Be Still Child Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : [A-->B] Life
I said my goodbyes to the sun
my little one, so far away.
And how strange, how small we must become
yet as familiar as yesterday

The bluest iris that I'd ever seen
She vanished like a dream, sinking back
into the ground
Singing, 'Maybe I'm ashamed, and maybe I wept real tears.'
But maybe she was hiding because she wanted to be found...
You wanted to be found!

Don't be afraid of him.
Be still.

We Know Who Our Enemies Are Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : [A-->B] Life
Save my skin, I need a medic
Hold me down, I'm only sewn down.
Save my teeth, show me you meant it
Catch my death, I'm only sewn together.

My eyelids are heavy, and the night's wearing on
Your story's familiar, and your innocence is gone
We'd burn like the morning then break like your heart
Fall in love without warning just to fall back apart
All fevered and blistered, with nothing at stake
I feel the warmth of her whisper, and the cold of my mistakes
Her soul in the balance, my heart in her hands
I made her a widow, she made me a man.

I Never Said That I Was Brave Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : [A-->B] Life
You might sleep, but you'll never dream
Onward! Progress! Or so it seems.
You might laugh, but you'll never smile.
Come on in and waste away awhile.

When dreams of rings of flowers fade and blur
Giving way to that familiar ill
come over and part your soft white curtains
Where I'm waiting for you still
If you'd unlatch the window,
If you'd let me lay there on your floor
If you'd give me another chance,
If you'd forget the pain I caused before
No use in saying how I'm sorry
So I'm trying not to speak
I'll sing in silence, lay beside you
With my face there on your cheek
My stomach swears there's comfort there
In the warmth of the blankets on your bed
My stomach's always been a liar-
I'll believe it's lies again.

Silencer Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : [A-->B] Life
Don't waste your lips on words I've heard before
Kiss my tired head.
And each letter written wastes your hand, young man
Come and lead me to your bed
You gave me hope that I'd not lost her
And then thought it rather strange to see me smile-
as I don't do too much smiling these days.

She put on happiness like a loose dress
Over pain I'll never know
"So the peace you had," she says,
"I must confess, I'm glad to see it go."
We're two white roses lying frozen just outside his door
I've made you so happy and so sad,
But which should I be more sorry for?

Come kiss my face goodbye,
that space below my eye and above my cheek
Cause I'm faint and fading fast, I see a darkness
And I shall be released.
I'll pass like a fever from this body,
And softly slip into his hands
I tried to love you and I failed,
But I have another plan.

My Lord, how long to sing this song?
And my Lord, how muchmore of this pretending to be strong?
When she stands before your throne
Dressed in beauty not her own
All soft and small, you'll hear her call
"you brought me here, now take me home."

The Cure For Pain Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : [A-->B] Life
The cure for pain is in the pain,
so it's there that you'll find me.
Until again I forget,
and again he reminds me,
"Hear my voice in your head,
and think of me kindly."

Let me be, let me be..

Lowered down like a casket
and buried just below her chest.
"Whatever I was searching for,
it was never you," she says.
The record ended long ago,
we go on dancing nonetheless.

I opened like a locket,
"If you're ever cold," I wrote,
"there's warmth inside me.
I'm the pocket of an old winter coat."
But where she used to say "I need you."
Now...."I don't."

You'd only make the softest sound,
like sugar pouring into tea.
Darling let your Self pour down
and dissolve into the Love
who revealed himself there quietly to me...

(Jesus have mercy on us.)

Torches Together Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
Why burn poor and lonely under a bowl or under a lampshade
Or on the shelf beside the bed
Where at night you lay turning like a door on its hinges?...
First on your left side, then on your right side... then your left side again.
Why burn poor and lonely?
Tell all the stones we're gonna make a building...
We'll be cut into shape and set into place
Or if you'd rather be a window, I'll gladly be the frame,
Reflecting any kind words, we'll let in all their blame...
And ruin our reputation all the same.
So never mind our plan making, we'll start living...
Anyway, aren't you unbearably sad?
Then why burn so poor and lonely?

We'll be like torches!
We'll be like torches!
We'll be like torches... OH!!
We'll be torches together... TORCHES TOGETHER!!
We'll be like torches!
We'll be like torches... with whatever respect our tattered dignity demands,
Torches together... hand in hand.

Why pluck one string... what good is just one note?
Oh, one string sounds fine, I guess... but we were once 'one notes',
We were lonely wheat quietly ground into grain...
What light and momentary pain!
So why the safe distance, this curious look?
Why tear out single pages when you can throw away the book?
Why pluck one string when you can strum the guitar?

Strum the guitar!
Strum the guitar!
Strum the guitar... with no beginning, with no end.
Take down the guitar and strum the guitar!
Strum the guitar if you're afraid.
And I'm afraid and everyone's afraid and everyone knows it,
But we don't have to be afraid anymore.

You played the flute, but no one was dancing,
You sang a sad song... but none of us cried.
You played the flute, but no one was dancing,
And you sang a sad song, and none of us cried.
You played the flute, but no one was dancing,
You sang a sad song... but none of us cried.
You played the flute, but no one was dancing,
And you sang a sad song... you sang such a sad song.

January 1979 Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
January, 1979 saw a terrible crash (and couldn't help but laugh.)
My ear pressed against the pass like a glass on a wall of a house in a photograph.
My forehead no longer sweet with the holy kisses worthy of your fiery lips.
I was floating in a peaceful sea 'rescued' by a sinking ship.
If I could become the servant of all - no lower place to fall. you watched me like a 10 car highway wreck with detached, vulgar curiosity. this looking
down at the tops of the hats of us passers-by from your 7th story balcony... from such a height you missed the creatures too small for sight carry on covert
conversation and the misguided insects crowned me their grasshopper king with a dance of celebration! after years with a crown on my head I've grown
overfed, unconcerned, and comfortably numb kept busy indulging in pleasures of the wealthy (someone make me afraid of what I've become!) At the first sign
of possible trouble I turned my heels and ran (Oh, I'll never learn) my life is a cup of sugar I borrowed before time began and forgot to return, it was a
matter of time - I always said I could see now I'm going blind, it was a matter of miserable time -- but I heard somewhere there was a cure for useless eyes?

Tie Me Up! Untie Me! Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
I was looking at the leaves, climbing to the tops of the trees...
But you were nowhere to be found;
Just beneath all the green you were buried like a little seed...
Among the roots and underground.
I was licking at the leaves, but I was in short sleeves and you,
You were like some sickness that I caught;
And my sweetheart moved away, swept off like garbage in the alleyway...
And I need more grace than I thought.

(Oh, please, brother, I am far... brother, I am far away... brother, I am far away from everything.
Oh, brother, I am far... brother, I am far away... brother! I am far away from everything good!)

She's like a hot cloth on a fevered head,
And like a needle she leads me (while I follow like thread)
Tie me up! Untie me! All this wishing I was dead is getting old...
IT'S GETTING OLD!!
... it goes on, but it's old.

I was swimming through the waves for what must have been days...
But could find no relief;
When I started sinking down I thought for certain I would drown...
Until I saw you in the ocean,
Underneath all the bright colored fish tell of a treasure in a dull shell...
"Such subtlety, so easily missed!"
You, my hidden pearl of pure and perfect love,
And I'm the living example of 100% the opposite of this.

(If I ask the same questions... well, yes, sir, I ask the same questions...
Well, maybe I repeat myself from time to time.
But if I ask the same questions... and then I know I ask the same questions,
It's because everyone who answers me is a liar!!)

She's like the hot cloth on a fevered head,
And like a needle she leads me (while I follow like thread)
But you untied me... didn't You untie me, Lord?
And now I haven't even thought about killing myself in almost five months.

Leaf Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
If you fail to see a problem, which I find hard to believe,
Or if you're hanging on from branches licking honey from the leaves;
You say, "The hopelessness of living... and the childishness of suicide!"
But there's a call to love my brother that can never be destroyed.

However much you talk... however well you talk,
You make a certain sense, but it's still only stupid talk.
However much I strut around... however loud I sing,
The shining One inside me won't say anything.

Oh, to want one thing!
Oh, to want one thing!
(Oh, the purity of heart)
Oh, to want one thing!
Oh, to want one thing!

And you'll remind me how I said you were a quiet bed in all my noise to rest...
Well, I was charming you at best.
Can you remember, dear, my saying how my coming here was a terrible fall,
As we crept like thieves along your bedroom hall?
I'd come down and touch your eyelids, but if you stay up too late
I'll throw you back into the cupboard with all the chipped and dirty plates,
Like the carnival game with the bottleneck and rubber ring...
Where even if you win, even then you don't win.

