Two days gone And your face is wrong It's twisted and it's smeared in my head A Friday drive and a night so long In my dreams, all there is is dead Come one come all Come big and small Hurry up and don't miss the train Cause tides and smiles and silver turnstiles They teach us that we, we're all the same Cracks of laughs and photographs Only serve to keep the flame But twice a week when you look at me You send me down that road again So go alone, sit by coffin-stones Get your act down the road and run Go sit by the lake, go and lie in wait For the knife that's never going to come Make me as frozen as a backlit northern dawn Put me to bed, but leave my boots on I am tired, so tired In the mind. As I wait for the medicine to make its way I can feel every single bone that's in my face Cracked and battered, bruised and shattered Just trying to see if they were real or they were fake In hazy nights I stand 'neath shower lights For an hour, and then, an hour more My legs gets weak, wooden bones start to creak If you stay in long enough and you let the water get warm Well I swear, I swear, I swear, I swear It can almost feel like, again, you're being born.

You're afraid of a dog so you curse when he's just trying to talk So he bites your leg and now you're suing to get him shot A month goes by your leg's healed, the dog is dead But you're still feeling wronged; at least the dog had someone to share his bed And so you're walking home got your best anger face on You say the world's the king and the moon's his queen, and I'm a pawn But if you only knew how I truly feel for you I bet you would have held my hand and jumped too Don't have to push me all that hard 'cause I can fall of that ledge on my own Talked to the sidewalk below and he promised to make a better home And as a boy I'd always thought it'd be so cool if I could fly You keep talking to me like that you might just talk me into trying Skipping home, got my best dancing shoes on And there's a hole in the heel where I kicked your door in And if you only knew how I truly feel for you, I bet you would have held my hand and jumped too.

I've had enough of this sovereignty I want you back here with me I've had my day, I've made my play I want to give up independence I see the sight, and for a while I see the glint of your eye And in the forest air, I feel you there I see the wisp of your long brown hair I'll be fine, here, on my own. I can start to count all my coins. Let me sip until I die Let me sleep until I'm weak Leave me out in the rain I want to fall down the drain Out to the West, that I know the best, I want to see the top of the hills I want the watershed to be my bed I want to flow down into the sea Well, it's hard to be a good person It's hard to be a good person.

I’ll see you tonight my dear, my love Wherever you may go I'll be waiting for you Rain, cold, sleet, or snow, my love I'll be waiting there for you Yes, I'll be waiting for you Yes, I'll be waiting for to come You will see That you and I will be In arm and arm in arm and arm Arm and arm in arm and arm You'll see And on and on and on and on On and on and on and on We'll be

Your friend plays music on her CD player But you're afraid to sing along. You fear you voice might not fit the track, And you don't want to get a word wrong. You say you're looking for a quiet night To rent a movie and sit around. Maybe a dinner party with a few good friends, But if he asks you'll go out and see the town. Fall asleep in the lost and found, Wake with both feet on the ground, Find a diner with hash browns, You've always got tomorrow to sit around It's a middle week in November, Nodding at people as they pass By my window, and I remember questions when with you I was to afraid to ask. But I must have left them behind As I packed things into my mind, Because I can't seem to find them anywhere.

You're walking, you're talking to me And we're talking, we're walking to see What you want, all we want is to be free In my pocket, my eye sockets bleed In your locket, got Davey Crockett and he screams "What we want, all we want is to be free." So grow your hair out my little child You've got yours still 'till they say they care and when you're older you're gonna cut it down 'Cause if that's what they want, then that's what you want If that's what they want, then that's what you want The court jester, the queen's impressor cry rot The encyclopedic compressor's jaw drops What we want, all we want is to stop our thoughts So tell your parents, tell your professors, and tell the cops No need to teach us or police us into rocks What we want, all we want is to stop our thoughts

I never want to leave the places that I'm leaving I never asked to see the things that I'm seeing Take a load for mother there, who's busy with her things Rocking baby's gurgling cry and clipping daddy's wings A body not there, but you'll see it's in the air Take my lake signs and you'll find that you're divine Heaven smells a rotten mess and hell of roses reeks Can you wait a while more before the big man speaks? Shake a toad and say a prayer and out comes a shining prince Kick a mare just standing there and she won't even wince A body not there, but you'll see it's in the air Take my lake signs and you'll find that you're divine

Blue skin and you are looking on Blue skin and you are Blue skin and you hold my throat Blue skin and I start to choke Clocks keep moving on and Dali smiles Clouds are liquid in the eyes of a child Push me forward and I'll roll back a mile Sphinx and pyramids sink into the Nile Catch your picture you're a full grown swan Paint your picture gonna last 'til dawn Full moon rising and the stars burn on

I know how it works And how they fit in your scheme The weight of the backpack And the empty canteen But I know something else And that’s the sound of the scream When they found her body lying By the edge of the stream You’re just armchair, homeschool retirees Saturday, Sunday You’re vigilantes If you ever saw a real face And let it breeze You’d cower in the corner Of your RV Hiding in the dark With a code of his own It’s Omar Little, of the desert zone Stand back, hold up And aim at the brain He’s taking bales and scales From players of the game You can hear it over there But you can’t see it anywhere The sky is dim and the clouds are gone You think you see the break of another dawn But it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone It’s the Sunset Limited It’s the Sunset Limited It’s the Sunset Limited And it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone If you want evidence that things have gone too far Take a look at the soldier from the National Guard Who went down to Arizona with her gear all stowed To die in the heat building the border road And the mess don’t stop with just human affairs Please take a look at the lions and the bears Or the men who caught the jaguar they’re sworn to protect To find it dead weeks later, their collar round its neck The guard asks the woman for I.D. with a stare So she can take her kids and get over there To the place where she was born and her family resides Can’t be from two places with the world split into sides You can hear it over there But you can’t see it anywhere The sky is dim and the clouds are gone You’ll never see the break of another dawn Cause it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone It’s the Sunset Limited It’s the Sunset Limited It’s the Sunset Limited And it’s gone, gone, it’s gone, it’s gone

I was eighteen, you were one year younger We came uptown, no one could steal our thunder We went downtown Remember that time waiting for the bus? Please think hard, you surely must: We had to wait forever in the sun While we were standing there The people walking by would stare But you, you didn't care You'd only look at me Instead of waiting for that bus to come We could have struck out on the run Left all our clothes and gone downtown You laughed and smiled and pulled the sheets The lines and dips, your shape beneath Your beauty and your grace, kept me whole Midnight drives with the windows down You're fast asleep, without a sound All roads, they lead downtown Two years down the line I still wish you were mine I'd love to wait forever in the sun But now you are long gone And I don't even see the dawn. Instead I walk the streets of downtown The one last favor I'll ask of you Is: meet me on the avenue And treat me as the man that you knew. Treat me as the man that you knew As the man that I was, As the man that is gone.

What you don't know won't hurt you You hear a voice under your bed and see a monster staring back You let him be You hear a voice in your head but instead of screaming back Say it's just me What you don't know won't hurt you You've got your game face on now pull your gym shorts on Pick up the recess ball and chuck it at his head And you dream you've got the strength of Superman As your ball falls through his hand What you don't know won't hurt you You break your word like a rubber band and dodge the truth by twisting facts that you believe So write your name out in the sand Invite the tide to put it back And you can't breathe What you don't know won't hurt you So turn your stereo on and dance with ghosts 'til dawn And when the sun comes up you spoon the monsters in your bed And when you land from that flight with Peter Pan I hope you'll still hold my hand
