Secret Mission Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Riviera

I once knew a woman, she put a curse on me
That eventually came true
She was a head on wreck on a mystic ride (you know the kind)
Amongst the visions and the ruins

Yeah, she was my unsuspecting secret mission

Leftover passion and desire
They only deepen the wound
But you must admit that the pain is sweet
Makes you howl at the moon

I guess you are my unsuspecting secret mission
Yes, you are my unsuspecting secret mission

Every eleven days or so
I get a message from you
Invisible ink on invisible paper
But I can smell her perfume

I guess I ain't your unsuspecting secret mission
You know you aren't my unsuspecting secret mission

Gary Indiana Blues Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Riviera

Turning like a hurricane
Sleep inside this junkyard train
It's cold and I'm loosing my covers
She won't take me any further south, than Gary Indiana (blues),
I never learned the easy out
Cracklin' chain and silver spoon
I shot a man for stealing food
He got caught with his gun on the table
Mother quit your cryin' now
Think of the sisters and brothers who never learned the easy out
Dancing to the midnight moon
Snowflake in my whisky too
Hear a knock on the door and some screaming
The eviction man is in town
Here's to the sisters and brothers, who never learned the easy out

Riviera Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Riviera

Just a little bit gunshy
With a criminal mind
She came in like an animal
She left like an innocent child

Now I'm stranded on empty
Across nation lines
Clear night like a rosary
Against a dashboard light

Driving to you, Riviera
How long can you run?

Now the moon and the pavement
Are like noon day light
Smokestacks and the gambling signs
Along the black horizon line

I once had a sister like you
Lost on the other side
You run because you have to
From the firing lines

Shot into you, Riviera
How long can you run?
How long can you run?

Ain't it strange how the ones you steal
They keep you alive
How she could make you feel
Like you never been high?
I can't remember what was real
Like a killer in denial
Careful to conceal every last line

Leading to you, Riviera
Deliver to you, the Riviera
How long can you run?
How long can you run?
How long can you run?

Universal Mom Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Riviera

You can't try to keep what you've given away
Oh, be still
Watch them, still, let them fall down
You're wasting your life trying to rescue the day
All your steel, iron will won't break this frozen ground
I know you're needing the time
Love has something for you let yourself take it
Oh my lady, tonight I want to sail to the moon and we're gonna make it
But I'm gonna need your help
You're head's somewhere else,
but you're wanting to stay
Helplessness, wordlessness, why do you let yourself worry this way?
So let there be shelter to make some mistakes
I will, you will, never control what we create
[Chorus]
But I'm gonna need your help
I'll tiller the soil if you tend to the bloom
Heaven flower, sun shower, let the earth move
We'll light up the world if you give us the room
Off that dress and smile to set the children of the world to rest
[Chorus]

Come On Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Riviera

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

Pick up your knee and your steep side.
The river is deep and running all night from your tender, moonlit lake.
I sit on the ground in the city light.
I live in the traffic and I sleep light.
Might I touch your illustrious face?

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

She's got the hydrogen bomb and the satellite
to move her around and keep her treated right.
She's gonna want to know my name.
The trouble is keen and the money is tight.
I've got the need and the cheap ride to take you with me into space.

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

The universe is on for you tonight.

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on.

Engine Light Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Riviera

Yes, I want to get ya but I can't y'all
'Till she gets around to what she came for
If you're into the sound then get your dance on
One you can't cut it with a chainsaw
I just want you next to me

Come on engine light in your heart
Turn on for me
Or at least flicker slowly
Love is gonna sound the alarm
You are my one
You are my only

Yes, I wanna catch her but she breeze by
Chasin' the wind and the winter sky
Engine in dreams, I'm pushing by
Droppin' my keys I'll let you take my ride
I just want you kissin' me

Come on engine light in your heart
Turn on for me
Or at least flicker slowly
Love is gonna sound the alarm
You are my one
You are my only

I know what you said but you can't mean by
Trouble with the man he ain't rich now
He's a serious dude he ain't Rip Torn
Prayin' for rain he get a hailstorm
I just want you messin' with me

Come on engine light in your heart
Turn on for me
Or at least flicker slowly
Love is gonna sound the alarm
You are my one
You are my only

Dirty Juice Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

You know I get a little peace of mind around that woman.
She's like driftin' and then finding the easy way out.
In case you didn't know she is my caterpillar, she's my butterfly rolled inside out.
Change in the autumn and the springtime.
All of her colors roll into one.

She's gonna shock me now, when she turn it loose.
She's got my ‘lectric house rockin' now, on her dirty juice.

You know I get a little peace of mind around that woman.
That woman is sure good ‘nuff to me.
Someone is always shaking her down, always scraping her pink limousine.
Taste her kisses sweet as molasses, from a moonbeam or a Christmas tree.

She's gonna shock me now, when she turn it loose.
She's got my ‘lectric house rockin' now, on her dirty juice.
She can't shut me down. I turn it loose.

Beauty Queen Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Beauty Queen from Mobile Alabama.
Busted for murder at a K-mart store.
She shot the conductor of a twenty piece orchestra for cheating on her.
Let out the dogs of war.
Found her freedom and moved to Pasadena to lay in the hot sun, forget the past.
Got off the bus without a penny on her.
Looking for love that wasn't gonna last.

She said, “Love is a passionate crime, where only the guilty survive. And the innocent, they fly away.”

Took in two stray dogs and a Scientologist.
Hoping to land a Hollywood score.
Enlarged her breasts after several turned down part requests, sold sunglasses on the Venice sea shore.
Saved up some money to buy a bed and breakfast.
Gave it away to some hard luck case.
Starting over when you should have been a success – Beauty Queen now has some lines on her face.

She said, “Love is a passionate crime, where only the guilty survive. And the innocent, they fly away.”

She headed off for Anchorage Alaska after falling for a small plane pilot.
He was lost at sea on their seventh anniversary.
Called in the coast guard but they couldn't find him.
But from their nest came two boys and a girl.
The girl plays the field. The boys are married.
Beauty Queen still spins that wheel but she can't forget about the guilt that she carries.

She said, “Love is a passionate crime, where only the guilty survive. And the innocent should shy away.”

Conquistadors Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Shakin' ‘em down and drunk on a holiday.
Dishin' them ‘lectric blues in an old school way.
Lucy and Glenda Jones and an old beef bone.
Drinkin' that whisky juice till they all alone.

They was blues conquistadors, soul conquistadors.

Old Betty Mae was movin' it and doin' it right.
Muddy and John Lee rockin' in the house of blue light.
Trouble and worry come back on another day.
Nellie's aunt Bee got down and began to pray.

They was blues conquistadors, soul conquistadors.

You got to mess around to feel right.
Then you slow it down sometimes, just enough to get me home.
You got me digging in a coal mine – diggin' in a blues mine.

Jesus gonna help me get there with them blues conquistadors, soul conquistadors.

Been twenty odd years since they burned that Checkerboard lounge.
Listen that Howlin' Wolf make a nasty sound.
Muddy and John Lee you know they passed away.
But the Gin room boogie still make you shake a leg.

