BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES

 

Look out of the window

What's passing you by

If you really want this bad enough

You're young and good looking

With keys to the kingdom

Sooner or later

And before your very eyes

Old soul on young shoulders

How you'll look when you're older 

Time's fickle card games with you and I

You have to take your chances

The book of forgiveness

Sooner or later

And before your very eyes

 

DEFAULT

 

It slipped my mind and for a time I felt completely free

A world of trouble

Silent double

A Pawn unto a Queen

I laugh now but later's not so easy

I gotta stop

The will is strong but the flesh is weak

I guess that's it

I've made my bed and I lied in it

I'm still hanging on

A bird upon a wire

I fall between the waves

I avoid your gaze  and I turn out of phase

A Pawn unto a Queen

I laugh now but later's not so easy

I gotta stop

The will is strong but the flesh is weak

I guess that's it

I've made my bed now I lie in it

But it's eating me up

But it's eating me up

But it's eating me up

If I get free of all my snares and my nets

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INGENUE


You know like the back of your hand

You got me into this mess

So you get me out

You know like the back of your hand

Your bell jar

Collection 

Ingenue

You got me into this time

Fool's rushing in

Yeah and they know it

The seeds of dandelions you blow away

In Good time I hope and I pray

If I am not there physically

I am before you

Come what may and you know it

Fool's rushing in 

Yeah...well you know it

Who let 'em in?

Yeah...well you know it

Gone with a touch of your hand

Move through the moment

Thought it betrays

Transformation

Jackals and flame

If I knew now what I knew then

Just give me more

I hope and I pray

Mistake all you say

The seeds of dandelions you blow away

 

 

DROPPED

 

It slipped out of my hands

went deep down wandering and stumbling

I don't want to start

Don't want to stop

When I got your heart

I got your heart

It slipped down and out of my hands

And flipped out

Went wandering and stumbling

And I fell apart

I fell apart

 

 

 

UNLESS

 

Care a less

I couldn't care a less

Such a mess

I know it's useless

I couldn't care a less

While my heart keeps returning

I am lost 

I am weightless with my arms at my side

I am hope

I can break this

I am rust

I am waiting

I am here

I am weightless

I am rust

Rust!

Rust!

Rust!

Care a less

I couldn't care a less.

I know it's useless

I couldn't care a less

I know it's you

I guess I couldn't care a less

 

 

STUCK TOGETHER PIECES

 

Our stuck together pieces

The joke is I don't need this

You can hardly tell the difference

Well I know but I don't care

Grown up together pieces

Our stuck together pieces

A loada near misses

Aw shucks you got me

You can have anything that you want except the things you really want

Go back to where you came from

Go back to what you know

Our stuck together pieces

Why be rain when you could be sun?

Why tie yourself to anyone?

Why be here when you'd be somewhere else?

Well I know but I don't care

You don't get away

You don't get away so easily

Mirror mirror still the prettiest

To all points of the compass tell us where the money is

On stuck together pieces and a loada near misses

Well I don't want any trouble but my brain is in a tangle

You don't get away

You don't get away so easily.

 

JUDGE JURY AND EXECUTIONER
 

Don't worry baby, it goes right through me

I'm like the wind and my anger will disperse

Thin persecutors  

Thin twisted vespers

A horned reptile that has crawled upon the Earth

I went for my usual walk

I tell it like it is tell it like it was

Judge Jury and Executioner

And darkness follows

No tomorrow

It's all be decided 

All spiced and scented

All bouncing voices down the echo chamber

"If you come to me tonight I'll be yours for good."

I went for my usual walk

I went around the block

I just can't talk or reason with my executioner

Judge Jury and Executioner

Thin waist betrayers

Who talk in layers

I went for my usual walk

I tell like it is tell it like it was

Judge Jury and Executioner

Judge Jury and Executioner

Don't worry baby 

It goes right through me

I'm like the wind and my anger will disperse

 

 

 

 

 

REVERSE RUNNING

 

I'm reverse running

It doesn't mean anything

Hurling headlong

Why would you even ask?

I've forgotten who I am

Snakes uncoiling

Pressed up to the glass

A meaningless plaything

Reverse running

Running contrary

Ways pulling off the anyways

I'm messing up

Messing up the balance

Breaking my trajectory

All the toys in the factory

While you all lie down 

While you all lie down

I'm skipping back through the tapes

Skipping through the ad breaks

God in heaven

It makes me feel energized

All else is sanitized!

And with such joy

Running contrary ways

Pulling off the anyways

I jump back around

I'm reversing

I am reverse running

I fall under the Horse feet

All the things I shouldn't see

Animals or birds

Animals or birds

Moving in slow motion

This shit is gonna to mess me up

 

 

 

AMOK
 

 

A penny for your thoughts

My love is a swinging door

A penny for your thoughts

They try to jump me

A penny for your thoughts my love

They're spaghetti

They possess me

I'm trying to be a thought killed

They come back to bite me

A penny for your thoughts my love

They court disaster

Forget me I'm trying to be a thought killed

I'm sending out choirs of Angels

Tying round pieces of string

To Run Amok

To Run Amok

You got me back

To Run Amok

You got me

You bite me

A penny for your thoughts

That'd be fun. Like we make the official MT WTED lyrics. We can each contribute a line/edit other lines etc. we're never getting official lyrics anyways

Try figuring out Where Bluebirds Fly lyrics.   Yes, it's an actual song with words.

and Default.    Default is the one where the cliches jumped out at me.  I'd like to see the lyrics written out to reconsider.

default:

It’s eating me up (if I could free all my snares on my hands)

 

unless:

I am rust

I am waiting

I am underused???

sounds slightly nearer than "i am here"

no?

 

stp:

Why be here when you’d be somewhere else?

Well I know but I don’t care a cents

 

Amok:

Please forgive me

Let’s forget it

Not sure about "They're spaghetti"

I think the spaghetti lyric was confirmed by the lyric sheet of the deluxe LP.

To put an end to all the lyric speculation, when I get a chance tonight I'll scan the sheet I got with my vinyl and upload it. Wish it had the lyrics to Eyeballs on it though, all I can make out is:

'What the eyeballs did
You wouldn't believe
It's not like it feels
?????????????

FLEA BASS'

I think the last line is "but that's how it is"
