"This the Trip" Lyrics


This The Trip
Bottle Rocket
Know What You Mean
Nobody's Home
Flesh And Bones
Perfect
Say Good-Bye
Tumblin' Down
Under The Sun
Shelter
Some Things Are Free

This The Trip
Mile high in the sunlight
Your sex is radioactive
Neutron smash if I fall to ash
It would be the way to go
Red hot heat I could feel complete
With your liquid drip all around me
Could you come, come on give me some
Your curves could drive me home.

This the trip, trip on baby come along
This the trip, trip on with your give me some
This the trip, trip on baby come along
This the trip, trip on with your give me some

Hung high in your desert sky
Iíve been through the sundance
Some will say thereís another way
But Iíll take the surest road
We got love and we rise above
Well your pulse is my condition
Picture fall from upon the wall
Lose the sting of a lover gone

This the trip, trip on baby come along
This the trip, trip on with your give me some
This the trip, trip on baby come along
This the trip, trip on with your give me some

I donít need no, hang my head
Love is proud or love is dead

This the trip, trip on baby come along
This the trip, trip on with your give me some
This the trip, trip on baby come along
This the trip, trip on with your give me some

Bottle Rocket
Living is like sunshine for you
Holding my hand
Babyís breath and kiss of fire from you
Loving is everything
The touch of you is more than I can handle
So sweet and heavy

Hand over my heart
Loving you
Loving youís like a bottle rocket
Iíll take my chances round and round
Loving youís like a bottle rocket

Red lights and nights of fire only
Alone youíd be deadly
Sweet wind the waters edge, softly, fragile but willing

Hand over my heart
Loving you
Loving youís like a bottle rocket
Iíll take my chances round and round
Loving youís like a bottle rocket

And all this time Iíve changed all alone weíll burn to dream of loving
And all the things weíve done to believe this kiss would stand for something
And all this time Iíve spent all alone weíll turn to stop our running
Youíd slow the moon and sun if you could
This kiss would stand for something

Hand over my heart
Loving you
Loving youís like a bottle rocket
Iíll take my chances round and round
Loving youís like a bottle rocket

Know What You Mean
Hey man come on over here let me play some of nothiní for your ears
I sat down and listened to him say love keeps gettiní in the way
How many times will I fall in love with a girl that was my friend you see
Love is a hole in the middle of my hall, like a well that has no end
and I said

Oh yeah, I know what you mean
ĎCause a friend in love is a friend in need
Thereís a soul out there that yours wants to find
Set your spirit free and I said
Oh yeah, I know what you mean
ĎCause a friend in love is a friend in need

She said hey man, come on letís go, let me tell you something that you donít know
Well I paced the floor and listened to her say love keeps gettiní in the way
How many times will I fall in love with a boy who was my friend you see,
Love is a pole that blocks the door with a key the boy canít lend and I said

Oh yeah, I know what you mean
ĎCause a friend in love is a friend in need
Thereís a soul out there that yours wants to find
Set your spirit free and I said
Oh yeah, I know what you mean
ĎCause a friend in love is a friend in need

I tried to find some reason why I know our love is better but Iíve been sinkiní
Iíve been sinkiní
Well I tried to find a corner in my mind leave it all behind, but Iíve been thinkiní
Iíve been thinkiní
We can put it all together babe, weíve got plenty of time
I remember sittiní Ďneath the stars, talkiní Ďbout love in a broken down car
He said what are we gonna do weíve lost our way and love keeps gettiní in the way
Well I replied to the question on his face said loveís not a time or convenient place
Youíve got rocks in you shoes you gotta fly, if itís love there is no question why

Oh yeah, I know what you mean
ĎCause a friend in love is a friend in need
Thereís a soul out there that yours wants to find
Set your spirit free and I said
Oh yeah, I know what you mean
ĎCause a friend in love is a friend in need

Nobodyís Home

You and I we belong here
Weíve been liviní here
For a long time
We have a right to have them serve
We have a right to know whatís going on
We have a right to have them show the way they feel

Iíve been wondering if you can see
Iíve been wondering if you can feel
Thereís a fire and itís in our home and weíre burniní and burniní, weíre burniní
When youíre drinking your morning coffee
Do you feel the breath on your neck
If all the youth were at the White House knockiní
Would you whisper nobodyís home

The wise man said the wicked surely must rule world
The deep of soul and mind were made for somethiní more

Men of peace are drawn and slain
Born to lead but die in vain
While the shallow carry on the money war

Iíve been wondering if you can see
Iíve been wondering if you can feel
Thereís a fire and itís in our home and weíre burniní and burniní, weíre burniní
When youíre drinking your morning coffee
Do you feel the breath on your neck
If all the youth were at the White House knockiní
Would you whisper nobodyís home

Nobodyís Home

Flesh And Bones

Whatís within us
Is all around us
Not a boundary
These flesh and bones
Something might
Something startling
Realizing what we are when weíre alone

Hold me in Iíll come undone
Hold me in Iím sinking, sinking for these
Flesh and bones Iím inside these eyes
Sometimes I canít sleep at night
For these flesh and bones make so much of me
Youíre still in me and on my mind
These flesh and bones, bones, bones