(All I want is to want one thing....)

Disaster Tourism Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
Call me outside, I'll come running down...
You call me outside, I'll come running down.
Call me outside, I'll come running down...
You call me outside, I'll come running down.

When I satisfied each need invented by my eyes,
I was a nest by a fox's hole or dirt underneath your boot soles.
When I satisfied each need invented by my eyes,
Till it was nothing like I'd imagined.

Like cocaine, their green eyes fixed on the television to pass the time,
Until their two miles of elegant blinds halfway raised for the watching as you walked by:
"Look, come to the window... she carries a candle at mid-day
While the sun's still so high!"
But you knew better than to pay mind to what people and the devil say.

Call me outside, I'll come running down into your vacant, intoxicating night.
If you call me outside to their haunted streets, their red electric lights!
Oh, I'm on the sad side of a nowhere town, but sister I'm all you've got,
So call me outside, I'll come running down... then, not another word.

Seven... Sisters Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
He made the world a grassy road before our bare, wandering feet...
(He made the world a grassy road before our bare, wandering feet)
Then crushed the stones into the softest sand between our toes...
(Then crushed the stones into the softest sand between our toes)
But we're wondering where to sleep,
Oh, but clever words on pages turn to fragments, circles, points and lines,
And they cover them like carpets with graceful, meaningless, ornamental designs.

Come quick, You Light that knows no evening... come, alone to the alone!
There are a thousand half-smiles well worth leaving for to take your madness home,
And You dance inside my chest where no one sees You,
But sometimes I see You.

(Come quick, You Light that knows no evening... come, alone to the alone.
There's a thousand half-loves well worth leaving for to take your madness home,
And You dance inside my chest, etcetera... etcetera... ETCETERA!!)

Oh, rejoice, the Cleansing of my lips... rejoice, Salvation of my soul!
I still have a thousand half-loves... oh, my God!
I want to shoot myself just thinking about it!
And you think I don't mean what I say?
WELL, I MEAN EVERY WORD I SAY!!

I threw a small stone down at the reflection of my image in the water...
(I threw the stones down at the reflection of my image in the water)
And it altogether disappeared.
I burst as it shattered through me like a bullet through a bottle...
And I'm expected to believe that any of this is real.

The Soviet Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
God is love and love is real, but the dead are dancing with the dead,
And whatever's charming disappears while all things lovely only hurt my head
As I gather stones from fields like pearls of water on my fingers' ends
(And I carefully wrap them up in boxes... safe from windows...)
From things that break!!

As the night-time shined like day it saw my sorry face and hair a mess
But it liked me best that way... besides, how else could I confess?
When I looked down like if to pray,
Well, I was looking down her dress... good God!
Please, catch for us the foxes in the vineyard... the little foxes.

So turn your ears, you musicians, to silence
Because they only come out when it's quiet,
Their tails brushing over your eyelids...
Oh, wake up, sleepers, and rise from the dead!
Or the fur that they shed that's gonna lay on your bed
In a delicate orange-ish cinnamon red... ah, but I don't need this!
I don't need this!
For I have my loves... I don't need this.

Paper-Hanger Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
And not one motion her gesture could I forget,
The prettiest bag lady I ever met...
Pushing her cart in the rain, then gathering plastic and glass
She watched the day pass,
Not hour by hour... but pain by pain.
I was a basket filled with holes, and she was the sand I tried to hold
That ran out behind me as I swung with some invisible hand.

I stopped believing, you start to move
(She was like wine turned to water then turned back to wine)
I stopped my leaving and the better man bloomed
(And you can pour us out and we won't mind)

I was dead then alive,
She was like wine turned to water then turned back to wine;
You can pour us out, we won't mind,
As scratch around the mouth of the glass, "My life is no longer mine."

And if you're still looking for a blanket, sweetie,
I'm sorry, I'm no sort of fabric;
But if you need a tailor... then take your torn shirt, stumble up my stairs,
And mumble your pitiful prayers and in your tangled, knotted sleep,
Our midnight needles go to work until all comfort and fear flows in one river
Down in the shop by the mirror where you see yourself whole... and it makes you shiver.

I stopped believing, you start to move
(She was like wine turned to water then turned back to wine)
I stopped my leaving and the better man bloomed
(And you can pour us out and we won't mind)

I was dead then alive,
She was like wine turned to water then turned back to wine;
You can pour us out, we won't mind,
As scratch around the mouth of the glass, "Our lives our not our own."

Even the wind lay still,
Our essence was fire and cold and movement, movement...
Oh, if they ask you for the sign of the father in you,
Tell them it's movement, movement, movement and... repose.

My Exit, Unfair Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
My exit unobserved,
And my homesickness absurd...
I said "water" expecting the Word would satisfy my thirst,
Talking all about the second and third
When I haven't understood the first.

Jonah, where's that boat going... your ship set with eager sails?
There's a swirling storm soon blowing, and no use, fishermen,
In rowing from the consecrated whale!

And just like the clouds, they bring a darkness and a hard rain's gonna fall,
I felt the crowd bring a loneliness and a hard rain, a hard rain's gonna fall.

And she'd always weight me down,
But, afraid I might need her, I dragged her around,
It's best to keep close sackcloth and ash in a whitewashed town;
She wore that phony smile on her face,
I guess like a bandage on a wounded place,
While I kept the keys to every old lock just in case.

Rehearsed indifference tossed aside,
Our narrow arms spread wide,
"What unseen pen etched eternal things on the hearts of human kind...
But never let them in our minds?"

Oh, the clouds they brought a darkness and a hard rain's gonna fall,
And all my laughter ends in emptiness and a hard rain's gonna fall.
My every medicine causes more illness and a hard rain's gonna fall,
And until I let you go I didn't know, you were never mine...
You were never mine at all.

But now I spend my days in ever-increasingly complicated ways,
Convincing myself of the rightness of each word I say.
My exit, unfair if unobserved!
My exit, unfair if unobserved!
My exit, unfair...
Ya sabur, subhannallahi, a'udhu billahi minash-shaitanir-rajim,
al-hamdu lilllah, bismillahir rahmanir rahim.

Four Letter Word (Pt. Two) Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
I wrote a four word letter... with post-script in crooked lines,
"Though I'd lived I'd never been alive."
And you know who I am... you held my hem as I traveled blind,
Listening to the whispering in my ear, soft but getting stronger,
Telling me the only purpose of my being here is to stay a bit longer.
Stealing a bicycle chain as the handlebars crashed to the ground,
And the back wheel detached from the frame, it kept rolling, yeah,
But aimlessly drifting around.

Oh, doubters, let's go down... let's go down, won't you come on down?
Oh, doubters, let's go down... down to the river to pray.
"Oh, but I'm so small I can barely be seen... how can this great love be inside of me?"
Look at your eyes.... they're small in size, but they see enormous things.

Wearing black canvas slippers in our frog-on-a-lily-pad pose,
We sewed buttons and zippers to Chinese pink silk and olive night clothes.
If you could someday stop by somehow we'll show you the pictures and fix you some tea...
See, my dad's getting a bit older now, and just unimaginably lonely!

Oh, pretenders, let's go down... let's go down, won't you come on down?
Oh, pretenders, let's go down... down to the river to pray.
"Oh, but I'm so afraid" or "I'm set in my ways"
But He'll make the rabbits and rocks sing His praise.
"Oh, but I'm too tired, I won't last long."
No, He'll use the weak to overcome the strong!
Oh, Amanda, let's go down... let's go down, won't you come on down?
Mama, Nana, let's go down... down in the dirt by the river to pray.

(A wick to fit the wax... wood to fit the wire)

You strike the match... why not be utterly changed to fire?
To sacrifice the shadow and the mist of a brief life you never much liked?
So if you'd care to come along, we're gonna curb all our never-ending, clever complaining,
As who's ever heard of a singer criticized by his song?
Though we hunger, though all that we eat brings us little relief,
We don't know quite what else to do;
We have all our beliefs, but we don't want our beliefs...
God of Peace, we want You.

Carousels Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
On a bus ride into town, I wondered out loud, "Why am I going to town?"
As I looked around at the billboards and the stores I thought, "Why do I look around?"
And I kissed the filthy ground... the first dry spot I found...
I didn't have to wonder why I was laying down.

Before long I was too cold... took a bus back to the station,
I found a letter left by a pay phone with no return contact
And it read like a horn blown by some sad angel,
"Bunny, it was me... it was me who let you down"
It was the shyest attempt I'd ever seen at conversation.

