lyrics

There's No Sky (Oh My My) Babe I shot your songbird in your ribcage, it sang so hurt.  Now the voice ain't so soft and trill, now there's no yearning at the windowsill, safely say those wings have hardened.  Oh my my, there's no sky, i took to limit all things wild in you from soaring skews about how you've been aloof, there's not one good bone in this man.  No ruffles, and no flaps, on the front porch, stoic cold stance, said the stairs look frightfully steep, brushed away my knee crawl pleas to eat, left your most precious gifts unguarded.  Oh my eyes are not blind and yes, my memory serves me fine, i'm aware, the blood is there on my nails, my teeth, and my mind, there's not one strong bone in this man.  No sky baby, there is no sky, no sky baby, there is no sky.  Babe your a cold touch to the skin, slowly leaving without motion, caused an earthquake in my chestplate, redefined the depths of what i just could not take, far beneath those skies uncharted.  Oh my my, there's no sky, i took to limit all things wild in you, abandoned views about why we share a room, there's not one dead bone in this man.        

Beggar sincere Don't make me beg, don't you babe, give my pardon late, i've been sincere, as a middle man.  Don't kick your words, cause your sure that there is no wrong, when you stand strong, i'll ask you if your cured.  Baby, you always say that i keep you down, no fair, i walk on stilts and i've been your bones, i'm finding it hard to believe that your mind's not blown.  There were things said, turned you red, my defense ain't glass, this doldrum ass rides the rip again.  Oh it's unruly, the way you walk, you're always pulling much like my dog.  Don't make me beg, don't you babe, give my pardon late, i've been sincere as a beggar can.  Baby you always say that i keep you down, no fair, i'm in your hair and i chose your gown and i'm finding it hard to believe that your mind's not blown.        

Always Wrong  Cause the girls don't turn their heads, we're getting old and mentionless, it pulls for a second so straighten your chin, pump your fist and you're back again and now it's cold in my body and cold on the stairs, cold in my shockingly sparse nightmares and i froze all the memories that make me blush, pushed you away and your eyeballs gushed and it was hard to put my straight face on because i'm always gone, always wrong and this is all of my fears, no swan dive, it's duck and get down.  Oh, my head is a backwards siv, i filled it up and the concrete drips and the abstract sticks to the floor no less, pick it up and you've failed the test and still it's cold in my body and cold on the stairs, cold when i strike a pose to be spared and i froze all the memories that make you fuss, pulled at your sleeve but you couldn't be rushed and it was hard to put my straight face on because i'm always gone, always wrong, and this is all of my fears, no swan dive, it's duck and get down.        

 stuffed  Turn out the lights when you leave, blow out my knees, hurdles too high, find myself underneath.  Candle flame stings like a bee, floats like a leaf, shots put me down, under an empty tree.  And we could starve, a day after stuffed, nothing of love drawn in the cards, and we both sink.  Floating like scum in the bath, it's a long jump to have, aimed for the sand, a week on the beach began.  Not going, not going, not ever going to turn back, i'm not going, i'm not going, not ever going to turn back, not now.        

No Mindless Love    Oh it's so nice to find you, split lip, chipped up and blind to all my quipless loving taunts, and when at last we come to, squib kick painful thought through to you, but you return them everytime, you've got the one up in your spine,  and it's been a push comes to shove partly competition expose in which we partake and it's got a few and select fan base, it's us and fists we shake, yeah but this ain't no mindless love, it's not one i'd puff my way out of so i'm not going to hate you for this argument.  Oh how we seldom go back, retreat to strategic backstabs, then you vanish when i say, go head and bleed the dog dead, i planted your two cats in the garden, now cry so hard you dehydrate, you should have made the other play.  And i don't want this to be a yellow tape criminal investigation but you're swinging in kicks above my knees and hanging on threads of speculation that this ain't no mindless love, it's not one i would  trade for drugs so don't leave me unbreathing spilt on your rug.  Oh it's so nice to find you, split lip, chipped up and blind to all my quipless loving taunts, and when at last we come to sickening sweet words, sarcastic blues, and i just lost another tooth, but this ain't no mindless love, it looks good dressed in jeans and pumps but apparently this year everybody does.    

The Biggest Nugget Of Them All        I never said boo when it was your move and you stalled, we're not taking it slow, the pedal's floored to smell the wheels' smoke, and then you said how you said, what calms you down, i must have heard wrong, it's lost on me.  Can't live in these dull spins, keep time in your head and don't admit when you're dead, it's the measure of men, to walk away when you want to raise a hand, and then you said how you said what calms you down, i never felt so poorly, it's lost on me.  I lost my gold, and kept my goals, but they're not breathtaking bombshells baby you got cold and i lost my gold.  i never said boo when it was you're move and  you stalled, we're not going for broke, all the way that your head could blow, it blowed, and then you said how you said what calms you down, i must have heard wrong, it's lost on me.  I've lost my gold and kept my goals, but they're not breathtaking bombshells, baby you got cold and i lost my gold.        

