Lyrics


Where do I put this fire
This bright red feeling
This tigerlily down my mouth
He wants to grow to twenty feet tall

(Chorus)

I’ve left bethlehem
I feel free
I’ve left the girl I was supposed to be and
Someday I’ll be born
I’m so tired of being shy
I’m not that girl anymore
I’m not that straight A anymore
Now I want to sit with my legs wide open and
Laugh so loud that the whole damn restaurant
Will turn and look at me & say
Look at the tiger jumping out of her mouth

(Chorus)

No more sex-starved teachers
Trying to touch my ass
I can finally be a teenager at age twenty-six
Go to hell lions, tigers, and bears
I’m not afraid of you anymore
And my fear ripped apart like fifty balloons
And I’m thrown around the room like party confetti now

(Chorus)

Someday I’ll be born
Someday someday someday I’ll be born
Someday someday someday I’ll be born

Oh you get me ready in your 56 chevy
Why don’t we go sit down in the shade
Take shelter on my front porch
The dandy lion sun scorching
Like a glass of cold lemonade
I will do laundry if you pay all the bills

(Chorus)

Where is my John Wayne
Where is my prairie song
Where is my happy ending
Where have all the cowboys gone

Why don’t you stay the evening
Kick back and watch the TV
And I’ll fix a little something to eat
Oh I know your back hurts from working on the tractor
How do you take your coffee my sweet
I will raise the children if you pay all the bills

(Chorus)

I am wearing my new dress tonight
But you don’t, but you don’t even notice me
Say goodbyes
Say goodbyes
Say goodbyes

We finally sell the chevy
When we had another baby
And you took the job in tennessee
You made friends at the farm
And you joined them at the bar
Almost every single day of the week

(Chorus)

I will wash the dishes while you go have a beer
Where is my Marlboro man
Where is his shiny gun
Where is my lonely ranger
Where have all the cowboys gone
Yippee yo, yippee yeah

So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll call you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead

There you go again you cut me off from talking
You bask in the glory
The center of the circle
All the friends think you are a comedian
So kind and generous
but I am suffering
Away from here
I wanna be
Away from here
Away from here
Away from every little thing
Every little thing
I used to love your every little, every little thing

Now you call me a bitch in heat and
I call you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead

You’re the puppeteer and i’m the puppet
You manipulate me with your real catholic shit
Everytime i try to talk it through
You turn it around and make us out to be
like David and Goliath

Away from here
I wanna be
Away from here
Away from here
Away from every little thing
Every little thing
I used to love your every little every little thing

Now you call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll call you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead

Your arms beneath me
Your lying inside me
I used to love your every little every little thing
Your eyes blue stars
Your hand in my purse
And now I hate your every little everything all day

Oh momma
I didn’t know life was this hard
Oh momma
My innocence has been tarred

My inner vision, dulled and darkened
I keep myself away to you
I fuck my sorrow humblely
And throw my crown upon the ground

It’s you I hope for
And us I pray for
And me that I believed was wrong
But now my anger is my best friend
Be careful may bite your head off

Liar

So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead

So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll you a motherfucker
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead

(Chorus)

Carmen, I don’t know if I can go back
Carmen, I’ll never be the same again
Carmen, Carmen, Carmen..

The way you set the table
The way you lean into tell me something soft
The way I can see into you
The way you tell me I talk too much about myself
It’s true, I talk too much about myself
But right now I want to talk about you now

(Chorus)

I love the way you think
Is it biological or all the acid you’ve eaten?
Just take me to your body
I want to be high I want to be drunk
I want to be high on you

I know I’m big and proud all over
Not just on the stage
My secret self has many sides
That laugh and crush and sting
I’m red and thick like fire
I like it from behind
Round to back
Red to white
I’m pure inside and silent

I know I’ve
Gotta piece of my heart
On the sole of your shoe
I’ve got a little bit of thunder
Trapped inside of that cloud
The dog in you
Spit me out into the mississippi

I know who can love my many selves
The wife, the bitch, the rapunzel
The one who cries
And calls for you
The one who is always alone

I know I’ve
Gotta piece of my heart
On the sole of your shoe
I’ve got a little bit of thunder
Trapped inside of that cloud
The dog in you
Spit me out into the mississippi

Oh mississippi
Come and wash my pain away
Oh mississippi
Come and take my pain away
I feel I’m drowning
I feel I’m drowning
I feel I’m
I feel I’m
Dying

I know I’ve
Gotta piece of my heart
On the sole of your shoe
I’ve got a little bit of thunder
Trapped inside of that cloud
The dog in you
Spit me out into the mississippi

I know I’ve
Gotta piece of my heart
On the sole of your shoe
I’ve got a little bit of thunder
Trapped inside of that cloud
The dog in you
Spit me out into the mississippi

I know I’ve
Gotta piece of my heart
On the sole of your shoe
I’ve got a little bit of thunder
Trapped inside of that cloud
The dog in you
Spit me out into the mississippi

How many times did
I have to hear you say to me
Self obsessed artist
Center of your universe
Well I believed your every word
And I believed you were my god

(Chorus)

