Travellin' Light / Living Doll / Lucky Lips / Talk Back Trembling Lips

Got no bags and baggage to slow me down
I'm travellin' so fast, my feet ain't touchin' the ground
Travellin' light, travellin' light
I just can't wait to be with my baby tonight
 
No comb and no toothbrush, I've got nothing to haul
I'm carryin' only
A pocketful of dreams, a heart full of love
And they weigh nothin' at all
 
Soon I'm gonna see that love look in your eyes
I'm a hoot and a holler away from paradise
Travellin' light, travellin' light
I just can't wait to be with my baby tonight
 
Got myself a crying, talking, sleeping, walking, living doll
Got to do my best to please her, just 'cause she's a living doll
Got a roving eye and that is why she satisfies my soul
I got the one and only walking talking, living doll
 
Take a look at her hair, it's real
If you don't believe what I say, just feel
You lock her up in a trunk
So no big hunk can steal her away from me
 
I got myself a crying, talking, sleeping, walking, living doll
I got to do my best to please her, just 'cause she's a living doll
I got a roving eye and that is why she satisfies my soul
I got the one and only walking talking, living doll
 
Doo-wop, doo-ana, doo-wop, doo-ana, doo-wop, doo-ana
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Doo-wop, doo-ana, doo-wop, doo-ana, doo-wop, doo-ana
Whoa, whoa, whoa
 
When I was just a little baby, I didn't have many toys
But my mama used to say, 'Son, you've got more than other boys
Now, you may not be good looking and you may not be too rich
But you'll never ever be alone, 'cause you've got lucky lips!'
 
Lucky lips are always kissing, lucky lips are never blue
Lucky lips will always find a pair of lips so true
Don't need a four-leaf clover, rabbit's foot or good luck charm
With lucky lips you'll always have a baby in your arms
 
Talk back, trembling lips
Shaky legs, don't just stand there
Don't let her know that she's getting through to you
Talk back, trembling lips
Burning eyes, don't start crying
Heart, don't let her know that your breaking in two
 
Every day our love's a battle royal
Dear, it seems that fighting's all we do
But if I let you know how much I love you
You'll do things to me you shouldn't do
 
Talk back, trembling lips
Shaky legs, don't just stand there
Don't let her know that she's getting through to you
Talk back, trembling lips
Burning eyes, don't start crying
Heart, don't let her know that your breaking in two
 

I’m Stranded

Like a snake calling on the phone
I've got no time to be alone
There is someone coming at me all the time
And babe I think I'll lose my mind
 
'Cause I'm stranded on my own
Stranded so far from home
 
I'm riding on a midnight train
And everybody looks just the same
A subway light it's dirty reflection
I'm lost now I don't have no direction
 
I'm stranded on my own
Stranded so far from home
 
I'm stranded
Yeah I'm so far from home
Stranded
You know I'm on my own
Stranded
You got to leave me alone
'Cause I'm stranded on my own
Stranded so far from home
 
Look at me, looking at you
You know there's not a thing that I can do
You're lost your mind is a whirl
Hey baby you're such a stupid girl
 
I'm stranded
We're living in a world insane
Stranded
They cut out some heart and some brain
Stranded
Been filling it up with dirt
Stranded
You don't know how much it hurts
To be stranded on your own
To be stranded so far from home
 

(I'm) Stranded

Like a snake calling on the phone

There is someone coming at me all the time
Yeah babe I think I'll lose my mind
 
'Cause I'm stranded on my own
Stranded far from home, all right
 
I'm riding on a midnight train
And everybody looks just the same
A subway light it's dirty reflection
I'm lost babe I got no direction
 
And I'm stranded on my own
Stranded far from home, all right
 
Stranded - yeah I'm on my own
Stranded - I'm so far from home
Stranded - you gotta leave me alone
'Cause I'm stranded on my own, stranded far from home
 
Come on!
 
Look at me looking at you
There ain't a thing that I can do
You are lost, your mind is stuck in a whirl
Yeah honey such a stupid girl
 
Now I'm stranded on my own
Stranded far from home, come on
 
Stranded - yeah I'm on my own
Stranded - I'm so far from home
Stranded - you gotta leave me alone
'Cause I'm stranded on my own, stranded far from home

Livin' in a world insane
They cut out some heart and some brain
Been filling it up with dirt
Yeah baby dunno how it hurts
 
To be stranded on your own
Stranded far from home, all right
 
Stranded - I'm so far from home
Stranded - yeah I'm on my own
Stranded - you got to leave me alone
 
Come on!
 