Angela Dangerlove Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Every time you wake, dreams come tumbling down.
The careless love you take – I'm just another face in the crowd.
Your forgetful eyes keep driftin'.
Am I ever going to catch them now?

Angela Dangerlove, I'm yearning my life away.
Angela Dangerlove, I guess I got time to waste.

Ever since you've shaken me I'm knocked down under your spell.
Your disenchanted rhapsody plays me like a hollow shell.
These days go laughing by.
Am I ever gonna catch you now?

Angela Dangerlove, I'm yearning my life away.
Angela Dangerlove, I guess I got time to waste.

That I don't know you well is something I can't deny.
Just enough to dream, a fool by the trick of the light.
I came closer than you think.
I saw a tear fall from your eye.

Angela Dangerlove, I'm yearning my life away.
Angela Dangerlove, I guess I got time to waste.
I guess I got time to wait.

Drought Of 2013 Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

In 2010 I took her in and said I'd love her till
the sky has lost her blue and the rivers all run still.
Followed her till she came in and put her hand in mine.

Then we lived in green fields but now it's just a shame.
Cities which once grew like weeds, now shipwrecks on the plain.
750 days since a drop of rain.

Then came November and my lover hid up rye.
Drank it in the swelter as she laughed as the red sun died.
She said she was gonna leave me and head out to the sea-side.
Catch a cloud and ride.
Never such a thing.

Politicians blamed each other.
The preachers swelled with pride.
The wealthy killed each other and the poor gave up a smile.
‘Cause 750 days without a drop of rain made everyone the same.

Love Transmission Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

I wanna drive it on over to you.
I wanna take you there but the time ain't right.
Can't sail it on over to you.
I wanna glide it home but the wind ain't right.
Try to find a love that's strong and true, I wanna to fly ward now but the sun won't shine.

Love transmission – gonna grind them gears I'm gonna burn it out.
Love transmission – down low engineer gonna shake it out.
Love transmission – it's a new frontier gonna work it out.
Gonna make them changes.

I'm an outsider with the gold clipped wings.
I wanna shine for you but my battery died.
A lone blacksider but without the swing.
I wanna read to you by acetylene light.

Love transmission – gonna grind them gears I'm gonna burn it out.
Love transmission – down low engineer gonna shake it out.
Love transmission – it's a new frontier gonna work it out.
Gonna make them changes.

May I reawaken as your cup of tea.
Gonna satisfy you like the deep blue sea.
Reincarnated as love poetry.
Gonna sink into you like a submarine.

Love transmission – gonna grind them gears I'm gonna burn it out.
Love transmission – down low engineer gonna shake it out.
Love transmission – it's a new frontier gonna work it out.
Gonna make them changes.

Imaginary Ships Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Same wind that blew your house down
was the breath of life to me.
Cruel words brought your galaxy to the ground.
Made a universe for me.
You can't get what you're asking for now lady.
You only get what you pay for now baby.

Your crazy love will never make it in the end.
As your imaginary ships they come crashing in.
And they'll never fly again.

Long distance makes the heart grow cold.
Burns me up inside.
Slave emotions once were bought and sold.
I set free to shine.
So you don't know what you need these days,
only what can't be yours for taking.

Your crazy love will never make it in the end.
As your imaginary ships they come crashing in.
And they'll never fly again.

All your cities on the land will dissolve into the sea.
Maybe you and I will never understand why we were never meant to be.
So you don't know what the days are for.
You're lost in what you had before.

Your crazy love will never make it in the end.
As your imaginary ships they come crashing in.
And they'll never fly again.

ICU In Everything Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Well I'm finished counting.
Another game of hide and seek.
I hear you running.
I can feel your heartbeat now.
There ain't nothing that's gonna keep me from discovering.
You know I'm panting.
I'll drink from your loving spring.

Missing you is ecstasy
I see you in everything.
Wanting you ain't suffering.
I see you in everything.

Understanding
things ain't what they seem to be.
All my planning
left me on the wrong street now.
I don't need another one who's gonna shelter me.
So come on baby, the cabby is waiting and the meter is on.

Missing you is ecstasy
I see you in everything.
Wanting you ain't suffering.
I see you in everything.

And if we hesitate we might never know.
So what if a heart should break
we've been there before.
So let it grow.

I turn around
and then I find you
Lord have mercy
I was looking in the wrong direction
Spellbound
time reminds you –
now you better take it cause this loving is real

Missing you is ecstasy
I see you in everything.
Wanting you ain't suffering.
I see you in everything.

Lost Child Astronaut Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Traveled o'er 1000 spring times
across many distant lands.
Patiently she followed me everywhere.
The first love I ever had.

Shipwrecked on a secret island.
South where the warm winds blow.
There we thought we'd laugh forever
telling stories by the late two moon glow.

Lost child astronaut
crash at the speed of light and spin me off.
In my dragonfly without a care.
Blues child, forgotten child, I'll take you there.

Darkness and space surrounding.
Bending the light that fell my way.
Stuck at the edge of the galaxy,
whose radio waves they signal so faint.

Lost child astronaut
crash at the speed of light and spin me off.
In my dragonfly without a care.
Blues child, forgotten child, I'll take you there.

Peacemaker's Blues Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Time will play no games for free.
Like a speeding train rusting in the sea.
Maybe you are lost, maybe set free.

You and I ain't such good friends,
when peace on earth can't be found.
When angels can't keep us from shaking the ground.

Hey, you have to laugh out loud,
at those who are always so strong and right.
Now you don't know forgiveness without a fight.

Her Own Kinda Woman Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

I won't stand in her way
Spread her wings and she'll fly
You know it's hard to be free
When you slave to get by

This time ain't gonna let it get me down
It ain't too late to start again,
She said she wants to be her own kinda woman now...

I don't care what she says
Ain't no love when your poor
I can't get to my bed
She won't unlock the door.

This time ain't gonna let it get me down
It ain't too late to start again,
She said she wants to be her own kinda woman now...

On my way I roll on
Wipe the dust off my shoes
Greyhound bus run til dawn
Flower child dust my blues
I ain't gonna let it get me down
It ain't too late to start again,
When she's checking' in, I'll be checking' out
I'm going to find myself another friend.
She said she wants to be her own kinda woman now...

Cruel Fate Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

It's painful to realize
I've been on the back, I've been hypnotized a while
Troubled by the stack of un-traveled miles
I found out too little. I found out too late –
Cruel Fate

Memories of what went wrong,
Like a meteor returns to home,
Kinda steals away your life, away your song,
I'll sing mine anyway... Sing it.
So called destiny

But you won't let it go
Until you win Miss Universe
And then you won't reap what you sow,
There must be someone to blame, yeah
Cruel fate

If promises could punish you,
If thoughts could do damage to you
You can run but they'll follow you

But you won't let it go
Until you win Miss Universe
And then you won't reap what you sow,
There must be someone to blame,
We all suffer the same,
I found out too late. yeah
Cruel fate

All The Love You Need Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

Diamonds are forever, but people are more like little flowers
Diamonds are forever, but people are more like little flowers
Growing in the crash of the loud traffic noise of desperate western relationships
Past life regressions, romantic depressions, and midnight walks down repeating sunsets
You killed me with the truth of my relationshipwrecked ever since you sunk my battleship
This is the story of the whole world yeah everyone
Where we came from
Trying to get some
Shika dow shika dow dow
Shika dow shika dow shika dow dow...

