Song lyrics[edit]

World of Noise (1993)[edit]

  • I call you once a year just around the holiday,
    I still see your in the night lying above me in the grass
    I can't smile.
    • Fire Maple Song

Sparkle and Fade (1995)[edit]

  • I am sick again- just plain sick to death,
    Of the sound of my own voice.
    • Summerland
  • Don't fall down now you will never get up.- Metaphor for quitting drugs, Strawberry
  • It's hard on a girl when the blood won't come when it ought to come,
    Hey, hey, daddy's going away.
    • Pale Green stars

So Much for the Afterglow (1997)[edit]

  • You do what you do, you say what you say,
    You try to be everything to everyone,
    You know all the right people, you play all the right games,
    You always try to be everything to everyone.
  • You say they taught you how to read and write,
    They taught you how to count,
    I say they taught you how to buy and sell,
    Your own body by the pound,
    I think you like to be their simple toy,
    I think you love to play the clown,
    I think you blind to the fact,
    That the hand you hold is the hand that holds you down."
    • Everything to Everyone
  • The prozac doesn't do it for me anymore
    • Normal Like You

Songs From An American Movie Pt 2[edit]

  • Something bad is
    Going to happen
    I can feel it deep inside
    There are shadows
    All around me
    Like a bad moon on the rise.
    • Out of my Depth

  • Out of my depth
    Right from the start
    I feel like I was born
    With an invisible heart
    Out of my depth
    Seems like everyday
    I can't find the words
    To make the good things
    Come my way.
    • Out of my Depth

Slow Motion Daydream (2003)[edit]

  • This is your American dream
    Everything is simple in the
    White and the black
    You will never need to see the grey anymore
    You will never have to be afraid
    When you are happy with the blackjack.
    • Blackjack

  • I don't want to hear you say you're sorry
    I don't want to hear you say we can start all over again
    I think you must think that I am stupid
    Well I might be stupid for the rest of my life
    But I'll never be stupid to you again
    I just want it all to go away.
    • Blackjack
