Lyrics

Here Again On The Island

Mona don’t you know / it was the hardest way to go / but I’m here again on the island / feeling like a child / the rabbit and the ghosts / Wallace don’t you know / I don’t think about it anymore / not the cat nor the rage / all the leaves are falling / from Jupiter / all the leaves are falling / from Jupiter / Mona don’t you see, / it’s not you or me / it’s the same way for everyone / giving up on the shore / the dream and the pen / are you still there at the desk / all the lies she told don’t matter now / she’s a million lines away / all the leaves are falling / from Jupiter / all the leaves are falling / from Jupiter / come down / I wanna show you / so many things / come now / I was so wrong about so many things / I wanna leave it now / oh won’t you lay it down / I wanna leave it now / Wallace, she’s alone / drifting in and out / should I write to mend the tear I see / or was there merit in the cold? / all the leaves are falling / From Jupiter / all the leaves are falling / from Jupiter / come down / I wanna show you / so many things / come now / I was so wrong about so many things / I wanna leave it now / oh won’t you lay it down / I wanna leave it now / Mona don’t you know / it was the hardest way to go / but I’m here again on the island / feeling like a child

Don’t panic yet, the world is right / and you’ll be wrong ten times again / don’t panic yet, the world is right / and you’ll be wrong ten times again / don’t panic yet, the world is right / and you’ll be wrong ten times again / don’t laugh just yet, it ain’t that good / and there’s more bad in store tonight / hey, I can’t care / no more so leave it / I’ve got my boots and stories / I’ll take them out again / sure, you changed, you changed, you changed / sure, you changed, you changed, you changed / there are days, I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know / I had it there, now it’s gone it’s gone its gone it’s gone / don’t look at her, there’s big big trouble / in those eyes / just go back home, take off your shoes / and lock the door / no, no, no, I can’t care / no more so leave it / I’ve got my boots and stories / I’ll take them out again / sure, you changed, you changed, you changed / sure, you changed, you changed, you changed / there are days, I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know / I had it there, now it’s gone it’s gone its gone it’s gone / it’s gone / don’t smirk just yet you know she’s right / and you’re self righteous tonight / what of the car what of the stove / I don’t believe you / no, no, no, I can’t care / no more so leave it / I’ve got my boots and stories / I’ll take them out again / sure, you changed, you changed, you changed / sure, you changed, you changed, you changed /
there are days, I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know / I had it there, now it’s gone it’s gone its gone it’s gone / don’t panic yet, the world is right / and you’ll be wrong ten times again

Shiseido

Shiseido red / I will find you / I’ll love me after / I have forged you / it’s been a time, I know it has / when he died he took it all, / the cheap frames and the glass / he called me yesterday and said / it’s colder here, but I’m OK / he’s a sure friend / Shiseido red / I will find you / I’ll love me after / I have forged you / but I can’t go please understand / I’ve got your shirts well folded here / in the red drawer / when it gets awfully cold / I think of you and I get scared / then I light the stove / just tonight / can I live like this lets see / just tonight / can I live like this lets see / it’s still cold in the heat / though I turn color, and glamor in the heat / if I’m still here, then where is he? / if I’m still here, then where is he? / Shiseido red / I will find you / I’ll love me after / I have forged you / so come on now pick up that phone / I got some things that I / wanna tell you / I’m coming down there all alone / in my best leather boots and my / red dress / just tonight / can I live like this lets see / just tonight / can I live like this lets see / it’s still cold in the heat / though I turn color, and glamor in the heat / if I’m still here, then where is he? / if I’m still here, then where is he? / if I’m still here, then where is he? / if I’m still here, then where is he? / yes, I turned color and glamor in heat / I turned color and glamor in the heat

Who Is He?

I come around to check you out / no big thing I’m on about / in a way, she always changed / in a way, still the same / who’s this girl you’ve introduced / I don’t seem to know her or you / tell me baby what’s gotta give / tell me baby / who is he? / When you leave the room / they start talking about you / they’ll talk about that one bad choice we had to make / and I’ll just smile / I’ll just say / so who is he? who is he? / I’ve been a mess / just getting by / stuck somewhere in between / me and you / there’s times I remember / she grew up fast / there’s times I remember / and I just laugh / I’ve been a mess / like I said / existential, dirty, lazy, f#$%*d up at the same time / when you leave the room / they start talking about you / they’ll talk about that one bad choice we had to make / and I’ll just smile / I’ll just say / who is he? / who is he? / who is he? / who is he? / when you leave they the room / I start thinking about you / I’ll think about the one bad choice we had to make / and I’ll just smile / I’ll just say / it wasn’t me / it wasn’t me / it wasn’t me / it wasn’t me / I come around to check you out / no big thing I’m on about

Inas

In the hour of my deception / she is standing there with me / simple beauty of the blind trust / I show you all of me / she says baby take a picture / I’ll take it everywhere I go / you betray like the sunrise / of callow days moving on / you said you needed to know / you’re sure of how high you’ll go / I will find her without your permission / I will find her without your permission / in the hour of my deception / he is eating supper slow / simple beauty of the husband / I build you all of this / he says baby better than ever / I think meat is all it is / you said you said needed to know / you said you just needed to know / I will find her without your permission / I will find her without your permission / I will find her without your permission / I will find her without your permission / I will find her without your permission / In the hour of your deception / she’ll be standing there for you / she’ll say baby take a picture / please now take it now

Muzzle

You said to me your name means bound / I thought coincidence is cruel / I thought of your freckles your drawers all open / your makeshift curtains of old sheets slung / what I found don’t matter / what I found don’t matter / All the love making and bite / the stories and stories and the claws / what of your new your place are you different / Do you portion out a space for everything? / what I found don’t matter / what I found don’t matter / This time it’s different I swear / you know I didn’t, I swear / oh the tiger is here / oh the tiger, the fear / oooh the tiger is here / Love, do you still that weight? / Massive paws on our shoulders / the threat of claws imminent under the fluff / it owns us yeah the beast / what I found don’t matter / what I found don’t matter / This time it’s different I swear / you know I didn’t, I swear / oh the tiger is here / oh the tiger, the fear / this time it’s different I swear / you know I didn’t, I swear / oh the tiger is here / oh the tiger, the fear / oooh the tiger, the fear
