Ramona

I’m Shouting

From the deepest depths

I’m running

And I’m out of breath

I’m leaving

This all behind

I’m wondering

Why you’re hard to find

But I’m in control

I’m out of control

Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha

Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha

Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha

Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha

I’m hiding

And I’m in a hole

I grieve

For what they came and stole

It’s here

That I can

express that I’m

Nothing

if  I can’t impress

But I’m in control

I’m out of control

Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha Ah-ha

I’m sleeping

And I’m not disturbed

You’re weeping from pain unsure

I’m lost and found again

In time or

with the best of friends

I’m in control

I’m out of control

I’m hiding

from his teeth and claws

You’re shouting

It’s just the latest straw

You hold me, oh so tight

My voice, keeps you up at night

I’m in control

I’m out of control

A-ha A-ha A-ha A-ha

 

Find me all alone

Catch me, hold me close

 


So Calm, Relaxed

 

Don’t wait up

Too long...

It’s not so fun we’re still so young

We come undone

Coming back for you

And don’t wait up

Too long, long, long….

It’s not so fun we’re still so young

We come undone

Coming back for you

 

So Calm (so calm)

Relax the end has come

The trees are burned

But hell, it’s kinda fun

So Calm (so calm)

Relax the end has come

The party’s over and now we’re

 

Don’t wait up too long…

Chew me up, spit me out

Cut me down I’m coming back

For you

And don’t wait up too long...

Chew me up, spit me out

Cut me down I’m coming back

For you

 

So Calm (So Calm)

Relax the end has come

The trees are burned

But hell, it’s kinda fun

 

So Calm (So Calm)

Relax the end has come

The earth is cooked

And yeah, I think we’ve won

 

So Calm (So Calm)

Relax the end has come

The party’s over and now we’re

 

-It’s the new you-

 


The Fiddler and the Devil

 

My time has come

We’ve had some fun

I had it all

I thought I’d won

I’ve seen the world

And I’ve made my peace

So just do with me as you please

Before I go

I go alone

Don’t ask me this

and one more song

It ain’t too costly

It ain’t too cheap

Just relax

I’m on my knees

 

I had my bread

I drank my wine

All the while as you bide your time

Don’t make me beg

Don’t make me plead

Cause now I’ve made my peace

Before I go

I go alone

Allow me this

And one more song

It aint too costly

No it aint too cheap

just relax and dig this beat

 

Pull the bow across my strings

Is this really happening

Be it wraith or be it shade

Death she comes for all one day

My body shakes, my fingers ache

It’s not my fiddle but my soul to take

From sea to sea and shore to shore

Ever is she waiting at my door

 

The dye is cast, the web is spun

I’ll seal the deal into morning sun

I’m on your doorstep till song is done

Then for your soul I come

I’ve seen it all, every foreign land

Sheherazade to sons mortal man

Went down to Georgia with Charlie’s band

but now paralyzed I stand

 

Pull the bow across my strings

Is this really happening

Be it wraith or be it shade

Death she comes for all one day

My body shakes, my fingers ache

It’s not my fiddle but my soul to take

From sea to sea and shore to shore

Ever is she waiting at my door

 

 

Masquerade

 

Yes, you're looking so down you feel pretty

All the workers are going insane

And you wonder why women woo?

When their offspring may be lame

 

I have no time, to be wasting

No raison d'etre

So put on some lipstick and get to the corner

Clientele don't want your real name

 

Yes -- I have blood set in my veins

And yes -- I have wine set in my veins

 

Who's that feeding from grub on the bottom?

Leering from across the street

I can't afford to be philosophizing

When my children have no food to eat

 

I have no time, to be wasting

Defending what I am

When night falls, duty calls

Just call me "Magdalene"

 

And yes, I have blood set in my veins

 

Can't you stop when you're breathing

And stop what you're thinking

And end this disgraceful charade?

 

I could buy you right now

With the slums of my wallet

And use you in some Masquerade

 

I need you, I need you

 

Mother

 

Listen Mama, Listen Mama

Listen Mama

Sorry mama, Sorry mama

Sorry mama,

 

Are you sleeping, tell me are you dreaming?

Get lost and breathe me deeply

You break me quickly

Shape me, mold me fix me

 

Hold me back, but gently sweetly

How much of this must I now take

 

The more they change, they change the game

The more it sounds the same

And when I call, I call to you

Keep me close and keep me true

 

Hold me back, but gently sweetly

How much of this must I now take

 

Listen mama, listen mama, listen mama

I’m sorry mama, sorry mama

Sorry mama

 

You are not awake yet

You are not awake

You are not awake

I know how you work

I know how you work

You just dream and shake

How much of this must I now take

How much of this must I now take

How much of this must I now

Take take take take take

 

Listen mama, listen mama, listen mama

I’m sorry mama, sorry mama

Sorry mama

 


Strange Ones

 

Age for the old man is nothing

Running through town, bones on skin

All is seen and all is his if he so desires

His is fortune

 

Be me

Have me

Fight for me

Teach me

Shake me

Speak for me

 

Dressed in skin he runs for us

Dressed in skin he lives for us

Dressed in skin he grows young

 

It's all here to inspire you/where's the inspiration?

