down on the highway

approaching noon, no one's looking out for you
approaching dusk, it's all the same thing
you're not black or white
you're just varying shades of blue

you've still got hope, a thousand faces passing you
you've still got breath, it moves like a lonely ghost
you're not chasing life
she just sits, heavy, anchoring you

and you were suffering
and i was watching you
down on the highway

should I be on my way
forget I saw you
down on the highway

I hate to say, but anger chases sympathy away
what can I write, to fight those feelings
please make a plan
please help yourself to stand

and you were suffering
and I was watching you
down on the highway
down on the highway

why can't you make it back
what demon captured you
down on the highway
down on the highway

yesterday's only a figment of your imagination
and tomorrow's just a fairy tale
and today's your jail

approaching midnight, tonight you'll hold your sleep so well
approaching summer, the sky whispers to you
now your mind's alive
with tiny bubbles holding dreams
never let them go

once you were young and strong
potential lives inyou
so listen closely
just listen closely

what was that plan you had
can you remember you
the one and only
the one and only

and you were suffering
and we're all watching you
down on the highway
down on the highway
lay it on

you've got a solution
for my lack of emotion
starts with a little game
you always play the same way
lay it on, lay it on, lay it on

you feel the cool stones
i keep nestled in my pocket
so you tear me to pieces
there's no sign of blood so repeat it
i play along, play along, lay it on

have you ever tried
sparking up a crystal icing
for your memories
make believe they happened that way
it's a game in which i wander away
oh i know that you don't relate

gifted as a prairie fox
you brush aside your red locks and
lay it on, lay it on, lay it on
you're trapped in disdain
while i dissolve in your life like a dye
i wait so long for this song lay it on

have you ever tried
sparking up a crystal icing
for your memories
make believe they happened that way
take every little frame
and stain it with a little glaze
it's a game i play in which i don't let you in
oh i just push you aside

you've got solution for my lack of emotion
lay it on, lay it on, lay it on

have you ever tried
sparking up a crystal icing
for your memories
make believe they happened that way
oh take every little frame
and stain it with a little glaze
have you ever tried
conjuring a crystal icing
it's a game i play in which i don't let you in
i just push you aside

with a thousand little white lies
oh i just push you aside
when you lay it on, lay it on, lay it on
pockets

forgot my armor
forgot my tools
forgot your eyes
a moment or two
but what a difference
oh what a difference
the best of friends share everything
with no exception to this fling
why did you leave me?
oh why did you leave me?

late at night i feel so cold
sometimes i think you're telling me to go
are you listening
oh dear you're dropping out

when i lie in bed
i still wait for you
i'm distracted by another kiss
that don't hold true
all of my pockets are bare
and i won't know how to fly again
i won't know
how to make friends with the right boy
or the right choice

come on honey and pinch me please
wake me from this terrible dream
you're lying next to me
a page away from me
usually i'm not so bold
usually i'm not so cold
when are you coming back?
oh when are you coming back?

when i lie in bed
i still wait for you
all the outside girls
they finger curls and lipstick and shoes
all of my pockets are empty
and i won't know how to fly again
i won't know
how to make plans with the nice boy
oh he's just a nice toy

when i lie in bed
i still wait for you
there's no telling when the crying ends
when will i come to?
all of my pockets are empty
and i won't know how to fly again
i won't know
how to make friends with the right boy
frigid air

do you want to see the hell i'm under
i know you'd like to see the cracks i've covered
baby doll when you think of me
do you?

look i don't really wanna be discouraged
shouldn't let you take away my courage
do you wanna be there when i slip?

oh you wouldn't be a man
tried too hard to understand
you just packed up your gear
headed for the nearest tear

you thought i owed you every sunday
like a bloody girlfriend tore off one day
oh did you figure we were meant to screw?

i could never be your man
i may never understand
i'd wipe away your tears
and still you'd disappear

oh was i driving you in deep
deep into a frigid air
searching for a sweet
searching for a little air
why won't you come up?
let's wash it all away

if you're innocent then i'm the devil
if i'm the devil then i must be lost
i can't tell cause i'm choking on your exhaust

oh you hate that i avoid
so you call in all your boys
how do i explain the meaning of our golden years

oh was i driving you in deep
deep into a frigid air
searching for a sweet
searching for a little air
why won't you come up?
let's wash it all away
angelina

chameleon from hell and she won't refuse
her drugs, her fairies, or her perfume
so put away those cuffs
make believe you've got enough
of your own ideas

watch her change the color of her hair
watch her bathe
witness all the grown ups that still stare
they can never touch her but i'll be different
i will see more

hop into another girl
she whisks herself away
oh they chased her

angelina, sudden girl, oh belle
how you draw them near
all that i can really tell
is i am in love with you

i've got your pictures all over my walls
i imagine what i'd say if you were to ever call me
i can relate
i can even see my face swimming next to yours

hop into another girl
i whisk myself away
you chased me here
now i want to stay

angelina, sudden girl, oh belle
how you draw them near
all that i can really tell
is i am in love
angelina, sudden girl
i just warn you
i love your disguise
i envy your soft lies and even complexion

call me silly, call me a liar
she'll set your pants on fire
you wouldn't even know that it's her
she slid into you're bedroom wearing my perfume
i watch you slip

angelina, sudden girl, oh belle
won't you draw me near
all that i can really tell is that i am in love
angelina, sudden girl, won't you draw me near?
i've got your pictures all over my walls
i imagine what i'd say if you were to ever call me

i just warn you
falling

don't hesitate boy
just give me it straight boy
don't live on the tape boy
don't live on the tape boy

jump onto which star
just please tell him how far
don't stay up, don't wait up
don't live well, don't feel

falling ain't so bad
if you're killing some time
truth makes him worry
that they'll eat him alive
the force on the way
makes little sense now
if i fly into stay
will it feel so bad still?

