1: To Sheila

Twilight fades Through blistered Avalon The sky's cruel torch On aching autobahn Into the uncertain divine We scream into the last divine You make me real You make me real Strong as I feel You make me real Sheila rides On crashing nightengale Intake eyes Leave passing vapor trails With blushing brilliance alive Because it's time to arrive You make me real You make me real Strong as I feel You make me Lately, I just can't seem to believe Discard my friends to change the scenery It meant the world to hold a bruising faith But now it's just a matter of grace A summer storm Graces all of me Highway warm Sing silent poetry And I could bring you the light And take you home into the night (You make me real) Lately, I just can't seem to believe (You make me real) Discard my friends that change the scenery (Strong as I feel) It meant the world to hold a bruising faith (You make me real) But now it's just a matter of grace

2: Ava Adore

It's you that I adore You'll always be my whore You'll be a mother to my child And a child to my heart We must never be apart We must never be apart Lovely girl, you're the beauty in my world Without you, there aren't reasons left to find And you'll pull your crooked teeth You'll be perfect just like me You'll be a lover in my bed And a gun to my head We must never be apart We must never be apart Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world Dressing coffins for the souls I've left to die Drinking mercury to the mystery Of all that you should ever seek to find In time In you I see dirty In you I count stars In you I feel so pretty In you I taste God In you I feel so hungry In you I crash cars We must never be apart Drinking mercury to the mystery Of all that you should ever seek to find Lovely girl, you're the murder in my world Dressing coffins for the souls I've left behind In time We must never be apart And you'll always be my whore 'Cause you're the one that I adore And you'll pull your crooked teeth You'll be perfect just like me In you I feel so dirty In you I crash cars In you I feel so pretty In you I taste God We must never be apart

3: Perfect

And I've known We're just like old friends We just can't pretend That lovers make amends We are reasons so unreal We can't help but feel That something has been lost But please You know you're just like me Next time I promise we'll be perfect Perfect Perfect Strangers down the line Lovers out of time Memories unwind So far, I still know who you are But now I wonder who I was Angel, you know it's not the end We'll always be good friends The letters have been sent on So please You always were so free You'll see, I promise we'll be perfect Perfect Strangers when we meet Strangers on the street Lovers walk asleep Perfect You know this has to be We always were so free We promised that we'd be Perfect Perfect

4: Daphne Descends

With the sugar sickness You spy the kidnap kid Who kids you to oblivion It's the perfect hassle For the perfumed kiss He makes you miss him more than home You love him You love him more than this You love him and you cannot, you can't resist You love him You love him for yourself You love him and no one else, no one else Past sidewalk ashes A last lover's arc You come apart to intertwine It was all so simple As you watched him move Across the darkness in your room You love him You love him for yourself You love him and no one else, no one else And the winding vines The pretty boys dive And through the pinhole stars Into the shadow wind You will lose him then On some gentle dawn This boy is here and gone You love him You love him for yourself You love him and no one, no one else You love him You love him more than this You love him and you cannot, you can't resist You love him You love him

5: Once Upon a Time

Mother, I'm tired Come surrender my son Time has ravaged on my soul No plans to leave, but still I go Falling with the leaves Falling out of sleep To the last goodbyes Who cares why? Mother, I've tried Wasting my life I haven't given up, I lie To make you so proud in my eyes Falling out of sleep Crawling over me To the last goodbyes Who cares why? Tuesday's come and gone Restless, still I drive Try to leave it all behind Falling, falling out of sleep Falling, falling with the leaves I go crawling, crawling over me Once upon a time in my life Once upon a time in my life Once upon a time in my life Once upon a time in my life I went falling I went falling Mother, I hope you know That I miss you so Time has ravaged on my soul To wipe a mother's tears grown cold

