This Way
Track Listing:

Cutting through the darkest night are my two headlights
Trying to keep it clear, but I'm losing it here
To the twilight
There's a dead end to my left
There's a burning bush to my right
You aren't in sight
You aren't in sight

Do you want me
Like I want you?
Or am I standing still
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you
Passing my by

Mother's on the stoop
Boys in souped up coupes
On this hot summer night
Between fight and flight
Is the blind man's sight
And a choice that's right
I roll the window down
Feel like I'm
I'm gonna drown
In this strange town
Feel broken down
I feel broken down
Do you need me
Like I need you

Or am I standing still
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you
Passing my by

A sweet sorrow is
The call tomorrow
A sweet sorrow is
The call tomorrow

Do you love me Like I love you?

Or am I standing still
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still
Out of the corner
Of my eye
Was that you
Passing me by?

Are you passing me by?
Passing me by
Do you want me?
Passing me by

Do you need me
Like I need you too
And do you want me
Like I want you?
Passing me by

Are you passing me by Or am I standing still?




They say that Jesus loves you
What about me?
They say that money breaks you
I still wanna see
They say you're only half alive
Till you give extra whitening a try

Well i wanna seee, I wanna see
What can you do for me?

Showing ta-tas on the TV is OK
I wanna be OK,too
Having my pictue in a magazine makes me special
How special are you?
They say if i donate, even I
Can buy a lot in heaven before i die

Well I wanna see, I wanna see
What can u do for me?

I want someone else to pack my lunch
Gonna get get someone else to pull the punch
Pay a psychic for romance
Gonna pay a priest for a...
Will u give me a second chance
Will u give me a second chance

They say abortion will send u straight to a firey hell
That is if the fanatics don't beat satin to the kill
It's not what i can do for anybody
It's what there body can do for me

Well I wanna see, I wanna see
What can u do for me?

They say that Jesus loves u
What about me?




Mary heard boys talking in voices low
Said she weren't no spring chicken
Like she didn't already know
So she called up Jack from a few years back
She turned him down once in his one room shack
She said "Now baby, you don't look that bad"

[CHORUS:]
Cuz everybody needs someone sometime
Everybody needs someone, can't you see?
Everybody needs someone sometime

Spivy Leaks was a drip of a man
He looked like a potato shoved into jeans
He recollects it wasn't that long ago
That he could walk by
Make the young girls scream
But he thought he'd just let it all slide
Let it all pass
Cuz he thought love was best on the run
He said "Now baby, it don't seem that fun"

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
Hey there honeybee
Will you give me...sugar?
And if you shake real cute
I might give you some sugar
I was doin' alright on my own
Now I might just take you home sugar

Sister Mary used to be a nun
She thought that she'd retire and have her some fun
Mr. Joe of the Philadelphia Joes
Well he walked in the post office one night
He said "Hey sweetheart, you know you look alright"

[CHORUS to fade]




I will meet you

In some place
Where the light lends itself
To soft repose
I will let you undress me
But I warn you
I have thorns
Like any rose
And you could hurt me
With your bare hands
You could hurt me
With with the sharp end
Of what you say
But I'm lost to you now
And there's no
Amount of reason
That could save me
So break me
Take me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
I'll let you make me
Just let me
Feel your love again

Feels like being underwater
Now that I've let go
And lost control
Water kisses fill my mouth
Water fills my soul

So break me
Take me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
Make me
Just let me
Feel your love again

Kiss me once
Well, maybe twice
Oh, it never felt so nice
So break me
Take me
Let me
Feel your arms again
Break me
Make me
Just let me
Feel your arms again
Just let me
Feel your love again




Met her on a friday afternoon
In a neon dayglo pink
Chiffon satin room
She never looks back
She always looked good
Dressed in black
And she says oh
Do you want to play?

She lived beneath the
Disco discount store
With pictures of Randy Newman
Scattered all across the floor
I said "This place
Looks sort of desolate"
She said
"Are you only half alive?
Or have you always
Been this inarticulate?"

Oh
Do you want to play?

Don't think too hard
Don't think too fast
Don't ever give away
What you can't take back
Don't try to understand
What you can't comprehend
Underneath the disco neon
Daylight chandelier
Disco deity of the chivalry
I said "Take it back
Take it back
Take it back"

Oh
Do you want to play?

