I'm dirty as a man hole cover
I'm lookin for my long lost lover
She turned me out and now I'm sinkin'
I'm just so easily led when the little head does the thinkin'

I'm talking with a tight red sweater
I'm feelin' like Eddie Vedder
Only twice as cool when she starts winkin'
I'm just so easily led when the little head does the thinkin'

I'm loyal as a dog but I'm a hog for that sexual attraction
It starts up in my mind and makes a bee line below the belt
No consequences just satisfaction

Baby in my heart I'm faithful
This two headed monster is so distasteful
Forgive me when my instincts start stinkin'
I'm just so easily led when the little head does the thinkin'
I'm just so easily led when the little head does the thinkin'
Think about it...

Forgive me if my instincts start stinkin'
I'm just so easily led when the little head does the thinkin'

Well, those electric sheep to the valley they keep walkin
On the radio waves selling tennis shoes and beer
It induces sleep when that DJ starts his squawkin'
I'm lookin' for one song to save me on this midnight clear

CHORUS:
So how far do we have to go to hear that Pirate Radio?
One song that could steal our hearts
Before they turn into silver and gold
Well I'm drivin' my car real slow and my baby wants to know
When we gonna hear our song on that Pirate Radio?

One star in the sky so I named it Otis Redding
Or maybe Marvin Gaye lookin' for his Tammi Terrell
There ain't no mountain high enough to stop this wedding
Rollin' out of Memphis to Detroit I can hear those bells

REPEAT CHORUS

Well, we've been drivin' all night, ever since we were teenagers,
Up to that border town where the outlaw station air waves
Where the DJ's outta sight and his heart is so courageous
And he loves every song that he's puttin' on for the free and brave

REPEAT CHORUS


. . .



My sweet girl with you eyes so bright
Don't leave me in the dark tonight
The sun's turned down, the moon is low
And I know secrets you don't know

Do you hear the wind whispering
"You're the one I love"
The summer breeze tells the trees
I'm the one, because
You're my sweet girl

Hold me now in this sweet life
I will take you for my wife
We can walk the aisle in this city park
And I will offer you my heart

Married by a firefly
They're coming back, you know
And I'm the man who knows he can
Provide an afterglow
For you, my sweet girl
Cause you're my sweet girl

Do, do, do....

My sweet girl, do you know you are
My lovely dream, my little star
In a blanket made of earth and sky
Curled up with my sweetie pie

The love we make, it merely takes
Our breath out of the air
We kiss and then we breath again
The wind blows through your hair
It's whispering, "You're my sweet girl"
Can you hear it? It's saying, "You're my sweet girl"
You're my sweet girl

Do, do, do...


. . .



I thought I had to curl up from my head down to my toes
But heaven knows that I was wrong, I'm feeling again
Holding my breath and holed up in this cheap motel, I feel like hell
I'm holding my own heart, I'm feeling again

When I get that feeling like a bass drum
Pounding til my head is numb
Electric onion peeling within
I got that feeling again

(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again

And all those nights just kill a billion brain cells
Now I'm swelling up inside with teeth and nails, I'm feeling again
From the bottoms up I put the top down on this town
And drove it around till I passed out, I'm feeling again

When I get that feeling like a bass drum
Pounding til my head is numb
Electric onion peeling within
I got that feeling again

(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again

Morning comes like Catholic guilt, wilted lettuce from
The family farm on false alarms, I'm feeling again
Holding on to fear and lust and hate, now it's too late
To spin the wheel, it's drink or feel, I'm feeling again

When I get that feeling like a bass drum
Pounding til my head is numb
Electric onion peeling within
I got that feeling again

(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again
(I got that) Feeling again

I used to stumble up to your door
Three thousand kisses on the living room floor
But we don't do that kind of thing anymore
Cause we both graduated

We used to talk until the morning light
Bout everything we did and did not like
Now it's all double blinds and downsized appetites
Cause we both graduated

Yeah we both graduated
And we learned, we learned, we learned to be strong
Now the power's gone
And we turned, we turned, turned out to be wrong
Now we both graduated
Now we both graduated
Now we both graduated

I liked feeling in the dark for you
We watched Apocalypse Now and The Heart of Darkness, too
Melted down barriers and cleaned up the goo
Now we both graduated

No amount of college is gonna give you that jolt
The top of the pyramid is holding all our volts
It's not high technology, it's just nuts and bolts
And we both graduated
Yeah we both graduated

And we learned, we learned, we learned to be strong
Now the power's gone
And we turned, we turned, turned out to be wrong
And we both graduated
Yeah we both graduated

Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na
Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na
Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na

Now as we step out in this frozen world
The amazing Mr Snowjob and his Cryogenic Girl
Living out history but dead to the world
Cause we both graduated
Yeah we both graduated

Na na, na nanana, nana nanana na...

