Lyrics


Little White Box

Keep me in my little white box
Throw some steel on my shoe
Some steel right on my shoe
But keep me in my little white box

Throw a little sand and dusty rock
I throw a little sand and dusty rock
On top of my little white box
Stuff my chops and break my locks
But keep me in my Little White Box

Meet me in the morning
When my superglue is forming
Bring along that suitcase with your lies in
Doll we won’t be itchin’
We’ll just feed ‘em to the the pigeons
Meet me when the golden sun is rising

Throw a little water on the sand
Some sunlight and water
Some good sunlight and water on that sand

See the little shoots climb through the mud
Oh I love those shoots
Those beautiful white shoots
I see them shooting through the mud

Meet me in the morning
When my superglue is forming
Bring along that suitcase with your lies in
Doll we won’t be itchin’
We’ll just feed ‘em to the the pigeons
Meet me when the golden sun is rising

Now tear those branches of that tree
I said tear those branches of that tree
I’ll make it plain and simple
Tear those goddamn branches off that tree

Better start carving up those roots
Start hammering those roots
Get hammering and bleeding
Carving up those roots right under your shoe

Meet me in the morning
When my superglue is forming
Bring along that suitcase with your lies in
Doll we won’t be itchin’
We’ll just feed ‘em to the the pigeons
Meet me when the golden sun is rising

Meet me in the morning
We won’t go if it’s boring
Rolling from the top
When we’ll be flying
We’ll go hilter skilter
As we tilt ‘em through the filter
Meet me when the golden sun is rising


Waiting For Teeth

I lie on my side
I’m just waiting right here on this shelf
It happens to be two thousand and twelve
I stare out on the room
From my dusty old tomb on the shelf
There’s only twelve that remain of my teeth
Waiting for teeth

I dreamed I was dancing in some great golden palace in Rome
The music of centuries calling to me to come home
But I don’t wanna go home
I got far too much here on my own
I wanna wait on this shelf for some teeth
Waiting for teeth

I half remember that day last November coz I cried
You cut me and clawed me with the splinters you pulled from my eyes
I said I don’t wannna know
If you wanna go just go
Look at me
Think I’m losing my teeth

All I have is right here
I need nothing outrageous just to be clear
But I envy the bristle of my comb
I drink acid from the battery of my phone
I lie on my side
I’m just sucking my gums I can’t speak
Waiting for teeth


Unto The Sun

On my knees I’m asking why
The days are rolling into one
Spread my wings into the sky
Set my course unto the sun

Gazing from my open window
Whispered words was just for fun
Cut my arm found I was bleeding
Wasting words upon the one

I looked into the future
And I saw right there my future Son
I said to him
“My name is waiting
For your time my time has come
I’ve got to go now
Places to be
Places to see
Places to make my own
I’ve got to know
I’ve got to go
I’ll see you Son when you have grown”

On my knees I’m asking why
The days are rolling into one
Spread my wings into the sky
Set my course unto the sun

Shine a light into the mirror
Move your eyes
Oh move your eyes
Shine a light into the mirror
Move your eyes
Oh move your eyes


Apple Tree

I knew a man who was ten feet tall
I knew a man who could climb up the wall
I knew a man who went down on one knee
Apple tree

I met a maid she was all up and made
With her life in her hands
Her expenses all paid
By the Lord up above
Who said she was saved
Apple tree

Oh Apple tree
You look lovely to me
Your fruit is so red
So soft and so shiny
Oh apple tree
You look lovely to me
If I shake your branches
Will you drop some for me?

All of my life I’ve worked in the garden
I work for no money
And I’ve got no children
My fingers are green
But my heart is broken
Apple Tree

As the season is turning
My hair’s changing colour to grey
As I grow old I think of my mother
She loved me I miss her
Now she’s buried under the tree

Oh Apple tree
You look lovely to me
Your fruit is so red
So soft and so shiny
Oh apple tree
You look lovely to me
If I shake your branches
Will you drop some for me?


