Monarchy of Roses

The crimson tide is flowing thru
Your fingers as you sleep
The promise of a clean regime
Are promises we keep

Do you like it rough I ask
And are you up to task
The calicos of Pettibon
Where cultures come to clash

Several of my best friends wear
The colors of the crown
Mary wants to build it up

And Sherri wants to tear it all back down girl
The savior of your light

The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses

The cross between my former queen
Her legendary stare
The holy tears of Ireland
A lovely cross to bear

Several of my best friends know
The secrets of this town
Mary wants to raise it up
And Sherri wants to spin it all around girl
The sailors of the night
The monarchy of roses
The monarchy of roses tonight

Hey
We all want the rose you know
Hey
Show us love before you go
Say I will then say I want to
The story knows that I will never taunt you
Hey
We all want the rose you know
Hey
Show us love before you go
Say I will then say I want to
They story knows that I will always haunt you


Factory of Faith

All my life I was swinging for the fence,
I was looking for the triple,
Never playing good defence

Gunnin' for the glitter,
Every hot and heavy hitter,
She was never really there so I couldn't really get her

I said
Factually I, I'm just a piece of it
Factually I, the very least of it

Piece of work, I was really quite a jerk
Keeping score is such a bore, a busy mind can go bazerk
Oh
Feast on this, I was fishing for a hook
So I took a little trip, and I opened up the book

I said
Factually I, I'm just a piece of it
Factually I, the very least of it
Factually I, its just a medicine
Make you wanna cry, why don't they let us in?

Be my wife, I think you're right that we should mate
Tell your friends, I gotta factory of faith
Late last night, I had a dream that it was great
Tell your friends, I gotta factory of faith
I got a factory of....

Crack your whip, she's confessing from the hip
She was good at getting there, but not as much for round-trip
Oh, all this time, I was searching for a dream
I was living in and out of every other sex machine

I said
Factually I, I'm just a piece of it
Factually I, the very least of it
Factually I, it's just a medicine
Makes you wanna cry, why don't they let us in?

Be my wife, I think your right that we should mate
Tell your friends, I gotta factory of faith
Late last night, I had a dream that it was great
Tell your friends, I gotta factory of faith
I got a factory of....

Be my wife, I think you're right that we should mate
Tell your friends, I gotta factory of faith
Late last night, I had a dream that it was great
Tell your friends, I gotta factory of faith
I got a factory of...
Faith
And love
And luh-oooh-uh-ooh-uhh-ooh-uh-ooh-ove


Brendan's Death Song

Live and die before I get it done,
will you decide.
I'll take my words and turn them into sounds,
it will survive.
Because a long time ago, 
I knew not to deprive.

It's safe out there and now you're everywhere, just like the sky.
And you are love,you are the love supreme, you are the rye.
And when you hear this,
You know its your jam, it's your goodbye.

Chorus

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the drummer drums,
It's gonna play my song,
to carry me along.

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the Boatman comes to ferry me away,
to where we all belong.

We your cost,
when we were feeling lost,
It's just the time.
Kateri cried, the day her lover died,
she recognized.
Because ya gave her,
a life of real love, it's no surprise.

The night's are long, but the years are short,
When you're alive.
Way back when, will never be again,
it was a time.
It's gonna catch you, so glad I met you, to walk a line.

Chorus

Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone.
And when the drummer drums, he's gonna play my song, to carry me along.

Like I said you know I'm almost dead
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the boatman comes to fairy me away, to where we all belong.

Come get me!
Hey! Hey!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
And when the drummer drums,
its gonna play my song,
to carry me along.

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
And when the boatman comes to fairy me away,
to where we all belong.

Then we live,
so every time you die,
he's in the revert sky.
Lay me down,
so when it's time to leave,
another sun will rise.

I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

And when the drummer drums,
its gonna play my song,
to carry me along.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
You know I'm almost gone.
(I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)
And when the boatman comes to fairy me away,
to where we all belong.
(I said yeah!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)

Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.
Like I said you know I'm almost dead,
you know I'm almost gone.


