Anything We Want

Original and similar lyrics
My cheeks were reflecting the longest wavelength My fan was folded up and grazing my forehead And I kept touching my neck To guide your eye to where I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone. My scars were reflecting the mist in your headlights I looked like a neon zebra shaking rain off her stripes And the rivulets had you riveted to the places that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone And then we can do anything we want And then we can do anything we want And then we can do anything we want We started out sipping the water And now we try to swallow the wave And we try not to let those bastards get us down We don't worry anymore cause we know when the guff comes we get brave After all, look around It's happening, it's happening, it's happening now Let's pretend we're eight years old playing hookey I'll draw on the wall and you can play UFC rookie Then we'll grow up Take our clothes off And you remind me that I wanted you to kiss me when we find some time alone And then we can do anything we want And then we can do anything we want And then we can do anything we want And then we can do anything we want

Hunting (The Universe Breaks My Heart)

ABANDONED POOLS "Armed To The Teeth"
Ginny I know what love is now I know what we could be This time it will be different This time you'll be happy Stupid twisted irony You know what your heart is worth Cause I'm the one who trampled it And pushed it in the dirt In time we'll see what grows I've been hunting through forests through the fields I've been sailing across the raging seas I've been scaling the mountains I have got to find a way to bring you home Ginny I know what love is now Give your heart for me to keep This time I wont ruin your life Or drink myself to sleep Maybe we could settle down And plant a tiny family tree I'll rid myself of what troubles me And set my little mind free In time we'll see what grows I've been hunting through forests through the fields I've been sailing across the raging seas I've been scaling the mountains I have got to find a way to bring you home I've been building the tallest sky-scrapers I've been spinning the earth the other way I've been adding the numbers I have got to find a way to bring you home Ginny I know what love is now I know what we could be For what it's worth I love you If its just too late for me I've got only me to blame I've got only me to blame I've been hunting through forests through the fields I've been sailing across the raging seas I've been scaling the mountains I have got to find a way to bring you home I've been building the tallest sky-scrapers I've been spinning the earth the other way I've been adding the numbers I have got to find a way to bring you home In time we'll see what grows In time we'll see what grows

Pisser

I MOTHER EARTH "Scenery And Fish"
Lost all my friends pulling down my Pants just to say hi and I'm still Alive without a tan, trippin', naked man, Through the forest who like me Has fallen right into a kind of grace Drinking from a river of fine wine just To ease my mind, then fell on through The hole I've made looking for a center In my life and just why I am I woke in the grass fascinated with Moving water and the smell of my breath Rampaging ants carry me to death or a last Chance and a swing for the fence, instead I Hit the bottom hard and wide looking for Escape from the daylight and the passing time Digging just to find a way someone like me Gets in the right line for the right ride At just the right time, hoping it doesn't take Too long to find a way... And I hope there's a sign I hope that it leads me well On the way I hope there's a sign And I hope I can read it right I'm running on, over and lower It's slow going half the time I hope there's a sign And I hope I can read it right It seems I've had a lifelong headcold full Of negatives, mindwarps and eclipsing suns Like hot air through my underwear while Sitting in my chocolate chair at home... It thrills me, turn the lights out and leave Me alone

No Man's Land

JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY "John Michael Montgomery"
That house on the hill is long gone. Now she's living in a trailer with an AstroTurf lawn. Got three little kids and no one to help. Trying to be Momma and Daddy all by herself. It's hard to hold down the fort when you're holdin down a job, she'd rob Peter to pay Paul, but he's already been robbed. She gets the food on the table, the clothes off the line. She'd break down and cry but she doesn't have time. [Chorus] She's gotta be strong, life goes on, though it's nothin' like she had planned. She's gonna be okay, gonna find a way, living in no man's land. Every now and then late at night she thinks of how it would feel to hold someone tight. And there's a guy down at work who keeps callin' her up. But she ain't ready for none of that stuff. She's still sifting through the ashes of a love that's been and gone, looking for a clue, trying to find out what went wrong. It ain't always easy, but she knows she's gotta try every time she looks in her babies' eyes. [Chorus]

Conscience Point

BILLY SQUIER "Creatures Of Habit"
Freedom rider...though you've tried Words are not enough for you now... It's hard on your pride I can't find you...though I know you You are just a step out of line... Come closer to me When the lines are drawn And no one comes to break us down And the walls that stood between us Tumble to the ground It's time to find someone to run to I've got a place in mind It's known as conscience point It's where the clouds roll by They say that nothin' really matters I'm goin' out to find Why people come this way And put the past behind You know there really is a reason Changing faces...trading places Nothing lasts anymore...it's hard when you try Star-crossed lovers run for cover I don't know if it's right...but I know how I feel When you're tired of all those things You never said before And although you've tried you never opened that door It's time to find someone to run to We'll run the roads tonite We'll meet at conscience point I look into your eyes You say that nothin' really matters If I could change your mind If you would look my way And leave it all behind You'd know you really mean so much to me When you've tired of all those things You've never done before And you never took the time To fall in love before You've got to find someone to...yea We'll run the roads tonite We'll meet at conscience point I'll look into your eyes And know that somethin' really matters 'Cause we can change our minds And we can find our way And leave it all behind 'Cause you really mean that much to me Conscience point...take a walk with me And put it all behind We'll make some history

Millie Fell Off The Fire Escape

ATMOSPHERE "Leak At Will"
[Slug] She dropped the gun and started running down the corridor She found the exit to get out that department store She reached full sprint when she hit the parking lot She didn't see police, not even any rent-it-cops She ran across the street and went behind the Applebee's From there she could see those abandoned factories Figured there's a good place for her to hide away Knowing she could climb inside through the fire escape At this point, still felt like a dream In her head she could still hear the little kid's screams Leaning up against the dumpster to find some breath She could hear the sirens, now it's time to step Running through the alleyway now relentless Bobbing in between houses, hopping fences Only two more blocks till the overpass The adrenaline is rendering a panic attack Maybe she should go back and explain it all Maybe the best thing to do now is take that fall Ain't no way that they won't understand Daddy's little girl is never gonna hurt again She can't believe that she's having this dilemma Tryna find a reason that she shouldn't go surrender She's a kid and a first time offender Plus he had it coming, hell it's colder in December Decided she would make it to the vacant warehouse From there she could try to get her head to clear out She needs a minute to sit and think Some time to reflect on these events and let 'em sink There's the building, it's empty she hopes to God The fire escape is on the back near the loading dock The next chapter to the happy ever after Wrapped her little fingers round the cold metal ladder Started climbing, that's when she heard the officer "Millie turn yourself in now girl, come down from there" She tried to look over her shoulder Lost balance, fell four stories, it was over
