Acid rain, help me fade away. Marble face, help me stay the same. All your saviors line them up on some side at a road stop. Could you name them? Do you give them up to the town cops? You're a darkness, you bring your darkness. Pull up your car, park it outside my house I hope you're wrong. I feel connected to something strange and strong. Acid Rain, help me stay the same. Marble Face, help me fade away.

When I cite the cliché of a free life I don't contend that it comes with no price. Draw my blood like fleas and head lice. Draw it in blood make it burn white in black light. I was wrong Always wrong No one ever says to you, You can't complain about these things And even if we found our way, Our way was found it was not made. I would give up now. Just lay it down and kick the crown. Breaking all my toes, you could give it away but no one knows. There lies my bed, Incriminated. Now I lie in the wreck I created. In torrents we spin my tornado-like friend, built homes that we obliterated.

Bastion of beasts heed my call. All things base are not banal. To suck the wind and gnaw the tide is not enough to stay alive. So remind me why I'm here again? I hate the old Ohio wind. It kills you when it's coming in, it kills you pending giving in. And don't I know, its residue collects in my bones. It's marrow curdling it singes my toes in my sleep. But son, even if you stay, you know nothing would stay the same way. And if there's any other way could we try that way instead of this one? So if God's own and only kid showed up and wound up dead what's that say about all this? You could raise all my dead friends in hopes I would notice. Just some means to a dead end. Just some mean, as in average. You could praise until your heart bends, and still not quite get it. Are we together alone? Or alone together? I stayed in my room all day mustering some meager praise. They say a thing don't fit its phrase It's symptomatic of this place.

I saw the light I turned it off I saw the light It hurt my eyes So how come when you say I want to live for that time next year you don't? And how come when you say I want to die by that time next year you don't? How could anything be worth this? How could anything be worthless? This is why you always run. I can't explain it. I saw the light. And it burned my eyes out. Nothing is wrong until you find yourself out. Wrong all along. I saw the light I turned it off

Sailing 'long the shadowy bay. I can't remember what to say. I love you. He loves you more. So jump from this ship and swim to shore. Go forth child, scream and yell. And save those troubled souls from the depths of hell. I know that I want you here. But so does he. I understand. I need you. He needs you more. So dive from this ship and swim to shore.

I remember now it was sometime in July. She blew me away like spit from an eye. She was the bluest glass I'd ever find. I was the blackest hole she'd ever find. And I went down around, Down on my electric knees. Yeah I went down around Wishing that we'd never meet. How are we alive? How are we alive still? Flowers in an ice storm When I'm gone for way too long, and I don't mind the thought of dying without you. If I could play eight notes for you they'd be.

I've been round here second time I don't recognize my own home When I found my home in you I don't recognize you no more When you come to take my soul Take it far away

If I was only a little younger, slightly softer with vastly wider eyes Then I could tell you what I've been meaning to, that our redemption is also our demise Don't you remember no bridge is tall enough? And stairs that beckon that we go rolling down? We'd poke our toes out We'd let our heads drop Let's fall forever Let's never hit the ground So what if I move to some other city? Some place that's far away and strange? I'd never know you I never knew you That's what I'm doing Grow up em(and)brace the change But you know you're just not 17 And you cry your self to sleep in your attempts to conjure up old dreams and repeat You could never be strong You could only be free

I was missing missing dogs I should've given you some thought Wring the goose's neck Stretch him out on the boat deck Wandering eye dilate And if you die of light Is that overexposed or underclothed? So oh my God when you take me Or Oh my God if you take me down Can we forget about this? Take a break for a couple of years Just hang out for a couple of years and if it endures You know it's pure But what if I return and I'm empty? Am I really wrong for heat seeking? When I went to sleep when I was 17 You know I'd go to sleep all knowing I was missing missing dogs I should've given you some thought I was breathing divine wind I was humming human hymns I'll never get over him

Wade on I could never look you in the eyes again. All these things would then begin to rise again. How come I only want the things that I don't have? I'm happy until I get what I want in my grasp. If you could only be one age for all your life I wouldn't turn one year older or otherwise. You were right about everything you said. You were right about everything you did. Wait on

And in my eagerness preempting sacrifices In hopes that some divine benevolent being or otherwise would see me and take pity maybe have mercy or something (for)giving something something or other for nothing But you know? Nothing feels so bad. Save ornery sun rays burn straight through my straw hat rage blister my snow skin Hairpin and I go away If I lay down I'm never getting up With my head half gone will I carry on? or With my head half gone am I carrion?

My brother's born on Christmas My brother's born on Easter God was my half brother and God, I'd like to meet her Yeah our cheeks are similar Yeah we've got the same nose His hands, well I'm not sure How'd he get those? Some kind of divine hybrid I wonder who's recessive allelomorphs expressed to make your neck so freckled?
