Cursed Diamond Lyrics

I lose myself
I forget myself
Sometimes I fault myself
I might fight myself
But then I make amends

I freeze myself
Rain on myself
Ok, so I stone myself
And I might even find myself
But then again what happens if I do

So unzip my pride
Open me up wide
So I can show this to you

I want to shine for you
I want to sparkle too
Just like a diamond cursed
Well you know it don't get worse
You know that I'll save you time
Your trouble now is mine

Hold me baby
Hold me girl
And I will laugh with you
If you want me to
Roll me in your splendor
I'll envy your surrender
And show you victory

I hate myself
Doesn't everybody hate themselves
So what, I scare myself
Then I tell myself that it's all in my mind
So I let the poison go
'Cause baby I always know
It will be there for me

Sister Luck Lyrics

Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I'd take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
'Cause when you're down it just don't seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that's walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you're down

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

A flip of a coin
Might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin' but I never weep

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else's name

What a shame
(Repeat 2nd Chorus)

Smile Lyrics

I wonder why
You spend so much time
Staring at the sky
Always feeling outside

When you call, I come
When you call I come
When it's over and done
Over and done
A game nobody won
Nobody wins (I said nobody wins, no)
A song already sung
Already sung

All I want, is for you to smile
I haven't seen it in such a while
All I want is for you to smile
Even just for a little while

Feeling counter clockwise
Its too late to cry (Well its too late to cry)
One last backslide

When you call, I come
When you call I come
When its over and done
Over and done
A game nobody won
Nobody wins (I said nobody wins, no)
A song already sung
Already sung (Sing it now)

All I want, is for you to smile
I haven't seen it in such a while
All I want is for you to smile
Even just for a little while

All I want, is for you to smile
I haven't seen it in such a while
All I want is for you to smile
Even just for a little while

Downtown Money Waster Lyrics

To my low down downtown
Money waster
Your only saving grace
Is that i like to taste ya
But your flower is spoiled
Too easy to make ya
You got a .38 and your book of revelations
I got a .44 and a load of temptation

I am a rounder, like to round around
Two for one at the store on the corner
Little girl like to drink and sniffin' powders
Like the bars that stay open after hours
Like the boys that go 24-7
Too many late nights and you don't go to heaven

Hot Burrito #1 Lyrics

You may be sweet and nice
But that won't keep you warm at night
Cause I'm the one who showed you how
To do the things you're doing now
He may feel all your charms
He may hold you in his arms
But I'm the one who let you in
I was right beside you then

Once upon a time
You let me feel you deep inside
And nobody knew and nobody saw
Do you remember the way you cried
I'm your toy I'm your old boy
But I don't want no-one but you
To love me no I wouldn't lie
You know I'm that kind of guy

Hot Burrito #2 Lyrics

Yes, you loved me and you sold my clothes
I love you, but that's the way that it goes
So it goes
Yes, you know how I feel
So it goes
It just couldn't be real

And we know it's wrong
And I don't think it's gonna go on
When I come home carrying my shoes
I've been waiting to tell you some news
And you want me home all night
And you don't want another fight
But you better love
Find some love
You better love me, Jesus Christ

Yes, you loved me and you sold all my clothes
I love you, baby, but that's the way that it goes
So it goes
I guess you know how I feel
So it goes
Yes, it couldn't be real

And you want me home all night
You just don't want another fight
But you better love
Find some love
Love me baby, Jesus Christ

Garden Gate Lyrics

Brown eyed girl
Precious flower
From your slumber awake
We have come to the fateful hour
And our love cannot wait

Chorus
Meet me at the gate
At the garden gate
Meet me at the garden gate
You made a promise now don’t be late
Meet me at the garden gate

Don’t tell your mother
Don’t tell your father
We both know it’s far too late
When we fly they won’t come after
And they will know our love is great

Chorus

You are sweet as you are tender
You are wise beyond your years
You are a jewel amongst the cinders
So don’t shed a sorry tear

Better When You're Not Alone Lyrics

I love you in the worst way
The only way I know
They say the clearer the water
The more that it shows
They say the deeper the river
The stronger the love
Your eyes don't lie to me
And your smile is worth its weight in gold
This life, this life aches
And this life moans
This life is great, this life is great
And it's better when you're
Not alone, not alone

You love me in the worst way
The only way you know
They say the higher the mountain
The more love that grows
They say the stronger the wind blows
The farther we'll go
I hope you don't lie to me
There's nothing better than your touch
How many times does this happen
Two people like us meet
As I try to be humble and lay
Down at your feet

Darling Of The Underground Press Lyrics

So the story goes that you
Sold your soul for delusions of beauty and courage
While young at heart is a nice place to start
Can the truth hold all this baggage

So tell all your foes
Because my friends know
That your white flag ain't no sign for surrender
And those books that you've read have gone straight to your head
And made you the great pretender

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe once a week

So tell me how it feels it if even seems real to be the darling of the underground press
Baby please can I see some ID
I don't believe you come from a royal family

I've heard that it's good to think before you speak
Though I've heard that it's good to bathe yourself once a week
Oh I've heard that it's good to look before you cross
No one, no one will ever find you if you don't get yourself lost

