O'Day

You tell me that you love me
you really come on strong
What about the lady that you've got at home?

Please come on in....
Please come on in....

Love me or leave me let me be lonely
I'd rather be lonely than happy with somebody else....
Somebody else......

You might find the night time
the right time for kissin'
regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else

You tell me I'm your baby
that you dig me the most
what about the babies that you have from coast to coast?

Please come on in....
Please come on in....

Love me or leave me let me be lonely
I'd rather be lonely than happy with somebody else....
Somebody else......

Love me or leave me let me be lonely
You don't believe me, I love you only
I'd rather be lonely than happy with somebody else
Somebody else..........................................................................................

Cemetery Boys

I love to dance with cemetery boys
the moon comes out the dead rejoice
no time to waste, the hours fade
they come awake - the dead parade

fresh souls in the corn field
Derock put them there
and it's good it's real good!

I love to kiss cemetery boys
their lips are hard, their eyes like voids
i call them up they come to me
they get me hot - pure ecstasy

fresh souls in the corn field
Alex put them there
and it's good it's real good!

I love to sleep with Cemetery boys
their lips are cold, their hair full of soil
pale pale flesh pressed to my cheek
when we make love, stiff muscles creak

fresh souls in the corn field
Front Row put them there
and it's good it's real good!

I love to love cemetery boys
I love to love cemetery boys
I wish they all could be cemetery boys.........

Tell Me

Boy, how would you like me to be?
Lunch with moms or down on my knees
I can be your fantasy
So, all together, birds of a feather,
won't you whisper your pleasures in my ear...

tell me the things you want
tell me the things you need
tell me the things you want
and don't hold back now...

Tell me what you wanna tell me
don't tell me no
Tell me what you wanna tell me
don't tell me no

Boy, I gotta know
would you like to see me with
my cherry covered in cream
I can make you shiver and scream
so like Ritchie to Donna or Ike & Tina Turner
won't you whisper your "wannas" in my ear...

tell me the things you want
tell me the things you need
tell me the things you want
and don't hold back now...

Tell me what you wanna tell me
don't tell me no
Tell me what you wanna tell me
don't tell me no

You're the one I want I know
Got a chance to let it show
Somethin' 'bout you seems so true
I just want to get with you....

Tell me what you wanna tell me
don't tell me no
Tell me what you wanna tell me
don't tell me no

The Crapper

Even though your life might be headed for the crapper
and all your dreams of what you thought this life would be have shattered
your friends can't help, your money's gone, your plants have died, you're all alone...
try to keep your head!

Lift up your chin, laugh & grin & use your sense of humor
tell a joke toke a smoke have a drink wash off your stink
go to AA, hug a tree, goddammit do anything - sing! Falalalalalalalala laaaa!

Ringin' & Ringin'

Met him on a subway hearin' what he had to say he wasn't talkin' to me he was talkin at me and I noticed he was carrying a soda Mr. Pibb - it was over I was so in love My love is ringin Met him at a party it may have been a Thursday we were eating all of the crackers we weren't invited by the party throwin' bastards and I noticed he was carrying a pamphlet "Free Tibet" & it was over I was so in love My love is ringin' You're the kind of boy who's like a wrecking ball. I wanna ride you through the rubble - wanna be your wall. Hey, you're the kinda lover that I wanna win - I wanna jump you like in checkers - wanna be your kid... My love is ringin'

It Ain't Funny

Ain't it a gas
that boy in your math class
the one that everybody teases & calls punk ass
you know the one in P.E. he's always picked last
the one who's fun to bully
oh it's such a blast
That one - that you punked & overpowered
and the teacher don't say shit 'cuz he's a coward

(yeah I know that nerd - geek)

Well today he wasn't in the classroom
he was hanging from a jump rope in the gym bathroom

I'm here to tell ya -
It ain't funny!

We're not laughing with you - we're laughing at you

Oh it's a riot
and even though she'll deny it
she lost 20 pounds a week on the bullemia diet
you know the one - the girl you tease in the halls
short & kinda chubby so you call her Biggie Smalls
that one who you tease & you taunt
now she's skeleton skinny with her face all gaunt

(yeah, she's kinda lookin like a model)

Well today she wasn't in the classroom
she was throwin up her lunch in the gym bathroom

It ain't funny!

We're not laughing with you - we're laughing at you

Here's the clincher the real punchline
the joke's on us & we're running out of time
so save your giggles & take a breath
'cuz that shit ain't funny & we're laughing ourselves to death.

Go Back

Livin' by myself, the walls are getting whiter and my clothes are getting tighter each day
Livin' all alone, my meals are more meager, I'm a kitty with a fishbone.
I'm overwhelmed and underweight. I've gotta stop and think.
Where can I go now? Where can I go now?

Go back to the very first day of your life; do it right.

