Lyrics

Unowned

I found a way of payin' off old debts
Always make more promises, than you can break
An argument that calls for more
Ends with a cold message on the freezer's door
Where there's a will; there's a won't..
From I to "we" - but still unowned..
Read it between the lies
When someone's asking someone something
Then you're proved, that is's a dumb thing
You're telling a drowning man, not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat, who's lost his oars..

Going through your things; but nothing's new
A wild imagination with the tightest view...
Our voodoo dolls are full of holes
- You learned by going, where you had to go
Where there's will, there's a won't..
From I to "we" - but still unowned
Read it between the lies
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
You're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars..
Yeah, yeah..
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
Yeah! You're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars..

'Found a way of payin' off old debts
Always make more promises than you can break
An argument that calls for more
Ends with a cold message on the freezer's door
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
Yeah, you're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars...

Up, Up Over The Mountain Top

Well, me, my wife and our daugther
We found ourselves standing in New York
It was just a mile? of? land? and it was hard to understand
But we bought it from the indian on the run

Yeah, there we were me and daddy
We were travelling through the desert all alone
We were pinely? south? of west?
We were ? just a test?
And we could get up up on the mountain top

Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain top, once again
Come on up up on the mountain toooop

By the time that she had reached
The inspiration point
I saw her with an indian
Sharing a joint
Then before I could get up
Close enough to shout stop
The indian had already done his job

Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain toooop

Yipiiiieee

Come on up up on the mountain top, once again
Come on up up on the mountain top, one more time
Come on up up on the mountain top

Yeah, we were me and daddy
We were travelling through the desert all alone
We were pinely? south? of west?
We were ? just a test?
And we could get up up on the mountain top

Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain toooop
Mountain toop
Come on up up on the mountain top, one more time
Come on up up on the mountain top, once again
Come on up up on the mountain top, for the last time
Come on up up up on the mountain top

We All Fall Down

All three wishes used
And the world is not amused
The door to your heart's still shut
A truckfull of flowers ain't love
Sorry's not enough

A brand new broken heart
Needs breaking in
Needs breaking in to start
To see it a whole new way
I wish you could hear what I say

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
I just couldn't turn myself around

And we're digging up the past
Your own karma bites your ass
Like the invisible man in the rain
Your covers blown my friend
We're slipping once again

But in the midnight of everything
You turn yourself
And wonder where you've been
For all the truth in the world
I couldn't see it I just observed

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
We can't turn ourselves around
I'll always wonder how
What's lost, can be found
Are you there if I dare turn around?
I'm there if you dare turn around

In the midnight of everything
We'll be slipping again
We'll be slipping again

We All Fall Down

All three wishes used
And the world is not amused
The door to your heart's still shut
A truckfull of flowers ain't love
Sorry's not enough

A brand new broken heart
Needs breaking in
Needs breaking in to start
To see it a whole new way
I wish you could hear what I say

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
I just couldn't turn myself around

And we're digging up the past
Your own karma bites your ass
Like the invisible man in the rain
Your covers blown my friend
We're slipping once again

But in the midnight of everything
You turn yourself
And wonder where you've been
For all the truth in the world
I couldn't see it I just observed

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
We can't turn ourselves around
I'll always wonder how
What's lost, can be found
Are you there if I dare turn around?
I'm there if you dare turn around

In the midnight of everything
We'll be slipping again
We'll be slipping again

What's the Matter

Your heart's been fired
Your blood is tired
Oh, your mind's a riot
And you need a bed..
You're emptyminded
Yeah, you're way behind it
Yeah, you've been blinded
You're a silhouette
And yeah.. you've changed
And most of your friends
Yeah, believe you're strange
Cuz, you can't forget
You wonder how rotten
Your love live's gotten
Cuz, all of a sudden
Something's wrong ..
What's the matter?
The blues got ya!!

Yeah, what's the matter?
You're looking sadder
What happens after..??
The blues got you..
I thought you had her
Now, where's your laughter?
Yeah, what's the matter?
The blues got you.!

Maybe you wanted to dumb her
But, in the midst of your slumber
Uh, you lost the number
Of the place you love the most...
Now you look in all places
Among familiar faces
But, you run out of traces
Yeah, you run out of road..
So, you're standing still
With more than time to kill
You gotta wait untill..
A new way shows..
You see how it changed you
How it slowly estranged you
Solely arranged you
Right into a ghost....

Yeah, what's the matter.?
You're lookin' sadder
What happens after..?
The blues got you..
I thought you had her
Now, where's your laughter?
Yeah, what's the matter?
The blues got ya'..

Your heart is fired
Your blood is tired
And your mind's a riot
Hey, you need a bed
Hm, you're emptyminded
Hey, you're way behind it
Hey, you've been blinded
Yeah, you're a silhouette
Yeah, what's the matter?

Wild Talk

You've got a big red tongue
'Coz you've been talking too long
I wouldn't get it back if I lended you an ear
Syllables and sounds is all I hear
So please read my hips and get a hold on your lips
Can't ask you to stop it ain't no use
It's a verbal mess when your tongue is loose
'Coz R mouth is racing while your mind is standing still
Yeah! All that wild talk It's making me ill...
Wild talk Told you that I had enough
But you just babble along the lines
It's wild tlk Wild tlk Thought I'd never get enough
But you just babble along the lines Wild tlk

Yeah! But I have to believe
You'll use your eyes to see
- That I'd might like you better if we slept together
'Coz why discuss all night? - When there's room for a fight
You just linger on You're talking me down
It's a waste of words when I'm around
Yeah! But your tape is rolling while your brain is on stand-by
All that wild tlk It must be making you high
Ahh! Too high!!
Wild tlk Told you that I had enough
But you just babble along the lines
Wild tlk - Wild talking misses
Wild tlk - Could I get through with some kisses?
Told you that I had enough, but you just babble along the lines
It's wild tlk wild wild tlk...
Yeah! But your tape is rolling while your brain is on stand-by
All that wild tlk It must be making you high
Wild tlk Told you that I had enough
But you just babble along the lines Yeah! It's wild tlk

Etc.