Stranded - I'm so far from home
Stranded - yeah I'm on my own
Stranded - you got to leave me alone
'Cause I'm stranded on my own
Stranded
 

Enola Gay

Enola Gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday
Oh, words can't describe the feeling and the way you lied
These games you play, they're gonna end it more than tears someday
Oh, Enola Gay, it shouldn't ever have to end this way
 
It's 8:15, and that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you're coming home
Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Oh, this kiss you give, it's never ever gonna fade away
 
Enola Gay, it shouldn't ever have to end this way
Oh, Enola Gay, it shouldn't fade in our dreams away
 
It's 8:15, and that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you're coming home
 
Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Oh, this kiss you give, it's never ever gonna fade away
 

The Fading Memory

I'm lost, so lost…
Will I be able to see the sky again?
Oh please, one more day
Wishing, praying…
Wont someone allow this shadow of a girl
To see one more day?
 
Remember, remember, please remember who I used to be
Who am I, who am I, I'm a puppet in their game
 
Dreaming of a life I never had
 
Remember, remember, please remember who I used to be
Who am I, who am I, my reality has slipped away
 
Xion, Xion...
Isn't this the name they gave to me?
(Remember, remember, please remember who I used to be)
Promise…
My friends, I'm still here
(Who am I, who am I, my identity is lost)
 
Remember, remember, please remember who I used to be
Who am I, who am I, who was I supposed to be?
 

The Gift

In old St. Louis over in Missouri
The mighty Mississippi, well, it rolls and flows.
A son was born to Mary Russell
And it starts the legend every cowboy knows.
Young kid Russell was born to wander.
Ever westward he was bound to roam,
Just a kid of sixteen in 1880.
Up in wild Montana he found his home.
 
God made Montana for the wild man,
For the Piegan and the Sioux and Crow,
Saved His greatest gift for Charlie,
Said, 'Get her all down before she goes.
You gotta get her all down
'cause she's bound to go.'
 
God hung the stars over Judith Basin.
God put the magic in young Charlie's hands.
And all was seen and all remembered,
Every shining mountain, every longhorn brand.
He could paint the light on horsehide shining,
The great passing herds of the buffalo,
And a cow camp cold on a rainy morning,
And the twisting wrist of the Houlihan throw.
 
God made Montana for the wild man,
For the Piegan and the Sioux and Crow,
Saved His greatest gift for Charlie,
Said, 'Get her all down before she goes.
You gotta get her all down
'cause she's bound to go.'
When the Lord called Charlie to his home up yonder
He said, 'Kid Russell, I got a job for you.
You're in charge of sunsets up in old Montana
'Cause I can't paint them quite as good as you,
And when you're done, we'll go out and have a few,
And Nancy Russell will make sure it's just two.'
 
God made Montana for the wild man,
For the Piegan and the Sioux and Crow,
Saved His greatest gift for Charlie,
Said, 'Get her all down before she goes.
You gotta get her all down
'cause she's bound to go.'
 

Alberta's Child

Well, them ol' boys in Texas chew copenhagen
Wash it all down with that Coors
Ain't a bit bashful about speakin' their minds
They'll tell you what's theirs and what's yours
There's Waylon and there's Willie
They own about half the state
And sing of her glories all in song
Talk about your lovers and your fighters
Wild brahma bull riders
The whole thing takes a holt and goes on
 
Ride with me Jesus, help me pull this heavy load
Don't let her slip, don't let her slide
You answer all our questions further down this muddy road
Old cowboys cross the Great Divide
 
Well up north it's saddle broncs and it's hockey and honkytonks
Old Wilf Carter 78s
Dumb stuff like chores when it's twenty below
They're the things that a country boy hates
Too much damn wind and not enough whiskey
Drives them ol' northern boys flat wild
And he many go to Hell or even Vancouver
He'll always be Alberta's child
 

I Missed Your Party

I'm genuinely sorry that I missed your party
You should try holding all the guilt I still carry
Is it any wonder that I say I'm burned out?
When you say you're bummed out.
'Cause I missed your party
 