But if I didn't have You as my guide, I'd still wander lost in Sinai,
Counting the plates of cars from out-of-state,
How I could jump in their path as they hurry along!
And You surround me, You're pretty but You're all I can see
Like a thick fog...
If there was no way into God,
I would never have laid in this grave of a body for so long.

And St. Cyril's fair always came through the first week of September
But it's already the 19th... and there's no sign of it...
Yet I have a hard time remembering all the things I should remember
And a hard time forgetting all the things that I was supposed to forget.
And, Christ, when You're ready to come back,
Then I think I'm ready for You to come back;
But if You want to stay wherever exactly it is You are,
That's okay, too... it's, it's really none of my business.

And if I didn't have You as my guide, I'd still wander lost in Sinai
Or down by the tracks watching trains go by
To remind me: there are places that aren't here.
And I had a well but all the water left,
So I'll go ask Your forgiveness with every breath,
And if there was no way into God,
I would never have laid in this grave of a body... so long, dear.

Son Of A Widow Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Catch For Us The Foxes
I'll ring Your doorbell
Until You let me in...
And I can no longer tell
Where "You" end and "I" begin.

Grape on the vine, grape on the vine,
We've been alone a long time.
Grape on the vine... why not be crushed to make wine?

Pay no attention to me
Dancing with my girl...
With every intention to be failures in this world.

Grape on the vine, grape on the vine,
We've been alone a long time.
Grape on the vine... why not be crushed to make wine?

Six of my closest friends
Will dig up the ground...
All my accomplishments
Gently lowered down.

Grape on the vine, grape on the vine,
We've been alone a long time.
Grape on the vine... all is the same to the souls of those so much resigned.
Grape on the vine, grape on the vine,
We've been alone a long time.
Grape on the vine, grape on the vine...

The Son of the widow
You raised from the dead...
Where did His soul go
When He died again?

Messes Of Men Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
I do not exist, but faithfully insist
Sailing in our separate ships
and from each tiny caravelle
Tiring and trying there's unnecessary dying
like the horseshoe crab in its proper seasons sheds its shell
Such distance from our friends
like a scratch across a lens,
made everything look wrong from anywhere we stood
and our paper blew away before we'd left the bay,
so half-blind we wrote these songs on sheets of salty wood

Caught me making eyes at the other boatman's wives,
and heard me laughing louder at the jokes told by their daughters
I'd set my course for land,
but you well understand
it takes a steady hand to navigate adulterous waters
The propeller's spinning blades held acquaintance with the waves
as there's mistakes I've made no rowing could outrun
The cloth blowing on the mast like to say I've got no past
but I'm nonetheless the librarian and secretary's son
with tarnish on my brass and mildew on my glass,
I'd never want someone so crass as to want someone like me
but a few leagues off the shore, I bit a flashing lure
and I assure you, it was not what I expected it to be!
I still taste its kiss, that dull hook in my lip
is a memory as useless as a rod without a reel
To an anchor ever-dropped, seasick yet still docked
Captain spotted napping with his first mate at the wheel,
floating forgetfully along, with no need to be strong
We keep our confessions long and when we pray we keep it short

I drank a thimble full of fire and I'm not ever coming back

Oh, my God!

I do not exist we faithfully insist
while watching sink the heavy ship of everything we knew
If ever you come near I'll hold up high a mirror
Lord, I could never show you anything as beautiful as You

The Dryness And The Rain Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
First came a strong wind,
rippin' off rooftops like bottlecaps
and bending lamp posts down in the ground.

then came a thunder shattering my windows
but you were not that strong wind or that might sound

You left the bar in shambles,
the rabbit hutch in ruins,
the split-rail fence splintered and the curtains torn.

all the cows out from the pastures trampling of the pumpkins
and the horses from their stable ambling in the corn

[foreign language chanting:]
Isa ruhu-lah 'alaihis-salat was-salam

I've flown unnoticed just behind you like an insect
And I've watched you like a falcon from a distance as you passed.

then swooped down to be nearer, to the traces of the footsteps
to pick the fallen grain from the dirt beneath the crooked grass.

And I'm gonna take that grain and I'm gonna crush it all together
into the flour of a bread as small and simple and sincere.

as when the dryness and the rain finally drink from one another
the gentle cup of mutually surrendered tears!

A fish swims through the sea
while the sea is in a certain sense,
contained within the fish!
Oh, what am I to think
of what the writing of a thousand lifetimes
could not explain
if all the forest trees were pens
and all the oceans - ink?

[more foreign language chants:]
nastagh-firuka ya Hokan
ya Dhal-Jalah wal-Ikram
Isa ruhu-lah 'alaihis-salat was-salam
ya Halim, ya Qahhar
ya Muntaqim, ya Ghaffar!
la Ilaha ilallahu, Allahu Akbar!

Wolf Am I! (And Shadow) Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
It's the smell of hot summertime trash
It's the city noise of a busy street
It's a train derailed and a two car head on freeway crash
Each time we meet

"And if it comes as some sort of a surprise", she said
"That I seem so composed,
I've kept this moment closer to my eyes", she said,
"Than the glasses resting on the edge of my nose"

Shadow am I!
Shadow am I!
The question of a person, no said reply
Wolf am I!
and Shadow cast on the sheep as I pass by
Shadow am I!
Shadow am I!
or like a
wearing-black-socks-and-white-woolen-locks
Wolf am I, and shadow

she was grace and green as a stem,
but I walk heavy on delicate ground

...as I go showing off again
Self-impressed by how well I can put myself down!
And there I go again
To the next further removed level
Of that same exact feigned humility!

this for me goes on and on to the point of nausea

Shadow am I!
Like suspicion that's never confirmed
But it's never denied
Wolf am I,

no, "shadow" - I think - is better
as I'm not something as the absence of something

So SHADOW AM I!
the material world seems to me like a newspaper headline-
it explicitly demands your attention
and it may even contain some truth
and what's really going on here?

one day the water's gonna wash it away
and on that day, nothing clever to say.

Yellow Spider Lyrics

Album : Brother, Sister
We took the twine we used to use
to tie up tight our tattered shoes
twisted twigs and crooked cross
a necklace for the deeply lost
Builder with the broken bricks
mother to the baby chicks
you made this world to look so nice
I wonder what the next one's like?
yellow spider
yellow leaf
confirms my deepest held belief...

A cat came drifting onto a porch from the outside cold
And with eyes closed, drinking warm milk from my bowl,
Thought:
"Nobody hears me (nobody hears me)
I crept in so soft!
And nobody sees me (nobody sees me)
As I watched six steps off."

Like the peacocks wandering the walkways of the zoo
Who have twice the autonomy the giraffes and tigers do
Saying:
"No one can stop me (no one stop me)
No one clips my claws!
now everyone watches me (everyone watches me)
Scale these outside walls!"

you took the puous and profane,
turned around the praise and blame,
said "A glass can only spill what it contains!"
To the perpetually plain and the incurably inane
A glass can only spill what it contains!

What new mystery is this?
what blessed backwardness??
the Immeasurable one is held and does not resist!
struck by wicked words and foolish fists of senseless men
the Almighty One does not defend!

I was halfway listening to what she thinks she knows
We're like children dressing in our parents clothes saying:]

"Nobody knows me (nobody knows me)
No one knows my name!
No, Nobody knows me (nobody knows me)
Nobody knows me... "

I half-heartedly explained
But gave up peacefully ashamed
as a glass can only spill what it contains!
We went from Portugal and Spain
And in her mind the entire time it rained!
A glass can only spill what it contains!

What new mystery is this?
in overflowing emptiness!
the invisible is seen among the shadows and the mist,
Before my doubting eyes,
The infinite appears this time.
The unquestionable is questioned
But makes no reply!

What new mystery is this? [x5]
"My rabbi"
my lips betray with a kiss

What new mystery is this?

Nice And Blue (Part 2) Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
You were a song I couldn't sing
Caught like a bear by the bees
With its hand in a hive
Who complains of the sting
when I'm lucky I got out alive!