6: Tear

The lights came on fast Lost in motorcrash Gone in a flash unreal But you knew all along You laugh the light I sing the songs To watch you numb I saw you there You were on your way You held the rain And for the first time, heaven seemed insane 'Cause heaven is to blame For taking you away And do you know the way that I can Do you know the way that I can't lose? And do you know the things that I can Do you know the things that I can do? Where is your heart? Where is your heart gone to? Tear me apart Tear me apart from you You laugh the light I cry the wound In gray afternoons I saw you there You were on your way You held the rain And for the first time, heaven seemed insane For taking you away 'Cause heaven is to blame For taking you away The lights came to pass Dead opera motorcrash Gone in a flash unreal In nitrous overcast And do you know the way that I can Do you know the way that I can't lose? And do you know the things that I can Do you know the things that I can't lose? Tear me apart Tear me apart from you Where is your heart? Where is your heart run to?

7: Crestfallen

Who am I to need you when I'm down? Where are you when I need you around? Your life is not your own And all I ask you Is for another chance Another way around you To live by circumstance, once again Who am I to need you now? To ask you why, to tell you no To deserve your love and sympathy You were never meant to belong to me And you may go, but I know you won't leave Too many years built into memories Your life is not your own Who am I to need you now? To ask you why, to tell you no To deserve your love and sympathy You were never meant to belong to me Who am I to you? Along the way I lost my faith And as you were, you'll be again To mold like clay, to break like dirt To tear me up in your sympathy You were never meant to belong to me You were never meant to belong to me You were never meant to belong to me Who am I?

8: Appels + Oranjes

What if the sun refused to shine? What if the clouds refused to rain? What if the wind refused to blow? What if the seas refused to wave? What if the world refused its turn? What if the stars would hesitate? What if what is isn't true? What are you going to do? What if what is isn't you? Does that mean you've got to lose? Digging for the feel of something new What if the silence let you dream? What if the air could let you breathe? What if the words would bring you here? What if this sound could bring you peace? What if what is isn't true? What are you going to do? Digging for the feel of something new What if what is isn't you? Does that mean you've got to lose? It came from your thoughts, your dreams and visions Ripped up from your weeks and indecisions What if the sun refused to shine? What if the clouds refused to rain? What if the world refused to turn? What if the clocks would hesitate? What if what is isn't true? What are you going to do? What if what is isn't you? Does that mean you've got to lose? Digging for the feel of something new Does that mean you've got to choose The feel of something new? Does that mean you've got to lose The thoughts you cannot lose? What are you going to do?

9: Pug

Kiss and kill me sweetly Come and drive me home Drag the miles in me I am yours alone Inside where it's warm Wrap myself in you Outside where I'm torn Fight myself in two In two Into you Desire me so deeply Drain and kick me hard Whisper secrets for me Try to go too far Inside where it's warm Wrap myself in you Outside where I'm torn Fight myself in two In two Into Please don't change Please don't change at all Bring your rain Bring your rain to fall Inside where it's warm Wrap myself in you Outside where I'm torn Fight myself in two In two Into you Come and kiss me sweetly Ride the telephone Drag the miles to me I am yours alone Yours alone On the telephone Yours alone Looking for a kiss kiss Yours alone

10: The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete

Dusty screams, through doors and imaginary floors, "Why can't you miss me?" Pistol Pete removes the final breaths from her unkind, and she is shaken What does this mean, in love or in peace? With you lying next to me So faithless serene And she calls to him Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you Far out beneath the sorrow clouds Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you Let them cry out through your rusted scars Alone he roams inside the ordinary catacombs of her waiting With raven hands, she steals and staggers towards her man, still scorned by his demon Because he's undone, become the language of Disaster and love Vengeance and dust And she calls to him Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you Far out beneath the sorrow clouds Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you Let them cry out through your rusted scars Dusty screams, through doors and imaginary scenes of hurt and teardrop As he holds her down, in the cold lonely winds Together again, her inside him And she calls to him Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you Far out beneath the sorrow clouds Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you Let them cry out through your rusted scars

