 Thank U

 

how ' bout getting off of these antibiotics

how ' bout stopping eating when I'm full up

how ' bout them transparenr dangling carrots

how ' bout that ever elusive kudo

 

thank you india

thank you terror

thank you disillusionment

thank you frailty

thank you consequence

thank you thank you silence

 

how ' bout me not blaming you for everything

how ' bout me enjoying the moment for once

how ' bout how good it feels to finally forgive you

how ' bout grieving it all one at a time

 

thank you india

thank you terror

thank you disillusionment

thank you frailty

thank you consequence

thank you thank you silence

 

the moment I let go of it was the moment

I got more than I could handle

the moment I jumped off of it

was the moment I touched down

 

how ' bout no longer being masochistic

how ' bout remembering your divinity

how ' bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out

how ' bout not equating death with stopping

 

thank you india

thank you providence

thank you disillusionment

thank you nothingness

thank you clarity

thank you thank you silence

 

 

 

Head over feet

 

I had no choice but to hear you

You stated your case time and again

I thought about it

 

You treat me like I'm a princess

I'm not used to liking that

You ask how my day was

 

Chorus:

You've already won me over in spite of me

Don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet

Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are

I couldn't help it

It's all your fault

 

Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole

You're so much braver than I gave you credit for

That's not lip service

 

Repeat Chorus

 

You are the bearer of unconditional things

You held your breath and the door for me

Thanks for your patience

 

You're the best listener that I've ever met

You're my best friend

Best friend with benefits

What took me so long

 

I've never felt this healthy before

I've never wanted something rational

I am aware now

I am aware now

 

Repeat Chorus

 

 

 

 

 Eight Easy Steps

 

how to stay paralyzed by fear of abandonment

how to defer to men in solvable predicaments

how to control someone to be a carbon copy of you

how to have that not work and have them run away from you

 

how to keep people at arms length and never get to close

how to mistrust the ones who supposedly love the most

how to pretend you're fine and don't need help from anyone

how to feel worthless so fast you're helping

 

I'll teach you all this in 8 easy steps

In the course of a lifetime, I never forgot

I'll show you how to in 8 easy steps

I'll show you how leaderships were taught by the best

 

how to hate women when you're supposed to be a feminist

how to play all highest when you're really a hypocrite

how to hate god when you're a player and a spiritualist

how to sabotage when you're in tough seas

 

I'll teach you all this in 8 easy steps

In the course of a lifetime, I never forgot

I'll show you how to in 8 easy steps

I'll show you how leaderships were taught by the best

 

I've been doing research for years

I've been practicing my ass off

I've been waiting my whole life for this moment, I swear to you

Culminating just to be this well versed leader before you

 

I'll teach you all this in 8 easy steps

In the course of a lifetime, I never forgot

I'll show you how to in 8 easy steps

I'll show you how leaderships were taught by the best

 

how to lie to yourself and thereby to everyone else

how to keep smiling when you're thinking of killing yourself

how to know them all the too well by going with them

how to stay stuck in your life hating them

 

I'll teach you all this in 8 easy steps

In the course of a lifetime, I never forgot

I'll show you how to in 8 easy steps

I'll show you how leaderships were taught by the best

 

 

Everything

 

i can be an asshole of the grandest kind

i can withhold like it's going out of style

i can be the moodiest baby

and you've never met anyone as negative

as i am sometimes

 

i am the wisest woman you've ever met

i am the kindest soul with whom you've connected

i have the bravest heart you've ever seen

and you've never met anyone as positive

as i am sometimes

 

u see everything u see every part

u see all my light and u love my dark

u dig everything of which I'm ashamed

there's not anything to which you can't relate

and you're still here

 

i blame everyone else not my own partaking

my passive aggressiveness can be devastating

i'm terrifying and mistrusting

and you've never met anyone as closed down as I am sometimes

 

u see everything u see every part

u see all my light and u love my dark

u dig everything of which I'm ashamed

there's not anything to which you can't relate

and you're still here

 

but i resist persist and speaks none of them i know

but i resist your love no matter how low or high i go

 

I'm the funniest woman you've ever known

I'm the dullest woman you've ever known

I'm the most gorgeous woman you've ever known

and you've never met anyone as everything as I am sometimes

 

u see everything u see every part

u see all my light and u love my dark

u dig everything of which I'm ashamed

there's not anything to which you can't relate

and you're still here

 

