Track Name: leslie and the sorken
how do you feel about being in love?
how do you feel about being in love?
you never seem to notice where your heart belongs
you never seem to follow where your heart belongs

how do you feel about being alive?
how do you feel about living a lie?
you never seem to notice where your mind is going to
you never seem to notice anything you do
you never seem to know that one plus one is forever

leslie and the sorken
living on the weak ends
leslie and the sorken
living on the weekends
oooooOOOoooo ahh
ahhhhhhh
ah - ahhAHHhhh

aint no
no there aint no
ahhh ahh WHOOOooooo

leslie and the sorken
living on the weak ends
leslieandthesorkenleslieandthesorkenleslieandthesorken
eatin lots of cherries pies
living in a tin can
floating in a river
dont even know where they are!
Track Name: with or without us
well i dont know how we get along today
with all the dirty tricks we play
and i dont know why standing in line's okay
and who taught you to think that way?
there's so much beauty in our ugly world today
just look at all the stupid things we say
there's so much beauty in our ugly world today
i said it once and i'll say it again

its the farthest we been since the man on the moon
he's wavin at me but he's lookin bout you

every now and then the people change
first they change and then they fade away
know not who to believe in
know not who to agree with
theres so many people in our ugly world today
and they all think standing in line's okay

its the farthest we been since the man on the moon
he's winkin at me but he's thinkin bout you

ahhhhhhAHahhAHHH

the world is kinda lonely
dont you think?
what can you do?
the world will keep on going
with or without me
with or without you

there's so much violence on the evening news
violence is fashion and fashion's what we choose
so much changing and so little room
but no one sends flowers to the moon
i got a postcard in the mail today
it was for you but i lost it on the way
lost like lovers livin far apart
lost like letters to santa claus

its the farthest we been since the boy in the box
well he used to be me
and i used to be rocks

the world is kinda lonely
dont you think?
what can you do?
the world will keep on going
with or without me
with or without you

it's farthest we been since the man on the moon
well he's winkin at me but thinkin bout'chuuu
uuuuOOOOOUUUUUUU...

Track Name: black bear
saw the big black bear a comin
grab your babe and start a runnin
up the hills
down the streets
through a field
up a big pine tree

i bet you were scared
i bet you were scared

saw the big black bear approachin
not the time of year for poachin
but you told your son
go get the gun
black bear's comin
run boy run

i bet you were scared
i bet you were scared

saw the hunters raise their guns and
shot into the firey sun and
up the hills
down the streets
came a bullet with an eagle's wings

i bet you were scared
of the bullet that shot the bear
and he whispered in my ear
man, you dropped your bag

i bet you were scared
of somethin that was never there
Track Name: take me to that city
sid and nancy sittin on the risers
lookin out to the lights that disguise them
wanna sip of my merry go round
whoop whats the sound
its all the world that i ever had

upside down with hands in pockets
bitin down on crystal chocolates
5 in deeper gonna save my soul
and the panther roar is sorry he ever mewed at all

kids are swimmin in dirty waters
soon they're swimmin with sons and daughters
pull the plug in the bathroom drain
and whoops goes the toy boat
swimmin in a puddle of mud

and i seen the rainman put it in you
and i seen the rainman dance before you
and i saw a little too much and whoops goes the tin man
he's rusted up and freezin again

holy man
i need your water
cuz im savin myself for you
holy man
i need your hail mary
cuz im hatin myself for you
and all of those things under my bed were your fault

sid and nancy lookin at the children
wanna run wanna run into them
stay a while in a velvet suit
til youre growin roots in the ceiling and wooden hard floors

holy man gonna take you through the motions
holy man got some magic in the ocean
sittin pretty in an atom bomb shell
diffuse to the sounds of all the holy magic at will

je m'pelle amor a jut ti adora
je m'pelle amor a jut ti adora
mona me sol esta aqui
para vivir in el sotano
y sonrei con amores y yo

i wanna take you to the lovers in the city of blow
and i feel its about time now
i broke free a little too fast
but my lungs wont last
so take me to that city away

