well he lit you up
like amber waves in his movie show
he fixed you up real good
till i don't know you anymore
from ballet class to a lap dance
straight to video
and the pool side news
was that he would be
launching you

[CHORUS:]
into every young man's
bedroom - you gave it up
on dvd and magazine -
you gave it up
a private rite of passage
you gave it up
to every boy's sweet dream
with their paper cuts

you said "he's got a
healing machine
it glows in the dark
glows in the dark:
you say "there's not a lot
of me
left anymore -
just leave it alone.
but if you're buy, and you have
the time, tell the northern
lights to keep shining - lately it seems like they're drowning"

he cold light you up
and summon every swan
or the lakeside
off to cabo san lucas
for some optical stimulus
then you started to guess
there was someone else
though his flint glass
seeing all of you
immersed in his sepia

[CHORUS]

so i went by -
cause i had the time,
and told the northern lights
to keep shining
they told me to tell you -
they're waving

on my way up north
up on the ventura
i pulled back the hood
and i was talking to you
and i knew then it would be
a life long thing
but i didn't know that we
we could break a silver lining

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you'd take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

and i ride along side
and i rode along side
you then
and i rode along side
till you lost me there
in the open road
and i rode along side
till the honey spread
itself so thin
for me to break your bread
for me to take your word
i had to steal it

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

i could pick back up
whenever i feel

down new mexico way
something about
the open road
i knew that he was
looking for some indian blood and
find a little in you find a little
in me we may be
on this road but
we're just
impostors
in this country you know
so we go along and we said
we'd fake it
feel better with
oliver stone
till i
almost smacked him -
seemed right that night and
i don't know what
takes hold
out there in the
desert cold
these guys think they must
try and just get over on us

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this
day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

and i was ridin' by
ridin' along side
for a while till you lost me
and i was ridin' by
ridin' along till you lost me
till you lost
me in
the rear
view
you lost me
i said

way up north i took my day
all in all was a pretty nice
day and i put the hood
right back where
you could taste heaven
perfectly
feel out the summer breeze
didn't know when we'd be back
and i, i don't
didn't think
we'd end up like
like this

nothing here to fear
i'm just sitting around being foolish
when there is work to be done
just a hang-up call
and the quiet breathing
of our persian
we call cajun on a wednesday

so we go from year to year
with secrets we've been keeping
though you say you're not a templar man

seems as if we're circling
for very different reasons
but one day the eagle has to land

out past the fountain a left by the station i start the day
in the usual way
then think -- well why not --
and stop for a coffee
then begin to recall things that
you say
no one's at the door
you suggest a ghost
perhaps a phantom
i agree with this in part
something is with us
i can't put my finger on
-- is thumbalina size 10 on a wednesday --
so we go you tell me
to cheer up
you suspect we're oddly even
even still
the eagle has to land
out past the fountain
pluck up the courage
and snap it's gone again
i start humming "when doves cry"
can someone help me
i think that i'm lost here
lost in a place called america

strange
thought i knew you well
thought i had read the sky
thought i had read a change
in your eyes to strange
woke up to a world
that i am not a part
except when i can play
it's stranger
after all what were you really looking for
and i wonder when will i learn
blue isn't red everybody knows this

and i wonder when will i learn
when will i learn
guess i was in
deeper than i thought i was
if i have enough love
for the both of us

"just stay"
you said "we'll build a nest"
so i left my life
tried on your friends
tried on your opinions.
so when the bridges froze
and you did not come home
i put our snowflake
under a microscope
after all what was i really looking for
and i wonder when will i learn
maybe my wish knew better than i did
and i wonder so strange now
i'm finally in
the party has begun
it's not like i can't feel you still
but strange what i will leave behind
you call me one more time
but now i must be leaving

carbon made found her at the
end of a chain "time to race"
she said "race the downhill"
behind crystalline irises
loons can drive
where the world bleeds white
just keep your eyes on her
keep
don't look away
keep your eyes on her horizon
bear claw free fall
a gunner's view black and blue
shred in ribbons of lithium
blow by blow
her mind cut in sheets
layers deep now unravelling
just keep your eyes on her.
get me neil on the line
no i can't hold
have him read "snow glass apples"
where nothing is what it seems
"little sis you must crack this"
he says to me
"you must go in again carbon
made only wants to be unmade"
blade to ice it's
double diamond time
and keep your eyes on her
on her eyes on her horizon

not sayin'
not charmed at all
not sayin'
that you weren't worth
the fall
and i was alone when
i knew it was real
down the canyon
when i knew i had come

to the line
through the dawn
to the light
to the turn
when you said

you could drive
all night
drive all night

so i let crazy
take a spin
then i let crazy
settle in
kicked off my shoes
shut reason out
he said "first let's just
unzip your religion
down"

found that i
i craved at all
saw me melt
into your
native shelter
where you carved my
name
paper tigers scare
and came

