SpeedDreamer

It’s the slow burn
all about riding that feeling
’til nothing else is true
your eyes unbar
and suddenly you’re not a number
your numbered days are through

And it’s all you think about it
it’s all you think about it
at least you’re going out

Get help
that is just something that loved ones
learn to say to you
when they can’t tell
that if you are gonna be someone
there’s so much more to do

You can’t just do without
it’s all you think about
now it’s your only out

Isn’t it speed, speeddreamer?
isn’t it speed, speeddreamer?
isn’t it?
yeah, yeah
etc.

 

I'm an artist

I’m an artist
I do what I want, when I wanna
I’m an artist
do what I want, when I wanna
and why not when all that I want is a product

Hate to be the guy that always asks,
“Anybody got some shit to kick back, to kick back?”

I’m an artist
I do what I want, when I wanna
I’m an artist
do what I want, when I wanna do it
look at all this shit in the armoire I could pawn off

Maybe you should all get off my back
It’s just a little problem
so?  so what?  so what?

I’m on to something, or is it something that I’m on?
I’m on to something, or is it something that I’m on?
I’m on to something, or is it something that I’m on?
I’m on to something, or is it something that I’m on?

hives

Open your eyes and your head is a hive
A million wilting bees
Now start your day out by slipping away
It's good to have routine
Now you're fixed, and now you're broke
Now you pick your poison oak

It's hard to get by
it's hard to get by...
With hives

My little blister-licker,
Things might be good again
Maybe call your sister
and have her take you in

 

 

bottom of the lake

Fixing her hair in the morning
smoking her first cigarette
back to bed
Stepping outside for a moment
taking a sip of the sun
back to bed

Invisible, Invisible girl
Invisible, Invisible girl

Driving herself to a party
dancing ’til somebody takes her
back to bed

Invisible, Invisible girl
Invisible, Invisible girl

She’d always talked about drowning
her body was found in the morning
back to bed

Invisible, Invisible girl
Invisible, Invisible girl

 

 

monkey

They go on about
go on about
go on about
nothing
They go on about
go on about
go on about
nothing

They put money in
put money in
pull money out
nothing
put money in
put money in
pull money out
nothing

Well, you
you should feel lucky
that we, we work for free
stay, stay little monkey
up in your tree

Here have a treat
here have a treat
how do you eat
nothing?
here have a treat
here have a treat
well, how do you eat
nothing?

Well you
you’re made of lucky
yeah you
you’ll set us free
so stay
stay little monkey
up in your tree, up in your tree
now and this hat
it’s hiding a bunny
it’s tying up money
just you wait and see
Sustain, stay little monkey
up in your tree

They go on about
go on about
go on about
nothing

 

 

 

 

 

limbo

oh, Limbo
four red walls, no windows
Limbo
for reasons unknown

I’m just here waiting on
something’s gone from me
See that chair over there?
                        empty…

Limbo
if rivers run, what from?
oh, Limbo
I’d settle on someone, but

I’m just here waiting on
something’s gone from me
See that chair over there?
                        empty…

oh, Limbo

 

 

black cat

Put yourself into the body of a black cat
tippy toe on the piano just to stare at me
don’t you know there isn’t anyway that we could change back
back when you were not the enemy, and I was on my feet

Firecracker, Firecracker, out of my room
Firecracker, Firecracker, gonna go boom!

Maybe I should learn karate from a step back
but now it’s like I’m just a step behind the mirror image of me
what’s going on here (what’s going on here)
what’s going on here (what’s going on here)
I can’t catch up (what’s going on here)
I’m seeing book shelves (shut up!)
I’m seeing someone that I shouldn’t see (this is emerging emergency)

Firecracker, Firecracker, out of my room
Firecracker, Firecracker, gonna go boom!  hey!

Someone call a truce!
We’re running out of fuse!

…no, I know you don’t mean that
…no, I know you don’t mean that

 

 

junebug

Junebug, well I called your name up the stairs
and everyone else up there started laughing
laughing cuz I thought you were alone
and now everyone is gonna know
I’m calling you “junebug”

It’s the same old song
not much going on
around these parts, yeah
but just how long has it been?
has it really been now?

Junebug, well I wrote your name on my skin
over and over again
with a ball-point
There was no point
cuz I knew that you would never see
but the trick was always up my sleeve
for low points

It’s the same old joke
already been told
and no one’s laughing
oh but you’d smile
across from me
so no one could see

Junebug, now I call your name in the air
and I know that one day you will hear
won’t you now?

 

 

olympia2

I am an empty swimming pool
filled up with water
I’ve got to try to keep it cool
I’m just like my father
and so I watch my tempter, sure
when I’m around you
my life had always been a blur
until I found you
until I found you

I can’t communicate with you
unless it’s in code
you’re every color but the blue
it’s nice to be knowed
it’s nice to be knowed

More swimmers come along unless
it’s always raining
one thing to you I must confess
you can be draining
you can be draining

I am an empty swimming pool

 

 

haunted, my only

I listen to the floor boards creak
I listen to the whisper speak
so distant, so distant, so very close
this place that I’ve bought
it came with a ghost
She’s rattling the bedroom door
she’s opening the kitchen drawers
and I know that she doesn’t mean any harm
we move room to room and still there we are

This is a haunted house
This is a haunted house
Something heavy in the air
I can tell you’re not all there
This is a haunted house

At least I never sleep alone
I get to hear the lovely moan
so distant, so distant, so very close
my only, my only, my LoverGhost

This is a haunted house
This is a haunted house
You’ve already gone away
You just need a place to stay
This is a haunted house

This is a haunted house
This is a haunted house
You’ve already gone away
You just need a place to stay
This is a haunted house
etc.
