The Wild Thing In The Woods

The fever went away so ly
The heat felt good – like someone kissed me
I fell through dark and into darkness
My hands reach out, not sure I want this

My skin is fire and flames
I'm so changed and strange

The wild thing in the woods
It was the wild thing in the woods
It's not what I already lost
It's what I'm going to loose
To the wild thing in the woods

I've got open arms like a broken puppet
Falling backwards into the forest
Nothing here to see but shadows
The sound of souls begging to move on

It's an angels wish
It's myself I can't fix

The wild thing in the woods
It was the wild thing in the woods
It's not what I already lost
It's what I'm going to loose
To the wild thing in the woods
Yeayeayeayea the wild thing in the woods

It's the wild thing – I'm the wild thing in the woods

There's A Ship

I got a lord of my own
& I got him at home
He's the one that I trust
Not to say I must
He is a friendly guy
He used to live in the sky
But then I gave him my key
& now he lives with me
He is not the holy ghost
Or my father nor my son
If I should give him any name
It would be: Captain Fun

There's a ship There's a ship
Sailing by Sailing by
There's a ship There's a ship
Sailing by Sailing by
There's a ship There's a ship
Sailing by Sailing by
There's a ship In the sky
Sailing by Sailing by

& I know if I try
He will always stand by
If I should laugh & cheer
I'll know he's here
He's like E.T. if you're askin' me
But he wears this plastic bubble
& that gave us trouble
Coz he's from the sky
& without it he would die
People ask: Whats that?
I reply: That's Capt. Spacehat

There's a ship...
Halleluja....

Time Swallows Time

If you hide; the kid inside
The more you live; the more he dies
That's the cost of livin
Always taking, never giving

Give up things, that won't come back
'Coz what you lost was all you had..
I look around to see
Is there anyone like me?

I'll close my eyes and try to understand
All there's left of my rock is a grain of sand..

Time swallows time and
And year swallows year
Time swallows time
And all the time it disappears
Time swallows time

Float around, stay low and wait
I close my mouth around the bait
Pull it when you're able
I'm a goldfish on a table

Believing things that isn't true
There's a kid inside of you
And you don't hear him crying
But slowly he's dying...

I'll close my eyes and try to understand
All there's left of my rock's a grain of sand

Time swallows time
And year swallows year
Time swallows time
And all the time it disappears
Time swallows time
And year swallows year
- I guess it does; it's this time a year

All the time just disappears
I guess it does; it's this time a year
Time swallows time
And down the throat next year slips
Time swallow time
And year licks it's lips

Too Deep for Me

Yeah there's a difference
The eye can barely see
You can be so charming
When you want something from me
The way that my dream's kicked around
The sky is so blue, but it's red all over the ground
Still it's a difference
But I see…

They call you famous
But people think you're insane
You're really just faceless
It's only a role you play

A lot of confusion
In what to believe
Is it a sin or a weakness
When nothing new appeals
Still when you ask how I feel
I need to send out a message
I'm ready to kill
Confrontations
The eye can barely see
But I see…

I have lived too long
In a different world
How do spacemen land
Without getting hurt
And all we ever wanted
Was put into silent stone
It's too deep for me
To cross alone…

Trucker

I grew up under a stetson® in Omaha...
But my mama she told me
I wouldn't go far
Now I'm out on the highway
Every night & day
Just driving the cattle
From N.Y. to L.A.

Me & my 18 wheeler
Across the USA
Me & my 18 wheeler
Every night & day

Now my mom & dad are proud to see
The stickers on my window
And my Disneyland t·ee
The diesel engine take me away
Way across the USA

Chorus

Singing: Yiiiiipiiiii - yiiiiipiiiii yiiiiipiiaai
This diesel engine takes me away
Singing: Yiiiiipiiiii - yiiiiipiiiii yiiiiipiiaai
Way across the USA

True Believer

I have my hair high and low
Anywhere the wind blows
I'm doing M.P.H anywhere my soul goes
I'm hell riding and gasoline d
That's all I need for the life that I lead

I'm a true believer Yes I am
You try and get me if I can

Yeah! I'm riding alone and I've drugged my senses
There's no one else to take the consequences
See when the is gone free & the night creeps up on me
I take my B.M.W that's where I wanna be...

I'm a true believer Yes I am
And you try to get me if you can
Get me! Honk!! Honk!!! Argh.!!
True believer Yes I am.
True believer Yes I am..
True believer Yes I am...
True believer Yes I am...

