1Why

Lyrics

Speak my language
Do a little damage
Nothing left to salvage
Never mind the carnage

Why do birds fall from the sky
Every time that you walk by?
I don't know why
I don't know why

Get a little lowdown
Gonna be a showdown
Not enough to go 'round
Look at what I found (ch)

Kinda like a dancer
New romancer
Spreading like a cancer
There's no answer (ch)

2Waiting Like Mary

Lyrics

Two xx of pills started kickin in
She decided to go for a drive
The sun was shining through the afternoon haze
And she felt more alive

She had pictures of her children
And she remembered all of their names
She knew it was much better for them now
but it hearts just the same

And there is just two reasons for everything
And people who just talk without listening
And people who spent their whole lives
waiting like Mary

Put 50 cents in the jukebox
A11 came up
So many years trying to the best
was it ever enough

He loved her like a sister
He loved her like a mom
He remembered what it was to fall in love
And then he was gone

And there is just two reasons for everything
And people who just talk without listening
And people who spent their whole lives
waiting (bridge) like Mary

In a dream there were people wathcing
as they lovered her into the ground
In a dream she was lost at sea
And never found

In a dream she found a lover
Who never new her before
In a dream she was beautifull
Lying on the floor

And there is just two reasons for everything
And people who just talk without listening
And people who spent their whole lives
waiting

And there is just two reasons for everything
And people who just talk without listening
And people who spent their whole lives
waiting
like Mary

3This Deadly Game

Lyrics

Polly said to Jack,
"Baby I like your style.
Would you step into my office
For a little while?
I've got a sugar-coated web
And a candy center"
I said "To know her
Is to defend her."
Oh, it's all or nothing
Queen of diamonds
And a second cousin
Come in, sign your name
For this deadly game

Babylon was
Draped in haze
And nobody
Had seen the night in days
She was dancing in a room
In a violet sweater
I said, "To know her
Is to regret her"
Oh, it's now or never
Don't think of me whenever
Someone has to take the blame
For this deadly game

Daddy won't be home
Until a little later
And he'll be looking
For his little instigator
Take whatever
Means are handy
To know me
Is to understand me
Oh, it's not that easy
Immaculate but a little greasy
Sometimes they're not the same
In this deadly game

Polly said to Jack,
"Baby, I like your style
Would you step over here
For a little while?"
I said,
"I'll see you later."
To know her
Is to hate her
Oh, it's time for action
A pile of words and a cool retraction
No time for shame
In this deadly game

The black widow isn't alone in the animal kingdom, merely the most efficient. This song was written in a time when the lethality of love is more apparent and literal. But the deadly game is nothing new. Just ask Samson and John the Baptist.-SW

6The Way You Punish Me

Lyrics

In another life I must have been bad
In another life I must have been bad
Stripped down, break my pride
Straight through the other side
Rip through my memory
Nothing that I want to see

I love the way you punish me

In another life I must have done wrong
In another life I must have done wrong
Don't tell me what I've done
Don't see what I've become
Ravish me, tear me down
Stub my life into the ground

I love the way you punish me

11The Blue Drifter

Lyrics

Outside of Memphis
just after midnight
got on the Grayhound
and he sat next to me

He said,
"Ain't no pathway that I'm looking for.
Ain't no end to the line
I think I shouldn't think about it all that much
I guess I shouldn't think about it all the time"

He had a woman
He had a family
he got restless
now he just doen't care (ch)

After a while you lose direction
Follow the first path that you see
and you say,
"I never thoght that this could happen
could never happen to me"

Here comes the Blue Drifter
Lost on the highway
Talks in a whisper
And he looks just like me

12John Coltrane Stereo Blues

Lyrics

Oh keep your hands on the shades baby
no one gonna care
when the moon goes dead
oh I might have said something sometime
but I don't care what I might have said
we're gonna take it
move it
sand it down
we're gonna send it back from where it came
oh yeah yeah
gonna be all right
it's gonna be all right
I feel it, want it, know it
yeah I say yeah yeah yeah
it's gonna be all right
(guitar)

I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I got some fine wine in the freezer mama
I know what you like
I gonna take it, turn it, set it loose
we gonna learn about love on a three ply rug
hah
Gonna be all right
It's gonna be all right
I feel it
gonna be all right
(guitars,guitars,guitars)

Don't tell me anymore bout the
civilized world baby
it's just you and me
Oh what do I gotta do to show you
the way that it's gonna be
Gonna take it, move it, [sand] it down
gonna send it back to burn in flame
gonna be all right
it's gonna be all right
yeah
shhh it's gonna be all right
oh yeah yeah yeah all right

I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I got some fine wine in the freezer mama
I know what you like
I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I got some fine wine in the freezer mama
I know what you like
I got some John Coltrane on the stereo baby
make it feel all right
I said a man works hard all day
he can do what he wants to
At night
come on, come on...
(hopefully crowd goes wild here)

she said Hold me tight
I don't think that's what you want
I don't think that's what you want
She said Hold me tight
I don't think that's what you want
Don't think that's what you want
Hold me tight, hold me tight
hold me tight, hold me tight
Gonna be all right