She took my hand and said to me
"Let me let you in on a secret
"You've already got all the love you're needing
"In your heart, in your mind, in your imagination
"You've already got all the love you're needing"

We wanted each other so bad we wanted to possess
We wanted success in the area of undress
We wanted to own; we were so tired of renting
We wanted to attack; we were so tired of defending
Of moving on the motorcycles of life,
Without a seatbelt, without a tail on a kite
Diamonds are forever, but people are more like little flowers
More like September, October, November, December
More like the minutes to the hour

She took my hand and said to me
"Let me let you in on a secret
"You've already got all the love you're needing
"In your heart, in your mind, in your imagination
"Already got all the love you need"

I can't get enough, I can't pay enough
Don't mess with my conditional reality
Reward and punishment mentality
Always get the best of me
I wound you, you wound me
I need you, you need me
I want you, yeah, you want me

She took my hand and said to me
"Let me let you in on a secret
"You've already got all the love you're needin'
"In your heart, in your mind, in your imagination
"You've already got all the love you're needin'"

Hey yeah,
Already got all the love you needed
In your heart, in your mind, in your imagination
You've already got all the love you needed

Cashbox Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

You got love in the cash box baby, now give it to me
You got diamonds on the dresser, bring ‘em on here you see
Didn't your momma tell ya, it's better to give than to receive
I've been steeling your love. Bring it all night long.

Didn't I give you that golden necklace, what about that golden ring
I really do think you're precious but you don't trust me
Didn't your daddy tell ya, it's better to give than to receive,
I've been steeling your love. Bring it all night long.

You got something in the register baby, let's open that sucker up
Jewels on the nightstand, so luxurious
Didn't your brother tell ya, it's better to live than to be dust?
I've been steeling your love. Bring it all night long.

Fortune Teller Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

Rappers, troubadours, sneaking in the back door,
crazy fortune teller, drinking on the kitchen floor
all night
racing down Division at a hundred and three
her singing it was rapture, it was ecstasy.
Oh yeah

Madam Lisa of the stars
Messenger of hope
She was the messenger of
Guiding light and lovin inspiration
She could break you down
With sheer imagination
her old man was so cruel and vicious
one day went too far, and lord, he got his
Madam Lisa of the stars
Messenger of hope
Messenger of love

SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON
Makin' love in the setting sun
She's looking at me like I am the one,
wild and free but with nowhere to run
SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON
The Trapped, the broken, the innocent ones
Baby we were over before we'd begun
I'll be running for you till our freedom comes
Freedom come

When she pulled the trigger
I could hear it ring out for miles and miles
from the circus where we grew up
Your head turned to me
and I was caught up in the light
shaken by the sound.
The confession in her eyes
from when we met
And I was sentenced for life
And I know I'd never forget

Making love in the setting sun
You look at me like I am the one
wild and free but with nowhere to run
SHINE YOUR LIGHT ON
Trapped and broken, the innocent ones
Baby we were over before we'd begun
I'll be running for you till our freedom comes

Ever Since Ya Pulled Me Under Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

How can I know that it's real now
How can I know that it's real now

Don't wanna sleep cause you wanna play
Don't wanna talk cause you wanna kiss now
Get this party underway
Sugar shake down to the Earth let's sing now

Sweet soul dancing underway
The system the man can't hijack this now
Let feminine love rule the day
All that woman you can't resist now

Ever since ya pulled me under
You're the only one I'm dreaming of
Yeah you are the seventh wonder
Help me I'm fallin' in...

Take a look around the world today
Can you feel it in the air now
Revolution in the records that play
In the beats that they're shooting through the streets now
Tragic kings have lost their way
Its you and me and your mother that pays
Every soldier's coming on home
And they're playing it through the streets now
Every soldier's coming on home
Yeah, they're blasting it through the streets now

Ever since ya pulled me under
You're the only one I'm dreaming
Yeah you are the seventh wonder
Help me I'm fallin' in...

Lightning strike such a loud hit, shaking up the
disconnect to respect with a sexual switch
Turned on, shined on, showered on, flow: let's avoid a meltdown
Ever since ya pulled me under

Don't wanna sleep cause you wanna play
Don't wanna talk cause you wanna kiss now
Get this party underway
Sugar shake down To the Earth lets sing now

Sweet soul dancing underway
The system the man can't hijack this now
Let feminine love rule the day
All that woman you can't resist now

Ever since ya pulled me under
Take a look around the world today,
In the beats they're playin' in the streets now,
Revolution in the records that play, ever since ya pulled me under....

How Easy Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

I light your world, yes I painted it with sunshine
But all you see is tall gray clouds
You say your freedom is everything. You need time
But all you really want is out
I don't know why you're trying to make it hard now
Put your back up against the wall
Over time I'll forget about your charms
It ain't so hard for me to take the fall

You can't arrange your life so there ain't no pain and everything is fine
I see you hang your head down, can't believe you let yourself unwind
You're always calling on me
Wrap yourself around my shoulders
We make love like perfect strangers
Spill your glass and tell me that you're mine
how easy love decides.

You're acting cold I think you understand I need you
To give affection to keep me warm
I ain't trying to hold you down nor to bleed you
Or give you shelter from the storm.

You can't arrange your life so there ain't no blame and no one's left behind
I see you change your heart now, can't believe you let yourself unwind
I'm always falling for you
Wrap myself around your fingers
We make love like perfect strangers
Spill your glass and tell me that you're mine,
How easy love decides.

Spanish Highway Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

We'll never know the reasons
Things have ended up this way
You had to turn the page
But I'm still writing of my love for you –
On and on,
On and on

Just one kiss and then you knew
Still you left me without a trace
Where are you tonight?
Do you feel me wanting you,
Desire, makes my heart ache,
Makes my heart ache

Empty runway,
Now I know that there's life after you, over you
Spanish highway, driving back to what belongs to you
Longs for you

The first time that I fell for you
Your eyes read me the book of your heart
Speaking in recurring dreams,
Visions and mysteries of how,
You are my star

Empty runway,
Now I know that there's life after you, over you
Spanish highway, driving back to what belongs to you
Longs for you

Hey now my light is shining on
Every cloud is gone
Hey, everything is singing of your love for me
On and on...

