10 What Makes Life Worth Living

What Makes Life Worth Living

Who would you want to die for
What is it that you believe
What makes life worth living to you
What is it that brings you relief
What is it that brings you relief
What is it that brings you relief

Comings and goings are easy to do
Step outside and your gone
Physical Love is like eating a meal
You can just walk away when you’re done
You can just walk away when you’re done
You can just walk away when you’re done

The tales they tell of romance
The tales they tell of strife
Why should we try to understand
The meaning of our lives
What matters are the spaces
In between the words we speak
Where we are bound together
By the secrets that we keep

You pose as a woman so perfectly
I hope it’s not a disguise
But touching your face I belive that you’re real
When I see the soul in your eyes
When I see the soul in your eyes
When I see the soul in your eyes

9 Double Take

Double Take

If how I seem is who I be
When you see me it’s I you see
But I’m not sure the I you see
Is not pretending he is me

Perhaps no difference does it make
If what you see is really fake
When there’s no court of appeal
To judge between what’s fake and real

Double take ’cause I am you
Like the song sung by The Who
Am I an act am I for real
Whats the diff’rence what should I feel

Do I a self that’s true deceive
By acting that I’m being me
Or is the point of life a show
And is there no true self to know

We’re not imprisoned in our skins
We’re not essentially within
So why is there a gap between
Who I am and what I seem

Double take ’cause I am you
Like the song sung by The Who
Am I an act am I for real
What’s the diff’rence what should I feel

Touch me, am I alive
Touch me, am I inside
Touch me, what’s there to know
Touch me, and let me go

Touch me, am I alive
Touch me, am I inside
Touch me, what’s there to know
Touch me, and let me go

If how I seem is who I be
When you see me it’s I you see
But I’m not sure the I you see
Is not pretending he is me

Perhaps no difference does it make
If what you see is really fake
When there’s no court of appeal
To judge between what’s fake and real

Double take ’cause I am you
Like the song sung by The Who
Am I an act am I for real
What’s the diff’rence what should I feel

8 Ice Queen Lady

Ice Queen Lady

A liberal dose of reality
Is all I get from you
You enunciate with total clarity
Why we can’t be two

While I go the extra mile
You end up being so coy
A dose of your cold water
Is poured upon my pride and joy

Ice queen lady
I want your ice cream baby
Not your bread and gravy
Not you’re sometime, maybe
Ice queen lady (repeat)

For morsels that you feed to me
I’m crawling on your floor
But while I hunger for your meal
You leave me hanging outside your door

Ice queen lady
I want your ice cream baby
Not your bread and gravy
Not you’re sometime, maybe
Ice queen lady (repeat)

I’m barking up the wrong tree
Like a dog that’s lost his bone
Don’t play the fool, give up the hunt
Just enjoy your time alone

I scream baby
You’re no ice cream lady
Don’t want your bread and gravy
Nor your sometime, maybe
I scream baby (repeat)

7 Let Love Go

Let Love Go

Was it yesterday you loved me
Was it yesterday you cared
When you held my hand in silence
And led me to the bed
We may have fought like tigers
But we shattered many myths
And you always changed the routines
Every time we kissed

Let love grow, or let love go
No in between for a love that’s been
Why love takes, and why love breaks
Nothing’s changed, can’t explain

What happened to our fever
What happened to our soul
The spirit of revolution
We poured upon the world
Every time I saw you
It was a call to arms
And we’d elect what to correct
And set off the alarms

Let love grow, or let love go
No in between for a love that’s been
Why love takes, and why love breaks
Nothing’s changed, can’t explain

I cannot find the reason
I’ve gnawed away the bone
But sometime in the dead of night
Our love turned to stone
I was with a stranger
Time resumed it’s pace
And when I turned towards you
I could not see your face

Our love fell like acid rain
Burning pools of cold disdain
There grew flowers of contempt
Which mocked the time we’d spent

The corpse of our relationship
Is buried on the dunes
I dreamt I went to visit there
And sang our favorite tunes
Has time erased the bitterness
Or am I growing old
Perhaps it’s just the song is sung
The story has been told

Let love grow, or let love go
No in between for a love that’s been
Why love takes, and why love breaks
Nothing’s changed, can’t explain

6 When It Comes to Love Songs

When It Comes to Love Songs

When it comes to love songs
The tunes they all seem sung
I hope this key will make you see
You’re worth another one

Sometimes its hard to find the words
That make a song ring true
So what am I supposed to write
To write a song for you
To write a song for you

I’ll keep it all real simple
And sing it soft and slow
The words will follow on the rhyme
And let the lyrics flow
And let the lyrics flow

When it comes to love songs
The tunes they all seem sung
I hope this key will make you see
You’re worth another one

I offer you a love song
That’s written on the wing
With words that say “I love you”
That love songs always sing
That love songs always sing

And if this song still feels the same
As ones you’ve often heard
Remember they’re for others
And this one’s for you girl
And this one’s for you girl

When it comes to love songs
The tunes they all seem sung
I hope this key will make you see
You’re worth another one

5 Cold State Blues

Cold State Blues

Cold state
Cold state
Cold state
Cold state

Dorothea’s velvet tune
Vampires stalk beneath the moon
Television’s blue film babes
Reside in icy shades

I am cold state blue
I’ve got the cold state blues
It may be news for you
You’re in the cold state too.

Berlin walls are made for keeps
Corpses strewn along the streets
North By Northwest said it well
Reside in icy hell

I am cold state blue
I’ve got the cold state blues
It may be news for you
You’re in the cold state too.

Surveillance grids on screens
In seas of greys and greens
Plot a thousand points of light
Reside in icy night

Alaska is a lovely place to see
Sarah Palin is the girl for me
Last frontier of the brave and free
We will make it white as it can be

I am cold state blue
I’ve got the cold state blues
It may be news for you
You’re in the cold state too.

4 She Don’t Believe in Love

She Don’t Believe in Love

She gathered men in scrapbooks
Pasted them onto leaves
It was her hall of infamy
Crimes measured by degrees
And maybe if she’d wanted
She might have scratched their eyes
And burned out their insides
And crushed them in her thighs
It didn’t show, you couldn’t know
She don’t believe in love

You thought you might be able
You were driven to refute
Her dear and long held feelings
That love with men was moot
You thought that if she wanted
She might have kissed your cheek
Encouraged you to speak
Left clues for you to seek
It didn’t show, you couldn’t know
She don’t believe in love

Perhaps she’d undertaken
The habits of a nun
Fingering her rosary
Devoted to the one
And why not if she wanted
To contemplate his face
Achieve a state of grace
All evil thoughts erase
It didn’t show, you couldn’t know
She don’t believe in love

And when you did last see her
She was practicing a tune
Words she sang were laced like threads
As woven from a loom
It seemed that all she wanted
Was to sing her hymns of praise
To all that God had made
To her sisters of the shade
It didn’t show, you couldn’t know
She don’t believe in love