Bourbon won't kill it, so I'll just have to will it
I won't drink the Kool-Aid, try not to be afraid
You say you can see all the goodness inside me, dear me
Say that you want me, for all that I can be
 
I listen to Billy Joel
I watch Flashdance again
I'm going to get through Walt Whitman
I'm going to be in bed by ten
 
The Roller Girls are rolling and the rocking boys are rocking
Am I just holding onto memories golden?
I could go out dancing to feel bodies close to my skin
I'd better stay in to face the trouble we are in
 
I listen to Billy Joel
I watch Flashdance again
I'm going to get through Walt Whitman
I'm going to be in bed by ten
I'm going to be in bed by ten
 
I listen to Billy Joel
I watch Flashdance again
I'm going to get through Walt Whitman
I'm going to be in bed by ten
I'm going to be in bed by ten
 
These days I'm well travelled
You can watch me unravel
I'm genuinely sorry that I missed your party
 

Pilgrim's Progress

I sat me down to write a simple story
which maybe in the end became a song
In trying to find the words which might begin it
I found these were the thoughts I brought along
At first I took my weight to be an anchor
and gathered up my fears to guide me round
but then I clearly saw my own delusion
and found my struggles further bogged me down
In starting out I thought to go exploring
and set my foot upon the nearest road
In vain I looked to find the promised turning
but only saw how far I was from home
In searching I forsook the paths of learning
and sought instead to find some pirate's gold
In fighting I did hurt those dearest to me
and still no hidden truths could I unfold
I sat me down to write a simple story
which maybe in the end became a song
The words have all been writ by one before me
We're taking turns in trying to pass them on
Oh, we're taking turns in trying to pass them on

I'm sick of trying

[Verse 1]
Lines of cocaine lately love rollercoaster
You love me hate me we fight in the roadster
Rage in your veins jealousy is the devil
You sip on your cup till your head isn't level
 
[Chorus]
You feel like you've been alone for so long
And you're trying real hard
Yet he just won't love you like you love him
Feeling lonelier when you're with him
You're the girl that he says he's always wanted
He must mistreat the things that he loves, yeah
You don't deserve another minute of this bullshit story
And I'm sorry babe
Girl I'm high in back of the room fuckin with these models
So many lines on the table yeah I feel like I'm lost
In my head yet again driving down swerving I'm so drunk
Have you ever thought of swervin' off the motherfucking sidewalk?
 
[Verse 2]
All these bitches feel the same on the inside
Living life unholy or I'm out of my mind
Don't deserve another chance honestly I'm
Better off alone with all my white lines
And comma's drinking holy water
In the bamas living lavish
Numb the horror of being alone my darling
 
[Chorus]
You feel like you've been alone for so long
And you're trying real hard
Yet he just won't love you like you love him
Feeling lonelier when you with him
You're the girl that he says he's always wanted
He must mistreat the things that he loves, yeah
You don't deserve another minute of his bullshit story
And I'm sorry babe
Girl I'm high in back of the room fuckin with these models
So many lines on the table yeah I feel like I'm lost
In my head yet again driving down swerving I'm so drunk
Have you ever thought of swervin' off the motherfucking sidewalk?
 

Mistakes before I'm gone

[Chorus]
You don't wanna live the life I got
Ignoring everything I say, my god
I don't wanna have to do this alone
I'll smoke with all these girls until I'm done
I'll make a few mistakes before I'm gone
It's dangerous girl for you to be here alone
 
[Verse]
Girl you was up late on the phone
I was telling you I'm sorry for my tone
Screaming louder than I ever thought you'd hear me, no
It's not okay and by the way I saw his picture on your phone
My god i was up late talking on the phone
I was telling her I loved her and I love the way she moan
Screaming louder as she pulled herself under the covers, oh
Like oh my god it's not okay the way you love to take control
And lie to me
Lie to me
 
[Chorus]
You don't wanna live the life I got
Ignoring everything I say, my god
I don't wanna have to do this alone
I'll smoke with all these girls until I'm done
I'll make a few mistakes before I'm gone
It's dangerous girl for you to be here alone
 

Gone With the Wind

In my dreams I can still feel the fire
From her body next to mine
It all happened up in Washington
Early in the spring of sixty-nine
 