Jealous Again Lyrics

Cheat the odds that made you
Brave to try to gamble at times
Well I feel like dirty laundry
Sending sickness on down the line
Tell you why

'Cause I'm jealous, jealous again
Thought it time I let you in
Yeah, I'm jealous, jealous again
Got no time, baby

Always drunk on Sunday
Try'n to feel like I'm at home
Smell the gasoline burning
Boys out feeling nervous and cold

(Repeat 1st Chorus)

Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of losing face
Stop, understand me
I ain't afraid of ever losing faith in you
Never felt like smiling
Sugar wanna' kill me yet
Find me loose lipped and laughing
Singing songs ain't got no regrets
(Repeat 1st and 2nd Chrous)

Don't you think I want to
Don't you think I would
Don't you think I'd tell you baby
If I only could
Am I acting crazy
Am I just too proud
Am I just plain lazy
Am I, Am I, Am I, ever

Hotel Illness Lyrics

Oh good heavens, baby where's my medicine?
I must have left it outside with my etiquette
The undertaker's rule of thumb
It's hard to talk with a novocaine tongue

This room smells like hotel illness
The scars I hide are now your business
I can't seem to make hair nor hide of this
No baby love is not a punishment.

Hypnotized by your rotten behavior
This week's fashion is last year's flavor
I got a head full of sermons and a mouth full of spiders
The politics of the world's greatest liar

So tell me baby is it true all those things that they say about you...

Thunderstorm 6:54 pm Lyrics

Thunderstorm 6:54
Is it me or should I lock the door
Silly it seems, afraid to answer the phone
Someone could say that I'm paranoid

Scissors and string
Soon it will be spring
What will sister bring
Conjure my black game

The daydreams couldn't keep you away
No moon grass, no sunburn
No talk of doomsday
Funny it seems, the ways of these days
Scars cover me, I start to need the pain

Scissors and string
Soon it will be spring
What will sister bring
Conjure my black game

Thunderstorm 6:54
Righteous is this rain
And love and love
Love is your sad prose
Ooh yeah, sad, sad prose

Oh The Rain Lyrics

Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Done fell on me

Don't you know
The promise is true
It was sent from heaven to you

Whole lotta rain
Lotta good loving
Right on down

Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Done fell on me

It's for you
It's for you
And your children too

It was sent
From the beloved son of God
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Done fell on me

Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Oh fell on me

Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Done fell on me

Rain on me
Then let it shine
Let it shine just one more time
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain, lotta rain
Done fell on me
Oh, the rain
Lotta rain
Done fell on me

Soul Singing Lyrics

I've been down
Cascading and blue without a sound
Now I've traded my black feathers for a crown
So feed me milk and honey lay me down
Lay me down
Look around
Show me holy places not yet found
Lets disappear and we'll hide underground
And we'll get high and we'll feel safe and sound
It comes around
Around

Chorus:
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Got my soul singing my soul singing
Soul singing got my soul singing
Come on now come on now

Home bound
Tired of tired of running town to town
Tired of my heart turned upside down
Now my life a smile and not a frown
The sound
The sound

Chorus

Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You Lyrics

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there, too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don’t need them any more
’cause tonight I’ll be staying here with you

I should have left this town this morning
But it was more than I could do
Oh, your love comes on so strong
And I’ve waited all day long
For tonight when I’ll be staying here with you

Is it really any wonder
The love that a stranger might receive
You cast your spell and I went under
I find it so difficult to leave

I can hear that whistle blowin’
I see that stationmaster, too
If there’s a poor boy on the street
Then let him have my seat
’cause tonight I’ll be staying here with you

Throw my ticket out the window
Throw my suitcase out there, too
Throw my troubles out the door
I don’t need them any more
’cause tonight I’ll be staying here with you

Exit Lyrics

Never fought with these dark clouds
Nor the handful of rain
Today my dust hit my pavement
Went overboard again

Yeah I've heard all the songs of protest
So much reason for the rage
People so blind in their conquest
They forgot the title page

So don't you pity me
Misplace my intentions
Don't, don't mistake me
This is no illusion
This is an exit

Baby I've been your trophy
Yes I've been your hole
Well I been your constellations your constitution
I've even been your parole
So if you want to beat me
Be prepared for a shock
Cause baby baby, with your crime yeah
You will find, who holds the key and who holds the lock

So don't you pity me
Call me a desert
Don't mistake me
Call me deserter
This is an exit

So don't you pity me
Don't misplace my intentions
Don't mistake me
This is no illusion
This is an exit

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Only Halfway To Everywhere Lyrics

You could be so energy
Electricity
You could be lightening
You could be anything
A masterpiece
A revolutionary
You can see what you want to see
Can you let it be?
Learn or teach

I'm only halfway to everywhere

I'm thinking positivety
Positively
This is possible
They can say right or wrong
Never hear this song
Or look you in the eye
I'm getting rid of negativity
Lose the loss in me
Call it equality
Good luck is a frame of mind
Call it humankind
And say it's destiny

