Nobody has his own place in the back
He keeps it in ordera neat little shack
And every day he goes down to the beach
Looking for a clam or an oyster to eat
He saidTrn not unhappythere is nothing to fear
I m just trying to disappear
It s not unusualthe future is clear
I m just trying to disappear
He saidI know what I m doingI know who I am
I m the number one fan of the invisible man
He s covered in sweat from his head to his toes
But what he s looking for nobody knows
lt s not there and it s not herehe said
Trn just trying to disappear
Nobody stood in the middle of the street
Where he drew a chalk outline around his feet
Then he smiled and lifted his face to the sky
Flapping his arms like he was trying to fly
He saidI may not make it to that great beyond
But I ll never be found with my feet on the ground
I m pretty far gone but I m still here
Can nobody help me to disappear?
Nobody sat on a bench in the park
Waiting for the day to turn into the dark
Then he waved goodbye to that setting sun
And did a little dance when the day was done
He saidThe shadows loom, it will be night soon
And the stars will shine over a rising moon
I have nothing to lose, I have nothing to fear
I m just trying to disappear
Nobody went for a walk in the rain
I lent him my boots and my walking cane
The cane they found hanging from a tree
But those boots will never walk back to me
He s not far oft but he s nowhere near
That s obvious but it s not very clear
Nobody talksnobody hears
He said Trn just trying to disappear
Listen mannever mind who this is
We ve got your wife
Yeayour better halfyour partner in life
You ll find her Volvo abandoned at the mall
Her credit cards are in the trunk
We don t want that junk
We want the moneyand we want it in cash
Cause there are ten sticks of dynamite stuck togethe with duct tape
They re wrapped around her new permstrapped around her little face
So don t do anything funnymandon t do anything smartor we ll
Blow up her head
Listen manwe ve got your son
Yeayour one and only heir
The scion of your loins the chosen one e picked him up oft the playing field
You ll get bis short pants by priority mail
We need sonne cash to finance our political aims
Put it in your work-out bag and leave it at the gym
Cause there are ten sticks of dynamitestuck together with duct tape
They re wrapped around his little skull just to stop the constant snivelling
And it we don t hear from you by tomorrowwe II
Blow up his head
We ve got your daughterthat s right
Daddy s little girlthe light of your life
And all we want is every penny you ve saved
Empty out your retirement fund and put it in an old suitcase
How do you know we ve got her?
We II send you her little pinkie
You can shove it up your ass and call it stinky
Cause there are ten sticks of dynamite wrapped around her golden locks
And only you have the power to make this stop
And if we don t get everything that we wantwe II
Blow up her head
Forget it man
We re coming after you
We have no political beliefs
We don t want your fucking money
There s just one thing that motivates us
We hate your fucking guts
There are ten sticks of dynamite waiting for you
They ll cover your eyes
They ll muffle your ears
They ll shut your fucking mouth
They ll
Blow up your head
As I was driving around aimlesslya waking dream occurred to me
That everyone I knew had died that day
That my friendsco-workers and loved oneshad all just suddenly passed away
Wellthere were drunken car crashesairline disastersand suicides that were unexplained
And as I drove past familiar scenesstreets and buildings that were a hundred times seen
As a wave of contentment washed over meI wondered what this could possibly mean
As the sun spilled its warmth over the houses and trees
I felt that I was finally free
But you know what they say
The world wasn t built in a day
You know what they say
The world wasn t built in a day no way
I picked up a woman in the parking lot of the local Safeway
WellI had seen her face a hundred times but I never knew her name
And as I drove her home she laughed and she sighed and the strain of the moment passed away
I explained how my father had diedhow I had seen his body and never cried
She let her hand fall on my leg and there she let it stray
When I dropped her off she asked me upI politely said I couldn t stay
And as she walked to the dooras those bags of groceries gently swayed
I turned the wheel and muttered to myselfNo way, man, no way
[Chorus]
Sunset over the mountains and on the harbour that beneath them lay
In long shadows the traffic lights gleamedred and greenthey traced the way
Through a corridor of sidewalkswhere people wandered at the end of their day
I drove to my space on the waterfrontpicked up my guitar and started to play
Alone I sang for the people that I knewfor my friends and familyand for them I prayed
That no storm would come and sweep them upthat no winds would bear them away
I sangYour voice from my throat cries, your heart beats in my chest,
From my head stare your eyes, for you I live and die!
This loneliness is a lie! This loneliness is a lie!
[Chorus]
The streets were empty as I drove homethe air was cool and the sky was dark
Streetlamps cast their mockery of light over ghostly shapes in an empty night
Should I believe in the things I see? Am I in you? Are you in me?
What should I believe? Tell me. What should I believe?
At homeon the porchthe wind in the trees murmured a background for my waking dream
Where I drive through a city with labyrinth streetswhere no one walkswhere no voices speak
Where empty towers above me rise toward an emptystarless sky
Like a cold wind washing over meI saw the meaning of this dream
I felt that I was finally freeI felt that I was finally free
[Chorus]
You lie before me sleepingyour eyes flutter in a dream
Am I in you? Are you in me? What should I believe? What should I believe?
