LYRICS

Headcase

i’m not so sentimental
some say i don’t remember shit
my banged-up brain shows up to quit
so don’t give me your number
that’s just more math i might forget
i don’t feel bad–i just feel sick

my soul regret
i never found a helmet

i get banged and beat up
true love drop dead deluxe
i’m a headcase
gotta blow me away
i get fazed
it’s too much
true love give me double or nothing
i’m a headcase
gotta blow me away

cuts scratches scrapes and bruises
sweet kisses skull contusions
each hiccup hurts about the same
head down and swallow harder
will my migraines make me smarter
cuz i try but i don’t remember why i came

my soul regret
i never found a helmet

Blackout

i took it way
i took it way too far
i wanna know
am i a falling star?

blackout! blackout!
woke-up choked-up and down
blackout! blackout!
i’m faded–leave me hated

another day
i rip the paper heart
just look away
this is the ugly part

blackout! blackout!
woke-up choked-up and down
blackout! blackout!
i’m faded–leave me waiting

tryin’ to find a kind of feeling
tryin’ to find a kind of feeling

Murder Ballad

strangled whisper on the wind
i hear his voice again
and though i’ve never touched his face
i can feel him on my skin
the blood is on his hands
newspapers on the stands
everybody knows my baby
he’s a legendary man

i’m writing letters to my lover
pasting pictures everywhere
there will never be another
25 to life i’ll be there
serving my love
my love
my love

and so the story goes
it was 21 or so
ripped to pieces after being choked
on each one pinned a little note

i’m writing letters to my lover
send me pictures of your neck
there will never be another
25 to life i spend
serving my love
my love
my love

on the day that he escaped
the day he faced his fate
his letters said that he’d come straight to me
i waited in the willow trees
now my hands around his throat
its just exactly as we’d hoped
goodnight world i’m with my baby
his fingers feel just like a rope

no more letters to my lover
no more clippings from the news
no there will never be another
to ever give my man more than i do
serving my love
my love
my love
my love
i’m serving my love

We Are Kings

i see it now
my future told
one path decays
one explodes
erode or evolve
grasp at vines or climb
metallic structures
crystallize

crawled from the ooze we are kings
(death sings we are kings)
kill all that moves we are kings
abandon the fools we are kings
(death sings we are kings)
sealed in our tombs we are kings

unshackle the mind
from flesh and bone
far below failure
oceans cover the growth
our royal tomb
tears in the eyes
green and blue
vaporize

crawled from the ooze we are kings
(death sings we are kings)
kill all that moves we are kings
abandon the fools we are kings
(death sings we are kings)
sealed in our tombs we are kings

we are kings
we are kings
we are kings

Acid Rain

i got a lot of judgey people driving me
acid rain on my brain–that’s a remedy
they don’t know what i know
get wet and watch the show

the dumb goes in the dumb goes out
what’s dumb is dumb
we’re onto something now

hey–i think we found the cure for pain
hey–laughing in the acid rain

i got a lot of pressure from society
people telling me i should play quietly
when the sky opens up
we’ll all get soaked its a joke i don’t give a fuck

hey i think we found the cure for pain
hey laughing in the acid rain

the fun goes in the fun goes out
fun! fun! fun!
that’s what it’s all about

the love goes in the love goes out
the love goes in the love goes out

Sympathy Sex

so fam what’s the plan? what’s the deal?
look around you–there’s no need to steal
you’re a wish but you will not come true
you’re my occulter my filter my moon
looking down–keeping everything dark
you’re watching the scene–the plastic is green
you don’t have to scream to be really mean
you don’t have to scream

tell me again how you wish you were dead
you know that’s my favorite right before bed
tell me again how you wish you were dead
you know that’s my favorite–sympathy sex

i guess it makes so much sense
but don’t lift a finger–don’t dirty your hands
to me it would seem pretty obvious
but i guess you just came to make fake plans
you’ll never just dirty your hands

sympathy sex
sympathy! sympathy!

it’s so hard to be you
i know its so hard to be you

every day is crazy
i wake amazed
how’d you get so lazy?
you’re just so unfazed
think i finally get it
i get why they say
“kids these days”

tell me again how you wish you were dead
you don’t have to scream to be really mean
you don’t have to scream
i stopped listening

Space

in the science of space its a common mistake
to cling to what’s clever, my dear
claws in the dirt doing gravity’s work
turning your love into fear

counting the cracks–finding faults in my mind
watching you unmake the bed
all of these questions suggestions impressions
i know you heard what i said

how many times can i tell you i’m fine?
how many stars in the sky and when will you die?
let’s talk about this all night

i’d rather waste my time
i’d rather pray
i want some peace of mind
science and space
you’re so wrong
why would you stay so long?
so long

in the science of space its a common mistake
darling, you’re waking the dead
hush now
i know you heard what i said

leave some space
need some space
my god, is that all it takes?

i’d rather waste my time
i’d rather pray
i want some peace of mind
science and space
you’re so wrong
why would you stay so long?
so long