Empty runway,
Now I know that there's life after you, over you
Spanish highway, driving back to what belongs to you
Longs for you

Blue Sky Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

We've waited long for this day to come
For all the midnight lights we've burnt into the morning sun
I can't wait to see your sweet mysteries
The stars, the sun, the universe, the galaxies
Fly home on your silver wings
With a new song for the world to sing
Light this candle, make it right

Yes you can change the world
True love discovers. She stands, and she won't back down
Oh yes you can change the world
There is no other one just
See if you can find blue sky

Gonna chase the dream, gonna set it free
Gonna make it real, gonna make it shine, gonna keep it grooving on
One small stepping stone
Baby we're not alone
Gonna take you further, higher, faster then you're outta sight
You've got my flame in your fire
You've got my twinkle in your eye,
Reaching for the distant light

Yes you can change the world
True love discovers. She stands, and she won't back down
Oh yes you can change the world
There is no other one just
See if you can find blue sky

Don't change too late, hey, yeah yeah
Or Fade away, hey, yeah yeah,
My stars won't wait

Oh yes you can change the world
True love discovers. When she stands and she won't back down.
There is no other one
Believe and you will find blue sky

Under A Silvery Moon Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

While under a silvery moon, a neon flower born of the desert
Love to touch her body of water, flicker in the morning light
While she was still in the mood,
shaken up like a deer in the headlights
Crosscut saw, whiskey and moonshine,
baby don't you spill the wine

While under a silvery moon, you can't find your way back home
Keep her shining on you, sweet surrender and you're gone
Free at last you're on you're own.

While under a silvery moon, sick and tired of the country and western
Get the El Dorado back on the pavement. Marguerita where'd ya learn to drive?
She said it's all about the rhythm and blues, pompadours, taxi confessions
The kind of speed that'll get you arrested, go on use it baby don't be shy

While under a silvery moon, you can't find your way back home
Keep her shining on you, sweet surrender and you're gone
Free at last you're on your own

Free at last you're on your own,
Surrender and you're done
Free at last you're on your own
Don't give up you're almost home

While under a silvery moon, Boxcar Wiley's guide to the galaxy
Jack Kerouac's jumping' on ecstasy chugging down the central line
Elvis and the hullabaloo, truck got busted just an hour ‘for midnight
Mississippi mud, the river is too wide...

While under a silvery moon, you can't find your way back home
Keep her shining on you, sweet surrender and you're gone
Free at last you're on your own

Yeah you're almost gone
Under a silvery moon now shine
Never gonna make it home
Don't give up you are almost home

Beautiful Rain Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : All The Love You Need

Desperate chances and accidental meetings
Spin out your life as your stars collide
And I
I forget your name

It was coming down like
Down like sheets of silver
Streets like wild rivers cry
Lightning, thunder
Flash across the building
Plays on our roof tonight

Sunshine
No it ain't for me
'Twas pouring on the day you came
Now that I'm yours
I finally learned to see
The beautiful rain

Spinnin' out I lost control
Don't turn away. I won't let go

Took our chances as
We were lost and drifting
Without words to say
When the storm comes with
Tales for all our children
How we crashed our cars that day

Sunshine
No it ain't for me
'Twas pouring on the day you came
Now that I'm yours
I finally learned to see
I'm drenched with gladness
Dance with you madly in the
The beautiful rain

She Didn't Want It Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

Like any edge you go down [?]
Far off the road of elegance
She'll put her head in the ground
Too late to repair
It's too late to run away
It's too late to remain
When you decide in the dark
You got to pay for it all through the day

And I can't seem to turn her head around
It's so funny when we can't back down [?]

She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want him

She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want him

He used to say that a lot
We had a lot of nothin'
You keep talkin about her, you tell him stop
Stop my from sayin something
If I were to take her down the street [?]
Tell her to buy me diamonds and gold
She say baby ain't this sweet
Ain't there someplace else we can go

And I can't seem to turn her head around
It's so funny when we can't back down [?]

She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want him

She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want him

Like any edge you go down [?]
Far off the road of elegance
She'll put her head in the ground
Too late to repair
It's too late to run away
It's too late to remain
When you decide in the dark
You got to pay for it all through the day

And I can't seem to turn her head around
Yeah it's so funny when we can't back down [?]

She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want him

She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want it (she didn't want it)
She didn't want him

There Is A Reason Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

There is a reason
For the nighttime
For the love time
All the day

There is a reason
For the sunshine
For the moonshine
On you and me

I see you walking I say baby don't be so sad
Every good thing will happen every good time
When there's a love that you can't understand
And you can't quite meet [?] your man
Take a look around the world and you will see

There is a reason
For the nighttime
For the love time
All the day

There is a reason
For the sunshine
For the moonshine
On you and me

All day long you been trying to hold Mary's hand
But she just turn away, pretend she don't understand
Hey, Mary, it's plain to see
Nature has brought you to me
You are my woman, and girl, I am your man, yeah

There is a reason
For the nighttime
For the love time

We could be together so happily

Love Besides The Weather Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

In the wind
Thirst
When I hunger
And when I bleed
When I bleed
Where in the thorns
Grown down deeply

For a pain
Or to [?] a life
Has crept too quickly or too slowly
Too tired
Of reasons
To [?]

Your love besides the weather
It all kept falling down
Like sheets of rain
And I look on your face
And I
Still want you

House Burn Down Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

Brother, are you thinkin'
Thinkin' for another man's wife

Brother, how you thinkin'
Thinkin' for another man's wife

Shadows you have casted
Turn the morning black as night

Hear screamin', brother
You won't keep it quiet

Streets are speakin' brother
'Bout the racket in the night

Shadows you have casted
Just might take your life

[?]
The pleasure when you're with her
Will give you pain and take your pride

Lonely shelter
Burns cold in the morning light

Take It All Back Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

Man works hard but I know he's fading fast
He's gonna rent through the wintertime
Decent work, give him your best
You're the only daughter that he ever had

Take it all back
When he's gone away
Take it all back
When he's gone away

He wants to be the person that you can't understand
He'd give you everything if you take his hand
Don't give it, honey, let him give his hand to you
It's the only thing that he'll ever do

Take it all back
When he's gone away
Will you take it all back
When he's gone away

I could only climb
I could only climb so high
I can only climb
I can only climb so high
For every young man wants to take somethin' outta me
Whoa, you been together, say you want another

Take it all back
When he's gone away
Take it all back
When he's gone away

Healing Train Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

The ? eye and the ? of love imagine
?'s loud and tragic jubilee
A sonata without ending which thou art playing for me
Church bell talk cast into the silent darkness to bid thee good night

Only a broken heart can drive this train
Only a broken heart can drive this train

Unconquered duty never fading still castled within the tower of my heart
Which thou commands with soft unbending will, I sing into the silent desert far

Only a broken heart can drive this train
Only a broken heart can drive this train

I wake in tears on the evening steps with starry blue dreamt of thy embrace
Anxious kissing goodbye of tender breath
A scarlet spirit hand to cup thy face

Only a broken heart can drive this train
Only a broken heart can drive this train
Only a broken heart can drive this train
Only a broken heart can drive this train
Drive it

Only a broken heart
Only a broken heart
Only a broken heart
Only a broken heart can drive this train

It's Over Again Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

Hey pretty lady I could make love to you over and over and over and over and over and over again
Never ever never ever never ever find in you a friend
Seem to be coming around to the same old place
Same old place again
Must have loved somebody once but I couldn't tell you where
Couldn't tell you where or when

Ooh, you really want me to be over again
And I really want to be alone again

Gonna do some time in purgatory to make amends
God wants me to grow some flowers in heaven

For every love every love every love that I ever had
That I ever had for pretend

Ooh, you really want me to be over again
Yes, I really want to be alone again

Are you still there

Brother John Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : From The Archives, Volume 1

Turn around for something better
Children give up don't you ever
Remember that the devil's clever

Brother John, where are you, why are you sleeping?
Brother John, why are you, where are you sleeping?

