JEWEL lyrics - Goodbye Alice In Wonderland

A Long Slow Slide

Original and similar lyrics
Lights are bright in the circus The geeks and the freaks all light cigarettes and laugh at your misery While the white of the curtain closing crushes your heart The inertia of loneliness tears your flesh apart It's a long slow slide It's a long slow slide It's a long slow slide Down Once the neon is gone There's still that golden splinter at your side His manners are charming But who are you fooling You're still nobody's bride And Bukowski's widow Haunts each empty seat on the ferris wheel As ghoulish lovers collide in a collage of kisses that they steal It's a long slow slide It's a long slow slide It's a long slow slide Down And outside your window you can see the circus it's lurching with rings of smoke You laugh halfheartedly at the punchline Not realizing they've made you the joke And inside you're heart a war is raging A region still untamed The worst fear I can imagine is for the mystery to be named Is for the mystery to be named It's a long slow slide It's a long slow slide It's a long slow slide Down

Let Her Go

DAN FOGELBERG "Windows Walls"
A bad situation Right from the start She played me for a fool And she broke my heart An infatuation A hard loss to take But we all must make our own mistakes. Let her go I knew I had to let her go You know it wasn't easy It was painfully slow But I swear I finally let her go. All of these feelings Were so long ago I haven't felt a thing since I let her go But you don't believe it You still have your doubts And while you do the tension mounts. Let her go You know you got to let her go You know it's never easy It's painfully slow But you know you got to Let her go. I will not deny it I tried to hold on But human hearts can only stay broke so long I told you the truth How much more can I do Now, my love, it's up to you. Let her go You know you got to let her go You know it's never easy It's painfully slow But you know you got to Let her go. Let her go You know you got to let her go You know it's never easy It's got to be slow But you know you go to Let her go.

Freeze Dried (F)

LOCAL H "As Good As Dead"
Abusive excuses are all I have to hold Use and re-use to explain why I'm so cold One for headaches One for stress But the one for fear's the one I like best Abusive excuses they save me everytime The slow slide down You never can see it The slow slide down You always believe it Destructive impulses and cowardice and lies Buzzing back to life like freeze dried flies Flies for love and flies for sex But the flies for fear are flies I like best Impulsive destruction is where my talent lies The slow slide down You're trying to change me It's all my fault But you never blame me It's in everything we do One for love and one for sex But the one for fear's the one I like best This act is a bore but it makes me who I am The slow slide down You never can see it My act is a bore You always believe it It's in everything we do

Who Else

MICK JENKINS "The Water[s]"
[Chorus:] Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't felt it like this in a long time Take yo shoes off at the door And the flow stay clean for a long time, long time Southside nigga from the go So many times in the wrong place at the wrong time Double cup the water sip slow Double cup the water sip slow Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't heard it like this in a long time Take yo shoes off at the door And the flow stay clean for a long time, long time Southside nigga from the go So many times in the wrong place at the wrong time Double cup the water sip slow Double cup the water sip slow Tell me who else do you know Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't heard it like this Know that you ain't heard it like this Know that you ain't heard it like this I ain't Never been a loner Although I feel like Jonah in the ocean Conversations with the big fish Danny ocean what a gamble they could miss this I pray that you don't An olive branch symbolized that the water had stopped Like if you got trees and truths before the waters had dropped I know you saw signs Black Mel Gibson with the passion I been gifted with the rapping Niggas tripping I been trapping Gotta move so many keys to unlock the boxes we trapped in Somebody tell the captain We been ready to take off for like 400 years now We're blinded through our ears now Plus it's all smoke n mirrors now In conversation I Piers Morgan my peers now just to keep it authentic And often it's a shadow of Paul Pierce how well we uh play for the green All the while Never noticing the changing of scene Like I was gone leave this bitch but if y'all gone roll up I might as well stay for the green And I can't go That's a dark tale So much weeping you'll be giving birth to willows in this shark tale So much weighing on his mind every bar like a barbel Every crack in his voice got coke from the cartel I ain't tellin jokes this is heart felt Tell me who else do you know Know that you ain't heard it like this in a long time Take yo shoes off at the door don't disrespect flow stay clean for a long time long time Southside nigga from the go So many times in the wrong place at the wrong time Double cup the water sip slow Double cup the water sip slow Sip on this country time fam I been squeezing my lemons Squigi my windows I'm tryna see it clearly Spit it in brail so I know you feel me the shit is bumpin Like cucumbers I brought the reign for a new thunder Now [Chorus]

The Great Divide

JOE COCKER "Have A Little Faith"
Nights are long And the wind is howling down Into the hollows Somewhere deep inside I can hear you calling out Across the great divide Right or wrong there's a feeling in my heart I try to follow But lately i just hide And my dream of someday crawling out To cross this great divide Isolation Heart like a drum And the beating is wearing me down Standing at the station But the train never comes Still I'm hanging on Like some old ghost town Miles to go but I see that one way out Stars in the distance Skies are open wide Waiting for my soul to rise Above this great divide Desperation Is a dangerous blade In a reckless and trembling hand Sweet salvation Just a thin line away I should cut and run But I'll make my stand Nights are long But I'll close my eyes again Until tomorrow Slip the bonds and ride Touch the face I long to see Above this great divide We'll be all We long to be Beyound this great divide

Barn Burner

JASON MICHAEL CARROLL "Growing Up Is Getting Old"
Brown paper sack, wintergreen pack A full tank of gas from a mini mart Cruisin' slow with Curtis Loew Speakers 'bout to blow, let the party start Take that ol' dirt road past that grain silo Red taillights glow, it's a pickup parade Over the cattle guard, find a place to park Show me to the bar, take my keys away It's time to play Then it's beer bong hangin' from the hayloft Jell-O shooters with Smirnoff Long necks chillin' in the feed trough Pig smokin' slow Flatbed band cranked up loud The more we drink the better they sound See the bonfire from all around Lettin' everybody know We've gotta barn burner Mini skirts, skintight shirts Look so good it hurts, drives me insane Mechanical buckin' bull Shot glasses full of tomorrow's pain Ain't you glad you came Drinkin' games goin' in the horse stalls Two step under the disco ball Billy Bob's blowin' on his duck call It's a hell of a show Sticky from the sweat so to beat the heat We go skinny dippin' down in the creek Promise the girls we can't see Thank God for that moon glow We've gotta barn burner Homemade shine way too strong David Allen Coe sing-a-long songs Bathroom lines takin' too long Go behind the tree Party all night 'til the sun comes up Sleep it off 'til you lose your buzz Good luck tryin' to find your truck We'll see you all next week At the Barn Burner Let it burn
