Licorice tattoo turned a gun metal blue
Scrawled across the shoulders of a dying town
But the one eyed jacks across the railroad tracks
And the scar on its belly pulled a stranger passing through
He's a juvenile delinquent never learned how to behave
But the cops would never think to look in, in Burma Shave

And the road was like a ribbon and the moon was like a bone
He didn't seem to be like any guy she'd ever known
He kinda looked like Farley Granger with his hair slicked back
She says I'm a sucker for a fella in a cowboy hat
How far are you going he said depends on what you mean
He says I'm only stopping here to get some gasoline
I'm guess I'm going thataway just as long as it's paved
I guess you'd say I'm on my way to Burma Shave

And with her knees up on the glove compartment
She took out her barrettes and her hair spilled out like rootbeer
And she popped her gum and arched her back
Hell Marysville ain't nothing but a wide spot in the road
Some night my heart pounds like thunder
I don't know why it don't explode
cause everyone in this stinking town has got one foot in the grave
And I'd rather take my chances out in Burma Shave

Presley's what I go by, why don't you change the station
Count the grain elevators in the rearview mirror
She said Mister anywhere you point this thing
Has got to beat the hell out of the sting
Of going to bed with every dream that dies here every morning
And so drill me a hole with a barber pole
And I'm jumping my parole just like a fugitive tonight
Why don't you have another swig
And pass that car if you're so brave
I wanna get there before the sun comes up in Burma Shave

And the spider web crack and the Mustang screamed
Smoke from the tyres and the twisted machine
Just a nickel's worth of dreams and every wishbone that they saved
Lies swindled from them on the way to Burma Shave

And the sun hit the derrick and cast a bat wing shadow
Up against the car door on the shot gun side
And when they pulled her from the wreck
You know she still had on her shades
They say that dreams are growing wild just this side of Burma Shave

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told to you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
'cause she's got nowhere to go

And she wonders where these dreams go
'cause the world got in her way
What's the point in ever trying
Nothing's changing anyway

They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But you're falling anyway

And you know I see right through you
'cause the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
You're not listening anyway

So come on you childhood heroes
Won't you rise up from the pages
Of your comic books, your super crooks
And show us all the way

Make your will and testament
Won't you join your local government
We'll have Superman for president
Let Robin save the day

My name is Clarence, and that's no lie
If you don't believe me, ask my mom!
She's over there with with that man she makes me call dad
But he's not my dad, that's Gary.

Everything that I said I'd do
Like make the world brand new
And take the time for you
I just got lost and slept right through the dawn
And the world spins madly on

I did it, but I'm sorry
Well, I'm really not that sorry.
Why are you staring at me like that?
Stop looking at me like that!
Okay, I did it! But... I'm sorry,
But... I'm really not.
Well, maybe, it's like...
It's not you, it's just me.
You know I love you baby!

He's just so tempting
He's addicting,
I'm like an act, I can't help it
I keep going back.

I'm a bad, bad girl,
I kissed that boy again.
He does things to me
That I just can't explain.
Yeah, sure I know better
Promised you I'd quit
Please forgive me baby, for I have sinned.

Yeah, so, I did it,
But I'm sorry, well, not,
Listen, here's my story:
It's just surface, it's so silly
He's so sexy
But that's all, really!
See, the first time that I met him, he was taken.
So I took him.
Ever since then, when I see him,
I try so hard to keep my distance, but,

He's just so tempting
He's addicting,
I'm like an act, I can't help it
I keep going back.

I'm a bad, bad girl,
I kissed that boy again.
He does things to me
That I just can't explain.
Yeah, sure I know better
Promised you I'd quit
Please forgive me baby, for I have sinned.

I'm so sorry
I'm not sorry
I say I am, but really

Well...

I'm a bad, bad girl,
I kissed that boy again.
He does things to me
That I just can't explain.
Yeah, sure I know better
Promised you I'd quit
Please forgive me baby,
I'm just who I am.

I was gonna die alone, I know.
(Gonna die before thirty years old)
I've got this notion that successful careers are evil.
So finally for the holidays
(A gift is coming all y'allz way)
my family will be excited when they look under the Christmas tree

To see a box shrink-wrapped with real gold.
Not paper gold.
It's a fucking box filled to the top
With fucking gold.

Hey, Mom! I got a job I'm not wasting my potential!
Hey, all my friends!
You don't have to hear about blah blah band
who just got a brand new Prevost bus
and forgot my name and used to open for us.
It's getting old, I know.
That's why I'm giving up on rock and roll.

Merry Christmas, Talking Time.

