London Residency

LONDON RESIDENCY
(Corwood 0821)
DAY TWO

I LAUGHED
ANYONE OUT THERE ALONE
YOU KNOW, BE ALONE
LIVE ALONE
DON’T HAVE NOBODY
DO THINGS ALONE
FEEL ALONE, LONELY

WELL, I TELL YOU WHAT
YOU STOP THAT DRINKING
AND THEN YOU’LL KNOW WHAT ALONE IS

ALCOHOL’S YOUR FRIEND
IT BE WITH YOU WHEN YOU’RE ALONE
AND THEN YOU’RE NOT ALONE

YOU’RE DRINKING AND IT’S WARM
YEAH YOU KNOW THAT FRIENDSHIP IN A BOTTLE

PRETTY SOON YOU’LL BE ASLEEP
AND THEN TOMORROW DAY THERE’S PEOPLE
CARRY YOU THROUGH TILL THE NIGHT
AND YOU SEE THE ALONE
BUT MAKE FRIENDS
WITH THE BOTTLE

WELL, STOP THAT DRINKING AND THEN
YOU’LL REALLY KNOW
WHAT IT IS TO BE ALONE

WHEN THEM BOTTLES COME DOWN
AND CRASH ALL OVER THE STREET
AND SPILL ON THE FLOOR
AND THERE’S NO MORE
IT’S NOT SO BAD
YOU START TO FEEL THINGS
AS THEY REALLY ARE

OH I KNOW
THAT ONE DON’T HURT
AND TWO DON’T HURT
AND TEN DON’T HURT

I NEVER DID FEEL ANY PAIN
I COULD ALWAYS TALK MY WAY OUT OF IT
SAYING STUPID THINGS
EVEN I LAUGHED AT MYSELF

YOU CAN TAKE OUT ALL THAT RUBBISH
LEAVE YOUR MIND CLEAR
OF ALL THE CLUTTER
OF A DRUNK STUPID HAZE

AH, BUT IT’S TOO HARD
RATHER, IT’S TOO EASY
TO KEEP DRINKING, THAT IS

AH BUT MY OH MY
IT’S GOOD TO FEEL REAL
EVEN IF IT’S STONE COLD LONELY
AT LEAST YOU CAN SEE THE DISTANCE
YOU LEFT BETWEEN ALL ELSE
NOT EVEN TRYING
IT’S JUST THE WAY IT IS

WHERE’S THE COTTON
I DON’T KNOW WHO I AM ANYMORE
WHY DIDN’T YOU LEAVE YOUR PAD HERE
YOU TOOK IT AWAY
I HEAR THE CLINK OF YOUR DISHES
WHERE’S THE COTTON

THERE WAS A NEW DIMENSION OF FANTASTIC MUSIC
ANIMALS WERE DANCING ON THE WALLS
JIMMY AND JANE DIDN’T KNOW WHERE TO GO
SO THEY SAT DOWN TRANSFIXED
WHERE’S THE COTTON

THE TRAIL OF PAPER WAS MILES OF EMAILS
I COULDN’T BEGIN TO FIND ANYTHING
I WROTE A NOTE AND TORE IT UP
PUT IT WITH THE WASTE PAPER
WHERE’S THE COTTON

THEN JIMMY AND JANE GOT RELIGION
THEY LEVITATED AND ALL THAT
ME I KEPT SEARCHING THE HALLS
FOR YOU HIDING IN THE CORNER
WHERE’S THE COTTON

I COULDN’T FIND YOU
I LOOKED ALL AROUND MY ROOM LAST NIGHT
I COULDN’T FIND YOU
I LOOKED HIGH AND LOW
BUT YOU WEREN’T THERE

I LOOKED ON THE TABLE
I LOOKED UNDER THE BED
YOU WEREN’T SITTING IN THE CHAIR
YOU DIDN’T TURN ON THE LIGHT

IT WAS DARK ALL AROUND
MAYBE THAT’S WHY I COULDN’T FIND YOU
I DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE UP
I LOOKED ALL NIGHT LONG

AND WHEN THE SUN CAME UP
YOU STILL WEREN’T THERE
I WENT ABOUT MY THINGS
WITHOUT YOU

BUT YOU WERE ON MY MIND
I IMAGINED YOU

AND THEN WHEN I SAW YOU
YOU STILL WEREN’T THERE

WAIT A MINUTE
SITTIN’ ON A BARSTOOL YEAUGH
DREAMIN’ ‘BOUT MY THOUGHTS OF WOE
I WANNA BE DEAD YEAH
DON’T WANNA BE ALIVE

I DRINK THIS BOOZE SO I CAN DIE
WAKE UP TOMORROW AND DO IT AGAIN
BUT WAIT A MINUTE NO NO
THIS IS NOT WHERE I WANT TO GO

SO I’LL GET UP AND WALK AWAY
DO WHATEVER COMES MY WAY
I DON’T HAVE TO SIT AND DIE
ON THE BAR MY HEAD DOES LIE

I’LL STOP DOIN’ THIS EVERY DAY
SEE WHAT ELSE WILL COME MY WAY
MAYBE IT’S OK ONCE IN A WHILE
BUT EVERY DAY IS NOT MY STYLE

