The Nameless

In the day I count the hours
And in the night I count days
And when I wake I count the flowers
That grow wild around your grave

And so we'd walk this town forever
And then we'd run toward the bay
And would I were a braver woman
I'd gladly sink beneath your wave

My heart denied what he would call me
The reason why I cannot tell
But you would call me nameless
For this I know, I know full well

My heart denied what he would call me
The reason why I cannot tell
But you would call me nameless
For this I know, I know full well

And in the day we'd count the hours
And in the night we'd count the ghosts
And you would call me nameless
You'd call me nameless
Left the most ____

 

Army Of Tears

I've had enough, these salty drops
I've caught a thousand of them, filled a hundred cups
And bit by bit, they grew and grew
So I begin to turn them into something new

Every hour of every night
My little soldiers drew a breath and came to life
And one by one they formed a line
And pledged allegiance to this salty heart of mine

And what do you suppose they will do
What do you suppose they will say
The world will have its day
With my army of tears

Filled the house in shallow waves
I've fed them only on revenge and bitter rage
And they grew up angry and tall
Lo and behold I have a coldest sea of all

I build a boat made out of ice
To sail the frozen ocean of my own device
And there I'll float and there I'll freeze
Commander of a fleet, queen of the sea

And what do you suppose they will do
What do you suppose they will do
The whole world will bow down to
My army of tears

Darken the day, black out the sun
The water's flowing over everything and everyone
The sirens yell that it's begun
My army

The whole world will live in fear
Of my army of tears

And what do you suppose they will do
What do you suppose they will do
The whole world will live in fear
Of my army of tears

 

In He Comes

In he comes separate and cool
And like a child I go running to
Heart of old but heart of a fool
No gravity I've no home to go to

Why would you be so cruel to me
I gave you all a body could receive
I won't tell if you kiss me true and gentle
Be a man and I'll be a woman too

Love long and intimate off with sorrows
In open rooms throw it to hear it hit the wall ____
Without accomplice each thing is free ____
But which do you like is there the very one for me ____

Why would you be so cruel to me
I gave you all a body could receive
I won't tell if you kiss me true and gentle
Be a man and I'll be a woman too

In he comes well oiled and turning
And like a girl I keep running
Where do they spend part of the fuel ____
Without head I've no sense too you
No sense too you
No sense too you

Why would you be so cruel to me
I gave you all a body could receive
I won't tell if you kiss me true and gentle
Be a man and I'll be a woman too

 

Habit

I have no joy without the boy
Oh but I found me another way to make it through the day
Twist your mind and soon you'll find
Someone to peel away the layers of those broken hearted cares

Leave your keys out in the door as you leave
So next in line can breathe a sigh easily
I know, I know, I know, I shouldn't want
I know I shouldn't need you to become
A habit

I have no joy no flint to flick
Oh but I found a flame to borrow when all my joy is licked
Now what of the sorrow, the looms, the rooms
Well he's just another friend they all get used to in the end

Leave your keys out in the door as you leave
So next in line can breathe a sigh easily
I know, I know, I know, I shouldn't want
I know, I shouldn't need you to become
A bad habit

Leave your keys out in the door as you leave
So next in line can breathe a sigh easily
Well I'm not one to kiss and wait
So if you're here make no mistake you'll become
A habit

A habit
Bad habit

 

Little Red

Hey I, I Wouldn't Let Him In,
No I I, I Wouldn't, I Wouldn't Let Him In,
His Eyes Are Close Together,
And He Wears A Toothy Grin,
Don't Let Him In,
No I Wouldn't If I Were You Let Him In

x2 Ooooh Ooooh,
Oooooooo, Oooooooh
Oh Oh Oh Oh

Don't you, Don't let him walk you home.
No, No, Don't, Don't let him walk you home
Hes Mischief In His Make Up,
Your Better Off To Do Than Walk Alone,
No I Wouldn't If I Were You let him walk you home

x2 Ooooh Ooooh,
Oooooooo, Oooooooh
Oh Oh Oh Oh

You're all the time believing
The Very Best In All,
The Devil Was An Angel,
But He Took A Little Fall,
Oooh, You Keep Your Guard Up,
For The Lurkers In The Dark,
The Day You Let It Down,
Your Chased Through The Park

x2 Ooooh Ooooh,
Oooooooo, Oooooooh
Oh Oh Oh Oh

Hey you'd better, better stay awake tonight.
Yeah you'd better keep em peeled tonight
They watch your window closely
Creep In When You Turn out all the lights
No I Wouldn't If I Were You,
Go To Sleep Tonight

