Under The Pink

Pretty Good Year

Tears on the sleeve of a man don't wanna be a boy today
heard the eternal footman bought himself a bike to
race and Greg he writes letters and burns his CDs they
say you were something in those formative years hold
onto nothing as fast as you can well still pretty good year

Maybe a bright sandy beach is gonna bring you back may not
so now you've off you're gonna see America well let me tell
you something about America pretty good year some things
are melting now well what's it gonna take till my baby's alright

and Greg he writes letters with his birthday pen sometimes
he's aware that they're drawing him in Lucy was pretty
your best friend agreed well still pretty good year

God

God sometimes you just don't come through
God sometimes you just don't come through
do you need a woman to look after you
God sometimes you just don't come through

You make pretty daisies pretty daisies
love I gotta find what you've doing about
things here a few witches burning gets a little toasty
here I gotta find why you always go when the wind blows
tell me you've crazy maybe then then I'll understand
you got your 9 iron in the back seat just in case heard
you've gone south well babe you love your new 4 wheel I
gotta find why you always go when the wind blows

Will you even tell her if you decide to make the sky fall
will you even tell her if you decide to make her sky

Bells for Her

and through the life force and there goes her friend
on her Nishiki it's out of time
and through the portal they can make amends

hey would you say whatever we're blanket friends
can't stop what's coming
can't stop what's on its way

and through the walls they made their mudpies
I've got your mind I said she said I've your voice
I said you don't need my voice girl
you have your own but you never thought it was enough of
so they went years and years like sisters blanket girls
always there through that and this there's nothing we cannot ever fix I said

can't stop what's coming can't stop what's on its way
Bells and footfalls and soldiers and dolls
brothers and lovers she and I were
now she seems to be sand under his shoes
there's nothing I can do can't stop what's coming
can't stop what's on its way

and now I speak to you are you in there
you have her face and her eyes but you are not her
and we go at each other like blank ettes
who can't find their thread and their bare

can't stop loving can't stop what is on its way
and I see it coming and it's on its way

Past the Mission

I don't belive I went too far I said I was willing she said
she knew what my books did not thought she knew what's up

Past the mission behind the prison tower past the mission
I once knew a hot girl past the mission they're closing
every hour past the mission I smell the roses

She said they all think they know him well she knew him
better everyone wanted something from him I did too but
I shut my mouth he just gave me a smile

Hey they found a body not sure it was his but they're using
his name and she gave him shelter and somewhere I know she
knows something only she knows

Baker Baker

Baker Baker baking a cake make me a day
make me whole again and I wonder what's in a day
what's in your cake this time?

I guess you heard he's gone to L.A.
he says that behind my eyes I'm hiding
and he tells me I pushed him away
that my heart's been hard to find

here there must be something here
there must be something here here

Baker Baker can you explain
if truly his heart was made of icing
and I wonder how mine could taste
maybe we could change his mind

I know you're late for your next parade
you came to make sure that I'm not running
well I ran from him in all kinds of ways
guess it was his turn this time

time thought I'd made friends with time
thought we'd be flying maybe not this time

Baker Baker baking a cake make me a day
make me whole again and I wonder
if he's o.k. if you see him, say hi

The Wrong Band

I think it's perfectly clear we're in the wrong band
Ginger is always sincere just not to one man
she called me up and she said you know that I'm drowning
it's the dog trainer again he says that he thinks that
she needs more hands

I think it's perfectly clear we're in the wrong band
Senator let's be sincere as much as you can
he called her up and he said the new prosecutor
soon will be wanting a word so she's got a soft spot
for heels and spurs and there's something believin'
in her voice again said there's something believin'
instead of just leavin'

And she gets her cigars from the sweet fat man
I think it's perfectly clear we're in the wrong band
Heidi says she'll be sincere as much as she can
I called her up and I said you know that I'm drowning
put on your raincoat again cause even the sun's
got a price on it and there's something believin'
in her voice again said there's something believin'
instead of just leavin'

She said it's time I open my eyes
don't be afraid to open your eyes
maybe she's right maybe she's right
maybe she's right maybe she's right

The Waitress

so I want to kill this waitress She's worked
here a year longer than I If I did it fast
you know that's an act of kindness

But I belive in peace I belice in peace Bitch I belive in peace

I want to kill this waitress I can't belive
this violence in mind and is her power
all in her club sandwich