 

 

Crazy

 

In a church by the face

He talks about the people going under

Only child know

A man decides after seventy years

That what he goes there for

Is to unlock the door

While those around him criticize and sleep

And through a fractal on that breaking wall

I see you my friend and touch your face again

Miracles will happen as we trip

 

But we're never gonna survive unless

We get a little crazy

No we're never gonna survive unless

We are a little

Cray cray crazy

 

Crazy are the people walking through my head

One of thems got a gun to shoot the other one

And yet together they were friends at school

Get it, get it, get it, yeah!

If all were there when we first took the pill

Then maybe then maybe then maybe then maybe

Miracles will happen as we speak

 

But we're never gonna survive unless

We get a little crazy

No we're never gonna survive unless

We are a little

Crazy

No no we'll never survive unless we get a little bit

 

In a sky full of people only some want to fly

Isn't that crazy

In a world full of people only some want to fly

Isn't that crazy

Crazy

In a heaven of people there's only some want to fly

Ain't that crazy

Oh babe Oh darlin'

In a world full of people there's only some want to fly

Isn't that crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy

 

But we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy crazy

No we're never gonna to survive unless we are a little crazy

But we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy crazy

No we're never gonna to survive unless we are a little crazy

No no never survive unless we get a little bit

 

And then you see things

The size of which you've never known before

They'll break it

Someday

Only child know

Them things

The size

Of which you've never known before

Someday

 

 

 

Ironic

 

An old man turned ninety-eight

He won the lottery and died the next day

It's a black fly in your Chardonnay

It's a death row pardon two minutes too late

Isn't it ironic... don't you think

 

Chorus:

It's like rain on your wedding day

It's a free ride when you've already paid

It's the good advice that you just didn't take

Who would've thought... it figures

 

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly

He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye

He waited his whole damn life to take that flight

And as the plane crashed down he thought

"Well isn't this nice..."

And isn't it ironic... don't you think

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you

When you think everything's okay and everything's going right

And life has a funny way of helping you out when

You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up

In your face

 

A traffic jam when you're already late

A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break

It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife

It's meeting the man of my dreams

And then meeting his beautiful wife

And isn't it ironic... don't you think

A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...

 

Repeat chorus

 

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you

Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out

Helping you out

 

 

 

Princes Familiar

please be tapped into your femininity

please be able to take the wheel from me

please be crazy and curious

 

papa love your princess so that she will find loving princes familiar papa cry for your princess so that she will find gentle princes

You learn

 

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone

I recommend walking around naked in your living room

Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)

It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)

Wait until the dust settles

 

Chorus:

 

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

 

I recommend biting off more than you can chew to anyone

I certainly do

I recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at any time

Feel free

Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind)

Hold it up (to the rays)

You wait and see when the smoke clears

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do)

Melt it down (you're gonna have to eventually anyway)

The fire trucks are coming up around the bend

 

Repeat Chorus

 

You grieve you learn

You choke you learn

You laugh you learn

You choose you learn

You pray you learn

You ask you learn

You live you learn

 

 

 

Simple Together

 

You've been my golden best friend

And now with post-demise at hand

I can't go to you for consolation

Cuz we're off limits during this transition

 

This grief overwhelms me

It burns in my stomach

And I can't stop bumping into things

 

I thought we'd be simple together

I thought we'd be happy together

thought we'd be limitless together

I thought we'd be precious together

But I was sadly mistaken

 

You've been my soulmate and then some

I remembered you the moment I met you

With you I knew god's face was handsome

With you I saw fun and expansion

 

This loss is numbing me it pierces my chest

And I can't stop dropping everything

 

I thought we'd be sexy together

thought we'd be evolving together

I thought we'd have children together

I thought we'd be family together

But I was sadly mistaken

 

If I had a bill for all the philosophies I shared

If I had a penny for all the possibilities I presented

If I had a dime for every hand thrown up in the air

My wealth would render this no less severe

 

I thought we'd be genius together

I thought we'd be healing together

I thought we'd be growing together

thought we'd be adventurous together

But I was sadly mistaken

 

thought we'd be exploring together

thought we'd be inspired together

I thought we'd be flying together

thought we'd be on fire together

But I was sadly mistaken

 