You're all the time believing,
It won't happen to you
But i guarantee one evening or beofre the night is through
Oh some wolf making out he's a pup,
Blow your house right down and
Gobble you up...

x4 Ooooh Ooooh,
Oooooooo, Oooooooh
Oh Oh Oh Oh

 

Happy Slapping

When you're alone do you worry about me
When I'm alone all I do is worry, worry worry worry
Worry 'bout a heart attack, wonderin' who's got your back
If you had a healthy lunch, if somebody spiked your punch
Do the boys take care of you, or do they leave you home to brew
Yeah
Doin' fine without you

When you're alone do you sit and weep
Or do you keep the fire lit with photographs of you and me
Is the heaviness letting up, or do you feel like giving up
And if you gave up what exactly, what exactly would it mean
Overflowing septic tanks and avoiding all the bins
'Till somebody says "I knew the girl, she kept a tidy flat
But now the garden's full of rats, I know she used to sing
But now she talks to buildings
She's doin' swell without you"

When you go out, do you dread coming home
To an empty house and stale bread and nobody to warm your bed
Does it make you scared to die, 'cause that's what keeps me up at night
Lying stiff for several days with nobody there to say "wake up honey or are you dead"
And that keeps running through my head
Doin' sweet without you

When you wake up do you get a fright,
When suddenly you remember you no longer have a life
'Cause it scares the shit right out of me
An avalanche of memories come raging like a bitch on heat
So I don't stay in bed soon as I wake I flee the room say "life is great"
Stick on the radio and laugh and when the prime time jokes pretend that they relate to me
As if I'm not detached or lonely or is that how we all feel and eating crap is how we deal with life and all it's splendid trappings
Robbery and happy slapping
Yeah
Doin' sweet without you
Doin' swell without you

 

Dog

Your name is gold with diamonds underneath
My name is coal with cheapy copper leaf
And yeah we were doomed, we were doomed, we were doomed
Careful now, just a little rock

Your head is open and lets in all the light
Now would you throw your illumination all over this hot head of mine
Yeah we were doomed, but doom had it's own relief
Build up, build up a wall to set you free

Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Like a dog
Or a rat
Like a dog

My arms are open for something I don' t want to think
And will you think they'd invent some puppet to cradle your heart as it breaks
Could you be a pet and just squeeze one out of your eye
I can see you through the waterfall, to me you look perfectly dry

Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Like a dog
Or a rat
Like a dog

Careful now, just a little

Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Like a dog
Or a rat
Like a dog
Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Oh, and it go
Like it always do
Like a dog

 

Bad Weather

Bad weather on the line getting between me and mine
I think he's mad at me and it's only a matter of time
My baby's all ready for the heat but I'm not so ready for the burn
So cry gull away ____ as he tries to explain that our weather has taken a turn

Summer is fine blues skies are divine but don't keep the clouds at bay
Bad weather will keep us together if only in a cloudy way

Your rattle is melody and drive, sweeter than honey to my ear
Oh don't disappear lay away without fear and then maybe we'll call it a day
Baby's patient but running out of time and I'm running right out of tears
Oh you can be sure we'd be crying much more if your rattle wasn't all I could hear

Summer is swell, high corn and bluebell but I won't bid the rain good day
Bad weather is oh so much better than having the blues to stay

I do not need no barometer to read what conditions we have in store
Bad weather be a friend and let me pretend he loves me again as before

 

The Touch

I nearly died inside for you, I lit a fire inside for you
Feed the flame and cook me through and through
With the touch I'm alive with lust
And if it's do or die well then I must
The only question lies how much for the touch

Oh I crawl on my knees, I beg and I plead
Nothing says "I love you" like a desperate woman

