Dani California


Getting born in the state of Mississippi

Papa was a copper

And Mama was a hippie



In Alabama she would swing a hammer

Price you gotta pay when you break the panorama



She never knew that there was

Anything more than poor



What in the world does your

Company take me for



Black bandana sweet Louisiana

Robbin' a bank in the state of Indiana



She's a runner, rebel and a stunner

On her merry way sayin'

Baby watcha gonna



Looking down the barrel of a

Hot metal 45

Just another way to survive



California rest in peace

Simultaneous release

California show me your teeth

She's my priestess; I'm your priest



She's a lover baby and a fighter

Shoulda seen it comin' when

It got a little brighter



With a name like Dani California

The day was gonna come

When I was gonna mourn ya



A little loaded she was

Stealin' another breath

I love my baby to death



Who knew the other side of you

Who knew what others died to prove

Too true to say goodbye to you

Too true to say say say



Push the fader, gifted animator

One for the now and eleven for the later



Never made it up to Minnesota

North Dakota man was a gunnin'

For the quota



Down in the Badlands

She was savin' the best for last



It only hurts when I laugh

Gone too fast


Snow ((Hey Oh))


Come to decide that the things that I tried

Were in my life just to get high on



When I sit alone come get a little more known

But I need more than myself this time



Step from the road to the sea to the sky

And I do believe what we rely on



When I lay it on

Come get to play it on

All my life to sacrifice



Hey oh listen what I say oh

I got your

Hey oh listen what I say oh



When will I know that I really can't go

To the well one more time to decide on



When it's killing me

When will I really see

All that I need to look inside



Come to believe that I better not leave

Before I get my chance to ride



When it's killing me

What do I really need

All that I need to look inside



The more I see the less I know

The more I like to let it go…hey oh



Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder

Where it's so white as snow



Privately divided by a world so undecided

And there's nowhere to go



In beneath the cover of another perfect wonder

Where it's so white as snow



Running through a field where all my tracks will

Be concealed and there is nowhere to go



When to descend to amend for a friend

All the channels that have broken down



Now you bring it up

I'm gonna ring it up

Just to hear you sing it out



Step from the road to the sea to the sky

And I do believe what we rely on



When I lay it on

Come get to play it on

All my life to sacrifice


Charlie


All aboard……stitch in time

Get yours……got mine

In a minute……I'll be there

Sit tight……get square

You could do at the Hippodrome

Slide back……trombone

Anybody got a TV tome

That's right……unknown



When I pick up on that smell

Pick it up and run like hell

Little woman save me some

Better get up on your run



So much more than

Charlie's wakin' me

To my core and

Charlie's shakin' me

And tell my story

And Charlie's makin' me

And Charlie's makin' me smile

Oh oh now



Everybody……Do the twist

Get the message……on Flea's fist

Move around like a scientist

Lay down……get kissed

Big picture and it never lies

Big daddy……will advise

Eveready……in disguise

Sunset………sunrise



My heart……your skin

This love……I'm in

We don't arrive without a surprise

Your're right……I'm wrong

Be free…………belong

Intimate sight has come in to light



All I ever wanted to

Was pick it up and run with you

Slip into a summer spell

Double up and run like hell


Stadium Arcadium


Bells around St. Petersburg

When I saw you



I hope I get what you deserve

And this is where I find



Smoke surrounds your perfect face

And I'm falling



Pushing a broom out into space

And this is where I find a way



The stadium arcadium

A mirror to the moon

I'm forming I'm warming

State of the art

Until the clouds come crashing



Stranger things have happened

Both before and after noon

I'm forming I'm warming

Pushing myself

And no I don't mind asking

Now



Alone inside my forest room

And it's storming



I never thought I'd be in bloom

But this is where I start



Derelict days and the stereo plays

For the all night crowd

That it cannot phase

And I'm calling



Tedious weeds that the media breeds

But the animal gets what the animal needs

And I'm sorry



And this is where I find



Rays of dust that wrap around

Your citizen



Kind enough to disavow

And this is where I stand


Hump de Bump


40 detectives a week

40 detectives strong

Takin' a stroll down Love Street

Strollin' is that so wrong

Can I get my co-defendant



Hump de bump doop bodu

Bump de hump doop bop

Hump de bump doop bodu



Bump de hump doop bodu

Hump de bomp doop bop

Bump de hump doop bodu



Bump bump



Must have been a hundred miles

Any of a hundred styles

It's not about the smile you wear

But the way we make out



When I was an all aloner

Nothin' but a two-beach comber

Anybody seen the sky?