Honeysuckle Sam

i see them boys out in their short short shorts
they got their toys out–hot rods and surf boards
i dream of catching that wave
but i’m just too shy to say
i want you for my very own

then i see her in the mirror
hot damn! honeysuckle sam!
she’s here–no fear
sam sam! always got a plan
she should be…um…in a museum
she’s art! she’s smart! she’s me! i am…
honeysuckle sam

sometimes i hate myself
i wish i was somewhere someone somebody else
that’s when i need a little help
from someone cool and smart and brave
someone who knows just what to say…

then i see her in the mirror
hot damn! honeysuckle sam!
she’s here–no fear
sam sam! always got a plan
she should be…um…in a museum
she’s art! she’s smart! she’s me! i am…
honeysuckle sam

i’m honeysuckle sam
right now that’s who i am
and i just came to make some new friends
i came to reign and i just might
i came to rip some shit tonight
GO!

Vending Machine Gun

born a witness to weakness
the endless blood and tetanus
the sickness the violent toxic bullets

damned but not alone
hold your steel to keep your soul
buried with your foes
the lights are on but no one’s home

cold and callous with malice
the phallus
cocked and careless
to scare kids you spare this
limp dick bullshit

damned but not alone
hold your steel to keep your soul
buried with your foes
the lights are on but no one’s home

when is the end
cold men hold hands
when is it ending
guns in the vending

Animals

once was a little white dove
perched on the edge of love
quietly cooing
so nothing would ruin
and no one would ever wake up

once was a snake on the trail
devouring itself by the tail
i stopped to be kind
tried to help him unwind
but the venom prevailed
heads or tails

even you should get it
even you should get it
if it had been you that had said it
i know that you’d get it
you said we’re animals
animals

once was a fish in the sea
colorful scales fast as could be
i caught it
then thought it
wasn’t nice of me so i set it free
sparkling

True Love

its coming up its coming up its coming around again
you screw it up you screw it up you get to start again
its true love its true love it never has to end

darkness falls
darkness falls on a tiny spark
in a lonely heart
you’re a gentle wind
i’m the leaves that spin
i’m the embers on the forest floor
you blow by
i start to count the ways i loved you before
one two three four

its coming up its coming up its coming around again
you screw it up you screw it up you get to start again
its true love its true love it never has to end

years away
years away and still i hear your song
i always sing along
melodies
melodies–they carry on an ocean breeze
oh how they fill your sails
return you to me

seconds hours minutes days
oh my god i’m lost in outer space
seconds hour minutes days
oh my god i’m lost in outer space
OH MY GOD!

oh my god
oh my god please be my little baby doll
once and for all
make believe
make believe–captain my time machine
and we can set a course
we can set a course for all of our dreams

love
true love

 

Nope

boring into the open wound
born in ignorance born too soon
shallow breath of the ancient moon
the tide is pulling you

90 days and he cannot die
is there a god or a reason why
heed instructions to sanctify
in your head you hear the lie

god is under
god is over
god is under
god is over you

Your God is over you.

childish fingers that grasp for fate
who decides if she’s three weeks late
is there a god that would make her pay
it’s the darkening of an age

spoke the model and votes ensued
cannibals to the bone of truth
our salvation is on your noose
and your god is on the news

god is under
god is over
god is under
god is over you
Your god is over you!

No. On. One.
No. On. One.

god is under
god is over
god is the firmament
god is you.
the deity.
the truth.
the dignity.

Rainbeau

Like a whisper of dophins
In a crystalline ocean
Dancing deep in a dollhead
That’s how it feels in your bed

Like a wand to a wizard
Like two swans in a blizzard
Like the wings of an eagle
You are the Charles to my beagle.

You’re my rainbeau, You’re my rose.
I love you.
I love you.
Love you.

Organ P

It’s not a vision, its a mediocre thought.
It’s not a collision, its just headlights in the fog.
Put put put your faith…put your faith in the fleas.
Blood blood…suck my blood…let it run down your cheeks
and give me that…
Organ P (all I need today)
Organ P (all I need today)
Can’t get a reaction so I’m throwing hand grenades.
This isn’t attraction. Let me show you to your grave.
Put put put your faith…put your faith in machines.
Blood blood…suck my blood…wipe it off on the sheets
and give me that…
Organ P (all I need today)
Organ P (all I need today)

The Glow

Methodically
They came to me
The kind that like to jump ahead
To go beyond
What’s come and gone
Find what’s at the rainbow’s end

Pot of gold…Full of souls…and it begins to glow
You should know…that the glow…takes control…
and its beyond the world you know.

I couldn’t breathe
I couldn’t leave
So I jumped inside of them
A little frail
I hopped the rail
In two dimensions I began
To unfold, to take control
Or submit to everything
Faithfully, I wait and see
If I am becoming dreams

[weird journey of dimensional sounds][seahorse]

You’re gonna have to leave me alone right now!

Lemonade

I’ve got a broken heart
I don’t know where to start
It all keeps crumbling down
You gave me a lemon tree
Now I’m swinging in the breeze
Hanging from your bough

Lemonade…Lemonade…Gotta do something with this pain.