 

Where is my spine?

What are all these things we must do?

My heart goes to the strange ones

They are everyone's (and)

Make us uncomfortable!

 

Time for the young girl lacking age

When insulted she fought back

All is seen and all is hers if she so desires

Hers is fortune

 

Be me

Have me

Fight for me

Teach me

Shake me

Speak for me

 

In the trees lie true romance

In the trees we will remain

In the trees we grow old

 

It's all here to inspire you/where's the inspiration?

 

Where is my spine?

What are all these things we must do?

My heart goes to the strange ones

They are everyone's (and)

Make us uncomfortable!

 

CREEPSTER

 

To stay inside or hit the street

Blow through town, be indiscreet

Step aside and take a seat

Don't take the blame, I'll take the heat

 

Oh, what's killing me

Oh, is that you cannot see

When I am lost I'm in your dreams

 

Don't be scared I'm just a little hungry

Taste your lips, getting drunk off milk and honey

When I speak do I sound a little funny?

Sing with me so that no one is lonely

 

Look through your window, I remain

Bat your lashes, shout my name

Look again, I'm still the same

I break your heart to fuel the flame

 

Oh, what's killing me

Oh, is that you cannot see

When I am lost I'm in your dreams

 

Don't be scared I'm just a little hungry

Taste your lips, getting drunk off milk and honey

And when I speak do I sound a little funny?

Sing with me so that no one is lonely

 


Science!

 

Look the mad scientist

A god with complete control

Try to think as he does

And guess what is his downfall?

Fantasize with his dreams

And you may scream in awe

Oh nature/nurture crises

 

Who lives without

Some desire

 

In your head

In your dreams

In your sweeeeet (suite)

 

Let a sound be a sound

A man is no soft machine

Cut the fat from his ass

And carve a garbanzo bean

We are bound to create

But must we fabricate

Oh nature/nurture crises

 

Who lives without

Some desire

 

In your head (a symphony!)

In your dreams (a melody)

So sweeeeet

 

And I’m just one simple man

Not much to understand

Will the brave engineer make more cuts than bandages?

Are we building tall trees

Or new breeds of dandies

Oh nature/nurture crises

 

Who lives without

Some desire?

 

Dreams and reality

They might be the same

To the king just ask thy name

Science! Is! King!

 


The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

 

Here we remain

The end is nigh

In times like these

And days go by

Tell me the tale of her Desire

check if she’s Ready with that fire

 

The dead (the dead)

Don’t do no walking alone

Just ahead (just ahead)

Down the road I’m

Leading them home

 

And here I sit and

Bitch and cry

Let’s start again

I lost my Eye

were we born

meant to suffer

you’ve made your call

I’ll see no other

 

The dead (the dead)

Don’t do no walking alone

Just ahead (just ahead)

Down the road I’m

Leading them home

 


Pop Gold (For The Children)

 

She saw you waiting

Calmly, instead of the usual surprise

Feeding off her lint (oh no, why so)

And going to the store

just to stand and watch

 

“Marla,” she says with her eyes

And she chokes as she tumbles

she stumbles far from here

Like any other time, maybe only time

 

If it weren’t for the children

Then could I be to blame

My heart pumps slowly

So I stay the same and

If you want to take me home

Then try to understand

I don’t know

 

Marla (MARLA)

We pray to you wholly

 

They both dream of each other

For one it is the only time

She shows any teeth like

As Rasputin claws through the wall

And he says I will still

Choose another

 

If it weren’t for the children

Then could I be to blame

My heart pumps slowly

So I stay the same and

If you want to take me home

Then try to understand

I don’t know

 

So, hold me

and tell me

I’m to blame

 

Satan’s Song

 

As I was looking for

A little more

Upon this shore

Realized I was in a fix

There’s a triple 6

It’s the River Styx

 

The stench of brimstone

He’s on the phone, in monotone

Hopped in a big, black car

It’s not too far, He’s the Morning Star

 

Gave me a cigarette

Wrote a minuet

But better yet:

Took me to Bennigan’s

Called all my friends

And I saw the end

 

Burning and writhing hot

I tied the knot

Without a thought

Cut up my body quick

And made it stick

To the shiny brick

 

I got this problem

Who’s gonna stop him?

Not me…

I’m caught in between

Der teufel der teufel und der sea

Oy vey!

 

I got this problem…

Who’s gonna stop him?

Not me!