Now it's only a memory of some
Moments I will never share again
Just another love from my life that is gone now
Another sweet love gone with the wind
 
Thumbin' my way across Kansas I stand lookin'
At the tall and golden grain
And I start to think of Anna 'cause
The color of her hair was just the same
 
Lord, we sure did have some good times
And it's easy to remember where and when
But my Anna's just another love that's gone now
Another sweet love gone with the wind
 
Got my mind messed up in Dallas, hopped a freight
And headed south to San Antone
Met a sweet thing there to hold my hand
She offered me the comforts of her home
 
Clouds of doubt began to gather
Each accusing one another at the end
So she's just another love of mine that's gone now
Another sweet love gone with the wind
 
Doors to the past swing open and my memory
Takes me back to yesterday
Seen a lot of lonely cities
Left a lot of lonely girls along the way
 
Could this emptiness inside me
Come from broken hearts I'll never see again?
Just a lot of loves in my life that are gone now
A lot of sweet loves gone with the wind
 
Just a lot of loves in my life that are gone now
A lot of sweet loves gone with the wind
 

Bigger Stones

Sometimes I wanna fall asleep and die off in a dream
The music takes me back to my old past when I was young and feelin' mean
 
And as I stare into the spotlight it's like drivin' my car
We had the girls and a will and a bill on a stolen credit card
Singin' someday we'll be stars, Joe
 
And now, I feel the pain of growin' old I hear the voices in the rain
I see a vision of doubt that keeps rollin' through my baby's eyes
When she calls out my name each time that she complains
 
Seems like we rolled bigger stones back then
Seems like we rolled bigger stones
Seems like we rolled bigger stones back then
Seems like we rolled bigger stones
 
And now, I feel the pain of growin' old I hear voices in the rain
I see a vision of doubt that keeps rollin' through my baby's eyes
When she calls out my name each time that she complains
 
Sems like we rolled bigger stones back then
Seems like we rolled bigger stones
 

I’m Not Your Angel

[Verse 1]
You take drugs to feel good girl
You lie like a liar should girl
You don't trust but who would girl
After all you've been through
 
I do blame you for this now
It's your fault, and I know how
You lie when you move your mouth
'Cause after all we've been through
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I found you on the floor in the back of the room
Lights turned off, thought I had lost you
Thinking to November when everything was just better
Now I'm in the cop car, hear you screaming out the window to
 
[Chorus]
Save you, save you from yourself
You're falling dangerously close to hell, oh well
There's secrets that you just won't tell
You're falling dangerously close to hell, oh well
 
[Verse 2]
Do the drugs girl, make your body numb girl
Tell me when it's done, when you're back I'll be gone girl
Living life alone now, it sucks you didn't know how
To choose between your demons
And the person who held you down girl
Do the drugs girl, make your body numb girl
Tell me when it's done, when you're back I'll be gone girl
Living life alone now, it sucks you didn't know how
To choose between your demons
And the person who held you down girl
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I found you on the floor in the back of the room
Lights turned off, thought I had lost you
Thinking to November when everything was just better
Now I'm in the cop car, hear you screaming out the window to
 
[Chorus]
Save you, save you from yourself
You're falling dangerously close to hell, oh well
There's secrets that you just won't tell
You're falling dangerously close to hell, oh well
 
[Outro]
There's secrets that you just won't tell
You're falling dangerously close to hell, oh well
 

Hell is wherever you’re alive

[Hook]
You think you’re fucking special, but you’re all the same
You love the way you hurt me, I swear you’re insane
Getting high babe hell is wherever you’re alive
You think you’re fucking special, but you’re all the same
 
[Verse]
You’re sad as fuck, and you love
Getting high while you cry girl
You love the pain and I swear
Ya stay sad but fake mad girl
Ya hide behind your make up
A pretty face, full of hate girl
I hope you never see my
Face again, I had plans girl
But they never work out the way that I plan it
I’m honestly bout you why won’t you just see that
I’m starting to believe I’m just not made for this
Tonight I’ll get so fucked and thinking about ending
Oh ending girl
 
[Hook]
You think you’re fucking special, but you’re all the same
You love the way you hurt me, I swear you’re insane
Getting high babe hell is wherever you’re alive
You think you’re fucking special, but you’re all the same
 

