Underground
Sitting by a judas mantel
underneath where i cant tell
found the places im destroying
only hoped you'd be there still
could not find a way to be it
i don't even mind this time
here wed like to get things over
life love anything at all
 and when the morning comes
well sit here and when the atom
breaks well just stare
and my life goes underground
and my life goes underground
 sitting by a judas mantel
underneath well I've been there
could not right
the only pieces
test out anything you will
 and when the morning comes
well sit here and when the atom
breaks well just stare
and my life goes underground
and my life goes underground
 sitting by a judas mantel
very well what we define
counted up the broken pieces
here we want to redefine
all dementia memory brought for
all the weakness we cant tell
understood that i discover
right here everything is well
 and when the morning comes
well sit here
and when the saddle breaks
ill stand still
and my life goes underground
and my life goes underground
 if i left it all the same well it
doesn't mean that its
not personal
and i never understood why the
faces faded its so irrational
as the atoms start to phase and
i knew it couldn't mean that
much to me
 and i never understood where
the friends all go its
not personal now
Dogs
packed a lunch of tea and
orange at mercedes
five and dime
now im slipping out the back
door and im feeling alright
found the bosses gold
camero think ill
take it for a ride
cross the world to california
 where i know she's waiting
she picks me up like I've never
been down before
and its hard to think you got
the best of me yet
i cant believe while these
dogs are at the door honey
you came to take apart
what's left of me
 120 down the freeway about
a thousand miles to go
cross the border to resida
outskirts on the avenue
cant escape the operator
california here i come
groves are passing by the way
and i know its waiting
she picks me up like I've never
been down before
and its hard to think you got
the best of me yet
i cant believe while these
dogs are at the door honey
you came to take apart what's
left of me
 pileup on the berkshire turnstile
bout a thousand miles to go
there the feeling faded quickly
madonnas on the radio
packed a lunch of tea and
orange think ill take it for a ride
cross the world to california
where i know she's waiting
 she picks me up like I've never
been down before
and its hard to think you got
the best of me yet
i cant believe while these
dogs are at the door honey
you came to take apart what's
left of me
Breathe
save
save me from this
wondered around the town
all the thousand things
i might miss
and you
think we'll suffer much?
think we'll close our eyes?
just to see the light
pass us by
with tomorrow coming
hoping i don't let down again
said i'm so glad to be here
doesn't mean a thing
if only i could breathe what you breathe
if only only i could see what you see
 sit
we'll take our time
watching the flowers grow
all the friends you've known
say good-bye
and you
did you suffer much?
did you close your eyes?
just to see the night
brush on by
gathered all around you
hoping we don't let you down again
said im so glad to be here
doesn't mean a thing
if only i could breathe what you breathe
if only i could see what you see
said i'm so glad to be here
doesn't mean a thing
said im so glad to be here
doesn't mean a thing
yeah im so glad to be here
doesn't mean anything
if only i could breathe what you breathe
if only i could see what you see
if only i could just believe a thing
Fish
you can barely harm yourself you
very rarely temporarily climb
you overwhelm me
if you see the consequence you're
blind you humble dog you're mine
you overwhelm me in time
 in the sea completely real you
can always swim from the fish
and hide yourself
you try every night
to arm yourself
get high every night
prepare yourself to fly
 take a walk on the astro turf its
rolling foaling temporarily brown
you overwhelm me
you can put me
on a shelf for hours
a dreadful thirst and flowers
you overwhelm me in time
in the sea completely real you
can always swim from the fish
and hide yourself
you try every night
to arm yourself
get high every night
prepare yourself to fly
 in the sea completely real you
can always swim from the fish
and hide yourself
you try every night
pre arm yourself
get high every night
prepare yourself to fly
Comes and Goes
five o'clock and the day begins
i drown my head
to watch it sink or swim
coming down yesterday
we might get through
weigh yourself
then you weigh your friends
you weigh the truth
you feel it slipping in
i'll give it up in a hour or two
we'll be back again soon
i live my life
it's getting better everyday
i don't feel quite right
it's getting better everyday
and it comes and goes by now
yes it comes and goes by now
well it comes adn goes but now
it's getting better everyday
trick myself just to pass the time
to kill the day
it's starting to unwind
sinking fast in the morning light
we came unglues
another drink just for yesterday
to stem the tide
i feel it slip away
another trip just to drown my head
we'll be back soon
i live my life
it's getting better everyday
i don't feel quite right
it's getting better everyday
and it comes and goes by now
yes it comes and goes by now
well it comes adn goes but now
it's getting better everyday
Mike hammer
 wasted the day
come apart in pieces as she
takes her life so hard
took you on a holiday
complete with promises
of what we lost
 oh no i slipped again
i didn't mean to let you wander
took you by the hand to show
you places that
wed never been to
dressed us up in autumn blues
offered up as only you could
 every day
is easy money
a holiday
but maybe someday
well you and ill find our way
 burn the night and died in the
afterglow we hoped to find
did i forget to mention the one
small thing
a pleasure cruise
for only you and i
 later as the ship set sail i found
the deck in easy pieces