Nietzsche’s eyes
Nietzsche’s kind
Failed in flight to us
And all my love

Grandmother Mother
And now I see it in myself
I take on the water
Until the dam threatens to break
I became a little dull
My voice became too small

(Chorus)

I’m shakin’ I’m shakin’ I’m getting down this fantasy And I’m shakin’ I’m shakin’
I’m getting down this
Getting down this You were not my superman
I didn’t know Just held the phone
All my love I’m shakin’ I’m shakin’
I’m getting down this fantasy
I’m shakin’ I’m shakin’
I’m getting down this, getting down this
You were not my superman

I wasn’t honest
I tried to philosphize
Only too late did
I see I wore nietzsche’s eyes
Now that I step back to see
I haven’t been me

(Chorus)

I’m shakin’ I’m shakin’
I’m getting down this fantasy
And I’m shakin’
I’m shakin’
I’m getting down this
Getting down this

Dead dead dead dead walking down to the road to dead

Welcome to the church of me
Where they stand in a line in need
Of water from my eyes
And a song for comfort
You say Jesus Christ
Well, I feel like him
I feel one, two, three
Nails through me and
Four through the heart

(Chorus)

You walk the road to resurrection
And I walk the road to dead
And I never knew my devotion
But I walk the road to dead

I held you
And wrapped you in the heat of my hand
And prayed for my soul
Now I want you back
As you walk away from my love
You need to need
Strength is threatenous
I filled you will faith
And that filled me with pain
What the hell am I doing
Falling in love with pain again and again and again and again

(Chorus)

Dead dead dead dead walking on to the road to dead

I am not the person who is singing
I am the silent one inside
I am not the one who laughs at people’s jokes I just pacify their egos
I am not my house, my car, my songs
They are only just stops along my way
I am like the winter
I’m a dark cold female
With a golden ring of wisdom in my cave

(Chorus)

And it is me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence

I am carrying my voice
I am carrying my heart
I am carrying my rhythmn
I am carrying my prayers
But you can’t kill my spirit
It’s soaring and it’s strong
Like a mountain
I’ll go on and on
But when my wings are folded
The brightly colored moth
Blends into the dirt into the ground

(Chorus)

And it’s me who’s too weak
And it’s me who’s too shy
To ask for the thing i love
And it’s me who’s too weak
And it’s me who’s too shy
To ask for the thing i love
That I love

I am walking on the bridge
I am over the water
And I’m scared as hell
But I know there’s something better
Yes I know there’s something
Yes I know, i know, yes i know

That I love
But it’s me
And it’s me
But it’s me

Love, love

You make me feel like a sticky pistil…
leaning into a stamen
You make me feel like a mister sunshine…
Himself
You make me feel like splendor in the grass…
While we’re rollin’
DAMN SKIPPY BABY
You make me feel like the Amazon’s runnin’ between…
my thighs

(Chorus)

You make me feel love, love, love, love, love
love, love, love, love, love
You make me feel love, love, love, love, love
love, love, love, love

You make me feel like a candy apple
All red and horny
You make me feel like I wanna be a dumb blonde
In a centerfold, the girl next door
And I would open the door and…
I’d be all wet
With my tits soaking through this tiny little t-shirt…
That I’m wearing
And you would open the door and tie…
Me up to the bed

(Chorus)

Lover, but I don’t know who I am
Am I Barry White? Am I Isis? Ohhh…
Lover, I’m laced with your unconscious
Oh baby babe babe baby
I will be your Desdemona ahhhhh…

Take your time

You make me feel Ahaa
You make me feel WooWoo baby
You make me feel Ahaa mmm
You make me feel loved

Long white arms losing their strength and form
Sixty year man on twenty year old skin
Skeleton your eyes have lost their warmth
And look to your father for some support

Hush, hush, hush….says your Daddy’s touch.
Sleep, sleep, sleep….says the hundredth sheep
Peace, peace, peace….May you go in peace.

Cruel joke you waited so long to show
The one that you wanted wasn’t a girl
All your life you kept it hidden inside
Now when you step, you stumble, you die

Oh maybe next time you’ll be Henry the Eighth
Wake up tomorrow Alexander the Great
Open your eyes in a new life again
Oh maybe next tme you’ll be given a chance

Hush, hush, hush..

So open up your morning light
And say a little prayer for I
you know that if we are to stay alive
Then see the peace in every eye

She had two babies. One was six months, one was three
In the war of ‘44
Every telephone ring, every heartbeat stinging
When she thought it was God calling her
Oh would her son grow to know his father?

(Chorus)

I don’t want to to wait for our lives to be over
I want to know right now what will it be
I don’t want to wait for our lives to be over
Will it be yes or will it be sorry?

He showed up all wet on the rainy front step
Wearing shrapnel in his skin
And the war he saw lives inside him still
It’s so hard to be gentle and warm
The years pass by and now he has granddaughters

(Chorus)

You look at me from across the room
You’re wearing your anguish again
Believe me I know the feeling
It sucks you into the jaws of anger
So breathe a little more deeply my love
All we have is this very moment
And I don’t want to do what his father
and his father, and his father did
I want to be here now

So open up your morning light
And say a little prayer for I
You know that if we are to stay alive
Then see the love in every eye
