Siren Has Antennaes

She is not an angel, but she seems so close to death
The moment that I see her, I always lose my breath
To me she has no face nor eyes can I recall
But I can hear her melodies rising from the floor

Maybe for a moment, if I could lose myself in her
Maybe for a moment, maybe– forever

She will not believe me, she knows how much I lie
She always sees through me, it’s a simple matter of time
Her friends, they come to watch me, I drink myself to doom
She’s too busy singing in the next room

Maybe for a moment, if I could lose myself in her
Maybe for a moment, maybe– forever

Once I tried to run away As far as I could
The siren has antennaes, of course, running does no good
There are no magic mystic potions, I sail on without fear
I must always love her or else I disappear

Maybe for a moment, if I could lose myself in her
Maybe for a moment, maybe — forever.

The Lady Vanishes

The magician, she went about her business
Making birds and flowers and rabbits appear
She held the audience in her palm spellbound
Made it seem like anything could happen here

What kind of magic is in the air
About a feeling, I can never be sure
Still, it’s hard to believe in pure reason
After all, my senses have lied before

And then the lady vanishes
A puff of smoke and she disappears in thin air
And then the lady vanishes
The last time I looked, she was standing right there

She was more than even I could imagine
Hard to believe, but, then so easy to see
We danced away only for a short time
But long enough for a memory

She was no stranger to a dream
But in reality there was no small confusion
As she made her way across the stage
Preparing for the best and last illusion

And then the lady vanishes
The last time I looked, she was standing right there
And then the lady vanishes
Just at the moment when I had started to care

Am I doomed to repeat the situation?
Was there something then, that I forgot to do?
Alive only in my imagination
Making it hard for me to get close to you

What kind of magic is in the air
About a feeling, I can never be sure
Still, it’s hard to believe in pure reason
After all, my senses have lied before

And then the lady vanishes
All it takes is a second and a dream is blown apart
And then the lady vanishes
Right when you appear with a cure for a broken heart.

Strangers On A Train (version 1)

Your eyes say that you are kind
I like the style and the cut of your hair
I keep looking for a ring on your hand
Or any other kind of clue about you there

All these people are on the move
Everybody here’s got a destination
Another chance we don’t get
You could disappear at the very next station

‘Cause, we are only strangers, strangers, strangers on a train
For a moment, there I really thought I knew you
We’re only strangers, strangers on a train
But, I’m too shy, to say a word to you…

And I don’t want to be rude
A first impression can be so revealing
But. I had better make a move
Or you’ll never know what I am truly feeling

I really ought to be polite, But, this is a case of love at first sight
And at this stop, I should be getting off now
I really ought to be polite, But, this is a case of love at first sight
And I’ve got to break the ice with you somehow

‘Cause, we are only strangers, strangers, strangers on a train
For a moment, there I really thought I knew you
We’re only strangers, strangers on a train
But, I’m too shy, to say a word to you…

Are you on your way home?
What do you do for an occupation?
Are you looking for a love?
Could I offer you an invitation?

Strangers on a train
Do you think, maybe, we could be friends
Strangers on a train, today
But, maybe not when the journey ends…

Reason

It’s a reason, it’s a reason, reason

It’s a reason, but, not a reason for a broken heart
It’s a reason, but, not a reason for a broken heart to start
There’s a reason, there’s a reason to go on with a sense of purpose
You’re the only one, the only one I’m loving

I’ve seen fire, I’ve seen a burning bush
Long time since I felt desire got me in it’s grip
Come to me, come to me, don’t roll up your eyes
Come to me, come to me, come to me, be a little friendly

It’s a reason, but, not a reason for a broken heart
It’s a reason, but, not a reason for a broken heart to start
There’s a reason, there’s a reason to go on with a sense of purpose
You’re the only one, the only one I’m loving

How many times can I tell you,
If I could only come to your senses
You don’t really love me and who needs the hurt?

It’s a reason, but, not a reason for a broken heart
It’s a reason, but, not a reason for a broken heart to start
There’s a reason, there’s a reason to go on with a sense of purpose
You’re the only one, the only one I’m loving

It’s a reason, it’s a reason, reason.

Old TImes

I wander through this town asleep
I call your name, but, there’s no relief
What kind of man would give you less?
From behind curtains that you peek
Too many tears roll down that cheek
And no one needs this kind of stress…
What about a change, just for old times
Hand in the fire, just for old times, for old times, for old times

Sometimes you know I’m taken back
Down one peg off the beaten track
A phone call tells you when to go
If you blink, you’re sure to miss
The only one that you’d want to kiss
Small flash and a sinking stone
Now you know what it’s like to be alone
But, I haven’t seen a winner yet
What about a change, just for old times
Hand in the fire, just for old times
What about a change, just for old times
Hand is in the fire, just for old times

You call this race: win, place or show
It’s where you land & who you know
I haven’t seen a winner yet
Sometimes you know I’m taken back,
Wandering through on this unholy track
What kind of man would bring you less?
Is this another drinking to forget?
What about a change, what about a change now?
What about a change, just for old times,
Hand in the fire, just for old times for old times, old times…

Eyes In The Back Of My Head

I’ll be saying this once, but there should be no mistakes
Eggs: extra runny, toast: almost black
Put the butter on the side, make sure the bacon is crispy
Spit in my coffee: get a knife in your back.

‘Cause I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, little darling
Eyes in the back of my head, what you’re doing
I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, looking through you
Eyes in the back of my head.

When I get busy, I don’t need an excuse,
Zip on the lip, you know I told you before…
If I catch you talkin to that piggy again
Out on your ass like a Hollywood whore

‘Cause I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, you won’t see me
Eyes in the back of my head, good day, sunshine
I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, hey bulldog
Eyes in the back of my head.

My direct connection is undisputed
My every premonition has come to be so
This outdated system is completely poluted
When my seed is planted, a new world can grow
A new world will grow.

You know the plan, make it look sloppy
This is where tomorrow’s headlines will be made
From bullshit and confusion, the demons will rise
Tonight is the night the debts begin to get paid.

Garbage dump survivor of a festering nation
This hit will straighten out your fragile mind
I’ll send more instructions by way of the ether
Don’t fuck it up or you’ll get left behind.

‘Cause I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, sexy Sadie (you won’t see me)
Eyes in the back of my head, come together (little piggies)
I’ve got eyes in the back of my head, helter skelter (all together now)
Eyes in the back of my head.
