1979


shakedown 1979
cool kids never have the time
on a live wire right up off the street
you and i should meet
junebug skipping like a stone
with the headlights pointed at the dawn
we were sure we'd never see an end to it all

and i don't even care to shake these zipper blues
and we don't know
just where our bones will rest
to dust i guess
forgotten and absorbed into the earth below

double cross the vacant and the bored
they're not sure just what we have in the store
morphine city slippin' dues down to see

that we don't even care as restless as we are
we feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
and poured cement, lamented and assured
to the lights and towns below
faster than the speed of sound
faster than we thought we'd go
beneath the sound of hope

justine never knew the rules,
hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
no apologies ever need be made
i know you better than you fake it to see

that we don't even care to shake these zipper blues
and we don't know just where our bones will rest
to dust i guess
forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
the street heats the urgency of now
as you see there's no one around

today

today is the greatest
day i've ever known
can't live for tomorrow,
tomorrow's much too long
i'll burn my eyes out

before i get out
i wanted more
than life could ever grant me
bored by the chore
of saving face

today is the greatest
day i've ever known
can't wait for tomorrow
i might not have that long
i'll tear my heart out
before i get out

pink ribbon scars
that never forget
i tried so hard
to cleanse these regrets
my angel wings
were bruised and restrained
my belly stings

today is
today is
today is
the greatest day

i want to turn you on
i want to turn you on
i want to turn you on
i want to turn you

today is the greatest
today is the greatest day
today is the greatest day
that i have ever really known

tonight, tonight

time is never time at all
you can never ever leave without leaving a piece of you
and our lives are forever changed
we will never be the same
the more you change the less you feel
believe, believe in me, and believe , believe!
that life can change, that you're not stuck in vain
we’re not the same, we're different
tonight, tonight, tonight
so bright
tonight, tonight
and you know you're never sure
but you're sure you could be right
if you held yourself up to the light
and the embers never fade in your city by the lake
the place where you were born
believe, believe in me, and believe, believe
in the resolute urgency of now
and if you believe there's not a chance tonight
tonight, tonight
so bright tonight, tonight
we’ll crucify the insincere tonight (tonight)
we’ll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight (tonight)
we’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight (tonight)
the indescribable moments of your life (tonight)
the impossible is possible tonight (tonight)
believe in me as i believe in you
tonight, tonight, tonight
tonight
tonight…

mayonaise

fool enough to almost be it
cool enough to not quite see it
doomed
pick your pocket full of sorrow
run away with me tomorrow
june

we'll try and ease the pain
somehow we'll feel the same
well, no one knows
where our secrets go

i send a heart to all my dearies
when your life is so, so dreary
dream
i'm rumored to the straight and narrow
while the harlots of my perils
scream

and i fail
but when i can, i will
try to understand
the way i can, i will

mother weep the years i'm missing
all our time can't be given
back
shut my mouth and strike the demons
cursed you and your reasons
out of hand and out of season
out of love and out of feeling
so bad

when i can, i will
words defy the plans
when i can, i will

fool enough to almost be it
cool enough to not quite see it
tall enough to always feel it
always older, i'll always feel this

no more promise no more sorrow
no longer will i follow
can anybody hear me
i just want to be me
when i can, i will
try to understand
the way i can, i will

disarm

disarm you with a smile
and cut you like you want me to
cut that little child
inside of me and such a part of you
ooh, the years burn
ooh, the years burn

i used to be a little boy
so old in my shoes
and what i choose is my choice
what's a boy supposed to do?
a killer in me is a killer in you
my love
i send this smile over to you

disarm you with a smile
and leave you like they left me here
to wither in denial
the bitterness of one who's left alone
ooh, the years burn
ooh, the years burn, burn, burn

i used to be a little boy
so old in my shoes
and what i choose is my voice
what's a boy supposed to do?
a killer in me is a killer in you
my love
i send this smile over to you

a killer in me is a killer in you
send this smile over to you
a killer in me is a killer in you
send this smile over to you
a killer in me is a killer in you
send this smile over to you

cherub rock

freak out
and give in
doesn't matter what you believe in
stay cool
and be somebody's fool this year
'cause they know
who is righteous, what is bold
so i'm told
who wants honey
as long as there's some money
who wants that honey?

hipsters unite
come align for the big fight to rock for you
but beware
all those angels with there wings glued on
'cause deep down
we are frightened and we're scared
if you don't stare

who wants honey
as long as there's some money
who wants that honey?

let me out
let me out
let me out
let me out

tell me all of your secrets
cannot help but believe this is true
tell me all of your secrets
i know, i know, i know,
should have listened when i was told

who wants honey
as long as there is some money
who wants that honey?

let me out
let me out
let me out
let me out

bullet with butterfly wings

the world is a vampire, sent to drain
secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
and what do i get, for my pain
betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
even though i know-i suppose i'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job

despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage

now i'm naked, nothing but an animal
but can you fake it, for just one more show
and what do you want, i want change
and what have you got
when you feel the same
even though i know-i suppose i'll show
all my cool and cold-like old job

despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage

tell me i'm the only one
tell me there's no other one
jesus was an only son yeah
tell me i'm the chosen one
jesus was an only son for you

despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage
someone will say what is lost can never be saved
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage

despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a
despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage

tell me i'm the only one
tell me there's no other one
jesus was an only son for you

and i still believe that i cannot be saved
and i still believe that i cannot be saved
and i still believe that i cannot be saved
and i still believe that i cannot be saved

zero

my reflection, dirty mirror
there's no connection to myself
i'm your lover, i'm your zero
i'm the face in your dreams of glass
so save your prayers
for when you're really gonna need 'em
throw out your cares and fly
wanna go for a ride?

she's the one for me
she's all i really need
cause she's the one for me
emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness
and cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me
intoxicated with the madness, i'm in love with my sadness
bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms
the fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth
i never let on, that i was on a sinking ship
i never let on that i was down
you blame yourself, for what you can't ignore
you blame yourself for wanting more
she's the one for me
she's all i really need
she's the one for me
she's my one and only
