Slither

What ever it is you need
That's inside of me
What ever you think you see
I swear I see it too
Where ever you want me to go
I'm gone
What ever it is you need
It's inside of me

Bottomfeeder

You stand before me now, like a vision
Even you don't know the strength of your beauty
And I know by now you're drunk
But I have learned just to take
What I'm given

I never said I was a gentleman
Cause I've put away those childish things
Let's spend some time in the sack
See what tomorrow brings

The warmth of your disposition
Only lets me know, all my lies
Have been good tonight

I never said I was a gentleman
Cause I've put away those childish things
Let's spend some time in the sack
See what tomorrow brings

Superslide

When you cross the black sky
With one place in your head
Second star on the right
Straight on till morning
Careful what you might find
Once you lose the coastline
You better take an extra jacket
Cause the place has changed

Superslide
Right on in
Superslide
I'm here again

A little while ago
I had a funny feeling
The captain's hook is so sharp
And Peter Pan's been drinking
If Edgar Allan Poe
Could get a hold of the pixie dust
A monster in the harbor
And crocodiles for each of us

Superslide
Right on in
Superslide
I'm here again

Not too many ships come round here no more
Since Peter Pan found out his little Wendy was a common whore

Easily Maim The Lion

I've spent time roaming the plains
There's one thing you'll never see on T.V.
Even the slightest kick
From even the slightest bird
Can easily maim the lion

And maybe that's just the same for you and me
Even the big cats, they don't eat for free
And if on the surface, I come off big and strong
Nobody could deny that you crippled me

Flashing fangs make you think that he is fine
But even a king is only king for a little time
So even the shortest hour
From even the shortest day
Can easily maim the lion (in that way)

And maybe that's just the same for you and me
Even the big cats, they don't eat for free
And if on the surface, I come off big and strong
Nobody could deny that you crippled me


(every little step we take is one step closer to the groundÉ)

Nothing's Too High

When you lay down in your bed tonight
Try to think of pretty things
When the vampire comes a-calling
Hold your ears against the song he sings

Nothing's too high, nothing's too hard
Let me get my fingers on you

When the needle starts to scratchin on your door
This is one sound you must learn to ignore
Lay down in it
You deserve every little bed sore

Nothing's too high, nothing's too hard
Let me get my fingers on you

Lifter

Lifter find me guilty
I've got my head down
When you sail into me
Change me all around

Every single word that's falling from your mouth is good now
Higher than a bird can fly I'm gonna get there
Once upon a time a heavy hearted man was walking
Stand among the stones so he could worship what he wants
Now he prays to lifter

Use A Gun

I've never seen no one crying
Quite as hard as she
I've never seen no one suffer
Quite so tenderly
I've never known lips to quiver
I've never seen
Whatever you've done to that girl
It wasn't clean

You might as well have used a gun
There's no coming back from where you put that girl
Now look at the thing you've done
You might as well have used a gun

Walk out underneath the clouds
She will write it down
Walk out underneath the clouds
In her wedding gown
She may put on a face
But you know it's only makeup
She can't hide the swelling

You might as well have used a gun
There's no coming back from where you put that girl
Now look at the thing you've done
You might as well have used a gun

Everything will be alright
If she takes another pill tonight
Everything will be OK
One of these will give her color, from a field of black and gray

Soak It Up

As far as I can tell
This is all we get
Ain't no heaven and there ain't no hell
As far as I can tell
I know you got plans
For when this one is through
I know what I will do

Soak it up like a sponge

I'm not trying to bite the hand of god
I'm not trying to tell the devil yes
I'm just trying to love everything we've got
I ain't been promised the rest
So I will

Soak it up like a sponge

If you pray hard enough
Maybe you can get on
But if the whole thing's a bluff
And this is where you belong
Then this is where you belong

Bait

Starlight in her eyes, just like being shown a vision
And while she shines, I can see 
just what is wrong and just what is right with me

It's time for me to take the bait and make a run
Pay out the line and wait for the jerk
Hook in my mouth and here comes the sun
A little sting but I ain't really hurt

I'll say goodbye to rusting ships and swim to the surface, willing
And trade my scales for finger tips
Submit to the sky

I'll fill my lungs and let them burn for her
I'll walk on land, hand in hand with her

Flowerhead

Flowerhead spin around crazy
But there's direction in your footprints
Go ahead, down to the water
To stand alone against the hot wind, once again

Who are you waiting for
And when will he come round?

Sleepyhead, lying in a big bed
Almost a universe across
Someday, there will come another
To give you back what you have lost

Who are you waiting for
And when will he come round?

Seems to me, very little romance
Gets through the winter with its petals
Remember me, kind of like a slow dance
A conch-shell whisper,
but we were miles from any ocean

I know the dream sounds good in your head
Forget about all the promises we said

Oil

I'm sorry, I'll wait awhile
You should be numb by now
The scotch and water smile
Is coming on your face,
like oil

A spider, and you're the fly
It's time for us to dance
I'll place you on satin sheets
And cover you with oil

And after the dance be done
You'll look a little pale
We will whisper the sweetest lies
And cover them with oil

Over and over I study your face in the light
Cause I may never be as close as I am tonight
Like oil

Tasty

Did you forget where you're going?
I know how you feel
That woman's leaving you showing
A bit more than you care to reveal
Welcome back to your good friends
Depression and fear
Not quite as cozy as she was
But you're going to like it here

Nothing's good until you're down and out
Then everything's tasty
Stick your tongue into the gutter
Everything's tasty

It's supposed to be easy, this many times around
But so many tear drops, that's what I've found
So I take it with pain,
take it for pain,
take it with pain

Nothing's good until you're down and out
Then everything's tasty
Stick your tongue into the gutter
Everything's tasty

Happy As Clams

Baby let's get out of this place
Cause every one we knew has gone
Down into the cold sand we could shove
I've been getting nothing but tired
Down through the years
Let's leave all the troubles in the world
To the things that swim above

Sing for me like you used to
Just one more time
And I will wish the sunshine and the wind goodbye
Stretch me out across the sand
Let me stare into a blue sky
Just to catch a glimpse of a real cloud
Not the kind hanging round my eye

And let our shells be thick
To keep out the worry and the news
Bury yourself quick
And you may never hear the blues