SITTIN’ ON A BARSTOOL YEOUGH
DREAMIN’ ‘BOUT MY THOUGHTS OF WOE
I WANNA BE DEAD YEAH
DON’T WANNA BE ALIVE

WAIT A MINUTE IT’S NOT THE END
I’M WALKIN’ OUT OF HERE RIGHT NOW

CHOCTAW BABY
CHOCTAW BABY BE
CHOCTAW BABY BE
HEY CHOCTAW BABY BE
CHOCTAW BABY BE WITH ME

NOW YOU BEEN SAYIN’ ALL AROUND
YOU GOT ME BEIN’ ON THE GROUND
WELL CHOCTAW BABY THAT’S ALL RIGHT
COME ON OVER HERE AND BE WITH ME

CHOCTAW BABY BE
CHOCTAW BABY BE
HEY CHOCTAW BABY BE
CHOCTAW BABY BE WITH ME

I’M GLAD YOU’RE LOVIN’ ME THIS WAY
‘CAUSE IF YOU WEREN’T I WOULDN’T PLAY
ALL THE GAMES I PLAY WITH YOU
HEY CHOCTAW BABY COME AND STAY

HEY YOU THING YOU THING YOU THING
YOU GONNA MAKE MY BELL RING
SO I CAN KNOW THAT I’M ALIVE
HEY CHOCTAW BABY COME AND SEE

I’LL SAY THAT YOU GOT EVERYTHING
ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND I GO
WHOA HEY DON’T YOU KNOW
CHOCTAW BABY BE WITH ME

THE STARS
PLEE EE EE EZZ
BE THE ONE
THAT TAKES ME TO THE STARS

IF YOU JUST HOLD ME
AND DON’T LET ME GO

IF YOU JUST KISS ME
ONCE MORE JUST LIKE THAT

I’LL STAY HERE ALWAYS
I WILL NEVER GO AWAY

SO PLEE EE EE EZZ
BE THE ONE
THAT TAKES ME TO THE STARS

I’LL GIVE YOU ME
ALL THAT I AM

I’LL BE FOR YOU
ALL THAT YOU WANT ME TO

AND NOW I ASK YOU ONCE AGAIN
PLEE EE EE EEZZ
BE THE ONE
THAT TAKES ME TO THE STARS

LOST JOURNEY
REMEMBER WHEN YOU TALKED TO YOUR SHOE
AND TOLD IT WHERE TO TAKE YOUR FOOT
SO NOW WHEN YOU HAVE NO CLOTHES
WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOUR BODY

THROUGH THE SPHINX OF YOUR THOUGHTS YOU KNOW
HOW TO DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
EXCEPT YOUR MIND AND YOUR BODY DON’T AGREE
TO YOUR DISMAY AND YOUR FAILURE TO ACT

SO NOW WHERE IS THE ACCORDION PLAYER
WHERE IS THE ONE WHO CARED WHO YOU WERE
YOU’RE FALLING OUT OF ALL YOUR FRIENDS
EVEN THOSE WHO LOVE YOU MOST

ARE YOU GOING TO THE TRIALS YOU KNEW
ARE YOU FORGETTING WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
OH HOW DO I WAKE FROM THIS UNCONSCIOUS
HOW DO MY DESIRES BECOME MY LIFE

A THOUSAND THANK YOUS AREN’T ENOUGH
LOVING YOU SO MUCH DOESN’T WIN YOUR HEART
NO ONE PUTS THEIR TRUST IN FAILURE
NO MATTER THE PLEDGES OF SUCCESS

