LYRICS: ‘Nine One One’

LYRICS: ‘Nine One One’

Neon flickered skin
Naked under floodlight sun
Cold flesh against the steel
Warmth covers, warmth covers.
When you’re alone
That can be the greatest company
Not solitude
But elegant sanctuary.
Mirror in the bathroom
Reflecting crimson truth
Reflecting you
Your time will come
Seconds into days
Wait some more
Eyes closed sight.
This story doesn’t have to end
The twist you revel in
Can be a tsunami heartbeat
A tsunami heartbeat.

This time is not your own
Face in the crowd
Blood red sentimental fool
Did someone call an ambulance?
Call an ambulance.

LYRICS: ‘Then Dance The Streets Till Dawn’

LYRICS: ‘Then Dance The Streets Till Dawn’

Frisson of electricity
Passing through us like a ghost
Try to think but there’s only you
Nirvana made flesh, over here.

Crossing other memories
Scarlet world then turns translucent blue.
Heart goes faster as it slows down
Can’t explain it, only you.

Time to venture through the city
Bodies one under the neon
One last lime lager at the club
Then dance the streets till dawn
Then dance the streets till dawn
Then dance the streets till dawn.

LYRICS: ‘Brady Song’

LYRICS: ‘Brady Song’

So draw yourself a grid
Like a geographical battleships.
Now take a guess
I promise you the truth
If that’s what you require.
You hate me but you need me too,
You can’t destroy me or the mystery can’t be solved.
There?
Nothing there I’m afraid,
Just rocks and undisturbed dirt.
Virgin soil not your virgin child
Virgin soil not your virgin child.

Perhaps you should leave
Consult your psychic
Take out your spade and dig?
Maybe a year…
Maybe five years, you’ll hit a bone
Frantically throw the earth
Until you unveil the truth.
Look into the sunken sockets
Brush away the dirt
Alas, poor Unnamed
We both loved him
Just our way was literal.
Painful and eternal
We’ll add your broken heart to the haul.
I’ll laugh as the prison lights click off
Unaware of the razored toothbrush at my throat.

Is that justice, child?
Is that justice, child?
Is that justice, child?

The ultimate irony,
Final fame is mine.
My face adorns the covers
Your boy is on page 26
Between the racing and the porno lines.
Between the racing and the porno lines.

LYRICS: ‘The Ballad Of The Flipper Baby’

LYRICS: ‘The Ballad Of The Flipper Baby’

Sweet little flipper baby
Ugly as sin yet beautiful.
Breathing in the acrid smoke,
Lungs drip with black tar haze.

Sweet little flipper baby
Star of the whole damn horror show.
Weak hearted, loose limbed
Drowning in the umbilical flood.

We love you flipper baby
We love you flipper baby
We love you flipper baby
Mommy’s little tragedy.

Sweet little flipper baby
A Daniel Johnston hurt exorcism.
Singing fish lips gasp for air
Blackness sweeping in, eyes glazed.

Sweet little flipper baby
Embryonic supermodel.
Razor thin fins flip, heavy agitation,
Metaphorical hook tears skin.

We love you flipper baby
We love you flipper baby
We love you flipper baby
Daddy’s little tragedy.

Three days out the hospital
Flipper baby catches cold
Blue plaque above the garage
Blue fish fins in the cot.
Flipper baby gone.
Gone, baby, gone.

We loved you flipper baby
We loved you flipper baby
We loved you flipper baby
Nature’s little miracle
Nature’s little miracle
Nature’s little death.
