Man Woman Life Death Infinity

Another Century

[rev. Oct. 13, 2017]

I gotta light a candle for you
So you can see yourself in the dark
I gotta get a handle on you (so you can see yourself)
And the hand will leave a mark

I gotta get directions off you (can you see yourself)
The mirror flare could be anywhere

The night is a liar
Overthrow the tyrant
Overthrow the tyrant

And in the fading light I saw
When you asked yourself
Why has this happened to me
Once or twice (once or twice)

Something nice might have come of it

I gotta fight a battle for you
Dial it back another century
Another night I'd settle for you (you can see yourself)
Every morning and everywhere

Today is a liar
Undergo the silence
Undergo the silence

And in the fading light I saw
When you asked yourself
Why has this happened to me
Once or twice

In the fading night I heard
When they shoot themselves
How did this happen to me
Once or twice (once or twice)

Something nice might have come of it
Something nice might have come of it

I gotta light a candle for you
So you can see yourself...

 

Submarine

It's all about love
It's all about love
It's all about love
It's all about love

Submarine the city
Sydney city of lizards
City in a jungle
City in a desert

(No matter what you say)
A desert swallows a forest
A glacier in your valley
Valley in the ocean
Desert in a sea

Nature loves a winner
We gonna end up some creature's dinner
Devil loves a sinner
You were on the menu
You're just a beginner
(So scared of love)

Submarine the monster
Shudders in its mansion
Ugly in its city
Ugly in its beauty
An ocean swallows the island
Takes us squares and guard us
Takes us city and mansions
Takes her devil and monster

 

For King Knife

[rev. Oct. 12, 2017]

A song for king knife
Along the lines of the vine of life
A new song for the king
The king of nearly everything
The king
The king
The king

A dog and a unicycle
A thimble and a thrush, no rush
The show will start without you

A pony and a clown
A ticket to the dance, no chance
The show will start without you

A crown for queen spoon
A lovely eiderdown, been too soon
A new crown for the queen
The queen I've nearly never seen
The queen
The queen
The queen

A wicked little mannikin
A squirrel and a bird, I heard
The show will start without you

A window in a tree
A flourish and a feather forever
The show will start without you
And the show will start without you
Yes the show will start without you

 

Undersea

[rev. Oct. 13, 2017]

Fly makes a honey man bee sorta
Sky makes the money man flee sorta
Lie makes a funny man plead and slaughter

Crack makes a low boy ache faster
Flack makes a slow boy shake faster
Slack makes a show boy fake his master

Fly makes a honey man bee sorta
Sly makes a honey man bee sorta
Why makes a honey man bee sorta
(I can see the water)

You are the bee, the best of the bunch
And they laugh out loud at this stupid little lunch
Comin' closer following a hunch (find you're out there)
Undersea

(Fly makes a honey man
Fly makes a honey man bee
Fly makes a honey man)

Fly makes a honey man bee sorta
Sky makes a money man flee sorta
Lie makes a funny man plead and slaughter
(I can see the water)

Crack makes a low boy ache faster
Flack makes a slow boy shake faster
Slack makes a show boy fake his master
(Its effect disaster)

You wanna take the rest of the stuff
Well everybody said we can never get enough
Comin' closer, a blind man's bluff
That's rough, I can tell you it's rough
(...best you might bee)

You want all your love off the cuff (slow boy, low boy)
Comin' closer, puff by puff
Undersea (undersea)

(Fly makes a honey man bee sorta
Fly makes a honey man bee)

Fly makes a honey man bee sorta
Fly makes a honey man bee

Fly makes a honey man bee sorta (fly makes a honey man)
Fly makes a honey man bee (fly makes a honey man)

Fly makes a honey man
Fly

 

Before The Deluge

[rev. Oct. 13, 2017]

Well you never really had a choice
Fall in line now your mind's full up stuck
Life is a distraction in a dream
Bundle of bees follow the breeze

Lost love
They found you now
Round 'em up
You got me now

Well I never really had a clue
My hands are full of sandals
Feet so tender bare
Stumble in a cyclone of drones
They're watching everything we cannot see

Shanghai
You turn me on
Oceania
You got me now

Something
Something so huge
Before the deluge
No refuge
Something

Something in the wild reeking of despair
Some grand gesture gone and test your scant resolve
Recontextualizing sex
Your accidental rehab in a lab

Century
Century of roll
Brasilia
Oh you got me now

Twilight falls so cold into the aching rooms
Sign of love now is alive on grooves
Life is a sequence in a routine
New test tube baby can be in tears upon the tracks

