8:28

You're in and out and about, At best you act suspicious, I can accept if you don't love me, Please pretend for my sanity, Just make it through this season, I can't give you any reason, You can say that I don't really know you, But we both know that's a lie Lo...

A letter to a friend

I want you to know as you lie in that bed, That I miss you more than any word that I've said, And it meant more to me to touch your forehead, Than all the talking I was feeling useless so I had to write it down, You dreamt of the fields back in my old home to...

A well earned reputation

I take the PATH to the city, The other three take the chance to sleep, Lack of the same and I feel shitty, My commute turns to a creep, I walk in crowds on dirty streets, Lack of sleep and swear it burns my eyes, That's when I get that certain feeling, Culture...

About the she

My room with girls on the TV, They cry, I don't know what it means, I know that I'm too far away, I know that I'm too far away, I know that I'm too far away, I know that I'm too far away Another song about the she, The one who doesn't live with me, I wish tha...

Accentuated nothing

Everybody has a question, If not an adoring letter, If not words of disappointment, I'm being blackmailed with integrity, I read every word, I cannot respond, Letters come from every land, I've got nowhere to run, I watch my words, Feel like I'm walking on egg...

All girl band

I never meant to simplify or even understand, I was in the back row, Just trying to watch the band, Oblivious to currents in performance and opinion, I guess we all thought they would be proud of the distinction Maybe I was a pathetic fan, You don't care and...

Alone when she dies

If I could have any expectation, And looked back a generation, What would be the case? My Grandmother died with the mind of a child, All she did was smile and couldn't recognize my face It's sad but nothing more, I didn't feel better than the time I did befor...

Analysis, yes, very nice

It's simplistic presentation, Your caustic realization, Motivation in TV screens, Vanguards built deliberately, Feminization on every sex, Stop, go back, re-read the test, Feminization on every sex, You're the anti-Oedipus Who's remapping moral highways, New...

Anybody

She's an anybody, She'll be anybody's anything, She says "Anything with anyone Must surely be OK." She says she wants to have a good time, I'm somehow skeptical, Her leopard print winter coat, Is buttoned up for war She talks like Julie Christie, Implied sex...

As I lie

As I lie here crushed beneath the wheels of a MUNI bus, The commuters all around me crane their necks to see, By the looks on their faces I must be a disgrace, I can see my bike down the block/ I can see my bike, It's down the block, I can see my bike, It's d...

Asha blake

I never sleep, which is no surprise, And I don't need to justify why I like to see the sunrise A voice is very close to me, It happened quite unconsciously, Now I watch the news religiously Something about the hair, Something about the far-off stare, Makes m...

Asshole

Your brains went black, When she took back her love, And put it out into the sun, The birds did fly, When the heavens all went dry, And the cigarettes were smoking by themselves She'll do anything, She'll do anything, She'll do anything, To make you feel like...

At the cannery

Words are flying at me at the speed of sound, But the machines are too loud for me to hear, He's trying hard to demonstrate something, What it is isn't totally clear, Six months and it's six A.M., I've got a lot of things to ask myself, Is it really worth the...

At the crossroads of hell

A story told in six parts, Ronin with a baby cart, When you stand at the crossroads of hell, There's no need to tell, Sleep is just a state of mind, We are dying all the time, Long ago a choice was made to live for the grave Everything is quiet out in the cou...

Ayn rand is dead

Ayn Rand is dead, So put down your pen, A whole new generation, Who pointlessly defend, Ayn Rand is dead, And I can not pretend, To embrace a greed, Of unnatural stipend An individual's individual, So scared that you've turned cynical, An individual's individ...

Back to hawaii

All of my friends tell me that they wanna visit Hawaii, It must seem pretty beautiful there away from smoggy city air, But the last time I went home a sorrow drifted through my soul, The things I had hoped to see had all changed pretty drastically, I don't wan...

