1. Winner's Blues  

[Thurston]
...for by the away, go out not today (?)
move back along and wait a long long time
nothing running free, you gotta time it all
run out the door come back when you score
new times will come and you will see a door
into the lion eye and now i'm gone
and it's out
and it's not what you thought it was about
but a life, that you know
will keep you bound in...

sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
sometimes you got still the blues for me
I could run away, a long time to stay
burn out your eyes, burn out surprise
look out today you know it's not the same
it's all the rage, it's every day
and it's out
and it's not what you thought it was about
but a life, that you know
will keep you round in love





2. Bull In the Heather top

[Kim]
10, 20, 30, 40
tell me that you wanna hold me
tell me that you wanna bore me
tell me that you gotta show me
tell me that you need to slowly
tell me that yr burning for me
tell me that you can't afford me
time to tell yr dirty story
time f'r turning over and over
time f'r turning four leaf clover

betting on the bull in the heather

10, 20, 30, 40
tell me that you wanna scold me
tell me that you a-dore me
tell me that you're famous for me
tell me that yr gonna score me
tell me that you gotta show me
tell me that you need to sorely
time to tell yr love story
time f'r turning over and over
time f'r turning four leaf clover
betting on the bull in the heather

as I spleen my name in flame

9. Quest for the Cup top

[Kim]
yr the thrill of a million
walking down the sidewalk
feel like an alarm clock
woke up and dressed up
don't look like a t-shirt
I feel just like a donut
come and take the trash out
what's the use of crying
don't look like a bummer
feel just like a burger
can I make him like me
do you feel like I do
don't look like a slip skirt
I feel just like a poser
I don't look like an angel
I GUESS I'll put some jeans on
make my lips look redder
true you still look better

this is for Lisa

ran away to the west
faxed my mom for the test
couldn't stay for the rest
then I met him Jess
he is just the best
we kissed right under a tree
I felt so salty free
I felt so salty free
I felt nothing like me

I felt so s-a-lty free

[Tape]
all your dreams will come true, all my dreams came true
but now, I have a bunch of other dreams, ta-dum-dum
it's gotta be hot hot (?)

[Kim]
I felt so s-a-lty free





10. Waist top

[Thurston]
guess who came round today
X-Girl and the girl snoo-pee
twinkle toes and sparkle eyes
everything is a new surprise
they're gonna spend some super-cash
spend it all on the boy-smash
and all the glamour is all the time
silver jacket and a twist of lime
well hope you don't waste away
yeah hope you don't waste away
you better not waste away
ooh yeah don't waste away
I've seen it happen before
girl slipping out the door
sneaking into Agnes B.
throw away everything
you've been a waste away
you've been a waste away
you've been a waste away, now

walk up to her and say
I'd love you anyway
sweet subtle super style
wonder how to make an angel smile
don't let me waste away
don't let me waste away
don't let me waste away
don't let me waste away, wow!





11. Doctor's Orders top

[Kim]
take one, to come
doctor's orders, no more borders
take one, make some
feeling bolder, no more disorder

mother's not to blame
she's feeling no pain
doesn't feel the drain
she says it's not her brain

all right, no wrong
she used to be cleanin', now she's just dreamin'
she's right, you're wrong
she thinks it's the weather, feels light as a feather

mother's such a mess
she forgets how to dress
she thinks she's lookin' her best
she's no longer depressed

take one, bake one
used to be tragic, now it's like magic
just one, for fun
mother's new pet, it's not hard to get

mother came home today
wearing a big bouquet
she threw her self away
she's taking up spanish ole





12. Tokyo Eye top

[Thurston]
Tokyo eye, Tokyo crying somewhere
seeking inside, supermen sighing nowhere
seven to nine, luck is around this sun bear
fur in the night, Kansai woman goes out
soak in the eye, Osaka crying for you
ship in the light, sing in the water sun dew
ticket to die, ticket to ride the junk star
shielded in white, Kansai girl in black dew

Tokyo eye, Tokyo crying somewhere
seeking inside, supermen sighing nowhere
soaking in my eye, soaking in my eye grey leaf
she dig to cry, she dig to cry love funny
fur in the eye, Kansai girl is kiss teen
fun in the light, crying away to sun bear





13. In The Mind Of The Borgeious Reader top

[Thurston]

14. Sweet Shine top

[Kim]
I hear my angel mounted baby
pretend to everlast a lady
Marlboro belt unbuckled baby
they told me you were just crazy
I feel that I could burst
gimme a little drink of yr sweet time
is it the way you think?
or just a pattern of yr glory
is it just some story?
you wrote all for me
do you think yr my home?
down deep yr just a little whorey
I know you, I'm from you
I know you, I'm from you

whoooooow
I'm coming home to Swall Drive

cowboys are languishin'
little girl's are bees
is it really a green stage coach
crawling up to me

I dreamt that you were my vacation
woke to find desire and dislocation
yr always heavy in rotation
coming on, flirting with the nation
I feel that I could burst
gimme a little drink of yr sweet shine
why is the way you grew (?)
still in the soul wanting you (?)
smelling the nite jasmine
hypnotises me
the flower tells me stories
that make me sick and free
I know you, I'm from you
I know you, I'm from you

whoooooow
I'm coming home momma, to Swall Drive

Alice is a chain store
down past 1st and Vine
you can shop there anytime
it's all very fine
look his hair is colored, do you think he grows
look it's changing colors, it's bigger than a hose (?)
look it's changing colors, it's bigger than a rose (?)
look it's changing colors, it's bigger than a pose (?)
look it's changing colors, it's bigger than a hose (?)
look it's changing...
