Birdbrain

Birdbrain
I'm out, I'm out in bushes
Playing, playing with plastics
Birdbrain, they say I'm a birdbrain
If I am then can I just fly away

shoe straps & eyelashes washing my brain
Twenty-five years are just washed down the drain

They are, they are a drunken bird
Flying, into the windows
Birdbrain, they say I'm a birdbrain
If I am then can I just fly away

shoe straps & eyelashes washing my brain
Twenty-five years are just washed down the drain

shoe straps & eyelashes washing my brain
Twenty-five years are just washed down the drain

If I am then can I just fly away

Skeleton Key

I am so seasick of being out to sea
It's got to be the worst thing
That's ever happened to me
But I've got my free pass
My skeleton key
I can open every door that
Stands in front of me

You are so crazy
Should be under lock and key
You've got to be the worst thing
That's every happened to me
But I don't get angry
Got my skeleton key
I can open every door that
Stands in front of me

O.K.
I'm seasick
I'm floating all around the sea
Monkey bars
Gone too far
Got my skeleton key
Got my skeleton key

You are so crazy
Should be under lock and key
You've got to be the worst thing
That's ever happened to me
I don't get angry
Got my skeleton key
I can open every door that
Stands in front of me

O.K.
I'm seasick
I'm floating all around the sea
Monkey bars
Gone too far
Got my skeleton key
Got my skeleton key

Caress

Caress inside my bones
Caress inside my bones
A house inside a home

A bird 90 times alone
A bird 90 times alone
I am always alone
I am always alone

A bird 90 times alone
A bird 90 times alone
I am always alone
I am always alone
A house inside a home
I am always alone

Guy Who Is Me

Tears fall down like paper around you
But I cannot get through
There's nothing I can do
'Cause you steal secrets from the gods
But I'm no god, and I wish I was
Birds fly high and fall around you
But I have to climb the stairs
You climb high just like a soldier
Your closet mind is so fucking warm

Come and see the guy who is me
An astronaut, he's lost in space
In a station where I have no friends
This is the end
Of the universe
Stay with me for quiet reasons
You don't have to make a scene
Exploding chrome glistening in the street light
And I went around and watched all of you
All of you

Come and see the guy who is me
An astronaut, he's lost in space
In a station where I have no friends
This is the end
Of the universe
Stay with me for quiet reasons
You don't have to make a scene
Exploding chrome glistening in the street light
And I went around and watched all of you
All of you

Enemy

Enemy, all over my body
She's wrapped up
She's wrapped up in alcohol
She's wrapped up
She's wrapped up in caffeine
She's my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy

I woke up, she was painting the lattice
She can't see through her mother's magnets
She can't see, she breathes electricity
She's my enemy
She is my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy
She's my enemy, enemy

I woke up, she was painting the lattice
She can't see through her mother's magnets
She can't see, she breathes electricity
She's my enemy
She is my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy
She's my enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy
She's my enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy
She's my enemy, enemy, enemy, enemy
She's my enemy, yeah

Crawl

Please crawl across the sea
Please crawl across to me
You can take me anywhere
Please take me, I don't care

Please crawl across the silent door
40 smiles 500 miles

Can you take this trip
Can you take this leap
Into my life, one big heap
Please crawl across to me

Please crawl across the silent door
40 smiles 500 miles

But you won't find me there
For I cannot be found
'Cause I'm just a lying son of a bitch
And I don't need this town

Can you take this trip
Can you take this leap
Into my life, one big heap
Please crawl across to me

Please crawl across the silent door
40 smiles 500 miles

But you won't find me there
For I cannot be found
'Cause I'm just a lying son of a bitch
And I don't need this town

Please crawl across to me
Please crawl across to me
Please crawl across to me
Please crawl across to me
I can't see
Please crawl across to me
I can't see

Fortune Teller

Reaching back, I'm fortune teller
I'll tell her I'm the way
There will be those days
Can't make them go away
There are always ways of telling
They are crazy about me
Grass is what I'm after
Tracks got off the train
What is it that you're after
I can't make this train go any faster

There are times, when the days go by
And I'm a total stranger
Plaster souvenirs them shouting in my ear
I can't make fat a skinny cat
Baby substitute
I'm a fortune teller
I'll tell her I'm the way
What is it that you're after
I can't make this train go any faster

I'm a fortune teller
I'm a fortune teller
I'm a fortune
I'm a fortune teller
I'm a fortune
I'm a fortune teller, yeah

Baby

Y'got married, in the morning
Suzy, don't worry
I'm hidin' your lies in
I'm diggin' "New Day Rising"

Life is a maybe
Because you're such a baby
Life is a maybe

You're crazy so lazy
You're feeding me spaces
I'm kneelin' cuz you're feeling
You keep your hands on the ceiling

Life is a maybe
Because you're such a baby
Life is a maybe
Because you're such a baby
Life is a maybe

I'll never believe you
I can really see you
You're feedin' my thievin'
Oh baby, keep me singing

Life is a maybe
Because you're such a baby
Life is a maybe
Because you're such a baby
Life is a maybe

Directive

You come down, change my life around
I fell 40 feet today
Get on the ground and feel around
You found something worth my way
You're whining, my magnum's shining
I'm shooting bullets everywhere
This gun's for two
Yeah they pass through you
Just as if you were not there

Now I'm on my face in this lonely place
And I'm pulling metal from my leg
Yeah second wind come around again
I'm alright you keep your head
I'm closer, a roller coaster
Rick and racking in my brain
A boulder right off my shoulder
I'm alright you keep your hands away from me

Now I'm done and I've had my fun
I'm underneath the killing floor
I take my place and you're on your face
I could not have asked for more
You're whining, my magnum's shining
I'm shooting bullets everywhere
A boulder, a roller coaster
I'm alright you keep your hands away from me
Away from me
Away from me
Away from me

Bleeding Heart

When I am relaxed
I drop my drink
My bleeding heart
Has a gate of thorns
When I turn on my sink
The guy next door turns his off
But my bleeding heart
Will not go away

Six hundred thousand miles
Cannot squelch its flame
I wear my bleeding heart
Right underneath my sleeve
Oh, roses, daggers, thorns
And words that make a name
I wear my bleeding heart
It will not go away
Will not go away
Will not go away

Oh, roses, daggers, thorns
And words that make a name
I wear my bleeding heart
It will not go away
Will not go away
Will not go away
Will not go away