I'd leap a hundred waves for a kiss
And end these wretched days in bliss
Oh be fair and let me dare to wish for
Squeeze that body dry
Oh how I tease and I turn and I bite
Oh don't be so frigid I'll be tender with it your touch

I'd ravage the face, leave little to waste
Nothing says "I need you" like a woman with taste

I wanna ring the highest bell
Fling my soul down the deepest well
Leave that withered hollow shell to tell of the touch

Split the sky in two for you and me
Lay the stars and the moon at our feet
Now I float through all the eternity with the touch

 

Wild Rum

Hello, hello

Wild rum, I've been seduced
You sent my urchins running loose
So I am free to sober dawn
When every cart comes running home
Well hello sorrow, goodbye glee
Well hello bother, come bother me

Wild rum, your some relief
You pull that chatter from my teeth
Tease that matter from the wall
You take that babble, carry woe ____

Rum it's you toast
Before I ram you down my throat
You twist and rile down every rung
So rest awhile here on my tongue

Well goodbye sorrow, farewell tears
Until tomorrow you're not welcome here

Wild rum, your some relief
You pull that chatter from my teeth
Tease that matter from the wall
You take that babble, carry woe ____

Wild rum, you're turning sour
Your pickled oil is losing power
And so from this we are aware
It marks the end of our affair
So, so long kisses long and sweet
Hello sorrow, hello hello

Wild rum, your some relief
You pull that chatter from my teeth
Tease that matter from the wall
You take that babble, carry woe ____

 

Lay Your Hand

Oh I don't know, oh I don't know, oh I don't know
How you're suppose to relay the complicated message of desire
No I don't know, no I don't know, no I don't know
How to do it when you look at me I look away
With nowhere to go and nothing to say

Lay your hand on me
See if it belongs
We're all tangled up in evolution
We can't work out the simplest of sums
Lay your hand on me
No one could deny
Therein lies the vital information
So elegantly put that it could make you sigh

Everyone knows, everyone knows, everyone knows
That delicate time when all you want is lying beyond your fingertips
But language is hard, language is cold, language is too rude and angular
No no we need another method for our lips

So lay your mouth on mine
No one can deny
Therein lies a friendly explanation
Of how the fundamental laws apply
Lay your mouth on mine
And I won't ask again
If you want to do this one thing for me
No question worth asking will remain
Lay your hand on me

Lay your hand on me
See if it belongs
We're all tangled up in evolution
We can't work out the simplest of sums
Lay your hand on me
No one could deny
Therein lies the vital information
So elegantly put that it could make you sigh

 

Universal Tipping

There's no way to shout it
And no way but to marvel
No easy way about it
Go on, go on look it in the eye
You never linger long around it
The tiny fingers are strong
But it was you who found it
So go on, go on, go on
Kick her with your shoe
Do your very worst
Should it heal or hurt
Go on and release
Go on and release

When it stings, it stings
And I'm turning red
Oh why would you ever even try
With the world conspiring to make you hard
Who'd be so foolish as to try
Only a rebel would
Only a rebel would

I jumped the wall
But were you ready
Carried a house on my back to your door
The universe tipped over and I couldn't hold it steady
The window melt and blew me over still
So come on do your worst
Before I burst
Go on and release
Go on and release
Go on and release
Go on and release

When it stings, it stings
And I'm turning red
Oh why would you ever even try
With the world conspiring to make you hard
Who'd be so foolish as to cry
Oh but a rebel would
Only a rebel would
Only a rebel would
Only a rebel would

 

End Of The End

I'm on the wave and a foreign here for a sale
Will you go easy, he'll go easy on me
I'm on the wind looking down the end of the end
Will it go easy, it go easy on me

Women beware, when you build your house on the air
It'll blow, it blow away

Oh we row and we row
And we gather the road
To the end of the end
Oh the pressure is low
Ah but the spirit is high
So the end of the end we go

He's on the reign
Pushing down the sweetest refrain
Will he blow east, he'll blow east with me
Women be warned when you build your house on the storm
It'll blow, it blow away

Oh we row and we row
And we gather the road
To the end of the end
Oh the pressure is low
Ah but the spirit is high
So the end of the end we go
