Take these plastic people
Read their lips, now let it linger
Is there anything that makes them sound sincere?
Tightly hold your hand
Take a deep breath, give them the finger
Are you worried
That your thoughts are not quite clear?
(Twitch)
Overlooked, unfit appearance
I remember falling
I remember marching
Like a one man army
Through the blaze
I remember coughing
I believe in something
I don't want to remember falling
For their lies
Unbutton your clothes
Undress your soul, show them your vigor
Are those inhibitions easiest to fear?
Take this gasoline tin
Head up high , walk like a winner

. . .



I confess
Everyone is overweight
And I'm obsessed
Talking is just masturbating
Without the mess
Addiction leaves you sad today
& unimpressed
I can't remember all the names because
Everyone you meet today
Is just so fucking vain
Bored again by happiness
All those friends I've (die) lost in there
I'm upset
Happiness is not a fish
That you can catch
Imagination can't resist
This laziness
That pins you down, get on your knees
Everyone you meet today

. . .



We live, we die
I don't know the reasons we ask why
We hate, we push
Recent tests show we are all misunderstood
Something's seizing
You know you lost your mind
You know we all need saving
She found you late last night
You feel the madness gaining
You know you just can't win
You know this
But I'm just so tired of waking up on the ground
I never knew the girl
And I never knew the world hurt
We beg, we pray
But everything still happens anyway
Something's teasing
Your conscience can't decide
She stopped your will from caving
But left you paranoid
You feel the constant straining
She reappears divine
You noticed

. . .



Lately I can't breathe
Waiting they're chasing me
No one listens but I'm OK with it
Only I wonder why
If only my hands weren't tied
The world's a blister
But I'm OK with it
What if I was there
What if I was scared
I'm waiting for...
They're at my door
But I'll be back again
Lonely, I'm wandering
Patrolling for enemies

. . .



Goodbye, the future's sold out
There's no use screaming
Who thought we'd ever get this far
Tonight, your faith has come down
To money & a TV
Psychics who've never been to mars
And nazis breast feeding
I know you must be upset
I can't find meaning
I'm sorry, we're sorry
We're all scared, all scared
Hey is anybody home
Has anybody wasted tears on the loneliness
That everyone becomes
Goodnight, the truth has come out
Everyone's needy
White teeth, a ticket to meet god
Be all that you envy
The shotgun under your bed has
Started breathing
You shot it, you shot it
I'm bare, I'm bare
Hey, is anybody home
Has anybody painted fear

. . .



Hit the ground
Weighed down again
You walked out
But I'm sure you're my friend
It must have been good
This can't be for good
Everyone's....
Is everyone OK
I waited
But I must be too dumb to be proud
Because I waited, I waited
Woke to sounds
I prayed you were there
I fell back down

. . .



I don't want to understand this horror
There's a weight in your eyes that I can't admit
Everybody ends up here in bottles
But the name tags the last thing that you wanted
As the world explodes we fall out of it
But we can't let go because this
Will not go away
There's a house built out in space...
I can't see that thief that lives inside of your head
But I can be some courage at the side of your bed
I don't know what's happening and I won't pretend
But I can be your....
Someone help us understand who ordered
This disgusting arrangement with time and the end
I don't want to hear who walked on water

. . .



I'm here to wear you out
I'm here to watch you hide
Nothing to figure out
I'm here to watch you die
Running away from the breast of
Your busy giant healing machine
Nobody left in line
No-one to make you shine
Hanging on to the backs of opinions
You've borrowed & betrayed
Lying awake
Don't ask why you should pay for this
A mother
Another
A shameless abusing
But this time we're saving you
I'm here to break you down
I'm here to bury time
Nothing to talk about

. . .



You're a little bit shy
A little too quiet
You're the mixed up girl
That everybody leaves behind
A little bit weird
A little too bright
But you just might be
That little bomb at their side
They'll pull your hair
They'll leave you wide-eyed
But did anybody wonder
What Annie might have in mind
Oh, no
There's something in the way she explains to me
"Please be careful, i exist in someone else's head"
Oh, no
There's something in the way that she makes
believe
Please be careful,
Annie dreams that everyone is dead
You're a little bit dry
A little uptight
You're the messed up girl
That every body tries to hide
You've had enough
They're too unkind
But did anyone consider
What Annie might have in mind

. . .



Take all your pills and divide them
By color & size
Take all your problems and advise them
That everything's fine
Since you ran away you've been beating
Your habits to death
But if you were to stay would you feed them
This white happiness
Nobody wants to harm you
When you're outside
But it's hard to believe
When everyone's killing time
Somebody knows
That you're not laughing
Take all your pills and divide them
By number and might
Take all your problems chastise them
Because everything's fine
Since you've ran away you've been beating
Those ladders instead
But if you were to stay would you feed them

. . .


(featuring Elvin Jones)

I'm teething on the answers you're saving
How are you going to make me understand
I'm dreaming while your stealing babies
How are you going to help me sleep again
How should I say "I'm so sorry"
How should I pray to know that we're alive
Eve stands alone
By the knock on the door
By the thin in her bones
She's courageous & loving
Exhausted & cold
She's not ready to go
But the ghost on the phone
Helps her safely into her dream
You're leaving pieces of family
How are you going to help them understand
I'm screaming while you're stealing babies

. . .



Caught you knocking at my cellar door
Love you baby can I have some more?
oh... the damage done
I hit the city and I lost my band
Watched the needle take another man
Gone gone, the damage done
Ow... oh my my my...
Sing the song because I love the man
Know that some of you don't understand
Milk blood to keep from running out
Ow... oh my my my....
I've seen the needle and the damage done
Oh a little part of us in everyone
I've seen the needle and the damage done
A little part, little part, little part
I've seen the needle
oh I
I've seen the needle
Seen the needle and the damage done
A little part of us in everyone

. . .



Throw away the radio suitcase
That keeps you awake
Hide the telephone in case
You realize that sometimes you're not okay
You level off but it's not all right now
You need to understand
There's nothing strange about this
You need to know your friends
I'll be waving my hand watching you drown
Watching you scream quiet or loud
Maybe you should sleep
Maybe you just need a friend
As clumsy as you've been
There's no one laughing
You will be safe in here
Throw away this very old shoelace
That tripped you again
Try and shrug it off
It's only skin now
You need to understand
There's nothing fake about this
You need to let me in
