    ANYBODY ANYMORE

    jamie comes home with her face bashed in
    her sister looks her over with a mischievous grin
    “so you went to get screwed by him again,
    you’re so fucking crazy.”

    jessie’s at the bar with her ears still wet
    she talks real hard so the hustlers forget
    she ain’t even got a driving license yet
    she’s still just a baby

    doesn’t anybody wanna know what the hell’s goin’ on?
    doesn’t anybody ever notice when something’s gone wrong?
    doesn’t anybody believe in love anymore?

    jenny asked the preacher what the good lord said
    his hand went up her skirt said he could show her instead
    said if he could have her writhing in his bed
    she’d be a believer

    jimmy told his daddy that he thought he was gay
    his daddy told him that he’d go to hell one day
    jimmy said he’d rather choose that price to pay
    than be a deceiver

    he...

    BACKSIDE (NOT YOUR BABY GIRL)

    Please don’t think me civilized
    Please don’t leave me patronized
    Please don’t think I’ll compromise
    I’m not your baby girl

    Please don’t try to analyze me
    You can’t help but fantasize
    But I won’t buy your sack of lies
    I’m not your baby girl

    I’m a woman on the run
    I have so much to be done
    Purpose is my number one
    I’m not your baby girl

    Don’t tell me I’m out of line
    I can’t mend your broken mind
    But watch me break your paradigm
    I’m not your baby girl

    You can’t see me
    You couldn’t if you tried
    You’re luck if you catch a shadow of my backside.

    BOXCAR

    bending back
    over the burden
    of crossings and crosses
    burning my fortunate eyes
    and if i could i surely would
    breathe a little lighter
    but i’m overcome

    terror takes
    too many hands to
    make me believe what the
    looking glass tells me i fear
    and if i could i surely would
    fight a little harder
    but i’m overcome

    empty eyes
    once filled with crystals and reverie
    and love for their fathers
    broken backs
    under the weight of it all
    and if i could i surely would
    stand dream a little wider
    yeah, if i could i surely would
    stand a little taller
    but i’m overcome

    BROKEN WINGS

    put your head in the mouth
    of your failure
    and let’s see if you survive

    put your head in the mouth
    of your fear and doubt
    and let’s watch you try to stay alive

    i’ll put my face in the mirror
    i’ll reflect what I see
    cause so much of what you are
    is what i want to be

    put your head in the mouth
    of my witness, of my love
    and let’s see if we can finally
    watch our sunrise

    i have walked on this journey
    for a long time now
    but i can still taste the burden
    of this exile

    so if i break, if i shatter,
    if i leak out on the ground
    you just drink from the waters
    of the wild

    if you make me a promise
    and you walk at my pace sometimes
    we won’t beg any pardon
    for who we’re gonna be

    i put my head in the mouth
    of this kindness, of this rest
    so we can see if we will finally
    watch our sunrise

    We can sing
    With br...

    BURN IN THE FIRE

    are you a catcher of the song
    or do you hold your heroes far too long
    are you a helpless little man
    or is the a fire in your hand

    well the flame don’t cast a shadow when it burns
    and the shame don’t pass for shallow when it churns
    and you make the heart hallowed when you learn

    you wanna shine brighter
    if you wanna shine brighter
    you’re gonna have to burn in the fire
    if you wanna climb higher
    you’re gonna have to burn in the fire

    how many secrets can you hold
    before you know your story must be told
    are you a tired little girl
    or have you yet to light the world

    well the earth don’t feel the tremble when it turns
    but the ash might turn to ember when it yearns
    you can carry what you kindle when you learn

    so if you wanna shine brighter
    you’re gonna have to burn in the fire
    if you wanna climb hi...

    DELIVERANCE, I WILL NOT SLEEP THROUGH MY OWN

    I will not sleep through my own deliverance
    I will not sleep through my own deliverance
    and if I should die may it only be to ignorance
    cuz I will not sleep through my own deliverance

    if I should pass out may I wake up to my negligence
    cuz i will not sleep through my own deliverance

    When I was born I was pure-bred for foolishness
    When I was young I was spoon-fed sheer fearfulness
    and now that I’m grown I must stand up on my own
    and i will not sleep through my own deliverance.

    said when I could see, I could see only innocence
    when I could feel, I could feel through to tenderness
    and now that i’m blind, I screw it up all the time
    but I will not sleep through my own deliverance

    DRIFTIN’

    Well I may seem strange to you now

    Or maybe just a little too lonely
    Time has brought me here to the place
    Where I aim to just lay down and die

    And I never really seem to fit in

    I just spend my time driftin’
    Yeah, I never really seemed to fit in
    
I’ve just spent my time driftin’

    You may say why give in

    There are lights, there are dreams, there are lives to lived

    And I’ve lived them all over again
    
But i still find myself driftin’

    
If I live them all over again and again

    I’ll still find myself driftin’
driftin’ away
    
driftin’ away

    And I may never see you again

    Just picture me I’ll be driftin’
    
Yeah i may never see you again
    
But you can bet your life I’ll be driftin’

    driftin’ away

    driftin’ away

    GET YER GUNS

    Well I lost my gun for killing,
    But I got it back the next day–
    Yeah I’ve always been a little crazy,
    Mama said I was just born that way…

    And I try to do what is right
    Yes I try to do what is right
    But things are not so right
    In my head

    Chorus:
    Get yer guns, boys,
    Get yer guns, girls,
    Get yer guns– let’s go to town
    Get yer guns, boys,
    Get yer guns, girls,
    Get yer guns and stand your ground!
    Ta ru li yay!

    Well it started with the voices
    Then it turned into a tick
    And then I caught the paranoia,
    And I just had to feel the kick

    And I try to do what is right
    Yes I try to shoot what is right
    But the kill puts up a fight
    In my head

    Chorus

    So I went to get my neighbor
    Then he went to get his AK

    Then we walked down to the police station
    Told ‘em to take off for the day,

    Then we took off for...

    EVERYDAY

    everyday in my house
    is like a thousand songs
    and every heartbeat is a chance
    to right a thousand wrongs

    every lifetime tells another possibility
    every wrinkle in time shows a future memory
    every lifeline holds a new reality
    every star shines on another version of me

    will i be a pot head?
    would i be better off dead?
    would i use a gun or a knife?
    will i be a hot head?
    would you hear a word i said?
    will i be a man to raise a hand to my wife?

    will i be blind?
    will i be kind?
    will i find i can move mountains with my mind?
    will i know myself a child of god and love
    will that be enough?

    see every heartbeat is just another possibility
    every sunrise saves me from obscurity
    everyday.

    everyday in my house
    is like a thousand songs
    and every heartbeat is my chance
    to find where i belong

    every place i ...
