BEST SUNDAY DRESS

Terrified of all the corruption
Hear the thump of every breath
I'm going to, I'm going to
I'm going to miss it

I'm sleeping in the river
Drowning in this fatal moon
I walk into all your motives
See my world is getting cruel

We will be perfect again
If it's the last thing we ever do
Still I'm on your side
Still I'm on your side
We will be perfect again

Put on my best Sunday dress
And I walk straight into this mess of mine
And I put on my best Sunday dress
And I walk straight into this mess of mine

Terrified of all the corruption
So afraid of the disease
Look at you and your innocence
You're me with my baby

No more that you come your friend
No more seizures by the sea
I walk this plank like a lullaby
And no one throws rocks at me And no one throws rocks at me

You can have your pound of flesh
Just justify it

Put on my best Sunday dress
And I walk straight into this mess of mine
And I put on my best Sunday dress
And I walk straight into this mess of mine

QUIET ROOM

In your quiet room
There is the bed you love

Looking into your zombie eyes
I saw, I saw angels
Untie me from your bleeding tomb
My body says the name
That she loves

In this body
I hate this body
Hell is all we have here

Take me to the quiet room
There is the bed you love
Tie my soul you really want
I will chain my messiah

You come to me
And bring me Arabian sorrow
You take my life and take away
This (is) me through tomorrow

BERNADINE

You dominate, and promise me
Why won't you try to love me
You always knew

Lonely lovers hang from you
Why won't you cry me a river

She's gonna fall down on her knees forever
And know; I want you
You are the only perfect thing yeah
You are the one thing I dream
I just pray for release,
And I'm falling into your eyes
I've got a gate into your eyes
That's the way of forgiving baby
We're much too young to be living

Sing me a lullaby,
Crash into a small screen
Don't leave me in here;
Dark catacomb

Inside the lovers buy me
Only one runs to bat
True love can be so cruel

You're the only one who can lead me into
This side is better
I just pray for release, Bernadine
And I'm falling into your eyes

Gone again into your eyes
That's the way of forgiving baby

We're much too young to be living
You are the only perfect thing yeah
You are the one thing I dream

I just pray for release, Bernadine
And I'm gone again into your eyes
I've got a gate into your eyes
That's the way of forgiving baby
We're much too young to be living

COLD SHOULDERS

One dozen white ones
They all go to
I get cold shoulders
And I go to sleep

One would have given the lazy eye
Falling drunken, deaf and blind
Meeting decent people
Run for me and I'm dead again

One dozen white ones
I'm poisoned too late
The ocean calls me
And I go to sleep

After the goldrush everything is great
Nothing
Meeting decent people
Run for me and I'll whisper in your day

I'm only too glad
You've finally come here
Your eyes blue
And they're bleeding clean

For once in your life you will see the light
And he called a party, but didn't invite me
The candles by the bed are screaming your name
And I am dead again

To dream about this again
Live without this
Once in a blue moon,
I will come here to you

Burning and cool,
You don't know what to do

Falling down

And you give the truth to me
Believing has no decency
Burning the candle, you come down and
