Take a walk on Madison The handbag hounds are out again I can hear the "oohs" and "ahhs" Rising from the sidewalk sale From the girls in Vogue and the Hip-hop chil It's OK to trap and kill In the name of fashion... It's a lazy afternoon And the papers say the end is soon And the kids are deep in a TV haze And the Middle East is going crazy But what can we do ? Lazy afternoon... Take a walk on Sunset It's a party you won't soon forget I can smell new age coffee Rising from the strip mail chain Cause we need fast food at every turn It's OK to slash and burn In the name of hunger It's a lazy afternoon And the papers say the end is soon And the corporations overgraze So the Little Guy can't get a raise Hey, but what can we do ? Lazy afternoon... It's a big commercial grin It wears me down till I have to give in There's a barcode where my heart should be Oh, TV, tell me what I need I don't care how it get to the store Just gimme more, more... It's a lazy afternoon And the papers say how to move out to the moon Cause the Earth's going down in a toxic haze And our Money goes but the Problem stays Hey, so what can we do ? Lazy afternoon... Hey, so what can we do ? What can we do ? Lazy afternoon...

I've been hanging out in the boredom basement Building up the files on my MP3 Homemade rockets and a load of laundry -- It's been a real party ever since you set me free They say that I'm cool, they tell me I'm strong Everyone says it's better now that you're gone So how come everything feels wrong? I took all the money that I won at the table Got another record and a phat tattoo Everybody says, "Hey whatcha gonna do now?" I've been killing myself trying to keep my mind off of you They say that I'm cool, they tell me I'm strong Everyone says it's better now that you're gone Well maybe everyone is wrong Everyday I'm alone and everyday's long Telling myself it's better since you've been gone So how come everything feels wrong? How could you let me go? After it took so long to find me? Take back your radio -- all of these stupid songs remind me That everything's wrong and it's become plain Even if I am strong, we'll never be the same Everybody says, "Hey, whatcha gonna do now, babe?" Well, I've done it all and still I am thinking of you So don't tell me I'm cool and say that I'm strong Everyone thinks it's better now that you're gone Well I think everyone is wrong Cause everyday I'm alone and everyday's long Telling myself it's better since you've been gone So how come everything feels wrong?

Galaxy Song 04:12
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na There's a fork in the road, there's a spoon in the sky There's a plumb at your door, someone's thumbing for a pie Come and take a ride with me The moon is high -- so am I Come on take a ride and see what lies beyond your kitchen window We are not alone in the galaxy All the countries, full of crazies And they're pulling down the sun, But my pocket's full of posies everyone, everyone Come and take a ride with me and we can have fun-flying-times Come on take a ride and we can mingle with these nursery rhymes We are not alone we are not alone in the galaxy I can see that savagery is locked in all this gravity Why be bound to earthly things when I can skate on Saturn's rings Jupiter is waving as I stand top a Venutian dune And sing a sound to ring around this planetary tune Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na In the dim of my room there's a tiny, little tune And he's looking at the sky for an answer from the spoon We are not alone(x3) We are not alone, not alone in the galaxy(x2)

Once there was a time when I could say I was your friend and you were mine But all that's history I'll never know the reason why you thought That you could hang me out to dry For everyone to see Did you think that I'd lay down ? That I wouldn't sweat it ? You can forget it Did you think I'd keep it down ? You better watch your back I'm coming after you So you better face the fact Cause my mind's a single track You're gonna get your due Single in the guarantee : You ain't see the last of me Pictures of our tiny hands Playing castles or some beach's sands Are lost to crueler games [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/b/bree_sharp/the_last_of_me.html ] Nicer memories now reside In twisted metal on the highway side It's all gone up in flames That I would just let you win ? Did you think that I would cry ? Did you think that I would die ? I'm just beginning And you better watch your back I'm coming after you So you better face the fact You're gonna get your due Cause my mind's in a single track Single in the guarantie You ain't see the last of me I'm not your friend If you think that I'll be leaving You better think again I'll be here till I get even I won't say where or when Only that I guarantie You ain't see the last of me For every vicious deed you spend Payback is your dividend You can bet that you'll see me again...

I've been lost in way-back-when, in clothes I'll never wear again Pony-tails and paper planes and climbing up the tall trees Thinking back to hide-and-seek, everyday seemed like a week Sunday school and cigarettes and kissing at the movies And it's hard cause I really thought that time was moving slowly But I found out it was only Slippin' away One day I found myself with you, saw all my girlhood dreams come true Still, there're other dreams and nothing lasts forever I put braids into my hair, but you don't seem to see them there And in your mind, I think, you're off to California And it's hard cause I really thought that I was in your vision Starry eyes, I see that you've been Slippin' away We are water, we are the sand the wind blows on Before we're here, we are gone gone, gone So it turns in simple ways, now the weeks go by like days Where's that little girl? She's gone and so forgotten And it's strange cause I truly thought that change was nowhere near me And all the time I was really Slippin' away

It's six o'clock, the sun goes down The hotel shudders with the sound Of Grim and Lily's kiss good-bye (Oh, baby, not good-bye) Tired of their life of crime they make a plan for one last time We'll be on an island, far away, all alone We'll be on an island, tucked away, my love We're almost home A painting of a velvet clown Hides enough to skip this town If Grim gets there before his boss He'll pull the final double-cross Lily flicks her cigarette Her face is tight and white and wet, But Grim's so tired of his gun Says, "Lil, I wanna see the ocean" We'll be on an island, far away, all alone We'll be on an island, tucked away, my love We're almost home Time is ticking, pulse is quickening She's sick about the thickness of this plot Her fingers knot, the car is hot and it takes all the strength she's got not to fall apart when she hears the single shot Lily bends to meet Grim's face. As they hold hands, she whispers... "We've come so far, we're almost home, we've come so far. Don't give this up. Don't give this up -- look in my eyes... And you'll see an island, far away, all alone. We'll be on an island, tucked away, my love, we're almost home

I left home at the age of thirteen With a fistful of cash and a dirty magazine Now, I never cared for the things that I seen I just want to be in a dirty magazine Everyone makes sacrifices, everybody's got their vices Some girls got class and some girls got dreams Some girls as sweet as a ripe nectarine Well, I got no big plans and I ain't no beauty queen I just want to be in a dirty magazine Can you speak of my disgraces? Look at all the smiling faces I've been in a gutter, been in a latrine I've been in the back of a black limosine I've been just about everywhere in between And if I had the choice to live dirty or clean I tell you I'd live in a dirty magazine Yes, sir, I would live in a dirty magazine A dirty magazine, a dirty magazine

Morning in a bar Daylight in an old beer bottle The sun's the only star In a sky that went from blue to yellow And it flashes of the scene I made just the night before And the ashes of my great undoing lay scattered on the floor Morning in a bar Me, the Dawn and the Consequences I let it go too far While you were sleeping I was so senseless That's the way it goes And now you'll go and run me out of town Cause everybody knows the Fool I've been I'll never live this down

Half asleep my mind is spinning, Monsters are all around And on the ceiling you are lying naked I am feeling like a shaken doll Latham sends a letter to his pocket friend, "I'm feeling very small" (But I just keep rolling on) Desperation disappear beneath my cover Happiness is waiting in a distant slumber Quieting the monsters with a tiny hand And tiny circles Circling the fuzz, but it's not the buzz I'm after when I come It's the secret, sleepy sand the angels Bring my body when I'm done (But I just keep rolling on) Find more similar lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.com/x8L Desperation disappear beneath my cover Happiness is waiting like a long-lost-lover I could sleep forever (4×)
