ELECTRA MADE ME BLIND

I shake the dust from this small town
I turn and follow the western wind down
I go and pack up my shiny things and go, yeah just go
I'll find a new life in old L.A.
Yeah, stupid happy with everything
I pulled myself down so easily
I know, I know, I know
I met Electra when living down, saw her spinning around and around
I never knew much about her past
I knew enough that I didn't ask
I know, I know, I know
Living isn't a simple thing, I know
No one said it's supposed to be, I know
I know
Living isn't a simple thing for me
I know words to make it easier
I know. July she lied...
July, July, July
Living isn't a simple thing, I know
No one said it's supposed to be
Living isn't a simple thing for me
I know words to make it easier.


HEROIN GIRL

I used to know a girl
She had two pierced nipples and a black tatoo
We'd drink that Mexican beer, we'd live on Mexican food
Yeah, I wish I could go back
Yes, back in time
Esther used to be the kind of girl that you would never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my disease
She'd do anything
I can hear them talking in the real world, yeah
but they don't understand that I'm happy in hell with my heroin girl
Yeah, with my heroin girl. Esther used to be the kind of lover you would never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my disease
She'd do anything
I can hear them talking in the real world, yeah
but they don't understand that I'm losing myself in a white trash hell
Lost inside a heroin girl
Yeah, with a heroin girl
They found her out in the field about a mile from home
Her face was warm from the sun but her body was cold
I heard a policeman say "Just another overdose..."
Just another overdose!
Esther used to be the kind of lover you would never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my disease
She would do anything.


YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A WHORE

(Take a walk with Buddy!)
I take your word like it was gospel,
I'm so eager to please
Yeah, I like it when you talk to me
It feels so good inside your shadow, it's the place I need to be
Yeah, you know I need to climb you like a tree
There is this place inside
where all the good things die
Sometimes I feel like whore
I hate the way I am around you
I'm so nervous and weird
Sometimes I feel like I'm breathing underwater
You treat me like I am on fire, like I'm something to eat
You make me hate what I see when I see me
Yeah, I dream of the day when I learn how to make you pay
Someday I'll teach you to beg
Someday, someday.
Yes, I live for the day, when I can hear you say
"You make me feel like a whore."
Yes, I dream of the time when I can make you mine
Maybe then I'll feel half alive, more alive, so alive
There is this place inside where all the good things die
You make me feel like a whore.


SANTA MONICA

I am still living with your ghost
Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
I don't want to be your downtime,
I don't want to be your stupid game
With my big black boots and an old suitcase,
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't want to be the bad guy,
I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to see some palm trees
Go and try to shake away this disease
We can live beside the ocean, leave the fire behind,
swim out past the breakers, watch the world die
I am still dreaming of your face,
hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't want to be your good time,
I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore
I'll walk right out into a brand new day,
insane and rising in my own weird way
I don't want to be the bad guy,
I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to feel some sunshine,
I just want to find some place to be alone
We can live beside the ocean, leave the fire behind,
swim out past the breakers, watch the world die
Yeah, watch the world die.


SUMMERLAND

Let's just drive your car,
we could drive all day
Let's just get the hell away from here
For I am sick again, just plain sick to death,
of the sound of my own voice
We could leave behind, another wasted year
Just get some cheap red wine and just go flying
We could do the things, all the things you wanted to
No one cares about us anyway
I think I lost my smile
I think you lost yours too
We have lost the power to make each other laugh
Let's just leave this place and go to Summerland
Just a name on the map, sounds like heaven to me
We could find a town, be just how we want to be
No one here really cares about us anyway
We could find a place, make it what we want to be
No one really gives a fuck about us anyway
We could live, live just how we want to live
No one here really cares about us anyway
We could be everything we want to be
We could get lost in the fall glimmer sparkle and fade
The sparkle and fade. Fall glimmer sparkle and fade
Forget about our jobs at the record store
Forget about all the losers that we know
Forget about all the memories that keep you down
Forget about them we could lose them in the sparkle and fade
We could leave them behind in the sparkle and fade
Yeah, sparkle and fade
Fall glimmer sparkle and fade.