I'm wide awake now



Workin' the beat as we speak

Working the belle du monde

Believe in the havoc we wreak

Believin', is that so wrong

Can I get my co-dependent



Listen to me what I said

Try to get it through your head

A little bit of circumstance

A chance to make out



Livin' in a citadel

It's hard enough to be yourself

Waiting for the bell to toll

And I am wide awake now


She’s Only 18


She's only 18

Don't like the Rolling Stones

She took a short cut

To being fully grown



She's got that mood ring

A little sister rose

The smell of Springsteen

A pair of pantyhose



This talking picture show

Is leaking from a silhouette

She said my man you know

It's time to get your fingers wet

Your hustle's busted when

You can't afford a cigarette

The last I heard from you

You were screaming

"Handle it'



Knock the world right off its feet

And straight onto its head

The book of love will

Long be laughing after you are dead

Fascinated by the look of you

And what was said

Make a play for all the

Brightest minds and light will shed



I heard some P-Funk

Out on the road again

To get your head shrunk

Is what I recommend



It's in your bloodline

A perfect Frankenstein

Out on that lone pine

I'm gonna make you mine



It's understood you wrap

Your voodoo right around my neck

You've got some glitter on your

Kitty at the discotheque

I put my lovin' in your oven

Not a head to check

The last I heard from you

You were screaming

"Resurrect'


Slow Cheetah


Waking up dead inside of my head

Will never never do there is no med

No medicine to take



I've had a chance to be insane

Asylum from the falling rain

I've had a chance to break



It's so bad it's got to be good

Mysterious girl misunderstood

Dressed like a wedding cake



Any other day and I might play

A funeral march for Bonnie Brae

Why try and run away



Slow cheetah come

Before my forest

Looks like it's on today



Slow cheetah come

It's so euphoric

No matter what they say



I know a girl

She worked in a store

She knew not what

Her life was for

She barely knew her name



They tried to tell her

She would never be

As happy as the girl

In the magazine

She bought it with her pay



Everyone has

So much to say

They talk talk talk

Their lives away

Don't even hesitate



Walking on down

To the burial ground

It's a very old dance

With a merry old sound

Looks like it's on today


Torture Me


Because I'm happy to be sad

I want it all I want it bad

Oh-oh – it's what I know



A vintage year for pop I hear

The middle of the end is near



Torture me and torture me

It's forcin' me so torture me

Torture me with sorcery

It's forcin' me so torture me



All the leaves are turning brown

The wind is pushing me around

Let's go – it's what I know



The will of God is standing still

Brazilian children get their fill

Let's go...



Let's turn it up and dumb it down

The vision of your ultra sound

Is so...



A vintage year for pop I hear

The middle of the end is near

It's so...


Strip My Mind


Arthur J did indicate

The boulevard would never be

So full of love and life again



Hot as Hades early eighties

Sing another song and make me

Feel like I'm in love again



Please don't strip my mind

Leave something behind

Please don't strip my mind



All in favor sign the waiver

Bloody Carolina won't you

Take another look inside



Operator, co-creator

Come on radiator won't you

Blow another top and sing



El Dorado won the lotto

All that cash and not a clue

But now you know what I've been through


Especially In Michigan


Life is my friend

Rake it up to take it in

Wrap me in your cinnamon

Especially in Michigan

……well I could be your friend



White clouds I'm in

A mitten full of fisherman

C'mon Huckleberry Finn

Show me how to make her grin

........well I'm in Michigan



Cry me a future

Where the revelations run amok

Ladies and gentlemen

Lions and tigers come running

Just to steal your luck



A rainy Lithuanian

Who's dancing as an Indian

Painted in my tiger skin

(Especially in Michigan)



