Return to Girl In A Coma

 

Sybil Vane Was Ill
she won’t mind they always said a women's touch can
cure no man
in beauty lies a sticky game without your words you
are nothing
Sybil Vane was ill
and she knows now that she’s falling and she will say
to you "I'll better prove myself"
try to hide all your sins write a letter to make
amends
but she’s not that tough to let you roam around her
she is gone...but you…you are the greyest of them all
yeah you...your boastful tongue has bit them all
and after all was said and done the pleasure was all
yours to run
you dragged her down and said "oh you are such a fool,
where's your stamina at?"
she says "it's lost in you"
you showed her life beyond acts and now she lusts for
you
oh there was no fair warning
no there was no fair warning
but her heart it just stopped and you grow weary of
nights crawling
deep into your breathless eyes made you soon realize
that Sybil Vane she spoke no lies
you'll soon figure out that everything was true
Sybil Vane inspired and she'll do the same for you…
with her dreamy head she couldn’t have it all
remember now she died holding to much thought in her
mind
but you…

A Conversation
wake me be
before I sleep
on your couch I did weep about the good things in life
about the bad things in life
life's opinion is so stretched out self pity is what
its all about
self ugliness rules the world it takes over all little
girls
walk me through my own private hell
the statue I disdain meets me in hell even it gives
mourning
join in hate give mourning
and run to my broken wing

Consider
I’m going right back to my
lost comfort ...would you close your eyes
on our first kiss of the night?
carve my name on your bedroom wall
I am going nowhere
sulking in days I now laugh over
would you smile if I wrote you a song?
and would you cry for every night I am gone?
we long for those special people
who pull away when we start to figure them out
I am going nowhere
sulking in days I now laugh over
but now we know just where they go
when they’re crawling alone searching
for a piece of what they long for

Their Cell
so I'm saving all my secrets for a deaf man
blabber on I blabber on
stare empty at a wall
and make it try to sing along
carry on I carry on
you’re shackled all you pain is stiff
tattooed lovers they don't like to reminisce
keep pictures of the people you once loved
in a safe oh in a safe
oh no you lost the combination oh no you have the
wrong address
scribble names unscramble names
oh you’re shackled all your pain is stiff
I know you’re planning your vengeance
tattooed lovers they don't like to reminisce
who knows what name they're screaming now
so I'm saving all my secrets for a deaf man
blabber on and on and on and on
oh no you lost the combination oh no you have the
wrong address
scribble names unscramble names
see this world is not just a ball
of vagueness you can just bounce off
dear Jane, well I wrote this line to say
hope you still can recall my name
dear Jane, I wish everything is okay
oh Jane, forgive all they may say
dear Jane, well I wrote this line to say
hope you still can recall my name

Celibate now
you don’t know why you want her
you say it’s just her charm dear
another road to cross and mend
but do you hear those whispers say “oh see her now?”
she’s just like the rest of them
I’m only staying because I will wait for love
you say you’re celibate now
try to erase the past
you crashed into me and made your mark
I’m only staying because I will wait for love
I don’t know what your doing
I don’t like this much
now I see your plan
now I understand
I’m only staying because I will wait for love

Simple Man
simple man what dirty hands you have
oh the better to leave your greasy mark on
how I missed you tonight
your eyes were the thrill of my life
and how I’d love to break you
take you apart tonight
put you together again
simple man what dirty hands I have
the better to leave my greasy mark on
how I loved you tonight
your words made the poem called “our lives”
and how I’d love you to break me
take me apart tonight
put me together again
now is all we know
I will wait
for the dream to slip away
keep all we know in a box until it shows
you are a simple man hold spiders in your hand
hand them to me in a simple manner
say “I would go through whatever for you”
you say “don’t be shy see”
like that’s all we’ve come to know
you say “come on come on”
like that’s all we really know
was long ago and far away
our world was over yesterday
but still we made our promises
but still you ask for just one kiss
of all the words I’ll ever say
I hope that you recall one day
“I never meant to say goodbye”
but you’ll never know
simple man what dirty hands I have


I’ll Ask Him
but what they really wanna know
is are you gonna stay?
you’ve seen so many girls
I was passing through your way
well you’re a guy and I’m a doll
huckster lad
will you keep me in your mind?
I can hear me in your sigh
but lover I recall faint melodies
of when you turned your back and I had to scream
we were falling in love
but what I really wanna say
is if I dreamt as if I lived
such a complex day
but then I lived and died today
but lover I recall faint mysterious
of when I dropped my back and you had to scream
we were falling in love..
I’m in love
I said to him “what do you do when everything you
heard was true?”
daddy am I a nice girl for making him cry?
we were falling in love…oh no