Pardono    I get by without a squeeze or a mission flyer, i am trying to mind my mind, and to feel like i'm organized, and feeling right, now if i decided in the mornings to get real high, i can tell that there's nothing like greeting a day that's breaking fresh from night.  i'll give you tolerance if you like life, not just your solo shot, the many kinds, step one would be to recognize before the finger pointing, close your eyes, this may help you to enterprise, before the finger pointing, close your eyes, you will get fat if you eat the prize.  I am in a tragedy where trust is fucked and everything is paper walls and Shakespeare words, styrofoam eyes on hanging birds, i lost my lines, i lost my lines, before i sleep an hour to try, the moon is polished, and now it shines.        

We Have Won        You've got your secret little appetites, come out and they haunt you when it's late at night, ooh baby, i just can't ever leave, i've rolled up my sleeves, and it's always been shake your body to the floor, don't look back, don't be bland, or ever bored, ooh baby, i just can't disagree, it's beneath me, in my head, i feel we've won, you should never ask me how i know that our lifetime's just begun, you should never wonder why i feel that my heart don't beat for fun.  You've got your dirty little jokes to tell, and i always laugh because you tell them well, ooh baby, i just can't ever wait, hesitate, and punchline, shake, shake, and i don't, i don't mind, we've kept this good love from going dry, it seems like a dead end but i swear, we ain't there.  In my head, i feel we've won, you should never ask me how i know that our lifetime's just begun, you should never wonder why i feel that my heart don't beat for fun.  I followed you all the way from thrifty hell, give back my loving whips, whistles, and bells, ooh baby, i tattooed all your flaws on my paws, shake, shake, and i don't, i don't mind, we've kept this good love from going dry, it seems like a dead end but i swear, we ain't there.  In my head, i feel we've won, you should never ask me how i know that our lifetime's just begun, you should never wonder why i feel that my heart don't beat for fun.        

Suave Losin It        Suck the puff out of your cheeks, they've been red, you've been in heat, the story stayed sad and seemless, when the feast arrives we'll murder it.  Hold my head while i eat, we've been starving, scaring ghosts under sheets, we're naked as graves and speechless, coined the term suave losin it.  We look aghast and our feet don't touch  the floor.  We're a far cry from home, won't be heard and it won't get us stoned, no one says fierec, fierce like we  used to when we were all enraged, ablaze, spectacular.  Now bitching bleeds when boasting leaves, about the pageantry of the floor model thieves, we carry our torch bright and it don't die, when it's night, not good, we're not loving it.  But the dying man don't complain cause the dead man don't feel no  pain, we look like trash and our feet don't touch the floor.        

All It Was    You're failing inside, i can't find my ride and i may be a man, you can't understand that nobody cares at all.  You sang songs from your heart, it was barely a start, i fell out of the cab and soiled my pants and nobody cared at all.  And if it's alright, i'll shake hands with you, you're coming on too strong, i hope this rings true to you.  I know what i am, it ain't very much, i'm shorter inside and it's hurt far too long to want to come up and breathe.  No matter how tight, sometimes you'll come untied, you're coming on too strong, but you're still my ride.        

Out Of Your Boots    Media's calling, says story's breaking and the poets are dead, she told me late last night when we'd both been fed, i clear the dishes and arrange this tepid head.  And meteors falling, she says with joint in hand and does the twist, pushes me two step to avoid the risk, says no one's lonely right before the lonely hits until you're loveless.  I'm not going to fake you out of your boots like you've been asking me to with your tired, sunken, salty, caustic eyes and your half held, heart melt truths.    

Love Takes Shots    Loved ones keep your guards up, i'm sweating like a hog, boys can bear their teeth to girls and be scary all night long.  And still somehow love takes shots, it doesn't matter if you're cold or if you're hot, proofs in our favorite soaps and porns where pickup lines don't fail, girls read like braille, but their fingertips don't lie.  Waist high moves that rule you and confuse even your toes, entertain your thoughts at work, ruin good moods with attitude and resent those low cut shirts.  Some girls' hearts are so cold their fingers stopped, the ones they wanted to hold slipped through and dropped and even when they feel warm and loved, no one gives a damn, if they get screwed or if they make romance.  How's about we all get in disguise, i've seen some long clawed bears with blood shot eyes, they're gonna get completely destroyed when they roar by the biting words of a girl smashed like a s'more.  And we know that love takes shots till the bottle is gone or the bullets stop and it's got it's own kind of walk, sometimes it moves so fast you can't keep up, and even when you feel warm and loved, no one gives a damn, if you get screwed or if you make romance.