I never thought you’d be my enemy

Oh, you fucked up anything we could be
I never thought you'd be my enemy
Just say you hate me babe it's clear to me
I don't know why you're here and still crying
Please stop this pathetic apology
 
I never thought you'd be my enemy
Just say you hate me babe it's clear to me
I don't know why you're here and still crying
Please stop this pathetic apology
 
You fucked up anything we could be, oh
You fucked up anything we could be, oh, we can't be, now
 
I feel like you and I, nah fuck this you and I shit
I feel myself in I, need some alone time
 
Sometime to clear my mind, it's hardest when I find
You right inside the lie, I thought I knew my bride
I thought I knew my mind, you cheated, lied and died
You're dead to me this time, I'm fucking sick of trying
 
To be alright this time, go ahead and fucking cry
I'm always wrong, you're right, hell is where you're alive
 
I never thought you'd be my enemy
Just say you hate me babe it's clear to me
I don't know why you're here and still crying
Please stop this pathetic apology
 
I never thought you'd be my enemy
Just say you hate me babe it's clear to me
I don't know why you're here and still crying
Please stop this pathetic apology
 
You fucked up anything we could be, oh
You fucked up anything we could be, oh, we can't be
 

Get On Your Feet

[Verse 1:]
You say I know it's a waste of time
There's no use trying
So scared that life's gonna pass you by
Your spirit dying
 
Not long ago
I could feel your strength
And your devotion
What was so clear is now overcast
 
With mixed emotions
Deep in your heart is the answer
Find it
I know it will pull you through
 
[Chorus:]
Get on your feet
Get up and make it happen
Get on your feet
Stand up and take some action
 
[Verse 2:]
I think it's true that we've all been through
Some nasty weather
Let's understand that we're here to
Handle things together
 
You gotta keep looking onto tomorrow
There's so much in life
That's meant for you
 
[Chorus:]
Get on your feet
Get up and make it happen
Get on your feet
Stand up and take some action
 
Get on your feet
Don't stop before it's over
Get on your feet
The weight is off your shoulder
 
Get up and make it happen
Stand up, stand up, stand up
And take some action
Gotta get on your feet, yeah, yeah
 
Don't stop before it's over
Get on your feet
The weight is off your shoulder
 
Get on your feet
Get up
Get up, get up
And make it happen
 
Get on your feet
Stand up
Stand up
And take some action
Get on your feet
 

La Primera

It was a long hard voyage to the Americas
In 1493
I was afraid that I would die of thirst
The little mare beside me died
And was put into the sea, but I survied
I swam to shore, I am La Primera
 
When Cortes sailed from Mexico
From that island in the sun
There were 16 of us,
Sorrels, blacks and bays.
One of them was my first born
He was called the 'Coyote Dun'
He served well the conquered of Mexico
 
I am a drinker of the wind
I am the one who never tires
I love my freedom more than all these things
The Conquistador, Comanche and the Cowboy
I carried them to glory
I am La Primera- Spanish mustang
Hear my story
 
The Comanches were holy terrors
When they climbed upon our backs
When the grass was high
They would raid for a thousand miles
But the Texans had revolvers
When they returned from the war
The buffalo had gone away
The Comanche moon was waning
 
So it's come along boys and listen to my tale
We are following the longhorn cow
Going up Mister Goodnite's trail you see
Those cowboys were kind to us
We listen to their sad songs
All the way to the far Saskatchewan
 
I am a drinker of the wind
I am the one who never tires
I love my freedom more than all these things
The Conquistador, Comanche and the Cowboy
I carried them to glory
I am La Primera- Spanish mustang
Hear my story
 
High in the Pyor Mountains
First light of dawn
Coyote Dun walks beneth the morning Star
He became an outlaw and his blood was
Watered some, but the flame still burns
Into the new millennium
 
I am a drinker of the wind
I am the one who never tires
I love my freedom more than all these things
The Conquistador, Comanche and the Cowboy
I carried them to glory
I am La Primera- Spanish mustang
Hear my story
 
La Primera- Spanish mustang
Hear my story...
 

