Lyrics: We tried it alone And alone the days go with another You smash down your phone You change, you change, you change your lover. For the first to die alone Will die alone And then you wait there for me. For the first to die alone Will die And then you wait there for me. These streets are oh so sorry They never knew the grey in the grey-stone These trees are all so sorry The never knew you're gone but you get one. The feeling's gone It’s gone away To each their own and And their own, and their own And you switch one The feeling is gone It’s gone away To each their own And you switch one advenio ad inferas, prisco quae parentum more atque in perpetum mihi frater ave atque vale advenio ad inferas, prisco quae parentum more atque in perpetum mihi frater ave atque vale advenio ad inferas, prisco quae parentum more atque in perpetum mihi frater ave atque vale You’re not alone You’re not alone You’re not alone You’re not alone We die alone you change, you change We die alone you change, you change We die alone you change, you change We die alone you change, And you wait there for me.

Lyrics: The orchid tells a wicked tale With every flower that she blooms The jailhouse eats from a bitter pan A cup of water and a plastic spoon While Augustus sits with his favorite son Going on and on about the fates and lore While we trip on the fates at sunrise, Bring good fortune to your door. Chorus Aupres de ma blonde, Qu’il fait bon Fait bon, fait bon, fait bon Aupres de ma blonde, Qu’il fait bon Qu’il fait bon dormir, Aupres de ma blonde Qu’il fait bon, Bon dormi The men will work in the wood today While the women will cut the earth The good girl says with a gleam in her eye, "You always get what you deserve" "Push," said the man in his finest chair With his ale made out of rain, "If not for my wife I would be all right." But the Goddess is not to blame. Chorus When I’m around my love Life is good and I sleep good Gone forever to the weeds that stood And resist the stone in the understory Devoured by floods, the grips of gold Return to the wicked and the walls of stone And I have often stayed around you and your kind Chorus Bon dormir x4 Aupres de ma blonde, Qu’il fait bon x2

Lyrics: We'll make believe in Love. We don’t believe in This place, which you speak of Because it’s not big enough for us We’ll wake and stand up dreaming Big enough for us, we'll wake up And make believe in love. The opera stays open for us The smells of sweet perfume Are not sweet enough for us We’ll set our watches back an hour Just to lengthen out the day The fountain’s overflowing All our wishes they went away But this is not enough We make believe in love Success, you crooked, crazy fool. Success, you’re cool but you're not enough Airplanes may fall from the sky Champagne makes us wonder If we laugh or if we cry out But we whisper while we’re falling Say exactly what we mean. Cause we all know a whisper Is just a quiet plea But this is still not enough. We make believe in love x 5 We make believe

Love to the wicked and the barbers hold Lost and you’re rotten but your cards are folded As far as I can see you are alright But the new sound record is a 45 The new sound record is a 45 You’re no good dead so you stay alive With your goddamn wreckage and your attitude Here’s your soul and your preppy shoes Yes and I prefer the plans we had Chorus: It'll tear your eyes It'll tear your lies It'll tear your eyes It'll tear your eyes out. The grocer speaks with menaced eyes. The country weeps while I’m alright. You take another chance on the slot machine. You break another heart but your hands are clean. I stepped off this ferris wheel, Threw a coin to the worker just make the deal. Yes I took the lead of the freak parade Without another word I could make you stay. Yes and I prefer the plans we had Chorus Yes and I know life gets lonesome for a go. Yes and I know life gets wild that’s for sure. When all you ever want to do is f*@% But there’s so much more to love. There’s so much more to love. Chorus No good dead you stay alive you're lost and rotten cards are folded I know life gets wild, wild you're no good dead, you tear your eyes out.

In my past life I was a terrible woman One filled with lust and desire But behind these eyes I’m a terrible woman Turn around and set the bank on fire. Daddy said to me, "girl, you’re a terrible soul" He said it, looked me straight in the eye. "If you stay out of trouble in this terrible world, It’ll be a miracle if you ever die." In my past life I was a terrible woman One filled with lust and desire Yeah but behind these eyes I’m a terrible woman Turn around and set the bank on fire. So I called the telephone operator and I got his number It was then up to me to sharpen up my knife. Well he came home after playing his horn Was up to me to cut him free from his life. Molotov cocktails I’ll drink those for dessert But I wash them down with bullets and nails I’ll spit you out and go home for breakfast Looks like I found my way out of hell. In my past life I was a terrible woman One filled with lust and desire But behind these eyes I’m a terrible woman Turn around and set the bank on fire. Turn around and set the bank on fire.

I heard about California Heard about the fall Heard about the objects and the peppermint Kissed every face I saw When she walks, she walks on the danger sea By the pyres and the monuments And that’s what’s become us on the western breeze And that’s just what she meant. Chorus: I love your girl like she were my very own I love your girl like she were my very own When she walks, She walks on a danger sea By the pyres and the monuments I love your girl like she were my very own You got there first and I agree The streets were filled with old roads and then so you’d see While I'll adjust the ballast and a twisted arm You write the chatter and line up the storm All these foolish things And you turn the other way Loose dreams and as you say Diversions from the stage Chorus And she walks the danger sea So long and so it seems And I kill for the best of me And I kill as I please And the three lines are our lines The three lines are our lines These are our lives These are our dreams And it’s so And it's so.

Back up Everybody wants some Everybody needs some So come on push back Girl scouts marching through the valley Picking up the thin mints Walking through the alley Fred Astaire Flying on the high life Trippin’ on the really real He’s got some soul He’s got my soul He put it in the hole No wait that’s my pocket Turn the key and unlock it A scrumptious little chocolate I want to go to China Learn a little Kung Fu Work on the claw Work on my claw Drive to California Stay in a motel Cut a little bonsai Cut a little tree Johnny gave a black eye Fight like Miagi Love like a Machio Love like a Machio Push back, push back Momma didn’t raise no quitters Tripping on macadam A monkey in the city What’s he doing out there? You hook up an organ grinder You think it’s like butter You put on the leather Push back, push back push back, push back

In the village of St. George In the curfewed streets It’s easy to meet one Meet the girl of your dreams But there she may shoulder A burden beyond you And so she leaves The gifts from the drug store The ones you need The ticket with 134 The idiot seed Well we’ve got plenty of money To spend on these robes and rings With no offering Seems like age old Green and great hope For the jury For this earthless jury But in this longing grows A supple and brilliant dose Of what we need In the village of St George In the curfewed streets It’s easy to meet one Meet the girl of your dreams And there she may shoulder A burden beyond you And so she leaves
