the devil soon was a vagabond and dressed for the prom [06 May 2006|11:25pm]
We're almost out of batteries
So if you lose the feed, you'll know why
We make music, but we're not machines
When we disappear, you'll know why

                   The signal is corrupted
                   The songs are uninspired
Where's the fucking chorus?

"I get what I want this time baby."
Foul temptress I want it too
This hell, this doom baby
I find I cannot part with this shadow of a thought
Desire in my lips is precious
Like air or blood or jewels that shine in the sky baby
Or sweat that runs down your spine like a river
I find I cannot part with this shadow of a thought
Desire in my lips is precious
                              precious to me
 
"i get what i want this time"
I find I cannot part with this shadow of a thought
                                               Desire in my lips is precious


DOES THE LEFT HAND
know what the right hand is doing?
YOU'RE A FOOL MAN
Ever get sick of not knowing?
YOU'RE A FOOL MAN
Ever get sick of not knowing?
DOES THE LEFT HAND
know what the right hand is doing?
YOU'RE A FOOL MAN
ever get sick of not knowing?
YOU'RE A FOOL MAN

"Look at me, when I talk to you."
But my eyes can't bear the sight
A white so brilliant it pains my heart but

I can make you disappear
I can make you disappear
I can make you disappear
if I try
If I try hard enough
I can make myself believe

Maybe I can't convince you
Oh no
But I can convince me, yeah
And

I can make you disappear
I can make you disappear
I can make you disappear
if I try
If I try hard enough
I can make myself believe
in almost
anything


If I try hard enough
I can make myself believe in almost anything
I can make you disappear
There's a snake in the carriage that is lacking no courage baby don't play with that rattle baby does what she knows how to do feel that nectar, feel good hey little baby venom veins, you've got venom in your veins makes you grow fast, makes you grow strong hey little baby rubber legs,


                                       you've got nothing to stand on
they call this THE BADLANDS baby
But it used to be bayou
The shore of an inland sea
But I can hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming

And there's a hole in the world
And the light is leaking out
Spilling like water
And I can hear you coming
What foul beast stalks this way
The night is dim but I catch the scent of your arrogance
As you rear your head I can see your eyes
Gleaming catching light from the moon like a pair of knives to cut me down
But I can hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming
                      hear you coming

What new delivery is this
I saw you rise and creep across the sky and all night as I fled you came behind eating all the stars
Dig to find
Why the light is left
Rocks and stones, skulls and bones
Whispered stories, tales of glory and a tragic fall from grace
And we're still falling just like the dinosaurs
I've been dreaming, late at night
In darkness, in THE LAND OF LOST MONSTERS
And my pride is always a step behind me
So I run

Oh baby, give hooks to me
Yea, something big and juicy
That I can sink my teeth into
And I will treat you nice
Oh
Filthy beast
Can't touch my integrity

I've been screaming, late at night
In darkness, in the land of lost monsters
Where we play music we're supposed to
For the dinosaurs

Filthy beast
Sing lies to me


Oh baby, give hooks to me
Yea, something big and juicy
That I can sink my teeth into
And I will treat you nice
Oh
The signal is corrupting
The songs are uninspired
Where's the fucking chorus?
HERE IT IS:
But you can't fuck with my integrity

Filthy beast
Sing lies to me

Filthy beast
Sing lies to me

Filthy beast
Sing lies to me

Oh

Ever since I was young your word is the word that always won.
Worry and wake the ones you love.
A phone call I'd rather not receive.
Please use my body while I sleep.
My lungs are fresh and yours to keep,
Kept clean and they will let you breathe.

Is this the way a toy feels when its batteries run dry?
I am the watch you always wear but you forget to wind.

Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these,
so I sat alone and waited out the night.
The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed.
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around.
I'm not writing my goodbyes.

I submit no excuse.
If this is what I have to do I owe you every day I wake.
If I could I would shrink myself and sink through your skin to your blood cells
and remove whatever makes you hurt but I am too weak to be your cure.

Is this the way a toy feels when its batteries run dry?
I am the watch you always wear but you forget to wind.

Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these,
so I sat alone and waited out the night.
The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed.
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around.
I'm not writing my goodbyes.

I'm not letting you check out.
You will beat this starting now and you will always be around.
I'm there to monitor your breathing
I will watch you while you're sleeping.
I will keep you safe and sound
.
Does anybody remember back when you were very young.
Did you ever think that you would be this blessed?

Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these,
so I sat alone and waited out the night.
The best part of what has happened was the part I must have missed.
So I'm asking you to shine it on and stick around.
I'm not writing my goodbyes.



michael needs friends, phone calls and smiles... more so now then before