I want to kill this killing wish they're too many
stars and not enough sky Boys all think she's
living kindness ask a fellow waitress
ask a fellow waitress

Cornflake Girl

Never was a cornflake girl thought that was a good solution
hangin with the raisin girls she's gone to the other side
givin us a yo heave ho things are getting kind of gross
and I go at sleepy time this is not really happening
you bet your life it is

Peel out the watchword just peel out the watchword

She knows what's goin on seems we got a cheaper feel now all the
sweeteaze are gone gone to the other side with my encyclopedia
they musta paid her a nice price she's puttin on her string bean
love this is not really happening you bet your life it is

Rabbit where'd you put the keys girl and the man with the golden
gun thinks he knows so much thinks he knows so much Rabbit
where'd you put the keys girl

Icicle

Icicle, Icicle, where are you going?
I have a hiding place when spring marches in
Will you keep watch for me I hear them calling
gonna lay down gonna lay down

greeting the monster in our Easter dresses
Father says bow your head like the Good Book says
I think the Good Book is missing some pages
gonna lay down gonna lay down

and when my hand touches myself
I can finally rest my head
and when they say take of His body
I think I'll take from Mine instead

Getting Off Getting Off while they're all downstairs
singing prayers sing away
he's in my pumpkin p.j.'s
lay your book on my chest
feel the word feel the word
feel the it

I could have I should have
I could have flown you know
I could have I should have
I didn't so

Cloud On My Tongue

Someone's knocking on my kitchen door
leave the wood outside
all the girls here are freezing cold
leave me with your Borneo
I don't need much to keep me warm

don't stop now what you're doing,
what you're doing, my ugly one
bring them all here, hard to hide a,
a hundred girls in your hair
it won't be fair if I hate her,
if I ate her you can go now

You're already in there
I'll be wearing your tattoo
you're already in there

Got a cloud sleeping on my tongue
he goes then it goes and
kiss the violets as they're waking up

leave me with your Borneo
I said leave me the way I was before

You're already in there
I'll be wearing your tattoo
I'm already in circles and circles and circles again
the girl's in circles and circles and circles again
got to stop spinning circles and circles and circles again
thought I was over the bridge now

Space Dog

Way to go Mr. Microphone show us all what you don't know centuries secret
societies he's our commander still space dog

so sure we were on something your feet are finally on the ground he said so sure
we were on something your feet are just on the ground girl

rain and snow our engines have been receiving your eager call there's Colonel
Dirtyfishydishcloth he'll distract her good don't worry so

and to the one you thought was on your side she can't understand she truly
believes the lie

Lemon Pie he's coming through our commander still Space dog lines secure Space dog

Deck the halls I'm young again I'm you again racing turtles the grapefruit is
winning seems I keep getting this story twisted so where's Neil when you need
him deck the halls it's you again it's you again somewhere someone must know
the ending is she still pissing in the river now heard she'd gone moved into a
trailer park

so sure those girls now are in the Navy those bombs our friends can't even hurt
you now and hold those tears cause they're still on your side don't hear the dogs
barking don't say you know we've gone Andromeda stood with those girls
before the hair in pairs it just got nasty and now those girls are gone

Yes, Anastasia

I know what you want the magpies have come
if you know me so well then tell me which hand I use

Make them go make it go

Saw her there in a restaurant
Poppy don't go I know your mother is a good one
but Poppy don't go I'll take you home
show me the things I've been missin'
show me the ways I forgot to be speaking
show me the ways to get back to the garden
show me the ways to get around the get around
show me the ways to button up
buttons that have forgotten they're buttons
well we can't have that forgetting that

girls girls what have we done,
what have we done to ourselves
driving on the vine over clothes lines
but officer I saw the sign
thought I'd been through this in 1919
counting the tears of ten thousand men
and gathered them all but my feet are slipping
there's something we left on the windowsill
there's something we left yes

We'll see how brave you are we'll see how fast you'll be running
we'll see how brave you are yes, Anastasia
and all your dollies have friends

Thought she deserved no less than she'd give
well happy birthday her blood's on my hands
it's kind of a shame cause i did like that dress
it's funny the things that you find in the rain
the things that you find, yes, in the mall
and in the date-mines in the knot still in her hair
on the bus I'm on my way down on my way down
all the girls seem to be there

Come along now little darlin'
come along now with me
come along little darlin'
we'll see how brave you are
