2:00PM

You know sometimes I sit at home, you know,
and I watch T.V. and I wonder what it would be like
to live someplace like, you know, the Cosby show,
Ozzie and Harriet, you know, where
cops come and got your cat outta the tree
all your friends died of old age,
But you see, I live in South Central Los Angeles and unfortunately...
SHIT AIN'T LIKE THAT! IT'S REAL FUCKED UP!

Goddamn what a brother gotta do
to get a message through
to the red, white and blue?
What I gotta die
before you realize
I was a brother with open eyes?
The world's insane
while you drink champagne
and I'm livin' in black rain.
You try to ban the A.K.,
I got ten of 'em stashed
with a case of hand grenades.

Tell us what to do... Fuck you!
Tell us what to do... Fuck you!
Tell us what to do... Fuck you!
Tell us what to do... Fuck you!

You know what you'd do
if a kid got killed on the way to school
or a cop shot your kid in the backyard.
Shit would hit the fan, motherfucker
and it would hit real hard.
I hear it every night, another gunfight,
the tension mounts,
on with the Body Count.

Yo, Beatmaster "V", take these motherfuckers
to South Central.

Ha ha.
Yeah
Fuck that.

I hear it every night,
another gunfight,
the tension mounts,
on with the Body Count.

Last weekend thirty-seven kids killed in gang warfare,
in my backyard.

No!
No!
No!

Yo, Ernie C., take these motherfuckers home.

Yeah.

Yeah, we in the house, Body Count fools, 1991 motherfuckers.

I hear it every night,
another gunfight,
the tension mounts,

on with the Body Count.

Goddamn what a brother gotta do
to get a message through
to the red, white and you?
What I gotta die before you realize
I was a nigga with open eyes?
The world's insane
while you drink champagne
and I'm livin' in black rain,
don't you hear the guns
you stupid, dumb, dick suckin', bum politicians.

Tell us what to do... Fuck you!
Tell us what to do... Fuck you!
The tension mounts...

Starry
starry night
paint your palette blue and grey

look out on a summer's day
with eyes that know the
darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
sketch the trees and the daffodils

catch the breeze and the winter chills

in colors on the snowy linen land.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they did not know how

perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry
starry night
flaming flo'rs that brightly blaze

swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in
Vincent's eyes of China blue.
Colors changing hue
morning fields of amber grain

weathered faces lined in pain
are soothed beneath the artist's
loving hand.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you
but still your love was true

and when no hope was left in sight on that starry
starry night.
You took your life
as lovers often do;
But I could have told you
Vincent
this world was never
meant for one
as beautiful as you.

Starry
starry night
portraits hung in empty halls

frameless heads on nameless walls
with eyes
that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the stranger that you've met

the ragged men in ragged clothes

the silver thorn of bloddy rose
lie crushed and broken
on the virgin snow.
And now I think I know what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they're not
list'ning still
perhaps they never will.

2:41AM - no more i love yous

I used to be a lunatic from the gracious days
I used to feel woebegone and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed for you to see

Oh, but now

I don't find myself bouncing home
Whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry

No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more i love you's changes are shifting
Outside the words

No one ever speaks about the monsters

I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire, despair, desire
So many monsters

No more i love you's
The language is leaving me
No more i love you's
The language is leaving me in silence
No more i love you's
Changes are shifting outside the words

And people are being real crazy
And you know what mommy?
Everybody was being real crazy
And the monsters are crazy.
There are monsters outside

Left for dead, misunderstood. (back for more)

But you... (back for more)
Always came back for more...

