Lipstick & Bruises

You kiss me on the way up
Kick me when I fall down
Under the radar
Stick me in the lost and found
Lipstick and bruises
Up and down

[CHORUS:]
This is what you always wanted
It's what you asked for
This is what you always wanted
And now you want more

Now these are all your new friends
Baby

In The Lost & Found

He held his breath
To hold your hand
To walk the stairsteps in pairs
Climbing up the slippery slope
Im in love
God, I hope(? )
Dont go home angelina
Stay with me
Hanging around in the lost and found
He kissed her quick
Feeling weird
Lonely (? )
Disappear
This is such a simple place
Passing time
Getting (? )
Dont dont go go home angelina
Make tomorrow new
Day breaks
And every morning when he wakes
He thinks of you
Im alone
Thats ok
I dont mind
Most of the time
I dont feel afraid to die
She was here, passing by
Dont dont go go home angelina
Stay with me
Hanging around in the lost and found
Stay with me
Hanging around in the lost and found

Midnight At The Lost & Found

Hey ricky, now mine is empty, how about one for you
We could sell it out together, seems tomorrows overdue
Captain video, done went home, one pilot laid to rest
And dragon ladies now talk that talk, about who loves who, who loves best
Silver bullets in the jukebox, spin another round
Everybody at the back of the line, its midnight at the lost and found
Chorus:
Midnight at the lost and found, lost souls in the hunting ground
A remedy for all your ills, at the lost and found
Midnight at the lost and found, midnight
Have a double, its gettin late, youll get home, just rely on fate
Place just finally came alive, good old boys just arrived
Stools keep changin faces, and the night just slips away
And like a long distance love affair, soon youve got to pay
Silver bullets in the jukebox, spin another round
Everybody at the back of the line, its midnight at the lost and found
(chorus)
Hangin on barely, hitch a ride away
Belly up and bury, boy, all the hurt you feel today
Hangin on barely, hitch a ride away
Belly up and bury, boy, all the hurt you feel today
Silver bullets in the jukebox, spin another round
Everybody get back in line, last call for the lost and found
(chorus repeats out...)
(chorus)

Midnight At The Lost And Found

Hey Ricky, now mine is empty
How about one for you
We could set it out together

Is It The Station Of' The Lost and Lonely Soul…?

Where is the peace…?
In the whirring's of my mind,
Cartwheel after cartwheel
Even in these depths of rem sleep,
There is no slumber.
…Dreams come thick and fast:
As the snoring, begins its thunder…

Why, even now the world whistles
In the silence of this nightmare my lord
And even now, sleeping, hot-pulses
Race like a train, with a dead river
On board rolling through, empty-carriages.
O' now babies are being born …wailing
In my arms, awaiting, their mother.

'Lord what's this crazy station, called'?
Here where plastic surgeons…
Is working-out of' a dusty bivouac?
Doing, jigsaw body-part transplants.
With all these sights and sounds,
Now grinning, Lord, what are all these
Experimental insanities, for…?

O' am I just a mangy-dog running loose off the leash?
Where days blink-out of a bird-cage
O' here I see an albatross following me overhead.
O' lord, I call him my own Damien angel
But, lord he just walks-on the millet's of my life
Crushes it without morals, he's just a playful widow.
Making all kinds; of mischief with the living and dead.

'And, I'm just a red-flag, ready to fall
Lord what's this crazy station, called'?
Am I just a mangy-dog running loose off your leash?
Listening to the silence; whistling endlessly mad.
Experimental insanities, whistling's endlessly mad like a thief.
In my head 'Lord what's this crazy station, called'?
Is it the station of' The Lost and Lonely Soul…?

