Broke into her house. Saw her sittin' there
Drinking coke and whiskey in her bra and underwear
Saw him in the kitchen, hangin' up the phone
I asked him nicely please to pack his things and go

He gave her a reassuring look that said he wouldn't leave
But I asked him once again and this time pulled out my shiv
I struck him in the back and I pulled it out slow
And I watched him fall down
And as the morning sun rose
He looked at me and said:

"You missed my heart
You missed my heart
You got me good. I knew you would
But you missed my heart
You missed my heart."
Were his last words before he died

Looking out the window, up at the blue sky
Listening to her scream, listening to her cry
A feeling of relief came over my soul
I couldn't take it any longer and I lost control

I chased her up the stairs
And I pinned her to the ground
And underneath her whimpering
I could hear the sirens sound
I rattled off a list of everything I missed
Like going to the movies with her
And the way she kissed me
Driving into Wheeling and showing her off
Backyard barbecues and reunions in the park
I said I loved her skin and she started laughing
And while I clenched down on her wrist
She said "That's quite a list
But there's one thing you missed

You missed my heart, you missed my heart
That's quite a list, but what you really missed
You missed my heart, you missed my heart
That's quite a list, but what you really missed

Running through the parking lot
Running through the fields
Policemen on my back
Something hit my skull and cracked

They dragged me off to jail, set a million dollar bail
Where I tried to tie a noose, but I failed and I broke loose
Racing through the prison yard
Shot down by a tower guard
He got me in the shins
And he got me in the arms

They strapped me in the gurney
Took me to the infirmary
Where the priest read my last rites
And just before, everything went dark

I said: "He missed my heart, he missed my heart
He got me good, I knew he would
But he missed my heart, he missed my heart"
And just before, everything went dark

The most poetic dream came flowing like the sea
Laying there my lifeblood draining out of me
A childhood scene then, sky moon beams
Fishing with my friends sitting in the wild lands

Watching the Ohio river flow at night
Waiting for the bullhead catfishes to bite
Downriver from the Moundsville prison graveyards

The way the hair frames
Your face
Drink H2O, breathe O2
The way the lawn frames
Your home
Drink H2O, breathe O2

Left lane must turn left at signal
Right lane must turn right at signal
D o w n and that's the way we get down

No scissors in bed
Tired of waking up with a new haircut every morning
So it's "no scissors in bed."

Language sent to bed at signal
Mystery sent to bed at signal
Safety sent to bed at signal?
The right hand signal

Read along:
1. refurnish the murder scene
2. allow for motion discomfort
3. make a pageant decoding your body
4. aim to keep the air conditioned dishes dirty

Now it's something we own
It's burning
They're burning it
The vapor is killing us

So I gave myself to God
There was a pregnant pause before he said OK

Well, I hope that someday, buddy
We have peace in our lives
Together or apart
Alone or with our wives
And we can stop our whoring
And pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever
And never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother
This isn't all I see
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Oh no, I see a darkness
Did you know how much I love you?
Is a hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness

Current mood:



Every day I wake up we drink a lot of coffee and watch the CNN
Every day I wake up to a bowl of clover honey and let the locusts fly in
Lobsterbacks attack the town again
Wrap all my things in aluminum
Beams of darkness streak across the sky
Pink rays from the ancient satellite
Every time I look out my window same three dogs looking back at me
Every time I open my windows cranes fly in to terrorize me
The power of the Holy Ghost
The power of the Holy Ghost
Shadow of the New Praetorian
Tipping cows in fields Elysian
Saturnalia for all you have
The seven habits of the highly infected calf
Swan diving off the tongues of crippled giants
International Business Machine
Choking on bits of barley bread crumbs
Oh this burning beard I have come undone
Oh this burning beard I have come undone
It's just as I've feared, I have, I have come undone
Bugger, bugger, bugger dumb the last of academe
Okkam's razor makes the cutting clean
Shaven like a banker, lilac vegetal
Break the glass ceiling and golden parachute on down
The power of the Holy Ghost comes to town
Remove the shadow of the New Praetorian
Tipping cows in fields Elysian
Saturnalia for all you have
The seven habits of the highly infected calf
The seven habits of the highly infected calf

This one does and always has, slayed me (the bit in bold is particularly slaying)

Unsent Letter
Machine Gun Fellatio

I try to talk to you
Can't get past the weather
The friend I thought I knew
Has found somethin', somewhere better
So I'm hanging on your line
Thought we could speak together
Tell me what it is with you, you seem gone forever
I'm spendin' all my time driven round fakin' clever
With a girl who seems all right and another one who's better
I don't know if I lied when I said we're not together
But I try to talk to you, somehow you seem gone
I know I could have been tryin' not to think about it
Found it hard to live with this, and longer to live with out it
My dreams have caught me out I find my self surrounded
By the odds of our own end enough said about it
I'm spendin' all my time driven round fakin' clever
With a girl who seems all right and another one who's better
I don't know if I lied when I said we're not together
But I try to talk to you, some how you seem gone
I'm given up some thing, I guess that doesn't matter
Started other things, I guess that doesn't matter
I finally wrote your song, another unsent letter
In a pile addressed to you, care of somethin', somewhere better

I'm spendin' all my time driven round fakin' clever
With a girl who seems all right and another one who's better
I don't know if I lied when I said we're not together
But I try to talk to you, some how you seem gone
I'm spendin' all my time driven round fakin' clever
With a girl who seems all right and another one who's better
I don't know if I lied when I said that I'm together
But I try to talk to you, some how you seem gone forever
Yeah, but I try to talk to you, some how you seem gone forever
Yeah, but I try to talk to you, some how you seem gone forever
Yeah, but I try to talk to you, some how you seem gone