But you know what they say... you know what they say
I keep myself awake at night
I try to stopbut I can t fight
That voice that whispers ceaselessty
The one that only talks to me
It tells me what I have to fear
It spits its venom in my ear
It calculates and carefully
Enumerates its strategies
Round and round its loves and hates
It endlessly reiterates
It never stopsI ve never heard
The silence of that final word
But I ve got to stop talkingI can t stop talking
There is no stopping a brain that keeps talking
I know it s not healthyI know it s not true
I don t even know who I m talking to
But I can t stop talkingI ve got to stop talking
All night and all day I have something to say
I drone on and onthough I know it s not true
I ve got to stop talkingI m not talking to you
The truth around my tongue is curled
A chain of words that binds the world
In a feverall I
Is captured in my commentary
The whythe whothe wherethe when
Let me repeat them all agai n
And then again my voice will sing
The praises of it s babbling
The arguments that I dissect
Are lucidcogent and correct
And if you foolishly object
I ll Gram each word back down you neck
[Chorus]
If I m the talkerhere s the thing -
Just who the hell is listening?
And if I am not tongue but ears
Then whos voice is it that I hear?
I swallowchokeand clear my throat
Here comes another anecdote
A narrative of restlessness
Of what s been done and what is next
Does it love medoes it not?
Will this seduction never stop?
Hear the clacking parrot s beak
That speaks and speaks and speaks and speaks
I ve been sentenced to all the things I had to do
And a naked Image grew out of my hands
A craftsman without toolsI fashioned these for you
Voiceless words and sketches of imaginary lands
Always just we twothe bunter and pursued
With every step I had you and with every step you flew
I can see the glow begin to fade
I can feel there s trouble to be made
My left leg is numb I can t feel my tongue
She cheats meI know it I know itshe cheats me
Sing for us you little shit
Show us all your dirty tricks
For the fever we do long
Sing that filthy little song
This the rapethe rapethe rapethis is the
I realize now that all my tears have dried
All this pain and heartache was just my foolish pride
What difference could there bewhat significance to me
If the moon should fall or if the sun should rise
Always just we twobloody red and thoughtful blue
The naked image grew and stood before my eyes
I m afraid there s nothing left to say
I can see you turn and walk away
My right side is dead
I can t feel my head
She cheats meI know it
I know itshe cheats me
Now we have youthis is fun
From yourself you cannot run
Sing for us that serenade
What it s like to be afiaid
This is thethe rapethe rapethis is the
I walk around like a zombie or a clown
My feet are yellow clay
My head is talking all the timeevery minute second of the day
My knees are weak
My breathit reeks
My face is lined
I have no time
My lips are dry
They re redmy eyes
My palms are viel
I can t forget
She cheats meknow it
I know itshe cheats me
This is thethe rapethe rape this is the
Give me the pushgive me the push
Over the sideover the side
Look in my eyeslook in my eyes
Give me the pushover the side

YouthI see
In your heart the red blood flows
Down like a river to the sea it goes
YouthI see
Through all the troublethe work and pain
You laugh like a child in a warm spring rain
YouthI See
From the heavens the moon looks down
And the lapping of the tide is the only sound
The jungle lurks where the firelight fades
The stars are swimming in a moonlit bay
Women cry in their native tongue
Singing of the days when they were young
Hear the black eyed women pray
For all their lovers who have sailed away
On the altar the incense burns
For all the men who will never return
YouthI see
Muscles ripple across your back
As you grab the rope and hold it fast
YouthI see
Laughing faces at the end of the day
Hands that clap as the music plays
YouthI See
See the temple on the hill above
A black bird circling a nesting dove
See the monks in their crimson robes
Walking single file down a dusty road
In the market the hawkers sing
Of aromatic spice and copper rings
Dice are thrown and rattling fall
At the feet of the soldiers on er ancient wall
And the bones of those who climbed and died
Lie gleaming in the sand on the other side
See all of them dream
YouthI see
A clear horizon the colour of lead
The sea is green like a blanket spread
Over thee
On the sheltering shore the breezes sing
But here the wind like a big bell rings
Over thee
A white-haired King with a withered hand
Bowed to the youth from a foreign land
Behind the curtains a young girl sighed
Basking in the light of his deepblue eyes
The King decreed that the youth should know
Alt the secrets of his treasure trove
But never again would he roam free
From that kingdom he would never leave
The young man lookedthe young man learned
And never to his home did he return
See all of them dream
Life-likea place to live and clothes wear
Life-likestarting here and ending there
Life-likemaximising time and space
Life-likea happy smile upon my face
All this and so much more
Light floods the open door
Blood s rushing to my head
I m standing on the edge of
Life-likecrawling up out of the slime
Life-likestanding in the check out line
Life-likeeyeing all the pretty girls
Life-likedreaming of another world
Where are my freinds today?
What gannes shall we play?
In their hearts I can t see
Nothing looks back at me but life-Iike
A million souls await the call to rise and sing
They stand and fall while in the clouds the angels count the myriad things
Divinity and grace have etched like lines face of God
But here it s very odd
His miracles abound but they arg drown sound of tapping fingers
Life-likea face for every double take
Life-likethe genuineoriginal fake
Life-likein the lies you tell to me
Life-likea reasonable facsimile
Open your hand to me
In your palm I can read
Long life and happiness
It s just like all the restit s life-like life
In the morning I walk beneath a shining
My steps reverberate in beat with the m humanity
Those murmuts fill my ears but the voice never heaf
As I walk along that busy street and though there s nothing to seek
The streak of the tears upon my cheeks are life-like