Double chins and bowling pins

Unholy Presbyterians

Land is full of medicine

I find it when I'm slipping in

.......into Michigan



The tainted new librarian

Who fainted when she tucked you in

Let's float away like zeppelins

(On stoic gusts of Northern wind)



Out on the farm we'll be

Swimming with the mother duck

Deep in the mitten where

Lions and tigers come running

Just to steal your luck



Life is my friend

Underwater violins

Order now from Ho Chi Min

A porcelain that comes in twins

…………When I'm in Michigan



Throw me in the looney bin

‘Cause I can take it on the chin

The cleavage of your pillow skin

(Is moving like a violin)


Warlocks


Warlocks in wonderland

I've gotta megatropolis in my hand

And a…subterranean marching band

Makin' noise for the boys in the Vatican

And a



A little package and off we go

Oh…..ticky ticky tackita tic tac toe

I know….everybody's Eskimo

We've got another thing coming

And that's our show….well



Every night I go looking for you

Everyone in the world adores you

A little pocket of something kind

To find your reason

Coming up on it everyday for

Look at me and it's what I stay for

A little locket of fantasy

That we believe in



Lilacs and contraband

I've got Santa Monica in my hand

A little…..Beatlemania when I can

And I've got two big bags of old Japan



Ring side and blow-by-blow

Another…main event at the old rainbow

Were comin'…Right on top of the tupelo

When she looks just like Brigitte Bardot



Make a deal with Uncle Weezer

Sign your name to claim

China Chow will try to please her

Sweetness came from Jane



Warlocks in wonderland

I've gotta….Rockapotomus in my hand

With a….Happy ending that's made of sand

With a little bit of lovin' is all I can


C’mon Girl


Everything inside of me

Is burning up for you to see



And if we should get into it

A two way kind of syndicate, ho



Compare us to a Ferris wheel

Just be sure of what you want to steal

Some people do it by the book

But I prefer to go by feel, tell me



I wanted to get outta here

But every time I reappear

And know I have the words my dear

To whisper right into your ear, hey, yeah



C'mon girl

Let's get it right

Let's get it right

Let's get it right



The spirit of a dragon's tear

Is lovely at this time of year



The cave within your mountainside

Is deeper than it will be wide hold me



My disenchanted diplomat

Asleep inside the laundromat

Conveyer belts are moving and

I want you to be sure of that, tell me



And if you let it germinate

I know it will be worth the wait

Disputed by the news that it was you

Who tried to instigate, hey



Blessed are the hypocrites

Outwitted but she never quits

The trouble with a band of slits

Is washing off the muddy bits, hey…….yeah



Oh yeah, she's with me and I'm your man

If I can't find you no one can


Wet Sand


My shadow side so amplified

Keeps coming back dissatisfied

Elementary son but it's so…..