Take the light into your room
Cast a candle on your doom
Your master he is coming home soon

Brother John, how are you, why are you sleeping?
Brother John, why are you, why are you sleeping?

May your awakening be near
Heaven could be any place
Why not here?
Why not here?
Why not here?
Why not here?

Brother John, how are you, how are you sleeping?
Brother John, how are you, how are you sleeping?
Brother John, how are you, how are you sleeping?
Brother John, how are you, why are you sleeping?

Rocksteady Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

Opened me up and turned my life around
Let the sun shine in and shook me off the ground
Fallin' apart somehow you kept it together
Kept me from drifting in the stormy weather

Love like an artist let your juices flow
Like a scientist driven to know everything
Flood of tears will not break the levees
Rocksteady ever ready

Rocksteady
Ever ready
Rocksteady
So heavy
Girl, I'll love you
If you let me
Rocksteady
Ever ready

Ain't it funny how the times they change
Started out cool and ended up acting strange
We all want to get love and affection
No one wants to let down their protection

But you and I we've been through that
We accept each other as a matter of cold fact
Now we're gonna spend our whole lives together
Started out right and it's just getting better

Rocksteady
Ever ready
Rocksteady
So heavy
Girl, I'll love you
So just let me
Rocksteady
Ever ready

It took the two of us so long to get it right
Ain't gonna let it slip
It took the two of us so long to get it right
Ain't gonna let it slip

Let me in and give me your heart
Forget the past and get me a new start
Be who I am somehow you just let me
Rocksteady ever ready

Rocksteady
Ever ready
Rocksteady
So heavy
Girl, I'll love you
If you let me
Rocksteady
Ever ready

Rocksteady (Open me up and turn my life around)
Ever ready
Rocksteady (Let the sunshine in and shook me off the ground)
So heavy
Girl, I love you (Flood of tears will not break the levees)
So just let me
Rocksteady (Rocksteady)
Ever ready (Ever ready)

Beautiful Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

The first time that I fell to pieces
I was strung out over the moon wanting you
I was confused by your shifting faces
By the changing key of your tune
Waiting for your call to be my mistress
My paramour, oh you'd be my own

You're still beautiful when you're wrong
Still so beautiful when you're wrong
You turn me on and now you're stringing me along
Still so beautiful
Oh, so beautiful

One day the laws of love and justice
Will bring you to the prison I call my home
You can't forget the past without getting busted
Now you have to find a way on your own
So now karma will be sneaking up behind you
And your sorry fate will ultimately find you

You're still beautiful when you're wrong
Still so beautiful when you're wrong
You turn me on and now you're stringing me along
You're so beautiful
Still so beautiful

Though she refuse to hear me may I
Telepathically remind the one
That I long for her as the sailors for the sea
Or the tall trees for the morning sun
Yeah, I wanna be your only one

Underneath every late night barrio door
I'll be passed out drunk the next time you find me
I'll be sure not to wander off too far girl
Won't be the last time that you blind me
You left me up a creek in a storm
Yes, I needed you and you were gone

You're still beautiful when you're wrong
Still so beautiful when you're wrong
You say you never meant to cause me any harm or confusion
So I'm leaving
Oh, this is my freedom song
So beautiful when you're wrong

Muhammad Ali Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady
(originally by Tom Russell)

From Louisville Kentucky name of Cassius Clay
Fought my way out to see another day
Seven to one odds against ol' Sonny Liston
Took my title from me but I kept on my mission

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
You know you've got me dancing
I'm the champion of the ring
You know my name
Is Muhammad Ali

No George Foreman ever called me a quitter
No Viet Cong ever called me a nigger
Threw my gold medal in the Ohio river
I won for the land of the free. Bumaye

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
You know you've got me dancing
I'm the champion of the ring
You know my name
Is Muhammad Ali

Yes my mind is free and all your love I'll never forget
Yes in time you'll see
I am the most beautiful
I am the most beautiful fighter yet

I know my destination and I know the truth
Yes I am the Louisville Lip that you've been talking to
All my life I've been dancing, like a rooster I will sing
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee
You know you've got me dancing
I'm the world champion of the ring
You know my name
Is Muhammad Ali

After Gold Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

Lady, I'm feeling kinda desperate
I don't get to see the real you inside
Driving blind is reckless, I can't help it
I can't read your mind
I really don't mean to push but I need to see the truth tonight

Hide your gold beneath the surface
And your shimmering light
You say you'll never love someone
You say you need to survive

Baby, I just want to know you

Angel dancing in the shadows in the madness of your masquerade
All this tenderness is hollow
I can't follow if you won't let me stay
Do you wanna give me yourself or do you want to give yourself away

After gold beneath the surface
And your shimmering light
You say you'll never love someone
You say you need to survive

Baby, I just want to know you

After gold beneath the surface
And your shimmering light
You say you'll never love someone
You say you need to survive

Baby, I just want to know you

Back To The Garden Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

Take me back into your circle of trust
Take me back into your garden
Girl you know I can't live without your touch
Girl I can't live without your pardon

You hooked me as a soul fisherwoman
Knocked me down as a fighter for justice
Ran out of ammunition as a marksman
Grooving with your charming charming charming

Then at the end of the tracks we pulled off
Fired up the purring engines as we sit back
Dancing slow and we ain't pretending
Woman what I got for you is never ending

Oh oh oh oh
I said what I said to get by
I did what I did to survive

Oh oh oh oh
I did what I did to survive
I said what I said to get by

Built like a bank that the government paid off
Relaxing to the waxing moon we made off
Figured out the crime but the cops were paid off
Just another Saturday night, we should've stayed out

Roller skating on the edge of destruction
Politician on the take rules the nation
Didn't make a sound as a spirit broadcaster
Didn't break a rhythm with the new jam masters

Oh oh oh oh
I said what I said to get by
I did what I did to survive

Oh oh oh oh
I did what I did to survive
I said what I said to get by

Take me back into your circle of trust
Take me back into your garden
Girl you know I can't live without your touch
Girl I can't live without your pardon

Once you fall out of the circle of trust
There's no getting back into the garden
Now you're gonna have to live without her touch
Now you're gonna have to live without her pardon

Had a lot of hope but not a lot of harmony
She could hear a hit song and I was her melody
She could break a sweat jumping on the dance floor
She could sell you world peace at the mall bookstore

Oh oh oh oh
I said what I said to get by
I did what I did to survive

Oh oh oh oh
I did what I did to survive
I said what I said to get by

Take me back into your circle of trust

I Hate It When You're Gone Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

Hey hey
Rappin' with ya is all I got to get by
Talkin' with ya is all I got to get by
When you call
When ya callin' me baby
Conversation
All your chit-chat is all I got to get by
To keep me from missing your kiss and your smile
Your back and your neck and your lips and your hips and your sultry eyes