Band you love to hate

Backstage passes for the both of you, Again, what does it mean to you, You think you're writing wrongs with your old typewriter, But you haven't got a clue, Six weeks in and I wish I was out, I'm missing my amenities, In a foreign land doing all I can, Calling...

Best served cold

Roads and roads of countryside, With someone left behind, I get another letter, It's meant to remind, "Every day you seem to change", You don't know what you're saying, "Every day you seem to change", You can't begin to imagine Every word never published, I w...

Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills, Century City, Everything's so nice and pretty All the people look the same, Don't they know they're fucking lame? Here she comes in her stupid suit, Leather pants and her combat boots Man, I don't know what I'm gonna do, I just don't know what...

Birthday

I thought it was your turn to feel alone, But I knew I was wrong when I hung up the phone, You've got Mom?s eyes and so do I, Evident in every tone So I write another letter, But it all adds up to nothing, Today is your birthday, Have a happy birthday, There?...

Blister

Broken Bacchanalian blisters, It's a long way back to the city, Drunk on gin and valley heat, And feeling fuckin' shitty, Looking back to Shangri-La, It's like a brothel on the border, Steady hands can't take a shot, Clean up this disorder And the ocean seems...

Bomb

Sweat drips down his face as he walks into the place, That he walks by every single day, He's only 21, but when his job is done, Never again will he walk this way He leaves his bag underneath the seat, He breaths new air back on city streets, He knows love gr...

Bottom rung

Me, I'm part of the machine, The bottom rung of the company, The only time I start to worry, Is when the machine becomes part of me Me and my self esteem..., I'd like to go back to sleep, But even my dreams these days, Have work related scenes Friday night I...

Case number

I can fill out a million forms, I can stand in lines and lines and lines, I could fill out a million more, If only I had more time I can tell that you're looking at me, You can tell that I'm a slob, I know you're not very efficient, I know you're just doing y...

Chemicals

She's coming over, I can smell the chemicals from here, I just had to get away, And my resistance, Is I don't need it to exist, I should just give it away Dry your eyes, your true deceit is known, These things you call yourself are really things that you own,...

Christmas lights

Christmas lights are colorful, A mini-disco, a pistolero, Lost in lonely heartache, It's literal this time, I'm counting up to half a million, I used to know all of the presidents, By name and order of appearance, In attics in my mind Traipsing down memory la...

Church on fire

I'd recognize that song anywhere, Equal parts of hope and despair, You can't believe, But it's history, You can't decide, You can't pick sides, no He's been drinking all day, He drinks it away, I guess it's okay, it's okay, He's drinking today, He can't get a...

Cigarettes kill

She had an idea, It got her the fear, And she loved her mother very much, One cigarette, Well she knew she was dead, The way dad walked out of the room An ancient soul for a twelve year old, She acted quick and decisive, Before her mother came home she left t...

Cilantro

And he wanted to see the U.S. too, But there was nothing I could do, It left a taste in my mouth, A taste reminding me of south 

City by the bay

Trivial anger is our fetishized notion, We're a quick bus ride from the ocean, The city's cynicism manifests itself in greed, Every bus stop lies down in defeat Everyone's running away to the city by the bay, If you can't make it here you might as well jump o...

Closing time in an early town

Every day she takes the bus downtown, It's what she has to do, To keep her mind steady, She's always ready for something new, Even though she may not want to go, She lacks the ability to say "no", She's absolutely confident, That every word you tell her is tot...

Colonial Hong Kong

Prince Charles and his troops sail away today, No flags and no colony 4,000 Chinese troops waiting at the border, They'll carry out the order Peter Jennings is coming live, Live on my TV, I'm feeling moved though I don't wanna be, Though I don't wanna be, It...

Colors lie

All of my dreams end in the drain, I'm walking outside in the pouring rain, Colors flash, colors lie, Cars all pass me by, The more you decipher and understand, Reality is a gun in your hand, Is it pointing at the bank or pointing at your head? Don't you want...

