1.
Tie a little string to the door. Tie the other end to your tooth, child. It won't hurt, but for the moment Of closing. You must make room for all that is growing. Hold each other's arms Through the night. Beat each other's hearts Before the fire dies. You can't ignore the sound of One drum When it's played By hands of Millions. And I Sit on the balcony And watch The sun, as it comes.
2.
So you can't believe the night when She says you're on fire In an empty street. Even the moon says she's a star When she's staring white With the sunlight. And you and I are of the same dust, And we both watch the great parade. But you grew up and learned the tune Of the marching band, you fell in line. Then you built each other churches So you could draw some line of truth. In the banks and in the ballrooms What you say ain't what you do. And it's the strangest thing— The few, the small, the judge and jury. The richest men carry the country Straight to it's grave. Now we've been wronged And we've been had Another day, here in the promised land. You've done no wrong. You should be mad. This ain't the good life That you worked to have. This ain't the good life And I will take anything That the morning brings.
3.
When night falls, I'll lay by your side. And when the newness wears thin and runs dry I will beat your heart. I will beat your heart. If you will be mine. And when the crooks come and say, "Join our ranks. If you ain't a pirate, then your ship is sank." Will you beat my heart? Will you beat my heart, before I fall astray? And when the ground falls from beneath our feet. And when the long days bring no relief. I will beat your heart. I will beat your heart, If you will beat mine. I will beat your heart. I will beat your heart. I will be everything you need.

Michael, Michael Who you think you are, now? Banging on the drum Of the dying dusk? You played your part. Dogs rained down. Lit the spark. Now there's nothing left For you to stand on. The city streets are shaking In the sober sun. So it goes, The bashing blues Keep us whole. Keep us whole. Storm clouds crack. Fire's bound to break. Hear that sound? The wild's wide awake.
5.
I knew I'd see your face again. I know you have the best intentions. So I leave my heart out on the door. You knock it down just like you did before. You don't live, you just pretend. You only come back when you're short of friends. You believe every single thing you say. But in the morning it won't sound the same. Hold me closer than the needle. Fill the emptiness I feel. Hold me closer, I am real. I'll fill the emptiness you feel. We feel. Now, you've been locked up, You've been chained. Junk took your mother, still, you won't be swayed. He's got his hands around your throat. You beg him, baby, please don't let me go. Hold me closer than the needle. Fill the emptiness I feel. Hold me closer, I am real. I'll fill the emptiness you feel. We feel.

Who's calling? Who's calling me now?

Come back down To where the tall grass greener grows And walk along your footprints. Leave your lust where the long winds always blow, And remember how to forgive. Stay with me. I will beat your heart. Till you learn how to love once more. But you must come now, 'cause you never know what you've got to lose. But you must come now, 'cause you always knew that you'd have to choose. But you must come now. It's the only time that I'm asking you. You must come with me now. Come back down To where the cowboys used to roam. No, we weren't afraid to die here. Leave your lust where the vultures turn to stone. And feel the pulse in the air. Stay with me. I will beat your heart. Till you learn how to love once more. But you must come now, 'cause you never know what you've got to lose. But you must come now, 'cause you always knew that you'd have to choose. But you must come now. It's the only time that I'm asking you. You must come with me now.

When the boys from the Lotus Fair Saw the gringos coming... And who was I to be Living there? Didn't even own a problem at all. Walk tall. Don't look In the eyes. I disappear in the daylight. At night I'm lit like a Neon sign. Stay in, watch the traffic below. Over Edgeware, over the freeway Is where those boys collide Choose your life or you choose a side They say, "It makes no difference We all are gonna die." ...look out for me and mine. Down in line on Logan St. The fire was without warning. And the young boy out at the lemon tree Could he have seen it coming at all? Walk tall, don't look in the eyes. But he was shot In broad daylight. Don't need words when We've got our knives. Just carve a little warning sign. Over Edgeware, over the freeway Is where those boys collide Choose your life or you choose a side They say, "It makes no difference We all are gonna die."

All you Bright ideas Sitting pretty In the snow, I wash you Clean of conscience How old bible Stories grow Out of nothing, Into nothing Into your fears, Out of nothing Into nothing All your ideals. And all you Best intentions Sleeping soundly At the wheel It's not what You were born for But how you die that Makes you real. If you are nothing Out of nothing A failing dream. If you are nothing Out of nothing Why lose some sleep? All you Sleeping children Growing unseen In the night We're sowing Your forgiveness In the sheets we Tuck so tight. We give you nothing You get nothing But guiding light. You get nothing We leave you nothing But flames to fight.

Suddenly we are no Longer the builders. Suddenly there are no More trips to the moon. It's not what all the Babies booming Thought they'd see when They grew up and grew Backwards. Lost their Flowers. They blew smoke and Got really high. They forgot the fire Was waiting behind. Or Goldman couldn't care less. I was sleeping with you With all the lights Burning. Burning Faster Through Disaster. We saw smoke and Got pretty high. A good day for White collar crime. If we don't know We'll never ask, "why?" So go buy what the Money you don't have Can buy... Pass on the problem. When it's time... We'll say we misjudged this. When it's time... We'll say...

I'm fed with livestock Rain, grasses and grain That I bought in a city From another city that I Cannot name. And I'll meet you for dinner And we'll speak the same What choice have we got? We kiss women who love us And we love the same. And these men that we're making, These men we've become, Who speak with conviction But can't find the answers When the day is done, Will we side with the same truth When we've mined long enough? Will we stand up and see eye to eye Once the wild has torn straight through our guts? We all We all Dissolve In all When I talk like a liar, When I've sold all my dreams, When I stand tall, like a monument That's when you know that I'll never wash clean. Some wait for the whisper. Some wait for God. But it's never gonna be how you want it to be So, boy, just play along. 'cause there's a truth Buried in the murder— A man I want to know. So I can still look at myself In the the mirror And say, "Hell, you know Damn well the right way to go."

This one hope May leave my hands empty May make my head swim And twist my heart into a knot. This long rope Has got me swinging heavy Has got my neck stretched out Like a swan without a song. This bad joke Still has got me laughing Still has got me bawling Like a man chasing his hat. With just one line I could bring us closer Closer than old friends Or than your mama and your dad. But it's always over the hill Over the hill There's another hill To try and try to break my will. This tired voice May outlive my body May ride on the wind That's gonna blow me into dust. But I've made a few friends here And I ain't rushing off to hear what history's gotta say.