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train
I'm the Underdog
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

Love in technicolour, sprayed out on walls
Well I've been pounding at the pavement
Til there's nothing at all
I got my cloak and dagger
In a bar room brawl
See the local loves a fighter
Loves a winner to fall

Feels like I'm lost in a moment
I'm always losing to win
Can't get away from the moment
Seems like it's time to begin

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train
I'm the Underdog
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

It don't matter
I won't do what you say
You've got the money and the power
I won't go your way
And I can't take for the people
They don't matter at all
And I'll be waiting in the shadows
'Til the day that you fall

Feels like I'm lost in a moment
And I'm always losing to win
Can't get away from the moment
Seems like it's time to begin

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train
I'm the Underdog,
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train

Tell me if you're down
Throw your weapons to the ground
Keep myself riding on this train

Hey bud you're on the wire
Sold yourself for another one
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

It's a motherfucker
Being here without you
Thinking 'bout the good times
Thinking 'bout the bad
And i won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
Getting through a sunday
Talking to the walls
Just me again
But i won't ever be the same
I won't ever be the same

It's a motherfucker
How much i understand
The feeling that you need someone
To take you by the hand
And you won't ever be the same
You won't ever be the same

I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies
And hypotheses can't define how I be droppin' these
Mockeries, lyrically perform armed robbery
Flee with the lottery, possibly they spotted me
Battle-scarred shogun, explosion when my pen hits
Tremendous, ultra-violet shine blind forensics
I inspect you, through the future see millennium
Killer Bees sold fifty gold sixty platinum
Shacklin' the masses with drastic rap tactics
Graphic displays melt the steel like blacksmiths
Black Wu jackets queen B's ease the guns in
Rumble with patrolmen, tear gas laced the function
Heads by the score take flight incite a war
Chicks hit the floor, die hard fans demand more
Behold the bold soldier, control the globe slowly
Proceeds to blow swingin' swords like Shinobi
Stomp grounds and pound footprints in solid rock
Wu got it locked, performing live on your hottest block

I'm sorry to reduce you to this useless imagistic bullshit
But maybe that's all I've got
Yeah maybe that's all I've got
I'm sorry to abuse you with this ruthlessly sadistic music
But maybe that's all I want
I'm just a really pretentious guy.

About the time that Daddy left to fight the big war
I saw my first pistol in the general store
In the general store, when I was thirteen
Thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen
So l asked if I could have one someday when I grew up
Mama dropped a dozen eggs, she really blew up
She really blew up and I didn't understand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

The devil's right hand, the devil's right hand
Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

My very first pistol was a cap and ball Colt
Shoot as fast as lightnin' but it loads a mite slow
Loads a mite slow and soon I found out
It can get you into trouble but it can't get you out
So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45
Called a peacemaker but I never knew why
Never knew why, I didn't understand
Cause Mama said the pistol is the devil's right hand

Well I get into a card game in a company town
Caught a miner cheating I shot the dog down
Shot the dog down, watched the man fall
Never touched his holster, never had a chance to draw
The trial was in the morning and they drug me out of bed
Asked me how I pleaded, not guilty I said
Not guilty I said, you've got the wrong man
Nothing touched the trigger but the devil's right hand

My game of love has just begun

Love runs from my head down to my toes

My love is pumping through my veins

(Play the game)

Driving me insane

It's Summertime, and you know what that means
Gonna head out to the beach, gonna do some beachy things
It's Summertime, and it feels just right
Gonna gather all my friends and we'll party through the night

It's Summertime luh-uh-loving; it's loving in the Summertime (It's Summertime!)
It's Summertime luh-uh-loving; baby why can't you be mine?

The soldier asked my name and did I come here very often
Well I thought that he was asking me to dance
In my holy coat and hat and him in his red bonnet
We'd have made a lovely couple but we never had the chance

And now you say that you've got to go
Well if you must you must
I suppose that you need the sleep of the just

Well it was a powerful day and there were black crows in the road
And I kept my strong opinions to my chest
I suppose I should have told them that I was on fire for you
When the bus burst into flames outside some place, 'The Poet's Rest'

And now you say that you've got to go
Well if you must you must
I suppose that you need the sleep of the just

A girl woke up in a naked light and said "Oh no not again"
He even looked like her brother in the army but she never mentions him
He'll be tucked up in his bed tonight with his dirty-pictures girl
Saying, 'You're some mother's daughter you know or is it
immaterial girl?'

