You are my sword.
Your love is it's own reward.
My heart, I have found,
Gets carved surely by the pound.
God knows. I tried,
Tried to hold you with all my might
But time has won,
And I could never be that strong.
(Don't cry) I couldn't be that strong,
(Don't cry) That used to be my favourite song.
Ever since the world began
Men have sailed to foreign lands
And the fortunes that they've found
Are now buried in the ground.
Some would say the ocean roars
As it stumbles to the shore
But to me it only sings
Of the sorrow that it brings.
All my friends are dead
Or they're dying.
Hayride To Hell
Charlie was a driver
And he hardly spent
A night at home
He rarely saw his family
Those long weeks on the road
And Charlie would drive
For miles and miles
In The Wild
I will drive down Highway One
It's the end that's just begun
And I'm cruising 110
Going nowhere, the road is my best friend
White Line Fever has got in my blood
I'm a river running full flood
One road all around this land
Like the lifeline in my hand
Out from nowhere the radio sings
Mars Needs Guitars
I'm primitive, I'm a primitive man
I got a primitive girl, we make primitive love
I'm a stone age Romeo, I got a space age Juliet
We make primitive love 'cause I ain't got a TV set
I'm primitive that's what I am
I'm your primitive mate, I wanna be your man
I want you darling, you know I'm hip
Fly me to Venus, in a real gone rocket ship
Dear John, so begins a famous old story
Goodbye,au-revoir, thanks for the memory
Keep it short and sweet if you really care
D I vor C E can be so hurtful
It makes public property of things that are personal
All the friends and family get their share
Ink is black, as black as night
Black as thoughts that shun the light
