White Velvet on white bones Baby, it's me Tapping on your door, a heavy raindrop Open up and see A silly woman who will always love you We met on the dancefloor of dreams Since you been gone I been talking to the animals Drinking myself to sleep In the ghetto, no light No hope only darkness A handsome man in a black fedora Baby that's you Hopping on a train with an empty suitcase Whistle blowing the blues Since I been gone you been waltzing with the stars Always on the move, on the lowdown no rest only darkness, on the move no rest, no kisses only darkness In the ghetto On the lowdown On the move Only darkness

I ain't the girl that I used to be Changed my name, moved to gay Paris Found a room without a view Locked the door and got a craving for you I got a craving for romance and danger Dangerous romance under the vampire moon Walking sideways down the Champs-Elysees I met a gentleman with a beautiful face Drank his blood til the stars turned blue Closed my eyes and thought about you I got a craving for romance and danger Dangerous romance under the vampire moon
3.
The cherry tree is howling and the wolves are all in bed Everything is mixed up in my crazy head The wind plays a tune on my guitar Summoning your light into my dark It ain't the blues No no no it's only you The house is in ruin but the garden is green I am one drink away from insanity The moon told me something terribly sad She said you went away and you ain't never coming back It ain't the blues No no no it's only you It ain't the blues It's only you

Born in the land of the sky Sunlight on your lips, desire in your eye With a song and a pistol full of dreams Drifting along on a psychedelic sea Amazing, light up the room Outrageous Illuminated Genius in the crowd You would throw any old dog a bone From your dark, enchanted loneliness When the highway calls your name You will be gone, teardrop in the rain Outrageous, blood on your white suit Amazing Illuminated Genius in the Crown

Crickets 03:02
I'm your rising sun, you're my harvest moon Let's walk forever on the path where the lilac blooms The wind is a sweetheart, blowing fresh and cool Crickets sing for the evening You're my path in the forest, I'm your favorite tree We have been through so many things together You're alright with me Rides in the country A midnight swim at the beach The treasures you gave me
6.
Do you love me Do you love me One day I'll be dead in a little black coffin so I wanna get dirty baby I wanna hurt Just got back from New Orleans Living in New York City New York City ain't wild enough for me Mars Mars Fly me to Mars whoooooo Mars Fly me to the Mars Bar Baby Don't say maybe Do you want me Do you want me I'm a major nuisance A minor alcoholic I lie and cheat and steal I'd do anything for a thrill My heart is full of music My brain is one big poem I can't wait to get my hands all over you Mars Mars Fly me to Mars whoooooo Mars Fly me to the Mars Bar Baby Don't say maybe Don't say anything Do you love me Do you want me Do you need me Do you love me Mars Mars Fly me to Mars whoooooo Mars Fly me to the Mars Bar Baby Don't say maybe Don't say anything at all
7.
I am not a sore loser, I let you go Easy as you came, washed up on my shore Dirty and tired, hurt and alone I took you in and I let you go Slippin through my hands like smoke Don't get too near wild things Let em fly and pray they come back again I still see you standing with one foot in my door and the other on the wind The other woman is the wind Maybe one day you'll be passing through My sweet old town where the skies are always blue I never take your picture off my wall No matter how many lovers come to call The other woman broke my fall

Leonard Cohen is now Sitting up on a star Light up a rainbow of diamonds Across the Universe Out in the nick of time Pour me a glass of moonshine I'm glad he never heard the sound Of America Weeping America sleeping America weeping America sleeping America weeping Farewell to our bright dream And his beautiful queen Thanks for all you tried to do We wish you could stay forever America you fucked up America good luck America wake up America weeping

Witchcraft, why not Fight back with what you got Unrest, Bad Vibes, Nobody likes The guy in the white house Wanna be a shooting star From where I am to where you are in the cities, towns, mountains and the desert We are a prayer tearing up the sky Razor Wing Butterfly On the march, millions strong Stomp your boots in won't be long Til we warm our bones by the fire of castles burning We are a prayer tearing up the sky Razor Wing Butterfly

Why Oh Why 02:13
The sun lights up when the moon goes dark Clouds get together then fall apart Every creature a work of art Act so dumb when we are so smart Why, why Trees breathe life into our hearts Hold each other in our arms Mesmerized by a flowers charm Act so dumb when we are so smart Why, why, why oh why You can philosophize Burn a hole in your mind Darling, you will never know What makes a river flow What makes a man leave home What makes the winter snow White, why, why oh why