4:14PM

I woke up this mornin' with the sundown shinin' in
I found my mind in a brown paper bag within
I tripped on a cloud and fell-a eight miles high
I tore my mind on a jagged sky
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(Yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
I watched myself crawlin' out as I was a-crawlin' in
I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
I saw so much I broke my mind
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(Yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

Someone painted "April Fool" in big black letters on a "Dead End" sign
I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind
Eight miles outta Memphis and I got no spare
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

I said I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
Yeah yeah oh-yeah

Time
Has coloured in
The black and white
Of your sin
So burn
Burn the flag
Rip it up
Bury the Rags

But I will find you still
Move in for the kill
You cut her hair

So live
Live long
See her face
In everyone
And turn
Turn the page
Start again
Change your name

But I will find you still
Move in for the kill
You cut her hair
You cut her hair
You cut her hair

4:13AM - its been a while

I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track (Thunder)

And I knew there was no turning back (Thunder)
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do (Thunder)
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you (Thunder)

Sound of the drums
Beatin' in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You've been - thunderstruck

Went down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the town
Went through to Texas, yeah Texas
And we had some fun
We met some girls
Some dancers who gave a good time
Broke all the rules, played all the fools
Yeah, yeah, they, they, they blew our minds

I was shakin' at the knees
Could I come again please?
Yeah the ladies were too kind
You've been - thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck

Oh, thunderstruck

9:17AM - Assemblage 23

It never felt so real
Never so visceral
But now it's all too clear
And all too typical

You're left with nothing
And it's all your fault
Relations cease
And emotions halt

Did you think the things you said
Wouldn't get back to me?
That I'd fall and disperse
Beneath you misery

I won't waste my time
You can suffer alone
Crying your shrill litany
In endless drones

Rain down
Tears of regret
You haven't seen the worst of it yet
Your name
A foul epithet
Never forgive... never forget

I offered you something
You can never regain
But now all I can offer you
is total disdain

And this is how you pay me back
for all those times
I listened to you
and forgave all your crimes

If lies about me
Are the best you can do
I guess I must've
Overestimated you

Paint cruelty on me
But its all the same
No one believes someone
In your mindframe

Rain down
Tears of regret
You haven't seen the worst of it yet
Your name
A foul epithet
Never forgive... never forget

The light of day
Was never kind to you
But the darkness is worse
When the day is through

Time to reflect
On all your misdeeds
And sob your sorry self
To sleep

Rain down
Tears of regret
You haven't seen the worst of it yet
Your name
A foul epithet
Never forgive... never forget

Current mood: aggravated

Stranger than kindness
Bottled light from hotels
Spilling everything
Wet hand from the volcano
Sobers your skin
Stranger than Kindness
You caress yourself
And grind my soft cold bones below
Your map of desire
Burned in your flesh
Even a fool can come
A strange lit stair
And find a rope hanging there
Stranger than kindness
Keys rain like heaven's hair
There is no home there is no bread
We sit at the gate and scratch
The gaunt fruit of passion
Dies in the light
Stranger than kindness
Your sleeping hands journey
The loiter
Stranger than kindness
You hold me so carelessy close
Tell me I'm dirty
I'm a stranger to kindness

Get my money back, get my bail
Put me, baby, in the county jail
Do my time, Lord and I won't tell
and everybody, everybody going to hell
Pick back my fat, skin my bones
Thirty-two teeth cracked on the stones
Come on, Jesus, bring us home
I ain't done nothing but love

Woah - I ain't done nothing but
Woah - Hey Love

Oh, hands are calling the maker
Dirty with the salt from the undertaker
Damn, I hear John the Revelator
Momma's in the kitchen dancing and singing

Woah - Momma put (a rood) on
Woah - Momma put (a rood) on

Get my money back, I paid my bail
Put me baby, put me baby, in the county jail
Doing my time, Love, and I won't tell
Everybody going to hell
Paid back my fare, skinned my bones
Yeah, I did that, throwing stones
Come on Jesus, bring us home
I done nothing but love

Yeah I hear him coming down the hall
With a tip-tap high-clap voodoo doll
Congo bongo blood lust song
White witch beating on a tree trunk gong
It's a boom-clap boom-clap on my door
Click the key before there's more

Woah~ I ain't done nothing but
Woah~ Hey Love

Oh, hands are calling the maker
Dirty with the salt from the undertaker
Damn, I hear John the Revelator
Momma's in the kitchen dancing and singing
Ain't done nothing but...

