Hands

 

who will build a new sky

when everything dies

who will build new sets of eyes

when everyone loses sight

 

who will care for you when

nobody cares at all

who will slide into this room

and tear down the walls

 

I don’t know if you can

pray with your hands

chopped off, chopped off

no you won’t ever leave

with your feet

chopped off. chopped off

 

my love, my love

 

who will bite your tongue

when you’ve lost your teeth

and who will oblige you when

they realize you’re a freak

 

who will get born over and over

and over and over again

who will cherish all your faults

and follow you to the end

 

I don’t know if you can

pray with your hands

chopped off, chopped off

we’ve got loads of creeps

leaving you with your dreams

chopped off, chopped off

 

my love, my love…

 

 

Flipside

 

it’s in your blood

all the fun

when we got hit

we never got up

I found the road

to hell

and it was down

the wishing well

 

not so good at time travelling

your hip is still stuck in the wall

 

if you’re gonna change your mind

catch you on the flipside

will I ever get my baby home?

will I ever get my baby home?

catch you on the flipside

 

I cut a hole in you

cause oh my it was getting late

that’s how I got to know you

and that’s how I chased you away

 

we ain’t no walk in the park

we would’ve raised our kids with the lights off

 

if you’re gonna change your mind…

if you’re gonna change your mind…

 

 

The Road To Blacking Out

 

you hold your breath

it’s what you do best

gutters of your flesh

in a sleepy crater

 

afraid of heights

and of modern life

the greatest fear

just standing there

 

always on the run

and nothing to run from

a body howling

at the air it’s tied to

and then you laughed

at nothing at all

 

you find ways out

but it won't last

you think backwards

but you fear the past

 

always lurking for love

more than you could ever dream of

you need it to be different now

don’t you cry over spilt blood

 

always on the run…

 

your voice has got

a thousand hairy legs

there’s a dying goldfish

in your mouth

on the road

to blacking out

on the road

to blacking out

 

 

Freaks

 

a place in the sun

you told me a wicked lie

run run girl run

and our love dies

 

I hate your love

I hate your love

drips like spiders from above

and I just can’t get enough

 

a coffin of time

a couple of freaks and a crime

you trip, trip on me

over my dead body

 

I hate your love…

 

I know I can’t

but I would like to

breathe in your hair

I know I can’t

but I would like to

breathe in your hair

 

I know I would like to

I know I would like to

fuck

 

evil son

evil son

evil son

evil son

 

 

We’re Almost Here

(dedicated to Ling Ly)

 

how can we feel this bad?

how can we feel this bad?

seen a light with roots so black

oh we got a bunch of folks

and we got a bunch of places

oh we got a bunch of crap

 

I can find you blindfold

I can put my needs on hold

I can be your worst fear

oh my god the end is near

oh my god the end is near

but hey, we're almost here

 

what is it you’re on about?

and why so tense?

what is it you’re on about?

you don’t make sense

 

oh my god the end is near…

 

 

Angel Flesh


see how my baby passes by

see her face crack open the sky

I wait for you

in the underground

 

child of the night

you shine way too bright

worn out bones

wrapped in angel flesh

this is the sound

of being a mess

 

see how my baby walks away

see her make me shake

I need you now

in the underground

 

I want your body

and I want your soul

I want it now, and then

I’ll cry for more

 

child of the night…

 

child of the night…

 

this is the sound

of angel flesh

 

now it’s over

now it’s over

now it’s over

now it’s over

 

 

Blood

 

leeches of the dark

you want a ride with all of them

fight your shakes with

another drink

blown out of your mind

and your body bent

yeah demons are a gal’s

best friend

 

I'm not cynical, just tired of it all

but I was giving, I was giving

you hope

I'm no synagogue, I just keep messin' up

but I will follow, I will follow

you home

 

nanananananana

nananana hey…

 

I see all their names

when I look at your face

not too stylish

and not that tough

you keep bleeding

through the shirt of life

in the back

of a truck

 

I'm not cynical, just tired of it all…

 

nanananananana

nananana hey…

 

we ran out of pure thoughts

we ran out of drugs

we ran out of body parts

we ran out of blood

 

I'm not cynical, just tired of it all…

 

blood running in

blood running out

blood running in

blood running out…

 

 

Caves

 

why so scared of me

why so washed up

why so tempted to leave

why so alone

 

why serve all those pricks

why pull out your hair

why pull all those tricks

and not blame yourself

 

trust me

we’re not talking ’bout a good old phase

believe me

honey just go and take it away

because you never will die

because you never will die

 

why throw it all away

and make it seem like it’s easy

why bother waking up

without you my love

 

the trees have gone insane

on a roll, some time ago

we crawl back into our caves

our bodies out of control

our bodies out of control

 

trust me…

 

because you never will die

because you never will die

because you never will die

because you never will die

 

 

Dream No Evil

 

you lose your head

every time you go to bed

I’ll care for you

even when you’re awake

 

I will never

let you down

I’ll fold my guts

and make you a crown

 

hey now

is it getting better?

hey now

is it getting better?

 

I found you

digging your own grave

you’ve got a red sky

under your nails

 

one of these days

nothing will happen

can’t wait to set fire to

a new beginning

 

hey now

is it getting better?

hey now

is it getting better?

 

dream no evil

dream no evil…

 

will you hold my hand

into our promised land?

la-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da

it’s only you and me

in your evil dream

la-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da

I will find you now

yeah I will find you now

la-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da

la-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da-dee-da…
