■Are you a male or female: Rapunzel:

Ha, open wide
Oh so good I’ll eat you
Take me for a ride
In your sweet delicious,
Perfect, little mouth
There upon I linger
You will have no doubt
That I do my best for you
I do, ooh..

Let’s start to get it going
Lost myself just thinking
‘Bout the two of us
From each other drinking
Begin with the lips
Fingertip and kissing
Turn me inside out
That I do my best for you

Up and down we go
From the top you push me
This is such a thrill
lost in love and dancing
Shake your tambourine
You blow my head open
Of one thing I’m sure
That I do my best for you
I do…

For you I would crawl
Through the darkest dungeon
Climb a castle wall
If you’re my Rapunzel
You let your hair down
Right in through the window
Good they locked the door
‘Cause I do my best for you

I think the world of you
All of my heart I do
Blood through my veins for you
You alone have all of me
I give my world to you
And to you I will be true

Too good to be real
The smell of something cooking
My soul up to steal
Of my food we’re filling
What you’ve been given me
For it there’s no measure
Of one thing I know
Is I give my best for you

I think the world of you
With all of my heart I do
This blood through my veins for you
You alone have all of me
From you my strength is so full
To carry your burdens, too
I give my word to you

Hips Locked up so tight
You drive me crazy
Crazy is alright
With you looking at me
You make me feel high
Every single thing you do to me
Is like I’m drunk
I do my best for you I do

Given me, given me the shivers

■Describe yourself: Best of what’s around


Hey my friend
It seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your time with me
Would you say you’re feeling low and so
A good idea would be to get it off your mind

See you and me
Have a better time than most can dream
Have it better than the best
So we can pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We’ll make the best of what’s around

Turns out not where but who you’re with
That really matters
And hurts not much when you’re around
And if you hold on tight
To what you think is your thing
You may find you’re missing all the rest

Well she ran up into the light surprised
Her arms are open
Her mind’s eye is

Seeing things from a
Better side than most can dream
On a clearer road I feel
Oh you could say she’s safe
Whatever tears at her
Whatever holds her down
And if nothing can be done
She’ll make the best of what’s around

Turns out not where but what you think
That really matters
We’ll make the best of what’s around

■How do you feel: Shake me like a monkey


The thing I like about you
The way you do what you do
The thing i like about you
God and the devil alone could not have made you up

Two must have worked as one together
So good just want to eat you up
Let me like the real thing
Lick your sticky fingers boy and sing for your dinner sing

Come on pretty babe make me lose my mind
Everybody get together gonna make love shine

Do you know what it is to feel the light of love inside you?
And all the darkness falls away
If you feel the way I feel then believe we have the answer
I’ve been searching for tonight
Love me baby love me baby shake me like a monkey baby
forever i’m yours

I can’t stop thinking about you
yeah yeah yeah
why would i want to
I like coffee with toast and jelly
But i’d rather be licking from your back to your belly
I think I’m going to

Do you know what it is to feel the light of love inside you?
And all the darkness falls away
If you feel the way I feel then believe we have the answer
I’ve been searching for tonight
Love me baby love me baby shake me like a monkey
forever i’m yours

Cigarettes and coffee broken heart and being lonely little girls
And ponies are the things that go together
Yes and no you have to choose Romeo and Juliet to hang their noose
You and me would go good together

Kiss Kiss make a wish
Hope that it comes true
But I ain’t waiting for the world to change
Gonna change the world for you

Come on pretty baby make you lose your mind
Everybody get together gonna make love shine

Do you know what it is to feel the light of love inside you?
And all the darkness falls away
If you feel the way I feel then believe we have the answer
I’ve been searching for tonight
Love me baby love me baby shake me like a monkey
forever i’m yours

Come on everybody make me lose my mind
Everybody get together gonna make love shine

■Describe where you currently live: Lying In The Hands Of God

Maybe I’ll be your solider
Gladly I’ll do your bidding
For just a taste of what you’re holding
For just a taste you could owe me

Save your sermons
For someone that’s afraid to love
I’ll be right here
Lying in the hands of god

Here it comes diving into to me
Now the floor is the ceiling
If you never flew why would you?
Cut the wings off a butterfly… fly

Save your sermons
For someone that’s afraid to
Love you knew what I feel
Then you couldn’t be so sure
I’ll be right here
Lying in the hands of god.

If you feel the angels in your head
Tears drop
Of Joy runs down your face
You will rise.

