Lyrics

It's like this.
I'll climb into a paper plane,
No seats, no wings, no anything,
But I'm not insane
I'm not insane.
I'll climb into my wooden car,
No brakes, no wheels, no sex appeal,
It's not far now.
It's early noon when I'll arrive
I'll say to you that my time's 5:00
We'll sit right down and have some tea
But I'll stay standing as I speak to thee,
And tell you inappropriately how I feel, now.
I say "I love you now like I loved you then"
And my heart pours out like a barrel of rain.
Reality check,
Your not listening.
Muscle behind me glistening.
Behind my back he's listening.
I, Oh I'm
Never looking back, never coming back, never taking back.
My Friend, My Friend,
My Friend Ship
I, Oh I'm,
Never giving back
Never holding back
Never loving back
My Friend
My Friend
My Friend Ship
I'll climb into my UFO
It's square and stone and flying low
I gotta go
I'll swim down to my submarine
It's made of glass and very clean
I've seen it in a magazine.
The table's set when you stop by,
I'll dish you out some humble pie,
The tears pour from your big blue eyes,
But I stay smiling as I hear your lies
Now please don't try to compromise my new love now.
You say you love me now like you loved me then
But my heart stays strong like a bullet proof man
Reality check,
Your not listening.
Your tear streaked cheeks still glistening.
Behind my back birds whistling.
I, Oh I'm
Never looking back, never coming back, never taking back.
My Friend, My Friend
My Friend Ship
I, Oh I'm,
Never giving back
Never holding back
Never loving back
My Friend
My Friend
My Friend Ship

Lyrics

I am my fathers son.
I am my mothers son.
I don't mind cause I can be anyone.
I hear we're all so different,
But I can see we're all the same.
In the darkness,
I can feel you
I can hear you crying out.
Crying out.
I am
I am
I'm just fine
Cause I can be myself again.
I hear we're complicated,
But I can see we're built the same
In the darkness,
I can feel you
I can hear you crying out.
Crying out.

Lyrics

I'll pretend for minute with a stick and a hat,
I'll wear a fur coat,
I'm a pimp on a yacht.
I got many friends all having big names,
Share a little toke and a little cocaine.
Sitting in a hot tub sipping champagne,
Wake up with a headache but I can't complain.
Gotta match the bling to my teeth and gold chain,
Re-invent myself to maintain my fame.
My mother wouldn't agree with that,
I'm fine exactly were I'm at.
I got friends I trust and I know myself,
I can always dream about being someone else.
Now I'm sitting on a ledge while they're lighting my head,
Or chilling in my trailer, I'm an actor on a set.
Sign a couple autographs for my fans,
I bathe in bottled water just because I can.
Anytime of year you'll be jealous of my tan.
I'd slap the paparazzi with the back of my hand.
I get paid millions just to say a few lines,
I pay a plastic surgeon to remove my lines,
I just rhymed lines with lines two times.
Open up a magazine
What celebrity's been seen eating where and wearing what.
What young star's become a slut?
Who said what to who and why?
Things I've learned in the grocery line.
My mother wouldn't agree with that,
I'm fine exactly were I'm at.
I got friends I trust and I know myself,
I can always dream about being someone else.
Oh, driving to the office in my Subaru blue,
I got to work hard cause the rent is due.
I don't have a stylist so I do what I can,
I pick my own clothing with my own bare hands.
No entourage, just a couple of friends,
Hanging at the beach or the cabin this weekend.
No assistant at my side for whatever I need,
Album sales through the roof?
Well not if you're me.
Would I turn down fame and fortune well I guess we'll see.
My mother wouldn't agree with that,
I'm fine exactly were I'm at.
I got friends I trust and I know myself,
I can always dream about being someone else.

Lyrics

It's been so long since I left your side,
Since I felt your touch,
Since I kissed your lips
Since I held you tight
Since I felt so right (Felt so right)
And I've been wrong once or twice
And you've heard me apologize,
Now tell me what I need to hear.
Am I wasting my time hanging around your front door?
With your lights out baby you don't need me no more,
So pull your socks way up, and tell it to my face,
You'd never loved me long time,
And hated my taste.
Now I'm driving my car in the pouring rain,
I've got you under my skin but I feel no pain,
I haven't thought your though since I don't know when...
I don't miss you anymore,
I miss who I thought you were.
I don't remember anymore,
Remember who you really were
Remember who you really were.
I've been just fine since I wrote this down
Since I cleared my mind
Since I made a fist
Since I shed my fear
Since I took some time (Took some time)
Now I'm driving my car in the pouring rain,
I've got you under my skin but I feel no pain,
I haven't thought your though since I don't know when...
I don't miss you anymore,
I miss who I thought you were.
I don't remember anymore,
Remember who you really were
Remember who you really were.