GROUND TO THE EARTH LIKE PEBBLES OF SAND
YOUR FOOTSTEPS ON ME WALKING AWAY

YOU TOLD ME
YOU TOLD ME YOU WANTED
NOTHING TO DO WITH ME
I LEFT

YOU TOLD ME IT WAS
TIME TO LEAVE
I LEFT

YOU TOLD ME NOT TO
TALK ABOUT IT
I LEFT

I WALKED ’TIL THE SUN WENT DOWN

YOU TOLD ME YOU WANTED
NOTHING TO DO WITH ME
I LEFT

YOU TOLD ME IT WAS
TIME TO LEAVE
I LEFT

YOU TOLD ME NOT TO
TALK ABOUT IT
I LEFT

I WALKED ’TIL THE SUN WENT DOWN

NOTHING
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
NOTHING

BECAUSE
WHEN YOU KNOW NOTHING
YOU’RE SO SUBLIME

I WANT YOU TO LOVE ME
LIKE YOU’RE NOTHING

BECAUSE
WHEN YOU LOVE ME LIKE YOU’RE NOTHING
YOU’RE EVERYTHING

I WANT YOU TO EXIST
IN ME
AND THEN WE’LL BE TOGETHER

I WANT TO BE WITH YOU
CAN YOU CEASE TO BE
AND LOVE ME

I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I WANT YOU TO KNOW
NOTHING

TELL ME
BREAK IT TO MY HEART
JUST A LITTLE BIT SLOWLY
AND I’LL WANDER THROUGH
ALL THE DREAMS THAT I MADE

TELL ME ONCE AGAIN
IS IT TRULY REALLY REAL
THESE THINGS THAT YOU’RE SAYING
ARE THEY TRULY REAL

I’VE SPENT A LIFETIME
WANDERING THROUGH TIME
I’VE SEEN A LOT OF THINGS
BUT THEY DIDN’T SEEM LIKE YOU

I THOUGHT I KNEW YOU
SOME DAY LONG AGO
ANOTHER TIME MAYBE
ASK IT OF THE STARS

BUT I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT
I’D BE LISTENING TO YOU

HERE TO STAY
YOU’RE ALIVE
THAT’S OK
YOU’RE ALIVE
THAT’S OKAY
YOU’RE ALIVE
YOU’RE ALIVE THAT’S OKAY

YOU’RE
YOU’RE HERE TO STAY
YOU CAN GO THAT WAY
YOU CAN GO THAT WAY
YOU CAN GO THAT WAY
STAY HERE

GOOD MADNESS
THERE ISN’T ENOUGH MADNESS IN THE WORLD
GOOD MADNESS

YOU KNOW THE KIND
WHERE PEOPLE DON’T USE YOU
YOU KNOW THE KIND
WHERE PEOPLE DON’T KILL YOU

THERE’S NOT ENOUGH GOOD MADNESS IN THE WORLD
THERE’S NOT

YOU NEED TO HAVE SOME GOOD MADNESS
IN YOUR LIFE

YOU, YOU NEED GOOD MADNESS
IN YOUR LIFE
WHERE YOUR DREAMS ARE MAD

HE LOVED ME
HE WAS THE ONLY GUY
WHO EVER LOVED ME
HE WAS THE ONLY GUY
WHO BROUGHT ME FLOWERS
HE WAS THE ONLY GUY
WHO WAS EVER NICE TO ME

SO I DIDN’T CALL AN AMBULANCE
WHEN HE DIED
IN MY HOUSE
I COULDN’T BEAR TO PART WITH HIM

BUT I SWEAR, I SWEAR
IF YOU DIE
IN MY HOUSE
I WON’T LET YOUR BODY LINGER
I’LL CALL AN AMBULANCE

BYE

TWISTED TONGUE
YOU HAVE A TWISTED TONGUE
AND IT’S ALL IN A KNOT
YOU THINK YOUR TONGUE IS SILVER
BUT GUESS WHAT
IT IS NOT

YOU HAVE A TWISTED TONGUE
IT’S ALL IN A KNOT
YOU, YOU THINK IT’S SILVER
BUT GUESS WHAT
IT IS NOT

TRIPE TALES
HE SCRAMBLED UP STORIES
HE SCRAMBLED UP STORIES
AND HE DEFINITELY WAS NOT THE CREATIVE TYPE
ALL HIS RIDICULOUSNESS WAS BASED ON HYPE

HE TRIED TO STRIKE
WHEN HE THOUGHT THINGS WERE RIPE

SCARED
SO SCARED

BUT I SOON REALIZED HE WAS FULL OF TRIPE

VAIN THUG
HE SPENT HIS LIFE STEPPING ON FLOWERS
HE SPENT ALL OF HIS LIFE STEPPING ON FLOWERS
HE DID IT FOR A NUMBER OF HOURS
HE LIKED TO KILL THE FLOWERS
HE LIKED TO WATCH THINGS DIE

HE LIKED TO MAKE THINGS DIE
HE LIKED TO STEP ON FLOWERS
HE LIKED TO KILL IT ALL

HE HAD NO LIFE
HE HATED HIS WIFE
SHE BORED HIM
HE LIKED TO THINK SHE WAS A FLOWER
HE STEPPED ON THEM ALL

HE WAS VERY WORTHLESS
BUT FOR SOME REASON HE HAD A NAME
THERE WERE SILLY, SILLY MINDED PEOPLE
WHO WERE WILLING TO PLAY HIS STUPID USELESS GAME
AND THAT’S HOW HE GOT BY
THINKING HIS BRAIN WAS REALLY, REALLY SLY
BUT ME I ALWAYS ASKED
WHY THE HELL WHY COULD SUCH A USELESS HUMAN GET BY?

JUST SAY NO
NOT TO DRUGS
SAY NO
TO PEOPLE WHO ARE THUGS
PEOPLE WHO ARE BULLIES
WHO TRY TO MAKE A NAME
BECAUSE THEY DON’T
HAVE A WORTHWHILE BRAIN
AND THEY ARE SO VAIN
THEY’RE SO, SO INCREDIBLY VAIN
