The Bone Daddy lifts his skull from the piano lid to play "Lemme get a whiskey and peach tea." Pistol on the table Revolver in the holster "You ain't gunna shoot me I paid my drink fee." Bodie Currency Brown paper's dead tree The deeds you've done for me or the ax to my family tree The ragtime girl gets groovin' to the keys played by Bony Phalanges Whiskey down The cards are free The game is cheap But Jimmy always carries on ya see 'im? Losin' gals he pulls his gun on me Bodie Currency Red Paper's blood money The deeds you've done for me Or the ax to my family tree *Hey boy I see you sittin' there drink your whiskey down but Bodie Currency ain't got no value in my town But I need ya to get yourself up and go grab your things Don't you return until the tumbleweed sings...* Tumbleweed! You're smoking buddy The goods I've grown I've paid my fee Bodie don' remember nah Bodie don' remember democracy Oh the folk here, they exchange Bodie Currency Oh, no paper no tree The deeds you've done for me or the ax to my family.

Booth seat Sittin at the diner For us its night even though it's lighter out I eat alone The eggs are over-scrambled but the waffles taste like Belgium's own Hash browns Meet me in the morning cuz we know Jimmy will be working tonight I'll take a seat right at your table will you talk to me if you're able if your work is slow And I don't know if I'll meet you for breakfast I think I might sleep in What couch in who's house am I waking in? I don't know where I've been "I don't know where you've been!" You take me over easy You pull me from the grind I was simmerin' in my sleep I was simmerin' again I felt your lips on my neck and I just fell right in Tic Tac Toe on paper menus I'll draw a portrait of your cat I told the waitress that you'll be here but your coffee's gettin' cold and I don't know about that Hash browns Meet me in the morning cuz we know Jimmy will be working tonight And you better wait for our edges to get golden brown And I don't know if I'll meet you for breakfast I think I might sleep in What couch in who's house am I waking in? I don't know where I've been "I don't know where you've been!" You take me over easy You pull me from the grind I was simmerin' in my sleep I was simmerin' again I felt your lips on my neck and I just fell right in Wake and bake Will you make me a pancake? Wake and bake Will you make me a milkshake? Wake and bake Will you pour me some cornflakes? Wake and bake Will you make me a pancake? You take me over easy You pull me from the grind I was simmerin' in my sleep I was simmerin' again I felt your lips on my neck and I just fell right in

Dreamin' of a western tale I rode along the Oregon Trail and still I ended here Maybe you'll come swoopin' in and i will be with you again but I won't hold my breath Death's in every howl and bough and I will get to you somehow but I cannot say when I wanna give you up like the bad habit that you are Why, oh why's that so hard? You've got maps and books and boats and they will help you stay afloat but I will sink into this land I kept thinkin' I could never love you as you are but that's exactly why I do There is mercury in me but there's no mercury in you and that is something to cling to Exactly who you are is exactly who you'll be but a change is comin' in me A change is comin' in me A change is comin' in me

in a forrest pitch-dark glowed the tiniest spark it burst into flame like me like me my name isobel married to myself my love isobel living by herself in a heart full of dust lives a creature called lust it surprises and scares like me like me my name isobel married to myself my love isobel living by herself when she does it she means to moth delivers her message unexplaind on your collar crawling in silence a simple excuse nana na nana nana na nana in a tower of steel nature forges a deal to raise wonderful hell like me like me my name isobel married to myself my love isobel living by herself when she does it she means to moth delivers her message unexplaind on your collar crawling in silence a simple excuse nana na nana nana na nana nana na nana nana na nana

I got one window in a padded room. Eclipsed by clouds, she can still shine through But I don’t know about this… I don’t know about this… She said ‘Climb the Eiffel’ ‘Climb the Eiffel’ And if I get there soon, Past psychiatrists and needle rockets… Doctor’s didn’t understand gravity, They see lunatics and waves And they say ‘What kind of lycanthropy is this?’ She said ‘Climb the Eiffel’ ‘Climb the Eiffel’ And if I get there soon, Past psychiatrists These needle rockets… (Luna ticks me, offending the inmates as I escape.) (Luna ticks me off, ending the inmates as I escape.) Climbing x’s with my cotton wings, Paris is white with lightning— Now I know about this. Now I know about this But I fell I fell I fell I fell. (Waxing—Waning—Wanting more.)