Commodity

Everything in life becomes commodity, Close your eyes and look to the east, Capital is our only reality, A cancer growing in the belly of the beast Intentions, no matter what they be, Only act as oil in the machine, Only help to increase productivity, Misery...

Concede

I was feeling old today, I know there comes a point, When there's nothing left to say, Lately everything sounds the same, The things I hate in this fucking world, Haven't gone away Tomorrow, if I haven't lost my mind, I'll beg and borrow all the words I can't...

Contempt for modesty

I can sit counting, counting every minute, Life slowly unravels, Supernatural torture, Knowing you were leaving I savored the unweaving, If you really stay in touch it'll be a first, She said "Sit down, be calm, be cool, Don't let your thinking get the best of...

Crazy lady on market street

She had turned 15, She ran away from home to see the dream On her second night, She met a man who had nothing to hide, But turned her around to work the streets at night Introspected, infected, Self-conscious and projected, No tomorrow, no today, Can there b...

Creep

When you were here before, Couldn't look you in the eye, You're just like an angel, Your skin makes me cry, You float like a feather, In a beautiful world, And I wish I was special, You're so fuckin' special But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo, What the hell am I d...

Crop circles

Crop circles spell out your name, It's not pure and true, But it's love, Is that good enough? Good enough to justify me and you, I've read the Guardian, read the Weekly, Looking for stupid clues, I guess I may not be good enough, But I'm not looking for the tr...

Cut the shit

Cut the shit. You know it's just a part of life, Fuck that shit. It was your choice to sacrifice, Don't do it because you can You are innocent in criminal times, But you're not into it. Why do you even try? Go do it while you can I can see the hypocrisies, W...

Desperation every other night

The lights change to a steady blink, My poisoned mind make me stop and think, It's not a feeling deep inside of me, Just a cover to survive my misery Sad news has taken flight, Desperation every other night The wind's a needle jabbing in my vein, Gravity is...

Diet coke

With perfect prose and a broken nose, He beats the early morning streets, He's not a king or anything and he's felt like this for weeks, The rain has come again and it doesn't mean a thing, Everyone's mouth is moving but they don't say a thing, I spent last ni...

Disappear

No, I didn't want to hear it, But the words came from her mouth so slowly, I saw her face change, She wanted none of that sympathy, You can say what you will, But I know she has suffered enough, And I don't know victims, Only survivors surviving your touch I...

Disposed to femininity

You are part of a trinity, Disposed to femininity, In some ways disposed to insanity, Defying logic in sanity, Cold as the rain above, A superseding love, Like a hand in glove, A superficial love Inside the plastic case, Outlined in barcode, Your voice compre...

Don't bring me down

You got me runnin', goin' out of my mind, You got me thinkin' that I'm wastin' my time, Don't bring me down, No, no, no, no, no, I'll tell you once more before I get up and go, Don't bring me down You're always talkin' 'bout your crazy nights, One of these da...

Dora and Lili

Idle hands for the idle rich, The men think she's a bitch, She's a twin to one belief, For now she is a thief, She smiles and laughs and you want more, But she thinks you're a bore, Hungary is where Hungarians live, A country Shakespeare invented The stars sp...

Drinking down

Drinking down and standing back up, It falls into the sequence, She took me from pool hall to party to party, Clear thinking would not have made a difference, Now I knew I should have gone home, And I know that I could not have gone home, She's a sister and hi...

Earthquake song

An all-too sunny day, Fuckin' dogs gone crazy, I'll drown them out with my shitty walkman In the park I thought I had it made, Break my bones in the aftershock, Stand in line for bad handouts, Watch it from a big screen TV back at home 

Empty soda can

OK, you've said enough, You know I got the message, Now you're just trying to make me feel like shit, "You motherfucker", "You can't leave now", She was slurring vodka and tonics This is very serious, And I can't concentrate, I get distracted by commercials o...

