Track Name: Wings Of Desire
sometimes i feel so wrongly
and the geeks in their beds hardly know
avant geek, there's no show
the trapeze girl walked out last night
in her trailer there's a burning light
alone she leads herself on one last dance and she's done

her eyes like a shiny shiny star
and the moon in her blouse, brighter then the sun
and she smiles
wings of desire

he yelled at her to get her wings on
and fly above their heads
and the bald man
and the children's hair
in her trailer the carny plays
so alone she leads herself on one last dance and she's done

her eyes like a shiny shiny star
and the moon in her blouse, brighter then the sun
and she smiles
wings of desire

her eyes like a shiny shiny star
and the moon in her blouse, brighter then the sun
and she smiles
wings of desire
Track Name: Anita
where have you been
my old hearted queen
scars 'round her belly
with lies tumbled down her face

took her to the parlor
where I made her mine
sighs pouring out a white throat
and escaping down her spine

a little bit strange
with weary eyes and sloven hands
she made her dreams tangible
with her workers charm

took her to the ocean
where she laughed, happy in the winter waves
bruises on her ankles
like a lovers kiss

Anita like a wallflower
wilted hands and hearts
cradled heartbreak in her safe arms
upon this frozen hearth

Anita like a wallflower
wilted hands and hearts
sleepless in her summer dress
she lay upon my hearth

the girl with her tears like blue weapons
declared her war
and felt as 7 fingers crept slowly up her skirt

take me down with you

where have you been
my old hearted queen
I lost faith in ever
seeing your dark eyes again

Made me man
though a lady I stayed
and did you ever find a love
that could compare to me

Anita like a wallflower
wilted hands and hearts
cradled heartbreak in her safe arms
upon this frozen

Anita like a wallflower
wilted hands and hearts
sleepless in her summer dress
staked her claim upon my heart

take me down with you
Track Name: Come To Me
come to me

took you to the warmest house
and you broke and kept my love for you
the warmest airs a bitter cave
this lovely sounding town caved in
lovely sounding hound caved in
howled into the night again
howled into my roof caved in

and i never knew what i done to you
i never knew what i done to you
honey, come and get me

trapped inside my water grave
with river pounding in my brain
the coldest hearts a bitter tune
this river swallowed town again
river swallowed town again
howled into the night again
it roared until my roof caved in

and i never knew what i done to you
i never knew what i done to you
honey, come and get me

come to me

you saved me kept me from the din
and you kept from me the love i am
babies teeth in my minds eye
i'll miss my baby til i die
miss my baby til i die
i'll miss his teeth and miss his cry
miss my baby til i die

and i never knew what i done to you
i never knew what i done to you
honey, come and kiss me
Track Name: Beggar Girl
the girl with lavender eye said you are the one who made me a man
took her right hand and wrapped it clear round her lovers throat as pale snow
took his motorcycle out for a spin
baby yours is the face that I see
when I start to dream

few were the words that i said
when I saw my face when I saw my crumbling head
few were the limbs that I spared
when I saw my love lying with his red lips
upon hers

I know you spared me more then her
I hope you worship every word

suzanne, with your heart so cold your crimson sighs and sloven hands
your dark eyes bright in the rain called out for cravings that we found
beggar girl, you called me
baby yours is the heart that I break
when I start to dream

I know you spared me more then her
You know I worshipped every word

woke to find my muses dead
with snow piled up cold around their silken heads
tried to steal their hearts
but as I cut through their dresses my genius escaped through the seams
through the thread

Beggar girl, you called me
Track Name: Old Blood
i wanted her to be my bride
her long white veil and her dark rimmed eyes
take it off take it off take it off take it off

down in the valley where the dark wind blows
and the dark it preys on a little girls soul
give me your money and i'll show you my hands

she's old blood

there's a woman in the corner
with man eyes man hands man jacket man winks
think he's a man
think he's a man

he's old blood

i wanted her to be my bride
she looked at me with her dark rimmed eyes
and i'm gone

take it off take it off take it off take it off
take it off take it off take it off take it off

she's old blood
Track Name: Pretty Ones
we built our love on the pure incessanty of your mind
incessant in its crying
brother i think your rivers empty
and the fish flew in from the sea

oh take me home
oh take me home

brother your rivers empty and i gotta to go home
you got no business with the pretty ones
we pay our beauty taxes so don't try to sneak away
we're the pretty ones
we're the pretty ones
we're the pretty ones
you're the one

i stole my thoughts from the better boys
the dogs and their pick up lines
make me wanna faint
make me wanna cry

oh you got so much to live for
so why don't you live for somebody else

we're the pretty ones
we're the pretty ones
we're the pretty ones
you're the one

there's a man outside my window as big as my arm
there's a man outside my window as big as my arm
and you drive so fearlessly

we're the pretty ones
we're the pretty ones
we're the pretty ones
you're the one
Track Name: On Stage
can you howl like a dead beast parting the sea
on stage you're like a different man and i want you both
long legs and one hand in your pocket
while the other leaps around and paints the air with sound

the microphone is like my lips
to whom you kiss
growling out your angry fears
into a metal ear

baby can't you see me
i imitate your style
swagger 'round and smile
with madness beckoning at the corners of my mouth

and now i wait and hold me breath
and its me with these dark curtains worn like a dress
torn at the edges by the boots that you gave me
frayed at the corners by nervous fingers

my lovely indecisive man
i take credit for all your greed
it was with me you first made a song
so real you could feel it in your palm

my lovely indecisive man
i take credit for all your greed
it was with me you first made a song
so real i could feel it in my palm

the microphone is like my lips
to whom you kiss
growling out your angry fears
into a metal ear

baby can't you see me
i imitate your style
swagger 'round and smile
with madness beckoning at the corners of my mouth
Track Name: Wings Of Desire, spencer mix
sometimes i feel so wrongly