Girl you know I hate it
I hate it when you're gone

I can't fall asleep with the television on
Words I left unsaid weigh on my mind
I can't leave my bed and I can't seem to unwind
Oh baby you must have left with my peace of mind

Girl you know I love it
I love it when you're home
You know we'll get it right when we're all alone
Drive all night in the rain just for your smile
Don't drift on don't move on let's just stay awhile
Take it easy on me baby and stay awhile

Hey hey
Rappin' with ya is all I got to get by
Talkin' with ya is all I got to get by
To keep me from missing your kiss and your smile
Your back and your neck and your lips and your hips and your sultry eyes

Stars don't come and play out at night
The world doesn't turn in the usual way and
I can't keep myself upright
Can't keep myself upright

Hey hey
Oh no I hate it when you're gone
Don't you know I hate it when you're gone
Girl you know I love it when you're home
Talkin' with ya
Rappin' with ya is all I got to get by

Conversation, elaboration is all I need to get by
Oh, I hate it when you're gone
Girl I hate it when you're gone
You know I love it when you're home
Girl I hate it when you're gone

People Train Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

Don't wanna ride on no people train
I wanna leave when I wanna
I want to arrive in my automobile
I wanna leave when I want

Don't wanna ride on no people train
I wanna leave when I wanna
Don't mind if I die in my automobile
I wanna leave when I want

My ex put sugar in the gas tank
Put a key to my two-tone sparkle paint
Kicked her spiked metal heels on my wood dash
Said I owe ya but I'm outta cash

Then we went to overheatin' from a cold start
Fillin' 'er up with premium and a light heart
Then it was time to put the shifter into overdrive
Feel the mighty mighty power of the 'lectraglide

Don't wanna ride on no people train
I wanna leave when I wanna
I want to arrive in my automobile
I wanna leave when I want

Don't wanna ride on no people train
I wanna leave when I wanna
Don't mind if I die in my automobile
I wanna leave when I want

Motorcycle, twenty-wheeler, or a limousine
In the slow lane on the back streets
Don't you know we're just headed for a breakdown
The whole world headed for a breakdown

Ain't green 'cause I'm addicted to the fossil fuel
Any speed I can't get there too soon
Red light, city traffic, one headlight
Black gold, canary in a coal mine

Don't wanna ride on no people train
I wanna leave when I wanna
I want to arrive in my automobile
I wanna leave when I want

Don't wanna ride on no people train
I wanna leave when I wanna
Don't mind if I die in my automobile
I wanna leave when I want

Beast Of Burden Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady
(originally by The Rolling Stones)

I'll never be your beast of burden
My back is broad, but it's a-hurtin'
All I want is for you to make love to me

I'll never be your beast of burden
I walk for miles, my feet are hurtin'
All I want is for you to make love to me

Am I hard enough
Am I rough enough
Am I rich enough
But I'm not too blind to see

I'll never be your beast of burden
So let's go home girl and draw the curtains
Music on the radio saying come on, baby, make sweet love to me

Yeah all your sickness I can suck it up
Throw it all on me, baby, I can shrug it off
There's one thing, baby, I just can't understand
You keep tryin' to tell me I ain't your kind of man

Ain't I rough enough
Ain't I tough enough
Ain't I rich enough, in love enough
Please, please
Please, please

Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty little girl
Pretty, pretty, such a pretty, pretty little girl
Come on, baby, please, please, please

You can put me out, out on the street
Put me out with no shoes on my feet
But put me out, put me out, put me out of misery
Yeah

I'll never be your beast of burden
Don't need no fussin'
Don't need no nursin'
All I want is for you to make love to me

I'll never be your beast of burden
I'll never be your beast of burden
Never (never) never (never)
Never, never, never

Fake Diamond Kind Lyrics

Artist : BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS
Album : Rocksteady

She never says what she means
She's the fake diamond kind
Now she's staring right through me with her cold gray eyes
Shooting right through me
Is it a truth or a lie? 'cause
Friendship and love, they go together
Friendship and love, they belong together

Now everybody knows that
She's the fake diamond kind
A little rough around the edges but so shiny on the inside
All she needs is a little love, a little sunshine
To keep her soul from crying out loud
So let her soul cry out loud

She never says what she needs 'cause
She's her own diamond mine
Shakes it up, sets me free, yeah she make the whole world right
She's the only one I need
Yeah, she's my heart's delight 'cause
Friendship and love, they go together
Friendship and love, they belong together

Friendship and love
Friendship and love
Friendship and love

The Oaf Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

Who'd you drag around my door
If I keep it cracked they won't be there no more
And who'd you leave along the way
Leave 'em there and don't come back today
Now who's the one that treats you right
Yeah, leave 'em there and don't come back to fight
Now who's the lad that wants to be
It never was and it just can't be me

My luck is wasted
I'm on the run somewhere
My luck is wasted
I'm on the run somewhere

Throw the rocks and break the glass
I'll get down on my knees and kiss your ass
Cause you're the one that be in my dreams
It never was and isn't what it seems

My luck is wasted
I'm on the run somewhere
My luck is wasted
I'm on the run somewhere

Now who's the dragon at my door
I shot it now, it don't come back no more

Gonna fire up someday
My luck is wasted
I'm on the run somewhere
Feel my hand wrapped around
My luck is wasted
I'm on the run somewhere

That Song Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

So I always get nostalgic with that song
But in my room it's forced
It has to be in some car across the street
And I always catch the back of your head in a crowd
Just don't turn around
It's never you and you ruin those memories
And those photos are great if I catch them with the side of my eye
But if I stare, it just turns into you and me
We're just standing there

And now its over
Would you hear me
Scream at the top of my lungs
And when you go there
Would you hear me
Scream at the top of my lungs

So I always fool my friends and we head down there
You think that we are en route
We just drove past your old house and you weren't there
And I'm always great when I'm hanging with your buds and they lie
They think that I'm just fine
Its always been that way, just a pocketbook Brando

And when you hold him
Would you hear me
Scream at the top of my lungs
You love my whisper
But did you hear me
Scream at the top of my lungs

So you crank that song
And it might sound doom
So just leave the room
While I sit and stare
Cause this is rare
I really love that tune
Man, I love that song
I really love that song
I love that song

So when you go there
Would you hear me
Scream at the top of my lungs
And when you're hated
Would you hear me
Scream at the top of my lungs

So you crank that song
And it might sound doom
So just leave the room
While I sit and stare
Cause yeah, that's rare
I really love that tune
Man, I love that song
I love that song
I love that song

Look What I Found Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

It's fully operational
We don't even have to sell
I rooked it but what the hell
It's someone else's soul, oh well

It's stolen but it's okay
If integrity says no way
Well now it's here to stay
So let's go outside and play

Well I suppose so
Well I never did really want to know
How can you walk around
With your feet up off the ground
How can you steal their sound
Keep your ears below the ground
Take a look around
Look what I found

No one will ever notice
That all your shit is bogus
And never go for the fear
That someone like me might hear
This schtick is gettin' thinner
But you'll come out a winner
Cheque's already in the bank
You've forgotten who to thank

