cupid's nightmares
 
beautiful dreams
thin and fair
 
cupid's nightmares cry flowers
where i drown in days
in your ocean air
 
carnival chains
in your lurid lair
 
so i light my candle
let the ceiling fly
the floorboards swing
and the blackbirds dive
 
in days in your ocean sky
torn by reigns
but the land is dry
 
marvel in flowers
ivory showers
fallen again
fall until when?
 
beautiful jewel
crown of desire
 
cupid's nightmares bleed
thorns and fire
 
price of a word
is the life of a liar
 
a to b
depends on the wire
 
drowning in love
is a mortal sin
i'm in the dark pool
never to swim
 
tide of the hour
up to my chin
sweet is the sour
i've fallen in
 
love ya 'til i'm dead
 
i used to me an enemy to me
whenever i would play pretend
i'd never try to fall or fly
no, i just got comfortable instead
 
i wanna see just where i used to be
whatever happened to my head
 
so i'm gonna take you
all over god's green earth
just to try out every bed
 
i've got a rhyme
for every kind of tear you shed
when the sunset is red
 
love ya 'til i'm dead
gonna love ya 'til i'm dead
 
remember when
we talked about where we'd been
and you said something about sin?
 
and then we laughed
and tossed away the diamond staff
and started all over again
 
and then you walked up to me
all glorious and free
the danger that i've seen you in!
 
my clean white shirt
was gleaming in the sun
you took it of me with your chin!
 
i'm crawling with my hand up
to the hot blue sky
ain't gonna tell another lie
 
love ya 'til i die
yeah, i'll love ya 'til i die
 
i'm like a shirt in the evening wind
blowing with the coats again
up on a high shiny wire
no more living without skin
 
you shot a flaming arrow
straight through my head
and my passion lirt up red
 
gonna love ya 'til i'm dead
d-d-d-d-d-d-dead
dead and gone, baby!
 
evening rain (deliverance)
 
gonna run you down to the evening rain
gonna watch the clouds break free again
gonna crack the shroud where the fields are gray
butterflies are down where the breeze will stay
 
gonna run you down to the evening rain
gotta be the place we can breathe and pray
if i'm a moth, you can be my flame
butterflies go down to the sea again
 
and a river ain't no place to try to breathe
you can walk on water, baby
but not in front of me
 
'cause we ain't buried
and we're crossing for deliverance
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
deliverance
 
gonna run you down to the evening rain
gonna feel the ground form the trees again
gonna see the towers of freedom rain
butterflies are down where the breeze will stay
 
gonna throw my coat to the sea of gray
gonna cut the flowers with my blade
if i'm a moth, you can be my flame
butterflies go down to the sea again
 
and a river ain't no place to try to breathe
mix the rain with ashes, baby
pour 'em over me
 
let it all crash down
'cause we're crossing for deliverance
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
deliverance
 
yeah, a river ain't no place to try to breathe
you can walk on water, baby
but not in front of me
 
'cause we ain't buried
and we're crossing for deliverance
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
deliverance
 
blue blood
 
the boy fall over
yeah, she care at all
 
across the far places
all to lay where she lay
 
love new shiny love
got to belong
where we lay
 
hot scene in a dirty movie
and i'm bound to let it play
i'm a player for the end of blue blood
and a player to give it law
 
and she bleeds her little white train
jackboot electro-cute
 
rip into me
rip into me
rip in
rip into me
rip in
rip into me
rip into me, yeah
 
second line got to the wound
afraid to sacrifice
too late
got you alone
 
honey
raw bone
concrete vase
empty shining
stunning lace
 
hot scene in a dirty movie
cut the ribbon and let it play
crowd around
the end of blue blood
all the world's gonna hate me, yeah
 
and the boy ain't even lame
pick out a cloud
just to leave me a lane
because love is quicker than flames
because blood is thicker than brains
 
you're still
you're still
 
you're still that little blue blood
            the exquisite corpse smiles
you're still that little blue blood
            the exquisite corpse smiles
you're still that little do-gooder
            the exquisite corpse smiles
you're still that little do-gooder
you're still that little thing
 
yo, damn fool
make your follow-through
 
you lucky bitch
shhhhhhhhhhhh....
 
