Hahaha 03:51
I saw what happened to you And I knew it was gonna happen to me to and I Couldn’t help but laugh the whole way through Hahaha Do you remember when I told you I ran into an old friend of mine And he reached out his hand and he offered me a dime And we laughed and laughed till half past nine Hahaha You pick me up when I’ve fallen And you pick up the phone whenever I’m calling When I’m fallen and I don’t know what to do I woke up in such a foggy haze today But I want to see you again tonight because all we do is pray and play Well the sun is almost done, and the fun is on its way When you call me up when I need reminding And you lighten me up so I go to bed smiling You always know exactly what to do
Cockroach 04:57
When I found you standing silently Frozen across the room Do you want to know what I thought of you? I'd like to thank you for all you've done for me Now would you please leave me in peace? I tried to leave you be But you You’re too ugly to live and you’re too young to die I'd like to leave you alone and forget you’re alive but you’re between my legs crawling and I can feel my skin crawl I know how you're thinking how does it feel to think so small? You shined a light on the darkness in my heart As I tore you apart I tried to set you free but you're making this so hard for me Up and down all along my young body Sneaking around all over me Thank you for reminding me of the darkness inside me One that there always will be
The Star 05:02
In the heart of the sun Shines a dying light A million million dots Light up up the infinite night This vital projection Comes warm and bright A messenger in the darkness Taking us on a cosmic flight Worlds born of unknown power From the ancient trees to the alien flowers Illuminated in a star shower And now you merchants of doom You perpetrators of crime Ruining worlds you consume Death closely trailing you behind Power sought by fools Leaves you limp and blind What will there be left to rule Underneath your mountains of fire? Doomsday rings in the midnight hour While the crystal clinks in the ivory tower Will you stand up or have your world devoured? Instruments of unknown power Sought after by warring cowards Annihilated in a star shower
My religion doesn't allow me to fight Everyone wins and nobody dies My religion teaches me how to love To love yourself is to love everyone Even criminals Well they’re people too! What do you think you would do If you walked a mile in their shoes? Paying your dues for a life of neglect or abuse Well wouldn’t you be blue too? Forgiveness begins with you! My religion teaches me how to live To give the world all that I can give I belong to a cult of love And if we share it, there’s always enough Love To go around Spread it all over town Anything could come back around So why would you put anyone down? It’s better to let your love abound I was mad at myself for so long Years of my life gone Sensing that something was wrong Then, when I was drifting at sea Forgiveness came and rescued me That’s when I found the key... Forgiveness begins with me!
When I’m gone You may feel like crying Sing it in a song babe And let em know how you’re feeling inside The sun’s gonna rise Early someday And light up the emptiness where I once used to lay When I’m gone I’ll follow the sun So hold on now To your tears and your cries They’ll be all the medicine you need to deal with the surprise So you’d better save your tears babe, you’re gonna need em some lonely nights And when I go A hard wind’s gonna blow And take me over to another shore When I’m gone If you want to move on Take my broken promises and put them in a song And sing it all night long And maybe you’ll remember me someday When I’m gone
It's easy to be kind Easier than trying to be right all the time I have to see this as a sign We finally found each other after all this time Now you know I have your back, I hope you have mine If I ever let you down Just tell me gently and I'll figure it out Listen to your heart if you want to penetrate my mind Honey I know it feels good to be right So count your bills and prove your science But when you deal with living things that have feelings I’d say it’s better for you to be kind! Be patient with your mom You never know how soon she’ll be gone And it’s your mother, do you realize where you came from?
Tiger 04:42
I pulled over to the shoulder And I saw you standing there I rode right into your lair Tiger tiger on your thigh, girl Guarding your supply Do I have a chance of getting by Someday I’ll have your hide in my home And I’ll mount your pretty bones Someday mama when I hit the road I’m gonna take you when I go Tiger tiger are you shy girl? I thought I heard you sing Open up and give me everything Someday I’ll have your hide in my home And I’ll mount your pretty bones I’ve got a tiger’s tail in my hands And I feel like a man
Oh now baby would you stand here by my side? Oh now would you maybe tolerate my pride? Over and over you hear me beggin “Do you wanna take me for a ride?” I want to take your picture, give me that wild smile Let me leave you open wide We would be bouncin and singin, boppin and movin, rockin til the break of day Who knows where we’ll be tomorrow, baby come on and play Well I know a place where the sun is shining, let me take you on a holiday Take, take, take my hand and let’s go run away Do you want to take me with you? Baby would you let me take your picture? Don’t you wanna go with me? Oh now baby would you let me come inside? Oh baby here I come… Oh now baby would you please make a little way? Ooh lover save some lovin for another day I’ve got other things I gotta do today But before I leave Baby would you say ‘cheese’?
Ghost Blues 04:12
You wooed me my love With nothing but a ruse You wooed me love With a promise of abuse When I met you I was tender like a bruise When I met you I was broken like a tooth So you became the mother of my blues I’ll be singing Hallelujah When I’ve got nothing left to lose We made love Among the relics and the pews And we danced And shared a bottle of the truth Then you sent me walking Without a letter or a clue Oh you cut me loose If you see my love Would you share with her the news The poison you used Has left my heart immune