Spinning Wheel

Mellow the moonlight to shine is beginning
Close by the window young Eileen is spinning
Bent o’er the reel her blind grandmother sitting
Is moaning and crooning and drowsily knitting
 
O merrily, cheerily, noisily whirring
Spins the wheel, swings the wheel while the foot’s stirring
Sprightly and lightly and airily ringing
Sounds the sweet voice of the young maiden singing
 
“Eileen, a chara, I hear someone tapping'
''Tis the ivy, dear mother, against the glass flapping'
“Eileen, I surely hear somebody sighing'
“'Tis the sound, mother dear, of the autumn winds dying'
 
O merrily, cheerily, noisily whirring
Spins the wheel, swings the wheel while the foot’s stirring
Sprightly and lightly and airily ringing
Sounds the sweet voice of the young maiden singing
 
There’s a form at the casement, the form of her true love
He whispers with face bent, “I'm waiting for you, love
Get up from the stool, through the lattice step lightly
And we’ll rove in the grove while the moon’s shining brightly'
 
O merrily, cheerily, noisily whirring
Spins the wheel, swings the wheel while the foot’s stirring
Sprightly and lightly and airily ringing
Sounds the sweet voice of the young maiden singing
 
The maid shakes her head, to her lips lays her fingers
Leaps up from the stool, longs to go and yet lingers
A frightened glance turns to her drowsy grandmother
Puts one foot on the stool, spins the wheel with the other
 
O lazily, hazily, noiselessly whirring
Lower and slower is heard the reel’s whirring
Noiseless and light through the lattice above her
The maid steps, then leaps to the arms of her lover
 
Slower and slower and slower the wheel turns
Lower and lower, and lower the reel rings
Ere the wheel and the reel stop their spinning and moving
Through the grove the young lovers by moonlight are roving
 

Tear Down The House

Tear down the house that I grew up in.
I'll never be the same again.
Take everything that I've collected,
and throw it in a pile.
 
Bulldoze the woods that I ran through.
Carry the pictures of me and you.
I have no memory of who I once was,
and I don't remember your name.
 
Park the old car that I love the best.
Inspection's due and it won't pass the test.
It's funny how I have to put it to rest,
and how one day I will join it.
 
I remember crying over you,
and I don't mean like a couple of tears and I'm blue.
I'm talking about collapsing and screaming at the moon,
but I'm a better man for having gone through it.
Yes, I'm a better man for having gone through.
 
Ever since I learned how to curse.
I've been using those sorry old words.
But I'm talking to these children and I'm keeping it clean.
I don't need those words to say what I mean.
No, I don't need those words to say what I mean
 
Tear down the house that I grew up in.
I'll never be the same again.
Take everything that I used to own,
and burn it in a pile
 
Bulldoze the woods that I ran through.
Carry the pictures of me and you.
I have no memory of who I once was,
and I don't remember your name.
 

Open Ended Life

Pack a change of clothes
and a pillow for the road for when we drift off to sleep
Put the sketches and the notes in a box labeled 'burn with furniture'
We will watch the fire burn the whole entire house we built down to ashes
From the mirror we'll admire how the flame quickly retires
we won't waste no long goodbyes on the smoke or foolish lies
that finally passed us
 
Let's find something new to talk about
I'm tired talkin' 'bout myself
I spent my whole life talking to convince everyone
that I was something else
And the part that kinda hurts
is I think it finally worked
and now I'm leaving
I get the feeling things have changed
but the mystery to me
is where and when along the way
did anyone decide that they believed me
 
I was taught to keep an open-ended life
and never trap myself in nothin'
I was told to keep an open-ended life
and never trap yourself in nothin'
 
When we settle down in another nowhere town
let's tell our neighbors
We won't be here long
and we'll be quiet but don't go asking any favors
I can't stand the unexpected, uninvited visits from too many strangers
My trust has dwindled down
and I can leave here just as abruptly as I came here.
 
I was taught to keep an open-ended life
and never trap myself in nothin'
I was told to keep an open-ended life
and never trap yourself in nothin'
 

Smithsonian

Call the Smithsonian I made a discovery
Life ain't forever and lunch isn't free
Loved ones will break your heart with or without you
Turns out we don't get to know everything
 
Get the young scientists, tell them 'come quick'
I must be the first man that's ever seen this
Lines on my face, my teeth are not white
My eyes do not work and my legs don't move right
 
Call the Smithsonian I made a discovery
Life ain't forever and lunch isn't free
Loved ones will break your heart with or without you
Turns out we don't get to know everything
 
I wonder if Romeo ever got scared
Taken but shaken, unprepared
Under the balcony, under the trees
Fully unknowing of where this would lead
What if we marry or give up the ghost?
Or we abandon those we love most?
What if you carry me and lay me down
Once you get used to me being around?
 