A life at best left half-behind
The taste of the honey
Still sweet on my tongue
And I'd run (Lord knows I've tried)
But there's no place on Earth
I can hide from the wrong I've done

Then I saw a mountain and I saw a city
Steadily sinking but suspiciously calm
It wasn't an end, it wasn't a beginning
But a ceaseless stumbling on

there, strapped like a watch on my wrist
that's finished with gold but can't tell time!
was all or what little pleasure exists
Seductive sold and useless mine

Our horse was fast and first from the gate
with the lead of a length at the sound of the gun
ant the last of our cash laid down to fate (at 17 to 1)
but the final stretch in the rear of the pack
That nag limping bad in the back
We reluctantly gave all the money we'd saved
A fifth to the commonwealth and the rest to the track!

then I saw a forest grow in the city
And a driftwood wall of birdhouse gourds
And I'm still waiting to meet a girl like my mom
(who's closer to my age)

the true light of my eyes is a Pearl
Equally emptied to equally shine
And all or what little joy in the world
seemed suddenly simple and endlessly mine

I was once the wine and you were the wineglass,
I was once alive when you held me,
but G-d became the glass,
all things left are emptiness
but oh, you're just a little girl
if you look out and see a trace
of a dark bed that was once my face
in the clarity of such grace,
you'll forget all about me

The Sun And The Moon Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
Daniel broke the king's decree,
Peter stepped from the ship to the sea
there was hope for Job like a cut down tree,
I hope that there's such hope for me
dust be on my mind's conceptions
and anything I thought I knew
each word of my lips' description,
and on all that I compare to You
the preference of the sun was
to the south side of the farm
I planted to the north in a terra-cotta pot
blind as I'd become, I used to wonder where you are-
these days I can't find where you're not!

mine's been a yard carefully surgace level tended
foxes burrowed underground
my gardening so highly self-recommended,
what could I have done but let you down?

the sun and the moon,
I want to see both worlds as One!

mine's been a vivid story, dimly remembered
and by the hundredth time it's told, halfway true
of bad behavior well engendered
what good is each good thing we think we do?

find a friend and stay close and with a melting heart
tell them whatever you're most ashamed of-
our parents have made so many mistakes,
but may we forgive them and forgive ourselves

the sun and the moon are my Father's eyes

Orange Spider Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
A note we wrote the other day
to any mice who pass this way
on crumed and sugared countertop:

"we must insist
your traffic STOP."

in their defense, they don't refuse
but nonetheless we've come to use
snapping traps and poison beans
(far less diplomatic means)
orange spider,
orange leaf
confirms my deepest held belief

C-Minor Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
Our house wrapped in disrepair,
A small mouse peeked out from a hole beneath the stairs
Nearby to where my dad sat in his favorite chair,
Thinking about the gov't and muttering a prayer
So I scattered some oats in hopes she'd stay
And sat still to stop from scaring her away-
But she hurried on her little way
And scurried around my mind
Ever since,
Every day

Open wide my door, my door, my Lord
(open wide my door)
To whatever makes me love You more
(open wide my door)
While there's still light to run towards

I'm water, you're the dry wood
Equal parts misguided and misunderstood
But all the neighborhood
Watched a fire burn from where they stood
As the smoke said
"we're not half as bad as G-d is good"
Still there's a whisper in my ear,
The voice of loneliness and fear, so I say:

"Devil, disappear!
I'm still (ehh... technically...) a virgin
After 27 years-
Which never bothered me before,
What's maybe 50 more?"

She came back for the oats
But she brought along a "friend"
(this never ends)
The harder the rain,
The lower the flowers in the garden bend
(this never ends)
I'd rather never talk again
Than to continue to pretend
That this never ends

In A Market Dimly Lit Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
The bird that plucked the Olive Leaf
Has been circling like a record 'round the spindle in my mind
Where the needle's worn the grooves too deep,
And scratched the wax that's blistered from the heat besides
So from any movement in the room-
If my cat walked by the arm skipped!
But to my surprise, my interrupting cat improved
A sound already so severely compromised

The needle's worn the grooves too deep

I'm a donkey's jaw on a desert dune
Beside the bush that Moses saw
That burned and yet was not consumed
She's the silver coin I lost,
I'm the sheep who slipped away
We pray the fingers crossed
But you listen patiently anyway

I wrote a little song for you
With a melody I'd borrowed put to words that didn't rhyme
To repeat what you already knew
As the stones thrown at your window tapped a syncopated time
You kept a distance out of fear you'd break
But what good's a single windchime, hanging quiet all alone?
The music our collisions would make
Is a sound that turns the road-that-leads-us-back-home
Into Home.

The music our collisions make!

I had a rusty spade but I'm not the fighting sort
If I was Samson I'd have found that harlot's blade
And cut my own hair short!
Then in a market dimly lit I come casually to pay
You see my coins are counterfeit
But accept them anyway

So spare me your goodbyes,
Your waving-handkerchief-good-byes
Given my tendency to err so on the sentimental side
I'll spare you my goodbyes,
The truth belongs to G-d,
The mistakes were mine

O, Porcupine Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
Without a queen the locust swarm
Turned the ground to black
Descending like a shadowy tower on a fish's back
And scattered the sticks who crawled
Like snakes in the sand
As the red clay took the form of a lizard
Who rushed like a moth to the flame of my open hand

(while, in my little world...)
A speckled bird humbly inspired
Ran across the road when it could have flown
And it made me smile
At the water's edge, Babylon
We laid down and slept
As the river wept for you, O'Zion!
The stones cry out,
Bells shake the sky
All creation groans...

SHHHH!!!

Listen to it!

Messes of men in farmer poverty;
Not much for monks but we pretend to be
Share a silent meal and a pot of chamomile
Gypsies like us should be stamped in solidarity
I hold you in my fond but distant memory
While for the Mother Hen to gather me
Who regretfully wrote,

"you have a decent ear for notes
But you can't yet appreciate harmony."

O' porcupine perched low in the tree
Your ees to mine:

"you'd be well inclined not to mess with me."

At the garden's edge beneath a speechless sky
As his friends all slept
Jesus wept- and no wonder
And now you say you wanna be set free??
And wanna set me free??
Well I'm told that can only come from
A union with the One who never dies

Brownish Spider Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
While, in my little world, I patched a plaster wall
And in my little world, I was waiting (just dying!)
To take offence at something
This is all there is in my sad little world

In darkness a light shines
On you and on me

I never gathered figs from a thorny branch,
I never picked a grapefruit off a bramble bush
And for the past five- almost six years now!-
You know you haven't once looked at me
With kindness in your eyes
You say Judas is a brother of mine?
But sister in our darkness a light shines
And all I ever want to say for the rest of my life
Is how that light is G-d,
And though I've been mistaken on this or that point,
That light is nevertheless G-d.

Every thing I thought I'd learned
Ambition and illusion turned
To drawings on a loose leaf sheet
Of tarts and cakes I couldn't eat

What in her do I require?
The face of gratified desire
What in me does she require?
The face of a gratified desire

Brownish spider,
Brownish leaf
Confirms my deepest held belief.
No more spider,
No more leaf,
No more me,
No more belief.

In A Sweater Poorly Knit Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : Brother, Sister
In a sweater poorly knit and an unsuspecting smile
Little moses drifts downstream in the Nile
A fumbling reply, an awkward rigid laugh
I'm carried helpless by my floating basket raft
Your flavor in my mind swings back and forth between
Sweet rhan any wine and bitter as mustard greens
Light and dark as honeydew and pumpernickel bread
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead!

As you plow some other field try and forget my name
See what harvest yields, and, supposing I'd do the same
I planted rows of peas but by the first week of July
They should have come up to my knees
But they were maybe ankle high
Take the fingers from your flute to weave your colored yarns
And boil down your fruit to preserves in mason jars
But now the books are overdueand the goats are underfed
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead!

You're a door-without-a-key, a field-without-a-fence
You made a holy fool of me and I've thanked you ever since.
If she comes circling back we'll end where we'd begun
Like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one
Or if I'm a crown without a king, if I'm a broken open seed
If I come without a thing, then I come with all I need
No boat out in the blue, no place to rest your head,
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead!

I do not exist only you exist

Every Thought A Thought Of You Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
Every thought a Thought of You
No more thought, I ought to do...
When there ain't a thing we see
Or touch we trust is true
Every thought a thought of You

Every look in search of You
No need for book when we're with You
You wear a thin disguise,
O, Light within my Brother's eyes!
Every look in search of You

Every song in praise of You
Our darkest nights are days to You
The Trees raise branches high
Like arms in church to grateful Sky,
Every song in praise of You

No one here to believe but You
Everyone else is bound to leave but You
When they swear, their love is real, they mean
I like the way you make me feel
No one here to believe but You
There is no one here to believe but You

Kul-anaya fikr minh ka
Abadan ahatmam enna ajab
Hayya'alal falal qad qamadis alah
Haqq: la illaha il Allah

The Fox, The Crow And The Cookie Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
Through mostly vacant streets a Baker from the outskirts of his town earned his living peddling sweets from a ragged cart he dragged around.
The clever Fox crept close behind, kept an ever watchful eye for a chance to steal a Ginger spicecake or a Boysenberry pie.

