A Hill Of Beans

A hill of beans
A quarter cheese
The gravy train
Is coming round again
I'm this late every Xmas day
I return back from work just to claim my stake

A den of thieves
A hotel of sleaze
The rainy day I'm saving for again
I'm this late every Xmas binge
The NYPD choir are still singing fucking Galway Bay

Please please build my star
My eyes are blinking in the sun
I know that I can be unfair
I can turn her around
When the excuse gets stuck in my throat
I can turn her around

Brooklyn bridge
Kisses Liberty's lips
The Paddy wagon
Is coming around again

But I'm this late every Xmas binge
Now I get salvation at the YMCA

Please please build my star
My eyes are blinking in the sun
I know that I can be unfair
I can turn her around
When the excuse gets stuck in my throat
I can turn her around

But she blows her whistle and turns me around
She wears the trousers and turns me around

 

Machu Picchu

Sometimes I know you
Sometimes I don't
Let's smoke a cigarette that I just rolled
On our own

Today I just heard that punk rock is back
I got these lozenges
Half a whole pack
I feel stoned

Spanish Johnny don't live in Johannesburg
He went to the river and lost himself
He fell asleep
Thinking of me
President gas is the government
Charlie don't surf
He's lonely
He fell asleep
Thinking of me

It's raining in my mind
No tears come down
I could be anything
When sleep comes around
I'm lost and found

There is no justice left in this world
I'm looking stupid
Out in the cold
Minus a coat

Spanish Johnny don't live in Johannesburg
He went to the river and washed himself
He fell asleep
Thinking of me
President gas is the government
Charlie don't surf
He's lonely
He fell asleep
Thinking of me

Sometimes I know you
Sometimes I don't

 

No Distance

This night could be like glass
Just depends who you are
Mark the rim with finger tip
A piece of evidence
My mind's condensing
My thought's are racing
I tried to read in your mind
No clue no slip
Can't question it
Nothing's left up to fate

My mind's gone blank and there's no distance
When these monsters finally attack
Who'll be there to protect us?

Now I've gotta make a new start
Somehow gotta make a new start
I'll start with this

Push finger into shape fist
Try to knock out my mind
Leaving scent on skin and bone
For morning nostalgia
We're sub talking
We haven't listen to a word that we've said
The shining touch
These feelings rush
Try to take it all in

My mind's gone blank and there's no distance
When these monsters finally attack
Who'll be there to protect us?

 

Supermarket

Cowboys, head 'em off at the pass
These are the best years of your life
The pain and anguish shouldn't last
It's not like pulling teeth or a wife

For whom the supermarket place still awaits
For whom the supermarket place is any day
When I get excited, when I get excited
It's all or nothing at all for you and me
When I get excited, when I get excited
I never pretended, I never

Little boys get with the little girls
Don't be shy with sugar 'n spice
The disappointment might hurt
The bitter taste of all things nice

And the supermarket place still awaits
And the supermarket place is any day
When I get excited, when I get excited
It's all or nothing at all for you
When I get excited, when I get excited
I never intended, I never

For whom the supermarket place is any day
When I get excited, when I get excited
It's all or nothing at all for you and me
When I get excited, when I get excited
I never intended
Stormy nights and sitting on the floor

 

Versus Jesus

I know everything about you
I could rosy rings around you
You're getting heavy with the flavour
Ambition in your eye
Taken up the notion
Versus Jesus became mine

Got me a strength
Inner strength my old man would find hard to bend but
I ain't got a friend
Consider me no longer a friend
You're getting heavy with the flavour
Ambition in your eye
Taken up the notion
Versus Jesus became mine

I don't know what I can do as it distresses me to be here with you
I don't know what I can say as it tears me apart to see you this way
I know everything about you
I could run rosy rings around you

 

Sunnyday

Pick up a Sunnyday real estate for me
Then it's home to my home
Where I can't afford the rent
I'm drinking to remember
The simple things that we once had
Memory ain't what it used to be
I wake up in someone else's bed

My hands are shaking
My heartbeat is racing
My head is aching
My feet got grounded
I'm dreaming drunk just maybe hanging on

Fidelity gets me high
45 revolutions fly by
I'm hating my job
I think I'll quit today
Pick up the telephone
The line soaked in alcohol
Numbers fall from numbers
The ashes turned to embers

My hands are shaking
My heartbeat is racing
My head is aching
My feet got grounded
And I came in drunk
I'm dreaming drunk just maybe hanging on

Here comes the Sunnyday real estate for me
Then it's home to my home
Where I can't afford the rent
I pick up the telephone
The line soaked in alcohol
Numbers fall from numbers
The ashes turned to embers

 

Western Union

So what's attractive's number
I'm thinking in my head
Trying hard to remember
All of those things you did
Let's hash it out now
Without condition can
Paying debt up to add things
Your questions worked so well

What part of human culture (is)
Distracted by hearts and things
When everything you wanted
Has just been dressed up cheap again

Someone stop this paper
From being aimed at me
Drive down there and get it
Afraid of what we'll meet
The question of without good sense, don't care
Thank you for different chances
Your heartbeat worked so well

It wasn't so much what you said
As much as the way you said it
There nothing I can do to change your heart
Well suddenly you hear what I hear
It's not just background noise
It's back to your final mind

East coast west coast reunion
East coast west coast reunion
East meets west

 

If Only Never

I heard, I sensed, I saw
Sensations sensed before
Hey black man, Jean Jackson
You gotta search while I'm...

What she thought, she thought he wanted
What she thought, she thought he wanted
Golden beaches
Well I'm sorry, I'm sorry
If only never, if only never

I touched, I smelled, I saw
That nation here before
It's crystal, crystal clear
Power to the people

It's what she thought, she thought he wanted
What she thought, she thought he wanted
Golden beaches, well I'm sorry, I'm sorry
If only never, if only never
White golden beaches, well I'm sorry, I'm sorry
If only never, if only never
Man never did

She spends her time on golden beaches
Well I'm sorry, I'm sorry
If only never, if only never

 

Roses

Here I stand with the future in my hands
But the glass done broke
The glass done broke
I'll save the misfit who will take to the bullet
But the glass done broke
The glass done broke

This little bird wants up in the air
This little girl wants curls in her red hair
This pussycat wants a doggy bag
This is the end
Of dead and everything
It's not over till it's over
I see a bright light shining
Now we're alright

It's not over till it's over
I see a bright light shining
Now we're alright

Wound up in a factory with my head where my ass should be
But the place was strong
The lord takes away and the lord should return
And the place was strong
The place was strong

This little bird wants up in the air
This little girl wants curls in her red hair
This pussycat wants a doggy bag
This is the end
Of dead and everything
It's not over till it's over
I see a bright light shining
Now we're alright

You're the queen of the wasteland you are
Original English rose
The queen of the wasteland you are
Original English rose
But it's not over till it's over
I see a bright light shining
Now it's alright

Uses Gettin' Used

Sweet angel watch over
Geisha doll I count the days
My patience spilled over
The love you masquerade
Used gettin' used

High flyer fly over
My conscience a caravan
I'm falling
And I can't stand
Used gettin' used

Hey angel come over
I'm different
I play guitar
Not vacant
Hardly ever wrong
This last line I leave up to god
Used gettin' used