Now she's pinned up upon the barracks wall in her home town
All the soldiers taking turns with their attentions
And as they speculate what she'd look like beneath that thin nightgown
His family pride was rising up as he cast his eyes down

And now you say that you've got to go
Well if you must you must
I suppose that you need the sleep of the just

She took the Oldsmobile out past Condor Avenue
And she locked the car and slipped past
Into rythmic quietude
Lights burning
Voice dry and hoarse
I threw the screen door like a bastard back and forth
The chimes fell over each other
I fell onto my knees
The sound of the car driving off made me feel diseased
Sick shouting like you hear at the fairground
Now I'm picking up to put away anything of yours that's still around
I don't know what to do with your clothes or your letters
It'll make a whisper out of you

She took the oldsmobile out past condor avenue
The fairground's lit a drunk man sits
By the gate she's driving through
Got his hat tipped bottle back in between his teeth
Looks like he's buried in the sand at the beach
I can't think about you driving off to leave barely awake
To take a little nap while the road is straight
I wish that car had never been discovered
They took away the bottle and the hat he was under
That's the one thing that he could never do
And it'll make a whisper out of you

She took the Oldsmobile out past Condor Avenue
Cops were running around the scene
Looking for some kind of clue
They never get uptight when a moth gets crushed
Unless a light bulb really loved him very much
I'm lying down
Blowing smoke from a cigarette
Little whisper smoke signs that you'll never get
You're in your Oldsmobile driving by the moon
Headlights burning bright ahead of you
And someone's burning out, out on Condor Avenue
Trying to make a whisper out of you

What a shitty thing to say
Did you really mean it?
You never said a word to me about what passed between us
So now I'm leaving you alone
You can do whatever the hell you want to

Let's not say what we did
And play by ear
Back to square one

Stay and be
hanged by me
By you

Hell in here,
Must be hell in there,
Large as life and twice as natural
States can be saved without us
Sharing the joy and not of sorrow

Let's all go to Lilly White's party
Let's not reinvent the wheel
Let's not open that can of worms

Runny nose and runny yolk
Even if you have a cold still
You can cough on me again
I still haven't had my fulfill

In the someday what's that sound?

Broken heart and broken bones
Think of how a castrated horse feels
One more quirky cliched phrase
You're the one I wanna refill

In the someday what's that sound?

Most people don't realize
That two large pieces of coral,
Painted brown, and attached to his skull
With common wood screws can make a child look like a deer

In the someday what's that sound?

There was a man from Gotham
In the Batmobile he rode
Defending the defenseless
It's to him I sing this ode

With his hammers of justice
He struck down every foe
Safety for our families
It's this to him we owe

Gray and blue, gray and blue
The man from Gotham
wore the gray and blue

He fought the vilest villains
Too numerous to list
Rendering his verdicts
With Batwing covered fist

Descending from the night sky
His scalloped cape would flow
Those who broke the law
Deserved the punches he would throw

Gray and blue, gray and blue
The man from Gotham
Wore the gray and blue

But beneath the mask was just a man
Same as you or me
His true face he could never share
A secret identity
But why enter this lone crusade?
Fight a fight you just can't win
If asked the Bat would tell you:
"Someone's gotta stand up to all this sin."

Gray and blue, gray and blue
The man from Gotham
Wore the gray and blue

Gray and blue, gray and blue
The man from Gotham
Wore the gray and blue

Arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot of a fully charged icing
Anointment utensil he poots forths a quarter-ounce green rosette
*Laughs* let's try that again!
He puts forth a quarter-ounce green rosette
Near the summit of a dense but radiant muffin of his own design.

I eat a couple Milky Ways for breakfast
I take my coffee light and sweet
Show up for dinner when you tell me to
I heap the sugar high and white on everything I eat

Carry an apple in my pocket
I write reminders on my skin
Clip meaningless pictures from old magazines
I tape them to the walls
It's a bad place I'm in

And nothing you can say or do will stop me
And a thousand dead friends can't stop me

I go back to places I remember
See what's been going on without me
Stare down the strangers at the bus stop
Pretend they've been gossiping about me

White sugar by the spoonful
Canteloupes and grapes and watermelons
I force it down like it was medicine
Anybody asks you tell 'em what you want to tell 'em
But the best you've got is powerless against me
All your little schemes break when they come crashing up against me

Who's that woman on your arm,
All dressed up to do you harm?
And I'm hip to what she'll do
Give her just about a month or two



Bit off more than I can chew
And I knew—yeah, I knew what it was leading to
Some things, yeah, I can't refuse
One of them—one of them the bedroom blues



She delivers right on time
I can't resist a corny line
But take the shine right off your shoes
Carryin'—carryin' the bedroom blues



In the bar, you're getting drunk
I ain't in love; I ain't in luck
Hide the switch and shut the light
Let it all come down tonight



Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
Some face I'll never see no more
Let it all come down tonight
Keep those tears hid out of sight



Let it loose, let it all come down

Best friends, the bestest in the business
Best friends, and don't you dare forget it
Best friends but now we're gonna test it
Now we're gonna test it
Now we're gonna see who's the best

Cause I've got a headache
And I'm already full of these useless stories
So arrow come on, pick me out
Arrow, come on, pick me out
A broken arrow

Eyes attach to your mute portrait /
We spoke only through thoughts /
Together we gazed, awaited /
Hours brought thirst, and the rising sun...