Baby, oh America
Bad hit you got me now

Something
Something so huge
Before the deluge
No refuge

Something
Something so huge
Before the deluge
No refuge

 

I Don't Know How I Don't Know Why

[rev. Oct. 10, 2017]

Voyage begins with a single sail
Weave through the heaving sea
Even as the city leaves me

I don't know how I don't know why

Pale glare deceiving
Jail bird sings such a sad song
Even as the city leaves me

I gotta choose sometime
I gotta lose sometime
I don't know how I don't know why
I don't know how I don't know why

I step into the shade where the fading loom
I get a bit delayed in the waiting room
I get a bit unmade on a mushroom
I get a bit abraded in your jaded tomb

I gotta choose sometime
I gotta lose sometime
I gotta choose sometime
I don't know how I don't know why
I don't know how I don't know why
I don't know how I don't know why
I don't know how I don't know why
I don't know how I don't know why

 

A Face In A Film

[rev. Oct. 13, 2017]

Crocodiles and allegations
Scale of your intrigue
Never mind my palpitations
It's like the League of Nations

Snakes and laddered stockings
Are ripping in the sea
Never mind the boat is rocking
Sequences unlocking

Sing but seldom seen the sun of salvation
New moon of celebration in your sky
A face in a film I saw
To whom you bore a strange similarity
I walk before you like a door

Monsters and mirages
A minaret, a coronet
Like a motor when it charges
Gotta pay for all the surges
Silhouettes and sentimental
A figure in the surf
Oh the time is tempermental
All our lives are not attained

Sing but seldom seen the sun of salvation
New moon of celebration in your sky
A face in a film I saw
To whom you bore a strange similarity
I walk before you like a door

 

In Your Fog

[rev. Oct. 13, 2017]

Soul unto soul
Until everybody know
All the lost souls went below
When you see her say hello
Greed unto greed
Until everybody feed

Exhaust a mustang
You burn down a boulevard painted new
When suddenly bang!
You take your last look
You read your last book
You're unobtainable in your fog
Unashame-able like a dog

Greed into greed
Until everybody feed
Meek will be a seed
Need to succeed
Soul unto soul
Until everybody know

And youth must go
You shake from the battle when your bottle is lean
And when you gone
You do the fast bit
You have your last hit

It is delusional
The unreal deal
I'm confused enough
Like an eel

Holy water
Fill me with euphoria
Holy water
Fill me with euphoria

It tastes delusional
The unreal deal
I'm confused enough
Like an eel

You take your last look
You read your last book
You're unobtainable in your fog
Unashame-able like a dog

 

Something Out There Is Wrong

Oh no
All the little rivers and the shivers go
Blow me down
Look, see
All the little devils and their hooks in me
Wake me up
Shake me down

When the stars align
A line appears so fine
When the stars align

Oh boy
All the little singers that we will enjoy
Turn my head
Then we
Take a little trip to like Italy
With its heel
What you feel

When the stars align
A line appears so fine
When the stars align

Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong

Oh yeah
Rush right in we just don't care
Careless fools
Dumb luck
All the little gigabytes what the fuck
What the hell
Who can tell

So hard
Sold my little soul now by the yard
Hardly a star
Pick a card

Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong
Something out there is wrong

 

Dark Waltz

[rev. Oct. 22, 2017]

When you penetrate the empty sound of the rain with all your being
Said you never knew such rapture could stop your tiny eyes from seeing (when I wasn't there)

When you turn out for fun but someone's playing a part that someone else is reading (when I wasn't there)
Down hotel corridor room 44 before your harm [heart?] was bleeding

Oh, all over it
Feels like never again
When you penetrate the empty sound of the rain
(When I wasn't...)

When you orchestrate a breakout through the emerging surge of bleak ideas (when I wasn't there)
And overhead the camera's idiot gaze, it just blinks and leers (when I wasn't there)
When you apprehend the weekend that just ended has been gone for years (when I wasn't there)

Oh, all over it
Feels like never again
When you penetrate the empty sound of the rain

When you live and die and laugh and cry all in the space of a second (when I wasn't there)
When you hit the subtotal on your bill and still it was all so much more than you reckoned (when I wasn't there)
When you stumble on the path of tears don't crumble now that future has beckoned

Oh, all over it
Feels like never again

Oh, all over it
Feels like never again
When you penetrate the empty sound

Oh, all over it
Feels like never again
When you penetrate the empty sound of the rain

Oh, all over it
Feels like never again
When you penetrate the empty sound of the rain
(When I wasn't there) [repeated to end]