Addiction

I been caught my some terrible addiction
Affecting my rhyme and my reason
Couldn’t tell if it’s hell or just fiction
Oh I wouldn't know
But she had eyes black as coal

Those eyes sparkled way out of season
Lost your keys in the snow, oh no
But your father was always home
And wouldn’t you know
He had eyes black as coal

I got a pain in my shoulder
It runs down through my arm
I got a pain in my shoulder now
I been shouldering too much
Shouldering too much

We travelled half way round the world to see a man
We made hundreds of these crazy plans
He cut back her petals with a knife in his hand
Like she was just a tin can
Oh I’m just a tin man

I got my head caught in a terrible spin
Bare my teeth in the driving wind
Am I sinner or am I sinned?
Oh I wouldn’t know
I got eyes black as coal

Oh I just wanted to say
That we always did things my way
Not a penny of cost did I pay
Yeah right my friend
Yeah right my son
I just wanted to know
If there was somewhere I could go
But there was nowhere I could go
There was nothing I could see
And you you’re not my friend
And you’re not my son
No I’m not your friend
And I’m not your son

I been lying with my devils and my demons
Inside I still hear myself screaming
My airway is narrow
My belly all swollen
I’m hungry like fire
Bones left in Eden

Who the hell are you?
You fly in the wind like some eagle
Your talons so tender
Your lips so seemly
I kiss them and shudder
Love-sick so easy


Heroin

This dry old world it gives me the jitters
This dry old world is a bore
In the heat of the silence
I feel my fire rising
And the smoke curls up through my floor
An’ the walls come down
An’ the roof falls down
An’ the house burns down as well
Now I’m out on the street
With my scorched burned feet
There’s nobody I can tell

It was the month of May it was Ladies Day
But there weren’t no ladies to steal
I saw a band in a bar with a singer
He looked about as old as I feel
I said I would buy him a meal
If he could help me too
But he didn’t agree with me or my money
Then he pushed his face in my food

Oh I wanted to see if I could bend over backwards
To see if I could bend in half
But my hips too tight and my legs just split
An’ I bashed my head on the bar
Oh I remember when the lights went out
As I was carried out to the car
I was having some kind of conversation then
But er, er, agh

Ah my head hurts now it’s all wrapped in a bandage
An’ I can’t see very far
I remember now I was thinking about something
Did I just bend too far?
Oh I never wanted to die you see
No I never wanted to die
But I was living a lie
Living a lie
Living a lie

Now I’m thinking about heroin
Thinking about heroin
I’m thinking about heroin
Thinking about heroin

Do it do it do it do it do it do it


Ghost Dancing

Don’t buy the lie
Don’t but the lie
That all good men must die
Don’t buy the lie
That all good men must die

Turn on the tape
Turn on the machine
An’ you’ll see what I mean
Don’t buy the lie
That all good men must die

Sweet Saturn in her starry sky
Sweet Saturn in her starry sky
She don’t buy the lie
That all good men must die

Ah but the hollow moon
The hollow moon
Won’t you tell us something soon?
Hollow moon

Shotgun in my hand
I got my map and my plan
Move out on the sand
And see the graves on the beach
Ah the graves on the beach
Out of reach
And the shoreline
The shoreline
Rises and falls

Now see the pink moon
Oh see the pink moon
Ahh the pink moon

Ghost Dancing
Crystal Palace
Wonderful World
Poison Ball

Ghost Dancing
Crystal Palace
Wonderful World
Poison Ball


Singing Bear

Oh mountain bear
Your black coat of hair
I saw you singing there
Without a care
On the mountain side
Roaming day and night
What’s on the other side?
What’s over the other side?

I spent a night in the lodge
And another with you
I spent the night on my knees
And I prayed for you
I’ll give you everything
That I ever have
I’ll give you everything
That I never lost

If I ever leave
I will tell you free
I will never hide
Or just try to steal away
I will just say
That you weren’t the one for me
Then I will go
Somehow proudly

Oh mountain bear
Your black coat of hair
Saw you singing there
Ah without a care
On the mountain side
Roaming day and night
What’s on the other side?
What’s over the other side?

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la
la la la la la