alive
through the dawn
to the light
to the turn
when you said

you could drive all night
all night
drive all night

so i let crazy
take a spin
then i let crazy
settle in
kicked off my shoes
shut reason out
he said "first let's just
unzip your religion
down"
so i let crazy
pull me in
then i let crazy
take his spin
kicked off my shoes
shut reason out
he said "first let's just unzip
your religion down"
heard that you were once
"temptation's girl"

and as soon
as you have
rearranged the mess
in your head
he will show up looking
sane
perfectly sane
if i know crazy

in our hand an old old old thread
trail of blood and amens greed
is the gift for the sons of the songs
hear this prayer of the wampum
this is the tie that will bind us

don't make me come to vegas
don't make me pull you out of his bed
i am vigilant that it will not be
you on the menu he's serving up for his friends
don't make me come to vegas
don't make me pull him out of your head
athena will attest
that it could be done
and it has been done
and i think that i am up to it
and the jacaranda tree
is telling me of the trouble you're in
just by the way
she bends remember dancing and wondering
as you were swaying
what kind of woman you'd be
"what will be will be" over my dead body
slip through your hand again and again
slip through your hand again and again
my old flame was a jester and a joker
and as healer of men, they called him the prince
prince of black jacks and of women
and of anything that's slipped into his hands
"and the ranches and the mustangs"
and the way you said "you can have all this, except for me--
you see lady luck is my mistress
and you'll have to play second to her wish"
and the jacaranda tree
is telling me it's not over yet,
just by the way
she bends "if you come breezin' through"
you said "i'll know that it's you by the taste on my lips,
bet on the deserts kiss"
i could slip through your net
"over my dead body" slip through your hand
don't make me come to vegas
hmmm

i know
you know every desperado
and sharp shooter
in the west you say
that i can't see behind
the mask of those who call themselves
the good guys
in this who take and take
"so are you with me or not you say
this time decide"
balmy days sweet sangria
she's been gone
have you seen her
señorita shyly turning away
leaving me our fading flame
yeah you think you that
what you believe in
it matters now to you and me
what you believe in i'm takin' in
i said i'm takin' in
what you believe in
it matters now to you and me
before sundown the mexicans leave san antone
the car will then drop him at the border
the breaking point
i know your people have suffered
time and time again
but what about i ask you now
the innocents on both sides
balmy days so you give me
a no window i ask you,
give me a bloodless road
tell me why does someone have to lose?

where the river cross
crosses the lake
where the words
jump off my pen
and into your pages
do you think
just like that
you can divide
this you as yours
me as mine to
before we were us
if the rain has to separate
from itself
does it say "pick out your cloud?"
pick out your cloud
if there is
a horizontal line
that runs from the map
off your body
straight through the land
shooting up
right through my heart
will this horizontal line
when asked
know how to find
where you end
where i begin
"pick out your cloud"
how light can play
and form a ring of rain
that can change bows into arrows
(i found a thrill)
who we were isn't lost
before we were us
indigo in his own
blue always knew this
if the rain
has to separate
from itself
does it say pick out your cloud

i'm not sure who's fooling who here
as i'm watching your decay
we both know you could deflate
a 7 hurricane
seems like you and your tribe
decided you'd rewrite the law
segregate the mind
from body and soul

[CHORUS:]
you give me yours
i'll give you mine
cause i can look your god
right in the eye
you give me yours
i'll give you mine
you used to look my god
right in the eye

i believe in defending
in what we once
stood for
it seems in vogue
to be a closet
misogynist homophobe

a change of course in
our direction
a dash of truth
spread thinly
like a flag
on a popstar
on a benzodiazapene

[CHORUS]

oh zion please
remove your glove
and dispel every
trace
of his spoken word
that has lodged
in my vortex

i'm not sure who's fooling who here
as i'm watching your decay
we both know you could deflate
a 7 hurricane
you could have spared
her - oh but no
messiahs need
people dying in their
name
you say "i ordered you a
pancake"
you say "i ordered you a
pancake"

from here
no lines are
drawn
from here
no lands
are owned
13,000 and holding
swallowed
in the purring
of her engines
tracking the beacon
here
"is there a signal
there
on the other side"
on the other side?
what do you mean
side of what things?
and you said
and you did
and you said
you could find me here
and you said
you would find me
even in death
and you said
and you said
you'd find me
but i can't see new york
as i'm, circling down
through white cloud
falling out
and i know
his lips are warm
but i can't seem
to find my way out
my way out i can't see.
of this hunting ground
from here crystal meth
in metres of millions
in the end all we have,
soul blueprint.
did we get lost in it
do we conduct a search
for this "from the other side"
from the other side?
what do they mean
side of what things...
and you said.
you again
it's you again
i can't see
i can't see new york
from the other side
from the other side
i hum from the other side

