I Want To Tell You About A Man

I want to tell you about a man
You won’t find him on your MTV
He doesn’t drop acid
He doesn’t even read Dick K. Phillips
He’s not a seminal member of New York’s new wave scene
He doesn’t publish a phantazine
His name is Jesus Christ
His name is Jesus Christ
Don’t make me say it twice
His name is Jesus Christ

I Could Drive Forever

Too many lines have been broken
Too many people have crumbled apart
In my hands

I should have left a long time ago
The best idea I ever had

With every mile
Another piece of me peels off
and whips down the road
all down the road

I should have left a long time ago
The best idea I ever had

With every mile
A piece […]

I Break Horses

Well, I rode out to the ocean
And the water looked like tarnished gold
I rode out on a broken horse
Who told me she’d never felt so old
She asked me if I’d feed her
And ride her now and then

No no no, no no no, no no no
I break horses
I don’t tend to them
I break horses

They seem […]

I Am Star Wars!

I am Star Wars today
I am no longer English grey

I’m New Here

No No No No
I did not become someone different
I did not want to be
But I’m new here
Will you show me around

No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
You can always tournaround
Met a woman in a bar
Told her I was hard to get to know
And near impossible to forget
She said i had an ego on me
The […]

Hole In The Heart

Anyone who’s ever had a hole in the heart
Knows how hard it is to start a new day

Anyone who’s ever had a hole in the heart
Knows how hard it is to start a new day

Anyone who’s ever had a hole in the heart

Hit The Ground Running

I had to leave the country
Though there was some nice folk there
Now I don’t know where I’m going
All I know is I’ll hit the ground running

Only cowboys and southern gentlemen
Betting women that will never mend
They ride the roads as they bend
As they bend to their dead ends

I had to leave the country
Though there was […]

Held

For the first time in my life
I let myself be held
Like a big old baby
I surrender to your charity

I lay back in the tall grass
And let the ants cover me
I let the jets fly, I’m wishing for their destruction
Born to black in a perfect blue sky

For the first time in my life
I am moving […]

Hangman Blues

Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha

Life’s a joke
A waiting game now.
A juggling of vices
Tiny tiny vices
And they don’t anchor me
To the ground
I know who the hangman is
So life’s a joke

Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha

The clocks on the wall
Creeps higher.
Save save
Restraint restraint.
It’s a joke
And I know who the hangman is

A ship in a vial
A headstone on […]