Filling me up now drain me
Skin begins to grow back slowly
Faster into until I’m chocking
Rinse for my mother.

Save your sermons
For someone that’s afraid to
Love you knew what I feel
Then you couldn’t be so sure
I’ll be right here
Lying in the hands of god.

I am in love with my nothing less
Tear drops of joy run off my face
I will rise…
For someone that’s afraid to
Love you knew what I feel
Then you couldn’t be so sure
I’ll be right here
Lying in the hands of god.

Now the floor is the celing
If you never flew why would you?
Why would you?

■If you could go anywhere, where would you go: The Dreaming Tree


Standing here
The old man said to me,
“Long before these crowded streets
Here stood my dreaming tree.”
Below it he would sit
For hours at a time
Now progress takes away
What forever took to find
And now he’s falling hard
He feels the falling dark
How he longs to be
Beneath his dreaming tree

Conquered fear to climb
A moment froze in time
When the girl who first he kissed
Promised him she’d be his
Remembered mother’s words
There beneath the tree
“No matter what the world
You’ll always be my baby.”
“Mommy come quick,
The dreaming tree has died.”
The air is growing thick
A fear he cannot hide
The dreaming tree has died

Oh, have you no pity?
This thing I do
I do not deny it
All through this smile
As crooked as danger
I do not deny
I know in my mind
I would leave you now
If I had the strength to
I would leave you up
To your own devices
Will you not talk?
Can you take pity?
I don’t ask much
But won’t you speak, please?

From the start
She knew she had it made
Easy up ’til then
For sure she’d make the grade
Adorers came in hordes
To lay down in her wake
Gave it all she had
But treasures slowly fade
Now she’s falling hard
Feels the fall of dark
How did this fall apart?
She drinks to fill it up
A smile of sweetest flowers
Wilted so and soured
Black tears stain the cheeks
That once were so admired
She thinks when she was small
There on her father’s knee
How he had promised her,
“You’ll always be my baby.”
“Daddy come quick,
The dreaming tree has died
I can’t find my way home
There is no place to hide
The dreaming tree has died.”

Oh, if I had the strength to
I would leave you up
To your own devices
Will you not talk?
Can you take pity?
I don’t ask much
But won’t you speak, please?

■Your best friend is: Raven

What you got what you got in your hand? – a father said to son
I got the whole world here Daddy between my fingers and my thumb
Well you take care of it please – it’s the only one
Well it would take me a lifetime old man to undo what you’ve done
To undo what you’ve done

Oh come on now boy think what would Jesus do?
He shake his head like an angry mother – spoke the boy and say I did what I could do
But you take care of it please – it’s the only one you got
And it’d take ten lifetimes boy to undo what I’ve done

Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood alone thinking

One hand is bleeding and the other hand holds a gun
While everything is open everything is shut down, down, down
Begin to ending is really just a go round and round and round
As I stand here – the ground beneath is nothing more than one point of view

What you got what you got in your hand? Your secret’s safe with me
Well I found the truth friend let me whisper in your ear
Take good care of it please – it’s the only one there is
Can I twist it please can I give it just a little twist

Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood there twisting

One hand is bleeding and the other hand holds a gun
Everything is open now everything is shut down, down, down
No one is holding even if you even if your sure
You never know it all the ground beneath is nothing more than my point of view

Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood there twisting

One hand is open and the other hand holds the gun
Everything is open now is everything coming down, down, down
No one is hoping even if you even if you know
You never know it all – nothing more than, nothing more than my point of view

Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
The man stood there twisting

■If your life was a TV show, what would it be called: Don’t drink the water


Don’t drink the water here…

Come out, come out, no use in hiding.
Come now, come now, can you not see
There’s no place here, what were you expecting?
No room for both, just room for me.

So you will lay your arms down,
Yes, I will call this home.

Away, away, you have been banished.
Your land is gone, and given to me.

And here I will spread my wings.
Yes, I will call this home.

What’s this you say, you feel a right to remain?
Then stay and I will bury you.

What’s that you say, your father’s spirit still lives in this place?
Well, I will silence you.

Here’s the hitch, your horse is leaving.
Don’t miss your boat, it’s leaving now.

And as you go I will spread my wings.
Yes, I will call this home.
I have no time to justify to you,
Fool, you’re blind, move aside for me.

All I can say to you my new neighbor,
You must move on or I will bury you.

Now as I rest my feet by this fire
Those hands once warmed here, but I have retired them.
I can breathe my own air and I can sleep more soundly
Upon these poor souls,
I’ll build Heaven and call it home.
Cause you’re all dead now.

