Track Name: tamper-ment
what gives?
when i try to make myself clear
and send a few notes for you to hear
you dissappear ear-to-ear in a world
that unfurled leaves unwhirled your gaping heart

on pins and needles, shatters and breaks
like a hurried love scene on a second take
second date left the butterflies under your skin
slick smitty's let himself in but apart

from the start and the art
there's a mark on the soul, it's a hole that you're headed fast for
you can't take no more yet you still adore
so i unleash everything i had in store

and the floodgates pour and your heart stands torn
and we spill our guts right out on the floor
but that's when i swing and the mood ring sings
and i tell my tired sorry self


that it's not my place to tamper
no it ain't my place to tamper
no it's not my place to tamper
so why...
why... do i try


what now
i try to let myself by
get my fix up feeling all superfly
but who am i to say who i am today
or if you stay for a day what may or not

be can't explain why i say what i do
or i do what i say but it's not for a lay
but for a lady miss cady that i'm putting this out
why i shout what i doubt but you are not

free all i know is that i know nothing
but the fact of the matter is that that's still something
so we prop ourselves up with another crutch
it's ain't much but it's sutch that soon we're dining dutch

but then you see him once more and your heart stands torn
and you both spill your guts right out on the floor
that's when i find myself swingin' and the mood ring singin'
and i tell my tired sorry self


that it's not my place to tamper
no it ain't my place to tamper
no it's not my place to tamper
so why...
why... do i try


oh when i
hear you tell of how he gives you hell
my temperment flares and i wish i was there
to tell him where he can now find his air
and then take your hand and say how i care

because i'll never really know unless i try
and you're a heart-shaped box with a lullaby and even a
blind man could see that there's someting there
in this magical musical love affair


but it's not my place to tamper
no it ain't my place to tamper
no it's not my place to tamper
so why...
why...
but it's not my place to tamper
no it ain't my place to tamper
no it's not my place to tamper
so why...
why... why don't i try


because i'll never really know unless i try
and you're a heart-shaped box with a lullaby and even a
blind man could see that there's someting there
in this magical musical love affair
Track Name: It's Alright
i'm not sure just how i feel about you
i'm not sure about a lot of things
i'm not sure just what i want out of this
i'm not sure what you want out of me

maybe i thought you'd run back to him
maybe i thought i wasn't everything you see
maybe i thought i didn't trust you enough
maybe i thought that you didn't trust me

but now all i want is happiness
now there's nothing else but you in my sight
so screw everything else, the world can go to hell
as long as i end up with you, it's alright!



we've had some great times, and some not as good
life has been topsy turvy, it's true
now i feel the strain, and now i feel the pain
of having to be so far from you

when i get back, where will we be then?
when i get back, can we have some fun?
when i get back, what point will we be at?
when i get back, might it all be done?

cuz all i really want is some happiness
now there's nothing else but you in my sight
so screw everything else, the world can go to hell
as long as i end up with you, it's alright!



(hand clapping)



(solo)



it's alright
it'll be alright
now i can finally get to sleep
tonight



do i love you? i'm not really sure
but i've got a lot of good feelings, i know
you care as well, i've been told, i can tell,
but still we've really got a long way to go

but soon i can get that happiness
when i've got nothing but you in my sight
everything else has gone straight to hell
but since i'll end up with you, it's alright!

it's alright
it's alright
i know it'll be alright

it's alright
it's alright
i know it'll be alright

it's alright
it's alright
it's alright
every single thing will work out fine
it'll all be fine
yeah! yeah! i'm alright! alright!
it'll be alright!
Track Name: What's It Gonna Be (Miss Molly) [demo]
it's happy hour o'clock and yer out on the town
got yer boots all laced up and yer blouse hangin' down
another drink's on the table and ya bring it to yer lips
chug the whole bugger down cuz yer tired o' takin' sips
surrounded by yer friends, the whole lot feelin' jolly
it's all a pretty ready fit for a lassy named molly
and with the usual round of suitors, all a lady's delight
you can already tell it's gonna be a typical night