I’m not pissing in the wind
If I kiss that face again
May lightning strike me dead
But I’d just come back to life
End up your zombie wife
Drinking that sweet and sour spit
It goes on and on…it NEVER ENDS!

Lemonade…Lemonade…Gotta do something with this pain.

It’s just so awful sweet
I take it to the teeth
and let it rot my brain
And every time we meet
you sing that melody
I hear that sweet sad sick refrain
and I’m climbing up your tree again

Lemonade…Lemonade…Gotta do something with this pain.

Sour Blooms

Voices from the memories call to you
My friends inside my closet tell the truth

The avenue…the avenue close behind
They follow you…they follow you.
Not your kind
Its coming true…its coming true
The dream that I had last night
Inside of you, they rendezvous
Out of my mind

Storm of mud
From the sky into the seas
Born of blood
What to make of all these things?
When the mountains overturn
Clinging to the trees in flight
When you see the forest burn
Sour blooms the night.

The disarray…the disarray clean and bright
It swallows you…it swallows you in pure white
Its coming true…its coming true
The dream that I had last night
The fallen lands…the idle hands
The end in sight
Storm of mud
From the sky into the seas
Born of blood
What to make of all these things?
When the mountains overturn
Clinging to the trees in flight
When you see the forest burn
Sour blooms the night.

All of you…I want not some, not part, but all of you
To hear the message that is bleeding through
The static version of your life. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!

The avenue…the avenue close behind
They follow you…they follow you
Not your kind
Its coming true…its coming true
The dream that I had last night
I thought of you…I thought of you
Our last goodnight

Pyre Rats

Am I floating in the Indian Ocean with you or are we diving in the Artic, C’MON!!

Cast off…sail away!
Taking my treasures to a distant bay.
I got your money money right here…MONEY!
Pirates at my rear
Skies are clear

I gotta hundred ways to set you free
I gotta hundred ways of stackin’ g’s
You gotta hundred things to say to me
Save it please I’m sailin’ seas
Cast off with my girls as I flex
Meta Dead Rainbeau manifest
Good sex, what’s next? Assets lookin’ sunny…
Just gimme that MONEY!

Astronaut

All the stars I love are dead
I like that. It doesn’t really mess with my head
But in a dream you came to me
You were riding on the light years
In death you claim an enemy
The twisted, blistered world

How can I fault
A pale blue dot?
I’m just my thoughts
And you’re no astronaut

Gravity’s a kiss in shock
I like that, but it can pin you to a faulty rock
Somewhere beyond the perfect sky
I was riding on the lightyears
Searching for a star that died
It’s you…it’s you…IT’S YOU!!!

How can I fault
A pale blue dot?
I’m just my thoughts
And you’re no astronaut

I can see you fall
I can see you riding on the light years

How can I fault
A pale blue dot?
I’m just my thoughts
And you’re no astronaut

Weedo

Sometimes survey the southern soil and all I see are some stupid people that should cease to be
Cant let that get to me…I smile through my disdain and I dream of a place where there is no pain
Where we have all the weed that we need and no one’s ever crying
We have all the weed that we need and the sun is always shining

California…I wanna go
California…Ohhhhh
Colorado…way to go!
Colorado…Ohhhhh
In the sun and snow
Where they toke and toke
Let’s go! Let’s go!

We’ve got our guns, our racist meth-addicted kids, one big reality show of southern christians
This cure for boredom, cure for poverty, cure for pain…I just can’t see any reason to refrain

If we had all the weed that we need there would be no more crying
We had all the weed that we need…the sun is always shining.

Go!

We got the weedo that we needo…we got the weedo weedo weedo!

Radio

Hey when you go away, go away son
It makes me so sad…so fucking sad
I turn off all the lights in the day, son
And cry ’til you come back.

The radio–it tells me so.
It makes me spin around a round sun.
The radio–it lets me know
You’ll always be around cuz you’re so loud.

Hey when you’re getting grass on the hems, son
I think about the girls…those fucking girls
Tune into your FM, spread the maps some
and make love to the world.

ooh la la…my rotation
ooh la la…tune into your station

The radio–it tells me so.
It makes me spin around a round sun.
The radio–it lets me know
You’ll always be around cuz you’re so loud.

The Lonely Sound

I’m alone now
And I’m just hiding out
From the freaks around town
Maybe I should go out
Get a drink and dance
Maybe I’ll make a new friend
I hate it either way
The nightmare never ends

I feel safe right now…
from the lonely sound

I’m in hell now
Where no on drinks alone
I’m doing well now
I think this could be home.
I’ll hang with Lucifer
He’s my new best friend
Please give the news to her.
I found my happy end.

I feel safe right now…
From the lonely sound.

dance Dance DANCE!!

 

Goldilocks

This one’s too close
That one’s too far
But when it’s just right
I can be their star
And so it goes
With these so and so’s
They sputter and spin
To stay in
My goldilocks zone

How can it be
These stones I keep
Fell in so perfectly
To watch me sleep?
And when I wake
These stones I’ll shake
Their trembling empires
Crumble beneath my gaze

I am the sun
My reign is done
Dissolve and let go let go let go
I am the….ONE

This one’s too close
That one’s too far
Dissolve and let go
