JACK'S MANNEQUIN lyrics

Wrecking Ball Heart

Original and similar lyrics
Paper chain is dwindling We don't talk much anymore Everything's forgiven Fingertips at rest once more You had your suspicion I never gave you true romance In light of your ambition You stock pile ammunition Though you never had a fighting chance Just like an intruder now You come and leave so quietly You barely crack the door Am I just confused Or did our hearts that beat so wild and free Forget who they beat for? Red light just stopped blinking Tied down but my hands are free Some nights I still think of you My digital calamity Oh you were never real to me Just like an intruder now You come and leave so quietly You barely cracked the door Am I just confused Or did our hearts that beat so wild and free Forget who they beat for? Ours is a mad mad heartache And mine is a wrecking ball heart Ours is a mad mad heartache And mine is a wrecking ball heart Oh I I can't be stopped Sometimes the wrecking ball drops I tear this house down to build it back up Ours is a mad mad heartache And mine is a wrecking ball heart Ours is a mad mad heartache And mine is a wrecking ball heart Just a wrecking ball heart Just like an intruder You come and leave so quietly You barely cracked the door Am I just confused Or did our hearts that beat so wild and free Forget who they beat for?

Caroline

Danny Kirwan "Hello There Big Boy"
Oh Caroline you haunt me so This tangled heart of mine Wants to be free of you To start my life anew Caroline You took your lips to other guys Those lips that once touched mine Why don't you set me free Don't go on hurting me Caroline Oh devil lady with a heart of steel And flashing eyes of youth Don't make it hard on me Become a memory Caroline You're worlds away is a constant high Please spare a thought for me You let your love run wild How sad I feel inside Caroline

My Devil Was A Cheat

JOEL FAVIERE
I'm blacking your lungs I'm the shit that's on top of your tongue I know I'm cancerous If I was a question bitch you'd never answer this So what about the boy that you've been dancing with? Why the fuck would you answer him? Remember when I was Rocky you were Emily And there was nothing stopping you from fucking me just like a felony And you were always telling me the devil on your shoulder was a cheat My angel was a freak she made my heart beat she was all I ever need Remember this that one whore plus two whores equal bedroom floors And I need to figure out my heart beat again so I could get some sleep I go crazy crazy for you...

Paprika Plains

JONI MITCHELL "Don Juan's Reckless Daughter"
It fell from midnight skies It drummed on the galvanized In the washroom, women tracked the rain Up to the make-up mirror Liquid soap and grass And Jungle Gardenia crash On Pine-Sol and beer ... It's stifling in here ... I've got to get some air ... I'm going outside to get some air Back in my hometown They would have cleared the floor Just to watch the rain come down! They're such sky oriented people-- Geared to changing weather ... I'm floating off in time I'm floating off I'm floating off in time When I was three feet tall And wide eyed open to it all With their tasseled teams they came To McGee's General Store All in their beaded leathers I would tie on colored feathers And I'd beat the drum like war ... I would beat the drum like war I'd beat the drum I'd beat the drum like war But when the church got through They traded their beads for bottles Smashed--on Railway Avenue And they cut off their braids And lost some link with nature I'm floating into dreams I'm floating off I'm floating into my dreams I dream paprika plains Vast and bleak and God forsaken Paprika plains And a turquoise river snaking (Where crows gaze--vigilant on wires Where cattle graze the grasses Far from the digits of business hours The moon clock wanes and waxes-- But here all time is stripped away Nowhere on these plains Is a sprout or an egg in evidence To measure loss or gain ... Only a little Indian band Come down from some windy mesa No women to make them food and child No expressions on their faces I'm low in a helicopter And the wind from whirling blades Flaps their woven blankets And flags their raven braids How came they to this emptiness? How came they to this dream? How came I to this view From a flying machine Of earth and air and water And a band of Indian men Without herds or flocks or crops Or families or fires to tend? Like a phoenix up from ashes now A blanket figure springs With a fist raised up to turquoise skies Like liberty And at the point of vanishing Where the sky and the earth meet A bomb blooms Deadly mushroom White Gold Heat Like a phoenix up from ashes Up from violent mysteries And growing 'till the giant blast Is to it like a golfer's tee there comes a child's beach ball And memory takes me back to the beach to toss it up to the garage to get it patched A pink and yellow beach ball Rolling Grand Detached Turning the blues and greens of earth From space probe photographs I float out of the hovercraft Naked as infancy And weightless And drifting Horizontally Like a filing to a magnet Like the long descent of rain I am drawn I fall against the ball And lose paprika plains I suckle at my mother's breast I embrace my mother earth I remember perforated blinds Over the crib of my birth And just as Eve succumbed To reckless curiosity I take my sharpest fingernail And slash the globe to see Below me-- Vast Paprika plains And the snake the river traces And a little band of Indian men With no expressions on their faces.) The rain retreats Like troops to fall on other fields and streets Meanwhile they're sweet talking and name calling And brawling on the fringes of the floor I spot you through the smoke With your eyes on fire From J B and coke As I'm coming through the door I'm coming back I'm coming back for more! The band plugs in again You see that mirrored ball begin to sputter lights And spin Dizzy on the dancers Geared to changing rhythms No matter what you do I'm floating back I'm floating back to you!

She Is Free

JEFF BUCKLEY
Cold wind blow this waiting blood, Flow into my ashen arms. Ice stream prick my sleeping skin. She is like the so black time, Race on in and never go away. She's just like this wind. Black Car, with your creaking wheel, Take away these thoughts of mine. Once there was a crazy man Staring from his drunken eyes, Staring stony into her elbow's way Stared at me and tellin' me, 'Stead of 'oh, poor lonely me, I claw the bed and I claw my hair. Oh black car, with your creaking wheel, Take away these thoughts of mine. Pictures sing in rhythm with 'em. Dig the holes for me to sleep inside. She is free, A shadow crossing the sky, Free from hope and this misery. She's beautiful, so beautiful away from me. She is free. She is free. Instead of me is this creaking wheel, Take away these thoughts of mine Pictures sing in rhythm with 'em Dig the holes for me to sleep inside Black car, with your creaking wheels Take away these thoughts of mine Catch us sing in rhythm with 'em. Dig both holes for me to sleep inside She is free. Shadow crossing the sky. Free from hope and this misery. So beautiful away from me. She is free. She is free

Irony

JONNY DIAZ "Everyday God"
Always liked grass to be green, but I just can't take the rain it seems sometimes And that's how it is with You and me, I hate the very things I need sometimes It's like a thousand pounds of irony come crashing down on top of me the day I learned what it means to be free A heart that is enslaved to You, two feet that remain chained to You and follow You wherever You may lead Oh, and then You'll see a heart that's free Well it might just be stupidity, but I know my pride can swallow me sometimes And I know You know much more than me, but I forget that fact so easily sometimes Oh, but now I see Your plans for me Oh, and now I know the grand scheme Just 'cause I want it doesn't mean I need it 'cause I know You've got the best for me I may not know what, I may not see it, but help me see You through the irony Lord, give to me, oh, a heart that's free Chain me now to You Lord, give to me, oh, a heart that's free Enslaved to Your truth
