this is the night of the expanding man
I take one last drag as I approach the stand
I cried when I wrote this song
sue me if I play too long

Well, Frankie Lee he trembled
He soon lost all control
Over ev'rything which he had made
While the mission bells did toll
He just stood there starring
At that big house as bright as any sun
With four and twenty windows
And a woman's face in ev'ry one.

Well, up the stairs ran Frankie Lee
With a soulful bounding leap
And foaming at the mouth
He began to make his midnight creep
For sixteen nights and days he raved
But on the seventeenth he burst
Into the arms of Judas Priest
Which is where he died of thirst.

No one tried to say a thing
When they carried him out in jest
Except of course, the little neighbor boy
Who carried him to rest
And he just walked along alone
Whit his guilt so well concealed
And muttered underneath his breath
"Nothing is revealed".
Well, the moral of the story
The moral of the song
Is simply that one should never be
Where ones does not belong
So when you see your neighbor carryin' somethin'
Help him with his load
And don't go mistaking Paradise
For that home across the road.

Peering out of tiny eyes
The grubby hands that gripped the rail
Wiped the window clean of frost
As the morning air laid on the latch

A whistle awakened someone there
Next door to the nursery just down the hall
A strange new sound you never heard before
A strange new sound that makes boys explore

Tread neat so small those little feet
Amid the morning his small heart beats
So much excitement yesterday
That must be rewarded must be displayed

Large hands lift him through the air
Excited eyes contain him there
The eyes of those he loves and knows
But what's this extra bed just here

His puzzled head tipped to one side
Amazement swims in those bright green eyes
Glancing down upon this thing
That make strange sounds, strange sounds that sing

In those silent happy seconds
That surround the sound of this event
A parent smile is made in moments
They have made for you a friend

And all you ever learned from them
Until you grew much older
Did not compare with when they said
This is your brand new brother
This is your brand new brother
This is your brand new brother

Well what's this husband of yours ever given to you?
Oprah Winfrey on a plasma screen,
and a brood of jug-eared buck-toothed imbeciles,
the ugliest f*ing kids I've ever seen.
Oh baby I want you,
yeah I want you to be my girlfriend.

Seems so glad my place is full
When you're dancing all my way
What a cruel way to treat a friend
Live my life in dignity
Well I must confess
Looking for a place
Everybody has to demonstrate
Everybody has a C-U-A
Figure out a real way to see
Mine is the love that you give
Remember all the things that you've seen
Doesnít all the goal there was seen
Nothing I could f***-up in years
Love got a little seers
Giving me a real sev of seers
Spering me my P-A-s-D
Giving lot of hole lot recieve
Heaven sent T-N-T
Ohh, canít go for the loves and
I canít go losing my mind
I remember all the years that I tried
Buried in a P-A-S-D
With all love and many day and
Many night droped in hey
Troubled in a heaven fantasy
Heaven knows what Iím gonna do
Living in a lonesome avenue
Darling Iím a P-L-S-D
Going all the love I receive
K-A-I-E-E- E-L-E-I-S-O-N
Everybody, knows god demonstrate
Everybody has a T-A-U
These the things that I would do
Figure out a real avenue
What matters is the love that you give

:D I saw them again before Christmas, Nick held my hand while he was singing the "I just want to relax, oh baby I want you" bits, it was freaking awesome.

 There's a man I meet
 Walks up our street
 He's a worker for the council
 Has been twenty years
 And he takes no lip off nobody
 And litter off the gutter
 Puts it in a bag
 And never thinks to mutter
 And he packs his lunch in a Sunblest bag
 The children call him "Bogie"
 He never lets on
 But I know 'cause he once told me
 He let me know a secret
 About the money in his kitty
 He's gonna buy a dinghy
 Gonna call her Dignity

Laying here in the dark you're like an angel on my chest
Just another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness
Remember all the movies, Terry, we'd go see
Trying to learn how to walk like heroes we thought we had to be
And after all this time to find we're just like all the rest
Stranded in the park and forced to confess
To hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets...

All of "Shivers" by The Birthday Party (written by 16yo Rowland S. Howard, go watch Autoluminescent if you can, great docco), but particularly

I've been contemplating suicide,
But it really doesn't suit my style.
So I think I'll just act bored instead,
And contain the blood I would've shed.

and

But my baby's so vain,
She is almost a mirror.
And the sound of her name,
Sends a nervous shiver down my spine.



INXS - Never Tear Us Apart
I told you,
that we could fly.
Cause we all have wings,
but some of us don't know why.


Bad Seeds - Red Right Hand
You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan,
designed and directed by his red right hand.


Icehouse - Great Southern Land
Standing at the limit of an endless ocean


Elbow
- Grounds for Divorce
I've been working on a cocktail,
called grounds for divorce,
woah. (yes, the woah is a must :P )

- The Fix
The redoubtable beast has had Pegasus pills,
we'll buy him the patch in the Tuscany hills,
and the Vino di Vici will flow like a river in spring,
now the fix, the fix is in

- The Bones of You
So I'm there
Charging around with a juggernaut brow
Overdraft, speeches and deadlines to make
Cramming commitments like cats in a sack  <----- this line in particular ;)
Telephone burn and a purposeful gait
When out of a doorway the tentacles stretch
Of a song that I know
And the world moves in slow-mo
Straight to my head
like the first cigarette of the day



I love all of the lyrics in these songs, but those are the stand out gold bits ;D
