Stalker  

[Thurston]
Got me prowling like a police car
i'm stalkin' and walkin' you're my movie star
i know your trailer it glows in the dark
you got that certain something that special spark

i wanna know
what you think of this idea
you and me and no-one else
your friends at work will disappear
and that guy you're with he was never there
every night rewind the dream
tv static sex in flame
you know it's harder all the time
its comin' down real fast in my mind
i will not live without you you you

i gotta give my whole life
i'm comin' knockin' at your door
hear you walkin' cross the floor
now i know where my ambition lies
my love it's right between your eyes
i love you
i gotta love you
i'll get you
i gotta get you
yeh i got you





Genetic top

[Lee]
let me tell you every thought that i've come to
when i think of all the things that you do
i can't see if you're the only one, it's hard to say
and i think it's all the same to me today
i can see you too
if i could just see you this one time
i sit alone, everyone's at home
i see it, i believe
somehow i know it's true
the genetic [kiss] is to me
i live inside of you
i have heard it said before, it'll never happen
had it drilled in since a kid makes my head spin
i'm still looking for these things that i can't find
thoughts just come and go swirling through my mind
i see me and you
then it's him i'm thinking of
we sit alone, no-one else at home
i taste it, i feel [it]
and now i know it's true
your genetic kiss reveals
i'll always be with you

hey baby it's you i'm thinking of
hey baby who do you love?
don't worry baby i'm watching as you sleep
let me whisper some things for you to keep
there's no perfect idea
there's no perfect [fate/faith]
just little stabs of happiness
sometimes a little too late
so keep your eyes wide open
and noone ???? [know what you're made of?]
remember first thought, best thought
try to stay in love





Hendrix Necro top

[Kim]
you think cos i'm a girl
you think you can ignore

(a girl) who knows the score?

i want to be free
i want to be free

The Destroyed Room top

[Kim]
you're not telling what you feel
you just say you can't deal
you're just lying in an ?
you're just saying it ain't real

mom told you
and i'll tell you
you better pick it up
clean up your room

i'm not telling you what to feel
i'm just saying i can't deal
you're just lying like a peel
i'm just saying you ain't real

your mom told you
and i'll tell you
you better straighten up
besides you messed your [s?]

you're so hot
you bet
entangled

tunafish cans, chocolate wrapper,
jello [blobs]?, stuffed gorilla, phone bill,
fax paper, cranberry juice, dirty socks,
cd's, tapes, guitar pick, new snare,
high school year book
come.....in [comb.....and]
all those letters

your mom told you
and i'll tell you
if you make me cry
i'll poke your eye

i'll tell you ['re in for ???]
you're lying in your room
if what you say is true
then i say we're through





That's All I Know (Right Now) top

My nerves all buzzing and my heart is gone
i think it once was different but i might be wrong
there's ghosts in the alttic there's [pus/flys/buzz?] on the wall
but it's alright i don't care at all
cause i'm yours, and you're mine and that's, that's all i know right now
that's all, that's all i know right now

it's dark outside except for pinpoint light
my little all [twos?] got lost in a fight
i [duck/stalk?] outside picking up on the street
i stomp on it once and lay it at your feet
cause i'm yours, and you're mine and that's all i know right now
that's all, that's all i know

oh baby it's dark out there
well oh baby it's dark in here
oh darling i don't care no no
oow

the tv's up against the wall like a painting
but everybody here in the museum's fainting
but i myself have got time for my lips
it's delicious lady, won't you have a sip?
cause i'm yours, and you're mine and that's all i know right now
that's all, that's all i know right now

well i'm yours, and you're mine and that's all i know right now
that's all, that's all i know right now





Is It My Body top

[Kim]
What have i got
that makes you want to love me?
well is it my body?
or someone i might be?
or something inside me?
tell me tell me
it's really up to you
have you got the time to find out who i really am?

what does it take you
to [gain/give/find?] what's on your mind

and take your chance with my first child [time]

Psychic Hearts (from Thurston's solo album Psychic Hearts) top

I know you've had a fucked up life
growing up in a stupid town
your mother was a mixed-up chirp and your father he just fucked around
a little too much for his own good
i'd kill the bastard if i could
i'd kill all the boys w/ their fucked up noise
and all the bullshit they seem to enjoy
the kids at school call you a slut
nothing but a what the fuck are they into, those stupid fools
loser, asshole, suck all the luck
out of the world and you
if i can give it back to you i will
i'll kick their asses all over town, all over town, i'd turn it over
and i don't even know you that well
but what the hell, summer spell(?)
what's it like going out,when no one knows what you're about
abused and used and cut into,by hollow men with nothing to do
you laugh all the time and try to get high, and try to hide behind no lies
they fucked your head up ,that's for sure
your heart is ripped and wrapped in fur
but you know that sex is pity and insane
and magic seems to kill the pain
and the things that go on inside your brain ,make you seem to thinkthat
you're to blame
don't think about it, throw it out, love 'em all a nd say it loud
fight the scum bags that slap you around
scream,be crazy,lost and found
we don't have to tell you what is right
we have all the faith in what's not right
psychic hearts go out to you
a psychic heart arrives to you
and my prayer to you is that you do all the things you set out to do
live your life the way you want
but will you remember one thing for me, i will always love you
i will always love you





Queen Bee And Her Pals (from Thurston's solo album Psychic Hearts) top

*hi thurston moore, this is Miranda from the Midget
Stooges. We've just recorded a new song and I was
wondering if you'd like to hear them. They might be good
on single. Could you come to the school please.*

Sister madness, happy, sadkiss,
came today.
holding court on a fuzzy matress,(?)
wails away.
Mr. muscle, man you've got to stop and think,
that there was a time when God was dressed in pink
sister, chaos, porno, hate,boss
magic cries
power freak afraid to speak if God...decides
so long live Tyler and yeah, Jay Jagger, I know they can.
marital trauma, poor Madonna, I'm the man
hello fucker, meet yr. maker,sick and stained
queen bee and her pals are not the ones to blame.
Will you kill yr. boyfriend for mr, sister dear?
I implore thee, I outscore thee, free and clear
queen bee, queen bee, can't you see me
in yr. mirror.





Kill Yr. Idols top

[Thurston]

Early American top

[Kim]
Nothing but a savage bird

nothing here but a savage bird





Cherry's Blues (from Thurston's solo album Psychic Hearts) top

at night i rock awake
and i look bad awake
at light a rocket lake
alive for cherry's sake

oh burn into your heart
oh burnin' patty smart

without a purple life
without a purple lid
with all the see some crime [???]
with all those candles lit

oh burn into your heart
oh burnin' patty smart
another look at you
factory girl is blue

at night i rock awake
and i look bad awake
at light a rocket lake
alive for cherry's sake

oh burn into your heart
oh burnin' patty smart
another look at you
factory girl is blue