Oh
Do you want to play?




It's leaving time again
I'm headed out
With all my friends
It's a roll of the dice
I've never thought twice
About the way
I've been spending my time
Trying my guts out
For every dime
Working in an
Office building tall
You don't know
Who's next to you at all
But being out here
The blood, the guts, the beer
Is a test
Only time will tell
It brings you close, man
Closer than hell

We're leaving
Leaving again
Can't recall
Where are we've been
I guess we'll just go
Go till we're too old
Or we run out of road

The other day
I talked to Lou
He quit back in 92
Says he misses it bad
Those were the best time
He ever had
He said
"Give it hell to the end
'Cause once you quit
You can't get it back again"

We're leaving
Leaving again
Can't recall
Where are we've been
I guess we'll just go
Go till we're too old
Or we run out of road

Expensive cabs
And sh*tty food
Washed down
With cancelled flights
Missed wake-up calls, missed holidays
You miss your boy and wife
Oh the late night drives
The calls
The dawn to strike you
Like a knife
Hey man
This is a beautiful life

We're leaving
Leaving again

We're leaving
Leaving again
Can't recall
Where are we've been
I guess we'll just go
Go till we're too old
Or we run out of road

We're leaving
Leaving again
Can't recall
Where are we've been
I guess we'll just go
Go till we're too old
Or we run out of road




Mirror, mirror
Do you like
What you see?
I'll dance for you
If you dance for me
Who says a woman
Cannot serve?
It would be my pleasure
Who says it is
Not my destiny
To let you control me?
Underneath the disco light
Everybody's feelin' all right
Get on your hands and knees
And praise the new deity
Serve the ego
Serve the ego

Two ships sailing
On a neon sea
Eat the flesh
Spit out the seeds
Feathered hair
And lame heels
What turns me on
Is so surreal

Underneath the disco light
Everybody's feelin' all right
Get on your hands and knees
And praise the new deity
Serve the ego
Serve the ego

Tut tut, oh, to discover oh
Oh no, you're yesterday's lover

Underneath the disco light
Everybody's feelin' all right
Get on your hands and knees
And praise the new deity
Serve the ego
Serve the ego




Love be still
love be sweet
don't you dare
change a thing
I want to photograph you with my mind
To feel how I feel now all the time

[CHORUS]
Say that you'll stay
Forever this way
Forever and forever
That we'll never have to change
Don't move
Don't breathe
Don't change
Don't leave
And promise me
Say you'll stay
We'll stay
This way

I get afraid
Don't think ahead
Lets just stay
This way in bed
Feels so good inside your arms
Home is everywhere you are

[CHORUS]

Don't move
Don't breathe
Don't change
Don't leave
Promise me
We'll always be
This kind, this sweet
This good to me
Promise me
We'll always be

[CHORUS]




Went walking underneath the shadows
Where dark and sweet secrets lay
When night tonight falls gently down
Hearts helplessly fall to the ground
Underneath a velvet sky
Only words can lie

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
You're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today

Stewardesses like Cosmo magazine
Vogue makes me nervous I feel so plain
I could the world fearlessly
If you would face it here with me
Just our four hands and four eyes
Traffic cops would compromise

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
You're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today

[bridge]
Daffodils and roulette wheels and rusty automobiles
Somewhere our things share the same window sill
Somewhere our hearts exist independent of time
Somewhere we are whole
One body
One body and one mind

From the air things look so ridiculous
Our fears so small, our fights so vain
I wanna pilot a plane with you
So all our problems look small, too
It's only an inch from me to you
Depending on what map you use

I wanna tell you everything
I wanna make your toes curl
You be my only boy
And I'll be your only girl
There's not much I can say
Cuz you're in Cleveland today
Oh, you're in Cleveland today
You're in Cleveland today




A lonely street lamp
I'm out on the street walking home
A small pale blur
Leaving trails like a snail I move so slow
Time can bruise*violent indigo
Rush home to your arms
You soothe my weary soul

Wrong or right be mine tonight
Harsh world be damned we'll make a stand
Love can bind but mine is blind
Others stray, but I won't walk away
Walk away

