Virtue and Vice Lyrics

Think of me
I'll think of you
We better think
This whole thing through
Sometimes I'm so clumsy

You talk to me
I'll talk to you
You cut the fat
And we'll both chew
You know we're both hungry

I feel so alive today
That's all that I wanted to say
I hope that it stays this way
If not I will be okay

Say another prayer
Save another life
Kiss me on my head
And tell me
Everything's alright
'Cause I can say it one
Or I can shout it twice
All there really is
Is virtue and vice
Virtue and vice

Cry to me
I'll cry to you
Sometimes the pain will only do
You know I'm not kidding

You laugh with me
I'll laugh with you
At all the stupid things we do
Tomorrow we'll be happy

Another Roadside Tragedy Lyrics

Kiss me goodnight, shake me awake.
The closer I get to you the more I can't wait.
Roll on down hill, smell my brakes
No time for coffee, just splash water on my face, oh yeah

Kick my tires, count out of state plates
Roll down my window, don't the wind feel great?
Sunrise my friend, sunset again
This song I keep humming while my four wheels' spinning

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Wind it down and back it up
I might get there sooner than I thought
No warranty on the wear and tear
It don't matter, just as long as I get there

Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy
Another road, another road, another roadside tragedy

Cosmic Friend Lyrics

When the wind whispers to me
From somewhere behind the trees
And it tells me crazy things
Like my head is full of bees
And at night they hum for me.

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
Its not everlasting
Its bound to turn around
Need a little sweetness
A little reason for your rhyme
I got something for you
A little sugar for your mind
Hear the bells ringing
Send it down the line
Thank you for the sharing (hey no problem, man)
I'll get you back next time (cool)

Chorus:
My friend, the cosmos is calling
Sayin' we all should be shining

Don't you be a stranger
We like you hanging around
Be thankful of the laughter
Praise for the sound
When you're feeling lonely
You know just what to do
Put on track eleven
Get on with the groove

Chorus

Now we've reached the ending
I'm sad this song is gone
We can start at the beginning
And we can all sing along

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
Its not everlasting
Its bound to turn around

Chorus

Descending Lyrics

Have mercy baby
I'm descending again
Open your eyes
This time it's sink or it's swim
No sermons on ascending
No verdict on deceit
No selfish memorandum
No confusion for me

Curses
Curses and clues
A feast for fools
Have mercy baby
And hand me downs
It was just a few years ago
You'd hand me ups and map
Right out of town
But I would let it slide
Like mercury
Silver and quick
Poisonous and deadly
So deadly

Title Song Lyrics

You know I never wanted it to be like this
I've been lost in sandstorms
Left naked by your kiss
In the face of God
Of God and his poison leaves
The way it feels right now oh yeah
I really want to believe

So then you look on me with sad black eyes
Well I heard it coming yeah
And you know I lost my smile
In a January that never ends
The gold affections of my past
Are now just rusted tin, yeah

Well I really want to see you again
I miss my lover, as my best friend
Yeah baby I , I want you right by my side
With you baby, I'd spend all my time

They said they'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
Yes, with a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
If I could be your title song

So every now and then I get sad, yes it's true
Well you've known me long enough now baby yeah, it's nothing new
Like, like, when I'm feeling bad
I feel underwater I feel blue
And you know the only thing I ask from you baby
Well, is can I swim to you, yeah

Well I really want to begin this again
Cause I miss you as my lover, I miss my best friend
Oh baby I, I just want you right by my side
Yeah cause with you girl I would spend all my time

Said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
And a girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could be that way
Then I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Yeah

Well baby, I, yes I want to begin this again
Well cause I miss my lover, and yes I miss my best friend
Oh baby you know I want you right by my side
Down with you baby, I'll spend all my time

We said we'd write a book someday
About a boy who'd always strayed
A girl who took the fog away
Man, if it could only be that way
I would come without delay
With a smile on my face
And I would not be lost for long
And you could be my title song
Well I won't be lost for long
If you could be my title song
My title song