Wild Thing In The Woods

The fever went away so ly
The heat felt good – like someone kissed me
I fell through dark and into darkness
My hands reach out, not sure I want this

My skin is fire and flames
I'm so changed and strange

The wild thing in the woods
It was the wild thing in the woods
It's not what I already lost
It's what I'm going to loose
To the wild thing in the woods

I've got open arms like a broken puppet
Falling backwards into the forest
Nothing here to see but shadows
The sound of souls begging to move on

It's an angels wish
It's myself I can't fix

The wild thing in the woods
It was the wild thing in the woods
It's not what I already lost
It's what I'm going to loose
To the wild thing in the woods
Yeayeayeayea the wild thing in the woods

It's the wild thing – I'm the wild thing in the woods

Women Are Crazy

I take a breath, and keep it locked inside...
I know where the lines are, I know where to hide..
It's a different kind of cattle drive
And it goes on for miles and miles...
With this I could be going,
And there's noone here to blame,
Yeah it is a funny picture
- But now I'm cool,
Let's take a look,
With open minds empty of desire..

I turned every cheek my body had,
And if it helped I'd been your punching bag
Yeah first I shake and try to laugh...
And then kamikaze - women are crazy...

How you look depends on where you go
Take more, remember less
And face the facts and get your ass back home
It's all in your wildest guess...
With this I could be going,
Cuz there's noone here to blame,
Yeah it makes a funny picture
With no sense of style
Still a wide eyed child..
Raised on fairytales and lies...

Wonderful

Born grown-up
This is kids stuff
Yeah the difference is unteachable
It's stupid
I've been through it
But the powers are unbeatable

Nothing I've seen will be
Stay in obscurity
Don't trouble your worried mind
Leave it behind it's waste of time

I'm so involved in it, I can't give up my stride
Today the world is just a setting for my life
Yeah today I'd be so grateful to be right and wonderful
Wonderful....

Who's listening
I'm wishing
But my whispers are unhearable
I'd leave now
If I knew how
But hesitation is untreatable

Enough to tear you apart
The weakness is a like a spark
Maybe it's not getting through
Maybe it wont when I want it to

It's my turn to be right...
And wonderful....
It's my turn to be loved
And wonderful
It's my turn to be right
Yeah wonderful

In my window
Moving so slow
I've lost a part of me that I can't find

Written In Water

Set out on a laughless day
Like a troupe of clowns
Peekin' out of a show man's car
Through cabbage town...
You feel a cold wind blow
Through your open mind
The end is about to start
So you shut it hard...
As the weather girl predicts:
Conducting the clouds with her stick
The day will be clear'n'funny
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Down the crater of your ear

As long as the flavor lasts
In c-h-e-w-i-n-g gum
As long as we float around
This golf ball sun...
The light to replace the day
Is ten shades of gray
A kiss removes the skin
Shows you where you've been
Under the ultra-violet ray
A rule every fool obeys
Hold up your name in fire
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear..
Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Down-the-velvet-crater-of-your-ee-aa-rrr

Yeah, written in water
It's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear
Written in water
It's bound to disappear
Down the velvet crater of your ear
Iiiiiiiiiiiihhjairr!... Written in water

You Do What I've Just Done

You hunt the smartest animal and that's the human being
You don't know how smart man is - smarter than he seems...
Their fathers groin that breeds'em, their mothers breast that feeds'em
Yeah, the do - Yeah, they do...

To be childish keeps you young, but to be treated like a child
Makes you old too soon - Haven't spent time with Jesus to know if that's true
Our fathers backs that leaves us, our mothers arms that needs us
Yeah, they do - Yeah, they do...

Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer want to be a fireman
Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer wanna be a fireman - and I know, I know you'll understand

You hunt the smartest animal - and that's the human being
You don't know how smart man is - smarter than he seems...
Their fathers groin that breeds'em, their mothers breast that feeds'em
Yeah, the do - Yeah, they do... Yeah, they do - Yeah, they do...

Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer want to be a fireman
Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer wanna be a fireman - and I know, I know you'll understand

You Filled My Head

No one taught me how to change my mind
I need one great voice that tells me that it's fine
I come from a small place of one evil, one true
And I know that silence destroys the truth in you
You filled my head with fear
You said the world was bad
And then you shook my ear
You said it was a fact
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
I'm hearing echoes of the words you said

I'm surrounded by monsters and I repeat as I should
Fired up by a burning desire to be good
I hope that my troubles would die where they were
But a supernova of memories will occur
You filled my head with fear
You said the world was bad
And then you shook my ear
You said it was a fact
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
I’m hearing echoes of the words you said
Yeah you filled my head….

Hey, I don't wanna look back now
Even in the worst of times
Hey, look at my shadow
It's the shadow of a child

You filled my head with fear
You said the world was bad
And then you shook my ear
You said it was a fact
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
Nothing is important
Memory locked the gate
And if the door would open
Reveal a better place
Do I still have dreams
In this frozen state?
Everybody's haunted
By a past they hate...
I'm hearing echoes of the words you said
Yeah you filled my head…