Everybody laughs

Every face was different, It was the same blood still on every page, In the caption was written: "The bank after a visit from the R.Z." Three dead in a cell, Stammheim in his lonely cell, Walls never fell, Stammheim and his lonely hell Everybody laughs, Stup...

Fascist radio

Here is my contribution, To your fascist radio, fascist radio show, Here is my one solution, Smash your radio receiver on the floor You say you have all the answers, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know We have expectations, T...

Favorite phrase

Everything moves so fast, Now where was it I saw you last? It must have been [...?] or at the show, You looked at me with sad, sad eyes, And it always takes me by surprise, You're asking me things I just don't know Well I wanna go back today, [...?] chocolate...

Faye wong

Down in the financial zone, The steam comes from beneath the pavement, High on stress or high on speed, Nobody wants to know, Broken vending machine and yellow paint, Smells like nothing and smells like plastic chemicals, Nobody wants to know, no Elevator is...

Girl that's in a magazine, Do you know what you're doing? You told me that you were free, Do you know what you're doing? This is not a jealous song, Do you know what you're doing? But how long can you prolong? You told me that you were free, You couldn't be h...

Good judge of character

She never leaves the neighborhood, She's a good judge of character, I see her once in a while when I go by the uptown, She says "Take care baby, take care baby, take care baby", And I say "Doesn't it get cold out here? Doesn't it get cold out here? Doesn't it...

Had it right

Harvest

Did I see you down in a young girl's town, With your mother in so much pain? I was almost there at the top of the stairs, With her screamin' in the rain Did she wake you up to tell you that, It was only a change of plan? Dream up, dream up, let me fill your c...

Hate so real

I never knew them personally, It was 1959, My mom was only 12 years old when he ran out of time, On a trail to damnation (or climax some folks say), The trail of Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate I can't say I'm sorry for the things I know I've done,...

High

I was so high I couldn't come down, She said with my mother's voice, "There's no need to be afraid" I'm not even sure why we even went out, The sun was so hot, It feels like just another day, It feels like just... I don't mean to sound paranoid, But the cop...

I have to admit

I have to admit it is going to be hard, It's already harder than I expected, I woke up this morning next to nothing, Arms holding nothing I won't try to stop you, I won't try to stop you, And because I still want you, I can't be friends with you I won't show...

I reach for her hand

Saturday night, and it starts with a fight, A fifth of gin and a bag of ice, I know she is angry; she has every right, "You fucking motherfucker" a thousand times, "Did you fuck her in this room?" But I'm out of words; I am empty, I reach for her hand but it's...

I will savor this

I feel dirty with the clothes I have on, I feel dirty on the Reeperbahn, I'm walking through, I walk away, Time to lose on the motorway (motorway) An affection that I don't understand, You're looking like a lost gringo, man (understand), The board is burning...

I would for you

If I die, I don't care about heaven, I just wanna know, would you visit my tombstone? I would for you, I would for you, I would for you, I would for you If I die would you even notice? Would you bring a date to the funeral service? I would for you, I would fo...

I've got, I've got, I've got, I've got a crazy feeling, I need more time in Auckland, New Zealand, Does he know he's just Eno? Every wall has paint that's peeling, It's so late to be getting rain, My mind was already on the plane, Everyone at Flying Nun helped...

If i'm lonely

I'm sick of the television, Nothing is on, It doesn't mean indecision, I'm sick of my stereo, I'm sick of my CDs, I wish someone would throw them all away If I see you then I would know it's true, If I'm lonely then it's only because I've got nothing better t...

If we wait

There's some food upon the table, boys, And if you should ever see me crying, Then you'd know that I am weak, And you are free to take me downstairs, Away from cares I'll be with you in the morning, boys, 'Cause you know that if we wait for our time, We'll al...

In vain

Carolina and Nicole are two of the best of friends, Walking home at 7:30 past five drunk Hispanic men, No sense even in listening when you've heard it all before, There's no sense in convincing when to them you?re always the white whore She said, "It wasn't a...

