Sharks

She stuck a cigarette right in between her lips

and then she crossed her legs

He struck and match and turned to her

Smoke rose it began to burn

Twisting past their heads

Oh baby don’t, baby don’t

There are sharks in the water.

Sharks on the street

You can talk about morality, but we’re just meat.

Saw a shark at the dance club,

he had trouble with his fist pump

Met a shark at an atm – seemed cool till he ate his friend

He was going at those legs

He was snappin’ on those legs

Oh baby don’t, baby don’t

There are sharks in the water

Sharks on the street

You can talk about morality but we’re just meat

Prowling through behind a barstool they eat em’ up

Vacuum up your wallet too. Suck it up

Lurking just out of view, they lick their lips

Out on the street, we’re little fish

Oh baby don’t, baby don’t cause

There are sharks in the water

Sharks on the street

You can talk about morality, but we’re just meat

(talk about morality but we’re just meat)

You can talk about morality, but we’re just meat.

Bluebonnet Trail

Fire’s burning; come sit down

I had some food; it’s gone now

Lifes not bad, though often sad

Always sweetest looking back

These flames have got me lit

I’ll soon be on my way

To find my way back to Bluebonnet Trail

Everything seems smaller now

My head is farther from the ground

These hills once made it hard to breathe

Now just roll beneath my feet

The sign said almost there

The next one farther still

But ill find my way back to Bluebonnet Trail

It’s been so long,

It’s been so long,

It’s been so long,

Golden grass all overgrown

Shattered bottles broken stone

I was there; I was alone,

When cheeks are wet,

 the air is cold

I ran my fingers down

The sign saying almost there

As I made my way out of Bluebonnet Trail

Me With You

If I could show the love I have inside me

to you, I bet you’d be amazed

It’s all been bubbling and burning

trying to find a way to escape

Well let’s just say you understood and asked me to be good to you

I’d finally get to show you how I’d treat you if I was allowed

If you just said what the hell, and popped on by to ring my bell

Id make sure that you really knew

How very good is me with you

I’ve ached for you to see me

and know just who I am

I feel on fire, I do

But all you see’s a man in front of you

So lets just say you understood and asked me to be good to you

I’d finally get to show you how I’d treat you if I was allowed

If you just say what the hell and pop on by to ring my bell

Id make sure that you really knew

How very good is me with you

I need you to take

All I can give

But im weak

And I don’t know where to begin

So lets just say you understood and asked me to be good to you

I’d finally get to show you how I’d treat you if I was allowed

If you just say what the hell and pop on by to ring my bell

Id make sure that you really knew

How very good is me with you

That’s all I really want to do

All For Something

I was outnumbered. I was outgunned.

But surrender simply wasn’t an option

With my chin up, in position,

I was ready for a suicide mission

Then she finds me

And she guides me

Whispers don’t worry

This is all for something

My father held me as a boy, told me suffering would carve a place for joy.

Love the truth, find your voice, and use it when the bully’s taking other kids toys

But I’ve been worn down. My body aches, and everyday I think I’m just a bit more afraid

And I’ve cried, even though I said I never would

Then she finds me

And she guides me

Whispers don’t worry

This is all for something

Almost time now, breath running out

I become so cold

Then she finds me

She guides me

Whispers don’t worry

This is all for something

After Moon

CRAZY HOW THE EARTHS BEEN SPINNIN’ LATELY

CAN’T LOOK UP WITHOUT THE SUN AND MOON TRADING PLACES

SWEATIN’ THROUGH MY JACKET IN ENDLESS FEVER

WAKING UP ALONE IN A COLD CATHEDRAL

LIGHT LIKE PERFUME FROM HER SOUL SO CLEAN

SHE HELD MY HAND WHILE CROSSING THE STREET

CROWN OF BALLOONS AND A CLUMSY MOUTH

SHE REALLY KNOCKED ME OUT

ITS BEEN HARD, AND ITS BEEN DARK

BUT IT’S ALMOST AFTER MOON; THE SUN’S COMING SOON

I CAN’T SEE OUTSIDE MY WINDOW WITHOUT A FLASH LIGHT

STUMBLIN’ WITH MY GROCERIES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

WRITING POETRY I CAN’T READ

I’M DRINKING CHAMPAGNE CAUSE I CAN’T FIND COFFEE

THE SUN WENT DOWN WITH THE NOTE SHE LEFT

SAYING I COULD FIND HER AT THIS ADDRESS

IF I FINALLY DECIDED TO GIVE UP THE FIGHT

OF LIVING IN THE DARK AND CALLING IT THE LIGHT

IT’S BEEN HARD, AND IT’S BEEN DARK

BUT IT’S ALMOST AFTER MOON; THE SUN’S COMING SOON

I’M SITTING IN THE BACKSEAT OF A BLACK LIMOUSINE

THE DRIVER PROBABLY HAS A FACE BUT I CAN’T SEE

HE’S TALKING A LOT OF NOISE BUT HASN’T SAID A THING

AND I THINK WE’RE GOING SOMEWHERE BUT I CAN’T BE SURE

CAUSE AT THIS POINT THE WORLDS BECOME A SHAPELESS BLUR

SO I KICK THE SUNROOF OPEN AND THE DRIVER STARTS TO SHOUT

I BREATHE WITH MY LUNGS AND HOWL IT ALL OUT

IT’S BEEN HARD, AND IT’S BEEN DARK

BUT IT’S ALMOST AFTER MOON, ALMOST AFTER MOON

ALMOST AFTER MOON, ALMOST AFTER MOON

AND THE SUN IS COMING SOON

Otis Sang

I WAS BIGGER THAN I’LL EVER BE, IN MY MIND I WAS A KING

I TOUCHED HER IN TIME WITH THE TRUMPETS SWING

TAT TAT TRICKLIN’ DOWN WENT THE RAIN

WHEN OTIS SANG

A BLURRY BLUE LIGHT LIT THE PARKING LOT

WHERE I DROPPED MY DISGUISE KNOWING I WAS CAUGHT

AND I FOUND LOVE EXPECTING PAIN

WHEN OTIS SANG

THEN SHE STOOD TO GO, LEAVING TEARS ON MY CHEST

BUT I REACHED FOR HER AND TRIED A LITTLE TENDERNESS

SHE LAYED BACK DOWN AND STAYED

WHEN OTIS SANG
