Now playing: Cherry wine.

Her eyes and words are so icy
Oh but she burns
Like rum on the fire
Hot and fast and angry
As she can be
I walk my days on a wire

It looks ugly, but it’s clean
Oh mamma, don’t fuss over me

The way she tells me I’m hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is red and sweet as cherry wine

Calls of guilty thrown at me
All while she stains
The sheets of some other
Thrown at me so powerfully
Just like she throws with the arm of her brother

But I want it, it’s a crime
That she’s not around most of the time

Way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is red and sweet as cherry wine

Her fight and fury is fiery
Oh but she loves
Like sleep to the freezing
Sweet and right and merciful
I’m all but washed
In the tide of her breathing

And it’s worth it, it’s divine
I have this some of the time

Way she shows me I’m hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

Now playing: Houdini.

Rise above, gonna start the war!
What you want, what you need, what’d you come here for?
Well, an eye for an eye and an ‘F’ for fight
They’re taking me down as the prisoners riot

Got shackles on, my words are tied
Fear can make you compromise
Lights turned up, it’s hard to hide
Sometimes I wanna disappear

When I feel kinda bad and don’t want to stress
I just pass it off on ability
Well, you got what you want, and what you never knew
Perfect gift from me to you

Got shackles on, my words are tied
Fear can make you compromise
With the lights turned up, it’s hard to hide
Sometimes I wanna disappear

(Raise up to your ability)
You never knew what I could find
What would come when we realize
I don’t want to compromise

(Raise up to your ability)
Yeah I’m scared but I disappear
Running around before it corners you
I can’t go because my life’s a wreck

(Raise up to your ability)
I know that you want me
‘Cause it’s simple to see of my ability

(Raise up to your ability)
Yeah you’re undecided
Yeah so I can see that
Yeah I don’t wanna runaway

You gotta focus on your ability
Focus on your ability
Gotta focus on your ability
Focus on your ability

Can’t get what they want to steal
Can’t get what they want to steal
Then they can’t get what they want to steal
Can’t get what they want to steal.

Now playing: Jackie and Wilson.

So tired trying to see from behind the red in my eyes,
No better version of me I could pretend to be tonight.
So deep in this swill with the most familiar of swine
For reasons wretched and divine.

She blows outta nowhere, roman candle of the wild
Laughing away through my feeble disguise
No other version of me I would rather be tonight.
And, Lord, she found me just in time

‘Cause with my mid-youth crisis all said and done
I need to be youthfully felt ’cause, God, I never felt young

She’s gonna save me,
Call me “baby”
Run her hands through my hair
She’ll know me crazy,
Soothe me daily
Better yet she wouldn’t care
We’ll steal her Lexus,
Be detectives,
Ride ’round picking up clues
We’ll name our children
Jackie and Wilson,
Raise ’em on rhythm and blues.

Lord, it’d be great to find a place we could escape sometime
Me and my Isis growing black irises in the sunshine
Every version of me dead and buried in the yard outside.
Sit back and watch the world go by.

Happy to lie back watch it burn and rust
We tried the world, good God, it wasn’t for us.

She’s gonna save me,
Call me “baby”
Run her hands through my hair
She’ll know me crazy,
Soothe me daily
Better yet she wouldn’t care
We’ll steal her Lexus,
Be detectives,
Ride ’round picking up clues
We’ll name our children
Jackie and Wilson,
Raise ’em on rhythm and blues.

Cut clean from the dream at night let my mind reset
Looking up from a cigarette, and she’s already left
I start digging up the yard for what’s left of me and our little vignette
For whatever poor soul is coming next

She’s gonna save me,
Call me “baby”
Run her hands through my hair
She’ll know me crazy,
Soothe me daily
Better yet she wouldn’t care
We’ll steal her Lexus,
Be detectives,
Ride ’round picking up clues
We’ll name our children
Jackie and Wilson,
Raise ’em on rhythm and blues.

Now playing: Sure thing.

If you be the cash
I’ll be the rubber band
You be the match
I’ll be your fuse
Boom!
Painter baby you
Could be the muse
I’m the reporter baby
You could be the news
Cause you’re the cigarette
And I’m the smoker
We raise a bet…
Cause you’re the joker
Truth though
You are the chalk
And I could be the blackboard
And you can be the talk
And I could be the walk

Even when the sky comes falling
Even when the sun don’t shine
I got faith in you and I
So put your pretty little hand in mine
Even when we’re down to the wire baby
Even when it’s do or die
We can do it baby simple and plain

Cause this love is a sure thing

You could bet that
Never got to sweat that

You could be the lover
I’ll be the fighter babe
If I’m the blunt
You could be the lighter babe
Fire it up!
Writer baby
You could be the quote
If I’m the lyric baby
You could be the note
Record that!
Saint, I’m a sinner
Prize, I’m a winner
And it’s you
What can I do to deserve that
Paper baby
I’ll be the pen
Say that I’m the one
Cause you are a ten
Real and not pretend!

Even when the sky comes falling
Even when the sun don’t shine
I got faith in you and I
So put your pretty little hand in mine
Even when we’re down to the wire baby
Even when it’s do or die
We can do it babe simple and plain
Cause this love is a sure thing

Rock with me baby
Let me hold you in my arms
Talk with me baby

This love
Between you and I
As simple as pie baby
Such a sure thing
Oh is it a sure thing

Even when the sky comes falling
Even when the sun don’t shine
I got faith in you and I
So put your pretty little hand in mine
Even when we’re down to the wire baby
Even when it’s do or die
We can do it baby simple and plain
This love is a sure thing
Love you like a brother
Treat you like a friend
Respect you like a lover.

Now playing: Ain’t got no – I got life.

I ain’t got no home, ain’t got no shoes
Ain’t got no money, ain’t got no class
Ain’t got no skirts, ain’t got no sweater
Ain’t got no perfume, ain’t got no bed
Ain’t got no mind

Ain’t got no mother, ain’t got no culture
Ain’t got no friends, ain’t got no schooling
Ain’t got no love, ain’t got no name
Ain’t got no ticket, ain’t got no token
Ain’t got no God

And what have I got?
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what have I got
Nobody can take away?

Got my hair, got my head
Got my brains, got my ears
Got my eyes, got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, got my chin
Got my neck, got my boobs
Got my heart, got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, got my hands
Got my fingers, got my legs
Got my feet, got my toes
Got my liver, got my blood

I’ve got life, I’ve got my freedom
I’ve got the life

I’ve got the life
And I’m gonna keep it
I’ve got the life
And nobody’s gonna take it away
I’ve got the life

Now playing: Mr. Tambourine Man.

Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you.
Though I know that evening’s empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me, I’m branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street’s too dead for dreaming.

Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you.

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship
My senses have been stripped, my hands can’t feel to grip
My toes too numb to step, wait only for my boot heels
To be wandering
I’m ready to go anywhere, I’m ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it.

Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you.

Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun
It’s not aimed at anyone, it’s just escaping, on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences facing
And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, it’s just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn’t pay it any mind, it’s just a shadow you’re
Seeing that he’s chasing.

Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you.

Then take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you.
