TOM WAITS lyrics - Bone Machine

Who Are You

Original and similar lyrics
They're lining up To mad dog your tilta whirl 3 shots for a dollar Win a real live doll All the lies that you tell I believed them so well. Take them back Take them back to your red house For that fearful leap into the dark I did my time In the jail of your arms Now Ophelia wants to know Where she should turn Tell me...what did you do What did you do the last time? Why don't you do that Go on ahead and take this the wrong way Time's not your friend Do you cry. Do you pray Do you wish them away Do you still leave nothing But bones in the way Did you bury the carnival Lions and all Excuse me while I sharpen my nails And just who are you this time? You look rather tired (Who drinks from your shoe) Are you pretending to love Well I hear that it pays well How do your pistol and your Bible and your Sleeping pills go? Are you still jumping out of windows in expensive clothes? Well I fell in love With your sailor's mouth and your wounded eyes You better get down on the floor Don't you know this is war Tell me who are you this time? Tell me who are you this time?

Papillon

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT "The Airborne Toxic Event"
All dressed up, no place to run No car, no girl, no pills, no fun Nothing to do in this empty room I've got to get my head together soon Alone again, no plans, no friends You come around at half past ten You say "How are you holding up my friend? Are you sitting around getting drunk again?" And I hear the desperation of those lines Wasted hours, all this wasted time Oh yeah, I've been just fine! Then we're out the door in an hour more We stumble down from the second floor And we're swaying, braying We don't know what we're saying And you grab my shirt, you're always so curt I swear to God that this doesn't hurt When you stare like that, you put on that act You say something and then you take it back And I feel as though I've done something wrong Oh, how I miss you when you're gone And I wish I had the guts to scream, "You know, things aren't always what they seem" When you walk away, I want you to stay Don't leave me here to pace and pray All these nights I burn, these hours I turn You'd think that by now I'd learn That you're only what you pretend to be I guess that was just lost on me I can't stand the way you look at me in that dress Papillon, I might be alright I guess If I wasn't such a mess I'm such a mess

Next Time Around

Denny Sandy
(Sandy Denny) Then came the question, and it was about time The answer came back and it was long The house it was built by some man in a rhyme But whatever came of his talented son? Who wrote me a dialogue set to a tune? Always you told me of being alone Except for the stories about God and you And do you still live there in Buffalo? They put up the walls with no more to say Nobody stopped to ask why it was done The stream was too far and the rain was too high So into the city the river did run Because of the architect the building fell down Smothered or drowned all the seeds which were sown I wish I were somewhere, but not in this town Maybe the ocean next time around I seem to remember the face and the name But if it's not you I won't care I know of changes, but nothing would change you To Theo the sailor who sings in his lair And then I'll turn and he won't be there Dusty black windows to light the dark stair Candles all gnarled in the musty air All without flames for many's the year

Tired Of Sleeping

SUZANNE VEGA "Days Of Open Hand"
Oh Mom, the dreams are not so bad It's just that there's so much to do And I'm tired of sleeping Oh Mom, the old man is telling me something His eyes are wide and his mouth is thin And I just can't hear what he's saying Oh Mom, I wonder when I'll be waking It's just that there's so much to do And I'm tired of sleeping Oh Mom, the kids are playing in pennies They're up to their knees in money And the dirt of the churchyard steps Oh Mom, that man he ripped out his lining He tore out a piece of his body To show us his 'clean quilted heart' Oh Mom, I wonder when I'll be waking It's just that there's so much to do And I'm tired of sleeping Oh Mom, the bird on the string is hanging Her bones are twisting and dancing She's fighting for her small life Oh Mom, I wonder when I'll be waking It's just that there's so much to do And I'm tired of sleeping Oh Mom, I wonder when I'll be waking It's just that there's so much to do And I'm tired of sleeping

Never Done Nothing Like That Before

Supergrass "Life On Other Planets"
Well he sleeping now and lying on the floor He's never done nothing like that before And I've been stroking your cat come and give us a paw Never done nothing like that before Never before, you don't know what you're talking about Well I'm blowing my chunks with the kids all three Never done nothing like that before Now I'm doing time for the PTA Never done nothing like that before Never before, you don't know what you're talking about la la la, la la la la la la, la la la la la la, la la la Never before, you don't know what you're talking about