Ethiopia

Annie Wants a Baby

Lucy Reibart,
she's a friend of mine.
Later she'll go, 
back and redefine the line.
It's getting longer all the time.
Oh yeah
Can't get sunshine,
she likes the taste of it.
She had a goldmine,
but then she wasted it away.
You should have seen her yesterday.
Oh yeah

(Chorus 1)
Send along the way,
Nothing stops ?yay?
Sugar Daddy,
loves her madly.
Cosmo ?Shiva 
God oh made you a believer.
I don't need to tend her,
why do I believe you?

Annie wants a baby now
Annie wants a baby any way she can.

Missing pieces, she's got a lot of em.
Time decreases, I wish I thought of 'em before.
Before it's time to close the store.
Oh yeah

Installation,
a lonely sink of fame.
Some liberation,
the only seed we ever came.
I wanna help you but I can't.

No, No

Send along the way
Nothing stops yay?
Sugar Daddy, loves her madly.
Lover Kiva
God uh made you a believer.
Be our soldier,

It's time to re-design the sign.
Oh yeah
Send along the way


Look Around

Woo!
Stiff club, its my nature,
custom love is the nomenclature.
Turn down mass confusion,
hit the road because we just keep cruisin'.
Double my fun, double my vision,
long hard look at my last decision.
Hustle here, hustle there,
hustle me bitch and you best beware.

It's emotional and I told you so,
but you had to know so I told you.
Soft walk to horizon,
One big crash that no one dies in.
This for the folks in Pay-it-ville,
It'll come true if you say it will.
Chorus

Look around
Look around
Look around
All around
All around

It's emotional and I told you so,
but you had to know so I told you.
Please don't look right through me,
hurts my heart when you do that to me.
Street lights out my window,
City may breeze gonna stroke my skin though.
Just a lot of words on an old brick wall,
Rob a lot of banks, got a petty ?greeseball?
Put my peg into your square,
Run around like we just don't care.
Chorus 

Look around
Look around
Look around
All around
All around 

Oh yeah ahh
Woo!!

Move it ah gotta get ya,
wanna getcha
Move it ah gotta get ya,
gonna getcha

Look around
Look around
Look around
All around
All around
Oh yeah ahh

Did I Let You Know

I'm coming for ya 'cause,'cause I adore ya and,
I like to get inside your mass production.
This indecision has,
has got me cringing well,
I can't resist the smell of your seduction.

Did I let you know?
Would you like to go?
Unwrap the package with how much persuasion?
Did I let you know?
Would you like to go?
I wanna dance to every days' occasion.

(Chorus)
This I know! Yeah this I know!
(Take me home well take me home)
This I know, we're not alone.
(Take me home, take me home)

When we envision a,
lack of division and,
the planet does another revolution.
The day I blew on ya,
you said I grew on ya,
turns out that we are all the one solution.
Go!

(Trumpet Solo)
Ha ha!

I'm coming at you well,

This I know, we're not alone.

I liked you cheeky well,
so mose and peaky and,
I think the world could use a clear connection.

Goodbye Hooray

Woop Woop! Ha

Junior paints that old cafe,
he's gotta change those girls around.
Westbound drunk with lots to say,
but he never makes a sound.
Hustlers get what they deserve,
but its always half the date.
Good things come to those who wait,
like an expiration date.

(Chorus)
See you around, I'll see you around
I'll play all night, hey don't get uptight.
I lead all your mind games astray.
Well I'll see you around, I'll see you around,
I'll play all night, hey don't get uptight.
See you, so long, goodbye, hooray.
Awww

Curb your tongue oh scallywag,
because you got no flag to wave.
Save your breath for the black and white,
every dog will have its day.

(Chorus)
See you around, I'll see you around
I'll play all night, hey don't get uptight.
I lead all your mind games astray.
Well I'll see you around, I'll see you around,
I'll play all night, hey don't get uptight.
See you, so long, goodbye, hooray.

Well I'll see you around, I'll see you arrounund!

