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

Horsehead Lyrics

Horsehead got you bug eyed
Horsehead left the day for night
Horsehead ain't no dragonfly
Horsehead help you live a lie

You cannot see the hole in front of you
And I will see you down if you want me to

You are blessed with just one life
All you are is what's inside
If you take, then step aside
Jesus gave until he died

Horsehead feel your soul fall
Horsehead gonna take a dive
Horsehead ain't no good at all
Horsehead said you're gonna die

Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution Lyrics

Caught a rusty engine out of sawdust town
Made a deal with the man who shook 'em all down
So put a little grease on my axle now
I've been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag
So let's take it easy to avoid any snags

CHORUS:

Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see the solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee
So let's keep on runnin'
Through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
And don't you want to see the ship
Go down with me

I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor
Gonna run you ragged til you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same

Chorus

I've been restless, baby
I'm feeling wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Save me child
Save me child

Chorus

Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down with me?
Said don't you wanna the ship go down?

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...

Comin' Home Lyrics

Been out on the road 'bout six months too long.
I want you so bad, I can hardly stand it.
I'm so tired and I'm all alone.
We'll soon be together and that's it
I'm comin' home to your love.

Hitchhiking on the turnpike all day long.
Nobody seemed to notice, they just pass me on by.
To keep from going crazy, I got to sing my song.
Got a whole lot of loving and baby that's why
I'm comin' home to your love.

Coming home.
Coming home.
Coming home.
Coming home.

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

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

Girl From A Pawnshop Lyrics

With pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
She sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, well should she leave town
To play the role of lover expatriate
A nod to the waiter, always her flirty behavior
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter
From a bag under her sweater
And before she reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number
I never lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
We'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter
One tear falls like a feather
And disappears on the bar room floor
The gratuity included
You know the letter concluded
P.S. with all my love

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

I said P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love

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.

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

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

Bewildered Lyrics

I know I never took the time to try and learn the things
That make you come and go
Heaven knows, I'm feeling it now
All those days that came and went
All those evenings spent
With holocaust and disillusion
Acknowledge me this wink
Upon your calendar I think
Marks the day of our disaster
Misplaced affections, misread equations
And the blessing of love

When you see the curses in me
The crime of your rouses
And we can call it infidelity
Or my love of your bruises

You scrawled your family's name upon the moon
The very same night that
They toasted your splendor
The theory dear is not to fear
Oh can you tell me please, what of creation
Now this tragedy surrounding me
Has taken a turn for the worse
And borders on fascination
To call a spade a spade
In regards to shade
And all those who enter

So when you see the curses in me
And the crime of your rouses
Well now we can call it infidelity
Or my love of your bruises

My heart waits here, bewildered
A wilderness
My convictions' arrangement with vanity
With my vanity, with my vanity

To duplicate this soiled fate
For better or for worse, now or later
Answer me, answer me
This question mark you live and breathe
Only give to me
My belief, my belief in enigma
Yes it does

But when you see the curses in me
The crime of your rouses
We can call it infidelity
Or my love of your bruises

My heart waits here, bewildered
A wilderness
My convictions' arrangement with vanity
My heart waits here bewildered
A wilderness
My convictions' arrangement with vanity
With my vanity, my vanity

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

Hard To Handle Lyrics

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on you
You gotta' come back for more

(Chorus)

Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now

Yes I am

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man of great experience
I know you've got another man
But I can love you better than him

Take my hand don't be afraid
I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free
So you can place your ad with me

(Chorus)

Boys come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothing but ten cent lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am

(Repeat Verse 1)

Wounded Bird Lyrics

Off the tracks
Lost the rail
Trying to squeeze a little blood
Out a rusty nail
When your thirsty
Thirsty

Behind your eyes
You feel the burn
As your downhill ride takes a
Solemn turn for the lonely
Lonely

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

It's like you spent a long time
In an empty bed
In an empty room
With an empty head
Full of nothing
Nothing

Now all you got left
Is the skin of your teeth
And the red in your eye
Six feet deep
To get ready

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

The waiting is over
So let's roll in the clover
Time for a head full of stars
Let's pull back the curtain
Only one thing's for certain
Well, we don't have very long

Now don't look back, my wounded bird
There's nothing for you here
Need no wings
Just set your mind to fly

Set your mind to fly

God's Got It Lyrics

If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
If you need it, God's got it
God's got everything you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's money, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
Well, if it's a friend, God's got it
He's got everything that you need
He's got everything a poor boy needs

Can't You Hear Me Knocking Lyrics

Yeah, you got satin shoes
Yeah, you got plastic boots
Y'all got cocaine eyes
Yeah, you got speed freak jive

Can't you hear me knockin' on your window
Can't you hear me knockin' on your door
Can't you hear me knockin' down the dirty street

Help me baby, I ain't no stranger
Help me baby, I ain't no stranger
Help me baby, I ain't no stranger

Can't you hear me knockin' while you're safe asleep
Can't you hear me knockin' down the gas light street
Can't you hear me knockin' throw me down the keys
Allright now

Hear me ringing big bells toll
Hear me singing soft and low
I've been begging on my knees
I've been kickin'
Help me please
Hear me prowlin
I'm gonna take you down
Hear me growlin', yeah
I've got fight in me
Now, now, now hear me howlin'
I'm all around your street now
Hear me knockin' all around your town