A Conspiracy Lyrics

Did you ever hear
The one about last year
It was all a lie
Ain't it funny how the time flies
What we gonna do baby
What is left for us to prove
I've never stolen nothing, not a thing
Tried to stay away from this year's
Big thing
Ain't as easy as it seems
To find a mutual dream
Can you tell me wrong from right
Do you know when to freeze or take flight
Can you tell me more or less
I got to know confess

Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy
Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy

Now you got a question about your answer
Say try your adam's apple
You talk it try it bite it right
So now you want to fight? Ok
Let's step outside
I got tradition it's an addition
My definition it don't hold me back
Well what you think about that
What you don't understand
This is a very old land
Can you tell me wrong from right
Do you know when to freeze or take flight
Can you tell me more or less
I got to know confess

Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy
Don't neglect me
Come be my conspiracy

Title Song Lyrics

You know I never wanted it to be like this
I've been lost in sandstorms
Left naked by your kiss
In the face of God
Of God and his poison leaves
The way it feels right now oh yeah
I really want to believe

So then you look on me with sad black eyes
Well I heard it coming yeah
And you know I lost my smile
In a January that never ends
The gold affections of my past
Are now just rusted tin, yeah

Well I really want to see you again
I miss my lover, as my best friend
Yeah baby I , I want you right by my side
With you baby, I'd spend all my time

They said they'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
Yes, with a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
If I could be your title song

So every now and then I get sad, yes it's true
Well you've known me long enough now baby yeah, it's nothing new
Like, like, when I'm feeling bad
I feel underwater I feel blue
And you know the only thing I ask from you baby
Well, is can I swim to you, yeah

Well I really want to begin this again
Cause I miss you as my lover, I miss my best friend
Oh baby I, I just want you right by my side
Yeah cause with you girl I would spend all my time

Said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Yeah

Well baby, I, yes I want to begin this again
Well cause I miss my lover, and yes I miss my best friend
Oh baby you know I want you right by my side
Down with you baby, I'll spend all my time

We said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
A girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could only be that way
I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Well I won't be lost for long
If you could be my title song
My title song

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

Stare It Cold Lyrics

Under the weather
I never got better
Wrapped up in my disease
Mile away, she want to count my day
Look a little older in the light

Under the weather
Feelin' very heavy
Never up for no air

Sea legs start to wigglin'
And sick I'm still feelin'
Just know I never cared

Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold
Don't you want to feel it
Don't you want to stare it cold

Never thought about it
And never no questions
Seein' where I've gone wrong

No kiss made it magic
'Cause that old girl has had it
Then it's time for me to run along

Tied Up & Swallowed Lyrics

I forgot I found you tied up and swallowed
A mess with the magic and the knot
You touch my teeth and say you like the way I bite ya
Sin, skin, sounds wrong but it's not

Chorus:

Everybody says that you're such a pity
Well baby, they, they ought to know
Everybody says you're such a pity
Tell ya baby, they, they ought to know

Touched from up above and touched between your legs
But which one, baby, burns
So you've been touched so many times so many ways
Come on baby, who gets hurt

Chorus

Chorus

Make Glad Lyrics

Ballad and dagger
Amazing grace
Sons of rock bottom
Take your rightful place
Gold tooth and top hat
Ace up your sleeve
Show me your pistol so i will believe

Chorus:
Make glad
Find the beauty in the broken
Make glad
May your heart always be open
Make glad
Keep an eye out for your brother
Make glad
And i will see you in the other

Turpentine babies
With one foot in the south
Turned out the turn key
For runnin his mouth
Jump say the sheriff
Get up outta that hole
Get in line and do what your told
Chorus

Waiting Guilty Lyrics

Oh mother, tell me, have you ever cried
Shed a tear and never wondered why
Worried feeling leave a warm man dry
Restless thunder, baby, rolls across the sky

CHORUS:
Waitin guilty, baby, wanna send me home
Waitin guilty
Waitin guilty, baby, gotta send me home

So never ever wanna waste my time
See me living just abunch of lies
Hanging jury want to look my way
I ain't playin' baby you know it ain't my game

CHORUS
Waitin guilty
CHORUS (repeat)

On whoa, yea, yeah

CHORUS
Waitin guilty
CHORUS

She Talk To Angels Lyrics

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
She gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna' make everything alright

Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

(Repeat Chorus)

She don't know no lovers
None that I've ever seen
And to her that means nothing
But to me it means, means everything

(Repeat second verse)
(Repeat Chorus)

Willin' Lyrics

I been warped by the rain, driven by the snow
I'm drunk and dirty don't ya know,
and I'm still, willin'
Out on the road late at night,
Seen my pretty Alice in every head light
Alice, Dallas Alice
I've been from Tucson to
Tucumcari Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
and you show me a sign I'll be willin', to be movin'
I've been kicked by the wind, robbed by the sleet
Had my head stoved in, but I'm still on my feet and I'm still... willin'
Now I smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico
baked by the sun, every time I go to Mexico, and I'm still
And I been from Tucson to Tucumcari Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
and you show me a sign I'll be willin', to be movin'