STRAWBERRY

Never been here, never coming back
Never want to think about the things that happened today
Want to lay down on the warm ground
I think I'm going to need a little time to myself
Don't fall down now you will never get up
Don't fall down now. I ask you for a slow ride, going nowhere
You look like Satan, you ask me if I want to get high
Couple of bags down in old town
You tie your arm, ask me if I wanted to drive
Don't fall down now you will never get up
Don't fall down now. The last thing I recall I was in the air
I woke up in the street, crawling with my strawberry burns
Ten years long in a straight line
They fall like water, yes, I guess I fucked up again
Don't fall down now you will never get up
Don't fall down now


HEARTSPARK DOLLARSIGN

Time stops, when the whispers blare
The voices drop hard, but the eyes still stare
The world resolves into a death-head grin,
because I walk with pride with a black girlfriend
My mom said not to bring her around
'Cause she's black my family would put her down
I'll break the white trash ties that bind
Trade a love so pure for a hate blind
She said, she said, "Forget the fact that I don't look like you"
She said, she said,
"You're possessed with a power bigger than the pain"
Time stops, when we lie so close in my room where we share what no one knows
From the day that we start until the day that we end
I know, I know, I know now, we will never find a place where we can just fit in
Me and my black girlfriend. She said, she said,
"Fend for yourself, you're alone."
She said, she said,
"You're possessed with a power bigger than the pain."
A power bigger than the pain

THE TWISTINSIDE

We have been sleeping with the lights on just about every night,
because we are afraid what the dark might bring
I know, I know, it's just a childish fear that grows and grows while in the middle of me
I'm gonna get a new tatoo, black and stretching around my arm
Like a life that is visible and real
I know, I know, it's stupid and immature
I just want to give shape to the face that twists inside both you and me
Breathing fire doesn't look good on a resume
Neither does anything else we do
We got to get ready for the real world. Yeah yeah, we got to grow up
You know I like to die for awhile everyday in the afternoon
I like to let the arms of a bar wrap around me tight
I'm just going to sprawl in the front booth, big drink above my head
Cross-eyed and smiling as I watch the world go twisting by
I don't want to die with you, or live in the same dark room
I don't want to see your bloodshot eyes no more, no more
I just want to take this girl, all curls and big brown eyes
Man, I can't take the pain of wanting her, needing her
I know the secret of your soul, and I just don't want to know
Yeah man, we got to grow up. Yeah, we got to grow up
Na na na na
Na na na na na
I don't want to do this anymore
I don't want to
I can't take it
I give up


HER BRAND NEW SKIN

She is everywhere I am
Yeah, when I don't want her to be there
I kinda want to leave in a hurry
She's walking on the city heavy in her monster boots
I hear her calling my name
I hide behind the people that I want to be
I hear her calling my name
I can see the future when she tells me how it's going to be
She is perpetual Kathy
All shake and happy in her brand new skin
She is perpetual Kathy
She is always the same
She is everything that I'm not
Strong and happy with the rhythm inside
I do not want to be a broken record,
but I don't want to live in the shadow of a twelve-step
I hear her calling my name
Next thing you know I think I'll want to be a better man
I hear her calling my name
Yeah, I used to be a devil but they never seemed to give a damn
She is perpetual Kathy
All shake and happy in her brand new skin
She is perpetual Kathy
She is always the same.


NEHALEM

There is this rumor about
They say you're leaving Nehalem
Ever since our baby died, you've been seen with another guy
The whole damn town is talking now
They say you're leaving Nehalem
Hey don't you want me to go? Hey don't you want me? They say you're losing your mind
They say you're leaving Nehalem
You know how the bad words get around
Big noise in a hard small town
Tell me if you want me to go
Just tell me if you want me
They say you're leaving Nehalem
They say you're leaving me
Yeah, I know I need to break away
I don't give a fuck about what those people say
I hope you find everywhere you go all the good things that you need to know
They say you're losing your mind. They say you're leaving Nehalem
They say you're leaving me
They say you're leaving Nehalem
There is this rumor out
They say you're leaving Nehalem
They say you're leaving me
They say you're leaving Nehalem
I know you're leaving me
I know you're leaving Nehalem
I know you're leaving me.