And weak is what you bring
And what I need is the real thing
How can you walk around
With your feet up off the ground
How can you steal their sound
Keep your ears below the ground
Take a look around
Look what I found

Well I suppose so
Wonder if we'll ever know
How can you walk around
With your feet up off the ground
How can you steal their sound
Keep your ears below the ground
Take a look around
Look what I found

Blown Wide Open Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

So I'm all surrounded
By the things I thought I put away
And I'm all surrounded
By the things I thought I put away
And there's a pile in the closet
That's where I threw some yesterday
Maybe under the rug
That's where I swept some the other day

So the mess is drawing forces
Outside I hear them say
Just come out with your hands up
So we can blow you away
And I walk out the door
Get blown wide open
By the things I put away
And I wasn't even warned
Just blown wide open
Now the mess is where I lay

So I'm all surrounded
By the things I thought I put away
So I'm all surrounded
By the things I thought I put away
And if I'm a slob
Well I never looked at it that way
Irresponsible
Well you're not the first to say

But I told her I'm sorry
I never wanted it this way
Yeah, I still need her
But the mess won't go away

And I walk the door
Get blown wide open
By the things I put away
And I'm out on the porch
Just blown wide open
Now the mess is where I lay

Yeah, blown wide open
Blown wide open
Blown wide open
Blown wide open
The gun's still smokin'
Blood keeps flowin'
Blown wide open
Blown wide open
While she's going

All surrounded

How Would You Know Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

I want you in the wrong way
What's tomorrow if you've got today
And if you subscribe to my way
You erase all this anyway
Out in the mountains and granola
That lies a little bit east of all ya

Hold out your hands
Oh, such little hands
Lie to your man
Stay wise to the plan

So drivin' makes no sense
Cause I don't even have a license
We could walk and get as far
It just might take a little bit longer
There's your dealer on the corner
Just to give himself a boner

Hold out your hands
Stay wise to the plan

If what you got is what you need, hell
Then I don't wanna hear the rest
And if you ever had a thing to sell
Then you know what you got

Why would you care
If it's everywhere
Don't leave me here
I'm always alone
But how would you know

I fell down the shaft
Nothing to grab onto
Pull me up
Just like long ago
But how would you know
How would you know

So you need me for the wrong things
Now you've got yourself a bird that sings
And you left me for your owner
Out in the mountains and granola

Hold out your hands
Oh, such little hands

If what you got is what you need, hell
Then I don't wanna hear the rest
And if you ever had a thing to sell
Then get rid of the lie
If what you got is what you need, hell
Then I don't wanna hear the rest
And everybody's got a thing to sell
Don't need what you got

Oh My Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

You say I'm obsessive
I don't want to hear
Overly possessive
Who, when, and where
When your arms go round another
I'll turn my back, why bother

Forget the importance
Of what I mean to you
I'll drown all the rodents
And chase after you
Well I've made my mistakes and know it
I need a chance to blow it

Oh, oh my
Who's stolen my right

Am I getting greedy
For what's already mine
I need all the rations
I won't stand in line
And I'll scale the wall
Only if you feed the rope
But I'll slip and fall

Oh, oh my
Who'll ever believed and why
Oh, oh my
I'm last in line

Say I'm obsessive
I don't want to hear
Overly possessive

Under The Lighthouse Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

Down here under the lighthouse
Upstairs, I see for miles
Keep my name under the white-out
And just let me miss you all the while, yeah

Now I sit here with your letter
It's pushin' hard on my brain
You think they should shrink it, yeah
Baby, I think that's insane

I know you would've left me anyway
Well, I'll just bow my head
I swear you might've left me anyway
So I'll leave you instead, yeah

When I told you that I'm sorry
You told me that I'm full of fear
But when the music is just too loud
Well it's not your voice I hear, yeah

Well you would've left me anyway
So I'll just bow my head
I swear you might've left me anyway
So I'll leave you instead

Be alone
Let me bow my head
Cause I'd rather be alone
Be alone
Be alone
Be alone

Fall Through The Cracks Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

So I won't hear
Unless you tell me to
And I won't see
Unless I look for you
Cause my opinions
They don't mean that much to me
So if they're clashing
I'll trash them happily

Let me fall through your cracks again
But you only notice now and then
Cause I've made this mistake before
I was only comin' back for more
So close your door
I'm back for more

So don't be fooled
By what you see
Cause I fully realise
What's happening to me, yes

Apologies
Well I don't know what else to say
It was never meant to be
But I had fun anyway

Yeah, let me fall through your cracks again
And you only notice now and then
Well I've made this mistake before
I was only comin' back for more
So close your door
I'm back for more

Let me fall through your cracks again
But you only notice now and then
So I've made this mistake before
I was only comin' back for more
So close your door
I'm back for more
Close your door
I'm back for more
Close your door
I'm back for more

Waste Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

So I knew you weren't faking
About your dreams
Because when you're waking
Everything's what it seems
I know you got roses
You want to throw on my grave
But all the time you
You can't seem to stray

Oh, doesn't it hurt
To see me reaching
Words and excuses lame
Well it's time for bleeding

So mama, don't hit the fruit jar
I'd rather see you hit me
Just cause you go too far
And I'll lose what's real
You'll out fine, babe
Like father, like son
I was wasted at the forkroads
I'm too old to run

Oh, doesn't it hurt
To see me reaching
Words and excuses lame
Well it's time for bleeding

So if it's pity I need
Or rejection, I bleed
Cause I never
Cause I never
Cause I never
Asked for nothing

So mama, don't hit the fruit jar
I'd rather see you hit me
Just cause you go too far
And I'll lose what's real

Oh, doesn't it hurt
To see me reaching
Words and excuses lame
Well it's time for bleeding

By The Way Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

So you would be my one bad thing
Never when you tried
I let the fire burn out again
And then inside

So let my tears be realized
Before my eyes are turned
And every lie I've tried before
Won't work no more, I've learned

Drowning or bathing
I've found out
What you meant
By the way

Knowledge unexpectedly
That you and me could be
Quiet the voices in my head
Warm my bed tonight
So you could be my one again
Never when you tried

Drowning, bathing
I've found out
What you meant
By the way

Between You And I Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

So now she's on her way
Home from work, alone for dinner
You close the door to the microwave
Underneath that phone that just won't ring
Sittin' on the bus
Stare a hole right through the floor
Listening to the squeaky door
Open and close at a stop that's never mine
They say if it's well enough
Just leave it alone and they would never
Think to call your bluff
The lie believed till you're standing all exposed

Oh, you'll confide
And all those fools will slide
Between you and I
Between you and I

I've seen that look before
On someone else
Years ago and it's come
Around again
Excuse me while I place
The blame on you, the game has conjured now
And it never was your fault
The wind just seemed to carry the spit your way

My time is spent
So all those years can blend
Between you and I
Why'd you confide
Now all your friends can slide
Between you and I
Between you and I
Between you and I
Between you and I

The effort to forget
Nature's moving far too slow
The effort to forget
I still recall the effort to forget

Prayer Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

Farewell old friend
A season ends
And your conscience lends
All your lies at hand
Because you're a star
And you'll go far
You stand in the flame
Just to make a name

You glance at the ceiling
Buy another round
Lonely, but for feeling
I can hang around, yeah
I can hang around, yeah

The clock I know
It takes time to fall
As the fall I'll do
If only for you
And the chance to run
Has left me spun
Run around the core
Of what I need you for

The disaster
And after all
I need you to remind myself
But it's my fault
It's not my fault
I can't hear the pain
Well pause no more
I've never prayed before, yeah
Never prayed before

You glance at the ceiling
Buy another round
Lonely but for feeling
That I can hang around
I can hang around

Overemphasizing Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : In Loving Memory Of...