Feelin' all alone, my innocence was stolen, I'm a prisoner in my own bones.
I thought I'd have an easy life, just like all my friends.
Where can I go now? I've lost control now.

Go back to the very first day of your life; do it right.

I say no to everybody just to have control.
Where can I go now? Where can I go now?

Go back to the very first day of your life; do it right.

Flow

La lalalalalalalalalalalalalala la lala lala lalala lala
La lalalalalalalalalalalalalala la lala lala lalala lala

I only want you to like me
So I'll never, never tell the truth
The truth might sell me short
I'm naked pauper in the queen's court

I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential
I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential

I'll tell you my buddies are all stars
And show you autographs on my books and my balls
You ask why do I bother with other peoples' stories
When mine are smaller, but more funny

I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential
I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential

Impressions…that's how I flow
Impressions…that's how I flow
Impressions…that's how I flow

I only want you to like me, so I'll never, never tell the truth
I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential
I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential
I'll take my chances and lie so you can see my full potential

Impressions…that's how I flow
Impressions…that's how I flow
Impressions…that's how I flow

La lalalalalalalalalalalalalala la lala lala lalala lala

Ringin' and Ringin'

Met him on a Subway hearin' what he had to say he wasn't talkin' to me he was talkin' at me and I noticed he was carrying a soda Mr. Pibb - it was over - I was so in love
My love is ringin' & ringin' & ringin & ringin & ringin'
Met him at a party, it may have been a Thursday we were eating all of the crackers we weren't invited by the party throwin' bastards and I noticed he was carrying a pamphlet "Free Tibet" & it was over - I was so in love
My love is ringin' & ringin' & ringin & ringin & ringin'
You're the kind of boy who's like a wrecking ball. I wanna ride you through the rubble - wanna be your wall. Hey, you're the kinda lover that I wanna win - I wanna jump you like in checkers - wanna be your kid...
My love is ringin'

Junk Drawer

VERSE I
whenever you need, need something, I'm always there, standing near
like a piece of tape or a three year warranty walk over to me
A life time guaranty walk over to me
I'm the Elmer's glue when you're coming apart
I'm the three new batteries when you're half worn out
I'm the paper clip that keeps us together

CHORUS I
I'm your junkdrawer look inside of me
A three year warranty walk over to me
A life time guaranty, I'm your junkdrawer look inside of me

BRIDGE
I'm not your china cup, I'm not your spit-shine silver
But I'm doing my best, I'm doing my best to delivery
I'm not the crystal sittin' way up here on the shelf
I'm down here just speakin for myself... I'm in love

CHORUS II
I'm your junkdrawer look inside of me
A three year warranty walk over to me
A life time guaranty, I'm your junkdrawer look inside of me

VERSE II
I'm the safety pin that holds your youth
I'm the numbing gel for your broken tooth
the tangled jewelry when we have a fight
I'm the girlie playing cards that you play all night

CHORUS III
I'm your junkdrawer look inside of me
A three year warranty walk over to me
A life time guaranty, I'm your junkdrawer look inside of me

BRIDGE ALTRO
I'm not your china cup, I'm not your spit-shined silver
But I'm doing my best, I'm doing my best to deliver
I'm not the crystal sittin' way up here on the shelf
I'm down here just speakin for myself... I'm in love

Straight Lines


Street light change & cross a little lady holding groceries
Three o'clock the kids are walkin' cross the street & someone holds a stop sign
...and I blow away, not knowing myself today
...my eyes don't focus straight - I'm wondering about ????

Old man toothless stops me on the street as I'm dragging down my laundry
He knows about the past of my place, he remembers ladies dancing
...What the fuck does he care? There's no room for him here.
...All his teeth are gone...no one ever wrote him a love song...

Straight lines beat waves over time
Straight lines beat waves over time
Straight lines beat waves over time

...and I blow away not knowing myself today....

Lettenem Know

I know I loved you, 'cuz now I hate you, I'm locked in your dark double feature
I'm not your mama, and I'm not the star of your melodrama, that silver screen ending can't be found.
And now there's no question. I'm so tired of this self-deception - dying for a drop of attention.

Moon is falling down down down
You keep calling around around around
You're up on my footsteps like a hound a hound a hound
&
You've got to find your way, got to find your way, you'll find your way.

I'm not a clinic, for emperor's tempers or intimate cynics, like you would love for me to be.
(I was) pressing the lever. Like a rat with a violent experimentor. Look who has control now, baby.
And now there's no question. I'm so tired of this self-deception, dying for a drop of attention.

Moon is falling down down down
You keep calling around around around
You're up on my footsteps like a hound a hound a hound
&
You've got to find your way, got to find your way, you'll find your way.

Lick my heart then you smash it, it's like crawling after a dangling carrot, now I'm saying goodbye to you.

