to top