Looking down was the hungry Crow:
When the time is right I'll strike and condescend to the earth below and take whichever treat I like!
The moment the Baker turned around to shoo the Fox off from his cart, the Crow swooped down and snatched a shortbread cookie and a German chocolate tart.
Using most unfriendly words that the village children had not yet heard, the Baker shouted threats by Canzonet to curse the crafty bird:
You rotten wooden mixing spoon!
Why, you midnight winged raccoon!
You'd better bring those pastries back, you no good, burnt-black-macaroon!!!

The Fox approached the tree where the bird was perched, delighted, in his nest:
Brother Crow, don't you remember me?
It's your old friend Fox with a humble request.
If you could share just a modest piece, seeing as I distracted that awful man...
This failed to persuade the Crow in the least, so the Fox rethought his plan:
Then, if your lovely song would grace my ears, or, to even hear you speak would ease my pains and fears.
The Crow looked down with the candy in his beak.
Your poems of wisdom, my Good Crow, what a paradise they bring!
This flattery pleased the proud bird so, he opened his mouth and began to sing:
Your subtle acclamation's true, best to give praise where praise is due.
Every Rook and Jay in the Corvidae has been Raven about me too!
They admire me, one and all... must be the passion in my 'Caw', my slender bill, known through the Escadrille, my fierce, commanding claw...

[the cookie drops, Fox retrieves it -- there is commotion in the town as the Baker gives chase. Crow is humiliated, realizes he's been tricked, continues his song]

Ah, I've got a Walnut-brownie-brain and Molasses in my veins, crushed graham cracker crust, my powdered Sugar funnelcake cocaine.
Let the Crescent Cookie rise!
These Carob-colored Almond eyes would rest to see my Cashew Princess in the Swirling Marble Sky.
We'll rest upon the Knee where all divisions cease to be and rootbeer float in our Banana Boat across the Tapioca Sea.
When letting all attachments go is the only prayer we know.
May it be so, may it be so, may it be so, oh...
Amen

The Angel of Death came to David's room
The Angel of Death came to David's room
The Angel of Death came to David's room
He said, "Friend, it's time to go"'

[David:]
Angel, no, I think you've come too soon
Angel, no, I think you've come too soon
Angel, no, I think you've come too soon
It's not my time to go

[Angel:]
Sorry friend, now put your hand in mine
I'm sorry friend, now put your hand in mine

[David:]
But good Angel, don't I get a warning sign
Before it's my time to go?

[Angel:]
Come now David, where's your Grandma gone?
Come now David, where's your Grandpa gone?
Come now David, where's your Grandma gone?
Their time came to go

[David:]
But I slew Goliath with the sling and stone
I slew Goliath with the sling and stone
I slew Goliath with the sling and stone
It's not my time to go

[Angel:]
He'll be waiting for you when we get back home
He'll be waiting for you when we get back home
He'll be waiting for you when we get back home
It's time, it's time to go

Come now David, where's your Momma gone?
Come now David, where've your Uncles gone?
Come now David, where've your Aunts all gone?
Their time came to go

[David:]
Can I tell Solomon the things I've learned?
Can I tell Solomon the things I've learned?

[Angel:]
I'm sorry, friend, that's none of my concern
It's time, it's time to go

Come now David where's Uriah gone?
Stranded on the battlefield, the troops withdrawn
Come now David, where's Uriah gone?
His time came to go

Come now David, where's Bathsheba gone?
And where've your binoculars and rooftops gone?
And the unexpected Baby-from-the-bath-night gone?
Their time came to go

Come now David, where is everybody goin'? [x7]

Goodbye, I! Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
The Farmer drove his tractor where the soil had been tilled, planting Corn in rank and file from the silo to the lumber mill.
He rode along in silence as he looked out past the Honeysuckle field, watched the water turn, turn the waterwheel.
Started thinking about his daughter with affection, her reaction of disdain the day he replaced the blue Hydrangea with the climbing frame, while her disappointed Sister looked on, quiet as the snow, knowing well that those who know don't talk and those who talk don't know.
But she couldn't help but sing!
She couldn't help but sing!
Oh, she couldn't help but sing!
She couldn't help but sing!
She tried and couldn't help but sing!
She couldn't help but sing!
Oh, she couldn't help but sing!
She couldn't help but sing!

The Tortoise in the wheelchair wrapped his forehead in a bandage, with a cast they made from plaster for his phony broken leg so he'd get pushed around the sidewalk by the Zookeeper's assistant, with the Hummingbird observing from behind a yellow Flower, and he flapped his tiny wings, they moved so fast you couldn't see them, with resentment for the Tortoise, which was clear by his expression.
But the Tortoise turned and smiled with a Peacefulness which proved that there's a movement in our stillness and however much we move we're bound to stand completely still.
We stand completely still.
We all stand completely still.
We stand completely still.
Let's all stand completely still!
Let's stand completely still!
Let's all stand completely still!
Let's stand completely still!

Come, Tortoise, standing still -- go, Hummingbird, my will
Come, Tortoise, stumbling blind -- go, Hummingbird, my eyes
Come Tortoise, empty hands -- go, Hummingbird, my plan
Come Tortoise undefined -- go, Hummingbird, my mind
Come, Tortoise, letting go -- go, Hummingbird, 'I know'
Come, Tortoise, come and die -- go, Hummingbird, my I
Oh... goodbye, I! Goodbye, I! Bye, bye, bye

A Stick, A Carrot & String Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
The Horse's hay beneath His head our Lord was born to a manger bed, that all whose wells run dry could drink of His supply.
To keep Him warm the Sheep drew near, so grateful for His coming here: You come with news of grace, come to take my place!

The Donkey whispered in His ear: Child, in thirty-some-odd years, You'll ride someone who looks like me (untriumphantly).

While the Cardinals warbled a joyful song: He'll make right what man made wrong, bringing low the hills, that the valleys might be filled!

Then Child, asked the birds, well, aren't they lovely words we sing?
The tiny Baby lay there without saying anything.

At a distance stood a mangy Goat with a crooked teeth and a matted coat, weary eyes and worn, chipped & twisted horns.
Thinking: Maybe I'll make friends some day with the Cows in the pens and the Rambouillet, but for now I'll keep away - I got nothin' smart to say.

But there's a sign on the barn in the Cabbagetown: WHEN THE RAIN PICKS UP AND THE SUN GOES DOWN, SINNERS, COME INSIDE!
WITH NO MONEY, COME AND BUY.
NO CLEVER TALK NOR GIFT TO BRING REQUIRES OUR LOWLY, LOVELY KING.
COME YOU EMPTYHANDED, YOU DON'T NEED ANYTHING.

And the night was cool and clear as glass with the sneaking Snake in the garden grass, as Deep cried out to Deep, the Disciples fast asleep.
And the snake perked up when he heard You ask: if You're willing that this cup might pass we could find our way back home, maybe start a family all our own...but does not the Father guide the Son?
Not my will but Yours be done!
What else here to do?
What else me but You???

And the snake who'd held the world, a stick, a carrot and a string, was crushed beneath the Foot of Your not wanting anything.

Bullet To Binary (Pt. Two) Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
Let us die, let us die!
And, dying, we reply and lower our baskets down into the open bed of the fruit truck passing by.
And we can smile at each other again, me and my Cantaloupe Friend, cast our cares as a couple of Pears put a Blueberry garland on an Apple's head.
The Apple threw our half-baked fears like a wooden shoe in the windmill gear.
The turning stopped and we clearly saw: the flaw is in that which finds the flaw!
The Strawberry said to the Tangerine: My face is red but our hats are green.
Be it orchard or a curling vine, the Sun of yours is the Sun that's mine.

Ya subhannallah
Hayyul Qayyum
Subhannallahi Amma Yassifun
Sallalah wallah Muhammad (Sal.)
Ya Rabbi sali alaihi wa salim

Lettuce grows, lettuce grows in neatly sectioned beds and rows, but one day asked the Gardener to be moved to where the Eggplant goes.
The reason being, I must confess, I adore her shining, purple dress!
As the Eggplant listened in, she wasn't offended but she wasn't impressed.
The Potato called from underground: You've got it all turned upside-down.
Does the Rain that's sent each spring anew to fall on her not fall on you?
You project on her your inward scenes, she's a blank, external movie screen.
But the One who looks out from your eyes looks through hers and looks through mine.