(Bass Solo)

Aw yeah
Aw yeah
Aw yeah

(Chorus)
I'll see you around, I'll see you around,
I'll play all night, hey don't get uptight.
I lead all your mind games astray.
Well I'll see you around, I'll see you around,
I'll play all night, hey don't get uptight.
See you, so long, goodbye, hooray.

Well I'll see you around, I'll see you around,
I'll see you around, I'll see you around,
I'll see you around.
Goodbye and Hooray

Well I'll see you around, I'll see you around 


Happiness Loves Company

Stop marching 'cause you think you shot to number one,
Counting days and skipping your stones into the sun.
Overrated on the form it goes to where you turn,

Living the dream of a meteorite!

We all learn and struggle with some loneliness.
A tender mess for everyone I guess.
I guess.

Half blinded, 
I'm reminded how to find myself
Nickel and dime I think,
it's time to play some musical chairs.
Dirty laundry, what a wandering,
ask her if she cares.

Stop jumping 'cause we got something to say, yeah

Police Station

I saw you at the police station and it breaks my heart to say.
Your eyes had wandered off to something distant, cold and grey.
I guess you didn't see it coming, 
someone's gotten used to slumming.
Dreaming of the golden years,
I see you had to change careers.
Far away, but we both know its somewhere.

I saw you on the back page of some pre press yesterday.
The drip wood in your eyes had nothing short of love for pain.
I know you from another picture,
of someone with the most convictions.
We used to read the funny papers,
fooled around and pulled some capers.
Not today, send a message to her.
A message that I'm coming, coming to pursue her.

(Chorus 1)
Tell your country I, rest my face on your bed.
I got you ten times over, I'll chase you down 'til you're dead.

I saw you on a tv station and it made me wanna pray.
An empty shell of loveliness is now dusted with decay.
What happened to the funny paper?
Smiling was your money maker.
Someone oughta situate her,
find a way to educate her.
All the way, time to come and find you.
You can't hide from me girl, so never mind what I do.

(Chorus 2)
Tell your country I, rest my face on your bed.
I bet my sovereign country and I, left it all for your head.

I saw you in the church and there was no time to exchange.
You were getting married and it felt so very strange.
I guess I didn't see it coming,
now I guess it's me who's bumming.
Dreaming of the golden years,
you and I were mixing tears.
Not today, not for me but someone.
Never could get used to, so now I will refuse to.

(Chorus 2)
Tell your country I, rest my face on your bed.
I bet my sovereign country and I, left it all for your head

I got my best foot forward and I'll chase you down 'til you're dead.


Even You Brutus?

God is good and fate is great,
when it feels so strong it's hard to wait.
You never know how it might unfold,
hearts to break and bodies to hold.
Time will tell but it never gets old.
Like I told you I'm in for the long long.

Had to of been one of those things that took place in outer space.
A match made in heaven, not a scratch on her face.
Angels must have smoked some dust,
singing songs about "In God We Trust".
Something sly, but this is a must.

Like I told you there's a time for finding out.

Ahh people try to tell me what not to do,
"You shouldn't make it with a younger girl." and
Too many chances for the foot to drop,
I tried to tell 'em that I found a pearl, well...

Like I told you be careful what you're asking for.

Chorus
This is to Brutus
Gotta mess of a better hell. Oww
This is to Judas!
Even you never had my back.

She was the cutest thing that I ever did see.
A drink in her hand and I don't mean tea.
She was with a dude, but I just didn't care.
I had to find out, these moments are rare.
And Stevie says, "All is fair."

Like I told you there is something for everyone.

Well I guess I never told you some things that I really, really wanted to say.
Did I do everything I could do, or did the mice just need to play?

Like I told you there's more than meets the eye.

(Chorus)
This is to Brutus!
Gotta mess of a better hell. Ow!
This is to Judas!
Even you never had my back.

I'm not trying to point fingers at you, and I'm not trying to lay any blame.
But when it comes to the punishment, girl you know how to bring the pain.

Like I told you I'd do it all again.

This is to Brutus!
I gotta mess of a better hell. Ow!
This is to Judas!
Even you never had my back.

Come on

This is to Brutus!
There's a jury to the woman's lap. Ow!
This is to Judas!
Even you never had my back