Six A.M. you wake up under the table
spent the last night porkin' in the backstreet stable
straight to yer left there's a slumberin' man
got yer vomit on his britches and your necklace in his hand
ya rise to yer feet and ya struggle to stand
make a short self pep-talk and a reprimand
because one of these days you'll hafta make a choice
and yer sick of seein' yer name in the Village Voice

so what's it gonna be, miss molly?
what's it gonna be, fairy folly?
what's it gonna be, miss molly?
shot of gin in my hand but you might just drink the bottle yourself

a day in the life of a young irishwoman
got a half dozen kids clinging vying for yer bosom
got the wash on the line but the line's a-comin' down
a mighty squalor's headin' over from the west side of town

you pull the young'ns inside and then ya brace for the worst
a mighty tempest's gone a-hungry and she's wettin' her thirst
but through the silt and the storm you stand firm your ground
because ya know just what'll happen if ya don't stick around

so what's it gonna be miss molly?
what's it gonna be, pretty polly?
what's it gonna be, miss molly?
got a gun in my hand but ya might just pull the trigger yerself

good golly miss molly there's a lecter in the ollie
got a fooner for a folly and a trailer on the lolly
call 'em back leutenent ollie there's a sniper on the trolley
and a jarvie in the holly and a latchky stikin' jolly
and there's a loli with a dolly and a trolley in a folly
but they all don't hold a candle to the beauty miss molly

a young man sits alone by himself
he reaches up and plucks a song off a shelf
you can see in his eyes that he's still just a lad
and yet you get a sense of all the good fun to be had

and like a true starving artist he's but bones and skin
but it don't stop him from composing just for you on a whim
you can tell that the tune is plucked straight from his heart
and so ya think you might just take his hand and give him a start

what's it gonna be miss molly?
what's it gonna be, fern gully?
what's it gonna be, miss molly?
cuz we'll soon be food for ferrets when the reaper comes a-calling!
what's it gonna be miss molly?
what's it gonna be, good golly?
what's it gonna be, miss molly?
got some questions in yer head but i might just know the answers myself...
Track Name: 1-900-ALYSIA!
i don't know what to do
i don't know if i'll get through
life's so hard and overrated
everything's so complicated
need something to tie me down and
keep me tethered to the ground

i'm calling 1-900-ALYSIA!

grab the phone, i'm dialin'
she picks up, i'm smilin'
talk for an hour, or just for a bit
it's just like a drug, don't think i can quit
she's the girl that's got me in a whirl
got that smile that drives me wild
happiness comes and happines goes
but throughout it all, she'll be there i know

i'm calling 1-900-ALYSIA!

whenever i'm feeling all alone,
i know who i can call on the phone!

stuck inside this twisted mixed-up life
there's one thing that helps me survive

but it's okay, cuz i know.... someday, someday...

i'm calling 1-900-ALYSIA!

whenever i'm feeling all alone,
i know who i can call on the phone!
Track Name: Logical Love
intro:
if i say that i love you
you always say you love me too
but when i say just how i feel
you say my thoughts have no appeal


you always say to just forget it
i feel these feelings all have merit
so to find out if this love is true
let's take a look at the logical view...


verse 1:
1 + 1 always equals 2
man + woman equals me + you
unless you're rounding up from 1.3
but you can't get partial people that easily

we're deeply bonded near-molecular force
tho we live separate lives, we're both on the same course
and while we live long distance, we're an atom split apart
an electron connection flows through both of our hearts

chorus 1:
perhaps you need a gentle shove
in the right direction and the joy thereof
so relax and feel the topical, logical love

verse 2:
we both live in an intellectual's world
i'm an ex-math whiz, you're a science genius girl
so our love shouldn't be such a paradox
just take that cat right out of the box

and if we put intelligence aside
yer a sexy hot babe, i'm just an average guy
but i have no qualms, no, that's just fine
cuz opposites attract, and i'm magnetized

chorus 2:
you know just what i'm thinking of
when i say we can't wait for word from above
so let's join in canonical angelical logical love


----------------------------------------
met a smart girl with a pretty face
at a boy scout camp, an unlikely place
got a number got a name
camp would never feel the same
it was a lengthy drive to see her smile
but it was worth it, every mile
a weekend in berne, take a chance
explode into a firey romance
worked a week in michigan
together, that's what i call a win-win
it seemed that everything was fine
but we were living fast on borrowed time
the strain of separation, she wanted to go
she said it was over while i said no
that's when i tried to kill myself...

