silentbob You look like you could be the mother of a girl
a girl i hated more than any other girl in the world
the way i let her treat me was totally a disgrace
i wanted to permanently wipe that smile off her face, and no i'm not joking, and yes, i was choking
And you look like you could be the mother of a girl
a girl i loved more than other girl in the world
but the way that i treated her was totally a crime
i wanted to permanently wipe the joy out of my mind
and no i'm not joking
and yes, i was choking
and you look like you could be the mother of a boy
a boy who bored me more than other man in the land
the way that he dogged me like i was totally a jerk i wanted to PERMANANTLY POUND HIS PRICK INTO THE DIRT
and no i'm not joking
and yes i was choking.

NineVoltJesus Day after day
i will stop
and i will start

but the day
is in my sight
when I will walk
and i will say:

"why can't i get
just one kiss
why can't i get
just one kiss

believe me
some things ui wouldn't miss
but i look at your pants
and i need a kiss

why can't i get
just one screw
why can't i get
just one screw

believe me
i know what to do
but somethin' wont let me make
love to you

why can't i get
just one fuck
why can't i get
just one fuck

i guess
it's got something to do with luck
but i've wqaited my whole life
for just one.."

day after day
i'll get angry
and i will say
that the day is in my sight
when i'll take a bow
and say good-night

...kitchen at the top of the stairs
can i mix in with your affairs
share a smoke
make a joke
grasp and reach
for... hope

words to memorize
words hypnotize
words make my mouth exercise
words all fail the magic prize
nothing i can say
when i'm in your thighs

come on oh my-my-my
oh my mother

i would love to love you, lover
the city is restless
it's ready to pounce
here in your bedroom ounce for ounce

come on oh my-my-my
oh my mum
take a look now
at what your boy has done
he's walkin' around like he's number one
so he went downtown
and he bought him a gun

don't shoot shoot shoot
that thing at me
don't shoot shoot shoot
that thing at me
you know you've got my sympathy
but don't shoot shoot shoot
that thing at me

things to do
dreams to make
things to do
decisions i've made

just about ready to cut it up
she says:
"wait a minute, honey-
gonna add it up"

gonna add it up
add it up
add it up (see what you got)
add it up and...

day after day
i will walk
and i will say
that the day is in my sight
when i'll take a bow
and say good night"

girl_jane Color me once
color me twice
Everything gonna turn out nice

Everlasting arms you gotta keep me from these false alarms
Alarm, alarm I see you sad
Maybe I see you I'm glad
Maybe maybe the fire of her desire

Patience patience said the man
Patience patience I can't understand
Patience like a man and a wife I got patience on my neck like a cold cold knife

I say Jack be nimble Jack fall dead
Jack bend over and give Jilly head
Oh you gotta help my body heal my soul

Dead men working a sinner a saint
Mixing up a pail of paint
Painted the house, black as night
When the sun came up the house was white

gotta go on
you gotta go on
we gotta go on
you gotta go on
you gotta go on
go on
go on
try and live life like I couldn't...

Arwyn We got the mother and the kids
we got the guy and his date
we all get mad
we all get late
looks like somebody forgot about us
standin on the corner
waitin' for a bus
say hey mister driver man
don't be slow
cause I got somewhere I got to go
say hey mister driver man
drive that thing fast
my precious time keep slippin' past
lets call the mayor lets complain
looks like the city's done to us again
tied up in traffic what'ya know
the damn city bus moves so slow
I said hey mister driver man
don't be slow
cause I got somewhere I got to go
say hey mister driver man
drive that thing fast
my precious time keep slippin' past

silentbob I'm gnawing on the knowledge
That I have been burnt
And I'm learning things that I
Should've already learnt
Everyone I ever knew
Was so kind and coy
I was with a girl
But it felt like I was with a boy
I can't even remember
If we were lovers
Or if I just wanted to
But I held her in my arms
I held her in my arms
I held her in my arms
But it wasn't you
I will not kill
The one thing that I love
In this world of wreckage
I look above
Help me Lord
Help me understand
What it means to be a boy
What it means to be a man

gja is young again Because the folks around here seem to have a perpetual love affair with them they tour a lot.
Generally they have been less than impressive...even accounting for my increasingly jaded view.

The first time though was pivotal.

A beer hall by the beach.
They came on very late. Very late...
After a support act called "Box the Jesuit" - an outfit who'd been doing the local rounds for years.
The troops had gone feral - too much beer, too much waiting around.

They took the stage, and, be it their gear or mine - they reduced everyone in that shed to blathering wrecks.
Oh for those days, those painful, painless days.

And, on a lighter note, I broke my toe on my way home from that particular gig.
Releasing some angst on a suspiciously disguised concrete block.
It didnít hurt a bit.