don't hesitate boy
just give me that tape boy
get off of your cellular
give me a whirl

just like your sis joanie
you plan to kiss only
lens fire, tape wire, records and wine
too fine

falling ain't so bad
if you're killing some time
truth it's a bunk journey
you're dressed to the nines
his heart's on his sleeve
he's on his hands and knees
but too proud to beg
don't even wait anymore

falling ain't so bad
if you're killing some time
with peace ions and a little sacrifice
you may decide to stay
maybe fall a little into my arms

with each day the window
opens up to another world
and the waiting is over
don't hesitate boy
pedophile

his own flesh and blood uses his christian name
from a small pinky dangles a lock of his
shiny red hair with just a few strands of grey

his vicious wife is gone
everyone round him applauds
freedom restored he bathes in little girl flesh
flesh and blood

feeling like fire is burning his ace
and no one around to acknowledge disgrace
because he leaves no trail of visible blood

the young skin it draws him away
miles of hurricane field turn to fresh yielding clay
have you some friends, he asks
the little girl from new orleans
he entices her with promises of grass

she called round then ran out and brought everyone
only to feed hin right through til they're gone
and the he asks for more
oh heaven help him!
perfect plan

do you feel guilty
or do you feel relieved
are we as alike
as we always seemed to be
have you your bliss yet
do you think that we'll join up again

tossing our saturdays to skating
and dirty haiku
our feet melting in our shoes
we walked through each day
with a perfect plan
a plan for ever and ever and ever

then we tossed saturdays to smoking
and dirty haiku
our minds melting, melting, melting
formative years spent apart and still i wonder
if we'd been together would we still sever
no we wouldn't be the same

in all of our chats of who's better
who's really seen more
and who's thinner, and who's stronger

you wait like a terrier
scratching at the barrier
can't decide to be inside or out
can't live in this town
can't live with me
or live without most anything
but look at me, just look at me

In all of our chats of who's better
who's really seen more
and who's richer, and who's wiser
oh we really kept score

but i'm telling you audrey
oh audrey, baby please understand
i wanted you and i had it planned
but you've always been so impatient
pound your fist, demand

oh I don't have your body
and you do not have my lips
but you do spend your assets well
just hit them with your tits
but wait- and don't get mad
i know how you value a straightforward girl
but just look at me
i'm straight as a rail

in all of our chats of who's better
who's really seen more
and who's different
from every other fucking bore we know

i'm telling you audrey
oh audrey, baby please understand
i wanted you and i had it planned
but you've always been so impatient
pound that fist and demand
matter of time

how do i fight the urge
to cheat and disappear
i know that i'm dying each year
i fork my own heart
oh why must we be apart
maybe it's just a matter of time

don't answer me please
i hear all your silent pleas
let go and glide away on the ice

oh you forget all the fights and specialty knives
and glow as your settling down

to ponder his wave
his eyes, oh this endless haze
maybe it's just a matter of time

oh i'll refuse to step inside
oh i won't stray, i'll simply hide
and tear as your settling down

to fork my own heart
oh why must we be apart
maybe it's just a matter of time
maybe it's just a matter of time
not so easy

I see a little red in the whites of your eyes
you'll see heaven if you just come outside
it's not difficult
not impossible
you're just lying low

and in our minds alone we stand up
and in our minds alone we speak up
and in our minds alone we won't give up
we just want o be so brave and wonderful
then we change our minds
oh it's not so easy

be like boustead
everyone is sick in the head
he laughs at his brothers
all the while
he is fixing them a bag of tools and teas
why can't you be sweet, why can't you be
more like that

i see a little green in the depths of your eyes
you see fantasies half-baked in the skies
oh it's not original, not enticing
oh you're just lying low

and in our minds alone we stand up
and in our minds alone we speak up
and in our minds alone we feel up
the forbidden ones
and don't we wanna know
what the price will be
now you've got a lot on me

but another solstice has passed
and though you've long since given up looking for
the wonderful woman
you've been promising your heart you'd find
then you open your eyes
and she's there

naked and your filtering
all the frailties like your eyes have
swept over, deciphering
they're deciphering you instead and
everyone around you
thinks you've gotten over your head
but notice, no one's watching you
no one wants to feel your dread
oh and he said what's happening to me
and i said it's not so easy

in our minds alone we stand up
and in our minds alone we speak up
and in our minds alone we feel up
and in our minds alone we wont give up
and we want to be brave
and we want to be wonderful
and yes we have time for the scrutiny of drive
