Ding Dong Dead

Hear the screams in Herald Square
Ding-Ding Dong
The dead will walk so unaware
Ding-Ding Dong
And though sublime is
not your fare
The smell of hungerís in the air

Walk the shadow if you dare
Ding-Ding Dong
The cutting edge is in your stare
You stalk your prey so laissez-fare

Life and death and sex and sin and
birth and soul and hell and
God and love
Love is too wrong
Love is too long
Love is too strong
(repeat)



Bleeding

An empty picture frame sits
in your room
You gaze in your plastic crystal ball
And heíll be home soon
One knocks you to the ground
And leaves your soul out to dry
And all that you have found
Is love lies
Love lies
Now and Always
Use all your depth perception
As you are
And feel the endless solitude
Beneath your fallen star
One knocks you to the ground
And leaves you out to dry
And all that you have found
Is Love lies
Love lies
Now and Always
(Love Lies)
Now and Always
(Love Lies)
Now and Always
(Love Lies)
Now and Always
(Love Lies)
(repeat)
Now and always
(Iím Bleeding)



Too Late

Here in this house
The ivy will cling to the wall,
Deaf to it all
Here in this house
Are you happy Iím gone?
Do you still swallow the dawn?
Just like a newborn phoenix
Wrought from the ash
Like when we were
Wild as the rain
Wild as the rain
On a sudden morning
Spring hurricane
We had nothing to lose
And now its just pain

Itís too late
And I canít worry now
Itís too late
And I canít stand the rain
Anymore

Here in this house
As the walls decompose
Waiting to close on me
Here in this house
Our palace of pleasure and pain
And thereís nothing to gain
And if the world is so cruel
Wishing you down
When you stumble and fall
I crumble and fall
And you look for some cool
Stranger to burn you
To carry the flame
Of when we were
Wild as the rain
(repeat chorus)



Blind

Pierce through the soul
Leaving the raging eye that keeps
You sullen and inhale the lives of
Ones that leave you cold
But, just a little bold
And look to the sky screaming a
Bitter prayer that no one will
Answer to far from the foreign
Tirade that bled your mind
And left you dry,
Leave you dry,
Always dry,
Pay for sorrow and
You pay for joy
Lay down empty
Like a broken toy
Pray hard for something to hold
On to and then you die-
To love or be loved

Tear out the pages that teaches of
Turning the cheek
Cuz thatís for the meek ones
Give over your soul
He says, not much to ask
But most will oblige
And on bent knee
You drink of the holy wine
Injected with sodom and
Turn from the poison shrine
That leaves you morbid,
Afraid to die,
Smell the lie,
Leaving you blind

Will the real father
Please take a stand and
Lead us far from the burden of man
And lead us not in perfect light
Or weíll be blind
Weíll be blind, blind



Breakable

I may appear to be strong
Solid as a rock
I may appear to be hard
That is all talk
See I am capable
I am able
I am Breakable

I may appear to be tough
Rough sometimes I play
I may appear to be hard
That is all charade
See I am capable
I am able

Do you want to see me cry?
Do you want to see me cry?
Do you want to see me cry?
ĎCause I am able
I am capable
And I am Breakable
I am Breakable



MacArthur Park

Spring was never waiting for us,
Still it rain one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages,
We were pressed
In loves hot fevered iron like a
Striped pair of paints

MacArthur Park is melting
In the dark
All the sweet green icing
Flowing down
Someone left the cake
Out in the rain
I donít think that I can take it
Cuz it took so long to bake it
And Iíll never have that recipe again

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave on the ground
Beneath your knees
Birds like tender babies in your hand
And the old men playing
Chinese checkers
ĎNeath the trees

Thereíll be another song for me
And I will sing it
Thereíll be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine
While itís warm
And never let you catch me
Looking at the sun -
And after the loves of my life
Youíll still be the one
And Iíll ask myself why - why
(Repeat chorus)



Februaery 14th, 1979

Turn your mother on her backside
Looking for a real juke box slammer
And your brain dead trick
Burn another hole into the
Arm of the brave
While your mind gets thick
Leave home and spit
In the face of the
Judgment that makes you sick
Run far, try to live your
Life too hard
Just to make the climb
Time will only bring you more time
And time was only made for you to see
Youíre holding on by rusty nails and
Tattered string so

Drink your wine, Valentine
Fall in line, feel, superfine

Standing on the inside lookin for a real
Graveyard digger is a royal bitch
And no matter how hard you try
You just canít, canít find your niche
Standin in the soup line
And your mind says
Oh, youíre filthy rich
Thereís no one listening when you talk
Just to pass the time
Time will only nickel and dime
Time will bring you down
Time was only made for you to see
Youíre holdin on by rusty nails and
Tattered string so
(Repeat chorus)


Soldier of War

Soldier of War
Here at the door
Still standing in the rain
Soldier no more
Lay down your arms
And find me
Tied up and twisted

Cry me a river
Of infinite fear
Crystalline Windsong
Only brings you to tears
Drawing me nearer
In the garden of stone
Play me the Windsong
Your Windsong
Wingsong brings me down

Soldier you knew
That I would be to
Shellshocked and pure
But you would be too
Lay down your arms
And find me
Tied up and twisted