Be that what you want to be

You me and every one
Are always in the path of
Becoming that which we all want to be

A word of caution
We should be not that because someone is that
Still, if it is worth
We should be that with our special touch
And with our uniqueness

But we loose the tract
In the middle
Because of obstacles that surface
And we change the picture which we originally conceived
And we keep changing this too frequently
We are not any where near to what we originally wanted to be

Obstacles are many
Leave alone external hurdles
You may yourselve lack
Certain qualities that
Are required to shape you into what you want to be
May be your selfishness
May be your dishonesty
May be your inconsiderate approach
May be your disregard to others' concern
May be your diluted determination
And many others

Instead of thinking about what we want to be
Focus on what you can be
With your knowledge base
With your acquired skills
With your approach to life and people around
With your level of ability to please others
With your potential to win others through love
And other productive internal powers of yours
Weighed against your weaknesses
Arrive at what you can really be
And redefine it as what you want to be

Work towards that
Enthusiastically
Putting yourself under no pressure
And making your all out efforts with pleasure
Minding not others' views on it
Minding not your weaknesses
Minding not others' strength
Minding not slips in between
March ahead and become
What you want to be

Even after that
Be modest by not taking the total credit for yourself
As a lot others have contributed
In your becoming that
A lot others would have taught you valuable lessons
A lot others would have helped you
Visualise your grey areas
A lot others would have wished you
Well in your efforts

Enjoy living
At the same silently making the world understand that
You are that what you wanted to be

Do What You Want, Be What You Are

Do what you want, be what you are
Do what you want girl, but be what you are
There aint no right er wrong way
Just a play from the heart
Lt aint a sign of weakness to give yourself away
Because the strong give up and move on,
While the weak, weak give up and stay
Chorus:
So do what you want to do
But be what you are ...
Do you believe in hot cars,
Leather bars, or movie stars
Is that whats real
Payin dues, earth shoes, chicago blues
Is that how you feel?
You can change, but you cant conceal
Whats deep inside you
Lts your game, lts your deal
Chorus:
So do what you want to do
But be what you are ...

You want answers. Take doubts

You want answers.
There are no answers.
You want some questions.
There are no questions now.
You want something,
There is nothing.
You want this.
There is that.
This and that, they do not
Always come together
And wanting this
You only get that.
See? See.
You want to live in peace
No there is no peace
War has always been with us
You know that, not this.
Oh yes, you want certainties.
You just want to be sure
What is in my hand
Tell me, and I will prove
You wrong, always, I want
To prove you wrong
About certainties, there is
Nothing certain. They just come
When they like coming
And they tell you
You dream, we give
What is best, it may not be what
You are dreaming, or we punish you
By giving what you want
You prayed so earnestly
Oh! These lords these gods
This fate this destiny
They always wait for you
Always hazy, and taken as
X, y, and z
You, it is you that assigns the values
And you can be wrong and even
Still be puzzled.

There is nothing certain.
So?
Well, take the doubts
They are the only things certain
Because they are real.
We live with them everyday.
They are mothers and fathers
And yes, they are gods.

And When You Get What You Want, Is It What You Dreamed?

And when you get what you want, is it what you dreamed?
Did the mirage live up to its reputation, did it exceed
your expectations or is there another award beyond this one?
O endlessly hungry one, pleonaxic emptiness, were you born
like a black hole on a midway of blazing radiance,
a blinding light that serves as a guide to star-nosed moles?
Fulfilment or doom, depression, disappointment, as if
some clown had washed his face off like a painted tear
in a green room mirror, and discovered he was still crying?

You grasp it like the garment of a passing ghost,
sand, water, cloud, and it changes shape in your hands
like the nature of a bird when neither of you understands.
We all wake up to spend the wealth we hoarded in our dreams.
We even greet death with money under our tongue.
In Zen they'd say we're all stealing the Buddha's purse
to buy the Buddha's horse one way or another
whether we can ride it or not, and if today you're disappointed
you'll be mesmerized by something else tomorrow,
a junk dealer going through a widow's private treasures.
You'll open your mouth again like an oyster farm
trying to breed pearls like the philosopher's stone
labouring to turn all these new moons of pitted ore into gold.

Good luck. Hope you're the wiser for it. As for me
and my house, I've never been disappointed
in my wonder at the world, and what I'm doing here
being aware of it all as the world tracks its starmud in
across my homeless threshold and all these ancient footprints
are dance steps back to a self that's just a tic of the emptiness
I catch once and awhile out of the corner of my third eye
abrogating credit for a dream it had nothing to do with
because that's a bird still flapping its wings in a shell
thinking it's being upheld by the wind until someone
cracks it open like a brittle atmosphere and all that space
comes rushing in and you realize with a cosmic sigh of relief
like a sunflower bowing its heavy head, what a great debt
you owe to the nothing that you are that can't possess anything.