I live with my justice
And I live with my greedy need
I live with no mercy
And I live with my frenzied feeding
I live with my hatred
And I live with my jealousy
I live with the notion that I don’t need anyone but me

Don’t Drink the Water
Don’t Drink the Water
Blood in the water
Don’t Drink the Water

■What is life to you: Digging a ditch

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Unplug the TV, turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I’m digging a ditch where madness gives a bit
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch for when I’m old
Digging this ditch my story’s told

Where all these troubles
That weigh down on me will rise
Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Where all these questions
Spinnin’ around my head
Will die, will die, will die…

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Unplug the TV, turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I’m digging a ditch where madness gives a bit
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch when I am through
Digging this ditch I’ll dig in for you
Where all these worries
Weigh it down on me will rise
Where all these habits
Pull heavy at my heart
will die

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Not what you should be or what you’ve become
Just get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I’m digging a ditch where madness gives a bit
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Where all these dissapointments, grow angry out of me
Will rise…
Will die…
Will die…
Will die…

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Unplug the TV
And turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

■Your last relationship: Let you down

I let you down
Let me pick you up
I let you down
Let me climb up you to the top
So I can see the view from up there
Tangled in your hair
I let you down
I have no lid upon my head
But if I did
You could look inside and see what’s on my mind
You could look inside and see what’s on my mind
I let you down, oh, forgive me
You give me love
Let me walk with you, maybe I could say
Maybe talk with you, open up
And let me through
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
I have no lid upon my head
But if I did
You could look inside and see what’s on my mind
You could look inside and see what’s on my mind

I let you down
How could I be such a fool like me
I let you down
Tail between my legs
I’m a puppy for your love
I’m a puppy for your love
I have no lid upon my head
But if I did
You could look inside and see what’s on my mind, oh it’s you
I let you down
I’m a puppy for your love
I’m a puppy for your love
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
I let you down

■Your fear: Say Goodbye

So here we are tonight
You and me together

And the storm outside
And the fire’s bright
Oh, and in your eyes
I see what’s on my mind
You’ve got me wild
Turned around inside

Oh and then desire, see
Is creeping up heavy
Oh inside here
And do you feel
The same way as I do now
Let’s make this an evening
Lovers for a night, lovers for tonight

Why n’ stay here with me, love, tonight
Just for an evening
And when we will make it
Our passionate pictures
You and me twist up as secret creatures
And we’ll stay here
Tomorrow go back to being friends
Yeah, Oh, go back to being friends

But tonight let’s be lovers,
We kiss and sweat
We’ll turn this better thing to the best
Of all it can offer
Oh, this rogue kiss
Tangled tongues and lips
See me this way
I’m turning and turning for you
Ah girl, ah just tonight run away
Yeah, with me for an evening
Ah, just wait and see
But then tomorrow go back to your man
I’m back to my world
And we’re back to being friends
Oh wait and see me
Ah tonight let’s do this thing
All we are is wasting hours
’til the sun comes
It’s all ours
On our way here, yeah cause
tomorrow go back to being friends

Yeah, oh go back to being friends
Tonight let’s be lovers, oh please
Tonight let’s be lovers, say you will
Tonight let’s be lovers, oh yeah
Tonight let’s be lovers

And hear me call,
Oh soft-spoken whispering now
Well, a thing or two I have to say here
Tonight let’s go all the way then
Oh lover I can see you
Just for an evening
Oh, let’s strip down
Trip out at this
One evening’s hour starts with a kiss
And away yeah, then

And tomorrow back to being friends yeah
And now lover, love you, yeah,
Just for tonight, one night, love you,
And tomorrow say goodbye
Tomorrow say goodbye… (Repeat 2x)

■What is the best advice you have to give: Pay for what you get

Work ourselves, fingers to the bone
Suck the marrow, drain my soul
Pay your dues, and your debts
Pay your respects, everybody tells you
You pay for what you get
You pay for what you get

Everybody asks me how she’s doin’
Has she really lost her mind?
I said, I couldn’t tell you
I’ve lost mine

Words, words, words, have you heard
A bird in hand is much better than,
Any number free to wander
Fly away… Stay
You pay for what you get
You pay for what you get

Everybody asks me how she’s doing
Is she really all she says…
Everybody asks me how she’s doing
Since she went away
I said I couldn’t tell you
I’m OK I’m OK (I’m OK)

Surprise, surprise
You pay for what you get
You pay for what you get

Everybody asks me how she’s doing
Has she really lost her…
Everybody asks me how she’s doing
Since she went away
I said I couldn’t tell you
I’m OK I’m OK I’m OK (How are you?)

Pay for what you get
Pay for what you get…oh…
Pay for what you get
Pay for what you get oh…
Oh…

■Thought for the day: Funny the way it is

Lying in the park on a beautiful day,
Sunshine in the grass, and the children play.
Siren’s passing, fire engine red,
Someone’s house is burning down on a day like this?

The evening comes and we’re hanging out,
On the front step, and a car rolls by with the windows rolled down,
And that war song is playing, “why can’t we be friends?”
Someone is screaming and crying in the apartment upstairs

Funny the way it is, if you think about it
Somebody’s going hungry and someone else is eating out
Funny the way it is, Am I right or wrong
Somebody’s heart is broken and it becomes your favorite song

The way your mouth feels in your lovers kiss
Like a pretty bird on a breeze or water to a fish
A bomb blast brings a building crashing to the floor
You can hear the laughter, while the children play “war”

Funny the way it is, if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school, another’s dropping out
Funny the way it is, not right or wrong
On a soldier’s last breath his baby’s being born

Standing on a bridge, watch the water passing under me
It must’ve been much harder when there was no bridge, just water
Now the world is small. Remember how it used to be,
With mountains and oceans and winters and rivers and stars?

Watch the sky, the jet planes, so far out of my reach
Is there someone up there looking down on me?
Boy chase a bird, so close but every time
He’ll never catch her, but he can’t stop trying

Funny the way it is, if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school, another’s dropping out
Funny the way it is, not right or wrong
On a soldier’s last breath his baby’s being born
Funny the way it is, nor right or wrong
Somebody’s broken heart becomes your favorite song
Funny the way it is, if you think about it
A kid walks 10 miles to school, another’s dropping out.

Standing on a bridge, watch the water passing under me
It must’ve been much harder when there was no bridge, just water
Now the world is small. Remember how it used to be,
With mountains and oceans and winters and rivers and stars?

■How I would like to die: Lover lay down

Spring sweet rhythm dance in my head
Slip into my lover’s hands
Kiss me oh won’t you kiss me now
And sleep I would inside your mouth

Don’t be us too shy
For knowing it’s no big surprise
That I will wait for you
I will wait for no one but you

Oh please lover lay down
Spend this time with me
Together share this smile
Lover lay down
Spend this time with me

Walk with me, walk with you
Hold my hands, your hands
So much we have dreamed
And we were so much younger
Hard to explain that we are stronger

A million reasons life to deny
Let’s toss them away
See you and me we
Lay down look see
She and he
By my lover’s side
Together share this smile
Each other’s tears to cry
Together share this smile
Lover lay down

Oh please
Oh please lover lay down
Oh please lover lay down
And you weep
Lover lay down
Cause it’s over
Lover lay down
Say love, say love, say love, say love, say love
Could I love you
Could you love me (x4)

All the same (2x)
‘Til we dance away (4x)
Chasing me all around
Leading me all around in circles
Chasing me all around
Leading me all around in circles
Say…

■My soul’s present condition: Stay(Wasting Time):


While we were walking
Just the other day
And it was so hot outside
you could fry an egg
Remember you were talking
And I watched as sweat ran down your face
Reached up and I caught it at your chin
Licked my fingertips

We were, we were just wasting time
Let the hours roll by
Doing nothing for the fun
A little taste of the good life
Whether right or wrong
Makes us want to stay, stay, stay, stay, stay for a while.

Then later on the sun began to fade
Then well the clouds rolled over head
And it began to rain
Oh, we were dancing mouths open
we were Splashing and the tongue taste
and For a moment this good time would never end
You and me
You and me
Just wasting time
I was kissing you,
kissing me love
From a good day into the moonlight
Now a night so fine
Makes us wanna stay, stay, stay, stay, stay for awhile.

Makes you wanna… (two times)
Makes me wanna… (two times)
Don’t it make you wanna?

Wasting time
I shall miss this thing
When it all rolls by
What a day…
Wanna stay, stay, stay, stay, stay for awhile.

Hey, love
Oh just groping you
Rolling in the mud
Stay a while
oh Come on love
Wanna stay, stay, stay, stay, stay for awhile

Makes me wanna, makes me wanna stay…(ten times)

Make you wanna stay…don’t it?(eleven times)