My love affair with everywhere

Was innocent why do you care

Someone start the car

Time to go…you're the best I know



My sunny side has up and died

I'm betting that when we collide

The universe will shift into a low



The travesties that we have seen

Are treating me like Benzedrine

Automatic laughter from a pro



My what a good day

For a walk outside

I'd like to get to know

You a little better baby

God knows that I really tried



My what a good day

For a take out bride

I'd like to say we

Did it for the better of



I saw you there so unaware

Those hummingbirds all in your hair

Elementary son but its so



The disrepair of Norma Jean

Could not compare to your routine

Balarama beauty

Going toe to toe



My what a good day

Just to let it slide

I'd like to say we did it for the better of



I thought about it

And I brought it out

I'm motivated by the lack of doubt

I'm consecrated but I'm not devout

The mother the father the daughter



Right on the verge just one more dose

I'm traveling from coast to coast

My theory isn't perfect but its close



I'm almost there why should I care

My heart is hurting when I share

Someone open up and

Let it show



My what a good day

For a walk outside

I'd like to think we did it for the better of



You don't form in the wet sand

You don't form at all

You don't form in the wet sand

I do  Yeah

You don't form in the wet sand

You don't form at all

You don't form in the wet sand

I do


Hey


Won't somebody come along

And teach me how to keep it alive

To survive



Come along and show me something

That I never knew in your eyes

Take away the tourniquet



I used to be so full of my confidence

I used to know just what I wanted and just where to go

More than ever I could use a coincidence

But now I walk alone and talk about it, when I know



Hey awe yeah  how long

I guess I oughta walk away

Hey awe yeah  so long

Whatcha gonna do today



I don't want to have to but I will

If that's what I am supposed to do

We don't wanna set up for the kill

But that's what I am about to do



Later on I'll cut you off

When you're screaming into the phone

Hard to own



Anyway I want to let you know

That everything is on hold

What you gonna do to me



You used to be so warm and affectionate

All the little things I used to hear my fairy say

But now you're quick to get into your regret

Take a fall and now you got to give it all away



Hey, what would you say if I stay

Stay for a while if I may

Say it again and I'll come around

But not for the last time

Hey, what would you say if I change

Change everything but my name

Play it again and I'll come around, come around

But not for the last time, not for the last time



You used to be so warm and affectionate

I used to know just what I wanted and just where to go

And now you're quick to get into your regret

But now I walk alone and talk about it, when I know


Desecration Smile


All alone not by myself

Another girl bad for my health

I've seen it all thru someone else

(Another girl bad for my health)



Celebrated but undisturbed

Serenaded by the terror bird

It's seldom seen but it's never heard

(Serenaded by the terror bird)



Never in the wrong time or wrong place

Desecration is the smile on my face

The love I made is the shape of my space

My face my face


Disintegrated by the rising sun

A rolling black out of oblivion

And I'd like to think that I'm your #1

(I'm rolling black out of oblivion)



I wanna leave but I just get stuck

A broken record runnin' low on luck

There's heavy metal coming from your truck

I'm a (a broken record runnin' low on luck)



We could all go down to

Malibu and make some noise

Coca Cola doesn't do the justice

She enjoys

We could all come up with

Something new to be destroyed

We could all go down



I love the feeling when it falls apart

I'm slow to finish but I'm quick to start and

Beneath the heather lies the meadowlark

And I'm

(Slow to finish but I am quick to start)


