Too Weak To Ramble






I was a child when I left home.
I wandered blindly until I roamed.
While others have secrets I have none.
Now I’m too weak, too weak, too weak, to ramble






 Bitter the fruit
Withered the vine
Long gone the virgin who danced til she died
I’m here in the valley, hidden from light
Too weak, too weak, too weak, to ramble






Too low to get up
Too weak to try
Too drunk to stagger
Too gone to lie
I always told myself I’d make it out of here alive
But, I’m too weak, too weak, too weak, to ramble

Please Respect Our Decadence





Everybody's dying, So we send them flowers.




 

After their funerals We go out to dinner And then we try To forget about it.






We're all committing suicide, And everybody points it out to us. Is that coffee you're drinking?



 

Is that a cigarette you're smoking? Is that meat you're eating? Is that air you're breathing?




 
Have you no self respect?
No, but we're having fun
Quick, before we drop dead




 
we don't mind your great concern 
but please send flowers instead

Love and Light



What's that you say
Something by new day but how do you found this way 
And how do you get around with that sound





I'm always in the always 
Also on pressure days never quite go away 
Where do we find a place to stay 
All the empty magazines '
A lot to learn in 
From where you get and '
What feels goot to 'not necessary 
Way would you turn a blind to a one how tries let it and '




Ooh if I ask him way

The Universe Expanded



I’ll give you each love letter back
We’ll laugh before every joke is told
We’ll pose after every photograph
Has been removed from the negative





With every smile we lose a line
Watch the stars fall back into the sky
Cork the wine
Unbake a cake
Take the dog back to the RSPCA






But I don’t mind losing you this time






I’ll meet you coming backwards
I’ll meet you coming back
When the universe has expanded
Time will contract



 
You’ll come back
I’ll meet you coming backwards
Next time






We make-up start an argument
Tears crawl back into your…
I turn from a friend
Of your friend
Unintroduced
Forget your name forevermore





But I don’t mind losing you this time





I’ll meet you coming backwards…
Yes I’ll meet you coming back
But we move forwards
Into emptiness
Into the void
Into the universe






We’ll part as happy strangers
From a long friendship
That grew from
Such a love

Fall On Me





There's a problem, feathers, iron
Bargain buildings, weights and pulleys
Feathers hit the ground
Before the weight can leave the air





 

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And tell the sky, and tell the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)





There's the progress
We have found a way to talk around the problem
Building towers
Foresight isn't anything at all






Buy the sky and sell the sky
And bleed the sky and tell the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)
Fall on me




 
(Well I would keep it above but then it wouldn't be sky any more)
(So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it home)






Buy the sky and sell the sky
And lift your arms up to the sky
And ask the sky, and ask the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)

South Carolina




South Carolina where the Cypress grow
White pine and hemlock all seem to know
The tidal sweep through your southern marsh





 
The squall last night was a little harsh
Your little island lees give us shelter from the seas
Oh no, what was that, a no-ce-um attack



 
The sun is sinking awfully fast
Can we make it last




 
We can't move on by looking back
Can we make it last







South Carolina really makes a man
If The South can't do it then no one can
The morning breeze is my favorite part




Carry South Carolina deep in my heart
We'll make a family in the quiet country
You and me, in simplicity

Wait in the Dark




From out in the hall, she said
We can't go on like this anymore, not at all
So why don't you crawl into bed turn out the light and away from it all,
So what did you want me to say,
I just don't feel like that anymore, not at all,
Wait in the dark, stand in the hall,





I was afraid she'd never call,
But I want her to stay up for the whole night
And if we touch after I'm wake, you feel the mound, I never say
And I want her to stay up for the whole night,
This is it don't make me wait,
This is it don't make me wait,
This is it don't make me wait, you're saving up for tomorrow,
And I say it's too late,






This is it don't make me wait,
This is it don't make me wait,
This is it don't make me wait, you're saving up for tomorrow and I say it's
Too late,

Bittersweet Me






I move across, innocence lost
All flashing pulsar
I move across the earth in my new pattern shirt
I pass satellites





"You're so bitter," your complaint
I can't give you anything
I don't know who you're livin' for
I don't who you are anymore





I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this as bittersweet me






I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore







I move across, candy floss
I move like a tank
I move across the room with a heart full of gloom
I'm stronger than you think






Oh, my peer, your veneer
Is wearing thin and cracking
The surface informs that underneath
The underneath is lacking






I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this as bittersweet me







I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore







You move across, innocence lost
All static and desire
You're blue in the face from navel gaze
You set yourself on fire






You strip down and lay yourself out
I know you can't fake it
But are you tired and naked?
Are you tired and naked?






Yeah, I'd sooner chew my leg off
Than be trapped in this
How easy you think of all of this as bittersweet me







I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore







I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore







I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore
