Ignoreland
These bastards stole their power
From the victims of the Us v. Them years
Wrecking all things virtuous and true
The undermining social democratic downhill slide into abysmal
Lost lamb off the precipice into the trickle down runoff pool
They hypnotised the summer, 1979
Marched into the capital
Brooding duplicitous, wicked and able, media-ready
Heartless, and labeled, super U.S. citizen, super achiever
Mega ultra power dosing, relax
Defense, defense, defense, defense, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ignoreland
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ignoreland

The information nation took their clues from all the sound-bite gluttons
1980, 84, 88, 92 too, too
How to be what you can be, jump jam junking your energies
How to walk in dignity with throw-up on your shoes
They amplified the autumn, 1979
Calculate the capital, up the republic my skinny ass
T.V. tells a million lies, the paper's terrified to report
Anything that isn't handed on a presidential spoon
I'm just profoundly frustrated by all this, so, fuck you, man
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ignoreland
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ignoreland

If they weren't there we would have created them, maybe, it's true
But I'm resentful all the same, someone's got to take the blame
I know that this is vitriol, no solution, spleen-venting
But I feel better having screamed, don't you?
They desecrated winter, 1979
Capital collateral. Brooding duplicitous, wicked and able, media-ready
Heartless, and labeled, super U.S. citizen, super achiever
Mega ultra power dosing, relax
Defense, defense, defense, defense, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ignoreland
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ignoreland
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ignoreland
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Star Me Kitten
Keys cut, three for the price of one
Nothing's free but guaranteed for a lifetime's use
I've changed the locks
And you can't have one
You, you know the other two

The brakes have worn so thin that you could hear
I hear them screeching through the door from our driveway
Hey love, look into your glovebox heart
What is there for me inside? This love is tired
I've changed the locks, have I misplaced you?
Have we lost our minds?
Will this never end?
It could depend on your take

You, me, we used to be on fire
If keys are all that stand between
Can I throw in the ring?
No gasoline
Just fuck me kitten
You are wild and I'm in your possesion
Nothing's free so, fuck me kitten

I'm in your possesion
So, fuck me kitten

Hey Andy are you goofing on Elvis? Hey, baby
Are we losing touch?

If you believed they put a man on the moon
Man on the moon
If you believe there's nothing up my sleeve
Then nothing is cool

Moses went walking with a staff of wood
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

If you believe there's nothing up my sleeve
Then nothing is cool

Here's a little agit for the never-believer
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Here's a little ghost for the offering
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Here's a truck stop instead of Saint Peter's
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Mister Andy Kaufman's gone wrestling
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey Andy did you hear about this one?
Tell me, are you locked in the punch?
Hey Andy are you goofing on Elvis, hey baby
Are we losing touch?

Drive
Smack, crack, bushwhacked
Tie another one to the racks, baby

Hey kids, rock and roll
Nobody tells you where to go, baby

What if I ride? What if you walk?
What if you rock around the clock?
Tick-tock, tick-tock
What if you did? What if you walk?
What if you tried to get off, baby?

Hey, kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby

Hey kids, shake a leg
Maybe you're crazy in the head, baby

Maybe you did, maybe you walked
Maybe you rocked around the clock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Maybe I ride, maybe you walk
Maybe I drive to get off, baby

Hey kids, shake a leg
Maybe you're crazy in the head, baby

Ollie, ollie
Ollie ollie ollie
Ollie ollie in come free, baby

Hey, kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby

Smack, crack, shack-a-lack
Tie another one to your back, baby

Hey kids, rock and roll
Nobody tells you where to go, baby

Maybe you did, maybe you walk
Maybe you rock around the clock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Maybe I ride, maybe you walk
Maybe I drive to get off, baby

Hey kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby

Hey kids, rock and roll
Nobody tells you where to go, baby, baby, baby

Try Not To Breathe
I will try not to breathe
I can hold my head still with my hands at my knees
These eyes are the eyes of the old, shiver and fold

I will try not to breathe
This decision is mine, I have lived a full life
And these are the eyes that I want you to remember, Oh

I need something to fly over my grave again
I need something to breathe

I will try not to burden you
I can hold these inside, I will hold my breath
Until all these shivers subside
Just look in my eyes

I will try not to worry you
I have seen things that you will never see
Leave it to memory me, I shudder to breathe

I want you to remember, Oh (you will never see)
I need something to fly (something to fly)
Over my grave again (you will never see)
I need something to breathe (something to breathe)
Baby, don't shiver now
Why do you shiver now? (I will see things you will never see)
I need something to fly (something to fly)
Over my grave again (I will see things you will never see)
I need something to breathe
Oh, Oh, Oh

I will try not to worry you
I have seen things that you will never see
Leave it to memory me, don't dare me to breathe.

I want you to remember, Oh (you will never see)
I need something to fly (something to fly)
Over my grave again. (you will never see)
I need something to breathe (something to breathe)
Baby, don't shiver now
Why do you shiver now? (I will see things you will never see)
I need something to breathe (something to breathe)
(I have seen things you will never see)

I want you to remember

The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight
This here is the place I will be staying
There isn't a number, you can call the pay phone
Let it ring a long, long, long, long time
If I don't pick up, hang up, call back, let it ring some more
If I don't pick up, pick up...
The sidewinder sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a coil

Call me when you try to wake her up
Call me when you try to wake her...

There are scratches all around the coin slot
Like a heartbeat, baby trying to wake up
But this machine can only swallow money
You can't lay a patch by computer design
It's just a lot of stupid, stupid signs

Tell her
Tell her she can kiss my ass
Then laugh and say that you were only kidding
That way she'll know that it's really, really, really, really me

Call me when you try to wake her up
Call me when you try to wake her...

Baby, instant soup doesn't really grab me
Today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial
A can of beans or blackeyed peas, some Nescafe and ice
A candy bar, a falling star, or a reading of Doctor Seuss

Call me when you try to wake her up
Call me when you try to wake her...

The cat in the hat came back, wrecked a lot of havoc on the way
Always had a smile and a reason to pretend
But their world has flat backgrounds
And little need to sleep but to dream
The sidewinder sleeps on his back

Call me when you try to wake her up
Call me when you try to wake her...
I can always sleep standing up...

We've got to moogie, moogie, move on this one

Everybody Hurts
When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on
Don't let yourself go, 'cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong, now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts, take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts, don't throw your hand, Oh, no, Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries, and everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes
So, hold on, hold on...

(Everybody hurts, you are not alone)
[ Seznam skladeb ]

Sweetness Follows
Readying to bury your father and your mother
What did you think when you lost another?
I used to wonder why did you bother
Distanced from one, blind to the other?

Listen here my sister and my brother
What would you care if you lost the other?
I always wonder why did we bother
Distanced from one, deaf to the other

Oh, oh, but sweetness follows

It's these little things, they can pull you under
Live your life filled with joy and wonder
I always knew this altogether thunder
Was lost in our little lives

Oh, oh, but sweetness follows
Oh, oh, but sweetness follows

It's these little things, they can pull you under
Live your life filled with joy and thunder
Yeah, yeah we were altogether
Lost in our little lives

Oh, Oh, Ah

Oh, oh, but sweetness follows
Oh, oh, but sweetness follows

Monty Got A Raw Deal
Monty, this seems strange to me
The movies had that movie thing
But nonsense has a welcome ring
And heroes don't come easy

Now, nonsense isn't new to me
I know my head, I know my feet
But mischief knocked me in the knees
Said, just let go, just let go

I saw the ocean meet the man
I saw you buried in the sand
A friend was there to hold your hand
Said, walk on by

So, I went walking through the street
I saw you strung up in a tree
A woman knelt there said to me
Said, hold your tongue, man, hold your tongue

You don't owe me anything
You don't want this sympathy (waste your breath)
Don't you waste your breath (waste your breath)
For the silver screen

That nonsense doesn't mean a thing
They tried to bust you in a sting
But virtue isn't everything
So, don't waste time

Now, here's a rhyme that you can steal
Put this on your reel to reel
Mischief threw a rotten deal
Monty's laying low, man
He is laying low
Just let go, y'all
Just let go

You don't owe me anything
You don't want this sympathy [waste your breath]
Don't you waste your breath [waste your breath]
Monty, this seems strange to me

Nightswimming
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago
Turned around backwards so the windshield shows
Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse
Still, it's so much clearer
I forgot my shirt at the water's edge
The moon is low tonight

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
I'm not sure all these people understand
It's not like years ago
The fear of getting caught
Of recklessness and water
They cannot see me naked
These things, they go away
Replaced by everyday

Nightswimming, remembering that night
September's coming soon
I'm pining for the moon
And what if there were two
Side by side in orbit
Around the fairest sun?
That bright, tight forever drum
Could not describe nightswimming

You, I thought I knew you
You I cannot judge
You, I thought you knew me
This one laughing quietly underneath my breath
Nightswimming

The photograph reflects
Every streetlight a reminder
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night, deserves a quiet night

Find The River
Hey now, little speedyhead
The read on the speedmeter says
You have to go to task in the city
Where people drown and people serve
Don't be shy, your just deserve
Is only just light years to go

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon
I have got to leave to find my way
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

The ocean is the river's goal
A need to leave the water knows
We're closer now than light years to go

I have got to find the river
Bergamot and vetiver
Run through my head and fall away
Leave the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

There's no one left to take the lead
But I tell you and you can see
We're closer now than light years to go
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
Fall into the ocean

The river to the ocean goes
A fortune for the undertow
None of this is going my way
There is nothing left to throw
Of ginger, lemon, indigo
Coriander stem and rose of hay
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naivete
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
All of this is coming your way
