Bad Intentions

This is the face I wear treading the riptide Abysmal oceans where good girls go to die I wanna love somebody Wanna feel their love on me But after everything I still believe in true love Not being able to find it Damn it tears me up And I know it’s my fault I know…

Plum Season

My mother loved the summer But not for the weather She loved the mid-season plums June, July, August sweet ones My father kept them plenty Always stocked in our pantry Some ripe and some well past peak Till she was too sick to eat Still at my childhood home The only home that I’ve known…

Vagabond

Oh girl I don’t know all the reasons why, I found the answer lookin’ in your eye, I go out walking all day long, Take away this lonely man soon he will be gone, Cause I’ll tell you everything about living free, Yes I can see you girl can you see me, You don’t need…

Perfect Doll

Places, places, get in your places Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces. Everyone thinks that we’re perfect Please don’t let them look through the curtains.

Come fly with me

Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away If you can use some exotic booze There’s a bar in far Bombay Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away Come fly with me, let’s float down to Peru In llama-land there’s a one-man band And he’ll toot his flute for you Come fly…

Invocation

The demon comes but must be called Comes to all the sleeping homes He breaks the night and lifts their drones Demon comes but must be called The demon calls to me at length Demon has no other strength Except to end the stretching thighs For those whose fate it is to die The demon…

Need a ride

Said, “Angel, Do you want a ride?” Said, “Angel, I’m tired and I’m lonely And I need somebody by my side” It was a long road that stretched from Vegas to nowhere But it’d been an even longer time Since he found some piece of mind And he lived off of bubblegum and cigarettes And…

Candy

I was there to witness Candice’s inner business She wants the boys to notice Her rainbows, and her ponies She was educated but could not count to ten Now she got lots of different horses By lots of different men And I say Liberate your sons and daughters The bush is high but in the…

Dragon Within

Lost but marching on like we’ve always known the trail Searching for our ending to the fairy-tale Sometimes even shooting stars find wishes that miss their marks But when the night gets too dark And the road home seems too far We’ll see the sun come up again We will climb higher than we’ve been…

Season of change

Season of change life feels so strange Look into my eyes do you see the truth I’m lost and alone feelings unknown Come to me stronger than before On winds of time my soul will fly The angels are knocking at my door Oh now I need to be free From all this hatred I…

Witching Hour

Come hear the moon is calling, The witching hour draws near, Come hear the bell is tolling, Mortals run in fear, Prepare the altar now and hear the virgin cry, Hold fast the sacrifice, For now it’s the time to die, All hell breaks loose, Hell’s breaking loose. Unveil the pentagram, And feel the demons…

Red Lights

Blacked out, everything’s faded On your love I’m already wasted So close that I can taste it now… now… So let’s break right out of these gilded cages We’re gonna make it now… Don’t ever turn around Don’t ever turn around Nobody else needs to know Where we might go… We could just run them…
