cherry
don't wait for me
greatest thing
let it go
mockin' fate
the best prescription pill available
(what keeps you) keepin' on?
why I can't relate
modern dances


don't wait for me
chain, chain of cancerous days
i never knew you were so insane
each time the story is ending it starts all over again.
make, make, you're making a move
i didn't know you were so uncool
i'm so sick of your legislation
everyday is dead end ending all over again.

chorus:
don't wait for me
because I think I've had enough of this second rate love.

chain, chain of masquerades
you never listened to a word I said.
each day the orphans are calling "won't you come out to play?"
yeah, yeah, whatever it's cool.
I'd take anything in lieu of you.
you and your misrepresentations
everyday is a drain straight into an open grave.

chorus

the best prescription pill available
i found you in my wishing well.
i didn't want to be there when you cast your spell on me
but there i was, a california angel at the back of the bus, uh-huh.
you and me the great nowhere-to-go,
and you were such a devil standing in the way of the back row.
it's such a thrill,
the best prescription pill available
and I wish I was on my way to you my love.

i can't sleep. it's sad as hell.
i didn't want to be marching up and down this Sisyphus hill.
but here i am, where the rock goes rollin' down the hill again, uh-huh.
you and me i can't get enough,
your confidence is turning every page within my book of love.
it's such a thrill
the best prescription pill available
and i wish i was on my way to you my love.

(what keeps you) keepin' on?
control, controlling no one, and the losing of control of everyone.
everyone has to look into the face of love.
believe. believe in no one. or you may lose the belief in yourself.
watch yourself. you don't need to be afraid of anyone.

chorus:
so when you've lost control and you're a blackened soul
and all of your body is drawn, what keeps you keepin' on?
so when you've lost control and you're a blackened soul
and all of your body is drawn, what keeps you keepin' on is love.
it's love.

the shame in shaming no one. or the placing of the thoughts into words
say the words, i don't need to be afraid, need to be afraid of myself.
the change is changing no one. and the changing of the first into last
won't come to pass, but you don't need to be afraid of love.

chorus

the shame in shaming no one. or the placing of the thoughts into words.
say the words.

greatest thing
mulling over the time now past from within this lookin' glass,
i could use some sorting out.
all the motives from the devil's hotel on display at show-n-tell
and I'm used to having doubts.
but I won't let it get me down 'cos that's not what I'm on about.
you are the greatest thing that's happened to me
but I can't let you know what I know.

fascination with what you don't have isn't cut out to last
and my evenings go awry.
pay attention. these wounds of love are busy healing up just to have another try.
well I'm not here to save your life but I'd hoped that you might save mine
'cos you are the greatest thing that's happened to me
but I can't let you know what I know.

~top~

why I can't relate
i don't want none. i don't need none so get it away from me.
i never had none from day one and i wouldn't change a thing.
well alright! well alright! come on and make a sound
well alright! well alright! and turn the world around.
i'm sayin' i don't want to be a part of this anymore

chorus:
i don't wanna love and don't wanna hate
i don't wanna build and don't wanna break
i don't wanna give and don't wanna take
i don't wanna know why I can't relate

i'm a lost cause and i'm a loose dog and nobody lights the way.
i'll come and get ya to forget ya just to pass the time away.
well alright! well alright! come on and make a sound
well alright! well alright! and turn the world around.
i'm sayin' i don't want to be a part of this anymore

chorus

~top~

mockin' fate
well if you've never known what you want, you'll never know what you need.
you run around talkin' bout a suicide, you're feelin' short of incomplete.

well i 'mo tell you where i been and i 'mo tell what I seen.
a black cat bone fuckin' Jesus Christ, i seen and been with everything

chorus:
and I'm mocking fate.
I'm mocking fate.
so get outta my face
I'm everything that you hate.

i'm here to unbatten the hatch. i'm here to lift every latch.
cover my body in gasoline and honey I'll light the match.

when everything cool is gone and everything's a strip mall
and they've taken everything that's dazzling, i 'mo break down the walls

chorus

well i 'mo tell you what i want and all of it's against the law.
you set it on a platter right in front of me and honey I'll want it all.

when everything cool is gone and everything's a strip mall
and rock-n-roll's a part of antiquity, i'll come and kill the king with a pawn

chorus

cherry
cherry came out to visit my broken heart.
cherry made out with everything from the start.
but you're in on your own and you're out on your own
and maybe if you're lucky people leave you alone.
I told her this and said that she was looking like a loaded gun.
but it's all right.
cherry never hurt no one.
it's all right, get on your own.
you can't draw blood from a rolling stone

chorus:
and it's easy to see she's comin' for me. (X4)
think it over, get it over
and it's all right! yeah it's all right.
'cos it's cherry. man, she's all right.

cherry flew back to old l.a. ca.
cherry broke it off with everyone that day.
she said the devil in me is dying to meet
the devil in you for a cup of tea
she told me this and said that she was felling like a loaded gun
but it's all right
cherry never hurt no one
it's all right, she's already packed.
I'm taking that girl to venus and back

chorus

~top~

let it go
you wake up staring at the face of another day
that only gets in the way of who you feel you need to be.
you put your favorite look on your face and you walk into yourself in this maze you've made
and you're the only one to blame.
my walls are closing in, I reek of stolen gin, and my head is heavy with your memory.
I can't forget the look on your face the day your love took the place of me.

chorus:
baby can we let it go? 'cos I don't even wanna know
why everything within me has known you for eternity.
when you and your civil war forget what you're fighting for
come and look at me straight in the face with everything you're wanting to say.

you acted as though you knew how to carry your weight.
you love to play around with fate and you made mess out of the best of me.
you read the writing on the wall and you made the least sense of it all.
oh, please,
oh please,
oh please,
would you stand up on your own two feet?
I lost my common sense caterwauling on your fence and I tried to deal with your calamity
but I can't forget the look on your face the day that you took the place of me.

chorus

modern dances
says this kid from the bar who claims he twice was shot
remember who you are but don't forget who you're not.
and the girls are doing modern dances
trying to forget their circumstances
and they dance all night to the back of the beat.
all night they do it to the city streets
and all night they keep the best secrets
they will not tell because they like to tease.
is fame your god given name?
if we get married can mine be the same?
torn up shirts and ripped up skirts
are lining the floor as the morning lurks
in disguise. can we hide the disguise?

here comes one-way ann. she's off the wagon again
with coca cola keys (she's on a three day bend)
making out with all the modern dancers
trying to forget her circumstances
and more than anyone she's been around the block.
all night - she'll fuck until a million o'clock.
all night - she carries all the aces
she look straight through your best poker face
is fame your god given name?
if we get married can mine be the same?
with torn up shirts and ripped up skirts
lining the floor as the morning lurks
in disguise. can we hide the disguise?
