Black Comet

2005

They are gathering around at the river of blood
They see through the skin and they know it's good
The warmth of the river is giving rise
The scent of the host wells up in the eyes

Look up, wake up, look around at the anatomy
The sideways are stretching time
Dismissing the clocks and their tick and tock
Talking like they're all friends of mine

Freak out seek out everybody look and listen
Freak out seek out everybody stop and stare

Everybody wants a red light
Everybody sees the next time
Everybody hears the same thing
Everybody buys a new life

Everyone's yelling what everyone hears
Everyone's eyes see the light
Would you feel so protected if your life was dissected
And your blood flowed into the river of mine
Let's go down to the river of blood
Leave what you think that you've won
Yes you are the river and yes, you are the boat
The blood isn't something you own

Freak out, seek out, everybody look and listen
Freak out, seek out, everybody stop and stare

Everybody wants a red light
Everybody sees the next time
Everybody hears the same thing
Everybody buys a new life

this is the best, the best of the blessed
it didn't test the camera
I couldn't take another picture from the fire
but it's taking hold, the paper and gold
the foolish thoughts we inspire
I've somehow overthrown the places I've grown to admire
Oooo

sit on the throne, and talk on the phone
everybody's doin' fine
you'd be better off dead and the rest is a throwaway line
the lock of a curl of a beautiful girl who's standing by my side
she could've thrown me off like the deadest weight
she's all right
oooo

through the glass of the window
through the stone of the wall
through the red of the engine light
she will carry us all
it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll
and it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll
through the glass of the racecar
through the stone of the wall
through the red of the engine light
she will carry us all
and it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll
it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll

there is a mountain of lovers uncounted to dig up and throw away
you're one of those lovers it'll hurt to uncover one day
you are the west and the west is a test
dig it up and please and play nice
there's no way to measure but pleasure by pleasure
oooo

through the glass of the window
through the stone of the wall
through the red of the engine light
she will carry us all
it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll
and it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll
through the glass of the racecar
through the stone of the wall
through the red of the engine light
she will carry us all
and it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll
it's a pretty life
til you're smashing the rock into roll

Pistol whipped to the beat of a drum
Haul you off to prison til the communists come
No case investigation by the chosen one
Divided and delighted under government gun

Black comet you're the future and the future devils run
For the nature and order of the terrified love
The hour is rising as the treasure chest comes
We know it isn't you
You're not the fortunate son

You're a black comet in the setting sun
I'm a cotton operator in the slum of slums
And you're the king of all the kingdoms when that kingdom come
Come along

Pistol whipped to the beat of a drum
Haul you off to prison when the communists come
No case investigation by the chosen one
The people reunited under government gun

Borderline
Life in a little rocket between the stars and street lights
Spinning time
Sorry it's simple but the simple keeps me up at night

Step in the rhythm
You must be the empty
Space in the rhythm
You must be on your own
On your own

Tourniquet
The love you're making looking like an epileptic fit
You're rearranging as the people keep on changing sides
Just give me everything you know I don't need
And when that happens
We will all be free

Dance around the table without a light
Watch another fable fall down beside them gently
Smiling in death and the labor of complications
Warm and irreplaceable soft as lovers' selfless hands

She said relax
There's bones on the ground
Stand in if you must
For the bones on the ground

Waving to the neighbors, that's enough
Saving all the papers, you care too much for them
Could you ever love them if their eyes were full of empty
Tortured and replaceable delighted and sure of nothing

She said relax
There's bones on the ground
Stand in if you must
For the bones on the ground

Holding way too tight
Watch the apple ripe
Picture turns to gold
Gold becomes unknown
Should have left it alone

This is a mission for the culture of the whores, freaks, junkies
and leaches and preachers and the poor
Cause some of them are great
Though all have bit the bait
Before they know it's over it's over

Now their death is begging please
And I'm down on my knees
Begging for some water as I'm drowning in a lake
The righteous creatures shake
The bones they start to break
The elastic days of this life

As the pages pass and the terror traps
Turn off the movies that your life just imitates
Cause every move you make is like a great escape
Your heart is growing colder and colder

Wow! I hear your body moan
You don't want to be alone!
But your mind is like a plant of stone that never seems to grow
Destroy the things you know
Snap and let it go
Elastic days of this life

As the children sleep in the ashes of bo-peep
The story gets older and older
Gently sweeping off their feet
And falling into deep
Dreaming dreams you want to dream over and over
Now, you're followed by a cloud that would make your parents proud
Let it rain on your pain until your pain is completely rained away
The righteous creatures shake
The nights that are replaced
With the elastic days of this life

Racetrack
There's a thin wall
And the racehorses
That's a fine line

Watching from Cadillac
I'm not sure half of the victories show
How much I want it and how much I don't
I am just half of a thoroughbred star
Who's riding me know
Way up loud

Go home
Cause you forgot what
Go back man
To appease whom

And from the battle my saddle was thrown
Caution the dreamers to take what they know
I am just half of a thoroughbred crown
Who's wearing me now
Way up loud

She is nowhere
Nowhere around
He thinks he sees her in the ground
In a light dressed storm
What I made you for
This crazy pitfall
Turns him around
Thinks he thinks he wants to make you
(his wisdom is unsound)
in the future he wore
coming down the store
she lays his guts out on the ground

in the radiance of living here
the mighty are drunk on the floor
they are too bold to come to me
and dance in the light dressed storm
when I leave through your chamber door
throw out your demands
go fast go fascist go fast escape

All rats racing
Hearts are pacing
Never end defending enemies clash
Years they're waiting

Run the big gun
That's a big gun

This could be anywhere
It's vacant everywhere

A call, a voice, a shake, divided crown
The ones you'd love to see all drown
In all the meaning they give their lives
Their life, their love, their push to shove
Life love push shove

Smash a face in
Heart just caved in
Let's meet up at the tv station
Everyone and their good intentions

Run the big gun
That's a big gun

I swam in and out and up and out of the tank
Down and out and up and on to the bank
Top that I'm not giving anymore
fuck that I'm not giving you anymore
It's a lot to say when I'm not awake
And you're probably waiting for the shit to hit the fan
That's ok it's on its way as fast as it can
many lights are burning brightly far down below

but she might never come
I laughed I cried I died while lying awake
The hurt the earth behind me closing the gates
Top that I'm not giving anymore
fuck that I'm not giving you anymore
It's a lot to say when I'm not awake
And you're probably waiting for the shit to hit the fan
That's ok it's on its way as fast as it can
many lights are burning brightly far down below

All that I've been given is all that I've been given around you
What you want to do for me is not enough never enough

Fall into the pale
that's right we fall in to the pale
as all the wind blows in the sails
everybody fall into the pale

Ah ah ah ah ah
A revolution away

Wrapped inside the ribs
A home to all that justifies
The existential miscreant
Forcing us to testify

Can I get a witness to this crime
Find a kiss to fit this valentine
Population 1945
I don't mind

It's best to not expect the best
That's the best you can do

Show me like a spade
A loss of all the trust inside
Matriarchal transient
Breaking down your walls and mine

Can I get a witness to this crime
Watching generation x decline
I don't mind

It's best to not expect the best
That's the best you can do