We all well know, we're gonna reap what we sow.
We all well know, we're gonna reap what we sow.
So may we old-fashionably suggest the Unmarried not undress?
We well know we're gonna reap what we sow.
We all well know, we're gonna reap what we sow.
We all well know what kind of crops are gonna grow.
From each time you disrespect your parents, you better hope we don't hear it!
We who know: you're gonna reap what you sow.

We all well know, we're gonna reap what we sow.
But Grace, we all know, can take the place of all we owe.
So why not let's Forgive everyone everywhere everything all the time...
Everyone everywhere everything all the time...
Everyone everywhere everything all the time...

All the time everyone everywhere everything [x6]

Timothy Hay Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
On a cold December, just before dawn, as the sun said Hello!
To the sky, the Mantis prayed while the Lamellicorn tunneled and rolled in a threadbare tie.
When the Holland Lops in the Karakung Glades indignantly thump their feet and hopped away when they cut their noses on the sharp-tipped blades (which the grass doesn't mind in the least).
And there's a heat-pat waiting in the chicken-wire hutch where the does from the Netherlands stay, but that dry alfalfa don't taste like much and we're tired of the Timothy hay.
(hay)

I touched her back, she was lying facedown, the dew turned to frost in her eyes.
Me and Sister Margaret on the Pentagon lawn with our wrists in a plastic tie.
While the rats by the tracks on these winter days seeking shelter from the cold, make a nest from the tracts of our various ways that they can save their immortal souls.

No Timothy hay.
Oh no..., Timothy hay?
Oh no..., Timothy hay?
Oh no..., Timothy hay?
Oh no..., Timothy hay?
Oh no..., Timothy hay?
Please no more Timothy hay.
No more Timothy hay.
Oh no, no more Timothy hay.
No, no more Timothy hay.
Oh no, no more Timothy hay.
No more Timothy hay.

On a cold December, just after dusk, as the sun bid its cordial goodbyes, we'll be split to pieces like an apple seed husk to reveal the tree that's been hidden inside.
Which sapling called in a tattered sarong as the seeds from the Shepherd's Purse fell, broke the news to Mom, we found a better Mom we call 'God,' which she took quite well, singing:

What a beautiful God, what a beautiful God, what a beautiful God there must be!
What a beautiful God, what a beautiful God, what a beautiful God there must be!
What a beautiful God, what a beautiful God, what a beautiful God there must be!
What a beautiful God, what a beautiful God, what a beautiful God You must be!

Fig With A Bellyache Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
The Camel in the desert took a ship across the lake while the Fish in search of water found a Fig with a bellyache, who overheard the waves as they headed for the shore: We're not so sure of separations anymore.

At the Caterpillar picnic, Brother Butterfly stole a rhubarb stem, licked and dipped it in the sugar bowl.
Caught out for Massachusetts in a double-stack train through the Adirondacks spinning like a weathervane.
Gathering & cutting & splitting & stacking the wood, our fuel is neatly piled and we all feel good.

We pretend to care and like we understand, our eyes go soft but know it now: What we're thinking about's your mammary glands and how to sail your birth canal.
We found the pot that fit the lid no less now then when we were smarter did.
Our thoughts are like a tea bag on the saucer, all the flavor gone.

That Dog below our waist's aroused, as arms embraced the pretty Gals.
It came much more as a surprise, it happening while I hugged the guys.
We planted for the final frost, we once were found and now we're lost.
We got a heck of a lot to learn about remaining Taciturn.

Cattail Down Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
Cattail Down, the morning rail yard whistle blows.
Cattail Down, our boxcar bound for no-one-knows.
After every hidden seed out from its covering has been free and every book has been discarded from the bookshelf.
Cattail Down, in the forgetting of myself.
Cattail Down, replace the feathers in our vest.
Cattail Down, surround the ivy that's gone to poison in my chest.
The Parachute broke loose!, cried the Goose with misplaced (but understandable) concern for his little Brother's mental health, his happy little Brother in the forgetting of himself.

Cattail Down, around the bulrush the pollen shed.
Cattail Down, to dress my wounds, it left a Bee sting in their stead.

Have been anger thoughts from out my head

Headed east out of St. Paul we stopped for water, rested in the cemetery, watched the Mississippi.
Running out of food stamps, found a bag along the footpath off highway 61, filled with what looked like marijuana.
(don't worry, Mom, we left it there...)
Hopped a grainer out of Pig's Eye toward Milwaukee, the Deer between the tower and the tracks saw right through us, said:
You don't know where you came from, you don't know where you're going.
You think you're you, but you don't know who you are, you're not you...
you're Everyone Else.

You're Everyone Else...

As the Moon rose and the hour grew late, the day help on a Coconut estate raked up the dry leaves that fell dead from the Trees, which they burned in a pile by the lake.
The Beetle King summoned his men, and from the top of the Rhododendron stem: Calling all volunteers who can carry back here, the Great Mystery's been lit once again.
One Beetle emerged from the crowd in a fashionable abdomen shroud, said: I'm a Professor, you see, that's no mystery to me...
I'll be back soon, successful and proud.
But when the Beetle Professor returned he crawled on all six, as his wings had been burned, and described to the finest detail all he'd learned.
There was neither a light nor a heat in his words.
The deeply dissatisfied King climbed the same stem to announce the same thing, but in his second appeal sought to sweeten the deal with a silver Padparadscha ring.
The Lieutenant stepped out from the line as he lassoed his thorax with twine, thinking: I'm stronger and braver and I'll earn the King's favor.
One day all he has will be mine!
But for all the Lieutenant's conceit he, too, returned singed and admitting defeat: I had no choice, please believe, but retreat...
It was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat!
And it cracked like the thunder and bloodshot my eyes, though smothered with sticks it advanced undeterred.
Carelessly cast an ash cloud to the sky, my Lord, like a flock of dark, vanishing birds.

The Beetle King slammed down his fist: Your flowery description's no better than his!
We sent for the Great Light and you bring us this?
We didn't ask what it seems like, we asked what it IS!
His Majesty's hour at last has drawn nigh!
The elegant Queen took her leave from his side, without understanding but without asking why, gathered their Kids to come bid their goodbyes.
And the father explained: You've been somewhat deceived...
We've all called me your dad, but your True Dad's not me.
I lay next to your mom and your forms were conceived, your Father is the Life within all that you see.
He fills up the ponds as He empties the clouds, holds without hands and He speaks without sounds, provides us with the Cow's waste and coconuts to eat, giving one that nice salt-taste and the other a sweet.
Sends the black carriage the day Death shows its face, thinning our numbers with Kindness and Grace.
And just as a Flower and its Fragrance are one so must each of you and your Father become.
Now distribute my scepter, my crown and my throne and all we've known as 'wealth' to the poor and alone...
Without further hesitation, without looking back home, the King flew headlong into the blazing unknown!
And as the Smoke King curled higher and higher, the troops, flying loops 'round the telephone wires, they said: Our Beloved's not dead, but His Highness instead has been utterly changed into Fire!!!

Why not be utterly changed into Fire?...

Allah, Allah, Allah Lyrics

Artist : MEWITHOUTYOU
Album : It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright
In everywhere we look [x6]
Allah, Allah, Allah!
In everywhere we look

In everyone we meet [x6]
Allah, Allah, Allah!
In everyone we meet

In every blade of grass [x6]

It doesn't matter what you done
What effect is without a cause?
It doesn't matter what you done
Now lay your faithless head down
in necessity's Cotton Hand
There's a love that never changes
No matter what you done

If your old man did you wrong [x3]
Well maybe his old man did him wrong
If you care to sing forgiveness songs
Come down and join our band
And we'll cut you like sword
And sing forgiveness songs

Everywhere we look [x5]
It's all crazy
It's all false
It's all a dream

Dirty Town Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
Don't like living in a dirty town
Cause a dirty town gets me down

I saved up and I bought some land
Cause I can't stand living in a dirty town
Yeah I pinched my pennies and I put em down
And I washed my hands of a dirty town

Plant my seeds in the ground
Yeah I put em down in my new found land
Cause you can't plant seeds in a dirty town
No you can't plant seeds in a dirty town

I choppin' firewood choppin' firewood
Chop chop chop
Just like a country boy should be chopping wood
I country
My kindling sticks are the perfect little width
Kindling sticks

Get gone from a dirty town
Everybody now
Get gone from a dirty town
Ah-ah-ah-all I need is a chicken wire
and a chicken feed
And a ah-ah-ah-all I see is a new found land fertility, yeah!