Call the Smithsonian I made a discovery
Life ain't forever and lunch isn't free
Loved ones will break your heart with or without you
Turns out we don't get to know everything
 
My bedroom's an office, my kitchen's a car
My life is a joke and my bathroom's a bar
I go there a lot, more than I should
I know I should stop but it feels too damn good
 
Call the Smithsonian I made a discovery
Life ain't forever and lunch isn't free
Loved ones will break your heart with or without you
Turns out we don't get to know everything
 

Vanity

I've got something to say
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
I found a tune I could play
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
 
Call off the guards
Call off the search
Their heads are chopped off
They're running in circles
They're running in circles
 
I have a plan for the day
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
I've got love pouring out of my veins
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
 
Call off the guards
Call off the search
Their heads are chopped off
They're running in circles
They're running in circles
Running in circles
They're running in circles
 
I've got something to say
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
I've got love pouring out of my veins
But it's all vanity, it's all vanity
 

Divorce Separation Blues

I'm gonna keep on living
Even though I sometimes do
Fantasize about disappearing
Down in the ocean blue
Just to get some peace and quiet
From the warfare inside my heart
Well I've been under ear-splitting fire
Ever since we've been apart
Well I'm gonna wash the dishes
Pay the bills and watch the news
I've got the tough education
No celebration
Divorce separation blues
 
Yodel eh hee yodelo lodi lay he yodel lay he
 
Well I'm gonna keep on waking
And rising up before the sun
And lying in the dark wide awake
When everybody else is done
And sleeping in their beds so peaceful
Dreaming with the love they choose
I've got the tough education
No celebration
Divorce separation blues
 
Yodel eh hee yodelo lodi lay he yodel lay he
 
And I'll sign on
The line beneath my name
The road is gone
I can't go back the way we came
 
Well neither one of us
Really wanna hit the town
We try to keep our friends at bay
Try to keep the gossip down
Well some folks just want the dirt
And don't even care if it's true
But then again who cares who's talking
I'm worried for myself and you
 
And I'll sign on
The line beneath my name
The road is gone
I can't go back the way we came
 
They say one of every two
Bound to be set aflame
Every level of resentment
Responsibility and blame
Well now I'm bound to break a promise
One I made to God and you
 
I've got the tough education
No celebration
Divorce separation blues
 
I've got the tough education
No celebration
Bad communication
Worse interpretation
Love deprivation
Pain allocation
Soul devastation
Cold desolation
Life complication
Resuscitation
Divorce separation blues
 
Yodel eh hee, olay hee, olay hee, olay hee
Yodel eh hee yodelo lodi lay he yodel lay he
 

True Sadness

You were a friend to me when my wheels were off the track
I know you say there is no need, but I intend to pay you back
When my mind was turning loose and all my thoughts were turning black
You shined a light on me and I intend to pay you back
 
When I was a child, I depended on a bottle
Full-grown I've been known to lean on a bottle
But you're the real deal in a world of imposters
And I've seen the program make men out of monsters
 
'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers and you will find
True sadness
 
Adam and Eve must have really done a number
On that garden when the apple was finished
Leaving behind them a den made of sadness
A damage that can't or won't be replenished
 
'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers and you will find
True sadness
 
Angela became a target
As soon as her beauty was seen
By young men who try to reduce her down
To a scene on an X rated screen
 
Is she not more than the curve of her hips?
Is she not more than the shine on her lips?
Does she not dream to sing and to live and to dance down her own path
Without being torn apart?
Does she not have a heart?
 