holy man
i need your water
cuz im savin myself for you
holy man
i need your hail mary
cuz im hatin myself for you
and all of those things under my bed were your fault

mother mary
i need your daughter
cuz im hatin myself for you
little boy
i need your father
cuz im never gonna sin on you

who's gonna save me now?
row man row and take me to that city away
take a swig of your smoke ring lips
and the clouds will drift
and take me to that city away

theres a man upon the moon
says he'll make it better
better take it easy soon
for allve those sinners

gotta go
gotta go on the run girl
gotta go
gotta find my kind girl
take a sip of your hickory lips
and the clouds will hit
and take me to that city away
Track Name: the savage
where will we go when our bodies die?
floatin in the wind on the phosphorous skies
cuz they called him a savage
they called him a villain
a menace to society
an abuser of women
well lovers fly existence is nothin

thousands of people
without any faces
founded the city
of the civilized masses
the leaders ashamed of what they had created
bowed to the knees of their fathers to thank them
for resisting the temptation to hate them

and are you still willing to follow?
a world that is green
a world that is clean
of the art and the passion
that made it obscene
and are you still full of sorrow?
sorrow that hurt
sorrow that cured
any thing and everything of history's worth

The savage was hiding
the people were running
to see such a beast with charming and cunning
he wished to free them from bondage to dreamin
while poet's were dyin for the sake of convenience
but what would a savage know about human beings?

he was rushed to an office
and handed some tablets
as controllers gave him lectures bout playin with matches
i wont you to know friend
i did not kill your mother
she died tragically in a craze ridden stupor
nothin we can do bout life jackets made of rubber

and are you still willing to follow?
a world that is green
a world that is clean
of the art and the passion
that made it obscene
and are you still fighting babies in bottles?
drunk on their wine
in assembly lines
waiting on the prisms
through which they see nothin

they were shocked and bemused
when they found the savage
hangin from a lamppost
a martyr for madness
i want you to know friend
i did not kill your brother
he fell forty stories from the empire state building

you ought to have read what they wrote in the papers
conditioning disturbed by a savage's murder
but no one could possibly continue reading
with savages disturbing the city's peacekeeping
leaders are leadin
believers are bleedin
the only ones makin changes have the least of creedence

and are you still willing to follow?
a world that is green
a world that is clean
of the art and the passion
that made it obscene
and are you still chasing babies in bottles?
drunk on their wine
in assembly lines
waiting for the prisms
through which they see nothin
behind stained glass
where nobody goes
are the portals leading to history's doors
and the protal will only open for those
praying to ford for a little bit more
and a little bit more is why we are whores
and a little bit more is why we are whores

and are you still full of sorrow
sorrow that hurt
sorrow that cured
everything and anything in history's worth
and history's words are a little off curb
history's words are a little absurd
Track Name: acid rain
people always complainin bout acid in the rain and
people always mopin liftin middle fingers
but i dont mind them
and i dont fight them

people always bitchin bout the president
and people always sayin represent
but what for? i dont mind them
and what for? i dont mind second

i took a ride on a southbound train
departed from the artic
wound up in space
i got a call from an old friend
sayin my baby got caught
in barbed wire fence

people always complainin over landfill greases
when there's women and children bein blown to pieces
but i dont mind the masses
with their pint sized telephones
and poles up their asses

i saw my baby with deep holes in his eyes
for a choker collar gonna keep him in line
there were three coffins under an american flag
but not one of them was breathin-
breathin alive

your loves missin
mines gone too
ill let him be if i can talk about you
livin large
most satisfied
might ease the tension but wont ease the ride

people laughin at the violet rays
and people always pointin at the milky way
but i cant stop them dreamin
cuz without them seein
there aint no believin

theres a hole in the ozone i just cant fix
cuz them methane gasses already been lit
i found a how do you do
in the back of my pocket
and a pistol rocket
without the heart to cock it
your hearts black?
mines dark too
i found an ashtray
and some pictures
but i cant find you
roses in your teeth
daisys my eyes
four years late can still be a surprise

come and catch your rye
and dry your runnin eyes
its a sick
backwards
and shitty world
but you wouldnt be happy
anywhere else
so why dont you smile?
why dont you smile?