My lady friend oh she don't need to pretend
She country
She cracks the crack on dawn with her crackin' whip
Crackity
We having fun just makin' little chillun
Cha chillun

Get gone from a dirty town...

My government no he ain't made of cement
He country
We get along singing good ol' country songs
Ol' guthrie
My bank account is a shoebox in the ground
And empty

Get gone from a dirty town....

Polynesia Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
We're on the sea
We're in a ship and we are sailing by
All of the fish and all the octopi
We look them right into their octopi eyes

I'm on the sea
I caught a mermaid looking right at me
I said, "Hey, baby. Why don't you come up top?
You could flip flop while we cruise the Florida Quays."

Remember when we said,
"You gonna see us on a red ship sailing."?
We'll think of you on your solid ground
We hope you think of us out here sailing around
Sailing around, sailing around
Sailing

Polynesia, Polynesia, Polynesia
Oceana, oh New Caledonia
We dropped the hook on the Capricorn
Remember when we said,
"You gonna see us with a sailor tan."?
We'll think of you and your stark white hands
Building your model ships
Wishing you were sailing around
Sailing around Sailing around
Sailing

Polynesia, Polynesia, Polynesia
Oceana, oh New Caledonia
We dropped the hook on the Capricorn

Angry Sea Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
I don't want the same disease
That everybody's got these days
I don't want to live that way
I do not want to live in pain
So take your parasites away
And keep them somewhere far from me
Cuz I don't want the same disease
That everybody's got these days

I don't want to live that way
I do not want to live in pain
Another fool in history
I'll tell you what it means to me
It's nothing but lobotomy
It's nothing but an angry sea striking a wave with me

It's coming like a big freight train
It's spreading like a wild flame
You know it's coming all our ways
So dig your dirt and make your grave
Mamma save me
Come on and vaccinate me
Cuz I don't want the same disease
That everybody's got these days

I don't want to live that way
I do not want to live in pain
Another fool in history
I'll tell you what it means to me
It's nothing but lobotomy
It's nothing but an angry sea striking a wave with me

Oh Ana Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
I'll be god
I'll be god
I'll be god
I'll be god, today
Hold my head under that bath and breathe away
Slit my wrists and watch that blood evaporate
Being this godly can't be good for Ana's safety Ana hear me

I'll play god
I'll play god
I'll play god
I'll play god, today
Ante up and play that god a poker game
Walk away with all our little god's spare change
Playing this god it can't be good for Ana's safety, Ana hear me

Oh, Ana, I'll be with you still
You are the angel that I couldn't kill

I'll fake god
I'll fake god
I'll fake god
I'll fake god today
Hop up on a cloud and watch the world decay
Ana on my shoulders and we'll laugh away
Faking this god it can't be good for Ana's safety,
Ana hear me, Ana baby, I'm not crazy

Oh Ana, I'll be with you still
You are the angel that I couldn't kill

Oh, Ana

Legs Away Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
I got lost about an hour ago
I sailed past that fork in the road and now here I stand
A stranger in a foreign land
An empty barn and a weather vein
A picket fence that's seen its day
Oh I sit to stay cuz I don't got much to do today
I go down to the local store
I caught a glance from the local whore that she threw my way
And I still got nothing to do today
I carry on down the street
I'm looking for a place to eat, but my belly's so full
With all these things I'm hoping for, whores

And I'm wishing my legs away
Oh I'm wishing my legs away
Cuz they're taking me to no where safe
Oh, they're taking me to know where safe

An old man in a pickup truck
Says, "son are you out of luck?"
And I nod my head
I say my day is spent and my spirit's dead
He says, "come on now take a ride.
You sit yourself in the passenger side and I'll go your way, cuz I don't got much to do today"

And I'm wishing my legs away
Oh I'm wishing my legs away
Cuz they're taking me to no where safe
Oh, they're taking me to know where safe

Love And Truth Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
Is my life not all that I thought it would be?
Is it simply ordinary?
Oh, is it far from all my fantasies?

I lay awake
I lay awake at night and brood
About the things I never do
And how I'm missing out on love and truth

Love and truth
Why are they so hard to achieve
Love and truth
They're such hot commodities
But come in such small quantities
Love and truth where are you?

I dance
I go out on the town and dance
I go and try to find romance
But all I come home is with empty hands
Oh, boo, hoo, hoo
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, cha-chagrin
But all I really want is love and truth

Oh, love and truth
Why is it that I cannot find these sweet delights
Oh, love and truth
If everything was up to me
I'd make sure that there was plenty of love and truth
Love and truth where are you?

Train Of Thought Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
Jump on my train
My little train of thought
Dip your tongue
Into my honey pot

I know what I have
Do you know what you got?
Jump on my train
My little train of thought

The season's shifting
From cool to hot
Jump on my train
My little train, my train of thought

The famous people
They go out looking proud
They're standing right in front
A big and lonesome crowd

The famous people
They got their demons
I got my demons
But in me she's believing

Hey, famous people
Step on my train
We'll make a movie
And it will be the real thing

Jump on my train
My little train of thought
I'm living life
To a pulse that's hot

The foolish people
They are so lovely
They got this way of doing everything politely
Hey foolish people
You foolish lot
Jump on my train
My little train, my train of thought

Verbatim Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
I wear women's underwear
And then I go to strike a pose in my full length mirror
I cross my legs just like a queer
But my libido is strong when a lady is near, ya
What defines a straight man's straight?
Is it the boxer in the briefs or a twelve ounce steak?
I tell you what a women loves most
It's a man who can slap but can also stroke

Goin' in the wind is an eddy of the truth and it's naked
It's verbatim and it's shakin'
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no more getting' elated
No more listless invitations

I live by a hospital
And every day I go out walking past its sickly windows
I see people dying there
But my tender age makes it hard to care
Incinerator and a big smoke stack
It's a phallic symbol and it makes me laugh
All I need is a heart attack
C'mon, humble my bones with a Cardiac

For the love of fuck
For the sake of Pete
Did you ever really think you'd love a guy like me?
I am the rooster in the morning
I'm the cock of the day
I'm the boxer in the briefs
I'm a twelve ounce steak
Eh-oh
Yabo

Ya, it's verbatim
And ya, and it's naked
And ya, and it's shakin'
It shakes, shakes shakes

Neighbour Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
I am your neighbor I can see you
I got these blinds that I peek through
And when you're crying
I see your tears fall down
They're making oceans
That in I
Sink and drown

I feel I know you
I feel I know you well
I've seen you go through
I've seen you go through hell
I was there when you
First let euphoria
Spill on your bed sheets
I could feel
What you felt

Do you feel used?
Well I would too, I would too
And would you use me
Like I did you?
Oh you would too

I am your neighbor
I can hear you
I got this tin can
With a string through
And when you're crying
I hear your shaky breath
And when you're lying
I hear your heart confess

Time's slipping away
Cuz I see your moving signs everyday
You got your things in your boxes
Your oven's always cold
You'll leave me all alone with just an
Empty peep hole

Do you feel used?
Well I would too, I would too
And would you use me
Like I did you?
Oh you would too

Ball Cap Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
I like the tree tops cuz they're reaching just like me
I'm tied up in knots like the brambles and the weeds

I am the rooster in the morning
You can hear me cockadoodling

I like the people standing in the streets
Cuz they are dumb faced, dumb faced just like me

They're asking, "What we supposed to do?
We got our left foot in our right shoe."