I cannot go on with this evil inside me
I step out my front door and I feel it surround me
Just know the kingdom of God is within you
Even though the battle is bound to continue
 
'Cause I still wake up shaken by dreams
And I hate to say it but the way it seems
Is that no one is fine
Take the time to peel a few layers and you will find
True sadness
True sadness
True true sadness
 

Satan Pulls The Strings

Baby's in the cradle, Mama's in the bed
Sparrow's on the windowsill and the devil's in my head.
Devil's in my head mama, devil's in my head
Baby's in the cradle and the devil's in my head
 
When the winter yields to summertime
The whip-poor-will she sings
My heart is in the puppet box and Satan pulls the strings
Satan pulls the strings mama, Satan pulls the strings
My heart is in the puppet box and Satan pulls the strings
 
Well the front beat's in my brother, Lord
And the back beat's in me
God is in the song and the devil's in my feet
Lord, devil's in our feet, mama devil's in our feet
God is in the song and the devil's in our feet
 
Mama's cooking something up, serving to us all
Satan's ringing in now and I gotta take the call
Gotta take the call, boys, gotta take the call
Satan's ringing in now and I gotta take the call
Gotta take the call, boys, gotta take the call
Satan's ringing in now and I gotta take the call
 

You Are Mine

You are mine
The edge I need when I am out of line
The air I breathe when I believe I'm dying
I guess you are there
 
It is told
With age our hearts are destined to grow cold
Well I won't argue that but this I know
The snow won't fall on me
 
Life goes yes I guess it's true
Why close down we'll follow soon
Where we are is not so far from where we're gonna be
You and me
 
Our life is a heel
With danger in our hearts the roads our field
With shadows deep as dark girl grip your wheel
Push your moment through
 
Life goes yes I guess it's true
Why close down we'll follow soon
Where we are is not so far from where we're gonna be
You and me
You and me
 
You are mine
The first to kiss the last to say goodbye
The answer to the question who do I owe my everything?
 
Life goes yes I guess it's true
Why close down we'll follow soon
Where we are is not so far from where we're gonna be
You and me
You and me
 

Push Me To The Floor

And don't stand next to me
And think it comes so easy
I am not your toy
Cause you think love is something new
But it is just a tool
To make it alright
 
Push me to the floor
Don't give up until I'm begging you for more
I'll be thinking of the time
I felt inspired
 
And don't stand next to me
I'll love the smell of ecstasy
It makes me feel inspired
Cause you think love is like a
Sunrise up against you somehow
You're always right
 
Push me to the floor
Don't give up until I'm begging you for more
I'll be thinking of the time
I felt inspired
 
Push me to the floor
Make me think that you're the one that I adore
Till the morning we will be as if
We're meant to be
 
And your word is worth nothing
When it's at someone else's cost
And fortunes not appreciated
When the sweet stuff comes too fast
 
Push me to the floor
Don't give up until I'm begging you for more
I'll be thinking of the time
I felt inspired
 
Push me to the floor
Make me think that you're the one that I adore
Till the morning we will be as if
We're meant to be
 
Push me to the floor
 
I'll be thinking of the time
I felt inspired
 

Stars Fall Down

Trace my face while it's a happy face
When my smile fades
I wanna remember this day
Passion killed by the comfort of time
I'm sorry if this makes you cry, but I Have to speak
My mind
 
Suck the colours from my eyes
When they lose their sparkle and
Forget to shine
Remember all the times you turned me down
I'm sorry if this hurts your heart but
Where's the spark, from the start?
 
Don't stop, don't stop
Nothing lasts forever, soon we will be sober
So let's laugh, talk, tickle and taste
Till the star fall down
The stars fall down
 
Embrace my reflection for a little while
If I am to love I must try love myself
Cuddle with a cold corpse like frame
I'm sorry if my view of matrimony
Seems obscure, where's the fuel?
 
Don't stop, don't stop
Nothing lasts forever, soon we will be sober, Illuminated by the blood red sun
Let's rather lament on this starlight event
 
Dance, dance, dance naked under starlight
There's something about the glow
That flows just right
Let's make tonight last
Forget about the past
 
So let's laugh, talk, tickle and taste
Till the star fall down
The stars fall down
 
Don't stop, don't stop
Nothing lasts forever, soon we will be sober, Illuminated by the blood red sun
 
Let's fantasise, before the real world comes crashing and colliding
Like lightning's angry temperament
Bubbling teenage love, time will soon be up
 
Don't stop, don't stop
Nothing lasts forever soon we will be sober
Trace my face while it's a happy face
When my smile fades and I'm old and grey
All I'll have are these moments to retrace
