Prepare the vessel and don't think twice 'Cause I've watched you wrestle with paradise Hold it in, winter weight Life begins we all get to speculate Surrender to me, and I'll to you We'll do the strange things that lovers do Here's a beast, back-to-back First the feast and then comes the heart attack We came to rock because we heard the call To make the mighty walls of Jericho fall And we came to rock so you could just relax But now I'm forced to ask if it is working... I've fought with muscle, I've fought with brains I've done the hustle, I've robbed a train Killed a man in Hollywood Brought him back to life just to show I could We speak of treasure, we speak of dreams These extreme measures and heavy creams Ash to ash, dust to dust Don't know who to trust but trust us 'Cause we came to rock the hardest of them all To make the mighty walls of Jericho fall And we came to rock so you could just sit back Regardless of the fact of whether it's working...

I went to a party To see what might start me I left all alone, but they told me play on, play on Enlisted at bucknell To learn how to fuck well I studied for days, hoping I could play on, play on Play on, I wanted to Play on, even if your heart don't want to We wait for the moment when the stars align To spill all our secrets over bottles of wine Don't be afraid of disappointment It's the rule of the road when your love is by appointment We pray to the heavens that our hearts won't break And praise our physicians for the drugs we take Don't throw the fly out with the ointment You've gotta keep it strong So baby play on I french kissed a demon Her lips started steamin' I ran for the hills but she made me play on, play on I hitched to Tacoma With eight bucks and six lipomas And took on the world with a cry of play on, play on Play on, I wanted you Play on, even when my heart said not to We pour all our hopes into a room that's dark Where cakes tend to melt like it's MacArthur Park This is your chance for retribution You can keep it alive with a stay of execution I promised your dad I'd have you home by nine So warm up the kitten with a ball of twine You got some problems, here's solutions You've gotta keep love strong so baby play on There's no easy way in There's no easy way in There's no easy way

I could barely speak When the sun began to peek From the clouds Shout out loud In her honor The citadel's in reach All we need is storm the beach Flag held high You and I If you wanna today Evergreens Stones and streams Sins you've failed to mention Holding fast To the last hours Spent in your attentions Adirondack Couldn't bring you back To the place where you belong Someone's listening For the song you sing In the place where you belong The evidence was clear All the things you once held dear Under soil Where you toiled In the silence You put it all on tape What you killed but can't escape Every lie Cut and dried In the violence of day Evergreens Stones and streams Sins you've failed to mention Holding fast To the last hours Spent in your attentions Adirondack Couldn't bring you back To the place where you belong Someone's listening For the song you sing In the place where you belong

Where was the promise that you showed us all those many years ago I wouldn't ask but there are several people who would like to know It's been a long time coming The quicker the answer and the sooner everyone will let you go Now that you see the road you're on Take it from me You'll never reach the end until you go Go blonde I think it's obvious that I don't really have the right to speak Like anyone I do my share of shameful things within a week It's like a month of sundays Tally it up and any one of us can be ordained a freak Now that you see the road you're on Take it from me You'll never reach the end until you go Go blonde Filed the sounds of every girl you made in cramped automobiles Always returning with reports of every whisper gasp and squeal A Kerouac with a bad back Deepest apologies that I could never seem to be your Neal Now that you see the road you're on Take it from me You'll never reach the end until you go Go blonde

When I hear tales about your younger days I can't relate... I can't Electric acid and a purple haze And other misbegotten plans But every word you speak Fails to synthesize Kisses by the creek Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes Tell me 'bout that same sad story Same sad story Same sad story tonight We all throw pennies in the wishing well And say our prayers... our prayers And I know that there's a place reserved in hell For every kid who doesn't care But every word you speak Fails to synthesize Kisses by the creek Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes Tell me 'bout that same sad story Same sad story Same sad story tonight I won't interrupt this time Though by now we're just running our lines Playing our roles Turning it over and over The cat's away, the mice will quake with fear I know just how they feel I've held these feelings like they're souvenirs To prove that what I felt was real But every word you speak Fails to synthesize Kisses by the creek Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes Tell me 'bout that same sad story Same sad story Same sad story tonight Every word you speak I can't sympathize Kisses by the creek Parties where the smoke gets in your eyes Tell me 'bout that same sad story Same sad story Same sad story tonight

My country tis of thee Sweet land of libertines I hope That when they bring the crown You're smart enough to turn it down The boy prince to the vest keeps close The last wishes of his father's angry ghost That he should fight and win For flag, country and his kith and kin He's waiting for you Big as the southern sky Great as the mountains high Remind me once again Where I end and you begin We're made in America And sentenced to cherish 'ya always Those bones you came across Are just the framework for a man who's lost his way And never made it back It's much safer when you move in packs But secret societies Have got my number and they're calling me at home For their recruitment drive Golden apples held by secret wives They're waiting for you Big as the southern sky Great as the mountains high Remind me once again Where I end and you begin Big as the southern sky Great as the mountains high Remind me once again Where I end and you begin We're made in America And sentenced to cherish 'ya always We hold these truths to be Self-evident and fancy free oh-oh

Traveling on the roads we know about, dark and winding The republic throws its weight around, finally finding love I'm a spook for several agencies, known and unknown But we know that some contingencies are better left alone Wait just a minute, we should reflect On the MX missile that's live and direct To the heart of the republic or at least what's left We get down Where there's smoke there's fire and other things, most unsavory If i poke around what's smoldering, would you blame me, no Wait just a minute, we should reflect On the MX missile that's live and direct To the heart of the republic or at least what's left We get down So pleasin' Free from the change of seasons To the republic, un-split, who's been keeping you warm

I'm in love with a ghost In love with a ghost With bright blue eyes and pale grey skin That lets you see all that's within I may be keeping him from heaven but the alternative's far worse Now I'm in love with a ghost and I hope I'm his first I'm in love with a girl In love with a girl With jet black hair and blood red lips You almost could just take a sip Keeping me tethered to a world that I departed long ago But I'm in love with a girl and all systems are go Nobody told me that there'd be deaths like these I'm in love with a ghost In love with a ghost By haunting me he shows he cares Then vanishes into thin air Leaving me sticky with his ectoplasm nearly every day 'Cause I'm in love with a ghost and I like him that I'm in love with a ghost and I like him that way I'm in love with a girl and she likes me this way

Where do you go when you feel low And how do you shed it Eager to fight this appetite And ways that you whet it We do the best we can The invitation stands, so we Move to the left, fake to the right And head down the middle I've got a hunch, I'm getting lunch Straight from the sex griddle We do the best we can The invitation stands for these Cold hands I wake up to find the meaning of your cold hands It's enough to stop me breathing oh your cold hands I can't help but keep believing in your cold hands Shivers and chills, say what you will The medium's the message A secret attack, give him the rack Until he confesses We do the best we can The invitation stands, so we Take it to heart, you fit the part So why don't you play it? And sing out Louise, but if you please Say it and don't spray it We do the best we can The invitation stands for these Cold hands I wake up to find the meaning of your cold hands It's enough to stop me breathing oh your cold hands I can't help but keep believing in your cold hands I can hardly wait

There is mischief in your eyes Lying dormant 'til the time is right We cut our teeth on nine-to-fives Kept our noses clean and collars white You fought the fight To like the love you make These city lights They are the candles on your thirtieth birthday cake First the shuck and then the jive Bells are ringing to begin the chase I'm reminded I'm alive Every morning when I see your face You fought the fight To like the love you make These city lights They are the candles on your thirtieth birthday cake
