Don't come home pretty woman don't come home Don't come home pretty woman don't come home It's bad enough that you leave me alone Don't come home pretty woman don't come home Love is blind pretty woman don't go blind with your iodine dreams on my mind there's a big black bird doing rings in the sky love is blind pretty woman don't go blind In the room the women come and go talking of Michelangelo with their five o'clock faces and ten o'clock dreams they go da dadadadadada... We got time pretty woman we got time we will drown all our books by and by the master the swabber the boatswain and I we got time pretty woman we got time In the room the women come and go talking of Michelangelo with their five o'clock faces and ten o'clock dreams they go da dadadadadada... Don't come home pretty woman don't come home Don't come home pretty woman don't come home It's bad enough that you leave me alone Don't come home pretty woman don't come home

Snakeskin 03:14
Well the ocean is a snakeskin that I found in the basement where we laid under my staircase and swallowed all my blankets and your eyes did tell they went like rivers through my mouth And the mountains and the pavement all got tangled with engagements while the rich men sign their pay checks and procreate with statements and the red ribbon moon hangs like a trophy on the shelf I got a bad idea I think I'll keep it to myself I came home early and you were dancing by the door all with junk mail in your pockets and dead bolts on the floor and you said tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me And the sheriff on the mattress he was flipping through an atlas while his wife was striking matches with a hot pastrami sandwich in her powder blue dress and her white platform shoes I got a bad idea and I got nothing left to lose I came home early and you were dancing by the door all with junk mail in your pockets and dead bolts on the floor and you said tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me And you and I we are like children fractures of the moment at our feet the dreams of our fathers will remind us again that the whole wide world is asleep

There's a hole in the barrel and a maidenhead is preaching to a crowd along the river where a saxophone is sleeping in a greasy parlor window where the piano player dreams a languid dream I know I said I love you baby but nothing here is ever as it seems You know I wish I would I wish I would I wish I would I wish I would You know God don't love you baby but the Lord knows I wish I would All the voices in the Valvoline they are trying to relay to me all of the holy invertebrate dreams of my vagrancy and the angels of dawn they are calling out for clemency out along the highway plain for every eye to see and the Loa, l'wa, oh the L'wha- you sent them here to follow me She got the telephone blues and a wineskin in her shoes She got the afternoon gas station ransom in her boots and they say that every woman is just trying to cut loose but not every woman wants to be fell in love with too you can say what you mean but don't say that you never even knew You know I wish I would I wish I would I wish I would I wish I would You know God don't love you baby but the Lord knows I wish I would

Dynamite 03:29
Come on downstairs to the streets you paved with your lilly pad lies and sack lunch parade plan out the truths that you spout and you chew and fan out your troops like a motorcade I know why your hair is down this morning its a coming of age you sympathize with your unfettered eyes but you don't see how I paid to play The pain in my hands is from charting the plans and the dust on my coat is from dynamite the blood on my sleeve and the mud on my knees they are badges from the blind men that leave the blind And your face is a meal made of bombast and steel and your teeth are like gold when you salivate your hands and your feet are so worn out and week but your eyes are enabled with razor blades The pain in my hands is from charting the plans and the dust on my coat is from dynamite the blood on my sleeve and the mud on my knees they are badges from the blind men that leave the blind Da da da da da da da da da....

I wanna bleed my blood all up in the bathtub and watch it make a cloud around my knees I wanna bleed my blood all up in the bathtub and watch it make a cloud around my knees I've never been so sure I wanna see whats in store I wanna bleed my blood until I bleed no more I've never been so sure I wanna see whats in store I wanna bleed my blood until I bleed no more I wanna meet my friends all up in the purgatory hills and tread upon that grass that grows so straight and still I wanna meet my friends all up in the purgatory hills and tread upon that grass that grows so straight and still I wanna meet my friends lost and found again I wanna watch my hands and feet transcend I wanna meet my friends lost and found again I wanna watch my hands and feet transcend I wanna save my pennies for a little piece of what you own and beg you for a slice when you are old and overgrown I wanna save my pennies for a little piece of what you own and beg you for a slice when you are old and overgrown There's nothing in the world that I would rather have I wanna choke up all your machines with my cash There's nothing in the world that I would rather have I wanna choke up all your machines with my cash And we will sleep in the night time and we will eat our meals in the light and we will hold ourselves for ransom and we will steal with delight I wanna bleed my blood all up in the bathtub and stay awake all night 'til that linoleum floor starts to flood I wanna bleed my blood all up in the bathtub and stay awake all night 'til that linoleum floor starts to flood And when it's all done I will lay back in the sun and watch the birds pick away my bones When it's all done I will lay back in the sun and watch the birds pick away my bones and when it's all done I will lay back in the sun and watch the birds pick away my bones and when it's all done I will lay back in the sun and watch the birds pick away my bones