You're standing there in all your spiritual bling,
gold necklaces around your throat, chakras and chains
looped like nooses in knots at the end of your spinal cord.
What did you do? Bind yourself to the axis of the earth
to be mistaken for a saint or a martyr, the wobbly snake
of an inebriated caduceus, but where's the fire, where's
the heretic, the apostate, the dragon singing in its own flames,
where even one firefly of insight that consumes the universe?
Or are you just another photo op with mermaids
calling you to the soft rocks of a popular song?
A straw dog in the rain smouldering like methane
on a compost heap after another ritual performance?
You're greedy for joy. You're greedy for illumination
in the spotlight. But bliss is one of the spices of life,
not the main course. And to want more than this
is to declare you're a glutton with lousy spiritual manners.

And O yes I know, you think this is like blooming
and having someone throw acid in your face
when you were anticipating rain on your plum blossoms.
You duck through a hole in the fence like a raccoon
caught pilfering corn in a garden, and you want
a Roman triumph with rosewater and slaves
for passing through the gateless gate to liberation
when all you've really done is barge through
the emergency exit to run from a shotgun loaded with stars
in the hands of a scarecrow trying to terrify the birds
by shooting straight up into the air until things
begin to take root of themselves, and the locust trees
are feathered with the leaves of nesting lapwings
that don't have any further to fall though they feign
a dizzying descent of wounded maple keys
and all the shamans have to heal themselves
by ploughing the ground they were born on into bookshelves.

Your life will become one,
And you will sing inside happily forever-
And the lines you dream
Will always mean more than you can know.

Do You Want Fries With That

I thought that was your voice
I thought that was my car
No we ain't never met before
But I know who you are
You're livin' in my house
And I'm livin' in a tent
Hey don't laugh the second
job of mine
Is paying both our rents
You're out here buying
happy meals
And I'm eatin' rice and pintos
If you so much as crack a
Smile at me man
I'll come through this
Here window
(Chorus)
Man you took my wife
Man you took my kids
And you took that life I
Used to live
My pride, the pool, the boat,
My tools
My dreams, the dog, the cat
Yeah I think that's everything
Oh yeah, I almost forgot
Do you want fries with that
Yeah your ketchup's in the bag
And her check is in tha mail
Now I hope your chicken's
Raw inside
And I hope the bun is stale
Now I'm suppose to tell you
Please come back
But how bout instead
I hope you both choke
On a pickle
Man that would tickle
Me to death
I don't know what your
Waitin' on
You're holdin' up the line
No you ain't got no
Change comin' back
Are you out of your mind
(Repeat Chorus)
(Repeat Chorus)

You Want My Heart to Be Yours to Break

You want some of this.
You want some of that.
You want everything you wish,
To carry in your backpack.
You want my tears to display a sensitivity!
You want my heart to be yours to break.
You want to take my love...
Even though what you give is fake.
You want me to crawl at your beck and call.
But I am not available...
For that subservience at all!
Not today.
I've given myself that time off!

Girl you want (Lyrics)

She sings from somewhere you can't see,
She sits in the top of the greenest tree.
She sends an aroma of undefined love,
It drips on down in a mist from above.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

You hear her calling everywhere you turn,
You know you're headed for the pleasure burn.
But the words get stuck on the tip of your tongue,
She's the real thing, but you knew it all along.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

Look at youw with your mouth watering,
Look at you with your mind reeling.
Why don't you admit it's all over,
She's just the girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She sings from somewhere you can't see,
She sits in the top of the greenest tree.
She sends an aroma of undefined lust,
It drips on down in a mist from above.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

what GOD says to all those snakes...