Up the ladder
Genetic make-up
Spells the code for you and me
Animal instinct
Chemical magnet
You came my way could you be done with me

Hold me in Iíll come undone
Hold me in Iím sinking, sinking for these
Flesh and bones Iím inside these eyes
Sometimes I canít sleep at night
For these flesh and bones make so much of me
Youíre still in me and on my mind
These flesh and bones, bones, bones

Whatís within us Is all around us
Not a boundary these flesh and bones

Perfect

Sugar plum soft your fingers
Holding on is like holding my breath
Letting go you leave it stained and tainted
Giving up is like birth and death

I am not perfect
I have been what you need
Youíll sleep and sweetly slumber
You will blink and Iíll be gone

How can I be glad for giving
Iíve been shoved down to my knees
Iíve been good and Iíve been praying
Iíve been lied to and itís so easy

I am not perfect
I have been what you need
Youíll sleep and softly slumber
Youíll blink and Iíll be gone

Sugar plums soft your fingers
Holding on is like holding my breath
Letting go you leave it stained and tainted
Youíve been given up like thereís nothing left

I am not perfect
I have been what you need
Youíll sleep and sweetly slumber
Youíll blink and Iíll be gone

I am not perfect

Say Good-Bye

Candles burning all the shadows flicker flashing
The sound of grace always reminds me of you
I hold myself now thereís no one else here to hold me
I want to make it through got to make it through
All the kingís horses and all the kingís men
Couldnít keep me from believing
I leave a letter on the pillow of your empty bed
Sheís holding you but this much is true

We said Iíll never say good-bye
Too much to ever say good-bye to you
Iíll never say good-bye
Too much to ever say good-bye to you

Happy ever after never comes to pass
But all the while we were ever dreaming
The taste of someone new and wash it all away
Thatís the human way we push it all away but we said

Iíll never say good-bye
Too much to ever say good-bye to you

Iíll never say good-bye

Tumbliní Down

Could you be down for the unity all right
Down for the struggle
Love is love is everything
But itís harder to be good
Some will seek the darkness to be brave
Seek and ye shall find it
Some will sit and wait to be saved
Take it when you should

If the walls come tumbliní down
Crashing down, tumbliní down
All at once will you come around
Crashing down, tumbliní down

Could you be down for divinity all right
Down for my brother
All is all is everything
But itís harder to be good
Some will live for honesty
The change is ever coming
The light and dark in everything
I know itís harder to be good

If the walls come tumbliní down
Crashing down, tumbliní down
All at once will you come around
Crashing down, tumbliní down

I know itís harder to be good

Under The Sun

Sun is shininí and the waters much to low
Fire across America
Where the hell you think weíll go
A drop of rain is good for everything
But the needleís in your vein
You want it easy
You just take it, take it

Sheís burniní
Mother heaven
Our homeland
Burniní under the sun
Sheís burniní
Mother heaven
Our homeland
Burniní under the sun

Someday youíll be kickiní it
But itíll be all right Ďtil then
You fuck it up Ďtil you get enough
Thinkiní time will be your friend
Everyday is just another day
But the needleís in your vein
Take what you donít need
You just waste it, waste it

Sheís burniní
Mother heaven
Our homeland
Burniní under the sun
Sheís burniní
Mother heaven
Our homeland
Burniní under the sun

And the time will come, your children will say you lied
Rivers dry it donít run
You cannot deny
As it is within it will be outside
And the time will come
And the time will come

Sheís burniní
Mother heaven
Our homeland
Burniní under the sun

Shelter

Rain come down, come falling down
Purified with no shelter
All at once you leave all at once
Testify that what you want is mine

And the dreams are waking me
All the dreams Iím wanting you

Sheíll close her eyes
And dream of shelter
She wonders why
She dreams of shelter
And all she wants is your shelter
She wants your shelter

Rings and chains then no rings and chains
In the box put your memories
Holy day, give your love away
Then youíll say that what you need is time

And the girl is shaking
All her dreams youíre breaking in two

Sheíll close her eyes
And dream of shelter
She wonders why
She dreams of shelter
And all she wants is your shelter
She wants your shelter

And the girl is shaking
All her dreams youíre breaking in two

Some Things Are Free

Wanna feel thy nerves and ink my skin
I want it, I need it
Wanna fight the man my skinís worn thin
Heís got it, we want it
Pictures and needles in my skin
They canít understand it

Live in the sunshine
Thatís where Iíll be
Sleep by the street sign
Some things are free
Nothing is easy
Iíll take my time
Ride into heaven
Some things are free

Wanna drink my love from angelís hands
I want it, sheís got it
Iíll be good as gold with all my friends
Weíve got it, they want it

Tangles and tangles in my hair
Youíll get what your payiní

Live in the sunshine
Thatís where Iíll be
Sleep by the street sign
Some things are free
Nothing is easy
Iíll take my time
Ride into heaven
Some things are free

Pictures and needles in my skin
They canít understand it

Live in the sunshine
Thatís where Iíll be
Sleep by the street sign
Some things are free
Nothing is easy
Iíll take my time
Ride into heaven
Some things are free