Indignation

She's not a bitch, she's not a slut, But she says she is both, That was a statement but it's just her indignation, She wants a band to be the antithesis of everything, Secretly revealing what's appealing to me She can play drums which was once good enough for...

Ivy league college

L.A.

Leni riefenstahl's tinder box

Lines

You told me that you hated lines, Hate being told what to do, You can bitch and you can whine, But whose idea was the cue? And I know it's just my opinion, The lines are in my mind, They lead me to my indecision, So what are you gonna do, When the same applie...

Lost in a silent stare

I feel like a pogue or just a step below, No alcohol in this examination, Am I eating or just repeating? The essence lost in a bad translation I'm not here, I'm not there, I won't say a word about your history, These classifications are just fascinations, You...

Marge schott

All the faces are dressed up in blue, And there's not a lot I can do, Conspiracy, 1973, At the age of 32, All the dreams I had, all the visions that I had up until then, Turned into dust and the anonymity that comes with them Inside there is silver and gold,...

Mariachi bands

Jesus was a guy that I met at El Tin Tan about a year and a half ago, Drinking shots and shooting pool, 'Cause in the Men's Room they were doing lines of coke He worked too hard for his wage, 'Til two he turned into a rage, 'Til two he'd laugh about his life,...

Marie Provost

Mary's moving out

Mary's moving out today, I can't say that I blame her, How could she survive in the house of ageing and self-loathing? Mary's moving out today and Chuck is gonna help her, It's not as if I won't see either of them again Just another in a series, In a series o...

Misery

Again, tonight I went to a bar with a friend, Again, totally drunk holding on to this pen, I see the whole world and its staring back at me, Sitting here in misery, wondering what is wrong with me Today, I'm so bored I think I'll sleep my life away, Today, ap...

Mr Backrub

He was the biggest sleaze in the office, Years later he'd be known as Mr. Backrub, He'd melt you with his mini-pony tail and goatee, And kill you with his "in touch with my feelings" gaze He makes me sick, He gives me creeps, I hope he stays away from me, fro...

My favorite place

Floyd calls me on the phone, And I usually don't mind if he won't leave me alone, But today has been a busy day if there is such a thing anyway, My cats look bored, They're hunting down flies on the kitchen floor, The neighborhood isn't my favourite place any...

My lie

Now it's good-bye, Not much to declare, This good-bye, It's all mine The feelings you find, Were from a better time, Affectionate memories, I keep in my mind So now good-bye, It's my lie, This good-bye, It's my lie 

Never happy

She is never happy with the weather, I don't know why I try to understand, She acts as if it's always getting better, And dresses in accordance with her plan, She always ends up soaking with the shivers, She looks at me with nothing in her eyes, She says "Why...

You're staring at your watch, You're staring at your watch again, You're staring at your watch, You're staring at your watch again You're staring at your watch, It's one of your neurotic habits, Like back at the party, So sick of psycho sychophantics You're...

New dreams broken

Tonight the lights are bright over the cityscape, I'm miles away from where the skies are gray, It's wider than a postcard, More than I could hope for, I no longer want to live in the U.S.A. Parish brings the cup to his lips, Hot liquid burns, It's what he ne...

New year

I'm hoping that this new year, Is better than the last one..., 'Cause me and my loneliness, Could sure use a divorce Not that it's any fault of my own, Not that I've ever stood fast and hard, Check in, now start, You hurry up and wait, I've read every magazin...

New York times book review

Grady's Bar is no saloon, Drinking on a Monday afternoon, The air has its unique pungent smell, Unique to the Seneca Hotel, I close my windows every night, But nothing can keep out the light, It nags me awake, It keeps me pinned right in my place, It keeps me...

Night time

The night time is the right time for you to leave that old wheelchair behind, The night time is the only time you don't feel I'm staring at your lifeless legs, You never read my books, You said they were written with a poison pen, But everything that?s old is...