this afternoon some snakes come into the house
(literally not those snakes with slimy skin
and without feet)
for there are snakes that walk like real people
complete with heads and
other usual parts like the way your friends look like
when you dine
and you pay
when they tell you stories and you listen
and you know
that these are all not true
but because of respect you nod just the same
and say, ok, ok, i agree

this afternoon these snakes come to the house
and we had coffee and biscuits
the usual afternoon talk and bonding
i may not have changed, but they do not know that there is also the fox in me
but still considerate and forgiving and patient and kind
all giving

they ask for rice and viand
and they talk about their undeserved poverty
and without questions
i give them what they ask and pray for
no harm
nothing big for such a kind man like me
i am not an angry man
my hands are open, my fingers are spread
like tributaries from the rivers to the seas

sometimes my fingers ache for these friends are snakes and they all
love to bite
blood flows from my tips
and the carpet gets stained

but i am not an angry man
and i am as patient as ten spiders webbing from one wall to the other
well, normal as i am
i get fed up sometimes and tempted to shout and drive them away
but i look to the sky
and talk to my God and then i begin to ask silently
all those questions
how to deal with snakes
and God says: 'my son, these snakes are your brothers and sisters
feed them well, please me
for i am the owner of the sea and the land and the sky
yours is but a coin
a patch, an atom
and so negligible

in fact, my son, you own nothing, you only manage what i own
and give you
feed them all, make them comfortable
do not argue, do not say a dirty word
look at me, they bit me too
but did i say a word? you haven't heard me
for like you, snake or man or god
you are all my children....

Do You Want To Be Disturbed?

Do you want to be disturbed?
By your family
By your friend
By your relation
By unknown people

Do you want to be disturbed?
With their problem
With their need
With their worry
With their temptation

Do you want to be disturbed?
In inconvenient place
In unexpected moment
In weary condition
In mixed emotion

Do you want to be disturbed?
And will you be glad
And will you grumble
And will you ignore
And will you be generous

Do you want to be disturbed?
And still give your ears
And still give your hands
And still give your smile
And still give your hour

In The Lost And Found

The imitation picks you up like a habit
Riding in the glow of the tv static
Taking out the trash to the man
Give the people something they understand
Mistake a nervous flash for a fine-line smile
Junk bond trader trying to sell a sucker a stock
Rich man in a poor man's clothes
The permanent installment of the daily dose
And you tell me, "fool, you tell it like it is"
Your wall's gone wider than your head trip is
Checking into a small reality
Void as a drug you take too regularly
>>The acolyte's laugh; the broken crutch
>> The first true love folded at the slightest touch
Brought down like an old hotel
People digging through the rubble for things they can resell
"happy holidays," said sid the saviour
Believe in love i still favour
I won't take your medicine
I don't need a remedy
To be everything i'm supposed to be
I don't want nobody else
I can do it by myself
We're meant to be together
Now i'm a policeman directing traffic
Keeping everything moving, everything static
I'm the hitchhiker you recognize passing
On your way to some everlasting...
Better sell it while you can
Better sell it while you can
Better sell it while you can
Better sell it while you can

Starting To Come To Me

Its started to come to me
Your new career would probably end like this
All that professional lipstick pressed into an amateur kiss
Farewell to the studied lines and carefully broken hearts
The overpowering perfume and the glimpse of her garter
Mingling with the sweet smoldering scent of the martyr
Well its starting to come to me (come to me, come to me)
Starting to come to me
So you began to recognize the well-dressed man that everybody loves
It started when you chopped off all the fingers of those pony skin gloves
Then you cut a hole out where the lovelight used to shine
Your tears of pleasure equal measure crocodile and brine
You try to laugh it off saying I knew all the time...
But its starting to come to me (come to me, come to me)
Starting to come to me
Sometimes you bring me down to play reluctant confidant
You say you may reward him if he gives you what you want
But these are days to treasure and to hold
They are much too precious to be sold
Youd probably play the pirate if you werent so busy digging up the gold
Now you could tell he wanted you cause you almost taste it on his breath
But you always cheated life just like the bold dare-devil cheated death
Incidentally, late last night your understudy finally got what you deserve
In private shes seductive but in public shes prim, porcelain and nervous
Afraid someone will recognize the shame in her eyes
Youve still got your dignity or the next best disguise
You never know when to say no and when to compromise
But its starting to come to me (come to me, come to me)