Street Fighting Man Lyrics

Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
But what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy london town
There's just no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! think the time is right for a palace revolution
But where I live the game to play is compromise solution
Well, then what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy london town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No

Hey! said my name is called disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail at all his servants
Well, what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy london town
There's no place for a street fighting man
No

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

You Don't Miss Your Water Lyrics

In the beginning you really loved me
But I was blind and I could not see
But when you left me, oh, how I cried
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry

I was a playboy, I could not be true
I couldn't believe I really loved you
But when you left me, oh, how I cried
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry

In the beginning you really loved me
But I was blind and I could not see
But when you left me, oh, how I cried
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry
You don't miss your water till your well runs dry

Girl From A Pawnshop Lyrics

With pawnshop eyes and a second hand frown
She sat silent at the table
Her boots were brown, well should she leave town
To play the role of lover expatriate
A nod to the waiter, always her flirty behavior
You know she always gets one on the house
She pulls out a letter
From a bag under her sweater
And before she reads she straightens her blouse

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

And out of respect, well really must confess
I never lost your number
I never lost your address
And if we remain friends at best
Sometime later no, no not yet
We'll smile and remember it like this

She put back the letter
One tear falls like a feather
And disappears on the bar room floor
The gratuity included
You know the letter concluded
P.S. with all my love

There's a passion in being alone
A grace in a loveless time
There's no new cross, there's no new sign
Only the sun and the changing tide

I said P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love
P.S. all my love

Fearless Lyrics

You say the hill's too steep to climb
Climbing
You say you'd like to see me try
Climbing

You pick the place and I’ll choose the time
And I’ll climb
The hill in my own way
Just wait a while for the right day
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds
I look down, hearing the sound of the things you’ve said today

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
Smiling
Merciless the magistrate turns ’round
Frowning

And who's the fool who wears the crown?
No doubt
In your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
You look down, hear the sound of the faces in the crowd

Good Friday Lyrics

We've been avoiding this for so long
Luxury is temporary then it's gone
I thought that we would happen
I guess I'm wrong
We'll say "hi" on the street then
We'll move along
I know this will be awkward
But not for long
Cause soon you'll have a new boy
to sing you songs

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday
On Good Friday

I'm sorry I couldn't do this yesterday
And tomorrow I am busy
And what it is I can't say
And Saturday is no good
We got a show
So it has to be Good Friday
Then it's so long

I will not forgive you
Nor will I accept the blame
I will see you on Good Friday
On Good Friday

You, you come and go when you please
I know unfulfilled needs
I know you do too
But I, you know I didn't see things through
I didn't pay attention to you
But honey I tried

Greasy Grass River Lyrics

Now I'm swimming in the greasy grass river
On my way to the black pearl sea
Yeah I'm floating down the greasy grass river
Come on child, come with me
Life is so easy on greasy grass river
Just take my hand and we can pretend to be free
You wanna be
Free
Come on with me

So take me down the greasy grass river
And wash my hair where the water's clean
Said lay me down by the greasy grass river
And unfold my mystery
The greasy grass river has water that whispers
Lets listen closely while she says she wants to be free
You wanna be
Free
You know what I mean

Said I'm out of my pocket and I'm out my mind

Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine Lyrics

You say you love me
And you're thinkin' of me
But you know you could be wrong
You say you told me
That you wanna hold me
But you know you're not that strong
I just can't do what I done before
I just can't beg you any more
I'm gonna let you pass
And I'll go last
Then time will tell just who fell
And who's been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

You say you disturb me
And you don't deserve me
But you know sometimes you lie
You say you're shakin'
And you're always achin'
But you know how hard you try
Sometimes it gets so hard to care
It can't be this way ev'rywhere
And I'm gonna let you pass
Yes, and I'll go last
Then time will tell just who fell
And who's been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