...

um, yeah, about that...


so i gave her a pony
----------------------------------------


verse 3:
i know you've been hurt, i know i've done wrong
and a heart takes more to heal than just one song
but forget the science and the logic for once
and have a little bit of faith, and a buttload of trust!

chorus 3:
it's crunch time nao, remove the gloves
unchain the beasts, release the doves
time to join in technological logical love
(c'mon)
zoological logical love
(second chance, perhaps?)
methodical logical love
(maybe third? fourth?)
diabolical logical love
(c'mon, you know i'm a great guy)
anatomical logical love
(please?)
let's join in logical love
(for christsakes, i gave you a pony!)
let's join in logical love
(doesn't that mean anything?)

Track Name: Drama Queen
(verse 1:)
You're just a babe,
An unfueled flame
Crying for some help with life

A scar-torn face,
A hopeless case
Felt the pleasure of the knife

A broken home,
with love not known
Kin and friends make pain tonight

The tears they flow,
but they will slow
I can help you see the light

(pre-chorus 1:)
if you keep living,
i'll keep on giving...

(chorus:)
She's my little drama queen
Her life's so full of tragedy
Soap-opera scenes may come and go
But through it all I hope she'll know
My Love

(verse 2:)
The cuts and tears,
the pain you bear,
I can take it all away...

It hurts, I know,
But I love you so...
What else do I have to say?

(pre-chorus 2:)
just keep on breathing,
you'll keep recieving...

(chorus:)
She's my little drama queen
Her life's so full of tragedy
Soap-opera scenes may come and go
But through it all I hope she'll know
She's my little drama queen
A sweet young girl, a sweet sixteen
Her happiness may come and go
But through it all I hope she'll know

(bridge;)
My Love...
let it go to you
My Love...
let it burn through you
My Love..
you are all the makes my world
spin round and round
you're the joy i have found
you can make me feel
like it's all still real!

(pre-chorus 3:)
it keeps repeating,
but we're not retreating!


(chorus:)
She's my little drama queen
Her life's so full of tragedy
Soap-opera scenes may come and go
But through it all I hope she'll know
She's my little drama queen
A sweet young girl, a sweet sixteen
Her happiness may come and go
But through it all I hope she'll know

She's my little drama queen
Her life's so full of tragedy
Soap-opera scenes may come and go
But through it all I hope she'll know
She's my little drama queen
A better life I hope she'll see
When darkness flees and light shall show
And through it all I'm sure she'll know
My Love...
My Love!

verse 1a:

hello, my love, my friend,

Track Name: GET THE HELL AWAY FROM ME!!
what the goddam hell ever happened to us?
we lost the action, the passion, the heart and the trust
you walked away thinking it would be better for me
avoiding breaking my heart by setting me free


but what the hell were you thinking
cuz with you gone my heart's breaking
you stopped it way before it was time for you to go...
GET THE HELL AWAY FROM ME!!

you really do deserve a guy better than me
congrats to your new man is he PSYCHO LIKE MEEEEEE????
putting up with me must have been fucking hell
without me being around i bet you're feeling quite swell

now you can do all those things that i could not provide
so i'll just sit here and hate you just wishing you'd die
go out and live, go get drunk, stoned, laid, all that shit
i'm saying now i won't care, not even one little bit


but what the hell am i saying
cuz deep inside my heart's breaking
i'm trying to get over it, but i can't let go...
GET THE HELL AWAY FROM ME!!

i guess i'm lying, i'm telling myself i don't care
when i do, but the pain is just too hard to bear
so when your life goes to shit and you come crawling back, girl
i might be here for you then, but i can't say for sure


i wish it all could be again
i'm not that good at "just being friends"
it's one way or the other, it's better for you just to go...
GET THE HELL AWAY FROM ME...


