Lupine

You’re the only man I have loved

Since in utero

And now fragile is your mind

And if I have to spend the rest of my life

 

Slaying dragons

Sharpening talons

 

And if I can’t rewind

And if I can’t buy time

 

I’ll play back history

Cinematic memory

Scene, shot, take, slate

Every hour of every day

 

I’ll slay your dragons

I’ll pray for callus

Sharpen your talons

Come what may

 

You’re the only one that I know

Who could handle the fallout  

Unraveling in kind

And if I have to spend the rest of my life

 

I’ll slay your dragons

Sharpen our talons

And if I can’t rewind

Or tame the land mines

 

I’ll sing our history

sy-nap-tic ecstasy

au-to-harp

trace

every hour of every day

I’ll slay your dragons

I’ll pray for callus

And if I can’t rewind

Or buy us time...

 

Sing along with me

ah ah ah, ah ah ah

 

You’re the only man I have loved

Since in utero

And now fragile is your mind

And if I have to spend the rest of my life

 

I’ll slay your dragons

Sharpen our talons

And if I can’t rewind

Or buy us time

oooooh (x2)

 

I’ll slay your dragons

Sharpen our talons

And if I can’t rewind…..

ooooh (x2)

Valentine In My Headphones

MoMA won’t you call it

You could bend the beat

You could carve the street

Pick up the phone

 

It's down to the wire

I'm running on fumes

I need a muse

And a bone

 

We gotta carcass without the distress

Sunday without Monday

A steeple w/ no precipice

Valentine in the honeycomb

 

Holler when the fire is good and ready

Pull out all the rhymes

Bust apart the steady apropo

 

Soldier don’t you falter

We got plans for you

Silver, gold, the moon on cue

 

Sheath the pound, pound, pound of your heart

Kiss the boo who hit the mark

though the brillo

 

Cat calls without scuffles

Stuntmen with no rubble

People with no crucifix

Valentine in my headphones

in my headphones

 

Valentine in my headphones,

in my headphones,

in my headphones

 

Valentine in my headphones,

in my headphones,

in my headphones

 

Of all the hot, hot, sparks in the dark

This is the tool that lit them all

in my headphones

(my headphones)

 

Holler when the fire is good and ready

Pull out all the rhymes

Bust apart the steady apropo

(in my headphones)

 

Valentine in my headphones,

in my headphones,

in my headphones

I got valentine in my headphones,

in my headphones,

in my headphones

I got valentine in my headphones,

in my headphones,

in my headphones

Valentine x 3

Onyx Crazy Eyes

Conning all the pros

With talk like you're a sensei

String’em a-long

And vamp'em till they're empty

Spare me........

 

Conning the pros to prove yourself

Putting out, turning out tricks to treat your dirty habits

 

When it all comes down

come down for it

you know you’re breaking darlin’

don’t your darlin', don't you

 

And you've been staring at the floor- for so long

Nodding off in stride

 

I see you found the one thing

I can see it behind onyx crazy eyes

I see you found it darling

And it's haunting from the inside

 

Face it you’re falling to pieces- you know you need to get out (get out)

You’re blazing, you're craving, you're fiening- you know you’re gonna burn out

You might of made it through the weekend, but there’s no breaking bad now

And by now

You gotta another lover who's leaving you for a new plateau

 

Too small to burn bridges in this town

Only so much that you can hide behind

(All good deeds in love (now, now, now)

 

And you know it all comes down to this

When you play games it’s games that you get

and it breaks you down

 

And you've been staring at the floor- for so long

Nodding off in stride

 

I see you found the one thing, yes the one thing that could take you down

I see you found the one thing that could chew you up and spit you out.....

 

Face it you’re falling to pieces- you know you need to get out (get out)

You’re blazing, you're craving, you're fiening- you know you’re gonna burn out

You might of made it through the weekend, but there’s no breaking bad now

And by now

You gotta another lover who's leaving you for a new plateau

Transparent

Fickle little piece mackin’ Bao Bao

Take it uptown to the Jewel Box, top floor

 

Moises took a tune fork into the night now

Nan’l got piece of his heart on his sleeve while

Baby got her tongue out

And everybody loves her

No matter her struggles

Ba-baby’s in a bubble

 

And everybody loves her

 

Thirsty little stare tonight

Light bright, low tide

Phosphorescence in the pit of my

Dapper little mixer bending the pitch up high

Luck be a lady

Thirsty little stare tonight

Light bright, low tide

Phosphorescence in the pit of my

Dapper little mixer bending the pitch up high

Luck be a lady

Oooh la oooh la la (x2)

Collide

I know that stare

You’ve got something to say

A silent plea

“Oh won’t you drag it out of me…

...Kicking and screaming?”