11: Annie-Dog

Amphetamine Annie-Dog Has her leash and a face Her velvet spleen, her shackle spine Her diamond curse, it comes with mine A vessel she, for violent I Confession arms awake Mine, mine, you were always mine Possessed by my taste And below the angel dog Combs her hair and sings her psalms The bombs go off, she doesn't notice It all goes wrong, she sets things tragic She is Venus, she is Mars She's electric, and the struggle of Upon my face we leave no trace But in her stomach mercury aged She holds the blood, she carves the knives She digs the wives in our babies Amphetamine Annie-Dog Pulls her trash and her stories From place to place, and bed to bed Gives of herself and the magnet head Another floor, another ceiling Counting stairs with double meanings Is it wrong to swallow whole? To disappear in her? To give her the priceless peace Of giving up control? We tumble out into the streets And Annie-Dog, she drags her leash Pretty face, ugly mouth Bitter bred and so released And by the no, and by the yes Annie goes if you couldn't guess A simple man, a sycophant Her elephant with the laughing call She wants clean sheets, and fresh flowers And dental shots, and the Hong Kong glue Amphetamine Annie-Dog Has her leash and a face

12: Shame

You're gonna walk on home You're gonna walk alone You're gonna see this through Don't let 'em get to you Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Love is good and love is kind Love is drunk and love is blind Love is good and love is mine Love is drunk all the time Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame You're gonna walk on home You're gonna walk alone You're gonna walk so far You're gonna wonder who you are Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shame Shame Shame Love is good and love is kind Love is good and love is blind Love is good and love is mine Love is good all the time Hello, goodbye, you know you made us cry Hello, goodbye, you know you made us cry

13: Behold! The Night Mare

I faced the fathoms in your deep Withstood the suitors' quiet siege Pulled down the heavens just to please you Appease you The wind blows, and I know I can't go on Digging roses from your grave To linger on Beyond the beyond Where the willows weep And the whirlpools sleep You'll find me The coarse tide reflects sky And the night mare rides on And the night mare rides on With a December black psalm And the night mare rides on Where I fear is lost here The wind blows, and I know All you have to do is run away And steal yourself from me Become a mystery to gaze into You're so cruel in all you do But still I believe, I believe in you So may you come with your own knives You'll never take me alive With all the force of what is true Is there nothing I can do? I can't go on Digging roses from your grave To linger on Beyond the beyond Where the willows weep And the whirlpools sleep You'll find me And the night mare rides on And the night mare rides on With a December black psalm And the night mare rides on I've faced the fathoms in your deep Withstood the suitors' quiet siege Pulled down the heavens just to please you To hold the flower I can't keep

14: For Martha

Whenever I run Whenever I run to you, lost one It's never done Just hanging on Just past has let me be Returning as if dream Shattered as belief If you have to go, don't say goodbye If you have to go, don't you cry If you have to go, I will get by Someday I'll follow you and see you on the other side But for the grace of love I'd will the meaning of Heaven from above But for the grace of love I'd will the meaning of Heaven from above Your picture out of time Left aching in my mind Shadows kept alive If you have to go, don't say goodbye If you have to go, don't you cry If you have to go, I will get by Someday I'll follow you and see you on the other side But for the grace of love I'd will the meaning of Heaven from above But for the grace of love I'd will the meaning of Heaven from above Long horses, we are born Creatures more than torn Mourning our way home

15: Blank Page

Blank page was all the rage Never meant to say anything In bed I was half-dead Tired of dreaming of rest Got dressed above the state line Looking for you at the five and dime Stop sign told me to stay at home Told me you were not alone Blank page was all the rage Never meant to hurt anyone In bed I was half-dead Tired of dreaming of rest You haven't changed You're still the same May you rise as you fall You were easy, you are forgotten You are the ways of my mistakes I catch the rainfall Through the leaking roof That you had left behind You remind me of that leak in my soul The rain falls, my friends call, leaking rain on the phone Take a day, plant some trees May they shade you from me May your children play beneath Blank page was all the rage Never meant to say anything In bed I was half-dead Tired of dreaming of rest Got dressed above the state line Looking for you at the five and dime But there I was, picking pieces up You are a ghost Of my indecision No more little girl