its a sick
backwards
and shitty world
but you wouldnt be happy
anywhere else
so why dont you smile?
Track Name: someday
someday
we're all gonna make a change
one day
we'll make our mark on our world someway

i ask you what you think of you
you say you got your own rules and your reservations
i ask you what youre gonna do
you say you dont do nothin without a reason

someday
people will listen up
somehow
we'll find a way to love

i ask you what you think of you
you say you got your own obligations
i say you better sleep on it
you say you dont dream
for recreation

yeah, yeah, yeah...

someday
we're all gonna someone
someday
we'll see past livin alone

i say you what you think of me
you say i got my own direction
you ask me what im gonna be
i say baby dunno
but maybe ill know
someday
someday
yay.
Track Name: her name
never know a shadow's touch
or phatom limbs can hurt that much
all ya know's her name
and pap's picture frame

daddy's stressed
can you guess?
he marks the dark spots on your dress
grown up feelins change
but you guess its been the same

here in your heart lies the answers
here in your heart lies your cancer

smell of bakin cookies honey
is never here is always only
another's window pane
but you guess it's been the same

uphill in the snow you stand
no brown bags in your hand
tears melt the frozen rain
and you dont know why again

how do you avoid self-destruction
when here in your mind you think nothin of it
well id like to know
tell me little girl
i'd like to know

if sugar, spice and puppy tails
is what makes up little girls
which is scabby knees?
and is bravery one of these?
take some time to recognize
her eyes are just a green disguise
can someone take her home?
so she wont walk alone

here in your heart lies the answers
here in your heart lies your cancer
oh i'd like to know
tell me little girl
i'd like to know

how do you avoid self-destruction
when here in your mind
you think nothin of it
i'd like to know
tell me little girl
i'd like to know
Track Name: yesterday orange
goin to a place inside of my room
where i can take a walk
maybe smoke a few
under a ceiling fan moon

sleepin by a pillow
without any name
but when i find i hold her
i get the same satisfaction from you

ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
close your eyes and ill kiss you in the mornin
ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
say goodnight and ill leave you in the mornin

makin a living off the silver screen
and when i come home late shes wearin tiffanys
and the tags are still new
make a little nest outa twin sized sheets
sleep underneath a fake plastic tree
the shelter will do

ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
close your eyes and ill kiss you in the mornin
ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
say goodnight and ill leave you in the mornin

hold me now
i wanna take you to the place where the highway bebe

just trust its the only way now

good god
do you know what it feels like
to be elated?
now hold me now

fetal position in the bathtub drain
head in the faucet lookin up at rain
and the curtain is closed
waitin for the blood rush up to my head
just a few more minutes once too many times ive said
many more than once i have froze
before i let go

ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
close your eyes and ill kiss you in the mornin
ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
say goodnight and ill leave you in the mornin

took a little ride
on the new jersey trip
saw the skyline just before i dipped
into the underground
woke up trippin
and too my surprise
saw my whole entire life flash before my eyes
and laughed at what i found

ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
ill be leavin for the coast in the mornin
ooooEEEEoooEEEoo
say goodnight and ill leave you in the mornin

hold me now
i wanna take you to the place where the highway bebe
keeps goin and ill let you know

just trust its the only way now

good god

to be elated?

Track Name: because the postman
All and all
i lost my gun
i never thought id be
the only one

i did a two step
on a three by four
lost my balance
fell through a trap door

the ups man
took my package away
not til xmasis all
the postman would say

i ate a nana
feelin sorry for me
as my package
flew off on a jet plane

all has gone away
til next christmas day
i drew you a picture of me
next to an 8-legged cloud

man of chalk
lies out on the street
backyard railroad tracks
they sing to me
there's a spider
outside of my window
the crickets say
that he waits for me

i have a friend who cries when he eats
i have a brother who screams in his sleep
there's a man who's dressed in black
he holds my hand and gives my package back

all has gone away
til next christmas day
hey there anchor man

do you have now?

and you never...
healin me
