Anywhere With You
I know I can't come near you. Every time I do.
I get the shaking inside and the sun in my eyes.
So I'll stay away. I'd rather be here. Than anywhere with you. I've been dancing with your ghost. Toasting note to note. So
here's to the passing of all that could be. Between you and me. I know I cannot see you. Even if I wanted to. Because your
light is the light of ten sunsets. Circled by eyes burned blue and open wide
What Went Wrong
A month ago, there we were. Surrendering ourselves to the local police. Paying them not to tell while
we waited. We all sang a song of sorrow. Solely to remember what went wrong. Leonard looked like a ghost gave him a foot massage.
Molly shook like a fish dangling on a line. Walter wore women's clothes. We sang a song of sorrow. Solely to remember what
went wrong. In the darkness. We were all strip searched. But nothing was found. Suffering from the full cavity search. We
fell to our knees to repent. I can't recall right now what it was that we did. We sang a song of sorrow. Solely to remember
what went wrong.
Driving In The Dark
Life leaks from your fingertips. Onto sparkling pavement. Having heard the news you stumble, stuttering,
confused. Helicopters line the sky. Marching men are rolling by. Babies in their baskets blankly stare through space. Ever
since I first saw you. Standing in the black frozen night
I've been blind. But I'm driving in the dark towards you. Not
stopping till I catch the sunlight In my eyes. Sirens sing over the streets. Chimpanzees are on TV. Everybody's working waiting
for the week to end. Ever since I first saw you. Standing in the black frozen night. I've been blind. But I'm driving in the
dark towards you. Not stopping till I catch the sunlight. In my eyes. And nothing’s left to hide. Ever since I first
saw you. Standing in the black frozen night. I've been blind. I’m running out of time.
Let's call it off. I've had enough of the games. If you could see into me. All my veins are tangled up, tied in
knots. My heart beats slowly now, it's emptying into the streets. Swirling straight away down the drain and back to sea. When
is the time when you aren't in my mind? Setting flames, ravaging all my dreams. When can I finally wake to the sunlight shining
on my cheeks. And the wind sweeping me away. Far from every memory with your face in the frame. That'll be the day. When the
sky starts burning, the Earth ain’t moving. We all become sane. And we rise in the morning to kiss the scorching sun
for it falls.
Bottles breaking on my face. Are only a reminder of your love I lost a lifetime ago. Was I dreaming when
I knew you? I don't know. So once again I swim in reverie. Without your love. Feels so long ago I can't remember now. Where
we began. Smell of burning photographs slides slowly to my nostrils. I try remembering the soft silence of summer sweating
in the evening.
Morning In The Moonlight
I'm all out of time. Watching a swaying tide. Tomorrow has died. Guess no one gets out alive.
The moonlight in the morning sun sends shivers over my skin. My memories are slowly slipping and I'm sailing against the wind.
Madness ensues. Swimming in ocean blues. The dream dripping sky. Covers my insides. The moonlight in the morning sun sends
shivers over my skin. My memories are slowly slipping and I'm sailing against the wind.
Hello me, are you in there? Making sure you're not dead. Smelled some rotting flesh. I heard you left him alone.
Sun's up with open roads. Get down, freak out. The time is right now. Drop your things and burn your clothes. Why we're here,
no one knows. Watch the bombs explode. He sold you a dream and carved you up like meat. Laid down the law, locked your heart
behind bars. While you were sleeping he would whisper in your ear. "The monkey will bite. Better eat your poultry too. There's
no use, don't try to ask the doctor. What's going on inside your head. Just fall out and get in line like all good soldiers
do. You awoke to his game. Running circles in your brain. Can't believe your eyes. What's up? What is down? He spun you around.
What's near? What is far? God knows what you are. Can you remember when this began? "The monkey will bite. Better eat your
poultry too. There's no use, don't try to ask the doctor. What's going on inside your head it's pretend/ There's no meaning
just stare at the ceiling. And play dead for your whole life"
In My Waking Life
I'm never in my waking life. Dreaming is my all the time. Whether it's the weather or my mind. It's
all too much. Calling in the frigid wind, A whisper is my dearest friend. Leading me along a lily laden twisting trail. Where
we go, will tomorrow know? Into the vast and empty alleys we proceed. Crawling over cloudy streets. Streaming with a billion
feet. Fumbling along into the dark and dismal day. Where we go, will tomorrow know? Into the vast and empty alleys we proceed.
Forever winding our way weary without sleep.
She is a dying dandelion floating on the breeze. Swirling sweetly in the evening. She is the stars glowing gorgeously.
She is the sloping clouds. Forever scrolling. Unfolding. She is the sun burned blue. Shadows on the moon. She is the morning
dew. Dangling on leaves leaking into streams. Forever flowing. Unfolding. No one can say her name. Now she sits and sings
something about my dreams. Hours go bye before she looks at me. She breaks my heart. As I open my eyes to drink the melon
Where Are You
Where are you and where am I? We've been slipping slowly south. I guess my tongue is tied. To the starry
sky tonight. Cause I'm not sure what's going on. I feel the Earth quaking beneath me. It feels like elephants. Trampling my
hollow chest. If I could move just one fingernail. I'd scratch your name on the back of my hand. So I would never forget you
again. Remember when was way back then. And as for now, I'm just
dangling/ Between the moon and melon sunset.
Wednesday The Third
Now as I lay by your side would you tell me why everything has to be lies. Leaving everyone wondering when we'll all wind
up dead to all we are within. Wednesday the 3rd was the night that you rambled alone in the frigid white light. Like a leopard
about to dig in to trembling skin with wind whipping your shins. Oh, haven't you heard the news? Nobody came too soon. Surprise!
Our eyes are opening up to you. Now as I lean to the side I can see all the thoughts that you're trying to hide. I've arranged
for a ferry to France where you should relax. Don't worry about the pets, they'll be safe at our address. You've left everyone
wondering when we'll all wind up dead to all we are within.But now as the daisies die off and the wind scurries scarlet leaves
like they were dust. We can see somewhere off to the east a gaggle of geese are singing your goodbye.Hear their sweetest lullaby.
Listen up to hear the sky will soon clear and you'll be the last one to wish for rain.
Tomorrow Too Late
Light beams through windows. Streams into my eyes, explodes like red balloons.As it reminds me of you so long ago. Wind
blows through a hole in the roof. Brings your perfume like lilies to me. And all I can do is remember you. When was the last
time I held you all through the night? Feels like a zillion years and I don't want to wait more. To find you is to lose you,
what is that for? Tell me. When was the last time I held you all through the night? Never a worry would run through my heart
like a knife. Feels like a zillion years and I don't want to wait more. To find you is to lose you, what is that for? One
more night and I might never know who you are. Tell me. Tomorrow is much too late. I need you now, be my light.