 

 

 

You oughta know

 

I want you to know that I'm happy for you

I wish nothing but the best for you both

An older version of me

Is she perverted like me

Would she go down on your in a theater

Does she speak eloquently

And would she have your baby

I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother

 

'Cause the love that you gave that we made

wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no

And every time you speak her name

Does she know how you told me you'd hold me

Until you died, 'til you died

But you're still alive

 

Chorus:

And I'm here to remind you

Of the mess you left when you went away

It's not fair to deny me

Of the cross I bear that you gave to me

You, you, you oughta know

 

You seem very well, things look peaceful

I'm not quite as well, I thought you should know

Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity

I hate to but you in the middle of dinner

It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced

Are you thinking of me when you fuck her

 

'Cause the love that you gave that we made

wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no

And every time you speak her name

Does she know how you told me you'd hold me

Until you died, 'til you died

But you're sill alive

 

Repeat Chorus

 

'Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me

And I'm not gonna fade

As soon as you close your eyes and you know it

And every time I scratch my nails down someone else's back

I hope you feel it...well can you feel it

 

Repeat Chorus

 

 

 

That I would be good

 

that I would be good even if i did nonthing

that I would be good even if i got the thumbs down

that I would be good if i got and stayed sick

that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

 

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt

that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth

that I would be great if I was no longer Queen

that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

 

that I would be loved even when I numb myself

that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed

that I would be loved even when i was fuming

that I would be good even if I was clingy

 

that I would be good even if I lost sanity

that I would be good

whether with or without you

 

 

 

Sister Blister

 

you and me we're cut from the same cloth

it seems to some we famously get along

but you and me are strangers to each other

cuz you and me are competitive to the bone

 

such tragedy to trample on each other with how much we've endured

with the state this land is in

you and me feel joined by only gender

we are not all for one and one for all 

 

sister blister we fight to please the brothers

we think their acceptance is how we win

they're happy we're climbing over each other

to beg the club of boys to let us in

 

you and me estranged from the mother

you and me have felt impotent in our skin

you and me have taken it out on each other

you and me disloyal to the feminine 

 

such a pity to disavow each other with how far we've come

with how strong we've been

you and me are on this pendulum together

you and me with scarcity still fueling 

 

sister blister we fight to please the brothers

we think their acceptance is how we win

they're happy we're climbing over each other

to beg the club of boys to let us in

 

we may not have priorities same

we may not even like each other

we may not be hugely anti-men

but such a cost to dishonor a sister

 

you and me have made it harder for the other

we forget how hard separatism has been

you and me we can help change their minds together

you and me in alignment until the end 

 

sister blister we fight to please the brothers

we think their acceptance is how we win

they're happy we're climbing over each other

to beg the club of boys to let us in

 

 

 

So Unsexy

 

Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly

One small sideways look and I feel so ungood

Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make

Me feel the way I thought only my father could

 

Oh these little rejections how they seem so real to me

One forgotten birthday I'm all but cooked

How these little abandonments seem to sting so easily

I'm 13 again am I 13 for good?

 

I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful

So unloved for someone so fine

I can feel so boring for someone so interesting

So ignorant for someone of sound mind

 

Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me

One forgotten phone call and I'm deflated

Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me

Your hand pulling away and I'm devastated

 

When will you stop leaving baby?

When will I stop deserting baby?

When will I start staying with myself?

 

Oh these little projections how they keep springing from me

I jump my ship as I take it personally

Oh these little rejections how they disappear quickly

The moment I decide not to abandon me

 

 

Hands Clean

 

If it weren't for your maturity none of this would have happened

If you weren't so wise beyond your years I would've been able to control myself

If it weren't for my attention you wouldn't have been successful and

If it weren't for me you would never have amounted to very much

 

Ooh this could be messy

But you don't seem to mind

Ooh don't go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

 

We'll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

And I have honored your request for silence

And you've washed your hands clean of this

 

You're essentially an employee and I like you having to depend on me

You're kind of my protégé and one day you'll say you learned all you know from me

I know you depend on me like a young thing would to a guardian

I know you sexualize me like a young thing would and I think I like it

 

Ooh this could get messy

But you don't seem to mind

Ooh don't go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

 

We'll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

And I have honored your request for silence

And you've washed your hands clean of this

 

what part of our history's reinvented and under rug swept?

what part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?

what with this distance it seems so obvious?

