Empty of feeling

Yeah, I wake you up in the morning
just to ask if Im empty and boring
Oh, you shake me up in the evening
when you ask if Im empty of feeling

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

You sit me down on a green lawn
I’m getting tired of your voice tone
I’m trying hard to be creative
still you’re acting like we are related

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

You told me once as we held hands
I was your connection to the mainland

Empty of feeling
Empty of feeling

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

Yeah, I wake you up in the morning
just to ask if Im empty and boring
Oh, you shake me up in the evening
when you ask if Im empty of feeling

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

Girl One

Girl one, talk to me
How are we doin’ so far?
I’m fine, honestly
Ever read the Bell Jar?
Dum di dum di da da

Girl One

Girl one, trip me up,
drag me down and then pick me up
Girl one, always there
Always Jewish with curly hair
Dum di dum di da da

Girl One

Sunday I got so bored
Down at South Street Seaport
Friends in town, we had to show ‘em around
Rolls of film later, I say
Do me a favor; tell me
Are we done here PLEASE!

Girl one, moving on
How are we doing today?!
I’m fine, honestly
What do you want me to say?
Dum di dum di da da

Girl One (repeat)

Bovine

I must’ve have been half-baked
tryin’ to work the land
I must’ve been some sight
A shovel in my hand
If you could see me
turning over dirt

I must’ve been out there
for taking no advice
I used to be laid-back
and to be precise
I like a late morning
to rest my weary head

You have to be gifted
to get me out of bed

I don’t care
if you give it away
Give it away
And I’m there

I’m digging my heels in
I swore I’d never quit
I got me a bovine
to make me look legit
I got me a sheep-dog
and a beat-up truck
I couldn’t do better
to get me thru the much
I couldn’t do better
to get me turn the mulch

I have until Monday
to make a little sense
I got until Tuesday
to present my full defense
I’m betting the farm on
I’m gonna lose my shirt
Apart from a bovine
I own a piece of dirt
I must have been crazy
for taking on the work

I don’t mind
if you give it away
Give it away
And you’re mine

——————————————————————-

Whalebone

Don’t ask questions
you don’t wanna know
Don’t ask for reasons
I will let it show
You’ve got to know by now how it feels
Got to know how it feels

Oh weeping night
Oh grieving sky
Oh rabbit wind
You just flew by
Oh grant me this, some small reward
I need to make sense of it all
And we will walk, down by the beach
into the sand we will reach
A whalebone
washed on the shore
like knowledge gained
you can’t ignore

Don’t ask questions
you dont wanna know
Don’t ask for reasons
Better let it go
You’ve gotta know by now how it feels
I gotta know how it feels

——————————————————————-

Shooting spree

Got out of bed with
things in my head
I said to myself
Be good to yourself
You have to be
Who else will be?

The neighbour next door
His wife left for more
He sits in his chair
and watches the war
You have to be
You have to see

Ahh

How days can turn so sad

Man on the roof
kills everyone that gets
in the line
of him and his gun
then shoots himself
when he’s done…

Could one foresee
Where it would lead
a schoolyard dispute
turns into a high school
shooting spree
Tragically

Ahh

How days can turn so sad

And strip you of all that’s glad

——————————————————————-

Melanie lied to me

Melanie, you lied to me
you showed me things you
knew I wasn’t meant to see
Melanie… like you cared
you told me things you knew I wasn’t
meant to hear
Make it go away (three times)

YEAH!

Melanie lied to me
Everything we shared it meant so much to me
When you looked me in the eyes it dawned on me
It never really mattered much to you

Melanie… so unaware
A quality that I mistook for sweet & rare
Melanie, in the end
what we had isn’t coming round again
You made it go away (three times)

YEAH!

MELANIE LIED TO ME, every time we talked
it meant the world to me
When you shut me out
it took a while to see
you never really needed much from me
you never really wanted much from me

——————————————————————-

Watertowers

Just a chilly winter day
I love to see NYC this way
It’s a Wednesday morning
Seven o’ five
January’s almost done
Watertowers and the snow on the ground
Always something going on

Just the usual winter storm
Nothing bigger than the norm
I just let ‘em greet me
One at a time
I don’t have to see that change
Watertowers and a bird on a line
Right beneath my window pane
Just a chilly winter day
Ask me nicely and I’ll stay

——————————————————————-

Is my confidence reeling?

What’s the point of doing cart-wheels in the sun
Gaze the rain-washed hills
And wish for things undone?
Is it over yet? When’s it gonna end?
Is my confidence reeling?

It’s not hard to feel outside from it all
It’s not hard to stay cold & uninvolved
But for each new day, I feel less inclined
Is my confidence reeling?

I should’ve been of help and mindful to your needs
Will the pangs of guilt ease up if I’m on my knees
Tell me what to do, tell me what to say
Send my confidence reeling

And I know just what you’ll say
Yes, it happens every day
to one you met along the way
And I know just what will be
so wonderful to see; if somehow
some place later we could meet

What’s the point of writing songs that no one hears
Little waves of sound falling on deaf ears
All the care and thought
Was it all for naught
Or is my confidence reeling?
Is my confidence reeling?

——————————————————————-

Rain on your parade

Head high
You strike a weighty pose
You say: c’mon gather round
The playback is filling up the room
That Up-With-People sound
That Up With People sound

I don’t want to rain on your parade
In light of all the hopes
and all the plans
that you have made
I don’t want to rain on your parade
But watch me anyway, yeah
Watch me anyway, yeah

Take a good look where we are
Damn right I wanted more
Like everything we worked for

I don’t want to rain on your parade
But there’s just something ‘bout your face
that rubs me the wrong way
I don’t wanna rain on your parade
Watch me anyway, yeah
Watch me anyway, yeah

——————————————————————-

Cyna

Everyday I’m wishing the clouds away over you, everyday
Pull your face out from the shade
Into the sun, SUN, SUN
La la la la la la la la
And all it ever was…
La la la la la la la la
Is all that it will be
Everyday I’m wishing us far away from this place, every day
You with ME and I with you
In the sun sun SUN SUN
And all we ever got is all we’ll ever have
And everything we got is everything we’ll have

——————————————————————-

The breakers

I can still recall the time, sitting in the sand
and watch the breakers as they roll upon the shore
You just walked right up to me: having asked
around – you’ve had no takers to take you far away from here
Then I came along to hold your hand

Everything is up and its allright cause I feel
the engine pulling us towards a new days light
Everything is down and its ok cause I feel
the engine humming and its taking us away

I’ve been seeing you around sitting in the end
And watching breakers as they roll upon the shore
You always have your friends around, but something
you should know I think they’re fakers
I’m the only one you need
Here I come along to hold your hand

Everything is off, but that’s just fine cause
I see the engine running down the straight white line
Everything goes wrong but that’s allright
Because I hear the engine humming as it penetrates the night

Where do we go from here
Stepping into mid-air
How do we work it out
Where do we check our doubts

——————————————————————-

Isotope

Dead of the winter
snow gently falling
stillness surrounds us
church bells are calling
Out in the distance
Cuts thru the grey clouds
I couldn’t live here now
But maybe someday
Maybe one day soon

Dead of the winter
Tracks in the new snow
See where they lead to
See where they will go
Into the forest
somebodys waiting
I wouldn’t go there now
You do what you want
You do or you don’t
Your call

Carbon emissions
de-forestation
Antarctic warming
Land degradation
Fuel-wood consumption
Urbanization

I couldn’t live here now
But maybe one day soon