Once was a man a rage
All foreign tales onstage
It turns a page

All through this time, not grown
She'll go through life alone
Don't answer the phone

Overemphasizing
The time we spent
Oh, the time you lent
Overemphasizing
Oh, the less you gave
And I forgot to save

Not long ago, we moved
Still much was left to prove
I was removed

Overemphasizing
The love we made
Well I forgot to save
Overemphasizing
All the locks you gave
That I forgot to save

Once was a man a rage
All foreign tales on stage

Inhale Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

Cities crumble into forests
The black tops crack and float away
Change your mind and inhale
And every now and then it's broken
We'll fix it all up in the end
Change your mind and inhale

We all want to get away
And walk that country mile
If we're all gonna fade away
Let's go out in style

Change your mind and inhale
Change your mind and inhale

Of all the manufactured meat
Consumed under most human needs
We're overdue
And all the pretty folks are plastic
And all the lines are drawn so drastic
Like airplane glue

We all want to get away
And walk that country mile
If we're all going to fade away
Lets go out in style

You see
You're mine
You'll see
You're mine

Can't you see
You're blind
Can you see
You're blind

We all want to get away
And leave it all for a while
If we're all gonna fade away
Lets go out in style

We all want to get away
And walk that country mile
And if were all going to fade away
Lets go out in style

Change your mind and inhale
Change your mind and inhale

Undersold Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

All the lies and all the kisses
And all the naive things he disses
Are gone now watch them fade out
It's not too hard to hang with losers
As opposed to fakers
And used to model debutantes and boozers

Oh would you ever want to bleed?
Oh will you surrender to the needing
Of someone somehow

Lay your lovers and mothers and fathers in the road
Roll right over their bodies
If they left you undersold

Undersold

Walk right through the front door and slam it
Head straight for the liquor cabinet
And bitch about
Your colleagues
Loneliness and emptiness and happiness
We're powerless until we notice
We're useless

Oh would you ever want to sin
Oh take me back to where we both begin
Simply somehow

Lay your lovers and mothers and fathers in the road
Roll right over their bodies
If they left you undersold

Lay your bullies and bosses and best friends in the road
Roll right over their bodies
If they left you undersold

Lay your lovers and mothers and fathers in the road
Roll right over their bodies
If they left you undersold

Undersold
Undersold
Undersold
Undersold
Undersold

Knee Deep Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

Make love by the window
With the toffs
And before you can jump
I'll push you off
And I'm knee deep with no sleep at all
When you're on my shoulder
I'm knee deep and I can't sleep it off

Clench my fists
Bite my lip
'Til it goes away
And all this blood
And all these days
Dry up and blow away

Look over yonder in my past
Where everything good will always pass
And I'm knee deep with no sense at all
When you're on my shoulder
I'm knee deep and I can't kiss it off

Clench my fists
Bite my lip
'Til it goes away
Madness comes
And always does
And always finds a way

Sadness comes
And always finds a way

Understand
Reprimand
When you're on my shoulder
But you'll always fly
Always fly away
Ya away

Clench my fists
Bite my lip
'Til it kills the pain
And all this blood
All these days
Dry up and blow away

All my past
All my hate
Always finds a way

Always finds

Everything Is Fine Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

So you hate me if I'm open
But you love me when I'm closed
I used to be outspoken
Only on the phone

Used to keep my letters
Underneath your bed
Underneath you dress was
Someone else's head

If once was enough for you
That's alright
If you can keep it closed
Then everything is fine

Everything is fine

Once you used to hold me
Up above the din
And I would say
Baby, watch the hell begin

And now you want to keep me
Down with all the pigs
And I say Baby, You're the only one I dig

If once was enough for you
That's alright
If you can keep them closed
Then everything is fine
Everything is fine

Everything is fine

You used to keep my letters
Underneath your bed
Underneath your dress was
Someone else's head

All By Design Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

We were on our way home
On the right bus
I just want to ask the driver
If it's not too much fuss
To drop me off at the old lady's
And pick me up tomorrow
If you could, If you could

It's all by design
To keep me from losing my mind

We were on our way there
It's just around the corner
I caught a funny stare and I started a fight with the owner

Well it's the whole nine yards
And I fold all my cards in your face
And I love what is real
And I loved you my dear
Before you were replaced
You were replaced

And it's all by design
To keep me from losing my mind

I saw you over there
Act like I don't care
'Cause I've never seen something that made me stare

So we run through your backyards
And throw all my best cards in your face
In your face
Because I love what is real
And I loved you my dear before I was replaced
I was replaced

And it's all by design
To keep me from losing my mind
It's all by design to keep us from losing our minds

We were on our way home
On the right bus
I just want to tell the driver
Don't bother 'cause it's a bust

Mistake Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

As I sift and drift in bullshit
That plagues from day to day
Would you ever really notice
That I've gone away

And I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
I'm over the safety
Over the phone calls
Over the rage
What a mistake

When you've lost the stones to throw
These I found to make a fire
And all the lonely souls that say so
Get fired

And I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
(Can't seem to get out of the way)
I'm over the safety
Over the phone calls
Over the rage
What a mistake

What a mistake
What a mistake
What a mistake
What a mistake

And I've never been lost
I've never been found
And it makes no difference
If I'm around
(Can't seem to get out of the way)
It's never been words
It's never been actions
It's never been promises that I've never kept
(Just can't seem to get out of the way)

I'm over the wall
Over the hill
Over at your place
Just can't seem to get out of this
Pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling on the threads
I'm always pulling
What a mistake

Mistake

As I sift and drift in bullshit
That plagues from day to day
Would you ever really notice
I'm gone away

Ladylike Lyrics

Artist : BIG WRECK
Album : The Pleasure And The Greed

So when she lays down
It'll be
With me
She'll lay down with me

And when she walks out
It'll be
On me
She'll walk out on me

When she kneeling
It'll be
For me
She's kneeling for me

And if I need you to be secure
It's cause I'm not
You're so ladylike and more

When she focused
It'll be
On me
She's focused on me

And if she walks away
It'll be
With me
She's walking with me

And if I need you to be secure
It's cause I'm not
You're so ladylike and more

If she wishes
It'll be
On me
She's wishing on me

And when she's hopeless
It'll be
Lord, she's hopeless with me

And if I need you to be secure
It's cause I'm not
You're ladylike
I need you to be secure if I'm not
You're ladylike and more
