we took a weekend, drove to provo. the snow was white and fluffy. but a weekend in utah won't fix what's wrong with us. the gray sky was vast and real cryptic above me. i wanted you to love me like you used to do. we took two weeks in the bahamas. went out dancing every night. tried to fight the creeping sense of dread with temporal things. most of the time i guess i felt alright. but i wanted you to love me like you used to do. but you cannot run and you cannot hide, from the wreck we've made of our house, and from the mess inside. we went down to new orleans one weekend in the spring. looked hard for what we'd lost. it was painful to admit it, but we couldn't find a thing. i wanted you to love me like you used to do. we went to new york city in september. took the train out of manhattan to the grand army stop. found that bench we'd sat together on a thousand years ago when i felt such love for you i thought my heart was gonna pop. i wanted you to love me like you used to do. but i cannot run. and i can't hide. from the wreck we've made of our house. from the mess inside.
you roared into the driveway of our southwestern ranchstyle house on a new [motorcycle] all yellow and black fresh out of the showroom our house faced west so the big orange sun positioned at your back lit up your magnificent silhouhette how much better, how much better could my life get? nine hundred cubic centimeters of raw whining power no outstanding warrants for my arrests whoa, the pirate's life for me I hopped on the back of the bike wrapped my arms around you I sank my face into your hair and then I inhaled as deeply as I possibly could you were sweet and delicious as the warm desert air and you pointed your headlamp toward the horizon we were the one thing in the galaxy god didn't have his eyes on nine hundred cc's of raw whining power no outstanding warrants for my arrest goddamn, the pirate's life for me
down here where the heat's so fine I'll drink to your health and you drink to mine as we try to make the money we scored out in vegas hold out for a while we drink vodka from russia we got chocolates from belgian we have our strawberries flown in from england but none of the money we spend seems to do as much good in the end I got a cracked engine block both of us do got a house, the jewels, the italian racecar they don't make us feel better about who we are I got termites in the framework so do you down here where the watermelon grows so sweet where I worship the ground underneath of your feet we are experts in the art of frivilous spending it's gone on like this for three years I guess and we're drunk all the time and our lives are a mess and the [something] love we swore to protect with our bodies is stumbling across it's bleak ending but none of the rage in our eyes seems to finish it off where it lies I got sugar in the fuel lines both of us do got a fight and the lies that we both love to tell fail to send our love to it's reward down in hell I got pudding for a backbone but so do you La la la La, hey hey.
she came in on the redeye to dallas-fort worth. all the way from sunny taipei. skin the color of a walnut shell, and a baseball cap holding down her black hair. and she came here after midnight. the hot weather made her feel right at home. come on in, we haven't slept for weeks. drink some of this. it'll put color in your cheeks. he drove from in from mexicali, no worse for wear. money to burn, time to kill. but five minutes looking in his eyes and we all knew he was broken pretty bad, so we gave him what we had. we cleared a space for him to sleep in, and we let the silence that's our trademark make its presence felt. come on in, we haven't slept for weeks. drink some of this. it'll put color in your cheeks. they came in by the dozens, walking or crawling. some were bright-eyed. some were dead on their feet. and they came from zimbabwe, or from soviet, georgia. east saint louis, or from paris, or they lived across the street. but they came, and when they'd finally made it here, it was the least that we could do to make our welcome clear. come on in, we haven't slept for weeks. drink some of this. it'll put color in your cheeks.
the best ever death metal band out of denton were a couple of guys who'd been friends since grade school one was named sirus the other was jeff and they practiced twice a week in jeff's bedroom the best ever death metal band out of denton never settled on a name but the top three contenders after weeks of debate were satan's fingers and the killers and the hospital bums jeff and sirus believed in their hearts they were headed for stage lights and lear jets and fortune and fame so in script that made prominent use of a pentagram they stenciled their drumheads and guitars with their names this is how sirus got sent to the school where they told him he'd be famous and this was why jeff in the letters he'd write to his friend helped develop a plan to get even when you punish a person for dreaming his dream don't expect him to thank or forgive you the best ever death metal band out of denton will in time both outpace and outlive you hail satan hail satan tonight hail satan hail, hail
Sophomore year You rushed for an average Of 8 1/3 yards per carry All eyes were on you Junior year You blew your knee out At an out-of-town game Nowhere to go but Down, down, down Nothing but the ground for you to fall to By July Youd made a whole bunch of new friends People you used to look down on And youd figured out A way to make real money Giving Ns to your friends And it felt stupendous: Chrome spokes on your Japanese bike But selling acid was a bad idea And selling it to a cop was a worse one And new laws said that 17-year-olds could do federal time You were the first one, so I sing this song for you William Standaforth Donahue Your grandfather rode the boat Over from Ireland, but You made a bad decision or two.
The song is "No Children" by the Mountain Goats. The video is a visual interpretation for fun, not profit nor infringement intended. Thanks for your input.