No jazz

At close proximity, we fire mortar rounds of intellect, Our spheres of influence are drowning in the subtext, A spontaneity despite your education, A new simplicity free from intimidation, You are the specialist and I'm the antonym, You don't need a PhD to see...

No Surprise

I can't sleep, A tidal wave of stress is overwhelming me, When I finally clear my head, It's only when I feel the world is dead, And back at school, I never was tough and I never was cool, I said "A tough girl is what I need in my life", You laughed and said:...

Nostalgic for nothing

What's left behind..., A room that is big and undefined, A dying light, I lie awake alone at night, And I don't care, I know that life cannot be fair, I know that life cannot be fair I feel nostalgic for nothing, I am the pawn, I am the king This is it, Can'...

Nothing worth knowing

Smiling newscaster, She reports the tragedy, We must share the same secret joke, Or aren't we laughing at the same thing? Public feigning outrage, But these are caustic times, The only honest outrage, Is yet to be outlined, Is yet to be outlined, Is yet to be...

November

As the rain falls hard it fills the cracks on Mission Street, There's a hole in my shoe and it?s letting water soak my feet, I don't know why I curse the sky because it won't stop the rain, I don't know who I'm yelling to because it won't stop the rain As the...

Now you realize

Now you realize that she's never coming back, You finally come to terms with that very simple fact, Now you've reached the point where you can think of her, Without any anger or without wanting to cry Tonight for dinner, You eat in the kitchen, You feel like...

Nowhere

The dirt in the air is some atmosphere, The sun hangs low, There's nowhere like here, School is out and we pile in the car, Get away from everyday, but never too far You are, you are, you are everything, In this town that kills anything, You are, you are, you...

On dying alone

I'm shaping shy shame into words, I'm tongue tied, left mouth dried and absurd, I know I can't drink it away You couldn't have been anyone, If I could choose from anyone..., I'm painting lime in shades of gray If I believed then I would pray that things woul...

Open road

This is no Vietnam, A battleground mechanical of sexuality, This is a haunted house, Ghosts of our dead fathers walk the halls here eternally When all your bankrupt dreams die somewhere in space, Tell me that you?re satisfied, You blink whenever you lie, When...

Over compensation

What the hell is she trying to prove, She can claim it's unintentional, What the hell is she trying to prove, She's on television all the motherfuckin' time She thinks it's just a game, It's all show and tell, She thinks it's just a game, It's all show and te...

Panama

The Captain is crying at the helm, While the crew sits and laughs, His daughter is staring at the moon, It's over at last The passengers don't say a word, Old folks act like they hadn't heard, Newlyweds in grey drink to the past For a man, a plan, a canal, P...

Parkas and flags

Hey, does the sound just grate? Hey, well it's a bit too late, The mods look like Vulcans in parkas and flags, The mods look like Vulcans in expensive rags, The mods look like Vulcans and I don't want to look like that Talking 'bout my generation, Talking 'bo...

Part of the problem

Burn down the buildings, riot in the streets, Just stay out of my neighbourhood, Carry your banners in your protest march, But I don't feel it does any good I might agree with everything that you do, But if I'm part of the problem, Then you're part of the pro...

Parts unknown

When counting houses on my street, The architecture ain?t so unique, The walls crawl and the windows creep, Don't lie, they tell no stories I?m dying underneath the light, I?m trying to get out despite the gravity of the home town team killing me You can be...

Picture this

The sound is coming through the trees, And we stand paralyzed, The corporate godhead demands a sacrifice, And it's a present day danger, We're a human plantation, More like a human rainforest, Ghetto deforestation Picture this, Picture lines, Picture lines an...

Planet earth

Only came outside to watch the nightfall with the rain, I heard you making patterns rhyme, Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound, You'll see I'm right some other time Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life, Voices, another sound, can you...

Empty glasses made of plastic, So unlikely and fantastic, I might cruise in coffee houses, I'm returning naked glances But if the mediocre [vision ...] you boring, You start a conversation on American short stories Don't even, don't even tell me, (Don't tell...

