Lyrics

Now listen boy, tell me boy, were you polite like your mother told
I really hate to see you cry

Tell me boy, yeah that a boy, are you sincere to your other joy
You know you’d hate to see her go

Damnit boy, it’s not a toy, it’s a false sense of pride and joy
I’d really hate to see you go
Tell me boy, you’re ready boy
I don’t have time to see you cry

Tell me boy, yeah that a boy, do you respect that your mother told
I don’t have time to see you cry

Lyrics

Were those words you said to me or were you just blowing smoke
I never laughed as hard as when you gave me that look that said
“I’d like to get to know you,” but I believe that you mistook
my heart for sticks and twigs that you could burn instead of woo-ooo-ood

Colors in the nighttime, baby, stretched across the sky
as you rocked back and forth and then you covered up my eyes
with hands that I could see right through, they were transparent and cold as ice
and melted in the morning before I could think twii-iii-ice

My pockets filled with stones from every moment I recall, you were one and then another and then nobody at all
My pockets filled with stones, etc, you were one and then another and then nothing at aaa—all

But you wasted it like water, dripping from your kitchen sink
onto all the broken dishes and the blood dried like red ink that spilled
from you fountain pen, without any time to think
about the words unspoken now, well, baby don’t blink
before I give you one last glance, before I turn myself around
and walk right out the door, so silent, without the soooo-oound
that you’re so used to hearing, coming right out of my mouth
falling from my lips but never getting off the grouu-oou-ound

Pockets, stones, etc

Lyrics

I left my life when I was barred from the gates of my home
An hour too fart east and I’m a criminal in somebody’s eyes
Now there instead I’m a savage, I’m an alien
We realize what we lost once the rapture is gone
I’m sorry I’d say if it’s the key to the hills of the soil
But I’m a too far west, well I’m a criminal in my mother’s eyes
I sit alone and I think until my body is numb
Or I can stand and strum until I get to go home
But it’s too late.

The days seem longer and your friends move on and I’m tired, working hard, living without you
A cold winter it sure seems bitter from the outside as the season changes
You can’t find love until you fall

I pass my time through the clouds to the city above
But I’m a too far north and I’m a criminal in my father’s eyes
A couple of bucks for booze and a ticket to ride
I think I’ll stick around until I get to go home
But it’s too late

The days seem longer and your friends move on and I was tired, working hard, living without you
A cold winter was long and bitter from the outside as the seasons changing
You can’t find love until you fall
Ah da da da…

Lyrics

We started off in the morning
A few stops before Strawberry Hill
With the sweet taste of glory
To dampen our minds for the night

A few tears will dry, by the dawn we sipped the light
We’ve got a good life

A Made a fool the next night
Whatever slipped my mind
We split away on a Sunday
Our lingering smiles for the drive

Then we stole the flowers by the road and jumped the vibe
We’ve got a good life

Hello Mother and Father
We remember the ride to the bay
We settled into our playground
And left her for a while, for the wild

Her cold glare was hard, but she can never lose a smile
We’ve got a good life

A Mission for the good stuff
Thank God for Lou by the dock
But Goddamn the mayflies
As if you could spoil the night

A stroll through the town with a cheap bottle of wine
We’ve got a good life

We played poor on a Monday
Then we danced and sang until the hat was full
Then he came from Boston
We drowned the room in the 2-Hearted Ale

Then we turned the silver to the spice of the night
We’ve got a good life

We sailed away from the island for the warmth of her home
Well they ain’t strangers anymore
We dragged back our rolling stone
And filled the palace with noise

A damn tangled mess, an array of broken hearts
We’ve got a good life

Lyrics

I admire your intentions, I admire your style
I’m astonished day by day, boy it’s good to see you smile
Had your mother never saved you, had your lover never cried
Your chosen poison can only get you so high
Nod asleep for a moments rest, woken by a pal
But you know not to blame her cause it’s your own goddamn fault
You threw away your baby, but she could tolerate your vile mind
Go cry, you lose, you can sleep it off

I admire his decision to let his weapons fall
He lost his ammunition, but he certainly made the right decision

We can try to break the metal down
To a state that resembles summers past
For a moment, I couldn’t see it last
(You’re alone, you’re lonely because you want to)

You care a lot about him, but you can’t forgive the gal
Misery loves company, but why the hell did you choose this side
She’s got a genuine smile, and you can see that she takes good care of your boy
If your grudge is a lock, I got a shiny axe we can cut these chains
But would you rather see him drown, in his misery
Would you rather see him drown, because misery loves company

I admire your intentions, I admire your style

Lyrics

if you would be honest, babe
and I think that you could be
and if you could be honest, babe
then I think that you would be

we can sit on the grass
happy with the time that’s passed
but we can’t go on like this
no no no not like this.

Smoke curls from your fingers and wraps around mine.

Lyrics

I’m Locked & Dry
So stick a needle in my eye
Because the best I’ve yet to see hold me dear
I’m Locked & Dry
I believe time will help me find
A solemate soon to come hold me dear

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Was to know that you love me for who I am

You wanna cry
Or shoot the needle to get by
Though the best you’ve yet to see hold you near
You can’t get high
It doesn’t matter how hard you try
Deliver me from pain and fear

Lyrics

With bright stars shining so peaceful when I lay my head down
Then one day I wandered into this Little German Town
Just drifting and dreaming without a thought of settling down
Until the day I saw you here (in this Little German Town)

Those blue eyes looking at me
Then our eyes met and lingered in this Little German Town
Was a friendship that grew to a desire so warm and renown
We vowed to share our lives here (in this Little German Town)

Now all our dreams we share with each other
Hand in hand through life we go in this Little German Town
I feel a warmth when you are near
Here two hearts beat as one (in this Little German Town)

And when you touch or smile at me
I feel as though I’m wearing a crown
Life with you is a pleasure
With just a few soft kind words
All my troubles can drown
You make my life so complete in this Little German Town

When I fall to my last rest here would you lay me down
For I have found happiness in this German Town
Yes I have found happiness in this Little German Town

Lyrics

I’m getting tired of crossing my fingers
I’ve lost touch from all the exclusion
A big house is only a building
And good friends won’t ever forget you

But who would lay awake to find out why

A warm day will give me that feeling
So why stay when the seasons are changing
A new home is hard to imagine
But good friends are easy to come by

But who would lay awake to find out why
I miss you every night when I try to make the change

I’m ready to run, I’m ready to go
Take me back home
These walls are alright for a couple of nights but from a couple of months
I’m ready to run, I’m ready to go
Take me back home

I’m getting tired of crossing my fingers ooh yeah
When I try to make the change