Tell Me Baby


They come from every state to find

Some dreams were meant to be declined

Tell the man what did you have in mind

What have you come to do



No turning water into wine

No learning while you're in the line

I'll take you to the broken sign

You see the lights are blue



Come and get it

Lost it at the city limit

Say goodbye

‘Cause they will find a way to trim it

Everybody

Lookin' for a silly gimmick

Gotta get away

Can't take it for another minute



This town is made of many things

Just look at what the current brings

So high it's only promising

This place was made on you



Tell me baby what's your story

Where you come from

And where you wanna go this time

Tell me lover are you lonely

The thing we need is

Never all that hard to find

Tell me baby what's your story

Where do you come from

And where you wanna go this time

You're so lovely are you lonely

Giving up on the innocence you left behind



Some claim to have the fortitude

Too shrewd to blow the interlude

Sustaining pain to set a mood

Step out to be renewed



I'll move you like a baritone

Jungle brothers on the microphone

Getting over with an undertone

It's time to turn to stone



Chitty chitty baby

When your nose is in the nitty gritty

Life could be a little sweet

But life could be a little shitty

What a pity

Boston and a Kansas City

Looking for a hundred

But you only ever found a fitty



Three fingers in the honeycomb

You ring just like a xylophone

Devoted to the chromosome

The day that you left home


Hard To Concentrate


Hustle, bustle and so much muscle awww

Cells about to separate

And I find it hard to concentrate and



Temporary this cash and carry

I'm stepping up to indicate

The time has come to deviate and



All I want is for you to be happy and

Take this moment to make you my family and

Finally you have found something perfect and

Finally you have found


Death defying this mess I'm buying

It's raining down with love and hate

And I find it hard to motivate and



Estuary is blessed but scary your

Heart's about to palpitate

And I'm not about to hesitate and



One to treasure the rest of your days here and

Give you pleasure in so many ways dear and

Finally you have found something perfect and

Finally you have found……..here we go



Do you want me to show up for duty and

Serve this woman and honor her beauty and

Finally you have found something perfect and

Finally you have found……yourself



With me……will you…agree…to take

This man…into your world…

And now…we are as one…



My lone ranger the heat exchanger

Is living in this figure eight

And I'll do my best to recreate and



Sweet precision and soft collision awww

Hearts about to palpitate

And I find it hard to separate and



All I want is for you to be happy and

Take this woman and make you my family and

Finally you have found someone perfect and

Finally you have found……yourself


21st Century


All the creatures on the beaches

Making waves in the motion picture



Won't you keep this in between us

Search and seizure wake up Venus



The dollar bill will mentally ill bill

Mom and dad take your don't be sad pill



Turn the screw and twist my language

Don't forsake me I'm contagious



There's a reason

For the 21st century

Not too sure

But I know that it's

Meant to be

And that it's meant to be



It's my favorite combination

Coming down with the favored nations

Deep rotation mutilation

Learn to give and take dictation

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, like Cain and Abel

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, gonna to run this table



Read me your scripture now

Read me your scripture

Read me your scripture and I will twist it



Show me your wrist and I

Show me your wrist and

Show me your wrist and I'll kiss it kiss it



Oh, oh oh, oh oh, like Cain and Abel

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, gonna to run this table



Simple soldier hand it over

Stop and read what you just wrote her



Strangulation altercation

Oral sex and bird migration


She Looks To Me


Looks to me like heaven sent

No lullaby kid no 5%



Any way you want to cut that cake

She's dyin' from the likes of abandonment



Lost in the valley without my horses

She needs somebody to hold



It looks to me like heaven

Sent this for your roughest night

She looks to me

She looks to me all right



Who's going to take you home

And hold you when things aren't so bright

She looks to me

She looks to me all right



It's a long walk down those tracks

It's a dirty walk in

It's a dirty walk back

Gonna learn aww way too much

Shootin' dope in the back

Of a Cadillac Jack



Slow down the road to my back 40

She needs somebody to hold



Down in the South seas

Give me your mouth please

Resuscitation

Is the way I find these

I give you major

You give me minor

Don't fade away

Like an ocean liner

Now



Lost in the valley

Without my horses

No one can tell me

What my remorse is



God made this lady

That stands before me

She needs somebody to hold



She shows the world up with a smile

And then she throws the fight

She looks to me she looks to me all right



Down on the bathroom floor

She's searching for another light

She looks to me she looks to me all right


Readymade