life lines and suicide crimes --
he found me in a state
grabbed my purse and hitched a ride
with a mrs. jesus "how you been"
i've been cruisin' a good invention
but in some ways
i don't think it gets any easier
your walking on the water
bit by far my favourite one,
but now it seems we're drowning
in a drop of water love
and even as i'm climbing up the stairs
i know there's heaven there
and then empty arms that comes
with the morning star
well, made my bed of
cut roses by understanding
that the cause
it just comes first
with my mrs. jesus
the gospel changes meaning
if you follow john or paul
and could you ever let it be
the mary of it all
and even as i'm climbing up the stairs
well, life lines and suicide crimes
there's the something every day
and there's someone always paging
my mrs. jesus
your walking on the water
so if you get the jones at the crossroad
the personals are great
if you're my way
let me love you mrs. jesus

lily is dancing
on the table
we've all been
pushed
too far
i guess on days
like this
you know who your
friends are
just another dead fag
to you that's all
just another light missing
on a long taxi ride
taxi ride

and i'm down to
your last cigarette and
this "we are one" crap
as you're invading
this thing you call
love - she smiles
way too much but
i'm glad you're
on my side, sure
i'm glad you're on
my side still

you think you deserve
a trust fund
just because you
want one
sure you talk the talk
when you need to
i fear
the whole world is
starting to
believe you
just another dead fag
to you that's all
just another light missing
in a long taxi line
taxi line

and i"m down to
your last cigarette and
this "we are one" crap
as you're invading
this thing you call
love - she smiles
way too much but
i'm glad you're
on my side, sure
i'm glad you're on
my side still

lily is dancing
on the
table
we've all been pushed
too far today
even a glamorous
bitch can be in
need
this is where you know
the honey
from the
killer bees
i'm glad you're on
my side
sure
i'm glad you're on
my side
sure
i'm glad you're on
my side still

got a long taxi ride
got a long taxi ride

you caught me lingering
in another girl's paradise
the way she paints the world --
i want that in my life emeralds,
you should know,
are renting in her meadow
with a stroke beauty lives
how could i resist you are desire
when it all is said said and done
who can love you and still be standing
there's mary calling up a storm
can i take from you and not keep taking
naked as day Gemma follows him
does it all come down
to the thing one girl fears in the night
is another girl's paradise
through twists and turns
Jasmine foxed me in her grove
arms filled with honey-bells,
st michaels sanford bloods
"you have come to discover what you want"
what i want is not to want what isn't mine
"but i am desire" when it all is said and done.
is another girl
is another girl
is another girl's paradise

if you're a thought
you will want me
to think you
and i did invite
a guest up until
you announced
you had moved in
"what do you plan to do with all your freedom?"
the new sheriff said,
quite proud of his badge
"you must admit the land is now in good hands"
yes, time will tell
that you just life your lamp

i will follow her on her path
scarlet's walk through the voilets
just tell your gods for me
all debts are off this year
they're free to leave
yes they're free to leave
leaving terra leaving terra

there was a time
when i thought
that her destiny
should've been mine
big brave nation
but instead her medicine
now forgotten
"what do you plan to do with all your stories"
the new sheriff said,
quite proud of his badge
we'll weave them through
every rocket's red glare
and huddled masses
you just lift your lamp
i will follow.
if you're a thought
you will want me
to think you
and i did and did.

in the lush virginia hills
they kept her as long as they could
cause they knew when the white brother
found white shell beads
wrapped around her skin --
a life giving river --
her body open as will his hand
and with a "goodbye" there she goes

she may betray all that she loves
and even wait for their savior to come
and in some things, maybe he'll be right
but as always the thing that he loves
he will change from her sunrise to clockwise to soul trading
still she'll lay down her body
covering him all the same

so hundreds of years go by
(the red road carved up by sharp knife)
she's a girl out working her trade
and she loses a little each day
to ghetto pimps and presidents
who try and arouse her turquoise serpents
she can't recall what they represent
and when you ask, she won't know

she will betray

oh virginia
do you remember
when the land held your hand
oh virginia
she will let you back in
oh virginia
you can't remember your name

sights and sounds
pull me back down
another year

i was here
i was here

whipping past
the reflecting pool
me and you
skipping school

and we make it up
as we go along
we make it up we
go along

you said -
you raced from langley -
pulling me underneath
a cherry blossom
canopy
-do i have-
of course i have,
beneath my raincoat,
i have your photographs.
and the sun on your
face
i'm freezing that frame

and somewhere alfie cries
and says "enjoy his every smile
you can see in the dark
through the eyes of laura mars"
how did it go so fast
you'll say
as we are looking
back
and then we'll
understand
we held gold dust
in our
hands

sights and sounds
pull me back down
another year

i was here
i was here

gaslights
glow in the street
(flickering past)
twilight held us
in her palm
as we walked along

and we make it up
as we go along
we make it up as we go along

letting names
hang in the
air
what color hair
(auburn crimson)
autumn knowingly
stared
and the day that
she came
i'm freezing that
frame
i'm freezing that frame

and somewhere alfie
smiles
and says "enjoy her
every cry
you can see in the
dark
through the eyes
of laura mars"

how did it go so
fast
you'll say as we are looking back
and then we'll understand
we held gold dust
in our
hands

in our
hands