how strange, your words and your actions don't seem to match up
i feel that you're a heartless bitch and i'm just some fuck-up
let's hope i live to see the day you change your mind
fuck this shit, i still love you, why can't we rewind?

good-bye...
good-bye!
good-bye..........
time to live, and time to die, i love you so much that all i can say is good-bye
Track Name: Us
sit, stare, be silent
no touch, we break quiet
you long to feel the pulse of my heart
why can't we be
our captors laugh with glee
our tortured selves now kept too far a-part

when we were young
our thoughts were overhung
with dreams and things all acted out too soon
we tried to live
and to each other give
the sea the sky the stars the sun and the moon


i want to be us
i want to see us
and can it be us
i want to be us
i want to be us
not referee us
i want to free us
i want to be us


torture, caged
mind is enraged
how can everyone be so cruel
i do my best for you
i make it clear what i will do
but no one lets us be
they are all fools!

reject, rebel
escape from this hell
together we are flying soooo high
fields, the plains
our life now is sane
we lie and count the clouds
up in the sky


i want to be us
i want to see us
and can it be us
i want to be us
i want to be us
not referee us
i want to free us
i want to be us

no matter what they say
or what they do
i always keep on coming back to you


no matter what they say
or what they do
i always keep on coming back to you
through thick and thin
we will stick through
i always keep on coming back to you

no matter what they say (what they say)
or what they do (what they do)
i always keep on coming back to you (always keep on coming back to you)
through thick and thin (thick and thin)
we will stick through (will stick through)
i always keep on coming back to you (always keep on coming back to you)

i want to be us
i want to see us
and can it be us
i want to be us
i want to be us
not referee us
i want to free us
i want to be us

i want to be us (what they say)
i want to see us (what they do)
and can it be us (always keep on coming)
i want to be us (back to you)
i want to be us (thick and thin)
not referee us (we'll stick through)
i want to free us (always keep on coming)
i want to be us (back to you)


(what they say)
(what they do)
(always keep on coming back to you)
(thick and thin)
(we'll stick through)
(always keep on coming back to you)

no matter what they say (what they say)
or what they do (what they do)
i always keep on coming back to you (always keep on coming back to you)
through thick and thin (thick and thin)
we will stick through (will stick through)
i always keep on coming back to you (always keep on coming back to you)


i want to be us
i want to see us
i want to free us
i want to be us
Track Name: And If I Bare My Heart...
hey love i wrote this song
to find what you've known all along
to try and find myself again

and there's a giant part of me
that stands in the way of all i see
that piece is more than just a friend

so just take a look my dear
in your father's funhouse mirror
what i see is what you'll find

cuz in case you haven't noticed
you've nearly always been the focus
of my loving heart and mind


girl please come back home
to the place where i belong
and the time has come to show
that you were wrong

girl you know it's right
there's a thing called destiny
let's not waste another night
time to join in harmony


you say you love me, and i love you too
but there's a message that isn't getting through
we've blocked a connection that runs deep

but know a love that once was lost
can now be found, and at no cost
the price of our love, it isn't steep


human nature, what it was
i know it was more than that because
something special is more than just a friend

feelings once felt never go away
they just hide b'hind human jars of clay
let's plunder our rupees of love and win


girl please come back home
to the place where i belong
and the time has come to show
that you were wrong

girl you know it's right
there's a thing called destiny
let's not waste another night
time to join in harmony


you say you don't love me it's not how you feel
i say that's crazy talk, this feeling's real
cuz deep down in our hearts we both know it's true
and the one who needs help unlocking it is you
there's a reason why i wrote this song
and i lied, i've known who i am all along
it's to show you the future is comin' up fast
and there's no need to be constrained by the past


the pain we both put each other through
i wasn't killing me, i was killing you
our perfect little oasis, our paradise
was quickly shattered by the point of a knife
could barely see your face the day after i died
a parting kiss to hush my childish cries
and with that kiss my world came to an end
that's when i knew that you could never love me again!