Readymade readymade

Steady as the rhythm rolls

Readymade readymade

And this is how the story goes



I gotta cousin making beats

Deep down in Arizona



We're gonna rock it to Ramone's

In the city of Pomona



And if I give to you my second sight

You got it

And if I stay the course I'll stay the night

Come get it



Readymade readymade

Baby oughta celebrate

Readymade readymade

And now it's time to deviate



I've gotta sister making babies

With a Black and Decker blow torch



We're gonna fop it all night

In the middle of the back porch



Readymade readymade

Rockin' for the sake of slade

Readymade readymade

Listen but don't be afraid



I've gotta brother making trouble

In the state of Caledonia



I wish I knew another way

But I'm gonna have to clone ya


If


And if I had a clue I'd know exactly

What to do

If I were the wiser of the two



And if I saw it all so clear

I'd write it down and bend your ear

If I were the clearer of the two



We could take a walk into the

Canyons of 5th Avenue

Sing and dance…

Just to name a few



All I do



And if I heard the angels sing I'd

Sing it back to you and bring the

Sound of heaven ringing just for you



And if I saw the sun fall down

I'd pick it up and make a crown

One that was a perfect fit for you



We could take a walk

Into the apple orchard by the school

We could make a little residue



We could find a place to stay

A secret little hide away

Spend a little time inside of you



All I do



All eyes

All eyes on you



All I do


Make You Feel Better


She's the one she's the only one

She's got ripped back light

Gonna make me come

I say…when I smile

I'm a really smile

I got dreams so wide like a country mile



I said now, I'll take it

It's better for you

Somehow we'll make it

‘Cause that's what we do



Pick a star in the open sky

I see you see me

And that is why I



Hop along to the cowboy beat

When I feel your fire

Jump up to meet



Something out there

Where love is your only friend and

We are the ones

That will make you feel better and

Someone to spare

When love is the only end and

We are the ones

That will make you feel better

Oh yeah



In a world that has run amok

I've got to set my sights

Just to get struck



I walk away from the rank and file

With a punched out mouth

And a pack of style



I say…she's the one she's the only one

Make me search myself

Until I'm done…and

Tell me now in a telegram

Do the sea of stars

Make a diagram…and



So alive I arrive on dust

You can search my mind

For the red on rust…I said

Take me there and she really cares

Lights up for me gonna hear my prayers

I said


Animal Bar


Never 21 when everyone's a sailor

Coming up strong at the animal bar

Ever loving mug of Mr. Norman Mailer

Turn another page at the Animal Bar

And it won't be long

No it won't be long

Because it can't be long



I    I    I  the cry of isolation

I    I    I  the high of meditation

I    I    I  for sweet precipitation

I    I    I  the high of deprivation



And it won't be long

No it won't be long

No it won't be long

Because it can't be long



Rain on my frustration

Stake my claim now break this

Wash me down my station

Makes more rain foresaken

In between the sky and every piece of the earth

Runnin' through the mud

I got a feeling of worth



All aboard the ship

'Cause you're gonna need an ark

When the wet comes down

You'll be swimming like a shark

Mopping up the pain and

I'm a little older

The song of rain

At the Animal Bar



Raindrops will fall from the sky

Stealing their shape from your eye

Now we can all get some sleep

The water the water the water

Saving us from the heat



Some things will die in their place

Others will leave little trace

Fire will come find its day

The water the water the water

Washing it all away


So Much I


Next stop on the KLM

Two lips and a sturdy stem

A funny thing always happens when

I get a heavy jam

I'm gonna turn it into hydrogen

I   I,   I   I,    I   I,     I   I   I    I,       I



Cowgirl and a troubadour

MGM and the lion's roar

A straight shot to the corner store

I wanna show you what

I wanna show you what your head is for

I   I,   I   I,    I   I,     I   I   I    I,       I



So much I    wish I could

So many I    wish I would

So much I    wish I could

Count on you not to complete me

So much I    wish I could

So many I    wish I would

So much I    wish I could

Count on you not to defeat me



Please don't turn away again

Please don't turn me into them

Please don't turn away a friend

Please don't turn me into them



Stand by for the great eclipse

Rip it out now shake your hips

Backing off the apocalypse

I gotta loosen up

I gotta loosen up to get my grip

I   I,   I   I,    I   I,     I   I   I    I,       I


Storm In A Teacup


Come on come on baby

Let me show you what I'm talkin' about



You try to be a lady

But you're walkin' like a sour kraut



Looka looka lika lika

Like you want to get some



If you never tell a lie

Then you'll never have to play dumb



Dirty baby time you're gonna take some

Pretty baby love you're gonna make some

Little lady hearts you're gonna break some

Kinda shady tears you're gonna fake some



Dirty baby we've got a situation

Pretty baby open invitation

