Nebakanezer Lyrics

Nebakanezer never knew
He left his needle outside in the rain
And it rusted through
He kept twenty-nine blackbirds
but only one flew
Spent most of his time making holes
And licking his wounds
Nebakanezer lost his wife
She took her diamond rings and was
gone before the light
She left one satin shoe and a
very dull knife
She left one satin shoe and a very dull knife

So tell us what the sorry singer might do
All of his friends complain
That they got the flu
They ain't sick in the head
They look like the living dead
And that's not cool

Black Moon Creeping Lyrics

Sleeping eyes sleep awhile
And let me get to know your language
If I believe all I see
I would hate to be around for the dawn

Sleeping eyes stay awhile
And give me some cause to rejoice
A parody of the scene
Where my three wishes were granted to me

What you got buried in your backyard?
What secret do you sleep with when the black moon come
Sleeping eyes please come clean
I'm not giving you the third degree
When you live with no man's time
Ain't it hard to find some peace of mind

Sleeping eyes don't you cry
And don't pretend this is not an ending
Your history yes it seems
Has been swept out with the leaves

Under a Mountain Lyrics

Never a heaven an age old question
Written from a cold place
I feel sour I need a shower
Or just a slap in the face
Circumstance has left romance
And a puzzle in front of me
Who knows the ending, if the truth need bending
A lie is the tool that you'll need

So I'm under a mountain
Stuck to this mattress
Perfume and valium

What makes a Sunday different from Monday
Could be a look in her eyes
In need of flattery she changes batteries
So that her light will still shine
The words she utters either flow or they stutter
They're either silly or wise
Anger with concern
But never to yearn
Only to be by your side

Lay down with number 13
Its a cold gray shame

Sloppy Drunk Lyrics

I would rather be sloppy drunk, than anything I know
I would rather be sloppy drunk, than anything I know
Give me another half a pint, boy, then you will see me go

Now I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Yes I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Now this is the reason why that I drink, I'm just trying to get along with you

I said oh, oh, bring me another half a pint
I said mmmhuh, bring me another half a pint
Well I believe I'll get drunk, boy, and then we gonna rock this joint

Well I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Yes I love that moonshine whiskey now, tell the world I do
Now this is the reason why that I drink, I'm just trying to get along with you

I said oh, oh bring me another half a pint
I said mmmhuh, bring me another half a pint
Well I believe I'll get drunk, boy, and then we gonna rock this joint

Bring On, Bring On Lyrics

What could I do different?
It makes one sober to think
In an age of illusion
It's hard to know when to stop
How could I live indifferent
Believing in time and fate
As long as I have a witness
My name is not at stake

Bring on this flowering
Bring on, Bring on
Bring on this flowering
Bring on thou words cannot describe

Would you stop to listen
The words cannot describe
It's hard waiting for heaven
May your song keep you alive

And on the day I said goodbye
My drowning tear catches a light
Like the gift of sight
The baby's eye, darkness into light
I can rest my soul and
walk in the light
I'm positively spring time
The gift of sight
The baby's eye
Darkness into light

Descending Lyrics

Have mercy baby
I'm descending again
Open your eyes
This time it's sink or it's swim
No sermons on ascending
No verdict on deceit
No selfish memorandum
No confusion for me

Curses
Curses and clues
A feast for fools
Have mercy baby
And hand me downs
It was just a few years ago
You'd hand me ups and map
Right out of town
But I would let it slide
Like mercury
Silver and quick
Poisonous and deadly
So deadly

Girl From The North Country Lyrics

Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Blackberry Lyrics

Hey Blackberry, How you taste so sweet
Hey Blackberry, tell me what you see
Tell me is it interesting
Hey Blackberry pay some attention to me

Hey Blueberry look at my bumblebee
Hey Blueberry you know he never stings
And he only hums for me

I need some L-O-V-E-N to make me happy
You got to be L-U-C-K-Y to git
With a girl like Blackberry

Hey my cherry, coming up my street
Hey my cherry, you make it hard to breathe
Look what you've done to me
Hey my cherry, be sure to keep your nose clean

Spider In The Sugar Bowl Blues Lyrics

Well I always knew you were a special girl
Immediately I recognized you
Seen you float off the floor when I spy on you
In our garden at night you let your magic down

A spider in the sugar bowl blues
A messenger that brings bad news
Has no knives, only spoons
A sweet tooth for a new coccoon

Well the time stands still when I kiss your mouth
You put dreams in my head I cannot talk about
When we lay in our bed of one million stars
And your magic comes down and holds me in its arms

A spider in the sugar bowl blues
A messenger that brings bad news
Has no forks, only spoons
A sweet tooth for a new coccoon

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

Mr. Spaceman Lyrics

Woke up this morning with light in my eyes
And then realized it was still dark outside
There was a light coming down from the sky
I don't know who or why

Must be those strangers that come every night
And saucer shaped lights make people up tight
Leave little green foot prints that glow in the dark
I hope they get home all right

CHORUS:
Hey Mr Spaceman
Won't you please take me along, I won't do anything wrong
Hey Mr Spaceman
Won't you please take me along for a ride

Woke up this morning I was feeling quite wierd
Had flies in my beer my toothpaste was smeared
Opened my windows they had written my name
Said so long we'll see you again

CHORUS

CHORUS

Good Friday Lyrics

We've been avoiding this for so long
Luxury is temporary then it's gone
I thought that we would happen
I guess I'm wrong
We'll say "hi" on the street then
We'll move along
I know this will be awkward
But not for long
Cause soon you'll have a new boy
to sing you songs

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday
On Good Friday

I'm sorry I couldn't do this yesterday
And tomorrow I am busy
And what it is I can't say
And Saturday is no good
We got a show
So it has to be Good Friday
Then it's so long

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday
On Good Friday

You, you come and go when you please
I know unfulfilled needs
I know you do too
But I, you know I didn't see things through
I didn't pay attention to you
But honey I tried

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.

She Talks 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)

Big Time Lyrics

Gonna leave the pain behind
Gonna leave the fools in line
Gonna take the magic potion
Gettin' in an old black car
Gonna take a ride so far
To the land of sun tan lotion
Gonna take it state by state
Til I hit the golden gate
Get my feet wet in the ocean

I'm still living in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Walkin on the bridge on day
Lookin out across the bay
I saw a rippling in the water
Once a big ship had passed
I borrowed a traveller's glass
And focused on the ocean's daughter
Kind of like a wave confused
Dancing in the sunset hews
She waved to me and called me over

I'm still living in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Talkin' bout a friend of mine
Talkin' bout a gold mine
Richest vein in any mountain
Talkin' bout the enemy
Inside of me
Talkin' bout that youthful fountain
Talkin' bout you and me
Talkin' bout eternity
Talkin' bout the big time

I'm still living in the dream we had,
For me it's not over...

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)