You told me you'd hold me
Now I know better
All you did fold me honey
Like a dear John letter
You put me in a box
With God and his uncle
Like a pair of gym socks
Lookin' like Artie Garfunkle

You took my heart
The check's in the mail
We'll do lunch when you get out of jail

Sure Pinocchio
Anything you say
Sure Pinocchio
Have it your own way

You took me for a ride
Well, I'm crawling out of this gutter
You hurt me down inside
What was that you muttered
Somethin' bout wishing on a star
for a fish out of water
Well, I know who you are
Your Gepetto's wicked daughter

This hurts you more that it hurts me
You never inhale, yeah, and cops eat free

Sure Pinocchio

Anything you say
Sure Pinocchio
Have it your own way

Sure Pinocchio
What hurts me makes you stronger
Sure Pinocchio
That nose keeps gettin' longer and longer

You took my heart
The check's in the mail
We'll do lunch when you get out of jail

Sure Pinocchio
Anything you say
Sure Pinocchio
Have it your own way

Sure Pinocchio
Anything you say
Sure Pinocchio
That nose keeps gettin' longer and longer

On the outside, a beautiful thing
On the inside, a bird with a broken wing
Chances taken, now the dark angels circle in the wind
You're mistaken, but still you'll do it all again

As he shakes his fist, somethin' dribbles down his chin
Can you live like this
Just crawlin' underneath their skin

CHORUS:
Better run...runaway, there is no reason to stay
Run...runaway
Better run...runaway, fast as these words that I say
Run...runaway

From the ashes you will rise
Distant crashes in your eyes
Though he's made you into an image of his pain
Cut and shaved you
Like a prisoner on a train
There are broken limbs
And tangled power lines
No songs like hymns
No flowers in the springtime

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

I found your heart on Valentine's Day
I tore it apart, with all I do, with all I say

Just run....

Better run....runaway
There is no reason to stay
Run...runaway
You just run...runaway
Fast as these words that I say
Run...runaway
Better run....runaway
There is no reason to stay
Run...runaway
Better run...runaway
Fast as these words that I say
Run...runaway

She was a woman sawed in half
It was done by a bad magician
There was a point at which she just had to laugh
You could appreciate her position

Her legs in one way, and her head another
She just kept thinking about walking away
They tried to put her back together underneath the cover
But her heart kept getting in, getting in the way

She was a woman sawed in half
Lets cut to the chase, love, this was showtime
And he was sweating bullets, and walking on glass
Somewhere between the evening news and tomorrow's headline
(Buzz awhile..)

She was a woman sawed in half
It was done by a bad magician
Yeah, it was a clear cut thing, no, you didn't have to ask
She was gonna have to make her own decisions

Her legs got up and walked away, and her head came rolling
Oh, the room was painted black night, and turning dayglow
She wound up in two places at once, her heart was swollen
He played his musical saw in the streets of San Diego

Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya

She was a woman sawed in half, her legs in Tijuana
She was a bodyless head and trapeze artist in a circus in Bombay
Now a woman's gonna do exactly what a woman's gonna

Yeah, some bad magicians wouldn't have it any other way
She holds on to that trapeze by the skin of her teeth, or so they say

REPEAT VERSE

Broken love out on the highway
I thought I knew you like the back of my hand
Pick him up, he's just a ghost from the old days
That's just about as far as we go from here
That's just about as far as we go

He wants a ride out of Montana
Back to the girl with the West in her eyes
Before the wagons rolled out of Indiana
That's just about as far as we go from here
That's just about as far as we go
That's just about as far as we go from here
That's just about as far as we go

And you and I know
That this road don't go back there anymore
Just let him rest
He's the best of you and me
Just let him be

I never knew so much time was passing
And who'd have thought we'd be haunted by dreams
Dreams of love so true and everlasting
That's just about as far as we go from here
That's just about as far as we go
That's just about as far as we go from here
That's just about as far as we go


. . .



After all this time
I'm glad your loving me
'Cause after all this time
So many disagree
To turn off the lights
Or pull down the shade
Don't be afraid
After all this time

And after all this time
I'm glad that you can see
After all this time
And I'm the man I want to be
Strong as your love
Free as the wind
Each day we begin
After all this time

After all this time
You love someone
And love's becoming you
Face the sun
Everyday is new

After all this time
I'm glad I'm loving you
After all this time
We are the only two
Here in this world
A love that time forgot
But darlin' we will not
After all this time
(repeat)