 

Just make sure you don't tell on me especially to members of your family

We best keep this to ourselves and not tell any members of our inner posse

I wish I could tell the world cuz you're such a pretty thing when you're done up properly

I might want to marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep your firm body

 

Ooh this could be messy and

Ooh I don't seem to mind

Ooh don't go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

 

 

Mercy

English translation from Hungarian:

We have slaughtered

In the garden of beauty

Digging graves instead of planting

Mercy for the crucified

A bitter justice

Begging eternity for love

We're nothing

We're everything

I am nothing

Yet I am everybody

We're nothing

And yet we are

Wisdom lights up life's road

I know you

 

 

 

Still

 

I am the harm which you inflict

I am your brilliance and frustration

I'm the nuclear bombs if they're to hit

I'm your immaturaty and your indignance

I am your misfits and your praised

I am your doubt and your conviction

I am your charity and your rape

I am your grasping and expectation

 

I see you averting your glances

I see you cheering on the war

I see you ignoring your children

And I love you still And I love you still

 

I am your joy and your regret

I am your fury and your elation

I am your yearning and your sweat

I am your faithless and your religion

I see you altering history

I see you abusing the land

I see you and your selective amnesia

And I love you still And I love you still

 

I am your tragedy and your fortune

I am your crisis and delight

I am your profits and your prophets

I am your art, I am your bytes

I am your death and your decisions

I am your passion and your plights

I am your sickness and convalescence

I am your weapons and your light

 

I see you holding your grudges

I see you gunning them down

I see you silencing your sisters

And I love you still And I love you (still)

 

I see you lie to your country

I see you forcing them out

I see you blaming each other

And I love you still And I love you still

 

 

Uninvited

 

like anyone would be

I am flattered by your fascination with me

like any hotblooded woman

I have simply wanted an object to crave

 

but you you're not allowed

you're uninvited

an unfortunate slight

 

must be strangely exciting

to watch the stoic squirm

must be somewhat heartening

to watch shepherd meet shepherd

 

but you you're not allowed

you're uninvited

an unfortunate slight

 

like any uncharted territory

I must seem greatly intriguing

you speak of my love like

you have experienced love like mine before

 

but this is not allowed

you're uninvited

an unfortunate slight

 

I don't think you unworthy

I need a moment to deliberate

 

 

Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love) (Ella Fitzgerald cover)

 

Birds do it, bees do it

Even educated fleas do it

Let's do it, let's fall in love

 

In Spain, the best upper sets do it

Lithuanians and Letts do it

Let's do it, let's fall in love

 

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it

Not to mention the Fins

Folks in Siam do it - think of Siamese twins

 

Some Argentines, without means, do it

People say in Boston even beans do it

Let's do it, let's fall in love

 

Romantic sponges, they say, do it

Oysters down in oyster bay do it

Let's do it, let's fall in love

 

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it

Even lazy jellyfish, do it

Let's do it, let's fall in love

 

Electric eels I might add do it

Though it shocks em I know

Why ask if shad do it - Waiter bring me

"shad roe"

 

In shallow shoals English soles do it

Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it

Let's do it, let's fall in love

 

 

Hand In My Pocket

 

I'm broke but I'm happy

I'm poor but I'm kind

I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah

I'm high but I'm grounded

I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed

I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

What it all comes down to

Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine

I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is giving a high five

I feel drunk but I'm sober

I'm young and I'm underpaid

I'm tired but I'm working, yeah

I care but I'm restless

I'm here but I'm really gone

I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to

Is that everything's gonna be quite alright

I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is flicking a cigarette

And what it all comes down to

Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet

I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is giving the peace sign

I'm free but I'm focused

I'm green but I'm wise

I'm hard but I'm friendly baby

I'm sad but I'm laughing

I'm brave but I'm chickenshit

I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

And what it all boils down to

Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet

I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is playing the piano

And what it all comes down to my friends

Is that everything's just fine fine fine

I've got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is hailing a taxi cab...
