Mrs. Jesus

"life lines and suicide crimes —
he found me in a state
grabbed my purse and hitched a ride
with a mrs. jesus "how you been"
i’ve been cruisin’ a good invention
but in some ways
i don’t think it gets any easier
your walking on the water
bit by far my favourite one

"if you’re a thought
you will want me
to think you
and i did invite
a guest up until
you announced
you had moved in
"what do you plan to do with all your freedom?"
the new sheriff said

Taxi Ride

"lily is dancing
on the table
we’ve all been
pushed
too far
i guess on days
like this
you know who your
friends are
just another dead fag
to you that’s all
just another light missing
on a long taxi ride
taxi ride

and i’m down to
your last cigarette and
this "we are one" crap
as you’re invading
this thing you call
love – she smiles
way too much but
i’m glad you’re
on my side

Don’t Make Me Come To Vegas

"don’t make me come to vegas
don’t make me pull you out of his bed
i am vigilant that it will not be
you on the menu he’s serving up for his friends
don’t make me come to vegas
don’t make me pull him out of your head
athena will attest
that it could be done
and it has been done
and i think that i am up to it
and the jacaranda tree
is telling me of the trouble you’re in
just by the way
she bends remember dancing and wondering
as you were swaying
what kind of woman you’d be
"what will be will be" over my dead body
slip through your hand again and again
slip through your hand again and again
my old flame was a jester and a joker
and as healer of men

A Sorta Fairytale

"on my way up north
up on the ventura
i pulled back the hood
and i was talking to you
and i knew then it would be
a life long thing
but i didn’t know that we
we could break a silver lining

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you’d take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i’m so sad
like a good book
i can’t put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

and i ride along side
and i rode along side
you then
and i rode along side
till you lost me there
in the open road
and i rode along side
till the honey spread
itself so thin
for me to break your bread
for me to take your word
i had to steal it

and i...
