1. Love Affair

Posted: Sun Jan 05, 2003 1:28 am Post subject: Love Affair

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Love Affair

There was a love affair in this building

the kind of love affair, which every respectable building must keep as a legend

Slowly festering through an innocent by the way

or have you heard

he was perfect except for the fact that he was an engineer and mothers prefer doctors and law-yers...

Yet despite this imperfection he was clean looking and respectable looking

and you'll never find a mother who doesn't appreciate a natural man

So he grew healthy aloe Vera plants by the window

healthy teeth in his mouth

healthy hair on his head

He grew healthy wavy brown hair on his head

the kind that babies always go for with sticky little fingers...

Thought I'd cry for you forever

But I couldn't so I didn't

people's children die and they don't even cry forever Thought I'd see your face in my mind for all time

But I don't even remember what your ears looked like

And the clock still strikes midnight and noon

and the sun still rises and so does the moon

birds still migrate south and people move on

even though I'm no longer in your arms

Thought the mountain would crumble

and the rivers would bend

but I thought all wrong and the world did not end

guess the maps will just have to stay the same for a while Didn't even need therapy to rehabilitate my smile

rehabilitate my smile

Thought I'd cry for you forever

But I couldn't so I didn't...

3. Back of a truck

Posted: Sun Jan 05, 2003 1:31 am Post subject: Back of a truck

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Back of a truck

She lifted the monument in her monumental arms

She was the mother superior with carry-on luggage charms

She was this androgynous powder nosed girl next door

She had eaten her dog and he was back for more back for more

Her gym teacher thought himself a sweat sock demi god

Her geraniums thought themselves an alien pod

Her front porch gave way beneath classified weight

And when the ambulance came they said it's much too late oh it's much too late

Now the people of New Guinea and the people of LA

Have been pen pals for years cause they both hate ballet

Only the pandas and bears have made a clean getaway

But the news bulletin claims it's gonna be ok

Now Miss Lucy had a sweatshop where the immigrants worked

Problem was they all turned to pumpkins at the twelve o'clock stroke

Promptly confiscated by police precinct number X

That was when the alien geraniums demanded the facts

No violence off course no violence off course hey no violence off course. Off course? Why yes, of course

Here the story gets hazy and the hair gets too long

The TV gets quiet as we hear a real bad song

The mothers get whiskey and the girlfriends get tongue

And there's a back of a truck selling smoke free lungs

There's a back of a truck selling alien pods

There's a back of a truck selling game show hosts

There's a back of a truck selling the souls of the dead

There's a back of a truck selling crumb free bread

There's a back of a truck selling the back of a car

There's a back of a car selling roadway maps

There are roadway maps selling the back of a head

Hey how much for that back of a head, man?

Hey wait a minute that's my back of a head

Hey you can't sell that man.

That's mine.

Hey sell it back to me man.

Hey sell it back to me It's mine!'

She lifted the monument in her monumental arms

She was the mother superior with carry-on luggage charms She was this androgynous powder nosed girl next door

She had eaten her dog and he was back for more...

4. Buildings

Posted: Sun Jan 05, 2003 1:34 am Post subject: Buildings

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Buildings

he was a husband who drove his wife home drunk from the parties

he was a husband who drove his wife home

and in the car he would gently lean her head on the side door window

and in the bathroom he would hold her hair back and hope, saying;

they build buildings oh they build buildings oh they build buildings

so tall these days

and in the morning she'd wake up and crouch recollections all day

but she would always always wake up the next morning

and he'd take one look at her a say baby that's ok

and her conscience would issue yet another last warning, saying;

they build buildings oh they build buildings oh they build buildings

so tall these days

and she would ask for time and she'd ask for time and she would ask for time and she would beg for time, and she would beg for time and beg for time and call it a gift

and he would give her time and he'd give her time and he would give her time and he'd give her time-

but time is not given and time is not taken

it just sifts through its sift

and it was coffee and coffee and coffee and coffee and coffee and coffee some more

he'd go to work and she'd take a sick day and rot at the core

and by the time he came back she'd scrub the bathroom and make it smell like pine

it would be almost as if nothing had happened and he'd give her time, saying;

they build buildings, oh they build buildings, oh they build buildings, oh don't they build buildings, oh they build buildings, they build buildings so tall these days

and she would ask for time and shed ask for time and she would ask for time and she would beg for time, and she would beg for time and beg for time and call it a gift

and he would give her time and he'd give her time and he would give her time and he'd give her time-

but time is not given and time is not taken

it just sifts through its sift

he was a husband drove time home pine scrub bathroom window don't they build buildings so tall these days...