The clubs are full
Of couples resisting being one
They wear their youth
Like badges that tarnish all too soon
But we'll be a team
Our two will be one
Love will be our fortress
When all else comes undone

Wrong or right be mine tonight
Harsh world be damned
We'll make a stand
Love can bind but mine is blind
Others stray, but I won't walk away
Walk away

Sometimes the world don't make sense
Small children filled with violence
Let our light
Shine through the night

Wrong or right be mine tonight
Harsh world be damned
We'll make a stand
Love can bind but mine is blind
Others stray, but I won't walk away
Walk away

I won't walk away




I saw you standing there
You had gold dust in your pocket and
You combed barbed wire
Through your hair
You thought I didn't notice
The skin on
Your teeth had a tear
To make me notice
You started to shout
Then you and all your minions
Started flapping your
Tiny arms all about
They said
You were a wise man
When did they teach
A wise man to pout?
I tried to forget you
but you tied bells to your name
They jingled everytime i thought of you
without shame
I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn't you do the same?
What's the matter?
Does your love need a home?
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
Your mother was a wolf bite
Your daddy was a cigarette
Your brother was a rose bud
Crossbreed with a car wreck
Your sister was a stockbroker
But you ain't nothing
But a turtleneck
whats the matter?
Does yout love need a home?
alright then!
love me just leave me alone.
I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn't you do the same?
What's the matter
Does your leave need a home?
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
It's not your little boys smile
It's not your little boys name
It's those big boy hands
That are the ones to blame
Well, I tried to be unlovable
Why couldn't you do the same?
What's the matter?
Does your love need a home?
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
What's the matter?
Does your love need a home
All right then, love me
Just leave me alone
Love me just leave me alone
Love me just leave me alone
Love me just leave me alone




You see the ghosts of the buffalo
Moving both fierce and slow
Like glittering prophesies
On the edge of the horizon

As you drive glittering highways
And beaten-up by-ways
That straddle and girdle
A great and many-faced nation

There are lambs in the ghettos
Who worship their Gapettos
Believing in, though never seeing
The strings they think bind them

So you write to our congressmen
With bleeding pens
Of the sorrow within
And in return they just send
Tickets to the latest Tom Hanks show

[CHORUS:]
Welcome to the new wild west
Each man for himself
A nation of civilized steeples
And lonely people
Welcome to the new wild west

There are so many fractions
And cue-card reactions
It's hard to keep clear
The possibilities here
'Cause there's no force to unite them

Privilege has ruled for thousands of years
Wars have been fought with bibles and tears
Yet liberation can't deny the temptation
And soon becomes the oppressor

Show me a leader who's fit to lead
Who don't sew his seed in anything
Wounded enough to breed
Because after all what fun is power
If you can't act like a rock star?

[CHORUS]

See me, I've been cruel
I've been petty and unkind
But I know my own mind
And since it seems clear
There's no one leading us here
The only thing left it appears
Is to task ourselves to be better each time
Then those before us

We'll be an army of thieves
Of self-freed slaves
Of mild-mannered maids
We'll fight with whispers and blades
So get ready, a new day is dawning

[CHORUS]




I hate you, I love you
Leave, please
Don't go away
Can't decide if
I like your face
Or if I wish
It would stray
You're a child but
You're malicious
You're sweet but
Don't remember my name
And heads you win
And tails I'm lost
And love equals pain

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambiguous region
A strange continent
Immune to all reason
And I'm flattered by
Your grey matter

Inside my skin
I feel your tongue
Telling me I'm dirty
And licking my bones
A surge against silence
A knife across a plate
Makes the sound
Of need on hate

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambigous region
A strange continent
Immune to all reason
And I'm flattered by
Your grey matter
And I do not understand
Why a woman can't
Just love a man

You're amusing
You're a real cool show
With your meat hooks
And barbed wire carnival
You got glitter in your pocket
You got mothballs in your soul
From too many false teeth
And greasy flash bulbs

I am drifting
Without an anchor
Through your ambiguous region
A strange continent
Immune to all reason
And I'm flattered by
Your grey matter

I love you
I hate you
