lyrics from pratley LP

 

bang bang

in a rut, in a rut, i’ll be all night long

 

comfort squares

so we ran through the yards of the barking dogs

holding hands through the land of the comfort squares

 

we ran past the priests and laughed

he tried to grab my ass

oh my god, phony god

we are dying fast

 

all the comfort there, i could not compare

find it any where, but in her rotting hair

were we different then? are we different now?

what had happened then? could it happen now?

could we take a stand? could we make a sound?

i am older now, i do not know how…

 

so we ran like the others around who found

all the lies that designed our lives

 

oh my god, phony god what am i?

a grid-born kid born a sold to the world?

had i known…

 

i would not grow old

i would die young inside

had i known

i would not grow old

 

 

gigantic

when nerves have lost their wires

and god seems not much higher

when every vein’s on fire

 

i’m gigantic

i’ve gone bad kid

 

my hands all full of eyes

my leg sawed off my thigh

i could not care to cry

 

i’m gigantic

i’ve gone bad kid

i’m gigantic

i’ve gone bad kid

 

 

soldier

say what you want

like they never told you

how to be a soldier

how to be a man

 

say what you can

while it’s off your shoulders

all this getting older

all this having plans

 

how does it feel

getting older?

how does it taste

being a number?

 

pray while you can

for your natural soul fool

god aint what they sold you

he’s living in your hands

 

say all you want

like they never told you

how to be a solider

how to be a man

 

how does it feel

getting older?

how does it taste

being a number?

being a number

being a number

being a number

being a number

 

don’t

i’m dreaming on the pillows we screamed into

i’m sipping from the cup you swore was broken

i’m eating off the table we made love on

i’m fixing up a life that could be fun

 

ah ah ah, don’t

ah ah ah, don’t

ah ah ah, don’t

ah ah ah, don’t

 

i’m dreaming on the pillows we screamed into

i’m sipping from the cup you swore was broken

i’m eating off the table we made love on

i’m fixing up a life that you would live in

 

ah ah ah, don’t

ah ah ah, don’t

ah ah ah, don’t

ah ah ah, don’t

i’m dreaming on… don’t

i’m sipping from… don ’t

i’m eating off… don’t

i’m fixing up… don’t

 

 

book of attraction

baby when i got back to your place

there was nothing i could do for you

baby you looked so rushed and on your way

is that your way of saying truce?

i know i seem so stuck on your face

it’s just the pretty things you do

so baby when i get back from your place

the only thing i’d ask of you…

 

an honorable mention

in your book of attraction

an honorable mention

in your book of attraction

 

an honorable mention

in your book of attraction

 

so baby when i get back from your place

and count the shitty things you do

i think of the times you cried to please stay

and i want nothing to do with you

 

an honorable mention

an honorable mention

an honorable mention

an honorable mention

in your book of attraction

 

 

wouldn’t

i wouldn’t wait until the day i could speak my mind, every line

i wouldn’t wait until the day i could look around and say i’m fine

i wouldn’t wait until the day i start eating right, excercise

i wouldn’t wait until the day i could get a job, stand in line

 

i wouldn’t wait until the day i don’t fantasize, spit out lies

i wouldn’t wait until the day i could look into a human’s eyes

i’ll never wait until the day i compare myself to no-one else

i wouldn’t wait until the day i don’t have to say straight or gay

 

i wouldn’t wait until the day i could speak my mind, every line

i wouldn’t wait until the day i don’t socialize, paralyzed

she wouldn’t wait until the day i felt comfortable between her thighs

i wouldn’t wait until the day i could settle down, stabilize

 

 

thomas

because i love you baby

there’s nothing you can’t do

just reach out and touch me if you want to

 

because i love you baby

there’s nothing you can’t do

just reach out and touch me if you want to

 

because our love is sacred

there’s nothing we can’t do

just hold on and trust me like you used to

 

because i love you baby

there’s nothing you can’t do

just reach out and touch me if you want to

 

none

i was maybe someone

maybe no one, no one at all