6. flyin

I went flyin' out of my window

I went flyin' out of my window

been caught doin' it once or twice

but it feels so real nice

oh it feels so real nice

saw the earth and I saw the sky

saw the earth and I saw the sky

been caught doin' it once or twigh

but it feels so real nigh

oh it feels so real nigh

oh it feels so real nigh

went to school with them boring teachers

who thought they was all my preachers

so I went starin' out of my window

I went starin' out of my window

been caught doin' it once or twice

but it feels so real nice

oh it feels so real nice,

oh it feels so real nice, that I might even do it again

one of them took me with him to sleep

said not to make a peep

said it'll be a secret we keep

so I didn't make a peep

kissed my cheek and rubbed my feet

but his kissin' didn't taste so sweet

told him I just wanted to sleep

so he got mad

and he got madder, and he got maddest of them all

sent me flyin' out of his window

sent me flyin' out of his window

not caught once, not caught twice

***

and I've been flyin' ever since and I've been flyin' in the skies...

7. wasteside

I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow

but its better than sleeping by the wasteside of today

all the barbershops and funeral-homes were open

and the customers were coming and the business was doing great

I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow

just dreaming dreams and drooling on my bed

all the people in my town would be born

then they'd get themselves a little hair cut

and then promptly after they'd be dead

I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow

when a drunk girl awoke me on the train

but I did not see her stumbling and I did not hear her mumbling

as I dubbed myself a passenger

and kindly stepped away

I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow I was sleeping

I was sleeping I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow

I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow of tomorrow

ladies and gentlemen

I was just sleeeeee-ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I was sleeping by the wasteside of tomorrow

but it's better than sleeping by the wasteside of today

all the barbershops and funeral-homes were open

and the customers were coming and the business

was

doing

great...

8. Pavlov's Daughter

Posted: Sun Jan 05, 2003 1:39 am Post subject: Pavlov's Daughter

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. Pavlov's Daughter

The grave diggers getting stuck in the machine

pickings getting slim, slimmer

I hear them say my name

regin-ah, regin-ah, regin-a-ah

yes I'm putting the boulder to my ear

and I still can't hear

whadya think I was an amateur

playin' with my temperature...

If I hear another song about angels

if I see another feather on the dumb-box

I'm gonna go to Babylon and get me some whiskey

Gonna get me some whiskey now...

If I hear another song about angels

if I see another feather on the dumb-box

I'm gonna go to Babylon and get me some whiskey now

My name is Lucille and I know how you feel

I live downstairs

I hear you taking out your garbage

I hear you loving your girlfriend

I hear you loving yourself too

I hear you turning your thoughts off

I turn mine off too

The only thing I hear is you

and you don't sound good and you don't sound nice

and you don't sound good and you don't sound right

and it get's quiet...

Pavlov's daughter woke up in the morning

Heard the bell ring

And something deep inside of her made her want to salivate

So she lay there drooling on her pillow

So she lay there, the sun skimming her skin, and drooling on her pillow

Pavlov's daughter

And it was far away and hazy like a dream

not a dream, but the ocean,

not the ocean, but forever...

The grave diggers getting stuck in the machine...

...And it gets quiet...

As quiet as an ambulance checking out the neighborhood, waiting for the blade to slip and that final blow, but nothing happens, it's a cruel joke

as ironic as a ticker tape parade over the rain forest,

as ironic as a ticker tape parade over my head,

as ironic as a ticker tape parade over my head going down stream... to where...it isn't... even... real...rain... at...all...

9. 2.99 cent Blues

Posted: Sun Jan 05, 2003 1:40 am Post subject: 2.99 cent blues

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. 2.99 cent Blues

Somewhere far away where I roam

there live my buffalo twin in our twin buffalo home

he calls me by my native name

and takes good care of my native son

he even lets us drink spring water on Sundays 2.99 a gallon

And somewhere further down the road where I also roam

there lives my caterpillar cousin beneath a fancy engraved tomb head stone

in the middle of his southern town

beneath a cemetery burial plot

he don't pay rent no more

but he sure likes the spot

but in the furthest place I've ever known

where even I so rarely roam

there lives a boy who just come back from war

his flesh was wounded but he made it back home

his mother calls him by his given name

and the neighbors whisper how he prefers to be alone

and he gets nightmares about boys dripping blood sold for 2.99 a gallon

but when I get me all real tired

and I got no more strength to roam

I catch me a horse driven carriage ride

from a local man named Ethan Frome

he don't say much as he tips his hat

and he carries his body as heavy as lead

and he could have been flying through the snow on his sled

but he wife was in bed and the horses had to be fed

besides it's 2.99 a story

pay up it's just 2.99 a story...

2.99 a gallon
