I know why they all went mad now I used to pretend But now’s come the day I must too leave this place now my friend Now’s come the day I must too leave this place now my friend I know why they all went mad now I am joining them To be a madman, to be a madman To be carpenter, to be a carpenter To be a soldier, to be a soldier To be a walrus, and a banana Oh Gloria, oh Gloria How sweet your grace does feel Oh Gloria, oh Gloria Belief is sweet but truth it is real

I'm leaving today Before it all starts to unravel And I am sentenced by the gavel And the world outside explodes I've discovered time travel (Oh) I've discovered how not to die And many other mysteries of life But none as sweet as you In a grave that I dug for myself Many years ago I left some instructions For a life I'll one day know Have I forgotten you (Ah) Or have we just met A sallow picture tucked in a pack of cigarettes Here and now this is all I have left And in that grave that I dug for myself On what feels like yesterday Many currencies of many different countries And many passports of many different names I've been here before (I've been here before) And I know what's next A sallow picture clutched deep against your chest Here and now is where I draw my last breath I've discovered time travel It's a cruel and hollow hall That only fools will wallow in Where does it start? Where does it end
3.
All my friends are dead Or lost their mind from shooting smack And every woman that I’ve loved Now hates my guts, won’t call me back I’m gone Even though I’m still here I’ve done all I can do And now my time is coming close Or what if I’ve already died And now I’m living as a ghost I’m gone Even though I’m still here Everybody’s coming to my party But I’m not fucking going to that party Everything you know Is a love your mind has borrowed There’s no time to break it down ‘Cause there may be no tomorrow So you’ve got to give your love Before your soul, it slips away And then you’re gone Even though you’re still here

Oh my god, your mama’s gonna kill me If we don’t stop knocking’ on your headboard baby I’m a fool A fool in love, she’s gonna cut me If we don’t stop knocking’ on your headboard baby I’m a fool A fool for the way that you move When we’re knock knock knockin’ on your headboard Baby oh my god Ba ba ba ba boing boing creak click crash! Knock knock knockin’ on your headboard baby Oh my god, your daddy’s gonna kill me If we don’t stop rustlin’ in the back barn baby I’m a fool A fool in love whose gotta look out For your crazy ass daddy and your crazy ass mama I’m a fool∑œ A fool for the way that you move When we’re knock knock knockin’ on your headboard Baby oh my god Ba ba ba ba boing boing creak click crash! Knock knock knockin’ on your headboard baby

I’m in your brain I’m in your heart I’m in your lungs Here from the start I’m in your mouth I’m on your tongue But you don’t know me I’m always here I always linger I’m at your feet I’m in your fingers I’m in your hair Between your toes But you don’t know me I reckon that I can cure cancer I got everything you want And everything you need And I’ve been all up in your body for a while Let go And let’s go… I am an anvil, falling from the sky I’m in your ears I’m in your eyes I’m in your braids I’m in your style I’m in your engine I’m in your suitcase But you don’t know me I’m in your mom I’m in your dad I can be good I can be bad I am the day I am the night But you don’t know me I reckon that I can get the night going I got everything you want And everything you need And I’ve been all up in your body for a while My name is soul I am an anvil, falling from the sky Don’t ask how, don’t ask why… I’m in your mind I’m in your vein I’m pleasure I’m pain I’m the sun I’m the rain I’m everything That you could want That you need All possibility But you don’t know me I was, I am Because I can I will, I breathe Through everything I fill the gap All up in that ass But you don’t know me

He lost his arm in a Mexican jail
She didin’t know where he was Counting the days in pecuuliar ways
Listening to the rain He didn’t know there were rules to this life
She didn’t know where he was When you don’t have anything at all You’ll be the one who takes the fall
You used to be so big But now you’re so small Make you’re escape before it is too late This is the day you’ll be free 
Life is a beach so we all must go swim Swim with the tide swim away
7.
You keep me waiting on the levy While you get ready on your own I’ve been ready for lord knows how long You keep me wrapped around your finger In an echelon that’s low But every leprechaun loves gold That State Street old money style I’m just a poor boy, and you a rich girl You say you wanna get your press pass And expose their awful truth But you lack the couth of a sleuth And your blowback’s gonna blow you Take it from a poor boy Flies ‘round the spigot Ain’t no polish on the spout And we don’t wanna hear no rich girl Run her rich girl mouth You’re a circus Baby, you’re a circus Sha bop bop boom Cartwheeling with no purpose You stole our alphabet And left us all wordless

I always seem to catch you With your head between your legs Petting the Earth’s fur like you do In the most peculiar ways Did you know I’m an astronaut? I can take you to the moon Fill up your interplanetary needs And baby, by the time that I’m through… You will be stuck In the belly of a shark Retire to the bedroom We don’t need to make it dark I’ll be leaving you one day Even if I don’t Want to break your heart You know that I will I’m a mother fucking mother fucker A god damn son of a bitch I ain’t good for nothing I’m the last name on your list I’m the last name that you will call ‘Cause I will let you down But nobody knows my body like you do Cut my flesh out pound for pound

I knew when I saw you on the side of the road Panting like a dog, tongue like a toad Life was going to go and get a little more tough Might as well go and rub your face in the mud Roll it around Slip between your fingers while you’re holding it down Gotta keep going, can’t look back I think about the champion trailing last I think about his title, and how it’d fell to be mine Then I cross the finish line Roll it around Slip between your fingers while you’re holding it down Someone get that homeless man a golden crown And roll it around, roll it around Everything I know is catching up to me Had a few too many and I’m bubbling Panting like a dog, I’m almost done Might as well go and rub my face in the mud Woe, we go, may the path be shameless Hit me, I don’t even know what your name is I can take it, I’ve been stung I’ll be home before the Hangman comes I’ll be home before the Hangman is here The Devil and I are going to drink a beer I’m riding on empty, but I’m moving up fast And by the time I’m done you’ll all be kissing my ass
10.
It’s been fun but I know I can’t stay here any longer I’ll hold my tears if you hold your smile and we float off in the distance I will never have another love like you
