Faceless
He wouldn’t even look into my eyes
He wouldn’t even know my name
I seen him several hundred times
He wouldn’t even look into my eyes
He must be blind
He wouldn’t even look into my eyes
He wouldn’t know my name
I seen him several hundred times

European Jewel 613
You sure are cool, a European jewel
I dig you most
A letter came, it’s not the same
The ink was blue
A relative stopped by to say he saw you, hey
A walkin’ down a lonesome town
Some time ago
He said you had a mouth so bad
The lips were rotting off
You dropped a tear to end his fear
You seem quite well
It’s a long time spell
I’m wonderin’ well
You got an infection
There’s bugs in my brain, I can’t feel any pain
Just a shaking shake
Just a breaking break
Broke me today in the afternoon
No matter who you fool
It’s a European Jewel, aw, in disguise

Message to the Clerk (Part 1)
First I came to see the doctor, told him I was unemployed
Asked me what I did for money, told him I was overjoyed
To reach into the basket, and take a bunch of dimes
Drop them for the paper riddled with my rhymes
Take a message to the clerk, tell him not to work
Then I came to see the priest, said I knew God was alive
He looked at me quite solemn, said “Son don’t give me that jive”
I reached into my pocket, pulled out .45
Said “Priest I got your number, and this here ain’t no jive”
Take a message to the clerk, tell him not to work

Message to the Clerk (Part 2)
Then I came to see the man at the center of the town
Said hey there Mister Leader, you’re looking at a clown
I don’t engage in nothin’ except hangin’ around
I’m living high, I’m living low, I just scream the sound
Take a message to the clerk, tell him not to work
Then I came to see myself, I got a nervous quirk
He looks to me berserk
He pushes (?) out his time, he’s running down a line
Face all dripping down, carryin’ the sound
Take a message to the clerk, tell him not to work
And now you’re independent, brush your teeth three times a day
Remember how I told you, remember how I say
That you’ve seen the hundredth person, and you’ve called him down today
Just to hear how lovely it sounds to hear me say
Take a message to the clerk, tell him not to work

Breathtaker
Breathtaker, he took his toll
Microphone and rock ’n roll
Beat me up and take my time
Run up and down my scrambled spine
Early mornin’, he comes up
Rock’n’rollin’, he goes down
Down to see her, he says where
How’d ya feel
It sets a fire in you
Think you’re made of steel
Go ’round the corner
Hot tail fever, it’s the cold
Breathtaker, he took his toll
Mighty cold, rock’n’roll
A thousand jets fly to your door
He nailed you to the floor
A tale a sparrow told
Once to the mighty bold

 

 

 

 

 

Birthday
A dozen drops fall from your face
Shaking the rain in a quiet place
Shining clean a fresh new day
Wakes up the world in a fragrant bouquet
Listen to the sound of a constant fall
Skies give water for life of all
If you reach into the air
Rain will come to kiss your hair

European Jewel II
You sure are cool, a European jewel
I dig you most
A letter came, it’s not the same
The ink was blue
A relative stopped by to say he saw you, hey
A walkin’ down a lonesome town
Some time ago
He said you had a mouth so bad
The lips were rotting off
You dropped a tear into his ear
You’ll sing quite well

European Jewel 501
You sure are cool, a European jewel
I dig you most
A letter came, it’s not the same
The ink was blue
A relative stopped by to say he saw you, hey
A walkin’ down a lonesome town
Some time ago
He said you had a mouth so bad
The lips were rotting off
You dropped a tear to end his fear
You seem quite well
It’s a long time spell
I’m wonderin’ well
You got an infection
There’s bugs in my brain, I can’t feel any pain
Just a shaking shake
Just a breaking break
Broke me today in the afternoon
No matter who you fool
It’s a European Jewel, aw, in disguise

Branded on a Telephone
Branded on a telephone
Germans came, I wasn’t home
Nickel for your fortune true
Dime when you reach forty-two
Vertebrae all scrambled ’round
Lately I have found a sound
Mention this to him above
Take care of the one I love
He told me not to be afraid
I kissed his feet and dug my grave
Walkin’ down a line again
Hey mister, have you got a friend
Branded on a telephone
Junk man come, I wasn’t home
Peace (?) escaped from me today
Fortune lady was a liar

Lonesome Company
I ain’t got no home
When I leave some place, I’m gone
Come back another time
To read the wanted sign
You left me here alone
Now I have to look around
Try to find you in a friend
Someone here alone
I need, uh, someone near
Just to talk to or look at
And as the words
Ring ’round my ear
And the faces that you left
To keep a lonesome company

Same Road
Walk on the same road
Walk down the same road every day
But don’t let me fall prey
To the tired things all around
And when you don’t know whether to fight or
Just then it happens
All these things that happen every day
Turn around and mix them up
Walkin’ down the same road
Walkin’ down the same road
Walk down the same road everyday [2x]
Every day
Walk down the same road [2x]
Walk down the same road everyday