The judge, he holds a grudge
He's gonna call on you
But he's badly built
And he walks on stilts
Watch out he don't fall on you

You say you're sorry
For tellin' stories
That you know I believe are true
You say ya got some
Other kinda lover
And yes, I believe you do
You say my kisses are not like his
But this time I'm not gonna tell you why that is
I'm just gonna let you pass
Yes, and I'll go last
Then time will tell who fell
And who's been left behind
When you go your way and I go mine

Ballad In Urgency Lyrics

Here with me
And this price you pay
Just a wishful dream could be blown away
Ask yourself for better or worse
Because what's the use if it's just good luck

A black cat has crossed my path
Tell me what's good luck about that

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Excuse me please
For my definition
But deeper still are my convictions
Urgently I wait to hear an answer
While I misconduct
A sad lost anthem
An anthem like you have never heard
Have you heard something so absurd

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Beware Of Darkness Lyrics

Watch out now, take care
Beware of falling swingers
Dropping all around you
The pain that often mingles
In your fingertips
Beware of darkness

Watch out now, take care
Beware of the thoughts that linger
Winding up inside your head
The hopelessness around you
In the dead of night

Beware of sadness
It can hit you
It can hurt you
Make you sore and what is more
That is not what you are here for

Watch out now, take care
Beware of soft shoe shufflers
Dancing down the sidewalks
As each unconscious sufferer
Wanders aimlessly
Beware of maya

Watch out now, take care
Beware of greedy leaders
They take you where you should not go
While weeping atlas cedars
They just want to grow, grow and grow
Beware of darkness (beware of darkness)

High Head Blues Lyrics

Sometimes I have a ghetto in my mind
Other times sunshine high head fine
In between I get cold, old mean
Intertwined with country pride open and kind
This draws a line

Sorry to coin a phrase
On either side is wisdom and rage
So keeping track of time
Racing with my age
Sleeping with the snakes
Forget that you showed up late
It ain't worth it baby

Chorus:
A charmed life it is
At least they tell you so
I got a good idea
It ain't like they say is so
And if it is then let me go
Let me go

Any day there might be hell to pay
But in other ways
It makes it seem ok
I'll tell you what I mean
It's not a plot nor a scheme
It's just peace in my mind
Again can I use the word kind
I ain't sorry about it baby

Chorus

Space Captain Lyrics

Once while travelling across the sky
This lovely planet caught my eye
And being curious, I flew close by
And now I'm caught here 'til I die

Until we die, until we die
We're just learning to live together
Learning to live together
Learning to live together

I lost my memory of where I've been
We all forgot we could fly
We all changed into peaceful men
And we'll return now to the sky

Chorus

We've got to get it together
It's getting better and better
we've go to get it together
It's getting better and better

Chorus

Bring On, Bring On Lyrics

What could I do different?
It makes one sober to think
In an age of illusion
It's hard to know when to stop
How could I live indifferent
Believing in time and fate
As long as I have a witness
My name is not at stake

Bring on this flowering
Bring on, Bring on
Bring on this flowering
Bring on thou words cannot describe

Would you stop to listen
The words cannot describe
It's hard waiting for heaven
May your song keep you alive

And on the day I said goodbye
My drowning tear catches a light
Like the gift of sight
The baby's eye, darkness into light
I can rest my soul and
walk in the light
I'm positively spring time
The gift of sight
The baby's eye
Darkness into light

How Much For Your Wings? Lyrics

How much for your wings?
How much for your wings?
Well it comes and it goes
How much for your wings?
And it's high and low
How much for your wings?
I can name a price
How much for your wings?
Many forget their pride

chorus

If I were you and and you were me
We'd know
And could it be what you perceive
Is wrong?
And what I mean what wrong could be
I don't know
I'm not naïve but I believe
So I may grow

How much for your wings?
The soul you kiss good-bye
How much for your wings?
Watch the stars collide

How does it feel
When you're the only one?

No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Twice as Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)