I’m stuck in his grin

I’m here, sinking in

And it begins again

 

As I was looking for

A little more

Upon this shore

Realized I was in a fix

There’s a triple 6

It’s the River Styx

 

The stench of brimstone

He’s on the phone, in monotone

Hopped in a big, black car

It’s not too far, He’s the Morning Star

 

(You see, I) I got this problem

Who’s gonna stop him?

Not me…

I’m caught in between

Der teufel der teufel und der sea

Oy vey!

 

I got this problem…

Who’s gonna stop him?

Not me!

I’m stuck in his grin

I’m here, sinking in

And it begins again

 


Zora

 

We cross the street

Oh to see! Such a crowd of people

Direct your feet in defeat

To the one man steeple

Now jump ahead, a she said

I waiting there, for you

So dry your tears

It may be years

Still, I stand beside you

 

Zora must we leave

Must we leave so soon?

Davai zaitchiky

 

Must we rest

In this mess

Are you feeling better?

Hear that sound, in the ground

Does it really matter?!

One last show, so we know

Why not have a look?

Let’s take it slow

Watch me go

As I do this by the book

 

Zora must we leave

Must we leave so soon?

Davai zaitchiky

 

We cross the street

Oh to see! Such a crowd of people

Direct your feet in defeat

To the one man steeple

Now jump ahead, a she said

I waiting there, for you

So dry your tears

It may be years

Still, I lie beside you

 

Zora must we leave

Must we leave so soon?

Davai zaitchiky

 

(DA!) Eta chita drita

 

The Strigoi Waltz

 

Now don’t you flee

Come to me

Night has just begun

 

Feel my bite

It’s sheer delight

Oh you’re a tender one

 

It won’t be long

Before your strong

Till the change is done

 

I know your need

Let’s make ‘em bleed

Before the morning sun

 

The Strigoi Waltz!

Is something we may share

Or someone who may care

No time to choose

 

Only once

I thought to ask of you

I was barely in control

Not much to lose

 

A fleeting glance

A point of view

It’s so twisted and confused

 

Do we speak?

My stomach’s weak

As of late, I’m feeling used

 

So dry your tears

Allay your fears

And dance amongst the graves

 

Take a hint

It’s not a stint

Just the gift I gave

 

In a pinch

Don’t you flinch

Who says Jesus Saves?

 

No need to breathe

It’s time to feed

I know what you crave

 

The Strigoi Waltz!

Is something we may share

Or someone who may care

No time to choose

 

Only once

I thought to ask of you

I was barely in control

Not much to lose

 

A fleeting glance

A point of view

It’s so twisted and confused

 

Do we speak?

My stomach’s weak

As of late, I’m feeling used

 

The Strigoi Waltz!

Is something we may share

Or someone who may care

No time to choose

 

Only once

I thought to ask of you

I was barely in control

Not much to lose

 

A fleeting glance

A point of view

It’s so twisted and confused

 

Do we speak?

My stomach’s weak

As of late, I’m feeling used

 


An Ode to Bregovic (or Toro’s Lament)

 

Caje, suje, pa lera, hopaaaaa

 

If you want to party

I’ll party

Why can’t you see?

Yes you want to party

it’s starting to tire me

If this is how you party

we’ll party

I’ll count to 3

now we’re gonna party

let’s party

Untie me

 

Life spins madly on without you

This could take some getting used to

For what it’s worth my heart remains

Everyday I wrack my brain

This time it will surely come

You’ve had your fill, I think we’re done

 

Caje, suje, pa lera, hopaaaaa

 

If you want to party

I’ll party

Why can’t you see?

Yes you want to party

it’s starting to tire me

If this is how you party

we’ll party

I’ll count to 3

now we’re gonna party

let’s party

Untie me

 

Please doubt not and/or protest

It’s just your hand upon my breast

I’m bleeding out and feeling lost

Leave it be, despite the cost

And in the end if I should call

Don’t mind me, I’ve seen it all

 

Caje, suje.. Cigani: YURIS!

 

If you want to party

I’ll party

Why can’t you see?

Yes you want to party

it’s starting to tire me

If this is how you party

we’ll party

I’ll count to 3

now we’re gonna party

let’s party

Untie me

 

All good things have come to pass

Of course, I end up being last

Trapped inside this ebb and flow

I’ll be right back dear, kharasho?

I thought that this time, it would come

Fear not darling, I’ve brought my gun

 

Life spins madly on without you

This could take some getting used to

For it’s worth my heart remains

Everyday, I wrack my brain

This time it will surely come

I’ve had my fill

I think we’re done

 

Caje, suje, palera OPAAAA

 

If you want to party

I’ll party

Why can’t you see?

Yes you want to party

it’s starting to tire me

If this is how you party

we’ll party

I’ll count to 3

now we’re gonna party

let’s party

Untie me