TRY
JUST TRY
TO BELIEVE
COME ON AND TRY
YOU GOTTA TRY

and never means forever, that's a mighty long time
but you can never say never
always a chance no matter how improbable

so i'm giving you my all
and i'll be here when you call
standing on the wall, i'm feeling ten feet tall
and i want it all - and i want you

it's like a drug i can't quit i can't get enough
can't stop trying and i can't quite get what i need
but the sun is shining up around the bend
where the line gets blurred between lover and friend

(i cannot wait)
(to see the day)
(you say my name)
(and smile and wave)
so i take one more step take another breath
another day alive, another day towards death
but it's all worth it when i see you smile
it gets me by for a little while

(i've got to hide)
(can't say goodbye)
(it breaks my mind)
(i cannot find)
gotta try
gotta strive
gotta work
gotta live
gotta love
gotta hope
got to give and give it all
give it all until there's nothing left
and then dig deep down and give a little more of my soul

(let's make a date)
(let's stay up late)
(let's have some fun)
(let's mug a nun)
to the girl
who is worthy
of all my pain
she brings a sunny sky
when i'm filled with rain
do anything to make her happy
tell a joke just to see that beautiful smile

(she makes me smile)
(she makes me laugh)
(she makes me feel like i'm a man)
she's just a dream come true, that girl, she is you
you know i know you don't agree, whatever
you're being stubborn cuz i know that you care
just relax and sit back and before you know it soon you'll be there

(the future's now)
(don't ask me how)
(ask chairman mao)
(a flying cow)
you'll be there and i will be too
together united unstoppable fighting the new tomorrow
the one with the robots
evil zombie robots
sent by dr. clown
the dread pirate roberts won't let us down

(when will i see)
(what's yet to be)
(my dreams will come)
(my will be done)
see the ninjas watch them go
wait you can't cuz your eyes are much to slow
but we know that we're winning from the number of corpses
with ninjato wounds wrapped in kunai with chain

(i just can't wait)
(to see your face)
(and i just hope)
(you're smiling)
a brighter future is nigh once the flying nuns die
they're just getting in our way
and we'll stand and rejoice and sing in one voice
once captain ninja-pirate saves the day

(you smile)
(you smile)
(and you smile)
(still you smile)
and you'll smile
and i'll smile
becuase you smiled
and you're smile's super-cute
and we'll take all of the aborted mutant zombie chicken fetuses
and throw them into the hudson bay yeah

(i love you and)
(you love me we're)
(one big happy)
(family)
and our lives will be wonderful
everything joyful no pain or suffering
and this beautiful future could all be yours
if you just say one thing -

(so smile...)
just say you love me...
(and smile...)

(i! love!)
(you!)
Track Name: someday (song for you)
another song for you, another lovesick tune
another empty beat
the chords are ringing true, the lyrics flowing through
down an empty street
like a beggar i stumble alone down this
broken dreary life
then like clockwork it's you once again
come to shine and be the light
so bright

you wipe away the tears, you calm my foolish fears
you offer hope and love
i fail to find a way, endearing words to say
that this just isn't enough
you say "that's all," you're off, on your way
off to live your separate life
and when you're gone i beg you to stay
because i need you through the night
i'm lonesome with fright

someday i'll find those words that elude me
someday i know that i'll get things right
someday i'll set things as they should be
someday i won't be alone in the night

i feel i'm stuck inside, i'm trapped within my mind
i can't connect to you
i curse the painted walls, i pace the empty halls
but there's no breaking through
i ramble on about such foolish words
as "love" and "hope"
but i can see you fading away
at the cut end of my rope

you're so extraordinary, nothing ordinary
yer mind is blissed
so sharp, so literary, massive coronary
if i made the list
do anything to get to you
steal a car, a bus, a plane
it just makes sense, yet i feel the fool
when your look drives me insane
it's given me pain

someday i'll find those words that elude me
someday i know that i'll get things right
someday i'll set things as they should be
someday i won't be alone in the night

someday i know that your love will find me
someday we'll paint camp tamarack red
someday you'll smile just as i say "finally!"
someday i'll have you before i'm dead

and i don't think that you're hoping i die soon...