I wear my ball cap to hide my big eyes
You wear your black dress to hide your big thighs
Oh, baby, baby, I'll lose my ball cap
Well, only if you expose your lose fat

You know that beauty's only skin deep
Well, baby, baby, come on and skin me
I like the biggins only cuz they make me look real thin

I like the tree tops cuz they're reaching just like me
I'm tied up in knots like the brambles and the weeds

I am the rooster in the morning
You can hear me cockadoodling

Tic Toc Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
All this talk, all this ticking, all this shit talk
I'm staying in bed today
And it doesn't matter what they'll have to say to me
No I do not care just what they'll have to say to me
Cuz I am not listening
Tick Tock Tick Tock Ticky Ticky Tock Ticky Ticky Toc
Goes the clock and I sit and I watch the hours go
Lying on my bed I watch this big world float
And I do not care just what they'll have to say to me
Cuz I am not listening to you

Big hand, little hand, no hand, slow hand
Sitting in my hand is the sand of a shattered hour glass
And I throw these grains of sand into the wind and laugh
And I do not care just what they'll have to say about that
Cuz the sand man told me, there's no use in listening

I am not listening to you

Touch Up Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
All my makeup it has washed off I need a touch up
Mascara all up in my eyes, chemical hair dyes and highlights
Higher than my lights, higher than highlights
My makeup, it has washed off. I need a touch up

I need a makeover dream, exfoliant cream
Irons and proteins for my size
Cucumbers on my eyes
Tenderize my thighs
Film and foam
Tanner for skin tone
Nuclear bath balm
My makeup has washed off I need a touch up

I need a touch up
Need a nip and a tuck, need to be cropped and cut
I need a touch up I need a haircut,
Need a shave and a pluck to help me get me fucked
I am a makeover queen a swan out of duckling
Ugly duckling you're drowning in makeup
My makeup has washed off

I forget that I can remember when I was young climbing up fences
Scraping my knees, dirt on my cheeks
Not one makeover queen bone in me
I recall the door bell was ringing and there were Avon ladies singing wholesale

My makeup, it has washed off
I need a touch up

Little Hands Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : Touch Up
My baby's gone like a flame
Put out by the rain
Water down the drain

Little face, little feet, little hands in my mind
Where I'm crying all the time
Where I'm crying all the time

Little face, little feet, little hands in my brain
Driving me insane
Driving me insane

Little face, little feet, little hands not around
No more little sounds
No more little sound

My baby's gone like a flame
Put out by the rain
Water down the drain

O My Heart Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : O My Heart
Oh my heart, it's a fish out of water
Oh my heart, it's a fish on the rocks
and it bakes in the bad sun

Oh my heart, it's a rock in the gutter
Oh my heart, it's a rock and great boulder and stuck in the gutter

And I throw my heart back to the ocean
But it don't go far, it come back floating
And I watch it wash it up with the dead fish

But it ain't quite dead, it just is like this

Oh my heart, it's a house in tornado,
Oh my heart, it's a house in the sky in the eye of tornado
Oh my heart, it's a roof in El nino
Oh my heart, it's a roof made of straw in the jaw of El nino

And I pour my heart a new foundation
But it don't set hard, it just stays shaking
And I scratch my name, I scratch my name in
But it don't set hard, it gets mixed back in

Bam bam bam, bam bam bam, bam bam bam, bam...

Oh my heart, it's a fish out of water
Oh my heart, it's a rock in the gutter

Oh my heart, it's the black in a rainbow
Oh my heart, it's so damn so cold, so damn cold

And I throw my heart into the fire
'Cos I want to set my heart on fire
And I watch it try befriending embers
But the ice don't melt in mid-December

Oh my heart, it's a fish out of water
Oh my heart, it's a fish on the rocks
and it bakes in the bad sun

Burning Pile Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : O My Heart
All my style
all my grace
All I tried to save my face

All my guts, try to spill
All my holes, try to fill

All my money been a long time spent
On my drugs, on my rent
On my saving philosophy
It goes, one in the bank, and the rest for me

It goes, all my troubles on a burning pile
All lit up and I start to smile
If I, catch fire then I change my aim
Throw my troubles at the pearly gates

Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh

My momma, lonely maid
Got her buns in the oven, and she never got laid

My papa, renaissance man,
Sailed away and he never came back again

All my troubles on a burning pile
All lit up and I start to smile
If I, catch fire then I change my aim
Throw my troubles at the pearly gates

Oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh all your woe begones be gone
I said all your troubles, you don't need a thing

All my troubles on a burning pile
All lit up and I start to smile
If I, catch fire then I change my aim
Throw my troubles at the world again

It goes, all my troubles on a burning pile
All lit up and I start to smile
If I, catch fire then I'll take my turn
To burn burn and burn, and burn and burn

Body Of Years Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : O My Heart
All the remains of a cadaver of days,
I keep hidden away, keep them there just in case.
I wanna visit that place,
blow the dust from the bones
off a body of years that I leave all alone.
Just a body of years,

See the skin disappears
and the blood turns to stone
in a body of years now a pile of bones.
Like a sheet of veneer
each a piece of my soul.
It's a body of years that I leave all alone.

It's Just a body of years, now a pile of bones.
You know.
Old soul who falls down
can't stop trippin' on these
Old roads I go down
get back up and get my foot in the door,
and my face on the page
make my mark in the world
with a bat and a blade.
It's a body of work that you can't ever change
like a body of years that you take to your grave.
It's just a body of years that I leave all alone.
It's just a body of years, now a pile of bones.
Like a sheet of veneer,
Each a piece of my soul.

Old soul who falls down
Can't stop tripping on these
Old roads I go down
Get back up and I'm a
Old soul who falls down
Can't stop tripping on these
Old roads.

It's just a body of years that I leave all alone,
It's just a body of years, now a pile of bones.
Like a sheet of veneer,
Each a piece of my soul.
Like a pile of shit I can't seem to forget.
Just a body of years that I leave all alone.

Tell-tale diary pages
They unveil a ghost from the ages
When bodies of years were breaking from all of the weight
Of diary pages
Tell-tale diary pages

Wisdom Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : O My Heart
Folding my clothes
And I feel useless
Don't think I know
How to do this

Once I was told
But like any misfit
I spit on some good advice

Out in the cold
And tryin' to make fire
Two sticks and stone
Still got no fire

Once I was shown
But I was inside then
And spit on that good advice

Wisdom, wisdom
Where can I get some?
Wisdom, wisdom

On the payroll
And digging up ditches
Dollar is low
So are my wages

Once I was told
Just how to get rich
But I spit on that good advice

Wisdom, wisdom
Where can I get some?
Wisdom, wisdom

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Wisdom, wisdom

Where can I get some?
Wisdom, wisdom

I wanna trade my dimwits in for tips
Tips equipped with

Wisdom, wisdom

Take off my clothes
And I feel useless
Don't think I know
How to do this

Once I was told
But I liked to fidget
And miss out on good advice

Body Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : O My Heart
Take my eyes, take them aside
Take my face, and desecrate
My arms and legs
They get in the way

And take my hands, they'll understand
Take my heart, pull it apart
And take my brain, or what remains
And throw it all away
'Cos I've grown tired of this body
A cumbersome and heavy body

Take my lungs, take them and run
Take my tongue, go have some fun
And take the ears, take them and disappear
Take my joints, take them for points
Take my teeth, tear through my cheeks
And take the nose go and dispose
Oh would you go dispose, just go dispose

'Cos I've grown tired of this body
A cumbersome and heavy body

I've grown tired of this body
Fall apart without me body

Take my (eyes),
take them (aside)
Take my (face)
and desa (crate)
Arms and (legs)
Get in the (way)
Bodies (break)

I've grown tired of this body
Cumbersome and heavy body

Tired of this body
Fall apart without me body

Tired of this body
Cumbersome and heavy

Tired of this body
Fall apart without me

Tired of this body
tired of this body
tired of this body
cumbersome and heavy body

Heavy body
heavy body
heavy body

Ghosting Lyrics

Artist : MOTHER MOTHER
Album : O My Heart
I've been ghosting, I've been ghosting along
Ghost in your house, ghost in your arms

When you're tossing, when you turn in your sleep
It's because I'm ghosting your dreams

And this is why I have decided
To pull these old white sheets from my head

I'll leave them folded neat and tidy
So that you'll know I'm out of hiding

I've been ghosting, I've been ghosting along
Ghost in the world, ghost with no home

I remember, I remember the days
When I'd make you oh-so afraid

And this is why I have decided
To leave your house and home unhaunted

You don't need poltergeists for sidekicks

You don't need treats
And you don't need tricks
You don't need treats
You don't need tricks
You don't need no Halloween
You don't need treats
You don't need tricks
And you don't need me

Me

Hey, would it be so bad if I stayed
I'm just a ghost out of his grave
And I can't make love in my grave
I won't put white into your hair
I won't make noises in your stairs
I will be kind and I'll be sweet
If you stop staring straight through me

And this is why I have decided
To pull these old white sheets from my head

I'll leave them folded neat and tidy
So that you'll know I'm out of hiding

And this is why I have decided
To leave your house and home unhaunted

You don't need poltergeists for sidekicks

You don't need treats
And you don't need tricks
You don't need treats
You don't need tricks
You don't need no Halloween

You don't need treats
You don't need tricks
You don't need treats
You don't need no Hallows Eve

You don't need treats
You don't need tricks
And you don't need me
