My name is Jonas
My name is Jonas I'm carrying the wheel Thanks for all you've shown us But this if how we feel Come sit next to me Pour yourself some tea Just like grandma made When we couldn't find sleep Things were better then Once but never again We've all left the den Let me tell you 'bout it The choo-choo train left right on time A ticket cost only your mind The driver said "hey man, we go all the way" Of course we were willing to pay. My name is wepeel I gotta box full or your toys They're fresh out of batteries But they're still makin' noise Tell me what to do Now the tank is dry Now the wheel is flat And you know what else? Guess what I received In the mail today Words of deep concern From my little brother The building's not goin' as it's planned The foreman has injured his hand The dozer will not clear its path The driver swears he learned his math The workers are goin' Home!
No one else
My girl's got a big mouth With which she blabbers a lot She laughs at most everything Whether it's funny or not And if you see her Tell her it's over now I want a girl who will laugh for no one else When I'm away she puts her makeup on the shelf When I'm away she never leaves the house I want a girl who laughs for no one else My girl's got eyeballs In the back of her head She looks around and around You know it makes me sad to see her like that Please don't believe her she says that for anyone And if you watch her go... Watch her, watch her, watch her!
The World has turned and Left me Here
The world has turned and left me here Just where I was before you appeared And in your place an empty space Has filled the void behind my face I just made love with your sweet memory One thousand times in my head You said you loved it more than ever You said You remain, turned away Turning further every day I talked for hours to your wallet photograph And you just listened You laughed enchanted by my intellect Or maybe you didn't Do you believe what I sing now?
What's with these homies, dissin' my girl Why do they gotta front What did we ever do to these guys That made them so violent Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine Woo-hoo, and that's for all time Woo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore I don't care what they say about us anyway I don't care 'bout that Don't you ever fear, I'm always near I know that you need help Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit You need a guardian Bang! Bang a knock on the door another big bang and you're down on the floor oh no! What do I do? Don't look now but I lost my shoe I can't run and I can't kick What's a matter babe are you feelin' sick? What's a matter, what's a matter, what's a matter you? What's a matter babe, are you feelin' blue? oh-oh!
Undone - the Sweater song
I'm me Me be Goddamn I am I can Sing and Here me Know me If you want to destroy my sweater Hold this thread as I walk away Watch me unravel I'll soon be naked Lying on the floor, I've come undone Oh no It go It gone Bye-Bye Who I I think I sink and I die I don't want to destroy your tank-top Let's be friends and just walk away Hate you see you lyin' there in your Superman skivvies Lying on the floor, I've come undone
Surf Wax America
The sea is foamin' like a bottle of beer The wave is comin' but I ain't got no fear I'm waxin' down so that I'll go real fast I'm waxin' down because it's really a blast I'm goin' surfin cuz I don't like your face I'm bailin' out because I hate the race of Ratts that run Round and Round in the maze I'm goin' surfin', I'm goin' surfin'! You take your car to work I'll take my board And when you run out of fuel I'm still afloat My buddies and their honies all come along They seem invincible as they surf along The sea is rollin' like a thousand pound keg We're goin' surfin', we're goin' surfin! All along the undertow is strengthening its hold I never thought it'd come to this Now I can never go home
Say it ain't so
Somebody's Heine' is crowdin' my icebox Somebody's cold one is givin' me chills Guess I'll just close my eyes Flip on the tele' Wrestle with Jimmy Something is bubbling Behind my back The bottle is ready to blow Say it ain't so Your drug is a heartbreaker Say it ain't so My love is a lifetaker I can't confront you I never could do That which might hurt you So try and be cool When I say This way is a waterslide away from me that takes you further every day So be cool Dear Daddy, I write you in spite of years of silence. You've cleaned up, found Jesus, things are good or so I hear. This bottle of Steven's awakens ancient feelings. Like father, stepfather, the son is drowning in the flood.
In the Garage
I've got the Dungeon Master's Guide I've got a 12-sided die I've got Kitty Pryde and Nightcrawler too Waiting there for me Yes I do, I do I've got posters on the wall My favorite rock group Kiss I've got Ace Frehley I've got Peter Criss Waiting there for me Yes I do,I do In the garage I feel safe No one cares about my ways In the garage Where I belong No one hears me sing this song In the garage I've got an electric guitar I play my stupid songs I write these stupid words and I love every one Waiting there for me Yes I do, I do
Let's go away for a while You and I To a strange and distant land Where they speak no word of truth But we don't understand anyway Holiday far away to stay on a Holiday Far away Let's go today In a Heartbeat! Don't bother to pack your bags Or your map We won't need them where we're goin' We're goin' where the wind is blowin' Not knowin' where we're gonna stay We will write a postcard To our friends and family In free verse On the road with Kerouac Sheltered in his Bivouac On this road we'll never die... Let's go away!
Only in dreams
You can't resist her She's in your bones She is your marrow And your ride home You can't avoid her She's in the air In between molecules Of Oxygen and carbon dioxide Only in dreams We see what it means Reach out our hands Hold on to hers But when we wake It's all been erased And so it seems Only in dreams You walk up to her Ask her to dance She says "hey, baby I just might take the chance" You say "It's a good thing That you float in the air That way there's no way I will crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces." Only in dreams.