and thus ends another song for you
Track Name: Wishful Thinking
Hello there, did you miss me? Well,
I surely missed you, you've been silent,
Silent as the lambs once
the wolves have had their way with them

But you know that feeling,
you know it all too well, because that feeling
and a certain attitude
have put you in your own private hell

Now I wish I could help, but just like you told me,
there's a thing called distance
When I offered my hand to do anything I could
You just dismissed it

But this doesn't change the way I feel at all
not one little bit
Cuz I've made up my mind to continue loving you
Even when you don't give a shit, now

I know you know deep in your heart
I'm the best thing that you'll ever/never have
So if I'm the king of self-destruction
be my queen, it's destiny!

So just picture yerself a little house
in the trees or in the rocks
And you and me out front sitting on a swing
watching a child learn to walk!

But you disowned that dream so easily
And turned off pleasant thought
And put on a kettle of seperation
Now it's steaming and boiling hot!

So just let it all rain down on me
Until I'm covered in mud
But when push comes to shove, I'm telling you girl,
Before this is over, there's gonna be blood!

Blood in the desert, blood in the streets
Blood in your heart and blood in your veins
Blood that stings with the bitter thought
Of all the things that you never could change

Cuz you can't change, No you can't,
Unless you want to, but you won't comprimise
But that's why I feel the way I do
When I see that fire burning when I look into your eyes

Well I would if I could but I can't so I don't
want to pain my heart anymore with dreams
But you're all that I want and all that I see
When I look outside at that crazy beautiful world of ours

With the leaves on the trees turning colors
Another warm sunny day
And the birds scream at me to go to Arizona
so I can finally be with you!



So when the war is finally over and the day is done
I want you there standing at my side as one
And as we stand together on the rubble you look up at my face
And you smile. And that one little smile makes the whole world a better place
Because your radiance shines with a brilliant glow
even in these darkest of hours
As mankind stands on the verge of extinction
thanks to bitterness and hatred amongst the world's powers
But with you there, I know I can face the apacolypse
your spunky attitude slices through the pestillence & greed
Like a hot knife through bread, scorching a trail towards
a brighter tomorrow for all the children of the world
But that's just wishful thinking, I'm just a foolish dreamer
I'm foolish to feel the way that I do and it's foolish to think this could ever work out
And it's foolish to think we could ever be together
and it's foolish to think we could ever meet eachother
and it's foolish to feel so much for someone so far away
and it's foolish to like someone that's so out of my range
And it's foolish to love and it's foolish to care
and it's foolish to want and it's foolish to need
and it's foolish to think that I'll ever fuck you on all fours
in our own shitty bed in our own shitty apartment
But I'm a foolish sort of guy! And I still believe
that all of these dreams will someday come true!
And until that day comes I'll just sit here alone
and hold you in my heart while I wait like a stone!
A stones throw away from a rock fight, but not tonight!
No, not ever! Things are gonna change! But I
can dream, can't I? Mr. King, I too have a
dream! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
Mr. Bungle, get off that carosel! get down from
your high horse! You guys played your last when the
peppers kicked your ass! Tell My Love Now, what class!
Tell Me Baby, you're growin' up fast!
But this constant frustration alienation californication
spaceman station across the nation has killed us all
at last! Broken down at the dead disco now
that Florida's sunk and all has come to pass!
But although all the great ships have sunk and the
fires of the ocean burn high into the sky,
through the fire and the flames and the smoke on the water,
one sound rings true! That sound is the beating of the
DRUMS!!! Always pounding, always sounding, never ceasing
to beat! The drums of war! Dr. Pepper, could you make
them stop?!?! As we march to the beat of a different
drum, march to drums of the damned
as we come! We come marching through the
bombed-out ruins of the village square!
The smell of ash, the sound of music, the feeling of change
is in the air! Because the future is soon and the future is
now! And we'll march this black parade and
follow old glory into a new day! And as I
smile and stare up at that red, white, & blue,
I close my eyes, and all I can think of...

...is you. It's true... you're all I can think of...