battleship
 
i shake my sucker at the back room
i drop my ribs into the breeze
my paper thoughts about to explode
into the trees
 
i am a battleship
i know it
 
a tiny ribbon in a stream
and every animal inside me
sharp and clean
 
we walk in circles in the morning
the sand is white, and white is gray
within this silent strip of warning
where we play
 
i am a battleship
i know it
 
a tiny phantom on a sea
a small green bottle
with a note inside of me
 
i am a battleship
i know it
 
a little popsicle of peace
a little dot of eyes and skin and dreams
 
this thing is short and full of treason
there ain't much else that's very true
 
i am a battleship
i know
 
and so are you
so are you
 
mexico (halfway down to china)
 
i feel like doin a little jig
i feel like doin a little dance
i feel like pickin up a plumb
and layin a little love in your hands
 
ain't gonna do it cuz we want
we're gonna do it cuz we can
comes from something under love
go out and find it in an old black sedan
 
i wanna feel forever love
we're gonna breathe in mexico
they got the high, we got the low
we're runnin halfway down to china
 
so we do our little dance
and start makin up our plans
if we do it all be chance
we'll be puttin it all back in their hands
back in their hands!
 
but we don't do it cuz we want
naw, we do it cuz we can
got a soul in your hand
just to burn across this fantasy land
 
ain't nothin sure, ain't nothin sane
ain't love gonna turn our blood to rain
they got the high, we got the low
we got the road to mexico
 
clear road begun
take up the run
follow the sun to mexico
 
ain't nothin sure, ain't nothin sane
ain't love gonna turn our blood to rain
they got the high, we got the low
we got the road to mexico
 
clear road begun
take up the run
follow the sun to mexico
 
cool air above
hotter below
see you, my love
in mexico
 
we'll ride the sky down low
we're runnin halfway down to china
aimin to die in mexico
 
my flower
 
i knew a girl with flames in her pocket
she got hot and danced like a rocket
so didn't want her lover to be true
she didn't have lakes on her ceiling like you
 
i loaded up and ran to a tower
she never heard my purity ring
we did a red-hot scene in a shower
and everything
 
my flower
my little pink flower
my flower
 
i think i see tea leaves in lament
but ain't nothing there but oranges
ain't nothing there
but dirt, wood and ceiling under a roof
 
so i said, i said to my blossom
come on and show me something
real big staring
 
i never dreamed that every theme
is so clean and so dirty
 
my flower
my little pink flower
yeah, my flower
my little pink flower
 
now we're never low for leather
in a netherworld-win fling
can't ya give up willingly?
 
sentimental, mental
go and poison everything
can't concede that dance in the ground
 
yeah, it blows me down
down, down, down, down, down, down, down
yeah, down, down, down, down, down, down, down
down, down, down, down, down, down, down
waaaaaay down
 
lovers march
 
lovers march from a fallen land
under a torch like a body slam
 
between the end thing and the bliss
all i need is all of this
and a lonely, silent kiss
 
lovers march in a broken chain
behind a cart full of frozen rain
 
between the end thing and the bliss
all i need is all of this
and a lonely, silent kiss
 
i held you down in spectacular wind
we breathed it down
again and again and again
we saw love shine on new bold skin
 
rain becomes you again
again, yeah
rain becomes you again
again, again
 
lovers march like they've got a plan
they live for touch like an alley slam
 
between the end thing and the bliss
all i need is every bit of this
all i want is a lonely, silent kiss
 
i held you down in spectacular wind
we breathed it down
again and again and again
we saw love shine on new bold skin
 
rain becomes you again
again, yeah
rain becomes you again
again, again
 
like song to the kill (ode to the cadillac ranch)
 
one lonely dog in a garden of trash
barking a vivid ghost
 
nosedive mecca
monument alive
half here and half gone
 
steel boneyard
monument alive
red rifles at dawn
 
but love we got to lay us down
who would want to?
got to do it
got to do it
 
weed art
road soldiers
like song to the kill
who'd want to do it?
 
failed safety
sugar in the rain
half here and half gone
 
forlorn objects
sundials in flight
no dawn or midnight
 
before we throw our last flames down
forget that feeling
got to love it
got to lose it
 
weed art
road soldiers
like song to the kill
weed art, road soldiers
 
before we throw our last flames down
forget that feeling
got to love it
got to lose it
 
weed art
road soldiers
like song to the kill
weed art, road soldiers
 
giving up the ghost
like song to the kill
giving up the ghost
like song to the kill
 
giving up the ghost
giving up the ghost
giving up the ghost like ....
giving it up like ....