Tyrants

The noise that breaks the sleep, it's deep calling the deep
The ship goes up and down
All the curtains drawn, the lamps are early on
On top, a hundred dawns
The day we stayed inside, the trunks began to slide
Nor awake or nor dressed
Portholes dark and green, over the side into the deep
You know if you haven't guessed
Six white sharks and the sailors sing - out loud

Wouw wouw wouw
Another tyrant will rise
Wouw wouw wouw
Violent sea, violent skies

Un Frappe Sur La Tête

Lying low now - yeah, for a year or two
And I mean it - untill the week is through
Just myself now - and the stains to be explained
Phone and cancel - stay in and be a saint
But, a whistle - and I'm like a dog again ..
Celebrating - yeah, it's great to stay up late

One kick in the head
I was asking for it
Une frappe sur la tête
I've been begging for it
Yeah, a slap in the face
Yeah, famous last words

Every nightmare turns out to be the same
Through the forest - I'm howling out my name

In my bedroom - the dogs won't catch the fox
I've got business - a bit more than I thought
But, I ain't talking - I don't know what it's about
I hold my hand out - yeah I'm such a naughty boy

One kick in ...

Everybody - should know about my curse
But, I say talking, will only make it worse
Keep me quiet - whispers in my mouth
Come and watch me! Like cats around a mouse
I need a punchline - to bring the house down..
All my old ones - will make you cry n turn around

One kick in ...

Unexplained

I hope my mind is like a parachute
I hope it opens on time
I know the same as I knew before
All is lost inside
I know that I must turn and strip
All the armour from my heart
I must stop all this
From going wrong
It mustn't show on the outside
A broken brain
With the truth
To be as bad as it takes
Yeah to be a true saint
In the name of the unexplained
Ain't gonna give 'em no rest
This is serious business
In the name of the unexplained
I know that life's real mystery
Maybe further out than death
If I know everything about the world
I wish I knew a little less
We all stare at the ground
Hands in pockets going round 'n' round
Abuse and irony hurting me
The blisters on my tongue
The shamefaced shuffle
The tightlipped smile
Taste your medicine
I know who I am
And so do you
It just goes round and round
I know my mind
Is like a hurricane
And I will blow you all away

Unowned

I found a way of payin' off old debts
Always make more promises, than you can break
An argument that calls for more
Ends with a cold message on the freezer's door
Where there's a will; there's a won't..
From I to "we" - but still unowned..
Read it between the lies
When someone's asking someone something
Then you're proved, that is's a dumb thing
You're telling a drowning man, not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat, who's lost his oars..

Going through your things; but nothing's new
A wild imagination with the tightest view...
Our voodoo dolls are full of holes
- You learned by going, where you had to go
Where there's will, there's a won't..
From I to "we" - but still unowned
Read it between the lies
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
You're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars..
Yeah, yeah..
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
Yeah! You're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars..

'Found a way of payin' off old debts
Always make more promises than you can break
An argument that calls for more
Ends with a cold message on the freezer's door
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
Yeah, you're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars...

Up, Up Over The Mountain Top

Well, me, my wife and our daugther
We found ourselves standing in New York
It was just a mile? of? land? and it was hard to understand
But we bought it from the indian on the run

Yeah, there we were me and daddy
We were travelling through the desert all alone
We were pinely? south? of west?
We were ? just a test?
And we could get up up on the mountain top

Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain top, once again
Come on up up on the mountain toooop

By the time that she had reached
The inspiration point
I saw her with an indian
Sharing a joint
Then before I could get up
Close enough to shout stop
The indian had already done his job

Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain toooop

Yipiiiieee

Come on up up on the mountain top, once again
Come on up up on the mountain top, one more time
Come on up up on the mountain top

Yeah, we were me and daddy
We were travelling through the desert all alone
We were pinely? south? of west?
We were ? just a test?
And we could get up up on the mountain top

Come on up up on the mountain top
Come on up up on the mountain toooop
Mountain toop
Come on up up on the mountain top, one more time
Come on up up on the mountain top, once again
Come on up up on the mountain top, for the last time
Come on up up up on the mountain top

We All Fall Down

All three wishes used
And the world is not amused
The door to your heart's still shut
A truckfull of flowers ain't love
Sorry's not enough

A brand new broken heart
Needs breaking in
Needs breaking in to start
To see it a whole new way
I wish you could hear what I say

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
I just couldn't turn myself around

And we're digging up the past
Your own karma bites your ass
Like the invisible man in the rain
Your covers blown my friend
We're slipping once again

But in the midnight of everything
You turn yourself
And wonder where you've been
For all the truth in the world
I couldn't see it I just observed

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
We can't turn ourselves around
I'll always wonder how
What's lost, can be found
Are you there if I dare turn around?
I'm there if you dare turn around

In the midnight of everything
We'll be slipping again
We'll be slipping again