7:14PM - Texas Midnight Radio

Why I was just a stranger
There in Travis county
I’d known not a soul
So glad that you found me
It was a lazy summer
The heat heavy like lead
And you played the murder record
And we laid upon your bed
Then wiled around the lake
And underneath the bridge
We exchanged loving looks
And books that we’d read

I hold those days safe
I take them here I go
Somewhere into dreams
With other lonely things
With them I know I belong
Because I have always been a drifter
And a seeker all my life
Oh I never sought to see so much
That I don’t see now what I leave behind
Oh no

Far north from San Antone
Approach Wichita Falls
Texas midnight radio
Played a murder song
Oh, I held my heart
And I choked while I steer
To come so far and to give and to give
To watch it now disappear
Well loneliness will bleed you
And make you drift and stray
But it was that very loneliness
That made our hearts first meet

When I was just a stranger
There in Travis county
I’d known not a soul
So glad that you found me
So glad, So glad.

Last night a deejay saved my life
Last night a deejay saved my life, yeah
‘Cause I was sittin’ there bored to death
And in just one breathe he said
“You got get up, you got get up, you got get down girl”
You know you drive me crazy, baby
You got me turnin’ to another man

Called you on the phone no one’s home
Baby, why you leave me all alone
And if it wasn’t for the music
I don’t know what I’d do, yeah

Last night a deejay saved my life
Last night a deejay saved my life from a broken heart
Last night a deejay saved my life
Last night a deejay saved my life with a song
You know I hopped into my car, didn’t get very far, no
Because I had you on my mind, why be so unkind
You got your women all around, all around this town
But I was trapped in love with you and I didn’t know what to do
But when I turned on my radio
I found out all I needed to know
Check it out
Last night a deejay saved my live
Last night a deejay saved my life from a broken heart
Last night a deejay saved my life
Last night a deejay saved my life with a song

Last night a deejay saved my life
Last night a deejay saved my life from a broken heart
Last night a deejay saved my life
Last night a deejay saved my life with a song
Hey, listen up to your local deejay
You better hear what he’s got to say

There’s not a problem that I can’t fix
‘Cause I can do it in the mix
And if your man gives you trouble
Just move out on a double
And you don’t let it trouble your brain
‘Cause away goes trouble down the drain
Said away goes trouble down the drain

Well, alright

Dub time

Last night a deejay saved my life

There’s not a problem that I can’t fix
‘Cause I can do it in the mix
‘Cause I can do it in the mix
In the mix, in the mix, in the mix, in the mix
In the mix, in the mix, in the mix, in the mix
In the mix, in the mix

wherever I go
I take a little piece of you
I collect
I reject
photographs I took of you

the towns I passed through
so many faces
so many places
I have got to have a memory
I have never been there
I have never had you

I can't remember
give me a reminder
I collect
I reject

memorabilia
(now girl... only it's flavor... bow down here)

keychains and snowstorms
the taste of your sweat
the look in your eye
I have been inside you
I know what it feels like
(wet as it is... the whiter the honey)
I collect
I reject

memorabilia
(goodies come in here all day)

give me a reminder
I can't remember
I collect
I reject

7:52PM

Well they call me William the Pleaser
I sold opium fireworks and lead
now I'm telling my troubles to strangers
when the shadows get long I'll be dead

now her hair was as black as a bucket of tar
her skin as white as a cuttlefish bone
I left Texas to follow Lucinda
Now I'll never see heaven or home

I made a wish on a sliver of moonlight
a sly grin and a bowl full of stars
like a kid who captures a firefly
and leaves it only to die in the jar

as I kick at the clouds at my hanging
as I swing out over the crowd
I will search every face for Lucinda's
and she will go off with me down to hell

I thought I'd broke loose of Lucinda
the rain returned and so did the wind
I cast this burden on the god that is within me
and I'll leave this old world and go free

the devil dances inside empty pockets
but she never wanted money or pearls
no that wasn't enough for Lucinda
she wasn't that kind of girl

now I've fallen from grace for Lucinda
whoever thought that hell he'd so low
I did well for an old tin can sailor
but she wanted the bell in my soul

