Dallas

Everybody ends up in Dallas
Everybody looks the same
Everybody ends up in Dallas
Nobody knows your name
Ain't got a whole
Lot of rainfall
But we got a lot of snakes
Everybody ends up in Dallas
Nobody wants to stay

Creatures in the heart of the city
Eatin up the edge of town
Nobody knows where they came from
And nobody wants them around
Got an itch in yer skull
It backs ya up to the wall
Rollin em round the bend
Everybody ends up in Dallas
Smokin em ten times ten

I'm a gonna call a you baby
I'm a gonna show you around
Strap yourself into my backseat
I'm gonna drive you all over town
I thought that I heard
That ya think we're absurd
Draggin our feet in the dirt
Everybody ends up in Dallas
Hold still and this won't hurt

Everything here is bigger my dear
They'll suck you up in the scene
Everything here is bigger my dear
Nobody knows what it means

Everybody ends up in Dallas
Everybody looks the same
Everybody end up in Dallas
Nobody knows your name
Ain't got a whole
Lot of rainfall
But we got a lot of snakes
Everybody ends up in Dallas

Nobody wants to stay

A Lazy Habanera













I hear in the southern parts of France
They like to kick off their shoes when they dance
And when they're making some sweet romance
The stars and moon stop to peek a glance
Here near the border of Mexico
The summer sun moves us all too slow
And I'm standing like a bored bar fly
Waiting for the boiling heat to die
And now here we go again
We are bold up to the brim
With a final dizzy spin
All searching without end

I'd like to hold your hand as we dance
And then we'll make us some sweet romance
Underneath this vivid sun
Far away from everyone
Yes you have caught my heart for free
Oh but baby not eternally
It is just for tonight you'll be
Every little thing to me
And now here we go again
We are bold up to the brim
With a final dizzy spin
All searching without end

Baby don't you dare try to hide
I will need you right here by my side
Not in frail fractured candlelight
I know just what it is you feel inside
Won't you pass that bottle back to me
And give me just a few more of these
I might need another subtle tease
You make me go all weak in my knees
And now here we go again
We are bold up to the brim
With a final dizzy spin
All searching without end

Forward find another way to go
Down to the beaches all stripped below
Feel your hand for something new and slow
That is all that you will need to know
I would love to try to make you mine
But I have not really got the time
For a simple sailor's lazy dream
An inconsequential silly thing

And now here we go again
We are bold up to the brim
With a final dizzy spin
All searching without end

I hear in the southern parts of France
They like to kick off their shoes when they dance
And when they're making sweet romance
The stars and moon stop to peek a glance
Here near the border of Mexico
The summer sun moves us all too slow
And I'm waiting like a bored bar fly
For another man to catch my eye

Monster Am I















Monster am I
He tells all his friends
Weight of the world
Is coming down again
Faced with a lie
I cannot look at him
So monster am I once again

Give it up little darlin
Tellin me somethin new
Give it up little darlin
Mournin time is through
Give it up little darlin
I can't believe in you
So monster am I once again

Monster am I
The fear knows no friend
Stackin up the bricks
That tumble down and then
I wait til the dawn
To hear him comin in
So monster am I once again

Give it up little darlin
Tellin me somethin new
Give it up little darlin
Mournin time is through
Give it up little darlin
I can't believe in you
So Monster am I once again

Monster am I
With wounds on the mend
Comin to a wall
With no patience left to bend
Tired of this lie
That holds my heart to him
So monster am I once again.
Monster am I once again.

Monster am I once again.

Here (I Will Wait)




















Somewhere in the mountains
Near the quarter staff
In the eastern route
Yeah the rooster's back
Croonin like he does
In a morning way
And I wait on you
Snappin twigs in half

And here I will wait for you
Here I will wait for you
Yeah here I will wait for you
Here I will wait for you

Muscled me over
For a closer look
Unconscious things
From storybooks
I'm feelin inside
The way I used to do
I never felt that way
Since I met you

And here I will wait for you
Here I will wait for you
Yeah here I will wait for you
Here I will wait for you

Fancied up smiles
Under false arrest
Take a shiny thing
And make a mess
Sometime before the dawn
Our pillows must eject
What we want to hold
But can't capture yet

And here I will wait for you
Here I will wait for you
Yeah here I will wait for you
Here I will wait for you
Here.


On This Dirty Road



















Sweet little pins
Underfoot
Like creatures
Scuttling and scattering
When an old potted plant
Gets the move
Got to move
I felt you move.

Bagage held
Bagage sold
Pucker up little lady
There's plenty to see
On this dirty road.

Nobody told you
Which way to look
Which way to feel
Which path to take
That path you took
Old and scarred
Sailor skin
Twinged and sore muscles
I saw you grin.

Bagage held
Bagage sold
Pucker up little lady
There's plenty to see
On this dirty road.

Feel the nails in old-time wood
Rusted and hard
With time and weather
There are only so many
Steps you can take
Light as a feather
The skin feels
Smother at night
The lights don't work
I heard you fight.

Bagage held
Bagage sold
Pucker up little lady
There's plenty to see

On this dirty road.

Connectivity














You might pass through the checkpoint
But you won't get past me
I have suns and stars
And iron bars
Set to measure gravity.

The lust is nothing
The lust is everything

Our fleeting moments
And sarcastic smiles
Create fountains to mesmerize
Yet sunken below
Years of unrest
A sort of madness shifts its eyes.

I felt your skin
Under my skin
Two creatures searching for answers
I'll eat your leftovers
If you'll hold up my hair
When body's my frame grows thin.

Promise me something
Under this red skyfall
A whisper for your ear,
Note the clouds
Note the color
And keep our secrets here.

How To Exit














Riot heart my friend
Riot heat
This desperation inside lies
Burning to my feet
I see you come
I see you go
But always at arm's length
These petty shouts
And petty blows
Are taking all my strength.

Miracle Worker
Miracle Worker
Come press your luck with me
A teary wasted hour rots
Hot-headed words live free
The beastly parts
Far from the heart
Want a chance to breathe.

I'd lift you up
I'd raise your chin
I'd like hold your hand
To give us both a cause to smile
But you'll never understand.

And Ah,
Here it is.
That little lonely plea:
"Look at me,
Look at me,
Before your eyes can't see,
We're never half the love we want
If you won't
Please
Look at me!"

We split our ways
Split our hairs
Trying to relive
A shaky romance
A cat and mouse dance
The way foundations give.

She holds her shirt
Up really high
Bruised little ego-girl
Inside
Whispering in my achy ear
"You know you want
You know you are
Some thing unsatisfied."