::repeat chorus::

Lighter Now

You took me for a fool
I saw lines and lines of people on the sides & sides of churches in the dark
Church is falling into graves
there's clouds hanging over the house that I just bought, and I thought
I could be a happy girl now

I walk around a little bit tighter now
I'm just a little lot less lighter now

Seems like I'm always fighting angels
It's like I can never see their wings
I'm walking around, holding hands with the devil
...just as he wants me to be

I walk around a little bit tighter now
I'm just a little lot less lighter now

All my friends are having visions, sensations, all kinds of revelations
Oh damn
But who's telling lies to who?
And who's watching you escape from what you thought was true?
What's true?

I walk around a little bit tighter now...(drain all your innocence)
I'm just a little lot less lighter now....(drain all your innocence)

drain all your innocence

Poke Me With a Fork

Here we're selling plots of land,
American Dream is close at hand
Build a house of the least expense
Surround it with a chain link fence
Got a car that's shiny and fast
Now I've got success at last

Poke me with … Poke me with… poke me with a fork I'm done
Poke me with … Poke me with …poke me with a fork I'm done

Here we're selling plots of land,
American Dream is close at hand
Build a house of the least expense
Surround it with a chain link fence
Got a car that's shiny and fast
Now I've got success at last

I've seen the faces of a million human beings they told me everything
I've seen the faces of a million fighting men they told me everything
I've seen the faces of a million refugees …...they told me everything
I've seen the faces of a million presidents and now I know, now I know everything

Poke me with … Poke me with… poke me with a fork I'm done
Poke me with … Poke me with …poke me with a fork I'm done

I've seen the faces of a million human beings they told me everything
I've seen the faces of a million fighting men they told me everything
I've seen the faces of a million refugees …...they told me everything
I've seen the faces of a million presidents and now I know, now I know e v e r y t h a n g

Poke me with … Poke me with… poke me with a fork I'm done
Poke me with … Poke me with …poke me with a fork I'm done!

It's Rain

Get Me Out
you know, this isn't how I usually am
I'll make it up to you
in some not-so-desperate time

It's ridiculous, though possibly
I am scared of my own jealousy
which is sure to place a hurdle on my track

Everything is right as rain, but it's rain....

If I tone my legs in waterfalls,
& I bathe my skin in the royal salts,
maybe then I'll have the strength to make the jump

If I tie my Nikes really tight
and I teach my goldfish to help me fight,
maybe then I won't feel so alone

Everything is right as rain, but it's rain....
Everything is clear as day, but it's rain...

I gotta cough up my pride until the morning comes,
only then I'll realise I'm the runner up...
baby, you know that the trick is just to breathe....

Everything is right as rain, but it's still rain....

It keeps me up at night, and if you really want to know everything ....?

Everything is right as rain, but it's rain....

She got a suntan, she got cancer
She told me lies, she was a dancer
He ate the MSG, He got cancer
Too much driving, we got CANCER

Primary

Blue, I sip you slowly,
smoke you 'till my lips get thin
The Wind's tastin' like berries,
when you're struttin' in your bad ass sharkskin

Green apples in the orchard
But we stay in bed all day
Eatin' ruddy skinned pears
And lickin' all my cares away

Red, you stop me
Panting through the burnin' day
But I'll work to remember you badly
Black is dead is gone is gone

I bite your yellow fingers
Lost inside your Marigold
Our news on brittle paper
Too smart to let the gingham grow old

Red, you stop me
Panting through the burnin' day
But I'll work to remember you badly
Black is dead is gone is gone
I'll work to remember you badly
Black is dead is gone is gone

WHITE LIES
WHITE LIES
WHITE LIES
WHITE LIES

Orange, you scare me
Twist me in your macrame
That carpet smells like lovers
The tangy air of a memory laid

Pink, I was Jello melting
Champagne poppin' under your skin
I powder puffed your silly
And sugar-coated your secret sin

WHITE LIES
WHITE LIES

You've made that purple corner
The tipsy colors in center stage
I laugh in the bruises
Too young to let the Winter stay

Red, you stop me
Panting through the burnin' day
But I'll work to remember you badly
Black is dead is gone is gone
I'll work to remember you badly
Black is dead is gone is gone

WHITE LIES
WHITE LIES
WHITE LIES, baby
WHITE LIES

Still I Love You

BRIDGE
Hello, come in, I'm warm with pardon
Hang on, don't go, it just got started
Our life has grown, why now be parted?

VERSE I
What about holy?
What about virtue?
What about justice?
What about hope?
What about tomorrow?
What about tomorrow?

CHORUS I

VERSE II
What about trusting?
What about secrets?
What about the time spent?
What about laughter?
Why all the bullshit?
What about friendship?

CHORUS II
Still I love you more than life itself
Still I love you more than life itself

BRIDGE
Hello, come in, it just got started

VERSE III
What about holy?

Still I love you more than life itself
Still I love you more than life itself