threw out all myself to save you
hoping that one shred
might get through
oh no i slipped again
i didn't mean to let you wander
every day
is easy money
a holiday
but maybe someday
well you and ill find
well you and ill find
our way
Tonight
she goes down like rain
she goes down the hard way
spilling herself on your body
 i wonder where you are tonight
just outside the dark
she waits by the highway
hoping to go
but her mind just stays
 i wonder where you are tonight
 ease into you ease into me
fell from the places
left to believe
all from the time
and time is what for
redress the weight
and bury the world
time will save
you come what may
 she goes down like rain
she goes down the hard way
trying ot run
but her mind just stays
 i wonder where you are tonight
Alive
feel the asthma fill the afternoon
what a glorious gloom
to be making my way through
curiosities the consequence
she brings
what a slippery fish
that the way she swings
i could argue
but we've gone too far
 i feel the sun
you could listen
but the sickly scent
of asthma never comes
i feel the sun
flip me over but the sickly scent
of asthma's just begun
did you ever feel the sun
 came together
just to pass the time
well she goaded me on
then she blew my peace of mind
bit confused cause
its a hundred and three
its the blurriest world
 its the one that i see
i could argue
but it breaks my back
 i feel the sun
you could listen but the sickly
scent of asthma never comes
i feel the sun
flip me over but the sickly scent
of asthma's just begun
did you ever feel the sun
Pleasing falsetto
heat is rising
and the weight is on top of me
we've been smoking
and we got so high
cant imagine
that there's anyone stopping me
we got the devil in mind
 already they're all over me
cant say that i don't want it
 and she cried
well what do you think
i would do
when you lied
and what did you think
it would prove
all this time
and everything's all over you
she's got the devil in mind
 so we borrowed what we never
would undertake
cant imagine
what the gun was for
for one second
well i thought we might hesitate
she's got the devil in store
 alright now she's all over me
cant say that i don't need it
 and she cried
well what did you think
i would do
when you lied
and what did you think it would
prove
well with time
now everything's all over you
we got the devil in mind
 and she cried
well what did you think
i would do
when you lied
and what did you think
it would prove
well with time now everything's
all over you
we got the devil in mind
 heat is rising
and the weight is on top of me
we've been smoking
and we got so high
cant imagine
that there's anyone stopping me
we got the devil in mind
Mandolin
here she comes in candlelight
setting like a full moon over
summer eyes
under colden light
where the waters gone
and the water says
what water will be done
down stream and out of town
screams surrendering
and i called out her name
when the elevator came
but its much to late
to be the same
 down down never come again
overthrusted driving rain
down down all the way up
 and she's running
where the river takes her
 took your love into the street
cover of the long tall grass
of ecstasy
but the cities got to be my love
and i don't know
where the river takes you
i remember hollywood
battery of lonesome girls
who felt so good
and i swore on her name
when the elevator came
that the doors
would close on blame
here she comes in candle light
setting like a full moon over
summer eyes
where the cold lime like
a water gun
and the water says
what water will be done
takes a stream to center street
wandering like a quick forced
Place
jessy is calling out from space
says that she needs me
cant replace
she comes over rips me open
just to see my special place
 now she is calling out for light
hoping the wings
of freedom will arrive
she comes over
touches down here
right before my eyes
kills forever knowing full well we
will all get by
she comes over rips me open
just to see my
special little place
 sorry i gave back
salt tasted
lightly wasted
here i give back
all of the words
and memories brought by
time came by
promises spoken by me
 i didn't want
so much
to think about too much
to abide complain till its over
over and over again
 jessy is calling out from space
hoping the sound of her voice
will erase me
she comes over
rips me open
right before my eyes
kills forever knowing full well we
will all get by
she comes over rips me open
just to see my
special little place
so sorry that you changed
but nothing stays the same
Liberation
so we jump back quick so
frenzied sucking on the
cigarette in her hand
a buxom bosom wet like
waterfall it wasn't wasted
so come laugh come love
come borrow everything you
need me to be
feel it pouring in
liberation dies again
 and we climbed so hard and
fast so lovely
just like it was before
emptied out her life opened up
on the opposite shore
and i cannot believe that we
conceived what we
were contemplating
its alright by me
 please help me cause im lost
and i cant see
which way we go
im a victim just the backlash
of your cold philosophy if you
cant help me i will help myself
or so this story goes
 undid the knot the lock the
pertenity violin in her hand
began to understand the interiors
its operatic now
so laugh and love and borrow
everything you wanted
me to be
pouring in like life
till liberation dies again
please help me cause im lost
 and i cant see which way we go
im a victim just the backlash of
our cold philosophy if you
cant help me i will help myself or
so the story goes
i got a sense that something
now im left with nothing
i had hoped to be
as broad as i can be
 indivisible by me
indestructible by thee
all the places that
i had hoped to free
and all in want of nothing
pleasure slides escapes me
undermining
Deliver Me

bread by desire
malignant story line
tried so hard to find it
been so cold beside you
it comes and goes
please to deliver me
from myself
all is forgiven me

time will tell
but we don't know
