Sad Waters

Down the road I look and there runs Mary
Hair of gold and lips like cherries
We go down to the river where the willows weep
Take a naked root for a lovers seat
That rose out of the bitten soil
But sound to the ground by creeping ivy coils
O Mary you have seduced my soul
And I don't know right from wrong
Forever a hostage of your child's world

And then I ran my tin-cup heart along
The prison of her ribs
And with a toss of her curls
That little girl goes wading in
Rollin her dress up past her knee
Turning these waters into wine
Then she platted all the willow vines

Mary in the shallows laughing
Over where the carp dart
Spooked by the new shadows that she cast
Across these sad waters and across my heart

:: it's not up to you

i wake up
and the day feels broken
i tilt my head
i'm trying to get an angle

'cause the evening
i've always longed for
it could still happen

how do i master
the perfect day
six glasses of waterS
seven phonecalls

if you leave it alone
it might just happen
anyway

it's not up to you
well, it never really was...

if you wake up
and the day feels a-broken
just lean into the crack
just lean into the crack
and it will t r e m b l e ever so nicely
notice
how it sparkles
down there

i can decide what i give
but it's not up to me
what i get given

unthinkable surprises
about to happen
but what they are

it's not up to you
well, it never really was...

there is too much
clinging
to peak
there is too much
p r e s s u r e

Blume

Chrysantemum
For you I am a chrysantemum
Supernova, urgent star

Astera Compositae
For you I`ll be a dandelion
a thousand flowerettes in the sky
Or just a drop in the ocean

If you know my name
don't speak it out
it holds a power — as before

Liliacea
A lily of the valley
a flower of saron

Helianthus annus
For you I even be a sunflower
Do you hear my enlightening laughter?
another reason to cut off an ear

For you know my name, do you not?
don't say it
For it is sacred, immovable frozen

Rosa, Anemone et Nymphea alba
I'll even be a waterlily,
a marygold, a rose
or a little thistle

Euphorbia
a blue dahlia, a black tulip
that's where opinions differ
the scholars disagree

My name, should you know it
remains unspeakable
and is spoken — malediction

To Bring You My Love

I was born in the desert
I been down for years
Jesus, come closer
I think my time is near
And i've traveled over
Dry earth and floods
Hell and high water
To bring you my love

Climbed over mountains
Traveled the sea
Cast down off heaven
Cast down on my knees
I've lain with the devil
Cursed god above
Forsaken heaven
To bring you my love

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

I know he's gonna be here
You know he's gonna be here
Yeah alright

Forsaken heaven
Cursed god above
Laid with the devil
Bring you my love

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies

The words are so familiar-
all the same greats, the same mistakes
It doesn't have to be like this


If you don't make a friend now
One might make you
So learn
The gentle art of making enemies


Don't look so surprised
Happy birthday...fucker
Blow that candle out,
We're gonna kick you, kick you


[Don't say you're not because you are]
[Don't say you're not because you are]
[History tells us that you are]
[History tells us that you are]


And all you need is just one more excuse
You put up one hell of a fight, you put up one hell of a fight
I wanna hear you very best excuse
I never felt this much alive, I never felt this much alive


Your day has finally come-
So where the hat and do the dance
And let the suit keep wearing you.


This year you'll sit and take it
And you will like it-
It's the gentle art of making enemies


I deserve a reward
Cuz I'm the best fuck that you ever had
And if I tighten up my hole-
You may never see the light again


[There's always an easy way out]
[There's always an easy way out]
[You need something wet in your mouth]
[You need something wet in your mouth]


I never felt this much alive
