Burn it down and bleed it out
because nobody's listening.
I run away, by myself
waiting for the end.
I've given up and I am numb
looking for somewhere I belong,
a place for my head on roads untraveled
that make me hit the floor.
I'm lost in the echoes within a
castle of glass and shadows of the day
leave me crawling on hands and knees
from skin to bone until I faint
and there's nothing left me ....
Psychosis turned lullaby
It's 1979 sometime around midnight
and the mortician's daughter is
craving coffee and cigarettes
she's looking down at a photograph
finding it hard to concentrate
her mind is somewhere in neverland
missing her guardian angel
Laying face down on the bed
She falls asleep to the cricket
under her bed playing its lullaby
Does Your Mother Know,
In The Attic,
Time Moves Slow.
Hold Your Head Up,
Casper's Coming Home.
In the Titles
A simple kind of man
With broken bones,
but I won't back down,
rape me with poison oak,
two angels and a dream
destroy the dance floor
as I watch the sun
fuck the ocean.
All words are song titles except for italics that I used to string together.
Just stop the voices in my asylum
My perfect insanity is pain redifined
I'm trapped inside the fire with my demons
Caught down with the sickness
I give one last prayer to show me the light
Yet all I hear is the sound of silence
Two minutes to midnight, To here knows when
Dirty deeds done dirt cheap--
Playing for keeps.
American life; Apocalypse please
Our perfect disease.
Tooth and nail & Heart of stone
Clenching fists of dissent;
World peace is none of your business.
The ghost of you,
is My tourniquet.
you Bring me to life.
I will always remember you,
Even in death.
I never told you what I do for a living,
but You know what they do to guys like me in prison.
Do you want to know a secret?
I need you.
I call out your name.
Anytime at all. Eight days a week.
Here, there and everywhere.
All you need is love.
my thanks to The Beatles
I Wish I Were In Dixie
Oh, I'm singing country western
promising to Walk the Line.
I Wish I Were in Dixie Tonight
But She’s Out of Town.
All my friends I telephone
say Here’s a Quarter, Call
Someone Who Cares.
I tried to tell my girlfriend, Dixie,
Get Your Tongue Outa My Mouth
Cause I’m Kissing You Goodbye.
I Fell in a Pile of You
And Got Love All Over Me.
She Made Toothpicks
Out of the Timber of My Heart.
She Had Velcro Arms
And Teflon Heart.
But I Don’t Believe My Heart
Can Stand Another You
Even though I Can’t Stop
I tell my buddies
Thank God and Greyhound
But I’m sitting here alone
My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend
And I Sure Do Miss Him.
So I wish Dixie was still In Town.
