KISS THE PLANET BLUE

‚Äč

HEY

Here I stand
On this desperate day
One great guy who's come to try
And haul your heart away
And I wish I had some clever thing to say

Hey, oh
I've got nothing and I don't know
Hey, oh
I've got nothing and I don't know

Now the road is long
And the night is hot
And I'm searching through the summer view
For that special spot
And I'd like to tell you something I forgot

Hey, oh
I've got nothing and I don't know
Hey, oh
I've got nothing and I don't know

Everybody needs some kind of friend
Everybody needs someone to care
A little bit of light in the dark I will lend
A little bit of space that I will share
When you find you're running to nowhere

Hey, oh
I'm laughing here, way down below
Hey, oh
I've got nothing and I don't know


 

ALONE IN A ZONE

I have been alone
Yeah, a long, long year
Since the day you walked out on me
Though I know
You were never here

I'm alone in a zone I'm alone
I'm alone in a lonely zone
I'm alone in a zone I'm alone
I'm alone in a lonely zone

Now your mom does not like me
She says I will bring you down
She says I am some kind of jerk
Running wild all over town

I'm alone in a zone I'm alone
I'm alone in a lonely zone
I'm alone in a zone I'm alone
I'm alone in a lonely zone

And you've got me hanging round
Feeling desperate, feeling drowned
Down where it's dark, down underground
That's where the real treasure is found

I saw you and Julio down by the schoolyard
I saw you and Julio fucking around


 

CRACKS

My brother's got a job
He's got a place, got a space to go
My friends all have it done
A certain spot, a special one
Me it seems I never really know

I'm falling through the cracks, girl
Falling through the cracks, girl
Falling through the cracks of this whole world

My mom and dad are there
Every night it's all right on TV
But I've got this guitar
Strumming toward a bridge too far
And nothing seems to matter much to me

I'm falling through the cracks, girl
Falling through the cracks, girl
Falling through the cracks of this whole world

I could give something
I could give it if I knew
I could be something
I could be something shiny and true


 

NOTHING I LIKE

I should be worried
I should be concerned
About my future
And the path I have not learned
But every day now
I put it off a bit
And by the evening
I rarely think of it

There's nothing that I like
There's nothing that I like
There's nothing that I like
But baby I like you

I know your daddy
Is in the NRA
He's got a rifle
He wants to point my way
He thinks I deserve it
For some liberties I took
You better tell him
I'm quicker than I look

There's nothing that I like
There's nothing that I like
There's nothing that I like
But baby I like you

It's too late
To change my fate
It's too late
I'm gone, I am gone
So don't you wait
Or hesitate
Don't want to keep you
Hanging on
To me


 

LOSERVILLE

I'm rising like a star
In the USA
So hop into my car
Or get out of my way
Your silver clouds are lined
With paperwork I've signed
Honey, can you tell?
I own your wishing well

But down in Loserville
That's where you'll stay
Down in Loserville
If you won't play

My hands are full of dirt
It's something you expect
I'm cruel to the core
A man of great respect
Honey, you and I
Have no need to be shy
I see you look at me
I'm where you want to be

But down in Loserville
That's where you'll stay
Down in Loserville
If you won't play

Down in Loserville
That's where you'll be
Down in Loserville
That's all you'lI see


 

PERMISSION FROM HAROLD

You better watch out
He's over there
Behind the water fountain
I see him stare
He's looking at you
Baby, do you care?
He's trying hard I know
To be everywhere

Permission from Harold
They say that's what I need
Permission from Harold
For every little deed
Permission from Harold
Maybe just to bleed
One day soon I will be free

When I took this job
I knew it was bad
When I saw him standing there
In polyester and plaid
Like a king shit toad
On his lily pad
Searching around for the crown
That he never had

Permission from Harold
They say that's what I need
Permission from Harold
For every little deed
Permission from Harold
Every day it is decreed
One day soon I will be free


 

IN THE END

I was blind
I got behind
I was down in a deep hole
I was underground 
Where nothing's found
But dead dirt and black coal
Everywhere, people stare
Looking for a light
Some kind of flare

In the end
In the end
In the end
It will be fine
In the end
In the end
In the end
It will shine

Now I have seen
What's in between
The sunrise and the night sky
Roll the dice 
Once or twice
And give it a good try
Then smile some more
'Cause rich or poor
Zero is your final score
In the end

Take me back
To the point of attack
Show me a place
Where there's one face without a crack
I want to hear
Something certain coming near
I know a song
Cannot be wrong
When it's loud and clear

In the end
In the end
In the end
It will be fine
In the end
In the end
In the end
It will it shine
All the time


 

LIKE I'VE NEVER BEEN

Baby I feel so high
Won't you kiss my battle cry?
Singing loud from a cloud
One more fool who's talking proud
Moving fast, will it last
Or just fade into the past?

But I am gonna make you my girl
Like I have never been in love
I am gonna make you my girl
Like I have never been in love

In your eyes, other guys
And you've tried them on for size
In the curls of other girls
Oh I've seen a string of pearls
Here's the deal that I feel
Who knows what the hell is real?

And I am gonna make you my girl
Like I have never been in love
I am gonna make you my girl
Like I have never been in love


 

UNCOOPERATIVE

In the evening
The sun is sinking low
I'm rolling like a thunderstorm 
That's got no place to blow
I've been burned by lightening
I've been ruined by the rain
I've been cursed and kicked around
But I feel no pain

And they call me uncooperative

I have come a long way
I'm standing at your door
Like some sorry soldier
Who's come back from a war
I hear the birds singing
Up on the power lines
They say keep your speakers ringing
While the summer sun still shines

And they call me uncooperative

All right
There's always something there
Just out of sight
Like some shadow
Slipping through the night
There's always some fool
I have to fight

Chorus

My girl she lives in New York City
She's hanging out down on Avenue A
And on her worst day she's so pretty
She is the dynamite
That blows my world away


 

MY LIFE DISTRACTED

I guess there's something
Something wrong with me
There's something busted, yes
In my psychology

And I am so distracted
All of the time
I'm living my life distracted
Most all of the time

It started out
When I was pretty small
I could not ride a bicycle
I could not catch the ball
I did not walk the high school halls
With any flag unfurled
I wandered through a wasteland
My fuzzy little world

And I am so distracted
All of the time
I'm living my life distracted
Most all of the time

I've got no future that I believe
I've got no tricks, baby, up my sleeve
I'm living low without much style
Just hanging around for a little while

My father says
My mother says
My friends all say
Well who cares anyway

Now you might have a job
And you might have a wife
You might have a million things
That drain away your life
Me I have got nothing, no
Nothing I can find
I'm staring into outer space
I'm staring like I'm blind

And I am so distracted
All of the time
I'm living my life distracted
Most all of the time

My hands are empty, I don't care
In my heart I'd like to share
I'd like to fly, I'd like to live
I don't know what I have to give

My father says
My mother says
My friends all say
Well who cares anyway


 

RUN AWAY

Hey baby
Gonna write you a song
I've got nothing to say
So it won't take long

Run away with me
Run away with me

Hey honey
I know where it's at
It's wherever you are
How about that?

Run away with me
Run away with me

I can't rap but I can rock and roll
There's nothing else just rock and roll
All my life, rock and roll
Right here, rock and roll

Run Away with me
Run away with me