Lyrics

Frail bones touch me
Softly before you break
Bruised skin
Sense fear,
Dripping before I shake.
Moist hands push me,
I fall then I'm awake.
Had you left me alone I would have got through it
Was I tossing and turning?
Why did you do it?
Things are not as they seem
(Lucid) Dream
New eyes watch me,
From where I cannot tell.
Long nails,
Scratched back,
No pain, I cannot yell.
Hairs wet with sweat,
Fake lust and then I fell
Had you left me alone I would have slept through it
Was I tossing and turning?
I knew you'd do it?
Things are not as they seem
(Lucid) Dream
Strange room,
Red book,
Photograph a blinking eye.
Lie down feet first,
Rise up, I start to fly.
Feel free
Over trees
Reality begins to die.
Had you left me alone I would have got through it
I was tossing and turning,
Why did you do it?
Things are not as they seem
(Lucid) Dream

Lyrics

Monkey music
Monkey music
Monkey music
Goes on and on and on and on
Monkey music
I'm not calling you a monkey son
You have opposable thumbs like one
I'm not calling you a monkey son
You have opposable thumbs like one and one and one
Monkey music
Goes on and on and on and on
Monkey music
Goes on and on and on and on
Monkey music
Goes on and on and on and on and on and on ....
I'm not calling you a monkey son
But you sure as hell act like one
I'm not calling you a monkey son
Sharpen tools enough you'll hurt someone.
Monkey music
Goes on and on and on and on and on and on ....
Monkey Music

Lyrics

I'm not sure how to say this,
But I don't know where I've been.
I woke up in the backseat naked...
An empty bottle of gin...
This situation is bullshit,
Of all the things that I've done...
What kind of people take my clothes?
Fucker!
And who drank my shit now?
Come on now.
I'd call one of my loved ones if I could find my phone.
I'm pulling off a busted hubcap just to cover the bone...
What's up girl?
What can I say?
What can I do?
You can take the party from my body,
But I can't take the party from you.
What can I do?
What can I say?
You can take the party from my body
But you ain't going to take it today,
No way ya.
You ain't going to take it today.
I'm not sure how to say this,
But I don't know what you've done,
Face down on the sidewalk bleeding,
In the morning sun.
I don't think you'll move yet,
I guess you'll work on your tan.
Scraped and bruised and a bit hung over buddy,
But you can do it again
Come on now.
I found one of your flip-flops,
I didn't think you'd care,
I left it on the path to the beach now,
A memory of Jer in Koh Toa yah.
What can I say?
What can I do?
You can take the party from my body,
But I can't take the party from you.
What can I do?
What can I say?
You can take the party from my body
But you ain't going to take it today,
No way ya.
You ain't going to take it today.

Lyrics

You never take me serious,
When I'm eating cereal,
When I say good morning to you.
You cut up your oranges,
And I wait for you,
And my cereal is getting soggy.
What's a man supposed to do?

Lyrics

Newspaper trees growing Coke bottle leaves,
Pick me down a bottle cause I'm feeling kind of thirsty.
Climb to the top so that I can reach the sun...
I'm done.
Let me down easy so that I can run and hide,
Everybody's buying it, soon it will be time again.
Conflicting addictions running through my veins,
Then you buy a little
Then you buy a little bit more
Then you cry a little
Then you cry a little bit more.
A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet as you...
Greed. Greed.
Tattered squeegee corners clean windows for a dime.
Save a bit of money, think you're helping out the other side,
Drive through the light when the light turns green.
Unseen,
Flower bed exhaust pipe sleeping in the ditch,
Televisions on, something here to make me laugh again,
Conflicting addictions running through my veins,
Then you buy a little
Then you buy a little bit more
Then you cry a little
Then you cry a little bit more.
A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet as you...
Greed. Greed.

Lyrics

I can't live my life like this.
My love for you has faded in the mist,
But I still remember you kiss.
And I'm so sorry,
I never meant to make you cry.
Please forgive me,
I never meant to make you hurt.
I never meant to make you hurt.
You need to know that I never lied,
And half the tears shed, were mine.
When I'm driving alone,
I wonder what your doing now.
As I write these words down,
I wonder if you're listening.
Cause I'm so sorry
I never meant to make you cry.
Please forgive me,
I never meant to make you hurt, no,
I never meant to make you hurt.
So I'm not the one,
We still had lots of fun,
I guess it's time to move on,
Cause it's over, and done.
It's over and done.
Over and done.

Story

A man was shot to death in his van outside my apartment which got me thinking.

Lyrics

I'm not worried.
What will it take for me to care?
Sitting watching TV,
Six gunshots break the night.
What does it take to kill a man?
An ego wants him dead.
Hey man put your gun down.
Bullets don't belong in this town.
I said,
Hey man put your gun down.
Bullets don't belong in this town.
Watching from my window,
Pull a body from a van.
A girl screams "This can't be happening!"
A Policeman takes her hand.
Hey man put your gun down.
Bullets don't belong in this town.
Hey man put your gun down.
Bullets don't belong in this town.

Soundtrack to one of my recurring dreams.
Walking through a dark field being watched by unseen creatures in the surrounding cardboard woodlands.

Lyrics

I've been down.
This path is mine now.
But I've felt worse though, so I know I'm in control.
Poison fairies bribing me with little pieces of myself.
I scrape my plate clean, hope the water's warm.
Lying low now,
Eye level with some self esteem.
Constricting constructions are contradicting what I know to be right,
And I feel fine.
The rooster sings a song, and I'm awake now,
But I know I won't forget.
Grasping fast.
Holding tight.
One more thought to think tonight.
Memory racing, before I fall asleep.
I needed this more than you'll know
I needed this more than I'd say
I needed this more than you'll know
I needed this more than I'd say.
I needed this (It's over)
Let me tell you...
You'll never bury me.
Some say time heals all pain.
I disagree.
Cause what a pain if you have no time to kill the hurt
It goes away,
Then back again.
Just let me deal.
It's easier if I can't feel,
It's all a mess inside my head.
Grasping fast.
Holding tight.
One more thought to think tonight.
Memory racing, before I fall asleep.
I needed this more than you'll know
I needed this more than I'd say
I needed this more than you'll know
I needed this more than I'd say.
I needed this.