Only I
I suck your tongue
to make amends
you still feel numb well
I feel useless
I still recall, oh I forgot
I cut in line… I still missed it
my love would you say I’m more sweet when I can scream
“I tried”
I watch you slip away through my fingers
I watch you walk away
you’ll be compared
I’m used to it
you’ll be replaced
still used to it
my love would you bring me a drink? I’m sore and I
feel weak
I watch you slip away through my fingers
I watch you walk away
I’ll go when I feel it’s right
I know when I think I’m wrong
I’ll say things I will regret
I’ll say
I’ll say when I know I’m wrong…
I’m wrong
I’m drifting away
I watch you walk away “I tried” but you won’t stay.

Mr. Chivalry
you sleep all day to sulk the pain away
Mr. Chivalry is hanging around passing gifts all over
town
but why do I cut you?
why do I feel so wide?
your heart is hanging stiff its over there
she passes by
gives a sigh
second glance was on her mind
why do I cut you?
why do I feel so wide?
I guess it’s just a phase
now you will stand… waiting
you’re waiting
for my new plan
you’re waiting just waiting
but now could you feel so low?
so here’s our lives
it’s happy yet false
Mr. Chivalry is hanging around
waiting to be the talk of the town
why do I cut you?

Race Car Driver
with your eyes you will gaze
mysterious I’ll say
will you be my race car driver?
of all your first mistakes am I the best to make
will you be my race car driver?
but why crash when there’s so much to say
we will not crash today
we will not crash
your words they will meet me
inside my favorite dreams
you know you’re just like me
we’ll scream we’ll sing until we can be
will you be my race car driver?
skip through the CD. till you hear
the words which will catch your ears
you are the sweetest pain
I say pain because I know the clock has struck
midnight
so I will go back to my hole
and just wait for you driver
you know you’re just like me.

In the Background
you stood there in the background while everybody
tried to make their way
towards an image of rush yet you wait in line till
your turn to say
you are all that I know lovely Saturday show
you stood there in the background sulking in your
drink until you see
that Saturday nights don’t seem, so dull when your
cheersing for dreams yeah
there’s another day when the sun will shine and all
will be for you
there’s another day when your enemies will taste their
sour words and you
you scream alone and your fist will moan
you have been waiting for so long
you cry alone and your wrist will moan
you have waited for this all night long but oh
stay with us for a while when you’ll see all that you
do
hang with us for a while when you’ll see all we do
you stood there in the background waiting for the
Saturday night cheers alone

Road to home
feeling the nerves in your stomach as you are about to
sing
mother’s smiling as you cry and then she says “oh you
live a dream”
left turn oh and a right…there
striking the faces the pictures you say “oh I
remember”
but then I don’t cause I smile the smile a thousand
times over
left turn, oh and a right… there
pick it up the memory remains pick it up the Polaroids
of shame
you want to see the world don’t you
yeah you want to be the world don’t you.
you want to be one of us you want to see the world
yeah you want to be one of us and smile at the girls
left turn, oh and a right….there
oh you ….don’t regret a thing because it was fun at
the time
smile at all the remarks you made you wish you could
just leave behind

The Photographer
a perfect lie
did save your life
as she lay stiff and sexless on your bed
just pushed aside
and asked to hide
along with all your brutal reality slides
we had front seats for your slide show
Mr. Demille the close up shot
oh just shut up and let the photo talk
oh just shut your mouth and stand up straight
flash goes the camera called life’s mistakes
we had front seats for your slide show

Clumsy Sky
picture me away
are we alright now?
something’s gonna happen
you’re staring off now to the sky
we’re staring off now
hush heart just play dumb
you are waiting..
are you waiting for my sign?
slip away now
bite our lips now
deep in the crowd
you’re the matter of my secret heart
whisper codes under the hush sky
smiles light up the night
are you waiting?…
you are waiting for my sign
in the back row
we will be alone
as they all walk by
I’m sorry just stop
you say I apologize too much
I’m sorry just stop
I’ll only apologize when I’m wrong
are you ready?
are you ready for my sign …
slip away now
bite our lips now
deep in the crowd
you’re the matter of my secret heart
whisper codes under the hush sky
and we are the stars that light up the night