Priest

The priest waits for the train, He leaves today, He says "How could I have been so wrong for so long", He lights his last cigarette, He quits today, What better way to leave than turning a new leaf "Tell your mom I'm coming home, Tell your mom I'm coming home...

Quickstep

Pond Scum Plum is as cool as they come, And he's swinging from the chandeliers, He doesn't even care about his girlfriend's affair, As long as he can spend the night drinking by the pier, He laughs and says "Love ruins everything", But he doesn't really mean i...

Racked

This morning I was racked by an all consuming feeling of regret, Vague memories of tragedies, Dionysian polemics, Emphasized by my splitting headache This forgettable day..., That I have thrown away, The booze and you are here with me, You're in my mouth, you...

Radical chic

Radical chic, it's your mystique, Your so-called movement will be dead in a week, Lesbian chic, Thelma And Louise, It's all so simple on the big screen I want to believe, As much as you want to believe, We'd like our reality in bite-sized pieces Radical chic...

Reaching for thoreau

Rich and young and dumb

You're telling me that it's guaranteed, You're the next big number one, You may be right but there's a pretty good chance you're wrong, You're telling me how it's supposed to be, Yeah, your boys have got it all, I can only hope that I'm still around when you f...

Rock'n roll museum

There's no reason to feel down, Just because the Rock'N'Roll museum is in your town, there's no reason to feel down, Just take a book of matches, burn it to the ground, Our night has ended while others have begun, We sleep on floors and we speak in tongues A...

Rockville

Looking at your watch a third time waiting in the station for a bus, Going to a place that's far, so far away and if that's not enough, Going where nobody says hello, they don't talk to anybody they don't know, You'll wind up in some factory, spend all your ti...

Sacrifice

She said she wouldn't sacrifice a life constructed on passion, A red device, To say she could be traded or bought, I know that it's a bankrupt thought, I know, The fetish that controls your mind has come too easy to define She said she wouldn't give herself a...

It was not her first film, But she starts to wonder why, A brand new co-star, Who looks just like Susan Sarandon, At first so clever, At first so clever, She'll turn you on alone at night, This time it's different, She starts to wonder why She's making movies...

Santa Cruz

Secrets

Last night I saw your skin go red, From your smelly little feet to the top of your head, Why do I feel so ashamed? I know, I know, I know, I know You read old letters written to me, I found an ancient lyric sheet, It felt like reading my diary from 1983 It's...

Seventeen

She's so mean

She is the girl that creates her own world, What makes you think that it's the right idea? Her perfunctory glance still feels like random chance, It's a plan to make her words seem more sincere The TV's on, So I won't get to sleep tonight, Her come on, It's n...

Simple gesture

No domination, Just exploitation, You don't need total control, When you use us all I'm waking up in the noontime sun, The late night show is not for everyone A simple gesture molds the future, No creation, Missing passions Got caught in the rain again late...

Sleep

Someone is sleeping on my street, I step over them because I need my coffee, Someone is playing in the hall, I hope they don?t grow up at all, And burn my house down I don't think I ever sleep, There are too many things I need, I don't think I ever sleep, The...

Smell it rot

Rock and roll is history, It?s like reading in a library, It?s got little or nothing to do, nothing to do with me Rock and roll is as cold as clay, It?s time to take the corpse away, Smell it rot on a hot, hot, hot, hot, hot summer day It?s all right, it?s a...

Smoke in my face

Star hotel

If nobody remembers the Star Hotel, And its sad, lurid ghosts, It's probably just as well, Thinking through the stinking is not thinking a lot, Reach into your jeans and see what you've got Tuesday night is just alright, I'm nauseous but I'm happy, Tuesday ni...

Star of the show

Ignoring the messages on your machine, Even your name is sounding obscene, It's all I can do to keep to myself, When I set next to you Deep in the Valley I feel afraid, We look like junkies in a raid, We hate the MOCA, we hate "art", We'll be apart An empty...