I've spoken the god on the mountain
I've swam in the Irish sea
I ate fire and drank from the Ganges
I'll beg there for mercy for me

I thought I'd broke loose from Lucinda
the rain returned and so did the wind
I was standing outside the Whitehorse
oh but I was afraid to go in

I heard someone pull the trigger
her breasts heaved in the moonlight again
there was a smear of gold in the window
and then I was the jewel of her sin

they call me William the Pleaser
I sold opium fireworks and lead
now I'm telling my troubles to strangers
when the shadows get long I'll be dead

her hair was a black as a bucket of tar
skin as white as a cuttlefish bone
I left Texas to follow Lucinda
I know I'll never see heaven or home

and my tears in league with the wires
and energy and my machine.

I want to give you everything.
I want to give you energy.
I want to give a good thing.
I want to give you everything.

climb this high she looks beautiful
like a child I feel tears.
and I want to scream.
you know what I mean cause this is hurting no one.
an eraser of love.
hurt. the necessary feeling.
why don't you call me I feel like flying in two.
an eraser of love.

12:16PM - shine on

In a garden in the house of love, sitting lonely on a plastic chair
The sun is cruel when he hides away, I need a sister - I'll just stay
A little girl, a little guy - in a little church or in a school
Little Jesus are you watching me, I'm so young - just eighteen

She, she, she, she Shine On
Shine On
Shine On

In a garden in a house of love, there's nothing real just a coat of arms
I'm not the pleasure that I used to be - so young - just eighteen

She, she, she, she Shine On
Shine On
Shine On

I don't know why I dream this way
The sky is purple and things are right every day
I don't know, it's just this world's so far away
But I won't fight, and I won't hate
Well not today

In a garden in the house of love
Sitting lonely on a plastic chair
The sun is cruel when he hides away

Shine On...
Shine On
Shine On

....and on...and on...

Shine
Shine On
Shine
Shine
Shine

12:01AM - Marilyn My Bitterness - Cruxshadows

I don't understand how you've done
these things to me
I can not comprehend your lack
of loyalty

For you i would have shaken down the
heavens from the sky

But it seems my love was stronger than
this love of yours that died

Did you think it wouldn't hurt?
Did you think I wouldn't feel
when the world came falling down?
or maybe you didn't think at all
and that's why I feel what I feel now
Did you think I wouldn't fall?

Did you think I wouldn't cry?
Did you think I wouldn't beg
you to stay?
One of these days you're gonna realize
just what you've thrown away

Now I lie here in this empty bed
and all I think about is you
and I wonder if you miss me now

and if your bed is empty too

(bridge)

Marilyn my bitterness
I've fallen to a stranger nightmare
Marilyn, oh Marilyn
I cannot... find my way / break away

I'll absorb this agony

I'll carry all this pain
I'll wipe away this emptiness
I'll purify this stain
my wings will fold around me now
for once a one was two
and my memory is a monument
that will always stand for you

(bridge)

Marilyn my bitterness
I've fallen to a stranger nightmare
Marilyn, oh Marilyn
I cannot... find my way / break away

Now must I go away?

Current mood: bouncy

6:24PM

Hunched up in a little ball.
They fooled around and grabbed his balls,
and called him names and bled him dry.
He tried to lie,
he tried to cry.
To die, to die, to die.
(But there's no one listening... no one listening)

They left him lying by a drain,
and somehow he forgot the pain.
The rain, it rained in boots and blades.
He cried out from the shade.
Pressed a friendly doorbell
and they gave him lemonade, laid him on a bed.
But still his head went spinning 'round
But still the blood went dripping down.
It soaked the sheets,
it soaked his shirt,
soaked his jersey sweater...

Better get the BLASTO out, to blast away the stains!

Nothing's better!!! (Blast away the stains)
Nothing's better!!! (Blast away the stains)

Even for those stubborn stains!