Drag it out of me (x2)

 

You say you don’t love me

But your eyes say differently

Your eyes won’t lie to me

Eyes won’t lie to me

 

You say please don’t touch me

But your breath is catching

Irises ink blotting

 

Drag it out of me (x3)

Kicking and screaming

 

I'm gonna make you shudder, stutter

Make you come undone

I'm gonna make you struggle lover

Make you fall apart (x2)

(Bridge)

Fits and starts

The sweet, the salt

The kink, the shards

The meek, the martyr

Teetering chrysalis

You think you have no heart

but I've tasted your pulse

I've seen how your body hums

 

Say you don’t love me

But your eyes say differently

Your eyes won’t lie to me

Eyes won’t lie to me

 

You say please don’t touch me

But your breath  is catching

Irises ink blotting

 

I'm gonna make you shudder, stutter

Make you come undone

I'm gonna make you struggle lover

Make you fall apart (x2)

 

Drag it out of me

Drag it out of me

Drag it out of me, kicking and screaming

Skin to Skin

Come see

For yourself

Oh come a little bit closer

Just one more step

From up here the streets look still

 

And all the people

Down below

Won't look up

So you can

 

Touch me

Skin to skin

 

Look me in the eyes

So I know it's real

Cause when you leave

This all stays

 

Here with me

On this sill

And I'll water it

Everyday

Grow it on its own again

Clash

All I wanted was to brave your soul…. Honestly

Home, I’ll find my way home, I’ll find  my way home (x2)

 

Is this what you wanted

I find it incredible

That you find me soft

I’m not that soft

Come on out with it

I can take it

Just rid it, rid it, admit it

Gimme something solid to work with

 

All I wanted was…

To brave your soul…. Honestly….

Home, I’ll find my way home, I’ll find  my way home

Home, I’ll find my way home, I’ll find my way home

Sister Wolves

Ohhhhh ahhhaah

My sister wooooolves

ahhhha, oooohh

 

I took the road again

The one that goes on forever

The one that stole our breath

Then brought us back up for air

 

And oh the moon bled out light

Like a lover falls to pieces

And I sense it

You’re gonna break my heart

You’re leaving your mark

 

Ohhhhh, ohhhhh  ) x2

 

Of all the packs you tried breakin’

My sister wolves

Of all the lies you tried playin’

My sister wolves

Of all the lines you tried breakin’

Somewhere in the confines

In the mooring of the pack

A trace too pure

To perceive

To detect

And I sense it

You’re gonna break my heart

You’re leaving your mark

My sister wolves

Of all the packs you tried breakin’

Yeah all the lines your tried playin’

Kamikaze

Kiss the moths in the sky

In the attic you’ll find

a kamikaze

 

Collect the casualties

Save’em for the masterpiece

It’s all been done but not like this

 

Humble, humble

We all stumble

Dust to ashes

No exceptions

 

I will lay it all out (ba, ba, ba)

I follow the thrills

And (the) truth be told

Under bone and skin

 

I still have my doubts (ba, ba, ba)

What sane man wouldn’t

And it’s not as though you can plan for it

 

A Kamikaze (x2)

A Kamikaze

 

Kiss the casualties

Slip’em in the masterpiece

It’s all been done but not like this

 

Humble, humble, we all stumble

Dust to ashes

No exceptions (doubled vox)

 

I will lay it all out

I follow the thrills

And truth be told

Under bone and skin

 

I still have my doubts

What sane (wo)man wouldn’t

And it’s not as though you can plan for it

 

A Kamikaze (x8),  (kamikaze)

Kamikaze (kamikaze)

Kamikaze

Kamikaze (kamikaze)

Kamikaze

Kamikaze

Kamikaze

Kamikaze

(Backing vox)
Kiss the dust, kiss the thrills, under bone and skin you’re still….

Dust to ashes, truth be told, lay it out humble, humble

Kiss the dust, kiss the thrills.  Under bone and skin you’re still….

A kamikaze

Dust to ashes, truth be told, lay it out humble, humble

A kamikaze