QUEEN OF THE AIR [ver tradução]

There is a dream I used to have
My dream swallowed me whole
There is a bridge where I hate to go
That is where I first saw her
High on the bridge I see her red hair shining
There is a girl I never knew
She was my Aunt Virginia
They say that she, she just disappeared
They said I look just like her
High on the bridge I see her dancing, waving to me there
She smiled and raised her head then she took to the air
There is a dream I can't escape
My memories come back to me
There is a hell that I can't escape
My memories come back to me
I heard the truth about it
Pictures and headlines hidden away
I heard the truth about my real mom jumping from the bridge that day
Now I know why ever since I was 3 years old, been having the same nightmare
Now I know the truth about Virginia, why she took to the air.


PALE GREEN STARS

Amanda is in love with the sight of the moon
She's got pale green stars in her room, right above her bed
Put them on the ceiling, leave on the light
When the sun goes down that the stars might shine
Shining in the dark. Skinny little girl in her room alone
She's got hell to spare in her home, if you can call it a home
Doesn't want to be like anybody else. When no one is around she talks to herself
I can hear her in the night
Hey, hey yeah
It's hard on a girl when the blood won't come when it ought to come
It's hard on a girl when you try to walk around on the shaky ground
Hey, hey, daddy's going away
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Scared little girl watching Aladdin on TV
Amanda always cries when you yell at me
Yeah, please don't yell at me
Climb up all the stairs, close the door
Doesn't want to hear us fighting anymore
Yeah, better call it a day
Hey, hey yeah
It's so hard on a young girl
She thinks it's all her fault when it all goes wrong
It's hard on a grown man, too
To see my baby crying out the window calling out my name
Hey, hey, hey, hey, daddy's going away
Daddy's going away. Hey, hey, hey, hey, daddy's going away
Hey, hey, hey, hey, She's got pale green stars in her room.


CHEMICAL SMILE

She lost her focus yesterday
She lost her focus in the sun
She sits and stares at it for hours
She says she likes to go outside
She gets hung up on the wind
She gets lost inside the happy noise
Sometimes I don't understand her
Sometimes I don't want to understand her
She says no, no, no, no
She don't want no double life
She says, "I should know why."
She seems happier at night
Her color TV and a chemical smile
I don't want to know the reason
I don't want to know the reason why
She says Jesus owes her money
She says the angels are her friends
What in the hell does that mean? She's got the chemical smile
Yeah, she's got the chemical smile
She said... Love.


MY SEXUAL LIFE

People you know try to tell you things
Bad things that you don't want to hear about
Tell you tomorrow what you did today
Just remember it's a small town
It's a real small town
She gets tired of all the stupid boys
She can't wait until they're done
She wants a man who can take his time
She wants someone who can make her come
Yeah, can you make me come
You always say you want a simple life
You and me both know that you are a liar
You always say you want a simple life
Hearing you talk just makes me tired
Swim in the heavy water buried in the sand
Happy hearts fall from my shaky hands
I can't hide my sexual life
He always says he wants a special one,
but you watch his head go spinning around
He really wants anyone who'll give it up
He seems to forget he's in a small town
You always say you never fuck around
You say this town is just plain full of liars
Yeah, you always say you never fuck around
Hey, hearing you talk just makes me tired
Swimming in the heavy water buried in the sand
Happy hearts fall from my shaky hands
I can't hide my sexual life
No, no, no
I can't hide my sexual life
Yeah, yeah, swimming in the heavy water buried in sand
Happy hearts fall from my stupid hands
I can't hide my sexual life
My sexual life.