Little lady what a reputation

Kinda shady now you're gonna make again



I know you can straddle

The atmosphere

A tiny storm in your teacup girl

I know you can battle the

Masses, dear

A tiny storm in your teacup girl



Every other day you say

You're gonna have to bury 'em



Famous last words

Spoken from the laserium



Descendants had a record

Sayin' somethin' 'bout Milo



You can take the A train

But you're gonna have to lie low


We Believe


The curtain

Is open

A head to

Put dope in

Now we will

Come clean it

The future

We've seen it

No, no, I know, I said, no no



It's like a dream

That falls away

Into the night

Where we can play

I'm on a train

One happy day

Two eyes for sight

Three times I pray



Soda pop

We've got to set up shop

And when the weather comes

We've got a pressure drop

We don't know

But everyday I go

To see what I can bring

Into a cameo

Oh oh oh no



We believe

Climb a tree

For monkey business

Write a check out to forgiveness

All the world on half an acre

Pushing dirt into a Quaker



The mission

The method

The downfall

Arrested

'Cuz it's not

The first time

Nor is it

The worst time

No no oh no



To see the bird

Without a care

For in a word

It's nice out there

In a tree

My mama bear

Will be all right

With proper care



Hey hey hey do



Boomerang

Into a bigger bang

A little cry of love

Because they cannot sing

Cherokee

What did the pharaoh see

Another time and space

Another place to be



The motive

The measure

The purpose

The pleasure



The risk is

It worth it

The disc is

It perfect



I found you

Amongst them

The flower

With young stem



Disparage

The broken

The marriage

Alopin'


Turn It Again


Some of us get a little

And some a lot

We've got to make due

With whatever we got

We get it hot we cool it down

And then we pass it around



You can dance

For the sake of a golden day

Take a chance on getting rid

Of whatever's in your way

Next stop big hop

Is turning night into day



Sometimes when

I'm lying there all alone

I think of every little nothing

That we could own

To overthrow all of you

Who have overgrown



All my friends

Like to spend

Days on end

On the mend

I turn to you, I turn into

And then I turn it again



Here we go

All we know

Heavy load

Start to float

Without a doubt, we turn it out

And then we turn it again



Let's dance all night and day now

Get down and show the way how

I want to show you that I care



Two things I want to say now

You make it all ok now

I need to know that you are there



I've come to learn

Whatever time I can find to spend

Taking flight into

Whatever light we bend

Out on the street

I get a beat and then

I turn it to ten



Lace boots and the

Ladies of Kazakhstan

Kick 'em high to the sky

All of this just because we can

I turn to Cuba

Then Aruba then the Dominican



We've got to move it

If we want to do our best

We've got to shake it

If we want to keep it fresh



I'm turning down

All the heavy psychology

To cut a rug

And I make no apology

I turn a cheek, I turn a key

And then I turn it for free



We've got to move it

Just a little to hit the spot

A whirling dervish in a flurry

A fox to trot

Come clown around, a robot

Doin' the astronaut


Death Of A Martian


Bear paws and rascal power

Watching us in your garage

Big girl you ate the neighbor

The nova is over

Wake up and play

Balleradio

Make room for Clara's bare feet

The love of a Martian



Tick tock and waiting for the meteor

This clock is opening another door



Lots of love just keep it comin'

Makin' something out of nothin'

These are the best that I

I don't know how to say

Losin' what I love today

These are the best that I

Lots of love just keep it comin'

Makin' something out of nothin'

These are the best that I

I don't know what to say

Look at what I've lost today

And these are the things that I



Blood flowers in the kitchen

Signing off and winding down

This Martian ends her mission

The nova is over

She caught the ball

By the mission bell

Chase lizards, bark at donkeys

The love of a Martian



Let's bow our heads

And let the trumpets blow

Our girl is gone

God bless her little soul



She's got a sword in case though this is not her lord in case the one who can't afford to face her image is restored to grace. Disappeared. No trace. Musky tears. Suitcase. The down turn brave little burncub bearcareless turnip snare rampages pitch color pages…. down and out but not in Vegas. Disembarks and disengages. No loft. Sweet pink canary cages plummet pop dewskin fortitude for the sniffing black noses that snort and allude to the dangling trinkets that mimic the dirt cough go drink its. It's for you. Blue battered naval town slip kisses delivered by duck muscles and bottlenosed grifters arrive in time to catch the late show. It's a beehive barrel race. A shehive stare and chase wasted feature who tried and failed to reach her. Embossed beneath a box in the closet that's lost. The kind that you find when you mind your own mysteries. Shiv sister to the quickness before it blisters into the newmorning milk blanket. Your ilk is funny to the turnstyle touch bunny whose bouquet set a course for bloom without decay. Get your broom and sweep echoes of yesternights fallen freckles…. away…
