Big Bitch 02:56
Once you've got a lot to burn, running will seem slow at first Thinking flat, where's your mind at? Gone, gone gone gone. Any new repetitive day You would have easily divided away But you're down, down in the ditch Time to embrace the big bitch Dancing's hard when your partner's so heavy Slow turn, don't drop the marbles baby There ain't no more brownies in the oven And no use saving all your lovin' for a long shot, or the wrong day hey hey. Don't know what to do with you I pretend I know, but it's not true On the wheel but spinning slower, hoping that this project is a grower with you. Flexing hard a little sour on the edge of super power

God bless the new people of our town here today Which is starting with a bang Business will be booming watch life blooming in your eyes No fears will come looming It's all perfume in the skies, trust me It's good to be you We're the golden few Good news for you And me too I know that you've come from such great sorrow but well baby now that's through We've made a big garden which is so big it takes days to walk through Dear people, it's good to be you It'll be the bees knees for you. And me too. There's an underground shelter you can hide in With your babies when hell comes We've got ammunitions and libations just for you So don't you worry Dear people, I see many things for you It's a realizing age for you And me too

MyMyMy 03:18
Mosquitoes will fly in your room Bedsprings leave marks on me Free but I'm not free Heat makes me sick But I know I'll grow out of it No, I just can't handle it You're a man and I can't handle it Why don't you want to be with any of your women Each time you leave we all know that it kills them But not me It only kills me slightly And why don't you want to be with any of your children Take yourself too seriously but beans are for spilling Something new out of the refuse My My My hands are all blue And my lips curl up like curly Qs Don't say what is not while hitting the spot And sometimes it's true you're the only I've got No not me, it only cures me slightly And why would I want to be just one of your women? Each time I leave I just cross the hall kicking And cursing that beautiful person

Maybe some time when you are free to give advice Drive me way way out in the middle of the night I can see you know who I'm trying to be And how I fall short but isn't this a game for good sports? So play it with me Stay up through the next day with me Until our eyes swell shut And we don't know the what from what Maybe some day when you're forty three and I'm thirty five Take me way out to stand in the middle of I-5 I can see your eyes glow blue Silver beard reflecting too And I'm a dark spot next to you Smiling now we'll make a duel And you'll shoot through me Blasting out the misery And fill it with yourself And making love to good health In the middle of the night

Bitten By 02:10
Bitten by snake I was swimming in the lake Alone I thought it was safe And I don't need my clothes Lay them lakeside in a roll You know that I'm awfully shy Is that why you slid so sly? It whips by the water My deceit glides with wide eyes The tips hide deep inside Fueling a cold sigh And cold skin begins to let the water in It slips by the cat cries Clawing the water away Around you profound cool The ground and sky sound

Blanky 04:16
After all the searching found you Only footsteps guide us through You'll become someone worth talking to Skin is black and eyes are blue Blue After all that searching found you Blue is fine but light eyes see through I see fine but what's that with you? 20/20 or is it 22? It's coming through It's coming through It's coming through It coming to you

I've got a room, a room in my heart A room in my house and it's full of art I'm in my room and waiting for you And you can take all the time you need to I've got the moon but you hold it too And you won't give back the things I gave you When we're asleep, that's when things are good Take from each other the things that we should Things that are good Things that could be good Things we started Things that we should I've got a room but you hold it too And you can put in there the things I give you I've got a moon, a moon in my heart And you can take all the time you need to Things that are good Things that could be good Things we started

Want to give up, want to give up. Git it git it Want to get up want to go away hey Want to quit it, just to let it fade Try to keep on but digressions will stay Will to wade through though these thoughts are in my way You and me will keep working away Have to keep on pressing cause there is no other way Watching your life floating out to the bay Music man, I think it's time we hit the hay Our pressure's making diamonds today Want to go out on the street and give them away And when you touch them you will never be the same So many babies that I'm running out of names My blood's getting hotter every day Got to keep on pressing. When you press it's gonna stay Want to give up, want to give up git it git it Use friction 'til the grumpy ones are gay Pitchforks making bales out of the hay Roll the bales on down the hill and crush 'em in our wake Then when we see what we've done We're in a real good state Want to give up, want to give up git it git it Want to give up, Won't to give up git it git it

Monsignor 03:53
Hey monsignor where you taking me this evening? I lost my faith but trust your steady breathing You must know so much more than me I come from a farm my nails are dirty Swallow my hand in your hand You know your wish is my command Please treat me well I follow without even asking to where we'll go I am blind but multi-tasking I can't see a thing but trusting's easy Floating on the clouds of the misty Swallow my eyes in your mouth And with you here I can do without Swallow my hand in your hand You know your wish is my command

Where you going to? There there baby there you go Why you want to know? I say so so so East New York wearing short shorts Or down town where all they wear is black and brown What should we do? Pretend that we have the best men I'll plan your wedding on a boat don't forget the Soft Soap Out in the day where all we do is pass the buck away And "no money"...so so you say Where you going to there there baby there you go Why you want to know? I say so so so

Harpy 02:29
Used to be, when we were down we'd know Blanket me inside the blow by blow And when you go Tell me so I know I have froze All your things each object a little sting It's all yours, and me I'm such a bore I'm so sore It always comes up short I'm so out of sorts, I have changed moved too much and now we are estranged Things they hang And I smell rain
15.
You don't know how much I can love you There's no fire but there's a lot of fuel We sink good but it's your charm that hurts me Everything was fine until we got to this big city Man of land and man of war keep me under pressure All I hope's within this time that it's still a pleasure It's the decades passing over pushes me under water Now to wait beneath the waves until it's softer It's for you to have the strength to be new It don't help to hold your breath 'til you're blue True, I've always loved you But you're running away from good news Don't go out insane tonight, insane tonight, insane tonight Don't go out. Embrace the night, embrace the night, embrace the night Don't get caught in crazy plights, you'll never win...were crazy to begin
