Sunflower Suit

How can I follow suit
When nothing seems to matter anyway
Living too close to nothing new
It takes a lot to get used to today
But I follow suit
And I follow suit anyway
But I follow suit
And I follow suit everyday
And I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
It's a fashion meant for me today
I'm in love in with a sunflower suit
Nothing else matters anyway
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
That is how I get the birds to stay
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
It's no wonder if I can last
Broken fingers, broken glass
No straps and no safety net
I'll make an impression they can't forget
But I follow suit
And I follow suit anyway
But I follow suit
And I follow suit everyday
And I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
It's a fashion meant for me today
I'm in love in with a sunflower suit
Nothing else matters anyway
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
That is how I get the birds to stay
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit
I'm in love with a sunflower suit

The Plank

I would walk the plank
I would die with my boots on
Like all good cowboys do
And you could find the treasure on your shore
Star spangled winter night
Drags me up and out of bed
I'm all riled up
And I dream dream, dream, dream, dream
Guys in ties and manly thighs
Aren't supposed to hide their eyes
Unless they have no alibis
And then they must die in disguise

Impossible

One things for sure
It's not the same anymore
Close the door
There's a wind coming in
And if it's true
I will believe in you, in you, in you
And if it's true
I will believe you, believe you
That's what I will do
And if your sure
Say no more
It's impossible
It's impossible
In and out
I'm runnin out of time
Friends of mine
I feel like I'm getting old
And If it's true
There are some things that I must do
Me and you
Me and you
And if it's true
I will believe you, believe you
That's what I will do
And if you're sure
Say no more
It's impossible
It's impossible

500,000 Warnings

Five hundred thousand warnings I'll smash you
Six hundred thousand million times that we've been through
Inside an old farm house that I've never been to
I'll find a thousand reasons, It's you I'll do it to
Ladies of the evening, suit men of the day
Blue light sparkle gets me every time
They drag me, drag me, drag me, trying to make me
Living inside the right time
It's you I'll do it to
It's you I'll do it to
Create myself a nightmare
Refuse to see it through
This is the story of my life
They drag me, drag me, drag me, trying to correct me
They know I'll never get it right
It's you I'll do it to
It's you I'll do it to
It's you I'll do it to
It's you I'll do it to

The Bus

Walked home in the rain today
Took the subway train today
Went to my room, listened to Billie Holiday
Stared down to broadway
Took the bus home today
Had a staring contest with a guy I did not know today
Outstared everyone on the bus today
Took it home to Broadway
I don't care if you don't understand
I will be there anyway
Just found out what to be today
See it through
I don't care if you don't understand
I will be there anyway
Just found out what to be today
See it through

Racine

Racine took a trip to Long Island
She got so tired of Times Square
Sometimes she'd look at herself in the mirror
Sometimes she wouldn't even dare
Racine always dreamed of Long Island
Things always seemed so clean there
She took a train out of Penn Station
Blonde wig covered her day hair
But as she saw her reflection in the black windowed train
Sweat poured out and washed her makeup off like wet paint in the rain
Racine Racine Racine Racine
Racine sat in a bar on Long Island
Not knowing anybody there
Some boys like to have a good time
Beat her in a parking lot and left her there
But as Racine stood up in front of the great wall
The K-Mart lights bled like her heart abandoned as that mall

In The Attic

There is a pause in my life
That started when I was in the attic
Just a few moments now
Before the whole thing collapses
See the cracks in the windows
They've been there for so long
And the beams falling
As I run down the stair
I can't wait to fall down
In my deep earth shelter
At the basement of the earth
At the bottom of the freezing sea
Now I can't wait
No, I can't wait
No, I can't wait
I walk through the kick down graveyard
Just thinking about myself
And I cut my finger
Walking through the rusty junkyard
And I get a splinter
Walking through the lumberyard
Trying to find a beam
To rebuild my life
I can't wait to fall down
In my deep earth shelter
At the basement of the earth
At the bottom of the creaking sea
Now I can't wait
No, I can't wait
No, I can't wait
I can't wait to fall down
In my deep earth shelter
At the basement of the earth
At the bottom of the creaking sea
I can't wait
No, I can't wait
No, I can't wait
No, I can't wait

Flushing stars

When she combs her hair she flushes stars down her back
Tiny avalanches crumbling, gliding, falling down
And she's calling us, calling our cause
They're all waiting for her to come down from her stars
When her problems come they come and go like winter time
And I'm pacing with her fitting in just like a rhyme
And she's calling us, calling our cause
They're all waiting for her to come down from her star
But I can't wait forever, I've no time
But I can't wait forever, I've no time
When the sidewalk opens it lets you into better things
She learned that long ago opponents lash with wicked things
And she's calling us, calling all cars
They're all waiting for her to come down from her stars
But I can't wait forever, I've no time
But I can't wait forever, I've no time
But I can't wait forever, I've no time
But I can't wait forever, I've no time
No!

Walk Away

Geez, would you just walk away
If you heard me say, say so
It's just a rainy day
Raining outside again
Now when it rains it pours
Outside open doors again
Geez, would you just walk away
If you heard me say, say so
Now when it rains it pours
Outside the old man snores
Raining outside
Geez, would you just walk away
If you heard me say, say so
It is just a rainy day
Rainin' outside again
Now when it rains it pours
Outside open doors outdoors
Geez, would you just walk away
If you heard me say, say so
Now when it rains it pours
Outside open doors
Rainin' once more
Geez, would you just walk away
It's just a rainy day

Reason Why

I feel so cool, I feel lucky inside
I feel like my worst enimies died
The poison of the streets has crept inside my lungs
And the blood is throbbing inside my tongue
And I think that I know the reason why
And I think that I know the reason why
And I know, and I know, and I know the reason why
And I think that I know the reason why
Blood is dripping from the heart
On a picture of Jesus that I've got
Good will drips from everyone's eyes
Gosh, I feel so lucky inside
And I think that I know the reason why
And I think that I know the reason why
And I know, and I know, and I know the reason why
And I think that I know the reason why
Thorn ripped skull and blazing sand
I'm on a night beach, I just washed up on land
Big jet plane flying overhead
Inside, I feel like I'm no longer dead
And I think I know the reason why
And I think that I know the reason why
And I know, and I know, and I know the reason why
And I think that I know the reason why

Blue

It's blue, down that street
Just like people you might meet
It's true, on her face
The loneliness she can't escape
And who could ever take her place
She was a little one
Seemed like life had just begun
Found out, on the phone
Then we knew we were all alone
And all our tears wouldn't bring her home
She was a little one
Seemed like life had just begun
Found out, on the phone
Then we knew we were all alone
And all our tears wouldn't bring her home
And all our tears wouldn't bring her home
And all our tears wouldn't bring her home
And all our tears wouldn't bring her home
And all our tears wouldn't bring her home

Deep in the Ground

Three kinds of people, she just didn't care
I've got a black and yellow box filled with her hair
When she felt up to it she'd drive me around
I've been taken so high, now deep in the ground
Now deep in the ground
She said give me a lantern-sized problem and I'll shed the light on you
Tell me your nobody, I change the world for you
Now things are different, she's nowhere to be found
I've been taken so high
Now deep in the ground
Now deep in the ground
Well, I filled up my bathtub with all kinds of things
Little baby diapers and gold diamond rings
I bury the hatchet deep in our blood
No there's somebody lying in my tub
Now deep in the ground
Well, three kinds of people she just didn't care
I've got a black and yellow box filled with her hair
When she felt up to it she'd drive me around
I've been taken so high now deep in the ground
Now deep in the ground
